7:00 am
we're talking commuter pet peeves. we'll tell you what caltrans is saying they will do about it. 7:00 on this friday morning good morning, i'm gasia mikaelian. >> good morning, i'm brian flores in for dave clark. the weather story for today is. >> and the the weekend. it will be awful. how can you avoid that? category five if there was a category six it's being
7:01 am
discussed, it would qualify. right front quadrant there about a 30-40-mile wide area. that moves on shore that will give a 25-30-foot waves, a couple feet of rain to some of the mountain areas. it will be total devastation. 200 miles an hour moving northwest. although it's looking like it's taking a jog off to the east. but tonight 205 miles an hour. once it moves over land it will take the energy out of it but not before causing some damage. fog around here some higher clouds. nice sunrise. we will have a mostly sunny, partly cloudy day. 40s and 50s on your is temps. 49 windsor. 49 sebastopol. closed for sonoma and mill valley. we are waiting for a system to
7:02 am
move in over the the weekend. if there is any rain it would be sunday morning. we'll have more of that coming up. 70s and low 80s through the interior. all right sal 7:02. how are things on friday? >> we do have a problem. it was so good for awhile. we have a crash reported on the bay bridge westbound getting into san francisco and i wanted to let you know traffic is already backing up over the toll plaza. take a good look at that. normally we see traffic moving a little bit even though it's slow and stop and go. this looks like it's absolutely stopped and we will take a live look at our bridge camera. you can see the traffic is stopped on that span getting up to treasure island. the good news it's a noninjury crash and they are moving it to the side but this could be one of the situations where it was there just long enough to mess
7:03 am
things up. they have issued a sig alert because anything on the bridge that takes up lanes will mess up traffic. let's take a look at highway 101. traffic is okay here approaching the 80 split. if you are driving in the south bay this has been a little lighter than usual with slowing on 280 and 80. 7:03 let's go back to the desk. the search goes on in the east bay for a man who police say stabbed three grocery store workers in pittsburgh. they say he was trying to steal some razors when the workers tried to stop him police say he stabbed them with a knife. the confrontation happened just before 8:30 last night. one worker was stabbed in the back and the other two had stab wounds to their forearms. all three were taken to a
7:04 am
hospital and should recover. the shoplifter got away before police arrived. police brought inning toes to search for him but he is still at large. firefighters were on the scene of an apartment fire along sunset avenue. it starred at 2:30 this morning. at this point no return of any injuries. we'll bring you updates right here on mornings on 2. it's a morning and afternoon battle most of us have to under take to drive to and from work. everyone as their pet peeve but caltrans held a meeting to talk all about it. >> reporter: no big surprise. the big issue they are mostly concerned about traffic and congestion. we spoke with a few people who
7:05 am
said its could get pretty bad along highway 101 and the problem only seems to be getting worse. >> i would say certain parts of the day you get a lot of traffic. and definitely over the past years i've noticed quite an increase in the amount of cars on the road. >> reporter: caltrans, the metropolitan transportation commission and other stakeholders talked about tackling the issue. one of the major issues is deferred maintenance. that issue came to a head with the collapse of the 23rd avenue bridge fence on to interstate 880 monday night. that caused a major multicar pileup. last night caltrans says it should have never happened. >> if you don't fill your potholes, then you have to do minor repairs. if you don't do minor repairs you have to do complete reconstruction. and each step of the way it gets more expensive. >> reporter: coming back to our live shot along the commute heading through marin county on
7:06 am
101 you can see it's moving along fairy smoothly. as for the big solution, caltrans says likely solution will probably be more money, drivers having to pay more. the big question is whether it will come in the form of higher taxes or user fees. >> christien kafton, thank you so much. the u.s. national hurricane center says the strongest hurricane ever recorded in the western hemisphere is heading toward mexico's pacific coastline. hurricane patricia is a category five. the highest level. forecasters call it a catastrophic hurricane. patricia is expected to make landfall this afternoon or tonight. and people in those resort towns are boarding up windows and some tourists are being evacuated. the hurricanes maximum sustained winds have increased at 200 miles an hour and most flights into and out of power toe via that has witness
7:07 am
canceled. this incident comes just one week after three people were wounded by gunfire at an off campus party right across the street from the college. the newly released emergency response report is out after a deadly shooting at sacramento city college. it says that the day roman gonzalez was killed in september it took the colleges system 36 minutes to send out a potentially life saving message. and the schools public information officer couldn't remember critical log on codes needed to send the campus alerts. staff should have quarterly drills on how to warn the
7:08 am
campus in case of another shooting or emergency. staff members will discuss the reports recommendations early next month. down south where san diego community college district, faculty, students, and staff are preparing for a shooting situation they hope will never happen with active shooter drills. participants learn defensive techniques. >> there are no rules. this person is trying to kill you so do whatever you can to survive. >> the district says this type of situation is a reality for schools across the country. they hope these drills will teach and prepare everyone if a situation like this does happen. there is new evidence this morning that shows high schoolers in the u.s. are just not very happy in the classroom. survey done in be collaboration with the born this way foundation which is the same organization founded by singer
7:09 am
lady gaga found students consistently have three key feelings when they are in school. at the top tired with 39% feeling this way during class. stressed came in second at 29% and bored was third at 26%. researchers warn the negative feelings can effect students attention, decision making, and over all school performance. a bay area family is grieving the loss of their son. a u.s. marine fighter pilot. >> we are still in shock and i've accepted the fact that he's not coming back. >> the last conversation they had with him before his jet crashed in england. >> do you remember the woman who gave birth on an air china flight. the reason she may be fined by the airline. >> good morning.
7:10 am

7:11 am
7:12 am
all of our legendary racing heritage. all of our pioneering four wheel drive experience. come together in one amazing new vehicle. this is the all-new gle coupe. a mercedes-benz suv with the heart and soul of a race car. authorities just increased the death toll from a crash from 42 to 43. the crash happened in the south western part of the country near bordeaux. the bus and truck had a head on collision on a narrow road and
7:13 am
both vehicles burst into flames. only eight people survived the crash and four have serious injuries. on an especially sad knee the increased death toll comes after a body of a child was stuck in the wreckage. the child had within traveling with -- the child had been traveling with a truck driver that had also been killed. a teacher and a 15-year-old student from somalia died after being stabbed by the attacker who was shot and killed by police. we are learning the teacher tried to over power the attacker and that is when he was stabbed. according to video evidence, the attacker picked people out by their skin color, choosing people with dark skin. authorities say the school is attended mostly by students with an immigrant background. the bay area family of a u.s. marine pilot says they are extremely proud but still in shock after their child's death. he graduated from castro valley
7:14 am
high school and the university of san francisco. he was killed wednesday when just after taking off from a base in england something went wrong with his fa18. he steered his jet away from a neighborhood about 70-miles from london. he ejected just before his jet crashed in a field but he did in the survive. he was on his way back to the u.s. after spending six months for fighting isis. he spoke with his son shortly before the crash and they made plans to meet in san diego. >> his last words were dad, see you in two days. and woman hours later he had an accident. every child is very special to their parents, but i think he was way beyond that. he was among the best. >> his family says he was adventurous and outgoing and could light up a room. he always reminded them that he chose to fly and loved what he
7:15 am
did. the pentagon is identifying the u.s. commando killed in a raid. 39-year-old master sergeant joshua wheeler of oklahoma. the first u.s. service member killed in combat in iraq since the u.s. began its campaign against the islamic group. about 30 prisoners were freed. officials say several militants were captured in the raid. time is 7:15. congressman paul ryan is officially running for house speaker. the wisconsin representative made the announcement yesterday after pressure from fellow republicans. he sent a letter to his colleagues last night saying quote here he wants to start with a clean slate and to rebuild what had been lost. he had some tough demands though. he wanted house rules changed to overhaul emotion that allows house members to try to oust a
7:16 am
speaker. and he wants to be able to spend time with his family and not be on the road attending fundraisers at much as previous speakers. >> all across the board members are quite excited about ryan. they are ready to mobilize behind him in the hopes he can unify everybody. >> ryan will run against florida congressman dan webster. republicans are expected to nominate a new speaker on wednesday with a vote by the full house the following day. if elected, ryan would be the youngest house speaker in history at 45 years old. j a woman from taiwan who gave birth on a los angeles bound flight may have to pay the airline. you probably remember this video. it was taken a few weeks ago on that air china flight where the woman gave birth. a doctor from ucla was the one that delivered the baby. after the birth the flight was diverted to alaska. the airline is looking into reports that the woman didn't disclose she was so close to giving birth in an attempt to
7:17 am
get her child u.s. citizenship and now the airline is considering charging the woman for the cost of that detour. >> wow. time is 7:17. let's check in with sal. it looks like there was problems on the bay bridge. >> we do have a crash that is being cleared. the only good news i have is that it wasn't a serious injury crash. however we have a lot of slow traffic on that span. it's getting better now. it's a little bit better. it will take awhile for the traffic to unwind. it was blocking two lanes for a bit. let's take a look at the toll plaza. you will see that even the car pool lanes you see to the right there, the car pool lanes are usually moving by rather quickly. this morning they are not. and they are moving the crash. in fact i'm going to check on the air live. they have canceled the sig alert all lanes are open. but it will take awhile for this to unwind.
7:18 am
northbound 101 as you drive past 280 traffic is moving along very nicely. 85 and 17 are okay so in the south bay we have some decent commute conditions today. 7:18 let's bring steve in here. steve, you were spot on with your forecast last night for levi stadium. after that. >> after that it all went down hill. but none of that was your fault. >> i'm sorry. thank you, sal. it was nice weather. just incredible with what is going on with hurricane patricia. this went from a day ago it was a category one 85 miles an hour. 4:00 a.m. yesterday it went to a category five over night. amazing. by the way this is the strongest ever on wind speed. the hurricane hunters measure the wind speed above the eye around 221 miles an hour. and a temperature of 89 degrees. above the eye. are you kidding me? this is the strongest ever on wind speed.
7:19 am
not on pressure. what is interesting is that hurricane linda had 185 miles an hour winds back in 1997. 97 was an el nino year. so strongest on wind speed, not for pressure. there have been typhoons that have had higher pressure. some of those typhoon are satellite estimates. any way you slice its for those it's 885 mill bars. there are some of you out there that hang your hat on barometric pressure. 25.99. unbelievable. there is 220 miles an hour winds. it's feeding off unbelievably warm water. it's moving by tonight 205 miles an hour. it will make landfall. again this is very mountainous area but at the same time the waters i just can't see how won't be devastating because you will get two feet of rain
7:20 am
in some areas. waves up to 25 feet. now once it moves inland it will start to weaken but then it will move into texas and the deep south. there is your water temps right there about 90 degrees. 88-90 degrees. we have another hurricane olaf moving away from the hawaiian islands. the key is the remains of olaf when they move into the relatively cooler water some of this moisture will interact with the jet stream and might bring us rain next wednesday. we hope. we need it. but so many things could happen. we do have some fog on the here and now. there is higher clouds. mostly sunny, partly cloudy day. 46 santa rosa. some 40s to the north. a lot of 50s here. 50 alamo. 50s to 60s out toward antioch and brently. there is cool lows. even though the higher clouds
7:21 am
are moving in and that is the theme. fog for some. pretty thick around morgan hill and san martin. partly sunny but hazy skies. 60s and 70s and 80s. beautiful sunrise that is for sure. they will be on the mover over the weekend. fog, high clouds for mostly cloudy saturday and sunday. cloudy to mostly cloudy. monday will be all right, tuesday increasing clouds and then we'll see about wednesday. >> steve, i have a question. if hurricane patricia goes across mexico and into the gulf of mexico. >> no it's going up to the rabid. from mexico and into texas. >> and they are bracing for flooding. >> yes. >> there is no way this could pick up steam again. >> no. once it hits mountains it really takes the energy. but land will decrease it rapidly. but that was a very good question. >> thank you.
7:22 am
new this morning there has been another earthquake in san ramon. it was a 3.2 magnitude quake that hit around 6:53 this morning. this comes a few hours after small four earthquakes struck near each other. the strongest was 2.8. this is the latest round of small quakes, swarm if you will in the area. several high school students rushed to the hospital. coming up in 15 minutes the prescription drug they got ahold of and the investigation under way. >> plus who says football is just for men? up next we'll introduce you to a michigan athlete who is proving she is just as good as the boys on the football field.
7:23 am
selling 18 homes? easy. building them all in four and a half months? now that was a leap. i was calling in every favor i could, to track down enough lumber to get the job done. and i knew i could rely on american express to help me buy those building materials. there are always going to be unknowns. you just have to be ready for them. another step on the journey... will you be ready when growth presents itself? realize your buying power at open.com
7:24 am
7:25 am
i mean, come on. themy someone requested this song i knew it had a future on traffic jams. this is requested by joslin who is one of our loyal viewers. and back to the '80s poison. if there is a special song you want us to play on this traffic jams friday, just use #ktvu on twitter, facebook, or instagram
7:26 am
and we get a lot of requests. i will choose the ones i think are going with the flow of the show. >> thank you, sal. 7:25. bart is working on a project to reduce crowded commutes on the trains. scrapped and damaged bart cars are being reconstructed and added back to the current fleet. bart officials say the cars will help them prepare for the new warm spring station. the project will ultimately allow for 800 more riders per car per day. a few days after breaking their losing streak and seeing a glimmer of hope, the niners were shut down by the sea hawks. they took an early lead. this was the first drive of the day. they were up 17-0 during halftime. 49ers didn't score in getting a field goal toward the end of the third quarter. collin kaepernick sacked six times. the 49ers play the rams in st. louis next weekend.
7:27 am
they will get a rematch against seattle on november 22nd. a high school football player is giving new meaning to the phrase you kick like a girl. taylor johnson is a place kicker. taylor is a competitor and that the team is guaranteed points when she is in the game because she is so accurate. she's made over 90% of her kicks. her mom says toy already's love for kicking may have started on the soccer field. >> they were just saw her kick one time and they're like we've got to get this girl on our team. >> i was definitely scared. i didn't know how the boys were going to take it. especially because i'm a girl. i department know how they were going to let me in and i department know how we were going to make that adjustment of having a girl on the team. >> looks like a team has adjusted quite nicely. they won five games. >> you know we actually had a
7:28 am
girl on our football team. she was a kicker and she was on the wrestling team. it was a video that captured the world's attention. a shark circling a surfer during a surfing competition. up next why that surfers mother is taking on advertisers. >> hurricane patricia the strongest on record is supposed to make landfall today on the pacific coast of mexico. we're live at sfo. we'll tell you about the impact to flights and the destruction expected. >> i have a new problem in oakland i want to show it to you. westbound 580 right near high street there is a crash and traffic it had been okay but right now believe it or not i might recommend using either 880 or city streets to get on 580 after high street. >> we have a lot of fog around here. some on the golden gate. some inland as well. a change for the weekend. we'll talk about that and more
7:29 am
on hurricane patricia.
7:30 am
7:31 am
7:31. we are bringing you live pictures from mexico. this is from the roof cam of a resort there. as you look at the picture, everything looks calm right now but owe do see clouds in the sky. certainly a major storm is
7:32 am
coming. in fact the u.s. national hurricane says it's the strongest ever recorded. that storm is causing big travel delays at home. janine de la vega is live at sfo. that is where this picture is coming from. janine will have more on cancellations at sfo and other bay area airports and talk about how people in mexico are trying to brace for this historic storm. good morning and welcome back to mornings on 2 i'm gasia mikaelian. >> good morning, i'm brian flores in for dave clark. let's get to steve. >> i wouldn't expect the web cams to work by tonight or tomorrow. the power will be out. strongest on wind speed. not on pressure but still it's a monster. strongest before the pacific or the at listen tick for us. anywhere close for us. it is looking like landfall will be tonight and tomorrow. we'll have more of that coming up on 10-12 minutes. this will be the big story tonight into the weekend.
7:33 am
we have a lot ovally clouds. down toward month began hill and gilroy. i know some floating around here. so on the coast as well. a lot of high clouds coming in up above. for that we will have a partly sunny partly cloudy day. increase in these clouds are on the way. not only today but as we go into the weekend there is a system phased to move into the north. might give some rain north. more likely up toward ukiah. 40s and 50s on your temps. kind of been stuck all morning long. hazy skies. mild. maybe warm for some. there is not much of a breeze yet. partly sunny and mild. 60s and 70s around the bay. all right sal 7:33 what do you have for us? something on the bay bridge. we do have that. we also have a problem in the east bay so it's all connected. 580 westbound the new crash at high street or west of high street. the coolest street over crossing. a couple of lanes blocked.
7:34 am
we visit on the maps for you. and now traffic is backing up past keller and oakland. pretty soon it will be. i think it already is backed up into san leandro on 580 westbound. if you want to get to the freeway perhaps you want to go down to park. if you are driving on 880 northbound you have to deal with slow traffic in san leandro. now to the bay bridge. steve mentioned it. we had an earlier crash on the span. they cleared it. four car injury crash. noninjury crash. traffic is slow. the damage done from that crash at the toll plaza. 30-40 minute delay. it had been so good today. it will take awhile for it to unwind. let's go one more thing here. this is northbound 280. this is looking good. the santa clara valley showing signs of a friday which means it's lighter than usual. now let's go back to the desk. the search goes on for a man who police say stabbed three grocery store work earns in pittsburgh last night.
7:35 am
investigators say the workers were attacked as they tried to stop the man from shoplifting. alex savidge is live with more. >> reporter: it appears a group of employees at this window food store they took action last night. they saw a man and was trying to steal razors. as he tried to leave, this group of employees confronted him. that is when the suspected shoplifter pulled a knife and attacked him near the front of this store. here's the man that police are still searching for this morning who is wanted in connection with this stabbing. investigators say the man you see here stabbed three employees during this confrontation. it happened just after 8:00 last night at this winkoa super market.
7:36 am
i talked this morning with a fellow employee at the winco food store and asked if he thinks he would get involved if he saw someone shoplifting. >> depends. if it's an elderly or child or something, then of course. or a woman. but if it's a man, i will let him handle his own. but if it's something i could stop, of course. yeah. it depends on the situation. >> and police say this all began as a confrontation. the employees confronting the man that was trying to leave the store with the razors. it turned into a fight. pulled out a medium size knife and stabbed three employees. they were all taken to the hospital. no word this morning on their exact conditions as we stand here now in the morning hour. we have reached out to
7:37 am
pittsburgh police looking for the update of those victims. also the search for the man behind the stabbing. i tried to figure out if police have identify him. >> okay. alex, thank you. in a developing story this morning. mexico and the state of texas are bracing for what is being called the strongest hurricane ever observed in the pacific ocean. hurricane patricia is heading toward the coast of mexico and it's expected to cause a lot of damage. janine de la vega is live at sfo to tell us about the impact the storm is having on flights to the area. janine, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, brian. people from the bay area who are vacationing they are going to have a tough time getting back here to sfo. all the connecting flights that go through lax are canceled today. and the direct flight to power toe vie war that scheduled to depart on alaska airlines it has been canceled.
7:38 am
we are talking about 200 miles an hour winds and 6-12 inches of rain. the u.s. national hurricane center says patricia is expected to make landfall this afternoon or evening betweenman neoand puero vallarta. a lot of the airlines that fly to puero vallarta they have warnings on their websites. if you have any travel plans are supposed to pick up someone from the airport, check the status first with the airline or by calling or going online. brian. >> janine, thank you for that update. outbreak of shigella linked to a south bay restaurant has grown to 110 cases and spread to four different counties. health officials say cases in
7:39 am
santa clara, santa cruz counties all came from mariscos restaurant. >> by the time i got to the emergency room, it was under excruciating pain. my whole back and my nervous system. my muscles, my bones were hurting. >> several patients including martin and his wife have filed lawsuits against the restaurant owner for medical expenses and lost wages. health officials are investigating the source of the outbreak. officials at pinole valley high school say five students were hospitalized after taking the prescription drug xanax. two others that took xanax were sent home with their parents. the school says concerns surfaced around lunchtime. >> teachers and staff noticed seven student who were acting in a way that gave them concern
7:40 am
and notified the health officials and law enforcement. >> it's still not known how much xanax the students ingested or where they got it. xanax is a prescription drug used to treat anxiety. surfer nick phan non's mother is speaking out. >> this is the commercial. you see the surfer emerges out of the water. riding the wave. holding the shark with one hand. fanning says the whole ad is disrespectful and didn't see the relevant of the kfc chicken burger and the shark and kfc
7:41 am
was listening and it the ad has been taken down. we will show you the actual video of the shark ail tack itself. which is incredible on its own. this is where fanning survived the near death experience during the final round of the jay bay open. this happened on july 19th on live television. mom was watching at home and said she wanted to reach through the screen but you see here her son is picked up and rescued and he turns out to be perfectically fine. >> and on his own. that is incredible. everyone wants to have a healthy baby and the focus has always been on the moms. a new study on how dads may play a bigger role even before the baby is conceived. >> we are look at traffic approaching marin. we do see some slowing on the richmond san rafael bridge approach. we also have some problems to check out in the east bay. we'll be right back.
7:42 am
my name is jeff richardson, the vice president of operations here at c.k. mondavi. to make this fine wine it takes a lot of energy. pg&e is the energy expert. we reached out to pg&e to become more efficient. my job is basically to help them achieve their goals around sustainability and really to keep their overhead low. solar and energy efficiency are all core values of pg&e. they've given us the tools that we need to become more efficient and bottom line save more money. together, we're building a better california.
7:43 am
7:44 am
welcome back to mornings on 2. time 17:44 -- time is 7:44. pam cook is back in the studio with a new study that showmans lifestyle and environment can effect his future children. >> there is more and more evidence that a mans lifestyle and habits can effect his baby even before that baby is conceived. now for years there has ban lot of effort to prevent birth defects but they have been primarily focused on women taking folic acid before and during pregnancy. the new study out of canada made an important discovery. it shows what is transmitted in a specific protein in the fathers sperm is also essential
7:45 am
to the health of his baby. >> if you think about a spool of thread that spool being the thing that the dna wraps around because dna is a hey lex and it's a spiral. what they found is that certain environmental factors can make that spool defective. like make a nick in it. so that dna doesn't wrap properly. >> the environmental factors include smoking, drugs but even stress. high sugar levels and cleaning solvents found in the dad can have an effect on his future baby. now the test also showed the dads abouts can effect not just his children but gasia and ryan, his grandchildren. >> interesting. >> yeah. >> so a lot of times see women have to be so careful. no drinking and smoking for you either. >> so dragging him to prenatal yoga doesn't happen so the damage is already there.
7:46 am
>> yeah you should go to prenatal yoga. time is 7:45 on the dot. we are keeping an eye on your traffic this morning on this friday. there is some pockets of heavy traffic this morning but over all sal would you say it's friday light? >> in many areas. what happens is we have friday light and occasionally we get something to ruin that. which is is unfortunate. we will start off with the bay bridge toll plaza westbound. we had a crash that had four cars up there at treasure island and they removed it quickly. there were no serious injuries. let's take a look at the toll plaza. you can see traffic is moving. it's about a 30-35 minute delay. if the lighter than usual traffic volume continues, we might see this actually clear up by 9:00. hopefully any way. 580 westbound near high street there is a crash blocking several lanes. the best thing to do for you is if you happen to live in oakland, don't get on the
7:47 am
freeway in park. if you go deutsche down to park -- if you go down to park and get on the freeway, there will be no one there. 280 northbound as you drive up to highway 17 that looks good. there goes caltrain. one engine. one, two, three, four, five passenger cars. caltrain is not experiencing any major delays. let's go to steve now. can you hear me? >> i can hear you now. >> that is my favorite. >> absolutely. >> let's get right to it. lots of sunrise pics coming in today. let's to say i've been a little busy. i've had my head buried in this hurricane. hurricane patricia. we do have a little change in our weather. there is very thick fog a couple reports from morganton
7:48 am
to davidson. also on the golden gate bridge we have higher clouds and they will be on the move. i don't want to say might. i don't want to say may but we've had so many head fakes here over the last three to four years. we will deal with it on monday. it looks like possible rain for us next wednesday. amazing intensity. amazing strength. it's feeding off 89-90-degree water temp. that certainly helps it being hurricane patricia. strongest ever recorded wind speed wise. this is stronger. the florida keys 35 was 185 miles an hour. this is 200. and aircraft has measured 225 miles per hour wind above the eye. 200 miles per hour moving north, northwest at 12.
7:49 am
it will take the turn and head towardman knee owe. 6-12 inches of rain. some in the mountain areas will get two feet of rain. so far pressure wise there has been stronger typhoons but those were measured by satellites. this was measured by humans so this qualifies on many, many levels and so does the warm ocean temps. we also have olaf that is falling apart moving north. and relatively cooler waters is still very warm. there is too many things that could go wrong with it. fog is here. higher clouds continue to roll
7:50 am
in. nice sunrise picks today. i would think sunset as well. hazy skies. mild. 70s. 60s and 70s and some 80s. i think we will take temperatures down a couple degrees here. cloud it up as we go into saturday and sunday. sunnyvale security firm learned it could hack exercise tracking devices fit bit from feet away. at 8:00 what fit bit is saying about the hack and what it will do after learning about the security breach. celebrating the past, present, and the future. the special wedding ceremony marty mcfly would have definitely been invited to.
7:51 am
7:52 am
7:53 am
