development. >> it's a hub of activity. the department of transportation is there, a number of people who work there, the marine barracks there. a lot of people arriving for work so i can't imagine the scene that unfolded once police figured out what was going on and entered the building to try to support the people who work there and try to track down this gunman. >> as we listen to the wrc, the nbc station in washington, d.c. they are sending cameras, we continue to follow the developments on this breaking news story. a gunman on the loose at the d.c. navy yard after a shooting, at least one victim, the rest of the facility locked down and of course marla, we'll continue to follow this as it develops. >> scott, in the last minutes the navy just tweeted outnew press release, it says that yes, confirming this happened at 8:20 eastern time, it says there is one confirmed injury, emergency personnel are on the scene and also a shelter in place has been
ordered, issued for the navy yard personnel. it's also saying in this press release as we give you now a live look at the scene in washington, d.c., at the navy yard, you can see plenty of emergency personnel on scene. it's such a new scene that emergency personnel are arriving as we speak. this naval sea systems command headquarters is the workplace for about 3,000 people. so this shelter in place potentially affecting as many as 3,000 people. you can see police whipping on by as this active shooter scene is very real on the east coast. this is breaking news just happened about 5:20 our time. the reporter on scene for our affiliate as he tries to put this, the pieces together. wow, plenty of emergency crews. >> absolutely. tense moments. we'll continue covering this and have information from the navy yard in washington, d.c. reportedly so far one person

dead, 1200 people have not been heard from, many likely because phone and internet service is out in many areas. 1500 homes are destroyed by all of the water and more than 17,000 others are damaged. >> meantime, volunteers pouring into the flood zone trying to help out. bob redell has that side of the story including a handful of volunteers from here in the bay area. >> reporter: good morning. correct, right now it is just a handful, just three red cross volunteers from the bay area who headed to colorado to help those people. this is just the beginning of their response so it's quite possible there could be more people from our area headed to that disaster zone to help out. it was a matter of waiting for the call telling what is needed. a sense of what it's like in the areas, what was striking to her,
just how packed the shelters are, not just with families but lots of pets as well. >> mostly right now the conversation is about loss, loss of possessions and concern about pets was one of the big topics. people are concerned about whether they will be able to go back to their home. and when the roads will be open again. >> reporter: some people were forced to evacuate so quickly they literally had to run out, they didn't have time to grab their identification. if you are thinking of trying to help out these people who are victimized by the floods in colorado they do not need food, they do not need items, they don't have a place to store that, they are asking for donations, cash. reporting live, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> 6:05. we'll have continuing coverage of that flooding in colorado all morning long. coming up at 6:45 we'll go live

crews on hand. this reportedly happened at 8:20 a.m. eastern time, about an hour ago. one person confirmed injured. emergency personnel on that scene and a shelter in place has been ordered for that navy yard personnel. the navy seal command headquarters, this is a work place for about 3,000 people there. and give you an idea of what happens in this area, they engineer, build, buy and they maintain ships, submarines and combat systems that meet the fleet's current and future operational requirements. an active shooter on scene. the police and emergency personnel there currently searching for that active shooter, one person reported ìáhp &hc& we'll continue to monitor this. and bring you new information as it comes into our newsroom. >> here is a look at our other top stories. rescue helicopters are flying again in colorado trying to reach more than 1,000 people stranded. at least five people have died in the waters there.
rain and mudslides wiped out phone service in many areas so families have no way of communicating. >> less than three months since the crash of flight 214 at sfo first responders get hands on training to help kiel with airplane fires. crews will work with the u.s. marine corps in a disaster response exercise that will take place today, drills, they will include airplane fires, extracting pilots and rescuing victims. >> salvage crews in italy stay the operation to right the "costa concordia" is going smoothly. this was the scene a few minutes ago. you can see the water line slowly rising. the ship has been resting on a reef since january 2012. >> also new this morning there could be potential unity in the strained relations between north and south korea. for the first time since april, south korean workers crossed over into north korea to reopen
kaesong industrial pork. the two countries did agree to reopen this on a trial basis. the north seems softened its tone after threatening south korea with nuclear attacks earlier this year for what it calls joint exercises with the united states. >> just in, u.n. inspectors say there is clear and convincing evidence chemical weapons were used in syria to attack civilians. a report on the investigation is being made public this morning. the report was compiled by a chemical weaponnessspection team investigating whether poisonous gas was used on an attack. a separate commission is investigating who was responsible for those attacks. >> secretary of state john kerry in paris this morning talking to u.s. allies about how to put an end to syria's chemical weapon program, meeting with:m top officials from france, britain,
turkey and saudi arabia. over the weekend u.s. and russian officials reached an agreement to tore syria's chemical weapon program. >> it's 6:17, looking more likely a bay area woman will be the head of the federal reserve. >> that is correct. scott mcgrew, that would be an historic appointment if the president chooses janet yellen. >> it's if. that's looking more likely. the president clearly wanted to appoint former treasury secretary, former harvard president larry summers to the post but summers withdrew his name from nomination over the weekend. summers was incredibly well quauled but many were of prepared to stand him away of his confirm agency. janet yellen the strong choice for many in the liberal wing of the democratic party. her appointment would make
history which is perhaps one of the reasons that president obama has been resisting. the position is not supposed to be political or historic. she is qualified, the vice chairman of the fed already, she is former san francisco fed governor, former professor at the hoft school of business, the dean there weighing in. >> she sympathizes, a terrific thinker, very clear minded. all the judgment i've seen over the many years has been terrific. >> wall street very enthusiastic about the idea of janet yellen as the next fed charm. she is considered a dove, that is she will continue some of the policies that have caused easy money to flow into the markets. the same sort of policies we're seeing. summers was seen as someone who would draw down those more quickly, more worried about
inflation. as far as easy money, janet yellen is wall street's pick. >> sounds like a great candidate. thank you. it's 6:19. christina loren is back and one of those days you want to break out of work and go out and chill out. >> most every day. >> good point. i guess the weather can help. >> seriously now. you got to work, you got to work for the weekend. we have a beautiful weekend shaping up. it's the last weekend of summertime. half summer, half fall. saturday the last full day of summer. sunday we kick off the autumnal equinox. temperatures comfortable. divide the bay area in half. bay bridge, north of it plenty of 50s to start the day. lots of 60s in the south bay. mid-60s in san jose. we stop the clock at 8:00 a.m. at that point low clouds span inland. mostly cloudy start. by noon a mostly sunny finish.
comfortable readings and cooler tomorrow. then the interesting weather arrives as we get into the end of the week and the first weekend of summer. we're talking about the potential for showers and the best chance now looks like in the north bay, i think the best chance is going to be over the course of saturday to sunday. the models are differentiating what they think. what i think and i've been looking at everything is late saturday night into early sunday morning we're going to get maybe a tenth of an inch of rain with showers as far south as san jose. otherwise, a bit of a roller coaster ride. 84 today in livermore, 85 in -- excuse me, 84 degree, trying to get to the breaking news. save you time. sorry. ahead of myself. 85 inland, bay side 77, 68 at the coast, basically livermore and gilroy about the same temperature as we head throughout the day. here is the deal. we're going to drop like a rock tomorrow. and from 79 degrees on tuesday, shooting right back up to 90 degrees by wednesday.
mid 90s for thursday. and then showers move in. we have a slight chance friday t best chance saturday into sunday. >> we'll take heert because we have the backup at the bay bridge. all of your lanes are backed up past west grand avenue. normally that's the worst we were at but look at the maps. the east coast, that moves the volume is starting to build. it's approaching the caldecott tunnel. highway 24 is jammed because one of your westbound have two tunnels open. only one is open right now because the middle tunnel has no power. they had to shut it down for safety. this caused a backup all the way over through orinda to the caldecott tunnel. you saw the backup at the toll plaza. it's huge. southbound 880 also a big backup in through union city, the dumbarton bridge more clouded.
over toward thornton. chp says industrial the sigalert and don't know when they will open the lanes. it's slow down to mallory. stevenson, you're okay into the south bay. some might be bailing instead of heading to the dumbarton bridge head to the san mateo bridge which is moving and not a big deal. that's a pressure for 92. if you have to said south 880 into the mess. looking at the south bay, smooth flow into the south bay. traffic flows nicely. north 88 and 101 showing a little bit of slowdown. so that's a nice gentle start. back to you. >> 6:22. coming up we'll update you on breaking news in washington, d.c. an active shooter reported in the navy yard out there. it's at the navy seal system's command headquarters about 3 thou people work in that building. so far one confirmed injury and
emergency personnel on scene. a shelter in place order. >> this is in washington, d.c. and the u.s. navy just tweeted out that more base police are entering this building. you can see s.w.a.t. teams on scene. approximately 3,000 people work in this building. so, very much an active scene as police and s.w.a.t. crews look for this active shooter.
updating you on breaking news in washington, d.c. a very tense and active scene out there. active shooter reported in the# navy yard in washington, d.c. this happened at about 8:20 eastern time so just about an hour ago. so far one confirmed injury, multiple shots have happened there. emergency personnel they are on scene. they have put a shelter in place order that has been issued for all navy personnel out there. >> about 3,000 people work in this building that has been issued the shelter in place so it's affecting thousands of people. initially when this call came in at 8:20 eastern time it was just that three shots had been fired. one person injured. but now we hear there may be more shots fired from our affiliate in washington, d.c. that's not confirmed yet. but you can see the s.w.a.t. teams arriving. they have been arriving since the scene broke out more than an

we're hearing new reports of shots fired, possibly an officer down. what can you tell us? >> reporter: we heard reports of an officer down, possibly shot in both legs being removed. this is from one of our colleagues on the scene. they are being moved back now because police told them they were in the hot zone and they did not know where the shooter s. let me specific what we know and think we know. initially about just under an hour ago, over an hour ago, there were reports there was a shooter, a lone gunman, possibly armed with a rifle and a shot gun, who entered building 197 at the navy yard. this is a huge area south of here in southeast d.c. where a number of naval operations and law enforcement operations are headquartered. we got reports there were multiple shots fired, maybe as many as three, at that point, and that one person was down. since then our crews on the scene and we have another on the
way, tell us that there may have been two people inside and one on the roof who was shot, possibly including the officer. and they have also found a victim nearby several blocks away. there is a metro station nearby, one of the entrances has been shut down, it's been closed. there is an elementary school nearby. that as you might imagine is on lockdown. for the thousands of people who work in the navy yard they have a shelter in place order in effect. essentially they want everyone to stay put. at last word they didn't know where the shooter was. >> tracie potts, thank you for that update. again on a fluid situation out there. we'll continue to monitor this story all morning long and bring you updates as it happens. at least one person down, possibly an officer has been shot. we'll continue monitoring this and bring you information as we get it in. >> back to our developing story in colorado where a major air rescue is planned today in

security guards. d.c. city police confirm one of their officers has been shot. we have no word of fatalities, again this is a shooting a lone gunman we understand, shooting at 8:20 eastern time. so about an hour and a half ago. at the naval shipyard. a lot of the news crews have been moved away from the scene because authorities not sure where this shooter is. schools in the area in lock down, active scene as you see, fire trucks as well. this is really, jon and marla, a big facility. it has a huge brick wall. we heard of some fleeing over the wall. 3,000 work there. they call at shipyard. it used to be. it's military offices in the southeast corner of washington near the department of transportation, several schools in the area as well as well as naval command. we continue to monitor this, again the numbers are fuzzy.
but we know there are victims, at least one of them is a police officer and the gunman is still at large. >> a lot of action out there with the emergency crews in force. scott mentioned what this is used for. this is located about, give you perspective, about three miles from the capitol area so again, there's enforcements put up. we'll continue monitoring the situation. again, a gunman, armed shooter is on the loose, authorities continue to pursue them. we'll continue covering this and have it as soon as we we get into the newsroom. >> now to the developing story in colorado where a major air rescue is planned in boulder county. crews are asking stranded resident there is to use white sheets, reflective mirrors, flares and signal fires to alert pilots to their location. teams are taking advantage of clear weather in the forecast today. >> it has been a deadly
