be a while until things clear up. good morning. i'm michelle griego. >> i'm kenny choi. we have live team coverage of the storm. anne makovec and roqui theus will have everything you need to know about the mess on the bay bridge but first, let's go to roberta who has been tracking the storm all morning. >> it has been raining consistently for the past 12 hours. good morning, everybody. this is our live hi-def doppler radar. at this particular time we have activity offshore going to be moving onshore. north bay now, you can see anywhere you're going to be commuting from whether it's healdsburg, guerneville, petaluma, mill valley, all the way into the golden gate bridge, it's definitely a wet morning commute there. meanwhile let's go to the eastern portion of our bay area. you know when you head out of walnut creek, into san ramon heading towards that 580/680 corridor, it's always a crawl towards the sunol grade. add in rain and it's going to be slow this morning.
rain showers over the peninsula, daly city, and as we head over towards the south bay campbell and los gatos, you, too are hearing raindrops on the rooftops. let's pull this on out so you can take a look at where the rain is coming from. it's off the pacific ocean. typically this time of the year, we see rain showers from the north to the south. but meanwhile, this time we are seeing it from the west to the east and lifting to the north. there's our hi-def doppler radar. what we're taking a look at mao is this huge cluster of rain immediately off the coast. this is heading directly towards the north bay and the city of san francisco within the next couple of minutes! and when you see orange on your tv screen, that could be the risk of a thunderstorm activity! so we'll keep you posted on that. we have seen over 250 lightning strikes around the bay area in the overnight hours. meanwhile, live weather camera looking out towards a very wet golden gate bridge, air temperatures are balmy in the 50s and in the 60s. but the winds are under 10 miles per hour. that is the only weather feature that really did not
materialize associated with this warm front passing through the bay area. the lack of a wind. but that's good. haven't seen any downed trees or power lines. temperatures today with the rain showers tapering off and only a spotty afternoon shower in the 50s and 60s, and even the 70s to the south. we have the timing of your second storm that's going to impact your weekend coming up. all right, that rain could cause a lot of problems on the roads this morning. >> it could be a slow drive because it is slick. kpix 5's anne makovec is tracking conditions live on the toll plaza. how is it? >> reporter: i want to say right off the bat that if you are heading to the bay bridge from san francisco, the entrance near first street is blocked right now. so take an alternate. we'll have more information from roqui in a little bit. i'm on the other side of the bay bridge now and traffic is moving slowly. roberta has been talking about the storm being tropical which is good. it's warm. it's not windy. and here is a look at the
traffic. again it is backed up. the roads are wet. but there's not a lot of puddles out here right now and that's because there's already been so much traffic that's moved through here that a lot of that water is moved off of the road. still, you're going to want to leave some extra time for your morning commute. here's some of the footage from last night's rainy commute. this is what it looked like from the inside of one of our crew's vehicles. cars splashing through puddles, windshield wipers and umbrellas all out. chp has responded to dozens of accidents because of the roads, a lot of driving going too fast for conditions. for now, the rain has been falling for the past 12 hours. so we have had plenty of rain, plenty more to come over the next few hours. let's get right to roqui theus for more on that big accident blocking the entrance to the bay bridge from the san francisco side. roqui. >> yes, thank you, anne. let's talk about it right now.
san francisco is in chaos right now! if you are trying to get from san francisco to the east bay, let me tell you how to get there without using the bay bridge. the san mateo bridge is your best alternate if you want to take 101 or 280 south to highway 92. now let's talk about that big rig crash blocking the entrance to eastbound 80. the crash is at the beginning of the lower deck of the bay bridge. it is a big rig jackknifed blocking four lanes. only the right lane is open. and because of that jackknifed big rig, you have fuel leaking down into the on-ramp shutting down the on-ramp, as well. now, first street is closed but right lane is open. essex and fifth are closed. they are being diverted at fourth and coming back on at sterling. this will take hours to open up. this is involving a big rig and we know those take a while to open up. now, if you want to avoid the roads altogether again, take san mateo bridge or if you want to take the golden gate bridge
to the richmond/san rafael bridge, that is another alternate, as well. now let's move over to oakland side. we have a crash southbound 880 at 5th street is an overturned car off to the shoulder. but as you can see in the area cars moving at just 17 miles per hour heading to the maze. and if you want to avoid all the roads, that's definitely a great suggestion here. mass transit all on time. roberta is busy with the rain to talk about. >> roqui, i'll take that. thank you. in pacifica crews are watching for forceful waves and heavy rain as they work to protect the coastline. kpix 5's maria medina has the latest from pacifica. >> reporter: in case you can't see that it is raining, we are going to show you how much water has checked on our live truck just the last hour here. they are concerned about minor flooding. you can see a little bit of ponding in the street. not very dramatic.
this is just the beginning of the storms this weekend, right? so they are concerned about the coastal bluffs right down the street from me. they saw a lot of erosion there during the el nino storms earlier this year. the city even red-tagged an apartment building demolished another building before it went over the cliff and declared a state of emergency. we also saw a breach of the seawall during one of those storms and public works crews told us yesterday that they have those repairs nearly complete and they say with this storm, they are going to stay on top of things. >> what we have been doing maybe over the last three or four months is preparing for a winter storm and stuff and that involves keeping and monitoring our coastal bluffs along with our seawalls, catch basins, spillways, making sure there's no debris flow in our creeks, that kind of thing. >> reporter: and so what they are concerned about are those heavy rains during a storm or back-to-back storms.
they say those heavy rains really saturate the ground and start seeing erosion. back out here live you can see the surf here in pacifica really starting to pick up. they say they will have extra crews here on standby throughout the weekend just in case things get bad. live in pacifica, maria medina, kpix 5. ... federal safety investigators are in new york today to investigate the runaway incident involving the plane of vice-presidential nominee mike pence. [ pause ] [ no audio ] >> have an emergency in the airport. we are getting help for you. >> the charter jet carrying the indiana governor slid off the runway last night while coming in for a landing. the aircraft came to an abrupt stop in the grass on the side of the runway. once the plane stopped, pence walked to the back to check on the press and then spoke with first responders outside. no one was injured. the current vice president may already have a spot in the
next administration if the democrats win the white house. according to some reports, vice president joe biden is at the top of hillary clinton's list to become the next secretary of state. biden served as the chair of the foreign relations committee during his time in the u.s. senate. and new reports show clinton with a huge fundraising advantage over donald trump. $153million in available cash between clinton's campaign accounts and the joint account with democrats. that's more than double the amount reported on the republican side which was at $68 million. a man and a woman are in custody accused of robbing and beating a woman at her home in fremont. barry and darlene are charged with robbery and attempted murder. police say they attacked the victim october 18 as she returned home from a local casino. the victim was struck in the back of the head several times with a hard object. in san francisco, police say that a man in his 20s is
recovering from life- threatening injuries after being stabbed at united nations plaza. sfpd says two men got into a fight yesterday around 4:30. and that the stabbing suspect injured his hand with his own knife. police say that the suspect will be booked on suspicion of attempted murder after he gets released from the hospital. time now 6:09. a bay area woman learns how long she will spend behind bars after a case of animal abuse is caught on camera. >> the and we'll introduce you to a 3-year-old in idaho to looks like he could give steph curry a run for his money. >> that's so special. hi, everybody! good morning from the kpix weather center! sure, we're experiencing storm number one right now but i'm already tracking storm number 2 and i'll talk about the impact it will have on your weekend. >> and here's a live look at the san mateo bridge. your best alternate to that traffic alert involving a big rig crash blocking the entrance to eastbound 80 out of san francisco. we'll tell you all about it coming up. >> closed captioning for this newscast is sponsored by "living spaces furniture" ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
good morning. welcome to your friday. your time check now is 6:13. take a look at your tv screen. this is our live hi-def doppler radar. it isn't this wonderful, these are beneficial rains that continue to drift across the bay area. it's a rainy friday. i'll talk about when the rain will end and when the second storm will roll into the bay area. we have weather and traffic in less than four minutes. california is experiencing fewer problems than most other statewide health insurance ex- changes. a new analysis from the ap found that california is one of nine states where customers can choose between at least three health plans. earlier this month, it was estimated that more than a million people in 32 states would have to find new coverage
because their provider pulled out of the program. one major provider, united healthcare, pulled out of "covered california" in april. the woman who was caught on camera throwing her dog will spend time behind bars. a judge sentenced brandy chin to six months in jail and three years' probation. she was caught on surveillance video outside a home in fairfield last december. police say that she threw and hit the dog when she got into a fight with her boyfriend. the pug is okay and removed from brandy chin. a plane flying very close to the water in del mar. authorities say it was likely only about 20 feet above their heads. federal regulations say that should be at least 500 feet in the air. >> it's no different than a car driving erratically on the roads. people call in when we see a plane flying erratically, that's not normal. that looks dangerous. i think we need to do the same thing. >> no word yet if the faa is
going to investigate. here's a look at a potential basketball star of the future. >> carter of idaho is just 3 years old. his parents say he picked up the skills by watching them and pros on television. >> he probably catches a basketball every day. >> every day. >> shooting. >> yeah. >> we try not to practice with him on the weekends. >> he is pretty good. and he is so cute. carter said his favorite players are steph curry and lebron james. >> look at that. >> he has some skill. >> you see that crossover? that was very nice. >> is that what that's called? oh. he made it! >> he has the dribbling and shooting skills. wow, athletic kid. >> he has the name. >> you think of a different kind of dribble at that age, most kids dribble.
[ laughter ] >> dribbling out on the roads? >> um -- not quite. yeah. i guess could you say that. but we have a pretty serious situation here. chp traffic issued an alert for this eastbound 80 crash that's involving a big rig. it's jackknifed at the beginning of the lower deck and leaking fuel on to the on-ramp so the on-ramp is officially closed right now and it is still blocking four lanes. only the right lane is getting by. first street is closed, essex is closed, 5th street is closed and those are the on-ramps to the eastbound 80 to the eastbound side of the bridge here. it's going to take about two to three hours to clear this out and as you can see, traffic is moving at just 26 miles per hour. it's also slow on the westbound side, as well. now, the important part of this, how do you avoid it? we are suggesting the san mateo bridge. you can take 101 or 280 south on to highway 92 here and here's a look at that slow- moving traffic into the peninsula but if you are heading on the eastbound side you're looking good actually. 880 to 101 westbound will take
you about 20 minutes. but expect a much easier drive on the eastbound side. now moving over to the golden gate bridge, take the golden gate bridge into the richmond/san rafael bridge. it looks good on the bridge here and on the richmond bridge but we don't have a live look at that right now. let's take a look at mass transit throughout the area. all mass transit is on time. roberta? >> thank you, roqui. good morning, everybody. i have been taking a look at the rain totals over the past 12 hours and we have already seen up to three-quarters inch of rain in san francisco. heftier amounts to the north of the north bay. right now see this area of yellow and orange? this is a pretty moderate cell that's now "pushhhhing" and lifting into the north bay. that orange has the potential of producing a thunderstorm. and we did see some lightning strikes off the coast of san francisco in the overnight hours. 250 lightning strikes. okay. right now, moderate rain
pushing into the petaluma area. east bay, it's from antioch into bethel island, brentwood you have some light rain showers. discovery bay a little void of it right now but all of this is all the way into the concord, clayton and walnut creek. we are buying a break into the peninsula but in south city we see light rain and in the south bay, light rain is "pushhhhing" out of sunnyvale, cupertino and campbell making tracks towards downtown san jose into the rose garden district and in willow glen. all this activity is subtropical so it's not cold. it's very warm. very juicy. all this rain has been lifting out of the pacific ocean up in a northeast direction. it's wet at the golden gate bridge and definitely slippery when wet. temperatures are in the 50s and 60s. again, very mild out the door and as you get the kids ready for school doesn't have it layer them up. it's a moderate to light rainfall at this particular time. it looks like temperatures with the 50s and 60s, we do have that calm wind. this is the only thing that hasn't materialized with this
storm. the winds. they have been relatively light. it will be 5 to 15 during the afternoon hours when the rain tapers off. we'll still see a spotty shower. we'll keep the chance of a thunderstorm only in the morning forecast. it will be cloudy tonight a breakthrough saturday. and then a cold front moves in on saturday night through your sunday. this is beautiful. it's our satellite-radar. it indicates that this is the plume of moisture that drifts all the way back to the eastern pacific tapping into subtropical moisture. that's why it's so showery in nature as you head out for your commute but then upstream we have an area of low pressure that he a cold front that's going to impact sunday. here's your lunch hour. it will be mostly cloudy with just the stray shower. here's your evening commute. again, a little bit of light activity out towards the eastern foothills of our east bay and lifting into the central valley. otherwise we'll have that break. here's your sunday morning. might even be able to get out for a bike ride before the cold front comes from the north. this slices to the south. this will override the warm air
mass that's in place right now. that's when we have a chance of a thunderstorm at any point of the day on sunday. then we'll begin to see a break for halloween. rainfall totals up to 2.5" by sunday night easily up to an inch in san francisco and inch and quarter in san jose. we have a flash flood watch in effect for the monterey county area for the soberanes fire and chimney fire zones. in addition to that, we now have in addition to flash flood watch in the high sierra, we do have a winter weather watch. a snow level down to 6,000 feet saturday night that will encompass the blue canyon area, as well. snow at the higher elevations by sunday above 7,000 feet. so there you have the watch for the high sierra and the western slopes. sunrise 7:32. by the time it sets, temperatures 60s and low 70s. again a real tropical feel to your day. showers taper off later today with mostly cloudy skies saturday, cold front enters the picture overnight primarily on sunday with a chance of a thunderstorm. more rain on monday night
through your tuesday. a chance of rain on wednesday. partly cloudy by thursday. that's a look at our storm watch coverage. we'll be right back. but first, sports is next. and i'm dennis o'donnell. coming up, which bay area football team has the worst defense? hint, one of them gave up 600 yards last night. and the sharks shoot the lights out at the tank. did they come back on? the story straight ahead. ,,,,,,,,,,
c'mon in, pop pop! happy birthday! ,,,,,,,,,, i survived a heart attack. i'm doing all i can to keep from having another one. and i'm taking brilinta. for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin. no more than one hundred milligrams as it affects how well it works.
brilinta helps keep my platelets from sticking together and forming a clot. brilinta reduced the chance of another heart attack. or dying from one. it worked better than plavix. >>don't stop taking brilinta without talking to your doctor since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily, or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers, a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery, and all medicines you take. >>talk to your doctor about brilinta. i'm doing all i can. that includes brilinta. if you can't afford your medication, astra zeneca may be able to help.
the u.s.those of us whoof freedserved in the military are very proud of that. i believe very, very strongly in our country and what we stand for. i went to iraq in 2004 to fight for freedom. for generations, our troops have sacrificed for our freedoms. one of the most important things we do is vote - to protect that freedom. i'm tom steyer. let's make the people we're so proud of, proud of us. please. vote. vote. vote. vote. good morning. over the last five years, the sacramento kings were supposed to be both in anaheim, then to seattle. the uncertainty about their future brought the kings tv guy to tears. >> the one thing that we do know is the love affair between this team --[ pause ] >> --and this city. >> well, how times change.
sacramento debuted its brand- new golden one center all made possible by a former warriors owner, [ non-english name ] new arena old results. 1st quarter leonard scored 30 points last night. san antonio spoils the garden party at 102-94. fans headed for the exits early in the coliseum in l.a. maybe because usa put the usc --usc put the game early against cal to bed. check out the cats. rogers 28-10 trojans. only defense worse than chip kelly's might be sonny's. ronald jones ran for 223 yards and a pair of touchdowns. trojans beat the bears for 629 yards and win 45-24. the bears now 4-4 this year. and in hockey, the sharks winners last night 3-1 against the bluejackets. i'm dennis o'donnell. have a great weekend.
it is 6:25. scientists have uncovered more details about the death of an endangered blue whale found along the bay area coast. >> and it is wet if you haven't heard all around the bay area. rain continues throughout the evening hours. we'll give you the latest on your morning commute and that big rig accident blocking the entrance to the bay bridge. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
concerned about with this storm. >> a series of storms in the bay area. we'll talk about the weekend. >> and we have a heavy commute into san francisco and a very bad one headed out of san francisco into the east bay an update on the traffic alert on eastbound 80. good morning, it is friday october 28. i'm kenny choi. >> i'm michelle griego. time now 6:30. it's been a soggy morning raining all over the bay area and we are seeing big problems on the commute. >> and as roqui said, mentioned earlier, the rain is already causing a lot of problems on the roads so let's check that. >> yes. thank you, guys. okay. traffic is stopped in san francisco if you are heading to eastbound 80. eastbound 80 a big rig is blocking four lanes. the right lane is open. it is leaking fuel on the first and 5th street on-ramps. so those two on-ramps are
closed. also closed the essex and sterling on-ramps and this is going to take at least up to two to three hours to open and that's at least because this could take much longer. you know how long those big rig crashes take to clear. now, moving over to an alternate route because you will definitely want to avoid this altogether, here's a look at the san mateo bridge and a live look at the -- we can't even see it because of the rain. 880 to 101 westbound will take you 18 minutes. eastbound the entrance into the east bay shouldn't take too long and it's moving if you can see past the raindrops here. now let's tank a look at another alternate. golden gate bridge into the east bay both directions good. you can take golden gate bridge to the richmond/san rafael bridge if you are heading into the east bay. so a couple of good alternates but you will definitely want to avoid eastbound 80 from san francisco into the east bay right now. bay bridge toll plaza maze to
downtown a long 34 minutes. roberta? >> i'll take it, roqui. you're talking about the toll plaza. kpix 5's anne makovec is tracking the conditions there and anne, how is it now? >> reporter: ceremony better than it is on the other side -- certainly better than it is on the other side of the bay bridge as roqui talked about the big rig accident at the entrance on the westbound side is really -- eastbound side, rather, is really bad right now. but this is the westbound side. you have the normal traffic. you can see behind me that the roadways are wet but the more traffic that we have been seeing here on the roadway the more vehicles there have been to push that water off of the pavement. it's not so bad. the splashing beneficial for those of you who have yet to hit the roadway [chuckling] for your morning commute. we had a crew out during last evening to show how that looked driving around at the beginning of this storm. the chp responded to dozens of accidents overnight because of the wet roads. drivers in many cases going too
fast for the conditions. so reminder to give yourself extra time as you are heading out. later when it gets light out, if you have your windshield wiperses on, remember you have to have your headlights on, as well. roberta has been closely tracking this storm so we get more information from clear speaking of roberta, you have. you have been busy. i love everything about anne makovec. >> what's not to love. >> but she is describing it perfectly! by the smell and it just -- it's so tropical in nature when you head on out the door that's the one feature that may surprise you. it's not one of those cold winter storms. it feels like you're in hawaii him. this morning. and just think of it as these are beneficial rains for us here in the bay area. it's accumulating. we see nearly an inch of rain in the past 12 hours in livermore three-quarters in san francisco. this is really impressive. it's our live hi-def doppler radar. i want to zero in on the north bay because it's been raining there all morning. so anywhere you leave from whether it's santa rosa, petaluma, novato, into the
golden gate bridge, it's slippery. seeing a break in the eastern portion of the bay area except along the 680 from walnut creek into danville. rain showers into the santa clara valley. look at the city of san francisco. we were just wet. now buying a break. upstream we have the eastern portion of the santa clara valley campbell moderate rain cell there. lots gastrectomy wet. that you will is lifting off the pacific ocean northeast. this cell is going to highway 121 causing ponding on the roads. when you see these areas of orange, right here, embedded in that moderate rain cell, that
could contain a thunderstorm so watch out for that. we have already seen 250 lightning strikes off the coast of pacifica in the overnight hours. you can clearly see that the golden gate bridge is definitely wet. you need that umbrella out the door. we'll have morning rain all through the commute. temperatures balmy 50s and 60s. later today, the rain showers do taper. but we will have a scattered spotty shower. temperatures in the 60s and low 70s. once this system is out of here, we have a cold front to deal with. we'll talk about the timing of that. that's coming up. but right now let's go ahead and send it over. we have maria medina in pacifica. she has been tracking the possibility of erosion in that area. maria has been there this morning. she is a little bit on the soggy side. what's going on out there? >> reporter: yeah, good morning, roberta a little bit of break from the rain in the last few minutes. they are concerned about minor flooding here. i want to show you the amount of water in the streets. not significant. but it shows that it has been
raining here for quite some time. this is just the beginning of what's to come. now, what they are really concerned about are the coastal bluffs just down the street from me. that's where they really saw some erosion during the el nino storms this year. it caused the city to declare a state of emergency. they red-tagged one apartment building and they demolished another one before it went over the cliff. we also saw a breach of the seawall here as well and city crews they tell us that they have those repairs nearly complete and they say, you know, with this storm all they can do is just really stay on top of things. >> i been out here for many years. we always prepare for the worst and hope for the best. this storm here, we are concerned about the amount of water in a short period of time. we are looking at maybe three- quarters inch which could, you know, cause some minor flooding. >> i have been keeping an eye on the cliff all year to see if there's been any further erosion. it sits in the back of your mind is it going to happen
soon? it happened just down here. >> reporter: that's tara. she lives on the cliffside so she worries about that erosion. so, you know, city crews they say is heavy rains and back-to- back storms. because when the ground is saturated, they see the erosion. but throughout the weekend city crews say they will have extra staff here. maria medina, kpix 5. new this morning nearly 150 protestors in north dakota were arrested when they clashed with police over a proposed pipeline. [ screaming ] >> the protestors have been camped out on a private property for months. officers dressed in riot gear and armed with pepper spray moved in on the protestors last night. they are protesting the dakota access oil pipeline. they think it could compromise their party line. sheldon adelson denies that
he is ready to walk away from the deal to bring the raiders to las vegas. he pledged $650 million for building a new stadium but this week he said the raiders were making too many demands. yesterday, an aide for adelson said the comment was blown out of proportion and he is nowhere close to pulling out of the project. police are trying to track down burglars in san leandro. the suspects were captured on surveillance video on brad hoff way last week. police say that the burglars also hit homes on benedict drive and another neighborhood. they are looking for a red honda civic. the roof is distinct because it has oxidized paint. researchers now have a better idea of what caused the death of a blue whale whose carcass washed up on daly city this week. the necropsy revealed skull fractures suggesting blunt- force trauma. but it's unclear what caused it. the marine mammal center says that the whale measures about
65 feet. blue whales are endangered and are considered the largest animals on earth. time now is 6:38. a northern california woman is awarred $70 million in a lawsuit claiming one of johnson & johnson's popular products gave her cancer. >> the market opened about 10 minutes ago. the dow is up 55 points. coming up, we'll get an update from kcbs radio's financial reporter jason brooks. ,,
good morning. it's 6:42 on this friday. time to look at our live hi-def doppler radar. out the door look at the yellow and orange. that's heavy rain moving into the north bay. he east bay has light rain showers now from walnut creek into alamo into san ramon as you make your southerly track towards the tri-valley into the
santa clara valley. around the peninsula, a break. but look what's off the coast. you have more rain arriving within the next 10 to 15 minutes. we are going to talk about the impact all this will make on your weekend. traffic and weather in less than four minutes. a local high school paid tribute this evening to a police officer who is shot in the head in san francisco. officer kevin downs is partially paralyzed and continues to recover after surgery to remove bullet fragments from his brain. st. ignatius high school will hold a raffle at tonight's football game. it will benefit a nonprofit started by officer downs to help returning service members transition to civilian life. downs was wounded last week during a confrontation with a mentally ill man who was later shot and killed during a standoff. a key financial report brings encouraging news as we enter the weekend. joining us now is kcbs radio's financial reporter jason brooks. >> reporter: good morning. the u.s. economy shifted out of neutral in the 3rd quarter
[chuckling] where the commerce department reporting gdp grew at 2.9% more than double the rate in the 2nd quarter. you could really chalk it up to businesses restockpiling. that was a big issue in the first half of the year but business is more confident as we approaching the holiday season. also, exports were up as the dollar stabilized a bit over the past few months. consumer spending was significantly weaker than the prior quarter at half the pace. [chuckling] but that spending did go towards durable goods like cars and appliances which is key for manufacturers. a lot of corporate earnings coming in among the winners including san ramon-based chevron, google parent alphabet which continues to dominate the online advertising world and the online search market on mobile. of course, losers go, that would be amazon. its performance was solid but the company ramped up spending big time in order to build new warehouses and meet the upcoming demand for the holiday
season. a lot of online shopping taking place. stock market off to a mixed start on this friday. let's go to the big board and see how we're doing. it's mixed in the early going. kenny and michelle, back to you. >> thank you. a modesto woman has been awarded $70 million in her lawsuit against johnson & johnson. deborah giannecchini says the baby powder gave her ovarian cancer. she says she used it all over her body between 15 and 61 years old when she was diagnosed. her suit says talc a mineral found in the powder is a carcinogen. two other women have been awarded millions by the company over cancer concerns. johns wanted ruled -- johnson & johnson was ruled negligent in the sale of the product. >> studies found an elevated risk. >> johnson & johnson plans to
