MESA, Ariz. -- Isolated and severe thunderstorms hit various parts of the Valley on Monday night. The storms brought lightning, rain and blowing dust.

A mobile home park in Mesa seemed to get hit the hardest. At least two homes at the park near Broadway and Higley roads were damaged.

East Mesa got more than one inch of rain in about 35 minutes. That made for treacherous driving conditions. Wind gusts of more than 45 mph were also reported in the area.
