6:02 am
a 24 minute drive between the carquinez and macarthur maze. not bad there. i will show you something here. one thing that is very encouraging, yes, there is a back up but look at this ramp here. i don't know if you can see that but i am put that arrow on the ramp. that is a very good approach. almost no slow traffic there. when that happens we will have a lighter than usual day. this is a look at i-880 north and southbound. moving well up toward the coliseum. not stop and go yet. san francisco northbound 101 approaching the 80 split, a very nice looking drive there, as well so far. as i put the map up of the bay area, a lot of times we see red here. i see some red here on 680 heading south to 237, but that is about all. there have been no major issues in the south bay either. 6:02. back to the desk. new this morning police in fremont investigating a deadly

6:04 am
here. there haven't been any killings and it has probably been one of the longest stretches without a homicide according to city officials for as long as 40 years. we have now had our fourth homicide in the month of april that richmond police are investigating. >> leigh martinez in richmond. thank you. a vallejo elementary school teacher accused of inappropriate behavior will be hit with criminal charges. 36-year-old andrew lund is a 4th grade teacher at glen cove elementary school, arrested yesterday on suspicious of attempting to contact a minor for sex and sending harmful matter to a young person. lund communicate this had month over the internet with an undercover investigator posing as a young girl. hour time is 6:04. the two men charged in the oakland coast ship warehouse fire are due in -- ghost ship warehouse fire are due in court this morning.

whirlwind. >> reporter: this manager has had to hire more employees and extended store hours. but it is a somewhat different story across the bay at the berkeley patients group. after prop 64 took effect there was a big early buzz and lots of new customers, but it didn't last. >> the market has not shrunk and they are still purchasing cannabis. they are not coming to the licensed operators as much as we expected. >> reporter: and this woman blames the disappointing sale's figures on the operating costs that are high for legal operations. >> prices are high, taxes are high. i don't think it is fair but what can i say. >> reporter: to save money a lot of people continue to turn to the cheaper black market and state regulators have their hands full. since january the california bureau of cannabis control have

6:09 am
learn and work together and navigating the bright new world of legal cannabis. >> that was alexa advantage reporting. in the midst of the rocky rollout of recreational marijuana, some are hoping for stepped up enforcement in the future and a tax break from the state to keep the products affordable and help the legal cannabis industry stay competitive. well, san francisco is expecting a big turnout today as we have been talking about at hippie hill. we will break down the extra security precautions in place in anticipation of that record- breaking crowd. and easing tensions along the korean peninsula. is north korea backing down on one of its demands involving u.s. troops? and the san mateo bridge it looks pretty good as y drive out to the highrise. we have been looking at the dumbarton bridge and the other bridges. so far so good. and in the inland areas today no problems, but the

6:16 am
this is the westbound bay bridge backed up all the way to the maze. a 10 minute delay. we can see the traffic here on the taupe approach from 880 looking good. a little congestion but sometimes this ramp is full. this morning it is not and that is a good sign. also i-880 in oakland north and southbound, that traffic is moving well, as well as the traffic in san francisco to downtown san francisco. no problems will. and the commute on the bay area, look for reds on the roads. we have red on 680. that is the look at this pretty nice start to the morning commute. now to steve. let's get right to it. look at this from nothing about 15 or 20 minutes ago -- [ fog horn ] >> exactly. the fog powering over the midlands, and the sausalito hills. not on the san francisco side

6:25 am
knowing just how big the problem is. that means counting the empty storefronts. that count found more than 125 commercial vacancys in the richmond, something that can bring down business for everyone. >> we are trying to keep small business alive in our corridors because they are the backbone of the district. >> reporter: the merchant's association and business owners say a combination of retiring business owner, high rent ann rubin overall high cost of doing business in san francisco have led to many of the vacancies. melissa anderson owns foggy notion and just relocated to clemente street from one of the side streets. >> i was looking for a location for my business with more foot traffic here. >> reporter: she has reopened her doors here and while there are more businesses coming and going, slow business on the street slows everyone's growth. this isn't just a problem here in the richmond district. the supervisor says the same
6:26 am
story is being repeated throughout san francisco. that is why this count is so important and getting a look at the scope of the problem is the first step in getting a temperature of what is needed for these businesses. an update in the newsroom about wells fargo. they were fined $1 billion for abuses involving its car lone and -- car loan and mortgage business, the largest ever given. wells fargo agreed to pay the fine to settle allegations against the bank. wells fargo is headquartered in san francisco. by the way this case is not tied to the scandal that involve sos millions of bank -- involves millions of bank accounts set up without authorization by customers. 6:26. going green in the south bay. we will show you the all-
