Neighbors along Lighthouse Drive in Stockton woke up with waterfront Monday, after heavy rains flooded the street.
"It was just flooded. It was kind of scary and all garbage cans were all over," neighbor Barbara Tankersly said.
Tankersly and her neighbors were left with a big mess, as their garbage cans went floating down the street.
The loose garbage only helped clog the storm drains further.
As quickly as the water rose, it receded as city crews helped clear the drains.
