Well, this sounds like things could get "spicy" here. Few people hereabouts are prepared for any significant snow. The last time we got more than about four inches, they called it the Snow-maggeddon.
“A significant winter storm will move into the region late Tuesday and persist into Friday. Very low snow levels to start with strong winds are expected. Snowfall will be possible down into the Northern Sacramento Valley late Tuesday into Wednesday morning with the cities of Redding and Red Bluff expected to receive multiple inches of snow. Snow levels will generally rise to 3000 ft or above Wednesday afternoon. An abundance of snow will be possible in the Sierra and southern Cascades with this storm that will make travel very difficult to impossible through Friday.”
A strong 6.9-magnitude earthquake struck the Southern Ocean near Antarctica on Saturday, prompting a tsunami alert for areas which are virtually uninhabited, officials say. Small tsunami waves were reported but serious damage or injuries are not expected.
Chile’s interior ministry sent an alert to cellphones around the South American nation telling people to abandon the coastal region, sending people as far north as Santiago into a panic.
Officials later clarified that the alert was a false alarm.
