Roof collapses at Big 5 in San Ramon in heavy rain

Mud slides onto I-580 in Oakland

Caltrans crews were out in force on Interstate Highway 580 near Highway 13 in Oakland, shoveling away mud, which has slid down the hillside.

Part of the roof collapsed at a Big 5 in San Ramon early Tuesday morning, and several other stores in the same strip mall were also red-tagged during the heavy rainfall.

San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District spokesman Ron Marley said that crews responded to the store at 3209 Crow Canyon Place just before 6 am after getting reports that the roof collapsed.

Rain pounded the Bay Area on Tuesday, and Marley said there was ponding on the roof caused by a buildup of leaves blocking the drainage system.

No one was inside the store at the time and there were no reported injuries.

However, the Big 5 and other surrounding stores in the strip mall were deemed off-limits due to safety reasons during the heavy rains, Marley said.

Inspectors would be coming out later in the day to further assess the structural integrity of the buildings.
