got here. look at dramatic video we captured: the roof of the c.v.s. came crashing down after 2:00 this morning and immediately triggered store, fire, and burglar alarms. the preliminary stage of the fire district inspection suggests that continued rainfall causes standing water and pooling. a look may have rotted an end of a beach holding the roof and that combined with the weight and size of the ventlation same became too much and, bam, everything crashed. i specific to the manager on the scene. my phone rang and i called my store manager and said there was a possible roof collapse. we came out here to check it out the hole is big enough to drive a car through. the fire chief says they will
keep the store closed if safety reason until the building inspectors can dress the damage and look. more rain is coming down i have found new information on those who have medical needs, they can get their prescription at santa cruz or other locations to pick up the medication. we have been hearing calls like this all morning. we are about to move around now to follow some of the fire department and see what they are dealing with out here. i will be back if about 30 minutes to tell you what we have found. >> we can hear sirens in the background. >> the storm is dumping a huge amount of rain in san francisco withstanding water, deeper a few hours earlier. high drifts and cars were nearly
submerged and water is causing commuter problems, as well. >> check out street in san francisco. several cars were stuck because of rising water. no one was hurt. you can see the cars were partly submerged. one was almost completely submerged. >> the rain is affecting public transit we are talking muni, that sent out this tweet saying van ness is closed because of flooding. take surface transportation. van ness conducts sunset and castro to downtown. no doubt this be a problem for commuters. >> people in north bay saw lightning. we did on the way do work, as well. our crew shot this video before 11 o'clock with lightning on top of the wet weather that pounded the north bay all day.
right now from the roof on our kgo camera looking at the embarcadero. it is wet. and the bay. the rain continues to fall. i found a lot of bonding on the embarcadero with many intersections flooded out because the water you splash can blind the driver next to you. >> as you can see things are backing up and leyla gulen is following this and will tell us what is going on there and elsewhere. there are a lot of accidents. >> more on the weather impact, a multimillion dollar erosion project to protect hopes is on hold. there is worry of mudslides after the king fire blackened thousands of acres a few months ago. crews want to drop rice straw to the worst burned areas to rocket the remaining soil but the heavy
rain is keeping that from happening and contractors do not expect to resume work for a few months. the wet weather is not limited to northern california. winter weather is reaching southern california, as well, and triggered this rock slide in santa barbara. the public works crews responded yesterday to clean up the mess. drivers slowed but lanes on the road were passable. and this is one of many problems facing people in southern california this morning. here is that report. >> a tree cubs -- crushes a the sound of the falling tree is unforgettable. >> i thought it was thunder. i looked outside the window and it was a big tree on the street. >> was it terrifying? >> terrifying. very scary. >> several trees hit in the car through southern california. mud blow is a concern in one
area with debris from the spring fire of 2013 coming into the retirement community causing evacuation. after dark the debris stops flowing. the back yesterday of this home is covered in mud. you can see the water left behind. the sandbags worked and the house itself is not damaged. >> i am totally pleased with the help that we got from the city and the sheriff and the fire department. they were just wonderful. >> residents are everjoyed to come home and the mandatory evacuations are over. >> it is hard to describe. it feels great. >> a nine mile stretch is closed after mudslides on the highway the it is fought clear when the road will re-open. >> downpours caused streets to everflow with several feet of water in some places making driving difficult. >> i enjoy it as much as i can walking but when i am driving,
it is not so great. >> most celebrate the rare storm in the middle of california's historic drought. >> this has been dry and we need the rain. we need the rain but the problem, it is coming down too quickly. all at once. >> the ground is saturated and it is running off rather than soaking in so that is cause the urban flooding. that means highways, secrets, parking lots they all became lakes and rivers. i saw a car on the bay bridge hit something and the water flew everywhere and immediately i let off the gas and hit it but not like they did. they turned sideways. the richmond san rafael bridge from rip monday to san quentin moderate to half rain with a cell off the coast in ten minutes.
and it will head up to novato and san rafael and in the less developed areas of eastern condition con and am -- alameda county you can see stronger rains. redwood city in 20 minutes will have the rain. and you can see the moisture coming up from the south and because of that we are going to have heavy showers. that is why we see this. this is 29th if san francisco, you can see the ponding. urban flooding. hud and -- mud and rock you can see the winds picking up this morning. from now through noon, we will have our best chance for losing power. hopefully you have good working windshield wipers, with the tread on the tires is good because it will be a slippery
ride. we have had so many reports up to 70 incidents right now. mostly having accidents and stalls. there is flooding cross the bay area freeways. in san jose at 280 northbound side away from highway 17 is loading up. the drainage is in check. same here at 101. this is the drive in the southbound direction. up to 880, looking good. san jose airport, moving along without problems. we have significant flooding near the racetrack northbound and southbound highway 121, 20' across from east to west is where we have flooding. to the south a serious accident southbound 101 lying to leave san francisco we have a crash involving a car on its side so be careful. northbound traffic we had early flooding at mission at the extension. it is underwater right now.
coming up, a diplomatic dispute involving the producer of a popular soap opera. is she qualified to be a united states ambassador? >> easing congestion on bart. a bold idea is under consideration by the transit board. the run of ebola. a patient is now under observation in the united states. >> we will have more weather and traffic all morning. we will keep these pictures up throughout the commercial break so you do not miss a thing.
covering santa clara, san francisco, east bay, and all the bay area, this is abc7 news. 6:18. we have video of flooding in marin city. unfortunately for a driver, his car engine died as he drove through the water. a tow truck was standing by and the marin county sheriff diverted drivers to avoid the flooded street. we want to see the weather where you live, send us your weather photo and video at firstname.lastname@example.org. you can post them on our
facebook page or share them with us at twitter@abc7newsbayarea. a patient is tested for ebola in boston and results should be available soon. the parent was admitted to massachusetts general hospital with ebola-like symptoms after traveling to an area where the virus is present. the patient is in stable condition and in good spirits but the hospital will not release other information. drama for president obama this morning after he picked a soap opera producer to represent the country at the embassy in hungary. critics are questioning his nomination of colleen bell for the ambassador for honoringary who is known for "bold and beautiful," and a major donor to the president's re-election campaign pulling in $2 million in campaign cash. >> she could not even name a
single interest of the united states with hungary. >> she is someone that has had her own distinguished private sector year. it is not just colleen bell. since being re-elected he has nominated big dollar donors as ambassadors to two dozen countries. on a day like this, this is an intriguing thought: bart is considering a second transbay tube. the transit agency is exploring the idea of a second tube connecting alameda to san francisco south of market and richmond districts. a second tunnel allows for 24 hour service but as of right new it is just a study. construction could be decades away. bart could be a good alternate because the roads are very slick. a lot of hydroplaneing. coming across the east to west
bridges we will find the winds so watch out for that much the only bridge that is safe from that is the golden gate bridge and the i woulds were gusting up to 30 miles per hour. you can see we have a healthy cell moving through the north bay but the coins are an issue so we will go to the graphic and i can show you the wind and across the street on the exploritorium or the unfurled plagues gusting 20 to 30 miles per hour and that is why over the next several hours until noon we have a good chance of power outages as the weakest trees from the drought will topple at 20 miles per hour wind in san jose and 22 at half moon bay and sustained winds are not gusts which could be higher. we have a lot of urban flooding and you can see the entire area until you get to the north bay at petaluma and napa south until
at least 7:00 and that could be extended because we still have a lot of showers showing up upstream which is in this case to the south and west coming across the monterey bay to the south bay and coming out over the ocean and headed marin. look at that, heavy rain north of muir beach headed to san rafael. you can see the intensity of the rain and the brake lights headed south. look at the slow down as the heavy rain is moving on. that is good to see southbound travelers are headed to the golden gate bridge which is going do see a let up. when you get through that area it will be slick. showers and thunder are heaviest today. we said wednesday would be the worse day. light showers tomorrow and friday. the weekend is trending dry with temperatures close to nowhere --
normal. >> we have the greatest instability hooking with the upper level energy and we have heaviest rain. when that passes, the low will spin and move north and it will throw weaker waves as us so in the afternoon our intensity in coverage will drop and you can watch the yellow move away with just a last light to dark green showers tapering overnight so fog and drizzle tomorrow morning and tomorrow afternoon waves of light showers and tomorrow night through friday morning more fog because of the showers lessening and friday evening, you need an umbrella because a last look of wet weather from up to 2-4" in the mountain. the seven-day forecast, when it is dry on saturday, temperatures, still, are low-to-mid 60. >> flooding and debris is shutting down highway 84 and
this is where we have significant debris turning traffic around eastbound and westbound highway 84 shut down right now at pleasanton and sunol. you cannot use the road because of the water and falling mud and rock. to the west c.h.p. has issued a high wind advisory for dumbarton bridge with slowing there off the bridge and up to the peninsula. we have a brand new crash eastbound highway 92 to the northbound 101 connection a car on its roof with possible injuries involved and traffic is loading up headed into foster city. a look at the golden gate bridge we are further to the north in sausalito at highway one and we have a sig-alert thrown lanes three lanes are blocked. try to drive in the center lanes. >> now police arrested a suspected drunk driver after he jammed his cash between two fences on the pedestrian walkway of the golden gate bridge.
>> here is a photo showing the plus mustang registered to 22-year-old daniel soto of san francisco. at 5 o'clock a.m. yesterday he sped from the parking lot near the marin headland to the west sidewalk, hit the gas and got the car wedged in. no one was hurt. >> crews had to shut down traffic in both directions and lift the mustang and put it on a tow truck. it took five hours to accomplish. he was taken to the hospital with minor injuries and police arrested the man on suspicion of drunk driving. weather could be a factor but the primary factor is intoxication. this is a perfect example of what can happen. we have seen wrong way drivers that have caused serious citizens and now someone is driving on a sidewalk. it is dangerous. how is this for a coincidence? last may, he posted this photo
on facebook saying not sure if this is the official way to get to the golden gate bridge. >> when soto jammed the car it must have been difficult to get out of the car. >> you would think. >> you would think. we continue at 6:30 with the done stories. we are on storm watch and lightning rattling san francisco and beyond with more of this video of bay area skies getting lit up. >> rain causes big problems in the north bay with traffic trouble forcing light night commuters to divert. san francisco muni station is closed because of flooding. we will have the details ahead. we are tracking moderate-to-heavy rain through the south bay. actually, all of us are getting it. it will taper. i will tell you when the sunshine comes back. in the traffic center, i am

have felt comfortable taking my cap off. this is the reason why we are talking about this much needed break. this is video from this only of the cool collapse at the c.v.s. in downtown came crashing down after 2:00 a.m. immediately it triggered store fire and burgla awards. it could have been the water weight combined with the ventilation system that placed too much pressure on the roof. >> not surprised. >> not surprised. it is an old roof. >> look at the roof, you can see the hole is absolutely huge. the fire department says they will have to keep the store closed for safety reasons until building inspectors can assess
the damage. a look at more rain coming down just heavy with the downpours that only now have recently taken a break. i can tell you it looks like the sky is still included over for whatever reason the rain has stopped but this is what they will need when they go inside to try and figure out what they can do. we do know today the store will remain closed and scots creek location is open as is the santa cruz location so anyone who may have had immediate needs with medication can go to one of the neighboring stores. they will be accommodated. i spoke with the manager about that. in santa cruz for abc7 news. we have an update that leyla gulen is working on, on the van ness re-opening. but right new we have a lot of flooding. >> especially in san francisco where we see most of it. there are builts that are seeing some of the wet weather, too, as

the way to the north bay from petaluma and south is where we will have the best chance of flooding. the storm pulls away from novato moving across lakeville highway and this is a heavy bit of rain that will hit sonoma in less than 14 minutes. we do have light-to-moderate showers across the rest of bay and heavy rain pulling out of, say, cupertino, headed to sunnyvale and mountain view across 237 and at 101 if you are familiar with twin creeks the softball and baseball complex is where it is raining heaviest. this is how it looks at 280 and 17 and slow, the rain is falling in a good clip. showers are heaviest today and waves of light showers. now a look at the cold front coming through and we will have the heaviest rain with weaker america and we will have
