The rain has also made for some difficult driving conditions today. A big rig went off Highway 99 in the Merced area around 9 a.m. Monday. CHP officers say it all started when the driver of a Mustang lost control while going too fast and hydroplaned. He hit one big rig and two cars. An SUV tried to avoid that wreckage and bumped into another big rig, which ended up in a ditch.

Authorities say despite all of the vehicles involved, no one was hurt.
