6:02 pm
and it is part of what they are expecting. >> a lot of mixed emotions with the inauguration tomorrow. many people celebrating. some people as frank mentioned protesting. what's the vibe been like overall in dc? >> reporter: it's interesting. to your point it is pretty much split. trump supporters -- there's a sense of palpable energy kind of funneling through the air. but those who are trump detractors, a lot more anxiety, people don't want to be part of this. as you know right now, close to 70 democratic house lawmakers who are planning to boycott this themselves. so there's a lot of divisiveness. going into this inauguration tomorrow. and party lines are split. trump supporters obviously jubilant. those who don't like him are not happy about it. >> i don't know if you know the answer to this but i was listening to reports earlier today talking about how frantic white house workers are when they are moving the obama's out
6:03 pm
and moving the trump's in. that they literally only have about five hours to do that tomorrow before donald trump takes residence in the white house. >> reporter: that is exactly true. and i can answer that accurately because i did a story on this two weeks ago that ran on fox news. that's exactly it. they have five hours. the movers come and the rugs get pulled up. and the bedding goes out. president obama now has a rental in a pretty -- known as kalorama. they've already begun moving his belongings in there. and now they have got to get president-elect trump's stuff into the white house. come tomorrow and there's a short five hour window of time to do that. >> definitely not an easy task there. joel waldman in the nation's capital, thank you. san francisco as we mentioned is expecting protests and rallies that could rival the pope's election march. looking at here. on friday a rally is set for

to share. in a safe place and a safe space. we want to encourage everyone to not participate in criminal activity. >> reporter: that means not breaking any windows or spray painting businesses or running roughshod through downtown like so many protests in the past. officers wearing body cams and plainclothes cops who might look like a protester in disguise will be watching. >> we may not catch you today or tomorrow but eventually we will. >> reporter: days off before police have been canceled. other agencies will be on hand for the next several days. the demonstration will begin at 7:00 a.m. at the oakland federal building. several rallies and marches are set for noon outside city hall. and on saturday there will be a march beginning at 10:00 a.m. from lake merritt to frank ogawa plaza. the chp says they'll be ready if protesters take to the freeway but they say that's not a good idea. >> we want to support people who want to exercise their rights. but you do not have the right
6:06 pm
to protest on the freeway. not only is it illegal but it's extremely dangerous as well. >> reporter: bart police will be girding for more traffic at a station. bart will be running longer trains all day friday and saturday not just during the commute hours. more officers will be on duty. >> we're going to have more officers on the streets or in the stations i should say. patrolling the station and really helping out with crowd control if that should become an issue. >> reporter: i want to share a statement issued by oakland mayor libby schaaf just a few minutes ago. she says now more than ever is the time to double down and go in hard for the things we believe in and what we know is right. it is possible to do it with compassion and without apology. and for police they say they can do it if the protesters don't do it with violence or vandalism. that's the latest from oakland. henry lee, ktvu fox 2 news. >> let's hope things stay peaceful. thank you. our coverage continues at 6:30. hear from a man who has a ticket to attend but he says he's not doing. and he's also not going to give

6:08 pm
's first -- first to christina rendon in martinez. contra costa has already declared a local state of emergency. because of millions of dollars in storm damage. >> reporter: that's exactly right. this is the proclamation of local emergency signed by the county administrator this morning. it is the first step towards the county possibly receiving federal funds for repairs. the view from sky fox shows the biggest repair needed in contra costa county. the public works department says it could take up to a year before the wide gap in alhambra valley road is fixed. >> it's all good. we go that way. >> reporter: the county is declaring a local emergency after storms led to flooding. mudslides, sinkholes and property damage. more in territory road may reopen entirely next week. between marsh creek and manning road. where flooding and mudslides are a concern. >> majority of damage occurs on the road. with mud runs and of course alhambra valley road. we also have some erosion in our flood control channel and some minor damage at some of
6:09 pm
our facilities. some of our buildings. >> reporter: deputy director says about four inches of mud washed up at the medical center parking lot in martinez. repairs are needed to at least 19 county offices. for minor roof, ceiling or window leaks. >> martinez is bad. a lot of sand bags everywhere. >> reporter: a $9 million price tag for all the damages. >> i believe this is a local declaration which is the first step towards possibly getting some federal funding to pay for these damages. >> i think that's a good idea but i think they should really do their own funding. they should really be looking at this instead of putting it off. but that's what government does. they think it'll be fine until next year. and then something happens and you got to fix it. >> reporter: with more rain on the way the county is asking residents to prep by checking the rain gutters or storm drains for any type of blockage. this emergency proclamation is going to go before the board of
6:10 pm
supervisors in a special meeting next thursday for ratification. frank? >> christina rendon, thank you. team coverage continues with bill martin. he joins us now. we're in between storms right now. we've been talking about the morning commute for tomorrow. it's going to be pretty ugly. >> it is. the texture of heavy, heavy rain standing water maybe some rockslides or mudslide concerns on the roadways. it's going to happen late tonight or early tomorrow morning. and dark i think early morning commuters, the other night i was coming home and coming off an off ramp. and all of a sudden there's the mud swamp. because the soil is saturated. a couple inches of rain overnight is going to send things down. so be prepared for the unusual especially in the dark morning hours when the heaviest rain is going to be moving through. we got a lot of rain the other day. up over four inches of rain. have a foot of rain up in the novato area. this next weather system,
6:11 pm
showing up a little early which is good. today was a good break day. a few showers but we got a real nice break. things settled down. tonight into the early morning hours tomorrow, this next storm hits giving us an opportunity for some lesser rain accumulations in the afternoon. heaviest rain is going to be right here. about 2:00 a.m. when the heaviest rain gets here. that's why i'm worried about the morning commuters because that's -- rainfall rates could be an inch and a half an hour. standing water so you may not be driving a 2:00 a.m. or 4:00 a.m. or 5:00 a.m., but when you do get on the road, at 7:00 a.m., there is standing water and the whole bit. so i want you to be prepared for that. there's the forecast. a wet friday morning commute. when i come back we're going to push this all the way through and this is storm number 2. number 3 has got bigger teeth than this one than the last two. so we'll talk about the rest of this and storm number 3 next time i see you.

6:13 pm
6:14 pm
6:15 pm
well, we knew it was coming. now it's official. the nfl announced the raiders submitted an application to relocate to las vegas. sports director mark ibanez is here. another sign that not al davis, mark davis is serious about going to las vegas. what happens next? >> i think the next big mark on the calendar is late in march i believe the 25th when the nfl owners will vote. no surprise today that the raiders applied for relocation. now the owners have to ratify it if you will and then on to
6:16 pm
getting the financing done. which leaves the question, what about that ronnie lott group that was trying to keep the raiders here? ronnie today was quoted as saying they are still in the game and they plan on winning. if you know anything about ronnie lott he believes every word he says. we had earlier former ceo of the raiders of amy trask who addressed just that topic. ronnie lott's group. >> he is a sensational. i wish him all the best. the issue ronnie has in that deal is the same thing in las vegas. a third party looking to take a piece of the prize. fortress investment group is known throughout the financial community as loan to own. they drive a very, very hard bargain and would want a large piece of the pie. just as is the case with sheldon adelson. >> so there you go. i was trying to throw in oakland raider optimism because ronnie lott believes he can still get it done but the fact of the matter is the raiders
6:17 pm
have not ever met with ronnie lott's group. >> i remember when talking with city leaders when they were discussing their plans and coming up with something to keep the raiders here. they said they have to actually sit down at the table with us first so we can talk about what we're going to do and what we can do. >> pretty clear that mark davis is not interested in that. full steam ahead. that organization and a lot of their people under mark davis have spent plenty of time about 200 days down in las vegas this past year in preparation for all this coming to fruition. so they are not about to entertain an oakland idea at this juncture. so i would say at this time, if there is no roadblock in las vegas impeding that moved, there's no reason for them to sit down and talk to the oakland officials or ronnie lott's group at all until they run into a major roadblock.
6:18 pm
>> almost seems like this is not a case where he's playing one group against the other. it feels like at least right now, the move to las vegas is what has the momentum. >> no question about it. which also leads to the next question. what happens to the raiders in the interim between when the great stadium in las vegas is to be built and here, probably two to three years, there would be a lame duck team and i think the loyalty of the raiders fans would get a huge test. are you going to stick around and support the silver and black knowing full well they are full throttle headed toward las vegas? that will be an interesting story in itself. >> i don't know about that loyal. >> you were saying in houston, the houston fans were really ticked. >> a lot of the players said it was the worst time they could ever remember but mark davis has gone on record saying the team won't try and play at unlv or anything like that. much like the chargers have agreed to start cultivating a los angeles following. so it's going to be an
6:19 pm
interesting next few months but i think the next major mark on your calendar is the nfl owners meeting and everything could change again then. if we get a no vote on that. >> yeah. mark, thank you. oakland mayor libby schaaf issued a statement that said quote oakland has something no other city ever will. a diehard fan base as mark mentioned that is loyal and true to the raiders and wants to see them stay here in oakland. where they were founded. only oakland begins -- actually brings the raiders and the nfl a competitive stadium proposal along with legacy and loyalty. back down to the weather. a mess created by our recent storms at a well-known park in the east bay. even though the floodwaters have receded del valle park is still closed tonight to visitors. rob roth tells us the park may actually stay closed until the end of the month. possibly even longer. >> reporter: at del valle park in livermore, this is the first area to get water coming up
6:20 pm
over the banks. floodwaters have finally receded unveiling an absolute mess. >> i've never seen the flooding before like this. >> reporter: jeff manley a manager with east bay regional park district showed us around this popular part. it's close to the public. >> no electricity. no sewer. the debris makes it very unsafe to be out. >> reporter: the beach is covered in tree limbs driftwood and mud that washed up when lake del valle overflowed its banks during a massive brainstorm on january 7. to give you an idea of how high the water came up here, i'm about six feet tall. and this is the water line. here is a photo of that same building before the water levels dropped. picnic tables were also submerged. now covered in debris. the volleyball courts were their own lakes and it will have to be cleaned up in an estimated cost of half a million dollars. >> it's going to take a while because conditions are so muddy. they can't get out in the vehicle and hiking in. there's over 20 miles of trail.
6:21 pm
>> reporter: the royal del valle creek is still running strong but there is erosion. ironically at the height of last summer's drought it wasn't running at all. during the storm the creek caused the lake level to rise. >> the waters started backing up. into the creek. it did flood areas of the campground. and through this velocity of the water it was jumping the banks. >> reporter: the same problem could happen again. >> there's always that concern. that we may get a flood event coming in. because we are in this rainy pattern. so we definitely have to keep reassessing the forecast. >> reporter: the park is closed until the end of january. and it's possible it could stay closed even longer. in livermore, rob roth, ktvu fox 2 news. plenty of snow up in the mountains. snow report is not lacking for snow. we've got lots of it. bases over 120 inches. 160 at kirkwood.

a sports director mark ibanez with the latest news on the raiders and this official moved to i guess official moved forward to las vegas. >> that's a better way of
6:54 pm
putting it. not to anybody's surprise but they have officially filed for relocation which of course that would be to las vegas. let's say the owners vote in march to go ahead and approve that move after analyzing all the information the raiders give them. then you have the financing situation to actually make it all happen and move to the very next step after that. we talked with former ceo amy trask about that. and the financing that would come theoretically from las vegas. >> they are not doing a deal like this for altruistic reasons. so i have to smile anytime someone says to me, you know, sheldon adelson is going to want to get a really good deal for himself. no kidding. of course he's going to want to get a good deal for himself. that's what he does. ownership of course a different issue. because the lead has very, very

strict issues with respect to owners and gambling and although a move to las vegas wouldn't be negatively impacted by a gambling -- the fact there's gambling in las vegas, there would have to be a lot of work done to isolate him before he could own any. >> many questions yet to be answered. and you could say that with regard to the 49ers coaching situation although the man they are zeroing in on kyle shanahan was named the offensive coordinator of the year with the atlanta falcons who have plenty of business left of their own to take care of with regard to the playoff game. for the right to go to the super bowl. the falcons against green bay in the a.t.l. this weekend shanahan however can't avoid being asked about all the reports that say he is basically a sure thing to take over the 49ers coaching situation. >> i think there's some interest obviously. but i thought that in my interview a couple weeks ago. looking forward to a chance to where you can speak to people
