6:00 am
i'm laura garcia-cannon. >> and i'm marcus washington as we are here on this hump day looking ahead to the holiday weekend for a of people. >> and a lot one. >> it will be all about trying to find theest places to hang out over the next several days. this could be the hottest weather we've had all summer long and it could be the longest heat wave we've had so far this season. as we start out this morning it's nice and cool. we're in the upper 50s to lower 60s. it has cooled down to 51 degrees in the north bay looking at high temperatures it's still going to be very warm for the inland valleys. san jose up to 83 degrees and 64 in san francisco. we'll talk more about this but mike is now tracking san jose and oakland. that's where we see the slowing. oakland the bay bridge toll plaza has your metering lights on a little slowing at the berkeley curve. nothing major. a nice, easy drive. and, in fact, most of the rest of the bay, light flowing to the
6:01 am
south bay. that's where we have the other concern here, north 101 starting to build once again. look at our live shot. we do have also on the southbound side restricted lane flow, south 101 getting off at story road. i saw a lot of smoke just died down over the last five minutes and san jose fire is not worried about it spreading but it's still there. to you. and our top story this morning tropical storm harvey back on land. the storm system made its third landfall early this morning just outside of lake charles, louisiana. not far from the texas border. a live look from cameron, louisiana, as you can see there the wind is certainly blowing. the camera is shaking because of all of that. this is one of the first peck tours out of louisiana since harvey started moving in that direction. of course a close eye we are following and staying on this area as it could experience massive flooding as you see there. take a look at this new video just in this morning.
6:02 am
flood victims in port arthur, texas, just can't catch a break here. they were evacuated from their flooding homes and then the evacuation center flooded overnight. the person who shot this video said she even saw a snake in the water they plan to move evacuees to another location. in the meantime a lot of new information about the rescue and recovery operations under way. within the past two hours we've learned there have been more than 18,000 water rescues and at this hour nbc news can confirm, sadly, nine people are dead and the number is expected to rise. many others are missing and feared dead. with no official number for how many people are missing, dozens of families have posted photos asking for help just to try to find their loved ones. "today in the bay's" sarah dallof live this morning to explain how the city of houston is now preparing to open more mega shelters to try to house some of these harvey evacuees.
6:03 am
>> reporter: yeah, that's correct, laura and mark as more than 17,000 people have checked in to red cross shelters, a number that is sure to rise as the day goes on. inside houston's shelters seeking refuge. a hot meal and news of neighbors. >> we're very thankful we're here safe. >> reporter: outside the strain of days of historic rainfall pushing critical infrastructure to the limit. two reservoirs that protect downtown houston now spilling over even as emergency workers continued to release water. houston police announcing the loss of one of their own. >> he was a sweet and gentle public servant. >> reporter: sergeant perez drowned in his patrol car on the way to report for duty. his wife devastated. >> and she tells me, i told him not to work. his response was, i have work
6:04 am
to. >> reporter: president donald trump offered reassurances to texans during his visit tuesday. >> this is historic. it's ep what happened, but, you know what, it happened in texas, and texas can handle anything. >> reporter: while there have been arrests for looting, officials say overall things have been orderly. rescues continue around the clock. strangers coming from far and wide to support a region battered but not beaten. and in just the last few minutes officials have confirmed a tenth death storm related. many remain missing. officials say they will continue to focus their efforts rescues. marcus and laura? >> thanks the very latest there. we do have our team coverage continuing this morning. i want to bring in meteorologist kari hall right now who has been tracking harvey even before it
6:05 am
made landfall. now it's hitting louisiana. >> we are seeing where sarah dallof is, there's a break from that rain and some of the heavier rainfall bands with tropical storm harvey now moving out of the houston area which will provide a little bit of relief but the flooding will go on for weeks and we are also seeing some of the heavier rain moving into the mississippi, louisiana alabama as well as the center of the storm moves off to the north and east. it will make a little bit more of a faster northward progression over the next several days. as we go into thursday as well as friday. we'll continue to monitor that over the next several days. and many of you have been asking after seeing those images how you can help. the red cross is taking donations. head over to click on the link. it's as simple as sending a text message with your cell phone. our own damian trujillo is on
6:06 am
the ground in houston gathering the latest on this historic flooding. you can head over now to it is 6:06. police say one person is dead after a hit-and-run in concord. we have new video to show you. it happened about 10:30 on highway 4 near the solano off ramp. the police log shows that a truck and another vehicle collided. the truck driver fled. the other driver died. overnight we reached out to chp to ask for suspect information. we've also asked what led up to the crash. when we hear back we'll let you know. and happening today at 6:06 a crime crackdown in the south bay. in less than half an hour law enforcement officers will be out in full force in parts of santa clara looking for people who rn following the rules of the road. kris sanchez is live in cupertino to explain what we might see as they under way this
6:07 am
morning. kris? >> reporter: you might see more lights, hear more sirens today. we'll tell you, though, that by telling you this enforcement we're not doing anything wrong. officers and deputies have long told us when they do this sort of thing, they don't care why people are driving more safely whether it's because they get pulled over or hear there's the possibility that they might be pulled over from us. so we're onboard with them. they're onboard with us. we won't give you the specific locations. we are talking santa clara county. it is going to be local and state law enforcement officers, deputy police as well enforce that go traffic law. officers will be in cupertino. i have been asking to give me some of the traffic data on the kind of pullovers they do, the tickets they write, but i haven't gotten that yet. when i get it i will post that online. now i do have a poll up on my
6:08 am
twitter feed asking you what kind of bad behavior are you hoping these officers will focus on. so far folks are saying texting and driving and definitely speeding. as a mother i hope some the enforcement is happening in school zones because i do see some bad behavior driving through school zones. we'll let you know how it's going on later this morning. the officers are starting to arrive. we saw one more motorcycle officer. we'll go along with them so we won't see you the rest of the morning. we'll bring you the outcome at 11:00. in cupertino, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> a good reminder to buckle up and slow down. if you plan on taking b.a.r.t. you might want to prepare ahead. b.a.r.t. will be doing some track work. the lake merritt station will be closed saturday through sunday. b.a.r.t. will provide some free buses for riders with tickets to connect to other stations.
6:09 am
the work up to 25 minutes on all lines and even a longer delay through the oakland airport. it's 6:09. as you get ready to head out the door, a few clouds in the south bay and temperatures this afternoon will be very nice and comfortable but still very warm for the south county reaching into the low 90s. inland areas are going to see those 90s from the tri-valley up to con and antioch while hayward will see a high of 75 degrees. san francisco reaching into the mid to upper 60s and for the north bay up to 85 degrees in napa. we will be tracking some much hotter temperatures and a look at today's temperature trend coming up at about 6:13. mike has another issue for the south bay. >> that's right. in addition to the fire we're tracking, the fire at story road off ramp from southbound 101. the off ramp is open but there's a fire crew there and flares as well. we heard about a number of incidents, seeing a deer.
6:10 am
it sounds like it might have been hit or injured. be careful. there may be roadside activity on the northbound side through that stretch. here is the rest of your northbound commute. it hasn't kicked in for most of the south bay. over here a build for the tri-valley. in fremont northbound 680. a report of a crash. it sounds like everything is out of lanes. i will track that. it could be a distraction. we'll look at your travel times to the bay bridge. a nice, easy drive. we're still under 25 minutes to the berkeley curve and the backup. back to you. >> let's hope it gets moving. thank you, mike. 6:10. the housing crisis. we investigate overnight to see just how many homes need to be built to keep up with the demand for new housing. houses under water in texas. what effect will that have on the american economy? we'll take a look.

6:13 am
it's 6:13. we wake up and head out the door with nice cool temperatures and cloud cover as we take a live look outside in the south bay. take you to the neighborhood of willow glen to check out the temperature trend today. upper 60s at. as you get ready to pick up the kids from school in the lower 80s. that's where we stay throughout the day.
6:14 am
this is our break before temperatures get really hot. more on that coming up in five minutes. i just watched the third vehicle in the last 30 seconds try to use the story road off ramp. what's going on here in san jose. thank you very much, kari and mike. 6:14. continuing coverage this morning. the flooding in houston where the waters are now starting to recede ever so slightly. there's one thing that did not take long to appear. investigating hundreds of price gouging complaints. supplies in houston are in short supply. customers say the markups, however, have become outrageous. one complaint the teller at a houston store was trying to sell a 12-pack of water for $45. the attorney general says businesses will be held accountable.
6:15 am
a who's who of mayors from california's largest cities are scheduled to appear in san francisco. that includes mayor ed lee, libby schaaf, they plan to call on lawmakers. and more details overnight. digging deeper in california's housing crunch, poring over the findings. they say 180,000 homes have to be built each year through 225 to keep up with the population growth. an average of 85 homes have been built. home ownership rates are at their lowest levels. it is 6:15. a judge today may decide if a suit filed three years ago against fastrak and the golden gate bridge district can receive
6:16 am
class-action status. the suit accuses the toll thert and xerox, the contractor that runs fastrak of inflating charges for non-fastrac users. it was filed after the golden gate bridge converted to an all electronic system. good news for americans. it's growing even faster than expected. >> though, scott mcgrew, not as fast as the president would like. a few minutes ago showing 3% growth. we are eight years into a boom cycle that usually lasts about five years. now the damage from hurricane harvey was included in the report but it's reasonable to ask what sort of effect harvey will have on the american economy. some say disasters like this are
6:17 am
kind of a wash. well, sort of canceling out the storm, i suppose. neither north korea nor the united states seem to take further action gouging 56. the nasdaq up tuesday. more or less official uber has a ceo. dara khosrowshahi says he will take the job. the next question how does he deal with uber's previous ceo founder travis kalanick. who is still on the board. other candidates for the uber ceo job say they wouldn't take it unless he was removed. in an e-mail, he says, i have to tell you, i'm scared. i've been here at expedia for so long that i've forgotten what life is like outside this place. i thought that was delightfully honest. >> very much so. he has a lot to tack.
6:18 am

6:25 am
help. investigator chris chmura is here to explain why and where he sees the wake-up call for california. >> reporter: your insurance will cover you if rain falls down on your home but not if it rises up. it requires a separate purchase from the national flood insurance program run by fema. the entire state of texas had flood insurance. the vast majority of homeowners have zero coverage for floods. here in california the insurance president clinton tour is even more bleak. just.8% of us have flood coverage. out of the 13.5 million homes, condos, and mobile homes here there are only 246,000 flood insurance policies.
6:26 am

"the chronicle" reported 280,000 on street parking spaces. now getting to them before the guy in front of you. how you can weigh in on the plan for a new ballpark in the east bay. >> reporter: an east bay school district shuts down a proposal to split in. the reason this fight is not over yet. this is the new comfort food.

"today in the bay's" pete suratos live with a closer look at the potential site and how the changes could certainly impact fans as well. good morning, pete. >> reporter: good morning to you, laura. i had a chance to speak with the oakland a's about this meet and greet they're calling a listening tour and they say they have been very beneficial as far as gaining public input on the potential sites. we'll show you the map of the potential sites and it's really down to three options. the first one right here where we're standing at the observing coliseum. those other two options will be a little bit up north and the howard terminal and community
6:37 am
college headquarters. now fans are speculating they could be moving to the howard terminal location but when i reached out they tell me they're evaluating all their options and it's important to understand the needs of their stakeholders when it comes to their final decision. now if the a's do end up at the howard terminal location public transport could be an issue since b.a.r.t. does not run to that location. i did reach out to b.a.r.t. who explained in an e-mail as many as 13% to 18% of fans use b.a.r.t. to get to games and they will consider to do so to the other two sites. the economic impact is too early to tell. they have to figure out where that final location will be but the last day of that listening tour is today. you can meet with the team president at 4:30 p.m. in oakland. we're live, pete suratos for "today in the bay." >> pete, thanks for that update and a live look at the golden gate bridge.
