Unusual Tornado Alert for San Diego County Amidst Historic Storm

In a rare turn of events, the National Weather Service issued a tornado warning on Tuesday for parts of San Diego County, catching many residents off guard. El Cajon, La Mesa, and Santee, located northeast of central San Diego, found themselves under this alert until 12:45 p.m. local time.

This warning adds to the chaos brought by a historic and deadly storm wreaking havoc across Southern California. The region has already witnessed hundreds of mudslides, compounding the challenges posed by multiple flood warnings.

Forecasters anticipated this record-breaking storm to dump as much as 3 inches of rain on San Diego and Los Angeles by Wednesday. With the ground already heavily saturated in many areas, fears of flooding and mudslides have intensified.

As a result, the San Diego region remains under a flood watch throughout the evening. The National Weather Service has cautioned that excessive runoff could lead to flooding in various low-lying and flood-prone locations, including rivers, creeks, and streams.

Amidst these turbulent weather conditions, residents are urged to stay vigilant and take necessary precautions to ensure their safety.
