7:05 am
plywood. it's incredibly dangerous. by sunday, need to be done. wrap things up. friday and saturday, get things ready. >> and this is what the storm looks and sounded like as it passes the british virgin islands yesterday. going from tropical storm to hurricane. dorian then continued onto the u.s. virgin islands and the eastern part of puerto rico as a category 1 hurricane yesterday. it did cut some power outages in puerto rico and the u.s. but there was no major flooding and no major damage. the warning is that dorian is expected to strengthen and grow in size as it increases. the national hurricane center warns that it could make landfall anywhere from south florida to south carolina this neighborhood of labor day weekend. and could be hurricane -- category 3 hurricane status. back to you, gasia and dave. >> all right, allie. thank you. a judge may decide whether a man who is accused of viciously attacking a woman at her san francisco condo building could be released on

good morning, everyone. and welcome back to mornings on 2. it is thursday, august 29th. i'm mike mibach. >> and i'm gasia mikaelian. it's warmer out there than you'd expect it to be. >> we're also taking a look at this now. take a look. 4. category 4. no longer a 3. that would be right on the cusp. but the national hurricane center said it could reach category 4 by the time we get from sunday into monday. gasia is right. we want to throw this in there because it just got updated. so from 1 to 3 to 4. i've seen anywhere from cape canaveral to miami as far as any of the forecast model goes. this will change, i guarantee it, over the next couple of days. but now ramping it up to a category 4. looks to be right there at the edge of a category 3, category 4. 111 to 130 is 3.
8:02 am
131 to 155 is category 4. it was a little disorganized and weakened a little. that's that latest update. maybe reaching up the atlantic side of florida. 60s, 70s. warm lows, i'll say. 68, oakland. the city has not changed since 1:43 this morning. sfo hasn't either. san jose, concord. napa. everyone is really close. when you see temperatures the same on the coast, as they are out toward rio vista, tracy. 67, really warm temps. because the ocean temps have come up. that and inside the bay are really warm. the only forecast high that is above today, this is my forecast. is san francisco. at 70. the rest will be below. i mean, there's going to be cooler air coming in. inland temps will be below average. even though the highs are all above. if you have camping plans, travel plans, mountain biking, what have you. watch out for thunderstorms. not here, though. low clouds will burn off.
8:03 am
i think we all know the drill. but this is a big fog bank. still gusting at travis. and up and down the coast. plays into not only our weather but also heading down the coast. 60s, 70s. here's sal. >> steve, we do have traffic that is getting busier in some commute. getting lighter on others. 24 through lafayette. see some slowing here as you drive through the b.a.r.t. station. through the tunnel. no problems on highway 4 in the way of crashes. but we do have a lot of slow traffic on 4. 242. 680. all very slow down to the walnut creek interchange. and if you're driving on the richmond bridge, the traffic seems to be getting heavier as well. heavy late commute. almost a 50-minute drive on the carquinez bridge to the mcarthur maze drive. people are coming in a little later. remember, this evening is going to be a tough commute, getting out of the bay area. because of the holidays. people believe -- people begin, i should say, leaving on thursday. and tomorrow, of course, will
8:04 am
also be a big headed out of the bay area today. 8:04. >> we have new information on a story we first brought you at 6:15 this morning. about two dozen homeowners in danville are without water survey. this happened about 4:00 on franciscan drive. the town of danville and east bay mud, have been out cleaning out that area. officials say they do not believe any homes were flooded. they also identify a cause of the break. now back to dorian. that storm expected to get stronger as steve mentioned, possibly a category 4 as it gets closer to the state of florida. >> allie rasmus is live here. the warning is going out to just about everyone in florida to be prepared. >> the director warned this morning that this hurricane is not just a coastal storm. hurricane dorian is on track to bring strong winds and rain to much of the state of florida. possibly also the southern coast of georgia. st spoke after meeting with s meteorologist in miami.
8:05 am
he talked about how he's already deir clad a state -- declared a state of emergency in florida that could be impacted by this hurricane. >> one of the things that this allows us to do is to get more fuel into the gas stations. i know people are going and looking. we've heard reports of there being fuel shortages in places like brevard county. this executive order allows more of that fuel to come. it also allows us to mobilize the national guard. >> you can see in this picture, the so-called cone of the storm's path. hurricane dorian is growing in strength. it is expected to pass the northern bahamas. it could become a category 3 hurricane or larger by the time it reaches the mainland u.s. florida residents are heeding the warnings to be prepared. many already boarding up homes and businesses gathering materials for sandbags. people are also stock up on food, water and other emergency supplies. and the recommendation is that people in the storm's path should have enough supplies to
8:06 am
be self-sufficient and home bound without power for at least seven days. >> the georgia coast all the way down to the keys. all of florida really has to pay attention. we could see those impacts all over the state. and by the way, such an important point that i really want to make. please don't think this just coastal. we think about naso often. this is over the whole state. >> now, this is what hurricane dorian looked and sounded like as it turned over the u.s. virgin islands as a category 1 hurricane yesterday. it also brushed over the iron part of puerto rico. it did cause some power outages, but no major flooding and no major damage. the problem now, though, is even though dorian is expected to pass over the bahamas next, there is really nothing else in the hurricane's path until it hits florida. the hurricane director mentioned that it is a slow-moving storm right now, which means it's going to hover over those warm waters in the caribbean and grow in strength and size. mike and gassia, back to you. >> all right, allie. thank you for that.
8:07 am
now, the judge could discuss whether they man and woman should be released from jail. 25-year-old austin vincent. last week, vincent was arrested. in a separate incident of being with a man who threatened them back in february. he said he can prove that vincent, at that time, was down in southern california. now, if those charges are dropped, vincent could be released from jail. but he still faces charges for that attack on the woman outside the condo, along the embarcadero, earlier this month. >> a teacher at richmond high school, will be arraigned today, accused of sex scriems with -- crimes with a student who a minor. a p.e. teacher, facing eight counts of unlawful sexual intercourse on a minor and lewd and lacivious acts on a minor. an eight-hour standoff.

car ride. people who owned condos in that leaning millennium tower will soon get. >> some have reached a settlement with the tentative developer over that building. ktvu's cristina rendon to bring more. an agreement is close and in the process of being finalized. many in this luxury high-rise apartment. more than 200 workers are going to be compensated for the loss in value to their apartments. the exact amounts, though, are not being released. but the settlement would help pay for fixes and upgrades to the building. this is all following a lawsuit filed in february 2017, naming the transbay joint power authority and the millennium partners in dispute. it alleges millennium tower was built on mud and sand, rather than bedrock, which is much deeper in the ground. the suit also claims they knew about the tower sinking. and that further damage
8:11 am
sinking was caused by the center. the company that owns the development says it has made clear from the beginning that its top priority has been to address and resolve the conditions that caused the building's past problems. an engineering team also approved a $100 million project to fix the leaning tower, which was reportedly sunk 17 inches and is leaning since it was built inent 2009. the -- in 2009. it used pipe toss shore up that building. an attorney representing the homeowner says he hopes this is a lesson for future developers. in san francisco, cristina rendon, ktvu 2 fox news. some buildings could be off limits to students. the safety concerns they announced. and the fixes it will take to make the buildings secure. also, 101 years old. and living the life most people have for even a quarter of has age. we'll follow this north bay man for a round of golf. and here, staying sharp and

8:30 am
certainly maybe go back out, or renter on the -- reenter on the golf side. looks like something to consider. but right now, right on the border, category 3, category 4. caty 4 would have to be 131 miles per hour to 155. but the national hurricane center said it will come in. now, again the track is, i think it's going to be south that was track. at least right now. more towards maybe west palm or fort lauderdale. looks to be the consensus right now. they'll probably update this over the next couple of days. but from category 1 to category 4. and then going across florida. where it goes after that we'll have to wait and see. early next week. monday morning. when this comes on shore. to the east of puerto rico. there was heavy rain coming out there. now towards the bahamas. for here, it's all about the warm overnight lows. mid-60s, upper 60s for some of this fog bank.
