good morning. welcome to "mornings on 2." these are live pictures of a recycling plant. there's been a major new development in the site within the last hour. we'll have more on that coming up in a live report. welcome, once again, to "mornings on 2" on this veterans day. i'm tori campbell. >> i'm dave clark. we're gonna check weather and traffic. steve, how are we looking? >> foggy. some higher clouds up to lake county. low clouds will be with us at noon. high clouds, turning mostly cloudy. the big news are definitely the low clouds and the fog. a lot of tropical clouds on their way but they are taking more of an aim towards seattle and portland, maybe you can smell some of that smoke from the scrap yard fire. had reports in fremont, oakland, palo alto, menlo park, seems to be decreasing.
napa, 39. there's a lot of 40s here. even 55 oakland. 54 san francisco. mostly cloudy here in the morning. kind of a mild start. due east wind. almost everybody has a due east wind and kind of a mild pattern in the hills. i've seen 56 to a 9. high pressure is still over us. some of these higher clouds will drift through. overall, morning fog, then high clouds. kind of a mix of sunday and clouds. and then turning cloudy. combination will give us a mixed pattern. here's sal. we've had problems this early commute. we've had a crash in san francisco. we've had a crash in solano county. but we've had also good traffic. look at the bay bridge. this is not typical monday. today, veterans day. some government workers have the day off. that will make it easier for you if you have to drive somewhere. looking at san francisco, they finally cleared all the lanes
westbound. traffic is still a little bit busy but it's recovering. it's much better than it was. if you are driving in the east bay, traffic is moving along pretty well on 880, on 580. we had an earlier crash near travis in solano county. that's been cleared. but traffic is slow from vacaville to fairfield. at 7:02. back to the desk. happening now -- firefighters in redwood city have just lifted a shelter-in- place warning that has been in effect in three counties due to a fire at a metal recycling plant. the fire started yesterday afternoon on seaport road near the port of redwood city. katie utehs spoke to investigators and has more on the effort to put out the fire. good morning, katie. >> reporter: good morning. the fare was to the right. but -- fire was to the right. there's not much to see. the smoke is not really billowing all that much. but i can show you the smoke that lingers in the area.
a heavy haze still lingers over redwood city and surrounding communities. firefighters lifted the shelter- in-place warning about a half- hour ago. let me show you the video from overnight, the large, black plume of smoke billowed from the scrap file at simms metal management. you can imagine the smell. the fire may have started from a conveyer system. the scrap yard is equipped with a sprinkler system but it wasn't enough to stop the fire deep in a scrap file. it was estimated to be 300 feet wide by 30 feet high. crews used cranes to dig through the fire overnight. >> they are down to 20% of the piles left. it was a very large pile at the time. we worked very hard with sims metal. they are a good partner with us. and we try to keep the piles down to a smaller manageable
size. this happened to be an unfortunate time for us to catch fire. >> reporter: again, the shelter- in-place warning was lifted around 6:30. so redwood city residents and others are open their windows. i did just get off the phone with the representative from bay area air control, air quality, rather. she tells me they are sending an inspector out this morning to look over the facility. the early readings show high levels of particle. the small particles can aggravate people's breathing. they are showing elevated levels of particles in the air overnight. she said it's too early to stay whether or not there will be fines related to this fire. live in redwood city, katie utehs, ktvu channel 2 news. >> all right, katie. a real close call for people in one san rafael neighborhood. a driver lost control and a car crashed into a tree outside of a house.
this happened about 2:00in' blackstone relative -- 2:00 this morning on blackstone drive. the driver tried to run away but was detained for questioning. the house suffered minor damage. there is a new study out confirming what you and a lot of other drivers confirm what you know. the bay area has some of the worst traffic in america. alex savidge explains why commutes are getting longer especially in the south bay. >> reporter: yes, especially back here. analysts behind a new traffic survey say in large part you can blame job joth in silicon valley for a lot of those extra cars on the road. we're here along 101 through mountain view. if you know this area, you know this is a traffic trouble spot where things tend to back up on most days. drivers here in the south bay are spending a whole lot more time tapping the brakes lately. commute times have jumped significantly in the past couple of years. according to a study that
monitors traffic, san jose is the fifth most congested city in the country. it's quickly moved up the ranks. in 2010, san jose was the 13th most congested city. and if the economy recovers, more people are driving to work. one south bay driver told me he's certainty noticed the difference. >> i am dreading next year when the 49ers come here. we're gonna have sunday traffic. and i try to avoid i-80 at all costs. that's the worst freeway i think in all of the spay. >> reporter: these are the worst cities across the country -- honolulu followed by l.a. and then the san francisco/oakland area has the third worse congestion and then seattle and then san jose. the analysts behind this survey say this sudden increase of traffic in the south bay is almost unheard of. what they've seen over the past
years. for california drivers, here's another stat, drivers nationwide, they spend an average of 38 hours a year stuck in traffic while here in california, we waste an average of 62 hours tapping the brakes every year. live this morning in mountain view, alex savidge, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you, alex. 7:07. continuing coverage now of typhoon haiyan. earlier this morning, the deadly storm hit vietnam. there are reports at least six people have been killed there. winds up to 70 miles an hour were reported before it weakened into a tropical storm and began moving toward china. the vietnamese government says more than 800,000 people were evacuated from the areas the storm was expected to hit. and typhoon haiyan hit the philippines over the weekend and just devastated that country. now the u.s. military is in the philippines and president obama is promising more aid if necessary. u.s. marines in manila are

determine. it's a large amount of scrap metal that's been brought us. for us to determine the cause, it's usually very difficult. >> reporter: just how quickly the smoke will clear the area really depends on the weather. the initial smoke plume traveled south-southwest. people have tweeted me to say they smoked smoke in almeda and south san francisco. now, air quality investigators say it is too early to determine whether or not the scrap yard will be facing fines. live in redwood city, katie utehs, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you. happening right now, president obama taking part in a wreath laying ceremony at the arlington national ceremony for veterans day.
