6:00 am
gianna shows us the spots you want to avoid. >> falling rain, falling snow and falling trees, i have the round up of damage done in the north bay. and the threat for mudslides, not over yet. the experts waiting to survey the damage and when they hope to get the go ahead. good morning. it's wednesday, january 27th. a busy morning. >> a quieter scene this morning as you wake up. we start our storm watch with a live look across the bay area. here is san jose and oakland right now. you can see that storm is passing through because the roads are still wet. overnight a much different story, heavy rain and whipping winds. >> this is new video from san francisco this morning where heavy rain water caused flooding across some of the city's highways. carson southbound i-80 driving through the high water. >> we have live team coverage all morning long.
6:01 am
the crews spread out tracking conditions from north to south. we start with mary tracking the remnants of this storm. mary. the good news for you. the worst is over. that high intensity, heavy rain now out of our area. it did move fast. it dropped about one to three and a half inches of rain as it pushed through the bay area. you can see on high definition doppler all of that heavy rain well to the south and the east. we are still dealing wet weather. looking at light to moderate rain in spots over san francisco. the golden gate at the bayview district, embarcadero and over the bay bridge light rain and moderate rain over the richmond, san rafael bridge this morning and into vallejo. light rain from morgan hill down through gilroy. we are looking at more wet weather as we head through the day. off and on rain for the rest of
6:02 am
your wednesday into thursday. we have several storm reports wind damage to flash flooding because of this river event. with more of that rain on the way, again off and on for today and tomorrow that flash flood watch that remains in effect until thursday afternoon for the east bay hills and santa cruz mountains. watching that for you. that high wind warning in effect for san francisco and the entire coast as well as solano until 7:00 a.m. and a wind advisory for the rest of the bay area. let's walk you through today and what you can expect. so as you can see that scattered activity as we go through the afternoon, could see some sun breaks and also more showers in the forecast. here we are at 3:00 p.m. and then stopping the clock again at 8 tonight. we are likely going to have a second wave of light to moderate rain as we look to the rest of today, tonight into tomorrow. crews waiting for the all clear. ann joins us live from the command post this morning with
6:03 am
the latest out there. >> a lot of people hoping this all clear is going to come later on this morning. at this point emergency officials have not gotten any reports of mudslides. that was the big fear. there have been several reports of downed trees and downed power lines and a lot of these areas, neighborhoods that people haven't been into yet. they don't know exactly what they are facing but it stopped raining several hours ago and it's not very windy. that's good news. check out what we saw overnight though. this is video of the rainfalling down. buckets at times and in the south bay. this is the storm that put more than 5,000 people near the burn scars here in the santa cruz mountains under mandatory evacuation orders. the heaviest part of the storm has passed but the people still can't go home. >> we need to wait until the rainfall rates come down and be
6:04 am
given the all clear. >> this is the area of concern. all the areas burned last year. the fire basically changed the chemistry of the soil. it's not able to absorb water anymore. the concern is that it could start to fall down any hillside at any point when it comes to the soil we have been seeing. the advisory in -- watch rather in effect here. we are not out of the woods. the national weather service, other county officials are going to put all their heads together and try to figure out if the danger has passed and of course we will keep you posted. live in felton, back to you. >> and you talked about that heavy rain. how was that trek to the mountains for you? >> it was not good. either the rain wasn't horrible but its that flash flooding
6:05 am
that -- the wet roadways that gianna has been telling us about. it's caused trouble already. just you are driving down the highway. that's a concern for anyone out and about. >> safety is key. thank you. out to the north bay, emily turner is live. >> it was a close call for one family here in the mobile home park. you can see what's left of the tree that fell on this mobile home. it happened about 9:00 last night. that's when the winds were really whipping and the rain was just coming down and this tree -- it's a 100-foot plus poplar tree that came down and fell on the back side of this mobil, home which i'm told is the bedroom. two people were inside but one
6:06 am
of them -- specifically the woman was in the bedroom at the time the tree fell. she was lying down in the bed when it burst through the roof and then stopped just feet from her face which you can only imagine how terrifying that must have been. the mobile home has been red tagged. i'm sure it's getting a lot of water damage as a result of that hole from the tree. the family is safe and now spending the night with other family members. there isn't any major damage in the north bay. >> we understand there's the potential of the river is likely going to staal out over them and that's the kind of fear we have here. we are fortunate it looked like the storm we had here pushed through relatively quickly. again it's like fire season where, you know, we up tapped here with more resources just like we would for a red flag warning day in anticipation of
6:07 am
a potential mudslide or weather related event here. >> so certainly a sigh of relief this morning and in sonoma the operations center has been shut down early which is great news. that bodes well. there were evacuations in napa county, in the burn scar there but so far no reports of any mudslides there either. there was snow in some of the higher elevations which has proved to have interesting pictures and video. other than that really the major take away is power outages. pg&e said there are about 10,000 people without power this morning in north bay. taking a live look at the bay bridge where all lanes have now reopened after a jackknifed big rig crash. this was the scene last night shortly before ten near the eastbound direction at the treasure island off ramp. the chp said a strong winds are to blame. no word on any injuries. let's get to traffic now and this is just the first
6:08 am
jackknifed big rig overnight. >> we have had a couple this morning as well. one in castro valley on 580. that's now clear. we have this trouble spot in the south bay involving a jackknifed big rig. it is a traffic alert. its been out there since about three this morning. it's taking some time to clear this out of the roadway. there's a large fuel spill in lanes. it'll take time. give yourself a few extra minute itself you are traveling through that area. that connector road is closed. you will have to use the alternate. possibly 880 from 101 may work better. also take a look at traffic. we are tracking quite a few brake lights. we have a couple of crashes in and around that area causing a back up as you head out of san martin it to morgan hill. a new accident in to the traffic center this is a long highway 1 near the coast.
6:09 am
it's blocking lanes plus flooding reported in and around that area as well. >> thank you. live in san jose this morning, crews are keeping a close eye on the guadalupe river. officials say that residents should prepare to evacuate if floodwaters rise. if evacuations are called residents should head to the evacuation location at camden community center. it opened at midnight. right now thousands are without power across the bay area but it's getting better. power has been restored to more than 15,000 people. this pg&e map shows the largest outages are in the east and south bays with more than 10,000 customers in the dark. about 27,000 are in the dark across the entire region. new video out of napa. you can see the roads packed with snow. car that appears to be sliding, a scene you don't normally see along highway 75. just a few miles from lake county. this is not in the sierra.
6:10 am
it is sonoma county. this video was shot along the alexander valley at just 1300 feet. we saw rare snow fall in the mountains above santa cruz. this is what it looked like near highway 35 and highway 9 late last night. check out this viewer photograph we received overnight from oakland where powerful wind gusts knocked down a tree in front of a home. you can see it's made quite a mess with large branches, scattered around the home. and we want to see your pictures and videos of any storm damage. share them on social media using the hash tag kpix. the time is now 6:10. the search for the new top cop. >> and one controversial name now off the list. that's next. that high intensity rainfall with the river now out of our area but still we are looking at some light to moderate rain over the bay
6:11 am

6:31 am
richmond, san rafael bridge. pushing over concord and walnut creek and then down to the south bay. you can see along 101 light to moderate rain. as we walk you through the day, here we are at four in the afternoon. you can see some more light rain in spots. the afternoon and for tonight into tomorrow morning. we are looking at a second wave moving in but not that intense rainfall that we just saw. that's good news. the heaviest rain out. still looking at more wet weather as we head through today into tomorrow. that is the reason why that flash flood watch still in effect for the east bay hills and the santa cruz mountains. let's go live to ann who is
6:32 am
live in felton. really watching the czu burn scar area. the good news, ann. they had a flash flood warning that was in effect. they still have a watch in effect for the czu lightning burn scar area. it hasn't rained since three in the morning. now once the sun comes up, they will be able to figure out if there were any slides overnight. so far none have been reported. there have been reports of downed trees and downed power lines. while it's not raining now. overnight hours around midnight. 1:00 a.m. really coming down here in the santa cruz mountains.

6:34 am
with friends and family. again, just waiting to find out if their house is still standing which by all the information we have right now, all of them are. let's go over to traffic with more on the roadways. it is -- down here from san francisco. . we have been dealing a lot of flooding especially in the south bay. i will show you the overview of the map. those road closures will remain in effect. we have been tracking a traffic alert on 680 over toward 1o 1, all lanes clear from an earlier crash involving a jackknifed big rig. just north of there, we have
6:35 am
two new accidents just reported in the south bay. one south 101. things still a little busy. . very close call. the family who lives in this mobile home were very lucky. i will hop out of the way so you can see what i'm talking about. the remnants of that tree right there basically fell down last night about 9:00. that was really in the bulk of the storm when it was so windy and the rain was coming down. that 100-foot tree, there's a row of them behind this house. it fell down into the mobil, home and that home has been red tagged. unfortunately it fell down on the back -- on the bedroom. there were two people home at the time. one was a woman. she was in bed and we are told that the tree came crashing
6:36 am
through the roof and then stopped just feet from her face which you can only imagine how scary that must have been last night. everybody is okay. nobody was hurt. the same cannot be said for the home itself. its been red tagged because of the damage and it's probably only gotten worse as that rain fell down through the roof. other than this a few other trees downed, power outrages, really the north bay made out a lot better than they could have. >> the goal is to not create fear after panic but to educate the community and this was the best case situation. that a lot of effort went into preparing for potentially a significant event.
6:37 am
. >> there were trees down, also snow in some of the higher elevations and a significant amount of snow at that, not just a light dusting. the ground was white. there was also an evacuation in napa as result of flash flood warnings and the potential for debris flows. reporting live. >> a lot going on, a lot of damage and you mentioned that hole in that house with the rain coming down, it just causes even more damage. when we talked to you you could hear that tapping and you could tell the rain was coming down. seems to have lightened up. >> it has. there were a couple of bands that passed through early this morning. so far we are kind of at a break. you can see the moon through the clouds. hopefully there will be enough time for things to dry out and the family can come back and
6:38 am
get their stuff out but they won't be staying here for some time. >> looks like it. thank you. right now thousands without power across the bay area. here is the latest update, power has been restored to more than 15,000 people so far, this pg&e map shows the largest outages are in the east and south bays with more than 10,000 customers in the dark in both of those areas. about 27,000 are in the dark across the entire region. here is a live look at sfo this morning where one arriving flight had to be diverted due to the extreme weather conditions last night. it was redirected to oakland and when the weather cleared out, it went back to sfo. there were a few late arrivals as well. the oakland fire department's swift water team is ready for any potential rescues. they spent the night preparing and checking their gear and boats. reminding everybody to always listen to the warnings. >> you are not replaceable. things are replaceable.
6:39 am
homes are if they ask you to evacuate so that you are free and clear of the area that's in potential danger that's the best thing that you can do. >> download the kpix5app as we monday tomorrow the storm. it gives you easy 4 access to cbsn bay area and newscasts. 6:39. other news, going live to wall street. here is a look at the numbers. you can see the dow is down. close to 500 points. it's a big day though for bay area tech with earning season in full swing. today tesla, apple and facebook all due to release their 4th quarter reports. other headlines the white house is ramping up the vaccine effort by shipping out ten million doses a week. they also plan to purchase more. the long awaited investigation into where the coronavirus started will soon start in china. a team are due to end their
