Storm hits northern Calif.; Southerners ready

ST. HELENA, Calif. (AP) - A
howling Pacific storm lashed North-
ern California yesterday, swamping
roads, snapping power lines and rais-
ing fears of a repeat of January's
disastrous floods.
"The forecast unfortunately is for
continued gusty wind and rain. I think
we'll be in a roller-coaster situation
forat least aday and ahalf," said Pacific
Gas & Electric Co. spokesman Ron
Rutkowski. The company called in ex-
tracrews to deal with more than 140,000
customers without power.
In Southern California, residents
braced for the storm's arrival, espe-
cially in La Conchita, the Ventura
County town where a hillside col-
lapsed Saturday, burying nine homes.
Streams pushed over their banks
in many areas in Northern California;
in St. Helena, a small town in lush
wine country, more than 350 people
were evacuated when the Napa River

Rain was expected intermittently
until tomorrow morning, raising fears
that this latest storm could cause dam-
age rivaling that from more than two
weeks of rain in January. During that
deluge, 11 people died and more than
$300 million in damage was reported.
In Napa, the river rose 7 feet over-
night, and was flowing less than 2 feet
below its banks. Residents of about
20 homes near Napa Creek evacuated
and were being housed in local hotels.
Schools in three counties were closed
for the day.
To the west, near Guerneville, one
of the hardest-hit communities two
months ago, the Russian River was
rising. National Weather Service fore-
caster Miguel Miller predicted the
river would get 10 feet above flood
levels in some areas.
Fierce winds, clocked at 113 mph
on Mount Tamalpais in Marin County,
prompted warnings to motorists of
dangerous driving.

Thurmond endorses Dole for pres.
WASHINGTON-South Carolina Sen. StromThurmond
endorsed the presidential candidacy of Senate Majority Leader
Bob Dole yesterday and was named regional campaign co-
chairman for southern states.
In a statement, Thurmond noted Dole's being wounded in
World WarIIand said the Kansan "served his country in time
of war and he served his country in time ofpeace.... His career
in public service since has been dedicated to positive, conser-
vative change."
Thirty-seven delegates to the GOP convention are up for
Dole grabs in South Carolina's primary next March.
The Thurmond endorsement follows several others by
leading South Carolina Republicans, including the state attorney general and the
father and son of former Gov. Carroll Campbell. The former governor is also said
to be in Dole's camp, but delaying a public endorsement.
Thurmond supported Dole in his 1988 presidential bid as well.

Yolo County Jail Inmate Gary Contreras dams a canal in Madison, Calif.

"The water just came rushing
through," said 67-year-old Don
Coffey, who was chased from his
apartment building to an evacuation
center. "I had water up past my waist.
I was just able to get out with a few

clothes. They are all soaked."
Rain was falling at a half inch or
more an hour in the Santa Cruz Moun-
tains on the central coast south of San
Francisco, and other areas reported that
up to 8 inches of rain fell overnight.

Clinton invites IRA
leader to White House
WASHINGTON - President
Clinton gave approval yesterday for
Gerry Adams, leader of the political
arm of the Irish Republican Army, to
raise funds in the United States and
invited Adams to the White House for
a St. Patrick's Day reception.
Officials described the gestures as
rewarding Adams, head of Sinn Fein,
for moving forward in the peace pro-
Adams has been in the United
States three times since Clinton over-
ruled most of his foreign policy ad-
visers and granted him a visa in 1994.
But this visit takes on added value
with the approval to raise funds here
for what the White House insists will
be peaceful purposes in Northern Ire-
land, and with the granting of a White
House visit.
Clinton has invited Adams to the
March 17 reception for Irish Prime
Minister John Bruton that will in-
clude other "political leaders in North-
ern Ireland who are committed to the
peace process," the White House said.

A personal meeting with the Presi-
dent bestows a legitimacy on Adams
and the Sinn Fein party considered
unthinkable a few years ago.
Cop in Simpson trial
denies racism charges
LOS ANGELES - With his repu- A
tation and the murder case against
O.J. Simpson on the line, Los Ange-
les Police Detective Mark Fuhrman
took the witness stand yesterday to
describe his actions during the inves-
tigation, to fend off allegations that
he is a racist who may have planted
evidence and to deny ever having met
a witness who accuses him of making
racially inflammatory comments.
Fuhrman told the jury he was "ner-
vous, reluctant" about testifying in a
case that has thrust him into the spot-
light and made him one of the trial's
most potentially important witnesses.
"Throughout ... it seems that I've
seen a lot of the evidence ignored and
a lot of personal issues come to the
forefront," Fuhrman said in response
to Deputy District Attorney Marcia
Clark's first question to him.
