Videos show the power of record-breaking L.A. rainstorm
Southern California was hit by record rainfall and powerful winds Sunday, and that prompted some to record what they were seeing and post their videos online.
Downtown Los Angeles had received 2.42 inches of rain as of midnight, nearly an inch more than the previous record for the day, set in 1943, National Weather Service numbers show. Hurricane-force wind gusts of up to 98 mph roared through mountain passes while gusts of up to 70 mph toppled trees across Southern California's urban landscape.
Here are some images from YouTube and KTLA-TV (Channel 5):
