when the earthquake struck. he died from a head injury this he sustained in the avalanche. this deadly quake was long predicted. in fact, we're learning seismologists met just one week ago to talk about how to better prepare kathmandu for the next big one. coming up, lessons learned from those meetings and how other cities are getting ready. we will follow this story all morning long. kris sanchez will have more coming up. and for information any time head to we're website nbcbayarea.com. it's a heartbreaking story. this morning the community of discovery bay is mourning the loss of a 9-year-old boy stabbed to death in his own home. the suspect, someone the family thought it could trust. "today in the bay's" bob ridell is joining us live where a memorial is growing this morning. good morning, bob. >> reporter: good morning. that suspect is allegedly the older -- the friend of the older brother of the young boy killed here in the home in contra costa
county. the sheriff's office arrested the 18-year-old man for killing the 9-year-old boy at his home here in discovery bay where you can see people from around the neighborhood have left candles, stuffed animals, flowers in memory of this young child. it's not clear why billy shultz stabbed jordan almgren. shultz was friends with jordan's older brother. spent the night here saturday night. according to deputies on sunday morning, killed the young boy at his home, stabbing him to death. the sheriff's office searched for shultz for several hours yesterday until he popped up at the kaiser hospital in ant ak to be treated for injuries related to this stabbing. it was an alert nurse who happened to recognize him and called 911. >> one of the nurses at kaiser happened to see it offen a social media post, suspect's photo, and recognized him as being treated in the emergency room. the deputies weapon over there and confirmed that, yeah, he was actually at kaiser emergency. >> reporter: friends of the suspect tell us that shultz had
been kicked out of his father's home, was living temporarily at jordan's home, was at one point kicked out of there as well. again, as we mentioned, did spend the night there saturday night. deputies say they are investigating shultz' mental health background but won't confirm whether he was detained earlier saturday night on a mental disorder hold for someone who may be dangerous. jordan almgren was a third grader here in discovery bay. he's been remembered as a kind boy with a good sense of humor and a love for basketball. reporting live here in discovery bay, bob ridell, "today in the bay." >> thank you, bob. it is 6:07. happening today corinthian colleges will be forced to turn away 16,000 students this morning. the for-profit institution is shutting down. nearly 30 of the campuses today including hill college in milpitas. the department of education forced the closure after investigation into fraudulent practices. it's working to help students continue their education with other schools.
but some students say only advice they've received so far is to pick up their transcripts. time to check your microclimate forecast as we give you a live look outside of san jose and we know that this weekend we saw some rain and also some sunshine. it was a lot of activities going on over the weekend. >> that's right. >> now we're just gearing up for a little bit of heat today. >> i think so. i want to check the forecast with meteorologist christina loren. >> it is going to be a warm day. good morning to you. hopefully everybody was able to get outdoors this weekend. that rain mostly came through saturday morning so we had a beautiful saturday afternoon. same for sunday and because of those showers that rolled through, oh, my goodness, our air quality is looking really good. we are kicking off this "spare the air" season as of today. temperatures in the 50s. 54 degrees in san carlos. 51 degrees, good morning, oakland. i want to show you this gorgeous sun rise. the sun is now up over san francisco. this is from our castro cam.
really pretty start to the day here. look at palo alto. this is where we get to live. it is so inspiring on a monday morning. just a beautiful start to the day here on the peninsula. and look at this, lake tahoe where we accumulated over a foot and a half of new snowfall. yeah, you can see that mountain looking really good for this time of year. now, squaw valley did have to close their doors on sunday. if you have a chance to get up there over the next week you're still going to see some of that new fresh powder. for us today it is going to be warm. much warmer than where we ended up yesterday. as of lunchtime your day park forecast shows you 70s on the peninsula, low 70s for the east bay as well. and 76 degrees at noon in the tri-valley. up to 88 degrees. a little bit on the warm side in the tri-valley later on today. 86 for the not bay. 81 in the south bay. just as quickly as those temperatures come up, they are going to crash for tomorrow. i'll take you through your up and down weather ride this week
coming up in your full forecast just moments away. right now though good monday morning. always making it a little bit more pleasant. here's mike inouye. >> try and keep you away from what's unpleasant but that would be hayward because of the traffic flow there. this is the south bay. here we go. looking over toward hayward, southbound 880 jams up from san leandro down toward a street. we had a crash at wynton blocking your fast lane, just moved to the shoulder minutes ago and farther south as you make your transition past a street we do have another crash which made it to the right shoulder. everybody is shifting right, heading off of 238 and san mateo bridge. bad timing, bad spot. and that's the bad slowing. that's the worst of it for the bay. as you make your way over to the san mateo bridge, also a stall that was reported right, that should be cleared from lanes. that's keeping everything at bay over on the hayward side making the peninsula looking a little clearer right now. a little late for that build at the foster city side. we'll show you that foster city live camera out there and we see an easy drive so far across the
san mateo bridge. as the crashes cleared in hayward, we should see more traffic heading over. live look at live camera. light volume just starting to build. southbound heading down toward that bridge. northbound heading toward another bridge, the bay bridge where the metering lights are on. standard backup in the maze and up toward 580, 24. northbound starts the build in earnest over the next 20 minutes. sfeed will start to dip 101. not a big deal. 680 right now up toward 880. seeing the volume increase. 101 in the north bay, san rafael southbound side and looking at a build here. novato slowing but that's it. nice easy drive down toward the golden gate bridge. >> hello monday morning. >> four more to go. up next, pretty amazing video of some softball size hail causing some major problems for people in texas. business news. the most valuable company on the stock market. reports its profits. we'll tell you what to look for coming up. (scal): good day, m'lady!
coming up on 6:14. a look at the day's top stories. investigators will conduct a mental health check on the 18-year-old a accused on the deadly stabbing of a 9-year-old boy in discovery bay. deputies say the suspect's father recently kicked him out of his house and he was staying at the home of the victim. thousands of college students waking up this morning to learn school is closed for good. corinthian college abruptly shut down the remainder of campuses including hill college. number of dead is sure to rise in nepal where many still unaccounted for this morping. the official death toll right now stands at just under 4,000 people. facebook activated its safety check features shortly after the quake hit. >> scott mcgrew, it encourages people near the quake to check in with family. >> facebook mobile app is tracking you, right?
if it defected you were in the earthquake zone you got an alert suggesting you let everybody know you're okay. it works on the desktop, too, it's a way of checking in and lets you know here at home if any of your friends are in the effected area. none for me personally but if i were there -- there were people in nepal i could reach out and see what i could do to help them. the world's most valuable company opened the financial books this afternoon. apple reports profits and while we'll hear a lot about the sale's success of the iphone 6 probably won't hear anything about the watch. people said if that it wanted a bigger screen, apple gave it to them. i'm sure we're going to see some phenomenal numbers on the 6th. quarterly reports do by definition look backwards so we're going to be looking back before there was an apple watch. it came out after the most recent apple quarter which ended in march. we'll hear more about this in the summer report though don't doubt during the conference call we'll try our best to ask anyway. you big is apple?
apple is twice the size of the next biggest company on the s&p 500. that index and the nasdaq index both at all time highs. tomorrow we get san francisco home prices. those will no doubt be another stunning number. and then yahoo! this morning is in new york city. they're talking to advertisers about the soon to be released yahoo! products. the tv business calls these up fronts yahoo! calls them new fronts. katie couric is going to be there. she's a yahoo! employee now although yahoo! has trouble getting her out to see that video. she doesn't come up, say, on twitter or facebook or things very often. >> all right. katie couric, the new face of yahoo! there. thanks very much, scott. my gosh, we've got softball size hail going on. and i just -- yep, i'm okay. i just got glass all over me. we got to get out of this. yep, that just happened. >> you better get out of that. isn't it amazing? softball size hail just bust through the windshield of a car driving through a storm in
texas. one of the passengers put on goggles to keep glass from getting in his eyes. more severe weather is expected in that area today. but, boy. >> nasty lookinging windshield there. live look outside this morning. it's like strokes on a painting outside the bay bridge. simply spectacular. >> nice start to our day, christina. >> temperatures are going to be warm later on. the there's something you want to do outdoors, maybe walk the dog, go for a nice walk yourself, you you want to go so as early possible inland. otherwise, hitting the mid 70s later on today in san francisco. 74 degrees there. hopefully everybody had a great weekend. back to work, back to business and temps are going to be warmer this week than any other day. in fact, it's going to be really warm out in the tri-valley, 88 degrees as high pressure is now firmly, i meaning, firmly in control of your weather pattern. ocean ac negated for today. 86 in walnut creek. 74 in san francisco pra.
big changes as of tomorrow. big ridge of high pressure starts to back off. for us, that means an 8 to 10-degree cooldown just between today and tomorrow. you can see here by wednesday cooling you off even more so, average high this time of year, 73 degrees out in the east bay valleys. we're going to be above average just about every single day this week but not too bad. today will be the warmest. as we head through the next few days in san francisco and san jose, not bad. 70s by tomorrow for us here in the south bay. from 81 to 74 degrees. just over 24 hours. 76 degrees by wednesday. then temperatures gradually climb as we head throughout the end of the week. if you're wondering about the weekend, if that's what helps you pull through the workweek it's going to be lovely out there. comfortable conditions. wide spread 70s for us. south bay, the peninsula, san francisco might hit the low 80s in the tri-valley on saturday. but cooling on the way for your sunday. let's get you to work. you've got to work for that weekend. >> that is the carrot that many of us hold in front of us.
over here, looking at the single worst spot for the bay area. southbound 880 from san leandro down toward the san mateo bridge. 880, tough drive. both moved to the shoulder. a total of nine vehicles may have been involved. quite a bit of spectator slowing possible. see recovery of stalled west 92 to make things worse if that is your route across the bay. but the rest of the bay, the peninsula side moves very smoothly because traffic held up over in the east bay. in fact, we're looking at a lighter build overall. here's the tri-valley southbound 680 through pleasanton. same thing for sunon. widen out your look, north of the san mateo bridge, the only other slowdown is bay bridge toll plaza slow for 580. live look out there. start with the bay bridge toll plaza and see the backup here. metering lights were turned on about 537. on the peninsula, light volume
for the rest of the bay. northbound 101 past willow and san mateo and the city. and we'll look at the south bay with 101 as well. we do have a slight build forming now from north 680. all of the way up to 880. nothing dramatic, guys. back to you. >> thank you, mike. >> this morning investigative unit taking a closer look at important decision facing many new parents. what to do with their newborn's umbilical cord blood. is it worth it to pay thousands of dollars to save that precious resource? good morning. le. >> reporter: good morning. many parents, myself included, get bombarded with brochures that can make you feel guilty if you don't pay to store your baby's cord blood. some critics say this is an insurance policy you're unlikely to ever need. we went to the largest private cord blood bank in the world to better understand the science and the business. cod blood registry is based in san bruno. the company is trusted with 500,000 cord blood samples that it stores in a lab in tucson.
the ceo tells us the technology is changing quickly and that about 100 families have benefited from the stem cells from their baby's cord blood. the american academy of pediatrics discourages parents from paying for it. it's unlikely your child's own stem cells will be useful in treating the illness. they will be better off getting stem cell donation from someone else who doesn't have that same illness in their blood. here in california if you deliver at certain hospitals you can choose to donate your baby's cord blood to a public bank where it becomes part of a national registry and it's much more likely to be used to save a life. we have more on both private and public cord blood banking. the pros and cons all in our report. just go to our website at nbcbayarea.com and click on the investigation's tab. guys? >> victokyvicky, thank you very. if you have a tip, give us a call.
or you can send us an e-mail. at 6:21. speaking of babies this is an incredible story. a baby rescued from the dumpster 25 years ago meets the man who saved his life. that wasn't the only emotional reunion. the story is coming up. a live look outside this morning of that sun rise in the bay area. temperatures on their way up. we'll have much more on that, local news in your community right after this.
why do we do it? why do we spend every waking moment, thinking about people? why are we so committed to keeping you connected? why combine performance with a conscience? why innovate for a future without accidents? why do any of it? why do all of it? because if it matters to you, it's everything to us.
take a look at this. massive fireball caused major problems for a busy los angeles freeway this morning. yesterday a double tanker truck hauling more than 9,000 gallons of gas on the 710 when it jackknifed and burst into flames. the driver escaped with minor injuries. the freeway should reopen by mid morning. still trying to repair it. >> do a double take seeing that thing. okay. 25 years ago an officer there saved a baby's life. now the same officer has helped him find his birth parents. >> in 1989 officer found a baby barely breathing behind a trash bin in santa ana. he picked up the baby, breathed into his lungs and ran to a nearby pair met tiramedic for h. fast forward 25 years when he met the boy he rescued, now a
young man named robin barton. reports of their reunion caught the attention of barton's birth father who had been looking for his son for years. yesterday they finally met along with five of barton's new found sisters. >> i was raised as an only child. >> yeah. how does that even feel? >> that in itself is -- just adds to the -- easy how amazing this situation is, this journey unfoldsed a lot quicker than i expected. >> barton was able to speak to his mother by phone. santa ana police say she was deported to mexico several years ago. >> incredible story there. the opening bell just minutes away. we're going to take an early look at the numbers. and more on our developing story. relief from thousands of miles away. what the u.s. is doing to help nep nepal, next. live look outside from san bruno mountains of the san francisco city scape there in the early morning hours. it is 6:26.

"today in the bay's" tracie potts joins us live from washington, d.c. this morning.
tracie, the federal government is monitoring and developing the situation very closely. >> exactly, laura. they are also sending in supplies and people to help but we just don't know how quickly they may be able to land. earlier this morning india had a couple of c-17s turned away in part because there had been concerns about earthquakes, aftershocks, and the landing of those planes, those aircraft. but also they just don't have a lot of space there. so we've got to c-17 on the way with 70 people. disaster assistant team, search and recue teams that are so desperately needed. several journalists on that plane. we're told by the pentagon 45 square tons of cargo. this will be food and water and medical supplies, that the people there need. but again, as one official put it, it's one in, one out. and with a lot of countries trying to fly over those supplies, it could be a while before they actually get on the ground.

thousands of people are expected to attend the funeral of a baltimore man who died of serious injuries after police took him into custody. 27-year-old freddie gray died last sunday due to a spinal injury. baltimore police officers tackled him during a pursuit for an undisclosed crime. his attorney says that officers severed gray's spine when they took him down and now gray's loved ones will be joined at the funeral by several white house officials. opening statements begin in the capital murder trial of james holmes. he's accused in the deadly rampage at a colorado movie theater three years ago. the jury will decide if he was sane when he opened fire at the midnight premier of the batman
movie "the dark knight rises." holmes killed 12 people and injured 70 others before his rifle jammed. he could face life in prison, con tyfinement in a psychiatric institution, or death. this morning the defense team for convicted boston marathon bomber dzhokhar tsarnaev will try and convince the jury that he should not be put to death. attorneys for tsarnaev will likely try and paint a picture of a troubled young man influenced and ultimately pulled into the terror plot by his owner brother. in order to get the death penalty the jury must be you nan no mouse in decision. it is 6:40. life has certainly turned around for a man who suffered more than his fair share of tragedy. it's all thanks to a selfless and anonymous gesture. >> tim ward lost more than his farm during last year's mudslide in washington state. he was buried alife. his wife killed instantly and

coming in of all the -- just trying to handpick through all of this rubble, trying to find what is left. >> the tremors and the aftershock still very much a real issue for people. living there it's going to be take an international effort. "today in the bay's" kris sanchez has been following this every step of the way. she has new rescue and relief efforts. >> good morning. we know that aftershocks are preventing some planes carrying aid and workers from landing but this plane made it out of nepal carrying babies, preemies, who will now get care in hospitals in israel. meanwhile, rescue teams pulled a man still alive and conscious, he had been trapped in the rubble of a build until kathmandu since saturday's 7.8 quake. he is now among the more than 7,000 people who survived but who are seriously injured. more than 3700 people though died in the quake. many of the people who got out alive are now living in tents trying to stay away from the buildings as powerful
