it's happened again, traffic stopped right now as hundreds of protesters swarm on to interstate 880 on the east bay. at this hour authorities are still working to move them out. >> and another group of protesters has blocked train tracks in emeryville tonight. at this hour two capital corridor trains are delayed. they've been waiting more than an hour now. one headed east, the other west. it is another busy night. good evening i'm julie haener. >> and i'm frank somerville. more than 1,000 people hit the streets in east bay tonight
with a message. >> their march began about 5:00 in downtown berkeley. did he -- demonstratorred gathered at police headquarters. then hundreds of protesters marched to the over pass shutting it down in both directions. debora villalon has been with those protesters for much of the night. debora is in berkeley light now, debora, what's the situation? >> it is still a very chaotic scene. you can see one of those stopped trains right here on the tracks with protesters in front. there's also a vehicle blocking and if we spin over to the right. that's where the freeway is. and as you said, it is completely shutdown both directions after protesters brought -- walked into the traffic lanes over an hour ago. let's go to video so you can
see they have made their way toward the westbound entrance to the toll plaza. they have not managed to get on to the bay bridge. but that would appear to be their goal. and and they've blocked at this point from getting on to the bay bridge but that's certainly what chp is focusing their effort. we've also been told that a woman in labor was stuck in the traffic on interstate 880 and that was between ashby and university and that she has just been off loaded into an ambulance so that she can get the medical care that she needs. so it is a third night of protests and a third night of turmoil here in berkeley. >> three hours into this march it invaded the traffic lanes and shut down 880 at university. despite the efforts by chp to
block entrance ramps. they were simply overrun. protesters also blocked tracks. the march twisted through the streets as they reached the berkeley police quarters to face off with officers behind riot shields. it also blocked traffic and some major intersectionings. at one point sitting, chanting but peaceful. even as they continued marchs past shattered atm and other remnants of last night's destruction. police say they're seeing the same masked and hooded people
as last night. >> i think the problems will start after. they all broke all the windows they wanted to break so hopefully it stays peaceful tonight. >> reporter: so again one woman in labor on interstate 880 has been taken by ambulance to the hospital. because she was stuck in traffic by protesters who have invaded the lanes. blocking the railroad tracks here, we understand that two trains are now idle and the protesters show no signs of dispersing nor are there any police or law enforcement here ordering them to. all evening it's been hang back wait and see attitude from berkeley pd. they've been criticized for their saturday night enforcement in which they were criticized for being aggressive using tear gas, using rubber bullets. last night they hung back and
did not employ those tactics and there was a lot more vandalism in berkeley. tonight we're seeing them on bicycles but keeping a pretty wide perimeter. the marchers have been allowed to go where they want and do what they want. this is what we're seeing now, the result of this is that the train tracks are blocked and the freeway still closed. reporting live in berkeley, debora villalon, ktvu news. >> debora villalon there in berkeley. thank you. police and protesters got into a stand off on the university avenue pedestrian bridge at one point. that pedestrian bridge goes over 880. motorcycle police drove up and forced protesters to line up. eventually the protesters made their way off the bridge and toward the freeway. tonight police are looking for a person who attacked a peaceful protester with a hammer. the attack was caught on camera during last night's protest.
you just have to be steady. so that you don't give up when we don't get all the way there. the president also said that it is important to acknowledge the progress the the country has made because that gives us hope that we can make more progress. these pictures come to us from chopper 2. these protesters here are now behind the shopping center which is right next to i80 in emoryville near the shopping center and ikea. if we take our emoryville camera which i think we have here. there's the problem right

azenith smith. the height of rush hour commute it was a nightmare. this is what traffic looked like at interstate 880. the gridlock only grew worse as the night wore on. just before 3:00, police shut down both directions of 680 at the elam rock exit. after a distraught woman climbed the fence. an estimated 40-foot drop. >> we did the normal precautions, we shut the freeway down. at that point we started negotiations. the situation creating havoc for drivers using the mayor thoroughfare in san jose. at one point extending to fremont for those heading south and interstate 280 in san jose for those heading north. >> i came all the way from santa clara. san tomas and it's second road, first street. everything is just backed up. >> reporter: as police try to negotiate the patience among
drivers grew thin. >> tired. i have been at work all day, i'm just tired. >> i'm coming from cosco, which is two or three miles from here and it's already taken me 50 minutes. >> it took like 10 minutes to get there. it's just crazy. >> reporter: while most students were frustrated, others understood the tense situation at hand. >> it's bad but i feel sadder for the person that feels hopeless enough to do what they're doing. >> bare with us, we're doing our very best. obviously it's a volatile situation it can go either way at either time. and police have their crime intervention team. a group of specialists who deal with situations specifically like this one. we're told the woman is being cooperative and police won't reopen the other side of the highway. highway680 south until this is fully resolved. julie. >> a long night for thousands of people. azenith. thank you. university police evacuated part of san jose state this

in san jose, oakland. over a couple of days. how about the wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour. so here's what i'm tracking right now. here's where it currently lies one of the big things with this storm is the jet stream, the jet stream instead of going on a straight line it gets an arch to it. the speeds really increase. we have a super strong jet core. we have cold air coming this way. subtropical moisture coming this way. all the ingredients for a subtropical event as we go into the next 48 hours or so. when we come back, we're going to give you the timing on this thing. we're here in florida with these youngsters from richmond who are trying to bring home a trophy for national youth football. hear how they're preparing and what they face as their next

>> reporter: responding to public outrage, they sent a letter to vivian about the decision. they and maria submitted all of the proof of residency listed on the district's website including a rent lease letter. the district says they never offered an explanation on why vivian was investigated. >> i think it's the wrong thing that happened and someone has to be held accountable for it. >> reporter: the district responded through their attorney. >> they don't have a dedicated person that they can send out who is trained who is available to do the investigation. so it's not a frequent occurrence but they do on occasion use an investigator. >> reporter: i checked with
other school districts, san francisco and oakland say that they primarily use staff to investigate but only use private investigators in rare cases that are more complex. vivian is being allowed to attend the orinda school. but the employer says that they and others plan to keep pressing the board to try and make their transparency of their policies more transparent and see if they can get more clarity when it comes to when the policies are and when they investigate. we will send it back to you. >> jana, thank you. the city of san jose has given notice to another homeless encampment to clear out by tomorrow. just days ago the city cleared people from a large homeless encampment that was known as the jungle. some of those people simply moved their things to another

shine. in oakland, noelle walker, ktvu channel 2 news. tracking a pretty strong storm here and this is how it looks offshore now lots of subtropical moisture. strong jet stream. a little bit of cold air. and really fast moving upper level winds. the jet stream, so that's definitely going to add to a fairly volatile event here as we get into thursday morning early. that's when it's going to happen. the next couple of days are just about clouds. we have fog now showing up in the central valley. we had that dense fog advisory this morning out toward sacramento, up toward marysville. south toward the fresno area. be ready for dense fog in the valley and in our inland bay valleys. so look for that tomorrow morning and that's your tuesday. wednesday a few more clouds move in. and then wednesday night into thursday morning is when we get hit pretty good with a strong event with wind, rain, and snow in the high mountains.
