5:00 am
eastbound coming down the decline, and the flashing lights we saw mostly cleared as folks are heading into oakland. out on the map, not a lot of slowing on the speed sensors there. no problems getting off the bay bridge toll plaza and heading westbound into the city. that's the bulk of the morning commute which is just getting started. a smooth drive for the rest of the sensors including san leandro. you had earlier activity, we were very concerned about that. still following that. >> new this morning that we're covering an early-morning crash, killed one man and blocked northbound laneoffs 880 in san leandro. it all started when a ford fusion hit a honda with enough force to send it into the center divide. a buick struck the honda, causing it to side swipe a big rig. the honda driver died at the scene, the buick driver was taken to the hospital. all lanes are just reopened after 4:00 a.m. >> 5:00 on the dot right now and a very busy morning already for san jose police who are investigating an overnight

5:02 am
laura. yes, where we're standing now, justin herman plaza in san francisco, that's where that rally, the immigrants rally, will take place later this morning. it will focus on workers right, and an added emphasis as far as rights go for undocumented immigrants. let's pull up a list of all of the events, but i want to focus on two in particular getting a lot of attention. that's the one at 8:00 a.m., a protest at immigrations customs enforcement building. that's a rally and street festival in front of the building. that rally bringing attention to current issues ranging from deportation to policies pushed by the current trump administration. then at 11:00 a.m., that's where we're standing, the rally and march at justin herman plaza, a day without immigrants rally. the focus is to show solidarity with undocumented immigrant workers and all workers in different communities who feel they're under attack. of course, as with most rallies in san francisco, we can expect to see a big police presence in
5:03 am
different areas of the city. now, with this event at justin herman plaza, it will lead to a march that will go towards city hall that will take place at 2:00 p.m. pete suratos for today in the bay. >> thanks so much. >> a day of action across the bay area. here's a list of some of the other may day rallies taking place. of course, san francisco, as we mentioned, san jose and oakland, expected to be the largest. >> demonstrations also taking place in mountain view, morgan hill, and concord. there's a full list there of all of those events. you can find more information on our website, nbcbayarea.com. going to be difficult to get help right now at sunnyvale city hall today. hundreds of city workers striking. that started at midnight. >> kris sanchez joins us live from city hall. who's on strike this morning and how do we expect this to affect city business? >> reporter: well, let's start by saying that fire and police and other critical city services will be unaffected by the strike. but at one minute after noon,
5:04 am
all of the city's unionized employees will walk off the job in a strike, trying to get the contract that they say that they deserve. now, all of the union employees will walk off around noon time. 400 people in all, in all city departments except for emergency and garbage. the union leader says what employees want is fair given the fact they haven't had a raise in five years, but the mayor says the city can't afford more than what's on the table. >> mainly, we have not had a pay increase in overfive years. we have been without a contract now for two years. we have been at the table for two years. and we reached a stalemate and there's no more on the table is what the city says. it's not acceptable. >> now, if you live or work in sunnyvale, go to nbcbayarea.com to link to the latest on the strike. we'll connect you with the city there. also coming up at 6:00, i'll show you the other departments that will be affected by the walkout of 400 or so employees.
5:05 am
in sunnyvale, kris sanchez, today in the bay. >> thanks so much. it's 5:04. we are following a developing story. a woman is dead, seven injured following a mass shooting at a san diego pool party. it happened yesterday in san diego's universal city neighborhood. a group of adults was at a poolside birthday party. the shooter identified as 49-year-old peter solis, was drinking a beer at the pool before he opened fire. he killed one woman and injured six others. one man broke his arm just trying to run away. police say the party turned into chaos. >> from the screams you could hear that somebody or multiple people were hit. a lot of screaming. and i could see everybody on the balcony yelling to just ducking down for cover. >> officers shot and killed solis, and then when he pointed his gun at them. no word yet on a motive. 5:05. crisis averted for the time being. a deal to fund the government through september has been reached, happening late last night. that avoids a government
5:06 am
shutdown. congressional negotiators have been working on this through the night. president trump backed down on asking for money to build a border wall, but he demanded billions of dollars for border security. he asked for $3 billion. this would give him $1.5 billion for border security. democrats also standing against funding cuts for so-called sanctuary cities. this includes an additional $12 billion in defense spending. that's less than the original amount asked, $54 billion by trump. >> happening in san francisco, tackling human trafficking. a discussion is scheduled for 8:00. the police chief and others will join in. it's part of the second annual organized crime conference hosted with the support of interpol by the state department diplomatic security service. happening at the federal reserve bank of san francisco. >> check before your burn. calfire requires a permit for
5:07 am
open burning in certain areas. during times of the air with high fire danger, burning vegetation at homes is not safe. those permits will be needed in santa clara, sonoma, and napa county. >> the merced river in yosemite national park expected to go a foot over its banks in a few day. the incredibly wet winter brought the most rain and snow ever to the northern sierras. now with warmer temperatures and snow melting. forecasters say the merced river will swell over its banks by wednesday. it's 5:07. i have a feeling we'll see a lot of those rivers flooding near the sierra and flowing out of the sierra. as we take a live look outside at oakland, it's 55 degrees. already busy on this monday morning on the roadways. let me take you through the day as we look at the planner. we'll be at 59 degrees at 8:00, and lunch time, you want to take it outside. it will be in the mid 70s. a very warm afternoon. as you get ready to head home
5:08 am
from work, in the low 80s, and temperatures dropping off the 60s by 8:00 tonight. the next few days are going to feel like summer. we'll talk about that and i'll have a look at the temperature trend for palo alto in five minutes. mike has a note for transit riders. >> indeed. the roadways, moving very well. no problems on the speed sensors aside from a little slowing out of the altamont and a fender bender on the shoulder. the note, may day march. san francisco and san jose have may day marches and vta announced they will have reroutes. check the website for more information on what they expect to be impacted. the transit expected to be impacted in oakland. be careful for everybody out there. right now, though, an easy drive down the east shore freeway. just 15 minutes from highway 4 to the bay bridge. no backup at the toll plaza. >> it's 5:08. how the state's levees could be

5:11 am
it's 5:11 on this monday morning. we start out with clear skies and mild temperatures as we get a live look at palo alto. here's 101. as we go through today, the temperatures start out nice and comfortable. whatever you have to do, do it early, like going for a jog or
5:12 am
running errands. this afternoon, temperatures making it into the low 80s today. definitely some pool weather. we'll have that report in the forecast in about five minutes. >> in the tri-valley, definitely going to see the temperatures kari is talking about as well. looking at a mild slowdown for the top number. 24 minutes, grant line road to 680. >> thank you, kari and mike. >> it is 5:12 on your monday. they may be out of sight but should not be out of mund. our investigative unit has discovered a serious threat exists to california's levees that could put our drinking water in risk. >> we have a preview of tonight's story. >> sea erosion, earthquakes and road are posing a threat to california's levee system. good morning. according to this latest report put out by the state of california, about half of all the levees that protect california's cities from major flooding do not meet modern
5:13 am
standards. if a levee were to break in the wrong place, it could be catastrophic for all of us here in the bay area. we wanted to see the problem first-hand, so we went out with officials from the state department of water resources to take a tour of the most vulnerable levees. a levee failure there could destroy our roads, knock out our electrical grid, and contaminate ouring water supply, even threaten the infrastructure that carries drinking water here to the bay area and to southern california. >> a loss of revenue out here in the delta could lead to disruption of the water supply services elsewhere in the state that could be measured in months and years. >> this is serious stuff. >> very serious. this is why we take seriously the maintenance and the improvement of the levees out here. we have to protect them so that we can actually protect the drinking water supplies for millions of californians. >> coming up tonight at 11:00, we investigate the challenges facing california's levee
5:14 am
system. and we explore exactly what the state plans to do about it. that's tonight at 11:00. we'll see you then. >> thank you very much, steve. if you have a tip for our investigative unit, give us a call. 888-996-tips or send an e-mail to the unit at nbcbayarea.com. >> shrouded in secrecy, just a short time ago, spacex launching a rocket. that's about all we know. >> this was a secret mission. >> a classified mission for the national reconnaissance office. i think we can say a lot of confidence we are talking about a spy satellite. it was supposed to blast off sunday, but the launch was delayed literally at the last minute, so it launched this morning. this is a big achievement for spacex because this is the first classified mission it's performed for the nro. president trump planning a new summit of tech leaders, the tech blog axiose was the first to report it. it will be called the american
5:15 am
technology council and will be led by jared kushner who is also in charge of bringing peace between israel and palestine at the same time. on the campaign trail, trump promised to have a blue ribbon security team in place led by rudy giuliani no less than 90 days into his presidency. that plan, though, seems to have fallen by the wayside. speaking of cybersecurity, if you look, you can find the new season of "orange is the new black" available online available for download because it was stolen from netflix. netflix refused to pay a ransom to a hacker so the hacker put the latest season of the series online for anybody to download. probably little chance anybody is going to try to pirate the new movie "the circle." it bombed in the box office. second time in a row for tom hanks. the movie is about a fictional tech company, google mixed with facebook, invading people's privacy. started as a book written by a
5:16 am
celebrated california writer. it got 17% on rotten tomatoes. chicago sun times said it's one of the most crushing letdowns of 2017. rolling stones says ripped from yesterday's headlines. what's really kind of the big story is a bollywood movie did better than "the circle." it came in third. we searched for clips of that, we can't find it, but good on them. >> does that mean you're going to dance for us? >> coming up. >> who wouldn't stick around for that? >> tats a deep tease. thank you very much. >> 5:16 right now. it is be nice to animals week. doesn't that happen every day? well, here's how you do it. you let the dogs loose on a large sheet of cake. they say that cake is dog friendly. >> that's the key. the canadian humane society threw this dog party to celebrate the 110th birthday of the society in edmonton, alberta. you think there would be more dogs there. each of those puppies found a new adopted home before the
5:17 am
party was over yesterday, so they had their cake and ate it, too. >> there you go. frosted paws. >> dog friendly. >> going to feel like the dog days of summer really quick. >> crazy the way we'll see the temperatures swinging over the next couple days. i'll show you examples of where we go and where we're headed as we go into the weekend. let's take a live look outside right now, getting a little light in the sky. the sunrise happening earlier and earlier every day. here we are at 5:17, taking a live look outside at san jose, and we start out with temperatures in the upper 50s, heading up to 85 degrees. where we are now, we'll flip the numbers. as we geinto the day after the nice start, it will be a warm afternoon, and over the next couple days, the heat will be peaking on wednesday before it does cool off. we're at 55 degrees right now in oakland and palo alto. 54 in fairfield. napa, 50 degrees to start the day with high temperatures this afternoon reaching 86 in los gatos and also 86 in east san
5:18 am
jose. for the east bay, up to 87, in concord and walnut creek as well as vallejo, and san francisco also 78 degrees. and 86 degrees today in mill valley. feeling like summertime, if you want something nice and cool, maybe you want to hit the lijs at half moon. that's where our temperatures will be starting out in the low 60s. we stay in the 60s throughout the afternoon. nice little breeze, too. and we talked about those temperature swings. and the melting snow along the merced river coming down from yosemite. you see why. a lot of that snow is melting. temperatures will be in the low 60s over the next few days. then there will be a chance of rain and no snow in the forecast over the weekend. so here's a look at how temperatures go up and back down. up to 78 degrees today in san francisco. 82 on wednesday. and a very nice thursday headed our way as the temperatures come back down, we'll also see some light rain just to the north of
5:19 am
us. but we're going to get the cool air and in time for the weekend for the inland areas we go from 90 degrees on wednesday to 66 degrees on sunday. crazy to see how much we'll see those temps changing as we go through there week. you want to keep checking in for those updates. and mike has a mild start to your commute. >> i do. i don't have the number jumble that you have on the forecast for the week. over here, mostly speed limit numbers. look at the green, just a little slowing out of the altamont. typical pattern. even moving up to the upper east shore freeway, and through the north bay, for san rafael and mill valley. let's take you out to the wise application. you can have that on your phone. you probably do. let's take a look. from hayward to the peninsula, around the pallo alt ow area, you can get across the dumbarton bridge with no delays. and notice the fact instead of 28 minutes, it's 37 minutes.

5:24 am
bi, he found he had been paying that monthly fee for four years, totaling $751. thomas says he's never used stamps.com and doesn't remember signing up. he called stamps.com and asked for a full $751 refund, but the company only offered to refund him $300. he didn't think that was acceptable, so he reached out to us. stamps.com told us thomas' wife might have opened the account by accident. not realizing she had committed to a recurring monthly fee. so stamps.com thought a $300 refund was fair. you can certainly argue, a refund going back four years might be unreasonable, but after we reached out, stamps.com agreed to a full refund of $751. the company declined our request for an official comment. if you have a consumer complaint, let us know. 888-996-tips or logon to nbcbayarea.com/responds.
5:25 am
all right. check the credit card statements, right? like every month. >> 5:24. san jose wants the long-lost books back, and it's willing to forgive borrowers. >> who knows how much money that would have cost you over the years you kept those books, but it doesn't matter because the library announced late fees will be waived starting today in a first ever fine forgiveness program. program runs for the entire month of may. borrowers can bring back library books, dvds, cds, any materials, no questions asked. >> you can still drop them off and run just to be sure. >> for the shame, yeah. >> 5:25. coming up, uc president janet napolitano in the hot seat and will be grilled by lawmakers. the large amount of money found and questions about it.
5:26 am
5:27 am
5:28 am
good morning. live look outside right now, down san jose this morning. one of several cities in the bay area where there are going to be may day rallies here on this first day of may. we'll be covering all of that for you. and we're happy you're starting your work week off with us. i'm sam brock. >> i'm laura garcia-cannon. when i remember may day, it was when you baskets of flower for people on the doorsteps. exactly. >> how things have changed. >> my goodness. yes, they have.
5:29 am
but spring has sprung, and say hello to summer, it feels like. >> yeah, going to be really hot today. if you are going to be out there in the sun for a long period of time, make sure you're prepared and a lot of water with you. as we're going to start out with some nice cool weather. it's 52 in the tri-valley as we take a live look now at pleasanton, and 52 also in the north bay. but san francisco starts out at 56 degrees. here's a look at the high temperatures today. we're up to 87 in the tri-valley and the south bay. the peninsula, 82 degrees. and 78 degrees in san francisco. the north bay is up to 88 degrees. we'll talk about the heat, when it peaks and when it's out of here. that's coming up in a few minutes. mike now has a problem on the bay bridge. >> i do, a slow roller. a slow moving vehicle traveling west in towards san francisco. now, you see that the cars over here on the san francisco side of treasure island are moving at a quicker pace than the ones here on the oakland side. they may have cleared that off over there on the san francisco exit toward harrison. let's look at the map and show
5:30 am
you what it is having on the speed sensors. i see a backup at the bay bridge toll plaza. they should have turned the metering lights on seconds ago anyway, but that may increase the backup. we'll track that crossing carefully, but the rest of the bay moves very lightly. again, watching the bay bridge, a slower vehicle across that span. back to you. >> thanks a lot. >> it's 5:30. may day rallies happening across the country with many right here in the bay area. >> a hectic day specifically at the port of oakland for starters. in just a few hours, workers and protesters plan on shutting down the port, one of the busiest in the country. >> rick boone is there. this is part of a larger may day rallied for oakland. >> reporter: it is, and right now, the port is under some operation. i don't see protests or rallies or anyone in front of gates at this time. trucks are going in, coming out at this point. hundreds of dock workers are normally taking themselves off
5:31 am
the job today, taking part in this, all part of a negotiated day. this is a video of last year's march and rally in the fruitvale district. organizations are meant to highlight working conditions, but in recent years, especially this year, may day rallies have taken a political turn, focusing immigration and living wage and a protest of trump. as you said, this is a huge port, one of the largest in the country, and this could have a trickle down effect because with this protest and dock workers not showing up for work, it could cause backup of trucks and cripple a lot of activity here at the port. back here live at the port, also another issue is going to be getting around this area, if the workers don't show up. there won't be traffic going here, if they block the entrances, that will be a problem because the truckers will be working today. that could be a huge backup in this area around the port of oakland, you may be in traffic jams yourself. a lot to watch out for, major
5:32 am
trickle-down effects from the may day protests and rallies all throughout the bay area. live in oakland, rick boone for today in the bay. >> definitely something we'll be tracking. thank you very much. you mentioned the activity across the bay area pretty much everywhere. >> hundreds of thousands of people will gather across the country. that includes a full slate of protests here. here's a list of some of the other may day rales going on locally. san francisco, san jose, and oakland where rick mentioned, are expected to be the largest. demonstrations also taking place in mountain view, morgan hill, and concord. you can find a complete of rallies on our website, nbcbayarea.com. also happening today, teachers across the bay want to show support for immigrants students. things kick off at new highland academy in oakland with a rally at 7:00, and another at noon at the santa clara county office of education. immigration awareness rally happened at 12:15 at antioch high school, and at 3:30, march starting at bj's restaurant in
5:33 am
newark. >> more reports this morning of a man exposing himself to people on stanford's campus. police say the threes were on the east side of campus about 2:00 sunday morning when a man got out of his car and exposed himself. he then drove off. this is the second time in recent weeks police have investigated a flasher on campus. >> happening today in alameda county, the existing plastic bag ban is expanding to include all retail stores, all restaurants and food trucks. it was first adopted back in 2013, specifically to include grocery stores at first. since that law was implemented, the county has seen a more than 40% reduction in plastic bags found in storm drains. stores as an alternative charge you ken cents for a paper bag. >> the final high-speed rail meeting on the san francisco to san jose leg of the project. the portion will run from the san francisco transbay transit center to their geardawn

5:35 am
just watching the walls of the house fly off and everything around me being gone. >> as people try to recover what's left, they're also preparing for another round of violent storms that could be on the way. >> right now, 5:36. i wanted to show you where the storms are now, continuing their progression off towards the southeast and along the south. we're also going to see them approaching the mid-atlantic coast today. keeping an eye on this area, they may have more severe storms there. we're all clear here in the bay area as we take a live look outside at san jose. a nice and mild start, and the temperature trend for los gatos. look where we go from the mid 60s in the morning to the upper 80s today. we're up to 87 degrees by 3:00 this afternoon. plan accordingly. we're well above average. and we will continue to see this warm weather in the forecast for the next couple days before we will have a cooldown heading into the end of the week. we'll talk more about that. i'll have a look at the forecast

5:41 am
onshore and tried to stop that bleeding. >> used the tourniquet and just brought her to shore as quickly as possible. with as many people as we possibly could get as many towels and apply direct pressure to the wound as we can to try to isolate it. >> her mother set up a gofundme page saying she's a single mother of three. she's expected to go through several surgeries and a lengthy recovery. >> 5:41. uc president janet napolitano on the hot seat tomorrow in skrament. this after a state audit found office allegedly hid tens of millions of dollars. the new state audit reportedly found the office of the president accumulated secret reserves of $175 million. there are reports the office also interfered with a previous audit. the uc head now is going to face a panel of state lawmakers in sacramento tomorrow. napolitano was first appointed head of the university of california four years ago tasked with getting back state funding lost in the recession.
