6:22 pm
6:23 pm
6:24 pm
well, our own weather right now. the possibility of rain in our forecast this weekend. let's turn things over to meteorologist jeff ranieri. i know you've been watching an upcoming storm. >> not a lot of rainfall this weekend. but you can see the system offshore. the core of the shore is expected to head to the north. it's that bottom edge that could give us showers in our weekend forecast. let's detail saturday first. what you'll find is for tomorrow, it stays warm inland.
6:25 pm
we'll gradually start to see numbers trying to drop, though. 82 in the south bay. san francisco at 70. also the north bay at 83. the other thing besides the cooling temperatures, we'll find the high clouds continuing to increase across the bay. not a super sunny day throughout saturday's forecast. as we head throughout sunday, we'll have the slight chance of maybe some spotty showers. looks like the best chance would be marin, napa and sonoma counties in the north bay. we'll see temperatures around 83 degrees and a slight chance in san francisco with 69. tri-valley will have 82. south bay expecting 79 degrees. now, we have been, of course, following hurricane patricia. this storm system has already made landfall and moving ashore. there the storm is south of puerto vallarta. specifically for that area, what would it mean. rain 6 to 12 inches. winds gusting 60 to 100 miles per hour. the highest impact is mudslides and the possibility of flooding. i'm back with another full
6:26 pm
update on the exact patented storm in less than ten minutes. we want to show you a live picture of puerto vallarta now. the skies are dark, stormy and gloomy. still to come, more exact details on where hurricane patricia is right now and how people are preparing for the worst. a man shot by police in san leandro, how it escalated into gunfire and the impact it had on a nearby high school.
6:27 pm
6:28 pm
6:29 pm
==jees/2shot== tonight.. the millions of people hurricane patricia's path the calm the calm before the storm. hurricane patricia is bearing down on that hotspot for tourists. patricia is the one moving in. millions of people in hurricane patricia's path are doing what they can to get to safety. >> the storm could be catastrophic with winds potentially up to 200 miles an hour. >> okay. this is video from a noaa plane flying inside the eye of the storm. this is called a hurricane hunter. noaa is putting all hands-on deck to track this storm. >> meanwhile, on the ground, thousands have been evacuated. patricia touched down at 4:15 pacific time. it's in a resort town near 100 miles south of the resort town
6:30 pm
of puerto vallarta that we showed you the picture. airports and bus stops jammed with people trying to get out. as hurricane patricia moves into that area. it's expected to be a very, very dangerous category 5 hurricane as it goes through landfall and makes its way up. chief meteorologist jeff ranieri is following every single move of the hurricane. >> another important note, the storm system is the hurricane-force winds at the center of the storm that have been 150 to 200 miles per hour. they only extend out about 30 miles from the center of the storm. it's tightly compact. exactly where that eye of the storm goes will see the strongest winds. the way it looks now, puerto vallarta would be spared from stom of the strongest winds. they'll get tropical storm force action. winds as high in the 70 miles per hour range up to 90 miles per hour. the activity will be ramping up. but it won't be worse as where
6:31 pm
it made landfall a few hours ago. let get you the latest stat on this storm system. winds at 160 miles per hour. it has started to weaken. now that it has made landfall. still a powerful category 5. central pressure also in -- another sign of it starting to weaken. that's all relative. because it's still so powerful. where will this be headed? >> tonight, winds of 125 miles per hour. there's puerto vallarta. here is the exact track of it. you can see it's a near miss from some of this strongest wind. so they're going to get spared from that major lashing. but i still think they could have rainfall 6 to 12 inches and of course, wind damage as well. the hotels are taking those precautions for good reason. this storm system travels into texas this weekend for continued flooding issues. now, we showed you this earlier. but go ahead and check this out. the reason why a lot of the tourists were caught off guard is because the storm grew from 40 miles per hour to 200 miles per hour in just 36 hours. more on your full forecast

6:33 pm
not far from the school. officers say their goal was to dee escalate the situation. but they were forced to open fire when the man opened fire on them. the man survived and is in the hospital. the lockdown was lifted this morning around 10:30. after a fire in sassoon city, flames broke out at the village tree apartment complex on pin tail drive. people say they were startled awake and had to run to escape the fast moving flames. 12 units were damaged in the fire. the salvation army are helping those who live there. no word on what started that fire. they have spent three generations doing community service. we're talking about the guerrero family. >> they're being honored for that service and their personal success as the recipients of the award. the family of the year award. damian trujillo sat down with the guerreros.
6:34 pm
>> it began with the family business in tijuana. a hard working dapper businessman who believed family came first. but community was a close second. >> he was self-employed. if he didn't work, we didn't eat. >> with his wife, they picked up the entire family and moved to a foreign land. learned a new language. they landed in san jose. rolled up their sleeves and got to work. together they formed a legacy in the south bay. helping at church functions, feeding the hungry, always volunteering and making sure none of the kids got out of line. >> they remember coming home late one night and mom was waiting. >> she'll give me a hug and kept my hands and i'm glad you're home safely. >> i didn't realize she was actually smelling my clothes if i was smoking or my hands. she was on it. they were awake.

for long. ==vo== that's accord it turns out uber and lyft drivers don't share their cars for long. that's according to a new survey. drivers don't stay with their companies for long. in part because they don't make
6:41 pm
enough money. here's how it looks. most workers put in 30 hours a week. they make just under $1400 a month. now, when surveyed, more than half of the drivers had been with the company for only six months or less. a big day for your money. strong earns in the sec sector. various stocks led the way higher for most of the part. alpha bets, hit an all-time high today as the mountain dew search giant has strong earnings numbers. a jump nearly 8% today. amazon, facebook and -- pandora lost a third of its value after sub par earnings hit last night. jeff ranieri has been busy following a storm. >> the bigger one in mexico. >> both storms on the radar tonight. we're tracking our own chances of rainfall. two different chances in the next seven days and another
6:42 pm
update on hurricane patricia and the massive size of this storm. and san francisco mayor, ed lee,
6:43 pm
6:44 pm
is campaigning hard for proposition a -- the francisco is less than two weeks away. mayor ed lee is campaigning hard for the affordable housing bond measure. >> how does it work and how can it make more affordable homes? >> sam brock has more. >> lost in the melody of san francisco's mission district. amidst the humming motors. strollers and jumping new joints lingers the memory of what it was like to actually live here for some. like this woman, who moved out of the city five years ago but left her heart in the mission.
6:45 pm
>> couldn't afford it. my son should be able to live here. they were born here. san francisco. >> it's not fair. >> the housing phenomenon making it arguably the least affordable place in the country by some metrics has moved in like a cool fog blanketing people and places all over the city. >> finding any kind of housing is impossible. people don't answer you. >> it's not easy and it's not guaranteed. >> i'm going to see us build as much housing as i can. >> the housing bond will help. >> mayor ed lee pushed proposition a. it's a critical piece of a longer term solution to build and rehabilitate thousands of homes for low and middle income people from san francisco. >> would the proposition deliver on that promise? first, let's look at what's actually in the proposition. it does grant permission for san francisco to borrow up to $310
6:46 pm
million in bonds. it does not specify exactly how that money would be spent. it does create a blueprint for building new affordable units. fixing dilapidated ones and helping first-time home buyers. it does not guarantee a certain number of units. >> mayor lee has been the face of prop a. but his campaign office denied our request for an interview. we sat down with one of the city's most vocal advocates for affordable housing, the san francisco board of supervisors. >> he and the entire board of supervisors backs proposition a. >> every san francisco an deserves a place to call home. >> he describes it as a two-pronged approach. >> way too much of that public housing stock is dilapidated and in terrible, sometimes unlivable
6:47 pm
conditions. so it is incumbent on us to rehabilitate and shore up that existing housing stock in addition to building new units. >> how much stock can prop a really supply? we asked the city to crunch some numbers for us. in the last decade, san francisco created or preserved 8,000 units of multifamily affordable housing at a cost of $155,000 per unit. so take $310 million in bond money, divide it by 155,000 per unit and you get a grand total of 2,000 units, new and rehabilitated. a thousand of each. back in the mission district, the promise of prop a hangs like a token on this building window surrounded by cheap restaurants and highly sought after real estate. given the scale of the housing problem, you might be hard-pressed to find someone who would call 2,000 units a token gesture. >> it's hope.
6:48 pm
fingers crossed. maybe it's to help others. not only for me, but for my kids for the future. >> mayor lee says the measure will help build new homes without raising taxes. that's not entirely true. prop a would raise property taxes for homeowners. about 80 bucks a year for each million dollars of property that you own. we should note that we looked for critics in prop a in city government and the nonprofit sector and we were hard-pressed to find anyone against this measure. for reality check, i'm sam brock. back to you. thanks so much, sam. let's put our focus back on hurricane patricia and the impact it's having not only in mexico but an impact in the united states. especially in texas. >> that's right. they're getting flooding right now. as that storm system at least the remnants of it arrive this weekend, we're talking about more flooding continuing in texas. we've learned to put a new perspective on the size of the storm system. if you missed this earlier, it is eye opening on how massive
6:49 pm
