5:00 am
>> little sunshine for most of us, especially inland. sea breeze out there, the winds gusting to 33 in fairfield, but they won't be as fast as they were yesterday, nor will they be in as many neighborhoods, so that's why we're going to warm up more and see sunshine quicker. 12-hour day planner, cooler than yesterday morning. staying in the upper 50s at the coast. in the middle there you can see the bay 69 at noon to 74, back to 69 by 7:00. 74, 80, and 72 for our inland neighborhoods from noon to 4:00 to 7:00. it is going to get warmer, some 90s coming up in the seven-day forecast. how about the commute? >> nothing too crazy yet this morning. very light volumes through the south bay so far this morning. no blocking incidents to talk about. just starting to see our typical slow spots filling in. down to about 22 miles an hour and we do have a high wind advisory for altimont pass. i checked with mike, he said the
5:01 am
gusts probably around 25 miles an hour for you, so if you're going to be driving a truck, a high profile vehicle this morning, just a good day to have both hands on the wheel. a look at drive times coming up next. >> thank you. san francisco landlords may face tougher rules when it comes to evicting tenants because of phony owner move-ins. the new proposal requires landlords to swear under oath they or a relative will live in that unit that is vacated following an eviction. the updated law now heads to mayor ed lee, who has the power to veto it. new details in the shakeup at uber, the former ceo can count on the support of at least one big name in silicon valley following his resignation, former yahoo! ceo coming to his defense suggesting kalanick was unaware of the toxic environment

because of rapid growth. mayer made the remarks at stanford yesterday saying, "i don't think he knew. when your company scales that quickly, it's hard." she then compared uber's situation to the early days of google when it first brought in eric schmidt as ceo to help cofounders brinn and page to manage the company. construction on building prototypes for president trump's planned border wall expected to begin this summer and four to eight companies will be getting contracts to build the prototypes, but those contractors may not be from california, and that's because a bill has passed the state senate, and it would prevent california from contracting with businesses that bid on the border wall. so democratic lawmakers say the wall demeans and alienates illegal residents, that's why they are doing this. republicans say this bill could cost californians tens of thousands of jobs. this morning the senate republican health care plan is heading for a complete overhaul.
5:03 am
yesterday president trump huddled with more than 40 senate republicans at the white house. he was unable to sway at least nine who say they oppose the plan in its current form. republicans will now work on a new version and try again after the fourth of july recess. this morning on "good morning america," john carl said this is exposed the limits of the president's influence over the republican senators. >> there are limits to what he can do. the bottom line is, this president does not have deep relationships with republican senators. he doesn't have much influence with them. in fact, the senator that he is perhaps closest to of all of them is rand paul, who you remember he ridiculed during the primaries and who right now looks like the republican most steadfastly opposed to this bill. >> and you can watch the rest of john carl's analysis on "good morning america," which starts at 7:00 here on abc 7. happening today, fireworks stands are opening up in some bay area cities with the fourth of july only a few days away,

5:05 am
community. take a photo or audio clip, time and location, and the report will be submitted to the appropriate authorities. safer and sane fireworks go on sale in a handful of cities like petaluma, pacifica, san bruno, and, of course, here in dublin today. live in dublin, tiffany wilson, abc 7 news. >> thank you. the safest way to watch fireworks is at a sponsored event, so abc 7 has you covered. head to our website, you'll get a full list of festivals, parades, and fireworks. prepare to shell out a lot more money in palo alto. the city approved a big hike in the cost of parking permits. yearly permits will jump from $149 to $365. that is more than double. downtown permits will go from $466 to $730. that's up 60%. palo alto will give the extra money to a nonprofit to help companies buy transit passes for
5:06 am
employees. the upside, parking is still free for the first two hours. we're learning more about oakland's plan to turn an old hotel into a homeless shelter. it's a story we told you about yesterday here on abc 7 mornings. abc 7 news reporter lonnie rivera has more. >> reporter: drive near a highway underpass in oakland, you're sure to see homeless tents lined up. it's what shaun passes every day. >> sometimes i get here in the morning and i hear from some of the guys, you know, oh, somebody got hit by a car or they overdosed. it's just, you know, you kind of start to become part of their community, and we're all one community. >> reporter: a community with a serious housing crisis. given oakland's growing homeless population, city leaders are committing $14 million to purchase another hotel similar to this one to provide transitional housing for the homeless. >> some of them may be single rooms, some of them may have efficiencies. >> reporter: the city is already receiving calls from hotel
5:07 am
owners and realtors with potential properties. the transitional center would include job placement and drug rehabilitation. >> i know there's enough room, there's enough shelter for everyone, and everyone deserves it. >> reporter: an infrastructure already approved by oakland taxpayers in november. >> we're going through a housing crisis and individuals are willing to pay more on their taxes to help with that crisis. >> reporter: oakland city council still has one final session to approve selling the bonds, then purchasing an existing hotel could happen in the next several months. in oakland, lonnie rivera, abc 7 news. well, bart says everything is okay after receiving multiple reports that a person had a gun at the west oakland station. you may have noticed this yesterday around 8:00 last night. bart had sent out a tweet and when bart police arrived there, they say that person was gone. as a precaution, though, several trains had to run through that station without stopping.

5:09 am
it started on monday. it also destroyed a ranch owned by actor johnny galecki. you probably know him from "the big bang theory" or "rosanne." in a statement he thanked the fire crews for their hard work in battling the fires. the hill fire is 60% contained. neighbors also dealing with wild fires, this one is in arizona. it has 18,000 acres already scorched since saturday. it's burning near prescott. winds are a concern here, as well. firefighters say it's also similar to the problem in marin that reggie just mentioned a moment ago, because part of this area has not burned in decades either. this one just 1% contained. now your accu weather forecast with mike nicco. >> all right, san francisco, let's start with you. 54 to about 56 degrees. a very comfortable and cool morning out there with a little drizzle near the coast. all of us in the mid to upper 50s. palo alto 54, daly city at 52.

5:41 am
i'm wondering if that was a contributing factor to our crash behind it involving a motorcycle that hit a smaller sedan. that is down in the far left lane. so two lanes blocked and the backup continues to grow out of tracy. nine miles an hour, 15 miles an hour, that one's pretty tough. quick check of drive times westbound highway 4 to the maze, 18 minutes, about 17 across the bay bridge. that still bouncing back from an earlier disabled vehicle and southbound 101 san francisco to sfo looks great at nine minutes. one issue in dublin, that next. a road rage incident escalates quickly and that retaliation caught on camera. retaliation caught on camera. plus,
