11:00 am
the f-b-i set to give an update right now at 11:00, the fbi set to give an update on the deadly confrontation with the group occupying a wildlife center in oregon. we're watching that live. good morning, everyone. thank you for joining us. i'm scott mcgrew. >> and i'm kris sanchez. we are tracking new developments out of oregon as a near month-long occupation reached a boiling point. one person is dead, several other demonstrators are in custody after an apparent shootout with authorities. this is all happening near burns, oregon, specifically at a national wildlife center there. >> bob redell is in our newsroom. bob, the fbi is set to give an update any minute now. >> reporter: this is a news conference, scott and kris, that
11:01 am
will involve the fbi, the local u.s. attorney's office and the harney county sheriff. they'll speak about last night's confrontation with anti-government protesters taking place at the chamber of commerce there in oregon not far away from where this confrontation took place last night that resulted in two members being shot. one survived with a minor wound. the second, however, died. one confirmed that it was her father who was shot and killed. he was a rancher from arizona, often spoke on behalf of the protesters during the three-week armed occupation of the wildlife refuge in oregon. law enforcement also arrested nine members of the group including the bundy brothers. they are who led the protest over how federal government manages public land. yesterday the group left to spread their message in another town. along the way the fbi and oregon state police conducted a traffic stop on the group. that's when this was this
11:02 am
confrontation. five were arrested on the spot, two more nearby, an eighth in arizona and there's now a ninth. as we're speaking, i want to send it to that news conference. this looks like the special agent in charge. >> for the past month the fbi, along with our partners with the harney county sheriff's office, the oregon state police and the many other state, federal and local agencies we have been working with have had a very deliberate and measured response. we have worked diligently to bring the situation at the wildlife refuge to a peaceful end, but because this is an ongoing investigation there are many specifics we cannot talk about at this time. there are still people illegally occupying the mallier refuge at
11:03 am
this point. i will say that the armed occupiers have been given ample opportunity to leave the refuge peacefully. they have been given opportunities to negotiate. as outsiders to oregon, they have been given the opportunity to return to their families and to work through the normal legal process to air their preventigr. instead, these individuals have chosen to threaten and intimidate the america they profess to love and through criminal actions bring these consequences upon themselves. yesterday the fbi with our partners took the first steps to bring this occupation to a conclusion. we worked to ensure that we could do so peacefully and safely out of harm's way of the
11:04 am
citizens here in the county. removing the threat of danger from anybody who might be present. we continue to work to empty the refuge of those who continue to illegally occupy the refuge and remove them in the safest way possible. eight people were arrested and one man died yesterday as we attempted to take him into custody. because there is an ongoing investigation by the major crimes team on part of the oregon state police involving this process, i cannot comment on the details or on the specifics. i would, however, ask for your patience as this shooting investigation goes through this normal outside process. at the appropriate time, the medical examiner's office will
11:05 am
release the identity of the decedent and the oregon state police will then be able to address the details of the event. let me be clear. it is the actions and choices of the armed occupiers of the refuge that has led us to where we are today. they had ample opportunity to leave the refuge peacefully. and as the fbi and our partners have clearly demonstrated, actions are not without consequences. containment roadblocks are now in place around the refuge. the disruption to the good people of harney county that they have had to endure the last several months will continue for a while longer. if the people on the refuge want to leave -- >> reporter: so as you hear the special agent in charge mentioning they have shut down one of the entrances to the
11:06 am
wildlife refuge, there are still protesters holed up inside. we understand that the fbi and other law enforcement have been giving the remaining protesters an opportunity to leave. last night it has been reported that a caravan of cars carrying women left the area. >> yeah, now that there's no women and children here, the fbi can kill everybody. >> is that what you're worried will happen? >> is that what you're worried will happen? that's what i keep hearing over and over and over again. i hear peaceful resolution, and then i hear everybody asking are you worried that they're going to kill everybody. you tell me. >> reporter: we've also seen video of a backhoe that the armed protesters have put in front of one of the other entrances to this wildlife refuge in oregon. according to what we heard, they want to keep any law enforcement from trying to storm the area. so you've got our understanding two choke points. law enforcement is at one, the protesters are at the other. as you heard that special agent
11:07 am
in charge, they are asking those remaining protesters to leave. what happened yesterday with that traffic stop is what they referred to as their first step in trying to end this armed occupation that's been going on for three weeks now. of course we'll have more tonight at 5:00. in the mean time, bob redell, back to you. >> all right, bob, thank you. happening today the man accused of murdering a missing south bay man will face a judge for the first time. 28-year-old kyle myrick of san jose disappeared last week. the man on your screen is his supposed killer. even though his body has yet to be found, police say myrick was killed by a co-worker steve lebo, but lebo said he is being framed. yesterday friends and family used a drone to search lexington reservoir to find clues about the disappearance. we have new details on the crumbling cliffs along the pacifica coastline. this morning a critical meeting to try to figure out what people living in that city should do next. >> nbc bay area's stephanie
11:08 am
chuang is live in pacifica. we know how the residents are feeling, many of them have spoken out in the past few days, but what's come out of the town hall meeting? >> reporter: the congresswoman was a little bit late so they just started it. we don't know exactly what's being said right now although i do know they're talking about how to help people in this threatened area because the water can be so powerful. it's already damaged the pacifica pier already behind me. i did speak with a representative earlier who said there's no specific number in terms of funding that's coming out today. this is the start of an important discussion. drone footage shows the erosion expedited by el nino. on monday night city council members approved a state of emergency declaration and that paves the way for federal and state money that could go for repairs to the homes that have been yellow tagged. now, residents have been allowed
11:09 am
to get their belongings but not stay there and that includes michael mchenry who just moved in four months ago. i asked him just now how important today's discussion is to him and to his neighbors. >> i understand they're about to give millions of dollars to the local government. but what's important to me is the fact that i'm now homeless and i need help too. and honestly, i'm not the only person. there's at least 20 people in the building i'm at that are busy moving their stuff in and out all day long that are also affected. we're hurting. you know, the hole can wait, we can't. >> reporter: now, he's talking about the other sites of damage that the funding may go to. that includes a sinkhole and damaged sea wall which have still closed a stretch of beach boulevard by santa maria and also the pacifica pier. this area for stranger to erosion which also forced evacuations back in 2010 from the same apartments on that stretch. owners had to come up with a repair plan to avoid demolition
11:10 am
of the building which we understand is set to happen to two of those buildings. mchenry says he is flustered, you can feel it when you talk to him. he says that pg&e crews have been walking around the apartment complex but they don't tell him when they're going to turn off the power. they understand it's going to happen fairly soon and, yeah, he's just pretty emotional saying i'm essentially homeless now and that's what this means to him today. live here in pacifica, stephanie chuang, nbc bay area news. new at 11:00, san jose state has a new president. just hours ago the board of trustees appointed mary papazian to lead beginning july 1st. she replaces susan martin, who was appointed as the interim president when mohammed kiumi abruptly left to assist in the afghan government.
11:11 am
she will be san diego state's 29th president and the third woman president. if we've gotten the pronunciation wrong, it's only because she's so new. up next, super bowl city can't happen without them. a crucial piece of the big game which arrives in the bay area. plus apple gets the thumbs up to expand into san jose. more on the late-night decision by city leaders. i'm meteorologist kari hall. a lot of sunshine across the bay area, temperatures warming up. another nice one but get ready for some rain. i'll detail that coming up in the microclimate forecast.
11:12 am
11:13 am
(scott ad libs markets) scott shares in app are wn about welcome back on this wednesday morning. both the dow and the nasdaq mildly lower. importantly the fed just ended its two-day interest rate meeting with no move on interest rates, nor did we expect any. shares in apple down about 5% after the cupertino company
11:14 am
said iphone sales are slowing down. the markets really had expected this. apple stock is down significantly for the year. really this is not apple's fault. everyone who wants an iphone and who can afford one, presumably already has one. san jose city council last night approved the expansion of apple's san jose campus already planned for north first street near paypal across from the airport. apple was already renovating several buildings like this one. now it can get even bigger. sony says it's moving its video game division to california. its video game network is already based in san mateo so we think san mateo will be the home for sony video games as well. the head of security for uber says some uber drivers in north carolina have hit on a great idea to distract their drunken passengers. bop-its. if you're saying to yourself what's a bop-it, let me remind you. >> hey, do you want to play
11:15 am
bop-it? >> twist it. >> a tv commercial from 1998 looks like it's from a different century because, let's face it, it is. you have to press the right button at the right time. uber drivers in charlotte say they find it distracts drunk drivers and prevents them from bopping the drivers on the head like they are in these videos. these are people caught on uber cameras. the left was a former taco bell executive. the right was a former doctor. both have basically ruined their careers by being rude to drivers so we will watch that. can you imagine, kris, if you get into an uber and discover there's a bop-it in there, somehow you'll be so busy working that. although after a couple drinks, that might be hard. >> my husband has said toddlers sometimes behave like drunk people, you can't negotiate them, they don't understand. i think it's genius. it totally works on the toddler. >> in north carolina if you get
11:16 am
into an uber and there's a bop-it, you heard it here first. public works officials in oakland want to spread the word to residents, leave the work to them when it comes to repairing potholes on city streets. this is in response to a discovery where potholes were found filled with brick fragments. the public works department wants to remind people it's illegal for residents to take matters into their own hands. instead you're supposed to call and report the problem and then wait for the city to fix it. a report released last year found oakland's roads are among the worst in the nation. a possible crackdown on frat parties at cal. the berkeley city council discussed a proposed ordinance to limit parties to 200 people and to force the fraternities to end the parties by 10:00 at night on weekdays, at 1:00 in the morning on weekends. it also proposes banning alcohol in common areas where there are minors also living. this stems from two recent
11:17 am
incidents involving drunk students on fraternity row. one of those incidents was deadly. according to the university newspaper, "the daily cal" city council members will vote on the ordinance in two weeks. at the same time the legal age to smoke cigarettes in berkeley went up. the berkeley city council voted to move the minimum age from 18 to 21. other jurisdictions in the bay area and across the nation have been doing the same thing. locally berkeley joins unincorporated santa clara county, also healdsburg. 1,000 footballs arrived this morning straight from the wilson factory in ohio. >> this trip took three days through some stretches of snow. what a journey. the carolina panthers and the denver broncos got their team balls yesterday. about 120 apiece that they get to practice with. the footballs that arrived today
11:18 am
are strictly for the fans. >> there's nothing different, right? so the people who make these footballs every day the same effort and the way in which we make them are the same as the ones delivered to the two teams on tuesday. so they're exactly the same thing. >> the footballs will be available for peopleo buy as early as saturday when the nfl experience opens. no deflategate here, though. and how about this for a great boss. the owner. carolina panthers surprised his staff by promising to pay for everyone to go see the super bowl. everyone in the organization, from the interns to the executives will be there. the owner did the same thing last year when the panthers played in the super bowl -- or not last year, the last time the panthers played in the super bowl, which was 12 years ago. it's going to cost him a lot more this time. >> oh, what a nice gesture. well, you've got a million visitors converging on the bay area. obviously not all of them can go to the super bowl but they're
11:19 am
enjoying the party. some people are looking to rent out their homes. >> or maybe even their tree houses. here's one we found on airbnb, a cozy little spot for two built in a 150-year-old tree in burlingame. you have to order in for pizza because there's no kitchen, but it is centrally located to the festivities in san francisco and to the game itself in santa clara. it's going for $495 a night. >> somehow in the bay area that seems reasonable. if your tastes are a bit more expensive, there's this estate in los gatos hills. you can rent this 13,000 square foot living space for $150,000 a week. it has a basketball court, nine bathrooms. you do need to furnish a $20,000 security deposit. >> who has time for the pool or tennis or basketball when you're going to the game? countdown clock, the big game
11:20 am
just 11 days 4 hours away. >> and on our website we have a section dedicated to the super bowl, nbcbayarea.com. we had an interesting talk about roman numerals with my fourth grader the other day. >> he's the only one who can read roman numerals are in fourth grade. >> and why it's 50 and not l. >> let's check your weather with kari hall. >> and we are enjoying some beautiful weather. a live look now at mt. tam and we will see this a little while longer. san francisco giving us a beauty shot again today. now, our temperatures are still a little on the cool side but it's warming up with each hour that passes by with all of that sun. it's now 54 in the east bay, 56 in the south bay. as we get a closer look at the north day petaluma almost 60 degrees. in napa it's 56 and benicia at 56. hour by hour in san francisco, our temperatures will stay right
11:21 am
at about 59, maybe 60 degrees in a couple of spots but it will be mostly clear as we go into tonight as our weather stays nice and quiet. it's up to 67 degrees in gilroy today. redwood city 63 degrees, embarcadero at 61. and in napa 58, oakland 64 and livermore looking at 59 degrees. now, this will be the last sunny and dry day. we'll see the clouds starting to roll in as we head into tomorrow. maybe even a couple of spotty light showers for the north bay by tomorrow afternoon in time for the evening commute, but the rest of us staying dry until friday. but this first round of rain that moves in looks to stay farther to the north and then it works its way to the south by noon on friday. and we'll see the scattered showers off and on throughout the day. on saturday we get ready to take a break before the next weather system moves in. a look at how it looks as we go into sunday. now computer models are pushing that rain a little bit farther to the south, so we may not have
11:22 am
a soaking but in the meantime we are planning for a good soaking of anywhere up to a half of an inch, maybe higher amounts of rain for the north bay where this first round of rain comes through and lingers a little longer. if you're going to the sierra, the snowfall will be coming down and we're looking at at least 12 inches of snow as you head up 50 and then over towards south lake tahoe. we're looking at maybe a foot and a half of snow. look at the weekend forecast. we're going to take the rain out of the forecast, only a very slight chance on saturday, but it will be chilly. highs only reaching into the upper 50s and even cooler on sunday with a high of 56 degrees on the peninsula. once again, we'll have some scattered showers moving around the bay area. we'll take another look at this forecast coming up a little bit later. scott and kris. >> thank you very much, kari. up next at 11:00, a turn of events. the rescuer turns to the

meteorologist kari hall. we have some blue sky behind you. >> yeah, it's a beautiful day. don't get too used to this, we've had it all week long. you know the weather is going to change before the weekend. as we take a live look now from mt. hamilton, we see those clear skies today. once again we'll have some clouds moving in and the rain won't be far behind. it's now 55 degrees in san francisco, 57 in the peninsula. as we drop in on the east bay, we do have a couple of spots that have made it up to 60 like newark, dublin is 57 and brentwood at 55. we're at 53 degrees now in the north bay, so as we go through the rest of the afternoon, a lot of sunshine in the south bay. a few more clouds moving in tonight, but our high temperatures reaching into the mid-60s and then for tonight mostly clear skies and lows dropping back into the 50s. now, we're up to almost 70 degrees tomorrow, so we'll have one more warm day, but i think there will be a few more clouds in the mix. and then on friday, that's when the rain comes in. our temperatures will be cooling
11:48 am
off a few degrees all across the board and highs reaching into the upper 50s in the north bay on friday and also in the east shore we're up to 61 degrees. 59 in the tri-valley. this is the way we paint the picture as we get a view of what the radar could look like. by tomorrow during the evening commute, we could have some rain moving into the north bay, but the rest of the bay area seeing those clouds rolling in. as we go into thursday night and friday, it's still raining in the north bay. while we have yet to see it south of san francisco, there we are at lunchtime on friday, we see some more scattered showers moving all across the bay area. into the evening on friday, it's still raining, but it's very hit or miss and then the rain gives us a break for a little while throughout the day on saturday, but we'll still have clouds lingering and it will be cool. heading into sunday we'll have another weather system moving in that could bring in some rain, especially for the south bay. but the models are pushing that low farther to the south.
11:49 am
we'll see how that all pans out, but it looks like at least we will have some scattered rain between saturday morning and saturday evening. and the rain outlook is giving us less and less with each run, so at this point it looks like we could have up to a half of an inch of rain. then the farther north you go, there will be some heavier rainfall totals. over in the sierra, we are going to get another good amount of snow coming down, but our temperatures the past few days there have been very warm, reaching into the upper 40s to lower 50s. well, it will be cooling off heading into the weekend, staying below freezing as that snow comes down and we're looking at in some of the higher elevations anywhere from a foot, maybe a foot and a half. a look at the weekend forecast. it will be cooling off. a lot of outdoor events going on. maybe you're planning to go to super bowl city. it will be a mixture of sun and clouds and you'll probably be wearing a heavy jacket all day long and then you'll need rain jackets on sunday with some scattered showers moving through. it looks like that cool weather kind of sticks around for a
