Welp, they’re here, the back-to-back storms that weather forecasters had predicted could dump up to one inch of rain per hour on Los Angeles. Some neighborhoods might even see a month’s worth of rain in one day.

As of 4 p.m., the storms had already dumped a ton of the rain in the Valley, with a whopping 4.02 inches of rain in Canoga Park, 3.46 inches to Agoura Hills, and 2.57 inches to Northridge. The Getty Center saw 1.29 inches, and the Hollywood Reservoir’s gotten 1.22 inches.

The rain was previously expected to let up around this evening, but the storms rolled in later than anticipated. What began this morning as a light rain has become significantly more intense as the day’s worn on, causing trees to fall, streets to flood, cars to become marooned in instant lakes across the city.

Here are some of the most dramatic images showing how the storms are playing out across LA.
