Both directions of the 10 Freeway near the eastern edge of Joshua Tree National Park are closed. Heavy rainfall on Sunday washed out a bridge in Desert Center at the eastbound Interstate 10 and Eagle Mountain Road. The bridge is approximately half way between Palm Springs and the Arizona border. According to the Riverside County Fire Department, one driver was rescued from a truck that crashed in the collapse and was hospitalized with minor injuries. In San Diego County, Ramona experienced heavy rainfall that caused flooded streets with partially submerged cars and flooded homes.
