Buckling down at the beaches for the big storm

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The storm hit the beach areas hard Friday. Many coastal neighborhoods saw downed trees and flooding.

The rain came down hard and fast in Bonita Cove, the wind so violent it snapped a tree into pieces.

CBS News 8 caught up with Michelle Lebeau, who was feeding the homeless at Mission Bay Park Friday. She says they were expecting bad weather, but not quite this bad.

"This is the stormiest I've ever seen. Been feeding the homeless for three years and this is worst it's been," Michelle said.

The wind sent huge ripples across the water in Cardiff, where wind surfers took advantage of the storm.

Cars in Ocean Beach drove through a bit of an obstacle course, avoiding palm fronds scattered in the road.

On Mission Boulevard, some took it easy, driving through big puddles. Others, not so much.

College student Victoria Hambley came home to flooding in Mission Beach.

"When we got home the sidewalk was starting to flood and we noticed it was coming under the fence. Our landlord had sandbags for us," Victoria said.
