6:33 pm
breezy. what we could use is rain to make a dent in some of the dry conditions on the hill tops. coming up we have other systems tracking to bringing a chance of rain and perhaps we will look at that in 15 minutes. >> we need that. in the north bay we are looking at how the hospitals evacuated patient as flames ripped through santa rosa. we have new time laps video to show you. released today by sutter santa rosa regional hospital. if you can make it out people scurry away from the hospital with hot spots scattered all around. you can see embers blowing everywhere, sparking new fires. now in the midst of all this, sutter and nearby kaiser permanente made the decision to evacuate hundreds of patients. an erie scene as they evacuate the patients. in total 77 people evacuated in the early hours of that fire. today we were there sutter santa

6:43 pm
6:44 pm
new territory: the insurance realm. well thousands of people who is homes are danld are entering new territory. and it's confusing and difficult territory. we are talking about the insurance realm. >> our consumer team is fielding a lot of questions. chris chumara is within the fire zone much of the week. back in studio now a lot of people need guidance. >> everybody will.
6:45 pm
it's foreign territory for most. complete with its own language. let's address a few universal questions minus the jargon. how long will insurance cover the cost of temporary housing? well because the fires triggered a state of emergency state law requires 24 months. generally speaking home owners policies usually will cover housing that is similar in size to yours as well as the fees associatewood move in like application fees, credit check charges, utility hookup and renter insurance but even though the state requires insurance company to pay for 24 months of the tempary housing some policy cap the amount of money can you spend. theoretically you could run out of coverage before the 24-month window ends. here what you have to do get ahold of the policy figure out what you're entitled to and look for a section outlining additional living expenses when you find that look at the numbers and please budget accordingly. here is a question that applies to almost every insurance kplam
6:46 pm
small or large. what do i do? well while the claim is processed? it's vital you keep a journal document every meeting phone call email and letter from the insurance company. keep track of dates, times and names, and promises. agents and adjusters are human. they will be overwhelmed handling claims and some are working out of tents. it's possible mistakes will be made. you can correct the errors by keeping good notes about every step of the process, beginning with the moment you first make contact. keep a running record of who is handling what and when. if you have a question for us we are here to answer it for you. 1-888-996-tips, or online at nbcbayarea.com/responds. this is an emotional time. but insurance claims really need to be treated like a business negotiation. >> that's why you need a complete copy of that insurance someplace safe where it doesn't get damaged. >> i suggest putting in the cloud scan it and then send it to the cloud.
6:47 pm
you have it anywhere even if the house and safe burn down you have it in the cloud. >> we can learn a lot from what's happening thanks, chris. >> you're welcome. >> the coffey park looks like this tonight. new drone video which provides a different look at the destruction. this is caused by the tubbs fire. we posted the video on the website. you can see it at nbc bay area.com. >> rob mayeda back with us. the north bay, east bay, south bay. we need a break hopefully the rain helps. >> we are looking for the time frame thursday into friday. even by october standards it's been unusually dry especially compared to last year and what we should see through this time of year things not stacking up well for the bay area. it has been all-time record hot summer one of the warmest septembers last month. look at the rain totals, nothing, we should see more than nothing in the forecast. you can see the average this time of year should be a half inch in the north bay. nothing so far. and last october many spots around the bay area already had an inch of rain.
6:48 pm
so this is the time of year we get our off shore wind events but also usually at least get a little bit of rain and so far the month really hasn't shone that. instead we see dry conditions. and for the moment a pretty sunset view looking to the west of san francisco. a cool 58 as the sea breeze picks up. 76 into dublin. there is the sunset view in san jose. notice the skies cleared out. we see the sea breeze pushing the surface snoek out. currently 75 in san jose. air quality still unhealthy around the bay area but thanks to the sea breeze look at air quality levels tomorrow. except for the north bay where it's unhealthy. spare the air day for the north bay. but the rest of the bay area more moderate air quality levels as the on shore winds help to push smoke away. we had light wind today under high pressure that tends to act like a dome over the bay area and traps smoke. but at least underneath that you have the surface winds pushing
6:49 pm
more smoke out during the day tomorrow really it's around the north bay fires which are showing up and the high resolution model there and also the fire in the santa cruz mountains locally spilling smoke down into sand martin and gilroy and santa cruz. morning chilly, 40s to 50s morning. high touchstone cooler than today. mid-70s in the forecast for san jose. close to 80 in livermore. only 70 in oakland with low clouds at times. for the morning. peninsula temperatures in the 60s to low 70s. san francisco seeing the highs in the upper 60s. notice the humidity back up to 78%, west wind at 13 and areas into the north bay, santa rosa 78 as the southwest wind picks up. keeping the humanity higher during the day tomorrow. right now it's making for the gorgeous sunset are the high clouds crossing the bay area. but two systems watching closery, the first one likely will send rain just to the south. we get clouds out of it but any
6:50 pm
chances of showers staying south. it's right around midnight thursday night to friday morning we see the best chance for rainfall. again rain totals relatively light around the bay area. south of santa rosa looks like less than .1 inches of rain. notice through friday and saturday storm track moves to the north and high pressure will build in midway through the weekend. we get one chance for rain and look next week that's a pattern we have seen too much this month. high pressure building in warming things up. short-term cooling better air quality i think. especially thursday and friday as the winds pick up and the chance of rain but that weekend forecast trending warmer again. so this could be the one weather system we watch for rain and things turn dry and warm again. >> not raining at the oracle tonight on the court. >> indoors, yes. >> thanks, rob. >> show time opening night for the warriors. colin resch joins us courtside next. tonight...
