tv KTVU Mornings on 2 at 7am FOX August 22, 2016 7:00am-9:01am PDT
suspect who gunned down who brothers in a san jose neighborhood. we will tell you what we know about this investigation. that's all ahead on "mornings on 2". >> this is ktvu "mornings on 2". good morning to you. i am claudine wong in for gasia. >> i am dave clark. steve is off today, but rosemary is right over there. >> yes. if you look over my shoulder, we have a little bit of moisture dancing around california this morning. an interesting twist to the day here. we have the clouds outdoors. temperatures not going to change a whole lot, but we are tracking a few showers. take a look at stormtracker 2. again, areas south of us, over monterey light scattered showers. if you look towards the east, the thunderstorms firing off over the sierra yesterday, and even early this morning.
and if you look a little bit closer, we had a few lightning strikes near point reyes earlier this morning. we remain mainly dry, picking up a few sprinkles reported in here. as we cruise through monday, before those clouds clear out of the way we are going to call for that possibility of a few sprinkles. very hit as miss. the temperatures cool at the coast, mild around the bay, and warm inland. we are looking at a little bit of hazy sunshine. could have a little bit of smoke drift our way once again for today. temperature-wise starting out 55 in san francisco, 60 oakland, upper 50s to near 60 degrees livermore and brentwood, and to the north bay 54 in santa rosa. afternoon highs cloudy and cool at the coast. a lot of upper 60s, upper 70s around the bay. as we go inland, even the hotter spots nice. 81 in concord, 86 expected for antioch. temperatures climb tuesday. perhaps peak on wednesday.
the extended forecast coming up in just a little bit. let's check the roadways with sal. hi, sal. good morning, rosemary. we are looking at a commute that has been affected by an earlier crash at the richmond bridge. the backup looks like it's still a little bit slow trying to get to the span. there was a crash at westbound in one of the toll lanes. i want to show you that toll lane that's still closed westbound. so if you get over that one that we're pushing in on here, it is closed. there is damage because of a pickup truck that actually damaged it. look at some of the damage here. this pickup truck is one of the vehicles, it is the vehicle involved. pretty badly damaged. the person inside was seriously injured and taken away. i am looking at that. it's like, wow. probably going pretty fast. hit the toll booth. damaged it. they will have to fix it. give yourself extra time. let's talk about some of the
other commutes now. the bay bridge toll plaza backed up for about a 20 or 25- minute delay before you make it onto the span. and in san jose northbound 280 traffic is looking okay. if i could go back to the maps. southbound 101 at millbrae avenue a motorcycle accident there. we also have an accident in morgan hill. northbound 101 as you approach dunn avenue. traffic is slow up from gilroy to the morgan hill area. now lets go back to the desk. a deadly drive-by shooting kept san jose police busy overnight. this morning they are searching for whoever killed two brothers. ktvu's janine de la vega, you're at the scene. so what do you know now, janine? >> reporter: well, we were able to move a little bit closer to where these two brothers were actually shot. very tragic for this family. it happened right here on 8th street. you can see the bullets also traveled and hit one of the neighbor's cars here.
it shot out the back windshield of this other car and it may have traveled into some of these homes. now, let's go to some video that we shot earlier this morning. neighbors had called 911 just before eight last night when someone opened fire on south 8th street near martha. witnesses told police a car drove by and someone inside fired at two men who were outside. one died at the scene. the other died at the hospital. those two men were brothers and may be from this neighborhood. this brings the total number of homicide this year to 33, which is three more than there were all of last year. >> i think every homicide is a concern to any police department. certainly for us this is a very tragic event. to have our two victims related adds tragedy on top of that. we might receive more help from the public and be able to arrest the people that committed this crime.
>> reporter: police are staying tight-lipped about a suspect description and the type of vehicle involved in the drive- by. they are looking into the possibility this may be gang related. a motive and the identities of the victims have not been released. we are told that one of the brothers was in his late 20s and the other one in his late 30s. we are told by a neighbor that at least one of them is a father. you will hear what the neighbor had to say and what the scene was like last night when he heard up a that rapid gunfire coming up in the next hour of "mornings on 2". >> all right. janine de la vega in san jose. thank you. time now 7:05. it took three hours to repair it but this morning the gas leak has been repaired and the streets in that san jose neighborhood are back open. it happened yesterday and shut down part of story road. it forced people out of homes and businesses in that neighborhood. fire officials say a car broke a pipe on south jackson avenue. it happened early yesterday afternoon. crews say when they arrived
they couldn't find the car's drivers. natural gas was flowing out of the pipe so they evacuated the area and that included ten homes. >> at this point now, now that we don't have a leak, the hazard is significantly reduced. there is a hazard of it igniting. today it's a little bit windy, so that really helps dispercent the gas. a big power outage last night in the east bay. it was out in parts of oakland, castro valley and san leandro for two and a half hours last night. but it was restored to all 12,000 customers affected about 10:30 last night. bart trains were also delayed through san leandro, but bart is running on time again this morning. pg&e says an equipment failure caused that problem.
this morning the naked donald trump statue in san francisco remains in police custody, but that could change sometime this week. the trump statue that showed up in san francisco and across the country last week were created by an anarchist collective group known as in decline. trump's supporters took to social media to complain that the statue shows disrespect to a presidential candidate. supporters say the group is biased because one hasn't turned up of hillary clinton. we spoke with a member of the art collective who says that could happen very soon. >> we are in no way supportive of hillary or her campaign. we are equally as disgusted with her as a politician and feel she is not fit to be president. any more so than donald trump. there is no guarantee we will not be doing a hillary statue in the very near future. >> the group gave us this video showing exactly how they got the statues up. the san francisco department of public works took down the art
late last week because officials say the artist didn't have a permit. the owner of lefty o'doul's in san francisco wants to put the statue on display in his restaurant. we will be talking with the owner later this morning on "the 9" about his plans and the offer he has made to the artist who created the statue. the poll numbers may not be good, but republicans are hoping donald trump is turning a corner now in the race for the white house as he campaigns today in ohio. hillary clinton, meantime, will be in los angeles and facing more questions about the clinton foundation. doug luzader has more now from washington. >> reporter: there are a couple of recent polls that suggest this race may be tightening, but the swing states are another matter. that's why we see donald trump hitting ohio and virginia. he tried to hit a reset button in virginia. he is behind hillary clinton there. still his campaign and party
officials say he is back on track. especially after a high-profile visit to flood-ravaged louisiana trying to draw a contrast with president obama, who was criticized for continuing his vacation during the catastrophe. his new campaign manager suggests this has been a turning point. >> this is the best week i think so far in the trump campaign because he is able to be himself. >> reporter: but the campaign is having to push back on a report that trump is softening on what has been a campaign issue. illegal immigration. his challenges are formidable. he is far behind hillary clinton on fundraising. she is keeping reporters out of fundraisers in martha's vineyard and nantucket over the weekend. and more issues surrounding the family foundation. her campaign manager says the attention is unfair. >> when president bush, the second president bush came into office, people didn't ask questions about his family's
foundation, which was a similar situation, and members of his family remained on the board of their foundation while he was president. >> reporter: the result of this may be that foreign donations may spike for the clinton foundation now that foreign donors realize that they could be cut off if hillary clinton is elected. in washington, doug luzader, fox news. this week the national park service turns 100 years old. in honor of the special day on thursday, they have launched a find your park movement. it urges people to support, connect with, and enjoy the more than 400 national parks. there are special events planned this week including some at yosemite. for more information check out ktvu.com. the details are in web links under the "mornings on 2: the 9" tab. >> now you made me want to find my national park. >> yes. 7:10. oakland public school kids head back to school today. in 20 minutes, the reason some
students may be sent right back home. and it's a video that struck a nerve across the globe. the sad developments about the family of this young boy rescued from the ruins of a building in syria. we are looking at a commute on northbound 101 that does look okay in san jose. we will tell you more about this commute straight ahead. a few changes in the forecast this morning. it includes the possibility of a few light showers. tracking the low clouds, when i expect they will be out of here, and your temperatures for today coming up. comfort food...
you've had a good long run. but your time is over. it's time for something new. something simple. grown right here in california with absolutely no antibiotics ever. food we're comfortable eating. making. serving. this is the new comfort food. and it starts with foster farms simply raised chicken. california grown with no antibiotics ever. let's get comfortable with our food again.
the bombing was the deadliest attack in turkey this year. the president of turkey says evidence points to isis. turkey also blamed isis terrorists for an attack that killed 45 people in june at the airport in istanbul. more tragic news. it involved a 10-year-old brother of a boy we told you about last week who was hurt when his home was hit in an airstrike. i know you remember this video of the stunned five-year-old boy after he was rescued in aleppo. he has come to symbolize the continuing civil war in syria. his brother was hurt in the same airstrike. on saturday opposition act racists said the brother died while being treated at a hospital. human rights activists say an estimated 470 civilians have been killed in aleppo since july. 100 of them are children. a town hall meeting was held last night in san francisco about building trust between the police and the community. it was broadcast live on the
radio station 106 as part of the street soldiers program. the police chief of richmond and emeryville, san francisco, and captain from oakland were a part of the panel as well as community leaders. some of the young people who were there told the officers what they worry about. >> when you are in the community more, you know people, you're able to connect with them better. i think the connection with people will be a lot easier if you have people from your community that you are able to get along with. >> there is a lack of understanding about some of the operations, the day-to-day operations we do, as well as specialized operations of the san francisco police department. now we are on a campaign to give more transparent and make the public understand a little bit more about what we are doing. >> many of the police officers on the panel said their priority is reengaging with the community and building relationships. two solano county sheriff's deputies went above and beyond to help a teenage mother in vallejo. they were called to give her a ride to a homeless shelter but
they realized she didn't have baby supplies for her daughter. they went to target and bought some for her. the sheriff's department posted these photos on facebook. they say not only did the deputies buy the young mother things like a stroller and a car seat, they also bought her some back-to-school clothes. so good for them. >> great story. time is 7:16. let's check in with sal, get you where you need to go. you are watching highway 24 and everything else? >> that's right. highway 24 in the east bay commute in general, dave and claudine. starting off with 24 westbound, not a bad commute here past the lafayette barred station. 680 is okay. you will see some slow traffic as you drive through the area. there have been no major problems though as you are driving through to the caldecott tunnel and beyond that. the traffic is going to be a little bit slow as usual on 680 approaching 242. that's going to be okay. let's go to the bay bridge toll
plaza. you will see that traffic here is going to be all right. you can see traffic is backed up for about -- i'll tell you it's backed up for a 20-minute delay. southbound 101 they cleared an accident much it was a motorcycle crash on the millbrae avenue on-ramp to southbound 101. it caused slow traffic. northbound 101 largely unaffected. it looks like a normal commute up to the airport. at 7:17 let's go to rosemary. all right. we're on the go this monday morning. in addition to the clouds out there, we have a few scattered showers popping up around portions of the valley and into especially the sierra. for us here in the bay it's going to be slim, but it is there. giving you a view here at a wide perspective showing you what is going on with this pattern. we have a system off the coastline right off the coast, san luis obispo. it will remain south of the bay area. notice the circulation around it. we have that counterclockwise motion going on, and it's pulling in some of that
moisture coming in. a system rolling through the pacific northwest. all this combined and just enough lift providing us with thunderstorms over the sierra. even this moving along highway 50 earlier this morning from south lake tahoe into the sierra foothills. a little show for those folks there. here at home we had a few lightning strikes pop up in and around point reyes as well. it happened early on. you can see it in the time lapse there. right now mostly cloudy skies and not a lot going on in the way of rain. we will have just the possibility, maybe a little bit of light drizzle, a hit-or-miss shower or two before it is said and done. here is a look at the futurecast model. clouds in place in addition to the low clouds out there this morning. by noontime or so it begins to pull away and we are partly to mostly clear away from the coast. we are going to be mostly cloudy at the coast for today and partly cloudy to mostly sunny elsewhere. temperatures right now 60 degrees in brentwood. 60 oakland.
53 san rafael. for the peninsula, we have 59sfo. san francisco cloudy and 55 for you. the onshore breeze is blowing thoroughfare field. gusts to 30 miles per hour or so. the cool air continuing to move through. 83 livermore. into the south bay 75 in san jose. around the bay a lot of 70s. upper 60s in oakland. 70 san mateo. 75 degrees for your afternoon high in santa rosa. your extended forecast. temperatures will climb as we get into tuesday. wednesday looks to be the warmest day. notice not too hot. low 90s in the forecast for the inland cities. mid 70s at the bay. 60s at the coast. as we get closer to your bay area weekend temperatures come back down and we are looking at a cooldown in time for saturday and sunday with low 80s in the forecast for our inland cities. mid 70s around the bay. 60s at the coast. >> all right. rosemary, thank you. >> looks great. time now is 7:29. a bizarre attack in san
francisco. police say a man bit a bartender's finger off. the surveillance video they want you to see. also, a cruel prank in australia. four shirtless men caught on video ransacking a school office. up next we will tell you what they did right before that, and they may be hit with thousands of dollars in fines.

it happened as he was trying to chase down some teenagers who he claims stole his car. san jose firefighters say it happened yesterday morning on mclaughlin near malllet drive. when firefighters got there, they sent the five young people in one car to the hospital. the man in the other car refused treatment and was pretty angry when he explained what happened. >> all i know is my car got stolen. we started following the guy. ones he noticed we were following him, he lost control, swerving, driving like a maniac. >> two vehicles. one had one passenger. the other had five occupants. i believe they are all juveniles. >> there is no word on the extent of their injuries. san jose police have now taken over the investigation to try to figure out exactly what happened. well, louisiana residents still cleaning up from last week's historic and deadly flooding that killed 13 people and damaged at least 60,000
homes. this weekend hundreds of volunteers helped baton rouge families empty out their homes before mold and mildew set in. they shoveled out what could not be saved and sorted through clothing and shoes and other things that might be saved. one volunteer says she knows what it's like to lose everything because of a flood. >> when i was in 7th grade we had a tropical storm and my neighborhood flooded. we had three feet of water in the house. i remember doing this whole process. >> the storm dumped more than 20 inches of rain in two days. president obama is due to visit tomorrow to get a firsthand look at that situation. the flooding in louisiana and texas now causing concerns about the possible spread of the zika virus along the gulf coast. according to a top expert at the national institute of allergy and infectious diseases, the u.s. can expect the zika virus to hang around as long as two more years, and the gulf coast states are very
vulnerable. the agency's director says the gulf region is ripe for zika because it is a subtropical or semi-tropical region with the right mosquitoes and the people who have travel-related cases. now a strange story out of australia. police are searching for four men who set three crocodiles loose at a college administration office near darwin and it was all caught on surveillance video. police say the men dumped the six foot long crocodiles through a smashed windows. there is one of them. scary. then they entered the office with their shirts tied around their faces and ransacked the room. wildlife rangers had to be called out. they say the crocodiles were in such bad shape that they will likely have to be put down. >> very concerned for them. they had their mouths tied shut. they are in poor shape.
they haven't seen water for a long time. they are undernourished. >> there you go. you see them dropping one of those crocodiles in. investigators say the crocodiles likely came from a farm because they are protected anyone caught harming them can face fines up to $77,000 or five years in jail. a mississippi man comes across some old papers and finds a historic treasure. >> we get quirky calls all the time, and most of them end up being nothing. >> but this time it's the words of an early president writing just as historic events unfolded right in front of him. 46,000 kids in oakland unified expected to start school today. we will tell you the new rule that came into effect this year that could turn away hundreds later this morning. good morning. we are looking at a commute that is going to be busy if you are driving at the bay bridge toll plaza. i will give you a drive time for this and just noticed something on my screen i need
♪ ♪. >> a little bit of jackson 5 for you on this morning, this monday morning. it's going to be a busy morning in oakland today. yes, the kids are going back to school, as you can see there. this is the discovery academy. in just a few minutes, brian flores is going to tell us why some students may be sent right back home. all right. let's hope that doesn't happen. it is a big story. 7:30 on the dot. i am claudine wong in for gasia mikaelian today. it is monday, august 22. >> good morning. i am dave clark. let's check weather as you wet ready for your day. rosemary is here for steve. still kind of gray outside? >> yeah, for the little ones especially. consider a light jacket because it's cool out there. we have the onshore breeze with us and we even have the possibilities of a few sprinkles. not a big deal. perhaps a little bit of light drizzle and hit or miss sprinkle is going to move out of here as we get into the
afternoon. here is a view of the oakland estuary. dave mentioning all that gray sky once again. the marine layer is in place. we may be a tad cooler for the inland communities today. on the coast we have been cool and cloudy for days over days. 54 in santa rosa right now. 58 in san francisco. oakland 60 to start your day. livermore 57. and san jose 62. the sun is shining in some areas, especially inland. here is a look at stormtracker 2. the showers that we're talking about here firing off over the sierra. we had thunderstorms in the sierra as well as the foothills this morning. a few lightning strikes over point reyes this morning as well. some of this moisture coming from this direction. it's filtering in over the area. it will be with us for the morning hours. you can see again mainly dry with just a few sprinkles ahead. a little bit of a pop-up over novato this morning.
a few hit or miss sprinkles right over the diablo range and over monterey bay a few scattered showers there, as well. on the winds, we have got 18 miles per hour in fairfield. it was gusting a little bit earlier to near 30 miles per hour. so has let up some, but won't go away as we get into the afternoon. the low clouds, the sprinkles, the fog this morning. the second part of the day we have a little bit of smoke drift our way. that hasn't changed a whole lot. hazy sunshine and we will be cool at the coast. we will be warm inland. when i come back i will have a look at the afternoon highs and what you can expect today and tomorrow. let's get on to the highways with sal. good morning. we are looking at a commute at the bay bridge toll plaza where traffic is going to be backed up. it's about a 20-minute delay. but the east bay commute in general is not all that bad. we have been gearing up, this is the first week of school for many of the east bay schools, first day of school, i should say.
traffic is backed up out to the maze. a 20 to 25-minute delay. once you make it into the city, it looks good. this is traffic north and southbound on 880. northbound 880 traffic slows right at about 66 and stays that way. stop-and-go traffic to downtown oakland. let's look at the peninsula now. southbound 101 is a little bit slow heading down to san mateo. no problems getting into redwood city or palo alto, but it is slow this morning as you drive south. northbound 101 near the golf course, there is a crash they are clearing there. today a new schedule for capital corridor amtrak. first time they changed the schedule this significantly since 2006. so check with your schedule so you know what's going on. back to the desk. >> thanks, sal. well, this is the first day of school for one of the bay area's biggest school districts. the oakland school district has 46,000 students, and some of those students may be turned away because they do not have up to date immunizations.
ktvu's brian flores is live in oakland this morning to explain the impact that new vaccination law is having. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning, claudine. it's quiet now, but probably within the next 30 minutes it's going to be picking up. we are talking about the immunization law that came into effect at the beginning of the calendar year. it's definitely having an impact through the state, also here at the oakland unified school district. later this morning the superintendent will be here. i hope to talk with him about how this is having an impact in his school district. we spoke with john sesaki this morning. he said it's unclear how many kids may be turned away because they don't have up to date immunizations. it could be anywhere between 200 to 1,000 kids that could be turned away. this, of course, stems from the new law that came into effect at the beginning of the year which is senate bill 277 that requires all kids to be
vaccinated. the district estimates about 400 kids have personal belief exemptions before the law came into effect. listen now to how those kids will be affected later today. >> 400 students i'm mentioning had personal belief exemptions in place before the beginning of this calendar year. before january of 2016. so if i had a second grader that already had a personal belief exemption in place, that child can continue to attend school. >> reporter: now, the district also says that if the kids have a vast majority of their vaccinations already and have plans to have the rest taken care of in the near future, they will be allowed to attend class today, but on a conditional basis. the district says that they started letting parents know about the vaccination law once it passed last year. this is going to be a transitional period for many parents and kids. san jose has about 36,000 students. it reported having 32 students
that were granted medical exemptions from the state's vaccination requirements. a little bit of contrast there comparing to south bay schools to oakland unified this morning. back to you. >> very interesting. thanks, brian. well, this story inspired our question of the day. it's not about the new law, but rather the penalty for not following it. do you think keeping children out of school because they didn't gets vaccinated in time is fair or too tough. let us know what you think. post a comment on our ktvu facebook page or tweet us with the hashtag #ktvu. time is 7:36. new this morning a federal judge in texas temporarily blocked the obama administration from requiring public schools to let transgender students use the bathroom of their chosen gender identity. now, texas and 12 other states filed a lawsuit after the government issued that requirement back in may. but the judge says states that have chosen to accommodate transgender students can continue to do so.
so for now it appears each school or school district will be able to set its own rules. san francisco police want your help in a bizarre case. they want to find the person who bit off a bartender's finger last month. they just released this surveillance photo of the suspect. now, this happened july 17th outside of a bar on lombard street after 2:00 in the morning. police say a man left the bar, but he tried to get back in as it was about to close. after being told no, police say he tried to climb in through a window and was confronted by the bartender. when the bartender went outside, police say the man attacked him. >> he was beaten pretty bad. constitutions to the face, scratches all over the arms and hands. but at one point the bartender ended upturning on top of the suspect to control him and stop him, and it was at this time when the suspect decided to
take it upon himself to bite his ring finger off. >> now, police say doctors were not able to save the bartender's finger. investigators released surveillance video showing the suspect that night. again, there he is. in one video they say he is play fighting with friends, but in another video he is putting his shirt back on. if you recognize this man you are asked to call san francisco police. destructive wildfires are not just happening in california. new this morning, take a look, firefighters in eastern washington state are battling three separate fires that have burned homes. hundreds of people and their pets had to evacuate near spokane. but just how much was destroyed, that's still being determined. firefighters are focusing on containing the flames. so far the three fires have burned seven square miles. fire officials in monterey county have lifted some evacuation orders. the fire has burned 133 square miles since it began a month
ago. it is still only 60% contained. it may not be fully contained until the end of next month. one firefighter died. three others were hurt battling the flames. the fire was started by an illegal campfire in garrapata state park. fire crews in san bernardino county making progress against the blue cut fire. it is now 89% contained. mandatory evacuation orders have been lifted for the entire burn zone. now, when the fire started on tuesday, 82,000 people were ordered to leave their homes, which left the area open to looters. sheriff's deputies arrested three people who were found in that burn zone. and in lake county, the clayton fire now 95% contained. that fire destroyed 300 buildings, including many homes, and burned almost 4,000 acres. a 40-year-old clearlake man is charged with deliberately starting that fire and several others.
there are harsh words from the crowe of the u.s. olympic committee for ryan lochte, but a newspaper investigation shows there may be a new explanation for the incident lochte first described as a robbery at gunpoint. ryan lochte and the three other swimmers involved in the incident were all home from last night's closing ceremonies started. the head of the u.s. olympic committee is promising to take further action against the swimmers involved. >> they let down our athletes. they let down americans, and they really let down our hosts in rio. >> but now an investigation by "usa today" says a language barrier could be at the heart of the incident. the newspaper says a witness to the gas station encounter in rio has come forward. that man, who speaks both english and portuguese, says the security guard did draw a gun on the swimmers and demanded money. that witness says that the swimmers were under the influence and lochte pulled a sign off the wall.
the man tried to help with the language barrier and he says that the sign was all that was mentioned as the guards demanded the swimmers pay for damage done before they were allowed to leave. well, the u.s. men's basketball team won the final gold medal of the rio games. they beat serbia 96-66. kevin durant had a game high 30 points. his warriors teammate klay thompson had 12. draymond green had 2. the americans haven't lost an olympic basketball game since 2002. the 2016 summer olympics came to an end with the closek ceremonies and rio de janeiro handed the games over to tokyo for 2020. well, there were plenty of fireworks as you saw there. the closing ceremonies at the stadium last night inside japan's prime minister made an
appearance. can you guess who is he dressed as? super mario. he emerged from a green pipe and many thought this was one of the highlights of the finale. >> wow. all right. time is 7:42. the new efforts to build more trust between the police and the community. coming up at 8:00, the town hall meeting last night, it sparked a debate about the future of bay area young people. but first is there an issue in the a's clubhouse? the reports of an altercation involving teammates billy butler and danny valencia. good morning. we are looking at a commute where traffic is going to be busy in many areas in the south bay. we have a couple of different issues. we will tell you more coming up. a bit of unsettled weather outside our door this morning. tracking a few sprinkles overhead. when this is going to clear out and what you can expect for the afternoon coming up. oon co
the oil companies pollute our air. putting their... ...profits ahead of our kids' health. now they're trying to weaken california's clean air laws. i'm tom steyer. we've had a million kids get asthma. we need to send the oil companies
a message. tell your legislator to stand up to the oil companies and protect our clean air laws. don't let the oil companies put their profits... ...ahead of our kids.

of people. more traffic on the roads. out to the bay bridge toll plaza we go. it's not bad considering how it could have been. it's a 15 to 20-minute delay before you make it onto the span. the san mateo bridge, however, is pretty slow heading westbound across from hayward to san mateo. the dumbarton bridge as well. northbound 101 through morgan hill is a big mess. there was a clash at clarita golf course exit. the traffic is terrible. it's normally not this bad. if this is your commute, give yourself plenty of extra time. looking at the rest of the valley, that looks more normal. 280, 85, 101 are slow as would be normally get nothing mountain view, sunnyvale, and cupertino. 7:48. to rosemary. >> hello to, you sal. good morning to you. if you are stepping out this morning, you may want to consider a light jacket. at least for the little ones going out and about getting ready to start school. a look over the east bay where we are waking up with clouds. the clouds widespread this

coming in and out of there if you are headed to that area. officials tell us there are no evacuations, no injuries, no one is displaced. that's good news. still not sure how this all started. we are going to keep monitoring the situation and we will bring you updates as they become available. you look at those pictures and you can see it is a gray day out there, rosemary. any of that burning off by the coast? >> yeah, by the coast. not so much. it's going to be cloudy. it's going to could be cool the entire day. we have a mix of clouds out there in addition to the low clouds and the onshore breeze this morning. mid and high-level clouds streaming from the east. we had thunderstorms over portions of the sierra on sunday and the overnight hours. that upper level flow is coming our way. you can clearly see it over the sierra. if you look closely you can see how the wind bars are moving in this direction. so it slides across the central valley and then moves into the bay area.
even a few lightning strikes being picked up over point reyes about the 4, 5:00 hour. it's been quiet with mostly cloudy skies. just a few blips of green on occasion over areas of the diablo range. a little bit over novato earlier this morning. since then mostly gray with just the possibility of maybe a few sprinkles through the morning hours. fairfield onshore breeze 16 miles per hour. this morning it was sustained at 20, gusting to near 30. it has calmed down some. we will continue with the onshore breeze today. the marine layer in place and our temperatures still unseasonably mild for this time of year. to start the morning 53 novato, 61 in hayward, upper 50s in livermore, and the south bay locations starting out at 62. it's a cool, cloudy, perhaps drizzly day over portions of half moon bay. 57 to start your morning there. as we get into the afternoon temperatures will be cool to mild and warm where you're at, but even areas like antioch 60 degrees right now. you are expected to go to 86
this afternoon. when i come back i will have a look at the afternoon highs. we will take a tour of what you can expect for today and i am tracking a warm-up for tuesday. more on that in just a bit. let's get onto the highways with sal. thank you very much. we are looking at eastshore freeway and the traffic is going to be busy this morning as you drive on the east shore. no major issues. as a matter of fact, the traffic continues to be okay if you are driving through the area. but the drive time is going to be different for you. now, if you are driving from the carquinez bridge to the maze, 38 minutes. the last few weeks it's been more like 30, maybe 28. so we do see a little bit of slowing this week. it's just a little worse than it normally is. this might become the new normal as a lot of schools are now back in session. getting out to the bay bridge toll plaza you will see that has been a nice looking commute. it has improved quite a bit. no major issues. we look at the silicon valley commute. 101, 280 and 85, we can go to the maps here, the traffic is going to be busy on 101.
especially 101 coming up through morgan hill. an earlier accident has messed traffic up. 8:05. back to the desk. >> thanks, sal. a family in the south bay is dealing with tragedy this morning after two brothers were shot to death last night. it happened in a drive-by shooting south of downtown san jose. >> ktvu's janine de la vega joining us live this morning from san jose. janine, i know you just spoke to a family friend. what is he saying? >> reporter: well, this man, he showed up here in tears. he is a co-worker of both of the men who died. the brothers. he told us that the older brother was trying to better his life. he said that he used to be in a gang, and he hired the brothers and they both worked as furniture installers. and he was just completely heartbroken. couldn't believe that the shooting happened here on eighth street. you know, when the shooting happened, it just riddled this neighborhood. you could see this car parked in front of one of the homes
here was shot out, and also the home also received some damage with bullets. police were called here to south eighth and martha after they received 911 calls just before 9 last night. witnesses say a car drove up and someone inside fired multiple shots with what may have been an assault rifle. the two brothers who were standing outside the home were hit. police say one died at the scene. the other was taken to the hospital where he died a short time later. neighbors, they are in shock. we spoke with one man whose car was hit with bullets. >> to me the car is very minimal compared to what happened to the brothers, you know? those are two lives and those are families. children are affected by that. so the car to me is nothing compared to what they are going through. >> reporter: right now police do not have a motive, but they are looking into the possibility this may have been gang related. we don't know how many suspects there are from this case. homicide detectives are following up on leads right now. police say the brothers were in their 20s and 30s, and this
brings a total number of homicides so far this year to 33, which is actually three more than last year's total. mike, back to you. >> all right. janine, thank you for that report. pg&e crews were called to cap a natural gas leak in south san jose yesterday. it started when a vehicle slammed into a gas pipe. that forced people out of homes and businesses in that neighborhood between leeward drive and amador drive. when fire crews arrived they could not find the vehicle's driver, but they found gas flowing out of that pipe. they evacuated that area. it took pg&e about three hours to cap the gas leak. once that happened everyone was allowed to return home. a town hall meeting was held last night in san francisco about building trust between the police and the community. it was broadcast live on radio station 106 kmel as part of the street shoulders program.
police chiefs of richmond and emeryville, san francisco, and a police captain from oakland were part of the panel as well as community leaders. some of the young people there told the officers what they worry about. >> when you are in the community more, you know people, you're able to connect with them better, and i think the connection with people will be a lot easier if you have people from your community, you know, that you are able to get along with. >> there is a lack of understanding about some of the operations, the day-to-day operations we do, as well as some of the specialized operations of the san francisco police department. so now we are on a campaign now to give more transparent information and make the public aware of what we are doing. >> many of the police officers on the panel said this is reengaging with the community and building relationships. two solano sheriff's deputies went above and beyond. they were called to give a teenager mother a ride to a homeless shelter but they realized she didn't have baby supplies for her daughter, so they went to target and bought
them for her. the sheriff's department posted these photos on facebook. not only did the deputies buy the young mother things like a stroller and a car seat, they also bought her back-to-school clothes. the sag a of the naked trump statue that showed up in san francisco and several other cities across the country last week. they were created by an anarchist collective group. trump supporters took to social media to complain that the statue showed disrespect to a presidential nominee. supporters also say the group is biased because one has not turned up of hillary clinton. we spoke with a member of that art collective who says that could happen soon. >> we are not supportive of hillary or her campaign. we are equally disgusted with her as a politician and feel she is not fit to be president. there is no guarantee that we will not be doing a statue of hillary clinton in the future. >> this is how they managed to
get those statues up. the san francisco department of public works took down the art because officials say the artist did not have a permit. the owner of lefty o'doul's in san francisco wants to put the statue on display in his restaurant. we will be talking with the owner on "the 9" about his plans and the offer he made to the artist who created the statue. 8:10. a bizarre incident in san francisco after a man is accused of biting off a bartender's finger. we got some surveillance video that police want you to see that could help catch the alleged attacker. good morning. we can see the traffic is going to be busy as you drive on 880 northbound. can you see the traffic is slow, but we'll take a look at 580, as well, because that is also slow heading over to the lakeshore curve. outside our doors this morning joined by a cool, cloudy condition and a little bit of rain. i'll explain where it's coming from, how long you can expect
washington. >> reporter: there are a couple of recent polls that suggest this race may be tightening, but the swing states are another matter. and that's why we see donald trump hitting both ohio and virginia. donald trump heading to ohio today after trying to hit a reset button in virginia. the state that used to be reliably republican, but he is behind hillary clinton there. still his campaign and party officials say he is back on track especially after a high- profile visit to flood ravaged louisiana, trying to draw a contrast to president obama. his new campaign manager suggests this has been a turning point. >> this is the best week i think so far in the trump campaign mostly because he is able to be himself. >> reporter: the campaign is having to push back on reports that trump is softening on a signature campaign issue. illegal immigration. trump's challenges are formidable. he is far behind hillary clinton on fundraising.
she is keeping reporters out of fundraisers through the weekend. and more issues surrounding her family's foundation, which now says it will stop accepting foreign donations if clinton is elected. her campaign manager says it's unfair. >> the second president bush came into office, they never asked questions about his family's foundation, which was a similar situation. >> reporter: and the result of this may be that foreign donations may spike for the clinton foundation now that foreign donors realize they could be cut off if hillary clinton is elected. well, 20 years ago today president bill clinton signed welfare reform into law. it was the hallmark of his time in office. when he signed the law in 1996, he declared it would end welfare as we knew it. >> from now on our nation's answer to this great social
challenge will no longer be a never-ending cycle of welfare. it will the dignity, power, and ethic of work. >> under welfare reform most recipients are required to participate in work activities for 30 hours a week. the law succeeded in getting people to work, especially during clinton's presidency. let's check in with sal to see how the commute is going to start the week. >> hey, mike, claudine. we are looking at some slow traffic, but i do have a surprise on this first day back to school for a lot of people. it does appear that the toll plaza is empty now. i think i remember what happened last year. we found out a lot of people stayed behind to take their kids to school. people take the day off to do that, the first day of school. that's rather common. so we'll see what happens in the east bay. i think tomorrow everyone's going to be back at it. we have some slow traffic. i don't want to mislead you. westbound 92 out to the high- rise of the san mateo bridge, we will see some slow traffic
here. but yeah, people do it. they take the first day off and drive their kids to school and work from home. kind of an unusual bump for our traffic bump in a good way. northbound 101 still recovering in morgan hill because of an earlier accident. this commute is no picnic anyway, but today because of the crash near the golf drive it was worse than normal. into the valley looks normal on the approaches. as we look at the nimitz freeway, hayward to fremont, it definitely is slow. it's not that bad. we promised you a look at 5870. slow are traffic right off the bat from castro valley getting up into the lakeshore curve. a couple of earlier accidents. so the 580 commute not great this morning from castro valley getting over to the lakeshore curve. add an extra 15 minutes if you can. 8:17. rosemary fill in for steve. >> good morning to you, and happy monday. we do have mostly cloudy skies to start the day. we will be partly cloudy as we
get into the afternoon. this morning a bit of a twist going on. we have a few scattered showers reported over portions of the bay area. you a live are looking into into the east bay where the clouds are beginning to part. we will be left with mostly sunny skies by the second part of the afternoon. in addition to the low clouds, mid and high-level clouds. i will show you where this moisture is coming from. we have a trough sweeping through the pacific northwest. we have a disturbance to the east of us. we have a low that is spinning off the coastline here, and the upper level winds and flow, you can see how that is dragging or pushing a little bit of that moisture in our direction. we will start in the sierra where we had thunderstorms firing off overnight. you can see in the sierra foothills some light shower activity going on. a little bit in the sacramento valley. then you cross into our area, and again if you look at the wind bars coming in this direction easy to understand how that moisture is filtering into our area. a couple of lightning strikes over point reyes this morning. we are mostly cloudy, perhaps a little bit of drizzle out there, but mainly dry.
catching just a little blip over the diablo range. mostly cloudy through the morning hours. getting to noontime it starts to change. we have got at the coast, the peninsula, into the east bay stretching into areas like livermore and the north bay as well as the south bay some cloud cover. the onshore breeze is with us. and the two combined again helping to bring us a very pleasant day. at least inland temperatures are going to be unseasonably mild. here is a look at the coast for the afternoon today. you can see not going to see much sunshine here. haven't in days. but we will be mostly sunny away from the coast. san francisco looks to be partly cloudy. as we get into the afternoon 60s at the coast, 70s around the bay, 80s for some of the hotter locations. 86 antioch. 83 livermore. as we head to the north bay, 75 santa rosa and shifting into the south bay we have 75 for san jose. around the bay very comfortable weather in the forecast. san mateo goes to 70 today. 68 in oakland. if you are going to see the a's play a little bit later, it will be a little bit cooler.
low 60s in the forecast around game time. 63 in san francisco with partly cloudy skies. again the onshore breeze going to be a little cool there. here is a look at the extended forecast. temperatures warming up as we get into tuesday. even better than that on wednesday. but again notice upper 80s, low 90s is about all we see for our inland cities. 70s around the bay. 60s at the coast. and then we begin a cooling trend second part of the weekend. 80 degrees the forecasted high at this point for saturday for our inland communities. 70s around the bay. 60s at the coast. great weather, especially when we consider all those fires that are out over california and trying to get those under control. >> yes, we could use a break from the temperatures for a while. thanks so much, rosemary. >> you're welcome. if you are filling up the gas tank this week, get ready to pay a little more. after nine weeks of falling prices, the cost is rising again. another dime increase may be on the way. the reason? higher oil prices. crude oil spiked 9% last week.
today's national average for a gallon of regular unleaded $2.16. it's more here in the bay area. san francisco it's $2.83. san jose $2.70. and $2.67 in the city of oakland. well, arrests at a record low in california. in 20 minutes, the recent change in the law that researchers say is directly connected. but first, new health threat in louisiana just as the state recovers from deadly flooding.
authorities in turkey say an islamic state suicide bomber as young as 12 years old was behind the weekend attack that killed at least 50 people at a wedding party. a destroyed suicide vest was found at the scene. turkey's president says evidence points to isis. turkey also blamed isis terrorists for an attack that killed 45 people at june in istanbul. the flooding in louisiana and texas is causing concerns of the zika virus. according to a top expert, the u.s. can expect the zika virus to, quote, hang around as long as two more years with the gulf coast states being the most vulnerable. the agency's director says the gulf region is ripe for zika because it has the right mosquitoes and people who have
traveled-related cases. residents in louisiana continue to clean up from last week's historic and deadly flooding that killed 123 people and damaged at least 60,000 homes. this weekend hundreds of volunteers helped families in baton rouge clean out their homes before mold and mildew sets in. they shoveled what could not be saved and sorted through clothes, shoes, and other things that might be okay. one volunteer says she knows what it's like to lose everything because of a flood. >> when i was in seventh grade we had a tropical storm and my neighborhood flooded and we had three feet of water in the house. so i remember doing that just like with my family, doing this whole process. >> the storm system dumped more than 20 inches of rain in a couple of days. president obama is scheduled to visit tomorrow for a firsthand look at the current situation. and now to a strange story out of australia. police are searching for four men who set three crocodiles loose. it was all caught on surveillance video. police say the men dumped the
six foot long crocodiles through a smashed window yesterday and then entered the office with their shirts tied around their faces and ransacked that room. wildlife rangers had to be called out, and they say the crocodiles were in such bad shape this they will likely have to be put down. because they are protected anyone caught harming them could face up to $77,000 fines or five years in jail. are tensions rising in the ranks of the oakland clubhouse? and it's definitely getting busy here as it is the first day of school at oakland unified school district. we will talk about the new vaccine law and the impact that is having here in the district. good morning. we have some nice surprises. look at the bay bridge. seems lighter than usual. we think we know what's going on here. we will tell you more coming up. as we get outdoors this
