7:00 am
good morning everybody. we are live in oakland where an early morning water main break caused a soggy mess. how it to be related to an earthquake earlier this week. continuing to monitor that grassfire burning close to the lawrence livermore lab.
7:01 am
>> it just took off rapidly. >> the obstacles firefighters are facing as they try to get the flames under control. as this as "mornings on 2" continues. 7:00 on this thursday morning. i am gasia mikaelian. >> i am dave clark. >> steve, is this is interesting? >> low cloud deck is big. it's made a huge push inland. three days ago around 104, 105. not today. it will be 25 degrees cooler than that. coast and bay settled in. they are not changing. too much fog, low clouds and warm ocean temps. 60s there. low clouds and fog as far as we can see. a westerly breeze or some component of a west-southwest or northwest. take your pick. it doesn't matter. it's just in place. i don't think it's going anywhere any time soon. so higher elevations 30 to
7:02 am
37-mile-per-hour gusts. 60s or 50s. they will be slow to burn back. low clouds. cooler, breezy inland to down right windy in the hills. 80s now for many. 60s and 70s for others. sal, you have had a dance here from one part of the bay to the next. anything new to report? >> well, we have slow traffic, steve. it's calmed down a little bit, which is nice. let's take a look the east shore freeway and we are looking at interstate 80. one of the bay area's busiest commutes. it is backed up in richmond and el cerrito. a little bit slow in berkeley. 26 minutes. not too bad out to the macarthur maze. when you get to the bay bridge toll plaza traffic is backed up kind of normal, even though we had an earlier crash that didn't affect last commute, which is good. chp did a good job getting it out of the way. 680 slowing down to the walnut creek interchange.
7:03 am
east bay crews are trying figure out if monday's earthquake is to blame for a water main break this morning. brian, are you standing right there in front of that gas station? >> reporter: i am. i know that you are familiar with this area, sal. >> okay. good. >> reporter: it is kind of affecting traffic in one way or another. we will talk about that in a moment. as for the water main break, crews behind me have capped this leak that started just after 4:00 this morning. earlier thousands of gallons water spilled onto the street here. i want go to video now of showing how much water was gushing out of the peak of the water main break. according to officials, at least 3,000 gallons of water was lost in 15 minutes. this water main break happened near santa clara avenue and oakland avenue underneath the 580 overpass. the pipe that broke dates back to 1933. it is a 12-inch cast iron pipe. it remains unclear exactly what caused the break happen. but speaking with east bay mud
7:04 am
officials and crews on the field, they acknowledge monday's earthquake may have played a role in this. these pipes are so old that any ground movement may make them vulnerable to damage. 15 to 25 customers are currently without water service. that damage, speaking of the earthquake from monday, east bay officials say there have been nine pipes that broke following the quake. back on monday several customers in the east bay were without water because of that time. seven water main breaks happened shortly after the 4.0 earthquake mere the hayward fault. that's where most of the water main breaks happened. back out here live, crews have blocked a couple of lanes of repairs. on to macarthur boulevard from 380, there is a lot of mud on the roadway. we have seen at least two or three cars kind of spin out of control just for a short time, if you will. so it hasn't really caused a major problem. chip, if we can go over there
7:05 am
real quick as cars are building up there, you see more mud near that stoplight right there. all that water went towards that area and you see that muddy mess down will. we have seen a couple of cars spin out of control this morning. crews are out here with east bay mud making repairs out here and we will keep you updated on the progress here this morning on "mornings on 2". a crash on interstate 80 in berkeley happened as our camera was rolling. that was actually the third crash there on 80 near the gilman street off-ramp last night. the first crash happened just before 10:00 p.m. it involved two cars and blocked three lanes of westbound 80. then one hour later there was a four-car crash across the median on the eastbound lanes. our photographer was taking video of one of those cars on the road when two other vehicles came by, tried to avoid the car in the road, and got into an
7:06 am
accident of their own. the chp says there were several injuries in these crashes, but they were all minor. time now 7:05. we just received an update on the containment of that fire. the one that threatened a part of the lawrence livermore lab. strong winds, dry grass helped that fire to just explode in size. ktvu's christian cappen, you are there at a roadblock near the fire. what are they saying about containment now? >> reporter: yeah, i just got off the phone with fall fire and they are telling me they believe containment is at 25%. they say 2500 acres burned. right now at the intersection of kroth and tesla. the fire up the road a mile or so. we saw a crew of cal fire firefighters moving into position. the area that we went into, we actually were behind the fire line earlier and the area that we were at, you could see a significant amount of burned area and high winds on the ridge. so certainly that's one of the major concerns. right now we are monitoring the
7:07 am
efforts to contain the tesla fire. this fire started yesterday afternoon off tesla road. with dry and windy conditions the fire grew by leaps and bounds, doubling two hours later. several structures have been destroyed. no reports of any injuries. crews were attacking the fire from the ground and from the air. we have been talking about the windy conditions out here. that can be a serious factor when it comes to spot fires. that is new fires set by the blowing embers from the main fire. >> for both us and local government agencies and cal fire, we have unprecedented conditions that we are dealing with this year. four years of drought. we have extremely dry conditions here. >> reporter: now, again the good news, the fire appears to be around 2,500 acres. it's now at about 25% containment, which we're hearing. that could be another good
7:08 am
indication. we are hoping that the weather cooperates, that there aren't the windy conditions that we saw out here yesterday. we are hearing that the morning briefing for cal fire set to take place in a couple of hours. there are still 150 or socal firefighters on scene here working to contain this fire. we will monitor the progress of the tesla fire and bring you updates through the morning. >> thank you. time is now 7:08. a big wildfire in washington state has claimed the lives of three firefighters. three u.s. forest service firefighters died yesterday battling a fire in the central part of that state. their vehicle crashed. it was consumed by flames killing those three firefighters. four other people were also hurt in that same fire, but we don't know yet if they were involved in the same accident. people who live in the area say the work, the sacrifice of firefighters, it is not unnoticed. >> we went by one of the homes. someone had just put their sprinklers on the house. they left a nice note for firefighters that said, please,
7:09 am
this is just a house. save yourself. be safe. good luck, firefighters. >> this is just one of 100 fires burning right now in seven western states. help has been called in from the u.s. military as well as other countries, including australia and new zealand. 70 8:00. san francisco's d.a. is suing uber. he says the company's background checks aren't extensive enough and that the company is putting convicted criminals behind the wheel. on tuesday he filed a complaint with uber that lists more than two dozen cases investigators have found so far. most of the cases are down in los angeles. however, he says there is no question this is also happening here in the bay area. >> we have come to learn that they have drivers who are convicted sex offenders, thieves, burglers, kidnappers, and a convicted murderer. >> the d.a. says that uber uses ineffective background checks
7:10 am
that don't go back far enough for missed red flags. he says they should use live scan fingerprint checks like taxi drivers. in a statement released by uber the company says it disagrees with accusations the system is inadequate. it also says their checks failed 600 taxi drivers who applied with uber and had past offenses including rape, dwi and assault. we may find out if prosecutors will seek the death penalty in the charleston church shooting massacre. 21-year-old dyllan roof wants to plead guilty to 33 federal charges against him. his lawyer added a plea of not guilty until the prosecution decides whether or not to seek the death penalty. dyllan roof is charged with killing nine people at the historic emmanuel ame church in charlotte, south carolina, back on june 17th. today is the deadline for pretrial motions in that case. also happening today a federal judge is due to hold a
7:11 am
hearing related to the hillary clinton e-mail controversy. a conservative group filed a freedom of information request in 2013 to get records involving a clinton aide and her income. now, this case was nearly over last year when the state department released a few documents. but in the wake of hillary clinton's e-mail controversy the conservative group is asking for clinton e-mails involving that particular aide. the city of san rafael is launching a campaign to promote outdoor dining in the downtown area. the city council approved the proposal which involved business and community recommendations. up to eight metered parking spots on 4th street will be replaced by outdoor dining spots. restaurants are encouraged to create outdoor dining areas that enhance the surroundings. in a tweet posted tuesday, steph curry wrote psa
7:12 am
noticeably following my family's car on the road for nearly 30 miles and tailing me the whole way, that's not the best way to get an autograph. that tweet was posted the same day he appeared on "jimmy kimmel live." during the show he told jimmy kimmel a lot of people recognize him. he joked he was hoping to get someone to pick up his tab tab at a restaurant. >> now you are talking about me and family. garbage trucks. in 20 minutes how they could be used inside san jose to help solve crime. also, thieves caught in the act in the san joaquin valley. what they are after that has a lot of dairy farmers really worried. san rafael bridge. if you are going to marin county, well, you are going to see a little bit of slow traffic coming over the bridge into marin. we will tell you a little bit more about this coming up.
7:13 am

7:14 am
7:15 am
7:14. now developing news from the middle east. isis is claiming responsibility for a massive car bomb that exploded this morning in cairo, egypt, right near a national security building. the blast toppled part of a wall and blew out windows in surrounding buildings. the blast could be felt and heard across the city. they say it was in retaliation after six isis members were executed last year. there are new rules for people walking across the border in tijuana, mexico. people from mexico can get in one line and be waved across the border. others have to show a passport and fill out a form. if they are staying for more
7:16 am
tan a week, they have to pay $20 for a six-month permit. mexican immigration authorities say the changes are, quote, about putting our house in order. time is 7:15. costco is being criticized because of the shrimp it sells. a group of bay area lawyers are suing costco. they claim they knowingly sells farm raised prawns that come from slave labor. this lawsuit claims the wholesale giant is buying prawns from southeast asian producers even though they have known that is a product of pirate fishing and slave labor. >> we know that people are being beaten and killed on thai fishing investments. we know that people are working 20 hours a day without pay and we know, as a result of their labor, products are ending up on shelves of california consumers. >> now, the burlingame lawyers want costco to remove the seafood or put warning labels it alert consumers about how those
7:17 am
prawns were cultivated. costco has not comment and that lawsuit yet. a strange crime here. 7:16. thieves have been targeting dairy farmers in san joaquin county sneaking in and stealing baby cows. six were stolen from three different farms in one night alone. a dark car is seen pulling up to the pens. one man gets out, pulls two calves out, puts the calves in the back of the car and just takes off. >> my thoughts are, they have this figured out. they are watching us and they know when everybody is here. they have a plan. >> the california farm bureau says there has been a recent increase in livestock theft. calves are harder to trace because they are not branded yet. the stolen animals in this case could sell for hundreds of dollars that could be done through a prearranged deal or even, police say, through
7:18 am
craigslist. >> wow. time now 7:17. let's get you moving. sal, the toll plaza, everybody behaving? >> there are a couple of people who are not, dave. funny you ask that question. westbound bay bridge at the toll plaza, lane number one, which is the far left lane, we can take a picture of it now, there is apparently an altercation going on with a big rig driver and a tolltaker. they have called the police. i am not sure what's going on. the left lane is blocked and the police are on the way. chp is on the way to see what's going on here. but traffic is very slow and, you know, hopefully these two parties will get their little disagreement sorted out so the rest of us can get to work. that's what we're hoping for, right? okay. good. let's move along and take a look at the san mateo bridge. westbound 92 out to the high-rise no major problems over to 101. it's going to be a little bit busy. i want to show you some maps. southbound 680 concord to walnut creek slow traffic. slow traffic bay point to
7:19 am
concord on highway 4 westbound. on vasco road it's slower this morning because of an earlier crash near los vakacos. let's go to steve. >> thanks. on the 6 a.m. observation, everybody in the bay area says either cloudy or mostly cloudy and that's because we have a large fog bank out will. only the most inland areas not dealing with any of that low clouds. you probably have a west breeze or you can feel the cooler continues. it's going to continue to cool down inland. i think today probably tough to much cooler than this. plenty of clouds out in the pacific. even though the ocean temps are warm, 61 to 66, that keeps the coastal locations on the warmer side. the fog has made it out. there are low clouds out to livermore. that helps. so firefighters 27 gusts up to 37. it's out of the west-southwest. that's good. we will take a sea breeze any time. humidity 94% and 50s on the temps. so higher humidity, cooler
7:20 am
temps, that's a good thing. but the wind, again, gusts to 37. a little tough. at least we have a cooler pattern. livermore airport west at eight. hayward west-southwest. it's in place. west at napa, novato, concord west-southwest. 50s and 60s on the temps. warm ocean temps mean those temps don't get below 60 or of 61 degrees. a couple lows out in the pacific. the system digs into the pacific northwest and two typhoons. this one will go near japan over the next five, seven days. then it might miss them. that's the good news. but this is a tremendous amount of energy that is moving into colder water, falls apart and heads back across the specific. ghani expected to head towards japan. both of these will impact in the
7:21 am
next ten to 14 days. low clouds. cooler, breezy for inland temps. out of the 100s. 80s for many or low-to-mid 90s. even out of the 9s for anitoch, brentwood, oakley. 70s and 80s. very cool compared to three days ago. i don't see any change here. the extended outlook shows signs of a cool pattern. we talked about it yesterday. all the signs of maybe early signs of fall. >> yeah. >> many responses, and i appreciate that. some really interesting, you know. the apple is coming in a month early. everything else along with that. japanese maples and redwood trees. so it seems like things are way ahead of schedule. >> thank you, steve. you may think you are ready for the next big earthquake. however, we put that to the test and you may find out you're wrong. watch. >> do you actually eat the stuff on a regular basis? >> no. >> no, i don't eat spam. see the lessons i learned the hard way when we invited a red cross volunteer to come through
7:22 am
my house and go through my earthquake kit at home. the kayak started moving back and forth. >> a terrifying close encounter off the coast of santa barbara. why that man says he is lucky to be alive.

7:26 am

7:29 am

7:30 am
terry, stop! it's quite alright... you know what? we want to make a deal with you. we're twins, so could you give us two for the price of one? come on, give us a deal. look at how old i am. do you come here often? he works here, terry! you work here, right? yes... ok let's get to the point. we're going to take the deal. get a $1000 volkswagen reward card on select 2015 jetta models. or lease a 2015 jetta s for $139 a month after a $1000 volkswagen bonus. 7:30. good morning to you. garbage trucks of course used to pick up trash, but in san jose they may soon be doubling up to be essentially an extra set of eyes for police. in two minutes, ktvu's will
7:31 am
tell you about this plan. i am gasia mikaelian. >> good morning. i am dave clark. let's talk about your weather and traffic as you head out the door. it should feel pretty good. >> it's pretty cool. cloudy. that will help the firefighters. higher humidity. i know the breeze sometimes gusting to 25 to 30 miles per hour doesn't help. it's a west wind. low clouds burning back. it's a cooler pattern. the inland temps have taken a plunge since monday's 104. today upper 70s and low 80s. good news for the firefighters statewide as a cooler pattern settles in. starting off with 90% humidity or 80%. the breeze will be there. the highs in the low 80s around livermore. low-to-mid 80s at best. low cloud deck as far as the eye can see out in the pacific and a west wind at eight. most locations have a westerly component. low clouds for almost everybody here. 60s on the temps. everyone is really close here. a little bit of a southeast
7:32 am
breeze towards san jose. 65. but low clouds from crescent city to san diego. plenty of low clouds in place. cooler, breezy inland. i think today we level it off here. 80s on the temps. 60s and 70s for others. a confrontation, sal? is that what you said earlier? yeah, there is some shenanigans going on at the bay bridge. they called chp at the toll plaza in either the far left or far right lane. tolltaker and a big rig driver into some sort of argument. chp is trying to sort it out. the problem with this, of course, whatever lane they are arguing is taking away from the commute and it's going to make it just a little bit slower. it doesn't sound like something super serious. bay bridge backed up for 20 to 25-minute delay. the san mateo bridge. i am sorry. highway 101 commute to the san mateo bridge looks good. the traffic is just moderately heavy. now, i spoke about the san mateo bridge. let's talk about that. san mateo and dumbarton bridge
7:33 am
crossings a little bit of slow traffic over to foster city. dumbarton bridge, we can zoom in, a normal commute. it is slow when you get over to east palo alto and 101 is going to be slow when you get there. 7:37. let's go back to the desk. the city of san jose considering a very unusual new crime fighting vehicle. garbage trucks. the city wants to scan more streets looking for stolen cars, and that's getting a mixed reaction. >> reporter: yeah, it really is somewhat of an unprecedented idea given no other city in the bay area is doing this. we have talked to some folks this morning and it really is a mixed reaction. you either like it or you don't. and we reported several times the police department here is dealing with low staffing levels and the city thinks this is another way to work smarter. the mayor, city council members, several city council members back this up. private garbage trucks roam the streets every week. so this is just an extra set of
7:34 am
eyes to have these readers installed on the front of the trucks. the info would be sent to the portland and help the police with reports of stolen cars and check to see if any of the cars were involved in any other serious crimes. about a handful of san jose police cars use these readers. people we spoke with this morning see the good and the bad. one man is concerned about the cost. >> given everything that's going on lately here, i think it's a great idea. i really do. criminals, stuff like that, they are roaming around out there. the cops can't do a good job, you know what i mean, on their own and need extra help. >> we are going to spend money on outfitting all the garbage trucks. why do it? i just thought of it. it's a private company. why are we giving them that power? >> reporter: civil rights groups, including the aclu, are against the idea saying this plan raises concerns given there are still questions surrounding how this information is collected, stored, and analyzed. once again this is still in the
7:35 am
initial stages. this has just been proposed. the city plans to work with the aclu, talk to them about their concerns, about the legality issues. we know as of right now at least one private garbage truck company here in san jose is on board. dave. >> all right, as knit smith. thank you. also in san jose, new fallout from monday's deadly officer-involved shooting. the city's recently retired independent auditor filed a complaint against the police saying that raises several red flags. the homicide suspect was reaching for his waistband when the officer shot and killed him. now the department says that was not the case. the suspect was unarmed and shot in the back as he ran from officers. now, police say they believe the suspect was armed and prepared to shoot at them. in an unusual move oakland police invited reporters to see the body police camera video from the officers who were involved in last week's deadly
7:36 am
shooting of an armed robbery suspect. at this point police haven't released the video to the public. it happened last wednesday at 27th and mlk. christina rendon watched the video but wasn't allowed to record it. she saw three police officers running and yelling at a man identified as nate wilkes to drop his gun. she says wilkes turned around and came back towards the officers watching the gun in their direction. that's when all three officers fired several shots. >> the short answer is, if somebody is pointing firearm at you, using a less lethal option is not the first thing that comes to mind. >> the decision to play the video to reporters was misinformation on social media and by protesters. the family of nate wilkes saw the video. the chief says the body camera videos will be released to the public when the investigation is complete. and the police group says there is a recent for
7:37 am
officer-involved shootings. they say officers don't receive enough training in de- escalating conflict. the group says some of the recent shootings have been justified, but that officers are missing opportunities to slow things down. maybe call in additional resources. the group says some officers with the best of intentions go into a situation and resolve it as quickly as they can. our time now 7:36. president obama will fly to new orleans next week. he will meet with residents as he marks the tenth anniversary of hurricane katrina. that powerful storm hit louisiana august 29th, 2005. it caused major damage to the gulf coast, including a storm surge that flooded large parts of new orleans. almost 2,000 people died because of that storm. the white house says the president will meet with the mayor of new orleans and also with residents who spent the past decade rebuilding their lives. some parts of california are sinking at an alarming rate due to our historic drought. new research by nasa finds some places are sinking nearly two
7:38 am
inches a month. the worst is happening in four areas, arbuckle in colusa county, near -- officials blame increased groundwater pumping by farmers and others. it costs millions of dollars of damage. >> it's a long-term problem that's really kind of insidious. i think what's happening now is some people are going to implement it faster. so where you see problems, they are going to implement it more quickly. >> last year governor brown and other lawmakers passed a law to regulate groundwater pumping, but it won't be fully implemented until the year 2040. happening right now a two-day strike underway at two bay area nursing homes. now, the workers are at the san francisco nursing center and the san rafael healthcare and wellness center. nursing assistants, housekeepers and food service workers have walked off the job. these centers are and by different companies, but workers
7:39 am
are upset about changes it to -- to their healthcare plans. community leaders are expected to join the picket lines. they will be speaking at rallies at noontime today. a fisherman is talking about his very close encounter with a large shark. connor lyon was sitting in a kayak fishing off the shore when he felt something slam into the kayak. >> it didn't just stop after that initial slam. the kayak then started kind of moving back and forth at which point i was seeing a lot of whitewater and splashing. >> that's when lyon saw the shark's heady merge from the water with the front of the kayak in its mouth. his friends in a nearby boat came to help. he was pulled on board. we he was back on shore he called what happened one of the best experiences of his life. >> so awesome, you know? just like completely in vain. i couldn't believe that i had just come face to face with the
7:40 am
apex predator and now i am sitting on a boat 100% safe. >> i can't imagine the adrenaline. lyon measured the bite marks on the kayak and learned the shark's jaw was about 18 inches wide. he says he is pretty is sure the shark that attacked him was a great white. 7:39. earlier we told you about the legal trouble surrounding uber and the city of san francisco. it doesn't seem to deter them from boast being its progress. and a statement from uber on how it's doing in our area and which agency it's working with to make it happen. monday's earthquake reminder to be ready for the best one. let's see how prepared i really am if a big earthquake were to hit today. we are looking at a commute here, i would say it's okay. it gets a b-plus here in walnut creek, lafayette up to the tunnel. we will tell you a little bit more about this commute coming
7:41 am
up. a very hot weekend and on monday we've gone to a big fog bank and significantly cooler temperatures inland today. 0, 25 degrees from where they were. we will show you those coming up. mmm yoplait! it's snack time! oh, look! yoplait original now has 25% less sugar. time to taste it. how is it? it tastes good! congratulations yoplait! you did it! yoplait!

7:47 am
a good look. >> this is our earthquake stash. it is a very impressive stash of food. there are a couple of questions. do you actually eat this stuff on a regular basis? >> reporter: no. >> so that's the biggest mistake that people often make. they pack their emergency kits with food that they don't ordinarily eat. and when the disaster happens and they see what is available to them to eat and they don't want to eat it. does your family eat this had stuff on a regular basis? if they don't, you are not going to be able to get your -- in the time of stress. if they don't like spam now, they are the not going to try it then. >> reporter: the water wise, for the four of us we have these. >> we recommend one gallon of drinkable water per person per day. and that's not counting any sort of water you need to wash something out, wash your hands or wash your pots. from the first glance thinking there are four people in here and at least three days and you

filming a different accident. rush to fix a water break in oakland. the possible connection to the earthquake we had on monday. this is ktvu "mornings on 2". we are following developments the out of livermore this morning. a fast moving grassfire there doubled in size just hours after it was discovered. in less than five minutes we will bring back christian captain. we have lots of news this morning. your forecast and your commute. >> right. weather-wise, it's not as hot as it was a few days ago. let's go to steve. >> i hope christian says the firefighters have a better handle on it. the cooler temps, i'm hoping some fog -- that's what's happened. the wind is there, but there have been gusts to 37 at the altamont pass. the humidity is higher. low clouds far inland from locations that couldn't find fog a couple days ago. it's there now and it's going
8:02 am
to be slow to burn off. cool pattern. but for the fire, instead of the 100s and 90s, 83 maybe at best today. that forecast high. the wind is kind of crazy. it's been out of the west-southwest. low clouds, fog, and the fog machine is rolling right along west at nine at livermore airport. there is a west breeze just about everywhere you go or close to it. 50s, 60s on the temps. the fog bank is giving us cloudy to mostly cloudy skies. it's going to be on the cooler side today. 80s, 70s, and 60s. sal, you have all sorts of activity this morning? anything new? >> we have slow traffic and we have, steve, an early morning water main break that created quite a mess near 580. this is ktvu's brian florrers who is near the scene. i know that street. it could cause some traffic problems, right? >> reporter: yeah. you know, it is starting to see
8:03 am
some backup traffic over to my right from the off-ramp. east bay mud crew person is putting up a sign closing the right lane from that off-ramp. there are more crews making their way to this earlier water main break from 4 a.m. but as we spoke about earlier this morning, thousands of gallons of water spilled onto the street here. i want to go to video showing how much water was gushing out of the peak of this water main break. according to officials with east bay mud, 3,000 gallons of water was lost in 15 minutes. it happened near santa clara avenue and oakland avenue underneath the overpass here. the pipe that broke dates back to 1933. it was a 12-inch cast iron pipe. now it remains unclear what caused the break to happen. speaking with east bay mud officials this morning and crews in the field they acknowledge that monday's earthquake may have played a role in this. they say that these pipes are so old that really any ground movement could make them vulnerable to damage.
8:04 am
an estimated 15 to 25 customers are without water service right now. and speaking of the earthquake damage, we saw that from the earthquake on monday. east bay mud officials say nine pipes broke following the quake on monday. several customers, especially in the east bay, were without water because at the time seven water main breaks happened after that 4.0 earthquake on the hayward fault and that's where most of the breaks happened. now, as we take it back out here live, crews have blocked off at least a couple of lanes. this is oakland avenue as you are seeing right here. they say repairs could last well into the afternoon. what they are doing right now is they have to mark into the roadway where the other utilities could be affected. this is not just an east bay mud issue. there are several utilities they need to mark. so that's the first step before they go in there and repair the pipeline that broke. so this repair work could last well into the afternoon, sal. back to you. >> that's right. and you know the people who are coming from downtown oakland on
8:05 am
oakland avenue will also be in slow traffic. thanks, brian, for that report. let's go out and take a look at some other issues in the commute this morning. a look at the bay bridge toll plaza. we had an earlier motorcycle accident. a couple other incidents that have made the traffic slower than usual. a 25 to 30-minute delay. nothing major going on right now. you will be waiting a little while before you make it onto the bridge. southbound 101 at hillsdale clearing a crash there. and also on 92 approaching 101. 280 is a good alternate route. on the east bay 580 is busy on the altamonte pass and live more. vasco as well. 880 is slow after 92. the heaviest part into fremont. 8:05. this is a look at 101 in san jose. stop-and-go traffic from the capitol expressway to mountain view in pockets. back to the desk. >> sal, new this morning we

8:07 am
the carter center at emory university in atlanta because of his treatment. he has kept busy, as you know, working on global worldwide issues involving health and democratic elections. he has been extremely busy. but now he has to cut back as his treatment begins. back at home we are following developing news in our area in eastern alameda county where firefighters trying get a hold of a grassfire. >> you remember christian captain told us an hour ago the containment went from 5% to 25% this morning. let's bring christian back in. christian, we are talking about good progress by crews? >> reporter: absolutely. things seem to be progressing in the right direction. i got off the with cal fire. confirmed for me, like you said, the containment to 25% this morning. still at 2,500 acres. that point not a lot of growth in that fire overnight. that's clearly the direction they want to see things go.
8:08 am
just a couple of minutes ago we were able to drive behind the fire lines. we drove up two miles to see the latest firing efforts. we did not see any active fire. good news that they might be getting the upper hand here. consistency were windy on the ridge line. we didn't see any blowing embers. those both definitely good signs. that fire started yesterday afternoon off tesla road in eastern alameda county. with the dry, windy conditions out here that fire grew by leaps and bounds doubling in size within two hours of crews responding, and doubling again two hours later. several structures have been destroyed. in reports of injuries. last night fire crews attacked the fire from the ground and air. we could see signs of airdrops on the fire line this morning. we have been talking about the windy conditions out here. that can be a serious factor when it comes to spot fires. that is, new fires set by the blowing embers from the main fire. >> we had the fire over on tesla road and then it spotted on the
8:09 am
other side of the road. so we had the main body of fire that we had to deal with and additional spot fires going on the other side of the road. so it has been quite challenging. >> reporter: as we understand the fire briefing may be getting started right about now. that is a strategy session for cal fire to plan out their attack for today. we will try to get some updates from that and figure out what's going to happen out here with the tesla fire. at this point the tesla road appears to be 25% contained and 2,500 acres. >> christian, we will keep checking with you. thank you. 8:09. take a look at something and also listen. a crash last night interstate 80 in berkeley. ktvu's cameras caught it as it happened. now, that's wild. that was the third crash on 80 near the gilman street off-ramp last night. the first happened just before
8:10 am
10:00 p.m. it involved two cars. it blocked three lanes of westbound 80. an hour later there was a four-car crash in the eastbound lanes. our photographer was shooting video of one of the cars on the road when two other vehicles came by, tried to avoid the car, and they crashed. the chp says there were several injuries, but all of them were minor. san francisco's d.a. george clooney gascon is suing uber. he says the company's background checks aren't extensive enough. he filed a complaint with uber that lists more than two dozen cases investigators have found so far. most of them are in los angeles. gascon says there is no question it's also happening here in the bay area. >> we have come to learn that they have drivers who are convicted sex offenders, identity thieves, burglers, kidnappers, and a convicted murderer. >> gascon says that uber uses
8:11 am
ineffective background checks that don't go back far enough and miss red flags. in a statement released by uber the company says it's just a an accusation. they say their checks failed 600 taxi drivers who applied with uber including past offenses including rape, dui and assault. uber says they are improving experiences for caltrain drivers. in july they say 80,000 uber trips started or ended within 100-meters of the caltrain station. they say they used to be a -- it used to be hassle to find parking and to leave your car there, but now thanks to uber there are less cars on the caltrain parking lots, which make a smoother experience. a help wanted sign up at the san francisco police department. at 8:30 the group that is underrepresented within san

8:22 am
the wind picks up. at least it's a west wind and not a north or east as we had on sunday, monday. 70s, 80s for many. way below average. near average for coast and bay even with all that fog because the water temps are so warm. so quiet going into the week. >> i thought the water temperature was cooling a little bit. >> 61 to 66. that's very warm. >> still too cold for me, i remember 49, 51, 52. you are not seeing that right now. >> thank you. time is 8:28. the earthquake got a lot of us thinking about being prepared for the big one. coming up in our second half hour we will have a red cross volunteer go through my house, greed my preparations and look for hazards in case a strong earthquake strikes in the further. isis claiming responsibility for another explosion. had time in egypt. the motive behind the bombing next.

8:25. today two americans accused of supporting is isis are expected in court. they are expected to enter pleas after being accused of plotting attacks in the new york city area. now, they were arrested back in june after officials say salah researching bomb making devices i don't know and tweeted out support of isis. new york officials say the
8:26 am
other man stabbed a fbi agent. isis is claiming responsibility for a car bombing in egypt. you see it blew out windows. 29 people were hurt. the blast could be heard and felt all across the city. isis says it was in retaliation after six isis members were executed for a terror attack in egypt last year. a science museum in paris caught fire this morning. it broke out in a section of the museum under construction. now, it raged on for hours prompting concerns the flames could spread to nearby exhibit halls. even the imax theater there. the firefighters stopped the blaze before it caused any more damage. two firefighters were hurt trying to put out that fire. an investigation into a bombing in thailand is leading to more questions this morning. monday's bombing at a shrine killed at least 20 people and injured more than 120 others. the government says the attack probably did not involve international terrorists.

8:31 am

welcome back to "mornings on 2". we are thinking about earthquakes after the one we had this week. it's on a lot of people's mind. that quake on monday. this coming monday is one year since the quake on napa. >> you saw the red cross evaluate my earthquake stash at home. food, water, supplies like that. now lets go inside the house for some lessons in safety during an earthquake and again here going to see my first instinct turned out to be wrong. >> growing up in the bay area we were taught to get under a doorway. but you are saying that's not the case any more? >> i don't know if that has ever been the case. the doorways are not the safest place to be. >> reporter: she says doors are cut out. can't hold any weight. >> get into the space between these two windows as close to the wall as i can and make

myself as small as i can and curl my head towards my knees and cover my head and neck. >> reporter: crow says the dining table can be the perfect place to take cover. >> of course, you always want to teach your family to drop, cover, and hold on. so anything is happening, you definitely want to get away from the fireplace, hide from the chandelier, and you go under the table. >> reporter: i got points for the museum puppy holding down decorative vases. all the other stuff has to go. >> anything that's not bolted or secured to the wall or to the surface will become flying objects. >> reporter: like that painting? >> exactly. like your phone right now, if you forgot that it was here, it would become a flying object. the crayons right there will become flying objects. and then they become hazards on two levels. they ask injure you while they are flying. the other thing is that they will break on the floor or be
8:46 am
scattered on the floor. if you have a habit of walking in flip-flops or barefoot, you have actually a large chance of getting injured just simply by walking through your house. >> reporter: brick fireplaces can be dangerous. what should we do when it hits? >> i would get away, as far away from the brick, from the fireplace as possible. again the table is your good defense. one of the things that you are concerned with is that the brick will crumble and it also may become that flying object and brick is very heavy. >> reporter: in the end i asked crow to grade me. >> i would give your overall household preparedness a grade of b. it's a great effort. it's a really great effort. b. and i would say you need to do a little bit of studying. the most common mistake is people don't take preece seriously.
