TRUCKEE — Authorities have shut a 95-mile stretch Interstate 80 amid another snow storm hitting the Sierra Nevada.

The CHP shut Interstate 80 from Colfax to the Nevada state line due to multiple spinouts.

Forecasters issued a winter storm warning of whiteout conditions until Sunday evening due to heavy snow and strong winds throughout the mountain region.

The National Weather Service predicted 12 to 24 inches of snow dropping in the greater Lake Tahoe area, with winds in the mountain ridges gusting up to 110 mph.

A snow storm last weekend trapped more than 120 people for five days in a resort in the southern Sierra. In Yosemite National Park, as many as 50 housing structures were damaged by trees toppled during a snowstorm earlier this week.
