Flooding at 15th Avenue and Wawona Street in San Francisco.
A severe storm flooded parts of Northern California, including San Francisco, and led to rock slides near Big Sur this weekend. In San Francisco's West Portal neighborhood, torrential rains overwhelmed intersections and waist-deep floodwaters poured into homes, CBS San Francisco reported.

The storm system will track from the Rockies to the Great Lakes through Monday, the National Weather Service said. The storm is expected to bring heavy snow, gusty winds and hazardous travel conditions.

Storm total snowfall of 4 to 8 inches is expected by Monday evening from North Dakota into north-central Minnesota and northern Wisconsin, the National Weather Service said. Some of the snow will be heavy at times, with accumulations approaching 1 foot over northern Wisconsin and Minnesota.

Flood waters run over Interstate 90, two miles west of Mt. Vernon on Thursday, Sept. 12.
As damages from the flooding in US Midwest surpass $5.3 billion -- affecting farmers across the nation -- and more flooding is expected in 2020, it is time to step back and take stock of what is happening. The war on farmers -- the war on our food -- is a silent war with quiet weapons, meaning we must work to SEE what is going on: farm after farm lost. Christian makes it real.
