Area storms wreak havoc
High winds and sheets of water created a host of problems in the Ceres area as storm blew in rain and yellow-cell trouble on Friday.

Winds reached as high as 55 mph resulted in numerous tree topplings and rains flooded a number of streets.

The most serious damage came at noon on Friday when a Chevy pickup spun off of rain-slickened Highway 99 and flipped into the oleanders that separate the northbound lanes from El Camino Avenue.

A combination of winds and soggy ground resulted in a tree crashing into a rooftop on Eighth Street in Keyes.

Approximately 1.7 inches of rain fell on Stanislaus County on Friday.

Rains are expected to continue pelting the area this week.
