GLENDALE — Other than a small backyard landslide, street flooding and fallen branches, Glendale fared relatively well compared to other Southland cities that were pummeled by a fierce storm on Wednesday.
The overnight rainstorm caused a tree to lean on a home's roof on the 400 block of Spencer Street, officials said. A rock also crushed through a home's wall on the 1500 block of Melwood Drive. No one was injured.
Glendale fire crews also assisted in a morning search of the Los Angeles River after receiving several reports that a man had possibly fallen in the quick-moving water at Studio City and needed to be rescued, officials said. The report turned out to be false, Glendale Fire Capt. Stuart Stefani said.
Glendale experienced rain at rates of up to an inch per hour Wednesday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service, and reportedly saw pea-sized hail around 2 p.m.
