negative press recently with vape-related deaths and lung injuries on the rise and teenage e-cigarette use skyrocketing. juul even brought in a new c.e.o. it has spent millions of dollars trying to get prop c passed here in san francisco, but late tonight a statement from that new c.e.o. says, in part, we must zriechl to work with regulators, policy makers and other stakeholders and earn the trust of the societies in which we operate. as part of that effort juul says it will stop active support of prop c. now, prop c aimed to prevent a ban on e-cigarette sales in san francisco that goes into effect in january, but the campaign presented it as a crackdown on e-cigarette sales that will protect kids. tonight the no on c campaign says it will skeptical of juul's announcement because it says the campaign has been less than truthful. >> we've got a lot of work to do to educate voters. this can't come off the ballot. so if it's true, it's a welcome
sign. hopefully it won't be as contentious a campaign. >> reporter: so prop c will still be on the november ballot. people can still vote for or against it. we can expect those television ads for prop c and those mailers that have been paid for to stop in a few days. the no on c campaign says meone else could step in and fund the effort. election day is more than a month away. the no on c campaign says it will continue to educate voters to work to defeat that ballot measure. reporting live in san francisco, jean elle, nbc bay area news. >> it is a confusing measure, that's for sure. thank you, jean. roaring mad, a violent video has surfaced from that oakland music festival showing a hot dog vendor being attacked by the security guards hired to keep festival goers safe. tonight hispanic food vendsers say they feel threatened bid what we see in the video.
terri mcsweeney joins us live to sort it all out for us. terri. >> reporter: the fight happened just outside parking lot a at the oakland arena. the security guard going after a hispanic man who was selling hot dogs just a few feet aways, a woman, her camera rolling when he was attacked. late saturday night after the rolling loud music festival ends, a hot dog vendor is attacked by a security guard. u can hear the guard telling the man to leave, and he seems to be leaving when the guard steps up the attack. the woman who shot this video tells us she's unsure why the guard got so violent considering the vendor was leaving and not being aggressive. there is also a police officer on the scene. tonight oakland police say at this time we do not have information. we will check with investigation tomorrow morning. the attack has heightened concerns among fellow hispanic vendors. they know what a hustle it is day in, day out to be selling their goods, eking out a living,
dealing with disrespect. this vendor says that's how we make ends meet. at least here i sell candy. that's how i earn money because i have to pay rent, bills, give food to my kids. we're not doing any harm to no one. the insecurity here is getting worse, and the police aren't there, but when they do sometimes it's a bit late. the woman who shot this video says the first thing she noticed the security guard take the tray from the vendor's cart and throwing it at him and tells us she did not see what happened before that. we contacted the security company that hired that guard. it was late in the day and they did not get back to us, and we have not been able to locate that hot dog vendor. live in oakland, terri mcsweeney, nbc bay area news. >> okay, thank you, terri. new at 11:00 tonight, it is shaking in the east bay. geologists reporting a small swarm of small earthquakes in dublin. they happened neera costa boulevard near bowlinger canyon road not too far from the walmart if you know the area. the usgs reports five temblors

landlord jacked up his rent $800 a month, and really forced his hand. so he's renting the carport, a van and another space. but the man who heads up code enforcement here at city hall tells us that these are sometimes dangerous housing solutions. the ad on craigslist boasts of low rent. $400 a month for a carport with a station wagon to sleep in. stipulations, no smoking, no pets, no bathroom, and no visitors. not a workable rental solution for this young couple. >> letting people live in carports, this is not very safe. >> reporter: but an example of the reality they face as newlyweds looking for a place to call hom after they're married in december. >> married and being a young couple, thinking we could save up our entire lives. doesn't mean we're going to be able to settle down here. >> reporter: the man who posted the craigslist ad tells nbc bay area the landlord increased his
duplex rent from $1,700 to $2,500 a mow, forcing him to blease the carport, a sleeping space in a van on the property, and a room to make ends meet. >> at the same time, if it's unsafe or unlawful, then maybe he shouldn't be doing it. >> reporter: san jose's code enforcement division manager says it's a serious violation and potentially very expensive for the property owner. >> there's no weatherproofing. there's no heat. there's no sanitary facilities. no running water. so these are all inherently dangerous situations. the potenties cld involve daily fines up to $2,500 per day. >> reporter: and ahead of code enforcement tells us for now the city is letting this carport rental stand because so far nobody has filed a complaint. and until somebody files a complaint, it can't open an investigation or issue any citations. we're live in san jose, thom jensen, nbc bay area news. >> that is a steep fine.

about it. i am looking at two different upward level disturbances. and the best thing about this is they're both going to keep hot 100s away. now, i don't have any big rainfall chances with this, but i did think it was certainly note worthy here to let you know the rain season does officially start tomorrow. that's when our weather calendar for rainfall begins at zero then we'll begin to tally it up from there. october usually is when we see rainfall pick up. in concourd, for example, we average 187 for the month. i see showers by october the 10th to 15th moving into northern california. nothing big for the bay area just yet, but we will of course keep a close eye on it. i want you to stay closely fixed on this morning temperatures, though. i do not want you caught off guard. look how chilly it's going to be in the tri-valley. 48 for the average, peninsula 51 and south bay at 49. notice those mostly clear skies. also 48 here for the north bay. upper 40s in san francisco. and the east bay as well.
so have that jacket ready and you'll be ready to go as you head off on that commute and get those kids off to school as well. temperatures tomorrow, they're going to warm up a little bit here. but overall i think a beautiful fall day coming on in. 72 in san jose. 71 los gatos, 74 in gilroy. right over to the east bay closer to the water, 69 here in oath. and back to livermore not that bad. 74 degrees. heading to the beaches, 62, chilly in half moon bay. redwood city 72. san francisco, it's jacket for the morning. jacket for the afternoon. we're in the 60s here from the embarcadero down to the ingles side. and through santa rosa, sonoma and napa, low to maid 70s with sunshine. there is warming moving in, but as i mention no 100s in the forecast. this means in san francisco we're focusing in on that warming for saturday and sunday. mid 70s will return and we'll
start to drop back off once we hit next monday. for inland valleys i have you at 76 tomorrow. notice the weekend up to 87 saturday and 88 on sunday. so, yes, hotter, but i still think we can handle this just fine. really, though, these morning-time temperatures, comfortable weather might have you thinking about fall. and i wanted to give you a look at the fall foliage and where things are beginning to turn. notice yosemite, we have some patchy to near peak colors beginning on those leaves. so if you're planning a road trip, that's where you want to head. otherwise most of california is just starting to begin to change. i don't know about you, jess. this weather has got me all wrapped up into fall. i did the pumpkin spice latte as i mentioned earlier. >> ooh, yummy. i started to have pumpkin coffee in the morning. i'm ready. >> yes, me, too. >> time to get some pumpkin. thank you, jeff. >> sure. >> coming up, a new alert about a popular heart medication will no longer be sold at some big

bad. 76 degrees. eventually this weekend we go back up into the upper 80s. i think there's no chance of 100s right now, so that is the good news. san francisco 66 for the high tomorrow. and then you've got some mid 70s this weekend. what about the sierra, right? >> snow. >> popular. >> crazy. >> we had snow this weekend. anywhere from 2 to about 4 inches on average. no snow chances coming our way, but you've got some chilly temperatures at least through about thursday. and then this weekend some 60s, moving on in. >> it's about time. >> i know. it's october tomorrow. >> exactly, exactly. all right. that's going to do it for us. we'll see you tomorrow. bye-bye.
