The largest ourtage is in Pacifica,  where about 1,120 customers are without power. In addtion, the storm also caused the slow traffic during the morning commute, and at least 73 arrival and departure flights are canceled.

The second storm is expected to arrive Thursday and will last into Friday. It could have the flooding risk with as much as five inches of rain falling the North Bay.
