A dayslong storm took a parting shot as it moved out of the drought-stricken state Thursday, dumping more heavy rain that triggered flash floods and stranded more than three dozen people in their cars in Southern California. Five vehicles got stuck shortly after 1 a.m. as several feet of mud and water roared over a rural road near Gilman Hot Springs about 80 miles southeast of Los Angeles, Riverside County fire officials said. A woman in one car was "hanging out of the passenger side of her vehicle screaming for help," California Highway Patrol Sgt. Adrian Horta said.
