In SoCal, Heavy Rain Creates Dangerous Road Conditions

Read Time:1 Minute, 26 Second

Across Southern California today, a spring storm system caused chaos that resulted in dangerous driving conditions and spectacular rescues in the pouring rain.

Two homeless people in the Inland Empire were rescued in a terrifying water rescue in Bloomington as the water level rose quickly and they got stuck in a drainage tunnel. The San Bernardino County Fire Department’s rescue teams used a boat to safely remove the stranded people from the dangerous circumstance.

Meanwhile, early in the morning, there was a terrifying collision on the 101 Freeway in Van Nuys. A car spun out due to heavy rain, slicing across the road with great care. Thankfully, Eyewitness News was able to record this encounter on camera without any reported injuries.

A automobile that had been sent careening down a ravine further south in Fullerton lost control and ended up buried in water. The driver escaped unharmed from the terrifying scene, but it was too dangerous to retrieve the car given the continuing storm.

The difficulties didn’t stop with the sodden roads; drivers driving into Big Bear were faced with hazardous circumstances. Heavy snowfall at Running Springs left a number of cars, including a semi-truck, trapped, seriously disrupting traffic and posing difficulties for snowplow teams.

Strong gusts, hail, and significant rainfall might be brought on by thunderstorms, according to forecasters, who are predicting ongoing effects throughout the weekend. Travelers should also be aware of the risks posed by strong winds and possible snowfall, especially in hilly areas.

As the spring storm system continues to affect the area, residents are urged to use caution and stay alert. Pay attention to any cautions or advisories that the local authorities may issue, and stay alert for more information.
