5:04 pm
downpour became a fight for survival for over 500 south bay households. days of heavy rain and a release of water from anderson reservoir sent thousands of gallons into the coyote creek. the result, chest high flood waters swallowed three neighborhoods causing millions of dollars in damage. >> with us paying our taxes to prevent floods and the city not having a warning system in place, hopefully that will change. hopefully this will bring about change. >> reporter: claimants want restitution for the loss of property. one attorney sees a structured negotiation as an option. the chairman for the district e- mailed a response saying, quote, our hearts go out to everyone who was impact, and the district will give each claim due consideration. the county and city both responded similarly. >> the city received the claims yesterday, and our attorney's office is going to review those, and that's all we can
5:05 pm
say at this point. >> reporter: those gathered here hope reason will trump legal strategy. >> hopefully we will get some closure. we're on top of the problems rather than kicking them down the road. >> reporter: there are two more informational meetings for people interested in learning how they can file a claim. one is on the 15th of this month, the other the 22nd. the deadline for filing, august 18th, about six months after the fact. in the san jose newsroom, jesse gary, ktvu fox 2 news. google is getting ready to make a donation to help those flood victims. the company plans to donate $100,000 through rebuilding together silicon valley. the money will pay for building supplies. the executive director says the donation from google is going to have a major impact. >> we have been working since the floods, and there's a lot of work still yet to be done

5:07 pm
two counts of murder, hit-and- run, and dui. a judge, prosecutor, defense attorney and bailiff came from contra costa county for the unusual hearing. ktvu spoke to the prosecutor after the brief hearing where cameras were not allowed. no family members were there. >> it went fine. pretty routine. it was a hospital arraignment. the arraignment was put over for two weeks. no plea was entered. >> reporter: wilson is accused of fleeing the scene after he crashed his car with a woman and her two sons inside. the children were killed. >> if you are a parent, you can only begin to imagine how tear i believe the loss is from both sides. just a horrible, horrible thing. >> reporter: the chp, which investigated the case, says wilson has three dui convictions and was again drunk and driving on a suspended license at the time of the deadly crash. and that factored into the d.a.'s decision to charge him with murder and not vehicular
5:08 pm
manslaughter. >> when somebody intentionally commits an act which they know is inherently dangerous to human life and they go ahead and do that act anyway and, in fact, some loss body dies, it's called implied malice. >> reporter: the boys' mother, who was hurt along with her son, says she hopes wilson will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. >> thank you for making sure that with these charges, when conviction time comes, there will be justice for my children. >> reporter: in two weeks the court could return to the hospital unless the man's medical condition improves. if that happens he will appear in a courtroom. julie. >> henry, he was injured in that crash, so that's why he was in the hospital, and also do you have any updates on the baby boy? >> reporter: the mother did not want to reveal too much. at one point he was taken off a respirator to breathe on his own but suffered seizures and is back in critical condition. >> what do we know about the
5:09 pm
suspect's injuries? >> reporter: we tried to ask the prosecutor. he cannot megs anything about that because of medical confidentiality rules. >> henry, thank you. a former security screener at san francisco international airport was sentenced to a year in federal prison today for agreeing to look the other way during a luggage inspection that she was caught at during an undercover sting. 29-year-old jessica scott was sentenced yesterday. her ex-husband was a security supervisor for a private company called covenant aviation security. he pleaded guilty last month to accepting a bribe as a public official. he is set to be sentenced in november. terrifying surveillance video from the los angeles area. it shows a man grabbing a woman and forcing her into a van. coming up next, hear from the person whose camera captured the kidnapping. and south bay trails partially shut down today because of this. if you look close there, yeah, that's a mountain lion.
5:10 pm
coming up next, where these mountain lions were spotted. and we are tracking some fire activity out there in the winters area. there is a pretty good size fire burning near vacaville. when we come back we are going to talk about some mandatory evacuations in the winters area. we will be talking about that fire news and the heat that is going to continue. we do have more now. we want to show you live pictures from the scene of that winters fire. it is burning in yolo county. right now it is 80 acres that have been blackened. we just learned now that authorities have issued mandatory evacuations. right now highway 128 is closed in that area. we will have more on that fire coming up.
5:11 pm
5:12 pm
5:13 pm
police in los angeles county are hoping home security video will help them capture a man who kidnapped a woman in broad daylight. it happened around noon yesterday in the san fernando valley. the neighbor who owns the camera says he is horrified by what he saw. >> it is scary because that could be anybody's daughter, sister, you know, and i just -- i'm glad that i was able to catch it. >> the suspect vehicle is believed to be a light blue chrysler minivan, possibly a town and country. police say they are still searching for both the man and woman. it appears the two know each other but at this time investigators still don't know a possible motive for the kidnapping. big cats are causing concern at a well-known park in the south bay. several hiking trails in san
5:14 pm
jose's park were closed due to several mountain lion sightings. this video shows one mountain lion that was taken recently near one of those trails. you can see the mountain lion in the middle of the screen. the park's one-way road and south rim trail will be closed at least today and tomorrow. park rangers say they will reassess on saturday and could extend those closures. >> the department, after consultation with the department of fish and wildlife, decided to close the south rim trail and the one-way road and its connectors out of an abundance of caution because of mountain lion sightings. >> rangers have an important safety tip for anyone who encounters a mountain lion. stand tall, face the animal and try to look bigger by waving your arms around. a grass fire damaged a vineyard and destroyed a barn in south livermore this afternoon. there were no reports of any
5:15 pm
injuries. crews were able to keep those flames from spreading to some nearby homes. the fire was reported shortly before 2:00 near the intersection of east vineyard avenue and vallecitos road. in yolo county near the city of winters a grass fire has caused mandatory evacuations. it has also shut down a portion of highway 128. this is not our camera. just our luck it is not on the fire right now. hopefully it will pan out and we will see the flames. the fire has burned 250 acres. it is burning three miles southwest of winters and east of lake berryessa. at this point it is only 10% contained. again, we apologize, we don't have any control over this helicopter shot. we can only hope here that they will pan over to some of the flames. highway 128 is currently closed at pleasant valley road. no word on when that highway could reopen. there are 250 firefighters
5:16 pm
right now working on that fire. again, 250 acres burned, only 10% contained. here's some video of that fire that we shot a little bit earlier here. you get some sense of what's going on right there. let's bring in our chief meteorologist bill martin to talk more about the conditions. >> upper 90s, even some low 100s, so it's hot. 128, a lot of folks live out in that area on the pleasant hill road. that's a main road that runs up to lake berryessa. it runs up to the marina where people launch their boats. there's a lot of traffic there. the big fire we had was up on the hilltops, and it was moving from tree to tree. this fire, as you look at tape, it isn't live, this fire was more like you are seeing here. i didn't see any trees engaged in the fire at that time. sour seeing sort of a flash
5:17 pm
burn, which is dang rowrks absolutely, but when i start worrying is when i see trees starting to go up. so we will keep an eye on that. in the control room, if you guys get that shot back of the fire, let's take that, because that's what's happening now. any time you have evacuations in a fire this time of night you want to get to it. it is going to stay hot out there. temperatures are basically running in the 90s right now in the inland valleys and low 100s. across the country you do have a bit of inclement weather, rain from dallas all the way up to new hampshire, then some stuff in the rockies, and for us just dry. getting hot inland. not so much along the coast, but in these inland valleys, as we talked about last night, the heat is coming in through the central valley. that's why you see the purples. up in the valley, by chico, marysville. we're a little cooler because we have a bit of a sea breeze that will not turn off. it will stay on through the bay
5:18 pm
area evening and weekend. there's your live camera shot. good air quality. why do i know that? because we're at twin peaks and we can see campanilla. so high pressure building in, getting hotter. then on saturday temperatures are going to dip down just a little bit. and that will be the story. so the fire danger is no surprise. you will get fires when you get this kind of heat. we will have fires again tomorrow, too. so it's just a matter of firefighters being able to get on them. we reported three fires in the last hour, the biggest of which is the winters fire which we're trying to get you some live feed from right now. again, it's big, but they've got a crew on it. we saw air drops on it already. hopefully they are getting a handle on it. look at the heat. there's the real heat, and there's the real fire danger in those purple areas.
5:19 pm
that's in the very eastern valleys. but you see the cool bite around the area. so a nice looking day tomorrow. it is hot, it is nothing unusual, no red flag warnings. summertime in the bay area. it's dry, it's hot. here we go. do you guys have a live camera? >> just our luck, we don't have any control over the pilot. we can take it but we don't have any control. >> oh, yeah, i see, that's what's happening. in these areas there are a lot of big ranches, julie. a lot of horse people live out on pleasant hill road so they're going to have livestock they have to evacuate. >> what they say on the cal fire web site, mandatory evacuations near highway 121 -- highway 21, excuse me, and advisory evacuations for golden bear estates. they also have five air tankers and two helicopters working on this fire. >> you can see the fire
5:20 pm
apparatus and the crew taking a stand, guarding those homes. >> the thing i look at, you see the green areas, those are oak trees. when you start seeing flames coming out of there, that to me is when it starts becoming very, very dangerous, because the trees are crowning. >> looks like they're making good progress. >> i don't see any flames right now, just white smoke. >> at the 4:00 we had the shots up and we did see them dropping fire retardant about an hour ago. so they've been hitting it pretty hard with big tanker planes. >> as i said they've got five air tankers and two helicopters and 250 firefighters. we will keep you posted. it is burning near winters. some mandatory evacuations underway. only 10% containment but i imagine that is going to be going up in the coming hours. earthquakes are a threat we have learned to live with here in the bay area but a new study shows our earthquake danger may

guilty on all counts. that was the verdict late this afternoon by a jury in the jewelry mart double murder
5:24 pm
trial. >> 27-year-old barry white faced 16 felony counts including first-degree murder for the killings that left two store clerks dead and the owner critically injured. >> i think it was definitely a relief for the families of those victims who have been waiting for four years for justice in this case. and when the verdict was read it really wasn't much of a shock to anyone because the evidence in this case was so powerful. now, we watched as the families of the two people who were fatally shot walked out of the courtroom. they told us they were emotionally exhausted, especially after seeing graphic photos of their loved ones being gunned down. dozens of family members were here yesterday for closing arguments. 27-year-old barry white was also found guilty of trying to
5:25 pm
kill the store owner. white was also convicted of attempted murder of six police officers who responded to the scene that day on july 12th, 2013. we spoke to both the prosecuting and defense attorneys. >> he didn't have any mental defense. it was a fake mental defense. and thankfully the jury saw through that and did the right thing. not only on behalf of the civilian victim but also on behalf of the six soon francisco police officers -- the six san francisco police officers that almost died that day. >> barry was a young kid, and now his life has changed forever. so it is a tragedy all the way around. >> reporter: prosecutors say white went on a rampage because he felt the owner had shortchanged him on a necklace that he bought at the store. they say he waited for 20
5:26 pm
minutes until customers left the store for his attack. the defense felt the charges should have been downgraded to manslaughter because of the defendant's ptsd. >> the charges for the acts were pretty simple because we had video film. >> reporter: we were sitting directly behind white so we didn't have much of a chance to see his face but he did appear to show very little emotion. he faces life in prison without the possibility of parole. in san francisco, tara moriarty, ktvu fox 2 news. more than 1,000 gallons of fuel siphoned from an underground tank overnight. coming up, the identifying characteristics of the van driven by the man and woman who authorities say stole that gas. uniforms, bats, balls, and gloves. but this isn't just any ordinary softball game. the mission that a team from

5:30 pm
is set to join up with another. >> reporter: the result of sonar and sensing confirms what scientists had only once guessed at. >> what we found was that the hayward fault actually continues beneath the bay and bends towards the rogers creek fault at the northern end of the basement we found that those two faults are actually directly connected. that means it's easier for an earthquake to rupture from either fault. the longer an earthquake fault is the larger an earthquake it can produce. >> reporter: by itself the hayward fault can produce a 6.7 to possibly as much as a magnitude 7 quake. but add in the rogers creek fault -- >> together the hayward and rogers creek fault if they went together could produce up to a magnitude 7.4. >> reporter: that's five times stronger than the loma prieta
5:31 pm
quake. >> it would be much more devastating than the loma prieta earthquake. so folks need to be prepared for these larger earthquakes. >> reporter: we now have technologies not available a decade ago that can help us better understand that these faults can team up for a major earthquake, even if they're not directly connected. >> it's worth taking a look at all of the faults that are closely spaced throughout the bay area. faults that are separated by a few kilometers and sometimes even longer distances can actually rupture together at once. even if they're not directly connected. >> reporter: these findings will help scientists better predict where the most severe shaking will be. but looking at this map where the purple indicates the most violent shaking, that area can only grow. tom vacar, ktvu fox 2 news. admissions data released today by the university of california shows how tough it
5:32 pm
is to win acceptance to the u.c. system. using uc berkeley as an example, the school received more than 100,000 applicants for this fall and offered admission to only 9,715 students. overall 210,000 students applied to the nine campuses, and uc offered admission in the fall to 106,000 freshmen and 24,000 transfer students. 69,000 are california residents, which is a slight decline from last year. the state senate today approved a new fee on real estate transactions to help generate hundreds of millions of dollars for affordable housing. the legislation would add a $75 fee to documents such as deads and notices with a cap of $225 per transaction. this bill is expected to generate between $200 million and $300 million per year for low-income housing. republicans oppose the measure. they say would it hurt middle-

class homebuyers. novato police are looking for a man and woman who they believe siphoned more than 1,000 gallons of diesel fuel from a bus yard. but as rob roth found out, investigators appear to have some good leads thanks to a custodian who witnessed the theft. >> reporter: here in this bus yard on an off the beaten path part of novato police say a man and woman cut into a chain-link fence and siphoned 1250 gals loons of diesel from an underground storage tank before speeding off. the theft was observed by a quick thinking custodian working the night shift. he saw two people siphoning the fuel into storage tanks in this white van. in one, you can see a woman in the passenger seat. >> he came in thinking that it was possibly one of the
5:34 pm
drivers, noticed the truck there and that this line was coming out of the back of the truck. it's pretty unique because i have never seen a truck show up, and they obviously already had pumping equipment and some kind of storage apparatus in the back of it. >> reporter: police say the license plates may be stolen but one of the identifying features of the van are the words automatic ac seats three. >> they cut the locks, drive in there and start siphoning diesel. >> reporter: the school district says the 1250 gallons of diesel is about a three-day fall supply worth about $3,000. the diesel is used to power the district's fleet of school buses and some maintenance trucks. >> it is really disappointing that these people would steal from the school district and the students. but also happy that nobody was injured. >> reporter: the school district has no security cameras in the yard but they say that is likely to soon change. in novato, rob roth, ktvu fox 2
