6:36 am
into the united states as it downgrades to a cat-2 and then turns into a low pressure system. but georgia, the carolinas, mississippi and tennessee could be impacted from this storm system. this gives you a sense of the widespread amount of rain associated with this. several inches 10 to 20 still expected from this hurricane. so even though it's been downgraded, it's serious. here's the wind gust expected between 80 to 155 miles per hour winds as it hits florida on saturday. and even the outer layers, this is still dangerous wind conditions. we do have obviously an active -- several active systems. katia still right in the gulf of mexico there. here's irma. there's jose. and jose in fact expected to hit the leeward islands they just got hit by irma, and then it's going to graze north of puerto rico as it heads further north into the atlantic. here's why irma is now making this direct path towards florida. we were hoping this jet stream would dip actually right as
6:37 am
irma was passing through. it didn't happen. it dipped too soon and now the way hurricanes move they find the path of least resistance so the path is wide open for it to impact florida now. right now, we are tracking a pretty smooth ride for drivers on highway 24 although it's foggy. this is a live look on the oakland side and we are seeing those taillights moving westbound. so so far traffic pretty easy along this stretch. we were tracking a problem we saw a carpooler on the shoulder there and we have reports of an accident on the eastbound side so this is on the other side of the tunnel and this is right on the shoulder not causing any delays. we are still looking at a pretty easy commute for drivers making their approach towards the tunnel in either direction but we are definitely seeing slowdowns build along southbound 680. and highway 4 crowded in the westbound direction headlights heading westbound this is right near the port chicago

reports. shears on 280 in san francisco reporter: the study shows that 23-mile stretch of road from san francisco to silicon valley on interstate 280 is the costliest in the state when it comes to dealing with road kill. in 2016, there were almost 400 collisions on interstate 280 involving animals costing $875,000 per mile in maintenance costs and clean- up. highway 101 north of san francisco is second with 225 collisions in 2016 at a cost of half a million dollars per mile. the animals that cause the most problems, deer, coyotes and other small wildlife like skunks, raccoons and possums. >> it's like oh, my god when you hit it because you think you hit something else but it was a deer. it damaged the right front fender and cost $5,000. >> reporter: the study authors say they didn't include data
6:40 am
from more rural county roads but if they did it would add another $300 million a year to that total cost. the study authors say one of the ways to prevent road kill accidents is by installing underpasses for animals to cross the freeways or fencing along the side of the freeways to keep the animals off the roads in the first place. they say those measures could pay for themselves within a couple of years. live in san francisco, katie nielsen, kpix 5. a training event for law enforcement gets under way this afternoon in dublin. the alameda county sheriff's department is behind the urban shield program. it includes earthquake and fire preparedness training. but it also has a weapons expo. >> whoo! >> it's the weapons that are prompting a protest today at the alameda county government center in oakland. organizers say they are also taking a stand against president trump's intent to lift restrictions to the
