has not yet had to pay yet. the museum of ice cream will extend its stay in the city at least until the end of may. >> i have a couple of shoots in san francisco that i'm working on that i will have for you in the coming days. >> are you going to be in the news van. >> i am. i like talking on the two-way.
9:01 am
one of the hardest aspects of this job is when it is raining. if you're trying to get someone to talk to talk to you on the street, do your work when it is raining, it is harder. >> getting the equipment dry. >> so it is -- >> it is a nightmare. i would rather be in the snow than the rain sometimes. >> really. i agree. it is less than a burden. >> when i was a general assignment reporter, i had my rain gear on point. >> on point. >> my good shoe that's didn' -- shoes that didn't leak. if you're wet, you're miserable. >> that's right. according to the weather and steve, you know this as well, the morning commute can be miserable because of more rain. >> steve, you and i have been talking about san francisco airport. the flights are delayed coming in. some say by four hours average. now, do you think that rain is going to stay with us for the next few days? because if it does, flights will be delayed. >> they also changed your
9:02 am
flight pattern. they have a southeast wind. sometimes that has something to do with it. also the off and on rain. it doesn't look that bad. maybe things will pick up here. tomorrow morning will be tough. we could get heavier rain. sfo has only had about half an inch of rain. it is in the santa cruz mountains and also up towards marin county and russian river. it has begun in santa barbara. they now have three quartersof an inch. some of the lightning coming in, san luis obispo, vandenberg. the heavy rain has digged in. this took a while. they didn't have much. that is an intense brand. also associated with the band coming in from the southwest. that is giving us the muggy feel today. and then the low to the west is starting to funnel our direction. it will be cloudy, mostly cloudy. and the rainfall forecast, i mean, santa barbara -- that's just in town. not in the hills where they could double or triple that amount. fresno, four and a third. that is tremendous rain for the san joaquin valley.
9:03 am
ross in marin county, three and a quarter. santa cruz, coming in on two inches of rain. kent field over three. occidental. then it tails offment that will be -- off. that will be the focus today. san anselmo, two and three quarters. there is your moisture. it will continue to work its way in. snow levels very high. going up above 7,000 feet. look for the cloudy, mostly cloudy day. and some of the rain will work its way into marin county for four inches of rain after everything is said and done. 64 down in carmel. not that warm in santa cruz. but that is the source of this really warm air. the winter storm warning starts at 5:00 p.m., you guys. it will be heavy wet snow. it will go way down by friday. speaking of the snow, after many parts of the sierra picked up five feet of snow from the
9:04 am
last wave of storms, more on the way as steve says. it will be coming down in the higher he will vagues, 7500 feet. up to two feet expect. if you are driving to the sierra and you don't have four- wheel drive or snow tires, bring the chains. another late season storm is paralyzing the east this morning. the fourth nor'easter this month. it is being felt from new england down to washington, d.c. much of the federal government is closed down because of the latest storm. it is not cold enough to hold off the cherry bless only festival. the effects of the storm are being felt across the country as thousands of flights have already been canceled. a 16-year-old girl is in critical condition with life threatening injuries after a shooting in maryland at a high school. about 70 miles from washington, d.c. a 14-year-old boy was also shot. he is in stable condition. police say the shooter a 17-
9:05 am
year-old student, was armed with a handgun. he was shot and killed by a school resource officer that responded to the scene. according to police, the suspect had a prior relationship with the female victim. the male student who was hurt was an innocent bystander. school resource officers are deployed on many campuses in the bay area. >> ktvu's cristina rendon says the city of oakland has its own system. >> reporter: some campuses have armed police officers. others have unarmed guards. but the ultimate goal is the same, the safety of students and staff. >> i think the security of students in oakland is really safe. >> reporter: the police chief for the oakland unified school dis, the only bay area school district to have its own police department. each school is assigned an unarmed resources officer. 20 sworn armed police officers work for the district and respond to calls. >> i would like to have armed
9:06 am
police officers on campus. i can tell you that a lot of general public will push back on that. we get differing views from the community. even though i don't have a uniform officer sitting in the school, they're a couple minutes away from getting there because they're dedicated to the school district. >> reporter: san francisco, san jose, fremont, mount diablo, san ramon valley and west contra costa county all have armed resource officers at high schools. some are assigned to middle schools too. >> right now school resource officers are on campus. >> reporter: west contra costa unified school district spokesman says the district passed a positive school climate resolution that includes collecting data on the effectiveness and actions of school resource officers. >> there are those that want to see thymion. there are plenty of people that want to see them remain. all we're doing is collecting data and getting information so the superintendent can make an informed recommendation to the
9:07 am
school board. >> as long as you only have one way in or out, it would work perfectly. when you have a school built for, you know, the community to be able to come to school, you have multiple entrances and exits. you won't be able to handle it. you would have to put a metal detector at every exit of every school. it would be too expensive. >> reporter: a spokesperson for the california department of education says it does not track how many districts have armed guards on campuses, saying it is left up to the individual districts to decide whether or not they have school resource officers. cristina rendon, ktvu fox 2 news. as christina just mentioned, the west contra costa school district is considering to remove the resource officers off of school campuses. the mayor disagrees with the idea. he is joining us live this morning. why do you disagree. >> i disagree because there should not be a price on school
9:08 am
safety for our students. i feel that the school district is using this school policy climate policy as a way to save two and a half million dollars. >> you think it is money, not the principle of o'e -- overpolicing. >> absolutely not. we had a presentation by our chief a week ago at the city council meeting. there was 1100 calls of service at the school campus. there was at least 16 cases that were to a -- that were at a point where they needed to be booked. uh-huh. >> okay. 16 cases where there was probably an arrest. 31 where there was some sort of a citation written. so the article that came out where somebody stated it is school to prison. >> uh-huh. >> pipeline is absolutely false. >> what about the overpolicing? some say that these kids are
9:09 am
dealing with police officers for relatively minor infractions. >> okay. again, what is a minor infraction? somebody bullying and taking somebody's electric pad? their computers. where do we put a line on that. our sfo officers are trained in mental health. they are trained to work with the students. they're not there to bully them or intimidate them. i went to the school board meeting in december of 2017. it was shocking to hear some of the stories. one student says she was tackled from behind by a school resource officer in el cerrito. there is no officer that i know of, unless someone had a gun that would tackle somebody from behind, especially a woman, a young female. >> you're saying that maybe some people's feeling in the community about police is being exaggerated to, you know, get these officers off campus. >> what i found out recently is
9:10 am
there was a grant of $2 million that was given out to the school district by assembly man thurman in june of 2017. the resolution for the school climate policy didn't get adopted until december 2017. there was not one call to any official, any elected official in west county either have the assembly man's office or the school board. what is going on? as of today, i've been out on this, still have not had a call from the -- many of the school board members at all. >> we had a store knee another district just today that we read about students not being able to afford the ap test because they're strapped for cash and they can't afford to give the students the $94, whatever it is. in your district, you mentioned the two and a half million dollars. one article says take the money and spend it on teachers and counselors. why not do that instead of have these officers on campus. >> mike, i don't want to get on
9:11 am
the school district. but as a city, when we have any money item that comes up, we have to identify the money source. this school district has been getting recently they have given raises to all of the teachers, the unions, not one fund -- they haven't showed where they're going to get the money from. they're spending the money. none of their resolutions have a funding source when they pass acor adopt any item that has funding in it. their principle of management is flawed in the school district. so i have no idea where their money is coming from. but certainly i don't think that it should come from the s ros. >> let they ask you something, do you think there is a different motive for trying to get the police officers off of the campus than what they are saying? >> i -- yeah. i think that what is occurring is that 9 west controversy -- the west contra costa school
9:12 am
district is a guinea pig for the state to try. i'm concerned, hey, what are we doing here? i mean, how do we handle combative disruptive behavior in a classroom? the teachers are not allowed to touch the students. the school district has campus security. the campus security is not able to understand and resolve the situation with students. police officers are. that's what they're trained to do. >> you're saying an armed police officer should respond if there is a class disturbance. >> i have no idea what is going on in the classrooms. i think from what i heard from our sros, they don't go to the classrooms. that usually security brings them in and then our sros talk to the student in the principal's office. okay. from my knowledge, this is what our sros said. they are not inside of the classrooms, arresting kids. >> we saw what happened in maryland yesterday. >> we did. >> with an armed police officer confronting and eliminating a threat. >> well, i -- it's a sad part of society.
9:13 am
i mean, that was an illegal weapon. a 17-year-old with an illegal weapon. yes, fortunately, there was a trained police officer there. we also have to remember, this district attempted to have their own police force years ago. they failed so badly that they lost or certification, they came to the cities and asked for the police with the police departments. that's why we're there today. i will mention i reached out to the school district and asked hem to join us on the 9. i have not heard back. certainly if they do, we will share that here. coming up, preparing for a potential disaster. we will take you to san jose airport where right now a full training drill is happening.
9:14 am

9:17 am
bomber. now the big question, did he have help and could there be more explosive packages still out there? >> although the situation appears to be over, we urge the public to remain alert and report any suspicious activity or packages or devices. >> reporter: around 2:00 a.m., outside round rock, texas, police engaging with the 23- year-old suspect, marc anthony condit. he detonated a bomb inside of his car as s.w.a.t. teams closed in, killing himself and injuring an officer. police are confident that the suspect is connected to all of the bombings over the last three years. >> they pieced all of the information together. >> reporter: the governor of texas says the mastermind behind the attacks is dead. >> he did not have a job. >> we do know at least on our early information that he did not have a criminal history. >> he was not ex-military. we don't know how he gained the skill set. >> reporter: as police try to
9:18 am
piece together who this guy was, where he learned to build bombs, if he had help and what his motivation was. >> they have to go back through his -- his data, his cell phone history, anything that tracks him around the community to look in those areas to see did he put out another trip wire package laying in wait for another victim. as condit's neighbors are waking up to a flurry of police activity. >> praying for the family. and i can't imagine what they're going through. >> reporter: police are warning the people of austin to remain cautious because they are unsure if there were more explosive packages. they are urging anyone who sees something suspicious to call 911. lauren blanchard, ktvu fox 2 news. alex savidge is live at the airport right now.

9:34 am
last saw us. we're in montecito right in front of montecito creek. you can see this creek it is moving fast and furious. we -- the rain is also coming down very hard. now, after the january mudslides, the mud actually flew over the railing that you see right over here. crews out here told us if the mudslides are intense enough, this creek could fill up in 30 seconds. we have been hearing for the last 15 minutes of what sounds like thunder but it is actually boulders shifting. the january mudslides actually wiped out some of the homes on this street. you can see some of the destruction in the homes on the right over here. 21,000 people are under mandatory evacuation right now. search crews have been going from home to home reminding people to get out now. in fact they're still warning people if you're still here, it is not too late. leave immediately. as of right now we are still watching this creek. it is moving very fast.

escapable of college work. assistant principal coordinates the ap program at oakland tech. there are about 600 students in ap classes and many can't afford the test fees. >> when you start imposing fees, then you start to differentiate who has access to what. >> reporter: taylor says it is an example of income inequality leading to opportunity inequality. >> you see your hard work and then it just goes, well, you don't have the money to pay for it. so then how are you going to make it. >> reporter: juliana she's she and her mother will figure out a way to pay the fee, after recently downsizing to a smaller apartment. >> we're not poor. and we're middle income. but in the bay area, you know, with the cost of rents, it is crazy. i mean, we just are -- we're struggling. >> the ap course was like in -- was a way that i can prove my -- my abilities to myself. but seeing that it is like $94 per ap test, it made me question whether i'm going to have the opportunity to do so.
9:38 am
>> reporter: the deadline to pay the fees is march 30th. administrators here at oakland tech say they will do everything in their power to help raise the money to help hundreds of students take that test to realize their dream of college. in oakland, amber lee, ktvu fox 2 news. all morning we have been following developing news in the struck of austin bomb -- string of austin bombings. police are evacuating the area around the home of the austin bombing suspect and federal authorities are preparing to deploy an anti--explosives robot. this comes after police closed in on the suspect early this morning. you see that scene here after condit dead nateed a bomb in his vehicle, essentially committed suicide before police could capture him. right now we know that the fbi has police near the home. neighbors are being told to
9:39 am
leave their homes. these orders come after investigators have been searching the home and surrounding the area. police have been clear in saying that just because the suspect is dead doesn't mean that the threat is over. we don't know what he has been doing for the last day or so. facebook shareholders suing the company. we talk about this with in other words on call about the problems facing the site and whether mark zuckerberg might actually testify.
9:40 am
at ikea, we believe that everything you need should be within reach. that anything that matches your taste can match your budget. that green living doesn't have to cost much green. we believe that you should always have room for the little things. and that your dream kitchen should work as hard as you do. ikea family members get 15% back when you spend $2000 or more at the ikea kitchen event. and financing is now available with the ikea projekt credit card.
9:41 am
>> there are now several reports that facebook ceo mark zuckerberg will make a state about the data breach. a group of investors are suing the company saying they suffered financial losses because facebook did not tell 50 million of its users that it
9:42 am
allowed third parties to obtain their personal information. the stock was down 9% before the opening bell. monday had its worst day in history. we look at the numbers now. the stock is up 2 and a half percent. that could result in facebook being hit with fines of close to 1 trillion dollars says one legal expert. >> joining us via skype is ryan of in other words of call. if zuckerberg talks publicly within the next 24 hours, what do you think he is going to and a what should he say. >> i think he will have to make it clear that he is protecting our personal data on facebook and that is more important to him than money is. with the exit of alex stamos yesterday, the chief information security officer, estated yesterday on twitter that he thinks that the company is putting money before users. especially when it comes to privacy. and that is why he says that he was going to depart. he will be staying on until august to kind of have a
9:43 am
transition there. but both zuckerberg and cheryl sandberg, the coo of facebook, have yet to make a public statement. everybody has been waiting for him to say something. facebook was hauled before a parliamentary committee in the u.k. in february to talk about possible russian meddling in the whole brexit thing with facebook's influence. and they didn't even send a senior executive. now the parliament investigation committee is basically saying we want zuck to show up and tell us what is going on. attorney generals all over the united states, many senators, including adam schiff, have been asking to get zuck before congress to discuss privacy policies. the ftc is looking into this. this is a big thing for facebook right now. >> some people say that facebook was complicit in helping, you know, the
9:44 am
republicans perhaps steal the election. other people say they were just negligent and not safeguarding how their information is used. do you get a feeling what most people think about this? >> well, you know, this all -- this all kind of stemmed -- this specific thing with cambridge analytica stemmed from a survey that a cambridge university scholar put up online. it was a person test. about 270,000 people participated in this personality test. what nobody really knew was this was also going out and scraping friends and family, anyone who was connected to the test, it was scraping their data as well. this was a breach of up to 50 million users. at the time in 2014, this was totally cool. there was nothing wrong with this. the problem came when that scholar then shared that data with a private organization, cambridge analytica which was founded by steve bannon and
9:45 am
robert mercer. they allegedly used that data to help influence the election. now cambridge analytica says we deleted the data. but we are taking their word for it at this point. we are waiting to see if the government steps in and gets a subpoena to see if that happened or if facebook sues them to get more information on that. when it comes to facebook, it is not just what we participate in. every time that we download an app, there is a little thing that says this is all much the information that it will collect from us. most of us ignore that. oftentimes it is giving them access to our friends list. once they get access to our friends list or they can see where we go when we're online, it is not hard to figure out where the political leanings are on based on the pages we visit and things like that. >> ryan, let's take you down to the user level. a lot of people telling me, i can't give up facebook. it is how i keep in touch with my family. for the user who is going to stay on facebook, what's the
9:46 am
smartest way to use it without giving up all of your information? >> yeah. so first thing that you want to do is audit all of the apps that you have attached to facebook. any games that you aren't using anymore or any little tests or quizzes that you participated in. it is all in the apps section of the facebook setting. you can also go down into your facebook setting and tighten up your security. make sure it that your profile is private. make sure that you're not sharing information or leaking it out. and then there's also a section in the settings area where you can see what facebook knows about you. this isn't by far a complete list because facebook not only tracks your usage while you're on the site but it also tracks your usage while you're just cruising around the internet. if you have logged into your facebook account on your browser at any time, it will track you whether or not you want to or not, whether you have gone to google or whether you're going to political websites or whether you're just looking at home shopping network stuff. >> ryan with nerds on call.

9:48 am
find it educational because it is cheap educational tools. but it is creamy r.r. creepy that they're reaching every -- but it is creepy because they are watching my every move. >> it creeps me out. for me personally, i like -- i hardly ever go on facebook. i do have an account. so like i do have likes and dislikes up. there they're not tailored or personal to how i am. for me i can see how i wouldn't shut down my account just because i don't have that much on it. but i understand how other people would be. but it makes me upset that -- >> yeah. we talked about it. if you're out buying something in particular, a rubber chicken on amazon, you have rubber chicken advertisements on your facebook. >> yeah. >> reporter: does that bug you? >> yeah. i don't see it as much on facebook as i do an instagram. >> reporter: know who owns instagram. >> probably facebook.
