6:06 am
again, when they do their inspections today. there were inspections done on the building before it opened just a month or so ago. no cracks were found so somehow some major stress has been put on the beams to cause the crack. we are hoping to get an update on the entire situation sometime around noon today. obviously we will keep a close eye on this throughout the day and throughout the week until they figure out what happened. >> closed indefinitely. we have no idea how long this will last. and, while things may look like a mess at street level, san francisco looks pretty cool from a of right now. >> the thin layer of fog as we start the day once again. we are looking at the sunshine for parts of the day and for inland locations. but this is the view. a live look at our salesforce tower camera. that thin layer of fog as we kick up your wednesday. you can see the lights.
