Rain slammed the Central Coast late Sunday and overnight Monday, causing mudslides, car crashes and flooded roads. Monday may see a few scattered showers, and there is a break in the rain Tuesday morning, according to PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey. But don’t expect it to last. Lindsey said another storm system is headed our way Tuesday evening.

Floodwaters from the creek undercut a segment of Santa Rosa Creek Road about five miles east of Cambria, sending most of the eastbound lane down into the creek Monday, January 9, 2017. Some of the damage to the road is near Coast Union High School
