While many on social media Saturday balked at some of the sensational headlines about this weekend's rain, given the relatively tame downpours that arrived early Saturday, Saturday night and Sunday morning have brought a fair more wind and rain, flood warnings to multiple parts of Sonoma County, and anyone traveling in or out of SFO likely faced a major delay or cancelation of their flight.
Flash flood watches have been in effect for San Francisco, but the greater danger is likely to our north and south, where as CBS 5 reports multiple rivers and creeks are expected to crest above flood stage on Sunday. These include the Russian River in Guerneville, the Napa River, the Carmel River, the San Lorenzo River in Santa Cruz, and the Guadalupe River in San Jose. Sonoma towns expecting flooding include Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park, Sonoma, Sebastopol, Cotati, and Boyes Hot Springs.
As the Chronicle reports, a portion of northbound 101 in Windsor was closed Sunday morning at around 7:30 a.m. due to flooding after several cars became stuck in rising water.
Also, per the paper, several downed trees were reported in San Francisco, including a tree that crashed into a house this morning on Brookdale Avenue near McLaren Park, and a tree that fell onto a parked car on Fell Street near Alamo Square.
There's been at least one death attributable directly to the storm, which was a woman who was killed Saturday morning while walking through the Canyon Lakes Golf Course in San Ramon, when she was struck by a fallen tree, according to CBS 5.
ABC 7 reports on a car that flipped over with several people inside on an offramp of 280 in Daly City early Sunday.
SFO has been a complete nightmare for many travelers, with 258 flights delayed and 754 cancelled on Saturday alone, and an equal number expected to be delayed and canceled Sunday as well.
A high wind advisory has been in effect for the Bay Bridge.
And as of this morning, some 10,000 Bay Area residents are without power.
By Monday afternoon, urban areas are expected to see another 2.5 inches of rain, per the Chron, and rural and mountain areas could see another 3 to 7 inches.
Stay safe out there!
