"today in the bay's" pete suratos live from oakland with more detail. good morning, pete. >> reporter: good morning to you. as you mentioned, oakland sanctuary city status has really put it at odds with president trump and the trump administration over the years so that makes this report that much more interesting. now let's talk about this new report, it comes to us from the bay area news group. it shows the oakland airport was the staging ground for nearly a thousand flights chartered by u.s. immigration and customs enforcement between 2010 and 2018. the flights were booked to either deport immigration det n detainees or move them to another detention center. the report says i.c.e. moved 43,000 people in and out of that airport during that time period, and according to that report,
6:33 am
says that i.c.e. agents actually stopped chartering these flights out of oakland back in october of last year. as i mentioned, president trump and oakland mayor libby schaaf have clashed on this issue in the past when it comes to the sanctuary city status most notably the mayor warned of an immigration raid in the city. the trump administration was none too pleased about it. we reached out to the mayor about the report. reporting live in oakland,s abouts. for ed pete suratos for "today in the bay." happening today, immigration issues will likely be front and center when bay area congressman anna eshoo holds a town hall in the south bay. she returned from a visit to two detention centers on the texas border. she met with immigrant families and volunteers. that town hall takes place at 6:30 at the mountain view community center. concord police trying to track down a driver in a deadly hit-and-run. a motorcyclist struck a car a

6:35 am
commute and may leave you a little confused. "today in the bay's" bob redell joins us live in alameda county. it could leave people challenged if they've never seen it before. >> reporter: correct, laura. the traffic engineers argue it will be safer for drivers once they get used to it. think about your typical freeway interchange, you usually come to a stop sign or stoplight and have to most likely turn left into oncoming traffic. that's not the case with the diverging diamond interchange or ddi, and i suggest you take a look of ayour tv screen and check out this animation. when you exit the freeway in a ddi configuration, you veer at 45-degree angle across the center divide. you come to a stoplight, then you cross sides with the opposing traffic. you are now briefly driving on the left side of the road. you have the option for a smooth transition onto a new direction to travel on the freeway or crisscross back to the right side of the road to resume
6:36 am
travel in the current direction. the number of conflict points, are almost cut in half from 26 in a traditional left-hand turn interchange to 14 with the ddi, according to traffic engineers. the "san francisco chronicle" reports engineers are considering this design for the ashby avenue interchange in i-80 in berkeley. one is already in construction in san joaquin county, two more planned for the central valley and utah and nevada already have the ddis. report live in alameda county, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> thanks, bob. will you check your phone on your ride home to work? >> you're not supposed to. what about your work? troubling numbers shows driver and pedestrian deaths are on the rise, the highest number of deaths in 30 years. this morning on "today" kerry sanders shadows police on the

lookout for distracted offenders crossing the street and behind the wheel. >> when the officer just saw you and you had your, you were on instagram. did not tea dawn on you being on the phone was -- >> no, because you're still into it, you don't realize you can get killed. >> it's not worth it. kerry's full report airs at 7:00 a.m. or if you can't stick around, you can watch it later on >> walking across the street looking at your phone instead of looking both ways, yeah. >> it's dangerous. if you have somebody watching their phone and then a driver. >> for sure. hopefully none of that out there today, mike. >> none reported but a word of caution, definitely. especially school crosswalks, parking lots from where my kids get off the car and focused on the thing in their hand or the place where they're going. focus on traffic around you, folks. right now thankfully we don't have anything major going on. we are recovering from an earlier big slowing through hayward, northbound 880 throw from alvarado to tennison. the south bay showing a build

6:39 am
san francisco, staying in the upper 60s there. so we are going to have some places where you can go and cool off. so if you're making beach plans, it's going to be in the mid-70s in santa cruz for both saturday and sunday, just a few clouds passing by at times. if you're going to yosemite this weekend, expect it to be warm, going from 82 degrees on friday to 85 on saturday, and up to 86 degrees on sunday. all clear skies, and hot temperatures in napa valley this weekend, and it will reach into the upper 80s on friday, but then look at saturday, that's the hottest day of the weekend, reaching 93 degrees. if you're going to l.a., upper 70s there, and mostly sunny skies. now, i know it's early in the week, but maybe you're already thinking of what to do this weekend. let me know where you're headed and i can help you with the forecast, @karihallweather on facebook, twitter ayn instagram. we'll talk about what's going on today coming up in three minutes. >> we'll look forward to it. thanks. 6:39, brand new overnight,

6:49 am
from the north bay, it is foggy, and it's really thick in that one spot, while most of san francisco starting to clear out. so we're going to see that linger throughout the day, taking you hour by hour, you can see that marine layer and the fog that's right there in san francisco, and along the coastline, even into this afternoon, but all clear for the inland areas. we have a lot of sunshine, and this is going to cause a wide range in temperatures all throughout the day, but it will clear out as we go into this evening, and then roll right back in. and because we are going to have some hot temperatures in the valleys and spots like san ramon, try to get out early if you want to gut out for a workout, going for a run. any time before 10:00 is comfortable. after that, it will reach into the 80s, upper 80s by 1:00 today. as we go to the south bay, expect some 90s in the south county from morgan hill down to gilroy and cupertino reaching 87 degrees. we'll see a high of 92 in pleasanton today.
6:50 am
in fremont, up to 84 degrees. it's going to stay cool and breezy in half moon bay. up to 65 in daly city and san francisco staying mostly in the 60s today while the north bay tops out at 94 in ukiah. mill valley up to 84 degrees. it will be nice and cool out at the giants game this evening. if you're going there expect temperatures upper 60s first pitch dropping down to the lower 60s and all clear skies, really nice evening. as we go throughout the week there will be a few changes ahead. high pressure sets up across the desert southwest and causes a surge of monsoonal moisture. we're not going to see too much in the way of changes. the fog stays near the bay area and we could also see a few more clouds moving in tomorrow but the rest of the week it just gets hot and our inland temperatures are going to reach into the low to mid-90s. so we go through the forecast with no cooldown here over the
6:51 am
next seven days. in fact, it gets hotter as we approach thursday and san francisco staying in the upper 60s and low 70s. mike, how is it looking now in the east bay? >> kari, we had a couple of issues. a crash over here approaching the merge of 580, that's westbound 80 through richmond. looks like everything's off to the shoulder. you may have your slow lane affected by the crew bewe see minor slowing, recovery from an earlier slowdown and approaching the caldecott. not a major issue. the traffic alert for a few short minutes here, head south, all the minutes are the same length. in any case southbound 242 recovering from earlier closures. those lanes are all open after a brush fire alongside 242. it is still jammed through the area. so you want to probably take highway 4 over here and take 680 down, it's a little bit farther than folks do. we like the cut-through but the corner is the better route today and better issue but no problems for contra costa county outside from the earlier fire, a smooth
6:52 am
flow of the earlier fire, 580 has also been cleared out of the altamont pass and looking at the crash i told you i'd check that out at the bottom of your screen, it's southbound 85, so the northbound slowing is just from the commute traffic flow. it's not a problem there. a live look shows you how things are across the san mateo bridge, also the normal commute flow as to the volume, slowing the traffic westbound but it's quite manageable headed toward the peninsula, and the bay bridge toll plaza, we've seen good movement from the fastrak lanes, that is good movement and now the cash lanes starting to ease up a little bit over on the left approach as well. laura, back to you. >> thank you very much, mike. 6:52. happening now, breaking news out of africa. a bombing in somalia has killed at least 17, another 28 hurt. happened at a hotel near the international airport in mogadishu. an al qaeda linked islamic group is claiming responsibility for that attack. the group trying to topple the somalian government. next on "today in the bay" a quick look at top stories. we have breaking news overfright
