5:01 am
>> it's fun. it's really fun because we transition from extremely cold conditions to now the rain and now that it is raining, although we'll see some breaks in the activity, pretty much anticipate damp conditions each day through saturday. this is our live hi-def doppler radar. green on the screen means yes, you need an umbrella out the door today. the kids need the slicker. you need to buy some extra time to make it to work wore your morning commute or off to school. we're also featuring at this particular time -- i wanted to zoom in on the peninsula. we have rain from sfo through daly city, millbrae, pacifica, moss and montara beaches. you can see right now in san mateo it's wet over the bridge. now all this activity is streaming in off the ocean. it's lifting up in a northerly direction ejecting to the east but there's a lot more precipitation and unsettled air mass behind it so count on pockets of heavy rain. look at the golden gate bridge! definitely slippery when wet. temperatures compared to yesterday at this time when we were in the high 20s and 30s, we're in the 40s and 50s.
5:02 am
the clouds acting like a blanket, insulating the air mass at this particular time. today's temperatures even warmer than yesterday. 50s and 60s. we struggled to get above 55 yesterday. today all the way up to 62 degrees in san jose. high 50s in vallejo, benicia, martinez, back through american canyon. antioch, concord, clayton and walnut creek, all at 60 degrees. we have the full forecast featuring your weekend coming up, but right now let's say morning to roqui. good morning, roberta. did you say this was fun? i think our morning commuters beg to differ! let's start with the san mateo from hayward to foster city that will take you 13 minutes. but, of course, those roads are very wet so be careful out there. and we have a crash in san mateo on northbound 101 before kehoe avenue. this is a two-car crash. and it is blocking a lane out there causing some slowdowns in the area at 12 miles per hour. now let's move over to the altamont pass, where usually it is slow but today, because of the rain, it's much more dangerous. so coming off 205 you're moving at 26 miles per hour. and as you head into livermore,
5:03 am
where it usually frees up, we have a crash to tell you about. westbound 580 before north livermore avenue, a big rig versus a car crash here and it's causing a lot of backup. that backup is almost here to greenville roadblocking the two right lanes there. now let's move to mass transit throughout the area. bart, ace train one, muni and caltrain are all on time so this would be a good option for you if you want to avoid the wet roads. kenny? >> thanks, roqui. now to the latest on the warehouse fire in oakland. we now know that it started on the first floor and trapped victims on the second floor. authorities also say that those people on the second floor had no way of getting out. there's no indication that there were fire alarms. federal investigators say that the building hadn't been inspected despite the fact that the department of planning and buildings had been called to the warehouse earlier this year. kpix 5's anne makovec is live on the scene with the very latest. anne? >> reporter: yeah. today the city council will
5:04 am
officially declare a state of emergency here in oakland. that means an easier time to access state and federal funds to help with the recovery process. in the meantime, the mayor and fire department working to find inspection records on that warehouse called the ghost ship where 36 people died friday night. despite of illegal interior construction and people living in the building only permitted as a warehouse, the building and planning department hadn't been inside the warehouse to inspect it in 30 years. in fact, the building isn't even listed in the fire department's database of properties. >> but it would be another tragedy if we did not learn lessons and take this opportunity to make decisive and immediate steps to improve our system. >> reporter: mayor libby schaaf says there needs to be better
5:05 am
communication within city departments and they need more code enforcement staff. the building department of 11 people answers 4,000 calls per year. the investigation into the cause of the fire continues. the atf is heading that up. they are saying it looks like it could likely be an electrical fire but they are not ruling anything out. they also don't believe at this point that it is arson. live in oakland anne makevoc, kpix 5. there is still one victim to unidentified of the 36 victims. we do know most of them were in their 20s and early 30s. friends and family say many of them were talented musicians and artists. some were performing the night of the fire. one was a student at san francisco state university. one victim was a student at cal. two others had recently graduated. the youngest was only 17 years old. he was the son of an alameda county sheriff's deputy. we also know three of the victims were from other countries. as anne said, federal officials
5:06 am
are still working to learn the exact cause of the fire. here's some video from the scene yesterday. fire investigators and engineers dug through the rubble looking for any sign of an ignition point. we are told the ghost ship did have stairwells on both ends of the event space, but neither led to an exit. >> smoke traveled up the stairwell, trapping the occupants on the second floor. the fire was well developed by the time the second floor occupants realized a fire was going on, on the first floor. >> it is excruciating to walk through to possibly relive those last moments when persons knew there was a fire. and there was no way out. >> there's no decision yet if anyone will be charged for the fire. we will keep you updated on the investigation and what happened with the state of emergency declaration today. we have all the latest information at president-elect donald trump continues his thank you tour in iowa today amid his

5:16 am
that will take you 14 minutes but we see some slowdowns because of the wet roads. crash in san mateo before kehoe avenue a two-car crash causing traffic to move at 28 miles per hour blocking a lane. slow on the southbound side as well due to an earlier crash so expect delays on 101 in san mateo currently in that area. now moving over to the altamont pass, traffic coming off 205, you're moving at just 18 miles per hour inching your way to north flynn road where speeds pick up to 40 miles per hour. but don't get excited because once you hit livermore we have a crash here involving a big rig versus a car and that's westbound 580 before north livermore avenue. that backup is well beyond greenville road and connecting with the altamont pass slow traffic, as well. the bay bridge toll plaza if you can see it because of the raindrops there from the carquinez bridge along the eastshore freeway to the maze will take you 20 minutes and expect no delays through the tolls. those metering lights will turn

5:31 am
anne? >> reporter: yeah. you can see it is raining here in oakland so it's a good thing that the recovery workers did so much work to clear out that site of that fire on 31st and international over the past few days. the emergency declaration you just mentioned is going to help free upstate and federal funds for the recovery process. in the meantime, the mayor and the city council here in oakland as well as the fire department are really scrambling to find records of exactly what went on in that warehouse called the ghost ship where 36 people died friday night. despite reports of illegal interior construction and people living in the building that was only permitted as a warehouse, the planning and building department had not been inside for 30 years to inspect it. in fact, the building isn't even in the fire department's database of properties. the atf continues its investigation into the cause of the fire and has released new information about how it

fire. ♪[ music ] time now 5:33. let's get a check of weather with roberta. >> it's been an interesting week. we started off on a chilly note. yesterday we had temperatures that actually dipped into the upper 20s and low 30s for overnight lows and we struggle to see highs up to about 53 and 55 yesterday. now, today we're replacing all that cooler air mass with a blanket of clouds and some rain. it's our live hi-def doppler radar. you see a lot of green on the screen that's light to moderate rainfall. san mateo bridge, you are wet right now. hayward, very wet conditions all the way across 880 as you make that switch on over to highway 84. look at the morning commute around 680 out of that 580/680 corridor in the dublin- pleasanton area. that's always a nasty commute to begin with and you toss in some wet conditions, very slippery when wet all the way to the sunol grade as you make tracks into the silicon valley for the morning commute. now, this area of low pressure, it is now moving onshore from

later today temperatures into the 60s. we'll talk more about that but first, here's roqui. thank you, roberta. it's 5:35. and let's take a look at your roads because as roberta said, it's raining so it's affecting your morning commute starting here in san francisco. we have a rollover crash involving three cars on northbound 280 before geneva avenue. now, we do have at least the right lane blocked. the chp may have multiple lanes blocked right now as they try to clear out this crash here. in the area, traffic is moving at just -- oh, it jumped from 3218 miles per hour there you go so if this is part of your morning commute, avoid it or give yourself extra time to get through there. leading to san mateo now, northbound 101 before kehoe avenue, this two-car crash still out there in the clearing stages. but traffic in the area is moving at just 9 miles per hour so extreme slow conditions and also slow on the southbound side due to an earlier crash, as well. moving now to the san mateo bridge, from hayward to foster city, that will take you 14 minutes. but as you can see, traffic is moving pretty slowly because
