Water apparently seeped through roof tiles and soaked up the attic – causing the ceiling to collapse.

Firefighters say one person was injured in the accident.

Heavy and hail moved through the San Joaquin Valley over the weekend.

The Red Cross stepped in and is helping those 50 people find a place to stay tonight.
