PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say they have discovered a body in a Southern California area that was swept by floodwaters from a fierce storm.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports that the man’s body was found on Friday near a crossroads in the rural community of Sage, southeast of Los Angeles.

Three cars were washed off a road in the area Thursday. Two vehicles were found, and rescuers began hunting for the third one.

They didn’t find it. But the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department says the body was found about 1 ½ miles from where the other two vehicles were discovered.

At least two other deaths are reported from the storm that pounded the state Thursday.
