outfitting officers with stun guns. but some city leaders aren't so sure. joe vazquez reports. >> reporter: as popular as that might be around the bay area, here's san francisco city hall -- here at san francisco city hall it may be a different story. the police chief wants tasers but not everybody here wants to even talk about it. >> what we witnessed was an assassination. >> reporter: at the end of a raucous police commission meeting last night -- >> chief suhr, you need to go. >> reporter: -- the chief formally asked again for tasers reviving an effort shot down just two years ago. tasers are used in the police forces of every major city in the country except two, detroit and san francisco. tasers international says the stun guns have been effective and that it's extremely rare for anyone to die directly from a taser strike. in 29 million uses in the field over 22 years, taser international says there have only been 10 direct deaths. but that number goes up if you count all the deaths from people who were in custody
6:01 pm
after a taser was used. so far this year, there have been 48 deaths in america, including this man last month in virginia. that's about one death per week. but the company insists the official causes of death are not from the taser. they usually range from effects of drug overdoses to health problems. >> to say that if they had a nonlethal weapon like a taser that that would have resulted -- >> i still need to be convinced that they needed a taser. >> reporter: supervisor jane kim represents the point of view of many of the city's elected officials. >> oh, my god, drop it! >> reporter: focus on the officer's actions on deescalation and other techniques to avoid this shooting. meanwhile she was to avoid talking about putting more weapons at their disposal. >> i think the question here for me is not about whether we need to have tasers in san francisco. fpd. the question is what are the tactical training programs in place. so even without tasers, was there a better way for to us
6:02 pm
address the situation? i believe there is without the use of tasers. >> if it comes down to you weighing in on tasers, though, at some point, do you think we should have them? >> i need to be convinced that that would be the only way to avoid killing this man. >> reporter: the police commission is going to talk about it. they are going to revisit the possibility of bringing police officers tasers. but they are also going to review the police department's policies when it comes to use of force. in san francisco, i'm joe vazquez, kpix 5. the other big story tonight rain and snow moving through northern california as we speak. here's a time lapse of the rain as it came down late this afternoon in san jose. there was enough to soak parts of the city. many people are calling what we're seeing now a preview of what el nino winter may bring our way. and late this afternoon, this was the scene in the sierra. they are going to get up to 3 feet of snow in the higher elevations. the storm is expected to be the biggest in two years.
6:03 pm
our team coverage starts with brian hackney. he is tracking it all tonight. >> we have widely scattered showers but some of them coming down pretty good. they are fast-moving and they promise to be with us through the night. might even get a thunderstorm or two up in the north coast, you can see the next band of cells coming into marin county south of santa rosa about to hit petaluma and head down toward san francisco and the peninsula, where already it's raining from montera over skyline over 280 getting ready to move into the bay. there's more out there, that's going to be more on the way, as well. as we look at the slick streets of the golden gate bridge, over the last 24 hours, we picked up almost three inches of rain at perpetually wet venado in sonoma county. kentfield an inch, hayward .29", san francisco about .25". san jose didn't get much. in the headlines we'll continue with these showers and even a thundershower tonight. a wet friday during the morning commute. it should be especially wet. and high surf coastal flooding. the surf is up. we'll have all the details in

6:05 pm
make their way to work, strong gusty winds and heavy rain came down during the entire morning commute hours and didn't let up until a lot of people had already made it into work. so we stayed in the mill valley area and we did actually experience a strong rain burst around 3:30 p.m. this afternoon. so when we'll were in the rain they were drenched but when they weren't, it was absolutely beautiful, to be honest. back to you. >> thank you, jackie ward in millio val -- jackie ward in mill valley. thank you. our coverage continues with kpix 5's devin fehely who is in pacifica. hi, devin. >> reporter: here on the coast the storms have come through in waves. early this morning, we had heavy wind and high surf. we had a bit of a lull in the middle of the afternoon and then torrential rain this afternoon about 4:00 but city officials tell me they hope that this wet weather encourages residents to get prepared and have a plan for
6:06 pm
the winter storms that are coming. people came out to catch the power of mother nature and perhaps a preview of what this winter's el nino has in store. >> we came down from san francisco to see the big waves. how many big waves did we see? >> 1,000 of them! some were climbing the stairs! >> reporter: sam and his son weren't alone. hundreds visited the pier in pacifica to see the crashing waves for themselves. >> just being really big waves. my glasses are getting all wet. [ laughter ] >> reporter: the city actually shut down the pier for hours as a precaution knowing that even one rogue wave can do a lot of damage. >> you don't fool with mother nature. >> reporter: patrick has been a pacifica resident for more than 30 years. he has seen his share of the damage that wind and waves and rain can do.
6:07 pm
>> it's the pacific ocean. it's biggest ocean in the world. and it's a great thermal mass. and that's why it's always about 65 degrees here. >> reporter: the city of pacifica was one of the areas hard hit by the last el nino. this time, the city's launched a public service campaign urging residents to live in flood-prone areas to develop their own emergency plans knowing that the worst of the winter storms are still to come. now, city officials tell me that they have actually been working for several months to strengthen the seawall, which provides a lot of protection from the ocean here in pacifica. but they also say, when you live this close to the coast, there is just no guarantee. in pacifica, devin fehely, kpix 5. let's get you now to the snow in the sierra. take a look at what happened during a live report on our 5 p.m. newscast! >> skies here but this afternoon, that storm rolled in. >> yeah. at the very last second there, did you city that flash? that was a burst of lightning!

6:11 pm
concern for their safety. >> we are confused. we're feeling, um, targeted. we're feeling, um, that, um, we're kind of, you know, being, um, you know, pointed at by, um, all quarters. and it's not a good feeling. >> reporter: back here live on the scene the santa clara fire department still has control of this incident. they are inside still collecting samples which will be sent to a lab to confirm what it is. in the meantime, the santa clara police department is standing by waiting for them to clear out so they can begin their investigation. they are also in contact with the fbi and other federal authorities like united states postal inspection service to begin investigating how and who may have sent that letter to these offices in santa clara. reporting live, len ramirez, kpix 5. and a similar scare briefly shut down the cair headquarters in washington, dc this afternoon. officials there say the letter contained a message of hate

6:15 pm
pound leashed dog. other dog owners who used the park say what happened has them on high alert. >> the fact that it was leashed and with the owner usually they are solitary hunter. so they usually don't go for smaller prey. there's easier prey. i saw some deer. it's unusual behavior that it would go for a group of two. >> park officials say if you see a mountain lion, don't turn your back on it. instead, try to make loud noises, try to make yourself appear larger. another rocky voyage ended for some cruise ship passengers. the grand princess docked this morning in san francisco. the ten-day cruise to the hawaiian islands didn't go quite as the brochure described. they left on time, they returned on time, but nothing in between went as planned. the ship was plagued with engine problems that slowed it down. some of the stops had to be cut out and some passengers disembarked mid cruise. princess cruise lines says

6:17 pm
of the worst chemicals but that's what a study from the ecology center found in an orbit this year. >> the concern is that it's associated with cancer, it's similar to neurotoxin. it's not a good chemical. >> reporter: they got two forms of it banned from pajamas in the 70s and are carcinogens. her reaction when we told her another form of the chemical is in the car seat? >> i was surprised but not that surprised because manufacturers can't even find out what's in their products. i think orbit actually means well but they don't know what's in their products. >> reporter: orbit said: it says it does its own testing at independent laboratories. but when we asked if any of orbits' own testing found any of the concerning chemicals in question, orbit had no comment. it turns out the ecology center
6:18 pm
wasn't the first third party to notify orbit of the chemical in the car seat. >> i was devastated to see that it said tryst, yes. >> reporter: after customers told her their orbit tested positive for the chemical she had one of hers tested with another car seat she carries. the orbit tested positive. >> we immediately pulled it off all our floors. >> reporter: to its credit orbit bought back some of their stock a year ago. as of yesterday, orbit's website still claimed the product did not contain the chemical. it's important to know that orbit isn't alone. the ecology center found flame retardants in 75% of the car seats tested although orbit is the only one to claim not to contain them. the bigger issue is the companies don't disclose what they use to comply with the law. >> by the time a fire reaches the can where the children are, having flame retardants in the car seat under the child isn't going to make any difference. >> reporter: now, bloom stresses that parents should
6:19 pm
try to limit the time children spend in their car seats. don't use it as a stroller seat and never let your baby sleep in a car seat outside of the car. orbit refunded cases on a case- by-case basis and has removed some of the claims that we cited from its website. for a link to the study and information on how to get your own carseat tested go to >> i know that you have one of these car seats, right. we're both parents. what are you going to do? >> well, i'm going to get them both tested not only by duke which is the university that participated in the study but also a couple of other independent labs to see if they come back the same. then we'll go from there. i suspect that my older inpart car seat may be okay. from what i'm seeing, orbit won't confirm it, it's some of the newer car seats not the older ones. >> the moral of the story is you don't have to pay $2,000 for a car seat. >> bottom line you can probably get just as safe a carseat for cheaper and they are in every
6:20 pm
car seats. chemicals are in every car seat. a 30-year battle against development ends on the peninsula. it will restore acres of wetlands around bair island a redwood city. they are restoring the area to wetlands. it ends decades of work for a preservationist determined to protect the fragile ecosystem from housing development. public and private groups worked together to buy the land and return it to a tidal marsh for wildlife. it's home to the endangered saltmarsh harvest mouse. 3,000 acres is the largest undeveloped island in the san francisco bay. it will only take a week to fill in. believe it or not. >> going back the way it was. >> yeah. >> and all that rain coming down will fill it up even faster. >> that's not going to hurt. we have some coming down tonight and some coming down in the morning commute tomorrow too. >> people are excited about that news, brian. we were talking about the fact that the rain came early

from one end to the other in two dozen steps. but the real estate agent says another house just like it went for $1.2 million not long ago. it may not be updated or have a big backyard but the demand for homes like this he says even at this price point is there. >> now you have wealthy buyers who definitely feel more secure in their economic position wanting to buy homes with the really small pie. all fighting for just a shrinking pie and. >> literally shrinking. >> literally shrinking. >> reporter: in fact, this is what you can expect for a starter home here. when the average price point is $3.2 million, you better be prepared for the starter to run you to the end of your credit. in palo alto, emily turner, kpix 5. an east bay nanny is attacked and tonight police say they have their guy. how a camera blocked the way to help officers track that guy down. >> dive teams searching a lake
