were wanting to take off. i obviously called 911 immediately. >> the woman told us she discovered bottles of alcohol in her yard around the crash site as you see there. police took one person in custody and another person in the car was taken to the hospital. the woman told us she saw a third person run away from the scene of the crash. police need your help finding a hit-and-run driver who killed a 4-year-old boy. while his mother and father are left searching for answers. 4-year-old hector was hit friday evening while standing with his father in front of their richmond home. "today in the bay's" marianne favro spoke to the boy's parents. >> reporter: jamie and her husband are still in shock their 4-year-old son hector is gone. they say he was standing next to his father who was getting something out of hi car parked in front of the the home when an suv slacked into hector, throwing him into the air.
she said the crash was so loud ran out of the house to find her son bleeding in the street. the driver took off. hector was taken to a local hospital where he died hours later. janie is from brazil and in spanish she has a message for that driver. >> translator: you are a very bad person without a heart. you don't have a god like a monster. >> reporter: but she is grateful for those that tried to help her son, grabbing a first aid kit. >> trying to apply pressure and seeing if the kid is awake and barely awake and i'm like please stay awake, help is coming. >> reporter: richmond police briefly shut down the street to launch a drone for surveillance of the accident scene and police are working owe to track down the driver of this blue metallic two-door ford explorer between 1993 and 2003 with after-market
wheels. as they remember their son's smile and love of animals and matchbox cars, they hope justice will be served to the driver that killed him. marianne favro, nbc bay area news. gisting gears to the latest on the coronavirus outbreak. test results are still pending as people remain quarantined at travis air force base near fairfield. four people who arrived showed symptoms and have been taken to hospitals. we have new numbers on the death toll. 811 people have now died from the virus including one american citizen in wuhan, china. in what appears to be the first american death from the outbreak. we told but that yesterday morning. and another 37,000 people around the world are infected. 12 of those cases are are here in the u.s. half of them here in california. that is including four cases in the bay area. those coronavirus concerns have spread to a huge bay area tradition. san francisco's annual chinese
new yearar aid. it is the oldest and largest outside of asia and still went on last night but with a noticeably smaller crowd. sergio quintana takes us there. >> the lunar new year parade started off with a bang. london breed was draped in red as she welcomed people to the celebration. >> so glad to see people from all over coming to san francisco of to enjoy the chinese new year parade. this is just incredible. >> reporter: spectators are usually packed in along the parade route and this year people seemed to have plenty of elbow room. >> we come here every year. >> how is the crowd? >> less than before. i think people are concerned. >> in years past has it been more full, the crowd here. >> i think so. i feel like it has been. but fortunately there are very few people wearing masks so thank goodness for that. >> reporter: san francisco leaders have spent the last several days assuring people there is no cause for concern about the coronavirus. there have been no cases
diagnosed in san francisco. still, we did spot a few people wearing masks. i counted about a dozen over the duration of the parade. but the vast majority of people here had no worried about the coronavirus. >> did you have any concerns about coming to the parade this queer. >> absolutely not. we took the train up from mountain view and its was packed. >> reporter: this is the year of the rat and according to one hero scope 2020 will have its issues but eventually turn around. sergio quintana, nbc bay area news. >> be sure to download our app to get updates on this growing outbreak and head to nbcbayarea.com for the very latest. the gunman who went on a mass killing spree in thailand yesterday has been shot and killed. police say that the soldier killed at least 26 people and wounded dozens more. before he was cornered in the terminal 21 mall. the violence started at a military base where the gunman killed his commanding officer
and two others. then he stole weapons and a humvee firing at a buddhist temple on the way to the mall. mass shootings are very rare in thailand. this is being called the worst in the country's history. investigators are trying to figure out why he did it. back here locally, methamphetamine-related deaths are on the rise in san jose so now the city has a plan to deal with that problem. you may remember back in 2017 san jose opened the mission street sobering center. it is a dropoff spot for people who have been arrested for public intoxication. now the city said it will designate ten of the 20 spaces specifically for meth users. it will provide them with showers, food, with clothing and registered nurses for help and therapists for support. >> the officers could drop people off who have -- coming down off of hedmeth or alcohol a mental health episode and stay
there just shy of 24 hours to sober up and we're going to use the opportunity to try to connect them directly to services or to family or to a place for them to go after they are with us. >> that new service will begin march 4th and like the counter part in san francisco, it is among the first sobering centers in the country directly addressing meth use. it is 7:09 now. we do have much more ahead on "today in the bay." coming up, live to new hampshire to talk with chuck todd ahead of the tuesday primary and get a preview of this week's "meet the press." and twitter branching out. the changes jack dorsey has planned that may not include the bay area. obama: he's been a leader throughout the country for the past twelve years, mr. michael bloomberg is here. vo: leadership in action. mayor bloomberg and president obama worked together
in the fight for gun safety laws, to improve education, and to develop innovative ways to help teens gain the skills needed to find good jobs. obama: at a time when washington is divided in old ideological battles he shows us what can be achieved when we bring people together to seek pragmatic solutions. bloomberg: i'm mike bloomberg and i approve this message.
>> thank you. >> and then back to d.c. now you're in new hampshire. and you have it all covered for us. coming off the heels of a rocky iowa caucus to say the least, all eyeses -- eyes on the new hampshire prime and you're on the ground there, what are you watching for? >> reporter: much to see if we saw in iowa which is a separation from the pack a little bit between the leading progressive and leading moderate in buttigieg and sanders and then there was a bit of a gap and then everybody else. is it still the case or does this week re-set the race and it is still a muddle again. you look at buttigieg, he clearly got a bounce out of iowa but if you believe the latest tracks in the last 24 hours, he started to plateau and amy klobuchar is popping up and elizabeth warren feels hike she plateaued and joe biden trajectory looks downward and it
is a jumble and one thing about new hampshire and this prime leeel -- primary electorate this century is there is a bunch that didn't participate four years ago. it was much more liberal than probab probably than this one will be for moderate republicans and right-leaning independents voting in the primary for john kasich and chris christie. those voters are shopping for a democrat. buttigieg is making a direct appeal to those voters. do they come over? does that happen? if it does that could be the difference of how buttigieg would pull an upset n. my looking at it, that is what would be necessary if buttigieg wants to be able to sort of take that next step in the race, i think he has to win here and if he wants to break through this perception that he can't do well outside of iowa and new hampshire.
>> chuck, the democratic national committees has revised the presidential debate rules by eliminating a minimum number of contributors for each candidate and allowing self-funded michael bloomberg the possibility of participation. to what extent do you think this change reflected the concern that the moderate joe biden may not carry the day? >> well, i don't know if it is a concern. it is interesting, the dnc was getting heat from some progressives who say it is not far that michael bloomberg is not debating versus heat from others who say you didn't change the rules to help out cory booker or kamala harris, candidates of color, why are you changing the rules now for a billionaire. so i think people that are making ho making -- those cases are just trying to grab a headline if you will. at the end of the day, with him spending so much money, you could make an argument that he should be in the debates sooner rather than later to find out where he stands and i think some democrats think that letting him
skip the debates is actually more helpful to him. so i think that is one of the things that really just depends on your perspective of where you sit in the primary when it comes to bloomberg. >> and we'll have to see how it pans out for bloomberg. >> he still has to qualify via the polls and he hasn't yet. >> great point. chuck as always we appreciate your time and look forward to seeing how new hampshire panneds out. thanks to you. and be sure to join chuck, we hope you do, for this morning's "meet the press" from manchester, new hampshire, with interviews have bernie sanders and pete buttigieg at 8:00 a.m. right after this newscast. so stick here. and larry will be back in 40 minutes for our weekly political segment to take a look at mayor michael bloomberg's traditional approach. larry we'll see you in about 25 minutes. twitter's love affair with
the bay area appears to be waning. the ceo jack dorsey told investors he's planning to distribute the work force in the near future and the concentration in san francisco is not serving the company any longer. and a distributed work force will improve execution. san francisco is a tough spot for tech companies with high salaries and expensive real estate and fierce competition for top hireses. now to a food fight between state of california and a miyocko's kitchen is suing after ordered to stop using the word butter. it contained 80% milk fat and the owners say it is made of cultured cashew mostly and it is accusing the state of taking sides in the fight between animal and plant-based foods and they point out that nobody has con tuzed peanut butter or apple
butter with butter made from cow's milk. and hoping for a big night at the oscars. netflix has 24 nominations, the most of any other film studio. netflix has spent $70 million in marketing for its films during the award season. it is no small cost there. you may have heard of the irishman bringing in the most nominations and nominated also for best picture. interesting to see what happens tonight. and let's check in with vianey arana with a check of our forecast. the winds might force people to stay in and watch the oscars. >> for southern california, we're tracking rain. so that is another possibility. >> see what that red carpet turns out to be. >> but we are well prepared. i'm from southern california and it has happened before. but locally we're not worried about the rain. it is dry and windy. that is the big story for today. the main reason we're under a microclimate weather alert and i want to start out with the view of the golden gate bridge because it shows two components.
how beautiful and clear it is. but it also shows this flag. you could see it waving and i saw the national weather service did tweet out they had a spotter spot 40-mile-per-hour gusts in the city so something to look out for and you could see how clear the conditions are. on satellite radar no clouds in sight over the bay area. so taking a look at the current temperatures, two systems are interacting and creating the weather pattern. 52 in palo alto. significantly warmer in some spots compared to the past 24 hours. including areas like santa rosa at 12 degrees warmer. we were at about 6, maybe 6 degrees less yesterday morning in napa and that is because of the interaction of the ridge of high pressure from inland areas and low pressure just off the coast. that trough is what is going to kick up the winds i'll take you through that in a sec but first our daytime highs. so temperatures comfortable in the 60s in san jose. 63 degrees.
and oakland 63. concord 63 as well. your outlook on the skies, a beautiful, sunny day. but however the winds will play a big factor. so where you see the yellow color, here it is, this is where the wind advisory is and you could see through vallejo we have a high wind warning and the reason is because they've seen gusts upwards of 50-plus miles per hour. so all day today this is in effect. for the north bay mountains 20 to 25-mile-per-hour gusts and that is continuous winds gusts and they've reported gusts of 45 miles per hour overnight. and coast and hills 15 po 30 miles per hour and gusts possible of 40 and i mentioned a spotter did see a wind -- or a gust of 40-mile-per-hours in the city. let's take you through the timing of the winds. when are the gustiest conditions. around 7:30, seeing gusty conditions in san francisco. 29 miles per hour. but check out vacaville,
43-mile-per-hour wind gusts and that is where the high-wind warning is taking effect. to about 2:30, here is the time bar, look at what happens. it is widespread throughout bay area and down through san jose 25 and orinda 36. and the gustiest conditions are in the peaks. mount saint helena has seen a peak gust of 80 miles per hour overnight. which is high. overnight we start so notice the winds begin to diminish and turn itting breezily around 11:00 and the wind advisory will remain through 11:00 a.m. tomorrow. a dry start to february. again the component of the low pressure to the high pressure interacting and i talked about the rain chances for l.a. here it is. now the cold temps overnight with the wind shear are going to play a component but it is remaining dry for the next several days. breezy and cool through the middle of the week with some chance of showers heading into next weekend for the far north bay. over the next seven days,
starting out monday breezy and temperatures in the 60s for san francisco. mild on tuesday and again a chance of seeing a few showers thanks to a passing system by next friday into saturday. kira. >> vianey arana, thanks. it is 7:21 now. much more ahead on "today in the bay." they've been priced out and kicked out and losing sight of the american dream. so just how did the bay area housing crisis get so bad? we start from the very beginning in our new series "making it in the bay." obama: he's been a leader
teens gain the skills needed to find good jobs. obama: at a time when washington is divided in old ideological battles he shows us what can be achieved when we bring people together to seek pragmatic solutions. bloomberg: i'm mike bloomberg and i approve this message. it's timcan it helpltimate sleep nukeep me asleep?he sleep number 360 smart bed. absolutely, it senses your movements and automatically adjusts to keep you both comfortable. save 50% on the sleep number 360 limited edition smart bed. plus 0% interest for 24 months on all smart beds. only for a limited time "making it in the bay", our new look at the bay area housing crisis. whether you own or rent, you probably asked yourself how did the bay area's housing get this bad. it is a question "today in the bay's" melissa colorado set out to answer. >> to really understand how the bay area's us housing crisis has spiralled so faf out of control, we need to go back in time.
no, not to the start of the tech bubble. before that. to the 1970s. when local cities were starting to boom and taxes were rising with them. then came the game-changer, proposition 13. >> it restrained how much local government could raise property taxes each year. >> reporter: university of san francisco law professor tim iglesias said it caused cash-hungry cities to zone more land for cher shall use to collect for sales tax. >> and then there is a problem of inequality of wealth and income and then the problem of increased costs to build housing. >> reporter: steep impact fees pushed developers to build more expensive homes because those buyers can absorb the cost which brings us to big tech and the influx of all of the workers to the bay area. >> because they make a lot of money, they bid up housing prices and that has created a lot of increase in housing pric
prices gentrification. >> reporter: the g-word. no city has seen it quite like oakland. look up and see construction cranes working on the latest sleek apartment building where studios might start at a little under $3,000 a month. look below and see streets lined with tents and rvs, the last resort for those priced out. >> we have systemic failures to create adequate, affordable housing for our hard-working families. >> reporter: the bay area's housing crisis is a slow-of moving storm that has been churning for decades but now the storm has become a full on hurricane in the eye of that storm middle class families striving to achieve the american dream of owning a home. >> $500,000 k doesn't get you anywhere and that is a lot of money. >> reporter: this woman and her partner didn't rely on a bank to help buy their home in castro valley. they had to ask family and
friends to pitch in. >> we really have to use our community and our family to help us with to come up with just 10% of the down payment. >> reporter: the professor said the market-driven approach to housing isn't working. he said states, county and local leaders need to take bold steps -- >> local governments could zone hor area for multi-tahousing an make it easier. >> reporter: before it gets worse. >> when the middle class cares about something, politicians pay attention. >> reporter: in oakland, melissa colorado, nbc bay area news. well, coming up, more on the bay area crisis and chuing a break down of what $400,000 will get you here and what the same amount of money will get you in other cities across the country. plus democratic presidential hopefuls ramped up campaigns and getting ready for the new hampshire primary. the new strategy some candidates are using in hopes of winning.

sas and while not that much different than apartment living it is a place you can own in silicon valley tor $400,000. now for comparison. here is what you get for $400,000 in portland. a three bedroom two bathroom house, the interior pretty basic, but you do have 1500 square feet of space. one reason portland is catching on with people living in the bay area. alsos catching on these days with techies, austin, texas, for $400,000 you get this house on sully creek drive. three bedrooms, three bathrooms, 2500 square feet of space and even a walk-in closet. we'll do this all week long. comparing what you'll get here and in other cities. monday morning scott mcgrew will show you what you get for $500,000. i'll be back monday night at 6:00 to show you what you'll get for $600,000. back to you. >> scott, thanks. still ahead on "today in the bay," can former new york mayor

good morning, everyone. remembering kobe bryant. the warriors honoring the basketball icon last night. he died two weeks ago in a helicopter crash. a 24-second moment of silence as a tribute for bryant and the eight other victims of the crash. andrew wiggins making his debut with the warriors. he's wearing a tribute t-shirt the warriors gave to fans. first quarter, dubs playing catch-up against the lakers. wiggins with a three ball from the corner pocket. the first bucket as a warrior. he 24 points. east oakland native anderson scoring his first nba bucket wearing 95 in honor of his

in the fight for gun safety laws, to improve education, and to develop innovative ways to help teens gain the skills needed to find good jobs. obama: at a time when washington is divided in old ideological battles he shows us what can be achieved when we bring people together to seek pragmatic solutions. bloomberg: i'm mike bloomberg and i approve this message. welcome back. former new york city mayor michael bloomberg is in the race to become the democratic presidential candidate. except for the fact that he's not. he's not even included in the first four presidential contests beginning in iowa last week. and now continuing into new hampshire. so how can the former new york
mayor win the democratic nomination with this unconventional approach political analyst larry gerston joins us. welcome back. you're here to explain the bloomberg viability plan. if we could go back from the winning, why did he wait so long to even jump into the race? >> a lot of people have been asking that question. bloomberg stayed away because he assumed that fellow moderate and former vice president joe biden would go carry the day. he would get the democratic mantle against donald trump but biden's entry followed by sluggish and fundraising mediocre performances in the early debates, well it gave bloomberg the impression that the nomination might fall to bernie sanders or senator elizabeth warren. what is wrong with them? well as far as he's concerned both were considered to be unelectable because of positions
that bloomberg sees as outside of the mainstream. so those events collectively led bloomberg to decide his presidential intentions last november. and that is really late these days. >> really late. that was sort of his way of saying i don't believe in any of these candidates. so you noted that bloomberg defines himselves as a moderate. how so is he a moderate. >> unlike sanders and warren, bloomberg proposes new taxes on the wealthy but not in the wholesale fashion and promises affordable health care but not by those who all want it and bloomberg begins -- believes that companies like google and facebook should not be broken up but regulated the same ways that newspapers are. so that said, bloomberg joins progressive democrats in his commitment to dealing with climb change, supporting women's right to choose and greatly increasing the minimum wage. but still, it is important to remember that biden is not the
only moderate in the race. former south bend, indiana, mayor pete buttigieg has soared in weeks and many believes that amy klobuchar hit the ball out of the park. also a moderate. she had an outstanding performance on the debate stage last friday night. >> and a lot of his competitors are bringing up his wealth. we've heard a great deal about michael bloomberg's self-made millions and how do you see those as the road to parody to him and other candidates. >> billions. that could go a long way here, right. he's not kidding himself or anybody else. bloomberg's wealth approaching $60 billion. $60 billion. making him one of the richest people many the entire world. now, he's promised to self finance his campaign which he said will eliminate any pressure with wealthy donors and to that
end bloomberg has pledged to spend -- unbelievable numbers. at least $1 billion on his candidacy. $1 billion. he spent $300 million through january alone. remember he started in november. so over the first two months, through january, $300 million. which leads many onlookers to believe at this pace bloomberg may well spend much more than that amount altogether should his campaign go all the way to the democratic convention in july. these numbers, kira, are phenomenal. to give you a comparison, hillary clinton's 2016 presidential campaign spent $1.2 billion the whole time. while the trump campaign spent $650 million. so before it is over, bloomberg could equal or even exceed these totals combined. >> wow! >> he said the expenditures are necessary to introduce himself and the proposals to the voters. it is a lot to swallow.
>> it is a lot to swallow. i guess you could argue it keeping it out of the pocket of relying on healthy donors as you said. so what is his strategy beyond that and, again, back to his late start, do you think he can overcome that? >> well, bloomberg dismisses the first four contests, the ones that you you talked about earlier as unduly costly events that provide very little numbers of convention delegates. he's right about that. he intends to make a splash on march 3rd, that is super-tuesday where 14 states will hold primaries and that includes california which will choose nor delegates than any other state. ultimately bloomberg will focus on the 25 states with the most delegates. and speaking of california, bloomberg has 220 staff members here already. nearly triple the number working for bernie sanders who has the next highest number. but bloomberg expects to have an astounding 800 paid staff members in california by the end
of the month. so he is ramping up at an incredible rate. >> not to mention paid. a lot of staffers on other campaigns are volunteers. so, again, by entering the race so late and you're mentioning all of the money he needs to spend to introduce himself to the country and without many organizers on the ground until now, do you think he can win the nomination? >> well, bloomberg's campaign is emerged as what may be called the great scarement. the great experiment. in modern times no one has entered the fray so late and emerged with the nomination but then again in modern times no one has come close to bloomberg's budget, if you could call it that. after campaigning only for a month super-tuesday polls show bloomberg third in north carolina. fourth in texas, fourth in utah and several other states he's in double-digits as well. and even if bloomberg doesn't get the nomination by the start of the democratic convention, the combination of his candidacy
and so many others still a democratic race suggest a strong possibility that no candidate will prevail with a first ballot victory and should that occur no one knows who might emerge. i'm telling you, there is just real possibility, it is incredibly interesting to me, this real possibility that we may have a broken convention. that is a convention why nobody wins on the first ballot and you have to go on and go on to a second and third ballot and that is when the super-delegates get involves. and that is going to be a very exciting six or seven months. >> we'll stay tuned. thanks, larry. as always, vianey has your forecast after this. >> you're rent keeps rising. meet the bay area tenants on strike for months. with new hope for renters all across the bay area. monday at 11:00, "making it in the bay" only on nbc bay area news. >> nbc bay area responds.
good sunday morning. it is 7:55. and we're under a microclimate weather alert because it is windy. look at our live camera right now. overlooking san francisco. you could see just how shaky it is. winds reported in the so-- from the city upwards of 40 miles per hour so expect a windy day ahead. our current temperatures mild, 50 in san jose and 52 in palo alto. 53 in san francisco. but let's get right to your microclimate highs for today because i want to you be prepared. hold on to your hats or avoid wearing one in general becauses it is windy day. afternoon highs in the mid and to low 60s in through oakland. 59 degrees for san francisco. but areas like concord and san jose top out at 63 degrees. here is the big story for today.
the wind advisory and the reason that we're under a microclimate weather alert. now the areas highlights in yellow gives the cue bar and that is a wind advisory at 11:00 a.m. on monday and then widespread by this afternoon and the area of red through vallejo that is a high wind warning. we have the interaction of high pressure ridge warming us up and a low pressure system just off the coast, compared that -- or pair that up with the ridge in inland areas and that is kicking up the winds. now we are going to see gusty conditions throughout the afternoon. 2:30, san jose 25 miles per hour and danville 34 and san francisco 29 and vacaville 50 plus mierp gusts and that is a zone under high-wind warning. we notice the winds diminishing but not until overnight. late, 11:00. and by tomorrow morning by the time that wind advisory expires
is the return from windy to breezy. thousand a dry start to february. but we haven't really seen much rain. the cool temperatures for wind sheltered valleys were last night. we'll see the low pressure system down in l.a. i know it is oscar sunday so we'll be monitoring that and they're also getting the winds thanks to the interaction from the low pressure system and the high pressure system. and then we could see the chance of possibly some rain heading into next friday and saturday just to our north. so seven-day forecast out look, 59 for today in san francisco and sticking to the 60s and remain in the 60s with breezy condition cans through tomorrow so just be careful. potential for down trees and power outages, a big risk for today so that is something that we monitor closely. don't forget to join me on facebook live right after the show to be here to answer all of your questions. i got your back. >> we do. we hope people tune into you. and thanks so much for making us a part of your sunday morning. we'll have more local news tonight at 4:30 and 6:00 and 11:00 and all day on
