COLUSA COUNTY, Calif. - Two men died and one dog was badly injured on Monday after a plane crashed into a pond in Colusa County. 

The Colusa County Sheriff's Office received a report from the Federal Aviation Commission on Jan. 7 around 12:15 p.m. of a possible downed private aircraft two and a half miles south of Colusa.

The first weekend of autumn was pleasant for northern California, but our relatively tranquil weather will change soon. A Pacific storm is approaching the West Coast, and it will bring our area rain showers and gusty wind soon.
