welcome back to mornings on 2 . the white house said president trump has no immediate plans to visit california to see the devastation caused by the fires.
6:10 am
the president tweeted about the wildfires for the first time yesterday saying our hearts are with all affected by the wildfires in california and thinking the first responders and fema. the president did go to houston and puerto rico after the hurricanes. a florida congresswoman who said president trump made an insensitive phone call to the widow of a soldier is now calling for an investigation into the circumstances of the soldiers's death. congresswoman frederica wilson said she was in the car with the widow of army sergeant la david johnson on tuesday. they were on their way to the miami airport to meet his coffin . the congresswoman said president trump told johnson's wife "he knew what he was signing up for. " the president denies her account of the phone call. >> i did not say what the congresswoman said. i did not say it at all. she knows it and she now is not saying it. i did not say what she said.
6:11 am
and i'd like her to make the statement again. >> congresswoman wilson also said johnson's family has questions about his death. he was killed with three other soldiers in niger by isis linked militants in an ambush during an anti-terror operation. >> why were they not protected? how are they able to be able to overrun by terrorist? they are there to train the army. they did not go there to fight. this is mr. trump's benghazi and all of this about the widow is just a cover-up. >> congresswoman wilson is pushing for an investigation into the ambush but there is no word from the pentagon on when or if that will happen. president trump is pushing congress to act on tax reform. the president is meeting with members of congress looking for support on his tax reform plan. most republicans are on board
6:12 am
but it's going to be hard to win support from democrats. >> the tax relief needs to be about delivering tax cuts to middle income families in this country. >> today the senate will vote on a budget resolution that if passed would allow republicans to pass tax reform legislation without the democrats. let's check in with sal for a look at traffic. we do have a look at the freeways in the east bay. this is the busiest time of the morning for 80. if you are driving out to the macarthur maze, for example. 27 minute drives -- a 27 minute drive between the carquinez bridge and the maze which is pretty good. later in the morning i suspect this will double. it does not look great right now but it is sure to go up. this is a look at the bay bridge. traffic is crowded. we are not having a light day
6:13 am
but at the least we do not have any major problems on major freeways. if you're trying to get to san francisco, northbound and southbound 101 look pretty good. there have been no major issues. on the san mateo bridge, traffic is going to be okay getting out to the high rise. this is a look at interstate 880 in oakland. it is looking good but southbound 880 is beginning to slow from 238 into union city. our weather has changed. that's a good thing. the timing on the rain looks to be later than sooner but there is drizzle in many locations and also some cloudy skies. that low cloud deck has made a july push. cloudy with rain later tonight. the winds will pick up from the south. 64 at kickoff. 62 after 7:00.
6:14 am
cooler today. san jose, 73 yesterday, 68 today. the same thing for palo alto. today, 70 in concord. cloud cover is in place and so is the breeze. morning drizzle will give way to evening rain and overnight rain for some, especially for the south. gusts up to 44 at the altamont pass. 32 in suisun city. black diamond, 1600 feet, 26 miles per hour. mount tam, 24. look at the low cloud deck. that's the best we seen a long time. the system is getting closer and a so far holding together. cold air support is coming in on the backside. that will sweep through tomorrow morning which will improve air quality. the models are advertising decent rain. certainly north. a third to a half inch for some. not as much to the south.
6:15 am
40s for the temperatures in the santa cruz mountains. boulder creek, the humidity is up at 88%. there is more of a westerly or southerly breeze. they do not want any strong wind at all but they will take the low cloud deck, high humidity and cooler temperatures. 50s for the temperatures. we have a west wind or southerly breeze in advance of the front. that will ramp up as the system gets closer. it's quiet and clear in the sierra but they will have increasing the wind and by tonight, a winter weather advisory kicks in at 11 pm until 11 am on friday. 3-6 inches of snow around 6500 feet. gusts around 60 and some of the passes before that. here's that system. it will eventually get here.
6:16 am
let's hope it holds together to give us some rain. upper 60s and low 70s for some today. some areas on the coast could have a mild day but tomorrow the system will go through at the northwest wind kicks in. the air quality improves, it cools off. it will be warmer on sunday and monday. >> for the game tonight? >> maybe some rain during the second half. light rain. >> be prepared. take a jacket. lowering the bar for future lawyers. the reason passing exams will not get any easier in california. >> i got a call around 2 am. basically saying there was a fire encroaching on the hospital. we may have to evacuate. >> he is a hero. he is emerging from the flames. we will tell you how that doctors saved several babies as
6:17 am
flames were threatening a hospital in santa rosa.

6:21 am
burning in steep, inaccessible terrain. part of the reason the aerial support is so critical is because of this terrain. yesterday water drops had to be suspended after someone flew a drone into the area. fire crews did not want to damage their aircraft or hit the drone and cause a spark and maybe a new fire. air operations stopped for about an hour. >> the wind started picking up about the same time operations were canceled. anytime there's wind, fire has the potential to spread. we use those helicopters to stop the spread of the fire. >> reporter: fire crews work through the night to shore up lines and increase containment. santa cruz county sheriff is confirming they arrested a boulder creek man accused of looting $15,000 worth of jewelry from inside the evacuation zone. at this point we are waiting
6:22 am
for son of. we are hoping they can begin that aerial survey as they have done in days past to get a sense of how this fire has developed overnight and what their plan of attack will be for the day. we are expecting a firefighter briefing around 7:00. in this picture you can see fire crews are moving and there's a lot of activity underway at the ben loman conservation camp. as you can imagine, a lot of back to midi and anticipation for the day. we expect to learn more at that firefighter briefing and will have more information at that point. i'm having some trouble with my earpiece so i don't think i will be able to hear you if you ask me anything. i will just end this here. >> he will update that story throughout the morning. in other news, the national rifle association has launched a new and controversial insurance program. it is for people who shoot
6:23 am
someone. the nra's insurance called, carry guard, will offer coverage for civil and costs associated with self-defense shootings. gun-control advocates say the insurance could foster more violence and give gun owners a false sense of security to shoot first and ask questions later. they are urging the insurance companies that back to policies to drop out. a jury was chosen yesterday in the trial of the undocumented immigrant charged in the deadly shooting of kate steinle in san francisco two years ago. six men and six women, three of whom are immigrants, will decide the fate of jose ines garcia-zarate with opening arguments scheduled for monday. the 54-year-old has pled not guilty to second-degree murder and said he found the gun and it went off accidentally. garcia-zarate has been deported five times and was facing deportation when the shooting occurred. the family of a 13-year-old boy from oakland held a vigil last night. they are looking for answers
6:24 am
about why he was shot and killed. police say eighth grader, anibal andres ramirez , received a text message last tuesday evening around 9:51 pm to meet a friend on seminary avenue in east oakland. his body was found on a bench in the same area. he had been shot several times and was pronounced dead at the scene. this former teacher said no one understands why this happened. >> i think everyone is in shock. he was young and very quiet. he was a good kid. i don't think anybody expected this to happen. it's unreal. even if he was out here drinking a coffee, it would not matter. why are we hurting each other? we are all minorities, most of us. why is that okay? >> ramirez and his family are from guatemala and have been in the country for about a year. the vigil was also a fundraiser for the family. oakland police say ramirez is the youngest homicide victim so far this year and there's no
6:25 am
word yet about a suspect. uc berkeley police are investigating a sexual assault in a campus dorm room. according to police the victim said she was assaulted saturday at a cal residence hall on durant avenue. police say they victim at the male suspect at a fraternity party. investigators are looking for witnesses. so far they do not have a description of the alleged attacker. the fbi's nationwide sting of sex traffickers led to 120 arrests across the country including several in the bay area. the sweep started a week ago in the bay area. four pimps were arrested or cited. 12 men were cited or arrested for soliciting prostitutes and police rescued two victims of sex trafficking including a 17-year-old. the fbi said this victims are getting help from its victims services program and other agencies. california's bar exam for future lawyers is notoriously
6:26 am
very hard and will stay that way for now. only 43% of the people who took the exam in july 2016 were able to pass. that is the lowest rate in 32 years and it's also lower than the success rates in other states. potential lawyers have complained about it but the state supreme court said yesterday that the downward trend appeared to be part of a broader, national pattern and there is no need to lower the standards. the court said it may change the passing standard in the future but for now the bar should analyze the exam itself to see whether changes are needed. 6:26 am. less red tape for fire victims. coming up, what the governor is doing to get assistance to the people who need it the most. >> reporter: this is a day focused on disaster preparedness. in a few hours millions across california will drop, cover and hold on, taking part in the great california shakeout. we are live on the google

6:40 am
this is a realistic earthquake simulator. i'm here with janet ruiz with the insurance information institute. thank you for being with me. what do people need to remember today when the shaking starts? >> the important thing you need to do is drop, cover your head and hold on. >> there you go. >> reporter: okay. and i think the shaking has stopped. >> it is. now we look around and make sure it's safe to get up. >> reporter: how do i know it's safe to start moving around? if i'm in my home or in my bed and this happens in the middle of the night? >> if we had tvs are glass fall, we will not -- we would want to make sure we did not get cut. we did have some plastic glasses. if these were glass, they could have broken. that's why we covered all our
6:41 am
extremities to make sure we did not get cut or hurt. >> reporter: that was a 7.0. that was a pretty good shake. and like real earthquakes, obviously there is no warning ahead of time. you don't know when that will hits. that is the point of today. 10 million people across our state will take part in this disaster preparedness drill. one important thing is to make sure you have an emergency kit ready. talk about some of the things people should have in that kit and the most important things to have? >> the most important thing in the kit -- you want your emergency drinking water, a light stick, you may need a poncho if there is bad weather. we have matches and a flashlight. these are ones that are solar and chargeable. >> reporter: today, people are going to do what we just did.
6:42 am
drop, cover and hold on across the state. at schools and businesses and universities and people at home can also take part. this happens at 10:19 am. everyone across the state will take part in the shakeout. they will get under their desks or dropped to the floor, cover and hold on. to me. we've had some wildfires in our state. many disasters unfolding in the north bay beyond earthquakes. part of the message is preparing for any disaster and being ready to go at a moments notice. >> it really is. you need to prepare and plan and practice. it's not intuitive when a disaster strikes. when you find out there is wildfire coming down your street or when you find out you are shaking and you need to drop, cover and hold on. you need to have practiced that ahead of time. it's going to be easier.
6:43 am
your intuition is to run in an earthquake but you really want to drop. dropping is important. >> reporter: thank you very much. again, we are here this morning on the campus of google and mountain view were all the employees are going to be dropping, covering and holding on at are going to be dropping, covering and holding on at 10:19 am. back to you guys. >> it's always a great thing to practice and be prepared. one thing i am reminded of this week, have your gas tank full. >> good advice. >> do not leave an empty. a warning for students at stamford coming up at 7:00. the reason you may want to watch what you leave inside your car when you park on or near campus. next, a health risk hiding in the debris of burned out homes. what fire victims need to know before you clean up. and what's happening later today.
6:44 am
also it's game day. how the raiders hope to break a losing streak tonight.
6:45 am
6:46 am
welcome back. many fire victims and the north bay are starting to dig through the ashes of their homes. that can pose a health risk. >> on the phone with us is scott alonso from the sonoma department of health services. good morning. >> good morning. >> what could be out and that
6:47 am
debris? >> well, there could be quite a few things. asbestos is one of our top concerns. there could also be cleaning materials from households, electronics like a tv or refrigerators. large-scale appliances. all those items can contain toxic materials, especially if they've been burned and you're trying to touch them or remove them yourself without the proper equipment or expertise. they can release toxins into the air. it could harm you, your children and your family. we are encouraging folks to not remove the toxic ash and not remove the debris unless it's in small amounts. if there is a large amount of debris when you come home and you've suffered fire damage, you need to work with us. we are here to help you. we have a state cleanup plan and licensed contractors coming in to help us with this
6:48 am
recovery process. >> i know we've talked about jeopardizing your fema assistance as well going through some of that stuff. i'm sure it's overwhelming, there are so many people affected but i can only imagine people really wanting to look through to see if there's anything left they can salvage, any personal mementos or jewelry -- other people helping them with gloves and masks so they can do some of that? >> we would encourage folks if they do plan to do that to do it safely. one folks are reentering evacuation areas, depending on what type of law enforcement checkpoint they are going through, they will be given a mask. they need to wear proper safety equipment. there is a risk if they decide to sift through that ash on their own. we want folks to be aware of that. we want folks to recover. we want folks to get back to their homes but we want people to be safe and we want public health to be protect did.
6:49 am
with our partners at the state and federal levels, we can work together to accomplish that. it will take some time but we are encouraging folks. we have two community meetings today. one at 1:00 in sonoma and 6:00 in santa rosa to learn more about debris removal efforts. we will have representatives from state, federal and local agencies to walk them through this process. >> a very important meeting. thank you. there will be contractors and so many things involved in all of this. scott aloma -- scott alonso. thank you for joining us. let's check in and see what's coming in on the next hour. good morning. coming up, a look into what happens to the mind after the body shows no signs of life. what researchers found after studying people who suffered cardiac arrest. technically they died but were later revived. what they found about their awareness about events that was
6:50 am
verified by the medical and nursing staff present at the time. we are 12 days from halloween. pam and dave, our dining room table is a mess of cardboard, glue guns and construction paper as we craft the perfect costumes. if you would rather not do that, we will share a list of the top searched halloween costumes this year including the top searched costume here in the bay area. the stories and more. i will see you in a few minutes. >> you make your customs, right? >> absolutely not. my husband makes all the costumes and always has. >> the more i learned about your husband, the more i love him. >> the cloning experiment has not worked yet but when it does -- i will pass that on. let's check in with sal. there must be some costume preparation going on at your
6:51 am
