you can see the hole underneath is about 4 feet. water has been bubbling out of bonita road 24/7 for three years. millions of gallons wasted. kristin rose worries her street and her house could collapse because of the damage underneath. >> this is dangerous! i don't have a choice. i don't have somewhere else. >> reporter: this is video of a private engineer sticking a probe into bonita road. >> right on down. >> the probe goes all the way into the ground. that shows that there is -- there might be a void under the street. >> reporter: richmond engineer andy yun says if it's not fixed, a sinkhole could open. >> it needs to be fixed for sure as soon as possible. >> reporter: christine rose has said the ground dropped inches in the last few months and the house foundation is damaged. >> there is a hole under my foundation and i don't know what's holding up my house anymore. >> reporter: richmond city
6:01 pm
engineers and christine say water company east bay m.u.d. is responsible for the leak. but a spokesman says workers came out three times in the last month and couldn't find the leak. she says this is not an east bay m.u.d. problem. it could be ground water or someone's pipe leaking. >> my neighbors are not that stupid. they are not going to pay a couple of thousand dollars per month on their water bill. >> reporter: richmond also spent thousands to study the leak. it concluded this is treated east bay m.u.d. water. >> i am frustrated! you can't even understand what it's like. >> reporter: christine wants the water company to stop the leak, fix the street and her house. >> this is east bay m.u.d.'s water. quit passing the buck. >> reporter: yeah, we asked east bay m.u.d. several times today but they declined to talk on camera. they say they -- on the phone they say they haven't found any leaks out here and that's why they can't claim responsibility. for now, it's pretty much the city versus east bay m.u.d. and caught in the middle are
6:02 pm
the homeowners and their homes. veronica? >> those homeowners, da, are obviously really upset. this has been going on for three years. the situation looks urgent. couldn't the city just fix it and then charge east bay m.u.d. if it's their water line. >> reporter: i asked them that and richmond city engineers say it's going to cost them a lot of money to dig up all this pavement. they say even though the leaking is happening here, they think even though the water is seeping out right here, they think the leak is coming from somewhere else that could be down there, it could be somewhere up there so they just don't know. they say it's way too costly to dig up the entire street possibly the neighborhood to find where that source is. >> da lin in richmond tonight, da, thank you. we are getting a first look at one of the suspects shot in a botched robbery attempt at a jewelry store. it comes as a second suspect is still on the loose tonight. the trouble started about 1:30 this afternoon at a santa rosa shopping center. police say two armed men entered the bennett valley
6:03 pm
jewelry store and shortly after, gunfire broke out. one of the store employees was also hurt. so was one of the suspects. "pressdemocrat" captured this photo of the injured suspect lying on the ground being treated. the man rushed to the hospital with gunshot wounds. his injuries were said to be life-threatening. his partner got away in a car. chopper 5 video shows what police are calling the getaway car. it didn't get too far. the second suspect left it a couple of blocks from the scene. officers ordered neighbors in the area to stay behind locked doors. they went door to door with police dogs looking to pick up the trail of a man. there are reports that the man was wounded in the robbery. he too may even have been shot and we just learned that police have called off that search. they are still investigating. right now, kpix 5's mark sayre at the scene of a deadly big rig accident in santa clara county. mark, lanes just reopened on highway 17?
6:04 pm
>> reporter: veronica, it took more than nine hours but the chp and caltrans have finally reopened the northbound direction of highway 17. that's also good news for southbound commuters heading out of silicon valley to santa cruz because both lanes are reopened in that direction, as well. now, in all, one person died and seven others were transported to local hospitals in the accident that occurred before 8 a.m. the chp says a big rig hauling a double trailer with dirt lost control coming down from the summit. in all, the chain reaction crash involved 10 cars in addition to the big rig. investigators say the driver did report having brake problems just before the accident. one of the drivers who was hit was visibly shaken up. >> reporter: were you in front of it, behind it, what happened? [ pause ] >> sand truck piled into us plain and simple and it hit the other people, too,. >> reporter: now, around 3:30 this afternoon, crews finally started towing some of the vehicles involved in the crash but it was a long day for
6:05 pm
commuters, who spent hours sitting in traffic as the chp divided those remaining lanes so one lane of traffic could get by in each direction. the name of the trucking company involved was the sany trucking company out of tracy in business for about two months. at this point the chp says it has not even had its initial inspection. reporting live along highway 17, haim mark sayre, kpix 5. -- i'm mark sayre, kpix 5. >> follow us on twitter to get traffic alerts on highway shutdowns as they happen and check realtime traffic maps before heading out the door that's at kpix.com/traffic. new at 6:00 no more monkey business when it comes to parking in san francisco after pressure from city hall. the app monkey parking said today that it is halting its service. monkey parking allows people to auction off public parking spots to other drivers. city attorney says this violates san francisco law.

6:07 pm
culturally insensitive clothing. >> reporter: it all goes back to the giants game on june 24 which was native american heritage night at the ballpark. but when a man in the bleachers showed up wearing a war bonnet, a bit like the one you see here, things got ugly. [ screaming ] >> don't touch me! >> let me go!! >> reporter: the woman you see getting removed by police says she found the man's headdress offensive. but there are conflicting reports as to how she went about confronting him. [ screaming ] >> reporter: regardless, the incident prompted the team to review its policies. >> we just want to ask our fans to be mindful and respectful. >> reporter: so what exactly is disrespectful? truth, the giants don't really have a game plan for that, the truth is. it will be managed on a case-by- case basis, which could get tricky in a park with a lot of fans dressed to turn heads. >> the sombrero i got it custom
6:08 pm
made in cabo san lucas. i have a cuban flag but i'm not a communist. >> you have to follow it to a certain point. >> reporter: but the rules are the rules and for fans that now means keeping cultural sensitivity in mind when heading to the yard. >> being in a culturally sensitive in their attire and language. >> i think it should be fine. >> reporter: to be absolutely clear, this is not the kind of offense like interfering with a game that would get a fan immediately ejected out of the ballpark. what the giants are hoping is that maybe the offensive costume that someone might be wearing can be talked into changing or covering it up so they won't have the nasty confrontation like they did before which started all of these rule changes. reporting live at at&t ballpark, linda yee, kpix 5. big news tonight on the water watch. el nino will likely be back this winter.
6:09 pm
this is a look at flooding from the record el nino of 1997-'98. chief meteorologist paul deanno on whether we'll see an el nino this fall. >> we want the rainfall but not the flooding. a strong el nino typically brings both but here's the deal. el nino is likely to happen this winter but we don't know how strong it's going to be so as of today we still don't know how much rain we are going to get. so it is official, el nino is likely back this winter and looking just through the lens of our drought this could be good news but it's not a guarantee that reservoirs like these will be filled to the top quickly. because not every el nino is created equal. we have weak el ninos, moderate el ninos and strong el ninos. strong el nino winters are by far the wettest. using santa rosa as an example, winter with the strong el nino give us nearly two feet of
6:10 pm
rain. we get 2" less rain with a moderate el nino and weak el ninos are actually below average. and even if el nino gives us a wet winter this winter it's not going to make up the drought all at once. the ground below me has missed out on 2.5 feet of water over the past three years. but we do need to be careful what we wish for. a winter that does erase a big chunk of our drought would likely include scenes like this. the el nino winter of 1997/'98 is the still the stormiest in a generation. el nino is not a guarantee but it is hope after three of the driest years in california's history. there is now a solid chance that we will not see super dry year number 4. >> that's good. >> it is good news. >> you know, let's shoot for right in the middle the median el nino, 2" above normal.
6:11 pm
>> if you could choose your el nino, let's choose moderate because it doesn't give us a huge increase in the likelihood of flooding but it also doesn't give us zero rainfall like we have had over the past couple of years. so it's kind of tough because we want the rain, but who wants flooding? >> we are trying to predict the weather, man. i mean, come on. who would do that for a living? [ laughter ] >> hey. >> sorry. really good point. >> good job. thanks. it is our mission and we will not stop! >> a rapist who attacked more than a dozen bay area women is a free man tonight and his new neighbors are furious. >> trucking down the road with three tons of pot. the dummies stake that got these guys caught. >> and coming up at 6:30, a new twist in the case of the call girl accused of drugging a google executive to death. wait until you hear what happened to her last boyfriend. ,, ,,,,,,

6:15 pm
came. >> reporter: she and others have tried for months to block his arrival. hubbart has admitted to raping 40 women in the '70s and '80s. a bay area judge ordered his release into l.a. county after he was deemed to no longer pose a threat. hubbart must wear a gps ankle bracelet and a program supervisor will accompany him in public for up to the first year. for now, he is also surrounded by private security including this man who told us hubbart is aware of the protests. >> just want to let the guy try to settle in and, you know, just not -- not be stressed out over it. >> reporter: but his new neighbors say they are stressed out by his presence and are vowing to drive him out even if it means changing the laws that let him out in the first place. >> our judicial system failed us and all the powers that be that we tried to call in stopped this, don't -- don't have the power to do it. >> mr. hubbart is under constant supervision, has the
6:16 pm
gps monitoring bracelet 24/7. a group of homeless people living in a large encampment in berkeley is being told to move on. that's the message from city leaders. they say this large gathering of homeless people living under the gilman street overpass has become a public nuisance. garbage is piling up. there is no trash service there and the leftover food and waste is attracting rodents. >> why can't we do that? we keep it clean, it's sanitary and we have bags and they have the potties over there for us so we go to the bathroom. other than that, uhm, yeah, it's a scary thing for the 15. >> july 15th is the date the city says everyone in the encampment must be gone. hundreds of people turned out at san jose city hall today to protest new pot club regulations. >> save our clubs! >> new rules require the dispensaries to grow their own marijuana. pot club owners say that's just
6:17 pm
not practical. they say as many as 70 of the pot clubs would be forced to shut down. protestors say they have collected enough signatures now to get a referendum on the november ballot to reverse the new rules. and this u-haul may look normal on the outside, but what bakersfield police found inside was anything but moving gear. they found this, more than 3.5 tons of weed. estimated street value, about $76 million. police say they found the pot when the driver ran a red light. both he and his passenger were promptly arrested. a 5500-acre wildfire near lake berryessa is now 86% contained. it's been burning since july 4 near the solano yolo county line. nearly 1,000 firefighters are still out there and investigators are still searching for the cause. well, things have quieted down a little around lake berryessa. do we have anything coming up this weekend? >> we just have this extreme fire danger. it's going to be there -- we talk about el nino this winter,
6:18 pm
the more critical thing going on right now is this fire danger which is not going anywhere for the next few months. so we have to smart. and we have to cross your fingers for any rainfall. but it's july and we typically don't see any around here. peek outside, highs from today, did you notice it was cloudy this morning away from the water? did you notice it did not warm up this afternoon? walnut creek 79 degrees. that is about 10 degrees below average. belmont hit 76. point reyes only a high of 60 and saratoga warmest spot that i could find hit 86 degrees. lots going on this weekend. we are taking a look at the sunday street block party at the richmond district in san francisco mainly sunny skies, 65 degrees. your forecast for the richmond district coming up on sunday. got to talk about tonight though because tonight and early tomorrow, we have a pretty high fog factor. that fog is going to push well inland so notice the gray over top of almost the entire bay area. it will clear back to the coast if the afternoon but on a one to five scale, tomorrow's fog factor will be a 4 thanks to a
6:19 pm
stronger onshore flow. now let's talk about why the onshore flow is stronger. low pressure off to our west, big ridge of high pressure over the desert southwest, right in between we find a pretty strong push from the chilly pacific ocean. so that ocean influence continues and once again tomorrow we'll wake up with a lot of cloud cover and temperatures kept down. but by the weekend, once this ridge moves closer to us, it's going to limit the onshore flow. if you have plans to maybe play some golf, go out with the kids, play soccer, anything outdoors, maybe an evening barbecue, thumbs up. weather looking really nice for the weekend. it gets warmer on saturday especially away from the water but tomorrow another relatively chilly day. we won't hit 80 in san jose or concord. 76 napa. 73 santa rosa. i know i'm not talking about as if it's a complaint but it's going to be significantly below normal. san francisco 66 your high tomorrow. we warm up on saturday. we warm up more on sunday back to the 90s inland. the warmest day will be on monday and then the first half of next week, we will stay at or above average. need some rain, not going to
6:20 pm
get any rain. >> hm. >> we have an el nino in the future. >> fingers crossed. >> there we go. >> and really when is that going to start? you're thinking -- about november. so trick or treat with the kids, then let's talk about el nino. >> we can hold on until then. >> i think we can. >> all right, thanks, paul. you won't find any piglets at this year's state fair in sacramento. that's because of a deadly virus across the country called ped and it kills every baby pig that comes down with it. 8million have already died. >> we don't want them to be injured or contract that virus and so they won't be on display. however, we will have some pot- bellied pigs in the petting zoo so folks can see those and we'll have larger pigs which are fun. >> the disease is also causing pork prices to rise. still to come the gift of life returned a decade after one family's tragedy gave another new hope, they are being repaid. remarkable story of giving after the break.

6:39 pm
even though apple did agree to similar controls and a $32 million fine earlier this year. now, the ftc is suing amazon to force it to beef up notices about in-app purchases, require passwords to make them, and make it easier for parents to get refunds for unauthorized charges. amazon reportedly keeps about 30% of that revenue. now, the company says it already meets the requirements of the apple agreement with the ftc and has developed industry leading parental controls. well, a warning tonight about new atm skimmers. they are almost impossible to detect with the naked eye. the slimmed down devices are popping up overseas and they fit inside the atm card slots as opposed to the old ones that were easier to detect because they sat on top of the atms. now, security experts believe they will likely show up here soon since they are not really much use in europe. there they use those chip and p.i.n. technology cards which make it
