 Snow in Malibu
Frigid Storm Closes California Freeways
______________________________




18 Dec 08 - Snow snarled traffic on major mountain highways and even dusted Malibu on Wednesday as a cold storm hit parts of California.

Snow shut Interstate 15 over 4,190-foot Cajon Pass east of Los Angeles and roads through the San Gabriel Mountains.

Interstate 5, a major trucking and travel route connecting Southern California with the Central Valley and Northern California, shut down in the afternoon as conditions deteriorated. Massive backups developed below all the passes.

Several vehicles collided and slid into ditches on Interstate 8's mountainous grades as heavy snow fell at the San Diego-Imperial County line.

Late in the afternoon snow fell in the Malibu area.

More severe cold was on the way, the National Weather Service said.

Freeze warnings were issued for the Sacramento Valley, the northern San Joaquin Valley  the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta region, and far north San Francisco Bay area valleys, among others.

"These conditions will kill crops and other sensitive vegetation," the NWS said.
