Los Angeles, Jan 17 (IANS): Another storm lashed California, bringing more rain, flooding and snow to the US Golden State.
A series of winter storms have battered California for weeks, causing mudslides, widespread flooding and damage, Xinhua news agency reported.
At least 19 deaths have been reported in the state in the past two weeks of storms, many from drowning and fallen trees.
