5:04 am
documents showing the user safety. speaking exclusively with nbc news, facebook's head of global research denies it puts profits over safety. >> that's contrary to my experience, and contrary to the facts. since 2016 we spent $13 billion on security, and we have 40,000 people working on security. >> in her senate testimony, she's expected to push lawmakers to pass tougher regulations for the social media platforms, and as for that outage that happened yesterday, facebook is blaming that on a faulty configuration change, as they call it, and they said they do not believe that any user data was compromised. we go back to you, laura and marcus. >> do not believe, key words there.

5:10 am
a truck fire. >> yeah, we need a drop in temperature. the garbage truck is past thornton. for a few minutes we saw a traffic break and then a lot of slowing and it started to clear up. traffic can get by in the four remaining lanes traveling north up towards the dumbarton bridge. so that will be there blocking the slow lane. traffic alert called because there were other folks calling from the other side of the wall where the homes are asking if they were safe, and we believe they are, and there's some sort of compressed gas on the truck but they are letting it burn out. back to you. >> thanks, mike. it's 5:10. tomorrow is the fourth annual california clean air day. coming up next on "today in the bay" in our climate in crisis series, a look at what you can

5:18 am
>> i'm going to post about a garbage truck on fire. let's take you out to the maps. over here towards fremont, it sounds dramatic. a garbage truck on fire, and fire trucks are there. you notice very little slowing, just a tad bit. there are apartments on the other side of the barrier off the highway there. this is thornton, central avenue and getting off the newark as well, and folks called in to say, we smell smoke, are we safe? chp says yes, they believe the compressed gas is almost gone. mild slowing because we have four lanes of traffic, and as the volume builds, and if they don't clear that quickly it could be a problem, because they need the right sized tow truck.
5:19 am
your longer drive coming out of antioch in through concord, that's fine for highway 4. highway 34, no slowing here. there's a crash but it's going away from the bay bridge. a clear view right now. kari, a clear drive but i see low clouds hovering around that spot and in the city. yeah, we are all clear inland. we have been dealing with the unhealthy air quality at times, especially inland. santa clara valley looking at moderate air quality, but these numbers with the pleasure of particulate matter, they are looking good. the 7-day forecast is coming up at the bottom of the screen. some spots are dropping about ten degrees compared to yesterday, reaching 79 in los gatos. for the east bay, up to 80 in walnut creek. 74 in hayward. 71 in san mateo.
