5:02 am
right now chp holding all lanes of traffic due to this crash. speeds below 40 miles per hour even just approaching guadalupe parkway so just a heads up if you are heading into the south bay. bay bridge toll plaza speeds in the green. hold on to that wheel. we have a wind advisory in effect and you have to be careful as you make your way across the span. back to you guys. the trump administration is one step closer to repealing obamacare. a new healthcare plan passed the house. kpix 5's anne makovec joins us now to tell us the impact it may have if it becomes law. >> reporter: this plan would mark a sea change in what americans would expect in healthcare coverage. that is of course if it gets through the senate. the changes in the house plan are profound. the measure would provide tax credits to help people buy insurance. many low income and older americans would get less than
5:03 am
obamacare currently provides. it also allows states to opt out of obamacare's protections for people with pre-existing conditions. replacing them, instead, with federally funded high risk pools. there would be big changes to medicaid. after 2020, no new enrollees would be accepted. the bill scraps the federal mandate that everybody must enroll in healthcare or be taxed. >> premiums will come down substantially. the deductibles are going to come down. >> reporter: nancy pelosi calling it robin hood in reverse. democrats already gearing up to use the issue to take back control of the house in next year's midterms. >> you had every provision of this bill tatooed on your forehead. you will glow in the dark on this one. >> the bill now heads to the senate where it is likely to undergo substantial changes. but not before the
5:04 am
congressional budget office determines its cost and impact, which will be helpful. speaking of impact, a lot of people are wondering how it will affect them. we have a lot more details on that on our website, >> so, anne, what is next it's moves to the senate? >> reporter: the vote in the house is so very slim and the republican majority is even slimmer in the senate. so several gop senators have expressed qualms about the house bill. democrats are united in their opposition. so it's going to be an interesting fight. >> thank you. the transportation safety administration has issued a new security alert warning the nation's trucking companies and their drivers about the use of stolen trucks. the tsa says terrorists could be planning to steal the trucks with the intention of using them as killing machines! the 6-page report obtained by cbs news references 17 known vehicle ramming attacks worldwide in the last three years leading to at least 173 deaths and more than 700
5:05 am
wounded! >> you think we are going to be seeing more of this kind of attack? >> i -- i -- i -- i believe there will be copycats. isis recruits about 50 people a day internationally. >> the tsa warning has also been shared with bus companies and the school bus industry. officials are urging people to be on alert for strange activities that may signal an attack. a special ceremony is planned at noon in san jose today to honor the officers who have died in the line of duty. this is video from a memorial in 2015. mayor sam liccardo will attend at the santa clara sheriff's office. city of san francisco is planning to make some significant parking changes in one neighborhood. but first officials want to hear from the public later this morning. kpix 5's jackie ward is live in the neighborhood with a closer look at the changes. jackie. >> reporter: yeah, kenny. we're live in the outer sunset where the sfmta is proposing a lot of changes for this area
5:06 am
that they say will make it safer and add parking for people. they will have a hearing this morning. let's show you the spots they are talking about. if approved, the stretch of the area between 39th and 40th would get striped bike lanes in both directions similar to what you see here on ortega street. the sfmta will give bicyclists a little more room to ride on. further down vicente between 44th and 46th, the city will change them from parallel to perpendicular to add more spaces. one resident says by making them perpendicular it will allow more cars to park here. but at a price. >> it goes further into the street plus the bike lanes, i think it's going to increase how fast cars drive and in my opinion i work in the tenderloin, more cars, more obstruction, more crime. >> those parking spots that we're adding in were at the request of community petition. people said that there was a need to kind of change the way that the parking works in the
5:07 am
area so by adding perpendicular parking we were able to add five parking spots in the project area. >> reporter: another slight change that would happen here between 39th and 40th, while the angle of the parking spot wouldn't change, how the drivers would be forced to park would. instead of parking front in, the city says by parking back in, it would actually make it easier for drivers to see other traffic as they leave the space. so nothing is sentenced though yet so they are having another public hearing this morning at 10 a.m. at city hall. and if approved, the sfmta will discuss that at a board meeting. in san francisco, jackie ward, kpix 5. a live look outside right now from oakland. across the bay, you can see the "salesforce tower" one of the newest additions to the san francisco skyline. and only on "5," we are getting our first look at that art display that will grace the top of the tower. the electronic display will
5:08 am
have 11,000 l.e.d. lights with varying colors and designs. a video projection will show scenes from around the city. at 1,000 feet high, or 61 stories it will be the tallest public work of art in america. unlike other light displays, this one will be soft and muted and that's the point. >> instead of looking at the harsh lights, they face the wall or in the case of the tower, they face the side of the building. so you get a much softer image here because it's reflected instead of directed. >> if all goes to plan it will be unveiled this fall. time now 5:08. dead sharks are washing up at bay area beaches. what researchers think may be behind the mystery. >> reporter: and why are south san francisco parents sleeping in tents? they are doing it for their children. i'm jessica flores. i'll have the story coming up. >> from the kpix weather center, good morning, everyone. today is going to be cooler
5:09 am
than yesterday. but not as cool as tomorrow. the full weekend forecast is straight ahead. >> and a live look at your ride along 580 right at 680. that dublin-pleasanton interchange traffic getting busy out there. also tracking a new crash in the area. and an update for you on that accident in san jose coming up. ,, ♪ "turn around... every now and then i get a little bit hungry and there's nothing really good around. turn around... every now and then i get a little bit tired of living off the taste of the air... turn around, barry. i finally found the right snack."♪

forecast in just a few minutes. there's a mystery in the bay. researchers are trying to figure out: good morning. it's 5:11. you made it to friday, wahoo! it's cinco de mayo on top. we are under a layer of low clouds and fog, condensation, some drizzle. we do have cooler temperatures today for the weekend, as well. we have your complete traffic and weather report coming up in less than 4 minutes. there's a mystery in the bay. researchers are trying to figure out what is killing so many sharks. leopard sharks are dying off in droves like this one that washed ashore in burlingame yesterday. most of the sharks are getting washed up around the foster city and redwood shores area. several others have been found in alameda, marin and san francisco. and it's been happening for about 7 weeks. >> so from a conservation perspective, it's very serious. it's not critical. this is timed with their annual breeding cycles. >> tests show a viral and
5:13 am
fungal infection is somehow making its way into the sharks' brains. researchers think rain runoff is causing the problem. no word from fish and wildlife officials. parents are camping out to sign up their kids for after- school programs. jessica flores reports from orange memorial park where the parents are catching in the chilly weather -- are camping in the chilly weather. >> reporter: it's chilly and misty. if you want to see some dedicated parents come out here to south san francisco in front of parks and rec building. they have been out here for hours. they are sleeping now but registration opens at 7 a.m. they are all lined up hoping to get a spot for their children in one of these after-school programs. they are kindergarten through fifth grade. the programs are designed to provide academic support and parks and rec officials say the
5:14 am
programs also provide cultural enrichment. they have play day curriculum. returning families are preregistered. the parents in this group are hoping to get the remaining spots. >> well, for me, for my program, i'm actually number 2 on the list. and it's, like, 10 spots. so i'm doing okay. i don't know about everybody else. >> reporter: parks and rec say they will open up waiting lists for those who don't get a spot. the programs are monday through friday 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. these programs are especially important for working parents. instead of propping their kids in front of tvs or sending them to grandmother's, they can go here and engage with other students. it's critical for some. other parents have to wait and hope that get some of these spots here. reporting live in south san francisco, i'm jessica flores, kpix 5. >> we just heard that mom
5:15 am
mentioning 10 spots. how many kids can the program actually take? >> reporter: there's different programs here but total there are 600 spots. but there are thousands of children in the district, thousands of k through fifth grade students for the spots that may not get one of these spots so only 600 spots. that's very limited. obviously. for these parents. that's why they are out here hoping to snag one of those spots. back to you. >> thank you. it is 5:15 right now. let's check the roads with jaclyn. >> reporter: good morning. and we have been tracking that accident in the south bay along southbound 101 right near brokaw. at one point chp was holding traffic due to the major injury crash. looks like they are in the clearing stages of that accident. speeds are starting to resume in those lanes. you may see activity in the area. traffic is able to get by now in both directions.

5:20 am
in the play-offs and there is one basketball legend though who is going against them. charles barkley stopped by the late show last night and made another bet with stephen colbert. >> you owe me some money, don't you? >> i do, because this is the last time you were on here we talked about your golf swing which is the -- >> legendary. >> it's terrible. [ laughter ] >> and we made a bet and the bet was, i said that the warriors would win last year. >> you were wrong. >> i was wrong. >> let it roll off your tongue. >> i was wrong. >> okayist wrong. >> we bet a round of golf. >> you want to run the bet again and make it two rounds of golf? i'm still going against the warriors. >> i'll go with the warriors this time because i think they're hungry. >> they were hungry last time. >> hungrier. they are hungrier this time. they have something to prove this time. >> he is always hating on the warriors. i like the fact that colbert though is at least going for them. barkley went on to say the players have it a little easier nowadays. he says back in the day, they
5:21 am
never had rest periods. and he always had to fly commercial. and i'm dennis o'donnell. coming up, are the warriors unbeatable when draymond starts knocking down outside shots? probably. the highs and lows of draymond green's night in game 2 coming up. >> plus, what's cool about your school? email your nomination to us at and we may feature your school on the show. food. water. internet. we need it to live. but what we don't need are surprises, like extra monthly fees. i see you, fee, played by legendary actress anjelica huston. you got me, mark. we just want fast internet for one, simple rate. for all the streaming and the shopping and the newsing, but most of all... for the this.
5:22 am
5:23 am
5:24 am
good morning, everybody. the warriors last lost a game on april 11th. their opponent then, the utah jazz. but now utah doesn't look close to winning a game in the play- offs. draymond a defensive monster in game one. last night, he shot the ball. knocking down five of eight from beyond the arc. the warriors ran up a 20-point lead in the 1st quarter. let's go to the third. up 11. look at this feed to kevin durant. 25 points. 7 assists. but utah scored 35 in the third. thanks mostly to that man! gordon hayward the former butler cut the warriors leads to single digits. there was a nervous moment later when draymond tweaked his knee. he left the game later returned. but keep an eye on that. under 4 minutes to go warriors up 11. steph curry puts the game away with a kiss off the glass and
5:25 am
no, he did not call it. warriors won game 2, 115-104. >> what are your thoughts on keeping the team motivated and focused having not been tested yet in the play-offs? >> i'm going to switch seats with you next game. [ laughter ] >> then you let me know if you thought that was easy. [ laughter ] >> i mean, i knew my knee was just locking up a little bit. i had it before. one time it happened when i was in college and i rebounded in michigan two days later the whole team. that was pretty good. >> game three saturday in utah. game 4 on monday. quick baseball note. the oakland a's make it a laugher actually sort of. they beat minnesota 8-5. i'm dennis o'donnell. see you tonight. what is next for american healthcare? big debate going on at the nation's capital. and around the country. coming up, what is next for the gop plan?

kind of like this look. i'm calling it the "name your price tool" phase. whatever. inside... and bay area students sue their school over suspen police revealing more details about why a bay area couple was murdered at home with their children inside. >> cyber bullying, we'll hear from one of the alleged victims. >> i'll talk about the changes you need to know about in the weather. >> and will we say good-bye to "friday light" at the bay bridge toll plaza we will. coming up in the next traffic
5:30 am
update we'll have a closer look the ayour drive times. >> good morning. it's friday may 5, i'm michelle griego. >> i'm kenny choi. we start with the new healthcare plan. president trump promised to repeal and replace obamacare and now it's happening. >> anne makovec joins us now to tell us what's next. >> reporter: yesterday was huge but this is really only the beginning of this debate. it is now heading from the house where it passed to the senate where it may have changes. and we're also going to hear soon from the congressional budget office on this bill's cost and impact which will be interesting. what we do know is that it will provide tax credits to help individuals buy insurance. but many low income and older americans would get less than they do under current law. insurers would be able to charge older americans five times more than younger ones. that is capped at 3:1 right now. states would also be allowed to eliminate requirements for insurance plans that cover
5:31 am
basics like maternity care and emergency services. >> families are real. and the problems facing american families as a result of obamacare are just too dire and too urgent. >> reporter: democrats taking a stand against the plan all voted against it yesterday. the bay area delegation in congress is speaking out across the board. democrat ro khanna who represents silicon valley said the house had a choice, we could cast a vote up to hold our country as values and keep people healthy, keep them secure and keep improving care. or a vote that could be made that places corporate interests ahead of working families' livelihood. i'm disappointing to say the latter happened. end quote. we know a lot of people are wondering how this new plan will affect them. we have details on our website, >> it seems like concern over the republican plan is about pre-existing conditions. >> reporter: that is the biggest flashpoint and that could have the biggest impact on people's lives. insurers under obamacare were
5:32 am
forbidden from refusing coverage to people who already had medical conditions like aids, cancer or heart problems. and those people could not be forced to pay more. well, the house plan's alternative is that high risk pools will cover those people. but some say it won't be enough money. we'll know more about that when the cbo weighs in. >> thank you. republicans are also moving forward with a plan to dismantle financial regulations created after the 2008 crisis. the reforms force u.s. banks to hold much higher capital and create a plan to unwind in case of a total failure among other rules. yesterday, a house committee advanced a bill to allow banks to avoid many of the tougher regulations. it would also allow congress to defund the consumer financial protection bureau, a consumer watchdog agency created after the 2008 meltdown. all the recent warm weather could lead to problems in the yosemite valley today. the merced river is above flood stage. a viewer sent thus photo.
5:33 am
the sierra snow is melting and the river could flood in the yosemite valley. it should drop below flood stage by tonight. and that photo is courtesy of phil russell a friend of yours. >> he is my favorite forest ranger in the whole wide world. i just reached out to him about 15 years ago about information about yosemite as far as weather is concerned and we just have this rapport back and forth and he sends neat toes but he was telling me that we're about a foot over flood stage right now with some minor flooding going on there. we anticipate it to reach 2 feet above flood stage by this afternoon as it peaks before it begins to descend. this is all because the absolutely worst thing happened. we went from the rainy season to summer. we didn't have anything in between. so therefore with the hot weather, we have a quick, quick melt of the snowpack in the yosemite area as well as in the tahoe region. let's get right to our forecast right now. we do have that right there, this is the view from the transamerica pyramid. generally, when i shared this view with you, we could see all
5:34 am
the way to the bright lights of the port of oakland and also the estuary of oakland and we just can't see much right now at all due that layer of low clouds and fog. we are in the 50s across the board. it's breezy on the bay bridge west over from oakland heading to san francisco. hang on to that steering wheel with both hands. 13-mile-per-hour winds in oakland. 16 sfo. 10 in vallejo now, 21 in fairfield. west winds 10 to 20 throughout the day today. a breezy day. clouds will stack up at the coast all day long. otherwise, sunshine away from the beaches. we'll have below average temperatures through the weekend and just a slight, slight chance of rain on saturday night. 50s at the beaches today. no sunshine there. 67 degrees in redwood city. we'll have some sun all the way through palo alto into east palo alto. foster city, burlingame and also in belmont. then we jump up to 70 to the south around the santa clara valley and morgan hill, gilroy
5:35 am
warmer than that. 68 degrees downtown san jose which is actually pretty seasonal. 60s and 70s east of the bay and i giggle about this because wednesday we were at 95 and 96 degrees. again a blustery wind in stinson, no sunshine 64. 70 in sonoma. upstream we go. you will have the sunshine in winchester sore at 71. notable changes for the weekend we'll talk about that still coming up at 48 after the hour. right now, how's it going, jaclyn? >> now, we thought this accident was clear, roberta, but it's actually still blocking lanes. this is in the south bay, southbound 101 right near brokaw. and you can see the backup and we are seeing slowdowns in the northbound direction which is pretty typical for this time of morning along 101. just a heads up you will be tapping on those brakes if you are heading along 101 near guadalupe parkway and brokaw. san mateo bridge taillights westbound out of hayward into foster city. still under 15 minutes. speeds remain in the green. and we have a wind advisory
5:36 am
over at the benicia bridge also on the bay bridge, so please be careful over those spans. looks like they just turned on the metering lights. traffic really starting to back up into the maze. hat's a check of your traffic; over to you. thank you. there are new details about a murder in san jose. we now know a silicon valley executive and his wife were killed by their daughter's ex- boyfriend. officers were called a-to-a home in the willow glen neighborhood -- called to a home in the willow glen neighborhood last night and found the suspect. a police source tells kpix 5 he is mirza tatlic. police say his failed relationship with the victim's daughter is likely the motive. she recently moved to boston to reportedly get away from him. on wednesday night, police say he went to her family's home, took her brother hostage and shot and killed her parents. >> and it's just a tragic, tragic, um, incident perpetrated by evil. >> the 13-year-old brother was released unharmed. police shot and killed the suspect this morning police need
5:37 am
your help to identify three suspects wanted in connection with a violent protest in berkeley a few weeks ago. take a look at these men. officers say that they were all part of the demonstration but more specifically are wanted in connection with a violent attack that happened there. if you have information, call berkeley police. 20 people were arrested last month when protestors clashed in civic center park last month. no one was seriously injured. we're hearing from a student targeted in a racist sexist social media scandal at albany high school. [ indiscernible ] >> picture of cottage cheese saying i was lumpy. >> she says since the pictures came to light she is struggling to concentrate at school. to make matters worse, four of the students who circulated the post are now suing the school
5:38 am
district. they say their suspensions were a violation of their right to free speech. parents of the victims are outraged! >> you don't have a first amendment right to promote a hate crime. >> some of the posts circulated by students showed african- american students photo shopped with nooses around their necks. the sfmta is trying to make things safer but they want input from people. kpix 5's jackie ward joins from us a neighborhood ahead of a public meeting. >> reporter: the block we're standing on in the outer sunset is one small part of a much bigger plan that the sfmta has for this area. there are a lot of little changes that the city says will make a big difference if these get approved. so right now, you will see what are called share arrows on the street that indicate where cars need to be aware of sharing the
5:39 am
road with bicycles. one change between 39th and 40th would get stripes in both directions and then between 44th and 46th, the city wants to change these parallel spots to perpendicular ones in order to add more spaces. but some spaces would actually have to be taken away for what the sfmta calls daylighting. >> it's cars about to make a right turn at an intersection or proceed straight through, if they can't see a kid under 5 feet, 4 feet tall because they are hidden by a parked car, that's not a safe situation. >> reporter: so to make it safer the sfmta says by removing the spots on the corner of intersections by schools, drivers can more easily see people in crosswalks oncoming traffic and kids walking to or from school. so like i said earlier, this is just one small piece of a much bigger plan and agenda that they have for the city. they have a public hearing later on this morning at 10 at city hall if you want to offer
5:40 am
your input. in san francisco, jackie ward, kpix 5. americans could be jumping on board with the future of transportation. plus martha stewart is branching out. ill wagner of reports. >> reporter: good morning. futures right now pointing to a little bit of a higher open. yesterday plunging oil prices dragged down energy stocks. the dow was down 6. the nasdaq rose 2. martha stewart expanding her empire with a skin care and apparel line selling them on qvc. last month she launched an online wine store and partnered with a meal kit delivery service. and the future of transportation is almost here. that could mean very few americans will have their own cars. in a new report analysts predict that by 2030, most americans will use self-driving electric ride shares to get around and they predict it will be about 4 to 10 times less
5:41 am
expensive than buying a car. michelle? >> interesting. i don't know. i like the freedom of a car. so we'll see if that comes to pass. >> who controls the muic ? >> right. >> i'd have to have control of that. jill, we hear that blackberrys could be making a comeback. >> there's a new model called t1 that goes on sale at the end of the month in the u.s. it has that old school physical can he board that everyone loves and a touchscreen. it runs on the android operating system. it has google assistant and will cost about 550 bucks. >> i have to tell you, it took me a long time to get rid of my blackberry. i loved it. >> the keyboard, it was addicting. >> it was. ill wa gner of, have a great weekend. time now 5:41. a special tribute is planned tonight to honor a bay area sports broadcasting legend. >> reporter: and why are south san francisco parents sleeping in tents tonight? they are saying that they are blaming expensive child care.
