explaining the search for the suspect inside of that center this morning. >> when deputies arrived, they searched the scene, and searched the area with the assistance of chp helicopter. they were unable to locate the suspect. the suspect fled the scene. the immediate area is secure and the area -- no one is in danger currently in the immediate area. >> reporter: and they're securing this area, as you see behind me, as this investigation continues. and interestingly enough, guys, there is still no suspect description at this time, and the motive of the shooting is still unknown. we're live here in san rafael. pete suratos, nbc bay area news. >> thanks for the latest from the scene, pete. all morning long, as we have been telling you, we have been reporting on this story. you in might have been woken up with a push alert. download our nbc bay area app so you can know about breaking news when you wake up. this is in 2018, we are just
one day away from the midterm elections and the two candidates running for governor for california are making a last stop right here in the bay area. "today in the bay's" bob redell is live in berkeley. and republican john cox just wrapped up? >> reporter: correct, marcus. republican candidate for governor, john cox, came here to berkeley, one of the cities with the greatest liberal reputations in the country. one of the greatest. to talk to employees here at this auto repair shop about the housing crisis and how he would fix it if elected governor tomorrow. cox is on an end of the campaign push throughout the bay area, and southern california, to speak to voters and the media. his team, as you see clearly on his big green campaign bus, help is on the way. cox believes california is run by special interests that were overregulated, overtaxed, which is why he's in favor of repealing the gas tax. pr proposition six is up tomorrow.
some commute from antiqua and modesto because they can't afford bay area rent. cox, who has made millions building apartments in indiana believes the building process here in the state is cumbersome, expensive, which is the main reason rents are so high, in his opinion. he said when he is elected governor, he will streamline the approval process, cut back on builder fees to make housing more affordable and call for a special session of the state legislature. >> rear-view mirror. rear-view mirror. that's old information. you know, they look at stuff that's happened a long time ago. talk to governor tom bradley. i know he's not around. and governor kathleen brown. the polls all were showing them to be governors, you know, right up until the date of the election. and they lost. people in california have a very good way of, first of all, rejecting the conventional wisdom and deciding for
themselves that they want change. let me tell you, this office of governor has changed, it's flipped back and forth. people want to check on this legislature. and, you know, mr. brown has been somewhat of a check on this legislature. i don't think there's too many people that mr. newsom -- think that mr. newsom is going to be any kind of check on this legislature. his protestations to the contrary. >> reporter: that was his chances of feeling of winning. roughly 17 points behind his opponent, lieutenant governor gavin newsom. cox is off to san francisco for a media appearance now and the east bay in sacramento. tomorrow he'll be in orange county and san diego where he lives. his opponent, gavin newsom, will be in san francisco tonight for a final get out the vote rally with senator kamala harris and governor jerry brown. incidentally, cox says that berkeley does have a special
place in his heart, as his mother attended cal back in the 1940s. reporting live in berkeley, bob redell, nbc bay area news. >> thanks, bob. nbc will have live time coverage of the election results as they come in. you can join lester holt, savannah guthrie and chuck todd tomorrow starting at 7:00 p.m. our team will cut in with local results throughout the night. turning to our microclimate forecast, taking a live look outside this monday morning overlooking san francisco. after a warm weekend in some spots, it looks like more of the same, really nice temperatures. we're kind of staying in the 70s? >> yeah, it's going to cool down just a few degrees for some. but we are still looking at some really dry weather for all of the bay area. >> any rain in sight? >> no. >> that's what we need. >> i know, we do need some rain. and i don't see any of it as i'm looking through the computer models now. as we get a live look outside in san jose, it is all clear and sunny. you can see the hazy skies, and nothing but clouds. no clouds anywhere as we get a
look at all of our cameras. and our temperatures are now already starting to warm up. look at these numbers. 65 in san francisco and 80 right now in fairfield. we do have some 70s as we look at the map. so as you're getting ready to head out on your lunch break in the south city area, it's going to be in the upper 60s over the next few hours. we'll get a look at all of our microclimates and what to expect as this dry weather continues. that's coming up in the full microclimate forecast. >> thanks, kari.

investigative reportingful, which issued a new report about tesla this morning. the report, written by their team called reveal. it claims tesla will not allow its employees to call 911 after an accident. they have to get permission from the on-call doctor. and reveal says tesla is actively trying to hide serious injuries from the government and public. here's reveals reporter, will evans. >> reporter: counting the injuries is legally mandated and goes into an injury rate that shows sort of the overall safety records of the company. and tesla is really focused on showing it's improved safety. but we found they're actually just not counting injuries. >> reporter: now, the report relies heavily on the word of a physician's assistant who worked at the factory less than a month before she was dismissed. tesla had no comment on the report, but the lead doctor for the medical contractor, access omni care, released four paragraphs worth of response. i've got a few of the points
here. dr. baizel besh says he treats workers the same way he treats patients in private practice, so they can get, in his word, the necessary testing and treatment without being hindered by often cumbersome california workers' compensation system. he says allegations that tesla pressures the medical staff to return workers to the line is false. he says while anybody on the medical staff is allowed to call an ambulance, quote, every ambulance that is thoughtlessly called for a nonlife threatening injury is one less ambulance available to actually save a life. you'll be able to read this on revealnews.org. >> okay, interesting. thank you. >> you bet. new video from nbc bay area sky ranger showing small boats docked off the shore of sausalito. they have been put on notice, leave the spot or get towed. they have been bobbing in richardson bay this weekend. any boat left for 72 hours could be removed by officers. a number of boats in richardson

million a year. companies like sales force, the one mark benioff runs. >> we believe in the spirit of st. francis. it is in giving we receive. every company in san francisco needs to start giving. >> reporter: that was his message here at the silver spur awards with a lot of the companies in the audience. he says homelessness is bad for business. >> the national media is running headlines and photographs of our garbage-strewn streets. >> reporter: he says he doesn't need to read the headlines. >> do you know how many e-mails and phone calls i receive from my customers who are saying they don't want to come to san francisco because of our homeless problem? that's becoming a material issue to us as a company. >> reporter: mayor breed spoke at the same event. she made her opinion clear. >> we can't just spend money without doing the work to figure out the best ways to spend it. >> reporter: basically, there are two arguments against prop c. the first comes from tech ceos like jack dorsey, who runs twitter and square. they say a new tax would make it harder to do business in san francisco and companies could leave, taking jobs with them.
the second argument comes from politicians, who say prop c paints them into a corner that gives them a bunch of money and not much flexibility on how to spend it. >> basically doubles what we spend on our exact existing approach to homelessness, and we need to make reforms and make changes to our actual approach. >> reporter: you have probably guessed by now, mayor breed, state senator scott weiner and jack dorsey are on the no side. they've gotten big donations from stripe, visa, lyft, macy's and a handful of venture capitalists, adding up to $1.6 million. benioff, friedenbacke and chuck robbins on the yes side. most of their money from salesforce and benioff himself, totalling $8.5 million. >> i would challenge every business leader out there to ask themselves, what is my company doing? >> reporter: in short. >> benioff says money is the answer. his opponents say the city needs policy change, not a new tax on big companies.

reaching our high temperature and keep in mind that the sun will be setting shortly after 5:00. so if you've got some plans to get outside, you need to go to the grocery store. you're going out for dinner. it's going to be getting dark right after you get off of work. so our afternoon commutes -- temperatures in morgan hill will be up to about 76 degrees, reaching our high temperature at 4:00 there, and as the sun sets, it will start to cool off and we'll be at 71 degrees at 6:00. if you will be going out there and you're listening to your music, you're enjoying your time outside, san ramon is also going to be reaching up to about 76 degrees. and summer-like feel to the air as we go around the bay area. we were reaching up to 79 in antioch, and concord looking at a high of 78 degrees. in oakland, expect a high of 70, and in san francisco, 68 degrees. and then as we look at the satellite, we see all-clear skies here. some very dry air. but we do still have some rain. if you'll be traveling to the
pacific northwest, there is where the storm track remains. and it's been staying well to the north of the bay area. and we're not going to see this changing over the next few days. high pressure still well to the west of us. and then as we go into next week, it still looks like it's going to be unseasonably warm. but then finally heading into about mid november, we could possibly see things changing. but as of now, it is going to be dry and very warm. reaching the upper 70s over the next few days, and we are going to see that continuing. some very chilly mornings during the next several days, as well, heading into the weekend. only slightly warmer. and san francisco is looking at highs in the upper 60s. we'll be up to about 70 degrees this saturday. and veterans day is looking nice and comfortable there with a high of 67 degrees. i'll have another look at the forecast coming up in a few minutes. >> sounds good. thanks, kari. coming up, have you started your holiday shopping yet? is it too early?
amazon upping the ante when it comes to shipping. what the shopping giant is now offering to entice you. first, happening now, the president is being criticized for a campaign ad that is not only factually incorrect, it comes across to many as racist. cnn has refused to run the ad, but nbc did air a shorter version of the ad last night. this is during the green bay/new england football game. nbc is apologizing and says it will not reair the ad. nbc is our parent company, but we had nothing to do with the decision to run the ad. we're back with more news for you right after the break. did y

day. we also visited sanctuaries, where many of these exotic pets end up when they become too hard and too dangerous to handle in people's back yards. that is if the owners don't kill the animals first. one sanctuary showed us dozens of tigers rescued from people's back yards and roadside zoos. they and about a dozen other facilities like them are full with no room to take any more rescued animals. >> people can't believe what a big problem it is. i mean, there are thousands and thousands. you know, like 7,000 tigers in people's back yards in the united states. and there are only 4,000 in the wild. there are more pet tigers in the united states than there are wild tigers in the rest of the world. >> reporter: we also followed u.s. border patrol agents and u.s. fish and wildlife agents as they tried to stop these animals from being smuggled across the border. you might not believe some of the animals that they have intercepted recently.

big corporations are making and just got a huge tax break. but the middle class is struggling. prop c is a common-sense plan. the top 1% of businesses pay their fair share to tackle homelessness for all of us. companies with revenue greater than $50 million pay, not small businesses or homeowners. the prop c plan is supported by the democratic party, nancy pelosi & dianne feinstein vote "yes" on c. big corporations pay for it, not you.

santa clara county has led to the addition of a second clinic at stanford hospital. currently, there's only one clinic operating where victims can have a rape kit administered. it's miles away at valley medical center in san jose. supporters of the new clinic say someone who has just endured a sexual suassault should not hav to go so far. >> there is a location on campus. it's a great idea. we're very happy. >> when plans were finally announced to open a clinic on the stanford campus, concerns were raised during a county supervisors committee meeting. a second busy night for firefighters in santa cruz county, battling a fire that left one alternate bay area commute route closed. the fire started saturday night. as of last night, it burned 17 acres with 30% containment. it's burning near highway 9 and northeast of uc santa cruz. the two-mile stretch of highway

store, amazon is set to open another store, this time in the east bay. this is video of the store in sf. the store in berkeley will contain items rated four stars or better. those items in the store will change daily as customer views change. there are possible new developments in the high stakes competition for amazon's second headquarters. >> some clues are pointing to northern virginia, right across the potomac river from washington, d.c. nbc's tom costello reports. >> reporter: this morning, the giant of the internet may be close to announcing one of the most highly anticipated business decisions in decades. which city will land its hq2? >> the "washington post" is reporting that amazon is holding advanced discussions to move to our area. >> reporter: on the table, 50,000 jobs and billions of dollars of economic impact, potentially for crystal city, virginia. back in january, amazon announced the 20 metro areas in the final running. among them, l.a., denver,
chicago, atlanta, montgomery county, maryland, d.c., northern virginia and new york. all trying to outdo each other by offering massive tax incentives. but ceo jeff bezos, the world's richest man, has kept mum. >> ultimately, the decision will be made with intuition after gathering and studying a lot of data. >> reporter: now, the "washington post," which bezos actually owns, reports that discussions with northern virginia are more detailed than the other cities in the running. and multiple buildings have already been pulled from the leasing market for amazon. crystal city sits just across the potomac river from washington, d.c., a mere subway ride from downtown. access to three airports, the i-95 corridor and east coast ports. >> definitely a great location. a lot of people, different cultures, different races, different everything. >> reporter: but the area is also densely populated and congested. >> housing costs. >> whether the tax breaks are
worth it. >> reporter: still, virginia's governor is confident. >> we're in a good position with the way we train our work force, the talent we have in northern virginia and the greater washington area. >> reporter: but after the "washington post" reported the development, an amazon exec suggested it was premature, tweeting, memo to the genius leaking information about crystal city, virginia, as hq2 selection, you're not doing crystal city, v.a., any favors. with an hq decision expected by the new year and plenty of worthy suitors, there is optimism in northern virginia. >> i think it's great. it's great for the community. jobs. good thing. >> interesting to see. hey, let's see the forecast right now. nice temperatures. >> yeah. it's really nice out there. here's a live look outside in fremont. we can see the sun shining out there, and as you get ready to head out on your lunch break, it's going to be in the upper 60 s. reaching the low 70s today. we'll get a look at all of our microclimates and the rest of the week ahead, come up next. nba

and they just want to make their voice heard. but make sure it's only their voice and not some sort of state voices out there. that's what we're following, as well. back to you guys. >> thanks, mike. a lot of people talk when it comes to election time, the weather plays a factor. we're going to have some really nice weather. >> no excuses for not going to the polls. i like to walk to the polls. and then, you know, take in some sunshine. you should do that, as well, as you head there tomorrow. today we are able to just relax and try to get away from all of the ads all over the place, right? 65 degrees right now in ocean beach. nice day to relax there. and 63 degrees in oakland. it's 67 now in napa. and look how warm it is already in fairfield. it is 80 degrees. well, as we take a look at this beautiful shot of the sunshine in palo alto, we're heading into the low 70s there. keep in mind that the sun will be setting shortly after 5:00 today. so as you're going out, running some errands, going out to dinner, it is going to be getting dark very soon.
and then it's going to cool off fairly quickly. we'll be dropping down to 63 degrees in palo alto at 7:00. let's head over to martinez and see how our temperatures shape up. it's going to reach into the upper 70s today. we'll be right at our high temperature at 3:00 this afternoon. and then at about 73 degrees, as we watch the sunset. very comfortable. as we go down to the south bay, our high today in downtown san jose reaches 75 degrees. and these temperatures are running above average. we should be in the upper 60s in the south bay. for the east bay, up to 78 degrees in concord. and for the peninsula, reaching as warm as 73 in redwood city. san francisco, staying in the 60s today. the mission district reaching 68 degrees. and 77 today in sonoma. as you make plans to go out tomorrow, we've been talking about how nice it's going to be. it does start out cool for the inland areas. we'll be at about 48 degrees at 7:00, and then 52 degrees. reaching into the upper 60s for
the bay while the inland valleys will be back in the upper 70s. we're stuck in the weather pattern with high pressure that's just to the west of us. and the clockwise wind flow around that high pressure brings in some northerly winds, keeping it really dry and also blocking the storm track from making it into the bay area. so as we go through the rest of the week, still no changes here. although that high pressure will nudge its way just a little bit farther away, as we go into early next week, and there will be the potential of some of that rain possibly making it a little bit closer. but i still don't see any rain in this forecast. so we're going to be very dry with highs reaching into the upper 70s. over the next several days, morning temperatures will still be chilly, dropping down into the 40s. while san francisco will stay in the 60s all week long. and the warmest day will be saturday, reaching 70 degrees. and, of course, i'll have more updates on any rain chances farther down the line. that's coming up as we go into the next couple of days. laura and marcus? >> are nice to see. we do need that rain.
thanks, kari. coming up for you, have you she would out the new big bucks for the new iphone xs? some people complaining about the screen cracking. we test out one of the new iphones, the drop test. you don't want to miss it. here are the facts.leading attacks against prop c. the city's chief economist says prop c will "reduce homelessness" by creating affordable housing,
expanding mental-health services, and providing clean restrooms and safe shelters with independent oversight, open books, and strict accountability measures to make sure every penny goes to solving our homeless crisis. vote yes on c. endorsed by the democratic party, nancy pelosi, and dianne feinstein. recently, more than $20 million has been spent in the race for superintendent of public instruction to attack my friend tony thurmond's record. well, i've worked with tony, and no one is more qualified
to lead our state's schools. that's why tony thurmond is the only candidate endorsed by classroom teachers and the california democratic party. because tony will stand up to the donald trump-betsy devos agenda and has always protected our local public schools. join me in voting for tony thurmond. let's put our kids first. iphones keep shattering when well, now to a consumer complaint. the brand-new apple iphones keep shattering when dropped. well, this as apple promises the glass is stronger than previous models. >> what do you need to know before buying the latest model? abc's jeff rossen bought a bunch of phones and dropped them just to see if they can really hold up. >> reporter: apple claims the new xs models are made with the most durable glass ever in a smartphone. but now some customers already plasti
blasting the phones. one user tweeting, had the phone less than 24 hours. dropped it from less than three feet, already cracked. another one posting, day one of having my iphone sx, dropped it and cracked the whole back screen. so what does it take for these new phones to break? okay. let's try it out for ourselves. i have two of the new model iphones here, the sx model. this one doesn't have a case on it, because we want to see how strong the glass is by itself. this one does have a case on it, because we know many of you have cases, so we're going to try that too. i'm going to hand off one off camera with my producer with the case. we go without the case first. we have multiple cameras rolling on this, and also the iphone camera rolling right there. i'm going to take it out of my pocket and drop it, because that's sort of how you would do it. oops. okay. let's see. not cracked. screen is all good. let's try it again. same area. whoops. and again. falling at random angles. the screen is still not cracked.
look at that, the screen is fine. try it again. sometimes landing right on the screen. screen is still intact. until -- drop number 11. all right. now we have it. now we have a big crack going right through here. and also some shattering on the side of the screen right over here. but that ain't bad. if you're dropping your phone that often, that's kind of on you. now let's try it with the case. you see we have a regular silicone case on here, pretty standard version. all right. i'm going to start dropping it out of my pocket. screen is fine. this time around -- fall after fall. the phone survives. no problems. no cracks. come here. look at that. everything is fine. hello. say hi, joe. you're on tv. even when it bounces all over the ground. so i keep going. and going and going, dropping it so many times.
finally -- there it is. magic number 32. and the screen is finally cracked. can you see all of that? here it is up close. look how it shattered. spider web cracks all over. but it took 32 times and it was a direct screen hit. not bad. the phone performing well with those common everyday falls. but can it hold up to something even more extreme? we're at the 1,000 museum building in miami. okay. we're two stories up now, basically it would be like dropping your phone from the top of your house. and we have a brand-new iphone xs right out of the box, and we have put the silicone case on it once again. so all right. you guys ready down there? here we go. whoa! all right. let's go see. here we go. oh, my -- the screen is not cracked. the screen is not cracked at all. we're going up again, even higher. this time, we go ten stories up. here we go!
in slo-mo, you can really see the hit. the impact so hard, the case flies off, right there. it's completely shattered, of course. after a ten-story drop. look at that. the phone came completely apart. not bad, though. it took ten stories to do this. >> no surprise there, though. from ten stories. but pretty impressive there. look. jeff rossen reporting there. and obviously, this isn't an exact science. any phone can drop at the wrong or right angle out of the box to completely shatter. the key here is to always use one of those phone cases and as an extra safety layer, you can buy one of those screen protectors for less than 20 bucks online. >> one time we were doing a live shot, and the first kid at the door dropped it and shattered it right then. >> oh. hope he had insurance. >> no, he just bought it. who knows? we'll be right back. i'm dianne feinstein and i approve this message.
"look what she's accomplished... she authored the ban on assault weapons... pushed the desert protection act through congress, and steered billions of federal dollars to california projects such as subway construction and wildfire restoration." "she... played an important role in fighting off ...trump's efforts to kill the affordable care act." california news papers endorse dianne feinstein for us senate.
