♪keep on the sunny side ♪always on the sunny side ♪keep on the sunny side of life♪ well, we watched the wildfires burn up and down the state this year. now, fire officials are sounding the alarm about a fire potential one at a bay area icon. experts say it is not a matter of if they fire strikes, but when. >> yeah, they say when they do, the chance for casualties in the fire storm is in fact high. the reason why fire officials are so concerned. >> reporter: this year we watched the fire destroy the town of lower lake, endangering
communities throughout the state. now experts are sounding the alarm that this could be next. >> worse case scenario, people trap and die. unfortunately that's the reality. >> reporter: marin county fire chief jason weber says 80 years of unchecked growth in five years of drought have primed mt. pam to burn. >> that's leaving us with just an incredible fuel load that it is just one spark away from a disaster. >> reporter: weber says that spark is likely to catch on the mountain's dry under pressure and spread quickly. >> this is what will start those trees, homes, the kind of stuff? >> that is exactly it. you have something like this underneath the deck. i mean the house will go up almost instantaneously. >> reporter: people living in this house, they say that they recognize that risk. >> it is the only one here. >> reporter: just like the oakland hills fire in 1991, rugged mountain terrain and scenic winding roads will make getting out during a fire close
to impossible. >> there is no way that anybody could get out in an orderly fashion without chaos, without nightmares, without all of that. so then what do you do? >> reporter: this road is a perfect example of why they are so worried that you can see dry vegetation on both sides of the road, a canopy overhead, the road is so narrow that you can see how tough it could be to get that emergency equipment in and when they are trying to get the evacuees out. >> this will be a nightmare and chaotic. i'm very fearful that a lot of people will lose their lives. >> reporter: marin county sheriff lieutenant regularly drives these narrow winding roads. and they say that emergency officials, they have worked for years to come up with a plan to fight that inevitable fire. >> we've actually had scientific models that we have used for training and just for our own awareness of what we might expect. >> reporter: that model shows their fire is starting at just three acres. 15 minutes later, 12 acres are burning. not even an hour into the fire, 120 acres and four homes that
have burned. the fire grows quickly. and in just eight hours in, 2,200 acres and 502 homes have burned. officials agree that the key to saving lives is getting people out of the area quickly. >> this is the emergency operation center for the county. >> reporter: the emergency services manager, chris riley says that when residents hear an evacuation warning, they need to start packing so that when the order comes, they can go quickly. >> we have a responsibility to organize those evacuations and hopefully conduct them safely. but they have a responsibility too. >> reporter: that means that leaving the moment that word comes down. but many residents living on the mountain, they say that they still don't have a plan on exactly how they are going to get out. >> i never really thought about my own exit route or my own strategy. but i probably just barricade myself in the basement and hope for the best, but i don't know. >> reporter: now experts are saying that there is a lot that residence can do. they are asking for everyone
who lives in the fire zone to register with the county at www.alertmarin.org so fire officials can alert them and let them know when that fire starts. we set up a link on our website under web links so you can get that information immediately when the fire starts. work out your family's escape plan now. if you're trying to work out an escape plan bit time the fire is burning that it will be too late. just from being in that area, the roads were so tight. >> yeah. >> so narrow that it is unbelievable to me and i cannot see how they could get those fire trucks in there and get out. that's the big problem here. >> yeah. if there is any hint of danger or an evacuation, get out right away. don't try to save any lives. >> they say when that fire strikes, they need you to move quickly and out. that equipment could get in. and that is the big balance, right? getting them in to fight that fire and get people out? >> right. >> okay. thank you so much.
well, the magnitude earthquake rattled the east bay overnight striking just before 1:00 this morning east of piedmont. there were no reports of any damage, but a number of people called us here and they said that they felt it in oakland, san leandro, and even over san francisco. all right, you probably noticed it. a bit cooler across the bay area. even cooler in the sierra. take a look at this time lapsed video of the snow in the sierra. we will go to meteorologist rosemary orozco. my question to you, how rare is that snow? here we are on september 13 in the sierra. >> yes, we typically get those early fall type of patterns, but it is still something that will be nice to see early on that we have not seen it in months. yes, many folks, they woke up in that area with just a little bit of in a moment it -- a little bit and it is melting as we speak. let's take a look at the system here that brought snow to the sierra with a little bit of drizzle in our area. although that most of us today,
a little warmer than where we were yesterday. here is a look at storm tracker 2 and the center of circulation that is right in there. you can see that moisture right now, the brunt to have over nevada and still just a little bit here in the sierra. for us here at home, we are partly to mostly clear with mild temperatures. so we will move in just a little bit closer there that you can see those areas over the sierra, still dealing with a little bit of rain over areas like bear valley, south lake tahoe, the pink indicating a rain/snow mix going on there. but this is pushing out. with it we will have drier air in place for the bay area as well as we get into wednesday and the next few days. here is a look at us right here at home where we do have partly to mostly cloudy skies at the coast. inside the bay partly cloudy conditions and we are looking at the winds that will be on shore, but not too bad and not too strong and not as strong as yesterday. but they will be reporting about 10 miles an hour. napa reporting 14. nova doe is reporting eight and the -- novado is reporting about eight. the temperatures will be continuing to cool off as we have a cool evening in stored. but right now afternoon highs look like this.
75 in concord. 73 livermore. low 70s in oakland. 66 in san francisco. to the north bay it will be 71 in santa rosa and to the south bay 73 for san jose. getting into the evening hours, partly cloudy skies with cool conditions. the warming trend will be on the way as we get into wednesday. ville a look at what you can expect -- i'll have a look at what you can expect for the rest of the week coming up. >> all right, thanks, rosemary. we are following breaking news out of antioch. sky fox is over an alleged shooting that took place near the 1400 block of plymouth. a witness on scene says that he sees shell casings on the ground and paramedics standing by. you can see police activity and the police tape there. this is a live shot, but it does also look like it is not necessarily an active situation. people are standing around. we are learning more about what's going on. we'll bring you any updates as they become available and we'll also have the latest online at ktvu.com. tourists certainly love it. residents that live here, not so much. but they would probably love
the streets to see all the contestants. coming up next, the new idea that is now on the table to curve the clogging. and one of these options, they just might be a first for a residential street anywhere in the u.s. at at&t, we believe in access. the opportunity for everyone to explore a digital world. connecting with the things that matter most. and because nothing keeps us more connected than the internet, we've created access from at&t. california households with at least one resident who receives snap or ssi benefits may qualify
for some residents. they claim it is getting worse. brian flores tells us about a meeting planned for tonight to solve a solution. >> reporter: yeah, especially during the weekend. even on the weekdays, the people that live here say they are being evaded. this has been a problem for years, but some say it is really getting out of hand. what the city is doing tonight, they are holding a community open house. officials with the transit authority will be taking suggestions from the public about how best to handle the larger crowds. according to the chronicle, the authorities are considering more options here. one of them includes requiring reservations or selling tickets. another one is charging tolls to both pedestrians and drivers. another is restricting access to the street by closing it to non-residents, using ride share to take people down lombar.
>> it is kind of a destination. that it does not bother me getting around. >> reporter: it is not just the crowds though, one woman who lives on lombard told us off camera that vandalism, trash, and car break-ins are a growing problem along with drones. she describe it is as a constant lawnmower noise especially during the weekend. as we take you back out here this morning, the meeting is scheduled from 6:00 to 7:30 tonight at yick well elementary school off jones street. in san francisco i'm brian flores ktvu fox 2 news. some serious allegations today against developers and san francisco's city government over the sinking millennium tower. the 400-unit luxury high-rise was expected to settle about four to six inches overtime. but has sunk 16 inches continuing to drop. the building is also leaning 15 inches to the northwest. today san francisco supervisor says that he is convinced that developers knew the building
was sinking before selling the first unit. he also said this about the city's potential involvement -- involvement. >> i believe this is a very serious allegation and hopefully that it will come out at the hearings that we'll start holding next thursday at the government audit committee with some level of political interference with the day-to- day duties of the individuals who are charged with making sure that buildings in this seismicically prone area that we live in -- seismically proned area that we live in are not allowed to do their jobs. >> reporter: city engineers were raising concerns about the building as far back as 2009. now developers blame the sinking on the construction of the nearby terminal. >> that is indeed a bold accusation. if true certainly very, very trouble willing. >> yeah. tesla is getting a run for its money. we'll get a firsthand look at latest electric car that could travel more than 200 miles on a
the chevy bolt is giving tesla a run for its money as they announced their 238-mile vehicle that is a bolt. i owe one of those and outside in our parking lot and behind him is a chevy bolt. first of all give us the specs of this car not available yet. when will it be available and what will you get for your $34,000 plus? >> reporter: it will be available later this year, here in california later this year. 238 miles on a single charge, full charge. unprecedented for a vehicle that is twice around $30,000. >> not only is it a nice compact package of a small crossover, but more interior volume than a tesla model s. >> now, the tesla, it is, it
has obviously taken the headlines in terms of electric cars because they were the first to come out with the 300- mile range on theirs. but their mold 3, which is out in 2017, giving us the specific date, that they groining to go -- that they are going to go head to head. is that pretty accurate and your answer to the model 3? >> that we are very proud to bring the first long range of the affordable electric vehicles for consumers here in california and the rest of the country. that when it does go on sale later this year. >> you sold about 100 bolts since 2010. electric cars have not picked up this quickly as a lot of people thought they would. i know that chevy has invested a lot in the electric market. are you confident that overtime your investment will pay off? or is there a concern that you may have gone all in too early?
>> reporter: oh no there is no doubt that this will pay off for us for the long haul. you know you think about the first and second generations that have been out on the marketplace. the sales of the volts are still increasing even as -- for the bolts are still increasing. we think that 200-plus mile range and our studies prove it. customers begin to think about making an electric vehicle their only vehicle in their garage. there's no issues with range when you think about 238 miles. the average person travels about 40 miles a day. there's no issue here if you want it to be your only car. >> how long do you want it to take to get a full charge on the vehicle? >> reporter: several different ways. first of all we would like to promote the dc fast charge networks that are starting to pop up around california and other parts of the country. you can recharge this car 90 miles in 30 minutes of range using fast charging. and now in about using 240 level 2 charging you can recharge it in about nine
hours. so even overnight you can get a full charge on that bolt. >> and again the sticker price, it is $37,000, but you get about a $7,000 federal rebate is that accurate? >> yeah, that is netted out after full tax credits that you're looking around $30,000. so i mean $30,000 for 238 miles of range, no range anxiety, quiet driving, great package, just look at it. we're really excited about it. >> yes. >> was did -- when is it available? >> not only does it look good, but it moves 0-60 in under 10 seconds. it's a great car all the way around. >> all right, if you were fearing range anxiety and looking for an electric car, the chevy bolt is going to be out on the market before tesla's version of it. thanks for your time, kevin, we
appreciate it. >> thank you. welcoming up, reaching the hard to reach and the new approach to help those struggling to afford food to get the food that they will need to fight diabetes. i'll talk live with those offering the service that no one else does here in california. and after feeling a bit like fall over the last couple of days. temperatures are expected to rebound. seasonal weather on the way for their final weekend of summer. i'll have a look at what to expect coming up.
well stanford athletics is promoting football games on its facebook page with this ad. what they weren't expecting is negative backlash to the photos of the students picture. one of the students is wearing a hijab. the facebook page was flooded with negative and many times islamic comments. >> they join us now from washington, d.c. thank you so much for joining us. here you are your picture cheering on the team and you become the target of so many hateful remarks. i'm guessing that you're surprised by that? >> yeah, thank you for having me by the way. yeah, it was pretty surprising. at first i saw some of the comments that i just brushed them off. i mean that this kind of stuff happens on the internee i'm on social media a lot, so i see pretty hateful stuff that are directed towards public figures
usually. and so to see it on an ad, a stanford ad from random people who have no connections to stanford was kind of shocking. >> and was this a photo shoot? did you know you were a part of this or how did it all happen? >> no. the photographer happens at football games all the time taking pictures of the fans, the students, cheering the team on, of course. this picture was taken last october at a football game. i knew that there was obviously a photographer there, i saw them taking pictures, but when the ad ran, i had no idea that it came out until someone tagged me on a post in facebook. >> it was back in march of this year and i interviewed a 13- year-old student in hayward. she wore the hijab to school and other students pulled at it, they called her a terrorist. she was completely disheartened by what happened. you know here she is, she is
going to school. here you r -- here you are cheering on the team. to have those sort of comments is shocking. but how does it make you feel? the biggest feeling is disappointment, knowing that there are people out there that feel so comfortable getting on facebook and saying these type of things especially towards people that they don't know and that none of them don't know who i am. all they say was the picture. the fact they felt totally uncomfortable, that it was just disappointing. >> and you did not shy away from it. you took some of those comments, retweeting it and owned it if you will. what kind of response have you gotten from that comment? >> i got over 8,000 retweets of people just constantly telling me to keep going, keep doing what i'm doing. saying that the picture is beautiful. saying that, you know, we all
need to be fighting islamaphobia. also a lot of people are saying that it is unsurprising especially given the current local climate that seeing all this stuff is disappointing and kind of shocking at first that it is not surprising as well. i'm really grateful for all the positive response especially from my stanford community and all my friends, but that is the overall response. >> the fact though that you did receive these sort of remarks if you had to do it all over again would you still want to participate in this sort of, you know, photo and advertisement? >> absolutely. i was really happy with the advertisement. no matter what, i mean afterwards that i got some people asking my if they would like me to take it down, i told them absolutely not. i loved the image and i wasn't going to back down to some haters on the internet. >> all right, stanford did release a statement that is read in part the outpouring support that this courageous student has received from within the stanford community
and the world has been affirming. stanford university supports freedom of expression, but they will not tolerate hate. nice to know that stanford has your back i assume. >> definitely, definitely. >> all right, thank you so much for joining us. we appreciate you taking the time. >> thank you, thank you very much. very nice weather around the bay area as we just started out with a little bit of drizzle this morning. partly cloudy skies. for the afternoon, those temperatures fell below average once again. here is a live look at mount diablo with a mix of sun and clouds there and cumulus clouds that are popping up around the bay area. it is a little bit like fall out there. a look at santa rosa. and actually that is san francisco. oakland 71, livermore as well as san jose. temperatures came up from four to eight degrees over yesterday. we would have more sunshine to start the day over portions of the central bay and over the north bay and the south bay started out with mostly cloudy skies and the drizzle reported over the south bay all the way
