tv KTVU Mornings on 2 at 7am FOX March 21, 2017 7:00am-9:01am PDT
>> a vallejo family wakes up this morning finding a tree trying to come into their house. we speak with the family and discuss what they will do next. no laptops, no computers, no cameras. the new restrictions announced overnight on some flights heading into the united states. this and more ahead on mornings on 2. >> this is ktvu mornings on 2. >> 7:00 on a soggy tuesday
morning as we take a look over the city of oakland. the lights are on. i bet you're at home ready to go to work. ready to go to school. this is that gray wet weather we've been talking about. it is finally here. there's also a chance of severe weather. >> uh-huh. >> we will bring in meteorologist steve paulson in a moment. we welcome you back this tuesday, march 21st. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> good morning, i'm dave clark. let's go right to steve paulson. it is a drenching rain outside of our studio. >> for some that is true. it came in yesterday afternoon and evening and now it is pouring. we built this city sends me at 6:45 a.m. ion from twitter by the way our observer michael has picked up an inch and a quarter in san francisco. mike says good morning, steady sideways rain going on in mill valley. but the cell right now is over in berkeley. there is also pretty heavy rain
stretching from vallejo, american canyon back to napa and racing back north. it looks like it has gone past areas to the north. look at that berkeley over to emryville. very intense rain. when mike wrote me that, that was probably right over him. that looks like it has let up a bit. on the peninsula, south san francisco, half moon bay, redwood city to woodside and also on the foster city side, take your pick. it is picks up on highway 17. i would think that will be showing up on your traffic there in a second. also shaded with an upper level low that is rotating in strong energy right there. and that's the source of our possible thunder showers later today. 50s on the temps. cold air arrives tonight. due south breeze. it will be a rainy and blustery day and rainy conditions at times. thunderstorms and hail possible throughout the day. this line moving over to the east bay. the main cell is over berkeley. this won't be out of the
picture until wednesday afternoon, evening. 60s on the temps. sal, 7:02. what do you see. >> i see a lot of slow traffic out there, steve. as a matter of fact, this morning, we have traffic that will be slow in a lot of areas. i think the wet weather is not helping obviously the commute. you can see traffic will be busy as you drive through the area. you will see highway 24 here will be slow. there's the sky. it looks like it is white balancing the camera. sorry about that, kevin. not a bad commute. this it a look at the east shore freeway eastbound 80 headed out to the macarthur maze. it is very slow. let's go to the peninsula. northbound 280 at 92 we have a report of a crash here, reported here. i also want to show you the traffic on highway 101 is going to be slow right in this area. right on -- hold on. right on highway 101. as you drive -- we're having a rough time here. 101 will be slow as you drive through. you will see the traffic is going to be slow.
i want to show you 280 in san jose. for some reason 280 in san jose will be slow getting up to highway 17. northbound 280 traffic will be busy until you reach cupertino. then it gets better finally by the time you reach 85 and head over to 101. 7:04. let's go back to the desk. >> a tree more than a hundred years old fell on to a house in vallejo. the homeowners knew it was a problem and wanted to cut it down but the city wouldn't let them. leigh martinez is live at the home that has now been red tagged. leigh. >> reporter: the family says the tree has not broken through the house but it is leaning on top of the house right now. there is the one bigger branch that seems to be falling -- leaning towards the other side. we have a tree crew out here that the family called. the family heard a crash at 2:13 this morning. they jumped out of bed thinking the shaking was from an
earthquake. they felt the house move and their furniture was rattling. when they looked outside, they saw the large oak tree down in front. >> i was using that land line to call 911 and i was terrified on the phone because while i'm in the house, on the phone, the tree is cracking and coming into the house. at that point i know it's not an earthquake, i know it is a tree. i'm terrified thinking that the tree is going to knock me in the head, come completely through the house or something. >> reporter: now, the family says they tried to cut the tree down 11 years ago but they couldn't get a permit from the city easily because the tree is more than 100 years old. fortunately no one was hurt. the family escaped out the back door with their two dogs. back out here live, we see the tree crew that just showed up. the family called them. their house has been red tagged. so they can't stay here this morning. two gshey say so that is have
part of the problem, finding a hotel that will take the family members and two dogs as well. back to you guys. >> thank you, leigh. an efforts is unway to build a new bridge since the pfeiffer bridge on highway 1 has been torn down. >> the bridge began collapsing after last month's rains caused a landslide and the support pillar shifted. the shutdown of highway 1 in big sur is causing big problems with more than 400 residents stranded. state parks and restaurants cut off as well. caltrans needs to prioritize the bridge replacement over projects or people stuck could run out of food on the other side of the bridge. >> at point, we are desperate not knowing where their next food supply is coming from. there's been that and then there's been the fact that the road is closed and there's
about 400 of us stuck in this section. >> we as a community simply will not survive in any way that is recognizable without a timely rebuilding of that bridge. >> now, rebuilding the bridge is expected to take at least six months and could cost up to $30 million. if you have to leave us on ktvu fox 2, take us with you with our weather app. you will know that our weather am is always posting updates to twitter, facebook instagram. a major change about direct flights to the u.s. coming from eight middle eastern and north african countries. the new order requires passengers on nonstop flights to the u.s. from ten airports in the middle east and north africa to pack electronic devices like laptops and tablets in the checked baggage.
only cell phones and medical equipment will still be allowed in the passenger cabin. coming up for you at 7:30, ktvu's alex savidge has more on the new order and how flights into sfo are affected. well, today governor jerry brown will meet with california's congressional delegation in washington. his first trip to washington since president trump took office. right now california gets $15 billion from the federal government under the affordable care act. and that helped to expand medical coverage to low income residents. it also provides insurance to about a third of the people who live here. california may lose the money if the republicans health care repeal and replace plan is approved by congress. well, in just the last half hour, the president arrived on capitol hill. he is meeting with house republicans. he is there to put pressure on lawmakers who have been skeptical about the republican health care plan. some of them say the plan is too much like the affordable care act. .
now, without the backing of at least some of those republicans, the plan could possibly fail in the house of representatives. republican leaders have already made 43 pages worth of changes to the bill to address their concerns. house speaker paul ryan says the proposal made it out of committee hearing and it is gaining support. >> they have already voted for it. one of the ones that didn't vote for it in the budget committee has come out in favorh si. >> a democrats say they ll oppose the republican plan. it comes up for a full house vote on thursday. the time is 7:09. right now, supreme court justice nominee neil gorsuch is in the beginning of what is expected to be a tough grilling on capitol. >> a long day for sure. >> yes. >> doug luzader is live with how the hearing is going. >> reporter: gasia and dave, good morning. we're about an hour in. this is expected to last around ten hours or so. that is just today.
gorsuch will probably be back for more questions tomorrow and then the next day. so this is a marathon. it's not a sprint. and one would expect that he will face questions about specific cases that he ruled on as an appellate judge but also about specific supreme court cases and his feelings on them and to some degree hearings like this are kind of the same. these nominees get pressed to weigh in on decisions. and then they express reluctance to do that. and ultimately we don't learn a whole lot in these. nevertheless, gorsuch will have to remain on his toes through these hours of questioning. if he doesn't make an error, i think most people expect that he will ultimately make it on to the court. it may depend though on to what degree democrats will oppose this nomination. if they push too hard and if not a single democrat votes for gorsuch in the d, republicans may simply change the rules. no longer requiring 60 votes to get a nominee through for the
supreme court but getting down to just the simple majority in the senate. 51 votes. if they do that, it will be easier the next time that president trump, if he gets another court opening, it will make it easier to get a second person through. so democrats may be somewhat strategic in this. voicing concerns about gorsuch. some of them perhaps supporting him in the end. we will see. but this process will play out for the better part of the week. dave and gasia. >> thank you, doug. here at home, police are trying to identify a driver seen on convenience video backing into a family at a wal- mart. it shows a honda hitting a shopping cart that knocks down a 3-year-old and hits the mother sunday night. the mother picks up the little girl before they got seriously hurt. investigators believe the driver is this woman. she tried to return batteries to the store. she was wearing a sweatshirt with batman logo on the front.
she was angry when the store wouldn't let her return the batteries. >> even though she knew she had hit somebody, she reversed on what appeared to be on purpose and tried to get the people out of her way at all costs. that was extremely dangerous, especially that time of day. >> the honda is possibly silver in color with front end damage unrelate today this incident. there may be damage to the front passenger door as well. instigators say someone in the parking lot kicked the car. the driver is described as latina. this woman could face up to five felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon. the time is 7:12. taxing california millionaires. coming up in 15 minutes, a proposal in sacramento to allow students to go to college for free. dave, you know me. i love a bargain. >> i know. and i love a markdown. when you see one on amazon, you may think great i'm saving money. now a consumer watch dog group says that's not always the
case. the accusations of misleading customers against a retail giant. wet weather is making the commute a little slower. as we look at the east shore freeway, it is getting crowded on the way to the bay bridge. and multiple bands continue to rotate through, producing heavy rain in the peninsula of south san francisco. we will look at that and also rain totals.
>> welcome back. the time is 7:15. pam cook is back in the studio with today's money business. >> that's right. watching stocks, including two well known local companies. >> yes, making news this morning, apple and netflix hit record highs. apple introduced a new ipad and a special edition red iphone 7. netflix is benefiting from the
original programming. stock doing well also this morning. checking in on the markets, do you jones down. started the day higher though with all of that news. apple contributing to a lot of gains there. overall the index down 14 points to 20,889. the nasdaq and s&p 500 also down a little bit as well. traders are watching oil prices this morning as well. the california based consumer watch dog group is accusing amazon of misleading consumers with questionable prices. they have filed a complaint with federal officials. it checked more than 4,000 products sold on amazon. about 25% have a list price that is crossed out with a lower second amazon price. that implies that other retailers sell the products at the higher price. >> the list price really is a bogus price that doesn't seem to have any real relationship to anything. and so they're creating the
impression of a discount, luring consurs ito buy, if you will, when there isn't any such discount at all. >> canadian owe firms fined amazon $1 million for proving the accuracy of list prices. amazon told the los angeles times, quote, manufacturers, vendors and sellers provide list prices. we validate list prices against actual prices recently found across amazon and other retailers and we eliminate list price when we believe it isn't relevant to customers. amazon has a new feature for prime members who can't decide what to wear. you can upload two outfits you're considering wearing and you will receive a response from a team of fashion experts telling you which one looks better. only company employees can see your photos and you can delete your images any time. there's a report that twitter plans to make it easier for media publishers to post
live video broadcasts. twitter will launch a live video interface later this week similar to the one used on facebook that will connect professional video equipment to the twitter platform. it will include tv style ad that's advertiser cans then sponsor and promote. so similar to what we see on facebook and twitter trying to stay in the game. the stock has benefited from the changes. >> all right, pam. are you going to let me get a new iphone. >> a red one? only if you get a case to go with it. if anyone has seen his cracked iphone. >> we don't talk about that. there is no scotched tape on it. >> he is hiding it. thank you, pam. >> we have all kinds of traffic stuff going on, sal. with all of the rain too. >> that's right. you know, we do have crashes that have occurred. we've had a couple of fender benders already off to the side. really i think the store is wet weather. that means extra time for you. if you want to leave the house
and stay on a schedule, highway 24 is slow in lafayette and orinda. it is slow on interstate 680 as well from about 242 as you head down to the walnut creek interchange. it stays slow into alamo as you drive in that area. we're also looking at the bay bridge toll plaza here. and the traffic is going to be backed up for about a 25-minute delay. even the carpool lanes are slowing down. that's because there's a lot of volume. everybody is trying to merge at the metering lights. it just gets slow. even the carpool lanes don't have a big advantage right now. this is a look at 880 north and south. we had a couple of earlier problems in the area. you see how slow it is on 880 south down to -- we're looking at the peninsula northbound 101. they were clearing an accident. that's why traffic in the south bay is going to be treks slow. we will pull back -- we can pull back and i'll show you all of the freeways are slow. there is word of an overturned vehicle highway 17 after highway #. so all of the
traffic coming south towards the santa cruz mountains will be a little slow where you normally don't see slow traffic. that tends to throw people off. 7:19. let's brg ste in with the forecast. >> the forecastis rain. and there's enty to go around. many of the facebook comments coming in. i decided to post those. tweeted them out. it has been pouring in napa for the last four hours. hasn't stopped. and rain surges in redwood estates. a lot more san jose. that is from stephanie. almost always get more rain in redwood than san jose. a couple occasions where that's not the case. but usually it is. san rafael, an inch and a third. mount diablo also an inch and a quarter. sfo has had .65. but nobody lives at the airport. the system right here is the
key. this upper level system has very good jetstream support. and the jetstream is rounding the base of that. right there. and as that does, that's going to enhance the on shore push. as it does, i think colder air aloft will interact with the mild warm temps. if we get any sun breaks, you will see these clouds develop rapidly. already had reports of lightning. very heavy rain as we talked about. it is winding down a little bit in parts of napa. still close back to american canyon and then there is crockett getting heavy rain. berkeley got hammered there a little while ago. that system has since moved off to the east. another is moving in out of berkeley and over the richmond san rafael bridge and heading over 24 towards orinda and moraga. but the main cell has stretched from hayward back over to san mateo on the san mateo bridge. and south fran, back over to san mateo. some of that is embedded with
heavy rain. speaking of, in santa cruz mountains, highway 17 is lit up. that's near the radar site. so it might be enhanced a little bit. still pockets of heavy rain. don't want to forget you to the north but you're on a drier slot right now. santa rosa has had three quarters of an inch of rain. maybe a little bit of a lull. there is still some up into lake county. south lake tahoe, truckee, rain mostly. trying to turn to snow. i think it will take a while until the cold air arrives. 50s on the temps to 60s. it is out of the south. go south. that's where the direction is for some. a southeasterly breeze until it rotates through. i think that could trigger hail and thunderstorm activity. good area of rain moving towards brentwood and out to oakley and antioch highway 4. that is the key right there. the moisture will rotate in and just pummel southern california late tonight and tomorrow.
a couple inches of rain forecast for them. it's not just us. it's good. we will take all of the rain that we can get. once you get to april, that's about it. today is prime time. there will be heavy rain tomorrow morning. i think clearing to thursday and then a strong system friday. >> okay. i've already got friends making plans to go to the snow this weekend. >> uh-huh. >> i'm concerned about their driving. they are undaunted. >> not saying anything. >> we're not their parents. you're on your own. >> thank you,. >> thank you, steve. this came in as a call of somebody trying to break into a car. it turned out to be so much more. the major bust made by berkeley police thanks to a trip from an alert citizen.
>> the time is 7:26. berkeley police say a recent drug bust is proof community policing is working. officers received a call about three suspicious people possibly breaking into a car near the campus. while the three did not burglarize the car, they found meth and a digital scale with suspected meth. they arrested the three people. a search warrant for the home uncovered items including a thousand pills, a loaded assault weapon, ammunition, cash and a credit card embossing machine. >> if you were in the identity theft business and manufacturing credit cards to support those identities, you would have that type of machine as well as a scanner to load
information on the card. >> the three are now facing charges, including gun and drug violations and they are in jail. well, a measure in the state legislature could make public colleges and universities tuition free for california residents. it would impose a 1% tax on incomes over $1 million. to help pay for tuition and fees for in-state students and would cost just over $2 billion. it would needs a two-thirds vote to pass. it would be tie today a constitutional amendment to put the tax before voters for approval. now, another new bill would require teachers in california to be on probation for a year longer. right now, teachers can get permanent status after two good years on the job. under a new bill, that would be extended to three years. san diego assembly woman dr. weber introduced it and says it will give struggling teachers more time to become good
teachers. >> if they're having difficulty but they have the potential to be a good teacher after three years, they can have the extension to five years. so it gives us a longer period of time for them to earn a permanent status. >> now, the state's teachers union hasn't taken an official position on the bill but has ncerned. worried it may punish teachers. many othestates require three to five years probation for their teachers. san francisco is telling at&t to move faster in its effort to clean graffiti off of the utility boxes around the city. in many cases, tagging on the silver utility boxes has stayed there much longer than that. the deputy director of the public works department certainty a strongly worded letter to at&t demanding that it ramp up the clean-up response. the company is making improvements and stream lining its effort to address the
graffiti. now president trump takes aim at colin kaepernick. it was during a rally in kentucky. plus -- plus new rules in place this morning from the trump administration banning larger electronic devices on in-bound flights here to the u.s. from certain muslim majority countries. we will you about the new restrictions in place and why officials say they are necessary. guys, thanks for making our new french toast so authentic,
you'll swear it came from a fancy brunch place. its 100% real. just like my favorite sport - pro wrestling. um... yeah, about pro wrestling... its fake. what? lies!! its... all ...lies!! why didnt you tell me?!! sorry jack, i thought you knew. try my new grilled french toast plate with syrup and hickory smoked bacon. the newest addition to my brunchfast menu. hit me with this, youll feel better.
>> the time is 7:32. rain on the camera lens. a sweeping view of oakland right along the estuary. the windshields are intermittent right now as they were for me driving through coming through oakland. many may have them on full blast. others waiting to use them. they will get used today. march 21st. it is a wet day. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> good morning. i'm dave clark. talking about your weather, steve paulson knows everything. you know you're going to be busy. >> i'm already busy. i have been busy since 4:01. plenty of reports of rain coming through. some stacked up to two and a half inches of rain. mount st. helena has done that. out walking in the rain. why didn't you wait until after the rain stopped. >> [howling] >> now i'm going to get somebody saying my cats and
dogs went crazy. all right. animal planet. an inch and a third in middleton. i remember misty drizzle she used to work here a long time ago. there is not much left of that. some areas are getting hammered. fairfield over to cordelia. that might be enhanced a little bit. moving through the east bay over to alamo, san ramon, danville, back over to piedmont and berkeley, kensington and richmond coming out of southern marin county over the golden gate bridge and san francisco roadway w. i has had an inch and -- which has had an inch of a third already. highway 17, i would think, sal, is really on -- lit up for you as well. the key is this low right here is a tremendous amount of energy rotating around that that will enhance the rainfall throughout the day and tonight and into tomorrow. if we can get breaks in the
clouds and the south wind and some of the afternoon heating could trigger some afternoon thunderstorms. think the valley north is the best opportunity. it will be prime time. and southern california tomorrow will see a lot of rain as well. 60s on the temps. all right, sal. what -- what -- what area is really the worst right now, would you say. >> the east bay in general. >> okay. >> remember how john madden used to draw on tv. >> yes. >> now i have a new respect for him. i already had a lot of respect for him. >> are you going to draw for us. >> i want to circle something. and circling is not -- let me see if i can make a decent circle. 59 minutes. that is actually not bad. >> i'll give you a b plus. >> thank you. >> you're welcome. >> 59 minutes, that is a long commute driving from the carquinez bridge out to the macarthur maze. that's just because there have been a couple much issues. it is wet. so it is a combination of things. not just one thing. a lot of people are on the road.
this is highway 24 in lafayette. have slow traffic here. a lot of the east bay commutes will be slow. especially when it starts to rain, as steve said. this is a look at the bay bridge toll plaza. it is not raining herew but it has been. check out the carpool lane. this lane is usually moving well. traffic will be slow. 880 north and southbound from about the coliseum as you drive through. we also have a look at 880 going the other way. you see traffic will be slow. very slow. we had a couple of accidents in this area. this whole thing, southbound and northbound has been very slow. northbound 101 they were clearing an accident. it is now off to the side. and southbound 17 at highway 9, there's an overturned vehicle. look at all of the slow traffic in the south bay. so this commute has definitely been affected by the wet weather. 7:35. let's go back to the desk. the trump administration
posed a new ban on electronic devices on direct flights coming into the u.s. from several muslim majority countries. alex savidge you're at sfo right now. tell us more about this new order. good morning. good morning. >> reporter: well, dave, good morning to you. this order is not response to a specific threat. administration officials say they simply continue to worry about the possibility of terrorists hiding explosives inside laptops or tablets. so those larger devices will now be banned from specific flights coming into the u.s. from certain countries in the middle east and africa. now, the new rules are very narrow. that means that only two flights coming into sfo will be impacted. this ban applies to electronic devices larger than a cell phone. passengers cannot bring those devices into the cabin of the plane on in-bound direct
flights from certain muslim majority countries. jordan, egypt, and morocco. phones and certain medical devices will be allowed in the cabin on those flights. now, these new restrictions will only apply to about 50in- bound flights a day coming into the u.s. that means most travelers will not be impacted. >> i'm not too sure. i'm not too sure. because it didn't impact me, i didn't really care about it so i just got on my -- got my stuff packed and got to the airport. so -- ort. so -- >> reporter: and of course this move by the administration comes a week after president trump's second bid to restrict travel from muslim majority nations was blocked by the courts. under this new directive put out by the department of homeland security, larger electronics such as laptops, tablets and kindles will have to go into a passenger's
checked bag. again, they will not be allowed inside of the cabin. we should also point out that these new restrictions do not apply to any american carriers. this ban will remain in place indefinitely. the white house is reacting to the testimony by james comey yesterday who disputed president trump's claim that former president obama ordered the wire tapping of trump tower. >> we are still at the beginning phase of a look into what kind of surveillance occurred and why. and that there's a question about what leaks occurred, why they're happening. and, again, director comey -- i believe one of the big headline that's should come tout of today, when he talks about the unusually high amount of leak that's are coming out of this and classified information leaked, that in itself should be a question. why is so much information being leaked out now. >> the fbi director comey testified that he had no
information to support president trump's allegation of wire tapping. he also confirmed the fbi is investigating potential russian interference in the u.s. presidential election, including any connection between the trump campaign and the russian government. california democrats are fighting back against president trump'an plto build a border wall. theyntroduced a bill that would force e state to drop the pension investments with any company that is involved with building the planned wall along the mexican border. fill ting is one of the authors of the bill. it comes day after the federal government called for prototypes of the proposed walls. later this week, san francisco supervisor hillary will introduce new legislation to ban border wall contractors from bidding on contracts in san francisco. she will hold a noon time news conference in front of a company that has shown interest in building the border wall. the supervisor says the city
should encourage companies to continue to build bridges, not walls. happening today, opening statements will begin at 9:00 in the trial of three santa clara county deputies charged with murdering an inmate. the three are accused of beating together a mentally ill inmate. a judge ruled earlier this month there was enough evidence to proceed to trial. if convicted the three men could be sentence today life in prison. the deputies are on paid administrative leave and out on $1.5 million bail. the time is 7:10. san jose police now releasing new information about a man who was shot in and critically wounded by three police officers last friday. we're finding out that 53-year- old john bowls pointed what police say was a caulking gun at officers, not a real gun. bowls started throwing things out of his truck, taking off his clothes and chasing after a mother and her children.
when police arrived, bowls rammed his truck into a police car. bowls pulled into a mall parking lot and pointed what looked like a weapon at officers and revved his engine. that's when three officers hoped fire. >> they fired at the suspect out of fear that he would enter the crowded parking lot and strike innocent people. >> now, the officers involved are on paid administrative leave. that is standard procedure during an investigation. also video from the body cameras are being checked as well. bowls is facing several charges. he is still in the hospital under police watch. it is raining again all across the bay area. for one vallejo family, it has already made a big mess. the very close call after a tree came crashing down on to their home. also the big dance comes to san jose this week. how you could get a taste of the action even if you don't have a -- ticket. it's a slow one as you
might expect with the wet weather. we've had slow traffic on almost every commute, including this one which is checking in at a big number. we will give you another drive time for this comi up. and there's big nuers on the rainfall totals coming in. overtwo and a half for some, especially towards mount st. helena and santa cruz mountains. we will take a look at that coming up.
was reported that nfl owners don't want to pick him up because they don't want to get a nasty tweet from donald trump. do you believe that? ieve that? >> you will remember that kaepernick refuse today stand during the national anthem before nfl games last season. it was his way of protesting police treatment of minorities. he has already said he would not take a knee during the anthem this coming season. spike lee is al talking about ckkaeperwho is his friend. he posted this photo to instagram and said how is it that there are 32 nfl teams and kap is still a free agent. some analysts say kaepernick's protest is to blame. and some say it is because he didn't play well last year. we're asking for the question of the day, why do you think that kaepernick has not been picked up by a team? let us know what you think. take a vote on the twitter page
or over on ktvu.com. or leave comments on our facebook page. >> that is a good question. basketball fans will descend on san jose as they get ready to host the sweet 16 on thursday. they are one of four cities picked to host the sweet 16. they're expecting 18,000 fans to fill the shark tank thursday night as west virginia plays gonzaga. both days are sold out. >> it's a pretty exclusive and elite event. it doesn't surprise me that the tickets were snatched up pretty quickly. in fact we have been sold out for a couple of months now. >> if you couldn't get tickets, you could still be part of march madness. watch the teams practice tomorrow starting at noon. and it is free. admission is free. parking is free. and whoever wins the games in
san jose, they move on to the final four in phoenix. the warriors won 111-95 in an emotional game where steph curry got into a shoving match. openly mocking kevin durant. let's wait to see that. for the first time this season. he capped it off with a celebratory dance. the bad blood between the teams boiled over just before halftime. curry was in an altercation with christian. other players including westbrook joined in. he said it was much ado about nothing. you could say he got the last laugh after this as the warriors won and then he made a three-pointer at the halftime buzzer. if i could ask the director to hang on the video so we can see that. >> sweet. >> and then he is out of here. >> i'm out of here. take that, russell.
the time is 7:47. sal, you take it from here. you have a lot of traffic stuff with rain to talk about. >> yeah. the stretch between the carquinez bridge and the macarthur maze is very slow. it is taking more than an hour now to drive the stretch. and a lot of it is slow in richmond and el cerrito. the rain is really coming down. at about an hour as you drive on this freeway here. just give yourself plenty of extra time. golden gate bridge, it looks like it stopped raining here now. it is still wet. the traffic in southern marin is not bad. here is a look at the bay bridge toll plaza. you can see that traffic is backing up a little bit at the toll plaza. the carpool lanes have improved. san mateo bridge moderately heavy. highway 101 is pretty slow in san mateo and burlingame this morning. also slow on 101 approaching mountain view because of earlier issues. and 0 is still jam packed. this morning 880 is jam packed in both directions from 238. i'll show you something though.
you snow sometimes how you say i'll take 580 instead of 880, well 580 is slow off of the bat from castro valley all the way up to almost the maze. so this morning, i would say there's no real difference between 880 and 580. 7:49. let's bring steve in. >> didn't look like it. >> nope. >> thank you, sal. all right. let's get to it here. rain totals to get to. some areas picking up about two and three quarters. this is from south san francisco. about a 12-hour total. an inch and a quarter from carrie stark. i would say rain not showers. those are my words, not hers. my least favorite word is it is showering. it is not showering. it is raining. there is pretty good rain out to san jose. burst of heavy rain passing through los gatos. have to let the dog in.
probably too late now. campbell and san jose, right there. it is coming out of the santa cruz mountains. nothing too crazy. there are occasionally bursts of moderate to heavy rain. around cordelia, we are getting heavy rain. there it goes to fairfield and vallejo and benecias well. that is intensalong the lines right there. and now picking up past bay point and over towards the east bay now. certainly around alamo and danville, over towards blackhawk. it looks like mount diablo as well and berkeley, el cerrito, kensington, san pablo. all in there as well. it looks like it is letting up a little bit. but they've had good rain this morning. santa cruz mountains it has been rather steady for a while. santa cruz proper, and on the peninsula earlier we had what looks like to be a break right now. look, i'm telling you right now, okay, this rotating right around there is going to hammer
us late tonight, tomorrow morning. once that rotates through, we are going to have heavy rain wednesday morning and early and also until about noon. now, this also will rotate in some cool unstable air. i would think farther to the north. although very few breaks. the snow level is high right now. i expect that to go down tomorrow. a mix of rain and snow above lake level here. 50s and 60s on the mild side. if we could get sun breaks, that would help to fuel thunderstorms. probably won't happen. we had one report at the russian river, south which is the wind direction it is coming from. livermore south, hayward south, san jose east. not that i'm ignoring you to the north but you're in a lull right now. but that will pick up later. once this low rotates in, that will trigger thunderstorm activity to the north and the valley for sure. look what it is doing. tapping into moisture to the south and funneling that right towards southern california tonight and tomorrow.
they will get very heavy rain. we're expecting maybe another half inch to an inch and a half for some. very heavy rain for some. a break thursday. friday is the strong jest system in the series. i think there could be two to four, maybe five inch amounts in the north bay. keep an e on that. it has a lot more energy than the first two systems. by sunday night, a weak guy passing through. and then it rocks like we will get a break. this week will be very active. 60s on the temps. i don't see any breaks. but if ever there was a day out to the valley today or tomorrow could be one for severe weather. rain will take us into wednesday afternoon and evening. rain into saturday morning. should get a break saturday night and sunday morning. >> steve, you called this one. >> yeah, a lot of energy out there. when it is a rain year, it is a rain year. when it's a dry year, these wouldn't have made it. >> thank you, steve. a passenger commuter train in the north bay getting closer
to becoming real. the vote last night and why some community members are still concerned. plus, despite all of the rain we're getting, water officials are still making rain. up next, we will tell you what cloud seeding is all about. should be within reach. in an affordable dream kitchen that works as hard as you do. save up to 20% at the ikea kitchen event.

extreme drought conditions. the santa barbara water agency is cloud seeding above reservoirs. cloud seeds has increased rainfall over the reservoirs by 21%. they are using iodine particles out of a plane seeding plane. plane-- out of a cloud seeding plane. >> it is microscopic smoke. it is like vitamins. the clouds become more efficient at putting rain on the ground. >> there is some who say the release of chemicals during cloud seeding is not safe. however the water agency says the small amounts released into the atmosphere is pretty many hales. the time is 7:57. time to check in with mike and gasia. >> thank you, dave. a senate hearing under way for neil gorsuch. the questions that he is
>> it was the branches coming into the house. >> not an earthquake, a tree falling on to their home. the frightening homes for a vallejo family that came in the middle of the night. the new restrictions announced overnight on certain flights headed into the united states. it is ahead on mornings on 2. this is ktvu mornings on 2. >> good morning. happy tuesday morning to you out there. rain is falling across the bay
area. heavy at times. this is actually what it looked like a short time ago in the city of berkeley. even if it's not raining where you are, pack the umbrella as well as a jacket. because we are just getting started. good morning. welcome back to mornings on 2. i' mike mibach. >> i'm gasia mikaelian. it is dark behind us in the oakland he is to youarrow -- estuary. >> yes. the colder air associated with the low is on its way. i would think sonoma county up to mendocino county and lake and napa and out to the valley for sure. ben loma, 1.73. three and a third for st. helena. soquel, two and a quarter.
san francisco our observer 1.37. oakland, .55. more than that in the hills. millville have had .55. up in the hills a lot more than. san jose in the rain shadow again. a lot has let up. heavy rain around los gatos and san jose for a bit. but there is some still rotating through. out to cordelia and crockett, pretty good rain. and back to vallejo and benecia, you see that wrapping back around at highway 29. good rain around berkeley as well. the east bay may be calming down a little bit. still rain in el cerrito, kensington and right into the santa cruz mountains. the beat goes on down there. all associated with this system which is now getting closer and rotating in bands of the unsettled conditions weather. that will give us brief heavy rain. 50s and 60s on the temps. there is a robust southerly breeze. i think we will get heavy rain
late tonight and tomorrow morning from this next system coming in. and it shows up right about there. it is going to give us an unsettled pattern today and tomorrow as well. sal, 8:03. this is usually when the south bay starts to get the red on the screen. what is going on. >> that's true. we have red everywhere today steve because of the wet weather and a lot of crashes that have occurred. we're looking at the east shore freeway taking an hour to drive from the carquinez bridge to the maze. remember the normal time is about half an hour. they're doubling the commute here as you drive out to the maze. at the bay bridge, it is not that bad. people are not getting through. i have a feeling they're stuck in traffic upstream. 880 and 80 is slow. there is a crash on the grade. traffic is backed up out of pleasanton. 880 is slow and solid as you drive down to the fremont area.
in san jose, traffic will be slow as well as you drive through. the peninsula traffic is slow because of earlier issues. almost everywhere you look, we have slow traffic. this is 280 in san jose. the traffic is going to be slow in both directions. just got a tweet from someone. just going to read it off my phone. it just came in. please let your drivers know that westbound 580 at golf links at least a tree has come down partially blocking some of the lanes. that is 580 at golf links. a lot going on. be careful out. >> a vallejo family escaped after a tree fell on to the house. they could not get a permit to remove it after worrying about it for years. leigh martinez talked to them about the terrifying wake-up call during the middle of the night. >> reporter: the tree is leing on the structure. it has not broken through the house. and there is a big portion of the tree leaning off to the opposite end. they have a tree crew out here that the family has called.
the family heard a crash at 2:13 this morning. they jumped out of bed thinking the shaking was from an earthquake. they felt the house and furniture rattling. when they looked outside, they saw the large oak tree down in front. >> i was using the land line to call 911. i was terrified on the phone because while i'm in the house on the phone, the tree is constantly like cracking and coming into the house. at that point i know it is not an earthquake, i know it is a tree. i'm terrified thinking that the tree is going to knock me in the head or something. come completely through the house. >> the family tried to cut down the tree 11 years ago but couldn't get a permit from the city easily because the tree is more than 100 years old. fortunately no one was hurt and the family and two dogs escaped out the back door. the house has been red tagged. so the family cannot stay here. the red cross has been helping them out. right now they're trying to find a hotel room that will allow for their family as well
as their two dogs. unfortunately they do not have family in the area. leigh martinez, ktvu fox 2 news. an effort is underway to have caltrans quickly build a new bridge now that the damaged five canyon bridge on highway 1 has been torn down. >> the bridge started collapsing after last month's rains caused the landslide and the support pillar shifted. the shutdown of highway 1 in big sur has stranded residents and kept people away from hotels, restaurants and state parks have also been cut off. some residents says that caltrans needs to prier advertise the bridge replacement over other projects or people stuck could run out of food. >> at point we are desperate not owing where the next food supply is comingfrom. there's been that. and then there's been the fact that the road is closed and there's about 400 of us stuck
in this section. >> we as a community simply will not survive in any way that is recognizable without a timely rebuilding of that bridge. >> rebuilding that bridge is expected to take at least six months, with an estimated cost of up to $30 million. you can always download our free ktvu weather app for the latest conditions out there. our weather team of course posting updates on facebook, twitter and instagram. right now supreme court nominee neil gorsuch is in our two of a ten-hour questioning session on capitol hill. he was asked this morning about judicial independence, whether he would find it difficult to rule against a president who had appointed him. >> i have no difficulty ruling against or for any party other than based on what the law and the facts and the particular case require. and i'm heartinned by the supportive -- support i have received from people who recognize that there is no such thing as a republican judge or
democratic judge. we just have judges in this country. >> joel walt man covering the confirmation hearing for us in washington, d.c. joel. >> reporter: gasia, good morning to you. that exchange was with the senate chair, senator grassily when he asked if the supreme court nominee would be judicious if something came up within the trump administration. and he said in fact like he just mentioned that the law comes before any allegiance to any political party. a short time ago, another interesting exchange. senator feinstein of the great state of california, where you guys are all at, asked the supreme court nominee if he would be, quote/unquote, for the little person. and his response is he would be for the constitution, for the law. you can expect this type of the day. ng to go on througho this is day two of the supreme court hearings with neil
gorsuch who spent ten years as a veteran on the 10th circuit court of appeals. today, each member of the senate judiciary committee, and there are 20 panel members, will each get 30 minutes to question him. if you do the math, that is ten hours. they will obviously break for lunch and take a few short breaks. expect it to be an extremely long and difficult day. and also while yesterday there were a lot of niceties floating around, the senators all got an introduction. neil gorsuch himself got an introduction. today you can expect this kind of fall on partisan lines. keep in mind that the democrats are very upset that president obama while he was in office was in essence blocked by then senate majority leader and still senate majority leader mitch mcconnell who refused to bring forward the confirmation hearing of judge garland who president obama had intended to nominate to be the next supreme
court justice. a lot of inosite on the part of the democrats. you can expect this to break down along party lines. >> has gorsuch said anything that would firm up or refute what then candidate donald trump said on the campaign trail, saying he would appoint a judge that would up hold the second amendment, be pro life and have a conservative bent. >> he was asked about gun laws and he said he would uphold the second amendment. of course this is all to fill the vacancy of antonin scalia who died last year in the winter months. that's when garland's name came up and it was blocked. now we have come to neil gorsuch. like antonin scalia who he calls a mentor, judge gorsuch is an originalist. so he goes by the letter of the law in terms of the constitution. what the constitution says. and he says he will stand by the constitution when it comes back to issues like the second
amendment, which you just mentioned, gasia. >> joel waldman in d.c. thank you. the new order starting today requires passengers on nonstop flights to the u.s. from ten airports in the middle east and north africa to pack electron devices like laptops and tablets into checked baggage. on cell phones and medical equipment will be allowed in the passenger cabin. coming up in about 20 minutes, alex savidge will have more on the new order and how flights into sfo are affected. today governor brown is meeting with california's congressional delegation. it is his first trip to washington, d.c. since president trump took office. right now california gets $15 billion from the fed rad government under the affordable care act. that helped pand coverage to many calians. it may lose the money if the
repeal and replace is approved by congress. he went to apply pressure to lawmaker who's are skeptical about the gop health care plan. some say it is too similar to the affordable care act. without the backing of at least some of the republicans the plan could fail in the house of representatives. party leaders have already made 43 pages worth of changes to the bill to address concerns. house speaker paul ryan says it made out of committee hearings and is gaining support. >> the vote in committee have already voted for it. one that didn't vote for it in the budget committee has come out in favor of it since then. >> all democrats in the house say they oppose the plan. it will come up for a full vote on thursday. taxing california millionaires. the bill proposed to allow students go to college for free. a close call for a family in a wal-mart parking lot. the search for the driver that nearly backed right over them.
it is wet. we have commute time that's are very long -- times that are very long on every major commute, including this one, the east bay and the south bay and the bridge. >> pretty good rain moving through. we will take a look at the totals. in fact there waa three-inch amount for one. and the rainontinues to move through for some. not for all but for some.
>> union city police are using surveillance video in hopes to identify a driver who backed up and hit a family of five outside of a wal-mart store. shopping cart anknocks down a 3-year-o girl and hits his mother sunday night. the mom manages to pick up the child before they could have been seriously hurt. investigators believe the driver is this woman who tried to return batteries to the store. she is wearing a sweatshirt with the batman logo on the front. she was angry when the store would not allow her to return the batteries. >> the victims were actually saying she was yelling and screaming inside her car and banging the steering wheel. in anger. >> the honda is possibly silver in color with front end damage unrelated to the incident. there may be damage to the front passenger door as well. she is white or latina 20 to 25 years old five feet tall. she could face up to five
felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon. it would impose a 1% tax on incomes over a million dollars to help pay for tuition and fees for in state students. the total cost, $2 billion. the bill's author is from stockton and says it would be tied to a constitutional amendment that would be put before voters in november. speakers urged council members to make sure that a bicycle pedestrian pathway is built. the key incentive voter as proved a sales tax hike for the service. >> 60% of the population have a bike in the garage and would really like to go to the train by bike or go to work from the train by bike or do their business and they're not comfortable on the street. they want to be on a multi use path. >> eventually the smart train
is scheduled to run from cloverdale to larkspur. the extension is expected to open in the summer of 2018. i know i got stuck behind an accident on eastbound 580 on the way to work in oakland. sal, it has been a busy morning out there. >> everywhere you look, there is slow traffic. numerous accidents in the last hour. we're having trouble keeping up here. i'll show you the main problems on the freeway. the east shore freeway has been double -- that's right double the commute time coming through here. and there's been flooding. that is one of the rain reasons after the carquinez bridge westbound getting off of the span of the bridge. then you will see a wet commute heading out to the macarthur maze. out to the bridge, it is not bad. not a lot of people are getting through. 580 is a mess from castro valley. an earlier crash there. that has been cleared. look at the east bay map. most of the traffic is ow. 680 there was an accident on
880 is slow solid from hayward down to fremont. highway 13 is slow. so almost everywhere you look the accident on the grade has been moved to the side. all of the south bay commutes are filled in. 17, 85, 87. there is no space on the map that does not have red on it. there have been a number of minor fender benders. take it easy out there and make it an easy commute. highway 101 on the peninsula is busy. and 280 in san jose there is a little bit of slow traffic. also looking like there is a new crash that just came in southbound 29 to eastbound 37 in vallejo. just a lot of flooding reported all over the place. take it easy out there. at 8:19, let's bring steve in. >> tomorrow morning will be just as tough if not tougher. thank you, sal. >> thank you. >> getting reports of some areas getting a few breaks from petaluma up to hillsberg. i know that hillsberg and pacifica both picked up an inch
and a quarter in rain. snowing plum blossoms. the comedy of the day there. greg says it is wet and gray in kelseyville. i was getting into my fishing mind-set. it was good for about a week. now it is on hold. we have a week of pretty good rain here. mount st. helena, three and a third. yes, sir. san rafael, almost an inch and a half. vallejo, an inch and a quarter. napa 1.06. sfo with about three quarters of an inch of rain. many two inch amounts in marin county and santa cruz mountains. ben loma has had heavy rain as well. interstate 80 over to american canyon, vallejo and benecia looks to be one of the areas with the most rain right now. out to highway 4 but that looks like it has moved on at least
most of it. it is heads out to rio vista and out to the valley. just a general area of rain from hercules to richmond, san ramon, oakland, san leandro and back over to southern marin county and over the bay bridge. it is leaving chinatown and along the embarcadero. you can see some of that and over to tiburon. marin county almost three inches of rain. the rain has been picking up in the santa cruz mountains south of san jose. i know there are issues around some of the -- trees and stuff, especially around ben loma, loma. what is rotating around this low. i think right there on the back side it will get enhanced on the on shore flow tonight and tomorrow. later today, especially i think sonoma county, mendocino, lake and napa county, you could get
thunderstorms developing later today as the unstable air moves in. high dew points, with the sun breaks you get a better lift. temperatures all in the 50s. it wouldn't take much this time of year. winds out of the south for almost everyone. sierra nevada it mainly has been rain. it won't turn to more snow. rain-snow mix above lake level there. is a good line moving through there. brief heavy rain and then wet snow in the higher elevations. the key is right here. it will bring in good rain for southern california late tonight and tomorrow. for us, some of the rain tapers off. bands moving through throughout the day. if we get another round of thunderstorms, they would be to the north. possibility of hail embedded in these and out to the valley as well. heavy rain tomorrow morning and tomorrow afternoon. and wind and rain, strongest system in the series will be here friday. >> thank you, steve. >> you're welcome. a tennessee teacher accused of kidnapping a 15-year-old student. why the school is already investigating this teacher and
week. there is video of cummins shopping at a wal-mart a week before the kidnapping. the two could be anywhere in the country. >> our efforts to locate her and the man believe today have kidnapped her remain active and ongoing. but to this point have produced no credible sightings. >> in january another student reported seeing cummins kissing thomas in a classroom. the teacher was suspended in fire but wasn't fired until a day after he and thomas went missing. he is believed to be armed with two happened guns and studying to be a survivalist. william schultz is accused of killing his neighbor during a sleepover in discovery bay almost two years ago. yesterday during opening statements prosecutors say that schultz told investigators he wanted it know what it was like to take a life because he believed that world war iii was
coming. he picked jordan because he wouldn't put up much of a fight. the suspect was suffering delusions and prosecutors say he knew what he was doing as he cut power to the home and put on surgical gloves. the city is telling at&t to move faster when cleaning off graffiti on the utility boxes. it must be removed within 72 hours. in many cases the tagging has stayed longer. the deputy director of the public works department sent a strongly worded letter to at&t demanding that the company ramp up the clean-up response. an at&t spokesman says the company is making immaterial prompts and stream lining its effort to address the incidents it has every year. president trump takes a swipe at colin kaepernick. when we return, the president's jab at kaepernick and the famous film director coming to his defense.
plus the brand-new electronics ban in place this morning that will affect people flying to the u.s. from certain muslim majority countries. we will explain the new restrictions coming up. it's been a bad commute. you can't really spin this. it's been slow everywhere. and on 280 in san jose, it is slow. slow on every other south bay freeway. we will have an update straight ahead.
we had a week of mild weather and now we're back into it. it is a soggy tuesday morning, march 21. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> i'm mike mibach. i remember what it was like on halloween. >> i can't remember what i had for breakfast yesterday. yours is working better than me. >> it did start raining in october. >> it was pouring rain. it is pouring rain in late march. >> it is a rain year. it might keep going. thank you, you two. we have let up for those up in the north bay. breaks up there. i think that will just fuel some thunderstorm activity later. this is from julie. this is highway 9. downed trees there. sal, hopefully you see that. we received a total of 3.85 inches of rain. i'm not surprised. i know mount st. helena has had an a third. dark clouds are looming here in
hillsberg. there are some breaks now. best line right now looks to be from fairfield and vacaville. interstate 80 heading out to the valley. after that, things are calming down. general areas of rain. nothing popping out at least so far. things are calming down for many except in the santa cruz mountains where it keeps going. and the santa clara valley, down to morgan hill and then right into santa cruz mountains, scott's valley, boulder creek and lexington that picked up an inch and a quarter. thing are calming down a little bit. the sun breaks will help as it rotates in more energy. 50sand 60s. we're on the mild side with that strong south breeze. but i think with these sun breaks if we get enough of those, that will send thunderstorm activity really popping up until this logos through which is not until wednesday. we're in line morgan hill rain. 60s on the temps today. sal, i know it is red everywhere. i have rain everywhere. but traffic -- >> that's right.
we've had incidents. chp may have trouble keeping up. there are no major problems reported here by the tunnel but it has been slow on highway 24. by the way as we see a bart train ride through. bart has no significant delays throughout the morning. i just checked with them. this is a look at the bay bridge toll plazent you can see traffic here just moderate. it is backed up for about 20 to 30 minutes. i want to look at the big problem, that would be the east bay. extremely slow traffic on 880. slower than it normally is. crashes reported on southbound 880 and northbound 880 in oakland. i don't think that's the reason. just a lot of slow traffic out there. we also have 580. a lot of people use 580 normally. this morning, it is backed up out of castro valley. people saying the heck with it, i'm going to stay on 238 and use 880. that's not a good decision right now. both freeways are slow. look at 880 the other way.
backed up to fremont. 680 slow out of pleasanton. slowing on the ultima pass. this is a look at the south bay. look at all of the red on this map. every single freeway here is slow. numerous fender benders. i cannot list them all. we would be here too long. there is 280. the moral of the story is almost every commute you have to add 15, 20, maybe half an hour. and i know that's a lot to ask for in the morning. but if you want to stay on time, leave a little earlier. laptops and tablets will not be allowed on flights from certain flights coming into the u.s. alex savidge has more on the new order from the trump administration. >> reporter: administration officials continue to have concerns about terrorist potentially hiding explosives inside of the laptops and
tablets. that's why the larger devices are banned from certain direct flights coming into the united states from specific countries in the middle east and africa. this ban will impact two flights that come direct here to sfo. the ban applies to electronic devices that are larger than a cell phone. passengers cannot bring those devices into the cabin of the plane on inbound direct flights from ten airports in eight muslim majority countries. phones and medical devices will still be allowed in the cabin on those flights. and this morning travelers here at sfo are weighing in on these new restrictions. >> i don't think it's meaningful at all. these devices have been in existence for how ny years, coming from all over the world. and how many have actually triggered an explosion anywhere
other than maybe a crowded market in istanbul or some of the countries that they're probably banning. so i don't see the impact. >> reporter: and this move comes a week after president trump's second bid to restrict travel from muslim majority nations was blocked by the courts. under the new directive, the larger electronics like the laptops and tablets and kindles will have to go into a passenger's checked bag. word came down that the united kingdom is set to implement a similar electronics ban according to a report that just came out from the bbc. the new restrictions will impact about 50 inbound flights a day coming in to the u.s. and this ban according to administration officials will remain in place indefinitely. gasia, we will send it back to you. >> thank you, alex. president trump mentioned colin kaepernick during a rally
yesterday in kentucky. kentucky. >> you know, your san francisco quarterback, i'm sure nobody ever heard of him. there was an article today, it was reported n owners don't wantto pick him up cause they don't want to get a nasty tweet from donald trump. do you believe that? >> kaepernick refused to stand during the anthem during games last season as a protest to police treatment of minorities. he has already said that he would not take a knee during the anthem this upcoming season. movie director spike lee is also talking about his friend colin kaepernick. we posted a video to instagram saying how is it that there are 32 nfl teams and he is still a free agent. it smells fishy to me. stinks to the high heavens. some say the protest is to blame others say no team wants him because he didn't play well
last year. >> the question of the day has been about this issue. why do you think that colin kaepernick hasn't been picked up by a team? his national anthem protest, talent or a little bit of both. tell us how you feel and what you think by voting on our twitter page or on ktvu.com. we are taking your comments on facebook as well. let's look at the results. of the biggest group of you 44% say a little bit of both. 25% say it's the national anthem. 22% say talent. a few say you're not sure he should be picked up. most of us only have contact with law enforcement when we're in trouble or need help but to boost community policing efforts, communities are inviting people to stop and chat with no emergency involved. >> the officers in oakland and berkeley police are hosting coffee with a cop event this morning. joining us from berkeley is officer sean from the california highway patrol. i don't know about you, officer, but after four drips of cover oh i go with double
cappaco. >> i always wanted to drin coffee on live tv. i got that out of my way. >> i'm jealous. i need a fresh cup. you're in a relaxed one on one setting there. i'm wondering, there is no topic, anybody can ask anything. does this type of setting actually work? >> yeah. this setting is perfect for what we need. we need to have community members coming and asking us the questions that they really want the answer to. most of the time people see us and they're too shy to come and talk to us. we try to get out on social media but some don't use social media. this is a way to interact with community members that can come down, they don't even have to get a cup of coffee but ask us anything. anything is on th table. >> give us an example of what you have heard this morning. >> one of the biggest questions
is carpool enforcement. we have a lot of traffic. petty theft and what to do if somebody breaks into your vehicle and takes something like a laptop out of it. the questions really run the gamut. that's why we ask our local law enforcement agencies to come out too. there might be questions specific to berkeley and oakland that i as a chp officer can't answer. we want to bring many in to get the answers that we need. >> three different agencies there at that coffee shop whom -- shop. who is asking the questions? is it the man or woman who got stopped 30 years ago at a stop sign because he or she ran it? >> it's a little bit of everybody. i think most of the people that we interact with here haven't talk today a cop for a long time. that's a good thing. they're not running into us on a regular basis. but it is an opportunity inform anybody to ask us a question. i have a feeling that the people that i spoke to this
