Major Winter Storm Blasts Western United States

For the second day in a row a major winter storm is bringing very heavy rain to coastal California and blizzard conditions to the mountains. As much as 11 feet of snow has fallen in the Sierra Nevada Mountains since Friday afternoon. Meanwhile residents of southern California have been warned of mudslides due to the heavy rainfall on soil where little vegetation has been left because of wildfires this fall. Hundreds of thousands of customers have been blacked out in three states and many of them in California could remain in the dark for days because storms ripped down nearly 500 miles of power lines, utility officials said Sunday.
