Rain will cost L.A. County $20 million

Officials say last week's series of rainstorms caused $20 million in damage and cleanup costs.

Los Angeles County officials made the estimate at today's Board of Supervisors meeting. The cost includes maintaining catch basins and dealing with washed-out roads.

The storms dropped more than 6 inches of rain in some parts of the region.

A much lighter storm moved into Southern California this afternoon, causing mostly drizzle.  Light showers are expected to continue overnight, with cloudy skies and a 20% chance of rain Wednesday.
