Record Surge in Community College Enrollment in Past 15 Years One Dead After High-Speed Police Chase Ends in Fatal Car Crash into South Milwaukee Creek

Severe weather has caused extensive damage across California, resulting in a state of emergency being declared in several counties.

The storm has caused trees to uplift, sinkholes to open up, and entire neighborhoods to be destroyed.

The north has been hit particularly hard, with several flash flood warnings in effect due to heavy rainfall causing treacherous conditions statewide.

Rivers are overflowing, sweeping away roads, and leaving communities near rivers in Santa Clara, Monterey, and Santa Cruz counties flooded.

One entire Watsonville neighborhood in Santa Cruz County was flooded, with homes along the creek unable to handle the rain.

Despite efforts such as sandbags and tarps, the saturated soil left nowhere for the rainwater to go, resulting in a foot or more of water flooding streets and homes.

Unfortunately, at least two people have died due to the storm, including a 72-year-old man killed by a fallen tree in Santa Cruz and a driver found inside a vehicle submerged in floodwaters in Sacramento.

More than 40,000 homes and businesses across the state are still without power, and state officials fear the number of deaths may climb as the rain continues.

President Joe Biden has approved a state of emergency declaration, providing much-needed relief to residents hit by severe weather since the beginning of the year.

The storm has increased the possibility of flooding or roofs collapsing, especially with more rain expected on top of several feet of snow.

While there are no reports of new damage or emergencies in some areas, several counties remain under flood warnings, leaving many Californians on high alert.
