LOS ANGELES (AP) - A powerful storm in California that swelled rivers, flooded streets and triggered water rescues throughout the state is on its last gasp.

The three-day storm spared communities a repeat of the deadly debris flows following a deluge earlier this year.

But it did dump record rainfall in some parts and unleashed flooding that led to dramatic rescues from Los Angeles in Southern California all the way to Folsom, some 400 miles (645 kilometers) to the north.

In San Luis Obispo County in central California, rescuers reported pulling 10 people from the Salinas River on Thursday.

All remaining flood warnings and watches were set to expire overnight Friday.
