6:04 am
released a statement to bay city news group the correctional deputies were responding to the actions of a seemingly coordinated mass disturbance. i read that to be a prison riot. now, between the time that we received the information from that filing attorney and this morning, we have not been able to independently confirm these details. we are working on that and we will be at that press conference scheduled for 11:00 this morning. sam and laura. >> more to come on that federal complaint. thank you very much, kris. s, meantime, they resume their search for a bay area tech worker last seen at a local lake on friday. bob redell joining us live in livermore. bob, co-workers say the man didn't make it to shore and no one was wearing life jackets at the time either. >> and, sam, that's why for the past four days the east bay regional parks district has been searching lake del valle looking for this man.

6:15 am
internet data is traded between europe and the united states. this case revolves around the safe harbor agreement which allows u.s. firms to collect. should be protected from u.s.-based naul firms. the european court of justices is the highest court in europe today ruled that safe harbor by itself is not enough to allow european's personal information to be shared with u.s. companies. now, scott mcgrew come continues our coverage. >> this could be a huge headache for american companies. >> a really big one. the kid in austria you're talking about knows he is using an american site, right, facebook. he wants his facebook data to stay in europe. right now what happens under that safe harbor law you were talking about is that it saves the information and once it's in m menlo park even if the data is in california. this law covers all kinds of companies.
6:16 am
you take a picture with your i in paris and it's probably going to be stored on an icloud computer in cupertino, again, protected under european law and standards of privacy. take one in san francisco, you're subject to american privacy standards. those are much lower. the courts in europe have said it's forcing european law even on american computers isn't good enough. data from europe has to stay in europe. so, if you're a facebook or apple or netflix or google user, you're going to have to keep it in europe and that means those companies are going to have to build a lot more server farms over here. speaking of rules, the faa is reminding you not to fly your drone anywhere near fleet week when the blue angels are flying. you can imagine someone thinking, great video. you can also imagine how that would go very wrong. let's go back to the map. the fas says no flying of anything. planes, drones, whatever centering around a certain point and the pilots know all about it. but it's stemming all the way through the san francisco water

6:18 am
waiting on that phone. filet mignon on a paper plate. that could be the reality for restaurants in the coastal city of fort bragg under tough new water restrictions. fort bragg declared a water emergency last week. under the new rules, residents cannot water their lawns or landscaping at all and restaurants and hotels must use disposable plates, cups, flatware to try to cut back on dishwashing. fort bragg says it is a primary water source. the river has gotten so low that ocean water started seeping into the pipes. >> more of the landfills, right? >> i think you're addressing one problem but potentially creating another one and make sure they recycle. >> all right, i am calling a water drought emergency. >> maybe a good day for a picnic. >> yeah, i think so. that is a great idea, especially when the temperatures are this comfertile. start out with some clouds
6:19 am

6:21 am
a stall just north of the camera. i zoomed it out and i could not find the stall but look at the sensors. our story where things jam up and then it clears up, again. but the build is on and the slowing starts back now at capital expressway. 87 also starts to have a little dip in those speedometers there. an earlier crash looks like it is out of lanes and more traffic in the dublin interchange and this is your typical pattern. you expect that for a tuesday. really kicking in now. things are still recovering south of marina down out of oakland and in towards hayward and also the bay bridge toll plaza continues to build. a crash over in concord at highway 4 and that could slow things down. i'll get more details and, again, this slowing right here. we'll give the live looks from the coliseum. south 880 and down to about marina. the earlier crash still has a big rig on the shoulder and that's a distraction and that has folks tapping the brake. back to you. >> thanks, mike. coming up next, from the

6:41 am
south of 2 and that's slowing down the transition and getting there is a tougher now out of oakland and that distraction will slow you north coming out of union city, for example. that is the worst of the slowing over in the east bay and on the nimitz side of the san mateo bridge. the peninsula side hasn't seen any slowing just yet. same thing for dumbarto bridge. northbound 101 at capital expressway and those are the two worst slows that we've seen cropping up over the last few minutes and the volume kicks in for san jose freeways heading north. over here, highway 4, a number of crashes through concord and walnut creek and look like they're clearing to the shoulder and slow down the east shore freeway and out of the maze, as well. the peninsula side just fine and we're looking at a nice north bay build and back to you. >> a lot like that. thanks a lot. coming up, california moves one big step closer to closing that pay gap between men and women. volkswagen warns a huge pay cuts. the markets try to move a bit higher this morning.
