LAist Sports Editor Jimmy Bramlett monitored the rainfall today in San Pedro. "It was pouring like a bitch," he said of the experience, which has been shared across the region this week. Over at 4th and Grand, where major flooding occurred yesterday, the scene was relatively calm shortly before 5 p.m.

"That intersection is basically a four-way dip," noted Marshall Astor in the comments section of a San Pedro-focused post earlier today. "In the morning, the intersection was manned and waiting for more rain, and crews were cleaning new debris out of the storm drains in the area by hand. Whatever went wrong, a lot of people were busting their ass to fix it and make sure it didn't happen again."
