It’s all good as area drinks up much needed moisture
■ Staff Report / the valley chronicle
Hemet and San Jacinto residents braved a storm this week that left more than three inches of rain on the ground and saw temperatures drop into the low 40s by early Wednesday. The rain started falling Monday night and continued coming down until about 7 p.m. Tuesday with the heaviest rainfall occurring early Tuesday morning and again late Tuesday afternoon. While street gutters were filled to the brim and intersections were deep for anyone without a truck, serious flooding was avoided since the rain came down in a slow, steady pattern. One transformer was seen blowing out in San Jacinto, but no widespread power outages were reported. The weekend forecast is for mostly sunny skies and temperatures back into the mid-70s.
