Pouring rain prompts flooding across San Diego

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A winter storm pounded San Diego County Monday and the rain was expected to fall through the evening.

Local roadways and highways were slippery and the heavy rain prompted a flash-flood watch for local coastal, inland-valley and mountain areas below 5,000 feet - it was slated to be in effect through Monday evening.

The California Highway Patrol warned drivers to be cautious and practice defensive driving.

People who live along the coast were keeping an eye out for any potential flooding issues.

But Monday evening the flooding was really bad in at least one part of Sorrento Valley.
CBS News 8's Shannon Handy reported from the area with the latest details.

The wet conditions also resulted in emergency crews responding to several crashes throughout the day.
