ad. it was the list no airport wanted to top but coming in at number one in an "associated press" investigation was san francisco international airport, with 37 perimeter breaches in a decade. in a news conference this morning, sfo spokesman doug yakel tried to spin the dubious distinction. >> we chose to provide this level of detail so i would submit to you that in terms of how we compare to other airports, i would say we shared the most information on perimeter issues of any airport. >> reporter: of the 37 breaches, yakel said 6 were boaters and windsurfers passion the 200-yard buffer zone around the runways in the san francisco bay. another 4 breaches were along the fence lines. but yakel said by far, the largest problem was the homeless, accounting for 16 incidents. >> we do have a homeless shelter that is adjacent to the airport perimeter. we have been in extensive outreach with that homeless shelt ever and our goal is to ensure that the occupants of that homeless shelter keep a
6:01 pm
safe distance away from the airport perimeter. >> reporter: on the northern edge of sfo sits safe harbor and 99 beds. the ceo says the suggestion his clients are the problem is false. >> in the 15 years we have operated safe harbor we have had only one incident of our residents going into the airport property. so it's not true. >> i actually think somebody probably misstated the facts. but they do know very well that it's not due to us. >> reporter: of the 37 breaches, 2 people had access to planes. one at a corporate jet facility on airport property, the other the son of a pilot who wandered into a secure zone. >> i would tell you that the goal is always zero. >> reporter: now, at the moment, sfo is averaging about 3 to 4 security breaches per year as you heard, their goal is zero. now, oddly enough a few minutes ago i had a san francisco police officer walk up to me here and say, hey, you know the real problem is safe harbor, right? so it's an ongoing situation nobody is quite sure who is at fault. live at sfo, andria borba, kpix
6:02 pm
5. well, sfo wasn't the only one. mineta san jose airport came in at number 5 on the ap list. oakland airport was not on the list at all. it may be 911 that has the emergency. a california lawmaker is calling out a flaw he says has been fatal. new at 6:00 kpix 5's maria medina live with the fight to fix it. maria. >> reporter: and veronica, one woman called 911 but instead of getting help, she says she watched her husband die. >> 911, what's your emergency? >> reporter: it's a call for help one woman says didn't get answered quick enough. >> richard did not make it. >> reporter: she told lawmakers thursday morning how 911 failed her. >> the dispatch informed me that she could not forward my call without an address. by then, i realized richard was turning purple so i handed the phone over to a friend who continued to describe our location. >> reporter: the 911 flaw was at the center of a hearing at the capital tracing emergency calls made from cell phones. if i were to call 911 from a
6:03 pm
home here dispatchers could only see my approximate location. and that means officers might have to knock on every, single door on this block to find me. >> when 911 comes in sometimes it comes off a cell tower or in an approximate area. it doesn't give us an exact location so it could be a house down the block from where we start from. >> reporter: according to the california chapter of the national emergency number association in 2013 alone, dispatchers couldn't tell the location of more than half of all 911 calls made by cell phones in our state. >> when they are victims of crime, seconds count. when you have a medical emergency seconds count. if we can have an exact location right away it would help to save more lives. >> reporter: and last year, san bernardino woman called 911 to report she had been attack. she did not give an address. it took police 20 minutes before they could find her. but by that time, she was dead. in san jose, maria medina, kpix 5. some new questions tonight
6:04 pm

6:05 pm
shareholders, not the ratepayers. adding in other penalties, the total pg&e payout now totals $2.2 billion. in a statement, pg&e says their focus is on moving forward to complete the important safety work that they set out to do. a sobering warning from water experts. the drought may get far worse than we thought. reporter ron jones with worries the drought may last for years. >> we have to take action. >> reporter: dubbed drought four years and counting, this briefing at the crest theater in sacramento featured a panel of state, federal and local environmental and wildlife officials. >> and we are all in this together. >> reporter: the audience sprinkled with water district managers and community leaders from across the state. the panel chaired the latest drought statistics and projections. their purpose? sound the drought alarm louder. >> we don't to if it's going to rain next year or the year after that.
6:06 pm
>> reporter: state officials say californians should brace for a possible australian type drought. that country was hammered with dry conditions for ten long years. with the state's record low snowpack and diminishing reservoir levels who knows when significant snow and rain will come? >> we need to prepare no as if it won't. >> it's a real problem. >> reporter: many people we spoke with embracinged the conservation mandate. the panel says even those californians who get it stop the finger-pointing and focus on individual efforts. >> the average californian knows the drought is serious. the average californian thinks they are doing something about it and they think their neighbor is not. >> that was ron jones reporting there. the state's water resources control board is expected to vote on mandatory drought restrictions next month. and we could see a spike in west nile virus cases because of the drought. a lack of water is forcing birds and disease-carrying mosquitos into more urban

6:08 pm
transportation funding will suddenly dry up. the stand-up for transportation rally in san francisco was meant to send a message literally. people signed a bus urging lawmakers to pass legislation to keep the money pouring in. without it, they warn buses and trains would stop running. it would put the brakes on road improvement projects and they say the effect would immediately be seen on streets and highways. remember how bad things were during the bart strike? >> can you imagine if all 28 transit agencies in the entire bay area suddenly had no funding and they all had to stop? and that doesn't even begin to talk about our highway system and everything else. so it would be complete chaos here. >> reporter: this was just one of several rallies held around the country today. the deadline to get a bill passed is may 31. veronica, back to you. >> liz, thank you. there's i a flaw in new parking meters in san jose. when a large truck drives by some of the meters reset to zero because of the design. the motion sensors in the
6:09 pm
meters mistake the heavy vehicle for a car leaving the parking spot. this little hiccup has led to hundreds of parking tickets. many people say the city should have never made a switch. >> they should have just stuck with the old school method. it worked and seemed to be you know -- it's worked for a long time. >> old meters, without a doubt. it's easier. it's easier. it's not broke, don't fix it. >> the faulty meters are mostly downtown near the courthouse. the city has acknowledged the problem and says the reset function has been disabled on dozens of meters. this same type of them happened in walnut creek last year. at least 100 drivers got tickets because of a glitch in the meters. just like in san jose, the sensors in the meters were too sensitive. vice president joe biden and his wife dr. jill biden are visiting the bay area tonight. vice president attend a

6:17 pm
a year driving by an thinking, man, that would be a great project. >> reporter: keith fontana is the proud new owner of -- well, like he said, a project. >> so the porch leaning the steps almost gone, the caution tape, none of that deterred you? >> no. i have been doing this for 20 years. >> reporter: doing this as in he is a contractor. but it turns out two other people made offers on the place in its as is condition also knowing the city wouldn't let them tear down the historic 1905 honeymoon cottage, as it's known. so to get it keith paid $70,000 over asking price. still, $425,000 in a town where the average house price is a million and a half? bargain. >> everything under that brown roof is actually in fairly good shape. if you look at everything that -- the porches and what's been added on over the years is falling off. >> reporter: he has to first get a demolition permit to tear down what's on the outside of
6:18 pm

6:19 pm
life and family he is bringing back to the cottage, why wouldn't they? in larkspur, allen martin, kpix 5. >> yeah. so the cheapest two-bedroom listing that we found in larkspur was for $515,000. that was on zillo. and brian we were talking about this, a lot of stuff in that neighborhood will go for over a million dollars. >> in larkspur you can get just an ordinary ranch style house nothing special no view no nothing and it's 1.1, 1.2 million. >> he is going to live in an historic home. >> everything is that price. >> silicon valley, absolutely. but in marin, i mean, larkspur, the school district, that's what that's always the story. the story with the weather is we had a lot of sunshine today. a few high clouds up top. as we look at the time lapse from the lawrence hall of science, with clouds from time to time, made for a pleasant

[ screaming and cursing ] >> reporter: the video has gone viral. one person posted, talk about a free bus ride. another wrote, sometimes you got to save a dollar 50. the bus is actually $1.75. but the legal repercussions of bus surfing or shooting video of it could be far steeper. >> if you film it and think it's funny and all of a sudden there's an accident then you could be held liable for whatever happens. >> we do have cameras on board our buses. it's primarily to report what's happening inside the bus. >> reporter: the driver can only see what's happening in front of the bus not behind it. bus surfers looking for a free ride are encouraged to think about the rides that follow after a fall down like a ride
