More than ten inches of rain has already fallen at clear creek, california. How much more will we get? It's going to be on the order of 20 inches of storm total rainfall. On top of it, you have video like this coming in. This from parts of california and the san francisco bay area. Wind gusts up to 54 miles per hour in the city. And outside, some of the higher terrain had 88-mile-per-hour gusts. The truckee river will likely crest and flood by tomorrow. Some of the heaviest flooding they've seen in more than a decade. Finally, it's not just northern california and the pacific northwest. It's southern california that feel the high surf. Some surfers could be happy. But could be dangerous.
