Summer storm brings lightning, flooding

CAJON PASS As severe summer storm swept through the Inland Empire, locals observed a lot of lightning strikes. While lightning is impressive to watch from a distance, it can be dangerous.

There were no reports of injuries or fires from the lightning.

Heavy rains and flash flooding covered the area because the ground can't absorb all that water at once, and as the moisture builds up again Friday, drivers are warned to be on alert.

There may be more weather like this on its way.
