>> we did an inspection last july and there were no obvious problems then. >> reporter: fulton says for public's safety's sake she wants to see caltrans take action. >> my duty to bring this to the attention of cale trans and if they don't do anything about it, i would have a huge problem with that. >> reporter: now many have been wondering why some sort of netting or some sort of barrier for feature potential probables with concrete has not been installed. caltrans would consider that option after they are done doing the inspections. when we drove through the tunnel, the eastbound was blocked off with traffic cones. i'm peggy bunker. the 580 express lane is open tonight. a live look from the camera. the two eastbound lanes opened on friday. lanes are free to use for carpoolers, cleaner vehicles, buses and cyclists but solo drivers have to pay to use the

6:21 pm
in fact, all of february has been lacking. this was the month with el nino we were supposed to see things stack up and it did not materialize. .74 in santa rosa. we should have on average, .98. livermore 1.30 and we should have 2.47 and comparing it to 1998 and that other very strong el nino event, there is no way we're going to catch up to these incredible totals we had then with 19 inches and better in 1998. again, 19.42 in 1998 and .74 this february. now despite the lack of rainfall so far this month, we'll have details on our sierra snow pack and how well that is doing despite the lack of rainfall in about 25 minutes. >> sobering numbers, thank you. coming up at 6:00. apple against the fbi. what the ceo is telling employees about this controversy

6:24 pm
joes of west lake is a classic. we have photos of the impressive interior right now on we're back in a moment. not just the presidential race
6:25 pm
-- there's another hot race -and its unfdng in our own who's gonna replace longtime senator barbara >> not just the presidential race but another hot race unfolding in our backyard. who is going to replace barbara boxer? larry is with us, 18 official candidates but only two or three viable candidates. >> 18. can you believe it? why aren't you running? you're about the only one missing. for the moment, it's a battle between two democrats in a state-wide field poll taken just last month, what did we see? a state attorney general harris clearly leading the pack followed by loretta sanchez of southern california. as you can see, look, harris leads fellow democrat sanchez nearly 2-1. two republicans and tom are in
6:26 pm
third and fourth place. but very, very far from the lead. so what does this mean? it means that with california's top two primary systems, yeah, the two democrats would face-off in november if the current poll results stay true. >> what can happen with sanchez here? so much hype and exposure for harris. what's the difference? >> i should remind you half the people haven't made up their mind. there is a great big variable there. once you get to these guys, harris and sanchez, they are both at the liberal end of the democratic party. there is no question about that. their differences are minor in a lot of cases. although, although, the question of for profit education, they split there. harris advocated more regulation in the wake of recent scandals while sanchez says that government should stay out of the issue all together. so that's the way it goes.
6:27 pm
in some respects, the main difference then really is style. now look, harris is well scripted, tightly wound. sanchez on the other hand, shoots from the hip for example a few months ago, she estimated that between 5 and 20% of all muslims deport the caliphate or radical islamic state. that remark didn't exactly endear her to civil liberties advocates. >> what do you expect between now and june? >> couple things. for starters, watch for the democratic party endorsement when the state convention meets in san jose. a candidate must receive 60% of the delegate votes to be endorsed. harris expects to get that endorsement but sanchez hopes to block her. in this kind of race with so many undecideds, the party endorsement could be critical. long-term another thing, watch for the battle from minority
6:28 pm
voters. sanchez should do well with latinos and california particularly southern california but harris will go a long way with liberals, particularly whites and non-whites alike. those at the far left of the party. pay attention to fundraising. at the last report a couple weeks ago, harris had $4 million in the bank. sanchez had $2 million in the bank. many people in northern california, raj, expect harris to walk away with this, to defeat sanchez. we know harris. voters in southern california may have the last word at least in june. >> yeah, the senate seats don't open up often in california. nevada revving up, next up for the republican race for the white house. donald trump has a strong lead in the poll ahead of tomorrow's caucus with marco rubio and ted cruz battling it out for second place. the fights are getting more personal after cruz' campaign aired an ad questioning rubio's
6:29 pm
religious believes. >> every single day something comes out of the cruz campaign that's deceptive and untrue. >> a graver r error of judgemen >> cruz asked rick tyler to resign and the two campaigns are fighting to win over jeb bush supporters. the pressure is on before super tuesday when 12 states will hold their primary. up next at 6:00 a meant eloquent health issue. behind the scenes of people that live with gun violence in oakland nearly every day. >> no town in america should have to go through this, not america the most wealthy nation on the earth. >> the toughest and most violent neighborhoods in the country and see the mental health crisis spawned by living with violence on a daily basis. about gun violence in oakland.

6:35 pm
unit mapped the numbers of the 30 murders in oakland since last august, all but five happened in west or east oakland, mostly along or near the boulevard. similar clustering can be found. >> no town in america should have to go through this, not in america. >> reporter: as jones showed us around his old stomping ground we met up with tim smith and his 8-year-old son. >> he's seen five dead bodies now. >> reporter: that's right, tim smith's 8-year-old son seen five people shot dead. >> the body is on the ground and you're telling your guy look over here and -- >> reporter: that's more than most of us see in a lifetime. the data shows this violence can almost be a daily presence in the lives of people that live here looking at oakland shot spotter numbers, we discover in
