OUNT BALDY, Calif. (AP) -- They came with shovels, hands and heart to dig out their neighbors in the aftermath of Southern California flooding.<br />
Dozens of muddy volunteers attacked tons of muck left after flash floods sent dirt, rock and mud roaring down on the tiny mountain towns of Mount Baldy and Forest Falls east of Los Angeles - in some cases burying homes up to their roofs.<br />
The floods stranded thousands of people, washed away and inundated cars and damaged about 30 homes, including a dozen that were uninhabitable in Mount Baldy and Forest Falls.<br />
Roads to both places were ruled by bulldozers and other heavy equipment working under sunny skies Monday to clear mud and rocky debris.<br />
Brief but fierce storms dumped nearly 5 inches of rain on Mount Baldy and as much as 3 1/2 inches on Forest Falls some 50 miles away, the National Weather Service said.<br />
The week's forecast called for sunny skies in Southern California but showers and thunderstorms were possible Tuesday in Nevada and New Mexico.
A blustery winter storm dumped snow and ice across the West on Wednesday, making driving treacherous in the mountains from California to the Rockies and forcing residents and party-goers in some usually sun-soaked cities to bundle up for a frosty New Year's.
