when police came in to evacuate the school. now, that we are back out live now, again, still a very active scene. here is what we know about the suspect. his name is jesse engiant. we don't have a motive. police are still trying to find out why he opened fire in the neighborhood. we have information from sources saying that police responded to his house earlier this week. also, for threats that were made or the fact he had a gun. we don't have any information about his mental state. again, that is being looked at right now. we know he is a ucla graduate. he is the cofounder and a computer engineer at the place that he founded called oakland micro systems. that's all we know about at this time. we are trying to get more information about this suspect. we will have more at 5:00. i'm da lin, kpix5. new at noon, a man was found dead inside a car that plunged into the water at the

oakland airport off doolittle drive. to our storm watch now, a soggy friday around the bay area. we have live team coverage. sandra osborne is following rain in pacifica, maria medina in the south bay with anderson reservoir. but we start with roberta gonzales in the weather center. >> it has been pouring since this morning. the other side of the story is the gusty wind. the live radar, we are seeing the tail end of this system here. with these rain showers returning more over to a scattered nature during the afternoon. some pretty moderate to heavy rainfall in windsor. and berkeley. pretty good rain from walnut creek, san ramon area. down to 680 south as you head into san jose. willow glen. all the way into downtown san jose.
12:05 pm
including san pablo square. we have plenty of moderate to heavy rainfall. then we jump over the santa cruz mountains, an inch of rain has f fallen. we have two hour delays at sfo. san francisco, you are drying out. all this activity is lifting to the north, adjusting to the east. we do currently have winds that have gusted up to 86 just outside carmel valley. salinas, 71. check out los gatos and san jose at 56. oakland international airport, 52 miles per hour winds and it is still blowing. san jose, wind 46 miles an hour. pretty blustery afternoon in the making. what you need to know is that we still have the high wind advisory in openfect until 6:00 tonight. the rain, when it will finally end and how it will affect the commute. those details are coming up. i'm tracking the storm that will affect your holiday. a southeast reservoir was
12:06 pm
expected to cause flooding. maria medina is live at anderson reservoir where the situation is now changing. maria? >> reporter: it is changing, but right now, it is raining heavily here and pretty gusty so be careful if you are out in morgan hill. if the water goes over the spillway, it will be the first time that it is used in a decade. the incredible sight of water being released from anderson reservoir is attracting a lot of attention. but it also made some concerned. this amount of water meant the dam was nearing capacity. >> i can't believe it. >> reporter: after several weeks of rain, anderson reservoir is at 99% capacity. the water is just inches from the overflow spillway. yesterday, santa clara valley water district leaders say the next series of storms could cause it to spill over sending
12:07 pm
water into coyote creek and cause flooding. >> there are some low lying places in the flood zone. >> reporter: but today, they are breathing a sigh of relief. they say the rain is not as heavy as once predicted but they are not out of the woods just yet and they will keep a close eye on the water level. for george soria, this amount of rain brings back memories of when his town flooded decades ago. he is crossing his fingers that history doesn't repeat itself. >> the rain is good for everything. you know. so, it is good. but it is bad. when you get this much. [ laughter ] >> reporter: and here is the other concern. anderson reservoir is only supposed to be at 68% capacity. as i mentioned before, it is now at 99% capacity. and the reason for that is that experts a few years ago discovered that anderson reservoir would fail during a 7.25 magnitude earthquake.
12:08 pm
and water rushing into downtown morgan hill and san jose. so that is why they are releasing the water. but, they say it takes time for the water levels to drop. live in morgan hill, maria medina, kpix5. >> all right, maria. thank you. and now let's go to sandra osborne to show us the conditions in pacifica. sandra? >> reporter: hey there, we are finally getting a little break from the rain. that's nice. it is a little drizzly out. but you can see the ocean is definitely very churned up. we have had some waves strong enough to crash on the rocks below. and spray over the seawall. it is getting a little too close for comfort. but despite all the wind and rain, plenty of people are still outside enjoying their friday. >> i used to come here with my father when i was a little boy. [ laughter ] yeah! woo! nice! >> reporter: whether catching crab or riding the waves, it doesn't matter. >> the wave is just tear drops.
12:09 pm
>> reporter: pacific swells could reach between 13 and 15 feet with breakers higher. this area is used to being in the headlines after storms. several pacifica buildings have been demolished after erosion after near crumbling over a cliff. >> now, we have too much water. it is just like everyone is like, oh no, what are we going to do? they are worrying about the erosion and the landslides and everything like that. like, there is an issue in pacifica with the landslide on highway 1. >> reporter: while there is some fun to be had in the wet weather and the pier has remained open throughout the day, authorities are monitoring the eroding coastline and suggest people be extra cautious. along the coast, there is a high wind advisory in place until 6:00 this evening. you can tell by the state of my hair guys. but just a couple of things to watch out for with the wind advisory and the subsequent
12:10 pm
storm systems the next couple of days. we are talking about the possibility of downed trees, power lines, and of course, more of those mud slides. reporting live in pacifica, sandra osborne, kpix5. an update on the oroville dam where high water levels and damage to spillways triggered a massive evacuation earlier this week. state water officials have brought down the level of the reservoir by 40 feet and they say that is enough to handle a new series of storms. they have also slowed down the flow of water through the main spillway so that crews can remove debris. and repairs to the emergency spillway continue. switching gears now, the white house is denying a report that president trump is considering using the national guard to round up undocumented immigrants. the ap says that the secretary of homeland security put out a memo last month proposing mobilizing as many as 100,000 national guard troops in 11 states including some that are not on the mexican border. the white house press secretary said the ap report is 100% not
12:11 pm
true. sean spicer said on air force one quoted as irresponsible to be saying this. there is no effort at all to utilize the national guard to round up these illegal immigrants. charles schumer reacted to the initial report. >> that is despicable. that would be one of the most un-american things to happen in the last century. i hope it is not true. the fact it might even be considered is appalling. >> another democratic senator kamala harris of california called the idea deeply disturbing. he said in a statement such a employment would be an abuse of executive power and added i challenge democrats and republicans whether they are members of congress or governors to condemn this plan and ensure it never sees the light of day. still ahead, self- destructing messages sound like something from out of a spy movie. find out how secure messaging
