and reduce the length of the delay. taking a look at this map from b.a.r.t., since there's no service this weekend, b.a.r.t. will instead run buses between the 19th street station in oakland and the temporary transbay terminal in san francisco. it's about a two block walk to the embarcadero station. the other options, ac transit and san francisco bay are adding extra service this weekend. people can take a water taxi but it will cost you about $15 for round-trip from the berkeley marina to the san francisco ferry building. the tight line water taxi is launching a new service across the bay for commuters. and of course some b.a.r.t. riders will decide to take a look across the bridge. you can see not very many cars going across at this hour but of course it's still early. traffic will definitely pick up throughout this morning, especially with more buses crossing the bridge. our allie rasmus will have a live report of the tube shut down at 5:30.

anyone to zimbabwe since a treaty took effect years ago. but the zimbabwe government has started extradition proceedings. he shot and killed a lion with a crossbow last month. cecil the lion was illegally lured out of that park sanctuary and killed. >> initial legal review and the united states officials will need to determine whether or not the crime he has been charged with is a crime in both counties. >> palmer closed his dental practice and has gone into hiding. he did send a representative to talk to the u.s. fish and wildlife service which is investigating the circumstances of the lion's death. secretary of state john kerry is in the middle east today in hopes of assuring some of america's allies about the nuclear deal with iran. first stop in egypt and qatar but not visit israel. the obama administration says it isn't giving up on convincing israel about the merits of the deal. the white house says kerry's trip is a follow-up to

38-year-old david ruhl of rapid city, south dakota was on temporary assignment. his body was found yesterday morning. an investigation now underway. and governor jerry brown has declared a state of emergency as 18 fires burn dangerously out of control in our state. one of the biggest fires is the rocky fire which is burning in lake county. we got an update on that fire, 22,500 acres has burned and it's 5% contained. three houses have already been destroyed. and there are signs at all b.a.r.t. stations notifying riders that -- there are no trains running between san francisco and oakland. ktvuktvu fox 2 news reporter allie rasmus is live on the shut down. you are with some of the buses that are bringing at least some of the people across the bay. >> reporter: that's right. while the transbay tube is shut down, b.a.r.t. during the week and days leading up to this told people if you can, stay on your side of the bay but of course people have jobs to get to, flights to
catch, and for many people b.a.r.t. is their own option. there's about 98,000 people on a typical saturday who take the b.a.r.t. from oakland to san francisco so while the transbay tube is shut down for these repairs, b.a.r.t. set up this bus bridge to coordinate this. it seems like things are running pretty smoothly. we are at 20th and broadway. this bus bridge spans an entire city block. all of the people in the yellow vests are directing b.a.r.t. passengers which buses to get onto, telling people where to go. we have seen a lot of people running thinking if they don't catch the bus they are going to miss out entirely but they have been telling people these buses come frequently, about every 45 seconds to a minute, so as soon as one takes off another one comes in right in to take its place. the transbay tube is shut down all weekend long so b.a.r.t. can replace a half mile section of crossover track, that crossover track is from west
oakland station to the tube, it's 45 years old. the wooden ties are rotting. it's the kind of work you're seeing in this video over here. obviously that's not the work they are doing but it's just like the video you see, we are showing you right now. b.a.r.t. officials say once the repairs are done, the tracks should be good for another two to three decades so they are hoping that this inconvenience will pay off in the long run. so far we have talked to some people who had to take the bus bridge this morning and they say so far, so good. >> so far it's been pretty okay. i was really hesitant about the b.a.r.t. being shut down but it seems they have managed the system pretty well. >> reporter: you see some of the people boarding one of the buses here. b.a.r.t. is contracted with a number of different transit agencies across the bay area to provide these buses. again, they are running frequently, about every minute or so and so far a lot of the buses we have seen this morning have been pretty full. you can expect all of this to take place again on labor day weekend, b.a.r.t. is going to shut down the
transway tube again in about a month from now in order to complete those repairs and coming up at 8:00, we will be hearing from b.a.r.t. spokesperson jim alison about the track repairs. that's in about half an hour. back to you guys. >> appreciate that report. certainly it can be a little rough ride. we have seen closures in the past when we talk about bridge closures. it's okay for the first few hours of the morning and then it starts to build up and back up. anytime you take one major thoroughfare away. >> as you said earlier, don't rely on the buses because they will be packed, packed, packed. rosemary, probably a nice day to take the ferry, enjoy the ride, give yourself extra time and enjoy your ride across the water. >> i love the ferry. we will have cloudy skies this morning, but by lunchtime crossing over into san francisco going to be a nice view giving you a look here at the clouds beginning to clear
and we are with mostly sunny skies for the second half of the day. along the coastline i think we will be partly cloudy to mostly cloudy the entire day and giving you a look here from up above, we've got the clouds all the way through the east bay over portions of the north bay and down in and around santa cruz and over areas of the south bay, areas like gilroy, but partly cloudy in san jose with 63 degrees, 64 in oakland right now, 60 in napa, good morning to you, walnut creek looking at 63 outside your door, temperatures along the peninsula, we've got 63sfo, 64 redwood city, 65 in mountain view. mid-60s to start your day palo alto, 63 in belmont and fortunate city 63 outside your door as well as san mateo. morgan hill 61, 62 degrees for saratoga, afternoon highs for today falling off from yesterday by a few degrees, 81 expected in napa for the afternoon, 78 san rafael, low 70s for berkeley, 74 expected in oakland.
the inner east bay will be a warm day but not nearly as hot as we have been recently, 84 in antioch for the afternoon. we shift south and take a look at what's happening here in the south bay for today, 81 san jose, 87 morgan hill, 78 santa cruz, 65 half moon bay. so temperatures very comfortable for a summer day. we are going even cooler, i'll have a look at what you can expect for your sunday in the extended forecast, just how long this cooling trend is going to last coming up. >> thanks, rosemary. the san francisco sheriff's department says an inmate found dead inside the county jail appears to have committed suicide. now the family -- the man's family and the public defender's office are questioning whether the sheriffs department took proper precautions to prevent it. the jail staff had been warned three times. that 50-year-old alberto carlos pet lino might have mental health issues. last saturday his family called and said he had gone to the golden gate bridge to commit
suicide. a judge ordered a psychiatric evaluation on monday but he was found dead the next day. >> certainly we are concerned about the level of care our clients are getting while in custody. >> the public defender's office says this is their third client to die in the jail this year and they want a review of jail policies to prevent another incident. the san francisco police department and the medical examiner are conducting independent investigations. and we are hearing from the father of maddy middleton, the 8-year-old santa cruz girl who was kidnapped and then killed last weekend. mike middleton released a statement thanking the community for their support. he adds, quote, my hope is that she is never forgotten and she will remain in our hearts for all eternity. please help us keep her spirit alive and thriving and help celebrate her passing as this community has continued to do so. the 15-year-old boy charged with killing maddy is being tried as an adult but some
child advocates are questioning the decision of the santa cruz county district attorney. they say adrian gonzalez may be too young to understand the acts he's accused of committing. an attorney with the youth law center in san francisco says the d.a. should have consulted with a judge before filing the charges. >> it's a mistake to rush to justice and in particular it's a mistake to think that automatically because it's this kind of an offense that he should be tried in the adult system. >> because gonzalez is a minor, he cannot receive the dealt penalty. at most he can get life in prison. crime victim advocates say they are confident that a jury can weigh all the circumstances and decide whether he should be locked up for the rest of his life in an adult. the investigation continues in the shooting death of sergeant scott lunger. they returned to the suspect's home, the defense attorney says police served a search warrant and collected items that may have been previously overlooked. the suspect, 21-year-old marc anthony estrada lived with his parents in east oakland. according to his mother,
investigators removed a poster and artwork. the defense attorney says authorities are still investigating if estrada has possible kabang ties -- gang ties. san jose police say all available officers are going to hit the streets this weekend after a surge in violence. police say last weekend there were two stabbings, three attempted sexual assaults and five shootings, two of which were deadly. authorities say violent and property crimes are slightly up this year as compared to last. though homicides are not. police plan to target hot spots in hopes of keeping people safe. >> we owe it to our community to go ahead and get out there in force, working with our community to go ahead and curb some of the violence. >> now police say the stepped- up enforcement will last as long as it's necessary. time now 7:38. football season is approaching. the 49ers start their training camp today and we are learning that some of the 49er faithful may not be that faithful after
all. ktvu found a couple of fans who are looking to sell their season tickets because of all the chang's to the -- changes to the team. >> reporter: talk about a difference a year and a half makes, december 2014, 49ers one win way to the super bowl. now the hype surrounding the red and gold not as high. >> the hype is different. it's wait and see. >> reporter: he has been a 49er season ticketholder since the candlestick days. he went to eight home games last year. this year he's looking at going to just two. >> you go to games because of the player talent that's on the field and now that you know that some of that talent is gone, it's kind of hard to see. >> reporter: he sent a mass text to his friends last week looking to sell his season tickets. >> all home games are available. please message me if you're interested. thank you. >> reporter: so far? >> so far no response. >> reporter: not surprising says ryan, founder of the blog niner fans.com with the accidents of veteran -- exit of veteran players. not to mention end of the har
hrabock -- harbock coaching regime. tickets dropped 30% compared to last year. this while newly built levi's stadium is set to host super bowl 50. >> it's sad because here's a billion dollar stadium and now people want to sell their tickets and kind of just jump off ship. >> reporter: he is quick to point out still some talented players are on the team and new coach jim to tomsula is well received. this die hard fan plans to remain faithful. >> i don't think anybody expected them to win the championship but we pulled through. who knows what to expect from the 49ers? >> reporter: despite these doubts there's still a lot of interest in the 49ers. the niners just announcing that they have doubled the
attendance letting 20,000 fans view practice here at levi's on august 9th. and today is day 2 of training camp for the oakland raiders. the team is working out in the napa valley training complex while the rangers have only won 11 games in the past three seasons combined, there's plenty of optimism along the silver and black. the raiders' first preseason game is friday, august 14th against the st. louis rams at the coliseum. ktvu fox 2 and kciu will show that game. >> big deal in football this year. people hoped the niners would be able to play in a super bowl at home but questionable. let's keep the faith. we are following developing news in san jose where a chase ended with an exchange of gun fire. coming up at 8:00, more on this shooting, carjacking and crash and who is in custody. if you can lighten the load on this, it's a good thing. >> and it's been in the works for years but a key rail line in san francisco has finally

other way to get to work is a bus. bus bridges that b.a.r.t. has set up along with the half a dozen other transit agencies across the bay area. they have been pretty packed so far this morning. on a typical saturday there's about 98,000 people who rely on b.a.r.t. to get from oakland to san francisco. transbay tube as you know is shut down, but people are still finding ways to get there. you can see pretty steady stream of people making their way over to this bus bridge at 20th and broadway where we are and there's a number of people from b.a.r.t. and ac transit sort of directing folks which buses to go, how to get to where they need to get to. these buses are going to take people to san francisco, they will be dropping them off at the transbay terminal in san francisco, about two blocks away from the embarcadero station but they have muni buses giving people free rides. i have with me jim alison, b.a.r.t.
spokesperson. is there any other way to do this or is this it? >> we urgently need to do work on this section of tracks and if we were to try to do it in the -- say one day at a time it would extend it over many, many weekends, so we prefer just to do these two weekend shutdowns, get the work done and get everything back in service as quickly as possible. >> reporter: and you said two weekend shutdowns. labor day weekend is the next time we are going to have a repeat of this? >> that's right, a three-day weekend on labor day so that's a great opportunity for us to do the work. >> reporter: and what is the work that you guys are doing? repair, maintenance of a crossover track. how essential that piece of work? >> it's very essential. we really -- if we did not do this work right now, somewhere down the line 2 or three years, we would not be able to run trains even straight through the transbay tube. right now we are just not using it as a crossover. so this is the system that's more than 40 years old, the railroad ties are just worn out. they need to be replaced. this is the best way to do it, just get it done in two weekend
shutdowns. >> reporter: and once the two weekend shutdowns are done with, once the work is done, the repairs will make the tracks good for another couple of decades? >> right. once we get this big shutdown done, we should be okay for the next 40 years. so if we just look at it, we need to keep batt in place for the future generations of riders. >> reporter: thanks so much, jim alison, b.a.r.t. spokesperson. short-term pain for long-term pave. they are hoping once they get these repairs done this weekend and then a month from now, those tracks should be good for several decades to come and in the meantime, folks we talked to are relying on this bus bridge this morning and say so far everything seems to be running smoothly. these buses come pretty frequently. as soon as one pulls out, another one comes up in its place, so coming every 45 seconds to one minute is when a new bus comes by. so far, so good out here. back to you. >> thank you. you said it's going pretty smoothly so far this morning. have a lot of people been out
showing up to take the buses and stake it across the bay -- take it across the bay? >> reporter: yeah, a lot of these buses full, 98,000 people taking b.a.r.t. on a saturday, take a look inside here, the photographer is going to show us, this bus just pulled up a few seconds ago and there's already about a dozen people on it but they are expecting, come out here, you can see a steady stream of people making their way to the bus as well so the buses are pretty full. this is a service that they are definitely utilizing in light of this transbay shutdown. >> looks like a lot of room on that bus. thank you very much. with transbay service shut down, the bay bridge expected to pick up over the extra burden. we told you we would take a look at the traffic. there it is, it looks pretty smooth right now, smooth sailing across the bay bridge toll plaza, it is still early, of course, but traffic will definitely pick up throughout this morning, especially with more buses crossing the bridge. time now is 8:04, looks pretty gray out there but we have been talking about it all

agencies, transit agencies in the bay area to provide bus service across the bay and they have 98 buses that will be going back and forth across the bay during the weekend while this transbay closure is in effect. and these buses have been pretty full. we have seen as many as, you know, a couple of these buses totally packed with people. the estimate is about 98,000 people on a given saturday rely on b.a.r.t. to get from oakland to san francisco, so they are taking these buses instead. a lot of them are. a lot of folks are staying home but people have jobs and flights to catch and places to get to, so this is the only alternative. the transbay tube is shut down because b.a.r.t. is going to be repairing a half mile section of crossover track just beyond the west oakland station. that section of track is about 45 years old. the wooden ties are rotting and b.a.r.t. officials say they absolutely had to get this work done in order to keep the track going. once the work is done, the track should be good for another two to three decades,
according to b.a.r.t. so they are hoping there's going to be short-term pain for some long-term payoff. b.a.r.t. spokesman jim allen told us this morning there was no other way to complete the work than by shutting down the tube for an entire weekend. >> we urgently need to do work on this section of track and if we were to try to do it in the city one day at a time, it would extend it over many, many weekends. so we prefer just to do these two weekend shutdowns, get the work done and get everything back in service as quickly as possible. >> here you go. >> reporter: we talked to quite a few passengers this morning about the bus bridge. everyone says that it's been running pretty well. they have had no problem getting a bus. the buses come pretty frequently, every 45 seconds to a minute. so passengers told us so far, so good this morning. >> so far it's been pretty okay. i was really hesitant about the b.a.r.t. being shut down but it seems that they have managed the system pretty well. >> reporter: you heard jim
allen reference it early this morning. they are going to be shutting down the transbay tube again. expect a repeat of all of this about a month from now, labor day weekend all three days, but for now, they are also going to have a bus bridge over labor day weekend when they do the shutdown again but for now, people seem to be doing pretty well. you see a lot of folks have suitcases, trying to get across the bay to get to the airport, what not. but people are getting on the buses, the buses are pretty packed but so far things are pretty calm and moving along very smoothly. claudine, back to you. >> we only hope it lasts like that throughout the day and tomorrow. thanks so much, allie. we have talked about buses, b.a.r.t., ferries. >> you know what's next? weather. let's talk about the great weather. >> how nice it will be when everyone is taking their alternate routes into the city. >> still looks cloudy where allie is this morning but going to burn off? >> definitely not as hot as we have. the cooldown started yesterday, going to continue into your saturday afternoon, so it will be a great day to be outdoors

the snakes, those are real responses. i was -- the way i describe it is kind of like when i was in central america we had line mines, except in brazil they would move. instead of having them on the ground or maybe down in the bushes, you would have the snakes in the trees above us, worried about whether you're going to grab a branch and knock one down on top of you and get hit. if you don't get medical attention within six hours you're going to die. >> we are seeing some of your adventures now. in addition to the snakes and there are a lot of them, what are the dangers you guys face out there? >> heat exhaustion, i was hit by that, dealing with the tropical storms that we had out there. we had lightning bolts blow up above the boat. we had a superstructure on our speedboat and nobody has ever -- not very many people have seen what happens when a lightning strike hits a boat and it's like having a mortar go off in a boat. we were lucky on some of the dangers we were confronted with. >> and you're taking great risks but may be a great reward, we are talking about
millions of dollars worth of inca gold. that's what you're after. >> yes. stolen from the incas in the 15 hundreds, and it was garcia was the portuguese conquistador, gone in there, stolen the gold and his tribe, the indians he had made a deal with actually took him, killed him and took the gold away from him and then it brings in this whole mystery about the jesuits and that's the answer we are looking for in this great mystery. >> we are talking about caves, deep ocean diving, extreme temperatures, have you had any close calls? >> we had quite a few and some of them are captured. sometimes we didn't have a camera running. there was one situation where i looked at the director and said, did you catch that? did you have a gopro going on now? because that was more dangerous than the last thing we almost got hit by. >> must feel good to come home to san francisco, then. >> yes. very relaxing. i have family here, lived here since 1977, i graduated from carl monte high school in belmont and i now live in
alaska but i have my family that i come and visit every year. >> you left your heart here, as they say. >> yes. >> cork graham, thank you for joining us this morning. good luck to you in your hunt. if you would like to see how the treasure hunt winds up you can see more of cork graham's team on the discovery channel friday nights at 10:00. back to you guys. >> deadly vipers. >> that's right. >> i don't know. >> that sounds something up your alley, though. the adventure part of it. >> adventure, maybe. >> that's you. i saw the hiking and climbing, that made me think of you. >> that sounds fun as long as weren't deadly vipers. are you with me, rosemary? >> i'm afraid of bugs. >> i like outdoors, adventures, i don't like deadly vipers. >> no control. i do like this nicer weather. >> don't we all? >> yes, it's been a nice change that came our way, came yesterday for many of us, our inland communities cooled off by 10 degrees or so so that was
