SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Californians are cleaning up and drying off after a series of storms dumped heavy rain and snow throughout the state.

Road crews will be working Friday to clear mud, debris and trees that blocked some roads from Malibu to San Francisco.

In Ventura County, residents are being urged to avoid coming into contact with storm runoff or ocean water for several days after flooding at an RV park sent 4,500 gallons (17,000 liters) of sewage into a river.

The three-day drenching put a dent in California's drought, dumping as much as 10 inches (25 centimeters) of rain in parts of Southern California, and as much as 4 feet (1.2 meters) of snow in the Sierra Nevada.

The weather caused at least six deaths.
