4:24 pm
surfed it as young kids, me and my cousin and brother. we used to think it was crazy that there was no way in hell we would surf out there. >> but then ... you said ... >> i figured i would paddle out and give it a look in the channel and watch it. i was 16 when i did that. and then through progression i moved highway closer and closer to where it breaks and probably 18 when i started to get good waves out here. my dad was a firefighter and i was like the schedule he was able to surf with a lot of days off so i started to go to school to do that and follow in his foot steps and started working on an ambulance and enjoyed it and i like the medical aspect and kind of a progressing thing. there's new medicine and you are always constantly learning because stuff is always changing. there is days out there that are scarier than others. when it gets big it will break
4:25 pm
on the outer part of the reef and yeah, it can be terrifying. when you wipe out, out there, a lot of people are relate it to a car wreck. you kind of try to hold your limbs in and they are getting kicked by your feet and then, there is the being held deep under water. the swell before it i wiped out pretty bad and felt like my ears would pop and i had to clear them under water. you get pushed and the water comes over top of you and it is tough. >> proud member there of sf fire as a paramedic and proud participant in the mavericks competition. what is so cool, laid back and as a teenager in high school, he studied on his board. you got to sit there and study the waves and really understand
4:26 pm
that exact point where it is. >> i like that. good for him. alternate came in and came in second. flood insurance and what you need to know about protecting your property as we get deeper in the el nino season. your smart phone is more likely than encrypted to protected your data but the threat of terrorism has lawmakers saying they need a way around that. what you need to know about the encryption debate when the four
4:27 pm
on two returns.
4:28 pm
4:29 pm
the mass shooting in san bernardino ignite add debate about encryption technology. many manufacturers include the technology to protect user's data but law enforcement argues that it blocks them from accessing critical pieces of evidence. the san bernardino killers use smart phones and try to destroy them during the time between their attack and when they die in a shoot out. trying to access the data more than two months later. police enforcement look can
4:30 pm
at the technology and the big issue whether law enforcement and community should be given a back door to encrypt the cell phone after a court subpoena. the director of the f.b.i. told the senate intelligence committee law enforcement simply needs this access. it was part of the intelligence center and the cia and to work on a mandate to access this information. >> but many tech experts say it is not a good idea including apple ceo tim cook that says it is a people's right to privacy. and we shouldn't give into this. >> a study by harvard
4:31 pm
university says that giving police access won't keep the public safe. in the harvard study it says "any national law mandating inscription back doors will affect the users. smart criminals and terrorists will be able to switch to more secure alternatives." >> we are taking a deeper look at this. >> with us the attorney for the electronic frontier foundation nate fondoza. what are we talking about a code to open your phone, is it more than that and when did this need for inscription come about. >> it is impossible to get the
4:32 pm
data stored on the phone right now and we are talking about messages. they are secure from the time they leave to the time they arrive at the other person's phone and not the f.b.i. or apple or phone companies can decode them. >> and do you know who tim cooper is? >> yes. >> he has introduced a measure for all cell phones to have the capacity to talk about unlock data. and with a court order impacting it on users. he says it is not the boogey man or edward snowden. 9 nine percent of the public will not have their phone
4:33 pm
searched. what is your response. >> if it is 99% of us, 33 million californians, one percent will? that is insane rate. we are not worried about f.b.i. access or nsa access. we are worried about criminals. we are worried about organized crime. we are worried about foreign government and identity thieves. inscription keeps us safe. >> does it make us more vulnerable to hacking? >> yes. the scientists are unanimous. not a single voice in dissent that if you put in a back door will you make all of the devices less secure for all of us. >> so hackers can get it and get my email address and my passwords and whatever i have
4:34 pm
that could affect my bank accounts and just open them up? >> that's right or your competitor could steal a story our laptop. if you are boeing shall the chinese could get there in and steal plans for the latest spy plans. we need inscription. >> is there an answer or compromise? seems like there would be a compromise. san bernardino terrorist phone trying to figure out information. i would think a majority of people would say great, what can we learn from the terrorists? >> especially when the subjects are dead and you can see what they were communicating and is there anything wrong with getting that information. >> san bernardino is perfect. it doesn't hide who they were
4:35 pm
talking with but what they were saying. we know who they were communicating and for how long and how soon before the attack. you know as the former director of the cia said we kill people based on data and all of that is meta data and inscription does not hide. >> it so what is inscription hiding? >> fit is technically possible we believe that should be turned over to law enforcement. >> so f.b.i. director james comby cited the san bernardino case. he said it is not just about that particular case. it is on the state and local level. here is what he had to say. >> a woman was murdered in louisiana last summer, 8 months pregnant killed and no clue as to who did it except her phone is when she is found and killed and couldn't open it and the case is unsolved and i hear
4:36 pm
about all over the country from my local law enforcement. but what is confusing is when folks say we want access to company servers and their codes and what we would like is people to comply with court orders. lots of people do and people that make phones are unable to unlock it when judges order it. what do you think? >> we want to have a world where law enforcement gets what it needs. unfortunately right now it is not possible to keep us secure while giving law enforcement everything that they need. in the san bernardino example it is perfect. we know who did it and have the phones and who they are communicating with and law enforcement gets the job done. sometimes inscription may have an unsolved case same thing with the locks and doors on your window. >> maybe it is like san bernardino it is not unsolved yet. sure two people dead but maybe
4:37 pm
there's people in the united states that are part of the plot that we don't know about. >> the interesting thing in what comby said, he didn't say that inscription was hindering the investigation. >> more on that harvard study which explains that even if the u.s. came down with the encryption law, talk about foreign inscription. can they go outside of the united states. >> yes. the bad guys are going to use inscription from abroad and we live in a world with inscription and with secured communications and devices and there is nothing that congress do? >> math doesn't compromise. the engineers and the
4:38 pm
scientists that have looked at it have told us unanimously that no it is not possible what james comby wants would be great. if we could give it to him, that would be awesome. and he is living in a fantasy world. >> we could go on for another 20 minutes. we have to wrap it up. nate cardoza. thank you for coming in. coming up, the threat of a devastating winter storm system thanks to el nino has californians taking action to protect their property. the trend that has fema taking notice. outside our doors. another round of unseasonable mild temperatures around the bay. this will be the final day. big changes coming as early as tomorrow morning. i will show what you you can expect and the change to wet weather coming up. >> one more live look outside. a gray northbound 680, a slow start. the four on 2. we will be right

4:42 pm
day summit in southern california. first meeting there on u.s. soil. 10 southeast asian leaders are discussing economic trade and security issues. leaders today discussed maritime issues and where china and several other southeast asian steps have claims. >> i reiterated that united states will operate wherever international law allows and we will support the rights of other other countries the same. the meeting comes on the heels of china's presence in the region with conflicting territorial claims over the south china seas. beijing claims that other countries have rival claims. more and more californians purchase flood insurance. the number of flood insurance policies taken out by homeowners and it's latest numbers show a 25% spike in
4:43 pm
california. the largest increase since the national flood insurance program began in 1968. we are joined in the studio now with fema spokeswoman mary sims. thanks for joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> are you baking in this weather? we do have unseasonable cold temperatures and despite that people are buying flood insurance. war the numbers. >> as rosemary says the rain is on the way. so we have seen a huge increase now up to more than 285,000 people in california who have purchased flood insurance and just in that four month span we saw an increase of 55,000 policies being purchased and credit that to the media and the increased awareness of the risk of flooding. >> go ahead. >> in nonel nino 'flood insurance is the most costly and fatal insurance we purchase. >> and what else about the fact
4:44 pm
that there's 25% uptake. >> people didn't realize the standard homeowner's policies didn't cover flood insurance and people are taking steps and concrete steps to prepare themselves by purchases flood insurance but we have heard anecdotally that they are making communication plans and creating emergency kids and we at fema like that because we want the nation to be more resilient when we are recovering and what people do in advance makes a huge difference after how they recover. >> i have been on stories where fema has arrived and when there's not a disaster that is when you are working hardest. >> absolutely. and one of the things we say about this, flooding, and at el nino events, flood insurance is driven and not disaster driven. to get fema assistance requires a presidential declaration and entire county but you as a
4:45 pm
member of whatever street or town you live in, you can have 6-inches of water and you would not have fema insurance but with flood insurance would you have coverage. >> can't wait for a presidential declaration and doesn't happen often. we don't get inundated with flooding that often. >> absolutely. >> what about this steering committee? >> we will be having a steering committee meeting and many of the federal partners at the federal and in the state and local levels and also fema likes to call it the whole community. it brings in the partners from voluntary organizations like the red cross to get together and advance on a catastrophic eat vent and serious planning
4:46 pm
and they will look at the operational plan from events like the super bowl where fema was involved in supporting the plans and severe response plan and that task force is looking at the plan to improve it and mitigate. >> one thing i learned last tight and i want to tell my viewers when you buy the flood insurance, usually you are not covered. it takes awhile, if we get hit with a storm say march 5th maybe you won't be covered if you bought the insurance tomorrow. >> absolutely. it takes 30 day force the policy to go in effect. super important for people to take that action and like last time. flood insurance starts at $129 a year that live in low to moderate flood areas. mary sims, thanks for coming in. as keba said, rain is on the way or rosemary told us. >> yes. maybe you can tell us, how many
4:47 pm
string of days with the sun, at least a week or two? >> yes. the last rain event on the 3rd. >> i knew would you know. the 3rd so it is hard to believe but it is cooling down. >> yes. snow for the sierra. it is all good. giving a look at the numbers. we have outside our door right now, san francisco, oakland, mountain view, san jose all looking at breaking records this afternoon. we will have the final tally as we get in the 5:00 hour and santa rosa 75. san jose 78 outside your door. the numbers definitely on the warm side for this time of year. but you know what? most of us cooler than yesterday. in any event this will be the warmest day of the next several. we have big changes coming as early as tomorrow. the temperatures will cool back quite a bit. the afternoon highs in the 60s
