but erases anytime table. the president says it's time to shift the focus from creating democracy to killing terrorists. katie nielsen has the story. >> terrorists, take heed: america will never let up until you are dealt a lasting defeat. >> reporter: president trump said the middle east policies of past presidents didn't work and it's time for a change. >> we will not talk about numbers of troops or our plans for further military activities. >> reporter: his focus will be on stopping terrorists and abandoning the idea of nation building in the middle east. he says pakistan is turning a blind eye to terrorists' hideouts and it's time to hold the country's feet to the fire however necessary. >> pakistan often gives safe haven to terrorists. >> reporter: we watched the president's address with a retired marine corps colonel to
get his reaction to the president's plan to win the war in afghanistan. >> i think we're on the right track towards focusing on the people that want to hurt us and by going after them, it precludes them getting us. >> reporter: another fassett of the president's plan, give military leaders on the front lines more authority to do what's necessary to get the job done, something the colonel said would be a welcome change. >> the standard thing among our group between military professionals was that you couldn't get decisions in a timely manner that had relevance to what you were trying to do. >> reporter: he says the president didn't come up with this strategy alone. it was obvious he had help from the secretary of defense and state as well as the joint chiefs of staff. >> this has jim mattis and joe dunford and tillerson, has their fingerprints all over it. >> reporter: katie nielsen,
kpix 5. >> house minority leader nancy pelosi said, when president trump says there will be no ceiling on the number of troops and no timeline for withdrawal, he is declaring an open-ended commitment of american lives with no accountability to the american people. and barbara lee said: member of congress to vote against the bill giving the president broad powers to use litary in the >> lee was the only member of congress to vote against the bill giving the president broad powers to use the military in the wake of the september 11th terror attack fearing it would lead to an unended conflict. today president trump heads to phoenix for a rally. the city's police chief and mayor said that they intend to protect everyone's first amendment rights but they are also urging people remain peaceful. earlier the mayor asked the president to scrap the visit. some anti-trump graffiti has already appeared in phoenix. the total eclipse came and
went. it was the first time in nearly 100 years this type of eclipse hit the u.s. millions of people watched it. for people in the path of totality, which spanned from oregon to south carolina, sunshine turned to darkness. that was one of the coolest things to watch. kpix 5's ken bastida reports from salem, oregon. >> reporter: no adjustment of your tv is necessary because this really is what it looked like at 10:15 in the morning. >> it was neat. when it was almost at full totality and you got that diamond ring effect of the moon and the sun, that was really awesome looking. and then to have it almost go total darkness and looking out at a baseball field that was really bright lights it started and then just going enh total dark, pretty amazing experience. >> reporter: thousands of people came to kaiser, oregon,
to watch a baseball game and an eclipse broke out. mother nature knocked this one out of the [ applause and cheers ] >> that was like the most incredible thing i have ever seen. when it reached totality and there was a ring around the moon, oh, man, it was incredible. >> oh, my gosh! [ inaudible ] >> the people around me, the spirit, the buzz that just took over, i was crying watching this. i was overwhelmed. >> pretty amazing. i cried like a baby. >> reporter: you cried? >> i cried. it was a little bit unexpected. i -- it was so moving. i don't know. i just -- tears started streaming. it was really amazing. >> reporter: and during totality, temperatures cooled off. in fact, they dropped about 15
degrees. and it got so dark, we could actually see planets, venus and mercury, in the sky. in salem, oregon, i'm ken bastida, kpix 5. back in the bay area, you can see clouds were thick when the moon first started passing over the sun. but they burned off just in time for hundreds of people at this san jose watch party to watch it. the san jose astronomical association hosted the event and an astronomer who mounted a telescope captured one of the best images of all. >> think about the universe that we live in and the things that are out there. you know, when you look up in the sky, there's a lot of amazing things to see and to learn about. >> some drivers in the bay area couldn't help but pull over just to soak up the partial eclipse. the chp wasn't pleased though telling anybody snapping pictures from highway 24 to keep moving. there no reports of accidents. at least we were "lucky" here
in san francisco to see a partial eclipse. >> we went on the roof. you had to wait for the clouds to pass. and then get that little break. >> that little break of opportunity. so i left san francisco at 8:30 and it took me all the way to bay point before the clouds cleared and then from antioch all the way to oakley it was clear blue skies. the most awesome thing i experienced with this eclipse was the temperature drop. it was 66 and it dropped easily to -- well, my phone said 58 degrees and the winds picked up. and it was cold. it felt like cool san francisco day. then as soon as it was over we jumped up to 75 degrees. >> that's amazing. >> imagine if you are in the path of totality, the temperature drop there. >> it didn't get dark. >> no. >> not for us. >> just felt like we were in the shade for a moment there. >> yes. >> but the people were so happy. i met this one woman who had her 9-year-old and she was -- she said when she saw her first eclipse she was 9. then she had her 90-year-old mother with
her. it was just generations out there. what a day. >> that's neat. >> and the weather was conducive for us here. today this morning waking up again in clouds. from the coast to our inland areas socked in with overcast conditions, sfo, we'll keep you posted on the potential of airport delays. right now temperatures from 58 in santa rosa to 63 in redwood city. winds have been picking up not so much at the coast, half moon bay, out of the northwest at 4. oakland winds are now at 10. it's calm in fremont. it's pretty much out of the west-southwest as far as the wind is concerned at 15 in the fairfield area. satellite-radar suggests an expansive extensive deck of stratus along the coast into the bay this morning stream all the way into morgan hill and as far north as santa rosa. clouds burn off, sunshine prevails. temperatures from 65 in pacifica to 87 degrees in fairfield. hotter at the delta. for the full forecast in a matter of minutes, let's say hi to sandra. good morning.
we are starting off tuesday with a few minors things out there. right now we're taking a look at a crash that happened earlier in fremont. this was on southbound 680 at vargas road but the good news with this we just watched the sensors go from yellow back to green so things are looking clear to the shoulder and back up to speed in fremont. here's the south bay a few spots you can see 880 we have some very minor slowdowns as we start off our day no crashes or no major crashes to report there. but right now, if you are on 101 going northbound from hellyer to san antonio avenue you are in the clear. that will take you about 22 minutes. and right now, live view of the san mateo bridge, once again, in the green, as we start off our day. police are investigating a hate crime in alameda. as kpix 5's christin ayers shows us, the latest case involves swastikas. >> reporter: a small group of people who live in the area have gathered in front of the
islamic center are standing up against hate. >> there is no home for hate in alameda. >> reporter: her husband found two of the flyers on the street in front of their home sunday morning. just a few doors down from the islamic center of alameda. on it a muslim woman is seen in a hijab, next to a swastika and the words, help me kill you, stupid. >> shocking, surprising. there was a swastika on it right, which is an incredibly obvious symbol. >> reporter: the flyer has sent shock waves through this community just days after the windows of a synagogue were smashed by vandals with rocks. authorities are still investigating whether that was a hate crime. this is not the first time the islamic center has been targeted. a year and a half ago someone broke the windows of a prayer room. >> we told the police to investigate it as a hate crime. >> reporter: he wasn't ready to talk about the latest incident but his neighbors were willing to stand up and speak out. >> it doesn't belong in this -- on our street, in this
community, on this planet. >> reporter: in alameda, christin ayers, kpix 5. in san francisco, a right- wing protest at crissy field is expected to happen. the national park service has not denied the permit but city leaders say they are going to work with the park service to prevent clashes like what happened during a recent "patriot prayer" rally in seattle. the city is going to hold alternative rallies at civic center on friday and saturday and take precautions at crissy field. >> police chief scott is meeting at least twice a day now, um, and they seem again very dependent upon our, um, police forces to have to be the security for the entire event. >> you could impose some stringent conditions such as, um, no backpacks, no weapons, not just firearms but no baseball bats, no clubs. no knives. >> mayor lee wants to use some of the lessons learned over the weekend in boston. he says there was a heavy police presence as well as fences to keep free speech advocates and counter- demonstrators apart.
after a powerful earthquake in italy. it hit an island.. off the coast of naples last night. according to the b-b-c: search-and-rescue crews are digging through the rubble after a powerful earthquake in italy on an island off the coast of naples, 2 dead, dozens hurt. many got trapped under collapsed buildings. the initial reports show it was a 4.3 earthquake. some students at san jose state are voicing their opposition to a professor's return to campus. lewis aptekar was returned to campus after harassing a student in 2015. some students said he had a reputation for acting inappropriately even before the allegations. now he is returning to teach
two classes starting next week. a protest is planned for monday. in fremont, an iguana has been forgotten or at least left behind at an apartment complex. an animal services officer found this blue reptile right outside a building on warren and warm springs yesterday. the iguana is currently at the tri-city animal shelter. among the mist surrounding the recent eclipse, we heard fish might bite during the event among the other myths. wilson walker reports from the delta. >> we're going to be fishing for striper and salmon. >> about 30 minutes ago. >> no luck? >> no luck so far. >> reporter: not just a day for watching the lines. this was a day for watching the skies and hoping the two would, well, align. >> we got a lot of fish on the fish finder. they're just not biting yet. >> reporter: finally, it started. >> isn't that amazing? >> oh, yeah. >> total. eclipse is starting but fish
still aren't biting. >> reporter: over the course of an hour, the landscape dimmed, the air cooled, and nature at large seemed to respond. >> hear the birds? they say the birds will get affected by it. >> reporter: the fish, however, not so much making the eclipse itself probably the day's better catch. >> awesome. >> we gave it a real good shot today. >> it's pretty slow. >> that's fishing. >> but that's fishing. >> reporter: next eclipse? >> next eclipse, who knows? [ laughter ] >> reporter: in the delta, wilson walker, kpix 5. for anyone who felt content watching the eclipse from the ground, get ready to feel slightly jealous. i do. dozens of people went to an invitation-only flight on alaska airlines. they caught it from above the clouds 15 minutes before the mainland. two minutes of totality for passengers over the pacific. that is cool. >> i love all these different perspectives. you look at the video from
google and you see these pictures from the plane and you got all these different perspectives from the country. >> what the astronauts saw. that was cool, too. >> what a day yesterday. hope you had a wonderful monday. how about a terrific tuesday? right now, over cast skies, we have thick overcast skies and also at sfo and currently our air temperatures are very similar to yesterday. maybe a degree or two off. 58 degrees in santa rosa. 59 degrees in livermore. and each and every one of these cities reporting overcast skies. we have our satellite-radar suggesting at this particular time we have the cloud cover deck roughly 2,000 feet deep. it's expansive and stretches all the way into the tri-valley to the east. all the way to morgan hill to
