communities. we went to columbine, we seen how it it impacted our school communities. we are not trying to take away anybody's guns. some think that is what we are trying to do, it's really common sense background checks, the loopholes at the gun shows, assault weapons, high capacity magazines, those are the things that we are trying to tighten up a little bit. >> reporter: thank you so much for your time, we will check in with you to get an update how things are progressing this morning and we'll get a more comprehensive list of speakers and what we can expect in oakland. you heard a lot of events starting to get under way here in oakland. they are doing the preparations right now but expecting large crowds here in oak land, a march today as well as the possibility that people could move over and join the rally and march in san francisco as well. so, certainly those who are here who are helping organize

people to pull up pennsylvania avenue, from the capital down towards the white house with people from young students to children, to older people. we have been walking through the crowds looking at some of the sign that we have seen. we have been just seeing -- you know who is out here, it's on event for ages across the entire board. really what they say they are out here protesting or marching in favor of, they are trying to cut down on gun violence in america, they are in favor of more gun control legislation which they hope this rally will get the attention of the lawmakers, and of course as you see, where you are we are expecting more than 800 sister rallies across the country. and across the world all under this march for life beener, claude even, frank. >> lauren you are walking around the crowd seeing people there and people of all ages, are you seeing a lot of security. is there a tone that gives you an idea when you talk about
different kind of performers and people speaking, what kind of tone this rally is taking now? >> reporter: yeah, we have been able to see tons of police officers, we can -- we've been trying to get in touch with the officials here on the ground. they would not give us official numbers how many officers are out here. from what we have seen they are every few feet. they have officers along this entire route making sure that this stays calm. it stays protected because of course there are a number of children here and students and it is a charged subject. the organizers of this rally say this is not meant to be a political event. it is supposed to be peaceful because they say this is a bipartisan issue which that they think everyone can agree on which is keeping kids safe in school. and of course cutting down on gun violence. let me get out of the way so you can see the crowd here already still as i mentioned, this is still two hours before the event is actually supposed to kickoff.
tons of people here. the organizers expecting up to 500,000 people to flood into this area to be able to hear the speakers from those students, to other activists who work to reduce gun violence. and of course see a number of big names, celebrity acts. we are seeing just folk from all over the country of course out from california, they have come all the way to the east coast to washington d.c., all to be part of this march today. >> and lauren, how about counter protesters, i would imagine there might be a few of those and where is the president today? >> reporter: well, the president is in florida. he is at his estate in mar-a- lago. the latest reports that we've seen from our pool down there, he is heading to his golf club. he is not here. there are the march for our lives in palm beach. so there is possibility the president will see that there. but he will not see the one here at least in person.
as for counter protests, we did hear the nra spokeswoman was planning to have about a thousand folks come out with a march for our guns, which they were planning to hold in front of the trump tower. however that number is significantly less than this rally. so, you know, it will be interesting to see if there is any sort of confrontation. but at this point it remains peaceful. >> lauren blanchard, thanks for the live report. 7:12 on the block, partners with organizers of today's event to end gun violence. >> san francisco based company has committed $1.5 million for marchs headed to any of the nationwide demonstrations, rallies scheduled, washington d.c. and 50 other major u.s. cities including more than a dozen in and around the bay area. marchers looking to take advantage of the free ride offer must rsvp ahead of the
scheduled demonstration. police say there has been a spike in juveniles committing crimes. >> details on the latest incident that ended with a crash on a freeway and what police say could be behind that problem. president trump renewing his ban on transgender troops but under restriction, reaction from california lawmakers over this change. there's only one word for the all new

throughout the united states, especially in washington d.c. >> we've been sharing picture from washington d.c., event gets under way in a couple hours. we checked were lauren blanchard, she talked about security that is tight there. things are relatively calm. this was a student lead movement and so as you might expect at rallies across the country including in dc, we are showing a loft of students and young people joining this message. we'll continue to check in all of those live pictures throughout the morning. >> weather wise, obviously a big march in oakland, one san francisco and one in san jose. fairly dry today. >> yes. >> scattered shower. >> things are slowing down. as we move forward we will have the possibility of a few scattered showers. for the marchs we are in good shape this morning. we are mainly dry. we do have a mix of sun and clouds, isn't that a beautiful start to the day. it is chilly. not quite as cold as yesterday

and when those levels get down to 2500 feet that means for us in the overnight hours, if it comes together with the very cold temperatures and precip, of course, we may see a little bit of a dusting on our local hills come tomorrow morning. storm tracker 2 where the center of the storm still off the coast there of oregon and we continue to see just bands of rain move through. one moved through in the overnight hours. you may notice your road is still wet. outside our doors a few sprinkles coming ashore between half moon bay and closer to santa cruz. and then into the sierra the snow continues to fall here. i pointed this out. pines 4000 feet on the west edge down to 3500 feet but still falling as we get into tonight. here is a look at the temperatures right now, outside 51 degrees in san francisco. 40 in santa rosa for the inner east bay. 45 in walnut creek. south bay 47 san jose. widespread 50s, 55 san

deactivate electric cars batteries. it took hours to safely remove that battery pack. >> we are used to regular vehicles, now that we have the batteries in the vehicles, we are learning as we go because obviously it is not going to be the only crash. >> firefighters and chp officers waited several hours for tesla engineers to arrive on scene to make sure their car was safe. the tesla driver died at the hospital. growing concern the bay area sky high housing could affect tech industries. launch add 24,000 residents, the medium price in san francisco is a million dollars and a half dollars for a home. job analysts say local companies could have difficulty recruiting candidates, because candidates might be turned or
scared of lack of affordable housing. state university along with current and former school employees are peopling the housing crunch. chronical reports that retired san francisco state staff are being evicted from the university's employee housing. school needs the space for students apparently there are 3000 students on the campus housing wait list every year. san francisco state says tenants must have an active affiliation with the university to stay rents. faculty and staff have gone up. happening today, great american santa clara opens the new season, celebrating the 25th 25th anniversary of the flight deck roller coaster this weekend, planning to introduce a steel roller coaster called rail blazer this spring. an opening ceremony at 95:00 right before that park officially opens at 10:00. local wineries could be affected by the trump's tariffs

live out in washington d.c. they are expecting over a half a million people to descend on the nation's capital all to mention antigun violence and what has transpired in florida last month. good morning everyone i'm frank mallicoat. i'm claudine wong. there are rally from coast to coast for the march for our lives crowds gathering at the main demonstration which gets under way in dc in a couple of hours. half a million people expected to be there. 800 sister marchs planned across the country including here in the bay area. >> protesters are demanding an end to gun violence, lauren blanchard at the national mall. let's talk about the president because we know he is down in florida right now. are we expecting any kind of response from him today or late they are evening on what is transpiring all over the country? >> reporter: right. so only indication from the white house is that the president doesn't have anything on his schedule today. we do know according to the
press pool he has headed over to his golf course, we are not sure if that is to play golf. there are other rallies going on around the country. more than 800 sister rallies to the one that is happening behind me all over the country, all over the world. of course this is something the white house is going to be aware, not only because of the massive amounts of people but also this rally, where it's situated in dc running from the capital to the white house which goes by the president, the trump international hotel. so you have to imagine the organizers of this event had a little bit of -- you know, perhaps a little bit in the planning to put that going past that hotel. we've also claude even and frank, we've heard there are possibly other counter protesters to this event, those who are in favor of, you know, keeping gun regulations out. making sure that folks are able to get guns if they want them. not restricting a lot of that
access, like some of the regulations that the folks here at the march for our lives are calling for. so have you to imagine the white house will at some point react to this, or whether that's a tweet or a statement, but at this point we have no indication that that is coming. so lauren, we know this is a student lead movement coming out of what happened in parkland, florida. demi lovato, miley cyrus. talk about the makeup of this crowd. who really is gathering, who we are expecting? >> reporter: right. so this event is put together by students originally. of course had has big name backers behind t as we've been in the crowd, what we've noticed let me show you what we are seeing. we are seeing young and old, although this is an event primarily for students for gun safety, for keeping them out of our schools. we are seeing folks not only from people in strollers, these
little tiny children, but we are also seeing people who i imagine are grandparents. they are out here with their home made signs a lot of different, you know, folks from all over the country. i was just talking with a girl from north carolina. we have seen people from california, all from each coast and of course all through the middle of the country. everyone, a little bit of everyone is represented here today. i saw one woman out just a little bit ago, an older woman, she had a sign that it had her name is grammy. you have to imagine there are a ton of different folks, different makeups here. young, old, all because as the organizers of this event say this is not supposed to be a political event. this is supposed to be a bipartisan event. something that they think any one and everyone should be behind which is reducing gun violence and keeping our kids
in school safe. >> well, trying to get their voices heard. half a million people supposed to attend today's rally in washington. lauren blanchard, we'll check in a half-hour, thanks for that report. back here in the bay area there are numerous rallies planned throughout the day here. >> one of the earliest event is scheduled for 90 minute from now. and we've got christien kafton live at the oakland march near city hall, christien. >> reporter: we are here at the plaza and we actually have a shot from the top of our truck. can you see preparations that are already under way to prepare the plaza for the crowds expected out here today. the march for life rally expected to draw hundreds here to oakland and olive blair joining us now, high school sophomore you said at skyline high school helping to organize this rally and really that is one of the things that has been one of the hallmarks of this movement really is that this
has been a student generated movement. >> yeah, for sure. we're the students are the one that have experienced the gun violence. so, whether you personally experienced it or been a victim of it or not, it's something that we feel passionate about because it could happen to anyone and anywhere. >> reporter: if you could explain to me how the events in parkland or high schools across the country have resonated with high school students. really like i said, high school students are finding their voice and this movement is being pushed by those students who are finding their voice. tell me how the events across the country and incidents really resonate here in oakland and resonate as a student yourself. >> we've seen a lot of violence that's happened in oakland since as long as i have been alive and before, so i think now that it's coming to national light through these teenager's voices that is really important.
because no matter what i love my classmates, and i'm not okay if this would happen to anyone. >> reporter: well, one of the things maybe this is an outsider's perspective, people talk about how young people are so plugged into social media. there is a way to follow the events. are students aware of the events under way in parkland and is that one of the reasons this has been able to spread organically across the country? >> i think social media is a super powerful tool because it allows to you connect nationally and globally. so these parkland students have been able to voice their opinions and their -- the changes that they want to see and it's been heard throughout the nation. and other students are voicing their own opinions and their changes that they want to see. so we are really coming together and we are able to kind of unify. >> reporter: the rally is set to start at 10:00 this morning. what can we expect out here and
what is your message, what do you want to see changed as a result of the rally here, in dc and across the country? >> we are going to have a lot of amazing speakers, some beautiful poetry and beautiful arts. we want to see the community show up and unify. and i hope to get some common sense gun control out of this rally and march. that's one of our biggest things. >> reporter: okay. olive, thank you so much for joining us. thank you for taking the time to talk with me. you get a sense there, olive, high school sophomore, really taking one of the leadership roles in all of this, helping to organize, making sure that the word gets out and literally putting boots on the ground to set up tables and all of that kind of stuff. hallmark of what we've seen not here in oakland, bay area, but across the country. students are taking one of the leadership positions, one of
the forefront positions in this march for life. >> yeah, no doubt they are passionate. we had those marchs and rally lows a couple weeks ago at some of the high schools all in response what happened in parkland, florida. i think the kids want to have their voices heard. thank you very much, christien kafton live for us in oakland recapping the oakland march for our lives 10:00 kicks off until noon. variety of speakers and musical acts. a.this of those people will jump on bart and join the march in san francisco. that san francisco march is expected to maybe have the biggest crowds in the bay area for the oakland rally is going to merge with the demonstrators at civic center plaza starting at 1:00 this afternoon. speaker also address that crowd before. early, early afternoon. expect major street closures. >> the largest expected demonstration will happen in san jose, that will begin at
11:00 this morning. a rally planned at the steps of city hall in the city. at 11:30 march over to the arena green. 3000 people rsvped for march for our lives event in san jose. >> we posted a long list of marchs happening in cities across the bay area. we are getting tweets going also our city. we have that list on ktvu.com. let's get you over to weather now, a lot of people are going to be out and about today, and we are starting to kind of bring in the sunshine into the forecast. >> yes. today not a bad day, we will leave in the possibility of a few scattered showers, passing over 0 the bay area from time to time. so you will need the jacket. a live look across the east bay, you have a little bit of blue sky mixed in with the cloud cover. and for the most part we are mainly dry giving you look here across the open estuary row. san francisco checking in at
47. a lot of us 47. oakland, livermore and san jose. santa rosa trailing at 44 degrees. so still cool out there but not quite as cold. storm tracker 2 where we are fairly quiet. we have a little bit of rain developing right there as you approach areas of the santa cruz mountains, closer i saw right in here a few sprinkles over the san francisco airport this morning. and then as we shift to the sibling era, this -- sierra this continues to fall. so with that said there are advisories in place, winter weather advisory for the lake tahoe area. and winter storm warning for the west slope. traveling 50, 90, all of the highways up toward lake tahoe, will you find the impact
amounts of snow higher peaks by the end of the weekend. giving you a look at futurecast model. a mix of sun and route clouds. stop it at your lunch hour, mainly dry, higher elevations, maybe down into the south bay, picking up on a few sprinkles, with this type of pattern it's impossible to know exactly where the scattered showers are going to fall. we'll take this with a grain of salt. sunset where it looks like another wave will be moving through about the 7:00 hour. as we get into the late night overnight hours. scattered shower or two moving through the bay area. sunday we will begin to dry out. here is a look at the afternoon highs expected. widespread 50s in the forecast, second part of the afternoon looking at 55 in san francisco, south bay. 57 in san jose. extended forecast showing you temperatures are going to warm up as we get into the week ahead. i will detail this for you coming up in a little bit. >> thank you, rosemary.
7:91, is a san jose police say the number of teenagers committing violent crimes in the city has gone up. the latest incident happened after 2:00 yesterday morning, sixteens between the age of 14 and 17 years old were arrested on suspicion of carjacking someone and then leading officers on a chase from san jose to livermore. the chase ended with a crash and teens were hard. at least one of them had a gun. shorts say there have been several several similar incidents in just recent weeks. >> they were using social media to organize which it took law enforcement a little bit of time to adjust to that, figuring out how they were organizing and we were able to combat it. >> two weeksing a five teenagers were arrested in connection with a carjacking back in january, police say is they arrested 12 members of the teen robbery crew. and last november 11 teens were accused of robbing, burglary,
carjacking 15 people in one weekend, one of the get away drivers was only 11 years of age. investigators are are trying to figure out how an iowa family of four in mexico died. more than a week ago. the family had not been heard from, so family members were concerned and they missed their return flight. yesterday the bodies of kevin and amy sharp and two young children were found inside their vacation condominium. autopsy is being performed to determine causes of death. wine county could be cut in the middle of a trade war as much as 97% of wines exported from the united states come from california. almost 60% of sales for owe puss one winery in napa value exports go to asia. the tariffs increase the price of wine which benefits wine
producing country not subject to the tariffs. >> at the every day wine price or mid tier prices, price differences can be very significant in terms of increase of 5% or 10% negatively impacting demand in the marketplace. >> now if china targets the u.s. wines it will affect the entire supply chain such as napa. it produces real cork stoppers. the company has felt the sting of tariffs, construction costs went up reflecting a higher prices for foreign steel. protests continued into the night at the state's capital. >> the busy evening as hundreds taking to the streets after the deadly shooting of an unarmed man by sacramento police. and testify curry came back to the -- stepm curry came back

positive change. for common sense gun laws and most importantly ensuring that all children feel safe in their schools. and this is why i march. >> and there are marchs being held as we said not only across the country, not only in parkland and dc and boston and new york, but also several rallies in the bay area. we are watching all of them for you, we'll have a series of live reports coming up and we'll keep you updated on the progress of those events. >> 800 marchs across the country. the big one in the bay area. first, let's get you out of the house on a weekend morning because we finally have some sunshine raining down on us, right? >> we are going to be drying out, a few sprinkles coming our way. we get into a drier pattern and a warmer pattern eventually. outside our doors this morning a chilly start. we'll take a look at the temperatures in just a moment. we have partly sunny, mostly cloudy skies to start your morning. and temperatures in the mid to

the united states, where 17 were gunned down a month ago. let's listen in. >> my resilience brave beautiful home. what happened on february 14, 2018 shattered my heart into countless pieces. but i vow to take each and every one of those pieces and to do good, to continue to fight the good fight with you all, to continue to use my voice to march and ensure that changes are made. i have never been more proud to be from parkland, florida, and i have never been more proud to be an eagle. [ cheering ] we have been listen to students all morning long get up on that podium and speak, at this rally and march at pine trails park, the same park where after the valentine's day mass shooting at parkland, people gathered
with flowers and with prayer. and what came out of parkland is, as you are hearing, is that students came out and said, we want our voices to be heard, and today, we do have 800 or so rallies not only across the country, not only here in the bay area, but also internationally, we are hearing about march for life rally in paris and tokey and seoul and what has come out of them, we are going to turn this around, and take a stand. >> and try to make a difference in the world. >> of course, the biggest one will be in washington, d.c. a half a million people expected there, we want to welcome you back to mornings on 2, frank mallicoat, along with claudine wong, and let's get over and say hi to rose mary. >> okay. >> in just a minute. instead, we are going to go to rose mary, in a moment, we want to continue with the march for our lives rally with this live picture of washington, d.c. as you can see, there are people gathering there, this actually doesn't start for another hour or so, but they continue to gather, and we have seen them
all morning long, people of all ages in that area, voicing their concerns over current gun laws. >> as you can see, a lot of folks gathering, a number of performers will be taking part today, and advocates and activists there in washington, d.c., and the president is down in florida, and i'm sure he will be keeping a watchful eye on all of this. and right in the shadow of the capitol building right there, the march for our lives across the country, and of course, a lot is going on right here, in the bay area. as well. >> we are listening to students, we heard from one earlier today. let's listen to what another student had to say moments ago. >> i promise you that if we do not force real meaningful change in our society, these tragedies will continue to happen again and again and again. >> organizers of the parkland rally expect more than 20,000 people to attend the event there this morning. and there are rallies planned today across the bay area from the north bay to oakland and san francisco, and san jose.
>> that oakland march begins at 10:00 this morning, and stage is being set up as we speak. and let's check in in the area. christian, take it away. >> reporter: you just saw what was going on in washington, d.c., and here 3,000 miles away in oakland preparing for the same kind of action. let's take a look at the view of the plaza right now. you can see organizers getting the plaza ready for the hundreds of people that are expected out here today, to take part in the march for life rally. and march here in oakland. and ivan garcia joining us now, a freshman, you said, at i forgot which high school. >> headworth high school. >> i talked with all of the -- olive, the sophomore at skyline and what i said, this is a movement that is being propelled by young people. if you could tell me for a moment about how you feel what
your role is in helping to organize all of this and finding your voition. >> voice. >> yes, i think the biggest thing for me is to inspire other people and i'm already very active in the political world and i think it is very important to be able to engage other young people and i think that is the biggest thing we want to do. we want to uplift our voices and still really show these kids that we can create the change that we want to see in our world. >> and one of the questions that we have had for all as well, because social media is a way for you to really have contact with other students whom you have never met, in other parts of the country is, that one of the reasons why this resonates? >> i think so. i think that so many people think of this stereotype as teenagers as just the generation that is on their phones, and lazy and doesn't do anything. and i think that we really use that to our advantage. in terms of we are -- we get updates every single minute of the day as to what is going on
around the country. and i think part of this movement has really been propelled by social media because so many people have been part of social media and it has been uplifted by social media for sure. >> is there a sense that if the adults are not resolving this, that you guys are going to step in? that's what some of the parkland students have said, as they have said, we're not seeing meaningful act, we're not seeing the act that we want taken so if nobody else is going to do it, we will start doing it. >> i think that is happening all over the country. and i think that the people in power just are not doing enough. and they are not listening to our concerns, and our thoughts, and so i think that this change really is starting with us now. we are tired of hearing that it is not time for these types of conversations when we really are ready and we need that change now. >> okay. ivan garcia, thank you so much. thanks for joining us. i will let you get back to work. i know you have a lot of work here to do. and ivan, explaining exactly what we have heard repeatedly,
that a lot of students are saying, if we're not seeing meaningful action taken on the part of adult, we will take action. certainly a lot of students saying they are finding their voice and finding their power, right now, at this time in history. back to you. >> thanks, we will check in with you in a bit. that oakland march for our lives goes from 10:00 to noon, and there will be a variety of speakers as you heard, musical acts and a lot of those rallies attendees are expected to hop on bart to start san francisco's march. that is the biggest rally today. that is where the oakland rally will merge with demonstrators at serving center plaza. that -- civic center plaza. that kicks off at 1:00 this afternoon. speakers will embrace the crowd before they march down embarcadero plaza. expect major closures in the city for the rally today. there is a large demonstration planned for san jose. that starts at 11:00 this morning. on the steps of city hall. at 11:30, they will start to march. at least 3,000 people have
rsvp'd for that march event. >> we will post a long list of all of the marches, you can look for them in the web link section. one of the demonstrations is getting ready to start in dc. it is already getting crowded there. it is indeed. our reporter lauren blanchard is joining us where the rally is under way and i understand the white house has responded to what is transpiring across the country today. what do they have to say? >> good morning, claudine and frank. we still have 30 minutes away, and the deputy press secretary put out a statement on behalf of the white house about the march for our lives and we applaud the many courageous young americans exercising their first amendment rights today. and keeping children safe is a top priority of the president tand goes on to say laws or acts the president has supported or signed into law and it makes notes about how the president has followed through on his commitment to ban devices like bump stocks
that turn legal weps into illegal machine guns. that's what we're hearing from the white house today. the president is not in dc right now, where this large rally is taking place. he is down in florida, at his estate, where because as we mentioned there are 800 more of these rallies, there is a rally going on, down in palm beach, florida, so you have to imagine, the president is going to see this, and see how big it is. not only here in dc but across the country, and around the world. you have to imagine he will be paying attention to the message that they are talking about today. >> and lauren, i know that organizers say, look, this is not necessarily political. we want to be bipartisan. we want to reach out to everyone who disagreed that schools should be safer. i see a lot of signs in the background though, and certainly it is hard to imagine it won't get a little political at some point with people, you know, weighing in on how they feel washington or the it administration is responding. >> right, claudine, a very good point, because what we are seeing, a common theme on a lot
of these signs, is that these children, these students are going to be voters. whether it is later this year in the 2018 mid-terms or in 2020. and a lot of these signs are making notes that lawmakers, these people want to see more gun control restrictions, legislation happen, an end to gun violence in the country. if they don't start to see bills with that in mind, then they say they are going to vote these lawmakers out. one of them that i saw basically said we voted you in, and we can vote you out. we will take your seat if necessary. and that is something that i have seen on a number of signs from folks who are students, who might be about to be 18 or just turning 18, or from older folks who have, you know, probably voted in a number of elections, possibly even voted for some of the lawmakers who find themselves in the middle of this fire storm. their message is we want change and we want change now. >> lauren blanchard, it gets under way shortly.
half a million people expected in washington, d.c. thank you for that report. meanwhile, lyft is partnering with organizers of today's event to end gun violence and mass shootings at schools. >> the san francisco-based company has committed about $1.5 million to those heading to the nationwide demonstrations. rallies scheduled in washington, d.c. and 50 other major u.s. cities including more than a dozen here in the bay area. marchers are looking to take advantage of the free ride offer, they must rsvp ahead of the scheduled demonstration. for the first time in a couple of weeks, it might be a good day to be outside. >> yes. >> check in with rosemary and we finally got some sunshine. >> we have had quite a bit of rain. which is good news. because we need. it and we are still in a deficit. giving you a view outside the doors this morning. partly cloudy and partly sunny skies and nice rolling green hill, we will continue with the possibility of a few sprinkles for today. as well as part of tomorrow. it should not be a big deal, but can't rule out that
possibility. in fact, take a look at storm tracker 2. where you can see, picking up on a little bit of scattered showers activity over the santa cruz mountains, as well as right along the peninsula, stretching from areas near half moon bay, and then on over towards 280, maybe even the millbrae area and sfo, so a few sprinkles in the forecast, for your saturday, and if you're heading up to the sierra, the snow continues to fall here as well. and snow levels will be dropping, over the next 24 hours or so. all the way down to 3500 feet. at this hour. and perhaps down to 2500 feet in the overnight hours. and here is a look at the advisories in place. lake tahoe area has a winter weather advisory that goes until tomorrow morning and the west slope, meaning those driving up highway 50, i80 and all of the highways in between, you are going to be impacted by snow as well, with the winter storm warning in place, until 9:00 tomorrow morning, and some of those higher peaks likely to pick up one to two feet of snow by the end of the weekend. good news there. for us over the last 24 hours, we picked up a few hundredths
of an inch to a quarter inch and another quarter inch by sunday. cool mornings. cool afternoons. and that possibility of maybe a few sprinkles coming our way today, and tomorrow and begin to dry out and we begin to warm up. here is a look at the temperatures right now. 45 in walnut creek. and 40 degrees in santa rosa. so a bit of a cool start. but the temperatures are up over yesterday. and for the afternoon, we will go 57 in concord. and 58 in san jose. and 54 for santa rosa. more on the dry pattern coming our way and more on the warmup in a little bit. >> thanks, rose mary. police say there has been a spike in juveniles, committing crimes in the south bay. >> up next, details on the very latest incident that ended with a crash on a freeway, and what police say could be behind the problem. >> and the president is renewing a ban on transgender troops but under certain conditions. we will tell you about reaction from california lawmakers about this latest change.
welcome back, everyone. time now is 8:15. protesters marched late into the night again at sacramento over the deadly police shooting of an unarmed man. >> demonstrators chanted the name of 22-year-old stephan clark, he was shot to death on sunday, as police were searching for a man seen breaking car windows.
police say officers feared that clark may have a gun but it turned out to be a cell phone. thousands marching through downtown sacramento calling for change. >> white people, black people, latino people and asian people marching with us and they were honking their horns and standing outside their apartment complex on the roof waving at us and cheering us on. that felt good. because sometimes it seems like people too care and coming out here and doing something like this, it means something. >> there were some scattered run-ins between the protesters and the drivers but there is no word of anyone being arrested. president trump has issued an order with all transgender people from the military except under limited circumstances and the white house says troops with gender dis -- transgender troops serving openly has been released. and there was a change back in january once again.
several military lgbt groups denounced the decision. house minority leader and bay area representative nancy pelosi posted this to twitter to the president's decision. it reads no one with the strength and bravery to serve the u.s. military should be turned away because of who they are. this hateful ban is purpose built to humiliate our transgender members of the military who serve with honor and dignity. we take you live once again to parkland, florida, where an antigun violence rally is under way and across the nation and of course this is where it all started with a mass shooting in florida last month. let's listen in. >> all right, it appears that the speakers are getting ready to sing there, but you know, a
number of students and community members and family all gathered in parkland, not too far from the high school, as they unite against gun violence, all across the nation. >> this location is an area where they have gathered before. they did so right after the mass shooting there. a lot of the speakers that we heard from today say they want people to remember parkland, not as the place where this mass shooting happened, but the place that responded to this terrible event, and called for change and was a voice for change. so we will check in with them in just a bit. >> they have inspired students across the country obviously. let's get you outside once again, weather-wise, how are we doing? >> cool start. a cool afternoon. you may need the jacket. make it a waterproof one. >> yes. >> and worried about, it just in case. a few scattered showers that will remain in the forecast for your saturday. and we begin to dry out on sunday. and here is a look, a live look, into san francisco, where we have a mix of clouds out there, and a little bit of blue sky, so partly to mostly cloudy
for today and a few sprinkles out there as well. looking at the 24-hour rainfall amounts over the last several days, we have seen, three, four five inches but you know, it is beginning to wind down, and anywhere from .01 of an inch in san francisco to a quarter of an inch reported in concord the last 24 hours. you can see the circulation going on off the coast of oregon. it continues to bring us rounds and rounds of just light scattered shower activities. the sierra continues to pick up some snow, as we zoom in closer, we do remain with a little bit of light rain that looks like it is stretching from half moon bay, crossing the peninsula, over the santa cruz mountains as well. and along 280, and 101, and over towards sfo, we have some light rain reported, and here is a look at the sierra, where it is continuing to fall. pines about, 4,000 feet. it is on the west edge down to 3500 feet. and drop all the way down to 2500 feet by tomorrow morning. and here is a look at the future cast model on this. if you're traveling to the sierra, be prepared for the winter travel, even advisories
in place. until tomorrow morning. and for us it will be a mainly dry day. but we can't rule out the possibility of a few sprinkles. there is your lunch hour, here is a look at sunset. as you can see, the waves just continue to move through with light scattered shower activity and with the evening plans, it was saturday after all and be prepared with a few sprinkles late into the evening as well. temperatures right now, 46 at half moon bay. and 48 in oakland. and low 40s in napa, as we get into the second part of the afternoon, mid to upper 50s, in areas from san francisco, through brentwood, and in the north bay, a cool day in santa rosa, 53 your afternoon high. and south bay locations, 57 morgan hill, as well as los gatos, and there is a look at your ex tended forecast, and temperatures slightly warmer tomorrow, and drying out tomorrow, and then dry and warming it up as we get into tuesday and wednesday, going to feel like spring. upper 60s, low 70s in the forecast. >> to quote most of us, it is about time. >> it is about time. >> a little sunshine. it goes a long way. >> thanks, rosemary. new this morning, a french mission officer who exchanged
places with a female hostage during a standoff with a terror suspect has died. >> the 44-year-old lieutenant colonel was shot by the gunman during yesterday's attack at a supermarket in southern france. french government announced that officer's death today. he was shot in the throat at the end of the four hour siege. and authorities ended up killing the gunman, storming the supermarket, and a 25-year- old from morocco with suspected ties to isis was killed. the french interior minister went on twitter to honor the officer, quote, france will never forget his heroism, his bravery, and his sacrifice. 8:21. the san francisco giants hoping for a major bounce-back, but the team has just suffered a major blow. >> it happened right there, madison bumgarner going down. his left hand, he has a broken pinky. we will tell you what is up next for their ace, coming up. >> and the bay area housing crunch is hitting staff members at local universities.
the investigation continues this morning into a deadly crash along highway 101. that crash happened yesterday in mountain view where a tesla suv went airborne after hitting the crash cushions, when it landed, two other cars hit it and that tesla burst into flames. that fire exposed live wires that fed into the car's battery
assembly and the crash is raising questions for first responders how to safely deactivate electric car batteries when there is an accident. it took hours for first responders and tesla engineers to safely remove the battery park. >> we are used to regular vehicles now that we have the batteries in the vehicles, we don't know what is in them and we're learning as we go because obviously it is not going to be the only crash. >> firefighters and chp officers waited for several hours to make sure the car was safe. the driver of the at the time died at the hop. the drivers of the other two cars were not hurt. and sky high housing prices could affect the high-tech industry. and census figures more people are moving out of the bay area than moving in from july 2016 to july 2017, a net loss of 24,000 residents. the median price home in san francisco by the way is a million and a half dollars. job analysts say local companies could have a very difficult time recruiting qualified applicants because
prospective candidates might be turned off, or scared off by the lack of affordable housing. students at san francisco state university along with current and former school employees are also feeling the housing crunch. the chronicle reports that retired san francisco state staff are being evicted out of the university employee housing. the school needs the space for the students. there are 3,000 students on the campus housing wait list each and every year. san francisco state says tenants must have an active affiliation with the university to stay. rents for faculty and staff, well they're going up as well. happening today, great america in santa clara opens for the new season, the park is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the flight deck rollercoaster this weekend. there are also plans to introduce a new steel rollercoaster called rail blazer this spring. there is going to be an opening ceremony at 9:50 this morning before the park officially opens at 10:00. all right, no one won last night's $421 million mega millions lottery, so there is
still hope for all of us. there has been more than 10 weeks since anybody has captured the big prize and it is going to go at least another couple of days until tuesday night's drawing. the winning numbers, if you missed them.: the next chance to strike it rich is tuesday night. the estimated jackpot nearly $460 million. all right, well, local wineries could be affected by president trump's tariff against china. >> coming up next we will tell you what the asian country plans to do that has california's wine country deeply concerned. >> half a million people expected to descend on washington today. for the march for our lives. a rally against gun violence. i'm lauren blanchard in washington. i will have the latest coming up.

back to mornings on 2, on this saturday, anti-gun violence rallies all over the country are scheduled. some are under way back east. this one of course in parkland, florida, where that mass shooting took place just last month. >> and we will continue to follow all of the rallies being held in florida, in dc, new york, and of course, here in the bay area. good morning. i'm claudine wong. >> hi, everyone. i'm frank mallicoat. the largest march for our lives rally is expected to take place at the nation's capitol. it is expected to begin in a half hour. >> we talked to several people, including from the nonprofit youth development center, who traveled to washington, d.c. for today's big demonstration on gun violence. reporter lauren blanchard joins us live at the national mall where tens of thousands of people are gathered this hour, and we have been chatting all morning long, and it looks like the crowd is getting just a
little bit bigger, lauren, right? >> yes, claudia, frank, we just went out just to see how many people were here. i cannot see the end of the crowd. that is how many people have shown up this morning. and the thing hasn't even begun. it is still about 30 minutes away. all up and down pennsylvania avenue. stretching from the capitol to the white house, and there are thousands and thousands of supporters, and students here all rallying against gun violence, and in support of gun legislation. we were expecting somewhere around 500,000 people, and that just for reference would rival the 2017 women's march. we also saw in washington, d.c. and so these organizers are expecting a massive turnout. it appears they are getting that. at least here in washington, d.c. because the crowds just keep flooding in. we are seeing, i mean thousands and thousands of signs, everyone teams to have brought something, in order to show their support, for the students
of parkland, for students who have been affected by gun violence. and also, make sure that the lawmakers can see and read their message, which really has been these students are going to be voters, and they are going to want to see their lawmakers do something, and if not, from what we're seeing on these signs, they are planning to vote them out if they can. >> and lauren, you know, i know there is going to be voter registration, a lot of talk about the young people, can you give us an idea of what to expect for this rally that is going to last for a few hours and looking at the program and seeing obviously the big name celebrities and the miley cyrus and the demi lovato and several speakers from parkland, saying they're coming from sandy hook, and tell me about how this day is kind of shaping up out there. >> well, this thing really was started by the survivors of the parkland shooting. that was back on valentine's day. and those were of course given a lot of money, a lot of support by the bigger names. oprah. the clooneys. that is where a lot of this money has come from.
from what we have heard about $4 million has been donated to put on this event and the purpose of it, it is not only to hear from the children, the teens, activists, who have been affected by gun violence, because they say they are the best ones to talk about it, right now, because they are the ones who are affected by it, and at this point, from what we are seeing, at least, with this movement right now, it is definitely gotten a lot more sustained attention, than many other shootings in the past and so we're expecting to hear their messages about how this has affected their lives, and what they want to see from their legislators going forward. and whether that is more gun legislation, controls, age limits, and of course, banning certain devices to make some of these weapons more high powered or semi automatic. so what we are expecting to hear from those, or how they are working as students to work as activists, and then of course, from the celebrities, themselves, on, you know, causes that are close to them, and of course, lend their
voice, not only through song, but just their name, their high profile, you know, lending to that to the cause, and making sure that they do continue to get media attention. >> certainly they are getting it today. >> let's talk about -- [ station audio trouble ] ] >> we have been seeing a lot of police officers. the ones that are actually dressed in uniform are in bright neon yellow. they are staged all throughout the crowd and up and down pennsylvania avenue. at least every few feet. there is an officer. there are also a lot of areas roped off to make sure people are corralled. and we know going into a lot of the -- >> they are on very high alert to make sure nothing goes wrong. that this does remain peaceful. and of course, protect the students. there are a lot of kids in this
audience, this crowd, so safety is the number one concern for those law enforcement here. and guys, this morning, when we were here, about 3:00 a.m., we saw just a whole line of police, excuse me, military vehicle, coming in, so they're blocking off roads, like we see at a lot of events that draw in large crowd, they're blocking off roads. there are military officials. there are police officers. they have not taken any shortcuts with safety today. >> okay. lauren blanchard, thank you so much for the live report. getting under way in another half hour and already very busy out there. >> i should say. and back here in the bay area now, there are numerous rallies planned throughout the day. >> one of the earliest events we will see is happening at washington elementary school. that is in san leandro. students and parents will start making signs a half hour from now and their event starts at 9:00 and march in the streets at 9:45. oakland is also planning for a very big demonstration this morning. right outside of st. louis --
of city hall where organizers were out there very early this morning. >> reporter: good morning. we are here at franco galo plaza. we have been showing you some of the work, the hard work that is going on right now to prepare for today's rally. we have a camera position to show you what is going on here at the plaza right now, which is you have a lot of young people organizing the space and getting ready for the hundreds of people that are expecting here later on today, to take part in this march for our lives rally here. and jessy, ryan, joining us now, to give us an idea on what we can expect out here today. and we are expecting really, we are expecting hundreds of people if not thousands of people to come out to make their voices heard. >> we are expecting 2,000 people. that's our hope. would he were estimating between 2 and five -- we were estimates between two and five. we have a great list of speakers. noah mack from the voice coming to join us.
a few politicians speaking. it is exciting. >> and it is interesting, you are at a high school yourself and we talked to -- you are out of high school yourself and we talked to high school students and this is a movement propelled forward by young people. >> yes, absolutely. i think the fact that it was motivated by students who have been through a school shooting was the most powerful thing. we all can relate. even i have been in situations where there has been a live shooter at our school and we had to shut it down. so most of the people that have been here, can relate to that on some level. and i think that the fact that it was student-led inspired a lot of students to get involved. >> i didn't know that you had been through it yourself, but the fact that speaks to how this is a problem that can happen literally anywhere. >> absolutely. yes, no one is immune. unfortunately. >> so tell me, then, what is your message? what do you want people, i mean rallies, marches are great, but what they have been saying in washington, what we have heard from the parkland students over and over again is, what they want to see is meaningful change. what do you want to see in terms of change? >> absolutely. we are standing with -- there is a very specific kind of
group of regulations that they want to see in place. which includes, i believe, banning a sale on assault weapons. banning a sale on high capacity magazines and closing the loopholes in our background check laws and that is something that some of which we have in california, in place. but we want to see it across the board. because where it has been affected, we have seen the numbers of people who are shot changed. and we really want to see that be putin place. we want to here in oakland, people affected by gun violence, whether it is a school shooting or not. have their voices heard as well. >> jessy, thank you so much for joining us this morning. and sharing some perspective on what is going on out here. you heard it once again, about how really this has been a movement that has been propelled forward by young people, that their ability to communicate, their ability to relate to what happened, not just in parkland, but you know, stories going back to columbine, back to other school shootings, i think that, you know, one. the things that they have all said is that that resonates
with them. and if they're not going to see action on the part of adults they are going to take action into their own hands and see to it that they make themselves as safe as possible. >> i wouldn't be surprised if some of these students run for office some day. they are so well spoken. >> absolutely. the young people, it is amazing seeing how well self-possessed they are. it is their time. their topic and they're driving the bus so to speak and this is their agenda and they want to make sure to be on message. >> thank you. a lot of activity happening out there today. let's recap. oakland once again the march for our lives starts at 10:00 to noon. at frank ogawa plaza where christian is. a variety of speaks. musical acts and a number at the rally will jump on bart and head to san francisco for another march. >> and san francisco is expected to draw large crowds, the largest of the day maybe in the bay area and civic center plaza, you essentially have two coming together. that is about one this
afternoon. and the speakers are planning to address the crowd and the marching begins from that area, civic center, to the embarcadero plaza at 2:30, so if you are anywhere around that area, you got to know there are major street closures in san francisco. and that march will affect travel through there. >> and in the south bay, the largest expected demonstration will happen in san jose, and that will begin at 11:00. the rally is being planned at the steps of city hall. and then around 11:30 the group marches over to arena green. at least 3,000 people have already rsv p'd on facebook for the live event in san jose. and more marches and rallies planned across the bay area, almost too many to list. we put a long list of the marchers, for your information, on our web site, at ktvu.com, and all you have to do is go to the web links section and you can get more information. after the first time in a couple of weeks, it is a good weekend to maybe get outside. and enjoy, right? >> yes. a little cool out there. but it is a good day for a
march. so we will have the possibility of a few sprinkles. in fact, we are seeing some over portions of the bay area for today. not a big deal. not a reason to cancel any plans. but maybe a rain hat, maybe an umbrella. just in case. giving you a view here, across the bay as we look to the west and the golden gate and you can see a little bit of blue sky mixed in, with that cloud cover there. and on to the radar, where we are watching, scattered showers over the santa cruz mountains and some along the peninsula and going in closer here, and we had some over half moon bay and now it looks like it is stretching over to the peninsula. so burlingame, san mateo, maybe approaching the san mateo bridge, up towards san bruno, maybe sfo there, a few light scattered showers as we shift into the south bay, maybe picking up into a little bit as well in san jose and campbell, and into the sierra, the snow continues to fall here, and levels right about 3500 feet and dropping down to 2500 feet. and you can see there, it is on the west edge of pines a and we have the advisories in place for the areas over lake tahoe, through tomorrow morning. a winter weather advisory for
the west slope and traveling up, a winter storm warning with levels dropping down to 500 feet. one to two feet. maybe three of new snow by the end of the week. tracking for several days. and when i come back, i will have the timing on what you can expect here at home, and when we will dry out and when we will warm up, more on this, coming up. >> thank you, rosemary. san jose police say a number of teenagers committing violent crimes in the city has gone up. the latest stint happened just after 2:00 yesterday morning. six teens between the ages of 14 and 17 years old, all arrested on suspicion of carjacking someone, and then leading officers on a chase that went from san jose, all the way to livermore. the chase ended when those teens crashed their car. and all were arrested. and police say at least one of them had a gun. authorities say there have been several similar incidents in recent weeks. >> they were using social media to organize, which it took law enforcement a little bit of time to adjust to that, and to figure out that that's how they
were organizing and then we were able to combat it. >> just two weeks ago, five teenagers were arrested in connection with the carjacking. in january, police say they arrested a dozen members of the teen robbery crew and last november, 11 teens all accused of robbing, burglarizing, carjacking 15 people over the weekend. police say in that case, one of the get-away drivers was only 11 years old. concerns that the u.s. may be headed for a trade war with china is impacting stock markets around the world. 9 stock closed in the red a-- the stocks closed in the red yesterday, ending the wall street worst week in two years, falling 425 points. and the nasdaq and s&p 500 have also seen big declines. on thursday, president trump announced plans to impose tariffs on up to $60 billion of chinese goods. that's separate from the tariffs on steel and aluminum that he announced earlier this month. china responded by threatening to impose $3 billion in tariffs on 128 american products. uc berkeley political clines
professor vinny agrawal says this could just be the beginning. >> the real question is whether china is going to retaliate in the amount of 50 or $60 billion, not $3 billion. >> the professor says the biggest u.s. export to china includes jetliners and soy beeps. soybeans. wine country could be caught in the trade wars. much of the wine exported from the united states comes from california. 60% of the sales from opus one winery in napa valley are exports. the vast majority go overseas to asia but tariffs increase the price of wine and it benefits wine producing countries not subject to the same tariffs. >> the every day wine price, or a mid tier price, the price differences can be very significant in terms of an increase of 5 to 10%, and really negatively impact demand in the marketplace. >> if china targets u.s. wines, it will affect the entire
supply chain. such as portocork. it produces real cork stoppers for much of the wine industry. the company has already felt the sting of tariffs. construction costs went up reflecting the higher price force foreign steel. and protests continued into the night at the state's capitol. >> details of a very busy evening as hundreds took to the streets after the deadly shooting of an unarmed man by sacramento police. ♪you've got a friend in me
we have one to two fires a day and when you respond together and you put your lives on the line, you do have to surround yourself with experts. and for us the expert in gas and electric is pg&e. we run about 2,500/2,800 fire calls a year and on almost every one of those calls pg&e is responding to that call as well. and so when we show up to a fire and pg&e shows up with us it makes a tremendous team during a moment of crisis. i rely on them, the firefighters in this department rely on them, and so we have to practice safety everyday. utilizing pg&e's talent and expertise in that area trains our firefighters on the gas or electric aspect of a fire and when we have an emergency situation we are going to be much more skilled and prepared to mitigate that emergency for all concerned. the things we do every single day
that puts ourselves in harm's way, and to have a partner that is so skilled at what they do is indispensable, and i couldn't ask for a better partner. well, look there. a pretty start to the day. a live look at the golden gate bridge. folks already on the go. it sur weekend and i'm tracking a few sprinkles in the forecast. and cool temperatures. i will have a look at what you can expect coming up. after endless ankle issues, steph curry returned to the lineup against the hawks. the knee, not so much. mcgee landed on this knee and he went down in a heap. here is steph happy to can back after missing six games with the bum ankle. and there is the perfect assist. a bouncer there. and steph had 29 in the third quarter. and then this happened. mcgee will trip on the
rebounding attempt. crash into steph.'s left leg and curry knows immediately something is not right. he left the game and did not return. it is a left knee strain. >> kind of a strange cruel twist of fate. he rehabs his ankle the last couple of weeks and gets that strong and then the knee goes. we will see what happens. let's keep our fingers crossed. >> so steph will have an mri today to get a better look at that knee. right now, as mentioned a left knee strain. he is out indefinitely. they have 10 regular season games remains, 17 days in the regular season and time to rest and rehab and hopefully be ready for round number one of the playoffs. no curry. no bumgarner, with the ace taking a libe drive off the left hand and broke his pinky finger. he could be out for months. opening day five short days away. let's look at the line drive
that took him out yesterday. right on the hand. this is a spring training game against the royals. just got grilled on the mound. the finger will need pins inserted for a good month. rehab coming. and the injury is on his throwing hand. last year, he had that dirt bike accident. and now, this. he says he is not worried. he will be back. >> it was tough. i mean, but, you know, i can handle. it thee guys can handle. it i think we will be fine. it is obviously not what i was expecting, out of my last start, but it is what happens and now i got to deal with it. >> now not what fans were expecting. and a's open thursday against the dodgers. they have to play 10 games against l.a. in the month of april. >> we could have used them. >> he probably would have pitched three or four of the games. he also playing most of the national league west in the month of april. last year they got off to a slow start and hopefully they
can stem the tide. >> a long season. heal up quickly. a good day for baseball. >> yes. >> feeling like spring. temperatures in the week, rising into the 60s and 70s. so that is what is to come. for your weekend, going to be cool out there. it was a chilly start. and temperatures are slowly rebounding under partly sunny, mostly cloudy sky, and there is a live look over san francisco, and you can see the tower there on the left. and as we look towards the west, we have a few scattered supported along the coast. and along the peninsula, and now, moving inside the bay. there is a view there. mainly dry start. but it may have a little bit hitting the ground in and around here. it looks like half moon bay, and stretches over across towards the peninsula, and san mateo, burlingame, crossing the san mateo bridge and light sprinkles reported there. and shifting into the south bay, a little bit here as well. san jose, back over towards campbell, and on the other side, we have allen rock there. into the sierra, where the snow continues to fall. are you thinking about heading up? there is an advisory for winter
travel. 50 as well as 80. right now, that snow level is about 3500 feet. and to drop all the way down to 2500 feet by tomorrow morning. which means here locally, we could get a dusting of snow but not likely to see a whole lot of rain. i will show that you in a moment. but for your weekend, chilly temperatures in the morning. followed by cool afternoon highs. and we saw anywhere from a few hundredths of an inch to a quarter of an inch in the last hours. and a quarter of inch by saturday afternoon or so. and again, travel together sierra, one to two feet of new snow expected by week's end. so we have been tracking this rainfall, and sierra snow, for the last several days. and we have to see how it all shakes out. i know we have received a few inches. three, four, even five inches for sox wetter spots. a look at the -- for some of the wetter spots. and a look at the snow report, the lifts are running and at at base. north star, 130 inches. and 152 sierra at tahoe. and continuing to pile up. and here is a look at what is going on here at home. the future cast model am place.

rally and one of the things we have been talking about, what are you hoping to get out of all of this. we have been talking about how great rallies are and to hear your voice and all of that, but there is also a political message about this, that you want. >> yes, well, the bottom line is we want change. we want action. we don't want people to forget why we are here. and a lot of times, people get excited, they get passionate. and then it dies off. little by little. and nothing happens. nothing changes. and this continues to happen over and over. and we want people to see that we are here. we are staying. we are awake to this. and we are not going to let this just die down. >> and you said that you work with young people. and they really seem to be uniquely engaged. i mean there is this perception, maybe a misperception some would say that young people are not really socially aware or they're not motivated but that's not what you're seeing. no, i work ages 6 to 18 and the 6-year-olds are talking about what is going on and they freak
out whenever they hear something on the news. and it amazing me because to be completely honest, i don't remember being that aware when i was that young and it inspires me to be more awake myself. because these kids are doing something. they are standing up. they are telling me what they want. and they are not afraid to do it. they have no fear. >> they have no fear. and it is interesting, because they do seem to take it personally. they do seem to have, when these events happen, although these events happened, the parkland shooting happened in florida, kids here in oakland seem to be very engaged and emotionally invested in what happened there. it is partially somewhat because they can see it happening anywhere? >> yes, especially when they see it all the time. it is a huge issue. all over. but in oakland, they see it every day. and unfortunately, it doesn't get seen by the public very often. but it happens. and so they are very connected
with this issue. >> marina, thank you so much for joining us. i know you got to get back to work. i know there is a lot more. you guys have one hour. so crunch time. they have a lot of speakers. in fact some of the speakers already starting to show up here this morning. they have political representatives, pots, there is really -- poets, there is really a wide range of voices here and what sim press serve to see that so many -- what is impressive to see is that so many young people are deeply engaged and want their voices heard. >> and they will be voters very, very soon. >> thank you very much. and that oakland march for our lives demonstration is happening at the frank ogawa plaza. 10:00 a.m. to noon. speakers as well as musical acts. and then they will head over to bart, and then go to san francisco after that oakland rally. >> and that of course will be the biggest rally, here in the bay area today. that's where that oakland rally will merge eventually with the demonstrators at civic center
plaza. and starting at 1:00 this afternoon. and the speakers will address the crowd there in front of city hall before marching down market trees to the embarcadero plaza around 2:30. and if you're heading to the city, expect major delays in and around those streets, and of course, bart will be very busy as well. >> the south bay also has a demonstration planned in san jose. it starts at 11:00 this morning on the steps of city hall. at 11:30, organizers say the group will march to arena green. hard to predict how many people are showing up but we know 3,000 people have rsvp'd on facebook for that event. >> ktvu with come. we have you covered. posting the marches and the bay area. if you need more informing, you can check it out -- more information, you can check it out on the web site. the san francisco company lyft has contributed $1.5 million for marchers heading to
the nationwide demonstrations rallied scheduled as mentioned in washington washington, and 50 other major u.s. city, some 800 strong, across our country, and that is including more than a dozen locally here in the bay area. and marchers looking to take advantage of the free ride offer. must rsvp ahead of the scheduled demonstrations. well, protesters marched late into the night again in sacramento. over the deadly police shooting of an unarmed man. >> demonstrators chanting the name of 22-year-old stephan clark, he was shot to death on sunday, as police were searching for a man seen breaking car windows. police say officers feared that clark might have had a gun. but it turned out it was a cell phone. thousands marched through downtown sacramento. calling for change. >> there is white people, black people, latino people, asian people, marching with us, and they were honking their horns and they were standing outside their apartment complex, and
the roof, waving at us and cheering us on. that felt good. because sometimes it seems like people don't care. and coming out here and doing something like this, we need it. >> there were some scattered run-ins between the protesters and drivers, but no word of anyone being arrested last night. police say there has been a spike in juveniles committing crimes in the south bay. >> coming up, details on the very latest incident that ended with a crash on a freeway and what police say could be behind this problem. >> and president trump is renewing a ban on transgender troops. but under certain conditions. the reaction from california lawmakers over this latest change.

you wet, if you're stuck under one. and giving you a view here at the temperature, 50 degrees san francisco, and 47 in walnut creek. and 49 for san jose. and afternoon highs for today, mid-50s san rafael. as well as vallejo and around the bay, we have 56 in oakland and 55 in san francisco, and upper 50s for the inner east bay and upper 50s for the south bay. and 57 in san jose. and 58 in gilroy. and here is a look at your extended forecast. we are drying it out tomorrow. maybe just a few scattered showers to start the day. and temperatures slightly warmer, on sunday. and then we get into some even better weather, at least if you like it sunny and 70 degrees. because that's what is coming our way tubes into wednesday. >> i am -- our way tuesday into wednesday. >> is that a trend. >> and we look dry for the next several days once we get past this little blip. >> we will take a break. >> been a while. the bay area housing crunch is impacting the staff at local universities. >> up next, why one woman who taught for two dozen years says she is now being asked to move out. we will tell you why.
our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. >> you are listening to some of the students at a parkland rally, who of course are the survivors of that mass shooting from last month, and the genesis of what is transpiring today. a number of rallies throughout the country. the biggest of which is in washington, d.c. that is under way, this is under way, in parkland, and at 10:00 this morning, another in oakland, and 1:00 this afternoon, in san francisco, and we will have a live report coming up from washington, d.c., and take you over to oakland in just a couple of minutes. an investigation continues this morning into a deadly crash along highway 101. that crash happened yesterday morning, in mountain view, when a tesla suv went airborne after hitting crash cushions. when it landed, two other cars hit it and that's when the tesla burst into flames. the fire exposed live wires feeding into the car's
batteries assembly and it raises questions how first responders can safely deactivate car batteries when there is an accident. it took hours for the first responders and tesla engineers to safely remove the battery park. >> we are used to the regular vehicles and now that we have the batteries in the vehicles, we zoo know what is in them, so we are learning as we go. -- we don't flow what is in them, so we're learning as we go. because obviously it is not going to be the only crash. >> firefighters and chp officers had to wait ours for the tesla engineers to get 0 -- wait hours for the tesla engineers to get on the scene to make sure things are taken care of. there is a concern that the sky high bay area housing prices could affect the tech industry. from july of 2016 to july of 2017, a net loss of 24,000 residents. the median price of a home in san francisco is a million and a half dollars. job analysts say local companies could have difficulty recruiting qualified applicants
because prospective candidates might be turned off by the high prices, or scared off by the lack of affordable housing. mean while, students at san francisco state university, along with some of the current and former school employees, also feeling that crunch. the chronicle reports that retired san francisco state staff are being evicted out of their university employee housing. the school needs that space now, for its students. there are 3,000 students on the campus housing wait list each year. and san francisco state says tenants must have an active affiliation with the university, to stay in that housing. rents for faculty and staff have also gone up. 9:25. happening today, great america in santa clara opens for the new season. the park is going to be celebrating the 25th anniversary of the flight deck rollercoaster this weekend. and the park is also planning to introduce a new steel rollercoaster that is called rail blazer this spring. and there is going to be an

here, in oakland. if you'd have told me three years ago... that we'd be downloading in seconds, what used to take... minutes. that guests would compliment our wifi. that we could video conference... and do it like that. (snaps) if you'd have told me that i could afford... a gig-speed. a gig-speed network. it's like 20 times faster than what most people have. i'd of said... i'd of said you're dreaming. dreaming! definitely dreaming. then again, dreaming is how i got this far. now more businesses in more places can afford to dream gig. comcast, building america's largest gig-speed network.
once i heard it i was shocked. i just thought, i have to go get it! ♪ ♪ it's our tree! ♪ ♪ see how a personalized financial strategy and access to j.p. morgan investment expertise can help you. chase. make more of what's yours. welcome back to mornings on 2. you are taking a live look at the march for our lives rally that is being held in san leandro. things got under way, just about 9:00 this morning. and they gathered there to make signs, as you can see, some of them holding those signs now. at 9:45, in just about 15 minutes, they are planning to start their march. they are going to start and end
that at washington elementary school's field. you can see, a crowd beginning to really gather there. again, in about 15 minutes there. they are planning to head out to the streets. and in this march for our lives event. but there you go. you can see the small children there. as we have seen across the country. small children, students, all taking part in the rallies that we're seeing across the country. >> and of course, one of many rally, the biggest here in the bay area, and in san francisco, and a lot of folks joining together. welcome back, everyone. 9:30 your time on a saturday. i'm frank mallicoat. >> good morning. i'm claudine wong. >> there are more than 800 marches across the country calling for safer schools and an end to gun violence. >> here is a look at some of the demonstrations back east that be gain earlier this morning, and some demonstrations that are now under way and going strong, you can see houston and philly among others, and the rallies are born out of the valentine's day shooting, in parkland, florida, where 17 students and educators were killed.
organizers hope a million people will take part in rallies close to coast. the rally that is expected to draw the most people though is happening right now, the national mall, in washington, d.c., there, they were estimating half a million people, and the groups behind the event say it may have surpassed their predictions, though, and speakers have been taking the stage, we saw rihanna and common taking the stage earlier and performing. a lot of big names from hollywood out there. and mixed in among the performers are many, many students, stoneman douglas high school student, as well as they are there, they are in parkland, they have traveled around the country, and ariana singing there and all of them saying they have a message. >> this is because on february 14, a gunman came to our school, marjory stoneman douglas high school, and shot and killed 17 of our classmates and teachers. 17 of our friends.
17 members of our family. >> and those were the students speaking in florida. stoneman douglas high school students also in washington, where they will lead a march down pennsylvania avenue to the white house. they are calling for congress and president trump to adopt gun control legislation. this morning, the white house issued this comment. it said, we applaud the many courageous young americans exercising their first amendment rights today, keeping our children safe is a top priority of the president. back here in the bay area now, there are numerous rallies planned throughout the day. >> we have more at the oakland march, it begins in about a half hour from now and christian, the oakland march is part oakland, part san francisco, right? >> reporter: that's right, this is the one here in oakland. set to get under way at 10:00. but folks really already starting to show up. they said that they are going to start the music at 9:30 and certainly they have started the music. you can see that people now are
starting to show up for the rally here. it is going to be a large gathering, this re hoping to get as many as 2,000 people. the speakers include speakers from marjory stoneman douglas high school, the site of the parkland shooting, as well as poets, musician, and a range of politicians and warriors head coach may be here. and this is parents and students and supporters trying to make meaningful changes in what they call an epidemic of gun violence. >> my dress code is stricter than our gun laws. so these students finding their voices and all morning long, we talked to a lot of the young organizers behind this. some of them as young as 14, 15 years old who really say that this is their time. they feel that nobody else is going to do disco it. nobody can speak for them. they need to speak for themselves. and so that is one of the
reasons they are organizing today's rally. from a logistical standpoint, they are expecting a lot of people and they are advising people to take ride share or public transit to get here. there will be a transit. and this one running from 10:00 to noon and there is of course the rally in san francisco, expected to get under way this afternoon. they try to specifically organize those so that people could come here, to the oakland rally, and then also make it over to san francisco. to take part in a larger rally if that is something they are interested in. but again, the message from the young people here, you can see it possibly over my shoulder here, hashtag #enough. they say they have had enough gun violence and if the adults are not going to do it, they are going to take the reins themselves and do it for themselves. >> are you getting a good group of not only students but
families older folks, one more time. >> i'm having a hard time hearing you with the music out here. >> give us an idea who is there today. young, old? >> yes, a little bit of everything, frank. we showed you some of the young students over here, you can see over here as we pan over, there seem to be pre-teen, a lot of teenagers here, adults, grandparents, we know there are educators here as well. it really has drawn a mixed bag of people who share an opinion that they need to do something, and again, the message for the march for our lives is that something needs to be done in particular about the prevalence. guns in our society and the ability to have access to those guns, and the unfortunate circumstances where those guns do wind up in schools. they say something has to be done. >> can you talk about security? we have been peeking into the march and rally in dc, we know there is a very big police presence. they are not letting people bring inselfy sticks and stuff like that. are you seeing that kind of
response in oakland? >> we certainly had some police presence, some officers walk by, actually joseph, if we can swing around we can show that there are security guards who are here, who are keeping an eye on the crowd, at this point, and keep in mind, we are sort of backstage right now, so to speak, and joseph, we will have you turn around one more time and if you look, you will see, there are also security here, kind of on the front end here, orn the apron of the stage. so security-minded. but so far, certainly this does not cement to be the kind of -- does not seem to be the kind of crowd where anything should happen. it is a lot of young people. a lot of families here. to have their voice. >> a peaceful march, we know. >> thank you, live for nus oakland. that march will kick off at 10:00. we will finish around noontime. and frank ogawa plaza is the place to be. a variety of speakers and a musical act as well. and a number of people will jump on bart and head over to the big demonstration in san francisco. and the biggest rally today
is expected to be there, oakland's rally may merge with the demonstrators at civic center plaza, at 1:00 this afternoon. and speakers will address the crowd before marching to embarcadero plaza at 2:30, expect major street closures in san francisco for that rally. >> and south bay, don't forget. the largest gathering there will be in san jose, starting at 11:00 this morning. and the the rally planned on the steps of city hall in san jose, at 11:30, that group will march to the arena green. at least 3,000 people have already rsvp'd via facebook for the march of our lives event in san jose. at ktvu.com we have posted a long list of today's marches and look for them in the web link section of ktvu with come. we will head over to rosemary for a look at how the weather is shaping up. we might see a little bit of rain but we are headed toward a break. >> yes. it will be on and off for the entire day. and the future cast model hasn't been picking up much of a pattern. it is hard to know exactly
where it will fall and we received a facebook message from carolyn hayward who says it is coming down pretty good right now. partly cloudy to mostly sunny. and a wave moved through in the overnight hours and even if nothing is falling from the sky, a little bit of a wet pavement out there still at this hour. a look at storm tracker 2, where we continue to see a few lines of rine move into the bay area -- rain move into the bay area and santa cruz mountains, and light steady rain falling there, and a little bit closer, scott valley and it moves over to los gatos, you may have a few scattered showers there, and south bay, south bay in and out of light sprinkles and scattered showers over the last half hour to 45 minutes, and across the peninsula, stretching over to san mateo, we have some a little bit earlier and it looks like the dumbarton bridge getting a little wet there. shifting into the east bay, where again, hayward, seeing some pretty good rain at this moment and it looks like it is beginning to shift. areas near san ramon, pleasanton, livermore, if it is
not sprinkling outside your door, it will shortly. and a look at the sierra, where the snow continues to fall as well. the stake-away for today, and into the first part of tomorrow, a mix of sun and clouds, scattered showers, will continue, off and on, and we saw anywhere from a few hundredths of an inch to a quarter of an inch over the last 24 hours and over the next 24 hours, a few hundredths to another quarter of an inch before we're done. and we will be come. we started with 40s in morning and for the afternoon. we will go into the 50s. and snow levels continue, to accumulate, and one to two, maybe three feet of snow, for the higher peaks and there are advisories in place, if you're thinking of heading up, prepared for the winter travel. a look at the temperatures outside right now, we are slow to climb, 42 right now in sant rosa. and 49 in oakland. and holding steady, 50 degrees in san francisco. and for the afternoon, we will go mid-50s to upper 50s, areas like concord, and 54 in san rafael, and 54 expected for santa rosa. when i come back, a look at the extended forecast. not only going to dry out but
warm up. more on this coming up. well, a student at a high school in san lorenzo is facing charges for bringing a loaded gun on campus. the school is located off washington avenue and put on lockdown yesterday after someone reported there was a studenting studenting -- student with a weapon. a loaded gun was found in the student's backpack in the classroom. and then two other students were detained for questioning. the school was searched. no other weapons were found. and the lockdown was lifted in about an hour. san jose police say the number of teenagers committing a violent crimes in the city has gone up. the latest incident happened just after 2:00 yesterday morning. six teenager, between the ages of 14 and 17, all arrested on suspicion of carjacking someone, and then leading officers on a chase that went all the way from san jose to livermore. the chase ended when the teen crashed and all were arrested. police say at least one of them did have a handgun. authorities say there have been several similar incidents in recent weeks. >> they were using social media
to organize, which it took law enforcement a little bit of time to adjust to that, and to figure out that's how they were organizing and then we were able to combat it. >> two weeks ago, five teenagers were arrested, in connection with a carjacking, in january, police say they arrested a dozen members of a teen robbery crew, and last november, 11 teens all accused of robbing, burglarizing, carjacking, 15 people, in just a weekend. police say in that case, one of the get-away drivers was only 11 years old. wine country could be caught in the middle, if trade wars erupt. as much as 97% of wines exported from the united states come from california. almost 60% of the sales for opus1 winery in napa valley are exports. the vast majority of that wine goes to asia, where tariffs increase the price of wine which benefits other wine producing countries not subject to those tariffs. >> at the every day wine price, or mid tier prices, price
differences can be very significant in terms of an increase of 5 or 10%, and really negatively impact the demand in the marketplace. >> if china targets u.s. wines, it will affect the entire comply chain, such as the cork company in napa that produces real cork stoppers for much of the wine industry. the company has already felt the tariff, construction costs have gone up reflecting the higher prices of foreign steel. facebook shares finished the worst week with shares down 13% yesterday. and they are facing scrutiny for the handling of a personal data. a delete facebook campaign was started after it was revealed that was a breach. >> mark zuckerberg has been asked to capitol hill to answer questions about why the information fell into the wrong hands. a new lass passed by congress has prompted -- a new
law passed by congress has prompted craigslist to take down lists, it is fight online sex trafficking act, it adds tougher penalties for web sites that facilitate prostitution, or sex trafficking. and tech analysts say it is a good decision for craigslist to remove the personals because it could risk all of the other services being shut down. critics say the bill is overreaching. and that personal ads have their benefits. well, steph curry came back to the starting lineup after missing six games with a sprained right ankle. >> that ankle held up fine. but now he's got an issue with his knee. he is sidelined again. what happened last night. we will talk about it coming up.
we are looking at rallies across the country, one in oakland, another at 1:00 p.m. in san francisco and another in san jose, and across the bay area. many more rallies for the march for our lives movement. we continue to follow that for you all day long. how about some basketball after endless ankle issues, steph curry returned to the lineup last night against the hawks. the ankle was fine. the knee, not so much. mcgee landed on the knee as the star went down quickly. here is steph though happy to be back, missing six games with the bum ankle. looking great in the game. a perfect bouncer here. steph finished with 29. but come the third quarter, this is what happened. mcgee will trip on the
rebounding attempt. crashes into steph's left leg. curry knows immediately something is not quite right. he did leave the game. he did not return. here is the head coach on what they are calling a left knee strain. >> kind of a strange cruel twist of fate, you know, he rehabs his ankle, for the last couple of weeks, gets that strong, and then the knee goes. so we will see what happens. let's keep our fingers crossed. >> so steph will have an mri later today to get a better look at the knee. right now a left knee strain. out indefinitely. they still have time. 10 regular season games remaining. 17 games. three weeks to rest, rehab and hopefully be available for the first round of the playoffs. no curry. and no bumgarner either. the giants ace taking a line drive off his left hand and broke his pinky finger. he could be out a good two month with opening day just five short days away on thursday. here is the liner that did it.
right there. boom. madison yesterday. spring training game against the royals. he got drilled on the mound. the finger. it will have to have pins inserted for a good month. then he has to go through rehab. and that injury is on his throwing hand by the way. last year, he had the dirt bike accident. now this. but he says not to worry. i will be back. >> it was tough. i mean, but, you know, i can handle it. these guys can handle. it i think we will be fine. it is obviously not what i was expecting out of my last start, but that's what happens and now we got to deal with it. >> the giants will miss their ace in a big way. they open thursday at l.a. against the dodgers. by the way they play 10 games against the dodgers in the month of april and they will not have their ace. and the levi stadium, it was the head of the mexico national soccer team. >> ready, set.
fire! >> what a super duper goal! >> super duper goal. >> 59,000 fans packed the stadium to watch iceland playing mexico. one of the top players in mexico, miguel un scored two goals to give them the 3-0 victory. and we want to remind you that we will carry the fifa world cup in russia starting june 14. now one of the most anticipated boxing matches of the year is now in jeopardy of being canceled. it is a rematch between middle weight champion, scheduled for may 5 in vegas, but yesterday the nevada state athletic commission temporarily suspended alvarez as he tested positive for a banned substance. now, he says those positive test results came from eating contaminated beef. but he will now have to appear at a commission hearing on april 10 to determine if he can
continue with the fight. all right. it is the weekend. we got to figure out weather- wise, what we're doing and good news for you. because the rain subsided a little bit. we have some sunshine, right? >> a little bit of sunshine. we have clouds and rain out there, too. >> all right. >> that is great. >> a little unsettled. we like to call it unsettled. >> spin the wheel like that one. i might use that one later today. we have a mix of things going on out there this morning. we started out early this morning, overnight into the early morning hours with. a line of rain that kind of marched across the bay area. and so we are waking up with some wet pavement but then we cleared out just a little bit and now we're back with the cloudy skies and scattered showers reported over central and southern portions of the bay area. and here is a look at the storm tracker 2, where the circulation, right there, center of the storm, still off the coast, of oregon, and you can see, northern california, seeing some pretty good rain at this point, and into the sierra, the snow will continue to fall. and for us, it will be this. where we have mainly dry
conditions, and then we will see that line of rain just kind of pass through, with scattered showers, and then we will dry out once again, with a little bit of sunshine and the next possibility of scattered showers and that's the way the day is going to go. let's talk about what is going on in the santa cruz mountains. we are picking up light to moderate rain here at this point. and boulder creek, ben loman and scott valley and as we stretch over to portions of the south bay, it looks like some over los gatos and saratoga and over towards campbell, and willow gun and into san jose, some light to moderate rain falling. along the peninsula to the coast and the valley, and dumbarton bridge, and off to the east bay, and speaking of the east bay, take a look, a few scattered showers over highward and union city, and over toward dublin, along 580, and 680, and that stretch from san ramon through danville. you will have light rain there. and then off towards 580 and livermore. it looks like some there. and snow in the sierra, with snow levels dropping right now
