CHP officials said Lucas Valley Drive in Marin County was closed because a tree was down there. Lodi Lane at the Napa River was closed due to flooding.

Weather was likely to blame for a car that flipped over on a ramp to Hwy 280 in Daly City. CHP and firefighters and the driver turned over an SUV with their bare hands. The reason they did this was reportedly because there was at least a one hour delay for tow trucks in the area. Apparently the driver and occupants were all ok. The car itself did have significant damage to its side.



In the South Bay, a tree came crashing down onto Montague Expressway in Santa Clara Sunday morning. A driver drove their car over the branches and got stuck. It's unclear if the tree fell just moments before they drove by, or if they simply didn't see it.
