5:08 am
ashore to have that kind of impact. >> reporter: shelters have opened across the potential strike zone and evacuation orders are in place now from florida through the carolinas. more than 1 million residents told to move to higher ground, as dorian starts to slowly move in. if it follows the current forecast and begins to move, we should see dorian off the coast here sometime late wednesday into thursday morning. jay gray, nbc news, savannah. >> this live picture was just made available to us in the newsroom, jensen beach in florida, you can see some of the storm's effects starting to reach that area. the winds not too strong at this point, but it is a category 3 storm and still could be very dangero dangerous. we'll track that throughout morning. 5:08, menlo park search and rescue team preparing for deployment as the hurricane takes aim. these are photos of the crew getting their equipment ready to go. the fire chief says the team is still waiting to officially be

5:10 am
we'll talk about some cooling ahead in that forecast and mike, you're taking a look at the bay bridge. >> kari, we have signs the vacation days are over and we're back to the commute. it's only 5:09 and we have all these lanes filling in. just after all the cash lanes opened, everything filled in. that tends to be the case early in the commute as folks return from a vacation weekend, like a lot of folks seemed to have taken thursday and friday last week off. there is the backup but no problems through contra coa county. a tiny bit of build at bay point and the crash on the grid should be cleared at willow pass road. everything else on the freeway moves smoothly but i want to take you back down to the south bay, we have this closure that continues. south 101 the off-ramp story road is closed because of what i'm told say deadly crash involving a pedestrian, so the investigation continues. westbound story road, this direction coming over here, over toward mclaughlin side and there's a closure past the freeway, so i'm going to say it affects the on-ramps as well
5:11 am
even though we don't have that detail. use tully on or off of the freeway you're completely clear of the problems and the access and we'll continue to follow this investigation. for now, avoid the story road on and off ramp from the westbound side of story road. guys, back to you. >> thanks, mike. >> 5:11 now. a big problem for tesla owners. a software issue located nowhere near the engine that kept some owners from using their cars. and also ahead, new information on the bizarre action from the texas government in saturday's rampage, seconds before he started shooting. the markets back open back up this morning. looks like a tough tuesday. we'll take a look when "today in the bay" continues. we are here to discuss jessie's online time.

good tuesday morning. time to get up and back to work. right now at 5:14, let's get you out the door in martinez with a look at our temperature trend, going to be in the low 60s, a few more clouds this morning, but clearing out, and reaching into the mid 80s by early afternoon. our trend will be for it to cool off throughout the rest of the week, so i'll have a look at that forecast in less than five minutes. >> right now as you'd expect, palo alto moves smoothly. there's highway 101 on the peninsula, highway 101 in the south bay affected bit deadly crash on surface streets. we'll bring you the latest an the updates from chp. very good morning. if you are going to work for the first time this week, it will probably feel like monday all day but it's tuesday and traders have got a bad case of the
5:15 am
tuesdays. the markets are expected to open markedly over. sunday september 1st new tariffs on china took effect and china added mortar i haves on us. now because it's a new month, we get the jobs numbers on the first friday of the month, that's this friday. we've seen a slowing in job growth, but it's still pretty solid. the other thing that's probably weighing on investors, september is traditionally the worst month for stocks. there are various theories why this is, none really hold up but in general, since they invented the dow 30 in the 1800s, they lose about 1% in september. president trump meanwhile wants to remind you that the markets are doing much better, since he was elected in november of 2016, the stock market is up over 50%, he says, then he goes on to criticize the economist paul krugman. president trump's claim the market is up more than 50% is easy enough to fact check. let's do it. here is the numbers when he was elected, here are the numbers
5:16 am
today, and here are your percentage changes. the president is one-third right. nasdaq is up 53%. the broadest and best measure of the market is the s&p 500, and honestly, these are great numbers. there's really no reason to inflate them. they're good returns, as they stand. as for krugman, president trump is still angry at him for something he wrote in the "new york times" after the election. he is an economist and a columnist for the "new york times," won a nobel prize but president trump is angry when he wrote in the editorial section saying because of trump's victory, we're probably looking at a global recession with no end in sight. now you can win a nobel prize and still be a thousand percent wrong, which krugman was, but president trump continues to take this very personally. >> we know that he can hold a grudge. >> he can hold a grudge. >> thanks, scott. >> 5:16 for you right now. the follow-up for you the tesla app is back up and running again, after it was down for hours. so the issue if you didn't know
5:17 am
kept a lot of people out of their cars because drivers can actually use that app as a key to get into their tesla, but because of the outage, they had no access, unless they had their key with them. one pleasanton woman told us she had to order uber to get her home. the outage lasted about four hours yesterday. tesla is not saying if it knows what caused the issue. >> that's a new excuse for your boss. new video shows germany's first giant panda cubs, thoh, g! >> it is so cute. >> they're not. you guys are so mean. berlin zoo says the mother is doing a wonderful job looking after her pink -- yeah, put my face up there. >> the reaction. >> the pink twins are doing all right. they of course bear no resemblance to the cute pan $, black and white ones, i'm not looking at them. as for the gender, nothing has
5:18 am
been announced although the zookeepers already have a good idea. it's not like they have fur covering. >> some babies, humans, when they come out they're not so beautiful. >> your child is beautiful. >> when you first come out. >> pink and squishy so -- >> gummi bears. >> tiny baby pandas. >> before they get the fuzz. >> you have to get some in here for you one day. oakland zoo, take us a new panda. >> you can't make me look anymore. >> they're like flopping around. >> oh, gross. i'm a good person. those are gross. give me some puppies all day long. >> no baby pandas. >> not clearing the panda shelters. >> i am not looking like a nice person right now. >> kris, so funny. i'll move on to weather so they won't pop that video back up anymore. we'll show it to you later. here is a live look outside.
5:19 am
>> that's much better looking. >> in san francisco, it is foggy, completely foggy right now, but we know this will also help cool us off even for the inland areas. as you get ready to head out the door and yes, kids, it's back to school. so the kids probably aren't up this early but if you're up and getting them ready, it's going to be in the low 60s in antioch, starting out for the school day, and then warming up into the mid-70s around lunch time, up to about 87 degrees, so lunch will probably be outside, and then as you head back to pick them up, it's going to be quite warm out there. we're still looking at some warm temperatures in the south county, with a high of 90 in gilroy today. 85 in pimilpitas. low 90s for the east bay. mid-70s for san mateo. san francisco staying in the 60s and the north bay reaching up to about 85 in santa rosa. as we look at what's happening here, we are going to start to see a boost in humidity for tomorrow, some monsoonal moisture sparking up showers over parts of the sierra and as
5:20 am
we look at our forecast, it will be a little bit more in the way of cloud cover. by the end of the week we're starting to see coastal clouds moving in, as the humidity drops, and temperature also ds drop, too. upper 80s today, a little bit more humidity tomorrow, still pretty warm but a little bit of a cooldown by the end of the week and continuing into the weekend, with san francisco staying in the 60s, with a lot more fog. now mike you have a traffic alert in san jose? >> kari, we do, on san jose city streets. the freeways throughout the south bay silicon valley are just fine but your access to story road again continues to be closed for an indeterminant amount of time, likely a couple of hours. i'm told it was a deadly crash on story road off the freeway. this pruish park on the east side of the freeway and traveling west the story off-ramp toward philippe, the stretch from the park to philippe is closed in the westbound direction for the next probably couple hours to do the
5:21 am
investigation, a pedestrian was hit and killed at some point overnight and so the investigation is there. a lot of folks talking to san jose police department, so lots of information, but this is a scene they have to continue with. tully road we're on to highway 101 that's your clearest route in the area. the rest of the bay an easy drive for speed sensors. a live look over here at the bay bridge toll plaza, does show you much more traffic heading across toward san francisco, the metering lights likely on even as we speak, because that happened in the last five minutes. back to you. >> thanks, mike. coming up, a routine flight becomes a life or death drama. see how men who had never flown before suddenly were faced with the ultimate test, land the plane himself. what he did to save his own life and the life of his unconscious pilot. first, you can always find our team on social media, scott budman gets to stay up later than we do. he got to share this picture, 19% of the moon from silicon vall valley. follow nbc bay area on facebook,

5:26 am
and then when the help of an air traffic controller came through, he actually landed that plane in one piece. >> this is the situation that you've been learning in front of, and you need to react, a fight or flight, that was it, adrenalin. >> sylvester says he had studied a lot of aviation before taking his first lesson. there's no reason why the instructor collapsed, but he is said to be in serious condition. that's a scary situation to be up there, taking your first lesson. >> right, and thankfully he did know, i mean he had read stuff before and he didn't have any hands-on experience. >> right. >> good for him. >> i remember taking my first helicopter ride, and i can't imagine if something happened to the pilot. >> no way, jose. not at all. >> glad they landed safely. 5:26 for you this morning. coming up, we are following developments on the devastating southern california boat fire. more than two dozen people are now confirmed dead. several more still missing, but

5:31 am
reopening. tully road say little bit to the south, that is clear on and off-ramps as well as the access through the area so that is a good option and too early for us to see much of a commute for the south bay, which would be in the northbound direction anyway. the commute is overall great but westbound story road closed between knox and flee play. we have the backup at the bay bridge toll plaza. clearly from this shot the vacation is over. >> it didn't look like this yesterday. as you are headed out in palo alto quite a few people on highway 101, a few clouds and a cooler start to the day with low 60s. we're going to feel that breeze throughout the day, with some low 70s, headed into noon. we'll get a look at all of our microclimates and the cooler air in the forecast, that's coming up in a few minutes. >> thank you, kari. now we want to get to the latest in southern california, from that boat tragedy. the bodies of 25 people have been recovered, nine still unaccounted for and there's a lot of questions about what happened on that boat. >> "today in the bay's" sharon katsuda joins us live from the

newsroom with the latest on the search. they're still looking for nine people, is this a recovery for still search? >> sadly they're still calling it a search but they're recovering as much as they can. it's not looking good, though, this morning. the search continued overnight for the others missing, but the coast guard says the search is very difficult since the boat is 60 feet underwater. no official word yet from the coast guard but we've learned pcs charter school in santa cruz sent out a letter saying two students and a parent of one of the students was aboard the vessel. we've also learned the identity of a victim who was from the bay area, christy finstad lived in santa cruz, instructor with the national association of underwater instructors. we're told she loved adventure and had thousands of dives under her belt. so many other families are waiting to hear if their loved ones were on the "conception" that became an inferno on the waters off santa cruz island. at least 25 people died, five
5:33 am
crew members escaped, two crew members suffered minor injuries. the coast guard says several bodies have been located on the ocean floor but they have not been recovered due to unsafe conditions. the coast guard says the boast "conception" was in compliance before this tragedy, so there are still many unanswered questions as to what caused the fire. >> i know i've been on "conception" many times and a lot of people look and say the crew didn't do anything to the people down below. there's a small staircase that goes down below. if it's engulfed in flames there's no way the crew could get down in time to help them. i know the ship. >> craft called "the great escape" helped rescue the crew members. the husband and wife on the "the great escape" crew members told them some of the divers were celebrating birthdays and included families on board. as for finstad the victim out of
