Flooding on Cota Street

As sheets of rain — with smatterings of lightning and hail — bombard Santa Barbara this week, Independent staff and readers are submitting photos and videos of the action. We’ll post them here as they come in, and feel free to email news@independent.com with your own visuals. Also be sure to check us out on Facebook. Stay dry, and stay safe!
