huge waves and dangerous rip currents as jeff said. michelle roberts is live in santa cruise. you caught up with at least one surfer today who was torsed around and struggling big time. >> reporter: he was a beginner, got in over his head. it can be deceiving. some of these waves don't look big. right now things look fairly calm although every now and then a major wave will come in and take out even some of the best surfers out there. andrew didn't want to miss this. >> there's a good one, a big one. >> reporter: each set rolling into lighthouse point in santa cruz is another opportunity for that perfect shot. >> you look for waves to develop and guys who look like they're paddling hard and trying to be first on the wave. >> reporter: some swells are bigger than others. >> it's calm right now. >> reporter: peel like earl. before today he'd never tried to catch waves this big. >> wave came in, pushed me into the cliff. >> reporter: waves as high as 13 feet plowed into the coastline.

6:03 pm
911 response times goals for more than a year. not only is it a public safety problem but a financial issue. all this started with our investigation. nbc's robert honda got a lack at this audit that's raising eyebrows. >> reporter: there are a lot of surprises in this confidential draft report. and some of the findings show just what happens when a big city fire department is cut to the bone. the san jose fire department is in a five-year contract with santa clara county to provide first responder services to 911 emergency medical calls. the department agreed to respond to at least 90% of calls in under eight minutes. but the county stopped paying in february after calculating the fire department failed to meet response times consistently. capped by 18 straight months from may 2013. the audit was launched after nbc bay area's investigative unit revealed response time failures were even worse than numbers released publicly. the audit shows many firefighters complained about basic tools.
6:04 pm
in the midst of silicon valley they say mobile data computers on fire trucks that suggest routes to a call are slow and antiquated and many stations still use old paper maps as well as rely on hand-drawn index cards. this is a map being used at one station, dated 2003. and this is a so-called run card that firefighters read while going full-speed to an emergency. >> it's frustrating as a firefighter to look at a piece of paper that is not up to date, doesn't have the new buildings, new areas, hydrant locations, and rely on that to take care of citizens. >> reporter: the audit indicates police staffing shortage slows down responses especially when a crime scene needs to be cleared before medical personnel can proceed. you haven't seen the audit. are you glad that this is coming out and that it was done? >> i am glad. i think it will shed some light on some of our deficiencies. we've known that our system is archaic, yet we've been able to take steps to update our mapping system. >> reporter: some officials

6:17 pm
community came together immediately after the disaster. >> most of the responders that were committed to helping the citizens of napa and vallejo were victims themselves. and yet they were out there committed to helping the people and doing their jobs. several people i talked to in the city and county government didn't know what the status of their homes were. >> napa city officials say there are still 160 red-tagged buildings. president obama has declared the quake a major federal disaster. officials say state relief has been held up by lack of information from fema about eligibility. estimated damage from the napa quake $1 billion. heavy metal is no longer slowing traffic on the bay bridge. traffic is moving much better tonight now that cal trance has removed those trouble-making steel plates. we've been showing you how they've been slowing traffic as drivers really reduce their speed when approaching those steel plates. they were installed just last
6:18 pm
week on the upper deck of the bridge to cover expansion joints which are due for replacement. now cal trance is postponing that work while it reconsiders a substitute for those metal plates. money, brains and creativity. that's what governor brown says california is going to need to grapple with climate change and water management. and it's just going to get tougher. >> we're going to have even more difficult tests. so with that vote yes on proposition 1. >> the november ballot measure that would provide over $7 billion for water infrastructure. brown spoke at stanford university which horsted a water policy forum. credit tibs of prop 1 say there are better ways to spend the money on water resources. take a look at this, it looks nice to see rain. time lapse video of the storm rolling into san jose. we sped up the video from weave our live cameras so you can see the sunshine to clouds and then

6:20 pm
camera network. the other thing, temperatures, it was hard for a lot of the bay area to get out of the 60s today. right now we are still of course in the 60s. the north bay right now averaging 64. a few sprinkles in the tri-valley and also for the south bay. now through tomorrow's forecast you're going to notice some large differences here. not only sunnier and drier weather but hotter as well. we'll average mid 70s in the north bay. also for the tri-valley 75 degrees. for the south bay 72. coming up in that full forecast we'll talk more about two more systems and how much rainfall they can bring us in about 20 minutes. still ahead, the countdown is on. just two weeks to go. the san jose mayor's race. new numbers reveal how wide open this race still is. trusted to lead? tonight we investigate reports that a local chancellor broke the rules.

6:22 pm
6:23 pm
15 days until election day. the san jose mayoral race is wide open according to the latest poll. nbc bay area's political analyst larry gersten is with us. tell us about the poll. >> it's interesting, the poll conducted by san jose state for "the "san jose mercury news"" shows dave cortese leading liccardo 34% to 26%. but 40% remain undecided. interesting, this is a virtual replica of the june primary when cortese came in with 33%, liccardo 25%. but in the june election, the rest of the vote went to the other candidates. now it's just there as an undecided mass. >> so what happens now? how do we account for such a high undecided vote? >> good question. it has to do with the method used to define "likely" voters.
6:24 pm
the survey asked respondents if they voted in one of the past four elections. typically likely voters are determined by whether they voted in the last three or four elections. as such the findings include a lot of casual voters. which helps explain the large percentage of undecideds. we know casual voters don't make up their minds until the end and that's if they vote at all. >> let's put the poll aside. what's it going to take for one of these two to win this. >> it's going to be fun. this looks to be a low turnout rate in a low turnout election which means every vote counts. mobile i'd is the base is most important. that's where reliable supporters are. what do we do? look for liccardo to appeal to those who like his support of measure "b," the pension reform plan, passed two years ago. and its impact on reducing the city's costs. look for cortese to appeal to those who worry about increased crime due to the departures of hundreds of officers because of measure "b" and the cost to the
6:25 pm
city's safety. so it's a matter of competing approaches if you will. efficiency versus public safety. with the voters ultimately deciding which issue is most important and we won't know that for a couple of weeks. >> it's the bay area's biggest city, thank you larry. supreme court justice us sonia sotomayor was on the campus of san jose state speaking to a sold-out crowd. the topic was her memoir "my beloved world" based on sotomayor's journey from the bronx projects to the nation's highest court. the justice and author talked about her experiences can kidly. at one point reminding the audience she sees her memoir as therapy. she also had some advice for students. >> don't go through college and law school the way we did. slow yourself down enough to really talk to people about who they are inside of themselves. that is really, really something
6:26 pm
i regret. >> sotomayor is the first latino u.s. supreme court justice, serving since august 2009. still ahead, she's the call girl accused in the death of a google executive. her attorneys have a new defense for what led up to that deadly dose of heroin. you know, i know you're an expert at headlines. and i know where you're trying to get. and you're not going to get that headline from me. >> she's the chancellor of a major bay area community college district. making headlines with decisions she made with her district credit cards. i'm tony kovaleski. we investigate next. i'm marianne favro live in san jose where the south bay's biggest school district is preparing to prevent students from getting the ebola virus. look at all these children. they all lost their lives because of
6:27 pm
6:28 pm
preventable medical errors, now the third leading cause of death.
6:29 pm
only heart disease and cancer take more lives. proposition 46 will save lives with drug and alcohol testing to make sure impaired doctors don't treat someone you love. safeguards against prescription drug abuse. and holds the medical industry accountable for mistakes. i'm barbara boxer. let's save lives. vote yes on 46. fellow nurses speak out and show their support. the first time we're hearing from those on the front lines of the ebola outbreak at a texas hospital. that's our developing story. the battle against ebola. today nurses in dallas talked publicly. >> their hospital's response to the infected patient who died. >> like we did with h1n1, when we got the message from the public health department that we needed to create isolation areas for children, we would find areas in the office. so it could be the conference
6:30 pm
room and any child that had a fever, any h1n1 symptoms, we would put them into that conference room until the parents came to pick them up. >> the nurses at texas health presbyterian hospital spoke today and showed their support for two co-workers. each contracted ebola after treating thomas duncan, the liberian patient who died two weeks ago. quarantine ended for several dozen people who came in direct contact with duncan. they have safely passed the incubation period. we're looking at a bay area school district, taking steps against ebola. marianne favro has that part of the story for us. >> reporter: if you look at this, this is a health prote call for all the schools in the san jose unified school district. it starts right here with the first step. when a student walks into the nurse's office, the first step is to take their temperature.
6:31 pm
schools in the south bay are stepping up control efforts in case a student is diagnosed with pohl virus. san jose unified school district, which has 32,000 students, is taking the same infection control precautions it has always relied on to deal with the flu, whooping cough, and enterovirus. but now it's doing even more. >> if they come into the health office for any reason, skinned knee, elbow, anything, we're going to check their temperature. >> reporter: the district is identifying rooms to isolate sick kids should the county public health department require that. like it did in 2010 to prevent the spread of the h1n1 virus. students have also been instructed to embrace the gold standard of infection control. good old-fashioned hand washing with warm water ask soap. the district is reminding parents to do their part. >> the big message for parents, if your child is sick, keep them home. we have cases where parents need
6:32 pm
to go to work and we understand that, but if your child is running a temperature, keep them home. >> reporter: the child has had a temperature, they must be fever-free for 24 hours without medication before they'll be allowed to return to school. if a child is at school with a temperature of 100 or higher the school will call their mom and dad to pick them up. another court hearing for the high-end call girl charged in the deadly heroin overdose of a google executive. alex tickleman accused of injecting forrest hayes with a lethal dose of heroin last year. hayes died on his yacht in santa krauts harbor. tickleman faces felony manslaughter charges for leaving the boat as hayes lay dying. her attorney calls it an accident. >> my client alex did nothing to mr. hayes that he didn't want to happen to him.
6:33 pm
she did what he asked. two consensual adults engaged in mutual drug usage. it went wrong but it wasn't intended. >> tickleman's next court appearance is scheduled for december. the chancellor of one of the bay area's largest community college districts is answering questions about the use of her district credit card. the issue? plane tickets and cross-country trips with her husband. chief investigative reporter tony kovaleski breaking the story tonight. >> the chance already's had a lot to say but never directly accepted responsibility for her actions. it's about accountability at the highest levels. records we uncovered and the timeline we put together make it clear, the chancellor violated the district's rules. i want to make sure you have every opportunity -- >> and i want to make sure you don't get salacious headlines. >> reporter: right sa cepeda
6:34 pm
serves as chancellor. she's in charge of the san jose evergreen community college district. >> was it a mistake to use the district card to buy plane tickets for your husband? >> you know, i know you're an expert at headlines. and i know what you're trying to get. and you're not going to get that headline from me. >> reporter: she's defending decisions on these expense reports. a december trip in 2011 to attend a holiday party at the white house with president obama. and then a few months later, a conference in orlando. >> this particular incident was a serious problem. >> reporter: maria fuentes is on the district's board of trustees. she was the board president when cepeda submitted that second expense report. >> should chancellor cepeda have known she shouldn't have done this? >> yes, absolutely. >> did that disappoint you as
6:35 pm
the board president, surprise you? >> it was unexpected. it was unexpected. >> reporter: in this memo, obtained by nbc bay area, president fuentes questioned the chancellor's use of district's credit card, pointing out the charges were not for official district purposes. >> the issue here is that we have a policy that prohibits any purchase that is nondistrict related. with the credit card. >> reporter: specifically the district's policy states, the procurement card is to be used exclusively for district business purposes. and it's also spelled out in the chancellor's employment contract saying, the chancellor shall not use district credit cards for nondistrict or personal purposes. >> that's my duty and that's how i handled it. >> reporter: trustee fuentes also points to the contradict's recent history. in 2010, independent investigators found
6:36 pm
then-chancellor rosa perez violating district policy. recommendations followed giving trustees greater oversight in supervising the chancellor's budget and travel. how did you react when board president fuentes questioned your transaction? >> i was flabbergasted. >> reporter: these credit card statements show the charges. apparent violations of both district policy and the employment contract. >> airfare two people round trip, and i did a single transaction. i used it as a credit card. and i immediately reimbursed the district for that cost. >> when you say immediately, what does that mean to you? >> well, certainly before the bill even arrived. >> reporter: but that's not what the records appear to show. take a close look. on the second trip, chancellor cepeda purchased her husband's ticket with a district credit card on february 5th. the bill was february 22nd. and the money order to reimburse the district wasn't purchased immediately.
6:37 pm
instead, six weeks later. and on the first trip, she purchased her husband's plane ticket on november 11th. the credit card bill was dated november 22nd. the money order to reimburse the district was again not purchased immediately. the date shows january 10th. >> my question is, what happened here? it tack two months to reimburse one, six weeks on the other -- >> i indicated that it was a matter of submittal of those records by staff. >> with all due respect you're passing the buck. you could have written a check the day after you purchased the tickets and said, here's the money back. it seems like you're taking no accountability here, dr. cepeda. >> i am telling you that i'm a person of integrity who has followed the rules as best as she can. >> chancellor cepeda pointed us to internal reviews that did not find a problem with her violating her contract and district policy. as you heard the chancellor believes she did nothing wrong.
6:38 pm
but this is telling. she did say she no longer uses the district credit card for personal purchases, a move recommended by her auditors. if you have a tip for our investigative unit call 888-996-tips. e-mail theunit@nbcbayarea.com. still ahead, vandals strike a high-end salon and neighbors in this quiet south bay district say it's not the first time. hillary clinton joins some of the most powerful women in politics at a fund-raiser in san francisco today. i'm monte francis. i'll tell you about her urgent message for democrats comes up.
