lesbians. >> the question is removing the specter that's been raised of discrimination and denial of service facilities, some other things so that's what we're focusing on. >> lawmakers could vote today to amend the law. rugby is a fast growing sport here in the united states especially since it will be reintroduced in the olympics next year. the first time since 1924. some toddlers in benicia and vallejo are learning how to play. st. dominic's elementary school is this week's "cool school." reporter: rugby isn't a support we often see in the u.s. >> ready, yeah! >> reporter: it's very physical and gets a little rough sometimes. but these tots are having loads of fun learning how to play. >> yeah! >> it's so much fun.

breezy today but not as windy as it has been the past 48 hours. northwest winds 10 to 15 miles per hour. this is the area of low pressure. it's a first in the series of weak impulses stacked up out there. this promises to bring us at least a good chance of rain showers on easter afternoon in the north bay. until then, 70 central valley. 69 mendocino. warmer today in the greater lake tahoe area in the low 50s. it's currently in the 20s. temperatures in the 60s and the 70s today. and the breeze will usher the pollen around again, blame it on the al deck, ash and juniper -- on the alder, ash and juniper. we call for a good chance of rain showers sunday, monday and tuesday. make it a great day! all right, roberta, thank you. time now is 6:20. a reason to celebrate today for employees of the nation's biggest

the city of san jose is in mourning. i'm kiet do with details about the upcoming funeral of officer michael brown. the outrage over religious freedom laws appears to be working. what changes we're likely to see. >> rain is back in the forecast on easter. >> we have been searching for the slowest travel times around the bay area. we think we found it. highway 4. we'll show you why coming up. good morning, everyone. thursday april 2. i'm frank mallicoat. >> i'm michelle griego. time now is 6:30. an early-morning earthquake woke up people in the east bay. anne makovec is live near the epicenter. she joins us from san ramon. anne. >> reporter: the 3.6, relatively small but this is a generally quiet part of the calaveras fault. and this quake hit just after midnight 12:06. you can see the epicenter there on the map on your screen. it was just northwest of san
ramon and over 3,000 people felt it according to the usgs website. we spoke with some of them this morning. >> so i was awake at 12:00 and all of a sudden i heard a noise and i felt a shake. my girlfriend woke up at the same time. and we thought something fell. it was like a big shake. it was just, you know, subtle. >> reporter: social media lit up right after that quake. one of our producers brad bellstock tweeted, well, that was fun, the few seconds it lasted, had one glass get knocked on the floor from that earthquake. and sandy kay tweeted everyone is freaking out over the earthquake in san ramon. man up, east bay! it was only a 3.5. we don't trip if it's under 4. it was a 3.6, though. the group that crunches earthquake data did predict an 11% chance of a magnitude 6.7 or larger on this quake over the next two decades. of course, with all this earthquake data, you can only
wait and see. live in san ramon, anne makevoc, kpix 5. police officers from all over north america are in san jose today for the funeral of officer michael brown who died in the line of duty last week. our elizabeth wenger will have the very latest on the procession, the funeral procession and road closures. kiet do reports from san jose police headquarters. >> reporter: within this hour we'll see a display of professionalism and respect when comes from the region will begin patrolling this city as san jose police officers attend the funeral of officer michael brown. we are told that these law enforcement officers will be riding two-man, one of them will be driving, the other one will be navigating these unfamiliar streets. when these officers arrive, this is what they will see, a memorial that grows larger by the day now stretching more than 40 feet long flooded with children's letters, flowers and candles and officers have been returning to this memorial while off duty often bringing with them their families. they told me that they are
shocked by all this. deeply touched by the public outpouring of support. now, this was the scene yesterday at s.a.p. center where crews sent the day setting up for the funeral. they are expecting anywhere from 4,000 to 7,000 people to attend today. throughout this entire week, stories are emerging of officer michael johnson's warmth and kindness and dedication of service. this woman's son was steered away from a life of gangs. angela tirado said he spoke with her son once and helped steer him away interest a life with gangs. he set your son on the right path? >> yes, he did. >> reporter: what do you think it would have been like if your son hadn't met michael johnson? >> i don't think he would be as good of a person that he is today if he hadn't have. >> reporter: and by the way, angela tirado is singing amazing grace at the funeral starting at 10 a.m. we have made a map for folks to help avoid some of the hot spots midday. so the motorcade starts in los
gatos along north santa cruz avenue at the funeral home at 10:00. it will pass north through downtown campbell on winchester stevens creek boulevard through some of the busier streets before arriving in downtown san jose at s.a.p. center. expect rolling closures and traffic tie-ups so mass transit is encouraged. caltrans has a station across from the s.a.p. center. it's passing through busy intersections anyway by santana row, valley fair, so again most of the traffic tie-ups will be midday between 10 and 1:00. frank and michelle, back to you guys. >> thank you. and we'll have live coverage. funeral procession and services starting at 10 a.m. on kpix 5 and cbssf.com. it's a historic move during a historically dry time. for the first time ever in california, the governor is ordering mandatory water reductions statewide. that's because as you can tell from this map, most of the state is in an extreme or
exceptional drought situation. governor brown made the announcement yesterday at echo summit in the sierra. for the first time in 75 years, there was no snow for the early april measurement. the melting snow is supposed to fill the state's rivers and reservoirs. >> we're in an historic drought and that demands unprecedented action. >> that unprecedented action calls for a 25% statewide reduction in urban water use compared with 2013 levels. it also includes a plan to replant lawns with landscapes that don't need much water. golf courses, cemeteries and campuses will have to reduce water use. and governor brown is asking water agencies to raise rates to discourage waste. you can find more drought- saving tips on cbssf.com/drought. 6:35. a check of weather now. i guess we're going to get a little relief sunday into monday. >> yeah. we're sure hoping if everything stays on course today and kudos
to the governor for telling the entire state needs to conserve water. reservoirs across the northern portions of california have a surplus of water in comparison to last year. and you can say it's all because of that hefty rainfall total we received in december and some earlier runoff from what snow we had. so we have some in the bucket. but we certainly need to conserve and we're hopping for more rain on the way. right now, it's a seamless sky. it's cloudless temperature-wise 40s and 50s. the winds have been dialing back. we'll increase later today out of the northwest 10 to 15. we have temperatures in the 60s along the coast today. it will be warmer today than yesterday. 73 degrees in morgan hill. temperatures topping off in low to mid-70s east of the bay, as well. 70 around vallejo, benicia and martinez. 60s around the north bay coast side to 72 in sonoma. we have that rain forecast that's coming up in just about 6 minutes from now.
out the door, i mentioned highway 4 being really slow. it's because of a crash that's quickly cleared to the right- hand shoulder barely blocking a lane approaching will bow pass but it damaged the commute through pittsburg-bay point and it's always slow in antioch at this time of the morning anyway. here's a look down the south bay just getting word of a new wreck a hit-and-run approaching old oakland road on 101. the altamont pass got backed up. 27 minutes in the red heavy through the livermore valley, as well. and then slow-and-go as you make your way you to the dublin interchange. that wreck approaching the dublin interchange is clear to the right-hand shoulder. a gorgeous view of the sun coming up over the golden gate bridge. traffic busier right now out of sausalito but so far problem- free for your marin county drive. that is "kcbs traffic." back to you guys. >> all right. thank you, elizabeth. one of the notorious chowchilla kidnappers may get out of jail soon. the parole board has granted james schoenfeld parole. he and his brother and another
man hijacked a school bus in 1976. they took the 26 children on board along with the bus driver hostage. they held them captive in an underground bunker near livermore. the hostages dug their way out to freedom and the men were caught and sent to prison. not all the victims think schoenfeld should stay in jail. >> every victim is affected differently by this event. and each one of them is coping in a different way. and i am happy and proud to help them each through their journey. >> many victims say they still have fear and anxiety stemming from the childhood trauma but some say they forgive him and he paid his dues. 6:38 now. state lawmakers are making adjustments to the religious freedom bill in indiana and arkansas. the bills were touted as a way to ensure people could conduct business based on their religious beliefs but critics say it could pave the way for discrimination against gays and
lesbians. the president of kenya is deploying security forces after gunmen killed 15 people and took hostages. about 9 hours ago gunmen went into a university and started shooting. police have the building surrounded. but the gunmen have hostages with them. investigators believe the attackers are a somali us lambic extremist group. four workers were killed and two others have life- threatening injuries. the result of an explosion and fire on an oil platform in the gulf of mexico. 300 other workers managed to evacuate yesterday. the cause is under investigation. but the pmex oil company says it appears to be related to mechanics. the company said it managed to avert any significant oil spill. mcdonald's giving its workers a big break today. starting july 1, some 90,000 workers at the 1500 eateries the company owns and operates will be paid at least $1 more than the minimum wage. employees with at least a year on the job will get up to 5 days of paid leave a year.

also, mcdonald's is raising pay and adding benefits for some restaurant workers. only on "cbs this morning," the ceo is in studio 57 and says why the change doesn't go further. >> he fished everything from deadly stingrays to man eating pirhana. he takes michelle miller fishing in the everglades. that and more, the news is back in the morning. see you at 7:00. >> thank you. two internet giants based in the bay area are facing new pressures from regulators over in europe. here now is kcbs radio's financial reporter jason brooks. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. lawyers for google and facebook are going to be busy in europe. the "wall street journal" says european commission is preparing antitrust charges against google following its 5- year investigation into its search practices. rivals accused google's search results of favoring its own products and services.
also a number of other issues at stake here. google settled the search practice issue in the u.s. without any punitive damages. that could go the other way in europe where google has a much bigger presence in search, 90% of all searches through google as opposed to 65% in the u.s. and facebook is facing investigations in several countries by privacy watchdogs on how it handles user data in particular in regards to its what's app instagram site and how it uses that information to target users with advertising. the labor department reporting that first time unemployment claims fell by 20,000 to 268,000, four-week average down to 285,000. continuing to get good news. labor tomorrow reports its march employment report. economists looking for a solid gain of 250,000 although adp earlier reported less than 200,000 so we'll see what happens tomorrow. the stock market is closed tomorrow for the holiday weekend. today we're off to a flat start following two losing sessions. let's take a look at the big

legislation to make self- driving cars street legal. there are also questions about insurance coverage and accidents involving such cars. an extra bart track should make the commute easier on the heavily used line between pittsburg and san francisco. a crossover track opened yesterday between the pleasant hill and walnut creek stations. trains moving at high speed can switch over and use the track to get around disabled trains and lets bart use longer trains during peak hours. let see how the roads are doing this morning with elizabeth. >> okay. thanks, guys. we definitely know the commute is picking up steam here. we are starting to get to the heart of things. our accident count is increasing, as well. chp suddenly busy. if you are in brentwood southbound vasco at camino diablo, a wreck is cleared to the right-hand shoulder. sounds like the second crash kind of in a similar area in the brentwood and vasco road. here's a live look out the door san mateo bridge traffic also picking up some steam as you can see there leaving hayward drive time suddenly slow. westbound 92, 19 minutes
