good morning and thank you for joining us. tuesday, september 4th and i'm pam cook. >> good morning. i'm dave clark. let's talk about the weather with steve paulson. looks similar to monday night, 60s on the temps, low clouds and not much change from what we've had including just about everybody. 60s, 70s and 80s foremost unless you are well away from fog influence. temperatures below average and over the sierra, we will keep an eye on things. we are in between high pressure and low pressure. low pressure in the four corners and high pressure to the west. hurricane norman will not impact the hawaiian islands and you don't have to worry about that. 50s on the temps, a west wind gusting almost 230. 60s, 70s and 80s. and allie rasmus is talking about the traffic. pretty good except for the south bay.
starting with the maps, if you are driving up 101 northbound, you will hit a problem in the morgan hill area. we are trying to get more information about what is going on. be aware of that traffic in morgan hills. northbound 101, there is a report of a collision with both vehicles causing a backup and the san jose area. 280 in san jose looks good. the san mateo bridge, busier with brake lights and you can see the bay bridge toll plaza is congested. the carpool lanes have no problem onto the span. happening right now, democrats on the senate judiciary committee held a news conference ahead of the
confirmation hearing on supreme court nominee brett kavanaugh. both california senators, dianne feinstein and kemal harris are on that committee and moments ago, we watched as senator feinstein said the democrats will hold a silent protest to show opposition to the process and she said republicans are using this to jam the nominee through, and we will monitor these events. >> reporter: both california senators are on the judiciary committee with a prominent role to play. judge brett kavanaugh is expected to make opening statements in washington, d.c. was senators on the committee expected to make statements, as well. with that, there will be questions for judge kavanaugh. a vote on the nominee as possible later this month. republicans hold a 50-49 majority leader in the senate and need every republican senator to hold the line to get
the nominee through and the focus is on two women gop senators, susan collins of maine and lisa murkowski of alaska as the positions on abortion for judge kavanaugh are expected to be scrutinized. he had believed it was settled law but hadn't said publicly if he believes it was correctly settled. democrats, as you said earlier, said they are participating in the process under protest after the president said the white house would be withholding more than 100,000 pages of judge kavanaugh's record. >> the trump white house is withholding thousands of pages of brett kavanaugh's record from congress and admits it is doing so without actually asserting a legal privilege. rather, taking advantage of the unprecedented process used by republicans to rush this nomination through the senate with just a fraction of the nominee records.
>> reporter: other major issues likely to be raised our executive power and in particular, if a sitting president should be shielded from prosecution. it the affordable care act, and campaign finance reform and esare expected to play prominent roles. a lot of senators are under intense pressure to do what they can to block from supreme court appointments for democrats. merrick garland was denied a hearing by the republican-led senate and those hearings, as we said, can be expected to get under way at 9:30, less than one half hour and we will monitor those proceedings and bring you the latest from lawmakers and the nominee, himself, as the morning progresses. >> thank you, christien kafton. we will check in with you. if you'd like to watch the brett kavanaugh confirmation
hearing in its entirety, we will stream it live on our facebook page. facebooked.com/katv you. officials from three of the biggest social media companies will go to capitol hill tomorrow to testify at a hearing on interference in the midterm elections. the senate intelligence committee will hear from twitter ceo, jack dorsey and facebook executive, sheryll . page, the head of google's parent company, alphabet, may also testify. google was criticized when it declined to send the ceo, sundar pichai. president donald trump is accusing the companies of discriminating against republican and conservative views. democrats are concerned about privacy and meddling in the november election by foreign companies. >> is google protecting privacy of the average american? what are they doing with vast reams of data they get on us day in and day out. i don't think they should race to regulate based on the president's experience.
>> this will be the second time the committee calls on these silicon valley giants to testify and the first time the executives took part together. google issued this response last week. we look forward to sharing with the senate intelligence committee the work we are doing to prevent bad actors from abusing our service. the u.s. is among five countries calling on silicon valley to create a back door to the user's encrypted information. several tech industry news sites report the u.s., united kingdom, canada, australia and new zealand met last night and drafted a letter urging companies to build the way to encrypted messaging systems. these countries are nicknamed five letter i and return to this with tech companies voluntarily creating a back door to allow them to see encrypted color message status. they refused to enact legislation forcing them to help.
one person is in jail after a high-speed chase in the east bay. the police tried to pull over a ford focus about 11:00 last night for speeding on the car did not stop and instead, sped away with speeds up to 115 miles-an-hour. the chase went north on interstate 80, across the cartagena's bridge and through vallejo and ended north of fairfield after the car got off at cherry glen road and the driver and the passenger ran away. the driver was arrested. today, we hope to find out the names of the two involved in that chase. we are learning more about a woman who died after jumping out of a moving ambulance in dublin. police said the woman fought with officers yesterday when they tried to arrest her for driving into several cars and hitting a pedestrian. as they took her into custody, she reached for the gun of an
officer and they tased her. later, as they were taking her to the psychiatric hospital by ambulance, she began to struggle with the attendance. she broke free of her restraints at a stop sign and broke through the ambulance on to the connector westbound 580 and was hit and killed by two cars. >> it's not normal for somebody to break out of an ambulance while it is moving. we have to figure out how that unfolded. >> the drivers of the two cars that hit the woman stopped and were interviewed by chp and the connector ramp was closed for about three hours while the highway patrol investigated. later today, chp will release a final holiday traffic enforcement number. the labor day maximum enforcement period officially ended at midnight. police focused on drivers that were high on drugs or alcohol, as well as distracted drivers
focused on cell phones, not the road. the labor day enforcement period officially ended at midnight and they were watching for drivers who should have been pulled off the road, particularly those distracted and watching their phones. >> people looking on their phones or using their phones, or people not being courteous to each other like not letting somebody merge when they need to merge. >> we are waiting for the totals with the chp and they said between last friday and monday morning, 969 arrests were made. that is 10 more than the same time last year and so far, 17 people died in weekend crashes including one motorcyclist and two pedestrians. a man from sunnyvale drowned in the reservoir near stockton yesterday at the woodward reservoir and investigators said the 26-year- old was swimming with his

ready to go out in the case of the emergencare here to help. >> forecasters say in the case of gordon, timing is critical. they hope the hardest rain comes before or after high tide so there is not as much storm surge with the possibility of flooding. 6:18 and we will go to steve. you've been tracking this? i have, indeed. yesterday, 45 miles per hour at the upper keys in miami and then south florida into the gulf. the water is very warm and there's not much upper level shear, stronger wind to tear it apart. it's very light and has intensified. it's 65 miles per hour and west- northwest at 15 moving fast. late tonight into wednesday, it will make landfall around mississippi, that is the track and some of the effects are already being felt in florida,
