Several roads in San Diego County were closed due to flooding including Monument Road from Hollister out to the beach and Airway at La Media just south of Highway 905 near the Otay Mesa border crossing. As a precaution the Ocean Beach Pier was closed for a period due to weather conditions.
A high surf advisory will be in effect from 4 a.m. Saturday to 4 a.m.Monday.
