Flooding reported in the Antelope Valley

September 9, 2012 |  7:14 pm

Rain pummeled a swath of the Antelope Valley on Sunday, with flash floods swamping roads and tossing rocks and mud onto California 138, the National Weather Service said.

The weather service issued a flash flood warning for the stretch between the community of Pearblossom and Lake Los Angeles until 8:15 p.m. It also urged drivers to avoid trying to cross roadways covered in water, which is usually deeper than it appears.

At least half an inch of rain had doused the area east of Palmdale, said meteorologist Scott Sukup, though the storm appeared to be losing strength.
