welcome back on this sunday morning. if you were to commute into work, don't wait for monday morning, do it now. here is the bay bridge toll plaza. it will not look like that monday morning. just days away from the final presidential debate. both hillary clinton and donald trump are preparing for decision 2016. it's been a dark week for the republican nominee. at least nine women have accused trump of inappropriately touching them. trump is taken to attacking his accusers. telling supporters the election is rigged. yesterday, he pushed the claim that clinton lacks stamina to be president into new territory. now, clinton, meanwhile, looking towards the future where trump
7:10 am
fades into the background. >> at the beginning of her last debate she was all pumped up at the beginning and at the end, it was like, take me down. so, i think we should take a drug test. >> if we do our job in 25 days, donald trump will stop being on the news every single day. >> you heard donald trump there calling for a drug test for both candidates before the next debate. the latest nbc news electoral map shows clinton is leading in every battleground state. bernie sanders is back in the bay area this weekend. he held an event in san francisco in support of prop 61. and state senate candidate. sanders fielded a lot of questions about the presidential debate or race. you'll remember he bowed out after the democratic convention. when asked about trump's attacks on clinton, at first he tried to wave it off, but when pressed he echoed something the democratic nominee has said several times. >> i'm not looking back, i'm
7:11 am
looking forward and i'm doing everything i can to see that secretary clinton is elected president. >> your feelings about donald trump's accusations? >> i think he's completely unfit to become president of the united states. >> in recent months trump has positioned himself as someone who admires and respects sanders. trump accused the clinton camp of killing sanders' chances of winning the democratic nomination. much more ahead. the raiders plan to move to las vegas and take another step forward tomorrow. why the raiders' owners say that plan still includes oakland at least for a while. and overnight, some of us dried out, but it has continued to rain across parts of the santa cruz mountains. round two continues this morning as we wait on round three that will move in for tonight. we're back to detail the rest of your weekend forecast. we are under a microclimatweath

7:14 am
outside at theakland coseum. we continue to watch the weather. a microclimate weather alert. a live look at the oakland coliseum. the raiders will take on the kansas t kansas city chiefs at 1:00. anthony slaughter will let us know how soggy that game is going to get. that will come up in a few minutes. nevada has cleared the way for the raiders to leave to move to las vegas. the team's owner is renewing his promise to keep the raiders in oakland for a while. raiders' owner mark davis told espn the team will play at oakland coliseum for the next two seasons while the stadium is being built in las vegas. friday the legislature voted to use $750 million of public funds to build that stadium for the raiders. the governor is expected to sign off on the plan tomorrow. oakland mayor libby shaft says
7:15 am
the city will continue to try to come up with a plan to keep the team. final decision will ultimately end up in the hands of the nfl owners. bay bridge is gone. cal trans blew it up yesterday. this is part of a year's long project to destroy the old east span of the bridge. cal trans says because the blasts are contained, marine life is not harmed. used more than 8,000 pounds of explosives to collapse that structure destroying it in less than four seconds. really amazing video to show you. this is from a chp helicopter. the view from the helicopter itself. a boat that crashed near the south end. two men on a rock stranded there. the helicopter crew called a coast guard crew to help and then the helicopter hoisted both men to safety. this all went on as winds gusted over 30 miles per hour. the men not hurt, happy to be on dry land. they have quite a story to tell.
7:16 am
let's check in with anthony slaughter with a look. talk about the raiders, soggy forecast. >> most likely a rain delay if they get game in at all. it's going to be raining and coming down. so, good luck. >> okay. wow. >> so, if you have tickets, keep your fingers crossed and hope that i'm wrong. let's take a look outside. rain coming down in the south bay and just picked up in intensity over the last ten minutes. rainfall amounts over the last ten minutes. santa cruz mountains are the ones i want to focus on. they took the brunt overnight. felton saw over two inches of rainfall over the past 24 hours and boulder creek and scots valley. very impressive amounts here. look at scots valley and even gilroy, you get over that mounten and to the rain shadow effect, still manage about 0.75. and los gatos and san jose and that rain being felt across the south bay. more rain on the way.
7:17 am
you can see it all off shore and the widespread rain i was talking about that could cause the rain delay for the raiders game. this is going to be more widespread and move right into san francisco, the east bay, as we head towards the next couple of hours. the heavy rain right now still situated across the santa cruz mountains just north over scots valley and extends all the way over towards morgan hill and even gilroy, as well, this morning. put the futurecast into motion and show you what we're looking at as we head to about lunchtime. look how widespread the rain becomes. still widespread rain from the santa cruz mountains and places not seeing the rain right now. san francisco, you'll get back into this rain ban and even oakland near the tri-valley and brentwood it will become widespread. the bay won't see much in terms of rainfall this morning. but by this evening another round pushes in and we will dry out momentarily before this final ban pushes in. whenever we do dry out, that will determine if the raiders
7:18 am
can get that game in because there will be some dry time this afternoon once that ban pushes out. then, tonight, the rain pushes back in. it should clear out for tomorrow morning. this is a look at the futurecast tomorrow at 6:00 in the morning. lingers showers and it looks like things will be tapering off as we head towards the afternoon hours tomorrow. we still do have the flash flood watch in effect for the next 1218 hours and in effect through this evening. whenever this rain does come to an end, this is when they will allow this to expire. we are expecting another two to four inches of rainfall in this location. so, as we saw just last night, one tathro three inches fell an this could bring the grand total up to nine inches because over the past two days three to six inches. this is a very prone area to flooding. now, we also have the coastal flood advisory in effect today that goes back into effect until 9:00 this morning. here's a look at rainfall amounts. here's what we're expecting on top of what we have already
7:19 am
seen. another inch possible in those locations through the day today. and then we will round out the day tomorrow with maybe another 0.5. we're talking the rest of the bay area less than 0.01 for the east bay and peninsula. through the day today and that's where we have that flash flood watch. winter weather advisory went into effect at 5:00 this afternoon where they are expecting three to six inches of snow above 7,000 feet. you have to above the highest peak here. even lake tahoe, some snow. three inches there and from kirkwood over to truckee. yes, the winter weather really being felt across the bay area today and going to be cool. we're talking 60s for daytime highs today, scott. you notice the temperatures do climb over the next couple of days once we get rid of this rainy pattern. the 80s as we head towards thursday and friday. even san francisco will warm nicely and back into the 70s by

7:31 am
indicated, this is one of the areas that hit a lot of rain over the past 24 hours. a lot of high-standing water now starting to pick up. this is also one particular zone where there is a flash flood watch in effect for quite some time. as the road that we drove on, not too much of a difficulty getting down to that area, but you still have to watch where you're driving. now, there is another concern, well, two big ones. two big ones. the one is power outages. right now they're starting to pick up just a little bit. just over 100 power outages in the scots valley, felton area. but the bigger issue is the mudslides. that's over here in the mountains all due to the loa fire. the vegetation, the land, just a little bit loose. you add in all this water and you know what you got, a lot of mud. with mud you get a lot of movement and that is the big concern this morning. later on today when it gets a little safer, we'll head up on that mountain and see the conditions a little closer.
7:32 am
folks are concerned how much of the water is going to come this way and really, really ruin their sunday because they may have to stay inside because this is the way it has been for the past few days. once again, as i'm talking right now, it is continuing to come down. it is not letting up. it had maybe a break. maybe for about, i don't know, three to five minutes. and that was it this morning. other than that, it's been going and going and going and looking at the latest weather maps from nbc bay area, there is, once again, a huge cell right behind us and heading this way. as andy has told you, it's heading more north to where we are. that big concern, once again, no santa cruz mountains not far from where we are. we are at the base of that area. in the meantime, live in felton, rick boone, nbc news. we are also seeing flooded roads in the north bay. this is forestville and also some road closures and ft. baker because of the flooding.

7:34 am
watches and warnings. we sent out alerts to the app. download it as soon as you can. the death toll rising in north carolina after a hurricane matthew barrelled through the state. search crews found two more bodies in wayne and cumberland county yesterday. this is in the eastern part of the state. right now the death toll in north carolina alone is 26. 24 people confirmed dead in the country overall from the hurricane. several towns in that area remain under water. the governor there expected to release new recovery plans. but he says the state has a lot of rough days ahead. more than 3,000 acres have burned. 22 homes destroyed in nevada's little valley fire. firefighters managed to contain 20% of that fire, but dozens of homes remain evacuated. some homeowners have nothing to return to. dennis hoff, you may know him, the owner of the bunny ranch says the flames have taken homes
7:35 am
worth millions of dollars, including his home. >> 20 some homes all multi-million dollar homes gone. what are you doing about it? >> took in some rain saturday. high winds could flare flames up in hot spots making that situation worse. officials are still investigating the cause of the fire. so, ironically, both rain and fire in that area. we're following developing news in the north bay. three people shot. we know this morning one of those people died. the police have given us very little detail, though. we know this happened about 8:15 last night on highway 116. that's south. officers tell us two survivers are being treated at a nearby hospital, but we don't know ea whole lot of detail beyond that. we are also learning more detail about the case of a san francisco police officer who was shot in the head on friday night. officers tell us that officer is kevin downs. he has been with the department for two years.
7:36 am
the police chief says downs is partially paralyzed after surgery to remove bulletments from his brain. he was shot near, those who know downs say he and his family have a legacy of community service. >> his oldest brother was, served three tours of duty. and when kevin came back, he worked with a nonprofit that helped veterans with ptsd. so, very long, you know, commitment to public safety. >> this is a photo of downs taken from a website of a nonprofit he helped create that employs vets in the agricultural industry. the suspect in the shooting is in custody at the hospital. keep officer downs in your thoughts this morning. nbc bay area responds to a santa clara man who face a serious predicament. take a trip or cancel and pay
7:37 am

7:38 am
>> they knew exactly what happened and it was understandable. >> reporter: but his lodging booked on airbnb was a different story. he tried to get his money back from the host in paris, but -- the host on his second stop, rome, didn't offer a refund either. the dispute festered for months. now, he probably made a mistake here. he tried to negotiate directly with the host. he should have gone to airbnb right after the attacks. he said it offered refunds to users who requested them. spokesman nick shapiro said it empowers hosts to set and manage their cancellation policies, but in rare instances, emergencies warrant coverage. by the time he went to airbnb his window to apply closed. >> i almost gave up. >> reporter: then he reached out to us. we then explained to airbnb how he thought he should work things out individually.
7:39 am
they agreed to give him a full refund for both canceled stays just shy of $1,000. >> i talked to you and within two days i got my money back. you're doing a great job. >> reporter: we wondered if airbnb would recoup from the host and airbnb said, no. it eats the costs on both sides so there's harm to neither guests nor its hosts. if you have a tip for us, please call the number is 888-996-tips or tell us about it on look for the yellow submit tip bar. from there you can share details and attachments like paperwork and photos to help us investigate. >> all right, chris, thank you. starting this weekend,s could get into big trouble for bringing that phone on the plane. air safety officials have banned the galaxy note 7 from all u.s. flights. this comes days after the phone was recalled for the second time. samsung has since just discontinued the phone after widespread reports the battery

7:48 am
sexual comments and advances have only brought more accusations and more anger, particularly from women. second, he has to attack clinton on substance of issues. take your choice the economy, foreign trade, taxes, terrorism. any of those topics would be good places and safe havens for trump to show that he knows something. attacking bill clinton for his past is not going to help because, guess what, bill clinton is not running for president. third, he has to control his temper and watch his body language. trump has been giving the appearance of a person just out of control. a lot of that comes with the way he comports himself. >> for sure. in football we call it a prevent defense. you're ahead, just run the clock down. hillary clinton not out of the woods here. >> absolutely not. she's leading to be sure. we know that. all the polls are showing that. her supporters are not as enthusiastic as trump. which means she could see a drop

different o off in votes. first she needs to avoid intimidating behavior. simply put, stay on message. maybe that's a little bit of that defense you were talking about. second, discuss those robust issues that clinton is so good at explaining. remember, she's a policy, she can talk on just about anything. and, third, give the people a reason to vote for her. and not simply against trump. for this, clinton's got tatto s some emotion and her passion about a vision for a better america. she needs to show people where she wants to take them. >> something bill clinton was much better at doing. much, much better. so, i mean, we've seen some national polls that seem like they're quite distant. we've seen that some of the most critical states it looks like they will go hillary clinton's way. assuming nothing crazye happens is this over? >> nothing crazy in this
7:50 am
election year. this campaign has already provided a treasure-trove of surprises ranging from trump's ability to wipe out 16 challengers to clinton's great difficulty in putting away bernie sanders. there could be something, scott. there could be terrorist attack, another major economic culaalam or another political scandal. so, really, the next three weeks they're going to be filled with uncertainty. the faint of heart would be well advised to go on a vacation and watch a three-week movie marathon. >> netflix. >> anything to avoid this mess. a lot of people are going to be biting their nails. >> a lot of people have finished. they have done their early voting and they say there is nothing to convince me to regret an early vote. i made my decision. >> early voting big this year. bigger than ever and we're talking about 1.25 million people who have voted and 11 states have early voting right
7:51 am
now. later this week, up even more. by the end 37 or 38 states will have robust early voting. and this is where the democrats have the edge. because they are so good at the ground game. getting those early votes on. this is something the republicans don't have this, particularly with the trump candidacy. so, what the democrats want to do is talk bout football is run up that score with early voting. and they've done it in the past and this year they may do it better than ever, which puts the republicans in a bind. they have to come from behind. >>y gerston. we'll be right back.
