7:00 am
>> and good morning. i'm dave clark. let's talk about your thursday weather. steve paulson knows -- >> it looks nice today. a bit warmer. gasia, good morning. >> and to you. >> dave is right there. it looks nice on a little more sunshine and our good friend jim at the sausalito yacht harbor. good morning. spring is around the bay this morning. sunny and clear as far as you can see. that is a good sign. 40s for a few. cool readings. patchy low clouds around. they will not last as long today. but they're not going anywhere. they're not disappearing completely. they will be back over the next few days. calmer inland today as the low responsible for the thunderstorms yesterday is exiting stage right. thunderstorms, maybe a few popping up over the sierras. enough moisture to allow heating. west at sfo. northwest at 12 at half moon bay. i think you get the idea. there's a westerly breeze there. 40s and 50s.
7:01 am
napa airport drop today 42 cool degrees this morning. mid-50s for everybody. polk valley 45. mill valley, 45. mid-40s occidental, sebastopol. cloud cover yesterday and thunderstorm activity has moved east for now. low kicks out and moves east. high pressure not that strong. but still build in for a couple days of slighter warmer temps. 60s and 70s under mostly sunny skies. 7:01. quieter. still okay or something on your screen? >> things are better than they were. >> good. >> in the last few days. we've had a couple of rough commutes obviously. right now we're looking at the east shore freeway. we're going to start there and traffic is moving along okay if you are driving through and getting to the bay bridge toll plaza. it is backed up. it is a little slow but this is not unusual for this time of the morning. it is jam packed at the height of the commute for a 25-minute delay. this is a look at interstate 880 north and southbound.
7:02 am
the traffic here is also looking good. one of the big things that we have that is different as we don't have a major over-arching problem like yesterday that blocked several lanes, we have traffic that will be slow on 880 southbound as you drive from hayward to fremont. it's getting a little busy. 680 is all right through dublin. i want to have a new crash that just came in this. this one just came in right at 7:00. just reported. southbound 101 in novato, traffic is backing up now from highway 37. that is in marin county. 7:02. let's go back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. we're following a breaking story in oakland. a deadly crash at 98th and bancraft avenues. allie rasmus has been out there for a while. you know the latest and what police found there. good morning, allie. >> reporter: yes. good morning. we will are going live from 98th and sunny side which is a
7:03 am
block away from where the crash happened. it is up at intersection underneath the traffic signal you that see there. you see the alameda coroner's van is on the scene. they have removed the body of the victim of this crash. what we can tell, there were two cars involved in it. at least one person died. a second person was taken to the hospital with injuries. we don't know the extent of the injuries or their condition right now. the crash happened around 2:30 in the morning. several neighbors we have spoken with say the impact of that two-vehicle collision was loud enough to wake them up in the middle of the night. >> just an explosion. just a loud boom. like a loud crash. so i don't know. >> it is very dangerous intersection. uh-huh. >> why? >> just because cars drive really fast. going both ways. going down bancroft or up and down 98th. it is dangerous. >> reporter: we have spoken to several neighbor who's are concerned about that intersection and the speed with
7:04 am
which some vehicles cross through it at times. we saw investigators recover what looked like a firearm. we don't know how or if that weapon is connected in any way to the crash yet. in fact, officers here at the scene have not been able to give us any detailed information about exactly what happened with regards to this crash, whether it was a hit and run or some sort of crime occurred or just a horrible accident. at least one person killed and another injured. 98th between sunny side and macarthur remains closed. back out here live, we have seen many vehicles, even delivery trucks and garbage trucks diverted around the intersection. the big rigs have been stuck here for a couple of hours since the intersection and these two blocks of 98th avenue have been closed. now that the coroner's van has arrived at the scene, it has removed the victim's body, we believe it may not be too much longer before police open up the intersection. but, again, we don't have an estimated time for reopening. 98th avenue between sunny side and macarthur closed this
7:05 am
morning. back to you guys. >> allie rasmus in oakland, thank you. happening now, homicide investigators are looking for evidence that could help them figure out who shot to death two people late last night in east san jose. a man and a woman died. ktvu's alex savidge is in the area where they were killed. this is right along sierra road, not far from mount hamilton. alex. >> reporter: yeah. gasia, good morning to you. this double homicide happened last night along a remote stretch of roadway here in the hills of east san jose. i'll show you the scene behind us here. you can see you have a squad car that is blocking off this road. because there still is an active investigation that is unfolding about a mile up the road from here. and it is beyond where all of the homes are. so there's not any homes in the area where the actual crime scene is. still an active investigation here after this double homicide last night. and just about half an hour ago we were live on mornings on 2 when we watched a dark honda civic being towed away from the scene. clearly that car has something
7:06 am
to do with this investigation. it is unclear though who the car belongs to at this point. this happened last night on the 3800 block of sierra road which is just a few miles east of interstate 680. officers were called out here at about 10:00. that's when they found a man and a woman who had been shot several times. both of them died here at the scene. police have not released any information on the man and woman who were killed. but certainly as neighbors in this area wake up and learn what has happened, they are certainly surprised to hear about this kind of a crime. >> i go to bed last night about 10:00. and i not heard anything. i just heard it this morning. i'm kind of scared because, you know, everybody is scared of something like that. but i don't know anything. i just heard from you guys now. >> reporter: no arrests have been made so far. and police have not released any sort of a description on the person or the people who possibly are responsible for this double homicide.
7:07 am
authorities say these were the ninth and tenth homicides of the year sofa are in the city of san jose. still an active investigation unfolding in the hills of east san jose along sierra road. we expect that the on-scene investigation will be wrapping up sometime soon. if anyone has any information on this double homicide that happened late last night, they should put in a call right away to san jose police. gasia. >> thank you, alex. 49ers linebacker rubin foster will be back for a preliminary hearing today. he is facing charges related to an alleged domestic violence incident. just last week he pleaded not guilty to three felony charges. the alleged victim is his ex- girlfriend who first told police that foster punched her but later recanted the accusations. the ex-girlfriend today will testify that foster did not hit her and that she lied to police at first. prosecutors will then decide if they will go forward with the charges. your time is 7:08. a giver who was arrested in

connection with tuesday night's crash that killed three people on interstate 880 in fremont is due in court today. 21-year-old dang tran of san jose is charged with gross vehicular manslaughter, driving under the influence of marijuana and possessing an illegal weapon. the chp says witnesses saw a white toyota camry speeding and driving erratically just before the crash on interstate 880 near stevenson. the victims were 39-year-old noel johnson, 14-year-old christie lemus and 9-year-old brook lemus. the chp says it is increasingly on the lookout for signs of marijuana impairment. they say their officers use field sobriety tests to determine which drivers may be under the influence of marijuana as they drive. and they say the test is similar to the ones used for alcohol. >> can i do these multiple things at one time. can i stand on one foot, lift
7:09 am
my foot, count out loud. you may smell alcohol. we may smell marijuana coming from the car. we may see the speech is somewhat impaired. a little slower and not really able to respond to our questions. >> now, last year across the nine bay area counties, the chp arrested 197 people suspected of marijuana impairment. since january 1st, when the sale of recreational marijuana became legal in california, 87 people have been arrested so far in the bay area for that same charge. now, officer williams is a drug recognition expert for the chp. we're going to talk to him live about driving under the influence of marijuana. that is coming up today on the 9. time now is 7:09. ram pant drug use at one of the busiest bart stations in san francisco. >> it looks third world. you wouldn't think you were in america. the one bart board member who is taking action this morning to try to stop it.

bad. but slow traffic getting into the west valley. let's go back to the desk. happening now a member of the bart board of directors is following through on a promise that he made after disturbing video was released showing people passed out or shooting up at the bart station. the former supervisor who is now a bart board member is at the station this morning to help patrol the area. into residence some of the videos that he saw and is reacting to. he arrived at the civic center bart station about an hour ago and will be there until 8:30. this comes after bart rider showed videos of people passed out or shooting up inside of the civic center bart station. >> it looks third world. honestly you wouldn't think that you're in america. body after body sitting down, needles, feces. i mean everything. >> the san francisco police department has recently joined bart police in patrolling the area just this week. >> and gasia, frank mallicoat is at the civic center bart

7:35 am
here, a heavier police presence, you're shedding a light on a huge problem. >> i'm one director but i'm accountable. and honestly i am embarrassed the at conditions. i feel if all i can do is sit here and be in my chair, that is what i should be doing. we're meeting with mayor farrell. we had a meeting with bart pd and social services. because bart is a transit agency. we can't help people get out of the cycle addiction here. but we're meeting with the mayor this afternoon and i hope to see -- we should have mental health workers here. they need help. >> all right. thank you very much. part of the board of directors. i have chief carlos rojas. what have you seen this morning. >> a clean station. no druggies in the hallways. of course that is attributed to the police presence. i have seen both san francisco pd and bart police officers throughout the station. >> reporter: and will this become a habit where you will
7:36 am
have more bart pd down here and sfpd. >> it is not being a habit. it has to be part of our regular strategy to make sure that we have a consistent presence, whether it is bart pd, san francisco pd or just the joint effort that we do regularly. >> reporter: can we talk about the video? it must have turned your stomach. >> yeah. absolutely. the video is shocking. whether it is a video where you have someone's drug use on the city street or down here in the station. >> reporter: long-term solution? >> well, we really have to have a con simulates tense presence from the policing stand point. also there has to be suffer resources for those addicted to drugs and also sufficient shelter space, which is a struggle throughout california. >> reporter: it will take some time. >> absolutely. >> reporter: all right. chief, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> reporter: heard from the chief, the board of directors here as well. it is a problem that will take a while to fix, so to speak. but the presence alone as you can see hallway is clear. so when you have people here keeping an eye on things that,
7:37 am
is a good thing that. is the latest. we're live inside of the civic center bart station in the city. i'm frank mallicoatment back to the desk. >> thank you, frank. our question of the day is this: who should bare the most responsibility for improving conditions object bart? should it be politicians? should it be the police? should it be bart or somebody else? let us know what you think by voting on the ktvu twitter page and also comment on the ktvu facebook page as well. again, our question of the day, you know what it is. here is a look at the results so far. 20% say politicians. 8% say the police. 68% say bart should do it. and 4% say others. you can continue to vote. today san francisco mayor mark farrell will announce a new effort in the city to help heroin addicts beat their addiction. the mayor's office says the program is the first in the country and will bring direct treatment to addicts. the mayor is including $6 million in his current budget proposal to pay for a 10-person

7:39 am
7:40 am
7:41 am
>> welcome back to mornings on 2. it is now 7:40. there are two major stories this week involving san francisco's board of supervisors. the board rejected two nominees for police commission and there was a contentious hearing about the clean up of hunters point. >> she represents district 10 that includes hunters point. thank you for many here. >> absolutely. thank you for having me. >> there are allegations that the contractor falsified soil samples. >> yeah. we're talking about the shipyard. about 953 acres. land that was owned by the navy where there were a lot of war time activity that's happened. as a result there's a lot of toxic chemical that's were in the soil and that are still in -- in and around the area. the concern has come with the fact that in 2012, it was identified. and now in 2016 verified that
7:42 am
soil samples were substituted. clean soil was substituted for dirty soil which means that all of the data was falsified, which means now it is called into question the people that are living there are they safe. and so the hearings which lasted four hours on monday was strictly about rescanning to assure that the people living there right now are safe and not in harm's way and rescanning parcel g. >> tech interest tech sent a representative. the board of supervisors didn't want to hear from the person. tell us about that. >> tetra tech brought all of their executives and a team of folks, experts to talk about the work that they have done on the shipyard and the work that they didn't do. i requested that they have their chief environmental officer present in the hearing. instead they opted to send their attorney.
7:43 am
and i had a legal arbitration. it wasn't anything -- the attorney had only been with the company for six months. we're talking about a clean-up that has been going on since the closure of the shipyard in 1974. 1974. so i'm looking for someone that has some institutional knowledge. i have constants who -- constituents with a longer history with the project. >> you kicked him out of the meeting. >> i can't kick him out. he left in a huff. i believe that the contracts that at the interest tech receives from the navy should no longer be extended. >> all of its projects. >> yes. it is a multi billion dollar company. pays its executives hundreds of millions of dollars and still
7:44 am
is allowed to go forward. how do you come back from falsifying data? people's lives are at stake. the real thing that i'm advocating for is the clean-up of parcel g and a rescan of the soil in parcel a. because our job as elected leaders is to protect the health of the homeowners. >> let's talk about the police commission. there were nominees to be on the police of commission. the board of supervisors rejected them. why and how vulnerable is the city. >> the city is not as have younerrible as one would -- vulnerable as one would think. the majority rejected two commissioners. quite frankly two commissioners have done an outstanding job in their service. about you it is a point in time where we are today. the police commission is a policy making body that is going to have large responsibilities to move the 272 department of justice
7:45 am
recommendations forward into fruition. so it is -- i'm of the mind-set that it is a better sound decision to allow a pause, get right -- fully vet strong candidates and then place them on the commission. you see the commission is made up of 7 seats. currently there are three now. there were more applicants working their way through the pipeline. we will have someone in place at the police commission with a full quorum starting june 6th. >> right now you don't have a quorum. suppose something big happens. suppose the police chief leaves. >> to be fair, we didn't have a quorum before the two names came forward. >> right. >> so the issue of whether or not there is a quorum issue is inconsequential. there is nothing scheduled of grave or serious nature. >> there are however many sources saying that the current san francisco police chief bill scott is one of three finalists to go back to his long-time
7:46 am
home, the los angeles police department to be chief there. have you heard from chief scott if he is a finalist or considering a job in l.a. >> the chief hasn't confirmed his future intentions. it would be a loss for our city if we were to lose chief bill scott. >> okay. >> supervisor cohen from san francisco, thank you for coming in. >> thank you. >> thank you for the information and all of the best to you. >> thank you. thank you very much. >> thank you for joining us. 7:46. let's help get you out the door. we will call on sal to do that. it has been a week of traffic, sal. >> it sure has been, gasia and dave. today we have a new motorcycle accident just reported a few moments ago. northbound 101 at mckee. that involves a car and a motorcycle. this commute has already been slow. now that will be extra slow if you drive northbound 101 on southern san jose trying to get to sunnyvale. this will be a big thing in your way. more people are likely to get on 280 and 85. those freeways are already
7:47 am
crowded. want to let you know it is there near mckee. we also have slow traffic from hayward to fremont on southbound 880. dumbarton and san mateo bridge traffic is moderate. it is slow getting into oakland from san leandro. highway 4 is slow through pittsburgh and bay point. concord to walnut creek on 680, typical here at the bay bridge toll plaza. we can see traffic is backed up for a 20-minute delay. san francisco, northbound 101 slows from about silver avenue to cesar chavez. then you can see traffic looks good approaching the 80 split. 7:47. let's bring in steve. >> what time is it? >> 13 minutes before 8:00. >> thank you, sir. >> you're welcome. >> from the san rafael camera, that is our director jeff green telling me in my ear we're going to the san rafael camera. there is stuff, low clouds out there. patchy low clouds. thank you, jeff. steve, good morning. josie wants to know when the dog days of summer start. she is missing her pool time.

7:49 am
source like they did yesterday. on the peninsula, low 50s.  atherton a cool 50. 55 over at half moon bay. union city is in there. foster city 56. so is belmont. a lot of 40s this morning. 30s up in the mountains, including truckee. the activity yesterday has pushed off to the east, way out of the picture for me. one system kicks out. the low pressure will build in for a couple of days. then another low, another one? yes. this one coming in from the northwest that. will drop in sunday. until then a little warmer for your friday and saturday. but the fog will still be here nights and mornings. we have nice conditions but it won't be clear. 60s and 70s on the temps. even clearlake and vacaville at 78 and 77. that is pretty nice. same for brentwood and walnut creek at 74. danville is in there. 68 berkeley. oakland downtown. 70 in san jose to 77 in gilroy.

8:02 am
average for inland temps. 8:02. you're not looking at your screen. >> yeah. but i already know what is going on. >> i think you do. >> yes. it is a motorcycle accident that has really slowed commutes in san jose. if you're driving, let's say from the blossom hill area of san jose, it is solid now because of the motorcycle crash between alan rock and mckee. three lanes taken up. it is taking 40 minutes to drive what should take ten driving this way. some people may use 85. that is fine. but you're going to see slow traffic into the valley. some people may be on 280. that is also very slow. and there was also another accident with a less serious injuries northbound 101 at the lawrence expressway. southbound 880 is slow down to stevenson. and the rest of the commute is all right. we do have southbound el camino real at james in redwood city near sequoia high school, they're investigating an auto
8:03 am
versus pedestrian accident there. still slow in contra costa county. bay bridge will be backed up as you drive through. i want to go back to something here. we talked about contra costa county. i don't want to leave out people in marin county. it is slow. we had earlier accidents here. southbound 101 backed up from rolland boulevard down to central san rafael. back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. >> thank you, sal. oakland police are investigating a deadly crash that killed at least one person. >> this happened at 98th and bancroft in east oakland. allie rasmus has been at the scene throughout the morning. we can also bring in alex savidge who is working a story in the far south bay about a -- a terrible situation there as well, alex, in san jose. >> reporter: yeah. really a terrible situation that unfolded here in a remote part of east san jose. we're up here in the hills right along sierra road. this is where the double homicide happened late last night. you can see just how remote this area is.
8:04 am
it is far beyond any of the houses in this area. no houses nearby where this double shooting happened last night. police have wrapped up their investigation here at the scene. as you can see. but a short time ago we did watch as a dark honda civic was towed away from the scene. we believe there may have been a second car that was towed away as part of the investigation. now, officers were called out here at about 10:00 last night. that's when they found a man and a woman who had been shot multiple times. both of them died here at the scene. now, police have not released any information on the man and woman who were killed here. but of course neighbors, a lot of them waking up to learn about what took place and a lot of them very surprised to hear what happened. >> it makes us uncomfortable. until we find out details, if it was a targeted situation or random, we're just -- that's kind of why i'm still here. >> reporter: and that neighbor we spoke with a short time ago told us that he also heard a
8:05 am
car racing down this street, down sierra road and heading down into town around the time of last night's shooting. now thus far no arrests have been made in connection with this double homicide. police have also not released any sort of a description on the person or the people who they think may be responsible for this crime. these were the ninth and tenth homicides of the year here in the city of san jose. again, no arrests have been made. san jose police still actively working this case after gathering evidence here at this scene, this remote crime scene, throughout the night. and obviously if anybody out there has any information on these two killings that happened last night, they should put in a call right away to san jose police. gasia. >> alex, thank you. >> back now to the story we mentioned in oakland where police are investigating a deadly crash that killed at least one person. ktvu's allie rasmus reports. >> reporter: we are at 98th avenue and sunny side in oakland. the crash happened about a block away from where we are. we're standing outside of the crime scene tape and the police
8:06 am
perimeter. you can see what is left of the deadly crash that happened here at this intersection. it happened around 2:30 in the morning. the alameda county coroner's van arrived a short time ago and removed one victim's body from the crash scene. we know one person died. a second person was taken to the hospital with injuries. we don't know the extent of the injuries or their condition right now. several neighbors we have spoken to this morning say the impact of that two-vehicle collision was loud enough to wake them up in the middle of the night. >> just a big bang. just a -- kind of like a train. just something very massive. just the other day a car flipped over down the street right here. it is an ongoing thing. they need to put lights up here. >> reporter: earlier this morning we saw investigators at the scene recover what looked like a firearm near the crash site. we don't know how or if the weapon is connected to the crash that happened here. officers here at the scene have not been able to give us any detailed information about exactly what happened with
8:07 am
regards to this crash. whether it was a hit and run or if a crime occurred or just a horrible accident. one person killed, another injured. 98th between sunny side and macarthur remains closed. around this intersection, we also know that ac transit had to reroute a couple of bus lines because of the investigation here. we have reached out to oakland police spokespeople for more information and we are waiting to hear back from them. in oakland. allie rasmus, ktvu fox 2 news. we do have new information just into the news room i would like to pass on. oakland police now say they have confirmed they are in fact looking for a driver involved in the crash allie has been reporting on. they say the driver fled the scene and they have not provided us with suspect information. the man arrested in connection to tuesday night's crash that killed three people in fremont is schedule today appear inside of a courtroom this afternoon. facing charges of gross vehicular manslaughter, driving under the influence of
8:08 am
marijuana and possession of a legal weapon. we are learning more about the three people killed in the crash. they have been identified as 39- year-old noel johnson. 14-year-old christie lemus. and her 9-year-old sister brook. they were from san joaquin county. brook's track coach says she was a special person. >> we warm up in the beginning of the practice. she was always right in front of me. a big smiling face, always energetic. >> she loved to run. and she was really nice. >> both the girls' schools will have counselors available to help classmates and school staff cope with the sudden loss. five other people in the family were in the suv and injured in the collision. one is in critical condition. now, the chp says it is increasingly on the outlook for signs of marijuana impairment. the highway patrol says its officers use field sobriety tests to determine which drivers may be under the
8:09 am
influence of marijuana while behind the wheel. they say the test is similar to the ones used for alcohol. >> can i do these multiple things at one time? can i stand on one foot, lift my foot, count out loud. we may smell alcohol or marijuana coming from the car. we may see that the speech is impaired. a little slower and not really able to respond to our questions. >> last year in the bay area, chp arrested 197 people for suspected marijuana impairment. since january 1st of this year, when the sale of recreational marijuana became legal in california, 87 people have been arrested so far in the bay area for that same charge. coming up in the next hour, highway patrol officer williams who is a drug recognition expert for chp will join us to talk more about what officers are seeing out on the highways when it comes to driving under the influence of marijuana. the time now is 8:09. rubin foster will be back in court today for a preliminary hearing. he is facing charges relate today a domestic violence
8:10 am
incident. just last week he pleaded not guilty to three felony charges. the alleged victim is foster's ex-girlfriend who at first told police that foster punched her by late he recanted the accusations. the sacramento bee reports that the ex-girlfriend will testify that foster did not hit her and she lied to police initially. then prosecutors will decide whether whether or not they will go forward with the charges. the district has been criticized for allowing caserta to remain on staff even he is accused of sexually harassing students date being back to 2002. you will remember that he resigned from the city council and suspended his campaign for a seat on the board of supervisors just this week because of the sexual abuse allegations. the school district is setting up a task force of teachers, staff, students and teach parents to stream line sexual harassment reporting procedures. keeping up with the cost of living. we will look at the top careers
8:11 am
not making the cut when it comes to how much they pay. also million dollar homes, apartment that's rent for $4,000 a month. certainly that is considered normal in san francisco and san jose. but now those high prices are spreading to the suburbs. the latest on the bay area housing market that is pushing people out of the area. it is crowded on the bridge getting into san francisco right now. you can see traffic westbound recovering from some earlier problems on the san francisco side of the bridge. still a few low clouds around. most of those have cleared. at least over the city. it will be a nice day. but temps struggling to get above average. we will see what is in store for the weekend.
8:12 am

8:14 am
>> the amount of money you need to earn to afford a home in the bay area is on the rise again. the california association of realtors released its quarterly housing affordability report this week. it takes an annual income of $333,000 to buy a home in san francisco without putting yourself in financial trouble. the median household income is $83,000. even in community that's are 30, 40 minutes from silicon valley or san francisco, they're experiencing rent and home prices out of reach. as ktvu's tom vacar found out, the median price in walnut creek may be soon approaching a million dollars while rent can hit $4,000 a month.
8:15 am
>> reporter: walnut creek's median house price is about $900,000 and rising quickly. examples, stone eridge. a new community of attached homes is selling units in, get this, the low millions. what about walnut creek rentals? three bedrooms going for $3,700. almost $4,200 in the best areas especially close to bart. that is great for developers, current homeowners and landlords. but trouble for walnut creek. merchants are having big trouble finding people willing to commute here for relatively low paying jobs. even well paid skilled workers, for example, at the medical center often pass on such jobs due to the high cost of housing and living. >> you have both ends starting to squeeze. the tipping point is not far away. >> reporter: high housing prices often affect health. >> wear finding people are not taking medications because they
8:16 am
can't afford the medications. and so -- because they have to pay their rent. >> reporter: one possible solution, build more living units in buildings far higher than the city rules currently allow. >> it is a community decision. where is the best location for these development projects. what is that going to look like as far as the design component? what is the height going to be. >> reporter: without putting a lot more housing, the turnover in current home ownership guarantees low inventories, causing prices to keep rising. one relief came yesterday as via monty walnut creek broke ground for a community already 80% lease out. >> they're buying contracted care that allows them to stay here for the rest of their lives. >> so the fee structure enables them to take advantage of the equity if their home and pay what they're spending on a monthly basis to spend in their own home snooze seniors of means can lease a place the size they want, often using the
8:17 am
proceeds of the former homes to finance it. that puts more underutilized senior citizen owned homes on the market. >> i'm getting older. i'm 75. we don't have children. so we thought we need a place to go. >> we're fine right now. we're independent and mobile and we can go large distances to enjoy our friends. but things will probably be changing as the years go by. >> reporter: for walnut creek the issue is long-term sustainability because housing at these prices is working against that. tom vacar, ktvu fox 2 news. even people who are not looking inform buy a home are affected by high housing costs. many people who perform essential jobs can't afford to live here. they can't afford to do that work if they can't afford to live here. some do specialty construction work. the san jose mayor told us that his city is loses police officers and teachers due to
8:18 am
the high cost of housing. those who work as real estate agents can't afford to live in the neighborhoods their they sell property even though earn much higher wages living in the bay area than other people in less expensive cities. another new study finds people in marin county spend more time in commute traffic than people in the rest of the bay area. according to a new report it takes marin county residents an average of 32 men's to get to work. the bay area wide average is 31 minutes. people who live in belvedere have the longest commute spending an average of 40 minutes in their vehicles because of congestion on tiburon boulevard. downtown tiburon to 101 some days takes you 20 minutes or so just to get to the highway let alone getting into san francisco or oakland or san shows or however you're going. speaking of the commute, let's go to sal. >> it is a little slow in still cop valley. it has been affected about i a
8:19 am
motorcycle accident that has been there for a little less than hand hour. it will be slow. people have been diverting on to 280 northbound. it is not too bad in downtown. but it will be very slow getting up into the cupertino area. you also see slow traffic of course approaching highway 17 which is typical. at the very least we don't have what we had yesterday with the broken water main. that is cleared up. so you don't have any unusual backups. 101 near alan rock cleared up finally. but it is backing traffic up still from capital expressway. the only saving grace that we have is some of the other commutes around the bay have been slightly lighter. for example, hayward to fremont this morning, it slows near whipple. union city and fremont border getting down to fremont and you will see slow traffic not the
8:20 am
dumbarton and san mateo bridges. today's weather, let's bring in steve. >> thank you, sir. it looks good. some areas with some sun. that is some sun. others though are still cloudy. and a lot of that cloud cover is up in lake county and mendocino county. jake mckenzie. a delightful morning in rohnert park. that was about 30 minutes now. now they are 55. a lot of low 50s. mid-50s here. hillsberg, 51. 56 in american canyon. 56 in novato. happy thursday. temps may be oddly clear but the sky is put okay a show with the dancing cloud. i agree with that. because of the jetstream over usment for this time of year when you get a low coming by and everything coming down out of the northwest, i noticed that yesterday. the clouds are moving fast here for this time of year. and there is an on shore wind for many locations. and as long as you have that
8:21 am
and the low cloud deck and they continue to kind of dance around but some areas get the sun. but they're not going away. i think they will come back late tonight and tomorrow. maybe even a little thicker for tomorrow. up around 6800 feet has moved well into nevada. it is out of the picture for now. 50s on the temps and a couple of low 60s. livermore only 56. san jose, 56. fairfield is 57. sfo is 58. redwood city, 58. that is all of the activity from yesterday. a lot of cloud cover holding on to the north. lake county and mendocino county, still low even though the low kicks out. there's a lot of moisture sticking around. high pressure will slowly build in and give us slightly warmer temps. but i don't see anything going above average. just near average. then another low drops in sunday and monday to reinforce the cool. 60s and 70s. nice day for the middle of may.
8:22 am
70 in san jose. east san jose probably low 70s as well. 60s in san mateo. 70 redwood city. if you like this kind of weather, there you go. if you don't it warmer, i don't see anything yet. >> thank you, steve. we're at about 48 hours and counting right now before prince harry and meghan markle tie the knot. more on the last minute preparations for the royal wedding underway.
