in case of an emergency. that's a lot of water, right? >> she's going to listen. not only by the water days worth of supplies. walked away from the 7.0 experience and headed into work but it definitely rattled them. >> it was scary. it was. i never experienced an earthquake, so this was my fist time. thankfully, it was a simulator, but yeah, it was scary. >> that was amy hollyfield reporting for us from google's campus. the california emergency management agency reminding people statewide to be ready for earthquake or any type of natural disaster, so we're all encouraged to have emergency kits with items including battery operated radios and flashlights with extra batteries and also, as you heard in the piece, a three-day supply of foot and water for everyone in the family and a manual can opener. stocking your emergency kit and develop an emergency plan for your family posted right now att

their phone ring. or they were able to smell the smoke. >> it's key. so many seniors lose their hearing at some level, they have hearings aids. take them out at night. even if they are alerted to the situation, they also have mobility issues. there may be walkers. they have balance issues. maybe in a wheelchair. and if they're able to get out the door, 25% of seniors will outlive their ability to drive. so you might get out the door but then you don't have transportation. >> how do we deal with that issue? if you have friends that are older or family members or you yourself? >> you're absolutely right. it's down to community. if we are an older adult, we need to get out and meet our neighbors and let them know where you are. an aging parent, go around to their neighbors. identify yourself. give your contact information and say, mom's got some issues and if you wouldn't mind looking out for her but the older adults who got out, it was because of
friends and neighbors who knocked on their door. >> great information. thank you very much. 7 on your side. pop-up on the other side of the building. we're here to take care of the problems that fall through the cracks. people here are here for passport and insurance. 2 dozen agencies. live from santa rosa. michael finney, 7 on your side. >> you can see him until 7:00 tonight. more fallout for harvey weinstein. this is actress alyssa milano talking about the sexual harassment she faced. the abc news exclusive is next and important deadline looms for the future of amazon. what's at stake today and what it means to several bay area cities. a live look. tracking the rain we've been watching for all week. his complete accuweather

america. >> i don't know if i will ever publicly share my story. of course, i've done my own healing and been through counselling and have a great support system in my life but really, this was about showing that this happens everywhere. it's not just hollywood. >> it looks like milano really started a movement. she wants this "me too" movement to go on. not just be a one-time thing. now it's your monday morning report. major deadline in the hunt for the second u.s. headquarters. have to submit the proposals today. hq-2 up to 50,000 workers, cost at least $5 billion to build and operate. ceo jeff bezos expects it to be similar to the headquarters. it's a joint proposal with concord, san francisco, fremont, richmond and oakland.

near the coast or higher elevations where you bump into the clouds. once we get up to 4:00, scattered showers into shore. down into the south bay while there's sprinkles to scattered rain here and there. light to modern. this is the change from yesterday. storms are a little bit stronger. moving into the north bay at 7:00. rest of us, you could see scattered rain out there. by 9:00, 10:00, it's in the heart of the bay and then by 2:00 to 3:00, it's exiting the south bay from noon to about 2:00. so fast moving storm which is unfortunate because it does have a lot of moisture in it for a storm this time of the year. towards 4:00 tomorrow morning, you see scattered showers in the higher elevations especially across the north bay. those will continue until about 9:00 and then they'll dissipate and then by noon, the clouds start to epiopen up for sunshin. out and about, we'll get 0.10 inches in the south bay. peninsula into the south bay, the rain shadow but then around

temperatures next week. we flirt with 90 inland, 80s around the bay and mid 70s at the coast. it's going to be a quick whiplash of weather there. >> summer isn't over yet. it doesn't want to end. >> thank you. >> a special movement with social media today. you might notice people are wearing purple and your social feed also
