The first measurable rain since October brought needed moisture to Southern California's parched chaparral and forest lands Monday, and meteorologists said a bigger storm is expected later in the week. The forecasters said the approaching storm, due Wednesday night, is expected to last through Friday, bringing gale-force winds and heavy surf that could flood low-lying coastal areas, especially in Orange and San Diego counties.

A massive storm, expected to bring heavy rain for the rest of the week, halted repair work Monday on a broken sewage pipe, which was still gushing more than 180 million gallons a day of partly treated sewage into the ocean. The storm also forced the indefinite closure of a pump station that treats 12 million gallons of Tijuana's raw sewage each day. That sewage overflow mixed with floodwaters to add another 100 million gallons a day or more to the contaminated offshore waters.

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.

Damage estimates topped $68 million and continued to climb Tuesday as property owners and public officials began the arduous task of cleaning up after the winter storm that ravaged a 250-mile stretch of the coast from Santa Barbara south to the Mexican city of Ensenada. Wind-driven surf threatened oceanfront structures again Tuesday as tides peaked above 7 feet at 8:38 a.m.

A major winter storm battered Southern California Sunday, killing three in an avalanche that buried their car in the Angeles National Forest, and four more in a plane that crashed into a mountain in Newhall during a driving rainstorm. The storm pelted Los Angeles with more than an inch of rain, causing road closures, highway flooding, setting off mud slides and triggering high surf that tore large amounts of sand from local beaches.

Low clouds may briefly block early-morning sunshine, but otherwise blue skies are expected for the weekend while storms bypass San Diego County and a warming trend begins. Clear skies are welcome after 10 days of rain so far this month--four more than normal for February. The rainfall total for the month is well above the norm, with 2.59 inches recorded at Lindbergh Field in a month that usually receives 1.43 inches of rain.

History joined the football teams from Brigham Young and Texas A&M aboard the aircraft carrier USS Independence at a luncheon/tour Thursday, and it wasn't just Holiday Bowl lore. The carrier returned from the Persian Gulf about a week ago, and team officials and players were a bit awed.
