Flooding across the San Francisco led to traffic delays, flood damage and cancelled plans after the National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area issued a flood warning for San Francisco Saturday afternoon.
FLOOD WARNING FOR SAN FRANCISCO
At 320 PM PST, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain that will cause flooding.
Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of highways, streets and underpasses as well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

Via Twitter, the organization said a “Doppler radar indicated heavy rain that will cause flooding.”
BART tweeted Saturday afternoon that there is no service between West Portal and Embarcadero due to flooding, but that they are honoring Muni tickets at the downtown San Francisco stations.
Flooding is expected in highways, streets and underpasses.
It’s coming down pretty steady in San Francisco.

NBC Bay Area meteorologist Rob Mayeda said the amounts of rain expected are “going to cause problems.”
So… the flooding SF. When you get nearly 3/4 to 1″ inch of rain w/in an hour that’s going to cause problems, esp in an urban area where runoff moves quickly down paved roads and inundates storm drainage/runoff systems. #CAwx@NWSBayAreapic.twitter.com/VWvp7L54Bl
