 Storm left more than 120,000 Californians without power

< p>

A rare winter storm has gripped California. Massive power outages, flooding and highway and beach closures are reported in the US state, according to the BBC.

The storm, set to ease soon, is one of the strongest to hit the state. Strong winds knocked down trees and damaged power lines, officials said. On Saturday, February 25, all beaches were closed for several hours due to lightning strikes in Los Angeles County, authorities said.
More than 120,000 people — many of them in the Los Angeles area — were left without power after several days of high winds.

The main north-south highway on the West Coast, Interstate 5, remains closed in a mountainous area known as the Grapevine.

So far, there have been no reports of deaths or injuries from the storm.
