[ bleep ] a great white! >> some local fishermen pull in a great white shark near alcatr alcatraz. the boat's captain tell us they had no idea what was on the line until the shark surfaced. >> never in a gazillion years i would have thought i'd hook that in the bay, never. >> the fishermen say the shark carried their boat about two meals. it took over an hour, and seven people to reel it in. it was a catch and release. ooh, who gets that little prong thing out of the mouth? it is illegal to fish white sharks in california, but as they say, they weren't expecting

5:14 am
afternoon. upper 70s pi noon. we'll reach the low 80s there but much hotter in the valleys. we'll talk about that coming up in less than five minutes. headed over to the peninsula shot, west 92 picking up the volume. you can see the lights on the high-rise as well. we'll show you what's going on at another westbound bridge. i think you know what i'm talking about. good morning, i'm frank holland at cnbc headquarters. here are today's top business headlines. wall street is set for a bit of a mixed start to the trading day. but improfs improving a short time ago, looking positive now. yesterday stock eked out small gains, enough to push the dow, nasdaq and s&p to new record highs. today's watch list, data on retail sales, import prices and manufacturing plus earnings from two big banks, jpmorgan chase and goldman sachs as well as johnson & johnson. and all three already reporting beating wall street estimates. executives from amazon, apple, facebook and google will all be on capitol hill today testifying before a house committee on the tremendous
5:15 am
market power they have. it's the first high-profile encounter between silicon valley and congress since the trump administration targeted these companies over potential anti-trust behavior. the hearing could set the stage for more regulation but unlikely to generate the buzz of previous hearings when facebook ceo mark zuckerberg and google's ceo sindhar pachai were grilled over data and privacy issues. tesla is shaking up its line-up once again, killing off the standard versions of the model s and model x and will now only offer a long-range and performance version, that means the model s starts at 80 grand and the model x at 85,000. tesla's also cutting the base price on the model 3 by $2,000 to roughly $30,000, when incentives and tax cuts are included. one more change. tesla's also making the ludacris package which allows the model s to go from 0 to 60 in 2.4 seconds by standard option. so law camera, i think when you're headed to tahoe, that will get through.
5:16 am
>> i was just thinking i won't be so late to work anymore. a little pedal to the metal there, frank. >> thank you, frank. 30,000 doesn't sound bad for a model 3. 5:15. as soon as today, san francisco may become the latest city to turn the page on overdue fees. earlier this year, the city's library commission pulled the trigger. today supervisors vote on whether to approve it. if a plan does get approved and fees go away, people would no longer be allowed to borrow new materials if they're late on something else. if you're headed out to fill up your tank this morning for the commute, be ready to feel some pain at the pump. just the last week, gas prices have increased at least five cents, due in part to higher crude oil prices and robust demand in the summer. according to aaa, average price for regular gas in san jose is $3.71. in san francisco, $3.82. in oakland, $3.79. happening today, we hope you're hungry for breakfast.
5:17 am
ihop celebrating its 61st anniversary today with a sweet deal for customers. the breakfast chain is serving up short stacks of its original buttermilk pancakes for 58 cents in honor of the chain's founding in 1958. less than what a short stack originally cost when ihop opened its doors the dine-in only deal is good from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. >> i didn't know pancakes could be taken to go in the first place. caught on camera, a huge waterspout off the coast of corsica. take a look. a waterspout is a tornado that forms over water. they're relatively common on the french island, which has been hit by recent severe storms, but nonetheless, an interesting picture there. >> isn't it? it's interesting. >> it's huge. >> from a distance. >> a lot of water spouts are a lot smaller than that. that was really wide. >> perspective. >> exactly. >> because of social media, we're seeing everything these days. >> for sure. >> hopefully you snap a picture
5:18 am
of the sunrise this morning. >> there you go. >> if you can't see it in san francisco, it's because we have a camera above the fog, and so it's a beautiful shot this morning from our sutro tower camera. i can watch that all day. let's head inland to unit lin. a lot of people already up and out the door, going to work, and it's all clear here in the tri-valley. it's also going to be another hot day, so as we check out our temperature trend, if you're on your way out the door to the dublin b.a.r.t. station, it is only about 60 degrees and then if you're heading out later, it will be about 71 degrees at 10:00. at noon it is 80 degrees and warming up more from there with our south bay high temperatures reaching up to 87 degrees in gilroy. for the east bay, 92 in pittsburg. vallejo reaching 81, and we'll see some mid-70s in san mateo today, while palo alto reaches 82. the embarcadero today up to 66 degrees, and the north bay reaching 88 in santa rosa. so it's feeling like summer.
5:19 am
we're stuck in a pattern. head somewhere cool like the a's game this evening, and they're playing the mariners today so it's going to be at first pitch at 67 degrees, really nice and comfortable, a lot of sunshine, cooling down as the game goes on. if you're wanting some cooler weather, you have the day off, you want to head to the beach, santa cruz will only see the high temperatures in the upper 60s later today. so we have our weather pattern set up with a cool and cloudy coast, and the warm valleys. throughout the week, no major changes here. as we go toward the weekend, it's going to start to cool off just a bit. we'll see a storm system approaching the pacific northwest. for us that means a stronger ocean breeze, but it only cools us down a few more degrees. this is our seven-day forecast with temperatures inland holding stead y in the mid to upper 80s. san francisco looking at more 60s in the forecast so nothing really changing here but i think we'll take it. headed over to mike, updating the crash off the bay bridge. >> that's right.
5:20 am
all the folks will take for the rest of the bay, it's good. we have speed sensors in green all around the bay, in tri-valley. the only slowing out of the altamont, typical and clear toward livermore proper. as we zoom toward the city we have the crash west 80 at harrison getting off that bridge. no lanes affected. that crash has cleared. someone was just reporting a hit-and-run. if you saw anything in the area, go ahead and call that in to chp or san francisco pd. a little slowing at the bay bridge toll plaza as the volume builds. right now it's just about the time they turn the metering lights on. they probably have because all the cash lanes i can tell by the stackup they have opened. one other factor we watch the clouds descend upon the bay bridge. this is the san mateo bridge, the low clouds are touching the tower. i'll show you that shot coming up. great shot getting to work on time if you get to transit on time. back to you. coming up, meet a bay area real estate agent who says he can get you into a house for under $500,000. that should be interesting.

5:25 am
a judge is expected to announce a decision on thursday. all right, so if you're a first-time home buyer, you probably know the chance of landing a $400,000 house in the bay area, that's got to be impossible. >> but one expert tells us it doesn't mean there's none out there. nick guzman works mostly in the san francisco and east bay market. he's familiar with zillow's latest eye-popping numbers, not a single $4 225,000 in san francisco or san mateo county. there's one in all of santa clara county but alameda county has more than two dozen such homes. he says there are deals out there, if you know who to talk to. >> i have a lot of relationships with a lot of other people and sometimes i am able to kind of take a look at the properties pre-mls, you know, and that way i'm able to identify the kind of properties that will match up will some of my clients. >> i think i want to see this house. >> hmm. well, there's more hope. the bay area did see 1% year

5:32 am
east bay a deadly helicopter crash during a lesson. >> "today in the bay's" bob redell is live at the airport with the latest on the investigation. good morning, bob. >> reporter: good morning, to you, scott and laura. when the ntsb arrives at hayward executive airport in a few hours from now, they will head out to the runway, where that wreckage still sits and they will try to figure out whether this crash was the result of a mechanical error, pilot error or something else. the aircraft on your tv screen was a four-seater helicopter, a robinson r44. it went down around 2:30 yesterday afternoon, landed on its side in the grass just off run of the runways. two men were on board, a flight instructor and his student. the flight instructor, he was 62-year-old wayne prodger, of sunnyvale, he died in the crash. his student was critically injured, but was still able to walk over to first responders
5:33 am
who put him on a gurney and transported him to the hospital. >> it's my understanding they were hovering, something unique to helicopters where they're in the air, stay in one place and it's one of the things that you work on as a student pilot. >> reporter: we have been told that the robinson r44 is considered to be the gold standard when it comes to helicopters. wayne prodger, a flight instructor was well-known in the bay area as an avid motorcycle rider who was very active and considered to be an all-around great guy. reporting live here in hayward, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> very tragic. let's hope they get some answers. thank you, bob. 5:33 right now. a public hearing on a proposed b.a.r.t. station in fremont 40 years in the making. the proposed irvington station would be a stop between the two executive fremont b.a.r.t. stations.

5:34 am
the b.a.r.t. train going on behind me. they just pass through here at this point but the earliest there could be an actual b.a.r.t. station here at this location would be five years, but when you're talking about a project that was first floated 40 years ago, it kind of seems like it's right around the corner. i want to show you a map of the area that we're talking about, this is the proposed site for the everyonington b.a.r.t. station, south of the washington boulevard overpass on the west side of osgood road in fremont, and it would serve the area between the existing fremont station to the north and the warm springs b.a.r.t. station to the south. today the fremont city council will hear public comment on the station area plan, that is the plan for the streets, the parking, the residential development all around the station site. b.a.r.t. first studies this location in the 1970s but only approved it back in 2003 so that part is a done deal. the station is coming. the funding became available in 2014, when alameda county voters aproved measure bb. so today's meeting is not about the station.
5:35 am
that conversation is over. it's about what happens after the station, so really a big concern for folks who live in fremont, and perhaps for b.a.r.t. commuters who are passing through and maybe would like to be able to stop here. the meeting is tonight at fremont city hall at 7:00. in fremont, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> all right, it's a busy one in fremont. thank you, kris. happening today, fremont city council will vote on a controversial plan for new navigation center. flyers are being passed out requesting residents flood that meeting to voice concerns. the center will be either at the parking lot behind city hall in downtown or on surplus city property next to a plant street in the northern part of the city. under the plan, about 45 homeless people would be able to stay at the center for up to six months at a time. also new this morning in san francisco, a proposed safe place to park for people living in rvs. this would be located on geneva avenue at balboa's upper yards across from the b.a.r.t. balboa park station. according to "the examiner" the facility would offer social

5:38 am
