tv Mornings on 2 FOX December 9, 2014 7:00am-9:01am PST
>> reporter: we're live in berkeley, following another night of protests that shut down a freeway and amtrak lines. what some people are saying about these tactics and whether or not they distract from the message. a fire early this morning at an infamous san jose homeless camp. what is expected to happen just minutes from right now that has officials believing this blaze was no accident. well, we do have some drizzle, light rain and fog out there. but it's all quiet before the system arrives. that system will be here on thursday for what looks to be the strongest storm we've had in a long time. >> reporter: ahead of the major
rain storm, many people from the north bay to the south bay are getting ready. what you need to know as "mornings on 2" starts now. good morning. we are live in berkeley, once again, where trains are moving this morning, but it was a much different scene last night. protesters successfully shut down amtrak service by blocking the tracks last night and commuters were not the only ones impacted. protesters also, once again, took over a freeway. this time it was interstate 80 in emeryville and this morning, ktvu's katie utehs is talking with people who see what they think about the protests. good morning. welcome to "mornings on 2." it's tuesday, december 9th. i'm pam cook in for tori campbell. >> i'm dave clark. we want to talk about your blfer -- weather and traffic.
how does it look now? >> this is the quiet before the storm. we still have two days to go. a beautiful sunrise. reds. sky. evelyn from campbell tweeted me out that. i do understand. but again, we're two days away. heavy rainfall started. this will start late wednesday more likely early, early thursday. there could be very intense rainfall. wind advisories are already out, flooding, downed trees power lines, christmas decoration, it all looks like it's taking shape. some of the rainfall could top some 8-inch totals as we head between now and into friday. today is just very light. might be a little more, might be less. there will be rain up on the north coast. there's been some drizzle even from san francisco to marin county and sonoma county. misty, drizzly, very light rain. foggy as well, especially on treat boulevard out by concord,
buchanan. mostly cloudy, mild, mild temperatures. we're in the low 60s. look for a cloudy to mostly cloudy day. 60 at sfo. 59 san francisco, half moon bay. our system will give us a lot of cloud cover today. mild temps. our system developing does have some cold air with it. that's different from all of the other systems. they've been very mild. but look at the projections on rainfall. they are just going through the roof here. that will be thursday into friday. there will be some isolated areas, i think, between 8 to 10 inches. santa cruz mountains, russian river as well. cloudy and mild. patchy fog. 60s and also 70s. a lot of reports. east bay has very foggy conditions. it was foggy in concord and walnut creek and also pittsburg and baypoint, antioch. we had problems there which may have been associated with that. but first let's go to the eastshore freeway and talk about 80 westbound. it's pretty heavy from the car keen niz bridge -- carquinez
bridge to the macarthur maze. the fog is not an issue here. one of the slowest commutes, livermore valley. people who drive this say what else is new? it's backed up out of tracy, as you drive into fremont. we talked about highway 4, we had an earlier crash. that traffic is gone. but the traffic is still slow. for the third night in a row, a big crowd of protesters surged through berkeley. people protested last night. around 8:30, they marched onto 880 near ashby avenue and stopped traffic for at least 90 minutes. more than 150 people were arrested in all of this. amtrak service was also stopped as protesters laid down on the tracks and climbed on top of the trains. katie utehs is at the amtrak train on university avenue.
train service resumed this morning. but katie, some people are questioning the track tick -- tactics of the protest in spreading their message. >> reporter: the issue at hand, emotional, contentious and should be discussed. some are saying the tactics are more distracts from the message than anything else. in all three nights we've seen people take to the freeways to shut it down. this morning amtrak is running as protesters laid down on the train tracks. let me show you some video from the freeway last night. a view from newschopper2 as protesters took over interstate 80. at the peak, 1,000 strong. we're hearing from people who are impressed by the dramatic protests. others are irritated by the inconvenience and some question the effectiveness. >> i don't think they are harming anything. but i don't know if they are helping anything.
>> reporter: some people are trying to avoid the protests altogether. we spoke with a man who commutes from his job at lawrence livermore labs from his home in sacramento. they received a heads up ahead of the protests. >> i'm gonna probably leave early, you know, before sunset to avoid this. >> reporter: the protesters shut town amtrak service by blocking trains from moving. this is video of a woman with her face covered. she climbed onto the front of a train. service was suspended at university avenue station around 11:00 last night. reopened a little before 4:00 this morning. people are certainly talking about these protests, both online in the national media and at our local coffee shops. but again, the question is are people focusing more on the tactics being disruptive or the message that the protesters are trying to convey. dave? >> katie utehs, thank you. on our ktvu facebook page, we are asking what you think
about the protests. do you sympathize or are you tired of it? i want to show you some of the responses we've received this morning, one says we have the right to freedom of speech. though i dry the line at looting, breaking story windows and stopping traffic on freeways. stopping trains. with all of this happening, nothing is getting resolved. jessica writes, they are causing more harm than good. innocent people are being caught in the middle who did nothing to deserve it. they are destroying neighborhoods, how is that proving any point? and sheila wright says, mlk did it the right way. these protesters all need a history lesson in the civil rights movement. you can join our conversation by going to our ktvu facebook page and tell us what you think about the demonstrations. let us know if you are one of the people stuck in traffic during last night's freeway shutdown or on the train. we would like to hear from you. >> all right, pam. 7:07. all lanes of interstate 680 in san jose. they are back open again this
morning after being shut down for almost 11 hours. look at the pictures. the chp shut down all lanes in both directions. this was start -- started at 2:00 yesterday afternoon. a woman threatened to jump from the alum rock avenue overpass. the highway patrol had all of the lanes back open just before 1:00 this morning but it's still not clear how this situation with the suicidal woman was resolved. as steve has been telling us all, a storm headed our way in the next couple of days will be a big one which is why many emergency responders are telling everyone to get ready now. ktvu's brian flores, you are in san rafael. they are preparing out there at this moment, brian. >> reporter: i am, dave. so are several other people in marin county. as you know. marin county certainly gets pounded during any major rain storm. that's gonna be the case in the next couple of days. as steve said, it will be a widespread storm. we're live in one of several
locations throughout marin where people can come by, get sandbags to help stop flooding. this one off union and flood next to the whole foods. as you can see, with the amount of sand left which is not much. it looks like people have heeded the advisory and are getting ready for the upcoming storm. forecasters say the amount of rain that is expected to tall will be quite a bit. steve mentioned up to 3 inches possibly in urban areas up to 8 inches in the mountain areas which is why the national weather service has issued a storm advisory. we have seen city work crews to downtown clearing out drains. we did speak 0 to some in oakland who are getting ready. >> you want to always be prepared. emergency preparedness, you always want to be ready because of earthquakes, water, et cetera. no one is gonna do it for you except for yourself. >> you have heavy rains probably three years ago. it did damage some stuff in my
garage. this time i like to be prepared. >> reporter: while some may joke about how this is just rain, emergency responders say this is not a laughing matter. they are telling people to be prepared for possible floods, possible mudslides and likely power outages. some hardware stores from last week when we went up there say they are selling quickly, many of the essential supplies like tarp, rain boots, flashlights and battery. this is one of several locations here in marin where you can pick up sandbags. we're not just talking about the rain. we're talking about the wind as steve mentioned. this is going to be a heavy wind event as well. so people certainly need to get ready. here in marin county. other concern is traffic from talking to people up here. they say during the last rain storm last week, there was a lot of flooding on the freeways. a lot of that traffic went on the side streets. there's definitely concern about that during this upcoming rain storm which is expected to hit late wednesday and into
thursday. back to you. >> hopefully people will take advantage of it and listen to the advice. some parents are angry about a decision to hire a private investigator to follow a student home. a woman said the controversy started started when her family, including her live-in nanny her daughter was living in the home. she said they were followed home by a private investigator and she was never asked about vivian. >> her bicycle is in the garage. she's so much part of our family, that my toddler cries when she leaves. >> she says the investigator also followed 7-year-old vivian when she visited her grandmother in baypoint on weekends. the district has already said it was wrong in saying vivian didn't live in orinda and that -- and she's being allowed to attend school there. 7:11.
the deadline just passed for people in a homeless camp to clear out. coming up at 7:30, the suspicious fires overnight, it's complicating the vction -- evection. overseas embassies have tightened security as the senate prepares to release a report today that some say will destroy the cia. we are looking at a commute getting busier. before belook too far ahead, we -- we look too far ahead to thursday, we have issues. that's fog. a lot of it. from san francisco northward but another beautiful sunrise. there you go.
investigators are looking for a meetish of a stabbing inside a new york city synagogue that ended in a fatal shooting. >> step away. >> whoa, whoa, whoa. >> this is new video from a cell phone camera that captured this morning's terrifying scene in brooklyn. police say a man with a knife stabbed an israeli student in the head before being fatally shot by police after he refused to drop his knife. the 22-year-old stabbing victim is expected to survive. well, u.s. embassies around the world. they are tightening security before today's release of a report on the cia's very tough interrogation techniques after the september 11th attacks. the report details how the cia used techniques like sleep deprivation, confinement in small spaces, humiliation and
waterboarding. dianne feinstein has been pushing for the report to be released. but there are fears about a backlash. >> this is a terrible idea. our foreign partners are telling us this will cause violence and deaths. >> i think there's a little bit of overstating of the issue, a little bit of fearmongerring which i would interpret as a way to try to suppress the information. >> now, the 480-page report is the first public accounting of the cia's alleged use of torture on suspected al qaeda detainees held in secret places in europe and asia in the years after september 11th. u.s. defense secretary chuck hagel is in baghdad. he's meeting with iraqi government officials and u.s. commanders. take a look at the video. here's hagel arriving in baghdad. during a visit to kuwait yesterday, he said he believes iraq's security forces have gained new momentum thanks in part to u.s. airstrikes against
islamic state militants. hagel is on what is expected to be his final overseas trip as secretary of defense. 7:16. and sal, brian touch oned on the -- touched on the problems with flooding on the freeway. i i know several people who turned around around went home. >> that particular day when it happened, i got a response from people because it was way worse than normal. if that happens again on thursday and friday we'll let you know. >> steve will talk about the tide. i think it was more of a high tide. >> you will definitely know about it. it won't make it better but at least knowing about it -- >> sure. >> let's take a look at -- and by the way, in case you are wondering about marin, since we spoke of it, it's a normal backup. people can handle the normal stuff. this is also kind of a normal commute. northbound 101 as you approach the 880 interchange. the traffic is doing well.
as i bring steve in in a political bit. we are going to talk about thursday and friday which look to be bad commute days coming up. not today. this is a look at highway 4. it's bad on highway 4 because of an earlier crash which is gone. the traffic is still very, very slow. at the bay bridge toll plaza, it's backed up for about 25, 30 minutes. steve, as we bring you in, thursday and friday, people knowing about it can make plans not to drive, perhaps. >> if you don't have to on thursday, i wouldn't. we're still two days away. and a lot can happen. but everything is pointing towards thursday being very wet and windy. there is a high tide at 3:30 in the morning. about 3:27. the low tide will be at 8:30 a.m. that may help because the front looks like it will be going through right about then. we'll see. it may hang up. it may slow down, stall. there is a lot of ifs. thursday does look like it will be a wild day.
wind and also with the rain. we do get areas of fog, very, very thick. i know on treat boulevard, concord, ygnacio valley, pleasant hill, sorked in like's soup. drizzle san francisco, marin county and there are some breaks on the clouds. heavy rain looks like thursday. there will be some very hefty totalles here over the -- totals here over the next three, five days. all of this starts not today, not even tomorrow morning but late, late wednesday into thursday. some of the areas, i think santa cruz mountains, russian rivers could easily top the 5 to 8-inch amounts between wednesday night and friday . 30 to 50-mile-an-hour winds. high surf advisory. that starts tonight. that goes through friday. combined seas 15 to 20 feet there could be some higher than 20 feet. the winter stormwatch for the
sierra is thursday. a few days away. snow will be measured in feet. snow level will start off very high but it will drop by late thursday into friday. this system will have cold air. today it's a lot of cold air, drizzle. rain on the north coast. cloudy this morning to mostly cloudy. fog, drizzle, mostly cloudy. but very mild kind of muggy on these temperatures. could be a almost bit of drizzle. there are some breaks in the clouds. mostly cloudy, maybe even drizzle towards the santa cruz mountains. along the coast also up into the north bay. other system is still taking shape. 50s on the temps to 60. 60 at sfo. the water temp, 62 bodega bay. probably a record in the nonel nino event or year. amazingly warm that has to be feeding into these systems. 30s up in the mountains. 62 eureka, probably a record low minimum. i would think. that's just amazingly warm as well. our system will start to move in but not until late. it will stall out. slow down the heaviest totals will be to the north bay but
all the way down to monterey, you are seeing inches to maybe 6 plus in some locations. cazadero with drizzle and light rain had two-thirds. can only imagine what can happen when they get to the heavier rain. 60s on the temps to 70. everything will be fine tuned tomorrow as we head into late wednesday. thursday, again, rain and wind. not trying to scare anybody. >> no, of course. >> prepare. >> just be prepared. this looks like the best system we've had in a long time. colder with possible thunderstorms on friday. >> i think people will be more upset if we don't warn them. if you get caught offguard, you need to plan to leave the house early. >> and the dogs outside and the christmas ornaments. >> thank you, steve. 7:21. amazon may move the drone tests to another country. amazon asked for permission to test drones outside the offices in a remote area of washington
state but has not received approval from the faa. amazon said the faa is blocking by not hey louing the test -- allowing tests. the faa does allow seven hollywood production companies to use drones for filming but that's the only private use of drones approved so far. there is another story people are talking about. a controversial arrest. it happened during the pac 12 championship game at levi stadium. coming up in 15 minutes, why santa clara police say their officers had to take aggressive action. a flight delayed because the disagreement over snacks. up next, how a seemingly petty argument escalated into the resignation of an airline executive.
7:24. a korean airline executive has resigned over claims that she delayed a flight from new york to south korea because of the way she was served her onboard snack. now, vice president and daughter of korean air chairman heather cho demanded the plane return to the gate and that the chief flight attendant be removed from the plane over in- flight service standards that. was after a junior flight attendant served cho mack dameian nuts -- mack dameian nuts in a bag instead of a plate. well, if you have ever thought there should be a law about something, now may be the chance to make that happen. state senator jerry hill is challenging his constituents who mainly live on the peninsula to submit ideas for a new law or recommend overturning one that there feel should not be a law. -- they feel should not be a law.
people can submit their ideas over the phone or by mail. last year it was mill's parents who suggested a law expanding advanced placement expanding procedures after an incident led to student doors being thrown out. 7:25. it is eviction day for people at san jose's newest homeless camp. up next, the suspicious fires overnight that's complicating today's deadlines. we're having fun behind the scenes at the oakland zoo, hanging out with our best buddies. we'll indro indro dues you -- introduce you. all right. well, this commute is actually doing okay. but we do have some slow traffic out there. right in the heart of the morning commute like on the san mateo bridge. and you see a tow truck going out there to get a stalled car. we'll tell you more about that coming up. if you don't have the fog, and there is a lot of that going around, or drizzle, it's
telling homeless people to gather up their belongings and move. this comes days after a massive eviction of that huge nearby camp known as the jungle. tara moriarty has been out there aurl morning -- all morning keeping an eye on fires set, talking to the fire investigators. they've been called in to look at a series of suspicious fires, including one that we showed you this morning. we're gonna check in with her in a little bit. i'm pam cook in for tori campbell. >> i'm dave clark. let's talk about weather and traffic. i ducked out a moment ago. nice, brisk morning outside. >> i know it. >> i know you know. >> any drizzle? >> i didn't seep any -- see any drizzle. not yet. >> there's drizzle up there, san francisco, pacifica, foggy, around concord, pleasant hill and highway 4 and baypoint. we do have mostly cloudy skies. this system will slow down. i think it will stall a little
bit. i think it will be thursday into friday. cold air won't get here until friday. we still have a couple of days. all signs point to very heavy rainfall coming in on thursday. it may not come in until overnight. but suffice it to say, high wind watches are out. high surf advisory. the winter stormwatch for the serdoesn't start until thursday. that snow level may not come down until friday. a lot of cloud cover over us. cloudy, mild, mostly cloudy. foggy for some. they thick. drizzle being reported. light rain. mostly cloudy. very mild temps. upper 50s to near 60. there are a few breaks. it won't be cloudy all day long. but cloudy to the north. partly cloudy, our system has a ways to go. there is a lot of cold air. it's still two days away. 50s on the temps. a little southeast breeze out ahead of the means very mild conditions. the rainfall projections are hefty. they are impressive. it will be thursday into friday and that's when the colder air

24 westbound is moderate. back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. happening right now, in san jose, a fire at a homeless camp known as the jungle now another camp nearby is about to be cleared out. ktvu's tara moriarty joins us now from the area. this is near 280 and 680 off tully road at stonegate park. so it could be a busy area. >> reporter: we just received -- we just got off the phone with somebody who has friends inside the homeless camp. we're told this is not going to happen because of a legal issue. we're near the tully community branch library. you can't -- you can't seep -- can't see the camp from where we're standing. a neighbor called police and let them know that they were here. now, around 4:30 this morning, we want to mention we were at the jungle. a fire actually broke out there and some say that that fire was
clearly retaliation against the city. homeless homeless people who are angry. the fire captain said he's not ready to make that call despite the fact that three fires have sprung up in the jungle over the past four days. no one is living there. we spoke to one homeless woman who relocated a few blocks from the jung. . she's been sleeping on the sidewalk with the tarp over her head. she says she has no place to go now. >> i don't know. i guess they must have their reasons. >> did they offer you any services? >> no. >> they didn't say here is a homeless shelter. >> they said pack my stuff in ten minutes or they are gonna take me to jail. >> reporter: the jungle is the 68-acre site that had as many as 300 homeless people living in it at one time. the city has clamped down on it due to high crime, environmental and health reasons. once again, we're out here near the tully community branch
library where quite a distance out there is another -- is the creek where the trees are. that's apparently where the homeless encampment is at the moment. that raid that was supposed to happen at 7:00 has been postponed. we'll let you know if we hear any more information. >> we'll check back in with you. the san jose city council will consider approving an agreement with air bnb. right now home sharing is unregulated in san jose. the council is expected to approve a 10% tax on all air bnb rentals. that would be in line with taxes on hotel rooms. people who share their homes would be required to notify the city and rentals would be limited to 180 days per year. san francisco passed a similar measure back in october. 7:35. that huge fire in downtown los angeles yesterday, that destroyed an apartment building under construction and then shut down part of two major highways, well, it may have
been arson. more than 250 firefighters battled these big flames. it took about 90 minutes to knock down most of it. now, any fire this big it's treated like it's suspicious. federal investigators still have to sift through the scene before an official decision is made. a former petaluma if firefighter is suing the city claiming sexual harassment. the lawsuit by andrea waters claims a loss of wages and other unspecified financial damages. the 35-year-old woman claims she suffered harassment, discrimination and retaliation from the time she was hired until the time she resigned earlier this year. so far the city of petaluma has made no comment on those claims. well, joe montana plans to build a $400 million development near the stadium, those plans are on hold. other business problems caused
a similar delay last year. santa clara city leaders have not lost faith in him despite the setback. the council is expected to give him exclusive rights to the land possibly as early as tonight. santa clara police are defend ing the officers involved in a controversial arrest at levi stadium. >> he's not fighting back! he's not fighting back! >> it happened friday night during the pac 12 championship game. this is cell phone video. it shows officers moving into arrest 44-year-old mark lieden of oregon. many witnesses say the officers overreacted as they took him into custody. but police say they needed to take aggressive action to control a belligerent and possibly dangerous fan. >> at one point, mr. lieden is grabbing onto one of the officer's clothes and is not letting go. so if he would have submitted to the officer's authority a lot of this would not have
happened. >> lieden is facing charges of assaulting an officer and resisting arrest. the santa clara police department's investigation is looking into how officers handle the situation. 7:37. extra police are patrolling union square after a string of thefts at high-end luxury stores by a group of young women. the women with called the rainbow girls because they wear brightly colored clothing. you are looking at video at the arthur barrons store in may. police say the group has struck as recently as last month. the women grab merchandise and rung out the store. business owners say if they see the group in the area, they will alert other stores. many will even lock their doors. ktvu has learned the prosecutors in san francisco charged in a -- charged a former uber driver with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter. prosecutors say he hit 6-year-

fatal blow. they say their client is a teenager circled in blue in khakis and a shortsleeve shifrt. they also say the young man wearing dark pants circled in the red. he's the one that actually stabbed williams. >> they begin to turn the corner. the decredant comes out -- decedent comes out. you will see on the left side in the darker pants, that's the individual that we say is responsible for this. my client is standing behind him. now, watch the hand. >> the public defender's office is hoping to all charges dropped against its client. sal has been keeping an eye -- a little bit of slow traffic. >> we're looking at the eastshore freeway, dave and pam -- or pam and dave, as pam was just talking there. the east shore to the carquinez, 45 minutes. as you drive down to the
macarthur maze at the bay bridge toll plaza, you will see some slow traffic. driving through the area has been slow. contra costa county, highway 4 is not in good shape. this started off because of an earlier crash near highway 242. now 680 is slow near pleasant hill. we're looking at sonoma and santa rosa. santa rosa looks good today. both directions. not all that bad. northbound and southbound but further south in marin between novato and san rafael. you do have slow traffic. time for today's forecast. let's go to steve. >> thank you, sal. a lot of fog report, even some drizzle. san francisco, the fog mainly, mainly east bay. the drizzle from san francisco actual -- actually pacifica along the coast, sonoma county. a lot of mostly cloudy skies over us. there are a few breaks in the clouds. we're waiting for the system to move in. it's still two days away. i think it will slow down and stall out which would be a bad sign. but thursday and friday will be the days that we have to focus
on. today is the tweener day. heavy rainfall is expected. high wind watch already posted. there's gonna be heavy totals over the next five days. again, let's ease into this as we get closer to wednesday night. nothing will happen. light drizzle. flash flood watch out wednesday night into thursday. might even be extended into friday morning. some of the rainfall projections, 1 to 3. lower elevations 5 to 8 maybe 10. into friday afternoon and evening and marin county and russian river. flood stage, guerneville, 31. predinthed flood stage is -- preen -- predicted flood stage is 32. the wind advisory will kick in thursday night, take us into thursday. could be easily, 60, 70-mile-an- hour gusts. we're not trying to scare you. we just want to give you a heads up. high surf advisory starts tonight. takes us into friday. some of this cold air for the
seer may not arrive until friday. so thursday into friday is when the winter stormwatch, snowfall will be measured in feet. snow level goes way up at first and then come down as we head towards friday and into friday night. today it's cloudy to mostly cloudy. a lot of fog, rain up on the north coast. there are a few breaks. it won't be cloudy to the north, we get more cloud cover. our system is still developing. what's going to happen, there will be a wave developing on that. the water temps are so warm. one would think it would feed into the system. 30s in the mountains. 30 to 62 eureka. that's warm. that's warmer than san diego. don't see that all of the time. that's the system coming in. rainfall will start late wednesday to the north and go all the way into friday. you can take your pick from monterey to ukiah, those are really heavy totals and some of that might be heavier. here's the one i want to show you. this the rainfall projection on timing. everything is fine until we get towards late thursday or late wednesday. the system comes into the north bay at 6:00. then it stalls out there.
the reason being. that's a wave forming. that's a change in wind direction on the front. it does a couple of things. it slows it down. it can intense fine. i think that will -- intensify. i think that's what will happen on thursday. we'll ease into it. fine tune it on wednesday for your thursday. cloudy to mostly cloudy. 60s to near 70. extremely warm air mass. the water temps helped by the coast. you are sitting at 62-degree water temps. everything starts to increase on the clouds beadz and then rain starts late wednesday in the north bay. it may take a while to get here. >> you were talking about the tide -- >> 3:30 in the morning is the high and then there is a low at 8:30. that may help. >> and that's when the bulk of the -- >> i think it's slowing down.

expected. there could be 5 to 10. again this, won't come in until -- if not late, late wednesday, probably early thursday. there are high wind watches posted. flooding, downed trees. there will be travel delays. thursday could be a mess. could be very intense rain. still two days away. but everything is pointing in that direction. today it's pointing in into a cloudy to mostly cloudy day. we do have some drizzle. it looks like breaks in the clouds. that drizzle should end. measure -- measurables along the coast. but the system that we're waiting for is still developing. it's coming out of the gulf of alaska. it's right there. it will slow down. i think it will slow down. suffice it so say, i got two days to deal with t the water temps, 60s. 30s up inspect mountains. the winter stormwatch doesn't start there until thursday. highs 60s and 70s. i will have more coming up in 12 minutes. here's sal with an update on.
traffic. better on the san mateo bridge. it is better there, steve. you are absolutely right. i'm glad you are paying attention. but the traffic is getting slower in some other areas. let's go out 0880 northbound where the slowdown has become thick in front of the coliseum. it does begin to slow right in san leandro. so you will see slow traffic there. some of the slowest traffic has been approaching the bay bridge from 580. it's backed up from 98 to -- not too much out of the ordinary. it's slow. there is a lot of slow traffic on 880. this qualifies for me as a moderate commute. this has been very slow. highway 4 westbound. we've had a lot of fender- benders and a lot of slow traffic on 680. we've had slow traffic and now 680 is slow all the way into danville. we mentioned santa rosa is not bad. and marin county is slow from novato to san rafael. 8:03. back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. more than a thousand people hit the streets of berkeley in a third straight night of
protests. last night's demonstration began peacefully, it took a turn when a large crowd of people marched onto interstate 80. take a look. blocked traffic in both directions. more than 150 people were arrested. now, amtrak service was also shut down when protesters laid down on the tracks. katie utehs is at the university yam track station. with more from protesters and people who are being affected by this. >> reporter: pam, yam track didn't open until early this morning, a little before 4:00, the tracks were cleared. great news for folks who rely on that system. now, all three of the berkeley protests have been in the cover of darkness. over of the weekend, that led to vandalism possibly, people being able to hide in the darkness. because it's in the evening, there's also issues with this snarling people's evening commute. let me show you some video from newschopper2 of the protesters as they took over interstate 80
last night. at its peak, the protest was more than 1,000 strong. >> what we did on the freeway was very effective. we stopped traffic. we stopped the whole city. we got you guys out here. >> it takes a lot of people to shut down a freeway. there has to be something behind what they are trying to show. so more power to them. [laughter] >> reporter: some people are trying to avoid the protests all together. we spoke with a man who commutes from his job at lawrence livermore labs to his home in sacramento. he said they received a heads up ahead of the protest and he plans to leave early as well. >> i think it irritates people more than anything especially people that have been working all day. you are trying to get home. i don't think it helps their cause at all. >> reporter: the protesters also got in front of an amtrak
train at the university stakes. it laid down on the tracks. the video shows a woman with her face covered as she climbed on the front of a train. service was suspended around 11:00 last night and reopened a little before 4:00 this morning. we are getting mixed reactions from people this morning. some are in support of the protests and say it does bring more people to the dialogue. others say it distracts from the message and ultimately just irritates people. but altogether, some protesters will say it's effective because we're here talking about it. people are talking about it nationally and people are talking about it online. we would love to hear what you have to say. head to our facebook page. hit us up on twitter. there's interesting discussions taking place there. pam? dave? >> people are talking about it. you are right. 8:06. well, berkeley mayor tom bates talked to ktvu about the protests. he says while he supports the cause, he is disappointed things turned violent and protesters broke the law.

followed 7-year-old vivian when she visited her grand mother in baypoint on the weekends. the school district said it was wrong in saying that vivian did not live in orinda. she's been allowed to live there. a storm coming into town in the next couple of days will be a big one, which is why emergency responders are telling people to get ready. brian flores is in san ratch fell with some of the preparations underway. >> reporter: the storm will be a big one, as you mentioned expected up to 3 to 8 inches depending upon where you live in the bay area. we're live in front of the marin ace hardware store in san rafael located off-- off 101. hardware stores are getting ready. good morning. >> good morning. >> reporter: we are -- we've gating ready for the storm. you've had to stock up on items. what have you stork -- stocked
up on. >> batteries, sump pumps, pipe for drainage. rain gear, boots. >> reporter: and we're looking at some of the video from how you guys are getting ready. from the last storm, what did people get and we're talking about how people tend to reeb hacket more as opposed to prepare. talk more about that. >> the last storm wasn't that big. people are basically coming in for tarps. no real emergency supplies like flashlights or batteries. but i recommend people be prepared rather than waiting until thursday. come out today and tomorrow. pick up what you need. if you have areas that are prone to flooding get pumps. get drainage going now. think about the different things. >> reporter: we're over in san rafael earlier this morning. we were at a place where you could get sandbags. recommend people getting sandbags as well. flood prone areas. >> if your house floods or where you are living floods or
the garage floods, this is the time to think about it. have sandbags ready to go. be proactive. >> reporter: obviously, the advice that you have been hearing any time there is a rain storm. but this one sounds like it will be different in terms of the rain amounts that will be falling. again, 3 to 8 inches. if you are listening to this, be prepared out there. it could be a lot of major problems out there. not just around the households around the burn areas. could be a lot of major problems on the freeways as well. pam, you can attest to that from the storm from last week. back to you. >> you are right. we'll gotta get ready. thank you. 8:11. the deadline it just passed for the people in a new san jose homeless camp. coming up at 8:30, suspicious overnight fires that are complicating the eviction. you've employed a lot of people mostlily as secretary of defense. >> well --

burn off. there are already some breaks. our system is developing. it's right here. right there is the development. i guarantee you, it will form what's called a little wave on it which will slow it down it might intensify the rain and keep it around a lot longer. two days away. the water temps inspect 60s will feed into the system. they are so warm for so late in the season. 30s in the mountains. 50s for almost everybody else. some of the rain totals again, this is just from monterey, san jose, san francisco, santa rosa, ukiah and that's a lot of rain between thursday and friday. friday could be really kicked. i think a low will form right over us. that's three days away. the timing on this shows nothing until wednesday evening. then it slows down and kind of stalls out over north bay. it doesn't advance past santa rosa until early thursday. that's the line right there. that's extremely intense rain.

partly cloudy to the south as everything begins to develop. it will develop rapidly. it will slow down and take its time. one system moving to the north. our system will look much better starting tomorrow. my concern is i think it will stall out over us. we could see very heavy totals. not until thursday or friday. it will carry into thursday and friday. some of the totals are as high as we've seen. that does not include the santa cruz mountains, also into marin county and parts of the russian river. more to come. tomorrow we'll fine tune all of this. clowty to mostly cloudy. some -- cloudy to mostly cloudy. 60s to near 70. busy for a while, sal. but are things better? they are getting a little better. we're seeing the tail end of this commute. we're still seeing some slow traffic in many areas like 280 -- like 80 westbound coming into san francisco. they are clearing an accident northbound 101 at cesar cesar
