LA MESA, Calif. — As a storm continues to sweep through the county, some residents and visitors were left digging their cars out of the mud on Thanksgiving day as flooding soaked their property.
The RV Resort on Alvarado Road in La Mesa flooded around 11:30 a.m. Thursday, according to viewer Derek Isakson who took videos of the event. He said there was a Flash Flood Watch during that time.
The rainfall — expected to pelt the county into Friday evening– led the National Weather Service to issue flood, wind and beach hazard warnings, with more than an inch reported in some areas of the county.
Drivers who encounter flooded roadways were advised to find an alternate route and not to drive through the water.
Reports of flooding and other storm-related hazards came in from across the county Thursday morning and into the afternoon.
The fire department also warned of flooding on a number of roadways, including the 2500 to 2700 block of Hollister Street, the 2100 block of Monument Road, the 8300 block of Monument Road, Nobel Drive over Interstate 5, the 4200 block of Balboa Avenue, the 3300 block of Carmel Mountain Road and the 6000 block of Carroll Road.
