6:18 pm
>> those have all been mitigated and we're waiting for the test results from the psc which will confirm our efforts have been successful. >> reporter: oakland public schools also went through the same kind of testing and now that district has decided to adopt a lower lead limits than what is required by the state and federal government. and so oakland's goal is to never exceed five parts per billion, and that is exactly the federal limit for bottled water. in san francisco, lyanne melendez, "abc 7 news." >> interesting. thanks very much. all right. it is time to check on our weather today. >> we of course have been tracking hurricane michael, and our local forecast as well. spencer christian is back. >> we will start with the local forecast right now. we have mainly sunny skies still over the bay and our land areas, but fog is developing along the coastline, beginning the make a bit of a push over the bay right now. this is a spectacular view of the setting sun from our east bay his camera.

millibars. the lower the number is, the stronger the storms. records go back to 1851, so a very long time. it is the first and only category 4 landfall in the panhandle of florida has ever seen. it was the warm waters of the gulf and the calm conditions that allowed the storm to quickly intensify. it was a monster. >> so quickly. >> 48 hours it went from a tropical storm to category 4 storm. that's quick. >> all right. thanks, drew. >> yeah. the dow jones plunged more than 800 points today. it is the worst drop in eight months. sharp declines in technology stocks led the way. >> the dow dropped 831 points total. the s&p 500, the benchmark for many index funds, lost nearly 100 points, more than 3%. the nasdaq dropped more than 300 point, equal to a loss of 4%. >> some silicon valley giants fared well. apple as well as app pta bet lost 4.6% value each. each. e

when you or your love one need it. (music throughout) a loud explosion in an early woman shocked a campbell woman out of a deep sleep. >> sure did.
6:44 pm
she was more startled when she learned it was her tv stand that exploded. >> eventually after months of frustration, trying to get a refund, she turned to "7 on your side" michael finney for help. >> so weird. >> it is odd. most of us would not expect a glass shelf to shatter spontaneously, but that's what happened and on of all days 4th of july. the top shelf of carla turner's television stand is no longer there. she recalls the night it shattered into seemingly thousands of little pieces. >> not only did we hear it, but our neighbors across the street heard it and our neighbors on either side heard it. >> reporter: she said she assumed something hit the side of the house. when she didn't find anything there, she went back to sleep. the next morning she discovered glass all over her living room. >> it was under everything. it was under all of the couches, all of the chairs. it was -- like i said, even today when i clean, sometimes i
6:45 pm
will find a piece or twof it. >> reporter: this isn't the first time something like this has happened. in 2011, we reported that a sun roof of a vehicle shattered spontaneously, sending glass fragments on top of a san jose woman's head. then in 2013, we told you about the shower door that exploded without warning at a south bay home. all three times the incidents involved tempered glass. carl carla asked us for help getting answers. we contacted wayland furniture, the manufacturinger of the tv stand. the spokesperson told us tempered glass is meant to track tour into tiny pieces because they're less likely to call injury. he called sus incidents rare but speculated it could have been caused by overloading or tension on the shelf. carla says there was no warning anything like this could happen. >> i never saw anything wrong. it was just like spontaneous combustion.
6:46 pm
>> reporter: she tried for months to get a refund for her tv stand which she bought four years ago. after we contacted wayland, it agreed. it told us the incident with ms. turner is very unfortunate and we're thankful that no one was hurt. >> michael finney is amazing, and "7 on your side" is amazing. i mean i just -- i watch it every night. >> look how smart she is. thank you, carla. that's very nice. we really appreciate it. i want to hear from you. the "7 on your side" hotline is open monday through friday from 10:00 a.m. till 2:00 p.m. my number is 415-954-8151. you can also reach me on my facebook page and through "abc 7 news." >> good work. >> thank you, michael. hurricane michael is spinning across the southeastern united states right now. when it made landfall this morning, abc news broke into regular programming to provide live coverage. >> check out this segment where a house was ripped off its
6:47 pm
foundation. >> my heart is racing. i have never again, george, seen something like an entire home, a well-built home rolling down the street, exempt we made this 3d graphic to explain to people after sandy happened what storm surge does to a structure, what it can do to your home and how quickly it can come in. we just watched it happen in real-time. i will tell you right now, it makes you shake. >> i can hear it in your voice. it is just staggering. >> spencer joins us now because spencer has, of course, been in many hurricanes. >> i have as well on the east coast and their terrifying. >> they are terrifying and so many aspects about this one defy conventional wisdom. generally they weaken over land because of the friction of moving over land, encountering trees, hills, mountains or buildings. this one maintained its strength for hours after making landfall. it will be studied for a long time by hurricane experts.
6:48 pm
overnight we will see increasing clouds, low clouds from the bay moving inland. tomorrow we will see mainly sunny skies by afternoon. we will see lingering clouds in the morning hours. afternoon highs range from low 60s at the cost to around 70 near the bay and mid an upper 70s inland, and the accuweather seven day forecast looks like this. a big warm-up coming our way beginning on friday, especially over the weekend. we will see highs at almost summer-like levels inland and around the bay and on the coast, and temperatures are only going to gradually taper off going into next week. >> spencer, we were talking. you were saying experts are so confounded by hurricane michael that it may become the prototype for the new storms. >> oh, it could be. as warmer global atmosphere conditions persist and warmer ocean temperatures, we'll see likely more storms, more frequent storms, more intense storms, more erratic storms and storms of greater duration. >> that don't die off so quickly
6:49 pm
when they hit lantd. that was so strange. >> that was remarkable. i don't know if we will see another behave that way for a long time, but we will watch for it. >> thank you, spencer. on to sports. a lot to talk about tonight. >> larry has it all for us. >> you are talking what might be the new normal. this is the new normal. get ready for this for the next fewiers, warriors and the west fewiers, warriors and the west coast rivals, california's public schools rank 44th in the nation. 44th. i'm marshall tuck, i'm a public-school parent, and i know we can do better. in the public schools i led, we got more funding into our classrooms, supported our teachers, and we raised graduation rates by 60%. that's why president obama's education secretary endorses me. we've done it before. now, let's do it for every public-school student in california. i'm marshall tuck. i'm running for state superintendent.

fe now abc 7 sportsd wi with l beil. >> the warriors get their first look at lebron james in a lakers uniform in vegas tonight. only a preseason game, but it will be fun to see the rivalry with james. they're going to meet at t-mobile arena in vegas. lakers have been largely irrelevant for the last few years. that changes with james. lebron to l.a. adds spice to this rivalry. >> i think it ramps up because it is a rivalry between nor cal and so cal and there's talent on both teams. but i don't think it will be at the level of us and the cavs because we play each other at the highest level for four straight years. >> it is cool for lakers fans and west coast fans to see lebron on the west side. coach basketball here, especially in l.a., i been down on the coast, so pretty fun. >> there's an extra sentiment there, so to see -- it doesn't
6:53 pm
mean i cheer for them, but, you know, it is just -- that was my team growing up, so they've always had a lot of star power. >> kevin durant gets crushed on social media all the time. he still has a sense of humor about it. reacting to this post on bar stools sports of a giant snake on a golf course. his reaction, my bad, let me get out of your way. a lot of people still call him a name. you a name! for leaving okc for the warriors. durant jumping in on that. jimmy butler demanded ara before training camp. the team has yet to make a deal. it is hard to get value back for him. so he showed up at practice today, just dominated everybody, curse it out a whole bunch of people including the coach, who is also the gm, and then he sat down more calmly with espn's rachel nichols. >> i love the game and i don't it for any other reason except to compete and go up against the best to try to prove that i can hang. all of my emotion came out at one time. was it the right way to do it?
6:54 pm
no, but i can't control that when i'm out there competing. like that's my love of the game. that's raw me. me at my finest, me at my purest. that's what you're going to get inside the lines. >> when i yell in the newsroom, that's me at my finest and my purest. it is my passion for tv. nothing to do with management. the raiders will fly to oakland to take on the seahawks, but today at home their focus was on their car troubles, and they got plenty of them. this season derek carr has thrown a league high three picks into the end zone. entering this year he had four, four picks in the end zone in his entire four-year career. jon gruden is supposed to be the quarterback whisperer. it is not working. meanwhile, offensive coordinator greg olsen thinks carr is pressing. >> last week obviously first and goal at that point, there's no need to press to try to make a play in that situation. some of the turnovers he has had this year, he's been pressing, trying to make a play. we like that part about him, that he is a competitive guy and he wants to make every play. just making better decisions
6:55 pm
here moving forward. >> just give it to marshawn on the one. big honor for one of our friend at sonoma raceway. their president and gm steve paige, one of the three finalists for the 2018 comcast nascar community champion of the year award. paige, whose family was evacuated in the sonoma fires, sprang into action. he opened up the raceway, hosting more than 100 residents displaced by the fires, also spearheading a fundraiser that raised $72,000 to help the victims of the fires. so hopefully steve will win that award. he's going up against a couple of drivers, so a little bit tough in terms of notoriety and stuff. >> good for him. >> outstanding work in the community for sure. draymond green not going the play tonight for the warriors. his knee is ailing, but precautionary. >> thanks, larry. developing all news, all lanes on the dumbarton bridge is open. a crash between a charter bus and large truck around 2:00 p.m. shut down two of the east bay lanes and caused a big backup.
6:56 pm
it is still slow on the bridge and extending along 101 on the peninsula, but with any luck it will get moving now. >> join us on kofi tv 13. jackpots up for grabs tonight, winning both with $839 million in your pocket. the chance of that happening at 9:00. >> let's win both. on news at 11, we get a frightening firsthand look at the haunting experience in downtown san francisco. we promise it will be fun. >> starting at wr78, catch "the goldbergs" "the american housewife" and "modern family." stay with us for "abc 7 news" at 11:00. at 11:35 it is "jimmy kimmel live." of course. tonight's guest are jamie lee curtis and olivia hamilton. be sure to tune in. >> watch for breaking news any time on the "abc 7 news" app. i'm all. >> i'm dan ashley. for all of us, we appreciate your time. we will see you again at 9:00 and 11:00.
