The Impact of the Storm: Toppled Trees, Crushed Cars, Debris

San Diego Police warned that heavy rain and uprooted trees closed multiple roads

The most powerful storm in a series of three pummeled into San Diego Sunday evening, leaving behind toppled trees, flooded streets, damaged cars and lots of debris.

In University City, a large tree fell on five cars, destroying four of the vehicles, San Diego Fire-Rescue officials said. The 7900 block of Camino Huerta has been shut down as crews work, and no one was injured.

The Poway Road grade, between Espola Road and Highway 67, was closed just after 6:30 p.m. after a large boulder fell on the road, the City of Poway said.

Crews were able to move the boulder to the side of the road until around 7:45 p.m. when a bulldozer was brought in to remove it.
