some hotter weather and mike, you're also checking out the golden gate bridge. >> we'll go back to the same shot, kari. you talk about mostly clear view for the drivers. i do want to point out, i always watch if you can see the lights over here, the towers, you can't, that means low clouds. everything is okay but crews moving alongside the shoulder, you see the glow from the headlights. fog may be a factor for some drivers but not now. a mild backup at the oakland side of the bay bridge. this is friday, so we have a lighter later build expected at the toll plaza. a crash west of highway 4 past 242 should be off to the shoulder, not a problem for contra costa county and a clear drive throughout the silicon valley and the peninsula. back to you. >> thanks, mike. a live look for you right now at san jose. today immigrant advocates will be on hand there to help people navigate this weekend's planned i.c.e. raids. there are also massive protests planned here in the bay area and across the country. bob redell has much more of this developing story coming up in
the next half hour. meanwhile, after days of hinting he would use an executive action to enter a question about citizenship on the upcoming census, president trump is using a new approach. instead, he's ordering federal agencies to use already existing data to gather that information. "today in the bay's" sarah dallof is in washington on how this new tactic is working. sarah. >> good morning, marcus. the president calling off the fight that saw the census turned into a political weapon. president trump backing off his bid to put a citizenship question on the 2020 census. >> the case is already in three federal district courts that have been, to be totally honest, extremely unfriendly to us. >> reporter: instead issuing an executive order for federal agencies to compile citizenship
records from existing databases. >> knowing this information is vital to formulating sound public policy. we will leave no stone unturned. >> reporter: this as the president prepares for mass deportation raids this weekend, in at least ten major u.s. cities, prompting outrage across the country. several arrested in buffalo. >> abolish i.c.e.! >> reporter: advocates speaking out in chicago. in d.c., republican support. >> beginning to dpeport people who have gone through the process and lost their case to me is not cruel. it's reinforcing the rule of law. >> reporter: democrats furious. >> it means moms, dads, families being torn apart. it is absolutely disgusting. >> it has nothing to do with the security and safety of the united states. >> reporter: new moves from the president prompting new ripples of fear across immigrant
communities. and the raids will target some 2,000 people who have been ordered deported previously, but he could also include immigrants who happen to be stopped on the scene. marcus? >> i've seen a lot of stories dealing with that, a lot of people are frightened about what will happen. thank you, sarah. there could be danger in the water. a shark warning for people headed to the beach, this weekend "today in the bay's" thom jensen is live in half moon bay. we don't like the warnings so close to home, thom. >> reporter: especially, kris, when it's so warm and so many people, you know, going out to the water, whether it be surfing, we're at mavericks surf shop in half moon bay and i talked to fishermen a couple minutes ago going out on a charter boat and they're talking about this shark that was spotted. pilots first saw it on the approach into the airport here at half moon bay, and san carlos pilot hearing that got on his plane, went up and got this picture of it.
bart selby from san carlos a long with a friend on board this plane yesterday afternoon, the san mateo county sheriff's office then issued a warning to people that there was a great white shark spotted in half moon bay, and talking to the locals here, they say that you don't hear about it that much anymore, although you do from time to time see damage on fish or other creatures like elephant seals. they say when they were kids they used to see more great white sharks around half moon bay back in the '80s and '90s and see the elephant seals with their heads bitten off but to hear about something like this and to see these pictures really harkens back to that time, and it's really unusual and it can be a dangerous situation especially for surfers. you can bet they'll be talking about it here at maverick surf shop today. back to you guys. >> we'll talk about it here far from the water's edge, too. thank you very much, thom.
a developing story this morning, the search is on for dangerous weapons stolen from an fbi agent's car in oakland. a semiautomatic rifle, a magazine loaded with bullets, and an fbi jacket all missing this morning. investigators say that theft happened wednesday night at the hagenberger shopping center across the street from the coliseum, near the in and out burger. the fbi is offering a $5,000 reward for the return of those items. and the top cop in san luis obispo is apologizing after leaving her gun in a restaurant restroom, which was then stolen. here is chief deanna cantrell. >> my actions were irresponsible and dangerous, and i'm so grateful that after our preliminary investigation, a child didn't find it. i was complacent and that's something you can never be with a firearm. >> surveillance video captured the possible suspect who took the weapon. here is a picture. the search for this man you see
right here continues. these are not the only times this has happened. our investigative team has reported before on stolen law enforcement weapons, to watch all of those reports, you can head to nbcbayarea.com and search "stolen guns." >> i can understand how that would happen, you're going to the bathroom, right? happening today, governor newsom is expected to sign a massive wildfire protection bill into law that makes rate payers share the burden of future wildfire costs caused by utilities like pg&e. the complex bill was approved yesterday by the legislature. it creates a new $21 billion fund for victims and about half of that money will come from utility customers. lawmakers say your bills will not go up, however but critics say this is a gift to the you tilts. the governor who supports the bill says the utilities will have to meet higher safety standards because they can't access the funds.
the town of paradise ravaged by wildfires struggling months later. the town has lost more than 90% of its population since the wildfire last year, and surveyors are counting about 2,000 residents in april. that's it. back in 2010, there were about 26,000 people living there. 85 people died in the camp fire. about 14,000 homes were destroyed by the fire as well. 5:08. happening today, the judge meets with both sides now duking it out over the future of a home you can't help but notice above. we're talking about the so-called flintstone house. the town is suing the owner florence fang over recent additions to the home. critics call it a visual nuisance. the town says the modifications were done without proper approval. today's meeting lays out how the civil case will proceed. in louisiana, a hurricane warn something now in effect, and it could arrive as early as
tomorrow. >> as we've been reporting to you, tropical storm barry is headed straight for the state's coast with new orleans possibly taking the brunt of the storm. so here's what's happening right now. sandbags are being put out in low-lying areas to try to move some of that flooding around. people are also leaving town. we've been showing you video of flooding from the rain all this week in new orleans, and now the mayor there is sounding the alarm. >> we cannot pump our way out of the water levels and the water falls that are expected to hit the city of new orleans. >> here is the big concern, the mighty mississippi is already at flood stage, and with more rain expected, things could get much worse and so many meteorologists are keeping their eyes on this one. kari, we have friends and family everywhere, right? >> yes, absolutely. i used to live in lafayette so i have a lot of people there who are closely watching this hurricane. right now a tropical storm, and it's a little complicated because there are hurricane warnings in effect along the coast, although we are expecting
this to stay as a tropical storm over the next couplef days. we are not focusing so much on the intensity but the amount of rainfall that this slow-moving tropical system will dump on some areas, including lafayette and over toward the east over new orleans, and of course as we just mentioned the water levels are already very high, so this could cause a lot of problems aside from those high wind speeds going into tonight, as well as throughout the day tomorrow, as it slowly tracks off to the north. as we bring it back home, we take a live look outside in san jose, with the cloudy start. sunnyvale will have some warmer temperatures today, and normally we're at about 82 degrees. i think we're going to go slightly above that, as we go into this afternoon. i'll have more on that and the weekend forecast. mike, you're checking on something in the tri-valley. >> that's right, kari. we got a report and a clear report right now, where the roadways are showing great sensors, you see all the green here. we're going over here toward 680 southbound, right around sheridan, that little blip of
slowing, there was a report of a roadway obstruction. i think it was a disabled vehicle but perhaps some debris. that quickly cleared from the chp report without a lot of detail. we see a little bit of slowing in the incident on the southbound 680, just past 84, but again, we'll track that, but the tri-valley still looking great right now, and a lighter flow of traffic, there's fremont 880. back to you. >> thank you very much, mike. 5:11 for you right now. coming up here on "today in the bay," on fire. a large fire in hawaii being engulfed by those flames this morning. the impact this is having on travelers here at home. and a lot of powerful people are weighing in on libra, the cryptocurrency from facebook. kris, it faces a lot of trouble. talk about happy feet, a different turn. new adorable video as young baby penguins in san francisco take to the water for the very first time. we are bird crazy this week.

cnn. president trump weighed in saying he doesn't like cryptocurrencies. he prefers the dollar and fed chairman powell raising concerns about money laundering. facebook has a long road ahead of it. google responding after a dutch news reporter discovered google contractors are listening to recordings of some of the things you say to your google home assistant. they do that to better program the voice recognition. google says that's actually true. amazon does this, too. ideally they're only listening to the recordings to the wake-up word okay google or alexa. of course they do that. this is how they get the devices to work. the genius project in oakland to teach young black men about programming but not just coding. leading and entrepreneurship too. this week on press:here -- >> we aren't going to lose sleep on the representation on a given

the inland valleys won't feel the winds picking up until later on this evening, but by then, we're already in the upper 80s and low 90s. then we're going to see those 90s continuing through the weekend, up to 92, even hotter in a few spots reaching 90 on sunday as temperatures come down just a bit. we're going to see more widespread 80s going into next week, and san francisco not changing as much, seeing mostly 60s, even through the middle of next week. mike, how is it looking now at the bay bridge? >> speaking of san francisco, heading from oakland got a little change in the configuration. we have the fastrak lanes just starting to show the buildup and the cash lanes all open in the last few minutes. they are just starting to see clearing. this is the plan on friday, 5:20, we should see the metering lights on but the volume of traffic not needing to be metered because it's so smooth and so light there. that crash still reported westbound highway 4 at 242 but we don't see problems and haven't had a problem. it's out of the lanes, the point where the two roadways are
merging. and also we have this disabled vehicle southbound 680, a shout out there, as you go toward sheridan, just always concerned because this is about the time even on a lighter friday we see more traffic heading down 680 in toward fremont out of pleasanton. a smooth drive throughout the entire area, south bay and peninsula as well. that's good news. the crash cleared 101 at san bruno. here is 101 at palo alto as kari showed you the light flow of traffic. it is still the summer. we have the summer flow, lighter traffic around the bay but in about another month this ikea will be crowded with kids and their parents to get ready for the dorm rooms. back to you. >> thanks, mike. coming up, new ideas when it comes to tackling the homelessness crisis down in los angeles. what the city's police chief has when it comes to a bold plan for fighting the epidemic, and what he says he's willing to forgive in order to get people off the streets. show me the crown.
