The remnants of Tropical Storm Sergio circled the Imperial Valley late Friday night and early Saturday morning.
The North end and Colorado River area of Imperial County took the brunt of the storm with a number of roadways flooded and several accidents blamed on flood washes and slick roads. The first indication of problems was noticed shortly before midnight when the California Highway Patrol reported flooding on the Borrego Salton Seaway. Several vehicles were said to be stuck in mud along the highway. The road remained closed into Saturday afternoon. About an hour later , flooding was reported on Highway 86 near the Riverside County line. Southbound lanes were closed for nearly 7 hours. At 5:00 a.m. State Highway 111 was closed at the Riverside County line because of flooding and several washouts. The highway was reopened at about 11:30 a.m. Saturday. Ogilby Road was also closed as the roadway was flooded. It was expected to reopen at about Noon Saturday. A bridge was washed out in the area of International and Alcott Roads. Flooding also reported at Imler and Huff Roads. Imperial County Public Works and Caltrans crews were working through the night and well into the weekend to clear the roads and highways.
