Southern California hailstorm turns Huntington Beach white as snow


A fast-moving storm through Southern California on Monday dumped so much hail on Huntington Beach that it appeared to turn white.

According to the National Weather Service, at least an inch of icy pellets coated the sand at Huntington Beach after the system roared ashore Monday morning. The pea-sized hail at Huntington was layered about an inch deep, The Los Angeles Times reported.

It's the second winter storm to hit the area in several days. Earlier, hailstorm was reported to the north on Venice Beach.

A winter storm also brought snow and rain to Arizona.
