One of the worst storms in decades has battered Northern California and the Sierra Nevada today.
Starting at about 4 a.m. PST, wind gusts of more than 100 mph in the mountains and up to 75 mph on the valley floor ushered in heavy rains. There have been power outages throughout the day in the Sacramento metro area. Telephone and cable services have also been affected.
