the glitz and glamour. we're going to show you where president trump is expected to be at any minute now. this is the liberty ball. he's expected to be at his three balls and have his first dance with the first lady in a few minutes from now. just an hour ago president obama's first executive order, limiting obamacare. we're not sure about the um pact but it's significant and symbolic. among the first things he said he was going do when he took the office and that's what he did. barack obama is now in california but he had some trouble getting back to california, to palm springs for and extended vacation. we'll explain those stories but first we want to get back to the bay area and check in with our weather. guys back to you. we have seen it all today, talking rain, wind ablightening. we're looking at the live
doppler radar night now. >> we begin with meteorologist rob mayeda. >> we're seeing a little bit of rain around downtown san jose and a wet 580 commute through dublin, tri-valley and san jose looking at scattered showers. but the more intense showers have moved oftf to the east. scattered shows in the knot bno bay. we await storm three taking shape into the weekend. familiar headlines once again as we look at gusty winds. the potential for flooding though with the third storm more wide spread and an ongoing threats of thunder and waves on the coast approaching 25 feet. sonoma county had some flooding today. check this out. for the santa cruz mountains, areas in southeastern santa clara county could pick up 3 to 4 inches of rain.
we have flash flood watches in effect bay area wide for the weekend. a flood warning in southeastern santa clara county into the region today and into santa cruz and san bonita counties. that flooding will continue through monday afternoon as heavier rains arrive for the weekend. let's go to that area right now, holster we're talking about. h levee broke along the same creek that forced people out of their homes last week. dayian trujillo was there last week and now he's back in holster with more on the ev evacuatio evacuations. >> reporter: this is the reason for the evacuations. the creek is now flowing through lover's lane. this is the same thing that happened one week ago here in this same location. aerial foot j shows the magnitude of today's floods. and like last week, 21 people had to be rescued by the swift
water rescue team. some farm animals also had to be rescued. what happened today, the county says there was a breach in the levee along the creek. i asked why that live vevee was inspected after last week's flood. the county tells me it was inspected and felt the levee was okay. what makes them more difficult is that the levee is on private county. san bonita county did declare a local emergency last week and the county did not mince words for blasting the governor's office. >> really frustrated that we have not had a response from the governor's office. zero response from the state that has been helpful with financial resources. we need somebody to come down here and acknowledge there's a problem. we understand there are problems elsewhere in the state. but we're a small county that's rural. we have very limited resources. >> reporter: local leaders say there is another spillway that worries them on the santa clara
side and they worry with more rain that spillway from the river will come pouring into southern santa clara county and into the northern part of san bonita county where we are. these folks say they've learned their lesson from the floods of last week, putting the sandbags around the perimeter of their home. that prevented today's flood waters from going into their home. nbc bay area news. >> thank you. be sure to download our app. back now the inauguration coverage. the white house has a new commander in chief tonight. mr. trump, now the 45th president of the united states. and festivities are just beginning. >> raj mathai is live in washington, d.c. where three official inauguration balls are taking place right now, raj. >> reporter: and this town is buzzing again after the inauguration of president trump. and let's be clear now, he's

traditional tea at the white house and after they had tea and met with each other and exchanged a present, they then went, president trump went to the capitol for the inauguration. a lot of pomp and circumstance and a lot of good feelings in washington. but there with two sides to the story. you've seen throughout the day whether it's on television or social media the protests. we're going to show you the protesting now. and this continues around town even at night. this was earlier today though. a lot of protesters, about 100 informal and formal protests around washington, d.c. but the federal and local police were able to contain them for the most part. but a lot of people upset on both sides of the coin here. >> i'm being kind to people but at the same time there's like this underlying anxiety that i don't know what's going to happen. we don't know what's going to happen. and i'm scared. i think a lot of people are scared. >> reporter: and we did see that
here at the national mall. a lot of people in tears, kind of in fear about a donald trump presidency. but it's happening now. now one thing that people are awaiting around the country and maybe around the world to see if his speech today perhaps united this country. a lot of opinions on that. and perhaps his link to the silicon valley. will president trump be active in the bay area. for that, let's bring in scott budman back in the bay area. >> reporter: well good evening. in his inaugural address the president spoke about jobs, about industry and i quote the energies and technology of tomorrow. and that was enough to get some here in silicon valley buzzing. as he took the oath of office, president trump spoke largely to his supporters -- >> because this moment is your moment. it belongs to you. >> reporter: -- but he also spoke to business people in silicon valley, promising not
just more jobs but jobs in tech, energy and infrastructure. >> we will build new roads and highways and bridges and airports and tunnels and railways all across our wonderful nation. >> reporter: good news to many executives here in an area not known for trump support. >> at this point the words are encouraging. i think we need to see what actions follow them. >> reporter: this is the chief financial officer of salaria, a silicon valley solar company in an industry that has grown and hired every year for the last with decade. >> i think if he's actually -- makes action to deliver on job creation and looking at industries that both deliver on clean energy and energy independence as well as providing americans jobs in america, i think solarari could benefit. >> reporter: a promise of growth -- >> when america is united,
america is totally unstoppable. >> reporter: to a tech industry ready to do just that. the first half of last year a new solar installation went up somewhere in america every 82 seconds. the company would like to see that again for 2017 when the sun comes back. that's scene here. let's send it back to the nation's capital and raj mathai. >> reporter: okay. thank you, scott. we'll see if president trump takes an active role in the bay area and the silicon valley. let's go back now to the liberty ball just across town from where i'm standing here. president trump and the first lady melania trump with their first dance. let's listen in just for a few seconds. ♪ ♪

he's an avid golfer. he said he wanted to go to california and golf a little bit. but about an hour ago his flight was diverted, president obama's flight diverted from palm springs to an air force base in riverside. he's in california now but this weather played havoc on all of us, even the former president. now one flight that was right on skenl and was iconic in itself was marine one, the helicopter flight leaving here where we are in the national mall after the inauguration and then taking barack obama and mr. mrs. obama over to andrew's air force base. that was emotional as he left. and then when he got to andrews air force base, he then addressed his supporters and closest friends. >> i could not be prouder. this has been the privilege of my life and i know i speak for michelle as well.
and we look forward to continuing this journey with all of you. and i can't wait to see what you do next. >> reporter: relatively young from a former president. so we'll see a lot from mr. obama in the years to come. this is a nice photo here by his official white house photographer pete sousa looking over the white house. he flew marine one over the white house. tonight in the white house will be president trump and melania trump, their first night in the white house. now they are dancing the night away as we showed you a few minutes ago at the various inaugural balls. they have three official balls to attend and they just got to their first one. this will be a long night of celebration for all of the trump supporters in washington, d.c. and across the country. we'll see you later on in the forecast and we'll talk about the members of congress in the bay area that boycotted today's inauguration and from those who did attend. we'll see you in a few minutes. >> thank you, raj.

support that one. he is not our president. >> reporter: a coalition march by corporations they felt might be in line with the administration's policies. and urged tech companies not to comply with the muslim registry and voiced other concerns. >> the last 50 years of progress on rights for a whole host of people, people of color, women, immigrants, all of that could be erased. >> reporter: a rally brought a diverse crowd to the streets where demonstrators say trump has 30% ownership in a build. >> i have a lot of friends who are, you know, undocumented. it's something that's really important to me and everybody around me. i feel like i got to stand up for my community. >> reporter: the san francisco police told us earlier that throughout the entire day there had been more than two dozen arrests in the city. but what we saw was largely peaceful throughout the day.
the group took off from here heading toward the castro and the mission and then planned to gather back here near civic center. raj, i'll end it back to you. >> reporter: so much energy and passion across the country with the election and inauguration of donald trump. in fact let's look in now at the second ball he's supposed to atte attend. this is the freedom ball. we showed you earlier the liberty ball in which he danced with the first lady to the song "my way." this is the freedom ball right here in washington, d.c. stop number two of three for president donald trump. we're in the national mall here. it's empty now. but tomorrow again this place will be filled with women. it's the women's march on washington. this should be very interesting because there could be reports of more than 200,000 women here. we'll see how many women show
up. i know that on our flight from san francisco here it was packed. in fact when you walk around in d.c. tonight, you see groups of women excited about the march on washington here tomorrow. we'll check in with some of them later. thousands of demonstrators also gathered at the iconic bay area landmark today to send a message to president trump. chopper was overhead as an estimated 3,000 people joined hands to create a human chain across the golden gate bridge. many of them we spoke to said they hope the new president hears their message. >> i want to believe that love will trump hate. i don't think we have enough time. we have to fight. >> that event today peaceful, no issues, no arrests, just a lot of hand holding. ba . back to our wet weather. problems in the screws mountain,
an area saturated by heavy rains. we're live tonight where people were evaluated earlier today. >> reporter: i'm by the san lorenzo river and it's high today but nothing compared to earlier today. the problem sit's going to rise again and residents tell me they're ready to leave at a moment's notice. >> this area is buried with sandbags. >> reporter: it's been a busy day for richard schafer and his neighbors who were forced to leave their homes early this morning due to possible flooding. >> there's also the sign of pooling and sort of flooding. but when the san lorenzo comes up, then it gets more serious. >> reporter: that's exactly what happened. the san lorenzo river nearby rises quickly and can spill over its bank within minutes >> a couple of feet in 45 minutes this morning. my wife told me about that. and we anticipate that that will happen again saturday. >> reporter: schafer isn't
taking any chances. sandbags sit by the front door. the ground level windows and garage boarded up. >> the front door the same way. >> reporter: next door, elaine remains relatively high and dry. >> i don't feel worried about it. almost every house in the area is lifted up. >> reporter: but that didn't stop her from moving her washer and drur up from her basement to the first floor. >> now we have a washer and dryer underneath here. it's all fine. >> reporter: residents tell me most homes are built for floods. most of them take the warnings very seriously. laura mall pert nbc bay area news. there was also a dangerous situation in santa clara. look at this. the county fire posted this picture on twitter. a mud slide toppled a tree which knock over a propane tank this morning. firefighters had to evacuate two homes nearby until the crews were able to contain the propane

hads he pa hads he paved the way? a lot of critics say that speech was divisive than it was unifying. >> the theme was to make america great again and the crowd took to it. the people there believed in him. to that end the speech focused on yes, taking back our sense of economic privacy, security and lost jobs. >> okay. what about those jobs themselves? restoring those jobs? >> now it gets interesting. he talked about those who are left out. and some people who have lost their jobs during the great recession have been left out. that said, unemployment during the great recession rose to 10%. today it stands at 4.7%. still the new president is correct when he cites a loss of u.s. manufacturing jobs, 5 million since 2000. but while he blames the losses on bad trade deals, studies show that 85%, 85% of those lost jobs are because of automation. so the bottom line here is that
the president painted a somewhat biassed picture, incomplete. >> there were pointed remarks to so-called washington insiders saying he wanted to drain the swamp, deny the economic success to the people. what did you make of that in. >> you're right. trump claimed the need for a fresh start with anti-establishment leaders who would look out for the people. and that may be. but a close look at many cabinet nominees finds extraordinarily wealthy people, billionaires from the various industries that they will be regulating, such as finance, the environment, labor, agriculture to name a few. whatever their merits, these aren't fresh faces. in fact they're among the people he criticized during the campaign. >> lots of inaugural addresses have gone down in history for what the president said, kenny, lincoln. is there anything you heard in this one that you think will stick? >> let's start with the beginning. the speech seemed like a
campaign speech rather than an inspiration for national unity. now the president, sometime, sooner rather than later, he's got to move from campaigning to governing. he's got to fill in the gaps, show us exactly how he will make america great again. so on that note the jury is still out. we're going to learn a lot more in the months to come. >> history will have to be the junl. thank you. well the new president wants to ramp up the u.s. military. our investigative unit took a look at the military numbers. president obama shrunk the militarily 80,000 troops. president george w. bush added 33,000 troops in response to the 9/11 terror attack. and president clinton decreased military membership by over 300,000 troops. department of defense data shows that president lyndon johnson was the last president to significantly increase the number of troops, adding over 750,000 active duty members during his presidency which took
place during the vietnam war. back to our stormy weather, what a mess. we first showed you this video on today in the bay this morning, at the mission neighborhood. rainwater and sewage rushing into a dozen homes flooding them. homeowners complain this is a problem. >> city sclugss has been sandbag, elevate your belongings and get flood insurance. unfortunately when the sewer is failing and sawer water is coming up from insood your home's drains and toilets, there's really not much the residents can do. >> city workers helped the homeowners vacuum out the sludge the morning. they're preparing for more flooding when the next storm moves through this weekend. our nbc chopper took footage of morgan hill. overnight rain led to flooded fields. you can see the pools of water taking over the farm land there. the creek in morgan hill is
swelling and approaching flood level. >> to the coast, some dangerous conditions there. you're looking at the surf at pacifica. we're seeing 20-foot swells at beaches including half moon bay and monterey. dangerous conditions at the beach and basically for the bay area again this weekend with the warning. >> these storms are overlapping each other and we're still seeing scattered showers and thunderstorms. perhaps it woke you up with the wind or the thunderstorms that came rolling through the bay area. some of our viewers submitted video. downtown san francisco, lightning striking the tap of the transamerica pyramid, also sutro tower taking a couple of hits from the lightning. right around 4:13 this morning as the rain and heavy winds blasted through the bay area. a few now of the same pyramid. the lights are on.
