Firefighters Shovel Snow in Storm-Battered San Bernardino Mountains

Firefighters continued to dig residents out of the snow in the San Bernardino Mountains in California on Wednesday, March 8, days after a severe storm hit the area, according to the Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA).

Parts of the San Bernardino Mountains received more than eight feet of snow during a historic winter storm at the end of February, according to the National Weather Service. Many residents were stranded for days as crews struggled to clear the snow from roads and driveways, the Los Angeles Times said. At least 12 people died.

Rain was forecast for Friday, March 10, the weather service said, warning of “some significant impacts in the San Bernardino Mountains due to rain falling on existing snowpack.” Credit: Orange County Fire Authority via Storyful
