Southern California was getting a steady drenching early Sunday, as the first wave of a potentially damaging storm washes across the region.
Most spots around Los Angeles have gotten about 2 inches of rain so far, but no major floods or slides have been reported.
Curt Kaplan of the National Weather Service says that Los Angeles International Airport and Hawthorne each had received nearly 2 inches, downtown Los Angeles 1.3 inches, Santa Monica airport 2.3 inches and Malibu nearly 3 inches.
Officials were preparing for possible mudslides in Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties and were posting mudflow warnings.
Forecasters say the storms could be the largest system the region has seen in the last decade.
