LOS ANGELES (AP) - Parts of Southern California already plagued with mudslides and flooding could get worse this week.
Forecasters say more rain is expected to pound the region, which already has seen some seven inches of rain this past weekend. And some isolated areas could get a total of 20 inches of rain by Wednesday.
Forecasters say the heavy weather could continue on-and-off into Christmas Day.
The rains triggered scores of accidents, a few minor mudslides and downed trees.
A flash-flood warning is in effect for parts of Southern California, particularly mountain areas burned in recent years by wildfires.
