No major problems on South Bay roads as storms batters region

SOUTH BAY (KRON) -- Depending on the width and depth of the channel and how much the flow is disrupted by tree limbs and other debris, Coyote Creek is weathering the storm fairly well.

A section along Rock Springs Drive is well below flood stage much to the relief of Rose Delfino who must cross a footbridge to get to her horse stable on the other side.

The creek is swollen from the rain but also from water being released this past week from Anderson Reservoir which is far from spilling over, as it did in 2017.

At a briefing today, the mayor and other officials said they have a plan for dealing with any emergencies that might arise.

Officials are also monitoring the Guadalupe River and other streams.

Work is underway to clear a large landslide that blocked Hicks Road in Los Gatos.

Drivers were alerted to a worsening sinkhole on Bailey Avenue and no one was hurt when a tree landed between two homes on Hillsdale Avenue where Roy Carillo worries about a second tree threatening his house.

High winds, heavy rain and a lot of mostly minor street flooding made for an ugly day on the road but those rivers, creeks and streams, while still rising, have so far posed no major problems.
