Strange Storms Creating Mudslides

Breaking Earth News
California, USA
A mudslide closed two roads in the foothill community of Sierra Madre as wet and windy weather bounced through Southern California for a second day.

Sierra Madre police and fire officials are clearing debris from mudslides today on the heels of a wild spring thunderstorm that wreaked havoc across Southern California on Thursday.

The weather conditions were very different from those nearly a month ago, when about 1,000 residents were evacuated from 200 homes in the upper part of Sierra Madre during a wildfire as Southern California broiled in record-breaking heat. The Sierra Madre fire ended up scorching more than 580 acres over a week and primed the area for mudslides.
