Approximately 4,000 lightning bolts were were reported over the past 24 hours, forecasters said Tuesday. About half that total was reported in Orange, San Diego and Riverside counties by 11 p.m. Monday.
The count also included dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning totals of 524 for San Diego County, 171 in Los Angeles County and 62 for Orange County, according to an NWS tally.
The lightning strikes were part of a raging storm that rolled into the Southland on Monday afternoon, bringing periods of heavy downpours, thunder, strong wind gusts and even hail well into the evening hours.
