investigation, again, all lanes are open but pete suratos is out, you've been following it since the beginning of the show. this involves chp, i think that's why things took a little longer. >> reporter: that's right, mike, those lanes reopened roughly around 5:40 and according to chp we just talked to them off camera they're telling us that this involved only one patrol car and that patrol car was en route to help another unit on the freeway. behind me you see that the traffic is typical of this morning. let's show you the scene from this morning on the freeway when that patrol car essentially hit a center divider. the cause of that cash is unknown. we do know it shut down the freeway between whipple and woodside for a few hours, reopening in the past 20 minutes. as far as injuries to the officers, they are minor and they have been transported to a hospital, according to chp, but the cause of that crash is unknown and right now, guys, for commuters those lanes have been
reopened. >> good news for morning commuters there. thank you, pete, for following that. 6:00 right now, live look at mind lay bay in las vegas this morning where the investigation into the mass shooting continues. the fbi said there are still no clues about what might have pushed a retired real estate investor and professional gambler to murder 58 people. >> a vigil was held last night in las vegas for the victims. 500 others were injured that that attack on sunday night. federal agents have been speaking with the gunman's girlfriend and she said she had no idea he was planning the attack. as investigators keep looking for a motive we are now learning more chilling details about that attack. today in the bay's jay gray live near the crime scene to bring us up to speed on the investigation. new new, jay? >> reporter: good morning, laura, good morning, marcus. yeah, a lot of new details coming out of this investigation as officers and agents try to piece together the gunman's life before the attack and for the
first time now police saying at some point he may have had some help. >> heap your head down. go. >> reporter: four days after the massacre in las vegas the investigation is growing. >> more than 100 investigators have spent the last 72 hours combing through the life of 64-year-old stephen paddock to produce a profile of someone i will call disturbed and dangerous. >> reporter: there is new information this morning including this stunning revelation from sheriff joe lombardo. >> do you think this was all accomplished on his own? >> self value -- face value, you've got to make the assumption he had to have some step at some point. >> reporter: while police don't know where that help may have come from, the investigation has revealed a significant amount of explosives in paddock's car, thousands of rounds of unused ammunition in his hotel room. we also now know some of his
guns apparently jammed during the attack. and while they won't say what it is, investigators do say there's evidence paddock expected to survive and us cape after the attack. federal agents have spentd hours talking about his girlfriend marilou danley and say she's cooperating fully with the investigation. she also shared a statement through her attorney. >> i am devastated by the death and injuries that have occurred and my prayers go out to the victims and their families. >> reporter: victims and families that like investigators continue to search for answers here. >> and in the days leading up to the attack paddock has spent some time with another woman, investigators would like to know who she is and speak with her. we also now know that he gambled for hours before locking his hotel room door and turning his weapons on the crowd below.
a lot of questions still unanswered, laura, marcus. >> jay gray reporting there in las vegas. we will continue to follow this day by day progress of the investigation both on air and online for new details as they emerge we will post those updates on our website nbcbayarea.com. happening today it is a deadline for dreamers to renew their applications for daca, but it comes at a time when a lot of uncertainty about the future even of the program. >> "today in the bay's" kris sanchez is live in san jose this morning to explain what could happen to people who don't apply for daca. >> well, we did ask an immigration attorney about that, but we will mention that san jose the city was one of the first agencies or governmental bodies to sue the trump administration over the end of daca and despite that pressure and pressure from other avenues the deadline to renew those applications has not been extended. now, what has happened is that d.r.e.a.m.ers have taken to the
streets to protest what they say is the end of daca. they are calling for action after coming out of the shadows to apply for that deferred action on childhood arrival that promise the protection against deportation and permission to work. now, the trump administration announced it would phase out the program last month and then told congress to take action to protect the d.r.e.a.m.ers. today's deadline is for the 150,000 or so daca recipients whose status expires on or march march 5th of next year. we talked with that immigration attorney about whether some of the d.r.e.a.m.ers she's talking with are wondering whether it's worth of trouble or whether they're making themselves greater targets for deportation by renewing those daca applications. >> there is a lot of fear sometimes in the community. it's important to remember, yes, the government knows about your personal information, but i think it's worth it to have those two other years of let's
say semi-protection and authorization to work in the united states. >> now, i posted a link on facebook and twitter to a "wall street journal" nbc news poll that shows that the majority of people want daca to continue and despite the fact that there is broad based support for continuing daca the snag here appears to be over how to make it happen, whether it can be a stand-alone bill or whether it is something that needs to be wrapped up in a whole comprehensive immigration reform bill. that remains to be seen. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." thanks so much, kris. 6:06 right now. new video to show you this morning, this is a boat fire in the san leandro bay on the alameda oakland border. broke out about 12:45 in the morning. fire officials say no one was on board, said it was abandoned, the cost guard is investigating. no word on a possible cause. new in morning, designing
your own downtown, that's exactly what one east bay city is letting its people do. >> "today in the bay's" bob redell joins us from livermore with a look at a pretty innovative approach. it's very interactive, bob. >> reporter: good morning to you. you might recall that popular video game sym city, the city of livermore needs whatever skills you acquired playing that game to help you figure out what to do with this eight acre plot of land in the heart of downtown. the city does have ideas on what to build on these two parcels located between first street and railroad avenue but the planning department would like your inn input as well. they have lumped an online tool that helps you come up with your own plan. with the click of a mouse you can choose where to place housing, hotel, office, retail and conference center space as well as parking and plazas. the tool lets you know how much your project would end up costing the city. >> we are looking to see are
there themes behind what people are seeing. maybe people want open space in the heart of downtown. as people submit we will begin to capture that and also be able to see where they want it, what kind of retail do they want, where do they want that retail. maybe i will come up with an idea we have never thought of. >> a number of citizens have posted their ideas online if you want to see what your friends and neighbors have in mind. livermore is accepting feedback through the end of the month. the hope is to have a plan in place early next year with construction starting sometime in 2019. livermore tells us that the city of menlo park used a similar tool for one of its own projects. if you're interested in helping out the city in the east way, you can find the on line tool, we have linked it to our website at nbcbayarea.com. reporting in livermore, bob redell, "today in the bay." right now it's 6:08 and we have a chilly start but look at our high temperatures for this afternoon, it's going to warm up
nicely so even though it's cold now look at our highs today reaching into the mid 80s from concord down to livermore down to morgan hill and up to napa. while oakland will see a high of 76 degrees today, san jose 82, we are looking at some low 70s for san francisco but a little bit warmer as we go into the weekend and early next week, we will feel more like summer for the inland valleys reaching up to the upper 80s starting tomorrow throughout early next week. heading over to mike now, a new crash in san jose. >> that's right, this is on 101 as well. the one in redwood city cleared, the traffic flow at speed there. the one in san jose is northbound, that is your commute direction coming through san jose. you saw from the speed sensors around the rest of the bay, no problem. here from about 680 up to just shy the oakland avenue your middle lane is blocked, that's the problem. we're hearing about a tow truck headed to the scene. the live shot will tell you what's going on. backups starting to form just
before you get to 280 and 680 at the top of your screen. things are very slow up past oakland stretch of the bay shore freeway, that's the worst for silicon valley. back to you. 6:10. coming up next on "today in the bay," imagine being able to instantly understand 40 different languages, the new technology that can make it happen and how soon it will be available. >> and silicon valley social media companies get an invitation from the senate they probably can't ignore. we will fill you in when today in the bay continues.
get a nice warm sweater before you take the dog out for a walk this morning. let's take a live look outside in san jose. it's a chilly start and let's go to the neighborhood of evergreen for the temperature trend for today late morning it's going to be in the mid 60s, quickly warming up into the low 80s today. maybe each for a short period of time you will have to turn on the air conditioning. we will talk about the likelihood of using your air conditioning a lot more for the weekend that's coming up in about five minutes. we are looking over here, this is a smooth easy drive, live view for redwood city southbound 101 all lanes reopened after the overnight crash and investigation there. we will show you the rest of your commute and slowing in san jose. 6:13. oakland leaders will talk about the city's latest round of pothole repairs. crews have been working for
three weeks in what they're calling a mini blitz, that is aggressively knocking out the backlog of needed repairs. we are getting a look at google's new line of products. some of the coolest gadgets may be new wireless headphones, the pixel buds can tap into google assistant, they can translate up to 40 languages in realtime. the feature is activated when you say help me speak french, or any other language. headphones go on sale next month for $159. >> google has been invited to testify before the senate intelligence dme. this is about the presidential election. >> scott mcgrew, it's an invitation you don't turn down. >> you do not. google, twitter and facebook have all been invited to discuss their role in the russian attack on our election. most of the focus is on facebook. facebook says russians bought $100,000 worth of ads and facebook has turned copies of
those ads over to the senate intelligence committee. now, that committee says it can't show us those ads, not to the public, not in the middle of an investigation, but it has no problem if facebook does. >> clearly if any of the social media platforms would like to do that we're fine with them doing it because we've already got scheduled an open hearing because we believe the american people deserve to hear firsthand. >> as for that open hearing, the senate intelligence committee says it will economy leaders from facebook, google and twitter set november 1st as the date. now, it is an invitation not a demand, though as laura points out those sorts of invitations carry a lot of weight. shortly after the committee said november 1st facebook announced it would make its quarterly report to investors on the very same day. that might make it difficult for executives like mark zuckerberg to attend the senate inquiry because they will be busy. the two leaders of the committee you saw say they are drafting a
bipartisan law that would force social networks like facebook to reveal who buys political ads, the same way political ads on tv and radio from v. to explain their funding. another win for stocks on wednesday. now, we get the big jobs number tomorrow, but it's going to be a curious one because the data is going to be a mess. remember, we had a few hurricanes, didn't we? you don't hire in the middle of a hurricane. we do expect unemployment rates to stay about the same. the president this morning tweeting all about how excited he is about jobs. it will be interesting to see what he says tomorrow. if the jobs go down it's nobody's fault, it's the storm's fault, but we will see. >> one to watch. if you are in san francisco today get ready to hear some loud thunderous sounds in the sky. no need to panic about it, it's just the blue angels practicing. they're getting ready for their air show this weekend for fleet week. it's cool stuff to see them out.
>> i know. it's kind of a bonus if you get to watch them practice, too. if you get to hear them break the sound barrier, that is the thing. >> yes. >> and the weather out there will be great. >> it's going to be really nice. we have had beautiful weather throughout the week that continues into the weekend. just a little warmer. if you've been waiting on warmer temperatures you've got it, but look at how cold it is this morning, it almost feels like winter, especially in the north bay. santa rosa you are at 40 degrees, napa, 44. a few spots in the north bay and valleys did i think into the upper 30s. oakland and san francisco it's 50 degrees, 51 degrees in san jose. let's get a look at these high temperatures today, just a little bit warmer than yesterday but still pleasant. our winds will be breezy coming out of the northwest at about 11 miles an hour throughout the day. mostly some low to mid 80s, concord today up to 86 degrees, oakland 76 degrees and for the peninsula 79 in san mateo,
redwood city 81 degrees, 71 on the embarcadero and north bay and sonoma today expect a high of 84 degrees. now, as you're getting the kids out the door and ready for school this morning we have the chilliest temperatures in the north bay, santa rosa, you are still going to be in the 40s by the time you walk the kids to school in the next hour and then at recess they are going to have some slightly more comfortable temperatures but still most likely wearing long sleeves and then walking home from school it's going to be really nice in the upper 70s. getting out early in san francisco, going for a run it's going to be in the low to mid 50s, perfect jogging weather even throughout the afternoon as our highs reach into the upper 60s. if the kids have after school activities or football practice, something like that on the peninsula it's going to be in the upper 70s today after school. then heading into the weekend in san francisco some mid 70s in the forecast, still really nice into next week. while the inland areas will have some hot temperatures, especially for this time of year. we are going to be about 10
degrees above where we should be for early october. and like you're still tracking that crash in san jose. >> i have two crashes, the second one just occurred and then both cleared. that's the good news, but the bad news is you still have slowing right there as i move away you can see that little bit in san jose. the rest of the bay looks great. frein sensors for most of the drivers, slowing rippling back to tully but clearing up as you approach the earlier crashes over at oakland road, both have cleared the roadway, that's why we see those speed sensors quickly recovering through a that i remember a i can't. the rest of the south bay plenty of options, 87, 85 as well through downtown, 85 up through saratoga and in toward cupertino no days, either. the erlg yer crash at the castro valley y did clear and we have good recovery now, that's how light traffic s we have recovery at the castro valley y after the earlier crash cleared there. slowing south 880 down through hayward toward the san mateo bridge, typical there.

because the tags had expired. when laura lynn collected her belongings her $500 sunglasses were missing. she asked hertz to reimburse her, after all, the tow wasn't her fault. she says the rental car company said no. after a month of getting nowhere she asked us for help. we contacted hertz. as for the tow it told us the car's registration automatically renewed but it hadn't placed the stickers on the license plate. yes, your car can be towed then impounded if the kags are more than six months expired. back to the sunglasses, hertz reimbursed laura lynn $500. hertz offered laura listen its sincere apologies for the error and loss of her belongings. if you have a consumer complaint call us, 888-996-tips or log on to nbcbayarea.com/responds. 6:24. new this morning when it comes to the risk of a housing bubble the bay area is better protected than most places that's the

inc. in van ness in san francisco for a signing of her new book "what happened." the president this morning is furiously denying reports his secretary of state wanted to quit. >> he calls it fake news. >> he does. nbc news, though, says it isn't fake. this morning "the new york times" is reporting the same thing. that rex tillerson has wanted to resign more than once. nbc reports tillerson first wanted to quit as he watched the president's speech to the boy scouts back in july, a speech so bizarre the boy scouts apologized. a speech that included a story about a cocktail party aboard a yacht and the president asking the boys, quote, who the hell wants to talk about politics before talking about politics. the president tweeted this morning rex tillerson never threatened to resign. this is fake news put out by nbc news. low news and reporting standards. no verification from me. nbc also reported tillerson
called the president a moron. president -- or tillerson, rather, denied that he ever wanted to resign. adds for the moron comment -- >> can you address the main head line of this story that you called the president a moron and if not where do you think these reports -- >> i'm not going to deal with petty stuff like that. i mean, this is what i don't understand about washington. again, you know, i'm not from this place, but the places i come from we don't deal with that kind of petty nonsense. >> the president's biggest problem is not who works for him but who doesn't work for him. despite the fact that republicans hold the senate, the president has nominated very few people to fill roles and has had fewer confirmed by the senate. as of this morning 168 key roles, compare that to obama, george w. bush, bill clinton and george h.w. bush and the president is significantly behind in the same timeline. >> we examine the president's tweets and executive orders and speeches every day right here on
"today in the bay." we'd love to hear from you, you can reach me on twitter i'm @scottmcgrew. if you have something good to say about someone you say is loudly and i'm saying laura garcia is a great woman and she has been honored with a great honor today to really be able to emcee something. >> i'm the emcee at this year's women of impact luncheon in san jose, not for me, though, it's to highlight all these other great women, it sponsors and highlights women who have really made great contributions to society and of course the world. it's organized by san jose's notre dame high school, it's happening at 11:30 this morning at the san jose convention center and it's sold out. all the money is going to go to stem programs for young programs at notre dame. science, technology, engineering, arts and math. the goal is to get more young girls into those subjects so it will be fun. go out and meet and greet and see folks. >> i'm just emceeing it. >> you can meet some role
models. >> i can learn a lot. i can learn a lot. >> what we want to learn about is the weather this weekend. >> it is cool as you get ready to head out the door and we will have a cool start. a warm afternoon so you have to be prepared for just about everything today. as we get a look at what it's going to feel like as you step out the door in the traels, only 49 degrees, a chilly start, mostly clear on the left side of the screen looking at the south bay the current temperature 51, also 51 looking at san francisco and a chilly 40 degrees now in the north bay, and then as we get a look at these high temperatures by this afternoon making it into the mid 80s for the interior valleys, the inner bay reaching into the mid 70s, down to 82 degrees for san jose and 71 degrees in san francisco. as we get a look at the outdoors and getting dressed for today we are going to have those temperatures that will make you want to put on a hat or something to keep you warm. as we go through the day you will be comfortable wearing some
pants as we will continue on with a day that will be nice and also sunny. as you're about to walk the kids to school this morning in oakland, school day forecast starts us out with temperatures in the low 50s, it will be 52 degrees, so you will want to hold your coffee and keep your hands warm. as the kids head out to recess today it will be in the mid 60s and walking home from school or going to that pickup line is going to be in the low 70s. the morning commute for the south bay starts out with low 50s as well, so laura said she turned on the seat warmers today, you may be doing the same, and then later on today opening the windows to put in fresh air. the kids may have outdoor activities, sunshine pleasant with pleasy winds and starting to cool down around 6:00. >> i wanted to give you a heads up about what's happening for our friends along the gulf coast. we will be tracking something now tropical storm nate has developed and it is well to the
south, very disorganized area of circulation, but over the next few days computer models take it over the yucatan peninsula and possibly into parts of the northern gulf coast over the next few days and that includes the new orleans area. so just make sure your friends and family in that area are prepared over the next several days. we are looking at temperatures that will in san francisco reach into the mid 70s, it's going to be really nice and then as we get a look at what's happening for the inland areas, warming up into the upper 80s over the next several days. mike, you have some sort of hazard for drivers in san francisco. >>est that the best description i can give. that's what i got from chp. some sort of hazard in the middle of the roadway. we will show you, overall the commute not really that bad, but we are looking at north 280 approaches highway 87, there may be a quick traffic break if this turns out to be anything of note. we do see the building, i do think traffic is slowing getting up toward the 87 interchange and coming past that 680, 101
interchange, do i take northbound 101 or 280, both are showing the slow down. the san mateo and dumbarton bridges both showing the build, a smooth drive once you get to the peninsula. getting over toward the bay bridge the upper east shore freeway and walnut creek interchange show the build typical for this time of day. from pa knoll towards san francisco that purple route takes you about an hour and 20 minutes, maybe more by the time you leave the roadway and get back through the backup that continues to build through the maze. let me show you this other route, less drama but more mileage, a little longer going across toward that north bay side, the drive into the city across the golden gate bridge also beautiful. you make your choice but that's a two toll drive. and plan out your route, make sure you remember right here, nbc bay area wazers, that's our team, your team if you join. back to you. coming up next, a quick look
at the top stories here on "today in the bay" including the ongoing investigation into the deadly las vegas mass shooting. the information we're expected to learn today from firefighters who responded to the massacre. but first happening now breaking news, a chemical weapons watchdog said traces of sarin gas was found after the attack in syria that injured 50, days later an attack killed near 100 people. syria has denied responsibility for those attacks. plus cover your kids even if they are up, turkish archeologists believe they may have discovered the remains of st. nicholas, he is the ledge that santa claus is based on. archeologists say his body was found beneath a church in his birthday in turkey.
