stadium. the coast guard set up a maritime exclusion zone to block anyone from being in the creek channel. levels are low despite the rain we have had this winter. but the coast guard will be prepared for anything. >> at this time, we know of no specific credible threat directed at super bowl 50 or related events. >> reporter: national guard teams are already monitoring the perimeter and dozens of law enforcement agencies are involved in the overall security effort. in fact, at this early hour, 5:33 in the morning, you can see security guards out there. we are outside the convention center next to the stadium. this is as close as we can get. tasman is closed until tuesday. so with guards here around the clock, they are not taking any chances. they just want to make sure this area is secure leading up to the big game. from levi's stadium, jackie ward, kpix 5. you can't find a bigger television event in the united states than the super bowl. a tremendous amount of effort goes into those broadcasts. this year it is cbs' turn.

detects that. this is levi's stadium. 46 degrees. it's supposedly 50 in san francisco but when you factor in the wind, wind chill makes it feel like the low 40s. we have the frontal boundary sweeping through the bay area falling apart at the seams but see all those clouds? those will drift across the area today only partial clearing of the skies. high temperatures in the 50s and low 60s. and by the way if you want to come by sens restaurant embarcadero 4, we will be here today at super bowl city expect 60 degrees. have a great time. we are going to jump over to the bay bridge right now where the metering lights are on and we are starting to see a bit of a backup there business as usual. you're seeing some stop-and-go conditions beyond the first overpass there. that's the 880 overcrossing. eastbound 92 near [ non-english language ] , it looks like it may be blocking lanes so expect some delays as you work your way through there. also on the flip side east 92 connecting over to northbound 880 we are getting reports of
another accident here also. chp not on scene yet. we'll get more details coming up. but two cars reported over to the right shoulder. dumbarton westbound at the toll plaza worth of an accident, as well. but your drive times along the peninsula look good now. time now 5:37. santa clara university is offering free vaccinations to students today to prevent a meningitis outbreak. kiet do reports from scu explaining why the university is taking immediate tack -- why the university is taking immediate action. >> reporter: health officials don't know if a third student will turn up sick but they aren't taking any chances. they urge all students to come down and get vaccinated. starting today there will be a free clinic for all students for meningitis and chances are, the students have not gotten this particular vaccine because it's new and specifically designed to fight this strain that's sickened two students here on campus. now, this all began on sunday when a student got sick and
went to the hospital. then two days later another student got sick. tests confirm it was the same bikial strain of meningitis known as cerro group b. health officials are searching for anyone who may have had contact with these two students. >> we are focusing intensely for the next several days on ensuring the health and welfare of our students encouraging them to get vaccinated. >> at santa clara we are concerned about the welfare of our students, faculty and staff. >> reporter: coming up on saturday, there's going to be a huge super bowl-related event called the super community celebration. that will go on as scheduled. kiet do, kpix 5. here's an animated look at what caltrans is tackling. they are lowering the first 504- foot truss span and while the
movie makes it look easy the project will actually take two days to complete because the process is excruciatingly slow and precision is key. the price of a 30-second ad during the super bowl has hit $5 million. up 11% from last year. >> that's all good. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here with more of her favorite super bowl numbers. jill, good morning from san francisco. >> reporter: good morning, from the host city itself. >> hey, very good. super bowl ads will generate some $400 million. but how will the city of san francisco fare? >> reporter: you know, a lot of folks in the bay area were really angry because they said you had to spend nearly $5 million in additional police, fire and transportation services. fear not. visitors are expected to spend $220 million and you will get a share in tax revenue. here's something mind-blowing. the state of california stands to collect millions of
something called, are you ready, the jock tax. this tax is anyone who earns income outside of the state in which he files taxes. it's calculated by the number of duty days that a play spends in any game function including practice, training, playing, even meetings. okay. so let's say you're an injured player you're traveling with the team. you still have to pay whether or not you practice. california's the highest jock tax rate in the nation. 13.3% levee on the teams. i think it will work out ak for you guys. >> i think it will be fine. >> which team is better for stocks? >> well, investors should be rooting for the panthers and here's why. when the super bowl winner comes from the national football conference like carolina, the dow jones industrial average rises 11.4% on average that year. but when the victor is from the
american football conference like the broncos, it goes up 3.6%. before you start making your trades on monday morning, just remember, there are always outliers. remember 2008? that's when the new york football giants of the nfc defeated the afcs new england patriots. and guess what! the dow went down by 34%. then 2013 the ravens won from the afc and the market was supposed to be not so great the dow was up 26%. what does this tell us? it's just a stupid stat and fun. [ laughter ] >> kind of like punxsutawney phil. he is never right but we go with it. >> i was going to say the broncos are worth more than that. >> we'll find out. if it goes up, we'll be happy. jill schlesinger, thank you, live from san francisco. presidential candidates play the blame game on the campaign trail. what they are all saying as time falls short to win over
ling for a few mor states of new hampshire ground zero right now in the presidential campaign. candidates scrambling for a few more votes before tuesday's first in the nation primary. kpix 5's anne makovec is in the newsroom with the very latest appearances by hillary clinton and bernie sanders reporter: there is another big showdown set for tonight. the fifth democratic debate. the first time the top two will be on stage together since martin o'malley dropped out. hillary clinton and bernie sanders made their case to voters during a town hall meeting last night answering questions from the audience. they appeared on stage one at a time and traded jabs over their progressive values. >> i do not know any progressive who has a super pac
and takes $15 million from wall street. >> i was somewhat amused today that senator sanders has set himself up to be a gatekeeper on who is a progressive. >> clinton beat sanders in an iowa caucus this week but just barely and she is trailing him right now in new hampshire. sanders is from neighboring vermont. he also is dominating the attention of younger voters. on the republican side, donald trump and ted cruz remain locked in a war of words over the results in iowa. trump went on a twitter rant wednesday accusing ted cruz of cheating to win the iowa caucus. cruz says trump is throwing what he describes as trumper tantrums. an iowa gop spokesman says no fraud was committed and caucus results are final. >> this guy ted cruz, ted cruz goes out, you talk about liars. >> donald's insults get more and more hysterical the more and more upset he gets. >> it's getting ugly. republicans rand paul and rick
santorum dropped out wednesday. santorum immediately endorsed marco rubio. now, as republicans drop out it's interesting to see who might be positioning himself for the vp spot. live in the newsroom, anne makevoc, kpix 5. from heartbreak to happiness for some bay area girl scouts who won a sleepover at levi's stadium. 1200 scouts were challenged to sell 600 boxes each. their reward a slumber party on the 50-yard line at levi's stadium in may. they fulfilled their end of the bargain but the 49ers canceled the event for a concert. >> we were just, like, all disappointed and felt bad. >> it made me sad. >> i was sad but now i'm really happy it's on again. >> the 49ers realized they had made a mistake so they made good on the sleepover offer and just moved it a week later than the original date. >> a good move. you don't want to upset the girl scouts with the biggest
