5:34 am
evacuations and rescues under way this morning but finally there's some hope in store. today in the bay is in houston. here's the report from overnight. >> reporter: well this is what downtown houston has been waiting to see, some -- a few of these gas stations are now open and some restaurants are also beginning to open their doors here in this metropolis. we found only one gas station that was open in the 40-mile radius yesterday. this morning more are turning on the pumps. that's good news for many, about other parts of houston are still faced with a lot of uncertainty. two nearby communities that thought they were spared the wrath of hurricane harvey found themselves seeking higher ground. there were many more evacuations yesterday and the fear is more are expected today. the forced re-release of water from dams and reservoirs is sending that water into unsuspecting neighborhoods. one family who volunteered helping flood victims the day before ironically found themselves in the same need.
5:35 am
>> we woke up to two feet of water on the first floor and they all had some tears. >> reporter: in that true texas spirit the locals tell me they will fight through this. a community that is sticking together during one of the nation's worst disasters. again, gas stations are beginning to open up again as this community begins to heal from this devastation. we're in downtown houston, i'm damien tra hee hoe, today in the bay. 5:36 right now. now to developments in the deadly shoot out out side a sacramento hotel that killed a sheriff's deputy yesterday. authorities say the gunman is from the bay area. we also learned more about the deputy who died. he's identified as robert french, a 21-year veteran of the force. yesterday's arrest ended in a drama that played out over several hours in the cell phone video shows authorities arresting the suspect who authorities tell success a 31-year-old bay area man. it start when'd deputies detained two women they say were driving a stolen car.
5:36 am

5:37 am
spots where they're seeing a lot of these incidents that they're occurring in and what they're referring to as their robbery suppression detail. they're aggressively looking to hire more officers. nearly 40 positions they're looking to fill in the next year and a half many an aggressive effort by bart. another big issue for bart is fare evision and they gave us the numbers. what we're learning from those numbers is that those fare evasion numbers, those tolls were fairly high the months of february and march but took a dip in may through june. i want to point out that's when bart police ramped up its focus on this specific issue spot in those specific months from may through june the overall incidents are down 20%. the citations down nearly 30% and field interviews rartding fare evasion incidents down nearly 20%. and bart tells us the number of fare evasion incidents in august unfortunately nearly doubled those june numbers. and when it comes to fare evasion, it costs the bart system overall more than $25 million annually every year.
5:38 am
we're live in walnut creek, pete suratos for "today in the bay ". and pete's talking about one part of bart where we're trying to make improvements and evaluation. right now we're following bigger delays because of bart, equipment problem. unspecified. the friend of our desk is checking with bart to get more detail to give us a better idea about how long it might take but it's developed in over 20 minutes delay on the peninsula and likely will ripple throughout the system if it doesn't clear up soon. meanwhile look at the roadways and a good option for you to carpool pr that bart station and maybe get on the roadway there and take the train, caltrain desperate from there as well. we have slowing south 880 toward industrial, it looks like the crash may have moved to the shoulder but it was in lanes for a few. well. >> everyone's looking ahead to the weekend, of course we want to know that forecast. we know it's going to be a hot one. >> we're all planning around this weather with extreme temperatures expect and it will still be dangerously hot on
