Earlier on Sunday, organizers of the Ironman California 2021 triathlon announced that the event would also be canceled because of the storm. Less than an hour before the 7 a.m. start of the race, it was announced by Ironman that they could not ensure the safety of racers and spectators.
The storm, which is expected to bring a near-record 4.86 inches of rain to the Sacramento area, knocked down tree limbs and has reportedly brought down power lines and caused flooding along roadways and low-lying areas.MORE NEWS: Rancho Cordova Jumpstarts Job Seeking Programs To Find People High-Paying Jobs
