one runway, meaning you better be ready for delays. >> people will say this is such an inconvenience, but why is it important? >> i would think of it like this. like roadways have maintenance, like a regular road. so a runway is similar to that. >> reporter: to help ease the traffic, sfo has worked with airlines to reduce the number of flights during this period by 13%. many airlines including united are sending passengers emails like this, warning people about the expected delays and offering to change flights for free. we talked to a guy at sfo leaving friday night for palm springs. you think it's good they're doing this maintenance? >> it's better than having plan tarmac. >> r deal with it. you missed it by one day. how are you feeling about it? >> delays, you should try tow book early flights before 9:00 a.m. try to avoid wednesdays to fridays. like we said, talk to your airline. many are willing to change your

said, okay. i will join the other 11, and so max harris got off. >> as for almena, the jurors had two arguments, one legal and one moral, implicating the warehouse's landlord. >> ten of us felt that he was guilty based basically on the fact that he violated the lease. they argued that engs en engs is collected and the rent and the utility bills and they knew it was all illegal, but by going along with it, these people felt that gave almena tacit agreement that what he was doing was okay. >> billings says after the verdict was announced, prosecutors asked the jurors about the strength of their case. he said because almena faced a 10-2 guilty vote, it will be interesting to see if the county will bring him back to trial. now to developing news. a lightning-sparked fire kbuburd

stabbing to death italian police officer, and gabe natale's uncle and grandparents visited him. italian prosecutors say the teens were looking to buy cocaine in the early morning of july 26th, and when undercover officers intervened, they took what police call a pusher's backpack to the meridian hotel where they were staying. when that so-called pusher called his phone still in the backpack, the boys answered and demanded 100 euro and a gram of cocaine for its return. you can hear the backpack owner calling police for help retrieving his property. undercover officers responded and confronted the teens who said after they didn't know the men were police officers. prosecutors say finn elder admitted stabbing rega with this marine-style knife and gabe natale fought off and ran away. at this news conference, he said
he couldn't fire his weapon at the suspects running away because it would violate policy and he was busy helping his mortally wounded colleague. but now italian media has reported varriale has changed his account, admitting they did not have their service weapons, their handcuffs or police identification and that they were wearing shorts and t-shirts at the time. finn elder's attorney in rome tells abc news those admissions bolster both teens' statements they didn't know the officers were in fact police and they call into question the credibility of the case's main witness. >> the public has an incomplete account of the true version of the events. it is said, however, the truth will set you free. >> reporter: late today, new images from surveillance video published by the italian newspaper show elder and natale the hour before meeting the officers, looking down the street, and crouching behind a car near their hotel. those pictures are part of the investigative report handed over to the defense teams this week.
leah elder sent me a statement by text late today saying that after seeing her son, finn is painfully depressed and that it has been difficult to hear the facts so unfairly misrepresented. for the i-team, dan noyes, abc7 news. let's move on to the weekend forecast. looking pretty good. >> yeah, hoping for some good news. sandhya patel standing by with more on that. >> absolutely. we're going to have some great-looking weather here locally. i do have good news from the perspective of the hurricane that we've been tracking for about a week. dan and dion, hurricane dorian continues to pull away quickly from the east coast although the winds are picking up around southeastern massachusetts. it is a category 1, winds of 90 miles an hour, higher gusts. as you will notice, it's still off the coast. tomorrow morning as a category 1, and then it heads towards halifax saturday evening. 80-mile-an-hour winds as a category 1 hurricane, eventually weakening by sunday morning. they will get the brunt of the rain and the wind next.
