tv Today in the Bay NBC July 15, 2013 5:00am-6:01am PDT
commute. the tri-valley had some slowdowns. we look at the incline of the bay bridge. this is our emery camera looking toward san francisco. it's monday, july 15. you're watching "today in the bay." it is 5:00. good morning to you. i'm march la tas. and i'm laura garcia-cannon. today in the bay's christie smith live in oakland where property was damaged and an american flag burned during the demonstrations. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. that verdict was read across the country but very strong reaction right here in oakland. i want to show you, this is the sears building here at 20th and telegraph in oakland where windows, glass was shattered saturday. we also saw some boarded-up windows closer to city hall. overnight oakland police
declared an unlawful assembly and tried to disperse a large crowd near city hall. but earlier, a largely peaceful crowd marched through downtown, some chanting "rest in peace, trayvon martin," but by midnight a small group had started breaking windows and spray painting. as you said, there was an incident with an american flag. george zimmerman was actually acquitted of the shooting death of trayvon martin in florida. some walked down interstate 10, shutting down the highway for several minutes. also in new york, more than a thousand demonstrators crowded into times square and the surrounding streets. there was gridlock there for more than an hour. also wanted to mention, here in oakland, mayor dean quan made a
statement. he said some of them dishonored the memory of trayvon by engaging in cities that hurt the city, hurt the growing economy, and it won't be tolerated. that's the latest from here, reporting live in oakland, christie smith, today in the bay. >> thanks, christie. while protests continue across the country, others say they support the jury's decision. >> george zimmerman was never guilty of anything except protecting himself in self-defense. >> that right there was zimmerman's defense lawyer. of course, he says he is happy with the verdict. over the weekend suggesting zimmerman never should have been brought to trial. as the attorney just mentioned, much of george zimmerman's case was built on a claim of self-defense. that has prompted questions about what constitutes self-defense and how it differs across the country. we spoke to steven clark, nbc legal analyst, to explain. >> you are allowed to use self-defense to defend off an imminent peril. and you're allowed to use deadly force if you're going to either
be severely injured or killed. the difference in each state, though, is whether you have a duty to retreat or escape before you use deadly force first. and in many states, you have no duty to retreat, and you can stand your ground and assert deadly force without escaping, even if that would have been easier to do. >> the department of justice has now agreed to investigate for possible civil rights violations in the george zimmerman case. clark says trayvon martin's family can also bring a civil suit against zimmerman. breaking news just coming into our newsroom, an early morning scare for people living in an apartment complex in san mateo. fire broke out just before 1:00 at the bridgepointe complex at highway 92. no one was hurt but several people were forced out of their apartments while the fire was put out. investigators are looking into the cause. in a few hours from now, a
blood drive will be held for victims of asiana aircraft for people still in the hospital. bob, you have an update on the survivors. good morning. >> good morning to you, marla. this will help blood supply for people still in the hospital. it will also help replenish the supply of blood that was partially depleted to help victims of last week's crash. this blood drive that's being put on by sfo, the represent tif representactives of the pacifica blood bank. anyone can walk up and contribute, but space is limited, so people are asked to call and make an appointment. 31 students and teachers who survived the asiana airlines flight 214 crash are back home in china. this is video from last night.
they had been headed for a summer camp in southern california when their plane went down last saturday here at sfo. i say last saturday, it was two saturdays ago. the three teenage girls killed in that crash had been members of this group. another group of 35 students and teachers who were on that plane will stay in the united states to continue their tour. that's according to the chinese consulate. your mentioning about the survivors, most of the people taken to the hospital after that accident have been discharged, however, there are still several who are still in the hospital, including at least two people who are still in critical condition. reporting live here at sfo, bob riddell, today in the bay. passengers in flight 214 who are seeking damages will get vastly different amounts depending on the country they are from. this is because lawsuits outside the country, outside the u.s., is harder to win payouts.
an attorney who is consulting with agents from asia say broken planes usually mean $1 million settlements in the u.s. the same injuries overseas mean 20 to $30,000 overseas. pittsburgh's city council one step away from approving an ordinance that would hold parents responsible for underage drinking parties. the social ordinance would charge or fine parents with a misdemeanor if underage drinking takes place at their home. according to a california healthy kids survey, 31% of kids' alcohol use said their consumption came from house parties. it will be the second city to have this ordinance. a probation chief will go on trial for child pornography charges. stuart forrest faces two counts of child pornography.

company say false science was used in coming up with that environmental impact report. today's rally is set for 2:30 at the waterfront in san francisco, a restaurant that gets oysters from drake's bay. let's see if it's a good day to have lunch outside. >> i think it will be. later this afternoon, once the sun breaks out, we'll see some pretty comfortable temperatures but a cloudy and cool day out by the coastline. 50 degrees on the coastline, 52 in fairfield. it's quite gusty now along the karkina strait. into the bay, we're seeing those winds stronging off the ocean pushing in low clouds, which by lunchtime, if you're going to be dining outdoors or doing some exercise today, it will spill back inland again before sundown tonight. our temperatures today, 50s. most of it inland towards the
tri-valley should see some low 80s and mid-80s toward morgan hill. second half of the week, that's when our temperatures will climb up and feel more like summer inland with 90s in the forecast thursday and straight into the weekend. rob? >> you're talking about those offshore winds coming up, bringing moisture along the karkina straits. this is along that path. there is a glow to the lights but i did scan with the camera and i'm able to see all the way up toward the folks coming off the richmond bridge and passing that racetrack. that's a good drive right now. we're showing you west 80 with the headlights on university avenue. speeds blipping around 58, and that's not a big deal as you travel through the maze as well. very light traffic so far getting easted into this monday morning. we also see this start typical. slowing around highway 84, but we had some more slowing starting here around the

credits c critical condition as he was buried alive over the weekend and now we're hearing the 911 calls that prompted the rescue. >> my friend's son, he got stuck in a sand dune and he's under the sand dune and we can't get him out. >> very frightening. six-year-old nathan wasner fell into a sand hold 11 inches deep while visiting on friday. he fell into a hole halfway up the dune. rescuers worked for more than three hours to get that young boy out. nathan's father and friend tried to dig him out but were unsuccessful. he is responding to simple commands but he does remain in critical condition. several reports that nelson mandela could be discharged from the hospital soon. his wife and the president say he is responding to treatment.

90s. satellite view shows not much happening now, but by afternoon south of lake tahoe might see a thunderstorm shower or two if you're heading to the high country. around the bay, we'll see the sea breeze keeping our temperatures cool. before sundown tonight, look at that, 6:00. you already have the fog getting into oakland. san jose will also see low clouds and some drizzle overnight into tomorrow morning. high temperatures around the bay area today cooler than what we saw this weekend. 70s around san jose, 80s further south around morgan hill to the tri-valley. we'll see numbers in the low 80s. 70s in caster valley and 70s in the north bay, only near 60 on the sea shore today from pacifica to half moon bay. wednesday, inland spots start to warm on up and we approached 90s inland. next weekend looks pretty toasty, 60s on the coast and 90s inland. just like we like it in the bay
area this time of year. very light traffic, very pleasant. no problems reporting at 280 interchange. we do show yellow from that interchange with speeds down just below 60, so not a concern. light flow throughout the south bay. very smooth drive along the peninsula as well. just below the speed limit, but not a concern because the crews are all clearing from overnight constructions. we're driving across the bay. there is the san mateo bridge, looking really good. there used to be a side where we had some earlier construction. it sounds like the two lanes that are northbound on a street, they may be closed for the morning. fremont at 880, here's the truck scales northbound side as well. you see the light volume of traffic just north of tesla.
we'll look past the coliseum. just north of there, we're looking at the traffic here as well. this is your commute just past high street downtown. picking up the volume a little bit, but still limited from the coliseum all the way downtown and toward the bay bridge toll plaza. we're looking over toward the toll plaza itself. this is a different pattern than last week. last week we had these lanes off to the right of the fast track lanes. they are all open this morning. and these over here just off to the left have a couple lanes closed this morning, so that's what's been going on, they've been alternating, and that's the reason for a little back-up. send it back to you. thank you, mike. 5:20. california voters may soon be able to cast ballots on saturday. california state senator leyland yee started a bill that would allow them to vote one month up to election day. half of the counties already allow saturday voting.

low clouds all the way from livermore to fairfield. if you're traveling across karkina strait this morning, it is gusty as those winds are inland. the low clouds are going to stick around and come back inland for the evening commute there crossing the golden gate bridge heading into oakland. notice our inland numbers, pretty comfortable today. 70s and 80less s inland, closer 60s on the coast. temperatures start climbing up again beginning wednesday and thursday. mike? >> no delays reported for the karkinas bridge, but just north of the venetian bridge, there are reports. i'm tracking it. these are the curves approaching north san pedro road but still at a limit in arvada and the golden gate bridge. we talked about over on those lanes just to the left of the
fast track lanes, a couple of those toll cash lanes are closed this morning. but you see the volume kicking in over the last couple minutes. we're looking at the tri-valley where we also see slowing. coming down through livermore and pleasanton, you see vineland. we see highway 84 going through the area, slowing a bit at that interchange. highway 4, coming out of antioch, the tri-valley showing a lot of traffic right now. but you know highway 4 cannot resist that slowdown, guys. back to you. 5:26. reaction to the george zimmerman not guilty verdict hits the streets of the country, including here in the bay area. the clashes between police and protesters, coming up. plus, local search crews get ready to head back out this morning, hoping to find a missing toddler. we'll have the latest on their efforts. a live look outside.

around, to keep tabs on things like that. all the fog he was talking about out there, hopefully we'll clear thinz thin things up for you on this monday, july 15. this is monday, today in the bay. good morning to you, and thanks so much for joining us. i'm laura garcia-cannon. good morning. i'm marla taez. the protests over the george zimmerman verdict has spilled into cities, including here in the bay. apparently an american flag was burned during the demonstrations. christie, is all quiet this morning? >> reporter: good morning to you. some of these sears workers here in downtown oakland are starting to show up this morning and shaking their heads when they see what some of the store windows look like, all boarded up after van daldals broke out
the acquittal of george zimmerman in florida. police tried to disperse a large crowd downtown after violence started sunday night. earlier in the day, it was a largely peaceful crowd of demonstrators upset with how the verdict went. but by nightfall, some in the crowd broke off and started spray painting. on saturday night after the acquittal, much more tense with people vandalizing a car, an american flag burned. protesters encouraged to wear hoodies as trayvon martin did when he was shot. in los angeles, protesters crossed with police. some of them even blocked traffic on city streets and another group broke out from a larger march and blocked interstate 10 for a time, at least 30 minutes there while the mayor there tried to encourage people to be calm. the mayor here, jean quan, said, a small group of people gathered in downtown oakland saturday
night. sadly, some of them dishonored the memory of trayvon martin. she went on to say that by engaging in violent activities that hurt our growing economy and endangered people, this is unacceptable. we will not tolerate violence in our city. that's the latest from here, reporting live in oakland, christie smith, today in the bay. >> thank you, christie. while pro tetests continue acro the country, others say they support the jury's decision. >> there was just not enough evidence to convict him. >> george zimmerman was never guilty of anything except protecting himself in self-defense. >> that's zimmerman's defense lawyer who, of course, says he's happy with the verdict. over the weekend the defense suggesting zimmerman never should have been brought to trial. we will continue to follow the story throughout the morning. we'll take you live to the heart of the controversy, an update from sanford, florida in less than ten minutes away. it is 5:32. this morning the bay area will show its support to survivors of
the asiana aircraft. in just a few hours from now, a blood drive will be held at sfo for victims that still remain in the hospital. bob radell is live with how you can help out. good morning, bob. >> good morning. that blood drive will start at 9:00 this morning and run until 2:00 this afternoon. it will be at the baggage area at terminal 23 at sfo, and the whole idea is to replenish the blood supply for people sent to the hospital from flight 214, that crowd a week ago at sfo. they are putting this blood bank on in coordination of the pacific and standard blood bank. if there is any type of blood type they need the most, it would be o negative because that's the blood type anyone can receive regardless of their blood type, and it's the blood type they give people in traumatic situations like an air
crash. anyone can donate, but space is limited, so you are advised to call in advance and make an appointment. 31 teachers and students who you are survived that airplane crash are back home in china. they had been headed for summer camp in southern california when their plane went down a fewer hours ago at sfo. another group of 35 students and teachers who were on the plane will stay in the united states to continue their tour. that's according to the chinese consulate. there are still people in the hospital. now, most of the people initially taken to the hospital have been released, but there are still several people in the hospital, at least two of them still in critical condition. reporting live here at sfo, bob radell, today in the bay. it's 5:34. the search continues this morning for a two-year-old girl who was reportedly last seen in a parked car in oakland five days ago. oakland police joined dozens of volunteers yesterday in the search for daphne webb. her father reported her missing
and says he left her in his car while he headed into a convenience store. the man says his elderly mother was with the child in the car, but she has dementia. the father told police when he came out of the store, the girl was gone. the search is concentrated on a series of trails near the girl's home on keller avenue near interstate 580. this morning police are investigating the deadly shooting of a teenage boy. police received several calls of shots being fired on murtha drive in east san jose yesterday. when officers got there, a party was just breaking up. they found a teenager inside one vehicle with several gunshot wounds. that victim, who is believed to be 17 years old, was taken to the hospital where he died. no arrests have been made. it is still unclear whether the city's 28th homicide was gang related. authorities in san ramon looking for the cause of a wildfire. a fire broke out near albion road and silva way.
it took crews several hours to contain that fire but not before it scorched 30 acres. san ramon fire had 30 firefighters on the scene. cal tran was also called in to help. no structures were damaged and no one was hurt. we now bring you breaking news we're following. an early morning scare for people living in an apartment complex in san mateo. fire broke out just before 1:00 at bridgepointe apartment complexes. that's just north of highway 92. crews were able to put those flames out within an hour and a half, and these are actually live pictures from the scene right now. you see that streets are actually still cordoned off by police as fire crews are still there. the good news to report, no one was hurt. dozens of people were forced out of their apartments, however, while the fire was put out. they have now been allowed back in their homes except for six apartment units. an investigator on the scene tells us it appears the fire started in the laundry room from
a dryer. meteorologist rob maetes in for christina this monday. we have a nice day in store and it's going to warm up through the week, too. >> if you like 90s in the forecast, that's coming up later on, but meanwhile this morning, a lot of low clouds. you get a taste of embarcadero weather in the 50s this morning. pretty gusty around karkina strait this morning. southeast wind in san jose also bringing in some low clouds along the south valley this morning. in the afternoon you can see some of these hilltops in white. still seeing dryer conditions above the marine layer and that's where fire danger will be the highest over the next couple afternoons. cloud cover heading to lunchtime, mostly cloudy skies inland, but you already have fog spreading across the bay heading into the east bay as early as 0
7:00 this evening. i do think toward sfo and san francisco, you'll see some wind gusts at 30 miles an hour and cooling by 4:00 as that sea breeze stays pretty calm. keeping our temperatures down the next several days, and temperatures begin to climb guenin lands. starting thursday, lasting through the weekend. mike? >> looking over here by the bay bridge, we have the start of a backup. it looks a little stronger than we usually see. that includes folks at 880 crossing. we have one less cash lane open, but it should open in a few minutes. a good volume of traffic. no delays on the map, though, for the east shore freeway or the approach through the maze and out of the caldecott, still looking just fine as far as that flow of traffic, so it's just at the toll plaza itself a little heavier. antioch, speeds dipping below 20
at their start point as you come past lone tree, and things should get clear heading toward pittsbur pittsburgh. this is northbound 101 over the 680 interchange. it started about 5:30. that's a little early for the first burst of traffic, especially for a monday, but we're tracking it and it's holding pretty steady for the east bay right now. the san mateo bridge showing a good volume increase over the last five minutes as well. no delays but you have a lot of company. we'll watch the build on the hayward side as well, but so far 880 looks smooth on the peninsula side at 92. 5:39. reaction is pouring in from across the country on the george zimmerman trial verdict. we'll have a live report from florida, next. plus, almost ready to race. following a deadly crash, sweden's artemis sailing team

verdict. thousands taking to the streets over the weekend in cities, like i mentioned, l.a., new york city, chicago, here in florida, tallahassee. all these gatherings, word of them spreading through social media, firing up debate about gun control, race, self-defense laws in america. many of these protesters calling for federal civil rights charges to be filed against george zimmerman. now, he is not without his supporters who say that the jury made the correct verdict in this case, but his court troubles may be far from over. like i mentioned, the u.s. department of justice continues their assessment into martin's death, and an attorney for the martin family says his parents are considering filing a civil lawsuit against george zimmerman, although for now they say they prefer to focus on the memory of their son. marla, back to you. >> okay, sara doloff live from central florida, thank you so much. at cirque de soleil will resume in las vegas tomorrow night, 17 days after an acrobat
