Preliminary estimates put Cal storm damage at over $100 million
The series of deadly storms that pummeled California earlier this month probably cost the state more than $100 million in damage to homes, roads and farms, according to experts still tallying the bill.
Preliminary estimates of damage to just the state's highways and interstate system come to about $50 million, said CalTrans spokesman David Anderson.
"As more assessments are made we expect that number to climb," he said Thursday.
