Thunderstorms, Hail, Flooding Hammer Areas Of Southland

View Comments

MORENO VALLEY (AP) — Moreno Valley was ankle-deep in water and parts of Pasadena were stunned by midsummer showers as a series of thunderstorm cells pass over the region.

SKY2 showed Moreno Valley from overhead after flash floods and mudslides stranded at least a half-dozen drivers Thursday afternoon. Water and mud ran up to the front doors of homes in a low-lying cul-de-sac in the Riverside County community.

Rains also came briefly to foothill communities north of Los Angeles, including Interstate 210 in Pasadena, where a big-rig crash on slick roads forced the temporary shutdown of the freeway’s westbound side.

Towering thunderheads formed over the mountains of Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside and San Diego counties, bringing lightning strikes and the possibility of hail.
