Badly needed rainfall hit the Bay Area Saturday and although it was welcomed, it didn't come without complications.

The heavy rain soaked O.co Coliseum, cancelling the Bay Bridge series between the A's and the Giants just two days before opening day and causing another backup problem in the A's locker room.

This is now the fourth problem with the plumbing since June of last year. At that time, there was an issue in the team's club house showers. Then in September, sewage was coming into the A's dug out and into the coaches' dressing rooms.

But die hard A's fans promise to keep coming back to the aging stadium.

In San Francisco, the oversaturated soil couldn't keep a massive tree standing. It came crashing down onto a house in the Castro District just before noon. The tree wiped out gas and power lines connected to the house.

Crews quickly responded to cut down the tree and repair the damaged lines. No one was hurt when the tree came down.

In Marin County, a tree also collapsed, falling across Nicasio Valley Road. It shut down traffic around 9:30 a.m. Crews worked for more than an hour to cut apart the tree and clear it away.
