Jova was a major hurricane in the Eastern Pacific.
Jova formed in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of southwestern Mexico on Sept. 4 and gained strength into a hurricane by Sept. 6. As Jova progressed away from the coast, it weakened in cooler waters.
Jova never made landfall, but sent waves and rainfall to San Francisco and Northern California.
San Benito and Monterey counties saw slight rainfalls, while the rest of Northern California stayed relatively dry. However, swells from Jova reached down the California coast, with the National Weather Service issuing advisories of high surf over the weekend of Sept. 8-10.
