Californians are cleaning up Saturday from a major storm that soaked the drought-stricken state before moving east to drop rain on Arizona.

Perhaps the biggest job was in Camarillo, about 50 miles northwest of Los Angeles, where a mudslide made 13 homes uninhabitable Friday. The debris flowed down a hillside burned by wildfire last year.

A rare tornado that briefly touched down in South Los Angeles triggered cleanup efforts.

In Northern California, residents of two trailer parks in Redwood City were bailing floodwaters, while Sonoma County residents were relieved the Russian River didn't overflow its banks.

More rain is forecast in California starting Sunday in the north and Monday in the south, though the weather isn't expected to equal the strength of the storm swirling farther east Saturday.
