tv   Today in the Bay  NBC  November 1, 2010 5:00am-6:00am PST

6:00 am
it looks outstanding for this time of year. 40s and 50s for the moment, but by the afternoon, we are looking at mostly 70s from san jose to the trivalley and san francisco close to 70 and warming up more through the middle of the week.
6:01 am
coming up in a few minutes. >> a look at the monday morning commute. >> things are moving smoothly according to the normal plan for folks. plan on a little bit more of a delay and northbound 101 approaching a disabled vehicle. with flashing lights come a distraction. we see the slowing north of the 680 and 280 interchange. that's a typical pattern and expect them to follow the delay. north bay, petaluma northbound 101 at washington street and blocking a couple of lanes and adding to a slow down. no delays through novato and an eight-minute drive to the bridge both directions from the richmond side and you are close to the limit towards the toll
6:02 am
plaza. no metering lights yet, but this will start to crowded right about now. an idea of what we are talking about. the nimitz freeway and moving close to the limit. firefighters mopping up at a recycling center. a lot of smoke in the area near 101 and 10th street about 3:00 this morning. they managed to knock down the fire quickly, but not before it spread to the nightclub close by. no injuries were reported. game five was tonight in texas. live outside of san francisco's civic center plaza where the excitement and something else is building. bob? >> good morning to you, brend. last night after last night's
6:03 am
game, they are setting up the giants screen in civic center plaza. a jumbotron so the fans can come out here to catch game in the public gathering place. a similar set up provided during the world cup. the city is encouraging you to show up early to secure a spot. and vendors will be here selling food and drink, but there will be no alcohol allowed here. you won't be able to purchase it here. the giants are coming off the win against the rangers in which the rookie pitched the team in a 4-0 shutout against texas. historical for a couple of reasons. the rangers became the first team with the shutout twice since 1966. they lost 9-0 in game two and baumgartner at 21 years old became the fourth youngest to start and win in the world
6:04 am
series and the youngest ever to pitch at least six shutout innings. the giants could win it all tonight in game five of the series and what will amount to a rematch of game one with tim lincecum starting for the giants against cliff lee for the rangers. the first pitch is just before 5:00 tonight. if the giants were to win tonight and clinch the world series, you can imagine it would be a celebration here in san francisco. we called sfpd to find out what their plans would be for containing the crowds and as of yet, nothing has been announced not to suggest there not plans, but they haven't announced t. if there is a game six or game seven here in san francisco, they are warning people to beware of scams. there have been people taken with fraudulent ticks as much as $1,000 a pop. the only authorized places where you can buy world series tickets are from the team itself or stub
6:05 am
hub. live here in san francisco, today in the bay. >> even if the series does end tonight, giants fever will not end. you can find everything you want to know about the giant ogs our website, and watch raw video of the interviews with the players and lots more at developing news and learning more details on an attack on a catholic church in iraq. scott? 52 dead? >> 100 catholic iraqiys were being held hostage in that church when iraqi police raided it overnight. at least half of the hostages are now dead. not clear how they were killed. the group al qaeda in iraq claims responsibility. the pope this morning denouncing the hostage takers. there about 300,000 practicing catholics in iraq. saddam hussein cracked down on a
6:06 am
lot, but christianity was left unimpeded in his reign. we do know 52 out of 100 hostages are dead. today in the bay's chris sanchez is at the headquarters with more. >> let's start by saying poll numbers are only accurate if the folks who say they will vote get out and vote. generally in our state, the poll has to have about 60% to predict a true victory. the latest field poll, that being said gives democrat jerry brown a lead over republican meg whitman and in the california senate race got a bit too close for comfort for barbara boxer. she looks to have a lead over republican hopeful carly fiorina who is out of the hospital. she was being treated for an
6:07 am
infection. to the big propositions you will find tomorrow, proposition 23 would suspend california's new green house emissions. that is trailing. 48 people surveyed oppose and 33% support until the economy improves. they think it will cost jobs. 19% of people are undecideded on this one. prop 25 which will make passing a budget easier. that would require a simple majority instead of 2/3 to vote. 48% of people say they would support that. 31% oppose it. 21% say they are still undecided. changing the vote to a simple majority doesn't change the 2/3 majority that is necessary to change taxes. obviously a very big talker in the election and it appears to be trailing in the polls this morning. today in the bay's christie
6:08 am
smith will have more on that coming up in about 10 minutes. >> thank you very much, chris. democrats are bracing for republican take over of the house and senate. a new nbc "wall street journal" poll is out this morning showing recent republican momentum continuing. 6 in 10 voters say the country is off track. president obama's approval numbers are down, but he is more popular than both parties and the tea party combined. congressman john boehner could be the next house speaker. over half of likely voters will vote republican tomorrow. two weeks ago democrats held the edge. they need 39 seats to win the house and analysts predict they will win 50 to 65 seats. count on nbc bay area news for coverage. at 8:00 p.m., we will start coverage on 11-2 and comcast

6:10 am
commute. a live look at the bridge shows you one of them. the fog. it's an issue along the commute heading over the water for the golden gate bridge. no major delays through the area, but we will follow it as the volume picks up. a map because i can't show you the shot from san francisco to the bay bridge because of that fog. we see a smooth drive heading towards the toll plaza. no problems with an 18-minute drive and the volume increasing. that's after 6:00 where we see things pick up. we saw this happen about 45 machines ago and almost an hour for the slow down to start over towards horizon lane. getting a breakthrough pittsburgh and bay point. no problem for 680 and 24. here's 580. slowing continues. now 18 minutes out of the pass and speeds closer to 40 and 50, but the blip of red on the right is where the speeds are dipping down.
6:11 am

6:15 am
shift in continues. good morning, christie. >> good morning. the polls show the shift has been happening over the course of the campaign and it's slipping a point or two overtime. still support is highest here in the bay area. you will find signs supporting it in downtown oakland, home to the cannibis college and also strong with voters under 40 years old. prop 19 is the state initiative that would legalize marijuana and you can look at it in two ways. opponents say as voters get more details, they support it as a concept and think there is a better way. supporters say it's a tough subject to even ask a person about because they may be reluctant to tell a stranger they support legalizing pot and it could be much higher when they were questioned by an automated voice rather than a live person.
6:16 am
49% give them a thumbs down. of those poled, 42% say yes. in july the numbers were 48% against. in september 49% were in favor. those with the field poll say opinions tend to shift on big issues that get a lot of media attention, especially when the election date draws near. reporting live in oakland, christie smith today in the bay. >> thank you very much, christie. >> a stunning claim from british researcher who is claim alcohol is more dangerous to your health than crack cocaine and heroin. the british journal released the study and graded 20 drugs with 100 being the most dangerous. alcohol ranked first with a score of 72. heroin, crack cocaine and crystal meth coming out in the top five, but much lower than 72. a panel of experts put alcohol at the top and said it does the most harm to the people who use it as well as others around
