really bogged down this way. i will show you a live look at the bay bridge coming up. it will be a difficult day at the high school in pleasant hill. two high school students died after a car accident yesterday morning on franklin canyon road. kpix 5 jackie ward is live in pleasant hill were planted -- help will be available for the girls classmates and teachers this morning. good morning. >> reporter: morning. buses will started just a little bit here in pleasant hill, and grief counselors will be available for any student or teachers, or staff member who feels they need to talk after losing two very young community members. it was late halloween night around 3:00 in the morning when the 16-year-old driver and soul survivor of the crash told investigators she fell asleep at the wheel as she was driving on franklin canyon road. it killed lawrence smith and marlee hinds. the driver scene is -- name isn't being released. friends

in apartments that their kids can afford to go to school here and grow up your and that this is not just a town who is controlled by a handful of tech billionaires. it's about whether big money can come in and tell us about the quality of our lives. >> i think that is overblown. >> for supporters of julie christiansen it's not about demonizing developers. >> instead of denying the fact that growth is happening we need to find ways to work to accommodate that growth. >> reporter: christiansen tells me the race has less to do with fighting for the city's sole and is more about the character of her opponent. >> he has a reputation for being muscle. for being a hammer. he has fought this campaign with the idea that he is going to go in there -- and pound on the table and get what he wants. they want to know that the person who represents them there is fair and honest and respectful. >> this is a fight between change versus more of the same.
>> political analyst alex clemens to the character of the race depends on whether you feel the city is serving you well right now for leaving you behind. >> that can always be put forward as a struggle for the city. but that is usually the folks that are feeling left behind as they try to get start -- traction with the undecided voters. >> joe vasquez kpix 5. and the money is far -- flying. this is the most expensive race ever for a seat on the board of supervisors. not only have republican -- has the rnc dumped nbc, a partner of telemundo, from partnering -- posting its february debate, now they have a list of demands that include mandatory 32nd openings -- 30- second openings, equal speaking time and graphics -- approved graphics displayed during the debate. >> i was very disappointed in the moderators. i think it was one gotcha question after another, one
portion of the bay area. should be easily out of here by about 9:00 with spotty showers in its wake. livermore so for -- far has picked up a -- an inch of rain already. it continues to pour. complete details and four minutes. thank you roberta. only external impact could have caused the crash of a russian plane in egypt. that's what a south carolina official is saying after 224 people were killed when flight 9268 broke apart 23 minutes into its light. they have also ruled out a tech echo problem or pilot error. the russian government says it is far too early to make the claim. isis has claimed it brought down the aircraft but russian officials say that is very unlikely too. but if -- a growing number of airlines are avoiding the airspace around the crash. >> we don't know what happened here and as long as that's the case it's prudent to avoid the area. debris from the wreckage is spread over 6 mi.2. the bat --
black boxes have been recovered and are in good shape. they are now being reviewed. >> it is the end of hewlett- packard as we know it. >> jason brooks has the latest on this historic day in sultan valley. he jason. >> hello. this is a big deal. they are splitting into two companies today. this is been in the works for a long time. meg whitman run the opening bell on the stock exchange for hewlett-packard enterprise company -- that's the one she will lead. for networking and consulting. hewitt packard enterprise is seeing as having the bigger close -- growth prospects were hp will continue to focus on pcs and printers. hp will be led by ceo deion weissler. visa is making a big bet on europe. they bought back europe for $23 billion. visa europe went independent back in 2004.

can see these flurries coming down. that's a good look at the eastbound side of interstate 80 right there. not sticking so much. caltrans did drop salt on it. they are ready to put down the metal onto the snow to push it off in case it gets too sick, but that probably won't be for a couple hours. you will no doubt be using your windshield wipers for the snow and once you get to donner summit you will use them just to get over the summit with the snow that is starting to fall out here right now. a lot of rain in the valley and bay area. you will actually start to see the snow approaching donner summit. sean bennett, kpix 5. it is 646 -- 6:46. >> update on the trouble spot we've been following all morning long, 580 at rainville.
chp has opened a couple more lanes. here is a live look. once again earlier all lanes were shut down within a greg on its side. three rate lanes are now open. -- three rate lanes are now open. let's show you our map right now. to see the backups. as far as dry times, delays of about 35 minutes on altamont pass through 680. down to 5 miles per hour in some spots. a lot of those get -- delays originate out of tracy. north of san pedro, an accident blocking two right lanes. blocked past 37 at this point so very slow conditions. looks better as you make your way to the toll plaza in oakland between 580 into san francisco. 14 minutes on the southbound side of 101.
25 minute drive between 80 -- 880 and 101 as you work your way from hayward into foster city. north 880 at davis in the clearing stages but slow in both directions. westbound east shore freeway has just been a law -- crawl this morning. six minutes, metering lights are on. looks like that 80 -- 880 approach doing a little better toward the toll plaza. southbound 680, walnut creek cutting over to 24, rick likes there as well. plan for that. a couple accidents near san francisco. southbound 280 getting word of wreck -- a wreck in the north lane. reports of an accident in the right lane. that may slow you down there. only two lanes in that area. and if you make your way to the south -- northbound 880 -- anyway you shake it it is busy out there.
48 minutes after the hour, let's call in our weather watchers so they can report in some of the rainfall totals. john miller says over six -- 6/10 of an inch of rain. over 3/10 of an inch and over a quarter in napa according to dave. thank you gentlemen. i have been trying to add up some of the totals in and around our microclimates and we see up against the peninsula we're starting to see the totals stack up. check out -- san jose, approaching 7/10 of an inch. another one that's surprising, nearly a full inch of rain in livermore. and nearly a full inch just since midnight in the st. helena area. this is our live high-def doppler radar. this is the back side of the front, so we are starting to see the rain ease up in the occidental and could still areas. we will see the heaviest rain this out by about 9:00 or 10:00's morning.
heaviest rain right now around highway 101 making tracks -- and being inundated with moderate to heavy downpours in the peninsula. east bay has been hampered all morning -- hammered all morning. heading down towards oakland. fremont, light rain at this particular time in sunnyvale with light rain drops on the rooftops. it's a live camera looking out toward the day -- bay bridge. we will see some spotty scattered showers throughout the day today and a lot of instability. therefore we cannot rule out the possibility of an isolated thunderstorms. again the heaviest rain moving through. behind this front we will see some cooler air mass. right now looking at our future cast and again by lunch hour, just mostly cloudy skies with occasional spotty, scattered showers. again that cool air mass just
filters into the bay area so we will keep a watchful eye to the sky for that potential. about 2/10 to 3/10 of an inch of rain in the pleasantville area. for tents around the santa cruz area. winter storm warning in effect until 10:00 tonight for the high sierra. a foot of snow above 8000 feet. about 1" to3" down at lake level. under 70 degrees everywhere. 10 to 20 mile-per-hour winds. and look at this string of sunshiny days tuesday through the rest of the week. >> the rain is so refreshing. the lawns and yards are saying thank you. hopefully more to come. a whale is back out in the open water this morning. and no doubt feeling better. is freed from fishing lines off the coast of la jolla. crews began working to free it on friday but it wasn't until saturday when it finally broke free.
it is on its own but there is still a fishing line stuck in its mouth so there is concern about how well it might survive . >> similar to the way a fisherman would pull in a big fish they pulled in a humpback whale. this whale i believe in the end knew we were there to help and it allowed us to cut the carefree. >> since january at least 50 whales have been caught up in fishing lines off the california coast. that's because the food they eat is being drawn closer to shore because of warmer ocean temperatures, a result of el niño. time is being -- a month after a cargo ship vanished, promising developments in the effort to figure out why. >> and were live in fremont where we have steady rain falling. in fact rain is falling over much of the bay area as we speak. we have live report -- we have a live report coming up.
