SAN FRANCISCO— Strong winds in San Francisco on Tuesday led to trees falling to the ground, a big rig blowing over and airborne furniture crashing down on the sidewalk.
Video shared appears to show a large outdoor couch flying through the air and falling to the ground as a high-rise resident observes from his apartment. The video, filmed by Brandon Au at Main and Folsom streets, showed the couch eventually landing on the sidewalk.
“It almost hit that guy,” Au can be heard saying.

Tuesday’s storm blasted the San Francisco Bay Area with powerful gusts and downpours, pounded Sacramento with intense hail and triggered a rare tornado warning on the Southern California coast.
In downtown San Francisco, pieces of glass fell off a high-rise. The winds were so strong, a big rig overturned on the Bay Bridge, causing a huge traffic jam and massive delays.
