While moderate showers deposited more than half an inch of rain on Los Angeles Tuesday, San Diego County was pelted by the same storm--including an incredible 4 inches at Imperial Beach, twice as much as anywhere else in the county. Sheriff's deputies in Imperial Beach reported that roads were so badly flooded that some residents used rowboats to get around.

Another powerful storm hammered Southern California with heavy rain Monday, triggering mudslides and floods that battered buildings, blocked highways, swallowed automobiles and swept a farm worker to his death in a rain-swollen creek in Ventura County. At the Mexican border, the bodies of three earlier flood victims were recovered, raising to at least eight the number who have drowned there this winter in a fast-moving river channel while trying to cross into the United States.

A powerful storm hammered Orange County on Monday, collapsing the roof of a furniture store, causing scores of traffic accidents and whipping up winds that damaged cars and homes in Brea and Placentia. Houses in Anaheim Hills, Laguna Beach and San Clemente continued to sit precariously on unstable ground, but miraculously, two days of rain had little immediate effect on them. "Looks like we got through this pretty good," Anaheim City Manager James D. Ruth said.

A storm with rain and gale-force winds descended on San Diego County Thursday, knocking trees into power poles, tearing boats from their moorings and pushing tides to record heights. The National Weather Service issued an advisory warning of heavy surf through the weekend, with a chance of flooding along the beaches. Breakers, propelled in part by the highest tides seen in San Diego in more than 50 years, will be up to 8 feet.

John Sterner and Will Zuckerman did not care about the rain splashing down on Sterner's shiny black 1966 Volvo sedan parked in a lot overlooking a premier surfing spot at Topanga State Beach on Sunday afternoon. "Even in a wet suit, you're going to get wet anyhow," said Sterner, 29, a Malibu plumber, as the first of what is expected to be almost a week of rain hit the Los Angeles area. "Even if it was bright and sunny we'd be doing the same thing we're doing now."

Hurricane Boris is a shadow of its former self, but the weakening storm is expected to drop rain throughout San Diego County today, according to the National Weather Service. "There's a lot to complain about this weekend--the humidity, the warm temperatures and now the rain," said forecaster Wilbur Shigehara. Judging from satellite weather pictures, coastal and inland areas could receive up to a quarter of an inch beginning this afternoon and into Sunday morning, Shigehara said.

Northern storms are expected to bring more showers and cooler temperatures this morning, though skies should clear this afternoon, the National Weather Service said Monday. The cold could turn rain to snow at Julian today and threatens to bring nighttime frost to some areas of the county later in the week, forecaster Wilbur Shigehara said. "I've already alerted the growers that if we get any clearing we might have very cold temperatures and frost conditions the latter part of this week.

The winter weather that drenched parts of Southern California this week has spurred San Diego officials to step up warnings of possible heavy rain, high surf and flooding today. Mayor Maureen O'Connor is urging coastal residents to sandbag their homes and secure their windows with plywood. Motorists are advised to stay off the roads during periods of heavy rain and to pay close attention to posted signs.
