An assessment and cleanup of San Francisco’s federal parks will continue the next few days after this morning’s rainstorm, National Park Service officials said.
The storm knocked down trees and power lines and caused power outages and blocked some park areas, according to park service officials.
Some roads and parking lots at parks may be closed and park officials may set up detours in other park areas, park service officials said.
The officials are urging visitors to use caution as winds and high seas may cause more damage tonight and Monday morning.
Parts of a metal shipping container washed onshore this morning on Baker Beach closing the parking areas until officials can assess the debris, park service officials said.
The debris does not appear to contain hazardous material, according to park service officials.
The company that owns the shipping container is working with park service officials to remove it and the debris, park service officials said.
Golden Gate National Recreation Area officials, U.S. Park Police, San Francisco officials and the U.S. Coast Guard are working together on the assessment and cleanup, according to park service officials.
