this area just south of lake isabella. this is the southern reach of the sierra, about 40 minutes -- 40 miles from bakersfield. so they are trying to keep this fire from advancing to further communities, but it looks like as many as 1500 homes are still in peril. south of isabella lake, so much devastation to the communities by the wildfire that's more than 25 hours has been racing eastward and it's still advancing. hundreds remain evacuated, scores of them now have no homes to return to. in mountain may tax ed evacuated his wife, then rode it out as the fire crested cook peak and roared into his valley. >> unbelievably fast. it came down that mountain and raced across this valley went right up the other side and just really -- if you didn't have -- you didn't have time to grab anything and throw anytime your car and go. >> reporter: he showed us video he recorded during the height of the fire last night. >> cook peak over here all on fire. all the crease and everything up

6:20 pm
will show it has grown by as much as one-third during the course of the day. no containment whatsoever. this fire is still very much out of control, though for now burning mostly in the back country. patrick healey, nbc bay area news. >> patrick, thank you very much. jeff rainieri is here. those images where patrick was reminds us painfully of what happened in middletown last year. you see the houses charred behind him. >> that area is not going to see any relief over the next ten days. temperatures 90s to near 100 degrees. it's going to be hot with low humidities. temperatures also increasing this weekend across the bay area. a few spots you'll be able to enjoy decent weather. this area of high pressure just offshore is getting stronger and it's moving more to the north. that's the main reason why the san francisco bay area here is going to heat up into this weekend. as we get a look at the morning forecast on saturday, we start with sunny skies in the south bay and 57 degrees. a little bit of patchy fog in the peninsula. and san francisco. and the east bay starts sunny and 58 degrees.
6:21 pm
through tomorrow's forecast temperatures do increase. in fact, we're going to reintroduce low 90s for the tri-valley with 92 for your average. san francisco also up to 71. and the north bay 92. down towards the south bay also increasing heat and 90 degrees. while it will be warm for the interior valleys, there will be a few spots you're going to be able to escape the heat. again that's going to be mainly here in san francisco with temperatures in the low 70s right through sunday's forecast. so sunny, warm, and hot for a lot of us throughout this weekend. the one spot you can avoid some of that heat will be the beaches, at least ocean beach and half moon bay on saturday will stay in the 60s. 64 specifically for ocean beach on your saturday, 65 half moon bay. santa cruz 77 degrees for to. maybe it's not the beach but it's san francisco. as we talked about some enjoyable weather. if you're heading out to the pride parade on sunday morning we'll have a little bit of fog early on and 60s.
6:22 pm
then by the afternoon sunny skies and 71. my full forecast coming up in about 25 minutes. we'll detail each and every one of the microclimates across the bay area. peggy and raj? >> jeff, thanks so much. coming up next we'll meet the bay area man who's making sure that more people in his native country won't be killed for who they love. also what went painfully wrong at a motivational event linked to a famous motivational speaker. stay with us. ==reveal==

6:29 pm
6:30 pm
6:31 pm
the brexit vote certainly overshadowed the initial reason that president obama was in the bay area today, the global innovation summit. the summit has been something the president is very passionate about. >> this year's theme of inclusive innovation could also be central to the brexit debate moving forward. nbc bay area's damian trujillo joins us tonight from the stanford campus. damian. >> reporter: the president uses the backdrop of this summit to push global exchange of ideas. and he says those ideas might start sometimes in silicon valley but it doesn't have to end here. memorial auditorium on the stanford campus was packed with investors and inventors. 700 entrepreneurs from 170 countries getting incredible access to some of silicon valley's most influential companies and investors. >> you look out across this auditorium, you're all from different backgrounds and cultures and races and religions. >> reporter: the president's
6:32 pm
central focus was diversity, a theme he repeated as he was joined by facebook founder mark zuckerberg. >> it's why dozens of top tech companies here are committing to make their technology workforces look like america, including publishing data on diversity every year and hiring people from all backgrounds. >> it's a chance to offer ideas. innovators also have a chance to win cash prizes and make deals with potential investors if the idea is bold enough. >> i had this idea of create a company that would change the world. >> we have a solution and we call it community solar. >> reporter: mr. obama urged attendees to make sure every stater has a chance, regardless of race or sex. even if their ideas rattle a few nerves. >> i believe we are better off in a world in which we are trading and networking and communicating and sharing ideas.
6:33 pm
but that also means that cultures are colliding, and sometimes it's disruptive. and people get worried. >> reporter: worry that is paled in comparison to the benefits of breaking new barriers. this marks the seventh global entrepreneurship summit for the president, and it is his last. we're on the stanford campus, i'm damian trujillo, nbc bay area news. >> damian, thank you very much. the president's visit largely dominated by britain's decision to leave the e.u. the so-called brexit did trigger a mass selloff on global markets. the dow dropped more than 600 points today, the largest single-day drop in ten months. france's finance minister also warned the decision could have grave economic consequences for all of europe amid reports of a pro european union. not all u.k. territories were in support of the brexit. scottish leaders warned that their country, which is under u.k. rule, was so angry about the decision that they're calling for a new vote to separate from great britain. political experts have noted
6:34 pm
that the brexit vote largely hinged on a single issue, anger over immigration. those polls show that the proposal would fail keeping britain in the e.u. now, in hindsight it is clear that those polls missed a key group of voters. some say it could happen here in terms of a win for donald trump in the upcoming u.s. election. nbc's lily tan reports now on how one surprise vote could trigger another. >> reporter: it seemed to be donald trump's way of saying, "i told you so." landing at his scottish golf resort the among after the yiekd voted to leave the european union. he was in favor of brexit. >> it's a great thing. >> reporter: the republican presidential candidate congratulated british voters and compared what's happening in the u.k. to sentiments in the u.s. >> i really do see a parallel between what's happening in the united states and what's happening here. people want to see borders. they don't necessarily want people pouring into their country that they don't know who they are and where they come from.
6:35 pm
they have no idea. >> donald trump is a fool. >> if i'm trump i'm dancing around the 18 holes on that golf course, happy with what britain did. why? what worked in the u.k. could work in the u.s. >> reporter: the hoover institution bill whalen says though trump's campaign has been in the rough, hillary clinton should be concerned. >> there is a sleeper vote that pollsters did not see or could not gauge. >> reporter: clinton released a statement on brexit saying "we respect the choice the people of the united kingdom have made. this time of uncertainty only underscores the need for calm, steady, experienced leadership in the white house "". >> what's going to happen this fall is president obama is going to say do not vote for donald trump. this is a reckless thing to do. >> reporter: british voters heard a similar message from their prime minister regarding the brexit and rejected it. whalen says that kind of political lightning could strike twice in one year. lily tan, nbc bay area news. >> and more now on the race for the white house, today senator bernie sanders says that he would vote for presumptive democratic nominee hillary
6:36 pm
clinton but he's just not quite ready to endorse her. the clinton campaign has quietly urged the senator to offer more support for mrs. clinton but sanders has held off, saying that he needs her to move closer to his positions on several key issues. >> we are going to be urging millions of people to get involved in the political process. >> sanders says he's do anything he can do to defeat donald trump, saying that a trump administration would be quote a disaster. from political drama to life and death and danger here. hundreds of thousands are dealing with historic flooding tonight. entire communities across west virginia have now been flooded out. and the situation could get even worse. here's nbc's jay gray with the latest. >> reporter: for the second straight day, parts of west virginia are under water, others completely wiped away. >> our biggest challenge continues to be high water. >> reporter: in some areas more than 9 inches of rain with nowhere to go.
6:37 pm
just like 500 or more in this shopping center, stranded when raging water tore apart a bridge, the only way in or out. at least 20 people are dead, including two young boys 4 and 8 years old, both swept away by the flood waters. >> being a small town might not know everybody's name. but you're still familiar with faces. and it hurts. >> reporter: entire neighborhoods have been swallowed by the swat. >> it was tragic. i just watched three houses go down the river, just floating right down and then crash. >> reporter: this house burning as it's pushed by the rapids. >> it's been a long 24 hours. and the next 24 hours may not be much easier. >> reporter: the governor has declared a state of emergency in more than 40 counties across the state. that number could rise along with the water. forecasters warn flooding will continue through the weekend. jay gray, nbc news. an update now from the
6:38 pm
orlando investigation. the feds say they have no solid evidence that the gunman was pursuing gay relationships. the fbi began investigating the possibility after several men reported that the gunman has reached out to them on gay dating apps and had frequented the nightclub where he ultimately killed 49 people. so far the fbi says it has not been able to corroborate those accounts. efforts to encourage bicycling to bart stations are now paying off. and might be working a little bit too well. bart directors say the number of people taking their bikes to train stations is up by about 4% since 2000. at that rate, 10% of bart riders will be bicycling to stations by 2022. that's certainly above bart's goal. there are some issues with this. the lockers for the bikes are very crowded. many riders say that the bike on bart system still doesn't work too well. they need more space. a painful end to a self-help seminar. how tony robbins' latest event left a lot of people physically

6:42 pm
california ravine, its operator crimson pipeline, revealed today that the leak was not detected earlier. that's because the line was down for maintenance. yesterday's spill was reported by a resident who smelled an odor coming from his backyard in ventura. authorities say it's lucky that ravine was dry and no water was flowing through it. that kept the oil from make it to the ocean. would you do it for tony robbins? feeling burned by something you've paid for a little bit unusual. that rarely comes though with a trip to the hospital. dozens of people burned their feet after walking on hot coals at a tony robbins motivational seminar in dallas. five people were rushed to the local hospital. emergency crews say they evaluated about 30 other people at the convention center. many were seen limping or being carried away. a representative for the tony robbins seminar said that he's been doing the coal walk for about 30 years, rarely sees injuries this severe. >> i wonder how they get people to do it. if you believe you can do it you

closer we're going to continue to see our temperatures warm up over the next three to four days. i'm sure you've seen is on the seven-day forecast for interior valleys we're jumping up into the 90s. with that said, fire danger going to be increasing. we still think the highest fire threat through this weekend will be across contra costa and alameda counties in the east bay, and it's not because winds are going to be extremely gusty. only 15 miles per hour out of the west. it's rather due to the hot air that's producing these low humidities. down to 18%. so everything from hiking to camping, even lighting up the barbecue, you just want to be extra cautious because it can only take one spark and things can go drastically wrong. as we head throughout your saturday forecast a look at the south bay. san jose 90 degrees and sunny skies up to 93 in morgan hill. for the peninsula, al low palo . pacifica 66. if you dip your toes in the water or anymore than that we

happening. this is an unmanned at lalas 5 launching from cape canaveral this morning hauling a satellite into space for the navy. back in march the rocket shut down a few seconds too soon while making a space station delivery. that led to the grounding of the entire fleet. scientists discovered an issue with the fuel valve. they fixed it. that cleared the way for today's launch. after a near perfect road trip, the giants are back home tonight ready to host the phillies in about 15 minutes. >> that's right. and the players are getting ready. so are the broadcasters. the youngest of that crew, dave fleming, has blossomed right before our eyes. let's bring in nbc bay area's colin resch. >> reporter: it's hard to believe dave fleming has been calling giants games for 12 seasons now. with a quick ascent to the bigs for fleming, but he definitely paid his dues along the way. >> my first game they flew me in for a weekend. i remember being nervous about it. john and duane and mike were all there. and i was like 25 years old. so i show up, and the piece of
6:54 pm
advice they gave me which i really thought was great was they said we have these stacks of notes and stats. they took all of it right in front of me and said see all this? they just threw it in the garbage. they said, don't worry. you don't have to sound smart. you don't have to sound like you know every bit of giants history. just watch the game, describe the game and the fans will like it. my second big league game was a no-hitter. so the second game i ever worked was kevin millwood for the phillies, no hit the giants, a little uptight the giants had the best record in the big leagues. i show up and they don't get a hit in the game. i didn't think i was going to get invited back. my favorite call is the final out of the 2012 world series. >> bottom of the tenth inning here in detroit. and the giants are three outs away not only from a win here in game four but from a world series victory over the tigers. it would be a sweep. >> it became kind of a famous story. three outs away from wing the world series. i turned to john and i said, john, you're the lead voice of the team. should you -- maybe you should

call the final out. maybe you should just do the play by play in the bottom of the tenth. and john said no. it's your inning, you do it. >> romo looking into the side from his catcher posey. 2-2 pitch on the way. cabrera takes strike three called and the giants have wouldn't world series in detroit! and the celebration begins as the giants mob the mound. cabrera strikes out to end it. >> so sergio romo strikes out miguel cabrera. there are not that many guys in history who called the final out of a world series and i'm one of them. >> not only have the giants won the world series, they have swept the tigers in four games! in dominant fashion! 12 seasons, three world series titles, and maybe a fourth this year. he might be more valuable than some of the players. in san francisco, colin resch, nbc bay area. >> okay, thank you, colin. finally tonight it's one of the biggest weekend of the year in wine country. jeff was talking about the
