Batten down the hatches: Most powerful storm to hit southern California in years barrels in bringing up to 10 inches of rain and 70mph winds

Southern California is currently being battered by a storm that experts say could be the biggest in six years, bringing heavy rains, gusting winds and the potential for flash floods and mudslides.

The entire Southland of California is on flood watch, including Death Valley National Park - considered to be the driest place in America.

'This will likely go down in the record books as one of the wettest February days ever,' Crystal Egger, NBC's weather forecaster, said.

For now, the storm will mostly steer clear of Northern California, where the bulging Oroville Dam threatened to give way to erosion last week.

But another system could bring more water to the straining dam early next week.

IDS' blistering assault on Tony Blair after former PM demands uprising against Brexit

Mr Duncan Smith, who was Mr Blair's direct rival during his time as Tory leader, was savage as he criticised the ex-PM for his globe-trotting consultancy work.

He told Sky News: "The idea we are going to have Tony Blair coming in, late in the day lecturing, after advising quasi-dictators around the world what to do.

"He seems to have forgotten what democracy is about.

“Democracy is about asking people a question and then acting on it. That’s what we did and that’s what we are doing at the moment. The government and Theresa May is doing exactly the right thing.

“The idea that you just keep on asking the British people until they give you the right answer to the question, which is his case, and some of his political elite friends is no we don’t want to leave the European Union is arrogant really.”

Alien life boost: Dwarf planet Ceres has building blocks for life

Organic material has been discovered on Ceres – the dwarf planet between Mars and Jupiter – boosting the hopes of finding life outside of Earth.

The materials were discovered by Nasa’s Dawn spacecraft and while they cannot be identified exactly, the researchers say the materials resemble tar-like materials such as kerite or asphaltite.

Dawn's lead scientist Christopher Russell said: “The discovery indicates that the starting material in the solar system contained the essential elements, or the building blocks, for life.

"Ceres may have been able to take this process only so far. Perhaps to move further along the path took a larger body with more complex structure and dynamics (like Earth).”

WARNING: Parents told to DESTROY talking doll because it could be used by PAEDOPHILES

PARENTS in Germany have been told to destroy a 'Big Brother' child's doll because it can be used for spying.

Officials fear the doll called 'My Friend Cayla' - which is linked to the Internet - can be easily hijacked by hackers or paedophiles.

Germany’s Federal Network Agency, the regulatory office for electricity, gas, telecommunications, post and railway markets, now tells parents: "Destroy it immediately."
