An elderly woman died and another was believed drowned when their car plunged into the swollen San Gabriel River in Long Beach on Thursday. Separately, about 135 people were expected to remain stranded for weeks after the same river washed away three bridges above Azusa. The woman, 88, was in a car that drove past a guard shack at the Haynes Power Plant about 5:30 p.m. and drove around the property with a guard in pursuit, authorities said.
