♪heat wave >> if you are wondering why we're playing that song, part of the country is in a heat wave. texas, new york city, more than 53 million people are under a heat advisory. temperatures reaching in the

7:15 am

7:16 am
of that broken window. 7:15. we're getting new details about that bridge in southern california, the one washed out by wall of the severe rain and flooding. caltrans since when the inspectors went to that bridge in march, they didn't find any structural problems. look at it now. this bridge is on interstate 10 in the california desert. about 50 miles from the arizona stateline. it's the main road between the two states. sudden flooding over the weekend eroded the ground beneath the bridge and it collapsed. engineers say it would be back to limited use maybe in a couple of weeks. if you headed out the door this time yesterday, you probably had to crank the ac. but sal, at least the weather isn't that big of an issue. no. yesterday on 680 we had that mess. we don't that have -- we don't
7:17 am
have that. traffic is gettingbicier coming around curb. if you are driving around 880 south, we have slow traffic from just after 238 from mowry avenue where any are clearing a crash. 680 is slow. it's nothing like it was yesterday. bay bridge toll plaza, that is backed up for a 25, 30-minute dpla. it has been made a little bit worse by incidents on the bridge that have been cleared up. if you add an extra, ten, 15 minutes, you might be able to stay on the schedule. let's go to steve. all right. thank you. well, a very big fog bank out there. some tropical clouds moving back in off the valley. had some mostly cloudy skies to the east bay and they have -- i think we're on the western edge of that. they are about to move off. the low responsible for them moves into central california. but still there could be a few sprinkles, isolated showers. again, only for the morning, i would think by this afternoon,
7:18 am
that all moves out. probably more show than go. out toward parts of the delta, maybe highway 4. 50s and 60s. not the os that we had -- 70s that we had yesterday. 24-hour temperature change minus 12 degrees cooler at fairfield. 11 oakland, minus 8 san jose, livermore minus 9. concord minus 11. you combine that with a west wind, 25 gusts over 30. that will do it every time. delta breeze has kicked in. we've had some thunderstorms up to mendocino county, lake county. not today. the low is moving to the south. look how it's accelerating east. that's because this system will push in. that will continue the cooling trend. today another day of showers. for the mother lode, central sierra. but there is a peg fog bank -- big fog bank out there. it's been very active in the
7:19 am
sierra this summer. low clouds, a lot of low clouds. westerly breeze. a few high clouds. but the humidity factor is not as bad when you have a south wind. 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. we'll see a few lower 90s but out of the upper 90s to 100, more 70s and 80s. same for much of the santa clara valley. a lot of low 80s. morgan hill, gilroy, 70s, 80s on the peninsula. but cooler weather is on the way today. and much more so thursday and friday. >> all right, steve. interesting story. giving some new hope to patients who have hiv. there is a teen in france proving there may be a possible cure for the disease. a rare rainout for the anaheim angels over et weekend- - over the weekend. the measures they took to make sure everything was ready for a

7:29 am
there is being prepared to be towed away. coming up in two minutes, our alex savidge will update us on the investigation. alex will tell us why police are having a tough time finding key witnesses. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> i'm dave clark. we're checking weather and traffic. i just ducked out. still cloudy but feels good. >> feels good. the weather will feel good. we have more of a fog bank and a westerly breeze. still tropical clouds sneaking in from the valley, especially toward the east bay but expect those to start moving off soon. the low responsible for them is also moving and being bumped along by a cooler testimony to the north which will start to move in later today. take us right into the next couple of days. still, low clouds deck and boy is thatter a lot. there wasn't any. now we have a lot of it making a push inland. some of those higher clouds continue to push in. there were a few showers.
7:30 am
i doubt much is happening here. more show than go. 50s and 60s. a tremendous difference compared to 24 hours ago. anywhere from about7 to almost 14 degrees cooler than it was. that's because the delta breeze, the westerly component mass picked up big time. shower activity will be developing in the sierra. maybe in the vool but i think things -- maybe in the vool you about i think -- maybe in the valley but i think things will be hot. higher clouds off to the east bay, 80s, more so than 90s. 60s, 70s, coast and bay. sal, you've had a couple of things you've been dancing around. right now we do have slow traffic and incidents. let's did outside and take a look at san jose. traffic is moving okay. 101 near heading, there was a fire in the trees not affecting traffic but if you saw fire engines, that's why. again, the traffic is just normal which means it's slow.
7:31 am
gets up into sunnyvale. let's go to the maps. i talk about southbound 880, it's backed up for 238 heading on south which is normal. 580 is much better than it was yesterday. and so is 680. yesterday we had the terrible commute. today it's nothing like that. at the bay bridge toll plaza, it's backed up for a 25, 30- minute delay. we had a couple of earlier incidents. so today it's about 10, 15 minutes behind schedule. back to the desk. >> thank you. oakland police have are busy investigating a deadly crash. it happened outside of a funeral home last night. it thanked at 37th and tell le graph. alex savidge at the scene. you've been out there since 4:00 this morning. tell us what we know about the comrash and also -- crash and also tragically the teen killed. >> good morning. oakland police they are wrapping up their investigation here as we speak and you can tell pause they are getting set to tow away the car, the single
7:32 am
car involved in this deadly crash last night. this is the sedan, blue sedan that was speeding south along telegraph according to police when the driver for some reason lost control and then hit a tree and then slammed into the front of the funeral home at telegraph and 37th street. the driver in this case, a teenaged boy died here at the scene. a relative has identified that young man as 17-year-old deshaun raban. this all happened before 10:00 last night. this is right next door to the chp's oakland office and chp officers were among the first to arrive last night. witnesses say there were passengers in that car. police say there were passengers as well and some people saw maybe between -- maybe at least four people run off after the crash and authorities are still trying to find the other people inside the car. we talked with a website to the crash who tried to help the
7:33 am
driver. >> i immediately got sick and i couldn't do anything but, you know, walk toward it and see if anybody needed help. once i got fought car, i just realize -- once i got to the car, i jaust realized that -- i just realized the person was probably dead. >> reporter: relatives say the 17-year-old was set to be a senior this year coming up this fall. the oakland police department's fatal accident investigation team was called out here last night. they arrived after the crash. they had quite a bit of work to do, a wide scene to process here. they are almost done gathering all of the evidence they need at this location but -- and they are set to tow away the single car involved in the crash. in the meantime, it's been sort of a traffic mess. 37th street -- excuse me. telegraph is sh ut down here but hopefully -- is shut down here but hopefully it will
7:34 am
reopen soon. >> thank you. a house fire is being investigated right now. this one started on montclair avenue early in morning. look at the flames here. firefighters say six people were inside at the time. all got out safely. but one resident said she and her boyfriend woke up to a scary sight. >> what's going on? he got up and opened the door and there was flames and smoke coming into the door. >> firefighters say it pay pierce the fire started on the first -- it appears the fire started on the first floor. they were able to keep it from spreading to other homes. the red cross is he he -- is helping those affected by the fire. the vallejo fire department got several cars about 11:45 about a duplex on fire at the corner of york and alameda streets. when they got there, one of the duplexes was on fire. and it was spreading to the second duplex. they were able to get it under control in about 20 minutes.
7:35 am
ten people who lived in the two duplexes at the time, they all got out safely. the cause of the fire is under investigation. 7:34. it's a battle over the cost of composting. pam cook is back to tell us why oakland restaurant owners are so upset. >> many restaurants have been making sure that food waste doesn't go into the trash bin. some say they are not gonna go to the trouble. that's after the city of oakland switched trash collection services to waste management at the beginning of the month. what happened after that, took many restaurant owners by surprise. one tells us the compost bill jumped from $500 to $1500. >> they are higher than trash rates which is a deterrent. it goes against the intention of the contract go had we knew that rates were gonna go up some. we heard today people were being charged beyond even what
7:36 am
was approved. >> the coalition of restaurants took their protests to city leaders yesterday. waste management said it's willing to negotiate but also says composting is expensive and that oakland has mandates that increase cost such as paying union wages, serving all businesses regardless of location and having to buy very expensive cleaner vehicles. now, in our next hour of "mornings on 2," we'll hear from a restaurant owner who has made a really tough choice and we're gonna look into what's is next in this fight over composting. didn't realize it was cost so much. >> and it just hurts because you are doing the right thing but it's like you are making it hard for me here. >> exactly. some of the restaurant owners are saying it goes against what they believe but they are having to make tough choices. >> love the green bin. thank you. new this morning, governor brown and two bay area mayor at the vatican for a discussion on climate change among other
7:37 am
topics. ed lee shared the strategy to reduce greenhouse emission. >> steer row arrest to -- zero waste to landfills. 100% renewable energy. >> mayor lee said the city must ensure the solutions to climate change benefit san franciscans of all races and income and across all neighborhoods. >> governor brown urged the mayors to light a fire and join california with climate change. san jose mayor sam liccardo also at the symposium. 7:37. there is a new report on child welfare that as i children are being left -- that says children are being left behind. 23% of american children lived in 2013. that's up 5% from the numbers of 2008.
7:38 am
and it says poverty continues to hit some ethnic communities harder than others. the rates were almost twice ahigh for african-american and native-american children. and the report says the poverty was the most severe in the south and southwest. good morning. we're looking at a commute in the south bay where traffic is a little bit busy on 280, 101 and 85. well, i just stepped
7:39 am
outside. it's nice and cool in jack london square. we'll talk about a cooler pattern.
7:40 am
7:41 am
happening right now, the father of kate steinle, the young woman shot and killed on pier 14 in san francisco, in washington, d.c. he's about to testify at a senate hearing. we're showing you a live picture of that committee hearing right now. other witnesses include family members of others killed by undocumented immigrants. there's mr. steinle. the suspected killer is an undocumented immigrant who had been deported five times and had a number of felonies. since kate's death, the
7:42 am
sanctuary policies, the topic of much debate. dianne feinstein is working on legislation that would require local law enforcement to notify immigration of the impending release of any undocumented immigrant who has been previously convicted of a felony. >> i strongably believe that local law enforcement -- strongly believe that local law enforcement should have notified the immigration authorities in the case of the accused murderer, kate steinle. the man who killed kate is a classic case of multiple felonies and prior deportations. >> brian flores is monitoring the hearing and will update us. but joining us is michael cardoza to explain how san francisco's sanctuary policy differs from federal law. >> well, they basically ig new york federal -- ignore federal law. the feds come to the city and county and say we would like you to hold this particular
7:43 am
prisoner. that's what i.c.e. does. san francisco considers that a suggestion. says no, we don't have to do that unless you come with a warrant or there's a case that says we have to hold that prisoner, we're not going to do it. we're not going to notify you when we release them. >> reporter: and san francisco among some 300 cities or counties that have laws that giver from what the -- that differ from what the federal government says. >> everybody seems to be doing it differentry. everybody interprets their sanctuary law differently. and that's a big portion of the problem. >> we heard mr. steinle and his wife say they would like to see a rule that says anyone who has been deported yet returns to the u.s. would face mandatory jail time. what do you think of that suggestion? do you think we'll see that brought up at the hearing and possibly passed? >> i'm sure you will see it brought up in the hearing. do i like it?
7:44 am
i love it. that's what should be done. but it should be tweaked. if we deport someone convicted of a felony and that person comes back, not somebody that gets deported but deported, have they been convicted of a felony, they come back, they should be facing federal mandatory minimum time, ie five years or so. and if that felony is a violent felony, then that mandatory minimum should become five, ten years in prison. that will stop people from coming back or at least they will give this a second thought if they are a convicted felon. not just someone who is deport and comes back without a felony. they will have a better chance if they tag on with a felony conviction. >> the sanctuary policy was born to allow those up documented immigrants to come forward who were victims of
7:45 am
crimes without fear of being deported. how do you put that on the scale with the death of kate steinle and the death of the deputy killed in sacramento by the individual who was supposed to be deported? >> that's difficult. you want to prevent crimes in the communities but even the san francisco sanction abery law says -- sanctuary law says we're not gonna protect those people convicted of felonies. though in this particular case we know he was convicted of what? seven felonies? but yet, if, after the feds gave them -- they said well, d.a. is not gonna prosecute it. common sense would have been having the feds have used. this a federal warrant for a case 20 years old.
7:46 am
what are the chances of them prosecuting that? san francisco should have said, don't bother. we know the d.a. won't prosecute. but when they did get sanches from the feds why didn't they call them? because the sanctuary law says if somebody is convicted of a felony, my god, seven felonies, should someone have said we're not gonna prosecute, come get him. well, we let them sit for a couple of weeks. and everybody pointing fingers. that has to stop. stop the politics in this. get this done. use common sense. >> that's exactfully what mr. steinle -- exactly what mr. steinle said when he was speaking with fox news. let's take a quick break and go to washington right now. >> up documented immigrant --
7:47 am
undocumented immigrant who has been convicted of seven felonies and already deported five times. yet, in march of this year, he was released from jail allowed to state here for freely because of those legal loopholes. it's unbelievable to see so many innocent americans that have been killed by undocumented immigrant felons in recent years. in fact, we've recently come across a statistic that says between 2010 and 2014, 1 1 criminal aliens -- 121 criminal aliens who had an active deportation case at the time of release were subsequently charged with homicide-related offenses. think about that. 121 times over the past four years an illegal immigrant with prior criminal convictions that went on to be charged with murder when they should have been deported, that's one every
7:48 am
12 days. our family realized the complexity of immigration laws. however, we feel strongly that some legislation should be discussed, enacted or changed to take these undocumented immigrant felons off the streets for good. we'd be proud to seek kate's name associated with some of this new legislation. we feel if kate's law saves one daughter, one son, a mother, a father, kate's death won't be in vain. >> listening in as. this has reignited the debate of sanctuary policies. we just spoke with our legal expert. we're keeping an eye on the hearing. we're gonna rope brian flores back in the coverage in a moment. back to you, dave.
7:49 am
