5:01 am
day forecast, that's coming up. in the meantime, for your traffic, here's elizabeth. >> even hotter today? >> even hotter! >> what's going on! all right. well, it is another "spare the air" day, as well. we already have some bart delays. 15-minute delays right now between the millbrae station heading towards san francisco and the east bay. there is equipment problem on the tracks. that is your only delay. again 16 minutes for bart. otherwise, ace muni caltrain all on time. oracle here north- and southbound traffic fine here. hard to see the northbound traffic but southbound cruising towards hayward and at the bay bridge toll plaza, no delays, no metering lights, and they did just pick up that construction on the upper deck. that's a check of your traffic. back upstairs to you, juliette. >> thank you. a young girl is being treated for gunshot wounds after an attack on her home early this morning. anne makovec joins us from oakland to explain what happened. anne. >> reporter: well, looks like she got caught in some sort of crossfire. the 6-year-old girl was

5:03 am
a link between a power failure and this month's explosion and fire in san bruno. the electric outage in milpitas affected pg&e's natural gas pipeline system just hours before part of it exploded in san bruno's glenview neighborhood. local congress member jackie speier made that announcement yesterday at a news conference near the disaster site. she says it was likely a combination of several factors that led to the blast which killed 7 people and destroyed 37 homes september 9. nine people are homeless this morning and three in the hospital after a fire in bay point. the fire breaking out at about 11:30 last night on the 200 block of madison. firefighters found the house fully engulfed in flames with cars in the driveway on fire, as well. a young man who lived nearby described the flames as large. his grandmother lived in the

5:06 am
his political experience and his track record as governor and mayor of oakland but has to count on people being impressed with that track record. this evening's event is the first of three scheduled debates between the two. all right. time now 5:06. did you feel it? a pair of earthquakes on the hayward fault shook the east bay last night. both quakes had a magnitude 26.0. the first struck just -- of 2.0. the first struck just before 6:00 p.m., the second around san ramon at 11:00 p.m. both too small to cause damage or injuries. let's get another check of our hot, hot weather and our traffic and weather conditions. elizabeth is ready to give us a check on our commute. >> good morning. yeah, let's go out to bart again. we are still dealing with 15- minute delays. they are focused on the millbrae station near sfo. 15-minute delays heading towards the east bay. there is an equipment problem on the tracks so if you are heading towards the airport you should be good to go no delays

but if you are continuing down towards hayward i mentioned earlier that water main break. 880 and 92 near the interchange, apparently one lane is blocked in the area on eastbound 92 coming off of the san mateo bridge. so watch out for that. apparently several feet of water are reported in lanes. and bart is dealing with residual delays about 15 minutes between the millbrae- sfo station and the east bay. so if you are heading towards the airport you're good to go and all other bart trains are on time. ace, muni, caltrain reporting everything on schedule. but it is a "spare the air" day so you're encouraged to use mass transit even though unfortunately it's not free. that's a check of your traffic. here's tracy with your forecast. hey, thanks, elizabeth. i was so hot yesterday, overnight i couldn't sleep. >> i shouldn't be laughing. >> i'm just thinking of you with cold towels sit there is trying to go to sleep but it was definitely a warm night. and it's still warm outside. take a look out the door this morning, this is what you're
5:46 am
going to encounter. temperatures ranging from 55 to 65 degrees and for the bay, up to 68 and again, it's 5:45:00 a.m. for the coastline it is cooler. but partly cloudy conditions are expected for the morning with a few areas of fog. for the afternoon, mostly sunny with mild temperatures along the coast, temperatures in the mid-70s. around the bay hot, up to 92. and inland today 104 degrees in our hottest spots. strong high pressure system still giving us those nice dry winds. that's what's warming us up. more record heat is expected today. and speaking of records, l.a. hit a record yesterday. 113 degrees. well, hey, we're looking at triple digits as well. 103 in morgan hill. 102 in los gatos. 100 degrees in campbell. 100 in cupertino. 95 in mountain view. 96 in palo alto. and 94 in san mateo. just along the coast, today's temperatures in the 70s. east bay another hot one, 101
