5:01 am
covers this. >> we will start with our meteorologist, mike nicco. >> long time no see, huh? good to see you this early in the morning. >> yeah. >> in all seriousness, let's talk about what is going on. i put the flash flood warning and some of the other warnings, flash flood occurring in san martin, and below edmundson avenue is flooding right now and will continue to flood. just up the road a little bit, the guadalupe river, we are going to have flooding there until 11:15. and then let's head up to the north bay, what we are seeing around the pen grove area, and the gauge saying the creeks will push out of their local banks if
5:02 am
they have not already. and then from marin county up 101 from mill valley, and we keep heading north and some of the heaviest rain over the russian river. that's heavy and intense rain, and what that means is more pounding on the roadways. that's where the heaviest of rain will be over the next couple hours. you will see rains across the rest of our neighbors, and walnut creek, i had an accident happen before my eyes this morning, and i will tell you more about that coming up. the heaviest rains in the north bay and then central bay and then south bay, and more on that coming up. >> as you said, the north bay is the one being pounded all morning long. >> yeah, so often the case the storms hit the north bay first. >> and amy, right now, they are getting a break from the rain?
5:03 am
>> reporter: good morning, dan. we are getting wet but not pounded. we are on sir francis boulevard at highway 101. streets are wet and there's standing water here and there, and it will sneak up on you and it's dark out, so it's worth slowing down to be extremely careful, and not a lot of cars out this morning and quiet on the highways and a lot of people got the word this is a good morning to stay in, and chp is juggle calls for service right now, and they said nothing major, and it's a subjective term, so it's hard to classify -- feels like the rain is picking up as i stand here. nothing too tragic to report, and they say the reporting -- responding to the typical stuff you would get in weather like this, a spinout here and there, and lucas drive is closed because of a tree down, and we
5:04 am
will wander the north bay to show you what conditions are like. life in san rafael, amy the weather is causing big headaches for drivers, and melanie woodrow is live with what she is seeing there. >> reporter: dan, we had been seeing a tree that was down blocking the onramp here to 280, and a eucalyptus tree like one of these that you see right here. the call came in at 2:00 a.m., and we have video to show you what it looked like, a fallen eucalyptus tree that was dropping the on-ramp to 280 here in burlingame. this was one of more than 35 incidents we have seen this
5:05 am
more, and we have been checking the chp incident log, and lots of little accidents across the bay area, and there are more serious ones like this, a tree blocking the on-ramp, and crews are out and prepared and responding quickly. by the time we arrived this morning at about 4:45, the on-ramp was already back open and we are seeing a couple remaining orange cones, but they had removed the branches and that tree, and of course your best bet this morning is to stay home if you can, and if you have to go out, of course, to be extremely careful. live in burlingame. we have seen a number of crashes overnight, including one that mike saw himself coming in, and one has a remarkable ending. >> hard to believe nobody was
5:06 am
hurt. >> weather likely to blame for this one although police are still investigating this one. this is at 280 and highway 1 a short time ago, and highway patrol firefighters and the driver himself flip over that suv with their bare hands, and the reason they did this, is there was a one-hour delay, and no word on injuries, and based on the video, any driver and any occupants are fine considering they were able to get the car flipped up right, and the car had significant damage to the side, and the roads are slick out there. pg & e crews working as quick as possible to restore power to hundreds of customers this morning. here's a look at the out ridge map that, and the green dots are representing areas where customers are without electricity now. the crews are moving quickly, just two hours ago 6,000 were

5:08 am
>> her husband was okay, but, of course, devastated. at a nearby canyon woods, the tree's lower branches dropped and were hitting cars as they passed beneath. that's pretty dangerous. firefighters deemed it unsafe. >> we expect to see more of this as the day goes on. it's the tree that holly just mentioned. closed from westgate drive to nicasio valley row. crews have been working through the night to remove this tree. the ma rain county swift water rescue team is ready in case they are needed. they tweeted out these photos saying they are prepared for an active morning. an area of concern is where the loma fire left burn scars in the santa cruz mountains, and residents have been preparing for the wind and rain in an area that could see mudslides and debris flows now that the area

5:34 am
really probably created flooding that you might run into this morning if you are out and about, and that's what the chp says, you have to be very careful about. if you are going anywhere near 60 miles per hour or going over that, you are going too fast in this weather. if you over compensate with that steering wheel and with pumping the brakes you could end up spinning out and facing the wrong way, so take it slow, be calm, and just take your foot off of the gas and try to ease your way through it, and hope that those tires are in good shape and going to get you through. standing water is the issue that people need to look out for, and officers say it happens, and trash gathers up around the storm drains and blocks them, and so officials will try to be out and clear things as well as they can, and they are trying to keep things safe this morning
5:35 am

5:36 am
touch a downed power line. what do you do if a power line actually hits your car? here are those tips. you want to stay inside your vehicle, and do not get out because the ground near you could be energized. honk your horn to get peoplpeop attention nearby, and call 911, and wait for emergency crews. if a fire starts then you have to get out, and in that case pg & e suggests you remove any loose clothing and jump out of your car as far as possible and shuffle away instead of picking up your feet, and grant it a lot to think about if you are in an emergency situation, and it's something to put on your radar and know. >> maybe just don't go out and about. officials are warning drivers of flooded roads today, if you don't have to drive anywhere, you are advised to stay off the roads to prevent accidents or your car getting stuck in
5:37 am
