Updates from the storm’s aftermath: ‘Sometimes nature tells you, hey, we are still in charge’

Amid the heavy rains from Tropical Storm Dolores that reached Southern California, a bridge on Interstate 10 in Desert Center between Coachella and the Arizona border collapsed Sunday, buckling into a river of water and mud.

Thirty feet of the eastbound lanes washed away and one driver had to be rescued from a truck that was on the bridge when it collapsed, authorities said.
