4:18 pm
down and prosecute the scene. after several complications at the current sites, the city will focus on two new spots. the first will be on broadway near the waterfront where the city wants to build 104 units for low and middle income families. the city also plans to develop a 96 unit project in the mission district for low income senior citizens. the money for the projects was approved by voters in 2015, both housing developments are expected to be finished by 2020. let's turn things over now to bill martin in our weather center. clear skies today. we've had some wacky weather this week. >> there were a few showers out there. i had a couple reports of stray showers. outside right now it's mostly sunny. and it was raining. there is al toe cumulus. usually a fair weather cloud out in the santa clara valley. that is walnut creek. >> it looks like mt. diablo. >> it does. it looks like mt. diablo too. that is an interesting shot. oh it's san jose. [ laughter ]
4:19 pm
it looked like diablo to me too. let's look at the rain that fell last night. it came down pretty hard at times. kent field had over a half an inch of rain. it came down in a short amount of time. it was an hour, whatever. so you are averaging the rainfall rates in that cell last night for some were quarter inch or a half an inch an hour. the rain is over for now. the high pressure is going to build in. but not before not for too long. because as we go down the road, we will see another one of these weekend pulses like we did the last couple of days move through. that is toward the end of the weekend so don't fret yet. no rain out there right few. we have 4-6 inches of snow in the mountains. it's breezy outside. breezy conditions. you know as that pressure changes. the low goes through. it deposits the cool air. these are the highs. even with sunshine. ran a little cooler than yesterday. not the highs. current temperatures in the upper 50s. a few days ago we were in the
4:20 pm
70s. there is the wind. a cool wind in napa. gusting to 28. and sfo hitting 32 miles an hour gusts there. the winds are blowing pretty briskly. that cold air that settled in over night will be around tonight. so over night lows tonight we will see upper 30s, and certainly low 40s. and maybe find frost in those inland bay valleys. and a little bit of altocumulus. and you can see how green everything has become. when i come back, we'll talk about what i hinted at and the chance for rain toward the weekend. coming up a new study shows african american households in san francisco and oakland have the fewest home buying options in the country. we'll speak with the author of that study about her findings after the break.
4:21 pm
4:22 pm
4:23 pm
the american dream of homeownership is still out of reach for many african american families according to new research. zillow found that african americans can afford just 5% of listings in san francisco and oakland. compared to 42% for buyers over all. the study was based on home buyers spending 30% of their income on a monthly mortgage. for more we are joined by skylar olson director of economic research. is this really driven by income disparity? >> that is a big part of these numbers that are driven by it. when we look at what listings they can afford. it's important to remember if i'm talking san francisco,
4:24 pm
oakland area you are starting with high home values. when you talk about the kinds of listings that are available, you get more expensive. when i talk about the different levels of median household incomes, it really cuts the opportunities of black households down to a really small fraction. >> that is really disappointing. because 5% here in san francisco and oakland, that is the lowest in the country; right? >> right. it is exactly. 58% is a share of any racial group all across the country is the lowest in san francisco. in san francisco for any group is smaller than most places. but for african american for black households, it's even worse. and you know when we talk about why does this matter, if you're looking at how do you close these gaps, how do you change these divides? often the access to housing, access to better schools, access to better public schools
4:25 pm
and neighborhoods that offer social mobility is a part of getting out of this kind of situation if the first place. >> right. what other races did you find either had a disadvantage or advantage in the housing market? >> yeah. if you are looking at the classics what we analyze for this and analyst was black households, white households, hispanic and asian. white house holds can afford over half of the listings in the san francisco, oakland market. asians close to that. close to around half. but hispanic and black are much lower. driven fundamentally by disparities in income. but really that 5%, that is a startling number that really talks to just how closed out, how blocked off many black, african american families are from access to most of san francisco. >> right now there is a lot of people fleeing the bay area. what are the options then for
4:26 pm
african americans, latinos. should they be leaving the bay area? that seems horrible to say. the bay area is so diverse. >> and the should makes it a hard word. often the bay area whether it's san francisco, san jose, however far you are talking, this is an area that is traditionally offered the best social mobility. economic mobility. what i mean by that, the probability of being born into a low income household and yourself being middle income or higher income one day. as opposed to other areas across the country where that transition, that movement is much more difficult. the ability to do that is hard for you. you are closed off from that kind of mobility if you don't have access to homeownership often or different areas of the city like those that offer better schools and better opportunities. >> and yesterday was the 50th anniversary of the fair housing act that was signed by
4:27 pm
president lyndon b. johnson. clearly there is still discrimination. >> yeah the whole point of the fair housing act was to solve this kind of issue. and then it was systematically done by government maps that red lined certain areas and said we will not give mortgages in these kind of neighborhoods, those neighborhoods were mostly african american. and yet i follow 50 years from then to the current point in time and there is still this huge disparity in what people can afford and that continues to funnel different types of households into different neighborhoods. >> disappointing. skylar olson with zillow, we appreciate your time. tank for your research. >> thank you for having me. still to come how apple was able to go completely green in just about a decade. >> and next the ntsb is no longer allowing tesla to provide technical assistance
4:28 pm
into its investigation into the deadly tesla model x crash last month in mown tape view. baby boomers,
4:29 pm
here's something you should know. there's a serious virus out there that 1 in 30 boomers has, yet most don't even know it.
quote
4:30 pm
a virus that's been almost forgotten. it's hepatitis c. hep c can hide in the body for years without symptoms. left untreated it can lead to liver damage, even liver cancer. the only way to know if you have hep c is to ask your healthcare provider for the simple blood test. if you have hep c, it can be cured. for us, it's time to get tested. it's the only way to know for sure. the ntsb is no longer allowing tesla to provide technical assistance in its investigation into the deadly tesla model x crash last month in mountain view. for more we're joined by wall street journal tech. no big surprise, do you think in because it seems like the ntsb,
4:31 pm
the national transportation safety board and tesla have been sparring over this for the last week or ten days. >> well, this is incredibly unusual situation. most companies involved in these kind of crash investigations want a seat at the table. they want to be able to kind of have a voice and perhaps a sway what the investigators are thinking and how they see the situation. so, what's occurred here is essentially tesla's walk ad way from the table or if you listen to the ntsb has been push ad way from the table. the company is saying that they'll still provide some technical assistance, but these are not people that are sitting around the table helping each other at this point. >> this all started apparently because the ntsb was upset that tesla released some information on the crash, and the ntsb wasn't ready for them to do that? >> yeah. what ntsb does here, it's a long history of managing these situations. they get all the groups together for the investigation. they control how they go forward and how they release information because the ntsb says they're concerned about creating a false narrative or creating rumors or
4:32 pm
creating a misunderstanding of what actually occurred. so by tesla going out on several occasion and talking about the crash and the details and most recently this week saying that the driver was at fault, these are the kind of things that the crash investigators they don't want to see in public yet. >> so, i guess there's still a little confusion about who actually left, the ntsb says it's not going to use tesla's information, and tesla decided to remove itself from the investigation. what's going on? >> well, it's a rare public feud between a major auto maker and a safety investigators here. late last night, tesla put out a statement saying that they had walked away from being part of this agreement, this investigation agreement. then this morning today the ntsb put out its own statement and said that they had kicked out tesla. tesla then fought back as a pretty strong statement against the ntsb accusing the government agency of being more concerned
4:33 pm
about generating press headlines than safety. >> what do you think this is going to do for the future of these kinds of investigations because we're new territory with thesesem autonomous vehicle and eventually fully. the ntsb is going to be heavily involved in any of these crashes that take place in the future. what does this mean for potential cooperation down the road? >> well, you bring up this interesting point here. we're in uncharted territory. it's really unclear exactly how the u.s. is going to regulate self-drive cars going forward. -- and really what the role for the government is and what the role for companies are in these kind of discussions. and, so we're seeing that kind of played out here in realtime. >> and tesla is saying that it's going to file a freedom of information act request to try to get some information from the ntsb on why it feels the ntsb is focused on them instead of so many other car companies, do you know anything about that? >> well, the ntsb is started looking into more self-driving vehicle technology. they are involved in the
4:34 pm
investigation in tempe arizona where a test vehicle crashed and killed a woman. there are some other tesla vehicles that are being investigated. you have to remember that in 2016 there was a fatal tesla vehicle crash that involved autopilot. and while federal reg lators said tesla wasn't at fault that it wasn't defective hardware, the ntsb said that actually tesla did share some of the blame because the system allowed the driver to take its hands off for too long a period of time. so, this is an agency that has been a critical of tesla in the past, and by tesla not being in that table, it's going to -- it's essentially going to diminish its role in trying to sway the findings that come out in the next year or so. >> and the lawsuit that has been filed against tesla by the family of walter huang who was killed in mountain view in that crash. and tesla is arguing that the driver in that case also didn't have his hands on the steering
4:35 pm
wheel for at least 6 seconds prior to the crash. so this is a legal thing that has some serious consequences. >> yeah. the last i heard from the law firm is they're waiting for the ntsb to finish up. they're going to want to essentially a road map probably for their future litigation. the issue here is that tesla, it shares -- its shares have risen in the last year, and large part because of the company's technology on the road. so its concerns about its safety are a big ding against its reputation. so, elon musk, the ceo is going to come out very aggressively in defending his company and defending the ability dollars of auto title. >> tim higgins from the wall street journal, the tech reporter. thanks so much for explaining all this to us. and we know that the ntsb will have a final report. it takes a long time. they're very detailed but we expect to learn a lot from it. tim, thank you so much. >> after working on it for nearly a decade, apple officials say they've hit an environmental
4:36 pm
milestone for the company. brett larson explains how this work is to reduce its carbon footprint. >> reporter: it wasn't easy, but apple has gone completely green. the california-based company achieving the environmental goal after six years of work on everything from financing projects to locating new buildings near renewable energy sources. a data center built a few years back is powered by a nearby solar farm. and the company's newly built headquarters also grabbed sunshine during the day. there are batteries on site to store it up for cloudier times. back in 2010, just 16% of the company facilities were green. and the new milestone comes amid rumors of a new apple watch, the fourth version of the popular wearable technology. this time around it's rumored to be getting a complete design overhaul. while it will keep the cellular connection and stay waterproof, it will also have a larger screen and bigger battery. but there is also reports of some new censors to give the
4:37 pm
device more abilities to track your health and your movement. the watch can already keep track of your ticker. but the rumored series 4 may even help you improve your golf swing or tell you if you're doing your bicep curls correctly. the series 4 watch will be announced in september with a price just under 400 bucks. in new york, i'm brett larson, fox news. it is a day when time stands still for israelis across the country. i'm amy kellogg and i will tell you more on how the victims of the holocaust are being honored on this day. and we are tracking some more rain in the five-day forecast and it will show up towards the end of the weekend. >> ktvu fox 2, complete bay area news coverage.

4:41 pm
is always with us and, so is our appreciation to the courage that established the state of israel. hope is first and foremost our ability to defend ourselves on our own against those who want to annihilate us. >> reporter: telling the crowd we must remember no one is exempt from acts of hate. >> events of recent days teach that standing up to the evil and aggression is a mission imposed on every generation. >> reporter: in pole land, thousands participated in the annual march for the living walking between auschwitz as a way to remember the victims. the march of the living is particular important this year after a diplomatic spat between poland, israel, and the united states over a holocaust law adopted by warsaw that criminalizes any suggestion of polish complicity in the atrocities. in milan, amy kellogg. california community college students who want to transfer
