6:00 am
the package that's probably fake. mornings on 2 continues. this is ktvu mornings on 2. >> good morning. and thank you for joining us thursday morning, january 21st. i'm pam cook. >> and good morning. i'm dave clark. last check weather and traffic steve paulson says you don't need an umbrella this morning but later. >> tomorrow for sure. >> north bay evening commute affected? >> i think later but it's possible. it's possible. but for everybody tomorrow. we have a break before the next system moves in and that will be more likely tomorrow. santa rosa 98% of normal for the year. san francisco, 110, and san jose, 120%. yes, sir, not bad. but there's more on the way and that will be for the north bay a little later. the system will show up and there's plenty to go. but it's creepy crawling along. there's multiple waves slowing it down. a half inch to 2 inches of rain
6:01 am
looks to be in the forecast for tomorrow. today a lot of cloud cover. and 40s and 50s and temperatures have been coming up. a couple of pieces of energy have to rotate in late friday and saturday. the clouds will be on the move. warm in the south bay. mid-60s for some. >> sal, you want to get to oakland. >> we'll have a live report coming up after the traffic update because macarthur is closed at high street. and alex is going to talk about that. and also has new information about this deadly crash. but first we're going to look at some of the commutes that we have. speaking of oakland if you're trying to get into san francisco, it's been busy. at the bay bridge toll plaza, 20 to 25-minute delay before you make it to the span. no major problems but slowdowns are popping up in some of the usual spots. 880 looks good. 580 also moving well from san
6:02 am
leandro to the lakeshore area. we have been looking also at the south bay here and traffic does look okay if you're driving in the valley. and we're looking at highway 4. and we have slow traffic in antioch and bay point. down to san ramon, the whole drive is looking pretty good. at 6:02, back to the desk. a young man killed overnight in oakland after a violent crash that split his car in half. alex savidge at macarthur boulevard where the wreck is still on the street. i'm sure it's going to be there all day. >> reporter: they're going to try to wrap this up in the next hour or so. that's what we're hearing. a witness told me the impact from the crash sounded like a bomb going off late last night. here's the damage and you can see it behind us. it's incredible to see. this car is split into two
6:03 am
pieces. the driver was thrown from the car and killed instantly. amazingly enough, his passenger who was seat belted in walked away from the high speed crash. you can see the front end of the car split in two. and what we're showing you now is the passenger who survived -- excuse me, we're showing you the driver killed in the crash. according to the passenger, that was 21-year-old jameel brown who lived here in oakland. the passenger was let out of the hospital and made his way to the accident scene this morning and was still in shock over what took place. this was his best friend who lost his life last night. and what happened was another car clipped their car and that caused them to fly into a tree on the side of the road. and the impact there is what split the car into two pieces. now you can see looking down
6:04 am
macarthur boulevard near high street, it's all shut down. and a tow truck is out here so they are beginning the process of cleaning up the debris and getting the car out of the way. and we were told by the oakland police department that the investigation is winding down somewhat. they are hoping to have the road back open, pam, maybe in the next hour or so. and of course, we'll keep everybody updated on mornings on 2. >> looks like they have a lot to clean up out there. >> they do. obviously, there's a huge debris field. the car hit the tree and split into two pieces. the front half and back half wound up 200 feet apart. all of that has to be documented and cleaned up. >> it's incredible. any businesses affected by any of the parts that went flying? >> reporter: it's hard to say. debris flying into store windows or anything like that is a possibility, absolutely given the impact you had here.
6:05 am
from our vantage point because obviously we're kept back here. you can't tell if there's damage done to the store windows. we'll have to get a closer look when they take down the scene. 6:05 is the time. two elderly women are in critical condition in santa rosa hospital after they were hit while walking on the sidewalk and they were hit by a suspected drunk driver. the crash happened at a subdivision in oakmont in santa rosa. an 85-year-old woman suffered life-threatening injuries when she and her 91-year-old friend were hit as they were walking out of a dry cleaning store. the car that hit them was driven by a 77-year-old woman. and she told investigators she was distracted by her dog sitting on her lap. she says she meant to hit the brake and hit the gas pedal instead. >> the first one near the median looked like she had her
6:06 am
head cracked open. and the other like maybe she had been run over. >> ran into both pedestrians and carried them for a distance on the hood until they fell off the car. >> the driver failed a sobriety test and was booked into jail. she also had a prior dui conviction in 2002. the sun comes up and the search resumes for a missing surfer in marin county. the coast guard got a call about a surfer needed cpr. two other surfers were trying to bring the man to the beach when they were hit by a big wave and lost contact with the man. the coast guard, national parks service, and marin county firefighters will resume the search and it's highly likely this will be a recovery effort. a wrongful death lawsuit
6:07 am
fired by the parents of andy lopez will be taken to trial. deputy eric goal house believed the bb gun was a real assault rifle. the deputy was cleared in the case but a federal judge questioned whether deadly force was justified and said a jury should decide. there's a hoverboard warning for you. federal product safety regulators say if you see a state of the certification on the hoverboard packaging, it's probably fake. the issue is with the ul mark. ul provides safety certifications for products sold in the u.s. typically, a ul certification indicates that the product has been tested and it's safe forever you to use. but ul has not tested any hoverboards. one of the branding with singled out is swagway.
6:08 am
it's one of the biggest hoverboard manufacturers. in the meantime, amazon is offering full refunds on any hoverboards sold on their site after several cases of hoverboards catching fire and people taking bad falls. federal regulators are investigating 40 reports of hoverboards smoking or bursting into flames. the fires may be connected to the lithium ion batteries overheating. if you own a hoverboard. keep a fire extinguisher nearby if you're charges that hoverboard. here in the bay area, a hoverboard is blamed far house fire in santa rosa. this one killed the family's two dogs. it happened on east foothill drive on tuesday. the family escaped and the two dogs, a golden doodle and a boston terrier, were killed. the homeowner blames a hoverboard he bought his daughter for christmas.
6:09 am
>> it's like selling kids bombs that will just go off. you never know when i guess. >> at that area was a bookshelf and a hoverboard and the burn patterns were right around the hoverboard. >> the family says they followed all the instructions for the hoverboard. and the fire caused a quarter million dollars damage. there's a proposed will aimed at protecting california drivers from unfair parking tickets. the package will make parking policies fair and affordable for drivers. the california parking bill of rights would prohibit ticketing people who park at broken meters. and it would prohibit valet drivers from taking over metered spots. a few of the proposals already exist in san francisco. bart is making some security changes and adjustments. at 6:30, the changes coming to every single bart car after the
6:10 am
bedly shooting of a passenger. also, the markets open in just about 20 minutes. we'll talk to a financial adviser about the big factors threatening the economy. we are looking at morning commute that's beginning to get busy all over the place. this is a live look at san jose and highway 17. mostly cloudy to cloudy at 6:00 in the morning. not much happening but the breeze is picking up. we'll talk about what's in store when the next rain arrives and the timing on that too.
6:11 am
6:12 am
6:13 am
welcome back to mornings on 2. it's 5:12 and economists and investors and all of us with a 401k we continue to watch and worry about wall street. after another wild day, the dow is on track for the worst january in history. and there are two big factors driving the market, slumping oil prices and the slowing chinese economy. so why should we worry about lower oil prices? we have -- from morgan stanley. certainly the talk of the town. and why should i worry about oil prices? it might cost less to heat my home. this is going to affect jobs, chevron for one. how is our economy affected? >> the energy industry is
6:14 am
obviously affected. we're a big oil producer but at 25 or $28 a barrel, we tend to lay people off. >> and also the company is not going to make as much money. >> exactly. it's the fear factor right now. there's no reason for the oversupply of oil. demand has been increasing nominally from 2014 to 2015. it's projected to increase in terms of our consumption in the united states. it's that we have oversupply and that's because we have single based economies like russia, venezuela, parts of mexico, and saudi arabia who depend on the income from oil. >> and some of those countries are in serious trouble, economic trouble, exactly, which affects the global market. >> and we have to get stability in the market. the market does not like disorder. we like order. >> and how about the banks?
6:15 am
we're looking at wells fargo. and the banks could be caught up in this as well. oil companies might default on loans? >> that's probably not going to happen. the banks are still strong. the u.s. economy is actually very strong. we're increasing the gdp by 2% a year. creating 225,000 jobs. no economy on the planet is doing that. we're a jobs machine. that's a very positive thing. and unemployment is a soft 5%. and the cost of goods for u.s. citizens is low because of the low price of oil. eventually, it has to stop. >> let's talk about the chinese economy. a lot of our companies in silicon valley and the bay area export a lot of products to china. so is this -- how are tech companies going to respond? are we going to see job cuts? >> this is the new normal. the chinese economy was
6:16 am
clipping along at 10% a year building phenomenal cities and now they are going through challenges and change and are starting to do quantitative easing and the economy is projected to increase by 5%. we wish we were increasing by 5%. europe wishes they were increasing by 5%. >> so not as bad as people think. you'll be back in the next hour and we are going to talk about our retirement accounts, our 401ks, maybe what we should do. >> hopefully, good news. >> let's hear some good news. >> we'll see you in an hour. time is 6:16. much of the northeast and the south bracing for a major winter storm now. expected to hit tomorrow. forecasters say winter storm jonas may drop a foot or more of snow in many areas. blizzard and winter storm watches in effect through sunday in several states. authorities say people should be ready for strong winds, a
6:17 am
lot of snow and power outages. >> every single agency is involved. we're watching carefully. we don't want to overreact but it looks like a significant storm event. >> makes me think of my boyhood. >> a smaller storm -- look what happened to traffic. gridlocked and lots of accidents and people stuck in cars for hours. and even president obama's motorcade was caught in a backup. the mayor of d.c. has asked for humvees to get to people if they get cut off during the expected blizzard. >> it does not remind sal and i of our childhood. >> i know, i know. we grew up in california. we want to mention it's national deejay day. and dave clark and i before we had our tv careers, we were
6:18 am
deejays. dave, we were fm video deejays. and now let's go -- i never spoke like that. let's go to the bay bridge toll plaza and the traffic is moving along well until you get to the maze. and then you'll wait 15 minutes. this is a look at 880 in oakland. and the traffic looks okay. and if you're going to the san mateo bridge it doesn't look bad. in contra costa county, highway 4 is slow. and 680 looked good from concord through san ramon. and a little bit of slowing on 880 from hayward to fremont and we're in the beginning stages of the commute. if you use macarthur boulevard or high, there could be delays trying to get onto 580 this morning. 580 is very close to this major intersection. let's go to steve in the
6:19 am
weather center. sal, i remember going to school where there was snow up to here, right, dave? and your hair would freeze in between classes. >> i don't have that experience. >> i know. but if you do, you know what i'm talking about. >> sometimes recess your hair would freeze. and this system -- ice ahead of it for the carolinas. and about 2 feet of snow for washington, d.c. looks like it. and there's the system in d.c. that's the projection. blizzard warnings out for new york city. they are not messing around. now again it's all -- there's projections of a couple inches to a couple feet. somewhere in the middle lies the truth. the carolinas may have an ice storm and that's almost worse. back home. some of the rainfall has been very good. we've had -- december was cold and it was active. we had rain.
6:20 am
and good snow in the sierra. january has been warm and rainy. it's hard to get three months in a row of rain. but end of january, early february we'll be wet and have more coming in. san francisco, 110%. and san jose is 120% of normal. and we'll have more rain late tonight and tomorrow. our system is back here. and it will come in three pieces. the warm air invection will produce light rain. and then another little area of cold air behind that to reinforce the rain late friday to saturday. 40s and 50s. 46 santa rosa and livermore also. 46 palo alto as well. 51 sfo. 50 in calistoga. and everyone is pretty close. 47 wind sore -- windsor. there's areas of patchy fog. 55 arcata. there were 61 a couple hours
6:21 am
ago so they've gone down. there's going to be a decent breeze ahead of that. and parts of the higher elevations in marin county and the east bay. and vallejo, there's an east wind of 23 miles per hour. there are areas where the wind is picking up. the system will be here tonight and tomorrow. see the low forming off here. so it's slowing down a lot and it will eventually get here. cloudy to mostly cloudy and breezy at times. and that could translate into a very warm pattern for the south bay. 60s, upper 50s, 60s. mendocino county, lake county. and then mid-60s around the southern end of the peninsula and the santa clara valley. rain for saturday and sunday. and a break sunday through thursday of next week. >> oh, wow. all week looks good now. >> but as you said. >> around the 29th or 30th. >> i think we'll get rain end of the month and early
6:22 am
february. it's 6:21. don't yet know who will play in the super bowl, right? >> yeah, right. >> but some people are already betting money on it. which team is the early favorite in las vegas. you have to be able to trust the person that's getting the players for you. and i have great faith in trent. >> chip kelly mes the press and what he's doing to hopefully get the 49ers back on top.

6:24 am
6:25 am
time is 6:25. farmers around the state are worried about new water rules. these rules require anyone who diverts water from lakes or rivers to report what they did to the state every year. and the big water diversions have to be measured and reported. the state says any business or farm that takes the water equivalent of what 15 households would use in a year is considered a large diverter. the farmers say this will be expensive and hard to meet. the first ladies say these rules are needed after four years of drought. chip kelly has officially taken over in santa clara. he was introduced at levi's stadium and the first order of
6:26 am
business will be to hire the coaching staff. he was fired after two seasons with the philadelphia eagles. he coached at the university of oregon before that. and he says he's excited to embrace the history of what has been one of the nfl's marquee franchises. >> i talked to joe montana, i talked to ronnie lott, roger craig, dwight clark. and i picked their brains in terms of why they were so successful when they were here and how do we replicate that? >> kelly is the 20th head coach in san francisco 49er history. he's replacing jim tomsula who was fired at the end of the regular season. the buffalo bills just hired the first full-time female member of an nfl coaching staff. he was promoted to the special
6:27 am
teams quality control coach. she was the administrative assistant to the bills assistant coaches last year. and spent the last 12 seasons working for new york jets. some of her duties will include helping to run the special teams at practice. she'll breakdown films and help the coordinator on game days. >> that's great, great, breaking through. federal investigators now here in the bay area following the deadly greyhound bus crash. the surveillance video recovered that could shed light on the case. and san francisco reexamining the use of force policy by the police. the input the san francisco police want to get from the public. we're looking at a morning commute that's pretty normal for most people. at the bay bridge it's backed up for a 15 to 20-minute delay. no major problems. we'll tell you about a problem in oakland that could impede your progress. quiet and the breeze is

6:31 am
let's check with steve. >> coming in later. tonight and tomorrow. today is a lot of cloud cover. and temperatures on the cool side for some. patchy fog and the breeze is picking up and there are a few locations where it's 24 miles per hour. and we're waiting on the system and it won't show up until later. 46degrees and partly cloudy up in beautiful windsor. yesterday's skies stunning. yes, i imagine the sunrise this morning will be nice as well. and kate is up in eureka. the breeze is picking up in eureka and i think it's right armer outside than in the house. southeast breeze in advance of the system. it's on its way and slowing down. and i think it's going to slow down the projection here. and light rain possible in the north bay and generally a lot of cloud cover. 40s and 50s and we'll have rain in the forecast. and cooler air has to spill in
6:32 am
to keep the beet going. cloudy to mostly cloudy and breezy for some on the mild side. rain to the north and warm in the south bay. and mid-60s there. sal, sticking with oakland? >> we'll start in oakland. i want to mention macarthur at high. a very busy intersection. macarthur is closed from the gas station on the corner there down the block all the way down to the auto zone in the area. and there's going to be a big mess at the interchange. if you're trying to get on 580, there's an onramp next to the trailer park there. you should probably think about going another way. we'll give you an update coming up. let's go to live pictures now. and the traffic is moving along okay at the toll plaza. it's backed up for a 15 minute delay. there are no major problems getting onto the bridge. and once you get on the bridge
6:33 am
it looks good. we're looking at 880 in both directions. that looks good and so does 580. 580 doesn't begin to slow until you reach the 980 interchange on the way to the bay bridge. livermore is a different story, beginning to slow already. let's go back to the desk. a deadly police shooting in san francisco continues to be the focus of a debate on the use of force. brian flores is in san francisco to tell us what's happening later today. and last night's very contentious meeting of the police commission. >> it continues to be a very contentious issue. you have community members seeking justice. and on the other side, especially when it came to the meeting last night. you had police officers backing their own. the police want to hear from you. and there are a couple of meetings planned in the next few days. the first meeting is 10:00 this
6:34 am
morning. a board of supervisors committee discussing alternatives to the use of deadly force. and the first in a series of hearings will be held. they are looking to come up with new policy that focuses on ways officers can deescalate a tense confrontation without the use of force. last night about 70 police officers attended the regular meeting of the police commission. they rallied behind the officers involved in the deadly shooting of mario woods last month. the controversial case prompted the investigation into the use of force policy. five officers shot woods after he refused to drop a knife. several officers spoke at the meeting last night. >> we're here to express our dissatisfaction with the san francisco police because we feel that y'all gonna get away with murder. >> it's not right for the drive-
6:35 am
by shootings. it's also not right -- let me finish -- it's also not right for the blacks that are shooting each other. >> mario woods supporters called for the firing of police chief greg suhr. and coming up on mornings on 2, you'll hear more from that contentious meeting from last night. >> brian flores in san francisco, thank you. federal investigators from the national transportation safety board have recovered a surveillance camera from the greyhound because that crashed tuesday morning in south san jose killing two people. it's a dash mounted camera that records a front view of the bus and a view of the driver. eight investigators came to the bay area. and they want to know if it was driver fatigue or something else that caused the bus to crash. the investigators moved the bus from a gilroy tow yard to a location in hollister to give
6:36 am
them more room to inspect the wreckage. >> the vehicle itself and its mechanical condition, human performance -- which we'll look into the driver and the actions leading up to the crash. >> that crash killed two women, injured about 10 other people. most of the injured have since been relationed from the hospital -- been released from the hospital. and yellow bins have been set up as a temporary safety barrier. and permanent guardrails will be installed later. a federal transportation official says nationwide, greyhound buses have been involved in seven deaths. officials inspected almost 1900 greyhound buses over the same two-year period. they vetted 3000 drivers. bart says passenger complaints about decoy security
6:37 am
cameras on bart trains are coming through loud and clear. and now the transit system is making changes. janine de la vega is live in fremont. and it's going to take time and money. bart is scrambling to meet customer demands. >> reporter: for the most part. riders are happy that bart plans on installing working cameras on the trains. but some say they feel tricked because there were decoy cameras and now they're saying how can we trust that the new ones are real? on each of the trains, there is a set of cameras, and officials won't reveal how many are real and how many are fake. but the transit agency is committed to safety and will put a working camera on every train as soon as possible. this comes 10 days after a man was shot and killed on a train at the west oakland bart station. the actual shooting on the
6:38 am
train was not recorded because the cameras inside were decoys. the level of security upset many riders who demanded change. one rider told us he doesn't think real cameras will help. >> i think what would help is having plainclothes officers riding the trains. or hire more bart police. >> reporter: you don't think cameras will make a difference. >> i think it has to be someone physically on there. >> reporter: while officers get on trains four times during their shift, but they can't have officers on all trains at all times. the new fleet will have working cameras that can live stream video. and bart needs to figure out where the money for the cameras will come from and a system for how police are going to monitor all the new cameras. >> thank you, janine. it's going to be an ongoing story for sure. this morning, governor brown will deliver his state of
6:39 am
the state address. he'll lay out his agenda for the upcoming year. it's possible he'll focus on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and transportation and healthcare funding. he has been criticized for not being engaged enough in the two sessions he called to address the issues, governor brown is set to deliver the address at 10 a.m. at the state capitol in sacramento. the deadline to apply under the california health insurance exchange is the end of this month. president obama's plan has critics, and others say it saved their life. anita hayes kylie was diagnosed with inoperable uterine cancer. and it spread to other parts of her body and she had no insurance. she refused to give up. she signed up for covered california which gave her affordable health insurance to get the treatment she needs.
6:40 am
>> there is no price for someone's life. life is priceless. and you don't know it's priceless until you almost lose it. >> if you had insurance before, you found your out of pocket costs going up. >> the deadline for anyone who wanted insurance under covered california is january 31st. justin herman plaza is being turned into super bowl city. it's been transformed for concerts, interactive games and places to get food and drinks. media outlets are also setting up. ktvu will be there all super bowl week. time is 6:40. the high rollers in las vegas think tom brady and the patriots will repeat as the nfl champions. bookies are posting odds for the super bowl. and we don't know who is
