no word on any injuries. in the past 30 minutes new details on a dui arrest involving a tesla driver. >> the man was asleep behind the wheel at the car's auto pilot -- and the car's auto pilot feature was on. we just got the mugshot into the newsroom. he is alexander samek who chairs the planning commission for the city of los altos. kpix5's len ramirez on how in this instance the car's technology may have saved the man's life. len? >> reporter: that's right. we know how bad it can be if a driver falls asleep on the highway while driving, but in this case the chp says the man's car, a tesla, might have had the auto pilot feature on and that may what about kept the car tracking along in a straight line even at 70 miles per hour. now that technology could be the reason the man says still alive tonight, but it could also be the reason why he fell asleep in the first place. 45-year-old alexander samek of los altos was the person behind the wheel of the tesla, but the
chp says the car was driving all by itself. >> it's great that we have this technology. however, we need to remind people they need to be responsible. >> reporter: the unusual incident happened on 101 on whipple road at 3:30 in the morning. a chp officer pulled up along the tesla model s and noticed the driver sleeping while the car was speeding along at 70 miles per hour. >> the unit came up in front of the vehicle and basically started slowing down. that actually worked and officers went up to the driver's side and basically started trying to wake up the driver. >> reporter: the chp says samek failed a field sobriety test and was arrested, handcuffed and booked into jail on suspicion of dui. tesla is not commenting on the story. >> there you go. >> reporter: but tesla drivers are defending the car's technology. >> this guy, he actually saved his life and possibly somebody else's because he had a self- drive vehicle. >> reporter: san jose real estate broker joel wyrek is on
his second tesla and showed us how auto pilot works. >> hands free. i'm monitoring. just for the record now, i mean obviously you can always take control, so i'm watching it and paying attention so that we are being safe. >> reporter: the car easily handled the curves and the straights changing lanes, slowing down and accelerating to keep up with traffic. >> drivers really have to pay attention. they really do because when it's this convenient where the car is going to do all these things, it's not out of the question for somebody to fall asleep. it really isn't. >> reporter: mr. samek is the chair of the los altos planning commission. he is facing a dui charge and possibly other charges as well. the chp is investigating the car's memory bank and other technology associated with that system to see whether or not he was on auto pilot at the time he was pulled over. reporting live in san jose, len ramirez, kpix5. >> thanks. we're getting some dramatic new video this evening showing the moment a powerful
earthquake struck alaska. >> an earthquake! fricking earthquake, oh, crap, what the heck? fricking earthquake, oh, my gosh. >> people did panic. the magnitude 7.0 quake rattled homes and businesses across the city of anchorage this morning creating chaos all over the city. >> this was the moment the quake struck at anchorage international airport. the shaking was so strong the person who recorded this video couldn't seem to stand up as lights start flickering. folks all over anchorage were without power. >> i grew up in caliwathe althe was so dark here. the sun hadn't risen. so you really couldn't get light from outside the window either. >> take a look at the
aftermath. several major roadways crumbled and buckled. some highways collapsed so badly cars had nowhere to go. some people said they didn't think that they would make it. >> we did speak to the individuals that were inside the vehicle when it happened. they were on their way to the airport. they are okay, no injuries. it was -- they said it was an interesting event. they said that it felt like the axles gave out on their vehicle. they were swerving all over the road and then everything started to sink. they thought that the road might collapse on top of them. >> traffic has been at a standstill in parts of glenn highway. you can see car after car backed up as other parts of the highway remain shut down due to damage. >> the massive earthquake was centered 10 miles northeast of anchorage, which is alaska's largest city. the quake sent thousands of people running for cover. >> workers at this cafe hid under tables as light fixtures swung above them. you can see them holding onto the sides of the table preparing themselves for the
aftershock. >> former alaska governor sarah palin said she and her family are safe, but her home sustained damage. we're covering all the angles developing out of alaska it evening. >> we have team coverage on the quake starting with kpix5's julie watts at the usgs office in menlo park. >> reporter: this region is no stranger to earthquakes. usgs says there's been at least 15 magnitude 6 earthquakes or greater in the last century, but this one is relatively unique because while it did happen right along a subduction zone, it wasn't exactly a subduction earthquake. >> this is one of our cameras in the studio. >> reporter: from the cbs television station to cafes, broken glass and damage is everywhere. this chilling image of a car stranded on a buckled roadway provides a glimpse of what was going on far beneath the earth. >> it's a little bit different
kind of earthquake. >> reporter: typically alaska sees subduction zone earthquakes where the pacific plate is diving under the north american plate. >> this earthquake occurred within the subducting pacific plate. >> reporter: within the plate itself. >> yes. >> reporter: but usgs geophysicist brian kilgore says that portion of the plate is far beneath the north american plate and directly underneath anchorage which he says ultimately impacted the location of the epicenter. so instead of the earthquake being here for a subduction zone earthquake, it's here in the plate underneath? >> yes. >> reporter: while the earthquake seemed to go on forever, kilgore says that's not necessarily due to the size of the 7.0 magnitude earthquake alone. >> a lot of things factor into the shaking you experience. >> reporter: he notes the type of building, the type of ground and the proximity to the epicenter all play a role in just how severe the shaking is and with this quick center just 3 miles from anchorage 25 miles deep, strong shaking and damage
was widespread. usgs models predict hundreds of aftershocks are possible and they could continue for weeks, though there's a very small percentage of chance that any of those aftershocks will be as big as that initial earthquake. in menlo park, julie watts, kpix5. let's bring brian hackney into the conversation. brian, you've studied earthquakes for years and years and years. as she said, they're no stranger to earthquakes in this region, but anchorage? >> this is evidence of it. that's the biggest quake ever recorded in north america. the good friday quake, march 27th, 1964, was a magnitude 9.2. that's 2,000 times bigger than the quake that hit today. now that was 75 miles east of anchorage. this one was in the vicinity, 7 or 8 miles north of anchorage, 2,000 times less energetic. if you go back to 1964, the 24 hours after that quake there
were 11 magnitude 6 plus aftershocks. in fact, with today's quake there is a one in four chance of a quake as big as magnitude 6. i think there's a chance to as many as 20 aftershocks in the next few weeks. last last is an area loaded with seismic energy. if you -- alaska is an area loaded with seismic energy. most of them have hit in that part of the san andrea which is locked and loaded and than the quake in 1906, the tsunami from the 1964 quake caused far more deaths. that 9.2 quake had 140 people die as a result, but only 15
from that massive quake. the rest were killed by tsunami. that 1964 tsunami was caused mostly by a massive undersea landslide in port valdez triggered by the quake and hours and hours later that tsunami killed 13 sight seers all the way over in crescent city in california who came out to look at the tsunami. alaska figures big in the list of those quakes in north america and so it will be no surprise to find that there will be plenty of aftershocks after this. i'll tell you one thing that did surprise me. nobody has been reported killed yet especially because some people haven't done what you should do after an earthquake, duck, cover and hold. you don't run outside of a building when the building is shaking. it's a great way to get hit by stuff falling off the building. that's what killed two people about 15 years ago during an earthquake. during the shaking you duck, cover and hold especially while the shaking is continuing and
in 1964 that shaking lasted 4 1/2 minutes. >> really scary, brian, especially when you look back at the history. we appreciate it. thanks. a quake like the one that hit alaska brings to mind our own vulnerability right here in the bay area. we all know the need for earthquake resistant buildings. kpix5's melissa caen on the technology used at the new sutter hospital here in san francisco. >> reporter: we know here in san francisco we have think about earthquakes from time to time and here we actually may have the most seismically safe tall building in north america, this new sutter facility. it has inside of it 119 walls specially designed to slow down shaking in case of an earthquake. we got a look inside. >> it's amazing. i mean it's amazing that we have the first of its kind in north america in the u.s. in california. >> reporter: japan has used them for 20 years, but these
are the first earthquake walls in north america. sutter hospital's dean fryer says the alaska earthquake is a reminder of why we need safe places. >> that after a major seismic event this building will remain standing, remain operational and we will be able to serve the needs of the communities. >> reporter: so what is this miraculous new wall? jay love is the senior engineer overseeing the project. he says you start with a steel box with a plate in the middle that can move from side to side. >> they filled it from the bottom, however, with a material, something like chewing gum. >> reporter: when the ceiling and floor start going different directions, the plate in the middle floating in gum starts slogging back and forth taking in the energy and slowing everything down. >> it allows the movement to go back and forth, but it absorbs energy while it's happening. >> reporter: so the movement is happening, but it's just not as severe. >> it's not as severe. >> reporter: these walls are
placed throughout the hospital. 119 in total. love says they are tested to withstand a 9.0 earthquake. that's similar to the one san francisco got hit with in 1906. >> we designed based on that earthquake. >> reporter: now the benefits aren't just in safety. dean fryer tells us it reduces the reliance on large steel beams and girders as well. they saved about 25% in their steel costs in this facility, although he is quick to add safety was their no. 1 priority and the money savings was a happy side effect. live in san francisco, melissa caen, kpix5. >> thank you. we'll have continuing coverage of the alaska earthquake in a few minutes and updates throughout the night on www.kpix.com. up next a search tonight for a stolen dog. >> the caught on camera video of the suspect police are using to help find the french bulldog. >> plus a dramatic takedown in the north bay, a suspect tries to outrun police, the wild

theft is captured on video. >> kpix5's don ford on why the french bulldog's owners worry her life may be in danger. >> reporter: this normally peaceful yard here in santa rosa was a scene of a bold and brazen kidnapping of a beloved family pet and it was all caught on video. >> that's the second guy. the guy we're looking for is this guy right here. >> reporter: the thief leans over the fence in the darkness and 2-year-old lucy is stolen. >> this is my first dog, yeah. i love her to death and i've never loved a dog or animal like this until i got her and she's not a dog to me. she's a family member. >> reporter: lucy is a 20- pound french bulldog, friendly, enjoys people, likes to lounge near the fireplace and seems to tolerate party hats, too. this is her special spot. >> this is lucy's bed, yup. this is where she likes to hang out. >> reporter: here's the video
again. it's hard to identify the suspect. the camera is in ir or infrared mode at night, but here you can see the suspect open the front gate and tempt lucy to come out. she doesn't. moments later he alleges over to pick her up not knowing that lucy has serious health issues. >> what could seem to be just a normal doggy issue of her having some bowel issues or vomiting is actually an indication that her live is spiking and in danger of really kind of being a problem for her. >> reporter: bobby and angela say if lucy doesn't receive her medicine on a regular basis, it could be fatal. flyers are being passed out, but alerts about lucy has social media on fire. so much traffic that facebook has temporarily blocked bobby from posting on his page. >> there's nothing more important to us than getting her back. >> reporter: the reward is $5,000, no questions asked. in santa rosa, don ford, kpix5. a wild morning in vallejo with police running after a suspect on a school playground,
it started when a woman was robbed at knifepoint in front of a pizza hut. police had him surrendered at vallejo charter school. then he ran again trailed by a k-9 and team of officers. they eventually took him down, but the man still did not give himself up. officers delivered several blows to the suspect before he was subdued. all this played out just as classes were about to start and there were kids watching the entire sequence. >> he ran over here and started going on top of the roof. >> they did great. they called us within seconds. as soon as i heard from someone here a few seconds later the phone rang from the school district. >> just a block away there was another incident at a different restaurant. police say a man walked in and robbed two women at gunpoint on. an off-duty b.a.r.t. police officer just happened to be there. he wrestled the suspect to the floor and held him until vallejo police showed up. chopper 5 was over the aftermath of a two-alarm fire in san jose this afternoon. you see part of the roof collapsed at the building on
perrymont avenue. it holds an arts and crafts store called wood collection. nobody was hurt. the fire is under investigation. we just finished a couple rounds of rain, brian, and you say more is on the way. >> not as bad as earlier this week, but there's more and there's more after that. it will start after midnight tonight, but first we'll take you to the pac-12 championship at levi's stadium where washington and utah are deadlocked at 0-0. vern glenn will have more on that. highs today looking toward levi stadium, oakland hit 63, all in the low 60s today. hi-def doppler shows what's on the way. that weak cold front is now moving over cape mendocino. it doesn't have as much moisture as what we've seen, but it's packing a powerful little punch. so when it moves through, you will hear it tonight. rain on the roof as the loving
spoonful once sang, weaker lows dropping into the bay area and as that low comes in, we'll see a return to rain early saturday. by midnight in the north bay, sunrise, central bay scattered showers during the afternoon. sunday looks cool and dry. noon saturday in berkeley looks like things will begin to clear out, but there could be a shower or two, 121st big game at noon berkeley, 56 degrees. i would bring an umbrella, mid- 50s tomorrow. so this cold front comes down. that's why they call it a cold front. temperatures will come down a little bit. rain will come down a little bit, 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch. in the extended forecast we'll be looking for rain, begins at midnight tonight, north bay, central bay at sunrise and then we'll look for scattered showers for the bay area through the afternoon and then things will begin to clear out. sunday will live up to its name, but then more rain comes in tuesday and wednesday on from this upper level devil, this closed low off central
california. we'll see how much rain we get from that and another system comes in a week from today. so stay tuned. there's more coming. >> thanks, brian. coming up in our next half hour more quake coverage from anchorage. >> including the newsroom that took a direct hit, their lights and camera left in ruins. >> sports on a friday and i can't wait to bring it today, breaking news when a star nfl running back who was supposed to play at the raiders this weekend, you are not going to want to miss this. oh!

hour for the league and chiefs running back kareem hunt, disturbing video surfacing of hunt shoving and kicking a woman at a cleveland hotel from back in february. tmz acquired the video. hunt was not arrested. charges were not filed and moments ago as i'm walking up here, the chiefs released him from the team. now kansas city are playing at the raiders on sunday. on a lighter note, it's a reunion of sorts between jon gruden, raiders head coach, and kansas city head coach andy reid. the two were both on the packers staff in the 1990s and as young coaches gruden and reid would compete against each other to see which one could get a play they designed actually used in a game. >> one day we played chicago. i got three plays in and two of them -- one of them scored a touchdown. on the plane on the way home i got the game ball. i walked back to andy reid. i said game ball. all you got was a 6-yard gain against seattle. we used to compete like that a lot, good friend, great coach.
>> raiders are two touchdown underdogs, pivot to the 49ers, 10 to 11 point underdogs at seattle. on the list of who is not playing this week includes receivers pierre garcon and marquis goodwin. 9ers empire may want to look away at this one. this is the famous tipped interception from the nfc championship game in seattle in 2014, the tip by richard sherman, the pick by malcolm smith, now both with the 49ers, so is defensive coordinator robert sala who was also on the seahawks staff in 2014 and he's got vivid memory of that. >> when it happened and he caught it, i blacked out for a little bit. i think coach quinn punched me in the face by accident, so there's a lot of things going on in the booth. that was a pretty cool moment. sorry, 9er fans. we were just talking about
it. noon tomorrow in berkeley it's stanford and cal, the big game. cardinal will try to beat the bears for the ninth straight year. last season the cardinal edged the bears 17-14 by holding the ball for the final 7 1/2 minutes of the game, a drive that still bothers cal corner back cameron bynum. >> reporter: is that one of the losses when you look back, it kind of stings the most? >> yeah. i had so many family coming to that game and telling everybody we're going to win and we came up short. that's a bigger chip on the shoulder now. >> reporter: family coming up this week? >> yes, ma'am. >> reporter: are you telling them all you're going to win? >> yeah. we're confident. >> a noon kickoff. that ball belongs to tiger woods. he was in trouble at the hero world challenged, ruled he hit the ball twice on this shot. then the officials reneged, took a 6 on the hole. he shot a 3-under 69 and trails the leaders by eight shots. i'm coming back, allen, and
you know what's happening. it is story time coming up. >> friday. >> this time i got a basketball academy that they do more than refine gifted players with terrific handles. you won't believe it. >> is there vern involvement? >> no. i do not touch the rock in this story. >> that's a shame. >> but a lot of players do. >> all right, uncle vern. we'll be there, thanks. coming up in our next half hour much more coverage on the huge quake in alaska. >> including the more than 100 schools now cancelling classes after the shaking sent terrified students diving for cover. >> plus it's one of the leading quake research centers in the state, what experts at cal tech and southern california say about the violent shaking. >> also ahead president trump holding high stakes meetings with world leaders at the g-20 summit in argentina, the deal he signed off on earlier today.

>> that timer on the screen, realtime for you. the shaking at the courtroom in anchorage lasted more than 30 seconds, people scrambling for cover as the shaking rattles the walls. they're diving under desks. panels fall out of the roof. you can see the desks going back and forth. there were other chaotic moments for those on the road. take a look. the scene from wasilla just north of anchorage, a car got trapped in a crumbled section of that road after the quake split right through the pavement. other highways were forced to shut down. >> our ken bastida joins us now with a closer look at the aftermath this evening, ken? >> i don't know about you guys, but i look at this stuff and i think wow, san francisco, the bay area and you can imagine chaos filling the city as this quake struck early this morning. so far there are no reported injuries. that's almost a miracle in itself, but our sister station in the area shows us it was a close call.
>> water pipes broke. so everything soaked in here. >> the cbs affiliate in anchorage was both reporting the story and experiencing it. >> it was like thunder. it was heavy. it was just heavy sounds. so the second that started going and that violent shaking just dropped down and tucked away right here. >> the station was left in shambles after the 7 magnitude quake rumbled through southern alaska. a giant crack split this roadway. >> holy smoke. >> and emergency crews spread out looking for damage. anchorage officials say transportation is disrupted, but overall the city was ready. >> the fact we went through something this significant with this minimal amount of damage says that we're a very well prepared community. >> alaska senator lisa murkowski is already looking toward the recovery. >> the size and extent of what we're seeing right now is something that will require
resources from outside. >> more than 100 schools canceled classes after the quake sent terrified students diving for cover. products crashed from store shelves and streets were littered with glass. attorneys jumped under their desks at the anchorage courthouse as pictures swung wildly on the walls. aftershocks were felt immediately following the quake including one registering 5.7 in magnitude. >> people in anchorage should expect to be feeling aftershocks most of today and potentially from a lot longer time. people should be expecting that there will be some level of earthquakes for potentially a few years. >> i'm still shaking. i'm still -- you can probably hear it in my voice. i'm just scared it's going toha absolutely terrifying. >> look at our future? you never know. anchorage has been hit hard before. it was the site of the
strongest recorded quake in u.s. left, a magnitude 9.2 rattling the city in 1964. about 130 people were killed in that earthquake. >> rattling a lot of nerves tonight, i'm sure. usgs offices in california pouring over their findings from today's earthquake. they say the epicenter was within the pacific plate directly underneath anchorage. reporter randy page shows us what researchers at cal tech in pasadena are discovering. >> reporter: we've come to cal tech here in pasadena, one of the epicenters for earthquake research, for the answer to a simple question. what can we learn about the earthquake in alaska to help survive the next big one in california? these images from anchorage do not come as a surprise to those who study earthquakes and for people who lived through the 1994 north ridge earthquake, they hit close to home. >> it's precisely what we saw
in north ridge. >> reporter: seismologist lucy jones says today's alaska quake was stronger than north ridge but originated deeper in the earth, so for people on the surface the two earthquakes felt about the same and had the same predictable results. >> fires getting set off, basically everything thrown off of any shelf that's available, good buildings built to code doing fine, old buildings being damaged. that's all -- it's what we see every time. >> reporter: and like the north ridge earthquake when it comes to knowing what to do the second the ground begins to move, some people got it right and others got it wrong. >> your instincts makes you want to get outside, but running puts you at danger. running through things that are thrown off of shelves, look at how much stuff's on the ground. if you're running through that, it's going to be hitting you as you try to run. running during a strong shaking, you fall, sprain your ankles, break your legs. we've had people die from trying to run in earthquakes and seeing all these people do drop, comp, hold on is really
encouraging. >> reporter: why is this so important? because the choice you make in the first few seconds of the next big quake could be one of the most important decisions you ever make and while science can tell us what is likely to happen, it can't tell us where and when. four words that are so important to remember, drop, cover, and hold on. in pasadena, randy page, kpix5. the president trump was meeting -- kpix5. president trump was meting with world leaders today at the g-20 summit in argentina. he signed a new trade agreement this morning with canada and mexico, a deal mr. trump and his team have pushed for. he said it will boost the economies of all three north american countries. >> this is an agreement that first and foremost benefits working people, something of great importance to all three of us here today. su replace na not go into effect unless congress gives its approval which is far from assured.
tomorrow mr. trump meets with china's president in a bid to ease trade tensions between the two nations. up next as many as 500 million hotel guests may have had their personal information compromised in one of the largest data breaches to date. >> microsoft just became the most valuable publicly traded company in the world. >> prepare to get wet in the bay area heading into midnight tonight and tomorrow and it won't be over yet. there's more rain coming midweek. we'll have all the details and we'll even have some music as we look at the golden gate bridge. managing my type 2 diabetes wasn't my top priority. until i held her. i found my tresiba® reason.
now i'm doing more to lower my a1c. once daily tresiba® controls blood sugar for 24 hours for powerful a1c reduction. tresiba® is a long-acting insulin used to control high blood sugar in adults with diabetes. don't use tresiba® to treat diabetic ketoacidosis, during episodes of low blood sugar, or if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. don't share needles or insulin pens. don't reuse needles. the most common side effect is low blood sugar, which may cause dizziness, sweating, confusion, and headache. check your blood sugar. low blood sugar can be serious and may be life-threatening. injection site reactions may occur. tell your prescriber about all medicines you take and all your medical conditions. taking tzds with insulins like tresiba® may cause serious side effects like heart failure. your insulin dose shouldn't be changed without asking your prescriber. get medical help right away if you have trouble breathing, fast heartbeat, extreme drowsiness, swelling of your face, tongue or throat, dizziness or confusion. i found my tresiba® reason. find yours. ask your diabetes care specialist about tresiba®.
today microsoft held the top spot as the market closed. for the year microsoft shares are up nearly 30%. they are calling it the biggest data breach ever. a half a billion guests of marriott hotel properties may have had their personal information stolen dating back to 2014. hackers may have gained access to passport numbers, phone numbers and credit card information. >> this is a really big deal because this went on for years. >> i'm worried about my information out there in the hands of somebody that's going to do wrong by it. >> no marriott branded hotels were affected. however, starwood properties acquired by marriott in 2016 were hit. they include sheraton, westin, element, a loft, w hotels, s regis, four points, meridian and the luxury collection along with starwood branded time share properties. all this comes as marriott continues to deal with an
ongoing labor strike in san francisco. they've been loudly picketing outside the marriott marquee since early october. some 2,500 workers are demanding higher wages in a region they say forces them to work multiple jobs to make ends meet. marriott will begin sending e- mails to those affected. the nation's first biometric airport terminal launches tomorrow in atlanta. delta passengers will only need to show their face to check in for flights and get through security. although it is fast, privacy concerns remain an issue. >> it's a massive threat and i don't say that lightly. what the program is doing is making it commonplace to use your face as a digital id. >> next delta is rolling out the new system in detroit. the airline says it does not save pictures and customs holds the photos of u.s. citizens for about 12 hours before they're deleted. up next a checkup from butte county where flash floods from the last storm forced camp

in butte county tonight some people are actually returning to their flooded homes after being evacuated a second time this month. >> yesterday's flash floods made a mess on the outskirts of chico in the camp fire burn zone. take a look. clean-up crews have been busy mopping up, ripping off tiles, making repairs to cabinets and the family who lives here says that this month has been a nightmare. >> you're driving home from work and thinking to yourself that's twice we've been mandatory evacuated in the last month. >> three weeks. 21 days apart, thursdays. november is almost over. >> the repairs don't end inside the home. the homeowner made of his fence water to flow instead of flood. meantime suchper 5 caught s pounding the coast at half moon
bay. high surf advisory has been in effect for much of the week across bay area beaches for good reason. from surf to the snow it's opening day at sierra tahoe and you couldn't have picked a better one. kpix5's emily turner said the storm stopped just in time. >> reporter: there have been three storms that moved through the sierra this week and another is set to move through tonight. that's nothing but good news today for sierra tahoe's opening day. in fact, they say this is the best one in recent memory with 47 inches season total at the summit. it's friday, opening day and a great ski day which is why for this man it's also a sick day and why we're protecting his identity by shooting him in silhouette. >> i didn't tell my boss that i was taking the day off. i just kind of played hooky and took off. so yeah, you can't go to work on a day like today, right? >> reporter: which is why plenty of people poured into the resort to enjoy it saying it looks more like midseason than the start to one. in the last 24 hours sierra-at-
tahoe got more than 10 inches of snow. the accumulation this early in the season bodes well for the rest of it the resort says. >> the snow came in that started the season pretty heavy. once that heavier wet snow freezes it creates an incredible base that's really solid. so any snow that falls on top of that is just fluffy light on top of a really good base that should last for a long time. >> reporter: not only is all this snow this early in the season great for skiing, but it also sets the base for an excellent snowpack which anybody in california can tell you is essential to our water resources. it will be measured for the first time the beginning of january just down the road from here. at sierra-at-tahoe, emily turner, kpix5. >> looking pretty nice in the sierra, brian, and looking pretty nice outside now as well. >> you ski, don't you? >> kind of. i try. >> for me there's something about a sport that has an ambulance at the bottom of the
hill. >> they come get you, though. >> do they? that's a nice service they offer. mostly starry skies in the sierra tonight and here in the bay area, but that will change because we've got another -- actually it's not that weak. it's weak relative to the storms we've had lately. 50s right now and we've got partly cloudy to clearly skies. it will be a starry, starry night to quote don mcclain and then the clouds and the plot thickens. it's already moving in over shasta siskiyou and winter storm warnings are hoisted again in the sierra as this works its way south. it will be a fast mover. the faster it moves, the less rain we will get. it would not be a surprise if we have saw a thunder bumper or two tonight. it is weaker compared to the other systems lately. it's also moving fairly quickly. as it's moving through, it
could rain but good and at least we won't have to deal with the commute. by midnight it's draped over far sonoma county. as the night goes on, it comes into the central bay area right around sunrise. what happens after sunrise? we get scattered showers after 6 a.m. so it looks like this in the futurecast. we won't be completely out of it until later tomorrow afternoon. then we go to a northwesterly flow. that's a drier direction. we scour it out. sunday looks good, but first we'll have these showers to contend with tonight. in terms of amounts up by ukiah 0.6-inch, but in the central bay area higher elevations 1/2 inch, lower elevations 0.5-inch to a 1/4 to 1/2 inch. more clouds tonight, north bay, rain up there earliest, wet saturday in the morning, clear in the afternoon. sunday will be a sunny day. winter storm warnings if you're headed to the hills, playing
jacob marley, carry chains, 1 to 2 feet of snow. overnight lows tonight chilly but colder saturday night. saturday day tomorrow the numbers will mostlying in the mid- to upper 50s baywide, 56 at mountain view and santa clara 58, 58 for san jose. east bay will get some rain around sunrise, then showery activity and then clearing off by the time we head toward evening. in the north bay get hit first with the rain in the overnight hours and as we get up to lake county it's going to be cold tomorrow, 49 degrees at lakeport and 49 degrees at clearlake. in the extended forecast we'll go with unsettled weather all week long really. we'll get a break from time to time, but early tomorrow morning we get rain, scattered showers tomorrow -- sorry, i've been hit with the plague, which everybody has got. that's why paul is not here -- we've got sunshine coming in sunday, monday partly cloudy skies, tuesday and wednesday more rain coming in. it's not done yet. thursday northwesterly flow, partly cloudy skies, friday another system, looks like it's
coming in on again, off again rain and you know what? that's winter in the bay area, nothing unusual about that. we'll take it. >> hot tea, brian. >> i'm doing it. coming up it is story time. this is not your average basketball academy. >> oh, no. vern glenn brings us a program run by a visionary coach who wants to take these kids much, much further than above the rim. >> coming up on nightbeat at 10:00 she lived in the u.s. more than two decades illegally before being deported last year. tonight she's finally coming home. meet the nurse who against all odds won the lottery and will return to the u.s. we'll have details for you tonight on nightbeat. come join us at 10:00 over on our sister station, kbcw 44 cable 12. this little home of mine,

booker t. washington center in san francisco. these kids, elementary to high school, are sharpening their basketball skills. they are training under the watchful eye of jerome gumms, founder of empower me academy and before you think this is some garden variety basketball factory -- >> when they leave, they feel like they're better prepared not just for basketball, but for life. i mean life is the ultimate game. we all have to play it. >> gumms didn't read this game out of a book. he was a star division 1 player for the usm dons in 2005. he had strong support growing up in the virgin islands and mentors as coaches along the way. he wants to do the same here. five years ago he started empower me. just being a gifted player is no guarantee to a spot in the program. >> it's about accepting everyone, but not anyone and what i mean by that is when we lop good basketball
player, that person has high integrity and they feel being a superstar off the court is as important as on the court. >> are we working hard? let's do it again. ready. go! >> emily jones, a standout player at st. ignatius, has been with the program all five years. >> my mental toughness, way better than when i was in 5th grade, 6th grade, 7th grade, just keeps getting better. my physical fitness, way better. >> we just happened to let the camera roll here without making a single edit. look at how well they shoot! move over, steph curry. >> we might not develop the next steph curry, but we feel if we could develop the next steph curry and then he becomes the next barack obama, we think that's a win/win situation for us. >> empower academy, they just don't bring in and just spit out gifted players. it's so much more empowering.
