SAN FRANCISCO | The Latest: Thunderstorm dumped 1½ inches in an hour
SAN FRANCISCO — The Latest on rain in California in regions scarred by wildfires (all times local):
A thunderstorm in a wildfire-scarred area of Northern California dumped up to 1½ inches (3.8 centimeters) of rain in an hour, toppling trees and trapping motorists in flooded roads.
National Weather Service meteorologist Craig Shoemaker says the thunderstorm Thursday afternoon caused streams to quickly swell and roads to flood.
He says heavy rain in a short period of time is the worst thing that can happen in the burn scar.
