MAMMOTH LAKES, Calif. - An avalanche struck a northern California ski resort Monday and a search was under way to determine if anyone was trapped.

Three minor injuries were reported after the avalanche at about 2 p.m. at Mammoth Mountain, 190 miles east of San Francisco, said Fire Chief Brent Harper.

More than 200 people were searching an area of a ski run at the resort, which has had record snowfall this season. The Eastern Sierra Avalanche Center had posted a warning of "considerable" danger on Monday.

"I just hope there's no one under there," said Mammoth Lakes Mayor Rick Wood said Monday. "We don't need another terrible thing."
