7:00 am
girl's room. in two minutes we'll bring back alex savidge in what
7:01 am
drivers can no longer dro on market. the find you could be -- the fine you could be facing if you break the new law. it's tuesday, august 11th. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> good morning. >> less talk about weather and traffic. everything is cool. >> it will be cool ill. my goodness, that jerusalem fire doubled in size. we have up to 12,000 acres. good news. there will be more cloud cover. some breaks in the clouds. but the system well to the west but it's close enough that its en-- that it's enhanced the fog bank. there will be a breeze with sunshine. there's the low. if we could just get it over here but it's close enough that it's swinging in high and mid- level clouds. jerusalem fire, not the rocky, doubled in size. 12,000 acres overnight. that's incredible. 19 square miles. 7 miles northeast in middletown. i think we have good news. there are high clouds. this is from cloe way waiting
7:02 am
for sunrise, clouds will help today along with cooler temperatures. you can see some of the cloud cover there. it's just kind of on the edge favoring more mendocino county and lake county. we will see conditions that are better. westerly breeze. higher humidity and cooler conditions. keel focus on that for today and then see if we can arrange that for tomorrow. the low is not going anywhere until probably wednesday night or thursday. ahead of that low clouds and high clouds. we'll go with a mix of sun and clouds and drizzle. 70s and 80s through the interior. 60s and 70sen on the coast -- 70s on the coast. sal, want to start in fremont. i can start where you maent me to. but i think i will start at the toll plaza. everybody wants to see that. that's what everybody wants to hear it. westbound bay bridge backed up tonight maze.
7:03 am
this is a typical commute. you will see slowing onto the bridge. 880 and steve and i have been talking about it a lot. 880 has been okay in oakland. down the road, we had an earlier accident southbound 880 in fremont. it's gone. but it was there long enough that traffic is really slow right from 238. it stays that way all the way down to stevenson. today it's slower than it normally is. today, it is slower than it normally is. nearby on 580 is slow son the pass. it's moderate into dublin and then 680 southbound getting out of pleasanton is going to be slow as you head counsel toward the sun -- down to the sunol grade. a major change for drivers who use market street today. starting today, private cars won't be able to turn onto one stretch of the busy road. alex savidge is live on market street. people might take a while to get used to this. >> reporter: yeah. i think there could be a bit of
7:04 am
a learning curve. we'll have to see how it plays out. there will be parking control officers from the city of san francisco. they will be posted along the stretch of market. take a look. the signs are very clear. this is one of them right here. it says it. in black and white. literally. no turns onto market and there are some exceptions, trucks, buses taxies and bicycles but in essence here no one in a private car can make a turn onto market between third street and eighth street starting today. transportation officials say the goal here is safety. they point to a high number of accidents along this portion of market. many involving pedestrians and bicyclists. transportation officials say one way to reduce the number of crashes is to reduce traffic volumes on market which is why private cars are being pushed off the busy thoroughfare. some drivers we saw believe this plan may backfire.
7:05 am
>> cause a lot of traffic. definitely gonna cause a lot of traffic. it won't free up anything. it will make it worse. trust me. about 11:00, 12:00, lunchtime, making it a lot difficult for people to get back to work on time especially if they have to travel. >> reporter: it still, the hope from transportation officials is that less congestion along this stretch of market will speed up muni bus routes and will be good news for taxi drivers who will be allowed to make those turns onto market street. these restrictions are all part of san francisco's vision zero plan. this is an effort that is underway to hopefully eliminate traffic deaths here in the city over the coming decade. but again, we will bring you back out here live. this is third street at market and starting today, no turns allowed onto market street if you are in a private car. the warning is out. gasia, we do know that tickets will be issued. we'll have to see if drivers
7:06 am
are given a break today. if there's that grace period at all as drivers learn the new rules. we'll see how it shakes out today. >> we're talking about tickets upwards of $200, right? >> reporter: the fines potentially could vary. it could be that much. absolutely. >> okay. all right. alex savidge, we have been warned. thank you. there is a warning going out in alameda where a teenager was sexually assaulted by a prowler who is still on the loose. allie rasmus is live in alameda. have a look at a person of interest in this case as well as other crimes that may be connected. >> reporter: that's right. alameda police have put out a photo of a person of interest in this case. a man they want to talk to in connection with the break-ins. there have been six break-ins since june. police believe the same man may be responsible. the concern is he may be escalating and upping the ante
7:07 am
every time one happens. the most recent was on sunday. a man cut through a window screen and entered a girl's bedroom window and sexually assaulted her. again, police say the man in this picture is a person of interest in these cases. they want to talk to him. this was taken from a hotel. the first one happened in june. he's described as being in his late teens or early 20s with a dark complex and in talking with alameda residents many said they and their neighbors are aware of this string of break-ins. some got a text alert from police warning residents in the area to keep their doors and windows locked overnight. others say it's been a general topic of discussion online, on their e-mail groups and amongst neighbors. >> this town is like mayberry. you don't see this kind of stuff usually happening and i think this -- the neighborhood
7:08 am
here, everybody is tight-knit. they can't say it won't happen. but i think people are much more aware. >> very troubling. what may happen, he will break into somebody's house and somebody is gonna -- might get injured or killed or he himself may break into the wrong house and the homeowner may be armed. >> reporter: now, here is another look of that photo of the person of interest in these crimes. police say so far all of the bay bridges have happened on the west end of alameda. but they are urging residents all across the island to take extra precautions, keep their doors and windows locked overnight. again, anyone who recognizes the man in the photo is asked to give alameda police a call. >> residents are being told to be on alert. what are police doing to try to catch the man? >> reporter: well, police say along with that person of interest, the photo, they have other persons of interest, other leads they are looking into. they have undercover police working this case and they have increased patrols on the west
7:09 am
end of the island. so the goal here and the hope is to catch this guy before he triks again. >> -- strikes again. >> thank you. the san mateo county sheriff's department is warning people there to be on alert after a man sexually assaulted a woman in her own home. this happened sunday night in san carlos at 10:30 on chestnut street. police say a man knocked on the woman's door. she let him in. the man slawpted the woman an -- sexually assaulted the woman and she escaped. today, the san jose city council will consider a six-mon ban on closing down -- six- month ban on closing down mobile home parks. as the value of land goes up, so does the number of park owners who want to sell their property to developers. the proposed moratorium would give the city some time to review an existing ordinance that outlines the process of closing down a mobile home park. the decision comes a week after the announced closure of the win chester -- winchester
7:10 am
community which could cause people to move. >> the plan is to have it closed in two years. and that caused more fear, more panic because, of course, we're not ready to move in two years and had never planned to move. >> san jose city officials are due to talk about ideas about how to help people who are displaced, ideas include increasing the relocation compensation and requiring city council approval for any park conversion. a state of emergency has been issued in ferguson, missouri after another chaotic night that included protests and more arrests. some 100 people were arrested in and around ferguson. more than 20 were taken into custody as a large crowd blocked traffic on the highway. the latest protests come more than 24 hours after a demonstration was interrupted by gunfire and the police shooting that left an 18-year-
7:11 am
old critically injured. >> police been abusing their power for years. years. we want more -- we want steeper consequences for police when they violate and do things wrong. >> police say that 18-year-old shot by officers yesterday fired at police first. he's now facing several charges. our time now is 7:10. it appears aldon smith may have his pick of new jobs despite his latest arrest. the 25-year-old faces possible charges of dui, hit and run and vandalism after being arrested last week in santa clara. it was his fifth arrest in four years and in response, the 49ers released hill. now there are reports the -- released him. now there are reports the new york giants are among 14 teams that may be interested in him. the key may be whether toxicology reports show he had been drinking before he reportedly hit a parked car in the lot at his apartment
7:12 am
complex. smith is denying being under the influence. 7:11. we're finding out more about the trouble from san francisco'slands festival. coming up, the reported kidnapping under investigation just outside of the big event. >> and that second big wildfire in lake county, it is still burning out of control this morning. up next, why a man who was trying to protect his property from the fire ended up being arrested. good morning. we're looking at the bridge commute. right now, the san mateo bridge is a little bit busy as you go away from hayward and head to the peninsula. we'll tell you more about that coming up. a nice low coming down the coast. actually parallel to it. but it's ushering in a cooler a-- a cooler pattern. we'll talk about how much cooler.
7:13 am

7:16 am
all up and down the state our investigators have been very diligent in tracking down investigating these individuals and arresting them. >> silva will be charged with arson, calfire says it's against the law for nonfirefighters to start backfires even to protect their homes because with conditions so dry, these fires could easily get out of control. calfire says the rocky fire, it could be fully contained by thursday. right now, it's 88% contained. the fire has burned more than 69,000 acres. 43 homes have been destroyed. 7:16 now. we're learning new details about a grewsome homicide case earlier this year in san francisco. back in january, a suitcase was found containing body parts outside of a goodwill store. the remains blocked to omar shawan. an autopsy lists the cause of death as homicidal violence. it also said traces of cocaine,

heroin and methadone were detected. his roommate was arrested in the killing. but he was released due to a lack of evidence. then he was found dead days later of a drug overdose. ross mirkarimi's drns has been suspended for past six months but he said he didn't know. the dmv said he was notified in january because he didn't report being in an accident in october. under california law, drivers have to file a report if someone is hurt or if the damage is $750 or more. in this case, the other car involved in the accident was damaged. he's restricted for driving to and from work until he files a damage report and files other information. he said his insurance company told him everything was in order. he's running for re-election. henne se's campaign said --
7:18 am
henne say's campaign said apparently there's a des yepency -- discrepancy about how he follows the law. all kind of selects and everyday people were dumping ice water on their heads and raising money to fight als last year. a johns hopkins researchers said $100 million raised helped scientists pinpoint a defective protein in brain cells of patients of als. those experiments could lead to treatments for als, they say. 7:18. let's see if you need to hit the road now. >> i don't think you need to run out of the house right now.
7:19 am
this is a look at the commute on 58 westbound. it will be slow. we have an accident that's cleared on 880. it was there maybe 45 minutes ago on 880 near decoto. that's gone. you should get out of the house earlier in that's your -- if that's your commute. 580 as you drive let's say from castro valley into oakland if you are using the macarthur freeway, that should be pretty good. if you are driving over the peninsula, 101 and 280 are off to a pretty decent start. it's going to be just kind of a normal commute. not everywhere is doom and gloom when it comes to the roads. let's take a look at live pictures. 880 is beginning to slow a little bit northbound as you approach 66th and get up to high street. when you get to the bay bridge toll plaza, about 15, 20 minutes before you make it on the span. hello, steve.
7:20 am
>> hello, sal. i saw you briefly in the newsroom. >> i know. we do have an interesting pattern. we couldn't get a low to visit us in january. nothing but high pressure and record highs and no rain whatsoever. well, there is a low going down the coast here in august. everything is topsy-turvy. i don't know. a hint of fall in the air. there's the low. i will give you a better picture. it's enhanced the fog bank, drizzle. .05 up in fort bragg. .01 in san francisco. first mesh purable of august so far. we get our first rain of august. it's not much but it clicked the rain game. higher clouds favoring mendocino county more than lake county. that will help the firefighters. the conditions will be cooler. westerly breeze. northwest, west. that's good. west, what about kelseyville? west-northwest. humidity is up. temperatures are down. these are all positives.
7:21 am
the wind creates its own issues. the fire has its own weather issues. at least we're getting a little bit of cloud cover and cooler temperatures. there's the low. for this time of year, it's impressive. it's a little bit too ar-- too far away. we get some drizzle. we have another hurricane. guillermo well afarther -- well apart. hilda is stronger and moving in a different path. 90 miles per hour northwest 5. it's expected to weaken rapidly. that's the good news. turn tropical as it heads toward the big island by wednesday down to 45 and then 40 but goes south of the islands. it's feeding on 82-degree water. for us, the system will spin in a few high clouds. partly cloudy to mostly cloudies. mostly sunny to the south. but there is a breeze and a cooler air mass in place. with the low clouds and higher clouds. it gives us a partly cloudy to mostly cloudy forecast here. some sun as we mentioned. it's the message of a cooling
7:22 am
trend. takes us into wednesday and then we'll start to warm it up toward friday and saturday. morning low clouds. high clouds. windy for some. 70s, low 80s for a few. 60s, 70s, coast and bay. these temperatures you might expect below average. we'll continue the team into tomorrow. it looks like the low moves out by thursday. that will allow high pressure to build in for a warmup as we head toward friday and saturday. saturday looks to be the warmest day of the weekend. >> thank you. 7:22. a tv news anchor in florida said he had enough. coming up in 20 minutes, we'll tell you the story that made the anchorman just walk off the set on live tv. a bitter traffic stop of sorts. the security issue that prompted a los angeles sheriff's helicopter to chase down that paraglider.

7:31 am
seriously. couldn't buy one during the winter months. the system will -- now that the higher clouds are thin. it has enhanced some of the lower cloud deck. it will be cooler across the board here. there's more of a pronounced westerly breeze for many, especially out to the delta, higher clouds and low cloud. looks like the lower clouds will get chewed up. mix of sun and clouds. windy for some. 70s, 80s through the interior. 60s, 70s coast and bay. multiple things this morning. what do you want to start with? we'll start with the approach to the bay bridge, steve, and the east bay at the macarthur maze. ulcan see traffic here -- you can see traffic here doesn't look too bad as you come around the corner. but when you get to the toll plaza, you will be waiting for 15, 20 minutes there before you make it onto the span. you can see traffic is going to be moderately heavy. i want to take a look at marin county now. southbound 101 from 37 down to central san rafael. son stop-and-go traffic -- stop-
7:32 am
and-go traffic. it's a new commute with a lot of cars on it. a lot of slow traffic. 80 westbound from richmond to hercules is not all that bad. but a lot of people complain about that richmond bridge, saying it's become a lot busier. we agree. the analysts say it's because more people have jobs, which is good, yes. let's take a look at -- in fact, at 7:31, back to the desk. people are still mourning for 8-year-old maddy middleton, the little girl killed in santa cruz last month. now, while plans are going on for her public memorial, there's new information coming out about whether her accused killer is connected to a school shooting threat. ktvu fox 2's brian flores, you are following all of this from the newsroom. what do we know so far? >> well, we reported on the threat last year. it was very taken very seriously. so much so it closed classes for the day. this morning, though, we're hearing that investigators are looking into whether maddy middleton's accused killer was also responsible for that
7:33 am
threat. now, 15-year-old adrian gonzalez is accused of killing maddy middleton. according to the paper, when bons was arrested he reportedly wrote on his instagram account about having crippling anxiety. now, according to the paper, the reporter received hundreds of threats. the pesh wrote he was wracked -- person wrote he was wracked about that threat and had crippling anxiety. also at the time he used a series of fake names, e-mails and twitter handles. police say they are aware of these similarities but right now they are focused on finishing their investigation into madison's death. gonzalez is scheduled to appear in court on september 21st. in the meantime, a public memorial for madison is
7:34 am

7:35 am
or an active shooter situation. surveillance is not allowed and the camera is prohibited from recording. there cannot be acoustical devices on the drone and it won't be allowed to fly at night. >> the rules sound fairly reasonable. i think those are situations where there's a need for the police to have an eye in the sky that's safe. i just think my where -- anyone can look into it, anyone can look into my windows. the fact that someone does it from a grope. i don't know -- from a drone. i don't know if someone could be un-- could be stalking. the police, i don't know. there will be people there. >> reporter: the drone will not be armed with weapons and projectiles and will not have a license plate reader on it. the city council will take up the issue this afternoon.
7:36 am
the council will likely sign off on the rules but they need approval from the faa before the one-year pilot program gets underway. >> thank you. many air traffic controllers suffer from chronic fatigue potentially putting airline travelers at risk. one in five controllers said they've been involved in serious errors in the last year, most of which was blamed on fatigue. three quarters led to schedules that contributed to ongoing fatigue. now you, the faa says it has -- now, the faa says it's changed schedules since the report was done and says croppic fatigue is less of a problem -- croppic fatigue is less of a problem now. the governor of colorado will tour boort of the animas -- part of the animas river. the environmental protection agency triggered the trill.

7:39 am
patients. they would also have to limit their grows to one room indoors or up to 12 outdoor plants that are hidden from view. supporters say this would cut down on criminal activity and also limit the risk of fire. san francisco police say a man was trying to sell a wrist band for the outside lands festival, he was kidnapped at gunpoint. the man arranged to meet the buyer saturday afternoon after posting an ad on craigslist. three men showed up and pulled out a gun and knife on the seller, then forced him to get into their car. they took the wrist band and dropped the man off. the man was cut on his hand. at this point, no arrests have been made. the great recession claimed thousands of jobs, but jobs are coming back. especially for two industries. they can't get enough people to apply for the jobs that are open. coming up in the next hour of "mornings on 2," the two industries you should consider in your job search. the presidential campaign is in full gear. the key endorsement bernie
