Rains strike California hard

Just to the west, however, Death Valley was delivered a serious punch Friday when rains closed all roads and left 1,000 people stranded in the national park. CalTrans9 crews were working to clear debris from a road to allow 500 staffers and 500 visitors a way out of the park.

Other parts of California received heavy rains later in the day and were under flash flood warnings.
