6:03 pm
about eight hours took 27 this time. and they were still trying to get home when we spoke to them on facetime this morning. >> there is people. it's like that were just bundled up and just waiting inside the car, no food, no water. >> reporter: yesterday, the friends recorded this video on a cell phone when they were stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic on i-5 for hours without any idea of when the road would clear. chp forced them off the freeway because of closures. >> the only thing that was open was a 24-hour gas station and a motel which the owner kindly let us sleep in the lobby. >> reporter: meanwhile, a berkeley woman told us on the phone she and her boyfriend were heading north to mount shasta from the bay area when they got stuck on i-5 for more than 19 hours. >> we don't have any actual food. we don't have a huge supply of water. so i'm not really sure what is going to come out of this. >> reporter: if you're choosing
6:04 pm
to travel when the weather is bad, chp encourages you to make sure your car is in good condition, has a full tank of gas, lights that work and good tire pressure. also, keep those snacks handy and a phone charger with you so you have a way to call for help in an emergency, and a blanket as well, because you never know when that four-hour trip will turn into a 24-hour wait. reporting live in san jose, anoushah rasta, nbc bay area news. >> stressful for the families as well. thank you, anoushah. a lot of people trying to get to lake tahoe for the holiday, but it's a grind. sierra snow created problems along i-80 and highway 50. chain control still in effect. roadways are slow, and that's as low as placerville, also chains in effect. that means drivers have to slowly navigate those icy roads. take a look on the coast. 20-foot waves are pounding the shore in pacifica. beautiful but dangerous. the pier and beach boulevard are closed now because of these large swells. and beware, the waves routinely
6:05 pm

6:06 pm
homeowners are going to be relieved when they see the squad cars patrolling their neighborhoods. moments ago i spoke to a councilmember who said even though it's a holiday, lafayette police are working around the clock to see if there was a connection between last night's home invasion and the home invasion that happened on halloween night. but it doesn't take a detective to spot the similarities between these two cases. in both of these cases, they happened around dinnertime. in both of these attacks it involved a trio of thieves with a gun, and both of these terrifying incidents, the homeowners watched as their home was ransacked by thieves. >> you know, i thought this morning what would i do if this happened in my house. >> reporter: while families are focusing on what's going on in the kitchen this thanksgiving eve, greg wilson of lafayette is focusing on what's happening outside of his door. >> we have security people coming over to upgrade all of our cameras and our alarm system. >> reporter: last night around 7:30, police say three thugs with a gun spotted an open garage door and snuck into his
6:07 pm
neighbor's house on crestmont drive. >> it's upsetting that someone would break into a home, knowing that people were home. that's really, really upsetting versus not that it's ever good to have a break-in, but it's one thing when people break in when they think no one is home. it's another knowing people are home. >> reporter: the thieves used a pistol toe strong arm man living in the house. police say the criminals tied him up and another person who lived in the home. the two residents helplessly watched as the three robbers paced through the home and stole what they could get their hands on. >> i can only imagine what they must have gone through. >> reporter: authorities say after the three criminals took off, it took the two residents hours to break free and finally call 911. the two were treated at a local hospital for minor injuries. >>ea people. more or less kept to themselves. but very friendly neighbors. >> reporter: this comes on the heels of a halloween night home invasion about three miles away. police say a trio of thieves armed with a pistol stormed into a home, tied up two people inside the home and ransacked the house.
6:08 pm
>> it's obviously disconcerting. this is a very nice neighborhood. it's in a quiet neighborhood. >> and a spokesperson for the contra costa county sheriff's office says it's too soon to tell if the halloween night home invasion is linked to the one that happened last night. but either way, extra deputies will be patrolling the cities of orinda and lafayette starting today and until further notice. that's the latest here in lafayette. i'm melissa colorado, nbc bay area news. >> melissa, thank you. the search is on for a driver who hit and killed a man early this morning. it happened in san jose shortly after 4:00 a.m. sjpd got a call of man facedown on a curb at foxworthy avenue and rube beebe know drirubino d. investigators have no leads on the driver or what kind of car was involved in the crash. this is the 24th time this year that a car hit and killed a pedestrian in san jose. we have you surround. we have a search warrant for the
6:09 pm
residence. >> a police chopper, the s.w.a.t. team and a siren all the soundtrack that woke up a neighborhood in the east san jose foothills this morning. police blocked off the street near story road, and our camera caught one man getting arrested. police waited hours to get another suspect. now police are confirming that officers were serving a warrant, but they're not giving us any other details. well, be smart and park smart. that's the word from police in san francisco as this holiday shopping season kicks off. a car full of packages -- packages in the car there is the ultimate gift for thieves. christie smith joins us in san francisco. christie, some simple and effective reminders here. >> yeah, that's right. and san francisco police say this year they have had some success arresting people they believe are responsible for multiple car break-ins inhe pre places like this, where people shop over the holidays. perhaps even more. so but what they're really trying to do is remind people what they can do when they park
6:10 pm
and shop. in san francisco, cable car bells and early shopping are part of the holiday tradition for many. >> we got some very good deals, some early black friday shopping. >> reporter: this family came in from the el dorado hills and kept it simple. one parking lot, bags in hand and they only visited one area. >> we've heard about too many break-ins. >> we've arrested over 500 people this year who have been arrest order cited for car break-ins. >> reporter: police chief bill scott says the number of break-ins nudged down just slightly so far this year. and they will increase patrols where people shop this holiday season. >> we increase the deployment to union square every year, but this year we're going have more officers. >> reporter: but break-ins are still an epidemic in the city. today the chief joined an event urging people to support small businesses and to park smart, meaning don't leave things for thieves to take. >> if you put your bags in your trunk and you go back in and shop, consider moving your car.
6:11 pm
>> the best thing is don't have anything worth -- in plain sight. that's all. that's the first thing you do. >> reporter: still, you can usually find signs like this one around the city urging thieves not the break. in they've been hit multiple times. >> you don't come downtown in a car. you take an uber or bart. >> reporter: now they also suggest, and this is really important for people who are visiting, to keep their backpack, cameras, and even passports with them, and they also suggest that if you are parking, it might be a good idea to pick a lot that has attendants. reporting live in san francisco, christie smith, nbc bay area news. that is good advice. thank you, christie. up next, the power is back on, but the confusion remains. what caused the lights to go out at oakland international, and the steps travelers had to take to try to get their bags. and let it snow on this thanksgiving eve. this is not lake tahoe. this is the hills above san jose on mt. hamilton. families having some fun with the fresh powder.

rain on storm ranger, and the big chill for thanksgiving. look at this. by 10:00 p.m. tonight, 30s expected in the north bay. i'll show you how low it will go in about six minutes.
6:13 pm
6:14 pm
well, it took almost a full day, but oakland's airport is finally getting back to normal after a power outage triggered chaos and a lot of questions.
6:15 pm
today was about getting back the bags to their owners, and trying to figure out why the power went out. nbc bay area's scott budman joins us live from the airport. so people got their bags back, but do we know what happened? >> well, jessica, i'll tell you. a lot happened. last estimate about 1400 people were affected by the power outage here at the airport. but so far oakland officials say they don't know what caused the lights to go out. >> if you were affected by yesterday's power outage -- >> reporter: after last night's two-hour power outage -- >> it was a fiasco, i guess. >> reporter: passengers like renee souther took all day before finally catching up with their luggage. >> i was flying from portland night, and then got -- we were almost to oakland and got rerouted to sacramento, and then i got a ride from sacramento to pleasant hill. >> reporter: meanwhile, her bags like all the rest of these -- >> thank you. >> no problem.
6:16 pm
>> reporter: -- got sent here where they sat until this afternoon. >> yay we got it! she'll have clothes for thanksgiving. >> reporter: eventually, people were let behind the rope to look for their own bag and after lots of searching and patience -- >> i just grabbed a beer and waited. >> reporter: the right bags got back to the right owners. and the good news tonight, flights are back on schedule, but airport officials and pg&e officials say they are still forced to look into why the power went out in the first place. live in oakland airport, scott budman, nbc bay area news. >> what a hassle for those folks. thanks, scott. well, last night's rain left some lasting problems at concord sun valley mall. it's a big hole. we talked to someone who works in the mall. she said the hole had to be cut to make repairs and seal a leak inside the mall. you didn't have to travel to the sierra to find snow. always beautiful to see this in the bay area. plenty of snow on mt. hamilton
6:17 pm
in the south bay, and plenty of fun. it's also enough to raise concerns about safety. nbc bay area's robert handa had his snowshoes on and joins us on the base of mt. hamilton. robert? >> reporter: well, it was a one day. but as the snow picked up strength, it got a little more scary trying to get down from there. still, some people did get a chance to frolic in the snow. and for one youngster, it was the first time ever. >> you want to try it? one for you and one for you. >> reporter: peter didn't waste much time gathering his kids up to go the snow. he grew up in canada and, well, he doesn't see snow in the forecast in silicon valley very often. >> getting up to tahoe is extremely painful. tahoe is our c stelse, it's a le flight and this is really the closest place i can think of to experience it. it's lovely. >> ice. >> reporter: it would be tough to take snow for granted in the south bay. it doesn't happen that often. but you get a renewed feeling of
6:18 pm
appreciation when you see children playing in snow who have never done it before. >> first time ever seeing snow. and she is a natural. >> reporter: she doesn't seem to be bothered by it at all. >> not at all. not at all. >> reporter: but snow delivers challenges as well. workers had to pull this double-decker bus out of the snow. and the chp cautions drivers to be very careful in these slick or frozen conditions, especially on tight curves. he echos that warning, saying his main concern was getting up here safely. but he adds it was worth the trouble. >> we've always been looking forward to it. we see it in cartoons, and they're always asking what does it feel like. so really wanted them to experience it firsthand. >> reporter: well, ethan and haley certainly seemed to enjoy it, but they might be the last ones to do it for a while. it was snowing pretty heavily when we left there a little while ago, and it's basically a day to day decision on whether
6:19 pm
caltrans and the chp will open the road or not. live in san jose, robert handa, nbc bay area news. >> looks fun. thank you, robert. great news for skiers and snowboarders. the powder is piling up in lake tahoe. this is squaw valley in alpine meadows. a foot of snow has fallen at the base. 18 inches on the upper mountains. they expect another 6 to 12 inches by tomorrow morning that is nice to see all that snow. jeff ranieri joins us now. you are busy in the weather department. >> we've got it all nailed down for you. i think tomorrow, midday afternoon is a pretty good break into friday. if you want to get up to the sierra, and then we have another round of some heavier snow coming our way. as we bring you into our microclimate forecast tonight, we have storm ranger, our mobile doppler radar scanning, the only one in the bay area and just one of six in the country. it is mobile. so we're able to move it and get it closer to the ground so we can get a more accurate scan of what's happening. right now we do have a little bit of some of this rain popping
6:20 pm
up. we'll track to it the east bay, and some showers near hayward, moving off to the east to east pleasanton. by 6:53 tonight, that is really the wettest corridor through pleasanton and livermore. be careful if you're headed out to get last-minute groceries for thanksgiving. down here to the south bay, also have some showers that have been around sunnyvale and stanford. moving off to the east, continuing into milpitas by 6:54 tonight. so we have the rain lingering right now. i think we have a few spotty chances tomorrow. that's just about it. the larger story i want you to be ready for is the cold temperatures. we're down in the mid and upper 30s here for the north bay. check it out right here to santa rosa, 32. napa, 34. novato 37. 36 in san jose. 36 in morgan hill. even 41 in san mateo. we start off chilly, and temperatures, not going to warm up too much tomorrow. make sure you find the heavier jacket. only upper 40s and low 50s as we headou better weather to

6:22 pm
6:23 pm
6:24 pm
this is disappointing, especially during the holidays. thieves in san jose have made a mobile charity immobile. the casa de clara charity drive, this special trailer to provide a hot shower, toiletties and food to people living on the street that is until last week when the thieves stole the catalytic converter off the van, putting the brakes on the mobile shower unit. >> having access to shower, the number one thing is it helps
6:25 pm
people recognize then other dignity as a human being. but also, it's a crucial part of people's general well-being and their efforts to get back into permanent housing. >> replacing the part costs about 3,000 bucks, which is more than the van is worth, and about what it costs to run the program for two months. if you want to help them get back up and running, you can find a link right on our website. an update now from the climber who survived a stunning fall from el capitan over the weekend. climber emily harrington now says she is going to be okay. emily fell sunday while scaling a 3200 foot peek. she says she pin balled down the side of the mountain with her climb rope wrapped around her neck. today she says she feels a lot better. >> i actually feel better than i thought i would. i was in pain and i was scared, but i could feel my fingers and toes. so i kind of knew that things were not super, super, super serious. >> she is tough. now after her fall, harrington was rescued by free solo star
6:26 pm
al alex honld and other climbers. she says sees the accident as something to learn from. who does president trump know and who did he order to speak for him in the ukraine? plus, they're fishing for lightning in the east bay. the unusual fish drawing anglers to a lake near livermore. so that early retirement we planned. it's going ok? great. now i'm spending more time with the kids.

6:30 pm
cupertino by 6:54 tonight. definitely watch out for those slick roadways. now if you're heading to the airport to pick somebody up, do know we do have some airport delays in san francisco right now. in fact, those are the only delays due to weather running 60 minutes behind with wet runways. you might encounter some delays at sfo. what about what is ahead? check this out. we've got cold temperatures on thanksgiving. not only for the morning, but for the afternoon. jacket weather at this point staying over the next seven days as we are looking at an atmospheric river starting to shap will bring us some heavier rain and definitely travel delays. i'll show you when we could get over 2 inches of rainfall. that's coming up in about 25 minutes. >> okay. we'll see you then. thank you, jeff. it's going to be dicey. one of your best resources for the weather is our nbc bay area interactive radar. you can type in your zip code to see what's going on in your neighborhood. for a quick way to reach it, check out the qr code on the
6:31 pm
corner of your screen. if you go and point your iphone's camera at it, it will take you right to the radar on our website. we're going give you another chance to scan it a little later in the newscast. tonight, more revelations about pg&e. state regulators now say pg&e had a dozen safety violations that may have contributed to sparking that deadly wildfire last year in butte county. jaxon van derbeken dug through this new state report and found many of those violations are tied to shoddy inspections. >> reporter: we've told you how this fire started. a worn steel starting sparks that ignited the camp fire in butte county that killed 85 people. but state regulators issued this report today, which includes the fire easily could have been prevented if pg&e had only followed its own standard, which call for inspectors actually climbing towers to look for problems.
6:32 pm
when they climbed nearby towers after the camp fire, they found many corroded hooks and steel panels. and according to the report, the tower tied to the fire had more issues than just one bad hook. it had serious wear to the arms that hold up high voltage lines, wear that by pg&e's own policy should have triggered a detailed inspection. yet no one climbed that tower in the decade before the fire. so no one noticed that worn c-hook. in that report, regulators said its timely replacement could have prevented ignition of the camp fire. we also know why eight towers in that area passed inspections just weeks before the disaster, only to fail follow-up inspections after the fire. the first inspection used an old form that didn't require crews to check for damaged hardware on the tower. the follow-up inspections used the new form, which did. that's just one of a disease alleged violations detailed in the new report. regulators concluded all the
6:33 pm
checks to utility before the fire did significant wear on the tower. regulators found them ineffective. pg&e says it accepts the conclusion that its line was to blame for the fire and remains deeply sorry about the role our equipment played in this tragedy. the company says that going forward, it is focusing on helping and recovery, resolving claims, and reducing wildfire risk. jaxon van derbeken, nbc bay area news. a string of garage burglaries has neighbors miffed along the peninsula. they happened early sunday and monday morning in san mateo. this surveillance video captured of ot of one investigators say the thieves targeted three homes in and around the parkside neighborhood east of 101. in one of the case, the thieves were able to get into the garage after first breaking into the homeowners' car, which was parked in the driveway. in campbell, the search is on for some bike bandits. three suspects caught on

6:35 pm
from an atlanta hospital today. jimmy carter underwent surgery this month to release pressure on his brain. that pressure caused by internal bleeding after the 95-year-old had a couple of recent falls, including one that left him with a black eye. another led to a hip replacement operation. mr. carter will celebrate thanksgiving with his family at his home in plains, georgia. a tiny solution to a big problem. san jose mayor sam liccardo is out in the rain today building tiny homes for the homeless. part of a ongoing solution. this is the second site san jose will bill near the flea market. today the mayor and some volunteers from habitat for humanity made shelve, desk and beds for each home. >> we do try a lot of different solutions to combat the homelessness crisis. we know the status quo won't work, and we have to take risks says one of g to be able to the biggest challenges is finding sites to put the tiny
6:36 pm
homes. the hope is neighborhoods will welcome the homeless into their communities. on this thanksgiving eve, the busiest kitchen is likely at glide memorial church in san francisco. they've been working all day on two mega meals for thousands of people. volunteers and staff are busy slicing up hundreds of pounds of ham and turkey. even as they worked on tomorrow's thanksgiving feast, the dining room was already busy serving today's meals, serving the less 2,000 meals a day is a huge undertaking, but also a labor of love. >> you know, it feels fantastic to do our part and take care of the community that needs as much as they can. >> thanksgiving day will start with the morning celebration in the church sanctuary. then everyone will walk to the dining hall and give thanks over all that turkey and ham, and anyone is welcome. thanksgiving surprise for some bay area anglers. n new type of trout is now thanksgiving. every year, the east bay regional park plants over

6:48 pm
be careful if you're traveling over any of our pass levels. and in case for a pop-up snow shower. we are looking at these rain areas moving off by 7:26 tonight. another spot that has been at least slick the past couple of hours has been the 580 corridor from around hayward back into dublin and livermore. right now the wettest in dublin. we head through the next 25 minutes. as we move through tonight, we're seeing the spotty areas of rainfall in the forecast. that's just about it. nothing major when it comes to widespread rainfall. we'll see the same story as we move through tomorrow morning's forecast with the best chance of rain over the central valley and more snow for the sierra. i think the bigger thing as you wake up tomorrow morning, maybe you start to smell that food cooking, you want to head outside, get the heavier jacket ready to go. because as we push through tomorrow morning, numbers dropping all across the bay area. down here to the 30s. south bay at 37. some sweater weather here in the peninsula, 38 in the tri-valley
6:49 pm
at 34. east bay 36. san francisco usually doesn't get this cold, 39 degrees. and right up to the north bay, possibly some patchy frost and 32. we start off cold. we end the day cold. we don't have too many days like this, usually in november. kind of a nice treat for thanksgiving. i think mr. turkey up here feeling chilly on his dance. down here to the south bay, 53 in morgan hill. 48 in milpitas. 49 in los gatos. numbers are very similar across the bay area. upper 40s to low 50s here through the east bay, peninsula more of the same. san francisco, 47 along the embarcadero, and for the north bay, 49 in sonoma. 48 in napa. all good as we move through thanksgiving's forecast. clouds, sun and maybe a spotty shower. i want to bring your attention to what we're tracking ahead. this weekend is going change up again. wet weather moving in. what we're looking at is an atmospheric river. basically, a river of moisture that's going to be pointed right at the bay area. subtropical moisture that originates way out towards hawaii. so this lines up by saturday.
6:50 pm
watch the timeline up here as we hit sunday's forecast. it continues to point moisture right towards northern california. also into monday. so four-day rain totals may exceed 1 to 2 inches. we'll be closely monitoring that forecast right up until that event, and tracking it this weekend. 40 to 50s here in san francisco for those daytime highs. inland valleys once again don't get caught offguard by the chill tomorrow. only 49 for the high. morning lows in the 30s. heading up to the sierra? feast your eyes on this. so to speak, more snow saturday, sunday, monday, 1 to 3 feet. snow levels will be higher, around 5,000 to 6,000 feet. so sunday, that big travel day, it could be pretty treacherous. >> wow. >> that might stretch into monday if people are getting bumped from flights or maybe staying in tahoe. >> i do think so. i'm looking forward to your sweet potato. >> sweet potato puffs. we've got to get some of those. right now the 49ers are the
