Weather Alert!!!: Monsoon Blew Into Needles.

  

Needles, CA: A passing Monsoon storm arrived into Needles, California as well as into the Colorado River Tri-State area Thursday morning bringing in isolated showers, thunder, and flashes of lightning.

The Monsoon storm moved over into Needles, California around 5:00am PT bringing in a light shower and thunderstorms with lightning. Light showers and winds around 20 to 25 mph blew into Downtown Needles, California and flashes of lightning were seen in the Topock, Arizona area as well as the area around Fort Mohave, Arizona.

At one point, two lightning strikes hit close to where ZachNews Photojournalist Zachary Lopez was reporting with one of the lightning strikes hitting next to the KTOX 1340AM Radio Station as Zachary Lopez was about to enter the radio station to report on the news happening in Needles.

The lightning strike hit just north of the KTOX 1340AM Radio Station and just east of Needles Highway along the Colorado River. KTOX 1340AM did lose power for a few second then the power came back on.

All people living or planning to travel to the Colorado River Tri-State area should be prepared for any changes in weather conditions and use caution when driving in the Monsoon storm.
