9:00 am
item was 2003 when lemonade was added. the new hot chocolate is available year-round. today, continuing coverage of this morning's magnitude 4.4 earthquake that people all over the bay area felt. we are talking about new technology and lifesaving safety features live from the silicon valley auto show. a new type of singing competition. paul chambers previews the new store before the battle for stardom. it seems like we had a little of everything this thursday morning. the stock market reaching new heights and the "bomb cyclone" taking care of back east. we got a little bit of rain and fog. don't forget about steph curry last night. welcomed everybody. we had a nice looking
9:01 am
earthquake this morning which woke me up but i was not overly concerned. i knew that it was between four and five mech -- so i went down and checked on everybody we were all good. maybe you guys felt it more. >> i am a little bit closer to the epicenter than you are so we definitely felt it. the kids slept right through it and that is what a lot of people have said. >> everyone but me slept through it. maybe because i am a breaking news guy.>> we felt it for sure. >> my dog was definitely up. i remember in the mountains where it was located last time so i can tell the distance. so if you don't know where the epicenter was, it was in the
9:02 am
berkeley hills near the claremont hotel. allie rasmus is joining us live from berkeley with reaction from people who felt the shake. >> reporter: it has been easy to talk to people about this because everyone who lives in the area felt it. most describe it as a jolt and some people described hearing something loud going along with it. a lot of folks now have cameras in their homes and apartments so one viewer shared with us video from his camera in his apartment in oakland. you can clearly hear the noise. take a listen. that was about it. not visually impressive although there were some things on the shelves shaking a little bit. for people who were startled and woken up in the middle of the night, it was enough to be alarming. we have been talking to people in berkeley all morning who had a range of descriptions and reactions when they talked
9:03 am
about what they experienced.>> the sound was quite intense. i kind of just waited to see what was happening. it seemed to last for a long time. >> at first it was a little offputting but we were not sure if it was a big one. and then it subsided. >> something at 2:30 definitely woke me up. i have been through it my whole life. we are used to it.>> reporter: some people are thinking maybe not a big deal but it is a reminder to everyone to have your earthquake kit ready and have an emergency plan in place. now that the morning has gone on and the initial shock of the earthquake has worn off people are starting to think what should i do to prepare for the big one when it does happen? >> allie rasmus, thank you. this was the scene at sfo after the earthquake.
9:04 am
the air train service was shut down for a while. the trains were stopped inside of the terminal as crews inspected the tracks to make sure there was no damage. the runways were checked and an airport manager tells us there were no problems. >> the usgs is joining us live we have the deputy director of the earthquake science center. >> good morning. >> so, let me ask you about the hayward fault. i feel like this section where the epicenter was this morning has been in the news for the last decade whenever there is a larger earthquake but not necessary the rest of the fault in san jose. why is this happening in that location?>> well, the hayward fault creeps and that means between earthquakes the plates are slowly moving past each other. i think of this as a stuck patch which means the rest of
9:05 am
the fault is creeping not really producing the earthquake through time and then every so often three or four times in the last 10 years this one little patch ruptures and that is the earthquake. it will then produce the magnitude four events. >> one of the things that i wonder is, earthquakes like this do not relieve pressure right? we are just as likely to have a big earthquake but this is not relieving any pressure along the fault?>> right, in fact we might be more likely to have a bigger earthquake now. it would take thousands of earthquakes of this size to reduce all of the strain that has accumulated to the decades. the small earthquakes really do not play a big role in the bigger earthquake budget. the reason i say the larger earthquake is more likely is because statistically every time we have one in california
9:06 am
there is a low probability of a larger earthquake following. maybe a 5% possibility of a larger earthquake in the next several days following this one.>> other countries such as japan have sophisticated earthquake warning systems but we do not. is it not feasible because of our location? what is preventing that from happening?>> well, it is not true that we don't. we are working on this with systems in development. we are working with the geological survey, the universities in california as well and the pacific northwest. we called the system shake alert. so there are people who have the system working on the computers right now. we are not ready to issue public alerts but there are a few of us who are getting signals. in fact last night the earthquake did send an early
9:07 am
warning about four mexicans from the start of the earthquake. we are working on a system and we hope to begin working with partners to send out early alerts by the end of the year. >> that is interesting when we look at august 24, for the napa earthquake which was 6.0 in an isolated region and we had the 4.4 on the hayward fault. if we have the 6.0 on the hayward fault would you expect the same amount of damage or more? >> the damage really depends on the infrastructure that the shaking impacts. so the east bay is part of the older part of the san francisco bay area. there are a lot of older buildings and other structures with pipelines and bridges. so what is the older structures that are more vulnerable. the magnitude 6.0 or even the
9:08 am
7.0 might be possible. an earthquake like that will be causing a lot of destruction and interfere with people's lives. there will be impacts that we feel four months after. i live in albany and we talk about this. we do what we can to be prepared. >> we have a question of the day paul in a minute but the vast majority of people say that they will do nothing after the earthquake. what do you say to those people who say i don't have an earthquake kit and i am not getting insurance. what is your argument? >> hopefully this event will make people realize we do live in earthquake country. this is a regular occurrence. it indicates there will be bigger earthquakes in the future. i tell the young people in the schools if they live in the bay area it is extremely likely they will experience a big earthquake. so, you need to set up communication plans with your family which does not cost
9:09 am
money. you can prepare to be on your own, have those kits so that in the hours and days following an earthquake when police and firemen are tending to other people, you can survive and be self-sufficient. lastly i encourage people to think about the buildings that they occupy. their homes, offices and schools. are the structure save? if they cannot answer the question then talk to an expert. >> whenever we have an earthquake keith picks up the phone so we appreciate your time. thank you. >> you are welcome, bye-bye. question of the day, what action are you taking after this morning's earthquake? let's take a look at the poll results. 24% say that you are preparing a kit. 2% are considering insurance or retrofitting and 74% are doing nothing. amanda tweets i already have a kit with earthquake insurance.
9:10 am
damage limited to the extension of existing wall cracks. >> one viewer says i have voted nothing because i have prepared in his gear. we have everything we need in the garage. >> another viewer says we have a magnitude 4.5 and that is what we sleep there. asked this question when there's another big earthquake. >> we are super prepared. i have my speakers under the bed because the biggest cause of injury is when people walk on broken glass afterward. i have a theory people who did not grow up in the bay, people from outside the area are more concerned about earthquakes but i think we are like when it happens it will happen.
9:11 am
i think we are not that concerned. thank you for responding. we will keep taking responses through the morning. are hashtag of course ktvu. extreme weather hitting the east coast. coming up with local live to delaware for more on the ice, the snow and the below freezing temperatures. a deadly shooting just outside of a oakland bart station. we will tell you what led to the shooting.

reports of injury connected to the shooting. we are learning more about a deadly shooting by a bart police officer from late yesterday in oakland. >> alex savidge is live near the west oakland bart station with the latest on the investigation and what oakland police have said. we got an update from oakland police, the lead agency investigating the shooting. this all began when two men were involved in a dispute and struggle on the street corner. one of them pulled out a gun and started shooting. a bart police officer on duty at the west oakland bart station heard the gunfire and ran across the street. according to investigators he ordered the man with the gun to drop the weapon. >> it looks like we are having technical difficulties and we lost the shot. we will try to reestablish that and bring him back. a new report in the chronicle

more now on the case of the officer involved shooting in oakland evolving a bart police officer. we have reestablished the signal with alex savidge.>> reporter: as i was saying, good morning. this started with a struggle and argument of some kind between two men on the street corner. one of the men pulled out a gun and started shooting. that is when a police officer on duty across the street at the west oakland station heard the gunfire, ran across the street and according to police in charge of the investigation, the police officer ordered the man with the gun to drop his weapon. when he did not the officer opened fire. the man was shot and later died at the hospital. the shooting happened just
9:21 am
after 4:30 yesterday afternoon outside of uppercuts barbershop on seventh street at chester. the unarmed man who was involved in the initial scuffle was hit by gunfire and wounded. he was later released from the hospital according to authorities. it is unclear if the second man who was shot and wounded was hit by the bart police officer or by the man he was fighting with initially. we talked with a woman who witnessed the shooting. >> basically it was an argument between two guys and it turned into a shooting. one of them shot my friend in the leg and the police shot and killed him. >> reporter: again, the oakland police department is in charge of the investigation because the shooting happened on city streets. the bart police are conducting their own investigation as well
9:22 am
as is the alameda county district attorney. authorities have not released the names of either of the men over shot or the name of the police officer who opened fire. we did learn this morning that the officer was wearing a body camera and activated the camera as he responded to the scene of the shooting ultimately opening fire on the man who was armed. >> thank you for the updated information, alex savidge. the white house cracking down on staff and guests using personal cell phones at work. sarah huckabee sanders issued a statement that reads starting next week the use of personal devices will no longer be allowed in the west wing. the decision is about security not weeks. the ban will not apply to the media. the white house also says staffers will need to use their government issued devices. president trump is going after steve bannon and bannon

9:24 am
the president's reaction as furious and disgusted. >> i would certainly think going after the president's son in this outrageous way is probably not the best way to gain favor. >> the book contains other details including allegations that as a candidate trump did not want to be president and never thought he could actually win back. the book alleges trump was stunned when he won. he looked like he had seen a ghost. the first lady's office responded with a statement that says the book is clearly going to be sold in the bargain fiction section. mrs. trump supported his decision to run and in fact encouraged him to do so. she was confident he would win and was very happy. the president blasted steve bannon for the loss of a republican senate seat in alabama to the democrats and says that bannon was only in it
9:25 am
for himself. the president said bannon did not want to make america great again but was simply seeking to burn it all down. >> one other piece of information is that steve bannon's statement that the russia investigation was centered on money laundering and investigators would crack donald trump jr. like an egg on national tv. attorney angela alioto who once served as supervisor of san francisco with officially file paperwork to run for mayor of san francisco. she is one of several people interested in running in the election set for june. the term for ed lee will end in january 2020. the deadline to file the paperwork to run is tuesday. the city attorney dennis herrera may enter the race. he has requested the paperwork as of yesterday. he is a veteran of city politics. peninsula congresswoman jackie speier does not plan to

9:29 am
we are continuing coverage of the 4.4 magnitude earthquake that hit the bay area earlier this morning. the epicenter in the berkeley hills near the claremont hotel. the earthquake hit at 2:39 this morning. this morning the earthquake took place on the hayward fault and earlier this morning a geologist with the usgs talked about the potential of a bigger earthquake. >> 5% of the time earthquakes are followed by larger earthquakes. there is a low probability but there is some probability this is a forthshock to a bigger event. honestly it would not be a big surprise if we had a big one. the last big earthquake was 1868 and we are about at the 150 year anniversary. so we know from geological excavation the big earthquakes
9:30 am
happen every 150 years. so people like me think that a large earthquake is probably the most likely earthquake to occur in the near future.>> so far more than six hours later there have been no reports of significant damage from the earthquake. >> we have been asking you what action are you taking after the earthquake? 23% say that you are preparing your earthquake weight -- kit 2% are retrofitting your home or calling for insurance and most of you, 75% are doing nothing. some people are getting their food supply and the cash.>> carlos says we are not taking it seriously. i am having a bloodied mary to celebrate it was not the big one. >> a lot of people have said i am ready. >> i'm sure napa helps with

that. >> thank you for using our hashtag and talking with us. moving to the extreme weather in the east coast. andrew cuomo the governor of new york has declared a state of emergency for new york city, westchester and long island because of the current conditions. >> single digits and subzero temperatures are creating a dangerous mix meeting days of recovery and people are being advised to stay off the roads. caroline shively is live from delaware in the thick of it. it looks like the snow is persisting but has the wind died down? >> reporter: within the last few moments it has but then you get a massive gust and it will practically knock you off of your feet. it is hard to know if it is just a one or two minute break. >> i like to your tweet of your little outfit but i wanted to ask, in cities like savannah, georgia where they don't get
9:32 am
snow and they don't have snow plows or the equipment, that is where this is most likely to have a big effect, correct? >> reporter: absolutely. because a lot of those places got freezing rain it is dragging down the power lines. in parts of minneapolis everybody has a snowplow you put it on your truck and you are fine. these cities that are not prepared. talking to the bartender last night, here come the wind. the bartender joked we only have one snowplow because as far north in delaware they don't get a lot of snow. when you add in the mix of the "bomb cyclone" with the awful wind that is what is tough.>> it looks like a virtual ghost town behind you, kind of like a movie set. are all of the schools closed where you are? what about the businesses
9:33 am
behind you?>> reporter: businesses are closed and the schools are closed. city hall is closed and state offices are closed. random people are walking through at the strangest times. we saw an old man who walked over one mile in this for exercise. 20 minutes ago we saw a man with a baby and a carrier on his back. he was too far away for us to talk to him but random people are walking in. near the bigger highway there are semi trucks and jeeps trying to get through. the fire chief said some tractor-trailers are stuck. >> it is great that people are hunkering down today but there is danger continuing after the storm passes through correct? >> reporter: yes, absolutely. if you look around you can see the icicles melting. we will be running into that sort of thing. the terrible temperatures will get down to four below today.
9:34 am
the snow should be stopping tomorrow and maybe the wind will die down but the temperature will be terrible. if we have power outages as we have seen to the south but they have been getting online quickly. if we see more power outages that is when we get into the danger zone. >> caroline shively live from a very chilly delaware, thank you. >> she says she needs a bigger better outfit. we have light rain in our area. >> steve paulson can talk about the local weather. >> i can but i want to show you new york. we have a couple of reports in delaware of 16 inches of snow. not only the wind and the snow but the brutally cold temperatures behind this. we will be getting this fluffy
9:35 am
snow getting it turned into ice. from philadelphia into new york the lowest pressure was montauk in long island. 29.01. if you have a barometer at home you likely did a double take. there is the system with that warm atlantic current. atlantic water which was in the 70s but now coming in behind that will be some really cold air. the development of the system is coming through with extremely cold air down into the gulf which will interact with the gulf water. there will be really cold temperatures behind that with the windchill at 25 to 30 below into parts of the new england area. we did have some rain so santa cruz picked up the most. foster city, san carlos, san mateo all getting really good rain and the east bay as well with the oakland hills.
