5:15 am
disease in the pool. inspection reports found thousands of public pools, hot the accident and water playgrounds are shut down every year because of serious health and safety violations. one in every 8 inspections resulted in an immediate closure. in kiddie pools it was one in five the most common violation, excessive bacteria and improper chemical levels. >> it is surprising. again, i think that if a lot of those agencies are a lot of those public entities would be a little more pro-active, perhaps those numbers would be reduced. >> before diving in the cdc is recommending swimmers look at the inspection scores and do your own inspection of the pool's chemicals and drains. those lanes look better than traffic this morning. right? >> elizabeth? >> good one! [ laughter ] >> i like that. yeah. they do. especially if you are on 880. we just found this problem right now. it's heading into the downtown area northbound 880 at fifth avenue. it sounds like it was on the off-ramp but they temporarily shut down all lanes right now to clear it. you can see it's backed up for
5:16 am
an exit just in the northbound direction but it is a problem. southbound looks okay. we can show you what it looks like closer to the oakland coliseum. not seeing any backup this far but again approaching this, watch out. we are seeing some lanes blocked and some pretty big backups at least for this time of the morning and growing unfortunately. i mentioned a couple of ballgames happening later on this evening. they are happening both sides of the bay so you can have your pick which one you want to go to. a's play the yankees first pitch at 6:35. that's around evening commute time. on the other side of the bay in san francisco the san francisco giants take on the cubs at at&t first pitch at 7:15. so the series will cause some traffic tie-ups all weekend long with games friday through sunday. better news heading to oakland right now on the lower deck of the bay bridge. we were watching a fatal accident overnight involving a motorcycle. all lanes are clear. we never really saw much of a backup because it did happen so early. and along the golden gate, they did some lane changes early. it should be about 14 minutes
5:17 am
between san rafael and the golden gate bridge toll plaza. san mateo bridge there is a high wind advisory in effect. so far no delay from the east bay to the peninsula. no wind advisory for the altamont pass. innings -- another wind advisory for the altamont pass. drive time in the livermore valley and dublin interchange, only 15 minutes. so that's kind of a "friday light" drive time. looks good even though you can see the camera shaking. there is a wind advisory in effect. that's your latest "kcbs traffic." >> so good to see you, elizabeth. good morning, everybody. 5:17. our live weather camera looking out towards the bay bridge where we have partly to mostly cloudy skies around the microclimates. we have temperatures currently into the 50s except for livermore now tumbling into 49 degrees territory throughout the tri-valley. this is what you need to know. the wind will be a big story again today. around the rim of the bay picking up winds from 13 in mountain view to 22 at sfo,

5:19 am
thunderstorm towards the delta. also, right around the discovery bay byron and brentwood area back in through mountain house. and then we quickly clear out on saturday night leaving us with sunny skies on sunday and cool. tahoe, today winter weather advisory in effect until 11:00 this morning. snowfall up to 6." the swee chance of rain saturday, sunny next week. >> thank you. at the san diego zoo some little orange dogs have set quite a record. >> the sweet puppies make up the largest litter of dole dogs ever born in the u.s. all right. well, these tiny guys are also known as asian wild dogs and believe it or not they eat 30
5:20 am
pounds of meat a day. how is that possible? they are small. there are three boys and seven girls. they love the cameras. you can see they have a good time playing around but an animal supervisor says they are spunky and fun. >> they do behave like regular dogs to some extent. they are highly intelligent highly social a little hyperactive. they love water. they go swimming just about every day. >> before this litter the largest one born in the san diego zoo included only four puppies. >> i guess it makes sense, right? 30 pounds amongst those pups? you and your family can enjoy a fun evening at the san francisco zoo tonight. the zoo is holding their popular kidsfest event which raised money to support the zoo's educational efforts. it includes animal presentations, live music, magicians and arts and crafts. you have to buy a special ticket for the event, which begins at 5 p.m. and i'm dennis o'donnell.

5:31 am
resign and that suhr had agreed. >> greg suhr is a dedicated public servant who has again more than three decades of his life to the bayview and to this city. >> reporter: that announcement came just hours after an officer shot and killed a car theft suspect in the bayview. the latest in a series of deadly police shootings that have had a lot of people calling for reforms within the department and the man now in charge of implementing those reforms interim chief toney chaplin a 26 year veteran of the sfpd head of a new bureau on community oriented policing. we heard from him at a previous event. he spoke very candid will about the path that led him here. >> i had a real bad incident prior to coming to the police department. and it was in the army and we went clubbing in san jose. i won't go into details about it but it almost stopped me from being here sitting in front of you.
5:32 am
>> reporter: the search for a permanent chief is ongoing both within the department and nationwide. there is also a department of justice investigation going into the department started at the request of former chief suhr and mayor ed lee. live in san francisco, anne makovec, kpix 5. >> did this resignation come as a big surprise to a lot of people? >> reporter: yeah. it really did. just earlier this week, both mayor ed lee and greg suhr said there were no intentions on having him step down. and the city leaders have been sort of split on it. but it did seem like everybody had really kind of dug in their heels within the matter of a few days. so this flip-flop certainly was led by that shooting yesterday morning. a bill aimed at protecting police officers has gotten a thumbs-up from the state assembly. it involves officers who are seen in video of an incident the bill would give those officers at least three days' notice so they have a chance to
5:33 am
fight the video's release. the goal is to protect them from potential harassment, intimidation or harm. groups representing the media and public defenders are concerned that the bill would be a barrier to access public records. egyptian officials say they found wreckage from egyptair flight 804. authorities say navy vessels discovered apparently belongings and over items north of alexandria. some experts say an act of terrorism brought the plane down. >> there's tw possibilities, either a bomb in north africa where the plane had been earlier in the day or it could have been an individual on the plane even a pilot or copilot who became radicalized. >> the search tips for the plane's black box which is bound to reveal more about what the pilot experienced before the turn. with travel season and fire season approaching state lawmakers are scrambling to get new rules in place to control
5:34 am
drones. kiet do explains what drone operators may face. he joins us live from mineta international airport. >> reporter: the airport here certainly has had a couple of close calls with drones in the past couple of years and as such the faa has strict rules when it comes to drones flying around airports. when it comes to scenes of emergencies, not so much. but that is all going to change now in california. state assembly just passed a bill that would prohibit interfering with first responders at the scene of an emergency. it would also make it illegal for a drone to deliver contraband like drugs, weapons or cell phones, into a jail or prison. and it bans the use of a drone to stalk, harass or violate a restraining order. this became very real and an urgent issue last year at the scene of a couple of fires. in placer county cal fire planes and helicopters stopped flying when someone spotted a drone in the area of some burned homes and then in san bernardino another drone pilot flying around a wildfire meant cal fire aircraft were temporarily called off a wildfire that burned several
5:35 am
thousand acres and 20 cars on i- 15. cal fire said the drone pilot caused a lot of trouble that day. >> they had to ground the aircraft, the fire kept burning on to the 15 freeway and destroyed over a dozen cars. >> reporter: this drone bill now heads off to the senate for debate and vote. live in san jose, kiet do, kpix 5. well, if you have a drone today may not be a good day to fly it, right. it's going to be hard. >> we have wind and some cooler air mass in place. i took this picture at 2:45 this morning and you will see this out the door. this is a tree branch in the bike lanes. if you are a cyclist, just beware there's a lot of debris on the road that forces you into the other lane and that is dangerous when you have cars on the road, as well. so this i saw a common scene
5:36 am
everywhere this morning. take a look at the trees right now wavering in the wind. the waters are choppy. we have a small craft advisory in place around the bay. we have a gale warning 20 to 60 nautical miles outside the bay. winds up to 21 miles per hour around the rim of the bay now 24 at sfo. northwest winds gusting to 30 miles per hour. temperatures 50s, 60s warm spot 70 in santa rosa. rain is in the weekend forecast. i'll tell you which day to expect it coming up. yeah. traffic cameras are moving around quite a bit as well so usually they're a good indicator of how gusty the winds are in the morning. we also can see a traffic jam, unfortunately, or at least slowing right now. this is north of the oakland coliseum. we kind of zoomed in on the traffic there in the northbound lanes taillight the northbound
5:37 am
direction. there is a crash closer to downtown approaching fifth and you can see the drive time now is in the yellow 27 minutes between 238 and the maze. they have reopened at least one or two lanes but the accident was mainly on the off-ramp. they had to shut down lanes on the main lines of the freeway in order to clear it. and we do start to see brake lights right around high street. here's a live look at highway 4. this is in the clear. this is definitely "friday light." lock at that. not a delay at all approaching "a" street. 65 miles per hour. cruising towards 242 in concord. a suspected burglar is dead after entering the tented area of a fremont apartment complex that was being fumigated. he broke into the building on fremont boulevard yesterday as it was being treated for bedbugs. signs warned people to keep out. the man broke into an apartment and ransacked it. >> makes me sad.

5:39 am
foods. jill wagner of shares on the company's push to rebrand plus other trending topics. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, kenny and michelle. some concern that the fed will raise interest rates next month continues to spark a bit of a sell-off here on wall street. yesterday the dow was down 91. nasdaq down 26. applebee's is ringing the opening bell today. they want to turn around years of slowing sales. the company added wood fired grills to restaurant. they will serve usda choice steaks. they want to change the perception that casual dining largely means processed foods. and despite an improving job market two-thirds of americans say they would have a tough time coming up with $1,000 in the case of an emergency that is according to a new poll. >> so jill, what about memorial day coming up. we hear that's some way of i guess getting in shape? >> reporter: all right. if you are looking to eat a bit
5:40 am
healthier, there's one way to do it without [ indiscernible ] check out the absorb plate. it has 500 little holes on the bottom. they suck out oil from your food. it is said to cut about 30 calories from each meal. >> so my cheeseburger and french fries would be okay on this plate? >> from 900 calories to 870. there you go. >> saving me some. i like it.
