Snowstorm Covers California Highway

A widespread storm brought rain and snow to California on Friday, February 24, as the National Weather Service (NWS) issued winter weather warnings and travel advisories.

Video posted by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) shows an officer driving on the recently reopened Interstate 80 over Donner Summit in Nevada County on Friday morning.

“Let’s work together people and keep the freeway open!” the department wrote on Twitter. “Take your time, slow down, and increase your following distance so we can all get through this together.” Credit: CHP Truckee via Storyful
