Heavy rain resulted in some flooding and lane closures on Los Angeles roadways Monday, and authorities searched a section of the Dominguez Channel in the Gardena area for a man thought to have been stranded in the waters.
Authorities went to the 1200 block of Cassidy Street in Gardena about 5:15 a.m. after a woman reported her male friend might be in the rain-swollen Dominguez Channel nearby, the county fire department reported.
Searchers looked for the man for about two and a half hours, and then called off the active search and reclassified the case as a missing-persons investigation, according to the Gardena Police Department.
Earlier, some flooding was reported at 4:35 a.m. in the fast lane of the Glen Anderson (105) Freeway at Nash Street in El Segundo, and at 80th Street and Avenue T in the Littlerock.
A rock slide about 5 a.m. caused flat tires for some vehicles at Las Virgenes and Piuma roads in Malibu, the CHP reported.
A mud slide at 5:19 a.m. blocked lanes of the transition road from the northbound Foothill (210) Freeway to the northbound Orange (57) Freeway in Glendora.
About 6 a.m., there was some flooding on the Washington Boulevard offramp from the northbound San Gabriel River (605) Freeway.
And about 6:20 a.m., a rockslide was reported on Angeles Crest Highway.
