California is experiencing widespread power outages, flooding, and road and beach closures as an unusual winter storm hits the US state.

After days of violent winds, more than 120,000 people—many of them in the Los Angeles area—are without electricity.

Interstate 5, the primary north-south highway on the West Coast, is still closed in the rugged Grapevine region.

One of the strongest storms to ever hit the state is expected to weaken.

Unrelenting winds have caused power lines and trees to fall.

Due to lightning strikes in LA County on Saturday, all beaches were closed for a period of time, according to the authorities.

Also, there were reports of grounded flights in the area.

Just after 20:00 GMT on Saturday, the National Weather Service (NWS) issued a bulletin warning of severe thunderstorms and heavy rainfall over Southern California (12:00 local time).

“As the front moves inland, snow will move over the Northern Intermountain Region and into Northern California on Sunday morning,” the NWS said.

Sacramento, the state’s capital, has issued a travel advisory for the days of Sunday through Wednesday due to the return of rain and snow.

A precautionary state of emergency was proclaimed in one county in Oregon, California‘s northern neighbor.

The authorities claimed that by doing this, it would be possible to promptly allocate the required tools and resources in the event of a later request.

There haven’t been any reports of storm-related fatalities or significant injuries up to this point.

Snowflakes were observed falling earlier this week in Los Angeles, a city renowned for its palm trees and sun-kissed boulevards.

A snow flurry encircling the Hollywood sign on Mount Lee was a spectacle that locals were spotted marveling over.

Then on February 24th, San Francisco saw its lowest temperature in 132 years, dropping to 39 degrees Fahrenheit (4 degrees Celsius) on Friday morning.
