7:04 am
of the three big winning tickets was sold at that store in southern california. that 7-eleven in chino hills was mobbed. people we talked with say they are just happy that something great happened in their city. >> it's really exciting. yeah. i didn't win. i am happy for that person. >> chanting chino hills, chino hills. the clerk was overwhelmed by the people in the store spilling outside. they were all in great spirits and there was not a single problem. today state lottery officials will go to that store and present the owner with a check for $1 million because that store in santa barbara county sold one of the winning tickets. but you don't have to have all six numbers to have made a lot of money in last night's game. here are the numbers. the winning numbers are 4, 8, 19, 27, and 34.
7:05 am

7:17 am
what about the san mateo evil twin the dumbarton bridge? backed up out to the toll plaza and across to menlo park. now, when over to highway 101 it's not too bad. a little bit slow in san mateo and palo alto. if you are driving on 101 northbound into the city, it is just a little bit slow once you pass that old candlestick exit. 7:17. let's go to steve. i like the view from the dumbo as you are driving over. >> it's nice. right now there are a lot of other people looking at that view with you. >> that's true. saw, sal. all right. we will get right to it here. increasing clouds. colder this morning. the key though is we may be setting up for some pretty good rain for the north bay. not so much to the south. people are saying, what's going on? hang in there. hang in there. pattern is looking rather impressive. and if it pans out, that being some of our long-range forecasts, the end of the month is looking wet and the next five to seven days wet to north as
7:18 am
well. suffice to say i think we are an active pattern and it's going to get more so. this next symptom coming in will tend to lean more towards the north. rainfall amounts south could not much to, okay, not bad. that's from about marin county northward. the breeze picks up. sierra snow 2-7 inches. weather advisory 2:00 today. 4500 feet to 5500 feet. could get light rain in advance of. this so far cloud cover. radar not picking up too much. but it's going to be a really, i think, a very wet pattern from about santa rosa north. if you are in the north coast, looks wet here. 30s on the panel or 40s. colder by 10, almost 20 degrees for some compared to 24 hours ago. the first system is moving across. this is almost looking old school here, if you will. but you can see where this plume of moisture that i'm standing
7:19 am
right in front of, look at that. i mean, that's impressive. there is going to be between now and, i'd say, next thursday maybe about a foot for some on rainfall total. we will be in the category of continuous rain for some, and some of that will be steady. so rain develops tonight into early friday. then late friday into saturday a stronger series of systems or some moisture moving in late sunday. monday no tuesday widespread rain for everything. today a north bay event. heaviest there. lighter to the south. but the cloud cover is for everybody. so some morning fog, clouds increasing. if there is any sun, believe me, it's not going to last long. rain in the north bay. for everyone else, later on. the evening commute, especially 101 north, marin county, sonoma county, opportunity for some rain on the way home an everywhere else. 50s on the temps and a lot of cloud cover here is in the mix. it's almost impossible to time
7:20 am
it. suffice to say i think we are in rain for here. >> a lot of people are asking me if i'm driving up to the snow this weekend, timing getting up on friday, saturday. >> get the out by sunday night. >> so a lot of people have monday off for the holiday. >> i think you will be stuck monday. >> get out sunday? okay. >> unless you don't care, you snow? if you are off on monday and deal with it tuesday. >> with eight hours in the car. >> there you go. that, too. >> okay. >> thanks, steve. time now 7:20. uber often criticized for background checks may be changing things. new reports of the new policy may affect potential drivers who have a criminal record. in 20 minutes, what that new policy may be. and take a look at your screen. a dramatic piece of surveillance video here. you are watching walgreen's workers trying to take down a make-up thief in san francisco. what that thief did that finally caused the workers to let him go.

i could feel our deadlines racing towards us. we didn't need a loan. we needed short-term funding fast. building 18 homes in 4 ½ months? that was a leap. but i knew i could rely on american express to help me buy those building materials. amex helped me buy the inventory i needed. our amex helped us fill the orders. just like that. another step on the journey. will you be ready when growth presents itself? realize your buying power at shining, shimmering, splendid tell me, princess, now when did you last let your heart decide a whole new world welcome to aulani it's hawaii with a touch of disney magic. for special offers visit or call your travel agent
7:23 am
7:23a struggle caught on surveillance video here. you are watching as workers at a walgreen's store in san francisco try take down a shoplifter. this happened on chestnut street december 18. a man san francisco police are calling a make-up bandit went streit for the make-up counter, stuffed his pockets. you see employees trying to stop him. the man in the santa hat and blue shirt pulls the thief back inside, but the man pulled out
7:24 am
a knife. he took off on a bicycle. police want to hear from anyone with information on what happened. san francisco police say a suspect being chased by police rammed into a patrol car last night and hurt one officer. this happened before 9:00 on the great highway. police are only telling us the officer spotted a stolen car and chased it and during the chase the car hit the police car, injuring the officer's right arm. the officer kept chasing the stolen car on the interstate 280 but the car got away. time is 7:24. a man trapped 13 hours in a trench in oakland is telling us what that was like. 40-year-old row helio esparza was repairing a sewer line. he described through his translator the moment when the walls of the trench caved in. >> it just happened in seconds.
7:25 am
>> more than two dozen firefighters were out there to rescue him. he is recovering from minor injuries. he is hoping to get out of highland hospital today. cal osha is investigating what happened. 7:25. a miracle. a lake county dog that went missing during the valley fire four months ago now is finally back with their owners. take a look at tia. a husky pit bull mix. darcy andrews says she was trapped in the home when evacuations began in september. authorities wouldn't allow the family through roadblocks to rescue their pets before fire destroyed their home, but somehow too he a got out. it wasn't until just last week that a neighbor down the street spotted tia still wearing her tags. >> this guy started describing tia over the phone to me, that he had her. and i started bawling. he is like our family hero right now. >> that's what neighborhoods
7:26 am

7:27 am
7:28 am
7:29 am
7:29 this thursday morning. welcome back to "mornings on 2". >> and good morning. i am dave clark. let's check weather and traffic. steve paulson, you've got a lot to tell us? >> i do. not a lot of time, dave and gasia. a system moving in that will give rain to the north bay. the lows were colder this morning. 30s and 40s. this cloud cover is going to trap everything. it's gonna be a cool day. a lot of 50s. this is sean. south bay seems pretty average. sure doesn't feel like el nino in sunnyvale. be patient, okay? el nino does not mean heavy,
7:30 am
heavy rain. it means more continuous rain. if you go back to january in 1998 in san francisco, i think they had 25 days out of 30, 31 that this rain, measurable, but nothing greaterrer than 1.75. it just keeps going and going and going. that pattern developing right now may be one of those for the russian river north. there are many systems in the pipeline. everything is leaning towards what looks to be a wet pattern. there will not be a lot south of san francisco, oakland, and concord, but there will be to the north. some of the projections are 7, 10, 11 inches of rain north of mendocino or ukiah. 30s on the temps here. cloudy today. temperatures held in check because of the cloud cover with rain developing. so there is some fog out there. clouds already moving in. so cloudy, afternoon rain more to the north, far less to the south, but it will make it. temperatures low-mid 50s for some, but upper 40s i think far to the north. sal, what do you have for
7:31 am
us? >> good morning. i am just looking at my list here. chp doesn't have a lot of incidents, but we have slow traffic out there. so i don't want to mislead you. it's not great, but it's not as bad. i think this afternoon, as you heard the man say, it's going to be raining in many areas and that means the afternoon commute is not going to be a good one. prepare for that driving home. you know, you drive great, but that other guy, boy, that other guy drives terribly in the rain. moving along and taking a look at the commute on the san mateo bridge. that traffic is moving along okay as you drive over to the high-rise. when you get over to highway 101, the traffic there looks okay. there are no problems there. we look at our road sensors and highway 101 and 28 0 are doing very well. 101 is slow from about the brisbane area near the candlestick exit and it stays that way to caesar chavez. back to the desk. >> thank you. some new information coming in now about a deadly shooting over the weekend on a bart train. ktvu fox 2's allie rasmus is in
7:32 am
our newsroom telling us about some new surveillance photos and a pretty startling came from the "san francisco chronicle" about the security cameras on bart trains, allie? >> reporter: dave, according to the chronicle, many of the cameras on bart trains are dummy cameras meant to deter crime, but not capable of recordin any video. that comes after the police chief spoke about the investigation into a fatal shooting on board a bart train this weekend. >> this is a pretty brazen, random act. >> reporter: police believe the man in this picture is the person behind it. on 745 saturday evening police say he exited the west oakland bart station just minutes after shooting and killing a fellow passenger on board a san francisco-bound train. the chief said investigators do not know the motive for the shooting. they do not the know whether any sort of confrontation led up to it or whether there was any relationship between the shooter and the victim. investigators don't know yet who the victim. shooting is. he had no identification on
7:33 am
him. they described him only as a man between the ages of 19 and 25 who is possibly latino. now, the picture of the alleged shooter came from cameras at the entrance. bart is supposed to have cameras on board their trains. according to the investigation by the "san francisco chronicle," many of bart's train cameras are fake. they don't record any actual video. now, chief rainey was asked several times whether there is any video of the shootings on saturday from on board that train. here's what he said. >> reporter: can you answer whether or not there was a camera on this train and if it was working? >> again, these are the photos that we're prepared to release regarding -- >> but -- i. understand. this is what i'm answering to your question. these are the photos we are prepared to release at this point, okay? we are asking for the public's assistance in helping us identify this suspect. >> reporter: now, according to the "san francisco chronicle" today, bart police have no on board video of the shooting
7:34 am
from saturday because the camera on that train was not working. now, we've reached out to a bart spokesperson to ask them to respond to some of the claims in "the chronicle's" report but we have not heard back. >> thank you, allie. 7:34. you probably went to bed last night knowing you did not win the powerball. there were three tickets sold that matched all the numbers to that historic $1.6 billion jackpot. one in california. the others in tennessee and florida. winning numbers are 4, 8, 19, 27, 34. powerball number is 10. take a look at the numbers. double check your tickets. unless you went to southern california, i don't think you have that ticket. however, we do have a reporter in southern california. mario ramirez at the store where that winning ticket was sold. talk to us about chino hills in santa barbara county. people are celebrating, hundreds of them, like they personally won? >> reporter: yes. last night a big celebration. this morning still a big
7:35 am
celebration. what a big day for this 7- eleven in chino hills. we have three big winners. two tickets sold out of state and one here at this 7-eleven in chino hills. but we want to show you the excitement spreading through chino hills. take a look at this video after the news broke last night. a large crowd began packing the store. even spilling into the parking lot. each third of the jackpot, listen to this, now worth $528 million if taken over 30 years or a lump sum of $327 million. nonetheless, the community here in chino hills came out and showed its support. the store owner has been at this 7-eleven for 24 years. he says he was completely you shocked to hear this news. >> i was home. i have a friend, they was calling me here. somebody win the lotto in chino. your store. i say, i don't know. and then like i was watching tv. he said at that time i learn,
7:36 am
oh, that's my store. >> reporter: don't rip up your tickets just yet. in addition to the three big winners, 12 tickets in california matching five of the six numbers now worth $638,000. here are the winning numbers again. 4, 8, 19, 27, 34, and the lucky powerball number 10. back out here live, this is the machine why that lucky lottery ticket came from. state lottery officials are planning to hold a press conference here at 11:00 this morning. but again that winner here in chino hills has not come forward. keep in mind they have about a year to claim the prize. reporting here in chino hills, we will send it back to you in the studio. >> talk to me a little bit about the town of chino hills. from what i understand, it's been ranked as one of the best places to live. people there have a fairly high average income. tell me about the town itself. >> reporter: well, chino hills is about 40 minutes from downtown l.a. a little suburb. here is the interesting thing. chino hills has never seen a
7:37 am
big win like this. we've done our live shots all week at hawthorne, bluebird liquor store. that's the lucky spot. look on the wall. this is where the last lottery winner was named. only $4,956. so nothing compared to this big prize here, and a lot of people in chino hills celebrating, walking in congratulating the store on the big win. >> people calling their relatives. mario, thank you. revised figures show that san francisco could pay more than $4.5 million to host super bowl-related events. that's about a half million dollars more than the first estimate released last week. the extra expenses are for hiring extra parking control officers. the city says those figures were accidentally left out of the original cost estimates. as we have been bringing you, there is some criticism about the price of hosting super bowl events, but san francisco says the economic benefits will far outweigh the costs.
7:38 am

7:46 am
drive up highway 17. as a matter of fact, i have pulled up the south bay map to show you the rest of the south bay other than 280. you saw 280. 85 is not better and neither is 101. all the freeways are crowded getting into the valley, and 880 south from hayward to fremont is slow as well. dumbarton and san mateo bridge also very crowded. bay bridge toll plaza as you might imagine going to see a backup from the macarthur maze. there it is. i hear that music. boris has his own music. our spider is there. the traffic is backed up for a 20-minute delay at the toll plaza. steve, i asked people, because it's oscar season, tell me the greatest movies they have ever seen. since alan rickman died, some of those films are coming up. >> well, a couple. die-hard, my goodness. galaxy quest was in there. >> any others? >> well, harry potter movies.
7:47 am
he was in love actually. >> there you go. >> thank you, sir. all right. let's get to it. a little bit of sun. a lot of cloud cover on the way. it's going to continue to move in giving us a cloudy, mostly cloudy day. doug ahrens sent in a tweet. he says, why did they name a hurricane after alex savidge? well, atlantic hurricane. actually, it's a confusing. in the eastern atlantic since 1938, the first in the atlantic since alice in 1955. very rare on many levels. too confusing here. but heading towards the azores. moving northward. it's not, you know, it's not going to make much of an impact unless you are by the azores. napa valley, kathy, not a bad sunrise today in napa. i'll say. there were a couple of reports of that. i had a couple of photos of the
7:48 am
pattern is looking wet for some. not so much for others. we will still get some rain. heavier amounts to the north bay. this system will give not much. san jose area about .05. santa rosa north .75-inch and sierra winter weather advisory starting at 2:00. cloud cover already moving in. a cloudy day. rain beginning to develop on the north coast and there is going to be some heavy rain here. not necessarily from this system, but over the next five to seven days. the lows took a plunge this morning because skies were clear for a while. the cloud cover coming in stopped the temperatures from dropping farther than they did. but the temperatures will be on the -- hard pressed to get above upper 40s, low 50s in the north bay. a lot of cloud cover. it's taking aim at the north. active rain pattern here tonight into tomorrow morning, and then again late friday into saturday. those are going to be in the north bay. sunday night and then maybe
7:49 am
monday, tuesday looks to be heavier rain for everybody. now, we he'll see still four, five days away. that's the way it's looking right now. the rest of the month is looking active as well. north bay rain from this next front, heaviest to the north, far lighter to the south. cloud cover is here. that's beginning to move in. rain will develop. evening commute should be dicey going north. cooler lows means high temps again with all the cloud cover. upper 40s, low 50s northward. mid 50s for everybody else. what we're looking at is unsettled pattern. rain tonight friday, late friday, saturday, sunday night into monday. back to the desk. >> thank you. time is 7:49. uber is making headlines this morning, but the ridesharing company may not be happy about it. uber may be fined and suspended over reporting practices. >> pam cook to tell us. a convicted criminal may soon be your uber driver. what is uber planning? >> a lot of things happening today. they are talking about relaxing the screening requirements for
7:50 am
drivers in california. that could mean drivers have a criminal history. the catch is that the applicants have to get their felony convictions reduced to a misdemeanor or have the crimes expunged under prop television 47. now, prop 47 reclassifies certain felony offenses as misdemeanors. that includes possession of drugs, check fraud, and petty theft. they have to be non-violent. if you have failed a background check with uber in the past, you might be able to resubmit once that has been changed. also today the california public utilities commission votes on whether uber will be suspended or fined $7.6 million for failing to meet data reporting requirements in 2014. a judge ruled uber did not follow state laws that ensure customers are treated fairly when calling for a ride, that drivers don't discriminate based on where someone lives or ethnic background. uber appealed, but the courts
7:51 am
levied a higher fine adding contempt. after the decision today, uber will have to pay the fine immediately or suspend services for 30 days. i just got off the phone with a spokesperson for uber who says that connecting people with the non-profit organization is what they are doing to help to fix their criminal under prop 47 so they can get a job. as for the cpuc, it's kind of strange that that organization oversees uber. we will talk a little bit more about that in our next hour of "mornings on 2". she tells me that uber plans on paying that fine. we will have -- rather than suspending services for 30 days, that would be big hit as a business. >> wow. >> more on that in the next hour. >> okay, pam, thanks. time is 7:51. you have heard people say their heart skips a beat when they met the one. now how your vital signs could be used to help you find your soulmate. first, he coached the raiders not too long ago, but now one of the 49ers top
7:52 am
candidates for head coach, he is taking another head coaching job. who the 49ers are reportedly focused on now. great change : a@8ñ mk comes from doing the right thing. like the radical idea that health isn't an industry.
7:53 am
it's a cause. so we do things differently. we combine care and coverage. and believe prevention is the most powerful of cures. so forgive us for not going with the flow. we just think the flow should go with us. which makes us rebels with one cause. your health.
7:54 am
welcome back to "mornings on 2". time 7:54. happening today a san francisco judge will hear arguments about requiring a catholic hospital to perform a contraceptive you procedure. a woman is suing mercy medical center in redding. it refused to perform a tubal
7:55 am
ligation after a c-section. she said she and her husband didn't want any more children. the nearest hospital that would perform the surgery is more than 70 miles from where she lives. the hospital's lawyer says the surgery is not medically necessary and would violate the hospital's right of freedom of religion. after the nfl rejected the oakland raiders bid to move to southern california this week there is renewed talk about the raiders sharing levi stadium with the 49ers. mark davis has repeatedly rejected the option. some say it could be the smartest move financially and geographically instead of building a new stadium for the raiders. officials say levi has two home locker rooms and l.e.d. lighting that can change the stadiums colors if the raiders were to move in. if they don't make a decision soon, the nfl may strongly suggest that the team move to santa clara. >> my gut is telling me that mark davis does not want to move to levi stadium. my gut also tells me that if
7:56 am
the oakland stuff does not pan out, the national football league will nudge mark davis to look at playing at levi stadium. >> santa clara's mayor says he is open for discussion and if the raiders moved in to levi, it could be a big financial boost for that city. there are several reports this morning mike shanahan is now one of the top choices to be the new 49ers head coach. espn reports shanahan is back in the mix. shanahan was the 49ers offensive coordinator from 1992 to '94. he has not coached in two years after being fired by the washington redskins. meantime, former top contender for the 49ers job hue jackson here, he is now the new head coach of the cleveland browns. and it's expected he'll have a lot of control over the personnel there. he probably would not have been given that in san francisco, and there are reports that his hiring could mean the end of johnny manziel's career in
7:57 am
cleveland. the quarterback, he has been involved in several controversial off the field incidents. 7:57. there is a new report this morning that a controversial hospital expansion project won't be done any time soon. in minutes, why the santa clara board of supervisors may do some backtracking over valley medical center. plus, an overnight traffic stop here in the east bay ends with a man dead. authorities say that he was in a stolen car and jumped off the side of the freeway freeway. we'll tell you the unusual place he landed coming up. good morning. you are looking at a commute here on eastshore freeway that is still busy, but getting a little better as you head out to the macarthur maze where you will be waiting in traffic before you make it onto the bridge. cloudy to mostly cloudy already. it's on the cooler side today. rain's on the way. not for all, but for the north bay. more on that.
7:58 am
7:59 am
8:00 am
no way. ?q savor an egg mcmuffin any time you like. a fresh cracked egg, canadian bacon and an english muffin with real butter. mcdonald's all day breakfast menu. the wait is over. three powerball tickets won the jackpot last my, and one of them was in california. we will tell you which city and how many tickets won second place in northern california. this is ktvu "mornings on 2". good morning. thank you for joining us. thursday, january 14. i am dave clark. >> i am gasia mikaelian. let's check weather and traffic starting with steve to help you get out the door. today is the day for a jacket,
8:01 am
but maybe not a raincoat? >> until later. not right now, but, yes, later. the morning's okay. fog out there. it's much colder, that's for sure. cloudy here. if there is any breaks, i don't think they will last long. this isetting up to be start of a wet pattern. i think eventually for many in the north bay. first we will ease into it. albert up in fort bragg. this is the wide receivers winter ever. "fifty shades of grey" i get it, thank you, albert. a little comedy there. fort bragg will see heavy rain over the next couple of days. the first system is beginning to move on now. again this is heavier to far north out of my forecast zone. i know you're up there. rain develops in the north bay later this afternoon and tonight. it will be steady. i don't want to say heavy, but steady. heavy will be far to the north. we will have to wait until late tonight into tomorrow morning. 30s and 40s. temperatures take ig a plunge until that cloud cover came in and you can see there is a lot
8:02 am
of cloud cover. boy, that moisture plume is aimed right at the north bay. so morning fog santa rosa, napa, among others. cloudy. right rain developing later on tonight into early tomorrow morning everyone else. 50s on the temps. low-to-mid. sal, things getting better, worse, what? >> a crash. 880 northbound. i want to go right to it here. 880 northbound up to the coliseum there is a crash at 66th. there is emergency vehicles. can you see it's right there. it's also causing a slowdown on southbound 880. look at all this backup here getting up to the scene. so it is going to be slow for the time being on 880 northbound, and that crash, we can see it there, still there in that fast lane. looks like there is -- look, there is a fire truck trying to get up to the exit and scene. so it looks like it might be there for a bit. again 880 northbound, you might want to think about 580 as an alternate. we will check that out coming up. let's go to the toll plaza. right now traffic at the toll
8:03 am
plaza is going to be slow as you drive from the macarthur maze. now lets go back to the maps because i just showed you that crash. there it is on the nimitz freeway. 580 is backed up from san lorenzo as you drive through -- san leandro as you drive through. i would go that way, to be honest with you. i wouldn't deal with this. that's ridiculous. use 580 as an alternate for the time being. 8:03. back to the desk. new this morning an odd but true story coming to us from alameda county. a suspect fell to his death at a cemetery. >> he was driving a stolen car trying to get away from sheriff's deputies this morning. ktvu fox 2's alex savidge has been on this story for hours. >> reporter: good morning to both of you. really a sad and strange end to this traffic stop early this morning. this man was driving a stolen car, according to investigators. he was trying to get away from sheriff's deputies and decided to jump off the side of this
8:04 am
freeway. this is highway 238. after the man jumped, he landed down below. down below you can see here it's a historic cemetery. this is the san lorenzo pioneer cemetery. the man ultimately died from that 30-foot fall. this whole situation began around 12:30 this morning when alameda county sheriff's deputies spotted a stolen car that the man was in and tried to make a traffic stop. now, the driver slowed down and eventually pulled over on the freeway on highway 238 right above this boulevard. the man immediately ran from the car, climbed a chain-link fence on the side of the freeway, and then jumped over the side and ultimately was killed. now, the man who died, he has been identified as paul giacomini. he was 40 years old according to authority. we are not getting any information where he lived.
8:05 am
investigators this morning are also saying that there was a second person inside of that car with the driver when this car stopped on the freeway last night. it's unclear exactly what happened to that passenger. >> all right. alex savidge in san lorenzo. thank you for the update. we will talk to you later. 8:05. the other story people are talking about, there are three big winners in that historic powerball jackpot drawing. whoever holds those tickets will split the money from the world's biggest jackpot. those winning tickets sold in southern california, florida, and tennessee. >> but there are some second place winners, and those winners may be right here in the bay area. ktvu's janine de la vega in santa cruz. that's where one of the second place tickets were sold, janine? >> reporter: yeah. it is very cool for this chevron convenience store here on socal avenue. even better for whoever it is the person who won. you can see here the store behind me, the person who
8:06 am
bought this matched five out of the six numbers for powerball. and they may not even know that they're richer this morning yet. that's because nobody has claimed the ticket and gone inside the store. the ticket is worth $638,000. there were 12 winners in california who matched the five numbers, but not the powerball number, and they all get that same amount. four of the stores that had winners, they are located in northern california. besides here in cruz, a 7- eleven in vacaville, a 76 gas station? santa rosa and a quick stop? cloverdale. some customers knew their chances of winning were slim, but they woke up a little bit disappointed. >> i know the statistics are we are not gonna win. i do it for my parents. my parents seem to get this kind of visceral kind of feeling of, i don't know, elation when they buy one. so i actually thought that there was going to be another shot at it this saturday.
8:07 am
>> reporter: there is another shot saturday, but the jackpot is a lot lower. >> exactly. so i'm kind of bummed out now. sad morning. >> reporter: so now the jackpot goes back down to $40 million. and we did talk to people who said they will still buy a ticket for saturday's drawing. now, we are still waiting to find out more details from this chevron convenience store. we are trying to find out from the clerks, like, hey, do you happen to know who the customer is who bought the ticket? you know, how much are you guys going to get as far as a bonus? it's a corporate-owned store and we haven't heard back from the corporate offices. gasia. >> okay. disappointment. >> yeah, yeah. >> thank you, janine. san francisco police are searching for a shoplifter when threatened store employees with a knife. it was a struggle and it was caught on surveillance video as we're showing you here. workers tried to take the man down. this happened at the walgreen's on chestnut street on december 18. san francisco place call him
8:08 am
the make-up bandit. he watch here as a number of employees tried to stop him. one worker, the man there in the blue shirt with the red santa hat, pulls the man back inside. then the shoplifter pulls out a knife. the employees let him go. took you have a on a bicycle. police want to hear from anyone with information on what happened. san francisco police say a suspect being chased by police last night rammed into a patrol car and injured an officer. it happened before 9:00 on the congratulate -- on the great highway. officers spotted a stolen car, chased it, and during a pursuit the suspect hit the police car and injured the officer's right arm. now, he was able to still chase that suspect onto interstate 280, but he lost him. a controversial hospital expansion in santa clara county may cost more and take longer to finish than first thought. the san jose "mercury news" reports it could cost an extra
8:09 am
$126 million to finish valley medical center's new building. the consultant said it will take 14 more months to finish. this report comes months after county supervisors fired turner construction saying the company kept missing deadlines and raising and increasing costs. turner denies those claims. but the paper reports this new estimate is actually the same as turner construction's bid, and that the county is considering hiring turner once again. we have been following a developing story from overseas. explosions and gunfire. there has been another deadly terrorist attack. this time in indonesia. at 8:30, who claims responsibility and the target of the attack. but next, it could be a turning point in the 2016 race for the white house. we will bring you a preview of tonight's republican presidential debate. al good morning. we are looking at a mess on interstate 880 because of a crash here on 880 northbound. it's right there at the top of
8:10 am
your screen. hasn't gone anywhere. unfortunately, the longer it stays, the worse this commute's gonna get.
8:11 am
8:12 am
tonight is a big night for the republican presidential candidates. it comes as the iowa state caucuses are two and a half weeks away. >> fewer candidates on the stage tonight. our reporter caroline shively live in charleston, south
8:13 am
carolina. good morning. >> reporter: morning, guys. >> let's start by talking about the frontrunners, donald trump and ted cruz. what do you expect from them tonight? >> reporter: things are gonna get a lot meaner. they haven't a exactly been a love 49er, but they have held on the attacks. it brings up the issue of citizenship. cruz has been blowing that off for weeks, but just this week he is taking a turn. he knows he needs to take a change. to quote one of the moderators, there arele some grenades thrown tonight. >> loot of eyes on trump and cruz. for the others on the stage should we expect them to make big gestures to try to get some attention? >> reporter: i think so. there is limited media time after and of course on the
8:14 am
morning shows. they want to have had the zingers. to have the interesting policy points. they may make some desperate plays or get their names into the members. you might see cruz and rubio have a face-off. christie trying to get in there. he has made strides in new hampshire. but he needs to make a splash as well as jeb bush. the money is drying up for. so the candidates. they need attention. they need donors. they need money. and they need people to be talking about them tomorrow morning. >> right. now, i know you're gauging the mood down there in south carolina. anybody anticipating a game change tonight? >> reporter: it could be. it really could be. any little you movement could change things up. iowa less than three weeks away now. we are within the margin of error between trump and cruz. that could be a game changer. also, if anybody makes a big goof. if anybody doesn't step up or says something awkward, now voters are making up their
8:15 am
minds. last week it was a half to a third of the voters in new hampshire and iowa haven't picked a candidate yet. so they need to pick one. if anybody messes up, yeah, they could be out of the race within days. >> plus, carly fiorina, rick santorum, mchuckabee at the kids table. rand paul is not participating. do any of these candidates still have a chance? >> reporter: it's interesting. it would have to take a leap. a major leap. they are out in the 1%, 2% in the national polls. just about that in the iowa and new hampshire polls. so it would be huge. some these guys may be playing for a vice presidental spot at this point. tonight's debate is going to be the smallest field on the big stage we have seen so far. just seven people up there. and that's what happens. that's natural. voters are discarding who they decide they don't want and picking up the guys they do
8:16 am
want. >> thank you so much. time is 8:15. we have got to go to sal because you are talking about what is happening on 880. what's going on? >> a crash there, dave and gasia, northbound 880 as you pass 66. just north of the coliseum. within the view of our camera. i will show it to you here. northbound 880 as you come up to 66, this crash has been there now for the last 25 minutes or so. looks like they have some tow trucks in the area trying to clear it out. it's also causing a backup southbound. but the traffic is slow and it's backed up all the way out. in fact, i want to show it to you here. westbound 580 is the alternate route as you drive. you think it's better. you will see slow traffic, but it's better than trying to wade through the slow traffic on 880. so keep that in mind. looking at some other maps in the south bay, 101, 280 and 85 are slow getting into the valley. really mountain view bound drivers on 101 are going to be
8:17 am
in for slow traffic on 237. the bay bridge toll plaza. that is backed up for a 15-minute wait. let's bring steve in here. thank you, sir. plenty going on here locally and it's only going to increase, that being rain over the next few days in the north bay. maybe not so much towards the south bay. i have seen this pattern before. speaking of, cloudy skies. there will be some off and on light rain. north of the golden gate things could get interesting here. speaking of interesting, we have an atlantic hurricane. very rare for january. first since 1955. alex. now it is moving north. what's interesting is we also had in the central pacific tropical storm pali. so we had one in the pacific. now one in the atlantic. very unusual for january. pali is running into too much sheer and close proximity to the equator. it's just a tropical depression now. alex formed rapidly last night. it's heading towards the
8:18 am
azores. also something we were looking for last year. we hope not too much of a good thing. won't be around here. to the north coast first. there are projections of heavy rain the next five to seven days. the rest of the month looks wet. more favorable for us towards sunday, monday, into tuesday. today a lot of cloud cover. there are some watches and warnings out on the lee side. a wind advisory. there is a winter weather advisory for the sierra and the northern mountains that kicks in about 2:00. a lot of rain that's taking aim at northern california. also shasta, lake shasta. so this could be very good for them for a while. for us it looks like it's setting up for the north bay. 30s and 40s on your temps here. there is plenty of moisture coming in. there is a series of systems. the one coming in on sunday night, monday looks wetter for everybody. the next few days it may be one of those ones, if you are talking to somebody in the northbound, it's pouring rain, and in the south bay, nothing here. cloudy. afternoon rain more to the
8:19 am
north bay. upper 40s, low 50s for some. temperatures don't look like they are going anywhere any time soon. i think we are stuck in this pattern for a while. a little bit of sun towards the santa clara valley or the east. rain is on the way tonight into friday night. friday night, saturday, and then a break sunday. but sunday night, monday looks like a pretty good system. >> wow. okay, steve, thank you. 8:19. probably felt your heart skip a beat when you meet someone special. >> oh, yeah. >> a european dating service is tracking that adrenaline rush and increased heart rate. the dating site allows users to sync their fitbit to their app and lets them see their heart rate in real time had they get a glimpse of that match. they say the app makes it easier to know when someone really makes another user. right now it's available in the u.k., france, and spain. no word yet on when it will be available in the united states. >> make that heart pitter patter. >> i love that feeling. time is 8:19.

quick resolution of the incident a victory for diplomacy. well, our time is 8:38. at the home new questions this morning about that deadly weekend shooting on a bart train and why surveillance cameras on the train didn't capture it. >> allie rasmus back in the studio with a startling report from "the chronicle" about phony and just not working at all cameras. >> they call them dummy cameras. they are props. they are made to look like a real camera, but they don't record any actual video. according to the "san francisco chronicle" today, many of the cameras passengers may notice in bart's train cars are in fact those dummy cameras and they don't work at all. this comes after bart's police chief spoke with the fatal shooting of a bart passenger saturday night. police say this man seen in this video exited the west oakland bart station minutes after shooting and killing a fellow passenger on board a san francisco bound train. now, the picture came from video cameras at the station
8:40 am
entrance. bart is also supposed to have cameras on board their trains, but again the "san francisco chronicle" says many of those cameras do not work. bart police chief wouldn't specifically answer the question about whether or not there was working video from the train car where the shooting happened. >> yeah, we have a pretty robust camera system. we have cameras on trains. we have cameras on the platforms. at you can see, we have cameras on the ingress and egress. we have cameras in our offices. >> reporter: "the chronicle" reports two anonymous sources with bart told them there was no working video camera in the train car where the shooting occurred. we reached out to bart. they have not yet responded to us. one other thing we should mention. chief rainey at the press conference described the shooting as a, quote, brazen and random act. investigators don't know if the victim and the shooter knew each other. they don't have a motive. they also don't know the identify it i of the victim yet
8:41 am
because he didn't have any id on him. they are just describing him as a young man between 19 and 25 years old, possibly latino. a lot of unanswered questions coming out of that press conference yesterday with the chief. >> back to the dummy cameras. i know that they are used in stores and other mass transit systems. studies have shown that if people think they are on camera, they will be on their better behavior. so we don't know yet if this camera on this train was a dummy camera or if it wasn't working? those are two separate things here? >> right. that's what the chief specifically wouldn't answer at all yesterday at the press conference. several reporters specifically asked him, is there working video from the train car? and he sort of basically dodged the question and said all we're prepared to talk about is this. >> even those dummy cameras help cut down on lower level crimes? >> that is the idea behind it. it's supposed to serve as a
8:42 am
deterrent. "the chronicle" article mentioned by 2017 and 2021, when bart gets its new fleet of cars in, bart spokesperson, according to that article, say that those new train cars will have, all this working cameras. so the thought is maybe in the interim while they wait for these new cars they are just using some of those prop cameras as a deterrent. >> okay. allie rasmus, thank you. time is 8:42. the company that makes a popular lip balm has legal problems with people who filed a class action claim. a fine of almost $8 million for youtube. uber. we are looking at a commute in the east bay that is finally beginning to get better after earlier glitches. 80 looks good driving through berkeley.

8:46 am
whether uber will be suspended. now, a judge ruled that uber did not follow state laws that ensure customers are treated fairly when calling for a ride. and that drivers don't discriminate based on where someone lives or their ethnic background. uber appealed, but the courts levied a higher fine, adding contempt. now uber must pay $7.6 million or suspend services for 30 days. now, the uber spokesperson tells me, quote, while we are disappointed by the decision, we look forward to making our case to the california court of appeals. in the meantime, we will pay the fine and continue to work in good faith with the commission. now, uber contends that it has given the cpuc all of the requested data. the other thing that's happening today for uber is a change in policy for the drivers. the company is relaxing its screening requirements for drivers in california, and it could mean your driver has a criminal record. now, the catch is the applicants have to get their physical any
