yesterday. one plane exploding in a fire ball. nbc bay area's chris sanchez is near that crash site breaking down the details. what are investigators saying this midday? >> reporter: so we have a couple of new developments, marcus. the santa cruz sheriff now confirm all three people on board the two planes did die in that crash. they are not releasing their identities. they have to be identified and their next of kin has to be notified. also this morning, the ntsb is here with investigators. you will see them here behind me. the national transportation safety board investigators, they have been taking measurements, looking at the pieces of the wreckage, trying to piece together what happened when these two planes crashed. we expect that they will be answering questions within the next half-hour or so and of course we have a lot of questions for them. this is new video of what the ntsb investigators have been doing. taking those measurements, as i said, and trying to put together the debris field now that the
victim have been extricated. according to the faa, one person was on board a single engine cessna 152. and two people were on board a twin engine cessna 340. the two planes crashed into each other as the pilots were attempting to land just before 3:00 yesterday afternoon. so the conditions, very similar to what you're seeing here today. the smaller cessna crashed near the perimeter of the airport. the bigger one continued to cross the airport and crashed into a hangar. here's what it looked like from the nearby surveillance camera. you see smoke. you see some flames there in the corner. this morning, we talked with a woman who stopped by to drop off flowers because she expects that in this community, she will likely know the people who died. >> the wife of the pilot is something that affects us. we are a small community. and everybody knows them. i wanted to pay my respects. >> watsonville municipal airport is a small uncontrolled airport.
that is, it has no control tower so it is up to the pilots themselves to clear for landing. there are recordings of those conversations happening right before the crash happened. we have not yet gotten our hands on them. while there is a neighborhood just across the street from where we're standing, directly across the street, nobody on the ground was hurt. so that is the good news. the bad news is, that we can now confirm that three people did die on board those two planes. we'll be asking the ntsb questions sometime between 11:30 and 12:00. if we're on the air, we'll bring that to you. if we're not, we'll post it online and on our social media platforms as well. you can find that at nbcbayarea.com. nbc bay area news. >> i'm sure this will be a lengthy investigation. thank you. happening today, the governor's office is demanding a response from the city of oakland. this is over the handling of a large homeless encampment. up to there hundred people are living in the wood street camp.
this is on caltrans property on 880 in oakland. critics point out that it has been the scene of several recent fires and the judge held up a plan to clear it out. housing has not been made available to those living there. this is a problem, according to the governor's office. the city has received nearly $5 million in grant money for that very issue. yesterday the governor's office sent a scathing letter to oakland city attorney, saying that the city has neglected its responsibility. here's a response from the oakland city mayor, libby schaaf. >> we are working hard to use the grant exactly the way we promised, to house the people at wood street. >> the state asking for a response by the end of the day today. and said it is possible that grant money could be pulled. new at 11:00, within the past hour, the san francisco city member announcing new funding to help the bay area's aapi community. the $3.5 million commitment is
aimed at expanding and improving resources for seniors living in the city's sunset district. that money will go toward renovating the south sunset play ground clubhouse and creating a new community center. for aapi seniors. the news comes as at least two seniors were attacked in san francisco over the last three weeks which he says highlights the need for the safe space. >> the last couple years, we've been hearing about seniors getting attacked at the bus stops. seniors getting attacked downtown in chinatown. we just had a few attacks the last couple weeks which was horrific. this is a safe space for seniors. >> the senior population growing very quickly. ting says by 2030, one-third of all san francisco residents will be 60 years or older, and about half of those seniors will be asian-american. moving you forward this midday on covid testing, and your at-home test kits, you may want to wait a second before
