A powerful storm from the Pacific Ocean hit the west coast of the United States (US) on Sunday, bringing "life-threatening flooding" to California. The state's Governor Gavin Newsom has declared a storm-related state of emergency in several counties to support the ongoing relief situation. The mix of warm Pacific air, strong onshore winds, and cooler air could lead to thunderstorms and torrential rain, the weather department said.
