Storm brings hail, strong winds to L.A., Orange County areas
As of 8:10 a.m., the storm was moving over Costa Mesa and into Huntington Beach, according to the National Weather Service.
"We heard the thunder and then all of a sudden we heard on the roof the slamming of the hail," said Costa Mesa Police Officer J. Horn. "They were good-sized hail –- like big shooter marbles."
The National Weather Service issued a severe storm warning and said the storm will continue moving north through the morning. The agency said other storms were forming near Dana Point and the southern Santa Ana Mountains and moving north.
