tv Today in the Bay NBC April 10, 2014 4:30am-5:01am PDT
well, good morning to you. 4:30 this thursday. i'm scott mcgrew. >> i'm laura garcia-cannon. a lot to get to this morning, first a check of the forecast. good morning, rob. >> foggy starts in parts looking back towards san francisco, see the low clouds on top of the towers of the bay bridge and what to expect the low clouds bringing misty skies around the coast and into san flun this morning as we head towards the afternoon, temperatures inland cooling five to ten degrees and fog come rolling back in as we come towards this evening right around 5:00. today's highs mid-70s around san
jose and upper 70s near san mateo and low 60s near san francisco and this morning that fog, mike, reducing visibility down to about a mile in santa rosa. >> watch the north bay. sometimes we catch some fog okay and sometimes you see across the golf course but it's dark right here. watching the tops of the towers and moving across the span, that's key. look at the map, construction overnight and emergency road work and scott and lauren, we'll talk about that in a second. traffic is flowing in and out of san francisco just fine. watch the low clouds as they sink down across the bay. nice easy dry throughout the bay, especially the south bay where we have construction work going on. that's about it, guys. we'll track the east bay, coming up. back to you. in fact, i have pictures of that. three eastland lanes and two westbound lanes shut down for
several hours. crews repairing the large pothole. because the eastern span runs right under the western span, crew husband to close off the eastbound lane, three of them while repairs were going on overhead. fans leaving the giants game, boy, they were stuck and backed up into the overnight hours. chp opened all the lanes around 2:poth 2:30 this morning. developing news out of ocean beach. the desperate search continues right now in the watters for a boy that was swept out to sea. "today in the bay" christie smith with new details about that overnight search. good morning. >> good morning to you, lauren. i just spoke with san francisco firefighters and they have a mobile command post set up here at ocean beach and they say the reason they're doing that is because the coast guard still has one cutter in the water right now. and if they need help right away, ground support, these firefighters will be ready to provide that. i also spoke with the coast guard and what they're telling me is they have one cutter in
the water and the coast guard cutter "stockeye" but patrol golden gate bridge and south of ocean beach this morning and that's because of water drift patterns overnight. still looking for that 14-year-old teen. it was yesterday afternoon a man and his teenage son and nephew were here along ocean beach walking and the teen went to play in the water near the shore. that's when they were suddenly dragged out to sea by a rip current. the man ran into save them and then a 17-year-old surfer saw what was happening, but he wasn't sure what to make of it at first. >> i saw a boy out there, his arms were flailing but thought he was just playing in the water, screaming to the dad and the dad points back to me and back at the son. i look over at the son. i pull him on my board. >> now, those water temperatures
overnight, we're told, about 55 degrees. rather cold. he rescued the 17-year-old and saw the dad bobbing in the water unconscious and that's when paramedics got involved and he didn't have a pulse but was taken to the hospital where his pulse was back. also wanted to mention the surfer's father is actually a captain with the san francisco fire department, certainly proud of his son for what he did. now, what theicose guard coast telling me come day break more resources in the water but because of the fog, it is very possible they may not be able to have a helicopter in the air, at least for the morning. reporting live in ocean beach, christie smith. >> thank you very much, christie. some parents in the south bay voicing concerns about the safety of a dicaay care. the state is investigating de colores after some parents complained about abuse. changes in their daughter's
behavior and bruising has been a concern. >> i saw a hand print, which i thought was very odd. i brought it up to them and she told me, it couldn't have been there. i don't hit my kids. >> my daughter was coming to me telling me she was being hit. >> the center is currently being investigated by the state's department of social services during inspections this year. state documents say the center had unqualified staff working with infants. too many kids with a number of staff with the kids on duty. just last month state officials found the child unsupervised in a bathroom. the day care did post the state inspection notices as required by law. we asked the supervisor if they wanted to talk about the allegations, they are not returning our call. the center is located in the santa theresa neighborhood near the section of 805 and 101. the man who caused another car to crash in the florida day care is on the run this morning. one girl was killed and 14
others, mostly children, were hurt. it happened yesterday just north of orlando. police say they're looking for a 26-year-old man they say has been arrested eight times since 2000. they say the suspect's suv hit a convertible causing that car to jump a curb and crash through the wall of the day care. the suspect's suv was found a few hours later. school closed this morning at the pennsylvania high school where nearly two dozen people were stabbed yesterday. one student had emergency surgery overnight and is listed in extremely critical condition. he was stabbed several times. doctors do say he could die. yesterday witnesses say 16-year-old alex hribal had had a blank expression on his face as he went through the hallways slashing students with two large knives. hribal who made his first appearance in court is being charged as an adult. he is facing dozens of charges, including four counts of attempted homicide.
his motive, though, still a mystery. >> not at this point. there's talk out there of certain things happening with a threat and things like that, that's part of an investigation and we'll look into that. it's early and we'll put that together. >> we'll help support resources them here for them. this community is a special place and i don't want that to be last lost. >> hribal told them he wanted to die. he is back in court at the end of the month. another underwater ping was detected about an hour ago as crews search, they continue that search to look for missing malaysian airlines flight 370. an australian naval plane picked up a signal in the same area and sounds were first heard earlier in the week. those pings are consistent with the plane's black boxes. crews will analyze it overnight. the smallest search zone yet. this morning a photograph of
san francisco international airport is raising terrorism concerns. it was featured in an international publication run by al qaeda. this picture here shows an air train car used at the airport to shuttle passengers. the caption encourages people to assemble bombs. the fbi says it does not believe there is any safety threat to the public. yesterday, the picture was brought up at capitol hill. california congressman eric says people should not be afraid, they should be alert. >> the photo is certainly concerning. it is calling on al qaeda members to carry out a terrorist attack and a year after the boston marathon bombings, we should be mindful that rogue individuals inspired by al qaeda can use household items to carry out these devastating attacks. >> now, we spoke to a terrorism expert at uc berkeley who says it's highly unlikely the sfo picture was intentional. it's likely just a stock
photograph. this all remains an open investigation, of course. 4:38 right now. time to turn to our microclimate forecast taking a live look outside this morning from san jose. light out there.ic is kind of we'll get to that part of it with mike coming up in a little bit. look at those skies, little foggy in some parts, too, rob? >> really the big part of the sto story, 40s and 50s outside. those temperatures around san francisco and the coast right now, not too bad around the south bay and 54 degrees in san jose around the peninsula you're mostly seeing temperatures in the 40s from san mateo and low 50s there tri-valley waking up to temperatures mostly in the 40s to low 50s. now, notice the visibility mild, mike has been keeping a close eye on this for your morning commute. heading towards san francisco and down the coast to santa cruz, less than a mile visibility impacting highway 17 as you head up over the hill. patches of low clouds lingering
around the inner bay and the coast even into the late morning hours. west of the golden gate and then late today high clouds coming up out of the south, which hints at some changes for the mountain areas by the time we get into friday afternoon. an isolated shower, perhaps, up around lake county as we get closer to the start of the weekend. sea breeze sticking around and temperatures pretty comfortable and san francisco low 60s with the low clouds coming back in by 5:00 this evening and temperatures comfortable there in the north bay looking pretty good. >> you are talking about the fog in the north bay, the low clouds. still over to san rafael and the camera that rob was talking about, folks. visibility in santa rosa and north of here, even worse than this. traffic flows very smoothly right here and what you need for stopping distance, can't see much more than that at times. the orange overlay shows you the fog and petaluma and along the coast as rob was talking about. watching that closer to the golden gate bridge not as much
