Southwestern Storm

AccuWeather has details here. The Los Angeles Times is reporting,

Laguna Beach police reported rockslides in canyon areas and urged residents to remain in their homes for now and avoid downtown, portions of which were under several feet of water.
Numerous Orange County roads were partially or fully closed, including Ortega Highway, the toll road California 241 and Pacific Coast Highway in Newport Beach.
Things will worsen the rest of the day as heavy rain spreads from Southern California to Utah. The rain will let up late tonight and things should be dry through Christmas. Unfortunately, more rain is likely the first of next week.

UPDATE 3:35pm Wednesday, from Los Angeles Times:
More than 15 inches of rain have dropped over the Station fire burn area in the San Gabriel Mountains, with one area --Tanbark Flats above La Verne -- recording 21 inches of rain in the last seven days.
