Winds Blow Stadium Portable Toilets as 49ers Take on Colts Amid 'Bomb Cyclone'

A powerful atmospheric river and “bomb cyclone” drenched Northern California on October 24, with the National Weather Service issuing flood warnings.

The downpour broke the one-day rainfall record for downtown San Francisco, while also making it the area’s second-wettest October on record. Some rainfall totals passed the one-foot mark.

The bad weather did not, however, stop the meeting of the 49ers and the Colts at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara.

Video by Daniel Murphy gave a good indication of the tough conditions players faced, as he captured some portable toilets being blown across a parking lot in the strong winds. “Might wanna hold it until you get inside,” he joked on Twitter.

In the end, the Colts weathered the storm better than their hosts, emerging from the deluge 30-18 winners. Credit: Daniel Murphy via Storyful
