4:00 pm
>> this was of epic proportion. president trump gets briefed as neighborhoods continue to brace for what is to come. and the reasons why the mayors -- the mayor of berkeley wants to cancel a speech about free speech. a houston police officer has now become the latest victim of harvey. the chief broke down today describing how steve perez got caught in floodwaters and trapped in the car.>> we couldn't find them. and once our team got there, it was too treacherous to go under and look for him. so we had to make the decision to leave officers there waiting until the morning because as much as
4:01 pm
we wanted to recover him, we could not put another officer at risk. >> they say the officer was on his way to work when he drowned. i'm alyana gomez. 15 is the death toll so far since friday. president trump landed in texas and pledged to do whatever he can to help the suffering. >> reporter: hi as harvey continues to linger, the deadly flood threat continues. in houston alone, they have had to rescue some 3500 people.>> this was of epic proportion.
4:02 pm
nobody's ever seen anything like this. >> reporter: president trump visited tuesday receiving on the ground briefings in corpus christi and austin. this is as water rescues continued in houston and surrounding regions. >> there are currently 3000 texas guardsmen on duty today. it will go to 4000 over the next 24 hours.>> reporter: with the reservoirs and levies overflowing, more residents are evacuating. displaced wildlife from snakes to gators are also causing concern. meanwhile with harvey continuing to dump rain and 30,000 people expected to seek emergency shelter, houston is running out of space. they are working on plans to open more emergency shelters. the convention center was only supposed to house 5000 victims, but by early tuesday, more than 9000 people were staying. >> we made the official request to fema. we need additional
4:03 pm
assistance, so we ask them to provide supplies and cots, food, for an additional 10,000 individuals. >> reporter: officials are warning people that live near two huge reservoirs that the flooding could continue until october. >> that is a dire prediction. thank you so much lauren blanchard live. crews are hoping to find people stranded and bring them to safety. ken is live in katy, texas. he caught up with bay area rescue crews out in their boats.>> reporter: you should be seeing a live picture from one of the boats. that's task force 4 out in the middle of
4:04 pm
the floodwater trying to bring people in. there was room for a photographer but not myself so i'm giving you a full report from the shoreline where that boat will be returning in the next few minutes. but since we've been here in the last few hours, we have seen about 20 to 25 people being pulled out of the neighborhood. this is a middle-class upscale neighborhood with two-story homes where a lot of people thought they could stay behind and not have to worry about floodwaters. this is called the buffalo bayou area of katie -- katy, texas. it runs east-west. as lauren mentioned, the two reservoirs are upstream and water was released from the reservoirs because there was concern that the rising floodwaters would cause a breach. so when that water was released, it came downstream into this neighborhood in katy, texas. flooded out dozens of homes. one person says he thinks the flood area goes about 2 to 3
4:05 pm
miles back down a road called mason road that runs north and south and katy, texas. so this rescue operation continues. with teams in phoenix and los angeles and the east bay working to get these people out of harms way. >> we are watching them. they have these poles in their hands, they're going to the water. they are going up to the doors. we actually see right here, one rescue worker handing another one a green note. i am assuming that is -- at some point, that will go on a house or car or property to let everyone know coming behind them know that everyone, this area has been checked out. no one is here. move on. four that is the idea behind that, but that doesn't always work, because what i have been told from these rescuers is that some of these folks are
4:06 pm
actually hiding out. they don't want to come out. the rescuers go back with whistles and pound on the door and let them know that they are there to pull them out, and it actually seen people who scurry back behind and hide and try to get out of view and won't come out. they just don't want to leave. but as the days go on it becomes apparent to many of them that it is really time to go, they should get out. i talked to two people who thought they could write it out, but it doesn't do that. one resident here tells me that there were he was the flood control situation in the reservoirs upstream, that the water level could actually get higher in the next few days. it could rise another five feet. this is far from over. it does me the water level will go down just because it isn't raining.
4:07 pm
>> some calm before the storm, the sun is out, but neighbors are bracing for what is to come. cars are more than 50% submerged. you see that some residents have taken further precautions in trying to prepare. it looks like moments ago there was a piece of tarp taped up in front of the door to stop some of the water from coming in. but as it appears here, the water has to be at least several feet on the first floor of the home. it doesn't appear to have gone to the second floor. but they are taking those measures. there knocking twice in hopes of finding people it is a really terrible situation. it's a catastrophic event. people are trying to get out of harms way as to the notification. >> reporter: there is a facebook page i'm told where people are sending out messages that, okay, i do need to get some help. those messages are being passed on to rescuers who are going back and pulling people out.
4:08 pm
i've talked to people who thought that they would be okay, and they put the measures by putting sandbags in plastic and trying to do what they could to keep the water out, but that really is almost an impossible task when you have this much water coming in. you just can't seal up your house watertight. once it starts seeping in, it is game over. we had one resident say they had two or three feet of water inside their ground floor, and then one of the people who was on a boat working with these rescues is that he felt the rescue -- the water was at least four feet deep and possibly deeper. that would explain why i'm staring at a pickup truck and the water is almost to the top of the cabin. that has to be at least four or five feet easy. there is a tremendous amount of water. >> our hearts break for all of the families returning home to find what is left of their home.
4:09 pm
we will continue to monitor the situation. ken, we appreciate your time today. stay safe out there. ken is live in katy, texas. thank you ken. as those recovery efforts continue, for it is really something, rosemary, when you see how high the water is. you can understand if this was coming in your area, you want to protect your home and things, but to think that some people may be hiding in the house because they don't want to leave it, they are so desperate to stay. but to think that, okay if i leave, when am i coming back?>> right. >> our last calculations work 40 to 50 inches reported over areas of houston. we are not done yet. let's take a look at harvey right now moving northeast at about six miles per hour. you can see right in here, going to make landfall. it looks like by tonight. then we will continue a northeast direction of the next coming days. you've got about six hours on
4:10 pm
here. some of the heavier rain is moving along the strip between texas and louisiana. you can see on the west edge of houston, we are talking about definitely improving with the rainfall, definitely coming down in the way of i should say not falling at this point, but a lot of the flooding will continue to occur as we get into the coming days. as we get into wednesday and thursday, it will weaken into a low. and will move in a northeast direction. all of the damage needless to say is already done. we will continue to track it between now and then. meanwhile here at home, a cooler day followed by a big heat up. we will have more coming up. thank you so much. working to clear san francisco's jammed 911 emergency line. we will tell you about the calls that will be transferred now 2311 instead. berkeley officials at odds.

4:15 pm
wing cause the violence but you're saying the right wing can't have their free speech? >> reporter: i would express the same concern if it was the other way around. it has nothing to do with the content of speech. >> reporter: they said they can't invite nor stop people from coming. >> is a law is broken in the course of the event, we will react immediately and appropriately. but we want, based on a generalized concern shut down speech before it happens. the law and the supreme court have been absolutely clear on that front.>> reporter: berkeley patriot invited a right-wing provocateur to a free-speech week. he never got a chance this week last time when black masked vandals caused $100,000 in damage. we could have a repeat of what

4:18 pm
started interviewing witnesses, the suspect vehicle happen to drive by. >> reporter: while police were interviewing, the suspect return, that's when officers pursued him. as he tried to get away, he crashed his car into the apartment building. he was taken into custody a short time later and taken to the hospital as a precaution after the crash. no one was hurt. the group that was fired at was not hit by gunfire. police say none of the officers was injured. the man was taken to the hospital as a precaution. leigh martinez life. with talk with rosemary about what people are facing in texas, let's talk about a -- the bay area. today tomorrow will be the best days if you don't like the heat. it is coming back in a big way. first a beautiful view across

4:24 pm
iphone 7 and the iphone 7+. they will also talk about releasing a new apple watch with an lte chip on the inside. you can have your watch without it tethered to the phone. they will release the home pod which they talked about at the wdc in june. we are expecting pretty big announcements. also apple tv with 4k and hdr support. when it comes to samsung, here's the funny thing, they are stealing the thunder. they just announced six days ago that the new note eight will be released on the 12th just a couple days before the announcement and it will be in stores and you can have it in your hands on the 14th. samsung has done this before. apple is predictable in their release schedule now. mid-september announcement, usually a late september
4:25 pm
release. sometimes if there is a delay, it could also push into october. the iphone 8, it has been reported that there may have been delays with the phone because of some of the new features. they will have facial recognition, wireless charging, some of the other really amazing things that they will step into the phone to make it a product that can compete with samsung who has really been leading the pack. >> samsung's display i've heard is one of the best. apparently, they are working on their display to make it even better than anything that's out there. >> the note 8 is amazing. it's called the infinity display. this is the first time that phones will reach up to $1000 and cost. the iphone 8 is rumored to be around $1000. the note 8 is right around
4:26 pm
there. >> is it worth it? a >> i don't know. it depends on the technology. for a nerd like me, absolutely. don't tell my wife how much it will be because i will sneak it in. [ laughter ] but like the galaxy that was released before it's half the cost of their flag ship product. and you can't mention those you can't not mention the exploding problem of last year. we aren't expecting that with the 8. but one of the cool parts of the note 8 is the docking station so you can dock it with your monitor and keyboard. you can have a full screen experience. that could cut into the tablet sales. if apple follows along, maybe we will see some new technology. >> apparently the iphone 8 will be the first one to feature and oh l.e.d. display? >> you will get richer colors,
4:27 pm
deeper plaques, it will be easier on the battery light -- life. one of the interesting parts about the note 8 is you can take notes on the screen when the screen is off because it can react to the stylus. who knows what apple will have in store for us. they've always had great displays to compete. most of samsung's technology is already in the apple phone. that's why samsung knows their release schedule so well. >> let's see how many pop up under the christmas trees or holiday trees this season. regular breaking it down for us today. >> you're welcome. he has been at the helm of the memorial church for decades. now cecil williams is stepping down. i will speak with the new president coming up. now north korea as claiming that

4:31 pm
dispatchers answer an average of 3000 break and calls per month. >> for every one of those calls, at least 3 to 4 minutes of a call taker is spent answering questions and getting forms at. that's all the work that 311 can do, not 911. 911 has to be about emergencies.>> the mayor says since calls started going 2311, the 911 center has come closer to meeting a standard of answering calls within 10 seconds. the reverend cecil williams is now stepping aside. cameron hanrahan is being welcomed as the new president. we are glad to have karen here. >> thank you for having me. >> introduced to the congregation on sunday, must've been big.>>@was a beautiful day an amazing moment. we had our lead pastor leading

4:34 pm
very ambitiously.>> a lot of the most underserved are most vulnerable. the homeless population, speak about some of the other challenges. >> our challenges are the cities challenges and really the nation's challenges. for example, we've seen a rise in the number and visibility of hate groups as we all felt last week, the past few weeks in charlottesville and here. the good news is that san francisco has united around a rejection of hate and discrimination. this really gives us hope that we can come together to address some of the more persistent challenges that we face in this city like homelessness, displacement, hunger, racism, we are facing inequalities that are really challenging san francisco's values.
4:35 pm
>> you worked in the obama administration. talk to me about that role and what you think that role will do in this new position.>> i have served in the obama administration since the beginning. i came on board to work at the state department and i ended my tenure as a deputy assistant secretary for democracy and human rights. it was an incredible experience and time to work in that administration. i've been working on social justice and human rights issues in the obama administration and for about 20 years. my experience around the world has taught me that social justice, inequalities, the kind of social change that is needed here in san francisco, it looks similar around the world. i've worked in africa, asia, the middle east, i see there similarities to what is
4:36 pm
happening in san francisco. there's this rising gap between the rich and the poor. displacement, people who are excluded and marginalized as that grows even wider. i hope to bring that global perspective. i have a lot of hope and optimism about what can be done about it. that's especially here in san francisco. it's the city of lights and city of values that i know can help change some of those challenges. >> we wish you the best of luck. big shoes to fill. it sounds like a good fit. thank you.>> thank you. after weeks of what seemed to be a softer diplomatic tone, tensions with north korea are on the rise following a missile test last night. just about an hour ago north korea said kim jong-un was present for the launch over japan. benjamin hall has more from london. >> reporter: it's a new
4:37 pm
provocation from a familiar adversary. north korea fired a ballistic missile over japan for the first time since 2009. it is designed to carry a nuclear weapon and it splashed into the ocean. the trump administration condemned the launch. un ambassador hinted at retaliation. >> it is unacceptable. they have violated every single un security council resolution that we've had. i think something serious has to happen. >> reporter: president trump spoke to japan's prime minister after the missile splashed down. both leaders agreed on the need to cut off the sources of funding to north korea's missile program. >> they are going to agree on new economic sanction measures to put the greatest pressure ever against north korea. >> reporter: north korea says it won't be intimidated claiming it needs its weapons
4:38 pm
to protect against what it calls aggression from the u.s. >> will continue to strengthen with nuclear force. >> reporter: china is calling on both sides to back off. they say military pressure and threats won't persuade the north. >> the only correct way to resolve the issue is to solve the security issues of all the parties equally. four a bombing run was practiced to take out the leadership. the climate change debate heating up again in the wake of hurricane harvey. we will hear from an expert when we come back. weather in store for wednesday before changes come our way that will bring excessive heat and time for your bay area holiday. we will take a look at what you

4:42 pm
inappropriate to discuss while it is still on a destructive path. the question that remains, can climate change make these storms more likely? experts we spoke with say warmer temperatures increase total rainfall. just before harvey hit, the coast was unusually warm. >> for a given storm sitting over a warmer ocean, it will intensify more rapidly and to a -- into a stronger storm. >> they say climate change has led to sea level rise causing coastal flooding. it makes it more difficult for the area to drain all the water out. breaking news in the ponderosa fire. it has now burned more than 200 acres. these are life pictures of the fire scene. evacuation orders are in place. fire crews are on the scene
