♪ >> giving you a live look over oakland waking one partly sunny skies. it's a beautiful start, a warmer start and our temperatures will soar as we get into the afternoon. we'll have an influx of moisture moving through the bay area, it's going to last the next couple of days. i'll explain coming up. this week oakland mayor schaaf and the police chief are going to washington, dc, they will be at the white house talking about 21st century policing. the oakland mayor joins me live in studio to talk about the trip and other issues in the city. tell me about the trip. we know that the president had a report about 21st century policing and outlined different things. what is your trip about and who are you going to be talking
with? >> we're honored because oakland has been recognized as a city that has already implementd many of the relation recommendations in the report. particularly work around being transparent and analyzing stop data. we have an and iovateive partnership with stanford university. and we've been doing a lot of work around procedural justice, how to improve the level of trust with the community, improve accountability and how to make sure the body-worn cameras, that data is being utlied. >> fair to say this is all a work in progress when you talk about oakland and how you're dealing with the issues facing the city. is part of it going -- we also have the challenges and is it going to be a kind of a community kind of working group or is it more of a presentation of 4 is what we know works for sure? >> peel are interested to hear how oakland is -- people are interested to hear how oakland is doing it. we were recognized as one of the leaders. we're the first city i know of
to fully implement body-worn cameras. but it's more than that. wee working with stanford to make transparent to the public our stop data. who are police officers having contact with? what are the despairities? what are the demographics? and how can we analyze those and incorporate training practices so that we are absolutely fair, we do not appear to have any bias and that we actually acknowledge that human beings have unconscious bias, implicit bias and how can we train it out of people? >> the san jose police department is testing them. san francisco wants it in a year. one of the interesting things about the report that they said was we have the body-worn cameras but can't track them. it's a big thing the department of justice wants to do funding to make sure they are working effectively. you leave when? >> we're leaving wednesday and this is an all-day hearing on thursday. we're very excited that the person responsible for that
whole report, ron davis, is going to be convening this group. of course we hope to get a glimpse of the president. we'll see. but we'll be in the white house representing oakland very proudly all day thursday. >> great. i want to touch on one more issue -- coliseum project. it's a confidential deal, i know we can't talk about the specifics but everyone keeps talking about deadlines that are coming forth. the initial proposal was given in june. how are we feeling? we keep hearing about raiders deadlines, owners meeting next week. are we getting close to maybe this is -- the go time? >> our challenge that we're trying very hard to keep all our teams. we have a complex situation here in oakland. the city and county are co- owners of the land where all of our current sports facilities sit and then we are one of the last cities in the country that have shared facilities with both football and baseball
playing in the same place. so we are working on parallel paths, we're working very hard and we pass these proposals back and forth. >> questions and answers -- i guess the question is, when we talk about deadlines is the monday deadline for the response, are we running out of time? if the raiders don't hear from us or you guys or don't make a decision to go with it, is it done by the end of this week? or do we have the time to go back and forth? >> again we're working on parallel paths. we're also talking directly with the raiders about what they want. what are their needs. and those have been very productive talks. although i've been very clear, the city of oakland is not willing to put taxpayer money into this deal. and that does present an issue -- >> a sticking point, big one. >> san diego is willing to do it. other cities are willing to do it. i don't know if anybody caught john oliver's piece on stadium funding this week.
it was pretty funny, if you have not. but we're not going to do that. we are doing a lot of other things. we created a tremendous amount of development value in the land next to the coliseum and that is one way that we can potentially help create income to fund stadium construction. we are exploring something called infrastructure financing. to help bond against new revenues. revenues that don't exist now in order to pay forthat infrastructure that would support a project. >> the conversation was characterized to me as really well with the as, partly with the raiders and kind of nonexistent with the warriors. is that fair? >> i love my warriors. >> i know you do but is that a fair characterization? >> well, i wouldn't say that. the warriors have put a lot of time and energy into a new location in san francisco. it is being met with a lot of resistance and my job is to make sure that, if i can
demonstrate this team can win and this city can celebrate this team in a way that any team should be proud of. i think we did that this year. >> oakland mayor libby schaaf. we look forward to hearing about your trip when we come back. thank you. the let's look at the sunday weather with rosemary. pretty muggy and cloudy. >> it is. giving you a live look there over oakland this morning where tempts are on the mild side. we're going to continue to have the clouds in and out of the bay area for today. our temperatures will be a lot warmer this afternoon. any where from 5 to 10 degrees as we get into the second half. we continue to watch the possibility of showers coming our way. we're seeing it over the central bay. we're seeing it over, i should say central and southern california. now beginning to creep into the bay area as well. off the san mateo county coastline a few sprinkles.
santa cruz earlier this morning had showers, even lightning strikes reported in the area. saw a little bit of activity over sonoma. received a message here. areas around walnut creek in the overnight hours reported a few sprinkles. this is going to be the pattern we see as we get into the next day or two because the moisture is going to keep coming. as we get into monterey, this is where it's been heavy and farther south. in fact southern california set records yesterday for rainfall. it's mid-july. giving you a look at southern california, stretching from sound luis obese poto santa barbara, all the lightning strikes off the coastline. in the bay area, just the slight possibility of a few sprirches and slight possibility or threat there of thunderstorms for the afternoon over the higher elevations. but dolores continues to push to the north. so that moisture is going to continue to push into the bay area for today as well as tomorrow. so we're going to feel warm, we're going to feel muggy. from time to time we'll have spruiks fall from the sky.
76 in fairfield. 69 livermore. 67 san francisco and 65 novato. so already relatively mild. as we get into the afternoon look at these numbers. 93 degrees for antioch today. low 90s in concord. 69 pacifica. 86 san rafael. 88 mountainview. extended forecast is going to show you this is going to be continuing the next couple of days. let's tour the area and look at a few more numbers. 92 pleasanton. 90los gatos. the temperatures warmer than yesterday. notice as you get into the afternoon it's warm and muggy, maybe a few sprinkles. maybe those pop-up thunderstorms over the higher elevations, it's going to last into monday. tuesday we start to dry out. temperatures continue to fall. back into the mid to upper 80s as we get into wednesday and thursday with dry conditions. >> thank you 2016 white house contenders hitting the campaign trail this weekend. the message democratic hopeful hillary clinton had during a
a wildfire burning along i- 15 in southern california is now 45% contained conand the freeway is open again. helicopters had to be grounded for a short time. after five drones were spotted in the fire zone. at one point the flames were moving so quickly people abandoned their cars on the freeway and at that that led to controversy after some towing services charged more than $12,000 to re -- $2,000 to remove the cars from the freeway. first the u.s. women's soccer team won the world cup. now the american men are taking center stage. >> the u.s. men did advance to the semifinals of the gold cup after trouncing cuba 6-0. clint dempsey led the way with the hat trick. three goals.
the u.s. faces jamaica in the semis wednesday. if you're not familiar the gold cup is a competition between countries in north and central america. and the caribbean. two weeks after helping the u.s. women's national team win the world cup former cal star alex morgan will be sidelined because of a right knee injury. she underwent arthroscopic surgery inla friday for a problem in the lining of the knee joint. morgan had a bruise in the left knee before the world cup doctors says this latest surgery is minor but she will be out of action for about a month. the construction project isn't over starting from midnight tonight to 5:00 a.m. highway 1 is going to be closed between lake street and merchant road for demolition work. it was closed last week you may remember. the overnight closures will last through next weekend. some san francisco neighborhoods will be getting to know some new patrol officers. coming up in the 9:00 hour, details on the areas in the city that will be affected
details on when and where it will be rolling into the bay area. >> this is ktvu mornings on 2. >> gotta get down, you know. it's sunday. >> you are still getting down. >> it is sunday july 19. >> good morning everybody. i am brian flores. happy sunday everybody. let's get your day started with my friend rosemary. >> yes friend. >> how are you? >> all good. i love that show, love empire. i am so glad it's coming back. i've got to go camp in the rain. >> you have to end the drought. >> otherwise you would be there. >> a live look here, we are waking up with clouds this morning. it's not the low clouds we typically get. we have a little of that, but that cloud cover is coming from the south. it has to do with the monsoon
al moisture and remnants of dolores moving into the bay area. it is 66 in santa rosa. as a result, we are a lot warmer with 67 san francisco, 69 oakland, 73 livermore, 68 san jose. how much warmer than yesterday? by 11 degrees in fairfield. concord is up by six, seven in napa, upper 60s along the coastline. i received a tweet from antonio in daley city saying it is 69 degrees. thank you for that. it is four degrees warmer in san jose. into the second half of your day, temperatures will be warmer. there is a possibility of a few sprinkles. you see off the cost line earlier this morning in sonoma, we had some overnight over portions of the east bay. it's really active south of us, in and around monterrey, big surf, farther south, lightning
strikes were going off and continue off the coastline even at this hour. overnight, quite the lightning show going on. it has calmed down quite a bit especially over the monterrey area. this will continue into the forecast. notice how the clouds continue to bubble through. into the afternoon we could be partly to mostly sunny over north bay and the cut off might be right in here. this is just a model. that is what we expect for today. temperature wise we will be warmer with a lot of 70s along the peninsula, 80s for inland communities, low 90s closer to the inland valley. we'll talk about how long this pattern is going to last, coming up. we are following new developments from modesto where police are investigating the death of three children and two adults. police confirmed they have located a person of interest in the case. the minnesota police department sent a tweet saying 30 year old martin martinez had been found by san jose police department. police aren't saying what
connection martinez may have had to victims and he has not been called a suspect. police had been searching for him since shortly after the bodies were discovered yesterday. police phenomenal the bodies during a welfare check. so far police have not released information on the victims or circumstances surrounding their deaths. people in the community say the neighborhood is usually quiet. >> you just don't expect that in your neighborhood. you think it's safe. you think it's quiet. then you see this. >> police called it a large crime scene that would take time to process and analyze. the search is over for a 17 year old who broke out of a juvenile detention facility. he and four other teens escaped from the william f james boys ranch in morgan hill. while the other four were quickly caught the 17 year old was taken into custody overnight. specific details of the escape and arrest have not been released but authorities did say "morgan hill police department believes partnering
with our community is a key element to keeping the city safer." here is a map on your screen of the redistricting. there are lots of colors and changes, too many to name. some of the more noticeable include the bay view richmond and northern stations. central stations will also see changes, expanding to justin herman plaza and union square. some are concerned that changes might slow response times and it may take a while to know new police officers. the department says the move will make things more efficient when it comes to resources. we have posted a story listing the changes on the san francisco section of our web page. we turn to the investigation into the military shootings in chattanooga. the family of the gunman issued a statement saying there are no words to describe their shock, horror, and grief. they say mohammed youssef
abdulazeez suffered from depression for years. four marines died thursday and a sailor died from injuries yesterday morning. the father of one of the marines is remembering his son as a hero. >> david was a good father, a good marine. he loved his family. he loved his community, and he loved his country. >> there are two people who survived the shootings, a marine recruiter was shot in the leg and a police officer was shot in the ankle when he responded to the emergency call. several states have taken immediate action to protect service members following the shootings. the florida governor issued executive order to temporarily shut down the state's six military recruitment centers and relocate them to nearby armories. florida is joining five other states including texas and indiana to allow guards men to carry guns. >> i am going to do everything under my power to make sure every member of our national guard is safe. >> the pentagon says it is
reviewing security and military recruiting and reserve centers but it is too early to say whether the facilities should have security guards or other protection. the cup starts hours from now with more than the usual obstacles. christian joins us live with a look at these exotic cars. these are some really interesting very complex projects. >> about an hour ago i tried to make off with one. the folks out here are remarkably fast. they caught me somehow. >> well, you are really slow. >> they made me return it, you know. they said they put a lot of hours into it. i got it. this is what all the races are competing for. this is really a steam pump dream. i told you about that earlier. we are joined by one of the judges who is going to be judging the big rally today,
kevin o'hare. for those not familiar, tell us a little bit about the steam punk culture. >> it actually came about -- think of jewels vern. it's today as by the late victorians. >> we see a lot of futuristic stuff with old fashioned 19th century technology. >> exactly. steam powered, human powered. it's a wonderful way of making modern technology look something other than sterile and blank, like most ipods are. >> really the costumes, that's a big part of it. what you wear and how you live it. costume culture is a lot of fun. >> yes, once again the style of modern costuming and that thing that you are wearing around your neck was made obsolete by
the top button. we find goggles much handier than ties. we feel that new style instead of just going with whatever t- shirt label you want to have on the front of you. >> this is what you will be judging today. these are the vehicles we are talking about. if we can talk a little bit about what that really means and what it really means about this rally. as a judge what are you going to be looking for? >> we are mainly working for grace under fire. we are going to be shooting stuffed animals at some of the contestants as they go by. they're going to be given tests by the queen of hearts in our wonder land section. they're going to be attacked by zombies. it is really how well they handle that. if it's a disaster and they still handle it well, that's higher points. it doesn't mean -- a failure doesn't mean a failure. you can win and be in a disaster. >> you can lose and still win.
>> exactly. >> these are all human powered vehicles. >> yes. >> sometimes there are ugly wipe outs. it sounds like that happened with you. you were a competitor and now a judge. >> two years ago, i found a civil war vintage invalid's chair entirely run by hand crank. >> how did that work out? >> well i restored it. it was a great deal of work. i steam punked it up and got out and discovered railroad tracks. with each hand working a separate wheel, i managed to completely blow out my shoulder. the chair made it fine. i didn't. i basically couldn't lift anything with my right hand above my chest for six months. >> wow! real competition and real injury. >> it was ugly. >> the rally is underway at 3:00. we are at mayor island. the road rally is at 3:00. the event opens at 1:00.
it is open to the public. folks can come out. this is a rally with kevin o'hare, one of the judges. he has gracefully said that he will judge a brief competition coming up in a half hour. i will be behind the wheel of one of these against one of the organizers of the event and an experienced steam punker. i don't really like my chances but i am going to give it a whirl. it's going to be a good time. >> i am hoping you either go in the mushroom behind you or the horse contraption we saw earlier. those are my votes, where i want to see you. >> i am not going to say which one i will ride in but i will say that the horse contraption will be making an appearance in about a half hour. >> don't fall off. thanks. the hit fox show empire will be returning for season two and fans are getting a chance to be part of the drama. empire follows the ups and downs of the family behind a hip hop recording label. the smash hit has been renewed
for a second season which debuts september 23. producers of the show are offering fans a chance to appear on the show in the upcoming season. a bus with a recording studio inside will travel to 15 cities across the country and allow fans to enter a contest to appear on season two. one lucky winner will be featured as a new empire artist. the bus will be at the shoreline amphitheater in mountain view later today and then pier 41 in san francisco. a legend of the deep. the serf for the lockness monster. a man who has been looking for the sea creature for quarter century has come up with a conclusion. >> donald trump is facing controversy again, this time over a picture tweeted out which appeared to have nazi soldiers standing in front of the american flag. we'll tell you who is taking the blame. >> the last day of a fund raiser to benefit canine
welcome back everybody. registration is happening now in golden gate park for aids walk san francisco. 20,000 people are expected to take part today. since 1987 this event raised $84 million for local hiv programs. last year walkers collected $2.2 million in donations. since the beginning of the epidemic, nearly 30,000 san francisco residents have been diagnosed with aids. that's 18% of aids cases here in california. numbers are why organizers of the aids walk say the event is as needed now as ever. we go live to golden gate park where we are joined by east bay congresswoman barbara lee. good morning. >> good morning. >> if you take a look at every major piece of legislation when it comes to hiv and aids, it's very likely you will find your name as author or co-author. tell me about your passion for the issues and when it comes to
discrimination, prevention, treatment, why you are so involved in this. >> well i have no option quite frankly. let me just say it is so important that we recognize those who are participating in today's event. i tell you, we can see an aids regeneration by 2030. united nations published a report recently that said that we need to increase our resources that we can move forward and understand that we can in our lifetime see an aids free generation. this is a passion i have had for many years. i just have to say to you that we have to do this first of all in memory and honor of those who we have lost to the epidemic and secondly we want to be sure that we provide those resources that maybe government is not providing unfortunately due to the huge budget cuts. the aids walk today and each year has raised millions of dollars to help those with care, prevention, treatment. i believe that today is really
a turning point, 29 years. we are going to move forward and see this aids regeneration. so i join with everyone today to make sure we accomplish our goals. >> i know we had some numbers up earlier talking about the new cases and how many young people are actually contracting hiv these days. i think when you talk to the general public they feel we have made so much progress. why do you think there is this regeneration? is it lack of awareness? is it funding? you mentioned a couple of those. is it people not realizing how much of a problem it still is? >> often times i hear people think it is over because we haven't had the focus that we need to have in the last few years. but as you said young people, we are seeing new infection among young people. one of the issues that's important to recognize is we need comprehensive sex education for our young people in schools. i have legislation trying to work on this for years and years and years. but we have a tea party
controlled congress who insists that federal resources in many states be put into abstinence only programs. our young people need to be taught to protect themselves, taught how protect themselves from sexually transmitted infections, hiv, aids. we need more awareness and comprehensive sex education in our schools. >> congressman barbara lee, it helps when the discussion is in dc and also in the bay area. thanks so much for joining us. we appreciate your time. >> my pleasure. >> we want to give people a run down of today's events. registration for the walk began about 20 minutes ago. there is going to be an opening ceremony at 9:45. the actual walk starts at 10:30. there is also a concert that begins at 12:30. the walk starts and ends in the sharon meadow area of golden gate park. republican presidential candidate donald trump is being criticized by democrats and republicans for statements he
made about senator john mccain's military service. >> war hero. he is a war hero because he was captured. i like people that weren't captured, i hate to tell you. >> trump made the comments yesterday during a forum in iowa. mccain spent more than five years as a prisoner of war in vietnam. many trump competitors are speaking out against his comments. republican national committee responded to trump's comments calling mccain a war hero and saying there is no place for disparaging comments against those who have served the nation honorably. he caused controversy on twitter. his spokesperson blames an intern of tweeting a picture of what appeared to be men in nazi uniforms beneath the american flag. the tweet was removed. a spokesperson released a statement saying a young intern created and posted the image and did not see the faded
figures within the flag of the stock photo. hillary clinton was back on home ground this weekend campaigning in little rock, arkansas. yesterday during a stop, short sleeves he spoke about chattanooga shooting which killed a marine from arkansas. >> this terrible incident breaks our hearts, but it also stiffens our resolve. we will not be intimidated by terrorists. we will be strong. [ applause ] we will be smart. and we will defend our country and our values. >> during our speech clinton focused on the eek on than me blaming top down republican policies for economic down turns in the early 2000s. 9:20. if you are heading out the door on this beautiful sunday, rosemary's got your weather forecast. it will be muggy and a little bit of sprinkles, i guess. >> interesting out there. it already does. it feels like florida or maybe
hawaii. we are giving you a live look across the oakland estuary, san francisco in the backdrop. there is a lot of cloud cover, a little low cloud cover but more so what we have outside our doors this morning, influx of moisture from the south. we have been talking about this for a couple days. we've got the remnants of tropical storm dolores moving in and it will continue over the in ex day or two. we will have on and off possibility of showers in the forecast. we have had some over the north bay, had in and around the coastline. east bay is reporting a little bit. at this time morgan hill as well as gillroy along 101, you may have a few sprinkles here. really it is south in areas like monterrey, southern monterrey. it is really active out there this morning and overnight, quite the lightning show. the national weather service issued an advisory for campers because there was quite a bit of lightning. look at what's going on off the central and southern california

over the next 24 to 48 hours. in the meanwhile, if you don't get any bit of the wet weather, expect warmer weather and muggy weather with partly cloudy skies. 86 in san raphael, 92 danville, 93 livermore. these numbers are five to ten degrees warmer than yesterday, 88 san jose, 88 redwood city, 76 san francisco, upper 60s to low 70s for parts of the coast. it is relatively mild and sticky out there already. the extended forecast is showing you temperatures will come down slightly monday and more so into mid week wednesday when we begin to see the air dry out. for today, tomorrow, tuesday morning unsettled weather will be in the forecast. >> thank you. the family of a woman who died in a texas jail cell continue to demand answers about her death. we will tell you why the family is challenging the autopsy

minds around the sandy that we knew for this to be characteristic of her. >> the state trooper who pulled bland over is on administrative leave for violating procedures. however officials have not explained the violations further. companies can sue uber over claims of having a better safety record. a federal judge in san francisco sided with the cab companies after uber tried to block the lawsuit. it accuses uber of false advertising because it says it conducts the most thorough background check of drivers and it says its services are "the safest." taxi companies say theirs are more complete and include written exam and driving skills test. a warning about recent mountain lion sightings. the first two were in a wooded area near a home on mahogany

>> are you actually sweating now and you were a passenger? oh boy. >> that hat -- don't get close on the sweat here. that's just rude. i had the hat and the goggles on. it gets hot in there. that's a lot of stress being the brains of the outfit. i am not saying i was doing the muscle work. but it's stress with the brain work. victor was great. obviously victor was the brains behind everything. i sat and rode. do i feel bad? not at all. >> obviously. thank you so much. he is always so much fun. it is a nice day to watch the contraptions race. i imagine it is probably one of the more fun races you can watch today. >> it will be more stickier than we typically get. i am saul smiles because -- all smiles because through the door a couple moments ago, national
ice cream day, they're in the house. this is over the oakland estuary and into san francisco. we are waking up with a mix of sun and clouds and even with a few scattered showers. take a look at storm tracker 2, widespread with clouds. they're thin in some areas, a beautiful sunrise earlier this morning. i have reports of danville reporting thunder and lightning overnight, a few sprinkles in walnut creek, a few in sonoma. now i am receiving a tweet in areas in morgan hill. willie says a few light showers in and around morgan hill along 101. you may find some here as we shift into portions of the bay area and look at your numbers. it is a lot warmer. 77 fairfield, 72 concord, 68 mountain view. look at half moon bay. 73 degrees. we have 60s and low 70s over portions of the north bay. we are warmer this morning. it's going to feel muggy with isolated showers today. we'll look at the futurecast

chief says the best reaction depends on knowing your vendings. if you have passed the danger zone you need to keep moving for the sake of the people behind you. if you haven't reached it, you should not drive towards it. for people near it, do whatever it takes to get to safety. >> if you find yourself in an area where there is vegetation dry below you and vegetation dry above you, you are in an area where you wouldn't want to be caught by fire. judging from what i have seen and read in southern california they did the right thing because they got away from the vehicles which were starting to catch fire. >> as they say vehicles can be replaced. he says people need to remember flames can travel quick especially on windy days and he says be aware of the road conditions around you. that's always a smart move. ktvu viewers getting look at a video showing a mural in san francisco's district as it is intentionally set on fire. the footage shows a man about six feet tall with a thin build dressed in a hoodie burning the
