    Southern Californians along the coast are being warned to take shelter from "dangerous lightning" if they're on the beach.

    The National Weather Service issued a warning Monday morning, reporting dangerous lightning at 9:15 a.m. from Hermosa Beach to Palos Verdes.

    "If on beach, take shelter" the NWS said in a tweet.

    Newport Beach lifeguards issued voluntary evacuations of all beaches and piers due to lightning strikes.

    The warning comes as thunderstorms build off the coast after a weekend of winter storms that drenched the region with rain, snow and hail.
