sinkhole today that was so severe prompted the state of emergency. the whole emerged one week ago and today crews installed pumps to divert the creek water away from the road. if more rain raises the water level it will take longer to fix then anticipated estimating one month or more. i hope we can weather the storm.>>reporter: we should be able to. >> another storm related fix is a large fence was installed along highway 17 in the santa cruz mountains where a rockslide to crush the van last week and that project is expected to cost $1 million. the rain is causing traffic issuu might imagine around the bay area. this is a life look at terstate 80 in berkeley -- live look at interstate 80 and it is bumper-to-bumper on both sides and slow along 80.

terrorist organization. she will remain in jail without bail for another two week. federal prosecutors accused noor salman of helping her husband carry out the deadliest mass shooting in u.s. history killing 49 people at the polls make club shooting in orlando, he pledged allegiance to isis during the attack before police killed him. they also accused noor salman of lying and misleading investigators, she was arrested at her family home in rodale monday morning nearly 7 months after the shooting. if convicted she could face life in prison. >> they are very serious charges. the government bears a heavy burden and it's beyond a reasonable doubt. >>reporter: the indictment against noor salman offers few details about how she could be involved but more information could come to light at her bail hearing in a few weeks. >> there is supposed to be a
pitch by the government arguing that she is a threat to the government.>>reporter: ultimately it's up to the judge to figure out if this is true and the attorneys told me that the case will move to florida eventually so it's likely that if she's granted bail she will either have to travel to florida or agree to live in florida for the remainder of the case. in oakland, trend 22. we are joined by michael cardoza, legal analyst, the case will go to florida but before it does the bail hearing will be here in oakland. the defense today alerted the judge that they want a portion of her day to be blocked out because they plan on bringing witnesses and evidence into court to argue for bail. this is a serious charge, do you think she has a chance to be out on bail pending trial? >> i can tell you when i deal with federal courts or state
courts, state courts have a less likelihood to reduce bail, federal court i call it the kind of gentle bail and i think they are going off the top hill. there is evidence against her. >> if you look at the main charge obstruction is one thing that aiding and abetting a terrorist organization, i would think that the charge itself which has the ultimate penalty of life in prison could trigger an automatic no bail. >> you would think it was what people are entitled to bail, what the judge will be if they decide to set it will be astronomical. maybe they can pull something off and bring in great witnesses. >> they will say she's a good person and she's not going to run and will give up her passport, i believe it will fall on deaf ears, this is terrorism and we are all sensitive to that. this is a case out of florida
where we had a federal magistrate here that will decide and florida is looking at us and saying don't be setting bail. >> they sent their attorneys out today and there was a florida representative. if you are a prosecutor here one of the things is how did she help her husband? the indictment is vague and to think they will have to show their cards a little more with the judge. this is why we think she's a potential threat. >> i would think they would have to do a little bit of this if the defense puts on a good showing and some of the things that i have heard, this is a crux to the case, if she told the police that i knew he was going to go out and do something like this and i tried to stop him but i did not, that will sink her shipwright there. it will sink her. in a trial it will have a devastating effect whether it
is aiding and abetting is a different question.'s like that a juror will listen to and say wait a minute, you knew that he was going to do it and you did nothing? 49 people are dead. >> yes that is the bottom line. 49 innocent people were killed at the hands of her husband, what if anything she knew will be tough for her. >> this is a fun case to follow, i am anxious for this year and in florida because we are dealing with terrorism and i will tell you, the feds are sending a message to people, they are saying you know about terrorist you better report it or we are coming after you. i'm surprised they did not go after the people down south in riverside when they had the shooting rampage with his wife, why didn't they go after the parents? i do not know but this is a federal message. if you know, you better report it or we are coming after you if we can prove this. >> thank you michael cardoza. >> you're welcome. coming up, and investigation the north bay after bomb threat was called

democrats. the presidential candidate bernie sanders are former presidential candidate, hitting hard on tom price and what is your stance? do you think that healthcare is a right. what are your thoughts on this discussion? >> nothing unexpected, the questioning has been and should be hard and direct. it is not unusual during the obama presidency the republican senators were just as tough on nominees. we should not be surprised. the other thing is whether the nominees are in lockstep with donald trump is an issue that we are hearing something about. as americans we should be pleased that they are speaking their own mind and the only problem would be if trump said i do not want you going in this direction. so far we are getting a lot of candor out of these nominees and that is healthy. >> that's what we want to see, we want to see varying opinions obviously and some type of
agreement on the issues. specifically we talked about nikki haley talking about the muslim registry and we don't believe in this in the u.s. and trump having said different things in the past. >> absolutely, as these people are nominated and then confirmed, they are going to set their own agenda. the president of course will go back and forth with them. this is why people might be overreacting a little bit, it is time to let the process play out and see what people are putting into place, how they respond to things that come before them. that is the important thing.>> let's move on to president obama's final press conference in the room where these press conferences have been held. i know donald trump talked about having these meetings somewhere else. >> first of all, the white
house press room is small and anyone that has been there knows that, there's a lot more people that want to get in there then comfortably can. on the other hand there is a statement made when you send the media over here and say the proximity to power is the whole thing. being able to watch people come and go is important. we don't know if they will take this decision.>> it was a good time for president obama to say thank you to the media and holding those accountable. in doing due diligence in reporting whether he agreed are not. obviously we are seeing a different tone when it comes to donald trump and his thoughts on the media, him speaking about twitter today which we thought was interesting saying i don't really like twitter but i need to get the right information out. >> the media gives false information was his point. >> i think the president was trying to solidify the importance of the media and
maybe in a small way stick it to trump a little bit. >> lots more to discuss i'm sure but we will definitely have to see what happens of these confirmation hearings. >> people should look at these, there is a lot of information there. thanks so much. okay ted. still to come, the search for head coach narrows in the 49ers search for a general manager, this search remains wide open and we break down the candidates after the break. and in whether rainfall continues to move in, this is storm number one, we have a flood advisory to talk about and we talk about the heavy downpours and 2 more to talk about in the 5 day forecast.
baseball hall of fame class of 2017 has been announced and once again barry bonds was not select did. >> this years classes different but the headline for us is no berry. >> you know it's getting harder and harder to discern who should and should not be in. hall of fame voting has been a dilemma for the baseball writers of america ever since players have become eligible for the hall. until this year the steroid users most notably, barry bonds, have come up considerably short of the hall of fame induction. this changed today.
meet the class of 2017. in the 10th and final year of eligibility they received 86% of the votes. this was a seven-time all-star and 1986 batting champion and is fifth on the all-time stolen bases list. jeff bagwell is also part of the hall in 2017 and with 80% of the vote he spent his career with the houston astros where he was a four-time all-star. there were whispers of performance-enhancing drugs. and the third inductee this year had outright shouts, yvonne rodriguez joins johnny vance is the only catcher. he was a 14 year all-star and became suddenly slim when the league tested for ped's. he was part of the successive rangers team that was accused of rampant shoes of steroids.
the exit a barry bonds becomes more glaring. barry bonds received less than 54% of the votes that's up 10% from last year but well short of the needed 75%. the question to all baseball fans now is how can one of the fellow faces of the area be included with the area when baseballs all-time home run leader is not. this is the hall of fame process. >> i don't know how you can look at it any other way and i can see why you would be concerned it's difficult to judge if they had not been part of the sarah >> he was a hall of famer before steroids with the basis of what he was able to do but i can understand how there was this close -- clause about integrity would say wait everyone out. but now how can they justify
barry bonds. >> barry bonds was not so much, hard to get along with. in the grid example is ted williams who should've been a first ballot hall of famer. and there could've been an icy relationship with the media. if rodriguez is in there is no longer an excuse for bonds, mcgwire, sosa, you can go on, the same people that were part of the era that would be hall of famer's. >> okay, switching gears, the 49ers searching for a head coach and general manager. the head coach seems to be narrowing. >> still confusing process and we go from one process described as a mockery to another. the 49ers search for general manager and a coach and then a coach and a general manager and here is the latest on top and maybe the only head-coaching candidate, kyle shanahan.
it was reported that within the organization, shanahan is expected to take the 49er job. federal coaches all but congratulated him on the position in the falcons was the packers in the championship game. shanahan cannot talk any further until atlanta loses or in the by week before the super bowl. the general manager search is producing these names, brian is the current director of college scouting for the packers and he was trained in part by former general manager scott mcluhan and also in contention is elliott wolf, the son of longtime general manager, ron wolf, inducted into the pro football hall of fame in 2015. one other name in the mix is george payton of the vikings. he has 20 years of nfl experience and has worked for most of his career alongside rick spielman. you can either look at this
process is the 49ers searching for people that are good enough to be with teams to be in the playoff or as the last team standing in the coaching carousel and that leaves them with just about no leverage. >> >> they've artie had a couple of notes. >> it's a carousel and we are just trying to stay on board.>> going over to mark now we will get the latest on the storm. the first of three pounding us. >> this is coming in a little earlier than expected and still coming in. take a look outside and the commute will be an extra challenge for this evening, this is the bay bridge toll plaza and the rain drops here and showing you 880 in oakland.
it is shaking around a little bit and the wind has ramped around and we do have a wind advisory to talk about. in terms of the flooding potential we do have this urban and small stream flood advisory to reflect the possibility for the entire bay area or most of the bay area until 8:15 pm so basically this is happening right now into the early evening hours. there is the coverage here in the bay area, we are covered in green and also out towards the sierra we we have this snowfall. we are starting to get snow reports and this is showing up in san francisco with flooding at cns. highway 101 at venice. you can see for this portion as we try to get closer detail but also reports of flooding in the north bay. they have picked up the heaviest downpours all afternoon and santa rosa 1 point 80 inches over the past 24 hours. there's a break over san francisco but still coverage towards the east bay and then moving closer to palo alto there is light rain and you can
pick out some coverage towards the santa cruz mountains and the wind speed has been up there. wind gusts in fairfield at 48 miles per hour and that wind advisory is verifying and you can see this gusting to 45 at last check. >> this will also be a snow producer in the sierra and a winter storm warning plays right now until 12 pm thursday and this could be around 10 to 20 inches and last week was a miracle. here is storm number one for today. another one for thursday night into friday and then potentially saturday into sunday so they are lining up in the pacific. with rainfall potential this is the first one that you could see there and most areas fall within this range and the one on sunday could potentially be stronger. when you add this up it could lead to the possibility of
flooding mudslides as we had through the weekend. the russian river has been going up and tested to crest just below flood stage sometime thursday night. we will have to keep an eye on this system as we had through sunday. >> we are tonight and tomorrow morning we could have more showers rotating through. there's a possibility of a thunderstorm and this could trigger heavier downpours. later in the day thursday and thursday night into friday morning the second storm comes on board and lingering rain showers throughout the day. will probably have more brakes and a chance of more showers but later in the day into saturday night or sunday we are talking about this final system. temperatures for tomorrow there's lots of 50s out there in the main rain focus is in the afternoon. i believe you can get outside for a few breaks on thursday. more rain clouds especially for friday morning and again into sunday morning. the one good thing about these
systems is last week they just stalled over the pacific. these are progressive and moving through. >> this looks like the sunday deal and when you stock this and added on top that's a lot. >> all the more reason to watch football. >> thanks mark. frank joins us now with the stories that we are working on for ktvu fox 2 at 5 pm. coming up tonight at 5 pm, the stories of 3 the area residents do plan on being there when donald trump becomes the 45th president of the u.s. >> and a scary scenario for a bay area woman. >> like a scene out of the horror movie when a woman is in the sharon his glass breaking, it happened to be one of five
san francisco city leaders and bike advocates are lobbying against the proposed bike sharing program coming to the city, a chinese company called blue gogo wants to put thousands of bikes on streets but city officials are concerned because they do not use kiosks they simply place bikes at various locations and users download an app to find a black and unlock it.
city officials say this could obstruct the sidewalks and poses a the hazard. >> there lawlessness will not be tolerated, we will compensate and impound the bikes and sell them. we will use the money to start cracking down on bike chop shops. >> there you have it, they sent a letter saying the company must get the proper permits and i hope that's not what it looks like it would be quite the mess. they must comply with city laws if they want to operate in the city. the nfl is denying a report the lady gaga was told not to talk politics at the super bowl halftime show. this started after a source was cited saying lady gaga was told not to bring up the election or mention president elect donald trump during her performance. she was an outspoken supporter of hillary clinton during the race and the nfl called the report nonsense from people trying to stir up controversy where there is none. remember you can watch the
