tv Today in the Bay NBC February 1, 2018 4:30am-5:01am PST
a new month starts today. it is thursday morning. it is the 1st day of february. a new month starts today as we look live at san francisco looking nice and clear. you're not going to believe the forecast for this afternoon. thank you for joining us. i'm kris sanchez in for laura garcia. >> and i'm mark washington. >> it's red on the top there, major delay on the b.a.r.t. website. there's a problem with one that is affecting the fremont line. single tracking between union city and south hayward. that's the message at the top here.
i don't know how long it will take to clear that. expect major delays for the warm springs portion of that route. that should mean the rest of the system comes on line. we'll check how that affects north of hayward. this is the area affected on the b.a.r.t. system. the roadways are open right now. no problems for this portion of the b.a.r.t. line or roadways as well. anticipated south, south hayward. we hope to get more information from b.a.r.t. right now kari has good news. nice weather. >> nice weather later on today. a cool start for everyone standing out on the platform waiting for b.a.r.t. a morning where we have mostly clear skies, temperatures mostly in the low to mid-40s and low 50s in a few spots like oakland and san francisco. our high temperatures headed
near records, 72 degrees in san jose. more on that and those record highs we could be setting today. that's coming up in a few minutes. >> thank you very much, kari. knew this morning, students at brentwood's liberty high school will return to class following news one of their classmates died following a short illness, though we don't know what the illness was. less than an hour ago we reached out to the school district to find out what the girl may have died of, and they have not gotten back to us. the school says she was home from school and in the hospital before she passed away. it is not clear at this point whether this was a flu-related death. the district said it had already taken action to sanitize the school amid a very aggressive flu season. 97 people died in california this flu season. across the country, the flu has shut down school districts to prevent the spread. our tom jensen will have a report in our next hour.hom jen
report in our next hour. an alum has visited many times since he graduated in 1996. this week the school is erasing his contributions. we explain why. >> reporter: art is a big part of palo alto high school, but tonight there's outrage over where it's been removed. >> it's gone. the history is erased. >> reporter: and now a noticeably blank wall once home to a mural. the golden globe winner went from '93 to '96. he created this in 2014 and painted several other pieces that still hang in the media art center. but the student publication "the paly voice" writes the principal ordered the mural be painted over as the actor is under fire accused of sexual misconduct. >> not many movie stars come back to their high school to do things like this.
we disrespected him like that, that's ridiculous. >> i support the principal and what she did. she pretty much had to take down the mural because she was responding to the community which i think is really important. he has not been given an opportunity to defend himself. >> reporter: other students say the mural needed to go. >> i think it's the most progressive if we try to distance ourselves from anything like that. >> reporter: we were not able to reach the principal tonight but the media arts teachers say it's up to them if the rest of the works stay on campus. ian cole, "today in the bay." happening now police in the south bay are looking for more victims. police say he sexually assaulted a minor he was coaching. gonzalez had numerous coaching
jobs throughout the south bay including at oak grove high school in san jose, live oak high school in morgan hill, and south valley junior high school in gilroy. he's worked as a lyft driver. now to a troubling trend in the south bay, bay area postal trucks are being targeted. two locked trucks in san jose earlier this week. stole letters and packages. they have been broken into in san jose since last spring. mail trucks in oakland, pleasant hill, antioch and richmond have been targeted. the navy shared findings with the community. officials decided to retest the shipyard in san francisco for radiation.
this is a story brought to life by a bay area nbc investigation. the shipyard is along san francisco's waterfront, an area set to become the largest ever redevelopment projects. >> our big message is the people who live and work here are safe now. we're doing everything we can to do a thorough investigation. >> san francisco officials say they will not accept any land from the navy until regulators can prove that it is clean. >> a follow-up now at 4:36 on that fire at a scrap metal facility in richmond. that smoke so thick people could see it and smell it from miles away. they measured the particles in the air and say levels were 100 times more than what's considered hazardous, an issue people living nearby shelter in
place nearly 12 hours after the fire. more tests of air quality are now under way. coming up on "today in the bay" it is a move by doctors that could be seen as controversial. we'll tell you why some doctors are administering the drug botox to children. and all new this morning, mario cart on the go. one of nintendo's most popular games now coming to your smartphone. when you can expect to start playing mario cart on your mobile device.
good morning. i'm kate rogers live at cnbc global headquarters. wall street is set for a mixed open after an up-and-down session yesterday. stocks initially rallied but then went negative in the afternoon before rising to end with gains. the dow rose nearly 6% in january. that's its best month since march of 2016. it also has its longest monthly winning streak since 1959. you can look for data today on unemployment, manufacturing, and auto sales as well as earnings from alphabet, apple and amazon. the dow closing at 26,149. nasdaq rising nine. shares of facebook today, quarterly earnings last night that beat wall street's forecast thanks to strong ad sales. mark zuckerberg says users spent less time on the social network. 50 million hours less than the
last quarter, about two minutes per user per day. zuckerberg says that's the result of changes made to reduce viral videos in an effort to improve the quality of time users do spend when they're on facebook. and mario is going mobile. nintendo says it will launch a mario cart app some time in the next year. no other details are available but mario cart is one of nintendo's biggest selling franchises. it will produce an animated film based on super mario brothers with illumination entertainment, the studio behind "despicable me" and "minions." back over to you. >> i would see that movie. thank you, kate. >> thanks, kate. >> not just for beauty anymore, botox is also a way to fight headaches as a lot of high grain sufferers would know. now some doctors are using botox on kids. researchers believe the botox blocks pain signals. after one treatment that's 31
injections around the head. kids reported anywhere from 6 to 20 fewer migraines each month. the headaches they did have were shorter and less painful. an estimated 5 million children suffer from migraines. we're going to start out our morning cold with some fogs. kari says that won't be the case the rest of the day. >> it's going to be such a warm day with a lot of sunshine, and we're seeing mostly clear skies. looking outside in san jose. going to campbell, 50 degrees at 8:00. and then look at how those temperatures jump up into the low 70s today. we're going to have more 70s in the forecast, and i'll talk about that up next. kari, there's oakland 880 to the north bogging down as they clear up some construction work but still blocking b.a.r.t. tracks. the maintenance vehicles there and more details on who this will affect.
it is 4:45 right now and things moving smoothly along the golden gate bridge this morning. not quite the story for b.a.r.t. this morning. straight to mike inouye tracking that. b.a.r.t. came up with an early notice before the trains were set to start. they said they have a maintenance vehicle stuck, it derailed from the tracks. let's get that big red marker, major delay for the warm springs line between warm springs and union city, south hayward. where that maintenance vehicle went off the tracks. no word from b.a.r.t. when they
anticipate clearing that from the tracks. this will affect traveling from warm springs to fremont in towards san francisco or oakland or anywhere north of the south hayward station. that vehicle is causing trains to single track through that one portion, so if your line does take you through that area between union city and south hayward, you will experience delays right now and until they clear that maintenance vehicle. everywhere else sounds like it will be getting on the tracks all right after the morning start. no delays reported for the other agencies. capital corridor, separate tracks, of course, they use pacific lines. over to observing, slowing. we'll show you the live camera by the coliseum. north of high street, a little recovery and flashing lights. there's a construction zone that goes on between 23rd and 29th and that's what's clearing right now. as we get back to your map a little bit of slowing should clear just north of the coliseum and everywhere else looking great to the bay bridge, the north bay, and even backing out and showing you the rest of the bay. no real slowing on the roadways.
again, kari, we're watching the b.a.r.t. tracks. a little chilly out there. we'll have to wait longer. >> we started out with temperatures across the bay area in the 40s and low 50s. a live look outside in san francisco. no fog this morning. we've seen some clear visibility for the north bay as well, unfortunately, it's after that full lunar eclipse, right? we will have over the next several days temperatures in the 70s as you get a look at the forecast at the bottom of the screen. low to mid-40s right now in santa rosa and napa and fairfield. 50 in oakland and also 50 in san jo jose. a look at the highs today in the low 70s for the south bay as well as livermore. 70 degrees. 73 in concord. oakland, we're looking at a high of 67 degrees. much more comfortable weather as we go into the rest of the next several days especially for those afternoon hours, but it does start out cool. grab a jacket. a good day to wear your nice
shoes. now starting out this morning, more people may be on the roads because of those issues with b.a.r.t. and that morning commute at least through the south bay will be mostly clear. 47 degrees. and then as you get ready to head out for lunch, we'll be at 66 degrees. definitely a day to take that lunch to the park. we're going to be in the upper 60s and even low 70s in san francisco for the weekend. and, unfortunately, still there is no rain in this forecast through the middle of next week, even beyond that it looks like it does stay dry. look how warm it will be. we could be setting some records here not only today but the next several days. we'll take a look at some of those numbers coming up in a few minute. marcus and kris? >> thank you, kari. the ongoing sexual abuse scandal at a prestigious all-girls catholic school in san jose. >> vicky nguyen joins us with an exclusive interview with a woman
who says she reported inappropriate behavior by a teacher three years before he allegedly molested another student. >> reporter: leslie says the alleged abuse didn't have to happen because her parents warned the school about this teacher. she says he showered her with affection, kisses, gifts. she says she realized it wasn't right, and when she told her parents they reported it to the school. school leaders failed to investigate, and they allowed the teacher to stay. another student we're identifying only as jane doe says three years later that same teacher sexually abused her on an overnight school trip. >> i believe the school is 100% not only complicit but also 100% responsible for the abuse. >> reporter: presentation high leaders says no one recalls the letters from leslie's parents and regret that any graduate of presentation felt unsafe because of anything they perceived the administration did or did not do. tonight at 11:00, jane doe's
close friend says what was said when they reported the abuse. the school may have violated the law by never contacting police. we investigate at 11:00. hope to see you then. if you have a story for our investigative unit give us a call 888-99 -tips or visit the website nbcbayarea.com/weinvestigate. 4:50. happening today uc students and members of the largest uc workers union are planning multiple rallies. they say they'll protest pay inequality. one rally is set for ucsf campus. another at berkeley. we reached out to the university leaders for comment. 4:50 now and continuing coverage as we look live at the bay bridge. a proposal to increase tolls to cross this and other bay area bridges has taken another step forward. the bay area toll authority oversight committee unanimously agreed to put the measure on the ballot in june.
that means you will get to vote on it. as we reported the extra money would go to public transit and roadway improvement. this morning leaders at covered california say they will work through friday to help people make insurance selections for 2018. we told you yesterday that the deadline was yesterday, on wednesday. "the sacramento bee" reports thousands who started applications before the deadline will be able to complete them. leaders hope people will stop waiting until the last minute. >> good luck with that, right? coming up on "today in the bay," making sense of recreational marijuana. the steps state leaders are making to help figure out pot licensing. north korean athletes arrive in south korea airport for the winter olympics. a 32-member delegation includes 12 north korean ice hockey players are already in the south practicing with their south korean teammates for the unified women's olympic team. plus, elon musk's company has

cannabis control is hosting a workshop today in oakland. it will help people make sense of the new licensing requirement, among other things. representatives of the state department of health, food and agriculture, and the tax department along with local agencies will be there to answer questions as well. today's meeting is from 10:00 this morning until 1:00 this afternoon. this is at the oakland marriott city center on broadway. for more information you can visit the bureau of cannabis control. their website is bcc.ca.gov. i've been working trying to get licensing numbers for the bay area. we have numbers for santa clara county. there are seven licensed retailers in san jose for recreational use. none in campbell, cupertino, milpitas, santa clara, north sunnyvale. and there are no delivery licenses issued for recreational pot in santa clara county so
far. also happening today, fremont's new emergency alert system goes online. we first told you about this last week. many other cities in alameda county use the system. this allows police and firefighters to send target alerts to land lines, cell phones, and emandela-mail addre. people can send it from a single interface. and we have -- have you seen these signs right here? they're popping up in san francisco. in fact, 450 are up in the south of market area right now. they are from local street artist who says the signs are meant to protest what he calls overly strict graffiti laws. he plans on starting a petition to stop the city from cracking down on temporary art that does not damage city property. coming up on "today in the bay," we are watching the forecast because it's a beauty. >> yeah, it's going to be really nice but a cold morning as we look outside in fremont. let's get a look at our
temperature trend for a chilly morning, upper 40s. later today, upper 60s. i'll have a look at the rest of that forecast and where we may be setting some records coming up next. all right. i moved our camera in oakland to the oakland b.a.r.t. station. a train headed south to pick up some folks heading down to union city and south hayward. that's where the problem lies. we'll talk about what's going on south of there and give you a forecast based on what b.a.r.t. has told us. plus, new video in to our newsroom this morning of the san jose standoff in an apartment complex. details of what happened before it all ended. ad lib

vehicle that went off the track between hayward, south hayward, i should say, and union city that damaged the track, what we're told recently, and will demand repair work. trains are single tracking through that section. where is that? that's right here. union city, south hayward here. it's right through this stretch. now the folks heading to the dublin/plesbles dublin/bless pleasanton line. the delay will occur and right now b.a.r.t. says for the morning commute. we don't know how long that repair work will take or if the vehicle it still on the track. we have roadways moving well but they're getting more crowded as some folks from this area have to hit the roads and get car-pool buddies. consider that this morning. kari, you're tracking a nice cool start to the day. and no
