around. >> reporter: it is, indeed, jessica. this is one of the spots a person also went to valley fair mall in san jose, even the apple campus visitors center. public health officials are putting out this information and the entire list of locations so people know what to look out for. an unidentified international traveler with measles may have spread the virus in at least 20 different south bay and peninsula locations. all between march 16th and last friday. they visited the great mall in milpitas one week ago 7:00 p.m., but people may have been exposed for two more hours. >> it's just alarming because you would think you would try to take care of yourself and try to stay away from the public when you are sick. >> reporter: the last two stops were at cvs pharmacies in sunnyvale, at 5:30 last friday. >> it is concerning definitely but the same time you have to awaa waware of what you can and cannt do. >> reporter: symptoms include a
fever, cough, red eyes and a rash that starts on the face. they can begin up to 21 days after exposure. if you have them, call your doctor before going anywhere. the santa clara county health department says luxury, 97% of the south bay is vaccinated. >> this advisory, however, it is important because some people are not protected from measles and top of that list are bs vaccinated. >> reporter: she says the virus can linger in the air for hours after a person has left. the heightened measles alert is much worse in other parts of the country. 15 states have cases. rockland county, new york, is declaring a health emergency. anyone under 18 not vaccinated is barred from public places. >> now, ian, do we know if this patient was actually showing symptoms when they were walking around to all these other places and how did they figure o t mea? >> reporter: jessica, yeah, we don't know if they were symptomatic. what we do know is they were
treated by a doctor. they are still in the county but no longer considered a risk. >> all right. thank you very much, ian cull. taking action after a tragedy. we've learned the state will revoke the license of an east bay preschool where a toddler was killed. it's a heartbreaking story our investigative unit broke last month. macy opperman died while paying at parkside preschool in newark last october. a play structure fell right on top of her. according to inspection parkrtd. the school told us it's closing on april 19th voluntarily but denies it did anything wrong. well, one attack, one violent robbery on b.a.r.t. all within a 90-minute period on opposite ends of the bay area. now, they come. on the heels of a stabbing that happened friday so what's b.a.r.t. doing about it? how are they going toarinda sta
and that's the exact question riders are asking. >> reporter: i spoke to b.a.r.t.'s board president tonight. he says it's concerning when you hear about violent attacks on these trains but he says the board is making moves to make passengers safer. >> there was someone on the car that i was in that was mentally ill and got agitated because someone sat in the row ahead of him. >> reporter: that situation for b.a.r.t. board president didn't turn violent, but he says the three violent attacks in a four-day period is this man who is the suspect in v >> when i joined the b.a.r.t. board, we had over 40 vacancies which is more than 20% of our force. and so it difficult to you kno really seen in the trains and in the stations. >> reporter: b.a.r.t. is hiring officers. vacancies are down to 24. passengers i talked to still want to see more officers on the trains. >> never see b.a.r.t. officers
except in their vehicles driving from station to station. i mean, there ought to be a presence on the trains. >> reporter: police were on scene quickly last night when a man struck a woman in the head on the daley city train. when we got off the colma train, b.a.r.t. police were there to make the arrest and there was quick response last night when a man grabbed a woman's backpack and threw her to the ground. police arrested the man and the backpack was recovered. >> the real objective is not only to arrest people, but really to some of these crimes from happening. >> reporter: he says he is hoping to have a full police staff in a couple l of years. reporting live in arinda, cheryl hurd, nbc bay area news. >> thank you. it's only a test but a test that one day could save your life. tomorrow morning california is testing a new earthquake warning system. here's the lowdown. 11:00 a.m. tomorrow in downtown oakland near lake merritt. there's the lake right there. if you live in this yellow
highlighted zone, that includes downtown and uptown, your phone will likely be buzzing. in fact, that's the goal. send an alert to as many cell phones as possible to see how fast this warning system will work. it's similar to how amber alerts and weather alerts are issued. the man who shot a teen in the head in san francisco has been caught in southern california. it happened yesterday inside a building that houses the department of corrections. today the chp in southern california spotted the gunman's car abandoned on the freeway right henear the arizona border and a short time later they spotted the man walking on the . police say there was an exchange of gunfire but in the end, officers managed to arrest him. well, the giants open the season on thursday and they will be without their longtime leader. today, a major shakeup in the front office involving embattled ceo larry baer. major league baseball suspended baer through july 1st. this stems from that very public altercation you see there caught on camera between baer and his
wife which quickly went viral. rob dean will serve as the interim control person with major league baseball and giants board of directors. it's believed he'll keep that role even after baer returns in july. he wrote a statement accepting the decision saying in part "my unacceptable behavior fell well short of what must be demanded of every person, particularly in my position and role in the community." how do you beat the housing crunch in the bay area? thousands of people, it means ersys in berkeley asng those nbc bay area's jean elle is in overnight rv parkings. berkeley for us. jean, what's the late-night decision? i know it's still happening right behind you. >> reporter: it is, raj, and this is a divisive issue. i want to show you inside the meeting. public comment on this meeting just wrapped up but the council is taking a break from the item at moment. people on both sides have been making their case for and against the rv ban since 7:00
tonight. >> you come in and then you have the kitchen right away. >> reporter: jessica prado is living in an rv in west berkeley. >> this couch turns into a bed. as soon as i can pay off my student debt, everything i owe, i'd like to also get housing, you know? >> reporter: she's not the only one parking and living on berkeley city streets. some streets are lined with rvs. for area businesses, like the potter studio, the lineup is iv safety. >> we've had human feces in our trash, in our recycling which we have to clean out. we've received threats from the rv people, maybe just not indicative of the whole, but we have received threats where it's made our people here afraid to go out to their cars at night. >> we'll sit down when you sit down! >> reporter: rv dwellers and supporters showed up at tonight's city council meeting protesting a plan to ban rvs from parking on city streets between 2:00 and 5:00 a.m. tonight council members added a plan to require city staff to help people find housing before
they can be evicted. >> it is our intent to do kind of an initial very in-depth outreach where we're actually offering services upfront. >> reporter: council member sophie hahn also says berkeley is working with neighboring city leaders, looking for a safe space for people living in rvs to park. jean elle, nbc bay news. rain right now on storm ranger from yontville to st. helena and more rain for the forecast tomorrow. we'll show you the hour by hour forecast and when that sun finally comes back. and it was definitely the biggest shark i've ever seen. >> it's an image he'll never forget. a shark headed straight for a line of surfers. jet skiers jumped into action to try and help. also, they're getting away with it. we investigate the bizarre and illegal actions some landlords are using to evict bay area tenants.
landlords. and it as you know, housing is among our biggest concerns in the bay area. now we uncovered a serious lack of oversight of landlords and may be leaving many oakland families vulnerable to fraud. >> laws designed to protect renters are routinely broken and the senior investigative reporter has more on this story. >> reporter: salvador and his wife, gloria, have called this oakland apartment home for the past 16 years which is why they found it strange when their landlord all of a sudden claimed to live in this same building. just one floor below. >> they are liar. when someone is living downstairs, it's easy to hear a little noise. >> so if they were living here, you'd hear it. >> exactly. >> reporter: up until recently, oakland landlords who live in their own duplexes or triplexs could legally raise rent prices beyond what's allowed under rent control.
salvador was paying $1,100 a month but his landlord tried increasing the rent to $3,000. that's a nearly 200% spike. salvador, his wife, and kids, would be forced to leave, but then one day one of their relatives shot this video. they say it shows the landlord's father unloading trash bags from his van into garbage cans at the very same home where his son, the landlord, claimed to be living. so the landlord's family would actually bring garbage? >> yes. >> reporter: why would they do that? >> it's obviously they are pretending to live here. >> reporter: two years ago oakland lawmakers enacted new rules to protect renters. especially in the case of owner move-in evictions. that's when a tenant is kicked out because the landlord or landlord's relatives want to move in. now, landlords must sign paperwork under penalty of pu l perjury that they intend to move in after evicting their tenant
and continually provide proof they're actually living there. instead of renting to someone new. so are landlords following those rules? to find out, we requested eviction records from oakland's housing department. it took the city nearly a year to get us those do reviewed hundreds of records and found when it comes to owner move-in violate oakland's housing laws. landlords filed 71 owner move-in evictions last year but only 16 of those landlords submitted the required documents. michelle byrd heads oakland's housing department. so why doesn't the city seem to be enforcing these laws? >> we don't want to be the housing cops. we want to educate individuals. >> it's now been roughly two years since these laws have been in place so why hasn't your office implemented some kind of enforcement system?
>> we -- we're not -- i think one of the things we don't want to be punitive and so first and foremost is to do education outreach. >> reporter: byrd told us that's why her office is focused on reaching tout landlords who filed to comply with the city's housing laws. has that part of the process happened already? >> we have started working with landlords, yes, we have the system in place. >> reporter: after the interview, we reached out for true. the oakland housing department has not contacted a single landlord to let them know they're violating these housing laws. those landlords can face citations of up to $500. but we've also learned not one landlord has ever been cited. can you understand why some people may think the city's current system for preventing fraud is broken? >> we are improving the systems. we want to make sure that the
bad actors are dealt with. >> but in two years it doesn't seem like any bad actors have been dealt with. >> i -- i can say that we have systems in place to where we are working with individuals. >> this is both a problem for tenants and it's also a problem r rebecca kaplan is president of the oakland city council. seems like the rules are largely being ignored. >> and that is unacceptable. we you can't have fraudulent owner move-in evictions and people need to trust that the law will be honestly enforced. >> reporter: salvador got legal help from a non-profit which brought the case to oakland's city attorney's office. the city is now suing the landlord, wong fu lee, his father and mother for abusive and fraudulent behavior. the city even obtained utility bills for the landlord's apartment which shows the landlord went more than two months without using a single
drop of water. during the exact same time he claimed to be living in the apartment. we repeatedly reached out to the family through their attorney, but never heard back. a trial has been set for october. ones.dor says he's one of the the city stepped in to save his home, but he worries many other families remain at risk of losing theirs. >> the city of oakland need them, so i they deserve to be protected. >> reporter: oakland's housing department tells us it just hired a company to help educate landlords about all the laws relating to owner move-in evictions. meanwhile, the city council president tells us she'll have tough questions for oakland's housing director about the lack of enforcement when she appeared before the council for budget hearings likely within the next few months. >> now, if you have a story for our investigative unit, call

yellow, also orange. those are the heavier downpours that might actually produce lightning, even small hail. if we do see that develop, we'll definitely go into a microclimate weather alert and have updates throughout the late morning, also into the afternoon so you can see at 10:00, again, things get heavy. this would be the worst of peni sout trying to clear morninnight, we see things clear out at least from the storm system. rainfall totals about a quart tore a third on average. some of the north bay locations could get close to about half of an inch. so, my extended forecast, want to make sure you're not surprised by this. we've got that storm system for tomorrow. then our final, yes, final storm of the week gets here on thursday with another ternth to about a half inch possible. here's the dry weather raj was mentioning by friday and saturday, we get sunshine back. looks really, really nice. we have some clouds on sunday, but still looks dry at this point then a 20% chance of some

deadly for surfers. a man on a jet ski came to the rescue. stanley ss white shark that looked 16 feet long. he said the shark circled his jet ski while he was on the water sunday at maverick. seconds later drake said the shark started swimming right toward a surfer so he drove his jet ski over to scare it off. >> after i diverted the shark from going after the single surfer and picked him up, i went out and collected everyone from the water and we put as many people onto the jet ski as would fit. the ones that didn't fit hung onto the side. >> luckily no one was hurt. now, drake says he has never seen a shark that big in those waters before. well, we see the sharks but where are the big waves? the world surf league telling us tonight the window for the mavericks big surf competition is likely to close as of this weekend. no heavy surf on the horizon before sunday's deadline. this would be the third straight year without a contest. we need some big waves to come
