it is nearly 6:00. we begin this hour with some breaking news on the bay bridge. kpix 5's anne makovec joins us live with the latest on the search for someone who may have fallen in the water. >> reporter: a woman. and the chp says it has gotten several reports of a woman who was soaking wet and may have been flagging down traffic. they are trying to review videotape from this area here in the bay bridge to try to figure out if that indeed may be true but a woman fell off of the bike path a couple of hours ago. if this woman is not found, the coast guard is sending up another helicopter at daybreak. in the meantime they have a boat in the water. they have officers posted along the shoreline hoping this woman will turn up on her own. it started with a car crash. only one vehicle involved on the eastbound lanes of the bridge. officers approached the car and they found one passenger there at the car. and they saw two other people walking away.
they had jumped a railing on to the bike path. when an officer approached them -- >> we believe that the driver jumped over the rail and was holding from the railing and as the officer was about 50 yards way, she began to slip and fall. >> reporter: and it was a drop of about 75 feet into the water which is about 50 to 60 degrees. they have been tracking her likely direction and questioning the other passengers as to her state of mind. we'll let you know if she is found. live at the bay bridge, anne makovec, kpix 5. thank you. let's check traffic with liza. >> it did have an early impact on the morning commute. the bay bridge metering lights were switched on earlier than usual this morning because of this situation we have been following on the bay bridge. now, as it stands right now, the bay bridge backup extends to the foot of the maze.
and bridge officials are even slowing down those metering lights to try to keep as much traffic off of the bridge right now. all lanes remain open on the span and again, bay bridge delays at the toll plaza extend to the foot of the maze. now, once you got on the bridge, you can see sluggish traffic on the incline section. now, heading towards the dumbarton bridge, out of menlo park, do keep in mind that the police department is asking folks to avoid the eastbound bayfront expressway. there is a grass fire burning right now and one lane of traffic is shut down on the bayfront expressway between willow and university. this will delay some of that traffic normally bound for the dumbarton bridge. it's been a good morning, though, for local transit. still no delays for the bart system, ferries, caltrain and both altamont commuter express trains are on schedule. that's your "kcbs traffic." here's roberta. you know, liza, i'm taking a look at some of my buoys and it looks like the water temperature in the bay right now is between 61 to 64 degrees. good morning, everyone, as you
head out the door the air temperatures are in the 50s and 60s. later today it looks like our temperatures will be pretty close to seasonal highs anywhere from approaching 70 at the beaches and 74 degrees across the bay, low 80s peninsula and up to about 88 degrees for the warmest spot inland out towards cloverdale. otherwise, it's a dry weather pattern and triple digits by saturday. developing news in the south bay overnight. police in morgan hill arrested a man after a 12-hour standoff. kpix 5's kiet do joins us at a house on manor court where a young man was hold up for about 12 hours. good morning, kiet. >> reporter: good morning. everything back to normal here in the neighborhood in morgan hill after a very long day and night. it all started yesterday when police got a call of a wanted felon here on manor court in morgan hill. now, when officers arrived they saw the man go into the home. we're told that this is the home of a friend. however, since the man was wanted for several violent crimes out of san jose, it was unclear if he was armed. police evacuated the home and
the neighborhood. then the morgan hill police called the s.w.a.t. team. they used a bull horn to get him out of the house for the next couple of hours. he didn't budge until 1 a.m. when he was arrested. neighbors heard loud bangs, probably concussion grenades. >> sounded like a flash-bang, i don't know tell you the truth. three really loud bangs and then came outside seen a bunch of cops at the house. 24 years old man is booked into the santa clara county jail. we are live in morgan hill, kiet do, kpix 5. there are more evacuations in lake county as the "jerusalem fire" continues to burn out of control. it's burning very close to the "rocky fire" with only a few miles separating the two. the "jerusalem fire" has grown to 14,000 acres. it's just 5% contained.

down. and now you can't make a right- hand turn to get on market. so you have to go way down the second and way down the ninth. all the side streets will be cluttered. walk, if you are around union square just walk. >> a big fine, too. >> that's why i love living in the suburbs. >> people walking today, right? >> crazy day for you today. >> yes. it's been an unusual day. we have had that problem at the bay bridge and now we are just getting word of an overturned big rig accident. i don't have a map of the accident it just came in from the chp. but reportedly all lanes of westbound 580 are shut down at this hour. just beyond isabel and livermore so the chp is on their way to this accident in livermore. it had already been slow any way from beyond the 205 interchange in patches heading to and through the livermore valley. the chp just tweeted a message to the drivers heading toward the bay bridge to place stay focused on the road. you will see lots of chp units near the span this morning

water before they cut the meters off and that requires a special tool. so they either have done this before in other places or they have some knowledge. >> the city is offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction. cupertino-based apple helping a small company that's making a new water conserving showerhead. apple's ceo is one of the first investors in nivea and the small company's showerheads have been installed at apple's corporate campus in cupertino. nivea is based in san francisco. water experts in southern california hope thousands of blackballs will help them deal with the drought. >> the balls were dumped into a los angeles reservoir yesterday. plastic shade balls are supposed to work. they float on the water's surface. and in theory they are going to reduce the amount of water that evaporates. >> this is a blend of how engineering really meets common sense. >> we saved a lot of money.
