California slammed by heavy rain: Man zapped by downed wire, tree crashes into teen’s room
California residents were impacted by yet another atmospheric river storm on Tuesday and into Wednesday, bringing heavy rain and strong winds.
More than 192,000 customers in the state were without power early Wednesday, according to outage tracker PowerOutage.US.
The National Weather Service said Tuesday that heavy rain combined with snowmelt in terrain below 5,000 feet would result in widespread flooding – particularly in low elevations and areas with shallow and warming snowpack – into Wednesday.
The agency’s office in Los Angeles reported that rain was continuing to move through the Southern California county on Wednesday and that some record daily rainfalls were broken on Tuesday.
