For those of you who don't know yet, which is probably a little less than two of you at most, a storm if a brewing. And it promises to be a spectacular one. Hopefully. As you know, we here in San Francisco love to overreact to rain, it's time to let loose!
Anyway, the rain falls down to wake your dreams and wash away your sanity starting later tonight. According to CBS 5, "The National Weather Service issued a wind warning for the Bay Area on Tuesday, meaning meaning wind speeds of 25-40 mph are expected and gusts of 60-70 mph are possible. Winds of this magnitude can easily topple trees and power lines and lead to power outages."
The weather service has also issued "a flash flood watch for the San Francisco Peninsula and adjoining counties to the south." And if you have any plans of taking the yacht out for a spin, you might want to hold off for a few days as well.
The impending storm comes from a "western Pacific typhoon named Melor that hit Japan last week."
In San Francisco, you can get free sandbags at the Department of Public Works Corporation Yard at 2323 Cesar Chavez Street. Onlt 10 sandbags per address please. SF Chron
