After being closed for two days, Yosemite National Park officials opened Yosemite Valley on Sunday after flooding washed out roads during a strong Pacific storm. And in Marin County, Muir Woods was also reopened, after waters flooded the parking lot.
But Muir and Stinson beaches remained closed to cars on Sunday because of extensive storm damage, the Golden Gate Park National Park Service said. Michelle Wilcox took video of the north end of the Stinson Beach parking lot, which she noted didn't fare well during the storm. In addition, park officials kept Tennessee Valley Beach and the western-most segment of the Tennessee Valley Trail closed on Sunday as well.
Forecasters said up to 6 inches of rain fell over two days as rivers swelled in Northern California.
The heaviest rain was in the northern Sierra and in coastal counties from San Francisco north to Mendocino during a 48-hour period ending Saturday afternoon.
Flooding was also reported along the Truckee River near Lake Tahoe.
