Northbound traffic on Interstate 5 leaving Santa Clarita, Calif., near the Los Angeles area Monday, Feb. 27, 2012, face long delays as a cold storm moved across Southern California freezing traffic, slowing or stranding thousands of motorists north of Los Angeles. The storm dumped snow and hail on mountains and brought high, hazardous surf to beaches. The interstate was shut down in both directions shortly after 2 p.m. due to snow in Tejon Pass, which rises more than 4,100 feet between Los Angeles and the San Joaquin Valley, the California Department of Transportation said.
