6:33 am
we did have something of an odyssey to get here. we were scheduled to have a two hour lay off in chicago. that turned into a six hour lay over. we did get to see wrigley field. not that wrigley field but the one in the airport. a replica of wrigley field. we also had a regional sports experience. what do you think was happening in chicago while we were there? the chicago black hawks playing in the stanley cup playoffs. the soccer team playing in world cup. we did spend a lot of time near the airport and got in around 3:00 this morning. we've had some sleep but very little sleep. but who is complaining. we're at the nba finals. and it is the warriors against the cleveland cavaliers tied up one game a piece. you've got to figure as both of those games could have gone either way if the warriors got a game from steph curry they
6:34 am
would be ahead two games to nothing. steph played the worst game of his play off career. going 5-23 over all. just 2-15 from three point range with six turnovers. you feel like a normal step and the warriors have a 2-0 lead. >> you have to move on. you have to learn from it. >> i'm not going to let one game alter my confidence. i know as a team we're not going to let one game alter our beliefs that we are going to win the series though. >> reporter: cleveland waking up this morning. we'll see you in about an hour. we talked to some fans about what this series and a potential win for them. we'll be talking about that when we see you an hour from now. joe fonzi back to you in the studio. >> before you go. we were wondering how many fans would make the trip out there.
6:35 am

6:36 am
oakland's population 406,000 in the 2013 census. cleveland not far behind 390,000. cleveland of course located on lake erie one of the five great lake. as far as the arts oakland has the oakland museum of california and the chabot space and science center. and the city's orchestra one of the countries most highly acclaimed symphonies. oakland and cleveland are the two sports cities that have gone the longest without a championship. oakland won its last title 26 years ago when the a's beat the giant in the 1980 series. cleveland has waited 51 years.
6:37 am
very serious security flaws have been discovered within the transportation security administration at america's airports. there is a new audit out showing the tsa did not identify dozens of airport workers who are actually on the terror watch list. ktvu fox 2 paul chambers is joining us live with more on the surprising and also very disturbing report. >> reporter: that is correct. if you're traveling today or any time soon, it's probably news you don't want to hear as a tsa facing new questions about a stability to keep people safe. >> information sharing inside the government is a lot of what led to 9/11 being possible. today we still have lots of those problems. >> reporter: federal agency failed to identify 73 airport workers who may be associated with terrorism. according to a 30 plus page audit release yesterday. the tsa does not have access to all the terror watch list information it needs to make
6:38 am
proper judgments. the agency checks airline and airport applicants and workers against the department of homeland security watch list that reportedly isn't as comprehensive as the governments terrorist data base. the people in question were able to get clearance giving them access to secure areas of airports throughout the united states allowing them to work for major airlines, airport vendors and other employers. the current issue is just the latest problem for the tsa. last week a report showed under cover agents had 95% success rate at sneaking fake bombs and other weapons past airport security check points. >> thank god they weren't terrorists. that they were our own code red team going through but this is alarming. >> reporter: the tsa says they will address the employee screening issues by the end of the year. they are also working with homeland security to make sure they have access to the proper watch list and also today the tsa is going before the senate
6:39 am
committee to talk about this and explain exactly what happened. we plan to talk to people out here and see how they feel and we will monitor that hearing. dave. >> thank you, paul. we'll talk to you later. today authorities in the south bay are looking to increase penalties on people who set off fire works illegally. janine de la vega is in san jose and you've been talking with people about tougher new ordnance that could be approved today just in time before the fourth of july holiday. >> reporter: yeah pam and some people from the south bay will actually go and buy illegal fire works where they are legal and you can buy them. they'll bring them back here where they are illegal and set them off and that can be really tough to enforce when people bring them from outside the area and that is why the president of the board of supervisors is proposing new rules that would act as a deterrent. the board is set to vote this morning on whether to adopt an ordnance that penalizes people who store or discharge illegal fire works in the
6:40 am
unincorporated parts of santa clara county. under the new rules property owners who are unaware or not present when fire works are being discharged would be sent a warning letter. responsible owners could be fined $350 for the first one $700 for the second one and $1,000 for the third. >> you always are afraid of fire works hitting your roof or injuries or stuff like that. i'm not really opposed to -- we used to have little sparklers and stuff like that. but when people have a whole area and shooting stuff off, we are always concerned. >> reporter: recently the u.s. fire administration determined children under 15 years old suffered 45% of all injuries from fire works and last year in the county there were at least four people who were hurt from fire works.
6:41 am
the county has already contributed $70,000 to the rotary club which is sponsoring a big display for fourth of july and they are encouraging people to enjoy them safely from a distance and that is taking place in san jose. there are various others throughout the county including santa clara. so the vote will take place this morning. pam. >> all right it's important with the drought as well. there is a lot of dry land so going after those folks is important. thank you janine. time now is 6:41. mayor ed lee has decided not to approve funding for body cameras for deputies at san francisco's troubled main jail. the mayor's decision comes less than four months after an investigation revealed the jail guards pitted inmates against one other in fights. sheriff ross mirkarimi says not funding cameras for deputies averts the departments efforts in improving safety, accountability, and transparency. ross mirkarimi asked for $242,000 to help pay for the
6:42 am
body cameras. time is 6:41. sonoma county family still mourning the death of a teenage girl killed in a crash during a street race. >> what happened stopped all of those dreams. >> up next we'll tell you the big dreams her family says she will never get to see. >> and coming up in 20 minutes problem for commuters all because of the scorch temperatures. the reason yesterday's heat is being blamed for delays on bart and freeways across the bay area.
