Lightning, Thunder Rattle Southern California

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Booming thunderclaps and lightning flashes
dancing across Southern California surprised residents as a summer
storm rumbled through the region, drenching some areas in rain.

Downpours briefly soaks areas of Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa
Barbara counties before dawn Friday and roadways are slick as the
morning commuter rush kicks off.

The National Weather Service says three thunderstorms began forming between Santa Catalina Island and the Palos Verdes Peninsula around midnight and they began moving along the coast.

Weather service lightning sensors detected 445 cloud-to-ground
lightning strikes from midnight to 3 a.m. in Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.
