Fires in Napa Valley, California are causing evacuations in nearby neighborhoods. Several tornados began funneling down from the clouds in Canada. The severe storms also produced hail and dangerous lightning. An overnight rain event in Amarillo, TX closes streets due to the intense flooding. A giant boulder falls on Pacific Coast Highway. No one was injured from the falling rock, but authorities closed part of the highway to remove the big mess.
