6:01 am
temperature swings from morning lows to afternoon highs. no breeze but at least it's a little milder by 7:00. low to mid-80s. at the coast, 58 right now but 81 by noon. flirting with 90 this afternoon. back to near 70 by 7:00. leyla? >> mike, we do have a really serious crash here in antioch. it's involving a vehicle that's overturned. sounds like the driver that was in the vehicle has been pulled out, but they are going to require an ambulance. now that car is reportedly exploding. so there's possible fuel spill here as well. eastbound side of highway 4 at laurel road. very serious conditions. we're already starting to see delays. do expect to see some delays growing. there's plenty of surface streets you can use as alternates to get you back on to highway 4 if you need to make it both in the eastbound and westbound directions. certainly westbound very slow. >> thank you, leyla. now back to breaking news we first told you about on twitter overnight. a water main break has flooded half a dozen san francisco
6:02 am
homes. abc 7 news reporter tiffany wilson joins us live from the bay view district. how's it looking right now, tiffany? >> reporter: well, matt, the situation is improving, but crews still have a long way to go. if you look over my shoulder, up the hill to where there's a truck parked up there, that's the focus right now. it's very close to where the pipe broke. two pumps are working to evacuate the water in the sink hole that was created by the water main break. once they're able to access the pipe, they will start doing repairs. the public utilities commission says it was a 12-inch water main installed in 1953 that ruptured around midnight. water gushed down keith street and flooded the basements and garages of half a dozen homes. family members tried to make impromptu barriers with pieces of wood. the fire department also created a barrier of sand and asphalt to help redirect the water into strorm drains. the cleanup and repair process is expected to take hours. >> so we're going to open up the pavement, expose the pipeline
6:03 am
that broke, and take a look and see what type of fix is needed. we are estimating about three blocks that will be without water service while we're doing the repairs. we also have crews coming out to assist the homeowners that did have damage to help clean out their homes. they should be out here within the next hour or two. >> never seen nothing quite like it before. it's interesting. i don't even know what it is. pipe must have broke or something. nerve seen nothing quite like it in my life. >> reporter: it certainly was an unexpected and unwelcome surprise for residents in this area. the video you're looking at right now shows a car that was parked directly over the water main break. a sink hole started to form around it. so crews had to call in a tow truck to remove that car. if you come back out live to the scene here, you can see water is still flowing right around that car. fortunately, the flow has been slowed down enough that the water is going directly into the drain. however, if you have to drive
6:04 am

6:06 am
treatment. meanwhile in dallas, residents of the first american resident diagnosed are being held under armed guard. the family hosted thomas eric duncan, an african man now known as patient zero. >> they cannot come out. they are not even allowed to come on the porch. >> reporter: duncan's nephew, joe weeks, said his uncle arrived to attend a family graduation. it was weeks who called the cdc after a dallas emergency room nurse sent duncan home despite showing symptoms and admitting that he had traveled from west africa. >> i was terrified, scared, worried. >> reporter: disease detectives now in a race to answer one question, how many people might duncan have infected while contagious? he's in isolation now at this dallas hospital, but the cdc is tracking a widening circle of 100 people who could be at risk. warnings going by phone to more than 11,000 residents. >> while this may be concerning, there is no ongoing danger to
