East Coast Snow vs West Coast Mud
While record snowfalls blanket Washington, DC and up the East Coast, Californians are dealing with mud slides and homes falling down around them.
East Coast (Olympian Snow: A Brief Tour—By: Kathryn Jean Lopez):
AP - Feb. 6: A car crushed by flood waters is buried in mud on Ocean Boulevard in La Canada Flintridge, Calif.
A debris flow damages a home after heavy rains caused mudslides February 6, 2010 in La Canada Flintridge, California. Large wildfires in 2008 and 2009 stripped the hills and mountains of vegetation, resulting in mud and debris flow danger as winter rains pass over foothill communities where thousands of people have been evacuated at times in recent weeks. The threat is particularly high near the San Gabriel Mountains above La Canada-Flintridge area which were denuded of natural flood-controlling vegetation by the 250-plus square mile Station. At least 40 homes have been severely damaged and 500 were evacuated.
