El Niño, the climatic force behind San Diego’s recent major storms, caused lots of local flooding.
Aside from Mother Nature, who else can we blame for our roadways becoming waterways?
City officials and state regulators are part of the problem.
The city is supposed to clear waterways to prevent flooding, but officials have only cleared a small portion of them. They say that’s because of stringent red tape imposed by the state.
State regulators and local environmentalists point fingers back at the city and its building policies.
On this week’s San Diego Explained, VOSD’s Ry Rivard and NBC 7 San Diego’s Monica Dean dive into the El Niño flooding issue.
