5:15 am
sexually assaulted her. this is according to two people familiar with the investigation who spoke to the associated press. and some employees of the hotel told investigators that strauss- kahn made passes at them and invited one woman to his room while she was off duty. strauss-kahn is right now under house arrest. he's denying the allegations of the maid. overnight nato airplanes launched more than 20 air strikes against targets in tripoli, libya. you can look at the scene there. smoke can be seen off in the distance there rising from an area near libyan leader moammar gadafi's compound. look at those shots. nato attack was one of the heaviest against tripoli since the nato mission started just two months ago. we now know the name of a man gunned down in antioch over the weekend. he was shot and killed own sunday. it happened on b street shortly before 8:00. he later died at a local hospital. now it's still unclear what led
5:16 am
up to that shooting and so far no arrests have been made. time now 5:15. sonoma county supervisors are expected to announce major job cuts at today's board meetings. the plan calls for eliminating more than 200 jobs to help balance a huge budget deficit. however things could have been a lot worse. previous estimates called for as many as 500 job cuts. early retirements and increased city fees helped to reduce the number of projected job losses. well, this morning the santa clara county board of supervisors will discuss how to add a new area code to the silicon valley. 669 area code is coming. supporting the overlay method of implementing the new area code. that method would not require anyone to change their existing 408 numbers. the other option though is a geographic split where people could end up with a different area code for their home, cell phone and then their business phone. >> that will be different.
5:17 am
>> you lived in southern california. i did. we've been through that a few times. >> a couple times. >> many different area codes being added. >> it happens. may happen here. time now 5:16. sal, what's happening in the commute particularly san francisco? how are they doing? doing well, dave and pam. so 1101 coming up to the 80 split looking good. if i were a southern california traffic reporter the 101 looking good up to the 80. but we don't do that here. let's move along and take a look at westbound bay bridge on interstate 80 westbound coming up to the toll plaza. the traffic is moving along pretty welcoming in to the city. also westbound 92 the san mateo bridge that traffic looks good over to the bay shore freeway. no problems on 280 up and down the peninsula. 5:17. let's go to steve. how's the 880 at the 580? >> doing well up to the minimaze, steve. >> thank you, sal. good morning. mostly clear. patchy fog out there. cool out there. there's really no sign of any change in the pattern. if anything it's going to get
5:18 am
cooler. what? yes, i know. i'll show you why here in second. today will be sunny. the wind not as bad as yesterday although rather decent gusts especially along the coast and higher elevations. nothing compared to yesterday morning. but look at the lows when you lose some of that breeze and some of the cloud cover temperatures take a tumble. mid-40s and low 40s in the north bay. fairfield 47. concord, livermore, san jose, mountain view, redwood city, san francisco all in the upper 40s or very low 50s. a westerly breeze or a west- southwest. so from the golden gate and sfo right over san pablo bell out to the delta it's all a sea breeze. and temperatures will continue to remain on the cool side. a series of systems just keeps rotating and rotating. you know where the heat is? it's in texas. texas in the middle of the country. makes sense. if it's cool here downstream it has to be warm and that's what's going on. it's just our turn for the pattern to be locked in. then we focus our attention to that system digging in the middle of your screen that's going to give us clouds and another cool down. looks like rain for tomorrow. today patchy fog.
5:19 am
it's not going to be much warmer everyone though lots of sunshine it will be sunny and breezy. by tonight increasing clouds and rain again mainly north bay. not a lot but enough. into may if you're talking about rain it doesn't matter how much you get. it's going to make it. sunny and breezy, patchy fog. it will be slightly warmer. but really not much. 60s, upper 60s or low to mid- 70s. just not enough in the way of any heat. 70s for many that should be in the low 80s by now. that's not happening. san mateo 66. mountain view 67. san jose 70. stays very, very cool. temperatures i don't know where -- should be mostly sunny today. cloudy with rain moving in tomorrow and then we just see slight warm up as we get to the end of the week. but then another cool down late in the week. well, today chrysler executives will formally announce the repayment of their bailout loans from the u.s. and canadian governments. the loans cost the company more than $1 billion last year. but now the automaker has arranged for private funding
5:20 am
that will save chrysler about $300 million a year in interest. today ford will announce its german researchers have developed a car seat with sensor that is can monitor a driver's heart. now the company says the seat could help heart patients monitor their health and provide an early warning of a heart attack. the announcement comes a week after ford says it's also working on a system to let motorists keep track of their blood sugar while driving. amazing. all right. let's check in on the numbers. where we start the day quite a drop after concerns mostly about the global economy. the dow jones off 130 points. nasdaq and s&p 500 slipping as well. and right now the european markets are rising, but analysts are saying you know there's still a lot of concern about debt. so they're not quite sure why the numbers are up but we could see a little bit of a bump today. time now 5:20. the crash of a tour bus on interstate 80 sent about 13 people to the hospital. what that driver says happened
5:21 am
right before the bus went out of control. and the sharks are skating on thin ice as they get ready for tonight's crucial game in their playoff series. find out what areas today are likely to be effected by the weather. 5:20. we'll be right back.

5:24 am

[ cheering and applause ] >> san jose santa teresa high school held its commencement ceremony last night. the seniors also received a photo of 16-year-old jordan
5:25 am
michelle west. the santa teresa student and cheerleader died in a drunk driving accident last november on highway 101. now her family says the driver responsible for that crash graduated last night despite that accident. >> it is okay to allow an underage drunk driver that killed a fellow student the honor and privilege to cross the stage. there's something very wrong when this is allowed. >> statistics show a third of all alcohol-related teenage deaths happen during graduation season. those three months of april, may and june. san jose sharks are facing elimination tonight in game five of the western conference finals. the sharks are down three games to one in their series against the vancouver canucks. shark captain joe thornton will play tonight despite his injury in game four. fred is in vancouver with the team. you can watch his reports later today right here on ktvu channel 2. fans of lady gaga are apparently too much for the online retailer offered the
5:26 am
popular singer's new album born this way for 99 cents yesterday in a down load only offer. that one day deal sparked a huge response bringing traffic on the site to a crawl and it left some fans without the album. now amazon says anyone who ordered the album yesterday will still be able to down load it for the promotional price. an 88-year-old man was attacked inside his men lo park home. we have more on the investigation now underway to find the people responsible plus two other incidents that could be related. >> reporter: bart's police officers could be getting more tasers. we'll tell you about the move bart's board of directors is considering today and why they're doing it. and the news leak that could hamper the investigation into the beating of giants fan bryan stow. good morning. northbound 280 traffic is moving well approaching 880. we'll tell you more straight ahead.
5:27 am
5:28 am
5:29 am
good morning to you. welcome back. this is the ktvu morning news. it's tuesday already may 24th. i'm dave clark. good morning. i'm pam cook. time now 5:30. what's the weather like, steven? cool in the morning and sunny. we have the westerly wind. 16 plus miles per hour right now at sfo. about 15 at fairfield. another sea breeze but not the howling wind we had yesterday unless you're in the higher
5:30 am
elevations or coast. 60s and low 70s. here's sal. steve, right now traffic on the san mateo bridge looks good heading out to the high-rise and over to the bay shore. also this morning we're looking pretty good here in san francisco. northbound 101 traffic is moving at the speed limit to the 80 split. coming up on 5:30 let's go back to dave and pam. topping our news now at 5:30, the bart board is considering buying more tasers for its police force. ktvu's allie rasmus says the move has ties to the fatal shooting of oscar grant at a bart station on new year's day 2009. allie. >> reporter: well, pam, it's something bart's board of directors will consider at a meeting later on this morning whether or not to spend $140,000 to buy more tasers for its police officers. right now we are at the fruit vale bart station. and the idea -- this idea to give more tasers to police officers algosis back to something that happened here two and a half years ago. that's when bart passenger oscar grant fatally shot by a bart police officer.
5:31 am
that officer, mesherle, his defense was that he thought he was using his taser and not his gun. since then bart's outside consultants have recommended that the police force use tasers more consistently to avoid confusion. but here is the problem. there are not enough tasers to give one to every officer. the police force has 60 tasers right now. so that $140,000 would allow bart to buy 130 more tasers so that each officer would have his or her own taser. nowen, again, this is something bart's board of directors will consider at its meeting later on this morning whether or not to spend $140,000 to buy more tasers for its officers. a little later on this morning we're hoping to talk to someone from bart about this proposal and talk to some of the passengers here to see what they think about it. live in oakland, allie rasmus, ktvu channel 2 news. billions of dollars in funding for new muni projects in san francisco could be at risk. all because of a contentious contract negotiation between muni operators and the transit
5:32 am
agency. chronicle reports the operator's union wants the federal government to withhold the funding if muni uses the recently passed proposition g in contract negotiations. now prop g says arbitrators must consider how proposed contracts would effect fares and service. the union says that they're legal. the lawsuit over prop g is pending in state court. time now 5:31. men lo park police are investigating a violent home invasion that left an 88-year- old man injured. and police say two other incidents may be related. ktvu's kraig debro just talked to the police. he's back with us live now to tell us what they're saying about this investigation. kraig. >> reporter: yeah, dave. we just drove over here from the police department. it's about two miles away. this is the 1000 block of wind mere. this is where the first incident on sunday occurred. we don't know the exact address. we're trying to find that out so we can maybe talk to the homeowner. police in men lo park trying to catch two suspects in connection with this home
5:33 am
invasion. it happened here in the 1000 block of wind mere around 5:15 on sunday. we spoke with the police. officer tells me two men kicked in the door to the garage and then broke into the home through a door lead # leading from the garage to the kitchen. >> when they were confronted by the homeowner, the homeowner was struck with some type of object knocking him unconscious. >> reporter: was there any reason for these guys to strike this person? was this person trying to get them out of the house? >> no. it doesn't appear there was any reason why they struck him. >> reporter: the man was knocked unconscious but woke up two hours later. his injuries are not life threatening. during that time however two other attempted robberies of similar methods of operation occurred in men lo park. one on central avenue and one on laurel avenue. resident on central avenue says he heard somebody pounding on his door. didn't see anybody. called the police. a resident on laurel avenue actually heard the pounding on the door, looked out his window and saw somebody standing out there.
5:34 am
the description's kind of vague. going to have more on that a little later. but in both cases the people suspected in the attempted robberies got away as well. we're also working on a possible connection between what happened on sunday and what happened in another nearby city worked on a story about a month ago. sounds very similar talking to police about that right now. reporting live at men lo park, kraig debro, ktvu channel 2 news. this morning los angeles police are scrambling to limit the potential damage from a leak in the bryan stow beating case. late yesterday some news websites in los angeles area published a mug shot of suspect ramirez. now we've had this sketch though, but the photo from his parole file was not supposed to be released to the public. ramirez is believed to closely resemble the sketch that was released. the media outlets immediately removed the leaked mug shot after getting angry calls from the l.a.p.d. now the investigation into the attack outside dodgers stadium
5:35 am
is ongoing. and detectives now worry that the leak could compromise their entire case especially if witnesses see the picture before ramirez appears in a police line up. suspect's mother is also angry but for a much different reason. she says police arrested the wrong man. >> it's not my son. it is not my son. and i feel sorry for the family, but believe me my son is not the right person that you guys got. it is not. >> the leak may also delay ramirez's arraignment scheduled for today. the ex-convict and known gang member remains in jail on $1 million bail. police are still looking for a second suspect and the woman who drove the two men away from dodgers stadium. time now 5:35. well, members of bryan stow's family are sharing their very emotional reaction to the news that a suspect is in custody. they held a news conference right outside san francisco general hospital yesterday where bryan stow remains in critical condition seven weeks after the attack.
5:36 am
now the family members were wearing l.a.p.d. hats and t-shirts showing their appreciation. bryan stow's mother says she got a call from a detective just minutes after the arrest. >> and he said ann i wanted to give you some information before you hear it on the news. and at that time my heart just dropped. we were very excited that piece of the puzzle -- one of the pieces, had been put in place. >> family members say their main goal now is to try to speed up bryan stow's recovery. they're talking to him. they're often playing music in his hospital room. we have a special section on our channel 2 website dedicated to the bryan stow case. you can find all of the latest updates at it's arraignment day for almurisi. he's the man accused of trying to storm the cockpit of a jet bound for san francisco earlier this month. a judge ordered almurisi to remain in jail while he undergoes a psychiatric
5:37 am
evaluation. he calls the yemen immigrant a threat to society and a risk to jump bail. his family members say almurisi is suffering from mental problems and is not a terrorist. deliberations resume today in the chauncey bailey murder trial. after two months of testimony, closing arguments wrapped up yesterday. yusef bey iv and mackey accused of killing the newspaper reporter in august 2007 as he walked to work in downtown oakland. brusard testified that he shot the oakland post journalist on orders from bey. the defense says brusard is not credible. time now 5:37. today in joplin, missouri, they're now searching for survivors of the big tornado that killed at least 116 people. coming up for you at 5:45 we'll bring you a live report from joplin, missouri. and look at these pictures. we'll tell you how residents are coping today with the massive devastation. lawmakers on capitol hill want to make sure there's enough disaster relief money available to help americans effected by all of this bad

5:39 am
all that stuff. >> that's right. we're looking at the bridges and the winds. we're also looking at the golden gate bridge and want to see what's going on here. traffic is moving along okay if you are driving across that span you'll see traffic is moving well in both directions. also the morning commute looks good on westbound bay bridge approach. and there are no major problems on the span getting into the san francisco. now then this is a look at interstate 880. sometimes when it's windy it's windy here, but today the wind isn't that bad. and according to steve it won't be as bad today as it was yesterday. the day before, boy, that was pretty windy. i know steve is tired of hearing it. hello, steve. never tired of hearing it, sal. >> well, you probably get a lot of people talking about it. >> people always talking about the winds on twitter. that was yesterday. today will not be as bad. sunny and breezy. we can't lose that. in fact i think we're just carrying -- usually march is the wind month, but we're carrying that right into the end of may and into early june. i don't see much of a pattern
5:40 am
change. patchy fog, sunny and breezy. tomorrow cloudy and cooler. no doubt about it in the north bay how far south this system goes. around sfo, oakland, vallejo, benicia north somewhere around that line. i'll see how it irons out here. expect a cloudy cooler day tomorrow. the weekend the all important weekend the holiday weekend it will not be very warm. it looks like a little warmer. then another system comes in on sunday for another cool down. doesn't look like it's a rain system but it could be a windy system. again, the pattern's locked in. so everything i mean you're talking you have to look at the big picture, the big picture. putting a big boulder in a stream everything just kind of backs up that's what's happening here. we're locked into a cool pattern. until it changes i don't see any difference. these are weak systems coming in but the mere fact they're making it along with very cold ocean temperatures keep us going with the wind and cool. so 40s for some. low 40s here for napa. 42 a lot of 40s including san francisco at 49. westerly wind for many or southeast at san jose, but
5:41 am
there's a sea breeze in place. and it's been there for a while. the next system looking pretty good. yes, it is. it's getting good cold air support. strong jet stream for this time of year. usually this time of year the jet stream's on vacation. it heads north and high pressure builds in. it's not happening. this system will bring in rain tomorrow. today patchy fog, staying cool. it's all right to stay cool. weather-wise staying cool. 60s and low 70s in areas that should be in the low 80s. and then that system will sweep in tomorrow for cloudy cooler conditions and rain again. i say mainly north bay. maybe a quarter to half inch for some. this is a rain and cloud forecast. again, i don't show these two often because i think the finer details are lost. but the fact is we'll probably have some increasing clouds later today. but i'm still going sunny to mostly sunny. tomorrow morning watch what happens here. there it is. starting to move into mends county, sonoma county near marin county tomorrow morning at this time and then sweeps across and produces more rain and snow up in the sierra
5:42 am
nevada. but then it will wash out. no real high pressure system building in. another system to the north keep the beat going on for continuation of this cool pat earp. so sunny, breezy patchy fog. maybe a few increasing clouds later. but just slightly warmer. i mean just really slight. 60s and low to mid-70s. but a lot of these temperatures should be in the low 80s not even close. five day does have some sun today but then clouds and rain moves in tomorrow. thursday cool and windy. friday looks okay although i was just throwing in the towel because the fog forms so fast on a very cold system looks like it moves in for sunday. well, volcanic ash from iceland is causing the cancellation of hundreds of flights in europe. how president obama's european trip was effected by the ash. also lawyers now involved what they're saying about the case involving the bakersfield woman, arnold schwarzenegger and their baby. good morning. traffic on 680 is moving well heading to the south bay.

time of year. upper 40s and you combine that with a westerly breeze about 15 to 20 miles per hour. and that makes it feel even colder. today high pressure's our fair weather friend. but it's only going to last for a day because this system that i'm standing right in front of look at that there's pretty good enhancement on the back of that. why? a lot of cold air has upper level support and a strong jet stream. i would lean on rain for tomorrow morning especially north bay and then maybe points south. patchy fog today staying cool though. sunny, breezy, not as windy unless you're right along the coast or also in some of the higher elevations and then cloudy, cooler, rain again though makes it tomorrow and so we're not going to warm up here any time soon. sunny, wind is not, again, maybe some of the higher elevations 25, 30 not the 50 we saw yesterday mile per hour. 60s low 70s. brentwood only 74. livermore only 70. 67 redwood city, mountain view.
