can. the state's bureau of forensic services is being asked to help i.d. the victim. all the san francisco medical examiner will say at this point is the body belongs to a light-skinned man. >> thank you. the pleasemeasles are threading. these new cases are raising bigger concerns, because marin has the highest percentage of unvaccinated children. jodi hernandez, were those two kids vaccinated? >> reporter: the county health department says the two siblings were not vaccinated. they're among a pretty big group of schoolchildren here not fully vaccinated because of parent's personal beliefs. tonight, many doctor's offices are getting flooded with phone calls and visits from concerned parents.
15-month-old cyrus is getting his measles vaccination. news of to confirmed cases where he lives has his parents nervous. >> the idea that it's here and people aren't vaccinated is upsetting to me and it's time that we move beyond the faulty research that's kind of led to people not being vaccinated. >> reporter: the health department confirms two siblings contracted the virus while at disney land. because they weren't at school during the time they were infectious, their schoolmates have not been asked to stay home. >> i'm worried that we're going to see more cases of measles. i'm very concerned that a child will get very sick. >> reporter: he's been swamped since yesterday trying to make sure his patients are up to date with vaccinations. what adds to his worries, the
fact that the county has the highest rate in the bay area of children not fully vaccinated because of parent's personal beliefs. 6.5% of the county's school kids fall into that category. dr. nelson says some kids have clusters of unvaccinated children, as high as 30% to 50%. >> unless we have enough people in the community who have received their vaccines, the diseases will come back. >> reporter: again, that little boy you saw in the video did get his measles vaccine today. as far as the two children who contracted measles, they have been isolated and will remain so for three weeks. reporting live i'm jodi hernandez, nbc bay area news. >> jodi thank you. this outbreak has many local doctors taking a hard stance against families who don't vaccinate their kids. many pediatricians are refusing any patients who is refusing
vaccinations. some patients are saying it's effectively doctors firing the patients. many doctors say they're just setting the rules. >> i just tell them straight out, if they don't want vaccinated, i say this is not the right place for you to go period. >> most doctors point to overwhelming evidence proving the vaccines are safe and say it's not fair to have young children exposed to an unvaccinated person in their waiting room. the test results are in. two patients being treated for ebola do not have the virus. yesterday we told you about a patient that showed symptoms consistent with ebola, but a test done by the sacramento county public health lab came back negative. health officials haven't said whether the two cases are related. it's a major development in the investigation into the cozy relationship between pg&e and
the state's public utilities commission. pg&e produced 65,000 e-mails that offered details on that relationship. tony, it was a massive stack of information released just today. >> reporter: no doubt, a massive amount of e-mails were posted online and the website crashed about 20 minutes ago. we got back in recently and we've gone through self-hundred of them and there's lots of details. here's what we're trying to confirm. this is what we're looking into. more evidence of inappropriate relationships between the utility regulator and the cpuc. basically, last year about 7,000 e-mails uncovered hundreds of improper communications between top execs and power brokers inside the puc. following the release of those documents, three top executives were fired from pg&e.
state prosecutors have launched investigations into possible criminal action. san bruno has spent more than $200,000 to get these documents public. >> a lot of this shouldn't have happened in the first place. the exposure was not an accident. we're trying to get to the bottom of it. we want a safer utility and safer regulators as we go forward. >> reporter: pg&e did say the company has learned a critical lesson from this experience and is in the process of developing a world class regulatory compliance model. we'll hear more tonight at 6:00 and we'll have more on what we find inside those 65,000 e-mails. raj, it's literally 40 giga bytes of information. >> we know you'll be busy tonight. thank you, tony. out of the race. mitt romney said he's skipping the 2016 presidential race. romney, who was polling the

>> reporter: janelle, there's no question about that. he was asked about the ray rice situation, about adrian peterson. and of course deflate gate which is really topic number one at super bowl xlix, because everyone wants to know did the patriots use this as an unfair advantage. what happened was, it was in the afc championship game and they want to know if the patriots deliberately or negligently underinflated footballs. robert kraft said if the pats are found not guilty he wants a public apology from his friend and the commissioner roger goodell. something the commissioner addressed today in his super bowl state of the union address. >> this is my job. this is my responsibility to protect the integrity of the game. i represent 32 teams. all of us want to make sure the rules are being followed and if
we have any information where a potential is that those rules were violated i have to pursue that and i have to pursue that aggressively. so this is my job. this is the job of the legal office. it is somewhat all 32 clubs expect, our fans expect and we will do it vigorously. it is important to be thorough and fair. >> reporter: interesting to note that robert kraft was not in attendance. usually the owner of one of the teams participating in the football is at the state of the union address. let's go back to you in the studio. >> thanks dave. no raiders or niners in the super bowl. but there are plenty of bay area fans in arizona for the big game. >> even if you don't have a ticket many fans checking out this called the nfl experience which is an interactive showcase, just a big party in downtown phoenix. a live look here. terry mcsweeney is at this party, having fun.

offshore winds. it will be breezy maybe gusty at times tomorrow morning. 15 to 30-mile-per-hour but your average wind speed is going to be about 5 to 15 miles per hour. but that's a drying and warming wind. so throughout the afternoon hours, 10 to 15-mile-per-hour coming out of the north and the east. should help to boost up the temperatures. here's what it will mean on throughout saturday. it will stir up the air enough. we should not have a spare the air day in effect. the air quality will be moderate at least. sunny skies and temperatures as we end january here pushing into the low 70s. 73 in morgan hill. 71 also for san jose. palo alto will shoot up to 71 and sunny skies. close to that in pacifica. most of san francisco will be close to that 70-degree mark. the financial district heading out to the farmer's market, right around 70 by the average.
