11:03 am
things, just being visible out here as a deterrent. >> reporter: nashville international airport officer was called into san francisco for a special super bowl assignment along with bingo, his bomb-sniffing dog. the signs are security are everywhere, with metal detectors, x-ray machines and sharpshooters, focused on any threats to the throngs of visitors in the bay area for the super bowl event. the fbi leading 60 agencies working the ground and the air. >> a lot of security checkpoints. is it worth it for you? >> yes, yes. definitely yes. i'd rather feel safe than not safe. >> i lot of security in our neighborhood. >> reporter: the extra eyes are here to watch over the more than one million people expected to show up for super bowl and the week-long events. in fact thursday marked the fifth highest ridership in b.a.r.t. history and wednesday's ridership at the seventh highest. b.a.r.t. is running longer
11:04 am
trains and adding station guards and police officers. other transit systems like muni are doing the same, especially ramping up today. >> so far, no. it's been pretty steady. a lot of the common commuters, things like that, but as the week goes on, there's going to be a lot more of the super bowl fans, so i think today they're expecting it to be a lot heavier. >> back here live. what i can tell you is super bowl city is just now opening at 11:00. i haven't been here at the exact time so i can't tell you crowds are larger but tonight you can definitely expect that. one republic is performing here at the stage. the goal is to get people to take public transit. get a card, round trip ticket and parking near the lots might be impossible today and through the weekend. >> all right, steph, thanks. let's go to bob redell, who's live at mineta san jose international airport. bob, you found one lucky, lucky
11:05 am
bronco fan who got tickets to the big game? >> reporter: actually found a few. good morning to you, kris. at norman mineta international bowing the closest airport to the stadium, we're seeing a lot of orange and blue arriving at terminals a and b. the denver broncos fans of been arriving in on flights within the past hour or so. carolina fans we expect to arrive on later flights as obviously they have farther to travel. but the denver fans, yes, have tickets. some won the season ticket lottery and had to pay the $1200 face value and others had to pay a little bit more. >> how much did you spend? >> 21. >> 21. how much do you think you'll spend on the other trip. >> 30 grand. >> i spent $21,000 on the tickets. >> are you joking right now? >> no, no. >> why? >> for four tickets. it's got the tailgate thing, the
11:06 am
broncos tailgate package. >> what if you guys lose. >> we're not going to. >> what if you do? >> we won't. >> if the broncos lose on summed, are you going to feel bad about putting out $5,000 for this weekend? >> maybe a little bit but it's going to be worth every penny. peyton will go out a winner though, guaranteed, almost. >> it's worth it. once in a lifetime experience almost, so i think it will be fun. >> i've got to go to the super bowl, i've got to follow my team. i went to new york, it was a bust, but we're here to win now, so -- >> reporter: we imagine the people who can afford to drop the most money are those arriving in those private jets you see. sfo expecting about 200 arrivals between yesterday and tomorrow. norm mineta expecting about 200 arrivals and departures today alone. that's about double the amount of traffic for this airport. they also expect by sunday morning to be at full capacity with 180 private jets parked on property.
11:07 am
>> just like valet, first in, first out. we very much know when planes want to leave so they manage that based upon the needs of the pilots and the pilot's clients. this is the most airplanes we've seen come in over a shorter period of time such as this but we've been working very hard to plan for this, working with the faa and the tenants that work here on the airfield and we're ready. >> reporter: normally you'd want to arrive around 90 minutes before your flight but on monday and tuesday, the airport is advising that you arrive three hours before your flight. this is something we witnessed last year when we were trying to get out of phoenix after super bowl xlix, the airport will be crowded. again, not only monday, but they're saying tuesday as well. reporting live here, bob redell, nbc bay area news. >> bob, you think that mr. $21,000's wife has heard by now? >> reporter: i'll be tweeting her shortly.
11:08 am
because i'm that kind of guy. >> i have to say, okay, i've lived here a very long time, i love the niners, but i was born in the mile high city and all my relatives, they are rabid. they would have paid that too. they didn't, though. >> bob, you find some interesting folks. thanks for that. it didn't look this way a couple weeks ago but we can expect chamber of commerce weather for kickoff. >> we're welcoming them in with some beautiful weather and a live look now at the bay bridge as we see all of that sunshine beaming down. temperatures are still cool. it's 52 degrees in san carlos and san francisco. it's 57 in san jose, santa rosa has some work to do, it's 44. if your going out tonight to super bowl city to see one republic, we'll have temperatures at 8:00 at 55 degrees. we'll see those temperatures holding steady and the fireworks going off right at 10:00 and it will be 53 degrees, so make sure you wear some warm clothes. yeah, we said we've had some nice weather and will see that for the kickoff, right at 72
11:09 am
degrees, mostly sunny skies. halftime, performers hitting the stage, it will be 68 degrees. so very nice way to welcome in all of our visitors from all over. as we head into next week, we'll keep this a little while longer. i'll detail that and take a look at the rest of the forecast coming up a little later. getting around the entire bay area will not be as sunny as the weather forecast. >> let's bring in mike inouye. >> all the activity has been focused at super bowl city in san francisco for the last two weeks and there will still be crowds here but let's focus not from super bowl city but to the city with the super bowl, 45 miles to the south. you can drive there but i'll show you the parking situation coming up. another option, take b.a.r.t. down to millbrae and transfer to the caltrain line the caltrain will take you to mountain view.
11:10 am
limited parking around levi's stadium. if you don't have a super bowl ticket, don't go down there. if you haven't prepurchased your access, do it now. uber and taxi are limited to specific parking lots. if you want to get the rails, don't. if you don't have a super bowl ticket and haven't prepurchased and activated that ticket on line, vta can't take you there either. all i have to do is decide where i'm sitting on the couch. back to you. well, a blood center is calling for increased donations to gear up for the super bowl. >> the city provides blood to stanford health care, one of two designated trauma centers for the big game. the blood center wants to make sure it has enough in case it seize an increase in patients. >> nationwide only 37% of people are eligible to donate. of that 37%, only 5% do. however, here in the bay area, only 3% donate. that's why it's critical that we go out not just to our regular donor base but also to the
11:11 am
public. >> they brought the blood sw inventory up to full capacity but they would like more donations in case that runs low as people are in town for super bowl. >> we have you covered all the way through kickoff and beyond. we'll have a special edition of today in the bay starting at 6:00 sunday morning and of continuous live updates throughout the day. up next, big waves causing big problems for a bay area city already in a state of emergency. plus a new healthy option at mcdonald's. it can be deceiving, though. apparently not everything with kale is good for you.

11:13 am
welcome back. happy friday if you're just visiting our fair city. we take our business news very seriously here. markets just getting killed today. linkedin out of mountain view down 40% after it said business
11:14 am
ahead did not look very good. relatively weak jobs number coming to us from the labor department. the economy added 151,000 jobs in the month of january. by the standards to which we have become accustomed that is a surprisingly bad number. unemployment drops to 4.9%, the lowest since the housing crisis. cnbc reports the obama administration will propose a $10 fee on every barrel of oil to fund green engine projects. oil prices have gotten so low washington worries americans are going to move away from solar and green energy cars. the $10 fee would be paid by the oil companies but obviously passed on in gas pricing. i couldn't help but go find this video. oh, poor kid, showing off his new phone to reporters. this was years ago but i bring this up because we're hearing that apple will soon announce it's going to give you a credit
11:15 am
for a broken iphone when buying a new iphone. right now if you bring in an iphone 5, you can get credit toward an iphone 6 but it has to be in good condition. apple will extend that to phones with broken screens. kris, i know you like to eat healthy. thought this sounded good for lunch for you and me. it's the new mcdonald's caesar chicken salad. it uses kale, and that's super healthy, right? but here's the kicker, it has more fat, more salt and more calories than a double big mac. 53 grams of fat because of the fried chicken, 1400 milligrams of salt and 730 calories when you use the dressing. >> and it has kale. >> and that doesn't help you at all. >> i'm sorry, i'm a purist. it's supposed to be romaine. an investigative unit exclusive now. when you drop off your car at the auto repair shop, you don't usually expect to see a show,
11:16 am
but one family got quite a performance. the stars include mechanics going to considerable lengths to deceive their customers. tonight we're introduced to one family that felt like they were taken for a right by their auto repair shop after being told their vehicle was fixed and safe to drive. >> so this is broken glass. >> yes. >> and you've never had your window broken. >> no, never. >> and that's after you took it to the auto body shop? >> correct. >> a state agency that was going to hold the auto repair industry accountable may be failing its customers. if you have a tip call us at 888-996-tips or send an e-mail to theunit@nbcbayarea.com. new problems for pacifica.
11:17 am
another sinkhole measuring 25 by 3 feet appeared on the beach boulevard promenade, second sinkhole this year. city leaders say the foundation under this latest section is actually in better shape than the hole that collapsed last month. the double dose of construction has nearby neighbors concerned about their safety. >> since there's another one occurring, i'm speculating that we're going to have more rough ocean with the sea water elevating. that maybe the sea wall itself is -- it's life is expired. >> of course all this is happening not far from that apartment building where the cliffs are eroding. residents were forced to move out. pacifica declared a state of emergency last month, hoping to get some state money to help deal with that erosion. we don't have a high surf advisory today, but with el nino coming, we expect we're going to see more dangerous surf. >> yeah, we're going to have some high waves as we go at
11:18 am
least this afternoon and into evening and they did allow that high surf advisory to expire but we are still looking at some waves that may get up to 14 feet. this is a time lapse of ocean beach from this morning and we'll have beautiful clear blue skies all day but chilly temperatures and a bit of a breeze. as we take a look at all of our temperatures now, we are in the low 50s and some mid-60s in the forecast. looking at the tri-valley today, up to 64 degrees, 65 in the south bay and peninsula as well as the north bay. and as we take it hour by hour in oakland, we are in the low 60s. very comfortable. a lot of sunshine, but still on the cool side, especially later on tonight. once the sun sets we'll be dropping back into the low 50s so make sure you do have a jacket somewhere close by. all of the weather systems we've seen recently well to the north of us. this is the reason why. it's because of high pressure that's been allowing for a surge of some warm air to roll up from
11:19 am
the south and it's been keeping those weather systems farther to the north. as we go through the rest of the day, only expecting a few passing clouds here and there as the showers do remain well to the north and our temperatures will be warming up. we'll see widespread 60s all across the bay area tomorrow. some 70s farther off to the east and we'll see some widespread 70s just in time for the super bowl. and the first time we've had temperatures this warm in about two months, so we are really feeling a warmup here by the start of next week we could be hitting some 80s in the far south bay so we'll be watching out for that as our temperatures do continue to warm. so the warming trend kicks in today as we will be in the mid-60s, we've been in the 50s all week and some very chilly mornings. 70 degrees for the high on saturday in the south bay as well as the north bay and some more 70s once again heading into sunday. and if you're planning to get away and want to head to tahoe, here's a look at northstar.
11:20 am
this is a live picture. it takes a new snapshot every couple of minutes. the temperatures will be very warm, above freezing throughout the day, but we have a lot of snow on the ground. at the base we have 72 inches of snow at squaw valley and at the summit 125 inches. but it looks like some of that could be melting with these warm temperatures heading into the weekend. we'll stay dry and talk about that and the warmup on the way coming up a little bit later. kris and scott. up next at 11:00, the local high school football team that's getting a chance to play at levi's stadium before the super bowl. but first happening now, students at santa clara university line up for a second straight day of vaccines. they started lining up at 7:00 this morning. go t our website on tips on how to keep yourself safe from meningitis. plus, wonder where the super bowl footballs are made? we've posted a video on facebook. and the niners new home gets

ready for the big game. get our app to watch the time lapse video. (scal): good day, m'lady!

i am sir-can-a-lot, here to save you from another breakfast bore. wake up those eggs with glorious spam! see what spam can! do... at spam.com with toothpaste or plain water.an their dentures and even though their dentures look clean, in reality they're not. if a denture were to be put under a microscope,
11:23 am
we can see all the bacteria that still exists on the denture, and that bacteria multiplies very rapidly. that's why dentists recommend cleaning with polident everyday. polident's unique micro clean formula works in just 3 minutes, killing 99.99% of odor causing bacteria. for a cleaner, fresher, brighter denture every day. = welcome back. a dream opportunity for some bay area student athletes. >> take a look. this is st. francis high school's football team. they're from mountain view. and they're going to play a bonus game at levi's stadium.
11:24 am
they are so big in person, but so much taller than the nfl players. they're going run plays like the super bowl contenders do so the broadcast crews can practice getting video of the real game. >> group of kids together one final time and they get to enjoy all of their hard work and play on a big stage for fun. >> the simulated game will run about four hours. the players will wear tennis shoes, though, instead of cleats to keep the field in pristine condition. >> how fun would that be? i would want the video. make a dvd for the parents. so neither bay area football team pros are playing in the super bowl, but the bay area rich super bowl history will be on display during the coin toss. >> six niners and raiders legends will participate in that coin flip. all won super bowl most valuable player awards. how about three-time mvp joe
11:25 am
montana flipping the coin. joining him will be hall of famer jerry rice and steve young as well. meanwhile representing the raiders, former super bowl mvps, marcus allen, jim plunkett and fred biletnikoff. >> who's going to win the super bowl? jimmy fallon brought out a parade of puppies onto "the tonight show" to make that prediction. >> let's release the puppies. >> go, puppies, go! they had to choose between bowls of food marked panthers and broncos. it appears that the denver broncos was their pick. how accurate are these puppies? they picked the ravens over the niners in super bowl xlvii. last year they picked the kentucky derry winner. they're smarter than they look. up next, we investigate how homeland security will prepare for the game. >> unfortunately in a 9/11 world, it's all about managing the risks to the extent you possibly can.
11:26 am
>> we take you into the secret world of surveillance and security all at work to keep you safe. when we're in a nbc bay area microclimate weather alert, we've made it easy for you to get the very latest information on your smartphone. just click on the bar that says weather alert. that will take you right to what you need to know right when you need to know it. i'm vicky nguyen and that's how to stay informed with the nbc bay area app. security around the super bowl
11:27 am
11:28 am
will be some of the tightest in the world. now -- we take you ehin you probably know by now that security around the super bowl will be some of the tightest in the world, but now we're going to take you behind the scenes. >> not just what the feds are doing, but how they're doing it. how they identify suspicious people or objects. senior investigative reporter stephen stock has our story. >> reporter: guys, multiple law enforcement sources tell me that
11:29 am
threats to the super bowl date back at least to last year's super bowl in glendale, arizona, when at least one person that they know that was on the known terrorist watch list was actually seen by law enforcement getting through the first level of security there. the possibility of that happening again this year here has security on high alert. >> this is actually created by our awareness team. >> reporter: while it might look like a typical office in silicon valley, this is the nerve center of some of the most sophisticated intelligence gathering of terrorist threats by officials in the united states. >> it gives an overview of the threats in our area. >> reporter: it looks similar to this room, the joint operations center. a room nearby set up just for super bowl 50. but before any reports of suspicious activity gets here at the joint operations center, it comes through the intelligence center and a team of five
11:30 am
specially trained experts who sift through a constant stream of reports that arrive 24/7. >> we have to triage activity reporting. >> reporter: triage, as spotting a real threat between the hundreds of calls and tips of suspicious activity. >> we have a criteria we go through to say which one should have the most importance, which should have the least and which one is bogus. >> reporter: director mike cena took us exclusively behind the scenes. >> this was developed in-house by one of our fine staff from a federal agency. >> reporter: to see how this data analysis is already working. >> what we've done is connecting things like automated license recognition systems, records management systems. so that way we're not all islands unto ourselves. >> reporter: we got to meet the agent who developed this latest data analysis system. although he's based in the greater san francisco bay area, we agreed to hide his identity and not reveal the federal agency where he works.
11:31 am
the system that he developed has now been adopted by federal security agencies and intelligence centers around the country. >> our goal is that, yes, we want people to report but we want them to report accurate information. >> reporter: it's like trying to find a needle in a haystack. last year cena and his team received 800 tips about suspicious activity in the bay area alone. while 17% of those were routine criminal activity, 3.2% were elevated enough to check out. only 1% were found to be credible, prompting the fbi to actually take action to stop the threat. >> an fbi squad may or may not have support and would have to run down every one of those leads on their own. >> reporter: other high-tech tools will also be in use, including facial recognition technology, monitoring of internet sites and graduated security zones. >> one of the things we can do better is beer f er foer fo ere
11:32 am
>> it's all about managing the risk to the extent you possibly can so you can never be so confident, so self assured that nothing is going to happen. >> reporter: make no mistake it will be a big challenge. several law enforcement sources tell nbc bay area's investigative unit that at least one person on the terrorist watch list was actually seen inside the perimeter of one security zone at last year's super bowl in the phoenix area. and all eyes will be on the lookout for similar suspects this time around. >> so knowing where our known and suspected terrorists are at is critical to us. >> were they scoping it out when they were in phoenix? >> you never know. it's hard to say how far ahead anning is. back when we were dealing with al qaeda, we would see plans and they're thinking on decade levels. the folks we're seeing now are thinking on minute level. they are ready to roll in a
11:33 am
short period of time. oftentimes the first indicator that somebody is going to do something bad is they tell someone. >> reporter: that's why the feds say if you see something, say something. according to this federal threat assessment report obtained by nbc bay area, terrorists have attempted to get into large events like the super bowl before. for instance, at that soccer stadium just last year in paris. now, because of that, the feds say the most vulnerable targets are the public spaces outside the venues rather than actually inside the venues. that's why law enforcement wants the public to help them. report suspicious activity. they have even set up an online tool where you can go online and report anonymously. guess what, we have a link to that tool on our website. >> you have that problem of you put the security gate here, they'll attack here. >> in fact the guy tried to get through the first security at the soccer stadium, couldn't and then detonated the bomb outside and created a lot of problems,
11:34 am
but he didn't get inside. that's the concern right now with the super bowl. >> the good news is once you're inside you are safe. >> you're probably as safe as you'll ever be when you're inside that stadium. >> we went to walk around the stadium yesterday and i took my parents and it was unnerving the amount of fire power but then you settle down and think they're here for me. >> it is as secure as if the president of the united states was inside that stadium. >> i felt very vip. >> thank you, much. well, if you have a tip for our investigate unit, call us at 888-996-tips or send an e-mail to theunit@nbcbayarea.com. now to our ongoing coverage of earthquake safety in schools. new legislation proposes to tighten seismic safety. we were the first to show you dangerous debris inside
11:35 am
classrooms. >> sacramento takes up the action. and a new bill addresses public safety in schools. >> reporter: it doesn't take much to keep a classroom safe in the event of an earthquake. >> if we open up the cabinet, we'll see there are bolts. two in the bottom of each cabinet, two in the top of each one. these are attached to framing inside the wall or blocking. this is precisely what we want to see. >> reporter: what mark doesn't want to see is what he found inside napa schools after a 6.0 earthquake struck in the middle of the night. >> i know it's very scary, okay? >> reporter: book shelves blocked exits. a file cabinet toppled onto a desk. a drill press fell to the floor. >> and then also things that you wouldn't expect. light fixtures, a number of schools had light fixtures fail and some fall. >> reporter: we were the first to show you the chaos inside classrooms. structural engineer mary ann phipps saw our story.
11:36 am
>> if it was another time of day, we have been mourning the loss of students. >> reporter: she wrote at least three public schools experienced potentially life-threatening damage to classroom furnishings. prompted by what we saw, we reviewed more than five decades of seismic activity across the state and uncovered a pattern of failure. equipment on the floor in a shop class, blocked classroom exits, more fallen lights. northridge in 1994. coalinga in '83 and kern county back in 1952. each time earthquakes struck outside school hours when the classrooms were empty, just like in napa. >> we just should thank our lucky stars that it was during the middle of the night. >> reporter: assembly member bill dodd represents part of napa. he's now proposing new seismic legislation in sacramento, prompted by our reporting. >> that frankly was the impetus
11:37 am
for our bill idea because we were -- i don't think the word is outraged, but we were very concerned. >> reporter: dodd's bill would for the first time require school districts to inspect the contents of classrooms, inspect school equipment and fix seismic hazards. >> once this inspection is done, then they will be required to report it and then the law will make sure that they're done and compliant with the law and now no longer guidelines but requirements. >> and this would be every school in the state? >> every school in the state. >> reporter: superintendents would be charged with certifying that the schools are safe. darren drake is the fire marshal in napa and one of the first we talked to after the napa quake. he backs the legislation. >> school districts all have to look at that and base the corrections, the degree of corrections on their capability
11:38 am
and triaging those schools that need more work or that are in dire need sooner rather than later. >> reporter: more than a year after the earth rumbled in napa, dangers persisted at other districts. just last week we found an unsecured television sitting on an upper shelf in a classroom in the south bay. >> who in the world wouldn't support this? who wouldn't see this as a great thing and a great probability of saving injury or worse yet death in a school the next toim a major earthquake comes. who wouldn't support that? >> reporter: as sacramento prepares to debate the proposed legislation, one thing is for sure. another earthquake will happen, and it's only a matter of time. >> and that was jessica aguirre reporting. now, if the dodd bill passes, schools would have until 2019 to complete those seismic inspections. well, chicago just isn't feeling the force. a judge's ruling could kill plans to build star wars creator, george lucas' planned
11:39 am
museum. construction of the museum was to begin this spring. now that is unlikely. a federal judge ruled a group called friends of the parks may go forward with their lawsuit against the museum. they oppose the building on the complex saying it would violate public access laws. now, you'll recall this museum was supposed to be built in san francisco, but lucas got impatient with city delays. up next at 11:00, the super weekend means super sales for tvs. maybe you've seen them coming out in the parking lots in a store near you. we'll give you some tips on what you should look for the next time you buy a big screen. we're taking a live look from tiburon towards san francisco. beautiful day. more of this in the forecast and i'll show you what to expect if you're getting away. that's coming up in the microclimate forecast.

(instrumental) ever? we don't know, but we already know it's onof themost will this sunday's super bowl be one of the best games ev ever? we don't know but it is one of the most generous. >> five bay area nonprofits received money.
11:43 am
garvin thomas has been introducing us to those grant winners in our bay area proud. >> that combined $2.5 million is on top of 50 other nonprofits that got $10,000 each. it is a lot of money that can do a lot of good in the right hands, like those at fresh lifelines for youth. fly, as it's called, just celebrated its 15th birthday. started by then law student christa gannon said she volunteered to spend time teaching juvenile offenders about the law. >> i was driven by selfish motivations and curiosity and i fell in love with those kids. >> reporter: she said inside the walls of the juvenile justice system she saw young people the world had given up on, but ones she believed still had much to offer the world. >> it just stole my heart. i looked around and didn't see others willing to support these young men and women. >> reporter: so she started fly
11:44 am
