rocking is no joke. people, furniture, all of it knocked around, furniture sliding across the rooms. rescue crews are working under extremely difficult circumstances. so, using lifeboats isn't an option in the choppy waters. helicopters have been called in to hoist the passengers out. that's what's taking so long. they can only do it one by one. there are 1300 on board. shepherd is from rio vista. one of 915 passengers there. and as of tonight, it was shepherd's last tweet of passengers sleeping on the floor of the station. nearby hallways or small utility closets. a lot of passengers had the tie themselves to chairs and tables waiting to be rescued. this rescue operation will be slow. it will drag on for hours. right now, it is not clear

to counteract and counterpoint everything that is being said by him anywhere under any circumstances. >> reporter: melissa caen, kpix5. a member of the republican national committee from california says the completion of the report is a moment of vindication for the president. >> and, it probably is the best thing that helped trump's reelection. i don't think a lot of people anticipated that. but when you have 100% vindication and there is nothing there, no more indictments, the report is closed down. nothing about collusion. absolutely zero. this really puts a lot of people embarrassed. but it is great for trump and he's going to use it. >> he also says in his opinion, the entire report from robert mueller should be released. senator bernie sanders will be in san francisco tomorrow as he makes a second bid for the presidency. folding chairs and the stage is set at fort mason. the final stop by mr. sanders on a three city tour of california. he has already held rallies this weekend in san diego and los angeles. and, now his bay area

that the local community can actually have a say in what happens at the palace and what the future holds. >> reporter: one of the reasons there is so much interest in the property is its size. it is almost 70 acres. it has 250,000 square feet of event space and a 14,000 seat amphitheater. >> it is right now being very underutilized. the community has wanted something to happen with that land for a long time. >> reporter: paterson worries if a local board takes control, they will only look at the value of the real estate that hosts everything from the dog shows to the christmas fair. then there is history on the box office wall. the signatures of some of the greatest of our time. all performing at the cow palace. >> there are lots of other places to build houses. you don't need to bulldoze history and an important
