>> pretty active out there. thank you very much, bob. it is 5:02. back to the microclimate weather alert today. the heat wave we have been talking about continuing to bear down on the bay area. today, everyone is being asked to conserve energy in case of widespread power outages. >> conserve it because we'll need it later in the week. pete is live with so-called flex alert issued today. good morning, pete. >> reporter: good morning to you, sam and laura. with everyone turning up the ac units, it's causing a strain on the state's power grid and can lead to power outages and why the so-called flex alert is in place reminding folks to conserve energy over a couple of days and i want the point out this is voluntary and in place today and tomorrow. here's tips as far as conserving energy. we are told to set the thermostat at 78 degrees or higher and turn it off if you're away and cool down with fans and draw the drapes instead and turn
5:04 am
off unnecessary lights or appliances and use major appliances in the morning or late evening. now, the california independent system operator is one who issued this alert and they're saying peak usage will exceed 45,000 mega watts today and tomorrow. so once again, the flex alert is voluntary. it will be in place today and tomorrow between hours of 2:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. live in walnut creek, pete suratos for today in the bay. >> download the nbc bay area area app, free and monitor temperatures across the bay. happening today, making a footprint in san jose. today san jose city leaders will decide whether to enter an exclusive agreement with google for a mega complex near the sap center. >> dinosaur sized footprint. the city says it could create 20,000 new jobs for the south bay and community groups right now speaking out against it. delivered a letter to the mayor's office saying they're searched that google squeezes
5:05 am
out low-income workers and drive up rental prices. >> we want to make sure that the city negotiates a deal good for the community and not just for google. make sure that the deal to bring the google project here includes affordable housing. >> so mayor says that regardless of any deal the city does or does not strike with google the city is already planning to build more affordable housing. 5:05 right now. urban shield is a highly controversial police training event and convention and tonight demonstrators promising to gather in berkeley ahead of a key city council vote. members consider whether or not to allow the city police officers to remain part of the annual urban shield training program. urban shield involves four days of drills in september involving police teams from across the bay area. the department also receives special federal grant money to cover that training. there are so many questions this morning about what happened to an american student while he
5:06 am
was imprisoned in north korea. 22-year-old otto warmbier died yesterday at a cincinnati hospital. doctors said the student had extensive brain damage. north korean officials said he was in a coma for more than a year after they said he took a sleeping pill battling botulism. doctors in cincinnati found no evidence of botulism. president trump spoke about warmbier's passing. >> a lot of bad things happened. but at least we got him home to be with his parents where they were so happy to see him even though he was in very tough condition but he just passed away a little while ago. it's a brutal regime and we'll be able to handle it. >> not clear how the u.s. is going to respond at this point. north korea sentenced warmbier to 15 years to hard labor for allegedly taking a propaganda
5:07 am
poster off a wall. the chinese tour company said it would not take americans to that country. dealing with tensions with russia and syria after the u.s. military shot down a syrian jet. >> the russians have dismantled a hotline with the u.s. both countries used to avoid collisions in syria. russians have threatened to target u.s. aircraft. the pentagon doesn't seem to be worried. here's the chairman of the joibt chiefs of staff. >> the forces can take care of themselves. >> now to the president's son-in-law. adviser jared kushner, he spoke publicly yesterday which is rare and also getting ready to head to the middle east tomorrow to brok broker peace between the israelis and palestinians. explosive allegations against san francisco state university sued by a group of jewish students and here's why. it is a discrimination lawsuit that accuses the school of
5:08 am
knowingly fostering an anti-semitic vomit and follows a campus appearance of the mayor of jerusalem and protesters disrupted. the suit accuses the school and campus student of violating free speech allowing that to protest to continue. school leaders said that they disagree with the allegations but they're still reviewing the complaint. 5:08. happening today. certainly beach weather and it will likely continue to be so for days. but this morning rescue teams of san francisco and elsewhere gather at ocean beach where they're conducting some water rescue common dm rescue demonstrations. and rip currents we talk about, the sneaker waves, never turn your back. today's demonstration takes place at 10:00 in the morning. and we are trying to beat the heat after dealing with temperatures like this yesterday. brentwood got up to 110 degrees. alamo, 106. walnut creek was 103.

5:11 am
5:12 am
we are coming up on 5:13. we are under a microclimate weather alert as we continue to
5:13 am
track some dangerous heat for the bay area. as we look live right now, the sun rise over san jose on this first day of summer. we head to southeast san jose to the neighborhood of evergreen to look at the temperature trend. at noontime, we'll already be up to 87 degrees and some mid-90s again today. and our average highs for this time of year, 80 degrees. i don't see any of that in the forecast. we'll take a look ahead to the weekend coming up at 5:18. and your commute direction toward the bay bridge move well and away from the bay bridge tracking that problem in oakland. i have an update on the crash scene. >> thank you very much. 5:13 on your tuesday. a developing story, we are learning more information about the man behind the latest terror attack in london. british police say darren osbourne drove a van into a crowd of worshippers killing one and injuring several others. his neighbors said he's a father of four and describe him as
5:14 am
aggressive and strange. he is being held on terror charges. the ntsb opened up the files of a terrible crash of a tesla in florida, a crash that killed the driver. >> scott, investigators have concluded that he wasn't paying attention. >> he was letting the tesla do the driving on auto pilot. he posted lots of photos. they were fun to watch until we learned that brown was killed when his tesla drove straight into the side of a truck in may of 2016. the ntsb issued the preliminary report back in january. saying brown was not paying attention and is exonerated tesla. but just monday investigators opened the docket more than 500 pages we can see what's inside. new pictures of the car after the accident. and more importantly, we have raw data from the tesla sensors.
5:15 am
you can see repeated warnings, sent to the dash board, at least seven times that tesla alerting him his hands were not on the steering wheel tesla's made several changes to the auto pilot system switching from a camera based system to a radar based system. more importantly, if you ignore the warnings to touch the steering wheel, the car will turn itself off. the dow 30s closed record highs on monday. nasdaq very well reversing recent gains. apple with a best dwa of a long time. the gains as investors convinced washington's going to push tax breaks through. speaker of the house paul ryan will reinforce that idea today in a speech promising the house is close to a tax bill but all we have seen is one page of proposals from the white house. little else. the president has tweeted tax cuts are coming. in february, march, again sunday. concern we have in california is
5:16 am
washington may end policies of an exemption of what you pay in state taxes. right now money paid to the state you never see, right? you don't pay federal tax on that. that could change. but again, all we have seen is the single sheet of paper. how wall street or paul ryan thinks it's close i'm not sure. >> yeah. until we actually see it. >> there's no bill. >> it can't happen until they pass health care form and last time you checked is not exactly whizzing right through the congress either. so we'll have to see. a lot of hurdles. >> never seen anything like this whizzing in the water? wildlife teams to use muscle. look at that. rescuing a large luggerhead sea turtle. lost the way on a beach in the florida coast to lay eggs. they found her to be healthy despite the chlorine in the

5:19 am
the snow but the temperatures are going to be very warm. and we'll also have a chance of some afternoon thunderstorms firing up. between tomorrow and thursday. with highs in the upper 70s. we're looking at some low 70s in san francisco and then as that marine layer and the fog retreats away from the coastline, our temperatures even in san francisco will be heating up. we'll be at 84 degrees on thursday cooling down in time for the weekend. and we're going to see the triple digit temperatures for three more day and then we'll be in the upper 90s which is really not that much better. and i'll have more on that and some weekend events coming up in about 20 minutes. mike takes us out on the road with waze. >> we have a crash report. this is aal tern gnat because it affects the drive. this is a smooth drive for most of the bay with an ultimate pass slowing. unexpectedly slow through oakland and now told chp called a sig alert and may take half
5:20 am
hour more to clear this and only one lane open eastbound 580 at golf links. jamming up before keller off of highway 13 all the way down to eastbound 580 getting away from the bay bridge and the castro valley area. following that 880 southbound is a great alternate. mass transit, no delays for bart ac transit either. those are good options and now to waz. eastbound 580 away from highway 13. as i said, including the green route and going from that portion of oakland there toward hayward, shown on the map, that longer route over there, 980 and that's a better route because of that slowing. now track it throughout the day. wherever you're leaving, check waze and on the team to share that information with you. go to the profile. find your name and team and this one, nbc bay area wazers to join to share with you. back to you. >> thank you, mike. coming up next, a very

5:25 am
unusual rescue yesterday. these are actually some of the images there. you see they had to free a young fawn with the leg stuck in a drainage ditch that was right along interstate 80. officers waited for the mother to possibly return. she did not come for her baby so the fawn is now named star. star was brought to a veterinary clinic. she suffered from hypothermia but expected to make a full recovery. happening today in san francisco helping families save for emergencies. city treasurer kicking off a problem to do that. happening at 10:00 at city hall. bank showing nearly one in four americans has no emergency savings. the goal is to have enough money to cover six months of expenses. later today, san francisco is considering banning flavored tobacco products. a committee approved the ordinance. the ban would take effect next

overnight. bob redell talking to neighbors and police out there on the scene and brings us another live report with updates coming up at 6:00 a.m. in the meantime, our micromat weather team coverage continuing this morning. bay area once again experiencing some sweltering temperatures. >> not only is the heat triggering fires and power outages, it is also impacting trees. "today in the bay" kris sanchez live with the reason why. good morning. >> reporter: not just tree hugging around here and doesn't take a big branch to fall to hurt somebody or damage your property. would you believe this hot weather actually brings more trees down and more limbs down than our crazy winter storms if you can believe that. this one came down in the willow glen neighborhood and came down on top of the car. fortunately nobody was inside at the time and no one was injured but a certified arborist said
5:33 am
it's because of evapo-transformation. they pull in the water and then can't release it fast enough through the leaves and the heavy branches just snap. this is another tree that came down on a trail. santa clara county is responsible for that one but you're responsible for the ones at your home or business. michael young of urban tree management says as a homeowner feel free to take down any branch that you can reach from the ground but anything over 20 feet up i should leave to an expert. >> if you can reach it from a ladder, then maybe it's okay to do. but as an arborist, we see all the statistics on accidents when are doing tree work and 9 times out of 10 a homeowner that's fallen off a ladder. >> michael, you don't have to tell me twice. as you look up today, look for dead trees, broken branches
5:34 am
coming down unexpectedly. look for mushrooms or cork and leaning of more than 10 degrees to signal trouble underneath. we'll post some of the information from the u.s. forest service on my facebook page so you can find that later. but coming up at 6:30, what happened when a tree came down in oakland and there was a mama bird and several baby inside. that story coming up at 6:30. kris sanchez, today in the bay. >> we love our trees and wildlife. thanks. 5:34. you can keep track of the heat downloading our nbc bay area app. it is free and monitor temperatures across the bay including your neighborhood. right now, some chilling new details at 5:34. this on the challenges that firefighters faced the night of the deadly ghost ship warehouse fire in oakland. they issued a 50-page report about last year's fire that killed 36. among the revelations in that report, that arriving firefighters actually had no idea at the time that the building was packed with people
5:35 am
who were attending a concert. seven victims on the second floor. we also learned that 29 were found on the ground floor. some under the collapsed roof. the cause may never be determined because the area where the fire started was destroyed. that's not stopping victims' families from taking legal action. >> suing the owner, the master tenant as well as the producers and performers that evening and the others that had worked on the electrical equipment. >> now the report does get into several possible causes for the fire that includes faulty wiring, cigarette, maybe a candle. master tenant and another tenant are both facing three dozen counts of involuntary manslaughter. another person has been arrested in berkeley for allegedly trying to give a child some sort of substance to drink. it happened just a week after a woman was arrested for giving a child methamphetamine at peoples
5:36 am

5:37 am
on the kids. investigators say that he hanged himself. they're not specifying how the children died. >> tragic. 5:37 right now. should san francisco armory hold parties beyond 2:00 a.m.? city leaders decide that today. the venue in the mission is owned by ceo and as the examiner reports it's gone through nearly $2 million worth of soundproofing. the city's entertainment commission will decide today whether to extend saturday hours to 4:00 a.m. the venue does have a special permit for an extended water. this saturday for gay pride. let's get back to the live look at the bay bridge and saw flashing lights. a lane reportedly blocked by a disabled vehicle. still bunches up a tad bit and the flashings disappeared. chp did not confirm this but look at the map and see speed start to recover just from the live camera so the map should
5:38 am
show recovery from red over to low and orange right here. i think they cleared all lanes. the toll plaza metering lights on. and that will cause more bunching off just off the berkeley curve. the second issue as i move out of the way. we have good news. they have moved that car crash of the way for eastbound 580 at golf links or 98 and quick recovery of keller. green to the scene. just taking about seven minutes to recover. the rest of the bay moving very well, including transit. no major delays and the tri-valley looking at a little bit of slowing through the tri-valley. back to you. >> thank you. >> back to us. >> the team. nbc wazers. tuesday morning. trying to get a peak at the weekend. cooler temperatures? >> you have to head to the coast this weekend. >> still hoping. >> just a little bit lower inland valleys and looking at the inland areas, 96 degrees. i guess that's better than 106 but, i mean, still going to be
