6:15 am
house. apple is concerned about the xi visit because of the tone president trump is striking ahead of that visit. president trump, as you well know, has threatened to slap huge tariffs on products made in china. thursday, our president tweeted the meeting next week with china will be a very difficult one in that we can no longer have massive trade deficits and job losses. american companies must be prepared to look at other alternatives. iphones, of course, are made in china. what's mysterious is what does the president mean about alternatives? does he mean bringing the manufacturer back to america or not manufacturing them in china? we'll find out more next week. the white house is still reeling over news that michael flynn will testify in exchange for immunity from prosecution. we'll take a closer look at that in half an hour. in the meantime, wall street is

6:20 am
next several days, expect it to stay in the upper 60s to low 7 o 70s. wind is relaxing tomorrow. up to 79 degrees. wouldn't be surprised if a few spots hit 80. that will carry us into early next week. and now mike is updating us what is going on at the san mateo bridge. that's right. let me take you right out there and get the live shot. you can see the slowing on this bag map. we have the backup. along that flat section, that looks horrible but relief because the issue has been cleared. we're talking about a slower drive. 23 minutes across that area. dumbarton bridge is a much better option. recovery for 92. 84 is the much better route.

all right. it turns out that being in front of a screen all day can cause physical pain, even this kind of a screen. phones attached to your hands. experts seeing more and more patients with injuries related to electronics. here's how. one of the most common is technique. it's the problem caused by looking down at your phone or whatever device you're using. lifting your phone to eye level can help prevent those problems. avoid using the same hand or finger to type. >> switch it back and ford. i advocate for people to use two hands. >> bad posture is contributing to the problem. make sure you keep your feet flat on the floor and remember to stand up frequently, laura. >> our modern day problems here, sam. it's 6:24 right now. nbc bay area responds to a lot of problems out there. in fact, we've had about 5,000 in total.

i'm laura garcia-cannon. >> and i'm sam brock. >> you pop right out of bed on friday, don't you? >> yes. it's the end of the week. we have an awesome weekend on the way. it will be easier to get up and moving, right? it's cool as we step out and those winds are kicking up. it's 53 degrees in livermore and in san jose. 54 in oakland. 56 in san francisco. 46 in santa rosa. a little cool to start as some of the kids have school today. some of them don't because of cesar chavez day. by the end of the day, hold on to the homework because it will be very chilly and very warm and windy. we'll talk about what to expect as we head into the weekend as the winds calm down but mike has a very unpleasant look at the san mateo bridge. >> especially considering it's friday where we typically see lighter traffic.
6:31 am
we're just starting to see recovery. a slow drive across the flat section for highway 92 westbound. let's look at your map. a disabled vehicle ran out of gas. everything else, look how light it is. use the dumbarton bridge. again, recovery of the flat section is the last to see it. it ripples back from the high rise. if you're traveling north, that might be an alternate as well. >> thank you, mike. it's 6:31. new this morning, an early-morning fire breaking out at a duplex in san jose. firefighters still at the scene this morning. monitoring some of those hot spots. >> kris sanchez is live at the scene with more on what happened. we see some of the furniture behind you, kris. people were displaced? >> reporter: yeah. three people cannot come home anymore. as you mentioned, a lot of the
6:32 am
belongings are right here curbside. thiel they will be trying to find out what is next. crews were cutting plywood sheets to keep people out. that is after firefighters were able to leave the scene because they were finished with watching hot spots. some of the folks living nearby, not in the duplex itself, had to be evacuated as a precaution. the fire fight lasted about half an hour and when it was over, both units were damaged. firefighters were on the scene for a while to make sure that the hot spots didn't flare-up. this is 280 to the north, happy hollow to the southeast, to give you a perspective of where we are. the good news is, though, no one was hurt. as these folks try to pick up the pieces, fire investigator also try to pinpoint the cause. kris sanchez, "today in the

6:35 am
white and about 6 feet tall and he appears to be driving a 2003 toyota camera with a sticker on the driver's side of the window. the pictures are poor quality but they hope it might trigger some leads. back here live, you can see where the sun is rising and over in that area along the park, we just saw a few minutes ago one student walking across the park. so clearly, this is a very busy park and considering that one of these incidents happened at 2:30 when school gets out, police are very concerned. they are hoping if you have any information, you call the daly city police department. reporting live in daily city, sharon kutsuda, "today in the bay". a suspect has been arrested in connection with a fire in half moon bay not far from downtown. sheriffs say gilbert flores, a homeless man, intentionally set that fire.

suspects who robbed a couple in their driveway in morago. >> one guy, they were grabbing her purse. she held onto her purse. she was really frightened. >> so far, no information on the suspects. a similar robbery happened in nearby orinda when a woman in her 70s was shot but she survived. the antolin murder industrial takes a day off. he's accused of killing sierra lamar. defense lawyers have taken a major step in trying to poke holes in the evidence. the defense has been claiming that a strand of lamar's hair found on garcia's car was planted. they showed two photos which
6:46 am
their expert said showed no hair. then the defense showed another photo taken months later which showed hair. prosecutors say the hair was invisible because of the kind of came ra lens being used. hillary clinton will be honoring women in washington, d.c., today. it's the annual hillary clinton's annual award show at georgetown university. she's also expected to speak on the role women can play in international to international politics and peace-building efforts. and here we are on day 71. >> scott, things have taken a serious turn. >> very serious. a historic moment in the white house which has already had historic moments, sam. one of the former insiders may soon be one of the biggest opponents. michael flynn, as you well know, was national security adviser and he's willing to testify about the russian connection in
6:47 am
exchange for immunity. flynn was the fellow who got caught lying about his meetings with russia and was fired after the fbi alerted the white house about those lies making him the shortest serving national security adviser since that position was invented. this story is really full of irony because flynn was so vocal about attacking hillary clinton during the campaign alleging she had committed crimes. here he is at the republican national convention. >> lock her up. that's right. yep, that's right. if i did a tenth of what she did, i would be in jail today. >> now, flynn's defenders are quick to point out, just because somebody asks for immunity doesn't mean they're guilty. president trump tweeted this morning, "mike flynn should ask for immunity in that this is a
6:48 am
witch hunt by media and democrats of historic portion." of course, the hunt is led by the republicans in the house and senate. they are both in charge of the house and the senate intelligence committees. there's also an investigation by the fbi. the fbi director pointing out wednesday, he's not on anybody's side. as for that idea that if you're asking for immunity it doesn't mean you're guilty, that's fair. though, again, here's mike flynn himself talking about hillary clinton again on "meet the press" last year. >> they have been given immunity to include her former chief of staff. when you're given immunity, that means you've probably committed a crime. >> important point, flynn has asked for immunity but nobody has granted it. the two congressional investigations and the fbi had all face them to questions without immunity but he has the option of taking the fifth. >> interesting to hear him in his own words.
6:49 am
scott would like to hear from you. see his twitter handle right there on your screen, @scottmcgrew. a new thrilling roller coaster is opening up tomorrow at california's great america. >> what doesn't want to test out the patariot. it's the first floorless roller coaster. this is a preview of the exhilarating experience of the patriot. the park is hosting media day and the mayor will announce the approval for the park to create larger rides. >> you either like roller coasters or you don't. we'll see. everybody loves a little bit of basketball. this is the women's final four. stanford hoping for a win. they are taking on south carolina tonight. the huskies have won 111 straight games. whether a record. they are hoping to win their fifth straight ncaa title.
