Heavy rain and hail pound San Francisco area

STORY: The state was already reeling from the effects of heavy rainfall the previous day, as footage posted on social media showed water roaring down a cliff face and beside roads in Fresno on Monday (January 9).

The rapid succession of storms left downtown San Francisco drenched in 10.3 inches (26 cm) of rain from Dec. 26 through Jan. 4, the wettest 10-day stretch recorded there in more than 150 years, since 1871, according to the NWS.
