Could This Be In California? Hail, Snow, Hecvy Rains Plague Los Angeles Area LOS ANGELES, Nov. downpours, accompanied by brilliant lightning flashes and almost defeating thunder, struck the metropolitan area early today as crews prepared to start'mop- ping up damage from a three-day storm, one of the worst on record this early in the season. Rain totals in the suburbs rock- eted as high as 6.58 inches in fashionable San Marino. Even Long Beach, on the normally dry soacoast, reported 5.56 inches. Phis compared with a mark of .20 for the entire season to date a year ago. Los Angeles' figure was 4.54 inches. Winds up to 57 miles per hour whipped beach cities; snow fell to a depth of five feet at the Los Angeles county playground of Big Pines. Mountain roads were buried in snow and slush; high- ways were washed out and mud- covered; bridges weakened. Hail pelted Hollywood in the early morning, and Beverly Boulevard was covered with a white blanket for some minutes before rain molted it. Two were counted dead, one by automobile and another by drowning, and the disappearance of a Western Air Lines plane with 11 aboard also was directly attributed to the weather. J.C.
