6:03 pm
officials to those impacted by the fire. unfortunately, there is not a lot of progress made in fighting it. it is at 0% containment. we know lives have been lost. we have been listening to that meeting and there is a little bit of hope that came out of it. any shred of hope that the people most impacted by the fire are clinging to. thousands of acres burned, more than 100 structures destroyed and more tragedy after two people found dead in a vehicle. >> we know that we lost multiple folks in the midst of this fire. there are two that have been confirmed dead, after the sheriff's updates this morning. it is a loss that is unimaginable. zach: cal fire says vegetation is extremely dry. >> i feel blessed that we had repeat rains and we're going to

6:05 pm
we're going to try really hard not to go, because we can stay in the middle of a big gravel pit and hopefully that won't burn. zach: as they continue to fight the extreme fire, they are doing all they can to keep out of the smoke and keep up their hope, grateful for the people working around the clock to protect their community. so, again that update from the community meeting, you heard the forest supervisor that multiple lives have been lost, but two have been confirmed. hopefully, the number stays at two, but she is alluding to the fact that more lives were lot. the fire is at 55,000 acres burned, 0% containment. firefighters are going to take advantage of the weather that came through overnight. liz: zach, is there any new information about what may have caused this fire? zach: yeah, liz, it is still early on in the investigation. they are working to find out the cause, but they said it is clear that lightning was not a factor
6:06 pm
this fire. liz: we will see, zach. thank you so much for that update. you can track wildfires burning right now in california by using the online interactive wildfire tracker. it shows current air quality and you will find that on our website, so far, smoke from the mckinney fire have not arrived in the bay area, dan. dan a.: that's right, liz, but we have unsettled weather to talk about. here to talk about that is abc7 meteorologist sandhya patel. sandhya: the reason we're not seeing the bad air quality because air is coming from the south pushing the smoke forward. it is picking up the monsoon moisture driving it into our state. so far, we have seen rain with those thunderstorms, which is exactly what we want to see. some lightning showing off of our coastline in the last few hours. those lightning strikes are now gone, which is good. we want to see the rain.
6:07 pm
we don't want to see dry lightning starting new fires. we get you to the east bay, pa pacheko, around buchanan road, it is going to be in f fairfield tonight. we're going to widen out the picture here. hour by hour we go, next few hours, still the possibility of a few showers or isolated thunderstorm here in the bay area and certainly up to our north and in sierra nevada. i wouldn't hang up the umbrellas just yet. i will let you know how long the showers will remain in the forecast. dan a.: only on abc7 tonight, the truly brutal attack of a 70-year-old woman. let me warn you, this video is upsetting to watch. we should all be paying
6:08 pm
attention, dion. dion: you know i have spent the last several years reporting on attacks on asians in the bay area. this is one of the most heinous acts i have ever seen and this family was not afraid to speak out and for good reason. this is the housing complex where mrs. zhang's mother has spent the past two years hiding from covid until yesterday. >> yesterday was one of the days for a long time she went out, and this is what happened. dion: 70-year-old mrs. wrenn now hides for another reason when she was approached by four juveniles who asked her what time it was, cro according to police. >> they searched my body and i
6:09 pm
quickly realized when they were up to no good. dion: that is when they realized she had an iphone 7. the suspects follow her into the elevator when she refuses to give up her phone. >> they got mad and pulled me down. dion: already on the ground, mrs. wrenn is kicked in the face. >> they use their fist to hit my head multiple times and they pull me down to the ground and kept hitting me, kicking me. dion: the horror doesn't end there, when she tries to hide in the hallway, the suspects return again, not to steal her watch or earrings, but to take her keys and take turns assaulting the terrified senior. >> i never expected this would happen to us, even though we saw a lot of reporting from your station in particular, you,
6:10 pm
ms. lim. dion: while they can't sleep because of the trauma, they wanted to speak out for a purpose. >> i want this story to come out, so people know, so for other people to be aware to be safe. dion: sfpd tells me the community engagement unity is working with the family and offering them resources to recover and heal. my own heart keeps beating when i see that video. while we were conducting the interview, police officers from the central station brought over a fruit basket and flowers and offered support to this family vowing to take care of them. she did not suffer internal bleeding or life-threatening injuries. a tough one to watch, dan. dan a.: tough one to watch, but good for them for speaking out. who would do such a thing?
6:11 pm
dion, thank you. you can help find an ally and take action. go to for a list of local resources. liz: earlier this around, president joe biden announced that the u.s. killed the leader of al-qaeda on saturday. pres. biden: on saturday, the u.s. led an air striking that killed ayman al-zawahri. liz: al-zawahri is believeed to be one of the key planners of the 9/11 attack and was in the planning of the u.s. embassies in africa. dan a.: coming up next, we're joined by abc insider, today's topic, nancy pelosi and the tensions raised because of her upcoming trip tom taiwan. liz: we will have michael fenny live with us tonight. how can a woman get a ticket for

6:13 pm
permanent solution to homelessness. while helping every tribe in california. so who's attacking prop 27? wealthy casino tribes who want all the money for themselves support small tribes, address homelessness. vote yes on 27. this is john. he hasn't worked this hard to only get this far with his cholesterol. taken with a statin, leqvio can lower bad cholesterol and keep it low with two doses a year. side effects were injection site reaction, joint pain, urinary tract infection, diarrhea, chest cold, pain in legs or arms, and shortness of breath. with leqvio, lowering cholesterol becomes just one more thing life throws your way. ask your doctor about leqvio. lower. longer. leqvio.
6:14 pm
dan a.: a loud protest taking place this morning outside of nancy pelosi's san francisco office over her proposed visit to taiwan. organizers say the house speaker's trip would escalate tensions with china and might even provoke a war. pelosi is touring asia and she is touring with officials in singapore. the white house is trying to tamp down any concerns while supporting her trip at the same time. china, which used taiwan as a
6:15 pm
breakaway province has called the visit a provocation. >> it is not uncommon for congressional leaders to travel to taiwan. it is very much in keeping with our policy and consistent with our support to taiwan under the taiwan relations act. we shouldn't be intimidated by that rhetoric. liz: reports say pelosi will visit taiwan tomorrow and tuesday. i spoke to rick cline about the rarity and the magnitude of this visit. >> it is a significant moment for speaker pelosi to step out on her own. there has been a bipartisan collaboration for support for taiwan and speaker pelosi is likely to cast it as a statement of human right, but as speaker of the house, she can visit anywhere she wants. it is unusual to have a speaker of the house in the same part as the president to visit taiwan.
6:16 pm
liz: let's start with phil mateer. dan a.: let's talk about how it is rai raising tensions betweene united states and china. >> it has been a boiling point over the last couple of years from everything of freeing tibet, the muslim minorities to the questions of is there slave labor going on there, and now more recently the expansion of the chinese navy and air force into the waters around china and into the pacific trade routes. all of this is bubbling and on top of that, we have the human right concerns, which has been a top concern o n of nancy pelosi, going back to 1991 when she went to beijing and unfurled a banner to show sympathy for those who "died for democracy" in china. she has been a burr in side of
6:17 pm
china for a long time and she is taking that message back. liz: let's say that pelosi doesn't go to taiwan, what possible repercussions could that have then? some people say beijing is going to view washington as threatening, but ineffective if she ends up not going. >> it is interesting to see for something, what some people say polarizing, she is a partisan player. she is getting bipartisan support for this trip, not necessarily from the biden administration, which has its hands full with the ukraine and other aspects in the world and not looking for another boiling point. but she has bipartisan support and if she doesn't go, she is going to get bipartisan criticism. dan a.: well, she is going to get criticized either way it seems. it could be the perception of the democratic party and where
6:18 pm
it stands. >> right, and that is a question of where the united states stands. we say we're in favor of human right here, we're in favor of human right there. we're in favor of workers getting a fair shake and the environment and all of these different issue, but we turn a different eye when it comes to china. we get our cell phones. tech makes billions of dollars off of factors in china. they get upset because the chinese "steal our technology" and use it to make their own money. nancy pelosi has been, like i said, a critic of china, at the same time here in the bay area, we have big supporters of china, not to say the least diane feinstein who started the first sister city with shanghai and she found herself in a chinese jam when it turned out her driver for 20 years was acting for a secret agent and reporting on her actives.
6:19 pm
it is a hate or tense relationship in going in and pelosi is in the latest chapter. liz: really, really quickly, phil, what is the big picture benefit for pelosi for making this trip? what is she hoping to get out of it? >> i spoke to her about this in 1990 and 1991 when she was not elected to congress. this is not to score points for her. this is her doing, being nancy pelosi. dan a.: it is going to be an interesting few days. liz: president biden continues to testify positive for covid and what his doctor says is likely a case of rebound covid after taking paxlovid. >> as you know, some of you have had covid and loved ones and close friends that had covid. the symptoms that you had don't go away. they linger, the minimal symptoms linger for some time, so you can expect that.
6:20 pm
and so, with that there is no reoccurring symptoms. he is feeling fine. liz: the president continues to work while in isolation. see that video there. dan a.: let's turn our attention to really an unusual but welcome day today, liz. liz: i know, i have seen colleagues go out in raincoats and i'm like, what is going on? sandhya: typically, this is one of our driest months, dan and liz, but we do get measurable rain around the bay area, anywhere from .05 in san jose. we have this beautiful video from the san jose camera and that is part of why we're dealing with the showers. i'm going to get you in a little bit closer. show you where the showers are going, heading towards fort ross between 7:04 and 7:16.
6:21 pm
we did have lightning strikes off of the coast, but luckily, the lightning strikes are gone. we're tracking showers moving towards the fairfield area. i want to show you, going back in time, what we're keeping a close eye on, which is tropical storm frank. frank is expected to continue to weaken, but it will continue to move northward and reminisce of frank could bring us more mugginess and stay tuned just in case later this week, we're talking about another round of showers and thunderstorms. the dew points in the 50's and 60's. when you're around 62, fairfield, napa, in the 62-69-degree range, it is humid. now, temperatures are in the mild range. mid 60's to mid 80's right now around 89 in livermore. live view, you will notice a few rays of sun through the clouds.

domino effect in jurisdictions in other areas and nationwide. dan a.: 950 monkeypox doses were administered today. people started lining up at 4:00 a.m. hoping to get a shot. san francisco last week declared a state of emergency to allocate and expedite resources to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible. even with the declaration, the mayor says more help is needed. >> from my perspective, this is completely controllable, but we're not responding as quickly as we should. just because this is disproportionately impacting one community doesn't mean it can't impact people in general. dan a.: san francisco has more cases than any other california county, 310 at last check that is more than a third of all of the state's cases. every bay area county is reporting at least one case, by the way. liz: still to come, michael finney helps a woman from

6:40 pm
