5:01 am
you may not need it this morning, but this afternoon we'll see showers and storms firing up. there is this weak system that's producing thunderstorms over the sierra. we may see that rotate into the bay area later on today. highs expected to top out at 63 in the peninsula. san francisco at 63. we'll talk more about that rain and it continues tomorrow as well as saturday. that's coming up in the microclimate forecast. let's get a view of bridges for your drive. >> san mateo bridge. we have a couple of crashes. there's not a lot of slowing. we'll give you more details on 92. i want to talk about the south bay. vta lines stopped right here at the component station because of the activity. talking about the breaking news

5:03 am
down peacefully. sheriff's department says they don't believe he is armed, but do believe he is unstable. the work to negotiate with him to try to get him down safely continues. there is a big response out here. the sheriff's department is in charge of rail safety. san jose police department offering services, as well. sheriff's department spokesman tells us again that the man went up around 1:20 this morning and has not come down since. we don't know whether or not that man climbed up while the train was moving. the train has stopped now. power was cut off. this is going to impact the commute both on vta and in your car. as more people might ditch mass transit today to try to get to work in their own vehicle. >> we are working on getting a bus bridge, that is a substitute bus service that will mirror the light rail. >> the power was cut to the
5:04 am
tracks and the train stopped no train traffic going through this area. >> the trains were supposed to start running at 4:00 this morning. clearly, that didn't happen. though the bus bridges are in place, it does not completely replace the ease of using the light rail train. again that man is still on top of that train. folks are negotiating with him up there. i did look up some of the training santa clara department gets and many have 40 hours of crisis intervention training dealing with situations like this one. thank you very much. 5:04. more breaking news in vallejo. fire crews at the scene of an early morning house fair. >> this starting after 1:00 a.m.

5:06 am
the chase ended here at the cable car turnaround. chp says that is where it tried to pull over an infinity sedan before midnight for a license plate infraction. the driver took off, missing a cable car and crashing in this turnaround area. there was visible damage on the driver's side door. four people inside tried to run but with the help of sfpd, officers were able to arrest three of the four people. one person did get away. there has been no active search for that person. what is strange is what police found around, egg cartons around and under the car and eggs on the roof of one nearby car. what is unclear is how the eggs ended up there and whether the people were doing anything with the eggs before. they might have been egging cars but that is unconfirmed by chp. san francisco police are

5:10 am
the community, give back to the community, here and back home. >> that's nice. >> not talking about how many homes we can buy or cars but how many we can help. the odds of winning the top prize are pretty much impossible. is that fair to say? >> kari hall made a good observation, you have a better chance getting hit by lightning today than winning. >> but you are saying there is a chance. you do have a better chance of being struck by lightning today. we have scattered rain and storms moving through the bay area. grab the umbrella before you head out. we not going to see the rain for the next several hours. our temperatures will hold steady in the mid 60s. rising up to 71 in the tri-valley. 70 in the south bay.

5:32 am
spokeswoman for that department. this man is lucky he did not get hit by that train and did not get shocked or electrocuted as he climbed up on top. it was the quick action of the operator that was the difference between life and death. he is still on top of that train and considered unarmed at this point. negotiations continue to try to get him down peacefully. he climbed up on top of that train after walking along the tracks. the operator saw him on the tracks, was able to stop the train before hitting him. once he saw the man trying to scramble on top of the train, he called immediately and had the power disabled so the man would not be shocked. a sheriff's spokesman said they have been negotiating with that man who is considered unarmed but unstable. they've been working with him since 1:20 this morning trying to get him down. we did see him standing up and he was shirtless at that point.
5:33 am
then he was wrapped up in some blanket the sheriff's department handed to him. again this situation is ongoing. this will have a major impact on mass transit through the north first street corridor. >> we are working on getting a bus bridge. that is a substitute bus service that will mirror the light rail. >> the power was cut to the tracks. the train is stopped. there is no service through this component station. it's not a busy station but is a bad spot to have a train stopped because it means vta cannot get any train north of this area. there are so many tech companies in the north first street corridor. if you work at one of those tech businesses, you will have to reroute via a bus bridge with vta or drive. even if you don't work over here but take 87 to 101, your commute
5:34 am
will be impacted. the man is considered unarmed, but unstable. i did look up the crisis intervention training for the sheri sheriff's department. it is standard for all officers to have 40 hours to deal with this type of situation. kris sanchez, today in the bay. 5:34, more breaking news this morning out of vallejo. a family left without a place to stay. it comes after a house burst into flames after carl avenue. it happened about 1:00 this morning. >> rob redell joining us live from where it all happened. >> reporter: this child was taken to the hospital. the burns are first and second degree, they consider the

5:38 am
let's look at the rain timeline. it shows storms firing up farther off to the east of us and rolling into the higher terrain of the bay area and eventually moving into some more populated parts like the south bay as well as east bay and into the north bay. some of these storms could produce heavy downpours, lightning and small hail. i'll detail that and a chance of that once again tomorrow coming up in the microclimate forecast. we'll show fremont 880. picking up good volume over the last ten minutes. no slowing for south 880 by the truck scales. actually coming down from hayward no major problems. >> we'll get a look at the south

5:43 am
us all to come together and he's starting to see that already. mitch mcconnell, top republican here on capitol hill, haley barbour, john mccain, they are saying they are going to back ç trump. then you've got bush president saying they are going to stay out of this. they are not endorsing trump. neither is the governor of massachusetts who has problem with things trump said about women and muslims. he's got community building to do within the party. trump put together million more people than any other candidate has. he doesn't think that will be a big problem. what he is focused on is hillary clinton who he expected to compete against in the fall. clinton meantime is saying that trump has been negative, aggressive, bullying, using her words here she describes him as a loose cannon. she said loose cannons are apt to misfire. you can see the sparks are already starting to fly between those two, even with bernie
5:44 am
sanders still out there, still campaigning, he just set up a kentucky office. >> bernie hanging on. >> we'll see what happens here. when you talk about hillary clinton and donald trump and their high unfavorable ratings, do you think this will be one of the most negative we've seen in recent history? >> it's interesting on both sides. you've got who don't like donald trump but they are voting for him. the same thing on the other side with hillary clinton. high negatives on both sides. you've got a lot of voters wringing their hands. we've heard it. people frustrated with the choices they had this year. some people feel they are picking the lesser of two evils. >> for a big position. thank you very much. the debate should be good. >> debates will be great. then there is the debate about the role of california. we are saying this state will decide everything. now the question is will republican voters come out and vote in the june 7th primary? >> state republican leaders are
5:45 am
hoping for a big turnout. they say there are important state races that still need to be decided. >> it might have more impact in swing areas of the state. parts of southern california where there may be close races. >> it may not matter in the overwhelmingly democratic bay area. san francisco only 8% of voters are registered republican. political experts also say many republicans may have already voted by mail. to a state largely purple, north carolina, where republican leaders there are rallying against a new federal warning. the justice department says the state's new law that limits protections for the lgbtq community violates the federal civil rights act. a mistake could lose hundreds of millions of dollars in federal school funding. north carolina's governor says that warning is a broad overreach of federal authority. a plane full of passengers took off on san jose on a notable flight path. the first nonstop from sjc to

5:47 am
when elon musk is not launching rockets, he's building cars. >> tesla may ask for more money to meet demand. >> it may not be enough money there. tesla has huge expenses as it builds these new assembly lines. capital expenditures. tesla's cap-ex is high enough. tesla made fewer, not more, but fewer cars than planned. that's an important nugget to think about when you hear musk saying he wants to increase production ten times by 2018. wall street taking a look at startling turnaround in lay-offs. this time last week i was telling you first-time jobless claims were the lowest since the 1970s. they spiked this week, highest in seven years. go figure. the big jobs number is tomorrow. that's when we get the

5:51 am
