>> right? all right, we do have some serious things to talk about here. the weather department has seen a lot of earthquakes happening across the region, and i wanted to show you this 7.2 that happened earlier this morning in peru, really large earthquake, but no threat of a cinemedia for just a little while later, there was one in santiago, chile. we also started out this morning with an earthquake on the ridgecrest fault.all this, most likely tie into that pacific ring of fire, victory that we're seeing happening there. we'll continue to monitor that. we've also gotten an update on the job this morning. this is what it looked like last week. as these areas in red across the central valley. now, we are seeing it going up in a category, with an exceptional drought, the highest level of drought now, over 11% of california is in that exceptional drought category, meaning, the water shortage is on, and most likely, the wildfire season is going to be very difficult for us. as we get a closer look at the
bay area, not much of a change for us. we're in the severe drought. we are going to most likely see that continue as we enter into our dry summer months. at least we do have cooler temperatures, and also higher humidity, breezy winds picking up today. highs for the coast, reaching into the low 60s. mid to upper 70s for our inland valley. slightly warmer in the valley tomorrow with highs in the low 80s. we will get some cooling on saturday. then, more clouds moving in just to our north. possibly some rain for fuller northern california. it was really nice here for our memorial day holiday. temperatures in the inland area, mid to upper 70s. up to 80 degrees on memorial day. then, getting hotter earlier next week. san francisco, also looking at 60s here with clouds and fog at time. breezy winds -- keep the jacket on if you will be in the city or near the coastline. mike can even washing the commute. things are picking up now? >> picking up a little bit there the richmond-san rafael

here in the bay area. the memorial plans to honor the vta railyard shooting victims . 9 employees died 1 year ago today, as they were just starting their day. the effort to make sure they're never forgotten. this is "today in the bay," broadcasting live on roku, amazon fire, apple tv and online. good morning to you. i'm marcus washington. >> i'm laura garcia. to the latest out of texas in moments. first, today marks the dark day in bay area history. >> one year ago when, but this time, a gun and started shooting at a vta railyard in downtown san jose. when all is said and done, it would become the deadliest mass shooting in bay area history. nine employees died at the shooting. the nine people you see right here on your screen now. >> a private memorial is about to get underway for vta employees and their families at the site of where the violence
to voice. it's happening at the vta building in downtown san jose. when it does happen, we'll try to tap in and listen to a moment of it, but we are also going to stream the memorial online. you can watch it live in our website, nbcbayarea.com. later today, at 9:00 this morning, a public service will take place at the new resiliency center that was established in the aftermath of that rampage. developing in uvalde, texas, along with the profound sense of grief, new questions emerging about the police response to tuesday's school shooting. 19 children and 2 teachers lost their lives when the gunmen barricaded himself inside the classroom. here's a look at the growing memorial that's just outside of that school. you can see, right there, the 21 white crosses, representing all of the victims. >> and we're learning more about the children who lost their lives. jaclyn cazares and annabelle rodriguez were cousins.
jaclyn's father says, she would go out of her way to help and offered annabelle's butler, opening up about the emotional pain he endured looking for her that day until he got the dreaded news. >> all victims died in that same classroom this morning as we learn about the teachers that tried to save each of those students. we know now about it from sam, live outside of robb elementary school this morning. one, sam brock. >> reporter: good morning, marcus and laura. uvalde will graduate and have a similar tomorrow, what would have been the last day of school today. they have been canceled altogether, as we look at the memorial behind my shoulder and the sobriety from the 21 cross is right there. 19 kids, the ages of eight to 10, killed. 2 teachers, losing their lives doing what they could to protect the children at the time. we know parents go into this
profession, teachers go to this profession because they want to shape young lives. they don't think they have to sacrifice lies. the two women, collective 40 years of educational experience for garcia and mireles. mireles, her daughter positively on social media in trivia to her mom. she said, the half the memory hole, and she can relate to any family.she talked about how her mom would come in and wake her up when she keep hitting the snooze button. something we have all done before. the fact that her hands were callused because she would hold a cross in her off time, in addition to looking after her family. someone with a bond with her daughter, a bond that is now gone and will never be replaced again. we have also garcia, a mother of four children, married to her husband for 24 years. she liked because, and someone who is, as will, a noted number
of the educational community here, who is now gone. it does draw the question, what kind of paradigm, what kind of environment are we living in now where teachers have to make this kind of a decision. do i get in the way of the gunmen and absorb bullets so that i can try to save lives, but also not be able to return to my family? we spoke to a teacher from marjory stoneman douglas, it what is now the third deadliest school shooting. she described that, the fact that mom mode kicks in, because many teachers or parents. in this case, teachers we spoke with have a fifth grader and a child that's going into kindergarten there's no way, in her words, she cannot be retraumatized hearing what happened in south texas. this just keeps happening over and over and over again. she says, like the rest of the country, we thought there was going to be change, after 20 kids were slaughtered. then again, hundreds of thousands of students from parkland marched for their lives in cities all over the country, including san francisco. i'm number the coverage was incredible and poignant.
here we are again, after yet another chapter happened. teachers say, we have had it. enough is enough. at some point, we have to reach a threshold. the expectation should not be that teachers go to school, and may have to protect the children by sacrificing their lives. but that is exactly what we witnessed in the community. >> that's what they have to do every time they walk into a classroom. not only the trauma, you brought that up as well, but the loss of these families think about the trauma of the other children that survived, that they were in that classroom and what they witnessed. they're affected for the rest of their lives. we pray for them, sam. >> that's exactly right. >> reporter: it really is heart breaking. everyone in this unity is damaged for years, if not decades, not just the people who died and the family members, but everyone here. they will never be the same because of what transpired. >> thanks for bringing us the latest on that, sam brock.
now a live look at the state capitol, where state lawmakers are moving for new gun control measures in the wake of the texas shooting >> let's go now to "today in the bay's" barbara del. bob, there's new action the senate? >> your correct for the telephone is to disseminate has sent six bills aimed at reducing gun violence. these are proposed laws that would restrict advertising of firearms to minors, put restrictions on ghost guns, and among other things, allow governments and victims of gun violence to sue the makers and sellers of firearms. a few weeks, present in part of the east bay, and california is having to step in with the federal government not doing so. >> i am just angered at the lack of action. my hope is that this will be the wake up call they need to do what their constituents actually want. 90% of americans, rick ellis of party ideology, want company hands of federal background checks. >> we need to realize that people who think that, well,
maybe we can just implement cover gun laws, that will solve it. chicago and l.a., new york, they disproved that thesis. >> governor averages name checked the state of california. i would caution him from doing that. particularly -- just go to the cdc website -- look at that gun murder rate in 2020. 67% higher than the state of california in 2020. >> nbc bay area spoke with a trainer of the firearms academy who said, in his opinion, a change in gun laws won't save lives, because nationwide, there's more guns than ammo then there are people. now, in the past, if passed by the senate, the new gun control laws will be on the governor's desk by late june. reporting live, barbara dell, "today in the bay." >> the mass shooting in texas
is heart breaking for so many. for parents , that sinking feeling is all too familiar. when mass shootings occur, parents have to figure out how to talk to their kids about violence, safety, and now, even survival. i sat on my colleagues like ron phase you and talked about some of the healthy ways to talk to kids about tragedies. >> the reality is we don't have control over everything that happens in the world. i think a three-step process of connecting care and challenges is really helpful. to connect, it's really understanding your children, making sure the relationship is strong with them, and then care is helping them understand that they can work through anything that they're worried out. if they are anxious, it's okay. you can be inches with them. the challenges trying to help them develop some skills around with the anxiety, or billing afraid. it's okay to be nervous but we're going to talk to you about how safe our school is.if you don't want to go to school today, maybe that's okay, but your friends are going back, and you want to build a
community around having a plan and walking with the children. it's critical to meet your kids where they are, as opposed to what everyone else is. >> like you mentioned before, they are little sponges. they can pick up on our emotions, as well. active shooter drills are a part of a loved school curriculums now. it's very important. but i wonder, how does this affect a kid's sake? >> you know, is different for every child. given the situation that we're in, coming out of a pandemic, everything going on in the world, i think there is a heightened anxiety for children. i think parents and children are concerned, and are fatigued, and it so important for them to have outlets. but it doesn't have to have a huge impact on children for long-term if, in the short term, we're having conversations and stockpiling positive experiences, and they know that door is always open for them to have a conversation with you. >> always so important, all those car rides home. thank you so much for joining us
>> you got it >> great advice. no doubt, all parents are with their kids right now, trying to process it. >> it's really tough, dealing with the kids, how they deal with it. also, a lot of adults are still having a hard time. >> right. you have to watch her emotions, too. they also learn of how you deal with it. >> right. it's tough. good job with that, laura. >> thank you. stay with us for the latest on the recent shootings and elements in uvalde on a website, nbcbayarea.com. find a different ways to help the community there. there are several verified gofundme pages that have been set up for those victims for the shooting. we posted the link for all of this information in our trending box. a live look outside now. san francisco there this morning. a foggy drive on the golden gate. on your ride, a layer of fog that's crawling into the city by the bay. ringing in a little cooler temperatures finally, kari?
>> it will bring in a big dip, some 25 degrees cooler than yesterday. palo alto, starting with clouds with a mix of sun and clouds today, headed for the low 70s this afternoon. reaching the upper 70s for the tri valley. oakland today, reaching 68 and 71 in santa rosa. we'll talk about what's ahead in the weekend coming up in a few minutes. mike, you keeping an eye on what's happening now and what's ahead >> pretty standard commute. what's ahead is more traffic into chase center. not only is the game going on tonight at 6:00 p.m. inside, but also outside, there's going to be a crowd i think it will game tonight. folks will be for a big selection to watch. on the other side of the bay, watch the crowds after work passing by there, heading east to the coliseum. the central coliseum, the site at 6:40 for the athletics. another issue. right now, pretty good around the bay. one more to talk about today, the memorial going on for vta. there will be about 20 or 30 minute delays for those, as
ginger talked about, as we can plan for that and observe that remembrance. becky. >> maybe people can deal with a little bit of that today. thank you. still ahead, checking in on this. >> laura, bob was checking in on the action in sacramento and the in action in washington. let's look at what the senate is not doing. then the big board, a good day for stocks. the dow is recovering, up 327 points. the warriors, one win away from the nba finals. coming up, what you need to know at the chase center to enjoy the potential big win. you're watching "today in the bay."
