5:04 am
able to determine what caused the pipe to burst or how much sewage has made it into the san francisco bay. they also don't know when the people is going to be repaired. but they are keeping everyone around this area informed by doing automated phone calls. they sent some of those out yesterday and will continue as they get more information on this spill. sydnie. >> thank you, anne makovec in redwood city. it is 5:04. trash day is returning in san mateo county. a two-day garbage strike ended last night. more than 500 allied waste collectors in solidarity with a dozen strikers. they refused to cross the picket line. this is a landfill in half moon bay. the company will be two days behind schedule handling the overflow of trash. fires in san jose putting the spotlight on recent layoffs of 49 firefighters. fires early yesterday morning burned two homes on the city's west side and a construction

[ laughter ] >> reporter: but the city here in redwood shores still working to fix this pipe and clean up the mess. you can see they have been working throughout the night here. but what's more interesting about the scene is the trucks here on my side, there are four tanker trucks another one just pulled up. they are ready for the busy morning period when everyone is showering and using the restroom because all that sewage is going to be taken into the trucks and then driven away to a sewage treatment plant because the pipe is still broken. [ signal breakup ] >> she was going to say the pipe is still busted and from
5:34 am
what i know, they will be doing that hopefully trying to get it repaired later on today. that pipe did spew thousands of gallons of sewage into people's garages throughout the neighborhood and it did -- it is believed to have gone as well into the nearby reservoir there. no word on exactly how much made it into the bay, though. we'll try to reestablish contact with anne and get you updated on that. trash day, it returns to san mateo county today. a two-day garbage strike ended last night. more than 500 allied waste collectors had refused to cross the picket line in solidarity with a dozen or so fellow workers. those fellow workers were striking at a landfill in half moon bay. the company says the pickups will be running two days behind schedule as it handles the overflow of trash. oakland schools are trying to find money to keep seven daycare centers open after today.
5:35 am
the childhood development centers were originally set to close at the beginning of august. but the district found $400,000 to keep the seven centers open through today. those centers serve about 500 preschool and elementary age kids. the "chronicle" is reporting state funding cuts have forced oakland schools to cut nearly three-quarters of their funding for early childhood education. 5:35. three people have been found shot to death in a west hollywood apartment. people nearby called police about 9:30 last night saying they heard gunshots. sheriff's deputies still on the scene. they aren't saying much at this time. there is no word on a motive or any suspects. they survived a hard landing and the emergency chute but now some jetblue passengers want their luggage back. this is home video of what happened at the sacramento airport yesterday. 15 people were injured including five who had to be taken to the hospital. most of the injuries came from sliding down the emergency chute. as the airbus landed, the tires
5:36 am
under the right wing caught fire due to a brake problem. jetblue says the crew decided to evacuate as a precaution. >> about 50 feet the plane just abruptly stopped. and then the announcement came on again, you need to evacuate. but it didn't sound like anything serious, just flat tire. >> i was a little frightened. i thought the plane was going to blow up. i didn't know what was going on on. >> the luggage won't be available for 24 hours. it's 5:36. no progress record after a meeting involving the main players in the california state budget talks. governor schwarzenegger held his first meeting with legislative leaders in nearly two months yesterday. they talked for less than an hour. democratic senate president pro tem darrell steinberg said it
5:37 am
was a positive conversation. senate minority leader dennis hollingsworth say republicans support the governor's plans for deep cuts but against democrats' calls for tax increases. the race for lieutenant governor is heating up in the state with the release of a youtube video from the campaign of abel maldonado, the republican incumbent. it features clips of his democratic challenger san francisco mayor gavin newsom. >> it's gonna happen, whether you like it or not! whether you like it or not! whether you like it or not! >> what does the lieutenant governor do? for the life of me i don't know! >> newsom calls the 8-minute ad a personal attack. not only on him but also on san francisco. >> i think anyone could splice, pick and choose, particularly someone up front on issues that doesn't sit back again and play in the caboose so to speak in terms of public policy. >> i think what's important here is for the people of
5:38 am
california to know what his governing style is. and his governing style is, "whether you like it or not." governor schwarzenegger appointed abel maldonado as lieutenant governor and he was confirmed a few months ago. polls show newson with a narrow lead in the race. new video of the 33 miners trapped a half mile below earth's surface in chile. randall pinkston reports some of the miners finally spoke to their families. >> reporter: 2300 feet underground the 33 trapped might beers are doing everything they can to keep their -- 33 trapped miners are doing everything they can to keep their spirits up. "i'd like to say hello to my grandchildren and my family." these new images offer the best look yet at the conditions for 22 days. the footage was shot with a camera that rescue crews sent down through a borehole used for communications. the miners appear to be perspiring but overall they seem to be holding up.
5:39 am
yesterday, they learned they will likely stay trapped until christmas. still, they are encouraged by the round-the-clock rescue effort. it takes courage to not leave us abandoned, says this miner. we know everything you have been doing outside. chile's government is even seeking help from nasa. officials have asked for survival tips in extreme confined conditions and they are even thinking about sending down food rations to the miners similar to the ones astronauts use. >> it's very alienating. you're isolated. there is a sense of not belonging to the earth anymore. >> reporter: on the surface, crews are using a small hole to lower food, water and medicine. but keeping the miners healthy is only part of the challenge. along with advising them to lose weight so they can fit through a rescue tunnel, officials have encouraged the men to keep each other entertained to pass the time. at one point, in the newly released footage, the miners can be seen singing chile as
5:40 am
national anthem. [ singing ] >> reporter: morale they will need to keep up in order to get out. in washington, randall pinkston, cbs 5. and now we learned there is a chance that those miners will not be paid after they get rescued because their company is in danger of going bankrupt. that company not involved at all in this rescue operation. that's being handled by a state- owned mining company. hurricane danielle is a category 4 in the atlantic. the storm's maximum sustained winds near 135 miles an hour. it may get stronger. forecasters say swells from the storm could reach the u.s. coast, the east coast, by the weekend. right now, danielle's eye about 500 miles southeast of bermuda. this weekend marks the five- year anniversary of hurricane katrina and many people are focused on the recovery efforts in new orleans. but nearby mississippi residents have also faced a
5:41 am
tough recovery. about 94,000 homes were destroyed on the mississippi coast. more than 5,000 hurricane victims remain homeless as of today. only one in eight homes in the area has been rebuilt. many people won't ever call the mississippi coast home again. high insurance costs, stricter building codes and a slow economy are forcing them to permanently leave the area. 52% of americans say they do not think new orleans has recovered yet from katrina's devastation. a cbs news poll also found 63% think the federal government could have done more to help in the wake of the hurricane. and 72% of americans now have a good image of new orleans. that's up from 49% four years ago. it is 5:41. we found two things in your refrigerator that can make you sick. fruit pops and cheese. >> and a northern california fourth grader in trouble for sniffing hand sanitizer.
