The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department reported Wednesday that twelve people have been found dead after the recent blizzards in nearby mountains — with some of the deceased trapped within their homes.
The Los Angeles Times reported:
[Spokesperson Mara] Rodriguez said at least two other people in San Bernardino’s mountain communities had been found dead through official welfare checks since Feb. 23, when the historic snowstorms started. One was found dead in Big Bear and the other in Valley of Enchantment, a neighborhood in Crestline.
The agency, however, has also responded to nine more deaths since the storms, Rodriguez said — a total of 12.
But many mountain residents who spoke to The Times, some of whom discovered neighbors or friends dead inside their homes, said they had no doubt the enormous storms and dangerous aftermath — the blocked roads, the lack of heat, cellphone service and food — probably contributed, if not responsible for the casualties.
Despite mildly warmer weather, residents of towns like Big Bear, Lake Arrowhead, and Crestline are still digging themselves out of the snow, and many are still struggling to obtain food, fuel, and medicine.

Tennessee has the 8th highest murder rate in the nation.
It ranks 44th among states for health outcomes.
And this is what the Governor is focused on. https://t.co/RPQHFKcn7s

Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) fled the state in the midst of the crisis, vacationing in Baja California after belatedly proclaiming a state of emergency for the blizzard. He continues to spend time on social media trolling conservative states.
He returned from abroad Sunday. On Wednesday, Newsom’s office said he tested positive for the coronavirus.
California Governor Gavin Newsom has COVID again… remind me how many boosters he got…

Where’s Newsom’s mandatory genuflection of gratitude for his 6th Covid booster shot, because “it would be so much worse” otherwise? https://t.co/qlxtjVVSS9
