Two key highway mountain passes into the Los Angeles area were cut off by blinding snow, causing backups as long as 30 miles.

Motorists found themselves stuck after Interstate 5 was closed for a second day over the 4,160-foot-high Tejon Pass, about 70 miles north of Los Angeles.

The California Highway Patrol closed the 30-mile stretch of I-5 shortly after 12:30 p.m. Sunday because of blowing snow.
