right now, hours and hours of rain finally clearing out but not before causing troubles all over the bay area. good afternoon. i am len kiese. >> i am amanda starrantino. we have team coverage on the aftermath and clean up from the storm. we will start with meteorologist darren peck who has been tracking all this rain. i think a good place to start is just to take a quick look back at how we are done. since we started this storm on saturday evening we picked up over 16 inches of rain on mount tam. san francisco got over five inches. san jose got almost two inches. here is live high def doppler. that system is moved into southern sierra. we are in the clear flow. there might be a stray shower
or two which works through perhaps the east bay in a pop up shower kind of variety over the next hours. but it will be short lived and wouldn't be much. there is a chance for more light rain tomorrow. we'll look at that. it is nothing like yesterday. still, rain is rain. we will track it in the forecast. i will see you with that in a few minutes. a live look at the pge outage map. bay area wide nearly 60,000 customers are still without power. that is an improvement. at its height 380,000 were in the dark sunday and now the north bay and peninsula are seeing most outages. new, all evacuation orders lifted for san mateo. >> neighborhoods along the peninsula were hit hard by the storm. joycelyn moran is live where a flooded street proved pretty impassable for some drivers. >> reporter: that's right. right now the flooding has gotten a little bit better compared to early this morning.

yesterday. we had to rush this morning to get ice to try to salvage as much as we can from the fridge contents. >> we woke up this morning with no power. we are hoping when we get back after this walk, we'll have power. >> reporter: the storm over the weekend created conditions many residents can't remember experiencing in the bay area. >> it's kind of scary. you would think we are living in florida or texas somewhere with the weather conditions like this. >> reporter: pge says many of the outages were caused by downed trees. we did see power restored in areas like foster city. again, still many people are being impacted. >> joycelyn, thank you. justin andrews continues our live team coverage this afternoon. he is live in pleasanton with a look at the storm damage in the east bay. justin. >> reporter: absolutely. we have been all over alameda county for pretty much all day.

happens where the entire road way shuts down, it takes our hands away. >> reporter: the freeway was shut down for nearly ten hours. the rainfall left roads flooded in alameda like this one on harbor bay parkway. alameda county fair took a hit as well with the overnight storms. these are damage pictures of the aftermath, vendors' items scattered all over and some tents were knocked off by winds. crews have been working pretty much all morning to make sure that the fair is able to open at 3:00. they're still doing work at the fair grounds. they do intend to open doors at 3:00 even with some of the storm damages they're currently cleaning up. justin andrews, kpix5. >> thanks. take a look at this, pleasant hill police showing car on fire overnight while stuck in a flood. police are reminding you to not

to choose user engagement over truth. redacted copies have been shared with journalists around the world by a congressional source. they include allegations facebook knew vaccine hesitancy was rampant in comments, that facebook missed most of the hate speech on the platform in afghanistan and this one charts how a dummy account can be served up conspiracy theories in just two days. then there was the january 6th attack on the capitol. according to the document safety measures in place ahead of the election were rolled back on facebook and only reintroduced after the riot broke out. we heard from a whistleblower who spent 11 years helping build facebook and he is sounding the alarm as facebook plans to develop its own virtual world. he says you can't trust it. >> no, you shouldn't. you should be terrified. if the company is going to build a new meta verse but is
going to have safety, security, protecting against misinformation and hate speech as a relatively low priority, what world is that going to be? >> in a statement a facebook spokesperson told cbs news that the leaked pages lack could be text and leave incomplete distorted picture of our company. i spoke about all of this with c net's editor in large and he says it may lead to federal regulation. >> a lot until this point has been very partisan, very focused on stuff like censorship and issues that were very hard to debate and didn't really go anywhere. what we are now focused on is the harm that we can actually point to that facebook does to society. >> the facebook papers are now part of a large compiled of
