7:01 am
with it and leaving behind cloud cover. the breeze will pick up. the system is too east and south except for south cover to hold on. we had rain towards the santa clara valley. hi, matt. with all said and done, we got over an inch of rain. low and current temperature is 43.3. there's the rh, relative humidity. that is high. the north/northeast breeze, furnace coming on today. 30s and 40s for your temperatures. tomorrow will be colder. no doubt about. still 40s around the east bay tomorrow. relative humidity is too high. but a lot of 40s. winter storm advisory still out until 10:00. then things will calm down. still snow showers up there. things look to be winding down

good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning, dave. this continues to be a fluid situation. as you saw in the last live shop, the workers in several trades were inside this mcdonalds on 24th and mission but have started marching northbound on mission towards 16th. that's where they're headed to continue this push this morning. several locations throughout the bay area, the push for a $15 minimum wage. as we go to video, this is going throughout the bay area and 270 cities across the country, including los angeles, san diego and sacramento to name a few. the timing is significant too. it marks one year until the general election. a lot of the workers are hoping for a state-wide ballot initiative by then. many are fighting for their lives, hoping to get -- say okay with the wage that they have.
7:04 am
we spoke with david campos a few moments ago and says that the $15 minimum wage needs to happen now. >> the point here is that people need a living wage to be able to live in a place not just like san francisco, but other parts of the state. >> reporter: now, the argument from several economists and other people is that this would hurt job growth. but people dispute that saying that is not the case. but as we take it back out here live, several of the workers were inside the mcdonalds but currently marching down towards 16th, escorted by police as well. this is just one of the events going on throughout the bay area and the country. 1:30 in oakland, 4,000 people will gather. guys, back to you. >> we have seen a lot of people and i know it's been noisy. has it been peaceful so far out
7:05 am
there? >> reporter: it has been peaceful for the most part. san francisco police are actually escorting several of the -- i don't know if you see the lights out there. it's a police cruiser walking behind the people who are out here this morning. so far it has been very peaceful. they did go inside this mcdonalds. but, again, peaceful this morning and hopefully says that way throughout the day as well. >> brian flores in san francisco. we will talk to you later. now to the east bay where a home in san leandro has a gaping hole this morning. the driver of an suv lost control and rammed the side of the house. alex savage is at the home where a woman sleeping was partnershipped under the ss-- was pinned under the suv. >> reporter: yes. the lady was talking when she was taking to the hospital last night. she has serious injuries after the suv landed on top of her while sleeping. she was sleeping inside the
7:06 am
garage of this home which had been converted into a where. that suv that hit her according to one witness going maybe 100 miles per hour when the driver lost control, jumped the curb and slammed into the side of the house on the corner. that car landed on top of the 25-year-old woman who was inside sleeping at the time. firefighters got here about 10:30 last night. it took them quite some time to get the woman out from underneath the suv. this all happened at the intersection of farnsworth in san leandro. the driver of the suv also hurt in the crash. we don't know how badly the man was hurt. we talked with one woman who witnessed everything last night. she didn't want us to show her face but described how the speeding suv, barreled through the intersection, clipped another car and hit the house. >> we were all coming out from under the bridge. the car passed me going at least 100 miles per hour and
7:07 am
ended up on the wrong side of the road. he clipped the car in front of me and went straight through the house. >> reporter: and authorities this morning also tell me three dogs were hurt in this crash as well. all of them taken to nearby vet hospitals. it's unclear exactly how they were injured. police say it's too early to know if the driver of that suv may have been under the influence or what other factors could have caused the suv to leave the road. obviously it appears as though speed played a role here. authorities also say there is significant structural damage to this house. as you can imagine, it's not safe for anyone to be inside. we understand that the red cross has moved in and providing a total of six people with a temporary place to say, gasia, after this bizarre crash in san leandro. >> the woman that we talked to sounds like she had a close call herself. >> reporter: yeah. it sounds as though the suv went right past her and she

>> welcome back to mornings on 2. the time is 7:13. san francisco is considering changing its lottery system for affordable housing. according to the examiner, city wants to set aside 40% of new development for applicants would live in the same neighborhood. that would improve the chances of preventing long-time city residents from being relocated. now the lottery system has been under fire lately because it draws from a pool of applicants that live outside of the neighborhood, even outside of the city. city council is due to talk about this issue next westbound. the department of vet raps affair has made progress in the effort to reduce back logs in health care claims and find housing for veterans. the number sored from 180,000 in 2010 to 611,000 by 2013. after a series of reforms it

7:16 am
expect for tonight. >> reporter: this is the fourth gop debate. the thinking is this crowded field will have to begin to thin. will tonight's debate be kind of the one thing that puts some of these campaigns over the edge? it is down to the final touches for the debate tonight on the fox network. this won't just be them facing the glare of the spot slights. the moderators are prepared to take heat themselves. >> i think the closer we get to the iowa caucuses, sometimes the candidates are desperate. you could have mother theresa asking questions and she would be ripped. >> reporter: this comes a week after a strong jobs report from the labor department. there are still concerns about the overall health of the economy. whether donald trump will be on the attack or ben carson can withstand scrutiny over his
7:17 am
personal biography, there is extra attention because of the last gop debate on cnbc last month that was supposed to focus on the economy but went into a cage match. >> how about talking about the substantive issues that people talk about. >> reporter: as far as the line- up for the debate -- you can see they're still going through rehearsals here -- eight pedestrian comes on the main -- eight podiums on the main stage. that means that huckabee and christie have been demoted to the undercard debate. it is disappointing for them and especially for christie who seemed to be building momentum, particularly in new hampshire. >> we spent 46 days in new hampshire more than any other candidate by far. >> reporter: yeah. new hampshire is a very important state at this stage of the game. one of the things to mention, the potential for protesters tonight. that's the theater right there. you see they set up the security zone across the
7:18 am
street. they will allow protesters here but they can only get this far. and we talked to one representative from the milwaukee police department who said that they met with some of the protest groups recently and think there might be 500 or so protesters out here. but the idea is to keep things as peaceful as possible. gasia. >> thank you. tonight's main debate starts at 6:00 p.m. you can watch it on the fox business network. you can stream the debate for free on we will have continuing coverage of the debate throughout the morning and later tonight. and ktvu's ross is in milwaukee. we will have live reports from him at 4:00, 5:00, and 10:00 today. and he will joining tomorrow morning as well. sal is joining us now. >> yeah. >> what are you seeing out there, sal? everybody behaving for you. >> we have a new crash that is on westbound 580. it's in east livermore.
7:19 am
westbound 580 traffic will be slow on the pass now. it slows again after that by the way. if you're driving on vascal road, it is not affecting the commute but the accident on the freeway will slow you down. 680 is also slow out of pleasanton down to fremont. traffic is still slow on 280 and 330 and cleaning up grove. that was reported to be a pedestrian accident. not life-threatening injuries which is good. let's go to the live pictures. i won't to show you the traffic backed up on 280 up to highway 17. at the bay bridge, it has been slow. a 30-minute delay before you make it on to the span. steve. >> sal. >> i'm holding up a beta max cassette. sony says they will stop making it next year. for those that have beta max at home. >> wow. >> yeah. >> uh-oh. >> dave, you don't, do you?

7:22 am
ever. how about that. going back to 1893, i think. snow will still continue up there for a few more hours. things are slowly winding down and heading south. still in the mix for snow showers. and temperatures are on the cool side and they will get colder tonight and tomorrow. that's when we will deal with the frost and freeze warnings. 50s and 60s on your temps. the only reason i went 64 santa rosa is if a north breeze kicks in. and clear and cold except for very i think critical minimums the next couple of mornings here. we look good through saturday. next system is sunday and monday. >> are you going to let gasia run today. >> she better bundle up. >> yep i jogged and in the span of 40 minutes i had cloudy skies, downpour and bright sup. and i said i love the bay area. >> wait five minutes. >> i thought of you. thank you, steve. it looks like target will

7:27 am
this neighborhood. wow. it shredded a 100-year-old tree. chunks of the tree flew on to the roof of the house and right through the bedroom window. landing on the bed. >> it hit my tree. and i saw a million pieces of my tree just flew up on the sky. i saw the tree just exploded in front of me. and it give me a minute to escape. that's a miracle. >> a minute. >> wow. >> she credits her dog cocoa woke her up because the dog had to go outside. she got out of the bed before the lightning strike occurred. debris from the tree barely missed a neighbor but did damage the neighbor's home. >> the pictures are amazing. >> wow. taxi drivers plan to strike in san jose today. a decision expected by the city council that has so many upset. >> reporter: we're live in san jose where a hostage situation

7:29 am
here at c.k. mondavi. to make this fine wine it takes a lot of energy. pg&e is the energy expert. we reached out to pg&e to become more efficient. my job is basically to help them achieve their goals around sustainability and really to keep their overhead low. solar and energy efficiency are all core values of pg&e. they've given us the tools that we need to become more efficient and bottom line save more money. together, we're building a better california.

7:31 am
>> good morning. it's 7:30. live pictures from international airport in san jose. there's something missing. cabs are not waiting in line to pick people up at the airport today as they usually are. in a few minutes allie will tell us why drivers are protesting and what it has to do with a ride share proposal. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> and good morning. i'm dave clark. let's that you can about weather and traffic. i wore a scarf once again because it's cold outside. >> that was a little laugh there. pretty cool out there. clearing out rapidly. the northerly breeze is kicking in. there's still some clouds around. overall it will be a nice day.
7:32 am
just not very warm. upper 50s and low 60s. and that northerly breeze in wind protected areas tonight and tomorrow will be even colder. still in snow in the sierra. tahoe reporting snow at this hour. 30 in santa rosa and napa. palo alto at 40. there will be a bunch more tomorrow morning. petaluma is in the 30s. mill valley, sonoma and the bay made it to 43. that is cold for the coast. northwest, north, northeast, north, northerly breezes in place. we will take it. the snow is stacking up there. but our system is moving south. as it does, it takes the cloud coverage with it. 50s and 60s on the temps. sal, 7:32. the usual slow traffic? anything on your monitors there? >> we are looking at a big
7:33 am
delay, steve. >> okay. >> on 80 westbound. i want to show you the east shore freeway. how long it will take you to drive between the bridge and the macarthur maze. it's taking an hour as you drive through that stretch. normally without any traffic it takes about 20 minutes. so there's your reference point. when you get to the bay bridge, you will see slow traffic at the toll plaza which is not unusual. see that all the time. it is backed up. slow traffic all over the place. when it comes to highway 4, it has been slow. 680 is very slow as you head south from concord to walnut creek. as we push down to livermore, they're clearing an accident after the crash it looks okay. but slow traffic again if you're driving farther westbound 580 slows at the castro valley y. 7:33. let's go back to the desk. >> more information from san jose about a gunman who held a woman hostage for several hours. now both of them are dead.
7:34 am
jeanine joins us live from san jose. and you talked to another man who lived in that same house, jeanine. >> reporter: yeah. actually the man that we spoke to is inside right now. he says he rents ai room here and he is claiming that the gunman also used to rent here as well at this home on camden avenue off of highway 85. but he says that the gunman was kicked out over the summer. police have not confirmed that information. all they're telling us is that the gunman and the woman that he took hostage here knew each other. >> the suspect is down. female is down. >> doug: that was the sound of gunfire that occurred around 5:00 yesterday afternoon. police say that the suspect came out of the house with at least one gun, one officer and the suspect fired shots. the suspect died shortly after. the police activity started a couple hours earlier. officers say that the suspect
7:35 am
had fired two shots into the ground and forced a woman into the home. the s.w.a.t. team spent hours on the scene. it ended once the gunman suddenly exited the home and then the shootout happened. officers found the body of the woman that he was holding hostage inside. we spoke to a neighbor who say that a family with children also lived there. >> it's terrible. you know, the situation i didn't know nothing about. but the whole situation is terrible. it's heart breaking. i feel for the grandma and the kids. >> the woman's identity and the suspect's identity have not been released yet. an officer was grazed by a bullet though when shots were fired. he was taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries. police are not saying who shot first, the gunman or the officer. but police did stay on scene overnight collecting evidence and interviewing witnesses.
7:36 am
they have not released a motive yet. this for sure rattled the neighborhood. there's a woman who lives around the back of the house and she just came by a few minutes ago before we went live and brought a bouquet of flowers. a man came by and said a pair for them. >> jeanine, thank you. >> cab drivers are sounding off about ride sharing companies. allie is in san jose where a cab strike is expected to continue for a second day. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. no official word if the strike is extended to today but we can show you what we see out here and we don't see a lot of taxis in the pickup area at terminal b. there's normally a long line
7:37 am
of taxis waiting to pick people up from the airport. you can see it's completely empty. a few vans up closer to the traffic light who have been here picking up people instead. no taxis picking up people right now. taxi drivers say they are upset because they want a fair playing field when it comes to competing with ride-sharing companies like you knower and lift picking up passengers at the airport. they went on strike yesterday at san jose airport and didn't pick up any passengers. cab drivers right now have to undergo mandatory finger print checks to operate out of the airport. uber and lift were first required to do the same thing but up in of them signed up for the program and that essentially made san jose the only airport that a customer could not use ride sharing. one of the recommendations was random monthly audits and finger print checks for 1% of
7:38 am
ride share drivers. the mayor said that today city council will consider another option. they will require all transportation companies, cab drivers and ride sharing drivers to have an independent organization do their background checks and all of the drivers, 1 pes of the drivers, taxis and ride sharing will be subject to a random monthly audit. here is what he had to say about it. >> like all compromises, it's not perfect. and what would be a far better solution is if we had a statewide requirement for all ride sharing and taxi companies that required finger prints and background checks. unfortunately we don't have that. >> reporter: what the mayor was saying, if the state required all uber and lift drivers across the state operating anywhere, not just at the airport to have background checks and finger print checks it would make things easier. they wouldn't have separate rules for taxi drivers and ride sharing companies. as he mentioned in that sound
7:39 am
byte, that doesn't exist right now. the city council meeting starts at 1:30. we expect taxi drivers to be out there. they're certainly not here. they're not picking people up at this airport. back to you guys. >> allie in san jose. thank you. 7:39. what appears as what started as an argument over lottery tickets ended up with one man in the hospital with life threatening injuries. it was caught on video on mission street at the market. the video shows a man in blue punching another man and slamming his head against a shelf. you see that on the left side of the screen. now a closer view. two men had argued who was first in line to buy lottery tickets. the victim suffered a broken nose, a broken jaw and traumatic brain injury. the suspect ran but returned to the store an hour later and was arrested. he is identified as able mancia. in louisiana family members and friends held a funeral
7:40 am
yesterday for a 6-year-old boy who was shot and killed by two marshalls who were chasing his father. the little boy was riding in his dad's car when the marshalls started chasing the car. the marshalls opened fire on the car. the little boy was hit by at least five bullets. the father was also wounded. a lawyer for the boy's father says the shooting was not justified and there is video showing the father with his hands up. family members say that little boy was an angel. >> just an awesome little boy. he would smile and his eyes would light up. he was an angel. he always had his wings here on earth. >> the two marshalls were arrested and are now facing charges of second degree murder and attempted murder. the marshalls were also moved to another jail to keep them separate from other inmates. the order that protected an
7:41 am
estimated 5 million undocumented immigrants from being deported was challenged by texas and 25 other states with republican governors. the obama administration argued that the president was within his right in deciding to defer deportation of selected groups of immigrants, including children who were brought to the u.s. illegally. however, the court said that the president doesn't have the authority to make new immigration laws. top story now. that houston, texas man's whose dying wish was to see the saar wars movie before it came out has died. the wife says he died in his sleep. ashley fleetwood said that daniel put up an amazing fight to the very end and that this was his first -- his last selfie and they took it together. daniel had a rare and aggressive form of cancer. he did receive a special screening of the new star wars
7:42 am
movie the force awakens at his home last week. that story quickly went viral and sparked the hashtag force for daniel. 7:41 now. a major move by starbucks when it comes to their employees who are veterans. how they are helping with the cost of college. he saved our lives for sure. i have no doubt. i was found asleep. boy, a pint-sized hero. what he did to save himself and his grandmother when their home caught on fire. we're looking at a morning commute better than yesterday. slow traffic in the west valley on 280. we will tell you more about that coming up. skies are clearing out. it's cold and the breeze is picking up. not going to be very warm today. not even if you're heading to the grand lake. we will have temps and also a look at the sierra snow.

7:44 am
7:45 am
>> retailers are weighing the pros and cons this morning as they decide whether or not to open for thanksgiving. >> it's a hot topic. a lot of shoppers talking about it too. pam cook is back in the studio. the latest company saying they're going to be open. >> yeah. sit and relax with your family or head out and shop until you drop. the biggest retailers are betting that millions of people want to shop. target is the latest to announce it will open its doors at 6:00 thanksgiving night, the same as last year. it will stay open all night and throughout black friday until 11:00 friday night. target will have the same deals in its stores as it does on its website all day thanksgiving. so you can do both, stay home and take advantage of the holiday deals. however, people who actually go into the store on black friday will get a coupon for a 20%
7:46 am
discount to use during early december. most of us have more shopping to do. toys r us and sears will also open on thanksgiving. wal-mart has not said if it will open. but it was open last year at 6:00 p.m. staples will not be open on thanksgiving. rei chose to stay closed through black friday as well to give customers and employees time to enjoy family. but the balance of family and finance will certainly come into play for both the retailers and the shoppers because black friday is still expected to be the number one sales day. >> yeah. >> so -- >> a lot of -- >> go ahead. i'm waiting to see if some of the stores that say they're going to stay closed will hate to see their competition -- >> that's it. analysts -- >> also getting media attention. >> and analysts are saying some of the retailers are making it a marketing thing.
7:47 am

i have to think of a ditch adjective instead of hairy. we had a tough commute yesterday. i'm going to stick with tough. westbound 24 as you drive through la fayette. you see bart is back on time after earlier delays and things are generally much better but still slow traffic also on nearby 680. we're looking at the bay bridge. unless you think it all of a sudden got light, that's not the case. it's backed up for 20 to 30 minutes. we had an accident on livermore freeways westbound 580 atavist co- 880 is slow from 238 all the way down to fremont. santa clara valley all of the freeways are slow. 101, 288 and 85. but it is falling in the line of a normal backup. 7:48. let's go to steve. >> all right, sal. thank you. it's clearing out and it's cold out there. a little breeze kicking in out of the north. northerly direction. that's scouring out the clouds. there are still some around but the trend is to clear it out
7:49 am
and bring in drier air. but it's going to be spectacular visibility but not that warm. the system is churning over to the sierra and points south. it is moving out of the area but not before we had good rainfall. 2.12 and a big hail storm, biggest he has seen in years. santa cruz in the mix as well. 1.53. daly city, three quarters. brodie sanders had .60. crocket .41. take your pick. the heaviest santa cruz mountains and san jose south. not much but a third to half an inch of rain. santa rosa close to that. concord half an inch. and my good friend bob in danville picked up .61. mother nature is greening my lawns. sprinklers off for the season. no surcharge here.

7:51 am
rid of the algae that put a hold on the crab season. somebody will fill us in on that. the trend is to keep the northerly direction in place that northwest so we should get upwelling and i expect cold water temperatures for a while. light snow in truckee and south lake tahoe. a winter weather advisory until 10:00. it's sliding south and about done. then we will focus our attention on frost and freeze warnings tonight and tomorrow. as the system moves out, the drier air comes in. it was a show with the lightning and the thunder yesterday. that was good for us. sun, clouds, 60s on a lot of these temperatures. the south will be slower to clear out such as morgan hill and gilroy. it looks like a cold, cold morning as we head into wednesday. there will be 20s to the north
7:52 am
no doubt about it. looks good through saturday. and then the next system sunday and monday. they're coming in every sunday examine monday. and the trend next week looks wet. >> ski resorts are so happy. >> absolutely. >> thank you, steve. >> time is 7:52. volkswagen offering cash to car owners over that diesel emissions scandal. how much cash? plus what the epa is doing to prevent it from happening again. that's at 8:00. but first. >> it was like the note in the bottle. a west point graduate is reunited with something that he lost during the vietnam war and he thought it was gone forever.

7:57 am
to hawaii to be repaired. it was supposed to be shipped back to him but it got lost so he had a replacement made. recently a missouri woman whose husband died in vietnam found the relationship among her husband's things and able to trace it back to him using west point's ring recovery program. she returned. he couldn't believe it. she says she couldn't imagine doing other than trying to find the rightful owner. she hopes they will become friends. >> i bet they will. >> do the right thing. the university of missouri still making news after days of protests about alleged racism that led to the resignation of the university's president. we will tell you what one faculty member did that has her at the center of attention. nationwide fast food protests continue at this moment, including workers here in the bay area. what is behind the fight for 15. good morning. we're looking at the morning commute. right now the traffic is

8:02 am
it's already cold now. but we're clearing out the cloud cover. the humidity is a little too high even toe there's a lot of 30s. the breeze is already kicking in. our system is moving out of the picture much as it does, it's taking its cloud cover with it. there is still good snow up in the sierra. snow in reno. any chance of snow around november 19th to the 20th in reno? yes. it looks like all the way through thanksgiving the systems are coming out of the north. no doubt about it. there is a little breeze holding a few of these up. temperatures 45 and 46 for morgan hill and gilroy. santa cruz made it to 42. bolder creek at 41. a little bit of a breeze. signs of it being a northerly direction. it will peck up as the system slides to the south. that will allow the cloud cover to clear out. a cool and breezy day.
8:03 am
patchy fog earlier. that is disappearing. 50s and very low 60s. slow traffic. anything else to report. >> there are some slowdowns and crashes. today will seem like a break compared to yesterday. let's look at some of the photos -- not photos. video. it could be a photo but it's live video of 280 northbound getting up to highway 17. sometimes i start getting my social media mixed up with television. northbound 280 looks all right. it's improving. let's talk about the rest of the south bay. a lot of slow traffic on 101 as you drive into 9 valley. northbound 101 is slow all the way to mountain view. as we look at the commutes here you can see the traffic is going to be busy as you drive through castro valley. we had earlier problems there. southbound 880 is going to be slow as you drive south. and also northbound from about san leandro and pockets up to downtown oakland. the bridge is backed up 20 to 30 minutes up to the span.
8:04 am
>> thank you, sal. new this morning a woman from san leandro was rushed to the hospital this morning after a bizarre crash. >> alex is in san leandro to break down how this happened. >> reporter: the woman that was hit by the suv has critical injuries but firefighters say she was awake and alert while she was taken to the hospital last night. the suv that landed on top of this woman was going close to 100 miles per hour when it slammed into the side of this house. the car lost control and it plowed right into the garage area which has been converted into a bedroom. that's where this 25-year-old woman was sleeping last night. and she had this suv land right on top of her. firefighters got here. it took them quite some time just to get the woman out from under the suv. she was pinned underneath it.
8:05 am
the crash was at 10:30 last night at farnsworth and purdue street in san leandro. the driver of the suv was a 20- year-old man from see san leandro. we spoke with one woman who witnessed the crash and said that the speeding suv barreled right through the intersection, clipped another car before going into the house. >> that vehicle was going very fast to penetrate to wall, to leave the cashes that it did in the intersection prior to impact. we know that the witnesses are saying somewhere in the area of 100 miles per hour. i don't know if that's even out of the realm of possibility right now. >> reporter: authorities also say there were three dogs hurt in last night's crash. all of them were taken to nearby vet hospitals. we don't know exactly the extent of their injuries. according to police, it sounds like all of the dogs were
8:06 am
inside the bedroom with the woman and hit by flying debris. police say it's too early to know if the driver was under the influence or what factors caused the suv to leave the room. that is being investigated. authorities say there was significant damage, structural damage to the home. for that reason, it's not safe for anyone to be inside for the time being. the red cross has come in and are helping out the family living here, providing a total of six people with a place to stay. and, again, at this point, san leandro police have not arrested that driver, a 20-year- old who is from here in san leandro. but they say this is certainly a possibility that this young man could face charges in connection with the crash. at the very least there could be reckless driving charges. there is the potential for dui charges as well. >> thank you, alex. >> the time is 8:06. in the meantime bay area fast food workers and fellow workers all over the country are
8:07 am
walking off the job, demanding a higher minimum wage. >> brian flores is in san francisco where hundreds of people have marched this morning to have their voices heard. >> reporter: yeah. they were here just a few minutes ago but disbursed 15 minutes ago. term earlier they were gather -- earlier they were gathered at a mcdonalds on mission. they want an increase to the minimum wage to $15. they say they need that to survive living here in san francisco. this was on mcdonalds on 24th and mission. an estimated 100 people first gathered outside and entered restaurant where they continued. supervisor david campos was among those supporting an increase. he has seen and heard the stories of the people in his district who say 24th work two or three jobs just to make ends
8:08 am
meet. >> the point is that people need a living wage to be able to live in a place not just like san francisco but other parts of the state. in san francisco, a worker needs to have almost six minimum wage jobs to be able to afford to get housing in san francisco. >> reporter: several other people, including economists, saying increasing the wage to $15 would hurt job growth. this is happening throughout the east bay and the country. similar walk-outs and gathering are happening at 43 restaurants in the east bay. many include fast food works, teachers, janitors and child care workers just to name a few. the timing is significant as well. we are exactly one year away until the november general election. many of the people that we spoke with this morning are hoping that a ballot initiative to increase the minimum wage to $15 will be on the ballot by
8:09 am
then. i want to mention that there are more events happening throughout the day. the big event happening at 4:30 where an estimated 4,000 people will gather at the please in a- - plaza in oakland. >> protests are happening at mcdonalds, wendy's, kfc. workers in san jose, oakland and sacramento are among those protesting. the time is 8:09. a berkeley high school student accused of putting racist and threatening messages on a library computer may face criminal charges. that triggered a massive protest last thursday. thousands of students walked out of school. the newspaper is reporting that the school is handing evidence over to the berkeley police for a possible hate crime investigation. football players at the university of missouri will return to practice today. now that the school president and university chancellor
8:10 am
announced their resignations. students complained about racial harassment and intimidation on campus. they demanded that president wolf step down. one student started a hunger strike. members of the football said they wouldn't practice or play. the university president's resignation is effective immediately. the chancellor will step down at the end of the year. and a mass communications professor at the university of missouri is under fire for trying to keep a student journalist away from a campus protest. >> you need to get out. you need to get out. >> no, i don't. >> you need to get out. >> i actually don't. >> all right. hey who wants to help me get this reporter out of here. i need some muscle over here. >> the woman in the youtube video was identified as assistant professor melissa click. she tried to keep reporters out of the student encampment. first amendment protection allows reporters to be in the
8:11 am
quad. the professor had no comment. and we checked that her social media accounts have been made private. >> that story won't go away, i don't think. more protests in the south bay today override-sharing services. why cab drivers say they're expanding their protest. and next a preview of the latest gop debate. find out the one topic we are likely to hear about the most.
8:12 am
8:13 am
8:14 am
>> a slightly smaller group of gop candidates will take the statement for the -- take the stage for the debate. >> caroline has what to expect. good morning, caroline. >> reporter: good morning to you dave and gasia. two debates will have the undercard debate. and then only eight on the stage at the main event. that's the smallest group we have seen so far. they will be allowed to give 90 second answers. it should be excited focused on the economy of course because this is the fox business network. expect to talk about taxes, the labor force,. the moderators saying we are business journalists. this is what we do. we will have crunched the numbers. if they don't add up, we will press the candidates on that. >> caroline, a lot of people saying that tonight's debate is
8:15 am
do or die for jeb bush. what do you think about that. >> reporter: i agree. dead man walking is what some pun dents have been using for him. he went after marco rubio and said you're not showing up for work. rubio swatted him asaid and he looked really soft during that moment. will he try that again? it will be interesting to see. bush supporters are already gearing up for attack ads to attack rubio because rubio is ascending in the polls. rubio came out with an ad using jeb bush's words against him. just using sound bytes of jeb bush praising him throughout the years including how he would make a great president. so expect those two. i think if there's main friction it will be between bush and rubio. >> we will be watching the two men leading the way, donald trump and dr. ben carson. what are you looking for as far
8:16 am
as them? >> reporter: ben carson, good question. he has been hammered this week by the media because of the inconsistencies and irregularities in his biography. questions have been coming out this week. although he has been using that to fund raise saying the media is attacking him unfairly. will he take that head on? he will have an opportunity to talk about subjects that he wants. will the moderators ask that question, we don't know. trump is going to take a swing at somebody. it has happened at the three previous debates. >> chris christie will not be on the main stage tonight, nor will huckabee. does this mean that it's over for these two? do you expect to see them drop out soon or not. >> reporter: that's a good question. chris christie has been up in the polls particularly in the key state of new hampshire within the last week or two. but the polls that they used,
8:17 am
he didn't make the threshold. he says i just need to shine. it doesn't matter what stage i'm on at what time. i'm still going to get the attention and talk to voters. >> all right. caroline from milwaukee, thank you for the latest on the debate. thank you. >> reporter: you bet. >> and tonight's debate is exclusively on the fox business network. main debate starts at 6:00 p.m. our time. fox business will be streaming the debate for free. you can watch even if you don't have a cable subscription. ross will be in milwaukee reporting live for us throughout the night. the time is 8:17. let's check in with sal and get you out the door. i know you're watching the macarthur maze. >> yeah. you can tell by looking at this gasia, and dave, that the maze traffic is slow coming around the corner to the bay bridge getting into san francisco. you will see a big delay of about 25 minutes before you make it on to the bridge. but it has improved in the last
8:18 am
few minutes which gives us hope. today will seem much better in comparison. this is a look at the toll plaza it elf is. so that traffic is slow. i want to look at the east bay map because we have a lot of slow traffic in oakland, in san leandro. 880 northbound and westbound 580. but the traffic in the livermore valley has really improved. they're clearing an accident that has held some people up. for the most part a nice- looking commute. one more thing here -- actually i want to mention of that bart is back on time after earlier delays. let's go to steve in the weather center. >> thank you, sal. skies clearing out. it's a cool, cool breezy pattern. especially on the coast and higher elevations. it's taking the cloud cover out of it. but sparkling visibility looks good from inside where it's warm. not like outside where with it's a cool, cool pattern. 30s and 40s. tonight and tomorrow we will get even colder lows with frost and freeze advisories already out for wednesday morning. the system is churning up
8:19 am
towards the sierras and sliding south. as it does, the drier air comes in behind it. so cal 2 plus. and gilroy had an inch and a third. daly city an inch and a quarter. just shy of half of an inch of rain in antioch. about a third to half an inch of rain from oakland up to marin county and santa rosa and the peninsula. 40s on the temps. santa rosa says 39. they made it to 34 and it will be even colder than that in wind protected areas. a lot of 40s east bay and inland. mill valley at 3. petaluma in the 30s. tonight will be even colder as that breeze starts to pick up. if it dies down tonight and tomorrow we will see some
8:20 am
20sand 30s to the north. these are the coldest water temps i have seen in a long time. 56, 58. that's the coldest for half moon bay i'm guessing for a year's time. i would think that will help things. 27 up in truckee. light slow to moderate snow. and temperatures will be on the chilly side. the weather advisory until 10:00 for the sierra. things are sliding south and we will start to see better conditions. still we have frost and freeze advisories for many. that will be tonight into tomorrow. there goes the system. give it credit. it was a show with lightning, thunder and hail and good rain. especially to the south and really good snow up in the sierra. 50s and 60s on your temps. they will take a tumble overnight into tomorrow. so it will be a three dog three cat night tonight and into tomorrow. it will be sunny and beautiful for the next few days. but the morning lows will be
8:21 am
quite cold. increasing clouds next season sunday and monday. >> wow. >> that's what we asked for. >> absolutely. >> we will take it. >> right. >> thank you, steve. >> we continue to follow up on the deadly hostage situation that we were following in the south bay yesterday. what a man who lives in the house where the incident took place told us this morning about the woman held hostage and the suspect. now other automakers will face extra testing. mornings on 2 will be back in two minutes.

8:30 am
>> welcome back to mornings on 2. our time is 8:30. there is some anger in san jose over proposed rules for ride sharing companies there. cab drivers say those companies are held to a different standard than cab drivers. >> allie talked with the mayor who says there may be a new option on the tabling here. allie is live at the airport to
8:31 am
explain. >> reporter: good morning, gasia. no official word about whether the taxi drivers are on strike again today. we know they were yesterday. but we can tell you what we don't see here. we don't see any taxi cabs picking people up here at terminal b at sap jose airport. that area where you see under that awning normally according to the manager over there who manages the taxi cabs says there's usually a long line of taxis waiting to pick people up from the airport. as you can see it is empty. just a few shuttle vans. but they have already taken off, taking people who would like to get a taxi on their way. taxi drivers say they want a fair playing field when it comes to competing with ride- share companies like you knower and lift. they went on strike yesterday at the airport. they were upset because they say that right now uber and lift drivers get an unbe fair advantage. cab drivers right now have to undergo mandatory finger print checks in order to pick passengers up.
8:32 am
initially the city council had required you knower and lift to do the same thing. but they snubbed the airport. none of them signed up for the airport. that made it the only airport in the area that people could not use a ride sharing business to get home. that of course prompted the protests. the council will consider a new option today at 1:30, doing away with mandatory checks for drivers and having instead monthly audits and finger print checks for 1 pes of the drivers whether with a taxi or ride sharing company. >> like all compromises, it's not perfect. and what would be a far better solution is if we had a statewide requirement for all ride sharing and taxi companies that required finger print based background checks. unfortunately we don't have that. >> reporter: the state requires background checks for you
8:33 am
knower and lift drivers but not finger print based background checks. that's what he was referring to. no airport in california requires those finger print based background checks. that's why it hasn't come up as an issue here. >> allie, thank you. >> the time is 8:33. let's get you out the door. we have to check weather and traffic. steve paulson, interesting stuff. >> yeah. cold. cold. >> yes. >> no doubt about it, gasia and dave. wind protected areas, there are going to be brisk conditions. still a few clouds around. looking at the san rafael bridge. why not. thank you. control room. why not. we do have our system moving out. snow up in the sierra. winter weather advisory until 10:00. mark you heard me last hour say tonight will be a three dog,

three cat tonight. good thing that i have three dogs. they will come in handy. so will the extra blanket. and mike down in gilroy, good morning, sp. good morning mm. looking for a colder morning tomorrow as the skies remain clear. that is correct. speaking of 48. he had 45. tomorrow i expect 35 or 32. santa cruz made it to 42 this morning. a lot of 40s around. 50s. we had a few 30s. a lot more tomorrow. will be a school day. the system giving a little bit of umph up there in the sierra nevada where we have had great snow. in the blue, the frost and freeze warnings will be the focus of attention tonight and tomorrow as the system slides south out of the area. but the dry air comes in and the breeze picks up. so patchy fog, low clouds around. 50sand 60s for temperatures today. very cold tonight. sal, an issue with bart? what do you have for us there?
8:35 am
is that right. >> earlier this morning, steve, we had a train that actually had some smoke. it turned out to be a track problem where one of the insulators actually started smoking and they had to slow the system down and there were delays for a time. we have pictures that were taken from people who were on these trains. they're is one of them that we scoured from social media. it turned out to be one of the track insulators on the electric third rail that ends up doing that. so the problem has been fixed. it was near civic center station in san. from. the system has a 10 to 15- minute delay recovering from the problem. this is a truck accident reported westbound 580 as you come up on the top of the dublin grade. one lane is taken away with the truck accident. may have lost its load. medics are on the way. we have slow traffic there on
8:36 am
