CHP urges drivers to be cautious on wet, flooded roads 

An early October storm hit the Bay Area on Tuesday night, making roads hard to handle, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

According to CHP Officer Ralph Caggiano overnight rain led to flooding in Oakland, San Jose, Marin, parts of state Highway 17 near Santa Cruz and San Francisco.

Caggiano said Caltrans has been busy clearing drains to relieve flooding and the CHP has been handling many collisions overnight.

The CHP advises drivers reduce speeds on slick roads and leave more space between cars, especially since a large body of water may suddenly appear on roads.
