California is experiencing its worst winter storm in years. The temperature is expected to drop to 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius), a measurement that has not been recorded since 2009. The storm originating in the Gulf of Alaska also caused flooding and blizzards in the south of the State.
In mountainous areas such as Mountain High, more than two meters of snow were recorded. The bad weather also caused flight cancellations and the closure of several major roads, including Interstate 5.
According to local media, at least 50,000 people suffered power outages from the winter storm, with at least 4,900 customers without power in Los Angeles County. At least two people with signs of hypothermia and an electrical worker seriously injured after suffering an accident in the power restoration works were reported.
