it was very terrifying. we've heard the term down that because that's not a great road to be on right now. >> reporter: in pleasant hill, jodie hernandez, nbc bay area news. a call for justice in the east bay. a group of elected leaders are blasting the alameda county district attorney and her decision not to file new criminal charges against a b.a.r.t. police officer involved in the death of oscar grant. oakland city council member lauren taylor along with b.a.r.t. directors had some harsh words for da nancy o'malley today. yesterday o'malley announced her office had concluded there was not enough evidence to support new charges against former b.a.r.t. police officer anthony pieroni, the officer seen holding down oscar grant when another officer shot and killed him on the b.a.r.t. platform on new year's day of 2009. >> we have waited too long as a community, as a national and
international community to get justice for oscar grant. and justus delayed isrn o'malle has not responded to today's comments and today's news conference. two months after california voters passed the ride share initiative prop 22 a group of drivers and labor unions contends it is un-constitutional. they have filed a lawsuit with state supreme court claiming 22 limits to power of elected officials. the suit says the proposition blocks the legislature's ability to grant workers the right to organize unions. one of the three drivers who joined the lawsuit said the people of california should make laws not the wealthy executives who led the ride share company. have you ever forgotten your pass word? for most of us probably yes. but this forgotten pass word is worth millions of dollars. this is aggravating. a san francisco man has two chances remaining to figure out
the pass word to his digital wallet. that wallet is holding about $220 million bucks of bitcoin. according to the "new york times" the man lost the piece of paper where he wrote down the pass word for the account years ago. the digital wallet only gives users ten guesses before it locks and encrypts the account forever. he's got two more chances. maybe it's his middle name and the year he was born. >> oh, gosh. doesn't he have it written down someplace on a piece of paper upside down highlighted somewhere stuffed in a drawer? we all have that? >> it's somewhere. gosh. >> what do you think? >> yikes. well, i have never had that happen with bitcoin but i did once, i couldn't get into my phone with some encryption and the whole thing was erased. >> crazy. >> it's on a different scale. it was painful. okay. that guy is in for a lot more
pain if he can't find that pass word. i felt i could relate. let's bring you into the micro climate forecast tonight. we have some dangerous waves out here at the coast line. if for any reason you were heading to the beaches please, please stay out of the water. we have our high surf advisory in effect where waves could get up to 25 feet. again, that is for our entire coast line. current reports reading 11 to 13 feet but isolated waves up to 25 feet will be possible. now the weather pattern today pretty gloomy outside. we have the cloud cover i talked about moving in. a little spotty drizzle and the best rain chances up toward oregon and the california border and then out here more cloud cover on the way as we roll into tomorrow morning. so here is the deal. forecast tomorrow. i think we start off with the clouds through most of the bay area and then by the afternoon we should start to get in on some sunshine especially from san francisco to the east bay and down to the south bay. it's up into the north bay where we could be locked in with cloud
cover through tomorrow afternoon. temperatures warming up a little bit with some increased sunshine. 65 in livermore. 64 san jose. 63 palo alto. right over to san francisco we're looking at 59 on my forecast. let's bring you into the seven day. there is a lot to talk about here. as we head through the next few days i expect some patchy fog to return by thursday morning. then eventually we start to see the sun return. up to 68 on saturday with some sunshine. 70 on sunday. about 15 degrees above our averages. then it's looking more and more clear that by next monday we could have wind in the hills out of the northeast. 15 to 25 miles per hour. that is a drying wind. it is usually a fire wind force. can increase the fire danger. we have had some rain recently so it is going to help that. with that 70 on sunday and the warmer weather comingda on that. 74.34% of california is now in a severe drought.
we are 4 to 11 inches behind for the rainfall season. jessica, in less than a half hour i'll take a look at the snow pack and break apart those numbers and when we could get things to change for us. i can confirm tonight i had no problems getting in on my phone since i'm using it to broadcast live back to the studio. >> you've got your pass word. all good to go. thank you, jeff. much more to come in the next 40 minutes including president trump losing support among republicans by the hour. what's going to happen at tomorrow's impeachment hearing? we'll be joined by our political analyst. also, 2035 isn't coming fast enough for one local leader. when she wants to ban the sale of gas powered cars in her city. but first, lotto fever hitting an all time high. two separate jack pots worth more than a billion dollars. "b" billion. we'll show you the lucky bay area stores.
lotto mania. lotto fever. a lot of cash to be handed out. nearly $1.2 billion up for grabs the next two nights. first up tonight the megamillions. the jackpot at $625 million. this is the eighth largest jackpot in u.s. history. no one has won the megamillions since mid september. it has rolled over 33 times. people today headed to their favorite liquor or convenience stores to buy tickets and we didn't find any lines at all possibly because of covid concerns. your chance of winning the megamillions? 1 in 303 million. what will people do with the money if they win? >> if i win i'm going to help people. that's what i'm going to do because a lot of people are hurting right now because of the pandemic and what is the use of having money if you can't help people? >> my family would be taken care of, my kids. a lot of people are going to get a lot of nice gifts this year.
>> now if you don't win the megamillions tonight there is the powerball tomorrow night. $550 million up for grabs. a smaller jackpot but your chances are better. instead of 1 in 303 million it's 1 in 292 million. this is the coincidence. the powerball has also rolled over 33 times. and tomorrow january 13th could prove to be a lucky draw day. wednesday's powerball drawing coincides with the fifth anniversary of the powerball record jackpot of $1.6 billion. that was five years ago tomorrow. it was shared by winners in california, florida, and tennessee. so a lot of money up for grabs. if you don't have your ticket for megamillions tonight you still have a chance. the last ticket will be handed out and sold at 7:45 p.m. then the drawing is at 8:00. if you win, $625 million, i did some research and math this afternoon. i was a math major for the first two years of college. if you stacked up $625 million
in $100 bills? it would reach 2200 feet high. that is two sales force towers in san francisco on top of each other. >> sounds wonderful. >> i've always loved the sales force towers. >> i am doing, you know, research today so i had to buy my own tickets just to make sure >> i did that last week. i didn't win. >> yeah. >> what time does the newscast end? 7:00? we still got a chance to go out and buy some tickets. thanks, janelle. >> thank you. up next at 6:30, president trump delivers his first speech since the capitol riot as democratic lawmakers prepare to impeach him. our political analyst tells us what to expect over the next 24 hours. banning the sale of gas powered cars. one bay a
right now at 6:30, no 25th amendment. vice president pence says he will not invoke that amendment to remove presi amendment is not in the best interests of this nation. >> late today he sent a letter to speaker nancy pelosi, this letter, in it he says the president's fitness for office must be a medical decision based on science and facts not based on behavior we don't like.
mr. pence said it would be a terrible precedent to invoke the 25th. this is happening at the same time house members are voting on a resolution that calls on pence to invoke the 25th amendment. this is a live look at that vote. democrats have a back-up plan. impeachment. they are expected to vote on that tomorrow. in the last hour east bay congressman eric swalwell was named as impeachment manager. some republicans are backing impeachment. the biggest name is senate majority leader mitch mcconnell according to the "new york times." mcconnell told associates impeachment will make it easier to purge trump from the gop. also today the country received its first fbi briefing on the capitol attacks. the department of justice says the investigation is just beginning and more charges are coming. right now more than 100,000 pieces of video have been submitted for this investigation. there is a serious concern about the inauguration. the inauguration is one week from tomorrow. large, metal gates have been
installed around the capitol perimeter. >> we want to bring in our political analyst to talk about the effort of the democrats to remove the president from office. let's bring larry in. let's start with this growing number of republicans, very high level republicans, liz chaney, mitch mcconnell, now saying they support impeachment and in mcconnell's case he has to be rubbed the wrong way by the fact of how this turned out for him personally. >> that's exactly it. this is a blockbuster as far as mcconnell's involvement. he is really livid over the fact that in his eyes he lost his position as majority leader because of the two senate seats in georgia that went democratic according to mcconnell because of the way that trump managed it or failed to manage it. all he did was go down there and express his grievances two times. so he's got a grudge to bear. monnell has never liked a lot of what trump has done but as
majority leader wanting to keep his minions in place he's gone along with it especially for some u.s. senators who really appreciated what trump was all about. for mcconnell to move over and say he is looking forward to this, that it may be an opportunity for the republicans to purge themselves of the trumpism if you will, this is big. what it means down the line in terms of other republican votes we don't know but this is big. it's a big, symbolic point. >> how does that open the flood gates for other republicans? does it give them implicit permission to, if mcconnell and liz chaney are saying open the gates for more republicans to say, okay. i'm not risking as much now if i do this? >> two answers here. first of all, yes. it gives them the green light if you will. you don't have to worry about honing any kind of line. just go do what you want to do. the other thing is, look. jessica, at the end of the day these guys all face election except for those that retire.
they are thinking what's it going to be like in 2022? has the wind changed? has the anti-trump element now become very, very fervent given what's happened over the last few days? if that's the case i want to get off of that horse and get on the other horse because i want to be on the right side when everything falls apart. so that is another big reason for a lot of these senators as well. >> we see the resolution as happening right now, voting on whether they should have that 25th amendment. you know, enacted. but pence sent a letter to pelosi saying that it's really meant for when a president is incapacitated because of a mental issue. what is the strategy there for pence now? >> well, first of all, pence is taking the easy way out. i'll tell you why. you read the 25th amendment it doesn't say it has to be a physical problem. it can be anything that leaves the president incapacitated. so pence has chosen to interpret it that way but that is not necessarily what it means. what it means for pence again,
thinking about his future, why should he put himself in harm's way? let the situation work its way out. let the democrats do what they want to do. i want to keep my hands clean because that way my options are protected. there is no reason for pence to go ahead and do what others might do or fail to do. let him stay clean is what his thoughts are so he can keep his options. >> what about average americans just watching all of this? first watching the capitol. now watching this and saying, okay. we've got just a week left. why are we going through all this? >> this is loik a wildfire rele americans now, 56-44 in f relea people accepting the biden presidency much more than they had in the past. you put all of these things
together and you can see the public lining up. this was an incredible event what we saw last wednesday. it was horrific. it had the president's hands all over it. if you like the event and there were soms the president's hands were all over it. if you found it horrific the president's hands were all over it. and so it's connected. that's what makes this impeachment effort so much different than the first impeachment effort. that was about something that happened early in the presidency. it was hard for people to understand. everybody saw this. everybody sees it day after day and with more and more video they see more and more stuff that just looks terrible. it was an attack on the united states and that is what so many people find offensive. >> larry, very quickly, all this talk about the president pardoning himself. where would that likely go? >> we don't know. there was a recommendation out of the department of justice several years ago that said it
wouldn't work. the president may try to find it. here's one other possibility i'm going to slip by right now. the president sees things going really bad. he cuts a deal at the end with pelosi and schumer to resign so that in exchange they decide not to go after him. it's a possibility. it may happen. the president's options are limited and the options are increasing every day. a lot to happen in the next few days. hold on to your hat. the city of berkeley always does things a bit differently and that is what we like about it. the latest twist ban the sale of new gas powered cars by 2027. >> reporter: it was back in september when governor gavin newsom announced a new environmental initiative setting a goal to eliminate gas only
vehicle engines by 2035. berkeley city council member kate harrison says berkeley can reach that goal even faster. >> we need a plan. we need to know when we'll get off these gas powered cars. >> harrison wanted to study this to see what it would take to ban cars that run on gas or diesel by 2027. used cars and the sale of trucks would not apply. >> i think we all have to recognize the challenge before us. this will not affect our sales tax once the transition is made. >> i'm not sure if 2027 is realistic. >> the mayor worries what this would mean for the city's car dealerships which each bring in a large chunk of the city's sales tax. >> our auto dealerships are important parts of our local economy. we need to do this in a way that is thoughtful. >> reporter: the manager at this honda dealership declined to talk on camera saying he was waiting to hear back from the city.
the mayor says if the city wants to tackle carbon emissions it needs to first convert its fleet of city owned vehicles to all electric. >> we also need to make our buses and other vehicles electric as well. >> councilmember harrison says she is going to refer city staff to look into this but says the goal is to set targets and have berkeley lead the country in the fight against climate change. >> we know this is happening. right now. we want to be at the front of the market. >> reporter: in berkeley, nbc bay area news. up next, pleading for a change. the bay area city asking the state to bend the rules and reopen outdoor dining.

down outdoor dining. they insist eating outside is safer than shopping, which is still allowed. health experts counter the dining tends to mix households which is extremely risky. >> it just seems like the way they're doing it is arbitrary. people getting punished are the mom and pops. this is the business my wife and i started, put our entire life savings into it, and we're not making enough to pay the rent. >> harvard researchers say the number of small businesses in marin county alone dropped by almost 40% over the course of 2020. >> seniors living in san francisco retirement homes are likely to sleep easier tonight after getting their first dose of the covid-19 vaccine. about 300 people at the san francisco tower senior center were vaccinated as well that is 90% of residents and 70% of the staff. >> we live in a place where death is prominent. they are old people and they

the race to get people vaccinated has hit a road block this time the widespread fear of needles. the journal of advanced nursing found about a quarter of all adults have a significant fear of needles. that's about 7% of adults. they say so afraid they actually refuse to get any type of shot. now health experts are offering up several suggestions to help people overcome their fear. they suggest drawing, meditating, counting things as they get shots. there is also the thing called the shot blocker which blocks the pain. they use that with kids. or just man up and do it. you have to do it. in just eight days president-elect joe biden will take office. now we're learning more about the white house, how it is gearing up. the white house has been the site of several covid-19 outbreaks during the pandemic so the staff will do a complete, thorough deep cleaning before the bidens move in. the cleaning is above and beyond what typically occurs during the

message. next, when you get the message you'll lce of answering basic questions e continue receiving benefit payments. the state says the process is under way for people collecting regular unemployment. but if your benefits ran out or you received pua the edd says it might take longer to get the extra $300 per week. first it has to put revised computer programming in place. if you've just been laid off or never applied it is important to get the ball rolling asap. do that online at edd.ca.gov. thank you. parents may lose out on some sleep but if their babies are born in 2020 they benefit from federal stimulus money. when new parents file their 2020 tax return those who qualify will receive a recovery tax rebate credit for that new baby. parents of adopted children also qualify. the irs website says the rebate
