LOS ANGELES (AP) - The National Weather Service is reporting impressive rainfall totals in Southern California after a weekend of downpours fueled by remnants of former Hurricane Dolores off Baja California.

Ramona in San Diego County received 4.1 inches of rain in the 48 hours ending at 7 p.m. Sunday, while Pinyon Pines in Riverside County got 3.28 inches. Running Springs and Lake Arrowhead in the San Bernardino Mountains had more than 2½ inches, while Kearny Mesa in San Diego received 2.39 inches.

Countless lightning strikes and numerous flash floods were reported during the weekend. A bridge washout collapsed Interstate 10 about 50 miles west of the Colorado River.

Flash-flood watches remain in effect for much of the Mojave Desert and are now extending hundreds of miles up the spine of the Sierra Nevada.
