Schools clean up after Victorville flooding
VICTORVILLE, Calif. (KABC) -- Cleanup was in progress Saturday in several schools in Victorville after wild weather swept through the area causing flooding Friday.
Various streets in Forest Falls were stuck in up to 5 feet of mud after heavy rain triggered a mudslide on Friday.
Area thunderstorms triggered flash-flood warnings in parts of San Bernardino and Riverside counties.
The mudslide happened around 1:50 p.m. Friday when a period of heavy rain doused the area. Residents on Valley Drive of the Falls and other streets in Forest Falls were stuck in 1 to 5 feet of mud, San Bernardino County officials said.
Two rescues were made Friday as a result of the mudslide. A swiftwater team was called in after a couple was separated during the downpour, leaving one woman on the other side of a heavy stream that she could not cross. Rescue teams also saved an elderly man who was hiking during the slide. Both people were successfully rescued and neither was injured.
