(AP) — A second storm fueled in part by a typhoon is hitting California'sborder with Oregon with heavy rain and gusty winds as it makes its way south.
After an overnight lull, rain returned Saturday afternoon to Eureka and nearby cities, where winds at 40 mph and gusts up to 70 mph were being recorded in the highest points.
National Weather Service Matthew Kidwell says moisture from Typhoon Songda is enhancing the storm expected to reach the San Francisco Bay Area later Saturday.
Officials in Del Norte and Humboldt counties are providing sand and sandbags for residents to protect against flooding. Farther south in the San Francisco Bay Area, residents are cleaning gutters and clearing trees
The storm follows a potent weather system that walloped Northern California on Friday, knocking out power, flooding roads and delaying flights.
