sounded serious. a semi, pickup truck and two sedans. so four vehicles. the change from red to yellow, in the brisbane area. that is starting to thin out. smoke and haze at the bay bridge toll plaza. everyone, with the exception of the day after chemo shouldn't mean going back to the doctor just for a shot. with neulasta onpro patients get their day back... to be with family, or just to sleep in. strong chemo can put you at risk of serious infection. in a key study neulasta reduced the risk of infection from 17% to 1%, a 94% decrease. neulasta onpro is designed to deliver neulasta the daafter chemo and is used by most patients today. neulasta is for certain cancer patients receiving strong chemotherapy. do not take neulasta if you're allergic to it or neupogen (filgrastim). an incomplete dose could increase infection risk. ruptured spleen, sometimes fatal as well as
serious lung problems, allergic reactions, kidney injuries and capillary leak syndrome have od. al or shlder p in, trouble breathg right away. in patients with sickle cell disorders, serious, sometimes fatal crises can occur. the most common side effect is bone and muscle ache. ask your doctor about neulasta onpro. pay no more than $5 per dose with copay card.

fire that we are monitoring out of the north of us in butte county, we want to reiterate santa rosa schools have just decided they are going to close this morning. they sent out this tweet that says all santa rosa city schools closed friday, november 9th. air quality is entering the hazardous range. remain indoors at home. smoke is drifting into the bay area making air quality bad for so many of us. especially bad in the north bay. i wouldn't be surprised, mike, if we see a lot of schools in oakland and san francisco limit outdoor activities today. >> they should. if they're thinking about it, just go ahead and do it. it's not going to change with the north easterly flow. even though it backs off a little bit, it is still pulling in more smoke from the fire that's out of control. it will continue pushing out
particulate matter that is unhealthy for us. look at the sky over san jose. it looks like it is on fire. no fire close. trust me. 101 and 880. visibility as low as two miles at sfo. four miles at livermore due to the smoke. it has nothing to do with fog. this is the way it looks from san rafael. looking towards the golden gate bridge. oh, look, the fog is back. cooler weather is here. no, that is smoke. it will still be hot today. well, warm, put it that way. we're still going to hit the 70s in many areas. haze will large tonight. cooler tpbgs thanks to breezes. fire danger possible again saturday night, into sunday. a smaller wind with slightly slower winds. but still high fire dangerib le. 71 to 75 this afternoon.
