5:00 am
i'm bob redell. live to show you the long line of people waiting for assistance this holiday season. >> good morning to you. i'm meteorologist christina loren. temperatures not as frigid to start the day but we have thick fog out there especially at the coast. we'll tell you when that will clear and i have your weekend forecast coming up in moments. >> that fog is an issue for drivers and also we have two crashes to report. let's take a live look outside san francisco. pretty clear in this shot. it's friday, friday, november 8th, this is "today in the bay." a very good morning to you. thanks for joining us. i'm laura garcia-cannon. >> and i'm jon kelley. good morning to everybody. we want to get you to the breaking news in the philippines, a devastating super typhoon has hit landfall, it happened overnight. about a million people there taking shelter.
5:01 am
they have to fight to survive the wraths of this storm. some are calling this the strongest tropical cyclone to ever hit earth. marla tellez is in the newsroom now covering this. she has all of the latest details. >> good morning. so far at least four people have been killed but we expect that number to rise given the depth of the destruction we are showing you right here. typhoon haiyan is a category 5. the central philippines is bearing the brunt. the popular tourist city of sabo is taking a beating. winds well above 150 miles per hour, gusts between 220 and 230. landslides have wiped out communities, this here that look likes a floating landfill. waves in some areas reaching almost 20 feet. power as you can imagine has been wiped out to millions. locals trying to go to higher ground. this guy has a child under the tarp trying to protect this
5:02 am
child. weather officials say for us here in the states the worst we've dealt with recently is superstorm sandy and this typhoon is far more powerful. >> no one in america can even imagine what 195-mile-per-hour wind would do to their home. this is going to be a bowling ball that rolls right through the southern philippines devastating everything in its path for 20 miles on both sides there won't be a home standing. >> the only positive if there is such a thing is that haiyan is so fast moving meteorologists hope it will all be over soon though it does have its sights set next on vietnam. adding insult to injuries thousand of evacuees endured a 7.2 earthquake last month. they were living in shelters already and now they are dealing with this. also i do want to mention that hundreds of flights have been grounded so if you have travel plans in this region you are going to want to call ahead and brace yourself for change in
5:03 am
terms of flights. >> thank you. so much devastation going on. let's check with our meteorologist tracking this typhoon. it's rough to watch all of these people being displaced. it does not look like it's getting better soon. >> no. in fact, it's still a strong storm, category 3 at this point. when it did make landfall, category 5 winds. category 5 hurricane to give you some reference starts at 155 miles per hour. the strongest sustained speeds from typhoon haiyan, 195 miles per hour. that's a sustained speed, gusting more toward 230 miles per hour. so millions have been impacted so far. millions more will be as we head throughout the week. i want to give you a look at the future track and intensity of this storm. it's a category 3 barreling toward vietnam. about 10:00 p.m. our time as a category two storm. then the system is going to weaken as it makes its way over land but we're going to deal with a powerful area as we head
5:04 am
throughout sunday at 10:00 p.m. moving into china. a large population in that part of the world. what i can tell you is we're not even close to being done tracking this massive storm. but yeah, from a meteorologist perspective i can tell you we've never seen anything like this. back to you. >> something to keep an eye on. thank you very much. it's 5:04. it's also not a typical morning for students at one high school. they are getting ready for classes in a unique way, by wearing skirts. christie smith is live at maybeck high school in berkeley. this is all in support of a classmate who was set on fire while sleeping on a bus. >> reporter: yes. good morning to you. this was a horrible attack really unbelievable. sasha fleishman was intentionally set on fire on a bus while he had a skirt on. classmates here at maybeck high school will do the same, they will wear a skirt or a kilt in
5:05 am
support of their friend and classmate sasha. this is a private small high school in berkeley. sasha's family said that he identified as neither male or female. the 16-year-old suspect, richard thomas, has been charged as an adult with enhancement of a hate crime. his family says he is not a hateful person. thomas is accused of setting fleishman on fire. thomas told police he did that because he was homophobic. outside court his family says he may have been joking and is remorseful and will apologize. >> he's a good kid. >> very good kid. >> i don't know. he was joking around. that's all. >> reporter: sasha fleishman is undergoing skin grafts on his legs and the fundraising website set up to help in his recovery is saying that it's reached its
5:06 am
$20,000 goal with more than $21,000 already this morning. saying they are not accepting more donations but there are also many, many words of encouragement and support. coming up in the next half hour i'm going to tell you what the oakland mayor had to say about this crime. reporting live in berkeley, christie smith, "today in the bay." >> thank you. inspiring hearing all of that support. in the newsroom a minor earthquake just struck off the northern california coast, the 4.7 magnitude quake hit just before 3:00 this morning about 74 miles west of eureka and west of crescent city. we can tell you so far no reports of damage or injury. >> 5:06. people are sleeping out in the cold just for a chance to get holiday help. bob is outside sacred heart community service in san jose. it appears the need is still very strong this holiday season.
5:07 am
>> reporter: you are correct. that is not a good thing. good morning to you, laura. you can see the long line of people out here this early morning waiting to register for the holiday food and toy program. run by the sacred heart community service. in all the agency expects to serve 4,000 families with their poll day food boxes and 16,500 children with christmas toys. what's noteworthy is that those are normal numbers. the same number of people as when the recession began. in other words, even though there has been improvement in the job market they are not seeing it here. not at sacred heart. these people do not have to wait overnight. they have never had to turn anyone away and they don't expect to. the reason why people start waiting since yesterday afternoon is some needed to get a work after registration. starts at 9:00. others don't want to have to wait in line during the day. >> you are a dedicated
5:08 am
grandmother. >> yes, i am. i got a lot of grand kids and great-grandchildren. i don't have a lot of money to buy each one. they help me a lot. >> what would you do without sacred smart. >> i don't know. i come so many years, i enjoy it. my kids enjoy it. >> reporter: sacred heart cites the measure that says that those in poverty, add to the recent cuts in the federal food stamp program and you've got a lot of people who are finds themselves in a desperate situation. reporting live in san jose, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> so wonderful what sacred heart does. >> a heartfelt thank you. christina loren is here to talk about our friday. let's say it again, our friday.
5:09 am
>> good morning to you guys. it is cold out there for everybody who waits in line. at this point of the morning i can tell you it's only going to get colder. 39 in napa. 48 in livermore and 48 in san jose which is pretty chilly especially if you're out doors for any duration of time. make sure you're bundled up. maybe you have an extra coat you haven't worn. good time to donate that to somebody in need. you have no idea how much it can help. golden gate bridge tells the story. the fog is back, for us that means the cooldown is beginning. san jose, you can see for about 3 to 4 miles. you can't make out all of the city lights because of the low clouds. nonetheless they will burn off. mostly between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. after which time we're going to see a sunny finish. 74 degrees in gilroy. we're tracking the showers in the forecast. i'll get to that, i'll let you know what that means for the
5:10 am
weekend plans. right now let's check your drive with mike inouye. >> we have first of all fog drifting around the bay. christina talking about lower visibility. it's changing conditions. so be aware and be ready to hit the brakes. visibility greater than a quarter mile. just the low clouds over the roadway in oakland. we'll look at the maps, 880 moves smoothly. the same area i showed you with the live shot. it's eastbound and the light commute through oakland for 580. you approach seminary. this crash has been in lanes for a bit of time so you may see slowing start to develop, pass the merge off of the freeway. in the south bay a crash at westbound 237 around zanker. not a big deal. no injuries reported. it's in the commute direction so i'll track that. we had reports of highway 87 over or at the off ramp, willow
5:11 am
street, there's a few service areas, car repairs there on highway 87. posted that a pedestrian has been hit. a number of cars stopped. to try to provide help. we have a lot of police in the area. we'll let you know as we get more information, everybody is safe. we also have a crew heading to the scene. close to 280. >> good to know. >> it's 5:11. coming up, a new lawsuit in a high end community where parents say their children were banned from trick-or-treating. >> b.a.r.t. safety comes with side effects. what the agency will be sacrificing to keep workers safe. >> new jobs data on the way. we'll have a preview coming up.
5:12 am
5:13 am
5:14 am
welcome back everyone. it's 5:13 right now. do you have a record player growing up? >> of course. and all sorts. the 45, the big ones. >> there you go. vinyl appears to make a comeback. producers say this year's sales in the united kingdom was the best in decades. >> i love the old school vibe. nothing like putting a record on the player. uk sales have doubled and could grow more by christmas. people over 30 are the biggest buyers, kids, those are the things your parents used to listen to music on. the rock bands bringing in a new generation of fans. >> kind of the record labels thought it would be good to release some of the singles in vinyl form, make them collectible. it was a form of promotion. the fans picked up on it. it's a bit of a badge of honor, around rock 'n roll. >> the classic. companies say vinyls are not
5:15 am
selling like they used to because there is so much in the digital game. they account for 1% of all albums sold in the uk, six years ago it was just .1%. so relatively speaking a surge. >> job numbers won't be pleasant music if anything scott, we're going to may need to hear the needle stick. >> blame congress. they bumped the record player. we get the october jobs report. it's delayed by the government shutdown, probably will show terrible numbers. it will look that bad. enormous spike in employment, politicians so badly messed up the month of october we can probably ignore those numbers. they come at 5:30 our time. twitter will start its first full day of trading. up 72% from its ipo price. remember, earlier this week we talked about how a company wants to find a magic ipo price.
5:16 am
not too big of a payout. that meant the company left money on the table. twitter's was too big of a pop. that's friday morning armchair quarterbacking. that's easy for me to say in retrospect. the broader markets had a tough day thursday. jackie is live at cnbc with a look ahead. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, scott. the futures are higher indicating that we are going to see green on wall street today after stocks fell sharply yesterday. the s&p 500 suffering its worst day in fact, in ten weeks weemt had investors reacting to a surprise interest rate cut by the european central bank. twitter soaring more than 70% in its debut though interesting to note did it close below it's opening of $45 a share. and again today, the big focus this october jobs report. the number is expected to be distorted by the impact of the
5:17 am
government shutdown. forecasts calling for 120,000 jobs to have been added and the unemployment rate to rise to 7.4%. the dow dropping closing at 15,594 t nasdaq to 3857. the nasdaq drop is interesting in light of the twitter pop higher as well. back to you, scott. >> thank you much so. twitter, it was not actually the only bay area company to go public this week. wednesday the guys from care bell's barracuda network raised about $70 million through an ipo. ipos are not the only way the raise money. the jobs act. it allows to solicit investors outside the stock market. the sec gave its blessing a few weeks ago. here is a ceo raising $60 million. >> this conversation that we're having right now, six weeks ago
5:18 am
would have land immediate in jail. the sec, now you don't get to be on a public company, you got toohey owe this very conversation is something i never had in my career before. >> marquette can talk about ieo's. he's my guest on "press: here." a reunion, a guy who was there when waz and jobs walked in carrying a box with their apple computer inside and took it out. >> classic. check out this. >> change the world. >> a lot of the guys went and -- >> exactly. that was the beginning. had a little work to do but it had the seeds. all right, scott love that. >> yeah, love that. love the forecast now. check in with christina. >> looking good for this weekend. we have big changes headed our way and yeah, we like to tech
5:19 am
shop. they offer discounts to students and veterans. that's the kind of thing that gets people throughout and make careers out of what they are doing in school. thanks to them. catch all that, press here, sunday morning. it's not as cold as it has been. we have clouds at the coast. drifting around though. the next couple days we're going to continue to see more and more of that morning cloud cover and as a result our temperatures are going to drop off. i want to give you an idea what if that moo rein layer does to temperatures around the inner bay. i stopped the clock at high noon. still 58 at lunch lime in oakland. 68 at noon in livermore. then the burnoff around the bay and the coast between about 12:00 and 2:00. as a result temperatures end up comfortable but we're going to see really warm temperatures in fairfield, 75 in livermore. low 70s around the inner bay.
5:20 am
the 60s at the coast. so that marine layer gets deeper tomorrow. temperatures will drop off and then our area of somebody comes in. this has been giving all of the meteorologists across the bay area is this going to tap into subtropical moisture, is gotting to ride to the north. our best chance for rain across the greater bay area looks like tuesday into wednesday. what will happen, our temperatures drop off, more soupy conditions and i can tell you it looks promising for showers late tuesday into wednesday. we haven't had rain in some time so that could make for a messy community. nonetheless, mike and i will track it like we are every day. speaking of which let's find out how we're doing in the traffic department. here is mike inouye. >> traffic and weather overlapping quite a bit. overall the bay area not bad. the clear view on our map but we have a lot of areas like this orange here, so the traffic
5:21 am
centers are tied together from our system. we'll talk about the situation a tragedyics situation going on. though the traffic flow is moving we have right here highway 87, i told you about this crash reported. reports of a vehicle having hate pedestrian. we heard that chp closed north 280, south 87 because of what we hear is a fatality. someone has died as a result. we'll get you more information as it comes in. right now the connecteder is closed. we'll loop back and other another issue. the tri-valley moving smoothly. typical out of the altamont pass. the earlier crash eastbound 580 there is no slowing. you see this orange and around the area, dense fog. it's going to be the toughest tear drive as you approach the way bridge toll plaza. we'll show you what we can,
5:22 am
maybe not, we'll hold onto this map. right along the coast. >> we'll do that. thank you. 5:22. b.a.r.t. officials work to update safety prosee durs. there could be fewer trains on the track since two workers were killed last m. employees have kept trains away from work. now looking for other solutions. aft a safety hearing a more permanent solution be do most of the work at night but that might mean less time for trains to be up and running. >> an east bay couple unfairly target their children. the family live in the tennis villas at blackhawk. the family said the homeowners'

5:33 am
number. so i think we've still got to stick with the same idea, right, that this is a nonsense number. but it's an awfully good nonsense number. >> hard to ignore. >> there is a -- going on in washington as we try to figure out what this means. >> exactly. >> we'll continue to delve into it. >> thanks. >> 5:33. this morning students a at bay area high school finding a unique way to show love and support for a classmate set on floor while sleeping on a bus. christie smith is live in berkeley and right now, we're told the students planning to wear skirts and kilts throughout the day. >> reporter: good morning. it was a horrific crime but there really has been an outpouring of support for sasha fleishman who was set on fire on a bus. his family says he has been gender neutral, he doesn't identify as a male or female and often wore a skirt or a kilt. classmates here in berkeley,

5:50 am
i'm talking mostly south of the golden gate bring. we're going to open up that storm window late monday night for areas to the north of the golden gate bridge. showers on tuesday. a better chance for early wednesday for us to get any measurable precipitation. but the mottle runs have not been consistent. it's hard to lock down how much water we're going to get. could see a tenth of an inch to a half inch of rain. we'll take anything we can get. back to you, jon and laura. >> thank you. follow-up on a sad story, she's a bit of a local hero. funeral for the woman after finishing the marathon. it will be held in minnesota. joy johnson the oldest female runner she sadly died hours after this interview on the "today" show. she during the race had fallen and hit her head on the pavement but she refused to quit on sunday and she finished that

barge is a sea worthy vessel. in addition the barge will move around the bay docking for a month at different sites. earlier this week google announced it would be an interactive space where people can learn about technology. >> google's mystery barge. sounds like a hit show. guess what, today's friday that means it's gadget friday. scott, you have your own land barge. >> i do. i drive a ford flex. i think it's one of the best cars, it's huge, though. i can carry most of a baseball team. i spend a lot in gas. now i know it costs me $2.19 to drive to work every day because my iphone tells me. it connects to a device called automatic. we've seen gadgets like this before that plug into the port under the dashboard. automatic call device, a smart driving assistant. here is some of the data it will
5:55 am
push to my iphone. the cost of each trip, whether i drove faster than the optimal gas mileage, if i have engine warning and every time i park the car it mentions the location to my iphone. so when i come back out of the 49ers game or whatever i know exactly where my car is. it's about 100 bucks. no subscription. the only complaint i have is that whole it will beep at you, if you drive faster than optimal gas mileage. if you drive on 85, mike, i think you know this, nobody is driving the optimal gas mileage speed on 85. but it beeps once or twice and gives up. >> interesting. >> good for you and i getting up there in age. i tend to forget things. >> where did we park the car? it cost 4 bucks to take them to the wherever we were going. but there is real money involved. >> no kidding. that's a lesson in itself. morning commute is a tough one.
