9:01 am
let's head to lisa argen for a quick look at the forecast. good morning, lisa. >> good morning, chris. hi, everyone. we have a brief break before another vigorous cold front heads our way. we are ranking this storm system as a 2. i'll have more in a few minutes. and outside your window you have the sunshine. earlier this morning we saw some pretty good showers move across the bay and even some embedded hail with that. so we are looking at anywhere from a half-inch to inch and a half of rain. we rank our storms from 1 to 5, 1 being the lightest and 5 being the strongest. and the winds will impact you again this evening. so not only do we have a wind advisory, we have a flash flood watch this effect from 6:00 tonight until early tomorrow morning. so with the soil already saturated, anywhere from 1 to 1g in the santa cruz mountains where they saw up to 6 inches of rain. we have a little bit of a break but the winds can create another round of problems tonight from
9:02 am
4:00 until 4:00 monday morning. and it still will be raining then. we will track it for you in just a few minutes. >> lisa, thank you. we've seen a number of storm related problems this weekend. a big mess in lafayette caused major frustration for residents trying to return to their homes. alyssa harrington is live in lafayette with more this morning for us. alyssa. >> people here have been without power since about 8:45 last night. pg&e crews are on the keep but they say this tree needs to be out of the road before they can restore power. that means that residents might not get their electricity back until 6:00 or 7:00 tonight. it's a long process to remove all this debris. workers have to untangle powerlines from tree branches. about 63 households have been without power more than 8 hours. yesterday a storm took down a
9:03 am
large tree at the end of the street. it crashed into a power pole, snapping it, and brought down dangerous lines around 8:45 last night. pg&e crews quickly deactivated those lines. people who live up here have been in the dark since then. they are especially worried about an elderly couple trapped into their home by the tree. >> a huge tree came down, access was completely blocked. we can't get in or out of their garage, captain access their garage. people who live here captain get out, only by bicycle. elderly neighbors with a caregiver. it's their tree that went down and broke through their fence. it's a pretty big mess. >> quail ridge road, dead end in both directions. that's the street that connects with this one here. a fire road has been opened up so that those residents can get in and out of the area. as you can see, debris covers the entire road. both lanes of traffic.
9:04 am
neighbors tell me this tree didn't fall on any homes or injure anybody so despite the inconvenience they feel pretty lucky this morning. live in lafayette, abc7 news. >> and those downed trees were a common occurrence in other parts of the bay area. and just how bad it was. >> the rain is making life missable. and they fall across two lanes of traffic on trial boulevard. driver of this s.u.v. tried to avoid it, but couldn't. >> when they turned to the left they hit the tree and they were stuck from behind. >> neither driver was hurt, but this car had a lot of damage. >> in orinda heavy rain brought down the massive tree. the tree took out powerlines leaving nearly 80 families in the dark
9:05 am
>> jack, this is mimi. i'm out in front of the house. >> but they are prepared. they are communicating through walkie-talkies and getting updates from one another. with the tree blocking the only road out of the neighborhood, getting information would otherwise be nearly impossible. >> how does it look to you? >> well, i haven't been out because the wires were clear across my bushes and my driveway and the firemen were here and they said don't come out of the house. >> we have cameras over the house and the fire going, and we are staying warm. >> pg&e called in extra crews to work on the downed lines. parents figured out a way to manage the unpredictable situation. >> they started parking on the streets and walking through because that's the only way to get out and people are going out and getting their kids and stuff like that. >> homeowners in miranda had their power restored early this morning. in walnut creek, abc7 news. >> in san francisco the storm's strong winds knocked down this tree at broadway and montgomery.
9:06 am
a pacesser by took these photos. you can see part of it is blocking the right-hand lane on broadway. >> take a look at this huge tree that fell in front of the san ramon police department. it happened last night and blocked the entire entryway to the building. you can see crews cutting off some of the branches to help with the removal. several police cars were parked outside of the building when it fell, but luckily no one was hurt. this map shows dozen of power outages throughout the bay area. at the height of the storm 56,000 customers were in the dark. right now about 4800 remain without power. the company has more than 200 crews spread out across the region to handle the outages. the city of san francisco is fighting water with more water. yesterday abc7 news was at mission where the first time they set up the temporary plastic flood barriers filled with water. this is an area prone to flooding and the hope is they will protect the buildings.
9:07 am
if it works, the city could order more for the next storm. bay area coastal communities were hit with rain and gale-force winds. abc7 news reporter sergio quintana has details from half moon bay and pacifica. >> sheets of rain and wind gusts took down tree branches in half moon bay. fire crews cleared a snapped tension line in one neighborhood and then the winds kicked up even more. up to 48 miles per hour in some places. it's caused power outages and triggered other emergencies. a large part of the harbor went dark, including an indian restaurant that had to finish the business day by flashlight. these two took shelter at the local seafood house where there was still power. >> i don't like the wind at all. i don't like the wind. in fact, one of our branches broke, which made me sad. >> we are doing fine. we have done a lot of work on the house the last year to make sure it was safe anyway. >> the two flags blowing in the wind at the harbor masters
