AZUSA, Calif. (AP) - Southern California has so far been spared major damage from a powerful Pacific storm, but forecasters warn that intense rain will occur even as it begins to move east.

A burst of heavy showers before dawn Saturday impacted wildfire-scarred mountainsides above foothill suburbs east of Los Angeles, causing another round of mud and debris flows in the city of Glendora.

The National Weather Service says the center of the system located off the coast will move across Southern California to exit the region, but bands of intense rain will still occur.

The system has been so volatile that the weather service issued a 3:30 a.m. tornado warning for east-central Los Angeles County when radar showed the rotation signature of a tornado and severe thunderstorms.
