Californians beg for help after unrelenting snow

A series of storms have dumped feet of snow on the mountains of California, leaving people who live in those areas in dire straits and begging for help. The San Bernardino County mountains are one of the hardest-hit places, where emergency supplies are dwindling. Rescues are happening, but personnel must use specialized equipment to reach people, which is slowing down efforts. To make matters worse, another atmospheric river is headed for the Golden State.
