We haven't ventured out but, as of 6am Saturday, we've had 5 inches in our patio in Greer Ranch.

About 6 inches of rain near Cal Oaks and Taragona for the storm total at noon Saturday in containers in my yard. Especially about 11 pm Friday there was an extra heavy downpour lasting 15 or 20 minutes at my location. The wind was also blowing hard with estimated 30 to 40 mph gusts. No wonder it was blowing over trees and breaking branches with the weight of rain combined with wind gusts.
