Every region of the Sierra Nevada has more than 200% of its typical snowpack for this time of year.
Trees fell and wires were downed in San Francisco as a powerful storm hit California and prompted evacuation orders in other parts of the state Wednesday, officials said. Gov.

In Southern California, the heaviest rain was forecast for Wednesday night through Thursday.
