what we have in california. our tectonic plates rub side by side while in mexico, they dip, one below the other. >> the earthquakes that we have here are usually strike sliver earthquakes, as the technical term goes and these are earthquakes in the sub ducks zone where one plate dives under another one. >> there is something else. there is a risk that we share. the bay area bay lands and the fill areas, they suffer liquefactions, unstable when they shake. mexico city is built in a former lake, built on sediment. san francisco's public health department and ucsf are moving ahead with plans to build a new research center. ucsf gave an update on the health commission's plans to build a new building near san francisco general hospital. after those big quakes in mexico, officials are also

6:16 am
many slow traffic on the way down to the macarthur maze. many people who go to the bay bridge, start the timer again. that's about a 10 to 15 minute delay before you get into the span. even better on 580 westbound from castro valley to the lake shore curve and if you are driving on the peninsula, highway 101 and 280 are looking good. the peninsula and highways don't get crowded. let's bring steve in for the weather. >> we'll start with hurricane maria. made landfall as category 4. winds are in you down to 125 miles per hour only. could you not place it anymore squarely than what maria has done right over puerto rico.
6:17 am
the radar sites are down. it is expected to stay category 4 and get back into the atlantic. it will continue to feed off very warm water once it gets off land. some of the mountainous areas may take some energy out of it. 145 at last check and moving northwest at 13. what's interesting is the track it takes could be very similar to what jose took, once hurricane and now tropical storm, gusts up to 40 miles per hour. this one may take a little closer path towards new york. some forecasts show hurricane force there. a high blocking pressure to the north so they have no place to go. we'll see where they end up. turning cloudy. low clouds, windy and cooler today many mostly cloudy by the coast. there could be some partly
6:18 am
sunny skies. this system already generated some rain, not much. we had some reports in ukiah, fort bragg and cloverdale. south of that, more clouds on the increase. you can see they are already flying in along the coast and they'll continue to increase. 60s on many of these temps. we are running warmer anywhere from 9 to 10 degrees warmer. northwest, west, southeast, west, i mean it's variable, all over the place. expected to continue throughout the day tonight into tomorrow. that's the best unit for any rain this evening. tomorrow morning, another slug of very cold air coming in. not a lot here but is some light rain. there goes the front by tonight. the cooler air begins to spill in here tomorrow morning, the coolest air. 70s, clear lake, 71.
6:19 am
some very cool readings here. a lot of 70s including brentwood and antioch, alameda at 70. no 80s here at all. so cooling will continue into tomorrow it and then a rebound on the weekend but very cool morning, i think, friday. >> and friday is the first day of fall, right? >> 1:01 in the afternoon, i believe. >> precisely. >> i believe it's 1:01. a new green initiative for san francisco schools coming up in minutes. what officials are doing today and how this will help the environment is. a lot of tough talk from president trump yesterday at the united nations, especially when it comes to north korea. i'm doug luzader in washington. more on that just ahead. san francisco police will

welcome back to mornings on two. we are talking about the endangered california condor, slowly making a comeback. >> slowly. >> 30 years after it was almost extinct. >> there are now 450 of those beautiful con corridor, including 270 in california, arizona, utah and mexico. the california condor is one of the biggest birds in the world, a wing span up to ten feet. in 1987, the last remaining 22 condors were captured, taken
6:23 am
to zoos to be protected and bred in captivity. biologists attribute the revival of the condors to that captive breeding program and also the reduced use of led ammunition near the feeding grounds. board of education committee will discuss phasing out fossil full by the year 2040 according to the fran examiner. if approved, it would go to the bull forward for a vote. that would mean that school district would use only renewable energy sources from heating to lighting to transportation and food service. most of the district's electricity comes from hydro electric generators in the hittachi system. the largest agriculture water district in the state is rejecting governor brown's controversial project to send water from the delta through
6:24 am
twin tunnels down to southern california. >> the westland water district is considered key to the $16 billion plan. it covers more than a thousand square miles of farmland in the central valley. if it had agreed to sign on to the project, it would contribute more than $3 billion to it. >> we don't really know the cost of this project. we have been told 16 billion for many years. we don't think that's the actual cost but even if that is 16 billion, if you look at financing over the course of 70 years, the cost is quite high. no one has a 70 year mortgage. >> the plan would feed water from north of the delta that and through two 35-mile long tunnels. the governor says the tunnel would provide a more reliable water supply for 2/3 of california residents and hundreds of farms. the state coastal commission ordered the welt
6:25 am
yeah owner of the san mateo coast to open that beach to the public. that is long legal battle. a san francisco appeals court ruled that venture capitalist veno cosola broke public law when he blocked access. the commission released a cease and desist yesterday. they ordered him to remove locked gate and take down all the signs on the property that say no trespassing and beach closed. this week, san francisco celebrates 30 years since the first women joined the city's first fire department. in 1980, they were allowed to join the department. they were dubbed feinstein's finer. dianne feinstein was the mayor at the time.
6:26 am
we talked to the p only african american in the department. outside of the memorable time where a group of guys said, we don't think you should be here. we don't think you can do the job. along those lines. i was like, okay. i'll show you. >> and she did show them. coming up on the 9, we'll have the complete story of feinstein's finest with a live interview of with fire chief joanne hayes' wife. hundreds in mexico have been killed in the earthquake. we'll show you the search for survivors coming up. and one man is dead after an early morning fire at this apartment building in oakland. we'll give you the latest on this investigation and tell you more about the disturbing scene witnessed by neighbors here. well well well, what have we here?

good morning to you. welcome back to mornings on 2. thank you for joining us. this is wednesday september 20th. i'm dave clark. >> and i'm pam cook. we have a lot to get to.
6:30 am
we continue to cover the rescue in mexico. one of the tragic scenes is at a school, 25 bodies found so far, awful of them children. search teams say they can hear sounds inside what used to be a three-story building but, now, they don't know if those noises are from victims trying to be found or just the rubble itself settling down on to itself. mexican civil defense officials say at least 217 people have died but there are fears that this number will continue to grow as search teams get further into the building that collapsed. there was one success story. you are looking at cheers from volunteers this morning. crowds of people waiting. a dog was pulled out of the debris alive. survivors say that a quirk in time made them more aware of
6:31 am
what to do. just two hours before the earth quick hit, there was a national drill to mark the 32nd anniversary of of a quick that killed 30,000 people. hurricane maria hit puerto rico as a category 4 storm. it is the strongest storm to hit puerto rico in more than 80 years. thousands had no power -- they are still without power from hurricane irma. now it's expected that entire island will lose power. there is concern about flooding and mudslide. it is estimated 11,000 people went to shelters to wait out the storm. >> oh, gosh. 6:31. time for more on that. let's check in with steve. buff been checking on the string of hurricanes rolling through. >> everyone is tired of it.
6:32 am
>> yeah. >> it may now be past san juan. it lost the radar side as you might imagine with 150 miles per hour winds. you can't place it anymore squarely than what it did, going right over puerto rico. some of that is category 4. wind gusts at 118 miles per hour. some of the rivers have just blasted past record levels. so storm surge, rainfall, wind damage continues here, once it exits puerto rico, it will go back out above warm water. there is a possibility it could track very similar to what jose just did and end up and the new england coast. breeze is picking u rain in
6:33 am
mendocino county. napa county, sonoma county, that should be the extent of it. this is not a strong system. 50s and 60s on the temp. best opportunity for rain tonight and that cool air settles in tomorrow. >> it's already cloudy. you are doubting me at 4:01. >> well, i want it to be not so hot. >> it will not be hot. >> thank you. that's all i really care about. this is a look at the commute approaching the richmond bridge. yes, you can see the clouds just like steve mentioned. the traffic is slow coming up from the toll plaza. driving on 80 westbound, going to be a 30-minute drive from the carquinez bridge. no major issues at the toll bridge. toll plaza, traffic is moving

6:35 am
building. fire swept through this apartment early this morning and for some reason, that man was not able to escape the flames. he did not have enough time to get out. the fire started just before 4:00 this morning at the complex on fairmont avenue which is right near interstate 580 on the harrison street exit. oakland firefighters arrived here and found the victim on the floor of his apartment. firefighters were able to keep the fire contained to that one unit where the victim lived. we spoke to a neighbor who did not want to show her face on camera. she woke up, heard screaming and outside her apartment, she saw her neighbor on fire and yelling for help. >> i heard a lot of yelling, like muffled warning, not argument yelling. i opened the door and he was engulfed in flames.
6:36 am
i went to get my fire extinguisher and woke my mom up and told her to get out and went to try to put the fire out but it was too hot for me. >> reporter: the man, i'm told, was in his 70s and lived by himself. there was one other person who was treated for smoke inhalation, but everybody else was okay. firefighters are trying to investigate the cause of this fire, trying to figure out how it started andity was that this person was not able to escape the flames early this morning, whether they had enough warning to be able to get up and get out of their apartment building. obviously, they did not. that is part of the investigation that will be going on here. >> just a horrific story. thank you, alex, for that update. time is now 6:36.
6:37 am
today, president trump meets with world leaders. but his big speech is still being talked b especially what he said about north korea. doug luzader has more from washington. >> i think it went very well. i said what i had to say. >> reporter: president trump leaving his big speech at the united nations as the reviews were just coming in. he had taken the podium moments earlier delivering an address that did not mince words, especially when it came to north korea. >> the united states has great strength and patience but if it is forced to defend itself or its ally, we will have no choice but to totally destroy north korea. >> north korea's delegation at the speech amounted to ainge is something note taker but will north korean korean nguyen take note himself because president trump singled him out using a relatively new nickname.
6:38 am
>> rocket man will be isolated. >> no, sir unsurprisingly, pundits were split. >> he was right to do that but then using the term rocket man made it look like our relations with north korea is a video game but this is serious business. >> it is clear that one u.s. administration after another has failed to contain the threat. was this speech just more rhetoric and empty threats? that is a question that kim jong-un may very well be asking himself this morning. than was doug luzader reporting. the president's schedule includes meetings with the king of jordan, the president of the palestinian authority and the u.k. prime minister, theresa may. police castro valley investigating a hate crime, racist graffiti was found on school property.

weapon. that student did not make any threat to school staff or the fellow classmates. a rookie sheriff deputy has now been fired by the san francisco sheriff. his gun was stolen from a rental car over the weekend, stolen from the trunk of a rental car. sheriff vickie henessey says that it appears that gun was not properly stored in a gun lock box which is required by department policy. now, a separate state law took effect this year requiring law enforcement officers to either secure their weapons in a lock box or in a trunk. >> perhaps, in firing this deputy, it sends a signal and a message that it won't be tolerated by the san francisco sheriff and their department. >> state senator jerry mill wrote that legislation following homicides in san francisco committed with guns stolen from federal agents including the deadly shooting of kate steinle in 2015. we'll update and overnight
