6:35 am
lines. tens of thousands without water and likely will be that way for the next several days. that's the latest live here in columbia, i'm jay gray, back to you. >> state of emergency, no question. thank you very much. in flash flooding the saying goes turn around, don't drown. this incident proves that sound advice. driver's pickup truck was swept away by the raging flood waters in south carolina. you see it just movingidally in the water. the driver of the truck and a good samaritan who tried to help out both had to be rescued themselv themselves. everyone involved in that incident was able to survive. it is 6:35. it's news loved ones were hoping not to hear. for 33 most american crew members aboard a cargo ship lost at sea near the bahamas. nbc is reporting search and rescue crews now believe a container ship caught last week sank to the bottom of the ocean. the coast guard will release new

6:37 am
officer, he tried to back up and escape, but, instead, rammed into another responding squad car. that officer who took him into custody. we just spoke with a woman who lives down the street who win witnessed some of what happened last night. >> help me! that's all i heard. officer, somebody outside! >> again, that officer is in stable condition. police also took into custody two other men for their possible involvement in last night's crime. reporting live here in san francisco, bob redell "today bay." >> having to go back to the scene of a horrific crime a shooting in oregon that we have been following. students and staff in roseburg will be back on the community campus for the first time since the gunman killed nine people. >> so hard for so many people. kris sanchez joins us now with more on how that community continues to just try to move forward. >> well, today those surviving students and members will go
6:38 am
back to their classrooms, but there won't be any learning today. instead, they will gather their things and have the opportunity to get counseling and financial aid. the first day of class won't happen for another week. the weekend was largely spent in contemplation fund-raising the moments of silence and at a local church they gathered to pray for victims of the massacre. that pastor, his daughter was among the survivors. she survived by playing dead. at a nearby seventh day adventist church they mourned this woman who did survive. she was a single mother who was working towards her business degree. >> she did stand up and say, i am a christian knowing that she would be shot. >> over the weekend, we also learned that the gunman christopher harper mercer owned 14 guns. some found at the apartment he share would his mother and on the day of the shooting officers arrived on scene five minutes
6:39 am
after that 911 call, the first one. there was a shootout with officers. we knew that then. but over the weekend we learned the gunman shot himself. he allegedly gave one student a note and told him he would be the lucky one to live in order to deliver his information in the backpack to police. the sheriff has not released details on that. we can we can tell you that two of the survivors remain in the hospital and both are expected to live. one is and the other is a 16-year-old girl who finished high school early and was excited to be at college studying nursing. sam? >> in a moment of crisis, you find people with incredible bravery. new details and new questions about the safety of the bay bridge. the lead designer is warning that a cable, which holds up the eastern span, could be damaged by leaks. this is a different problem, by the way, from the rods at the base of the tower. caltrans has been working on
6:40 am
fishing th fixing that issue. the anchors of the cable are left exposed to the elements and if water gets to them, they could corrode and fail. caltrans acknowledges that water has been flowing into the two ancho anchors. no word on how officials plan to deal with those leaks. nice mild start, but a warm up by the end of the week. let's check in with kari. >> wish we could get some rain in here. we did have a little bit over the weekend for the north bay and the rest of the bay area stayed dry. we're feeling some cooler temperatures now in the mid-50s for most of us as you head out the door. light jacket for now and then this afternoon you'll be peeling it off as our temperatures warm upp and burlingga burlinggame a fairfield and oakland topping out at 76. 79 degrees today in pleasanton. it will be heating up heading
