Mudslides and floods hit southern California

13 December 2014 Last updated at 08:58 GMT

Heavy rains in southern California have triggered mudslides and flooding, killing one person and forcing the evacuation of hundreds of homes.

The body was found in a drainage canal in a southern suburb of Los Angeles.

Another hard-hit area was the town of Camarillo Springs, 50 miles (80km) north-west of Los Angeles, where a mudslide left 18 homes uninhabitable.
