It was already the second time lifeguards prepared for a water rescue that morning, as another driver got stranded on a flooded street in Pacific Beach about an hour earlier.
A storm hovering over Southern California brought heavy rain and thunderstorms to the county overnight Monday and was expected to last through the evening.
