they can't book week night concerts. they claim that ed sheeran pulled out of the concert because of the curfew potentially costing the city 600,000 to $800,000. so what's next? the santa clara wants a community outreach program to see what the counsel wants to do now. but that is still in the planning stages right now. coming up, preventing another disaster similar to the coyote creek flood, working now to keep the flood waters out. plus the growing worry that russian hackers are hitting silicon valley companies. ahead in business and tech. this is the new comfort food.

trying to negotiate with little rocket man. that diplomatic bomb shell from the president coming just after seven hours after coming home from beijing, telling reporters we can talk to them, we do talk to them directly through our own channels. tillerson diplomacy pleasing host in china but not boss back home. in fact, they say tillerson was already on the outs with the president for refusing to tear up the iran nuclear deal and dis agreeing with his comments about the deadly racial unrest in charlottsville. >> i think there is blame on both sides. >> the president speaks for himself. >> reporter: for his part tillerson was frustrated when he sided with saudi arabia. final blow for the secretary of state former leader of the boy
scouts almost came back in july when the president gave a widely pollutan political speech to the scouts. current and former officials tell us tillerson tried to quit but talked out of it by ally including defense secretary james mattis, incoming chief of staff kelly, and even vice president mike pence who had to give him ha pep talk getting on board on the president. >> and that was andrea reporting. aids say he'll stay on as long as president wants to serve. but ambassador nick. and a considered to go twitter from the school, they are sending to nbc sending them out there. and on that twibt messages saying there is an emergency
alert in place, remain where you are, and shelter in place until further notice. that is what we are seeing that was sent out by the school. >> that's right. we don't know exactly what the emergency may be. but we are gathering information right now from our newsroom about crews on that as well. well, coming up we are learning more details about the gunman's girlfriend. her sisters saying why she was not here during the massacre. they are known as killers in the school, but what's killing them, thousands wash up dead in the san francisco bay. we look at what's attacking them next. in the waters of the san
of sharks. scientists aren't sure how to stop it from spreading to other sea life including the fish you eat. so what's behind it? investigator found out more from the waterfront. >> reporter: san francisco bay is home to a complex ecosystem. wildlife is interconnected. and so even though this area stretches 1600 square miles, when one species suffers, others can too. and here along the waterfront scientists now belief there is a dead lie threat that lies beneath. hidden in the beauty of the bay is a crucial mystery leaving thousands of sharks disoriented or dead. >> we have to find out what's killing these sharks. >> reporter: is a marine biologist and leopard shark the main species washing up deds. in five months an estimated one to two,000 leopard sharks died in the bay.
>> i'm concerned whether this is going to spread. if we start seeing this up and down the coast of california. >> reporter: and the answer right now is we don't know. >> and i think that's the scariest part. >> reporter: field work on sharks is rare, so dr. and his research partner invited us on their boat in san diego for a first look. >> right now we are looking at leopard shark spot. >> reporter: catches and releases them as part of their movement. the team takes measurements, blood samples, attaches tracking units. the eyes are covered to reduce stress. it is funded by private donors and looks at their swimming responses. crucial to investigate what exactly is killing them. >> if we don't find out, then there is nothing we can do about
it. >> reporter: sharks aren't naturally buoyant, which means if they aren't swimming they sink. so they may never wash up on shore if they die. the sharks you see are a small fraction of the sharks that are dying in the bay. dr. mark should know, he's the one keeping count. he's the state's one man science team trying to find out what's preying on california sharks. similar deaths date back 50 years and are unexplained. but he believes he's turning the tide. his research now points to a para site. it sneaks in through a snark's nose and slowly eats away at the brain, often causing them to beach themselves. but this year it's not just sharks. up to 500 bat race, hundreds of striped bass, 50 smooth sharks t and about 100 halibut all dead.
>> so it's possible the para site is spreading? >> yeah, i think that's a reasonable assumption. >> reporter: overseeing it isn't officially his job, he's charged with overseeing white sea bass but researching shark deaths during spare time from home. and on his dining room table. >> probably have to wash this cloth before thanksgiving. >> reporter: studies bacteria in his kitchen. over 1,000 sharks are dead and different fish are getting infected and the research is here in your backyard. >> well, fish and wildlife we are spread pretty thin. >> we have a lot of constraints how our programs are funded. >> reporter: dave oversees, he's
deputy director and agency says he could best answer our questions. >> right now california is relying on a guy checking shark tissue samples in his dining room. doesn't that seem strange to you? >> i have no idea how his day-to-day operations work so i can't answer that. >> reporter: you are not aware he's doing science in his kitchen, backyard? >> no. >> reporter: our understanding is there isn't any funding for that specific job. >> we'll have to get back to you on that. >> reporter: they did and turns out agency has $0 for researching shark deaths. they could approve additional funds but until that happens the department says it's putting resources elsewhere, like other higher risk wildlife. leopard sharks aren't threatened or endangered and some of the
abundant sharks off the california cost. but andy nozel says that makes them canaries in a coal mine. >> when they diane wash a shore, it's pretty obvious we see it, but what about the other species that are dying that we don't know about. there is a lot more at stake than just leopard sharks. >> reporter: it peaked during april and may, during rainy months because fair amount of pollution washes into the bay, afterarrai aftera rainfall. right now the state is planning on putting any money to find out an answer. >> if you have a story for the investigator unit call ta number 888-996 tips or to the unit at
nbcbayarea.com. well, back now to the developing story we are watching following the mass shooting in las vegas. >> within the past hour and a half president trump arrived in las vegas. this is a live picture from the university medical center where the president is actually vi visiting some of the victims. he has not spoken to reporters when he arrived in las vegas. when he does speak, we'll bring it to you live. we have pictures of him landing in las vegas earlier this morning with the first lady. here is what he did say in washington d.c. before he gt on air force one. >> well, it was a very sad thing and we'll pay our respects and see the police who have done a fantastic job in a short time. and they are learning a lot more. and that will be announced at the appropriate time. it's a very, very sad day for me, personally. thank you. and now we want to take you

to make sure etcheber family are not alone. family members say her 10 and 12-year-old children have a lot of questions about what happened. >> why did you shoot mommy? and we didn't have an answer. >> stacie's shus a san francisco police officer told him to run to safety as he helped a gunshot victim. and also learning about a couple grew up in the bay area. bow tailor graduated in sunnyvale early 80s, correctional lieutenant, and nieces described her uncle as nicest guy in the world. he lived with girlfriend also killed. denise went to high school in san ramon. her best friend says cohen was

president trump controversy visit. >> and a week since devastated. reports from san juan with the mayor's new hope. >> reporter: the mayor of san juan told me last night she went to the meeting with president trump out of respect for the presidency but she felt offended. she told me she felt like throwing up during the visit not only hearing the commander in chief talking about deaths during this humanitarian visit but also comparing the number of deaths in katrina to the number of deaths here in puerto rico after maria. the death toll here doubling hours after the president's visit according to the governor. the mayor of san juan telling me that what she saw yesterday from our commander in chief, in her opinion, does not represent what she's seen on the ground here with the first responders and troops and every day people. it is the mayor of san juana according to some people we
spoke to in the streets, she's come to. and today the mayor as office is organizing the supplies, food, water, they have baby diapers to be picked up by local churches and that under scores how much need exists on the island still. just to give you one more negative color of how the president's visit went down here yesterday, this is the cover of the newspaper today, trump does not promise more financial help, which is what some people were expecting here. and these volunteers were telling me they now know it is up to them to get this island back up and running. back to you. well, right now we want to take a look at what's going on with the weather with kari. this is a nice morning and nice day. >> yeah, a lot of people heading out on lunch break. it's going to be really comfortable. and a lot of sunshine around the bay area.
