6:32 am
that big rig was blocking both directions at last check. so just a heads up. you're not going to want to use 92 right now. if you need to get down into half moon bay, you're going to have to use an alternate. a lot of folks are taking 280 north and just heading up towards 35 and going down into pacifica. that's going to cost you a lot of extra time. if you are trying to get through 92, when they were allowing one-way traffic control, it was in the red but it's about 17 minutes between 280 and highway 1. we are tracking a couple of other problems. it's very foggy in certain areas. this is along 580 right near cutting and we have a crash near castro in that westbound direction so anyone trying to get to the richmond/san rafael bridge toll plaza, do look out for that. please reduce your speeds. increase the distance between you and the car in front of you and give yourself some extra time out on the roads this morning. to you. heck of your visibility pretty low in many areas especially along the coast, the north bay and right now through san francisco.
6:33 am
look at this view towards the east. so you will have to be up high plays like "salesforce tower" to even see that -- so you will have to be up high places like "salesforce tower" to even see that cloud coverage. we have typical morning fog and higher clouds. that's because of the monsoonal moisture that arrived yesterday afternoon bringing lightning strikes to places like the sierra but now we are starting to see higher clouds. low clouds though right around the golden gate bridge. so of course, that's in your morning headlines. we are definitely seeing early- morning fog affecting visibility this morning for many locations. but this afternoon, we'll notice those high clouds from the monsoonal moisture which will also bring us a chance of thunderstorms. developing news out of missouri. divers just recovered two more bodies after a boat capsized raising the death toll to 13. laura podesta reports on the search for four others still considered missing. reporter: rescue workers fanned out across missouri's table rock lake thursday searching for people

6:36 am
at the last meeting. >> we shouldn't be just guessing based on the statements of the russian ambassador or based on things we hear reported in the media. >> president trump tweeted a list of topics he hopes to discuss at the second summit including terrorism, security for israel, cyber attacks and trade. take a look at the new "time" magazine cover. it shows the faces of presidents trump and putin morphing together. "time" says the composite image is meant to represent this particular moment in u.s. foreign policy. it turns out that the nfl has not resolved its national anthem issue after all. wilmer flores reports from santa clara. reporter: we are at levi's stadium. and this is where the controversy all started. colin kaepernick "took a knee" back in 2016 during the national anthem. since then, there's been a lot of issues about how the nfl will actually address this. they came up with a policy in may but now they say their policy is on hold while they negotiate with the nfl players union.
6:37 am
now, back in may, the policy was that teams could be fined if players didn't stand during the national anthem. but it left punishing players up to the team. then yesterday, documents showed the miami dolphins could choose to punish players who protest during the anthem up to a four-game suspension. just hours later the league and players union said no punishment would be enforced issuing this joint statement: in order to allow this constructive dialogue to continue, we have come to a standstill agreement on the nfl p.a.'s grievance and on the nfl's anthem policy. no new rules relating to the anthem will be issued or enforced for the next several weeks while these confidential discussions are ongoing. the nfl took a lot of heat for not including the players association in these
6:38 am
discussions. >> their job as an american company is to allow freedom of expression. sometimes freedom of expression might be something you don't like. the nfl rule passed in may by the owners didn't allow place to sit or kneel during the anthem. but it did allow players to stay in the locker room. another issue here is whether president trump will weigh in on this policy. he has tweeted over a dozen times about the anthem and nfl protests in the past. we haven't seen anything this morning. reporting live here in santa clara, i'm jessica flores, kpix 5 . a new report is out this morning looking into whether the oakland police department is targeting african- americans. the mayor calls it unsettling. kpix 5's jackie ward reports. reporter: good morning. so the city of oakland spent a quarter million dollars to have data studied and the results are not surprising to a lot of people, including some community activists. in 2016, the oakland police department made more than
6:39 am
32,000 stops. 20,000 of those were african- americans or 61% of police stops. in 2017 it dropped to 60%. stanford social psychologist jennifer eberhart is the one who studied these findings and made up a list of 50 ways of improvement. oakland mayor libby schaaf is not pleased with what was found. >> the statistics are unsettling. the amount of disparity in policing outcomes, the the evidence of implicit bias is not acceptable. but being open and honest collecting data and changing policies and practices is the important first step to truly making progress in this area. >> earlier this week, the oakland city council voted against renewing eberhart's contract. some community members argued that they would rather see implementation than more
