CA Threatened with More Flooding

Ad Feedback

So much for the saying, "It never rains in southern California." Residents there are trying to dry out from a deluge of rain and snow over the past few days. And that's causing concern about mudslides.

As the wet weather begins to clear out, the threat of more flooding and mudslides are staying behind.

For the last week, southern California has been soaked by heavy rains, thunderstorms, and snowfall.

There's been so much precipitation that Los Angeles' seasonal total has already passed its norm for this time of the year by nearly four inches.

The wet weather has caused several headaches for Californians with flash flooding, several road closures along major highways, power outages, and forcing residents to scramble to keep their homes high and dry.

"It has been raining, it's windy, and it's the second time I have had to board up these windows in the last month-and-a-half," California resident Darren Cobrae said.

Rain even caused a minor delay in last night's game between the L.A. Lakers and the Cleveland Cavaliers with a leak in the roof dripping onto the court.

But the major concern is over hillsides in Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties charred by last year's wildfires.

With no trees or shrubs, officials worry that all that heavy wet mud has nowhere to go but down.
