6:00 am
i'm sam brock. >> no doubt. i'm laura garcia-cannon. before we get to our microclimate weather alert, we're following breaking news out of san francisco where several people are hurt after a house fire in the richmond district. these are live pictures from the scene. we have been out there since very early this mrning. the fire started just before 2:00 this morning in a three-story house on 23rd avenue. these are new photos of the fire that were actually posted by the san francisco fire department on twitter. today in the bay's pete suratos is at the scene talking with fire investigators. he'll update us on the situation and the people injured all in a live report at 6:30. as we have been talking about, we are in a microclimate weather alert as we track very windy conditions, blustery situation. this is a live look at the doppler radar tracking the storm. >> a major problem spot this morning, the oakland hills. live pictures to show you here. some of the road closures in place right now because of a landslide. several homes have been
6:01 am
evacuated. this is happening near banning drive today in the bay's rick moon monitoring the situation. he's talking to crews trying to prevent further damage. he'll join us with a live report at 6:30. >> in the meantime, we like to check in with kari hall tracking the timing of this storm. and when is it going to start to die down a bit? >> we will start to see a lot of rain tapering off right now as we speak. we're not seeing the heavy rain we had last night. the wind warning has expired but it is still breezy out there, and we're getting a look at what it looks like as you step out the door at 6:01 in the south bay. you can see the raindrops on the camera lens. the peninsula, the roads are still wet, and in the tri-valley, we have cloudy skies with light coming down. looking at san francisco, still windy. 56 degrees. in the north bay, you can see the clouds with some spotty rain. also as we go throughout the day, going to see cloudy skies and a bit of a break here. the winds will continue to die down. the showers still exed at times,
6:02 am
but there will also be some sunshine coming through. looking at the radar now, seeing that rain still offshore that will be moving into the north bay, and for parts of the south bay, you're seeing some of the showers there. but for the most part, not seeing the heavy rain that we had last night. we will have a little break before the second round of heavy rain moves in this evening. we'll talk at the timeline and a look at the futurecast in seven minutes. heading to mike now, checking on some slowing in the south bay. >> some slowing. a pretty light traffic all around the bay, but the conditions, kari, we have wed rote ways all around the bay and gusty winds. be careful for your early commute. there's the slowing, the only real slowing for the bay besides the bay bridge toll plaza where the metering lights are on in san jose, and the wet reds. let's show you the picture close up. the water on the lends and kicking up on the roadways. that water will be a factor and
6:03 am
you'll need to use the windshield wipers from time to time. friday morning is lighter traffic. we'll talk about the latest for the b.a.r.t. delays coming up. >> thank you very much. 6:03.tens of thousands of people waking up without power after the intense winds we have all been talking about. they knocked down power lines across the bay area. >> kris sanchez joining us live from pg&e's material distribution center in fremont. they made some progress since last night. crews heading out right now as we speak to repair storm damage? >> yeah, we're inside the yard right now where all of this work is under way. wearing safety glasses, of course. this is a very highly active spot. i got permission to take them off to read the script. we want to show wru what's happening here. one of the crew members loading up the transformers and wires that are going to deploy, not only around the bay area but beyond. there's a base camp in scott's valley as well.
6:04 am
waw we hear about the trancer fires once in a while when the rains come, that's what we're talking about, what delivers power to your home and brings it to a manageable level so you home can handle it. this is new video of crews working elsewhere. these crews were in los altos where a tree came down on power lines. power lines about four miles away as well. at one point overnight, 167,000 customers were without power. bay area wide. the numbers are improving because the crews are headed out to fix the problems. right now, we stand at about 46,000 customers around the bay area. the brunt of the storm has really affected consumers and customers in the east bay there. about 39,000 customers in the dark in the east bay. about 3400 in the south bay. about 2,000 in the north bay. about 1200 in the peninsula. and about 300 customers now in
6:05 am
san francisco. and crews here are working hard to get all of this equipment back out onto the roadways so they can fix the power situations. but if you're watching us now this morning, you want to make sure you charge your electronics, your tablets, your kindle, your smartphone so you have access to information should you lose power because this wind event is going to continue. we're going to poke around here on the yard, but we're also going to go inside for one of the safety meetings and see what's happening there. we'll bring you new video at 6:55. in fremont, kris sanchez, today in the bay. >> thanks for the latest. put those glasses back on. if you need to report a power outage in your neighborhood, head to pg&, click on the outages tab and click on the report and view electronic outages. then you can enter the address of the outage. >> we're talking about strong winds and downed trees. you can track the storm anytime and anywhere with the free nbc bay area mobile app. you can access our live doppler
6:06 am
radar and get updates when rain is within 30 minutes of your location. >> at 6:05, following breaking international news kwep developing by the minutes. russian president vladimir putin is criticizing the united states launching dozens of missiles at a syrian air field. >> scott mcgrew is live in the newsroom to bring us up to speed on the many overnight developments. scott. >> good morning to you. new video into our newsroom from the ground from the target itself. the first video comes to us from the russian military. remember, they're on the ground in western syria. this is the chief of the directorate of media services, the press secretary for the defense ministry. he says he's got russian drone video of the actual base. let's show it to you. definitely a version told to us from a russian point view. as we get his words translated and you saw some of those attacks there, not much damage. but again, that's from the russian point of view. now, you're seeing syrian
6:07 am
television, clearly shot on a cell phone. during the night, as the attack took place. and you see some of the explosions in the distance. i also have video for you from syrian television during the day. this seems to be more professionally shot. i want to point out on all of these situations, we cannot absolutely say these are true shots. but they look right. you see the frighter planes. the syrian tv crew not getting close to the base itself, and i'm not sure i blame them as the russians do bomb damage assessment and we detect that maybe not all of the targets were hit. we may very well strike it again. we'll continue to watch what's going on here in the newsroom. we have access to all kinds of video. we will bring it to you the minute we get it. back to you. >> thank you very much. ing by the minute there. >> 6:07 right now. new this morning, still trying
6:08 am
to figure out why there was a lot of police activity along railroad tracks in san jose last night. reports of a large police presence near the tracks over highway 87. not clear why they were there, but we have calls in to police to find out what happened. also new this morning, we mentioned it's been a busy overnight. oakland firefighters watching for hot spots right now after a building fire. you can see what they were dealing with at the height of this fire. massive flames engulfing a building off walnut street in oektland. firefighters say that was wind drivp. >> want to get back to the microclimate weather alert this friday morning to get a live look outside, showing the stormy conditions over downtown. >> i think we can say that phrase will be used again here in the days to come. meteorologist kari hall is tracking the timing of your storm. >> good morning. we're looking at these very wet road conditions. look at this camera in san jose. you can barely see anything. that's what your windshield will
6:09 am
look like. make sure they're working well. you'll see the water being kicked up from the cars in front of you, and scattered showers moving 33 as we speak. this is a large storm system. you can see the pressure well to the north of us and more moisture feeding into the bay area. we have had more breaks. as we go through the day, we'll still see breaks in the rain and scattered activity and winds calming down as well. some of the heavier rain will return this afternoon into the evening. look at 9:30, pretty much all of the bay area covered with a pocket of heavy rain. put that in your friday night plan. heading into the weekend, i'll help you make plans as we see this rain taper off. we head over to mike. >> the rain doesn't just fall on the roadways. if falls all over the place, including on the tracks. b.a.r.t. often has to ease on their start and stop. we have to watch for traction issues. might cause minor delays system wide. b.a.r.t. has given the typical
6:10 am
notice. vallejo ferry replaced by bus. they're doing maintenance. the traffic is lighter this week. because of the tri-valley schools on vacation. and lighter traffic all around the bay. look at this great flow right here, all over wherever you're going. the drive time getting to the bay bridge, no problem. still just 17 minutes from highway 4 all the way down to the bay bridge. the toll plaza has a backup, but let me show you the emeryville camera. the wind may be a factor. shaking the camera, and it may move your car around. be careful of all those. back to you. >> a warning right now for b.a.r.t. riders in three minutes. the b.a.r.t. station closure that's going to have a big impact on folks heading to tomorrow's warriors game. (kad bs)
6:11 am
6:12 am
6:13 am
it is 6:13. it's friday. we're making plans for the weekend. as you get ready to head out, the roads are still wet. here's a live look outside at palo alto. as you drive during that slippery morning drive, we still have some gusty winds and some cloudy skies. our average high, 68 degrees. will stay in the mid 60s today. and looking at some more rain this evening. i'll let you know when exactly that rain moves in at 6:19. >> and we have an update from b.a.r.t. in the last couple minutes. minor delays only for the east bay lines. again, this is because of the wet tracks. the weather conditions even
6:14 am
causing the rails to slow a bit. >> mike, kari, thank you very much. coming up on 6:14 on your friday morning. bad news for b.a.r.t. riders, at least in the short term. the lake merritt b.a.r.t. station will be closed for the weekend after the end of service today. they'll repair tracks through sunday, but there is going to be a bus bridge to take passengers around the closure but b.a.r.t. want to warn you it could add between 10 and 25 minutes to your trip. that could cause some problems for people heading to the warrior games for tomorrow night at oracle arena. the return of kevin durant there. the ws are hosting the pelicans. tip-off is 7:30. >> facebook wants to use artificial intelligence to improve your private messages. its messenger app will use a.i. to suggest things to users based on their conversations. the feech can suggest you book an uber or send money to a friend based on whatever you're talking about. >> not artificial, but real jobs numbers this morning and they're
6:15 am
startling about the state of the american economy. far fewer jobs created in march than expected. >> scott mcgrew, you say the number is worse than it looks. >> 98,000 jobs added in the month of march. a bad number by itself, far below estimates, but it gets worse when you consider it's not even enough to cover the number of 18-year-olds who entered the official market last month. in that sense, today's number is actually a negative number. now, we're crunching those numbers. poring over the report from the bureau of labor statistics to try to figure otwhat the estimates were so badly off. we were expecting something much better than that. unployment at 4.5%. i'll get to that in a minute. investors will hate this news. the only silver lining maybe is the fed holds off on another rate hike because of this poor showing. for the strike on syria, word to the wise. the maker of the tomahawk cruise
6:16 am
missile. the unemployment rate, lowest since 2007, dropping a full two tenths of a percent. we expect that's what the white house will concentrate on because the actual jobs number is just awful. then, that's what white houses do. they find the number that reflects the best news they find. trump used to call all of these numbers fake, of course. he didn't last month. the numbers were really solid last month, and spicer and trump, spicer a little early, tweeted this is the greatest thing ever. make america great. i don't think they'll have that today. white house has a lot on its plate. >> no kidding. a busy friday. >> we'll find out. thank you, scott. >> 6:16. back to our weather alert over the bay area this morning. taking a live look outside from our palo alto camera. wet conditions continue on the roadways out there. >> we have been looking at, laura, in sped up time. a time lapse to show you from the s.a.p. center as you can see the camera shaking around.
6:17 am
this is what was going on overnight. the palm trees going from side to side with all heavy wind and rain coming in overnight. things starting to calm down now this morning. >> on and off now today? >> yeah, the rain will be. can you believe the winds last night? we had sustained winds and some gusts at 40 to 60 miles per hour. so that's why as you head out this morning there's just branches and trees down all over the place. and it's still wet as we get a live look outside at san jose. can't show this shot enough because it really tells the picture. it's still very wet out there around the bay area, and it's 55 degrees right now in san jose. the high today, 64. and the seven-day forecast is coming up at the bottom of the screen, starting out in san francisco. rain today and part of the day tomorrow. so we'll talk about that. as the rain tapers off, we will have cloudy skies and breezy winds. picking up from the gusty winds yesterday. this afternoon, more scattered showers moving in. and a few heavy downpours likely
6:18 am
as you head out for dinner late this evening. for the weekend, spotty rain early tomorrow, but then we're looking at late day clearing and dry on sunday. here's that storm system, a very large storm system. still drawing in some moisture off the pacific with some scattered showers this morning. not everyone is seeing the rain right now. in fact, this is a little bit of a break. but where we do still see the showers and most of sonoma county moving through santa rosa right now, and then we're also seeing spotty showers across parts of the east bay and the south bay. a little bit of a break once again. cloudy skies. a look at the timeline. 2:30 this afternoon, the rain starts to roll back into the north bay. and some pockets of heavy rain. the rest of the bay area seeing it as you head out for friday night, going out to the clubs, the movies, dinner, we'll see the rain moving in once again. it will be pouring until about midnight, and then we start to see the rain tapering off. early tomorrow morning, another round of rain. but this one doesn't look as
6:19 am
heavy. but still kind of putting a damper on those saturday plans. especially early in it day. cool and breezy late day on saturday and then monday the north bay may see another round of rain during the morning while the rest of the bay area stays dry. you're getting the picture here. we're not done with the rain. more downpours expected for the middle of next week. as your weekend plans take you over towards the sierra or if they do, we're looking at chain controls required in parts of the interstate 80 and 50 as well. and look at how much additional snow we could see this weekend. if you can make it there, it's going to be amazing. there could be another two feet of snow in the sierra for those higher elevations above 5,000 feet. looking at the forecast here in, 62 degrees. showers today. early tomorrow, showers. and dry on sunday. monday also looking dry as we head back to work. and for the middle of next week, we'll being more rain.
6:20 am
and mike has weather delays on b.a.r.t. >> even b.a.r.t. gets affected by the weather. the tracks need starting and stopping so they'll often slow the trains down a bit. east bay lines only effected right now between south hayward and the warm springs station. you may minor delays. this is residual from the heavier rain earlier and also the vallejo to san francisco ferry is not running. the substitute would be the bus service. that is not weather related. they're doing maintenance on the ferry boats. meanwhile, the rest of the bay shows smooth traffic. standing water reported in many spots, but no full closures of any ramps or freeways. much better news than we often see in inclement weather. the north baysa a lot of rain earlier, also sees it now, and wind, that's the advisory for folks through the area. this looks great getting to the bay bridge where the metering lights are on. some folks have to make this choice. what is their route? waze will help you. our partners at waze show you
6:21 am
over toward the bay bridge, a 54-minute drive. folks can make that drive and longer so consider yourself lucky if you have a shorter commute. we have all separate waze all within ten minutes. and you can make your choice with waze by going and joining our team. choose to join us, going to the magnifying glass, clicking on that, then your name, then teams. our team of choice, nbc bay area wazers. and we can help each other as we do every morning join that growing community, guys, and we'll help each other throughout the rough times or sunny weather. >> thanks a lot. >> hopefully more of the latter. >> coming up next, continuing coverage of the storm activity sweeping through the region. >> taking a live look at the doppler radar. we're tracking the latest storm to hit the bay area. a lot of green out there. when will it turn spotty in your neck of the woods. closing cases and putting money back in people's pockets. i'm chris chmura. a recap of one great week when nbc bay area responds next. vec hadrin io arowofeop

6:29 am
right now at 6:30, we're following two major breaking news stories at home this morning. on the left side of the screen is a live look at the scene of what was an early morning house fire in san francisco. at that yellow victorian right there in the middle, but it spread to two other homes. on the right side of the screen, we're live in the oakland hills where a landslide has forced evacuations and is threatening several homes. >> in the meantime, we'reulse in a microclimate weather alert this morning with heavy rain and strong winds slamming the bay area for the morning commute. this is a live look at our doppler radar.
6:30 am
thank you joining us. i'm laura garcia-cannon. >> i'm sam brock. we're glad you're with us. many folks are not because they don't have power. all the heavy winds creating a lot of outages. >> that's why it's sorimportant to have the nbc bay area app. you can follow right along our your smartphone. you can zoom in to the radar and see exactly where it's raining. and any alerts that we're sending out right to your smartphone. so as we get a look out there at that big storm that's really been rocking the bay area for the past 12 to 13 hours, we are starting to see the winds calming down and some more breaks in the rain, as you head out, still a wet morning commute. especially for the north bay. the rain will being for marin county and sonoma county. you haven't seen much of a break there. expect more of those showers and a heavier dose of rain as we go into this afternoon. as we get a closer look, seeing the wet roads and also gusty winds continuing this morning. although the high wind warning
6:31 am
has expired. we'll take a closer look at this radar. you can follow right along on the radar on the nbc bay area app. i'll have another look at the forecast i'm getting you ready for the weekend. that's coming up in seven minutes. mike is tracking the slippery conditions. they need to slow down, right? >> that's right. even though the roadways look clear, they're also wet. that's an issue for stopping that car or starting coming off a dead stop at the lights. we're looking at a smooth flow of traffic. the south bay shows only the slowing we see here, the only slowing we see, i should say, off the 280 and 680 interchange. no incidents reported, but definitely ponding and puddling reported. be careful at the off and on ramps. a note from b.a.r.t. b.a.r.t. has had to slow, because of the wet rails often cause an issue for starting and stopping. maybe some minor delays in the east bay lines. nothing major. that's good news. back to you. >> thank you very much. it's 6:31 right now.
6:32 am
we continue to monitor breaking news in san francisco. this morning, two people are in critical condition after this early morning house fire in the city's richmond district. very active scene there. pete joins us live along 23rd avenue with more on what happened. good morning, pete. >> reporter: good morning to you, laura. that fire was contained a couple hours ago, and fire crews for the most part have cleared out. but we do know as far as the injuries go, that there were three injured. only two sent to a hospital. one was a 53-year-old man with burn injuries. the other was a 73-year-old man with a separate medical issue. i want to on the shot and show you where the fire originated. we're showing you video of the fire, but it started in a victorian home right here on the 400 block of 23rd avenue in the rooftop area, and there were ten people inside of that home when this fire took place around 1:45 a.m. we had a chance to speak to a person who was inside the home
6:33 am
you were looking at now. here's what he had to say as he escaped the fire. >> yeah, so i opened the door and i saw our upstairs neighbor out there. and i could hear people coming down from the second floor. because, you know, our neighbor was yelling about a fire. that's going to get people running. >> definitely a close call. and this fire originally in the home affected adjacent units. 25 people were displaced. american red cross were on the scene, but they left not too long ago. we see that fire crews are still here. they're going to stay here to monitor any hot spots in the home. we'll send it back to you in the newsroom. >> thank you. >> we're also following breaking news out of the east bay this morning as well. several homes are threatened and people have been evacuated from a neighborhood in oakland hills after a land slide. >> this is hanning in the 6700 block of banning drive. crews will be back out as it starts to get light to try to
6:34 am
evaluate the situation. >> rick boone has been tying to get as close as he can to the scene safely. do you have any updates for us? >> i can tell you it's becoming daylight, so the crews should be showing up soon. that's one update. the reason, a downed power line right over our shoulder. this is off, but that's fueling the slide that's making this all very dangerous. a slide that is threatening four homes below aiken drive. mud from the hill above is almost already curved one home and on the ground, very unstable. breaking apart above the slide on aiken and on down the hill. some residents can actually hear their homes moving. some families have been evacuated. streets around oakland hills remain closed this morning as this slide all began last night. the rain has been coming down kind of light. at least that's the good news. still, this ground very unstable. we just saw a just over the hill, kind of a hard to see with the dim lights.
6:35 am
hopefully in had next hour or so, i'll get you better pictures. you can see it was covered by a tarp. those crews on the way. that's the latest from oakland hills. rick boone for today in the bay. >> thank you. 6:35. more breaking news developing by the minute. syria and its ally russia this morning are condemning the u.s. missile striem strike against the syrian air base. this is new video from syrian television showing ground images of both the missile strikes and the aftermath. syria says at least seven people died. now, we're hearing reports up to 13 people died. nbc has yet to confirm that. russian officials say so far, they do not know of any injuries or deaths among russians. but we doknow the u.s. gave russia advanced warning about had strikes which was in retaliation for a deadly chemical attack earlier this week. >> 6:35 on your friday. a follow-up now. it is official. tiffany li, the woman accused of orchestrating the murd of her ex-boyfriend is out of jail after posting a record-setting
6:36 am
bail in san mateo county. we first brought you the story yesterday on today in the bay. li's bail is broken down between $4 million in cash and more than $60 million in property bonds. prosecutors fought her bail saying it's likely li will run to china where she has a wealthy family waiting for her. >> 6:36. questions surrounding a grisly discovery. a murder suspect in is custody. a dismembered body was found in a home near skyline college. investigators are collecting evidence at two homes. officers made the discovery while looking into a missing persons report, but they won't say who is missing. people living nearby are worried it's one of their neighbors. >> to wake up and hear that there's a dismembered body, it just really messes with you. the man who lived across the street over here, that's who i don't know where he is. like i haven't seen in over a week. >> police have arrested david stubblefield, who owns a house on the street. he's charged with murder.
6:37 am
>> back right now to our microclimate weather alert and wind is the culprit for most of the damage in the bay area right now. there's a tree that came crashing down on a home in benicia. the homeowner had to be rushed to the hospital after the tree fell. also problems in walnut creek where power lines fell on a road. a tree branch crashed onto a moving car. we're told the driver is okay some people didn't know what to expect with this storm. but many were prepared. >> we need it. and we in an area where we saw the lake come all the way up to the water and we just want more water. >> i have my canned goods, my can opener, my water. i just don't have my kayak. >> she had a good attitude. >> seriously. cadillac. so we saw all the trees falling down. pg&e crews dealing with tens of thousands of power outages across the bay area. >> gusty winds top bay bridge,
6:38 am
blocking all westbound lanes at one point. oakland fire department tweeted out the picture of the scene. this happened about 9:00 last night. lanes did open about midnight. >> all things moving right now, but we take a look at the toll plaza, and moving is a relative term. it's a friday, mike. we do expect that kind of backup. what are you seeing out there? >> seeing a lighter backup, comparatively lighter, and traffic is moving well, but the gusty conditions, we watch for, expect that. light traffic will keep things moving well. over toward the bay brimg, still 20 minutes. that's a light, easy drive. we'll stick with maps and show you how things look around the bay. no major issues. slowing north 101 and north 280 coming off where they split in san jose. that's the only color change we saw aside from a little change across the san mateo bridge as well. in dublin, a crash, but noer concern as far as the drive
6:39 am
times. it looks like the crash is out of lanes, and only 24 minutes out of the altamont pass. back to you. >> cue thebusic, because it's friday. we made it. but we are tracking some rain heading in for the weekend. >> i like your attitude. kari hall joining us. we're excited for the weekend, and yes, it's. >> for part of the weekend. not the whole weekend. i'm going to help you out. as we look at the timeline for the valleys and inland areas of when the rain will be getting out of here, we will still have showers during the morning and at least through 3:00. and the rain ending from north to south. look at how cold it will be tomorrow. only seeing highs in the upper 50s, low 60s. on sunday, that's your day to get out there. nothing but sunshine all day long. a clear sunrise, but it will be cooler thannal, and temperatures reaching into the low 60s. if you do plan to head to santa cruz, i'll let you know when the rain ends. at 10:00 in the morning, we do still see scattered showers.
6:40 am
