LOS ANGELES (AP) — Stormy weather moving through Southern California has brought heavy snow to the mountains and damaging lightning strikes.

A lightning strike late Friday morning in Riverside County started a small fire on the roof of an Applebee's restaurant in the Eastvale area. The county Fire Department says no one was hurt but damage was estimated at $10,000.

Elsewhere, Southern California Edison spokesman Dan Chung says a possible lightning strike on an electrical substation knocked out power to about 29,000 customers in Huntington Park and surrounding cities.

Intense hail has also fallen in some areas.

The National Weather Service says the storm could dump up to 10 inches of snow in the highest mountains and the level could drop to 2,000 feet.
