7:01 am
traffic. steve paulson has some things to tell you about. >> a lot of fog out there. we'll see what happens on wednesday. maybe some rain. i don't know. not looking real promising. let's look ahead to halloween. it looks mostly clear to me. after wednesday we will get a little bit of a breeze out of the north. changes though by sunday. some of that fog very, very thick. coast bay and also inland. what is average for this time of year 73/51. so above on both. again 2003 when the record was 89 degrees. 40s for some. 150s for many though. temperatures also and the breeze is really not that song, north, northwest. south, northeast. it's all over the place. we will have hazy sunshine today. hazy sun. nice to mild to warm. cool lows will give off to nice
7:02 am
and mild highs. here's sal at 7:01. slow traffic and anything new to report? we have a new crash i was going to tell you about, steve. and the fog you mentioned is also playing a role. good morning, everyone. let's take a look at the commute here. you will see the traffic is going to be effected by a new crash southbound 280 at sneaks lane. all of a sudden southbound 280 is backed up into daly city coming down to san bruno. if you are trying to get to the airport, you should use 101. it looks better on 280. let's go to the bay bridge toll plaza, traffic will be busy as you drive to the toll plaza. about a 20 minute delay. this morning on the east shore freeway, 46 minutes. not a very good commute. 7:02 let's go back to the desk. more than 100 people are confirmed dead after a powerful
7:03 am
earthquake rocked south save sha. it was felt across pakistan and parts of india. alex savage is here -- alex savidge is here with the latest. >> reporter: as rescue efforts get under way, that regent is still shaking. a couple after shocks reported. right now the over all death toll stands at 105. although reports are still trickling in from some remote areas. let's show you inside a hospital. officials in pakistan say hit people were killed in that country alone. at least 600 others were injured. and in afghanistan a tragic scene at least 12 students at a girls school were killed during a stampede that broke out as they all tried to escape a shaking building. this quake struck around 2:00 in the afternoon on monday. it was a 7.5 magnitude quake.
7:04 am
centered in northern afghanistan. about 160 miles north of kabul. some reports say the shaking lasted for two minutes and the quake did cut power in some areas making it tough for officials to accurately assess the damage in remote regions. the usgs has issued an orange alert. meaning significant casualties are likely. but there is a bit of a silver lining. at least one official in pakistan's meteorological department says the quake did not cause what he describes as massive destruction. that is because the epicenter here was so deep. it was centered 130 miles below ground which may have been the saving grace. may not be as. casualties as there may have been. >> thank you, alex. it was a fast moving fire early this morning in the hills of south san jose. it is out now.

luckily it did not get to homes. janine de la vega is there. you have been out there all morning. what is happening out there now? >> reporter: dave, firefighters have left the area. it's still too dark and foggy for them to see much for their investigation. a crew will return here in the morning to the area behind me. there was a ridge located in the southern end of the park that was on fire. it started around 3:00 this morning in the dry vegetation that is in the park. just north of bailey. around 65 firefighters responded because the flames were growing quickly in this area that has plenty of dry vegetation. san jose fire and cal fire worked together to extinguish it. the closest neighborhood is a half a mile to a mile away. the captain describes the area that burned. >> there really isn't anything out there. it's basically wild land.
7:06 am
it can be any of the normal causes of fire including a homeless encampment, unattended fire, heating equipment. we have no idea. >> reporter: fire officials tell us there is a lot of high tension power lines in the area and that was a concern for firefighters because they weren't sure if there was any live wires on the ground. that was not the case. santa teresa boulevard had been closed to traffic but in the last 40 minutes firefighters told police to open up that road. back to you. >> janine de la vega in san jose, thank you. in san jose police are looking for a motive in the friday night killing of a bay area realtor who was shot to death. mike was out celebrate bathing a birthday with -- celebrating a birthday with friends. they were waiting for a ride home when there were gunshots.

7:08 am
over, the suspect was not inside. now investigators released this photo of the suspected gunman 18-year-old jason alexander brown. a second man was involved in that shooting but they haven't told us his name yet. brown is suspected of shooting at a car with two people inside at the cvs store in livermore. a man in his 20s died. another man in his 20s was injured. investigators are waiting to talk to him about a possible motive. in the meantime anyone who might see brown should consider him armed and dangerous according to police and you should call 911. time is 7:08. for the first time the san jose city council will consider stiff signs for illegal dumping around the city. city leaders say dumping has risen sharply in recent years. the city's planning department is urging a fine of $1,000 for a first violation. $1500 for the second and $3,000 for the third. san jose is the only major bay

this. he even attacked ben carson's religion. >> i'm presbyterian. >> you know i really refuse to get into the mud pit. hillary actually was right when she said republicans are there trying to destroy each other. >> in the meantime there is a new ap poll out saying republicans think donald trump is their best bet when it comes to the general election. republican presidential candidate governor chris christie is apologizing. he was accused of being too loud on an amtrak train. the train crew eventually told the governor either hang up the phone or move to another car. you can see he did that. governor christie didn't know he was in a designated quiet
7:15 am
area. he apologized he moved to the cafe car where he kept making his phone calls. he was returning to new jersey from washington where he appeared on one of the sunday talk shows. if you think election politics can get strange in the u.s.. take a look at this scene from ukraine. that is chewbacca from star wars getting arrested in ukraine yesterday. why? because he was campaigning for darth vader on election day. and it's not the darth vader part that is the problem. it's ukrainian law forbids campaigning on election day. there was even a monument unvailed in his honor.

8:01 am
the fog if you are stuck that can be down right chilly. thick morning fog hazy sun. could be a few light clouds. and very low 80s. here is sal. 8:01. what do you have for us, sir? this monday morning hasn't been the greatest. we have a motorcycle crash. we will start with that at southbound 101. that crash has been in the lanes for a bit. it's a fatal accident so traffic will be backing up into roanoke park. somewhat nearby the same part of the bay. southbound 80 at solano accident there is a traffic accident. north part of the bay area i should say is not doing all that well as we move the maps a little bit. you can see marin county slow and 80 westbound as you drive from richmond down to the best of my recollectionly area. 580 has been solid.
8:02 am
so this monday you are not seeing a lot of brakes. 85 and 280 is very slow. if you drive on the freeways and it's always slow, this morning is no different. we can go to the bay bridge toll plaza for a live picture and it's backed up for a 25-30 minute delay. san mateo bridge just checking in with that span. you can see traffic there on the san mateo bridge is slow. there we go. and slow and it's moving off to a -- looking like it's driving off into a cloud. we are checking with sfo to see if there are delays for flights today. it usually is. 8:02 let's go back to the desk. developing news as we get new numbers on the death toll in the wake of that powerful earthquake that rocked south asia. now we are learning 180 people are confirmed dead. >> it was big. it was centered in northern afghanistan. ktvu fox 2 alex savidge is here with us now. what is the latest? >> reporter: good morning to

were killed in that stampede. the u.s. geological survey says this was 7.5 magnitude quake. it was 160 miles north of kabul. the quake struck at 2:00 in the afternoon on monday and sent people pouring into the streets. >> we felt the earthquake. we tried to get out of the house. it was very big. the wall was destroyed. >> reporter: and the quake has also cut power in many areas in those particular countries. afghanistan, pakistan, and parts of india. that has made it difficult for officials to accurately assess the damage. especially in remote regions. now the usgs issued an orange alert. and that means significant casualties are likely from the earthquake and the damage is potentially wide spread. but there is a bit of a silverlining if you want to call it that. at least one official says the
8:05 am
quake has not caused massive destruction and that is because of the fact that the epicenter of this quake was so deep. it was about 130 miles below ground. so that may have been the saving grace. many more people potentially could have been killed. >> yeah you think of what could have been. alex, thank you. time is 8:05. the ground keeps shaking in san ramon. you can see in the last 24 hour there is have been four small quakes in that san ramon valley area. the latest 2:48 this morning. it was a magnitude 2.6. over the past few weeks more than 200 small quakes have been reported in that area and it may continue. experts are blaming the calveras fault as it releases tension. san jose police are look into the motive of a friday night killing of a bay area realtor. mike was out celebrating a birthday with friends. they ended up at lou's beer

feel for what it looks like. you can see the blackened ridge there in the distance. firefighters are expected to come out here once all the fog lifts so they can take a look at what burned. here's video we took earlier where you can see the two lines of fire burning on the southern ridge. it started just after 3:00 this morning. san jose fire and cal fire worked quickly to contain the flame. when they arrived two acres of grass had already burned. they called in a lot of resources. 65 firefighters and a bulldozer. fire officials were able to get it under control. it never reached any homes though. >> so we reminded our crews to be cognizant. to look for any live wires on the ground. at this point it doesn't appear to be any involvement of the high tension lines but the origin of cause will take
8:10 am
daylight to figure out. >> reporter: and as you heard fire officials don't know the cause of the fire. the area is wild land so they do not know if it was -- there may be trails in that area but a place where no one should have been over night. santa theresa boulevard was closed earlier but it's been back open for the last couple of hours. >> janine, thank you. time is 8:10. we are following a developing story in canada. that is where at least five people have died because of a whale watching boat capsized. one person is still missing this morning. a lot of the survivors were treated and released. canada's transportation safety board is investigating what happened. a woman accused of driving a car into a crowd of people at oklahoma state university home coming parade is due in court today. four people were killed
