6:01 pm
for the coast guard to pull him out and he was find quite a way down the shore from where he fell in. witnesses say the woman didn't try to fight the rip current and floated on her back and came into safety eventually . the man was placed in a rescue basket, taken to an ambulance and they started cpr as they took him to seton medical center. there is no worth at this point on his condition. >> don't fight the rip current, best advice. thank you, andria borba. new at 6:00, we were first to break the story and now confirmation on bart's decoy cameras. 77% of the cameras are fake or broken. juliette goodrich on bart's stunning admission and one lawmaker who is outraged. >> reporter: we have the hard numbers now. bart is admitting that the majority of their cameras aren't working. they are either fake or broken. 70% are dummies, the other 7% are inoperable for some reason

6:03 pm
lobby did catch the murder suspect running away after shooting the passenger. bart sis it is getting new trains start -- says it is getting new trains starting in 2017 and all new trains will have working cameras. >> we are working to outfit all 669 train cars with working cameras. >> reporter: but state senator steve glazer of orinda said this about the lack of working cameras on trains, bart's recent promise to add working cameras is a hollow cover-up for years of bad choices. passengers we talked to say it's time to get them all working. >> i'm kind of scared to ride at night. i only ride during the day. but it would be nices to have them all on. >> reporter: the cost to get all of these cameras working by 2017 will cost approximately $1.4 million. in dublin, juliette goodrich, kpix 5. there is a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect in the

6:06 pm
democrats and republicans here? >> reporter: next on the calendar is south carolina for the republicans. a lot of -- ben carson i should say in particular who has not had a good showing already heading there. the candidates will be heading down south tomorrow and starting this whole thing all over again. and then of course we have the nevada caucuses for the democrats. >> all right. danielle nottingham on that horse race there in happens for us, danielle, thank you. san jose is trying to draw up a wish list for billions in transportation projects. the city is hoping voters will approve a half cent sales tax in november. the money would generate $6 billion for roads, extending bart to downtown and improving caltrain service. the tax would remain in effect for 30 years. it would cost each resident about $40 a year. the city leaders met today to hash out priorities for where

6:11 pm
julio fuentes, who reportedly alleged he has been the victim of discrimination because he is latino. the mayor's departure leaves his job in the hands of a deeply divided council one still trying to find out how the success of the super bowl gave way so quickly to the turbulence of small town politics. >> instead of folks in our community really talking and celebrating about the success of the super bowl here in our city, everyone is, you know, contemplating and speculating as to why the mayor stepped down so abruptly. >> reporter: the city council can appoint someone to the mayor's office or hold an election. the 7th seat on the council and the 7th vote will likely hold the difference for the balance of power here in santa clara. in santa clara, devin fehely, kpix 5. it is on! organizers have given the green light to the mavericks surf contest. the announcements was made today on the event's official website. the contest is set for friday. chopper 5 caught the surf as

6:13 pm
coastlines in the world much of it untamed and undeveloped. but sarah newkirk worries that could all change starting tomorrow. >> the future of california's coastline is at stake here. >> reporter: for the last 40 years the california coastal commission has strictly enforced the california coastal act of 1976 but now a battle in the agency may force a change in leadership and a change of direction. executive director charles lester could be fired tomorrow after criticism by some commissioners that he is not an effective leader. but environmental groups worry that's just a smoke screen to bring in someone else who may be more developer-friendly. >> i'm afraid that what's happening right now is an assault on the integrity of the commission. >> reporter: from small projects to large, the coastal commission must approve any plans for development on the coast, but the process has been called a black hole. developers say the commission drags its feet, causing unnecessary and costly delays. >> i do have friends in the development business and i
6:14 pm
think they have the patience of job because it takes them forever to do their development projects. >> reporter: but for people like paul wilkes who loves the beauty of the california coast, protecting it should be the top priority. >> we all know business has its place in the state of california. but so does our future. and i think we should be looking 1,000 years in the future instead of 20. >> reporter: tomorrow's meeting of the coastal commission will be attended by thousands of people. we will also be there. we'll be setting back reports on kpix 5. reporting live from seaside, len ramirez, kpix 5. governor brown is asking the federal government to help out beleaguered crab fishermen. the governor made the formal request today for a disaster declaration of the opening of crab season has been delayed now for nearly three months because of a toxic acid. the port of san francisco going to provide some of its own relief, waiving docking fees. the governor says the delay has already cost the state about

6:16 pm
crippling drought is also costing us big on your utility bills. researchers at the pacific institute say that our four- year drought is costing consumers an extra $2 billion in utility bills. why is that? well, without enough water to power hydroelectric dams, the state has had to supplement with natural gas. it's not cheap. greenhouse gas emissions from power plants are up 10%. on that note we're looking for rain. >> searching. >> right. >> searching. there's a near miss and then there's a don't even worry about it. it's really far away. we need it. come on back. couple week break it's fine. kind of maybe wanted that pause button for a little bit in the wintertime to catch some sunshine. now we are talking up to 19 days. it's time the pattern flips back but mother nature is on her own timing not yours and mine. look at the highs to the south today. santa cruz on the boardwalk in santa cruz today, which is very
6:17 pm
susceptible to warming up way northeast wind. 58 degrees today. monterey a record high of 85. the one record we set here in the bay area is san jose with that gorgeous sunset in the south bay right now. san jose 7 6. fremont 73. radar is looking. we have gone dry. we'll stay dry for a while. the mavericks forecast if you are hanging out near half moon bay, you can't see much. you might just want to be close to the action see what's going on maybe grab some good food over at the chowder house. sam's chowder house. in the morning it will be partly cloudy 52 degrees friday when mavericks is going to happen in the afternoon. it will be cooler along the beach. the 70s will be gone. we'll be closer to 60 degrees if you are heading to mavericks on friday. it is happening. it is storming offshore. and that's where we get those waves. they are not generated right here. then generated back here and we get those huge swells moving thousands of miles. it's active to our west but all that activity, literally hitting a wall and forced to go
6:18 pm
up and over that wall. problem for us because the wall is blocking any precipitation from making it here. the ridge is beginning to weaken. it's beginning to move but it has to move more than it's forecast to in order for to us get the rain back so the storm track is way up in canada right now. futurecast says that path of least resistance in the atmosphere will be closer to us but still in central and southern oregon by friday before it moves back to the north over the weekend. so it will get closer but nowhere close enough to give us any widespread rainfall. we'll be dry at a minimum. tomorrow low 70s so amazingly not as warm today but still well above average. fremont 70. san jose 71. vallejo, san rafael, concord, walnut creek, all in the mid- to upper 60s. we stay mild mid-60s near the bay, low 70s inland all the way through next tuesday. >> wow. >> so february historically our second or third wettest month. this february, it's certainly, um, off to a slow start. and that's putting it very nicely. >> a nice valentine's day weekend. >> well, you know what?
6:19 pm
>> that's the flip side of things. >> that brings up an awesome point because now the restaurant gets bigger because you can choose the indoor or outdoor tables. >> there you go. >> so if your favorite restaurant says they are booked, alfresco! the outdoors. maybe they have an extra table now. that's a great way to look positive. >> the glass is half full. paul, thank you. well, it is a sign of how far the housing crisis is spreading. the fierce competition for an affordable apartment. >> it's a welcome sight in the sierra. but tonight, the hidden danger buried under the snow putting skiers and snowboarders at risk. ,,,,,,,,

6:23 pm
20 meters. >> reporter: these victims are fictional. and this is just for practice. but the prospect of an avalanche rescue is very real in the sierra. >> it's happened before. it will happen again. for us to be safe in our response, we need to train. >> reporter: that's why the north tahoe fire protection district is on the top of mount rose training for the possibility of an avalanche rescue. so far this year there haven't been any rescues of that kind but the chances are higher than normal. >> any year we have snow we have avalanche danger, this year we are dealing with more snow, i mean, higher avalanche potential. >> reporter: there's another layer to the danger it's buried deep inside the snowpack. it's a type of snow called surface hoar. january 5 it got buried under several layers of snow. it shears easily creating a slip joint for a slab of snow
6:24 pm
to slide off the mountain. >> very strong but once it gets buried, um, if it has a trigger, it can become very weak and create avalanches. >> reporter: it's an ever present invisible threat to unsuspecting skiers and snowboarders. and it will be causing problems for the rest of the season. it may have fallen in january, but it will be hidden under there until it melts. north lake tahoe fire says there are several avalanches a day in the sierra many mound made to avoid catastrophe. but there are plenty of these caused by people in the backcountry. so far no one has been injured. rescuers are prepared. they know it's only a matter of time but someone isn't this lucky. in the sierra, emily turner, kpix 5. coming up, spotting terrorists on social media. controversial balance between your privacy and national

6:31 pm
by a government watchdog. >> allow this person to kind of be an independent third party that reviews requests and information that the government is seeking. that just creates another layer and in exigent circumstances that layer can sometimes be the difference between life and death. >> reporter: but the president acknowledges any government involvement in people's online presence is a sensitive issue. >> we want to make sure that we're preserving privacy that people feel confident that the government isn't snooping on their emails or their texts or what have you. >> facebook has said it will aggressively remove terror propaganda and just this week, twitter claimed to have suspended more than 125,000 accounts for threatening or promoting terrorist acts. a new law requiring sex offenders be identified on their passports is already being challenged. a civil rights group filed suit in san francisco saying such identifiers put individuals and their families at risk. president obama signed the
