Manufacturing Assembly worker Terry Young, 24, of Rialto, Calif., uses a sheet of plastic to protect himself from a downpour Friday, Feb. 28, 2014, as he jumps a flooded parking lot from a wood pallet to get to a food truck during his break in Anaheim, Calif. The first wave of a powerful Pacific storm spread rain and snow early Friday through much of California, where communities endangered by a wildfire just weeks ago now faced the threat of mud and debris flows.
