Flooding at VIZ Media

This past Monday, without notice, there was a storm that hit San Francisco. The weather was nice all morning, then around 2:00pm in the afternoon, it came out of nowhere. So much rain that it started to flood certain areas. Manholes started bursting with water because there was too much rain. I saw this footage from a local news station and notice the manhole was right down the street from VIZ Media (publishers of Dragonball, Pokemon, etc). I didn't think anything of it until I got an e-mail from VIZ today that the the building was closed all this week due to flooding.

If you watch the video, you'll see the red brick building down the block in the center of the video. That's the VIZ Media Building. The tan colored buildinhg on the right building belongs to the USPS. Just those two buildings on that one side of the block. I hope it didn't do much damage. If you walk in the first door at VIZ, right next to the USPS, it goes one level down. That would hold a lot of water. Man... all those comic books, ruined!!! Just wait for the commercial to end if it pops up. The local news station put that there and I can't get rid of it.
