that's what close to 200 people want to know tonight. our investigative unit did a report regarding potentially contaminated dirt leaving hunters point and winding up in a landfill in the east bay. nbc bay area's cheryl hurd is live in pittsburg. did those residents get their answer tonight? >> reporter: they did get some answers tonight about this landfill, but, janelle, i'm really not quite sure if they got the answers that they wanted. our investigative unit did a report on this subject four years ago and tonight some 200 people had a lot of questions. >> you sit there, tell us spending millions of dollars and that point is not being addressed. >> reporter: a lot of anger and concern over possible radioactive dirt being dumped in their own backyard. >> if it wasn't for the investigation being done by t media, we'd all still be in the dark about it. >> reporter: the concern all stems from a massive cleanup project at hunters point naval shipyard in san francisco taking place between 2010 and 2016.
in 2014, our investigative unit was contacted by two whistle-blowers alleging dirt was not being properly screened for radiation. during our investigation, we followed a truck leaving hunters point and ending up at the keller canyon landfill. contra costa county just got wind of the radioactive controversy. now the county is calling for an independent investigation. >> we want to just be assured that there's no risk and that all of the contaminated material, if it was brought here, has been removed. >> if we think that the people did get exposed to this low-level radium 226 that might have been in the soil, cancer is the primary concern. >> reporter: tonight a naval spokesperson was transparent about 218 tons of asphalt leaving hunters point that had not been properly screened for radiation. they say the mistake was caught the same day. >> our first priority is to ensure public safety.
>> reporter: in pittsburg, cheryl hurd, nbc bay area news. speaking of contaminated soil, a former construction worker at hunters point in san francisco is now suing the company in charge of cleaning up the radiation. he claims his employer, tetra tech, concealed the highly toxic nature of the soil that he had to dig through for nine years. the worker claims he's sick and fears being diagnosed with cancer. now, other whistle-blowers accused tetra tech of faking some of the cleanup and claim the shipyard is still contaminated with radiation. a spokesman for the company says these allegations and the lawsuit are simply false and the company will prevail in court. graffiti artists delivered a blistering message about trump's immigration policy in emeryville. claiming responsibility for vandalizing a billboard. the ad initially read "we make junk disappear." but this morning it had been changed to "we make kids
disappear," signed i.c.e., the abbreviation for immigration and customs enforcement. >> we risk not just our safety but our freedom to draw attention to a particular issue. >> no comment from i.c.e. or got junk, the group advertising on the billboard. the billboard has already been fixed. well, her surprise visit with migrant children drew praise but a fashion choice by first lady melania trump is getting a lot of criticism. while boarding the plane, the first lady was wearing a jacket with the words, i really don't care, do u? it creates a firestorm on social media, some people asking if she was sending a message. the first lady did not wear the jacket during her visit in texas. by the way, the $39 jacket is in zara and sold out within hours today. a major shake-up in the silicon valley. the ceo of intel is out. ceo brian krzanich resigned unexpectedly after the company says it learned he had a past consensual relationship with an
intel employee. that violated company policy. robert swan will now take over. intel will launch an extensive search for a permanent replacement. a test drive for those scooters. those electric scooters are the topic of debate tonight among city leaders in san jose. people were invited to come to city hall to test out the high-tech devices. they could ask questions, meet with the scooter company leaders. it's all part of a plan to regulate the scooters. the scooters are becoming more and more popular. we saw them in san francisco, and now in san jose. some say they're also creating hazards on the sidewalks and the roadways. people around the world are sending their condolences to the bay area's gorilla foundation. koko, the famed sign language gorilla, has died. the 46-year-old seen here during an nbc bay area special became a worldwide celebrity in the '70s. that's when a stanford grad student began teaching the
gorilla sign language, eventually teaching koko to sign more than 1,000 words and understand 2,000 spoken phrases. >> koko will make an impact for years to come, possibly generations to come. we wanted her to live forever. >> the gorilla foundation says it will continue its work. >> can you imagine having a conversation through sign language with a gorilla? >> the neatest thing. >> they were shaken up at headquarters. this was emotional for them. >> oh, for sure. okay, jeff. take it away. >> warm weather building as we head throughout the next couple of days. certainly some dangerous heat coming back to the bay area. let's go ahead and get a look at our microclimate forecast. i've been showing this map a lot today, but it really depicts what's happening in the atmosphere. it's our water vape satellite. what you want to pay attention to on this is the brown to the beige colors here across pacific california right back through texas. that's all hot, dry air. you can see how it's really
moving in across california. that basically means we're on a lock here for this hotter weather to build in friday and also on saturday's forecast. so really what i'm watching as this heat builds is in low 100s inland, humidity down to 10% to 20%. that's going to keep our fire danger high. we'll also be dealing with some winds. variable 5 to about 15 miles per hour on average, but occasional gusts in the hills could go 20 to 40 miles per hour on that hottest day on saturday. the good news at least immediately about all this is tomorrow morning we do start off with some cooler temperatures. so get up early. enjoy it. if you happen to have a whole house fan, tomorrow morning is when you want to click that on and then shut your windows. if you don't fan, check it n tt. tri-valley tomorrow morning. south bay, we're looking at 63. you can see from the north bay down to the east bay, we're also looking at more low 60s tomorrow and lots of sunshine to start. temperatures 10 to 15 degrees hotter tomorrow.
you're really going to feel it across morgan hill and gilroy. we'll be close to 100 degrees. not quite as hot right near san jose. still a bit of a bay breeze but a warm day with 91 in downtown san jose. where you have to watch out for the heat is antioch, concord, danville. low 100s. peninsula saved from super hot temperatures. a little wind moving off the ocean. 90 in palo alto. san francisco, a few 70s here in fyou 97 in napa. an adjustment going up torday it will be warm for sp standaf s on pride. city as way from the coastline, we are at 103 on saturday. but by sunday, we're banking on an ocean breeze. if everything goes as expected, that should drop us down to 90
on sunday and then once we hit monday, we're at a much better 80 degrees. then plenty of comfortable weather as we head through a lot of next week. so two-day event. then we look better on sunday. >> and we're almost to friday. it is a go. the roseanne spin offset to debut. and we have jimmy. >> hey, guys, dave matthews band is here tonight. dave matthews band. plus we have michael strahan, tonight show tuned. happening now, growing support for a san mateo police officer seriously injured in a crash. a gofundme campaign for officer carlos bacerto has now raised more than $38,000. the officer fell asleep behind the wheel and flipped his suv last week. we posted the full story and details at nbcbayarea.com. kari
