CNN is reporting on a massive storm hitting California. 

Southern California is experiencing severe flooding due to a heavy rainstorm, with at least two fatalities caused by falling trees and over 16 million people under a high risk of excessive rainfall. Downtown Los Angeles has received 75% of its annual rainfall in just the second month of 2024. The storm has significantly disrupted travel and power supply, leading to the closure of the Pacific Coast Highway in two places, the cancellation or delay of thousands of flights, and power outages affecting over 200,000 customers. Scientists attribute the enhanced rainfall and the storm's destructive power to the climate crisis and El Niño conditions.
