Blizzard pounds Lake Tahoe, avalanche risk high

A blizzard is pounding Lake Tahoe. White-out conditions have made many roads impassable-driving is not recommended. Avalanche risk is also extremely high. Residents of Incline and Crystal Bay are being asked to shelter in place and stay away from windows and doors. Ski resorts are closed. An avalanche was reported yesterday in Squaw Valley. No one was hurt, and no structures were damaged.
