8:02 am
a slight component of a westerly breeze. but 50s and 60s. maybe some of those monsoon clouds will roll into the picture tomorrow. but today it's a lot of snipe, low clouds. after that, then sunny and warmer. mild near the coast. getting warmer inland with upper 80s, 90s for some. 70s and 80s around the bay. now for some manly reports on the traffic. >> thank you, steve. i like that deep voice. we do have some problems to talk about. i'm gonna mex them in a molt. we'll start off with the eastshore freeway. i want to take a look at the east shore and see that traffic is going to be busy as you drive from the carquinez bridge to the macarthur maze. you will see some slow traffic there. when you get to the bay bridge toll plaza, you will see some slow traffic as well. southbound 680 has been a mess from concord to walnut creek. several earlier accidents, highway 4 is in on the slow traffic party coming in through
8:03 am
baypoint. that's where all of the slow traffic is. let's go to the bay bridge toll plaza, you will see traffic will be busy as you drive through. i want to mention there is a report of a crash in san francisco at the corner of leavenworth and golden gate. it may involve a police officer. so we're trying to find out more information. but that's a good area for you to avoid as you drive through. i also want to mention that driving on 80 through the vacaville fairfield area has been very slow because of earlier problems. back to the desk. more than a dozen people were forced out of their homes after a fire in san francisco's mission district. >> allie rasmus live at the scene on shodwell. you just talked to firefighters and you have new pictures of the fire at the height to share with us. >> reporter: that's right. well, first off, we still have no word on how this fire started. we talked to the chief a short time ago. he said they are still investigating the cause. in fact, in the last ten
8:04 am
minutes, we've seen the investigators go in through the mainhouse where the fire started. if you pan off to the left, you can see the investigators are making their way through the second home where the fire spread to. the fire started at 11:00 last night in a bedroom on the top floor of this building on the right. this is actually an assisted living home for elderly people with special need. it's called the lorne house. one resident was treated for smoke inhalation but there were no major injuries and everyone living in that home got out safely. now, you can see from the video, a neighbor shared with us that the fire spread from the top floor of -- to the attic and then to the building right next to it. this is san francisco. a lot of the buildings in this residential area, very close together. 15 people were initially displayed by the fire although -- dispraised by the fire. some have -- displaced by the fire. some have rushed to their home. firefighter had the fire outby 12:30 this morning. fires in these types of houses can be a challenge to fight. >> these buildings are very
8:05 am
hold. they have what we call balloon construction. there's no fire stops in the wall. so once it gets in one floor it goes to the attic space. they share a common call, that happened here. it got into the attic space in the other building. once one building goes, a second building will go also. >> reporter: now, a lot of the neighbors in the area last night came out to see the fire and take these pictures that they shared with us. many of them expressed concerns and felt badly for the special needs residents in the home displaced by the fire. >> not gonna have a solid home for -- and that's gonna affect them. this is -- no matter where they go, it won't be the place they've been comfortable with and living with and it's just gonna be a big upheaval for them. >> reporter: back out here live, fire investigators this morning are going through the two homes trying to pinpoint the cause of this fire.
8:06 am
again, they still don't know how it started. but they do know it started in a bedroom on the top floor of this assisted living facility. but investigators are gonna be out here for a while longer. back to you guys. the man accused of killing sergeant scott lunger could enter a plea in court. marc estrada has been charged with murder. lunger was shot and killed during a traffic stop july 22nd. police say estrada suffered a gunshot wound when his partner returned fire. the man accused of killing kate steinle in san francisco is also due in court today. the hearing will determine whether there's enough evidence to try the man with murder. he's already pled not guilty. steinle was shot and killed july 1st. her death sparked a national debate on immigration because lopez sanchez is undocked -- is

8:08 am
well, today everything is grieb the you are seeing a relief rally. they are gonna wait a few weeks to see if it settles. there are a few factors to take in. china, if china settles down a little bit. and also watching oil under 40 bucks. the big picture is that long- term there seems to be a consensus that we'll go to the upside so you don't run and take your money out of the market. but the big picture, they think it's going up, but expect a little volatility. it has not quite settled yet. a 330-point move is still a big move. apple is up 5%. that's a big day on wall street. >> here in the bay area, a lot of people work for technology companies and invest in them and they are certainly dependent on chinese economy for some of their businesses. what are the traders saying about the relationship going forward and the economic
8:09 am
situation over there? >> reporter: well, that's one factor that plays a part. apple sells iphones in china. we saw that pull back. they didn't see the growth they normally would see. but big picture, they still love tech around here. you have north america and all of the other continents other than just worrying about just china. there's still a lot of people who love tech. and we're seeing tech leading the way today. it is the best performing group today and also yesterday where everything sold off, it was among the better groups. it wasn't as bad as energy, for example. so tech is still a favorite. >> all right. thank you, nicole, for the update. >> reporter: thank you. stay with us here at ktvu for continuing coverage on what is happening on the -- on wall street. we'll check in with alex savidge at 8:30 who has been following the stock market and he will share what he has at

people who live in one australian town are assessing the damage left behind by a possible tornado. it formed during a powerful storm that swept across the state this morning. a number of homes have been flooded. some destroyed. in afghanistan, explosions claimed the lives of ten children. a series of explosions on a camp refugee. it's not clear if the explosions were an accident or caused by a militant attack. 8:15. a taker from minnesota was -- teenager was minnesota was killed at a boarding school in somalia. his family thinks he may have been targeted for being american. he was sent to boarding school last december. his family was told five people entered his room in may and beat him to death. the boy's mother said the officials acknowledged the killing but won't provide his
8:16 am
remains. >> he was smart, he was asking questions. because of that, they killed him. >> the family has been working with minnesota senators to put pressure on the somalian government. the city of sacramento is planning a parade to honor the three men who helped stop that train in france. the three men stopped an attacker armed with box cutters, a handgun and assault rifle. the men are childhood friends who grew up in sacramento together. yesterday, they received france's top honor. we heard from sadler's sister. >> i'm so amazed by his act. i don't know what to say. it's such an inspiration to me, though, and my family. >> now, the mayor says details about the parade are still in the works. meantime, security has been increased at train stations across europe, many people in paris say they feel safe

8:18 am
areas for you to avoid, 6th and stevenson and also golden gate and leavenworth. let's take a look at the bay bridge toll plaza getting into san francisco. the traffic is going to be busy as you drive through. gonna see slow traffic as you make it onto the bridge as well. san jose, 280, northbound is improving. southbound 280 a little bit slow getting over to highway 101 getting down to the san jose state exit. 580 livermore, we still have a lot of slow traffic on that commute on 580. it's going to be slow and also slow traffic on 680 getting into the fremont area. 880 is also slow heading down to the area there. please give yourself plenty of extra time as you drive through. let's go to steve in today's forecast. >> thank you. >> we have low cloud and fog. nothing unusual but the coverage is far less. there's already some breaks in that. in fact, it looks sunny. we had that yesterday. but it didn't happen until later in the afternoon. today beginning to retreat
8:19 am
sooner. water temps continue to be very warm. i think that has a lot to do with it. george mccray, he says one thing i've seen this august in the past, we had days with no sun. this year, we always get a burnoff and afternoon sun. i know what he means by that. when you get temperatures, 60, 65, the gog seems to burn -- the fog seems to -- seems to burn off sooner. a decent delta breeze, west. the onshore breeze is still there. 50s and 60s on the temps. brentwood, 56. napa, 57. , 57 palo alto. the tropical clouds here, monsoon clouds coming up are already moving into over las vegas, los angeles, palm springs, southern california and arizona. maybe a few of these tomorrow. but actually what i'm keeping an eye on is a couple of things
8:20 am
going on. higher clouds coming up from the southwest. the system is qum coming out of the gulf of alaska. i love that. but it's coming up from the hawaiian islands. heavy rain has given way to just scattered showers. but the bulk of that cloud cover is getting drawn up by that system right there. and it's making a b-line toward us. i think we go cloudy thursday into friday. eventually this will sweep in. the first system coming down from the north usually arrives later than sooner. it may be delayed. the cloud cover won't but the cooler pattern might be. there will be rain, extreme northern california but probably not until over the weekend. my best opportunity would be on saturday. look at all of the cloud cover streaming over us. by sunday, the system begins to swing through that. that will give us the first feel of a cold front coming through. i'm getting ahead of myself. but there are things brewing here. what's brewing is warm temps. 60s, 70s, 80s to 90s. pretty good jump here on some
8:21 am
of the -- on the temps. temps are above coast and bay. should be in the upper 60s and low 70s. we're seeing warmer conditions. the ocean temps have a lot to do with it. i thig we go clow -- i think we go cloudy to mostly cloudy to the north. for us in the bay area, it might be next tuesday. >> okay. >> microclimates. >> you know, we talked about this earlier. you can get microclimates in one city alone. >> just berkeley. >> right. if you are along the water in particular. >> or up against the hills. people do a lot of things to feel better, right? but what about crying your eyes out? coming up in 30 minutes, the study that may have you -- >> love a good cry. a difficult choice for

8:35 am
the improvements that the airport wants to make. here's what's gonna change -- the new fencing will be 10 feet high. it will be topped with an additional foot of barbed wire. the current fencing has been under scrutiny because in four out of the five security breach, someone trespassed by scaling the fence. a 15-year-old hopped the fence and stowed away in the wheel well of a plane on a flight to hawaii and back in march. a woman was seen running around the south end of the airfield after she jumped the fence. passengers wonder why more isn't done. >> it's something that needs to be addressed. it needs to be taken care of. it seems like you hear a lot about the tsa. there's too many holes or leaks in the system. >> reporter: the area near the stadium is the only area with improved fencing. but the new grant money will raise the fence in the other
8:36 am
areas. airport officials have been working with the safe skies alliance to choose which system is best for san jose. the airplane's goal is to get it done within the next two years. reporting from the san jose airport, janine de la vega, ktvu channel 2 news. it will be the end of the line for paper transfers at muni. they are asking for bids that will print a transfer that includes the exact time the ticket expires. under the current system, the operator has to tear off the ticket. but the company no longer makes the parts for the boxes. uber testing out a new future that gives discounted rides. it's similar to a bus, that means that cars won't go directly to the doors but users would have to set their pickup location along a fixed route.
