One of the most powerful storms hit California on Thursday


The storm triggered flight cancelations and left hundreds of thousands of people in the dark. Multiple accidents on flooded roads and several trees crunched cars completed this bad string of mishaps. In the Los Angeles suburb of Glendora, where the foothills were stripped bare by a major wildfire earlier this year, preventive evacuations were operated. Wind gusts of up to 147 mph were reported Thursday. Some people were killed. A falling tree killed a homeless man in Oregon. A teenage boy died after a large tree fell on the vehicle. More than 150,000 customers left without electrical power in Western Washington. San Francisco experienced the peak of the biggest storm to hit the area in five years. Many properties in the city were damaged by flooding. In Healdsburg, flooding closed all lanes of state Highway 1 from Panoramic Highway to Muir Woods in Marin County. San Francisco International Airport experienced flight delays throughout the day.
