MORENO VALLEY ( — Severe thunderstorms, rolling through the Inland Empire, have caused a torrential downpour, leading to flash floods following another wild weather day in Southern California.

A flash flood warning was issued in the San Bernardino area on Sunday, and was extended through 6:30 p.m.

Flash floods have also hit areas of Riverside County, which is also under a warning as gusty thunderstorms knocked down trees and power lines.

Areas of northern Los Angeles County, including high desert areas such as Lancaster, were expecting to receive rain Sunday night from the same systems that hit the Inland Empire earlier in the day.

Flooded streets and property damage were reported in Moreno Valley as the result of flash floods. A public-assist became necessary around 4 p.m. Water had come rushing down the hills and poured into backyards.

Firefighters were on hand trying to clean up the mess.
