Repairing Storm Damage in Marin County

Communities in the North Bay on Saturday began cleaning up after this week's rainstorms caused floods and damaged homes.

At Las Baulines Nursery in Bolinas, the flood waters haven’t fully receded.

"The creek has gone down low enough where I can now start pumping the water here back into the creek," said Nursery employee Carey Cherney, who began attempting to pump water out.

Flooding also damaged a home nearby, resident Christine Machado says some of her pottery equipment inside her garage was damaged but can be salvaged.

Caltrans crews with front-end loaders worked to clear rock and silt that was cracked across the road as debris swept in by the runoff.

At Stinson Beach, a parking lot was damaged as rainfall and runoff eroded the pavement. 

The lot remained closed on Sunday. It is not clear when the parking area will be fixed and reopen.

At Muir Woods, visitors on Saturday had to settle for a distant view of the recreation area as it was also closed because of the rains.

The recreation area reopened to vehicles and visitors on Sunday.
