5:01 am
pam cook. >> and good morning, i'm dave clark. lots to talk about with weather and traffic. let's go to steve. >> absolutely. wind advisory 40-50 miles an hour. stronger up in the hills. i've seen 60. its a northerly breeze. it will turn more north easterly. petaluma 55 miles an hour. fairfield 53. half-moon bay 44. the oakland hills 63. at last check 56. livermore up to 36 miles an hour gust. napa 24. you can see its all out of the north, northeast. as long as that holds there will be temperatures -- there will be warmer temperatures in the north bay. if it wasn't for the breeze, these would be much, much colder. tomorrow morning ordinary person sunday morning they will collapse inland to some 30s. this is extremely dry air mass. its all down here. that is the reason why its so windy. as that low slowly moves to the
5:02 am
east, the winds will decrease gradually. so our wednesday system has moved in. high pressure has moved into the north and it fills it with that wind. i'll tell you north, northeast wind helps some. so windy, sunny today. chilly to mild on these highs. breezy all day or blustery. not as bad. highs can go anywhere from upper 50s 60s to upper 70s. we do have problems on the winds with the -- problems on the roads with the winds and now with the trains. if you are driving across the bridge today, you will notice more winds and also you are going to notice that there may be more cars. if there is no bart service, you will see people resorting to the car and that may mean bigger delays for you. also the morning commute is okay in oakland. but again as steve mentioned especially in the hills it is very gusty winds. no service on bart until further notice. they are hoping to have train
5:03 am
service up soon. but the computer issues have not been resolved. now i just saw a tweet from bart saying we hope to have service restored by 6:00 a.m.. and the bart tweet says please use other means of transportation. we're on it. out at the west oakland bart station we will let you know what happens. expect more traffic on the roads. let's go back to dave and pam. that is our big breaking news this morning. no bart service at this hour. it will take maybe an hour to get the trains running. a major computer problem over night led to that system-wide shut down. ktvu tara moriarty is joining us now from the west oakland bart station. >> reporter: yeah we had initially thought by 5:00 these trains would be back up and running but bart is saying the goal is 6:00. passengers very frustrated. not happy after all of the ups and downs of the bart strike. so we are standing by here. we are waiting for a bart official to come out here and give us another update.
5:04 am
but they had hoped to get this problem fixed by now. the computer systems in central control are apparently not communicating properly with the track switches. train operators are having to manually crank systems in order to root the train. this glitch happened shortly before midnight and effected 19 trains with up to 1,000 people on board and they couldn't fix the problem over night. >> all you can do at this point is wait. i work with computers so i kind of get the idea that glitches occur sometime. its not like this occurs a lot. but it does inconvenience a lot of people. i think where everybody is frustrated is the fact that hey, we just went through abated strike. >> stations are open. you can't catch a train again but you can see some of them running. bart says simply putting them into place staging so they would be prepared. the latest for bart is they are shooting for 6:00 this morning
5:05 am
to get things back on track. live from west oakland i'm tara moriarty ktvu channel 2 news. look at this. 5:04. severe wind gusts causing many dangerous situations across the bay area. so far at least two people were killed. thousands have no electricity. winds reached 65 miles an hour. big trees were uprooted. power lines were knocked down. it has been a mess. claudine wong is joining us live. you are in oakland. one of the hardest hit areas. >> reporter: yes, it is still am mess out here. we are on 36th street and martin luther king junior way. you can see am tree in the street blocking these lanes of traffic. this is not an unusual sight.

i wanted you to take a look down the street. when that tree fell crews came out. and while they were out here another tree fell and another. up above us that is 580. we were up on the freeway and got video of what it looked like there because they had to shut down that exit. its the west street exit. so you will see that if you are heading in that direction. there are crews up there right now trying to clear that off and get traffic back moving again. but its not just damage. we are also dealing with deaths. because this wind storm has taken at least two lives. let's take you now to foothill and austin. a man was standing on the street around 8:00 last night when the winds knocked down a power line. that power line hit that man and electrocuted him and killed him. over on skyline boulevard near brandy rock way there was another fatality. in that case the driver of a
5:07 am
volkswagen was trying to avoid debris in the roadway when the driver swerved and hit a tree head on and killed. so it has been a very, very difficult night. a deadly night over night and the wind continues this morning. it will continue throughout the morning. back live out here there they are trying to take that branch off of that west street exit. we saw them pick this stuff up and dump it over the side as they try to get the roadway back up and cleared. it looks like that should happen sooner than later in this situation. but again we've been driving around oakland and seeing problems throughout the city and cleanup crews are busy and it will take them awhile to clean things up. we are just hearing about another incident. we will head there now and bring you another update. live in oakland claudine wong ktvu channel 2 news. >> all over the bay area trees are falling on top of cars. just last night a large tree

5:34 am
so train operators and track crews have to manually crank those systems in order to route the train. that takes some time. this glitch happened before midnight and effected 19 trains with nearly 1,000 people on board. and then they couldn't fix the problem over night so the service didn't resume at 4:00. >> i will have to drive to san francisco. >> reporter: that is a real pain. >> it is a pain. its always been a pain. too much pain.
