7:00 am
weeks after the worst flooding that the city of san jose has seen this decades, state and federal officials will be coming to neighborhoods like this to look at the mess. a situation that has been unfolding since 1:30 this morning, an armed manholed up inside of a home. we got information from neighbors about what started this standoff. we will have more on that on mornings on 2. this is ktvu mornings on 2. >> 7:00 this tuesday morning. march 7th. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> and good morning. i'm dave clark. it is cold outside. >> it is. >> steve paulson knows all about it. he has your forecast. he is right over here. >> it is cold. it was cold yesterday. it is cold this morning. there is cloud cover moving into the north. that's for sure. we will get a mix of clouds and sun and fog also around the area. san francisco coming over san pablo gay and crockett where you are, some also in the event
7:01 am
bay. once that lifts, chief gearhead. good morning. steve. view from bear creek road. santa cruz mountains at 2100 feet. i like that name. chief gearhead. nice day on blossom hill. more clouds to the north. low clouds are working their way in. there is a strong system moving into the north. that will drag across high and mid level clouds. sonoma north is in line for rain. again, it is a rain year. not south certainly but to the northern it looks like it. 30s and 40s for many. kelseyville, 39. that is balmy. put your shorts on. that's the warmest they have been in weeks. napa 37. mill valley also at 39 degrees. cloud cover will increase certainly up to the north. santa rosa in the mix for precipitation. look at all of the cloud cover. it works its way through.
7:02 am
we will get some sun and partly cloudies out of that low and high clouds. upper 50s and low 60s. here he is, mr. sal castaneda. >> steve, i just got asked on twitter by one of my followers patrick connor says will we ever feel the warmth of the sun again. >> yes. >> and i was going to tell him with your approval that we will warm up in the next few days. >> that is correct. >> there you go. >> you do listen. >> i listen to what you say. >> likewise. >> thank you, steve. >> any time. >> let's look at the bay bridge toll plaza. it will be slow. people ask why do you always show the toll plaza? if i don't, people get upset. they want to see that everything is fine here. if this commute goes bad, as you know, it has a far reaching effect. a lot of the east bay commutes are affected by this. this morning, it is just normal. about a 20 to 25 minute delay. no major problems on the span. also looking at the 880 commute
7:03 am
between hayward and union city. it is slow. 680 from dublin to pleasanton is slow. not as bad as yesterday. in fact if you're getting on 680 after the grade, it looks good all the way into san jose. speaking of the san jose commute, 101, 280 and 85 are about normal through the area. you will see slow traffic. we're looking at the peninsula as w traffic on 101 in san mateo is slow. the rest of the peninsula looks decent for your drive. at 7:03, let's go back to the desk. >> we begin with the developing story in redwood city where an armed suspect is in standoff with police. this is a live look at what is happening at the scene in the area of harrison avenue and clinton street near el camino real. i correct myself. these pictures were taken just minutes ago. authorities received a 911 call at 1:30 this man who was suicidal and had taken a significant amount of prescription drugs. after police arrived, they heard gunshots from inside the home. at this point the s.w.a.t.
7:04 am
team is at the scene. we have been talking with people in the neighborhood. a neighbor tells ktvu that police knocked on his door early this morning and said that he and other people on the block had to evacuate their homes. at this point the situation is still unfolding. it started at 1:30. and here we are into the 7:00 hour and the situation has remained much the same. we're following the story for you in our news room and live at the scene. we will bring you more information as soon as we get it. we're also getting new details to bring you in morning on an overnight shooting that involves richmond police. they say an officer fired shots at a burglary suspect at about 1:00. it started with a call about an auto burglar near san pablo avenue. the man ran away and got into a vehicle and they say that man tried to run an officer over. that's when the officer fired his gun. no one was injured. the suspect though got away. you can see that parts of the
7:05 am
neighborhood are still taped off with yellow crime scene tape. if you witnessed anything, please call police. the time is 7:05. happening today. state and federal emergency management officials will get a close look at the flood damage in san jose from last month. the worst flooding there in more than 20 years. ktvu's allie rasmus, you're in rock springs. that area was really hard hit. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dave. yes. we're near center in the rock springs area of san jose, one of three neighborhoods heavily impacted by the flooding that happened last month. it happened two weeks ago. but you can still see evidence of some of the damage where we're stand willing right now. you can see some of the vehicles parked on the street where the mud line comes up virtually to the roof, to the top of the car. like the honda parked across the street. you can see where the water came up almost to the top of the windows there on the driver's side. several apartment buildings on this block alone are yellow
7:06 am
tagged and there are piles of damaged items, many appliances, electronics now stacked up in front of some of the homes and buildings ready to be thrown away. the flooding caused an estimate $50 million to private property and another $20 million to public property. fema are in san jose this week. they're supposed to be visiting homes and businesses in the affected areas today and tomorrow to assess the damage so they can determine what state and federal emergency funds san jose could get from all of this. the city has already submitted a preliminary report on the damage to santa clara county officials. that report estimates more than 500 homes in san jose were damaged by the flooding, with 140 of those homes sustaining major damage. as of sunday night, there were still about 180 people staying in a community shelter because they had nowhere else to go. the community has raised more than $6 million in private
7:07 am
funds through the silicon valley foundation to help the flood victims. but san jose is also seeking state and federal emergency funds, which, again, is why representatives from the agencies will be getting a look at the damage and the flood aftermath for themselves later today. back out here live, this residential neighborhood is near felan and center. we don't see a lot of people out here this morning. that may be because a lot of folks are not living or staying in the homes anymore because of the extent of the damage. we see a few people coming out to do repair work. we saw this crew out here this morning who said that they're in the process of replacing some of the electrical systems in some of the affected buildings. the guy out here said obviously the electrical systems were not waterproof, not water resistant. so there's a lot of work that needs to be done out here. back to you guys. >> all right. allie rasmus in san jose, thank you. in the meantime city leaders were criticized how
7:08 am
they prepared for the floods and responded. now we're hearing that santa clara county is one of the few local counties that don't have a wireless communication network run by fema to alert residents. that system integrated and warning system sends a text message to people about an emergency. republicans revealed their replacement plan for the affordable care act. they're certain to run into resistance from democrats but also from fellow republicans who think the plan goes too far or not far enough. doug luzader has more from capitol hill. >> reporter: this is the republican plan. it was just released yesterday. and the question for the gop is whether they have struck the right balance here to keep enough republicans on board. remember the size of obamacare, a law so complex spanning so many pages that its shear bulk
7:09 am
became the rallying cry for the opposition. this one is 123 pages and doesn't have a catchy title across the top but this would undue president obama's signature legislative achievement. republicans trying to push it through congress says it will work. >> people have called for an end to obamacare. in the last election they made their voices clear one more time. >> reporter: it removes many obamacare taxes and federal mandates, attempting to make insurance more affordable by savings accounts and offering tax credits with a cutoff for higher incomes to allow for the purchase of insurance. the popular obamacare provisions remain including preexisting conditions coverage and allow children to stay on parents' plans until the age of 26. democrats were quick to denounce it. >> it will raise cost on average americans and cut back
7:10 am
on benefits. average americans under the republican plan will pay more and get less. >> reporter: but it may change the idea of the health insurance entitlement. president trump may now have to sell it to conservatives who think it is just obamacare light as well as moderate republicans who are balking at reductions in medicaid spending. that is the trick, getting the numbers to work. republicans are relying on some of the same budget gimmicks that president obama relied upon to get his plan through. on capitol hill, doug luzader, fox news. the time is 7:10. in the meantime the plan by the oakland raiders to move to las vegas got a boost. they received from bank of america has offered to put up $650 million to build a new stadium in las vegas. the raiders made their pitch before the nfl finance committee in florida.
7:11 am
oakland also made a presentation led by ronnie lott who wants to build a new stadium in oakland at the coliseum site. however league sources say there was nothing new in the oakland proposal. in the meantime the nfl seemed to be impressed with a new offer from bank of america to pay for that las vegas stadium. an nfl executive says bank of america's involvement suggests confidence in the project. bank of america would provide a construction loan that would replace the $650 million that casino mogul sheldon adelson had offered but withdrew. the raiders need the approval of at least 24 of the nfl owners to move to las vegas. a vote could come by the end of this month. libby schaaf is not giving up on the raiders. she issued a statement that reads in part, we made a sound economic case for keeping the raiders in oakland through the creation of what could become one of america's premiere mixed use sporting venues.
7:12 am
the question of the day has to do with the raiders. with the latest developments our question is this: how much hope do you have that the raiders will stay in oakland? let us know what you think by posting a comment to facebook or we love it when you tweet us using #ktvu. >> thank you, gasia. privacy for new mothers who work in san francisco. coming up in 15 men's, the first of its kind policy that is being proposed today. also, dave, i know your answer is going to be no. but for the rest of you, have you ever needed to get out of an awkward conversation when you're at work. >> yes. >> okay. me too. up next, there's a high tech way that you can get some help in doing just that without appearing rude. it's never awkward when you talk about traffic. everyone wants to know about traffic. it is ordinary at the bay bridge. that's somewhat good news. we will take a look at some of the commutes that are beginning to slow down. sunny to the south but
7:13 am
cloudy to the north. maybe a little rain north of santa rosa. teak a closer look at that and fog continues to work its way around the city over san pablo bay.
7:14 am
7:15 am
>> welcome back to mornings on 2. it is 7:15. snap has lost a bit of its luster and invettors are looking to next week. they want to see what the federal reserve may do. pam cook is back in the studio now. you have today's money business, pam. >> yes. it sounds like the federal reserve will talk about interest rates. more likely we will see a rate hike at the meeting next week. a bit of a pull back this morning when the opening bell rang. and we are keeping an eye on the markets. dow is down about 31 points quite now. 20,923. the nasdaq and s&p 500 are
7:16 am
slipping a bit. snap stock is down this morning. almost $2 a share. now just below $22 a share. it lost 12% of its value yesterday. of course snap sored 44% on the first day of public trading followed by more double digit gains on friday. analysts say that is common among what they call sexy tech stocks in the first few days of training but snap is not making a profit yet. general motors will cut more than 1,000 jobs from a plant in michigan. they will be cut from the plant that makes three suvs, the traverse, the buick enclave and the acadia. they will move the production from lancing michigan to spring hill, tennessee. that brings the total number of job cuts to 4400 since november. well, gasia and dave were talking about this. have you ever needed to get out of a conversation, maybe it's awkward? now there is help.
7:17 am
there is a new chrome browser extension called nope. if someone is approaching your desk, hit the button and it sends you a phone call on cue. nope's instructions say look apologetic as the phone rings and pick up the phone. a recorded voice on the end will say hello and then you can quickly excuse yourself and say you really need to take the phone call. the company says it's a way to avoid distracts in the office when you're busy but there are other places that people could use this. >> yes. >> when you're busy and someone is approaching you. >> the unspoken signal at the office for don't bother me, when you were wearing your ear buds. they don't respect that anymore. what? >> exactly or if you're on a plane and your eyes are closed and ear buds are in, they want to chat. >> i want to keep talking. i want to talk to sal for you. i have to go over to sal. hey, sal, you're there now.
7:18 am
how is that -- >> nicely done, dave. >> huh? >> nicely done. i'm sorry. we have to go to sal for traffic. >> how is highway 24 doing. >> thank you. highway 24 is actually okay right now. >> good. >> we're doing okay when it comes to contra costa. there is slow traffic as usual. start with highway 24 and look at that. the traffic will be busy as you drive through this area. you can see that traffic is not too bad here on 24 through lafayette. 680 is slow from concord to walnut creek. it falls within the realm of normal. that's what we want, normal traffic. nothing taking more time than you're used to. the bay bridge is backed up as you can see. we are looking at the commute on 880 southbound. it is jamming now between hayward all the way down to fremont. most of it under the speed limit. 680 out of dublin is slow, mostly through pleasanton. a little bit of slowing on the grade. if you're driving on the
7:19 am
peninsula, we're looking at that. highway 101 is slow northbound and southbound near the 280 interchange. 280 is slow from daly city down to san bruno. those are normal backups. 7:19. let's go to steve. >> sorry, sal. i have to take a call. hello. is your mother home. >> hello. is your refrigerator running. >> yes. >> we have prince albert in a can. there you go. some fog -- [laughter] those over 29 get that, right, dave. >> very true. >> we have not chamber of commerce weather. it's not crystal clear. it's not severe clear. but we have sunshine mixing with clouds. bertha says i can hear the traffic on 80 but i didn't see it from my hill. yes. it is socked in. i know that. some of the fog over in the east bay. but laura k, good morning, sp. good morning. laura loves storms. off and on rain gave us an
7:20 am
additional .22. you know, many, many, many iras have received -- you know, everybody has had good rain. morgan hill and moraga are always up there. maybe it's just that kind of a pattern for them. that is two of many. i have noticed good rainfall for those two locations this entire year. clouds roll in here. mix of sun and clouds. look at the rain line. point marina and over cloverdale, geyserville over the santa rosa coast. 40s due to the cloud cover. a little warmer there. cooler to the south dues to a clearing. 39 concord by the concord pavilion. a lot of 30s here including 36 in san ramon. so colder temps east and south instead of north. a different pattern here. 36 in ukiah. drop 10 for sacramento around

lake tahoe. incline at 24. south lake tahoe coming in at 12. southern california looking good. if you are watching us from phoenix or scottsdale, wherever, spring training activities, today is your last really nice day. the high will be 76. tomorrow the temp goes up by the time you get to thursday and friday. right now it is 50. 25 up in flagstaff. the rain line and the cloud line is right here. look at the cloud cover streaming in here. a lot of cloud cover giving us partly to mostly sunny skies. upper 50s, low 60s. kind of a low process to warm her up. we will warm it up with low 60s. tomorrow looks warmer as everything continues to drift farther north. partly sunny, mostly sunny as we go forward. and the weekend looks okay for right now. dry. >> thank you, steve. >> yep. >> the list of best countries in the world is out and the u.s. doesn't even make it into

7:25 am
store in concord. the car ended up right inside of the store. this happened yesterday afternoon at willow pass road. the driver accidentally stepped on the gas instead of the brake. we went to the scene to see if there was any damage left this morning. part of the store is boarded up but everything for the most part seemed to be back to normal. the time is 7:25. the recent bay area rains have caused major potholes. but you know that. state senator jim bell is proposing a transportation funding package to pay for continued road maintenance instead of just emergency repairs. the senator says when it comes to fixing this, lawmakers can and should be doing better. >> we have a budget that is getting eaten away by these emergency repairs and the damage that has occurred. and it's just going to get worse and worse. >> it is more expensive in the long run to put band-aids on and keep buying band-aids. >> caltrans spent $600 million on emergency road repairs in just the last two months.
7:26 am
the money to pay inform they are measure would involve increasing gasoline taxes and require zero emission vehicles to pay a $100 annual road repair fee. this morning, san francisco supervisor katie pang is hosting a nurse in to show support for working mothers who breast feed. there will be a proposal made to make it easier tore working mothers to pump and breast feed. all locations would include a sink, electrical outlet, seat and surface for woman to use. it also requires companies to approve requests for time to pump. the nurse-in starts at 11:30 this morning at city hall. now to the north bay where later this afternoon some sonoma county voters will decide if there should be a marijuana business tax. if approved measure a would apply to marijuana growers, nurseries and testing labs. supporters say it would help

7:28 am
7:29 am
7:30 am
>> live pictures here as a jewish community center is being evacuated. this is not happening in the bay area but instead the situation is unfolding in davie, florida. where a bomb threat was called in or made against this jewish community center. when the video was up close, we could see a number of people coming out of the center itself. there are similar threats or there have been similar threats issued recently against a jewish community center in rochester, new york. that is the news from today. dave, we remember in the weeks past, there have been a number of similar threats made against jewish community centers and schools. and so today we have these two newer instances to report as we stay on this live picture in florida. at least one police vehicle rushing to the scene. we will stay on top of it and
7:31 am
see what if anything authorities find as they comb through the building meticulously. it is a big disruption to the day and goes along with the sense of fear that many in the jewish community are feeling. we will stay on top of that situation happening across the country. in the bay area, we're waking up to another cold morning this tuesday, march 7th. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> good mornment -- good morning. i'm dave clark. we're going to steve paulson for a look at the forecast. >> temperatures will warm up a little bit. yesterday was a cold day. a lot of mid-50s. cloud cover continues to roll in here. the rain line looks to be about santa rosa north. but more likely into mendocino county and lake county. clouds are coming in in advance of that. that will give some areas cloudy day and others partly sunny. a little south of that. so i will mention it for the sonoma coast and maybe
7:32 am
cloverdale, geyserville. another cold one. the colder temps are in not the north this time. on the peninsula, upper 30s. woodside is 37 degrees. low 40s for hillsborough. elsewhere it will be a combination of the sun, clouds. you can see there's a lot of cloud cover that has to work its way through. low clouds and fog out there. upper 50s to low 60s. not bumping up too much yet. sal, 7:32. anything on your screen that you want to get to. >> traffic is getting busier all over the place. we're seeing traffic in the south bay, for example, that is getting a little slower on 280 up to highway 17. and as we look at the south bay commute, i can put it on the map for and you show you that traffic will be slow not only there but also traffic slow on 85, getting in to saratoga cupertino. 101 is slow most of the way, not all of it but most of the way from the capital expressway
7:33 am
up to mountain view. there are a couple spots where you break free but not a great commute. you can see san mateo and burlingame, the same thing. slow traffic in both directions. i've noticed slow traffic getting over to 280 on 92 out of half moon bay which is a typical commute. slow traffic at the 101/280 interchange in san francisco. in the east bay, the same thing goes. hayward to union city to fremont. and 680 southbound to pleasanton are slow which are typical commutes. bay bridge toll plaza backed up for a 20 to 25 minute delay before you get on to the span. at 7:33, let's go back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. president trump released his new revised executive order on travel and immigration. it is different. it is also more narrow than the original travel ban. critics say it still appears to target muslims. it bans people from six instead
7:34 am
of seven mostly muslim countries. iraq was taken off the list. the pentagon and the state department criticized it because iraq is helping fight isis. those with a green card or visa will not be affected. >> to our allies and partners around the world, please understand this order is part of our ongoing efforts to eliminate vulnerabilities that radical islam i cans islam. in the meantime a fast track program for the h1b visas is also temporarily suspended. silicon valley companies often use the visas to hire and bring in highly skilled foreign employees. applicant that's pay an extra fee can get premium processing speeding up the review time to as little as two weeks. the new suspension of that program is due to begin next month.
7:35 am
government officials say it will ease the backlog of the overall visa processing system. california lawmakers continue their push to make california the nation's first sanctuary state, responding to the trump's administration tougher stance on immigration. a senate bill would ban law enforcement officers across the state from helping immigration agents track down targets for deportation. opponents of the sanctuary state idea say it could make undocumented immigrants in the state more of a target, not less. immigration agents would be forced to look for criminal immigrants in the streets rather than in the jails. >> the very things that they are trying to prevent which is large scale ice immigration sweeps in the communities, they're almost ensuring that will happen. >> we're not looking for a fight. we're not backing down. >> supporters of the sanctuary state legislation say it makes undocumented immigrants afraid
7:36 am
to go to police even when they're victims of crimes. san francisco is spending more than $200,000 for lawyers to defend undocumented immigrants who are facing being deported. mayor ed lee told the public deferred's office to end subpoena the money to hire extra lawyers to represent immigrants. about 150 san francisco residents are detained on immigration holds right now. it is estimated the city has 44,000 undocumented immigrants. in the meantime homeland security department says it is considering separating children from parents who are caught illegally crossing the border into the u.s. that is part of a broader plan to discourage undocumented immigrant families from making that dangerous journey across the border. the administration is looking for a plan that would deter people from central america from coming here to the u.s. the white house says the children who are separated from their parents would be well taken care of. a new survey out today
7:37 am
reveals the u.s. has fallen on the list of best countries in the world. the survey released by us news and world reports shows that america fell three spots to 7th place aamong the world's best companies. switzerland is in the number one spot. the u.s. ranked lower due to citizenship, education and business. among the 21,000 people surveyed in 80 countries, 75% said they lost respect for u.s. leadership after the presidential election. the time is 7:37. oakland bracing for two rallies set for today and tomorrow. today at 11:45, demonstrators will gather at 12th street and broadway demanding climate environmental justice. they will march to local banks that support programs at the
7:38 am
expense of the environment. tomorrow at 5:00, there is a rally in honor of international women's day. police are offering safety tips to businesses and homeowners just in case things at the rallies turn violent. the police advise having good lighting. also add a surveillance system if you can. don't park cars in the streets. bring in all trash bins, outdoor furniture, signs or any other item that could possibly be vandalized. the berkeley police department is defending its officers who used a hands-off approach in response to a violent protest over the weekend. it was between people for and against president trump. berkeley police say some of the fighting didn't want their help and that police didn't want to provoke more violence or injure any bystanders. police also say eight out of the ten people arrested were from here in the bay area. that number includes two teenagers.
7:39 am
the others were there riverside and modesto. instead of exacerbating the problem, we arrested at the time and place of our choosing. more arrests could be coming. i don't know if you heard this, but new this morning, a coroner in britain has confirmed that singer george michael died of natural causes. the statement from the coroner says the 53-year-old super star died from heart failure and an increased build-up of fat in the liver. the coroner says the investigation is now complete. there will be no marin queries. earlier reports said that george michael's death was inconclusive and not suspicious. his partner found him dead at their home on christmas day in southern england. 7:39. we continue to follow developing news in richmond where a burglary suspect tried to run over a police officer. in just minutes, the search still underway for that driver after officers open fire.
7:40 am
also driverless shuttles to take employees around and also where it is being tested right now here in the bay area. as we look at the commute, some commutes already improving. others are still pretty jam packed. like this one on the san mateo bridge. well, some sunshine out there. a lot of high clouds. even fog continues to work et cetera way into the bay area. especially the farther north you go. maybe light rain there. we will take a closer look at it.
7:41 am
7:42 am
>> welcome back to mornings on 2. it is 7:42. people who live in san francisco's sunset district are angry that a burglary suspect who was arrested a couple weeks ago is already back on the streets.

security camera shows thieves stealing things out of jessica bradshaw's home on february 9th. the man in the black hat is 40- year-old joseph depoli already on felony probation. he was arrested but released four days later. the victims and police are angry and frustrated. >> how do we feel totally safe when this is happening all over our neighborhood? >> it's hard to believe that an individual who has committed so many crimes in such a short period of time and has been arrested who was already on probation is allowed to be released by the judicial system. >> now, the police believe depoli is responsible for several break-ins over the president day weekend in the corridor along 34th and 41st avenue and the police believe that he will probably strike again. again. veteran san jose police officer is accused of misdemeanor petty theft. san jose police say back in

7:45 am
with disabilities or parents with strollers. >> if the pilot program works, bishop ranch may add to their fleet. operating 12 of the driverless shuttles by the end of the year. 7:45. for all of you heading out on the road, sal castaneda is here with information that could save you a little bit of time. >> that's right, gasia. thank you very much. we're looking at some of the commutes. make sure that you check in. a lot of people just like to see what they're facing. on highway 24, slow traffic in lafayette and orinda. it is within the norm if you drive this every day. that stretch is taking 20 minutes to drive from the tunnel to here. also a commute where traffic at the bay bridge toll plaza is going to be backing up. it will be like a 20-minute delay before you make it on to the bridge. nothing major. but if you're used to it, you can see it here. northbound 280 in san jose, 101 and 85 are all pretty slow as you come up to the area.
7:46 am
there have been no major problems. on the peninsula, more slow traffic on 101 especially from burlingame all the way down to belmont and redwood city. a longer delay than usual. northbound 101 -- in fact, we will check to see if there is anything in the way. that doesn't look normal to me. meanwhile, let's bring steve in with today's forecast. >> all right, sal. we have a little bit of sun, higher clouds, fog also around. mist and drizzle around rona park. the low cloud can deck coming in. a lot of cloud cover continues to roll in here. that is enhancing the low cloud deck. we my start to talk about a coastal fog deck over the next couple of days. gradually warming up. will today be another -- it is rainy here and sunny over there kind of day? no. unless you're up north. it will be a mix of sun and clouds and low clouds and

higher clouds. any rain should stay north of santa rosa. we can show you that right now. remember it is a rain year. it is a rain year. but the track is lifting northward. as it does, that's where the heaviest precipitation will fall. we are on the southern end of it. point arena over to ukiah and clearlake and around middle town, cloverdale, santa rosa north. could be in for light rain. the farther north you go, moderate to heavy rain. due to the cloud cover, there is actually colder temps to the south and north. kind of a different twist than what we have seen lately. saratoga 39. los gatos, 39 degrees. the energy, the jetstream is focused on northern california. the high clouds take aim at us. we may have a mostly cloudy day. southern california looks good. arizona looks good. the nice comfortable temps on the desert for spring training
7:48 am
ends after today. today's high will be 76. then it goes to 85, 87, 88, 89. on sunday or monday, maybe 90 degrees. just don't say -- my gosh it is hot. we're telling you if you're heading down there, it could warm up quick. it looks like it's going to. if you're not, don't worry about it. some of that is painting heavy rain totals over the next five to seven days. not here though. santa rosa, i should say. ukiah north, not much here. but eureka and crescent city, there are projections for the next couple of days. the core of the jetstream is moving north. even though that high pressure builds in, cloud cover continues to kind of bleed on through as we say. now the weekend people are already asking about saturday. it looks okay. it will be partly sunny to partly cloudy. sunday may be a little better. this could change but i don't think we will get any rain out of it. dealing with clouds.
7:49 am

7:55 am
actions ultimately resulted or contributed in the death of a child. people who use google's virtual assistant might be getting fake news updates. several people have noticed that google home is reading back bad information responding to certain current event questions. the reason appears to be because it quotes google's own snippets. those show up at the top of the page for certain search items. google is reportedly trying to fix the problem. however, the featured snippets program will probably stay. facebook says the rollout of the new fake news warning labels has begun. it says disputed stories will be checked by several organizations, including the associated press and factchecker.org. if there's misinformation, a disputed news flag will appear next to the story. there will also be a link to an explanation. users, you cannot flag stories yourselves but you can ask

santa rosa north it looks like light rain. the fog working its way around the san pablo bay from crockett and a little bit the in the east bay and over the bay into san francisco. so a little bit of a coastal fog deck the next couple of days. a lot of high clouds continue to stream across. more cloud cover to the north. look at the rain line. cloverdale north over no lake county. some of that turning to snow in higher elevations. that will be the focus today. bands of high clouds will continue to work its way in. eventually the south bay will go from more sun to more clouds later on. we had some 30s. but most locations are running a little cooler. rain to the north or very light precipitation. and then sonoma county, farther north, moderate rain. south there is too much cloud cover to go sunny. some sun but a lot of clouds.

8:03 am
101 is smooth through south city. >> back to the developing story we have been covering in redwood city this morning where an armed suspect and a standoff has just been taken into custody. we're bringing you a live picture from the scene. you can see a lot of police and emergency vehicles in the area of harrison avenue and clinton street. not far from el camino real. it started when authorities got a 911 call at 1:30 this morning from a man who was suicidal and had taken a significant amount of prescription drugs. the s.w.a.t. team has been on the scene for hours. >> he went inside. and that's when everything started. i heard about three to four gunshots maybe. and then the officers came through the back of our apartments and evacuated everyone from around the area. >> authorities blocked off several streets in the area. no reports of injuries. police say north star school
8:04 am
and mckinley school are closed while the scheduled field trip for students is meeting at whole foods instead of on campus. once again, the update we got minutes ago, the suspect in this overnightstandoff has now been taken into custody without incident. we're also following developing news in an overnight shooting involving richmond police. they fired shots at a burglary suspect at about 1:00 this morning. it started as a call of an auto burglary taking place near san pablo. police arrived to find the man and tried to talk to him but he ran away, got into a vehicle and they say he tried to run an officer over. that's when one officer fired his gun. the officer is okay but the authorities at this point aren't sure if the suspect was shot. >> the suspect vehicle continued and fled the scene. now, at this time we don't know whether or not the suspect was struck or if the suspect vehicle was struck. we have contact that they notified all local hospitals,
8:05 am
anybody that may come in for any type of injuries that would be consistent with gunshot wound. >> police only have a vague description of the suspect. they say he was driving a silver four door mercedes from the early 2000s. if you saw anything, call richmond police. more help is on the way for victims of last month's flooding in san jose. state and federal officials are here in the bay area trying to help people get back on their feet. allie rasmus is joining us live from san jose this morning with more on the story. good morning to you, allie. >> reporter: good morning, alex. two weeks ago this neighborhood where we're standing was under several feet of water. we're about less than half a mile away from coyote creek. you will recall last month because of the heavy rainfall, the creek overflowed its banks, inundating several neighborhoods. this was one of them.
8:06 am
you can still see some of the damage. there are electronics and appliances stacked up outside of the homes and apartments. we talked to one resident who says her landlord called her yesterday and told her to expect some visitors to come in and inspect the house to look at some of the damage. representatives from fema and the emergency office will be in town visiting homes and businesses in the affected areas to assess the damage so they can determine what state and federal emergency funds san jose is eligible for. the city has already submitted a preliminary report on the amount of the damage to the county. the report estimates that the preliminary cost of the mess, more than $50 million to private property. more than 500 homes in san jose were damaged by the flooding, with 140 of those homes sustaining major damage. as of sunday night, there were still about 184 people staying in a community shelter. now, there has been some private fundraising that has
8:07 am
been down to help some of the flood victims to the tune of about $6 million. san jose is also seeking state and federal emergency funds which is why representatives from the agencies will be looking at the damage and the flood aftermath for themselves later today. back out here live, again, we showed you the stack of flood damaged items in front of the homes out here. a short time ago a city maintenance crew was going through the neighborhoods. and one worker explained they cleared out some of the stuff just yesterday. but the clean-up is an ongoing process so every day when they come out here, there are more personal items and belongings and flood damaged stuff that some of the residents leave outside in order to have that stuff taken away. back to you guys. >> so much more work to be done in that neighborhood. allie rasmus live in san jose. thank you. san jose city leaders were criticized how they prepared for the floods and how they responded. now we're hearing that santa clara county is one of the few
8:08 am
local counties that doesn't have a wireless communication network run by fema to alert residence departments. the bay area news group says the system known as ipause sends a text message to people about emergencies. approval for the system happened almost two years ago. but it was delayed because the county has not come up with a policy about how and when to use it. but the counsel esays it should be operational by the end of the month. staff just need to be trained on it first. police say it is lucky no one was hurt after a car drove through an am/pm convenience store in concord. look at these pictures from concord police. the car ended up right inside of the store. this happened yesterday afternoon at willow pass road. police say the driver accidentally stepped on the gas instead of the brake. we went toity see to see there was any damage and found that part of the store was boarded up but everything seemed to be back to normal.
8:09 am
republicans could begin pushing the replacement to the affordable care act tomorrow. they may face resistance from democrats and republicans who think that it plan goes too far or not far enough. >> reporter: this is the republican plan. it was just released yesterday. and the question for the gop is whether they have struck the right balance here to keep enough republicans on board. remember the size of obamacare? a law so complex, spanning so many pages that its sheer bulk became the rallying cry for the opposition. the gop plan is relatively svelte by comparison, 123 pages and no catchy title. this would largely undue president obama's signature legislative achievement and the republicans about to push it through congress say it will work. >> in election after election, the american people have called for an end to obamacare. in the last election they made their voices clear one more time. >> reporter: in broad strokes
8:10 am
the plan removes many obamacare taxes and federal mandates. attempting to make insurance more affordable by giving savings accounts and large tax credits with a cutoff for higher incomes to allow for the purchase of insurance. the popular obamacare provisions remain, including coverage for preexisting conditions and it would allow children to remain on their parents plans up to the age of 26. democrats were quick to denounce it. >> it will raise costs on average americans and cut back on their benefits. average americans under the republican plan will pay more and get less. >> reporter: but it may change the idea of the health insurance entitlement. president trump may now have to help sell it to conservatives who think it is just obamacare light as well as moderate republicans who are looking at reductions in medicaid spending. that is the ring here, getting some of the numbers to work.
8:11 am
republicans are relying on some of the same budget gimmicks that president obama relied upon to get his plan through. on capitol hill, doug luzader, fox news. at 8:11, we're following developing news. more threats happening at jewish centers across the country. at 8:30, where the latest threats are happening this morning. plus, new allegations surrounding facebook users. up next, what a bbc investigation uncovered about child pornography on the site.

>> welcome back to mornings on 2. there are indications the nfl may be more impressed with the raiders proposed move to las vegas than the effort underway to keep them in oakland. >> both sides made presentations yesterday in a closed door meeting with the league at a south florida hotel. a contingent by ronnie lott discussed the coliseum site. league sources say there was nothing new in the proposal and did not address the oakland a he's who have a lease at the coliseum. the team is teaming up with bank of america to build a stadium in las vegas. it would replace the $650 million that the casino mogul adelson had offered but then withdrew. some called it a respected lender to the sports industry
8:15 am
and the involvement shows confidence in the project. a group fighting to keep the raiders in oakland does not sound optimistic. >> i'm sad that we have to go through this relocation saga. it makes me wonder if the relocation is approved like what i will do about being a season ticket next year. >> keep in mind the raiders still need approval for this move from at least 24 out of the 32 nfl owners in order to make that move to las vegas. a vote could come as soon as the end of this month. mayor schaaf is not giving up. she said we made a sound economic case to keep the raiders in oakland. with these latest developments we return to you for the question of the day which is this, how much hope do you have that the raiders will stay in oakland? let us know what you think by posting a comment to our facebook page or tweet us using #ktvu. a bbc investigation reveals that facebook users are

8:18 am
south bay. hopeful that the 280 commute is moving along better than it normally does. no major problems getting up to highway 17. the commute doesn't look that bad here. over to the maps, northbound 101 and 280 are going to be busy. and so is 85. so all of the freeways are crowded. but, again, as gasia mentioned, today we're a little bit better because of the lack of wet weather. you can see san mateo and burlingame, my friends in san mateo and burlingame always complain about this. 101 is a mess between burlingame in both directions. traffic is a little slow. here is a look at 280 and 101 in san francisco. it is slow -- 280 is slow down to san bruno. the east bay commute will be okay. here is a look at the bay bridge toll plaza. traffic here is just moderate. 8:18. let's bring steve in here. >> because 92 merging on to 101, is that why, sal. >> that's one of them.
