time it went down. this crash happened during the thund over solano airshow and left the pilot -- thunder over solano airshow and left the pilot dead and stunned spectators. the ntsb said witnesses have turned over more than 100 videos of yesterday's accident and those will play a key role in figuring out what went wrong. >> that's always helpful because you have different angles and viewpoints. we have quite a few. i believe we have the accident sequence. i don't believe we're requesting any more at this time. but that's always very helpful. >> reporter: the pilot from yesterday's crash was 77-year- old eddie andreini, a veteran stunt pilot from half moon bay. his friends say he had been flying for most of his life and performing in airshows all across the country. yesterday, he was performing one particular maneuver in which his plane flies upside down and low to the ground and the knife attached to the tail is supposed to slice through a
ribbon that sits about 20 feet before the runway. friends said he was a highly skilled pilot as well as a loving husband, father and frand grandfather. >> he generally cared about people. that's what i really loved about eddie. >> reporter: and today some are raising questions about how long it took first responders to get to that plane following yesterday's accident. witnesses say it took about five minutes before fire truck reached the plane and in that time the fire had spread quickly and federal investigators did say today they don't know what the exact response time was yesterday for those emergency personnel but they say that will certainly be a part of their investigation moving forward. again, later on today, they will begin examining the wreckage of the plane. at some point, they will begin removing the wreckage of that plane from the runway at travis air force base. we're live at travis air force

students who wore a shirt with the american flag on it in cinco de mayo 2010. he said his parents were sold by the school district to turn the shirt inside out. the ninth circuit court sided with the school. they showed you up with this cross displaying both flags. >> we want to show people we're unified. we believe in this town and city. enough of this us verses us stuff. >> reporter: students want to move past what happened. but outside groups who feel strongly still feel like demonstrating this afternoon. >> we're not expecting any kind of violence or danger from any of the groups but what we're gonna do is put plans in place to make sure that there isn't any problem at all with safety. >> happy cinco de mayo to

two strong earthquakes shook both thailand and japan early this morning. the quake in japan lit the ocean southwest of tokyo. the quake in thailand several hours later centered in the northern part of the country. but was felt as far awas abank -- as far away as bangkok. here are some photos. as you can see, roads, buildings and buddhist temples
are damaged. information is coming in still. but no reports of injuries. in japan, video captured the moments during the 6.0 quake that rattled windows and security cameras. 17 people were hurt. this quake is the strongest to hit the area since the 9.0 and tsunami back in 2011. billions of dollars in improper medicare payments that government says is fraud, waste and abuse. justin gray just spoke with an investigator who looked into this and joins us live. justin? >> reporter: yeah, tori. the number itself really is staggering $50 billion just last year in improper medicare payments. that day cau coming directly from the -- day data coming directly from the health and human resources. audi teres have called medicare a high-risk program because of the size an complexity. the director for healthcare
says some of that billion 50 billion is fraud. some of it is waste. but it's a number she says needs to be lower. one area they say needs to be fixed. medicare i.d. cards that everyone must carry. those i.d. cards have a social security number on them. >> they typically carry the card around with them. if the card is lost and stolen other people could use it to commit identity theft against them. >> reporter: the gao says it's very hard to identify exactly how many fraud there is in medicare. but they say that $50 billion number is too high and it's the number that can and should be fixed. live in washington, justin gray, ktvu channel 2 news. >> all right. thank you, justin. new details about controversy los angeles clippers' owner donald sterling who is banned for life from the nba because of racist comments he made. now tmz is reporting that

less of your product. so obviously revenue goes down. >> the board will consider a tiered rate structure based on how many units of water each household uses. fire season is now officially underway in the bay area. today marks calfire's first day of the season. since late january, they've been hiring and training seasonal firefighters. they are expecting a very busy fire season due to the dry conditions this year. another phase of training is set to begin later this week. calfire doesn't like wind but that's what we have. thankfully, it's cool and out of the west-northwest and not the east. had a lot of clouds this morning. higher clouds cleared out. had some fog. and then mostly sunny skies. but clouds are building. building up to the north. a few showers up in mendocino county, looks like northern lake county. north bay which had mostly sunny skies this morning is turning mostly cloudy. would not be surprised if if a
popup shower shows up. over in northernlake county, i don't think much is happening yet. but keep an eye if you are up at lakeport or cobb. it's cool for this time of year. what a difference a week makes. 50s and 60s. san jose is only 63 degrees. these are well below average temperatures. should be around 64 to 74. we won't come close to that. out of the west 17 at oakland. concord, 13. that's the direction the wind is coming from. out of the west. fairfield, 16. novato 12. almost everybody is in on this. 14 sfo, hayward, 5. northwest at mountain view -- excuse me. north at mountain view, i expect the breeze to pick up later. why? because there is an area of low pressure. you can see the activity firing up. the low is on its way to northern came and will go over the sierra nevada tomorrow
morning, make a stop in las vegas. hang out there and eject out but that's not until wednesday. the national weather service in las vegas talking about very windy conditions probably even on the desert of southern california for tuesday into wednesday. the higher clouds are gone but here comes the low right there. that's the key. it's kind of dry for us. it is firing up some clouds. areas that are sunny to mostly sunny. might go mostly cloudy. sun and crowds. breezy to windy to cool. would not be surprised to see 35 to 40 overnight. the wind picks up. showers to the north. north bay maybe but then over the sierra overnight into tomorrow. a cooler and breezy forecast. sun and clouds. but the sun is beginning to lose out a little bit here. showers to the north and temperatures as you might imagine they are way down. for clearlake to be 67. that's below. only vacaville. kentfield, 67. san rafael. 65. very low 70s out towards pittsburg, antioch, oakley, brentwood. maybe pleasanton as well but 60s everywhere else including
walnut creek, san rafael danville. san jose, 68. they are only 63 right now. 60s or 50s on the coast and then 60s on the peninsula. so tomorrow looks like a very windy and cool day as showers pop up in the sierra. one more day of breeze conditions. and then we start to clear it out. it will be chilly in the morning. no sign of heat. >> we had the one tease last week. >> did we ever. only a few days. >> yeah? an alarming government report which will be released this week says extreme weather events may become more common. the national climate assessment concluded that global climate change is really and already happening and human activity is causing the increase in temperatures. they say if changes are not made, the temperature could rise by 10 degrees and california's drought conditions would worsen. bill martin will be in
washington for the release of the report. bill will be the only bay area meteorologist to interview president obama about the findings as well as our current drought and wildfire concerns. bill's one on one interview with president obama airs wednesday night on the news at 5:00 and 6:00 as well as on the 10:00 news. tickets for the final concert at candlestick park with paul mccartney just went on sale. we'll tell you how many are still available. it's something you don't see every day. what chp officers in the east bay were doing with these goats on a major freeway over the weekend. and special nterests run rampant. as an economics teacher at stanford, i know education means good jobs. so here's my plan: i'd start teaching computer coding in public schools right away. open doors for women in science and technology. and prepare young people for middle class manufacturing jobs. i'm ro khanna and i approve this message,

in the past, goats have been used for wildfire prevention. no word at this point where these goats came from. tickets went on sale two hours ago and sold out quickly to see paul mccartney play the final concert at candle still park. we just checked with ticketmaster and they say there are no tickets left. but you might be able to find some tickets at some secondary ticket retailers like stubhub. the concert is thursday, august 14th. as you probably know, he and the beatles played their final concert in 1966 at candle still park. if you believe the experts, bay area teams are top. right now, mlb.com has the san francisco giants as number one and the as a close second. even though we're only a month in, some people are thinking about a possible bay bridge series in october. tonight, it is a rare all access look at life in law enforcement. >> this is really hard.
