It's Flooding!

Scott Lucas | December 2, 2014 | Lifestyle Story City Life

Heavy rainfall has plunged the Bay Area into a commute straight out of the Old Testament, with dozens of cars crashing during the morning commute due to flooded roads. (Even the cable cars are out of service.)

The National Weather Service has issued a small-stream urban flooding advisory through 7:30 pm tonight. "Overall, this should be a net positive for California, but there can still be some localized flooding," Meteorologist Carl Erickson was reported as saying.

According to the Weather Service, the Bay Area has received more than an inch of rainfall since the rainstorms began over the weekend. In total, rain could hit one to two inches in San Francisco, one to three inches in the North Bay, three-quarter of a inch to an inch and a half in the East Bay, and two to four inches near Santa Cruz, according to CBS. It's supposed to let up a bit tonight and tomorrow, but as of this morning, another cell of heavy rain was moving towards the city. Ominously.

Flights have been delayed at San Francisco, Oakland, and San Jose airports. Oh yeah, and a drunk driver somehow got Mustang car up on the pedestrian and bike lane of the Golden Gate Bridge early this morning. Good luck with that commute!
