tv KTVU Mornings on 2 at 7am FOX October 14, 2016 7:00am-9:01am PDT
>> this is ktvu mornings on 2. >> 7:00. we are tracking the first major storm of the season. it started raining up in the north bay several hours ago. as you can tell from the picture, the rain is moving through other parts of the bay area and making its way to the heart of the bay area here in oakland. it is friday, october 14th. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> what did you see coming in. >> i had dry weather coming in. >> okay. >> about an hour and a half ago. it is changing. >> it is changing. i'm dave clark. we have live coverage this morning. >> let's start with our meteorologist rosemary orozco in the weather center. >> yeah. the rain is widespread and windy along the coastline, with an advisory expected there to last the entire day. a little bit of snow in the mountains. it won't impact the passes. details straight ahead. giving you a look at storm tracker 2. where we have watched the bulk of the
moisture slip from northern california to us here at home. in the last 24 hours, far north. anywhere from 5 to 7 inches of rain reported. for us, we won't see as much but still a healthy amount. widespread right now green on the screen from the coast all the way inland. now beginning to approach i-80 through fairfield, around american canyon and it looks like vallejo. the san raphael bridge has been off and on wet throughout the morning. that will continue. for the east bay, even though it looks mainly dry, i'm receiving reports of drizzle and light rain for the east bay shoreline through oakland, pleasant hill, to the south. actually a little bit of drizzle reported there. thank you for the tweets. in the sierras, we have rain- snow mix. that means you can get over the pass without the chains. what you will need is hold tight to the wheel.
very windy there until 5:00 in the afternoon. for the entire tahoe area. here at home we don't have an advisory for the winds but they are kicking up at time. gusting to near 40 at times. especially right along the coastline where it's going to be a little treacherous today. a flood advisory as well as a high surf advisory for today. waves could reach ten to 15 feet. dave engineer us -- dangerous waves and the possibility of erosion for us. half an inch to an inch of rain expected with the system today. it won't last the entire day. by noon, 1:00, 2:00, it moves out of the way and we are mainly dry for the rest of your friday. i will have the timeline on the first system and what is to come for your bay area weekend in a little bit. in the meantime, let's get on to the highways where the roads are slick this morning. >> we have wet highways all
over the place. from the toll plaza into san francisco, let's take a look at the commute. you will see that the traffic will be busy as you drive into the city. a 30-minute delay before you make it on to the span. and more on the bridge getting into city. highway 24, we had an early accident in this stretch. it is also wet here. traffic is slowing down through la fayette on the way to orinda and the oakland area. in the east bay, there's a crash 880 at davis street. slow traffic there. southbound 101 behind schedule because of a crash they're clearing. southbound 101 approaching the golden gate bridge is busy, heading down south. please give yourself extra time on that grade getting into ma written county. the traffic has been slow in the east bay. we have talked about highway 24. highway 4 is also slow. light rain is falling in the north bay this morning.
let's go live to christien kafton in that vat owe in navota. >> not a real deluge yet. but we are seeing a steady rain up here in the north bay. the rain expected to hit in the morning commute this morning. george set up a camera this morning on our drive north. a couple hours ago we were in mill valley. as we drove up, you could see that we needed our wind shield wipers going. you could see rain on the windshield. we watched as caltrans crews put up barricades in mill valley. a low-lying area that is expected to flood today as the rains push through. the high tide expected around 11:15 this morning just as the brunt of the storm is rolling through. drivers this morning say they are already seeing wet conditions out there on the
woods. >> i just got off the road right now. it's wet and obviously it is slick. i am driving slower than i would on a typical day. >> you're a professional driver. you drive more than the average person. are people doing okay this morning. >> so far so good. but in the afternoon when i drive home, i get cut off right and left. >> reporter: now, of course, again, not wanting to cut anybody off. the advice from chp last night and this morning is leave extra room in front of your car. also, it's a good idea to leave extra time in the morning commute. if it takes you half an hour to get into work normally, give yourself 45 minutes or more time. certainly the wet roads out there will make things slow in some areas. be aware of the possibility of other vehicles spinning out or skidding out in front of you. certainly a warning for anybody driving and hitting the roads this morning to take it easy out there. now, in the next hour or so, we're hoping to set it up so you can get a view of what that
commute might look like. we will rig our trucks so you can see just what real time conditions are like out there on the roads this morning. >> thank you, christian. at this point, more than 11,000 people are still without power this morning in san pablo and richmond. joining us on the phone now is jd. thanks for joining us. >> where does the situation stand? how many people are without power and where are they? >> the safety of our customers and communities is pg&e's top priority. the first significant storm of the season as you know are expected to rise in our service territory yesterday. continuing off and on throughout the weekend. we're closely tracking the weather system and mobilizing crews and materials into areas that are seeing the brunt of the storm so they can get back to work and restore power back to customers quickly and
safely. we have activated emergency centers in anticipation of the storm as well. this morning, we have in the east bay around 11,500 customers out. and these outages started between about 4:00 and 5:00 a.m. this morning. these are multiple weather related outages. various causes. again, due to the weather. r. but at this time, we don't have an estimate for restoration. but we are working as quickly as possible and again, mobilizing crews from the lesser impacted areas to assist. >> did you have more crews, if you will, on stand-by in anticipation for today? or is it the normal number of crews responding to power outages? >> oh, yeah. we have been preparing for the storm. we have extra crews and resources on alert and they're ready to respond as soon as outages occur. >> is this a situation where we haven't seen rain in months and there is dust on the lines and
that causes outages. i can't imagine it's because of trees physically pulling the lines down. >> you are correct. it looks like flashovers or tracking can be the cause here for several of the outages. and for your listeners, basically during the dry days of summer, dust, dirt, salt, other substances can accumulate on power lines. when the first mist or light rain of the season occurs, it can turn into a mud-like substance that can damage electrical equipment, resulting in small fires on our poles. but this condition is, again, known as tracking or flashover. it is infrequent that occurs in the late summer and early fall. they seem to be concentrated as we're experiencing here. most of the customers are in san pablo and richmond. >> jd, one of our crews out and about in the east bay actually caught on camera a big flash as they were driving down 80. is that in fact a transformer
that blew or was it something else? >> you know what, i wouldn't be able to confirm on that specific outage. i don't know the cause on each individual outage in those areas. but that is likely. you know, it is a possibility. and i can't confirm if that was -- if that was our equipment or, you know, if that was the cause. >> okay. again, jd, there is no estimated time to have the service back on for everybody? >> that is correct. but, again, we are out. we have multiple crews in the area. and safety, again, of our customers, employees, and communities is our top priority. we're working safely and we will continue to work as quickly as possible this morning. >> thank you, jd, from pg&e, for joining us on the line. >> have a great day. >> you too. you can download our weather app to get the latest on the storm. our team is posting updates to instagram and facebook and
twitter throughout the morning. >> the block is hot. it's time to get rid of the killer cops. >> protesters stopped the council session for 15 minutes, forcing council members to leave the main chambers. the council was right in the middle of debate on police use of force. counsel i will told demonstrators don't interrupt proceedings or the council members would leave. the protesters yelled back if you want to leave, leave. >> we have to go after certain people. that's what we're going to do. >> the police here, just like around the country, have become so disrespectful of the citizens. >> city officials say the police and the community have to work together. the city council says the city has spent a lot of money on dashboard cameras and they are getting training, more than the state requires. protesters were protesting a deadly shooting last july where
a man was shot 14 times. his family says he was mentally ill. beginning next year, the u.s. justice department will collect information from law enforcement agencies on deadly police encounters. it is an ambitious effort to record police use of force in any death that occurs during a law enforcement encounter. it is in response to the national outcry over deadly police shootings. a busy intersection in milpitas will be closed for the next five weeks. how it will affect your commute in the short term but it should help it in the long run. half of adults in the u.s. are feeling stress over the elections. up next, the american psychological association has a tip on how to deal with it.
hey guys. i called you all in because i just had an idea. brunch. allday, every day. brunch? that's great! where'd you get that idea? well... sweetie? you know what we're craving right now? crispy chicken, and fried egg, with bacon. like brunch. brunch? but it's 8pm and it's tuesday. huh, i wonder if my mother would like to stay with us... should we get started? who wants coffee? introducing my new brunchfast menu. with tasty options like my brunch burger and a crispy bacon and egg chicken sandwich. served all day, every day. only at jack in the box.
>> the time is 7 -- 7:13. donald trump's numbers are falling. hillary clinton's are rising. but both candidates are facing significant problems with voters. doug luzader is live in washington with the latest. doug. >> good morning. the new poll numbers are fascinating because it shows how quickly things can change in a presidential campaign. look at the center column. this is was october 3rd through 6th. just a two-point race. now hillary clinton has a 7- point lead. that is outside the margin of error. r. >> these claims are all fabricated. they're pure fiction and they're outright lies. >> reporter: a push back from donald trump, calling stories of him forcing himself on women untrue despite a number of allegations from women including a people magazine reporter and a woman who sat next to him on a flight more than 30 years ago. many of his supporters are
unswayed. >> we don't believe any of it. it's unimportant anyway. >> reporter: the bigger concern, independent voters. clinton and trump are tied among the group. that's not good enough for trump. >> it's important to lead by independents because there's more democrats than republicans in the country. you have to win your own party and a little bit in the middle in order to take over. >> and the disturbing stories just keep cameoing clinton trying to capitalize on the troubles but the poll show her familiar challenges. 60% of likely voters say they don't trust her. new hacked e-mail disclosures from the campaign won't help either. hispanic democratic leaders like former new mexico mayor were called needy latinos. and voters are not impressed by clinton or trump. 60% of them say a serious scandal is somewhat or very likely in either a trump or
clinton administration. so there's that to contend with perhaps. now, when we look at independent voters, you know, we talk about the fact that clinton and trump are tied up in -- with that group of voters. you compare that to the end of last month where donald trump had a 12-point advantage among independents. so this may represent a group of voters that are just beginning to decide now who they're going to vote for. that's a significant drop for trump to try to make up some lost ground between now and election day. there is not much time left. >> thank you, doug. the time is 7:16. many people in the u.s. are concerned about the outcome of the presidential election. and now we're hearing the election is a leading cause of stress among americans. the american psychological association released a survey that shows that half of americana difficults are very or somewhat stressed by the
election. the association says that puts the election in line with other major life stressors like the economy, money or your job. adults who use social media were more likely to say that the election was causing them stress. one way to avoid the stress, don't talk about the election too much. whatever happens november 8th, life will go on. sal has been busy all morning, especially focusing in the north bay where there's rain. now it's moving its way through the central part. >> that's right. but most of the crashes started in the north bay because that's where the rain started first. let's go there first. northeast bay. highway 37. we had an early grass fire at skaggs island. it set the pace and now we have a crash at wilson avenue. traffic leaving from marin will be slow. heard of a new injury accident south 101. this is already backing traffic
up into novato. if you're going up to the windsor exit, they're clearing an accident that was blocking lanes. spencer has been cleared up. let's go to the east bay. i want to mention the bay bridge toll plaza backed up for a 20-minute delay. at university accident in berkeley, there is a crash at 880 in davis. and we've had on the contra costa commute, richmond parkway at pittsburgh avenue, the signal lights are out. let's talk about the san mateo bridge there. traffic there is slow. you can see traffic will be slowing down. it looks like it's very slow on that span. i don't see any problems reported here. something could have just come in. westbound 380 el camino in san bruno, there's a crash there. a flaming power pole visible from 9 freeway. you can see this traffic here is not good on the way over to the peninsula. 7:18. let's go to rosemary now in the weather center. >> okay. as you said, it's coming down
over the north bay. it is slowly shifting across into the central bay. only takes a little bit to make the roads slick, especially with all of the oil that has accumulated over the last several months. giving you a live look at a gray, gray start. north bay seeing widespread rain but scattered showers in many other areas, even areas not being picked up by the radar. some of this stuff is actually falling below the radar beam. take a look at storm tracker 2 now. we started the morning at 4:00 or so. and the brunt of the moisture was well to the north. not the case at this time. lake county stretching down into marin, we have widespread rain, breezy at times. gusts anywhere from 25 to 30 miles per hour. even stronger than that at the coast. it's now around american canyon and into the san pablo bay area, stretching across the san raphael bridge. i mentioned earlier that even though we're not seeing a lot on the screen, areas from oakland into pleasant hill and
down south i'm hearing a little bit of drizzle, a few light sprinkles. so even though it looks mainly dry, we're seeing the light drizzle as well. this will continue to shift through the morning hours and early afternoon. look at the winds. 22 miles per hour san francisco. nap a29. half moon bay. when we calculate the gusts that tend to be 5 to 10 miles per hour faster than that, it's strong along the coastline. coastal flooding definitely a possibility today. the erosion as well as dangerous waves. not a good place to be along the coast if you can avoid it do so. looking at the 7:00 hour. still over portions of the north bay. 8:00, it is into the east bay where we have steady rain. by 9:00, 10:00, it's moving into the south bay. you will see it will move from north to south. by about noon time, still over the central bay and south bay and still along the peninsula. but the north bay begins to dry out. by 11:00, noon time. for the second half of the
afternoon, we will see it push to the south. by the evening drive, we're looking good. sprinkles and partly cloudy skies. but all in all, the rain will be on its way out. giving you a look at the accumulations expected for the system for today. anywhere from half an inch to an inch for most of us. more than that for the hills. they could pick up an inch and a half to three inches. we will see a lot of accumulation. for most of us, just a half inch to an inch. that is a goodment a. let's look at the numbers. 62 in san francisco right now. 64 in walnut creek. again, it's breezy. it is cloudy, breezy. it's a big soggy for most. as we get into the afternoon, temperatures only going to warm to the upper 60s. not a lot of change for the temperatures today. 69 redwood city. 69 in fremont. 70 for concord. drying out by the evening hours. if you have evening plans, keep the umbrella handy. i think we will be mainly dry
for your friday night. saturday looks scattered showers for the first part of the day. if you have soccer, baseball, activities, you should be in a- okay shape. sometimes the fields are so saturated that they cancel anyways. saturday and sunday, that's when the next wave comes through. sunday could be a wet one. >> thank you, rosemary. it has gone viral. the video of a great white shark smashing into a diver's cage with the diver still inside. >> he's in the cage. >> oh, my god. >> go down there and help him. >> not me. >> that close call posted on youtube by user gabe and garrett. yikes. a great white shark breaking into a shark's cage off of the coast of mexico. you see the shark leap out of the cage. moments later, look at the bottom of the screen. here comes the diver. >> can you imagine. >> not hurt. >> the person who shot the
alla lot of it's a hoax.bal warminit's a hoax. it'll get cooler. it'll get warmer. it's called weather. we need some global warming! we need leaders who get it. so that we can move away from coal and oil to
clean energy. i'm tom steyer. if you want to do something about climate change, you can. please. register and vote. nextgen california action committee is responsible for the content of this advertising. >> welcome back to mornings on 2. it is 7:25. bay area law enforcement agencies will take part in next
tuesday's memorial service for the two palm springs police officers killed saturday responding to a domestic disturbance. law enforcement nationwide are mourning the deaths but this is a painful reminder for the santa cruz police department who lost two officers during a domestic violence investigation. >> it's just a small piece of you that crumbles every time that an officer's life is taken. >> now, in that palm springs shooting, the suspect's mother called police saying he was causing a disturbance. investigators say he shot and killed the two police officers. doctors are calling it a major break through in helping paralyzed patients overcome their disabilities. scientists and physicians at the university of pittsburgh have come up with a way to allow a paralyzed man to feel
again. they implanted small electrodes in the sensory core text of the brain. it receives signals from a robotic arm. the man felt pressure from his paralyzed right hand. >> okay. i usually feel it in the base of my fingers. you know, like the finger pads. usually a tingle or some pressure like -- like someone is squeezing. >> this experiment attracted the attention of president obama during a white house conference on modern medicine at the university of pittsburgh. the president shook hands with the paralyzed man saying he could not be any prouder. there have been several recent armed robberies around the uc berkeley campus. we will tell you what police have to say about possible connections between them. antigay slurs are found on the campus of santa clara university. we will show you video related
to the investigation and you will hear from students. it is wet out there. you can see by looking at the richmond bridge approach, it is a little wet. it is not raining right now but there is a backup stretching to the bridge. the wet windy weather will continue to march through the bay area for your friday. i will look at where it is now and when i expect it to move out of the way and whether we will seymour wet weather in store for your weekend coming up.
>> welcome back to mornings on 2. here is your weather radar. you want to know where the rain is right now in the bay area? well, we're tracking it for you with the radar. it is a wet morning commute but things will dry out later in the day. we will bring you up to date on everything. rosemary is here. welcome back to mornings on 2. friday, october 14th. i'm dave clark. >> and i'm gasia mikaelian. we have live team coverage for you this morning beginning with our meteorologist rosemary orozco. >> yes. the steady rain over the north bay. >> yes. >> and shifting across the central bay in the next hour or so. then it tracks towards the south bay. it is moving from north to south. as we move through your friday. looking at storm tracker 2 over the northern edge of california. anywhere from five to seven inches of rain in the last 24 hours. for us, not so much. i think most of us will see an inch or less, unless you're in the hills. the coastal range, santa cruz
mountains will pick up from there. for us at home in portions of the north bay, an inch, maybe an inch and a half all said and done. it is widespread. it stretches across i-80, her call he's and fairfield. and i'm getting many, many reports of light mist and drizzle over the entire bay area. although you can see from this picture here the central and the south bay not seeing the brunt of it just yet. it will take a few hours before it marchs through the central and south bay. in the sierra, we have a rain- snow mix that you can see over the higher elevations. won't impact the passes for today. you should be fine getting over the passes. where you will have trouble is with the winds. we are looking at winds gusting very, very high. in fact high wind warning in place until 5:00 this afternoon. if you're going over the sierra for today, be prepared. it will be a breezy one and
hazardous with the wind and rain. here at home, no wind advisory but the winds are gusting. oakland has a gust at 21. north bay around napa and santa rosa reporting gusts around 25. along the coastline, it is windy. a high surf advisory in place. waves could reach 10 to 15 feet. we have high tide coming later this morning, right around 11:00 or so. for today, we're looking at the rain moving through. not the entire day. i think by 3:00, 4:00, we're pretty much in the dry. we are looking at rainfall amounts half an inch to an inch. up to three inches nor the hills. as well as the santa cruz mountains and windy at times. when i come back, we will look at the timeline and go expect by step, when i expect it to move out but for how long. i will have the weekend forecast coming up. more coming down the road. in the meanwhile, let's check on the roads with sal.
good morning. >> good morning. a couple of crashes and a lot of slow traffic out there and the wet weather. i want to mention southbound 101 we have the crash at the parkway backing traffic up into novato. there was a crash reported northbound 101 that was a minor crash where a car lost control and spun out and was facing the wrong way. luckily no one hit that car there. i do want to mention that we've already had a deadly crash in richmond. this is according to the sergeant at the scene. a man was riding a motorcycle, lost control, possibly because of the wet roads. was thrown from the bike. the person was taken to the hospital but did not survive. no other cars were involved. the rider was wearing a helmet and the incident is under investigation. let's move along to a live picture of the east shore freeway. on the right, we normally do not see slow traffic heading eastbound. there it is. and we're looking for a crash westbound. but it may be affecting the
eastbound commute. westbound, a crash reported. but the traffic is going to be slow. now, we do have an accident reported eastbound at penola road. it is possible that the trip eastbound is way below the speed limit. but i don't see anything like that on the road sensors. here is a look at the bay bridge teleplays. that is a 25-minute delay. that is looking normal. not raining hard but gusty winds. developing news out of the east bay. the rain has led to power outages and that has led to traffic troubles with? traffic lights not working. alex savage is there. have you seen any impact on this and other things, alex? >> reporter: yeah. we certainly have, sal. good morning to you. a number of power outages across the east bay. 11,000 people without power. let me show you a live picture from the front of the truck
here. traveling west on richmond parkway. coming up to goodman avenue. you can see this is one of many intersections where the traffic lights are out. and as a matter of fact, just a short time ago, there was a three-car fender bender at that particular intersection. nobody hurt in that accident. but of course it was caused by the fact that the lights were out and people were stopping. and you are seeing live here a pretty good band of rain moving into our area as well. so this -- these outages happened earlier this morning. in fact i want to show what you we witnessed while we were driving along 880 this morning. ning. >> oh. >> oh. >> and there you hear my genuine reaction as we were looking out the front window and saw a huge -- a couple huge flashes of light off in the distance out in front of us. at first we thought it was lightning. it turns out we believe these were transformers, potentially exploding this morning. at last check, according to
pg&e, 11,500 customers are without power in the east pavement these are in fact weather related outages is what they're telling us. we want to take you to video that we shot earlier this morning that shows power poles that were actually on fire here. and part of why they tend to get outages, even when there's just light rain, is the fact that you have dust collect on some of the power poles. and then the rainfalls on those lines and it tends to spark fires. and we saw those power poles catching fire earlier this morning. and, again, a number of people, more than 11,000 people without power in the east bay this morning. let me take you here to a live picture -- another live picture from richmond. this is from the intersection of broadway and rum reel boulevard in richmond. you can see this is another intersection where the street lights are out. so as you head out the door this morning, you are going to encounter a lot of intersections like this one where the traffic signals are
out. consider it a four-way stop and be careful as you head out the door, especially in the richmond area and around the east bay. keep in mind that the rain that is falling in this area is causing outages and could cause some delays on the roadways. >> you showed us. and we're asking people to send us their pictures and video as well. alex savage, thank you. don't forget that you can download the free ktvu weather app for the latest on the storm. and our weather team and alex also posting updates on facebook, twitter and instagram. the time is 7:38. students may be in trouble for drawing a swastica and antigay slurs on the campus. ktvu's gin gin is live in santa clara after talking with students this morning. >> reporter: gasia, so far every student that i have spoken with says this is terrible and they say that it doesn't represent the school. this vandalism occurred last
weekend in a residence hall. and swastica and inflammatory writing about the lgbt community were scrawled on a community poster board. video has been leaked in the last week that reportedly shows two young men in the elevator writing on a poster there. one is cut and is bleeding and using the blood to write. the school has not con first responderred if that is actual vandalism happening. but the provost explains how it was obtained without authorization. the university is investigate. is investigate. >> i definitely wouldn't expect someone from santa clara to be doing that. i know it was two guys who thought it was funny and it leaked on the internet. they weren't thinking too much about their actions and it's not something that represents the school that well. >> reporter: university officials are also concerned
about vandalism that occurred a week before this incident. this shows several people on campus hitting and de facing an art installation for mexican students that went missing. the display has been taken down. the president of the university says i encourage students not to stand idlely buy and ignore what happened but discuss openly why acts of hatred are not acceptable. so we've reached out to a university spokeswoman to find out what has happened to these students who they think are responsible. are they at all banned from coming inside the dorm? we're waiting to hear back. also in the meantime, next tuesday, there's going to be a forum held here that the president of the university is going to moderate to talk about these recent incidents to see how they can get the community
moving forward. gasia,. >> jeanine, thank you. to the east bay where investigators say there is a connection between a string of armed robberies around the uc berkeley campus. there have been six robberies reported since last saturday. in one case a gunman approached a person and demanded his belongings. in another the suspect had a semiautomatic handgun. the jury selection will begin on monday for the man accused of killing sierra lamar. she vanished in 2012. her body has never been found. garcia torres pled not guilty to that crime as well as to three other attempted kidnappings from 2009. hundreds of potential jurors will first fill out a questionnaire and then lawyers will review the answers and question prospective jurors next month. 12 jury members and six
>> a five week traffic closure starts today in milpitas at a busy intersection. it is for construction of a new bart station right near the great mall. they will widen the creek road that runs along south milpitas boulevard and lift the intersection by six feet. that means drivers in the area can expect delays and detours. >> it's going to be one of the first in what will probably be
a series of impediments for people driving around this area. we apologize for the inconvenience. >> the milpitas bart station is phase one of a project bringing bart passengers to milpitas. >> the time is 7:45. sal is right over there. you've been busy this morning, my friend. >> we have. it looks like we have a new crash reported same area where there was an older crash. let's start with highway 24 westbound. there's a crash reported there. and traffic is going to be slow. it was just recovering from some earlier things on this very same freeway. but now it looks like we have a new crash there. and traffic is going to be a little bit slow. they are sending medics to the scene. it looks like a vehicle spun out. we hear a lot of that on the first rains where the roads are slippery. let me say that again. slippery. and people just misjudge. they're going a little too fast. and that is what happens.
you can see traffic on the toll plaza will be slow. west 80 is also going to be pretty slow as you drive through the scene. i want to look at the maps for you because we've had a couple of things. southbound 101 still clearing from an accident in tara linda heading s the only thing helping us is traffic volume today as it usually is on fridays is a little lighter. if it wasn't for the wet weather, we might even have a decent commute. but the wet weather is slowing us down. let's go to rosemary in the weather center. >> okay. really wet in portions of the north bay. shifting to the south bay in the next few hours. sal mentioned that wet weather is creating slick roadways out there. it's been a few months and we have plenty of oil accumulated on to the roadway. a reminder to take it outside eout there. we have the storm drains that are likely to clog easily
because of the debris and leaves. you should have a little bit of minor flooding to deal with out there. here is a look at the widespread rain over the north bay. everywhere that you look and go, it stretches down to i-80 through fairfield and into the sacramento valley. we come this way. we are it over the san pablo bay. now into richmond and into areas like sausalito and the san raphael bridge. even though we're not seeing a lot on the screen here, i have to keep saying that many folks are letting me know via twitter that we are seeing mist and drizzle in the east bay and into the south bay. but the brunt of the storm remains over the north bay. windy at times. especially along the coastline. livermore reporting a gust of 24 hours. hayward reporting 23. sfo a breezy one with winds gusting to about 23 as well. here is a look at your futurecast model. as we saw a moment ago live on the radar, some of that rain, most of that rain i should say to the north of us.

there now. that won't help matters. bay bridge, it doesn't look like it's raining. this looks like a normal commute as you drive through. i want to mention there has been a deadly motorcycle crash in richmond. a man was riding a motorcycle and lost control possibly because of the wet roads. the person was thrown from the bike. no other vehicles were involved. that man was transported to the hospital but did not survive. he was wearing a helmet. the entire incident is under investigation. at 8:04, let's go back to the desk. >> thousands of people without power as a result of the storm. there's a new outage in the city of milbrae. and a thousand customers in the dark and 6,000 in the city of richmond and san pablo. alex savage and his photographer were driving when they actually saw what looked
like two transformers explode in the area. >> oh [censor] >> pg&e says outages in the east bay started between 4:00 and 5:00 this morning. an hour ago, we talk today a spokesperson from pg&e who say some of the outages may have been caused by the light rain and a built-up of dust on the power line. they are looking into the exact cause. right now there's no estimate when power could be restored. the richmond fire department responded to several calls of poles on fire because of outages. firefighters were able to quickly put this fire out. pg&e says there will be extra crews out there to help deal with the problems from the storm. the rain is causing issues on bay area roads. christien kafton has a look up in marin county. >> reporter: >> good morning. i just spoke with a gentleman
from the novato school district. he says road conditions are slow out there. exactly what you would expect. you can see how wet this intersection is. cars having to make their way through novato. we're not just seeing the rain but the wind. that can complicate the commute because not only are drivers contending with wet road conditions but also being blown around a little bit. andrew barclay joining us right now. this is sort of the heart of the commute. what are you hearing about the commute so far, especially here in the north bay? >> after about 7:00, our calls to crashes has definitely risen. we have four pending crashes in marin in addition to rock slides and mudslides in the area. we are definitely seeing wet weather related crashes. vehicle spin-outs. no injuries so far, which is great. but we're seeing a lot of the typical first rain collisions.

it has not been a bad commute. it hasn't been particularly wet but there has been dampness. let's look at 880 northbound. that is slow getting into oakland and so is 580. most of the slow traffic is when it has been raining the heaviest. new accidents in marin county. also a new accident in petaluma. napa county has an accident northbound 29. and 80 has been slow as you drive through the area. again, all of 24 and 680, all of these crashes have been coming when it has been raining. i want to mention one south bay area in the santa cruz mountains. northbound 17 at the redwood estateds. it's time for us to go to the weather. let's go to rosemary. >> okay. widespread over the north bay. it has been coming down all morning long and it is shifting into the central bay as we speak. we continue to watch the brunt of the moisture widespread over the north bay from the coast
and around the bay. we don't have to spend too much time in here because as you can see for yourself, just about everybody getting rain. it stretches now past i-80. fairfield going in and out towards the sacramento valley you will find t it's now into the east bay as well as the peninsula. let's head to the east bay where we have light rain falling along i-80. berkeley, richmond, hercules. there has been mist and drizzle for most of the morning. now you can see it is definitely more steady. along the peninsula as well we're seeing it in and around san francisco stretching down past ocean beach and areas right around pacificca. in addition to the rain, we have wind out there. again, i want to stress even though there's not a whole lot going on around here, there is mist and drizzle below the radar beam that we're not seeing. the winds have sustained in hayward at 17 miles per hour. gusting at 21 at sfo. at the coast, winds to 35 to even 40 miles per hour. so it's very, very windy out there. it will continue as we get
through the first part of the day with an advisory for not only coastal flooding but high surf for the coastline today. here is a look at where the rain is primarily. notice as we get into the 9:00 hour, it continues to shift. this is when the central bay will begin to see the more moderate steady rain. by 10:00, 11:00, it is moving into the south bay down to about fremont. by 11:00, into the south bay. for your lunch hour, widespread for the central and south bay. the north bay begins to dry out by as early as noon time. for the second half of the afternoon, it continues to taper off. i think the evening drive will be in pretty good shape, assuming this continues to march through the bay area as it is guiding us. we are looking at rainfall amounts from happen an inch to an inch -- from half an inch to an inch for most of us. again, it's been falling here since 4:00 a.m. that's the reap -- the reason
why. the coastal hills will pick up a half an inch to an inch and a half. that just today's event. look at the temperatures right now. in the 60s. into the afternoon, not a lot of change. upper 60s to near 70. 66 expected for san francisco. as we get into your extended forecast, we will get a break tomorrow morning. a few showers a possibility. then the next wave moves in and sunday looks like it will be a wet one. we will be tracking that throughout the weekend. back to you. >> thank you, rosemary. if you have not seen this video, take a look at your screen. you are seeing a close encounter with a shark. up next, more of this stunning video and what happened to a diver when that great white shark swam into his metal cage.

shoreline, through berkeley and areas in between there. crossing the san francisco, the bay bridge there, and into san francisco. if you fly along the peninsula, you can see from ocean beach down to pacifica, we have rain. the entire city of san francisco. and it cuts off at san bruno. how about orinda and highway 24. you will find it through areas of la fayette and along 80, 580, 980, in and out of oakland there. we continue the eastward trek to the sierra. rain-snow mix. but the snow levels are very high. will not impact the passes for today. i-80 and i-50 all about the wind and rain. there's a high wind warning that lasts until 5:00 this afternoon for the sierra. no wind advisory for us. but the winds are gusting to 24 miles per hour at sfo. 17 miles per hour in hayward. it is cloudy and breezy and damp. that will be the case for the first part of your friday.
there's a coast flood advisory for the coast. high surf advisory for the coast as well. waves could reach 10 to 15 feet. high tide around 11:00 or so. we will continue with that. rainfall amounts already seeing half an inch or so over the north edge of areas near sonoma county and the airport. half an inch to an inch for most of us. the hills will get more than that. santa cruz mountains and the coastal rains. and the winds will be gusty at times. not lasting the entire day. when we come back, i'll time it out for and you tell you when the system will move oust the way and when the next one will arrive. good morning, sal. >> good morning. the toll bridge will be slow. give yourself at least 20 minutes. the rain is finally moving into this area and by the way, airport delays, there are significant airport delays at san francisco and san jose. in oakland, it doesn't seem like there are any yet. but always check with your
carrier. some flights are delayed a long time. some others may not be delayed. check with your carrier and see if your individual flight is going to be delayed. there are delays known. this is highway 24. it is improving a little bit as you drive up to the tunnel. no major problems. we still have a lot of slow traffic in the north bay. that's where the rain started first, in petaluma and novato. it will be slow because of earlier issues. the traffic volume is lighter as people on fridays have the discretion not to go in the morning or at all. still expecting slow traffic this morning as the rain hits. the rain has led to power outages. and that has led to traffic troubles with traffic lights not working. ktvu's alex savage is out there and you have seen some of the impact, alex. >> reporter: yeah. we have certainly seen the impact from the storm. in terms of the outages and in terms of the crashes on the roadways. we're driving right now through a pretty good band of rain. we're here in the east bay coming from berkeley.

morning in that area. at last check with pg&e, a total of 17,000 people are without power right now all across the bay area, with the bulk of the people being in the east bay. mainly in richmond and san pack-- owe san pablo. pg&e says that dust accumulates on the power lines and when it rains, it turns to mud. the lights may be out, especially in richmond. we did see that this morning. here is a live look as you approach the maze. rain continuing to fall. traffic has been slow but not really at a stand still in the area as you approach the maze. we will make the drive towards san francisco this morning. but, again, you're going to encounter heavy rain in some spots around the bay area. the best advice is to obviously take it slow and make sure that you have plenty of stopping distance between your car and the car in front of you.
