Sunny California Now Covered in Snow

The rare winter storm that covered the entirety of the West coast of the United States earlier last week has begun to show signs of shifting toward covering the Eastern region of the country. 


This storm has now become a concern for southern states such as Oklahoma and Texas, as well as those in the Midwest such as Illinois and Kansas and currently threatens to disrupt about 80 million americans. 


The storm that began in Canada and made its way over to the States, has done the unimaginable: covered sunny California in heavy rain and snow. The state known for being in a state of eternal summer has been hit with extreme weather conditions, which the southern, and hottest area had experienced for the last time back in 1989. 


The storm system brought an unprecedented and record setting amount of snow to the Sierra Nevada mountain range as 8 feet of snow is what has been averaged at the site in only three days. Furthermore, one of its most famous peaks, June Mountain, averaged an unofficial count of 72 inches of snow in only 24 hours, according to the National Weather Service. This caused the ski resort to close its doors to visitors for the week and until conditions are safe for skiers. 


In the suburban areas, 76, 000 families and businesses had no power on Sunday as a result of the snow or heavy rainfall. The city of Pasadna recorded an astounding 7.84 inches of rain, as Los Angeles got an unusual 4.3 inches. 


This storm is especially concerning to the homeless, which is a recurring problem for the state. With the unexpected cold conditions they are facing extreme low temperatures for which they are unaccustomed to. According to the Los Angeles Fire Department by NBC News, a helicopter rescue crew “hoisted two homeless men stranded on islands of dry ground in the Hanson Flood Control Basin to safety.” The victims were uninjured and were let go. 


The conditions continue to cause struggles for Americans all across the country. This comes at a great contrast to the extremely warm temperatures that other parts of the nation, such as Florida,  had experienced this past week. 


Coverage of this storm will continue to be updated as new developments arise.
