tv Today in the Bay NBC October 1, 2014 6:00am-7:01am PDT
address a growing problem nationwide. just as we were settling into fall, we're right back to summertime levels today. temps spike a good 10 to 15 degrees, even hotter thursday into friday. and a bit of weekend relief provided by a storm system could get rain out of that system. more on that coming up. just as we're settling into your normal traffic flow across the bay bridge, a fender bender at treasure island. this could be a problem getting into san francisco. we'll track that, coming up. a live look outside. beautiful bay bridge. first day of october. it is also wednesday, 2015. this is "today in the bay." >> announcer: from nbc bay area, this is "today in the bay." >> very good wednesday morn to-ing you. thanks for joining us. i'm laura garcia-cannon. >> i'm sam brock. a warning from the cdc. so they say yesterday's first confirmed ebola case in the u.s. probably will not be the last. the agency now asking airports
to take passengers' temperatures before they get on planes coming from western africa to the united states. "today in the bay's" kris sanchez live with what we know about that patient and the risk. we don't know too much at this point, do we? >> that patient is very sick, he's in critical condition, but he's asking doctors for food and water that that's a good sign. he arrived in dallas from liberia to visit family on september 19th. five days later he went to the hospital but staff did not suspect ebola so he was sent home. then, september 28th, he went back to the hospital by ambulance. he's now in isolation. the ambulance crew that transported him is under quarantine. president obama was briefed by phone by the head of the cdc, who also spoke this morning with the "today" show. he says the dallas patient does not have to become a major health threat in the united states because of the technology that we have to diagnose and treat infections swiftly. he does remind health care
workers that containment begins with vigilance. >> one of the things that we emphasize for any health worker in the country is that if you have someone who has been in west africa in the past 21 days and they've got a fever or other symptoms that might be consistent with ebola, immediately isolate them, get them tested. we've identified 100 people who have that level of concern, we've tested 14 of them, and this was the first individual to test positive. >> remainder worth repeating considering the dallas ebola patient was sick enough to visit the hospital twice before he was diagnosed and isolated. he came from liberia, which has more than 900 active cases and is one of the nation's hardest hit in africa. nigeria to the east has 19. there, the outbreak is considered contained. the health minister there says that it is because of swift action. the cdc director repeats that saying that this is the only
ebola outbreak in history that has now been contained and it's because the action wasn't taken quickly enough. coming up, back live to dallas for more on that patient and how that patient is doing today. sam? >> thank you. good to see the cdc aggressive and proactive here. news of the first confirmed case of ebola in the u.s. is having a direct impact on the stock market as well. shares of several firms working on experimental treatment drugs spiked last night. the biggest mover, tekmira pharmaceuticals jumped 30%. the fda is allowing the company to use its experimental drug on patients with that virus, like for example, richard sacra one of the u.s. doctors infected while working in liberia. he's now recovering. watch much more wikt the director of the cdc this morning after "today in the bay" at 7:00. 6:03. family of the giant fan beaten
outside dodger stadium in 2011 has filed a new lawsuit against the dodgers. claiming the team's trying to recoup $3 million in insurance payment for medical care. the dodgers and insurer demanding money paid out of $18 million awarded to the stow family over the summer. stow suffered a traumatic brain injury when beaten by two fans in the parking lot outside dodger stadium three years ago. he's expected to need treatment for rest of his life. more details now. recall in july, a jury ordered the dodgers to pay stow nearly $15 million, $14 million for economic loss because stow will never work again. $1.4 million was for pain and suffering. a growing problem across the country is being hit head on here in the south bay. this morning, anti-human trafficking task force in san jose will set out plans to save
lives on the street and over the internet. stephanie chuang live with a look at what that group is doing this morning. >> reporter: that's right. good morning to you, sam. we'll get the update later from the santa clara sheriff's office. you might think victims come from other countries, a lot are victimized here in hometowns in backyards. in fact, the bay area has been pinpointed as a major hub for human trafficking. that's why you've got this task force at hand at work. that's according to the fbi. which by the way puts the bay area as one of the top 13 places for sex and labor trafficking. sex trafficking gets a lot of attention but a lot of domestic servitude out there as well. the fastest growing organized criminal industry in the world valued at $32 billion. in june, the santa clara board of supervisors approved spending $850,000 to put sheriff sergeant, two deputies, plus an attorney and criminal
investigator to really combat the problem from investigating suspicious behavior and businesses, seeing it through putting criminals behind bars. we will get that update on what the team has beenably to do. experts say, 40% of trafficking victims on the west coast are trafficked through the bay area because of the major harbors and airports, and that is why earlier this year we also had congressman mike honda partnering with local groups to host training classes at san jose for airport and airline employees to spot young victims. a lot of work being done collectively here in the bay area. now coming up in our next report in 45 minutes, how levi's stadium plays into the conversation. it's a topic here. live in san jose, stephanie chuang, "today in the bay." >> no question, an international problem, thank you. it is 6:06. locally, palo alto homeowners are on high alert after a string of recent break-ins. police say at least 15 homes have been targeted this month in
one area south of embarcadero road to the mountain view border. police have released a sketch of a possible suspect but not sure if the same person is behind every break-in. 6:07. we take a peek outside. we know what that is, the bay bridge. so many commuters ready to go to work. a check of traffic coming up. first, let's find out how it looks outside. could be a bit of a warm-up right now. >> yes. you know, we don't have low clouds out there this morning. and so right when that sun comes out this morning, rapid warming right off the bat. i almost said straight out the gate and right out the bat at the same time. you know what i'm getting at. my mind is on other things. the giants game, such a big one for us, unfortunately oaktober. we'll have a report coming up as
we do right here on "today in the bay." "today in the bay" going to be hot, i've got to tell you. temperatures spiking by 10, 15 degrees. starting out in 50. we'll end up with widespread 80s. tomorrow trade those in for 90s, even triple digits on the way to the hot spots as we cut off cooling clouds. 87 south bay. the same for the peninsula. that's what happens, we get uniform temps when we don't have that ocean air moving in. you're going to be in 80s in san francisco for today. talking about 91 in the tri-valley. 82 in oakland, getting into the mid-80s in fremont for today. north bay's going to be warm as well. 90 today, closer to the triple digits as we finish off the week. you want to keep that in mind. here what happens i'm concerned about, obviously, it gets hot in your inland valley spots. we have climate control more or less. people in san francisco don't have air conditioners so we are working towards a very warm
night. asphalt and concrete, it absorbs the sun, retains it long after the sun goes down so let's talk about something cool. you've got 82 degrees in the forecast high in san francisco today. 86, meanwhile, in mill valley, 12 miles away, as the crow flies. watch what happens overnight because we have that heat radiating out from the asphalt, temperatures go to-iing to be m more mild. same for oakland. balmy tonight but we do have heat relief. we'll talk about that coming up. mike and your drive. >> good knowledge. urban heat. bay bridge incline, smooth drive towards the treasure island tunnel. westbound taillights about the tou, fender bender. it looks like it slows down, it's an optical illusion. traffic moves smoothly without any backup. watching for activity new york flashing light but was on the
chp sensor. toll plaza, expect a slow down, if there is any further problem. the span maintaining a smooth drive. here, the maps, berkeley curve, off of 580, 24, east shore freeway a steady flow past university. not so bad. slowdown around treasure island is starting to clear. they must have moved the vehicles. but we'll wait for the all-clear. smooth drive around the bay. 880 through hayward and fremont. south bay not a major problem. san jose 101, 680, slow spot for the south bay. gentle build. starting up in 20 minutes we should see volume increase. and the tri-valley slowing through dublin, folks out of the central valley and bay area, that's there. >> you can't change that, can you? >> we'll try. maybe we'll get a big overpass. >> altamont pass. 6:10. help is on the way to san jose. new police substation ready to
today's top stories. a man in isolation in texas, the first ebola patient diagnosed here in the united states. visiting family for more than a week before put into isolation for treatment. the cdc is concerned about the people that he had contact with after he became sick. residents of the small southern california town waking up in shock this morning, after

news" is describing as, quote, soft opening. if you're not aware the substation has been sitting nearly empty for the past four years when the city cut the rib on the facility in 2010, it did not have money to staff with regular officers. if you're well aware, low staffing has been an issue for the department for a number of years. and hence the reason the substation will be staffed with community service officers who are cheaper to hire. the downside, community service officers are trained to just handle lower level calls, ideally freeing up the full officers for the more serious issues, not clear when the south substation will be fully operational in that sense. when it is, councilman who represents the district believes it could save the department as much as a half million a year in decreased travel costs and decrease response times in south bay, why this was built in the first place. reporting live here, south san jose, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> thank for the update.
minimum wage in berkeley going up to $10 an hour starting today. increase marks step one in a three-part series of increases. october 1st of next year the minimum wage will rise to $11 an hour. october 1st of 2016 will it make a final jump to $12.53. amazon feuding with publishers over prices. >> it's been harder to get certain books and movies for preorder. scott mcgrew joining us. amazon pressuring publishers and consumers get squeezed in the process. >> started with a publisher and expanded to disney. amazon making it hard forrer movie fans to preorder disney movies. cnbc says disney and amazon may have worked out their fight. amazon still fighting with the publisher, annoying congressman paul ryan who has a new book out. ryan last month complained his
book was not available for preorder on amazon. "new york times" points out a couple hours later, pops back up on amazon. you can order it no problem. not the truth for other authors who are not congressmen from wisconsin. it's the first day of the fourth quarter. the dow closed september with the worst performance since july. the nasdaq, worst score since april. we get auto sales data today. european union issued a problem report, accusing ireland of unfair practices when it comes to taxing apple. apple's overseas headquarters, the accusations are complicated but eu says the deal is too cozy and state support of a private company. the u.s. senate looked into apple's tax practices in ireland. the permanent subcommittee on investigations raises concern that apple keeps its money offshore to avoid american taxes. apple's tim cook says it pays
tacks it owes. companies are supposed to try to save money and maximize profit. minimize their liabilities. so long as they stay within the rules which apple and for that matter ireland says they do. >> fair enough. part of the argument, why some want to see corporate tax lower. >> to bring that money back instead of keeping it over there. >> thank you, scott. it appears that it is safe to say right now americans are addicted to watching tv shows and movies. >> this is amazing. there's a report out from the diffusion group it found netflix subscribers watch more than 5 billion hours of tv and movies in just three months. that's triple the amount compared to 2011. researchers found the average u.s. subscriber watches nearly 50 hours per month. that's a lot of your life. >> it is. new shows on netflix doing gang busters now. >> people binge watch.

"today in the bay's" kris sanchez why the head for the centers of disease control says it does not have become an epidemic. >> the good news, the city of dallas says three members of the dallas ambulance crew that transported that man with ebola tested negative for the deadly virus. the bad news is they are working to confirm whether or not there is a second case if that city. the city working on that right now. "today in the bay's" ron mott live from dallas with more on the first patient. folks are asking the question, if the cdc recommendation is that anyone who has been to africa in 21 days prior to reporting a fever, that they be
monitored for ebola and diagnosed. the hospital sent that man home first time they showed up. are they talking about that at all in. >> reporter: i mean, that's a lot of questions, about his treatment here on friday. to set the stage, he came into the country to visit family in dallas september 20th, four days later complained of illnesses. came to the hospital here, sat in the e.r. friday 26th. they sent him home with antibiotics and he came back here when his condition worsened sunday and admitted and isolated. three workers, the ambulance who transported him, they have been isolated, tested, negative so far but they have to be retested because of the incubation period of ebola can go up to 21 days. there is word about the second case, no confirmation at this point. the cdc has a team of specialists watching his condition going forward but going to be tracing any contacts, close contacts of anyone in this area had with this man since september 20th
once they identify the folks they want to get those folks into medical facility to be tested and monitored as well for probably up to two or three weeks. the cdc careful to tell people, not panic, because we have a stronger health care system here in the united states, they believe they can get on top of any isolated case here and there and contain it to that one facility. back to you. >> thank you, ron. certainly the first people who will be monitored will be family members who he came here to visit from liberia that's where the man came from. passengers there, when they depart the country, have their temperatures taken before they leave the ground and then once again when they land. the head of the cdc says that the man was not sick at that point and, thus, not contagious during his travel. only four days after he arrived in dallas. president obama was briefed by phone by the head of the cdc who also spoke this morning with the "today" show. dr. tom friesen says over ebola outbreak up to now has been
contained because of swift action. renewing the remainder, watch for risk factors. >> one of the things that we emphasize for any health worker in the country is that if you have someone who has been in west africa in the past 21 days and they've got a fever or other symptoms consistent with ebola, isolate them, get them tested. we've identified 100 people who that have level of concern, tested 147 this is the first individual to test positive. >> that number likely to rise now that the man has been diagnosed in dallas. the cdc team is on the ground in dallas right now as ron mentioned, working on treating that patient who is in isolation in critical condition, asking for food and water, a good sign. the three-member ambulance crew that transported him tested negati negative, they'll be monitor for the next 21 days and the family members tested as well.
under specific conditions including bodily -- contact with bodily fluids when that person is sick, so right now we're not talking about a full-blown epidemic, just a lot of abundance of caution. hear more from the head of the cdc "today," also monitoring a press conference in three hours. the governor of texas expected to speak coming to dallas. >> clearly, the protocol by the cdc, adhering to procedures so critical. switch gears right now. check the microclimate forecast. 6:48. wow, look at that live look outside. not a cloud in the sky in the city by the bay. but temperatures are going to creep up today. >> especially in the city where a lot of people don't have air-conditioning units, unfortunately. i have to tell you, it's only going to be a couple of days and we'll see the heat ease as we get into the weekend. next week we are right back with
a slight chance for showers and a much better chance for the following week. still watching 13 through 16 of the beautiful month of october which we kicked off today. good morning to you, san francisco. a pretty day shaping up for you. it's going to be warm tone and as we get into the next couple of nights. temperatures creeping up. make sure you break out that fan or something to keep you cool. the good news is because our days are getting shorter, heat is not being absorbed for as long throughout the pavement, concrete across the bay area. that's good news. you don't have it radiating out because days are not as long so we're not getting as many hours of direct sunlight. today, temperatures creeping up to the tune of 10 to 15 degrees in some cases. that means return of the mid-80s, even a couple of 90s as our winds shift offshore. this is kind of dangerous. when it comes to fire danger,
we're going to dry out quickly as our wind direction is moving from land to sea, as you know, the predominant flow off the ocean. that brings in clouds every morning. i'm not breaking news to you, breaking news with that information. but something that you might not know. i know how smart you are here in the bay area. we're going to get really clean waves with that change in the wind direction. so this is what happens. as that wind moves from land to sea, it hollows out the barrel of the wave. so offshore flow blows toward the face of the wave. we're going to get clean wave, even bigger waves on the way, as we get northwest swells towards the end of the weekend. look at beach temperatures. talking about mid-80s. all across the board. it's going to be warm out there. even warmer for tomorrow. by friday, peak warmth at 94. that's triple digit territory for the tri-valley. we'll be in the low 90s for the weekend. heat starts to break as we head through sunday. and, yeah, look at this, monday into tuesday, temperatures
