California Storm Brings Power Outages, Shuts Down Highway

2019-01-07 14:02
Tens of thousands of people lost power on Jan. 6, after a powerful winter storm swept through Northern California, while another storm system in the southern part of the state unleashed mudslides in wildfire burn areas and trapped motorists on a major highway. The deluge loosened hillsides where a major blaze burned last year in and around Malibu, clogging the Pacific Coast Highway with mud and debris. A stretch of the scenic route northwest of Los Angeles was expected to remain closed in both directions until Jan. 7, while crews tow away stuck vehicles and clear lanes. No injuries were reported.
