7:00 am
good morning. a homicide investigation is under way along a popular marin county hiking trail just west of fairfax after a person was found shot to death here last night. we'll tell you how this victim was discovered and the evidence investigators have to go on. >> more allegations of inmates being beaten. this time at the sonoma county jail. the claims of brutality by almost two dozen inmates now at the center of federal lawsuits. >> plus a driver pulled to safety in south carolina but some others were not so lucky. the growing death toll from that historic flooding in south carolina and why the worst is still not over. all ahead on mornings on 2.
7:01 am
how is the does the weather look steve? >> about the same as yesterday. >> about the same as yesterday. >> great. >> over all mostly clear. fog again. seems to be near sima run and sonoma. that allows the over night lows to be a little bit warmer here especially near the coast and san francisco at 61 we will go to 73. same for oakland. 61 on that water temp. yesterday was 59. the low was 59. this morning at 61. low clouds and fog will give way to sunshine. our low is finally moving. more rain for arizona. much of the four corners out of california, southern california. 52 napa yet we have 60s.
7:02 am
livermore is in there. half-moon bay 62. there is not much of a breeze. still holding at 10. there will be an on shore component. a lot of high clouds to the north. it looks like high pressure to me. subny and nice, mild to warm. temperatures near average for inland areas. a little bit above around the bay. all right 7:02. usual slow traffic. has anything developed? it's getting slower steve. for the most part it's a bunch of slow traffic. we will start off with a look at the east bay commute and the traffic will be busy at the bay bridge toll plaza as it normally is for about a 15-20 minute delay. nothing that is going to shock you or anything but it's certainly not going to be easy getting through that commute. also looking at the commute on interstate 92 excuse me on highway 92 near interstate 880. so 92 away from 880 is going to be slow and interstate 880 nearby i have a map of the area
7:03 am
for you is slow because of an earlier accident at tennison. dumbarton bridge and san mateo bridge delays are just moderate. 7:02 let's go back to the desk. now to new development this is a suspicious death on a hiking trail in marin county. we have just confirmed the person who's body was found last night was shot. ktvu fox 2 alex savidge is live with more on this new development. alex. >> reporter: gasia, good morning to you. a startling discovery along this popular hiking trail just west overfar-- just west of fairfax. this was called old railroad grade fire road. this is right off of sir francis drake boulevard. as you can see this morning the trail is shut down as deputies continue to search for evidence here and they are waiting for the sun to come up so they can really comb through this area and look for any clues. a hiker came across this victim
7:04 am
at 6:00 last night. a sheriffs lieutenant won't tell us if the victim was a man or a woman but investigators do confirm the person had been shot to death. authorities also say that a dog was found here at this scene. that animal was turned over to the marin humane society. we do not know the dogs condition or if it belonged to the victim. be deputies say they talked to a few witnesses last night. they are looking for more people to come forward with any information that might help out investigators. no one has been arrested at this point in connection with this killing and the situation here they have guarded the scene over night and they are waiting for the sun to come up which it is beginning to do and then investigators will comb through this area, search for any clues and try to figure out who shot this person to death along this popular trail. >> certainly part of the concern while it's a popular trail, it is not a scene of
7:05 am
violence. it is very peaceful, calming area. >> reporter: absolutely not. there were a few hikers. they walked up here and saw this crime scene tape blocking their favorite trail that they hike every morning. they were startled and stunned to say the least. they were in disbelief about what they heard took place here along this trail. this is not something you hear about. very, very unusual here. investigators they blocked this entire area off. the trail will be shut down for most of the day. they are asking anybody who normally comes up in this area to stay away for the time being. to the east bay where oakland police are asking for the publics help. police have released this photo. it is of a man of a person of interest. they describe him as thin, african american with a dark
7:06 am
complex and complexion and probably in his 20s. ramos was painting a mural that was designed by middle school students when he was gunned down. police vin creased patrols in the -- police have increased patrols in the area. students who designed the art work hoped it would bring a message of peace and good will. >> if you keep making rules, we might have a chance to make it back as a thriving community. >> the mural is part of a project called oakland super heros. students will send cards to the artist this week to thank them for finishing the mural. time is 7:06. more allegations of abuse at a bay area jail and this time in sonoma county. ktvu fox 2 reporter allie rasmus is in the newsroom. allie. >> reporter: one of the attorneys for the inmates called it a quote deliberate and systematic beating.
7:07 am
the victims according to the suit 21 different inmates at the sonoma county jail. >> we have 21 letters from 21 different inmates. >> reporter: those inmates accuse guards at the jail of subjecting them to a five hour beating spree back in may. the incident began with guards angry at one of the inmates for arguing with them. the guards are accused of beating, stripping, and humiliating that inmate. when other inmates heard the cries for help and objected, the guards turned their focus on everyone else. the attorneys say the inmates were beaten and tortured one by one and he does not believe this is an isolated incident. >> we do know there is a climate of violence and a climate of abuses and authority within that facility that is condoned if not ratified by the jail staff. and that goes all the way up to
7:08 am
sheriff roe vas. >> reporter: they did send out a statement saying deputies were responding to a coordinated mass. now the sheriffs office goes on to say there is quote absolutely no basis to allegations of torture or sadistic actions. the attorney for the inmate says there is video that exists of these alleged beatings and that video will support their legal claim but so far jail officials have not turned that video over to them. dave. >> allie rasmus, hank. and now to the latest on the devastating floridaing in south carolina. we have drone video here that shows some of the damage left behind in downtown charleston and surrounding areas. at least 12 people have died in two states including a number of people who were trapped in their cars by rising waters. more flooding is expected in south carolina as the rain swollen rivers rise. >> yeah he just made a mistake.
7:09 am
there he goes. >> this video shows you how quickly the driver gets in trouble. you can see the truck drifted away out of control before hitting a tree. the good news here is this. a good sal mare tan and res -- samaritan and rescue crews broke the window to get the driver to safety. one of hundreds of rescues happening during the height of the flooding. governor jerry brown signed a bill to require law enforcement agencies to publicly report the race, ethnicity, age, and gender of any person stopped by police officers. now yesterday members of the youth justice coalition gathered at the state capitol to thank the governor for signing the racial and identity profiling act. civil rights activists call it a big step toward protecting minorities from racial
7:10 am
profiling. however many law enforcement organizations are against the bill. they say it's reporting requirements will be a burden top police officers and very expensive to taxpayers. some of the bigger police departments they will start reporting that information in 2019. the smaller departments they will begin in 2023. the publishing company mcgraw hill says it will make changes to a geography textbook that referred to slaves from africa as workers who immigrated to the united states. a freshman in the houston, texas area was assigned the textbook and it refers to the slave trade bringing quote millions of workers from africa to the southern united states to work on agricultural plantations. the student showed that paragraph to his mother who happened to be a professor. she is outraged about how the textbook down plays the brutal realities of slavery.
7:11 am
>> they worked for their lives, literally. boy did they work. the fact they mention the slave trade in the complex of patterns in the book that is also problematic because immigration is a choice. >> a video she posted on facebook attracted national attention. mcgraw hill the publishing company says it agrees. the caption did not convey that africans were taken to the u.s. to work against their will and the company will change that text in future editions. so many of us think we are doing the right thing to bring a coffee mug to work, well it turns out we might not be doing the right thing because it turns out no more plates and silverware. the real thing is not allowed in fort bragg. a bay area college student
7:12 am
arrested. >> the morning commute doesn't look bad as if few yo driving in trans. 101 traffic is not all that bad but southbound 101 a little slow. >> expect for a little bit of low clouds or fog. it looks like another nice day but what about the rest of the week? cooling down or warming up?
7:13 am
7:14 am
welcome back to mornings on 2. happening right now the top u.s. commander in afghanistan is facing some tough questions in washington about american troops. we are there live in washington. general john campbell is testifying. originally this hearing was expected. there is the general right
7:15 am

7:17 am
that includes not using water on lawns, taking long showers or washing cars. and a lot of us in our newsroom we were confused because we thought we were doing the right thing by bringing in our own bowls and class ware. reusing them and washing them. because i think with this, this goes in the garbage or the compost if you are really good. this usually just goes in the trash because it looks like it's a water over garbage fight which one is better? >> i don't know. >> sal do you do the reusable mug guy? >> i just think that it's better for a variety of reasons. plus i don't like the paper cups as i like the sir-- sir ceramic. the traffic is substantial. you will see a lot of slowing. let's go to highway 101 in san francisco.
7:18 am
we had a noninjury crash near caesar chavez. that is the good news. the bad news is it was there for a bit and traffic will be slow leaving san francisco on southbound 101. you might want to think about using 280 instead. be southbound 101 caesar chavez noninjury crash or if there were injuries very minor injuries. i just spilled my cup. there was nothing in it. there is our friend boris the spider. westbound bay bridge that is backed up out to the maccarthur maze. it's a 25 minute delay. i also want to mention the nimitz freeway southbound 880 as you drive past 238 it will be slow all the way down to fremont but it's getting a little better. we had a couple accidents that have been cleared and that made a little bit of an improvement. let's go to steve in today's weather. >> did i see two spider there is or just one? >> mow they are -- now they are
7:19 am

7:21 am

7:30 am
welcome back to mornings on 2. we are live in san francisco at 7:30 this morning. you may have been seeing these red lanes around town. they are designated for muni buses but if you're in a car and blocking those lanes you may get caught by a camera and face a big fine. in a few minutes we will bring in brian flores and help us explain this new law. it's a good morning for all of us that drive in the city. it's tuesday, october 6th i'm gasia mikaelian. >> good morning, i'm dave clark. we are going to check your weather and traffic.
7:31 am
i just ran out and checked the weather for steve. steve has me on the clock. i have to check the weather. >> how are we doing? >> it's a mixture of little gray clouds but the sun will come up. >> it will be be a nice day. >> we have a little bit of fog there. thank you, sir. gasia also we do have temperatures that look to be running a little warmer around the bay. inland temps are around where they should be. kind of a push on the temps. i don't think they will change too much until tomorrow then we will warm up a little bit. low clouds. 50s and 60s. most locations are running a little warmer expect for sfo compared to 24 hours ago. anywhere from 1-7. fairfield 7 degrees warmer than yesterday. power house little low move into the four corners. extensive high clouds but they are moving up toward portland and seattle, not here. sunny and nice. cool to mild to warm. upper 70s and low 80s and lots
7:32 am
of 70s by the waters edge. all righty sal 7:31 how are we doing? we are okay. we did have that problem on highway 101. we had a couple different crashes. they were noninjury crashes but the crash itself has left 101 a little bit slow and chp has done a good job getting them out of the way. support vehicles have been moved over to san bruno avenue but it did its damage. southbound 101 traffic will be slower than you would like. so you might want to use 280 instead to get out of the city or give yourself an extra 5-10 minutes what would normally take you 158 minutes to leave the city it might take you 20- 25. let's go to the bay bridge toll plaza. that is backed up for a 25-30 minute delay. i want to mention the traffic is going to be slow this morning on 880. right at 238 which is not unusual. all the way down into fremont, dumbarton bridge is slow and so is the san mateo bridge but
7:33 am
those are all normal slow downs. as we take a look at 580 in livermore the main traffic will be slow. it gets better in dublin. 680 slows from pleasanton down to the sunol grade. let's go back to the desk. the four women who use social media to arrange dates in the east bay they ended up as crime victims. janine de la vega is joining us live. you're at fremont police headquarters. investigators you say are looking for other victims janine. >> reporter: they are, dave. fremont police say the suspect would meet his dates on social media. and then when he would meet them he would drug them and lose unconsciousness and then the sexual assault would take place. so far police have identified four women as victims but they think there are more out there. here is is a picture of 20-year- old kwangmin jin who is from san ramon. they say he used the aliases
7:34 am
kevin park, kevin jin, kevin lee and jeremy lee on social medial sites. sometime between may and august investigators say jin contacted women through tinder, scout, and facebook. used basically social media websites to connect with women and then when he met them in the cases that we're investigating he used an alcoholic beverage and put a sedative in there. the women may not have a clear recollection of what occurred. >> reporter: police say two of the sexual assaults occurred in fremont. the others happened elsewhere but do have a fremont connection. detectives say they have evidence that suggests there are more victims in the bay area as you heard it is possible those women methought remember everything that happened. so that is why police would like to speak with anyone who may have had contact with jin or one of his aliases through social media to help them with
7:35 am
their investigation. dave. >> janine de la vega in fremont, thank you. time is 7:34. new details about the body of a canadian woman found over the weekend during the hardly strictly bluegrass festival. the san francisco examiner says the victim was 23-year-old audrey kerry. her body was found by a passer by near jfk drive. right near the golf course. she had serious head injuries. they are call her death a -- they are calling her death a homicide. miss kerry was backpacking across the west coast. she was in san francisco for the final week of her trip. so far police have no suspects. meantime in oakland police are still searching for the person who shot and killed a popular ice cream vendor in broad daylight. 45-year-old sing was shot saturday afternoon on peach street near 94th avenue. it happened about 4:30. police have not identified suspects yet. the bay area news group says it
7:36 am
was the 74th homicide in oakland this year. that is 15 more than at the same time last year. a warning for drivers in san francisco. if you block a muni bus, you could be caught on camera and ticketed. ktvu fox 2 brian flores is in san francisco where governor brown's signature has made a pilot program a permanent addition to muni. >> reporter: this had been a pilot program since 2008 and only enforce when drivers would stop and block these dedicated red lanes. see a muni bus coming from behind me. the new laws signed by governor brown on sunday would also ticket drivers for blocking crosswalks or intersections. all muni buses are equipped with front facing video cameras. what these cameras would do is is snap pictures of the license plate of drivers that would block the dedicated lanes for muni buses or taxis. this allows for enforcement of drivers illegally stopped or
7:37 am
blocking crosswalks. once you are caught on camera or video, a ticket is sent to you by mail. now the reason for this according to the bills author is to essentially make muni more efficient and safer. since the problem started they say there is a reduction in transit delays. many times before this law was passed hewn know drivers would have -- muni drivers would have to unsafely maneuver among cars that were parked. the ticket is going to cost you $110. >> have you had a chance to ask any drivers or muni riders about this? >> reporter: not yet. >> it looks like we lost brian's signal. >> we'll catch up with him in a little bit. time is 7:37. dispatchers have a difficult and challenging problem to deal
7:38 am
with. more people accidentally dial 911. and that makes up a big part of calls in san francisco. the calls are often made when the smart phone is in your pocket or a purse. researchers recently shadowed the dispatchers you see here. found that 30% of wireless calls that were received it was an accident. dispatchers who hear an open line and they don't know whether the call is a mistake or a real call. they've got to follow up to see if it is a legitimate call for help. 7:38 now. learning more about the artist that created those fake street signs. ivan cash put up the no text zone signs throughout the city. he has launched a website selling the signs for $100 each to help with expenses. he tells the guardian newspapers the sign is to start a dialogue about the role of technology and the amount of time people spend on their
7:39 am
phones. cash says he doesn't want to be seen as antitechnology, he just wants people to consider the impact mobile devices have on our lives. for people that use the website reddit -- what the new website up loaded is all about. a scandal is brewing over fantasy sports. >> and we're still looking at a tough morning commute. we've had a couple issues. 280 northbound you can see there is slow traffic and it looks like there is a paramedic vehicle on the freeway heading up to what could be a problem just up the road. >> no problems with the weather it looks pretty nice here. no rain in sight. we'll talk about the temps for this week.
7:40 am
my name is marcus jenkins. i'm a lineman here in oakland. day in, day out, a large part of what we do is about providing

7:42 am
president obama has ordered federal aid for the areas hardest hit by historic flooding in south carolina. at least 11 people have died and the damage is estimated to be at more than $1 billion after a solid week of rainfall. the rain is mostly come to an end for now but reporter joel walden live in charleston and a lot of areas are still very wet. flooded even. >> reporter: that is exactly right. and you are bringing us some good luck because all of a sudden out of nowhere the sun we have not felt it since we have been here. today forecasts are actually for about 75 degrees and sunny skies but it's been over cast and as you eluded to flood waters remain. look at this car. this one is stuck here. dry on the inside but the engine got over run with water.
7:43 am
five more cars over here and although the weather appears to be clearing up, we are far from being out of danger. >> this is completely unexpected. not anything we would have ever felt happen. >> reporter: residents across south carolina are picking up the pieces after flood waters forced them from their homes. some parts of the palm meadow state receiving two feet of rain since last thursday. >> it is nothing to worry about. >> reporter: the flooding has caused serious problems for the states infrastructure with bridges collapsing and hundreds of roads still under water. >> we are looking at 550 roads and bridges that are closed. you are probably going to see some roads closed. >> reporter: crews are also worried about a series of dams that are breaking near columbia. >> it was frantic. it was crazy. you just do what you have to do. >> a very stubborn old lady
7:44 am
would not leave. so we had to pick her up and carry her out. >> reporter: to provide food and supplies to those in need. >> the group that brings in the food to take care of all the people we have nurses on stand by. >> we'll be happy to make them their plate and send it out. >> reporter: back out to a live look here in the city of north charleston. this is a home where the resident had to be evacuated into shelters around the city of northerly charleston and charleston proper. they are saying 40,000 people are still without power and drinking water. we're also getting unconfirmed reports that up to about 100 people are trapped in their homes in the high country outside columbia, south carolina which is where this road i-26 leads to. but as you can see gasia right now the ramp is shut down and it's impassable. >> joel, thank you. time is 7:44.
7:45 am
a scandal is brewing in the world of fantasy sports where people bet on real players but the teams are made up. pam cook is in our studio with a look at what is being compared to insider trading. >> the two big players in the fantasy sports gambling business draft kings and fan dual some of their employees are being called out for not playing fair. draft kings and fan dual have acknowledged some employees have won big jackpots by betting on each others website. one person won a $350,000 website. since employees have draft kick offers real money rather than the traditional fantasy football game where is you
7:46 am
draft one team and that is your team for the entire season. with daily fantasy you can enter new contests and draft fresh teams each week. both draft kings and fan dual have banned employees from playing fantasy games for money until a details industry policy is established. i kind of compared it to the parents say i didn't say you could go to the party. it is still slow gasia. we don't have a lot of major accidents which is good. sometimes we have things that will really effect everyone. today seems like the normal traffic on hay 24 as you take a live look.
7:47 am
traffic is also going to be slow at the bay bridge toll plaza. 25-30 minute delay before you make it on to the bridge itself. [ technical difficulties ] along most of the coast we are holding court early this morning. it was kind of patchy san mateo and santa cruz but now it looks like it has filled in there making a little push over the bay. morning fog. cool lows. sunny and nice. high clouds expected in the extended outlook but no rain. not yet. and believe me i'm looking. 10-15 days out. maybe we will keep an eye to
7:48 am

8:32 am
block the red painted dedicated lanes for muni buses or taxis. this allows for enforcement of drivers illegally stopped. once you are caught on camera it's sent to a parking control officer and a ticket is sent to you by mail. this is to make muni more efficient and safer. since the program started officials have said there is a reduction in transit delays and some muni riders agree. >> usually people block the bus lane they kind of get in the way and it gets people. and it ends up blocking the other road. >> reporter: do you still see that a lot? >> sometimes. only once or twice. >> reporter: many times muni drivers before this law had to unsafely maneuver around other cars illegally parked. this is all part of the muni forward program where they hope to expand transit service by 10% over the next ten years and implement another 22-mile of
8:33 am

8:36 am
he would give them an alcoholic drink tainted with a sedative drug. once his date was unconscious he would sexually assault him. police are investigating jin's actions before those dates as well. >> at this point that is what we are trying to figure out. he's done it several times and it gets over a length of time and this is what they have discovered. so that is what we are trying to reach out in case there are other victims out there. >> reporter: so far fremont police have identified four victims but they say there is everyday there is more. it's possible they may not remember everything that has happened. detectives would like to talk to anyone who may have come in contact with jin. right now he is awaiting extradition. oakland police and crime stoppers are offering up to $10,000 in reward money that leads to the arrest of a killer of a popular ice cream vendor.

substantially similar work. the -- fantasy sports sports gambling is a multimillion dollar game. >> pam cook has more on what employees are accused of doing. [ inaudible ] >> you know what we might have be having a problem with pam's microphone. i apologize for that. when she gets it fixed, we will bring it to you but a lot of people talking about that fantasy sports scandal. >> and what some of the employees may have been doing. and pam is going to get those details back. now let's talk about something we remember from years ago. remember the silk road scandal? that was a black market website where guns and illegal drugs were sold until the federal government stepped in.

the u.s. marshal service announced last month it will sell off the last block of bit coins seized by the master mind. there are more than 44,000 bit coins. they will be sold off in groups of 2,000 in an online auction november 5th. all right we will swing back to pam. pam is talking about how big fantasy sports is and what some of the employees in that industry are accused of doing. >> reporter: yeah it is very interesting. two of the big players are draft king and fan dual. but their plows are accused of doing something that is considered playing unfair. some employees have won big jackpots on betting on each others sites. each won a $-- it gives them a distinct edge that is similar to insider trading. basically they see things like which nfl players had been selected by users and by how
8:43 am
many users so that could help them select their own power team. draft kings and fan dual offer real money, daily fantasy sports rather than the traditional season long fantasy football games where you basically draft one team and that is is your team for the entire season. with daily fantasy, you can enter new contests and draft fresh teams every week. now both companies have responded to this by saying they do want to protect the integrity of the games they offer to their customers. they have now banned employees for now from playing fantasy games for money until a detailed industry policy is established. now critics say yes there has to be some regulation for the employees but it's not completely like insider trading because there is still an unknown element. dave and gasia, think about it. they can see which customers pick certain players but the players still have to do well. they are going to have to sort of come up with a happy medium

8:48 am
bad is the situation? >> reporter: dave, good morning to you. good afternoon out here. impeccable timing. take a look at this. this is a large tow truck bed. obviously trying to get rid of this van that is stuck here right now. the gentleman -- he told me they have gotten 296 calls over just the last two days or 48 hours and he's a one man band if you will. he says he's only been able to get about 40 of these vehicles out of the water. there is one, two, three, six on this street alone. we are between north charleston over here and if you pan around you will see another tow truck right over there trying to get those two cars out of the water. so quite a job ahead of the people here in south carolina to try to clean up. we're hearing at this hour that
8:49 am
there is about 40,000 people without power and some without drinking water and that obviously is a major concern. there is also unconfirm reports that still about 100 people are trapped in their homes. obviously there have been a lot of dams that have breached up state in the high country right here is interstate 26 and this leads to columbia where a lot of those dams were breached. that is high country up there. this is considered low country along the coast and the fear now is even though the sun is finally coming out, that perhaps some of the water from high country will make its way back to low country and the flooding that is slowly starting to recede we may see these waters rise once again dave. >> yes. you took us right there. you brought us up to date. thank you for the update from charleston, south carolina. you stay safe as well. some americans as we move
8:50 am
ahead now. some americans feel the money they are giving to charitable groups are not being spent wisely. one out of three americans say they have little or no confidence in how their money is being used and being distributed. 41% of those polls say the leaders behind these groups they are paid too much money. and still most americans more than 80% say charities are doing a good job of helping people. now these very key findings have barely changed over the past seven years. that is when researchers at princeton asked almost identical questions in 2008. our time is 8:50. let's get you to where you need to go now. sal has been busy watching our commute. what are you seeing out there now? >> i still see slow traffic out there although it's improving a little bit. we've had a lot of slow traffic. let's start off and take a look at those east bay commutes. east and south bay. 280 northbound will be slow getting up to highway 17. i think a lot of people
8:51 am
diverted to 280 because 101 is such a joke. northbound 101 near moffett field we had an earlier crash. i can put the maps up for you and show you traffic will be busy from basically blossom hill road to mountain view. 237 has backed up from 680. this is even effecting 880 as people come down from 880. fremont is a huge mess as a result of that. if you can avoid this area, you do yourself a favor. let's go to the bay bridge toll plaza and traffic is backed up to the maccarthur maze. about a 25-30 minute delay. 8:51 let's go to steve in the weather center. >> you were not joking, sal. it's a mess down there. it's an outrage. morning fog increase maryland was holding court on this. working its way in around petaluma and up to santa rosa. so morning fog. cool lows to mild lows.
8:52 am
water temps came up so the coast and the city their lows came up as well. sunny and nice but warmer tomorrow. that will take us into thursday and friday. maybe upper 80s to near 90. but again the days are getting shorter and nights longer. low clouds and fog around. from california and up to utah there is snow on the rockies. found a picture of snow around colorado. 50s on some of the temps. 60s for others but it's close. bodega bay and all the way down to half-moon bay and brentwood are all in the 60s. there is the low. that is a big weather maker. look at the cloud cover streaming toward portland and seattle. coming up along a very deep system. out ahead of that teeter totter effect the ridge of high pressure is building out ahead of us. nice to mild to warm. 60s and 70s but a lot of 70s and 80s.
8:53 am
inland temps are right about where they should be although they are ready to warm up tomorrow. around the bay because of the over night lows are warmer. the days are also near average to slightly above. so temperatures are really not on the cool side even though we are getting cooler readings at night. let's face it the nights are longer. warmer wednesday, thursday, and friday and we'll cool down as we head into the weekend. >> like you said no hundreds. >> near 90 though. for some on thursday and friday. >> thank you. time is 8:53. a new study showing getting the right amount of exercise may not be enough to protect you from heart disease. people who exercise 150 minutes per week which is is the recommended amount lowered their risk of heart failure by only 10%. the research shows that is not good enough. they also found people who doubled the recommend amount saw a 19% decrease and if you exercise 10 hours a week, you
