Citizens of Los Angeles are being told to prepare for an El Nino of ‘Godzilla’ proportions. The weather pattern is expected to bring harsh storms to an area that has been decimated by drought for the last few years.

Given the arid weather that has affected southern California an increase in rainfall would have be logically welcomed. However, meteorologists say the consequences of El Nino won’t lead to a few extra showers, but rather brutal storms.

Given that the ground is bone dry following four years of drought, it will be difficult for the water to precipitate into the ground, leading to floods and mudslides.

These fears have led to Mayor Eric Garcetti to create an El Nino Task Force, which will unite Los Angeles’ 13 departments to try and prepare for the imminent threat.

“The city must be ready for the immediate effects and the subsequent aftermath that come with heavy rainfall,” Garcetti said at a Friday news conference, as cited by the LA Times. “The actions we take to prepare for any and all of these impacts have the potential to directly affect our livelihoods and indeed ensure the survival of our city.”

Amongst the measures that have been agreed, cellphone providers AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon say they will share network capabilities in the event of a disaster striking the city. Meanwhile, steps are also being made to provide emergency shelter and food if the city was to run out of food.

“If you’re prepared for the big earthquake, you have the fundamentals to be prepared for El Niño,” said Jim Featherstone, general manager of the Emergency Management Department.
