Flooding, mudslides: California has been receiving rain for the past few weeks, but some of the state’s mountains are experiencing historic snow accumulations.
The municipality of Mammoth Lakes, located 485 km east of Los Angeles, received 450 cm from Christmas.
If we chart the accumulations since the beginning of November, it is almost 838 centimeters, which fell in the municipality of 7200 inhabitants.
Located at an altitude of about 2400 meters above sea level, the city is accustomed to winter weather and records an average of 450 cm of solid rainfall annually.
On social media, residents and tourists in the area shared some pictures of the icebergs.
Mammoth Ski Resort had to close its doors on January 10 due to heavy snow accumulation.
While another meter of snow is expected over the next three days, the snow has not stopped falling in the region.
In the western parts of the state, rain will be the focus, while officials fear fresh floods.
