nile virus. over the last decade, more than 4,000 californians have been diagnosed with it, last year alone there were 379 cases, 15 of those cases were deadly. a developing story now. a worker falls to his death at a construction site on the peninsula. this happened just before 4:00 at the old race track in san mat mateo. the worker fell around 15 feet. construction crews are transforming the old race track into condos and houses. no word yet on what may have caused that accident. investigators are now on site, and we'll have more on the story as soon as we get it for you. let's take you outside and talk about the chance of lightning. it's on its way. here's a live picture now above the foothills of east san jose. you can see the clouds gathering. those clouds could produce lightning, and there's already plenty of action in the sierra. take a look. snow in lake tahoe.
6:03 pm
this is mid may and right near heavenly valley on the south shore. let's bring in jeff ranieri who's tracking all of this activity. >> the thing that we're looking at is we're not seeing a great risk of lightning. there's just a slim possibility and even a 20% to 30% chance across the bay area is good enough for us to mention that risk. the storm system producing it is currently centered across lake tahoe. as that gets closer tonight we could see things shift. but across the sierra, check out the totals. 4 to 5 inches across the higher elevations right near 7,000 to 8,000 feet. we've gt these yellow arrows on here. that's where the circulation of this storm system could still funnel some activity down toward san jose, also portions of the north bay as we continue throughout tonight. the risk is slight, but, again, we may see some isolated lightning as we head throughout

6:05 pm
on fire. it's unnerving to watch. and for the father who lives in that home, it is infuriating. >> i'm angry, very angry. >> reporter: he was home with his five teenagers when his daughter heard a popping sound. they saw the suv engulfed in flames. they tried to put it out with a fire extinguisher and hose. his daughter called 911. >> yes, it could have burned the house down. as you saw from the footage, palm trees got, you know, burned as well. >> reporter: as you can see in the footage, the palm trees were really close. the trees got singed on the flames and about $10,000 of damage to the garage too. but perhaps even more frightening is why he put that surveillance system up in the first place. he says someone is terrorizing his family. three times in the last six weeks someone's vandalized their
6:06 pm
cars. in this picture they're throwing paint and a paint can at the suv. they're hoping the police will track down these suspects and he thinks the public can help. >> if you know anything, this will help get this guy behind bars. >> reporter: san jose fire investigators say that the video evidence is very good and could help them solve this crime very quickly. and that's without enhancing it, which we know when they have the technology to do. the father of five hopes that someone will see something in that video that will lead police to an arrest. in san jose, kris sanchez, nbc bay area news. a live look inside san jose city council meeting tonight where leaders are debating the fate of pot dispensariedispensa. the idea would be to create a buffer zone around day cares and schools. pot club advocates are angry

6:08 pm
only one that we visited had the current report posted. the report shows how the restaurant scored from excellent to poor along with major violations that could affect your health. the grand jury recommends developing a program that would require restaurants to display results with window placards and fine them if it's not up. they also found some information online was inaccurate. the director tells us the department is working on improving it and looking at the possibility of a placarding system. the board of super visors has received copies of this report and has until august 19 to respond to the allegations. bitcoin getting a higher political profile from gavin newsom. as mayor of san francisco you may remember he opened the door to same-sex marriage back in 2008, performing the first ceremony himself. now as he runs for lieutenant

6:17 pm
obtained by the nbc bay area investigative unit. it shows in 2011, the set point was raised to 8.5. its original level in 2008 was 6. andrews says that dramatically lowered how much radiation the monitors would detect. >> they're trying to get dirt out that's contaminated that should never have left hunters point shipyard. >> reporter: andrews began documenting major problems she witnessed and shared with us her personal logbook that tracked the trucks leaving the site. >> there was 17, 20, 12 a day that never passed the monitor. >> reporter: they witnessed other questionable behavior. they took their concerns all the way up to the nuclear regulatory commission and submitted 30 complaints between them to the nrc. >> what i was told in hunters

6:34 pm
ground. >> if more campuses are able to do this elsewhere in the nation hopefully people will start following suit. >> reporter: now stanford easily has the highest profile of those who have recently decided to divest from coal, but are they really going to be coal free? they say they will not make direct investment in coal companies. >> i think it's a symbolic gesture. >> reporter: he says the university is still benefitting from coal in other ways. like, say, in the many building and construction projects popping up all over campus. >> we use many products derived from coal, steel, cement which goes into the buildings is produced from low-cost electricity which is likely to have been row deuced from coal. >> reporter: this divestment only focuses on coal for energy,
6:35 pm
not steel production or any other by-product, but it says that coal energy has the biggest footprint of fossil fuels. >> i do think it is a step in the right decision. the nation needs to start moving away from other coal-based products. >> hopefully they'll be able to use energy for building buildings that does not involve coal-produced energy. >> i thought it was an actionable or big step in the right direction. >> reporter: they called for the university to freeze investment in things harmful. they picked coal. coal stocks have plummeted in the last two years while shale and natural gas are exploding. maybe the university is

cloud cover for all of the bay area. right around 6:00, 7:00, check out the fog at the immediate coastli coastline. we head throughout the afternoon and we expect mostly sunny skies through the interior valleys. along the coastline that fog is going to stay put so do expect the cooler weather there. but the overall trend for the next two days, you see that system move on out. high pressure builds on in. it's going to bring sunny skies, temperatures 10 to 15 degrees above what we had today. it's going to help elevate our fire threat, and it's going to remain gusty at the coastline. it will stay partly cloudy at the south bay. san jose looking for a high of 76. right about where it should be for this time of the year. looking good here in the south bay. 77 in morgan hill. for the peninsula, also warmer, close to 80 degrees in palo
