11:01 am
the next several days. santa rosa, one of the places we're watching where highs reach into the 90s and also in concord. already at 83 degrees, and look at all of of this sunshine. as we keep an eye on the thermometer the temperatures continue to claim. >> 73 in oakland and palo alto is 77 and 79 degrees in san jose. want to show you where we're headed as we go through the days with the highs reaching up to 90s, livermore, morgan hill. san francisco up to 82 degrees and 92 today in santa rosa. looking at some of the temperatures and we we may set record. napa, the record is 93 set back in 1966. other places are close and we may set a new record in richmond and livermore and san jose just a few degrees below the record high temperatures. as we go through today and tomorrow, really hot, and then it cools down and we'll talk
11:02 am

11:03 am
elsewhere. that's why in his closing argument the prosecutor hammered away as he called the absurd runaway theory. he played a video from six days before her appearance of lamar being a goofy 15-year-old girl, not about someone to run away. boyd argued after garcia-torres abducted lamar he had five hours with no alibi. plenty of time to sexual assault her, kill her and dispose of her body in or around morgan hill. at one point boyd held up before the jury the clothes sierra lamar was wearing the day before she was kidnapped, sweatshirt, underwear and jeans before discarding them to the floor, the same way garcia-torres did when he stripped them off his victim. for the prosecution they have to overcome the very difficult burden of not having a body, not having a crime scene, not having a murder weapon, and yet telling this jury we believe that sierra
11:04 am
lamar is dead and that antolin garcia-torres is responsible for her death. what you saw the defense do in their case and what they will continue to do in their closing arguments is chip away at the forensic evidence that the prosecution has put forward by saying that it was not reliably collected. it was not reliably tested, and that it cannot be used beyond a reasonable doubt to convict antolin garcia-torres. >> reporter: prosecutor boyd reviewed other physical evidence this morning for a jury that might link garcia-torres to her disappearance, including dna found in his car and on her clothes which were recovered in ma field near her home. at one point people in the courtroom began to cry when boyd played eileen lamar's initial 911 call, the call to report her daughter missing. she said, quote, we were worried she's been abducted, and then marlene broke into tears. reporting live in san jose, bob redell, nbc bay area news.

11:35 am
billion or more to fix the problematic levees. >> the threat of levee of catastrophe is significant. >> this is literally jeopardizing our drinking water in san francisco and l.a. if we don't do anything about it. >> and that's probably one of the facts that i would love for more californians to understand, so it's not just the local areas that's at risk. are the santa clara valley water district, home of silicon valley, gets about 40% of the water from the delta >> you never know when it's going to happen. >> reporter: bruna says the levee of collapse that ruined her home is always on her mind, but it's the possibility of a future levee of collapse that really haunts her. >> because it affects everybody. once the levee of breaks, i mean, it's not just the people would live on the islands now. i mean, it affects everybody. >> reporter: one solution to this, put the drinking water pipes underground. in fact, san francisco's water utility has done just that, burying most of the pipes
