11:02 am
minimum of four weeks, probably more. so, don't expect him to be playing much in the regular season. but if he's ready to go by the start of the post-season, that will be okay. but any kind of set back or slow healing, everything is up for grabs. >> let him rest a little bit. they have the rest of the team and it's going to be good. >> i think it's actually probably good timing. it's going to give steph a little bit of a slump, an opportunity to step back up and lead the team and it's also going to get him back just in time for the end of the regular season. before the playoff starts, could be good timing. >> steph curry sending some love to teammate kevin durant this morning in a tweet. heal up, my man. we'll hold it down till you're back on the court with us. prayers up. draymond green, i'm hurt to see my guy go down but it's always strength in numbers, get well soon, k. comcast sports net is reporting

tornadoes and those storms were heading right for them. sam? >> pretty amazing there. thanks, kris. so, thats was the series of video kris just showed you. this is the sierra, latest happenings there, survey beginning. department of water resource is up in the sierra measuring the snow pack. this video comes from last month it's survey which found the pack at its highest level in two decade. electronic monitors tuesday showed the pack is twice its normal size. all of that, of course, courtesy of a historically wet winter season california has had following five years of drought. so, we can't wait to see what the results of that are. back here in the bay area, no snow, just plenty of blue sky. a live look right now at downtown san francisco and this week so far has been very sunny, if a little bit cold. >> that's right. meteorologist kari hall joins us now. kari, the weekend changes that forecast a bit. >> it does. we have enjoyed some sunshine and temperatures that have been very chilly to start, but then warming up during the afternoon.
11:10 am
that's what we are seeing in progress right now. we are up to 55 degrees in san jose and it will continue to warm at least another 10 at the grizzlies in spots. so, looking at 53 degrees in oakland and san francisco, fairfield at 55 degrees. and we have been talking about the changes heading in, but as we enjoy today, it will be right at about average for the first day of march. and then temperatures dropping as we go into tonight. and looking farther down the line, looking at that rain that is affecting parts of the pacific northwest, this will be dipping to the south. we will talk about the time line and how much rain we can expect. it's come ug up at 11:21. >> thanks, kari. about an hour ago the santa clara county water district announced it will ask for federal assistance to address, reduce and prevent future flooding of the coyote creek area which impacted thousands of residents last week damaging homes and properties and valued personal belongings. meanwhile, the san jose, the

11:12 am
has crazy low prices. do you know how we do it? - how? - bargainomics! say, if california has a bumper crop and produces too many oranges. or a winemaker in sonoma suddenly has 1000 bottles too many. we've got name-brand, top-quality groceries priced 40-70% off every day.
11:13 am
bargainomics. that's our business model. and our business model is... delicious. ♪ grocery outlet bargain market ♪ angele just this rning--that driver lead police thugh new video now from south los angeles. just this morning that driver led police through city streets
11:14 am
for almost two hours. police became more aggressive, ramming that suspect's car until he was forced to stop. then the chase became a standoff when the driver remained inside that broken down vehicle. the suspect reportedly car jacked someone and police wanted to be prepared in the event he had a weapon. that standoff is still going on right now as we look live. you can see some of the armored vehicles that are responding there in south los angeles. s.w.a.t. has now joined police to try to bring it to a peaceful end. >> all right, kris. we've been talking about the fact that history was made this morning. the dow jones broke the 21,000 threshold and just keeps soaring from there. right now as you see on your screen, in early trading it's up 314 points, at 21,127. seems that lately as if scott mcgrew's business report is more of a what has uber done wrong now report.
11:15 am
>> here we go again, scott. more trouble for uber. >> uber is now in that category of companies where you hear their name and you say, oh, what now? like theranos. hewlett-packard was in that category. this morning uber's troubles involve the founder and ceo on tape using foul language as he argued with an uber driver over how much drivers get paid. this comes from a recording on a dash cam by the driver who gave it to bloomberg. check out to can see the whole video. ceo issued a public apology saying it is clear this video is a reflection of me and the criticism we have received as a stark reminder that i must fundamentally change as a leader and grow up. this is the first time i have been willing to admit that i need leadership help, and i intend to get it. getting the leadership help may include replacing himself as ceo, a move that's probably overdue.
11:16 am
it's not uncommon for start-up founders to step aside and allow more experienced leaders to come in from outside the company in order to take the company public. a new report says san jose is the least affordable housing market in the whole nation and the fifth least affordable in the whole world. hong kong gets the top spot. the median home price in san jose is above $1 million. now, the study uses the median home price and the median income which when you think about it is definitely the most solid way of looking as to whether somebody can afford a home. in odessa, texas, a house is three times a person's income. in san jose the median income is $100,000, but the house median is a million, so, it is it's ten time the income. guys is it >> new at 11:00, wells fargo ceo will not get his bonus for 2016, and that is the san francisco bank's way of taking accountability after more than 2 million accountants -- accounts were opened without customers' knowledge. seven other top executives will

11:18 am
university. but the mercury news reports that they also said the university needs a new dean of engineering, one that is more connected to the silicon valley. that was included in an article published last month, but then the reference was later removed. the university says the harm of the comment outweighed the benefit of it but that violates the first amendment. we reached out to the university. we are still waiting for a response this morning. while most of us may take it for granted our investigative unit found hundreds of thousands of our neighbors do not have regular access to safe, reliable, clean drinking water. tonight our investigative unit takes us to communities where the drought has literally left them with no water to drink. and we talked to experts about new data showing that as many as 1 million people living in california are exposed to contaminated drinking water. >> they are real serious health impacts to contaminants that can cause cancer, it can cause death in babies after a few days of high exposure. >> for some of these communities
11:19 am
in crisis? >> they're all in crisis. i think one of the most frustrating things is if this is an emergency, i don't know what is. >> coming up tonight, senior investigator stephen stock breaks down the numbers and takes this into home where the only water safe to drink is being delivered in bottle shape by volunteers. that is tonight at 11:00 on nbc bay area news. if you have a tip for our investigative unit give us a call at 800-996-tips or send an e-mail to the unit at >> well, america wanted to know what would president trump's first congressional address look like. last night they found out during his speech, he called for unity and reasserted his commitment to america first. nbc's blaine alexander reports from washington, d.c. with national reaction and much more. >> mr. speaker, the president of the united states. [ applause ] >> the unconventional president speaking in his most traditional
11:20 am
setting to date, and striking a tone to match. >> everything that is broken in our country can be fixed. every problem can be solved. but we can only get there together. we are he one people with one destiny. >> reporter: but democrat immediately reacted, calling it empty rhetoric. >> this speech will be forgotten in a day or two and where is the action? where is the actual doing things to helping working people? that's what we want and that's what we're waiting for. >> reporter: while some democrats did hear some thing they liked. >> paid family leave, let's go, let's do t. a trillion dollars in infrastructure. >> reporter: there is skepticism on both sides of the aisle on how it will get done and how much it will cost. still, republicans are praising the speech, saying president trump connected with the people who put him in office. >> i think the american people heard his heart. >> reporter: but perhaps the most unifying moment of the night was one detached from politics. >> ryan's legacy is etched into
11:21 am
eternity. thank you. >> reporter: both sides rose to their feet to honor the widow of ryan owens, a u.s. navy seal killed last month during a raid in yemen. blaine alexander, nbc news, washington. >> shifting gears now, and turning our attention to the weather we'll get to kari in a he second. first, how about some spring break data just into our newsroom. csa is expecting a lot of college students and others traveling this spring. and, in fact, it could be the highest rate in a decade. csa projects 62 million people could be flying this month alone, so be prepared for busy airports. >> i have a feeling you're going to be able to pick them out in the crowd who they're on the airplane. the ones with the muscle tees and the floats. >> like normal people when we travel for spring break. >> at sometimes it's the parents with their children, the smaller ones. so, it's definitely spring break
11:22 am
weather like that now. but this morning it wasn't at all. it felt more like winter. so, we have a high range in temperatures from the morning to the afternoon, ocean beach may be a popular spring break spot, right? it's looking nice and clear right now. and as we get a view of sunol, temperatures at 54 degrees, but we are heading up as we go into the rest of the day. look live now at the castro, 53 degrees, 55 in fairfield, napa and santa rosa as well as san jose, and we're also seeing those temperatures in the mid 50s, but heading up into the mid 60s later today. los gatos will be at 66 degrees and 63 today in danville and antioch. walnut creek 65 degrees, and 62 degrees for the high today in belmont. marina district at 59 degrees for the high and napa today a high of 66 degrees. we have enjoyed all of this sunshine, the dry weather, the warming temperatures, but there will be some changes as we head
11:23 am
into the weekend. going to see the clouds and the rain that's well to the north of us starting to dip to the south as we go into the weekend. so, a couple of more days of some dry weather and we will start to see that rain moving in for saturday. it looks like the time line has been moved up a little bit. by saturday afternoon we do start to see that rain moving into the north bay. the rest of the bay area sees it late saturday night into early sunday morning before that storm system rolls off to the east. and then after that, at this point it does look like it does dry out for a little while longer and we'll go back to some mild weather and some dry conditions. and look at early, an early look at how much rain we could see with this weather system moving through. the potential of half an inch to an inch and a a quarter. we're also keeping an eye on those reservoir levels. anderson reservoir has just stopped spilling over and we are still at 101% of capacity for the uvas reservoir and up to 95%
11:24 am
for the lexington, chesboro at 82, and almaden at 80%. we're not expecting many more flooding problems, but we may see these levels going up just slightly. so, something we'll be watching as we he head into the weekend and as you make plans to get out there, expect it to be cloudy starting out saturday morning for both the bay and the inland areas. and then seeing the north bay showers starting to move in by early afternoon. i'll have another look at that 7-day forecast and what to expect it's coming up a little bit later. >> all right, kari, thank you so much. coming up next, newly revealed documents that could tarnish the reputation of a prestigious bay area school. the claims against more than 100 faculty and staff members. >> but first happening now and trending on twitter, yoyo the fugitive who robbed five bay area banks in half a year's time was sentenced to a ten year prison sentence. her real name is yolanda brown. she committed all of those crimes while on the run from drug charges. and on our website, just

flight cancellations and delays for a big part of the country. in ottawa, illinois, i'm blake mccoy, nbc news. >> all right. part of that where in the country those tornadoes hit, very vulnerable, part of it the season, kari, but that is a lot of damage there. >> yeah, and this is all because of a very strong cold front sweeping through the midwest. and it continues on its progression towards the mid atlantic states and the southeast. back behind us, a lot of very cold air and the severe weather situation is still unfolding. as i've seen over 200 reports of wind damage and some hail, we still have some of those severe thunderstorm warning and tornado watches in effect for parts of the southeast. but the good news is that a lot of these storms are weakening as they continue that progression across the southeast and we'll be keeping an eye on this. the good news, sam, it looks as if the squaw line is weakening. >> definitely something to keep an eye on. kari, thank you very much. happening right now, crews
11:35 am
scrambling to clean up dirt and debris from the base of the damage spillway at lake oroville. take a look at the damage there. it certainly looks even worse now that all the water is gone. they shut down the flow of water and you see the just sheer erosion in the middle of the spillway. you may recall that spillway was damaged three weeks ago and that's when the emergency spillway had to be activated into use for the first time ever. but that spillway was in danger of failing so the main damage spillway was put back into use. the water was shut off on monday, water level has risen more than 3 feet. the water levels are nearly 60 feet below the emergency spillway. and we continue to track the anderson reservoir in morgan hill. we just checked and as of ten minutes ago, kari was talking about this in her weather forecast, that reservoir is 99.9% full. it's down from about 103% earlier in the week. water has stopped overflowing in the spillway there which is easing fears of more flooding. this is video by contrast at the height of the runoff last week.
11:36 am
the reservoir is only supposed to be 68% full. look at that, just a waterfall coming over the side of the structure there. people were coming from all over the area to take video and pictures. >> you can't tell how bad it is until it's over, right? so, the angelina garcia torres murder trial continues today. he is the man accused of killing sierra lamar. the trial was suspended after a juror was sick. before that a santa clara criminalist took the stand. the testimony focused on how the evidence was collected. prosecutors say lamar's hair was found on a rope in garcia torres' car and his dna was found on her clothing that she was wearing on the day that she disappeared. those clothes were found in a bag a few miles away from her home in morgan hill. garcia torres claims he did not know lamar. defense is saying the evidence was collected improperly and is contaminated. >> oakland's new police chief has laid out some of her plans

11:38 am
>> reporter: linda is talking about erin goldberg, a quiet but playful animation glad student at academy of university. >> that's what she wanted to do with her animation, is make people smile. she made people smile her whole life. what happened to the 24-year-old back in june 2015 is still a mystery. she took a cab to the marin head lands on that blustery night. she brought her camera along after researching on the internet the national park services' monthly guided full moon walk to the point benito light house. >> erin loved the full moon. she loved the golden gate bridge. what a great opportunity to go and take photos and be in a safe environment because it's a national park. >> reporter: still, a cab driver told authorities in a taped interview that he was concerned about leaving her there.
11:39 am
>> it just didn't seem right to me, but i didn't ask any questions or anything like that. but to be out there in that -- once it got dark, it didn't seem right. >> reporter: she checked her voice mail at 8:00 p.m. 20 minutes after the walk began. at 9:18 p.m., she texted good night, mama llama. no one heard from her. a day and a half later a jogger spotted her body on a remote beach nearly 300 feet below the light house. investigators later searched but never found her purse, glasses or camera. goldberg's mother says the investigators suggested her daughter had taken her own life. but it's not clear whether goldberg even went on the walk. investigators manage today track down three people out of the 50 there that night. only one remembered seeing goldberg before the tour started.
11:40 am
but dot han saw the cab a strange man loitering around the parking area. records show that most of the interviews were done within eight days and over the phone. by november, the park case was closed with no finding about her death. the autopsy was inconclusive. although it discounted suicide, given that there were no prior signs and no drugs or alcohol were involved. >> the whole thing is a joke. >> reporter: the family now wants 800 pages of case files to finally resolve the mystery for themselves. park officials are citing privacy concerns in withholding them. >> and they're fighting us tooth and nail in releasing information that shouldn't be difficult to release. >> reporter: authorities say they have already turned over everything they can by law. meanwhile, park officials no longer favor suicide. they sent us a statement saying their thorough and comprehensive investigation suggests goldberg's death was an accident. no evidence of foul play
11:41 am
surfaced and it's considered to be the least likely scenario, they told us. her roommate of two years, maggie baseler says the case should never have been closed in the first place. >> she's always really happy, very careful about everything. it doesn't lineup. >> reporter: a year and a half later friends and family are no closer to knowing what happened to erin goldberg that full moon night. jaxon van derbeken, nbc bay area news. >> if you have a tip for our investigative it give us a call at a 888-996 tips or send us an e-mail to the unit at >> all right. today is the first day in march we are starting to get a hint of spring. it's right around the corner here, kris. >> i say i see daffodils. >> it's a beautiful day and did it looks very nice as we get a view of san francisco toward the embarcadero. i wish i could tell you this weather would last through the weekend. more on that coming up.
