oakland where a two-alarm warehouse fire is now contained. it started around 3 a.m. one person was found dead inside the building shortly after firefighters arrived to the 700 block of 66th avenue. crews haven't determined the cause yet. today the california high- speed rail authority is expected to approve major changes to the planned system connecting the bay area and southern california. kpix 5 reporter kiet do is the live in san jose, where they will meet in just a few hours. kiet. >> reporter: good morning. the clock is ticking for the high-speed rail authority. by law, they have another nine days to approve their own business plan and according to the "l.a. times" that will very likely happen at a board meeting set to happen in san jose in a couple of hours. 150 miles away in fresno is where you will find construction workers building the first sections of tracks, building the guide way where the train will go. back in february the high-speed rail authority announced a big change in plans. the train would first come to san jose, to keep costs down,
instead of tunneling through the tehachapi and san gabriel mountains which would be very expensive. going to san jose first reduced the coulds from 68 to $64 billion. it was largely a political move since getting the train up and running would help attract more funding. at the meeting today, expect critics to grill the board about where they will find the billions of dollars needed to finish the project. >> this project is going to fail. and when it fails, everybody in california is going to be turned off to the idea of high- speed rail. oh, no, we tried that. that's a disaster. >> reporter: despite complaints the "l.a. times" is reporting the business plan will pass today with a few tweaks but it will be interesting to see if the board has any more ideas on how to pay for it. the meeting begins at 9 a.m. at the county building in san jose. we're live, kiet do, kpix 5. >> i think a lot of people in the south bay want to know what's the latest estimate on when the fresno-to-san jose line would be completed. >> reporter: yeah. the last numbers we heard were
about 2025 is the completion date. when it's done, the best estimates we have is that it will reduce the travel time from fresno down from about 3 hours to 40 minutes. >> thank you. the smoke and smell of 4/20 is gone on hippie hill but a huge mess remains. kpix 5's anne makovec is live interest on the highs and the lows and the leftovers of 4/20. >> reporter: the city has more clean-up to do here on hippie hill. they are planning on starting that this morning as city leaders take stock in how they handled this huge event, which is unpermitted by the way. it's sort of become a local tradition. thousands of people gathering every april 20th, 4/20, which is code for marijuana here to smoke pot. it's illegal actually to smoke anything in golden gate park but the police basically let it happen. all was going peacefully yesterday until somebody pulled out a gun at around 6 p.m.
and the crowd around them started a stampede. there was also a separate armed rob pri during the event. >> -- there was also a separate armed robbery during the event. >> we are out here doing it and they are out here trying to cause trouble and that's not needed. we all came together for a purpose, one love. >> reporter: and there was quite a mess once the smoke cleared. approximately 10,000 pounds of trash left behind. it's going to cost the city about $100,000 when it's all said and done, police overtime and clean-up for this event. live in golden gate park, anne makevoc, kpix 5. >> how do you think this reflects on the campaign for legalizing marijuana? >> reporter: you know, when you have drama like this, it doesn't reflect well on marijuana but you have to keep in mind there are about 10,000 people here in golden gate park. so that level of issue is not that extreme when it comes to that many people packed into one area.
also keep in mind there were a lot of other drugs and alcohol out here, as well. in san jose an unusual alliance to stop measure c which would gut the current medical marijuana laws. former mayor chuck reed and other city leaders joins reps from medical marijuana dispensaries at city hall on 4/20. once political adversaries, the group is now uniting to oppose the measure on the june ballot. >> it is creating a completely unfair operating and unsafe environment for the citizens and patients of the city of san jose. you have illegal collectives not paying taxes not paying into the state coffers, not having workers' comp. and not testing their "medicine" and selling that to patients. >> among other things, measure c would list zoning restrictions and allow dispensaries to open next to a daycare, church or home, guts a strong regulatory system
currently in place, and reduces penalties for selling marijuana to kids to a $100 fine. time now is 5:04. it's been a busy day in traffic. let's start with weather. >> it's very busy in weather. today is like the calm before the storm. i'm impressed the way this system is beginning to shape up. we'll see significant rainfall here in the bay area. okay, less than an inch but we'll a take it! it's our live weather camera looking out towards the bay bridge now, mainly cloudy skies, temperatures are mild for this hour into the 50s. it's now 60 degrees in oakland. we do anticipate temperatures today to come down. going to feel a little muggy due to the increased cloud cover in the westerly flow. there you see the clouds stacking up right here in the bay area. mainly cloudy today and we have this area of low pressure that brings us rainfall beginning tomorrow morning. if you want to track the rain and when it should arrive here's your thursday lunch hour. we're talking about mainly cloud cover and there's your rain. this time tomorrow morning, it begins in the north bay.
then slices across the central bay into the santa clara valley. by the evening commute, we have more spotty scattered showers and even the possibility of an afternoon thunderstorm. we clear out nicely just in time for the weekend. we'll talk more about the impending rainfall but right now let's send it over to gianna. >> good morning. we have an ongoing traffic alert as you work your way along 80 this morning eastbound. some updated information. we are getting word from chp that one lane is now open. this is east 80 before cummings skyway. there's two separate accidents here overnight. the latest being a big rig involved with three separate other vehicles. looks like it's a fatal accident. big delays there. one lane is open, the right lane, traffic squeezing through. three left lanes closed. past there, they are just wrapping up roadwork also so that should help relieve congestion through there. use an alternate. traffic is being diverted off
cummings skyway. use 4 to 680. that will probably change now that the right lane is open. elsewhere a vehicle fire westbound 580 at eden canyon not causing too many delays but it is over to the right shoulder. back to you. >> thank you. it's been a violent week in san jose. the city is dealing with its third homicide this week. police say a man was stabbed to death on mill stream drive around 9 p.m. at the mill pond 2 mobile home park. so far no arrests have been made. today three bay area counties are cracking down on human trafficking. a summit in san leandro is bringing together district attorneys and mayors from alameda, contra costa and san mateo counties. some of the topics include child exploitation, law enforcement and criminal justice. organizers say that 13 of the areas where child sex trafficking is most common are in california. you should never be a litterbug but that's especially true today. the chp and caltrans are out in full force today picking up litter and they will also be patrolling. keep in mind, tomorrow is earth
day and you can face a fine of up to $900 for throwing trash from your car. offensive graffiti at palo alto high school is prompting mr. toys ask for students' help to find the cull -- prompting police to ask for students' help to find the culprit. messages read black lives suck scrawled around the campus. the school district is asking students who may know something to step forward. >> we work very hard to maintain a safe learning environment so when we see this kind of language on our campus, you know, we have to take it very seriously. >> one silver lining to the incident, students say that the graffiti is sparking healthy classroom debate on racism and politics. an east bay high school is attempting to make amends for having ex-49er ray mcdonald speak to the students. parents criticized tennyson high school in hayward for inviting mcdonald to campus last month. he is accused of raping a woman in 2014 and faces an upcoming
trial in santa clara county. attorney gloria allred is representing the woman and tomorrow she will speak to students at tennyson about "consent." time now 5:09. your money is getting a historic makeover. a look at the changes. >> a miniature horse, more on the rare surgery. >> we're not horsing around in the kpix 5 weather center. good morning, everyone. we are tracking incoming system that promises to bring rain right here to the bay area. >> and lanes still blocked heading to the carquinez bridge. i'll have an update on this fatal accident in just a few minutes. ,, ,,,,,,

580. elsewhere though it gets busier. i'll show you that in a second. here's the bay bridge. more cars out of oakland into san francisco. we are holding steady with drive times, 18 minutes from the carquinez bridge to the maze. most of the bay area bridges are okay this morning. no troubles on the san mateo bridge. here's a look at the golden gate bridge. traffic is moving along nicely. 14 minutes 580 to san francisco. here's 580 where we are seeing a backup. westbound to 205, at least as you work your way towards greenville we are seeing some decent delays for the morning drive but nothing out of the ordinary. no accidents or incidents through this portion but give yourself 20 minutes to make the drive and then another 15 minutes from the top of the altamont pass to the dublin interchange. once you get on 680 no troubles. you have giants in town day game at at&t taking on the d- backs. it's dry now but that will change.
here's roberta. >> we are going to have the giants forecast coming up. right now let's look towards sfo. good morning. 5:16. mostly cloudy skies over our local airports but so far no reports of any local airport delays. currently we have air temperatures standing in the 50s to 60 degrees and the light winds. a little muggy out the door. the winds today will rotate south and increase 5 to 10 miles per hour. satellite and radar shows we have clouds moving in over antioch and napa valley. temperatures uniform into the 50s. so says jerry wilcox in antioch and dave in napa. those are our weather watchers. your next rainfall, friday morning. from this guy right here, this area of low pressure out over the open waters right now. i have squashed our computer models together to come up with this futurecast. 1:00, everybody cloudy. hit-and-miss scattered showers in the north bay in the
afternoon. this front comes through the bay area by this time tomorrow morning and then sags to the south but behind it more showers and even the possibility of an isolated thunderstorm for your friday. now once all this passes through, it will set the stage for a dry weekend. when we tally the numbers we'll have significant rainfall. generally less than an inch but we'll get to that. we have a beach hazard statement in effect for today due to the area of low pressure causing some strong rip currents and sneaker waves so be mindful of that. meanwhile your futurecast shows by about 8:00 .01" of rain. the system will provide us with about nearly an inch of rain in the ukiah area once it passes through at and three-tenths at redwood city. 70s in the central valley today. sunshine in the greater lake tahoe area but up to six inches of snow by tomorrow night in the high sierra and then we have a break saturday, more snow sunday in the greater lake
tahoe area. breezy tomorrow, northwest winds up t 25. so tomorrow april showers, breezy conditions, seasonal temperatures over the weekend into the 70s. that's a look at your weather forecast. a miniature horse named shine has earned his favorite treat of all. gob stoppers. shine has been one tough cookie after receiving a prosthetic leg. the trouble started last year when he was viciously attacked by a dog. shine's owner found him bleeding badly so she brought him to colorado state university's veterinary hospital. there was an amputation and prepped for a prosthetic. >> he had to fight for two months before we got here. and i knew people fight that hard but he had the fight to make it through this surgery. >> and plenty of gob stoppers are going shine's way because he was nearly trotting just two days after surgery. good morning, everybody. miss me? don't answer that.
hey, good morning, everybody. i bet there's a little bounce in the step of the sharks fans this morning. sharks and the kings last night, game 4. they were not fooling around. here's head coach peter deboer. san jose 2-1 series lead. brent burns a no doubt about it shot to open up the scoring. man advantage, captain pavelski in front. it's 2-0! they led 3-0 into the third. sweated out a 3-2 final. what was the difference last night, coach? >> couple of things happened. i think the group, um, you know, felt last game we could have won the game had we cashed in on the power play even though we liked a lot of what we did, we didn't stick one in the net and think they came out tonight to make sure if we got the opportunities to make they were going to put it in and
they did that. baseball, giants madison baumgarner called on to stop a three-game skid last night. what happened against arizona? 7th inning, castilla, that one not coming back, boom! 2-0. giants cut it to one in the 8th. fast forward to the ninth. tying run on third base. trevor brown, he looked at strike three. diamondbacks beat the giants 2- 1 last night. they have lost 7 of the last 8 including four in a row. they will try to stop it later on today. the a's victorious in new york. they beat the yankees 5-2 yesterday. the a's are 5-0 on the road. that's it for now. i'll be back later. have a good one. the warriors are looking to take a stranglehold on their series with the rockets tonight. steph curry has an ankle
injury, status still up in the air. after the practice he spoke about resisting the temptation to come back too soon. >> making sure that i'm not putting myself in jeopardy of doing further damage or hurting myself even more. balancing that with, you know, great time right now for to us keep doing what we're doing and take advantage of, um, this play-off run so just got to be smart. >> golden state can take a 3-0 series lead with a win tonight. no nba team has ever come back from down three games to none to win a series. the play of the day from major league baseball. padres and the pirates and san diego's melvin upton slashing the leather in the 9th inning. take a look at this. upton to the wall over the wall takes the home run away. the very next batter, he makes a nice running catch to cap off the inning. the padres get the win and he has our play of the day.
and in just a couple of hours the high-speed rail authority is set to lock in their plans to build the bullet train to come to san jose first. >> the smoke has cleared here in golden gate park and there's a bit of a mess left behind. coming up, the moments that proved to be a bit of a buzz kill for the 4/20 celebration. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

at hippie hill later on today as the city really takes stock of what was generally peaceful. the smoke-out on hippie hill main tailed a mellow vibe that covered the party in a purple haze. until this moment. [ screaming and running ] >> reporter: it was just around 6 p.m. when someone pulled out a gun on hippie hill and thousands ran. >> a stampede. one person ran, everybody ran. >> it was crazy. >> reporter: this partier was nearly trampled falling through a barbecue and landing in a giant overturned pot of spaghetti. >> all i heard was some girl scream. i turned and everybody running toward me pushing. >> reporter: there was also a separate armed robbery during the event. and there was as we have seen over the past several years quite a mess left behind. approximately 10,000 pounds of trash. we are going to hear from the director of the san francisco
parks and rec department later on this morning about some of the lessons we learned this year. live in golden gate park, anne makevoc, kpix 5. >> anne, all this clean-up, how much does it cost the city? >> reporter: they think overall this event costs the city about $100,000 when it comes to police overtime and clean-up. it is an unpermitted event, but it's something that the city has been planning for. >> thank you. as people partied all over the bay for "420" one elephant in the room. recreational pot is not legal in california. oakland's harborside health center is one of many dispensaries ready to back any ballot measure that turns the tables. it even registers voters on site. "fortune" magazine shows harborside has the money to push for legalization. it sells about $35 million in medical marijuana every year. >> we have "high" hopes that we will be legal next "420". >> he is confident california
will be the fifth state to legalize. a recent poll from cbs news shows over 50% of americans also think marijuana use should be legal. developing in antioch police say a highway shooting led to a car hitting a lowe's garden center. the drive had a bullet wound to the head. it's not clear yet if it's related to a nearby incident. there's been a string of shootings on bay area freeways. police say they are gang- related and targeted. yet another homicide in san jose. it's the third this week. police say a man was stabbed to death on mill stream drive around 9 p.m. it happened at the mill pond two mobile home park. so far no arrests. major changes will be announced today to the bullet train system being built to connect the bay area to southern california. kpix 5 reporter kiet do is live
in san jose, where the california high-speed rail authority will meet in a few hours. >> reporter: good morning. all the major players in high- speed rail will be here at 9 a.m. they have until the end of the month to approve their own business plan that has drawn fire from critics. but according to the "l.a. times" it looks like that plan is probably going to pass anyway. the project itself is already under way in fresno where crews are busy at work erecting thetors for the elevated portion of the track. they are moving highway 99 about 100 feet. they are 1/2 dozen active work sites the first in a series of construction packages to be stitched together between l.a. and san francisco. to save money they decided to build fresno to san jose instead of tunneling through the mountains to southern california first. the hope is that investors would see the train in operation, making it easier to attract funding to take the train all the way to l.a. it was a coup for the bay area but had critics in southern california howling.
>> what i would say is you have to start somewhere. and the central valley is a god place to start. >> reporter: the high-speed rail authority has been hearing complaints for months. but they are expected to pass the plan today. the meeting starts at 9:00 here at the county building in downtown san jose. kiet do, kpix 5. >> kiet, we know the numbers have been fluid but what's the latest estimate on the cost? >> reporter: so the cost went down from going to san jose, it went down by $4 billion down from $68 billion to $64 billion. back to you. >> thank you, kiet do in san jose. time now 5:35. another check of weather with roberta. >> i like monitoring the weather conditions by seeing our reporters and how they are dressed out there. did you notice the light jacket kiet do had, looking dashing and dapper this morning? good morning, everybody. light jacket. that's all you need as you step out the door this morning.
we have temperatures very mild in the high 50s and low 60s. south winds 3 to 6 miles per hour. look at oakland! 60 degrees it's in the mid-50s in santa rosa. this time yesterday we were at 48. okay. here's our futurecast. this is what creek expect today by lunch hour. mostly cloudy skies. and then as we proceed to about this time tomorrow, we have rain slicing from north bay across the central bay into the santa clara valley and more rain in time for the evening commute. dry for the weekend. today is a mainly cloudy day. at the coast a beach hazard statement in effect. we anticipate some sneaker waves and very strong rip currents in advance of the area of low pressure. numbers are coming down today but still mild in the 60s and in the low 70s. hey, we're going to track the arena together and also tell you how much rain to -- we're going to track the rain together and also tell you ran up to expect as well as snow in tahoe coming up. traffic alert continues
along 80 this morning. eastbound this trouble spot cummings skyway but they have opened another lane so we have two right lanes now open. two left lanes still closed. this is an overnight accident. actually two separate accidents. the second one that happened about 3:20 this morning resulted in a fatality so a lot of activity for the investigation still on scene. now we are seeing delays in both directions now as you worker way near and around the carquinez bridge. we have late running roadwork on the westbound side that's causing some delays. that should be picked up as of now and, of course, spectator slowing as the morning commute gets in full swing. westbound 580 at eden canyon a vehicle fire clearing, to the right, no delays through there. westbound 580 busy as you work your way out of tracy this morning. gets better towards 680. and the bay bridge the metering lights are on. >> thank you. the political season has created tension nationwide between the candidates and voters. uc president janet napolitano took a term stand in support of
free speech on the campus yesterday. her message comes after recent chalkings at uc campuses with messages like, deport them all, build the wall, save the tacos. janet napolitano says there's a thin line between freedom of speech and hate speech. >> well, a lot of as we know political speech can be offensive. these are open speech campuses and campus communities ought to be places where different and sometimes extreme points of view are expressed. >> she also said it's exciting to see the younger generation so passionate about the political process. but they should express their passion in a respectful manner. on the campaign trail as the underdogs push for more delegates front-runner roast the competition. senator bernie sanders needs to win 73% of the remaining delegates in order to score the party's nomination. senator ted cruz hopes that party leaders will take his side at a republican convention that is bound to be heated. donald trump says that he is going to hire a speech writer and use a teleprompter now to be more presidential but trump
and hillary clinton aren't afraid to tear down rivals. >> we lyin' ted. we have crooked hillary. i won't go over the others because they're now defeated. >> when i hear donald trump and ted cruz talk about international -- [ applause and cheers ] >> -- issues -- >> boo! >> -- i mean, what they say is not only offensive, it's down right dangerous! >> now all the candidates have their eyes on the hundreds of delegates at stake in tuesday's primaries. when you have enough money in the bank to pay for all the basics, the natural next step is investing. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger warns us how our vices can make things go badly. what's the root of our poor investment performance? >> reporter: i blame it on being human beings. it's terrible. because behavioral economists say that we "suffer" from two specific biases when markets are going up. number one, overconfidence in
our own abilities to pick winners. and two, optimism which wednesday many of to us believe that we -- which convinces many of us to believe that we can outperform the market. that's not true. over the last 20 years, the average stock mutual fund investor lagged the s&p by, get this, 4.7% a year. wow! we really stink at investing! [ laughter ] >> what holds us back and what can we do about it? >> reporter: we're talking about when markets go up. but when they go down we suffer from something called loss aversion. that prompts us to blow out of the market at the worst possible time. not to mention that when everyone else is selling, there's something called a purging effect. that's when we do what everyone else does. you know your mom told you not to do that. so to prevent these kinds of reactions, why don't you take a look at your own behavior. over the last decade, were you reactive to events or were you able to stick to your game plan? do you have anxiety about your
investments? some degree of worry, okay. not a problem. but you know the difference between a healthy respect for volatility of markets and the anxiety that can rob you of a good night's sleep. if you fear you may be your own worst enemy when it comes to investing, you should try to use an automatic investment platform like betterment or wells front, rebalance ira. all these companies have great algorithms that should prevent you from acting like the human being that you are. [ laughter ] >> all right. yes. jill schlesinger, thank you. time now 5:41. now you can celebrate "420" all year in las vegas. the pot themed wedding chapel where you could be saying "i do." ,,,,,,,,
