5:04 am
all of them wearing masks, gloves and black clothing. in the south bay an eighth grade teacher is out of the classroom after he got arrested for an alleged road rage robbery. what happened next, though, was much more shocking. police say they found a loaded handgun inside the teacher's satchell in the classroom yesterday. charles so was taken into custody. he was wanted in connection with a road rage incident and robbery in san jose. the school district only learned ate the allegations yesterday afternoon and that so cleared background and fingerprint checks as recent as august 17th. >> there's nothing in the record to show there was anything untoward or anything we should worry about. that's another issue that we would like a little clarity on because it's troubling. >> the 35-year-old teacher was booked into santa clara county jail on two felony charges including robbery and possession of a firearm at a school. it's a new normal in california. wildfires start earlier and burn bigger and longer than fires in
5:05 am
recent years. cal fire reports the number of wildfires so far this year is about 9% higher than average. it's not a big difference, but these fires have burned more than five times the average acreage and this map shows where the wildfires are burning right now including the largest fire ever in california, the mendocino complex. firefighters expect full containment on the mendocino complex on saturday. we're not even a year past the north bay wildfires which rank among the most destructive and deadliest in state history. the impact still being felt in wine country where businesses have seen a drop in tourists. abc 7 news reporter wade freeman went to healedsburg a community struggling to recover. >> reporter: empty glasses, waiting tables, they're a strange sight during tourist season. >> it's never this quiet at noon. >> reporter: the blame? >> the misperception? that wine country is on fire and we're not. >> reporter: hotels, restaurants, tasting rooms all report a drop in business down

5:11 am
cut. >> reporter: these skyline golfers have known for a couple days their team would be spared the budget ax. today they found out that all ten sports threatened with elimination this year would be okay. >> i feel like high school sports gives us like a sense of community that we don't have in regular education. >> reporter: outside donations including $250,000 from the oakland raiders helped save the day. raiders owner mark davis a product of oakland public schools told us why in an exclusive interview by phone today. >> after school sports were very important to me and kept me out of more trouble than i got in. i've always felt an affection for that. we decided to do the $250,000 to get this thing going and it's based on, you know, the raiders are born in oakland and it's always going to be part of our dna. >> reporter: an earlier anonymous $35,000 donation helped save three sports including girl's golf and girl's lacrosse, but several other sports were left on the bubble
5:12 am
until the silver and black stepped in including wrestling, swimming, boys golf, boys tennis, boys volleyball, and girls badminton. if you notice several girls sports were in jeopardy so did davis. >> i think the fact that there was such a disproportionate amount of women's sports cut stood out to me in this situation. felt that it was a great thing to help with them. >> reporter: even this girl's golf coach was impressed. >> speaking as a 49er fan, i had to kind of take a deep breath and give thanks to the oakland raiders for making that donation, but because of them, these girls are at the course right now. >> that was eric thomas reporting. many californians love their in-n-out or used to. in-n-out or used to. >> a new app could

5:18 am
whistle and they've gone to the bullhorn. >> reporter: a live report from florida at 7:00 a.m. with your "gma" first look abc news, miami. a santa monica firm with help from the usgs is working on an app that could give feel a few seconds warning before an earthquake hits. >> the quake alert app gave them a 12 seconds head's up in southern california. the app can tell the expected arrival time of the earthquake, distance from the epicenter and the expected intensity and uses real-time data from nearly 900 usgs sensors placed along several different west coast fault lines and sends early warning alerts to user cell phones. >> the people are concerned about the big one and that is loaded into here, where we have the san andreas from the salt and see and in l.a. if we run that, you can see we get roughly about 50 plus seconds of warning for that scenario. >> the alert gives emergency
5:19 am
crews a jump on the shaking and right now the app is still in a beta testing phase with a goal of releasing publicly next year. this would be amazing if we could get this done. >> we were talking the other day about usgs being able to predict three seconds for the l.a. quake, so a 12-second or 50-second would be kind of what we've been working toward. >> any little bit helps. >> you have to -- i think the parameters have to be understood the fact that the farther you're away from the epicenter the more lead time you will get. the three seconds in l.a. or the epicenter was here but the three seconds was way over here. if you're at the epi center you're getting no lead time at all. >> sure. >> which is unfortunate because that's where most of the energy is and most of the damage is going to be. yes, it's great that it works for everybody else farther away. if we can somehow predict before it erupts that will help more. i like what they're doing, don't get me wrong. >> any steps towards an alert system would be nice when they really have a big quake. >> i just want to make sure people understand if you're on
5:20 am
the epicenter you're still not getting any warning. if you are away you will get warning. that's great. we need that. i'm glad we're seeing that. a lot of smart people working on that. hopefully they can get that figured out also. it's about 5:20. let's take a look and show you what's going on. you are never more than seven minutes away, san rafael, comfortable highs again today as we stave off summer heat for one more day. mostly sunny this afternoon after that cloudy start. clouds will come back tonight, areas of drizzle and the extended back to summer warmth. not seeing anything extreme. just kind of back to average. a look at the cloud cover this morning and the drizzle. and you can see most of that back to the bay if not the coast. the bay will have a few clouds around but not going to be as sunny as yesterday. by 3:00 we're pretty much clear everywhere. few pockets of sunshine at the coast and see by 7:00 the march east is beginning. temperatures down in the south bay we should be about 82 in san jose, 77 today. the 80s around morgan hill and
5:21 am
gilroy. everybody else low to mid 70s. low to mid on the peninsula today. redwood city your high should be about 82. you're about 73. millbrae your high around 74, you're at 70. san francisco is close to average, 69. your high will be 68. up in the north bay we're about ten degrees cooler with mid to upper 70s. along the east bay shore, two to four degrees cooler than average. comfortable, look at that, mid 70s there. as we move inland this is where we're seeing the biggest drop in temperatures, 80s and 90s, we're in the upper 70s to low 80s. my temperatures for tonight and cooler than this morning. how about the weekend. so we know it's going to get a little warmer tomorrow and again saturday. then we'll see a touch of 90s sunday and monday inland, 80s around the bay but still that free air conditioning at the coast. mid 60s for the holiday weekend. hey, alexis. >> good morning, mike. really not too much has changed here. we still have our sig alert, our biggest issue of the morning is the shooting investigation. chp has a full closure of northbound 680 between capitol
5:22 am
expressway up to berryessa. that's where you will be able to re-enter the roadway i should say. unfortunately kind of past the initial estimate of when that could reopen, so 5:00 a.m. that did not happen and here we are getting further into the commute. so far looking like less than ten-minute delay right now on northbound 680 but you're going to have to exit and use capitol avenue for an alternate, king road or stick to the 101 corridor to get around the closure. hopefully we will have an update from matt keller live at the scene for us. bay bridge toll plaza is filling in. so far we have not gotten official word that the metering lights are on. a quick check of drive times it has been quiet everywhere else. 44 minutes out of the central valley but no delays southbound 680 out of dublin or northbound 85 through the southbound. >> thanks. >> thanks.
