CORONA, California (KABC) — A strong storm system on Thursday brought heavy rain and high winds to southern California, including the Inland Empire, where a resident caught winds throwing a trampoline.
David Bills, a viewer in Corona, shared video of the winds swirling the trampoline and plants across his garden.
The National Weather Service warned residents that gusty winds could blow away unsecured objects, topple trees or destroy power lines.
In San Bernardino, Waterman Avenue was several inches under water Thursday as heavy rain poured through the area in the morning, causing street flooding. The storm is expected to result in some runoff, resulting in wider river courses.
Riverside and San Bernardino counties are monitoring and deploying equipment in areas to help residents.
The main front of the “bombing cyclone” moved into the area overnight, but forecasters said the storm marched through the region much faster than expected, which “greatly reduced the amount of precipitation in the region,” according to the National Weather Service.
“Generally, 1 to 3 inches of rain has fallen,” NWS forecasters said Thursday morning.
However, the showers were expected to continue throughout the day, with forecasters saying thunderstorms will be a possibility in some areas, accompanied by scattered downpours.
