tv   KPIX 5 News at 600PM  CBS  February 18, 2016 6:00pm-7:01pm PST

6:00 pm
live from the cbs bay area studios, this is kpix 5 news. your realtime captioner is linda marie macdonald. good evening, i'm veronica de la cruz. >> i'm allen martin. only on 5 people in one sillicon valley neighborhood are complaining of mystery noises near a top secret tech facility. in a story we first broke last night at 11 on kpix 5, today kpix 5's mike sugerman went looking for answers in sunnyvale. he ran into a kind of a surprising dead end there. >> allen, we don't know what's going on inside these buildings in sunnyvale. the city doesn't either. apple may be building a driverless car and testing it. they don't want anybody to know what's going on. there are fences everywhere. there's nothing illegal or against code. but what would be a problem is the noise that's keeping neighbors up. the city didn't know about
6:01 pm
that, either. last night we told but weird noises and secret doings in these sunnyvale buildings. 3 a.m. they have deliveries. it's secretive. it's very dark. almost every night noise wakes up the dogs. >> reporter: a blog several years ago gave a clue saying apple had been granted a permit for an auto testing center leading to speculation a driverless car from the computer giant might be being built there. what's going on in that factory that everybody is secret about? >> you have to ask apple that. >> reporter: outside of that mention in the blog, the city admits it has no idea what in fact is going on here. [ noise ] >> reporter: hello? apple didn't return phone calls nor answer the door at one of the several buildings on this block on san gabriel road, where the noise is coming from and keeping neighbors up at night. >> they're like sheets of metal
6:02 pm
slamming. you'll hear like planking. you'll hear almost a grinding sound. [ noise ] >> this was always such a nice quiet neighborhood. and now it's more of an industrial area. it's very frustrating. >> reporter: the city admits, it didn't know that, either, until our story last night. >> we saw your coverage about that story and looked into city complaints and we actually couldn't find anything. >> reporter: she is asking neighbors to let the city know so they can send inspectors and police officers out even in the middle of the night. but as for if apple is building its long rumored but never confirmed driverless car? the city of sunnyvale is in the dark as well as everybody else. apple has this permit for auto testing. that doesn't mean they are building a driverless car. they do a lot of things with cars, audio, gps, that kind of thing. we don't know what's going on in the buildings. those gates don't help us find that out, allen.
6:03 pm
>> mike, as you're knocking on doors talking to people today, what was the neighborhood like there while were you there today? >> reporter: it was quiet. there did seem to be a change because we were all up and down the street where those buildings are and nobody came out to stop us. i think they found out that, um, with those security guards, it's bad pr. so they stopped doing that. apparently. >> all right, mike sugerman in sunnyvale, thank you. a big win for the bay area and it comes at l.a.'s expense. we have learned the first leg of the bullet train will be the 250-mile stretch between san jose and bakersfield. that's instead of running trains first to los angeles. new at 6:00, kpix 5's devin fehely on the major benefits the project will bring to sillicon valley. >> reporter: yeah, getting that first leg of the high-speed rail system is an enormous coup for northern california. imagine making sillicon valley money but enjoying a quieter and significantly cheaper quality of life in the central
6:04 pm
valley. the high-speed rail project could transform the bay area's transportation system linking sillicon valley's high paying jobs with the central valley's relatively low cost of living all with the promise of a quick convenient commute. >> the high-speed rail authority had a tough choice to make. two great regions of l.a. and san jose, but needing to start with one and this was more cost-effective and more time-efficient. >> reporter: although it won't be officially announced until tomorrow, northern california has managed to leapfrog ahead of los angeles, in line now for the first leg of the $64 billion high-speed rail system from bakersfield to san jose. the economic impact of the rail line would be enormous, court sam liccardo. >> we're ready in the region. >> reporter: the congestion and gridlock worse by the day. commuters want more transportation options. >> i ride the train every day. i think a train is good. whether or not people want to
6:05 pm
go to the central valley or not is another question but -- >> reporter: here's why they might. according to the national association of realtors, the median price for a house in san jose topped $900,000 last year. compare that to roughly $200,000 in bakersfield where the line would begin. >> i know it's expensive but, you know, cars aren't sustainable so i think rail offers a good alternative. >> reporter: high-speed rail is on track to reach the bay area in a decade potentially changing where we live, where we work and how we get there. so high-speed rail travels in excess of 200 miles per hour and as advertised and could make the first leg of the jury in under an hour. devin fehely, kpix 5. >> another benefit to starting the train here instead of los angeles, it brings the cost of the project down to $64 billion from $68 billion. crews are tearing down an apartment building in pacifica that's been on the edge of the
6:06 pm
cliff. the two-story building used to be at 330 esplanade avenue. now it's a pile of rubble. kpix 5's joe vazquez is there tonight. some neighbors are worried, some popping the champagne. >> reporter: absolutely. a lot of celebrating because there's a new view of the pacific ocean. this is what people have been gawking at all day, demolition crews tearing down the building after years of having it sit here. these neighbors finally have a clear shot at the pacific ocean because the lot across the street is finally being demolished. >> the view is awesome, i can't complain, a million-dollar view. >> reporter: the cliff top apartment building at 330 esplanade in pacifica was in danger of falling into the ocean. dozens were evacuated in 2009. red-tagged, it has been sitting empty and condemned until
6:07 pm
today. this is what it looked like just last month. now it's just a pile of splinters. the work crews say they should be done by the end of the night. city officials say the owner paid for the demolition. that won't be the case for 320 esplanade next door which was also red-tagged in 2009. the owner of that complex is bankrupt so the city is having to make plans for its demolition. a date hasn't been set. and then last month, yet a third building 310 esplanade was yellow-tagged after el nino storms took more chunks out of the cliff underneath. residents have been allowed to retrieve their things but can't stay overnight. the city hasn't decided whether it will stay or also be torn down. >> yay! oh!! happy! [ laughter ] >> reporter: it's party time for the folks across the street. now you have a view. are they going to raise your rent? >> god, i hope not. i hope my landlord isn't
6:08 pm
watching this, either. [ laughter ] >> reporter: hope not. we won't tell him. all right. we're back live now in pacifica, where the demolition continues. i will tell you all the landlords know because it's only three buildings now but the erosion continues with more storms to come. reporting live in pacifica, joe vazquez, kpix 5. the bay area's latest storm left behind quite the mess. strong winds took down trees around the bay area. [ chainsaw noise ] >> in the oakland hills crews used chainsaws to cut up and remove this large tree. it came down before 6 a.m. hitting the top of a work van and that wasn't the only damage. >> you can look up the street, the top of that pole has been clipped off and so all the wires came straight down in the street. and on top of this car. >> both the car and the work van belong to the same couple. they have a third vehicle to get around. no one was injured. in the santa cruz mountains a tree fell blocking traffic on highway 17 near redwood
6:09 pm
estates. it came down around 11:00 and affected both sides of the road. county fire crews came in to clear it out. and if you were up early enough, you may have seen this. dozens of lightning strikes around the bay area overnight including a few over the bay bridge. meteorologist paul deanno is looking ahead to the next round of rain for us. >> believe it or not, the current round of rainfall is not done yet. more than 100 cloud-to-ground lightning strikes overnight and early this morning. let's take a look at the radar. a couple of showers continue in the sonoma county hills also napa county north of yountville and calistoga and southern lake county. things drying out from san francisco southward. round one of our rain this week is wrapping up. maybe it was that lightning that got you up. you were up early in the area. a line of thunderstorms moving right over the golden gate
6:10 pm
between 5 and 6 a.m. how much rainfall? more than we thought. >> not done with the rain just yet. but coming up i'll explain why the next storm will not pack the punch that the current one did. we'll have that coming up in about 8 minutes. >> thank you. apple has hired a high- profile attorney in its encryption fight against the feds. ted olson known for successfully challenging california's ban on same-sex marriage before the supreme court. it's a sign of the potentially historic battle ahead pitting privacy against national security. ceo of apple tim cook said obeying the feds' order to unlock the san bernardino terrorists' phone would set a dangerous precedent and compromise the security of billions of customers. meantime, antivirus developer john mcafee is offering to hack the shooter's phone for free.
6:11 pm
mcafee says he is disturbed by the government's request and wants to help. it limits the number of times the password can be entered before the phone is wiped clean. he could use social engineering techniques. today the fbi searched the southern california home of the brother of the san bernardino shooter. >> it's crazy to think i have two kids so it's kind of crazy to think they are, like, right next door, you know, you would never expect it out of your neighbors. >> reporter: the fbi stormed a quiet corona neighborhood and woke up many families when agents pried open the front door of syed farook's brother's townhome. >> homeland security took out boxes of papers and computer and all -- anything that had any information on it. >> reporter: stacey says this is the fourth raid at his neighbor's home following the december 2 shooting. he wonders if the fbi search is
6:12 pm
connected to effort to unlock the iphone that apple won't help hack. >> i'm sure they are trying to find that code. if he knows it, i wish he would let them know so that everybody would be happy and feel safer. >> reporter: another neighbor posted a photo online of what appears to be a farook family member in the black and white jacket on the driveway. the raid has drawn outsiders to the neighborhood like debbie, who lives a mile away, but wanted to check out the scene. >> i think my main concern is i'm really sad for the people who lost their lives. i just hope that they can, um, you know, get to the bottom of what happened and make sure there's no one else involved in this area. >> reporter: the fbi won't say what they are searching for or what they took from the home but no arrests have been made. in corona, crystal cruz, kpix 5. a trucker shot on the job. his life changed in a second. >> i saw darkness when i was laying in that truck.
6:13 pm
>> tonight the light at the end of the tunnel for a true survivor and the wife who stood by him for months of recovery. >> an avalanche, close calls for cars and closures to some popular ski resorts. >> taking sideshows to a dangerous level. a car does donuts on the bay bridge. tonight we have uncovered a growing movement of daredevils on a mission to cause trouble. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

6:15 pm
shot near the oakland colis well, it's been a long road to recovery for an indiana trucker shot near the oakland coliseum. through it all his wife of five decades stood by his side. only on 5, our juliette goodrich tells us he is finally getting to go home. >> you take care. [ mwa ] >> i kept saying, i don't know whether i'm going to make it or not. and i really didn't know. >> reporter: after getting shot in the middle of the night in
6:16 pm
the cab of his 18-wheeler, indiana truck driver 72-year- old jerry matson has come to appreciate two things more than ever. how precious life is and how precious his wife is. she stood by his side. >> every day. that's one tough lady. >> reporter: we first interviewed jerry at highland hospital in oakland. three surgeries later and weeks of rehab at st. francis memorial hospital in san francisco the couple is finally able to leave the bay area heading home to auburn, indiana. >> it's only been 2 months and three days but who's counting. i'm ready to go home. >> reporter: the night jerry was shot outside the oakland coliseum, his life changed in a heartbeat. the shooter took off and is still at large. and for a moment, jerry thought he wouldn't make it. >> i saw darkness when i was laying in that truck. >> reporter: in the past jerry would sleep in his truck inside the oakland coliseum if he had a delivery. the night of the shooting, he
6:17 pm
was told by security he would have to park off grounds. a long-time career in trucking turned upside-down overnight. injury's plan for down the road? >> pickup truck. [ laughter ] >> i have had enough. no desire to get back into trucking. >> reporter: the couple wants to enjoy the comforts of home on a farm. >> check on my chickens and my birds and get him settled in. >> reporter: there's just one question jerry keeps asking over and over. >> i keep asking her why. >> why she is by your side? >> why she put up with me for 50 years. >> janet, why? >> i love him. i mean, we're just two peas in a pod, i guess. >> reporter: in san francisco, juliette goodrich, kpix 5. >> bet they had a great valentine's day, too. the st. francis foundation helped the couple when they were transferred to the hospital. the foundation helped put his

wife in a hotel because she was sleeping in a car. people will gather for a memorial service tomorrow for gus vegas. traffic might be impacted as the funeral leaves vallejo along westbound 780 for the police officer and then to westbound 80 into richmond. the memorial service for the officer will take place at 10 a.m. at the richmond memorial auditorium. vegas was fatally shot last week at his vallejo home after a domestic dispute. the father of his 6-year-old grandson is being charged with murder. the san jose police officer who lost his job following controversial tweets about the "black lives matter" movement has been reinstated by an independent arbitrator. officer phillip white has been off the force since december of 2014. there were calls for his firing after he posted a series of tweets. one of them read, threatening me or my family and i will use my god given and law appointed right and duty to kill you. hashtag, cops live matter. san jose's acting chief of police said the city and the department disagree with the arbitrator's conclusion but
6:19 pm
respect the process and will move forward with reinstatement. a series of avalanches in the tahoe area closed roads and shut down ski resorts. crews rescued three people when one of the avalanches hit a bus and car this morning on alpine meadows road. amazingly, no one was hurt. news cameras couldn't get to the site of the avalanches but you can see signs warning drivers that avalanches are common in the area. alpine meadows ski resort and most of squaw valley are closed today as a precaution. crews are using explosives to blast away unstable snow. paul, our rain has stopped but they are getting more snow up there. >> more snow tomorrow and you get the unstable snowpack when you get a warm snow melt and then that freezes and new snow on top. it slides like that. slide going down a couple thousand feet so more snow would stabilize things. more snow in the sierra is coming up tomorrow. more rain here. live hi-def doppler radar showing a band of light to
6:20 pm
moderate rain impacting lake, mendocino and sonoma counties. that's the tail end of the first storm of the week but by eureka that's the leading edge of the next storm moving through albeit much weaker no thunderstorms for us. we will receive more rain tomorrow. and this is an encouraging sign. the climate prediction center just put out their outlook for the next three months. that's march, april and may. el nino shuts down after may. so if we're going to get the rain from this very strong el nino it's going to be over the next three months and we are right on the edge. to our north is near normal rainfall is likely but this area to the green which is from san francisco and points southward the climate prediction center is still calling for above average rainfall likely over that three- month period. that doesn't talk about any one specific storm or one specific spot but a general overall theme that we should be wetter than average more likely than not over the next three months. wouldn't that be nice? napa 60 for a high today. san francisco 60. a couple of days removed from near 80 we're 20 degrees cooler. oakland today 64 degrees. we are clearing out. lots events for the weekend.
6:21 pm
things will be just fine. weather will be perfect. upper 50s for the chinese new year parade saturday night. 57 degrees in the evening. the monster jam if you are hanging out and walking from your car to, mostly of the event will be outside and we'll be clear, 59 degrees. i was thinking of oracle. let's take a look at our satellite and radar where we are seeing an active storm track over the bay area and northern california. storm number 2 will give us more rain tomorrow. not as much if you are really, really lucky a quarter inch around midday tomorrow. highs in the 60s. oakland 63. fremont 63. away from the water cooler. napa and concord only 59. so a couple of hours of light to moderate rainfall tomorrow. then we are done for a while. weekend we're dry with highs in the 60s. warmer but continued dry next week. i like that three-month outlook. we want the rain to stick around as long as it can to cut as much out of this drought as we can and looks like maybe
6:22 pm
through may we'll stay above average. >> great. >> thank you. oakland's mayor is calling out the governor. why she claims jerry brown broke a promise to his own city. >> and a driver busted trying to beat the traffic near a school. tonight, we found out the company who owns this suv is a repeat offender. ,,,,,,,,

your realtime captioner is linda marie macdonald. our top stories tonight, sheets of metal slamming, changing, grinding, mysterious noises are tormenting people in one sunnyvale neighborhood at all hours of the night. it's all coming from an unmarked apple facility. speculation is it has something to do with driverless cars. we checked with the city today. they had no information either. i'm joe vazquez in pacifica where demolition crews are hard at work tearing down 330 esplanade an apartment building that's been teetering on the edge of a cliff for years. >> sideshows nothing new to the bay area but this latest incident of a driver doing donuts on a bridge is taking things to a whole new level. only on 5, kpix 5's emily

turner showing us the dangerous stunts on the bay bridge and why authorities are worried about the copycats, too. emily. >> reporter: because the implications of these sideshows lasts far longer than the tire marks that you can still see on this span of the bay bridge. it was a scare for drivers in the bay bridge saturday but this sideshow was also concerning for other reasons. these moves are part a larger movement. aptly titled and organized with the hashtag bay area movement a search revealed dozens of videos of don't nuts, wheelies and other dangerous maneuvers and donuts some drawing massive clouds posted in the last six months. >> we'll look into it. it's an ongoing investigation. >> reporter: the driver of saturday's event got away but both this video and the larger movement are being looked at by investigators. the crimes have serious because of the risk and setting a

6:33 pm
on camera near meadows elementary school in millbrae. a witness posted the video to youtube yesterday. you can see a black suv going off the road and drive on the sidewalk to get around some slower moving vehicles. it happens inches from a school crossing sign. the suv is registered to the transportation company gs group limo. just this afternoon, san mateo county sheriff's deputies told us that another driver from that same limo company was cited for driving dangerously. this video also posted to youtube was from that same millbrae neighborhood. a little relief is on the way for drivers whose vehicles get towed from public areas in san francisco. thanks to a new five-year contract between the city and the tow company auto returns, the deal gives a break to tourists whose cars get stolen and then abandoned. the new contract also reduces tow fees that now stand at
6:34 pm
$491. drivers will save about 5%. you will save about 22 bucks but auto return can charge extra when drivers don't get their vehicles within 4 hours of being towed. those new fees go into effect april 1. a dramatic scene in hawaii today as a sightseeing helicopter makes a splash- landing. canit came down at pearl harbor near the tourist center for the u.s.s. arizona. a redwood city man saw it all. >> i seen the helicopter started sputtering about 500 feet. and the pilot did what i would say would be an amazing job. it was sputtering and coming down, he put it right just off the shore where everybody was. people started running. >> that redwood city man helped get some of the passengers out of the helicopter. a 16-year-old boy was apparently under water for several minutes sand in critical condition.

6:36 pm
building walls not bridges, francis said, is not christian. >> for a religious leader to question a person's faith is disgraceful. >> reporter: he blamed mexico for turning the pope against him and fired off this warning. >> if and when the vatican is attacked by isis, which is everyone knows is isis' ultimate trophy, i can promise you that the pope would have only wished and prayed that donald trump would have been president. >> the remainder of the candidates canvassed south carolina looking for last- minute support before saturday's republican primary. trump john kasich and jeb bush are gearing up for tonight's town hall here in columbia. >> that's between him and his creator. i don't think we need to discuss that. >> this country has a right and an obligation to control the process by which people enter the united states. >> reporter: this voter is sticking with trump. >> i'm not a tamp of the pope anyway. but i was raised southern baptist. >> reporter: the latest cbs news national poll shows donald
