LOS ANGELES -- Acting California Governor Abel Maldonado has declared a state of emergency in two more counties due to extreme weather and storm conditions that have caused flooding and strewn debris.
Maldonado proclaimed emergencies Friday in San Diego and Inyo counties.
The declaration will allow state emergency personnel and equipment to assist local responders in coping with storm-related hazards and cleanup.
A state of emergency had previously been declared in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Tulare and four other counties.
Department of Transportation officials also announced the reopening Friday of the previously waterlogged State Route 133, a major road into the Orange County town of Laguna Beach.
