the oakland police departm's troubled radio welcome to your friday at 6:12. looks like we're looking at angel island and alcatraz. visibility is limited due to clouds and fog. we have have the friday forecast featuring thunderstorms coming up in about 4 minutes. the oakland police department's troubled radio system failed again. it has a rocky history at times leaving officers unable to communicate during emergencies. then during the radio glitch, opd's computer-aided dispatch system went out for three
6:13 am
hours. officers and firefighters used the database for addresses, phone numbers and information to respond to calls. during the outage, dispatchers had to write down incidents on paper. as far as the radios, opd says it went to a backup countywide system and everything was working within 40 minutes. one councilmember says that's not good enough. >> for me to hear that our radios are off and on sometimes is really -- it sets back public safety and holds back our police officers if they have no confidence in the previous radio system. >> the city council approved joining the countywide radio system in 2014. but the full transition has not yet been made. evacuations continue in western canada as a massive destructive wildfire continues to spread. so far, more than 80,000 people have fled fort mcmurray, alberta and surrounding areas and so far there are no reports
6:14 am
of deaths or injuries. as hena daniels reports, it shows no signs of slowing down. >> reporter: neighborhoods in fort mcmurray are still smoldering reduced to ashes with any evidence of life clouded in smoke. >> there's nothing there. there's so many homes, they are gone. >> reporter: at least 49 fires are burning across the area incinerating more than 1,000 homes. nearly 90,000 people have been evacuated, not knowing when they can go back or if there's even a home to go back to. >> still up surrounding the city and we are doing our very best here. >> reporter: this person had two dogs. one dog is with her in this evacuation shelter but lost her other dog buddy. >> my husband tried to get it. he had fire behind him but he didn't die in the house. >> reporter: a community volunteer put buddy in a box for the family to bury wherever
6:15 am
they end up. hena daniels, cbs news. >> cooler temperatures are expected but low humidity and strong winds are still major factors. we already paid here in the bay area but now new york will also have to pay a plastic bag fee. the new york city council voted 28-20 to begin charging a nickel for bags. some new yorkers oppose the measure saying they use the bags to line their trash cans but lawmakers say the tax will severely reduce the amount of plastic pollution the bags create. some of us just want a little extra leg room on a plane ride. others, the kind of luxury that costs $38,000. this cozy flight from new york to mumbai is being called the world's most expensive ride. they charge $38,000 for one way. but you have a personal butler and the chance to craft your own in-flight menu. best of all, a bathroom where you can actually breathe. you get your own one and it comes with a full height shower. >> it looks like a mini
6:16 am
apartment, doesn't it? >> yeah. basically a private plane, right? >> well, yeah. it looks like it. but $38,000? yeah, you can only dream. all right. let's check the roads. how's it looking? >> powerball winnings for that flight for sure. all right. it is getting busy out there. we have reports of this accident on highway 4 so you typically use westbound 4 out of bay point into concord, two left lanes blocked at willow pass. there are injuries involved. there is a lot of police presence as well so possible police activity. we'll get more details on that and try to confirm that best wound four at willow pass two lanes -- westbound 4 at willow pass two lanes blocked. it will take time to get through there hillcrest to 242. on 242 to 680 no problem. we have some brake lights along 580 altamont pass to 680. 15-minute ride making it to the connector at the dublin interchange but the bulk of the delays are out of tracy usually on the westbound side. it's moving a little slow through there.
6:17 am
again at 680 no troubles connecting over there. 680 looks good. southbound easy ride from 24 to five five -- from 24 to 580. no delays. bay bridge toll plaza metering lights are on backed up to the foot of the maze. it is lighter than usual through there. here's roberta. good morning, everyone. our live hi-def doppler radar not putting any rain showers here in the bay area right now. but we can see clearly that we do have some rain showers around the placerville area some thunderstorms and you can see the lightning strikes to the north of reno and also within the state of california. so i want to keep a watchful eye on the line of showers because our futurecast computer model does illustrate that we could see the potential of those showers moving into the fairfield area concord, clayton and walnut creek back through the tri-valley by 10:00 this morning with this right here, possibly a thunderstorm that pops and any thunderstorm could contain that cloud-to-ground lightning and small hail as
6:18 am
this goes west. light rain showers anticipated at noon in san francisco and look right there at san jose 101 into morgan hill, the potential of a thunderstorm, as well. we are going to keep the weather unsettled all afternoon into our saturday before the air mass begins to stabilize on sunday just in time for mother's day. meanwhile, this is the scene looking out towards san jose under a mostly cloudy sky. so far no reports of delays at mineta international airport, oakland or sfo. temperatures are mild as you get ready to kick-start your friday into the 50s. area of low pressure is to the south of us. we are seeing the wraparound moisture in a counterclockwise fashion. random thunderstorms possible today, warming sunday. satellite and radar this is the area of low pressure digging to the southeast, precipitation is lifting to the north and traversing to the west. so meanwhile, as that happens, all the rain is moving from our inland areas towards the coast. that's where we had the best potential of thunderstorms inland. and with all the thunderstorms and the moderate rainfall in the tahoe area today and
6:19 am
tomorrow, it looks like we could see some minor stream rising waters. so watch out for that possibility of flooding in the tahoe area. 6:08 asunrise. 8:05 is sunset. smack in between, 60s for the most part 50s at the seashore. here's your extended forecast including that important mother's day forecast. that's when we begin to settle down after several days of instability here in the bay area. monday through thursday, is the warming trend. 64 at the beaches on mom's day to 74 degrees away from the bay. great day still to go on outside and enjoy your mother's day brunch. >> yes. >> and for a baseball game, too, right? >> we're going to our family and you're going to brunch. >> yeah. >> and you're going furniture shopping. >> because six years ago i bought this dining table off craigslist when i was single and i think the wife wants a new one. >> your wife said no more. >> happy mother's day! >> of course. >> that's right. we hear at kpix 5 wanted to take some time to thank all the moms out there who make it
