i'm terry mcsweeney. there is still hope for seven missing americans off the waters of mexico. their fishing boat capsized sunday morning and why there is still hope. here is a live look at sfo this morning. we have some fog around the bay area. i don't think there are any flight delays. we'll talk about the warming trend and dropping back the seasonal temperatures by the weekend. report of an accident on the upper deck. >> you can see traffic getting through the toll plaza pretty good. thank you for joining us. i'm kristen sze. >> and i'm eric thomas. it's july 5th and may be hotter than it was yesterday.
>> hard to believe when you look at the temperatures right now. much cooler than they were this time yesterday. in fact ten degrees cooler in concord, 78 in antioch, about 5 in san francisco, that is because the sea breeze is back and see the fog around the bay area. that will return to the coast as an offshore wind will develop that will pull the heat into the central valley. east bay valleys will lap up to the upper 90s. also around clearlake and ukiah, mid 90s in the north bay. closer you get to the water the cooler you'll be, oakland is 78, half moon bay 65. first we'll toss it to danielle. we are dealings with an accident in san mateo. chp has issued a sig alerted, southbound 101 just past highway 92. three left lanes are currently
blocked at this time. traffic is able to use the right lane to get past the scene of that crash. over the bay bridge toll plaza, traffic is light but we are getting reports of an accident on the upper deck. this is just at treasure island. it does have the left lane blocked there. a very busy night and morning for firefighters, house and apartment fires and likely caused by 4th of july celebrations. amy hollyfield is live in berkeley where an apartment building burned. >> reporter: we have several fires but amazing pictures here in berkeley. the roof of an apartment building caught fire. sky 7 caught these flijs up above for us. you can see how enormous the fire was. it did burn the roof. investigators say it's too early whether to say fireworks caused
this. none was hurt. let's take a look further east. fighters dealt with half a dozen fires. the sky over east contra costa county lit up with illegal fireworks. a lot of them last night. they also had a lot of fires on the ground. this is bay point. no injuries were reported from the fires, no structures were burned and again it's too early to say whether fireworks were to blame, but would it quite a coincidence if all this happened on july the 4th. >> a lot of fireworks out. fire marshals are trying to determine what the cause of the fires are. obviously that is one of the reasons we try -- we don't have safe and sane fireworks here in the county. they are illegal and that is one of the reasons we're not going to have fires. fires do have a handle on all the fires. they are all contained or even put out and no major damage has been reported.
they have dealt with incredibly huge fires overnight. we are waiting for pictures to come in from brentwood, more fires out there. pictures will be coming into our newsroom any minute. stay with us we'll have more to tell you, a very busy night for fighters. >> oakland's police and fire department tried to stop residents from setting off illegal fireworks last night. city skies were filled with explosives. the oakland fire department hoped the presence of two dozen fire engine woz curtail activity. sporadic booms continued through the night including flourishes of professional grade fireworks. as of late last night, no serious incidents had been reported in oakland but in concord, 4th of july celebrations sent one man to the hospital with what reported to be a traumatic injury to his hand. rescuers are expanding
instead of calling off a search for seven american tourists after a fishing boat capsized in baja, mexico. terry mcsweeney is there with the stories. >> boat suddenly upside-down on off the waters of baja, california. they think some of the seven missing might still be alive because the air and water temperatures are warm. 48 hours later, one american has been confirmed dead but 19 have been rescued. they grabbed on to coolers as they waited up to 16-18 hours to be rescued. take a look at this animation now. a sudden violent storm about 2:30 in the morning, there were hurricane-force winds, a large swell flipped over the boat setting 43 tourists and crew members into the waters. a survivor from san francisco
was interviewed by "good morning america." >> we heard yelling and my brother got up and heard somebody say, get out, get out. a guy was saying, help me, help me. the water is already over his head. >> he was out with three of his brothers, one whom is missing. this is an annual 4th of july fishing trip. initial reports say the search may be called off. instead it's being expanded, saying the operator of the sports fishing boat has had their license suspended. in sonoma county, authorities have recovered the body of a man swept into the russian river. firefighters say she was pushing a woman in an inflatable raft when he slipped off the sandbar and monte rio beach.
the woman was pulled out of the river and firefighters recessed for several hours and found the body. that stretch of the river is dangerous. >> right out of it, through the ripple, it drops off to ten feet so they get swept out and walking around in the shallow water and they fall, current takes themselves right out in the deep stuff and started screaming. >> crews searching for the man rescued four children that were swept out by the strong current. >> bart's board member says she is troubled with what happened in the fatal shooting involving bart police. the police chief officers academy in defense of their lives when they shot a man on a train platform in san francisco. they say when officers approached the suspect she confronted them with a knifepoint within a minute of arriving on the platform, they shot the suspect. one of the officers was cut on
his arm by glass. just about 5:089 on this tuesday morning. hot temperatures ahead of us later on today. starting off cooler. >> we got a little fog in san francisco this morning. >> the sea breeze dropped the temperatures a few degrees. it has moved into deeper parts of the bay area but you can see it's very shallow and be easy to eradicate and back at the coast around 10:00 or 11:00. that will set the stage for a very warm inland afternoon. you can see the winds are not that strong, sfo at 8 miles an hour. 5 in oakland. 6 in half moon bay. livermore, 3. so it's not a strong push like the 20-25 mile-an-hour winds we 0 a typical summer morning. 51 in half moon bay. san francisco, oakland, redwood city in the upper 50s.
everybody else in the 60s. all eyes on the east bay as we flirt with hundred degrees in many neighborhoods with low to mid 90s in the north bay valleys clearlake and ukiah, hundred. 78 in oakland. san francisco, 73. 65 in half moon bay. monterey bay, clouds clinging to monterey, 68. mid to upper 70s in santa cruz and salinas. seven-day forecast, the heat peaks today and it tapers significantly. temperatures back to average by friday and throughout the weekend. good morning, danielle. >> chp has issued a sig alert for an injury crash southbound 101 past highway 92, three left lanes shall blocked. it's pretty early so the back-up is minimal and able to use those right lanes to get past the scene of that crash. let's head on out to berkeley.
live look at 80 at university. those headlights are headed in the westbound direction as you make your way on over to the bay bridge toll plaza where traffic is light. we did have an earlier accident on the upper deck that bridge crews were able to get that off at treasure island. things are looking good. it only took a few years, but vice president joe biden joins the twitter generation. his first tweet. >> and we'll tell you about it. and new research that could ago long way to tell women how often they should get mammograms. >> and who is this skilled pilot showing his stuff. >> you forgot dark. >> it's prince william. >> --ing. ?x?x?x?x?x?x?x?x?x?x?xx [ male announcer ] bring home a complete meal for your family.
company is not commenting on the breach. >> joe biden is going to have work on paring down his words now that he officially on twitter. he is now officially as vp. he says to think of the troops in battle. it will be written by his staff. >> and the shortcuts. >> and most followed user on google plus may surprise you. facebook chief mark zuckerberg has more than 21,000 followers, topping autousers. google plus spokesman says it's easy to explain why the competition is leading, he says he has the most friends in the world. he is has been the subject of a popular movie and he is better
looking than larry. >> there has been debate or how often women should get mammograms. researchers believe they have a city that could help women make the best decisions. carolyn johnson has more. >> reporter: like a lot of women jacqueline had her first mammogram at age 40. she wasn't swayed by a government task force that suggest women don't need breast screening until age 50. >> think they do it early because it's something that if there is anything wrong they catch. >> it a new study by california pacific medical center in san francisco has come down on her side but with a twist. >> we found that how often a woman should have a mammogram depends on her risk of getting breast cancer. there is an area of density, dense tissue. >> the doctor and his colleagues
examined various risk factors including breast density. women with fatty tissue are at higher risk. >> the more tissue, the greater the chance some of the tissues will result in breast cancer. that is probably some of the reason that breast cancer is a strong risk. the denser tissue is visible as more solid looking patches. radiologists can rate the dense it on a scale of one to four and four the highest. >> in order to interpret that kind of information the team issued a key recommendation that women should have a baseline mammogram at the age of 40. >> it can create a screening plan based on woman's physiology and family history. women with higher risk could opt for more mammograms.
we hope that this is widely adopted because it's simple and makes sense. get a mammogram at age 40 to help determine your risk. once you know your risk you can make decisions about whether to continue mammograms. >> he says the system will give patients like jacqueline more power to weigh their options. >> i think as long as they do have statistics to show that it works. she wants to be clear, breast density is only part of the formula. they want to go through her history and whether she had a previous biopsy. not one size fits all. the forecast is going to be what it's going to be. microclimates in effect
