Did strong winds cause a couch to fly through the skies of San Francisco and nearly hit a pedestrian on the street far below? That's what a video posted to TikTok by user brandonau01 appears to show.

The Standard has reached out to the TikTok user for comment and to attempt to verify the video's veracity.

In the clip, the flying couch lands uncomfortably close to a pedestrian walking on the street.

Extremely strong winds and heavy rains swept through the Bay Area yesterday, wreaking havoc on San Francisco's streets, contributing to an incident on the Bay Bridge where a big rig truck flipped on its side and sent barges careening into Third Street Bridge near Oracle Park.

KRON reported that the video was filmed by a TikTok user named Brandon Au at Main and Folsom streets in San Francisco.
