tv   Today in the Bay  NBC  January 14, 2016 6:00am-7:01am PST

6:00 am
and the weekend, it looks wet, we'll talk about that coming up in a little bit. let's talk to mike and see how the morning commute is shaping up. >> great morning as far as drivers are concerned. here is the maze and the berkeley curve. look at that, cars moving very smoothly. no backup. we'll show you the map. backup at the bay bridge toll plaza and the metering lights west grand to the metering lights because that is the pattern. no problem for the east shore freeway. as anthony mentioned, patches of fog in the north and low clouds. that could be an yissue as you travel through the area. little build from 92 down into union city and not a major concern over there for nimitz. dublin interchange, very easy drive. southbound 101 slows a bit at 680 and that's about it. the peninsula, as usual, very clear right now. back to you. as usual, we're all back at work morning but at least three people waking up a whole lot richer this morning. >> three states including here in california sold winning tickets in last night's $1.6 billion powerball jackpot.
6:01 am
>> chino hills! che chino hills! >> quite the celebration down there where dozens of people showed up just to be a part of history. that 7-eleven sold one of those winning tickets. the other two winners matching all six numbers were sold in tennessee and florida. >> boy, some lucky people there. so, in case you're curious. let's take a look at the numbers. 4, 8, 19, 27, 34 and the big powerball was 10. we have team coverage from here in the bay area where there was some luck. but we begin with "today in the bay" jennifer bjorkland at that chino hills 7-eleven. they're still chanting out there this morning, jen? >> they're not chanting any more. but my head is just still kind of ringing from all the excitement over night and here's the big headline jackpot and you can see that store clerk right over here is the hero. he was the hero of the evening.
6:02 am
really, really a lot of excitement here in this store. you can feel it in the air. you still can when you walk in and this morning everybody is so, so happy for this still mystery winner who initially was believed could be the soul winner of this $1.56 billion jackpot. we found out a few more hours went by last night that there were two other winners. one in florida, one in tennessee winning tickets, that is. could be groups of people. who knows, split more than three ways. for now we have three big winners and 12 other winners who probably will get somewhere between $500,000 to $1.2 million for getting five of the ixsix numbers right. that is exciting news. if you didn't win and you're sad, here's something to think about. you know, half of thet sales money goes to the jackpot. another 10% goes to
6:03 am
administrative costs but then 40% goes towards our schools. it's not a lot, i mean, this game was $121 million from just this draw alone going to our schools. about 1% of california school budget. so, something to think about. you know, a little bit of money for the schools. but, you know, not a huge jackpot for any of us. >> no, everybody wants to dream just a little bit, right, jen? >> yeah, sure. >> all right. jennifer, thanks. >> absolutely. >> now, she mentioned the five out of six. there are no big jackpot winners here in the bay area. some of the tickets in the bay area did match five out of six. >> kris sanchez live in san jose. the bay area always seems to get a little lucky. >> yeah, a little lucky, although i will say that it was not me and that's why i'm very glad that i walked out nicely from work yesterday saying see you tomorrow, not like see you never. five of the six winning numbers, we don't know what that's worth
6:04 am
yet because the california lottery hasn't said whether the folks who bought those tickets around the bay area are rich or filthy rich. we did meet all kinds of folks, though, with powerball fever around the bay area in the last few days. one expectant mom rubbing her ticket on her belly for good luck and some folks share the plans that they had to spend the winning and other people told us how they would quit their jobs. hopefully did keep it nice at work because as far as we can tell, they will be on the job today. we didn't meet any of these folks at the four bay area retailers that sold those winning tickets matching five of the six numbers. in santa rosa, the larks field and in cloverdale the quik stop sold a ticket. in santa cruz, a chevron station on the 400 block of so cal avenue. and in vaccaville the 7-eleven sold a lucky ticket. we'll put the full addresses up. check them out nbcbayarea.com.
6:05 am
really perhaps the silver lining of all of this powerball fever and the drawing being over is that the next jackpot actually si fits on the sign, again, because it is $40 million for saturday. maybe you are still feeling lucky? i don't know. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> maybe you won a couple bucks getting one of the numbers and you can roll it over. much more powerball coverage throughout the morning. for updates, to our website nbcbayarea.com or download our free ap or from google play. new this morning a horrific end to a traffic stop in the east bay. about 12:30 this morning alameda county sheriff deputies pulled over a reported stolen car on highway 238. before deputies could walk up to that car the driver ran off and hopped a fence and either jumped or fell to his death. he landed 20 fealt below in of all places the san lorenzo pioneer cemetery where he died. the passenger in the stolen car

6:08 am
propaganda. the attorney's claim led to the death of a florida man in jordan. he died in an attack isis took credit for. one legal experts has his doubts about the case. >> recklessness akin to giving a loaded gun to a child, which is the exact framing that one federal judge did here in a similar case is going to have to be shown. >> twitter says the suit has no merit and issued this statement. "we have teams around the world actively investigating reports of rule violations identifying violating conduct partnering with organizations countering extremist content online and working with law enforcement entities when appropriate." the fremont man accused of traveling to the middle east to join a terrorist group is due in court this afternoon. 22-year-old adam faces charges of attempting to provide materials to help a terrorist organization. federal agents arrested him back

6:37 am
negligent but it was reckless. >> to giving a loaded gun to a child, which is the exact framing that one federal judge did here in a similar case. >> now, this is twitter's response. "we have teams around the world actively investigating reports of rule violations, identifyingilating conduct, partnering with organizations, countering extremist content online and working with law enforcement entities when appropriate." now government and people request that twitter take down content and accounts quite a bit. according to twiterse's transparency report the first half of last year it complied with 42% of more than 1,000 of those requests from around the world. live here in our san francisco newsroom, stephanie chuang "today in the bay." >> thanks a lot. let's check your weather. anthony has been watching that satellite radar. >> things starting to get more active across the northern part of the state. you can see the rain starting to fall across the extreme northern

part of california. but we will eventually see the rain across the bay area later on this afternoon. san francisco and the north bay is where we're expecting it once the sun will be up. but once the sun goes down, east bay, peninsula, south bay is when we'll see the showers once the sunshiet hits. temperatures are going to be mild today, close to 60 degrees. here's our first storm system and the next one moves in for saturday and another one right behind that one is going to move in as we head towards sunday night into monday. let's time out this first storm system for you and you'll notice the clouds starting to spill in across the bay. high, thin clouds and once the sun comes up we'll see some sunshine and north bay, that's when you'll see the showers first. this is around 1:00 and then san francisco the east bay and the peninsula will see the showers we head towards rush hour and really right in the heart of the evening rush hour is when we're expecting the heaviest of rain around 5:00, 6:00. widespread rain for the entire bay area and that will continue until midnight and then things will start to spread out and see
6:39 am
some fun on some sun once we get to tomorrow morning. half an inch and more across parts of the north bay and san francisco, oakland and maybe 0.25 to 0.50 but the farther south you go, 0.25 or less. winter weather advisory in effect for today into tonight. expecting another four to eight inches at lake level and another foot across 7,000 feet and above. we'll talk about that weekend storm system headed our way coming up in about ten minutes. right now let's talk to mike and see how it's looking on those roads. mike? >> we're talking about the fact that we have not seen the full restoration of the commute and at least the volume. that doesn't happen until the mlk holiday. we'll watch that next week. the build 280 approaching 880 and a slower drive and then slowing still from the bottom of the screen. now, probably behind these buildings and trees somewhere, but i couldn't see it from the camera shot. as we look at the map, weal talk about that crash north 280 just past that shot around winchester. still reportedly a crash there and maybe a distraction for folks just as we see the build
6:40 am
there. 85, 87, 101 your usual pattern now kicking in for san jose and kicking into the rest of the silicon valley. a nice, easy drive for the tri-valley. a crash has not caused a major slowing. it's slowing just past that scene. over here that crash at a street just cleared. you just saw it clear from the roadway. southbound the chp says it's not a problem and you see that from the pattern. a slower drive over to the peninsula. the bay bridge has the metering lights with you waiting there. little fog north of novato might be a factor there. so far speeds are just fine. 101 through palo alto. a live camera at university and picking up the camera northbound with the taillights and southbound with the headlights. back you. happening today, the valley transportation authority publicly unveiled its flex on demand service which right now had been a pilot program covering a three-mile radius around the light rail station in san jose. users can ord oer shuttle
