Thousands without power as So. Cal storm retreats

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- More than 2,000 people remain without power around Southern California after a storm that knocked down power lines, snarled roads and left a blanket of snow in the mountains.

The storm that began Sunday is tapering off early Monday morning.

At its peak, the storm left some 21,000 people without power. But Southern California Edison reports only a few thousand are still without electricity Monday morning.

About 4,300 customers in the San Diego area lost power shortly before 1 a.m. but electricity has now been restored.

The storm dumped nearly an inch of rain in downtown Los Angeles and two to three inches in coastal Malibu and the Santa Monica Mountains.

The mountains got new snow and could see another inch or two Monday morning as the storm moves off.
