Pacific storm that unleashed coastal flooding pushes across Southern California into Arizona

Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Pacific storm that pounded coastal areas northwest of Los Angeles has pushed through San Diego to the deserts on its way into Arizona. After slowly moving down the California coast during the week, the brunt of the storm reached San Diego just before midnight Thursday. The National Weather Services says a squall with powerful gusts dumped more than a half-inch of rain at Point Loma in 30 to 40 minutes. A large swath of Southern California will remain under a flood watch through the day before drying out for the holiday weekend. Rain, meanwhile, has arrived in southwest Arizona. Forecasters there say the center of the low-pressure system will move from southwest of San Diego to near Yuma by evening.
