4:00 pm
looich, from the kgo tv broadcast center, this is abc 7 news. >> good afternoon, everybody. >> another storm is moving through the bay area right now. this is rain from just a short time ago in san francisco. police tweeted out this picture from alamo drive showing a chain reaction accident on those forked roads. fortunately, no one was hurt. >> this is from our emoryville camera. it's cloudy, it's raining, i looked outside from our san francisco studios. it was pouring. >> the rain just keeps oncomi come ing. we've got rain spread across most of the area.
4:01 pm
let's look at the heaviest of rain and a line of downpours reaching north eastward. we've got light to moderate up in the delta area here. notice the heavy rain. we've got another area of lighter rain pushing into the north bay right now. storm impact scale which we used to indicate the intensity of storms, we rank storms 1 through 5, numerically. one is a light storm. five is a severe storm. right now, we're in the midst of a storm ranking number one expecteding less than half an inch of rain fall. however, the rain does keep on coming. it will be wet just about everywhere rater in the evening hours. little pockets of showers will follow through the north bay later tonight.
4:02 pm
>> i'll have our first look at the weather in just a few minutes. >> the rain hit the north bay first, but it's just a drop in the bucket for the drought. >> the rain is exactly what we need in a drought. these rainstorms are consistent. they're not causing flooding. they're not causing mud slides. but we have a long way to go. >> the beginning of the rainy season, we've accumulated about half of what we need to be full.
4:03 pm
>> despite the steady storms, if drout is not a local phenomenon. just because the reservoirs flare up, disappearing ground water remains this season. >> the way ground water gets into the ground provides water for aquifers that can take years for what we've withdrawn out of it to actually get back into the ground. >> if you're looking at it now live in petaluma, it's going back into san francisco bay, eventually. even if the reservoirs fill, this is not over because we have the ground water issue to consider. that's going to take a lot longer. this drought is not local. it is state wide. there are regulations that means to cause an end to this drout, you're still going to have to ask for a drink of water in restaurants. >> we have four years of drought to recover from.
4:04 pm

4:06 pm
pros, you don't know if you have this deep of a library, but whatever you have, it comes up without even thinking about it. for colin to be that kind of a player, is to be in the classroom. if chip is serious about making this marriage work, colin is going to have to do some serious school work over the next 6 months. >> and steve is exactly right. that's the key. coming up at 5:00, the end reaction. some are happy about the hiring, some are not. reporting live, colin rush, abc 7 news. >> it is decidedly mixed, that's for sure. >> well, the question is really, is it going to be a success? that's what fans really want. >> i think it's going to be one or the other. this is going to be fantastic -- >> that's not really the answer i'm going for. >> it could be fantastic and the 49ers are going to go flying up and down the field at warped speed or this is going to be an unmitigated disaster.
4:07 pm
you would hope that chip kelly has learned he can't walk in and be a dictator and just have everybody bow down. oh, he's here, he's arrived, the messiah. what's interesting is that the owner went from jim harbaugh who is a great coach to jimmy t that everybody loved him and couldn't win games to another coach who has a tiffic offensive line but isn't going to win mr. congeniality. >> this is all happening before superbowl 50. >> the golden anniversary superbowl will reach new heights and it will reach the benefit and face some challenges as well. >> abc 7 news reporter carolyn tyler joins us live. >> reporter: well, they expect up to a million people to pour into san francisco.

4:09 pm
festivities will be a high security event, meaning those who live near the foot print of superbowl city may need special credentials just to get into their neighborhood and those who park cars in nearby garages, like embarkdero four, will face daily bomb sweeps. >> i do think it's an awfully long time to close streets and reroute commuters and really stress the residents. >> i think if everybody pulls together, i'm sure we can get through it. kind of looking forward to when it's over. but it's a great opportunity. >> and when it's over, the city and its residents will analyze the cost and the benefit. in san francisco, carolyn tyler, abc 7 news. >> in san francisco today, a judge heard arguments over whether to require a catholic hospital to allow a woman to get her tubes tied. the company's mercy medical center in reading denied the procedure because it operates under catholic religious
