Cars navigating deep waters on Santa Rosa roadways amid storm

SANTA ROSA (KRON) -- Heavy downpour and slick roads -- this was the scene in and around Santa Rosa for much of the day.

There was plenty of flooding as well, especially on Llano road, where cars had to navigate through deep water.

A stretch of Redwood Highway was also closed due to flooding. Over on South Wright Road, drivers were better off in a motor boat than car.

The downtown area the Santa Rosa Creek was bustling with rapids good enough for a rafting trip.

So good in fact, Prince Memorial Greenway, the pedestrian walkway which run through the downtown, was closed between Santa Rosa Avenue and Pierson for fear walkers could get washed away.
