5:01 am
bridge are good. they should have just picked up the construction that was blocking a couple of lanes on the upper deck. southbound 287th on-ramp closed but still looks good heading out of downtown. that's your traffic. all right, tracy, the pressure is on. >> the heat is on! i wish. no, not yet. we still have cloudy conditions and this morning quite a bit of drizzle out there for the coast and the bay. it is another gloomy start to the day as you head out the door. for your afternoon. how about this? so, conditions today sunshine inland, mid-80s. a few breaks of sunshine around the bay. not a lot of breaks yesterday. but mid-60s expected. and the lower 60s for the coast. and we will begin with a gradual warmup to upper 80s and then you will see the 90s coming in by the weekend. and then we are holding on, sunday, monday and tuesday, mid- 90s, yeah, near 70 around the bay. and temperatures along the coastline will warm up maybe lower to the mid-60s but i'm really excited about the 90s.
5:02 am

5:03 am

5:04 am
kiet do has more. reporter: one of the largest mosques in the south bay doesn't even look like a mosque. but that will soon change. the muslim community association is building a two- story decorative facade on one side of the building but that's not the issue, this is, a minaret, a tower that with would stand nearly 64 feet tall. mosque leaders want to build one as a symbol of islam. you are very careful not to use the word eyesore, right? >> did i not use the word eyesore. i used the word architectural curiosity. >> reporter: he says it wouldn't go well with an industrial building or the neighborhood for that matter. the city has approved preliminary plans for the minaret and scott is appealing the decision. he says such a tall tower would attract more worshippers and make traffic and parking problems worse. >> i think a 63-foot minaret tower would in some ways serve
5:05 am
as an advertisement and so, you know, it probably would be seen by more people from a further distance. >> reporter: this all comes in the wake of a recent controversy near ground zero in new york about the construction of a mosque just blocks away from where the twin towers once stood. scott says he understands it's a sensitive topic. what do you say to somebody who see this is story and says that this is a guy who just doesn't like mosques that he is perhaps intolerant? >> i would invite anyone who has that point of view to come out here and look at the facility, number one, and make a judgment for themselves. >> reporter: the mosque's board of directors did not return our phone calls despite repeated attempts. through a spokesman they said they would have more at a planning commission meeting wednesday night. >> and that was kiet do reporting. a victory for bank customers furious about overdraft fees. a federal judge in san francisco ordered wells fargo pay more than $200 million to
5:06 am
compensate customers for excessive overdraft fees. the judge said the bank's way of processing transactions from largest to smallest caused a lot of customers to rack up the maximum number of fees. most banks process their transactions the same way, but wells fargo is the only bank affected by this ruling. wells says it is disappointed by the decision and plans to appeal. power is back on for thousands of people in marin county left in the dark for hours last night. pg&e says it was equipment failure that caused the outage. more than 13,000 people in novato were without power for about five hours. electricity, though, came back on just after midnight. 5:06. coming up trying to piece together what caused the plane carrying former senator ted stevens to crash in alaska. also ahead, an increase in the number of people going to the emergency room. who is going to the e.r. the most. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

[ applause and cheers ] >> stevens narrowly lost his last bid for re-election just a week after he was convicted in a federal corruption trial in 2008. those charges were later dropped. ironically, stevens survived a 1978 plane crash that killed 7 people including his first wife. a lot more people are using hospital emergency rooms these days. uc-san francisco researchers found the increase in e.r. visits was twice what they expected based on population growth. emergency room visits in the u.s. were up 23% from 1997 to 2007. that study found it was adults on medicaid who made the difference. the "san francisco chronicle" reports the reason for that appears to be relatively low reimbursement rates for patients on medicare. salinas-based fresh express recalling nearly 3,000 cases of
5:11 am
salad because of a possible health risk. the recalled product is known as the veggie lovers salad. it has an expiration day of the august 10 and a products code of i208. that information can be found in the upper right-hand corner of the package. fresh express says there are no reports of illnesses connected to the product but random testing in ohio found one package that had bacteria that could make people sick. we received a lot of comments from viewers on the story on the jetblue flight attendant who quit his job by cursing, grabbing beer and sliding down the emergency chute of his plane saying, i'm done. some viewers depended him by saying people dealing with the public have to put one a lot. so our question of the day to you, what is the rudest behavior you have ever seen in public? think about it. send your responses to we're also on facebook and twitter.

here's a look at some of the stories we are following this morning: good morning. let's go down to the south bay because that's where we have a little roadwork blocking some lanes. first put up the little text box there, you will notice some of the on-ramps are blocked onto southbound 280. the 7th and 10th, 11th street on-ramps are closed until 6:00 a.m. for that roadwork. there's also still some roadwork for that stretch of 101 between 880 and bernal. sounds like various lanes are blocked in both directions until 6:00 this morning. you can see it's very slow going there as you head up those northbound lanes of 101 into downtown san jose. so watch out for that. again, most of this roadwork will be wrapped up in the next 45 minks.
5:16 am
280 is quiet on the main lines. freeway heading out of downtown close to the 880 interchange. your commute along the peninsula, nice and light on 101 and 280 looks good all the way into san francisco. we have a camera here, some of the sensors updating so it looks good from benicia into martinez. there is a live look at traffic moving across the span. and from there we'll go check the silicon valley ride. westbound 237 moving fine as you head out of westbound 237 nice and light this morning heading towards mountain view and mass transit is all running on time. that is your traffic. for your forecast, here's tracy. >> hey, thanks, elizabeth. this morning we have drizzle or light rainfall, in the forecast for this morning for the coastline, also for the bay. some low clouds inland this

5:24 am
