7:09 am
the company said it does not comment on security matters but instead directed us to police. lawyers for the families of victims from the ghost ship warehouse fire in oakland where 36 people died have made a new claim in the amended filing of the lawsuit. now they allege that an oakland fire department employee entered the warehouse two months before the deadly fire. the worker allegedly saw exposed electrical wiring and recommended that the tenants fix that problem. the new lawsuit also adds the city of oakland, alameda county and the state of california to the list of defendants and alleges those agencies did not do their job to shut down the crowded warehouse and its illegal parties. new this morning, a fire broke out in a home in contra costa county. these are the first pictures of the fire on north jackson way just off of 680. they received an emergency call just about 90 minutes ago. neighbors saw smoke and flames

7:11 am
7:12 am
7:13 am
>> mitch mcconnell the senate majority leader is telling fellow republicans that they may have to reach across the aisle to democrats if they can't salvage the health care bill. he is facing critics as it is not certain whether the party can keep the promise to repeal the affordable care act. mccon sell wants a revised bill by tomorrow or republicans may have to work with democrats. >> if we don't reach an agreement by friday, it is probably the end of a sole party effort for health care. if we don't reach it by friday, then the way forward as obamacare collapses, encourage democrats to work with us to find something better. >> chuck schumer is already challenging the president to invite all 100 senators to come to the blair house to address this big issue. >> let's turn over a new leaf. let's start over. let's abandon more tax breaks
7:14 am
for the rich. let's abandon cuts to medicaid and discuss what the american people are really concerned about. premiums, deductibles, the cost and quality of health care. >> now, according to a university poll released yesterday, almost two in three americans don't like the way that president trump has handled health care reform. and only 16% of those that were polled supported the republican plan. a new analysis shows the number of californians who would be uninsured would mushroom if the senate health care plan were to pass. the urban institute says there are more than 3 million californian that's don't have -- californians that don't have insurance. it would jump to 24% if the bill is approved. the urban institute says california would see a dramatic increase than other states because california was more aggressive to accept federal
7:15 am
money to expand medi-cal when the affordable care act was passed. a new analysis of the senate bill finds that california could lose $30 billion a year by 2027 if it becomes law. the state department of health care services says that's due to reductions in federal medicaid funding. more than 13 million californians use medi-cal. younger people who get insurance through covered california would see out of pocket costs decline but older people could see their costs double. the time is now 7:15. beginning this saturday, the state of california will stop suspending driver's licenses because you didn't pay traffic tickets. governor brown says this does not help the state collect those fines. he also says the punishment really hurts low-income people because without a driver's license, they could lose their job or it wouldn't be able to drive to a job interview. the time is 7:15.
7:16 am
today is slightly better than usual traffic, sal. makes up for what we had yesterday. >> yesterday we had reasons for it. i think yesterday may have had a good day if we didn't have all of the crashes, gasia. i want to let you know that today the commute will be just moderate. 31-minute drive according to the road sensor between the carquinez bridge and the macarthur maze. not a bad drive. slowing in richmond and el cerrito. better in berkeley as you head out to the bay bridge toll plaza. that's about a 25-minute delay. we have crowding on the rams as well. the carpool lanes are moving nicely. this is interstate 880 in oakland. traffic looks okay. southbound 880 begins to slow in hey war. on the san mateo bridge, that traffic will be slow today. today is a get-away day. joining us now is chp officer wakefield to speak about the get away and also enforcement
7:17 am
that chp is doing over the holiday weekend. good morning, sean. >> good morning, sal. how are you doing. >> i'm very well. thank you very much. i think a lot of people are going to be putting the roof rack on and getting the bags packed and getting on the road. what is the best advice that you have for someone who is going to be on the roads this weekend? d? >> well, as we always say for holidays, you're going to need to pack your patience. we are expecting a lot of people to hit the road, especially the common destinations like lake tahoe. if you're heading that direction, packir patience and be ready for a long trip. that being said -- go ahead. >> i was going to say your officers don't take time off. i know it is a maximum enforcement period. they're out there looking for impaired drivers, speeders, people doing unsafe lane changes. sometimes when you stop people you find unexpected things. right? >> yeah. absolutely. and we sent you a photo back in 2015 on a simple traffic stop
7:18 am
over a maximum enforcement period. we found boxes and boxes of fireworks. we never know what we will find on traffic stops. friday through july 4th we will have extra officers out on the road looking for people causing trouble and we will look inside and see what we can find in your cars too. when we find boxes of fireworks, you will be in a load of trouble. >> we are looking at video of one of the traffic enforcement areas, like a safety check point. those will be up for some agencies as well. >> yes. i know a lot of our allied agencies will be doing enforcement over the weekend. we also try to highlight a specific type of enforcement. for the last maximum enforcement period we did seat belts. this one we will do speeding. i brought a radar gun out here with me to show what we do to catch speeders on the road. speed is the number one cause of collisions. we use this device that shoots
7:19 am
laser beams. a lot of people think if you see the cop on the shoulder you can slow down in time and we won't catch you speeding. this is an instant reading. it shoots a laser beam and tells us how fast you're going. even if you have a detector, by the time that thing goes off, we already know how fast you're going. >> just great. i'm being a little sarcastic. it keeps people safe if they're not speeding. the last question that i have for you is over the years have you seen an increase or decrease in the number of people driving drunk or speeding or all kinds of offenses? are people becoming better drives or unfortunately worse drivers? >> you know, i don't think we have any clear trends going on right now. last year during our maximum enforcement period, the chp made 1100dui arrests and we had 25 people killed on the roadways during the same time
7:20 am
period. unfortunately holidays are a dangerous time out on the roads which is why we have extra officers out to patrol. slow down and wear your seat belt. >> always a pleasure, sean. thank you for joining us. >> no problem. >> you heard the man, steve. there will be more, not fewer officers out there this weekend. i'm staying home. there you go. there you go. >> good advice, sal. now that you interviewed him, he has to buy his fellow officers coffee much that's how it works. >> or ice cream. >> yes. or ice cream. we have pretty foggy conditions out there. be careful. some is getting closer to the deck because high pressure is building in. as it does, the base is lowered. it got lower in the last couple of hours. tioga pass, one of the main east-west thoroughfares through yosemite will open this morning. this ties the latest opening going back to 1983. the record was july 1st, 1998.
7:21 am
let's see. we had 1982-83. was that a wet year? yes. and this year. there is a correlation. a lot of snow up there. a lot of snow. 76 in san jose. 79 today. that is two below average. livermore 82. san francisco, 65 today. that is two below average. now, that sonoma county airport runs cooler closer to town. the fog is fanning out more so today over san pablo bay and the south bay as well. 50s on the temps and low 60s. plenty of 40s northward. a few in marin county. san rafael was in there briefly. hillsberg is in there. windsor. i know glenn helen was 47. bodega bay at 48. that is cool. now we're seeing low 50s. west/southwest. not that strong but a component of a delta breeze at the napa
7:22 am
airport. once the fog retreats and it will, high pressure is building in for about today and tomorrow. then a weak system will approach. that will send in slightly cooler temps. if you're far enough away from the coast, upper 70s to 80s. from 73 in berkeley to 93 in brentwood. 85 livermore. 79 san jose. 86 in gilroy. cupertino 81. 60s on the coast. 74 san mateo. 79 woodside and palo alto. a little warmer on friday, gasia. and next weekend slightly cooler. >> thank you. you may have seen safe and sane fireworks on sale for the fourth of july. they're not legal in most cities. we will sit down ask talk to a fire captain about the dos and don'ts when it comes to fireworks safety. do you have an invention that you're hoping to sell? wal-mart may be able to help. they have an open call for
7:23 am
products they may care knee their stores -- carry in their stores.
7:24 am
7:25 am

7:27 am
opposition from antitrust regulators. staples stock up on that news. wal-mart issued an open call to inventors to show off their ideas. 500 people auditioning their products in hope to get shelf space at the 4700 stores. even if they don't land a deal at wal-mart on the shelves, they could benefit from hearing from buyers about their idea. and all 500 have been offered spots on wal-mart online. amazon is extending the prime date to 30 hours this year. in previous years it only ran for 24 hours. on prime day, amazon offers discounts and other deals in an effort to boost the sales during the slower summer months. the deals are only open to shoppers with prime membership that's cost $99 a year. they get a few more people to join in on that promotion.
7:28 am
happy 10th anniversary to the iphone. a lot of people talking about that. i still have my 3g. >> you still have your 3g. >> i don't use it. but i have it in a drawer. you could probably sell that for money if it is in good shape. >> i think sal has the original iphone. he is going to bring it out later on the 9. >> yeah. i forgot to bring in my old one. >> you have the first one. >> the 3g. the first one was the iphone and then the 3g. >> wow. >> it still works. >> i'm sure it does. >> thank you, pam. >> the time is 7:28. new developments in the east bay where a high school student made a controversial election video. up next, the lawsuit his parents are filing against the school and how the community is helping them. and the north bay's newest transit system opens to the public officially today. just a half an hour from now. smart trains will begin running
7:29 am
from sonoma and marin county. we will show you the crowd that is here to get on the first train. coming up.
7:30 am
7:31 am
7:32 am
>> record 95 in 1934. you can see there's really not much going over the hills. it is taking the path south over the bay and then also northward over the bay. and then filling in completely almost along the coast. 50s, 60s. brentwood says 62. 52 in city for one observation there. low 60s pittsburgh and brentwood. danville, blackhawk, oakland, all within a couple degrees of each other. westerly breeze in place.
7:33 am
a west/southwest. it picks up once the fog burns off. so that means upper 80s to low 90s. 60s and 70s closer to the bay. 7:33. sal, what do you want to get to right away? anything on your screens there. >> i'm looking at the macarthur maze and i'm looking at the patterns that we see for today's commute. it seems a little better but not completely. 30-minute drive much that's a respectful commute from the carquinez bridge to the macarthur maze. at the bay bridge, a 25-minute delay before you make it on to the span. no major accidents. that is good. we're going to expect a get- away commute later today. aaa recommends getting away today as opposed to tomorrow. there will be traffic but not as bad as tomorrow. saturday is also recommended because by then a lot of people have already made it. tuesday is kind of a difficult day to get back after the 4th.
7:34 am
this is a look at westbound 92 heading out to the highrise. no major issues there. if you look at 880, patchy slow traffic between hayward and fremont. the bay area's newest transit system is offering a get acquainted ride today. ktvu's alex savidge is live at the station where the train leaves, alex, in half an hour. alex. >> reporter: yeah. we are counting down to that first ride. sal, good morning to you. check out the crowd here on the platform at the station this morning. it has really grown over the past hour. you can see dozens and dozens of people eager to take this first ride on the smart train. by the way, they won't pay a thing today. the ride is free. that is because technically the smart train is still in the testing phase. folks will hop on the train today at 8:00 this morning. just a half an hour from now. it will take folks down to the
7:35 am
marin station. we talked to folks excited to take part in the first trip. >> i'm 25 and we haven't had a train here since i was little. you know, i saw growing up a few trains. but then they stopped. >> reporter: southbound trains will be leaving every two hours today. and then northbound trains will be taking off in the marin civic center station starting at 4:00 this afternoon to bring people home for the round trip. this is part of a plan to give the public a preview of the north bay's newest transportation system. the smart train line runs 50 miles between the sonoma county airport down to the downtown san rafael transit center. today i talked to the mayor of ronard park and he says this inaugural ride has been a long time come. >> this was a huge moment. we all have gone through
7:36 am
getting the sales tax measure passed, getting the trains here. a huge amount of work to get in infrastructure in place. now we're standing on the, quote/unquote, infrastructure. >> reporter: the smart train is still waiting for the green light from the federal government to begin full- fledged commuter service. i was just told by a smart train representative that the commuter service likely will be deemed on labor day. in the meantime, passengers will be able to test out the new trains for free or at a reduced price. these low emission diesel engine smart trains can hit a top speed of 79 miles per hour. in a lot of cases, that is a lot faster than you will be going if you're traveling on highway 101. especially during the commute hours. i'm sure that many of the people here can attest to that. there will be the first train that folks will be hopping on. it will pull into the station any minute now. folks eagerly awaiting the
7:37 am
first ride on the smart train taking folks from ronard park to the marin civic center station. >> thank you, alex savidge. if you want to take one of the free rides, here is the schedule. as alex told you, the first train leaves at 8:00 with other trains departing at 10:00 this morning as well as noon and 2:00 this afternoon. and at the marin civic center, the trains will depart at 4:00, 6:00 and 8:00 p.m. the parents of an east bay high school student have raised $25,000 to fund a lawsuit against the school district. this legal action comes after a controversial campaign video for the office of school president. they say their son was bullied because of a campaign video they say depicted torture and the use of firearms. the student said it was a parody of a spy movie.
7:38 am
school administrators stripped him of his position of junior class president. now the parents want to sue for a violation of free speech rights. the time is 7:38. the bay area's first safe and sane fireworks stands are open in dublin, ready for the fourth of july holiday. most cities have banned all fireworks. dublin is among the few cities where safe and sane fireworks are legal. they have designated areas where fireworks can be set off on the fourth of july. >> nothing that launches or explodes. these are all considered safe and sane. so yes, if you touch them, they will burn you. but nothing that could cause fires. >> now, you have to be at least 18 years old to buy these fireworks. other bay area cities where safe and sane fireworks are legal include pacifica, gilroy, newark and union city. >> joining us this morning in
7:39 am
city is george lane of the fire protection system of contra costa county. >> yes. >> you don't like the title safe and sane. you don't differentiate. >> all fireworks are dangerous. all fireworks burn quickly or have explosive elements. they can cause serious injury and have numerous fires that are associated with their use. they can land on structures. they can land in grandee field -- grassy fields. they cause us to have the resources stretched out on the fourth. they are a concern for us in the communities and we are concerned with even safe and sane fireworks. >> you have seen the dangers whether in person or in video. how dangerous can it be? and why is it so tough to get the message out to people to be really careful. >> i understand and we in the fire service understand that there is a long history of use of fireworks in the country. it is in our national anthem.
7:40 am
we like to recognize our history and our recreation with these types of devices. but we encourage the public to go to the licensed events that are in many cities. we have 7 events in our jurisdiction coming up on the fourth or this weekend. they are licensed. a wonderful time for the family. we encourage people to enjoy those events. >> a lot of cities don't have the big fireworks celebration. when the big civic celebrations get shut down, do you see more of the illegal activity popping up. >> i think it is safe to say for several weeks before and after the fourth, our communities -- and this is throughout the bay area -- have fireworks going off at all hours of the day and night. i don't think it is associated with whether civic events are held or not. >> okay. >> another big concern is your ranks, you're stretched thin. that is a big issue for you as
7:41 am
well. >> yeah. on the fourth of july where we would dispatch one unit going to one call, the dispatch goes numerous incidents per dispatch. so one engine will be spanned responding to one, two, three, four, five calls at a time. when you have each of your resources extended that much, it is difficult to respond to medical emergencies, structure fires. everybody is already stretched out. so we really encourage the public not to use illegal fireworks. and in contra costa county, all fireworks are illegal. >> they're legal in the city of dublin. if my friend who lives in dublin buys them legally and brings them to my mouse in, say, oakland where they're not legal, is it legal to have them. >> it is illegal to have, use or allow the use of those fireworks. and people are responsible for any damage that's can occur. if there's a fire that results and it results in worst case scenarios with aircraft being
7:42 am
deployed, with multiple structures being l the people who allowed the fireworks to be use can be held criminally responsible for those fires. >> the weeks before and after the fourth of july as the result of fireworks. >> that is correct. they are extremely dangerous. cannot emphasize that point enough. for the most part they are explosive devices. the professional fireworks are very, very dangerous. and you have those in a personal use environment, that is dangerous and highly illegal. >> i take it you will be celebrating the fourth on the job. happy fourth of july. >> thank you. >> our pleasure. get ready for tougher security at airports. coming up at 8:00, more on what you can expect when president trump's travel ban officially takes effect today. and it changed the world of
7:43 am
cell phones. now so many of us can't live without it. the big milestone today for the iphone. and if you are, you know, hitting the roads soon, i would say that you should expect a little slowing here on 24 through lafayette and on 680 approaching the walnut creek interchange. some low clouds and some fog. in fact we haven't had fog the last couple of days. high pressure is building in, kind of sending that fog lower. we will talk about that and what is in store for the next few days. celebrate the summer of heroes, only at
7:44 am
7:45 am
disneyland resort. hero up! >> welcome back to mornings on 2. it is 7:45. look at your screen. firefighters in arizona battling three stubborn wildfires. the biggest one has burned over 39,000 acres north of phoenix. thousands have been forced to
7:46 am
evacuate in several small communities. the fire was caused by a lightning strike on june 7th. it is 45% contained right now. but yet another arizona wildfire burning in the prescott national forest has grown to more than 20,000 acres. and then there's a third one that has burned 1600 acres. all of those fires are under investigation. stigation. and a fire burning near camp pendleton in san diego county keeps growing. it started last night near a campground and grew to 700 acres. the fire is headed away from the marine base and headed towards san clemente now. the firefighters are making helicopter water drops. they're protecting several neighborhoods that could be in danger if the fire picks up. these days it is hard to imagine a world, even a day without your iphone. it has only been around for ten years. apple's first iphone hit the stores ten years ago today. it had no flash for the camera.
7:47 am
>> what. >> it could not be used to record video. nor could you send a picture as a text message. the phone quickly evolved and of course has changed the world. in fact apple has sold more than one billion iphones. tom was there when the original iphone was unveiled at mac world in january of 2007 by the late steve jobs. coming up on the 9, tom will join us and talk more about that day and his memories of how revolutionary people thought that iphone was. the question of the day is following the introduction of th iphone. how long did it take you to get a smart phone? let us know what you think. vote on the ktvu twitter page by using your iphone or access ktvu.com on your smart phone. also leave comments for us on facebook and twitter. i love to look back and think it was just ten years. >> i was one of the last. >> really.
7:48 am

7:49 am
today is a big get-away day. not as bad as tomorrow but it will be a get-away day. don't be surprised by the traffic this afternoon getting out of the bay area. this is a look at westbound 92. that is moderately heavy. we've also had traffic that is okay getting across the span. we do look at traffic around the bay area that is going to be okay. 84 near -- highway 1 near 84, there was a crash reported. we will tell you more about that next time. 7:49. let's bring in steve with today's forecast. >> sal, i think everybody has cracked that phone one time or another. >> now they make, you know, cases that -- >> i know. i know. thank you, sir. let's get to it. we have a nice little pattern. a little cooler near the coast. warm erin land as the fog burns off. each day today and tomorrow will be warmer closer to the deck. this coolness feels great.
7:50 am
thank you, keith jackson. compared to the health that we had. how is the fourth shaping up? it looks average. near 90 degrees inland. a little cooler if anything. maybe. the fog and low clouds still greeting us here. it will be warmer. some low 90s and mid-80s. i'm splitting the difference. but 60s and 70s coast and bay. santa rosa 81. today 83. san francisco only 61 yesterday. 65 today. livermore 81 to 85. they should be 87. san jose downtown to 79. east san jose will probably be 82, 83. 81/57 is average. so close on both. 102 night 1934 the record high. and 42 way back in 1893 the record low. you can see the pattern. it is going over the bay. over san pablo bay and down south towards san jose. not a strong push east. it can't clear the hills. 50s and 60s. a cool morning for some,
7:51 am
especially parts of the peninsula and even up to the north of marin county. a few 40s now more 50s. palo alto 59. 55 atherton. hillsborough cooler at 53. belmont, 56. west/southwest. same forenapa airport. still an on shore breeze that translates into a typical pattern here. half moon bay came down as well. that helps the overnight lows along the coast. 57 ukiah. phoenix yesterday only be made it to 108. palm springs at 81. 63 in san diego. low clouds and fog will burn off and then high pressure starts to build right there. that will give inland temps a warmer pattern. this time of year it doesn't take much.
7:52 am
warmest temps out towards brentwood and oakland. if you're near the water, 79. 86 in gilroy. santa cruz at 75. 60s on the coast. 74 san mateo to 77 in mountain view. tomorrow looks a little warmer. then we ease up and a nice weekend going into the fourth, dave. >> i like what you're doing, steve. >> i hope so. >> thank you. the time is 7:52. you and i may love fireworks. for pets, it is terrifying. coming up in the 8:00 hour, what you can do to keep your pet calm during the fourth of july. plus the love of one community that rallies around a young man who walks three miles every day to and from work.

8:01 am
it will be warmer inland. each day we have bumped up slightly. 54 and overcast this morning in beautiful inverness. hanging out there, weather for the birds, not bad. not bad. warm air aloft is taking the fog bank down a little bit. you have it burning off sooner as well. doesn't make a push like a couple days ago. it was 3500 feet and flew over the hills. this is working its way over the bay a little bit. 55 berkeley to 60 in fairfield. santa rosa 52. low 50s up in the santa cruz mountains, including scotts valley and boulder creek. cupertino already 62 degrees. west/southwest at 24. that is impressive. the delta breeze is still there. tough to warm up. inland temps are bumping up a
8:02 am
little bit. farther inland low 90s. 8:01, sal. still the same on the traffic. >> yeah. i always make sure that i'm not surprised by anything. it looks about the same. we're looking at 80 westbound coming around the berkeley curve to the bay bridge toll plaza. the traffic is a little slow. not bad. it is taking 30 minutes to get to this point from the carquinez bridge. no trouble on the bridge and driving into san francisco. have a live look at the bridge from the toll plaza. it is backed up for about 25 minutes. no problems on the upper deck of the bridge getting into san francisco. west of treasure island of course. this is a look at interstate 880 northbound. if you're driving past the coliseum, it is beginning to slow down as you drive up past hyde street. i want to show you highway 24. slowing in lafayette and 680.
8:03 am
driving from pleasant hill road to the 24 interchange. this is san mateo bridge heading out to 91. it looks okay. i mentioned northbound highway 1 at 84, there is a crash that is temporarily blocking lanes. could see a slowdown there. the rest of the peninsula looks average. the modified version of president trump's partial travel ban takes effect this evening. >> christien kafton has the impact that we could see in san francisco. >> reporter: the attorneys are on stand by, waiting to hear from travelers as they are coming through customs, if they are detained by customs or held up by customs. the attorneys are here to monitor the situation throughout the day. the trump administration gave itself until 5:00 to implement the ban on the six muslim
8:04 am
majority countries. now we are getting information how the rollout might like. following the guidelines of the supreme court, refugees already vetted and scheduled to fly to the u.s. through july 6th will be allowed in. the administration also clarified who qualifies as a family member for the purposes of the executive order, allowing people from the six countries to apply for a visa. they include parents, spouses, siblings, assault sons and daughters or sons and daughters in law. fiance and grandparents are not considered close enough relationships. the supreme court's decision has raised more questions than answers at this point. >> like we saw last time, there was mass confusion throughout the community how the ban would be implemented. the supreme court's decision on monday only added to that confusion.
8:05 am
there are many terms in there that are not defined. that will create chaos here at the airport. >> now, the airport was at the center of a series of protests back in january. we are on hand to see if they develop again today. coming back to the live camera, you can see a sign that reads free legal services for those who come in. the attorneys are trying to speak with people as they come in through customers. now, they say what they're hoping for is to actually hear from people who have come through who witnessed something unusual. if they see other travelers being detained, being pulled aside by border patrol. that would be a tipoff. once they are detained and going through a secondary inspection coming through customs, it is very, very difficult to communicate with those people. a critical element is talking to people as they get into the u.s. and hoping to hear from family members who haven't either shown up or been
8:06 am
processed through customs or fellow travelers. >> thank you. separate from the travel ban, the trump administration is implementing a new set of rules for all commercial flights coming into the u.s. the homeland security department cites the ongoing effort of terrorists to target airplanes. it will affect some 280 airports in more than 1 had not countries. enhanced screening of passer judges and mobile devices, including laptops, along with heightened security standards for planes and airports. >> terrorists want to bring down aircraft that undermine our way of life. and it works, which is why they still -- still see it as a crown jewel. >> the machine gives tsa agents a better look at what is inside of a care-on bag. jetblue is testing facial
8:07 am
recognition technology on flights headed to aruba. president trump met with victims of crimes by illegal immigrants. kate's law would impose minimum sentences on criminal immigrants that reenter the united states after being deported. this is named after kate steinly who was killed in san francisco while walking with her father. her alleged killer was deported five times prior to the shooting. the house will vote on a bill to strip sanctuary cities of certain funding. more information about the deadly shooting at the ups center in san francisco. investigators are trying to figure out how the gunman got inside of the building with two guns and a box of ammunition. he passed through a metal detector and set off the alarms and red lights but was still
8:08 am
let in. he killed two coworkers and wounded two others before taking his life. a neighbor of apple co- founder steve wozniak is in the hospital today. she saw the greeter and she knew something was wrong. she says he looked terrifying and then other people in the store started screaming and running for the exit. she didn't see any security guards around and was worried it was a terror attack. she ran for the door but was thrown out of the way. >> the impact was so great that they probably just air lifted down and my head was bleeding really bad. >> she broke her pelvis, has scrapes throughout our her body and needed four staples to close a gash in her head. the foreman stole a number of items and took off in a black charger. investigators are working with law enforcement agencies
8:09 am
throughout the bay area to see if this robbery is connected to other apple store crash and grabs. we reached out to apple. the company does not comment on security matters. well, i know i'm staying put. if you're planning to hit the road for the long holiday weekend, get ready to have a lot of company out there. the crackdown by highway patrol this year. plus a push for a revised version of the health care bill. what it could mean.

8:12 am
ends saturday. >> senate majority leader mitch mcconnell is telling fellow republicans they may have to reach across the aisle to democrats if they computer reach an agreement on the health care bill. it is not certain whether the party can keep its promise to repeal and replace the affordable care act. mcconnell says he wants a revised bill by tomorrow or republicans may have to work with the democrats. . >> if we don't reach an agreement by friday, it is probably the end of a sole party effort for health care. if we don't reach it by friday, then the way forward is as obamacare collapses, challenge democrats to work wuss to find something better. >> chuck schumer is already challenging the president to invite all 100 senators to the blair house to address this issue. >> let's turn over a new leaf. let's start over.
8:13 am
let's abandon more tax breaks for the rich. let's abandon cuts to medicaid. and discuss what the american people are really concerned about, premiums, deductibles, the cost and quality of health care. >> according to a poll released yesterday, nearly two in three americans don't like the way that president trump has handled health care reform. just 16% of the people polled supported the gop plan. a new analysis shows the number of californians who would be uninsured would vastly increase if the senate health care plan passed. the urban institute says there are 3 million californiaons without insurance. that is 9% of the total population. that would jump to nearly 7 and a half million or 21% of all californians without insurance by 2022 if the bill is approved much the urban institute says california would see a dramatic
8:14 am
increase in the number of insured than other cases because we were more aggressive to accept federal money to expand medi-cal when the bill was passed. california could lose $30 billion a year by the year 2027 if it becomes law. the department of health care services says that is due to reductions in medical funding. the study says younger people who get insurance through covered california would see out of pocket costs decline somewhat. but the state says older people could see their costs double. planned parenthood plans to shut down three bay area locations tomorrow. the centers are in richmond, pittsburgh and vacaville. planned parenthood officials say it is due to the organization having trouble collecting became for services from medi-cal patients. it is also closing ten more facilities in other states as well. all right. time to check in with sal and that commute. i tell you, i was nearly at the
8:15 am
limit coming down the east shore past university avenue. >> that is rare for you. >> yeah. it is nice to see it open up. yes. you will see more of that. you will see people going the other way for the get-away commute coming up soon. we will start in the east bay and look at highway 24, which is beginning to get better but slow from lafayette and the walnut creek interchange. if we look at this area closely, there are a couple of things, 680 at sycamore valley road, there is a crash there and slow traffic. no injuries but the fire rolled out there as a precaution. highway 4 not having a good day. slow through pittsburgh to bay point and concord. as we look at the bridge from the macarthur maze, that traffic looks okay. you have to wait before you get on to the span. remember, i always ask you to look at this ramp right there. if that gets lighter, you know that things will get lighter.
8:16 am
this is 280 in san jose. it looks okay. highway 52, mike marker 11. a four pole was hit by a big rig. they have to wait for the lines to get off of the road. 152 is quickly backing up out of bill roadway. let's bring in steve with today's weather. >> thank you, sal. high pressure building in. a couple days ago we had it up around 3,000 feet. it is lower than that. some of the bases down to a thousand or lower. areas of fog, it will be warmer inland. not really so much around the bay. santa rosa 81 yesterday. 83 today. san jose 76 to 79. most of these are slightly below average to near average. there were cooler lows than that. i noticed 50 or 51 for some the city. 95 in 1934 the record.
8:17 am
you can see the fog starting to retreat. it is solid out on the coast. temperatures held in check. 50s and 60s. most locations are running cooler compared to 24 hours ago. at one point san jose was 8 degrees cooler. now it is only three. now it is low to mid-50s for some. glenn helen was 47. now 53. graton made it to 44. now 52. mill valley in there and petaluma and novato. there is an on shore breeze from hayward to livermore and even sfo. 88 already in las vegas. 85 in palm springs. truckee83 at blythe. fog will retreat. high pressure builds in for a
8:18 am
day or two. it is a slow process. a few low 90s. remember, days are still very long. it doesn't take much. we're not expecting anything compared to last week. coast and bay really staying about the same. 60s and 70s. a bump up in the temps but the nights cool off. today and tomorrow may be a little warmer. it looks slightly cooler for the weekend and nice going into the holiday weekend. >> thank you, steve. >> you bet. organizers of the two-day event made the announcement yesterday. the festival has been going for ten years. a redevelopment project forced them to relocate and that has proven to be a challenge. the show will be back up and running soon. what you need to know if you're planning to set off fireworks this year.
