a pipe bomb blowing up in new jersey early this morning after a weekend bombing in new york city, and another in a new jersey shore town. up next, the suspect who police say is now linked to at least two of those incidents and a man hunt underway. this and more ahead on mornings on 2. >> this is ktvu mornings on 2. 7:00, a busy morning on mornings on 2, it's monday, september 19th. and i'm gasia mikaelian. >> good morning, i'm mike mibach. dave clark has the day off. steve was out at the ballpark yesterday, my goodness.
>> felt like 100. heard it was high 80s. >> you must have been behind home plate. >> no, outfield. >> gasia, did you get out. >> i did. i was up at sonoma on saturday. >> that's very warm. >> sweating as well. >> this week, from one extreme to the other. it's on it way, today is the in between day. we have a few high clouds making for a nice sunrise here after yesterday's sunshine. very warm temps, 86 officially. san francisco, in the left field seats felt like 96. >> exactly. >> we do have for above normal temps here, and they will continue for a little bit. the higher clouds will clear out. it will be sunny. take a look at the temps for today. this is a typhoon heading across japan, and this might play into our weather later in the week, so i'll have more on that coming up a little bit later. let's take a look now at some of these other temps here. they are starting to drop, but
still high, 98, 86, 94, 78, 90 today. national weather service in handford, fresno says fall will live up to its name as highs drop about 25 trees on thursday -- degrees on thursday which is officially the first day of autumn. is there any fog to be found. it's trying. not yet to monterey, but boy is it moving up the coast and it's going to drop temps tomorrow. maybe santa cruz today. 50s, 60s on the temps here. the temperature difference, oakland is 11 degrees warmer than they were 24 hours ago. it's a little deceiving. most locations are 5, to 7, 8 degrees warmer. gulf of alaska is going to change our weather starting tomorrow but 70s, 80s and 90s. sal, what do you have on your screen there, anything? we have some slow traffic and a couple incidents that have made it slower than usual in the east bay, for example. let's start off with the bay bridge toll plaza, we're going to look at that. it's a 25 to 30 minute delay at the toll plaza, if you're
counting from the end of the line before you make it past the metering lights and onto the bridge but getting there on 80 is going to be slow, and we have slow traffic on 580 in portions getting up to this spot. we're looking at interstate 880 north and southbound in oakland. it looks okay here. if you're heading south from oakland to hayward and into the union city area, we have a problem. they're clearing up an injury accident, southbound 880 at 92. it's been there now for about an hour and a half. they're in the final clearing stages and traffic is backed up, not only on 880 but 580 is slow through caster valley because 238 is backed up and we're going to see slow traffic. also getting word of an accident on vas coe road -- vasco road. we are just getting more details on that, and we'll have more coming up next time. 7: 03, let's go back to the desk -- 7:03, let's go back to
the desk. and this is video from overnight in elizabeth, new jersey, where one of five explosionive devices found -- explosive devices exploded as a police robot tried to disarm it. >> this happened 24 hours after a pipe bomb blast in seaside park in new jersey, and explosion in manhattan that injured 29 people. a short time ago, the new york police department tweeted this photo of a man they are looking for. they now say they are connected this man to the two explosions on saturday. >> ktvu's alex savidge is following the latest developments from the newsroom. >> authorities do suspect a single terrorist group likely was responsible for the weekend's bombing in manhattan and the other explosions that happened throughout the new york area, and this morning there is a huge man hunt going on for 28-year-old pgh ahmad khan rahami, a naturalized citizen of afghanistan wanted in connection with for the various explosions. federal agents are searching an
apartment in elizabeth new jersey where rahami has lived. in a train station close to the apartment, a backpack was found with five pipe bombs inside. one of those pipe bombs exploded as a police robot tried to disarm it. nobody was hurt there. the mayor of elizabeth, new jersey, spoke a short time ago, and says it looks as though someone was trying to get rid of that backpack. >> there was no cell phone, and no electronic device attached to the five devices in that backpack. that backpack was found by two men who carried it under the bridge and dropped it when they saw the wires and the pipe and notified police headquarters. >> now, on saturday, explosion rocked manhattan's chelsea neighborhood injuring 29 people. shortly after that blast, another device was found nearby. that was a pressure cooker with wires and a cell phone attached. there was also another suspicious explosion. this one in seaside heights, new jersey, and again, investigators are searching for
one man this morning, pgh ahmad khan rahami who may be connected to the explosions, considered armed and dangerous . president obama has been briefed on the rapidly exploding situation, and he is expected to make a public comment at some point later on today. >> thank you very much. the president is in new york this morning for the united nations general assembly meeting. federal, state and local authorities say they have increased security in the city. new york governor andrew cuomo says nearly 1000 additional new york state police and national guard personnel will be patrolling bus terminals, airports and subway stations. >> the presidential candidates reacted over weekend to early reports of the explosion in new york city. >> i must tell you that just before i got off the plane, a bomb went off in new york, and nobody knows exactly what's going on. but boy, we are living in a time. we better get very tough, folks. >> i think it's always wiser to
wait until you have information before making conclusions. >> with the first debate between trump and clinton scheduled for one week from today, it is expected that terrorism and national security will be a hot topic. both candidates have said they are taking a tough stance on terror, both saying the threat is urgent. the question of the day is what does a tough stance on terror mean to you. is more security, more surveillance, tighter immigration laws. let us know what you think by posting a comment to our ktvu facebook page or tweeting us with the hash tag ktvu. we of course continue to stay on top of the developing story throughout morning. we have a live report on local security measures in the next half hour, and a live briefing from new york city at 9:00 which of course we'll have for you on the 9:00 and certainly you can find the latest updates anytime by going to ktvu.com. political and community leaders in san francisco are mourning the death of one of
the city's legendary figures. long time social and political activist, rose pak died yesterday after a long time illness. she was a powerful voice for san francisco's chinese american community for more than 40 years and played a critical role in the election of ed lee as the city's first chinese american mayor. leaders say she had incredible political power for someone who never held elective office. >> for all the power and influence that she had, she lived a very simple life. very simple life and her life was truly about service. >> she's like a giant amongst giant. >> many city leaders gathered near pak's apartment in the alley named after her after getting word of her death yesterday. funeral arrangements are still pending. we know a piece of metal pipe that crashed through a windshield on highway 101 may have come from a caltrans truck. this happened near the willow road exit. the victim has been identified as 82-year-old lewis shaffer of
mountain view. a preliminary investigation shows the possibility that hit shaffer likely fell off a caltrans water truck. caltrans offered condolences to shaffer's family and friends. a fire was first reported shortly after 6:00 last night on grayson court. no one was home when that fire started but investigators say one person suffered minor injuries after returning home before fire crews arrived. that person was trying to save rabbits that were inside the house. firefighters say the flames raced through several bedrooms and caused extensive damage. the largest natural disaster is happening around us. it's something many people don't pay attention to until it's pointed out to them. the big threat is dead and dying trees. a state task force said there were 22 million dead streets around our state, and less than a year later, that number tripled to 66 million dead trees. investigators say the drought and bark beatles are combining
to chemical -- beetles are combining to kill off the trees. >> these trees probably went dead like that in probably less than a month's time. >> the dead trees could fall on homes causing a lot of damage. they could also bring down power lines and when fire breaks out, they give flames a lot of fuel to burn. homeowners may be reluctant to have dead and dying trees moved because it can costs hundreds of thousands of dollars. but that's cheaper than having to replace a home that's badly damaged or destroyed in a wildfire. we're finding out about an accident at the port of oakland. containers were being unloaded yesterday morning at berth 58. two containers fell off the ship. one landed on a truck, and the other fell into the water. the truck driver survived and was taken to the hospital but we have been unable to get an updated report on his condition. the ship left the port yesterday. time is 7:10 now, with events unfolding in new york and new jersey, police here at home in the bay area are on high alert, and coming up in
minutes, what officers are doing to keep people safe. >> there's new hope the raiders could stay in oakland. what the nfl commissioner is saying about the future of the silver and black. it's slow in some areas and now because of incidents, the bay bridge is grinding in slow, grinding to a halt in some areas. we'll tell you the drive times coming up. after a toasty sunday, it will still be warm today, but then get ready, pretty big cool down is on the way. in 1803,
a man bought the territory of louisiana for 42 cents an acre. that was the greatest deal ever. until i made this one. now you can get my jumbo breakfast platter for just $2.99. take that history. scrambled eggs, eight mini pancakes, a hash brown, and your choice of bacon or sausage. it's the greatest deal since the louisiana purchase. sort of. the jumbo breakfast platter just $2.99 for a limited time. value, done my way.
. time is 7:15. and happening today, oracle's annual development conference in san francisco is getting started. more than 50,000 people from 150 countries are expected to attend the conference, which is held at moscone center. mark herd will give the keynote address in a couple hours. several streets around the center will be closed until thursday because oracle is
using the air for open air exhibits. keep that in mind. san mateo's go pro is expected to make a big announcement, unveiling the camera carrying drone called karma. industry experts say the drone will follow surfers, snowboarder and extreme athletes and they're expected to show off editing process. they hope it will boost the bottom line so it doesn't need to be sold to a larger company. go pro is on target to go an entire year without making a profit. after shutting out the rams, the 49ers had a tougher test. the defending nfc champs, carolina panthers, december pilot four turnovers, they racked up 529 yards of offense, including in 78-yard td from newton to greg olson. the 529 yards is the most the 49ers have allowed since 2007 and the 49ers did attempt a 4 4th quarter come back.
blaine gabbert with the touchdown run. and after a panthers field goal , gabbert threw two picks in the final four minutes and the panthers went onto win. 9ers head to seattle for a game on sunday. the atlanta falcons beat the raiders at the coliseum. 54,000 fans packed the stadium for the home opener. oakland allowed 500 yards of offense, late in the 4th 4th quarter, the falcons took the 35-21 lead, pulled within a touchdown but could not complete the come back, and lost 35-28. next sunday, off to nashville to battle the titans. yesterday, nfl commissioner roger goodell expressed optimism. no market should lose their team once, let alone twice. i believe there's a solution in oakland. that was reported on twitter, by brian murphy last week.
a nevada oversight committee recommended spending $750 million on public money in an nfl stadium in vegas. a bit of hope for those of us who live, play, work in oakland. am i right, sal. >> when the commissioner says something like that, it gives a little bit of hope anyway. we have a lot of slow traffic out there, and one of the things we want to mention is some of the accidents we have seen have made it worse. this is a look at the bay bridge. this is more like a normal commute, 25 to 30 minutes. a lot of people back at it here, and it's very busy. remember today oracle open world is in san francisco, second day. they started yesterday, but today seems like the first day that a lot of people will be showing up. b.a.r.t. will be crowded and howard is closed between 3rd 3rd and 4th. let's look at the san mateo bridge. getting here has been a little bit of a chore. we had an earlier accident, 880, it was there for a while. and 580, a couple tweets about
this, 580 and 205 really busy because of a couple of accidents, and near the contra costa line. an overturned vehicle near the line there. and that's a heavily traveled road. if that's your commute, give yourself extra time. 7:17. let's go to steve today in the weather center. >> thank you. a little bit of haze, smoke in the air, and a few high clouds. otherwise very calm. sfo tried to get a puff of a west breeze but it died off. there's a hint of one now out of travis but anything less than five isn't going to do it. tomorrow, though, i think we'll have gusts about 35. the fog will be flying in, and temperatures will drop on coast and bay. good 15, 20 degrees. inland by wednesday, for sure, but it's clear. mostly clear. a little band of high clouds we talked about and very still and very warm. temperatures, though, kathy harrigan says yippee. and sunshine in pacifica, i'll take it. not tomorrow. chad's in the city, beautiful
sunrise in the city here. and it will be warm. it will be, but not as warm as yesterday, when it was 86 degrees. i went 78 today. and the reason being, i think that fog is on its way. still, though, 78-62 is above on both. temperatures, these are the average high temps for this time of year, napa, oakland airport, mown view and san jose -- mountain view, san jose. these are all above but also cooler than sunday. these the temperature trends for livermore, sunday was 100 degrees. today, 97. 89, 78, and by thursday, 72 degrees. also have a hurricane. hurricane payne moving north. all signs, take this as it weakens, moves north and looks like most of the moisture will move toward san diego. maybe la. does not look like here. at least that's the trend so far, and into arizona. keep an eye on it. looks like it's going to favor southern california for sure. for us, clear, calm, but look
at the fog. moving fast. might take the turn at monterey later today, but it will be shallow in the santa cruz, really tricky to forecast in this pattern. 60s on a lot of temps, 50s there are some areas that are warm right now. higher elevations in the 70s. these are all warm, 62 ukiah. 36 in truckee. we're clear right now tomorrow. i think this will be sold out. the fog is back, and there's the big drop on the temps as we head into wednesday and thursday. it will be a cooler, windy pattern with snow in the sierra. highs today will be anywhere from 70s to 100 degrees for one more day. 80s, 90s, for many to the east bay, south bay the same. gilroy yesterday 1023. 9 -- 102. 97 today. 70s, 80s, 90s on the peninsula and there's your temperature trend as plunges. we head to the first day of fall, by the way, on thursday. >> perfect. thank you, steve. honoring the best of
this is the new comfort food. and it starts with foster farms simply raised chicken. california grown with no antibiotics ever. let's get comfortable with our food again. florida's governor said miami's winwoods arts district is no longer under a travel warning. that neighborhood had been declared an active transmission
zone for the zika virus since the first of august. officials have been aggressively spraying to kill the virus. that neighborhood popular with tourists has suffered after the centers for disease control issued a travel warning. they issued the warning for pregnant women and partners after confirming zika was being spread in the winwood area by mosquitoes. firefighters in marin county trying to determine the exact cause of a fire near fair fax, reported near iron springs road. the marin county fire department said it burned about 10 acres but did not threaten any buildings. nearly 100 firefighters from several different agencies fought that fire. a weekend fire destroyed a local landmark near the coast of san mateo county. the two alarm fire at the pescadero country store started early yesterday morning. no reports of injuries but firefighters say the building is a total loss. investigators are still trying to search for that exact cause. the country store is known as a popular gathering spot for both people living in the pescadero area as well as tourists.
the sfmta could decide if controversial changes will be made to san francisco's l- taraval station. they are set to vote on the l- taraval rapid project, calling for the painting of the transit only lanes between 15th and 46 46th avenues on taraval street. and will add new traffic signals there. the most controversial part of the project is it will install 15 concrete boarding islands. some sunset district neighbors oppose the plan and say it could hurt businesses in their area. the sfmfa is expected to vote on a plan to make cell phone service available on the underground routes. we told you when local transit and political leaders announced the plan last week. b.a.r.t. officials will negotiate agreements with major cell carriers to expand their existing underground network to muni. the project is expected to cost nearly $6 million and could be available one year from now. a thief in riverside county
did not get his money's worth after breaking into a ymca. the man was caught but a surveillance camera coming through an air duct in the ceiling of the ymca. once he was in, he went through a register and removed cash. the big problem for him, the register was fake. and so was the cash. the register was a child's toy filled with play money. police say they believe this is not the man's first crime but it was definitely his least profitable. 7:25 now. there is a new study out on crime in the united states. we'll talk about which city is responsible for almost half the increase in the nationwide murder rates and where san francisco stands. oracle world getting underway, security one of the top concerns. and you saw christian standing there on howard street, closed between 3rd and 4th 4th and that's causing delays south of market. we are also looking at some delays in the east bay with some of that commute. coming up, we'll talk about all

we have records that were set yesterday, oakland airport, richmond, gilroy, 89, 85 and a smoking 102. these are cooler now, santa rosa, livermore, san jose. above average but cooler than yesterday. that's going to be the theme. tomorrow, i think there will be a 15, 20-degree drop. we are clear except the fog is making time, moving up the coast pretty fast. going to be in big sur not too far from now. 50s, 60s on the temps. well above, 5 to 10 degrees warmer than 24 hours ago. laughlafayette, 63, pittsburg 65. a late breeze here. santa cruz coast into monterey, and that system dropping down right there is going to sweep in and drop our temps inland 25 degrees by wednesday or thursday. 70s, 80s, and 90s for one more day, but up and down she goes on those temps this week. >> yeah, and you know, one of the things about the commute, steve, is that we don't have
the fog so we don't have any of those slowdowns. >> tomorrow we will. >> yeah, tomorrow we will, and we'll see if that's affecting visibility. today is -- it's not. let's look at the bay bridge toll plaza, a 25 minute delay before you make it onto the bridge. and we're looking at the san mateo bridge, that traffic is busy getting to the 92 interchange because of an earlier accident has been slower than usual. leaving san leandro, and heading to hayward, it has been slower. on vasco road, there is an overturned crash and that means traffic is going to be slower than usual. 7:31, let's go back to the desk. thank you, sal. we continue to follow developing news this morning on the bombings saturday night in manhattan and the discovery of explosive devices in elizabeth, new jersey, last night. now, authorities now say they're looking for the same
man in connection with both incidents. the fbi conducted a raid at a building in elizabeth hours after investigators found five explosive devices there. one of those devices detonated as a police robot was trying to disable it. >> the one pipe bomb that went off was being dismantled by a robot that cut a wire and it exploded. the other four were wrapped in bombproof material and put in a safe container, taken to the middle sex fire academy, at which time, agents from the fbi will pick it up and transfer it to quantico virginia. >> police announced they are searching for ahmad khan rahami. >> new jersey police posted these photos of rahami. federal agents searched an apartment in elizabeth, new jersey, where he has lived.
new york's governor says it looks like the bombing could be an act of terrorism with a foreign connection. security on the minds of law enforcement agencies, including right here in the bay area. >> police say they are increasing security anywhere that could be a target. that includes oracle's open world conference, which is drawing huge crowds to san francisco south of market district. that is where we find ktvu's christien kafton this morning. >> we have been in contact with san francisco police this morning and have seen a number of sfpd officers and private security in the area here. since we arrived at five this morning, we have seen very visible security presence, including private security officers sweeping the area with dogs. those who arrived here early this morning say they too have been keeping an eye on the events unfolding on the east coast. we found one man from new york city who tells us security is always on his mind. >> it was a crazy weekend from what happened in new jersey and up in new york, so it's good to see them making progress on in, and you know, security is a concern all over the world,
especially coming to an event like this. >> reporter: san francisco police say in light of those high profile incidents, they are increasing their visibility throughout the city. police announced via social media that the department is following the explosion from the discovery of explosive devices and stress there are no known threats to san francisco, but they have increased uniformed patrols throughout the city, and the department says they are working with allied law enforcement agencies and as always is asking the public to be vigilant. you can see a san francisco motor unit there. they have heightened security in the past in response to high profile in the past, and say they are taking similar steps right now. we are expecting to see increased foot patrols in high traffic areas, including union square and the embarcadero. we will keep monitoring the security effort and security modifications going on around the city today here in light of all of the events that have gone on over the weekend. >> thank you. the fbi is now investigating saturday night's stabbing at a minnesota shopping mall as a possible act
of terrorism. nine people were injured in the attack before an off duty police officer shot and killed a man with a knife who was dressed as a mall security guard. isis claims he was a soldier of the islamic state. witnesses say the attacker made at least one reference to allah. the fbi says this investigation is still in its very early stages. >> we are currently investigating this as a potential act of terrorism. but we do not at this point in time know whether the subject was in contact with, had connections with, was inspired by, a foreign terrorist organization. >> all nine stabbing victims are expected to survive. the star tribune of minneapolis newspaper has identified the attacker as 22-year-old dahir adana somali american. france is still under a state of emergency. the annual ceremony is taking on added significance as country tries to heal from assaults that have killed more
than 200 people in the past year. it was intended by hundreds of people including the family killed by islamic extremis in paris, niese and brussels. >> the homicide raid in the u.s. is projected to be higher than last. and you have violence in one city, the city of chicago. the new york university finds the nationwide homicide rate will increase by about 13% this year. and researchers say that's because of the unprecedented violence in chicago, which has seen more than 500 killings this year alone. despite chicago's increases, violence across the u.s. remains near 30 year lows. the report found that a dozen cities including san francisco, philadelphia, seattle and washington, d.c. has seen crime drop this year. the marin county sheriff's department is the latest law enforcement agency to start using body cameras. deputies will wear the devices tomorrow. the department purchased 85 cameras. the first year of the program
will cost about $200,000. the sheriff says the use of the cameras will allow for a clear understanding of incidents and help enhance community trust. one teenager is dead and two people are seriously hurt after a high speed police chase in sonoma county yesterday morning. a santa rosa police officer tried to pull over a silver toyota but the car sped off according to the press democrat. that car crashed west of santa rosa near highway 12. the paper says one person was thrown out of the car, two others were trapped inside. it's not clear just yet who was driving or why the driver tried to run from police. the person who died has been identified as 19-year-old romero romero. the chp said speed may be the result of a deadly car crash southbound highway 101 in san jose. other drivers called chp saying a white car was going about 95 miles per hour, and exited at blossom road. the car slammed into a tree and while they were approaching the crash scene, the tree fell on
the car. they have identified him as 21- year-old edgar lopez. a family that has rented the same home for 20 years is getting community support. leslie ramirez and her supporters held a protest outside the home of her landlord. she has lived in a rent controlled single family home for 20 years, and she says the land lord wants her out so he can raise the rent and is moving his daughter into the home as a part owner so he can reclaim the home. ramirez is finding a similar rental at a price her family can afford is impossible, and any move would be extremely difficult for her parents. >> this is the home that we know. my parents are seniors so for them to relocate and begin their lives somewhere new in affordable housing is not possible. >> ramirez says her family is not the only one facing this situation. she says several landlords have had relatives move into property as a way to get around
rent control laws. she says in her case, the land lord has given them 60 days notice to move out. time is 7:39. coming up in minutes, ament who considers one of the most -- a woman considers one of the most powerful women in san francisco politics has died. the legendary political power broker who never held elective office, but first. i got chased by one on the inside about knee high. >> three shark attacks in a matter of hours on the same florida beach. up next, what's in the water that officials think is causing a problem. good morning, we still see traffic that is getting slower by the minute. highway 24 through lafayette is slow on the way toward oakland. lots of sunshine and very warm to hot conditions sunday. still pretty warm here today, but there are signs of a big cool down on tap this week.
toxic algae has showed up in the lake's waterways, the highest count in stay history. and among the areas, the east bay times, the drought has a lot to do with the recent increase, and regional water officials say there is not much that can be done about the problem. toxic algae can cause rashes, eye irritation, and stomach sickness. it can also be deadly to dogs. swimmers on an orlando beach in florida are on high alert after three surfers were bitten by sharks. it happened sunday morning on the new smyrna beach east of orlando. life guards say one man was bitten on the leg, a second man on both hands. a third victim, a 16-year-old boy was bitten on the inner thigh. he believes the attack were
connected to a recent surge of bait fish in the area the sharks like to eat. >> it definitely makes me nervous for everybody else who comes out here. three in one day, an hour after each other, that's pretty nerve racking. >> while some swimmers are staying out of the water, others say they will take the risk and believe the attacks are just accidental. beach patrol officers are telling people to be aware of their surroundings if they do go into the water. the la rams first home game in southern california will be remembered for a lot of reasons, but especially for the heat. the temperature outside the coliseum was 90 degrees when the rams and seahawks took the field, more than 100 degrees inside the stadium. 90,000 fans were there for the game. paramedics said they treated 160 people for heat related problems, and a -- no one was reported to be in critical condition. the rams beat the seahawks with
both teams scoring field goals. television's best were honored at the 68th annual prime time emmy award. >> and the emmy goes to game of thrones. >> hb o's game of thrones took home 12 awards, including best drama, the saga now has 38 emmys, which breaks the record for the highest number of awards for any series. the political comedy veep was a big winner. julia louis dreyfus took home an emmy for best comedy actress. >> i think veep has torn down the wall between comedy and politics. our show started out at a political satire, and now feels more like a sobering documentary documentary. so i certainly do promise to rebuild that wall and make mexico pay for it. >> other winners include fx's
acclaimed mini series, the people versus oj simpson, mr. robot, and tatiana of orphan black won best lead actor, and actress in the drama category. let's check with sal and see how the roadways are looking. good monday morning to you. right now, i would say it's just moderately heavy. we've had issues. we're going to start with the bay bridge where it has been uneventful and still very slow, using the car pool lanes, and backed up out to the maize. we have a crush -- maze, we have a crash of traffic getting into the city. south of market area, because of oracle open world at moscone center, we have howard street closed between 3rd and 4th. it's going to be a lot of crowding. you can see northbound is slowing, southbound is going to be slow from near marina boulevard to hayward. vasco road remains slow.
you'll see slow traffic there, and now the south bay, slow traffic on all freeways getting up to the west valley. a couple of minor incidents. this is looking like a typical and slow commute driving into the west valley. 7:46. let's go to steve. sal, very calm here. very warm for many. also kind of hazy, smoky, the monterey fire still sending up a lot of smoke. i think i saw 67% containment. that has been one long fire down there. very hazy, had a little band of high clouds move over us. there's hardly any breeze. i mean, there's not enough to make any difference yesterday. tomorrow, everything will be setting the stage for a dramatic cool down. yesterday, record highs, oakland airport, richmond, gilroy, 89, 85 and 102. michael heraba, i'll say there. near sausalito, i got the gist of it there. you can see the higher clouds as well, and a little bit of that cloud deck has moved out. temperatures, these are the average highs for this time of
year. napa, 83. oakland airport 85. today 93, 85, 88 and 90. those are all cooler than yesterday. the cooling begins a little bit today and kicks in tomorrow. it will be hot inland today with 90s and not as hot as yesterday. it might be closed for some and we plunge off the table wednesday and thursday. these will be the projected highs after today. yesterday was 100 in livermore, today 97, and 89 and 78 and 72. we also have hurricane payne moving straight up past baja. some of the moisture is spinning into southern california. i'll show you that in a second. it looks like the track will stay towards the south, southern california, and into arizona again. you can see some of the moisture is already beginning to move up towards catalina, avalon, off oceanside in la. be advised that is in the mix the next couple of days. that's the fog.
it's flying. and this afternoon takes the turn at monterey, and kicks in a sea breeze for santa cruz. 50s, 60s on a lot of temps. mid-50s, upper 50s, 57 very popular. look at the difference between los altos hills, and pacifica sitting at nearly 70 degrees. you don't see that all the time. september you can. 62 ukiah, and sacramento. all good right now. a few high clouds and haze and smoke in the area. the key is this right there, developing. that's going to drop in and sweep into northern california and give snow to the sierra on thursday. i'll tackle that as we head towards wednesday. you'll notice a 25-degree drop and a cool windy pattern as fall begins. 70s, roll and 90s. one more great beach day. i think tomorrow it will be gone because there will be a lot of fog in here, but today, it sure is going to be above average and warm, but then by tomorrow, coast and bay might take the plunge and everyone else follows suit wednesday into thursday. kicks out friday and warmer on
the weekend. september in the bay area. >> yes, sir, isn't it. >> in the thick of it. >> big time this time, and i like the pattern towards the end of the month, i think early october looks cool too. >> thank you, steve. the giants begin a critical series against the first place dodgers in los angeles tonight as san francisco is fighting to make the playoffs. yesterday the giants lost to the cardinals at at&t ballpark, a good place to watch the game. 3-0 the final. and home field advantage over the giants and potential wild card. the giants dropped one game behind the new york mets. the giants trail the dodgers by five games in the nl west. the a's outfielder, khris davis his hit 40th home run of the season in oakland's 5-2 victory over the rangers in texas. becoming the first a's player to hit 40 players, since jason guy am bee hit 4 -- giambi hit 43. oakland hosting the astros

gas available. this comes after a pipeline displaying gas up and down the eastern sea board broke leaving hundreds of thousands of gallons of fuel in alabama. drivers began stocking up on fuel, causing long lines at gas stations. i was at a gas station earlier, why are there so many cars over here. i came over here thinking it would be better. it's the same thing. >> there's plenty of gas, unless everybody starts filling up and creating a big snowball. >> the pipeline leak happened at old coal mine pit with most of the fuel flowing into a water retention pond, crews are working to remove the gasoline from the pond to storage tank. 700 people were working around the clock to wild a temporary bypass around the leak and can't say when the line will be up and running. more problems for samsung and the galaxy not 7 on wall street. pam cook joins me with more money business. >> the stock market, investors
seem to be optimistic about the fed meeting that happens this week. they will probably not raise interest rates. that seems to be the consensus, and that is helping things out on the market. i want to show you the opening bell from earlier this morning, just about an hour and a half ago, and those are people from workshop and business opportunities, ringing the bell this morning, celebrating 50 years in business. they help entrepreneurs get started. they say 54% of their graduates are in business in five years. congratulations to them. checking on the numbers, as i mentioned, pretty good day. you can see a live look at the dow jones up 92 points right now. 18,216, up a half percent. the nasdaq up as well. that getting a lot of help. the stocks getting a lot of help from 3m, also one of the big companies issuing a forecast of the upcoming earns report, looks rosy, and that often sets the tone for the markets. s&p 500 up as well. the recall of the samsung

fire. a weekend fire destroyed a local landmark near the coast of san mateo county. the two alarm fire at the pescadero country store started early yesterday morning. firefighters say the building is a total loss. investigators are searching for the cost. the country store is known as a popular gathering spot for people living in the pescadero area as well as tourists. cal fire says the state's largest natural disaster is happening around us. it's something many don't pay attention to until it's pointed out to them. the big threat is dead and dying trees. last october, a state task force said there were 22 million dead trees around our state. less than a year later, that has tripled to 66 million. experts say the drought and bark beetles are combining to kill off the trees. >> it's so amiasing to see -- amazing to see how fast they go. these trees probably went dead like that. >> the dead trees could fall on homes, causing a lot of damage. when fire breaks out, they of course give the flames a lot of fuel to burn.
back now to the developing news we have been covering all morning. president obama about to speak on the bombings that happened in new york and new jersey. we listen in. mayor de blasio, we have seen what was apparently a pipe bomb go off in new jersey, in seaside park, where it could have seriously injured our u.s. marines and spectators who were there for a race. the bombing in the chelsea neighborhood here in new york, injured more than two dozen people. we are extremely fortunate and grateful that nobody was killed. and our prayers go out to all of those who have been injured. we want to wish them a speedy recovery. i especially want to commend all the outstanding police and first responders in both new york city and new jersey for their extraordinary professionalism and their quick response, which surely prevented even more people from being hurt, and ensured that people got assistance quickly. the investigation is moving rapidly as is my practice, i'm
going to leave it to the fbi and law enforcement to provide detailings. i think everybody is aware at this point that there is a person of interest who is the focus of the investigation, and the fbi can give you further details in terms of how that is proceeding. i told governors cuomo, and christie, and mayor de blasio that they and their teams will continue to have all federal support as they move ahead with their investigations in tracking down every lead and working to keep the people of this city and of this region safe. law enforcement is asking for the help of the community and so to everybody in this region, i want to repeat what we have said before, if you see something suspicious, then you need to say something. contact local law enforcement. in the meantime, i would ask that the press try to refrain from getting out ahead of the
investigation. i am extraordinarily happy with the cooperation that's been taking place between the fbi and state and local law enforcement officials. they are moving smartly on this investigation. it does not help if false reports or incomplete information is out there. so try to, as much as possible, stick to what our investigators say because they actually know what they're talking about. meanwhile, i know that the united nations meeting is here every year already creates an additional workload for new york. but given the un meetings, we also have a particularly high level of federal resources here to help as needed. we're going to make sure that everybody is working together seamlessly as one team to get to the bottom of what happened, to find those responsible and to make sure that justice is done. meanwhile, while all this is
going on in new york and new jersey, we're also focused on the stabbing attack at the shopping mall in minnesota. at this point, we see no connection between that incident and what happened here in new york and new jersey. our attention there is on the people who were injured. and again, we are very grateful that no one lost their life, thanks to the quick action of a brave off duty police officer, the suspect was killed and we avoided more people being hurt. i had a chance also to speak with governor dayton this morning. i assured him that we will provide all the assistance that he needs in the investigation. the fbi is investigating the minnesota incident as a potential act of terrorism. we will direct the full resources of the federal government to make sure that the investigation goes forward aggressively. and finally i want to take this opportunity to reassure the people in this city, this region, and americans across
our country, but our counter terrorism and law enforcement professionals at every level, federal, state and local are working together around the clock to prevent attacks and to keep us safe. they are the best of the best. over the years, they afforded many plots and saved many lives. and we are incredibly grateful for their service today and every single day. we will continue to lead the global coalition and the fight to destroy isil, which is instigating a lot of people over the internet to carry out attacks. we are going to continue to go after them. we're going take out their leaders. we're going to take out their infrastructure. they are continuing to lose ground in iraq, and in syria, and later today i'll be meeting with prime minister of body of iraq to discuss the need to sustain that momentum. as we take away more of their
territory, it exposes isil as the failed cause that it is, and it helps to undermine their ideology which overtime makes it harder to recruit violence. and we're going to enlist tech companies and community and religious leaders to push back against online extremist content, and all messages of hate. in moments like this, i think it's important to remember what terrorists and violent extremists are trying to do. they are trying to hurt innocent people, but they also want to inspire fear in all of us and disrupt the way we live, to undermine our values and so even as we have to be vigilant and aggressive, both in preventing senseless acts of violence, but also making sure that we find those who carry out such acts and bring them to justice, we all have a role to play as citizens in making sure
that we don't succumb to that fear,s and there's no better example of that than the people of new york and new jersey. when i was speaking to governor cuomo, and governor christie, and mayor de blasio, one point they all made is that folks around here, you know, they don't get scared. they're tough. they're resilient, they go about their business every single day, and that kind of toughness and resoluteness and the recognition that neither individuals nor organizations like isil can ultimately undermine our way of life. that's the kind of strength that makes me so proud to be an american, and that's the kind of strength that is going to be absolutely critical, not just in the days to come, but in the years to come. by showing those who want to do
us harm that they will never beat us, by showing the entire world that as americans we do not and never will get into fear, that's going to be the most important ingredient in us defeating those who would carry out terrorist acts against us. thank you very much, everybody, and as i said, you will be receiving, i'm sure, ongoing briefings from both the fbi and local law enforcement in terms of the details of the investigation. >> the president there speaking from new york. he's in the city for the un general assembly on this monday speaking directly about the attacks that have happened over the weekend. one in new jersey at a charity run in seaside park, and then the other one in the city of new york in the chelsea neighborhood that injured 29 people. the suspect, ahmad khan rahami, we didn't hear the president say he was in custody. he left that up to the fbi, but the new york times reporting that that suspect has been
taken into custody. reuters also confirming he was taken into custody after a shoot out there in new jersey. >> we'll stay on top of that development of course. right now, the suspect believed to be in custody. we heard the president touch on familiar themes of not succumbing to fear, people especially in new york and new jersey are tough and resilient. >> and extremely fortunate no one was killed. we continue to follow the developing story out of new york and new jersey. we brought you the president live after a man hunt that had been going on for hours. that man hunt is now believed to be over as authorities search for the man connected to multiple bombs placed around the tristate area over the weekend. the 28-year-old ahmad a hammy is said to be in custody -- rahami is said to be in custody. live pictures from downtown san francisco, a busy scene no doubt, people getting ready for oracle world as it gets underway. thousands more people have poured into that already congested area, and san francisco police are increasing security in the city.

comes a big change for tomorrow. the leading edge start to move in tuesday night, wednesday, and thursday with a big drop in temps. 70s, 80s, 90s. what do you have at 8:34. we have a serious accident in the east bay, right to highway 24 westbound. it's a motorcycle crash that is blocking lanes on highway 24 near the b.a.r.t. station. there it is, and you can see the fire department is taking up the left lane and traffic is narrowing down. this, unfortunately, sounds like a pretty serious motorcycle accident. and as we pull back here, you can see how jammed the traffic is. it is at a standstill coming out of walnut creek, and looks like they have issued a sig alert for the area. that means they're expecting a lot of slow traffic here as you drive on the commute. we also have slow traffic this morning in other areas. so let's continue to the bay bridge toll plaza. i want to mention the traffic has been slow here. it is still backed up for at
least a 25 minute delay as you driver through. another sig alert has been issued in the south bay, southbound 101 to blossom hill. a couple lanes taken away due to an injury accident, and traffic is going to be slow here, coming out of the area, and also going the other way, getting into the west valley, so this commute here in the west valley has been not good, driving up to the valley. all these freeways are slow getting to sunnyvale, cupertino, and mountain view. at 8:35, let's go back to the desk. developing news out of new york and new jersey, reports now that the suspect is in custody in connection with the bombings saturday night in new jersey and new york that injured 29 people. ahmad rahami was taken into custody after a shoot out with police in linden new jersey. just a few minutes ago we brought you president obama ice news conference live on our air as he talked about the

from his mind. >> reporter: i was there on september 11th, and you know, through it all. yeah, travel a lot, so think about it all the time. >> reporter: san francisco police say in light of the high profile incidents on the east coast, they are increasing their visibility throughout san francisco. police announced via social media that the department is closely following news about the explosions and discovery of the explosive devices. they stress that there have been no known threats to san francisco but the fspd has increased uniformed patrols throughout the city, and the department says they are working with allied law enforcement agencies and as always is asking the public to be vigilant. if we come to the live shots, you can see the crowds coming to oracle worldwide today. we also have some barricades here. concrete barricades as well as big steel boxes around them, trying to prevent any vehicles from coming through, and a similar attack like we saw in france earlier, so clearly,
security and keeping folks safe at oracle world and around the city of san francisco on everyone's mind today. >> thank you, and again the associated press is confirming what we reported as breaking news, u.s. law enforcement officials say the man sought for questioning in the new york and new jersey explosions is indeed in custody after a shoot out. more details about the shoot out as we get them. meanwhile we know the fbi is investigating saturday night's stabbing that happened at a minnesota shopping mall as a possible act of terrorism. nine people were injured in the attack before an off duty police officer shot and killed a man with a knife who was dressed as a mall security guard. isis claims he was a soldier of the islamic state. witnesses say the attacker made at least one reference to allah, however, the fbi says the investigation is in its very early stages. all nine people who were injured in the stabbing are expected to survive. the star tribune of minneapolis newspaper has identified the attacker in this case as 22- year-old dahir adan, a somali

unqualified and does not have the temperament to be president. the trump campaign is doing damage control from a comment that appears to incite violence against clinton. >> take their guns away. she doesn't want guns. let's see what happens to her. >> that's absolute nonsense. his comment was if she didn't have all that security, she would change her attitude about the right to keep and bear arms. >> the trump campaign is also trying to put the birther issue to rest now that trump says he now believes president obama was born in the united states. the san francisco family that's rented the same home for more than 20 years is getting community support to fight an eviction. ramirez says she has lived in a rent controlled single family home with her parents for more than 20 years, and says the landlord wants her out so he can raise the rent. she says he's moving his daughter into the home as a part owner so he can reclaim the home. finding a similar rental at a price her family can afford would be impossible, and says any kind of move would be
extremely difficult for her parents. >> this is the home that we know. my parents are seniors so for them to relocate and begin their life somewhere new, in affordable housing is not possible. >> ramirez says her family's not the only one facing the situation. she says several landlords have had relatives move in to property in their neighborhood as a way to get around rent control laws. in her case, the landlord has given 60 days notice to move out. the giants begin a series against the dodgers in los angeles. yesterday the giants lost to the cardinals at at&t ballpark. final score, 3-0. the loss means st. louis has home field advantage over the giants in any potential wild card breaker. and the giants dropped one game behind the new york mets for the top wild card spot. they trail the dodgers by five games in the nl west. a'sout fielder, khris davis hit the 40th home run of the season in the 5-2 victory over the rangers. he becomes the first a's player

around the country. >> that's right. there's a segment on my show called i got this, and over the course of the summer, and even now, we'll go out to people's houses or place of business and they won't tell me anything. they won't tell me where i'm going or who i'm going to meet, and the person i'm going to meet knows that a tv show is coming, but they don't know it's me. we meet for the first time on camera for real, i get to know about them, and over the course of the interview, i figure out what they do for a living. we send them out for a day of relaxation and i take over their job, and i tell them i got this, and i can tell you, there are some hard working talented people in this country and it is really hard to take over for them for the day. lots of fails on my behalf. >> a lot of talk shows have the staples, you've got the opening monologue, some of the gift give aways, is there anything that you told the boss there and said you know what, we're not going to do it this way because of this particular reason. preinterviewing, whatever it may be, is there something that
you said hey, i don't want to do this like other talk shows do? >> well, i didn't focus so much on what i didn't want to do as what i did want to do. you mentioned preinterviews, for your viewers who may not know, they do an interview before the guest gets on the show where the producers talk to the guest, work out a bunch of stories, and then they would hand the information to the host, and the host would talk about it. i wanted to make sure if somebody didn't want to do a preinterview that they didn't have to. if they wanted one, absolutely, i'll talk about whatever they want to talk about, but for example, when terrence howard came on the other day, we didn't know what was going to happen. he ended up playing a song, and it was a song he wrote, and we didn't know it. we ended up playing and it turned out to be spontaneous and exciting for everyone because it was kind of walking a tight rope, and you didn't know exactly what to expect. i didn't talk too much about here's what i don't want to do. i just said i want my band, i want to have a party in the middle of the day, i want to have celebrities a live audience, and i want to have a
good time, and they went with it. >> i've been catching a little bit of it, and it's fantastic, and you have been on so many late night shows, daytime shows, it's great to see you on the other side. congratulations with all the success, and take the show on the road, bring it to the bay area whenever you want. >> you don't have to twist my arm. i'll come out there in a second. hopefully we can make it out there. >> harry connick jr., thank you again, appreciate your time. watch harry, 3:00 p.m., monday through friday, airing right here on ktvu fox 2. >> television's best were honored last night at the 68th 68th annual prime time emmy awards. >> the emmy goes to game of thrones. >> hb o's game of thrones took home 12 awards including best drama. the fantasy saga has 38 emmys which breaks the record for the highest number of awards for any series. veep was also a big winner. julia louie dreyfus took home
