Heavy thunderstorms


Heavy thunderstorms hit Northern California this weekend, with powerful winds and lots of rain. Many trees, including old ones, were uprooted or simply broken by the strong winds. This weather is expected to last at least until the New Year. More than half a million people were left without electricity during the week-end. Napa Valley, just north of Bay Area, where many wineries are located, was reportedly flooded as a result of the rain.
