6:00 am
homes in northern california. >> and president trump's ongoing war of words with the former aide is raising concerns about security at the white house. >> good morning, it is wednesday, august 15th. i'm michelle griego. >> and i'm brian hackney. kenny is off. we'll start first with traffic and weather. and a bent metal update with jaclyn. >> reporter: it's a busy start to your wednesday morning drive. over at the bay bridge toll plaza, that's where we're tracking an accident. chp has issued a traffic alert. two lanes are closed just past the toll plaza. it's involving a motorcycle and another vehicle, some injuries involved. emergency crews we saw them go through by watching this camera here, lots of flashing lights. so right now, 25 minutes heading into san francisco from the maze and you can expect to see those delays stick around throughout much of the morning commute. 80, the eastshore freeway, that's still in the green.
6:01 am
all the approaches to the maze looking good but slow into san francisco once you get to the maze. heading to sfo, 101 near 380, you can see traffic is moving at the limit in both directions. southbound you're fine. northbound, that's where we're seeing the delays out of burlingame. there was a deadly accident a little earlier this morning and northbound 101 approaching millbrae avenue, the exit is also shut down. so your cruising speed through that stretch below 10 miles per hour as you approach the scene there. two lanes remain closed so leaving only two lanes for drivers to get by to get over to sfo. so my advice, use el camino or 280 and take that up to 380 to get to sfo. here's a view from "salesforce tower" looking towards the east. you can see the bay bridge. normally our clouds are sitting lower and we don't get the views at this early- morning hour. but today, it looks like the clouds are sitting right there around 1,000 feet.
6:02 am
. we can see the lights this morning. cars are going across san francisco, it is cloudy and cool again, also that onshore breeze is out there yet again today. it's going to pick up this afternoon. so it's going to be stronger keeping our temperatures below normal. visibility is not bad anywhere. even half moon bay where you usually get thick fog at the coastline, it's behaving today. so that fog is not sitting as low so drivers should have no problems. fog extends into the central valley. so definitely seeing the signs of that onshore breeze pushing in the coastal clouds and also pushing in the cooler air. back to you guys. poor road conditions are costing people money according to new research. anne makovec reports from oakland. >> reporter: we know, brian,
6:03 am
time is money. so that cost is really exponential when it comes to traffic in the bay area. i'm here at the bay bridge toll plaza. jaclyn just told us about the "sig alert" on the other side of the bridge with two lanes closed. traffic is always a nightmare here in the morning commute. it's no exception today. it comes to the potholes, roadway conditions, it's causing money. but a new national transportation study group has crunched the numbers on what the road conditions and the traffic conditions cost the average driver. let's take a look at what they came up with. this is in several categories. for the san francisco-oakland drivers, it costs almost $3,000 annually, congestion more than $1,700 vehicle operating costs, more than $1,000, and safety costs more than $200. in san jose, the average driver is paying $2,700 annually because of the conditions we are dealing with, congestion almost $1,500, vehicle operating costs almost $1,000, and safety $287.
6:04 am
these figures are going to be used heavily in the campaign against a measure on the statewide ballot this november. that measure would repeal the gas tax that the legislature and the governor passed last year, 12 cents a gallon, that money going to road repairs and transportation projects. more on that in the next half- hour. live at the very slow bay bridge toll plaza, anne makovec makovec, kpix 5. search teams in italy will trying to find survivors in the rubble of a collapsed bridge. this is a live look at the disaster near genoa. search crews are there this morning. earlier this morning, search crews did pull out two more bodies of the rubble. the 51-year-old bridge failed yesterday during a sudden and violent storm. around 600 feet of the 3,000-
6:05 am
foot structure gave way. at least 39 people were killed in the 148-foot fall. about 15 others were hurt. emergency officials say at this point, it has turned from a search-and-rescue mission to a recovery effort. >> what is the likelihood that you'll find survivors this morning? >> well, it shrinks with the passing of time but we never lose hope of finding survivors. >> early signs point to a structural. it was blamed on a lack of maintenance. a private company operates the bridge with many of italy's toll roads. after a weeks long closure due to the ferguson fire, tourists can finally enjoy yosemite valley again. >> chance of a lifetime, smoke or no smoke. may not ever come back this way. so really glad we made it. >> mountainsides still
6:06 am
burning, smoky skies still lingering above and below. the ferguson fire is now 87% contained since it started about a month ago. more than 1,000 homes have been burned. and firefighters are still working on putting out flames near highway 41. meanwhile, family and friends are remembering the utah firefighter who was killed by fighting the mendocino complex fire up north. matt burchette died month after being a firefighter for 20 years. flags in draper city, utah, will be flying at half-staff this week. san francisco is launching a new task force to clean up the streets and their job is not for the faint of heart. kpix 5's jackie ward is in the city now with more on the clean-up patrol. good morning, jackie. you're already shaking your head, jackie. >> reporter: yeah. it's not for the faint of heart. great way to describe it. this program is keeping with the theme that mayor london breed has been promoting since her cagn that fransco stets ed cleaner. the city of san francisco is calling it their poop patrol. and it's pretty self- explanatory. five people plus a supervisor will be targeting hot spots in
6:07 am
the city and cleaning up the messes people and dogs leave behind. before, they waited for 311 calls but soon it will be pro- active and responding to calls, as well. yod sayshis is certainly a start but the root of the problem has to be addressed. >> we have to take responsibility for trying to change behavior. and so we need to start having that sort of conversation. >> this is possible in part because of the $11 billion budget she signed in the largest spending plan ever for the city. public works got $5.3 million, some of it to hire 44 new street cleaners. dpw will work with the public toilet program expanding hours at the five downtown locations and adding five more public toilets. people can also dispose of syringes and dog waste there. so this program starts in the next few weeks sometime in september and right now, there's no end date. from san francisco city hall,

6:09 am

the first black woman to represent a new england state in congress. an arbitration claim was filed yesterday by the trump administration against omarosa manigault newman. she allegedly breached her 2016 confidentiality agreement with the trump campaign. the filing came as omarosa released a new audio recording. on the tape, trump campaign aides discuss a rumor that president trump used the "n" word while filming the apprentice. the fact that omarosa was able to secretly record a conversation in the white house "situation room" raised security concerns. on sunday she released a tape of her firing by chief of staff john kelly. the man who ran the situation room under president obama says staffers are usually told to leave their phones in lead- lined lockers outside. >> because of the concern that they could be used as recording devices or worse yet as transmission devices and could be picking up conversations that are taking

6:15 am
investigation accuses hundreds of roman catholic priests abusing more than 1,000 children over 70 years. prosecutors say that's not counting victims who never came forward. the report also accuses church officials of engaging in a systemic cover-up. >> church officials routinely and purposefully described the abuse as horsepray and wrestling and inappropriate contact. it was none of those things. it was child sexual abuse. >> grand jurors examined six of the state's eight dioceses and identify 301 priests as predators. because the statute of limitations expired only 2 will face charges. a grand jury will look into sexual harassment allegations against the contra costa county assessor. yesterday, the board of supervisors voted unanimously to censure gus kramer accused
6:16 am
of sexually harassing two employees. he denies the allegations. the board also called on a grand jury to look into this alleged misconduct. kramer says he plans to stay in office. california voters will decide whether to overhaul the state's property tax system. four decades ago, voters passed prop 13 which capped property tax increases on residential and commercial properties. more than 860,000 signatures have been collected for a ballot measure in 2020 that would change the rules for commercial properties only. they would be tax-based on their current market value. the change could generate an estimated 6 to $10 billion in tax revenue statewide every year. the lone napa winery in rutherford kicks off the harvest today followed by a ceremony which begins about 11:30 a.m. guess that's news. >> it is! it is! you talk about wine, even at

6:18 am
you head out of san mateo, burlingame, heavy through that stretch. about 30 minutes from woodside to sfo. towards the bay bridge toll plaza, we have another accident. traffic alert remains in effect. we have two lanes blocked. it's just past the toll plaza there. emergency crews are on the scene. this is involving a motorcycle. so injuries involved and the eastshore freeway definitely starting to see some yellow sensors light up our screen there. so busy day on the roads. please be safe out there. hat's a check of your traff ic; over to you. thank you. taking a look from the "salesforce tower" camera camera, the clouds are moving in and out. first you see the bridge, then you don't. you can see it at the bottom of the screen right now. those are the lights where the logo is. right now it's a great start to the day again. here's a live look from the kpix 5 roof camera. the clouds have been sitting right above the bay bridge and

6:31 am
standard but the poor road conditions are costing us now. kpix 5's anne makovec is live in oakland with the latest on a new study. >> reporter: it's not just costing us in terms of patience. there's a nonprofit national transportation study group called trip that crunched the numbers. here's what they say that our local road conditions are costing the average driver. in the san francisco-oakland region, almost $3,000 annually when it comes to congestion. we're talking time and burning gas. over $1,700 for vehicle operating costs as a result of driving on rough roads. more than $1,000. and safety the cost of traffic crashes more than $200. in san jose, more than $2,700 annually congestion, almost $1,500. vehicle operating costs almost a grand, safety $287. these figures will be used no doubt in the campaign against a measure on the statewide ballot this november.
6:32 am
that measure would repeal the state gas tax passed last year by the legislature, 12 cents a gallon to go to roadway repairs and other transportation projects. the arguments are on full swing on both sides of that debate. >> we have a huge public safety problem right now in our state with roads that are in disrepair. >> once voters find out that that's what we're talking about is an automatic stream of money to government with no reforms and accountability, they will vote no. >> reporter: a kpix/surveyusa poll of california voters done in june showed that 46% want to repeal the tax, 33% do not and 22% are undecided. this is what things look like and this is what we are getting used to here in the bay area. it's about 6:30 a.m. and this is what it looks like
6:33 am
on the bay bridge toll plaza. i'm live at the bay bridge toll plaza. anne makovec, kpix 5. >> they need some trains to get on the bay bridge. you know that trains used to run on the bay bridge? >> i didn't know that. it was the lower deck. the key system until 1958 or something like that. >> i don't know the exact date. >> something like that. i can't remember that time. oh, wait, i wasn't around. >> you know, the whole world happened before you were alive! the whole world happened. >> i know, brian. i know. >> anyway. either way, it's slow this morning. what's happening? it's slow this morning. a backup at the bay bridge toll plaza. we had a motorcycle crash and had two lanes blocked just past those -- that toll plaza there. so right now 25 minutes heading into san francisco. northbound slow due to a
6:34 am
deadly accident that we have been tracking since 4 a.m. one lane is closed. expect delays. it's going to be a slow ride after you pass 92 and head through burlingame out of san mateo. we are seeing that backup. so it's about 32 minutes from woodside up to sfo. highway 4 just jumped into the red if you are heading out of antioch. we are seeing about a 30- minute ride to 680. 580 in the yellow likely to get into the red if we just approach that 40 minute travel time between 205 and 680. and the eastshore freeway definitely seeing those brake lights there as you make your way westbound over towards the bay bridge toll plaza. your 580 approach still looking okay as you make your way towards the maze. hat's a check of your traffic; over to you. thank you, jaclyn. so the "salesforce tower" camera view keeps changing on me. this one towards the west, i promise at the bottom you can see the city but not so much
6:35 am
now. the clouds at the top. this view showing where the clouds are, 1,070 feet in the sky. not bad for commuters. cool in san francisco, 59 degrees. a little moisture in the air, as well. not so good for the air. you may want to grab a jacket. in livermore 60 degrees. low 60s d co this afternoon, inland communities should see sunshine today. it's cloudy now. but the cloud coverage will burn off. because of the west winds right here, it's going to be cool all across the bay area. cooler than normal i should say, pretty comfortable for many of you. sfo now sustained winds at 10, same with downtown san francisco and in oakland. east of berkeley though starting to notice a breeze in the hills. i'll talk about your afternoon temperatures coming up. san francisco is getting its hands dirty cleaning up city streets. kpix 5's jackie ward is live with the stinky details. jackie. reporter: yeah. this is a problem that really smells but one that mayor london breed is throwing money at to try to make better. it is this so-called new poop patrol to be on the streets of
6:36 am
san francisco soon going to known problem areas with fecal matter on the sidewalk and cleaning it up. the department of public works says this new team will consist of five workers and a supervisor. in addition to still responding to 311 calls that are reporting this problem, the poop patrol will be trying to address the issue before those calls even come in. this is part of mayor breed's big push to make san francisco less dirty. she recently signed an $11 billion budget the largest in the city's history. she gave public works 5.3% more money. >> we have to clean the city up. i think part of what we have to do a better job of doing is cleaning the city up and getting more people to feel responsible for doing the same. >> reporter: dpw also plans on expanding the city's pit stop public toilet program and will add hours to existing locations anbuilore locations throughout downtown. limited access and hours have been two of the main things people who use the facilities have complained about in the past.

6:38 am
campaign chairman paul manafort. he pled not guilty to 18 tax and banking charges. the defense rested its case yesterday without calling any witnesses. prosecutors say manafort failed to pay taxes on $16 million of earnings while consulting for pro-russian politicians in the ukraine. he is also accused of lying on bank loan applications. internal documents from the epa contradict public arguments for rolling back vehicle emissions. the proposal was announced earlier this month. the department of transportation says that requiring more fuel-efficient cost will lead to more traffic deaths. according to a memo, a senior epa official believes it would have the opposite effect. california is suing to block the effort to freeze mileage targets at 2020 levels and prevent states from setting their own standards. well, kids in the bay area across the country are starting go back to school and allergists areminding families

right near millbrae avenue. that off-ramp remains shut down. and the backup at peninsula avenue at this point. do expect delays if you are heading from woodside. 30 minutes to sfo. if you want to use 280 that's at the limit. el camino is another alternate route but that is likely to be much slower. give yourself some extra time if you are heading over to sfo. southbound direction, you're fine. you're in the green making your way towards the airport there. foggy ride for drivers heading across the golden gate bridge. and if you are making your way through petaluma this morning, good news, speeds are in the green in both directions. hat's a check of your traffic; over to you. well, good morning, everybody. happy wednesday! we have views from the "salesforce tower" camera. clouds are just above where those cameras are located so right now you can see the bay bridge. it's of course gray and gloomy to start off this wednesday morning. but many inland communities
