California Governor Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency in several counties amid a winter storm that brought snow to Los Angeles.

Newsom deployed the national guard on Wednesday to assist residents, especially in San Bernardino County, where some have been trapped in their homes for days

The National Weather Service issued wind, freeze, and winter storm warnings throughout the sunny state effective until Thursday as temperatures hit sub-freezing lows down to 26 degrees Fahrenheit in certain areas.

According to the governor’s office, the National Guard is working with local law enforcement to open shelters for residents and help deliver food and water to those trapped. 

Southern California mountain ranges were hit by several feet of snow and residents begged the governor for help clearing the roads as food and water supplies ran low.

‘There are roofs collapsing everywhere, and people needing assistance and rescues. All of the stores are running low on food and water supplies. The gas stations barely have any gas,’ Lake Arrowhead resident Miyah Nelson told KTLA. 

‘We need our roads cleared so that way people can get out of their homes. They’re all trapped.’

The counties named in the emergency declaration include Amador, Kern, Los Angeles, Madera, Mariposa, Mono, Nevada, San Bernardino, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Sierra, Sonoma, and Tulare.

Some areas not included in the declaration were not ordered to evacuate, including residents in Olympic Valley, east of Sacramento.

An avalanche struck an apartment building in the area around 7pm on Tuesday, according to the Sierra Sun. No injuries were reported.
