L.A. residents awoke on Saturday morning to a strong thunderstorm, with heavy rain and frequent lightning.
There was a lot of lightning. A LOT.
The lightning was also seen in San Diego. ⚡️
Beaches were also cleared during the stormy chaos.
There was also a record-breaking amount of rain in some places.
The National Weather Service had been warning for days of the potential for storms and crazy surf conditions as Tropical Storm Dolores made its presence felt along Southern California.
Storms are also possible on Sunday.
With California struggling through a devastating drought, the storm brought some much needed rain -- but also freaked the shit out of a bunch of celebrities.
The creator of Community was anxious.
As was model Karrueche Tran.
Kristin Bauer van Straten (aka Pam from True Blood) said the storm was all too much for her poor pup.
Podcaster and comedian Marc Maron just wanted everyone to calm the fuck down.
To be fair, it was all pretty scary.
Twitter users said all the lighting strikes sparked some fires amid all the rain.
But mostly people were not happy about their Saturday sleep-in being ruined.
Others didn't mind so much, though.
What could all this rain and thunder mean?
Is the city doomed?
Are L.A. residents about to run out of their favorite food?
Maybe L.A. just needs to get used to the concept of rain again.
It's ok, you guys. It happens from time to time but is perfectly natural. ⚡️☔️
