"today in the bay" bob redell live for us this morning. bob, how have things been going so far with the new gates? >> marcus, for the past month richmond bart has been stacking the gates to detour riders from jumping over the top and not paying fair fare. our cameras captured the teenagers sneaking through the gates at richmond pwaurtd, and one of the young women now faces charges of battery on a police officer. bart finds itself in a tough situation. they are trying to stop fair evasion which costs the agency

5:05 am
over saw 11 years ago, saying ebstein would not have served any jail time had his office not stepped in. >> they were ready to let him walk free. >> but acosta is trying to re-write history, and a draft of a federal indictment was abandoned after secret negotiations between ebstein's attorneys and acosta. ebstein was sentenced to 13 months and registered as a sex offender and made financial restitution with the victims. hour-long press conferences did little to quiet the course of democrats calling for his resignation. >> you choose child rapists over the victims in this indication.

5:17 am
valley in san francisco. some of the venture funds helping to start ups come from less than desirable sources, in what we call sovereign sources, where they want to reinvest their money so the money going into some of the startups are coming from places that you may not necessarily agree with the human rights. we'll talk to john about that. >> that sounds good, because a lot of folks want to know where their money is. >> absolutely. 5:17 for you right now. a major birthday celebration in san francisco today. lucy mirigian is turning 113 years old. >> bless her heart. >> this is video from her 112th birthday, and a few years back the u.s. government demanded proof she was still alive so she

5:19 am
6:00 to 83 at noon and we know it's going to be hotter than yesterday. as you make plans to get outside we have a moderate amount of tree and grass pollen on the pollen report today so our temperatures are warming up for some of the south bay counties, part of the south bay county up to 70 degrees in gilroy today. we will have slightly warmer temperatures in concord and pittsburg. even though the inland valleys will be heating up, the peninsula will stay cooler with half moon bay at 60 today. san francisco reaching the upper 60s, and some 80s for much of the north bay. as we warm things up, as we go closer to the weekend, high pressure builds and it will get more of an offshore wind flow going into saturday and sunday, but things change going into next week.

5:32 am
made, and we don't know how that is connected because police say nobody was injured. and then raids could reportedly take place in several cities this weekend including parts of the bay area. pete, this is not the first time a city here in the bay area dealt with those threats. >> reporter: yeah, that's right, marcus. we were able to confirm the reports with nbc news of the potential immigration raids taking place this weekend and san francisco may be one of the cities targeted as a result of the one of the immigration raids. we are going into the details we have so far this morning. according to nbc news, two senior department of homeland security officials say they could conduct the immigration raids this weekend, which were postponed from three weeks ago. 2,000 families in ten major cities are expected to be
5:33 am
targeted across the u.s. as part of the immigration raids, and the "miami herald" reported san francisco could be on the list. these are families with final orders of deportation who crossed the border recently. "the times" reporting we could expect immigration attorneys to file motions on the cases which could delay the removal of the families but nbc news reports these raids could take place as early as sunday. >> a lot of people will be watching out to see what happens with this, pete. thank you. vice president mike pence is in southern california and he's going to be at the border this morning talking about the massive drug seizure which i.c.e. was part of. pence visited the vandenberg airport base yesterday and attended a private fund-raiser.
5:34 am
and then the death of a decorated scholar who was originally from oakland. her body was found in an abandoned bunker in greece last week. she worked at an institute in germany, and bay area family members went to kraet to help search for her. >> it's hard to talk about her in the past tense, because it's hard to believe that she's gone. >> investigators say she was last seen as heading out for a run and they believe she was suffocated or choked to death. she was found in an abandon network of world war ii bunkers that only locals are familiar with. right now there are bullet holes in a store window, and it's the same homeless shelter
5:35 am
where a robbery took place this week. a new security video shows men running inside, and a man, eric wilson, was shot and killed by a stray bullet. >> it's hard to deal with that, but we are just going to keep moving. what can we do? you know, it really hurts me. >> wilson was a regular at the shelter. another man was shot and is in stable condition. police are continuing to search for a gunman. we are following up on a legal move to stop the waterfront navigation center from going up in san francisco. opponents filed a lawsuit aimed at blocking city plans. the city wants to put the center on the embarcadero. city leaders approved the plan but neighbors are concerned the homeless center will bring drugs and crime to the area. 5:35 now. to the latest on the recovery
5:36 am
efforts after those hundreds of quakes shook southern california. water is flowing again near the epicenter. a lot of folks have been without water since that quake hit last friday. that recovery is going to take some time. so we know after a disaster that the recovery takes quite sometime. we will follow that story. right now we are following the first burst of traffic we traditionally see in san jose. you see it on the map as well, and that should clear up probably in the next ten minutes and then start to build again in 30 to 40 minutes. it's a lighter build. southbound 101 coming towards 880, and somebody called chp and said there was a big pothole in the middle lane and wanted to warn folks, and chp will not do
5:37 am
any traffic breaks now. we will follow that and let you know. there's a predictable build for the toll plaza for now. we know people are thinking about their weekend plans. >> yeah, let's make plans because it's going to be all about the weather this weekend. we will have a wide range in temperatures. the coastal areas stay in the upper 60s. the bay warms up to 86 degrees and the inland valleys will reach into the low 90s. on sunday we are going to do it all over again, still keeping the clouds and the fog near the coast while the inland valleys are really going to be hot once again. we will have milder weather at the los altos wine festival happening on saturday. it will be a little warmer on sunday. festivals going on around san francisco, and it will reach in the upper 60s during the afternoon and cool off at night so make sure you are going to
5:38 am
have a jacket if you are out late in the evening. and then santa cruz, a couple clouds on friday as we reach 79 degrees. sunshine for most of the rest of the weekend. if you want to go hiking in the woods, that's reaching 73 degrees on saturday, and sunday up to 76 degrees. just cool during the early morning hours. look how hot it will be in pass robles this weekend. let me know what your weekend plans are on twitter, facebook, and also on instagram. we will talk about today's forecast coming up in three minutes. >> always like to see your adventures. thank you, kari. coming up, a dire warning if you own a dog. a peninsula woman learned the hard way what not to feed her k-9 companion. in washington, time is running out to make some very

5:42 am
a similar look on dublin 580 westbound. north of there, contra costa county still moving smoothly. we will show you where there are a few folks backing up. here's a follow-up to a story getting looks online. there's a mix up where a woman gave birth to their baby without them knowing it. >> they said one of their embryos along with another embryo were mistakenly implanted in total stranger also wanting to have her baby. that mother gave birth to baby boys not knowing it was from embryos from people she never met.
5:43 am
>> she gave birth to twins, and one of them is yours. >> this couple did not meet their baby until he was six weeks old. the other couple does not want to be identified at this point but a third couple thought the babies were their twins. the clinic is facing several lawsuits and you can see the whole story on the "today" show coming up after "today in the bay." it's a heartbreaking story. tonight we are hearing from the california couple accusing of the fertility mix up, and that's what we were just telling you about, but this story, here's a warning if you feed your dog certain things, it could be dangerous. an 18-month-old golden doodle named monte was given ice cream, and she chose the low-sugar kind
5:44 am
but didn't realize the artificial sweetener inside of it, so the vet said come right away. that dog cannot deal with all the ingredients in its body, and it can damage the brain as well as liver. >> i thought i was giving him a sweet summer treat and turns out it was toxic. >> the ingredient is in ice cream, chewing gum and peanut butter. be aware of that, dog owners.

5:45 am
a century old. the judge seized on the report ordering pg & e to respond to the claims. when they do we will let you know. >> despite pg & e's best efforts to get the world out about fire assessments, it appears some people are getting caught off guard here. earlier this month the utility rolled out its prevention efforts in the bay area using helicopters to check high fire danger areas, and a lot of people in oakland hills are mistakenly thinking the choppers are covering a crime scene or some other assessment, but they should continue through the end of the month. a bill calls for $10 billion in taxpayer money to help state utilities cover wildfire costs. critics say that is a gift for
5:46 am
utilities who are responsible for some of the wildfires. governor newsom, who supports the bill says utilities will be required to meet safety standards in order to abg session -- access the money. 5:46 for you right now. the government running out of money. >> less than a month for congress to take action. >> yeah, july 11th, the house adjourns at the end of the month and doesn't come back until september, which means there are a number of critical deadlines. first, president trump has to convince congress to raise the borrowing cap. there's a number of programs that would run out of money come september, and mr. trump wants congress to pass or start working on the usmca, the agreement between the u.s., canada and mexico that would replace nafta and he needs the
5:47 am
democrats' help in doing all of these things. but relations are at a low and could get worse. the immigration sweeps which trump delayed are now back on and that could further damage relations with democrats. we will have more in a live report coming up. i.c.e. officers have been instructed to detain people who have had their day in court and have been told by the legal system to leave the country but didn't, and there could be, quote, collateral arrests as well. meanwhile the clock is running down on so many of the government operations as well, and speaker pelosi defending accusations she's not listening close enough to younger more liberal women in her party. after the summit, president
5:48 am
trump says he will have a rose garden press conference about the census, he wants the census to ask everybody if they are citizens, and the supreme court says you can't do that. we will watch everything that is happening in washington, and as always you can follow me on twitter, i'm @scottmcgrew. this is the most adorable video you will see all week. you see that guy there? it's one of the five additions to the oregon zoo, one of the flamingo chicks taking its first steps. they are not pink when they are born. they are reportedly eating nine times a day. while they are behind the scenes at the bird nursery now they will join adult flamingos later this summer, and by then they will be pink because they will be eating buckets of krill the

rest of them eat. we have some cloudy weather. it's low visibility right now at the golden gate bridge as you are heading out of the north bay into san francisco or from san francisco into the north bay. this is a live look at emeriville with the low clouds. check out the forecast at the bottom of the screen. we have enjoyed nice weather, and it's heating up in parts of the bay. as you head to the fruitville bart station, you need a jacket for the morning, and then in the afternoon it will be in the low 70s. here we are at 10:00, and we are seeing mostly 60s and 70s, and then this is when those

this is the car two thieves used when they ran over that tourist. it happened tuesday at the allegiant of honor parking lot. the victim from out of state spotted the suspects breaking into his car and tried to take a picture, but when the thieves saw him taking a picture they tried to run him over. that victim is recovering from life-threatening injuries in the hospital. a ballot measure for the ban on e-cigarettes, and joule is supporting the measure. the board of supervisors approved the ban on the sale of vaping products last month. and then 30 miles off of san francisco's coast, and right now invasive mice are killing off a
