of them were hurt. team coverage, first nbc bay area's bob redell, live at the scene in sunol. bob? >> reporter: good morning, we've heard from union pacific which owns the land and rails, and they tell us they hope to have tracks fixed and the two remaining cars removed by 4:00 this afternoon. not clear if that means a.c.e. trains would start running for tomorrow's commute but two cars, one in the alameda creek, and the other one that's derailed but upright on top of the embankment. workers will be using a special hoist and crane. they're on the rails now to pull and rerail the upright car so it can be taken away, and then workers will use the train to drag the car that's in the creek. but drag it so it becomes parallel to the tracks, drag up the 40-foot em bankment and try to get it back on the rails for transport out of here. if you want a look from a view
11:02 am
from above to give you a sense of what we're talking about. significant mudslide, a good 30-foot long slice of land came down the hillside and took out that train last night. this was the number 10 a.c.e. train, last train of the night for 214 commuters traveling between san jose and stockton when it derailed around 7:30 here in niles canyon, a mile west of sunol. the engine pushing four railcars when debris and a tree swept out on the tracks. the engine and back two cars stayed on, the third car derailed but stayed upright while the fifth car tumbled into the water. nine people were hurt, four seriously, but everyone survive the which the sheriff office call a minor miracle. >> screaming passengers, panic among people and a rushing creek that the deputies and firefighters had to get through to rescue everyone.

11:05 am
really loud, but it was a couple of jerks and then the train went into the, you know, complete stop. >> all of a sudden hard stops, rapid deceleration and it was jarring and then it stops and we could see mud and rocks and trees up against the side of the train. >> one member under the mudslide, we were trying to dig her out while the train was hanging. it was a crazy experience. >> reporter: and harrowing experience inside as well. people describing how passengers were getting thrown around inside the train, breaking glass when they hit the windows. passenger whose were not hurt had to walk a half mile to get out of the area. six other passengers may have been hurt and taken to hospitals but not admitted for treatment. nobody suffered life-threatening injury. we have more coverage coming up tonight at 5:00 and 6:00. live in castro valley, stephanie

11:07 am
we see rain billowing up here in the last couple of frames. looking closely at these showers that have developed and those heavy downpours as we go into the rest of the day. now, we are looking at potential of some of this moving into san francisco. later on this afternoon with a quick moving shower, and that could approach parts of the east bay as well. they may be cleaning up that train derailment in some of the spotty showers that will be moving through. expecting heavier rain as we go into early tomorrow morning. i'll give you updates on that and heavy downpours expected before the weekend. that's coming up later. commuter train from san jose to stockton will not be in service while workers clear the mudslide. also seeing other traffic delays because of the derailment. mike inouye joins us. >> two aspects to this. first, the long ride that folks are not able to take. so they have to do a longer drive if they can't telecommute. this is over stockton, and tracy. this is where the bulk or the

a big task after a mter traiderails nr sunol, hurtin welcome back. we've been talking about the
11:30 am
derailment all morning, and workers thoep hawork r worker s hope to have tracks cleared by 4:00, considering the commuter train derailed near sunol, hurt at least nine. bob redell live at the scene with an update. bob. >> reporter: good morning to you, scott. union pacific, which owns the rails and the land surrounding it, said they hope to have the two derailed railcars out of here within 4 1/2 hours. if you look over to your left, beyond that tree right there, you'll see a black crane, a special crane on its own rail bed. what they're going to be doing is using that to rerail the one car upright and what they'll do is the railcar in the creek, the altamont creek, they will drag that, make it parallel to the embankment, drag it up the embankment, all in theory what they're trying to do, get it rerailed and get the two railcars out of here.
11:31 am
this is because of a mudslide that happened around 7:30 last night. take a look from the video, we shot from chopper, you should be able to see it. it's a very large 30-foot arch gash that fell off the hill there and swept on to the tracks. this is as the a.c.e. train number 10 traveling between san jose and stockton, the last run of the night, 214 commuters on, about a mile west of sunol here when debris, mud, rock and a tree swept on to the tracks and derailed two cars. there was an engine and four cars, two cars derailed. inside those cars nine people seriously hurt, but remarkably everyone -- nine people hurt, four seriously, everyone survived. >> it's a minor miracle. you know, to paint the picture, when you're down there and you're close, you feel like the movie "the fugitive" when the train is derailed and that starts your movie.
11:32 am
but that's the kind of scene it is, rugged, rural, cold, dark, and for the people that are on the train they may not be dressed to be out in 45 degree weather at the time, kind of a misty fog. so you've got to account for all of these things going on when you're sheriff's office and fire to get everybody out safely, keep them warm, get them on buses, stage them at the fair grounds so loved ones can be reunited with them. a lot going on in a very short period of time. >> this section of the a.c.e. train running through niles canyon is steep and curvy. the speed limit here is 40 miles an hour but last night the train was traveling 35 miles an hour, 5 miles an hour below the speed limit. bob redell, nbc bay area news. >> before you go, a quick question. they're going to rerail the car that's down in the creek?
11:33 am
>> reporter: apparently. you can't see it from our side, but the undercarriage is still intact. right now what you're seeing is the top side. but the backside, from people we've heard with union pacific say that wheels are still intact and they think that, yes, in theory, if they can drag the derailed car in the creek, make it parallel to the embankment, drag it up on the tracks and move it out of here. >> that's extraordinary. >> reporter: aim to have this done by 4:00 this afternoon, yes. >> bob redell, thank you. mudslide that most likely caused that derailment was caused by recent rains. march started off wet, another batch of rain's coming. let's bring meteorologist kari hall back. when do we get our next rain? >> hopefully they'll get that cleaned up by 4:00 because we are watching showers quickly approaching from the north. they have been fizzling out as they've been moving to the south. but still a chance of rain as we
11:34 am
go through the day. a quick burst of heavy downpours that moved through santa rosa and clearlake but it's weakening and will continue to approach san francisco as we go into the next several minutes. looking at this rain, pretty much covering the north bay and once again as you move over toward napa, you see showers moving in and it's moving closer to mill valley, and once again, approaching san francisco. so we will have a chance of wet weather at least san francisco and farther to the north before a lot of the showers weaken. i'll talk about heavier rain in the forecast before the weekend. that's coming up later. >> that commuter train from san jose to stockton will not be in service while workers clear all of those things you saw in bob's report. also seeing other traffic delays because of the derailment. mike inouye updates us. >> we have started over here in stockton. four trains in the morning, coming in four trains go out. we don't need evening trains because the four trains did not come in. folks had to hit the road.

11:46 am
