water on the i-280 north, just coming up on farm hill boulevard. there was enough debris in the road that chp felt compelled to shut down the entire 20 northbound for a little while. they were able to get a couple of lanes open and now there are three lanes open and what we have now is the situation where you see a lot of trucks up there. and what you see also going on is on the hillside, there appears to be a little bit of debris. what in fact, has happened on the top of the hill there has been a rather large gash torn out, apparehtly by water that was being tested in the pg&e hydro test. now brian swanson, the spokesperson is down here, but he hasn't returned any calls yet, but i think he is still trying to figure out what is going on. it's a fairly significant mess. three of the four lanes are open and the 280 is moving forward and there is not really much of a back-up as opposed to earlier. the situation is very fluid and

woodside. what is the latest, tom? >> reporter: this is pretty amazing. what happened was pg&e was apparently conducting one of those hydro test where's they put water into the pipe and then they pressure it up to almost its bursting pressure to make sure it won't spring a leak at lower pressures burb in this case it ripped a hole in the pipe and that ejected all kinds of water and a lot of debris. rock and dirt and things like that, directly onto interstate 280 north that caused a short closure of the entire northbound lanes until the chp could figure it it out. the water was ejected innocent ed instant instantaneously from the pipe. the purpose is to find the weaknesses in the pipe at pressures way above where they normally operate, but in this
case the pipe completely lost it and as a result we did have a lot of stuff on the freeway. three of the four northbound lanes are open and traffic is flowing smoothly and we're told it could be opened as early as 6:00. i don't believe that with all the cones and vehicles identity here. my guess is that it will be later, but there is no real obstruction going north on the 280 and absolutely none going south. that is the status now with a hydrostatic pipe bursting with a gash that ejected water and all kinds of rock and debris onto the freeway. reporting live, tom vacar, ktvu, channel 2 news. tom, you are partially answered a question i had. you said the water pressure is much higher than would have been in that pipeline had it been natural gas. do you know whether or not this pipe is one of those 60-plus- year-old pipes we have been hearing about that pg&e has? >> reporter: well certainly an older pipe and it's a pipe that is a main transmission pipe. what is important about that is
that these pipes have to be tested and have to be really running in the next 60 days or so, because when the cold weather really sets in, they need to run gas through the pipes. so they are testing 150 miles of the most critical pipes, this being one of them. they found some problems earlier over off of the 101 they found a problem, 1 millimeter hole in a pipe there that they are repairing. there was the big failure in bakessersfield and this is a big failure near woodside. so indeed that is exactly what they are doing and we'll know more and my colleague patti lee will pick this up and you will hear more from her later on. tam vacar, ktvu channel 2 news. thank you, fork update, tom. let's switch gears and turn to mark tamayo and the weather. >> at least we did have a little bit of ray break in the action over the next few days with cold mornings out there, but skies becoming partly cloudy into the afternoon. right now the maps i can show you on live stormtracker 2, the
bulk of the storm that moved through the bay area yesterday is heading down to southern california. not a lot to show you on the radar right now. lingering showers around fairfield and you can see still activity mainly to the south of gilroy. that cell is dissipating rapidly. forecast headlines for tonight, partly cloudy skies and temperatures on the chilly side. tomorrow, a sun cloud mix into the afternoon and extended forecast, more rain clouds will push back into the bay area forecast we had that cold front move across the bay area last night and cold, unstable air pushed through the area today. as a result we had clear skies and clouds and even a few isolated thunderstorms. you can see as we take into this homer, homer strengthens and as a result the stormtrack
