tv Today in the Bay NBC March 10, 2018 7:00am-8:01am PST
but a drizzly drive across the golden gate bridge right now. visibility is down to about a half mile or less around santa rosa. so through mid morning, we'll see reduced visibilities and at times misty skies and a lot of clouds today. in fact, a little adjustment to the forecast is to bring some of this rain a little bit further north. notice how the totals are higher towards morgan hill area, south of san jose. generally areas south of san francisco and oakland will have the best chance for seeing some light rain at times today. mostly cloudy and kind of a mild finish with temperatures today in the low 60s. we do expect 70s to make a comeback tomorrow and a stronger storm for the early part of the week ahead. we'll talk more about that and maybe snow levels in the sunday forecast. >> surprising. all right. we'll stay tuned for that, rob. thanks. it was a heart breaking end to an hours-long standoff in yountville. all three females were killed.
today in the bay is live outside the yountville facility, with more on those victims and the tragic time line at the nation's largest veteran home. hi, roz. >> reporter: good morning, kira. this was a tragic day. we arrived on campus this morning, all very quiet. but make no mistake about it, see the yellow tape behind me here. this is still a crime scene here and a number of police officers still on the scene here. let's take you back now to talk about how this tragedy got started. it was just before 10:30 yesterday morning when this man, 36-year-old albert wong, entered a room at the veterans home in yountville. about a dozen people were inside. several were let go. but three were forced to stay. and investigators say a napa valley sheriff's deputy exchanged gunshots with wong, but after that, nothing was heard from him or his hostages, despite day-long efforts to contact him. >> shortly before 6:00 p.m. this evening, law enforcement
personnel made entry into the room, where we felt the hostages were being held by the suspect. and unfortunately made the discovery of three deceased females and one deceased male suspect. >> reporter: now, the authorities say wong's rental car was later found nearby. a bomb-sniffing dog alerted authorities to something in the car, but the only thing they found inside was his cell phone. you spoke earlier about those three women, those three women described as brave and accomplished professionals who lost their lives. they had dedicated their careers to helping the nation's veterans. now, they were identified as the pathway home clinical director, jennifer golick, 42 years old. executive director, christine loeber, 48 years old, and jennifer gonzalez, 29, a clinical psychologist, with the san francisco department of veterans' affairs health care system. senator bill dodd, state senator bill dodd, spent part of the evening at the yountville town
halcon soling the families of the three women who died. he personally knew christine loeber. >> a young woman, just in the prime of her life. incredibly professional. and really passionate about helping veterans that have ptsd. >> reporter: now, the pathway program is a nonprofit program geared to helping veterans in need after they have been deployed in iraq and afghanistan. now, again, police still on the scene here. they tell us there are hours and hours of time that it will take to process this crime scene before they have any more developments. as we get more information about all of this, we'll bring it to you. for now, live in yountville, i'm roz plater, "today in the bay." >> roz, thank you for that. we are getting more insight into the police officers' response. they raced to the scene within five minutes of the initial 911 call.
here is the police dispatch right after gunfire erupted yesterday morning. >> a possible active shooter. has a semiautomatic with a lot of ammo. >> you can hear, they still aren't sure if the situation is real. but officers and deputies discovered when they arrived it was no drill. as we mentioned, a deputy traded gunfire with albert wong. people who live at the veterans home were relieved to be allowed to return home last night, but it was a somber return many had hoped for a peaceful resolution after more than eight hours on lockdown. they were stunned to learn the three women at the pathway home had been killed. >> i feel so sad for the three women that met their death from this guy. it just breaks my heart. >> i think it's sad. the people that he killed, they were volunteers. i mean, they didn't deserve that.
>> the tragic events followed a long day of waiting and worrying. many veterans who were on lockdown couldn't get to important necessities like their medications. some family members of older residents had no way to reached their loved ones and had to wait all day to find out if they were safe. and it also was an unnerving day for parents of students who were trapped inside the veterans facility. we spoke with one mother as she reunited with her two children. >> oh, my god, i see them. is that them? that's them! there's my kids! thank god. >> that's got to be relief. what does that feel like? >> awesome. thank you guys. thank you. >> sasha craig's son and daughter are students at justin ciena high school. they and their classmates were rehearsing a play in the theatre on the veterans campus. the students went on lockdown and were safely evacuated. this veterans home of california yountville is right in the heart of wine country.
it's off of highway 29, not far from the famed french laundry restaurant. the pathway home is there on the veterans campus. it's a nonprofit organization that helps veterans, and there is a wait list to get into the prestigious program. "today in the bay's" ian cole explains more. >> reporter: the pathway home, meant to be a step forward for veterans returning from wars in afghanistan and iraq. a critical service that just lost three of its best. congressman mike thompson knew the executive director who was killed. >> and there were three wonderful, professional, talented young women who get up every morning and go to work to help veterans. and sadly they're gone. >> reporter: since opening its doors in 2008, pathway home has helped more than 450 post 9/11 veterans. improve mental health as well as academic, work-related and relationship issues, it's located toward the east entrance of the veterans home of
california in yountville. a sprawling 900-acre campus run by the state and dating back to 1884. the site houses around 1,000 veterans with a broad range of needs. >> it's an absolute tragedy. this is a home and a program that helps veterans, and tonight it didn't help veterans. >> reporter: it is the largest veterans services site in the nation, a place to improve lives. the site of four lives lost. ian cole, nbc bay area news. >> and condolences continue to pour in. president trump just tweeted about the shooting this morning, saying, quote, we are deeply saddened by the tragic situation in yountville and mourn the loss of three incredible women who cared for our veterans. we will, of course, continue to follow this story all day. we're putting the latest information online. nbcbayarea.com. it's the top story on our website. 7:07. we do have much more ahead on

going to be able to do that any more is kind of sad. >> the sonic runway will now go back to burning man, but there is a possibility it will return to san jose, in which case i need to go see it. also on the move, a final night in city hall. this controversial statue in san jose will be moved today. the christopher columbus statue will be moved to the italian-american heritage foundation, also in san jose. it's been a fixture in city hall since the 1950s. however, recently an activist group has been pushing for its removal, saying the statue is a reminder of genocide, slavery and colonization. city leaders voted last month to have it removed. the spirit of san francisco's late mayor was a strong presence on treasure island yesterday. >> one, two, three! >> anita lee wielded a golden shovel at the ground-breaking for the life learning academy.

jose now, 55 degrees. we should see temperatures reaching the low 60s around the bay area today. and check out the visibility, less than a half mile in santa rosa. and you've got some drizzle and some light rain, too, with some of the low clouds around the north bay this morning. temperatures today, mostly low to mid 60s, a lot of clouds and rain at times with the stormranger mobile doppler radar right now not seeing a lot but midday we think this will change as some of the moisture still offshore makes its way inland, though the focus of this particular storm will be across central california and southern california. that is where some of the highest rain totals we'll find around the state will happen later today. but for the bay area, essentially areas south of san francisco, moraga and san jose, you will see the most out of our rain chances today as this system continues to bring a lot of clouds. and midday, right there, you see it. there's a chance of seeing some rain around lunch time. as we head towards the evening, looks like the best chance of seeing showers through about
9:00 will again be around morgan hill. probably why those estimates for rain are a bit higher there for areas south of san jose. and tomorrow morning, that's a look at low clouds and fog to start off your sunday. and it looks like more sunshine to wrap-up the weekend. so our temperatures for sunday will be trending warmer. so notice the focus of a lot of the moisture at this weekend system for southern california. sunday, through the first half of monday looks dry. and now we're talking about a gulf of alaska weather system that will have more wind and rain for the bay area. monday into the early tuesday morning commute. followed by cold air aloft. so this pattern looks like two weeks ago. you'll recall we had snow levels down as low as 2,500 feet or 3,000 feet, even though we're talking march 15th, the air will be cold enough thursday into friday that could set the stage for a chance of seeing some thundershowers and maybe even some low snow levels, maybe close to 3,000 feet on friday. then as we head towards next weekend, we'll begin to see skies clear out a bit.
so today a lot of clouds and a chance of seeing some rain, especially for areas south of san francisco. notice tomorrow, you're going to lose some sleep over that forecast. but the temperatures will be a bit warmer for sunday. monday, we'll have mostly cloudy skies. rain likely. maybe for the end of the evening commute on monday. tuesday looks to be the wettest day with breezy conditions. and look at that transition. 70s going into highs in the mid 50s. that is a air mass change from the mild almost kind of sub tropical connection to the system we have today to that gulf of alaska chilly air which could bring showers, maybe some thunder and some interesting weather. certainly more winter-like as we approach friday. kira, back to you. >> so interesting how it keeps changing. rob, thanks. still ahead on "today in the bay," a new look for the old bay bridge. we'll show how a bay area woman is giving new life.
on it for decades and took pictures as part of the iconic skyline of san francisco.

day? >> reporter: boynton is one of 15 artists recently awarded steel to create public art projects across the state. >> i am literally feeling the weight and the magnitude of how important this steel is. people would walk by and just take pictures of it through the gate, because it was like celebrity steel. >> reporter: boynton and her crew are crafting her allotment of steel into new structures for hornblower cruises on san francisco's pier 3. >> we think the metal makes a very strong statement, and will allow us to tell a story of the bay bridge. >> once in a lifetime opportunity, for sure. >> reporter: this is not the first time boynton's volunteer, anthony james, has had his hands on this steel. he was among six union iron workers who dismantled the old bridge. >> piece by piece. >> reporter: but while james has had plenty of experience taking things down, he's never had the
chance to resurrect one. >> not only is there blood, sweat and tears tearing it down, i get it put it back up. >> the best use of this metal when they took it down, instead of just recycling all of it somewhere else to give to artists to reuse in a different way. >> reporter: boynton plans to transform the steel into barriers, towers, and even a set of wind chimes from the pier, the bridge from the bay area's past reaching into the future. >> and i love this steel. >> reporter: nbc bay area news. >> very cool. we have much more ahead coming up. a planned sitdown meeting between president trump and north korea's kim jong-un. the white house says they are cautiously optimistic. plus, we will take you live to yountville for an update on the deadly veterans home hostage shooting. fwlap wanted to help the school. they would put these signs on the door to let the teacher know
you didn't cut off the light. the teachers, they would call us the energy patrol. so they would be like, here they come, turn off your lights! those three young ladies were teaching the whole school about energy efficiency. we actually saved $50,000. and that's just one school, two semesters, three girls. together, we're building a better california.

today. despite the clouds, not too bad temperature wise. mostly low 60s today. we will see warmer weather tomorrow before everything in the weather icon book comes your way again next week. we'll have a closer look in just about ten minutes. >> as you said, the weather emojis. and we also have to include a clock, because daylight saving time begins overnight tonight. >> very true. >> and we lose an hour of sleep. we'll check back in with you in a bit, rob, thanks. the ending no one wanted after an hours-long standoff in yountville yesterday, all three hostages were killed. three women who dedicated their lives to helping veterans with ptsd. one of the veterans turned on them. roz plater joins us from yountville with more on the victim and the time line that led to yesterday's tragedy. hi, roz. >> reporter: good morning, how are you? you know, with he drove on to the campus, police letting us closer to building g, where this happened this morning. and you saw veterans in their
homes and outside their homes and on their way to breakfast at the cafeteria. it's pretty quiet. but then you get here and see the yellow tape and you are reminded of the horrible tragedy that took place here, and that this is still an active crime scene. let's just go back now over the events that led up to this tragedy yesterday. it all started just before 10:30 yesterday morning when this man, police say 36-year-old albert wong, entered a room at the veteran's home in yountville. about a dozen people were inside that room. he did let several go, but three were forced to stay. now investigators say a napa valley sheriff's deputy exchanged gunshots with wong, but after that, nothing was heard from him or his hostages, despite day-long efforts to contact him. >> shortly before 6:00 p.m. this evening, law enforcement personnel made entry into the room where we felt the hostages were being held by the suspect. and unfortunately, made the discovery of three deceased females and one deceased male
suspect. >> reporter: now, authorities say wong's rental car was later found nearby. a bomb-sniffing dog alerted authorities to something in that car, but the only thing they found there was his cell phone. you spoke earlier about those three women, those brave, accomplished professionals who had dedicated their careers to serving the nation's veterans. those three women have been identified as pathway home clinical director, jennifer golick, 42 years old. executive director, christine loeber, 48. and jennifer gonzalez, 29 years old. she was a clinical psychologist with the san francisco department of veterans' affairs health care system. now, state senator bill dodd spent part of last night at the yountville town hall, consoling the families of the three women who died. dodd says he personally knew christine loeber. >> a young woman just in the prime of her life. incredibly professional of and really passionate about, you

discovered it was no drill. as mentioned by roz, the deputy traded gunfire with wong. people who live at the veteran's home were relieved to return home last night, although it was a somber return. after more than eight hours on lockdown, many had hoped for a peaceful resolution. they were stunned to learn that the three women at the pathway home were killed. >> i feel so sad for the three women that met their death from this guy. it just breaks my heart. >> i think it's sad. the people that he killed, i mean, i just -- they were volunteers. i mean, they didn't deserve that. >> the tragic events followed a long day of waiting and worrying. many veterans who were on lockdown couldn't get to important necessities like their medication. some family members of older residents had no way to reach their loved ones. they had to wait all day to find out if they were safe. and it was an unnerving day

good morning, waking up to a combination of fog and mid and high-level clouds. in dublin, cooler. also in the 50s, 51 currently with partly cloudy skies. san jose, kind of a mild start. mid o50s now. the high clouds you're seeing part of a sub tropical plume of moisture that even with the overcast condition today we think will still see highs in the low to mid 60s. visibility about a half mile or
so around santa rosa, north bay locations dealing with fog and drizzle this morning. and our temperatures today climbing, again, pretty much low to mid 60s no matter where you go from san francisco, san jose, pleasanton, maybe warmer spots with a chance of upper 60s. notice the chance here of seeing some showers as the on again/off again rain chances seem to have moved a little bit further north in our morning forecast. right now our stormranger mobile doppler radar picking up a few light rain showers in the north bay, but offshore, here's what we're watching coming in over the next let's say four to six hours. you'll see it in the futurecast here coming up. notice how central and southern california is where the majority of the moisture is. we do have an area of rotation here offshore. this is our area of low pressure, which will enhance lift right around midday and even though the bay area really is sitting on the northern fringe of this, we do have a chance of seeing some measurable rain today. notice for a change not so much for the north bay, we are seeing some drizzle and mist this morning. but areas south, especially
south of san jose and santa cruz mountains have the best chance for seeing some of that rain, which we think is going to pick up closer to lunch time. you see the overcast conditions this morning. notice as we fast forward to 12:30, you begin to see the chances of showers increasing, especially oakland and san francisco southward. and as we head towards the evening, now that system is tracking inland across southern california. and as we get into sunday, we start with fog here, all the way into sew lana county and sacramento and mostly sunny skies to wrap-up the weekend. sunday looks warmer and with more sunshine to wrap-up the weekend. so overall, a pretty interesting pattern for once. we're seeing a storm taking more of an aim on central and southern california. we get the break on sunday with 70s and a few spots around the bay area. and then monday into tuesday, this next system is a gulf of alaska system, and the cold front will bring up the winds for your tuesday morning commute. notice the rain estimates quite a bit higher than we're expecting this weekend. monday night into tuesday system
could add a third of an inch to an inch of rain. that will be followed by some very chilly air similar to two weeks ago when we had those hail and graupel showers around northern california. could see a slight chance of thunder. but a chance of snow, down to 3,000 feet as the coldest air arrives on saturday. as we head toward next weekend, things clear out. so pretty interesting seven-day forecast. one, you're going to lose sleep tomorrow morning. of course, remember the time change. but we'll lose some cloud cover tomorrow after the fog clears. and we'll see 70s for highs, even monday as the clouds start to fill in. but monday night and tuesday, breezy conditions. and look at that drop, almost 10 to 15 degrees cooler. in fact, a few spots thursday and friday, could see some highs in the low to mid 50s as we finish the weekend in the 70s tomorrow. kira? >> wow, a little bit of everything next week, including one less hour of sleep. rob, thanks. 7:48. still ahead on "today in the bay," coming up, you know to beware of hackers on your home computer. but there is a new warning that could compromise your personal

actually not the hotel wi-fi and our spet security expert can monitor everything you're doing right now on your phone. >> that's frightening. why would you want someone to know your personal information? >> even down on the beach, people are logging in. cody? >> yeah. >> there it is. fiesta rewards pool. >> that's pretty unsettling, being on vacation. that's pretty scary. >> but what information can the hacker really get? i test it out. >> i'm watching everything he's doing in real-time. i'm going to buy some gloves for when i get back home. for the cold. >> he just entered in his visa information. his visa card number is -- >> and then i'm going to log into my e-mail. >> he just logged in. there is his e-mail address. and there's his pass warword. >> so how do you protect yourself? use your cell carriers 3g or 4g when banking or shopping. it's more secure. and ask the hotel for the name of its wi-fi and shut off the auto join function so your phone doesn't join a fake network without you even knowing it.
