The Los Angeles Fire Department is reporting street flooding in San Pedro and other southernmost areas of the city. They "are experiencing severe stormwater impact at this time," the department tweeted. "Motorists are advised to avoid routine travel in the area."

[Update: "In some locations 'feet of water' impacting homes/businesses," a subsequent tweet noted.]
