Flash Floods In Southern California
Posted by Ivetta Babadjanian on Aug 30, 2012 - 6:37:53 PM

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA—Lightning, rain, and hail struck Southern California the afternoon of Thursday, August 30, causing fires and flooding streets from the Antelope Valley to Moreno Valley.

Firefighters were sent to various locations throughout the Los Angeles County. Several brush fires were ignited by lightning, one of which occurred on Cadbury Road and Scenic Drive. The fires were very close to many homes and destroyed two vehicles. The firefighters were able to extinguish the half acre fire in under an hour.

Heavy rain poured in foothill areas of the San Gabriel Valley and in the Moreno Valley where many cars were stuck in the flash floods and overran a roadway.

The California Highway Patrol closed the westbound 60 Freeway near Gilman Spring Road and in Moreno Valley, the intersection of Cactus and Hazeltine were closed due to flooding.

Flash Flood warnings have been issued for the L.A. County until 7 p.m. and north-central San Bernardino County until 6:30 p.m. A flash flood watch is still in effect until 8 p.m. in San Bernardino where flood waters continued to damage roads.

In Moreno Valley, approximately 20 Riverside County firefighters tried to rescue people stuck in a car with their windows rolled down to avoid the excess water at the intersection of Oliver Street and Cactus Avenue.

The flash flood in Moreno Valley sent mud into homes near Oliver Street and Cactus Avenue where many swimming pools were filled with muddy water and parked cars were pushed by the constant mud flow.

Hurricane Ileana near Cabo in Baja, California is expected to bring high surf with sets reaching 10 feet to Ventura, L.A. and Orange County coasts. The National Weather Service has announced a beach hazard statement from August 30 until September 2 at 5 p.m. for Northern Monterey Bay, Southern Monterey Bay, and Big Sur Coast.
