11:02 am
valley company is holding its own earthquake drill for employees and residents of sunnyvale. >> bob redell is live at the amd headquarters. i guess there's a simulator trying to mimic for people who an earthquake would be like. good morning. >> reporter: sam and laura, what makes earthquakes most dangerous, they're the type of disaster you never know when they're going to strike. speak of the devil, holy cow. i think we've got a magnitude 8 here. we're in a shake house on the amd campus. i've got teresa chavez here running the earthquake awareness. wow, i think we survived. i'm okay. are you okay? >> i'm good. >> we stopped, dropped. i think we're feeling an aftershock. what's the message you're trying to get out to your employees. >> as we know, earthquakes can strike at any time so it's important to be prepared and know what to do. the biggest misperception is that you would get into a doorway. really what you want to do is do what we did, get on the floor, hands and knees, cover your head
11:03 am
and neck with your hands and cover as best as you can. >> you did an earthquake drill for your employees yesterday here at headquarters. was there any surprises or anything that you think they didn't know about but know about now? >> definitely the doorways and make sure you get under your desk. another thing is if you're walking and can't get to a desk or a table, get to a low table, take cover and hold on. >> sam and laura, i want you to look at video we shot earlier. the san mateo county health system is holding its own disaster training drill this morning. you're looking at the community emergency response teams deploying to a neighborhood in menlo park. these groups are volunteers will do welfare checks on silt zens during a major event like an earthquake. for the first time they have technology to receive live video from each team. what makes this technology
11:04 am
unique, it runs solely on a system of ham radios. that way they don't have to rely on cell technology which could easily go down during a major earthquake. >> we can give them video feeds of a collapsed building and they can make an assessment, is that a high priority or low priority. it's much better than a verbal report because a verbal report tends to be ambiguous. you can send a picture of the building that's collapsed. >> not only are they doing training, they're killing two birds with one stone. they were handing out pamphlets to the residents on the peninsula to remind them about the dangers of standing water, mosquitos and diseases. my lord, we have another magnitude 8. we're going to stop, drop and cover. if this ever happens, which it will eventually, be sure you're prepared.

11:07 am
opportunity we had tonight. hopefully that will continue. >> reporter: continue in round one against the houston rockets. tickets for saturday's game range from $200 to $7,000. those top-notch ones go to these five courtside seats or you can split the difference and try for behind the scorer's table at $3,000 apiece. nothing new for warriors fans who paid a pretty penny. >> more than face value, which might be illegal in the state of california, i'm not sure. >> reporter: was it more than $1,000? >> yes. >> reporter: more than $2,000? >> that's all i'm going to say. >> reporter: it's been a long year for the dubs and its fans. to clinching a title of league champs last season. still, there are the doubters. with dub nation rocking oracle and bars across the bay, the warriors know they have the real strength in numbers to win it again. >> thanks to all the fans for

11:09 am
it. the dubs stand alone noeft wins in a single season. >> so best record in a regular season. now their focus turns to that championship run. we'll stay with the warriors every step of the way. as stephanie just mentioned, the first round is the houston rockets. that starts on saturday night. for more information and all kinds of pictures from this historic season, you can go to from raining threes to rain in our forecast, it has moved on after a rather wet morning and overnight. getting a new look at the snowpack in the sierra. nasa just released these satellite photos. you can see the snowpack is still there. let's go out live to downtown san francisco this morning. clouds hovering in the distance there. meteorologist kari hall has more on the changes coming our way. a warmup in fact by the weekend. >> yes, laura, a lot of changes the way. i just tweeted out the national weather service new snowfall totals for the sierra. some spots like sierra tahoe got up to 4 inches as we had some
11:10 am
light rain in the bay area earlier this morning. we see the clouds are starting to roll back in. here's that weather system that is still spinning farther off to the north and producing some rain and snow farther to the north of us, but for us we'll have a chance to dry out with some breezy winds and temperatures will be in the upper 50s along the coast, mid-60s for those inland areas like gilroy, 65 degrees, 66 in fairfield and oakland today up to 63 degrees. we'll take a look at the forecast with some major changes again this weekend. that's coming up a little bit later. >> kari, thank you very much. all new at 11:00, a body is pulled from the water. now police are investigating. san francisco police say they were called by the coast guard to help in recovering this body. it happened around 6:30 right near the ferry building. the body is now with the coroner's office. when we have more information, we'll bring it to you. a murder suspect is on the loose and police say he is armed and dangerous. officers say they were looking for 28-year-old kyle matthew

11:15 am
a large crowd is expected in oakland later this afternoon. now to an investigative unit exclusive. what one school might consider childish misbehavior can be treated like an actual crime at another school across town. >> our investigation last year revealed certain schools across the bay area called police on their students a lot more than you might think and the reasons they're being called have some parents furious. tonight we continue the series looking at why parents are accusing a school district of unfairly criminalizing kids. that district pays police officers to patrol some of their campuses, which is common. but we discovered there's no written policy detailing when or how the school should involve those officers. while some students are getting criminal records for their bad behavior, the school district says that's not their problem. >> i'm not saying that my son should not have been disciplined. i'm upset that they're taking it to a new level.
11:16 am
>> not something you think a student should have been arrested for. >> no. >> tonight at 11:00, we'll show the kind of antics that are getting some kids arrested at school. and stuff that as criminal history could stay on their record as an adult. if you have a tip, give us a call or send us an e-mail. politics now and the stage is set quite literally. the race between hillary clinton and bernie sanders at a fevered pitch as they prepare to face off tonight in the final debate before tuesday's pivotal new york primary. sanders had a record-breaking crowd last night in greenwich village but it produced a new controversy over some comments made by a sanders supporter. here's andrea mitchell with much more. >> reporter: bernie sanders on offense. >> there are a lot of people here tonight. >> reporter: rallying a massive crowd in new york city's washington square park.
11:17 am
larger than any hillary clinton has seen this campaign. >> we're going to win this thing. thank you all very much. >> reporter: but this morning, clinton supporters are crying foul over what a speaker said during the rally. >> while i agree with secretary clinton that medicare for all will never happen, if we have a president who never aspires for something greater than the status quo. medicare for all will never happen if we continue to elect corporate democratic whores who are beholden to big pharma. >> although it seemed clear who he meant, he denies it was clinton, later apologizing for the remark on twitter, saying he meant members of congress. he is the husband of lisa ling. today hillary clinton still leads the vermont senator by double digits in new york. >> i need your help on tuesday.
11:18 am
i need your help to go to the polls wi polls. >> reporter: with just five days to go, the two are literally chasing after each other. >> this union and its workers are standing up for justice and i stand with them today. >> reporter: on wednesday sanders was on the picket line meeting with verizon workers on strike. then hours later, clinton showed up at another verizon picket location. >> they need to come to the table and reach an agreement. >> reporter: tonight the two finally meet face to face on the debate stage. their last showdown before new yorkers go to the polls. >> and that was andrea mitchell reporting. meantime, donald trump blazing his trail west. the republican front-runner is coming to the bay area. for the first time in a while california's primary is really going to be pivotal. the golden state has a lot of delegates up for grabs and donald trump knows he's going to need a lot to seal the republican presidential nomination before cleveland. the billionaire republican will be in burlingame two weeks from
11:19 am
tomorrow. he'll kick off the california republican convention at the airport hyatt regency. battery charges against trump staffer corey lewandowski have been dropped. he's accused of grabbing a reporter's arm during a rally in florida. the reporter has agreed to drop the case if lewandowski apologizes. if you're missing a set of bronze collectibles, police in the east bay would like to hear from you. fremont police recovered this set of character bars during a probation search in hayward. it features several disney characters, elvis presley aptd the lone ranger. investigators say there is a strong likelihood that they were stolen. the fremont police department has posted pictures of those collectibles on social media hoping that the owner will come and ultimately claim them. $6 million. that's how much you need to be considered wealthy in the bay area. >> a lot of rough news for a lot of people. no one has $6 million in the
11:20 am
bank. well, some people do. charles schwab did this study to make its clients feel a little better, if they needed it. they surveyed a thousand people to come up with that number and those people said $1 million can provide a comfortable life in the bay area but you probably have to keep on working. >> it's just important to have some perspective living out here. millionaires, that's still a lot of money. we're very comfortable with our weather patterns as well. >> it's free. a free forecast today. what a bargain, kari. >> yes, beautiful weather today wort a million dollars out there. we had some rain this morning. that was probably falling before you even woke up and then it was out of here. let's do a time lapse at mt. hamilton. once the sun came up, we had clouds rolling through. it cleared up and now clouds are starting to return so that's the kind of weather pattern we'll have throughout the day. a mix of sun and clouds and overall some nice conditions. this is a cold front. he's a spin of that area of low
11:21 am
pressure that is well to the north of us that sent down some rain earlier this morning. it is still producing some rain in northern california but i think much of this will pass farther off to the east and north of the bay area. temperaturewise we are in the upper 50s as it continues to slowly warm up. it's 59 in the south bay, peninsula and san francisco. let's drop in on the east bay and get a closer look. in pleasanton it's 61 degrees and 63 degrees in alameda. alamo still at 58 degrees. so still some cool air all across the north bay as well. let's break it down from palo alto to see what you can expect the rest of the afternoon. during that commute home at 5:00 it will still be nice and sunny and 62 degrees. cooling down quite a bit tonight with mostly clear skies. and the wind coming in from the north-northwest at about 15 to 20 miles an hour. but it gets even stronger as we go into tonight as that area of low pressure moves away and high pressure will be nearby.
11:22 am
when we have high pressure and low pressure close together, it makes that air move fairly fast. it will still be breezy into the start of the day tomorrow, winds coming in from the north at 15 miles an hour to start out the day. with some gusty winds, it will create some high swells on our coastal areas. we do have a high surf advisory in effect until 8:00 tomorrow morning. swells will be up to 16 to 22 feet and then you have long period swells up to 16 seconds, so that makes the rip currents more dangerous and also those high waves that may sneak up on you if you are close to the beach, so be mindful of that between today and tomorrow and then things start to calm do. as that area of low pressure moves out, high pressure is right behind that and that will help warm up our temperatures in time for the weekend. we'll have some clear skies, lots of sunshine and look at how these temperatures warm over the next few days. today it will be in the 60s, tomorrow in the low 70s for most of us. and then some more widespread
11:23 am
70s for san francisco. in the east bay up to 85 degrees in the south bay on sunday so it will definitely feel like summertime and a nice beach weekend for the bay area. back to you, sam and laura. >> we just jumped from spring to summer. up next at 11:00, what's in the soil? a troubling discovery that's putting a new south bay school project on hold. but first, happening right now, we are continuing to track showers this morning. as kari just mentioned, it's a reminder to download our bay area app. plus popular on facebook, 73-cent beer served all day at lake chalet in oakland in honor of the record-setting warriors who made history with a huge win at oracle arena. we'll be back in two hints. mint. . . . . . . . a dangerous discovery is putting
11:24 am
11:25 am

plans for a new south bay s welcome back, everyone. dangerous discovery is putting plans for a new south bay school on hold. >> toxins were discovered in the soil off of peet and cochran roads where a new elementary school was set to be built. marianne favro has much more. >> reporter: the developer and the barello family donated more than ten acres of farmland to the school district more than a decade ago. the district hoped to build a
11:27 am
new 600-student elementary school but that's all on hold after recent testing found the soil contained a high level of the insecticide banned in the u.s. in 1987. >> it revealed a number of toxins, so lots of pesticides but the most toxic is linked to things like parkinson's disease, breast cancer, birth defects and so that's one we're concerned about. >> reporter: and the levels are higher than the epa allows. tom jennings and his family live a few yards away from the site. >> they have to clean it up regardless of whether they decide to build on it or not. toxins are in the land. they have to do something about it before moving forward. >> the department of toxic substance control is now determining if the toxins can safely be removed and how to do it. the district says the cleanup could cost $3 to $5 million assuming it can be cleaned. if not, the district would not accept the donated property and would start looking for another
11:28 am
site. >> the new sool was scheduled originally to open by 2019. a spokesperson says a new school is critical because all the current schools there are very overcrowded. getting better and now looking for a new home. the dog who was apparently thrown from a moving car in the north bay is now recovering. she's being taken care of at the petaluma animal services center. she has a little pink cast with hearts on it. the shelter has dubbed her martha. she was found weak and suffering from a broken leg and pelvis yesterday. someone found her near the east washington street offramp in petaluma. martha is going to be just fine and hopefully one of her 12 million fans online will give her a loving, happy home. and they catch the person who did it. up next at 11:00, an accidental shooting where you would probably least expect it. the story you'll see only on abc bay area.

sam//topvo an accidental shooting where you'd probably least expect it. right now only on nbc, we are learning that a gun was accidentally fired off inside of san francisco's hall of justice and a sheriff's department spokesperson confirming that the person who fired the weapon wears a badge. >> chuck coppola shows us the deputy brought that gun to work but didn't know how to use it so the deputy asked another deputy for help and that's when the gun went off. >> reporter: a superior court spokeswoman said the gun was fired inside an office used by deputies assigned as bailiffs on the third floor of the superior court's criminal division. and that it happened before court next to the chambers used by presiding judge terry jackson and the office of the court administrator. sources tell nbc bay area that one deputy brought a .22 caliber baby glock to work but was apparently unfamiliar with how it operated so he handed it to a
11:32 am
fellow deputy and asked how to use it. sources say the second deputy pointed the weapon at the first deputy, apparently unaware that it was loaded. he pulled the trigger and it narrowly missed the deputy, lodging in the wall. a spokeswoman called the shooting accidental and a very serious matter. addinging, we are all very grateful that no one was injured. the superior court spokeswoman said the court administrator was nearby. he got in right after it happened before many staff arrived. >> and that was chuck coppola reporting. we should note in about an hour we'll learn more information about the department of justice's information into the san francisco police department. high profile officer-involved shootings have prompted this review and it's being carried out by doj's community oriented services. its director expected to hold a conference call at 12:30, in about an hour. creditics are calling on the attorney general to investigate sfpd.

11:35 am
>> reporter: detectives with the california department of insurance say velasquez paid friends and family $500 each to let him damage their cars and then collect on false claims. >> they would also buy these policies, anywhere from five to 30 days before the staged accident. would put a certain car on, stam an accident, a false insurance claim. take it off, had another one. >> reporter: one of the co-conspirators was in court today. he did not plead and remains in custody on a separate charge. we spoke to velasquez at his body shop but he declined to comment before he appears in court on may 10th. reporting from san jose, nbc bay area news. do you remember the video from the occupy protest at uc davis? how the sacramento bee is reporting the university has contracted with experts to clear the internet of this video and all negative reports about the

11:38 am
complaining of three-hour lines recently. 600 passengers missing their flights. a detrimental effect on customer wait times and a negative economic impact to the airport and airlines. but the worst may be seattle where the tsa can only staff 19 of 32 security lanes. >> i do fly out relatively often and it's an all-day event most of the time. >> reporter: now sea-tac is adding its own staff action even asking for volunteers to help speed things along. >> members of the public that are volunteers work with us as well. >> reporter: the problems are nationwide. the tsa have lowered their staffing levels not expecting the record surge in passengers, up 8% this year alone. now 2.2 million people are coming through every day and the tsa is trying to staff up fast. while struggling with attrition and the post-brussels terror threat. >> we are increasing hiring and targeting that hiring for the airports of highest volume. >> reporter: the advice for

11:40 am
11:41 am
11:42 am
trouble from trump. this week the new york billionaire blasting the primary voting process, the caucuses in colorado, after losing all 34 delegates to ted cruz. simply put, trump called the system rigged. in today's reality check, a look into the colorado rules at the very heart of this conflict. >> these are rigged, disgusting,
11:43 am
dir dirty system. >> reporter: donald trump sounding off after losing all of colorado's delegates to senator ted cruz. >> we've got a corrupt system. it's not right. we're supposed to be a democracy. >> reporter: claims of corruption. yet the colorado caucuses basically haven't changed since 2012. to be sure, they're complicated. that's why leading news organizations like "the washington post" and bloomberg news, tried to educate voters in the days leading up to the delegate selection. here's how it works. 65,000 registered republican voters caucused at their precincts on march 1st debating who to nominate for the county assemblies. then those chosen meet and vote for another group, about 3,000 people to represent everyone at the state convention and the congressional districts where the reps pick the national delegates. it's a three-tiered voting system. the only difference this year is that colorado abandoned its
11:44 am
straw poll, a new rule by the republican national committee says delegates must be bound to vote for the winner of a straw poll. since colorado's straw poll was historically nonbinding, the state opted out entirely. the colorado republican party spokesperson said it had no impact on the delegate outcome. quote, the reason the straw poll existed in the first place was just something that was conducted for show and to indicate which way the party was leaning. we reached out to the trump campaign for comment, but did not receive a response. meantime, the rnc communications director, sean spicer, told msnbc that the system in colorado is complicated, but he said it's not corrupted. >> running for office entails putting a campaign together that understands the process. there's nothing rigged. it's all out in the open. it's for anyone to see. >> reporter: it's also true, ted cruz and his campaign ops were at the colorado state convention for the delegate selection. donald trump and his team were
11:45 am
not. >> and the colorado republican party is looking at possibly switching to a primary in 2020, but that would take a change in state law. in the meantime the rules for this year's caucuses were well established. when sam isn't doing his reality check, he's doing his other job. that's right, with me, kari, mike, every weekday morning on "today in the bay" from 4:30 to 7:00 a.m. >> i mean the reality is you guys are keeping me in check. >> the reality is i sit next to sam all morning here and in the newsroom and he really does all those reality checks, along with a great producer. >> and i'm constantly questioning everything that you say, and you're always right. i've learned my lesson. >> that's why he's such a great co-worker. let's check that forecast with kari. >> a beautiful day. we started out with some rain this morning. let's take a live look outside. healdsburg -- sam is laughing at me. here we are patchy fog, clear skies and then we started to see

the clouds starting to move back in here recently. so we will be in and out of the clouds as that weather system still rolls just to the north of us. a look at all the microclimates and some of the temperatures in the south bay. it's 59 in san francisco, the peninsula and the south bay. east bay 58 degrees. let's drop in on the south bay now, it's 62 in almaden, so not bad, a little cooler than yesterday. it's also a little more windy so that makes it feel cooler as well. as you take a look at the seven-day forecast at the bottom of the screen, you will see how much we warm up over the next couple of days in particular this weekend. and the winds will be coming in from the north and northwest up to 25 to 30 miles an hour later on this evening as that area of low pressure moves away that brought us the rain and high pressure moves in from the weekend. that will also bring in some gusty winds. a look at all of the microclimates today. mill valley up to 62, 63 in palo
11:47 am
alto and 65 degrees in gilroy. in santa rosa 62. oakland will be up to 63 and pleasanton also at 63 degrees. so once again a little bit cooler today. if you are planning to go to the beach, keep in mind there will be a high surf advisory in effect until 8:00 in the morning. swells will be up to 16 to 22 feet with a period of about 16 seconds because of those gusty winds that we will have today. looking at how much rain we've had recently, in san jose over the past few months, we've measured 4 inches of rain in january. not so much in february, but then march we had more than average and we are right on target for average, but we are only halfway through the month. there will be another chance of rain in the forecast as well. here's how it shapes up for san francisco. look at the january average and what we've measured, over 7 inches of rain when the ampvera is 4 inches. not a lot of rain in february
11:48 am
when we had an additional amount of rain, almost double in march, and then in april, we've had about half of what we normally get, but we're only halfway through the month. so the potential of more rain in the forecast but it is not going to happen this weekend. our highs will be warming up into the low to mid-80s, up to 85 degrees in the south bay on sunday as well as the tri-valley. nice weather tomorrow. that will be the most comfortable day of the weekend. and then once again it will feel like summer as we go into the rest of the weekend. early next week a slight chance of rain on tuesday and then after that we'll go back to some more dry weather. sam and laura. >> looks good. >> a hot weekend in store. thank you. >> head to the beach. we'll be right back. ==laura//2 shot==
