7:00 am
good morning. the democratic presidential hopefuls are focused on california. ahead of next month's primary here. we'll tell you where hillary clinton will be making a campaign stop in the bay area later today and the message she has for her opponent, bernie sanders. big traffic trouble on highway 4. an injury accident that sent seven people to the hospital has really injured the commute as well. look at that. it's barely moving coming out of bay point on the way to con court. and nearly two dozen buildings in san francisco, and now the academy of ard is in legal trouble 7:00 this friday morning.
7:01 am
i'm gasia mikaelia >> early happy mother's day to you. >> we will, thank you. >> let's talk about the weather. steve paulson will tell you how to prepare. >> well, it is raining. better opportunity for more general rain than thunderstorms but they are certainly possible again today but probably better opportunities to the north. santa rosea, calistoga north. that line is on the way. it will be here for a couple of hours. most of the morning commute will be fine. lightning strikes into northeast california. there is the line right off here better city, rockland and heading towards sacramento and eventually towards us. that line will clip us to the east bay, peninsula and east bay. by sunday, it will be far now
7:02 am
south and east that it will be on the drier side. the low is a pretty big system for this time of the year. cloudy skies, rain moves in, possible thundershowers. 60s for most of the high. these are below normal tells. highway 4, sal? >> highway 4, it's a shame, steve because we were having a good commute on friday and many commutes are lighter but not highway 4. if you take highway 4 in concord to antioch, this crash is still underway although it looks like they are making preparations to get it out of the way. seven people went to the hospital. the firetruck is still there in the far left lane. and traffic is a mess, really slow coming out of antioch. i'll show you just in case you want to see it for yourself. traffic is barely moving. we do see the bart tracks
7:03 am
there, transit has been moving and that's a decent option for you. look at the slow traffic here that looks terrible. going to take a while for this to unwind, even if they open the lanes up pretty soon. we'll be on top for you. this is a look at the bay bridge toll plaza, moderate. you can look at 880 see traffic. if you look at the map, you can see the red on it. the rest of it is looking good. 580, 880, slowing in hayward but look better than normal. 7:03. back to the desk. >> we'll start with the race for the white house. the presumptive republican nominee, donald trump is not getting the backing of many party leaders. on the democratic side, hillary clinton and bernie sanders are fosing on california.
7:04 am
alex savidge is live where hillary clinton will make a stop here. >> yes. bernie sanders and hillary clinton are getting set for next month's primary. hillary clinton suggested in the past day or so that it's time for sanders to stretch aside. at 4:00, hillary clinton will speak here in oakland. this is being described as anologying event for her campaign. after she finishes up here at the elementary school, she will head to a fundraiser in san francisco tonight. that fundraiser, she will appear alongside california senators dianne feinstein and barbara boxer. meantime, bernie sanders is promising more appearances here in northern california. last saturday, sanders opened his second campaign office in the state in oakland's rock ridge district. while he is pushing ahead here in california, yesterday, during an appearance in l.a., clinton urged her opponent to drop out of the race pointing
7:05 am
out that he is well behind in the delegate count. >> i am nearly 300 pledged delegates ahead of senator sanders. when i was running against then senator obama, he was about 60 or so pledged delegates ahead. a much, much smaller margin than what we see in this race. so i withdrew. i endorsed him. >> on the republican side of things, donald trump appears to have the nomination locked up but he is not getting a whole lot of support from party leaders. among others, republican house speaker paul ryan has refused to endorse trump as the party's nominee. trump fired back at the speaker saying he does not support ryan's agenda. the chairman of the republican party tried to smooth things out, setting up a meeting between trump and ryan that will happen next week. on the democratic side, we are
7:06 am
in for a serious fight as bernie sanders and hillary clinton are gearing to fight for the 300 or so delegates. and clinton is set to make an appearance as a school west of lake merit? >> it is tucked away. i would not imagine it has a huge impact although, possibly, as clinton makes her way here to the school, there could be some street closures. some those rolling street closures that we send to see when we have folks making their way into town. so, it could be that. i think the school is tucked away here. i don't think it should have a huge impact here on traffic necessarily this afternoon. >> alex, thank you. a tweet posted by cinco donald trump on cinco de mayo has generated some controversy.
7:07 am
he posted this. political analyst interpret the move as an attempt by trump to appeal to latino voter who -- voters who may have alienated latinos. >> more latinos are registering to vote this year, specifically to vote against donald trump. he says that could hurt trump in swing states such as florida, colorado, nevada and new mexico. san jose police will stay on alert out in full force over the weekend to prevent extended cinco de mayo celebrations from getting out of hand. last night, festivities kicked off there were some minor side shows and cars doing stunts in the middle of the sint ex.
7:08 am
intersection. police blocked only soft streets. a stretch of east santa clara street is a known problem area during these celebrations. >> in years past, we have seen some vandalism to shops but nothing really, windows broken, tagging, but it's been taken care of. >> san jose brought in their s.w.a.t. team. the gang suppression unit and the traffic division to help control the crowds and the track. police in napa, they were called yesterday to vintage high school after reports of a possible riot. but it turned out to be a demonstration during a cultural celebration. several students posted on social media that the incident began because students had mexican flags out celebrating cinco de mayo. however, the school's principal says that is completely false. he says it start after some students used inappropriate comments and conduct while trying to celebrate their ethnic heritage and that upset some of the other students. no arrests were made. san francisco city attorney
7:09 am
dennis herrera is expected to file a lawsuit against the academy of art university. today's chronicle reports that the academy converted almost two dozen buildings into a real estate empire. the city has imposed several fines against the school for what it calls violations. herrera could announce the lawsuit at a news conference later today time is now 7:09. out of the news this morning, the san jose sharks now headed back home after last night's game which went late into the night and lasted through three overtimes. it ended in a disappointing loss against the nashville predators. the series is now tied up. ktvu fox news janine de la vega is in san jose. what's ahead now? >> reporter: dave, game 5 is tomorrow night here at the shark tank. you can see inside there as
7:10 am
this bus passes there, there is a huge flag there with the shark logo. sharks banners all over downtown. a lot of fans are going to be here rooting for them. >> last night, it was not meant to be. that was the goal that ended the game. mike fibber gave the nashville predators a 4-3 win. the game went into triple overtime and was the longest in the 2016 postseason. joe pavelski's goal was waived off because he made incidental contact with the goalie. >> fees like i'm getting pushed and hammered and i'm just looking for the puck. i know i hit it before the goal line. it's one of those plays. i don't know. that's kind of your hands. the ref skates by and says we have no goal on the ice, you
7:11 am
know. >> now, the series is tied 2-2. game 5 takes place, as i mentioned at the sap center here tomorrow. there are tickets still available. they start at around $79 and go up to 500-dollar. as far as game 6, it's in nashville on monday. steve? >> janine de la vega in san jose, thank you. a massive wildfire burning in canada. we'll have a perspective of just how much land has been burned so far. as far as wild weather here in the east bay, damage caused by lightning on the woman who is recovering after lightning hit her. and we are looking at a morning commute looks like on the frontage road of the east shore freeway. there is a clash clearing out and that is causing some rubber necker value. also backing up that frontage road on 80 westbound to
7:12 am
berkeley. this commute has now suddenly become very slow. cloudy to mostly cloudy skies. a few breaks in the north bay. rain coming back from the sierra. we'll show it to you coming up.
7:13 am
7:14 am
really shook up the nerves of the students and staff at a middle school all happening after 9:00 yesterday morning there were reports of at least two lightning strikes in eastern contra costa county. a man said his house took a direct hit and his sister working on top of her mobile home next door was also hit by lightning. >> she got sapped in the knee or thigh area, knocked her off the trailer. she is in the hospital now.
7:15 am
>> just off the road in o'hara middle school, lightning caused a big boom, sets off fire alarms and affected the phone systems at the school. no damage reported but three kids were evaluated. and san bernardino county is working on a memorial for the victims of the attack. 14 people were killed. victims' relatives and county workers who witnessed the shooting have been meeting talking about plans for a memorial dedicated primarily to those who died and it will recognize survivors and first responders. a man accused of attempted murder is accused of leading police on a very long slow speed chase. it all started, say plays, when a man tried to attack someone with a handgun in los angeles. when police tried to pull him
7:16 am
over, he sped away. the car crashed into the center divide a few times, and his tires were blown by spike strips. the man barricaded himself inside the car and he was eventually arrested. a candidate for the marin county board of supervisors will attempt to swim 13 miles trying to raise awareness of issues affecting the county, specifically traffic. the goal is to finish that swim in about two hours because he says that's the average time that drivers spend in traffic during the peak commute times. he is one of eight candidates vying for a seat that's been held for almost 20 years by steve kinsey. there is nothing friday light about what's happening on highway 4 in the east bay. >> no, there is not, gas ya.
7:17 am
highway 4, gasia and dave, very slow because of an earlier crash that's clearing out. they have one vehicle there left in the center divide. things are moving better now but the damage is done here on highway 4. it is backed up, way back into antioch and it's beginning to unwind a little bit. but if you use highway 4 this morning, and you head out from antioch to concord, you're going to be stuck in a bunch of traffic the only encouraging sign is that things are beginning to move again and it should be a little bit, though, because it unwind. you can see it's going to take a minute. not literally a minute. this is a look at some sort of a crash on the frontage root here in berkeley between university and ashby. people were looking at it. now that it's cleared or being cleared, the track is recovering but 80 westbound has been pretty slow coming in from richmond. so, again, a couple of good commutes that were spoiled by incidents here. if you are driving to the rest
7:18 am
of the east bay, does not look too bad here. i look at the san mateo and dunn barton bridge, for example, and traffic is okay. slowing on 82 as you head over to 101. it's now 7:18. let's go to steve. >> thank you, sal. mostly cloudy skies. a few cloud in the north bay and that's the best area for possible thunderstorms today but there is a line moving right off the sierra towards us. truckey reports a thunderstorm at this hour. just me checked in on my gauge in truckee. an inch quarter of rain. keep pushing the fire season out. that's a good thing. i would say so. we didn't have much rain here. but we did have some rain. around lake county, i saw a couple of report of about 1/3 inch in high elevations fair field brentwood, valk vacaville
7:19 am
, suisun city. you know, here we are in may, not bad. here comes the next band of moisture making a bee line toward us right off the sierra, heavy rain being reported now. marysville, just passed. and it's on the way to eastern son no, napa county. again, the parameters for severe weather looks to be better in the north bay. that's wait it looks to me because you are getting a few breaks. about santa rosa, calistoga north looks to be better, even though you had some yesterday, this is the main focus as that swings in from the sierra nevada, wrapping up around the low which is off southern california and this is going to be the pattern to at least saturday, maybe late saturday, early, early sun day. rain, on and off thunderstorm will continue to develop in the sierra and it's going to be very active up there, maybe 3 1/2 inches now over the next
7:20 am
couple of days. it's going to be a rainy pattern, maybe more thunderstorms with hail up there as well. for us, cloudy, mostly cloudy, rain moves in, possibility of thunderstorms again. this time, though, i would favor the north bay over anywhere else. that's a broad brush and be is in the mix. a lot of fog, quiet here. not much of a breeze. 60s on the temps. these are below normal. today and tomorrow, still the possibility of rain and thunderstorms starting to ease out late saturday. sunday looks better. monday and tuesday will look better. >> that's going to make gasia happy >> and more importantly, gasia's mom. we sat down with the mother of draymond green. >> is there anything that he is afraid of? [ laughter ]. >> look at that mom face. wait until you hear the big secret she told us about that big tough warrior star and his biggest fear. and skate boards on
7:21 am
freeways? up next, the dangerous social media trend that has authorities in southern california on high alert.
7:22 am

7:26 am
denial. it's true. i'm being laid off and i really don't know what i will do. >> a spokesman for uc berkeley told ktvu that the job cuts are in response to stagnant state funding beyond the control of the university. aim campus police may also been affected. the nighttime student escort program is being eliminated and there is now a new stunt. a said board land on the road and continues along the median. this dangerous trend even has its own hashtag, free way challenge. two hunger strikers in san francisco finally talk with mayor ed lee on the phone. up next, how they say he reacted to their demand. we'll tell you why dozens of officers from around the bay

7:29. good morning. pictures just now of that massive fire that is still burning up in canada. some 1600 homes have burned. more than 80,000 people have been evacuated from their homes. many with nothing more than what they could carry out in
7:30 am
their arms. in a moment, brian moor will join us to give us a startling perspective of how much land has burned so far. that is happening in canada, can. and here cal tran has declared an early start to the wildfire season. let's talk about the weather right now. steve paulson is here. >> rain is moving to the east bay. it's on its way now. there are a few breaks in the clouds up in the north bay but a lot of comments i'm getting. eerily quiet. pretty quiet. well, that's sweeping back in and we have a lot of cloud cover over us. look at the air flow coming from east to west. this is coming off the sierra and there are reports of heavy rain, especially around sacramento area. this is going to move back into eastern napa county,solano. some reports of sprinkles, light rained around brentwood. starting to work it way toward
7:31 am
walnut creek and some of this moisture, the leading edge of this band rotating around the low. 50s on the temps. i don't think these will change too much. pop-up, a lot of moisture rotating off of that, making a bee liner making a direct line towards us. cloudy to mostlily cloudy skies. 60s for most temps. where do you want to start, berkeley or highway 4 or both? >> we'll talk about highway 4 because the perk lee thing, fortunately, was not as serious as the highway 4 thing. injury crash at the willow pass grade. it was there for about 40 to 45 minutes and it really took its damage on highway 4, backed it up big time as you drive out from antioch and get out to the highway 4 area. it's getting a little bit better but it's still going to be very slow. if you drive highway 4, as a matter of fact, i didn't call for this in my lineup but if
7:32 am
the guys in the control room could pop up my map real quick, there it is. you can see the road sensors are very slow. now, 680 does not look bad and 680 is looking lighter than usual. part of it is because it's friday and, sometimes, we have light traffic and part of it is because a lot of people are stuck on highway 4. let's go out and take a look at the bay bridge. this is getting lighter. so this is having a pretty light commute. this is a look at the south bay commute now. traffic is going to be busy. if you are driving on 280 northbound, you can see traffic is moving along okay. now, at 7:32, let's go back to the desk. >> sal, we are still following developments in alberta, canada, where wildfires have forced 80,000 people to evacuate. brian flores has been following
7:33 am
the developing situation there. >> reporter: this fire has grown to roughly 330 square miles. to put that into perspective, this fire has roughly burped an area the size from san francisco all the way down to palo alto. again, this fire is only expected to get bigger. the fort mcmurray area of alberta is surrounded by wilderness. this is an area that is oil rich. many of the people who live here work canada's oil field. combine the landscape with high wind, low humidity and above average temperatures, you have what one canadian official calls a continue der tinder box. this fire which may have started from lightning has expanded. >> the rcaf is ready to provide support to the province of
7:34 am
alberta, deliver essential aid to affect regions and transport firefighting personnel and equipment to these regions >> more than 11100 firefighters are on the ground. 145 helicopters and 22 air takers are all battling this wildfire that some say may have been started by lightning. we talked about the need for rain. there is a 40% chance of showers in this area for sat bay but this area needs it at this point because this fire is getting out of control. >> thank you, brian. time now is 7:34. a house fire in san leandro county injured a firefighter. it started at a home on liberty street and spread to an unattached garage. no one was hurt. it's unclear how the firefighter was hurt, but on

7:37 am
we talked to a couple of those officers and we'll try to get video from some of the officers' perspective so we can see what it is like to ride in that amazing ride. the activists calling themselves the frisco side is talking to mayor ed lee but they say that he refused to listen to their demands. they are now more than would weeks into their hunger strike. the mayor told them he stands behind the chief's record. some of the strikers say they have collapsed during the past two weeks as they are only drinking water and coconut milk. time is now 7:37. the gilroy school district is accused of not reporting sexual harassment by one of its teachers. a lawsuit filed by attorney gloria allred claim that gilroy school officials knew that a

7:50 am
suisun. not too bad and there is more on the way coming right off the sierra in the valley now trying to work its way into the east bay, there are reports of rain in brentwood, light rain, sprinkles, heavy rain being reported. best opportunity, at least based on what i'm seeing here, for thunderstorm activity would be in the north bay, there are a few little breaks in the clouds. that band is heading towards us. embedded within that could be some more showers and thundershower activity you can see a line here, lake county, mendocino county, northern sonoma and maybe northern napa. i think that bears watching for later today but the next lane is punching in right now, and there you go, towards discovery bay, brentwood, barkley ranch beginning to rain. this is the system that's sliding in. it will be here for the morning hours, maybe into early afternoon. everything is rotating around the low which is off southern california. i don't think that the temps have budged one degree since i got in here.
7:51 am
rain, heavy rain, thunderstorms yesterday up in the sierra, more rain and thunderstorms again today. and that flow coming off that is going to play under our weather today and also saturday until the low can get far enough east and south and that won't be until probably very early sunday. so cloudy to mostly cloudy. rain moves in. possible thunderstorms. 60s for most. 60s to -- one 70 in the mix there. temperatures will slowly rebound there. won't be until monday. look for below normal temps. sunday should be betterment monday, tuesday. now he's back, mr. sal castenada. i'm sure you were checking all your monitor screens to get updates. >> yes, that's what i was doing. we'll stuck with that story. good morning, everyone. >> there is still a light commute here at the bay bridge. steve just talked about the wet weather. so we might get a little bit lucky if it rains and traffic volume is light because when it
7:52 am

8:46 am
every tragedy, as people know, you know there is often a silver lining and the silver lining was that i got to be a mother all over again to him because when he awoke from his coma, he was like a baby. he could not speak. he could not walk. he could not really even swallow. and, so, instead of approaching him the way that i always had which was like the super fix it mom, he had some learning disabilities, you know, some emotional ups and downs. i was trying to always fix him, fix him, fix him. i always saw as the hafez assad empty. now i have a chance to look at him again, celebrate what he has and not know cuss on what he does not have. >> you have at home for seven months, full-time care. you left the chronicle. as you came back, it sound like you reinvented not only your role as a mother but kind of who you are and how you
8:47 am
envisioned kind of the whole experience. >> yeah, i did, actually. when i went back to the chronicle and when he stepped away from a newsroom -- because, as you know, newsrooms are this strange sub culture where where abnormal stuff becomes normal because everybody is doing the same thing and you work these out hours and you are under constant stress, churning out columns, going to bed at night, hoping that you got it right and there are no big mistakes there. i thought, you know, i have to step back, step back, spend real time with ryan and help him obviously every step of the way and by that point, i had a contract to write a book about this experience called the water giver. and it was a book about my second chance and what i have learned about being a mother -- and be finally -- i became much closer
8:48 am
to the mother that i wanted to be. >> on mother's day, we celebrate all the things that our moms do for us and that we dream about doing as a mother. this experience has been so profound to you, what does it mean for you now? >> the big lesson i have taken away from ryan's accident and from, you know, bag mother now for almost 26 years is that you have to raise the child that you have, not the child that you expected, not the child you may wish you had because we all -- when our little baby is in our arms, for no bad reason, you know, we have these dreams. >> and they are who they are. and i spent so many years trying to turn ryan into sort of the mainstream kid, the kid that would make fee feel
