5:01 am
traffic, it was a crash that was causing a big backup. we just now see what we were hoping for, a little improvement here. let's look at your maps, the slower drive is from where the camera is all the way over toward hopyard. it's orange now. it was red. it was bad. they cleared the crash from the lanes, that's good news, making very good work of that crash. over to the peninsula there was a deer hit northbound 280 at 92, so there's two middle lanes currently blocked by this activity here. chp will likely run a quick traffic break if they have to clear any hazards from the roadway. as you're approaching 92 getting over toward 101 or heading toward the half moon bay area. we don't see a lot of slowing on the sensors because traffic is relatively light right now. looking at walnut creek, no delay there. at 5:01, a breaking story we've been following overnight.
5:02 am
you want to watch this, it is just tragic. it is a building collapsing in brazil. there are questions how many people possibly could have been inside. a local paper is reporting at least one death so far. there are reports the building used to be police headquarters, but it was abandoned years ago. squatters typically stay there. they' we're working with our foreign desk to get you the very latest. questions for the president. "the new york times" publishing a list of 44 questions special counsel robert mueller supposedly wants to ask mr. trump. topics include potential ties to russia, james comey's firing and the investigation that followed. at about 3:45 in the morning, president trump reacted to the report tweeting so disgraceful that the questions concerning the russian witch hunt were leaked to the media. no questions on collusion. oh, i see, you've made up phony crime, collusion, that never existed. an investigation begun with
5:03 am
illegally leaked classified information. nice. and that's not the only headline coming from the white house today. four sources exclusively tell nbc news they saw chief of staff john kelly call president trump, quote, an idiot. there's an author who writes about chiefs of staff. >> that's a real problem if the chief of staff is criticizing the president out loud. >> in a statement, john kelly calls the story, quote, total bs, adding his relationship with mr. trump is strong. this morning we continue to monitor the latest developments at the mexican border. right now dozens of migrants seeking asylum are still awaiting entry into the u.s. the u.s. allowed eight women and children into the united states. this is all happening at the checkpoint near san diego. a month ago more than a thousand near guatemala began their 2,000-mile journey to the border. many dropped out along the way.
5:04 am
they say they're trying to escape the violence in central america. president trump delayed their entry claiming they pose a threat to the united states. here's vice president mike pence after he met with customs and border patrol agents. >> the 150 men, women and many small children that are being processed at our border not far from here will be completely reviewed by our customs officials under our asylum laws. >> the vice president also inspected the construction work under way at the border wall. and if you're running low on your smartphone data for the month, san jose has you covered. today the city council could approve a plan to speed up public wi-fi. it's a $5 million deal with at&t to install small cell technology on light poles. 95,000 people will get access to the high-speed internet, but experts remind us don't ever do anything private using public wi-fi. it would really be easy for

5:07 am
over to hopyard and more slowing hitting the dublin interchange with northbound 680. there's a lot of congestion as they cleared a crash. as we look at the rest of the area, walnut creek, concord, highway 4 looking great all the way from antioch over toward the maze where there are no real problems. a live look to show you how they are over the richmond bridge. westbound 80 shows no backup and that's great but we'll track that and you'll see a backup in about 15 minutes. in problems for the bay shore freeway. back to you. 5:07 for you. today thousands across the country will come together for the annual may day marches. this is video of things happening new york city right now. the rally cry will bow sae sanc for all.
5:08 am
bob redell is live where the protest will happen today. >> reporter: good morning. yes, may day is typically a demonstration for labor rights but over time it's a fight for people who are generally struggling to make ends meet. that's why later this afternoon here in concord at the meadow homes park there's about 300 people expected to rally and protest for better housing for people who are mid to low income and who are immigrants. the raise the roof coalition which is organizing the protest is trying to get the city of concord to better protect tenants from rising rents. then in oakland you have thousands of people, they're expecting a rally to protest increased attacks on the immigrant community by the trump administration and local law enforcement who collaborate with i.c.e. there will be a rally at 3:00, a march at 4:00 to the alameda

5:14 am
user data. when mark zuckerberg takes the stage for his keynote conference at 10:00 this morning, no doubt a lot of the developers in the audience will be thinking about this. just three weeks ago mark zuckerberg was in a suit and tie testifying before congress about privacy and data. cambridge analytica is accused of using facebook data from some 87 million profiles without the users' knowledge to influence the 2016 election. >> what we've done is really made changes to make sure that no one takes advantage of the platform. so we're putting precautions in place to really make sure that going forward that everyone is saf safe. >> reporter: developers will be wondering what that means for them. you know they count on that user data to be able to develop those third-party apps so many of us use. so that will be some of the buzz. developers are also talking about augmented reality and a new tech set to be announced in
5:15 am
the coming days. but a lot of the breakout sessions here are related to privacy and user data, from creating secure products to also rethinking privacy among the users. we will be here at 10:00 when mark zuckerberg's keynote speech begins. in san jose, kris sanchez for "today in the bay." >> kris will be watching that facebook stock as it holds that conference in san jose. the creator of whatsapp says he's going to quit his job at facebook. he's also on the board of directors there. also do watch apple. apple reports after the closing bell. california supreme court made a huge ruling on monday over who can be considered a contractor or a gig worker. this could affect uber workers, door dash delivery people, that kind of thing. the court said if you do what's in your job that matches the company's total mission, you're a worker, not a contractor. so, for instance, this young woman parking cars for a car parking company can't be considered a contractor because
5:16 am
the whole point of her job matches the company's mission. on the other hand, if you're a plumber called in to fix a leak in an office, of course you're a contractor. the company isn't in the business of fixing leaks. the president has delayed imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum from the european union, canada and mexico. germany and the eu have threatened to slap new taxes on our products if we go ahead and put a tariff on their steel. jeff bezos says he will spend a billion dollars each year of his own money to support his rocket program blue origin. he can afford that, he's worth $130 billion. he can't even spend that in a life time. he says what am i going to do with all that money, have a second dinner out every night? can you imagine spending $1 billion a year and there's no way to spend all that money? >> i can't imagine, but i
5:17 am
wouldn't mind trying. >> there's a lot of needy charities. nonprofits. so i want to tell you about this story. mountain lion researchers are back at it. this morning conservation biologists are joining forces with berkeley. the new team sent out this map and it caught our attention. do you see your neighborhood right here? it's kind of hard to see, but if you look closely there. now, someone reported seeing the mountain lion. here's great news for you. researchers say all the lions they were tracking actually managed to survive those fires last fall, so good news there. if you live in the south bay, soon you won't have to travel far to enjoy redwoods. work is starting today on a new park called the bear creek redwoods open preserve. it's just south of los gatos. eventually plans are to build the 1400 redwood park protecting a lot of trees.

5:20 am
santa rosa expect a high of 74 and 72 in palo alto. so as we get a look at our forecast for tonight -- no, that was yesterday, wrong one. so we're going to see a few clouds moving in, especially if you're planning to head over toward the sierra. watching out for those showers and thunderstorms that could fire up again today. yesterday they did have some hail there. let me know what you're doing for the weekend. the weekend forecast is coming up in about 20 minutes. if i get it between now and then, you may see it right here. and then we're going to continue on with some beautiful weather looking at some mid to upper 70s in the forecast. sunshine, not a drop of rain here, and then as we go into next week we'll continue on with mid-60s in san francisco. now, mike, you were saying all the earlier crashes have cleared. >> that's right, kari, and that's great news. in fact much of the overnight road work has cleared as well so we're left with green sensors. this is a very pleasant 5:20,

5:32 am
pete is live with what's next for what some are calling controversial rides. good morning, pete. >> reporter: yeah, good morning to you, laura. you mentioned that timeline a few weeks ago, right? a few weeks ago you had the city attorney issuing a cease and desist letter saying they would need a permit in order to carry out business in san francisco. driving around this morning, we're not seeing a lot of those scooters, if any scooters, lying around, around the city. but they're going to talk about a permit program for these companies as far as doing business in the city moving forward. it's going to be a two-year pilot program called the power scooter share program. now, it limits to only five e-scooter permits, only five companies at a given time can operate in the city. each company can have no more than 500 scooters, which means no more than 2,500 scooters could be in san francisco at a given time. also it would be a violation for any of those scooters in the
5:33 am
city that are not permanent. as far as fees go, it would be a $5,000 application fee per company. they'd also have to pay a $25,000 annual fee. here's another fee that's interesting, a $10,000 maintenance fee to cover any property damage as well as storage of any illegally parked scooters. i want to mention that sfmta has companies that have posed some issues for the city. they have a desire to comply with the program whenever it's rolled out, but it will be discussed further during the sfmta board meeting set to take place in the city at 1:00 p.m. >> all right, keep following, thanks, pete. 5:33. new this morning, violence in the east bay. a shooting leaves two people dead. this in oakland. this happened on 89th avenue near international boulevard. officers found the body there a little before midnight, but right now they're not saying exactly when that shooting may
5:34 am
have happened. we're working to get more details like the suspect's description. of course we'll pass that along as soon as we get that information. people trying to get around downtown concord want a traffic nightmare to be over. last week we told you with that fire that destroyed a luxury apartment complex. this is video that we shot overnight. some of the progress the crews are making trying to tear down that building. two of the city's main roads, willow pass road and concord boulevard, still closed. police tell the "east bay times" they're still working on a timeline to reopen the roads. focusing on rebuilding after the fire. santa rosa leaders really want to expand the city's new and streamlined permit process for housing. the aftermath of last year's firestorm, councilmembers approved fast track permits to allow homeowners to rebuild. now leaders want to expand the areas outside the burn zone. that measure would last for three years. some of the concern about the building frenzy is that it's too
5:35 am
much deregulation. the felon whose case sparked an overhaul of california's cash bail system remains in custody, but today supporters plan to be there when he receives his own bail hearing. kenneth humphrey was arrested after allegedly robbing someone of $5 and a bottle of cologne at his senior home. he couldn't afford to pay his bail. based on his case, an appeals court ruled judges must consider financial circumstances in bail hearings. the hearing gets under way at 9:00 a.m. in san francisco. 5:35, continuing coverage of the golden state killer case. some say a recent courtroom appearance may be an act of what he was doing. you can see joseph deangelo looking weary as slumped as we entered the courtroom. they say it's just deangelo acting and meant to create sympathy and even doubt. >> it wouldn't surprise me if he
5:36 am
wasn't trying to play everybody. playing his own lawyers, playing the courtroom, playing the judge and potentially playing the jury pool. >> according to neighbors, that image that we've seen in the courtroom is a far cry from the man they know. deangelo is an avid bike rider and that he generally is very physically active. at 5:36, a sad story to tell you about. a san francisco woman is desperately pleading for the return of her stolen dog. her 13-year-old blind and deaf pug was snatched from outside the whole foods on market street, very popular location, a lot of people there. she says it happened when she went inside to grab a cup of coffee. take a look at this surveillance video in fact. a different woman unties the dog and just walks away. lee says her beloved dog won't survive much longer without his eye cancer medication. >> i just want him home.
5:37 am
i know he needs me as much as i need him. he's my best friend. i feel like my heart is ripped apart in pieces. >> lee is offering a $5,000 reward for his safe return. we now know the stranded sailboat in pacifica won't be removed until at least tomorrow afternoon. a group planned to remove it last night but high surf prevented that from happening. the boat ran ashore saturday night and is still on the beach this morning. four people were onboard going to san francisco to san diego when the engine stopped and the boat drifted ashore. 5:37. looking at a calm, quiet oracle arena this morning, but come tonight it's going to be rocking. it's because steph curry could be back in action. he is expected to play tonight against the pelicans. warriors coach steve kerr said curry looked good during practice, but they're going to have to put some restrictions on
5:38 am
him if he plays. if you didn't know, curry has been out almost five weeks with an injured knee. you've likely heard the saying what goes around comes around but we'll try not to say that too loudly in front of the shark fans. >> it was another overtime thriller but this one ends with a thud at the shark tank. sharks came home to screaming fans an a double overtime came two win in vegas and tied last night's game at 3 after being down 3-1. this time the golden knights scoring that golden goal. sharks players there's no reason to lose home. >> i believe our game is there. i think anyone in here would tell you that. on the wrong end of it tonight. we'll take a look like we always do, regroup, recover and be ready to go. >> the golden knights lead 2-1 with game four tomorrow night at s.a.p. >> go sharks! again, those overtimes, they're exciting. but i stay up late for this.
5:39 am
over here on the south bay, we'd like a little calmer drive and that's what we're seeing. maybe a lot of folks stayed up to see that so they're not hitting the road because the tri-valley, the peninsula, getting across the bay on the bridges looks great right now. no major problems really, a little slowing 101 through san martinez. right on schedule for that portion of 101 itself. zooming really quickly over toward the concord area, we were talking about the closure still around the fire scene there. so remember that willow pass road and concord boulevard are both closed between grant and mira vista. that's not something they welcome. there's the golden gate bridge. look at that easy traffic and a beautiful view of that span as well as that sun coming up. that's nice. >> looking good. >> looking ahead to the weekend too. that's looking good as well. >> that's a reminder that the days are getting longer. you can make plans to get out there and stay out a little later in the evening as well.
