Spotted: Creek rising in backyard of Menlo Park home
We're still getting photos of the effects of last weekend's storm. Menlo Park Fire Protection Chief Harold Schapelhouman sent a number of photos to local news media, including InMenlo.
We think this one is most dramatic as it shows the backyard of a home on Alpine Road near Piers Lane and Happy Hollow Lane in Menlo Park where San Francisquito and Los Trancos creeks come together.
Email the Chief: "The Fire District’s Emergency Communications and Command Center (ECC) was opened from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm on Sunday due to high call volume and the need to prioritize incidents.Additional personnel were called into staff an response squad to patrol the creek and respond to flooding incidents."
