literally so much debris. there's litter, hazardous waste. we'll continue to follow the story because the flood cleanup is such an important topic right now. we want the go to meteorologist kari hall monitoring that weather and the good thing, kari, we have seen most of the storms move out of the area for now. >> we have seen light and spotty showers moving through. here is a look at storm ranger. as we were seeing some of scattered showers, mostly for the peninsula and thenal for the east bay to ndnd on. lighter. we have seen much of the rain in the north bay and where we see the green mostly a light shower moving through. we can see the system across the region and still bringing unsettled weather in the day and we can see all the cloud cover over san jose right now. so as we go into the rest of the day, just kind of plan on for the possibility of some light quick moving showers. other than that, it does stay mostly cloudy and cool as a cold front continues to dip in and
keeping the rain chances in the forecast heading into the evening. kind of off and on. mostly cloudy and still even early tomorrow we may have some of that light rain moving through. i'll be tracking that, also a look at the saturday forecast and includes another round of rain. that's coming up in just a few mis.chkari. >> marsh creek road is closed. we got an update from county public works saying rock slides cons overnight. the crews are cleaning up this morning. the hope is reopen this afternoon and to monitor after that happens. the road is closed in both direction. tired and smiling this mornings after marathon negotiations for an east bay school district. the 13-hour meeting ended with tentative agreements of teachers and the district. nbc bay area's sharon katsuda is there for us. there's a sticking point in the
specifically comment on the sticking point but the union says it is over class size reduction. teachers let educators, parents and students know what they are fighting for, more pay and librarians, counselors and smaller class sizes for the district's 32,000 students. the district says both sides signed 11 different tentative agreements. >> we are in agreement that class sizes are something that are important. and we're continuing our conversations. >> in my math class there's like 40 kids and there's 1 teacher and hard for 1 teacher to control all of us at one time. >> reporter: no word on when noerkt negotiators will go back to the bargaining table but a teacher strike is possible in the district and we are told that strike could take place by the end of april and of course tist
to focus on successful negotiations. reports live in danville, nbc bay area news. they efully it ends with decithanyou so much, sharon. let's jump back to the story of earlier. officials are holding a special meeting in the north bay to figure out what to do after the flooding there. we think we worked out the problems with pete suratos. standing by in santa rosa. pete? >> reporter: yeah. good morning to you, laura. as i was mentioning in the last live report there, you got the sonoma county board of supervisors holding a special meeting in santa rosa. it is still going as we speak. there's a public comment taking place an they want to provide folks with an up date on what's going on with the cleanup efforts and the debris you are seeing around town. you guys are seeing some of that video. that's in guerneville. tons of debris literally throughout the city and the
county and as a result of massive flooding of russian river. as far as the board of supervisors thisrning, they first ratified a prok clamation calling it a health hazard. so we're talking about lighter fluid, paint thinners, used oil. it's swirling around in sonoma county. there are drop-off bins around the county and the plan is to transition to curbside ideas and to expedite the cleanup. the cost as they mentioned in the meeting is just over $1 million. but it could come down as much as 75% if the county gets federal help. getting federal help is the big question because all that is still up in the air. >> treat different disaster victims differently. right?
that's essentially what happens in the federal system. you have one person who lost everything and one person who lost everything and might not be treated the same way at all just based on the scale of the disaster. >> reporter: now, as far as the estimated costs for sonoma county, we are told it's roughly $155 million and it could go up and they could use the federal funding and the goal is to clean up all of the debris in the next two weeks. we are live here in santa rosa, pete suratos, n bay area news. >> thank you, pete. new at 1:00, we got word that richmond high school is closed for a second day in a row. there were problems with repairs overnight following a power outage. they say they have identified the reason and working to fix it. yesterday we reported that classes were canceled. the man who helped president trump become president is going to jail. >> but that's what we know but the question is long? former trump manager, campaign
manager paul manafort will be in court in a little more than an hour. scott mcgrew, he could face life in prison. >> he, laura, almost 70 years old right now and whatever the sentence he gets could be, indeed, the rest of his life. keep in mind, this is not the only court sentencing him. he is guilty in two separate cases. in federal court in virginia, manafort faces between 19 to 25 years in prison after he was convicted of tax fraud and bank fraud. next week we expect he will be sentenced in the court in washington, d.c. in that other case. the first sentence should come to about 12:30 our time. nbc will have a special report when it does. this pomorning, president trump tweeted about a text he wrote to michael cohen and said it was not a campaign contribution. there was no violation of law by me. fake news. cohen said it was payback for money to keep two women quiet.
spending money on something that helps your campaign, in fact, h here's the check, or prevents damage to your campaign, is a contribution nohat you call it. but beyond that, this is really a remarkable tweet because the president is acknowledging the text. remember in the past he said he knew nothing about it. no, he said. that was on board air force one last year. he wasn't telling the truth of money. from the current lawyer rudy giuliani who sort of just blurted it out last spring on tv. marcus? >> never ending saga there, scott, thank you. journalists tracked by homeland security were subject to extra screening covering the migrant caravan heading to the border. >> in investigative unit at siv
