should add lot of snow up toward lake county, now that the clouds have collar clear. you can see the mountains, the snow, thank you to karen for that and here is the snow at the geysers. thank you to joanna for that. watch out. you know what ha means in once we clear out you can see most of this done i think by now. there still could be some hanging on. still wrapping back from the low. that -- the low still triggering thunderstorm activity out in the valley. maybe a bit of heavy shower activity. you can so the circulation that means snow in the searchy. winter storm warning until four and there is a little bit of the disturbances continuing to wrap back around. look at the temperatures. 40s. kelseyville. 41 degrees. only upper 40s for some including leesburg at 47. napa at 48 degrees. missed on the rain it wasn't a lot. the most is in around marin. oakland, san jose, san francisco, quarter to a third of an inch and then a half
inch, we still have one more system that has to kind of clear here later today. we are on the driver side. we are on the colder side. i think that's going to give for a lot of black ice in the next couple nights or admonish mornings. up in the north bay the rain has let up and the river is starting to go down in the gurnville area. >> alex savage live where things are slowly improving. still a long clean up ahead for everybody. >> yeah. a long road ahead for a lot of folks. its clear that hundreds of homes likely going to have some level. flood damage. a lot of cars have been left submerged by the rising waters of the river. the good news up here is that they are getting a break from the rain here and the waters of the river are beginning to go down here. you can see a lot of people still get around by boat today in many neighborhoods that have just been sort of cut off because they are overwhelmed by
the water. again the waters are starting to recede and that's the good news up here. neighborhoods do remain under water in many spots. people using boats and canoes to try to get around and try to check on neighbors. we have seen some people delivering groceries to people who are unable to leave their homes. a lots of people did stay behind in their places. even as the river began to flood during the storms this week. the river crested yesterday at about six feet above flood le here say they are grateful the river stopped rising when it d. >> just a couple more feet would have been is significant for us. it looks like we are going to just get away with a bit of mildew now. we should be good. >> reporter: and most of the homes in this area have been raised up over the years because they have had so many serious flood events over the past few decades. floodwaters in most cases during this week's storms they came into those ground floor garages, a lot of people just
got whatever valuables they had and moved them upstairs to avoid them being damaged. this was some of the worst flood that people say they have seen in about the last decade o as the recovery starts everybody knows they are not out of the woods. >> yeah. no it's a lot of winter left. we will see what happens. the ground is soaked and another big storm will do the same thing if not worse. >> reporter: and even though the rain has let up the fire captain with the fire protection district that i talked to this morning said that landslides are still a huge concern in this area because the ground is just so soaked. they had a serious mudslide a few days ago. that was on monday night. seven home hads to be red tagged. they worry they still could have more of that. we bring you back out here to a live puck church mere in this neighborhood -- right off
highway 11. you can see that -- still some serious flooding in these neighborhoods but again the good news is that overall the river is going down and it's possible it could drop below flood stage or be at flood stage at some point later tonight. back to you for now. >> great news. thank you. one the north bay's busier roadway social security still closed because of flooding. highway 37 in nevado is closed between 101 and atherton near the stone tree golf club. floodwaters covered all four lanes and some cases three to four feet high. some drivers just abandoned their cars because the water was so deep. we don't know when that roadway will reopen. the storm has caused a lot of damage. it's turned deadly but its been good for the drought. >> officials saying all this rainfall is bringing part of california out of the drought. >> reporter: we are here at lexington reservoir and it's just a great screw. it used to be depressing to drive by on highway 17 because
the water level was so low that you could walk a couple hundred yards in to the reservoir. now look att. it's at capacity. many of the state's reservoirs swelling because of all the rain that is falling since january. the state's largest reservoir lake shasta is 81% full. in the sierra yesterday snow pack jumped to 158% of normal. the associated press said that the weekly drought report by government and academic experts showed 42% of california is now drought free. some are saying that the 2017 could turn out to be one of the wettest years on record. that is only if the rain continues. we spoke to a resident who came out to look at how full lexington reservoir is now. here is what he said. >> i wonder how long it'll last. this is what -- once in a decade kind of rain. yes, when i see that as -- i have only lived here for a year but never seen it that full in my life. it's really great to see. >> reporter: here is a look at just how much things have
changed over the past year. the united states drought monitor released these before and after pictures of our drought situation. you can see one side shows what the state look like today with most of the extreme drought conditions in southern california. compare that to a year ago when you saw a lot of more dark red and orange on the map. all across the state meaning an exacceptional drought. even though the rainfall caused flooding and other problems the state needed the water. it sure brought a smile to a lot of the people who come out here to lexington reservoir to take pictures of the water. reporting from loss gatos. >> sounds strange but even with all this rain the city of santa cruz has declare aid water emergency. one of the largest water deliver are you pipes burst on monday. that deprives the city of more than a million gallons of water a day. santa cruz is asking everybody to cut back their water use by 30%. officials suggesting people take few fewer showers, do less laundry and use paper plates and compost them instead of
having to wash dishes. crews working to repair the damaged pipeline. investigators looking for the cause of a suspicious warehouse fire in vallejo. this one broke out 6:30 this morning at the warehouse on florida street which was supposed to be empty. about half of the building was in flame when is firefighter as lifed. officials say that they think people were living illegally in the warehouse. nobody was found inside when they search that building. took about a half hour to put the fire out and crews stayed at the scene to put out the hot spots. right now the city councilmembers are meeting to discuss actions they say are designed to keep people in their homes. even if those homes aren't legal residences. >> we are live from city hall and are these actions in response to the deadly warehouse fire? >> reporter: yes. the mayor issued an exive order on this topic. the mayor said that because of what happened with the oakland ghost is ship fire the concern a lot of people are now being
forced out of their unpermitted illegal warehouse spaces because their landlords are concerned about live and safety. happening now inside oakland city hall and some of the council chambers a committee is meeting to discuss and take public input on some of the measures the city wants to take. the mayor's order calls for the city's building inspection department and other city departments to take 60 days to work with landlords to make warehouses throughout the city safe tore live in instead of evicting the people who live there. last month 36 people died in a fire at the government ship warehouse on 31st and oakland. more than a dozen were living in that building that was not permit informed residential use and the fire happened when a crowd of people inside were at an unpermitted music event and that's when the the fire broke out. the mayor said the first priority in her order is directing city staff to get an accurate count of how many warehouses in oakland are being used as residential buildings. the mayor said some are now kicking people out because they
are just now becoming concerned about the safety issues. >> we recognize that the fire created a high scrutiny on these type of spaces and that's why we are not only bringing these new tools, these nonregulations but also incentives and education campaigns so people know what their rights and they are nowitzki what the resources to get these spaces legalized and safe. >> reporter: she and some city councilmembers in support of increasing the fee landlords would pay if they try to evict their tenants -- that proposal -- the fee would nearly double what it is now from $6,500 in relocation for a tenant in studio or one bedroom and up to 8,000 for tenants in a two bedroom unit. now inside the city council chambers for this hearing there was a group calling itself the oakland warehouse coalition. some of the people who lived in the ghost ship are part of that organization. they say they -- they say that
they believe the mayor's action is a good first step but they declined request for on camera interviews. i had a chance to speak to a representative from some east bay landlords and she said that their position is that the order is to broad and doesn't make a difference between legal and illegal living spaces. a lot for the city to work on and the mayor said she live believes this will be passed. some of the relocation fee will be passed by the end of this month. back to you. >> thank you. fremont boulevard is back open. it was shut down because because of a deadly crash. several vehicles collided. the driver of a toyota correia was killed. the other driver was not seriously hurt. investigators are still trying to determine how the crash happened and exactly who was at fault. a section of interstate 880 and fremont is back open after being closed for hour this is morning because of a truck crash that caused a hazmat scare this happened at mission boulevard when a truck crashed

went in there and they were mannequins. >> reporter: most thought all of the victims would have been burned beyond recognition because of the flames but that was not the case. >> everybody thought it was -- that they would be just unrecognizable and it was quite the opposite. so that was the tough part. the tough part was seeing that and -- recognizing that this is someone's loved one and then going home and watching the news and seeing the faces of the victims that we removed that was a hard one. that was hard. >> reporter: when the first respond s found a victim all work would stop. the coroner would be called in and they would take the body out. it was all done respectfully for the families. the firefighters worked in three hour shifts because of the mental and physical strain and one of the hard parts for them now is when something reminds them of what they saw
while they were inside. there. was a woman that had a piece of -- article of clothing on. weeks later. over in san francisco. i saw that article of clothing on. it's called a trigger. my hands start sweating my heart starts racing and i start -- i just need to get out of there. >> reporter: this picture was taken out side the warehouse in the middle of the recovery operation. that's the lieutenant with three comfort dogs. he said that it was the only time in three days they smiled. >> and so i went up to them and i -- i -- just knelt down and they came right up to me. just started petting themt. was just a nice moment to -- it was almost like are you in -- just another world. >> reporter: it's easy to think of first respond s as the people who run toward danger while everybody else runs away from it. first respond s are also human. being inside the warehouse and
finding those 36 bodies took a toll. >> reporter: i have a close group of friends. of guys and i say -- for the first probably two or three weeks i gave each of them the assignment to call me. every day. if i said i was doing fine i told them to say no, tell me how you are really doing. >> reporter: the lieutenant said that imagine that all first responders have an imaginary backpack on and every time they see something it goes in to the backpack. if they don't deal with those things interpret write soon their backpack gets heavy and starts to weigh them down. >> i always physical my crew, every once in a while open up that backpack. do it with a friend action a therapist, with someone and just take out one of those issues and start to deal with it. >> reporter: that's what the lieutenant is trying to do now by talking about the bodies of the young people that he saw during those three da
milies doing now. how their >> just so sorry. just my heart goes out to you. i wish that this never happened and i'm just so sorry. over 1,000,000 californians have gotten something that's been out of reach for far too long: health insurance. how? they enrolled through covered california. it's the health insurance marketplace where you'll find a range of plans from leading health insurance companies that offer you the best combination of quality, rates, and benefits. and, through covered california, you may get financial help to pay for coverage.
