game that wilson tries to kind of -- bruce is always so stoic in the dugout and wilson tried to get a reaction out of him but just getting ryan howard looking it was truly amazing. some of the players were sick to their stomach i think. >> of it tough to watch but we were so glad we came home with the win. kim coyle in philadelphia, thank you. you saw kim, they turned the lights out. philly fans not ready to celebrate but we are. national league champions. they have already got the t- shirts out and of course the baseball caps and as we showed you at the top of the newscast there it is. the san francisco chronicle "to the series." the cheers were deafening at bay area bars after the giants struck out philadelphia's last at bat. fans here chanting for juan who smacked that tie breaking home

but the weather clearly contributed to bringing down the rotting tree. and this was petaluma where a driver lost control of his car in slick conditions. it happened on a rural winding road. we don't know how the driver is doing but the wet roads likely contributed to the accident. our meteorologist lawrence karnow tracking the storm saying there is more to come. >> we will see the heaviest rain still to come here. we have got the main event setting itself up off the coastline. lighter amounts of rainfall. but you've got some pockets of moderate amounts of rain as you head up near santa rosa right now. headed in that direction also through gurnville. in around and the peninsula and more of that activity into the south bay. and that will be picking up throughout the night tonight and in towards tomorrow morning as we are seeing the heavier amounts of rainfall in the middle of the morning. heavy rain especially north of the golden gate bridge.
over the mountain tops we could see gusts 45 to 55 miles per hour. urban flooding. you bet. could see puddles developing on roadways. be careful. more on that coming up in a few minutes. back to you, ann. game 1 of the world series on wednesday. we will ask you about the forecast for then. >> sounds good. firefighters locked in a bitter battle in san jose over ballot measure v. v would end binding arbitration for union negotiations. today firefighters say a city councilman stole their signs. don knapp on the battle of words over the sign. >> reporter: this looks like it could be an embarrassing moment for san jose council member oliverio. he was pulling out campaign lawn signs. the very on v signs are his. the no on v signs belong to
firefighters who claim oliverio stole them. >> right here where those pole marks are is where he pulled them out. it was chalked full of signs in the back of his car. >> reporter: and this is what happened next. >> he was stuffing the sign in the back of his trunk. i rolled my window down and said, what are you doing? he saw me. we know each other. he jumped into his car and sped out of that parking lot. >> reporter: he says firefighters and volunteers drove to oliverio's home and waited for him. when he arrive and saw the firefighters he took off. >> he broke every speed law and speed land record you could see. >> did you try to catch him? >> one car lost him because they didn't. another car was able to keep up with him and he got out of his car and literally closed the door, locked it and ran away. >> reporter: but the council member tells a different story. >> well, the municipal code
allows for the city and/or volunteers to remove any illegal signage in public right- of-ways, public property, etcetera. >> reporter: he says he was just doing his civic duty. >> their signs are littered all over san jose in our traffic medians alongside expressway roads and even parks and they shouldn't be there. >> reporter: oliverio has a sign in his trunk for a congressional race which he claims was illegally place. a group trying to find out what sparked the fire at westfield galleria today. they are trying to recreate the situation that led to thursday's fire. investigators believe a backpack that may contain explosives was left somewhere on the second floor. >> reporter: the backpack will be part of the scene that is processed and they need to
determine the best way to approach that. the backpack has undergone a lot of -- through the fire, water damage and some crushing from the ceiling but it is still? play. >> he said he started the fire to get attention and said there were no explosions inside the backpack. a third of the small was destroyed and millions of dollars done in damage. no word on when the mall will reopen. even though mall employees are out of work plenty of job seekers could be hired for cleanup. they are filling out applications hoping to work for the construction company in charge of the cleanup. they are looking to hire more than 500 people. union workers join the call for justice. why they say the case for oscar grant touches home for them. how a neighborhood celebrated today.

that can equal the loss of a life. >> i think it is really important for the community to see each other coming together for a purpose. >> reporter: this rally comes less than two weeks before the sentencing of former b.a.r.t police officer johannes mehserle convicted in july of involuntary manslaughter for killing oscar grant at the fruitvale b.a.r.t station on new year's day 2009 a scene infamously captured on witness cell phone video. >> the closer we can get to sentencing the more stressful it becomes. but, yes, we are just leaning on the community. >> reporter: in the meantime, johannes mehserle's attorney is asking for a new trial citing a similar case in kentucky where the officer was not found criminally negligent. >> if he goes home on probation it would be a sad day not just for us as a family but for the system in itself when it comes to us understanding whether we have a right to justice. it would be a blatant slap in the space for the community and
in the world. >> reporter: in oakland, cbs5. in spite of a budget crunch a $25 million community center is now open in san jose. the seven treed neighborhood celebrated the facility's grand opening today. 33,000 square feet. you will finally a ballroom, a game room, a gym and eventually a library too. voters approved this a decade ago. we are talking weather but we are talking wednesday and thursday game 1 and 2 of the world series hosted here in san francisco. >> we have got storms still brewing out there. they could affect the games. we will talk more about that in a minute. we have got a pretty good storm system putting itself together. already seeing rain across the bay area as we take a live like over the bay right now and the showers continue to fall out there as we are continuing to see that system work its way in that direction. the heavier rainfall still to come from the system and we
picked upwards of 2 plus inches of rain in the north bay. high-def doppler radar showing you that activity right now. heavier amounts in parts of the north bay in towards santa rosa. pretty good cells around you here. lighter activity moving in along the peninsula, san francisco. south bay seeing scattered showers at this hour. most of that just light stuff. but i'll tell you what by tomorrow, middle of the morning things can get pretty hectic around the bay area. here it is. you've got some clouds already streaming across your skies. really, this stuff just out ahead of the main event. cold front still lagging on the backside here so it will be moving through and we are talking 2 to 3 inches of rain in parts of the north bay. inch, inch and a half in the east bay along the peninsula. santa cruz mountains still may be a good 1 to 1.5 inches of rainfall. have to watch for flooding.
rivers will stay in their banks. starting to drag to the south overnight tonight. rain and wind is going to be picking up in the morning hour. we will be hearing some of those winds howling around the bay area especially towards the coastline and over the mountain tops and that rain should get going. the main event still lingering to our north and here it comes. about 9, 10:00 p.m. things really expected to get going in parts of the north bay. some very heavy rainfall. then as we head towards the afternoon looks like it will sag further to the south but it starts to break up a little bit. you'll see pockets of heavy rainfall. heaviest will be north of the golden gate bridge. temperatures running in the 50s and 60s all around the bay area. cloudy skies. rainy day. good day to just kind of hang out and do not much. stay inside. enjoy. looks like rain will turn to showers by tomorrow evening and then by monday some partly cloudy skies and tuesday looking pretty good but you know what got that world series to worry about now and on wednesday it looks like a great
day for the game. looks like clear skies and some pretty comfortable temperatures too. but as we head in towards thursday changes are coming. storm brewing again and there is a chance we could see some showers by evening that could affect the game that will come up on that night. have to wait and see. keep our fingers crossed and hope it is dry. >> no kidding. all right, lawrence, thank you. >> you're welcome. as we showed you earlier tonight, giants are national league champions. kim coyle has even more from philadelphia. >> reporter: i'm kim coyle in philadelphia with the giants. highlights, reaction. all the celebration is coming up in sports. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
