5:00 am
the left-hand side, you can see a roof cam of the beautiful bay bridge and on the right, oh!! we have been talking about the morning commute starting earlier and earlier. and there you see the proof. jaclyn's "diamonds and rubies." >> that's right. >> that's a positive outlook on it. [ laughter ] >> 21 years ago when i started this show, there used to be absolutely nobody on the roads when i was coming in at "zero dark thirty" and now it's a gentsle flow at 2:30, 2:45 a.m. and up your job cut out for you. >> absolutely. you wonder what everyone is doing? going to work! >> they are getting ready for this. this is big, beautiful and smelly, the gilroy garlic festival! it's all weekend long. jaclyn is going to update you on what she believes the traffic woes will be heading into gilroy because you know what that's like. into the 80s and 90s. looking out at sfo, we have
5:01 am
overcast skies. good morning, everyone. 50s and 60s. it's just not cloudy everywhere. we have those clouds right there right now stacked up at the coast. saturating the bay even marching inland a good 60 miles towards the santa rosa area. overcast now in san jose. clearing out to the abundance of sunshine. and 90 degrees. just a couple of degrees cooler than yesterday but we're talking about 100 pretty much for the next 7 days. we'll pinpoint the hottest days coming up at 5:18 but let's say good morning to jaclyn. >> good morning. as roberta was saying, the traffic along 101 if you are heading down to the gilroy garlic festival, expect delays along the stretch but many folks coming as far as stockton or the sacramento areas, so you can expect delays along 580 making your way in 680 or 880. be prepared for lots of extra congestion in that area. right now, we are tracking an accident northbound 101 at
5:02 am
trimble road. crash is on the shoulder, no delays. crash on southbound 280 at farm hill boulevard but we are seeing a backup out of san francisco down into san mateo county along southbound 280. no reports of any accidents and no reports of any roadwork along that stretch. other than that, quiet for folks out of hayward to foster city. it was a dramatic night on capitol hill in a surprising turn the senate failed to pass the so-called skinny healthcare bill. three republican senators cast the votes that made the difference. and jackie ward joins us now to tell us what's next for obamacare. >> it was a late-night in washington. that's for sure. president trump already calling those three voters out on twitter. here's what he said. three republicans and 48 democrats let the american people down. as i said from the beginning, let obamacare implode. then deal. watch. these are the three republicans who voted against the bill. of arizona senator john mccain,
5:03 am
senator lisa murkowski of alaska, and senator susan collins of maine. so this is how it went down last night. the senate debated the so- called "skinny repeal" bill on the senate floor. that was introduced by senator mitch mcconnell. the bill would have only stripped away parts of the affordable care act. republican leaders said they were not trying to replace the aca, rather this bill would have been a placeholder to trigger negotiations. but in a 51-49 vote, the bill failed. >> this is, you know, clearly a disappointing moment. now, imagine many of our colleagues on the other side are celebrating. >> we are not celebrating. we are relieved. >> reporter: nancy pelosi said: now, congress must finally pivot to the long overdue bipartisan work to update and improve the fordable care act .. and to continue to lower am s' health costs." it's uncl the house will the house g- us was ex convene to figure ou steps this morning .. but that w ore the latest bill d. the u-s senate assed a bill to impose new ons on
5:04 am
russia. >> reporter: it's unclear what the house will do next. the house gop caucus was expected to convene to figure out next steps this morning. but that was before the latest bill failed. the u.s. senate has passed a bill to impose new sanctions on russia. the bill limits the kinds of business energy companies can do with russia and gives congress new powers to block the president from easing sanctions. it's unclear whether president trump will sign the bill but congress would almost certainly override a presidential veto. this morning, moscow retaliated by ordering a reduction in the number of u.s. diplomats in russia. and closing down an american recreation retreat outside the russian capital. a plan to spend $1.6 billion on a wall along the u.s./mexico border is moving forward. house lawmakers voted to approve the plan as part of a massive $658 billion defense spending measure. the wall was a key part of president trump's campaign. he also promised that mexico would pay for it. there could be problems when the plan gets to the senate due to spending caps. a legal battle brewing over
5:05 am
the oakland raiders plan to relocate to las vegas. kpix 5's jessica flores live at raiders headquarters in alameda to explain how fans are trying to fight back. >> reporter: good morning. well, it could be an uphill legal battle for those fans. they formed a group called forever oakland. they are going to do whatever they can to keep the raiders local and today, they are asking the group that runs the coliseum to stand behind them and support them in a potential lawsuit. now, today that meeting kicks off between oakland-alameda coliseum authority. they will hear the presentation of the forever oakland initiative. they will discuss all their legal options and the fans are basically trying to block the raiders' move by suing to keep the team's name and colors in oakland. it's the same strategy that forced the cleveland browns to change names to become the baltimore ravens. the raiders will move in 2020 to las vegas. the forever oakland group has
5:06 am
enlisted an attorney who sued the nfl before. jessica flores, kpix 5. happening today, attorneys for one of the men charged in the deadly oakland warehouse fire that killed 36 people will ask the judge to significantly reduce his bail. max harris has been held on more than $1 billion bail since -- or $1 million since his arrest last month. he and derick ion almena the master tenant at the ghost ship warehouse each face voluntary manslaughter charges for the december 2 fire. prosecutors say harris held the landlord to rent places in the building. we have new information about a crime spree in the east bay. four suspects were arrested for breaking into more than 50 cars last week. several cars were damaged outside a hampton inn in brentwood. one cast war stolen and dozens of others damaged in livermore. two men and two underaged boys were arrested.
5:07 am
police released the adult mugshots. they are both 20 years old and have ties to oakland. later today, the golden gate bridge authority could take another step forward getting the 80-year-old toll plaza a face-lift. that's where we find kpix 5's katie nielson. it's more than just anesthetic update. right? >> reporter: that's right. the bridge authority says the current toll collecting equipment is outdated and needs to be updated. that's why later today, the board of directors will vote on whether to hire an oakland- based engineering firm to help redesign the look and function of the toll plaza. the current design would house updated equipment that would work with fastrak transponders from northern and southern california. it would also allow workers to do maintenance without being near traffic and eliminate the outdated tollbooth from between traffic lanes. >> we could put in the same thing we have now or look at new technology and what's going to pave the way for the future.
5:08 am
>> reporter: if approved, it would bring the current cost of the project up to $6.9 million. now, one thing that won't change is that art-deco clock that's at the top of the toll plaza. bridge designers say they will definitely find a place for it in the new toll plaza. live at the golden gate bridge, katie nielsen, kpix 5. today at a handover party, 30 people are set to finally get their hands on the tesla's much hyped model 3. more than 373,000 people had placed deposits on the car last spring but not one of them has been fully informed about when they will get it, which options it will come with, and what price they will ultimately owe. today tesla is expected to clarify some of that fine print. an annual report tracking conditions at lake tahoe suggests that climate change could be leaving its mark. temperatures there are warming 14 times the historic average.
5:09 am
studies out of uc-davis that shows that lake tahoe is warming half a degree fahrenheit each year over four years. it says this month, tahoe is on track to have the highest surface temperature on record. the research says our wet winter did little to stop the rise in temperatures. >> even with all that record flow, that still represents less than 1% of the water in lake tahoe. >> scientists are warning besides temperature changes, tree deaths are also being monitored in the tahoe area. some 30,000 trees died in 2016 compared to half that number the year before. and that of course could present a risk of wildfires. time now is 5:09. bay area environmentalists are up in arms over a plan to ship more oil through the bay. >> and why civil unrest in south america could lead to a spike in u.s. gas prices. >> from the kpix weather center, i'll be talking about a

"skydrone5" gives us a look at it. phillips wants to more than double the number of ships that deliver crude oil every year. currently, 59 tankers are allowed to make deliveries to the site on san pablo bay. the new plan would allow for 135 ships. one environmental group says more deliveries would lead to more oil spills in the bay. >> the increase in ship traffic i think increases the potential that a ship will have some sort of catastrophic accident and have a major oil spill. >> phillips says it wants to

county neighborhood. look at the scene in windsor yesterday afternoon. about 100 gallons of pink fire retardant covered about a dozen cars, homes and sidewalks in the area. a cal fire tanker plane dropped it just before landing at the sonoma county airport. some firefighters spent the afternoon cleaning up cars. the thick sticky fire retardant is harmless but workers are taking precaution to prevent it from going into storm drains and nearby creeks. there's no fire in the area so it's not clear why the tanker dropped the retardant. >> a big whoopscy. >> yeah, it was. >> i believe also we have several reported fires have been on the scene so we know you can get it off your clothing safely in a washing machine and it is pretty clean if it does go down the storm drains but i really appreciate them trying to hamper that. what a job!

5:38 am
southern california. it would also allow workers to do maintenance without being near traffic and eliminate the outdated tollbooths from between lanes. >> it's also about worker safety because a gantry is a system that workers can come up top and do maintenance without getting in the way of traffic. >> reporter: if approved it would bring the current cost of the project up to $6.9 million. now, the one thing that won't change is the art-deco clock at the top of the toll plaza. they will find a place for it. live at the golden gate bridge, katie nielsen, kpix 5. delta is looking to expand its footprint outside the u.s. hena daniels of has that story and more. >> reporter: good morning. happy friday! here on wall street, tech stocks finished lower pulling the s&p and nasdaq off record highs. the dow jones industrial average gained 85 points but the nasdaq lost 40.
