Could a hurricane hit California?

I’d say the claim that it would be the first time is a bit strained. It’s just that they usually turn to tropical storms and end up over Arizona.

The claim is that the water off California is usually cold. And, here comes the author’s clarion cry:

It is being called “the Pacific marine heatwave of 2019”, and officials are warning that it could have very frightening implications if it does not dissipate soon. Right now, there is a vast expanse of water stretching from northern Alaska all the way to southern California where the water temperatures have rapidly risen to very dangerous levels. In fact, in some spots the water temperature is already “as much as 6 degrees Fahrenheit above normal”, and there is a tremendous amount of concern about what will happen if the water continues to become even warmer. At this point things are already so bad that we are being warned that this strange anomaly could “ravage marine life and decimate commercial fishing” all along the west coast.

He does everything but hint that this is all the fault of human-caused climate change.

I also just read a piece that says fewer hurricanes will hit the USA this year because of the current path of the jet stream.

Oh yeah, the three storms in the eastern Pacific are technically cyclones.

The mountains at the south of the peninsula will ease some of the storm’s force but a lot of small villages will suffer.
