we have your full america's cup forecast as the race continues today. as the commute kicks in, traveling north or south, notes for both of you. a little warning as you cross the bay. still standing some 17 hours later, ted cruz delivers a marathon speech in the senate on this wednesday, september 25th. this is "today in the bay." this is "today in the bay." a very good morning to you. thanks so much for for joining us. i'm laura garcia cannon. >> good morning. i'm marla tallez in for jon kelley. happening now, the clock has struck six and an elderly couple is facing eviction at this very moment. they are refusing to leave their home they raised their seven kids over the last few decades. their apartment is located on the corner of jackson and larkin streets in san francisco. "today in the bay's" christie smith joins us live from that
6:02 am
location. have they officially been evicted yet? >> good morning to you, marla. so far, no eviction activity. we haven't seen any sheriff deputies out here at all. in theo, it could happen at any moment on a family who has been living here for 34 years raising their family in a two-bedroom apartment. they say that the building's new owner came in and told them, look, you are being evicted under something called the ellis act. they say they are standing their ground. gum gi lee says, no, she is standing up to a system that puts developers over people. the 74-year-old says she has raised seven kids with her husband in a two-bedroom, rent-controlled apartment here on jackson street. she says she can't afford the one-bedrooms, what they are going for now, about $2,000 a month in this area, specially those close to her disabled daughter's school and doctors. this law allows property owners to clear a building with buyouts. the rental units are supposed to be fixed up and put back on the
6:03 am
market but there is a loophole. lee spoke with us through an interpreter. >> translator: i just feel really stressed, really anxious. >> you target undervalued, rent-controlled properties. you get a lender to finance it, clear the property of the tenants, renovate it and resell it as luxury tenancy in common units the san francisco rent board says in the first six months of last year, 62 san francisco landlords had filed ellis act eviction notices. that number nearly doubled, 125 so far this year. certainly, changing with the skyrocketing housing market. david chu says changes are needed. for one, he would like to give seniors and the disabled in this situation under the ellis act priority on affordable housing lists throughout the city. reporting live in san francisco,
6:04 am
christie smith, "today in the bay." students at a south bay high school return to class after returning that a popular math teacher has been arrested accused of having sex with a minor. >> he is also finding some support online. >> good morning to you, laura, in support of hugo cortes guzman that paint him as a positive role model for students here at santa claire high. santa clara police have a different opinion. yesterday, late afternoon, they took cortes guzman in for questioning and after that interview, they arrested him for having sex with a minor. it is not clear whether that person is a student at santa clara high. cortes guzman teaches math at the school and he is also involved in avid, a program that helps mostly low-income students prepare for college. the district has sent out a letter to parents letting them know about this arrest alerting them he has been placed on leave. the letter asks parents not to
6:05 am
jump to any conclusions that he is presumed innocent. if anyone has any more information about this case, to contact police. with regards to what you were mentioning that was happening online, there have been a few young people, possibly students at santa clara high, who have opened up on twitter about his arrest. one tweet reads he was my favorite teacher in santa clara. another, cortes guzman, an amazing teacher who cares for students and the school. and i'm quoting here, stop believing these dumb rumors, i believe he is not guilty, unquote. bob redell, "today in the bay." gunshots still being fired in that upscale mall in kenya even after the country's president declared an end to the four-day standoff. a government spokesman saying the shots were fired by kenyan forces as they go through the building. in fact, we have seen smoke coming from the mall this morning. it is unclear what is actually causing it.
6:06 am
the sweep is keeping the coroner from recovering bodies from the mall and kenyan authorities say it is possible the death toll and attack could double. at least 61 people are confirmed dead. it is possible more victims are trapped inside the rubble in the part of the mall that collapsed during the siege. today, kenyans are beginning their three official days of mourning. flags will be flying at half-staff throughout nairobi. new details in the massive earthquake that struck southwestern pakistan yesterday. the government just announced the death toll has, rather, jumped to 271, at least 375 people are injured. this morning, rescuers are struggling to help thousands of people left homeless after their homes just collapsed. the shaking from the magnitude 7.7 quake was felt as far away as new delhi, the capital of india. how about this? local media reports also showed
6:07 am
video of a small island that emerged in the arabian sea after the quake and hit pakistan. the island is apparently the result of earth and mud ush ppu to the surface by the quake. it is unclear whether it is made of soft mud or rocks and harder material. you can see it off in the distance. scientists aren't sure if the island will stay put or if it is just going to subside back into the ocean. scientists are hoping to visit the island to get samples of the soil to find out. >> they say it is small but from a distance, it is a pretty good size. good morning, laura, marla. everybody at home. want to start with the coast and show you it is nice and clear. this is the golden gate bridge. part of the reason is because we have pretty strong winds. if we see any flight delays, they will likely be caused by
6:08 am
wind and not the fog delays. we want to point out severe sustained wind speeds picking up. concord, 15 miles an hour, oakland, 14 miles an hour. livermore, still down in the single digits. that's all going to change as we get into the afternoon, gusty winds start to pick up, specially between 1:00 and 5:00. we all know what happens at 1:00, that america's cup race is down to the wire now. the final race. if it does take place, you can catch all that action right here at 1:00 p.m. on nbc bay area. you want to set your tebows if you can't stay home to watch it. it is going to be really exciting after that fake oracle comeback. we are expecting 62 at 1:00, 63 at 2:00. kind of cool conditions if you are going to be headed out and about. nice and cool. hour by hour forecast tells the story of the day. we're going to be in the mid to upper 60s in places like san jose. meanwhile, expecting plenty of 70s inland. your full forecast in a few moments. the action is going to be out on

what's interesting is san francisco is 7 by 7 and then 7% bigger. lots of sevens going on there. the quarterback of the san francisco 49ers is number 7. >> are we going to be in the 70s? >> a couple cities it blows my mind how small san francisco is and how widely the weather varies. with the storm system coming in, as per usual, from the northwest. similar temps. 68, san francisco. not a lot of separation between the two. we want to start with this live picture. beautiful city lights. highly visible. we don't have any low clouds. no flight delays out of sfo. we could see some as we head throughout the next hour or two. that is courtesy of wind. wind is really strong out there. we are expecting sustained speeds to really pick up as we
6:20 am
head throughout the afternoon. gusts will remain about the same. look at how strong they are through altamont. we are seeing gusts up to 57 miles an hour. 41, sfo. that's the strongest gust we have had so far. pa chaco pass hitting 37 miles per hour and 37-mile-per-hour winds gusts clocked in santa clara. it is windier out there andt is going to get even windier. it is a dry area. we still could see a stray shower or two. i stopped the clock right at 3:00 p.m. a little bit of activity in the east bay at that point. very light showers at best. through the north bay, stop that clock at about 4:00 p.m., still getting some action from fairfield north woward. we are going to see clearing between 5:00 and 9:00. the wind will stay with us.

not a great day for the flowing skirt. so for any amount of time on your hair. that's where the wind will be the strongest and up through the north bay valleys. 74, livermore, 72, santa cre teresa, 74 in gilroy. not a lot of separation between your inland cities versus those at the coast. we are going to see that separation return as we head through thursday into friday. a warming trend we are looking at a nice drive through the south bay. we have a typical slowdown, north 101. as you pass by 680, things start to bog down. you are clear by the time you reach the san jose international airport. 87 shows that traditional slowing that we have been seeing over the last ten days or ten work days. we see the slowdown north of ku kurtner headed into downtown. not a big deal. no drama down here. we are looking at a nice, smooth
6:22 am
flow. although, it builds as far as the volume goes, west 580 through livermore. it has changed from yellow to orange. a smooth flow of traffic as you head over towards the east bay drive, 880 coming down through hayward and union city. the dumbarton bridge moves smoothly. so does the san mateo bridge. there is a wind advisory. gusty conditions at times. be prepared to hold on tight. you should hold on anyway. we are getting a live look outside and see how things are shaping up over here. we are starting to see a little slowdown. you see the cars hitting those brakes. that's because the backup has passed west grand avenue and making its way back toward the berkeley curve. one last look at the peninsula. southbound 101 as you head down toward oregon expressway.
6:23 am
i will track that. no slowing at university. watch the oregon expressway, guys. back to you. >> thanks so much. >> well, call it a bobblehead breakdown. >> 18,000 yankees fans that lined up early to score a mariano rivera bobble led got heated when the shipment arrived late. a train from seattle had a mechanical issue and was delayed. then, the truck bringing the bobbleheads from the train to the stadium had hydraulic issues and that led to more delays. stadium workers handed out vouchers until the bobbleheads arrived after the third inning. fans say people were very frustrated with reports of some fist fights breaking out in line. >> collectors and sellers are already up to $88 on ebay this morning. >> oh, wow, really. 6:22 gains ground on two wildfires. we are going to tell you about the efforts that spared dozens
