8:33 am
about the storm that blew through caused a lot of damage in it's wake. here in lafayette you might be able to see one of the many crews that's out scowerring the bay area looking for spots that need work. this area here we are understanding that this crew is waiting on a crew to actually come in from the city of lafayette to clear the tree down there that brought down this line. until that tree is really moved there's not a lot of work that they can do until that tree actually gets removed so they are estimating it could be 6 or 7 at night before power is fully restored to this neighborhood. we have video that we shot overnight of what the scene looked like when that tree came down some time after midnight bringing those power lines down leaving a lot of people without power overnight, a lot of people came out to see what was going on. we talked with one woman this morning who says she's been without power for hours. >> the two vehicles you see there we can't get out.
8:34 am
we can pull them out but what good does that do us. unless they open up an emergency fire road down there, but it's blocked off. >> this is far from the only neighborhood effected. we have a live camera out in san ramon as well where another tree came down and blocked the area where officers escort prisoners in and out much the station and partially blocking some of the access to the patrol cars. no word of any damage at that point and no word on exactly when all of that clean up is going to be done today. it's not hard to find trees down. on my way into work this morning, as a matter of fact i found downed trees on 14th avenue in san francisco, shot some video of that. so clearly a lot of clean up still under way. back to our live shot here in lafayette you can see crews escorting people through this area. it is safe but these lines could be energized later on and
8:35 am
that would be a serious problem. the word from pge assume they are energized. they could be dangerous and deadly. the crews still working out here. we'll have updates throughout the morning on when power will be restored here. >> thank you very much. the storm is causing problems on the roads contributing to several crashes yesterday. >> and on the bay bridge drivers are warned to take it slow because of the high winds. this morning daniel hill joining us on the phone to talk about what drivers should watch out for for today and really for the next few days right daniel? >> that's correct. we have a brief today for us to recover, clean up the roads a little bit but yesterday was a pretty big day for us. we had a lot of roadways effected and it's going to hit us again as the rain comes back. >> i was just checking the
8:36 am
dispatch log the clean up continues. just in the last hour branches down on the roadways. report of erosion on a roadway and summit lake drive. what should drivers be looking out for when they are heading out there when not everything is quite cleaned up yet? >> we are asking people to take it slow out there. there are situations where you are going to be driving down the road and may not see until you get onto it a downed tree or other debris in the roadway. tread carefully. a lot of this rain is going to make it difficult for all of our trees to keep standing. the soil is going to get wet. some of the trees may come down unexpectedly so when it does turn to dark slow down and keep your eyes up to detect the hazards before you come up on them. >> talking about that we reported a story about a road block on a flooded road and the driver went around the road block. obviously people should not be
8:37 am
going where a road block is but just from advice from a driver and at night especially is there a way to see if there is a flooded roadway. is there a way people can know because sometimes it's hard to see if there's a big puddle of water out there without any lights. >> if you can't see it for sure like on the freeway you can see roadway flooding because the road looks different. a lot of people assume it's water on the roadway but you never know if that's standing water. the slower you go the more time your brain has to process what you are seeing. trust your instincts. if you see something that looks wrong it probably is going to be wrong. slow down. if you hit a patch of water and you hydro plane let off the gas, don't hit the brakes and adjust your driving accordingly. what too many people do is when they hydroplane they hit the
8:38 am
brakes and lost control because as soon as your wheels get traction again your car goes directly in the way it was supposed to go. that's the most cause of crashes out there during the rain time. >> officer daniel hill talking about the clean up under way and reminding drivers to take it safe out on the roadways. we still have more storms coming through and the debris is still on the roadway. >> thanks daniel appreciate it. >> uh huh. >> download the free ktvu weather app for the latest live radar and up to the minute forecast. search for it in the app store. bart service is back to normal after a man was found underneath the train. this happened yesterday morning at about 9:30. the man was rushed to the hospital but later died. the station was closed for two hours during the investigation. police say they do not think any foul play was involved. police are investigating a

8:41 am
and fourth he says you've got to be able to win and he has not been able to win and i think it's time he drops out. i would love to take on ted one on one. that would be so much fun. >> trump's two supersaturday victories brings his total to 12 states he's been able to win. bernie sanders is racking up states in the mid section. he's won the kansas presidential caucuses and nebraska democratic caucuses but former secretary of state hilary clinton won the democratic presidential primary in louisiana. it's her 11th state win in the 2016 presidential race expanding her commanding lead. next up the focus will be michigan. >> we've got work to do but not to make america great again. america never stopped being
8:42 am
great. we've got to make america whole. diversity is a strength not a weakness. instead of trying to divide america between us and them let's try to find a little more love and kindness in our hearts to respect one another, to support one another. >> well looming beyond this weekend's contests are the crucial march 15 primaries in ohio and florida which could make or break some of these campaigns. following breaking news this morning, the website tmz is reporting that former first lady nancy reagan has died at the age of 94. according to the website as well as daily news she had been in failing health in recent years. she and former president ronald reagan were married for more than 50 years. we are trying to get more information and will have an update as soon as we get more.

8:53 am
by 5:00 moving into the central bay. 6 or 7:00 very wide spread, heavy at times into the evening hours tapering off as we get into the second part of the evening by 10:00 or so but still scattered showers in the forecast for the entire evening. rainfall amounts a half inch to an inch expected. more for our hills but this is good news here as we roll you through. monday morning could have a few residual showers falling on the monday morning commute. here's a look at the numbers outside right now. low to mid 50s, a cool start out there. low 60s for the afternoon with mostly cloudy skies and rain increasing by the second part of your afternoon. the extended forecast showers remain in the forecast as we get back to work on monday and dry on tuesday and wednesday but increasing clouds ahead of the storm that will bring us more rain on thursday. so a little bit of a break and another round next weekend. they seem to be following these rain storms on the weekend. kind of a bummer. >> we are not complaining.

9:01 am
1999 and she was known for her just say no to drugs campaign. we are still getting information and will provide another update as soon as we get more information but turning now to our other top stories this morning. yeah the other top story we were talking about is the severe storms that hit the bay area last night. we are seeing the after effects of the latest el nino storm. we are looking live at a downed tree at the san ramon police department the cameraman zooming in there. you see the tree branch that fell there. just some of the damage we see across the bay area this morning. >> we can show you a look just before the toll plaza roads a little slick this morning but patchy clouds in the distance, blue skies and sunshine right now but that's going to change later on this evening around sun down when we get the next round of rain. >> no question about that. this is a live look from our
9:02 am
roof camera. the break in the clouds looking very nice on sunday morning. you see a little sun break but this is only the beginning and storms headed our way not just today but this week. good morning i'm brian flores. >> i'm allie rasmus. rosemary has been busy all morning tracking the storms coming through. >> yes great to see that rainfall yesterday. santa cruz picked up almost six inches of rain in 24 hours so that's pretty amazing. also amazing when little ones run to the window to watch it. that was pretty cool. we are going to have those advisories once again later today, flash flood as well as wind. more on those in just a moment. let's take a look at this view here. we have partly sunny skies, a few scattered showers out there for the first part of your day but for the most part in and out of the sun and the clouds. it's going to be an enjoyable
9:03 am
sunday. as we get into the evening hours or the second part of the afternoon the rain is going to come back in full force. santa rosa 55 degrees. oakland 58, livermore 55 and san jose 57 degrees. temperatures not too bad. cooler than most from where we started yesterday. emeryville where our viewer caught a rainbow this morning. she caught this outside. a very pretty start to the day. and many of us enjoying a pretty start to the day with a little bit of sunshine out there. radar very quiet at the moment. the next system is still off shore expected to roll in later today. so we are still on track for that possibility of two to four inches of rainfall by tomorrow morning. i've already seen one, two, three inches in some areas of the bay area. we'll have a look at those numbers in just a bit. focusing on storm number 2, flash flood watch, rapid rise in our creek and small streams possible. wind advisory gusts expected once again to 50 miles per hour. these are damaging winds that
9:04 am
topple trees, create power outages, send your out door furniture flying so that could be aware of as we get into the second part of your sunday. the down pours and strong winds have caused damage all around the bay area. power outages, flooding. we go to christian captain live on site. a downed tree and wires in lafayette. how is it looking out there? >> take a look from a different angle here you can see the top of that utility pole. this tree still down in the middle of the road. no word on exactly when this tree is going to be cleared but it has blocked access. we are at the intersection of quail ridge in lafayette. this road over here closed right now access limited by that downed tree. we have video we shot overnight of what the scene looked like out here. that tree came down after 7:00 last night--8:00 last night between 8 and 9 and brought down that utility pole with it
9:05 am
and one neighbor says things suddenly went very, very dark. no power overnight. he tells us he actually has his three kids at home and two of their cousins so five children in all in a house with no power, limited heat. he says fortunately they were able to eat last night but he says today is going to be a bit of a challenge and again he still is without power this morning. we also have a live camera one of our photographers there in san ramon this morning at the police station where another tree came down and blocked the area where officers escort prisoners in and out of the station and also blocked access to the patrol cars. no word of injury or severe damage but likely a lot of clean up and downed trees kind of the watch word this morning. pretty easy to find downed trees no matter where you go throughout the bay area. on my way in i shot video of a
9:06 am
downed tree on 14th avenue in san francisco. no real damage there. possibility of some cars possibility scratched when that tree dame down but one of the major problems of course is coming back to our live shot when that tree comes down if it pulls down utility lines that's when the very serious problems can happen. pge crews here on the scene right now working to restore power in this neighborhood. they are saying that could come this afternoon, evening at 6 or 7:00 tonight and again from pge a warning that if you do find downed power lines stay away from them, call the authorities right away. we have been checking periodically with pge since we are standing close to these lines. right before we went live i asked if the lines were still deenergized and they said yes. that's why we can stand so close but obviously treat any downed power lines as if they are hot, guys. >> always good advice
9:07 am
especially after a storm like we had last night and more on the way. something for people to keep in mind. thanks christian. >> the storm has left many people in the dark. this is a look at pge's power outage map. as of this morning still more than 4,000 customers are without power across the bay area. >> yesterday the storm knocked out power to 38,000 customers bay area wide and the majority were in the peninsula. pge crews are still working to restore service and joining us this morning is tamar and when we spoke with you about an hour ago last check there were 4,000 people this morning who still were without power. has the number changed at all? >> actually it has we are happy to report we are down to 29 customers in the bay area at this time and continuing to work to restore those customers. >> is there a part of the bay area that's been more effected than others? >> it looks like the north bay at this time has the highest
9:08 am
number, pray 900 customers- -approximately 900 customers in the north bay. >> and a lot of the power lines that are down came from trees. is that what you are seeing as well in terms of causes from the power outages last night and this morning? >> it can vary but primarily what we do see are those tree branches due to the wind into our lines but we do try and prevent that all year round with our vegetation management crews. they go around and check 134,000 miles of line in our service area and try and trim back any branches that look like they could make contact but when a tree comes down because the roots might be weak or what not that's a hard thing to prevent. >> and how many additional crews and resources have you brought in this weekend because of the storm? >> you know, we've had folks from all around coming out to the locations that are going- -that were going to be hit hardest. we have a meteorology team
9:09 am
that's constantly tracking the weather. they are also tracking where we can expect outages so that we can set-up those crews in the appropriate locations and bring folks from lesser hit areas. >> tamar do you have an estimate? 2900 customers with still without power but do you have an estimate when they can have it back on again? >> in a storm like this especially with another storm on it's heels it's difficult to say but we are out there in our blue trucks. you'll see us all around working safely and quickly as possible to restore our customers. >> all right thanks so much. and she mentioned crews will be hard at work right now and are going to be working again tonight with another round of storms on the way. thanks tamar. >> thank you. well the storm did cause headaches at the airport yesterday. the average delay for an arriving flight saturday evening was two and a half hours. 70 flights were canceled throughout the day.

lafayette. it came up from the roots, the whole tree down. pge crews on the scene here. if you take a look we can also see that a tree company just arrived out here starting to work. the first problem of course is clearing this tree from the road after that they can restore power and should be restored at 7 or 8 tonight to this neighborhood. >> reporting live, thank you. the storm has already been causing problems all over the roads. the slick conditions contributed to several crashes yesterday including one on interstate 80 in richmond. >> and on the bay bridge drivers were warned to take it slow because of high winds. daniel hill talked about what drivers should be on the look out for today and daniel i was just looking at the chp. a lot of the stuff coming in from the dispatch log. spin outs and trees and debris in the roadway. those are the things people should look out for.
9:37 am
>> absolutely. we are lucky to have a little bit of a rest to clear the roads of downed trees power lines and so forth but that time is going to run short as we get back into the storm. we are going to advise motorists to just take it slow. that's the best advice we can give you. the faster you drive in the rain the more likely you are to be involved in a collision. >> daniel i know we harp on this a lot telling motorists drivers if you will to just be careful out there but we have the break in the storms right now. what are we telling drivers right now? check the tires and wind shield wipers all that good stuff. >> those are the best things to do to make sure tires are inflated and wind shield wipers are in order. the vast majority of people maintain the cars and keep them in decent enough shape to drive. people failing to adjust the driving patterns. they drive the same speed they do when it's dry and don't increase following distance and over react when they hit
9:38 am
standing water. the message is to slow down the only thing you can do to make sure you do not crash in the rain. >> the last time we talked to you you had good advice on what drivers should do if they hit flooding on the roadway. >> keep your eyes up to see anything unusual. hydroplaning situations come from water standing on the road and those look like dark differences on the surface of the roadway. what we tell drivers to do is if you do experience hydroplaning release your foot off the accelerator. don't hit the brakes or put any steering movement into your car. let your car get the traction back and then adjust your driving patterns. the most common crash in the rain is azole o spin out where somebody loses control typically after hitting standing water because of trying to hit the brakes or turning the wheel and once you regain track it goes out of
