7:18 am
us. up in the sierra, yes, a winter weather advisory was issued in sacramento. i tweeted them and i said when is the last time that you issued a winter weather advisory before the first day of fall. i haven't heard back from them. it is not that we can't get snow but a winter weather advisory is unusual. it goes until 11:00 p.m. already snow up there. snow up to truckee so far. the amounts will be light. around 6,000, 6500-foot level. and then above 7,000, you could get isolated three to six inch amounts. you can see why. the system is dropping out of the gulf of alaska, pacific northwest. it is rotating and in and won't bottom out until the noon hour. that is setting the stage for a nice day visibility-wise but cool and breezy. this goes all the way down to southern california. light snow at yosemite.
7:19 am
temperatures to the east, 46 blackhawk. 47 lafayette. 48 moraga. 48 he48 el sobrante. it is not very warm as the system carves itself out. 70s or upper 60s. well above average. the only reason that is santa rosa is a north wind. if they didn't have that, i would say cooler than that. gradual warming into the weekend. >> look at the weekend. a 5-year-old boy from modesto suspended for making terroristic threats what he told his teachers and what his parents have to say about it. how much have you spent on air travel? not just tickets. all of the extra airline fees. we will tell you what is behind a recent spike.
7:20 am
7:21 am
7:22 am
>> welcome back to mornings on 2. it is now 7:22. now we're getting a firsthand look at the quake damage in mexico city. >> gigi is live in mexico city where a rescue attempt is happening. gigi. gigi. >> reporter: this is a very crucial moment because -- i hope you can hear me. they have asked for silence because they are trying to detect any sign of life from the person they are searching for. we are in the -- this is a very popular area with tourists and
7:23 am
visitors from the united states. restaurant row. it is here that they are searching for eric garnica. he worked at the laboratory. he was in his office when the quake hit. now, they have managed to make a tunnel to his office where they were able to insert a camera. they believe he is in that general area. they have not heard from him in several hours. now, you may be able to make out a firefighter with a black helmet. that is roberta padillo from the sacramento fire department. he is volunteering on his own time. he created a gofundme account to pay for the ticket here. some of his family was missing. they have since been found. he will be volunteering here. he is a search and rescue
7:24 am
specialist. you can see him up there. the building has already collapsed and in further of further collapse. what you are looking at live is extremely dangerous. inside the rubble, there are rescuers underneath the piles of mangled metal and concrete right now. so this is a life or death situation. not only for the man who is trapped inside, but also for the rescuers. now, you are looking live at all of the volunteers walking -- there has been a huge response coming. and you've got -- we're looking around. there is an ambulance off to the left, waiting on stand by, hoping to be able to transporter i can alive and well to the hospital. everyone of course praying for this. his family is here. okay. they have released it. we can speak a little longer. they are continuing to work on the pile. it hasn't been 48 hours since
7:25 am
the earthquake. the cutoff is 72 hours. that's how long they believe someone could survive being buried alive. you can imagine, this is very tense, very emotional and dangerous. hard to watch knowing that there is somebody buried alive under there. everyone is praying that he is still alive. okay. they're asking for silence again. in mexico, because there are so many rescuers from other countries, including california, china, switzerland, japan that they use the international symbol. they raise their arms in the air and make a fist. that means silence. when they put that fist up, nobody is supposed to talk or move, except a rescuer so they can detect the sign of life. that is the latest from mexico city. this is one of many areas. i believe you may have my
7:26 am
interview with roberto from sacramento. i spoke with him before he went up there. >> i plan to be here for four or five days. we work long hours back in the states as a firefighter. i can work two or three days, 24 hours a day. that's what we do. so this is -- i'm used to this kind of work. this is different. this is home. >> reporter: and i can tell you that roberto was fighting back tears when i spoke with him. he was fighting back tears. of course he has seen his share of disaster and de struck. but this his hometown. you are looking at him live working on the pile. dangerous work. he was fighting back tears. i asked him what brought you here? what made you want to use your vacation time to be here? and he said this is my hometown. and the tears welled up in his eyes. he and said you got the best of me. it was emotional for him.
7:27 am
it was more emotional when he saw the devastation. the earthquake has left a trail of death and devastation. the death toll exceeding 250 people. this is only one rescue site. to the south of the city, there is the school. that is where a little girl is trapped alive. yesterday we were there when they actually made contact with her. it was a very emotional moment. they had a bad rainstorm overnight. that has hampered efforts. these people have not stopped. we have seen thousands and thousands of volunteers come out to try to help the rescuers. they are professional men and women from the army, navy, from the police agencies throughout the country of mexico. of course we have our own brave heroes from the united states out here working. you are working at one of many firefighters and search and rescue people here live giving it all -- giving it their all to save the life of someone
7:28 am
they don't even know. it has been an amazing effort to watch. >> gigi, i imagine people that can't work in the pile are doing what they can to help those who are doing the work. >> reporter: you know, i have seen men and women from all walks of life. we're talking about high school and college students, senior citizens. yesterday there were people wearing motorcycle helmets showing up at the different rescue sites, wearing bicycle helmets to be able to volunteer. the need is so great that the government just can't get to all of the different places where there are collapsed buildings. these volunteers have been on the pile. what you are looking at live, these are professional men and women up there right now. but the area is surrounded with folks like you and me who want to lend a helping hand. the volunteer event has been so overwhelming that they asked volunteers to stop coming and stop bringing food because they
7:29 am
can't handle all of the donations and the food for the other rescuers. now, you are looking live -- and i want to point this out. you are looking at heavy equipment there. the work being done is being done mainly by hand. we have seen bucket brigade. because when you bring in the heavy equipment, it puts the building at risk for further collapse. of course they don't want to see that. most of this work is pain stakingly very meticulous and very slow and done by hand. removing each piece of concrete, any of the rubble all by hand to try to get to the trapped people. and they have very sophisticated equipment. mexico city is actually recognized for their search and rescue teams. they travel the world lecturing for other teams. they are known as the moles or goers because they can get into tight, constricted places. these are professionals. other search and rescue
7:30 am
volunteers like padillo from sacramento are also here lending a hand. >> is life carrying on as normal? are stores back open, are kids back in school or is the entire city at a stand still? >> well, today, some schools will reopen. it depends what part of town you're in. this is a popular area. i'm sure people in your audience if they have travel today mexico city, they probably came to these areas. popular with tourists. lots of good restaurants here, night life. this is one of the most affected areas. this kind of earthquake kind of hopped, skipped and jumped. one building collapsed in one part of town and then in another part of town, it was hard hit. so this entire zone is completely paralyzed. you can't get through. we walked almost a mile to get
7:31 am
to this rescue area on foot because the streets are closed to everybody except for rescue trucks. it just depends what part of town you're in. this pa effort is a ghost town. it is evacuated. there is no electricity or power. i can actually wearing a hard hat. they made me wear one today because a lot of the buildings surrounded are in danger of collapsing. >> are these rescuers working around the clock? are they working 8-hour shifts in how is it working? >> reporter: no eight-hour shifts here for the weary. they are working 12, 16, 20, 24 hours. i have spoken -- and i want to just point out, you're looking live at the guy with the -- the hard hat with a light on it. he is under the rubble. that is only one of them. there are several of them under. you can see him coming out a little bit and talking to the other rescue workers. they have created some kind of a tunnel, a space. it is not really a tunnel.
7:32 am
it is just a space that allows them to get under that rubble. look how dangerous that is right now. just a short while ago before we went on live, one of the leaders of this rescue, one of the supervisors, this is being lead by the army and navy. they wanted the men off of the pile because it was simply too dangerous. they were seeing rubble collapsing. they were fearing that was going to collapse. the men up there begged them of course in spanish begged them to give them ten more minutes and let them stay up there. apparently they secured whatever area they thought was going to collapse and they let them stay up there more than ten minutes. that was an emotional moment when they want today call them off and the guys said no, please. [speaking spanish] ten more minutes please to try to save this man. >> gi gi in mexico city taking us right there with and you your camera. thank you for the update from
7:33 am
mexico city. we will bring you more details later. we were right there. the time is 7:33. we will be checking weather and traffic for you coming up. stay with us. plus, we're counting down to kickoff here at levi's stadium. the 49ers hosting the l.a. rams in prime time. the niners looking for the first win of the season. coming up, we will tell you how busy it is around the stadium and how cheap it is to get tickets to the game. ♪
7:34 am
7:35 am
hey grandpa. hey, kid. really good to see you. you too. you tell grandma you were going fishing again? maybe. (vo) the best things in life keep going. that's why i got a subaru, too. introducing the all-new crosstrek. love is out there. find it in a subaru crosstrek.
7:36 am
>> the time is 7:36. very busy thursday morning. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> and i'm dave clark. steve paulson knows the forecast but he is also watching his private plane about to take off. >> they washed it for me, dave. >> yep. >> are we going to san jose? maybe we are. we are focusing on san jose. i think that is hawaiian air. are you sure about that. >> it goes without us. >> i know. the nerve. all right. it will be a nice day. it will not be hot. it will not be hot. 70 is the forecast high. that temp is going to drop quick. usually it's like it's going to be 95, i'm going to bake. not tonight. dare i say it might be on the cool side. system has moved through. it is holding together in the
7:37 am
central nevada and the san joaquin valley. gold star. i'm impressed. good snow activity has begun. not bad but made it down to 6,000 feet. the winter advisory is out until 11:00 tonight. not too bad. this cold air continues to drop in from the north. this will be the coolest day by far for a while. you know we will start warming up. but not that holt. take a look at that. even if you're traveling down to l.a., you might encounter precip. there. 40s and 50s on the temps. the coolest that we have seen in a while. temperatures well below average as you might imagine. under mostly sunny skies. 60s and 70s. some locations down by 10 degrees. sal, 7:37. >> and we do have slow traffic. a couple of incidents, steve, have made it very slow on northbound 101 in mountain view, getting up to menlo park and redwood city. an accident that was blocking three lanes, they have managed to open up a few more.
7:38 am
the sig alert is issued. slow in the south bay. we also have to go to the east bay because we have a crash southbound 680 now. i want to mention it. southbound 680 as you approach laverner road. traffic will be slow heading south. i believe we have a look at all of the slow traffic here. look at this getting out of walnut creek and heading south into danville. not recommending it right now because of all of this. in fact the crash is reported closer to stone valley road. that is a long way for you to be stuck in traffic. it will also make for slow traffic coming out of the concord area. bay bridge backed up all the way out to the maze. slower than normal because of an earlier stalled bus. they moved it to the shoulder but it is still very slow. 7:38. let's go back to the desk. football fans from beyond the area and beyond will go to levi's stadium today for a thursday night matchup against
7:39 am
the l.a. rams. >> talk about how busy the area may be leading up to the game, alex. >> reporter: good morning to both you. you can expect a slow commute all around the south bay, especially here around levi's stadium. we have kickoff at 5:25. we will kick this thing off in the heart of rush hour. as you can imagine, you will have football fans converging on the stadium much earlier than that to do tailgating here. the parking lots will be packed. a lot of roads in the area will be shut down as well ahead of the game. the 49ers hosting the l.a. rams here in prime time. and the niners still looking for the first win of the season. it is early, right. they dropped the first two games of the year so far. unfortunately they have lost eight straight regular season games here at home. but they have played very well against the rams. they have won the last three matchups with the rams. this is also a homecoming of
7:40 am
sorts for rams quarterback jared goth who was a star at cal and went to high school in novato before being taken as the number one overall pick in the nfl draft. the niners coming into tonight's game after getting just three days of rest. a short turn around after their loss on sunday. still faithful fans are hopeful about this season. >> everybody has to buy into the program, buy into the coaching staff and do what they have to do. realistically we know it won't be that good of a year but we will still support them. we're faithful. >> reporter: if you want to be on hand for tonight's matchup getting into levi's stadium, well, it is pretty cheap actually. we found tickets on stub hub for tonight's game in the upper deck going for $18 each. of course that is the silver lining when your team is sort of struggling out of the gate. a little more affordable to come down to the game. so tickets still are available online. and it was to bring you back
7:41 am
out here to a live picture. the parking lots around levi's stadium will be opening just before 2:00 this afternoon so that, dave and gasia, you can come down here and do all of your tailgating and barbecuing. bare in mind that the traffic will be heavy starting early in the afternoon as they close down some of the streets in the area and fans start to arrive for the 5:25 kimoff here at levi's stadium. >> it looks like a nice day there in santa clara weather- wise. >> reporter: a brisk start to the morning as steve has alluded to. sort of fall in the air. now that the sun is coming up, we are warming up quite nicely. i heard steve mention it a couple of time and it bares repeating. by the time you're in the midst of the game tonight, the sun will be going down. if you're in the upper decks, it could get chilly. i would bring along a sweater or light jacket.
7:42 am
>> all right. alex savidge. thank you. >> viewership for the first game of the season was down 12%. do you plan on watching the game between the 49ers and the rams? yes or no? let us know by voting on twitter and leave us comments on facebook. all right. the time is 7:42. forget about the price of airfare. wait until you hear how much we're paying for the extra fees like checked bags. >> i hate those extras. i know. >> tesla is continuing the quest for self-driving cars. pam cook is back with this morning's money business. >> tesla is working with amd to create the intelligence chip for self-driving cars. the stock up on that news. rinaing the opening bell another ipo. an online travel booking company out of south america. celebrating that ipo. and taking a look at the markets. leading economic indicators coming in this morning higher than expected for august. good news on the economy. but the numbers across the board are down a bit this
7:43 am
