use low cost and crowd source or open source technology in a disaster event. they are also developing what they call a survivable social media site that people can use that would supplement the work of first responders. like a wi-fi connection like this that would be solar powered and distributed to schools and other emergency response centers. >> the same tools you would use to keep in touch with your friends or your neighbors or colleagues would then keep working after we have the earthquake or the other large event. >> it could help neighbors connect with each other for help or update each other during a crisis. researchers don't know exactly when this technology will be available. but this research is being funded by organizations that range from nasa to police and fire departments to mobile service providers. in menlo park, thomas roman, abc7 news. >> the date may have been wrong, but the spirit was right in pleasanton. they held their annual veterans day parade a week before the rest of the country celebrates the special day. city leaders say the parade is

there is a massive construction project underway to secure the safety of the region's water supply. part of that project includes digging a massive hole in newark. abc7 news anchor dan ashley has the assignment 7 report. >> nearly nine stories below sea level they are shoring up the massive hole. the shaft will provide millions of people in the bay area with fresh, clean water. digging this hole in unstable mud and water presented the project engineers with challenges. how do they keep the mud and ground water from refilling
the tunnel while they dig, and how do they do that in an environmentally sensitive area? the answer, freeze the ground. >> the way we achieve that was by installing 47 pipes around the shaft and in through the center of the shaft which are called freeze pipes. we drilled them down about 110 feet deep. >> you can see how it works in these photos and video provided by the san francisco public utility's commission. the process is similar to how your freezer at homeworks. coolant was pumped through the pipes and then froze the ground creating a massive cylinder of frozen earth. joy it is like having a glass underground. it gives you the ability you need to excavate the shaft. >> it took about eight weeks to freeze the ground. then work began on excavating the shaft. every five feet workers reinforced the walls with wood and steel so that concrete can be poured. it took four days to install each section.
this frozen shaft is where a massive tunneling machine will exit. right now it is under san francisco bay. when completed, the five-mile tunnel will be the largest built under the bay. unlike the tube that sits on the bottom of the bay like a giant straw, the new tunnel is carved out of the earth. it will replace pipes built this 1925 and 1936. engineers say the old pipes won't survive a major earthquake. a failure here would jeprodize the water supply for millions of people from the east bay to san francisco who get water from the reservoir in yosemite national park. the new bay tunnel is designed to withstand a major quake on either the san andre yous or other faults. >> we hope to be there by next year. >> the agency is responsible for the water system. in 2002, the voters uh --
approved the bond measure to overhaul the aging system. >> we are about 83% finished with the tunneling. we have about 5,000 feet to go. it is very exciting. we can see because of this project we have been able to accomplish in the past year that it is a lot stronger than it was a year ago. >> dan ashley, abc7 news. >> work on the seismic upgrade project is expected to be completed in march 2015. now to an unusual use for your spare change. a pennsylvania woman used it to create a floor at her coffee shop. it took about 250,000 pennys and about 300 hours over three weeks to cover the entire floor. the owner says the pennies were a lot cheaper than buying tile. let's get to leigh glaser. she is checking on your weekday forecast. >> hi, everyone. let's do a little traveling. it is going to be cold back east tomorrow. 47 the expected high. boston you can see 48 for new york.
