we're not dealing way lot of major issues. just some slight delays, a bit of a hiccup westbound 205 g getting onto 580. the altamont 25 minutes from 205 to 680. if you are a super commuter taking the westbound 580 trek, so far traffic is light which is good news as you are headed through there. most of our travel times are looking good, all in the green with no major delays. b.a.r.t. heads up, weekend track replacement between south hayward and union city stations will be in effect. bus services will be available, add 20 to 2025 minutes to your trip. a lot of people headed home for the holidays so expect busy conditions on the roadways. gas prices are at a ten-year high, adjusted for inflation. >> it may be at least a few more months before drivers start to get a break. the current national average for a gallon of unleaded is $4.60. these prices are happening just as americans head into the summer driving season.
>> i won't do quick trips to florida to see family and stuff in the car, and i'll probably limit some of my plane travel just until everything drops back down. >> as we progress beyond memorial day, i now peg our odds at $5 a gallon of gasoline nationwide at 60%, so that could be coming. >> demand usually starts to fall in august which could help the cost of gas to drop. here's a look at prices in the bay area. the current average price per gallon in san francisco is $6.38, according to gasbuddy.com. san jose is $6.25, followed by oakland at $6.24. happening today, memorial day event planned across the bay area, the annual mill valley memorial day parade will start with a pancake breakfast followed by a parade and a carnival. san rafael will hold a special service at veterans memorial and hillsborough a parade outside its town hall with a music festival until midafternoon. people are taking a lot of flights this weekend and a lot of flights have been canceled.
over 2,000 flights have been canceled so far, but the bay area is doing well actually. sfo canceled 15 flights, oakland canceled two and san jose also canceled just two. let's take a live look at sfo where it's hard to tell if the few flight cancellations really have had much of an impact. sfo told us on friday, checkpoint traffic reached over 120,000 and that number was just over 103,000 on saturday. the expected amount for yesterday was just around 112,000. they project 108,000 travelers today. a lot of grills are getting fired up this memorial day. one of them sparked a backyard fire in oakley that quickly spread to several homes. kpix's 5 da lin reports one person nearly died. >> took this hose, went to the back fence and watered everything i could find to try to keep the flames off until the fire department got here. >> god help us, lord. >> reporter: anthony kight saw the fire burning in a neighbor's backyard just before 7:00 saturday night. >> god, help us.
>> a couple people started yelling. i knew somebody was calling 911, so i just went to war with the hose. >> reporter: the barbecue fire started on claret court, one house down from him, but quickly spread to the giant cypress trees next to his fence and neighboring yards. >> it was just adrenalin flowing, just keep it off the fence because you could see this is all straw and wood back here. these trees were on fire, i was afraid the embers were going to land on that. >> reporter: neighbors say the grill's propane tank exploded, but leaving was not an option for anthony. >> i have a handicapped wife, in the bedroom, and she's bedridden and plus i have my animals. >> reporter: he says the garden hose bought him just enough time. east contra costa fire protection district firefighters showed up as flames were getting out of control. >> the fireman came back here, i yelled the fire was under the awnings. he got on the radio, he called
and they had hoses back in here within two minutes. >> reporter: neighbors and police officers helped them evacuate his wife. >> i got my wife out of here screaming and crying the whole way, because you know, it's hard to move her. she's in a lot of pain. >> reporter: the people who started the barbecue fire declined to talk to me. firefighters say their home has severe damage in the back and is now boarded up. firefighters say three neighboring homes had fire damage to exterior walls and the fire destroyed two sheds. >> i have a friend that lived on the other side of empire avenue and she lost her home to a fire in a barbecue fire on father's day several years ago, so the first thing i did was get rid of my gas grill. >> reporter: many neighbors and anthony say no hard feelings. they hope this will be a teachable moment. >> i'm just sorry it happened especially for the folks there. they were just trying to have a barbecue on memorial day, but lesson learned, look how easy it can get away from you. it got away from them that fast, and now they're not sleeping in their homes tonight. >> reporter: in oakley, i'm da
lin, kpix 5. >> as you saw, there was property damage but no injuries. the fire department says it was an accident and the folks who started the barbecue won't face any fines. >> time now is 6:07. some renters in the east bay will pay a sharp rent increase come july. oakland housing regulators say july 1st, some landlords will be able to raise rents by up to 6.7%, that's the highest one year jump in the city's history. >> one oakland councilmember is fighting back. justin andrews talked to a renter who is scrambling right now trying to figure out what to do next. >> you can understand why she says she lives in oakland and loves the area because she loves the diverse people. it's been home for her for well over a decade. she's been looking at the calendar, counting down how many days she has before her rent jumps trackcally. walking inside her oakland apartment for almost 20 years, mariella gonzalez is now scared. >> pay your food or pay the rent. >> reporter: that's a real
reminder each and every day for her. as she cleans the dishes, she's trying to clear her mind of what could come. >> this is too much. it could not happen. it cannot pass, because there's already too many homeless in the city, and then i don't want to be one of them. >> reporter: housing regulators in oakland say starting in july for rent-controlled properties, landlords will be able to raise rent by up to 6.7%, the highest one-year jump in the city's history, many say the timing is just terrible. councilmember carol feiff is leading an effort to bring oakland in line with neighbors like san francisco by further limiting price increases on rent-controlled apartments. >> the monthly rent due on the first day of each month will be increased. >> reporter: as gonzalez reads the letter she got from her landlord earlier this month, she can't help but think what she's going to do in july. some property owners say the
price hike is necessary because they, too, are facing rising costs. >> you know, i understand they need to make money or they need to pay bills or whatever, but they need to think of others, you know, they need to help people that are low income so they won't end on the street. >> reporter: until then, she says she will keep fighting and hoping a compromise gives her a fresh start. >> i think 6.7 is too much. 3, i think for me 3, it's okay, it's double of what it is right now, so i think it's fine, but more than 3%, i don't think it's acceptable. >> i did reach out to her property manager who said nobody is helping landlords. i asked if they'd be willing to compromise and do a roughly 3% raise in the rent as gonzalez recommended. the answer was a no. councilmember feiff's ordinance is scheduled to be voted on at the council meeting tomorrow. if passed, the new policy would undo this year's rate at the very last minute.

>> that was betty i couldn't reporting. for the band, the close-out show was extra special because it was a homecoming, all of its members are right here from the bay area and we first brought you carnaval streaming live on "cbs news bay area." you can watch 24/7 on any device that downloads the stream. the stairs leading up to the point reyes light house are closed because of strong winds. the observation deck above the light house is still open, though, but parking lots nearby could be full because of the memorial day holiday. let's see if that wind continues out there right now, with the check of our forecast with jessica. >> all right, well you know what? let's start off with the fact it is a beautiful monday morning for us. we're dealing with sunny skies across the board, waking up with the beautiful sunrise, current temperatures in the 50s and 40s. as we extend into the next couple hours, winds will kick up
significantly, case' the case in the bay and inland areas. the national weather service issued a red flag warning for solano county at 11:00 a.m. this morning, extending throughout the afternoon hours ending tomorrow at 8:00 p.m., due to windy conditions and low relative humidity. we're keeping a close eye in the weather center. look at today as we extend into the afternoon hours, these are the winds pushing from offshore consistently anywhere from 25 to 35 miles per hour, especially along the san bruno area up into san francisco, as we take a quick look at what we can expect for today, like i said t is a windy setup but dealing with sunny skies no matter where you live and inland areas we'rein u. 50s along the coast, a good breakdown of oakland getting up to 71. 78 in napa. we do warm up for the next couple days. here is the reason why. high pressure is pushing in from the south, ridging its way into our coastline as we head into our tuesday forecast, even into wednesday. will you see temperatures just a little bit above average, by the
weekend, low pressure pushes itself in, bringing us more cloudy skies and even a chance of rain in certain areas to the north. let's get a good look at what we can expect for the next six days for the north bay. we warm up into our tuesday setup, even wednesday, upper 80s in our inland east bay areas, just to cool down into the low 70s and mid-70s by friday and saturday, partly cloudy skies, so really we're just seeing a little bit of a roller coaster effect, still in the gradual warming trend for now. by the rest of this week we cool down significantly. let's look at the roadways right now. it is not a bad time at all to be on the freeways. a live look here, this is our photojournalist brian kiley in mobile 5 headed to the bay bridge toll plaza and just a couple cars with him but overall it's a quiet ride this morning. so if you're up early getting ready to hit the freeways this morning, so far so good. we haven't had any major trouble spots or issues or backup, no metering lights on at the bay bridge toll plaza. so you do have to wake up early, the benefit is you're not dealing with brake lights or
issues. pretty easy ride here under ten minutes from the maze as you head over into san francisco, and it's pretty much the case for most of our bay area freeways right now. later, that will look a little different as a lot of people get on the roadways action coming home for the holiday weekend. here is a look at one of our mapping systems, this is the area coming into the altamont pass out of tracy and just a slight amount of slowing as you get on to 580 itself. overall it's pretty quiet. we're clocking in some really nice speeds, 70 miles per hour in some spots, it's clear from here all the way towards the dublin interchange with no brake lights or issues there. all of our bay area bridges looking good as well. we showed you the bay bridge just a second ago, san mateo bridge looks good as well with a pretty quiete n 880 and 101. 880 itself all clear, the nimitz freeway no delays there. if you're headed to the peninsula out of the easay thing nicely. let's show you the nimitz freeway. traffic is moving pretty clear here in both directions, but again, a lot of people heading
home this afternoon from the holiday 1:00, ben adwao 58 west, west 80, 101 will see brake lights, i-5 likely busy as well so plan for that but right now, if you're getting out early, you can plan for easy conditions on the roadways. len? >> it is now 6:19. a pleasant surprise in walnut creek over the weekend. we'll introduce to you this little beethoven, when we come back. ♪

>> reporter: parents want to know why law enforcement officers, including a federal tactical team, waited outside the classroom for more than 40 minutes before confronting and killing the shooter. the texas department of public safety said on friday not engaging the shooter earlier was clearly a mistake. >> of course it was not the right decision. it was the wrong decision, period. there's no excuse for that. >> reporter: president biden and the first lady visited uvalde on sunday. the two laid flowers at the memorial outside the school, met privately for three hours with the families. >> do something! church service, pledged to do something about gun violence. 11-year-old bella barboza was friends with ellie garcia, one of the students killed. >> ellie was a very bright girl. >> reporter: bella hopes her friend's death will help spark change. >> we need to get justice for these children and that this world is not a good place for children to grow up in.

that means of us didn't have to go through as students, a pandemic. high school seniors now graduating didn't get that full four years of in-person experience. there was remote learning of course and coming back and getting used to in-person classes and tests again. i talked with phoebe golson, a bay area high school senior. all of this she says was an adjustment. >> that was just kind of like, you know, a little bit of a learning curve, but i would say the most stress came from definitely like college applications, very time-consuming. i was constantly comparing myself to people around me. even though other students wouldn't say anything mean or you know, disparage me in any way, i just felt like i wasn't good enough compared to the rest of the applicants and that. oh, they're taking so many more aps than i am, they got better s.a.t. score and that means that i'm not going to be as successful as them. >> i remember all of that stress feeling like you had to do so much to get into the college you wanted to, comparing yourself to
others. thankfully phoebe says she was able to navigate through all of this. she's excited to be going to college in the fall. when many of us were in high school, mental health wasn't often talked about. phoebe says she feels that changing and that's helped her a lot. >> yes, i definitely think it's being talked about more than it ever has in the past. teachers i've had have been very accommodating and understanding, and i think friends are talking a lot more about mental health with each other. it's becoming less of a taboo. >> so she said it's a conversation she's having more with friends. she says when facing challenges in high school, she learned that it was okay to ask for help. we know it's important but that's not something that's always easy to do. in the newsroom, i'm jocelyn moran, kpix 5. >> it's good to hear she's having the conversations with her peers, many parents are struggling this morning with how to talk to their children about such difficult topics related to high school and stress.
>> joining us live with some expert advice on how to get through those tough conversations, dr. catherine goodfriend from kaiser permanente. good morning to you. >> good morning, thank you for having me. >> thank you for being here. doctor, just as jocelyn, our reporter mentioned, our teens are facing an incredible amount of stress these days. what advice can you give parents to how to recognize these warning signs? >> i think the most important thing is really connecting with your kid and often with teens, just cooking kdinner together o going for a drive and stopping and listening, and not bom bombarding them the minute they walk through the door of asking specifically how was your test score, and just backing off and listening, taking that time to talk, and then focusing on healthy things to do together as a family, going for walks, exercising, eating well, but then looking at your teen and seeing if you notice a big difference in their behavior,
their concentration, their emotional state, that's when you start to need to dive deeper. >> and when does it cross over from that everyday stress to really needing to talk to someone like a parent, a counselor or therapist? >> everyone has a bad day now and then. that's okay to have a good day. you have to have some bad to balance it out. if you see they have hopelessness, depression, having what we call a lot of somatic complaints, headaches, stomach aches, changes in their body, that's the time when you need to really say let's go deeper. so if it's symptoms are lasting for more than two weeks, if you notice something like maybe abnormal substance use, if they're eating too much or too little, or sleeping too much or too little, that's when it's time to talk with your family physician or pediatrician and just ask them what's going on. >> when we all know most teens
spend their time on social media. it's going to be in our lives whether we like it or not. how do we teach our kids to use it in a healthy way? >> social media is a great thing. it increases social connection, it allows kids to really explore topics that they might not otherwise learn, but we need to talk to them, number one is anything you post online will always be there. we need to really talk to them about being nice online, because cyberbullying, they say that over 50% of children are bullied online at some point, and we need to have them not compare themselves to what others look like on tiktok or other social media platforms because we know that everybody can enhance your -- people are just showing the most awesome part of their life, and we also just really want to be safe. don't text and drive. don't walk and be looking at your phone, and we need to put this down in the evening, at least an hour prior to bed,
because often kids will be up really late at night and parents are sleeping and they don't realize it. it's a healthy tip for anybody to put your phones away at least an hour before bedtime, because the back lighting and lighting from computers and phones will decrease melatonin which helps us to fall asleep and good sleep is essential for health especially for children. >> that's something the family can do together as a united front as well. dr. catherine gutfreund from kaiser permanente, thank you for your information and joining us. >> thank you. house speaker nancy pelosi's husband was arrested for dui in napa county. records show 82-year-old paul pelosi was arrested around 11:45 saturday night and booked into the county jail at 4:00 a.m. his bail was set at $5,000, and he was released. speaker pelosi's office told kpix 5 she won't be commenting. it happened while she was on the east coast. pelosi gave the commencement speech at brown university yesterday. time right now is 6:41.
