It’s a matter of fact: according to the data, the South Bay was hardest hit by this week’s rain storms. Storm drains were overwhelmed, homes were flooded and reporters and photographers documented the story over three days.

Wednesday headlines: “Storms wreak havoc in South Bay”

Thursday headlines: “Second storm pelts South Bay”

Friday headlines: “San Pedro residents now coping with flood aftermath” and “Sandbags, sand were scarce commodities in San Pedro during storm”

Plus, “San Pedro beach parking area remains closed due to mudslides”

Sea creatures also soaked: “Dozens of disoriented pelicans recovering from storm’s effects” and “Dolphin is latest marine mammal to wash up on Cabrillo Beach”
