6:20 am
are likely underreported. some doctors tell "people" magazine they shied away from using cool sculpting. in some cases the fat does increase and the areas get lumpy or uneven. a rep from a casino mogul is disputing a report he would walk away from the deal. we told you yesterday about reuters that said a billionaire, sheldon adelson would say bye bye if they didn't want the deal. it came from tel-aviv. yesterday, his right hand man said it was taken out of context and everything is moving along. if you have been following along since 5:00 this morning, you probably know we have a major headache on the lower deck of the bay bridge. this has been a fluid situation. it has changed locations and the closures have changed. eastbound 80, originally we
6:21 am
heard about a jackknifed semi around treasure island. they moved it significantly to the san francisco side. all traffic is being diverted at 4th and back on at sterling. we saw from amy hollyfield, she's being diverted on to the surface streets. that is really a slow crawl. we have the rain and other folks trying to do the same thing. northbound 880, a crash past west grand. reports of a crash on the southbound side as well around 16th. you can use 580 to avoid that. a live look outside bay bridge toll plaza, the meters lights have been on for an hour. it is just a mess out there this morning. let's check in with meteorologist mike nicco. it looks like we have heavier stuff pushing in to the north bay. >> we do. i'm going to show some of the other bridges this morning. here is a look at the richmond san rafael. you can see a light, steady rain
6:22 am
there. .82 rain of the the last couple hours. yellows and oranges, moderate to heavy rain in francis drake and lucas valley. it's going to hit 101 and go up to petaluma, santa rosa and all neighborhoods up there. expect an increase and more ponding on 101 and secondary streets over the next hour or so. coming up from the south, look at that. more steady, light to moderate rain moving across the south bay. i'm breathing a sigh of relief while you deal with that. i kept promising you you were getting a good soaking. here is a look at the san mateo bridge where we had nearly .8 inch of rain. look how slow it is westbound right now. steady rain to steady showers today. scattered light showers tomorrow. steady rain and breezy sunday. i'm keeping the storm at a two on the impact scale. up to an inch possible. mountains more than an inch.

6:27 am
thanks for showing up. always by buy your tickets from a trusted site like ticketmaster or buying from craigslist is always a gamble. if the tickets are under priced, even just a little bit, they are probably a rip off of some sort. safe links you can use on our website, alicia, good question and enjoy the game. >> if you have a question for michael finney record it on your smartphone or tablet and use #askfinney. you might see your question answered like that on abc 7 mornings. coming up, a look at the damage of a plane carrying vice presidential candidate mike pence when it skidded off the runway in laguardia. >> more problems in laguardia. we have a major headache this morning on the bay bridge. the eastbound side.
6:28 am
if you are traveling, we have long delays there and we have a crew live on the scene. we can see the back was mr. bonejanglesny expecting the perfect toy at an amazing price? of course not. he's a dog. but that's the beauty of a store full of surprises. you never know what you're gonna find, but you know you're gonna love it.
6:29 am

east bay? the top story, a big rig making it tough for people to leave the city. >> we have team coverage starting the amy hollyfield. you are there on scene for us, amy. what's going on? >> reporter: hi, jessica, good morning. one lane of traffic is open. only one lane of cars eastbound from san francisco. if you need to get to the east bay -- probably good to show what people are seeing. >> reporter: you want to consider public transportation. we are dealing with a fuel spill up here, not only a jackknifed big rig, but we can smell fuel. we were advicedd vised of where we can stand because of fuel rolling downhill toward us. that is one more thing they are dealing with. they think all the lanes but one will be shut down for the next few hours. they are putting it at hours. they won't give a specific time,
6:32 am
they just don't know. i asked what happened. they said they are not sure at this point. rain may have been a factor. they are looking at the cause and what happened. the driver is okay, but was taken to the hospital as a preindication nar measure. they are going to check him out to make sure he doesn't have major injuries. 100 gallons of fuel were on board. one tank ruptured. at least 50 gallons of fuel spilled. they don't think the other tank was compromised. you have closures that we need to tell you ant. the onramp at 1st essex and 5th street are all closed. it's a struggle to get on to the bridg bridge it took us 15 minutes to get around the block. public transportation is an option you should consider if you can skip going to the east bay all together. live from the bay bridge, amy hollyfield, abc 7 news. >> amy, thank you. you can certainly see the huge
6:33 am
operation there trying to remove that truck. of course, alexis has been tracking this all morning for us. alexis? >> yeah. you heard amy mention the fuel spill involved as well. they were worried about that getting into the drainage system on the lower deck. fish and wildlife are going to have to come out. i don't think it is going to clear for hours. this has been fluid here. eastbound 80, at first, we had a crash reported with a jackknifed semi. treasure island, it has been shifted closer to san francisco now. as amy mentioned, you are diverted between 4th. you can get on 80 at sterling. this is a problem on a very wet morning. mike, you have been trying to show the other bridges. it is wet everywhere out there. srk it is wet. that is the key. we need to slow down and take caution. red hill boulevard, sir francis drake, the yellows, oranges, more moderate rain, the ponding

6:35 am
train going northbound to san francisco. they are avoiding the roads and traffic and crashes that could be out there, potentially on the road. of course you need to remember to bring your umbrella, bring your jacket and stay dry when using public transportation. what a mess it was overnight. getting wet isn't the worst thing that can happen to you. look at highway 87. chp says she was going too fast for the conditions. the car got squirrely. she overcorrected and ended on top of the wall that separates the highway and the vta crash. there's wa way to avoid doing this. >> slow down when it's raining. before you start driving, check your air pressure on your vehicles. low tire will cause it to hydroplane much, much quicker than it would a properly inflated tire. >> reporter: slow down. now, with more cars on the road for the morning commute, it's going to get ugly out there. it already is out there. if you have the choice of taking the train, it might be your best
6:36 am

6:37 am
you can see how much was pounding the pavement. many drives were taking it slow on the road. they like what they are seeing. >> very good. we need more rain. maybe it will help the drought. that would be great. >> reporter: you have your umbrella, too. >> that's right. we cannot wait for lake tahoe. we hope there is a lot of snow there. >> no flooding issues, but it was slick. bad weather is being blamed for a small plane forced to make an emergency landing in the east bay. check this out. the cessna landed at the alameda air station. it's no longer in operation. the good news is the pilot was the only one on the plane. he was not hurt. a crew removed the plane from the abandoned runway. we want to remind you to download the abc 7 news app. it is the best way to know what's going on where you live. i want to show you the home screen. it that has jackknifed big rig for you. we have push alerts on the
