11:06 am
accusations very seriously. more than three months after a deadly limo fire on the san mateo bridge, investigators say no criminal charges will be file and hearing newly released 911 tapes from the tragic accident. the chp says mechanical problem is to blame for the may 4th limo fire that killed five nurses who were trapped in back. the catastrophic failure of the suspension system allowed the drive shaft to come into contact with the bottom of the car, causing friction to ignite the carpets in the limo. one of the rear doors had the child lock engaged, preventing it from being opened from the inside. the public utilities commission is fining the limo operator $7500 for having more than the passengers that should have been allowed in that limo. in a little more than a week from now the bay brim will be shut down completely to traffic. it is a five-day closure over labor day weekend that will allow crews to switch traffic

from the old eastern span to the brand new one. nbc bay area's bob redell live in the bay bridge with a closer look at how they are planning on doing just that. good morning, bob. >> reporter: good morning to you you laura. cal tran just briefed us on this closure as you're well aware. they will be shutting down the bay bridge, this will be wednesday, august 28th, 8:00 at night, not to be reopened until the following tuesday, 5:00 in the morning. this would be the day after labor day. cal trans needs to shut down the bridge to put finishing touches on both ends of this new bridge before opening it to the world. here the oakland touch down, past the toll plaza, they need to reeye line these barriers, traffic barriers, they also need to grind new paths into the road then repave and restripe those paths and there's also some touchup painting, if you look at the suspension span, which is well beyond our distance right here. they have to do some touchup paint there. at the transition to the tunnel, the yorba buena island tunnel, realign barriers, do restriping, demolish part of the old
11:08 am
approach to make way for a new bike path. the reason why cal tran needs to shut down the bridge for so long is because of the paving and painting that kind of work just needs time to solidify and dry. >> i would say there's a nervous energy but everyone is very confident that this work is going to be getting done. i would say, this is important critical work to connect the work and open it to the public. we have done much more complicated work during past closures. back in 2009, we rolled in and rolled out massive steel deck sections to connect in the s curve that weighed roughly 3200 tons, about 150 feet in the air. >> now, once the new bay bridge is open, there's still work that needs to be done, most of it aesthetic, like the lights. they are hoping to have those up and opened, turned on by the opening two weeks from today but they are not sure there's also some landscaping issues and permanent fix for the broken bulbs, story we have been covering ongoing. hope to have that fix, sat in
11:09 am
place by december. again they reassure us even though the bolts are broken, they do have a temporary fix and that the bridge is going to be structurally sound and seismically safe when it opens two weeks from today. now the new bridge will requite alignments that will end up for a new driving experience for commuters. caltrans will be releasing animations of these new configurations so drivers can visualize what to expect before the bridge opens, before they start driving across the bridge two weeks from today, after all these year, supposed to be open. live here at the easterned 2 it had, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> the countdown is on. thank you, bob. students head back to school, san jose police department reinstating a program looking for kids that skip class. the tabs program was dropped last year to put more officers on the streets. starting today that program's back in business with the opening of a tabs processing center at pal stadium in east san jose. one full-time officer and one to two additional officers per

11:17 am
your best friend when you and your car get into an argument with a tree. the more crumpling, the safer you are. so, officially, not the safest car on the road. but the engineers say when you really look at the data, yes, it is. back to you. >> talk about flag safe, scott. people not allowed to go into the waters at stinson beach in marin county now because of great white shark sighting. no swimmers or surfers will be allowed over the next five days. meanwhile, biologists are trying to figure out who drove a young whale to beach itself on stinson beach. a pair of joggers found the 42-foot-long fin whale yesterday morning, still breathing and struggling in the sand that whale died before biologists from the marine mammal center arrived. many of the 200 people gathered on the beach say they were heartbroken. the county is planning to dig a pit and bury the whale at the beach. take a look at this it's a youtube video giving new meaning to shock and awe a firefighting plane in canada helped to put out flames of a vehicle fire.

thank you for that please, if you're going to get us video or pictures, we love sharing it, make sure you do it from a safe place. the other side, you see alameda lit up like a christmas tree last night. it was just an active evening and we are fair game for more of the same. it's really hard to dictate where these thunderstorms are going to develop and how long they're going to last, but tonight, we are expecting more of that activity you at least over the western facing slopes surrounding san jose. we still have a very, very humid and unstable air mass overhead. show you exactly what's causing all this active weather in just a moment. i set your radar back for six hours. you can see just this morning, it continues offshore. they are also getting quite a bit of rainfall to our north in the chico, redding area, not this time, real doppler radar, starting to wind down a little bit, a lot of activity coming down over the ocean. as we head throughout the afternoon and continue to accumulate that daytime heating, we are fair game for more thunderstorms. this is what we are working with. head throughout the evening
11:20 am
hours, mostly the western-facing slopes surrounding san san jose, could see strong storms develop f that is the case, we could see it push into the valley, san jose, morgan hill, san martin, keep your guard up, eye to the sky, once you see those cumulonimbus towers filled, you know the thunderstorms are definitely possible. offshore, the case as well, in case you have mariner interests, keep that in mind. highs today are running cooler in some cities, running five to ten degrees cooler like fairfield, for example, we will be out of the triple digits today, 94 there, 87, concord, 85 in san jose. as long as this little cutoff low just cities and spins, it looks like we are going to continue to see that humid air mass wednesday into thursday and then finally, not quite as humid for friday or saturday. we will be back to average, hopefully resuming that dry heat. we just need something to push this cutoff low in. attachment of the jetstream. right now, doesn't look like it is going any where mean he is the humidity stays with us tuesday, wednesday, at least the first part of thursday.
