A powerful storm whipped through Southern California Saturday, dumping several inches of rain in some areas. Three traffic deaths in Ventura County were blamed on the storm, and a 10-year-old girl was critically injured when she was struck by a falling light pole in Palmdale. The storm, which hit the region Saturday morning and was expected to linger through early Sunday, wreaked havoc on Thanksgiving weekend traffic. Minor flooding and slick roads resulted in hundreds of traffic collisions.

Up Lakewood Mountain Road, others paused at a convenience store to sign an American flag that will be presented to the family. "God bless you for your sacrifice.

Congratulations to Times reporter Michael Krikorian for his outstanding article, "Coming Face to Face With Sudden Death Tragedy on the Streets of L.A." (Jan. 27). The sudden deaths of Judith Lopez and her 8-year-old daughter, Beatrice, and the major injuries suffered by 6-year-old daughter Jamie at Parthenia and Tampa, were truly tragic. Witnesses like Krikorian and Sylvia Vasquez usually arrive before our police officers and firefighters, and we thank them for their efforts to help the victims.

Airport security officers detained the man, a Southwest airlines passenger bound for San Jose whose name was not released, after screening his computer with an X-ray machine.

Re " 'Freeze! Put your hands up!' Oh sorry," Opinion, Sept. 9 I was attracted to the Op-Ed; it was a catchy title to be sure. Michael Krikorian's experience was unfortunate, although not uncommon. As a Los Angeles police officer for 35 years, I saw countless incidents in which the officers were provided inaccurate information by a caring, concerned and obviously frightened citizen. Krikorian had a chance to gain insight from this and pass it along to the citizens of Los Angeles.
