Scientists have called this winter’s El Nino Godzilla, comparing it to the 1997 El Nino that was previously the strongest on record. Now meteorologists are saying this El Nino is the biggest ever recorded.

It already looks like a winter wonderland in California’s mountains and while most El Nino’s typically impact southern California, this year’s will hit the whole state.

Everyone knows California needs the water, four-years of drought conditions have the state’s largest reservoirs near historic lows.

El Nino comes at a cost though, in 1997 and 1998 winter storms caused half a billion dollars in damage and killed 17 people in California.
