The Latest: Storm Brought Much-Needed Rain To California

LOS ANGELES (AP) – The storm that drenched California this week brought much-needed rain to the state, which has been slipping back into drought conditions due to a dry winter that only turned wet and snowy this month. Preliminary storm data Friday shows some stunning totals for the three-day storm, including more than 10 inches (25 centimeters) of rain at some locations in the Sierra Nevada and on the central coast, and 31 inches of snow at Tuolumne Meadows in the Sierra. In the agricultural Central Valley, farmers say the storm interrupted some harvests and will delay some planting, but that’s outweighed by the benefit of adding more moisture to the soil.
