thank you for joining us here on "mornings on 2". it is wednesday, may 9. i am pam cook. >> i am dave clark. let's get your weather forecast with steve paulson. >> it is the coolest day the week by far today. we have a big fog bank and local drizzle out there. we have low clouds. everybody except santa rosa is cloudy. tim says good morning, mr. paulson. is my dad here? if my dad is here, he will tell me to take out the trash. heading to the mission district this morning, shorts are no short? no shorts, it will be upper 50s, low 60s. there is too much of a low cloud deck around. san francisco we go 59, 54. averages 64, 51. temperatures around the bay, including san francisco, 53, 53, 54, 54, 54. everyone is consistent.
for alameda and oakland 57. 50 in santa rosa but 60 in san jose. there are plenty of clouds in place. with this in place it will be cool well out into the delta and the sacramento valley. this system is moving in from the north. there is 50s on the ocean temperatures from washington to santa barbara. that is coldwater. 50s to near 60 for some. and onshore wind or breeze, depending on your approximate any -- your proximity to the coast. 50s, 60s and 70s today. you are looking at something. what do you see? >> i am finalizing my 160 map here. there is a crash with a concrete load that spilled as a result of this car fire coming out of rio vista south to antioch.
a lot of people do this. traffic is slow. it is slow northbound for less time, but southbound at 160 is the freeway that a lot of people in the delta use and the highway that a lot of people in the delta used to get to this area. it is blocked right now. they are trying to open one lane. your alternate is highway 12, 80 or highway 5 and get back on highway 4. i realize that is a long way. as a result, there will be traffic tied up. we are looking at the richmond bridge. this traffic is good if you're getting out there early to drive from richmond to san rafael. it looks like a nice drive so far. the bay bridge is crowded backed up to the maccarthur maze. the metering lights are on. once you make it on the span it
looks good. let's talk about 880, northbound and southbound. no fog and not a lot of slow traffic at. on the san mateo bridge it is moderate heading out to the peninsula. president trump says three americans being held captive in north korea are on their way back home. the president tweeted this quote, i am pleased to inform you that secretary of state mike pompeo is in the air and on his way back from north korea with the three wonderful gentlemen that everyone is looking so forward to meeting. they seem to be in good health. also good meeting with kim jong un. date and place of meeting set. secretary of state mike pompeo was in north korea to finalize plans for the summit between president trump and north korean leader, kim jong un. it is expected the meeting between the two leaders will happen in the next month. north korea has already committed to the and d nuclear rising of the threat of a u. s. invasion if the threat of a u. s. invasion stops.
valley medical center is back to normal after hazardous material scare overnight at that hospital. >> ktvu's alex savidge is there with more about the patient who triggered this response. >> reporter: this patient was apparently having trouble breathing after inhaling some sort of chemical at the facility where they work. they were airlifted here to valley medical center. they arrived before midnight last night. once the patient arrived at the hospital, staff members grew concerned about other people potentially being exposed to this chemical. they decided to isolate that patient and begin decontaminating them. they called for help from the san jose fire department hazardous incident team. firefighters worked to decontaminate 10 members of the
medical staff, including the flight medics who airlifted that patient. that whole process disrupted emergency room operations for sometime here at the hospital. fire crews eventually figured out what type of chemical they were dealing with. they tell us they were using just soap and water to decontaminate everyone. >> the patient was decontaminated on scene. it sounds like there might have been a respiratory issue that had a secondary contamination. procedures were followed. these things happen sometimes. all the proper mitigations were put in place once we found out there were additional problems. >> -- >> reporter: they also decontaminated the medical helicopter that was used to airlift the patient here to the valley medical center. firefighters did not tell us what type of chemical that patient was exposed to or where they were working when they were exposed to it. we understand the person was having difficulty breathing. no word on that patient's exact condition. we understand according to firefighters, all the patients here at the hospital were not exposed to the chemical.
everything is back to normal this morning here at valley medical center. new this morning, an arrest was made a few hours ago outside of the tunnel on highway 24 after someone fired a gun during a dispute with the caltrans tow truck driver. the suspect had a flat tire and pulled over to the center median. the caltrans worker came by and told him he needed to move to the right shoulder. authorities say there was some type of argument. the suspect turned and pulled out a gun and fired a shot in the air. his friend came and they both fled the scene. the chp shutdown all lanes of highway 24 to investigate what happened. they found out where the suspect lived and took him
under arrest. all lanes of highway 24 reopened by 3:45 am this morning, about 90 minutes after all of that started. today you see food service workers, custodians -- uc food service workers, custodians and more support will be rallying for today's strike. this was the scene at ucsf parnassus campus yesterday. walkouts are taking place at all uc campuses around the state. today san francisco general hospital workers plan to rally at noon in solidarity. the main sticking point is job security, retirement and wages. >> the middle class is being eliminated across the board. now you have a lot of people of color, women making on average 20% less than a white male who does a comparable job at the university. outsourcing is the reason.
>> in a statement, the university said the union is demanding a 20% raise over 30 -- over three years and the university cannot justify such a raise. san francisco police chief bill scott is reportedly one of three finalists to become the new police chief of los angeles. the l.a. times reports that he was interviewed last week for the job. he is up for it, along with two commanders already hire by the lapd. the san francisco police department would not make a comment on this. the current police chief of l.a. is retiring next month. chiefs got used to be a deputy police chief in los angeles before he moved to san francisco last year to become the police chief in san francisco. a new report is listing evidence to support the claims of climate change here in
california. according to the california environmental protection agency, longer droughts, warmer temperatures and the shrinking snowpack are all a result of the domino effect of climate change in our state. another consequence listed in the report called indicators of climate change in california are bigger and more intense forest fires which scientists say will destroy more wildlife habitat, cause humans to breed more contaminated air and put more homes in danger. a 2016 bill has california on course to significantly reduce emissions by 2030. later this morning, gina haspel, who is been nominated to head the cia is expected to address her involvement in controversial interrogation methods used on suspected terrorists. in 2002, she was in charge of a secret cia prison in thailand where terrorist suspects were subjected to with the cia called enhanced interrogation tactics, including waterboarding. a senator from oregon has been pushing the cia to declassify documents about what gina haspel did. >> if this is allowed to go
forward, it is what i have called a secret confirmation process. it sure as heck will not be the last one. >> the cia released excerpts of gina haspel's planned markets today. she says she will not restart any sort of torture program and wants to strengthen relations with american allies. allies in europe say they are committed to the iran nuclear deal despite the departure the u. s. in a nationally televised address yesterday, president trump announced he was withdrawing from the deal. he called it defective and said it failed to stop i ron's nuclear ambitions. president trump says he is willing to negotiate annealed deal with aurora, but for now he will reimpose sanctions that were waived under the agreement. >> we cannot prevent an iranian
nuclear bomb under the decaying and rotten structure of the current agreement. the iran deal is defective at its core. >> iran's leader reacted saying his country might quote, start enriching uranium more than before. the 2015 deal was made under president obama with the ride, china, great britain, russia and germany. these nations say they will uphold the terms of the agreement and try to prevent it from falling apart. former president obama called president trump's decision to withdraw misguided and a serious mistake. taxable income from recreational marijuana sales here in the area. how much as it brought in and how much does it compare to the expectations? new eruptions and more

easy for you to say. let's go to the eastshore freeway and look at that. westbound 80 from the carquinez bridge to the maccarthur maze is a 32 minute drive. that is about normal. when you get to the bay bridge, another 20 minutes or so. that is also normal . northbound 80 is beginning to fill in a little bit just after davis street on the drive. there is a problem southbound 880 i just found out about. southbound 880 at the 23rd offramp, we are trying to get a picture of it. there is a crash south bound. it is an overturned vehicle. traffic will be slow. if the fellows in the control room can bring up the roof cam, i can show you what it is doing to the traffic. it is very, very slow southbound 880 trying to get out of this area heading south. i would recommend using eastbound 580 instead.
eastbound 580 is a much better route than southbound 880. we will get that picture for you may be in the next traffic update. it is not very good leaving that area. there it is. this is what you will be facing. use eastbound 580. let's bring in steve paulson. >> a lot of low clouds in place with a few breaks but most locations stay cloudy to mostly cloudy. we have a few sun breaks through there, but the fog bank ramped up big time. water temperatures are very cold. before we get to that, friday night into saturday morning, mainly north and east bay hills, we have a high wind watch. not a warning, but a watch. we think it might happen, that is why a watch has been issued. it is still two days away. it will be friday night mainly above 1000 feet. a lo will dig into the great basin of nevada.
