slowdowns out the door. we're tracking slow speeds along 280. no reports of crashes or stalls but we'll check in with chp and get a closer look at that coming up in the next traffic report. if you are making your way through san jose along 101, speeds remain in the green moving right at the limit there and looking excellent over at the bay bridge toll plaza. easy driving as you head on into san francisco. back to you guys. >> thank you. a new report suggests several bay area courthouses pose a considerable safety risk should a major earthquake strike. kpix 5's jessica flores is live in oakland with the details. jessica. >> reporter: michelle, that's right. actually, nine bay area courthouses would be unsafe during an earthquake and this building behind me the alameda county administration building has two civil courts on the 3rd and 4th floors. it actually was ranked the second worst building in california for earthquakes and the worst courthouse for earthquakes is actually in southern california in glendale. this is all according to a new
state report in total the report found 56 california trial court buildings pose a risk to human and building safety in the event of earthquake. the report gives state lawmakers recommendations as to which courthouses urgently need funding for retrofitting. this is coming at a time also when the state has lost about $1.4 billion in court construction funds. the report based the rankings on the location of the building and also structural characteristics. so among the high risk court buildings in the bay area you have sonoma county hall of justice, contra costa county richard bay district, contra costa county wakefield taylor courthouse in martinez, and alameda county fremont hall of justice and san francisco hall of justice. the next step is a consultant will create a short list of 20 to 25 buildings where funding should be directed. now, as for funding to retrofit the building behind me the alameda county administration
building it will cost about $64 million. a report is expected at the early 2018 updated report as to which buildings that they should be directing this funding. live in oakland, i'm jessica flores, kpix 5. the mayor of santa clara is working to make sure the 49ers management feels the sting of breaking the law. they are now facing a $1,000 fine because a u-2 concert at leave ran beyond a 10 p.m. curfew rule. in a statement, the city said, quote, we will pursue all appropriate legal action and take steps to this doesn't happen again. >> we made a promise to our community. so we cannot aaffect their quality of life. it's already affected in terms of traffic, litter, garbage, et cetera. >> a 49er spokesman said they are not sure why the show ran beyond 10 p.m. but asked the city for a curfew extension in january and was rejected. a san jose man will spend a
year jail after a street case. two drivers were speeding down yerba buena road when one veered off the road. his car pinned 24-year-old kiran pabla against a tree less than a mile from her home. since the accident, the city has installed rumble strips and other safety northbound side address the speeding issue there. as the temperatures warm up, lots of people are expected to flock to bay area beaches this weekend but officials are warning beach-goers to be extra careful. kpix 5's anne makovec is live at ocean beach in san francisco where strong rip currents are expected. anne. >> reporter: yeah. not only are we going to see a lot of people heading to the beach because the weather is going to be so warm this weekend it's also "bay to breakers" day here on sunday. that means allotted of people who end the race here at ocean beach might be tempted to take a dip. unfortunately, a lot of those people are also going to be drunk. so there is some danger here this weekend when it comes to these rip currents. there is a sign here beside me.
but a lot of people simply ignore it. ocean beach is rank one of the most dangerous beaches in the united states. the biggest threat is those rip currents that can catch even experienced swimmers off guard. more than 80% of lifeguard rescues at the country's surf beaches involve people caught up in rip currents. and there is not a lot of lifeguard coverage here at ocean beach. so the best advice you may have heard it before, swim parallel to the shore until you are out of the current and then swim toward the beach. there's going to be a demonstration about that here today at ocean beach starting at 10:00. live in san francisco, anne makevoc, kpix 5. syria sweden is dropping its investigation into rape claims against julian assange. in 2012 he took refuge in ecuadors embassy in london to escape extradition to sweden. he has been there ever since fearing that if he is arrested

protect care for millions of americans. the issue stems from a lawsuit filed by house republicans in 2014 seeking to block billions of dollars in payments to insurance companies to subsidize lower income americans. the lawsuit is still ongoing and the trump administration seems unlikely to fight to preserve the funding. they are asking the federal court to allow the states to directly defend the law. in a tweet, becerra says, thanks to the aca, over 5 million people in california receive quality affordable healthcare many for the first time. protect our care. if payment to insurance companies ends, becerra says coverage would drastically change for millions of americans. he also added that there's no way to predict the direction of the trump white house. >> so what happens if congress passes the new healthcare plan? >> this is moot. earlier this month the health passed the american healthcare act. now the senate is writing its own version of the bill but

the worst is actually in southern california. in glendale. the state report found 56 california trial court buildings pose a risk to human and building safety in the event of an earthquake. the report gives lawmakers recommendations as to which courthouses urge gently need funding for retrofitting. the cost of doing the 12 highest building would be $320 million. this is at a time when the state already lost about $1.4 billion in court construction funds. so other high risk court buildings in the bay area include the sonoma county hall of justice, contra costa county richmond bay district, contra costa county wakefield taylor courthouse in martinez, alameda county fremont hall of justice, and san francisco hall of justice. now retrofitting the alameda county administration building alone would cost $64 million. a final report is expected in early 2008p i'm jessica flores, kpix 5. a danger for beach-goers looking to cool off near the

gorgeous weekend here. we are looking at temperatures around 70 in pacifica where they also have rip currents but we'll have a lot of people in particular on sunday because the big "bay to breakers" race ends right here. so hoping everybody is going to heed the warnings. live in ocean beach, anne makevoc, kpix 5.

surfers will tell you it's dangerous with the rip currents very close to the coast, and so anne makovec giving us some great advice out there this morning. thanks, anne. we have established a weather camera there. and boy, it's beginning to brighten up. the temperature right now san francisco 54. same right around ocean beach. 50 santa rosa. mid-50s in oakland. looks like the marine layer just hanging off the coast. when it happens temperatures will go down. we'll keep an eye on that. san francisco average high 64. today we're forecasting 74 degrees. oakland should be at 68 instead low 80s. should be in the mid-70s in concord instead 90 degrees. 60s will be common at the beaches today approaching 70 in pacifica. right around 70 to 72 degrees same on saturday but we'll start to see the return of the morning overcast conditions. 80s to 90s nearly in redwood
