Two missing, dozens rescued after flash floods hit California

Two people are missing in California's Mariposa County after heavy rain caused dangerous flash floods rushing through the region.

Police said the two persons, one male and one female, went missing in two separate incidents after a three-day storm dumped heavy rain, in parts record-breaking.

Authorities said the flooding it unleashed led to dramatic rescues from Los Angeles in Southern California all the way to Folsom, some 645 km (400 miles) to the north.

In a rescue in Folsom, a man stood on his car as rescue crews helped him to safety while In San Luis Obispo County in central California, rescuers reported pulling 10 people from the Salinas River on Thursday.
