flood warning. that's for the ellen you fire complex with lightning complex. it's the burn zone. they got up to an inch and a half to 2.5 inches of rain in a very short amount of time, and so when they go up to a warning, that means it's happening. it means there's some debris flow in the area. that means there's some flooding in the area. so be careful. i suspect we're going to see more of that. as this system moves south into the santa cruz mountains, franken julie mentioned the winds it's blowing happened big, gusting to near 50 miles an hour. san jose gusting to near 50 miles an hour, lots of down trees. lots of branches lot. the wind issues right now the system is moving fairly quickly's a good d see the back edge of it moving out. we're seeing snow up on skyline boulevard. we're seeing snow up in the north bay up around sonoma county and napa and you can see the heart of this storm as it kind of pushes through the area and right now is engaged with basically the central part of the bay area and just now getting into san jose, take a look at a live weather observer tree down with
wires to state route 35. so when you see all these. reports and these are just a few of these air weather observers for the national weather service. there's thousands of limbs down there, step, so be careful driving around. these were just examples of what's going on out there. when we come back, we'll take a look at the radar will push this thing through with the model to tomorrow. we're gonna get a break, and then we'll look at some more rain in the five day forecast. well as bill just mentioned, the bay area's highest elevations are getting slammed right now, with wind rain, even some snow, and that is a threat to areas that burn. just a few months ago. ktvu is amber lee joins us now live. she's in the santa cruz mountains tonight in amber. it's just been pouring out there all night, julie. it's been raining hard, and it's been like this for hours. it's also cold and windy. earlier we spoke with people in boulder creek to talk about the storm and the evacuation orders along highway nine in boulder creek.
a flashing sign spells out the situation 5000 people. or 2800 homes are under evacuation orders in santa cruz county as they cope with the storm and possible mudslides or debris flow, quite concerned, depending on how the storm turns out, and it's always difficult to say how a storm will end up. i just don't want the house, you know, i don't want it to be so bad that the houses. you know, ruined the flooded or not. they're a difficult year for julie. she meal evacuating on this night, she says the ccu lightning fire last summer forced her out of her home for five weeks. once oil does become burned to that extent it no longer absorbs water cow farces. the heavy rains will turn the mud into a hazard once those mudslides or debris flows start. you can't stop them. there's nothing you can do to stop it. and once you hear it, it's probably too late. erosion sand control bags, they will be in the other side of
the yard. at scarborough lumber forklift operator xander bollinger's shows us the empty pallets due to the high demand from customers as they prepare for the storm. he was planning to evacuate from his boulder creek home after work all the trees around my house like directly, like right next to my house, they're all burned and stuff like that, and the soil is like just basically ash, and it's not. not settled, so it'll definitely come down with these ranges at while roots market at the center of town workers say a dozen employees left work early to evacuate from their homes. the storm may be short staffed wednesday, but the market plans to be open and it has a generator if needed as a store manager. thankfully i'm in a safe zone as well. so i'll do everything in my power to keep the store open and be here for the community. she meal says she's looking on the bright side. she's a hairdresser and has been out of work during the pandemic. but with the stay at home order lifted, she plans to return to work this weekend. i just really love this community and i don't want to move out. and i
think that everybody pitches in when something like this happens, many people tell me they'll be staying at hotels and felton, santa cruz and santa clara county. but they say they're hopeful that they'll be able to return home by tomorrow night, julie. right. and you amberleigh, be safe out there. thank you. our team coverage continues now with ktvu deborah villalon. she's following potential trouble spots in those burn areas in the north bay. debra yeah, frank. three burn areas from last fall in particular. let's take a look at one of them. ah live picture now from the skyhawk neighborhood below the glass fire. it is along highway 12 and east santa rosa. it's one of the areas. being pummeled tonight and being washed with rain starting before dark. sonoma county
braces for an uneasy night, hopefully by one or two o'clock this morning, the storm will have moved on officials unsure if the fire charred landscape behind so many homes will let loose when it's pounded by rain. either as a debris flow, picking up rock and sediment. as it goes, it creates kind of a slurry like cement. it's literally earth in motion. at that point, it's almost liquid in form or a landslide. when soils move as almost a solid mass, both those conditions could be created when they're significant rainfall in a burn scar area. and so responders wait, ready? the city of santa rosa activated its emergency operations center this evening, staffing it overnight and urging residents to be vigilant too. if you see anything, any sort of movement and the excessive blood or anything sliding under your property. please don't hesitate to call 911 and it doesn't look right the mud slides and stuff. these
residents are grateful that kincaid fire that burned down to windsor backyards was in 2019, so the scar has had a bit more time to regrow burned all the way from. i think, 30 miles up t o right behind these houses right here. they they're back. fences burned on. there's some pretty steep hills up there. and although there are no evacuation orders in sonoma county tonight, do not wait for us to come and evacuate you. the county fire chief urges residents to act on any doubts now middle of the night when the storm is at its peak, households in jeopardy may not be very rest fall anyway. think somewhere safe for tonight so you can. sleep all the night and not have that concern about what that hillsides doing behind you. since last year's fires tremendous effort has gone into rehabilitating damaged watersheds. knowing that storm's like this, we're coming. public works crews clear dead trees leave the stumps, seed the slopes and restore drainage. sonoma county
has spent a few million dollars on such work, frank. hopefully they'll see some of that payoff tonight. yeah, hopefully all right. deborah villalon life force tonight, deb. thank you. parts of lake county are being blanketed by snow tonight. it started late this afternoon is lois 1500 ft. parts of napa county even saw snow. the heaviest snow is expected to fall overnight with a second round occurring tomorrow morning drivers. we spoke with along highway 1 70. five above middletown and along highway, 29 said they were not prepared. i was sliding all over the road, and i didn't have a lot of traction even with my traction control on and all were dr. a winter storm warning remains in effect until noon tomorrow above 2000 ft. in lake county. the national weather service has upgraded a winter storm cals is expecting five or more feet
