At least two people were killed in the Seattle metropolitan area after a tree fell on a vehicle due to the storm, according to the USA Today daily.

More than 160,000 homes and businesses were left without power Sunday in California, more than 170,000 in northwest Washington state, and more than 28,000 in Oregon due to severe weather.

Floods in the San Francisco Bay Area inundated the streets of Berkeley and inundated the toll gate of a huge bridge across the bay in Oakland. More than 15 centimeters of rain fell on Mount Tamalpais, north of San Francisco, Sunday morning, according to a report from the Met Office.

In San Rafael, many roads have been covered by water with a height of more than 60 cm, and city officials say more than 330 calls were received by police and firefighters, four times the average.

The US Weather Service (NWS) has warned of the possibility of “historic rain” in downtown Sacramento, California.

In Butte County, north of the California state capital, Highway Police closed State Route 70 due to mudslides in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Although the once devastating forest fires here have now been completely curbed, the fire has destroyed vegetation and the soil cannot absorb water, making the area vulnerable to landslides and floods.
