Another storm has hit California with more rain, snow, winds and low temperatures, adding to one of the wettest seasons on record. The storm arrived in Southern California on Wednesday, a day after pelting Northern California.

Damaging winds, lightning, hail and a potential waterspout or tornado are possible in the Los Angeles area through early Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

Last week’s storm in the state was wild. In a 24-hour period, a bomb cyclone slammed the Bay Area, two tornadoes touched down in Southern California and floods displaced residents in the Central Valley. At least five people died in California due to storm-related incidents.
