5:00 am
i'll let you know when that heat is going to break. your forecast is moments away. we take you live to san francisco, give you a nice shot of that bay bridge, the dwiningaling lights are off this frt friday. that's okay because it's friday, september 6. this is "today in the bay." good morning everybody. thanks for joining us. i'm terry mcsweeney. >> i'm marla tellez. both laura and jon are off. crews in san jose are on the scene of a water main break on pearl avenue between capital expressway and branham. this is across the street from terrell elementary school. bob redell arrived on scene. bob, it looks like you're not alone out there. >> reporter: good morning, marla. the water main is at terrell elementary. that's the school's main water supply. the san jose water company has
5:01 am
shut off the water, as you can see. the question now is will terrell elementary be able to get the water fixed in time for class today. if they're not able to get it fixed in time, will there be class? >> we haven't been able to reach out to the school district and we're not sure if they're aware what happened. you can see the vehicle, the lincoln town car was speeding down pearl avenue. police believe that the driver might have been drunk. that car collided with another car carrier that was trying to cross the street. and when it collided, you can see it came up here onto the sidewalk and knocked out the water main supply. the driver of the car carrier is fine, but there were three people in the lincoln town car. two of them, a man and a won ma, both fled initially. but police found them, and they also had another person. so you had three people in the car, all of them taken to the hospital, non-life-threatening injuries. they are not under arrest. again, this is still early in the investigation.
5:02 am
but still we're trying to figure out whether or not the fact that terrell elementary does not have water right now, now that it's been shut off because of the damage right there to that waterline, whether or not there will be any impact on classes. we're trying to figure that out. i talked to a guy who works for the san jose water company and said how long will it take to fix that? he said it could be roughly four hours, not roughly four hours from now, but it's a four-hour job. once the people come out to start working on it it would be roughly four hours to get that fixed. reporting live at terrell elementary in san jose, bob redell, today in the bay. >> this could be affecting hundreds of students. we'll be checking with you throughout the morning. this morning a san francisco neighborhood is mourning the loss of a mother hit and killed right in front of her baby. this happened at holly park yesterday afternoon. witnesses say a park worker was driving a maintenance truck down the paved path when he suddenly turned onto the line driving right over the woman who was lie manage the grass with her baby
5:03 am
and dog. she died from her injuries. witnesses say the driver kept going even as people yelled at him to stop. police tracked him down just a few minutes later and arrested him for leaving the scene. park goers say workers cutting through the grass at this crowded park is nothing new. >> it's a tragedy, that is them not paying attention, being out of control, doing what they want to do. >> the baby and dog were not hurt. the identity of this driver is not being released. police say he is cooperating with investigators and will be tested for drugs and alcohol. 5:03. we are learning new details about a violent home invasion robbery in san mateo. it's an update to breaking news we first told you about yesterday morning. police say there were three suspects involved in this robbery on lodi avenue near norfolk. police say the three got broke into the home and got into a gun battle. two suspects were shot as well as one person living at the home. the suspects escaped and drove to a hospital in san jose. one suspect died on the way
5:04 am
there. another is still in the hospital today. the third suspect was not hurt and arrested. police say the surviving suspect could face murder and attempted murder charges. southbound interstate 680 in sunol is back open this morning following a big rig fire. the truck erupted into flames last night about 8:00 north of sheridan road. chp says the driver suffered severe burns to his face and hands. he was airlifted to a nearby hospital. the burning fire sparked a small grass fire. the cause of the accident is being investigated. a new pilot program launched today in an effort to deal with budget cuts as a smaller staff to respond to low-level medical calls. the smaller squad will include at least one paramedic and they'll drive an suv instead of a fire engine. that will free up more firefighters and engines for more serious incidents. the new squad will be tested for three months before the district decides whether to make it a

5:06 am
so we don't have to worry about any issues. a smooth flow 101 at 680. the entire south bay region shows a nice easy flow. a blip north or south as you head to the almaden area. only down to 58 or so. north 680 heading up into the same area terry told you about, it's on the newspaper side we saw slowing about 20 minutes ago that has cleared out. no problems and no lanes are blocked, as you said, after that big rig fire, the crash reported, still the incident report south 680 circled around stoneridge. over on the shoulder. no injuries reported and no slowing out of the altamont pass into livermore. here is a beautiful view of the new eastern span. this is the first weekend it's open. so no problems, no slowing right now. but we have seen a slower drive through that area. less cars are getting across the bridge which means big backups. christina, this being a friday, we typically see midday traffic

5:12 am
mathematically possible to crack some of those encryptions. there is some evidence that the government solved that problem by getting to data before it's encrypted. the bottom line here, terry, is the sort of safety mechanisms put in place when you bank online or when hospitals share medical records are not secure. now, it's apparently only the nsa that can read this encrypted data. experts in the field of cryptography point out, once you know how to do something, it's only a matter of time before your enemies figure it out, too. snowden himself sort of a case in point about how long the nsa can keep a secret. he's the one who apparently leaked this and all the other super secret information. remember he was a mid level analyst who didn't even work for the nsa. he was a contractor and he knew. turning to wall street, big day for jobs. seema mody is live at cnbc world headquarters with a preview. >> futures right now mixed this morning after a pretty quiet trading day on wall street.

a crash caused a water main break on pearl avenue and capital expressway. this is terrell elementary. that's where bob redell is right now with the very latest. bob. >> reporter: good morning, terry. you're correct. right now terrell elementary does not have water. the water company turned it off after somebody crashed into their pipeline out front. you can see the damage right there behind me. as far as we know, no one from police nor the water company have notified terrell elementary or the school district because it is so early in the morning. doesn't appear to be any known after-hours phone numbers. it's hard to know what impact this will have on classes. earlier this morning a lincoln town car came speeding down the road. the town car crashed into water equipment located in front of the school. a woman and one man fled after the crash. police found both of them and had all three transported to the hospital. they are expected to be okay.
5:31 am
sjpd is looking into whether the driver had been drinking. no arrests as of yet. the driver by the car carrier not hurt. back out here live. once terrell elementary gets someone out here to fix the tajjed line, the job could take a while. the water company tells us they estimate it looks like about four hours to dig up that concrete, replace and fix that line and then get the water back on. the question is can kids here, if they come here, live without water for four hours. reporting live in san jose, bob redell, "today in the bay." thank you, bob. it is 5:31. we have breaking news. the u.s. labor department has just released the latest job numbers. scott mcgrew has the details live in our newsroom. hot off the press. >> hot off the press and on to the sharpie. plus 169,000 jobs, 7.3% unemployment. we watch the unemployment rate drop another tenth of one percent for month of august. as far as the 169, that's about standard that's what we've been getting
5:32 am
lately. we'll call that a relatively decent job. terry, one of the things we'll be watching for is some of the other data that comes in behind it. where did those jobs come from? where did they not go? those are important little details and the participation rate, how many people are actually looking for those jobs. for now, hot off the press, plus 169, down to 7.3. back to you. >> for a tech guy, sometimes you go low tech, scott. >> sometimes it's the easiest. now to more breaking news. this time in the east bay, fire crews are at the scene of a fire at a used car lot at the corner of paceco boulevard. >> reporter: we just got here a couple minutes ago. i had a chance to speak with firefighters and told me they finally got this really large fire knocked down at a used car lot. what he's telling me, it started at 3:15 this morning. there are actually three buildings on this property.
5:33 am
there's an office, a residence and then the car lot itself. about 3:15 this morning, they started getting calls that the building was on fire. they tell me that when they got here, the flames were so high they were actually touching the power lines about 30 feet in the air. there was concern that those power lines might fall. they say one of the poles was actually leaning. so they had to kind of get in a defensive posture while the building burned because there was a question about firefighter safety with all these power lines arcing up above. they got pg&e ouhere. they were able to cut off the power to this area although we're told some of the residents, most of them still have power. they were able to cut off the power to the building. that's when they were able to get a little closer, spray water on it and finally knock it down. again, there was quite a bit of concern about the collapse of these power lines. they tell me eight cars burned and there was concern that two people were on the property. they haven't personally,
5:34 am
firefighters, made contact with them. they're saying they believe the sheriff's department has made contact with those people and they are okay. they tell me the building here is basically a total loss. right now they're concerned that the roof of the office here which is on the right may collapse. so what they're doing is, they're finally getting a chance to go inside and make sure everything is out. at this point, though, they still don't know exactly what started this fire in the first place. reporting live in martinez, christie smith, "today in the bay." >> christie, thanks very much. 5:34 right now. >> we are heading into the weekend. expect hot temperatures. christina loren, yesterday when i stepped outside it felt like fall was in the air. >> yeah, you can smell it. you know it's a few weeks ago, 16 days, but who's counting? we have a pretty substantial warmup between now and then though. you 49ers fans? you like kaepernick and the
5:35 am
boys. >> number seven, oh, yeah. and his biceps. >> and the way he likes to kiss them. maybe you can do that later. we have the forecast coming up in just a minute. i want to show you how clear it is on the golden gate bridge. temperatures this morning are really comfortable. if you have outdoor activities you need to take care of, maybe watering the lawn, wash your car, the sooner the better, especially inland. it's going to be a scorcher out there. we'll be getting hotter as we head into the weekend. for today, by noon 96 degrees, 85 bay side. near the coast getting a little bit warm. 78 degrees in places like san francisco. speaking of which those 49ers back at it. candlestick park, if you're headed out to this gale, i really want to warn you, you want to be drinking plenty of water and also you've got to bring the clear plastic bags. make sure you have the sunscreen ready to go. 78 degrees at kickoff, 83 by 3:00 p.m. and hopefully after a big 49ers win at 5:00 p.m., 85
5:36 am
degrees. usually you get the swirling winds at the stick, not expecting that as we head through sunday. in fact, it should be rather calm. let's go 49ers, let's go mike inouye. >> all right. let's also remember christina said hydrate with water on the hot days. drinking other stuff, water is important. looking at the bay bridge toll plaza. a lot of coffee in these cars. lining up in the cash lanes. this is a big backup for 5:36 on a friday for the cash lanes off the berkeley curve. we'll watch for that different patterns. this is the first friday this bridge has been open with the new span. we'll look out to the sensors. a little slowing approaching the toll plaza. the berkeley curve moving smoothly. watching 580 as well. over here highway 4, no slowing that shows up winter park through bay point, but eastbound toward antioch and pittsburg, there's a crash reported
5:37 am
blocking one lane. it's not a big deal, but this is a time when pittsburg and bay point start to show the volume build. westbound we have the speeds coming down into the 20s z as is typical even on a friday. it wasn't there about 40 minutes ago. a little later start, but finally kicking in. west 580 shows us slow into livermore down below the upper 50s as well as highway 84. we end with the cross of the bay, the san mateo bridge and foster city. >> just cruising at the little. mike, thanks. 5:37. what do you get when you pair a 9-year-old girl and a cute horned puffin. >> you get a viral video. dakota wood is featured in this video shot by her mother at the monterey bay aquarium. for 49 seconds dakota runs around with the puffin.
