tv Today in the Bay NBC December 1, 2018 7:00am-8:01am PST
good morning. it is saturday, december 1st. can you believe it? here's a live look outside from communications hill. thanks so much for joining us. i'm kira klapper. vianey arana has a look at our microclimate forecast. it looks gloomy out there and i saw a lot of rain on my drive in this morning. >> definitely, if you were driving overnight kind of when we come in early, right now the
majority of the tri-valley and east bay is getting a lot of those showers that were pushing through overnight of the you can see on our satellite radar within the past couple of hours, this showcases how that rain pushes through portions of san francisco, but this is what our current satellite stormranger is looking like. you can see a couple showers in through san francisco, but heavy, heavy rain in through san ra rone and the livermore area. san jose right now taking a break from the rain but we've got light showers that push through palo alto, los gatos right now which means that line of shower you see could make its way over toward san jose, so still tracking those showers to remain on and off over the next couple of hours. i'll take you thorough that timeline and let you know when the rain is supposed to make an exit. >> i need a break in the rain so
i can get my christmas tree. >> we do. he was a president, a war hero, a cia director, a vice president, the pat tri ark of a political dynasty. he passed away last night at the age of 94 and we pay tribute to his seven decades of service to america. the 41st president of the united states died yesterday after years of failing health and just seven months after his wife's death. his legacy, one of lifelong commitment to his country and the family he dearly loved. here's jessica aguirre. >> i can report to the nation, aggression is defeated, the war is over. >> reporter: it was the peak of a long career parked by high standings in the political and business arenas. born into wealth and privilege, the son of a u.s. senator, bush still joined the navy on his
18th birthday and became its youngest pilot during world war ii. winning the distinguished flying cross after being shot down over the pacific ocean. following the war, bush married barbara pierce, entered yale university and after graduating moved his young family to texas where he was elected to the house of representatives but lost two bids to be u.s. senator. he did, however, succeed in several high level appointments including director of the cia. >> we want bush! >> reporter: following the failed effort at the republican nomination in 1980, he was named ronald reagan's running mate and in 1988 bush won the presidency but a faltering economy shook american faith in bush that led to losing re-election in 1992 to bill clinton. bush then headed back to houston devoting time to his presidential library and staying active, even parachuting from an
airplane on his birthdays. he saw two sons become governors and he looked on as george w. became the 43rd president. they raised humanitarian aids for victims of the tsunami in 2004 and in 2005 for hurricane katrina. in 2010, president obama honored bush with the presidential medal of freedom for a life of service to his country that by that time spanned nearly seven decades. but the former president suffered heartbreak when barbara, his wife of 73 years passed away. he mourned with family, friends and former presidents. >> that was jessica aguirre for us this morning. one of bush's many sons, george w. bush broke the news saying in part, jeb, kneel, marvin and i are saddened to announce that after 94 remarkable years our dear dad has died. george h.w. bush was a man of
the highest character and the best dad a son or daughter could ask for. the flag outside the white house is flying at half-staff along with flags across the country. president trump also released a statement from the g20 summit in argentina saying, through his essential authenticity, disarming wit and unwavering commitment to faith, family and country, president bush inspired generations of his fellow american to public service to be, in his words, a thousand points of light illuminating the greatness, hope and opportunity of america to the world. the 41st president is being remembered this morning for all of his accomplishments and one former aide who lives here in the bay area is remembering the former president's benevolence. shawn walsh was deputy press secretary through bush senior's four year presidential term and during his two terms as vice president. he now lives in oakland. walsh tells us he will best remember the bushes for being just as comfortable with royalty
as they were with regular folks and that includes all members of the white house staff. we spoke with him by phone last night. >> you were family. you were invited in for a cup of cocoa and a holiday dinner. there was no one that was too small or no one that was too big to get personal attention and i will tell you, that's a quality of humanity that in this political environment is sorely lacking. >> the former president didn't visit the bay area often but one of his most memorable trips was made back in 1989, president bush visited san francisco following the earthquake. this is the photo of him from the "san francisco chronicle" where you can see him surveying the damage. we are still waiting to hear about funeral arrangements from bush's office, the 41st president is expected to lie in state in the u.s. capitol later this week and be honored in texas where he made his mark early in politics. be sure to stay with us for continuing coverage throughout the weekend as we learn more.

entered the u.s. illegal more than 20 years ago. she needed special government permission. we spoke with sanchez and her attorney by phone. >> i'm very grateful for everybody who did what they did to help me. >> on this temporary visa there's only so long she can stay in the u.s. and then she'll have to go back to mexico. >> on monday, sanchez will meet with immigration authorities in mexico city. she tells us she plans to be back here in the bay area before december 15th. it is 7:08. we have much more ahead on "today" in the bay. the driver suspected of being drunk behind the wheel. how chp officers say they outsmarted the technology to stop the car and arrest that driver? and rain here means fresh snow in the sierra, so many people are excited for so many different reasons. i am a family man.

"today in the bay" has more on the unusual arrest. >> reporter: the man in this video is taking a field sobriety test for california highway patrol officers because they say they found him sleeping in the driver seat as his tesla model s was going 70 miles an hour on highway 101 in redwood city early friday morning. >> approximately 3:37, one of
our units is driving southbound on 101. >> reporter: chp says those officers couldn't get the tesla driver to pull over so they drove in front of him and started slowing the patrol car down. chp officers think the driver may have been using the tesla's autopilot feature because of what happened next. >> the car started slowing down behind it. >> reporter: other tesla owners know how that happens because they have autopilot too. it doesn't look like there was any front-end damage to the tesla when the vehicle was being towed away. a smokipokesperson for tesla wi not comment on the incident but the tesla drivers' autopilot features are not meant to replace the driver. the sleeping driver they arrested and charged on suspicion of dui is the vice chair of the planning commission
and cofounder of an upscale hotel chain. just shy of 7:13. we do have much more ahead on "today in the bay." more than two feet of snow in the sierra but the slopes aren't the only spots buzzing with activity. >> our very own stormranger mobile doppler radar is picking up and scanning. we're expecting to see this cold front continue to sweep on through with more rain. i'll break down the timeline for you coming up. take a live lookf

action. he is wanted for robbing a bank on thursday. according to police, he gave the teller a note and demanded money. this may not be his first heist. police say they recognize this same man and he may be connected to two other recent bank robberies. take a look if you can of this side by side comparison, the left, and the right, a san jose bank robbery earlier this month. you can see the similarities in the thief's hat, wig and jacket. the search is on for the person who vandalized a neighborhood christmas tree in a oakville neighborhood. they found the tree chopped up, painted on and practically destroyed. the person was caught right there on surveillance video. so far no arrests have been made. back to the weather now, some fresh powder is a happy sight for skiers and snowboarders and businesses in the tahoe area. we have a look at downtown trekky from last night. the sierra doesn't see heavy
snow in november but this year's been a little different with four or five feet and counting. "today in the bay's" sam brock is up there with what it means for resorts and local busines s businesses. >> its kicking off the winter. >> reporter: its the straw that stirs the drink of many tahoe based businesses, snow that gets people excited for the season and stoked about places like trucky on a friday night. >> its expensive. if you're coming here from europe to go skiing or if you're coming from new york to go skiing with your family, its a lot of money and so you have a choice whether you can go to colorado or utah or california. >> reporter: and don't think skiers like granville shasta don't discriminate when it comes to the good stuff newly arriving at squaw valley. >> everything's better on the mountain when there's snow on it. no comparison. >> when we have fresh snow like this and we groom it, its
phenomenal. its beautiful to ski on. >> reporter: public relations director notes that a good november snowfall can spark serious interest. >> we're in a strong spot right now of the we're seeing more and more bookings pick up. people need to see that natural snow. that's what gets them fired up. >> reporter: sam brock, nbc bay area news. what are the odds, sam, hit the slopes, like stayed up there overnight. >> you know what? we got to find these things out. >> we'll have to investigate. let's check in with our weekend forecast. >> its looking good for the slopes but we're still seeing wet roads. please be careful. we got that cold front sweeping through and that's bringing some pounding rain, at least a portion through the bay area. this is what san francisco looks like right now. i want you to notice its gusty out there. 26-miles-per-hour winds right now, gusting also pretty breezy in downtown san jose at about 48
degrees. they've got that nice christmas in the park set up. its a soggy morning but it should clear out by the afternoon. let me take you to the satellite radar right now. this is our overall satellite where you can see we have some showers push through. now a lot of that is through dublin. for that we're going to send it over to our stormranger it is scanning on top of the mountain. you can see the higher resolution really showcasing the heavier pockets of rain pushing in through san ramon. if i move it down towards portions of san jose, you can see we've got pockets here and there along 680. if you're driving through there, you'll catch the occasional or heavy downpour even along portions of 280 and los gatos. we are expecting a pretty breezy to windy day. if you've got any of that patio furniture, anything that could potentially fly away, you want to go ahead and either bring it
inside or tie it down pretty secure. santa rosa 26-miles-per-hour winds. we remain pretty breezy by 10:30. about 9:30 p.m., we're still going to keep those gusty conditions especially for the mountain tops and the higher elevation areas and into the north bay. san francisco remains breezy even down through san jose as well. things calm down overnight as that cold front makes its exit into early sunday morning and that's when we see a better conditions in terms of clearer skies and dryer conditions. your microclimate high for today is seasonal, nice and cool, only in the mid-50s topping out at about 56 degrees for san jose. 56 for oakland, 53 for san francisco and then again by the evening hours, we should begin to dry out. if you're going to be heading out to lake tahoe, though, remember to check the road conditions. i do believe chains are still required if you're driving up there. they're still expecting to see heavy downpours and also additional snowfall, upwards of
four inches additionally on top of what they've already seen so far. this is what it looks like. live picture right now. its about 26 degrees. how's that for a magical start to december? i would love to wake up to those christmas lights and the snow, but that drive, not so much. we'll see that cold front swoosh on through and by 11:00, 12:00, you can see just very light pockets of occasional showers here and there over the next seven days, though, we'll stay dry through tomorrow and monday. best chance to get your christmas tree going here because by tuesday we get another system that moves in and that other system that's going to be moving in will continue to bring some rain into wednesday so its a wet week. the rain's final here. back to you. >> we need the rain but i need that window tomorrow to go get my tree. thanks. it is 7:21. still ahead on "today in the bay," giving tuesday was earlier this week. it was a chance to give back. a popular bay area teen found their own unique way to pay it
black friday and cyber monday... earlier this week was giving tuesday, a day when after black friday and cyber monday people are urged to donate to their favorite organizations. our next story is about an organization that came up with the unique way to give. "today in the bay's" garvin thomas shows us how the san jose earthquakes chose to give back to the community. >> reporter: that doesn't mean however they haven't found a way to be a winning team. sharing is a big part of the game of soccer with just one ball and so many players, success is all about working together, but what if you had one ball for every player, for every member of the organization, well, then you could have success of a much different kind. the kind dreamed up by san jose
earthquakes director of community relations marissa silver. >> we're a soccer team, we can give back with health and wellness, what's the most simple thing we're here with every day is a soccer ball. >> reporter: so she gave one soccer ball to every member of the quake's organization from ceo to youth players and let them choose who to give it to, but not just any soccer ball, the virtually indestructible kind created by berkeley based one world play project. >> this is the one world's football. >> reporter: the ball specifically designed for those who constantly replacing punctured or torn balls is a practical or too pricey. >> it would be really special to see just who they chose and why and be able to not only follow where the soccer balls ended up, but how they chose to give that soccer ball too. >> reporter: some went to south
africa and mozambique and one to a homeless shelter. >> its just like giving someone an opportunity to be like -- be a kid, just have fun. >> reporter: in all, some 400 soccer balls are making their way to grateful players around the world ready to score goals in more ways than one. i had to ask marissa who she was donating her ball to, she said its still in the trunk of her car. she's waiting to find the right person and on the spur of the moment, she'll make her donation. >> love that. a unique way to give back. its 7:26. we have much more ahead on "today in the bay." our coverage continues of the passing of the 41st president of the united states. a former aid to george h.w. bush tells us what he'll remember most and it has nothing to do with politics. plus, the ground shook and

now to our other top story, that 7.0 earthquake that shook alaska yesterday. it created a huge crack in the earth. major roadways completely buckled. president trump has already approved an emergency declaration. the quake hit around 8:30 yesterday morning, about eight miles north of anchorage, alaska's most populus city. no deaths or injuries reported so far. its an unsettling reminder that the reality of a big quake, that big and powerful could strike here at home at any moment.

now pushing through san ramon, portions through livermore and i-80. definitely expect to see moderate to heavy pockets on occasion as you're making your way through. we've got another line of showers pushing down through the fremont/palo alto area into los gatos, san jose not really catching a lot of that rain right now, as that cold front swept through overnight and into the early morning hours we're expecting the winds to linger and stick around, breezy to windy. look at santa rosa. san francisco 20 miles per hour and it'll even be windy down through the south bay as well. the winds will hang on all day long till about 10:00 p.m. you can see santa rosa still fairly strong, down through san jose as well. it'll rain pretty consistent into the afternoon. as far as the winds overnight, you can see they tame off as the cold front swept through by about 7:30 the winds won't be a factor. your microclimate highs for today will be in the 50s and
we're going to remain fairly cool. this is going to set us up for a week of mid-50s, low 50s but very, very cold overnight lows. again, if you're going to be heading out to the sierra, we do have that sierra warning up there because the conditions are still pretty dangerous. look at squaw creek lake tahoe. this is a live picture. this is what it looks like rite now in that area. definitely please make sure to drive safe. by 9:30 we'll still showers pushing through san jose, pleasanton, half moon bay, palo alto. if i take it to 11:00 a.m., you can see the majority of that rain clears out from the oakland/san francisco area but the cloud cover will very much linger. we'll get some occasional showers here and there through morgan hill till about 12:30 and we really see that rain clear out beyond that point. so after the mid-afternoon/late afternoon into the evening hours we should die out making way for a much drier sunday but still portions will see cloudy skies
in through monday and then on tuesday, we'll see another system swoop on in and that's expected to bring more rain to the bay area with heavier rain expected for wednesday. so do not watch your vehicles as we head into tomorrow even though it may seem like things will dry out. back to you. >> thanks. its 7:48. still ahead on "today in the bay," half a billion hotel guests now at risk. the massive data breach at marriott and starwood properties. breaches in history.
federal a welcome back. now to one of the biggest data breaches in history. federal agents are investigating the marriott hotel chain. this comes after the hotel announce the a data hack into its reservation database. the hack may have been exposed personal information of up to 500 million guests. marriott says personal information, even passport numbers, addresses and credit card information may have been stolen. news of the attack caused the stock to fall nearly 6% yesterday. that data breach mirrors many other recent hack attacks but chris chmura found one significant difference. he joins us with that story. >> reporter: good morning, everyone. what stands out to me is that they got a treasure trove of information, the hackers got every ingredient they need for i.d. theft. there is good news, though. the response is different and may be better. when other companies have disclosed big data breaches they've typically given consumers like you free credit
monitoring services. credit monitoring gives you an alert that a thief has opened and account in your name. its helpful but too late to stop the crooks. starwood is giving guests something new, something we're going to call identity monitoring. they can sign up for a free service that basically alerts you if you're information is being bought or sold on the darkweb and that might allow you to quickly freeze your credit file and shutdown the thieves before they use your good name in bad faith. if you stayed at a starwood hotel like w, westin, sheraton, four points over the past few years, please consider registering for that free service. i have posted a link to it on my facebook page. we've also added it to our website, nbcbayarea.com/responds. back to you. >> thanks. it is 7:52, lockheed martin
