It's Monday morning, and we're still getting a faint drizzle, though this is obviously a big improvement over the deluge that we got over the past few days. While the storm lingered over the weekend, its was Friday that saw the most torrential of its downpours.

Sadly, five fatalities were reported during the storm, reports ABC News. The deaths stemmed from causes that included traffic collisions and downed power lines. One person in Victorville was found dead in a submerged vehicle.
