CALIFORNIA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A major clean-up is underway in southern California following Sunday's severe weather.

Torrential rains triggered flash flooding and mudslides that killed one person and left many others stranded.

Authorities say more than 30 homes have been damaged.

Dozens of volunteers are shoveling mud out of homes, digging out cars and removing large rocks by hand.

Hundreds of campers trapped in forest hills have since been rescued.
