7:00 am
apple one computer at an auction in new york. it debuted in 1976. previous auctions saw computers tell for almost $1 million. it is believed that only 50 of the original macs still exist. tensions run high at berkeley at this council meeting about the controversial police training program called urban shield. we will tell you about the late night decision by the city council. >> doug: and we're in dublin with the first cooling station in the east bay to open. at 8:00. it will be another hot one. and pg&e is worried it will break another record. this is ktvu mornings on 2. >> well, good morning to you. it is wednesday, june 21st. i'm claudine wong, in for gasia mikaelian. >> i know who you are. >> you are used to me coming in, hanging out with you guys.
7:01 am
>> that's right. good morning. i'm dave clark. i know steve paulson. he is right over here. >> hi, claudine. >> hello. good morning. it feels cold out there. >> a little bit today. >> i like it. >> i don't think it will last long. >> uh-oh. >> there is warm air aloft. much bigger fog bank came in. unanimous that it felt cooler than most. full first day of summer. the solstice was last night. we have a bigger fog bank. craig says 78 up in napa. climbing. going to be hot up here. that's true. if you're in the higher elevations, i think i saw 78 at altamont pass and about 75 mount diablo. higher elevations, warm air aloft. it won't take long to translate into a warm to hot pattern for some, at least away from the coast. by the coast, too much fog and a lot cooler on the low. so i think we will get the big
7:02 am
40 degree spread on the temps. fog is retreating but made it into area that's didn't see fog for a while. parts of lake county could easily pop up again, maybe northern and napa county, lake county. delta breeze not there where it should be if you're looking for cooler weather. 50s on the temps or 60s. everybody is cooler here this morning by a couple degrees to 7 degrees in livermore. even napa airport at 5. fairfield at 6 degrees. if it feels cooler this morning, it is. get out and especially joy it while you can. 53 boulder creek. more 50s than 60s around campbell and cupertino and santa clara. that is a big difference from yesterday. there were a lot of 60s. coast and bay, 60s, 70s, 80s. inland, i wanted to take the temps down a bit but the days are too long to get a cooler pattern. if you're inland, sal, it will be hot. coast and bay, not too bad. >> that's good, steve. the weather is not having a major impact on the traffic. we have a couple of items you
7:03 am
should know about. first of all if you're trying to leave half moon bay and get over to interstate 280, there is a serious wreck on 92 at skyline. head-on collision blocking both directions of 92 near upper skyline. traffic is now not getting through, getting out of half moon bay or going towards it. i would avoid using highway 92 at highway -- getting out to half moon bay or the other way around. this is going to take a while. even if they cleared it now magically all of the lanes are going to take a while to unwind. again, a crash locking both direction -- blocking both directions of skyline. slow of traffic in both directions. if you live in half moon bay, i would suggest perhaps using highway 1 flu pacifica getting out of the way that way unless you like to be stuck in slow traffic. let's move to the other side of the bay through danville. clearing up from an accident near sycamore. and 24 is slow through lafayette. 680 is slow from concord to walnut creek. of course highway 4 not to
7:04 am
forget about highway 4. we have a lot of slow traffic over the hill as you drive to concord this morning. let's move along to the bay bridge toll plaza approach from the macarthur maze. not bad. 28 minutes from the carquinez bridge. when you get to the bay bridge, that is backed up for 10 to 15 minutes before you make it on to the span. 7:04ment back to the desk. >> thanks, sal. 7:04 on the clock. as steve said, it is cool in parts of the bay area. expect it to be another hot day in the bay area. pg&e expecting that and expecting people to use a lot of their electricity as they crank back up the air conditioners. >> yeah. there are other ways to keep cool as well. leigh martinez is in dublin now. you have been busy all morning. a cooling center out there will open up in the next hour. good morning, leigh. >> reporter: yes. that's why we moved from livermore to dublin. they're going to open at 8:00. this is the first cooling center in the east bay that will be open this morning. if you swing around, you see the beautiful park that they
7:05 am
have out here. we saw quite a few people exercising. one senior was out on her walker taking a walk around. she said she couldn't talk to us. she didn't have time. she had to get her workout in before it was too hot. she was here at 8:00 and it was too hot. we let her go and do her thing. the cal iso issued the flex alert again, hoping to avoid blackouts by asking people to conserve during the peak demand time between 2:00 and 9:00 p.m. lever more parents yesterday tried to do just that. they left their hot houses and came to the livermore fountain park. but they say complying with recommendations is hard when you have two little ones to care for. and some residents had no power at all. by evening, pg&e said about 12,000 customers lost electricity in the bay area. ay area. >> we used a little bit of ac in one room that cooled a bunch of rooms and a fan. that was effective when we kept the ac at 78.
7:06 am
>> target lost power. wal-mart lost power today. >> reporter: now, california's power grid has added 2,000 mega watts of solar power. but the grid is aging and can get overloaded on extremely hot days. when people use more electricity, many now running air-conditioning units, they are pulling more power through the lines and seems it gets to the point where it can't get any more power through the transmission lines. now, right now it is pretty cool out. but talking to some of the walkers that were out here this morning, they say at 8:00 it was already too hot for them. starting at 8:00, this community center will be the first cooling center to open. so don't use your electricity, use theirs instead. >> yeah. that's a good idea. i know it's funny that we've had enough days that the woman that you tried to talk to was like nope, not going to do it. >> no. >> not going to do it.
7:07 am
>> thank you, leigh. look what the heat is doing to bay area sidewalks. this happens when the concrete gets so hot that it expands and there is not enough room for it so it has to go somewhere and tilts upwards. it creates what looks like a pyramidion the street. bad news for homeowners. california law says homeowners are responsible for maintaining sidewalks on your property. yikes. you can track this heat wave as it intensifies by downloading ktvu's weather app. we will have the latest on ktvu.com and on our social media pages. protesters disrupted a berkeley city council meeting last night about a controversial training program. alex savidge is live at berkeley city hall with more on the push to end berkeley's participation in urban shield. it sounds like even with the vote is up in the air this morning. >> reporter: yeah. we're still trying to sort out exactly what happened with this
7:08 am
vote, whether it will stand. we will get into that in a moment here. but we've heard a lot about urban shield over the last couple of years. it has drawn criticism. urban shield is the annual event that happens every year in the bay area where various police departments come together to train for high-risk situations, things like mass shootings or terror attacks. critics believe this leads to a militarized police force and don't want the berkeley police department taking part. and this was the noisy scene during the city council last night that stretched late into the night. demonstrators took to the stage, holding a stop urban shield banner. this video here was shot by daily cal reporter edward eugene booth. several protesters were detained as the auditorium at long fellow middle school was cleared out. that's where the meeting was
7:09 am
taking place because of its size. the disruption came as the council was voting on whether berkeley police should continue taking part in urban shield. police say it is critical training. but critics say it enables the police department to use military-style tactics that target minority communities. >> we are berkeley and we set a tone and we set a trend. and we should not be held hostage to urban shield. >> we need to train. i mean, the reality is active shooter incidents or acts of terror can happen anyplace. >> reporter: according to reports, the council in the end did vote in favor of the berkeley police department continuing to take part in urban shield for one more year. although a council member did tell ktvu they're not certain that the vote was actually official because of the disruption at last night's meeting. i put in calls and reached out
7:10 am
to some city officials this morning. also i reached out to the berkeley police department for more information on any arrests. we're still waiting to hear back on exactly the number of people that may have been detained or arrested at the meeting and whether the vote last night will in fact stand. and one hour from now, antiurban shield protesters will be staging a demonstration here outside of city hall in berkeley. that's going to get underway at 8:00 this morning. >> okay. we will check back in with you in a bit. thank you, alex. happening today the san francisco police commission reexamines the issue of arming officers with stun guns. they will continue if stun guns are effective devices in ending volatile situations. in the past they studied if they were lethal. san francisco is one of the largest police departments in the country that does not allow officers to carry the stun guns. commissioners tell the chronicle they will not vote on the issue until after several public meetings. and our question of the day is, do you think that san francisco police officers should carry the stun guns?
7:11 am

7:15 am
days worried about her kids. saturday night she said he was calling and texting her in anger, accusing her of an affair. police came by here and told camara to stop harassing his ex. >> again, no crimes had been committed. it was disagreements and arguments between the couple. the girl, the 6-year-old, was contacted by the officer snooze at that point, juilianna was fine. the next day he spent father's day with both children. when mom came to pick them up as scheduled, no one answered. instead a phone conversation. >> the last thing that he said was that he was out of town. >> reporter: out of town. but camara's car was still in the parking space. he rarely drives since getting a dui. and a trace of his phone showed it was inside of his place. deputies knocked but didn't trying to go in. >> there wasn't enough to go in at that particular point. you can't just go inside a house without further

is launching a new gun safety program asked ask or asking saves kids. it encourages parents to ask if there's an unlocked gun where the child plays. during the summertime, as you know, many kids visit homes of friends and neighbors and can be at risked if there is an unlocked gun. 1.7million children nationwide live in a home with a loaded and unlocked gun. and every year, thousands are kids or injured as a result. all right. the time is 7:17. let's take a look at how our roads are faring on this wednesday. how are we looking, sal. >> we're looking okay. but there is the crash on highway 92 that i keep telling you about. they are making progress in clearing it. but there is a rather large backup out of 92 trying to get into half moon bay. this is an accident right near upper skyline. so if you live in half moon bay and you want to get over to interstate 280, i would not
7:18 am
recommend using highway 92 or the other way around really. i would recommend going up there pacifica or down to woodside area and getting on 84 because of this very serious crash. chp is there and waiting for tow trucks. they have to get through the slow traffic. it will be a while. i would not recommend that freeway. out to the east bay we go. 680 finally cleared the accident at sycamore. slow from dublin as you drive through pleasanton. not nearly as bad as yesterday when we had all of the problems. 880 southbound will be slow hayward to union city. contra costa county, usual slowdowns. that is typical. this is a look at the east shore freeway. a 30-minute drive. better today than yesterday. and at the bay bridge toll plaza, we have about a 15- minute delay with no major issues as you drive through. 7:18, let's go back to steve in the weather center. >> all right, sal. thank you. i put this out early this morning. i said it feels cooler to me.

temperatures actually well below where they were 24 hours ago. sfo only one. but that is a low cloud deck. 7 in san jose. had some fog reports up to santa rosa, even out to american canyon had fog reports out there. low clouds will retreat back to the coast. it won't take long to get that to burn back. as least it is much more extensive than yesterday. upper 40s and 50s. the water temps came down a little bit. 55 that vat owe. 57 glenn helen. 50 bodega bay. kelseyville at 65. at this time yesterday they were 70 something. so that is a little cooler for them. really hot. i mean smoking hot town in las vegas. down to phoenix, 117 to maybe 119 again. 50 up in truckee. it has been warm in tahoe and reno. reno hit 104 yesterday, tying an all-time june high on the temperature. fog and low clouds have come
7:21 am
back. 60s, 70s, upper 70s to low 80s. i went 90s to 100s. i didn't want to but i can't ignore it. it is tough to cool off the inland areas this time of year. tomorrow much to the dismay of claudine looks hotter. but after that we start a cooling trend. >> okay. i have one more day in me. >> that's it. >> that's it. >> hang in there. >> one more 104 day. holding you to that, steve. tropical storm cindy could dump a foot of rain in louisiana and florida. thousands of people in new orleans have lost power. the worst may still be ahead. the louisiana national guard sent out a high water rescue vehicle, several of them, and helicopters into flood prone areas. fema already moving aid into the state. and they are one of the hottest toys of the year. but what one watch dog group is saying about the safety of the fidget spinners. try it on before you buy

highway 92 at upper skyline there is a crash. it was a head off on collision. they are doing one-way traffic control. there is a big slowdown on 92 getting out of half moon bay or driving into it because of that crash in upper skyline. i would recommend an alternate route. 92 is a big mess now in and out of half moon bay. let's talk about the southbound commute where we see 101 and 85 will be slow into the west valley. there is a picture of 280 just to show you how slow it is. if you go up to the bay bridge toll plaza, 20 minute delay before you make it on to the span. san francisco, northbound 101 traffic doesn't look bad approaching the 80 split. speaking of 101, let's check out marin county in san rafael. not bad making the turn towards interstate 580. 7:35. back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. there's a major shake-up at san francisco based uber. the company's co-founder and ceo has resigned. allie rasmus joins us live from the news room with what might be behind his sudden
7:36 am
resignation. allie. >> yes. claudine, there are several reports coming in this morning that his resignation came at the request or maybe we should say demand of several investors at uber who yesterday afternoon asked the now former ceo to step down immediately. travis kalanick did, announce being his resignation late last night. a statement he wrote, quote, i love uber more than anything in the world and at this difficult moment in my personal life, i am stepping aside so uber can go back to building rather than be distracted with another fight. uber has faced claims of sexual harassment, bullying, unprofessionalism in the workplace. one of the recommendations in the report was a change in senior leadership. that may be partially what is behind the investor push to oust kalanick. in response this morning, uber's board issued a staying
7:37 am
that kalanick had, quote, always put uber first and his stepping down as chief executive will give the company room to fully embrace the new chapter in uber's future. kalanick helped launch uber. hard to believe it wasn't even ten years that the company didn't exist. since then it has grown into a $70 billion company. kalanick will remain on the board of directors. there is no word who may replace him as ceo. claudine. >> all right. we will have to watch that and see where it goes from here. thanks, allie. uber is still rolling out changes even without a ceo in place. uber is not going to take any of the tip money but the san francisco company will collect ride cancellation fees as well as the waiting time charges. the manager says this is an effort to recast itself as a company with a conscious and heart. over the years the company has

8:30 am
the summer solstice was last night. we've been in a warm pattern for most since about a week ago. there is a big fog bank this morning. however it is getting eroded from north to south. a spin in the atmosphere came through and enhanced the fog a little bit and ushered in cooler temps overnight. i put that out to the facebook observers. what do you think, is it cooler where you are? 160 of you responded? 159 said yes, it is cooler. that includes areas from willis to cloverdale and down to gilroy. west/southwest. not a roaring breeze but there is a little breeze. 50s, 60, 70s. a north breeze coming down behind the system. eventually that will win out. sometimes it sticks and stays on the san mateo coast there. if you have fog, certainly north of the golden gate, that will get chewed up in the next hour or two.
8:31 am
maybe a little respite or a lull for many. and warmer tomorrow. 60s for some. 70s already for others. we are warming up quick. it will be slightly cooler today. then after that, we can finally say we can kick the high out of here. big difference on the temps. want to start on 92 or somewhere else, sal. >> we're starting on the bay bridge this time because there is a motorcycle, accident or stall or something going on westbound just before fremont street in the far left lane. we caught it your our cameras here. there is also a transit bus with a bunch of tow trucks behind it. that left lane is closed off and traffic is beginning to back up on the bridge itself. as a matter of fact, as soon as you get to treasure island, you will notice stop and go traffic. this will put more traffic on the bridge itself and more traffic at the toll plaza as it begins to slow the metering lights down. it is a shame too because we were getting lighter. now if you look at the bay bridge traffic there at the
8:32 am
toll plaza, it is barely moving. pretty soon it will be full and a bigger backup. if you want to use the san mateo bridge, that looks okay heading over to the peninsula. you talked about highway 92 at 35. we had an earlier head-on collision. still cleaning it up. although cars are getting through. very slow out of half moon bay either going in or getting out really on 92. i would avoid it if you can on 92. 8:32. back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. people still are looking for ways to cool off. that means a lot of air conditioners are running at full power around the clock. the agency that operates the power grid has called a flex alert and asked people to cut back on electricity today and tonight. people say they will find a way to help out. >> trying not to run the dishwasher, the washing machine or drier. >> we used a little bit of ac in one room that cooled a bunch of rooms and a fan.
