Man who died during California storms identified

MOUNT BALDY, Calif. (AP) — The person found dead in a car that was swept into a flooded creek after thunderstorms caused mountain mudslides in Southern California has been identified as a 48-year-old Los Angeles County man. Coroner's Lt. Fred Corral says Joo Hwan Lee of El Segundo died Sunday when his car overturned during flash floods near Mount Baldy. To the east, about 2,500 people remain stranded early Monday following mudslides elsewhere in San Bernardino County. Fire spokesman Ryan Beckers tells KABC-TV that mud, rocks and debris several feet deep are blocking roads in the communities of Oak Glen and Forest Falls, and it could be several hours before crews cleared the way through. He says all residents in the two towns are accounted for and no injuries are reported.
