Hundreds of people fled their homes and hundreds of roadways were closed by high water and mudslides as unrelenting rain brought Oregon's worst flooding in more than 30 years. Most of the major east-west routes in Washington state also were shut by flooding. The coastal town of Tillamook, Ore., was cut off, and much of its downtown was under 6 to 7 feet of water. Coast Guard and county rescue boats were ferrying people, sometimes catching propellers on roofs of submerged cars.

Ninth-ranked USC's game against No. 23 Oregon today at the Coliseum will be a family affair for Trojans defensive end Clay Matthews and nose tackle Christian Tupou. Matthews' younger brother, Casey, is a sophomore linebacker for the Ducks. "I'm looking forward to it," Clay said. "Last year, on one punt return I went out of my way to hit him. I didn't get a good shot but whatever. "I think during the play he was telling me, 'C'mon, get out of the way!' That was pretty fun."

The forecast is for rain in Oregon. Big deal. A tailgate party in Oregon involves three people: one to bring the food, another to bring the beer and the third to bring the tent. But there's no tent over Autzen Stadium in Eugene, where UCLA and Oregon play today. "I think that rain tends to favor the team that runs the ball best," Oregon Coach Mike Bellotti said. "UCLA's big, experienced offensive line and Skip Hicks should make them the better running team."

Gusting Santa Ana winds blew over big rigs, whipped up dust storms and forced the closure of a stretch of heavily traveled Interstate 15 near Fontana in both directions Thursday. Gusts hit 78 mph at Fremont Canyon in the Santa Ana Mountains between Orange and Riverside counties and 54 mph in Devore near the El Cajon Pass, the National Weather Service reported.

Memo to Georgia: The road, this week, does not lead back to you. It leads to Oregon. Not generally considered the cradle of anything except rain, Oregon is suddenly a cross-legged guru from which all college football eminence flows. No. 6 California plays at No. 11 Oregon in Eugene in a marquee game being televised by ABC and announced by former Oregon quarterback Dan Fouts.

Weather is usually boring in Southern California--haze in the morning, sun in the afternoon, no precipitation and a layer of fog and smog to hide mountains and other land forms. But that all changes in the mid-winter months when we traditionally get rain showers, hail and the kind of crisp, brilliantly clear days that made this area a promised land to weather-weary East Coasters.
