California dries off after fierce spring storm

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Californians will have a chance to dry off today, following a fierce weekend storm that lingered into the workweek with flows of mud and debris.
Bonnie Bartling of the National Weather Service says "the storm is pretty much over with."
The weekend weather caused problems for many at Yosemite National Park. More than 30 hikers were stranded as well as drivers along a major freeway. Roads leading into the park were closed.
Another group of some 100 young people was stuck at a snowed-in mountain campground in the park until crews could clear the roads. The storm dropped some 3.5 feet of snow at Yosemite.
And farther south, four people were rescued from the roof of an SUV in Thousand Oaks when they tried to go through a rain-swollen flood-control channel.
Forecasters say another storm is expected for Wednesday, but it'll be a far weaker system.
