well. >> while traffic is getting started to build for the tri valley 580, i think i saw another camera with traffic stopping on the san mateo bridge. we'll show that to you in a second. a live look at the bay bridge, you remember the light installation, off for about a hour but looks pretty on this friday the 1th. this is "today in the bay." >> good morning on this friday thank you for joining us. i'm sam brock. >> i'm kris sanchez. laura garcia-cannon is off. napa health officials are dealing with five cases of the highly contagious liver disease hepatitis a and health officials are taking steps to warn people who might have been exposed. bob redell is outside the westin hotel in napa where two of the infected people worked.
5:01 am
how concerned to people need to be? >> reporter: the napa county health tent is issuing a warn who visited the la toque hotel between february 29th -- 25th. it's a contagious liver disease as you mentioned. if you wonder why the health department is issuing this warning weeks later there is an incubation period for hep a. now is the time anyone who contracted it back then would show symptoms like abdominal pain, nausea or jaundice. >> we wanted to be sure that people who might have been served by one or the other of those individuals during the time that they might have been shedding virus are aware there's a potential risk. it's a very low risk but we felt it was important to let people know. >> reporter: this is the first time in five years that the napa health department is deal with cases of hepatitis a. there are five in all and what
5:02 am
is so unusual there's no obvious link between all five. three are members of the same family and the other two who worked at la toque. the executive chef says they are working close with the health department to find the source of the infection. westin issued a statement that reads "our guests' health and safety is most important and we took all the appropriate precautions when we learned of the diagnoses. there have been no known cases involving hotel guests or customers at the two establishments. "latoque has high standards when it comes to food hygiene but has had additional instruction because of these cases. reporting live in napa, rob redell, "today in the bay." big changes coming this weekend to the san jose police department. those changes include putting more boots on the ground by shifting officers around. that means the homicide unit will be losing a sergeant.
5:03 am
"today in the bay's" damien t e trujilo joins us live at police headquarters. >> reporter: these changes take beginning of shift change on sunday morning. things will change here at sjpd. shift change is actually when officers rotate out of specialized units like homicide. the unit loses an officer, but then another officer takes his place. they rotate. well, that rotation stops on sunday. the officer in this case, a sergeant, will leave the homicide unit and will not be replaced. his position will not be back-filled in homicide. he simply goes out in to patrol to answer emergency calls. the elite metro unit will also see, get a big hit. that unit will lose several officers and one sarnl. staffing levels are at a critical stage at san jose police and the department says this change will stay in place until there are enough officers on the force to adequately
5:04 am
answer emergency calls. >> we're trying to keep the levels on patrol at a level we can maintain. again we're using overtime cars and regular assigned patrol officers but we need to have a minimum level and it's becoming increasingly difficult so we're going to not backfill some of those positions in our special operations, our bureau of investigation and our bureau of administration. >> reporter: the gang suppression unit will also lose an officer. the recruitment and training unit will lose four officers and one sergeant, and the department is working to implement a mandatory overtime plan. there simply aren't enough officers to patrol the streets of san jose right now. this takes effect beginning sunday morning at the beginning of shift change. we're live outside police headquarters in san jose, i am a damian trujillo, "today in the bay." >> thank you very much.

one person died at the scene of a medical helicopter crash in oklahoma. these are the first photos that we've gotten in of that crash site. the faa says three employees were on board that chopper when it went down. at this point, we don't know the condition of those two survivors. the national transportation safety board is headed to the investigation. details as we get them. military officials say they have to wait for better weather before they can pull the wreckage of a black hawk helicopter from the bottom of a florida waterway. the army says it has recovered the bodies of all nine servicemembers who died in the crash. officials say the bodies of two soldiers are unaccounted for, but likely inside the wreckage 25 feet underwater. the helicopter crashed tuesday night during a routine training mission at eglin air force base. >> it was a close call for a chp officer in san jose. investigators releasing this photo of a bullet hole in a chp car. it happened last woke when

officers pulled someone over on highway 101 near story road. the officers were not injured, the shooter is still on the loose. relief aid coming for what some residents call a foul smelling south bay landfill. the nuby island landfill in milpitas has been the focus of a heated debate. operators are trying to expand and residents miles away say they can smell it.the higher-up are in the process of launching an odor mitigation plan with public and private groups. that expansion plan is still on the table and won't be resolved until at least may. >> hopefully they mitigate the odors. 5:06. you are of course starting off your friday morning getting ready to see what the weekend has in store for you, maybe some suntan lotion, could be a good thing. meteorologist christina loren joining us with a look at your forecast. >> if you're rocking that farmer's tan like me, you'll definitely want to pull that out this weekend. make sure it has an spf 30 or o

better in order to protect you from those uva and uvb rays. temperatures right now mostly in the fifth. beautiful day ahead, look at your temperatures at lunch time, you're already going to be in the 70s in the tri valley. meanwhile 67 in san francisco and 68 degrees at noon in the north bay, into the upper 70s later on this afternoon. 78 degrees in wine country, just spectacular conditions. 78 degrees in the south bay, and this is officially the warmest air of the season so far. we're going to see records fall as we head through tomorrow and we climb even more so. the old record for tomorrow in san jose is 81 degrees. i'm forecasting 84 degrees, 83 old record in napa. i'm forecasting 85 and even in oakland you'll likely break a temperature record tomorrow. then things start to change as we get into your sunday. showers arrive but i don't think you need to cancel those plans. i'll time that system out to your microclimate in just moments. right now it's friday, definitely more commuters out there this morning at least at this hour, when i came in, mike
5:08 am
inouye. behind you as well. >> there you go. stay away from wherever christina is driving. fortunately we have her here so everything is safe on the road. the bulk of the activity is here san mateo bridge. this is eastbound from foster city to the flat section and that's where i just saw a bunch of lights traveling backward. the cruise clear backwards coming westbound on the eastbound lanes, that's typical. the lanes are closed and picking up cones headed from this side to the peninsula. krosh reported around the foster city approach. note it may be on the oeld shoulder there. 92 in both directions a pickup that's necessary as we have the overnight crews and that's about it around the bay. there's the dumbarton bridge to the south of 84, that moves smoothly. the peninsula doesn't have the traffic that will head over from the east bay. the nimitz freeway moves smoothly as well, light volume for the south bay. over here the tri valley has a little build out of the altamont pass for westbound 580, typical
5:09 am
about now. no problems through the dublin interchange, just a little slowing toward vasco, clear once you pass there and toward the bay bridge an easy drive, the south bay itself, no slowing across the santa cruz mountains or down through hollister and gilroy. back to you. >> mike, thank you very much. a brand new islet is forming in the pacific ocean. the plea from one local small business owner, next. and hbo's effect on the fcc. we'll take a look coming up in business and tech.

000 . it is 5:12. man in menlo park says his dry cleaning business is taking a hit because the previous owner was arrested for defrauding his customers. eric ibarra opened up a day after the owner left. police arrested the owner for allegedly stealing more than $700,000 from customers. ibarra says customers stopped going to his store and he had trouble securing a credit card service because of the
5:13 am
location's history. >> according to them, and this was their words, we were blacklisted, our address was, and so i had to get a letter from the bank manager, a letter from my landlord. >> ibarra put up new signs letting people know he is not the same owner and hoping to change the store's reputation and grow that business. all right, disney stocks soaring this morning after the company announces not one but two major new films. during the annual shareholder meeting disney announced "star wars episode 8" will be released in may of 2017 and as you see on your screen the company made "frozen 2" official. >> yes! >> no word when that will come out but sometimes you just got to give the people what they want. scott mcgrew, he had it hot off the printer, the fcc finally -- he can't keep a straight face. the fcc finally lifted the veil off of the rules of net neutrality. the fcc wanted to create the rules last month but only seeing them now. >> only seeing them now.
5:14 am
we've had 12 hours to look them over. the commissioners knew what they were voting on. we only knew the basics. now that we've had a chance to read a few hundred pages we can see the fcc will be a lot squishier on enforcing some of the rules, going on a case-by-case basis, which makes sense. this is all new territory for everyone. one surprise is that the fcc addressed the video from john oliver, the one watched on youtube millions of times and encouraged so many people to write the fcc. it crashed the fcc website. the commissioners wrote "4 million americans exercised their right to comment on proposed rule-making. it's a good thing. the commission has listened and it has learned." let's check your news before the bell, landon dowdy is live at cnbc world headquarters, good morning, landon. >> hey, scott, good morning to you. futures are pointing to a lower open after stocks rallied on thursday, bringing a two-day losing streak.

5:16 am
200 points. it was ignorable enough and of course it's a weighted index as well. >> sure. interesting, thank you very much, scott. meteorologist christina loren is here and you still use your pc. you have all kinds back there. >> i'm a mac girl at home, let it be known. 5:16, let's get you out the front door. it's not one of the days you want to stay inside on whatever computer you use. spectacular conditions will prevail yet again today and temperatures running about ten degrees above average. this will be a short-lived warming trend, everything starts to change as we get into your sunday. c 51 degrees in livermore, we're at 53 in san jose. mild start to a very warm afternoon. temperatures at lunch time in the board, and then we'll round  70s, 78 degrees for the south bay, 79 degrees meanwhile, really lovely conditions coming your way in the tri valley, speaking of which the dublin st. patrick's

5:30 am
i'm kris sanchez in for laura garcia-cannon. >> and i'm sam brock. once again people have taken to the streets of ferguson, missouri, this time not just to protest but also to pray. this comes as a manhunt continues for the person who shot two police officers on wednesday night. nbc's chris pallone joins us live in ferguson. do police have any leads on a suspect at this point? >> reporter: sam, if they do they're not saying so. the streets of ferguson are quiet this morning. the rain that moved in around midnight actually put to an end the latest protest that took place at the ferguson police department. police say they've talked to a few people and gathered some evidence but at this point, no arrests of a person who shot those two police officers. ♪ this little light of mine >> reporter: as they've done many times since the death of michael brown in august, people took to the street of ferguson, missouri. this was not a protest, instead a prayer vigil.
5:31 am
>> we're going to continue to heal. we're going to continue to educate our community at large. we're going to continue to heal and have those tough conversations. >> reporter: the group prayed for the two police officers as they were shot standing outside the police department. one officer shot in the face, the other in the shoulder. both men have been released from the hospital. witnesses say the shots came from about 100 yards away. >> we're lucky by god's grace we didn't lose two officers. >> reporter: the attack was just hours after ferguson police chief tom jackson resigned, the sixth city employee out of a job in the wake of a justice department investigation that revealed widespread racial bias. the missouri state police in st. louis county police have taken over security from the ferguson police department during future demonstrations as they did following the michael brown shooting. >> i believe that we will win! >> reporter: after the prayer vigil a few dozen protesters returned to the area across from the ferguson police department. they dispersed as heavy rain moved into the area. it's expected to last into saturday. everyone here is still uneasy, knowing a gunman who is not afraid to shoot into a crowd is still out there.
5:32 am
authorities here say that there are rewards totaling at least $13,000 for information leading to the arrest of the person who shot those two police officers. live in ferguson, missouri, chris pallone. sam, back to you. >> thank you very much for that update from ferguson. we'll continue to follow this developing story all morning long. the "today" show will have an update as well come up at 7:00. tomorrow volunteers will embark on their final search for missing morgan hill teenager sierra lamar. every weekend since lamar disappeared three years ago volunteers, friends and family gathered to search for her remains. she vanished on her way to high school in 2012. coming up we hear from the man who led that search for sierra for the last three years. he'll tell us why even though the center is closing, they are not giving up hope. big change is coming for the san jose police department, including changes that put more
5:33 am
boots on the ground by shifting officers around, that means the homicide unit will lose a sergeant. damian trujillo reported on the pending changes a few weeks ago and the changes start now. >> reporter: you know what, this department is getting ready for the big change at headquarters. that change begins on sunday in what's called shift change. now shift change is when officers do rotate in and out of some of these specialized units like homicide. one officer leaves and he or she is replaced by another officer. well this year when that officer leaves there will be no one to replace him. everyone will shift to patrol. the elite metro unit is losing quite a few officers. many of them will be headed out to patrol. there simply are not enough officers to answer 911 calls. so while there will be more officers on the streets, the specialized units like homicide and metro will have to do the same amount of work with fewer
5:34 am
officers. >> we are losing a few spots throughout the department. it will put extra work on the officers who are there but what is really important is that we have enough numbers in patrol because our primary obligation to the community is to answer those 911 calls for service. >> reporter: the gang suppression unit will also lose one officer. the recruitment and training unit will see four officers and one sergeant leave that unit, and the department is working to implement a mandatory overtime plan. staffing is so low in san jose that these drastic changes are needed to keep the streets safe, and as more officers are leaving the force, less or fewer of them are actually joining those ranks. we're live at police headquarters in san jose, i'm damian trujillo, "today in the bay." >> we'll see what impact that has on crime levels in san jose. thanks, damian. 5:34 right. the man that killed an oakland mother in front of her kids will be arraigned this morning.

"today in the bay's" rob redell joins us live in napa with the retails. folks should be watching out for symptoms, right, bob? >> reporter: that's correct. good morning to you, sam. the napa county health department acknowledges that
5:36 am
there is a very low risk that customers would have contracted hepatitis a while dining at the la toque restaurant inside the westin hotel in napa but they believe it's important enough that people need to know since  disease. anyone who ate at la toque between february 9th and february 25th, if you did contract hepatitis a from the two employees, now is when you'd start to show those symptoms. >> you get abdominal pain, nausea, sometimes vomiting. in the case of hepatitis, particularly in adults with hepatitis a, jaundice, which is your skin turns a little bit yellow, your eyes look a little yellow. >> reporter: what's unusual, this is the first time in five years the napa health department is dealing with cases of hep. a, all.úxx there's no obvious link between all five cases. three of the cases are all
5:37 am
within one family an the other two who work at la toque. executive chef ken frank says they're working closely with the health department to find the source of the infection. la toque already has high standards when it comes to food hygiene and the westin hotel which houses la to quu ie issued a statement which reads in part "our guests' health and safety is most important and we took all appropriate precautions when we learned of the diagnoses." reporting live in napa, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> thank you very much, bob. now meteorologist christina loren here with the forecast perfect for today, perfect for tomorrow and i would say even perfect for sunday because we might get a little rain. >> things are looking up for us, things are really looking up for us in the bay area. good morning to you at home. temperatures not too bad at all, pretty mild in concord, 5.
5:38 am
we're at 53 in san jose and basically this is the weather story of the day. mild start making way to a warm afternoon. let me take you through your day part forecast for today, into the mid-60s for most spots at about lunch time and we'll climb to about 70 degrees meanwhile in the south bay at noon. then temperatures are going to rise even more so up to 78 degrees before the day is done. this will be the warmest day we've had in over two months. 76 on the peninsula. 75 degrees for today in the east bay and looking really nice as we get into tomorrow afternoon as well, if if you wanted to hit the beach. sunny and warm for today, near record heat on saturday. in fact, i'm forecasting quite a few temperature records. i'll show you those in my next report. then the showers kris was talking about, those arrive on sunday, just depends on where you live as to what time you can count on having your umbrella out. i'll have all the details oen that coming up in my next report. right now we want to say good morning to mike inouye. we've had an opportunity to use those windshield wiper this is year. >> we have.
5:39 am
we have. over on the bay bridge a chance to use the brakes as well because you have backups, lanes filling in here, traditional. 880 overcrossing a little light. there was reports of a fender bender at the grand avenue offrarp there. sounded like everything is cleared from the overpass but i'm still tracking that. there's no slowing that shows up on our map coming over 880 crossing there. tiny build in spots for the east bay, slowing down to 60 miles per hour. nothing big as far as the north bay or the approach toward the bay bridge. in san francisco, the approach out of daly city northbound 280 around john daly boulevard, one car reportedly hit something in the roadway and not a big something but enough to pull over and call the chp so we'll watch for any removal that has to go on. i haven't seen slowing for the last ten minutes. the rest of your bay, zoomed out to the south bay up the peninsula at speeds. same thing for the east bay. the nimitz not showing any slowing yet. slowing for the build at the
5:40 am
various trouble spots for the morning, the tri valley. not trouble because of any crashes but we have all this traffic to get through so dublin does slow coming in toward tassajara and slowing out of the altamont pass, where the big volume comes in. highway 4 through antioch nothing dramatic but a little slowing. back to you. >> thank you very much. it is 5:40. the dispute over a million-dollar lottery ticket heads to court. >> a lot of money at stake plus what the 49ers are saying about bruce miller's future with the team. looking live at the bay bridge this time from the east bay, just as lovely from this angle. we're back with 15 minutes of nonstop news, traffic and weather, right after the break. everything online. t

which is perfect for me, because i think everything should just work. works? works. works! works? works. works. 5:42 right now. pressure mounting for the new director of the secret service. lawmakers demanding quick answers about why two agents were allowed to go home after
5:43 am
crashing through a barricade during a bomb scare at the white house. tracie potts is here with the latest on the investigation and of course the allegation that at the time those two secret servicemen were drunk. >> exactly. they do want some answers and joe clancy is the man to give those answers. they want them quickly. clancy was brought in as a turn-around guy. he made changes at the top but lawmakers don't think that was enough. it was all caught on video, and lawmakers want to see it. two senior secret service agents ran into a white house barricade during a bomb investigation last week after what "the washington post" called a night of drinking nearby. >> does it really need to be said that you can't show up drunk at work especially when you're in the secret service? >> he better deal with it swiftly. it is totally unacceptable. >> talked about zero tolerance and i expect him to react
5:44 am
accordingly to these reports. >> there's absolutely no doubt that heads need to roll. >> reporter: clancy was brought in to clean up the agency after a series of embarrassing missteps and security breaches. now lawmakers are fuming at reports that a supervisor let the agents go home. >> extraordinary disparate treatment between the agents themselves and the members of the public. >> reporter: the inspector general of homeland security is investigating. but still no word from the agents themselves. although someone familiar with and close to the case tells nbc that they are devastated, that they're embarrassed by what happened. >> i think that's a fair reaction to what happened. thank you very much, tracie. 5:44 right now. about an hour ago an american health care worker infected with ebola arrived safely in maryland for treatment. the national institutes of health says that worker contracted ebola in sierra leone. he or she has not been identified as of yet. the patient is the tenth person
