20 days. kentfield's total is now over 24 inches. san francisco over 16. redwood city, 14.88, the south bay ranging from four to 15 inches. that's three to five times our typical january rain for the entire month. so we're way off the mark. you can see the floodwaters tonight even though our storm is exiting because the ground is so saturated. and the creeks and rivers are still running high and fast and you may encounter street flooding where the water is trying to recede. aware seeing rainfall through the santa cruz mountains. that will keep it wet through sacks:37. as we move ahead into tomorrow, yes, there is sun in the forecast but we'll have to get over the chance of fog in the morning. i want you to watch out form.
and the cold start. look at that. we'll have the seven-day forecast coming up in 15 minutes. thank you. somefrightening moments for an east bay family. >> their story and the story of others who are feeling the fallout from the storm. >> i've never experienced anything like this in my life. i have no idea what we'll do. >> reporter: it is a situation the long-time berkeley resident marjorie cruz never thought she would be faced with. she and her husband woke up to a nightmare outside their side door. >> he woke up and was making his coffee and he noticed it was extra dark. he looked out at the door on the side of the house and there was about four feat of mud in front of the door. that's when he realized we had a major problem. >> the mud had made its way inside the house. as the dirt moved, firefighters
evacuated seven other houses down hill. >> the concern is the mudslide continues to grow. >> mud can be more damaging. it seem like it is slow-moving but it can cause big damage wefrlt don't want to take any risk with at least ourselves. we'll see what happens with our house. hopefully it stays safe. >> reporter: just a few miles away in the oakland hills, another muddy scene. neighbors say this hillside started sliding about 3:00 this morning. eventually, blanketing the road. the driver of this car learned the hard way. mini coopers and mud not a good mix. >> if you see a mudslide, don't try to drive around it. i did. it was a mistake. >> reporter: they're trying to figure out what to do next. >> i'm just thankful that we're alive and we survived it. and i'm thankful that no one
else has been hurt. crews say they have to be careful to not have this hillside move any more. nbc bay area news. >> a lot of work ahead for all those crews. thank you. something we haven't seen for years is probably some excitement and a little worry. south bay reservoirs are spilling over from the constant rain and run-off. robert handa joins us from near los gatos. crowds have been gathering all day to see the water flow. >> reporter: that's true. people have been gathering and the water is certainly flowing. behind me is what people have been coming to look at. it was a little easier to see and might have been surging a bit more earlier today. but the lexington reservoir began spilling over today. the water system knew this was coming and cleared room on sunday.
the water district is releasing about 3,200 gallons a second at this reservoir. enough to prevent overflow here and on the los gatos trail. the spillway is just as impressive here. it has been spilling over for days. people who came out to watch the water say the scenic spillway is a bitter sweet experience. >> a lot of our neighbors had to be evacuated this past week. it had been a tough time. so i hope aware done now. i hope that the snow pack takes care of the rest of the drought and we've had enough of the rain. >> reporter: we definitely heard a mix of opinions on that. the water district says at left a four reservoirs have been spilling over. but with the area's largest reservoir still out of commission for earthquake retrofitting, we're still a long way from solving our drought
problems. live at lexington reservoir. nbc bay area news. >> thank you very much, robert. let's show you some video of fort funston. you're looking at a military sick from fell from the cliff above. the rain-soaked sand caused the structure to erode. san francisco authorities tweeted out to be careful around the cliffs as they dray out. it was the first to establish a military base in the 1800s. that's why there is that military equipment out there. two families were forced out of their homes in belmont. it happened over the weekend but it is still causing problems today. the mud slide was something many in the area wanted to see for themselves. it is closed this road for three days now. it gave way on saturday. fortunately, no one was hurt.
>> you can see the mud sliding off the wall. >> reporter: collin lives a few houses away. >> we never had this kind of slide. >> reporter: both these homes have been red-tagged temporarily until the city and jaers surveyed the area. one of the homeowners who didn't want to speak on camera wants to get back in his house and he's trying to work with the city to get there. neighbors are concerned. >> i wanted to see if the neighbors need any help. it's incredibly sad. >> reporter: others say they've never seen anything like it. there are several smaller slads in neighbors' back yards. >> this is the worst. in the 20 years i've been here, this is the worst. too much rain in too short a time. >> reporter: we talked and reached out to officials to find out the time line. they're saying it is an indefinite closure. nbc bay area news. >> all right, thank you.

so you can see the doppler radar and the other radar combined and the storm we've had over the last 24 hours, now hitting central and southern california well the slight chance of spot ty areas of rain. we're on the downward side of this. i wanted to look back in history. san francisco is a good starting point because the records go back so far, bark to the 1800s. in january, 8.15 inches. well above the average. 4.53. now it is the 25th wettest january on ready ro. it is impressive when you see how far we've gone but there have been plenty of years when it goes even higher. back in 1862, with 24.36 inches in just one month. so that was about two inches a day in 1862. so thankfully, no numbers like that.
but of course, we know our storms turn deadly and there is so much damage to clean up from. so with storm ranger, there is a lot of moisture in the mid levels. we are expecting to dry out. no rain expected tonight but what i want to you keep your eye on, the central vall. that's fog that we will likely see built in. a little for santa clara as we start tomorrow morning. then we get over that fog tomorrow morning, we're setting ourselves up with sunshine and it will be so nice tomorrow. make sure to layer up and have the heavy jacket. upper0s in the east bay. san francisco, afraid. and right there in the north bay, 35. day time highs tomorrow, pretty much the same in the micro climate. notice the winds. very calm.
thats the other break we're getting after so much wind, taking down trees. it will be a lot calmer. the peninsula has 53 in daly city. the north bay, 55 here in santa rosa. the next storm system starts to get here around 2:00 on wednesday. it will move pretty quick, keeping rain wednesday night. and it is out of here on thursday's forecast. the totals, trace amounts to a half an inch. not looking at the high, high totals. after that, sunshine, coming in strong. thursday, friday, saturday, sunday, great if you have any repairs you need to schedule or just for your own mental wellness. it has been a long four weeks without the sun so this will be great to get back. >> this is nice. taking a break. >> yeah. we needed it but get out of

mt. hamilton is just east of san jose, just over 4200 feet at the peak. in pittsburg, several people had to be rescued. the creek sent water into the streets and into a low-lying neighborhood nearby. there was flooding and it triggered evacuations. first responders used boats to get grateful residents to dry ground. >> my houseas flooded so that's bad. but the ride here was good. >> she's being an optimist. the center was used as an emergency shelter for anyone who needed it. the city workers will be onsite overnight to monitor things. this has been such a pain on the roadways. after weeks of rain in the bay area, there are potholes. giant potholes everywhere. >> everywhere. >> other dangers, too. lots of bay area drivers have the damaged cars to prove it.

up a temporary fix. >> the focus is on getting roads open. that's the safest thing. when you have more routes open than traffic flowing better, emergency vehicles can get where they need to go. so that's our focus. and we'll be improving on these as the weather gets better. >> reporter: caltrans says last january, they found about 300 potholes for the whole month in this area. they say so far, this january, halfway through the month, they've already found more than 400. in san jose, scott budman, nbc bay area news. up next, we're only halfway through the first month of 2023. but we're looking ahead to summer of 2024 and the next olympic games. how is paris business can happen anytime, anywhere. so help yours thrive and stay connected with the comcast business complete connectivity solution. it's the largest, fastest, reliable network. advanced gig speed wifi.
