ruining travel plans for thousands. I wanted to meet my grandson and be at his christening, but I'm gonna miss that. Reporter: And it's not over yet for weary travelers, with many freezing tonight, roads could see a refreeze. Tom? Thank you. The second major system is in the west. The major storm slamming the coast, some areas bracing for possibly the worst flooding in years. ABC's senior meteorologist rob Marciano is in napa valley. Reporter: Tonight, extreme weather carving a deadly path up the west coast. Heavy rain swamping California, stranding drivers, firefighters having to use their bare hands to get this SUV upright. This taxi in Oakland sliding off the road into an estuary, the driver pulled from the car would later die. Yosemite national park, closed. A mandatory evacuation issued as the Sierra river rises too. It makes me a little nervous, gives me anxiety. Reporter: Residents stacking sand bags, and bracing for major flash flooding and mudslides.
