6:03 pm
installed on the foundation of this home, which burned in the glass fire. a lot of neighbors are hoping that vegetation growth over the past year up in the hills will stop any runoff come this weekend. we certainly hope so we're live in santa rosa tonight cornell barnard abc 7 news right cornell thank you and our live team storm watch coverage continues now in the east bay with a focus on another issue wet weather brings power outages abc 7 news reporter ryan. is in hayward and ryan pg&e says it will be all hands on deck during the storm. all hands on deck indeed especially for certain parts of the bay area like this street in hayward or power has been going out multiple times. just this week one business told me it's affecting how they operate and they're worried with the heaviest rain on the way. the power is just going to go out again. just a little surprising that you know a small amount of rain could knock the power out of you know an entire block of businesses if kristen toth could use one word to describe this
6:04 pm
week. she would choose frustrating. i really feel like something needs to be done in order to make sure that you know small businesses are protected from nonsense like drizzles of rain knocking our power out multiple times this week her business king. fitness has lost power the strange part. the fitness equipment store is in just a small area of hayward that deal with outages all week long. she says they have had to find different ways to serve their customers. we definitely lost customers. we had customers who just didn't want to wait and who according to pg&e the power outages this week came as a result of dirt on power lines with heavy rain expected this week. pg&e says crews will be working 24/7 to quickly address areas where power goes out. this is a major storm and we're going to be working around the clock until all customers are restored safely and as quickly as possible their facility in fremont is full of backup equipment. they say will be transported to areas potentially impacted by the storm when we need equipment to make repairs and restore first all of that equipment is
6:05 pm
right here at hand in the bay area, but toth says it's still strange a small amount of rain would lead to a power outage every stoplight was on i went to starbucks power was working fine. just a few blocks away from here and then i came down this street and and the power was out so it really didn't make sense to me that it was just isolated to one specific area. she hopes the worst is over, but with more rain on the way, they told me they are preparing for the worst if power is out. we're gonna have to just manually do things old school and just work around it and hope that our our customers can be patient. and the most frustrating part is how spotty it's been this week with the power outages. they would say they would have some moments where they would have. than others it would just go out again. and of course, they're very frustrated with having just to overcome so many hurdles just to keep their doors open. so they're worried for out next few days live in hayward ryan curry abc 7 news. alright ryan. thank you. now if you haven't already now is a good time to download our

really scary there today building a better bay area includes turning a focused lens on our climate and our environment and looking at solutions to protect and preserve our natural resources that we cherish managing. our water usage is an important part of that conversation. so when actor edward norton came to francisco today for the grand opening of anchor brewing companies water reuse project abc 7 news reporter lee and melendez wanted to learn more. this is not made with recycled water by the way, san francisco mayor london breed pointed out an important fact, none of the recycles water processed in these tanks will end up in the anchor beer. not a drop nada that recycled water will instead go to other practices use to make the beer bottle washings. clean in place of the tanks flushing floors a variety of any type of cleaning tasks can all be done with the process treated processed water. and a lot of our precious

resource any used water will now be collected and reused on site at the brewery the largest commercial water reuse project in san francisco. cambrian is the company behind the new project it industry is the second largest user of water globally. and we can have a significant impact. said anchor brewery should be an example to other big companies residential use of water is not where the problem is. is in the massive waste in industrial use of water not a residential problem because the average san francisco uses about 42 gallons of water per day the average american according to the epa the environmental protection agency uses 82 gallons, which is one of the lowest anywhere we believe in
6:18 pm
conservation. anchor brewery is expected to recycle up to 20 million gallons of water a year in san francisco. lyanne melendez abc 7 news. due to the major storms moving through this weekend man at the mountain is planning to open two weeks early. this is a look at the powder today. from mammoth mountains main lodge webcam and a facebook post management says they're expecting feet of snow by early next week and have already had crews at work making snow opening day is now october 29th or seems i'm like it happened overnight, you know all the time flip to switch and here we are spencer. yeah, they won't have to make any more snow there in the next couple of days. the real stuff is coming the natural stuff. here's a look at our radar satellite image showing you that although conditions are calm here in the bay area. how you can see that atmospheric river we've been talking about with lots of storm activity moving in our direction and it'll be here soon enough right now though. we're just looking at increasingly cloudy skies in this view from emeryville. looking towards san francisco where it is 59 degrees right now we have low.
6:19 pm
at oakland mountain view, san jose and morgan hill 57 at half moon bay. here's a viewer at the golden gate where it's getting cloudier in the clouds are getting darker and lower looking northward is 59 degrees right now at santa rosa in about 60 to 62 degrees at novato napa fairfield conquered in livermore a fairly fairly uniform range of temperatures in the view from mount tam shows a variety of views of the sky. at high clouds middle-level clouds low clouds and little flashes of clearing along the way but that clearing won't be around very long. these are our forecast features light rain and showers will arrive late tomorrow then the strong storm arrives overnight into sunday continues through sunday into early monday, maybe even beyond early monday. it's going to be rainy and windy on sunday and monday monday so we've got quite a storm coming. way it ranks three a strong storm on the abc 7 storm impact scale. we can expect heavy rainfall periods of downpours gusty winds gusting over 30 35 miles per hour localized flooding is likely and debris flows in the burn scar areas are very likely
6:20 pm
as well. looking out for flash flooding in those areas. here's the forecast animation starting at 6 o'clock tomorrow morning at which point it'll be cloudy, but we expect it to be dry at that point but later in the day, we'll see areas of light rain and showers swinging through the bay area and then rna incomes that stronger storm and you can see with these vivid colors of orange and red where the heaviest downpours are likely to be a six o'clock sunday morning and that there's going to be a steady flow of heavy downpours through the day into the evening overnight and into early monday before the storm starts to wind down a bit rainfall potential from this storm ranges widely from about two and a half inches of rain in areas that are not quite so hard hit to six or seven inches of rain. places near santa rosa and calistoga in northern sonoma and napa county. so this is going to be a real soaker over in the sierra. we talked about snow winter storm watching the effect from 11pm sunday to 5 am tuesday above 5,000 feet above 6,000 feet. actually. we expect 8 to 48 inches of snow from this storm on the sierra and obviously travel conditions will be nearly impossible.
6:21 pm
overnight under cloudy skies low temperatures mainly in the low to mid-50s highest tomorrow as the rain approaches will range from about 60 at the coast to mainly mid-60s right around the bayshore line to upper 60s inland. it's unlikely anyone will 70 degrees tomorrow or the next couple days for that matter. here's the accuweather 7-day forecast level three storm on sunday on monday as the storm winds down. the storm itself won't be quite so intense, but the impact from what has led up to monday is enough that we're ranking it to on monday tapering off to a level one storm on tuesday, which a scattered showers brighter skies on wednesday and finally drying out and warming up at the end of next week. we will certainly welcome that by the time that arrives danny will welcome the rain. welcome to sun. yes. thank you spencer very much. first of its kind statue being unveiled in oakland this weekend. we get an exclusive preview of the black panther tribute from
