tv Today in the Bay NBC July 29, 2013 4:30am-5:01am PDT
new rules in effect at sfo as a direct result of the asiana airlines crash. the unprecedented move the airport is making this morning. also we have new video overnight of riots at a surfing event in southern california. we'll let you know what we learn from police. just one week left until another possible b.a.r.t. strike. negotiations at a standstill. let's take it outside live from the south bay. that's a look before the sunrises in san jose. get ready to start the workweek. it's monday, july 29. this is "today in the bay." here we go.
time to let the good times roll. 4:30 right now everybody. good to see you. i'm jon kelley. >> i'm laura garcia-cannon. let's first check the forecast with meteorologist christina loren. >> good morning laura and jon, of course to you at home. getting into the last few days of july and temperatures are going to tumble. going in the opposite direction you might normally think. 59 degrees to start in sunnyvale. 57, good morning to you in livermore. wheel have your full forecast in a few moments. first want to check that drive. >> good morning, good morning. as you would imagine, the san mateo bridge moving smoothly. we'll look west. you can make out the high-rise lights across the bay as well. the map shows you not a lot of construction on the roads. that's pretty typical of a monday morning on a sunday. we have a little slowing that shows up north 280. reports of a small brush fire off the on-ramp. we have fire crews heading out there. we're tracking it as well.
i have seen slowing pop up in the last few through downtown. i'll track this for you. send it back to you. 4:31. the faa taking action in the wake of the deadly asiana crash. we have details on the change and why it happened. >> reporter: there are two ways a plane can land on a clear day at sfo, the pilot can do it visually or use instruments to guide the aircraft down to the runway. right now because of construction, one of those landing instruments called glide slopes are not available on two of sfo's main runways, including the one intended to be used by asiana when it crashed july 6. the instruments are expected to be back in service until late august. until then the faa is requesting foreign carriers to use another type of electronic help, through gps. we spoke to an ntsb official who says the move by the faa is extremely unusual.
>> i think it's very unusual given the fact that it's not isolated to one particular carrier, but currently involves multiple air carriers that they've classified as a foreign carrier flying into the united states. >> since the crash, the faa says it's noticed an increase in the number of so-called go-arounds at sfo when the pilots are using visual approaches to land. in these cases pilots have to abort landing and circle back around. today the faa says it is looking into an aborted landing by ava air on july 23. the plane was landing at ffo and the plane came in too low. >> all training programs at all airlines are not created equally. what we do with the legacy and regional carriers, the standards the faa sets for the pilot training doesn't necessarily reflect everything that takes place in a foreign air carrier
training program. >> reporter: kimberly tere, "today in the bay." we have new video to show you this morning at riots at a surfing competition down in southern california. these are protests down in huntington beach last night after the close of the u.s. open surfing competition. it apparently broke out after a fist fight between a couple people. that led to others selling bottles and tipping over things. witnesses say police had to use teargas and not-lethal projectiles to finally clear people out. police say they had things under control within about an hour and a half. "the l.a. times" reporting at least time people injured, nine of them arrested. the man accused of beating and killing another man inside the great mall shopping center will be in court. nathaniel man jet is expected to enter a plea in conjenection wi
the motor of carla car loek ka. the two men entered the sports authority at the same time on june 7th. at some point they separated and one man got a baseball bat to kill the other. police have not said what the motive for that attack may have been. the trial against the peninsula student accused of trying to rape his teacher at knife point is expected to start today. police say david velasques approached the teacher in the parking lot in january of last year. he reportedly tried to force her into a car when another teacher came along and scared him off. he has pleaded not guilty. the man accused of stealing cars in a number of california counties including some here in the bay area is expected back in court the day. james rollston who also goes by the name demetree storm has pleaded not guilty to nine charges including burglary and auto theft.
he's being held on warrants. a san jose police recovering after a crash sends him to the hospital on saturday night. the officer spotted a wanted man driving near 11th and east santa claire streets downtown. at some point during that pure suit both cars ended up jumping a curb and a patrol car slammed right into a tree. the officer suffered a concussion and back pain. the suspect ended up running off. officers did a house-to-house search but so far have had no luck finding him. a settlement has been awarded to a palo alto woman whose home and business were destroyed in a plane crash. the woman who ran a day-care center out of her home reached a settlement with tesla motors. a twin engine cessna crashed into a neighborhood and destroyed several homes. all three tesla motor employees on board were killed. no one on the ground was hurt. this marks the fourth out of five lawsuits against tesla that
have been settled. time is 4:36. let's get a check with christina loren to find out what's happening outside. >> it's going to be a really comfortable afternoon. good morning laura and jon, of course to you at home. mondays can be tough. we want to make it easy for you, let you know what you have facing you once you head out the front door this morning. not much just yet. we have thick fog that we're expecting to develop in the next couple hours. significant drizzle as well. possibly measurable drizzle. it's going to be a murky day in san francisco. we're starting out in the upper 50s. temperatures today won't be able to climb all that much with limited sunshine, especially right at the immediate coast. highs are going to work out like this, with clearing expected not until 2:00 p.m. it's going to be kind of a gray day in san francisco. 58 degrees. that's it for you today. feeling more like fall than the last couple days of july. 70 in fremont, 75 in san jose. your full forecast in a few
moments. let's see if there's anything going on the roads with mike. >> i have a warning for folks in palo alto. actually you know about this. look at this bright, bright sign. this is southbound side facing this sign. that's about the biggest distraction as you're passing by the ikea and ravens wood shopping center. i showed the earlier shot of the san mateo bridge which is looking really good as well. over near the bay bridge we have a smooth approach. our sensors are reading just below 60 miles per hour across the upper deck. 55 across the s curve. nothing unusual on the approach. the 15 is wrong. let me get rid of that. we'll get out to the live shot and show you what it's like. maybe it is 15 miles per hour for one of those cars but it doesn't really affect the rest of the cars. we do have construction between the coliseum and downtown. we i'll correct the typo. >> a real man living up to his
mistake ts. time is running out in the contract talks between b.a.r.t. and its unions. if there's no deal in place by this time next monday, we could be dealing with a commute nightmare. negotiations continue to be stalled over employee pay raises. the mercury news reporting b.a.r.t. workers are the highest paid transit officers in california with an average pay of $76,000 last year. b.a.r.t. workers say their wages have been flat for the past four years. the next talks that are scheduled are set for tomorrow. it's 4:39. new accusations this morning against cupertino's apple, the watch dog that's accusing the tech company of bad labor practices next. plus, now hiring. we'll tell you about the big time dot com that's adding jobs, including more in northern california. after years of stalls, mid east peace talks expected to formally resume in washington today. a preview of what we're likely
this at the bay bridge approach, the toll plaza there. looks thing something going on at the bottom of the screen. i don't know if it's just slow traffic. >> looks like a truck with a trailer kind of slow. >> metering lights certainly cannot be on this early. >> 4:43. three former penn state administrators set to appear in court on charges they covered up sexual abuse allegations. those three officials, former university president graham spanier. retired vice president gary schultz and former athletic director tim curley. they're all accused of turning a blind eye when accusations of sex abuse surfaced against convicted molester jerry sandusky. all three say they were not aware they involved any sex acts. an armed bandit stoem $53 million worth of diamonds and other jewels from a luxury hotel
