Torrents of rain gushed down the street even after rescuers finished evacuating residents more than seven hours later. The series of storms has also added 39 billion gallons of water to Lake Tahoe since Jan. 1. Crater Lake National Park in Oregon closed Tuesday and into Wednesday with more than 8 feet of snow on the ground. "In all my years, it's so rare to have too much snow," said Dan Lavely, who moved to Lake Tahoe in 1968 and now lives in Reno. Some 50 homes were affected in Hollister, about 95 miles south of San Francisco, said O'Neill, the emergency services manager.
