'Steamy' San Diego Braces for Hurricane Kay

Areas east of San Diego, California, were warned they could receive up to five inches of rainfall as Hurricane Kay approached from the south after bringing tropical storm conditions to the Mexican state of Baja California Sur.

Storms associated with the hurricane brought precipitation to parts of California on Thursday, the National Weather Service (NWS) said.

Kimm Rogers said she filmed this footage in the Ocean Beach neighborhood of San Diego on Thursday morning, telling Storyful conditions were “steamy and foggy.”

“The humidity and extreme temperatures are unprecedented, at least from my experience,” Rogers told Storyful. The humidity was 83 percent on Thursday morning, with a forecasted high temperature of 91 degrees Fahrenheit prompting an excessive heat warning.

Flash and urban flooding were possible in southern California and southwestern Arizona on Friday and Saturday, the NWS said. Credit: Kimm Rogers via Storyful
