tv   Today in the Bay  NBC  July 15, 2019 5:00am-6:01am PDT

5:00 am
that you want. good morning to you. thanks for joining us. i'm laura garcia. >> and i'm scott mcgrew in for marcus. let's get a check of your weather on this monday morning. >> good morning. it's another warm one in the inland areas, while the coast stays cool. let's head out the door in pleasant hill, if you're going to the b.a.r.t. station it's cool to start with mid-60s and heating up again today. so short sleeves, feeling summer-like all throughout the afternoon, and as we look at our south bay high temperatures, morgan hill reaching the upper 80s, but we have some low 80s in downtown san jose. more on this in a few minutes and mike, you're tracking a crash in fremont. >> that's right, kari. overall green sensors around the bay, a nice smooth drive. over in fremont, 680 around the mission grade we have reports of a crash and there's a big rig on the shoulder. it doesn't sound like there are major injuries but i'll watch updates from chp. no slowing on the sensors yet. a smooth drive through contra costa county, emerging with alameda county at the bay bridge, that's a smooth flow of traffic and 580, expect the
5:01 am
volume of traffic could be substantial and it is moving at the speed limit out of the altamont pass and in here through dublin. back to you. developing now, we are waiting to see if there are going to be i.c.e. raids today in san francisco particular. i.c.e. claims it would target as many as 2,000 undocumented immigrants who have already been ordered by the courts to leave the country. >> "today in the bay's" craig boswell live in washington, d.c. the raids are leaving communities certainly on edge. >> scott and laura, good morning, and that is what critics say is the goal of these raids is to stoke fear in immigrant communities. as promised by president trump, or really as advertized by president trump, immigration officials begun raids targeting some 2,000 undocumented immigrants, as you mentioned those ordered by the courts removed from the country or those with criminal backgrounds. the raids possibly ten different cities getting under way but getting under way a whole lot slower than advertised by the
5:02 am
administration. there's not this video evidence of any arrests, and critics are saying that these raids are different from those in the past and undocumented immigrants around those targeted may also be rounded up, not just those targeted and that goes into what critics say this is stoking fear in the immigrant community. on the sunday talk shows, the acting i.c.e. director ken cuccinelli defended the raids. when asked if families would be separated, if children would be removed from families, he would only say that families are part of those that may be targeted for i.c.e. agents. that's all he would say, saying it was an operational part of that. but keep this in mind, guys. in 2018, according to i.c.e. statistics, there were some more than 256,000 people deported, so 2,000 is a very small number. that plays to the critics saying that this is just strictly
5:03 am
intended to stoke fear in the imgrant community. back to you. >> craig, reporting in washington, thanks. back here in the bay area, immigrant groups say they're not letting their guard down yet. >> sharon katsuda is live in san francisco to show us why immigrant groups are still on alert. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the i.c.e. office here behind me will open at 7:30, but some say that the undocumented immigrants here in the bay area are still living in fear, wondering when and if i.c.e. will come knocking on their door. at the mission district yesterday, it was noticeably quiet. immigrant support groups say for the past few weeks, because of the possible raids, they've warned the communities to call and report any i.c.e. activity, and warned immigrants about their rights. in san rafael, i.c.e. was reportedly spotted over the weekend, but so far, no word of any raids or arrests in the bay area. >> we were ready not only this week but we were ready weeks before. we thought if i.c.e. is going to strike they'll strike on a day
5:04 am
not announced by the president. >> we have could do something. if i have to stand out in the hot sun and hand out flyers, i'm going to do that. >> reporter: they're not necessarily undocumented, they have through the courts. that's the target of the raids. i.c.e. made a handful of arrests in new york yesterday. these i.c.e. raids are expected to take place throughout this week, so some immigrant support groups are telling us that people are still having high anxiety of what may happen later this week. reporting live in san francisco, i'm sharon katsuda, "today in the bay." >> sharon, thank you much. of course we will continue to follow the latest on all of these stories. for the most up to date information on immigration, head over to our website, nbcbayarea.com. it is 5:04 and happening today, sentencing for the sonoma county man investigators believe killed a young couple on a north
5:05 am
bay beach 15 years ago. sean gallon entered a no contest plea last thursday. authorities say he shot and killed two young camp counselors from ohio on a secluded jenner beach in 2004. the two were engaged. he's also accused of trying to kill a plan in guerneville and later killing his brother in forestville. in exchange for the no contest plea, prosecutors will not seek the death penalty. a 4-year-old girl was pepper sprayed during a sprite. >> it happened at a 7-eleven at monterey. kris sanchez joins us live with what witnesses saw. >> reporter: hi there, laura and scott. this is the 7-eleven where it happened, last night before 11:00 when it happened and one of the witnesses was the employee who was working inside that store at the time. now this is video from right after, when the police started investigating. they were investigating an argument and how it escalated between two women, to the point
5:06 am
that that child was sprayed with pepper spray. at this point, it is not clear if the woman who sprayed the pepper spray intended for the child to be hit. the little girl and her mom or the woman she was with ran into the store looking for help, looking for water to wash out their eyes. >> two girls were fighting and one girl pepper sprayed the other one. she was all red and the other girl pepper sprayed her and they ran inside to grab some water. >> reporter: now police were asking questions both here at the 7-eleven store on monterey road and at an apartment complex nearby. if anyone is facing charges at this point, police have not told us that but we will keep asking. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> that will be frightening for that family, thank you, kris. prosecutors expected to present rebuttal witnesses in the deadly ghost ship warehouse fire trial.
5:07 am
last week, defendant derek almena wrapped up his testimony. almena was at times remorseful, at times defiant. he also placed blame on the city of oakland and the owners of of warehouse for the deadly fire. once the rebuttal testimony concludes, a break will begin until the week of july 29th, when closing arguments are scheduled. also happening today, amazon, other retailers hoping to set off a bit of a summer shopping frenzy. >> amazon's fifth annual prime day sale is under way. the online retailer is promising more than a million deals and hopes to avoid a website crash that hindered sales last year. to capitalize on the deals you have to have an amazon prime membership. dozens of other retailers including target and walmart running some sales today in that big effort to compete. the race for spending comes as traditional retailers face a tough year, more than 7,400 stores have closed their doors so far in 2019. >> amazon created this new spike
5:08 am
and massive implications for retail in other retailers have to have their share of that wallet. if that wallet share goes on, i think it's going to see target and walmart and best buy suffer even more. >> several employees at an amazon plant outside minneapolis plan to strike today, calling for better wages and working conditions. however, amazon says it will not have an impact on operations. the "today" show will have much more about all the deals being offered, that's all coming up at 7:00 a.m., right after "today in the bay." what will the weather be like for the amazon delivery people? let's check in with kari. >> it's going to be nice and sunny and really hot in the valleys. drink lots of water throughout the day. a live look at dublin as you get ready to head out the door. we're seeing a lot of people on the way to work on this monday morning. if you're going to the dublin b.a.r.t. station, it's going to be a comfortable, cool start, with some lower 60s, but it's going to heat up fast, going from 60 to 80 degrees by 11:00, and then going up even more from
5:09 am
there. as belook at all of our high temperatures for this afternoon, we're going to see antioch reaching 90 degrees, mostly upper 80s for the inland areas, and some 60s continuing for san francisco. we'll take a look ahead, see the rest of the week's forecast in a few minutes. mike, you're seeing slowing through the tri-valley. >> i am kari because of the crash we talked about. over the last few minutes chp has only got the one crash incident reported, that's the only spot with anything but green but as we zoom in over here, kari, you showed 580 and all that traffic coming through dublin and potentially cutting down toward 84, where it does join with 680, just before the crash. let's check with our partners at waze, where i've seen a bunch of reports come in over the last few minutes. a smooth drive up into the area but once you get there, waze reports there's a big backup around highway 84 and we've got about ten reports coming in over the last ten minutes from our wazers. we thank this unnamed wazer who did give the report over the last two minutes in the backup right there on the approach, you saw it turn from yellow to red,
5:10 am
that is the flow is jamming you up and we'll calculate some travel times and show you what shapes up. back to you. >> thank you, mike. >> 5:09. coming up, there's a new miionaire in the bay area and no, is not because they own stock in a tech company. south bay liquor store that sold a really lucky winning ticket. and -- ♪ >> and the beatles are sort of back together, where the mini reunion of paul mccartney and ri ringo starr happened. we'll tell you all about it coming up. show me the crown.

5:13 am
good monday morning. another nice day ahead. right now at 5:13, but it will be heating up and quickly. here is a look at martinez for your day planner. with some mid-60s at 7:00 but going from the mid-60s to the uper 80s by 1:00 today. try to get out there early. we'll talk about the rest of the forecast in less than five minutes. we see traffic starting to pick up the volume toward the richmond-san rafael bridge westbound of course is this drive. west at the bay bridge, we see more of a crowd as well. we'll show you that and update the crash going on through the fremont sunol area. good morning. i'm rahel solomon at cnbc headquarters. here are today's top business headlines. wall street is set to open slightly higher this morning, despite data out of china showing growth in the world second largest economy slowed this spring. the markets are coming up
5:14 am
positive friday that saw the dow nasdaq, and s&p 500 posted fresh record highs. on the watch list, data, retail sales, manufacturing, housing and the consumer. earnings season gets under way with citigroup's numbers this morning. actually they just posted the numbers about five minutes ago. american airlines will keep the boeing 737 max off its schedule until at least november 3rd, two months longer than it had planned. american is canceling roughly 115 flights per day. the airline is confident the max will be recertified by the faa. united has extended cancellations until early november. the "wall street journal" reporting that fixing the max's flight control software and completing other steps will likely stretch into 2020. and barney's, new york, is exploring a bankruptcy filing as it struggled with high rent and changes in consumer taste. reports say that the nearly 100-year-old store could file for chapter 11 in the coming weeks. barney's has 15 flagship regional and boutique department stores in the u.s. including on madison avenue here in new york, beverly hills, san francisco and chicago as well, this would be one of the highest profile victims of
5:15 am
the downturn in retail. sears, toys "r" us and jamboree also filing for bankruptcy in the past year. scott and laura, back to you. >> so many big names. thanks a lot. we have no idea who holds a million-dollar powerball ticket purchased in san jose for saturday's drawing. >> you can probably assume they want it that way, right? at any rate the winner correctly picking all five winning numbers, except the powerball. they bought their ticket at the 7-eleven on moore park avenue in san jose. the store gets up to one-half percent of the prize value, it amounts to about $6,000, maybe $600,000. as parents can attest, coaxing little ones into the pool for their first swimming lesson can be a challenge. >> it helps to have experts on hand. rush park sacramento, some real life mermaids made things easy. swim lessons were part of the california mermaid convention, an event that's only been around
5:16 am
for five years in sacramento but everybody seemed to agree it's making waves. >> the mermaid convention but in sacramento. not really in oakland. how do they get there? it's a mystery. >> good question. >> train. >> it was so hot outside. >> you were in the pool anyway. we can make this into a convention. >> s.s.minnow. >> it's going to be another day like yesterday, where we see a wide range in temperatures and as we take a live look in oakland as the sun rises, no clouds to start out and we are going to see it heating up quickly again today. so as we get a look at our park forecast, if you're going out to some of the parks, playgrounds, enjoying your summer in oakly, it will be in the morning starting out clear, nice, upper 60s, but it will already start to warm up by 9:00. we're at 82 degrees at 11:00, and it's going to be a hot afternoon.
5:17 am
89 degrees at 1:00 p.m. but before you step out there, make sure you take the allergy medication's eshl medication especially if you're allergic to the tree pollen. everything else is fairly low at this point, a lot of tree pollen floating through the air. let's go throughout our day for all of our microclimates and see how our temperatures shape up. so in danville, at 9:00 we're at 66 degrees. san francisco right at about 60 degrees. heading into the upper 60s at noon, while we start to see a few low 80s in spots like concord and fairfield. also in san jose going into the rest of the day, there will be a couple of spots reaching the low 90s at 4:00 to 5:00, and then cooling down as we approach sunset, feeling much more comfortable, and we'll all drop back down into the upper 50s and low 60s. this is our typical summertime weather pattern, with high pressure across the desert southwest, and as we go throughout the rest of the week, no major changes here, but there will be an area of low pressure approaching the pacific northwest. it could bring in some slight
5:18 am
cooling for the weekend but it doesn't look like major cooling at this point. we're looking at some 80s for all of our inland valleys and even a few low 90s a couple of days especially to start out this week. as we check out san francisco, some upper 60s over the next several days. and then as we head over to mike, you're saying there was a problem on 680. >> kari, it's that crash at sunol into fremont. in the corridor of the tri-valley. everything else is green. changes at the bay bridge. traffic coming out of the altamont no surprises through dub lib but the cut-through for 84 as well as 680 south, those merge just before the crash, and that's the big issue. you see the slowing on the sensors here. our friends at waze timed things out using their technology and we're looking at a couple of similar drives over here. now the blue drive, that takes you right down 680 through the area with the crash and the backup, takes 48 minutes from dublin and san ramon area in toward fremont but watch this.
5:19 am
the purple route which looks the same from our view here, waze times it out with a ten-minute advantage, 15 minutes better now. it's a subtle difference. waze will guide you along that way. nbc bay area is the team that will reveal it right there and the team i hope you'll join. we'll track the changes and the timing. back to our other map system the bigger view, the drive through concord, and walnut creek, a smooth drive toward the bay bridge toll plaza where we see the shift. we have the cash lanes and the fastrak lanes slowing down. the left approach still showing a lighter drive. back to you. >> thank you, mike. next and new, an intense search for a woman missing east of fresno. she was camping. her husband and family asking for help this morning. the reason they believe she was abducted. but first our team is always on social media. check out this photo of a san francisco sunset on our instagram page. follow nbc bay area on facebook, instagram and twitter. you're watching "today in the bay." you can't fake the goodness of real strawberries.

5:32 am
they have through the court system and they're the target of these raids. we're hearing that i.c.e. made some arrests in new york yesterday, and these i.c.e. raids are expected to take place throughout this week, so we're told that many undocumented immigrants are concerned about what could happen later this week. reporting live in san francisco, i'm sharon katsuda, "today in the bay." >> thank you very much, sharon. in mexico, they're now saying they'll welcome any i.c.e. related deportees with open arms. >> the people, the mexicans who are going to be deported are going to find in mexico an opportunity for a job, and support from the mexican government. >> over the weekend, the mexican foreign minister said he's expecting 1,800 deportees. he also plans to hire 300 attorneys and 100 consultants to help assist all deported mexicans. of course one big part of the immigration debate continues to be those conditions at u.s. detention facilities.
