launch attacks on the homeland and the chairman of the house homeland security committee says it goes beyond just the fourth. >> you have the one year anniversary. and now we have the fourth of july coming up which is obviously one of these holidays we celebrate that they like to target this sort of thing. >> reporter: last week we saw a trio of isis inspired attacks from france, tanisha. saying we will also adjust security measures seen and unseen as necessary to protect the american people. but the fear is that these kinds of attacks are difficult to predict and disrupt because of the nature of isis. a much different threat than al qaeda presented with recorruptments spread -- recruitments spreading around the world. >> isis is terror populism. it's from the bottom up. and that makes it so difficult for us to detect and stop it.
>> u.s. officials are not talking about any specific kind of threats. this is a concern just about the generalized idea of a threat especially when you have so many public gatherings about to take place for the fourth of july. >> all right pretty scary. thank you, doug. time is 6:16. had to double check there. alex in for sal this morning. hair looking pretty good alex. >> no wind in the studio. >> that is right. no major gusts here in the traffic center. well traffic generally speaking looking pretty good for most folks around the bay area. we do want to let you know if we are driving in the east bay there is one trouble spot to bare in mind here and we will get straight to the maps. the backup is only getting worse along 880 southbound. this was all the result of a
