Southern California rain continues into Wednesday amid flooding, mudslides

Record-setting rainfall on Tuesday left its mark on the Southland, with flooded streets and mudslides impacting multiple areas amid the continuing precipitation Wednesday morning.

Multiple area broke their rainfall records for March 14, including Oxnard, which broke a 93-year-old record of 1.46 inches with 2.25 inches of rain.

Nearby Camarillo, which has experienced flooding and sinkholes amid the recent storms, also received more than 2 inches of rain.

Los Angeles International Airport also shattered its daily rainfall record of 0.43 inches with 1.97 inches of rain, smashing a record that’s stood for more than 40 years.

With all of the precipitation, residents are advised to remain vigilant and steer clear of flooded streets, swollen streams and creeks, and possible debris flows, especially near and below recent burn scars.

In Pomona, the 71 Freeway closed at about 4:15 a.m. and will remain closed until further notice due to flooding and the resulting potholes, according to the California Highway Patrol. The closure begins at Holt Avenue, but motorists can get back on the freeway at Holt and continue northbound, officials said.

While it’s difficult to know which vehicles were disabled by the potholes and which motorists pulled over to help, at one point, about 50 vehicles were pulled over, the CHP added.

High seas are expected to remain through Wednesday night, with surf of 8 to 12 feet expected off the Central Coast and 5 to 8 feet elsewhere.
