5:07 am
recent storms to our south. new video caught on security camera here. a small tornado. that's what's spiraling in the center of the screen, touching down. sending a car airborne. this happened yesterday at an auto repair shop in southern louisiana. the storm did damage the auto shop, but fortunately, not enough to shut down businesses that kept on going. more broadly, louisiana's governor has now declared a state of emergency. >> happening today, a proposal that could dramatically change the way it pressures criminal defendants to show up for court in the state. seven requiring suspects to post bail, county officials would decide whether to release them based on their risk to public safety. some groups oppose the bill. it is 5:07 as you get ready to head out, we have cloudy skies in the north bay. even a little bit of some light rain as we get a closer look. we have seen the spotty showers moving through, but this will be
5:08 am
clearing out as we go through the day. and this is your daily reminder to take your allergy medication. we have a lot of pine, oak, cedar, and a moderate amount of grass pollen in the air. this will be the case for the next couple days as we continue on with more dry weather and a lot of allergens out there floating around. if you have that yellow coating on your car of the pollen, well, you just want to keep it there. we will still have some more of the dry weather for the next couple days. and then you can let mother nature wash your car for you. we'll be talking about the bigger storm system and some heavier rain set to move in on friday. also, a look at the timeline of the temperature trend today in willow glen. that's coming up at about 5:10 as -- rather about 5:12, as we head over to mike. a b.a.r.t. delay reported. >> that's right. but the pollen report comes in handy. my son was having a hard time overnight. we're looking over here toward b.a.r.t. harder time right now between
5:09 am
south hayward and warm springs. some sort of mechanical issue. doesn't sound like it's related at all to the fact that warm springs is the newest station. just under ten minutes perhaps right 93 for your train. meanwhile, getting out of the rest of the bay, the roadways moving well. the freeways not having major issues. going to take you to earlier crash, 880 at alameda. that crash cleared. the debris was also cleared. no problems for the south bay. >> thanks. with everything going on in europe, nick sturgeon is coming to stanford later today. >> we'll tell you what she'll be discussing. >> plus -- >> fox news. pressure grows on the company as ads are getting pulled from the television. we'll take a look in business and tech.

5:14 am
obamacare mandates by covering maternity, mental health, and emergencies, and it would allow insurers to charge sick people more. >> we're encouraged by at least the idea, intrigued by the idea. but would certainly need a whole lot more information. >> the details expected today with a possible vote this week, covering pre-existing conditions and young adults on their parents insurance would stay. not everyone likes that. >> we're approaching this strictly from a public policy standpoint, i'm quite confident that we can do much better with health care reform that we're doing. >> compromise comes after an earl meeting with skeptical moderate republicans and weekend golf diplomacy with rand paul. one of the loudest critics. >> i think the president has made clear that he intends to work with anyone who wants to help him get to the number of votes. >> that number still in motion.
5:15 am
but the number that lawmakers may not have if they vote this week, the congressional budget office number of what this compromise plan would cost. back to you. >> all right. we'll wait and see on that. tracie potts, thank you very much. all sorts of interesting speakers come to stanford. how about this? happening today, scottish leader cola sturgeon is appearing in the bay area. she'll speak on issues that include brexit and climate change. sturgeon opposes brexit for scotland, but now only a couple years after scotland voted to stay in the uk, now there's talks of another vote for scottish independence the works as a result of the brexit outcome. interesting time for her to be on campus. that forum takes place at noon and will be followed by a question and answer session. >> 5:15. tesla is now worth more than ford. >> that is big news. scott mcgrew, investors are excited about the electric car company. >> very interesting.
5:16 am
ford has fallen. you add all the shares of tesla out there, multiply them by the price and get a mark capitalization bigger than ford. the nasdaq hit a high on monday before falling back. verizon said the new company that combines yahoo and aol will be named o. monday marked the beginning of the h1b visa application period, a time where companies mostly in silicon valley can petition the federal government to allow foreigners to come into the country to do specialized jobs. the trump administration has promised big changes and that seems to have started new rules say computer programming in and of itself is not a special enough skill to qualify for an h1' b. >> mercedes-benz and hyundai are pulling their ads from the o'reilly factor after new allegations of sexual harassment
5:17 am
against the host and network. bill o'reilly and fox have paid out millions so car companies knew of this in the past, but the sunday "new york times" article brought the controversy back into the news. >> today is equal pay day, which marks the day when women earn the amount of money men earned last year. in other words, it took until today in 2017 for a woman to earn what a man earned in 2016. the day was created back in the 1990s. had a long talk monday with the woman who created it. she's retired now and living in virginia. she wants you to know the math behind it is far more symbolic that accurate. but the math, who knows. the day is based on the idea that women make 79.6 cents for every dollar a man makes. she's quick to point out that's based on census data. comparing all full time working american women with full time
5:18 am
working american men. what they do is not in factor. they use a tuesday because it doesn't interfere with holidays but it's not based on exact math. they wanted to clear the day a year ahead of time for maximum impact, right? but they don't get the census data until just before the date, so they have to sort of guess. but she told me they got it right this time around. and again, while statistically the 79.6 is nonsense. >> more symbolic. >> the spiritt is important, and the organizer wants you to know that, in case somebody gives you push back, she knows it's a symbol. >> look at the conversation it's created. >> absolutely. >> an important conversation, and the fact of the matter is a certain percentage gap that exists, i don't know know whether it's 10 cents, 20 cents, you can't explain with anything, and why does it exist in the first place? that's why we're talking about it. >> exactly. we'll have continuing coverage this morning as well.

5:20 am
bright and sunny. the home opener sold out. if you're going back tonight, it will not be as sunny. so a little bit -- yeah, we're going to see some big changes as we head throughout the weekend. that will be the big story we'll be talking about this week. the rain comes back. but not today. if you're heading out to the game, here's a look at the forecast later on this evening. mostly cloudy skies. but hey, 65 degrees. you can't beat that. right at 5:00, put the game starts at 7:05 and it will be dropping back into the lower 60s. a breezy one, too. and then later on tonight in the mid 50s. as the seven day forecast comes up at the bottom of the screen, you see a lot of rain in the forecast, especially starting out the weekend. but it won't be raining the whole weekend, so i hope you make plans there. as you head out the door right now in the peninsula, 50 degrees. 48 degrees in the tri-valley. ly clear skies for most of the bay area, but then you head to the north bay. we have some low visibility there and temperatures in the
5:21 am
upper 40s. we also have a few showers moving through. and as we go into the day, going to see mostly sunny skies. 75 degrees in the south bay for the high. also 75 in the north bay. looking at the radar, we do see a little light rain moving through. this is just enough to wet the streets as you get ready to head out for the morning drive, but not seeing a widespread rain, and this will not have a major impact on the day today. but looking at this larger storm system rolling through the pacific, and as it gets closer, we'll start to see more clouds and then some rain eventually by thursday afternoon. for the north bay, the rest of the bay area not seeing it until late thursday night. but then look at friday morning. here we are just all covered with some heavy rain. this could cause quite a few problems with some gusty winds, heavy downpours and the potential in most of the bay area bringing at least a quarter to a half inch of rain, but it will be higher for the north bay where we could see an inch plus in the santa cruz mountains will
5:22 am
get the most, i'm thinking, at this point, about 2 to 3 inches of rain for friday afternoon into saturday. looking at the bigger picture for san francisco, it will be fairly warm the next couple days, but then cooling down after the rain moves in. rain on friday. scattered showers opsaturday, and as you make plans for sunday, that will be the day to get outside. it will be all dry. as we head over to mike, some better news for b.a.r.t. riders. >> the earlier problems we had reported between south hayward and warm springs, mechanical issues have been resolved so there may be up to ten-minute delays for some of thefirst trains getting through the area, but no problems other than that. looks like a nice drive on the freeways as well through the same area. now, as you get a look at your drive, pretty clear, pretty much everywhere. we're showing a little build for west 580. at the dublin interchange, a little build. i'm going to track that closely no surprises, the construction on 84. we'll show you how traffic drives over toward the bay bridge. still a 15-minute drive from

5:34 am
illustrate exactly how much 20% is in case you don't do the math on your own. it is a 20% that represents the pay gap between what men and women make. this is according to analysis by the national partnership for women and families, using u.s. census data. they averaged all women and men who work full year round and found across the board, women made about 80 cents for every dollar men make. some asian women fare better at 85 cents. white women make 75 cents on the dollar, black women make 63 cents, latino women make just more than half what men do for the same work. working moms make 70 cents on the dollar. the institute for women's policy research estimates that equal pay for women would add $513 billion in income to the economy. that's a lot of spending power. and we say, it would benefit everybody if the pay gap were
5:35 am
closed. scott mcgrew talked about the science behind the numbers isn't quite perfect, but the spirit is there. coming up at 6:30, i'll tell how you california stacks up in the big picture. in redwood city, kris sanchez. >> thank you very much. 5:35. in a few hours, the city of san jose will try to help the victims of the coyote creek flooding. after the streets were inundated with water, many residents were left without cars. san jose city council will meet to consider a new ordinance, if passed, the city's surplus cars would be donated to flood victims. the floods caused more than $70 million in damage. >> leaders take steps in exploring new ways to keep pedest rheeps safe while walking. it rolled out the vision zero commitment. at 12:30, city leaders plan to talk about what's already been done and what still must be done to achieve the goal.

>> all new this morning, palo alto is digging deeper at their new california avenue garage. the city began work on the garage two years ago. but some local business owners said they still needed more spots. last night, palo alto city council agreed to increase parking capacity. the new plans include two basement levels. hopefully that will help all the shoppers there. >> governor brown's bold $50 billion gas tax plan we told you about last week to repair roads and bridges has cleared its first major hurdle, but it faces another key test on thursday. state senate appropriations committee yesterday approved that measure in a rare legislative appearance, governor brown provided his own testimony about it, talking about the urgent need for funding. >> the roads are broken and they're getting worse, and they're not going to get better unless we get a significant injection of money. >> we should note, there is no way that injection of money is coming unless it gets two thirds approval from the california legislature. the governor last week introduced his plan in concord,
5:37 am
that's the video you're looking at. it would boost gas taxes about 12 cents per gallon and create a new fee for electronic vehicles. that measure will be voted on on thursday. >> the effort to permanently end scenes like this in san francisco's mission terrace neighborhood is still reportedly a long way from reality. that's according to the examiner which spoke with members of the public utilities commission. parts of the neighborhood along with the mission district frequently flood when there's heavy rainfall. while several improvement projects are under way, they won't be finished for years. follow up now for you. the city of san jose will take the first step in looking for a new independent police auditor. they're expected to vote on a recruitment timeline with a new hire expected this summer. the current independent police auditor is leaving his position friday for his job in chicago. his second in command is supposed to take over in the interim. >> in case you missed the news, april is normally the start of
5:38 am
abalone season off the sonoma coast, but this year, the depart of fish and wildlife cut back on abalone season. it's off limits until may. it ends one month earlier at the end of october, and the reason for the cutback, concerns about food supply. the allowable catch is down from 18 to 12 to try to preserve the stock. >> this morning, a price tag on the repairs from this winter's storms. intense flooding, road damage. the total estimated cost to fix the roads in california is $860 million. one of the largest being the phifer canyon bridge in surestimated to cost more than $26 million on it own. >> it's 5:38. as you get ready to head out this tuesday morning, in the north bay, a little light rain. mist and drizzle. as we get a closer look, not widespread, and this will not last all day.
5:39 am
so a little bit of some mist on your face as you head out, but then as we head through the rest of the week, we'll be talking about this big storm system. yes, the rain will be coming back it's been nice to have dry weather, bewe also need the rain. it will be here as we head into thursday afternoon for the north bay, starting out with light showers, and then getting more widespread and heavy between thursday night and friday. there will be some pockets of some heavy rain. we're also looking at the potential of gusty winds. it continues throughout the day on friday. and then finally starts to wind down for saturday with still some lingering showers through the morning and early afternoon. as you start to make those weekend plans, make sure you know that it will be wet and i'll be keeping you up to date as we will see the changes in the forecast. and coming up in about four minutes, i'll talk about the temperature trend for san jose. mike is starting with san francisco. >> that's right. but i'm also watching the changes for the weather. we're looking over here, changes, i just got a change in the south bay, but will be

jumbled for the report. we are starting in san francisco because i have been tracking this. a disabled vehicle at van ness, just as you're getting to the 101 and i-80 interchange. right around the curve where we have the hazard causing slowing. a disabled vehicle blocking one lane. it could be a problem off the bay bridge. hopefully getting cleared in a matter of seconds. i also told you i would track this. northbound 17. that's the update, at hamilton. that wood debris in the lanes. we had a lot of slowing. looks like there was a traffic break. things are recovering right now. jumping back over toward oakland, the approach to the bay bridge. that's an easy flow of traffic. metering light are on. now 18 minutes. still under 20, but a build for the upper east shore freeway. >> thank you very much. politics and religion. two things you're not supposed to talk about at the dinner table. now, apparently, not supposed to talk about on muni trains either. the reason the transit agency is getting rid of political ads.
5:41 am
5:42 am
5:43 am
