riders shopping in the area. it also has a constant influx of tourists for the first time. and many are unfamiliar with the area as they travel will you museum. police are hoping that this new initiative will deter thefts and robberies which can see an up tick at this time of year. like robberies that have occurred in the past week. now you won't see officers at the desk 24/7. but officers will be assigned to spend part of their shift at the desk. i talked to a writer whose name was michael. he said anything that adds police will be a good thing because he's been attacked while riding before. >> there's a lot of people like mentally not stable on bart. this guy just thought i assaulted him or something. and then i just got knocked out. i got injured pretty bad. >> i don't know the solution but

back to our breaking news story on kron 4 with a huge traffic mess on the east bay. a pedestrian hit and killed on northbound 880. this happening around 5:45 this morning. the freeway shutdown. cars are now creeping through on the shoulder. it's been a huge traffic mess for the last two hours. it looks like it's going to continue through the morning. in the traffic center with robin winston. and they're letting them sneak through on the shoulder. but the southbound traffic that just stopped. >> they're looking at the flashing lights and activity in
the opposite direction. 880 south is open but the backup back to 238. this is your northbound commute which is way back in fremont. >> there's no way around this unless you want to swing out to 680 for people coming from fremont let's say. people are headed to the oakland airport stuck in this backup. and it's not going to be cleared for a while. >> 8:00 was the original estimate. we have not received a new estimated time of clearing yet. but i don't see confirmation that the coroner has even arrived at the scene yet. we may be dealing with this for a while. not only do people have to get to the oakland airport. but sometimes i take 880 south to get into san jose. so if you have to head south this morning you still need to leave early. you have city streets to work around it. mission, that stretches from fremont all the way through
union city, and hayward. and there's also hisperian. you can use that to work through hayward and get away from the traffic on the freeway. all lanes closed 880 north between industrial and whipple. your drive time anywhere from 50 minutes to one hour for both directions between 238 and 237. back to the desk now. >> and we're watching weather here and up in the sierra and around the nation. here's a live look from kirkwood where it's around 30 degrees currently. warmer with some snow showers and clouds and fog in the area. a lot of the resorts opening today and many more for thanksgiving. so skiing and boarding for this thanksgiving holiday if you're inclined. >> there's more to come all this weekend too. now thinking about how do you time getting back home because of all the snow. let's start with that right now to give you a feel for what we
have. winter weather advisory until 10:00 this morning. yes there's more upstream. so there's probably fresh new advisories to let you know about. winds at work here too. if you're headed up there thick snow and snow packed roads. chains got to pack them too. with success of systems that may be problematic. some showers working over the east bay hills. we've been watching a little cell work over the richmond bridge to the oakland bridge now it's over the east bay side making its way. now this other line just upstream we've been watching this may effect later on the peninsula. given maybe an hour or. so upstream there's not too much far south. most of the action has been up towards the north. our numbers still pretty much upper 40s. 52 for richmond. most of the northbound numbers in the lower 40s. we'll see some 30s happening tomorrow. future cast saturday looks like a washout. today will be okay after we get
past the morning showers. then thursday is great. then into black friday that looks okay for the early part. but overnight into saturday we get dumped on pretty well. and it looks like a wet saturday and lingering into sunday morning it looks like breaking up. so it's going to be more of a scattered shower event it looks like for sunday. let's go into the national perspective real quickly. heavier thunderstorms towards louisiana and mississippi it turns to snow in the great lakes states. how do airports fair? looks pretty good. across the u.s. we had problems in minneapolis that's cleared out. checking everybody out here looking good with all the goose eggs up there. we've got activity going on and no major delays. thanksgiving is nice, black friday the rain will be concentrated in the latter portion of the day starting in the north bay and spreading out. we'll continue to follow this as
the morning progresses. back to you. >> security is extra tight in new york city today ahead of the macy's thanksgiving day parade. in the wake of a recent posting in an islamic state magazine that called the parade an excellent target. police say extra security measures will be taken along the entire parade route. thousands of officers will be on the streets and snipers will be on rooftops. dozens of sanitation trucks filled with sand will be in place to create an imposing physical barrier. law enforcement officials say there is no specific credible threat but they say isis is tempted by holiday attacks because they are losing ground on the battlefield. >> time now 7:20 and president obama will parreden the national thanksgiving turkey for the final time. this year people voted between tater and tot for the parredening. while only one can be named the national thanksgiving turkey. both will be saved. they will go live at virginia
tech where veterinarian students will take care of them for the rest of their natural lives. the parredening ceremony takes place this afternoon. >> a lot of people say the election will be a hot topic at the dinner table. >> don't talk about politics. our national correspondent in dc with dinner table diplomacy. >> diplomacy goes a long way here in washington. so when those trump clinton fights break out we ask folks here at the white house where they're getting ready for the inauguration what's your plan? >> just eat a lot of stuffing and not talk about donald trump. we're going to discuss what we're going to buy at black friday. >> i don't talk politics at all? >> never. >> never. >> show compassion and kindness, we hope that will be a good role model. >> i want to get your strategy. this tweet saying trump and obama look like all of us at thanksgiving sitting in awkward silence wishing we were black
out drunk. >> that's probably how it will go down at my family. >> be quiet i don't know. >> you can talk about arts, crafts, love, hugs, but not. >> politics. >> walking into thanksgiving dinner with a family that voted for trump like surprise. >> that's how i typically enter rooms anyways so. >> of course. the most important thing is. >> our family and how they're doing. >> obviously right. you get together for love. >> yes. >> so republican or democrat, trump or clinton, at the end of the day family is family. enjoy your holidays. reporting at a very busy white house i'm national correspondent chance fields. >> just in time for the holiday shopping season the annual report on hazardous toy and is toy safety is out. it's called the trouble the toyland survey. they found toys that were recalled because of lead or batteries or other hazards are still available for sale in online stores.

humus recall we told you about earlier this week now expanding to more products. taylor farms recalling products because of a possible lysteria contamination. these items were distributed between october 30th and november 18th. neither of the companies have said there's any illnesses reported. we have information on the recalls on our website. >> time now 7:24 still ahead on the kron four morning news an east bay city warning about an up tick in car burglaries especially as the holiday season approaches. where these incidents happened and what you need to do to protect yourself. >> plus after the break we now now which states have the worst drivers. we're going to tell you where california ranks on that list. here's a live look outside at
we're following breaking news out of hayward where the freeway is still closed in the northbound direction between industrial and whipple. we have chp and other emergency crews on scene investigating a fatal accident that happened in the 5:00-hour. the southbound side is open. and the northbound side is closed. but there's a major delay in both directions. i'll zoom out you can see that northbound backup here stretches into fremont. it is a whopping 66 minutes. the opposite side southbound backed up from 238. it's 45 minutes to get from san leandro. if you need to get to the airport using 880 make sure you leave early or just stick with city streets, mission boulevard and hisperian can be used as alternates. >> thank you very much robin. as many people are hitting the roads for the thanksgiving holiday, it turns out a new list is out as to which state has the worst drivers.
>> california made the top 20, no surprise there. >> no surprise. >> they look at crashes caused by failure to obey traffic signal, drunken driving, speeding and careless driving. california ranked 16th as the state with the worst drivers. that's compared to 2016 when we were 22nd. so we're getting worst. >> number one at the very top is texas and louisiana. they tied as the states with the worst drivers. the study comes as there's been a rise in traffic related deaths over the last year. this is a good reminder to be as safe as you can on the roads. hard to control what other people are doing but as long as you're doing the best you can hopefully that'll be enough. >> relatives always tell you we're not worried about you it's the other guy. here's a look at what's going on in our radar, storm tracker four tracking some showers along the east bay shoreline. nice downpour happening around san leandro. this is drifting to the south. another line may also hit the
peninsula in the next hour or so. stay close. the kron four morning news continues. >> we're tracking airport activity. i'm at sfo. i'll let you know what's going on on one of the busiest travel days of the year. ♪ take a good look around... ♪ ...and if you're lookin' down, ♪ ♪ put a little love in your heart. ♪ ♪put a little love in your heart.♪ ♪ in your heart.

still waiting for another update from chp. but they're saying they hope to have this out of the way by 8:00 this morning. 880 north at industrial, all lanes are closed. right now they're working on getting some of the folks that are trapped between the two closures. one is at whipple the other right at the scene at industrial. so commuters are stuck between those enclosures and trying to divert it off the freeway. there's a big backup coming out of fremont back from 84. southbound all lanes are open but it's attracted a lot of attention. major delays back from 238. look at the drive time now 66 minutes for the northbound direction. the opposite side not as bad. but it's creeping along from 238 out of san leandro. 43 minutes from 238 out to 237. your best alternates are mission boulevard and hisperian
boulevard. i'm also tracking overturn on 580 in san leandro. a driver flipped over at 150. we have the left lane blocked with heavy traffic here. this is coming out of san leandro into caster valley. >> good morning everybody. and speaking of the same general area we've been seeing showers holding together on the east bay shoreline drifting south out of san leandr now moving south. i want to go north to the bay bridge and look how it's clearing up. there you see it just north of hayward. this again is drifting to the south. there's another line over my shoulder here looking to strike maybe the peninsula in the next couple of hours. now temperatures we're pretty much in the upper 40s, sun hasn't had much time to do much magic. up in the north bay looking at mid-40s. probably tomorrow morning the upper 30s with drier air. next eight hours i put us down for a lot of sunshine.
but as the clouds keep reminding us we'll have the regeneration of scattered clouds because of surface moisture. thanksgiving looks marvelous but there's more rain upstream. we'll talk about that in just a bit. >> today one of the biggest travel days of the year. >> millions as we said earlier expected to hit the roads and the airports across the country. 49 million traveling nationwide. most of them on those roads. but you can expect a lot of company at the airports too. 3 million people will be in the skies flying to their thanksgiving destinations. >> will tran has been watching conditions at sfo this morning. >> reporter: sfo is starting to turn into a mannequin challenge. not a lot of movement you can see. look at the parking lot here, it's not a parking lot, it's where people pick up and drop off. you can see how busy it's gotten over the past hour or so. with so many people taking off and landing. perfect conditions though, you can see not a lot of cloud
cover. it is sunny, so no flight delays taking off or landing. we'll be a very busy day before thanksgiving. 76,000 people expected to take off just for today. and another 76,000 or so leaving or arriving today i should say from other destinations. also a very busy day for lyft and uber. other ride services, if you need to get your hands on those services do it quickly. they're filling up. here's an uber driver as well. i can tell you the checkpoint lines are working at full capacity. they've opened up every gate so you won't have any problems but they're still advising people to get here 90 minutes to 2 hours before your flight. you know how it is, hurry up and wait and you can see how busy it is. don't spend too much time at the curb side there's so many police officers walking up and down yelling at everybody.
you can't stay you've got to get going. this being the very busy holiday travel season security is really not stopping because they want everybody to be safe coming or going. back to you. >> thank you for the update, will. >> and if you're driving to your destination look at gas prices here in the bay area, they have dropped slightly. here's what you're going to pay on average when you're looking to fuel up. oakland at $2.66. $2.65 in san jose. and san francisco at $2.80 a gallon. >> don't forget to download the kron four app. we have the realtime traffic sensors that let you know where the backups are as you're trying to get to grandmother's house for thanksgiving this year and getting home too. >> happening today san francisco mayor ed lee and interim police chief and fire chief will show off their turkey carving skills at the annual turkey carving
event. here's video from previous years. they help provide meals for people in need around the city. 1200 pounds of turkey prepared for delivery tomorrow. the carve off starts an hour from now at the harbor lights center on harrison street. then also today st. anthony's annual turkey drive today. they'll stand curb side in bright teal coats to collect turkeys and other donations you can drive up and donate. you can donate a turkey by dropping it off at 121 golden gate avenue. >> 7:36 now to the darker side of the holidays. car break ins there's a growing problem in the east bay and it's expected to get worse into the holiday season. two people were nearly run over this weekend while trying to stop a car burglary in progress in hercules. it happened sunday night when a
man was walking out of a restaurant. he confronted the person but the would be burglar jumped into his own car and tried to run down the victim and his friend. >> he jumped in his car and drove away and as he drove directly at the victims and the witness and they had to jump out of the way and one of them was clipped with the bumper. >> my concern was that they actually tried to confront the suspect. that is very, very dangerous in this world today. we never know when our suspects are carrying weapons. >> thankfully neither of those two men were seriously hurt. they were actually able to get the license plate number. that helped police arrest the man. the city of oakland has a new plan to keep the raiders from leaving town. >> they're agreeing on a plan, they came to the agreement yesterday. you talked with the mayor about that. >> it was right before a closed door meeting the mayor had and a recent agreement to fund a new
stadium for the raiders. it would be on the same site where the coliseum is. >> we are excited about having a partnership that will lead to more economic vitality in that coliseum area. but we want to expand on that. we want to create a great opportunity and a great atmosphere for fans not just the days that they come to the games but everyday. >> the plan will still need approval by the board of supervisors. it will be discuss publicly at at the city council meeting on december 13th. ellen degeneres shows up to the white house to accept her medal of freedom award. but they didn't let her in, we'll explain what happened. and how astronauts plan to celebrate thanksgiving this year. passing showers popping up in the bay area: we'll have more
5:00-hour where a pedestrian was struck on the freeway. 8:00 is the estimated time of clearing. we're getting close, i'll keep you updated. we'll see if that happens. meanwhile northbound traffic a whopping 84 minutes to san leandro. this is attracting a lot of attention and causing a major backup for southbound commuters. so make sure you leave early this morning if you have to use 880. or consider city streets instead mission boulevard will get you around the slow traffic. >> thank you, robin. and just like here on earth turkey and football will be the main headliners on the international space station. >> nasa astronaut serving as chef for the six-person crew has video he just posted showing off the meals he's preparing tomorrow. he's sort of talking about what is in each of those pacts. he's going to warm up pouchs of
sliced turkey, candied yams, cherry and blueberry cobbler. he adds water to bags of dehydrated cornbread dressing. all the fixings up there. >> that's kind of depressing. >> also some live football games too. this is his second thanksgiving up in space and the third for astronaut peggy whiteson along with some international crew members also. >> one french men and three russians on the crew. they'll take part in the thanksgiving dinner too. if anybody complains the turkey is too dry it's probably going to be them. >> still tracking some rain across the bay this cell here impressive rain happening where a lot of traffic action is happening in the east bay. still a little bit more upstream. this is basically morning business in the next few hours this should clear out. we do have a nice thanksgiving coming up weather wise. we'll be talking about that when the kron 4 morning news continues.
. >> staying hydrated is very important but not all drinks are created equal. here's some tips on rethinking your drink. >> i'm here today with core hydration and core organic to think about rethinking your drink. this is a cool product. it's ph balanced to naturally harmonize with your body's p h. and it comes in this contoured bottle. so it makes it convenient and easy as well. >> how do we know how much water to drink? >> a good rule of thumb for determining your water you need, take your weight in pounds and divide it by two that's how many ounces you need. >> very simple. >> it makes again, super easy tasteful way to make sure you

and we're back taking a look at some of the big stories we're following this morning. a quick check out of the east bay where police are looking for a man who sexually assaulted a uc berkeley student. this happened around 1:30 yesterday morning at the student co-op. police describe the attacker as a black man about 20 years old with dreadlocks and a goatee. >> nikki haley named as u.s. ambassador to the united nations. that makes her the first woman appointed to any position in the trump presidency. she was a critic of donald trump during much of the presidential race. she still has to be approved by the senate. today is one of the biggest travel days of the year. millions of people expected to hit the roads and airports across california. nearly 600-0000 californians are going to travel. 49 million traveling nationwide. as always expect a lot of
company at the airports. more than 3 million people say they will be flying to their thanksgiving destinations. >> we're following the traffic mess this morning in the east bay. we have a pedestrian hit and killed on the roadway. northbound 880 in hayward. the freeway has been shutdown. robin is here with an update as this is causing traffic delays north and southbound. >> it's still closed in the northbound direction. still causing a major backup. you have the oakland airport, the san jose airport. both accessible from 880. both backed up. delays of over an hour now. nothing has changed. no word from chp as if they will extend the closure. they're telling us 8:00 that's around the corner. we'll see if that happens. but it's only the northbound side that's closed. so this is really clogging up traffic coming out of fremont, union city trying to get into hayward. you're best alternate city
streets, use mission that takes you from fremont all the way into hayward. southbound lanes are open but there's a big backup because it's attracting a lot of attention. so it's almost jammed from 238. i'll zoom out a little bit you can see the northbound drive time 84 minutes from 237 to 238. you're southbound drive time not as bad. but 39 minutes for the opposite direction there. so a big back up can be expected. i'll let you know when we receive more info from cph. here at the bay bridge we have a backup rolling into san francisco. it's the only bay area bridge clogged up like this. a lot of folks heading in. it's backed up to west grand and speeds pick up across the upper deck. you can also see that roads are slick this morning. so watch your speed, 18 minutes here from the foot of the maze off to fremont street. san mateo bridge not bad. a little crowded but it's moving. it's definitely holiday light. but probably because people are stuck in the heavy traffic in the closure so they haven't made
it over to the san mateo bridge yet. so it's light here. 17 minutes to get from 880 across the bridge and over to 101 in san mateo. >> thank you robin. good morning we're going to start things off giving you a couple of pictures of what's going on here. this is time lapsed for us. there you can see the dark skies. you can watch the showers move on in as we go forward through the period here you see getting dark opens up a little bit. got a little rainbow towards the end doing its magic. we also see the two on the east bay shoreline. what we've got going on is here's another batch of showers across the region. this patch here is where robin is talking about with traffic mess coupled with that here comes some rain and maybe in some cases a little heavier rain for a time. this is spreading to the south and east. these little cells kind of left over business. here's another shot for you out of berkeley showing the east bay shoreline and there we see also
the rainbow making itself known. but you did see the bay bridge shot. that's our future the blue skies. that's what we'll see for today. again noting a little line out here to see another last minute shower across over the peninsula. jumping over the east bay hills, 63 for walnut creek. 64 for concord. down in the south bay numbers may get up to about 65 or so. 63 for mountain view. but for san jose 65. the same for santa clara. san francisco you'll come in about 60. mission district about 61. most of the peninsula readings are in the lower 60s. redwood city at 61. half-moon bay at 60. although up in the north bay stenson beach a little chillier at 56. 63 for napa and fairfield. looks like black friday is okay for most of the day.
