Snowed-In California Mountain Residents Plead For Help

  • The historic storm that swept through California over the last week—prompting Gov. Gavin Newsom to declare a state of emergency March 1—has passed.
  • But for residents living in San Bernardino Mountain communities, the nightmare has only just begun, as many remain snowed in rationing food, medications, water, and heat.
  • “It’s been about 10 days,” Lake Arrowhead resident Casey McLelland told The Epoch Times. McLelland said the family has lived in the area since the 1970s and they say they’ve never seen anything like this.
  • According to the National Weather Service, Lake Arrowhead received more than 8 feet of snow over the last week. Normally, the region accumulates around 13 feet of snow each year.
