Storm Hits Southern California, Killing at Least 2
« on: February 18, 2017, 01:39:17 PM »


A powerful storm blew into California on Friday, bringing heavy rains and strong winds and prompting the evacuation of nearly 200 homes east of Los Angeles.

At least two people were killed.

The storm was at its most fierce Friday afternoon in Southern California, where it dropped as much as 20 centimeters of rain in one area.

The storm was the latest event in months of rainy weather that has dramatically eased California's years-long drought, but it was not expected to bring significant rain to the state's north, where damage to the spillway of one the country's largest dams prompted the evacuation of 188,000 people.

Officials monitoring the Oroville Dam said they were confident the reservoir could handle any runoff from this storm because they have been lowering the dam's water level since its spillways were damaged last week.
