11:02 am
at this point. we'll continue to see this off and on for the north bay and then more hit-or-miss showers across the bay area. as we get a closer look, it's pretty much covering a good chewing of marin conte and across the bay and over towards vallejo as well. we'll see the rain continuing for the fairfield area and also farther off towards the south where we've seen some pockets of heavier rain. it lasts with 20 or 30 minutes before they move on. as we head over towards the marsh creek area and parts of the delta, we're also seeing some of those showers moving through right now. as we go through the time line of what to expect today. at 3:00 a lot of the bay area will not be seeing a lot of this rain. but then we start to see it returning in the north bay with some heavier downpours and the rest of the bay area seeing it with around 9:00 or 10:00 tonight before we also get a little bit more clearing, a little bit of a break before another round of rain moves in, so this is going to be off and on, all going through early
11:03 am
tomorrow before we catch a break and this weather system gets out of here. we'll talk about how much more additional rain to expect, and i'll help you make some weekend plans with this forecast coming up into a few minutes. >> thanks, kari. the danger very we will, surge of rain, heavy wind and mud too much for folks in the hills. more now from in montclair where several families were evacuated. any idea when folks there might return? >> reporter: well, the fire department here in oakland and emergency officials are trying to assess chance answer to that question, sam, that you just put out there and a lot of residents are also thinking about that at this hour. especially residents up this street. a lot of residents are listening to what kari is talking about the weather pause when they hear more is coming rain-wise that's a concern. east bay mud has begun the cleanup. the rain fueling this landslide
11:04 am
that's threatened about four hopes. these are the first daytime pictures of some of the damage you're about to see right now. this as mud from the hill above has already almost covered one home. the ground very unstable and breaking apart and some residents say that they can hear their homes moving several families that remain evacuated. once again, they don't know how long that will be, this while neighbors left behind are concerned. >> i want to think it's the risk of living up here. trees come down and hillsides come down and the risk of fire. >> if that could be your house down there, what would you be thinking right now? >> i would be thinking it's time to evacuate which is what we did when they had the big fire up he here. >> reporter: so two things will be happening. at this point people will be listening to kari be a all the meteorologists to find out whether or not there's more rain coming down which could be a big concern about more land moving. number two, finding out how soon folks can go home.

11:10 am
and vladimir putin and iran and others have a very different cost benefit analysis. >> reporter: the white house says leaders from across the globe are applauding the action except for russia, an ally of syria, where officials have condemned the missile launch calling it ineffective and unnecessary. president trump will hear directly from chinese president xi jinping as the leaders continue their bilateral summit here today. >> reporter: and when the meeting ends this afternoon, president trump is expected to stay here in florida through the weekend. we're told he's in constant contact with both military and national security advisers as they continue to work this situation in syria. that's the latest live here in palm beach, florida. kris, back to you. >> thank you, jay. after saying good-bye to an old sinatra digs and abolishing the filibuster of supreme court nominees the senate moved ahead and confirmed neil gorsuch.

not surprisingly it was a close vote and almost entirely hey long party lines. >> the ayes are 54, the nays are 45. the nomination of neil m. gorsuch of colorado to be an associate justice of the supreme court of the united states is confirmed. >> all right. vice president mike pence presiding over the senate as the vote came in. 54-45 in favor of confirming gorsuch. a 49-year-old veteran jurist of the tenth circuit of appeals in denver whose rules according to legal experts put him closely in line philosophically with the man he's replacing, judge antolin scalia. he won support of all the republicans as well as three democrats and the outcome was a major win for the trump administration. all new at 11:00, pepsi's latest ad controversy has a connection to the bay area. it turns out that the logo of the san francisco police department showed up in a promotional campaign video
11:12 am
featuring kendall jenner. those commercials were pulled after many called them insensitive and tone deaf. pete suratos joins us live from san francisco. what is the department staying about this? >> reporter: good morning. i spoke with san francisco police not long ago, and they told me it was the own officers who noted the use of the sfpd badge in this controversial pepsi ad commercial. we'll show you a clip of the commercial that was getting a lot of attention even before this issue was reported. that badge was scene in the behind-the-scenes footage, not in the final cut that you're seeing here. tmz first reported that sfpd and the city attorney's office were looking into this matter to see if any legal lines were crossed by pepsi by using this and sfpd said they were aware of the matter and also had this to add.
11:13 am
>> it's just unfortunate, you know, that people feel disrespected due to whatever the images that they are seeing from the advertisement. >> clearly still a developing story here. now we did reach out to the city's attorney office for a comment. we've yet to hear back at this time. we're live in san francisco. pete suratos, nbc bay area news. >> thank you, pete. >> raging fire threatens san francisco homes and injured several people overnight. up next at 11:00, the fire fight that had the fire department rushing into action in the darkness of night. lousy unemployment numbers are actually even worse than we thought. we'll tell you why coming up in business and tech. baki ne --trainbro arstefordostt

11:15 am
we have some breaking news to tell you about right now. tremain brock, the cornerback for the san francisco 49ers, has been arrested for some sort of domestic incident. now, we don't have much information other than that. our robert honda just breaking this story moments ago on
11:16 am
twitter saying that sources tell him that santa clara police have arrested tremain brock for some sort of domestic incident. he's in custody at this moment. all we know is that there's no bail allowed in this case and this relates to something domestically. robert honda following up on this. as soon as we have more information, we'll bring it to you. a check right now of the stock markets, and the dow jones, the s&p 500, nasdaq all up in trading. the dow up 55 points so far at 20,718. >> on the big economic story today, far fewer jobs were created than expected. >> yes. >> definitely below what was forecast. scott mcgrew, you say the numbers are even worse than it looks? >> yeah. 98,000 jobs added in the month of march. now that's a bad number by itself, far below estimates, but it gets even worse when you consider it's not even enough to cover the number of 18-year-olds
11:17 am
who entered the official job force last month. in that sense it's actually a negative number. so we're looking at these numbers and looking at the numbers from the bureau of labor statistics trying to figure out why in the world estimates were so badly off. we were expecting something much better. now, unemployment is at 4.5%. that's super interesting because it's the lowest it's been in years, dropping a full .2 of a percent. we certainly do expect that's what the white house is going to concentrate on because the actual jobs number is awful. that's what white houses do, all white houses. they find a number that reflerkreflects the best news. mr. trump used to call the numbers fake and he didn't last month when the numbers were really, really good. we'll see what he does this month. back to you. >> all right. gas prices will spike in november because late last night the state assembly approved a
11:18 am
12-cent per gallon tax hike on what you pump. it is a big win for governor brown who has been pushing for the tax to fund major road repairs in the state. many republican leaders were against it saying that the taxpayers are already hit hard by taxes. now the fuel tax hike though will not take effect until november. >> right now new details on a story that we first brought you as live breaking news on "today in the bay." we now know what caused the fire that forced two dozen people out of their homes in san francisco. aview posted this video of flames to twitter at the height of the fire and broke out before 2:00 in the morning near the richmond intersection. you can hear the fire engines sounding in the background. it was a lit candle that set a blanket on fire. that's what caused the situation. from there the flames spread to a couple other buildings. the fire cruise ended up evacuating residents and this resident recalls the moment he and his neighborhood were rushed
11:19 am
out of the floor. >> 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 neighborhood is yelling about a fire and that's going to get people running. >> two people were injured. we're told not seriously. one fireman was also injured and was released from hospital in good condition. the giants are ready to move on after five long days in phoenix and a rocky start to the season. >> they added a few losses, unfortunately, to that column. all ending pretty dismally with a 9-3 less. jeff samardzija serving up that homer to jake lamb, the throw-run homer, they go down 9-3. the giants have lost three out of four games to the diamondbacks. they move ow none to the a dramps as for the giants home opener, that follows the weekend series against the padres. a live look at at&t park. at least they took the tarp off of the infield. you can be sure that at&t will
11:20 am
be packed and rocking come monday. >> hopefully it will be drier, too. don't forget, you can watch the home opener on nbc sports bay area, and there are a lot of festivities on tap. first pitch is 1:35 so get your work done early. >> and things start early that morning on "today in the bay," kris. leave reports coming from the ballpark and hopefully you're checking us out as you're getting ready. meteorologist kari hall will be there and we'll be headed to at&t park to give you the full breakdown ahead of the home opener. >> so excited. >> monday, by the way, one of the days that doesn't actually have rage in the forecast. >> yeah. we had a lot of rain here within the past 24 hours, especially for san francisco. they got the field covered out there and they will have to peel back that tarp and it will be nice as we head through the weekend into monday, but as of right now it is all gloomy. take a look at those tourists there on the side of the golden gate bridge. they are standing out there in the rain and it's been so windy,
11:21 am
but at least now these winds are starting to calm down. you can tell by the flag. it's not moving as much so they are on the side. i want to show you the time lapse at ocean beach. this is one of the areas where we're watching for the high waves and the risk of some rip currents throughout the morning. we can see the waves just rolling in along with the cloudy skies and some kinds of showers as we've gone through some waves of rain throughout the morning and the past let's say 12 of 13 hours around the bay area at least. as we get a look at the seven-day forecast at the bottom of the screen, you'll see that the rain will be tapering off tomorrow, all dry on sunday, but that's not the case right now. we're still tracking some rain moving across the bay area. it's been mainly across the north bay and over towards fairfield and then we've also had some pockets of some rain re-developing in parts of the east bay. as we get a look now at marin county that extends over towards the bay and then over towards vallejo as well, interstate 80 really wet at this point, and then we get a look at some heavier rain moving through just
11:22 am
east of oakland over towards murago, a pocket of rain moving into your direction and especially for clayton. expect the rain to pick up in the next few minutes. tracking rain offshore that will be moving into half moon bay. within the next 20 minutes also in san mateo and a little bit later. looking at the time line of the rain, more rain on the way today and still going to see breaks in between. by 8:30 tonight we start to see the rain getting heavier in the north bay, and then the rest of the bay area also getting in on some scattered showers late tonight and early tomorrow morning. we'll still have some spotty showers and it will be getting lighter and the wind will be calming down, too, another chance of rain in the forecast for the north bay on monday. a lot of people heading over to the sierra for the weekend and it is still really coming down. a few of our cameras there showing some snow still falling, and we're looking at additional snowfall totals on top of what we've already had, possibly close to two feet in spots like kingvale so really a beneficial
11:23 am
snow pack and more fresh powder for the sierra. i'll let you know what else is going on around the bay area. we'll take a look at the forecast here coming up in a few minutes. >> thanks, kari. >> testing your dna at home, sam. the bay area company that's making it easy for people to see if they might have a life-threatening disease or condition. >> first happening right now in washington, a federal aviation administration has restricted drone flights over 133 military facilities. the administration says it was responding to requests from the dod and other intelligence agencies to do that. and kentucky fried chicken will stop serving chickens raised on certain kinds of antibiotics. the fast food chain will work with farms to reach that goal by the end of next year. we'll be back with more news right after this. firoveigh he's looat at ey re di

they show us scars from broken bones and multiple surgeries and rehab for a back fracture n.piedmont it's not a matter if workers get hurt it's when and you're about to see why. piedmont's rolling hills and stately homes make it a desirable place to live, but a dangerous place to work if you're a garbage collector. >> up hills, down steep hills, upstairs and downstairs. >> reporter: in most cities trucks make pickups curbside but in pied mt. mont any workers can pay extra for workers to retrieve bins from their backyard forcing these guys to do all the heavy lifting. mark godfried works for richmond public services, part of republic services. >> a perfect example of what we're talking about. >> reporter: point out conditions. >> taking it upstairs as we follow the route from our undercover van. workers pull transport
11:33 am
containers up flights of staffs and lifting empty bins over and over and over. and head back downhill carrying full loads. with unlimited recycling and yard waste piedmont residents can have as many as they want and half of them have back-yard accounts compared to mill valley a city of the same size where it's 8% or berkeley where just 1% of homes signed up for backyard pickup. >> it's the constant, lift and twist, lift and twist. >> god freed says the lifting wore out his back. he's been off of work for five months and in physical therapy. >> i believe something came loose and is still popping and is very painful. >> joseph brown has had three shoulder surgeries. >> the schar from here to here. >> reporter: and paul fernandez has gone under the knife four times crushing bones in his hand when he tripped coming down the stairs with a bin. >> i can't throw a ball to my
11:34 am
grandchildren or pick them up. >> reporter: the worker says their policy has come to a price and 15 people have been injured on the job and we talk to six who said they needed rehab or surgery. >> we're never trained to lift anything. you just throw a guy out there. that's how you do it. we wing it had. brown raised concerns to it the company in 2010 our issues with the lack of training and consistency are being unheard. in 2012 he told osha employees are getting injured when they left and the company said workers are trained to request assistance or leave the cart if it's too heavy and noted manual lifting is covered in safety meet >> there's no right way to lift these toters. >> reporter: but god freed says the bins called toters aren't meant to live theed by hands. they are only supposed to be hooked up to trucks. >> do you think this is a problem the company wants to ignore? >> i believe it is. >> reporter: he filed his own complaint with osha and earlier
11:35 am
this year inspectors cited the company saying it did not provide effective training or correct unsafe conditions. we requested an interview with richmond sante try service and the company is appealing osha's decision and won't comment until the case is closed. >> reporter: did you have any idea that these workers were getting hurt on the job? >> none. >> reporter: not only the city manager was alerted and he's looking for ways to minimize workers' kovm concerns saying that bins should be carried easily and without excessive strain. >> that gives us the ability to hold their feet to the fire. >> reporter: what adjustments can the city make to the contract now to minimize injury for the next year and a half of this contract? >> that's a good question. i actually don't have an answer to it. we're in a contractual
11:36 am
relationship and it's up to the company to protect their workers and to run their operations. >> toters just jam full. >> reporter: morning gotfried hopes this will force them to take a closer look at safety and training. >> there should be one uniform way to do it, and if there's not, eliminate it. bring everything to the curb. >> reporter: the city administrator says that's not likely to happen, but he says in the future residents will be charged per bin which could cut down on the number of these toters workers have to lift. now, we should also point out we found a recent office of trash service in piedmont. it doesn't discuss safety but notes the company's collection methods are consistent with reasonable industry practice. guys. >> liz, thank you very much. if you have a tip for our investigative unit give us a call 888-996-tips. you can also always send us an e-mail to the unit at nbcbayarea.com. we now know why there was a police presence late last night

11:44 am
