seawall from mission creek to fisherman's wharf. >> we are going to have to get very imaginative about the measure that is we implement so that we can live with these rising tides, adapt with them over time and not disconnect ourselves from the bayfront. >> at this point the project is still in the planning phase but the city will continue to collect bat on the tides and the weaknesses -- collect data on the tides and the weaknesses along the seawall. it's a turning point in the electric car market. >> chevy delivers its first chevy volt in the bay area. i'm kiet do in fremont and we have a test drive. >> uber caught up in a new spying scandal. new claims employees use insider access to stalk their exes and fiances. >> a better look inside the wreckage of the burned-out ghost ship warehouse. why the fire department says it had no reason to inspect the building. ,,

continues and the fire investigation that continues. preliminary reports show that as far as the cause of the fire, it was electrical. it was somewhere towards the back. exact cause probably will be announced in the next couple of weeks by the oakland fire department. in oakland, juliette goodrich, kpix 5. all right. get ready. are you ready? >> what, for more rain? >> it's coming. >> more rain. we need the rain. we want more! we want more! >> it's december. this is appropriate. . >> we'll show you the numbers in a second. numbers for your high temperatures today more rain is on the way later on in the week. campbell warm down by the "pruneyard" 62 degrees. olema valley 58. san pablo 58. crissy field 55.

more and more bodies will probably turn up. >> reporter: that remains to be seen but as for uncovering the real identity of this long forgotten 2-year-old, that answer may come within days. >> we have a strong candidate and i suspect that we will know fairly soon whether or not the individual we have identified is in fact miranda e. >> reporter: in san francisco, wilson walker, kpix 5. ♪[ music ]♪ coming up in the next half- hour president-elect donald trump makes his pick for the next secretary of state. >> and kanye west explains the purpose of his meeting with president-elect donald trump. >> and raiders fans holding on to hope but the plan to keep the team in oakland is far from a done deal. an update on the second key vote happening at city hall. ,,,,,,

retardants. but that's exactly what the ecology center found last year in an orbit baby car seat. they found concerning chemicals in 75% of the car seats tested. their 2015 study prompted us to start asking questions and commissioning lab tests of our own and we repeatedly found one of the most concerning flame retardants known to cause cancer even inside car seats advertised to be free of t orbit denied it was used in its products but later stopped manufacturing car seats. another issued a voluntary recall as soon as we notified the company of the findings. both were among the 15 tested again this this year's ecology center study. the findings indicate significant change. >> this year, none of the seats we tested it cppc in it. this was a long time coming. >> reporter: for the first time in 10 years none of the seats contained any chlorinated retardants and for the first time no lead or hazardous
metals. >> 13 out of the 15 still contained brominated flame retardants. >> reporter: which can be toxic and accumulate in the body, which they found in warning labors, velcro and fabrics. many fabrics are naturally flame resistant. flame retardants migrate into dust and kids ingest. high levels were found inside my child the same flame retardant found in her car seat. gear heart says all 15 of the car seats tested this year contained phosphorus based retard dance believed to be safer but they say health related data is lacking. >> we want to start that cycle of using our children as an experiment on hazards of chemicals and waiting until the we have the health impacts on your kids. >> reporter: federal law doesn't require health safety testing before a retardant is used in a carseat but a 40-year- old regulation requires a small flame test for every car seat
component which manufacturers say it too expensive to pass without using flame retardant and is irrelevant to safety in a real world car fire. >> the safety standard needs to be fixed. >> reporter: the study quoted our investigation which found regulators had never even evaluated a standard's effectiveness in children's carseats and were unaware of any evidence that the standards or flame retardants added to meet it provide a benefit to the seat. our test showed a car seat sample that did not meet the standard formed as well as or better than the one that d while not officially part of the study the report applauded the 2017 [ indiscernible ] car seat believed to be the first without any flame retardants at all. instead, the company says it will use naturally flame resistant fabrics and engineering for fire safety an impressive expensive seat that will apply to only one model one fabric and run $350.
gearheart says regulatory changes are needed for affordable car seats. >> the fundamental issue of justice to working and poor families. >> reporter: the ecology center supports legislation recently introduced that would modernize the 1970s flammability standard so they wouldn't be necessary to make an affordable children's car seat. the industry says the presence of a chemical in a product doesn't mean it's harmful or not in compliance with laws. for more information go, to cbssf.com. rainfall totals for the month are already from two to five inches especially in the north bay. some of you may double that by thursday night. which hour looks like it will be the wettest? how cold we're going to get after that rainfall. it's all next. >> i'm dennis o'donnell. coming up, what is the only thing missing on jack del rio's resume'? >> i played a long time, didn't have one in my career. >> meanwhile, another former raiders coach lays it on thick. >> i was the most excited that
