5:04 am
here, more than 5% are mega- commuters. and that's one whole percentage point more than los angeles. so what is the problem? according to the study, they say it's because of affordable housing. more people are living outside of silicon valley and commuting in so they can find affordable housing outside our region. live in sunnyvale, maria medina, kpix 5. in just a few hours, crews will start digging through a crime scene at sonoma state university. a body was discovered on the campus yesterday. kpix 5's anne makovec is live on the scene with details. anne reporter: a disturbing discovery and a real mystery at this point. a body found in the wooded area here behind me. this is off of parking lot m. you can see that the sonoma county sheriff's department has part of this parking lot blocked off and they are expected to be back here to comb this area at 8 a.m. a landscaper made this

disappointed this weekend! the recreational season kicks off saturday, after all. but recent tests have sparked one warning. the recreational season for dungeness crab kicks off saturday. test have sparked a warning. it's not a good idea to eat the guts of crabs caught north of point reyes. they tested for domoic acid which can make people sick. but the meat itself is safe to eat. commercial season opens up november 15. the general public can now get a unique view of pacific salmon swimming upstream. the sonoma county water agency has completed an underwater viewing room with 8 windows along the russian river. it's part of a $12 million
5:15 am
project that included an inflatable dam, intended to help the salmon with their migration. >> this is one of the future projects in the bay area where you can go underground under the river and get eye to eye with the salmon. >> you need to sign up on the sonoma county water agency's website to do that. there's an alternative to the epipens that's hundreds of dollars left but patients don't know about it. the generic version is the epinephrine auto injector. it contains the same medicine and is effective. but one local doctor says that the reason many physicians are not prescribing it is because of marketing. >> it's like kleenex. we don't say facial tissue. when i think of an epinephrine auto injector i think of epi- pen. there are many providers who
5:16 am
think epi-pen or generic equivalent who don't realize that the pharmacist can't substitute it. >> doctors say if your pharmacy doesn't carry the generic brand you can ask them to order it. the manufacturer of epi-pen made headlines this year when he raised the price nearly 400%. it is 5:16 right now. roqui has a check on the roads. >> let's head to san leandro where we have some trouble going on due to some roadwork that's been out there. it's supposed to clear around 6 a.m. but we'll see about that. all right. northbound 880, right 238 in san leandro there's roadwork causing cars to drive at 12 miles per hour. last report was 5 miles an hour. so we'll keep an eye on this. avoid the area because the drive time between 238 and the maze is a slow 25 minutes. but on this end, looking good in both directions. this is the nimitz. moving to the altamont pass, traffic here off 205 at 46 miles per hour so not too bad
5:17 am

5:18 am
you, george, 56. here's what you need to know on this thursday. it's going to be a pretty autumn day with temperatures slightly above average. seasonal highs friday and saturday and a chance of early- morning showers on sunday morning. satellite and radar, the clouds are associated with an area of low pressure providing a little bit of light rain around the northwestern part of the state of california according to this particular sleet imagery from goes west ten. we have a huge dome of high pressure encompassing the west coast that's going to provide us with dry weather. however, that storm to the north of us is generating some very high surf and, in fact, our swells are anticipated to build 20 to 27 feet along the huge highlighted area that does encompass the entire coastline of the bay area. here's our futurecast. and at lunch hour today, clear skies. tomorrow morning at this time a
5:19 am
little stratus off the coast. otherwise mostly sunny skies. by saturday morning we start to see the return of the marine layer. by saturday night increasing clouds from a secondary system albeit weak, it will produce a slight chance of rain showers. san jose lunchtime today in the low 60s. your afternoon high temperature 67 degrees. your afternoon high will top off at 72 at mineta international airport. i'm going with warmer conditions around the rose garden district, alum rock 75 through willow glen. upper 60s in san francisco. upper 60s at the bay to the peninsula. 70s away from the bay outside number 77 in the gilroy area. west wind at 15. here's your extended forecast. warmer conditions on friday. saturday we cool gently from that approaching weak system with the minimal chance of rain showers early sunday. and speaking of sunday, it's our favorite time of the year where we dial our clocks back one full hour. we say favorite time only because we get an extra hour of sleep to get ready for the raiders game on sunday night.
5:20 am
6 p.m. against the denver broncos. >> it should be an exciting game. >> i know. >> we are both excited. >> derek carr! man of the year. >> michael crabtree! >> him too. >> okay. [ laughter ] >> we'll see. [ laughter ] in the sacramento area, more and more people are complaining about a smell that's not so pleasant. >> yeah. we learned all that trouble comes from bats going to the bathroom. little guys like these can be seen all over downtown sacramento. [chuckling] some bat rescuers believe a quarter million of them roam the yolo causeway. they often sleep in crevices between buildings, and the bay area may start to get them, too. about 12 species of bats live around san francisco. one rescuer says their mating season makes the smell stronger. >> and in the fall, when the males are starting to think about the females for the winter, that gets even a little stronger. so right now we might be noticing some of that in addition to their normal odors.
5:21 am
>> but experts say strong odors aside, bats do wonders in control the insect population. and i'm dennis o'donnell. coming up, an epic world series ends with a bang. the party in chicago is still going on this morning. it might go into spring training! the unbelievable event that led up to the party coming up. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,

5:24 am
inside the stadium last night. ning, the chicago they have always won so many years before. they came so close to doing it again. breaking hearts again. if they were going to win it, this is how they were going to win it! >> wow. just a bit of reaction from inside the stadium last night. this morning the chicago cubs and fans are waking up world series champions for the first time in 108 years. the game stretched into a tenth inning following an unprecedented 17 minute rain delay. dennis has the highlights reporter: good morning, everyone. given the history, it is hard to imagine a more memorable world series. the magic of the game 7 captured all the drama, emotion and the 108 years of a drought unmatched in sports history. charlie sheen better known in cleveland as wild thing, check it out. game 7 top of the 6th, cubs leading 5-3 and there goes david ross a final game of his

5:26 am
in the first place i don't think. but now we can move forward. >> the longest drought title now belongs to the cleveland indians. they have not won the world series since 1948. warriors and the thunder, remember kevin durant's old team? the thunder? they are in town tonight. and that is where our sportscast will emanate from. i'm dennis o'donnell. have a great day. south bay traffic worse than los angeles? the hot spots that made the list. >> and a body found on a college campus in the north bay. we'll tell you what investigators are planning to do here today. ,,

5:32 am
and clinton is just 3 points ahead in north carolina. and that's exactly why both hillary clinton and donald trump will make appearances in those states today. both are scrambling to earn last-minute votes in crucial states along the path to victory. clinton continues to paint trump as being unfit to lead the nation. >> imagine having a president who demeans women, mocks the disabled, insults latinos, african-americans, muslims, pows. [ screaming ] >> trump inches to sharply criticize clinton as wrong for the job. >> if hillary clinton were to be elected, it would create an unprecedented and protracted constitutional crisis. >> trump is also touting his

for anybody planning to take a stroll on a bay area beach, the coast guard is warning, watch out! today the waves rolling in could be 20 feet tall so coast guard crews are urging extreme caution if you get near the water. so be very careful. >> you were out on the water yesterday? >> it was like 5 to 8. >> we have an empty spot here. >> i didn't know that. i was just testing out the surf. [ laughter ] >> what was it, 5 to 8 yesterday, about that. it was head high over there. >> not too choppy, not too rough? >> um, conditions were decent. but i'm sure they are going to get a lot rougher this week. >> we want be mindful. unless you're experienced like kenny who surfs almost every day, don't go into the water. swells are already 13 feet and they will build today and tomorrow. when you have that kind of surf, you generally do have also the rip currents and you do have the sneaker waves. so never turn your back on
5:35 am
what, michelle? >> an angry ocean! >> outside now we have clear skies, temperatures we are into the 40s and 50s. i was comparing these temperatures to just yesterday's numbers and we are a couple of degrees warmer than yesterday. we have that high surf advisory posted for that right there, that huge highlighted yellow area. that's all our beaches. now, temperatures onshore today will be warmer than what they were yesterday from 60s and 70s at the beaches, rockaway beach at 70. low 70s common around the peninsula today to 75 degrees in morgan hill. and 77 in gilroy. around the rim of the bay the low 70s. but inland we go to about 75 degrees in pleasanton, also in alamo, blackhawk, low 70s in concord, clayton and walnut creek. also around the vallejo area, temperatures topping off in the low 70s. 60s and 70s common around the north bay. meanwhile our temperatures at 75 degrees in cloverdale. we'll see 72 in clearlake. we do have a big change for the weekend forecast. we'll talk about that coming up but first, let's send it over
5:36 am
to roqui theus. >> thank you, roberta gonzales. let's take a look at our bay area traffic. we had a serious problem in san leandro making your commute from 238 to the maze up to 30 minutes but now it's back down to just 15 minutes. this roadwork on northbound 880 has officially been cleared. they were laying down pavement and that's why it was so bad earlier this morning. here's a look live at the nimitz freeway. 238 to the maze will just take but 15 minutes out the door. another story here at the bay bridge toll plaza, those metering lights are on now. and traffic is starting to back up carquinez bridge along the eastshore freeway to the maze will take you 21 minutes. and then expect about a 15- minute drive through the toll plaza. that's your traffic. michelle, to you. >> all right, roqui. thank you. when traffic gets terrible on bay area highways, it's easy to think things are far worse in l.a. but a new study shows they have it better than we do. maria medina reports from sunnyvale. >> reporter: that's right.
5:37 am
you know, traffic running smoothly right now, but soon here it's going to be a much different story. this is one of the hot spots that made that study highway 101 through sunnyvale and mountain view, also making the list is highway 237 in milpitas and 280 in downtown san jose. so what makes these so horrible? well, a new study says that there are mega-commuters in this hot spot. basically, drivers are spending more than 90 minutes in their car one way. even more surprising in the study is that it says there are more mega-commuters in silicon valley than in los angeles. >> it's very bad especially down the 101 corridor, 87, two two. there's no respite. everywhere you go, there's traffic. 280. >> reporter: all right. according to the study, among the silicon valley drivers here, more than 5% are mega- commuters. and that's one whole percentage
5:38 am
point more than los angeles. so what is the problem? according to the study, they say it's because of affordable housing. more people are living outside of silicon valley and commuting in so they can find affordable housing outside our region. live in sunnyvale, maria medina, kpix 5. >> where are these people driving from? did the study say? >> reporter: yeah. the study said san francisco obviously and alameda county and san joaquin county. >> thank you. residents in bodega bay are fed up with an abandoned fishing boat but officials say it's too expensive to move. neighbors say it wreaks of fuel. the vessel washed ashore back in september. its owner was running from the law and dumped it. it's been on the beach ever since. >> stuff like that doesn't usually happen here. everyone that came in would be like oh, have you seen the boat, heard about it? do you know the story? >> for now, it's going to stay put unless someone pays for it. samsung is now the target of a class action lawsuit over its exploding cell phones.
5:39 am
the problem has already prompted the company to recall its galaxy note 7 phones. the lawsuit contends the problem goes beyond that model and includes the s6, s7 and note 5. >> at one point my colleague put down the phone and said it's too hot to hold against my head and i put it down, plugged it in and that's when it caught fire on the desk. he knocked it off of the home desk and then it landed on the rug and caused a fire on the rug. >> the lawsuit filed by a firm in folsom seeks reimbursement and recall. samsung released a statement saying it doesn't comment on pending litigation. but it says the issues with the galaxy note 7 are isolated to only that model. sitting down to craft a comprehensive financial plan can be so intimidating that many of us stop right at the start. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here to help us get it done in a matter of minutes. so jill, the clock is starting. so how do we begin?
5:40 am
>> reporter: ask yourself three questions. number one, what is my biggest financial concern? now, this could be paying down your student loans or saving for a rental security deposit, maybe a car. or a longer term goal like saving money for a house and putting money away for your kids' education or contributing to your retirement. next, you have a two-part question. how much money do i have saved? and do i have any debt? this is where you're building your balance sheet that details what you own, your assets and what you oh, liabilities. very helpful if one of your objectives is to pay off your debt. list all the interest rates associated with those obligations and maturity dates. >> so once you have that figured out, what's next? >> do you track where your money is going? if yes, scour that cash flow and determine how much money you can allocate towards your goal and then automate that goal. right? just put that money away. if you don't track your money,
5:41 am
hey, just download an app, mint. you need a budget, digital, even your bank's tracking software. you have to figure out where you stand. finally, do you contribute to your retirement plan at work or your own ira or roth? this plan should help you start tackling the three pillars of planning success. paying down your consumer and then student loan debt, establishing that emergency reserve fund, and ultimately hopefully maximizing your retirement contributions. spend 3 minutes now and guess what, you don't have to think about the election. so that's good. and you won't need to do this in two months when you're starting to do financial resolution. >> baby steps is a good start. all right, jill schlesinger from new york city, jill, thank you so much. it is 5:41. the tension between cops and residents is at an all-time high across the nation. the unique way this cop is connecting with his community, next. ,,
5:42 am
they prey on our children, spending billions. addicting 17,000 california kids each year. eventually killing one-third of them. now tobacco companies are spending millions to... defeat prop 56. because in every state that's raised tobacco taxes, smoking rates go down. so who are you going to trust? pediatricians, cancer groups and the califronia pta who all... support prop 56. or the tobacco companies trying to kill it.
