Extraordinary Thunderstorms Over California Desert

Here is something you may never see again: the intensity of thunderstorms along I-8 in Southern California. I fully expect the highway to be closed or even washed out. Intense thunderstorms with flooding problems are also possible along I-10. Finally, there is a large cluster of storms along I-15 that could cause flooding.

Here is a map of the warnings in effect:
Amber is a severe thunderstorm warning for wind gusts of 60 mph and large hail. Maroon is flash flood warnings. Greens are flood advisories.


  1. More washouts on the BNSF transcon in this area possible???

  2. At that time, the greater risk was to UP's Sunset Route.
