tesla's electric cars will have a higher ground clearance so they are less likely to hit debris and the car's warranty will coverage damage due to fire. since the incidents, the company's stock has taken a nosedive dropping 37% since its peak in september. cate caugiran, kpix 5. >> a third model s fire happened in mexico last month when a car crashed after a high- speed chase. in all the fires so far, the drivers have escaped without injury. happening today, dozens are expected to rally against san francisco police department after a video has surfaced sparking claims of excessive force by the police force. kpix 5's mark kelly is live in san francisco now and mark, a bicyclist says officer choked him after he was caught i will really riding his bike on a sidewalk. >> reporter: and frank, authorities have released williams from custody. but the family is still very upset about this and they are planning a rally today at 5:00 here in the mission in front of san francisco pd.

make an exception in this case." developing this morning, communities torn apart by this weekend's tornado outbreak are coming together to clean up their neighborhoods. more than 80 tornadoes hit the midwest on sunday. the storms killed at least 8 people, six in illinois and two in michigan. hundreds of homes have been destroyed. many of them in the town of washington, illinois. >> there's nothing here, unreal.

least one exit. we can see it on the maps. southbound not impacted but northbound is very slow going and that traffic alert obviously still in effect. westbound 580 also pretty slow- and-go heavy this morning out of tracy on 205 and continuing past north flynn where there was an accident there. it is on the right-hand shoulder. once you get past vasco, though, sky one flew over and says that everything is free and clear towards the dublin interchange. if you are heading towards the bay bridge toll plaza this is what it looks like. it is pretty stacked up behind the pay gates. not going to take long for traffic to back up into the macarthur maze if it isn't there already. about 20 minutes already to get you on to the bay bridge. you can see some slowing now on the deck itself heading towards treasure island. there was a four-car crash reported on the western span coming into san francisco approaching fremont street. nothing there though and chp says no lanes are blocked so whatever it was, it was cleared pretty quickly or the drivers just left the scene because obviously things look good

raining in your neighborhood just yet it likely will as we head through. let's time it out. showers early on this morning, then the bulk of the cold front drops further south in the middle of the day showers beginning to pick up along the peninsula and through the central bay and in the afternoon, for the commute, here this comes. looks like bringing the heavier amounts of rainfall toward the evening hours. so a very slick ride with those roadways. the oil is coming up off of the roads and probably making for a very slick commute. now, behind that we have some more scattered showers. and the possibility of some thunderstorms. around the state we are looking at showers continuing of course watch out for snow in the high country. numbers 50s and 60s around the bay area, the temperatures are going to stay cool the next couple of days and we have a chance of more rain maybe even a lingering shower into thursday. then by friday and saturday, we dry things out with some much warmer weather and by the way, sunrise time 6:55, sunset 4:56. but it's nice to see the rain finally returning to the bay area. >> i know. we were looking forward to it. >> we needed it. >> thanks, lawrence. 6:19 now. happening today, supervisors in san francisco will hold a

playing the utah jazz. steph curry a pass behind the back to klay thompson for the three. thompson had 17. the warriors made 12 threes in the game. rough moment in garbage time when marvin williams landed on curry's head reaching for a loose ball. curry left the game with a headache. but he said he should be fine. warriors win 98-87. the jazz have won one game all year. cam newton a panther trying up to set the bates down three about a minute to go. newton to the former 49 ted gi florida n shakes the defender and panthers lead on ted's touchdown. but! brady and the patriots marched down field three seconds to go. his pass is picked off. a flag goes out for pass interference. but it was picked up. take a look! gone from counsel ski was held in the end zone by luke. but the official decided it was not a penalty. game over. brady wants an answer. he doesn't get one. and the panthers win the football game. so for bag back-to-back days teams feel they got robbed but

he didn't obey, they made that arrest. as you can see in the video there, the arrest drew quite a crowd. bystanders even yelling at officers to let him go. in the end, officers made three additional arrests in addition to williams. a total of four. and two of those officers while making the arrests suffered none life-threatening injurieses. live in the mission, mark kelly, kpix 5. >> all right, mark thanks. the storm wears out, the mock turtleneck is here and so is the rain. >> it's that time of year finally seeing the storm clouds rolling into the bay area. the main focus so far has been north of the golden gate bridge. and it continues to be that way this morning. you can see some of the downpours happening there right now. in fact, let's take you in for a closer look. you can see that near vallejo to the north. strong storms making their way through to bring you plenty of rainfall and more on the way. in fact, it's likely to pick up toward the middle of the day and the afternoon. the main cold front still off
the coastline. and that not pushing onshore until later on so the main focus of the north bay early and then we'll see that start to shift. sfo delays being reported of an 1 hour 45 minutes-plus. so people will be late due to clouds. temperatures in the 50s. i think toward the afternoon, rain spreading to the south throughout the day. the temperatures are going to stay cool and numbers running well below average for this time of year but that's okay. about 60 degrees in san francisco. 63 in san jose. and a cool 58 and rain in santa rosa. all right. let's check your "kcbs traffic" with elizabeth. >> thanks, lawrence. it's taking a long time to clear out the traffic alert in milpitas. northbound 680 approaching montague expressway the off- ramp closed right lane of the freeway northbound also remains closed after a big rig slammed into the sound wall and it looks like the guardrail in that area. debris out there so sweeper crews are trying to clear up some of the mess.

[ crying ] >> because i couldn't have moved that concrete block myself. >> officials say a number of factors kept the casualties down including early warnings, accurate forecasts and the fact that storms happened during the
day when people were awake. well, some palo alto police officers will soon be equipped with videocameras mounted on their bodies. city council unanimously approved $350,000 last night for the cameras. the money will mostly pay to replace 18 cameras and police cruisers but also calls for cameras that nine motorcycle officers will actually wear. >> the goal of all of this is that it will allow us to have an independent accurate record of what happened and what our officers do. >> police department says those cameras will protect the officers from the public and vice versa. alcohol may have played a role in a traffic accident that caused a chemical spill in concord. it happened just after 8:00 last night at concord and john glenn drive near buchanan field. the chp says a ford taurus hit a pickup carrying swimming pool chemicals. the driver of the taurus and two of his passengers were taken to hospitals. he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.
