Southern California thunderstorms bring flash-flood warnings

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Thunderstorms are again dumping heavy rain in some mountain and desert areas of Southern California.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning from late morning through midafternoon Thursday for San Bernardino and Riverside counties.

Forecasters say rainfall rates could reach up to three-quarters of an inch (190 centimeters) an hour.

Deluges also hit the area Wednesday due to monsoonal flow.

Along the Southern California coast, meanwhile, the weather service has issued advisories for minor coastal flooding during high tides through Saturday.
