SAN DIEGO, CA-Jan 05, 2016: The morning commute was pretty tame, with the steady rain not hitting until about 9am. This is Highway 805. JOHN GIBBINS / San Diego Union-Tribune (/ John Gibbins / San Diego Union-Tribune)

On Tuesday morning, as the second storm of the week hit San Diego, the National Weather Service (NWS) issued a flash flood warning.

As heavier rainfall hit the county throughout the day, the warning became a reality when SDPD sent out the following Tweet:

Yup, nothing says flooding in San Diego like blocked access to the Fashion Valley Mall during a storm.

Also, be on the lookout if you’re in the Sorrento Valley area.
