And some dare to still talk about global warming…
The state has deployed the National Guard to assist residents trapped in their homes under seven feet of snow
California Governor Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency on Wednesday in 13 counties following a severe snowstorm that trapped people in their homes and cut power to tens of thousands of residents.
The governor also deployed the National Guard to work alongside the Office of Emergency Services, California Highway Patrol and Caltrans to assist in the emergency response in the stricken counties, which include Los Angeles, Nevada, San Bernardino and Santa Barbara.
In San Bernardino county, many people have been trapped in their houses for days due to the unusually intense storm, which delivered as much as seven feet (2.13 meters) of snow in some places. Images posted to social media show houses with their doors open confronting solid walls of snow.
