San Francisco was battered by a heavy winter storm on Saturday that caused localized flooding throughout the city.


"A low pressure system off the Northern California coast Saturday hurled bands of strong downpours into the Bay Area, triggering a flood warning for San Francisco," KPIX-TV reported.

"San Francisco Muni officials tweeted that train service between West Portal to Embarcadero Station had been shut down due to flooding. Several streets were flooded in San Francisco’s western neighborhood including knee-high water at 15th Ave and Wawona," the station noted.
