Snow in our foothills and local mountains forced five school districts to cancel school Monday -- including the Bass Lake School District, Mariposa and Yosemite Unified, and North Fork and Pine Ridge Schools.

There are also significant power outages in the mountain communities. An Action News crew just arrived in Oakhurst and the entire city is without power.

In Southern California the same storm caused flooding and fears of a mudslide.

Officials say flowing mud and debris prompted about 30 people to evacuate their homes in Woodland Hills Sunday because of heavy rain and high winds. The Los Angeles Fire Department said that 12 homes were evacuated. No injuries were reported. Authorities say thousands of weather related outages in Southern California were reported Sunday.

In Northern California, people in Sacramento are on high alert because of rising water. The swollen waters of the Sacramento River are at the edges of roads in Rio Vista.

People in Sacramento County are concerned about the levees and if they will hold up.
