Worries of mudslides after more rain than typical for a November in Orange County prompted early morning mandatory evacuations in some Yorba Linda neighborhoods. An estimated 1,500 people were told to evacuate in Box Canyon, Brush Canyon and the neighborhoods near North Fairmont and San Antonio.

So far, no mudslides have been reported, but officials do say this is the most powerful storm to hit Orange County in two years. 1.9 inches of rain fell by 5 a.m.
