HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (AP) — The beach at Southern California’s “Surf City” has been turned white by a dumping of hail from a fast-moving storm.

The National Weather Service says at least an inch of icy pellets coated the sand at Huntington Beach after the system roared ashore Monday morning.

Brianna Burkhart, who works at Duke’s restaurant on the city pier, says the sky suddenly turned dark and then opened up.

She says when it was all over the beach was completely white and it looked like it had snowed.

It’s the second winter storm to hit the area in several days. Over the weekend a smattering of hail was reported to the north on Venice Beach.

Plane pilots reported seeing funnel clouds over the ocean about 25 miles off Redondo Beach.
