t now crews are looking for a dozen people still missing after flames ripped through a tour boat off the southern california coast. why firefighters say conditions contributed to a worst case scenario. and a live look from south florida right now where they are playing the waiting game as dorian's path through the atlantic slows to a crawl. when the monster storm could finally hit. and the warriors new home, the chase center, officially opens up today. the road to the upcoming season for the warriors and how fans will get there. >> looks fantastic out there. good morning. it is tuesday, september 3rd. i'm kenny choi. we want to quickly welcome back gianna, who has been off for the last several months. >> had a baby. i've got two boys at home. thank you for having me back and i look forward to being here and thanks to emily turner for doing a great job. >> she did. >> check in with gianna in just a bit for the roads.
6:01 am
but right now a look at the forecast. >> here is a live look with our treasure island camera with that gray start to the day, we are looking at temperatures in the mid to upper 50s to low 60s. so your micro climate forecast taking you through the afternoon, looking at temps a little bit cooler compared to yesterday, near average, daytime highs for this time of year. breezy for the coast, in the mid-60s, the clouds hanging around for you. eventually we will have that clearing for the bay, breezy, in the upper 60s to low 70s. and for our inland locations upper 80s to low 90s with that sunshine. we will talk about a cooldown as we head through the week and the latest on hurricane dorian coming up. gianna. checking the roadways, we do have a trouble spot as you work your way across the richmond san rafael bridge, not far from the toll plaza, causing slight delays but not causing any delays. left-hand on the center divide westbound near the toll plaza. live look through there, traffic is starting to stack up, especially filling in as
6:02 am
you approach the scene. so careful as you head through there, give yourself a few extra minutes if you're making that commute between 80 and 101. over towards the san mateo bridge, we did get word of a trouble spot right at the toll plaza here as well, westbound 92 as you get onto the span, looks like some debris was in the roadway blocking at least one lane. no word yet if that's been cleared out of lanes but we are starting to see some brake lights as you head out of hayward into foster city. new details this morning on that deadly boat fire off the coast of santa barbara. at least 25 people are dead, nine others still considered missing. and now we are learning some of the victims could be from santa cruz. the conception charter boat went up in flames around 3:00 a.m. yesterday off the santa barbara coast. >> the vessel fully engulfed now? >> roger and there's no escape hatch for any of the people on board. >> more than 30 passengers were likely asleep below the deck, five crew members narrowly escaped and had to be rescued by another boat. they told rescuers that the
6:03 am
passengers were celebrating three birthday parties including one for a 17-year-old girl. >> this is probably the worst case scenario you could possibly have to be in a remote location, have a fire that occurs, have limited, if any, firefighting capabilities and then to have all of a sudden a fire that spread very rapidly. >> the passengers were all experienced scuba divers. authorities say the conception boat had an excellent safety record. and we are still waiting for official word on the victims' identities including the students and parents from santa cruz. our emily turner is live in santa cruz this morning where grief counselors will be at pacific collegiate school this morning. emily. >> reporter: yeah, this is pacific collegiate school. it's in santa cruz, not far from the ucsc campus, their first bell rings at 8:15. as you can imagine, this is going to be a somber day, likely for the students who show up as well as their parents. at this point several parents from the school have confirmed that at least two students here
6:04 am
as well as at least two parents were on board that ship, at least four people now are dead at this point. grief counselors, you said, will be here on scene to talk to students as well as anyone who needs to be talking to a grief counselor. but again, 8:15 this morning is when the first bell rings and we will likely be able to talk to some folks there. but again it's going to be a very somber morning here in santa cruz. reporting live, back to you. >> emily, thank you. now to our storm watch. hurricane dorian downgraded to a category 3. forecasters say the deadly storm is hanging over the bahamas, continuing to pound the same areas. and this video coming into our newsroom showing what it looks like. looks like the middle of an ocean but it's actually just right outside the grand bahama international airport. showing that area completely flooded. take a live look now in florida. you can see the conditions in cocoa beach right now. it getting a lot grayer out there.
6:05 am
a lot of clouds in this shot. millions of people across the state have been ordered to evacuate as the storm is expected to slowly approach the coastline in just a matter of hours. for now residents in florida have done all they do to prepare. some have evacuated but others are hunkering down and waiting it out. >> a lot of people left friday, saturday and sunday, so the ones that are sheltering in place, they know the risks and we are all in this together. >> officials now say the storm has claimed five lives and damaged thousands of homes. meantime hurricane watches and warnings are in effect from coastal georgia to the carolinas. now check in with mary for an update on where dorian is heading. >> i want to give you the latest on hurricane dorian as it has weakened just a little bit more. so now maximum sustained winds of 115 miles per hour, category 3 storm. here is the radar on hurricane dorian. you can see the feeder bands pushing into daytona beach so
6:06 am
looking at maximum sustained winds, again, of 115. movement northwest at 1 mile per hour. stationary over the bahamas, pounding and battering the bahamas and there is the projected path. now, it does have that possibility just offshore so no longer looking at a direct landfall for florida as well as for georgia, but as it rides just parallel to the coast, we are looking at hurricane forced winds, tropical storm forced winds today and for tomorrow. this is futurecast winds and those purple and red colors indicating damaging, destructive winds. so the latest, the absolute worst case scenario for the bahamas, very close to the florida coast today and tomorrow, we are talking 70- mile-per-hour winds or more possible and really the impact will be the storm surge. the water level rise could top seven to 10 feet. we will talk more about our weather back at home coming up in just a bit. i'm anne makovec at the
6:07 am
live news desk and we are monitoring breaking news out of san jose where it appears that a pedestrian has been hit and killed by a car. this is story road right off of highway 101 and from what we can gather from this scene right now, this happened at around 4:00 this morning. roadways still closed there. this is on some of the side streets so it's not affecting the freeway at this point but police determined that this man was dead after getting reports that somebody was lying there in the lanes on story road. so they blocked it off, made it a crime scene and they have been speaking with witnesses there on scene. this is the intersection of story between knox and felipe avenue. so that is going to be closed for an undetermined amount of time right now as police continue to investigate. we have several calls into them waiting for more confirmed information. back to you. >> thank you. happening today, a milestone moment for san francisco's chase center. the new state-of-the-art sports

6:16 am
all approaches to the bay bridge sluggish. your crash, though, is east of there, obviously, it's as you work your way along 80, not too far from 780, slow and go through vallejo but a couple of cars tangled up and seeing a lot of brake lights as a result, westbound 80 out of fairfield this morning so you will need extra time as you head through there. and again you will see brake lights into vallejo, as well as into berkeley along the east shore freeway. trouble spot on the right-hand side, this is south 880 right at tennyson road, not blocking lanes but busy any way on that nimitz freeway commute south and northbound. southbound starting to see brake lights as you work your way out of hayward especially headed towards the san mateo bridge. earlier trouble spot on the san mateo bridge, debris on the roadway near the toll plaza. looks like they have got that cleared out of lanes. live look at 880, north of there, we are seeing extra volume on that southbound side, still going okay but again brake lights in the hayward northbound, you're looking good here, you're really going to see brake lights as you work

your way towards the macarthur maze. check your forecast with mary. starting off the day with low clouds and areas of fog. even a gray start for our inland locations. live look with our treasure island camera at the bay bridge and you can see the clouds in the sky. temps running in the mid to upper 50s to low 60s once again. so your weather headlines, cloudy morning at the coast, parts of the day and some of our inland locations, highs today will cool down to near average and for tomorrow, tracking some monsoonal moisture from the desert southwest, that will bring in more clouds and the chance for some instability so a slight chance of a shower for tomorrow. here's the reason why. there is that ridge of high pressure over the desert southwest. that's going to usher in monsoonal moisture for tomorrow. for today, we are looking at low pressure system to our west and that's going to bring that onshore flow and that's the reason why it's a gray start this morning. temps a little bit cooler today compared to yesterday and we will continue on that cooldown as we head through the week. so taking you hour by hour on

6:33 am
>> hillary, we spoke to you around the same time yesterday. are people letting their guard down now that the storm may not hit with quite the intensity that we first expected? >> reporter: i think you have people in two camps. some people -- people are getting desensitized. we have been saying for days the storm is coming, the storm is coming. it was originally supposed to hit the area over the weekend but it's stalling. some people are saying where's the storm? we don't have to leave. but on the other side people are seeing the devastating images from the bahamas. they are watching the news, looking at the radar and seeing the storm approach and they are saying, wow, this is the time we have to get out of the area to stay safe. >> quite scary situation out there in florida for a lot of people there this morning with evacuation orders in effect. hilary lane reporting for us live in daytona beach, florida this morning. thank you for that update. meanwhile on the other coast, the search and rescue effort off the santa barbara coast has turned into a
6:34 am
recovery mission this morning. this comes as we have learned that several people from near the bay area were on board that boat as the fire erupted. as of this morning, at least 25 people are confirmed dead. nine others still missing. and a parent at pacific collegiate school in santa cruz says two students and at least two parents were trapped on board. one boat owner was able to save four staff members on board and then bring them to safety. >> i wish i could have picked all 35 of them up. all of them. i got the space. you know, if they could have gotten in the water, i could have got them out of there. >> we are expected to learn the latest on this investigation at a press conference in just a few hours at 10:00 this morning. and taking a live look at pacific collegiate in santa cruz where grief counselors will be at the school this morning. meantime, none of the victims has officially been identified. i'm anne makovec at the live news desk and we just got confirmation from police this
6:35 am
was a deadly hit-and-run that occurred here early this morning on story road. a car hit a pedestrian, left him for dead in the middle of story road. this is right at the southbound 101 off-ramp and took off. so police are now trying to find this vehicle, looking for clues as to what kind of vehicle, who this person might have been. this happened at around 4:00 this morning and right when they got there, they blocked off this area as a crime scene. they have been speaking with witnesses, but it was so early, 4:00 a.m. that there weren't a lot of people around. they are going to have to scour the area for any cameras that might help with their investigation. right now story at felipe is going to be closed until 9:00 a.m. also keeping an eye on a structure fire we just heard about in san ramon. this is on canyon village circle. that broke out at around quarter to 6:00. trying to find out more information about that fire right now. back to you.
6:36 am
6:35 right now. today is a big day for san francisco's chase center where in just four hours a ribbon cutting event will be held to mark the big opening to the public on friday. michelle griego is live in front of chase center this morning in mission bay with a special guest out there. good morning. >> reporter: i know. he is our special guest. politico insider phil, woke up early to come out and talk with us this morning. >> i wouldn't want to miss it. >> reporter: i appreciate it. let's talk about this new arena. the warriors announced it in 2012 that this is coming to san francisco and here we are today, only, what, seven years later, opening it up. this is pretty fast. >> amazingly fast. you have to understand that when this was announced, the 49ers were getting up to move down to santa clara and there was a feeling in san francisco, there was a recession on. there was a feeling in san francisco that possibly the city had seen its day. people were talking about the new forces were down in san jose or in other parts of the
6:37 am
area. they grabbed this, mayor ed lee, the board of supervisor, all the politicians signed off before they looked at it and they made a point of getting it done as fast as possible. and it might sound like seven years is a long time but usually seven years in san francisco is before you even break down, let alone open up so record time. >> reporter: and they just broke ground in 2017 and here we go. everyone was concerned about the money, where all the money came from to get this bill. >> it's private money. now, that's a trade-off. you know, we didn't put tax dollars into building the chase center, just like didn't put tax dollars into building the giants ballpark. but as a result of that, they had to come up with this financing and it's not cheap. they sold seat licenses and the seat licenses, there's a question of people out there, the new prices which are going to be a lot higher to pay the mortgage, are they going to keep out some of the old timer fans. >> that's the big question. it's a big controversy because you have a lot of fans very loyal fans that have gone
6:38 am
generations of fans for the warriors, a lot of them living in the east bay. not only do they have to pay the higher prices but now pay for transportation, now parking, it's a lot. >> life is rough. >> in the bay area especially, right? >> yes. they get a fan base more also that can come up from the peninsula now. there's a trail. i think the fans are going to come, but this isn't just about basketball. >> reporter: right. >> it's the chase center. and the warriors were intent not only on buying the owners a basketball team, they wanted an event center. and this is -- there's going to be 200 events here a year. some of those about 80 of those are going to be basketball games but we are also talking concerts and we are talking, you know, family events, but we are also talking about using this as a convention center as well to hook up with the downtown and so this is going to be used much more than just for basketball. this is a whole new addition to the city for tourism, for conventions and all that. >> so this is really big for the city. >> it is.
6:39 am
and it's also -- you know, it's symbolic. san francisco has a couple of iconic buildings. fisherman's wharf was the days when san francisco was the gold rush and a blue collar working town. the transamerica tower, that was the symbol of san francisco as a financial center for the west coast. and during the '70s and '80s that's what it was. the salesforce tower and this is the symbol of the new tech and the whole city moving from that part further south. this is the new park center of san francisco because it's not just the chase center that's gone up in the last seven years. it's about every building around here has gone up in the last couple of years. this used to be railway yards and you can't find anything, a spare parking place down here anymore. >> reporter: but you know what's cool is looking at it and looking at some of the buildings surrounding it, it doesn't stand out too much. it looks like it flows. >> it's not towering, not any bigger the other buildings. it's sitting in there among all those buildings.
6:40 am
what we don't have in front of us usually if we were at some other arena would be a parking lot, a very good parking lot and instead we have got one street between us and them. it will be interesting to get people in and out of here. >> reporter: this friday so exciting, metallica and the san francisco symphony collaborating together. it's been 20 years since they have been doing this collaboration. have you ever heard the two mixed? >> no, i haven't. that was over in berkeley. this is going to be a rematch of that and then going to have a whole string of other shows that are going to be rolling through here before the season opens. so what we are going to have is sort of the entertainment opening of the chase center and then the basketball. i think we are going to have ribbon cutting coming up. >> reporter: the ribbon cutting ceremony today at 10:30, governor gavin newsom will be here and san francisco mayor london breed. thank you so much for coming and waking up this morning. >> all right. >> reporter: we will get you coffee too. kenny, back to you. >> stay warm. >> thank you. it looks stunning out there. time now 6:40. tesla is going vegan. we will explain what's behind
6:41 am
the new announcement from the electric car maker. and the stock market just opened up about 10 minutes ago. as we take a look at the board, it is down more than 280 points. we will get an update from kcbs radio's financial reporter jason brooks. it's time for the biggest sale of the year on a
