5:00 am
and then big changes coming your way. not what you would usually associate with may. we are talking about ample rainfall. details in just moments. and those gusty winds will catch you. here's the high rise. we're watching that as well as road crews on that eastbound side. let's take a live look outside this morning. bay bridge there from a distance. wind is whipping our cameras just a tad this morning. a cool start on may 12th. this is "today in the bay." >> from nbc bay area, this is "today in the bay." >> very good morning to you. thanks for joining us i'm laura garcia-cannon. >> i'm sam brock. we have an update to breaking news. this does not sound like it would be possible but nepal rocked yet again with a second strong quake in as many weeks. dozens more dead with a thousand injured. >> these people are not getting a break with the earth shaking there. "today in the bay's" kris sanchez is here with more on this increased devastation. >> we see video.
5:01 am
this is a village where the buildings just kind of crumbled. this quake, a magnitude 7.3. the last one was 7.8. i want to put the two on the map so you can see how close to each other they happened. today's was close er with the border of tibet. the good news is that the climbing season was canceled after the april quake. that one was closer to the city of kathmandu. we just got this video in to the newsroom. the earthquake triggering a landslide. this is part of the fear, especially as monsoon season approaches. the devastation not expected to end with the end of the earthquake. in this video, from the city of kathmandu you can see the panic as people try to get outside. you see them running outside. we see people, unicef worker, soldiers carrying victims out of a hospital for fear of collapse, women running with babies. one young woman said they wanted to get out of the building because inside the hospital walls were actually closing. in another neighborhood shell
5:02 am
shocked people poured into the streets where you can see bricks on the ground. and one person there says the jolt felt as strong as the one last month but not as long. that one killed more than 8,000 people and left a quarter million people homeless. you can also see people with cellphones frantically trying to make contact with loved ones. >> i'm waiting for my family. >> hotel guests and their employees evacuated into the streets. in the last earthquake in april we saw people too afraid to go back into the building for fear of aftershocks even weeks later. that is a valid fear. here's a map from the u.s. geological survey site showing the number of strong quakes that followed the 7.3 this morning. the usgs says there have been seven earthquakes of magnitude five or higher in nepal today include that very first one. as we mentioned, there are nearly 36 people now confirmed dead. more than 1,000 people are injured. according to nepal's home minist
5:03 am
ministry, the government expects the number will go up drastically this one was deeper, not as widely felt. yet people are feeling so shell shocked that i think anything is just -- feels devastating to them. >> just seems so cruel that the entire country would have to go through this ordeal again after what happened two weeks ago. >> indeed. >> thank you. we do have our own concerns of earthquakes happening here in the bay area. new questions this morning over seismic safety for the bay bridge. now bridge officials are getting millions of dollars to test the troubled bridge. here's a live look at the beautiful bay bridge. the latest concern? the steel rods securing the bridge's main tower to the base, to the new eastern span. new caltrans test indicate water from the bay may be seeping into foundation of some of the rods. that could lead to corrosion. according to the mercury news last night the bay area toll authority approved $4 million for additional testing. happening today, the bay area man accuse of assaulting a san jose girl inside of her home is going to face a judge for the
5:04 am
first time. here's the surveillance video we all watched in disbelief recently of that terrifying encounter. >> now sources close to the investigation say the suspect is also confessing to previous attack a month ago. >> "today in the bay's" stephanie chuang joining us live in san jose. stephanie, what is going to happen in court later today? >> reporter: sam and laura, in this case that video you showed police went viral and helped them catch the man who is due here at the hall of justice in san jose this afternoon. mohammed khaliqi has been behind bars at the santa clara jail since friday when police arrested him at his mother's house in san leandro. the 31-year-old fled after he was caught on camera cornering a 13-year-old girl trying to attack her inside her san jose home. that was last tuesday. just a week ago. she fought him off and he ran. police say khaliqi also unsuccessfully tried to sexually assault a 28-year-old woman in a rest room at the nearby japanese market and that was in early april.
5:05 am
sources close to the investigation tell us khaliqi has confessed to both attempted sexual assaults. police also say khaliqi lives down the street from both victims but changed his appearance by shaving his head and beard after the security camera footage started to spread. khaliqi was booked on multiple charges including attempted sexual assaults and burglary. he is set to be formally charged at 1:30 this afternoon. live in san jose, stephanie chuang, "today in the bay." >> thank you, stephanie. follow-up on the so-called pillowcase rapist. a state judge is allowing him to remain free despite fearses from community. prosecutors asked the judge to return him to a mental hospital because we he let the batteries in his ankle bracelet run too low two times. he admitted to raping more than tree dozen women in the '70s and '80s. he was released just last year to a neighborhood near los angeles. sometimes it's not what you
5:06 am
do, it's covering up what you did. a big debate in the football world this morning does tom brady's punishment fit the crime? not a chance. tom brady was suspended a quarter of the regular season. he cheated by having team assistance deflate footballs in the afc championship game. the nfl fibed the patriots 1 million bucs and two aatwo graft picks. many call that a very harsh response to what happened. some bay area critics who probably aren't patriots fans believe the league didn't go far enough and should have taken away the team's latest championship trophy. >> if the nfl really believes that the outcome of this game was effected by this issue, then frankly i think the team should suffer and the win should be vacated. >> not too many sports analysts who do think the outcome would have been different but certainly affects the integ grit at this time of the game. brady plans to appeal the
5:07 am
decision. consider the warriors up to the challenge. last night golden state came up huge in game four of the playoff series against memphis. mojo. team high 33 points. warriors, 101-84 win. the series is tied at two games apiece and back to the oracle arena for game five tomorrow night. and that place no doubt will be rocking. >> no question about it. part of you wonders was steph curry toying with us the entire time? enough. we savfaced some adversity cityt now we're going to put it to bed. christina, you're tracking it and the totals could be changing depending upon the months. >> yeah. well, they actually look very significant based on what we're seeing from all the different models. we're going to get to that, in-depth look at the rain coming up in my next report. right now though, look at the day ahead. we have some interesting changes coming to your pattern. we've got a little bit of wind out there for today. this is going to play a role if you drive a high-profile vehicle
5:08 am
to work. just getting to work could be tricky. watch out for debris on the highway this morning. this is a live look at emeryville where our camera is getting that shake this morning. temperatures, 48 degrees. good morning to you, san jose. 43 degrees down in san martin. 50 degrees in many concord to kek off the new day. the weather story of the day, breezy and chilly conditions. let me take it right to your day part forecast. you will need the jacket all day long. 61 degrees at noon in the south bay. 66 degrees in the north bay at lunchtime. you will be at 60 degrees on the east shore. here's the deal. this is about that time that wind is going to start to crank. then as we get into the afternoon, temperatures will be a little on the cool side. in fact, 10 to 15 degrees cooler than average for some cities for this time of year. 67 in the tri-valley. 61 degrees in san francisco. 71 degrees is the high for today. your various microcli malt showing you a cool mayday ahead. as we get into the next couple of days the changes arrive.
5:09 am
showers in the forecast. we'll talk about that coming up. right now let's check your drive. i bet that wind is making an impact, mike. >> impacting our cameras. we'll talk about that in a second. it will catch your car, your higher profile vehicle, a van or a truck. that might get swept side to side. so far the volume is light. not affecting any of our drives. the altamont pass showing slowing typical here. the change in the colors. regular green over here to this yellowish overlay. that's where road weather index is talking about the wind christina is talking about. sweeping through this area. we do have a disabled dump truck. however, it's the only off-ramp oyster point from southbound 101. so the freeway itself is clear. watch the larger vehicles as they head over toward the bay bridge, for example. we'll show you that camera ban that christina showed you. i'm p emeryville. it's shaking quite a bit. it will catch you for gusts. hold on, folks, back to you. >> thank you, mike. traffic of another kind of worry about this morning.
5:10 am
hundreds of the world's top cyclists are hitting the road for the amgen tour of california. >> high atop the hilltops is where we find it "today in the bay's" bob ridell live in san jose where stage three will kick off hours from now. talking about world class athletes here, bob. >> reporter: 141 of them. some of the best cyclists in the world, sam and laura. you can see right behind me, their colleagues. organizers of the race are already bright and early setting up the beginning of sage three here at the community center. this stage will be taking off from here at around 10:45 this morning. just under five hours from now. this comes on the heels of yesterday's stage two which wrapped up in sacramento with mark cavendish of great britain, first place. an american, robin carpenter, he is taking a third place right now. this is eight-stage race. stage three, what makes stage three unusual is that this is the only stage that starts and ends in the same city.
5:11 am
we're of course talking about san jose. so when it starts this morning it will be a very grueling 105-mile stage for these riders. they have to go up mount hamilton past the observatory. if you haven't checked the elevation maps, 142-foot climb. there's another climb involved in there as they head on to livermore. they will skirt through livermore and then come back on the other side of san jose into east foothills into the motoric so sole motorcycle county park. this is a five-hour roughly stage. and from there they will be heading south. there's five more stages after today. the final, an eighth stage, ending sunday in the los angeles area. when it's all said and done, this amgen tour of california, the tenth year of this race, will have encompassed 724 miles for these riders. that's quite a feat. reporting live in san jose, robbie derobob
5:12 am
ridell, "today in the bay." whether you have kids or not, a lot of people are opting to get mid-sized stufuvs not on because of the space but because of the safety. bigger doesn't mean safer. surprising results after the break. we'll look at how computers are driving cars as well. elon musk says i'm not as mean as everybody says.
5:13 am
5:14 am
5:15 am
santa barbara, suspect in connection to a shooting last night in isla vista turned himself in. last night deputies in uc santa barbara police arrived at a house to find three young men with gunshot wounds in their yard. one of them was believed to be one of the attackers but another suspect got away. that's the one who turned himself in at a hospital this morning. nearby ucsb dorms were put on lock down but have since reopened. this shooting comes during an emogaal time for that community. next week marking one year since the deadly shooting palm rage. you may remember a student went on a stabbing and shooting spree targeting students. three of the victims were from the bay area. fresno cannot teach a sin innocence only, a ruling from a fresno county judge who determined they must follow state law and teach birth control as part of the sex
5:16 am
education. parents sued the district in 2012 for using material that encouraged abstinence until marriage. the district then changed the policies. the judge sided with parents who will now have their legal fees reimbursed by the district. as the convenience of an suv but the practicality of a car. no doubt you're seeing more and more mid size suvs on the road. but they received mixed results from a safety standpoint in the latest round of crash tests. so the insurance institute for highway safety tested seven mid size suvs from the 2015 model year. most did okay. they all earned marginal ratings. the best performer overall was the redesigned nissan murano. that earned good ratings across the board and designated as top safety pick. ford flex earned an acceptable rating. the worst performer of the group was the dodge journey.
5:17 am
it was given an overall ranking of poor. speaking of crashes, the follow-up for you now on self-driving cars. >> do you trust them? scott mcgrew, a lot of talk this week about the number of accidents involving robot cars. it's safer, you said. >> that's right. on monday, laura, the "associated press" published a study that said there were four accidents last year involving self-driving cars. but as we pointed out two of them don't even count because the computers were not driving at the time and the other two don't count either because while the robot was in charge it was another car's fault. well, safetied a have indicay a that's not enough. we want to know about all the evidence of self-driving cars ever. so which google monday said fine and published those details. the answer, there have been 11 accidents all of them minor with no injuries and google said none of them was the computer at fault. so for instance when the self-driving car is sitting at a red light and gets rear ended that is an accident but it's
5:18 am
certainly not the robot's fault it was doing what it was supposed to do. it was waiting at a red light. critics would still like google to release the actual paperwork of each accident. that the company has not done. tesla wants to sell cars in the home of cars. michig michigan. but the state law wants to say only third-party dealers can sell cars, not manufacturers. the federal trade commission posted a new letter strongly urging michigan to change its mind. the ftc doesn't have jurisdiction there but it is a good idea not to make them angry. how is this as news before the bell? verizon just bought aol. let's turn to landon dowdy live at cnbc world headquarters. good morning, landon. >> hey, scott, that's right, the major deal was just announced. verizon is buying aol for more than $4 billion for verizon it gave access to aol's digital ad service and content which includes aol's site as well as the huffington post, tech
5:19 am
crunch, and end gadgets. checking your markets. there could be more red arose today. stocks close aufd the lows of the session on monday falling for the first time in three days. failed to have a winning or losing streak of more than three days since the end of march. dow falling and the nasdaq losing ten. scott, back over to you. >> consistently inconsistent. landon, thank you much. a new biography of elon musk is hitting the book stores. in the look the author ashlee vance has a conversation with musk berating an employee to miss work in order to witness the birth of his child. musk reported on twitter this morning saying it is total nonsense and hurtful to climb that i told a guy to miss his child's birth just to attend a company meeting. i would never do that. so it's sort of he said/he said
5:20 am
in the in the book the claim that musk did this refers to an anonymo anonymous tesla employee recalling an e-mail but not actually showing it to the author. so you have to decide who you believe. but then again, there are lots of interesting quotes in here from elon musk who clearly is a workaholic. >> go to the to the birth. just come after. >> that's fair. how about that? or bring the baby. >> fun for the whole family. >> we have an opening. start that 401(k) early. all right. it's 5:20. bay area crews will get hands-on training today as they gear up for very busy fire season. crews will hold drills throughout the city of brisbane today. the second in a series of training events in san mateo county this month. got a little bit of a taste of the real thing, the training very timely. already we've seen several small fires around the bay area. this one broke out in san martin yesterday coming dangerously close to homes there. it scorched ten acres just south of morgan hill.
5:21 am
firefighters were able to knock it down before any of those homes burned but certainly some concern over dry conditions right now. crews also dealing with a brush fire at pacheco pass. they had a difficult time getting a handle on the fire but strong winds burned nearly 300 acres along highway 52 by the time crews were able to surround it. let's find out if wind conditions continue today. >> we add some fierce wind once again and this means pollen levels will stay on the high side for today. but they're going to drop significantly as we head through the next couple of days. expect shower activity. that is great news. it's also going to help keep moisture around the bay area and keep our fire danger from getting too high. this time of year we could see very high fire danger and temperature in the 90s. it's been mild so far this month. go figger, we have more rain and snow on the way in just a couple of days. starting with the wind speeds, fiercest speed at the coast and mountain passes as well.
5:22 am
traveling across 152 east the pacheco pass, take it easy. hold on tight to your steering wheel if you have a high-profile vehicle you could get knocked around a little bit. by strong gusts such as come up out of nowhere sometimes. 50 degrees for the peninsula. 52 degrees on the tri-valley. getting you into this afternoon temperatures are going to be comfortable. we will be in the 60s and 70s yet again. 67 degrees is the high for today in the tri-valley. much cooler in san francisco. a cool day ahead. 60 degrees. now that we're in mid may your temperatures even in the city should be in the mid 60s but for us today, cooler than average. 71 degrees is the forecasted high. up in wine country. your weather headlines tell the story, that afternoon wind will intensify for today. keep that in mind. especially the wind-prone areas across the bay. a month's worth of rain on the way between wednesday and friday. and then as we head throughout monday that pattern will stay unsettled. let me give you an idea of the
5:23 am
timing. we bring the showers in. as we head throughout wednesday afternoon, more rain on the way for thursday. that's going to be the day you don't want to forget your umbrella. to give you a sneak peek at the weekend, temperatures look good. nice and comfortable. sunday is going to be your better day for outdoor plans. upper 60s to low 70s coming your way. and tahoe, tahoe could pick up a foot, maybe two feet of snow. let me take you down south to mammoth ski resort there. still open at this point. and, yeah, we could see one to two feet of snowfall before all is said and done from this single system. they say closing is for quitters. they're staying open. let's check on that drive. here's mike. >> coffee is for closers. that's a different movie. looking over here, fremont moves nicely. looking at the flag. it's flapping around very strong in fremon about. what christina is talking the winds. we'll show you the bay. address overview, south bay. no delays. typical overnight construction. build for the tri-valley is starting to build at dublin. not a big concern.

7.3. weaker and deeper than the last one. but you see the images. it certainly won't matter to the nepalese people whose nerves are raw. within hours of the quake more than 40 people are dead and that number is expected to rise. we'll put the two earthquakes on the top to see how close they happen today with closer to the border in tibet and centered very close to a mt. everest base camp. the climbing season was canceled after the last juan. 7.0 on april 25th was closer to kathmandu. we just got this video in to the newsroom. the earthquake triggering a landsli landslide. this is part of the problem, the damage doesn't end with the shaking. and monsoon, the equivalent of our hurricane season, is bearing down. in this video from the center of city you can see the panic as people try to get outside. soldiers carrying people out of a hospital. women carrying very young babies. one young woman said they had to get out of the hospital because the walls were slanting.
5:32 am
in another neighborhood shell shocked people poured on the streets where you can see the bricks there on the ground. one person there said the jolt felt as strong as the one last month but not as long. that one killed more than 8,000 people and left a quarter million people homeless. you can see people with cellphones desperately trying to make contact with loved ones. >> i'm waiting for my family. >> hotel police and guests evacuated into the streeths. waez saw last time people too afraid to go back into the building for fear of aftershocks. that is a valid fear. take look at the u.s. geological survey. map showing the number of strong quakes that follow the 7.3 this morning. the usgs says there have been seven earthquakes of magnitude five or higher in nepal today including the first one. as we mentioned the early reports are that 40 people are confirmed dead. that's just within this next few ho hours. the government says that count is going to continue to rise when people don't have anywhere
