    Lightning, thunder and pounding rain were moving across parts of Southern California Friday afternoon.

    The San Fernando Valley saw heavy rain and thunderstorms around 3 p.m., with some describing "buckets of rain" in North Hollywood.

    Commuters in Santa Monica saw rain-slicked roads, and downtown LA saw "pouring rain."

    In Toluca Lake, a dog was lost in the Los Angeles River and struggled to keep its head above water as it moved with the rushing rainwater toward Burbank. A firefighter swooped in from above and pulled it to safety.
