California Storm Hits South After Drenching North [VIDEO]

A dangerous storm system blamed for two deaths in Oregon, thousands of power outages in Washington, and flooded roadways in the Bay Area that kept many from work and school, pushed into the southern California and caused mudslides and evacuations, officials said.
Avalanches of mud and debris blocked part of the Pacific Coast Highway in Ventura County early Friday, National Weather Service specialist Stuart Seto said.
He said that heavy rain was falling in Ventura County as well as western Los Angeles County, where possible flash flooding was a concern.
The brunt of the storm was expected to move into the Los Angeles area shortly before dawn, Seto added.
