WASHINGTON — A California restaurant is on the brink of collapse as it’s hit by multiple days of rain and torrential downpours, and the owner is trying to figure out what to do with all the food that’s been lost.
The Bison Café in Santa Cruz, a neighborhood on the coast, is closing its doors to patrons after being inundated with nearly 4 feet of rain since Friday, the Los Angeles Times reported on Monday.
The restaurant, located in the affluent neighborhood of Pacific Palisades, was shuttered by the owners in a bid to avoid flooding, said Bison Cafe owner Scott Wojciechowski.
Wojcykowski said the restaurant is closed to the public because it’s being inundate with so much rain, with more than 4 feet per day.
Wajcieczowski said he’s been dealing with the rain since he was forced to evacuate his home during Hurricane Florence in August.
The storm has been a boon for local businesses and has forced residents to spend more time outside than at home, Wojczowski told the Los Angelos Times.
