breeze in a long time. that stirs up the fog so it is not pronounced as yesterday. mostly cloudy skies. cooler conditions. breezy. some light rain developing later tonight and then moving south. light rain. mainly cooler and cloudy by tonight. temperatures on their way down over the next few days. in fact, low 60s by tomorrow. sal, what do you have for us at 7:01. >> we have crowded conditions all over the place. we will start with the bay bridge. it get off to a shaky start. traffic is pretty slow. a lot of people have arrived and you will see traffic slow in every lane except for the carpool lane getting on to the bridge itself. we're looking at a commute where traffic will be busy on the san mateo bridge westbound getting off to the highrise. the difference from yesterday, we don't have heavy fog. that makes it easier to see. 880 is slow out of concord to walnut creek. we're looking at the middle part of the east bay.
traffic here will be busy. 238, southbound -- i'm sorry, northbound 238 to southbound 880, an earlier accident and a lot of slow traffic in that area. it is 7:02. back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. >> the president-elect and his team are rushing to fill thousands of west wing positions as president obama is offering some advice to his successor. doug luzader reports from washington. >> reporter: we have just seen just two official hires so far. but the trump team is set to make announcements later this week. what will the white house look like next year? it is taking shape where president-elect donald trump and mike pence and others will meet today to put together their team. steve bannon will be chief street gist and reince priebus
will be the chief of staff. rudy giuliani reflected a bit last night. >> john would be a very good choice. >> is there anybody better? maybe me. .net know. >> reporter: jeff sessions could become secretary of defense. he was a trump supporter almost from the get-go. perhaps it could go to new hampshire senator kelly who just lost her re-election bid. who will stand behind this podium as press secretary? that could be the campaign manager, kellyanne conway or laura ingram. >> reporter: president obama wouldn't bite when asked about recent trump appointments. >> it will be important for him to -- to have the room, to staff up, to figure out what his priorities are, to be able to distinguish again what he was campaigning on and what is practical, what he can actually
achieve. >> reporter: the trump team is certainly in a rush to start filling some of these positions. and some of these posts, especially cabinet secretaries, require senate confirmation. that takes time to prepare for. doug luzader fox news. >> thank you, doug. in one treat, president- elect donald trump says if the election were based on total popular vote, i would have campaigned in california, new york and won bigger and more easily. while donald trump won the electoral vote, hillary clinton won the popular vote. the lek oral college is actually genius in that it brings all states, including the smaller ones into play, says trump. back in 2012, when president obama was reelected, donald trump called the electoral college a disaster.
>> we have been and always have been a city of refuge, a city of sanctuary, a city of love. that's what made us strong. >> mayor ed lee held a unity rally at city hall. he reached out to immigrants and muslims and those in the lgbt community, those who feel threatened under a donald trump administration. president-elect trump has threatened to hold federal funding from sanctuary regardless what happens in washington, mayor lee says there will be no walls in san francisco. to the south bay where the mayor issued a statement to the people in the city saying, quote, we've got your back. about 40% of the residents were born in a foreign country and many are in fear. he writes we will not tolerate hate crimes in san jose. we will not allow our police to be used for federal immigration
enforcement. we will protect rights of san jose rights and the community through our office of immigrant affairs. hundreds of students marched in oakland protesting against donald trump. the students walked out more than a dozen oakland schools including oakland tech. they marched from the bart station to oakland city hall. >> i believe i'm out here because we don't have the right to vote but it is really affecting us. so we want our voices heard by like protesting, showing that we don't want trump and we don't agree with what he believes in. >> we didn't get the chance to vote. this is our way of speaking out. and like we really wanted everybody to hear our side of the story. >> the students' list of demands included preserving sanctuary cities. it's been a week now since last tuesday's election.
san francisco still has nearly 100,000 ballots yet to be counted. the elections department reports that tabulations are taking time because of the long ballot in san francisco this year. there are approximately 93,000 ballots that still need to be processed, most of them are mail-in votes. officials think it will take another week to finalize the votes. there is some question about the state senate battle between scott weiner and jane kim. weiner leads kim 53.2% to 47.7%. even though he is in the lead, he has not claimed victory. uc berkeley students are protesting today and thursday against an internationally renowned professor accused of sexual ahasment. architecture professor and middle east scholar put his hand on a student's thigh in 2013 what and was grooming her
to become a sexual partner. the professor denies the allegations saying he feels victimized. students are demanding his immediate suspension. the rally today is a meeting of campus officials to address students' concerns. erns. what you're seeing here are live pictures from what was a sunrise protest and march at city hall. at least a few hundred people appear to be gathered here. this is one of more than 200 rallies happening across the united states today. the protesters say they oppose the dakota access pipeline, a 1200 mile pipeline that could transport half a million barrels of crude oil every day from north dakota to an existing line in illinois. the obama administration is withholding the final permit as it examines concern that's it will damage sacred tribal sites. the time is 7:08. happening now, a traffic alert
if you drive in san francisco. expect big changes tonight to one of the most congested roads in san francisco. ktvu's allie rasmus is on van ness avenue. a traffic nightmare is developing. what is it like out there right now? >> reporter: it is perfectly type right now. traffic is moving smoothly on both directions. right now you can tell there are three lanes of traffic in each direction on van ness. that will change starting tonight. there will be just two lanes of traffic so the city can create its rapid bus project. here is an animation of what it will look like when it is finished. the center lanes will be for muni buses. the idea is to speed up the flow of buses on the thoroughfare so they arrive every four to five minutes. when we told drivers about the changes going into effect tonight, the question was how do i get around it?
>> franklin, oak street. >> you're going to find ways to get around it. >> trying to of course. >> i don't know what people are going to do. how are they going to get -- i think franklin is going to be crazy. right? >> that's going to add another 15 minutes to my commute probably every day. >> reporter: now, some of the work on the project started last week actually when crews started shutting down all of the left turn names on van ness. no left turns allowed in either direction on this roadway going forward. as you heard the people say in the interview, franklin seems to be the major thoroughfare that people will take to get around van ness. 24 hours from now, expect congestion on the side streets as well. >> allie rasmus in san francisco, thank you. shell casings scattered after a gun battle in a fremont neighborhood. >> another one on the concrete and one up by the gate. why it revolves around one
home and what investigators found inside. if you're driving this thanksgiving holiday, you're not alone. why experts expect a rise in travel for an eighth straight year. still very slow in some areas. some commutes are not moving very well at all, including this one trying to get into san francisco. well, finally a pattern change. we have an on shore breeze. big low clouds and low fog and light rain under in mendocino county. we will see if it makes it this far south. can i keep the walnuts? yes. but i get to pick your movie. can i pick the genre? nope. with the blue cash everyday card you get cash back on purchases with no annual fee. backed by the service and security of american express.
>> welcome back to mornings on 2. it is 7:13. police in fremont searching for the people involved in a gun battle yesterday where one man was hurt over an illegal marijuana operation. shots were fired at this home on fremont boulevard near interstate 680. two people wearing masks tried to break in and started shooting.
the people inside the home fired back. a car window was shattered by a bull set and a trail of blood on the sidewalk. an hour later a man with a bullet wound showed up at san leandro hospital. >> it's almost akin to having gold at your house. if you have gold at your house and you tell people you have gold at your house and that gets into the ears of the wrong people, they may come and try to take your gold. >> fremont police say a sophisticated marijuana grow operation was found in the home. the man that was shot was renting the home. he was growing the marijuana. the two people who tried to break into the home and the other people who lived at the home escaped. the time is 7:14. after a long debate, the oakland city council agreed to consider changes to how it permits the sale of marijuana. businesses would no longer have to turn over 25% of the profits
to city but they would be required to pay back taxes and fines of $10,000 for operating without a license. the city council also agreed to set aside half of the permits to people convicted of marijuana crimes or live in an area with a high number of marijuana arrests. supporters say the new rules would create new opportunities for those whose lives have been impacted by drugs. >> helping people who are victims of the war on drugs get clearance to get job. helping hard hit neighborhoods with issues like jobs. a vote on the changes is not expected until january. it would only apply to medical marijuana but may serve as a template for the recreational sale of marijuana that becomes legal in 2018. if you're traveling during the thanksgiving holiday, you will have plenty of company.
a million more people expected to travel than last year. the eighth straight year that thanksgiving travel has gone up. researchers say it is because of a boost in consumer confidence. the heavy travel period starts next wednesday and continues through sunday. 80% of people will be driving for thanksgiving. others will fly, take the bus or head off on a cruise. the time is 7:16. the early morning commute was problematic but it looks like it has smoothed out a bit. >> yeah. not a lot of major lane closures. we will start with the east bay and highway 4. a lot of slow traffic through bay point and getting into -- pittsburgh and bay front and getting into concord. from 680 on 680 from about 242, down to walnut creek and stretching a little bit into alamo, we have a lot of slow traffic there as well. let's go to the bay bridge toll plaza. the traffic is backed up. it is recovering a little bit. earlier we had a stalled
vehicle, much earlier on the bridge. those tend to linger, those backups tend to linger throughout the whole morning. the silicon valley commute, 280, 101 all slow this morning. if you're starting off in the west valley, in sunnyvale and cupertino, it doesn't look bad. remember everybody is heading your way. slow traffic from earlier problems in the santa cruz mountains. at 7:17 let's go to steve. >> sal, big changes today in the form of a big fog bank that is getting pushed along by a weak front that is producing rain up to ukiah. it is reaching closer. good morning, steve. and morning. a good 50 degrees and overcast in sonoma. now, yesterday a lot of it was right down -- it was right down here. today it lifted a little bit. better visibility. some airports report half a mile of visibility.
our system is holding together. let's give it credit. it is slowing down a little by. it will drape across the north bay. end result for most will be cooler under cloudy to mostly cloudy conditions. santa rosa down to 64 after yesterday's 73. same for san francisco. 64. 68 yesterday. and san jose from 70 to 64 as well. san francisco's 64 is close to average. that 59 low this morning is way above. it should be 50. '80, 2010 the record highs and lows. the system is holding together. very weak. it will make it to the sonoma county and lake county as well. getting light rain up in mendocino county. it is a sign of things to come later aafternoon and into tonight -- later this afternoon and into tonight. this is the strongest delta breeze that we have seen in weeks. it has been light out of the east or north since the beginning of the month just
about. that's a huge change. an on shore breeze. here is your front direction. southeast, south, southeast. these are all different patterns that we have seen from the east and north for the last two weeks. upper 50s, hayward. san jose, oakland. some locations are running 2 to 10 degrees warmer than 24 hours ago. a couple of 40s holding on. not much. a lot more 50s than we have seen. hillsberg 52. 55 in tahoe because of the south breeze in advance of that. very mild. the cool air is up here though. that spills in tomorrow. you will notice it. but tonight it will be cloudy skies and light rain will make it. even by the evening commute. some of that could be in the form of drizzle over by the coast. overall, mostly cloudy and cooler pattern as temperatures slide into the 60s for most locations. an isolated 70 or so. but i think everybody in the
low to mid-60s. even cooler yesterday after the system slides by in the morning. low 60 ands chilly thursday morning. there will be 30s in wind protected areas. then rain begins in the north on saturday and i think everybody on sunday. >> remember how warm it was over the weekend? i discovered that the ac in my car was broken. but i'm not going to need it. >> you can wait until probably may. >> thank you, steve. let's keep sharing gorgeous pictures. if you do not like to wake up early or stay out late, take a look at your television. stunning photos from our viewers of the super moon last night. >> i like that. that's where the windmills are. beautiful juxtaposition there. >> now, this one with the plane flying through the center of this picture. pam likened this to the et shot where he is on the handlebars of the bike. we so appreciate your sharing
your pictures with us. keep sharing them on facebook, instagram and twitter. the hashtag to use is #ktvu. the next super moon will happen in 2034, 18 years from now. that has inspired the question of the day which is this: what changes do you hope to see in the world by then. >> wow, gasia. >> that is four presidential elections away if follow ticks is your thing. talk to me about your family, life, world. post a comment on to our facebook page or tweet us. again the hashtag is #ktvu. >> that's a good question. the time is 7:21. healing together after a tragic loss. up next, how a sheriffs deputy is bringing people together after he was killed in the line of duty. one of our founding father's graves is badly damaged. addition to tourists that may be partly to blame.
>> welcome back to mornings on 2. the weekend murder of a sheriffs deputy is really hitting a community hard. deputy dennis wallace was shot and killed in fox grove park after responding to a call of a suspicious vehicle. now, he was very active in the community in houston and with the schools. several homes in the area now have blue lights on. honoring his life. one woman says she has had dozens of volunteers at her
homemaking 2200 blue bows by hand for the schools, trees and lamp posts in houston. >> it's not just a guy wearing a badge who is a jerk writing you a ticket. but it's a guy that people actually really love. and we really loved dennis. and our hearts are going to break for a really, really long time. >> the volunteers say they have cleaned out most of the stores in the county, buying up blue ribbon. plus blue ribbon donations have come in from san joaquin county and the bay area. san francisco supervisors will debate new limits for short term rentals. this comes one day after airbnb decided to crack down on illegal hosts. it is willing to give the city information about its clients as part of a mandatory registration system and promises to obey san francisco rules, limiting the number of days that a landlord on airbnb
can rent out a home. they are consider shortening the term to 60 days each year. people magazine has named its sexiest man alive. this year the honor goes to duane the rock johnson. the magazine says the actor is sweet, smart and sculpted. in friday, forbes named him the highest paid actor bringing in $64.5 million between june of 2015 and 2016. past holders have included david beckham. chris hemsworth the year before that. this happened shortly after midnight. what that means for the holidays. plus -- tempted to move away of california because of the high cost of housing? many are pulling the trigger. we will tell you about a new report out and tell you where all of the people are going. good morning.
we look at a commute where traffic is going to be busy as you drive on highway 4 as it normally would be. we will tell what you 680 looks like when we come back. get ready for a cooler pattern. a mix of clouds and sun this morning. higher clouds are on the move. that will cool us down. more on that coming up. afoot and light-hearted i take to the open road. healthy, free, the world before me, the long brown path before me leading wherever i choose.
live pictures of a protest happening now in san francisco in opposition of a controversial pipeline project that would pass through a native-americans reservation in north dakota. at least a few hundred people have gathered. this is one of some 200 rallies happening across the country. we are sending allie rasmus and we will bring her in more reporting o not what is happen -- reporting on what is happening in the san francisco. we will have the mayor- elect of berkeley in the study. the youngest mayor and first latino mayor of berkeley. >> you will talk to him. >> i'm excited to talk to him. >> my mic is on. let's get to it. a lot of low clouds in place. some sun breaks in there. but morning sun. and then turning mostly cloudy. there will be a mix of sun and clouds here. the breeze has picked up and you will notice cooler temperatures out of the 70s
back into the 60s. the front is still holding together. it has produced rain on the north coast. temperatures down from the upper 60 and mid to low 70s. tomorrow will be even cooler than that. san francisco, 64. 59 on the low. way above. 50 is where they should be. light rain in mendocino county. not a lot here. what is more important is what is back here. that has to slide by. it won't be until this evening. i would think light rain might make it down overnight into tomorrow morning. just beginning to move towards lake county. the breeze is the bigger factor. picked up big time. that stirs up a lot of the low cloud deck and fog. look for temperatures in the 50s to start off. 60s on the high side. 7:31. sal, what do you have, sir? >> a lot of slow traffic. a lot not caused by accidents. just a lot of people trying to get to the same place at the
same time. bay bridge, traffic will be busy as you drive in the area here trying to get on to san francisco. and it's going to continue to be slow all the way throughout. you see slow traffic as you drive on to the san mateo bridge as well. we promised you a look at 680 through concord. concord to walnut creek and down into the san ramon area. if we switch to the maps, 680 is slow from concord to walnut creek and down to alamo. 24 is also slow. and 80 slow from hercules to the macarthur maze. it seems slightly better today, just slightly, than yesterday getting into the south bay. 7:32. back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. more and more people are moving out of california. ktvu's janine de la vega you're in san jose. this new report says the high cost of housing has a lot to do with that. good morning. >> doug: good morning, day. a lot of people we have been speaking to have not surprised by the findings of the new
report. to give you an example of the high price of housing, in the cambria neighborhood, i looked on realtor.com. a 3-bedroom house, 1500 square feet is selling for about a million dollars. the real estate data firm core logic found that for every person who is moving into california, there are three californians who are moving out of the state. and the sellers are moving completely out of california. beacon economics found that between 2007 to 2014, 625,000 people left california. many of them moved to texas, or o nevada and arizona. they're fed up with the high housing costs and turns to states where it's more affordable. >> it doesn't surprise me. it really hurts my heart. and i don't know what the solution is. >> i have a roommate. we are a family of four with a fifth person living in our house so we can remain in the area that we love because i
have seen people move out of the area. and then become unhappy because of the weather or maybe they're moving somewhere where there is real snow. i'm from california. you know, it's hard. >> reporter: the economic boom and job market here in california is still attracting people here but pushing others out. recent data from core logics shows that housing has cooled but there is still a high demand. more and more cities building vertical in the highrises in urban areas, just to fit everybody in. >> thank you, janine de la vega, in san jose. president obama is in athens, greece. president obama had a meeting with the prime minister of greece earlier this morning. the two held a news conference as well. during the news conference he was asked by a reporter if he underestimated the anger of the american people that resulted in the election of donald
trump. >> when you see a donald trump and a bernie sanders very unconventional candidates have considerable success, then obviously there is something there that is being tapped into. a suspicion of globalization. a desire to reign in its accesses. >> president obama is working to reassure foreign leaders that the u.s. will not abandon its partnership and alliance obligations despite donald trump's rhetoric in the campaign. a new fbi report shows a big spike in hate crimes against muslims in the country. the crimes jumped 67% last year from the levels in 2014. the biggest spikes since 2001, after the september 11th attacks. the law center blames donald trump's ban on muslims coming
into the u.s. on the increase. it went up 7% last year. in san francisco, a wall of empathy expressing thoughts about the election will stay up through today. organizers set up a message board near the bart station yesterday morning at 16th street. people passing by wrote messages on post-it notes and sent up memory walls near the bart stations. >> if you read them, they are so beautiful. and they're so heart warming. >> we haven't had to take any posts down here because people are kind in person. when you look somebody in the eye, it is hard to say hateful things. >> there are more than a thousand messages on the board. some people wrote poems and drew pictures, expressing empathy. they are looking for an organization that will take the messages and put them on a permanent display. now there's a reward being offered for information leading to the man who fire shots at two san jose police officers
sunday night. the police officers association offering $10,000 to anyone who helps them find and arrest that shooter. the two officers say they were walking the streets of that neighborhood when they saw several men. and as they approached, the men left. but one man turned around and fired several shots at the officers. no one was hit. the police did not fire back. the gunman could face two charges of attempted murder. people hoping to have cab on the thanksgiving table this year might be in luck. we will share video from fisherman's wharf taken this morning. many of the crab boats left at midnight and many are excited for their return. the crab season didn't start until march last year because of warm ocean waters that created an algae bloom. thank goodness it is a different story this year. >> after last year's hardships, it is so wonderful that these gals and guys can get out on time. the crab are clean and beautiful. i can't wait to see our boat
this afternoon. >> there is still some acid showing up in crab samples taken along the northern coast. waters from point reyes north are off limits. a fundraising page is set up to save the grave stone of benjamin franklin. his grave is in philadelphia. it recently developed a big crack partly because with of tourists tossing pennies on it. the tradition came about because of his saving a penny saved is a penny earned. a preservation trust was given money to mix the marble but it is $10,000 short so a gofundme has been set up for the repairs. the san francisco choir is changing up the tour. in 20 minutes, why it has to do with the election of donald trump. less, he will be the young left and latino than in his position. up next, gasia will talk live
with berkeley's mayor-elect about the future of his city. good morning. we see slow traffic in many areas. this is 280. we have a better weather morning. i think that is making the commute slightly better. steve and i -- steve paulson will expand on that coming up. over 1,000,000 californians have gotten something that's been out of reach for far too long: health insurance. how? they enrolled through covered california. it's the health insurance marketplace where you'll find a range of plans from leading health insurance companies that offer you the best combination of quality, rates, and benefits.
>> next month the city of berkeley will be under new leadership. the youngest and first latino mayor. joining us this morning in the studio we welcome berkeley's mayor-elect. thank you for being here this morning. >> thank you for having me. >> you grew up in san francisco partly. now you're in berkeley. everyone is amazed at the fact that you are 32 years old.
but you actually involved in politics much earlier than this. >> yes. nine years old. >> tell me about that. >> at a young age i was concerned about what is happening in the world and developed a social consciousness. at the age of nine years old i was involved in the effort to name a street after my hero, cesar chavez. it has been a life-long effort ever since. >> there have been big changes proposed. you are against highrise buildings. we had a report that said for every one person who comes to california, three people are moving out and the high cost of housing is a reason for that. what about the people who want to live in berkeley but can't afford to. >> it's what i heard from voters. we want to increase density and add more housing but we want to make sure we're get being housing for people who live in berkeley and grew up in berkeley and we have how'sing
that is afford -- housing that is affordable. our teachers, libr. >> dan: rians should be able to live in the city. >> some people say walking out doesn't do anything. you moo need to do something like when you were nine. >> i support that. not only the high school students but college students who are marching in streets in oakland that, we channel that energy, that anger that, concern into something that will change the direction of this country. and i know there's a lot of disenchantment, a lot of concern. and we need to take action so that four years from now we're not in this situation again. >> you got the endorsement of bernie sanders during your campaign. what do you say to people in berkeley who come up to you on the street and say i'm worried. >> i say we need to have hope. after the election, i've had a lot of people who have come up
to me and said your election and the changes in berkeley give us hope that berkeley will continue to lead the way and that we can -- berkeley can provide leadership in changing the direction of the country. berkeley is an international leader. we're not going to get that leadership out of washington. >> your city is several in the bay area without a police chief. how is that search and what do you hope the next police chief will have. >> we have an active chief. we're in search of a new chief. he needs to have the trust of the community. we need to make sure that we have good moral in the department. our police are facing a lot of pressure. we need to make sure that we respect our police and at the same time that we make sure that policing is done with our community's values. >> inside or outside the department? >> right now our acting chief has rose up through the ranks. he is actually a berkeley native.
he has been doing a good job. i think it is preferable that we have a chief inside the department who knows the department, who has worked in the community. i think that provides an important perspective. >> what do you say to the people out there who are unsatisfied with the result of the election that we just had, but i don't know what i can do? i can talk about it, talk to my friends, write on these empathy walls. in terms of concrete action, young people who are not in office can take, what should they do. >> get involved. get politically active. the way that we change government is through political action. i think there are ways that young people can get involved in local government. there are ways that young people can influence elections. i think this is our future. i think it is important that young people get involved and take action. >> and i know there were a number of voter registrations on the berkeley campus. >> there were. i was stunned which the number of young people who voted in the election. it is inspiring. i think that was definitely a
factor in my election to the mayor-ship. >> berkeley an active city and will continue to be. thanks for joining us and congratulations. >> thank you, gasia. >> thank you, mayor. the time is 7:46. let's go to sal. i know you love all things berkeley as well because you went to school there. but you're watching our commute this morning. >> i'm watching berkeley. part of the commute is getting through berkeley, getting to the macarthur maze. here we are more than an hour to drive through. this is because of a bigger than usual bay bridge backup that started with a stalled vehicle a long time ago. it was there for a while. you can see this backup is stretching around the corner. that's why we always show you the bay bridge. do you ever wonder, why are we always showing the bay bridge? if the bay bridge is slow, every other commute in the east bay is affected by this. just a chain reaction. i've been here for too long not to know that anything that happens on the bridge will
affect the entire east bay commute. sometimes as far away as marin county. let's take a look at the east bay commute for people trying to get around it by using the san mateo bridge. it will be slow right from 238. and some people will make the turn here. but if you're driving the other way, heading south, down to fremont, you will see slow traffic there as well. and as we move over to the east shore, i wanted to show you on the road map here how slow it is. it is also very slow on the richmond bridge trying to get over to that area. again, we have a lot of people on the road. not particularly a lot of crashes. but definitely a lot of slow traffic. today's weather is not as foggy though. let's bring steve in. >> thank goodness, sal. >> yes. >> yesterday was tough. we have a little low clouds and fog but there is enough of a breeze stirring things up. a few breaks in the clouds.

county. it is marching to the north bay. napa will get in on light rain. it is not a strong system. it has turned more of a breeze on shore than off shore. the delta breeze has not been this strong for a long time. 50s and 60s, a mild pattern. look for cooling to continue here. low clouds, cool and breezy. light rain to the north. dropping into parts of the north bay later tonight and tomorrow. near average temps now. we have been above for a long time. this are about right. 63 to 67 degrees. 8:01. things better right now, sal? >> we have a lot of slow traffic, steve. this morning we had a little incident on the bay bridge. it was minor in my opinion. a stalled car. it was there for a while. the metering lights came on early and we have not looked back since. on the east shore freeway, it is taking more than an hour. almost up to 90 minutes what it
takes to drive the carquinez bridge to the macarthur bridge. without a lot of traffic, it takes 20 minutes to do this drive. right now it is taking an hour and a half. when you get to the bay bridge, you have to wait another 25 minutes to do that. the drive from vallejo, if you were to get in your car and drive from vallejo to san francisco, it could take you almost two hours to get there. that's just ridiculous really. i cannot fathom. but that's what a lot of people have to do. here is a look at 880 from hayward to fremont. slow traffic. and slow traffic on the san mateo and dunbarton bridge. the traffic will be busy. 280 is a desent alternate to one -- decent alternate to the 101 this morning. 8:02. let's go back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. happening right now, a protest underway in san
francisco against a pipeline project in the midwest. >> the demonstration began 90 minutes ago. still going strong. allie rasmus is live with the complaint from the demonstrators this morning. allie. >> reporter: gasia and mike, this is one of two hundred demonstrations across the country. you can see behind me there is quite a turnout. there are about a thousand if not more folks gathered in front of san francisco city hall. a lot of them have their signs out in the distance and carrying their signs with them. they are preparing to march from here about half an hour from now over to the army corps of engineers office on market street. the protesters are standing in solidarity with the tribe in north dakota. they are opposed to the construction of a 1200 mile pipeline that is going to be transporting half a million barrels of crude oil from north dakota to illinois. let's show you the video from inside the crowd here.
right now people are hearing from several speakers, addressing the demonstrators before they will start walking a short distance away, a couple blocks away from where at civic center plaza. i have one of the demonstrators from oakland. your name is phoenix. why did you feel it was important to be here this morning. this is a pipeline many miles from here. why is it pertinent to us in the bay area. >> the water is life. we need the rivers and the lakes and the oceans to provide the water to nourish us so we can drink it. our children need the water. our families need the water. our communities need the water. >> that is part of the issue here with the tribe that is protesting the construction of this pipeline. they are concerned, the native- americans tribe, is concerned that the final phase of construction is supposed to happen on tribal lands that
cross the river into the a reservoir there. they are afraid that could contaminate the water supply for the tribes out there. we are out in front of san francisco city hall. a lot of the signs make reference to the water issues and water safety. that's why they will be walking to the army corps of engineers. they are in charge of the final construction of the pipeline going through. demonstrators hope that by being out there, they can put pressure by that agency and the obama administration to not provide the permit to construct the pipeline over the water ways. >> thank you, allie rasmus. president obama is in athens, greece. the first stop of his last international trip as president. the president had a meeting with the prime minister of greece earlier this morning. the two men just wrapped up a news conference. president obama was asked by a reporter if he feels responsible for the election of donald trump as the next president of the united states?
>> pretty healthy majority of the american people agree with me on a whole bunch of things. i know that begs the question, well, how is it that somebody who appears to have a very different world view just got elected? as i said, sometimes people just feel as if we want to try something to see if we can shake things up. >> president obama is working to reassure foreign leaders the united states won't abandon its partnerships and alliance obligations despite trump's tough campaign rhetoric. we have information about some possible pending appointments to the incoming trump administration. the president-elect and his team are working to fill thousands of positions just as president obama is offering some advice to his successor. doug luzader has more from washington. >> reporter: we have seen just two official hires so far. but the trump team seems poised
to make a slew of announcements later this week. what will the white house look like next year? it's all taking shape inside trump tower in new york where president-elect donald trump, vice president-elect mike pence and others will meet to put together their team. steve bannon will be chief strategist and reince priebus will be the chief of staff. john bolton is on the list. or rudy giuliani who deflected a bit last night. >> john would be a very good choice. is there anybody better. >> maybe me. i don't know. >> alabama senator jeff sessions could become secretary of defense. he was a trump supporter almost from the get-go. or perhaps it could go to new hampshire senator kelly ayat who just lost her re-election bid. who will stand behind this podium as press secretary? that could be campaign manager callie an conway or laura
ingraham. >> i think people are getting far ahead of the narrative. >> reporter: maybe. but president obama wouldn't bite yesterday when asked about recent trump appointments. >> i think it will be important for him to -- for him to have the room, to staff up, to figure out what his priorities are, to be able to distinguish between what he was campaigning on and what is practical, what he can actually achieve. >> reporter: the trump team is certainly in a rush to start filling some of these positions. and some of these posts, especially cabinet secretaries, require senate confirmation. and that takes some time to prepare for. in washington, doug luzader, fox news. new this morning, speaker of the house paul ryan and several other leaders of the republican finished a news conference in washington d.c. he discussed the results of the election and how the republican party will operate going forward. >> we are on the same page with our president-elect. i talk with donald trump virtually every day. i spoke with mike pence this
morning. we are on the same page and working hand in glove and we will make sure that it is a successful administration. we will make sure that the invoices of the american people are acted upon. >> speaker ryan also said something that he shares with the president-elect is a need for more jobs and he is confident that, quote, we are going to have a unified government. the world famous san francisco gay men's chorus has announced a special tour in response to the presidential election. ♪[music] >> the chorus will visit southern states that overwhelming voted for donald trump. the aim is to change people's minds through music. the group is reaching out to lgbt communities there who feel more discriminated under a trump administration. the building bridges tour begins in the summer of 2018. packing up and moving out. in 20 minutes, the reason that so many people are deciding to

community and with the schools. a number of homes in the area have blue lights on in honor of him. one woman has had dozens of volunteers at her homemaking more than 2200 blue bows by hand for schools, trees and lamp posts in the area. >> it is not just a guy wearing a badge being a jerk writing you a ticket. but it is a guy who people actually really love. and we really loved dennis. and our hearts are going to break for a really, really long time. >> the volunteers say they have bought up just about all of the blue ribbon in the county. now blue ribbon donations have come in from the bay area. $50,000 reward is being offered to solve the killing of a prominent bay area attorney. an anonymous donor has put up award. he was killed last month on the front porch of his el cerrito house. police say they don't know a
motive in the crime but are checking surveillance video. he was a partner in a san francisco law firm. fremont police say a gun battle injured one man involved in a gun shooting. it happened near 680. officers say at least two people wearing masks tried to break in and started shooting. people inside returned fire. a stray bullet hearted a car window. police were not aware what happened until a man showed up at san leandro hospital with a bullet wound. >> this is one of my biggest fears, that my neighbor would have a grow house and somebody would attempt to rob it and there's a shooting. >> police found a sophisticated marijuana operation with more than 460 plants inside of that home. investigators say the man who was shot was renting the home and was growing the marijuana. both the robbers and the other people at the house got away.
uc berkeley events are protesting today against a professor accused of sexual harassment. an investigation found that the architecture professor placed his hand on a student's thigh in 2013 and was apparently grooming her to become a sense you'll partner. the 61-year-old professor denies the allegation and says he feels victimized. students are demanding his immediate suspension. and both the university of california and california state university are considering tuition hikes. if they go forward with the plans it would be the first increase in tuition in six years for either schools. uc schools could raise tuition by about $280 a year. that would be covered by financial aid for most students.

camera. this will add 25 minutes. almost two hours to drive from, let's say, vallejo out to san francisco. that's why a lot of people use the ferry or take bart. they don't want to sit in it. bart trains are crowded too. it really is -- i guess it's a sign of a robust economy. i guess we shouldn't complain. but it is what it is. this is 101. slow traffic in san mateo due to earlier programs. heading from redwood down to the silicon valley, everything is jammed. 8:17 let's go to steve where it is not as foggy as yesterday. >> that is for sure, sal. that makes a difference. some low clouds around. some pockets of fog. higher elevations more so than yesterday. it was right down on the deck. tough for some. low cloud deck and sun breaking through. we get more of the westerly and

number of people migrate being out of the state in 2015. many who have moved are headed to washington, oregon, arizona, nevada and texas. research shows that californians are selling high and buying lower priced homes out of state that are roomier. we spoke to a local homeowner who has been looking to move to colorado or north carolina. >> the house in my neighborhood, you know my neighborhood that used to sell for $350,000, we had a house post for 1.8 million dollars two days ago. there is no reason. the jobs computer support the cost to live here. ere. >> reporter: the booming job market and economy in the golden state is still attracting people to california. in turn it is pushing out lower and middle income workers. and some are observing the market while home prices and rent have continued to rise. people are wondering just how
