looking at the transamerican pyramid for halloween. i'm kris sanchez. thanks so much for joining us on "today in the bay." craig herrera is here with a look at the forecast. >> i like halloween. that's my favorite time of the year. you have the halloween movies going. 52, san francisco. factor in some of the windchill and humidity. it feels cooler than that. some 40s for the north end of the bay. you know the fog is back. it is strong. it is going to cool us off today. we have really enjoyed a lot of warmer weather this last week as we go through the weekend. things have all changed. by noon, we are sitting with some 70s in spots and a couple

we all know the gas meters are right attached to the house. counting their lucky stars in east san jose. we are also following developing news from the site of another mine disaster. 21 coal miners are dead and 16 more trapped underground in central china after an early morning explosion at a state-owned mind. state work safety administrators say it is too early to tell right now how far underground those workers are trapped or what sparked that explosion. so far, rescue crews got to 239 mine workers and they are now safe. the explosion comes just days after china announced it closed more than 1300 coal mines this year in an effort to improve safety standards. 11,000 small coal mines still operate in that country. china is the world's largest producer and consumer of coal. the rapist next door. an east bay man is accused of raping a woman at the the apartment complex he, himself,
calls home. this is the second in a series of attack at the park regency complex in walnut creek. will there may still be in danger. this morning, security officers continue to check every car driving into and out of that apartment complex. the county sheriff deputies arrested 51-year-old william yokum in connection with a sexual assault that happened last month. another man was arrested in august in connection with three other attacks. neighbors say the latest arrest puts them at ease but only somewhat. >> i'm feeling more secure knowing that the law enforcement are doing what they need to do and that management might be taking care of the problem a little bit better than they say they were. >> take a look at this sketch. the sketch of a third man detectives twoont talk to about an attack that happened at the complex a couple of weeks ago. in that assault, the victim says she fought the attacker off after he tried to put her in her
apartment. still reason to be careful in walnut creek. this morning, a south bay man suspected of committing lewd acts against a child is being held on $1 million bail. officers say 40-year-old john keith wilson's alleged victim is under the age of 40. the detectives say they arrested wilson without incident because of an anonymous tip. detectives served search warrants at his home in los altos and another home in cal gar ras county. police won't say what they found. we checked the database. wilson does not appear to be on it. you can always check megan'slaw.ca.org. a south bay marijuana dispensary is facing charges by illegally making noin by providing marijuana to sick patients. the angel's cooperative is shut
down this morning. agents from the santa clara county special enforcement team seized about 100 pounds of pot after two freezers full of marijuana edibles yesterday. they reportedly froze a $75,000 bank account linked to the dispensary. marijuana clubs are required to be nonprofit agencies under state law. this is the third task force raid in santa clara county within the past few weeks. some speculate this is the way the federal government may choose to deal with medical marijuana in california. if you see teams of officers storming into bay area buildings with guns drawn, don't worry. it is likely part of a large anti-terrorism drill called urban shield. good thing to know about that one. from the transamerican pyramid in san francisco to livermore, hundreds of officers will practice ways to save hostages during locked terror attacks. bay area police department, the fbi and special police forces from jordan, israel and bahrain
