SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A windy, wet night has left Bay Area roadways littered with fallen trees and debris, while thousands were left without power.
The National Weather Service issued a high-wind advisory Monday, and it will remain in effect until 8 p.m.
Gusts reaching 45 mph are expected in parts of the Bay Area, and motorists are advised to drive cautiously.
Overnight gusts exceeding 30 mph brought down trees and branches in some San Francisco neighborhoods, San Francisco Department of Public Works spokeswoman Rachel Gordon said.
Reports of fallen trees started coming in around 3 a.m., she said.
In the 700 block of Guerrero Street, a 30-foot tree fell onto cars, damaging several vehicles, but no injuries were reported, Gordon said. Another vehicle was damaged by fallen tree debris at 14th and Sanchez streets, she said.
Additionally, a massive, roughly 80-foot tree fell overnight near 48th Avenue and Point Lobos, according to Gordon.
In other neighborhoods including the Sunset District, Lake Merced area, Mission District, ColeValley, and Western Addition, crews were working this morning to clear debris, she said.Comments
