Weather Update!!: Needles, CA: Thunderstorms moved over Needles, California and along the Colorado River.

Weather Update!!: Needles, CA: Thunderstorms moved over Needles, California and along the Colorado River.

Thunderstorms moved over Needles, California and along the Colorado River at around 3:00am PT on Friday, September 8th, 2017.

ZachNews Photojournalist Zachary A. Lopez rushed outside to report live on the passing thunderstorms at ZachNews on Facebook.

Heavy rain fell over Needles, California bringing a stream of water to flow down J Street near the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department’s Colorado River Station towards Downtown Needles, California.

As the heavy rain continued to fall, thunder roared across the area and lightning flashed like an outside strobe light over the area awaking people up around the community.

A lightning strike caused the the power to flick off in Downtown Needles, California which was captured live on ZachNews.

All of the runoff rushed along streets that have been repaved and reconstructed bringing mud and small rocks at the intersections of West Broadway at J Street and West Broadway at K Street.

The runoff of mud and small rocks then washed into the North K Street Underpass where a car almost got stuck in the flooded water.

City of Needles Public Works Crews closed the North K Street Underpass, but a van was later spotted stuck in the mud and had to be helped out to be pushed out of the mud by passer byers including ZachNews Photojournalist Zachary A. Lopez.

As the thunderstorms moved across the Colorado River, more heavy rain fell over Needles, California as more thunder and lightning flashed over Mohave Valley, Arizona.

As morning rose, the thunderstorms continued to move north into Laughlin, Nevada, Bullhead City, Arizona, and widen out to the east towards Golden Valley, Arizona and Kingman, Arizona.

All of the runoff from the thunderstorms made flood basins flooded with muddy water, the Colorado River flowed muddy, and baseball fields became puddles of water and mud.

At this moment, the North K Street Underpass remains closed from Front Street to Walnut Street.

Please stay away from flooded roadways, drive safely as the roadways are wet and muddy,  and report any downed power lines or fires caused by the lightning.

**** More information is still being collected from the aftermath of the thunderstorms and will be posted here as soon as possible on ZachNews. Stay tuned everybody. ****
