WEST COAST - Winter weather has caused more than 30 million people to be under flood watches from California to Arizona.
California is in the middle of a Pineapple Express, which when a series of storms start in the Hawaiin islands and gather water from the Pacific Ocean.
For some, the situation has been life-threatening with crews making water rescues.
In Placer County, a woman is recovering after a large tree crashed onto her car.
Another major hazard has also been mudslides.
"It sounded like, like a fire, like I don't know it was a lot of wind," said Lisa Molbert, a resident in the Bay Area. "It sounded like a tornado kind of, but then I thought it was an earthquake."
Some parts of California have gotten up to eight inches of rain in one day.
A new daily rainfall record was set in San Francisco on Wednesday with just over two inches falling in the city.
