Rolando Ortigas Glorioso, 63, and Susana Glorioso, 62, killed after heavy flooding submerges their car at Hemlock Avenue and Hillcrest Boulevard in Millbrae, California
A spokesman for the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office said firefighters responded at about 5:45 a.m. to reports of flooding at Hemlock Ave. and E. Hillcrest Blvd. in Millbrae, where E. Hillcrest passes under Caltrain tracks.
Firefighters in Millbrae, just south of San Francisco, were able to rescue a driver who had climbed atop his vehicle at a flooded underpass. But they were not able to reach people in another car, said San Mateo County Sheriff’s Detective Javier Acosta.
Authorities additionally confirmed they were a married couple. The pair tragically died last Thursday in floodwaters during the storm that inundated the Bay Area with rain.
