passengers are experiencing major delays. >> reporter: yes, i checked the board. it looks as if they still have several details. one passenger plans to spend the night in a hotel because she would have arrived at her destination past midnight. she isn't the only one facing headaches at the ticket counter. united airline is in recovery mode after a computer glitch grounded all domestic flights throughout the county. passengers couldn't help, but be frustrated. >> reporter: we caught up with alyssa who was calling a hotel. her united airline flight was suppose to take off at 5:30 this evening. but because of numerous delays she wouldn't have gotten home until 1:00 in the morning. she is now hopping on a flight tomorrow. >> and then i got a hotel coupon, but the cheapest hotel
is $89. that doesn't really help me because now i have to pay $100 for something that's not my fault. i don't really want to spend the night in an airport. >> reporter: her flight is one of many flights delayed across the country after the chicago- based company grounded all domestic flights too to a technical glitch at 3:00 this -- flights due to a deck cal glitch at 3:00 this afternoon. united airline began boarding flights just before 6:00 this evening. this flight among 230 total flight delays at sfo today. whether maintenance issues are also to blame. an sfo spokesman says they had 18 flight cancellations total. seven of those united airline flights. >> it definitely shouldn't happen. they caused so much destruction. i'm not the only person here who has been affected by this. >> reporter: ian rhetoric has had a rough day. his flight from los angeles to sfo was delayed missing his connecting flight to dublin,
went on american airlines and to top it off he says it was a rocky flight due to the storm. >> the flight was horrific. >> it is one of the worse flights. >> reporter: the company did not provide many details about the technical glitch. the issue has been resolved and flights have been resumed. again those traveling in united airlines should check the status of their flight as they may experience additional delays with the trickle down effect. back to you. >> my understanding is if there is an incident that is weather related, for instance and not the airline's fault, they don't have to provide hotel vouchers or meal vouchers. but in this case it sounds like it is united's fought, some sort of a computer -- fault, some sort of a computer glitch. shouldn't she be able to say look i can't get a hotel for $89. you need to give me a bigger voucher. >> reporter: yeah, that is a
part of her frustration. she was trying to call around. she said this isn't enough. they did provide her that hotel voucher. but again as she does realize it wasn't enough money. i'm not sure if she went back. but as she was one of many who were frustrated tonight. that is key advice for the passengers who travel a lot. go back to the ticket counter and say look, $89 isn't going to give me a room, you need to bump it up. it is their fault. passengers need to go back to the airline to say you need to make accommodations for this. it is your fault. >> reporter: good advice, yes. >> all right, thank you. and now to the other big story tonight. the weather the bay area has been battered with heavy rain and strong winds causing some serious damage. power outages, car crashes, and down trees. >> take a look at this new video tonight out of the east bay. a massive tree toppled on top of five cars outside an italian restaurant in lafayette. luckily no one was hurt. caltrans said officials have
shut down interstate 80 for the second time tonight due to whiteout conditions there. it's been closed at the nevada state line. eastbound lanes have been closed at colfax. the california highway patrol said heavy snow and poor visibility lead to the closure. we are going to show you live pictures of the golden gate bridge. traffic hardly out there tonight, but the roadway is slick. the rain has let up at the bridge, but mark ibanez is here -- mark tamayo is going to tell us we will see more. >> reporter: more showers for your monday forecast. this is the third storm in a week. we've been talking about one, two, three moving in for today. we still have lingering activity behind it that will keep the showers going for the monday forecast. rainfall numbers are pretty impressive with over two inches of rain for santa rosa and san rafael. san jose with half an inch. we will be adding to the totals as we head into your monday forecast. a live camera outside looking towards the bay bridge. we are still tracking scattered showers across portions of the
bay area right now. as you can see for the satellite, the circulation up to the north. that produces a strong gusty wind out there. thankfully the winds have backed off a bit. no wind advisories, no high- wind warnings. but we still have this with the possibility of downpours in the forecast. that flash flood watch is in place until 6:00 tomorrow. so 6:00 p.m. they also have flood warnings as you can see closer to the county right around holster and -- hollister and up around here as well towards petaluma, out towards sebastopol as well. this is in place until 7:30 tomorrow morning. hopefully that will move up as well. but we still have rain showers to talk about. these are all the storm reports over portions of the bay area from earlier today. we just clicked on a few of these with a lot of hail reports for walnut creek at 3:52 out towards half moon bay. and out towards the beach at 2:37. so it seems like between about 2:00 to 4:00 we would have the most hail reports across portions of the region. right now we would have some
dry spots. we still have rain showers on out there coming in closer as you can take it out. in fact they would elude the maps to the east bay right now. you can see the coverage towards at least right around hayward and alamo just to the west of san ramon as well. more developments out offshore and also towards the east bay as we just showed you. but also out to the west. pushing the maps to the south. most of the organized rainfall right now. in the santa cruz mountains closer to morgan hill and gilroy. still talking about rain showers as a possibility for thunderstorms tomorrow. but then eventually we will dry out and talk more about that and the change for the forecast in a few. >> as mark just mentioned the weekend storm is causing a lot of damage in the santa cruz mountains as expected. check out the affected areas and break down the damage for us. >> bernie donner spent sunday afternoon digging ditches to prevent water from running off to their neighbors below the
hill. >> i mean come on, i will try to help us as much as possible. >> reporter: a landslide occurs once every winter. living up here for several years has prepared him for a lot of different weather. >> you are prepared. but there is always, you know, we have a leak in the roof. when we first built the house, they told us we didn't have to worry about the roof. well the wind blows the side up the roof. >> reporter: the wind on saturday night was pretty strong. >> the windows would go in and out. i mean they're maybe six by four windows and it blows so hard you feel it. >> reporter: when the rain came down so did a lot of other things. highway 17 was shut down by two landslides on either side of the highway. one lane was reopened by the afternoon. multiple trees and landslides also came down. bear creek road collapsed at two separate locations. eroded with the land.
the san lorenzo river widened considerably in the past three days, taking trees down with it. locals say they have not seen it this strong in years. >> reporter: on friday the playground left dirt and debris on the basketball court. landslides are harder to manage than the river. >> highway 9 closed twice this week already. a car was struck by a tree. >> reporter: the clean up is taking a little longer with efforts complicated by the rain. that is why donner says it is best he works on the road now. behind that fence is a san lorenzo river and all the debris that's piled up on the chain linked fence is the water mark. that's how high the water got up to on friday when it took over this park here. besides the water, the town here had trouble with high winds. there are several down power lines and trees. pg&e says they are working to restore power to almost 700
people. i'm leigh martinez ktvu fox 2 news. president donald trump reacted to the women marching in protest to his inauguration in washington, d.c. the president tweeted this morning after his first full day in power that peaceful protests are a hallmark of our democracy even if i don't always agree. i recognize the rights of people to express their views. yesterday's marches exceeded expectations with more than two million people around the world voicing their concerns. >> i can tell you president trump wants to be president for all people including every one of those marchers yesterday. i think overtime i think many of those people are going to be very proud of this president. >> the president made unity and healing a key part of his message after winning the election. the senate voting by large margins to approve former general james mattis to run the pentagon and form john kelly as the new secretary of homeland security. republican lawmakers are struggling to overcome some
roadblocks as the president's remaining cabinet nominees wait to be confirmed. we have more from washington. >> reporter: president trump begins the first full week of his administration with only two of his cabinet nominees confirmed. defense secretary james mattis and homeland security john kelly. that leaves the president without key positions at the state and treasury department. central intelligence agency, and the department that will likely overhaul the healthcare system health and human services. republicans point out eight years ago the senate confirmed seven of then the cabinet nominees. democrats are slowing the process because president trump's selections given their experience in wealth need a more thorough review. >> it is unlike any other we have seen. we call it a swamp cabinet, billionaires and bankers. it is very simple. there are more people with huge financial holdings, which they
have to invest under law so they don't have conflict of interest. this takes a tremendous amount of time. many of these nominees did not submit their ethics report, they did not sub is mitt their fbi reports. they were poorly prepared. these are all manufactured reasons to slow down the process because they don't want this administration to be treated like other administrations. >> reporter: republicans have enough senators to confirm the nominees. three had withheld their support though of rex tillerson as secretary of state because of the deep relationship he established with the russian government as ceo of exxonmobil. two of those republicans announced they will support tillerson's nominations. lindsey graham says, "though we still have concerns about his past dealings with the russian government and president vladimir putin, we believe mr. tillerson can be an effective advocate for u.s. interests." it's still unclear if senator marco rubio will join them in
support. rubio questioned tillerson during his confirmation hearing. in washington rich edson fox news. somehow this party was leaked out via social media. >> still ahead the party gets out of hand in the east bay. shots are fired by some uninvited guests. at 10:30 the string of events that sent one teen to the hospital. but first the death toll is rising. the dangerous storm that ripped through parts of the southeast. it's not done yet. more on the damage expected next.
back to a developing story from texas where at least one person is dead tonight after a jewelry store robbery in a shopping mall. it happened this afternoon at the rolling oaks mall in san antonio, texas. police say two robbers held up a kay's jeweler store. on the way out is when the shooting happened. >> we encountered two citizens. we tried to intervene. one of those citizens were shot by the suspect. the other citizen who tried to intervene had a concealed carry license ask and he shot the suspect. >> police say the wounded robber is in critical condition. the other one ran from the mall firing his weapon and injuring a man and a woman and he is still on the run tonight. >> it has been a devastating weekend to the south as they brace for another round of severe weather. the governor declared a state
of emergency after a tornado killed 11 people. another twister in mississippi is also blamed for four deaths and damaging hundreds of buildings. jonathan siri reports. >> reporter: more dangerous weather taking aim at the southeast. an apparent tornado leveled numerous mobile homes before dawn near adele, georgia. -- adel, georgia. resources were stretched thin. the georgia's governor has declared a state of emergency in several counties. many are dead especially in cook county where residents woke up to heavy damage and devastation. >> reporter: this system is the latest in multiple rounds of storms that started saturday afternoon. the violent weather is also being blamed for deaths in mississippi where early estimates show more than 300 homes and 30 businesses were damaged. >> we need to rebuild and stay strong. >> reporter: over the weekend there were more than 200 reports of severe weather and more than two dozen reports of tornadoes. in louisiana there have been
numerous reports of heavy damage to homes in northern parish. in texas tonya baker showing cell phone video shot by the contractor building her new house less than two miles away after another possible tornado destroyed three homes. power crews have already begun work reinserting the utility polls that were toppled during the storm. as you can see from all the devastation behind me it is going to take residents and property owners a long time to pick up all the pieces. in cook county, georgia fox news. sledding across highway 37 in marin county will keep it closed for the night. this is what it looked like earlier today just east of highway 101. after last night's rain the freeway flooded as you can see there. in the same area that caused a closure last week. one driver got stuck in deep water and was rescued, but the car is still there. you can see it in that video submerged. there is marsh land on either side of the highway and levies in the area overflowing. >> there is so much water it is
actually going over some of the levies. so right now really what we have to wait for them to do is allow this water to subside a little bit so that we can start pumping and getting some of the water on out of there. as long as they are coming over the levies we can't do anything. >> reporter: right now the westbound lanes of highway 37 are closed between lakeville road and highway 101. in the eastbound direction 37 is closed from 101. the marin chp will post updates on the highway on facebook and twitter. let's check in now with meteorologist mark tamayo with a number on how much rain we've got and the wind. >> yeah, the winds have been cranking up, but we still have downpours as a possibility for tonight and into tomorrow. wind speeds, they really have been ramped up yesterday. thankfully they backed off quite a bit and no longer a wind advisory or high wind warning. you can see some of the gusts over 60 miles an hour in the hills. san francisco 41 miles an hour. and fremont 37 miles an hour. outside right now looking out towards the bay bridge and
still a lot of moisture on the roadway with a lot of pedals out there. we'll add more rainfall at least scattered rain showers as we head into your monday. right now on storm tracker 2 still some dry spots up in the north bay. but as you move the maps around the coverage is increasing for the past few minutes with a good portion of san francisco. so we still have moderate rainfall and maybe considered borderline heavy towards the east bay from san ramon down to hayward and union city. then down to the santa cruz mountains, morgan hill and gilroy and snow levels are up above 3,000 feet where you see a little bit of the white on the radar right now. even in san jose showing you the coverage towards the east foothills. now the russian river has really been rising. in fact all the rivers have been. but you see them at guerneville. they should be cresting just below flood stage for monday morning 5:00 a.m. 30.8 feet and flood stage is 32. well below flood stage. in fact coming down to right around 13.5 feet tomorrow
morning. scattered showers for the forecast tomorrow. they could possibly be heavy at times as they head into your friday. here is the forecast model for your monday. it is not friday just yet, but your monday forecast showing you the scattered showers as a possibility of a thunderstorm. this is monday at 7:00 a.m. you will notice this is not completely over the region, but still moving through at 7:00 a.m. then at 12:00 and then into the afternoon hours by 5:00 we still have to hold on to the possibility of the showers or the thunderstorm. things will begin to change though late monday night into tuesday and headed into a bit of a drying trend. we will talk more about the big change for the weather pattern coming up in a few minutes. new tonight major league baseball suffers two tragedies and two separate incidents in the dominican republic at the same day. they are mourning one of their own the 25-year-old pitcher and the hard throwing pitcher was killed in a crash at the dominican republic. it is unknown what caused that crash as he played four seasons at the royals and appeared in two world series with the team.

same trend, but julio this time showing why many think he's the best in the business as a wide receiver. get off me. down the sideline, 73 yards, falcons soaring over the packers 31-0. jimmy carter on hand, he likes what he says. the 74-year-old falcon owner arthur black. that is my favorite shot of the day. he is the founder of home depot having a good time. well, crummy weather back in new england didn't seem to bother tom brady and company as they go to it again calling it a revenge season for tom brady because of deflategate to start the year. 16 yards up top to that guy chris hogan undrafted wide receiver at 180 yards and a couple of touchdowns. second quarter, brady is hands off. deandre lewis tosses it back for brady again. it works. hogan off the flee flicker. two and a half left.
