Spinouts, Hydroplanes for Wet Commute

Heavy rains slowing down the drive to work.

    Heavy downpours and ponding on the highways are leading to some dodgy commutes this morning.

    An overturned box truck on Berryessa Avenue in San Jose is causing one snarl. A spinout on I-580 E near Livermore Avenue slammed a car into the center divide.

    The connecting ramp between I-580 E and I-238 W has a deep pool at the juncture, causing at least one hydroplane.

    A fast-moving system hit Oakland at around 3:45 a.m. today, bringing gusty winds, heavy rain and even some hail.
