Two sinkholes were caused by heavy rain from a powerful storm that passed through the Bay Area over the weekend.
A federal appeals court has sided with environmentalists and ruled a California developer cannot build a new road into Yosemite National Park.
All roads into Yosemite National Park have been temporarily closed after a major storm dumped snow, caused mudslides and downed trees and power lines.
