5:01 am
northbound at san leandro davis street is a mess right here. you don't want to be caught up in this and so of course liz will get you around that. but we'll continue to give you updates from here and at the same time stay in contact with chp but this is a cig alert going to be a mess -- cig alert, going to be a mess for a while now. police have arrested more than 20 people and six police officers are in the hospital. ryan nobles is on the ground in baltimore. >> reporter: just hours after the funeral service for freddie gray. rioting and looting on the streets of baltimore.

5:02 am
better than this. we know that the world is watching. and we cannot allow our city to devolve into chaos. >> reporter: one local resident took to the streets telling people to go home. >> this right here is not relevant. they need to have their butts at home. they -- do not respect this young man's death. >> reporter: freddie gray's family also condemned the violence and called for the riots to end. >> i want you all to get justice for my son but don't do it like this here, don't tear up the whole city. just for him. >> and we're taking a live look now out here in -- live look in baltimore right now. and you can see that line of police officers on the street right there. many of them in riot gear waiting for those crowds again a live look out on the streets of baltimore. where they are trying to calm things down riots have been going on all night.
5:03 am
shortly after freddie gray's funeral. this is when they began and again the mayor says -- called it one of the city's darkest days, a lot of destruction. at least a dozen police officers we know of were injured. and they're trying to calm things down in the city. but we're not seeing a big crowd out there. we're just seeing that long line of police officers blocking that street in riot gear. we're going to go back -- what's that? >> i was going to say it's what 8:00 in the morning right now? probably more of a precautionary thing right now. just to make sure that the city is policed well and that they take care of the issue. but it looks like it's calm right now at least. well that rioting in baltimore has police in oakland and san francisco on heightened alert as well. they've been riding in pairs last night and this morning. all as a precaution. oakland officers keeping an eye on a demonstration that popped up last night a few dozen protesters marched around the city last night. earlier in the evening roughly about 100 gathered at broadway
5:04 am
and 14th street fortunately though there are no reports of any trouble in oakland or san francisco over the night. more water restrictions may be coming soon in san francisco. this afternoon the city's puc will take up the idea of placing mandatory restrictions on outdoor water use and on overall water usage by commercial businesses. and today the board of east bay mud will discuss getting extra water from the sacramento river. a total of 21,000 acres -- would come -- acres of water would come from three districts on the upper sacramento and it would cost about $25 million and customers would end up paying for the extra water supply under a higher drought water rate proposal. 5:04. let's talk a little weather on a tuesday and i guess -- it's blowing out there a little bit of wind huh? >> we have some breezy conditions right now. town 26 miles per hour at the delta but under 15 miles per hour everywhere else. but later today that's going to be the most notable feature.
5:05 am
west on shore winds. 20 to 30 miles per hour. and it's all due to the return of the marine layer which is right now boy you can see shrouding the tiptop of the bay bridge. temperature-wise we are into the 50s across the board and later today the numbers are coming down significantly in comparison to yesterday. we were in the 40s to 50 degrees in concord. that's it. a huge deck of low clouds lining the coast and into the bay. a little bit of drizzle associated with it. temperature-wise today, 58 degrees and pacifica and 78 decks in livermore. down from 90 in gilroy to 80 degrees and down from 86 to 76- degrees in santa rosa. the full forecast is just minutes away. but first, liz? okay. thank you roberta. and back out to the kcbs traffic alert. taking a look at the current backup right now in northbound 880 a lot of folks are trying to get to work on time and they are unfortunately going to get stuck in this huge backup. right now it's jammed solid beyond 238 all the way to davis street. that's where the crash happened. you may have heard ryan's live report just moments ago.
5:06 am
so we've learned that caltrans sweeper crews are going to be heading out that way. they're going to try to open a few more lanes here shortly. whatever that means. i mean we really don't have an estimated time of opening at this point but we know crews are heading out there now. so 580 is going to be the best bet. this is actually a live look at some of that closure. we spun this camera around so the right -- or the left side of the screen rather that's where the hard closure is in effect. they're actually detouring cars off at davis street and you can use international boulevard to get back on to the freeway. next -- i say that it looks like they're letting some cars through. there may have been an update on that. i'll have to check that here as soon as i can get to the chp report but 5850 is the best -- 580 is the best alternate. it's early enough you can cruise on through although oakland exits without much of the issue, big rigs can also use 580. that can change if lanes continue to be locked really into -- blocked really into the

good morning everyone. it is tuesday, april 28th. time check for you is 5:12. we are taking a look out from san francisco towards the east bay. looking at the bay bridge. and if you notice, we cannot see the tiptop of the bay bridge which stands 526 feet which means we're possibly going to see some airport delays, that's a marine layer and i'll talk about the impact it will have on your forecast coming up in four minutes from now. okay, roberta. thank you. the captain of that south korean ferry will spend his life in prison. the court decided today the ferry captain was negligent when he steered a ship that sank last year killing more than 300 people on board. captain is also being charged with abandoning passengers in need. most of the victims in that deadly ferry accident were teenagers traveling to an island for a school trip. nepal's military is preparing food, emergency supplies also water to bring to isolated areas near the epicenter of that deadly earthquake. the number of confirmed dead is

5:16 am
of a surprise they actually just canceled the traffic alert a minute ago. 5:123 you know all lanes back open northbound 88 # at dais. so -- 880 at davis. so yeah i guess they cleaned up some of the chain reaction crash. i want to show you some video of what it looked like a little while ago. this was moments after the crash happened shortly after 3:00 this morning. it was a chain reaction seven car crash and obviously one of the cars erupted into flames for a while. all lanes were blocked. and shortly after 5:00, they got one lane open. and then we just got word that they reopened the remaining lanes. so there's still a traffic backup in that area. if you actually can go back to our maps i can show you it is still pretty slow from just beyond 238. so until kind of those residual delays clear out you may want to consider 580 but at this point of the morning, i think it should clear out relatively quickly. major injuries involved in the crash and we were concerned all lanes were going to be closed for a while but again chp just gave the word that all lanes are now lee clear and this is a
5:17 am
live look near -- the oakland coliseum kind of turn that camera around and yeah, it looks like lanes are now back open northbound. great news there. all right, well we still have another traffic alert. this one in hercules, eastbound lanes of 80 at willow. this one unfortunately is not cleared and three lanes remain blocked and it is pretty slow from at least highway 4 right now so the only bright spot in all this is that it is countercommute. so we haven't seen any huge backups with this yet. westbound traffic moves fine. but at one point another car was on fire. with that crash. so yeah, we had two separate incidents major crashes going on at the same time. that one at least still remains an issue. and if you're heading to the bay bridge, everything is quiet right now. into san francisco. that's your latest kcbs traffic. let's get an update on the fuse forecast. here's -- tuesday forecast. here's roberta. good morning everyone, 5 condition 17 and so amaze today see how many people are awake and reporting in for us this morning. yeah. these are our weather watchers scattered all around the bay area. so we can get a good handle on your morning.
5:18 am
it looks like right now it's 51- degrees and let's see who that is. that's george hughes. meanwhile one more reading here. let's take a look at -- this one right here. 55 degrees that would be tim woods in benicia. the most notable feature this morning is the return of the marine layer. and in fact we cannot see the tiptop of the bay bridge at this hour. and that right there the top is about 556 feet from the bay waters so if you can't see the top of the bay bridge, that leads me to believe we have a lowering ceiling this morning and when that happens we certainly do have delays at sfo and arriving flights. temperatures are into the 50s. winds right now are beginning to increase. west-northwest at 7 in livermore. we have winds up to 13 in concord. 24 in fairfield. winds become quite aggressive today. westerly 20 to 30 miles per hour. and area of low pressure it's a cold front it's descending on the bay area enhancing the marine layer butting up against the high pressure. that's when we have the gradient and that's when we have the very windy conditions.
5:19 am
limited or no clearing at the coast at all today. what a big difference from yesterday. this means our temperatures are going to come down from 90 yesterday in gilroy to 80 degrees. down from the 80s in santa rosa to the mid 70s. 65 in mendocino today. low 70s in the greater lake tahoe area. 50s beaches and 69-degrees in oakland down from 82 degrees yesterday a record high. mid 70s 234 throughout the trivalley -- in throughout the tri-valley. low 70s around the bay. here's the extended forecast. another cool day on wednesday before we have a warmer and -- day on thursday near 90 degrees, frank and michelle? all right thank you. during this ongoing drought, the tiny town of woodside is among the areas not keeping up with water conservation. most woodside households use an average 230 gallons a day. that's nothing compared the with the top 10% of the town's water users which average more than 1300 gallons a day.
5:20 am
>> unfortunately, i don't think the financial incentives will affect them very much. because money doesn't really mean too much to them. >> some woodside residents gathered last night to discuss water saving ideas. they range from hiring so- called water cops to publicly naming and shaming the biggest water wasters. and i'm dennis o'donnell. coming up, do we know who the warriors are going to play in the second round yet? and can tim lincecum continue his resurgence against the dodgers? we're up next. >> and what's cool about your school? e-mail your nominations right here or check in on the facebook page bulldog: oh boy! mattress discounters memorial day sale! what's this? a queen size serta mattress and box spring set for just $397.

5:34 am
just in the -- at the top of the hour and now all lanes are open. we were surprised by that. because this just happened a couple of hours ago. here is a look at the fiery crash video we got in the last hour into our newsroom. the first report of this crash northbound 880 at davis street. at 3:00 this morning. according to the chp. up to seven vehicles collided in was probably a chain reaction crash. started with one vehicle spinning out. we know five people were injured including one person critically injured. one person was trapped inside a vehicle. and so chp issued a cig alert obviously since 880 is so important to the east bay and to the commute. that's why they worked to get everything off to the shoulder. that's why they were so quick to make this happen. but still it's a surprise from the beginning of all this to the -- when they opened up the lanes. we're talking about two, two and a half hours that just shows how quickly and how --
5:35 am
how speedily the chp worked in an effort to open up i-880 northbound here at davis street in san leandro. reporting live i'm ryan takeo, kpix 5. >> that's good news for commuters out there. yeah, ryan did say though it was kind of a surprise how quickly they got the sweep you are crews out there. we've had it go into the heart of the morning rush and fortunately they were able to get things open early and being so early actually seeing the recovery happen pretty quickly as well. not too bad right now. few delays from just beyond 238 but this tweet from the alameda county fire department. it was tweeted out just a moment ago. and you can see what the residual was with some of that crash. so did erupt into flames at least one car and the latest on the injuries, there are five people were injured. one critical and one moderate. and three other people with minor injuries. so it was a pretty serious crash that happened shortly after 3:00 this morning. and it was not the only traffic alert. this one is now cleared as well
5:36 am
all lanes are back open in hercules eastbound lanes of 80 at willow. for a while three lanes were blocked and traffic super quickly recovered. no delay any longer from pinol. for a while we had backups from highway 4. not the case any longer and bay bridge, gosh i bond for they just turned the metering lights on. it looks like this. sometimes around the time they turn them on because the delays are just beginning to build now towards the end of the parking lot. that's the latest kcbs traffic. the forecast here's roberta. it will be cooler today and it will be windy. our live weather camera right now looking out towards the bay bridge. you can't see the top of it. and again, the top of the bridge is 526 feet tall. so when you can't see the top that means we have a lowering ceiling and all due to the marine layer. we have temperatures currently in the #rs and concord you have -- 50s and concord you have wind gusts at 26 miles per hour. we will have west winds 20 to 30 today and limited or no sunshine at the coast today into the 50s. 60s 70s around the peninsula. we had high temperatures in the mid 80s across the santa clara
5:37 am
valley yesterday. today 75 degrees. east of the bay coming down 87 degrees in livermore to 78 degrees. you will feel the difference. a raw blustery day in stinson beach in the 50s and 74 degrees in petaluma. quick santa rosa at 86 yesterday. today in the mid 70s and windy in cloverdale at 77 degrees. michelle, coming up at 48 minutes after the hour, we have the full forecast. can't wait roberta thank you. more water restrictions may be coming soon in san francisco. this afternoon, the city's puc will take up the idea of placing mandatory restrictions on outdoor water use and an overall water usage by commercial businesses. and today, the board of east bay mud will discuss getting extra water from the sacramento river. a total of 21,000-acre feet of water would come from three districts on the upper sacramento. it would cost about $25 million and customers would end up paying for the extra water supply. under a higher drought water rate proposal. a controversial vaccine
5:38 am
bail is scheduled to be heard in the senate's committee today. senate bill 227 would require all california school children to be vaccinated. only children who have health problems would be exempt. now the bill has created a big stir in the state. those against it say vaccines are a personal choice and parents should be able to decide what is best for their kids. supporters say what's best for the public needs to come before personal beliefs. and students and teachers will be in sacramento today to push for the passage of accreditation reform at community colleges. the bill aims to improve fairness, objectivity and transparency and supporters of the legislation will meet in front of the state capitol today at 11:00 a.m. there are 112 community colleges here in the state. recently city college of san francisco was in danger of losing its accreditation. the government has just announced new rules for the reverse mortgage market. >> let's chat. here to discuss how the loans work and what you need to know about the changes is cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger.
5:39 am
on a tuesday morning. i guess jill out of the gate tell the viewers exactly what is a reverse mortgage. >> reporter: well, this is a loan that allows homeowners who are 62 years or older who have a bunch of equity in their home to convert that equity into cash. now you got to stay in the house as a primary resident and the amount you can borrow depends on the age of the youngest borrower. the older you are the more you can borrow. also depends on the current interest rate and the appraised value of the home as well. they are guaranteed by fha and are given through hud. >> what are the new rules jill? >> reporter: you know, before yesterday, applying for a reverse mortgage was pretty easy. you kind of just sort of presented it and like said i own this house give me my money. today this process is going to be much more like qualifying for a traditional mortgage. borrowers are going to have to complete financial assessment tests and they've got to prove they paid their taxes.
5:40 am
and homeowner fees and other property related charges for the last couple of years. and they're going to have to produce documentation, tax returns, pay stubs if they're still working, bank statements and an overview of their monthly expenses and their cash flow. >> so what happens if potential borrowers fall short? >> reporter: well. it doesn't mean you're shut out it. does mean that you could be required to fund something called a life expectancy. what that would do is it would take a portion of your loan proceeds and put it into a separate account so the government would ensure that funding is available for your future tax and insurance obligations. this is kind of like an escrow account on the conventional mortgage. but the deal here is the new rules are going to seriously reduce the number of people who can qualify for a reverse mortgage. so before you start, go to and i've got a big analysis of the new reverse mortgage rules. >> i hope i never need one. [ laughter ] >> reporter: i know. >> very good okay jill
