“Just started hearing the rain and it got pretty intense, looked outside and we saw the water was pretty high,” Rosamaria Gonzales said.

Not even the sandbags placed in and out of Gonzales’ home could keep the rush of water out.

“It flooded our garage, it flooded several of our neighbors,” she said.

Gonzales shared photos of her neighbor’s homes — at one point, cars and trucks submerged.

“Water was pretty high on the tires that it eventually reached the hood of the car across the streets,” she said.

Neighbors spent the afternoon cleaning up debris of what’s apparently from people’s front yards.

The National Weather Service warned of flooding in San Francisco.

Traffic was backed up on 280 north in Daly City as water swamped lanes.

“Everyone going fast through the rain, not exactly safe right now,” Eric Louie said.

“Just take it slow,” one driver said. “If everybody drives the speed limit, we’ll be OK.”
