at the oak street exit and kpix 5's kiet do is on the scene. he joins us now with the very latest. kiet. >> reporter: good morning, frank. let's take a look at the scene out here. the traffic that you see heading towards us in our direction, that is 880 southbound just south of oak street. they have the far right lane open. it looks like the street sweepers are just finishing up the last bit of work here as they clear out some of the debris from the accident that happened today. now, just before 1:00 this morning, a bmw was heading northbound just south of oak street in excess of 100 miles when it hit a semi truck sending it dhaka careening into the air and hit a honda on the other side of the freeway. there was a male driver in each vehicle, both killed. the cars were totaled. it took chp and the crews sometime to cut out the bodies. the coroner removed the remains and the street sweepers are
just getting ready to open up here. we have heard reports of sometime between 4:30 and 5:00 so it looks like they are still finishing it up. but we'll keep an eye on this. looks like they are opening up a couple of more lanes of the freeway so gene a double fatal accident -- so again, a double fatal accident in oakland had the potential to really snarl the traffic but looks like chp is getting the upper hand on it. as kiet mentioned, still no official eto. they had hoped by 5:00 but that deadline is passed. three of four lanes are closed southbound. the accident happened around 16th. the lanes are blocked between broadway and 16th so we are seeing good sized delays from downtown oakland. if you want an alternate, 580 probably the best bet. southbound nimitz freeway, right now up to 21 minutes between the maze and 238. it hasn't changed much in the
last 10, 15 minutes. but if they re-open lanes, that will help the commute across that stretch of freeway. bart is also another great option. so far, they got all trains on time. that is your latest "kcbs traffic" update. here's lawrence with the weather. >> go. go. go. >> first developing right now, as many as 40 tornadoes ripped through the midwest killing at least 6 people and injuring dozens more and now kpix 5 meteorologist lawrence karnow is here with more on yesterday's deadly storms. >> yeah, guys. terrible storms breaking out across the midwest. this is something more typically that you would see in springtime where you have that big transition of temperatures as we move into spring but now we have seen a secondary match in the other direction and we have storms rolling across the country. looks like now they are headed toward the eastern seaboard. still could break out into severe weather but doesn't look like conditions are as ripe as yesterday. still, the storms were very scary and very deadly across
the midwest. >> reporter: this town of about 10,000 people nearly destroyed as the storm ripped through washington illinois. >> a lot of people have a pile of rubble. i don't have anything. my whole -- it's gone! i don't know where it went! >> reporter: taken away by this tornado. the man recording this video prays as the twister engulfs houses not far from his. illinois emergency management says in just two communities the storms destroyed at least 70 homes. rescuers worked sunday to reach people trapped under the rubble hiding in their basements. >> did sound like a freight train. we heard it. and i looked over my backwoods, i saw a debris field coming at me. >> reporter: mid broadcast in peoria, these news anchors had to cut their coverage and evacuate. >> we need to take shelter right now. >> we do. >> we need to go off the air. we'll be back when we can. >> reporter: in lebanon, indiana, the wind flipped a car into the patio of the starbucks and blew out the windows of the building. the high winds from st. louis
to wisconsin to ohio knocked out power for hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses. most notably, 390,000 in michigan alone. for the numerous people who have lost their homes, the focus now will be on recovering what they can and rebuilding. and this is a hard time of year for this to happen, of course, because now the colder temperatures a lot of these folks are without homes, without power, it is going to be a very, very messy time for them to clean everything up. going to take some time. >> thank you, lawrence. the deadly weather had an impact on travel across the country, as well. we talked with some airline passengers who landed at sfo after being delayed. >> we got caught as the storm was coming in so we had to sit on the runway for about 45 minutes. >> supposed to be in hawaii hours ago so we are going to make the best of it. my fiancee has never been to san francisco. >> some passengers tell us they were delayed by eight hours or more because of all that bad
weather. in the philippines, some communities hit hard by typhoon haiyan appear to be shifting from survival mode to early recovery. but every time the government releases new numbers, the disaster just seems to get worse. nearly 4,000 people are confirmed dead, almost 1600 are missing, more than 18,000 people are injured, and more than 4 million have been displaced and are in need of food, shelter and water. and generosity in the bay area is not letting up as people continue to donate food and supplies to help survivors of the typhoon. one of the biggest volunteer events was yesterday in san jose. the national federation of filipino-americans association held a drive at the north side community center. volunteered collected food, clothing and other items. >> i know we have had a lot of drives this week and last week. that needs to keep going and this is our part to add one
more drop-off place for folks ready to donate. >> congressman mike honda of campbell was among many dignitaries at the event. he brought t-shirts. the latest figures show more than 4 million survivors of the typhoon have been displaced. happening today, growing concern about another bay area transit strike now that bart says a contract agreement contains a clause that should not have been included. kpix 5 reporter cate caugiran joins you live from walnut creek with details on a new round of negotiations all set to begin today. here we go again, cate. >> reporter: here we go again is right, frank. you know, you're right. the negotiations between bart and its unions are set for today and commuters more than any other key player in this dispute are hoping that today's session is not like ones we have seen in the past because as far as this new contract is concerned, we heard the two sides agreed on it. the unions ratified it but when it came down to that bart management vote, a mysterious provision is now putting a stop to implementing the new contract. the provision allows bart workers to take 6 weeks paid
family leave and bart management says it's a clause that could cost the transit agency an extra $44 million over four years. >> some miscommunications and misunderstandings between staff and contracted parties resulted in this inadvertently being typed into the ta. >> we are absolutely disappointed, disgusted and put off by the board's actions. >> reporter: the unions say it's closer to 5 million and the provision was meant to be included and there is no word if the unions are considering another strike. after the two sides meet today we do know that the bart board will meet thursday to consider its next move. live from walnut creek, bart, back to you in the studio. >> 5:07. bart has the option of absorbing the could see or offering the unions something in exchange. and there's no word on any movement regarding the ac transit's labor situation. unions and management are about
halfway through their 60-day cooling-off period ordered by governor brown. ac transit mainly serves alameda and contra costa counties. san francisco police are trying to find a hit-and-run driver who injured a bicyclist about 7:00 last night at 7th and mission. there is no information on the condition of the bicyclist. it was a white van that hit the bike rider. the van probably has front end damage and possibly a shattered window. san francisco police are also searching for a killer. two women were shot inside a car in a parking lot at 6th and jesse south of market. it was a little after 2 a.m. yesterday. one of the women was killed. the victim's name hasn't been released. doppler going to be busy? >> finally. looks like we have a chance of showers in the bay area, not today. cloudy skies later on. but yeah, looks like things starting out quietly just
partly cloudy skies now. chilly in spots though. hi-def doppler radar looking for rain but none just yet. i think by this time tomorrow morning we'll probably be talking about rain at least in the north bay. here we go. you can see the cold front off the coastline. it is going to be a slow mover getting here. we'll see clouds on the increase throughout the day today. out the door we go, partly cloudy skies over the bay right now. the temperatures getting cold especially in the north bay valleys, just above freezing at 33 degrees in santa rosa right now, 44 livermore, 50 in san francisco. temperatures this afternoon will be cooler. plan on highs only in the 60s. 50s at the coastline. and low 60s inside the bay. we'll have more on the prospects for rain coming up in a couple of minutes. back to you. >> thank you. 5:09. nurses at the university of california student health facilities and the uc hospitals won't be part of a one-day strike wednesday. those nurses have a tentative contract agreement that calls for a 4% raise each year through 2017.
other workers are expected to strike wednesday. tonight palo alto is expected to consider expanding its outdoor smoking ban. earlier this year smoking was banned in parks and within 25 feet of building entrances. now city council members want to include the downtown area and california avenue. a memo says extending the ban would reduce secondhand smoke and litter. >> it's safer for me and people with kids who can be affected by secondhand smoke in public. >> the next step would be to send the proposal to committee. vallejo high school may be forced to get a new mascot. the school may be asked to drop the school name apache. it's been the name for decades but some indians find it offensive. the recommendation will be presented to the vallejo city unified school district board at a meeting on wednesday. tomorrow voters in the town of sonoma will decide whether
to put limits on big hotels. measure b would put a 25-room limit on new hotels and prohibit existing hotels from expanding beyond 25 rooms. supporters say it would preserve sonoma's small town character. opponents say it would damage sonoma's reputation as a tourist destination. currently five sonoma hotels with 26 rooms or more, the largest has 182. time now 5:11. a rare meningitis outbreak hits a school. >> a ban falling from the upper deck at a buffalo bills game and -- a fan falling from the upper deck at a buffalo bills game and he survives. caught on cam. >> a new mission to mars nasa's goal behind this latest trip. ,, ,,,,

[ laughter ] we have a pretty serious situation going on in oakland. only one lane is open right now the far right lane southbound
880 on the nimitz freeway. you a double fatal collision overnight. sweepers are on the scene and emergency crews. the car hit a big rig went over the center divide and hit another car head on in the southbound lanes. let's check the maps and live traffic sensors to show you gridlock, right around 980 interchange. so avoid this. traffic is slow. speeds below 25 miles an hour. chp says that big rigs can use 580 until 6:00 this morning. so it sounds like they expect those lanes to be closed a little while longer. in the meantime, the drive time southbound 880 the maze to 238 still around 21 minutes so bart is also another good option. we checked in with them, so far all trains including those through oakland are on time. here's a look at the bay
bridge. the commute hasn't started at the toll plaza, no big problems into san francisco. westbound 580 looks good so far but just seeing a few tapping of the brake lights as you leave tracy towards the altamont pass. that's your also "kcbs traffic." for your forecast, a rainy one, here's lawrence. >> got some showers in the forecast. think we'll hold off on that today. right now our hi-def doppler radar is checking out your skies. so far, it is clear of any rain but we have a couple of clouds out there. in fact, some fog showing up in the napa and santa rosa area this morning so watch out for that early on. temperature-wise a little chilly in spots. numbers in the 30s, 40s and 50s. partly cloudy skies. this afternoon, we are going to see some cooler temperatures maybe some mid-60s but increasing clouds late in the day. you will see temperatures in the 50s at the coast and low 60s inside the bay. high pressure scooting out of the way here and you have the cold front off the coastline. going to take 24 hours before we really see it move onshore to bring rain. so with that in mind, rain arriving early tomorrow morning
probably about the time we'll be looking at doppler radar with showers on the monitor. all right. throughout the day today, we are going to see an increase in some of the clouds from the cold front approaching the bay area but wait until tomorrow morning, this is 7 a.m. tomorrow morning we'll see rainfall. then unsettled through tuesday and maybe some leftover showers right into wednesday, as well. so with that in mind, we have the storm moving in, not going to be the biggest one we have ever seen, maybe a 10th inch in pacifica, quarter inch in san francisco and the further north you go the more you get. maybe as much as an inch of rain towards santa rosa. so around the bay area, dry today, 50s and 60s, mid-60s in the warmest spots. and then looking out over the next couple of days, haven't seen much of this but a chance of showers on tuesday and wednesday. dry weather thursday. by the weekend, offshore winds kick in those temperatures back up into the low 70s inland.
>> wow. >> so one extreme to another. >> looks like it. all right, lawrence. thanks. 5:18 now. a colorado mine is closed this morning after two workers died in a mining accident yesterday. it appears the employees died from carbon monoxide poisoning. 20 others were injured. >> some of miners are trying to save the others and had to leave. >> investigators are trying to figure out what may have caused the gas leak. they have ruled out an explosion and mine collapse as the cause. some terrifying moments in yesterday's buffalo bills-new york jets game when a man fell from the stadium's third deck and lands on a filo fan below. the accident was captured on cell phone video. the man landed on the second deck. he suffered a shoulder injury. one sustained a head injury.
both are expected to be okay. an emergency vaccine might be brought to the united states to fight a health problem at one of the ivy league colleges. princeton university officials are considering whether to offer students a vaccine that's available in europe and australia. seven people are diagnosed with meningitis b at princeton. the only vaccine for the disease bexsero is the only one for the disease. >> i'm confident it will work. i probably wouldn't get it though. i'm not too worried about the outbreak. so if princeton starts vaccinating students, i wouldn't be first in line. >> the fda says the cdc may import it because of the outbreak because of the symptoms. we have a video coming up. >> i'm dennis o'donnell. coming up, the raiders do they
this play, the jags defensive end comes up with an unexpected prize. a handful of runningback andre ellington's hair. bab bins shows us the locks and then throws them to the turf. ouch. good morning, everybody. the last time the 49ers were in new orleans, it was super bowl 47. san francisco hoping for a better result yesterday. and it was a superdome that was loud all day for colin kaepernick who struggled. but down 14-10, 3rd quarter he has vernon davis and the 49ers go up by three. then tied at 20 under a minute to go, drew brees marches new orleans into field goal rain. hartley up and good. the saints win 23-20. the 49ers have lost two straight, they are now 6-4. raiders texans, the bushes

it hit a truck, then flipped over the center divider, hit another car and both drivers were killed. the chp had to use the "jaws of life" to remove the drivers. the street sweepers are removing debris. the far light rain is open at this hour. we are seeing a lot of movement with these directional trucks and street sweepers. so i'll let you know when it opens back up. in oakland, kiet do, kpix 5. i know a lot of people that livedded behind me that got hit the worst were at church. the reaction when they saw their houses for the first time it was really heartbreaking. >> a heartbreaking sunday in the midwest. violent weather ripped through several states. at least 6 people are dead from the storms all of them in illinois. entire neighborhoods disappeared when the storms
roared through the midwest. you're looking live at new minden, illinois. the search for victims and survivors continues this morning. cbs news reporter bigad shaban joins us from one of the hardest hit communities, washington illinois. only residents and emergency workers are being allowed into the town today. >> reporter: michelle, good to be with you. as the sun came up through washington, it's revealing some of the destruction just one of those tornadoes left behind. this used to be an automotive shop. here's a broken seatbelt we found that came from one of the nearby vehicles or one of the store shelves. debris stretches down the block. reporter: firefighters in washington, illinois, searched through rubble looking for survivors of a massive tornado that leveled the town. spray-painted xs signify a car or home has been searched and is clear. >> go, go, go. >> reporter: this was just one
of an estimated 80 twisters reported in the midwest sunday. most were in illinois. michael perdun saw a twisted headed for his home. >> grabbed my daughter and ran, everybody is safe. the rest is replaceable. >> reporter: hundreds of homes were destroyed and officials instituted a dusk-to-dawn curfew because of gas leaks and downed power lines. the same tornado that hit washington also struck the town of pekin 18 miles away. jeff lehman says he barely escaped. >> my son said, there it is. and i mean, in a matter of seconds we turned around and it was right on top of us. we hustled in the house and before we knew it, it was gone. it was that fast. >> reporter: the national weather service estimates a tornado with winds of 166 miles per hour hit the town of new minden, illinois. an elderly man and his sister died when the twister hit their farmhouse. heavy rain, hail and high winds
contributed to damage in at least 7 states. illinois certainly saw the brunt of those storms but because of poor cell service and blocked roads, it's unclear how many people may have been injured and whether that death toll, michelle, might continue to rise. >> bigad, you can see all that debris right behind you. describe the instruction where you're standing. >> reporter: well, it's hard to imagine what this actually used to be. just behind this area right here, were a number of mobile home parks that were demolished and destroyed. but as you might imagine, people right now are trying to figure out how to recover and what to do next. >> all right. bigad shaban live in washington, illinois, thank you. a deadly weather chased the news anchors out of their studio at a tv station in peoria, illinois yesterday. they were warning viewers to take shelter when they discovered that they had better
take cover, too. >> i'm hearing things right now, chuck. i think we, uhm, we may need to take shelter right now. >> yes. >> ourselves. >> we do. >> we need to go off the air. we'll be back when we can. >> right. we'll be right back. >> there you go. the tv station in peoria did make it through the storm okay. but there's still a threat of severe weather. and kind of late in the season for this, isn't it? >> it is. usually we'll get something like this or something terrible like this happening more in spring but this one kind of a secondary round of the tornadoes developing outside and, well, looks like we're not done with the severe weather just yet. you can see that fierce line of thunderstorms on our doppler radar. look at all reds and orange as that line stretches all the way across st. louis down into missouri and, well, making its way across toward the eastern seaboard but you can see, kind of losing some of the punch with the storm system but still a lot of yellows and some oranges to the north. so we're not done with the storm system just yet. one last gasp today before it makes its way out to the atlantic. in the meantime, a cold
front approaching the west coast. here it is, see those clouds in the bay area will be increasing throughout the bay area today. chilly in spots. thick fog in the north bay valleys. 39 napa. 40s and 50s elsewhere. by the afternoon, it's going to be cool. we are seeing some temperatures running below average into the afternoon. plan on about 64 degrees in livermore. 59 in san francisco. and checking in at 62, some partly cloudy skies in san jose. all right.let's check your "kcbs traffic" with elizabeth. >> thanks, lawrence. in oakland they just reopened all lanes within the last few minutes. of course, the fatal collision we have been watching since very early this morning. southbound 880 by 16th, now they have been able to re-open the remaining three lanes. it is taking a while though for traffic to recover. right here past the accident scene, it looks okay. but let's get a check of our maps and our live traffic sensors and you will notice still gridlock it looks like still backed up in the 980
interchange so it may take a while to recover. it took a long time for this accident to completely clear because it was a pretty horrific crash with two people killed. there was a lot of debris in the road. so again southbound 880 is going to be slow-and-go for a while even though all lanes are open. in fact, it's up to a half hour right now between the maze and 238. a live look at the bay bridge toll plaza, the delays are just beginning in the far right cash lanes. that's your "kcbs traffic." back to you. >> thank you. bart is going back to the bargaining table today again with unions that represent the transit agency workers. the two sides will try to work out a problem with the contract deals that were already agreed upon by negotiators on both sides. bart's board won't sign off on it. they say a clause that would allow workers six weeks of paid family leave mistakenly made it into those new contracts. they say the clause will cost bart an extra $44 million over four years. the unions say it's closer to 5 million an insist it was no mistake. also today state lawmakers
will try to figure out how to better regulate and enforce policies on pg&e and other utilities. senate subcommittees on gas and electric infrastructure safety will hold a hearing today at 10:00 at the milton marks conference center in san francisco. a man was shot and killed overnight in san jose. officers say it happened around 3:00 this morning on golden rain drive near monterey road. the victim died at the scene. officers are not releasing any information. some bay area news. a ceremony is planned for 11 a.m. at oakland's evergreen cemetery to honor those who died in the 1978 jonestown massacre in guyana. 35 years ago today, more than 900 people were convinced to consume a poison-laced grape flavored drink. the victims were member of the people's temple, a san francisco-based cult. it could be the biggest convention this year in san francisco. salesforce.com is hosting its

city fathers tried to build a road with her $100,000. but her friends, luckily, and others said, well, i think she wanted something different and unique. >> reporter: in 1933, they settled on coit tower. but after 80 years of wear and tear, this landmark needs some work. through the next five months crews will fix cracks on the outside walls and repair windows to keep out moisture. inside they will put up new protective barriers and artists will touch up what time has torn away. these art-deco frescoes were the first publicly sponsored art in the country and those who love the tower hope to keep them intact. >> with the works of art it's also become a museum, and that's really what in part has motivated all of us to push the city harder to treat it like a museum. >> reporter: so this renovation is going to cost $1.7 million. that money was approved through last year's measure b. the hope is if everything goes according to plan to open coit tower back up in the spring. live in san francisco, mark
