7:01 am
that's good and clear on cobb today. ill hope when this inversion -- i hope when this inversion clears up -- i think they will get good news. temperatures will be in the 80s. temperatures, 40s, that's good. the low will be with us today and tomorrow and then it will eject out. today it's keeping temperatures, 40s and 50s. napa airport 49. now they are 51. down in the santa cruz mountains, boonny dunes santa cruz and -- bonnie dunes, 60s, 70s and 80s. sal, what do you want to start with? i want to start with the bay bridge. if you are driving to the bay bridge, there is a big backup. it was called by earlier police activity on the span. an intense search. we'll talk about that in a moment. but the traffic angle is this -- look at the macarthur maze. you can see traffic is slow coming around the corner here to a very crowded bay bridge toll plaza.
7:02 am
give yourself extra time. there was a police search after a crash and some unusual circumstances. we're just about to talk to alex who has been following the story. before we do that, way tonight talk about the san mateo bridge as an alternate. it's not bad heading out to the high rise. the dumbarton bridge is okay. we had an earlier grass fire on the east palo alto side of the bridge. that's been taken care of. livermore valley, 580 traffic on the freeway is moderate. it's a little bit slow on the altamont pass. there's also a rollover collision west of discovery drive. it's closed between isabel and the outlet mall and some of the locals say that road, people get going really fast there. it may or may not have contributed to that very serious crash there. we're still following that developing story i talked about of the search for a woman who fell into the bay after a crash on the bay bridge this morning. ktvu fox 2's alex savidge is near the toll plaza with why
7:03 am
search teams say they need to find her soon. alex? >> reporter: yeah, they certainly want to find her fast. you know, sal, a chp sergeant told me this morning that in all likelihood or there is a very strong possibility that this woman did survive this fall. it was not that high of a fall. there's an intense search. it's underway here along the shoreline close to the bay bridge toll plaza and also out in the waters as wellle as we push in here -- as well. as we push in, you might be able to see. that's a chp officer walking through the bushes trying to find any sign of this woman who has been missing since she fell from the bay bridge very early this morning. now, take a look at the scene in the last couple of hours. officers got calls from drivers about a woman seen walking near the shoreline in this area and that's who they are looking for now. this woman fell from the bay bridge just after 2:00 this morning. the chp says she climbed the rail along the bike path and then either slipped or let go falling about 70 to 80 feet
7:04 am
into the water. now, the fall came after a single car crash in the eastbound lanes of the bridge. the missing woman was the driver of that car that crashed. there were two other women also in the car with her. all three of them are in the early 20s. right after the accident. all of the women got out. two of them climbed over onto the bike path. that's adjacent to the eastbound lanes and as the chp officer was coming up, he saw the driver of the car climb over the rail and then go into the water. now, she could have survived this fall but the waters to the bay are between about 50 and 60 degrees and searchers want to find her soon. >> the longest stay in the water, you -- the longer you stay in the water, you can suffer from hypothermia and the longer to locate the per, the survivability is lessened. >> reporter: the two other women inside the car with the driver were detained by chp officers and they are being
7:05 am
questioned right now. the chp says right now, it's unclear what prompted this woman to climb up onto the rail. it's also unclear whether she intentionally let go and fell into the water or if she lost her grip. in either case, the coast guard put out -- put a helicopter in the air in morning and put a boat in the water trying to find her. as we bring you back out here live, you can see this is the scene ahong the shoreline north of the -- along the shoreline, north of the bay bridge toll plaza. a number of chp officers walking the shoreline trying to find this woman. they did get reports from drivers in the area who say they saw a woman walking along the shoreline, several reports. that's what they are checking on, trying to find her missing after falling from the bridge overnight. >> okay. i know it's early but i'm assuming if the police are questioning the women who were with her, they know her name. i'm assuming they know where she lives and they are checking that area as well. >> reporter: yeah, we can make
7:06 am
the assumption that they do know who she is. they are not releasing her name. they are saying she's in her early 20s. in all likelihood her friends in the car have provided some information to the chp and they may be getting a sense of what prompted her to do what she did. their first priority at this point, they say is to find her and make sure she's okay after a fall like that. >> all right. we'll talk to you later, get more information. thank you. well, oakland police now confirming a national gas line in west oakland was deliberately disconnected at a home that exploded yesterday morning injuring two sheriff deputies. they were serving and evection order at a triplex in west oakland at the time. the deputies and a locksmith were drilling outlook the locks when there was an explosion. the building burst into flames. now, once the fire was out, a badly burned body was found inside that building. one man who escaped the flames said the whole thing seemed
7:07 am
suspicious. >> the way the key was in the lock and the gas having to be on and then you find a body inside. >> the two sheriff deputies are expected to be okay. the owner of the property told ktvu the tenant in the rear unit had been living there since 2010 but in may they stopped paying rent. police say the tenant knew he was being evicted but haven't confirmed if the woman was the victim found inside. the actions of san francisco sheriff ross mirkarimi came under intense scrutiny during the debate for sheriff. he faced off with the challengers. much of the debate focused on mirkarimi. specifically his handling of the sanctuary city policy, the killing of kate steinle and the

gladdater-style fight at the san francisco jail. in his opening statement, he said the jail has been praised by the state. >> i don't think they are making this up. i couldn't pay for this kind of press, especially lately. >> he also addressed the revolution this week that he was driving with a suspended low-pressure system because he failed to report a crash he was involved in last year. he said he thought that matter had been resolved months ago. >> unable to find out why because communication is curtailed, created an environment that's disconnected from its own public. >> during his time in office has been detrimental to the san francisco sheriff's department. i suggest it become about the sheriff and not -- when it becomes about the sheriff and not the department, it's a problem. >> hennessey questioned his handling of the policy. the election is november 3rd. 7:08. a rally is set for 10:00 it

8:01 am
well, good morning to you. happening right now, the search for a woman she fell off the bay bridge into the water below and that search continues at this hour. >> this started after a car cash at 2:00. >> alex savidge, you are near the toll plaza, you've been out there since this morning. drivers reported they saw that woman, alex. >> reporter: yeah, those are the reports the chp got. a couple of 911 calls from drivers in this area and they reported seeing a woman walking along the shoreline in this area where we have been throughout the morning. this is just north of the bay bridge toll plaza, and we have seen many chp officers out here scouring the bushes and the shoreline area here trying to find this missing woman who fell from the eastern span of the bay bridge early this morning. now, let me show you some video. this is the scene a short time ago as we saw the coast guard helicopter by fly our location along the shoreline. the chopper was flying very low
8:02 am
looking along the shore line for this young woman who is still missing. on the ground, there were also chp officers, again, early this morning, they were out with flashlights searching for this woman who was believed to have fallen from the bridge and possibly had made her way to the shoreline. that fall happened after 2:00 this morning and the chp says this woman for some reason climbed the rail along the bike path and then either slipped or let go and fell about 70 to 80 feet down into the water below. that fall came after a single car crash in the eastbound lanes of the bridge. the missing woman was the driver involved in that accident. there were two passengers. two other young women, all three of them are in the early 20s according to the chp. after they got in that single car crash, all of the women got out. two of them climbed over onto the adjacent bike path and as the chp officer who was responding began to work toward the two women often the bike
8:03 am
path, he saw one of those women climb up and over the rail. >> as the officer was about 50 yards away, she began to slip and fall. the officer requested a notification of the coast guard. we got the coast guard to deploy a boat and air for rescue. >> reporter: two other passengers in the car, the two other women who were here with the driver involved in the crash have been detained for questioning. the chp is talking to them trying to figure out what was going on. what this woman's state of mind was, why she decided to climb up on the mail and either jump or potentially fall into the water this morning. again, the chp did get reports that she had made her way to shore a number of drivers in this area spotted a woman walking along the shoreline. we bring you back out here to a live picture. this is the coast guard hadn't ter still up in the air -- had ther still up in the air doing their first search of the morning here and they are right
8:04 am
above the eastern span of the bay bridge still looking along the shoreline trying to see if they can find this missing woman. they've not identified the woman only saying she's in her early 20s. the chp says they have no idea why she decided to climb up over the rail. >> reporter: all right. right now, i'm just looking at -- trying to figure out something here alex to see if any of it traffic is gonna improve. let's take a look at the eastshore freeway. because look at the time here. 65 minutes. that is an incredible time of all of this was easily visible from the cars at the tacoma. people are curious. they want to see what is going on. there was a helicopter, boats, the lanes were mostly open. it's really damaged the commute. it's -- as we speak, it's 70
8:05 am
minutes between the carquinez bridge ald the macarthur maze. that's just horrible. i would not use the bay bridge. in is a look at the traffic. it's almost at a standstill. this has messed up the morning commute. you can think about using the san mateo bridge as an alternate if you have to get into san francisco. that would be a better way to go. if you are looking at the east bay commute, most of it has been slow. look at one last thing about this bridge. 580 itself through the oakland lakeshore area is backed up solid from highway 13 to the bay bridge. so you need to think about going down to the san mateo bridge instead. 8:05. back to steve in the forecast. hello, steve. >> hello, sal. thank you. a little chill this morning. a lot of 40s. thanks for the nfg coming in. cool air mass in place. only really the north bay dealing with fog. there's patchy low clouds around the city. also a little bit over oakland. after that, there's not much. most of the san mateo and santa cruz coast were fog free and on the cool side and even on skyline along skyline, matt,

8:32 am
backup. once you make it on the span, it looks okay. but we have a lot of slow traffic trying to get to the bay bridge. part of it is because. earlier backups here. you can see it's taking almost an hour to drive through the carquinez bridge. someone just tweeted saying it was awful driving through el cerrito heading out to the macarthur maze and to the bay bridge, once you get to the toll plaza, you will see a big backup at the toll plaza trying to get on the bridge. we can look at the toll plaza for you right now from our camera there. it's a little better but still backed up. if you are trying to get into san francisco, i would advise perhaps using b.a.r.t. or doing something else. we're looking at the south bay now. we'll had a lot of minor accidents. nothing major. but there's a lot of minor crashes on 880 and 101, 85, 17, these have been pushed off to the side. we had some slow traffic as you can see all over the south bay. 8:32. back to the desk. >> thank you. a crew with east bay mud

but the new numbers are in. it grew to 16,500 acres. >> thank you for the update. in san francisco, a group of bike riders says it's being fairly untaurkted by police officers. both sounds came together at a community meeting. cyclists staged a protest along the route known as the wiggle. at the beginning of the month, officers cited 204 cyclists during a two-day crackdown t was triggered by complaints with bicyclists in the city. >> bicyclists ignoring red lights, ignoring stop signs. running into people on the roadway. hurting and injuring people. >> totally being singled out here. >> i don't see any cars being hassled for not using turn signals. >> cyclists say officers should be focusing 0 their crackdown on cars, not bicycle itists --
8:36 am
bicyclists. police in the south bay they are warning metal thieves have a new target. in santa clara, 36 water meters have been stolen. it happened twice at the american legion hall near walsh avenue. the meters contain brass and copper. thieves sell that for scrap and replacing those meters cost about $1500 apiece. >> this is cost the utility over $50,000 at this point. it diverts our resources as far as os our crews away from other tasks that they should be doing. >> these thefts are happening in the middle of the night. a flier has been sent out to scrap metal dealers all over the south bay, asking them to be on the lookout. they are offering a reward. 8:36. the city of san jose is offering homeowners a kit to convert their existing lawns
8:37 am
into drought-friendly ones. homeowners will get a kit that includes landscaping materials, drought reskiffant plants but there are some conditions here -- resistant plans. but there are conditions. it has to be a customer of the san jose municipal water system. there must be a working sprivller and controller system. san francisco has created a new showerhead that can reduce the water use by 70%. it works by breaking up water to tinily drooplets and increasing the surface area of the spray. the average person uses up to 20 gallons of water per shower. but they claim they can get the job done with just 6 gallons.

8:37. new this morning, the islamic state terror group says it's killed a croatian hostage in egypt. it killed the 30-year-old oil company worker for his country's participation in the war against the islamic state. the croatian man was kidnapped last month in cairo. there's been a rash of arrests in recent days of americans trying to join islamic state terrorists. over the weekend, 19-year-old jaylen young and her 22-year- old fiance, they were arrested in mississippi trying to board an international flight. according to investigators, miss young is reportedly the daughter of a police officer, told and fbi informant online that she wanted to go to syria to support isis. she was hoping they would be medics helping injured isis fighters. >> isis is offering them a
8:39 am
place to fit into that puzzle. that's attract attorney many people. >> federal investigators arrested three men in new jersey for trying to support isis. hillary clinton's campaign is being dominated by her time when she was secretary of state. >> claudine wong is back in the studio to help us sort it out. >> well, there are three different things happening right now. first, arrefuseing to do it for months -- after refusing it to it for months, she's handed over her server. the inspector general is looking at e-mails and there are thumb drives that contain 30,000 e-mails from her server that are in the hand of the justice department. so let's break all of this down for you. let's talk about that server.
8:40 am
this is the personal e-mail server from her new york home. she has resisted turning it over but yesterday, told her aides to give it to the justice department. she has repeatedly said she did not use it to send or receive any classified information. >> i did not e-mail any classified material to anyone on my e-mail. there is no classified material. i'm confident that i never sent nor received any information that was classified at the time it was sent and received. >> all right. so that brings us to this inspector general. he's been looking at specific e- mails. he said two of the e-mails contained classified information. fox news has reported that the information was related to the cia and an agency that produces satellite images. but this is where it gets confusing when it comes to if clinton did anything procedurally wrong. the state department says the e- mails were not classified when
8:41 am
clinton sent them. they were only classified retroactively. >> this is a subset of a subset. you are talking about a mass of e-mails with potential classified e-mails in them. >> and you are talking about the four years as secretary of state, that's a lot of e-mails. 60,000, in fact. clipton deleted half of those -- clinton deleted half of those because she said they were half of them. and then her attorney was keeping a copy of 30,000 of the work related miles on thumb drives at the his office. well, the fbi was not as comfortable with that. so the a.p. said the thumb drives were given to the justice department. at the end of the day, there's still a lot to figure out. >> all right. thank you. well, from coaching the world series champs to helping needy fells, up next, we'll tell you what bruce bruce bochy and his wife are doing and why

8:46 am
company is already trademarked. google announced the new parent company called alphabet and it was approved by most people. but the german carmaker bmw was surprised that's because bmw already has a company called alphabet. it supplies more than 500,000 cars to corporate customers. bmw is looking at trademark implications here. but likely no legal action will be taken because google doesn't intend to build products or brands under the alphabet name. sal, busy day. >> yes. before we go to the traffic, i want to show you something that might put a smile on your face. i want to show you a picture back to school. nick core hernandez's son is getting ready for school. but she says him getting ready for school is a challenge every morning because he likes to watch us thon the -- to watch us on the news. that's him watching us.
