9:03 am
minutes as you're traveling out of richmond darya. james, back to you. thank you. and a 9, 0, 2, and breaking news that we're following from overnight. san francisco police released pictures of a person of interest in a deadly shooting on muni. yeah. man was killed in that shooting wednesday morning. it was at the castro station. >> police are asking for this person that they'd like to question to come forward and talk to investigators. we have kron 4 sarah stinson following the story for us up in the newsroom. sarah. >> yeah, a 27 year-old man died at the scene in a 70 year-old man was taken to the hospital after shots rang out on a muni train. and now san francisco police are releasing photos of a person of interest. take a look for yourself. police want to speak with the man seen on your screen right now. not naming him as a suspect, but as a person of interest. now, the shooting happens just before 10 yesterday morning inside the train between forest hill and castor stations. a very scary situation, as you can imagine for muni riders. one city supervisor said in the statement that a heated
9:04 am
argument happened between the shooter and victim and then 3 to 4 shots rang out. officers rushed to the castro station and found the victims in the train. the shooter fled the scene. police reviewed the video that showed the shooting and they describe the suspect wpas a man in dark clothing. investigators are hoping any witnesses will come forward to help solve this case. this morning, 7 year-old victim is recovering and is expected to be ok now. the police department really wanted to assure the community that this shooting is isolated and they do not believe it's related to pride festivities and they don't believe the shooting was targeting any specific group. this investigation is ongoing and reached out to the police to see if they than the update for us this morning. haven't heard back yet. so stay tuned for now. i'm sarah stinson reporting live from the newsroom. back to you. ok? thank you very much, sara. >> more breaking news that we're following is from overnight. there was a water main break and its cause. major flooding in concord. take a look. this is the 1500
9:05 am
block of monument boulevard shortly after midnight when the water started gushing. and then you can see it basically turned this intersection into a lake and keep in mind, this is happening in the middle of a drought. so a lot of water being wasted there. it's not clear exactly how much or how long it's going to take to get a handle on this. we do know that you're going have to detour around it until the water subsides. 9, 0, 5 is the time right now. other news that we're following. yeah, also conquered, by the way, and you have to deal more of a delay. and that is if you ride bart, yeah, give yourself extra time because they're still trying to get that track. fix the warped. >> during the hot temperatures this week, it's causing headaches for many will tran standing by live in the east bay with that good morning. well, >> it just dawned upon me, james, that it's hard enough to get up early in the morning. well, now you have to get up at least 5 to 15 minutes earlier because this problem still not fix. we won't have to deal with it
9:06 am
like what we saw on tuesday as far as the heat when it was like one, 0, 6, in concord at that time and cause the steel. believe it or not to work, which is why james, you talked about the derailment, but because it's still not fix, you can clearly see those people on the platform. so the trains are not coming as quickly because they're sharing instead of having 2 tracks going opposite directions that the slowdown share that tracked, let the train go by and then go by themselves. >> that's why what's going on is could be the new norm for the immediate future. so what happened on tuesday? right? there are about 60 people on a train going through the concord, pleasant hill. bart stations got so hot, partial derailment and then those people had to be treated. no major injuries. they had to be escorted off the tracks. they came out there, remove the train. they spent all day yesterday trying to fix it. did not get fix. so this is
9:07 am
day 2 of a full day to try to tackle the problem. got a chance to talk to some of our writers, james and area. they said bart, yes, it was bad. what happened on tuesday. but my oh, my did. they dodged major bullet. >> it was a mess at me. i just hope they get that together because imagine if it was light. if it was like hi, all right. and it derail it would kick a lot of people. good thing. it was low way kind of failing to bush's because anything other than that, if it was high as went off the track in, you know, kind of like here. >> so he was pointing actually to that platform right there. look how high that platform is. can you imagine it dangling at that particular time? as far as what's going on, that was not the first time it has happened from time to time. bart trying to be mindful of what's going on with that moving forward. but unfortunately, in the meantime, you are caught in the middle of all this. so it's going to be hard in the morning. hard in the afternoon
9:08 am
in both directions because even antioch, they have to share that track. yes, antioch is not the heavy lifting location, but still you get that situation that you have to share as opposed to 2 tracks. no timetable on when this will be complete. back to you. all right. thanks a lot. well. >> well, 9, 0, 8, is the time. let's turn our attention to the peninsula now where crews have made some pretty good progress in containing the edgewood fire burning a redwood city. it's burned about 20 acres so far. but the good news is it's 90% contained. the fire began tuesday afternoon. it was during those brutally hot temperatures there off edgewood road in canada. road. we spoke with one resident who had to evacuate her home as the flames getting closer and closer. >> timely we were in the house and suddenly we heard a big bang and all the other tree city went off. so we were wondering what was going on we went outside and we started seeing some really big smoke. the la copters and you know,
9:09 am
the planes circling and starting to spray water. so they did they did. a really good job and the cape and the kept us safe. >> and the fire was stopped before it could destroy homes. thankfully pg e, though, still working to restore power to several homes in the area with no word yet on what caused that fire or when that power could be restored, which is something stanford university really wants to find out because those power transmission lines also. you know, gave power to the to the with that down. they don't have any power right now for the main campus classes have been canceled conferences, day camps for today and tomorrow also had to be rescheduled. the school posted a statement on its website saying that they're prepared to be without power for the next several days. >> that's not easy. how a brush fire cause some significant traffic delays in san jose last that was an easy 2 drive through this wall of smoke. this is about 7 o'clock off of highway 2.37. and not only was it a visual impairment, but also it had to close down 2 lanes. those are
9:10 am
closed for a while. we're still lurking looking to see how big the fire got, how it started. and then we're also following the latest on a wildfire burning in solano county. firefighters working on containment lines in there, still keeping their eye out for hot spots in the wind to fire. that's because it's near winters. it has grown to more than 110 acres at last check. it was 90% contained this is burning north of vacaville near the city of winters and the yolo county line. evacuations were ordered. but those orders have been lifted. cal fire still says, though several structures could be in danger. nobody's been hurt. after nearly 2 years of intense and bitter debate. lowell high school in san francisco is going back to a merit based admission system. take a look outside the board of oducation building on franklin street where they were holding a meeting in the school board is voting inside friends of lowell and the chinese parent advisory council. they asked the board to drop the lottery system
9:11 am
that they tried for a couple years. bring back the old merit based admissions and in the end, that's what the school board did. the new admission policy will apply to incoming freshmen starting in the fall of 2023. >> still ahead on the kron 4 morning news, a man bitten by a shark while swimming in monterrey. witnesses had to jump into the water to save them. we'll have their story in their own words. plus, san francisco businesses are booming because of big events coming back to town will tell you why they say this feels so good after so long. >> and today, a cooler one towards the coast, but still pretty hot inland. san jose. you're still at 94 today. oakland, 80 in san francisco, mid 70's. more on your forecast is ahead. >> and we've been tracking your busy thursday morning. commute in traffic is starting to improve. we'll have an updated look at your drive times once we get back.
9:12 am

9:14 am
>> 9.14, the time. right now we are checking out the weather different than it has been with all the heat. look at this. what you can kind of see it. here is a little breezy this morning, but we really saw the ocean when the marine layer come in, nature's air conditioning for the bay area kick in this morning. alice, nice guys for sure. take some more we will get more to even more of it tomorrow. expect a really foggy start starting to see some seaborn enough. now the fog still visible out in the distance over the bay but
9:15 am
actually covered a little bit of berkeley and oakland earlier this morning. now you've got nothing but sunshine. as for the rest of the day ahead of us, fog stays put for most of the day at the coast in through the golden gate. the rest of the bay area solid dose of sun really even growing even clear as the cloud cover brought to us by monsoonal moisture starts to diminish. come the afternoon. we've seen thunderstorms along the central coast, central valley and up into the sierra nevada. those are also going to start to diminish. so ahead of us today is going to be a slightly cooler day inland, but cooler at the coastline tomorrow fog to start again and then sunshine reappears during the afternoon. and it's going to continue to be that way through the weekend. generally just a bit cooler still hot. the further inland you get, though, if you're heading to the city for pride weekend, specially pride sunday, make sure that you're doing so with a couple of extra layers morning hours will be a bit foggy and cloudy at times. but as you know, san francisco, things can warm up quick when you're under the sunshine enough. so that mission in financial districts today we'll get up into the mid 70's 60's at the coastline
9:16 am
for most areas in the 80's to 90's for really all the rest of the bay area. san carlos at 93 today, mountain view at 92 san jose at 94. then you've got dublin sitting at 93 mid 90's for concord, walnut creek and danville, closer to 80 from oakland, berkeley, of to richmond, antioch, our warmest spot yet again at 98 degrees today. no one quite getting to the triple digits, but some of us are getting close tomorrow. saturday sunday, all generally cooler than we've been low 90's inland, upper 70's to low 80's along the bay and coastal areas hanging out in the 60's rain. john, thank you for that. if you're headed into the city right now from the east bay, a little under 17 minutes to make that drive this morning. >> so traffic has been backed up earlier and now things are getting better out there. 30 minute drive as you make your way from 80 to one o one heading across towards the peninsula and the south bay. let's check on things there. a 34 minute drive starting at 85 up towards menlo park. 2.37. no accidents or delays. and 2.80, moving pretty nicely.
9:17 am
still fog along the golden gate bridge. 30 minutes for you. 37 to the tolls and the richmond, sandra fell bridge about 8 minutes starting. james, back to you. >> time to talk winners and losers on wall street with financial expert rob black. joining us this morning, rob, on a day where we're seeing the nasdaq in the green. nice to see that. what headlines are jumping out at you. >> we're striving for a comeback. nice to see the but don't count on it. we haven't hit bottom yet. we haven't hit panic selling. we haven't had in a company implosion, massive earning cut backs. we haven't had a recession yet. there hasn't been a flag to plant, so to speak. so missus, temporary were oversold. and that's what we're seeing. trump house in front of congress to get in today talking about the word recession. he's never brought that up last year. this time is transitory. inflation was real inflation as aggressive interest rate hikes. and now it's he's talking about potential recession. nike saying we're leaving russia,
9:18 am
ukraine. it's one person or revenues. no big deal the article than anything else for them to say at this point in time. elon musk is saying he's factors are caught in germany in taxes are costing billions and furnish a furnace of cash as they don't have enough supply to put together cars this point in time. and last year, james, we pulled in 485 billion to charities, but that's not keeping up with inflation. so inflation is giving hurting our charitable giving these days. >> wow. okay. you brought me down. you brought me way down with not but it is the way things are at the moment. we also had a breaking news story this morning. i want to pick your brain about a san francisco based juul. the fda ruling that they are no longer allowed to sell their products here in america. that sounds like a pretty big deal for them. obviously. >> yeah, it's 2 in particular, not enjoys a dominant player in cigarettes. e-cigarettes back in 2017 we would send reporters from kron out stores and cover the e-cigarette
9:19 am
boom. and we're wondering about teenagers and middle school, a school and middle school kids. they're they're smoking fruit flavor. it was advertised towards them as a safer alternative to back to speak. but that's been shut down pretty aggressively. but it hasn't really kind of messed with the under 18 crowd in the last 2 years, 2 million high schoolers and middle schoolers smoke e-cigarettes. so it's still a very big problem. if you're a parent like i am out reinvested, i think at its height, jewels worth about 38 billion. now it's worth about 5 billion. so we seemed on the right thing in the biden administration cut down the amount of nicotine that can be put in cigarettes in the future level. so trying to wean addiction off of an investment for cigarettes. i guess you could say companies like philip morris are taking it on the chin back. >> that's crazy. and then this last story really want to chat with you about, too, because we're talking about something that's and a lot of people personally, i'm renting right
9:20 am
now with aspirations of owning a home at some point. but i feel like i'm getting out pace. the cost of houses continue to get higher and higher faster than i can say for it. and my rent is also start to go up. i like to be trapped in this for the rest of my life. >> yeah, this is my son. i gave to a police officer 15 years ago. a lot of oakland when he called into my show, i said it's ok to be a renter in the bay area as long as you own some property elsewhere will bring up that advice again for you. james, is i think you can say you and your sugar book or maybe want to retire in phoenix or tampa or and stocked in our sacramento el dorado hills. you can buy a home there in rented for the next few years. it's expensive. and landlords not easy, but that's one alternative. friends are up 5.2% year over the ability to save for a down payment is hurt with inflation costs on everything from food to energy in our lives. another idea you don't want to buy out of market for retirement home and rent here would be consider what are called reax public. a real estate investment trusts
9:21 am
you can on wall street. you can e-mail me robert, rob, like show dot com we'll see a list of some ideas. reits are a way of like owning a old folks community. any evidence for the business that's there. that's painted evident. also get exposure, the real estate as well. and another thing you can do, james is really, really want to weigh is safe cash for a down payment and wait for closure. commercial certain airing on kron when they say contact an attorney to avoid foreclosure commercial. that's typically a bi sine. we get them about every 15 years on kron. i would say maybe 2 to 3 years after his session with people are having trouble paying their bills. that might be the next fight. opportunity to get in on the ground prices but not interest rates. okay. >> okay. that pick my going on there, right? yeah. that piqued my interest. that last i talked to more about that because i do feel like prices are getting so out of control and yet people are getting loans for these mortgages that i do know is that sustainable to keep those payments up, especially if there are just
9:22 am
mortgages that are eventually going to kick in with some sort of higher payment down the road weth interest rates on the way up. there's got to be something there for those that are aspiring to buy a house at some point, right? >> average mortgage costs in san jose state started the year's up $36,000 a year and servicing costs about $3,000 a month times 12 month. so that tells you it's all i know my salary to go up that much now. wow. all right, rob, thank you as always. fantastic information. >> if you have a question but if you want maybe some advice on those reached a list that he was talking about e-mail robber up like dot com. otherwise you can reach him on facebook and twitter. post your comments post your questions. post the topics you'd like him to talk about, rob. we'll see tomorrow.
