State of emergency as storms pound California

Half a dozen southern California counties are under an emergency declaration Wednesday as another powerful storm from the Pacific pummels the region, CNN said. The declaration from Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger warns of a forecast that calls for “extraordinary and continuing rainfall” that is likely to cause more flooding and landslides in the region and authorizes state assistance for local authorities. The proclamation covers Kern, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Luis Obispo and Tulare counties in southern California.
