Post Date:11/30/2018 3:30 PM

Sausalito's first rain and wind storm of the season on November 28 and 29 proved to be relatively uneventful. City staff and first responders were prepared for the worst, with up to 1.5 inches of rain and wind gusts approaching 44 mph in the forecast.

The Sausalito Police Department reports the following incidents from the storm:
  • High winds overnight knocked a large limb off of a tree on Marion Avenue and another on Santa Rosa Avenue. Both streets were cleared by crews from Southern Marin Fire and the City's Department of Public Works.
  • A branch broke off a tree on Princess Street on Thursday morning, causing minor damage to a parked car.
  • Three vessels outside of City waters on Richardson Bay broke free due to high winds during the storm. All three vessels were recovered by Parker Diving Service of Sausalito.
  • On Thursday morning, the U.S. Coast Guard responded to a report of two anchored vessels colliding with each other approximately 100 yards from the fuel dock at Clipper Yacht Harbor, in an area outside of City waters.
