a suspected drunk driver is under arrest for this colli in storm clouds rolling in at pacifica pier. very wet as the rain has begun to fall. the crab boats just off the coastline there out there crabbing in the rain today. we have more rain as a series of storms is headed our way. details coming up. a suspected drunk driver is under arrest for this collision in southern california. he crashed into a liquor store in moreto valley. a 60-year-old man in the store was walking out right when it happened. and he was hit once and almost hit again when the driver tried to back out. the man was treated at the hospital and released. >> it's amazing more people aren't killed when that happens. a lot of time nobody is hurt and you're in a store and a car comes in. >> and you see by that video it happens so fast. >> yeah. hello? incredible. well a new app is helping women who are dealing with breast cancer. >> only on five, kiet do reports she started by telling her story. reporter: when barbara
5:11 am
wilcox was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier in year, she bared it all by posting the photos on social media. and in the process, learned that sharing is good medicine. >> but it worked out okay so i wanted to let other women know that it would be okay for them. >> reporter: now she will get that chance with a new app called her story. it's a collection of short audio clips, stories recorded by veteran patients like barbara. the writer and former newspaper reporter made this reporting back in may when chemo made her hair fall out. >> it came out in big clumps so i went to a woman and had my head shaved. [ laughter ] >> why are you laughing? >> because it's so -- it seems so far in the past but it was only a few months ago. >> my decision to get reconstruction was real easy. >> reporter: founder and ceo bob quinn says the content is screened to make sure it's medically accurate. quinn says videos are too distracting and text alone was
5:12 am
too boring. 44 second audio clips were just right. >> there's definitely a feeling when patients hear the spoken story, there's definitely an emotional connection that's really hard to achieve with text. >> reporter: the stories don't always have a happy ending. >> my friend peg was fighting her final fight with breast cancer. >> this was a downer i don't want to hear this. >> so that sad story is there if you want to hear it. >> exactly. >> reporter: and you don't want to hear it. >> not right now. >> reporter: her story is growing into a microcosm of life after cancer. hopefully there are more good days than bad and you get what you give. >> what i get back is a feeling of paying it forward and helping to create a community of survivors. >> reporter: her story is free and to encourage more contributors, for every recording they receive, they will make a $10 donation to breast cancer research. >> such a great idea and we all need support during tough times. so how does the app make money or does it? >> reporter: yes.
5:13 am
so how do they make money? well, her story is part of a larger family of apps that hospitals use to manage patient care, remind them to do things like not eat or do certain exercises before a surgery. hospitals pay for those apps and that allows her story to be provided free. we're live in san jose. kiet do, kpix 5. >> cool. >> i know, very good idea. 5:13 right now. let's get a check on the wet roads out there, elizabeth. >> okay. thanks. bay bridge it's really coming down now. windshield wipers are going and the westbound commute looks okay better than the eastbound commute so we can't say that very often. right now everything is clear into san francisco but there has been an accident on the lower deck eastbound 80 right before you reach treasure island. it was actually a taxicab that spun out, probably going too fast and hit the wall there. so again just some light delays right now. but we know at least one lane is blocked. so again it's a good reminder keep space between you and the car in front of you. give yourself some extra time
5:14 am
or better yet, right mass transit. so far everything is on time. our wettest commute is parts of the north bay where it's coming down across the golden gate bridge. you can see cars making some splashes now heading into san francisco. there should be four southbound lanes open now in the commute direction. they had the lanes change trucks passing through around 4:30. so everything is quiet now. kind of cleared out there while we were doing our traffic report. but everything is moving at the limit in both directions for the most part. in sausalito we had a shot northbound 101, southbound 101 at spencer. everything is a little wet but still looking good. and if you are heading across the richmond/san rafael bridge, obviously some rain falling on our camera lens as you approach the richmond/san rafael bridge toll plaza. no delays from marin county to richmond. westbound 580 overnight roadwork cleared in livermore. the only delays we are seeing are coming out of tracy. looks like to about north flynn and then everything clears out.
5:15 am
so drive time is great. 16 minutes between the altamont pass and 680. we have seen a few spinouts out the door. obviously that one near treasure island on the lower deck of the bay bridge. for the most part we're good but things could be tricky later on. bart might be a great idea. at last check 38 bart trains were all running problem-free. that's your latest "kcbs" drive to work. okay, lawrence has his hi-def doppler checking the storms. storm number one coming onshore now scattered showers around the bay area and that can be dangerous. it's dry where you're at and all of a sudden there's a downpour. that's what we are seeing right now. some of the heavier downpours, sliding into parts of the north bay, it was raining fairly heavily into san francisco just a few minutes ago but you can see now it is moving a little bit further to the north up toward richmond where elizabeth was looking at the camera there, some showers also moving into novato, vallejo, it's coming your way into petaluma and napa. you had one band move through and another one is coming your way. so you get the idea those showers will continue on and off throughout the morning hours. then i think by the afternoon
5:16 am
starting to taper off. here's what's interesting though. on the back side of this storm system, look at this little swirl, this little low coming right by the bay area. this may be just enough to continue to trigger those showers throughout the morning, maybe even an isolated thunderstorm. all right. so we head you out the door today. it's a little wet in spots this morning. i think tapering off into the afternoon. temperatures going to be cooler and then there's more rain on the way for tomorrow. another storm system headed our way. storm 1 is breaking down the ridge opening the storm door and here's storm 2 that will roll into the bay area about the middle of the day for tomorrow. if you're traveling around the state, be careful it's wet about of where you go. it's a fairly warm storm system so snow levels are very high so looking at rain into lake tahoe for today. showers continuing on and off throughout the morning hours. then heading home, just more widely scattered showers but really starting to diminish and then calming down overnight but only a brief break. here comes the next storm toward the middle of the day tomorrow rolling on through
5:17 am
packing a punch moving through rapidly and quieting down. late friday into saturday, another storm moves in to make things wet into the weekend. so far .10" in the wettest spots near a half inch in the north bay mountains, tenth of an inch into san francisco and lesser into the south bay. not a gigantic storms but getting wet this morning temperatures in the 60s by the afternoon with some scattered light showers. tomorrow another storm rolls in a brief break on friday, then friday night into saturday a chance of some more rain on the way. if you would likeget your weather on the go, you can download our latest app for the apple and android. get your latest hour-by-hour forecast, your latest doppler radar, all the weather you need on the go, just go to your app store and search "kpix" and you'll be able to download and find it there. and, of course, these next few days you can probably use that. >> or listen to lawrence karnow. >> that might be a better idea. >> thank you. we have a little more on that wet weather now, don't we? >> yes, we do. roberta gonzales is in the
5:18 am
north bay with the umbrella out. hi, roberta. >> reporter: hi there, michelle. i began my morning commute in pleasanton and then i headed westerly and towards the city of san francisco. good 45 miles. the roadways were dry. once i got to san francisco, jumped in our news van, we headed due north. we headed over the golden gate bridge where the road is glistening from a little bit of light rain showers in that particular area. and keep very much in mind this morning with this kind of a light rainfall, it brings the oil very close to the surface so it makes the your stopping distance a bit slippery. give yourself some extra time. we're in novato and once we arrived here as soon as we did open up the car doors, bam, the light rain began to fall. and that's where we are this morning. in the northern portion of the bay area, our kpix 5 weather team consisting of lawrence karnow, paul deanno and myself, we all put our heads together and came up with about a half inch of rain expected in the wettest locations of the highest elevations of the north
5:19 am
bay, that's what we expect here today. not a major storm but the big headline is it's the first in a series of systems. the second one rolling in tomorrow late morning hours. the third one coming in on saturday. that will provide us with the most rainfall. now, keep in mind if you are heading to the high sierra as lawrence was mentioning this is a warm system. no snow expected until saturday. reporting from novato, roberta gonzales, kpix 5. chris hence worth is this year's sexiest man alive according to "people" magazine. the australian-born actor became a superstar after starring in the four movies. he is filming this year. he and his wife have twin sons. tune into kpix 5 on december 9 to watch the victoria secret fashion show. pop sensation ariana grande is performing so is that woman there, taylor swift. the show films in london this year for the first time and
