6:00 am
. good morning. a crash on a major freeway is going to be there for hours and that is going to be tough driving in oakland as you try to get up to downtown. and we are live this morning at the orrville dam where heavy rain is falling but the work continues here. to try to repair that damaged emergency spillway. we will tell you what water officials are saying about the stability of that spillway coming up. >> and a high-rise emergency. people in one san francisco building still under evacuation orders. the work set to begin right now. mornings on 2 continues. >> this is ktvu mornings on 2. >> good morning. thank you for joining us thursday morning. friday eve. february 16 pght. i'm pam cook. >> good morning. i'm dave clark. we are looking outside. >> we are. rain and wind for the morning
6:01 am
drive is definitely the big storyt. looks pretty toward the city and the bay bridge. it's very windy, particularly on the bridges this morning. >> it's -- pretty dangerous. steve is here. the latest on your weather and the the forecast where we are headed. >> strongest rain has moved through. >> it has. that's the good news. it's still rather windy. i would pencil in a very windy friday. that's the way it looks for us. extremely heavy rain. we will see some tomorrow. louis says steve, i can report heavy rain and wind in san carlos. that was at 3:30 and 4:00 a.m. very spooky. should be quieter right now but yes that's correct. system has gone through. there is still light rain. lake orrville has picked up. last i checked about a quarter inch much of rain. the lake level has dropped. now 32 feat from where it was on sunday. there will be the update in about ten minutes.
6:02 am
maybe at 869. the cfs of 117,000. the system over the feather falls and it'll probably see that taper off. there is a lot more on the way newspaper to lake county. northern napa and into sonoma county. santa rosa north. south of that pretty quiet. at least a little bit oakland, over to the pen slam the main system has gone through. you can see it's now east of fremont. san jose, stilling rain on the peninsula. heaviest rain morgan hill. most of it is out to the valley. 50s on the temperatures. warm with this southerly breeze that. will be with us most of the morning i would think and then tomorrow could be really windy day. just so you know. you can see how the system has gone through but there is still some rain behind that. draw your attention to this system. this a power house which will be mainly central and southern california. this could be the biggest two daisies temperature for southern california since december 2010. if you were going down there
6:03 am
today would be a good day. tomorrow could be tough. sal you have many issues. >> yeah. >> one big one. >> so does the traffic. northbound 880 as you drive up to the -- up to downtown oak hand. the biggest traffic issue is a truck that flipped on its sidet. happened about an hour ago. traffic is going to be affected. you can see it's nar are rowing down to the two left lanes. this trailer flipped over. looks like the other part also flipped over as well or the tractor up there. it's hard to tell. the traffic is narrowed down to three lanes here and it's going to be very slow as you drive up to oakland from the area. i will say that traffic is evening out here but 580 is still a good alternate. let's talk about it as an alternate. we can go on 580 westbound it looks good to the lake shore area many we have had a couple
6:04 am
minor incidents, nothing major. i want to mention 580 near regada. we had several vehicles spin out coming up toward the richmond bridge. in fact so many vehicles have spun out just after the hoffman split that chp has been running traffic breaks, holding traffic, they don't want people to spin out. there is a large puddle there and it's not doing well with traffic eastbound by the way coming this way is okay. that's just a bad drive. we go to the santa cruz mountains. northbound 17 through scott's valley. it's very slow for another day. as you come up on the slide repair area. doesn't seem to be any relief there. . that is backed up for about a 20, 25 minute delay before you make it onto the span. let's go back to the desk. all week we have been following emergency situation at the orrville dam. the lake level dropped but the rain is coming down there right now. more rain is in the forecast. alex savage up in orrville
6:05 am
again where repairs to that emergency spillway continue. how is it going through? >> reporter: you know the rain is sort of let up just a bit. we had a real heavy round of rain move through. it is still coming down in a pretty good pace. there is no sign that the work is going to let up any time soon. we are here at the viewing area right above the orrville dam that's been turned into sort of the staging area for this whole operation. you can see the work is continuing. dump many trucks are coming in and out of this parking lot here. continuing to pick up dump loads of -- loads of large rocks and those sandbags and they are bringing them down to that emergency spillway that they are -- trying to shore up because of the rain moving in and -- also because of -- future runoff. they are concerned about. this work has been happen around the clock ever since this past weekend. they have been trying to shore up that dirt hillside that is the secondary spillway attempt
6:06 am
was eroking over the weekend and there were concerns it could give way and that's what led to the evacuation orders that we saw. those have since been lifted. state water firm officials stay they can of the that the runoff from the upcoming storms in this area will not be enough to cause further damage. they feel confident in the repair work and at the same time water is being released from lake orrville at more than 100,000cubic feet a second. we are still removing more water from the reservoir than we would receive by the storm --. >> safety is the number one priority. that's what we will continue to do. >> reporter: in orrville people living down river remain on edge after the -- as the storms move in. the mandatory evacuees order was lifted two days ago and businesses are starting to reopen. customers starting to return to
6:07 am
stores. people have sandbags set up just in case there is flooding those mandatory evacuation orders were lifted but the sheriff up here in butte has warned everybody they do need to be prepared just in case there is any sort of situation that arises with that emergency spillway and they have to ask people to leave again. they want everybody to be ready to go. pam again the story up here at the orrville dam is that the rain has arrived. its been heavy at times but as you can clearly see by the backlog of large dump trucks the work is going on. we are going to stay up here and keep monitoring it and see how much longer they will do this repair work at a certain point. have you to imagine that the wet weather may hurt their efforts. >> certainly. i would imagine. thank you. we are check in with you later. also you can down load the free ktvu weather app for the latest on the storm. it'll be raining off and on from now until next tuesday.
6:08 am
our weather app includes live radar and that extended forecast. we are following a developing story in san francisco. a huge piece of construction equipment on top of a high-rise in the south of market area has now been stabilized. the work will begin later this morning to try to remove it. it's a concrete pumping structure. it's on top of a condo building. at one point it was tilting. firefighters worried could fall off the building. fire crews evacuated nearby buildings. they closed off surrounding street as a precaution. people were allowed back into that area. after they determined there was no immediate danger of that structure falling. wood and metal are being used to shore up the platform under that pump. >> once they -- the platform is stabilized that pump will have to be cut from its base. the crane that is sitting next to 2 will attach to that and it'll be lowered to the ground.
6:09 am
>> the assistant fire chief said that the pump will probably be removed sometime this morning. the street will stay closed between first and second streets until later today. >> also happening today there is a nationwide boycott called a day without immigrants. many immigrants will stay home from work to protest the president's policies on immigration. it is designed to show how important they are to the united states and how the american economy would suffer without them. immigrants being urged to not go to work, not to buy anything in a store or online, not to eat out at any restaurant and for students not to go to class. some bay area restaurants are closed today. restaurants like the one in oakland and saffron in san carlos said they are participating in the day without immigrants. still ahead the president is due to take his first action

6:12 am
. let's go back to breaking news in oakland. self lanes of northbound 880 in oakland are closed. a big rig flipped over. >> yeah. sal has opinion covering and now allie is there live along 880. how -- we can see it behind
6:13 am
you. how is traffic? >> reporter: there is a little bit of an improvement when it comes to lane closures. all but the far right lanes on northbound 880 just before the oak street off ramp is open. you can see behind us why this one lane is closed. northbound 880 just before the oak street off ramp. i want to bring in the sergeant with the chp. this driver was injuried it happened. how is he doing? >> is he doing well. just has some major injuries but was ejected from the truck and landed on the off ramp down below. >> he fell over the side of this. this is a high -- a hiram many. how far did he fall? >> that's about 40 feet drop. medical aid was given and he was transported to highland hospital. >> reporter: deexplain what happened? >> a little bit of weather related. had a bit of a puddle.
6:14 am
wet roadway. slid into the truck next to him. then ended up on the shoulder and tried to regain control of the truck that caused it to turnover and then --. >> reporter: a big traffic back up. any idea what the time to reopen the far right lane and have this going through smoothly? >> we are looking about two hours now. we have this slow lane closed. we have all the people on scene and need to up right the truck. >> reporter: the tow truck is here. it's a question of how you will dot. what are the challenges in getting up righted? >> one challenge is going to be getting it up righted without disturbing the load that's inside the truck and/or breaking the trail ear. >> reporter: having everything spill out on the freeway because you would have to close more lanes. >> yeah. >> reporter: sergeant with chp thank you for talking with us this morning. you heard him mention another two hours. that is the estimate to have all lanes of northbound 880 -- reopened again. again this -- all because of a
6:15 am
big rig that jackknifed. 4:30 this morning. may have been weather related. he he may have hit a puddle and lost control. happened at 4:30 this morning. but for the next two hours there will be traffic backed newspaper that area. >> that is not of the morning drive. thank you. let's go right to sal then. you need to help people get around it. >> i can give you the alternate. the back up to where allie is and that crash is northbound on 880 has backed up for almost two miles which is not as bad as i thought it with be. that's good but i don't think you want to be in this traffic. want you want to do is use 580 westbound as the alternate. it doesn't look bad in san l, andro. slowing here and there but for the most part it doesn't look bad driving through. that would be a great alternate for now. 580 westbound. they have opened up one lane again. there was so much water that several wars were spinning out.
6:16 am
this was a terrible drive. one way is to go up 80 and get back on the freeway. or just put off the trip for a little bit until the rain moves through. chp is there. they just tweed one lane is reopened see that on their dismatch. i want to not forget santa cruz mountains in case were you wondering. it's another bad day. northbound 17 coming up to the mountains. because of slide repair and the weather. northbound 17 we have some big delays from santa cruz over to los gatos. let's bring this plaza back to show you what it's like. it's a 20 to 25 minute delay at the toll plaza. steve has been looking at the weather and it's not raining as hard as is it was earlier this morning. >> or anywhere else. that's the good news. the chp officer who said i think it'll be a problem tomorrow. he was spot on. >> that's right. >> he was right on. >> i will remember. >> we will get to it here.
