6:02 am
some 400 or so who gathered over the weekend to get their point across. we don't know what the terms of that agreement are because the union has to present it to the membership order for them to ratify it, but we do know what was on the at last check. the city was offering a 10% raise, even a $6,000 signing bonus to try to avert the strike. didn't come until 3:30 this morning or so that the agreement was reached. we know from the union leadership that supervisor chavez was instrumental in getting both sides to the table because there had been a stalemate up to that point. the union leader is here, and we're expecting to talk with him in the nextal minutes. we'll bring you more information and update you on twitter as well. in sunnyvale, kris sanchez, today in the bay. >> thank you very much. 6:02 right now. a busy morning already for san jose police investigating an overnight shooting that happens near a caltrain station.

6:08 am
melts all the snow. the winter brought the most rain and snow in history to the sierras. rivered could be extra cold and will run faster and quicker as the pack is melting. >> as we get a look at the snow pack for the sierra, we know it's been a record season. taking a look at some of the numbers for the northern sierra, still at 196% of average. central sierra at 200% of average. we talked about all of that snow melting. here's a live look outside from heavenly right now as the sun rises and the temperatures over the next few days reaching into the low 70s. so it is going to be really warm. melting that snow and causing some of those rivers nearby to flood. but check this. we'll have a slight chance of some snow this weekend in the sierra. we'll talk more about that. let's get a live look now on the roads with mike. he has progress in oakland. >> progress indeed. bemind me is our shot from the sky ranger. you see that traffic is now
6:09 am
getting by one lane northbound 880. there's an ambulance trying to help out with whatever issary. they're going to have to loop around the other sigh. northbound 880, one lane is open at fifth. let's show you the map and get you oriented. first, the jammed up traffic starting to break up a little bit as you're traveling north into downtown. but it is jammed solid from the column all the way up to the crash where folks are diverted at fifth. 580 a much better route or the san mateo bridge south on 880 to westbound 92. there's one lane, and just 25 minutes for 580. now, a look at the rest of the bay, everything else is moving smoothly. but the big problem is 880, and consider it basically closed right now through oakland although one lane is getting by at fifth. back to you. >> thank you, mike. >> an alarming new study outlining how many sexual assaults are happening at schools across america. coming up in just three

6:12 am
live look out here from our nbc bay area sky ranger over the scene of this deadly crash. northbound 880. one lane getting by, but do not be deceived.
6:13 am
the freeway is closed before you get to fifth. these folks getting by were stuck in a backup since this crash happened. we'll show you the backup that continues for the nimitz and the reroute that you have as options. as we take a live look outside right now over san jose, it's all clear and the temperature trend starts out in the low 70s by 10:00 this morning. into the mid to upper 80s today. we'll talk about the peak of the heat and a look ahead to the weekend coming up in five minutes. you talk about the heat, kari. thank you very much. 6:13 right now. a fresh reminder that fire danger is starting to elevate. the fight to contain flames burning in southern california going on now. there's a wildfire threatening homes in riverside county. the fire started last night and quickly spread through heavy brush, growing to more than 15 acres there. about 100 firefighters are battling the flames but strong winds right now are making it difficult for firefighters to contain it. the so-called jamison fire is one of just several blazes
6:14 am
burning across that area of southern california. the opera fire and tower fire charred several hundred acres. >> new this morning, a shocking report about school sexual assault. in the last four years, there have been about 17,000 reported incidents. the associated press analyzed four years worth of crimes reported at the k-12 level, all compiled by the fbi. most reported attackers were males in cases volving both females and other males. the associated press found the list is not complete and some estimates are higher. >> they may be out of sight but should not be out of mind. a serious threat to california's levees that could put our drinking water in jeopardy here in the bay area. >> stephen stock has this preview of tonight's story. >> erosion, earthquakes and rodents all 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 of
6:15 am
the levees that protect california's cities from major flooding do not meet modern day standards. and 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 levellies on the skrament delta. it could knock out our electrical grid and contaminate our drinking supply, even threaten the frustructure that carries drinking water to the bay area and to southern california. >> a loss of a levee here in the delta could lead to disruption of the water supply services elsewhere in the state that could be measured in months to years. >> this is serious stuff. this is 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 the drinking water supplies for millions of
6:16 am
californians. >> coming up tonight at 11:00, we investigate the challenges facing california's levee system. and we explore exactly what the state plans to do about it. that's tonight at 11:00. we'll see you then. >> all right, thank you so much. if you have a tip for our investigative unit, 888-996-tips. you can also send an e-mail to theunit@nbcbayarea.com. >> the president is asking silicon valley tech leaders to join him at the white house. >> the invitation went out, but many may be reluctant. >> he has a few die-hard supporters here. the ceo of oracle, peter thiel, of course. the ceo of intel. but a lot of people have been under pressure to disassociate themselves, including elon musk. they say trump wants a new tech summit led by his son-in-law, jared kushner. kushner has a lot on his plate, including bringing peace to the middle east. on the campaign trail, mr. trump promised to have a blue ribbon
6:17 am
cybersecurity team in place led by rudy giuliani no later than 90 days into his presidency. but that plan seems to have fallen by the wayside. tech does like the president's tax proposals which would slash corporate income tax and allow a one-time repatriation of funds. companies can bring the cash in that they makeover seas back to america. tim cook has been pushing for that for years. here he is testifying before congress about overseas money and corporate tax. apple reports profits tomorrow, and some experts say they expect apple to say it has a quarter trillion dollars in cash. that would be the biggest cash horde in corporate history. now, not everything in silicon valley makes money. the movie "the circle" about the fictional company by the same name absolutely bombed at the office. second terrible movie in a row for tom hanks, by the way. the circle is about a company, think google combined with
6:18 am
facebook. based on a book by celebrated author dave eggers from san francisco. hey, guys, how about drones dropping on your head? this is video from the government study that says, you don't really need to worry about drones falling on your head. the faa study said that drones sort of bend when you see this, kind of bend around when they hit your head. they don't hurt as much as a block of wood, which is what is going on on the right-hand side. of all the things you need to worry about, that's not one. >> what about the propeller getting stuck in your hair? >> propeller guards where important. >> don't worry as in it's going to hurt a lot, won't hurt a lot, it will still hit you in the head. >> take a look at this. twin toddlers getting a surprise when they took their toy car out for a drive in new york saturday might. they were pulled over by an officer. yeah, pulled over that little range rover. the officer jokingly gave them a ticket. they weren't in too much trouble. high fiving the officers. the dad alex posted the
6:19 am
encounter on instagram. cute. slow it down, boys. slow it down. >> you know, i think they didn't have tags on that car. they'll be good to go. >> license, vehicle registration, please. >> we've been driving right through beautiful weather. you could have had your top down this weekend and it would have been awesome. >> you can keep the convertible top down for the next couple days with all this warm weather. then we're still not looking at any rain in the forecast. some more clouds this weekend. here's a live look outside at san francisco. we start out with a beautiful morning, at 6:19, and it feels nice and mild as you head out the door. 54 degrees there. 55 in oakland and palo alto, and napa is dropped down to 48 degrees while fairfield is at 63. a wide range in temperatures starting out today. we'll see the high temperatures in san jose up to 85. for the east bay, up to 87 written walnut creek, the
6:20 am
peninsula, 78. belmont at 82, 78 in the mission district while santa rosa is up to 88 degrees. it's going to feel like summer. maybe you want to hit somewhere cool. how about hitting the links at half moon bay? it will be a nice one as temperatures stay in the 60s with all of that 9 and no worries about fog today. maybe if you're dpoig to head to some of the hiking trails in the south bay or go to the park, it will be nice and dry. a lot of sunshine. and no worries about getting some mud on your hiking shoes. it will be hot, though, so bring water, lots of water. we'll see the warm weather over the next couple days. you want to stay hydrated. here's a live look outside now at kirkwood. as the sun rises this morning, we talked about that chance of snow in the forecast. and that moves in on saturday and sunday. after a week with temperatures in the 70s there, it is definitely going to cool down. we'll also have a big cooldown in san francisco. low 80s on wednesday. that will be the hottest day of the week.
6:21 am
60s for the weekend. 90 inland on wednesday, and then you see how the temperatures take a nose dive heading into sunday. as we head over to mike, an up on what's happening on 880. >> it does appear we have at least one lane and possibly a couple more. sky ranger checking out the scene of the deadly crash, northbound 880 at fifth. this is our live camera at the coliseum. we see from the bottom of the screen, from 66th past high street, 23rd to fifth and oak, that's where the deadly crash continues to have at least three lanes blocked in the last shot we saw from our sky ranger helicopter over there. that will remain the situation for quite some time. getting you out to the maps, we'll show you how things are shaping up. everything outside of oakland is all right, but that also has a ripple effect. because 880 is so constricted, you're going to wand to use 580 as an option or the san mateo bridge. let's take you to waze to show you exactly what we're talking about. getting up on the blue line there, that will take you up
6:22 am
through downtown oakland. that takes overtwo hours out of san leandro. if you take the 580 reroute and then go through the maze, that's still over an hour. or an hour as well. you see the wazers, that's the team to be a part of. we can share that traffic information to give you the edge from wherever you are, whenever you leave. >> thank you very much. >> 6:22 right now. >> tough drive in oakland this morning. >> closing for good, the reason a popular bay area restaurant chain is shutting its doors today. >> the recurring fee shouldn't have been charged in the first place. i'm chris chmura. nbc bay area responds next. stores prepares to close shop.

6:25 am
after nearly 100 years in the bay area, a small chain of italian stores is preparing to close up shop. a.j. ferrari wants to shutter its four delis in san francisco and oakland. this was founded in 1919 by geovany ferrari. sales were not a problem. they wanted to expand distribution and the cost of operating in the pay was just too much. >> the classic part of the bay area. >> i love that store, by the way. >> 6:25. nbc bay area responds to a livermore man paying a monthly fee for an account he says he never signed up for. >> he had been paying for it for about four years every single
6:26 am
month. heally reached out to us for help. chris chmura brings us the story. >> last fall, thomas noticed a charge on his credit card for $15.99 from stamps.com. after digging around, he found he had been paying the monthly fee for four years totaling $751. thomas says he's never used stamps.com and doesn't remember signing up. so he called stamps.com and asked for a full $751 refund. he says 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 that 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
6:27 am
for an official comment. if you have a consumer complaint, let us know. the number is 888-996-tips or logon to nbcbayarea.com/responds. >> thank you very much, chris. >> 6:27 right now. coming up next on today in the bay, breaking news. major backups on an east bay freeway. mike is tracking that, plus, weather whiplash. this week's forecast is a mixed bag. >> it will be a warm one today as we take a look outside, 101 and san jose. all clear skies overhead and the temperature trend going way up this afternoon. a look at the temperatures coming up next. >> some worker groups could block the port of oakland entrance, how that stoppage could affect you today. find ping-pong. find your awesome with the xfinity x1 voice remote. that's amazing!

6:30 am
i )m laura garcia cannon. =sam/2shot= good monday morning to you. thanks so much for starting your day with us. i'm laura garcia-cannon. >> i'm sam brock. not the best way to start a monday if you're trying to commute through oak right now. major delays on the nimitz. you're getting some conflicting information. >> first, this is because of a deadly crash this is horrible information for at least the family of the people affected by this directly. and also for the folks who are driving in the area. the conflicted information we're getting from chp is we're told on the chp report that the two middle lanes are open at the scene, but obviously from our picture from nbc bay area sky ranger, we have only the fast lane open. at least that is open. that's why you have us and our
6:31 am
chopper overhead. this backup continues back to the coliseum, so there's quite a stretch of the nimitz. let's show you on the map the effect of that. that is jamming up the freeway from san leandro up in the area, through oakland. 580 is a much easier route, but because of the backup at the bay bridge toll plaza, that adds on to your commute, and a smoother drive but slower across the san mateo bridge as well. those are the routes affected and the ripple out of oakland through hayward and the rest of the east bay. oakland and the approach to the bay bridge. the rest of the bay, south bay and peninsula, are looking good right now. and kari, i think the forecast isul also looking good. >> we're looking at clear skies and comfortable temperature as as you get ready to head out the door. here's a live look at san jose. as the sun rises this morning, it's all bright with temperatures in the upper 50s, heading up to 85. after this nice start, it will be warming up quickly today, and the rest of the week, we'll see

6:33 am
this year, may day rallies have taken a political turn, focusing on immigration and a living wage and the proof the trump administration. protests at the port will have a trickle down effect. this, by the way, is one of the largest ports in the country moving goods from ships to truck and reverse, with a protest and dock workers not showing up for work, it could cause a real trickle down effect for people who are waiting for those goods to get to a lot stores and locations here throughout the bay area. also, another trickle down effect that will be happening with the may day rallies and marches here, especially at the port of oakland, if you're driving around this area, jack london square, just inches away from where i'm standing, that's a busy area for a lot of pedestrians who want to shop or enjoy a day at a restaurant. expect delays because if this is a work stoppage, trucks will be backing up, traffic will be crazy in this area. we're live in oakland. rick boone for today in the bay. >> 6:33. happening today, as may day
