7:00 am
>> 7:00. thursday morning. the first day of december. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> and good morning. i'm dave clark. we are also focusing on your weather this first day of december. how were you feeling. >> i'm cold. i took the step, steve, of turning up the thermostat when i woke up instead of when the others woke up. >> it was all about me. that's what you're saying. i don't blame you. it is cold out there, gasia and dave. i think you have company, gasia, some of the viewers on the cold temperatures. let's get right to it. stacy says i'm a wimp when it comes to the cold. i wish i could be like a bear and hibernate until spring. you go ahead. we'll send somebody over on march 1st and wake you up. mostly clear. let's zoom out the picture here. there she goes. the clouds on its way to southern california. they are now taking the turn into the four corners of
7:01 am
arizona and southern nevada. still cold down there. waiting on the northerly breeze. it will eventually kick in later today and tonight and into tomorrow. 34 in palo alto. also half moon bay. there are cooler readings up in mendocino county and lake county. santa clara is in there. boulder creek. soquel at 44. campbell at 42 degrees. a few high clouds. slightly above average. near average on the temperatures. you don't stay 61, 62 very long. the days are so short. upper 50s, low 60s. sal, last time it was the east shore. where are you beginning this time. >> it's the dunbarton bridge. westbound traffic is also affected, at least some of the concrete either on the freeway
7:02 am
or on the truck, it is unclear, it came over to the other side of the road. the dunbarton bridge is not a good way to get across the bridge. the accident is eastbound but there is slow traffic westbound. the dunbarton bridge, i would write that off for now. use the san mateo bridge. let's take a look at that. it doesn't look too bad heading out to the highrise. especially the eastbound direction, it should be a decent drive to get over to the east bay. don't use the eastbound dunbarton for sure, both lanes are blocked. the bay bridge toll plaza is backed up for 15 to 20 minutes before you make it across into san francisco. when you do make it across into san francisco, there is a motorcycle accident in san francisco, along southbound 101 in the vicinity of cesar chavez. it is involving a motorcyclist. now they have fire department and medics on the way. this is a big mess. it may affect your drive off the bay bridge, if it backs up
7:03 am
along the sky way. this commute is interconnected. we will watch it for you closely. let's go back to the desk. >> authorities have captured the fourth and final inmate on the run following a jail break in santa clara county. janine de la vega live in san jose. janine de la vega, he was arrested after a seven-hour standoff. >> reporter: yes, he was. chavez was take known custody without incident. there was no struggle. we are told that he was high on drugs and in possession of crack cocaine. chavez is now being housed here at the main jail. here is video of 33-year-old chavez being walked out of the duplex in south san jose around 8:30 last night. sheriff's officials had been at the home on coy drive near oak ridge high school for seven hours. they learned one of chavez's friends lived there. they were trying to get him to come out of the house. they deployed tear gas.
7:04 am
they entered and ultimately found chavez in a room. >> a female residence, carla fernandez, was also arrested for resisting and obstructing an investigation, being a felon in possession of a firearm and being an accessory to chavez's escape. >> reporter: investigators say there may be more arrests if they determine that others were helping to hide chavez. 24 hours before the arrest, the u.s. marshal service caught the inmate that escaped with him, leron campbell. he was found hiding in the attic of his sister's apartment. the first two inmates were immediately caught. they had cut through steel bars and climbed down a second story building using bed sheets as a rope. the sheriff's office is now reviewing security procedures to make sure that this just does not happen again. back to you. >> thank you. >> the time is 7:04. we are still following
7:05 am
developing news out of fremont. a female teacher at washington high school was arrested and accused of having sex with an underaged student. ktvu's alex savidge broke the story at 6:00 a.m. you're back now. you have some new details from the school district, alex? >> reporter: yeah. we are told, dave, this woman worked as a pe teacher here at washington high school in fremont since 2008. this morning she is on unpaid leave and will not be returning to the district. district officials do confirm that 32-year-old corey at iock was arrested last week and accused of having inappropriate relationship with a student. it's unclear what school the student attended. the crime in question happened over this past summer. unclear exactly why the arrest was made just now. this morning, we are joined by the superintendent of fremont unified school district, jim morris. thank you for taking the time. what were your thoughts when you found out what happened and how are you responding?
7:06 am
>> certainly. so any incident like this that happens, obviously our first focus is trying to do everything that we can to help the police department, support their investigation, to make sure that it is complete and thorough. secondly, focus on students. what is in the best interest of students, keeping them safe. and third, obviously today, trying to maintain normalcy and calm on the campus. we sent a letter to all of the parents in the washington high school community, informing them, trying to share as much information as we can with parents so that they know what is happening and they understand the steps that we're taking to protect kids. >> reporter: we understand that she has been with the district -- that the teacher has been with the district since 2008. worked at american high school for a time and then came over here to work at washington high school. she also currently works for mission san jose -- excuse me, mission san jose high school in
7:07 am
san jose as a swim coach there. >> mission san jose high school in fremont as a swimming coach. we sent information to the parents at mission san jose high school just to let them know of the arrest and include information on here is contact at the police department if parents have additional information or community members have additional information that may be valuable to the police department. here is how to contact them. >> reporter: is it possible that there are other victims in. >> based on the information that we have currently, i don't have information that there are additional victims. that's one of the reasons in the letter we have asked parents if you have additional information or if there could be additional information, they want to share with the detectives who are investigating, here is the contact information for them. >> reporter: okay. thank you very much, jim morrison superintendent of fremont unified school district. talking with us about this troubling arrest. troubling for staff members, parents, students.
7:08 am
and, again, 32-year-old corey atiack, a pe teacher at washington high school was arrested last thursday, facing charges of inappropriate conduct with an underaged student. again, we don't know what school that student attended. the teacher is on paid leave -- excuse me is on unpaid leave right now but will not be returning to the school district. we understand that she has been released from jail on bond. we will send it back to you for now. >> alex savidge in fremont, thank you. more information is coming out about the shasta county woman who was freed after being kidnapped and kept for three weeks. >> i will confirm that the suspects did brand her. i will not get into the details of where the brand is located on her body. nor what was branded on her. for, again, the integrity of the investigation. >> what is described as intense interviews, sherri papini told investigators who armed hispanic women abducted her.
7:09 am
it will be difficult to create a composite because the captors hid their faces and at times covered sherri papini's head so she couldn't see anything. her friends are doing whatever they can to support her. >> very beautiful soul inside and out. just a very nice young lady. >> sherri papini's husband says she was starved. she weighed on 87 pounds when she was released and her hair was cut. the captors are described as having long curly hair, thick spanish accent. the older woman had straight black hair with graying and thick eyebrows. somebody offered a six figure ransom for the return of sherri papini. although no one claimed the money, a friend of sherri papini and a consultant says the money may have made a difference. >> it was an incredibly large
7:10 am
sum of money. six figures. no dollar amount. let your imagination ride on that. in less than 24 hours, she is home. >> can we take this and duplicate this process and apply it to other missing person or abduction cases throughout the world, throughout the u.s. especially and tweak it to fit the individual case and see if we can offer support and help in that way. >> both the family and friend the ransom expert say they want to use this case used as a mood he will to help other families who have loved ones who were ab ducked. critics are worried to come out and offer to pay a ransom will lead to more kidnapping. a new rule that takes effect today allows agents with a single search warrant to hack into computers and smart phones at one. a bipartisan group of senators tried but failed from this taking effect. they say it gives the government too much access to computers and phones. the justice department says the rule is necessary to keep up
7:11 am
with changes in technology used by criminals. now fbi agents will be able to go to one judge and get a warrant to access thousands even millions of computers infected by hackers. our question of the day is about this law and digital privacy in general. how far is too far has been a debated question for some time, especially when it comes to national security. today we're asking you how much of your digital privacy are you willing to give up in the name of national security? let us know what you point by posting a comment on our facebook page or tweet us using the hashtag #ktvu. the time is 7:11. a shooting that happened on 580 in oakland, two people were hurt. traffic was brought to a halt for hours. coming up at 7:30, the evidence police are hoping to get as they search for the shooter. up next where donald trump is headed as he steps out publicly for the first time since the election. and we do have a tough morning commute right now. as you can see here in san
7:12 am
francisco. there's a motorcycle accident and 101 is ruined trying to get out of town. if you're trying to get a flight to the airport, we will give you alternates when we come back. well, the clouds have mostly cleared out. it will be a nice day. we start out cold. we will see how long the pattern is on hold and if there are any changes going into the weekend. at t.j.maxx, marshalls and homegoods, we've always believed the holidays should be about joy. where days are filled with magic, not madness. it's why we have amazing prices on thoughtful gifts, everyday.
7:13 am
let's bring back the holidays. kisses deluxe chocolates. with a whole roasted hazelnut, delicate crisps and layers of rich, creamy chocolate, they're twice the size of the kisses chocolates you love. say more with kisses deluxe. i'm at higher risktwice as likfor depression.troke. i'm 26% more likely to develop an irregular heartbeat. i have a 65% higher chance of developing diabetes. no matter who we are, these diseases can be managed or prevented when caught early on. because with better research, the right medicine, and with doctors who help keep me healthy to begin with, we will thrive.
7:14 am
>> welcome back to mornings on 2. it is 7:14. well, donald trump is heading out today on his long anticipated victory tour. the president-elect will make a first stop in indiana where he will take credit for helping to save a thousand jobs there. doug luzader joining us live in washington with the details. doug. >> reporter: dave, good morning. this is kind of a victory lap for donald trump. they're calling it officially a thank you tour. but before that begins and that actually kicks off in ohio today, trump is going to indiana to specifically talk
7:15 am
about air-conditioning manufacturing carrier which has decided to keep some jobs now in the united states. this was president-elect donald trump's last big public appearance, election night. today he will emerge going to indiana where carrier air- conditioning just reversed plans to close a plant and send the jobs to mexico. trump tweeted look forward to going to indiana tomorrow in order to be with the great works of carriers. they will sell many air conditioners. it is not clear what inducements carrier or united technologies were offered but trump's anticipated no, ma'am fee for treasury secretary was elated. >> i think it is terrific. the president-elect and the vice president picked up the phone and called the ceo and said we wanted to keep jobs here. i can't remember the last time that a president did that. >> reporter: it brought a sarcastic response from the white house. >> if he is successful in doing that 804 more times, then he
7:16 am
will meet the record of manufacturing job that's were created in the united states while president obama was in office. >> reporter: on other election fronts a recount begins in wisconsin today, the first of perhaps several led by green party candidate jill stein working in conjunction with hillary clinton's campaign. it is unlikely to overturn the results of the election. emerging from her own election yesterday, nancy pelosi who fought off a challenger to retain her job as house minority leader vowing to fight against the trump administration. >> i would trade nothing to have this opportunity to owe pose an administration. where we can engage, we will. where we need to oppose, we will. will. >> reporter: so pelosi prevailed. this was a real challenge to her leadership. about a third of democrats in the house voted against her yesterday. but ultimately she did carry that vote. in the mean time, this is what the trump cabinet is looking
7:17 am
like. the spots are starting to fill up. there are a number of open spots. it is not clear what the timeline is to fill them. the one in particular is the department of state and the department of defense. back to you guys. >> doug luzader in washington, thank you. new this morning, polls show most americans do not want president-elect donald trump to repel obamacare. the nonpartisan kaiser family foundation conducted the survey one week after the election and found 26% of respondents say they supported repelling the affordable care act. even republicans who backed trump had a change of heart. in october the same survey found 69% of republicans wanted the law repel. after the election the number dropped to 52%. but the percentage that want to see it scaled back is more than doubled. >> interesting. sal, you're right over there. you're in the middle of a busy commute. >> that's right. dunbarton bridge, eastbound, we have a truck accident and a
7:18 am
diesel spill. eastbound heading away from menlo park. westbound is also affected. it is very slow crossing the dunbarton bridge and eastbound we have a truck and sedan that crashed. a lot of damage there. also a lot of diesel apparently spilled on the road. it is a sig alert which means it will be for a while. san mateo bridge not too far away is an alternate. as we look at the san mateo bridge commute, you can see that traffic is not that bad. it looks normal for this time of the morning getting over to highway 101. if you're trying to get a flight at sfo and leaving san francisco, let's take a picture of highway 101. they're clearing a motorcycle accident. and now it is beginning to affect not only 101 but the traffic coming off the bay bridge westbound is slow right as you get off the bay bridge because of this crash 101 at cesar chavez. if you're leaving the city, i would not recommend 101 at all.
7:19 am
go down to 280 as an alternate route. let's look at the toll plaza. it is backed up now. if the crash is san francisco affects traffic on the bay bridge, it will affect traffic at the toll plaza too. that means we could have a big delay this morning trying to get into san francisco. 7:19. let's bring steve in. >> thank you, sal. >> you're welcome. >> you're welcome. my pleasure. clouds have cleared out of here. lots of 30s, a few 20s. there you go. it looks good. a few high clouds in the mix. the trend is to clear out. the breeze will pick up. until then, it is cold. 29 degrees in kelseyville. that's a cold one. and melissa bradley up in mendocino county said a chilly 31. yes, there are very cold temperatures around the bay. most temperatures in the 30s, 40s. cloud cover, there she goes oust the picture, already on the way to southern california.
7:20 am
if it wasn't for the cloud cover, they would be colder down there. it looks like cloud cover, not much more. 13 in flagstaff. 28 in bishop. 39 in blythe. that's a cold one there on the desert. so very cold temperatures all the way down to southern california and us as well. not of a breeze yet. 30s and 40s on the temperatures. half moon bay has been between 39 to 41 degrees. santa rosa 34. we can find even cooler temperatures. there's a 30 along with that 29 in kelseyville. northwest napa, 33. mill valley 39. mid 30s, upper 30s to petaluma. 27 up in truckee. 34 arcade a. around lake tahoe. incline village at 19. next week possibility of single digits or below and very cold air comes in. until that happens, low pressure south, high pressure to the north. the clouds clear out rapidly.  they have done that for most.
7:21 am
sunny to mostly sunny today. temperatures upper 50s to low 60s. tomorrow looks like a breezy to windy day, especially the higher elevations. it will be a little warmer but the days are short as we're now into december. there will be a north wind. temperatures near average to slightly above. just a little bit above here. i don't think they will stay there past saturday. it will be close as we head into sunday. sunday looks okay. but then changes sunday night and then a cold wind kicks in on sunday. >> my family is excited for the snow. we went to the garage and got the goggles and snow bibs. >> all the good stuff. >> we wore it last night. if you don't deliver. >> next week, it's going to be cold up there. >> they're more than ready. >> you're going to need it. >> thank you, steve. >> all right. >> 7:21. a video by bart featuring green is under investigation. the allegations being made involving the recent election. plus, he is the second man to ever step on the moon.

a doctor. buzz aldrin was the second man to ever walk on the moon after neil armstrong. the first fire was monday in gatlinburg near the great smokey mountains national park. investigators say it was human caused. strong winds fanned the flames, sparking other fires and forcing thousands to evacuate. the danger is still there for first responders and for the families trying to get back home. >> the search is so important to go into all of these homes, all of these rental cabins, all these -- you know, search every house in gatlinburg. and that's a major job because you have trees down and power lines down, which is -- some of them are still live. >> hundreds of homes were destroyed in the fires. the fires caught a lot of people by surprise because it spread so quickly. only 10% contained this

7:32 am
slow commute from oakland to the south part of san francisco. i would recommend 280 as an alternate route. those are major traffic delays at the moment. 7:32. let's go back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. a man and his girlfriend who were shot yesterday on 580 in oakland yesterday they are recovering this morning. investigators want to know if that incident is connected to other freeway shootings in the east bay in the past year. christien kafton is at oakland police headquarters with more on this and the search for the shooter. >> reporter: yeah. good morning, dave. that man and woman injured in the incident. at last report they were in stable condition. no updates on their conditions so far this morning. we can tell you that a family member tells ktvu that they have no idea why this couple would be targeted. >> my cousin wasn't into anything. neither was the female. we have no idea. all they do is work and take care of their kids. >> reporter: oakland police say the shooting happened around

8:00 am
it left behind cold temperatures. jake says very brisk start to the day. we've had upper 20s for some. you can see the sky -- there it goes. the cloud cover got out of here quick. it will continue to march towards southern california. cloudy down there. if it wasn't for the cloud cover, they would be colder than that. very cool temperatures down in southern california. las vegas made it to 38 years. the north wind is starting. that will pick up throughout the day, especially up in the higher elevations. not that bad yet. i think everybody eventually in the 30s and 40s. we will end up 25 up in truckee. 35 in ukiah. cold air coming down. it will be sunny and breezy. temperatures in the upper 50s to low 60s. still the dumbarton bridge, sal. >> that's right. we have a crash involving a truck and another car blocking two eastbound lanes. traffic is getting by in one lane. but it is really backing it up. westbound though all the lanes

8:13 am
conditioning plant after meeting with the company to save jobs before heading to mexico. trump supporters say it shows the president-elect can save american jobs. >> just as the president-elect and the vice president-elect they will go to indiana, mike pence's indiana and join with carrier and announce that thousand jobs or so will remain in the united states of america. that's exactly what he ran on. >> what i would observe is if he is successful in doing that 804 more times, then he will meet the record of manufacturing jobs that were created in the united states while president obama was in office. >> president-elect trump and vice president-elect mike pence will also appear at a rally in cincinatti. the first stop of a thank you tour in the swing state that's gave mr. trump his will be victory. nancy pelosi will keep the leadership job she has held since 2003. >> this opportunity is a special one to lead the house democrats, bring everyone together, as we go forward.

dumbarton bridge, i wonder if people are taking other routes to work and school today. >> yes. we're checking in that. we're looking at the other approaches to some of the other bridges including the bay bridge. i'm happy to say things are a little better. 45 minutes from the carquinez bridge to the mac maze is not bad. when you get to the bay bridge toll plaza you will see the traffic is going to be busy at the toll plaza. they cleared the accident in san francisco on southbound 101. and that should have a big effect on what we have on the bay bridge. i want to mention the dumbarton bridge, pardon me, because westbound traffic has been slow because of an eastbound crash heading from menlo park over to newark involving a big rig and a car. one lane is open eastbound but that is slowing traffic down. westbound you can get a good look at it near the side of the river. they are cleaning up a diesel spill as well. what you need to know is it will be a tough commute. i would use either the san
8:17 am
mateo bridge or 237. both of those would be crowded but i would recommend it over the dumbarton bridge commute. let's go out and take a look at some other things we have going on. in fact, that's it that we have for this report. i'll look at the south bay next time around. steve. >> that's enough, sal, with that dumbarton bridge. >> it is enough. >> thank you, sir. all quiet right now. it is going to get cold and windy next week. probably not a lot of snow in the sierra unless things change. we are off to a good start here from october and parts of november. the latter half of november was good. on december 1st, not too shabby here for squaw, sugar bowl, mount rose and kirkwood. we could use more. maybe there will be some coming down the old weather pipeline. 32 up in bear valley. thank you olivia for that information. cloud cover was there this morning. it is long gone now except for a little patch of fog around livermore. that is thick. really thick. it won't last much longer. the dry air will get rid of it.
