After the rain, beautiful California rainbows

After getting pummeled with record-setting rains, mudslides and flooding, Southern Californians were treated late Wednesday afternoon to a collection of brilliant rainbows that gave them hope relief was near. Some even saw double rainbows. We received nearly two dozen photos and videos showing the colorful post-storm spectacles:


In Hollywood Hills, Marie Sager captured a stunning pair of rainbows over the Hollywood sign that continued for 20 minutes. "The storm is over and the sky is clear. I looked out of my window and there was this incredible rainbow," she wrote. "My camera couldn't pick up the colors, but they were very bright."


San Diego photographer Jim Grant said one last patch of nasty weather was followed by a pair of rainbows at about 4 p.m. that could be seen all over the city.


At about the same time, Ryan Nelson was docked on the Holland America cruise ship ms Rotterdam when he captured the colorful sight from the San Diego port.


"I have never seen a partial rainbow so thick!!" Kathi Cordsen in Fullerton wrote in her iReport. She said it lasted about seven or eight minutes.
