7:00 am
but it's cold out there. no doubt about it. the higher clouds playing into the forecast today a lot more so than yesterday when it was sunny and breezy. the higher clouds really are going to give us a mostly cloudy, some filtered sunshine as we committed. spilling over the ridge of high pressure. starting off though some frost. again, most east than south and north. the advisory is out to the north until 8:00. high clouds coming in. ice, ice baby before. moraga has frost on the roofs. bring on winter. be careful what you wish for. it could be cold around here. san ramon is in there. napa airport went from 35 to 40. and santa rosa 39. there are a lot 30s on the peninsula and the santa cruz mountains as well. antioch briefly touched 39.
7:01 am
danville and now blackhawk as well all in the 30s. the higher clouds stream in right there and giving us a mostly cloudy day. a cold morning with the cloud cover. it could be worse. there is still a breeze around. a mix of sun and clouds and 60s on the temps. sal, 7:01. anything popping up on your screens or what. >> we have a newish crash at hayward. that crash has traffic backed up into union cities. we have a couple of different accidents on the stretch. traffic northbound which usually isn't that bad is going to be slow. watch for slow traffic as well near marina boulevard. somebody also slow from 238 as you drive into fremont. most of that way will be below the speed limit as you can see by looking at red on the maps that indicates stop and go traffic. i want to show you the traffic
7:02 am
at the total plaza backed up four 25 to 30 minutes on the span. if you're driving on 237, it's slowing right near 880 out to sunnyvale. it's 7:01. back to the desk. >> emotions boiled over at alameda city hall about a hear -- at a hearing about rent increases. here is video of police taking down a man outside of council chambers. the man is in police custody. his face down to the floor. ktvu's allie rasmus has what led up to the scuffle. >> reporter: there were two that happened at the meeting last night. one was caught on cell phone video that you see that was on youtube. take a look. >> reporter: now, in the video you can see police pinning down and handcuffing one of the protesters. his face was cut during the arrest, causing him to bleed on
7:03 am
the floor. police say this man had tried to force his way inside chambers and when they tried to stop him, he pushed one of the officers. another protester had tried to push open the doors of the chambers and injured the assistant city manager trying to keep the doors closed because they were packed at capacity. both of the men were arrested for battery. all of this took place as the alameda city council was voting on a moratorium of rent increases. there was apparently no more space for the members of the tenants group to go inside and voice their concerns. that led to a tense atmosphere outside of council chambers. >> and after 25 landlords spoke and only four renters, people began chanting in the hallway. they finally said i'm not being in a cattle car alone without
7:04 am
being able to see anything. and they came out and they were chanting. >> in the aftermath we will take a look at the video from the council chambers, you know, cell phone videos that were taken last night and we will do a full review. for the criminal charges and for the aspect of the use of force. which is a routine for us. every time there's a use of force, we do a full review. >> reporter: and as you heard, chief paulrary explaining that is commonplace any time that anything like this happens. he told me over the phone that after seeing some of the video initially he does not believe that his officers acted inappropriately. the alameda city councilly did end up voting and approving the 65-day moratorium on rent increases above 8%. but it was after a lot of the commotion that you saw on the video this morning. >> allie, i can't remember the last time that a meeting like that took that kind of turn.
7:05 am
>> it was an unusual meeting to say the least. one thing we're waiting to get. the city council regularly take video of the council meetings. we looked online and they don't have video of the meeting on the website yet. i'm told that that council meeting video might show that first fight when the first person tried to get inside and he was knocked over. >> we might be able to see that. >> we might. >> thank you, allie. >> new developments this morning about the stabbing attack yesterday morning on the campus of uc merced. the merced sun newspaper is reporting that the suspect was from here in the bay area. they have identified him as 18- year-old mohammed of santa clara. the paper says he was a freshman at the university. he turned 18 years old in the october. but the sun star is reporting that investigators still don't know a motive for the attack. investigators say the suspect
7:06 am
walked no a second floor classroom yesterday, stabbed a student with an 8 to 10-inch knife and then stabbed a construction worker who came into the class apparently breaking up a fight between students, as he thought. then the suspect went back outside and stabbed two more people before police shot and killed him. one parent trying to comfort his daughter last night was at a loss for words. >> i was shocked. really shocked. you know. and just -- i didn't have words. i couldn't find the words to say when she called me about it and said oh my god. >> students and parents went back to the campus last night. they were consoling each other. now, a individual i will is planned for -- vigil is planned for the victims. all four victims are expected to recover. contra costa authorities are vehicling a suspicious
7:07 am
house fire in the bay. explosions were heard just before 9:30. east contra costa country fire departments got there right after the fire. the investigation continues. the time is 7:07. people have been lining up for hours in union square in san francisco hoping to get their hands on a designer label skies at a bargain price. alex savage is there and the wait is almost over, isn't it. >> reporter: it certainly is, gasia. good morning to you. there has been an incredible buzz building around this clothing launch. everybody anxious to get their hands on pieces from high end french designer balmon. the label collaborated with h&m to create a special clothing line. it goes on sale at 8:00 this morning on this store on powell near union square and all other stores across the country and
7:08 am
around the world. a couple hundred people in line at this store this morning. normally it is expensive. today it will be affordable. much cheaper than usually. the first person to get in line tells me she got here 9:00 yesterday morning. >> shannon johnson. >> yes. >> from tracy. >> i came from tracy. >> how has the wait been. >> it's been good. entertaining. >> reporter: i'm sure. >> yes. >> reporter: is this worth it, shannon? >> absolutely. i would stay a couple of days if i had to. it's very much worth it. you're getting a high end clothing line for a little bit of nothing. it's absolutely worth it. >> you must be shopping for all of your friends and family, right. >> no. my cousin is holding it down in l.a. she is first in line. i'm first in san francisco. so i'm shopping all for me. >> all for you. you're going to be the best dressed woman in tracy. >> i'm going to try. i'm going to try. >> reporter: i love that. >> thank you. >> reporter: have you done
7:09 am
anything like this before. >> yes, absolutely. all the time. wherever there's a good deal, that's where i'm trying to be. >> so you're keeping all this stuff. i've heard some chatter online that a lot of people will resell the stuff on ebay. you're keeping it all. >> every last piece i'm picking up i'm keeping, i'm wearing it for me. >> reporter: one hour left for shannon. and the rest of the folks here. shannon and everybody else in line only gets 15 minutes inside this special balmon collection area inside the h&m store. i think i botched that pronunciation again. i have been working on it. it's 15 minutes. so you have to shop like you mean t you have to know what you want and move in there quickly and get it. >> right. and alex, i have heard of people grabbing whatever they can and once the transactions are over, then we start trading because maybe you grabbed something that i couldn't get. that could be a secondary -- >> reporter: yeah. like the secondary market, i think.
7:10 am
i think that's going to happen. i think it will be a frenzy if you will. so you pick out all this stuff. maybe you don't get the right sizes. maybe somebody else is a medium. you can trade with them. things could get interesting this morning. we will be here for all of the fun. >> okay. however you say it, we will check in with you. >> reporter: someone online sent me a pronunciation online, a video online. i've been practicing. >> okay. thank you. thank you, alex. happening now, we know that nurses at marine general are walking off the job, planning a 12-hour strike for workplace safety problems. the demands include more staffing and more breaks, hiring local nurses and more equipment to lift and turn their patients. they say that's something that can injure the nurses. about 500 nurses work at marine general. what you see here are live pictures of people on the picket lines carrying signs. this is the very beginning of
7:11 am
this strike. faculty members at the 23 campuses in the cal state system voted overwhelmingly. 94% voted to authorize the strike if they are unable to reach a salary negotiation agreement. they want a bum many for lower paid faculty members. csu is offering a 2% raise but is committed to reaching a negotiated agreement. the union said it wouldn't strike before january of next year. and fast food workers are planning their largest nationwide strike yet. organizers who pushed for a minimum wage of $15 an hour want to use their political power to affect the 2016 race for the white house. the group which calls itself fight for $15 says it will stage protests in 270 cities next tuesday. that's exactly one year before the election. the workers hope to convince
7:12 am
their coworkers to register and vote in the presidential election. a recent poll shows 70% of those not currently registered say they would be more likely to vote if a presidential candidate supported a $15 minimum wage. our time is 7:12. two 12-year-old boys recovering from serious injuries after being hit by an suv yesterday. what we have learned about the driver being accused of dui. the latest developments around the plane crash in egypt. officials release what may have brought the plane down. a little bit of a grind here continuing into the west valley. why some people may be avoiding northbound 101. we can't avoid the cold temps and the higher clouds. they will play into the forecast today and changes for the weekend. more coming up on that next.

7:15 am
>> welcome back to mornings on 2. it's 7:15. more indications this morning that a terrorist attack may have caused that crash of the russian plane in egypt last weekend. england's prime minister says it's more likely than not that a bomb brought down the jet packed with 224 people. engrand also announced that egypt must have tougher long- term measures at the airports before british planes will fly to the peninsula. we have more from doug in washington. >> reporter: u.s. officials are looking not just at the physical evidence collected from the crash site but intercepted communications that seem to indicate that isis may have played a role in this. as investigators continue to document the crash site and russian families mourn the loss
7:16 am
of 224 people, a startling acknowledge from the british government. >> we have concluded that there is a significant possibility that that crash was caused by an explosive device on board the aircraft. >> reporter: u.s. officials say they believe that an isis affiliate played a part in this. british tourists are being advised to stay clear of the city where the plane departed. the evidence ecoverred from the scene, including the black box flight recorders will be definitive if places of explosives are found. >> they can literally find out where it was made, by whom and when. so we can find out exactly what happened. >> reporter: the white house in the meantime trying to reassure u.s. travelers, pointing out that u.s. carriers do not fly into city where the security risks are well known. >> those kind of flights are not regularly scheduled between the u.s. the situation is just different. >> reporter: looking forward, if isis did play a role, all
7:17 am
eyes will turn to russian president putin who was already carrying out attacks on isis targets in syria. >> if it turns out that isis is responsible for downing this plane, that is the single biggest mistake they have ever made. because putin now will retaliate. >> reporter: u.s. officials also say that a satellite picked up a heat signature in this area just before the plane went down that could be consistent with a bomb or some other kind of explosion on board the plane. in washington, doug luzater, fox news. >> investigators in louisiana will be meeting with the city marshalls that fired on a car during a chase, killing a 6- year-old inside. they were chasing the cardiff especially by chris who they tried to pull over for an arrest warrant. he got caught in a dead end and tried to back into the cruiser and marshalls opened fire. his 6-year-old son in a
7:18 am
passenger seat in the car got caught in the line of fire. at this point it's unclear if they knew the little boy was in the car. hillary clinton continues her bay area fundraising swing today with an appearance at a winery in st. helena. want to show you video from yesterday. this was part of the fundraising luncheon that she attended at a home in sacramento. after that she was here in the bay area for a fundraiser in los altos hills. california has been very good to hillary clinton's campaign. >> she has so far, not counting today, raised 13 and a half million dollars in california. that is six times the individual amounts raised by bernie sanders, by marco rubio and jeb bush. >> on this current fundraising trip, mrs. clinton has been shuffling back and forth between northern and southern california. she begins in los angeles this
7:19 am
morning at the home of rob ryaner. coming up on 7:19. let's get you out the door. traffic has been rough all morning all week. >> yeah. i think monday was the worse day, gasia. >> all of the rain. >> but the other days have not been a walk in the park, if you want to use something. please don't use that one. that is actually kind of old. let's take a look at 80 westbound. we have very slow traffic here to the macarthur maze. 46 minutes. although when it was raining, it was 90 minutes so almost twice as bad. the standard commute when there is no traffic is about 20. we are about double that for the drive between the bridge and the macarthur maze. transitioning over to the bay bridge toll plaza, you will see the traffic is backed up here. 25-minute wait before you make it on to the bridge. also keeping an eye on eastern contra costa county. it will be slow this morning. driving through pittsburgh and bay point.
7:20 am
but antioch looks good, especially after they open those lanes. southbound 680 is also slow. westbound 580 a normal commute slow off of the pass. and slows again on 580 as you drive into castro valley. i want to mention that 880 has been slow both directions in hayward and union city. 7:20. let's go to steve in the weather center. >> thank you, sal. lots of comments coming in. it's cold and a little bit of frost but more so to the east and south. a lot of 30s here. the higher clouds are moving through. that's a difference from yesterday's forecast that was sunny and windy. there are a few locations with the high clouds. let's look at the twitter universe. we built this city, one of our favorites. cold enough for chase to need a coat in glenn park in san francisco. i did see some 40s there. sabrina, ice on the roof. yes. we talked about that. moraga has some frost on the roof. but patricia in petaluma. i just looked at the temperature, is it really 37
7:21 am
degrees in petaluma? no. it's 39. it might have been 37 an hour ago. low 40s. if it wasn't for the higher clouds, i think they would be even colder. that's where the frost advisory is. it's kind of marginal on that. i think it's more to the south towards morgan hill. higher clouds will filter in throughout the day. 37 for fairfield. i know san ramon was at 35. palo alto was at 39. maybe temps are bouncing off the lows right now. 41 saratoga. also cupertino. santa cruz at 44. cloud cover continues to roll into the north. could be a few isolated showers. just high clouds will be the end result for us, until the weekend when clouds increase. it looks like cold coming in sunday and monday. 60s for your temps. we will take a couple degrees off of yesterday's highs.
7:22 am
so slightly cooler today. a little rebound in the temps on friday. rain developing sunday into monday. a cold system. >> winter feel. >> more snow in the mountains. that's good. >> thank you, steve. the time is 7:22. all right. hold the remotes. a major health warning for you tv binge watchers. come up in 20 minutes, the eight causes of death that a new study says you're more likely to get if you spend many hours watching tv every day. >> i thought it was disrespectful. >> a northern california lgbt community center is apologizing for the theme of its annual fundraiser. why some say it was culturally insensitive.

7:24 am
7:25 am
>> welcome back to mornings on 2. the time just turning 7:25. now we're starting to hear from some of the men involved in those big changes this week with the 49ers. quarterback blaine gabbert talked yesterday about replacing colin kaepernick as this sunday's starting quarterback. he says his nfl career has been bumpy but he has enjoyed the journey. he was drafted in 2011 by the jaguars in the first round but struggle withed a 5-22 record as a starter. >> it's been great. i wouldn't expect him to be any other way. we have a great quarterback room. the dynamic between us is wonderful. it's going to continue to be that way.
7:26 am
>> in no way is 2-6 all on kaepernick. that's all of us. okay. >> he was talking about having a good relationship with kaepernick. kaepernick has not yet talked publicly since he was benched. but the 49ers say he will be available to talk in the next couple of days. the sacramento lgbt community center is apologize fogger the theme of the fundraising program. the red dress party raises money for hiv testing and prevention programs. some 400 people attended the fundraiser that had a red dragon theme. an islander group says it featured western stereo types of japanese and chinese culture. >> they were sort of cut up to look amusing or funny not elegant or celebrating the beauty. i felt it was disrespectful. >> the center says it takes
7:27 am
full responsibility for the message it conveyed. time is 7:27. flu season has officially arrived in the bay area. next more on the death that has already been reported in the south bay. and we're live in san francisco's marina district where there is major concern of a dangerous intersection. and some people are taking matters into their own hands. we will tell them what is being done to keep this intersection safe. good morning. we're looking at a commute still pretty slow in many areas, including highway 4 in eastern contra costa county and walnut creek traffic. that's coming up. a cold one this morning. could be colder if the higher clouds didn't roll in. we will talk about a bigger change for the weekend.
7:28 am
7:29 am
7:30 am
>> good morning. 7:30 on mornings on 2. live pictures of the next of bay and buchanan in san francisco's marina district. this is where two 12-year-old boys were seriously hitted while walking to school by a dui driver. you see a man holding a sign. this is someone trying to make that intersection safer. he is doing his part. in two minutes, brian flores will talk with the san francisco supervisor who arrived at the scene and ask what more needs to be done. welcome back to mornings on 2. it is thursday, november
7:31 am
5th. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> and i'm dave clark. let's check your weather and traffic. steve paulson has a lot to tell you about on this thursday morning. >> in a short period of time. 30 seconds. it's cold. the higher clouds. yesterday was sunny and windy. today will be high clouds and a little breeze. but if the clouds did not come in, we would have a lot more low 30s and temperatures kind of leveled off in the north bay because of the higher clouds. a few reports of frost from the east bay to the south bay. higher clouds will keep us partly to mostly cloudy today. the breeze has died down. yesterday it was much stronger. there will be a few locations in the coast and hills that it picks up. 30s and 40s it looks like slowly warming off some of the lows. it will be a slow process. alamo at 38. danville at 39. antioch was and blackhawk were 39 last how. now they are a warmer 40. higher clouds. partly sunny to the sky.
7:32 am
the mix of sun and clouds giving us a cooler pattern today than yesterday. low 60s instead of the upper 60s. there's a little chill in the air and a big change for the weekend. sal, you had a minor issue last time. has that been taken care of it. >> it has been but still lots of slow traffic. we are looking at the east bay as a slow spot for a lot of the commute. east bay and also getting to the bay bridge into san francisco is backed up 25 to 30- minute delay. we've had a lot of slow traffic getting there onent state 80, 580 and 880 as is the typical case there. let's move to the san mateo bridge. there's a backup on 82 from 880 to the total plaza. that loosens up a little bit on the way to the highrise. in case you're trying to catch a flight to sfo, 101 is not all that slow. if you're driving in livermore, traffic looks good. as i can move the maps a little
7:33 am
bit to the west here, you can see that 880 has been slow between hayward and union city. a stretch of accidents will set you back. 7:33. let's go back to the desk. >> two 12-year-old boys who were hit in a san francisco crosswalk yesterday on their way to school are recovering from serious injuries. people who live near the intersection where this happened, they're demanding safer walking conditions. ktvu's brian flores is injoining us live in the city to tell us what is being done to keep that intersection safe. >> reporter: yeah. good. month, dave. many people in the marina district are concerned about intersection, including this gentleman that you will see standing at the corner wearing a yellow jacket. he is also holding a couple of flashing red sticks to warn drivers to slow down as he crosses the intersection. he is out here in response to the incident that happened yesterday involving two boys and a driver allegedly under
7:34 am
the influence. he is trying to raise awareness that the intersection is danger us and hopes that something can be done soon. just after 8:00 in the morning yesterday, two 12-year-olds boys were on their way to minute rina middle school when they were hit by a driver. that is 30-year-old kirsten andrick of san francisco. she is accused of being under the influence as she skirted around a truck that stopped for the boys at the intersection. we talked to the man who is trying to help people cross the street safely this morning. he says the solution is pretty simple. >> that there is not a stop sign for traffic flowing east and west on bay street. that there is not a traffic stop sign. >> reporter: now, he says he was a victim of being hit by a driver back in 20001 at mission. the driver ran a red light at the time and as a result he had severe brain trauma and injuries throughout his entire body. he is out here this morning
7:35 am
helping people cross the street. we are here now learned with supervisor mark farrell who is out here this morning. what is being done to get this intersection safer? are there plans to bring a stop sign here? and your reaction to what happened yesterday. >> as a parent of three small children what happened here yesterday is tragic and all of our prayers are going out to the children and the family and the school community here in marina middle school. we will be putting stop signs here within the next few days. so that will be up immediately. we've actually been in discussions for the last few years with the neighborhood and community about traffic calming measures along this corridor itself which will include repaving and restriping. in the interim, stop signs will be going up right away. it's important to say that we are doing everything that we can to make sure that vision 0 is a reality. there are no pedestrian accidents here in san francisco. this is intolerable. we will do all that we can.
7:36 am
as more and more people live in the city as the streets are more crowded with people walking, biking driving, we need to be so careful as residents and also the problem is as san francisco we can't design our streets to be safe from drunk drivers. and unfortunately this is an incident with someone who is blowing well above the legal limit. and we need to make sure that we send a message to those vicks that that is unacceptable on the streets and they will be prosecuted. >> to reiterate, stop signs will be here in the next few days at bay and buchanan. this isn't the only dangerous intersection in city. are there any other plans that you're thinking of putting stop signs or stoplights. >> absolutely. we have a huge campaign in san francisco around vision zero that is shared across the country. we have dedicated so many resources to it over the past few years. we spend millions every single year to make sure that we put in more stop signs and slow down traffic and create
7:37 am
lighting here so people aren't caught on blind spots like yesterday. it's a huge priority of mine and especially around children and schools we need to make sure that our intersections are safe. >> reporter: this is actually the fourth person that we have counted so far this morning that is being ticketed from from what we assume for people crossing this intersection. so at least from what we're hearing this morning from supervisor farrell, thank you for your time, there will be a stop sign here in the next few days and hopefully this intersection will be safer for those who cross it. guys, back to you. >> good information. brian flores in san francisco. thank you. >> 7:37. the flu season just started but the death of a patient in santa clara county is raising concerns this morning. ktvu's jeanine has a health advisory that was just issued. >> reporter: it's unnope how widespread the flew will be
7:38 am
this year. but doctors, health officials are recommending that people get the flu shot. you can go to your doctor's office or a pharmacy like the one behind me. they are available. the santa clara county public health department can release the identity of the person who died. but they say the victim was an adult between the age of 18 and 65 who had underlying medical conditions and did not receive a flu vaccination. they ended up dying of respiratory failure. health officials are advising anyone over six months of age to get vaccinated. typical symptoms are a sore throat, fever, and chills and run enose. >> it starts in october and can go all the way up to may. we have begun. the number of cases right now is still low. so we expect the flu season to ramp up in a couple months. >> reporter: the centers for
7:39 am
disease control and prevention say the predominant flu type is the same as last year. health officials say this vaccine is matched well to that strain. the cdc says those at risk are children under five, elderly, pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems. while we have been standing out here outside of the pharmacy, we have stopping and talking to people. one woman doesn't plan on getting the flu vaccine. i asked why and she says she works at a preschool around children and every time that the children come in that have gotten the flu shot, she claims they have gotten sick. but health officials will tell you that is just a myth. you can't get sick from getting the flu vaccine. it takes two weeks for the vaccine to actually take effect. so if that person is getting sick immediately after having the shot, that person was already sick. and it was just incubating. gasia. >> other people would say working with children we all
7:40 am
know as parents the germs that they can bring into the house or a classroom. you would think that a teachesh would be the first in line for a vaccination. >> reporter: i was surprised to hear that. that's why i asked why. i know health official people, doctors, nurses, are all required to get it. i was wondering what are the requirements for teachers. i don't know. >> that's one person's story. thank you for bringing it to us. a 9-year-old boy died during football practice in iowa. the coach saw the boy on the ground after they ran sprints at practice on monday. emergency responders performed cpr and took him to the emergency room where he later died. he died from an abnormal artery in his heart. he was in third grade. one issue in tuesday's election in san francisco's election may not be settled. here is the latest count for prop f that would put
7:41 am
restrictions on short term rentals. the no vote has 55% with 70,000 votes. yes has 45%. all of the precincts technically have reported but there are thousands and thousands of ballots not yet counted. a bigger than expect the number of provisional and mail-in ballots arrived there this week. >> there's actually awe any law in california that allows election departments to count ballot it's they're post marked as of election day. there are certainly tight races and thousands of ballots to be counted. >> if the result remains the same and prop f loses, supporters say they will bring up the issue next year before the new board of supervisors. they think they will get more support then because the board will have a majority of progressive members with the election of aaron paskin. they hope to finish the counting of the ballots by next
7:42 am
wednesday. now, in marin county, the results of tuesday's election is forcing leaders in san anselmo. they approved prop d that prohibits using memorial park as a flood detention basin. it would have been able to contain 12% of the water from the creek if it overflowed. but officials tell the marine journal that the surge will now begin for other flood detention basins. smart watches getting more and more popular these days. now there's a local company that wants to turn your old watch into a high tech time piece. we will tell you how it can be done. the ultimate betrayal. that's what one people in a community in illinois is saying of a police officer accused of staging his own suicide. one organization that donated money to the officer's family is asking for the money back.
7:43 am

>> a community in illinois is reeling after authorities say a police officer whose death led to a massive manhunt back in september actually committed suicide to cover up years of embezzlement. lieutenant charles joseph glennwitz was given a hero's funeral after he said he was chasing three suspects. now authorities say he had been stealing money for years from his department's youth program and that he killed himself because his theft was about to
7:46 am
be exposed. police are now investigating his wife and son in connection with the embezzlement. an organization that assists survivors of officers killed in the line of duty is asking the family to return a $15,000 donation it made in his honor. time now is 7:46. we love you here on mornings at 2. but watching too much tv can be deadly. that's what the national cancer institute says. >> it alarming and a wake-up call for many of us. there are reasonable expectations for the link between watching too much tv and deadly diseases. the national cancer institute says binge watching tv is not only bad for your waistline but it can be linked to other serious health problems. they researched 220,000 people between the ages of 50 and 71 that were all considered healthy at the beginning of the
7:47 am
study. it was determined that the people that watched more than three and a half hours of television per day were 15% more likely to die from a disease rather than from natural causes. now, the more television the older adults watched, the more likely they were were to die from conditions like heart disease, cancer, diabetes. also the flu, pneumonia, parkinson's disease and liver disease. according to the study, 80% of the americana difficults watched an average of three and a half hours of television per day which is more than half of their leisure time. and that is also what the researchers admit could be part of the problem. people who are watching three and a half hours of television or more. so stick with us during mornings on 2. maybe they're not exercising their brains as those getting out and doing things. >> my thought goes to when

8:05 am
making other plans. the commercial crab season is scheduled to start a week from saturday. and as most people know, crab is a big tradition for thanksgiving dinner here in the bay area. experts say if we get a few storms like steve is hinting we may, that could cool down the ocean water and making the crabs safe to eat. will it happen for thanksgiving dinner? we will have to wait to see. nurses at marine general hospital are on strike. they want to draw attention to what they're calling workplace safety problems. it includes equipment to help nurses lift and turn patients. something that can cause injuries when nurses try to do it on their open. they also want more staff. >> we're understaffed so we can't take care of the patients let alone get a break. >> some 500 nurses work at the hospital. >> faculty members at the 23 campuses in the cal state

8:09 am
video police pinning down and handcuffing a protester. the man's face was cut during the arrest, causing him to bleed on the road. police say he had tried to force his way inside chambers. according to police when officers tried to stop him, he pushed one of the officers. just before this scuffle, another protester had tried to push open the doors of the chambers who hit the assistant city manager trying to keep the doors closed. both protesters were arrested for battery. the landlords opposed to the moratorium arrived early and filled all of the seats so there was no more space for members of the tenants group to go inside and voice their concerns. the two men arrested were with the tenants rights group that ended up flowing into the hallway. >> after 25 landlords spoke and only four renters, people began chanting in the hallway. they finally said i'm not being in a cattle car alone without
8:10 am
being able to see anything. and they came out and they were chanting. >> in the aftermath we will take a look at the video from the council chambers. you know, cell phone videos that were taken last night. and we will do a full review. just for the criminal charges and also for the aspect of use of force, which is a routine for us. every time there is a use of force, we do a full review. >> reporter: as you just heard the chief explaining that use of force review is common procedure any time that anything like this happens. he also told me based on the video that he has seen so far, he does not think the officers acted inappropriately. the city council approved the 65-day moratorium for rent increases above 8% but not after a lot of time had passed. the meeting went on for 7 hours with the vote coming in around 1:30 this morning. back to you guys. >> i bet people will be talking about what happened for a long time after that. allie rasmus in the news room.

8:12 am
i got. a few sizes not really fitting but i'm glad i got what i wanted. >> the place cleared out fast. >> yeah. i didn't even get to see the jeans. i didn't get to see any of the jeans. i literally saw everything that was on there and i took it. some of it is not even my size. >> it looks like you got good stuff. the doors just opened at 8:00 this morning. you can see the first group of people rushed inside the store. let me show you the video when that happened, that big moment. all those people that came inside the store, they had been camped out since yesterday morning for this one of a kind collaboration, a special clothing launch here at h&m stores here in san francisco and around the world. people camped out since yesterday morning on the streets. the line went around the block. a couple hundred people in line. we talked with the woman first in line. she got here at 9:00 yesterday morning. she is from tracy. she explained why the long wait
8:13 am
was worth it. >> is this worth it, shannon. >> absolutely. i would spend a extra couple of days if i had to. it's very much worth it. you're getting a high end clothing line for a little bit of nothing. so yes, it's absolutely worth it. >> reporter: so balmain clothes -- i hope i'm pronouncing it correctly. i have been working on it all morning. they are usually quite expensive. and with this collaboration, these clothes are deeply discounted, you can say. much more affordable for folks who might not otherwise be able to afford these high-end designer clothes. and, again, folks that come inside the store, they get let inside about 30 people inside at a time. and they have 15 minutes to grab whatever they can. it's almost like a game show or something like that. fill up your bag as fast as you possibly can. 15 minutes. and then you have to check out. so the clock is ticking. i'm not quite sure exactly how much time they have left.
8:14 am
but the countdown is on, you guys, to say the least. everybody has to figure out what they want and get over the register soon. there's a whole line of people waiting outside of the store to get in here. the real question is how much are they going to find? as we heard the gentleman say earlier, a lot of the shelves already bare. a lot of the racks already cleared out. >> he didn't get his jeans. balmain is not the first designer to team up with h&m. there is a trend of these high end designers bringing some of their flavor or wares to kind of the mass market. >> reporter: yeah. absolutely. these are clothes that i think normally would be out of most people's price range. out of my price range. that's for sure. and all of a sudden you have one of these collaborations and it draws in a larger crowd of people who would not otherwise be able to afford these clothes. that's exactly what you have here.
8:15 am
and you see the result. you have a huge line of people outside of this store in san francisco. you have crowds of people rushing into stores all around the world. and that's the result, when these high-end clothes are heavily discounted. much more affordable. >> thank you, alex. we will bring you back during the 9 to see if there is anything left on the shelfs. >> reporter: we will see. if there's anything left for me. i'm looking around. we'll see. >> thank you. >> all right, alex. thank you. the time is 8:15. health officials are telling us that someone in the south bay has died from the flu. at 8:30, we will tell what you details we know about the death and how you can stay healthy this flu season. plus, when we will hear from san francisco sheriff- elect hen see and her take on the sanctuary city policy. we're looking at the bridge commute. right now on the span it looks okay. a little slow but better than yesterday as you head into san francisco. high clouds moving in. yesterday was sunny and breezy. today more of a high cloud
