REDDING - Crews in Redding spent Wednesday cleaning up streets and restoring power following a fast-moving storm that wreaked havoc Tuesday.
Officials say about a quarter of the town remained without power Wednesday night, and several power lines remained down.
Many residents say they were prepared for the storm with generators that they bought after hurricanes Irene and Sandy.
Town officials say highway workers, police and firefighters were all involved in the cleanup, which focused on reopening blocked roads.
Residents say the roads were so bad that they had to park their cars on different streets to go to work or run errands.
Despite the reassurance, residents say they've come to expect a minimum of three days without power, regardless of how powerful a storm is.
