LOS ANGELES (AP) -- 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 Monday in Southern California.

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.
