Moisture and warm energy from Hurricane Norbert popped up this afternoon as thunderstorms and flash floods struck Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.

Although Norbert hit Baja California in Mexico, it was still strong enough to cause a storm surge that hit SoCal this weekend and took the life of one swimmer. Flooding was severe enough to close the 74 freeway today, according to ABC 7. The National Weather Service has since lifted the flash flood warning in the region, though it's clear it'll take a while to dry out.

This poor kid lost all of his backyard toys in a flash flood :(
