are heading towards the east bay. again, it's about the same drive time in either direction. they should be doing lane changings now on the golden gate bridge. overall, though, this drive time in the green down 101. it looks like novato through san rafael and down towards doyle drooe. that west wound 580 commute, like i said, so far in the green, usually one of our first spots to stack up. if you are traveling down eastbound 580, there is that normal this morning. that is your latest kcbs traffic. back to you guys. >> all right, elizabeth. thank you. a delegation of european diplomats is in washington demanding the u.s. limit the surveillance of their leaders. >> i think we have to make a clear distinction between fighting together terrorists but not spieg on friends. >> the white house is now considering ending spying on allied leaders. this comes after revelations the u.s. has been snoopg on german

friday. it involves a huge barge, and in a kpix 5 exclusive, martin says there could be a lot more. >> since kpix 5's story first ran on friday, word has surfaced of this second barge and container structure being built in portland, maine and possibly a third in connecticut. even the executive director of the agency that would issue permits to google to operate a barge here in san francisco bay has heard of multiple vessels. >> as far as we know, this is the only one around san francisco. we, like many other people, have seen the portland, maine newspaper, the picture of something that looks very much like this. larry with the baconer is vags and development committee confirmed it was google whose come to his agency several times about this project, but boog l has been vaguemented. >> when google has visited us, they have been less than specific about what they plan to do with the vessel. >> meanwhile the tech giant's supersecret project remains docked at pressure island.
while it's hard to miss something four stories high, insist it needs more specifics. the project has to be on the water. >> we shouldn't use the bay as a lost opportunity for that which can be done on land because the bay is special, and we need to ensure that whatever this permit is applied for actually fits into what the bay should be used for >> well-placed sources have told kpix 5 google's plan is to use the vessel as a floating mobile marketing and retail center for google glass. google's wearable computer that looks like half a pair of eyeglasses. it would be google's way of out doing apple's sitting retail stores, and google would start by towing the barge from treasure island and docking it at fort mason. one way google might be able to solve its permit requirement is if fort mason isn't the only place it plans to dock the barge. a barge is meant to not only float but be towed. >> but larry goldsban says it's not quite that simple.
>> there's been some speculation that, well, if they only keep it 30 days at fort mason, then move 30 days to oakland, 30 days here, 30 days there, they're not keeping it at any one spot. it is a unique water-only purpose. they couldn't do that on land. >> the question is is it a water-only purpose? we don't know what the purpose of this vessel is and so we don't know if this vessel's purpose is truly maritime related or whether it's not maritime related and so that has to be discovered as part of the permit process, as well. >> and unless google plans to finish construction and then leave the bay all together, goldsban says it still will have to get a permit. allen martin, kpix 5. >> right now, there's no time frame on completing either of those two barges. :56 right now. coming up, the big bay area city that could soon slap a tax on your soda. and it's being called the flight from hell. passengers stuck at a bay area airport for nearly 12 hours. what happened right after the
griego. it took three planes and more than 12 hours before these passengers headed from oakland to utah even took off. >> i feel like people would stop drinking sugary show das. >> the sugary beverage battle is moving to san francisco. the city could soon slap a tax on your soda. >> we are mindful some of these disclosures have caused tension in your relationships. >> white house officials will meet with european union delegates later today after new revelations of the nsa spying on european al lice. from across the bay to around the world, the stories
that matter on kpix 5 news this morning. good morning, everyone. it's tuesday, october 29th. i'm michelle griego. >> i'm frank mallicot. it is 5:00. get you out the door now with a little weather. >> thank you very much but even i don't feel so great at these hours. kind of a transitional day. we've got our high def doppler radar out checking out your skies right now. for the most part, we are going to keep thingings dry outside, but i think as we head throughout the afternoon, we are going to see a few more clouds continuing to linker in our skies and then looks like more sunshine coming our way as high pressure going to be building in over the next couple days. so with that in mind, we've got nicer weather, but still going to be cool outside. temperatures this afternoon probably in the 50s coast side and then maybe some 60s out toward the coastline. little cool to start with right now. 40s and some 50s. not quite as windy, but these numbers running well below the average this time of year, al t
