4:07 pm
the storm left behind and tells us whether this rain is putting any sort of a dent. in our drought. the rain from this morning storm didn't come down too hard this time around, but it did come down for hours and hours. what a one at lucky drive and marin county is a typical flood spot for traffic, but the rain only caused some standing water not enough to prevent cars from passing through. this storm was much more manageable. you know, little bit of rain here and there a little bit of wind. the marine county sheriff's office says they had additional resources on standby to respond to any emergency. luckily today, there weren't many pretty good sized trees came down around 3 30 this morning had some power lines blocked both directions of shoreline highway a tree down north of point. reyes closing highway one for hours. the sheriff's office says that was the worst of it. trees fell all over the bay in aranda, a tree blocked traffic along happy valley road

4:09 pm
normal or above normal. that's not true for southern california and for the reservoirs that are in the southern half of the sierra nevada reporting in marin county. i'm james torrez ktvu. fox two news. and all that rain we received down here in the bay area. well, it came down as snow up at the sierra. several inches of new snow fell overnight and into the morning hours up in the higher elevations. all this early season. snow is, of course, great for business up there this morning, heavenly and northstar resorts announced plans to open up on november 19th. well, a man has been arrested in the deadly stabbing of his mother in walnut creek police say it happened around five o'clock yesterday morning on jones road, which is right near interstate success. 80. they say that 74 year old darlene roth was able to call 911 after being stabbed. she was taken to the hospital where she died. police arrested her son, 41 year old nicholas roth, at the scene on suspicion of murder. the chp is trying to reassure the public that bay

4:37 pm
news. this thursday is veterans day, and in today's giving day, we're putting the spotlight on an east bay nonprofit that helps provide housing to people who are living on the streets, where the special focus on veterans who are experiencing homelessness. i talked earlier with tameka perkins from operation dignity about the organization's mission to help vets and others regain stability. in addition to working with our veterans, we provide emergency transitional and permit and some permanent housing for veterans and their families. we also conduct the city of oakland's outreach teams where we also run and manage three community cabin site as well as one rv site in the city of oakland. and of course i mention is, everyone is to get folks house and house right stable, so we provide rest and respite both in our emergency shelters as well as in our community cabin sites where we can allow people to come in from outdoors. take that opportunity to rest. behind you know a lot key for
4:38 pm
safety security, and then once they have rested, then we start working on them with some of the barriers of how and why they became homeless in the first place and then start tackling them one by one, until we get to a point where we're able to refer them to permanent housing. how difficult is it to reach the people that you serve? and then what are the biggest challenges in terms of getting them from from a temporary housing situation to something that's more permanent? i think the biggest married for reaching thoughts is establishing that trust right. a lot of folks have been told so many things by so many people so kind of building that trust with folks like you're not just a number, but that we truly care about where you're going and what's happening to you. so um, that's kind of the biggest obstacle is his first gaining that trust and the second is affordable housing. right like we can do all of the outreach and that we want, but if there's nothing on the other end of that, it's kind of a mute point. right so you know the city is doing a lot. um but
4:39 pm
we still need permanent supportive housing. right i just putting people in housing but addressing the issues of how they became homeless in the first place so that they don't fall back into housing. and with that, being said, when it comes to either veterans who are find themselves living on the streets, or anyone else for that matter what what? what are some of the what's the common thread that you off most often here in terms of. how somebody wound up living on the streets and found themselves homeless trauma. so unfortunately with our veterans, of course you have those who have come home from the vietnam war and various wars, so they're dealing with ptsd and things aren't as they were when they left re adapting back into society right now, they're looking for jobs, or they're trying to manage their mental health or their physical disabilities on their own. and so that has been a challenge, right and then. affordable housing because you know the berry is very expensive to live here. so if you're cutting minimum wage is very difficult. it doesn't matter if you served
