The Northern California was hit by flooding
A week of heavy snow and rain in Northern California and Nevada caused the worst flooding in the last 10 years. 3 men killed in San Francisco.

Emergency crews decided to take advantage of a one-day break between the snow to rescue people and assess damage after the heavy snowfall over the last 10 years, which hit California and Nevada. The flood left thousands of people homeless and forced them to evacuate to a safe area. The next strong storm hits Northern California today.

These breaks between the snowfall, " save us from the big water," said fire chief Max Ming. Rescuers used rafts and a helicopter to search for people cut off from the land. The snowfall and rains that fell on California and Nevada last week are part of the "atmospheric river." This system, known as the "Pineapple Express," poses catastrophic risks to areas affected by rain.

Yosemite national Park reopened to visitors on Tuesday morning after it was closed at the weekend and on Monday due to a swollen river, said press Secretary Scott Park, Gediman. He said guests will have the opportunity to return since 8 am. Park workers checked the extent of the damage from the storm to the water supply and Sewerage, he said.

Over the weekend, many trees fell and blocked cars and homes in the Bay area of San Francisco. Motorists stuck on flooded roads was saved. The city itself has fallen more than 2 inches of rain. A giant tree fell across the highway in Hillsborough South of San Francisco, injuring the driver, who was unable to stop in time and drove into a tree. And a woman were killed Saturday by a falling tree while she went for a walk on the Golf course. To the South, near Los Angeles, the passengers were warned of possible floods and landslides in mountainous areas. Rescuers in Nevada were evacuated about 1,300 people from 400 homes in the area Reno.
