second. i'm kenny choi. this is a live shot of mission control of the solar powered plane called solar impulse 2 as it gets ready to take off from moffett field continuing its journey around the world. >> right now in mountain view the two swiss pilots are taking off from the bay area, getting ready to in one very high tech aircraft. >> and their solar powered plane is on an around the world journey. kiet do is live at moffett field where the record breaking plane is heading next. >> reporter: ground crews are going through a preflight check right now and it looks like takeoff is scheduled for 5:00 a.m. weather is perfect, calm winds
and it is all systems go as far as we know. once in the air, a 60 person team in mission control in monaco takes over. there's a rest room in that plane and so he is ready to get through this multiday flight. now, this is what the plane looked like around 3:00 this morning as it was getting wheeled out of its portable hangar. it's made out of carbon fiber so light enough that crews can push it by hand. two pilots take turn flying the plane on alternate legs of the journey. this time around it is andres boshburg who suited up for the 16 hour flight to phoenix. it can fly in the air forever, powered by the sun, recharging its batteries at night and really the only thing from keeping it -- keeping it from doing so is the physical limitations of the pilots. they are showing that clean technology works, feasible and makes good sense. >> not only protecting the environment, it is mainly a way to sustain the chemical growth and job creation and profit for the industry because if you
replace all the polluting, outdated devices by this new modern technology, which is cleaner, it's an incredible development that is possible for the industries who understand this. >> reporter: now, this is not a fast plane. it's all about slow and steady with solar impulse 2. cruises at about a couple thousand feet in the air, goes anywhere from 30 to 40 miles per hour depending on the winds. arrival time in phoenix is set for 9:00 p.m. tonight and then after that, they head out to new york and then final destination for this round the world trip is abu dhabi sometime in the springtime, maybe even early summer. we are live at moffett field, kiet do. >> what can you tell us about the electric bike that chases the plane after it takes off from the runway. >> reporter: because the plane is so light and the wing span is so large, they actually have to hold it on either side of it, two humans have to hold it once they release it from its
holding zoo. and i see the propeller starting to spin there. the electric bikes go up to 50 miles an hour. they are not street legal but they chase a plane as it's on the ground and you can see one of the bikes there but, yeah, that's how they have to do it because it will tip over side to side without the humans holding it on either end but looks like they are getting ready to power this thing up and so long as they head across the united states to make the historic flight around the world. >> this is exciting. we are going to check back in with you in a short time. there they go. look at that. a local hunger strike now in its second week. jackie ward is live in san francisco where protesters have some issues with the police department and the mayor. jackie. >> reporter: it's day 12 now, that strikers, they are still here but they are getting increasingly frustrated with the mayor's office and now they are ready to make moves surviving on just liquids for the past week and a half. a core group of five people
continue to demand police chief greg suhr be removed from his position. tomorrow they will march to city hall where they want to meet with mayor ed lee. mayor lee has continued to support chief suhr so the march will take place tomorrow at 12:30. in the mission district, jackie ward, kpix5. happening today the public will be able -- oh, okay. we are going to moffett field right now because solar impulse 2, if we are looking at this correctly, just took off. there we go, it was scheduled for 5:00 a.m., just a few minutes past five right now but you can see solar impulse 2 up in the sky. >> there it is. >> there's a better shot of it. there we go. all right. it is embarking on this around the world journey, it started in abu dhabi, will end in abu dhabi maybe sometime in the spring, late spring or summer. and it's been quite the journey, right? >> it has. you know, when you have a plane like this, it's a first of its kind solar powered plane trying
to go around the world. you're going to have issues and it did have some issues, it had to stop in hawaii for nine months, it was grounded for nine months because of battery issues so they had to work on that so a lot of people have their eyes on this plane because it is a historic mission and certainly a lot of people are excited about this plane's journey. >> and this is pretty amazing because the ideal flight speed for solar impulse 2 is 28 miles per hour, but, of course, that speed can double during the day when the sun's rays are the strongest, which is pretty amazing when you're talking about a solar powered plane so it can even go faster, but 28 miles per hour is the ideal flight speed for this. >> and just a couple weeks ago or i think it was last week we saw maybe the solar impulse 2 plane coming into san francisco. there are great shots of that plane right near the golden gate bridge so that was exciting for so many people to see. >> a lot of people -- >> i think that was a week and a half ago, right? >> a lot of people are interested in this especially here i think because of silicon
valley and the technology and the -- because it is a solar plane and it's run with no fuel so it's a pretty neat flight, but, again, on its way it's going to make a couple of stops in the u.s. before heading overseas. >> yeah, one day roberta is going to jump on that plane too. >> i would love to be there. >> she would. >> kiet do has the best assignment in the whole wide world today. >> but he's not on the plane. you would want to be on the plane. >> it's not going to get to phoenix until 9:00 tonight. i hope they have peanuts on board and they are getting some food. >> yes, no kidding. >> so think there's electric bikes alongside of them to hold down the wings. they are taking off at this particular time because these are when the winds are generally the lightest and we will be picking up winds today out of the southwest 20 miles per hour. last week we had record wind speeds in the area five to six straight days in a row. sfo, their winds were clocked at 40 miles per hour for five consecutive days which we had
not seen for seven years. when we are looking out at sfo into the peninsula, into the mountain view areas, the winds are slight, under five. we have a little bit of the cloud bank out there but for the most part the clouds are above 600 feet except along the immediate seashore where we have the clouds moving very tight. it's the return of an onshore push. it's visible by our satellite and radar, that shield of clouds due west of san francisco trickling onshore. we have a return of the low clouds and fog at the beaches and that's going to bring down our numbers in comparison to the past couple of days. 61 degrees at pacifica, partly cloudy in oakland today but still mild in the mid-70s. 70s will be common in our inland areas, down from the 80s yesterday. tell you what we will do. at 5:18, the full forecast and that's just minutes away. george. here's a check from the accident century, slowing the ride for 580 into the altamont, this at grant line, and grant line crosses 580 in two locations. this is the one before the 580 interchange out there near
twoaf -- 205 slowing up the road. for your ride on highway 80 to the bay bridge, no delays here for the westbound ride. the golden gate bridge, as you see 580 southbound down to 14 minutes from central san rafael. there's your bay bridge ride. they have cleared out the delays in the toll plaza. live look at the ride on highway 101, take a trip down to the bayshore he freeway, no delays for the northbound trip as you head up past woodside. guys. >> george, thank you. today marks the fifth anniversary of the death of al- qaeda leader osama bin laden. president barack obama spoke to cnn about the raid that killed him and the state of the war on terror. the president said that if the u.s. had not launched a raid then, that bin laden may have slipped away. >> after the discussions with the principals, it was clear to me that this was going to be our best chance to get bin
laden. that if in fact we did not take the action that he might slip away. >> bin laden was killed in a u.s. special forces raid on his compound in pakistan. back to campaign 2016, time to break down the battle for delegates. you can see donald trump is just shy of 1000. he needs 241 more in order to gain the nomination and that could happen here in california on june 7th. on the other side of the aisle, you can see hillary clinton has a substantial lead over bernie sanders. clinton needs just 218 more delegates for the nomination. and while the clock winds down to november, the presidential race only grows more tense. over the weekend there were violent encounters at donald trump rallies leading to arrests in the bay area and beyond. and hillary clinton suggested that trump would take the country backward. bernie sanders and ted cruz made clear that they are still in the fight but the frontrunners stole the show with some fairly strong
language. >> when you divide people against one another, you don't know what's going to happen. we are seeing violence, violence at political rallies. >> we can't continue to allow china to rape our country and that's what they are doing. >> at tomorrow's indiana primary 57 delegates are at stake for republicans, democrats are competing for 94. time now is 5:10. the streets of san francisco get weirder than normal. next a closer look at the -- how weird streak faired. and baseball goes to the dogs. why guiness world record officials attended a professional baseball game this weekend. i'm in the kpix5 weather center. good morning, everybody. we will be raining cats and dogs this week. we've got that forecast straight ahead. and we are looking at delays now for interstate 580 and 205 in the westbound direction leading into the altamont pass, really seeing slowing with our accident at grant line. the kpix5 morning news will be right back.
of course... are you? nope animated you know i'm always looking for real honey for honey nut cheerios well you've come to the right place. great, mind if i have another taste? not at all mmm you're all right bud? never better i don't know if he likes that. yeah part of the complete breakfast most fast food places use formulas to create their combos. but all that math, doesn't always equal something tasty.
at my place, you can get a mouthwatering sourdough bacon ranch combo. with a full size beef patty, bacon, and creamy ranch sauce, on toasted sourdough bread. plus hot & salty fries and a freestyle drink for just $4.99. because flavor always beats formulas. the sourdough bacon ranch combo, just $4.99 for a limited time. california coast. the coast foot powerboat welcome back. a dozen people were rescued from a sinking boat off the southern california coast. the coast guard says the 35- foot powerboat was sinking yesterday about 1 1/2 miles south of marina del rey. it eventually stopped but took on a lot of water and had to be towed into the marina. in the d.c. area, a tough
commute in store for many who rely on the mark train, that's because a derailment that happened yesterday morning is still being cleaned up blocking off one of the mark train routes. this csx train derailed yesterday morning sending 15 cars off the track and spilling hazardous materials and so far no reports of any injuries. >> right now the leak has been stopped. we are working with the -- with csx to figure out the next steps in getting this cleaned up, getting any spill remediated and returning the rails to services as quickly as we can. >> train officials aren't sure what caused the cars to jump the track. being referred to as black magic at sap center in downtown -- the black cat ran right across the ice. the sharks won that game 5-2 and they won again last night. now, it's not clear where it came from but now the team is working to help the good luck charm. >> going to use this
organization to help see if we can find the rideful owner and if a rightful owner can't be found we will go through the proper procedures to make the cat adoptable. >> and the sharks play again tomorrow in nashville. san francisco is known for having some colorful characters and they were out in full force yesterday. this is the 17th annual how weird street fair, that's on howard street. more than 10,000 people showed up in costume and there were dancers, artists, musicians and just utter strangeness. >> what is this festival about? >> self-expression. >> self-expression and being free. >> and being weird but not in a bad day. >> yeah, not in a bad way. >> gloriously weird. >> as fabulously weird as you can get. >> it's weird but cool, right? the festivities made traffic a nightmare in south of market but bad traffic was the only normal thing about it. >> that's right. time now is 5:15. any weird things happening, any weird situations in traffic,
george? >> you know, there was something weird this morning, there was a woman who phoned the chp that said she was driving from the bay area up to winters towing a car and she lost the car somewhere between fremont and the carquinez bridge. >> whoops. >> i know. and she called the chp and says there was a car behind me and it's not there anymore and the chp is still looking for it. they haven't found it yet. we found some slow traffic for you, take a look here at the ride on interstate 580 westbound, as we are tracking two separate incidents here at north flynn road, our newest accident, two big rigs on the shoulder, also our earlier occurring accident at grant line is still tying up the ride. and we continue to monitor delays for the trip on highway -- actually, here's the 580 right westbound leading into dublin, we will show you that . first look how crowded as we head towards the 680 interchange. we started with this accident
on 880 northbound at dixon landing road, it is still there and slowing the ride. the chp reports this is a pretty serious injury crash and that's why it's taking so long to clear. your bay bridge ride, no delays now as you come in from the mcer -- macarthur maze. the altamont pass ride is going to continue to climb. 238 to the maze looks good from the nimitz freeway northbound. let's head over to the weather center. >> a woman lost her car on the freeway? >> she was towing it behind her. >> i lost my car at the parking lot at the shopping center. oh, okay. not even a full moon. that won't even happen until the 21st of this month. hi, everybody. good morning to you. this is our live weather camera from the transamerica pyramid. we are looking due east and we are looking at some overcast conditions. it's a return of the robust sea breeze and all the low clouds, the patchy fog, we are cloudy
in san francisco at 53, a bit overcast in some of our inland areas to the north. santa rosa right now reporting some clouds at 51. michael, he's one of my favorite -- okay, he is my favorite caltrans worker and he is with our weather watch program. this morning he is reporting from oakland, he says beautiful morning, it's cool, calm and quiet right now at 54 degrees. shhh, it is calm. good morning. we have the winds under 5 miles per hour for the most part around the peninsula at sfo, it is at five in san francisco. across the bay in hayward at six. calm winds that allowed solar impulse 2 to go ahead and take off from moffett field. this week southwest winds 10 to 20 during the afternoon hours, here's the -- i wonder if you can hear the foghorn in san francisco this morning. haven't heard that in quite some time. clouds pushed onshore will retreat but partly cloudy skies due to an area of low pressure to the north of us. that afternoon breeze does kick in and then midweek we have an
unsettled weather pattern because we have the system stacking up, there's the second one out there over the open waters, computer models not in agreement at all what to do with the system. so we are calling on our futurecast. here's the clouds lining the coast in san francisco all the way to the lunch hour, hanging tight to the san mateo coast all day long. we've got the sunshine inland but we will be three to 6 degrees cooler inland. you will feel the difference at the beaches. the sunup is at 6:12, not going to see it along the coast today. sunset at 8:02, we are going to see about two minutes and three seconds of additional daylight in comparison to yesterday as our days get a little bit longer heading towards summertime. 60s beaches, 60s, 70s bay side, today 70s across the peninsula, up to about 80 degrees our outside number in the antioch, brentwood, tracy, discovery bay area, otherwise 70s at the bay, upper 50s, low 60s at the coastline, just chances of rain right now wednesday through friday. that's a look at your monday forecast. back to you, gang. >> thank you. time now is 5:19. this weekend america's love of
dogs and baseball were brought together in one record breaking way. >> the plan was pretty simple. get over 1000 dogs to show up at a sporting event and you can see pet owners were delighted to take part. it happened yesterday at the chase field. this is in arizona. pet smarte and the diamondbacks -- petsmart and the diamondbacks teamed up to make it happen. >> it's great. i don't have to lea them at home. i know he can come and watch the game and have fun with us and actually be with other pets. so it's fun. >> word should come in soon about whether the massive pet event was in fact a guiness record. sap with the sharks trying to make it a 2-0 series lead and the warriors tip off their series against the portland trail blazers. highlights straight ahead. what's cool about your school? you can e-mail your nomination to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. we may come and feature your school on the show. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

activated. i'll have a complete traffic check coming right up. good morning, everyone. it is monday, may 2nd, i'm michelle griego. >> and i'm kenny choi. in mountview two swiss pilots have just taken off in one very flashy aircraft. >> yes, thinker plane is solar powered and the men at the helm are taking it around the world. kiet do tells us about the record breaking aircraft and where it's heading next. kiet. >> reporter: yeah, the plane took off less than 30 minutes ago, still quite a buzz out here in moffett field. let me step out of the way and show you, the man in the orange you see right there, he is one of the co-pilots, his name is bertrand piccard, the cofounder of the the plane and its mission to go around the world and he is out here visiting with a lot of the people who have come out this early hour to see the plane take off. he says that he got inspired when he met some astronauts at cape kennedy a couple of decades ago that he wants to make sure he reaches out to younger generations to inspire them to be the next explorers. the plane took off exactly at
5:03 this morning. it was completely silent. the propellers fired up and off it went in an instant. it is slow going, flies at no more than 30 to 40 miles an hour, while in darkness it is powered up with batteries but once the sun comes up, that charges the batteries and in theory the plane can fly forever, powered by the sun. next stop is phoenix and at this pace it will take about 16 hours or so. here is what the plane looked like at 3:00 this morning as it wheeled out of its portable hangar. they have been in the bay area for more than a week and have been treated like royalty. they were actually in the bay area exactly three years ago to the day and they were looking forward to being back in a place where they feel a strong connection to the innovative spirit. this plane itself is a technological marvel, been developed and built over the past 15 years. nearly every i have been of the wings are covered in solar panels. this around the world flight is meant to show the world that clean technology can accomplish amazing things. they also want to inspire the next generation of engineers and entrepreneurs who will not
only change but save the world from climate change. >> when you see the eyes of the children shining when they look, you know, at this airplane, you understand also what this can mean and how it can help, you know, the young generation to find its way into the future. >> reporter: back here live, quite an energetic scene at moffett field. again, this is the other co- pilot. they alternate taking turns here, this is piccard. solar impulse 2 set to arrive in phoenix around 9:00 p.m. tonight. we are live at moffett field, kiet do, kpix5 news. >> did they say -- >> reporter: they love being here. a lot of interest from companies, they have had a lot of meetings, a lot of late night outs, they have set up partnerships for the next phase of solar impulse for impulse 3. we will talk about later on in our broadcast. they say all this interest, all the friends that come and visit
has been very exhausting. they have not gotten as much sleep as they want to but in any event, being in silicon valley is tough but in a good way. back to you. >> thank you. developing now, the search is on for the gunman in a shooting outside the federal courthouse. police say that around 9:30 last night, two men began to argue. the fight escalated and one shot the other in the back according to authorities. they say that the gunman then made a getaway on a motorcycle. the victim is in stable condition and expected to be okay. in lake berryessa, a 14- year-old boy has drowned. it happened yesterday on the west shore of the napa county lake. investigators haven't released the boy's name or the circumstances surrounding the drowning. police in seattle say that they arrested nine people during anticapitalism protests, five officers were injured yesterday as may day demonstrations got out of hand. one officer was hit in the head with a rock and another was hit by a molotov cocktail but none of the injuries were serious. eight men and a juvenile girl
face charges ranging from obstruction to assault and property destruction. >> we have said all along, we will march around town with people all day long as long as they are peaceful and, unfortunately, once this all started and once property damage started, we took action. >> the rowdy evening march followed a peaceful gathering in seattle earlier by supporters of immigrants and workers. and may day scenes in the bay area were much more calm. hundreds marched in oakland yesterday calling for better wages, racial equality and an end to what they call unjust deportations. there were no reports of major problems but police kept a close eye on the protests in the wake of last year's looting on auto row. >> never been anything but people and the excessive amount of policing, that can do more to take things in the opposite direction than just the people in the streets together. >> the may day march in san jose was also without major trouble. it went from king and story roads on the east side to
downtown where a rally was held at city hall. protesters called for more affordable housing as well as better wages and immigration laws. some hunger strikers say they won't eat until they get a meeting with the mayor of san francisco. the reason they want major changes in the police department. kpix5's jackie ward is live in san francisco with their story. jackie. >> reporter: michelle, this is the beginning of day 12 for the hunger strikers. as you can see behind me, they haven't budged in their stance against police chief greg suhr and they are taking it to city hall soon. tomorrow afternoon they will march from the police station here in the mission to the mayor's office where they will demand a meeting. this has gone on longer than some people thought and strikers tell us they are feeling the love from the community. >> we have had people come up to us crying, this is real. people are like, wait, you guys aren't going to kill yourself out here. we are not going to let you. >> reporter: the core group out here call themselves the frisco 5 and say they have only had liquids over the past week and
a half. this is all in response to the recent police shootings. this group has been calling for the removal of chief greg suhr for 12 days now and tomorrow is when they will march to city hall at 12:30 in the afternoon. from the mission, jackie ward, kpix5. happening today, students at several csu campuses are protesting tuition hikes after a four-year freeze, the csu's board of trustees recommended charging higher tuition. students say that it's unfair on top of tuition increases, they are also protesting cuts at the school's college of ethnic studies. it is 5:36 right now. let's get another check on weather. a little bit of a cooldown today, right? >> we will have a cooldown, the return of the low clouds and fog along the coast. not notice it so much in our inland areas, well maybe a little bit. three to 6 degrees cooler there. you're going to notice it in san francisco. we will drop almost 14 degrees today. >> wow. >> that's a return of the stratus that we actually call the low clouds and the fog. good morning, everybody. get to our live hi-def doppler
radar. not a rain drop in sight. that could change by wednesday. this is the scene looking out towards the bay right now from san francisco looking due east and we do have clear skies there, but if we are looking due west, that's where we have the clouds stacked up at this hour. 44 degrees in livermore, 54 in san jose. yesterday we had a temperature span of 78 in san francisco to 86 degrees in concord. now this right here, shield of clouds pushing onshore, a cooler day ahead with partly cloudy conditions all due to a trough to the north of the bay area. 60s beaches, 60s, 70s, bay side, up to about 80-degree towards discovery bay and brentwood. that's the full forecast. that's still coming up at 48 minutes after the hour. we are tracking major delays for interstate 580 and the ride through and to the altamont pass. a pair of accidents, one at north flynn, the other at grant line and believe it or not, these are not big crashes and not even blocking lanes but they have turned the drive time into a one hour trip out
towards the dublin interchange. so disregard that sign that you see at the bottom of your screen. here at the bay bridge, metering lights are active and that started to push the backup toward the maze but it's not there yet. your drive times about 16 to 17 minutes and a quick look at the bayshore freeway. this live shot shows 101 in the northbound direction and the ride looks pretty good. the delays are southbound with a stalled big rig at marsh road. michelle. >> thank you. airbnb wants to make political allies in order to keep home sharing afloat in the bay area. the city's ethics commission claims that airbnb, the home sharing site, poured $257,000 late last week into campaigns for moderate democratic candidates and their issues. the donations come just days after progressives at the board of supervisor threatened fines and even misdemeanor charges for home sharers violating city laws. >> they are intensely swaying
the election. they have just dropped a quarter of a million dollars and 25,000 additional dollars for the progress slate that is friendly to their interest. it is unheard of. >> last year airbnb helped defeat a local proposition that would have put different restrictions on home sharing sites. round 2 of the nba playoffs off to a nice start for the warriors. in oakland yesterday they beat the trail blazers in game one, 118-106. the win over portland came despite the absence of steph curry who is unable to play because of a knee injury. fans don't be surprised that the team is able to succeed without curry. >> it's not going to be easy, but if they stick to the game plan, they will be just fine. >> we got this. curry is out but we are averaging 30 points over. it's good no matter what. >> all good. game 2 is tomorrow evening in oakland. the sharks are also looking pretty good in round two of the stanley cup playoffs. joe pavelski scoring this goal for san jose, one of three
goals for san jose yesterday evening as the sharks won 3-2 at home over the predators. san jose now has a two games two none lead in the series. game 3 is tomorrow evening in nashville. new this morning, puerto rico will miss its largest payment to date. the $422 million debt payment was scheduled to be paid to the u.s. government today. the territory's governor said he ordered a debt moratorium and blocked the payment. in a televised address, he said he had to invoke emergency powers because no help was coming from washington, d.c. the payment was owed by the island's powerful government development bank which has raised money for various branches of government. time now is 5:40. well, nissan isn't taking chances when it comes to air bags. >> joe wagner tells us why the company is recalling millions of cars in the u.s. >> reporter: investors are waiting for the april jobs report, comes out friday. last weeks the markets finished lower, the dow fell 57 points
