SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - The snow has stopped in Shasta County, but the community is still feeling the impacts from the rain and slush.

Many traffic signals are out of order and hundreds have been without power these past few days. 

Redding police have reported several car crashes caused by people not stopping at out-of-order traffic lights. 

Authorities are reminding the public that if a traffic light is not working, it should be treated as a four-way stop sign. 

Redding police say that 2,100 residents are still without power with crews working in the south Shasta View and Girvan Road areas as well as areas of Branstetter and Country Heights. 

Redding Electric Utility has also been working in downtown Redding and surrounding areas to restore power.

Showers are lingering across Northern California tonight and snow levels are dipping to around 5000'. Mostly mountain showers and lower snow levels are on the way for your Saturday and then we'll dry out for your Sunday.
