Across Santa Clara County, five of the 10 reservoirs are over their capacity, and there is more rain expected next week.

Santa Cruz Public Works reported 56 incidents in the mountains Thursday evening into Friday.
All the rain and chaos forced the closure of many roads including Bear Creek just off Highway 17.
On Glenwood drive, the roadway is nearly unrecognizable after a wall failed opening up a giant hole.
Just around the corner, a mudslide created a slip out, that is now covered by a tarp.

Early Friday morning, a truck driver came across a mudslide on Black Road and couldn't turn around. They called for help and California Highway Patrol arrived.
"We ran into this giant mudslide. We have a trailer attached so we couldn't turn around too easy. Thankfully the police showed up," said Nick Berezny, the truck driver.
Officers got out in the rain reattached the truck trailer and helped them turn around.

Berezny says he's grateful that CHP was nearby to help out "Well that's a rather steep cliff, full of mud and water and probably not to fun to go down there," said Berezny.
