On Thursday San Bernardino got hit by one heck of a monsoon. It was the first drop of rain we had in four months. It didn't just rain - it pounded us.
Emergency and city officials began the long process Friday morning, Aug. 30, to dry out and clean-up the remnants of a freak rain storm.
And the Inland region could get hit again with storms moving in Friday afternoon.
A flash flood watch is in effect from 11 a.m. Friday until 11 p.m. as more thunderstorms are expected to sweep through the area.
After heating up all morning - starting at 80 degrees at 6 a.m. - Humidity topping 80 percent and more moisture could cause flash flooding through Friday afternoon.
Meteorologists warn that the storms could cause mudslides in mountains and hillsides, particularly recent in wildfire burn areas.
The 14th Street underpass in Riverside remained underwater as police and firefighters rescued a construction worker whose car became trapped by flood waters early Friday morning
The Riverside downtown fire station suffered significant water damage to the first and second floors. The ceiling collapsed as the a several inches of rain drained through the roof.
San Bernardino suffered flooding as parts of Foothill Blvd. (Route 66) were completely underwater. Some motorists found themselves stranded in their vehicles until rescued by San Bernardino County Sheriffs.
We have not had any additional rain except for a few light sprinkles.
We had flooding in the mobile home park where I work. Guess who had to clean it up? You guessed it - me. That was fun - NOT. Well at least I made some extra money today. Who doesn't need that these days, but I sure am exhausted.
