6:33 pm
time to get around the hole. crews say they're going to try to make it so that the j-line can, within a day or so, come back through. but it's going to take a couple of days to fill the sinkhole. so best bet is to avoid church and jersey streets here. in san francisco, scott budman, nbc bay area news. >> scott, thank you. deputies released new surveillance video and pictures that might help them identify and catch two robbery suspects. investigators say these two men robbed a gas station on danville boulevard in alamo sunday morning. the suspects are described as between 18 and 20 years old. here's a closer look at the men. they fled in an older white suv. the cashier was treated at the hospital. his last week in office and the san francisco sheriff is overhauling the way the department uses force. after losing the november election, he leaves next week. but today he released the department's new use of force

6:46 pm
football field. take a look at this. here is the ship in the background. you can see the size compared to a semi truck. the jet even looks tiny compared to the ship. and this is compared to the aircraft carrier "uss george h.w. bush." it's more than double the size. >> that really puts it in perspective. people in pasadena may be able to smell the roses already. the rose bowl parade happens every year on new year's day. tens of thousands of flowers and a lot of manpower there. temperatures will be in the 30s, but crowd numrs will be 700,000 plus. police say there will be unprecedented security, even though there are no known threats. the fbi, homeland security, and two dozen bomb sniffing canines are part of the plan. watch the parade right here on nbc bay area.

6:50 pm
isolated zone of 2 plus inches. for right now, an awesome new year's eve. just remember to bundle up. >> good advice there. it is chilly. >> jeff, thank you. coming up, the warriors department look like themselves without steph curry. he was out again today. so how would they fair without their mvp? michigan's "lake superior state
