we are just hours away from the giants big victory parade and all over the bay area, people are getting ready to celebrate with the world series champions. good morning, everyone. i'm michelle griego. >> hi, everyone. i'm frank mallicoat. weather and traffic will play a big part in this. but right now kpix 5 reporters are checking all the angles. kiet do has transit information from san jose. roberta gonzales is in san francisco at the start of the parade route. but first, anne makovec is at civic center plaza where they are doing some last-minute work to prepare. anne? >> reporter: i'm here at market and 5th and city crews have already started putting up the barriers.
they have been out all night and the crowd is already here. the parade starts in 6 hours. these people are camping out and ready to wait for the long haul. that's how badly they wanted the front row seat. the city is expecting a million people for the parade even though it is expected to be raining. we'll hear more about that coming up in a few minutes. people have been working on the floats for a long time actually since the giants won that game in st. louis. this is the parade company called the parade guys. they have been working feverishly to make sure this one compares to the last couple parades we have had here in the city. [ screaming ] >> 2010, 2012, i had to work until 7 a.m. came here at like 8:00 and i was too late. this time early bird gets the worm. we're here way early, whoo! >> we're giants fans and we
really wanted to be here and we're die-hard and we really love the giants. >> reporter: police have been increasing staff and hoping for a peaceful and fun celebration. it is overall going to be a crazy day in the city. it's halloween, of course. and critical mass impedes traffic. so that's going to be interesting. hopefully everyone will stay cool. >> a lot of kids playing hooky today. it's like a holiday in the bay area. i guess teachers and school officials -- >> some superintendents said have your child come to school as normal. a lot of parents obviously ignoring that. but it is money to school districts. in fact, in 2012, san francisco school district lost $160,000 because of kids who didn't come to class that day. if you do come out here, you're going to be dealing with rain. let's check with lawrence karnow right now for some of
the specifics on that. lawrence. >> unfortunately, anne, i think this rain is coming through really the bulk of it right in time for the parade. so if you are going to the parade, just be prepared. it's going to be a great time but that rain will be heavy especially during the time of the parade. right now, we are just seeing some scattered light showers on our kpix 5 hi-def doppler radar. you can just begin to see some moving into the northern sonoma county still the heaviest rainfall to the north of us but the system just putting itself together. so as we head throughout the morning hours, that rain will be picking up in the north bay first. and then sweeping across the rest of our skies. out the door, we have some southerly winds ahead of the cold front so temperatures are very, very mild into the 60s. that rain becoming heavy into the afternoon moving down into parts of the south bay. the santa cruz mountains can see as much as two inches of rain from the storm system. maybe even some thunderstorms. the good news is looks like the bulk of the heavy rainfall will be done before the trick or treaters head out this evening. that's the latest forecast, guys. back to you. >> thank you. players past and present will be on hand for today's big
festivities and going right down market street. >> roberta gonzales joins us live with more on the parade route and, of course, who will be there. roberta? >> reporter: yes. we are here in the streets of san francisco. they are already shutting down the roads just a few cars coming back and forth. they are setting up all the preparations. i am on the parade route. this is so exciting this morning! and check this out. we have jacob. we have billy. jacob is from vallejo. billy is from napa. we have alex, darrell, marcia, michelle. we have amelia and arturo. you guys came from turlock? why did you come from such a far away place this morning? >> i was raised here and i moved to turlock 25 years ago. and we have been -- all my ten children have been born here in san francisco. >> reporter: 10 children. i praise you. 10 children. then you deserve to be here today. >> i deserve to be here. >> reporter: yes, you do. arturo, tell me, who is your favorite player? >> panda!

across the span if you are planning on driving into the city today. i wouldn't recommend it. parking is going to be really tough. there's a couple of other issues out there, as well. in fact, a traffic alert through the santa cruz mountains. there's light drizzle reported and this is a spinout blocking one lane for another half-hour. so chp issued that traffic alert. and big delays still in petaluma. if you can believe it, 21 cars on the shoulder with flat tires. there's a fleet of tow crews out there southbound 101 at petaluma boulevard south. the debris has been cleared and it sounds like all lanes are open. all right. we are talking a lot about mass transit and the expanded service today. kiet do is standing by live at san jose's diridon station. you got any tips for us about how to get in and out of san francisco today? >> reporter: yeah. absolutely. you know, it seems like the public transportation here in the bay area has gone into giants victory mode which means that they are all hands on deck operating at full capacity going with everything that they have. we are going to start with
caltrain this morning. they say that before the parade, they have added 8 trains going northbound into the city. after the parade, they will stack all those trains up and then send them off from san francisco going southbound as soon as they are fully loaded. service from san jose to gilroy will have delays of an hour after the parade. can you guess which day was the busiest day in caltrain history? it was the world series parade back in 2012. well, today the trains carry even more commuters than did back then which means they could shatter the previous one day record. on to bart they say the number one thing you can do today is to buy your roundtrip ticket or load your clipper card ahead of time. also, avoid those peak times of 6 to 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. as for bart they are using every available train. each train going to and from san francisco will be at its maximum length. they will also be running as frequently as they possibly can. bart will operate until 2:00 this morning. back here live at caltrain, they say if you can work from
home today, it's a good idea. live at diridon train station in san jose kiet do, kpix 5. >> if you do you can watch our special live coverage. parade of champions that starts at 11:00 right here on channel 5 and we'll stream it live commercial-free at kpix.com/live. 6:10. bay area police officers are accused of arresting a domestic violence victim instead of the man who allegedly attacked her. why activists say the police department should take the blame. >> and as a nurse in maine battles the government owe her ebola quarantine, a new lawsuit claims a medical supply company is responsible for spreading the virus. coming up. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

hawaii national guard going to protect people from a lava flow. more than 80 will provide security for a small town in the lava's path. it's been oozing since the month of june and is less than a quarter mile away from businesses and home. one hm tells kpix 5's betty yu -- one homeowner tells kpix 5's betty yu the path is tough to predict. >> it's very much a monster something you can't stop. it's going to do whatever it wants to do. >> so far, the lava flow has consumed a shed but not a home. a complaint against the san francisco police department says it failed to provide appear interpreter at the scene of a domestic violence case. members of an immigrant and civil rights group are speaking out on behalf of a woman they say was abused by her ex- partner. the woman speaks limited english. the complaint says she was denied interpretation services and that she was arrested instead of the alleged abuser.
>> we saw the complaint to ask for -- filed the complaint to ask for policy changes, discipline to the officers and other issues. >> leaders of the group say the san francisco police department does have an accident language access policy but they say it isn't always followed. and they want to know why. well, do we know how to celebrate or what here in the bay area? we have giants parade of course today and tonight. we invited you to send in halloween costumes and here's some of the best from the week: and we want to see your halloween cost ures too. just go to kpix dot com sla >> have you carved your pumpkin? >> no, but it's on the table ready to go. >> that child looks like anne

other mass transit also running extra service. golden gate ferries, caltrain and muni, they are also rerouting muni around the parade route. various streets are closed. so use mass transit. here's some folks trying to get into the city. the metering lights are turned on about a half-hour ago clear to the maze. a stall was cleared off treasure island. it's still dry at least across the bridge. golden gate bridge no delays. no delays on the san mateo bridge. dry in the bay area now but that will change. we are seeing heavy rainfall in far northern california. a little closer to home some showers beginning to show up in northern sonoma county and you can see some more off the coastline. this will intensify.
middle of the day very heavy rain and thunderstorms toward the afternoon. after the cold front moves on by, going to see some heavy rain and gusty winds. and then it looks like some cool weather this weekend. some leftover showers on saturday and we'll dry out sunday. it will be a stormy halloween outside. the good news is i think trick or treaters will catch a break. parade-goers may not be so lucky. if you head to the high country today, winter storm warnings going up today, as well. going to see 8 to 14 inches of snow there about 7,000 feet or so. maybe some snow a little lower than that. as the temperatures begin to cool off later on this evening. clouds out there now and then the storm system puts itself together. 12:00, 1:00 some very heavy rainfall moving across san francisco and the parade. sliding to the south into the afternoon. turning more towards scattered showers for the trick or treaters so not a washout for them. and then it looks like more showers into saturday morning, as well. rainfall totals will be impressive and downtown san
francisco maybe over an inch and a quarter of if that happens, of course, very, very messy weather. could see up to 2 inches of rain over the tops of the mountains. temperatures cool in the 60s. sunrise time is at 7:34. sunset 6:12. over the next couple of days, very heavy rainfall showers on saturday. return to dry weather come sunday. hey, good morning, everybody! got your galoshes? got your rain gear? ready to go to this parade? i am! but first, i got the giants leading it off and man a long time coming for one 16-year vet. ,,
little baseball front and center. the giants are the hot topic. let's give you tim hudson the oldest to start a game 7 at age 39. he had the shortest outing since 1960 an inning and a third but he is the world series champion. here's the scene in kansas city. hudson got through the 1st inning but the royals chased him 16 years in the bigs. had not been past the first round of the play-offs and this year he cashed in after signing in the off season. he says he saw something in the makeup of this team. >> i didn't know what the picture -- i never experienced something like this. these are amazing. they are my brothers. i love them to death. full team effort. that he is what he it's all b that's what we have been doing all year. >> tonight you can explain this giants magic we have seen? >> i have seen it from afar. not seen it in this locker room, seeing it for a change. on the ice, sharks on the road a lot. last night minnesota, they blew
a 3-1 lead in the third. here came the wild and kyle just seconds in the game tied it and went to a shootout and then jason delivered. advantage wild. it was up to patrick marleau. denied. and the wild win 4-3 in a shootout. that is sports at this hour. everybody, have a great day and if you are going to the parade, stay dry and have a terrific time. play of the day, how about a little golf? lee westwood par 3, 11th home tournament in malaysia and by golly he tees off and doesn't need a putter because that baby drops right in the couple offul bounce and here it comes. and there it goes! it's a hole in one for lee westwood on halloween, your play of the day. the barriers are up and the

winds and clouds. a lot of 60s out there now. toward the afternoon very well and the cold front into the south bay. you can see heavy rainfall in the santa cruz mountains and up to 2" of rain across some of the mountains. looks like we'll finally begin to dry out a little bit but still some scattered showers for trick or treaters later on this evening. that's a look at the weather. back to you. >> thank you. today's parade will include the team and the giants but some of the former players are going to be there, as well. >> it's cool. roberta gonzales is on the parade route this morning. >> reporter: i have to admit this is my third parade and one thing i have noticed is people are coming out earlier than ever before. we're on market street and we have people out here. people are jumping in. let me see here. we have stephanie and we have

daly city line. daly city in all directions you can see there they are having an equipment problem hopefully this will be resolved soon. there's already been thousands more commuters than usual october friday. and if you are planning on checking out the parade embarcadero, montgomery, powell or civic center, those are your best stops. bart is running these longer trains. they are running rush hour capacity all day long. even into tomorrow. they are running those trains until 2 a.m. caltrain and muni also offering extra service. here's a live look at the roads. some people are heading into san francisco via the bay bridge. but, you know, earlier we had mentioned that it was stacked up through the macarthur maze. it seems like it's eased off a bit. not quite backed up through the maze any longer -- almost. a traffic alert still in effect coming into the santa cruz mountains. a spinout some light drizzle in the area northbound 17 approaching the summit. one lane is blocked. that's your latest "kcbs traffic." i know kiet do has been monitoring the caltrain commute. kiet, are you seeing a lot more
commuters in orange today? >> reporter: yeah. you know, we have seen a lot of orange and panda hats and giants jerseys as early as the 5 a.m. hour. they know from previous experience that if you are not in civic center by now you won't get a good seat. also, they are saying don't bother with driving. that's why we are here to give you some mass transit transportation. starting with caltrain, before the parade they have added 8 trains northbound into the city. after the parade, they will stack the trains up and then as soon as they are fully loaded they will send them off southbound from san francisco. service from san jose to gilroy will have delays of about an hour after the parade. can you guess which day was the busiest in caltrain history? it was the world series parade back in 2012. well, today the trains carry even more commuters than it did back then which means they could shatter that previous one day record. on to bart, they say the number one thing you can do is to buy a roundtrip ticket or load your clipper card ahead of time. also, avoid peak times of 6 to 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
as for bart, they are using every available train each train going to and from san francisco will be at its maximum length. and they will be running those trains as frequently as they possibly can. also, bart will be operating until 2:00 today. back here live at caltrain, they are recommending if you can work from home somehow today. might not be a bad idea. live at diridon station in san jose, kiet do, kpix 5. >> and we'll have special live coverage of the parade of champions beginning at 11:00 this morning. we'll also be streaming it live commercial-free on kpix.com/live. it is 6:39. police have apparently tracked down the man who recorded a group of bikers speeding and taunting a chp officer. investigators say they may not have caught the suspect without his own him. >> and new developments in the domestic assault investigation into 49er ray mcdonald. whether prosecutors decided to file charges.
clouds rolling into the bay area now as we head in toward the middle of the day we are going to see some heavy rainfall maybe even some thunderstorms, gusty winds. we could see some isolated hail. it's going to be a wild day on this halloween. temperatures are going be to the mid- to upper 60s in parts of the south bay. i think as you look toward the east bay, it looks like the rain will be picking up as we head in toward the middle of the day and the afternoon. temperatures there also in the mid-60s. about 65 in moraga and 66 in pleasant hill. in the north bay, we are beginning to see a few scattered light showers. those will be picking up over the next couple of hours and becoming heavy and it looks like downtown san francisco pack all your rain gear if you are headed to the parade. expecting heavy rain and gusty winds for the parade. okay, lawrence. and we are counting down the hours until the giants world series celebration. look at all the people out there. a live look at the parade route. we are going to check in on the
last-minute preparations coming up in just a moment. but a lot of folks already getting prime seats. got to be in the front row if you want to see everything. >> they have their rain gear so they are ready to go. for the first time since january, americans have cut back on consumer spending. here now is kcbs radio's financial reporter jason brooks. >> good morning, frank and michelle. i'm sure a lot of those giants fans will be making up for some of that slide as they purchase new giants gear. but in september, consumer spending pulled back by two- tenths of a percent according to the commerce department. first decline in several months. also came after a big back-to- school shopping moment in august. personal income up only two- tenths of a percent. that was the weakest wage gain since last december. we are dealing with some big gains on wall street though this morning and we can credit another central bank for printing money to help out. the bank of japan is increasing its own version of quantitiesative easing leading global stock markets higher and that's sending wall street higher with the dow jones
industrial average in record territory, s&p with a possible record. that's impressive given the sell-off and the dow and s&p were closing in on correction territory. the nasdaq was down 10% before the rebound started a couple of weeks ago. let's see how we are doing so far. the dow is up 150 points. 17,344 would be a new record. nasdaq up 57. s&p up 17. strong earnings from companies like linkedin, gopro, are also helping out the move this morning. michelle and frank, back to you. >> hard to believe it was, you know, about 16,000 a week or two ago and we are already over 17. >> reporter: we had tremendous volatility in the market. it seems to have soothed down a little bit. we'll see if we can continue going positive. >> it's a giants friday. thank you, jason brooks from kcbs news. time now for a look at what's coming up later on "cbs this morning." >> on this halloween, norah o'donnell joins us live in new
york with a preview. >> what's in the next case against captured eric frein. >> plus can the power of positive thinking reverse the effects of aging or cure diseases like cancer? a top psychologist from harvard will join us with her research in studio 57. tom brady and peyton manning face off sunday. we'll talk to the coaches who helped train the superstar quarterbacks when they were teenagers. the news is back in the morning. we'll see you at 7:00. >> i'm going to watch that story. >> i know. me, too! all right norah, thank you. have a good weekend. a homicide investigation in san jose has shut down a major downtown intersection in the city. officers called the second in santa clara treats shortly after 11:30 last night. they found a man there with a gunshot wound who was later pronounced dead at a local

today if you are trying to get in and out of san francisco. if you are planning on riding bart and you live along the peninsula, this is really for you. there's some delays right now major delays is what they are calling them on bart on that daly city line in all directions. so there was an earlier switching problem and equipment problem near daly city and so usually major delays means a half-hour or more but the trains are already crowded to begin with. we also heard that there was a disruptive person on a train near daly city, as well. so both of those issues causing some trouble now for commuters again from the peninsula trying to get into san francisco. everything else is on time. ferries are stepping up their service out of larkspur, caltrain as well offering 8 extra northbound trains into the city from san jose. here's a live look at a crowded bay bridge but not too bad actually not quite backed up through the maze yet. it was more crowded earlier actually. the roads are still dry so san mateo bridge also looks good if you are trying to get to the peninsula from the east bay. that's the good route. i wanted to show you what some
of our bridges look like right now. here's a live look at the golden gate bridge. this is moving well both directions. with the parade route along market street, between the embarcadero and van ness, that shut down to pedestrian traffic and car traffic at 9 a.m. sometimes they close it down earlier. also mission street is closed between embarcadero and van ness. basically that's the area to avoid. parking will be a nightmare, as well. that's your latest "kcbs traffic." we have rain in addition to all this. with the forecast, here's lawrence. you're talking mass transit, last time i rode bart, there was a man sitting next to me drooling on himself. boy. it wasn't even halloween. that was fabulous. it ought to be an exciting ride today. folks, around the bay area, we are looking at storm clouds moving in right now. some heavy rainfall making its way into parts of northern california. but more of that is going to start to slide in our direction. you can see it just beginning to make its way in parts of the north bay. it's putting itself together here. and it will likely intensify over the next couple of hours and spread across the entire
bay area. certainly with this kind of storm, there's a possibility of some very unstable air and some isolated thunderstorms. expect some rain and wind as the front comes through. heavy at times until the afternoon. and then maybe some leftover showers on saturday and a cool weekend but a dry sunday. all right. this low is still deepening off the coastline and the front is right here, moving in, in the next few hours bringing heavy rainfall. behind that more scattered showers. if you are traveling to the high country be prepared. we have a serious storm moving there, as well. 8 to 14 inches of snow across the high country. that's impressive for this time of year. snow level running about 7,000 feet but probably dropping down to 6500 later on this evening. all right. timing it out for you right now, some light showers in the north bay. as we head in toward the middle of the day, well, here we go. that front making its way right across the parade time. and then sliding into the south bay later on this afternoon, the good news for trick or treaters not going to be a washout. certainly a chance of some more scattered showers. but looks like most of the heavy rainfall will come through a little bit earlierer. with that in mind, looks like the rainfall amounts going to
be impressive. in fact, some places maybe over an inch of rain as the storm system comes by and certainly over the mountains. maybe as much as 2" of rain. temperatures going to be in the 60s outside, we'll keep those numbers way down, as well. showers continuing into saturday morning. then we'll dry things out by saturday afternoon, return to sunshine on sunday and monday. and warmer weather by next tuesday. but guys, you guys are going out to the parade. you're going to be going live out there in the heart of the storm! and i am looking forward to watching you. >> if you were a true weatherman you would come out with us. >> i have to check out my hi- def doppler. >> i wish that hi-def doppler was on the roof.
