1 dead in California flooding after storm soaks San Francisco

Crews worked to rescue stranded drivers and reopen flooded roadways as the new year began after an intense storm system caused power outages, landslides and flooding in portions of California.

More than 100,000 people were without power in the state on Sunday afternoon, according to poweroutage.us.

In Sacramento County, dozens of people trapped in partially or completely submerged vehicles have been rescued

according to Dan Quiggle, deputy fire chief of the Cosumnes Fire Department.

Quiggle said one person was found dead inside a submerged vehicle at about 10:30 a.m. Sunday.

About 200 miles northwest of Sacramento, a magnitude 5.4 earthquake closed a bridge while crews conducted safety inspections
