7:02 am
temperatures are hard-pressed to warm up that much. a lot of activity even down to southern california, even to las vegas. looking for 77 high today. some off-and-on rain. a lot of clouds. low and high. breezy at times. maybe a little drizzle. nothing compared to what we had yesterday. could be hit-and-miss shower today. i will mention that for inland areas. 60s and 70s. sal, kind of quiet in the weather department. yeah, we have commutes we're keeping an eye on. we'll start off with the eastshore freeway and 80 westbound as you head out between the carquinez bridge and the macarthur maze. a 19-minute run. it's lightert than usual at the bay bridge toll plaza. there's a little bit of a slowdown here in some of these lanes but for the most part, it has been much lighter getting into san francisco. we've also been looking at some of the other commutes around the bay. look at the eastshore freeways. a lot of road acceptsors are firing up green. the traffic on 680, on 24, even
7:03 am
580 in livermore. still looks good. there is a problem here with some slow traffic on southbound 880. you've seen the earlier crash. it's still slow there. it's not as bad as it normally is. back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. the ground continues to shake in the wine country. the u.s. geological survey reports a couple of quakes in napa county over the past 12 hours. the largest was a magnitude 4.1. it was centered 6 miles east- northeast of yountville right along the silverado trail. tara moriarty is in napa this morning, where even minor cakes are rattling nerves. gosh dash quakes are -- quakes are rattling nerves. >> reporter: everyone says this reminded them of last summer's earthquake. others say it wasn't that big of a deal. we spoke to a couple of people.
7:04 am
some people say this quake l.a.d about 20 seconds, light to moderate shaking. there were no reports of injuries or serious damage. many people were out in restaurants dining or watching the warriors' game. >> i did -- i did feel the quake. i was watching the warriors' game and i felt like something barreled in my apartment and i looked at my kitchen and there is a glass of water and the level of the water is moving. i definitely felt it. it was jarring. i was hoping it would end soon and not last too long. >> reporter: luckily, it didn't. people wrote on the usgs website that they felt this quake throughout the north bey and santa rosa, petaluma. in san francisco, all the way down the peninsula as well as parts of the east bay and all the way to the sacramento valley. back to you. >> thank you, tara. 7:04. the south bay is trying to help
7:05 am
nepal recover from two massive earthquakes. a magnitude 7.8 quake in april followed by a 7.3 this month killed more than 8300 people and damaged 800,000 homes. south bay leaders and community activists will hold a fund- raiser at 5:00 tonight at 7 trees community center in san jose. all proceeds go to the red cross to aid quake victims. it's estimated that 3.5 million people in nepal need food and other supplies. 7:05. well, the operator of that ruptured oil pipeline in santa barbara county, the one that caused the huge oil spill says it may take months to figure out why that pipe broke. the crews are out there removing the buildup of crude oil on beaches and coastal waters. there are now reports wildlife found covered in oil, six pelicans and a young sea lion were among those rescued yesterday. they will have to be cleaned by people who have special
7:06 am
training for it. >> general public may want to help but the fact is that trying to capture oiled animals by people what don't have the training is dangerous both to the animal and the people. >> reporter: the boats, they've skimmed 9500 gallons of oily water from the ocean so far. two beaches that would normally be backed for the weekend will stay closed this weekend because of the oil spill. the investigation will take time. the crews have to dig up the broken pipe and then inspect the leak. a woman was hit and killed as she was sitting in traffic at piedmont and rockport avenue. three people were in a car sitting in traffic when another car hit them from behind. the 40-year-old woman was taken to the hospital and later died. another person in the car suffered severe injuries. police don't think alcohol or drugs were factors in the
7:07 am
crash. bay area home prices just keep going up. in fact, records were set in several counties for the month of april. ktvu fox 2's janine de la vega joins us live from san jose where you just spoke with a local realtor about the red hot market. good morning, janine. >> reporter: good morning, tori. yes. he told me that as of today, there is only 1,030 single homes for sale in all of santa clara county. i'm standing here in the cambrian park neighborhood. this is a desirable place to live. a lot of good schools. he said there's just 39 homes for sale here. the low inventory is driving up the prices. the real estate information service called core logic reported prices for single family homes jumped from a year ago in all nine bay area counties. it's a very good market to sell because prices keep going up. but for buyers it's becoming more of a challenge because there's not enough homes for sale on the market.
7:08 am
so there are bidding wars where people are offering between 20,000 to more than 100,000 over asking price. let's go to the latest numbers. in san mateo county, the median price of a home reached an all- time high. almost 1.2 million. a record was set in santa clara county for april. the price tag is 90 -- 905,000. in alameda, 695,000. in contra costa county the price went up to 490,000. here's what a local south bay realtor told us about the market now. >> it's consistent from what we saw last year. it's just that now the new high is coming on. so that last home that sold for 950, the next which is is listed at 950 and you are having three, four, five, sometimes ten offers and that's driving the price into over a million. the next home is just the next
7:09 am
high. it's making things difficult for the home buyer. the sellers are loving it. >> reporter: reamers are saying they are see -- realers are saying they are seal -- realtors are saying they are seeing the buyers get outbid. that's why they are making huge offers on the homes. coming up in the next hour of "mornings on 2," you will hear from this realtor on what he predicts will happen this summer. >> it will be interesting. i know it's good news for sellers. frustrating for buyers out there right now. >> reporter: absolutely. >> thank you. >> yes. 7:09. disneyland is pulling out of the -- all of the stops. >> ktvu fox 2's pam cook is right there getting a sneak peek at some of the changes. pam, you've got the best view in town, the best job of the day, pam. >> reporter: yes. i think so. i'm not phone argue with you.
7:10 am
>> you do. >> reporter: i have the best view. i was not able to sneak away with the glass slipper but look what i found. they are giving these away and guess what else i found. more bay area fans. [ cheers ] >> way to go. >> reporter: we have fremont and castro valley and brentwood. they are all out here. we're having a super fun time. it's -- like you said, they pulled out all of the stops. i got a sneak peek. they will get to see the new parade and fireworks show tonight. but the paint the night if you remember the electrical parade, it's represent min nistent -- reminiscent of that. when you think of disneyland, you think of mickey mouse, right? mickey, you are so sparkling. you are gonna be here the whole 24-hour celebration? you will need a nap.
7:11 am
yes. [laughter] >> reporter: he's -- i saw minnie. minnie looks lovely if i do say so. the castle is fabulous. a lot of sparkle. a lot of bling for the diamond celebration. when we come back, we'll see you in a little bit and sell you about some of the amazing prizes that you can win during this diamond celebration. >> pam, can you win the tiara that you are wearing? >> reporter: i bought this yesterday. a couple of people have tried to take this right off my head. i love it. i got one for each of my daughters. they are already mad at me that they are not here with me. that hopefully will make up for that. >> i'm loving the big hand. >> reporter: we're having fun. >> i love the big hand. >> i love it. >> we'll check in with you soon. >> talk to you later. 7:1. it won't be easy -- 7:11. it won't be easy traveling around some part of the bay area. san mateo bridge is closing.
7:12 am
that's not the only challenge. in to minutes what you need to know -- in 20 minutes what you need to know. the game is over! >> were you watching? were you screaming? tori, a tough nail-biting win for the warriors. now the warriors are up 2-0. i'm sorry, james harden. we'll tell you what's being credited for sealing the win. we're looking at the east bay commute and getting out from the east bay to the peninsula, via the san mateo bridge, that looks good. but this weekend you won't be able to use the bridge. we'll have details of the closured a give you alternate routes? a little bit of sun. low clouds moving west, east. high clouds coming off the sierra giving us a mostly cloudy friday. what about the weekend?
7:13 am
7:14 am
7:15 am
back to iguodala! >> warriors now have a 2-0 lead in the western conference finals. it was a nail-biting win over the houston rockets. warriors had led by as many as 17 in the first half but the rockets came back a couple of times. the score went back and forth but the warriors are able to take control in the third, then it came down to a defensive spot in the final seconds for the 99-98 win. >> at that point, it's don't let them get a shot and try to be the hero. we were able to get it done. the key for us going into the next game, protect the leads down the stretch of the fourth quarter. >> it's frustrating to give the game away like that. but the coaches and team were behind me.
7:16 am
saying we're going to secure home now. >> he played great. >> he got 30 points. andrew bogut had 14 points and eight rebounds. game 3 tomorrow night at the toyota center in houston. it starts at 6:00 p.m. our time. game 4 in houston at 6:00 on monday. in about an hour, i will join sal to talk more about the game and why it was so close. >> a lot of people still talking about that. we're also talking with sal castanedo, we have a crash in newark. what happened it's a hit-and-run crash, dave and tori, where a couple of cars driving in the same direction on cedar boulevard in newark, one car clipped the other and it flip over. the driver from the first car got off and ran away. people are okay. they are looking for the driver. the area of cedar boulevard is shut down. you can see the live pictures. a lot of evidence markers.
7:17 am
brian flores is on the scene. he's getting more information for us but this looks like a very violent catholic and we'll let you know about who they are looking for and what's happening now. again, these are live pictures. doesn't look like this will be cleared any time soon. westbound, a little delay but it's lighter than usual. looking at a commute where traffic on the nimitz freeway in front of or raw tell, that traffic looks good. i've been searching the east bay for slow traffic kind of moving the maps around looking for any signs of red and there isn't really a lot. i mean, it's great. a little bit of red on northbound 101 in san jose between 280 and the 880 interchange. but for the most part, this is a great friday right before memorial day traffic-wise. let's go to steve. thank you. a combination of clouds here. higher clouds coming off the sierra. this gives us a pretty picture
7:18 am
for a friday morning under mostly cloudy skies. a couple of sunbreaks. the higher clouds might lead to a few isolated afternoon showers. jerry albright says calm and 53 degrees. east of willits in mendocino county. we love these mellow days before the summer heat settleles in dash settles in. i would agree with that. summer heat. low clouds here. watch the higher cloud drift off the sierra. that's zooming right back. the col binnation giving us a cloudy to mostly cloudy morning here. the shower and rain activity has been impressive. bridgeport had .75 the last 24 hours. even las vegas, getting down there in las vegas, getting some shower activity. another low rotates in. this one will be different from sunday, a low will be troping down in the sierra nevada. it comes over land. it will be drier. thundershower activity today and tomorrow over the high country. 50s 0 be the temps -- 50s on
7:19 am
the temps. water temps come up. we saw this last year. they started to warm up in june and stayed mild for a long time. west 17. 54, 56, 57. that's what -- seven, ten days ago, it was 41, 49, 52. if they continue to go up, that means the lows will be mild on the coast. and even the high temps are near average to slightly below, not way below like they are inland areas. a lot of cloud cover over the sierra. it looks like it calm down. same for sierra, lassen. lake county, a few showers. there are a lot of clouds out there. 60s and 70s. temperatures near average on the coast and in san francisco now. yet there is they are still far below average as you move inland. 15, 20 for some as you get toward the desert. fog will burn off sooner. sunday looks warmer and then kind of quiet next week.

7:35 am
the bay bridge toll plaza is light. let's go to the south bay here. northbound 101 as you approach the 280 interchange. this traffic looks good. a little bit of slow traffic on northbound 280 at 17. that only lasts for just a little bit and then it is looking good again into superintendent. 7:35. back back to the desk. >> thank you. if you will be in the bay area this memorial day weekend and you plan to either use the san mateo bridge or ride on b.a.r.t. there's some things you need to know. alex savidge joining us live. you are at the san mateo bridge now tell us about the plans to shut down the bridge. >> if you are planning to stay here in town for the long

7:37 am
to a dublin daly city train in the east bay. so b.a.r.t. riders, they will see delays and dave, unfortunately, the freeways will not be much better with the san mateo bridge shut down. >> a lot of good information. thank you for the update. we'll talk to you later. one of the largest online dating websites has contacted law enforcement about a data breach. says information for as many as 4 million members may have been stolen. the site has 64 million members. the information includes sexual preference, marital status, birthdays and addresses. the site is part of friend finder networks, headquartered in sunnyvale. police in washington, d.c. have made an arrest in a brutal murder and arson case that led investigators on a manhunt. police identified the suspect as 34-year-old daron dylon wint, a former marine and an ex-
