As Southern California Edison crews continue to monitor the rain in the Southland, a group of 20 four-man crews are helping with repairs in Northern California in a mutual assistance effort as record storms continue to flood streets and bring down trees. After completing repairs in Half Moon Bay, the crews are now in Santa Rosa.
