The powerful storms pelting most of California since Friday just keep coming.

Mountain areas are getting heavy rain, snow and high winds, prompting evacuations and leaving thousands without power.

More than 12 inches of rain have fallen in parts of the Santa Monica Mountains in the south and 13 feet of snow has accumulated at Mammoth Mountain ski resort.

Downtown Los Angeles had received 5 1/4 inches of rain since Friday morning, more than a third of the average annual precipitation.

In the Wrightwood area, about 15 people were evacuated last night after the Sheep Creek Wash overflowed and threatened homes.

Also in San Bernardino County, a woman was rescued from her pickup truck last night after being swept away in a rain-swollen creek in the San Bernardino National Forest.
