behind. temperatures today some 80s and 90s inland. 70s inside the bay and some 60s along the coastline. out the door the low clouds have pushed inside the bay temperatures in the 50s and 60s but as we head toward the afternoon, up to about 88 in livermore, 81 in san jose, 74 in oakland and 69 in san francisco. all right. let's check the roads with elizabeth. thank you, lawrence. at 5:07 all is quiet on the roads right now. we have a couple of things going on later this evening though that could cause some traffic jams. we have the giants playing over at at&t. that starts at 7:15. take on philadelphia. then an oakland raiders preseason game over by the oakland coliseum. that starts at 7:00. so again, 101, 880, all around the bay area, kind of in addition to the usual evening commute home you have a couple of bigger games going on. so just a heads up. for right now, though, like i said, here a live look at the bay bridge toll plaza. looks good. they even cleared out those earlier delays in some of the far left cash lanes. and now it looks good no delay on the sensors at all between the incline and treasure island. and outside we go.

drop the "weapon" and when she pointed the object at them, they opened fire. it was a hand-held drill painted black. the atmosphere has changed in ferguson, missouri where violent protests followed the killing of a black teenager by a white police officer. the protests took a different tone last night after missouri's governor took ferguson police off the streets. he put the missouri highway patrol in charge and its leader marched arm in arm with some of the protestors. >> we're a community. we're all a part of that community and we're all in it together. >> some of the protestors praised the state police force for treating them with respect. earlier this week, the local police had used tear gas and smoke bombs to try to control crowds. president obama took a break from his vacation in massachusetts to comment on the situation in missouri. >> there is never an excuse for violence against police or for those who would use this tragedy as a cover for vandalism or looting. there's also no excuse for
5:10 am
police to use excessive force against peaceful protests on to throw protestors in jail for lawfully exercising their first amendment rights. >> the president called for peace and calm in ferguson. in dozens of cities across the country moments of silence held yesterday for people killed by police. a gathering at frank ogawa plaza in oakland and in san francisco's civic center plaza, people held up their hands, a growing symbol of the killing in ferguson. >> what about these people's freedom or humanity? but nobody is saying anything about that. >> people in more than 90 cities took part. the prime minister of iraq is stepping down under intense international pressure. susan mcginnis reports on what the resignation could mean for iraq's future. reporter: the white house is commending iraqi prime minister nouri al-maliki for
5:11 am
his decision to step down. he hands the reins to rival haider al-abadi. malachy's shiite dominated government was blamed for deepening the rift that allowed isis militants to advance. the power shift comes as the u.s. called off plans to rescue religious minorities trapped on a mountaintop in iraq. that operation could have put hundreds of american troops on the ground. instead, u.s. air strikes and air drops of supplies were found to be effective. >> because these efforts, we do not expect there to be an additional operation to evacuate people off the mountain. and it's unlikely that we're going to need to continue humanitarian air drops on the mountain. >> reporter: that aid has helped many of the more than 1.5 million people displaced by islamic state militants but even those who escaped say they still need help. this man tried to lead his family from the mountain to safety only to see his mother die from lack of food and water and exhaustion. he said, we refused to leave without her. after a few hours of thirst,

early next year. not only did people have trouble getting into the venue they have trouble getting out some people stuck in their cars until 2 a.m. but the show itself getting rave reviews. >> ooo i need your love, babe ♪ guess you know it's true ♪ >> reporter: fans loved the sold-out show. it lasted about 3 hours. mccartney played all the beatles classics, including many of the songs they played at their final concert. also here at candlestick back in 1966. but this is the scene a lot of people will remember about last night's concert. traffic gridlock outside the stick. some folks never even got to the concert after being stuck in traffic not being able to find a parking spot. a lot of them gave up and went home. >> all the drivers are angry. >> i know. 8:00 and there's no control. excuse me. no one actually managing the traffic. the blow is really difficult to get -- the flow is really
5:33 am
difficult to get in and out of any of the lanes. it's just a mess. >> reporter: a lot of frustrated drivers got word that there was no parking, on a radio announcement after the concert had already begun. but we found several empty spaces in parking lots around candlestick. it sounds like a lot of miscommunication. of course, this is all moot because this was the last big hurrah here at candlestick park. it is scheduled for demolition late this year or early next year. >> well, anne, after that demolition, what's next for the property? >> reporter: a big 10-year project will begin. restaurants, shops, and about 6,000 homes moving into this property. a multi-billion-dollar project. live at candlestick park, anne makevoc, kpix 5. >> this sunday, candlestick's former tenant the 49ers will play their first preseason game at their new santa clara stadium. kpix 5 will broadcast the game this sunday. our countdown to kickoff coverage begins at noon with a pre-game edition of kpix 5 news
5:34 am
live from levi's stadium. the game starts at 1:00 and that's followed by the "5th quarter." and then another special edition of kpix 5 news live from the stadium at 5:00. possibly biggest logistical question is, will there be enough parking? kiet do get looks at whether it's even possible to park in surrounding neighborhoods away from official stadium lots. reporter: how far would you walk to avoid paying for parking at levi's stadium? a couple of blocks maybe? how about a full mile? when the quakes played at levi's stadium two weeks ago, fans invaded the california impressions subdivision which is across the guadalupe river in, that's right, the city of san jose, and took up all 132 curb-side parking spots. one of the cars blocked rob's driveway. >> i said you got to be kidding me. >> reporter: yes, he called a tow truck. it turns out fans gladly walked
5:35 am
20 minutes back to the stadium climbing over two overpasses and covering a whole mile. >> that is surprising. a mile is a long distance. >> reporter: laura wells with the san jose department of transportation says they have installed the 30 by 30-inch signs at each entrance prohibiting stadium parking. the department of transportation wants to take a slow cautious approach instead of going in heavy-handed with roadblocks and expensive tickets. >> we want to try measures that have the at least impact on residence -- that have the least impact on residents and the guests so we're hopeful by installing the signage, to discourage fans from parking in the neighborhoods. >> that's ridiculous. >> reporter: robby wants menacing looking signs like these in santa clara that threaten to tow your car. he says the ones near his house won't cut it. so you don't think those signs are going to work? >> i hope they will but i don't trust it because it's 13, 14 feet high. it's too high on the pole and i don't believe any driver is going to look up 13 feet and crash into somebody. it just makes no sense to me at
5:36 am
this point. >> we're going to try this for now and monitor it and see how it goes. >> reporter: so the department of transportation says when they go in with heavy-handed tactics first with expensive tickets the problem is homeowners and friends and families get the tickets so they say let's take these baby steps. be patient. and like everybody else, they are figuring this out as they go along. back to you. >> kiet, will there be increased parking patrols in the area around the stadium on sunday? >> reporter: yeah. so the san jose department of transportation say they will send out extra staffers to monitor the situation. also, santa clara has promised that they will fly over their helicopter and they will make some aerial observations on that area, as well. we're live this santa clara. kiet do, kpix 5. >> boy, i always think the best seat in the house is right on your couch. [ laughter ] >> no kidding. that's true. >> how many of those people down there how many of the homeowners, are going to sell parking on their front lawn? >> i think a lot of people will make some money. we have some changes coming
5:37 am
