At least 5 people died after a powerful storm pummeled Southern California on Friday night, flooding numerous roadways in Los Angeles and San Diego.
Rescuers on Saturday in the community of Thousand Oaks found the body of a young man in his 20s who had been swept away by swift-moving waters, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office said.
Earlier, in the Sherman Oaks neighborhood of Los Angeles, a falling tree brought down power lines and hit a car on Friday night. A 55-year-old man was electrocuted and pronounced dead at a hospital, police and fire officials said.
Two others died in separate car accidents on Interstate 15 in San Diego amid heavy rain. And a motorist was found dead in a fully submerged vehicle in Victorville in San Bernardino County, officials said.
In the Studio City neighborhood of Los Angeles, two cars plunged into a massive sinkhole. At least one person was trapped when the first vehicle fell into the hole until rescue crews were able to pull the woman out of the car. She was transported to the hospital for injuries and her condition is unknown, according to ABC owned-and-operated television station KABC.
Minutes later, the sinkhole swallowed a second vehicle, which was unoccupied at the time, KABC reported.
The massive Pacific storm swept into Southern California on Friday morning, bringing torrential rain and gusting winds to the region while also spreading precipitation north into the San Joaquin Valley and up to San Francisco.
Flash flood watches were in effect for Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties from Friday morning through Saturday morning. Forecasters said the weather system could be the strongest to pelt the region in years, if not decades.
“The storm looks to be the strongest storm to hit southwest California this season,” the National Weather Service office for the Los Angeles region wrote. “It is likely the strongest within the last six years and possibly even as far back as December 2004 or January 1995.”
