we'll have a live report from the scene next. plus the impeachment trial kicks into high gear today with opening arguments. up next, in a live report, what we can expect in the days ahead. and all new overnight, leaders of the south bay city make up their minds on whether to allow a new chick-fil-a restaurant to move in. the decision all coming up in a live report as "today in the bay" continues right now. and a very good wednesday morning to you. half way through that workweek. thanks so much for joining us. i'm laura garcia. >> does it feel good. >> it does. >> i'm marcus washington. mike will have a look at the commute in a bit but let's talk to meteorologist kari hall about the forecast for today. >> you were asking for some sunshine and there is going to be a little bit of it today. but the rain is out of here. and so we're going to see the rain moving away from the bay area but the clouds lingering. and that is what we're seeing as we take a look at our wide view of the satellite this morning. just in case you're traveling. but here in the bay area, heading out for school, in danville, roads are still wet
6:01 am
and it looks a little damp but we'll see our temperatures in the 50s. and a little bit more of the peeks of sunshine today. mike, you're tracking that police activity in livermore. >> i am. in fact we have a live look out here at airway boulevard, bob redell is following this and an arrest has been made and we hear it is an officer-involved shooting, the latest into the newsroom. in livermore off of 580. this is the reason why airway off-ramp has been closed and remains closed. he has a live report coming up. i want to show you the rest of the commute. that is a surface street and you'll use el charo and loop back. most of the freeways moving smoothly. a new crash around highway 4 causing more slowing and the bay bridge toll plaza has the lights on but we'll talk about the south bay coming up. breaking news in contra costa county where deputies are surrounding a neighborhood and in san pablo for hours. >> pete suratos has been live at
6:02 am
the scene for us trying to get some updates. still pretty active out there, pete? >> reporter: yeah, definitely. still an active scene in san pablo at o 'hatch and o'toole drive. contra costa sheriffs were still on the scene. we saw them bring plastic bags into the vehicle you see there. i'm not sure exactly how that is connected to what is going on but you could still see some very active scene. we'll show our viewers the video from this morning. the s.w.a.t. officers were here on the scene and now we were told that that activity is on o'toole way so that is just up the block there at a home in that area. and we're still working to get information if they're looking for a suspect. this is a barricade situation if anyone is hurt at this point we don't have that information. i did give a call to dispatch and they couldn't provide us with much information. but with we know this started overnight. back out here live to the scene,
6:03 am
you see a sheriffs deputies there. they did bring some plastic bags into that incident command vehicle that you see there. obviously a big scene if you have these vehicles out here. of course we'll continue to monitor things and give you an updates as they come in. reporting live, pete suratos, for "today in the bay." >> pete, thank you. well developing on capitol hill, a historic day ahead as senate impeachment arguments begin later this morning. the senate went late into the night last night in a marathon 13-hour session. hammering out the rules for the trial. "today in the bay's" tracie potts explain what is next in the phase of the trial and what it would look like for us. tracie. >> reporter: hi, marcus. good morning, everyone. the rule that they stayed up late to set and also some of the ideas from democrats that were rejected, they wanted to bring in more witness and more evidence. that is not happening right now. but the trial gets underway in earnest today which democrats
6:04 am
present their case and we're already hearing from president trump overseas, his thoughts on where this might go. >> it was nothing wrong. >> reporter: president trump in switzerland this morning. >> i was very proud of the job he did. >> reporter: applauding his legal team and going off on democrats. >> jerrold nadler, i've known him a long time. he's a sleaze bag. >> reporter: as the impeachment trial getting underway in washington. >> it is a total hoax. it is a disgrace. >> reporter: this afternoon democrats present their case against president trump under revised rules that give each side 24 hours over three days, not two. avoiding middle of the night arguments. >> a lot of people are asleep right now. all over the country. because it's midnight. >> reporter: the handwritten changes include accepting the house record of evidence and witnesses. but democrats want more. >> a fair trial requires witnesses. in order to provide the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. >> this all supposedly started
6:05 am
because of a whistle-blower. where is that whistle-blower? >> the senate is adjourned. >> reporter: debate ended early this morning after the senate shot down 11 attempts by democrats to subpoena documents and witnesses. including white house chief of staff mick mulvaney and former national security adviser john bolton. the president's legal team previewing their defense. >> abuse of power is not a crime. and so you don't need witnesses. >> reporter: under the new schedule the trump defense is likely to begin on saturday. tracie potts, nbc news, washington. >> now be sure to stay with nbc news as the impeachment trial kicks off today. our coverage including -- will include, rather, several special reports throughout the day. new fears about the spread of the coronavirus after the first u.s. case is confirmed. the virus has infected hundreds in china and caused at least nine deaths. yesterday the cdc confirmed a case in washington state. the patient recently returned
6:06 am
from china. the center of the outbreak. we have new video to show you of people in china. they've been buying a lot of masks there. many have canceled travel plans for the chinese new year. the cdc said it is now screening passengers for the virus at two more airports, atlanta and chicago. screenings are already taking place in san francisco, l.a. and new york. happening today, the fate of a cash-strapped south bay school district may come into a little more focus. advisers will recommend two schools be closed in the evergreen school district. a public input session is scheduled for today. it is still possible a third school could be on the chopping block. the district is facing lower enrollment numbers. a final decision is not expected before next month. well campbell leaders go into a late-night decision about the fate of a proposed chick-fil-a restaurant. "today in the bay's" kris sanchez is live from the
6:07 am
location. and kris, is it fries and nuggets or peace and quiet in the neighborhood? >> reporter: double that order of peace and quiet. the neighbors here in this neighborhood got the city council to shut down the idea of a drive-thru here at this location. if you're familiar with campbell, this is where the denny's is on south bascom avenue not too far from the prune yard. they were proprosing a restaurant here at south bascom and east campbell but opponents said it would draw 2,000 cars a day so some foodies will be left wanting. >> we're going to have serious issues with parking, serious issues with traffic and serious issues with pedestrian bike safety. >> i wouldn't mind having a chick-fil-a here. i think they need a little bit more eatery options. >> reporter: so at this other location on your screen about a mile away, vocal residents with concerns offer traffic and noise shut down an in-n-out between
6:08 am
highway 17 and winchester and many that case restaurant representatives also lost an appeal. we have yet to see whether whether or not there is a decision on this chick-fil-a on south bascom and the vote came with the approval of the planning commission, usually the planning commission said yes and the council says yes. so this is a break. kris sanchez, "today in the bay.." >> something we'll be looking to. and 6:08, become-goers beware for sneaker waves. dangerous waves and rip curbs are expected to last until 9:00 this morning. never turn your back on the ocean. because they could sneak up on you and take you under. and that is the case this time of the year. any time that we have storms rolling through, turns up the waters and then we have the sneaker waves and never turn
6:09 am
your back to the water. here is a live look outside in san francisco. it is still raining lightly and the roads are still wet but the rain is moving out. you don't need the umbrella if you're about to head out of the door. we'll see a mix of sun and clouds today. temperatures in the lower 50s leading into mid-50s by early this afternoon. and the city we're reaching 57. san jose up to 61. a little bit more sunshine compared to yesterday. but don't expect it to be sunny all day. we'll talk about what is ahead in the forecast coming up in a few minutes. and mike now you're tracking a crash in hayward. i am. and that is the only issue and i would say the only one on the map. i want to mention the south bay. 87 moves smoothly and so does 280 and 101. we typically see much more traffic at this time, 6:09 in the morning. so a good start. watch the slick roadways as well. hayward slowing out of san leandro and toward industrial.
6:10 am
there may be debris in the left lanes so watching for a traffic break. none scheduled so far. and metering lights are on and there a crash blocking more lanes and a delay between sfo and san bruno and right now 10-minute delay for b.a.r.t. this is a question for you this morning. are you willing to pay more for climate-friendly food? think about it. because up next we'll talk about. where diners will see a surcharge to grow healthier and cleaner foods. you remember jeff bezos got his phone hacked well there are strange new allegations that could affect our own dpoft. we'll take a look coming up. a baby's first taste of ice cream. it has everybody screaming for more. more of this video coming up next on "today in the bay." >> yum, yum, yum. i'm tom steyer and i approve this message.
6:11 am
6:12 am
climate is the number 1 priority. i would declare a state of emergency on day 1. congress has never passed an important climate bill, ever. this is a problem that continues to get worse. i've spent a decade fighting and beating oil companies... stopping pipelines... stopping fossil fuel plants, ensuring clean energy across the country. how are we going to pull this country together? we take on the biggest challenge in history, we save the world and do it together.
6:13 am
it is 6:13 on this wednesday morning. a live look outside in walnut creek. it is still cloudy, it is soggy and we'll see clouds throughout much of the morning but then as we go through the day, every now and then the sun will peek out as our temperatures reach the upper 50s. if you have weekend outdoor plans check in with the forecast in less than five minutes. i'll be checking. right now checking the san mateo bridge. much more traffic over the last few minutes after the crash
6:14 am
we're tracking in hayward and we'll talk about this and talk about this if you are driving out this that area. well good morning. very happy wednesday. e-bay is going to cut some jobs in san jose. we're seeing dribs and drabs of this. watch for that. boeing once again pushing back the date where it expects to start flying that 737 max again. well into summer. broader markets fail on concern over the coronavirus. this is a case reported in the united states. the president trump is in switzerland at the davos conference and not concerned about the disease coming to america, said, quote, we totally have it under control and we have a plan. san francisco based cruz automation unveiled a driverless car. it will be used as a taxi. uber has a similar plan. general motors bought cruz a few years ago for just under a billion dollars. that is paid off for gm. the saudi government this morning is denying any involvement in the hack of jeff
6:15 am
bezos. you remember he had his phone hacked, "the national enquirer" threatened to publish embarrassing pictures and details of an affair. the guardian said the crown prince mohammed bin salman may have been directly involved. the newspaper reports mbs as he's known is video chatting with bezos when the pile was sent and after that chat bezos's phone up loaded gigabytes of data to somewhere. the saudi government called this allegation absurd. our intelligence agency said he was also behind the murder of a washington post writer. and we know mbs regularly talked to jared kushner in the white house and we know kushner uses what's app. kushner has a close relationship from mbs. in fact a disturbing number of american officials use what's app to conduct official government business and we know that because we've seen the text
6:16 am
forr for instance we learned it was discussed the trump team via what's app. it could clearly be hacked is a concern and secondly is we shouldn't be using private apps to conduct government business. both for archival reasons. >> so many people use it but when you think of government officials -- >> no. >> thank you very much. so many people love to go out to eat. >> yeah, they do. and another change on your bill. if you dine out in san francisco, it is going to a green cause. 1% surcharge will fund a new program called restore california. so what they will do it let you help farmers build healthy soil and pay for other green initiatives. people can opt out of the charge but environmentalists hope that diners will say yes. that program is expected to
6:17 am
raise about $10 million in one year. >> it will be interesting to see if people notice it on the bill. well trending this morning, remember when you tried ice cream for the first time. take a look at this babe g-- baby's reaction for the first reaction to the treat. it is going viral on tik tok and warming hearts. she doesn't want to let go it of. wants more and more. 9-month-old blake an immediate baskin-robbins fan there. >> look at that grip. >> i know. >> more. >> man. blakely, 30 more flavors to go. >> and the dentist is saying -- >> most of us don't remember the first time so it is good to now that we have videos and we're recording everything. >> every time feels like the first time. >> i guess so. >> it is true. >> sugar. >> so it is too early for ice cream now but not too early for coffee. and we'll have cool temperatures and as you get ready to head out of the door, we'll so-- we'll s
6:18 am
more clouds rolling if and peeks of sun today but the rain is moving out. notice as we take a look at the live view, some of the streets are stitt we-- are still wet. as you are heading to school, our temperatures will be in the lower 50s. we'll start out with a lot of clouds but then as we go into the rest of the day, the sun starts to peek out and it will be a little bit warmer than yesterday. the seven-day forecast is already up at the bottom of the screen. as we check out our high temperatures for today. so in oakland, we're reaching 60 degrees. also 60 in livermore. and upper 50s in parts of the north bay like clear lake, up to 57. santa rosa reaching 59 degrees. so here is what is coming our way, a lot of clouds and even some rain farther to the north but most of us will be missing out on that rain. as we head into saturday, we'll start to see more showers coming back in. but it looks like it holes off for most of us until late saturday night. throughout the day on sunday,
6:19 am
off-and-on showers. so just be prepared that it is going to be quite soggy going through the end of the weekend. our rainfall totals will be from about a quarter to half an inch of rain and then as you head up farther to the north, it will be over an inch of rain. so a little bit more of a soaker there. for us, the next few days will dry out and get out. every now and then get sunshine. highs in the lower 60s. and then once again more clouds on saturday as that rain arrives late in the evening and then scattered showers throughout the day on sunday. mike, is it looking in hayward. we're going to show you the view from hayward. heading across the san mateo bridge. we'll show you westbound, tapping the breaks along the plat section. i thought there might be a crash. but the rush across san mateo and this might be added, the volume might be because of the crash that was here in hayward at industrial. just got word from chp that the debris has cleared and that means more traffic in union city
6:20 am
and fremont. also westbound if you're leaving downtown hayward toward san mateo our partners at waze predict it should add another five minutes every 15 minutes that you stick around with us. stay as long as you can, but do note the build is on across 92. not so bad for the rest of the bay. and for san mateo bridge it is not that bad. we continue to follow that one surface street closure and the exit over there in livermore. that is at airway parkway off of eastbound 580 and bob redell are will bring that to us coming up despite the accident moves to the shoulder. a homeless encampment hits a road block. and former nfl star antonio brown back in the headlines. coming up, the new accusations against him. but first nbc bay area responds. >> if you're ever feeling ignored by an airline offer a
6:21 am
sour experience, consider filing a complaint with the u.s. department of transportation. when you gripe there, the airlines are required to respond to the government and you. a lot of times the airlines then settle the dispute right then. other times the feds step in and open an investigation. we put a link to the complaint form on our website,, look under the heads "consumer resources", and call us with a consumer complaint at 888-996-tips.

6:32 am
concord and pleasant hill. the rest of the bay showing a nice build. typical pattern and not so bad for a typical wednesday. this looks average for this shot but remember over here in the tri-valley we have the airway boulevard exit closed off of eastbound 580. the freeway itself is open. el charo is your option and we'll tell you about that breaking news. >> there is still a lot of police activity in the east bay, at one point they had shut down a major freeway. >> bob redell first on the scene in livermore and we know more now, bob. >> reporter: livermore police have tweeted out this was an offer involved shooting. the public information officer is supposed to be here at any moment and we hope to get any information when they arrive. this is airway at kitty hawk and it is shut down and the off-ramp
6:33 am
is shut down and to just before the golf course and the airport. i direct your attention, there is a white vehicle and then in front of that where you can't see there is another vehicle. those are the two vehicles that were involved. we know that two men have been taken into custody. i want to show you video from the 4:00 hour. a man in the second vehicle, he didn't -- won't surrender initially. i could hear police issuing commands but he did finally come up and you could see with his hands up and limping toward the armors vehicle where police were awaiting and they also had a k-9 on stand by in case he didn't comply but again he was limping slowly and did make it to police and they went over to his car with a k-9 and if you could see the red lights hovering over the car, that was a drone, a drone hovering over the vehicle to see what else was inside but they did clear the vehicle and deemed the scene safe. within the past hour this is other video. another man being taken out of
6:34 am
one of the squad cars in handcuffs and we believe he's been taken away from the scene. we don't know if he's taken to the police station or booked into santa rita. the relationship between the two men is unclear and that is why we're waiting for the public information officer to come out here. again, this is an officer-involved shooting that did result in the shut down of eastbound 580 and this initially was all lanes at airway boulevard but then chp pushed that shut down to el charo in front of the san francisco premium outlets but all lanes of 580 have since been reopened so this is not impacting traffic on your commute. westbound or eastbound on 580 but the off-ramps to airway is shut down here at kitty hawk and the section of airway boulevard by the starbucks, a landmark that people are familiar with off the freeway. this section is shut down. as livermore police continues their investigation. two men many custody,
6:35 am
officer-involved shooting. reporting live in livermore, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> thank you. more breaking news to tell you about. police surrounding a home in the east bay. here is a live look at the scene on o'toole way and o 'hatch drive. it started around 9:00 p.m. where a swat team an a large police presence is still present. now we are working to find out if there is a barricaded suspect or if police are looking for someone. our pete suratos is at the scene and we'll have any updates for you as soon as we get them. and newly released video showing the moments an off-duty police officer shot and killed a man in a vallejo parking lot. this happened last november. video shows the lead up to the argument between eric reason and a police sergeant virgil thomas who appears to put in front of a spot in return and he returns to his van and appears to pull out a gun and then after more arguing thomas fires. he fires more shots at reason as he runs off.
6:36 am
vallejo police released this video last night after completing an investigation. any charges would now be in the hands of solano county district attorney. a $20,000 reward to track the person who shot and killed a man early yesterday in a palo alto parking lot. happened at about 3:00 a.m. on san antonio road. officers arrived to find an unidentified man in his 50s shot in the stomach. police say doctors couldn't save him. so far they have no motive or information about a possible suspect. now to a big move when it comes to tenant rights in oakland. a proposal would ban landlords from asking about criminal history. and also ban tenant being rejected due to criminal record. it would apply to public and private housing. if the new limitations pass it would be the strictest of that type of law in california. city council passed the rule unanimously last night.
6:37 am
a final vote is scheduled for february 4th. berkeley city council is expected to vote on a similar measure next month. in the meantime, tens of thousands of renters in san francisco have more rights. starting this week, people living in all buildings regardless of when they were built cannot be evicted without cause. the board of supervisors unanimously approving that rule last month. well live look at the bay bridge and toll plaza. and you could see pictures -- can you picture this, though. a bus-lane only there. transit leaders can and today may be the first step in making that a reality. later today a.c. transit directors plan to debate the idea and perhaps draft a resolution. b.a.r.t. plans to debate the idea which has bon before in the early 1960s but leaders soon pulled the plug. let's check that morning commute with mike. it looks like mass transit going okay. >> mostly okay. but a delay for b.a.r.t. we continue to track this. talked about it half an hour ago
6:38 am
and it maintains a 10 minute delay with an equipment problem and there might have been a fire on the tracks. at least smoke and they are single tracking through the area but since it is a short section we're holding at 10 minutes for the delay only affecting the stretch on the peninsula. everything else is moving fine but we continue to track all of your transit agencies and follow the roadways. slowing at 680 but walnut creek has an easy drive and more slowing through lafayette. and same thing for hayward. out of san leandro more slowing and maybe a burst of traffic so that should trickle down toward hayward and union city and across the san mateo bridge as well off of 880 west 92 build toward 101. >> building up to the weekend. here we come. wednesday and leading into friday. >> before you make those plans, we'll have some rain coming in. and it is not for the whole weekend. saturday is looking like the
6:39 am
best day. and we'll see more clouds moving in, temperatures actually quite mile reaching the low 60s. up to 63 inland. bay up to about 60 degrees. and a high along the coast at about 57 degrees. now sunday is when we'll see a lot of clouds off-and-on rain and the coastal areas in the mid-50s, upper 50s for the bay. up to about 62 for the inland valley. so if you're planning to head out to the oakland a's fan fest, the weather is still holding up for that. we'll see cloudy skies, temperatures in the low 50s. if you're out there in jack london square we're only going to see temperatures reaching the upper 50s. and every now and then the sun may peek out. we're also celebrating the lunar new year so i took this picture a couple of years ago at the east ridge mall. this is happening throughout the weekend. on saturday, later in the day you wait, the higher the rain chances. but we're going to see the rain starting to move in late saturday night. if you're going to the sierra this weekend, we have good
6:40 am
travel conditions for friday. also early on saturday but sunday we'll see some light snow coming down. we'll get a look at today's temperature trend for the east bay, that is coming up in three minutes. 6:40 now. what are your thoughts on b.a.r.t. coming up on "today in the bay," the general manager is out and about talking to riders in contra costa county right now. hearing some of the riders' concerns and we'll have more coming up next. looks like there will be no witnesses for now in the impeachment trial. i'll tell you what happened yesterday. i'll walk you through what is going to happen today. to the big board, dow industrials gaining 92 points. and do you remember that jimmy g. t-shirt everyone is talking about there. well we're -- up next, would gave george kittle that shirtless shirt and that mystery has been solved and we have it for you coming up next. stick around. i am running to defeat donald trump.
6:41 am
in 2016 i warned that donald trump was
6:42 am
a dangerous demagogue, and when the republican congress wouldn't hold him accountable, i went to work helping run winning campaigns in twenty-one house seats. it's time for the senate to act and remove trump from office, and if they won't do their jobs, this november you and i will. i'm mike bloomberg and i approve this message.
6:43 am
good wednesday morning. it is 6:43. let's check out our temperature trend in dublin today. low 50s to startm a lot of clouds but notice the icon. we'll start to see some sun peeking out today and temperatures reaching the upper 50s by early this noon. not a bad day. we'll talk about what is ahead for the rest of the week even that weekend forecast in less than five minutes. but this are left-overs. see water on the roadway and the lens. might be on your windshield so
6:44 am
prepare for that before the sun has a chance to dry things out. we're following the slowdowns out there and talk about the changes for the upper east shore freeway. the impeachment of donald trump will go forward without witnesses. at least for the immediate future. good morning, democrats want to talk to the men at the center of the affair. bolton, mulvaney and more. but republicans don't want witnesses at all. that is the state of the impeachment trial after the completion of the first day which went late into the night. with arguments overrules, including those witnesses. >> the house calls john bolton, the house calls mick mulvaney, let's get this trial started, shall we. we are ready to present our case. we are ready to call our witnesses. the question is will you let us. >> to issue a subpoena to john michael mick mulvaney and i ask that it be read. >> the democracies want mulvaney
6:45 am
because he admitted there was a quid pro quo twice on television before retracting that. they want to hear from bolton because he had been disgusted by the whole deal calling it a drug deal. republicans blocking that and asking why the democrats didn't call bolton and mulvaney during the impeachment inquiry. but the president had blocked them from testifying. as you know, san jose congresswoman zoe lofgren is one of the impeachment managers, the prosecution. this is her third impeachment if you count nixon, she was involved in the '70s but this is the first time a woman has act as an impeachment manager in american history. chief justice john roberts is the judge in the case and after the two sides started bickering, roberts told them to knock it off. >> remember that they are addressing the world's greatest deliberative body, one reason it has earned that title is because
6:46 am
it's members avoid speaking in a manner and using language that is not conducive to civil discourse. >> so the impeachment trial resumes today with, we expect, three days of opening statements, eight hours each by the prosecution, today and thursday and friday. defense starts on saturday. meanwhile the business of the government chugs on. we're expecting president trump will add new countries to the travel ban. belarus, mir an mere, kyrgyzstan and nigeria, sudan, tanzania. the ban has been struck down several times by courts which said it was discrimination but since upheld and is in effect. nbc will have special coverage of the impeachment trial today. watch it online at, of course on nbc bay area and on our app. 6:46 now. happening today, b.a.r.t. general manager bob powers will
