tv Today in the Bay NBC September 19, 2019 5:00am-6:00am PDT
a live report moments away. and the latest addition to the san francisco zoo. what makes the birth of this monkey so special. "today in the bay" continues right now. no, it's not the new hairdo. good morning to you. thanks for joining us. i'm laura garcia. >> and i'm marcus washington. we'll get a look at that commute in a bit. first the weather this morning, kari. waking up it was nice and cool. i like the mornings like that. >> we enjoy the very seasonable weather. this is the way it's supposed to be. we do have hot weather in the forecast. we're still enjoying the cooldown. maybe going to the dublin b.a.r.t. station it will be in the mid-50s. a cool start to the day. leading into some 70s by noon. mike, you have a new crash in lanes on i-580. >> you showed dublin here, the dublin b.a.r.t. station and over to the bub lick station.
right where we typically see the backups clear, west 580, a crash will be a factor for folks in and out of tracy off 205 and 580. we're starting to get more. rid in to work on mass transit could be less expensive. bob redell this morning. discounts for people who have to use more than one transit system? >> reporter: correct, laura. let's say you hop on b.a.r.t. in walnut creek and head in and have to transfer to a local bus or ferry, you're not going to always get that discount or transfer credit. so the clipper executive board oversee the clipper card we sue for fares on our transit agencies. they want to change that. at a meeting yesterday the board authorized a study, a $600,000
study, to figure out how to integrate the fares of all 27 bay area transit agencies. right now each agency operates and sets fares independently of each other and they don'tlways offer discounts or transfers for commuters who use two or more for their ride in to work. the agencies do not recognize it's getting expensive for people who travel long distances throughout the region. for some of them, ridership is flat or down. they might be in their best interest to offer discounts in order to entice more riders. "the examiner" points out the fare integration exists in other parts in the north bay in which trips are extended for riders who transfer between golden gate transit and local buses. the executive board will take 12 to 14 months. that's $600,000 that will come from leftover -- residual funds from regional measure two.

the pacific ocean. when you see a clear sky, it could be high pressure which when it's parked over the same area can raise water temperatures while decreasing the wind that ka caucan cause a phenomenon called the blob. the top layer can be three degrees higher than normal and the wind doesn't allow for it to mix and cool. in a warming climate the blob could become more common which would be devastating to the marine ecosystem. several whales washed up across the bay area and scientists say one of the reasons might be the warmer water. as the ocean temperature rises, their food supply diminishes and the whales become malnourished. digital journalist jonathan bloom spoke with noaa scientists about the blob, why conditions in the arctic are also a

$15 million has been done. a showdown over something president trump said. >> what he said and who he said it to a mystery, scott. a mystery. marcus, we've gotten used to some very strange controversies coming out of washington. what we do know is a complaint was made by a high level intelligence official to this man, the inspector general of intelligence. a whistleblower report. "the washington post" says the inspector general was so disturbed by what he heard he alerted the house intelligence committee and will talk to them in private today on capitol hill. "the washington post" was the first to report this but nbc has confirmed parts of these reports. there's lots we don't know. we don't know who the whistleblower is. we don't know what the president was speaking with or who, rather.
we don't know what was said that raised the whistleblower's concern. to sum this up, an intelligence official was so disturbed by what he heard the president say to a foreign leader, he went to his inspector general, filed an official report. that inspector general so disturbed he tells congress. congress so disturbed they've subpoenaed the director of national intelligence. this is an extraordinary if not mysterious development likely without precedent in u.s. history. secretary of state mike pompeo said iran committed a, quote, act of war after attacking oil production with drones or missiles. iran denies involvement. an unusual accusation, president trump calls it a total violation is a way of finding a federal
violation for a local problem. the streets of san francisco but in a way the bay belongs to the feds. our thom jensen will be reporting on this coming up. mayor london breed points out san francisco sewers are integrated. the sanitary sewers are connected. the needles if they did wash in would never make it to the bay. we are watching what is happening even if we know so little about it. we'll tweet about it, too. you can follow me at scott mcgrew. >> thanks, scott. 5:49 for you right now. we're a little more than a month away. do you know what your kids will be dressed up as halloween? >> no. the debate continues. >> i have a suggestion later. >> okay, good. looking forward to that. only 41 days left. great america in santa clara is gearing up forts halloween haunt. >> two, one, action. got to get ready for the part. 500 people in training mode to be monsters.
