Despite the length of the storm that swept through the Sacramento region, a county emergency operations official said Sunday that there were no reports of significant flooding or injuries.

"There has been some localized flooding in the south part of the county near Wilton and some reports of downed trees," said Steve Cantelme. "But there's nothing that's been reported of significance."

The rain proved a hindrance at best for the thousands of participants in the California International Marathon, but did little to dampen the enthusiasm of crowds that lined Fair Oaks Boulevard to cheer them on.

Some gawkers watched under umbrellas while others gamely erected pop-up tents or sat in parking lots under the open hatches of their SUVs and watched the colorful parade of runners.
