sight in the bay area this morning: a very good monday morning to you. it is 7:56. i'm laura garcia-cannon. it's raining, but it is also leaving some roads semisubmerged and slowing things down during the morning commute. the rain left standing water outside the lawrence expressway approaching 101 and the wet weather may have played a role in interstate 280 in the off-ramp. chp is warning everyone to take a little extra time and to take things slow. the wet weather also keeping pg&e crews busy. more than 7,000 customers lost power at one point or another across the bay area this morning. it was our first, i guess, major storm, right, kari? >> yes. it is finally tapering off to the north bay approaching the south bay. expect more of these downpours and heavy rain and the slow commute as you head out this morning.
7:57 am
and we've had anywhere from about a half of an inch to over an inch of rain for parts of the east bay, as you start out this morning it's in the 50s and will only make it into the mid-60s this afternoon. let's check in now with mike to see how it looks for the morning commute. >> we have that rain you're talking about and also complicating things and not the water on the road and although that makes you slippery. we have lumber across the road. this is south 101 down the hill toward lincoln and that's where we have reports of wood all of the way across highway 101 in your commute direction and the map will show you sensors and it is already out of nevada and highway 37 and that was made to a slow start because of a crash around north san pedro early this morning. a very slow drive down the east shore freeway and a lot of rain with slick conditions and watch it all over the bay and both sides of 808 and 101 along the san mateo bridge and we're kicking in with smaller points and flooding off of 280 and 87 and 101.

8:16 am
the southwest, and 80s through texas and 80 into the southeast and 90s in central florida. we are looking for more heavy rain through the southeast, mid-atlantic states, and that's as far north as it gets. plenty of sunshine through the great lakes. again, mountain snows as you get through the cascades and on into the northern rockies. wet weather and windy conditions through southern california. that's what's going on around good morning. i'm meteorologist kari hall tracking the rain as it continues to move to the south. it is clearing for the north bay but we're seeing some of the heavier rain shifting over towards the peninsula as well as the east bay and the south bay. we'll see this continuing for at least another hour or two. and then it will be wrapping up. our temperatures will be also very chilly throughout the day with gusty winds. and a possibility of a pop-up shower or thunderstorm especially in the east bay hills. expect a high of about 65 degrees all across the bay area. >> and that's your latest weather. matt? >> all right, al. thank you so much. it's been a little more than a year now since sue of the biggest superstars in hollywood

8:18 am
>> yeah. i just humor it but she has no business in the kitchen. >> their domestic life aside, turns out the way this celebrity couple celebrated their nuptials was by going back to work together on the screen for the first time in ten years, a film produced by our sister company, universal pictures "by the sea." >> what's cooking, good looking. >> reporter: in which angelina not only stars, she's the writer, director and producer. this is a much different film than request mr. and mrs mrs. smith." >> the a little bit. >> we were joking at one point, this is like the beginning and this is like ten years later. this is what ten years of marriage will do to you. >> the do it. >> stop! stop! >> reporter: i don't want to give away too much about the film "by the sea" by i think a lot of fans and other movie-goers will be a little surprised by some things. here you have one of the most secure marriages in hollywood and this is about the two of you
8:19 am
in a deeply troubled marriage. was this a big risk on your part? >> well, i think, one, i'm counting on the audience to know that if it was close to us at all we could never make this film. it's because we're actually very, very stable and these aren't our issues. >> blowing you a kiss. >> i'm blowing you one back. >> reporter: "by the sea" which seems more like a european art film than a traditional hollywood blockbuster is a deeply personal project. it was inspired by her own bereavement and grief after dealing with her mother's eight-year battle with cancer. >> i can't say what the whole familiar is about, but a lot of the film is when i went to visit my mom in the hospital when she found out she had -- she had cancer the first time. had to have her ovaries removed and very upset and feeling like this was taking out her parts that were female and there was a woman down the hall who was wailing, and i later found out it was a young woman who had not
8:20 am
had children yet and that put everything into perspective. >> reporter: angelina's mother, the actress, was first diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1989 at 49 and died in 2007, this following the deaths of angelina's grandmother and maternal aunt also because of cancer. a few years ago a blood test revealed that angelina carried a mutation of the brca-1 gene giving her an 87% risk of breast cancer, a 50% risk of ovarian cancer, so in 2013 she had both breasts removed and underwent reconstructive surgery emerging as a beacon of hope for women when she told the world. >> well, i feel wonderful, and i'm very, very grateful for all the support. meant a lot to me. >> reporter: have you been stunned by the reaction to this, and are there parts of it that are worrisome to you? >> you never know what a reaction is. you have to just make the
8:21 am
choices you make in life had. i made the choices i made because i believe they were right for me. >> reporter: then in march of this year while she was editing "by the sea" her doctor called with news that another blood test showed she could have signs of early ovarian cancer. she called brad right away. >> i was out in france and angie called me, and i got straight on a plane to return. seeing my wife have to be her strongest and knowing that it's the scare estiest of news is tey moving and not being there is a horrible feeling. >> reporter: together they faced the crisis and though tended up she did not have a full-blown tumor, she had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed. throughout the ordeal, her mother was never far from her thoughts. >> we had some of the same nurses, some of the same doctors so the doctor that did my ovary surgery was my mother's doctor. my mother had said to her promise me you will take angie's
8:22 am
ovaries out and so we kind of got together -- both had a big cry and she said i promised your mother and i've got to do this. >> reporter: less than two weeks after her procedure she wrote an op-ed piece for the "new york times" to make other women aware of what they might expect if they face the same issues. in and leona's case, despite hormonal replacement therapy, her ovarian surgery brought on an early onset of menopause. >> every woman is different when they go through menopause and every woman -- i didn't know how emotionally it would be, i knew the breasts would be physically changing and the ovaries is more your emotions change and your hormones changing but it's different. you feel different. >> reporter: for brad angelina's surgeries and medical challenges these past few years have been inspirational. but she had to make big decisions did double mastectomy and then about having her
8:23 am
ovaries removed. how did you see your role in all of that? >> support, whatever's got to be done to keep the family together and keep the family together as long as possible is going to be done. no question it's a scary decision and there's many things that can go wrong and many different directions, but it was really led by her dedication this is what i've got to the do and this is what i'm going to do. >> reporter: did you have an appreciation of the emotional part of it? >> i just remember there was no vanity to my wife's approach. it was mature. it was an excitement to where this is our life and we're going to make about it. there was a strength in, that just another one of those things in life that makes you tighter. she was doing it for her kids and doing it for her family so she had -- so we could be together which was -- which trumped everything. trumped everything and anything. >> i think for as much as he speaks about my strength, i knew that he made it very, very clear to me that what he loved and what was a woman to him was
8:24 am
somebody who was smart and capable and cared about her family, that it wasn't about -- not about your physical body so i knew through the surgeries that he was on my side and that this wasn't something where i was going to feel less of a woman because my husband wasn't going to let that happen. >> reporter: and in the long run angelina now thinks that her experiences might help others. >> many of us will have cancer. people all die and so to -- to face these issues together and speak about them and talk about what it is to be human i think can be a beautiful thing. >> as you know, hollywood is not my natural arena, but the fact is i'm very taken with these two because of their honesty. they didn't try to in some way to engage me in a way that would improve on their careers. i think her message is very important to women all over the world quite honestly, and they were going from here, by the way, pack to his hometown of springfield, missouri where he has a compound on a lake, spend
