(pam) new tonight at 8. during last night's storm ... one of the thousands of lightning bolts, hit a tree.. that then fell on top of a house leaving a wide hole in the roof(steve) kron4's justine waldman is live for us now in moss beach, along the coast, after speaking with the homeownerw ho was home when the lightning bolt stuck.justine, he saw the whole thing! saw and heard it!part of the tree is still here on the house on pearl avenue.the homeowner was just a few feet away from the tree when the lightning bolt came crashing down. sot scared the hell out of me the once mighty cypress tree outside of phil grubers house.. is now splintered and shattered.and part of it is resting on his roof.sot it happened so fast i don't know what is saw it just was a tremendous explosionaround 6 on monday night, phil was on his deck with his wife
watching the evening sky dance with lightning sot i was counting the seconds and the next thing i know this tree blew upa bolt flashed before him with a force he'd never seen or heard before.sot cover i thought it was a bombsot someone showed up today who heard it two miles awaya few pieces of wood flew off and almost smacked phil in the face, he kept the sharpest ones to show ussot that is why we saved these two to remind us how lucky we are not to be impalednats of his video phil took this video of the fire department and county out late at night, sawing up huge branch that landed on the street, blocking th roadswhat is left is now a scrap pile in his driveway.nats?a tree branch pierced a hole the size of a kitchen sink in his roof. some of the deck is also damaged.and a gutter dangles like it's on a string to get it all fixed will cost about 10-thousand dollars.nats? during the next storm to stay safe, phil says he'll stand right by the tree stump, because lightning never strikes the same spot twice. sot what are the odds of that happening, ive been told i should go play the lottery nows
the rest of the tree will have to come down.that process will start on wednesday morning. (steve) one of the many lightning strikes is being blamed for sparking a wildfire in san mateo county. the "skeggs fire" is burning in a remote spot between skyline boulevard and woodside road. air tankers could be seen laying down fire retardent. in an effort to keep the fire away from homes. right now those homes are ánotá being threatened. but the fire is hard to access ---so for the most part crews have been fighting it from the air. (pam) one worker out at san francisco international airport had a near miss with a lightning bolt. the worker, who was driving a vehicle called a tug, pulling an empty plane ...reported the strike about 9:30- last night.
he was checked out by a medical team... luckily he was uninjured. the plane he was pulling was also not damaged in the incident. many passengers were inconvenienced by the storm . the f-a-a ordered a 'ground stop' at the airport twice last night, in order to protect the ground crew whose work exposes them to the elements. s-f-o officials say, with the potential for more thunderstorms in the forecast , they plan to keep eyes on the skies and keep in close contact with the f-a-a this evening.

unprecedented access for two years, nicks says he was surprised just how committed some officers were to reformsot you can call them idealistic and aggressively trying to the notion of reform on a personal individual levelbut protests in oakland over officer involved shootings in ferguson missouri and in oakland. shifted filmmakers focus to the level of mistrust the community had for policesotthe degree of mistrust and the gulf between perspective really surprised meand then after filmmakers had wrapped shooting, they were forced back to the field when the sexual misconduct scandal broke.--nats-nicks says after being with the opd for 2 years he can understand how difficult it is to reconcile how corruption, moral failure and complacency can sit alongside forward thinking visionary reform. sotthose things are happening side by side next to each other and we need to try to bring that into our thinking about how we see each other, how we talk about police and talk about the community moving forward standup dan kerman/oakland

the bike lane, after getting bags from his trunk he reads the small tiny sign nats ambiance then he goes back to reposition his car .while in the process of making the change lets go talk to him to see what he has to say i noticed you changed your parking (i know i didn't get it but i had to do it, you know) why? (because that's what they said the sign here) you saw the little sign did you see the big sign that you parked right next to there? (back in angle parking only, back in) yea you did it right the second time i created such a buzz just being there that some people started telling drivers to turn around this is joe and he is not liking this new configuration everybody complains about this, this is no good . nobody like it (say it agai) n nobody likes itso why would the city change from pulling in to backin in . it's simple it's so the drivers can see bicyclist when pulling out . backing out makes it dangerous but not every driver is against it rules are rules and regulations are
regulations i think its ok new rules on vicente in front of the sunset suppermarket read the signs or risk a ticket or even worse a crash thank you sir you're welcome in san francisco stanley roberts kron 4 news just ahead.. the body of a young woman found dead in a freezer... now her mother is demanding an explanation about her mysterious death. alarming questions on sex and drugs for a high school class assignment .. now its parents who want some answers..
