welcome back. it's 7 shh. bart riders may have won more new rule when it comes to riding bart trains. transit leaders will consider fining people who take up more than one seat. janine de la vega to talk to us about the proposal and what people have to say about it. >> reporter: yeah, one rider was mentioning to us about the rule, how you're not supposed to eat while you're riding on the trains. in the 20 years he has been riding bart, he has never seen somebody get in trouble for it.
he is unsure if this new rule is effective. the bart board of directors is going to be considering this new proposal to prevent riders from hogging seats. ridership keeps increasing, but the number of trains remain static. when someone places their bags and personal items in an empty seat or takes up two seats because they are sleeping, it's a problem. under the new rule, the first violation would be $100. the second would be $200. and then it goes up to $500 after that. some riders told us they like the idea because they don't like to be confrontational. listen to what some of the riders said. >> basically, the guy threatened me not to sit down. >> reporter: what did he say? >> pretty much it. my seat. don't sit. it was one where they face each other, across from each other. >> i have seen people feel like if they say something to someone else, they will be, you know, cursed out or something to be
said to them that's inappropriate. >> reporter: bart authorities reportedly say this proposal is not intended to harass homeless people. it's just intended to free up seats and make room for those with disabilities or for people who are just standing in crowded trains. a bart director told "the chronicle" if it's enforced unequal against the homeless, they will reassess the rule. a vote still needs to be taken on a later date. back to you. >> thank you, janine. >> we were talking about do you confront the person taking up too much space? alex savidge, i think these days i'm not confrontational because i don't know what the other person has or what they are thinking. >> yeah. you never know these days. and i'm with you. i don't think you take any chances these days. you hear too many bad things happening, you know. you never know how somebody is going to react in that situation. >> yeah. >> always, you know, maybe there is a polite way do it. i know some folks will do that.
if you are not hopping on a bart train and you are hopping in the car in stead you have a good looking commute in front of you. normal backup at the bay bridge toll plaza. it's going to be a wait. you are backed up through the maze this morning. this is nothing out of the ordinary, especially if you make the trip from the east bay into the city every morning. nothing unusual here. we will show you the south bay and here is one of our cameras that shows you 280 in san jose and you can see it's beginning to bog down just a bit there in that area coming up into the downtown area. so keep that in mind as you head out the door this morning. let me take you to the maps. i will show you the big picture of the south bay along with 280 being a bit slow. highway 101 northbound is also slowing as well. a few other pockets you see there on your map. if you are going to make the drive up the peninsula here through san mateo and up into the city, that's a really good looking ride. it's going to slow down in the

mendocino county. heavy rain into lake county as well. you can see that line. it barely has moved. in the last few frames it's trying. the line is petaluma right now. flash flood watches are out. you can imagine why. maybe that helps out parts of the russian river. that goes into monday, by the way, because there is a lot of moisture that has to work through. right now we are getting the warm sector. 60s for some of the temps. 50s for others. it's a mild, muggy pattern, especially if you don't have the rain. the rain will eventually get here. look at this moisture. it's going to take a while, but it's on its way. tomorrow a rain day for everybody. rain to the north. slowly dropping south. might be light rain in advance of it, but the main band is to the north. 60s, low-mid to upper 60s and a few low 70s. san jose might have to wait to this evening to get the heavier rain. all right, alex. we are thankful that the rain is not moved into the immediate bay area. we would have a real mess on our hands. >> we would have a big-time

guerneville. the creeks are rising. 2 plus inches of rain since 3 a.m. when it started. that's old school rain, guerneville, cazadero. that's what happens when you get a lot of rain after a wet pattern. robin in napa. got the dog walked as the light rain started. redwood road, hasn't started up in earnest yet. it's close. it's biontsville. there is your line right there. let's see where the heaviest is. parts of marin county. and then just stretch it right through parts of marin county. right by petaluma yet you go dugout south and there is not a lot there. glen ellyn as well. probably not sonoma yet. just north, that's the dividing line right there. so highway 29, yountville, up to st. helena, san lorenzo it's raining. raining big time in parts of lake county. the line is ever so slowly moving, and that's the problem. it's going to continue to stay
in the north bay. it will take its time getting south. eventually it will. but there is going to be 4-inch amounts to the north, mendocino county, lake county. rain slowly moves south. if you don't have any rain, you are probably not going to see much, if at all. a teeny bit sneaking in. it's still has a ways to go. 50s and 60s. 62 already in san jose. the breeze will be a factor. deep moisture out here moving so slowly it's going to give some heavy rain. others not much until tonight into tomorrow. muggy south bay. low 70s in the mix. it's going to be a rain day for most of the north bay. all right. alex, 8:03. i didn't updates there? is. >> a lot of rainfall in the north bay. boy oh boy. we are looking pretty good aside from the rain falling from in the north bay. the rest of the bay area has been pretty problem-free on the roads this morning. that's the good news. the normal slow spots that you
would expect. crash-wise, we are doing good today. there is our emeryville camera showing you the macarthur maze in oakland. you will experience slow traffic towards the toll plaza. you are going to be quite backed up there. and 80 itself heading towards the maze also slow from about richmond or so this morning. let me show you the scene on 880 past the coliseum north. that is slowing down. on the maps you can see the east bay situation. the traffic on 880 northbound slows back to 238 or so. keep that in mind as you head out the door. and the situation in the south bay, we had a crash that appears to me that is cleared and chp is taking care of the situation on highway 85 near almaden expressway. that's the good news in san jose. highway 101 headed northbound you can see right there through thearea of san jose or near the downtown area is slowing quite
a bit this morning. no crashes reported in the south bay. 8:04. over to you. >> thank you. new this morning a huge tree has foul fallen down in sunol in the east bay. it's blocking an east bay road as we speak. a viewer named allison campbell sent us these purse. says this huge tree fell about 4:30 this morning on kill care road. came real close to her neighbor's deck. she says that tree is so big, fire crews couldn't clear it. alameda county has taken over getting it out of there. our viewers say 30 homes are cut off in that neighborhood while they wait for the tree to be removed. well, as you heard, and as we have shown you, it's raining hard this morning in parts of the north bay. this heavy rain in sonoma county near the russian river. >> we move to allie rasmus where there is a flood advisory that runs through sunday. allie, you found the rain? >> reporter: we did. we are off highway 101 railroad
avenue between pen grove and katie. i wouldn't describe it as a downpour, but it's a consistent steady rain in the north bay. at times heavy enough to get you soaked. this is what i'm experiencing now. look that creek over there. don't know the name of it. the water is flowing well. there is a flash flood watch in effect for the entire north bay through the weekend. expect more rain like this and heavier as we head into the weekend. let's show you what it looked like on the drive over here. we were in san alnselmo this morning. there was no rain there. we went north on highway 101. when we got petaluma we started to see the raindrops. and then it's heavier north. doesn't look like a downpour, but just this relentless consistent steady rain out here. now, i did talk with the russian river fire protection district. they said further up north in guerneville they are very concerned about the russian
river and what the water levels will do there come saturday. this morning, captain ryan lance said they are not concerned about flooding happening today or tomorrow. he said at last check the russian river was 14 to 16 feet. it doesn't research flood stage until 32 feet. it is forecast to reach that level by saturday. but again even though we are seeing a lot of consistent steady rain out here, it looks impressive, you know. i am completely soaked. but they are not expecting the russian river to be a problem until saturday. he did say, however, the captain with the russian river fire protection district, they are talking about adding extra staffing for saturday in case there is flooding out there. right now out here off of highway 101 between pen grove and katatie steady rain. enough to get you wet. no torrential downpour. >> allie, were you and your photographer going about freeway speed? what was it like? you showed us when you were driving. is everybody slowing down?
what's that situation like? >> reporter: the roads weren't very crowded because we were going counter commute direction. of course, there was a lot of space on the roadways. but people seem to be driving pretty well. there was no -- nothing out of the ordinary that we noticed. >> thank you. a pretty big tree fell on a car last night in emeryville. a tree crashed on top of that mini cooper after 8:00 at 43rd veet. it shattered the windshield. it blocked part of the street as well. no reports of any injuries here. a busy exit on southbound 101 in san francisco is back open. the chp tweeted this picture anderson varejao small sinkhole on the caesar chavez off-ramp. this happened 8:00 last night. no word what caused the pavement to collapse but crews repaired the damage overnight. on days like this take us with you when you have to leave the house because we have you
covered through the ktvu weather app. use it to get live radar, forecast and warnings any time you want whenever you need them. it's free for smartphones. time is 8:08. tonight the republican presidential candidates are going to debate in the very important state of florida ahead of next tuesday's primary. >> last night we saw the democrats take the stage. ross polumbo, the only political reporter here in the bay area to be at last night's debate. he is still in miami this morning. i see full sun on your face, ross. tell us about the situation there. >> reporter: good morning, gasia and dave. and good morning from a very windy miami this morning. you know, bernie sanders was flying high last night after his big win in michigan. here in miami, the debate was all about immigration. take a look. all this because two out of three voters here in the miami area, of course, are of
hispanic dissent. they spent most of the time sparring over that issue. they got the candidates to pledge to never deport children or adults unless they have criminal backgrounds. they wept after each other on every other nuance surrounding immigration last night. >> and i said welcome those children into this country. secretary clinton said send them back. >> he voted in the house with hard-line republicans f for in- - indefinite detention for undocumented immigrants. >> when you think about last thursday with the republicans, where you got, you know, only an understanding of one of the candidates' manhood, another candidate's hand size and spray tan, we are the only party that have candidates that take the american people seriously. >> reporter: well, as for the republicans, they square off
here in miami tonight as well. the latest polling says that donald trump has a 23 point lead over marco rubio. this will be the last gop debate before the primary here on tuesday. and if rubio doesn't win his home state, many believe he simply will have to drop out. rubio is saying he believes he is going to win here in florida. of course, we are going to have to see. that debate could change everything. gasia and dave, back out here live, as we have seen before, rubio is his best when his back is up against the wall. so a critical performance from him tonight in the debate. our coverage starts with me at 4:00 and all night long on ktvu fox 2. >> before you go, going back to last night's debate between hillary clinton and bernie sanders, the demeanor of both of the candidates, bernie sanders may seem more emboldened now after winning big in michigan, but hillary clinton still leads among delegate counts. what was the demeanor between the two?
>> reporter: well, you know, the first time we really saw the debate on the democratic side get contentious or even a little bit snippy was really at that debate in flint a few days before. last night they really went after each other harder than we have seen in the past. bernie sanders is riding a little bit higher. many people thought when it came to the michigan primary, if he would have lost michigan, it would have been over for him. hillary clinton was even making signs that she was trying to take her campaign more national at that point. but now she has hit a roadblock once again. bernie sanders prides himself on being the come from behind kid. so this all fits into his story, that at the last minute he pulls it out. we will have to see what he does here in florida. but it is giving hillary clinton some trouble, and i think we saw some of that frustration play out on the stage here in miami last night. >> ross polumbo live in miami this morning. thank you so much. we will see you again today on the 4. ahead of today's presidential primary in ohio a
judge set to hear arguments today over whether a 17-year- old can vote in that state. it was filed in senator by the bernie sanders campaign and six ohio families. ohio is one of 20 states which allows 17-year-olds who will be 18 before the fall election to vote in the primary. it says 17-year-olds can vote on the nomination of the candidates and not in the presidential contest because delegates are lekked and not nominated. protection against flooding. that's what they're hoping for in one part of san francisco. ahead, what city officials are testing out this morning. plus,
welcome back to "mornings on 2". 8:16. if you are about to jump on bart, you may have to fight to get a seat or fight to get room to stand. >> today bart is considering fining the people who take up extra spaces. ktvu's janine de la vega reports from fremont with what would happen to the seat hogs. >> reporter: passengers are telling us it's definitely a problem. sometimes people take up to two seats to sleep. other times people put bags on an empty seat and it's hard for riders to deal with. >> people are real inconsiderate. they take the seat up. spread out. go to sleep. all kinds of things. >> reporter: have you ever confronted somebody? >> no. it would create a problem.
>> reporter: the bart board of directors is going to consider fining passengers who take up more than one seat. the first violation would be a $100 fine. the second infraction would be $200. after that it would be $500. bart officials are float this idea around to help people who are standing in packed trains and help people with disabilities who have nowhere to sit. under the new rule, if anybody with a disability needed multiple seats to help, they would be allowed to do so. while this is supposed to be discussed today, it would need a vote at a future date for it to become law. janine de la vega, ktvu fox 2 news. >> all right. thank you. our time is now 8:17. as we get you out the door, steve paulson has your forecast. and there is lots to talk about. what is this, steve? >> this is lake county. this is kelsey creek fromio land

example. it is blocking some entrances to residential homes as well. for a business owner across the street, i says the barrier may work against him. >> say it works on this corner. what's gonna happen to everything across the street? those people are flooded worse. obviously, that water's got to go somewhere. >> reporter: along with the project, sfpuc is evaluating longer term capital projects. they include 17th and folsom, kyoga and ail gain any. these projects expected to cost about $250 million. as we take a back here, officials say the barrier works out, it may be deployed across other parts of the city. back you to. 8:32. let's talk more about the weather. >> yes. steve is here with your forecast. where is it at now? >> well, it's moving through marin county. i mean, it's pouring or nothing. >> yeah. >> and a close up look here.
