12:02 pm
this is over the whole state. >> reporter: this is what the storm looked and sounded like as it churned over the u.s. virgin islands as a category one hurricane. it brushed over the eastern part of puerto rico and caused power outages, but no major flooding and no major damage. dorian is a slow moving hurricane, which means it will hover over the warm waters in the caribbean and continue to grow in size and strength over the next few days. for anyone travelling to florida in the caribbean this labor day weekend, most major airlines have announced that they will be waiving rebooking and cancellations fees for passengers. allie rasmus, ktvu, fox 2 news. we're taking a look at a live satellite projection of the path of dorian. let's bring in our meteorologist mark tamayo. i know you're tracking the storm. >> reporter: it continues to move away from puerto rico strengthening and approaching the united states, especially florida as we head toward the weekend. here is the satellite and the radar. still a category one hurricane. the latest details on this
12:03 pm
system right now. winds at 85 miles an hour moving to the northwest at 13 miles an hour. current position is 221 miles north, northwest of san juan, puerto rico. here is the forecast track. we're showing you a red line. it looks explicit showing you where the hurricane could be going. there is still a lot of uncertainty. as you can see the entire state of florida, kind notify the area of possibility with the track and the red line might be shifting a bit. what we do know is this will continue to strengthen right now to a category one. could be a category 3 tomorrow. that makes this a major hurricane. then on track to approach the bahamas, especially in the northwestern bahamas. as far as the uncertainty with the forecast track, we're showing you different forecast models. each of those represented with a line. they all seem to converge here in florida as we head toward later sunday and into monday. while there is some uncertainty with the forecast track, there is a lot of confidence that the hurricane will strengthen. part of that is because the

water temperatures, the sea surface temperatures are very warm. in fact, these are the current estimates along the path of what is now a category one hurricane. those temperatures in the 80s, around 83 to 84 to 85 degrees. this will continue to be a big story over the next few days as we head into the weekend and hopefully we'll add more specifics to the forecast track as we prepare toward friday and into the weekend. guys? >> mark, thank you. new this hour, a man accused of attacking a woman at her san francisco condo building will remain behind bars. >> a judge ordered austin vincent to remain in custody without bail. christina randone jones us from the hall of justice with new developments. >> reporter: good afternoon to you, frank and gasia. the judge made the ruling an hour ago to keep austin vincent without bail. he was visibly upset. he walked out of the courtroom cursing at the judge and continued to yell in the backyard.
12:05 pm
i do want to mention that the judge today is different than the original judge. this judge watched the video earlier this month and heard about another case against vincent. he has been in custody last week since he was accused by victims in a separate case of being the man who threatened them with a knife back in february, but today the judge dismissed that case after evidence shows vincent was in a substance abuse program in huntington beach at the time of the incident. still, the d. a.'s office argued that vincent is a threat to public safety if released and the judge ultimately agreed. >> we feel very strongly that detaining him at this juncture is the right approach. we do that through the lenses of the public safety. >> we're happy that mr. vincent is in jail and detained pending trial. we think that everyone in san
12:06 pm
francisco who has seen the video knows that he poses a danger to the public and we're glad this judge has seen it now. we're still upset and disappointed that it took so long for thisecision to come. it really highlights the problem with the criminal justice in san fan and the city's inability to keep us safe. >> i'm obviously disappointed by the court's decision today. jail is not an environment where people receive the proper treatment that they need. mr. vincent was receiving the treatment and was having his under lying needs and issues addressed. the bottom line is he is going to return to our community at some point. >> reporter: his attorney argued that his client's rap sheet represents a minimal criminal history. prior to the arrest on the case that has been dismissed, he was in a case management program where he was getting help and wearing a gps monitor but ultimately the judge says there is clear and convincing evidence that less adequate measures to detain vincent are a threat to
12:07 pm
public safety. the d. a.'s office read a statement from the woman who was attacked in that case along the embarcadero outside of her apartment. she wrote a letter and in the statement she said she couldn't come to court today. she apologized to the judge for that, but that she can't face her attacker right now. this incident has been very traumatizing to her. she also wrote, i'm not a lawyer, but i understand the law should protect innocent people and keep them safe. we're live in san francisco, christina rendon, ktvu, fox 2 news. happening later today, a teacher at richmond high school is being arraigned. he is accused with sex crimes with a minor. israel lopez is a teacher facing many charges. his bail is set at $400,000. lopez has been teaching p. e. in the west contra costa school district since 2017. in eastern contra costa
