Storm drenches Calif., rain to continue today
LOS ANGELES -- Heavy rain has drenched California from the mountains to the ocean, triggering scores of traffic accidents and a few minor mudslides in the Los Angeles area.
The storm, which arrived Saturday, was expected to continue through today.
Rainfall totals Sunday ranged from 2 to 4 inches in flatland areas to as much as 7 inches in some mountain passes.
Stuart Seto of the National Weather Service says 3 more inches could fall before the storm departs Monday night.
A flash-flood watch is in effect in some areas, particularly those burned in recent years by brush fires.
Seto says some minor mudslides have occurred in mountain passes and burn areas.
