7:01 am
how you're looking throughout the entire bay area. pacifica along the coastline expect to keep the cloud cover all day long. it will linger, it might be too cold for the coastline this afternoon, and if you're looking for maybe just a little bit of a warmer spot, go check out the south bay, because in san jose, temperatures will top out comfortably in the upper 70s, low 80s. san jose expected to get a bit of a breeze but notice in the icons a lot less cloud cover by the afternoon, talking clearing skies and typically one of our hottest spots, which is into the tri-valley is expected to also remain in the upper 70s, low to mid 80s in through the afternoon as well, but enjoy today, our coolest day of the weekend so far. even though we're cling off today and tomorrow, we have high pressure rebuilding and that means another warmup. i'm going to break that down for you coming up in 15 minutes. >> a little more comfortable than last week but more heat is coming. >> absolutely. >> thank you very much, vianey. a second water main break in vallejo has been repaired. this happened around 6:30 yesterday evening on fresno street, between tennessee and
7:02 am
nebraska street. city water officials say about 40 customers were affected, and also in vallejo a neighborhood was without water for most of the day after a larger water main break early saturday morning. "today in the bay" sergio quintana has the messy details. >> reporter: this is the massive pipe that sprung a leak. crews worked into the night to fix it. through most of the day, a pump flushed out water from the massive hole public works crews worked in. the water line broke early saturday morning. >> my wife woke me up around 3:30 in the morning. she said you're probably not going to have to go to work. the whole street's flooded. >> reporter: eric burton took several pictures of the flooding. the water swamped several cars including his but his neighbor's car got the worst taj. >> their new acura the sink hole opened up underneath them and tilted it in. >> the more i kept coming out the car sinking and finally the car was all the way in there. >> reporter: antwan and his son
7:03 am
watched the water sink hole get bigger. city workers trucked in water bottles for residents to drink and a couple of port-a-potties. a 14 inch water main broke. fixing it involved bringing in massive metal frames in replacing the pipe. >> it's better than what i expected. i don't know what i expected but they're doing pretty good, i guess. >> reporter: sergio quintana, "nbc bay area news." there were some tense moments for a san jose neighborhood after a man barricaded himself inside a home for nearly five hours. several police officers responded to the home on kipling court yesterday afternoon. just after 10:00 last night the man surrendered and was neighbors say it was the suspect's mother's house and he had recently been evicted. a former roommate says ferz had to help the mother escape out a window. nobody was hurt. a big delay for drivers and
7:04 am
b.a.r.t. riders in the east bay. some lanes on highway 24 near the lafayette b.a.r.t. station are closed, and there is no b.a.r.t. service between the orinda and walnut creek stations. it's all because of b.a.r.t. track replacement work that many drivers were caught in a backup going past the area. b.a.r.t. riders had to use a bus bridge to get to their destinations. >> because i had my trip all planned to the minute because i'm meeting somebody and now i don't know what it's going to be, but it's all right. >> the project will allow b.a.r.t. to replace insulators, cables and worn tires. that work continues today. clashes in the streets of portland as violence flaired up in confrontations between right and left wing groups. "today in the bay's" marianne favro looks at the protests that now have president trump weighing in. >> reporter: protests erupt in portland, clashes between right wing protesters and left wing anti-fascists spilled out onto the streets. the conflict started after the right wing group the proud boys organized a nonpermitted rally
7:05 am
on the city's waterfront. fearing violence, some businesses closed up and more than a thousand portland police officers activated. >> they're targeting us because it's a liberal city with progressive values and they know they'll get a rise out of us andvillify us on the internet and make us look like we're the terrorists. >> you look at it. we came in, did a plammarch pea fli, they're chasing us. it shows you who is the thug and who isn't. >> reporter: skirmishes broke out when left wing antifa groups responded and some suffered injuries during several flare-ups between groups. the president chimed in on twitter saying he's considering naming antifa an organization of terror and watching portland closely. portland's mayor talked about the impact the protest had on the community. >> these types of demonstrations and the kind of response that we
7:06 am
had to put in place today cost millions of dollars, and if we're spending money here today doing this, those are resources that could go to other top priorities in this community, so they're number one, misusing blicaxpayer resources. >> reporter: marianne favro, "nbc bay area news." >> the portland police chief says officers on monitored hot spots. the proud boys released a statement saying they will return to portland every month until the mayor removes "violent domestic terrorists from the city." hundreds of people in san francisco joined thousands more across the country to demand stricter gun laws. the organization moms demand action held a rally yesterday morning in front of city hall in the wake of mass shootings, including the one in gilroy, the organization says it wants congress to act and protect americans from gun violence. mayor london breed showed her support and spoke about her experience with gun violence, including witnessing a fatal
7:07 am
shooting as a 12-year-old girl. organizers say the senate needs to come back from their recess and vote on a background check bill. >> we're worried now about going to festivals and events in public. i mean that's no way to live. >> the bill passed by the house would require background checks on all gun purchases, including those made at gun shows. police in san bruno arrested a san francisco man they say robbed a store employee at the tanforan mall just after 11:00 yesterday morning. police tweeted out this picture of the car the suspect was in, when he was taken into custody. investigators say the man stole personal items and merchandise. last month, there was a shooting inside that mall. good news for people in mendocino county. cal fire tweeted the moose fire is now 100% contained. the brush fire started five days ago on moose road near hopland. firefighters say people in the area were immediately evacuated while they tried to get the fire under control. the fire was burning in brush
7:08 am
and grass on a woodland area on steep terrain. cal fire says the fire burned more than 200 acres. in san francisco, more than 2,000 backpacks were given away to disadvantaged kids, this was part of the magic giveaway in the bay view hunter's point neighborhood. the city's late public defender jeff adachi started the program back in 2004. there were backpacks for all ages filled with supplies to make that first day of school a success. >> we have a set of elementary school backpacks that have school supplies, crayons, scissors, glue, notebooks, as well as middle school and high school backpacks that have more notebooks and highlighters and those type of things for the older kids. >> in addition to the backpack giveaway there was a resource fair for families a long with activities and community oriented organizations. berkeley's big people sculptures will soon be coming down. the two bronze works of art are located on the i-08 bike bridge near the waterfront. you probably passed it while
7:09 am
driving. the arts commission says getting rid of the sculptures was cheaper than maintaining them. they could be removed as early as this november. the art was installed back in 2008. we have more ahead on "today in the bay." coming up, we're live in washington to talk politics with chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press." plus we ask you to help clear the shelters, and you responded. we'll take you behind the scenes of a heartwarming day around the bay area.
7:10 am
7:11 am
welcome back and welcome back larry gerston. time for our weekly chat with chuck todd the political director of nbc news and moderator of "meet the press" and our political analyst larry gerston joins me. chuck, thank you for joining me this morning. >> of course. >> i want to get to the 2020 democratic primary. a poll shows elizabeth warren rising into second place. what does that mean for biden,
7:12 am
sanders, and kamala harris? >> we know elizabeth warren has won the summer. you look at where the campaign was before the debates began and where we are now, biden and sanders were always one, two. it's warren that is basically interrupted that one, two punch and positioned in second place just about polling everywhere nationally and in the early states. look, i think what it means though is that we're going to have a new phase of this campaign at some point. can she consolidate the progressive vote and is that where she goes next or does she make the case on electability to peel off some of the pragmatists sitting in the biden column, perhaps sitting there because they think he can win and maybe they like warren but they don't know if she can win. so i think that's the next phase for her. what will be interesting to see, though, is do her fellow primary opponents come after her and i they do, how do they do it? it's a risky strategy this early but she is getting so much traction that you wonder if some candidates feel desperate enough
7:13 am
they feel they may have to go after her. >> chuck, we know that americans traditionally pay little attention to trade issues about you now president trump using tariffs as leverage in china and elsewhere, how likely is it the rising cost of imported goods will become a 2020 campaign issue? >> well, i could tell you this, larry, the public is certainly getting educated or i guess getting an education on what these trade wars and tariff wars mean, and here is how they're processing it. suddenly, before donald trump took office, there was only sort of a modest majority in favor of free trade in this country, sort of unabashed free trade. now, after two years of watching these trade war with china, 64% of the country is in favor of free trade. it's not just democrats that have moved reflectively against the president but you see it amongst independents and some republicans. . say big yellow flag for the president. this is the public questioning his competency of managing the
7:14 am
economy. it's not i don't think the specifics on tariffs and china. i think this is about concern of the overall sort of instability that they're watching in the stock market all the time. >> so in that same vain, some observers attribute last week's volatile stock market as a precursor to recession. so given that the president does his best in the polls when it comes to managing the economy, how problematic might this become for president trump between now and 2020? >> well there's a theory, larry, his mid-40s job rating, if it wasn't for his sort of personal tweets and flubs, he would be ten points higher in this economy, or if it wasn't for the economy, he'd be ten points lower, given his current way that he sort of manages his rhetoric but look, i do think that the culture war sort of focus that the president has quite a bit probably does limit the amount of damage an economic downturn would do to him.
7:15 am
his base is pretty rock solid with him, but it's very narrow. a bad economy means instead of maybe a three in ten chance of putting together that majority he needs or plurality that he needs, it suddenly goes down to a two in ten or one in ten chance. he narrows his ability to garner extra votes if this economy turns south. >> all right, thank you very much, chuck, for joining us. you can join chuck for this morning's "meet the press," he'll have interviews with national economic director larry kudlow, democratic presidential candidate beto o'rourke and potential republican presidential candidate and former congressman mark sanford, that is "meet the press" at 8:00 a.m., right after this newscast. larry, we'll see you back here in about 40 minutes on the newscast for our weekly political segment. we'll look into california's relationship with president trump, a rocky relationship at best. >> yes. >> and we will see you soon for that. thank you so much, larry. this meanwhile is one of our favorite days here at nbc bay area, we teamed up with telemundo 48 to help clear the
7:16 am
shelters. it's also one of the most adorable things we do. re looking at familiar faces who helped find new homes for dogs and cats. in the bay area, there were more than 900 adoptions yesterday alone. "today in the bay's" ian cull has more. >> reporter: at every shelter behind every face, there's a story. this chapter was how they were rescued. the galveja boys were looking for a kitten. >> we saw they were free and we were going to pick one up. >> so cute, too. >> reporter: mom obliged. the boys eventually picking out one. >> the one we have right now, he's not an inside cat so the one that we got is an inside cat so we can cuddle with it. >> congratulations marcia has been adopted, the kitten. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: success stories of these animals in need of love, finding it on this clear the shelters day from san jose to fremont. nbc bay area and telemundo 48 were there to help.
7:17 am
>> to come out and enjoy. >> and it's hard not to fall in love. >> i know. >> reporter: up in berkeley, hundreds came out looking for a pet. >> and i saw him on instagram, and i saw these eyes and knew i had to get him. >> reporter: back in san jose, this couple was looking for a chihuahua, but are leaving with a pit bull. >> we were just like all right, cool, and i saw him again and i was like yo, i want him. that's how that went. >> reporter: taking on more responsibility to give these animals love and a forever home. >> he is lots of fun. want to say bye? >> okay, bye. you're going to go to your new home. >> we're out of here. this way. no. he's like, squirrel? >> reporter: ian cull, "nbc bay area news." >> if you missed clear the shelters yesterday, some shelters are offering waived or reduced adoption fees today. get more information on our website nbcbayarea.com. i can tell you, among those who worked very,ery hd to get animals adopted all week long
7:18 am
our own vianey arana. you did so many live shots with dogs and cats and it was the most adorable thing. i imagine people would say hey, i saw their eyes. >> two of the dogs i featured on instagram got adopted right away. i was happy about that and a tip to all of the new rescue parents, rescue mom to new rescue parents, please be patient. take your time. these animals have their own personalities, so they might have these little quirks and kinks that you got to work out to help them kind of get adapted to their new home but be patient, okay? just give them lots of love and i promise you, they will also adapt to your personality and then you guy also have an unbreakable bond. let me tell you, dogs don't judge you. well sometimes they do talk back but they don't judge you. when you walk through the door, they're always there to greet you, same with kitties. all the good stuff so again patience is key when it comes to a new adopted rescue. all right, so take the time to get to know your new pup or kitty today or whatever animal you decide to get. i had a chicken named after me. i got check on my girl and see
7:19 am
if she got adopted. you heard that right, a chicken. the peninsula 55 degrees. it's partly cloudy, 56 in the tri-valley. the south bay 61, and right now in san francisco, we've got a mix of sun and clouds. 58 degrees. north bay 58. 64 in through the east bay. your microclimate highs today will certainly be cool once again. you're going to get a nice break again from the triple digit heat. if you enjoyed yesterday you're going to like today as well. a little bit of fog but not too much. some areas can expect to see fog lingering. overall napa 76, oakland 73, down through the south bay, low to mid 80s. in through antioch 83, and san francisco 66. now because of this onshore breeze, we're certainly going to see the winds as well kicking up, even a little bit further inland in through this evening, so keep that in mind, anywhere along the coastline we'll keep the clouds hanging out really all day long. so it will be a little bit chillier. if you're visiting from out of town, when you go to san francisco or anywhere around the coast, take a sweater. all right, as far as your air
7:20 am
quality goes, thanks to the sea breeze we are good to go. our air quality got so much better compared to all of those spare the air alerts that we saw in through the early week, because of those triple digit temperatures, and hey, maybe you're getting away and headed to lake tahoe. look at how beautiful that shot is. this is our weather underground camera and this is a quick check of what you can expect. overall today and tomorrow temperatures will be in the upper 70s, low 80s. clear conditions overall, and enjoy the cooler temperatures, because we do have a ridge of high pressure that's building over the southern plains. that's going to move on westward and it's going to start warming us up, so we're remaining cool through today, tomorrow and into monday and tuesday, in through the 70s and 80s, but in through wednesday and thursday as that high pressure begins to build in from the west, our temperatures are expected to start climbing right back up into the 90s for the valleys. we're talking 92, possibly even 98 degrees. now we're not going to be as hot as the daily new record set
7:21 am
highs that we hit in terms of triple digits. that's thanks to a nearby trough as well building in from the west. it will help keep our temperatures in the 90s range but below the triple digits. over the next seven days your warmest day for san francisco will be wednesday and thursday. 75, 76 for the city, and inland areas can expect to see 80s today, a little breezy, remember that through the afternoon. by tomorrow 85, and then that warming really begins to build by tuesday, wednesday, and temperatures are expected to peak on thursday with a little bit of a breezy change into friday and saturday, but hey, that's why i said enjoy the 80s because the 90s are going to be making a comeback. scott? >> thanks very much, vianey. stay with us on "today in the bay." coming up, it was supposed to be a simple fishing trip. how one man says his dog ended up saving him. it's the latest imstallment of "bay area proud."
7:22 am
7:23 am
welcome back. it is 7:23. as we mentioned, this weekend
7:24 am
was our fifth annual clear the shelter event, and thanks to you, hundreds of pets have found new homes. there are many reasons why it might be great to have a dog around but as one north bay man recently learned, there are some you could never imagine. "today in the bay's" garvin tom as has this morning's "bay area proud." >> reporter: on a beautiful summer day, there are many ways to enjoy time in bodega bay. for james white, one sunday in july, it was a little bit of fishing that brought him from his home in rohnert park, but what happened next? well -- >> the first time i told somebody like this, you're out of your mind, there's no way that happened. i show them the pictures, no, it absolutely happened. >> reporter: it started with a tug on james' line. one much stronger than he was expecting. james had a heck of a time reeling in whatever it was. >> it was about ten minutes, and it was the first five minutes i wasn't able to get anything.
7:25 am
it just kept taking the line. i thought i was going to lose all my line. >> reporter: once he got it into shallow water, james saw why. it was a seven-gill shark like this one, a good six feet long, says james. >> and i'm trying to get a hold of it to take the hook out, and as i'm trying to get the hook out, it turns t pivots, and grabs onto the inside of my left ankle. >> reporter: thin that moment james went from the one doing the catching to being caught. the shark latched onto his ankle and would not let go. >> there was blood everywhere. the first bite punctured the artery, so that's when i knew this isn't just going to be a couple scratches. this is pretty bad. >> reporter: james yelled at some nearby fishermen for help but before they could make it to him, someone else did. >> darby, come here. >> reporter: darby, his 1-year-old pit bull. >> if it wasn't for him, it could have gone a lot worse. >> reporter: james had left darby in the car while he fished
7:26 am
but hearing james yell, darby somehow managed to get the door open and race to him. >> ran down the embankment, grabbed hold of the shark behind the gills and started thrashing his head which made the shark bite harder. i told him to back off, no, no, no, so i kept trying to get it off. he grabbed it by the tail and rand up that way with it and pulled it off my leg. you can see little spots here where the teeth were. >> reporter: james believe's darby's quick instinctual intervention saved his leg from even more damage, may have even saved his foot, and this dog who james had affectionately named the house hippo has probably earned a new nickname and definitely earned a whole lot of love. >> he's been a part of the family since day one but now he's just a little bit more. >> reporter: garvin thomas, "nbc bay area news." >> thank you, garvin. i don't know what's more amazing, that he saved him from the shark or got the door open in the car. anyway, there's more ahead on "today in the bay." just ahead, a man out for a walk

welcome back. 7:46. you often hear how the trump administration bowls over opponents with its approach to undoing regulations put into place by president obama and his team. in other instances the investigate glators prevented states from carrying out their own approach to various issues because of differences in political values. but despite this, california has proven to be an exception to the president's rewriting of the country's political agenda. nbc bay area's political analyst
7:47 am
larry gerston joins us, so is california holding its own against the president? >> you know what? california is holding its own against the president, and then some, as a matter of fact. look, whereas some states have given in to trump administration changes, you mentioned, california has acted with surgical precision through the very courts that the administration is trying to change. the state's rejection to trump policies have been massive. consider this -- whereas texas sued the obama administration 48 times during the eight years of his presidency, california has already sued trump 50 times during the first two and a half years of his term. that's a lot. >> interesting, between texas and california. what kinds of policy areas are we talking about here? >> the skorks the manscott the e environment, water and of course immigration, and although many cases are still going through the judicial system, the state has won almost all of the time in those instances with final
7:48 am
decisions. >> and what are some examples of that? >> good ones here. about half the cases have centered on various elements of climate change related to regulations put forward by the environmental protection agency, the interior department and other federal jurisdictions. the most recent has to do with automobile fuel emissions standards. whereas the trump administration wanted to roll back new targets, california and 12 other states resisted, given the possibility that the automobile companies would have to develop two different types of engines for two different types of emissions requirements, they joined with california to oppose the new trump standards. california won. a second example centers on water policy. trump administrators and the department of agriculture and interior attempted to ease rules on water quality and shift more water to farmers from urban areas. to keep the feds from succeeding, california's drawn up strict regulations for management of the delta, which may well thwart the trump
7:49 am
administration from having its way distributing water from federally managed sources and then there's the question of sanctuary status for undocumented immigrants. california was an early state to limit cooperation with federal government authorities except in the cases of course where immigrants have committed serious crimes. but the trump administration sued. they sued california to prevent this accommodation, and the courts have upheld california sanctuary law as they have so many other times in immigration issues. >> so larry, knowing now that california has had success stories, does that mean the trump administration's reach and power is perhaps not as strong as we thought? >> well, not in every case. a lot, but not in every case. to begin with, there are some governments in politically conservative states that are quite comfortable with the trump approach. in other cases, states that oppose the trump administration just haven't had the resources to move forward. but in the case of california, the state's political culture and attorney general becerra
7:50 am
proved to be formidable opposition for the trump administration, a real thorn. still, there have been some areas of federal success such as the trump administration's decision to withhold federal funds from the state's high speed rail system because the newsom administration moved to change plans of operation. nevertheless, the state's vigilance continues. just last friday, attorney general becerra sued the trump administration to stop implementation of a new rule that would make it harder for illegal immigrants to obtain green card status, mostly california. >> campaign time, california will be in the spotlight more than usual. what can we expect looking ahead on this front? >> how true. as long as the trump administration and california's elected officials are at opposite ends, if you will, of the political spectrum, scott, we could expect further fireworks on a wide array of policy areas, but if nothing else, california has established itself as headquarters of the loyal opposition to president
7:51 am
trump, and his policy intentions. the californians will not take him without a fight. >> there will be a fight and many fights i think. dr. gerston, thank you so much, as always. still ahead on "today in the bay," eating green is good for you, but not these greens. some salad mix became a salad mixup. we'll tell you about the animal found inside. >> froggy situation going on in that salad. castro sf, clear skies above but the marine layer down below. yes, we have the sea breeze and it's cool now but we've got another warmup on the way. i'll tell you about your daytime highs and what you can expect this work week coming up.
