let's take a look at what is going on as far as the rainfall amounts we have seen thus far. three and four inches seen across portions of the north bay. areas over lexington hills more than three inches. san francisco, almost it looks like an inch and 7/10. more on the way. the center of the storm is still over areas of the pacific northwest. it will be here for most of the day. it will continue to bring us rounds and rounds, not only for today but perhaps into your saturday. as we get into the bay area a little closer here, you can see the rain moving on shore. if i sweep in even closer, we will look at what is going on. we have rain and snow mix right over the santa cruz mountains. areas over mount hamilton continue to see it as well. let's take a look at what is going on there from the lake observatory. we had snow earlier in the week. seeing it once again this week.

well, as steve mentioned, there are a few scattered showers in the bay area today. rosemary talking about it as well. thursday's storm, yesterday, not as big as many had hoped. any helps since we have been talking about drought conditions. some of the biggest rainfalls in sonoma and marin county. kent field got four inches of rain. steve was talking about snow this morning on mount tam and a lot of low elevations. that is good news for our water supply. water districts monitoring the lakes up in the marin watershed. this is a look at phoenix watershed. a place that people like to enjoy. >> down in southern california there is concern that the storms could cause problems in santa barbara county. a mandatory vacation order in in effect for 30,000 people. one trouble spot ismont city
that -- is montecito which was hit hard by the thomas fire. interstate 80 is open again after being closed because of dangerous conditions. caltrans opened the highway around 7:00 this morning. it was closed westbound between the nevada state line and colfax. we just checked and chains are still required on all vehicles, even 4-wheel-drive vehicles unless you have snow tires. brian hickey is in colfax where there are a lot of people who are happy to see interstate 80 open again. >> reporter: it was just after 7:00 this morning when they released traffic here. drivers are making their way up the mountain this morning. the sun is now out here in colfax. great news for drivers trying to get up to the powder.
colfax was a camp ground last night. this is what it looked like as the interstate shut down because of blizzard conditions, traction problems for big rigs and crashes. the chp shut it down and then they got it cleared and reopened this morning. it was 5:08 to be exact when they lifted the closure at colfax. a lot of people were excited to get up there. one volleyball family too. >> most of our team is up there. the show must go on. the tournament is still on. so i had a workday yesterday so i couldn't get on the road until this morning. i thought i was going to beat the closure but i didn't. >> i think we would have made it up easier. >> reporter: now the concern is getting home. make sure that you have a plan. brian hickey, ktvu fox 2 news. >> i looked up on caltrans
website and they say snow rated tires. if it has an m or s or an m/s, those are snow rated tires. >> i have to check. i thought i would be fine. >> watching that video, i saw suvs in that video with chains on their wheels anyways. i'm not sure if the guy checking has actually read the vehicle code. >> honestly i have driven up one time with 4-wheel-drive when they insisted chains. that's not the kind of road that you want to drive on. that is good information though. >> check your tires. >> let's talk about the immigration sweeps here. new details on the immigration operation in northern california that ended on wednesday. ice arrested it 32 people over four days. it also says 180 of them were either convicted criminals
issued a deportation order or returned to the united states illegally. of those 115 had felony convictions. the white house says the justice department is reviewing the actions of oakland mayor libby schaaf after she warned the public last weekend that raids were imminent. the acting director of ice claims authorities could have made 800 arrests if mayor schaaf had not issued the warning. >> i think it is outrageous that a mayor would circumvent federal authorities and certainly put them in danger by making a move such as that. and it is currently under review by the department of justice. >> mayor schaaf's office says it is unaware of a review. yesterday on the 4 on 2, the alameda county sheriff was critical of her actions. >> any time that you warn criminals ahead of time that law enforcement is going to be responding, you jeopardize those officer that's will be responding. i would recommend we don't suggest to criminals that law
enforcement is coming to look for you. >> now, many people in oakland say they support the mayor's actions. >> i support her. you know, in light of everything that is going on. it just went out as a heads-up to people. and she was very clear about that. she just wanted people to be prepared. >> in a statement -- >> ice actually blamed sanctuary city policies. the agency says ice has no choice but to continue to conduct at large arrests in local neighborhoods and at work sites which inevitably result in additional collateral arrests instead of focuses on jails and prisons where transfers are safer for ice and the community. we continue to follow a shooting at central michigan university. this is in mount pleasant. just about an hour north of lancing. according to michigan state police, two people were killed at a residents hall on campus.
police say the two killed are not students. and they also say they believe the shooting started from a domestic situation. students despite that still being advised to shelter in place. the city posted information about a gunman on facebook. they say they're looking for a 19-year-old man who they consider to be armed and dangerous. also happening right now, the funeral for the reverend billy graham is taking place in charlotte, north carolina. we want to take you there live this morning to some of the events taking place in honor of him. first lady melania trump joining more than 2,000 people for that invite-only ceremony. it is being held under a large tent which is a reminder how graham's ministry launched during a 1949 crusade in downtown los angeles. he died at his home in north carolina last week at the age of 99. president trump will meet with video game makers as an
effort to reduce gun violence. he will meet with members of the industry to discuss violence in the games and how it may play a role in school shootings. it says numerous scientific studies found no link between graphic media content and real- life violence. the group says games are played worldwide but other countries are not plagued with gun violence. former first lady laura bush has opened up an exhibit to show the impact that first ladies have had throughout the years. it features photos of the first ladies. she is proud of the achievements. her own mother-in-law barbara bush she says was an inspiration. she reflects on the september 11th attack, saying it changed
everything. it led to one of her most rewarding experiences, becoming a champion for making education available to girls and women in afghanistan. coming up on mornings on 2 the 9, a debate over people taking smoke breaks at work. up next, what some nonsmokers are asking for in return for not lighting up.
>> welcome back. checking in on stocks right now. another down day. it recovered about 100 points though from the opening. the dow was down 300 points. now down 209. the s&p 500 also down. but the nasdaq is posting a gain now. getting help from good earnings reports, including the gap reporting good numbers. >> investors are worried in regards to president trump's plan that he announced
yesterday to impose tariffs. >> very much so. >> on steel and aluminum. james mcbride with the mcbride group is joining us live on the phone. do you think the market is overreacting in regards to the announcement about the tariffs by the president or is this expected, james? >> well, it's expected in the sense that what the president has done is added massive uncertainty to the market. and investors don't know what he is thinking. is this a bargaining chip. is the guy serious. if you look at the reaction of the markets in the united states, europe and asia, they're all going down. >> if you think about t the announcement at first sight is, oh, we will keep jobs here and business here. but this is going to affect all of the care makers. it will affect boeing's stock.
>> james, we talked about this last time that you were on. inflation is what the market is afraid of. do you think that inflation is something that the market is concerned about? >> inflation is definitely something that the market is concerned about. and make no mistake about it. a tariff is a tax and taxes are
inflationary. when i was visiting with you a couple weeks ago, sal, we were looking how the market reacted to inflation fears. this just adds to the concerns. it is not the smartest way of doing things as far as the markets are concerned. >> what if other countries retall rate? what if they put tariffs on u.s. exports? >> mike, that is the $64 question. what you're talking about is a trade policy of an eye for an eye. >> right. >> and the result of that is pretty soon everybody will be blind. >> right. >> all right. we will leave it at that. thank you, james. have a great weekend. >> thank you, mike. >> thank you, james. moving to another topic that we've been talking about. >> yes. >> this is a good one. is it fair for smokers to be able to take several smoke breaks at work? a new survey says nonsmokers say fine but they want
something in return. 81% of smokers surveyed say they think smoke breaks are fair. 75% of nonsmokers disagree. also the survey estimated that the average smoker uses six days a year on work smoke breaks. the smokers who were surveyed said they would give up smoke breaks if they got an extra 11 days of vacation in return. but the nonsmokers say we're the ones that should get more vacation days. >> should nonsmokers get extra vacation days? 65% say yes. 35% say no. >> it is a big topic of conversation on facebook. frank mallicoat is at dell's cafe in castro valley talking about this idea. what do people think, frank? >> reporter: well, i'm a nonsmoker so you know what i think about that, where my opinion goes. we just left dell's cafe. we came out to talk to folks on the street in castro valley.
38million people smoke in the united states. the people here in castro valley are not on your team. we asked the question, should you get extra vacation time if you're a nonsmoker. the answer is, you better believe it. >> i think the smokers should be penalized. however they do it, they should do it. i'm a nonsmoker. all the way. >> do you think you should get an extra week of vacation as a nonsmoker. >> i'll take it. >> while they're taking their breaks, are you saying, geez, i'm in here working. >> absolutely. >> does that tick you off a little bit. >> a little bit. if they want to destroy their lungs go for it. >> reporter: apparently the smokers are saying, well, we will give up our smoke breaks if you give us 11 extra days off a year. >> get out of here. are you serious? >> i'm serious. >> that can't be true. no. no. it doesn't make sense at all. >> that's up to the company's discretion. and if they -- you know, to try
to squeak out a couple of time -- paid off time, that is not fair to anybody. >> yeah. >> reporter: that would be hard to keep track of, right? >> i think so. >> reporter: yeah. i think so too. how do you determine -- well, you were out there 15 minutes today and 15 minutes next week and add it all up. it is a bit of a mess. i had one friend chime in from back east and he said the nonsmokers are already getting a bonus. they will live longer and they will have more time to take vacation. there you go. that's the reaction down here at castro valley. >> frank, before we let you go. we know today is read across america. we understand that you're taking part in an event at a nearby elementary school in about 40 minutes or so. >> reporter: yeah. about 10:00, i will head up to the school right down the block here. we will read to some of the grade school kids in honor of dr. seuss who was born on this day in 1904.
he would be 114. >> what are you going to read. >> reporter: it started back in -- that's a good question. i don't know yet. i sent them an e-mail. i hope it is dr. seuss. are you my mother or go dog go. >> greens eggs and ham. >> reporter: there you go. >> they're going to hand you a book. >> reporter: i'm going to ad lib and let it rock. we will go over that over the weekend on mornings on 2 tomorrow. >> thank you, frank. coming up on mornings on 2 the 9, yesterday we were checking in with the a's vice president. we go back live to the stadium. mark ibanez is hanging out with your san francisco giants. we will hear from him coming up after the break.

we're going to check in with mark ibanez who is in scottsdale at giants camp. tough loss against the angels. it is like it is game 7 of the world series. >> reporter: there is no such thing as a tough loss in spring training. i'm talking to some of the most hardcore giants fans i know in sal and mike and everybody else right there with them. yesterday you were really struck by the stark difference between the a's camp and the giants camp. at the a's camp, youngsters begging to do interviews. they're happy for the publicity. here you have the veteran who's are not so anxious to get up and do an interview with us. we have shots of them doing their warm-ups here. these are the pitchers too egg to make this squad -- trying to make the squad. you're getting a look at left-
hander tony watson, one of the newcomers. and lots of new faces here. a lot of veteran presence over all in the roster. we got a talk to one of the guys that you will want to get acquainted with. we almost got hit by a ball. good thing we're off camera. steven duggar is potentially a center fielder. he is happy as a rookie outfielder to be part of what is the giants organization and the culture that they have here. >> if you follow baseball in general, you know, you're not ignoring world series championships in a short period of time. so being able to be drafted by these guys and this organization -- i've said it before. the culture that they have here, you know, just from talking to other guys, it's a real family culture. i mean, they really care about
you. you know, you as a player and a human here. it's -- it's been incredible, to be honest with you. the experience so far has been unbelievable. everybody is willing to help. we truly do dedicate ourselves to winning. >> reporter: that is steven duggar. real talented guy. i'll tell you what, one of the treacheries and one of the great things about being so close -- look at this. we can hear the guys talk and the sound of ball hitting leather. it is great. but while we were off camera, just missed getting clocked by a couple of feet. it is great being this close, but, you know, i've got -- i've got to keep my third eye going. >> heads up. >> exactly. >> reporter: what do you think? >> mark, i want to ask you
something real quick. last year, 98 losses. >> reporter: yeah. >> they did a lot. do you think that, you know, last year was kind of a fluke? do you think this year is going to fix it all somewhat do you think about 98 compared to what they will do this year. >> reporter: they help but get better. 98 losses was a disgrace. a lot of these guys feel that. there was remorse over what happened. i mean, obviously madison bumgarner, you know, falling off the dirt bike and one thing after another. buster got beamed on opening day. it was bad from the outset. they went out and got inch cup inson and longoria and tony watson to back up the bullpen. i would be stunned if they don't improve by 15, 20 wins this year. i think there is a determined attitude here in camp. the a's are young and
exuberant. these are veteran guys that take this seriously and are hardcore about it. it is a different vibe between camps. the a's are young and we will say a little less stage presence over there than over here with the giants. just going about their business in a real serious, hardcore way. >> thank you, mark. have a great morning out there in scottsdale. appreciate it. >> reporter: yeah. it is a little warmer today. i will be able to take off the coat. >> thanks for rubbing it in. coming up, preparing for the academy awards. how they will poke fun at last year's mishap. celebrating the history of the city. we get a look at the free exhibit this weekend. ♪ to hands below ♪ as thank you for
