7:13 am
welcome back. seismologists say yesterday's earthquake, the one we felt, helped them in their development of an early-warning system. developers already know that the further away from the epicenter of the quake that you are, the more helpful a warning will be. yesterday's quake confirmed it. in fact, the head of the berkeley seismology lab says he has the app that's being tested on his own phone. but he was too close to the epicenter to receive an actual warning. >> the app is on my phone. by the time the app went off, the shaking already started. for people in fremont and san jose there could have received a warning of -- they could have received a warning of several seconds. >> dr. allen says that's enough time for you to decide not to step onto an elevator or for a surgeon to decide not to make a

7:16 am
fossilized remains of species. some think it was invented for the series. they really did exist during the ice age but they were smaller than the ones you see on the show. let's check in with sal. helping us get back to work and school. >> that's right. we're looking at highway 4. we'll start there in the east bay. and start with the traffic on the freeway here. you can see it's slow with an accident near bailey road and willow pass road earlier that caused slow traffic. but the traffic on the freeway is just moderately heavy as you drive on 680 it's going to be a little slow as you drive through this area. we're also looking at a commute here at the bay bridge toll plaza where traffic is going to be backing up. although this seems to be an empty spot at the left. still about a 15, 20-minute delay getting up to the bay bridge. we're looking at the south bay now and 85, 280 and 101 are getting crowded. there's still plenty of room. this is not the peak in san jose. but 85 for some reason seems to
7:17 am
be taking center stage with all of that slow traffic. 7:16. today's weather, let's go to steve. cooler, sal. we have a lot more in the way of low clouds and fog. for someone who have been in the 100s for three days in a row. not today unless you are up toward lake county or ukiah, i think that would be -- even vacaville should cool down. plenty of low clouds they lifted. yesterday they were down on the deck. a couple of lows. but not heading toward us yet. the high-pressure system responsible for that is moving off to the east. that's allowing the grip to lessen. so that means the fog can lift and move locally inland in a big way. that will cool us down. 50s and 60s on the temps. they've been stuck all morning long. 59, 61 for most of the santa rosa cooler at 57. noticeable differences on the 24-hour temperature change, anywhere from 1 to 6 degrees cooler. it was 13 degrees cooler at travis about an hour ago. the breeze yesterday, 2 miles an hour. today, 22. that's a big difference.

7:29 am
coast and bay and today we'll continue that theme. had a nice tweet from bubba th tortoise. up in petaluma. yes. when should i expect this el nino monster to rear its ugly head? let's just remember, it does not mean we'll get rain. probably. does not. i wouldn't think anything until after late fall or winter. we have plenty of time to iron things out. there is a lot going on. i will be honest with you. maybe rains from the north earlier than the el nino. plenty out here. a couple of lows spinning around one north of hawaii but so far staying away from us. the system from the pacific northwest kind of starting to dip in. that's allowing the fog to form. slow to recover. some are stuck. and they are noticeably cooler than 24 hours ago. one to seven degrees. at one time, they were 10 to 12. more of a westerly component. that will translate into cooler
7:30 am

7:32 am
information acaccessed -- accessed in that. this is from the get transcript website where people can access filings from previous years. the irs is blatcheing to warn warning -- the irs is planning to warn more warning letters. i talked to one of our colleagues at ktvu who tells me that he had fraudulent rumps filed in his -- returns filed in his name. he told me the real red flag for him was getting a refund check in the mail before he had even filed any returns and that's when he alerted the irs and he's working to clear things up now. he says so far the process has been fairly straightforward. but potentially one of the victims involved here. now, while the irs will be reaching out to all of the tax payers affected by this scheme, there are some things that you can do to protect your identity and make sure nobody is filing fraudulent returns using your personal information and to that end, we've put up some of the warning steins you can look for, a link to an irs website

7:42 am
follow the raiders. >> they can't just keep come back. >> the two teams are rivals in the afc west. that could make scheduling a game hard. so the raiders and chargers have made it clear if they both are allowed to move to los angeles. they would be willing to let the nfl decide if one or both of them should be in another division or even change conferences. this would put the raiders in the nfc west where the 49ers are. speaking of the 49ers, they are reducing beer prices at levi shade yum but it's just -- stadium but it's just down 25 cents down to 10 bucks. bottled water will go down 75 cents to $a. the 49ers are implementing strategies to east complaints about excessive heat at the stadium. there will be new parking policies and more exit lanes to improve the postgame traffic glow. the 49ers will be hosting the dallas cowboys in their second game of the preseason this

had fraudulent returns filed in his name. he's looking to clear situation up now with the irs. he told me that the red frag was getting a refund check in the mail before he had even filed his returns. that's when he alerted the irs to the problem. now, the irs says they will be reaching out to all of the tax payers who have been affected here in this situation. but at the same time, there are many things that you can do to make sure your personal information is not being used to file fraudulent returns. we have put a link to an irbs website with some of the warning signs to look out for. that is up on our home page at ktvu.com. back to you. 8:34. there is a new report showing that police fired more than 600 gunshots during last year's bank rockery in stockton. the one that left a hostage dead. report came from a research group based in washington, d.c. it called the police response excessive. it found that some of the 32
8:35 am
stockton police officers at that scene only fired their weapons because other officers were shooting. it also revealed some. officers opened fire teen though their colleagues were standing right in front of them. >> we've never seen anything like this in law enforcement. really only in the movies did we see things like that. >> two of the suspects were killed ahong with misty -- along with misty holts-singh. she was used as a human shield. she was hit by ten shots fired by the officers. since that incident, her family has sued the police department and that surviving gunman has been charged with murder. it's back to school. back to football for a lot of people but the fear surrounding concussions very real. scary for parents. pam cook is back in the studio with a look at new technology that could make the game be a game chaininger. >> that's -- changer. >>

in the nfl and they deserve better. >> i'm gonna follow the raiders. >> they can't just keep leaving and come back. >> well, the two teams are rivals in the afc west which could maic scheduling games hard. so they've made it clear, if they both are allowed to move to los angeles, they would be willing to let the nfl decide if one or both of them should be in another division or even change conferences. one would put the raiders in the west where the 49ers are. beer is down 25 cents at the stadium from $10. bootleed water will go down 75 cents to $a. the 49ers also say they are implementing strategies to ease complaints. there will be new parking policies and more exit lanes to make it better to leave after

8:45 am
juice are these healthy foods we should be packing in the lunchbox every day? >> not really. some of it is marketing. it's relying on our love for our children and the desire to do the best for them. so something like a smart pop here and -- it's actually got more fat than these chips here and you will see that it says open nature. you will see the packaging with a lot of pictures of the nature of fruits and vegetables is to get to you buy more and to help you feel like you are doing a good job. >> reporter: i have a little boy who will be in first grade this year. everything i've bought here i've seen at snack recess. the kids open up their lunchbox. some take out fruits and vegetables and these bars are all over the bars. so are the capris suns and so are the fruit squeezes. fruit is good but in this form, they don't know what they are eating. >> no, they can't tell.
