Today snow fell in the Golden state after a severe weather system hit the mountain area. Los Angeles was thrashed with over 7 inches of rain. The extreme weather had hurricane speed wind gust of 90+mph which caused tree limbs to snap and a foot of snow to blanket the Napa Valley winery region. The heavy rain caused flash flooding through city streets that led to rescues and closed roads. Power outages across the state surpassed 100,000 mostly in Los Angeles County. Ahead of the storm, the National Weather Service (NWS) issued its first blizzard warning since 1989. The system is moving across the country, so be sure to watch your local news station to stay safe.
