because the civil rights organization shares the building with several other businesses. drinking alcohol kills six americans every day or more than 2,000 every year. according to a new report by the centers for disease control, binge drinking, that causes most alcohol-related deaths. it may surprise you mostcations don't involve -- most cases don't involve college-aged adults. it's middle-aged men most at risk, those between the ages of 35 and 64. >> the experts say a binge is defined at five drinks for a man, four for a women within two hours. it can affect the heart rate and body pressure as well as cause severe dehydration, even alcohol poisoning. 7:27. what's next for jean quan? we have a we have a couple of

30s. 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s. very warm air aloft has settled in. that's going to translate to a warm, sunny day. petaluma is in there. windsor, sewasty toll, lakeport, angwin 60 degrees. 33 for alamo. antioch, brentwood, pittsburgh, but la fayette at 40. but the breeze again, some areas about 10, 15. generally it's an easterly breeze which means goodbye to cloud cover. and temperatures on the coast very nice. sunny and warm. windy for a few. near 70 if you can head to santa cruz. yesterday, 77 -- 78 today. we are -- sal, are you checking something there? >> i got caught. i will put the phone down. >> here he is with an update on the traffic, mr. sal castanedo. >> thank you. we're looking at the eastshore freeway. i did get off the phone with some of the transit answers.
we still don't have any major delays. there's still no major delays reported on muni, b.a.r.t. or caltrain. this is a look at the carquinez bridge from the carquinez bridge to the macarthur maze. 28-minute drive. when you get to the bay bridge toll plaza, you will see another 20-minute delay getting into san francisco. very typical. there haven't been any major crashes along the way. looking at the nimitz freeway, we have a lot of slow traffic here on 880 south. not that bad, though. once you get to fremont, it breaks up a little bit. there's a little bit of slow traffic as you can see on the san mateo bridge heading over to the peninsula. if you want to use 2680 instead of 101 today as you get to the peninsula, that's in slightly better shape heading south. back to the desk. >> all right. thank you. more than four months after that earthquake in napa, hundreds of people are still fighting to get back their belongings out of a badly damaged storage unit. since the quake in august,
access to one of the buildings at the napa self-storage on walnut creek has been prohibited. alex savidge is live to tell us more on what the tenants are being asked to do to get their own property back. >> reporter: good morning. yes, the people using this storage facility are in quite a jam, you could say. their items are essentially trapped inside the place. the building -- one of the buildings here was red tagged after the 6.0 earthquake here in name back in august and now people who rent those units, well, they are being asked to foot the bill to recover their own belongings. according to the register, the owner of self-storage say it will cost around $200,000 to safely shore up the building and remove what's inside. each tenant is being asked to pay the equivalent of a year's rent. that's as much as $2200. and the owners say if not enough tenants decide to contribute, that would be 70%
of them, then the building would be defollowished with all of the content -- demolished with all of the contents inside. many are frustrated and angry over what's going on. many people say this amounts to extortion. one tenant told the napa valley registrar, it's not our responsibility to make her building safe, referring to the owner. we should not have to buy our own things out of there. on top of that, there's no guarantee that the possessions will be salvageable once they are brought out. city leaders are stepping in to try to work out a plan. the city council has a final say on whether a demolition happens here. some council members believe that's a bad idea. they will hold a meeting next week that will involve city leaders here, the tenants and the owners of the storage facility to try to work out a plan. we're finding out more
about the man shot and killed by san francisco police officers sunday night. last night police chief greg suhr said it appears mathew hoffman wanted police to shoot hill and had been about planning the deadly confrontation for months. he confronted two officers in a parking lot and refused to leave. he showed the officers what looked to be a handgun, pulled it out and pointed it at them. the officers fired their weapons, hitting hoffman three times. now at last night's meeting, chief suhr showed a picture of hoffman's weapon. it turned out to be a pellet gun. >> i'm sure second guessing, did they miss an opportunity, should they have seen something they didn't see, and they navigated a situation after finding out it's not a real gun. >> now, hoffman's gun revealed
three suicide notes, including one to the officers who shot him saying they did nothing wrong. the officers a -- the suspect approached officers on three locations asking about their weapons and ammunition. police say hoffman recently moved to the bay area from connecticut. he was upset about his life including a breakup with his girlfriend. police officers in maryland are on high alert after a man walked into one of their police station with as with a loaded gun. they say the man walked in, he smelled like marijuana. they found a bullet in the chamber. they also found cocaine and marijuana. he said he was ordered by a gang to bring the gun into the police station and check out the security.

the valley transit authority said a toll lane would feed up the commute around san jose. highway 85 currently has three lanes in both directions. but city councilman supports the idea of adding a fourth lane along the stretch that runs between 87 and 280 and making it a toll lane. another idea, not adding a fourth lane and instead converting the current carpool lane to a toll lane. while some drivers supported it, others were weary. >> my concern is road construction. that's always a mess. more lanes is good. you know, having the option to pay for it if that's the only way they are gonna do it, i think it would be worth it. >> reporter: he says converting one lane to a toll wouldn't provide much congestion relief. he's aurging the vta -- urging the vta to convert a fourth lane in the project. plans are being considered for highway 101. right now, the funding for the
project is pending. tori? >> all right. thank you, janine. live for us in los gatos. a marijuana bust in an upscale neighborhood in san ramon. coming up in 20 minutes, the other troubling discovery made inside the home that prompted a bigger police response. it's the place to be if are into the latest technology at the consumer electronics show happening right now in las vegas. we're looking at more slow traffic and breaking news coming in that may effect your drive in the east bay. as we look at this picture of 101, you see it's just moderate getting into the west valley. we'll run that down for you. we'll tell you about the news we just found out here about a situation in richmond. well, 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s, yes. those are some of the lows depending upon your elevation. but it will be a sunny and warm day. we'll show you how warm coming up.

stage. we can see now it was pretty charred up. we know that officers are challenged in determining who the victim was. that's because the car has paper plates and items were burned. if you live in the area and you need to head north, you can take westbound to 280 or callen boulevard. if you are headed south, take king to 280 -- king to 280. no that traffic is quite backed up in both directions. plan ahead this morning. we're live in pacifica, i'm tara moriarty, back to you. >> thank you, tara. it will be a while before that is open. want to repeat that in case you missed it. let's go to the bay bridge toll plaza, the traffic is going to be a little better than it was even just 15 minutes ago. it seems to be clearing out, especially original the left- hand side of the toll plaza or

demolished. customers are frustrated angry. some are calling it extortion. one said, it's not our responsibility to make her building safe, referring to the owner. we should not have to buy our own things out of there. on top of that, there's also no guarantee that people's possessions will even be salvageable once they are pulled out. now city leaders they are stepping in trying to resolve this dispute. they will have the final say on whether
