7:00 am
waking up with us. i'm pam cook in for gasia for this hour. it's monday, september 12th. >> i'm dave clark. let's check your weather. steve do you think you can find some wind and sun for us today. >> i can find both. i'm going to share a quick story. black island, coming down the trail, a good tarantula that big, right in front of me. >> that big? >> he likes tarantulas, though. >> very cool. >> it is not the adjective i'd use. >> gave me a jolt. if you're out hiking for some, they are there. i did take a picture of it. i'll get to it, pam. >> all right. for some, it will be not too bad today. for others it will p windy. it will -- it will be windy. it will be cooler for everybody. the fog is going to get wiped out. the breeze is picking up for many. the rams and 49ers tonight.
7:01 am
i would expect tailgaters a breezy day, partly sunny, mostly sunny, most of the low cloud deck should get out of there. it won't feel as you were like. it will feel fall like. temperatures coming down, san jose, 76 yesterday. 70 today. livermore down to 72. redwood city from 75 yesterday, 68 today. and some areas of drizzle being reported. the sierra, they're itching. they're rearing to go, but it will probably be tomorrow on the thunderstorm activity. it's getting close. there's a pretty good breeze for some. not for all, but it will be a breezy day even if you have the sunshine. 50s to start. east bay temp, 60s and 70s. it's getting close for the sierra tomorrow. i would expect big boomers. that low right there is playing into our weather today and tomorrow to kick out on wednesday. 60s and 70s. sal, we have two games tonight. >> that's right. >> steelers and the redskins, and then the 49ers and the rams. >> and we just want to let you
7:02 am
know that the parking lots associated with levi stadium, they open 3 1/2 hours before the game. that makes tonight's parking lot opening 3:50. >> yes. >> so if it was a single header, monday night football, i think they would play at 6:00, right. >> i agree. and the tailgating, you're miles away. they won't let you tailgate. >> you have to be kind of far away, but anyway, i mean, the traffic getting there is going to be the story this afternoon. so you might want to think about using public transportation if you can. all right. let's go out and take a look at the commute here on the east shore freeway. interstate 80. 41 minute drive time between the carcinas bridge and the macarthur maze. there's last few weeks we have seen it go up an hour, hour and 10 minutes. 40 minutes as you drive out to the macarthur maze, as you get to the bay bridge toll plaza, you will see traffic is backed up another 20 minutes. if you're driving from vallejo
7:03 am
to san francisco, this is a 1 1/2 hour adventure for you. we are seeing slow traffic on highway 4. 680 and highway 24. the whole region is getting slow. the only bright spot is between walnut creek and danville. as we continue going farther snow, to fremont, we have a very slow traffic commute here heading south, and the nimitz freeway is getting slow. we have a lot of slow traffic everywhere this morning. it's one of those mondays, this is a new normal. 7:0 #. let's go back -- 7:03. let's go back to the desk. hillary clinton is canceling her visit to the bay area that had been planned for today. she collapsed during an event in new york city yesterday. her campaign revealed she's being threated for pneumonia. ktvu's alex savidge joining us live in san francisco telling us about the scheduled fundraiser that mrs. clinton will now miss. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to
7:04 am
you. hillary clinton because of health concerns will not be making the trip here to the bay area. we understand that she may call in to this event later today. it's a high dollar fundraiser happening here at the me messonic in san francisco. some donors have spent a hundred thousand dollars to get inside. this shows hillary clinton almost collapsing since she left a 9/11 ceremony in new york. her campaign initially blamed the week, and while it was a hot week in new york, yesterday was actually quite comfortable. later in the day, the campaign revealed the candidate had been diagnosed with pneumonia days earlier. clinton's health has become an issue in weeks past after she had several coughing attacks out on the campaign trail, and some critics say that clinton's team has not been entirely forthcoming. >> when she nearly collapses and then has to pretend that it's overheating on a beautiful
7:05 am
september day, and then admitted she was diagnosed days ago, it looks like she's never going to tell the truth. >> reporter: later in the day, clinton was seen in new york walking around on her own and said she was feeling better. her doctors say she has been prescribed antibiotics and is now recovering nicely. clinton's republican rival donald trump attended the same 9/11 event yesterday in new york but he did not comment on her health. clinton is taking a break from campaigning. it's unclear how long that break will be. she will not be in attendance for the fundraiser in san francisco later today. the event is supposed to go on as planned, and it's possible the democratic nominee will be calling into the event, making an appearance, but not in attendance. >> not physically there. alex savidge in san francisco. thank you. our question of the day is about this story, is the health of candidates an issue that should be discussed during the
7:06 am
campaign. let us know what you think by posting a comment on our ktvu facebook page. you can also tweet us with the hash tag ktvu. and our election coverage continues throughout the morning in our next hour, we will talk a political analyst joe tuman about hillary clinton's illness and what it means for the future of her campaign. we are following news from reno nevada where a federal investigator will be at the scene of a small plane crash that reportedly was headed to the bay area, crashed yesterday, and killed three people on board. the reno gazette journal reports the plane, a piper cherokee was heading for san carlos. it crashed into a parking lot at reno tahoe international airport at about 6:15 last night just after takeoff. no one on the ground was hurt but at least 15 cars were damaged. no word yet on what causinged that crash. it was one year ago today that the valley fire erupted in lake county, killing four
7:07 am
people and causing widespread destruction. the fire burned 7600 achier 7600 -- acres and destroyed 1200 homes. it's estimated 40% of the homes that were lost in the fire will be rebuilt. we talked to one man, this man, who says he's just now moving back into his home in middletown. >> we go to these meetings and they would say one thing, and turn around and do another thing, and the playing field is not level for everybody. it's real agonizing and heartbreaking. there's not a night that doesn't go by that you don't think about it. >> at least 50% of the people are gone. they have either bought elsewhere. it's such a horrible long process. >> reporter: now, some people say the cost of rebuilding is more than the homes are worth when they're finished so for those who don't have insurance, they just can't afford to rebuild. some have moved to other parts of lake county, away from the fire zone. others decided to leave the
7:08 am
county all together. our coverage of the first anniversary of the valley fire continues all day long on air, online, and anchor ken wayne returns to lake county to see how the area is recovering and if people feel it will ever be the same again. berkeley police are asking for your help with an unsolved killing that happened six years ago today. aldolpho solodon, a $15,000 reward is being offered in the case. two of the three defendants of killing a hiker hiker and canadian tourist are due back in court. charged with killing steve carter who was walking his dog on a marin county trail, and killing audrey kari killed in
7:09 am
golden gate park last year. the third defendant agreed to a plea deal and will testify against the other two. that led a judge to postpone the hearing to give defense attorneys more time to prepare. today's hearing is expected to involve legal motions and the preliminary hearing is set to resume next monday. time is 7:09. b.a.r.t. is warning about delays in the east bay during certain times this week. there could be delays of up potato 30 minutes between the south hayward, and freeway -- delays of up to 30 minutes between the south hayward and fremont stations. the delays are expected to start between 9:30:00 a.m. and 2:30:00 p.m., and also between 9:00 p.m. until closing time. it is 7:09. and tonight, the 49ers will play their first really season game, but all eyes will be on colin kaepernick. coming up in 20 minutes, how his national anthem protest is
7:10 am
spreading through the nfl and security impact at levi stadium. it's the health issues for people that responded or that work there. >> we are now hearing from a bay area fire chief who helped with the recovery at ground zero after the september 11th september 11th attacks. the health issues he and others are dealing with 15 years later. good morning, we are still looking at very slow traffic that doesn't seem to be moving well at all westbound on the san mateo bridge as you head out to the high ride. well, plenty of low clouds, but there's also a decent breeze to down right windy conditions for some, and it's going to be a very cool pattern for us this time of year. we'll have the number coming up.
7:11 am
7:12 am
welcome back to mornings on 2. it is 7:12, and around the world, people marks the 15th 15th anniversary of the
7:13 am
september 11th terror attacks. this is the tribute in light. the 9/11 memorial museum in new york city. >> now, it's made up of 88 search lights in place of where the twin towers once stood. those lights shine brightly in the lower manhattan skyline each year on the anniversary. >> and a reporter, has more on the memorial held yesterday for the nearly 3000 victims. >> reporter: thousands gathering at ground zero in new york city to remember the lives lost in the september 11th terror attacks. family members reading the names of the almost 3000 victims. governor andrew cuomo announcing new york state will be building a monument to 9/11 first responders, paying tribute to those who lost their lives as well as survivors who continue to suffer from health related issues. >> you will never be alone. especially the people we lost on 9/11, and the hundreds and
7:14 am
hundreds of people who helped on 9/11 and have gotten sick since. >> reporter: at the pentagon, president obama placing a wreath of white lilies in the memorial garden. 184 people died when american airlines flight 77 slammed into the building. >> we remember, and we will never forget the nearly 3000 beautiful lives taken from us so cruelly. >> reporter: at the flight 93 national memorial in shanksville, pennsylvania, the 40 passengers and crew members of the hijacked plane that crashed are honored with a reading of names and tolling of bells. >> remember, the lessons we learned as a community, as a country, as a world, we stand stronger together. >> reporter: smaller tributes were held overseas, u.s. and nato forces marked the solemn day with a ceremony at the nato headquarters in kabul. outside of jerusalem, a ceremony was held at the jff memorial.
7:15 am
it's the only monument outside the u.s. that lists the names of the nearly 3000 victims lost in the attacks. homeland security secretary jeh johnson says the united states is now safer against 9/11 type terror attacks but the nation must remain vigilant against the lone wolf style strikes. a remnant of the world trade center towers will be put on display at the san francisco fire department headquarters. the piece of steel from one of the two towers was unveiled by mayor ed lee and the city's fire chief and acting police chief during his san antonio yesterday. the 4-foot long piece of rusted steel will go on display of the lobby of the fire department headquarters. it will be a memorial to the first responders who died on september 11th. there were other bay area commemorations yesterday where people reflected on the sacrifices made and the lives lost in the attacks. hundreds of people marched in san jose in memory of the day. >> and people who were at the world trade center in the first
7:16 am
few days after the twin towers collapsed have some of the strongest memories and physical reminders of their time at ground zero. menlo park fire chief and his rescue team were among those called in to come help. he says as the team headed home, 70% complained of prolonged coughing, pneumonia, and serious rashes. now many of those people have long-term respiratory problems and cancers. the chief says now environmental experts are apologizing for not warning the crews about the dangers they were exposed to. >> they didn't necessarily tell us, you know, the effects or the knowledge that they had, and you know, it's water under the bridge, but that's still unacceptable to me, but i don't think it was the right decision for the people on the pile who were working there every day. it's the only event that we have ever gone from the minimum level of respiratory protection and added more later on in the event while we were there, and
7:17 am
we all knew as soon as that happened, something was dramatically wrong. >> now, he also says now crews have better equipment, and there's better monitoring for people who are exposed to debris in a disaster and that's a result of what health experts learned from the crews who became sick after 9/11. a photo of a tennessee firefighter honoring the victims and first responders of september 11th has gone viral. take a look. this picture is of jason harding. it was posted yesterday morning. he went to a gym fully suited in his fire fighting gear and asked if he could climb 110 sets of stairs, to honor his brothers and sisters of 9/11. she took the photo, posted it on her facebook page, and that post has been shared more than 140,000 times. >> pam, look at that. >> since yesterday. >> what an amazing small gesture that makes such a big
7:18 am
impact. >> there's nothing more to say. it is 7:17. let's get you to where you need to go, sal. hour commute, how does it look. it's not too bad. it's normally slow in many areas. we don't have any unusual slowdowns. ic if -- i think if you drive every day you're going to be seeing highway 24 look like this on the way to the tunnel. slow traffic in lafayette, before you make it to the tunnel in oakland, slow traffic waiting for you as well. the bay bridge, there's a big backup here, about 25 minutes before you make it onto the span and that's just counting from the time you get in line at the macarthur maze, so it's going to be one of those commutes that's going to be busy. the east bay really is slow. 238 is where 880 slows down into fremont, and union city. 680 is especially slow this morning driving out of pleasanton. by the time you reach fremont, it looks okay. i want to remind you that tonight at 7:20, the 49ers game at levi stadium. if you commute on 237, especially if you drive there
7:19 am
every day, back and forth. today you're going to have plenty of company in the afternoon, more than usual. plan an alternate or use public transportation. if you are getting to the game, the parking lot's at the game do not open until 3:50 because kickoff is at 7:20. 7:19 now, so 12 hours from now, they will be playing football at levi stadium. >> i know what i'll be doing then, watching on television. can't go to monday night games, you know that. >> can't go. >> we'll get to it here. we have our 49er football forecast for tonight pretty good low dropping in to be honest with you for this time of year. and it's going to give us a rather cool pattern for a couple of days, through wednesday morning, and we'll start to see temperatures rebound. there are breaks in the low clouds. tomorrow it will get chewed up. mostly clear, maybe some partly cloudy, but a cool and breezy to blustery pattern. temperatures will drop quick
7:20 am
here. the highs only going to be 70 degrees. san francisco, 62. what's average, 70. that's way below. and san jose should be 83 this time of year. we're going 70 and that temp will plunge i think once we get towards tonight. it's jacket weather. good morning, steve, cold, windy this morning. cold and windy. they have been on vacation for a while. cool and breezy around once and a while, but cold and windy hasn't been here for a while. some of the higher elevations out to the delta, the usual suspects here. gusts at 40 at the altamont pass. 41, 50s on the temps, low, a few 40s in the mix. 50s on the peninsula. atherton, los altos, both 51. don't usually see that. thunderstorm activity yesterday, for us it's about the fog bank and low clouds. the key on the entire pattern is, it's coming over land.
7:21 am
if it was coming over water that would be better to have more moisture. it has a dryer air mass working with it. unseasonly cool air aloft. where as it sets up the is key. i have seen some projectionings over the north bay -- projections, over the north bay. my guess is it would be somewhere in the middle. that would give thunderstorm activity as the low drops south it will crank up the wind. 60s and 70s. gusts to 40 for some. shower activity will be a no doubter up in the sierra, especially on tuesday and maybe for us. i would think north and east. 60s, 70s. i even went 79 in clear lake. 75 in antioch. 73 in walnut creek with a breeze. 70s from santa fe, and 60s on the coast. mainly on the peninsula. about the same tomorrow. if we get any shower activity in the afternoon, mendocino county, lake county look like the best bet.
7:22 am
cold wednesday morning, and rebounding as we head through the week. >> wednesday, like, cold, cold, cold. >> i think in wind protected areas, north bay, upper 30s. >> we're done, because i hinted i was going to be out on the bay. i posted a couple pictures, my daughter's birthday, and we did a sunset cruise, captain maggie, very fun. bring it on in now steve. >> all those outdoors activities are good now. >> the important outdoor activities are done. >> i heard you say you were disappointed they didn't go under the golden gate bridge. you don't want to go under unless you're prepared. >> one of the captains said it's a little windy and choppy. we got close. it was gorgeous. the fog was, you could see the bottom part of the golden gate bridge. a couple people on board were tourists and they were taking pictures and they were saying, that's the golden gate bridge, right, because you could barely see the bottom. bring on the rain.
7:23 am
we're ready. the financial impact of samsung galaxy note 7 recall is being felt this morning. coming up in 15 minutes, the fall out and investor worries linked to the product being billed as the best smart phone ever. officials are investigating a possible arson of a mosque, how that mosque is connected to the orlando nightclub shooter. ♪ ♪keep on the sunny side ♪always on the sunny side

7:32 am
let's talk about the weather in the stadium, and the bay area. >> breezy to windy. it's going to be cooler for sure. >> bundle up. >> yeah, tonight definitely into tomorrow morning. i think you'll notice it. it might even be mostly clear by tonight. the low cloud deck dancing around . and already been that way. now, again, depends on where you sit. sometimes inside it's not that battleground. i would lean on a cooler forecast. that's what we're doing, dropping temps, redwood city 68. livermore 72. san jose at 70. these are way below normal for inland temps and about 7, 8 degrees below normal coast and bay. sierra nevada we'll deal with thunderstorm activity. a rather good breeze for many. 50s on the temps. a lot of 40s this morning. sierra nevada getting ready. tomorrow looks to be the main day for thunderstorm activity. that happens for us, i would think, north and east, we'll tackle that. the main message is the low dropping in right there. probably will favor the mother

7:34 am
that's on the shoulder but the traffic is going to be slow. once you get into the south bay, it does look okay. we want to mention that the east bay commute southbound 880 slows right at 238 and it's solid all the way down to stevenson. very few, if any, breaks. dunbar ton, and san mateo bridge traffic is going to be slow as you drive through,s and also, i want to mention the traffic is going to be busy this afternoon of course. anywhere near levi stadium, the parking lot's open at 3:50 today. let's go back to the desk. >> sal, thank you. happening today, if you live or work in oakland, you're invited to share your opinion on the qualities you want to see in the new police chief of oakland city leaders have been meeting with teenagers asking them what priorities they want for the new chief, but tonight's meeting would start to tip the clock. it's open to the entire community. that meeting will be held at the north oakland senior center on martin luther king way. the city plans to hold several public forums. the mayor says two citizens
7:35 am
will also be part of the process of selecting a new police chief. meantime, the alameda county district attorney says there's a strummabling block -- stumbling block in charging 7 east bay law enforcement officers in a growing sex scandal. they are accused of having sex with a teenage girl who goes by the name celeste guap. ms. guap is right now in jail in florida after assaulting a police officer there. the da says she needs guap to be here in the bay area in order to arrest and charge the officers who were accused or the case could fall apart. ms. guap claims she had sex with more than two dozen local officers over the past two years, including when she was under the age of 18. this morning, intense training for police officers at the urban shield training event wraps up in the east bay. law enforcement teams from around the bay area, the country, and even overseas have been running through a grueling series of challenges in dublin. organizers say the urban shield

7:37 am
quarterback colin kaepernick plans to continue his protest during the national anthem. ktvu's janine de la vega is at levi stadium right now in santa clara, and janine, the coach of the other team has pretty strong feelings about this anthem issue, right. >> reporter: yeah, he does. they are playing against the la rams, and that coach has been very specific in giving instructions to his players in the past. he's lectured them about how much respect he has for the national anthem, how he wants them to stand. so it's going to be really interesting to see if any others are going to join kaepernick in his protest tonight at the game. now, during the preseason, the 49ers colin kaepernick did not stand as the national anthem played. he says he's protesting the oppression of people of color in the u.s. and police brutality. yesterday, though, players from multiple teams across the country followed his lead. as the anthem played before the seattle seahawks and miami dolphins game, seahawks players
7:38 am
locked arms and four dolphins ended up taking a knee, and during the kansas city chief's home opener, some players linked arms while one raised his fist in the air. in a later game, two new england patriots players also raised their firsts in solidarity. some fans, though, they questioned the timing. >> 9/11's going right now, and there's a lot of people that lost their lives, and they should have a little bit more respect than that. >> if anyone wants to protest, i support them to do what they want. >> reporter: there were earlier talks that santa clara police officers would boycott the games, and not provide security but that seems to be squashed now. the police officers association says while it feels the 49ers are ignoring their concerns regarding kaepernick's actions, they will support officers who voluntarily work at games. we're told there will be enough security and that people should feel safe. >> janine de la vega, thank you. the oakland raiders started
7:39 am
their season with a thriller win. they beat the new orleans saints 35-34 h. rookie jalen rashard tied. it was a 7-yard touchdown run on his first ever nfl carry p the saints took -- carry. the saints took the lead back, and instead of kicking the extra point for the tie, head coach jack del rio went for the lead. carr found michael crabtree in the end zone for the go ahead 2 point conversion, and the saints had a plan to win, but the kicker mix the 61-yard field goal try. >> i let him know early in the drive, when we go score here, we're going to go for two. and we're going to win it right here. >> it's that kind of belief, and that kind of, you know, trust that coach has in us that gives us so much confidence. when that comes from the top down, as a player new york city matter your position, it makes you want to fight for him. it makes you want to play for
7:40 am
him. when he did that, we're going to go down the field score, and go for two, yes, sir. >> the raiders home opener, by the way, is sunday against the atlanta falcons. time is 7:40. in south korea, samsung is getting hit hard after owners of galaxy note 7 phones were told to turn them off immediately. samsung stock is at the lowest level in two months equate to go a $14 billion loss in the overall value. the concern is about the batteries that may burst into flames. samsung says it sold 2 1/2 million phones. they're going to have to be replaced. tech analysts say after the battery issue is resolved, the note 7's won't sell as well as they did. hillary clinton's doctor says she has pneumonia. how her health is affecting the presidential candidate's planned visit to the bay area

7:46 am
drunk driver at 3:00 in the afternoon, and caused this devastation, people lost their homes, it's beyond maddening. it is an insult to jury. >> cal fire says that shasta -- injury. cal fire says that shasta fire is 98% contained. which homes can be saved and which have to be sacrificed. i went on a ride along with fire crews in marin county as they explained the process of making that difficult decision. there are some factors that homeowners can control that greatly influence that decision. and my story on that is tonight on our 10:00 news. you can see what those factors are. we're also going to show that story tomorrow morning right here on mornings on 2, and talk about some of the things. as i said before, eye opening as to what could cause your home to be passed up by firefighters if a wildfire is moving in. >> that is wild.
7:47 am
7:46. exactly is right over there. you're watching highway 24, and everything else. >> that's right. we have a lot of slow traffic all over the place. although we haven't had any major problems. we have had a couple of issues here and there. it's one of the commute times or commutes that people are out there this morning. this is highway 24 westbound, as you drive to the tunnel. it's going to be very slow. i've been looking at contra costa, chp lists and we haven't had that much going on. 680 is slow from 242 as you head to the walnut creek interchange. we are looking at the bay bridge toll plaza, and the traffic here is going to be slow, about a 25 minute delay. san mateo and dunbar to know bridge commutes are begun -- dumbarton bridge commutes are not going to be easy. this afternoon a lot of traffic going the other way. you may see people going up to the dumbarton bridge, westbound, just before 101 is word of a crash there.
7:48 am
there's been slow traffic. i had a tweet from a young lady, who said this commute on 580 out of castro valley has become brutal. remember when that used to be the alternate for 880. i would not consider it an alternate township. it's just as slow. 7:48. let's bring in steve. >> why do you think that is, sal. >> just more volume. there's really nowhere else for the traffic to go. >> makes sense. thank you, sir. let's get to it. we have a football forecast here. might want to grab the jacket. it's not going to be hot. that's for sure. breezy, maybe blustery at times. pretty good breeze down there now. temperatures starting, 63. not be surprised if it got in the upper 50s. sometimes this time of year is hot. that will not be the case.
7:49 am
i would lean on the cooler, breezy pattern. average is 83. that is way below 101 back in 979. the record high. chloe loves clouds in clear lake. still have ten more days. 51, clear, 8 miles per hour east breeze in clear lake as sunrises high. 78 to 80. i went 79. we're in the ballpark. we get the low cloud deck. keeping an eye on the sierra, they're in the best opportunity. they will have the best opportunity for shower activity. good breeze, 28 miles per hour. davis point, travis and 43 at the altamont pass, gusts there. 50s on the temps, low mid-to a few upper. if you get the southeast breeze, might be more on the mild side. sarasota is 52. campbell is 57. santa clara is close. 56 degrees. and there is a southeast breeze, san jose up to 15.
7:50 am
more of a west, southwest, sfo, hayward, and livermore. the sierra yesterday got close. now it will be coming from the north, as the low comes in over land it has enhanced that fog bank, and whether is it going to end up -- where is it going to end up. probably close tore tahoe, truckee, bottom out tomorrow morning. if we get shower activity, mendocino county, lake county, 60s, 70s on the temps, inland temps should be about 83 to 85. not even close today. 60s and 70s on many temps. that includes the santa clara valley, the low cloud deck might be slow to burn off. the coast will be clear as the system drops in, and chews up the fog bank. windy, possibility of showers north and east. a chilly wednesday morning, and then sunshine and warmer temps will take us into the end of the week and the weekend. >> did you say the coast is clear. >> it will be tomorrow. time 7:50. it took billions of dollars in investments, coming up, why the

7:55 am
towns. there's evidence they supported kurdish militants. millions of muslims made a pilgrimage in saudi arabia. it is settlemented that 2 million people made the journey to the holy city of mecca. the muslims are required to make this pilgrimage once in their lifetime. bay area muslims will begin a celebration marking the end of hag. several mosque and religious centers will honor what's known as the festival of sacrifice. the san ramon valley, the islamic center, south bay islamic association and west valley muslim association are just some of the places hosting events. well, for sale, 1600 acres of water front property in alabama. it has a rare feature on the land. that is an unfinished nuclear power plant. now, the work on the bellefonte plant started more than 40
7:56 am
years ago but the work stopped in 1988. the project was never finished because there was never enough demand to make the power plant necessary. now the utility is trying to get back some of the money by selling that land. >> our initial bid starts at 36.4 million. what we want to be able to see over time with the spend plan and the economic development plan is how we're going to get that $5 billion that we have innovated into this facility back over time. >> now, the current owner is the largest utility in the nation. bids are due today. they're hoping to close a sale by next month. so far, though, only one company from nevada has expressed interest. phoenix energy says it's looking at possibly using the land for all thetive energy production. -- alternative energy production. time to check in with mike and pam. >> dave, thank you. hillary clinton nearly collapses after leaving a nine memorial event in new york city. what her campaign is now saying

. concerns about hillary clinton's health, when she nearly collapses in new york city. the fundraiser in san francisco she won't be attending as a result. it's one year ago that the valley fire erupted. the reason some people who lost their homes say they won't rebuild. it's all ahead here on mornings on 2. this is ktvu mornings on 2. >> and good morning, everyone. welcome back to mornings on 2. it is monday, september 12th. i'm mike mibach. >> good morning, i'm pam cook. gasia is off today, but let's check in with steve paulson. a little bit of sunlight peeking through the dark clouds over here. >> there will be a mix of low clouds and the sunshine, you guys. it's also going to be a cooler pattern. the wind has picked up for some. a breezy, blustery day today. i would consider a breezy cooler forecast as well out on the northwest, maybe gusts
8:01 am
about to 20 -- 20, 25. temperatures on sunday, and they are taking a little bit of a dip today. 78 napa. livermore 72. san jose 70. those are all down about 5 or 6 degrees from yesterday. the fog is there. there are some breaks in it. the sierra will probably deal with thunderstorm activity tomorrow. for us, already gusts to 31 in travis. 43 at the altamont pass, low, mid, upper 50s. glen allen is 51. calistoga 49. the fog will disappear tomorrow as this low swings in. it will probably be closer to around the mother load or sacramento east is where the core is going to go. just a little bit too far to the east. a cooler, breezy to windy pattern with 60s and 70s. what do you have, sir. we are looking at a commute that's going to be busy in the south bay. steve, we have a lot of slow traffic in san jose.
8:02 am
we had an accident northbound 101 at the 80 interchange. that is in an area that's very slow. and could affect 880 northbound coming past the airport. an accident, 237 at 101. a new crash southbound 680 reported at mckee. so all of a sudden we have a lot going on, and the traffic is going to be super slow on 85. we haven't had any crashes there in the last half hour. every freeway is slow, and remember this evening there's a game at levi stadium, kick off 7:20. that's going to add to the people who are using the south bay freeways, and it's going to be kind of a tough one on a monday for the silicone valley commute. let's talk about the san mateo bridge, seeing slow traffic there heading out to the high ride, dumbarton bridge super slow, getting over to east palo alto. a 20 minute delay, still slow on 80 getting down to this
8:03 am
spot. 8:02. let's go back to the desk. >> thank you. democratic presidential nominee hillary clinton is cancel ago visit to the bay area because of concerns about her health after she nearly collapsed during an event in new york city yesterday. >> now her campaign is revealing she's recovering from pneumonia. ktvu's alex savidge out in infant this morning with more on the -- san francisco this morning with more on the fundraiser she was supposed to attend. >> reporter: she will not make the trip to the bay area as she continues continues to recover. she may appear remotely. this is going to be a high dollar fundraiser that will still go on as planned later tonight here at the masonic in san francisco. some donors have spent as much as $100,000 to be on hand at the event. this happened yesterday, hillary clinton nearly collapsed as she left a 9/11 ceremony in new york. her campaign initially blamed
8:04 am
the heat, and while it had been a hot week in new york, yesterday was actually quite comfortable. now, later in the day, clinton's campaign revealed that the candidate had been diagnosed with pneumonia days earlier. clinton's health has become somewhat of an issue in weeks past. she had several coughing attacks speaking on the campaign trail. >> as a political adviser, i would say keep her off the campaign trail until the debatings as much as possible -- debates as much as possible. >> how can you do that. >> you just say no. >> reporter: after she nearly collapsed early in the day, later on hillary clinton was seen walking around in new york and her doctors say that she has been prescribed antibiotics and is recovering nicely. clinton's republican rival donald trump was also in attendance at that same 9/11 event yesterday in new york city. he has not commented on hillary
8:05 am
clinton's health situation. again, clinton is taking a break from campaigning for the time being. it's unclear exactly how long that break will last. this fundraiser in san francisco at the masonic will go on as planned later on today, but hillary clinton will not be p attendance. back to you guys. >> -- not be in attendance. back to you guys,. >> alex savidge live. and now joining us joe tuman, most americans don't find her honest and trust worthy. why hide this pneumonia diagnosis. they had the coughing fits, rubbed it off as allergies and now all of a sudden this new week we're finding it's pneumonia. >> let's remember a couple of things. though she is running for office which makes her a public person and we want to know who we're voting for, most people don't talk about their health issues with other people. there's a natural inclination to be reserved about this. and in the context of this political race, this isn't just
8:06 am
competition. it's blood support. and any sign of weakness is an advantage for your opponent. if mr. trump had a similar kind of frailty, i can guarantee he would not disclose it unless he was forced to. in the history of presidential elections, it's been common to have candidates get sick. john f kennedy had illnesses, and richard nixon into the first presidential debate had spent time in the hospital for gout, and went to do the first presidential debate and when he saw kennedy, tan from being in california, and offered makeup, nixon said i didn't want any either. he spent time in the hospital and looked pail and sick, and -- pale and sick. and most people thought he lost because of how he looked. >> i don't think it's a crime to be sick but should she not reveal medical records. that's the point. trump this morning said on fox, now he says in regards to after the story, should they both reveal. >> right. i think it's ultimately a decision every individual has
8:07 am
to make, but it's not an irrelevant issue. let's put it this way, the health. the presidency, if you look the at recent presidents, is a highly stressful job. president obama, he has aged more than four years. >> we have watched them age, and you brought up a good point, the race for the presidency is grueling. who knows how much they are sleeping and the demands on them. that doesn't seem to be surprised that they got sick. is it surprising the reaction, oh, it's another indication she's not honest. >> i think the people that don't like hillary clinton have already decided how they're going to vote, and they will probably interpret almost anything she does as more evidence that reinforces their view of her. by the way, i would make a similar claim for people who don't make donald trump. anybody he says probably will be treated equally. i should say by the way to your point about running for office.
8:08 am
i ran twice. first time i ran, i lost 17 pounds in that election, and not on purpose. i did it because you're going from one meeting to the next, very little sleep. my wife had to yell at my campaign manager, because i wasn't eating. no time. i was running for mayor of a city. scale up to running for the presidency of a country of several hundred million people with everybody around the world watching you. it's surprising that more people don't get walking pneumonia, frankly in this environment. it's really really hard, and i would hope that people, even if they want to see her cynically as not being honest, have empathy that running for office like this is hard. it doesn't give her a pass. >> but it's crunch time now. weave got the debate 8 weeks away. do you tell her to stay inside and not travel the country. >> i would tell her to listen to her doctor for a couple of weeks. ultimately your health is more
8:09 am
important than this job in the end and if she wants to be on her best in two for the first presidential debate when she doesn't want to follow the lesson of richard nixon, showing and trying to go at it when you're looking your best, you want to rest up and be ready to go. maybe the campaign should reach out to the commission, and talk about the possibility of shifting. >> if they give the medical records, i think this would all go away is health records in particular are something that people are a little more careful about or discreet about. but having said that, if both sides do it, then there's no advantage for one of the other. >> do you think it hurts her campaign if she sits out for two weeks before the debate to rest up. >> it will reinforce the appearance of her not being around and, perhaps extends the questions about her illness.
8:10 am
if she continues to appear and has another episode like yesterday, the video was damaging. it wasn't damaging. not helpful to her point that i'm healthy and ready to go. if more of those things happen, they can do more damage than a poor to date performance. i think it's important for her to get rest. >> that's why it's our question of the day, is the health of the candidates an issue that should be discussed during the campaign. let us know what you think by posting a comment on the ktvu facebook page. tweet us, make sure to use the hash tag ktvu. >> it's an interesting topic. it was one year ago today that the valley fire erupted in lake county killing four people, causing widespread destruction. the fire burned 76 acres. it was the third most destructive fire in california history. it's estimated 40% of the homes lost in the fire will be
8:11 am
rebuilt. we talked to one man who says he's just now moving back into his home in middletown. >> we go to these meetings and they would say one thing, and turn around and do another thing. the playing field is not level for everybody. there's not a night that goes by that you don't think about it or deal with it the next day. >> at least 50% of the people have gone and bought elsewhere. just such a horrible long process. >> some people say the cost of rebuilding is more than the homes are worth when they're finished. so for those who didn't have insurance, they just can't afford to rebuild. some have moved to other parts of lake county, away from the fire zone. others have decided to leave the county all together. now, our coverage of the first anniversary of the valley fire continues all day long here on air, and online, and tonight on our 10:00 news. anchor ken wayne returns to lake county to see how the area is recovering and also to talk
8:12 am
to people to see if they feel the area will be the same again: it was a big win for the raiders yesterday, and a new season begins for the 49ers tonight. much of the focus is what happens before the game. a live report from levi stadium. also,. >> not only are you there, you're look at it first on television, and you're there, and they tell you that, you know, it was surreal in a lot of ways. >> looking back 15 years since the september 11th attacks. now we're finding out what some of the first responders were fold might happen in the first few days of the recovery effort.

settle by tomorrow. 50s or low 60s. upper 50s menlo park. woodside 57. i think tomorrow is the day for them to get the thunderstorm activity. we get the cooler, breezy, to windy pattern. there's the low beginning to move in. looks like it's about to take the turn though. looks like the bottom will settle in the valley. if you are heading up north, don't be surprised showers pop up tomorrow. today is a hold onto your hat kind of day. low clouds, sunny to breezy with 60s and 70s. what would you say on the commute, sal, b plus, b minus? >> i would give it like a little bit less than average. i mean, the south bay commute. in fact, let's start at the south bay, shall we. let's do this. let's do this is what i'm
8:32 am
saying. southbound 280 on the left. 280 is improving, so the commute is getting better but i will show you why i gave it such a bad grade, c minus. those grades wouldn't have flown with my parents, let me tell you. 101, slow as you drive past the expressway into mountain view. that is worst than it normally is. 280 has a break where i showed you, but it's slow up to the psychiatry, and 85 is all slow. very very slow traffic on the commute, and remember, tonight, because of that 49ers football game that we talked about in this area, it's going to be very slow going. the other way, this way, out towards 101. i'm sorry, out away from 101 toward 880 and 680. let's go and look at live pictures. the bay bridge is backed up for a 15 to 20 minute delay. things are getting better. it has not been a great commute. 8:32, let's go back to the desk. >> as we mentioned, the 49ers kick off their season with a game at home tonight. before the game, though, a lot
8:33 am
of people will be watching to see if players join colin kaepernickcap and his protest during the national anthem. >> security going to be an issue or not tonight? >> reporter: we're being told by police, no, it will not be. while some of the officers they're not happy with kaepernick's actions during the national anthem, they say they're still going to show up and protect the public and the players. now, our cameras were there during sunday's games at various sports bars, and we watched fans reactions as more players decided to protest during the national anthem. as the national anthem plays in the seattle seahawks against, they locked arms and four dolphins took a knee. the kansas city chief players line of players -- linked arms and later in the evening, two new england patriots raised
8:34 am
their firsts in solidarity. all these players have decided to follow what 49er quarterback colin kaepernick has been doing during the preseason, refusing to stand in protest over racial inequality, and police brutality. >> i think it's good that athletes are coming together to support a cause. it doesn't affect athletes, it affects everybody affects. the more people are conscious about it, we can start doing something. >> reporter: kaepernick's protest has sparked talks of a possible boycott from the santa clara police officers working security at the game. last week the association says while it feels the 49ers are ignoring concerns, they are going to support officers who voluntarily work games, and we're told it will be adequately staffed and people who come should feel safe. mike. the oakland raiders started their season with a thrilling
8:35 am
win. they beat the new orleans saints 35-34. rookie jalen rashard tied the game with 8 minutes left. it was a 75-yard td run on his first ever nfl carry. the saints took the lead back. instead of kicking the extra point for the tie, head coach jack del rio, said he wanted to leave. in the end zone for the go ahead 2-point conversion. saints had a chance to win it, but kicker will lutz missed the field goal. >> i let him know early in the drive. when we score here, we're going for two, and we're going to win it right here. >> it's that kind of belief, and that kind of trust that coach has in us that gives us so much confidence. when that comes from the top down, as a player e it makes you want to fight for him, play for him. we're going down the field to
8:36 am
score for two, yes, sir. >> the raiders home opener is sunday against the atlanta falcons. 8:35 is the time. there's a lot going on in san jose. for one, the city council is considering some tough new gun laws for the city. >> for more on that and other stories in the south bay, we are joined by san jose mayor, sam sam licardo. >> happy to be with you. >> reporter: i want to read a couple highlights. it would require all gun owners to store guns inside a locked contain at home or disable with a trigger block. not just those with children at home. it would require ammunition vendors to record business owners to record all ammunition sales in electronic log. my question is some business owners say this is impractical, very difficult to enforce. do you agree or not with that? >> unfortunately it is a big
8:37 am
question. we know the state is thin in their ability to enforce exhausting gun laws, but really these are modest provisions, likely to pass. i think most folks would say, i'm a formal criminal prosecutor, and these kinds of changes have a bigger impact on press release than they do on policy. the difference between requiring someone to report a stolen handgun within 48 hours or five days is not enormous. the real challenge is sacramento and washington, d.c. have abadie caughted the responsibility -- about responsibility -- -- abdicated. and cities like san jose are struggling to make modest improvements and we're con strained by existing law, particularly the state prep --
8:38 am
>> i know the city council voted that it is a state of emergency, declared a state of emergency because of the police staffing shortage last week. i know that allows detectives to be moved onto the streets. is that going to help? what are your hopes for this? >> let me declare. we didn't declare a state of emergency. that's what you declare after a hurricane or major disaster. we invoked an emergency provision in state law that enables the police chief to have the authority to bypass the union contract to be able to move officers out into patrol. this is something we did with the consent of union leaders because we knew that the chief had to act quickly, and so really, this is really just about addressing our staffing challenge. it's a band-aid solution i think most of us would admit. what we have to do is get measure f passed in november. that's f as in frank. that's going to help us be able
8:39 am
to attract and recruit officers again in in department by for example strengthening provisions for disability for officers hurt in the line of duty. >> a matter of semantics, but the fact that you're saying it's an emergency situation. >> we use the term emergency because state law requires us to do that to bypass the restrictions from the contract. let's be clear, we have the lowest violent crime rate of any major city in the country. i don't want people to be alarmed that somehow or another violence is amuck. we know we have a challenge like every big city with crime and violence. but our serious challenge is making sure we can get officers on the street, and by passing measure f we can address that challenge. >> real quick mayor, our question of the day at ktvu is about the presidential candidates and whether or not they should release their medical records to the public. do you think they should, yes
8:40 am
or no? you know, i'm not sure it matters that much. i'm more interested in them releasing their tax returns to the public. i would like everyone to do that, and there's one particular candidate that hasn't done that yet. >> san jose state had a nice win. >> go spartans. mayor, i appreciate your time. >> thank you. it's always a pleasure. >> 8:40 is the time right now. the city of oakland is asking for public input as it searchings for a permanent police chief. city leaders have been meeting with teenager and asking about their priorityings for a new chief -- priorities for a new chief. it will be held the senior center on martin luther king way, and the city plans to hold several meetings. promises to have two citizens sit on the panel that selects the chief. the alameda district attorney says there's a stumbling block in charging officers in a sex scandal,
8:41 am
accused of having sex with a teenage girl named celeste guap. she is currently in a florida jail after biting a police officer. the da says she needs guap to be in the bay area to arrest and charge the officers or the case could fall apart. guap claims she had sex with two dozen local officers including when she was not 18 years old. there's awe new development in the freeway -- there's a new development in the freeway crash that killed a 3-year-old child. the driver of the suv that crashed into a car stalled on interstate 680 is the wife of an alameda county sheriff's deputy. she was arrested and charged with driving under the influence. a 3-year-old boy died in that crash. his mother is seriously injured. his 11-year-old brother and 1- year-old sister were also hurt in the crash. samsung problems went from bad to worse. up next, the financial fallout from the faulty phone batteries that can burst into flames
8:42 am
without warning. and audrie potts biological father plans to speak out today. the change he's pushing for in california's parental lots. we are looking at slow traffic. unfortunately it has not improvement that much on 24 or 680. we are seeing a little bit of light at the end of the tunnel so to speak. and when you get through the other side you might feel a cool breeze. very fall like the next couple of days. some breaks in the low clouds. it's a cooler pattern. we'll show you the numbers.

8:47 am
lost their homes, it's beyond maddening. it's insult to injury. >> cal fire says the shasta lake fire is now 90% contained. firefighters are often forced to make tough calls when battling a wildfire, including which homes can be saved and which homes they have to drive right on by. i went on a special ride along with fire crews in marin county as they explained the process of making that difficult decision. there are some things that homeowners can do and control that greatly influence that decision of whether or not your home is saved. my story is tonight on our 10:00 news. you can see what those factors are. we are also going to show it tomorrow morning, and talk about it during mornings on 2. again, it was very alarming to be able to hear the firefighters say we're going to pass by here. here, this home we can save. some good things to keep in
8:48 am
mind mind. >> tonight at ten. let's get over to sal. check the roadways. >> it's still slow if you're trying to make a decision as to whether to leave or wait it out. i can show you the toll plaza here and you can see that it's still a little bit slow in some of the lanes. it's improved quite a bit. when i see something like this, being the suspicious person that i am, i have to see is there something blocking traffic up the road or is it much better. i don't see anything in the way, so things are getting a little bit better. let's move along and look at 880 northbound. you'll see the traffic is moving along just a little bit slow past the coliseum we go to the maps, and i have seen some improvement here. now on 80. remember, 80 does lead to the bay bridge. slow from richmond to berkeley. still slow but at the bay bridge toll plaza, you saw it had lightened up. wait a little longer, that may clear out. 8:48. let's go to steve.
8:49 am
>> i'm suspicious, too, that didn't look right. >> and one last thing, the football game tonight, 2:37, 4:00, not the time to go for a leisurely drive over there. yeah, i think i'll drive around levi stadium. >> thank you, exactly. we'll get to that forecast, too. you know, this time of year, september you can bake at levi stadium. that's not the case this time. it's going to be a cooler pattern here. probably mostly clear. there might be a few low clouds around. a little bit breezy to blustery. northwest 25 miles per hour. 63 game time. that's really cool and well below average. the high 70 in san jose. should be 83. low clouds of plenty. the sierra nevada will be dealing with thunderstorm activity. the gusts out at cordelia, and travis just been going bongers all morning long, and the same at the altamont pass. it will be a below normal day. tomorrow looks like the best opportunity for thunderstorms
