6:00 am
thanks for joining us. i'm laura garcia. >> i'm scott mcgrew, marcus washington particularly enjoying his summer, he has the day off. but kari hall is in, telling us about summer. >> i vote for 4:00 start of the school day. at 4:30 i'm here. >> drop the kids off at school, go to work. >> right, that would be great, but not for them. so let's get started this morning with a live look outside from emeryville, looking toward the bay bridge, and we are starting out with some clouds here and there. your morning commute in antioch starts out clear. low 60s. nice and cool now but it's going to heat up again today. we'll have some low 90s there, so i'll talk more about that. mike, now you have a new crash at the bay bridge? >> i do. we heard about a new crash somewhere in this stretch. i don't see it on camera. it may be closer to the toll plaza but i've been watching all lanes. they do move right now been we'll track it. the bridge crew can usually clear lanes quickly despite the big backup here. we'll track that, but there is one crash reported at the toll
6:01 am
plaza, another crash in the center divide as folks are heading off at harrison, sorry, the split and that will be a distraction. overall, a smooth, easy drive. right there, concord is the other really tough spot but we're seeing recovery now. they cleared lanes about five minutes ago, south 242 has recovery now, more traffic headed down through walnut creek interchange. highway 4 and south 242 now will show more traffic flowing easier. scott, back to you. racist, that's what more than half of congress has decided about president trump after he told four female lawmakers to go back to their countries. tracie potts is live on capitol hill with how this could play out on the campaign trail. good morning. >> hi, good morning. remember their country is the united states because they're all u.s. citizens and that was a big part of why there was such an uproar about this, scott, but now the president is headed to north carolina this evening for a rally, where he will take with
6:02 am
him the label given to him by the house of representatives of racist attack, which could actually embolden some of his supporters down south. >> the resolution is adopted. >> reporter: but not without a fight. >> i request that the gentlewoman's words be taken down. >> i abandon the chair. >> reporter: the house of representatives, including four republicans, formally condemning president trump for telling four of their colleagues, women of color, all americans, to go back home to their countries. >> those comments are racist. >> i know racism when i see it. i know racism when i feel it. >> the president is not a racist. >> reporter: president trump declared on twitter "i don't have a racist bone in my body!" the house speaker rebuked for personally attacking the president. the senate's top republican urging everyone, including the president, to dial it down. >> it's about time we lowered
6:03 am
the temperature all across the board. >> reporter: president trump insists it's these four lawmakers whose words should be condemned. >> you look at what they've said. i have clips right here, the most vile, horrible statements about our country. >> reporter: tonight, he campaigns in north carolina, the deep south, where racism has a long and painful history. >> there's still a lot of seeds that are fermenting in this race issue that donald trump waters. >> reporter: in washington -- >> it's all politics. >> reporter: lawmakers are trying to get back to work. now on their agenda is impeachment, articles of impeachment filed by a texas congressman right after that contentious vote, but scott, we don't know exactly where they're going with that. >> tracie potts in washington, thank you. bay area congresswoman
6:04 am
jackie speier and mahershala ali spoke out about religious tolerance during yesterday's event in washington. she said it is important to draw attention to the issue. >> it's an opportunity for us to recommit to it in the united states and around the world as well. >> the discussion also included testimonials from survivors of religious persecution. 6:04. protests at fremont city hall at a meeting where the council is considering creating a navigation center to serve the homeless population. some folks there are saying not near my home. "today in the bay's" kris sanchez joins us close to one of those proposed sites. it's actually i understand right behind city hall? >> reporter: yeah, this is the parking lot behind city hall. you can see city hall behind me. there is a gentleman already living here at this site, but as you might imagine, neither this site nor the other site are sitting well with a lot of folks who live nearby. hundreds of people did show up in person to talk to the city
6:05 am
council to protest outside and then to speak inside the council chambers and in fact, there were so many people that they didn't even fit inside. the city wants to do something to address a homeless population that they say grew 27% in the last two years. this navigation center would house up to 45 people for six months or less, while they receive on site services, and transition into more permanent housing. the parking lot behind city hall where we are on capitol avenue is one site. the other is a city owned lot on decoto road near reagan nursery. as you can imagine, there are strong opinions on all sides. >> i don't want homeless people running around here tipping my towards when i'm not home. >> everybody says it's a great idea, but not in my neighborhood, so that is the challenge is finding a place that's going to be most acceptable. >> you have to ask yourself is, if you were down and out, and in trouble, wouldn't you want the services to be offered to you?
6:06 am
>> reporter: the city council didn't take any action last night because in fact the navigation center item wasn't even on the agenda. so what's next is that the city will hold public outreach, two meetings in august, and they hope to pick a permanent site or not a permanent site but finalize the site in september. in fremont, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> all right, thanks so much for the latest, kris. >> it's 6:06. a man accused of killing two men in san mateo county is expected in court for a motion hearing today. malik dasuki pleaded not guilty. he is asking to represent himself in trial. prosecutors say he killed a taxi driver and a towing company employee, both on skyline boulevard. this happened last month. dasuki allegedly killed the taxi driver after a ride to skyline boulevard. the next day he called a specialty towing for help and then stabbed that employee, say police. >> 6:06. the oakland city council passes a ban on facial
6:07 am
recognition within city limits. the council president says multiple studies show the technology is flawed and biased. a few months ago supervisors banned the use of that technology by all city agencies. critics say the ban makes it harder for police to track down criminals. new this morning, san francisco will help more students go to college for free. the board of supervisors voted to add $15 million to the free city college fund. the funding is expected to last ten years. mayor london breed introduced the resolution working to save that pilot program. it was set to expire this month. >> it's hard to believe, back-to-school season is right around the corner. one marin county school district is at odds on when students should show up for class. according to "the marin independent journal" the tamalpias union high school approved sending a letter to the state opposing a state proposal mandating later school start times. the district says the decision should be made locally.
6:08 am
if approved high schools would start no earlier than 8:30 in the morning, middle schools no earlier than 8:00 a.m. we're getting to the bottom of a mystery floating in monterey bay. >> it's a submarine, getting a lot of attention. many people perplexed as to what it was, how it got there, who it belonged to. the owner traded in home improvement for water safety. terrance smith plays tim the toolman taylor's youngest son in the '90s comedy "home improvement." he works with a berkeley based company to help teach people how to pilot the submarine. he promises that's all the submarine is there for. >> you want to help people experience what the true beauty and wonder that is under the ocean at all times. no, we're not smuggling drugs. we're not attacking the u.s. we're all just californians here having a good time. >> probably wouldn't hurt to fly an american flag in the back there. the company says before you become a certified sub pilot and go on dives, you have to take a
6:09 am
shore-based class that costs about $200. >> i'm not normally claustrophobic but that might make me feel a little. >> i'd love to see the fish in monterey bay. i might have to get over that a little while to see the fish. >> i need a bigger sub. >> right out the door this morning, and as we start out in pleasant hill, nice cool stemp tours as y temperatures to the b.a.r.t. station. low 60s through 8:00 and then warming up. it will be another hot day. already by 1:00 we're at 85 degrees. if you're headed out to the park today on the peninsula, maybe around san mateo, it will start out mostly cloudy, a cool morning and at noon it's becoming sunny, 69 degrees and a comfortable afternoon headed our way. so as we check out all of our high temperatures for this afternoon, up to 92 in antioch today, 91 in ukiah. those are our hottest spots. we keep it in the low 60s in
6:10 am

6:11 am
bridge as well as the bay bridge. back to you. >> thank you, mike. next and new, a serious data breach for people who use a major wireless carrier. the information the company says might be exposed. plus -- >> it is a beautiful alligator. >> it's beautiful, from a distance. this little gator taken to chicago and the internet by storm. next and new this hour, reaction from the rap superstar who happens to be the animal's namesake. you're watching "today in the bay."

6:18 am
also very nice sunrise this morning to get you started. if you're headed out to the fruitvale b.a.r.t. station expect low 60s. still a jacket needed but later on today comfortable. oakland's high temperatures reaching into the low to mid-70s. let's go hour by hour for all of our microclimates. here we are at 10:00, starting to see a few low 70s in the east bay, even in santa rosa, we'll be at 71 degrees at 10:00 this morning and then going in to noon, if you want to take lunch outside, it is going to be really nice, starting to warm up though in concord. wr we're at 81, one of the warmer spots for the early afternoon and then going into this evening and maybe headed out for your commute headed home from,in the low 90s in antioch but mid 80s for the tri-valley and at 8:00 as the sun sets we're in the 60s and 70s. so our weather set up very typical, really no changes from the past few days and even the weekend. we've seen some cool coastal
6:19 am
temperatures and warm valley temperature this is wes this we. it will be hot but a slight onshore wind flow. next week there could be some relief as we see the storm system approaching the pacific northwest that could bring us cooler temperatures. as we look at the seven-day forecast our numbers don't change too much. our little bit of a break where we come down another three to four degrees tomorrow as well as friday but back up a couple more degrees for the weekend in the valleys in san francisco, keeping those 60s throughout the next several days with breezy winds and fog at times. mike, do we have a crash investigation going on now? >> we do. it's continuing, kari, over in richmond on the itch are mond si richmond side of the richmond-san rafael bridge. we show the is ensource around the bay right now, mostly just fine. look at the green sensors. that's great, light easy drive. there's recovery through concord from the earlier crash south 242 recovers, so does westbound
6:20 am
highway 4 out of bay point. this will continue to be a problem for the time being and the build continues to grow eastbound 580 as you approach cutting boulevard. a chopper is en route. we probably don't have a good shot but if we have any shot whatsoever, we'll show it as we travel toward that scene. we'll show what you we can. there's been a deadly crash involving a pedestrian so we may not be able to show you much picture there. we want to of course also mind the traffic flow though and that is moving smoothly for your commute direction. westbound bay bridge earlier crash at harrison, which was a distraction. there was some slowing out of lanes. the slowing eased up and so has the build toward the toll plaza. we have the metering lights on and the left approach easing up at the bay bridge toll plaza itself. back to you. >> mike, thanks. 6:20 on your wednesday morning. here is a question, as you eat breakfast, how late is too late for tacos? the petition against a food truck here in the bay area.

6:30 am
mike inouye has breaking news. >> richmond we continue to follow the investigation that's going on. we have this video from our chopper which was just over the scene for a couple of minutes. the fog made them leave the area for safety sake but enough to show you the area with the activity right here. you see the traffic flowing here on eastbound 580 getting off the san rafael to richmond bridge, forced off at harbor as this is a tough video to see. let's get out to the maps. chopper had to leave the area because of low clouds for their visibility, that was a safety factor. for you, you have to get forced off of the freeway so expect the slowing as you approach richmond from san rafael. this deadly crash involved a pedestrian, either on the freeway or trying to run across the off-ramp at cutting boulevard. so we'll follow that investigation. meanwhile, the traffic impact means you're off of the freeway at harbor. you'll probably have to jump on somewhere around marina parkway. watch for the surface streets just in that immediate vicinity. meanwhile your commute direction is westbound, that slows toward
6:31 am
that richmond bridge toll plaza, but nothing major and nothing unexpected. same thing for the approach toward the bay bridge and the bay bridge toll plaza, and the rest of the bay shows a smooth flow of traffic as well. we have a new crash reported 101 near san mateo and third. looks like it's southbound side from the pattern but everything shows a smoother, lighter drive around the bay, kari. that's good news for the start of your day. >> we have a nice clear sunrise, as we take a live look outside in walnut creek. we are going to start out with temperatures in the low 60s, and then reach into the mid 80s. it is going to be another hot day, as we see the high temperatures in parts of the east bay reaching the low 90s. we'll still keep the low 60s for the coast. we'll talk about the weekend forecast, that's coming up in about six minutes. we have brand new news just in. the aclu asking a federal judge to block president trump's new asylum rule. that request was filed this morning in court. the aclu is seeking a hearing on the issue tomorrow in san francisco.
6:32 am
the new rules went into effect yesterday and prevent most migrants from seeking protection as refugees if they passed through another country first. we are continuing to monitor aftershocks and anticipating maybe another earthquake after a magnitude 4.3 quake shook parts of contra costa county yesterday. >> here is a map that shows where it was felt, widespread in the bay area, all the way to the north. some people as far south as san jose felt it. "today in the bay's" t"''s"''s'n is live in blackhawk. >> reporter: the last time this fault line had a sizeable earthquake was back in 1980, that was a 5.8 magnitude. this was centered about six miles east of where we are in blackhawk right now. it's on the greenville fault line, which stretches from livermore to the diablo range, about 44 miles in total.
6:33 am
three smaller aftershocks followed that main quake. despite all the seismic activity, though, usgs geophysicist tells "today in the bay" this is all normal scientifically speaking, but it does come after that 7.1 earthquake in ridgecrest in kearn county and the other sequence of quakes there. some people are concerned enough that they're preparing just in case there's a larger event. >> we had one in the south and one coming up. probably not worried but curious if we get a bigger one. >> we're headed to costco to get a bunch of water. >> reporter: the usgs recorded six quakes across the state yesterday of 3.5 of greater and more than 500 aftershocks following the ridgecrest event over the july 4th holiday. this morning a group of west coast u.s. senators is fighting
6:34 am
to maintain the nation's high speed earthquake alert system due to what seems like constant seismic activity recently here in california, and in washington state. in fact, 20 senators in total have now signed on this morning to that letter to the fcc, urging the fcc to make sure that they maintain what has become a pretty quick alert system as the fcc moves forward with plans to upgrade the country's cell tower networks. we're live in blackhawk, thom jensen, "today in the bay." >> thanks for the latest. >> good reminder for all of us to be ready. thank you, thom. another grass fire also in contra costa county, this fire breaking out yesterday at the intersection of highway 4 and 680 in pacheco. the flames spread to a storage facility. 20 units destroyed or damaged. nobody hurt and no word on the cause. >> 6:34. new information from california's auditor. according to a new report, some
6:35 am
personal information collected by the state may not be protected. the auditor found certain departments have weakens in their data security and lack external oversight, among other issues. the report is not saying exactly which departments are vulnerable. it did say those in the judicial branch of government and executive offices as well. the u.s. census bureau is sending out nearly a quarter million questionnaires to households across the u.s. that does include a question about citizenship. you'll remember the supreme court ruled earlier this month it cannot be included in 2020. this test was designed and printed before the decision, and while it's not clear if or how the government will use the data, it is not the official census. another quarter million households will receive surveys that don't include the question to see what impact the question might have on response rates. later this morning in contra costa county, a commemoration will take place to remember the lives lost in a deadly explosion
6:36 am
75 years ago and the mutiny trial that followed it. >> it was big bay area history. pete suratos has this report from concord. >> reporter: good morning to you, guys. today marks the 75th anniversary of the port chicago disaster that took place in concord, and the majority of those who died in this disaster were young black sailors. as far as what took place, the explosion took place on july 17th, 1944, killing 320 people. 202 of whom were young black sailors. they were ordered to load and unload explosives onto ships with no training and also had inadequate equipment. a week after the explosion, surviving sailors were ordered to report to nearby mayor island in vallejo to resume the dangerous work, loading the explosives. when 50 sailors, all african-american refused to do the work because of concerns they were convicted and sent to prison on mutiny charges. they led to the desegregation of the u.s. armed forces and early step for thurgood marshall, who was then chief counsel for the naacp. toward becoming a supreme court
6:37 am
justice. nbc bay area did speak with william ross, who was among the black navy sailors stationed at the base when the port chicago disaster took place. >> it was a terrible thing. i mean, you wondered, is this it? is this it? is it going to explode? >> reporter: one of the 50 men were pardoned by then president bill clinton, but a campaign is being led to have the remaining 49 pardoned as well. all 50 of the men are deceased. today's commemoration event, that will take place at 10:00 a.m. in concord, pete suratos for "today in the bay." >> thank you, pete. other news a carpool crackdown in contra costa county. 75 drivers were caught breaking the law yesterday, this one probably takes the cake, chp contra costa county tweeting this out, a mannequin riding shotgun so the driver can use the carpool lane. they got caught. chp calling the mannequin angel
6:38 am
based on the sweatshirt. i'm surprised they caught that. that would be tough to catch. >> we do these stories all the time, every once in a while. people still try to get away with it. >> 75, yes, great, we got 75 violations but i see perhaps 75 every week. >> oh, yeah. keep cracking down. keep the carpool. >> keep it safe out there folks as well. cars are supposed to be on the roadway, not pedestrians, but unfortunately sounds like we had a pedestrian in richmond and that's the scene of our traffic alert. we'll show you there's a full closure of eastbound 580 as you exit the area, coming over from san rafael and off of the bridge, headed into richmond. the freeway is closed about harbor way because of someone who was apparently in the fast lane, that means they went all the way across the freeway into the fast lane area when they got hit and killed earlier this morning. the investigation continues. we have some video from our chopper able to stick around for a bit before the clouds became an issue. the flares getting off eastbound
6:39 am
580 on to city streets that will conjest the area as they make their way probably toward marina way, the best way back onto the freeway. keep that in mind coming from the san rafael side it will be anner uo eissue off the bridge. the rest of your commute looks very light around the bay, with just the bay bridge metering lights of course. >> all right, half way through our work week. looking forward to the weekend. mild temperatures? >> nice and mild but it depends on where you are. we're still going to have the wide range so let's start out with some free ice cream at the giants game this friday night. i'll be out there handing out ice cream at left field plaza. come see me, get free ice cream, we'll be in the low 70s and it will be nice and in time for the game, it will be right at about 66 degrees so starting to cool off. as we make saturday plans, we'll still have some 60s along the coast, and mid 80s in the inland valleys and a lot of sunshine to go around and no major changes
6:40 am
