7:02 am
the santa clara valley. i'll deal with that tomorrow. ukiah will be near 110 today. we will see upper 90s to near 100 around here. mostly sunny tonight for the giants and the a's. 72 a little westerly breeze. 50s to almost 70. some areas running cooler, peninsula. some areas running warmer. 51 in glenn helen. look at the bodega gay, 48. point reyes, 49. around the sierra, thunderstorms pop up. again there's the southern california cloud cover and some of the rain. this is kind of taking a turn. we will watch that for late tonight and tomorrow. 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and inland 100. do you want to start with the bay bridge or something else. >> we're starting with the approaches to that. >> okay. >> this is pretty busy time.
7:03 am
people are getting on the road. i want people to know this is actually the quiet time before we get into the fall traffic pattern. we have another few weeks or so. 26 minutes from the carquinez bridge to the maze. may seem slow to you, but, no about a month or two from now you're going to wish for the 26- minute delays because school hasn't started for a lot of people. i know it started for some. i know you're out there. for the most part, schools are not in. at the bay bridge, traffic is obviously very heavy getting on to the bridge. and getting across into san francisco. so it is very crowded. this is about a 25 to 30-minute delay before you actually even make it on to the span. this is a look at interstate 880. it is not very slow drive here in front of the oakland coliseum. a little bit farther down though we have slow traffic somebody on 880. we've had a couple of earlier issues. it is going to be slow as you drive here in hayward. if you're driving to fremont
7:04 am
and into san jose, it hasn't been that bad. we're seeing slow traffic. northbound traffic will be okay through milpitas. 7:04. back to the desk. an audit released by the city comptroller's office says the cash system on cable cars makes it easy for conductors to create fraud. >> reporter: they are recommending that muni cable cars switch to a cash free fare system. if you're going to ride the cable car, now is the time to do it. there is only a handful of people waiting in line to get on board. later this morning, the line for the cable car ride will easily go down to the middle of the block. going to a cash free system may be a burden on the many tourists who ride the cable cars. according to an audit by the comptroller's office says the current fare system costs muni
7:05 am
lots of money. they did an audit late last year and cable car conductors were be collecting money from everyone. out of 30 times, people were asked to pay the fare half of the time. a cable car operator wanted to remain anonymous. but he says it is tough to get to everyone who hops on board and collects a fare. >> you're not going to get everybody. you there are people who know how to get on and off before you get to them. you try to get everyone. you have to be safe first. so you have to be in your position to put the brakes on and to take care of that aspect of the cable car. so you're going to miss some. >> reporter: now, the audit also found that the cash fare system makes it vulnerable to theft by the cable car cannot
7:06 am
ductors. this year, two were charged with embezzlement, pocketing money from passengers paying in cash. one pocketed almost $32,000. the audit recommends that the cable cars switch to a cash free system or at least install fare boxes and require passengers to pass through them. muni officials say a fare box wouldn't work because of the way that the cable cars are designed. it would change the function and the layout and the way that the cable cars work. back out here live on powell street, the line is getting a little longer. definitely tourists in line waiting to hop on board. as for the two cable car operator who's were charged with embezzlement earlier this year, their next court appearance is scheduled for later this month. back to you guys. >> all right. allie rasmus in san francisco. thank you. the time is 7:06. it did not take long for president trump's new chief of
7:07 am
staff to make his mark. after being sworn in, he started cleaning out. caroline shively reports from washington. >> reporter: president trump described john kelly's first day as chief of staff as a great day at the white house. what does he do for day two. >> sit down with legislative liaisons and sit down and put a strategy together. >> reporter: like the retired marine he is, he has established the chain of command. even ivanka trump and jared kushner must go through him to get to the president. scaramucci will report to anyone. he recommended firing scaramucci after his expletive rant to a reporter made head lines. >> he felt that it was inappropriate for a person in that position and he didn't want to burden general kelly also with that line of succession. >> reporter: his biggest fan appears to be matt won hired him. >> i predict that general kelly
7:08 am
will go down in terms of the position of chief of staff one of the great ever. >> reporter: trump supporters are hoping that kelly can also improve relations with congress. most recently marked with ham handed attempts to push senators into a yes vote on health care. >> i don't want to talk about tweeting or anything else. i want donald trump to lead the republican party to take power and money out of washington when it comes to obamacare. >> another controversy for kelly, the "washington post" reports it was the president himself who dictated the misleading statement coming from his son after meeting with a russian lawyer during the campaign. the time is now 7:08. early tomorrow morning, the u.s. will test fire a missile from van denberg air force base. it will be an unarmed ballistic missile, the fourth launch this had year from the military base. one missile in february flew to an area between hawaii and the
7:09 am
philippines. officials are testing the effectiveness and accuracy of the system. the u.s. is responding to north korea's missile tests in recent months. san francisco police are investigating a bizarre attack on a woman in the tenderloin sunday night. investigators say the woman was sitting on the sidewalk on mason street when a man in his 20s approached her and poured bleach on her face. she was taken to the hospital and suffering from life threatening injuries. even if she survives, she is likely to be blind. police don't have a motive for attack and have not released a description of the suspect. anyone who saw what happened is urged to call san francisco police. this is the first tuesday in august. that means it is time for the annual national night out celebration. communities around the bay area and all over the country are holding events where people get to know each other better. the police often drop by, introduce themselves and answer questions. in some cities there are block parties with barbecues and kids bounce houses and face painting
7:10 am
and a lot more. the idea started in 1984 as a way to prevent crime by having the police and residents get to know each other better. so here is our question of the day for you. are you participating in national night out? yes or no? let us know what you think. vote on the ktvu twitter page or ktvu.com. and you can also comment on our ktvu facebook page. the time is 7:10. we have new video to show you released by police in novato showing a group of robbers, look here, smashing a jewelry display case at a costco store. christien kafton, you're in novato with more on the investigation and the police are also -- they want to know if these are serial robbers. >> reporter: yeah. dave, we're going to talk about the other cases in just a minute. you said it, the video really surprising. that video taken here at the novato costco store. you can see some of the cameras
7:11 am
here. at this point in time, investigators are still looking for the suspects. you can see that police hoping that these cameras will take the video that will lead eventually to somebody recognizing those suspects and hoping that they can lead them to the thieves. now, novato police released the video last night. it shows the robbers rushing into the store through the exit door, making their way to the jewelry display case. all of this happened around 10:10 sunday morning, just after the store opened. they wore hoodies and surgical masks and smashed the display case with a hammer. the robbery very quick. taking 30 seconds from entry to escape. the suspects ran outside to a dark colored sedan, similar to a chevy sonic with dealer paper plates. people here are hoping that the video leads to arrests. >> we have to take that really seriously. there were kids in there when it happened or could have been
7:12 am
because it's the summer. and we could have -- or someone could have gotten out when they were running out or they could have had guns. it doesn't matter. it is just violence that we don't need here. >> reporter: this is just the latest robbery fitting the mo. robbers took down a costco in june. in that case, the suspects also wore masks and took off with jewelry after breaking the cases. in may, thieves pulled off two similar heists in costco in danville, firing a round from a gun. one of the suspects in that robbery was arrested. now police are looking to see if there is a possibility that all of these robberies at costcos around the bay area could possibly be connected. we're hoping to talk with novato police about that as the morning progresses. back to you, dave. >> thank you, christien kafton. up next, campbell police are responding to a video that went viral on facebook. in a moment we will show you why an officer pulled out his gun during a traffic stop.
7:13 am
also governor brown takes the air right out of a bill. why he says a law against helium balloons went too far.
7:14 am
7:15 am
>> the time is 7:15. this morning, the marin county board of supervisors will take a step towards resolving the flooding problem on highway 37, the highway that connects vallejo and novato. it was closed for several days during the rainy season this winter and spring. it could cost $3 billion to elevate that section of highway. the marin county of supervisors will vote on a partial tax to finance the road. another option under consideration is having drivers pay a toll, one that could be as high as $8. governor brown vetoed a bill that would have made it a crime to release helium balloons. it would have made it illegal
7:16 am
to release the balloons made of milar or any conductive material. that can cause power outages or surges if the balloons hit power lines. while the governor knows there's a problem, he says criminal penals are not the solution to every problem. >> let's help get you out the door. a lot of people look at the bay bridge as an idea of what is going on everywhere. >> this summer, we didn't have any breaks. gasia and everyone watching knows that school is almost back in. you know, by the end of august, beginning of september, most school districts are in. some are in now. i know this. so i don't have to tell me, hey, i'm going to school now. i know some, for example, are already in class. but this is a look at the east shore freeway. 27 minutes. remember that time because in about a month from now, it will probably be double that as everyone gets back on the road. the bay bridge seems pretty
7:17 am
crowded. it is crowded getting on to the span. this is about a 25, maybe a 30- minute delay depending which line you're in before you make it on to the span. this is a look at interstate 880 north and southbound. continues a terribly slow commute. and just gives me a chance to remind you about the giants and the a's again tonight at the coliseum. the best way to get there is using bart, in my humble opinion. this is a look at 880 a little farther down the line. southbound traffic is going to be a little slow through union city. we had an accident in the northbound direction but it seems to be affecting traffic southbound as well. 7:17. let's bring in steve with today's forecast. >> thank you, sal. what we are looking watt here is a little bit of patchy fog, thick bore some. no help whatsoever for a few incompetent land as temperatures get very warm. we had a bigger fog bank yesterday. some of that, though, on the coast, parts of the bay, parts of the city, there are plenty of breaks. it will burn off sooner. it is setting the stage for a
7:18 am
huge difference in temps. some inland it will be really hot for a few, especially north and i think also east. leanne says hi, sp. happy fog-ust here in san frag. it is august 1st for everyone else. i get it. 68/53 in the city. that is my forecast. >> doug: low. the low has been 53 so far. 98 in 1993, the record high. 48 in 1943 was a record low. heat advisories not in the city. not on the coast. for higher elevations, some to the north, south, inland for sure goes through wednesday. what is going on in southern california? palm springs, now it is in l.a. and it is moving north. that's moisture. monsoon moisture coming over from arizona. they get august 1st rain.
7:19 am
not fog-ust for that. some heading south to the santa clara valley tomorrow. keep an eye on it. ukiah will be near 110 today. clearlake, 107. not that hot today but there will be a few low 100s. tonight mostly sunny for the giants and the a's. almost 70 in brentwood. 60s for some. 50s for others. half moon bay, 52. santa rosa is 53. a little cooler there. 50sand 60s already. 60 already in danville. dublin, pleasanton, 61. vallejo, 58. temperatures will be very warm up there near clearlake. if you're heading towards l.a. and thinking it will be hot and humid, no, cloud cover and the rain on that. and, again, that is lifting northward, along with the dying system coming from the
7:20 am
west/southwest. that may spin in high and mid level clouds. circling the wagons there. not today but late tonight. fog near the coast equals 60s and 70s inland. and then 90s to 100s, gasia, for some. again, another 40-degree spread on some of the temps today. tomorrow, slightly cooler. >> thank you, steve. the time is 7:20. if a 13-hour flight delay wasn't bad enough, an airport worker is accused of punching a passenger. more on what happened at a french airport. leaked information shows that apple is working on something big. reports of an upgrade for the next iphone.

7:24 am
back to his motorcycle to write a ticket. now, authorities say the passenger suddenly reached beneath the seat causing that officer to pull out his gun because he felt threatened. now, campbell police told ktvu we understand that it is never a comfortable position to have a gun pointed at you regardless of whether it is a police officer. if this same situation would have occurred closer to backup officers, it would most likely have been resolved sooner. we're told that the driver and passenger were issued citations. an incident at a french airport is drawing international attention. this photo at the airport in france is going viral. take a look at the right-hand side. you will see an airport worker punching a man in the face. that man, by the way, is holding a baby. this comes after passengers had been delayed 13 hours. passengers were complaining to the gate agency there.

7:32 am
for some, really hot. right across the estuary. maybe someone will come out and wave at us or something like that. anyway, pretty calm out there. there was fog today. not the case today. much less coverage on the low fog deck. it won't matter if you're on the coast. it will be 60s and 70s. inland, 90s and 100s. san francisco 68/53. what is average? 67/55. you're right there. baseball tonight, giants and a's. mostly sunny. a few high clouds but not much. higher elevations also surrounding the bay area for inland areas. 50 toss almost 70s on the temps. most locations are running warmer. santa rosa compared to 24 hours ago. oakland, hayward, sfu running cooler. warmer towards livermore, plus five. so for some, out of the gate here warmer. others a little cooler. all depending on the cloud
7:33 am
cover. west southwest at 18 at travis. not that strong. thunderstorms will pop up over the sierra and drifting off for some. there is rain in southern california. i mean, you can see from riverside over to l.a. and long beach moving north. so that line moved in from arizona. for us, after the fog burns off even if you don't have fog, anywhere from 60s, 90s to 100s. you've opinion talking about the bay bridge approach -- you've been talking about the bay bridge approach. do you want to start there. >> unfortunately we have a new crash that will cause a lot of delay on the pence l a new motorcycle accident. northbound 101 near third. it sounds like there are injuries on northbound 101. as you drive, let's say, from belmont to san jose. that is not going to be a great commute. this will also -- this is also going to affect the san mateo bridge. when you get off, if you want to make that turn on to northbound 101, there's a bunch of slow traffic waiting for you. northbound 101 at third, motorcycle accident. a good alternative is 280 up
7:34 am
the peninsula. that looks good. terrible drawing. let's do that again. there you go. 280 up the peninsula. that's better. it is a better commute as well. across the bay, we have slow traffic on 880 north and southbound. we had a couple of earlier issues. 880 is slow from san leandro up to oakland. in the south bay, 101 and 280 are slow. 280 is okay in the south bay. and 24 through lafayette is going to be moderately heavy. at the bay bridge toll plaza, it is backed up. kind of a big one this morning. 25 to 30-minute delay. 7:34. let's go back to the desk. happening today, new parking regulations are taking effect in alameda. harbor bay is one of the two ferry terminals. its parking lot only has 250 spots so drivers sometimes ended up parking on some neighborhood streets. starting today, though, drivers without a residential permit will only be able to park in the neighborhood for four hours. city transportation leaders say people should rely on buses,
7:35 am
ride sharing and bicycles to get to the harbor bay ferry terminal because parking is so limited. those who take the ferry from vallejo to san francisco will have to pay more for parking now. it goes from $5 to $6. a monthly parking cost will double from $20 to $40. people taking the ferry says this $1 a day increase adds up. >> you have to think about where you're going to work, where you're going to live, if it will cost you your paycheck just to park. >> the parking lot at the vallejo ferry terminal has space for 1300 vehicles. now to san francisco where an engineering analysis shows the millennium tower in san francisco can withstand an 8.0 earthquake even though it continues to sink and tilt. there was a panel that examined the highrise building. the building has sunk about 16 inches since opening in 2009. the chronicle reports that the engineering panel agreed with the earlier assessment by a structural engineer that the
7:36 am
tower settling has not compromised its ability to survive strong earthquakes. experts recommend watching it and reevaluating in the future. another scandal around wells fargo. customers claim they were force today pay for insurance they didn't need or want. wells fargo admits as many as 500,000 may have been affected and the 25,000 people had their cars repossessed as a result. this follows a big scandal over wells fargo opening millions of unauthorized bank accounts. a new state law will give voters new details about proposed taxes in cities and counties. it was signed by governor brown yesterday. voters will be given exact details on the total amount of any proposed tax, how long it will last and how much money it will generate. this law goes into effect january 1st. the a's beat the giants 8-5
7:37 am
last night. warriors star klay thompson throughout the first pitch right down the middle for a strike. the giants took a lead in the 4th when rookie carlos recorded his first big league hit. but the turning point of this game came in the 6th inning, where marcus simmon at the plate. >> to center field. going back. and that baby is gone. a grand slam for marcus simmon. >> after this, the giants would rally to make it 6-5 but the a's grabbed a couple of insurance runs in the 8th. now, this morning the oakland a's are investigating a fight that happened inside of the stands last night during the game against the giants. the fight was between fans and a security guard. alex savidge is live now at the coliseum with how the oakland a's are responding to what we just saw on tape. alex. >> reporter: gasia, good
7:38 am
morning to you. the a's organization is trying to get to the bottom of what happened last night. the fight broke out in the third deck of the coliseum in the middle of the first game of the bay bridge series last night. it was a female security guard who attacked a fan. here is the video post today twitter last night. it shows this scuffle in the stands. the security guard wearing the black jacket appears to throw punches at a female fan. and according to a report out this morning from the bay area news group, a number of witnesses saw that female security guard grab the woman's hair as other security guards stepped in to try to break things up. but other video showed the same security guard return to the stands minutes late tore that same section and the woman can be seen screaming at fans and being held back by security officers. this morning, bay area baseball fans are weighing in on the video. video. >> that is a little disturbing. that is -- we saw the video for
7:39 am
five seconds. so what happened before or after is probably more to the story, you know. what happened a couple years ago in l.a., i thought maybe they would beef up security. but it's -- it's giants and a's, you know. split hats with a's and giants down the middle. it is a's or giants. >> reporter: the bay bridge series always a heated rivalry here in the bay area. the oakland a's responded shortly after the scuffle last night, putting out a tweet that says the team is investigating what took place and it also says we contract with a third party security company and are currently investigating the situation. violence in any form is not acceptable. we take this incident seriously. the security guard seen throwing punches on that -- on that video from last night has not yet been identified. but, again, that was game one of the bay bridge series last
7:40 am
night at the coliseum. game two is tonight at 7:05. and then the a's and giants, gasia, they play two more games over in san francisco at at&t park. >> alex, have you heard anything about increased security there tonight? are the a's treating this as a one off? >> reporter: yeah. we haven't heard anything further from the a's this morning. beyond the tweet that they put out last night saying theroux owe giving the sense that they were concerned about what took place involving the security guard. they haven't indicated whether there will be increased security. as we know with the bay bridge series, it draws more fans than any other game would likely draw to the coliseum. it is always busy and you have to imagine that maybe after something like this, they have extra security and police officers on hand as well. >> thank you, alex savidge. the time is 7:40. in the meantime a new report on san francisco reveals the
7:41 am
latest crime trends there. coming up at 8:00, the surprising increases we have seen so far this year. also, continues your typical holding area at a jail. it is a $12 million plan taking place in santa clara county.

in the reentry center will be trance forked into the county's latest fix for public drunkenness. >> there will be a nursing station, assessment station, five recliners in here. >> reporter: a temporary sobering station for those badly intoxicated. outside trailers set up for bathrooms. the county sees it as a way to save money and time for officer who's spend hours booking offenders in the jail. >> it can be $190 a jail for anybody in jail. that is the fairmont. jails are important places for people who are a risk to the community. maybe not such a good place for someone drunk in public. >> the cost funded by a state grant. it is part of a bigger plan for jail reform. to keep mentally ill people and those suffering from drug and alcohol addictions out of jail. a jail under scrutiny after the
7:45 am

8:04 am
store opened sunday morning. the robbers wore hoodies and surgical masks and smashed the display case with a hammer. the robbery was quick, taking just 30 seconds from entry to escape. those shuts then ran outside to a waiting vehicle, a dark colored sedan similar to a chevy sonic with paper dealer plates. this morning people are saying that they hope the video leads to arrests. >> hopefully the video will, you know, help. and the police will, you know, stop this ring or whatever it is fast. >> reporter: this is just the latest robbery fitting the same mo. robbers took down a costco in foster sit tee in june. in that case, suspects also wore a mask and used a hammer and took off with jewelry. then back in may, thieves pulled off two similar heists at the costco in danville. in one case, firing a round from a gun. one suspect from one of the robberies was arrested. now police are looking to see if there is a possibility if all of the cases could possibly
8:05 am

8:07 am
attractions in san francisco. 6million people a year ride the cable cars. many are tourists. muni says switching to a cash free system could be a burden. an audit says the current fare system makes it vulnerable to theft and fraud and ends up costing muni lots of money in lost revenue. there was an audit done late last year and they rode the cable cars 30 times and fares were only collected half of the time. one of the things that the report recommends is no longer paying the fare in cash. we spoke to tourists this morning about that and a current cable car operator who wanted to remain. >> i would love it. it would make my job easier. if they're into making the money, they're going to lose it. people will be standing in line to get a ticket, which will take a while. then you have to stand in line again to get on. >> most things moving away from having cash on you. so this is kind of --
8:08 am
>> people will adjust? >> yeah. >> reporter: now, earlier this year, two cable car operators were charged with embezzlement. they pocketed some of the fares in cash. if no receipt is written, there is no record of the transaction. one of the men is accused of using the system to pocket as much as $32,000. now, back here on camera, the audit says the muni can't switch to a cash-free system, then it should install fare box that's passengerswould have to pass through. that is not a great option either because of the way that the cable cars are designed. the cable cars are iconic. you can understand why you wouldn't want to do anything to change the look or function of them. we heard back from muni this morning. while the agency appreciates the findings in the study that the audit concluded, he said that they will be looking at
8:09 am
other ways to promote cashless fare options for people who ride the cable cars many back to. >> look forward to hearing more about the other ways. thank you, allie. new crime statistics for san francisco show a jump in the number of homicides so far this year compared to last. the examiner obtained data showing there were 41 homicides through july of this year. 30 last year. the number of robberies rose slightly from 1,525 to 1594. while this is the first tuesday in august, that means that tonight is national night out. communities across the bay area and across the country are holding events where people can get to know their neighbors better. police often drop by to introduce themselves and did answer questions. in some cities there are block parties with barbecues and bounce houses.
