A 30-foot-by-50-foot (9-by-15-meter) section of Interstate 10 over a desert wash ‒ or dry riverbed ‒ in southeastern California west of Arizona has collapsed amid heavy rain, causing indefinite closure of a route used by 27,000 vehicles per day. The eastbound section of the bridge collapsed on Sunday afternoon during the second day of record rainfall in Southern California. Rain on Saturday broke records in at least 11 Southern California locations, including five areas that received the most rain ever recorded on any July date since records have been kept, according to the National Weather Service. Downtown Los Angeles, for instance, received 0.36 of an inch of rain on Saturday, the wettest July day there since 1886.
