A powerful storm brought drenching rain or heavy snowfall to much of California this weekend. The so-called atmospheric river storm was pulling in a long and wide plume of moisture from the Pacific Ocean.

Flooding and rock slides closed portions of roads across Northern California. There were also wide-reaching road closures. This latest storm comes after another recent storm and a second earthquake in the area in a matter of weeks.

Host Deepa Fernandes gets the latest from on the ground.
