Photo: 710 Freeway Flooded in Long Beach
Heavy rains mixed with an electrical problem at Caltrans pump houses caused flooding in at least one area of the 710 freeway at Willow Street today. Crews are currently working to restore electricity to relieve the flooding, but Caltrans officials cannot sat when all lanes will be opened.
All northbound lanes are currently clear, but only one southbound lane is open. Water appears to be receding, albeit slowly.
