CA Bay Area continues to experience powerful storm system

MARIN COUNTY, Calif. (NBC, KYMA/KECY) - Powerful storm systems continued to pound the Bay Area this weekend resulting in widespread flooding and road closures.

On Sunday, crews continued to pump water off Highway 37.

This comes after about a 2 mile stretch of the roadway closed in both directions on Saturday due to flooding.

Highway 37 will remain shut down until Caltrans and CHP deem it safe.

However, the area is flat and low making reopening difficult to predict.

Additionally, overnight rain and high tides will bring more severe flooding.

Rainfall may also cause some creeks and reservoirs in Santa Clara County to overflow.

The Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVWD) made room in the Vasona Reservoir on Sunday as the Lexington Reservoir will start spilling over Monday.

However, SCVWD doesn't expect the surrounding community to be impacted by flooding.

They will also be releasing some water out of Stevens Creek reservoir in Cupertino.
