San Mateo County's alert system sent out a notification at 8 p.m. about a closure at El Camino Real and Murchison Drive in Burlingame due to flooding.

Detours around that closure include 31st Avenue or traveling into the city from Belmont, police said.

Standing high water on the southbound lanes of I-280 at Ocean Avenue led to the authorities closing that section for a short time. The roadway was reopened shortly before 10 p.m. Tuesday night.
