wee hours of the night, but that won't move the trains. this will have a big impact on the 4th of july. >> we have team coverage on the eve of that holiday. jeff is here to tell us how a shift in the weather could shape your plans. >> jean ellie is? san francisco where it might affect the fireworks but we'll begin in oakland at the site of the negotiations, terry? >> reporter: negotiator coming out of the building as we speak and so far, not a word. that's standard procedure. any announcement tonight about the strike from anybody? is anybody going to say anything tonight? will there be any statement from either side tonight? is anything going on -- okay. all right. what we're hearing from them is what we've been hearing all day long, talk to the mediators, so we're not hearing anything from either side. there is a gag order by state
mediators on the talks. all we can do is what bart riders, 400,000 daily riders can do and that's wait. a pro-union rally outside the cal chance building loud at times, but not a peep about talks going on inside about bart management and unions. >> we made progress yesterday and hope to continue today. >> reporter: the spokesman said about the same thing. jeff burger says hire me. he stood outside the building today saying he would gladly take a job with bart right now with the current contract. >> the employees get paid well and there is people that would be willing to do the same thing and contribute to the pension. >> reporter: the bart buses bridging the west oakland station in san francisco were overwhelmed, long lines and packed buses. at the o dot coliseum tonight, lots of fans take bart to the game could not like paula and her daughters. >> i'm a handicapped person, so
getting here so late has kind of impaired our ability to get in how we normally would with the shuttle and getting here. >> reporter: the ferguson family here from monterrey, they noticed extra cars on the road. >> it took a lot longer to get here. >> reporter: how much longer? >> about half an hour. >> reporter: really? >> yeah, and parking was worse, as well. >> reporter: a's fans do love their team but tonight i found no one cheering for bart in the area. as we saw, negotiator coming out. nothing to say to the media, nothing at all, not even no comment. there is a gag order here so negotiations can go forward. should the strike be settled right now, it would be at least 12 hours until bart trains could roll again and we have no word that there is any progress or anything at all with regards to
talks. they were going on here and appear to be wrapping up for the night. >> okay. very good reporting, thank you, terry, appreciate it. let's bring in jean ellie and jean, tomorrow is traditionally a huge day for business and fun in the city but might be scaled back. >> reporter: well, raj, restaurant owners say they will be staffed for large crowds but without bart, they are concerned thousands of people will stay home. you can drive if you drive the traffic, but parking restrictions and traffic will make that difficult. fisherman's warf is a bay area favorite. she usually joins the crowd along the warf but while standing in line she says this year will be different. >> staying home. >> reporter: why? >> just a hassle of trying to -- without bart trying to get out
here would be busy. >> reporter: she's not the only one declaring independence with crossing the bay without bart. >> stinks. i wish i could go in. i got friends. we'll make the most of it. alameda has a great parade. >> reporter: with no trains during the strike, they don't know how many will brave the traffic to celebrate in san francisco. >> everything is hand made and lights up for the 4th. >> reporter: venn todors hope f big crowds. opening ceremonies are set for noon. new green bike lanes to encourage bicyclests to hit the street and make more room on the sidewalk but the manager here is worried there will be lots of room. >> i won't be surprised that it will be slower, less people. >> reporter: over on the docks, tickets for fireworks boat tours are for sale. this captain is looking to hook
customers. >> we're thinking with the boat strike, a lot of the people in the city won't be in a big rush to leave so we hope it will stay busy. it will be able to get here on public transportation here. beefing up the holiday service tomorrow and most ferries running on a holiday schedule. reporting live in san francisco. >> thank you, jean. another live look at downtown san francisco, fog free after a six-day heat wave that scorched the bay area. the excessive heat warning for inland communities continues on the 4th of july. our chief meteorologist has more and really, we'll see 100 temperatures in some of the inland areas. >> yeah, a hard time shaking this again for tomorrow. let's look at the hottest for today that will set us up for what we can expect for our 4th of july. 104 in lafayette and 100 down a
little bit from what we experienced on tuesday but still very, very excessive when it comes to the heat. the worst in the east bay. any 4th of july celebrations from the morning hours right through the evening, you want to make sure to take plenty of water, frequent breaks and even something like a hand-held fan could help you out. we'll have cooler temperatures coming on the way, and that as it builds off the coastline will increase the wind. that's horrible timing with these fireworks that will be lifting off tomorrow, not a good idea to lift those home fireworks off. winds could gust 15 to 30 and 10 to 20. not a good mix tomorrow with hot weather and also the winds increasing. details and much cooler changes in the seven-day forecast. okay. thank you, jeff. we also want to get back to the bart coverage. there could be an agreement ending the strike at any point. we talked with terry, at that point the negotiator were
walking out but we invite you to stay up to date with us on air and online. tonight the kids are still in camp after a tragic accident. many from the bay area and witnessed a tree falling into their camp site this morning killing a camp counselor. this happened near yosemite. the tree hit a santa cruz student. this is a picture of her from her facebook page. stephanie has the story. >> reporter: it wfwas 8:30 in t morning. countless kids inside the dining hall eating breakfast, yards from where a tree suddenly collapsed killing a santa cruz senior. >> it's a scary incident. >> reporter: this was the second year in a row caroline hastings set her daughter juliette to the camp. the wait for information from the camp excruciating. >> one of the happiest times of summer, for something like to
this happen is frightening to children. so without injuries, we wonder, you know, how are the kids scared? do they want to come home? >> reporter: it hurt four other women. by evening two were on their way back and two others recovering. not long before the news spread to a neighboring camp where the sheriff is this week with his family. >> that just floored everybody, and just kept us floored. >> reporter: so he walked a few miles. out of breathe he said it was vital to lend support. >> our hearts and prayers are out to even, but literally from what we could tell versus what we heard at the other camp, they are on top of it. >> reporter: camp leaders kept the kids far from the scene all day but there are grief counselors as they prepare to move forward with the schedule. third through ninth gradeers preparing to head home friday and a new bach arriving sunday. this mom said the thought of picking her daughter up early is
relentless. >> putting my foot forward and going through the day and waiting for information, but until i see my child on a blog or personally, i'm going to not be able to rest. >> now she was active on the uc santa cruz campus you heard stephanie mentioned. she was well-liked and respected by her peers. a young woman who was headed for a bright future. george, i know you talked to people who worked with her at that campus radio station. >> reporter: yes, i did earlier tonight. she was supposed to return to santa cruz for the senior year and we talked to her co-workers at the campus radio station and they are trying to digest this horrible news. >> i don't think it's quite sunk in yet that she's not going to be back and doing radio anymore. >> reporter: she was the voice of world music on the uc santa cruz radio station.
>> she embraced it, loved it. >> reporter: he was her broadcast advisor. >> her personality on the air is very much like her personality in person. she had a great sense of humor and you could tell that she was really intrigued by the music she was exploring. >> reporter: but the news of her death caused a void, station manager says that's an emptiness hard to describe. >> it's one of the things you hear, you don't know what to think or what to do and it still hasn't quite hit me yet. everything just feels really weird and surreal. >> reporter: they aren't surprised she was a youth camp staffer this summer. they say it fit her personality. >> working with children, seemed like a natural for her. she's got the right personality for it. >> reporter: the toughest part they admit will be this fall when school begins. her voice on radio won't be
there. >> there will definitely be a void, a huge void. >> reporter: now, the radio station is planning to do a special tribute for her including recordings of her shoc and thoughts of those who worked with her. >> okay. thank you, george. the president is gone, the constitution suspended in egypt. a live look at cairo. what the military is doing again in charge. what's being done that allowed the great america's gold strike roller coaster to get moving again. i'm terry mcsweeney, we just got word about what the very latest is. we'll have it for you after the break. ♪

the muslim brotherhood. >> reporter: as army helicopters flew over tahrir square, egyptians lit them up with laser thanking the military for driving out mohamed morsi. the celebrations were triggered by this highly anticipated announcement, the army chief on national television outlining a road map. morsi, the constitution suspended the head of the court, the new president but only until early election and what about morsi and his supporters? they are calling this a coup, a plot. >> the u.s. embassy, which is just in the back of this square has ordered the departure of all non-emergency personnel and their family and advising american citizens in egypt to
leave. in arizona firefighters think they are gaining control of a wildfire. a force of more than 600 are battling the fire. it's killed 19 firefighters that happened on sunday. now crews say they have made their first big progress and the fire is 45% contained. this is the deadliest wildfire in the u.s. in 80 years and crews fear by the time it's over, they could find more bodies. it could trigger another exit of experienced police officers in san jose. the police officers association has lost it's arbitration battle with the city. they were fighting over salary and retirement benefits. sources say the ruling means a cap on cashing out on a crude vacation and a cap on cashing out on sick time and means officers will not get back the 10% in pay they had previously
given up to help the city balance books. >> it will hurt, and i'm just hoping it doesn't hurt for a long time that people. it becomes acceptable to be an average department. >> the city manager's office confirms the verdict is in but can't comment on the specifics. the city charter prohibits public disclosure for ten days. both sides can negotiate a better deal. one of the biggest junior colleges in the country faces an uncertain future tonight. city college of san francisco will lose it's accreditation in july of next year. that drastic decision was handed down today by the accrediting commission for junior colleges. city college failed to fix financial and educational deficiencies. the school plans to appeal. in the meantime, the campus will remain open and accredited. it has the makings of a courtroom drama if it makes it.
major league baseball hired one of the most prominent trial attorneys in the anti-trust lawsuit filed by the city of san jose. that attorney is john kekker a partner in the san francisco firm. his list of high-profile clients include google and lance armstrong. that's a courtroom showdown between him and another heavy weight who leads san jose's case. the city accuses the league of violating federal laws by blocking the effort. let's bring in the chief meteorologist. the eve of the holiday, good firewor fireworks weather? >> yeah, for at least 75% of the viewing area, some of you will be very hot for us. right now we're continuing to deal with this odd weather pattern. it is very rare to get any kind of lightning strikes in the bay area to begin with but when you find them in california at night, these nocturnal
