have reports that several men stole five cars from formula 1 motors and another eight from mercedes-benz. it is very suspicious. >> okay, they're going to have to up their security. thanks, bob. >> also developing this morning, more evacuations are under way near pollock pines as low humidity, winds and higher temperatures are in the forecast. an additional 12,000 homes are in danger and crews say a strong gust of wind is all it could take to get the fire under
control. right now the fire is only 18% contained. people who live near the fire lines are finding ways to show their appreciation. people have put up banners so customers can sign their names and show their thanks. even the youngest of residents offering up appreciation and some sweets. >> what are you going to do with the candy? >> give it to the firefighters. >> this has been one of the most hospitable communities i've ever been deployed to. >> dozens of firefighters from the bay area have been deployed to help fight that fire several areas. >> so much particulate matter in the air. we talked about it yesterday, they had to cancel the ironman up in the tahoe area. that's still up there, isn't it? >> yes.
they're urging people to be careful. even if you're driving in the area, you're talking about very high levels of pollution. in the morning hours, your visibility is down to a quarter of a mile. if you want to keep that in mind, it's just not a great time to head over to the tahoe basin. as we head throughout the next couple days, that smoke is going to continue to drift towards tahoe, towards reno but we've got a storm system coming in and whenever that occurs, you get instability ahead of that front. at this time the wind is pretty calm in the bay area and you can see that will keep the smoke here out of the bay area. the wind is going to intensify for today. so firefighters are going to be on guard today and tomorrow and then hopefully we'll get some heavy downpours throughout friday. we'll keep you updated on that and your local forecast in just a few minutes.
right now back to you for the rest of the top stories of today. >> driving into san francisco this morning, you're being advised to expect heavier-than-normal traffic because the folsom street off ramp in the financial district is closed this morning. >> "today in the bay" is live by the off ramp where traffic is starting to build up already this morning. good morning, steph. >> reporter: good morning. the folsom street off ramp is said to be closed for half a year to make it more pedestrian friendly and to allow for more housing. joining us is eric young with the transportation authority. tell bus the traffic impact here. >> we are taking the folsom street offramp out of service but we're hoping that the impacts on the bridge aren't too drastic. we've been emphasizing is that
the harrison street off ramp is uneffective and open and that can get you to folsom as well and the fremont ramp remains open. >> we've got some events coming up like oracle, open world, 250 buses from the city and treasure island. >> we've done outreach specifically too oracle and to other businesses that we think might be affected. to let people know well in advance that this is happening. >> reporter: so more pedestrian friendly in the area, perhaps for high rises as well. >> we are in a redevelopment area. this is part of the transbay redevelopment plan. where we are right behind me is slated for housing in coming years, more than 600 units. so that is happening as well as
the safety improvements that will be coming about. >> reporter: eric young, thank you so much for joining us this morning. there will be some cement barriers put in place on the off ramp. coming up, the next report to area businesses. we'll have that live. >> thanks so much, steph. something people are going to have to get used to for quite some time. >> one of the recommendations, alternates there for the transportation authority, what are you suggesting to drivers this morning? >> that might be the easiest as far as changes and turn. let's talk them through that. harrison street probably your best right now. we're looking over here, sam and laura, but we do have the cash lanes backed up we may see the
metering lights turned on. we do see a good volume. we want to keep this volume a little lighter to ease folks heading into san francisco. harrison street on the opposite side of the fremont. you can't access folsom directly on there. you'll loop back around. if you exit fremont street, you have to take a series of four left turns into a a very congested area already. you'd have to do this whole circuitous route. that will mean taking last-minute lane changes getting off the bridge. use caution and watch out for your fellow drivers. we do see a smooth map right now, just the build starting. the earlier flooding through the park has cleared as far as any
slowing, no problems there. your typical build coming out of the altimont pass. back to you. >> recovery continues this morning after the south napa earthquake. this morning the county supervisor will meet to discuss extending its state of emergency. damage topped $5 million in the city of vallejo alone. supervisors are considering using millions from the county's contingency refund. >> meantime over in the south bay, santa clara city council members will be voting on whether to bench ray mcdonald
until the conclusion his charges. next door lashed out claiming the city was trying to protect business interests and the mayor agreed to discussion the issue tonight. >> a concentrated effort in the fight against isis. >> a u.s. team is teaming up with arab nations for a series of air strikes in syria. isis is responding. >> experts trying to hack the healthcare.gov web site. they're going to tell you what they found next. ...we need to break up.

employees hacked into the system to test security features. the experts said they found a number of features where the web sites were vulnerable to hackers. so some bit of confidence there. >> there we go, it's 5:46 right now. first day of fall. >> first day of fall feeling like summertime. we rarely get average. we did yesterday. that is what it's supposed to feel like for the last day of this summer. the first day of fall, it's going to be warmer out there 61 in san martin and temperatures are going to dive, we will be in chowder weather territory before you know it. so enjoy that vitamin d while it's still coming in full force for the bay area. we're at 61 in san martin, 69 degrees in beautiful san jose. so i want to start with a look at the bay area from space because this really tells the weather story of the day.
you can see from this picture, we've got widespread cloud cover out there similar to yesterday. temperatures aren't going to skyrocket, not too hot out there but it will be warmer than average for the first official day of fall. the north bay is looking good, it will be warm at 81 degrees, 73 degree, 74 degrees, for the east shore, meanwhile you'll hit 84 degrees, not a bad way coming your way out in the tri-valley. big changes as we head throughout the next 36 hours. we take it right to your futurecast, we stopped the clock for you. at 5:00 p.m., you can see showers moving into sonoma county at that point. the north bay is going to see the highest rainfall totals per usual, the classic front coming in from the north. as it comes in the south bay area, falling apart from the santa cruz mountains.
so not significant totals but enough to wash your car. after all, we are still in a drought but this is not the only opportunity for rain in our future. as we head throughout this thursday, a little bit of shower activity taking a break for friday, saturday and much of next week. and then for the first week of october, we get two good looking storm systems starting to organize in the pacific. it's a traffic tuesday. >> happy birthday. it's christina as birthday tuesday as well. there is a nice treat for folks. we do have the build. look at the map we're talking about out of the altimont has. nothing unusual. we'll track it because we already see a little build as folks are coming up. no surprises so far. your approach toward the bay bridge moves nicely. there's a game for the oakland a's tonight. an easy flow through the maze
right now but the metering lights are turned on toward the toll bay plaza. remember how that folsom street ramp will be closed. the harrison will loop you around and that will cause some to dart across the roadway. watch out for your fellow drivers. likely to see slower metering lights to keep traffic slower on the span itself. that first burst really kicking in now. just sudden burst of traffic at 6:80. back to you. >> the city is considering feedback it received about the future of the hammer theater center. that venue has been closed since june. now san jose planning to rent it
out when it finds a permanent solution to that building. and san jose also planning a major addition. the city plan will consider that plan this afternoon. >> good hands on for those kids. a second grader in connecticut back home this morning one day after a fox attacked him on the school playground. the fox bit 7-year-old evan on his wrist. he said he didn't even see it coming. a gym teacher ran to help him and the fox turned on her. >> my teacher got it off of me and i got up and ran away. >> she was being attacked as she was trying to get the fox off my son. i'm very grateful for her. >> a school psychologist was also bitten when trapping the fox under a recycling bin.
you're watching "today in the bay." >> welcome back. 5:53 on your tuesday morning. apple denying a report by tech crunch that it plans to shut down beat music. apple bought it back in may for $3 billion. at the time beats music only had a few hundred thousand subscribers. later now we're learning that
apple is expected to make some changes to beats which could mean the brand will go away but the service will not. >> a major milestone for the new san jose earthquake stadium this morning. >> the team is going to begin installing the stadium seating, giving one lucky season ticket holder watching her seat in go for itself. the stadium located near san jose airport is set to open in time for the 2015 mls season. who is pumped? we are. >> at&t park this morning giants still on the road, ready for game two in a key series. tonight's game starts at 7:10. and if you're up early with us, odds are you didn't see the end of the marathon game with the
dodgers. they held on to beat the dodgers 5-2. the two team battling out for the top spot in the national league west. excitement on both of baseball. the a's have increased their league in the american league wild card race. oakland now holds on to that top spot in the wild card race with on a handful of games to go. they'll play again tonight at 7:05. >> "the circle of life." have you seen this? while most people have the kiss cam, well, they have the simba cam. internet really loving the idea.
yeah, holding a player, too. many praising them for the alternative to the kiss cam. everyone loves babies but everyone hates the other lion scar. >> good morning to you. temperatures mostly in the 60s. it's the first day of fall. my birthday always trumped by the first day of fall. go figure. 66 on the east side, 65, 51 degrees -- what? get out your jacket. dress in layers up. up to 81 degrees out there. i'm working on my biceps so we can get that done. >> thank you for holding me up
simba style. we're looking over here toward the bay bridge. the metering lights getting into san francisco. look at the maps. there's a good slowdown at the toll plaza. that folsom street onramp is closed. meanwhile the rest of your routes are smooth. >> we're learning more details about the man who hopped the fence at the white house and made it all the way into the white house before he was arrested. >> and winded heat expected to make things difficult at pollock pines.
