uber is overhauling its disaster response procedures so it doesn't get caught during major events like a hurricane. in the past uber relied largely on local teams to make decisions about suspending service or capping surge pricing. now those decisions will be handled by uber's new global security center. uber has been criticized for failing to suspend surge pricing during the terrorist bombings in new york and new jersey in 2016. and it was dogged by false claims of price gouging following the terrorist attack in paris in 2015. dunkin donuts is dropping half its name. it is dropping the donuts part. the move is part of focus on beverages. starting in january, dunkin's advertising, website, packages and other public messages will use the name dunkin and the stores will be remodeled but donuts will still remain a

6:17 am
>> you know, it's wedding season for those fall weddings. and we have some iffy weather heading into the -- part of the weekend for the north bay and then a better rain chance next week. here's a live look outside in emeryville this morning. it is a busy start. it's wednesday. we are going to coast right into the weekend. but we just have to get through this hot day with unhealthy air quality. it is a spare the air day. unhealthy air quality for the east bay as well as the south bay. the reason why is because we have high pressure. high pressure causes the air to sink. and whatever we throw up out there as far as pollution and all of that stuff, it just gets trapped in the valleys because of that. so we are having to breathe that in. as you try to help reduce the impact of all the pollution that's put out there, maybe you are on your way out to the pleasant hill bart station. it is going to be a cool start. mid 50s during the morning
6:18 am

6:19 am
and the clouds a little while longer. we are about to see a change in our weather pattern. we going to see the approach of an area of low pressure. look at the wpds that flow around low pressure. that will bring in a brisk ocean breeze and drop our temperatures of then it also causes the air to rise. that means more clouds and a little bit more turbulent weather. but this can tap into tropical moisture all the way on the other side of the pacific and bring that right into the bay area. i am thinking at this point our rain chances after seeing several runs of the computer models are looking good for monday into tuesday of next week. of course we will have more updates on that. then our temperatures go from upper 90s today down to 80 by friday. some upper 70s for the weekend. a slight chance of rain in the north bay. elsewhere all clear. and a more significant chance across the bay area for monday and tuesday. mike you are update both of our
6:20 am

that question is >> theedery poi program meant to solve and prevent gun cr question is called the national integrated ballistic missiles information network. it's like fingerprints or dna, but for guns, bullets, and shell casings. we found many big labs here in california don't use the program. you are faking a look behind the scenes at one of the atf labs where they can match ballistic missiles across city county and even state lines. none of our state labs participate in the program. you would admit when you don't put all the data isn not in the information there could be a

6:33 am
taking the advice of muni not to drive into san francisco today because of the closure at the transbay transit center. the bart official we have certainly seen a steady stream of riders. most have clippercards. but others have gone up to the ticket gateha indicating they are fhe advice of officials. if you and cross use the freemont street you are going to hit howard and right there you are going to hit a roadblock as the transbay transit center is closed down. avoid that area, you can take bart, ac transit, cal transor uber, lyft or ride sharing taxis or car pooling. especially because today is a
6:34 am
spare the air day, anything you can do to keep your car off the roads that would be helpful. it appears some people are heeding the advice, if you have to go over the bay bridge into the dont area, muni is advicing you not to take your car. >> to understand the closure at your own pace, our website has traffic updates photor center. it is 6:34 right now. new this morning, san jose appears to be fng promise to build 10,000 affordable housing units by the year 2022. the markry news reports so far the city has only built 64. the mayor introduced the housing a year ago. and nearly 600 units are under correction right now. and about 270 are in developing stages. the city's housing department actually say they have been working with less funding after the state eliminated local redevelopment agencies. 6:35 right now.

6:36 am
theyt diocese bought this agricultural land hoond me. the rectangle is the proposed high school site. murphy avenue is the west, barrett avenue is to the north and farmland to the east. the other shaded areas could see a border change as a result. i will walk through the civics lesson i had to get in researching this story testimony diocese owns the land but cannot develop it until it has city services like water and power. in order for that to happen the city has to annex some land to bring it into city limits. approval for annexation can only come from santa clara county's lasco, the lal agency formation commission which is a state-mandated agency intended to protect open space like this one and agricultural land, also prevent urban small and promote service efficiency. with that aim in mind lasco has said no to several prior
6:37 am
development plans. according to the city of morgan hill which plans to take t the again, they say there is no available plot of land within the city limits big enough for a campus and because the diocese is committing to preserving agricultural land. >> what we are offering is we want to keep morgan hill beautiful. what we are offering is a one to one mitigation. for every acreage of land for the children and students we are going to reserve another acre to keep it agricultural. >> i don't understand why it is not a slam dunk with the diocese offering the one to one ratio giving more than 30 acres back of its 60acres, et cetera going to build on. a lot of parents in the area are not sure why this hasn't been a given. >> reporter: well, the morgan hill city council did vote to take this issue to lasco.
6:38 am
they have one week to do that. it's due by october 3rd which is next wednesday. lasco won't comment on anything related to this plan until they see the plan. but they are likely to take up the issue at their december meeting. until then, this seems to be quite the talk of the town. in morganhill, today in the bay. >> a big plot of lands. and a lot of people who want to see it happen. 6:38 right now. affecting where you shop. a target inos contra costa just with a discrimination lawsuit. a deaf man says he applied for a clerk position at the target in antioch in to 14. he had an interpreter to communicate over the phone with the hiring team but hayes claims that human resource representatives hung up on him twice. he says he never got an interview and antioch hired seven non-disabled people. >> i am sure we are going to follow that one. interesting over there. meanwhile in the south bay
