A bomb cyclone pounded Northern California this week, killing at least 5 people, toppling trees and power lines, and leaving thousands without power. The storm is just one of a series of atmospheric rivers to hit the region since December.  

As of Wednesday afternoon, more than 76,000 PG&E customers across the Bay Area remained without electricity. More than 24,000 customers along the Peninsula were affected, and nearly 4,000 in the South Bay.
