LOS ANGELES — A powerful storm pounded California with rain and snow Tuesday, leaving one person dead and two others missing after they were swept away by floodwaters in a canal, while a tornado touched down in Sacramento County.


The National Weather Service said the tornado touched down at 1:40 p.m. a few kilometres outside the town of Galt. NBC affiliate KCRA in Sacramento reported that a tin roof on a barn was blown off and took down utility lines. No other damage was reported.


The stormy weather raised concerns it could keep people from voting on Election Day with flash flood warnings in effect in some areas.

In Southern California a current in a canal in the city of Ontario, swept six people away, killing one, the Ontario Fire Department said. Three others were rescued by firefighters and were being treated at a nearby hospital. Crews continued searching for two others amid the downpour.

Heavy rain drenched Orange County, where several very close U.S. House races could determine which party controls Congress. The Republican Party of Orange County urged members to vote early and avoid getting stuck in the rain on Election Day.


“Election day lines are long and typically one to two hours long. Don’t risk getting caught waiting in the rain to cast your ballot,” an email sent by the party Monday said.

The storm, which arrived Monday and was forecast to continue through Wednesday, prompted evacution orders in parts of Southern California, including in the Santa Ana Mountains’ Bond Fire burn scar area.

In Northern California, meterologists warned the heavy rainfall could lead to debris flows and flash flooding in the burn scars of the Colorado and River wildfires.

The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for the greater Lake Tahoe area on Tuesday as heavy snow fell in the region, causing backups in major highways in the area. The agency warned driving in the region would be extremely difficult, if not impossible.

“Be prepared for whiteout conditions and sub-zero wind chills along ridgelines and near the mountain passes,” the agency said in its alert, adding that the hazardous conditions will affect motorists during peak commute times.

Fake Jews

Followers, who are also referred to as “Black Hebrews” or “Hebrew Israelites,” believe that Blacks, Hispanics, and Native Americans are the descendants of the Twelve Tribes of Israel. It should be noted that not all BHI adherents include Native American populations in the Twelve Tribes, but they all agree that white people or conventionally accepted Jews are not members of the tribes. This is a departure from the mainstream understanding of the Twelve Tribes as a reference to Jacob’s twelve sons, who each represent a different genealogical thread of the Jewish population. Similarly, adherents of the white supremacist Christian Identity Movement also claim to be members of the “lost tribes” of Israel.

Hell if I know. I’m just vaguely following it for the entertainment value.

The summary is, the House of Representatives may go to the Republicans, or stay narrowly with the Dems. Looks like the Senate will evenly split (VP Harris has the tie-breaking vote) or maybe a 1-vote majority for Dems.

So we'll stumble along not able to do much big (which is good).

The Red Wave the MAGAhats were gleefully rubbing their hands over. . . failed.

Yep, looks like the republicans seriously screwed the pooch there. They should have done MUCH better. I'm sure there will be much behind the scenes discussion about this mess.

Honestly aside from some of the local campaigns it really felt like they just though everyone was so sick of biden that they'd auto-win. And that's always a mistake.

On the other hand biden probably won't be forced to step down now so they'll be facing him at the election in two years. Hopefully they'll have remembered how to campaign by then :)
