SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — A flash flood watch was in effect for inland Southern California a day after seven hikers were rescued when they were trapped by rising waters following downpours in mountains east of Los Angeles. One of the wettest summer monsoon seasons has brought drenching storms for weeks that have caused damage in desert and mountain areas. Video aired by KTLA-TV showed a San Bernardino County sheriff’s rescue team using a rope system to help seven hikers, including four children, across a rushing stream Saturday near Forest Falls. The National Weather Service said the threat of flash flooding would persist until early Monday.
