Big storm leaves behind flooded streets, major mess

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The sun returned to San Diego Thursday, but the cleanup from this week's storm is far from over.

After more than two days of rain, the storm left its mark across the county, from flooded roads to cars underwater, and even a river rescue.

The California Highway Patrol reported the following flooded roadways: state Route 163 south of Interstate 5, south of Balboa Avenue and south of Interstate 8; state Route 94 west of Euclid Avenue and east of Kenwood Drive; Interstate 805 at 47th Street, at state Route 54 and north of Imperial Avenue; state Route 54 at Highland Avenue; Interstate 5 north of Washington Street; and state Route 79 at Interstate 15.

The rain also flooded several city streets early Thursday, briefly trapping some motorists who attempted to drive through, police said.

Although several dozen accidents were reported around the county, most involved no injuries or only minor injuries.
