High tides and pounding surf left parts of Surfside flooded Tuesday, but homeowners like Mike Donovan have seen enough big waves over the years to take it in stride. "This is only the beginning, dude, only the beginning," said Donovan, 53, a six-year resident of the upscale enclave near the mouth of Anaheim Bay. Continued high surf along with heavy rain is expected through the end of the week, though officials said they are taking steps to prevent a repeat of Tuesday's flooding.
