6:00 am
wednesday, june 28th. natasha is off, but we are all here fully representing. >> that's right. >> i'd like that. hopefully the weather will keep you in that pumpful suspense. >> i like it. >> no idea. why not? 21 miles per hour, winds, you can see a nice south sea breeze. just dropped down to 18, but allowed the clouds to get into our inland east bay neighborhood. the sunshine trying to squeeze in between the clouds and ground. all right, your 12-hour day planner, mostly cloudy. drizzle closer to the coast. coast will stay in the upper 50s. middle line of temperatures, 68 at noon around the bay, 62 at 4:00, comfortable 68 at 7:00. temperatures warmest inland, 81 at 4:00 and 7:00, 73 degrees. how about the commute? >> starting to get tough. starting off with the bay bridge, metering lights on for
6:01 am
about 40 minutes now, so you are backed up through the maze and once you get past that, still not great, because we have a disabled vehicle blocking the right center lane just before we get to the 9th street off-ramp. westbound 80 into the green at 22 minutes. up to about 22 minutes for the bay bridge drive into san francisco and san francisco to the airport still in the green at nine minutes. three other issues in the east bay. those coming up next. >> thank you. this morning the senate republican health care plan is heading for a complete overhaul. yesterday president trump huddled with more than 40 senate republicans at the white house. he was unable to sway at least nine who have said they oppose the plan in its current form. republicans will now work on a new version and try again after the fourth of july recess. this morning on "good morning america," chief white house correspondent john carl said this exposes the limits of the president's influence over republican senators. >> there is limits, bottom line is, this president does not have
6:02 am
deep relationships with republican senators. he doesn't have much influence with them. in fact, the senator he is perhaps closest to of all of them is rand paul, who you remember he ridiculed during the primaries and who right now looks like the republican most steadfastly opposed to this bill. >> the rest of john carl's analysis next at 7:00 a.m. here on "good morning america" on abc 7. construction on building prototypes for president trump's planned border wall expected to begin this summer. four to eight companies are going to be getting contracts to build prototypes, but those contractors may not be from california, and that's because a bill has passed the state senate and it would prevent california from contracting with businesses that bid on the border wall. democratic lawmakers say the wall demeans and alienates illegal residents. republicans say the bill would cost californians tens of thousands of jobs. san francisco landlords may
6:03 am
face stricter rules when evicting tenants. the board of supervisors passed a law that requires landlords to swear under oath that they or a relative will live in the unit that is vacated following an eviction. the updated law heads to mayor ed lee. he has the power to veto it. new details in the shakeup at uber. former ceo travis kalanick can count on the support of at least one big name in silicon valley following his resignation. former yahoo! ceo marissa mayer is coming to his defense, suggesting kalanick was unaware of the culture brewing at uber because of the company's rapid growth. according to "the chronicle" mayer made the remarks while speaking at an event at stan yesterday and she said, "i just don't think he knew. when your company grows that quickly, it's hard."

6:05 am
every year that are caused by both the legal and the illegal fireworks. >> reporter: it's easier to report illegal fireworks this year than ever before. you can download a free app called nail 'em, then take a photo or audio clip of the fireworks, include time and location and the report will be automatically submitted to the appropriate authorities. you can buy safe and sane fireworks here in dublin, pacifica, san bruno, and other cities across the bay area. live in dublin, tiffany wilson, abc 7 news. >> thanks, tiffany. the safest way to watch fireworks is through a sponsored event in your city. head to our website,, and we have a full list there of the festivals, parades, and our area firework shows. now, a live desk update. >> from abc 7 mornings. >> new details now on the wildfire burning in the north bay. cal fire has just confirmed that the fire is out. it burned yesterday near wood acre, scorching about 40 acres
6:06 am
before fire crews gained control. a big concern, that much of marin county has not burned in 50 to 60 years, leaving decades of dry fuel surrounded by homes. and it's not just here, there are now at least 40 wildfires burning all across the united states. prepare to shell out a lot more money at the park in parts of palo alto. the city council ended up approving the big hike in parking permits we were telling you about yesterday. yearly permits are going to jump from $149 to $365. that's more than double. downtown permits will go from $466 to $730, up 60%. palo alto will give the extra money to a nonprofit to help companies buy transit passes for employees. the upside, parking is still free for the first two hours. oakland wants to spend $14 million to help people avoid living on the streets and beneath freeways. the city leaders plan on buying a hotel to offer transitional
6:07 am
housing for the homeless. residents could also receive job placement and drug rehab services. oakland voters have said yes to a bond issue to pay for places to house people. >> we're in a housing crisis, and they were overwhelmingly willing to vote for it and have those additional taxes. >> there's enough room, there's enough shelter for everyone, and everyone deserves it, you know? and we'll do whatever we can to help out. >> oakland city council still needs to hold one final session to approve selling the bonds. once that happens, the city could then buy a property. a big problem, this winter storms, when emergency repairs are set to begin. >> we are one step closer to ending daylight saving time in california. there is one big hurdle left. let's take a live look outside this morning with our abc 7 news now. we are keeping you up to date on weather and traffic through the weather and traffic through the entire b

6:16 am
surf period in april. officials say the piles were most likely weakened during the big winter storms earlier this week, and earlier this month the capitola city council approved a $126,000 emergency contract to repair the wharf to get the marina opened. the repairs scheduled to tentatively begin july 10th. if you're one of the people who hates daylight saving time, you might have a chance to get rid of it here. "the sacramento bee" reports the assembly passed a measure to repeal the 1939 law. now it's going to be up to the state senate. we should note senators rejected a similar bill last year. >> feels so good, though, when you have the extra hour. >> that's what i was thinking. as much as people are in traffic, extra hour during the evening to be home and outside and enjoy. my other thought, most of the summer sun comes up before 5:00. if we repeal daylight savings. you want the sun coming up at 4:45 in the morning?
6:17 am
>> well, we do. >> yes, but for you? i don't know. >> i like that. >> i'm trying. that's what the promo says, right? good morning. here's a look at sfo. yes, speaking of looking out for you, i found the arrival, delays are one hour and nine minutes. that's the average of planes getting past their scheduled arrival time. that's the longest we've had so far this week. more sunshine today and warmth. clouds and drizzle possible the next couple nights. warmest high is this weekend. 64 downtown san francisco. should be about 69. we're below average. look at daly city 59. marina and the sunset at 61. some of our cooler spots. east bay will be breezy north of the bay bridge, so oakland 68, but then you get to berkley at 69, richmond about 67. calmer, warmer towards fremont, 74, and union city 73. as we head to the coast, 61 at half moon bay to 58 in pacifica.
6:18 am
that's where the clouds are most stubborn. san mateo 71, but redwood city about 75. down in the south bay, quicker sunshine, easier chance of getting to 77 in san jose to los gatos about 81. head up north and we've got 83 in santa rosa. closer to the water, though, the breeze will keep san rafael about 76. and let's head into our east bay neighborhoods, 84 in concord and livermore and pittsburgh today. all right, 50 to 56 tonight with clouds once again, drizzle for the morning commute and fog is possible the next several mornings. this weekend warmest at the coast, 80 around the bay and a string of low 90s inland. here's alexis. >> checking out the toll plaza, metering lights since 5:21, coming up on an hour. still tough as you get into san francisco, although good news in the last few minutes, cleared that disabled vehicle near 9th street has cleared, but look at the line of red back to about
6:19 am
the ink line heading into the tunnel there. so it could merge with those delays coming out of the toll plaza. at least we are all clear at this point. checking out some drive times, southbound 680, seven minutes, westbound 24 walnut creek to highway 13, nine, and ouch, westbound 580 tracy to dublin one hour and 24 minutes due to the earlier problems near grant line road. they have cleared, so that should come down soon. one new issue at 880 in the hayward area. look at that coming up around 6:30. >> thanks, alexis. good morning america coming up. >> paula faris live with what's ahead. hi, paula, good to see you. >> good to be with both of you this morning. happy wednesday, everybody. coming up on "gma," trump gathering republicans at the white house as they are forced to work on a new revised bill for after their recess. will they succeed in their mission to replace obamacare? we're live from the white house

6:25 am
yours or any other charges that aren't yours. complain and see what happens. there are a few credit repair professionals who can really up your credit score, but they are far outnumbered by fake or poor actors in this industry. carl, good luck. >> all right. be warned. if you have a question for michael finney, record it on your smartphone, share it with us on social media, just use this hash tag, #askfi it is summertime and a new survey reveals the top 20 best beach towns to live in across the united states and can you believe it, only one california city made the cut. >> robbed. topping the list, naples, florida, followed by key west and edin prairie, minnesota. wait, eden prairie, minnesota. wait, mill valley? what? >> see, i think the survey's

6:32 am
romero was killed on a train january 9th. video showed the suspect exited the west oakland station, but there was no video of the murder on the train, because the cameras on the cars were all fake. the suspect is still on the run. that sparked outrage among passengers, so bart promised real cameras, and today the last one is being installed. >> i actually had one case that a guy made a speech on a bart and it was a little scary to me, so i feel safer if they have a real camera on. >> reporter: the total cost of the cameras is more than $1.4 million. here's a tip, take note of which car you're in, that number is posted above the doors of each car. if a crime is committed, it will make it easier to track down that video. reporting live, matt keller, abc 7 news. >> matt, thank you. new developments in the okland police scandal this morning. a federal judge is now ordering the city to appear in court to discuss how it handled the
6:33 am
investigation. the judge says a new report finds, quote, very troubling conclusions about how city leaders and oakland police acted after learning multiple officers had sexually exploited a teenager. the report found the city mishandled allegations and didn't really investigate what went wrong. that hearing will take place july 10th. a sacramento sheriff's deputy is stable this morning after being shot in the face. the 27-year-old suspect was taken into custody around 9:00 last night following the shooting on i-80 and watt avenue in sacramento. s.w.a.t. teams searched for him for several hours before tracking him to a nearby hotel. officers sent in a robot, that robot went room to room looking for the suspect. one guest had to be evacuated said the scene was chaotic. >> i was looking out the window and s.w.a.t. team basically pointed at me, at the window, and said the guy at the window, the guy at the window, then they came down, they had ak-47s and
