with any south, southeast breeze. it's going to be very mild if we get sun breaks. that adds to the cloud cover developing. but everything is lifting in towards us. a steady rain for some. 60s on temps. 6:02. i don't know where to begin 880, sal? that right and we have a big problem because of the a crash on 880 on davis street. at one point all lanes were blocked southbound at davis street. some lanes are getting through. northbound is affected. i want to show outbackup in oakland heading south -- you the backup in oakland heading south. traffic is going to be busy as you drive south out of downtown oakland. so if you are trying to get to the airport, really in both directions, i recommend if you know your way around, not to use 880 south. perhaps you want other ways to get to the airport. or you want to think of using
6:03 am
problems transportation. looking at the bay bridge slow traffic here from early in the morning and backed up to the maze. i want to mention the other parts of the east bay where we have slow traffic. southbound 680 traffic is slow through police annon. 580 doesn't look too bad over the dublin grade and i forgot to mention the first time, if you are using 580 eastbound through oakland, that's a very good alternate to 8 80 which has problem. slow traffic on highway 24 this morning. steve said it had been raining. you can see traffic is slow from orinda to the tunnel. so it has been a tough commute because of the wet weather. 6:03 now back to the desk. >> thank you. we are following developing news out of austin, texas as well this morning where suspected serial bomber is dead. >> during the night, the man believed to be responsible for a string of bomb attacks blew himself up as the police moved. >> alex savidge has the dramatic end to the manhunt. >> reporter: good morning to you.
6:04 am
the bombings have left the city of austin on edge for weeks. but this morning, authorities are confident the man who died in that overnight blast was behind the string of attacks. investigators began to zero in on suspected deerial bomber's few days -- serial bomber a few days ago. overnight they spotted his suv at a hotel in round rock. just outside of austin. but as the s.w.a.t. team surrounded that suv and tried to move in to make an arrest, authorities say the man inside detonated an explosive device killing himself. there was one s.w.a.t. officer who was injured by that blast. minor injuries we were told. this brought an end to the manhunt but investigators say they are trying to figure out why he did what he did. >> that's the one thing we don't have right now. it's a motive behind this. we do not understand what motivated him to do what he did. and that will also be part of
6:05 am
the continuing investigation as we try to learn more about him and to understand why he took the actions he did. >> reporter: authorities are not identifying the man who blew himself up overnight only saying he was a 24-year-old white man. investigators are trying to figure out if he had accomplices. these attacks first began back on march 2nd with package bombs being left on people's doorsteps or sent through the mail. two people were killed in those blasts and 4 others were injured. and while there is some sense of relief in the community of austin, the police chief still says that people cannot let their guard down. there is a lot of concern. the suspected serial bomber could have planted other explosive devices before he died. so authorities warning everyone in and around austin this morning to stay vinal lent. >> all right alex savidge we will check back later. thank you. time is 6:05. sal and steve have been telling us the rain is causing all

want you to be surprised. two vehicles were on fire and there were injuries and the traffic is going to be very slow southbound. a little slow northbound northbound i think you could probably wade through but southbound i wouldn't recommend it's backed up on southbound 880 almost to downtown oakland not quite. you can see for yourself. things are getting a little bit better now they are clearing the crash. but i would recommend using eastbound 580 as an alternative route. westbound bay bridge that's backed up. wet weather obviously is going to make for a slower commute around the maccart your maze. see the brakes lights in the oakland emeryville area. slow traffic around east bay. you don't see slow traffic in hayward to union city. that's because a lot of people are stuck a little farther north on the peninsula, it looks decent from san mateo up to south city and into san francisco. and this is a look at 280 in san jose. south bay commute is just ramping up. 6:32 let's go back to the desk.

6:35 am
-- karch the crash has been cleared and towed away but the impact may be felt and southbound 880 through san leandro davis street through oakland as sal mentioned for a while. so just a reminder to take it easy on the roads this morning. slick conditions and that's what caused apparently this spinout crash earlier this morning. bang to you guys. >> that's -- back to you guys. >> that's too bad. thanks allie. also, other big story this morning, from texas law enforcement officials identified the austin bombing suspect as 24-year-old mark anthony condit. he killed himself overnight as investigators were closing in. authorities say that condit set off a bomb inside the car as the s.w.a.t. team was approaching. investigators zeroed in on him and located his car at a hotel in the austin suburb of round rock texas. that's what you are looking at this morning. police say that as he began to
6:36 am
drive off, the s.w.a.t. team closed in and condit detonated a bomb inside his car killing himself. authorities say even they they believe he is behind all the bombings, they still want people to be on alert. >> we don't know where the suspect spent the last 24 hours and we still need to remain vigilant to ensure that no other packages or devices have been left through the community. >> austin texas has been targeted by 4 package bombings since march 2nd that killed two people and injured 4 others. a 5th package bomb exploded at a fed ex distribution center near san antonio yesterday. authorities say they did identify condit as the -- in the past 24 hours based on information from the fed ex store in austin where the package was shipped. our time 6:36. the airports hope disasters
