something to break off their fall, the top of the lid is kind of flexible, too, so it just seemed like the best idea at the same. >> anything to dampen the fall, right? >> they knew what to do. the brother and sister only s to the workers' quick thinking. and some more good news as crews are making progress on the oak fire burning near yosemite. the fire burned nearly 19,000 acres since it broke out five days ago in marchmariposa count. containment has gone up to 32%. the cause of the fire is still under investigation. there are growing calls to stop the transfer of patients out of san francisco's laguna honda hospital. the facility transferred 57 out of its 681 patients so far but four of those patients died within a few days of their transfer and at least three were taken to homeless shelters. supervisors unanimously voted on
a resolution calling on the federal government to take action and had strong words for health and human services secretary javier bar sharah. >> four people have died because you're forcing our hand and forcing us to kick out the sickest residents of our city onto the street. what is wrong with you? >> laguna honda lost medicare and medicaid back in april after seven ral violations. the feds ordered all patients out by september so the city can work on getting the hospital back in compliance. as california faces a drought emergency, the governor is reviving the biggest water project in half a century. the controversial delta tunnel project. the 45-mile long tunnel would divert water from the sacramento river and route it under the marsh land of the delta to pumps near tracy. the state could avoid pumping
limits by putting it underground designed to protect fish and send large amounts of water south to farms and cities. the plan calls for a building one tunnel instead of the twin tunnel plan pushed by jerry brown. >> that gives us flexibility with that new diverging location and we really need that to help address climate change for example where we understand as we move forward into the future we're likely to see more rain, less snow and that's going to change how we manage water in california. >> environmentalists in the past have called the project a water grab. they worry it will take too much fresh water from the delta and harm endangered fish. the project cost is about $16 billion. it's expected to face a lot of legal hurdles before it breaks ground in 2028. let's take a live look outside. first alert meteorologist paul hagan is here and paul, speaking of water, we don't have a lot of it but at least we have mild
weather that helps with the fire risk. >> right, when the temperatures are near normal, at least the vegetation isn't drying out at a faster rate compared to what is typical this time of year and the inland push of the marine layer every night we've seen for the past several days, it helps a little bit from 2,000 feet downward. the depth of the marine layer and low cloud cover and fog moving into the inland valleys. tonight patchy drizzle along the coast and hazy sunshine. some smoke from the oak fire drifting into the upper levels of the atmosphere. high temperature wills remain near normal. the change we'll see later this week, monsoonal clouds drifting towards us but looks like clouds, high up in the atmosphere i don't think we'll have to worry about cloud to ground lightening threat around the bay area. it's always a concern with monsoonal moisture. the fog is taking over. it's down to 58 in san francisco. 63 across the bay in oakland and upper 60s in santa rosa and
temperatures cooling off rapidly. 72 san jose, perfect temperatures a little on the warm side concord 82 but nothing we can't handle in the month of july. we'll see the fog making a big push into the inland valleys again by tomorrow morning but like this morning, like the past several mornings, it will back up out of the valleys the around the baby 9:00 or 10:00 with plenty of sunshine during the afternoon. temperatures tonight dropping down mostly to the mid to upper 50s, close to what is normal for this time of year. the very coolest spots in the north bay valleys dropping to the low 50s. temperatures will warm up slowly while the fog is in place but then stay start to take off 80 by noon. and most inland temperatures at lunchtime in the 70s. 50s and 60s around the bay and upper 50s along the coast is nice for lunchtime conditions around the entire bay area and we'll warm up more during the afternoon. up into the low 80s for most of the north bay, low 80s santa clara and mid to upper 80s inland of the east bay but the warmest spots 90. 60s and 70s around the bay with
upper 50s along the coast. the haze overhead, some of the smoke from the oak fire could get dragged down to ground level by just gravity but that flow of on shore winds is going to keep the air from getting any worse than moderate. it will be moderate at the worst for inland parts 0 theof the no bay and east bay but overall, we'll see a lot of green dots on the air quality map, mostly good air quality again thanks to the on shore breeze. temperatures in the 60s in san francisco, around 70 for oakland and low to mid 80s for san jose through the weekend, through the first half of next week, a bit of additional cloud cover some natural shade every once in awhile for friday, saturday and sunday and maybe another push of monsoonal moisture by monday and tuesday of next week. that is something we'll have to watch along with maybe yet another one by late next week, potentially bringing us cloud to ground lightning threats but that is beyond the scope of the seven-day forecast. we'll worry about that once we're closer to it. >> sounds good. start with what is in front of us. >> exactly. >> thank you.
