>>in the morning they have it under control right now that still trying to get it out 're like you mention i also saw it during my drive into san francisco thankfully at this time we have no reported injuries on scene to take a look at this video you can see just how massive those flames were local businesses in the area was able to talk to some of them and they describe how scary it was to see this fire now it started at 04:00am this morning again. this is a four-alarm fire more than a 100 fire units responded to the scene they also had about 45 fire engines here to respond to this fire now in doing so that also damaged one of the apparatus is here one of the fire trucks were damaged trying to put out this fire now again speaking to business owners here on the scene they tell me that the warehouse that was actually burn was actually a facility where a lot of the fisherman keep their equipment so if you can imagine over the weekend
for the holidays are trying to prepare for a lot of business for this to happen a lot of the business owners in the area are devastated by the fire department is still investigating the cause of the fire something very significant that we know about this fire is that one of the fire boats saved the jeremiah o'brien now you might know that liberty shield bill during war war 2 and named after the american revolution warship so very historical ship being saved here in this fire now i got a chance to talk to some of the crews on scene and talked about the massive blaze this morning. >>the fire boat say plan to stamp cisco fired and 3. it was put in position to protect the historic blind us all the saint francis for my operations chief saved this the jeremiah o'brien nestle. >>now again some of these fire engines on scene also helped stop the spread of that fire
to neighboring buildings as they continue to work to try to get put out there's also a museum here on the here and they also say from being burned in that fire again we'll be here all morning very active scene but for now like those is this is that i spoke to you know just devastated with the fire. they're hoping things can get put out before the holiday weekend really starts to begin for now reporting here that here at the harvey kron 4 news, thanks right now. >>weather service says smoke from the fires going to linger for hours today, let's get a check of the weather with john trimble is he standing by with a look at that so the winds just a not loans to strong this morning, john. >>so yes that's the situation. james winds pretty calm this morning. so you did have that plume being sentenced the upper atmosphere at least initially pushing down that day but most of it just spttled right in the debate you can actually see right here in san francisco. that plume still putting up some smoke, it's definitely not as dark as it was earlier some wider smoke which is a sign of
containment that those crews have gained on the fire but obviously that hayes is really subtle didn't now the most dangerous risk is with them that if you block areas of the pier itself but if you are sensitive to that smoke you can see how it is filtered in across the rest of the city of san francisco and a look from across the bay down at the city shows you you can't even see the city skyline just barely the top a sales force tower and you there now what's going to happen today winds are going to pick up a little bit later on this morning that can help us turn to continue to defuse the spoke a little bit we're already seeing that smoke actually be doing to become the pews or the past 30 minutes you had improvements in visibility and you're seeing a little bit less about easy puso there's already improvements being seen but as we do push or went to the rest of the morning, especially if you are in the city of san francisco, this is something you want to be mindful of if you have some sensitivity to some poor air quality conditions, stay inside this
morning and just give that opportunity for winds of filter. the smoke out a little bit later on this morning as far as what the nws reported take a look at that you see that little black dots there at the northern end of san francisco. this was actually heat signature reported by the national weather service up from a satellite detection earlier on this morning you can see how cool the rest of the bay area was and then just how much heat that fire was putting up earlier on were clear across the bay area you can see any smoke here on local a satellite imagery. but what i did a dry out for us our prevailing winds which put that plume just south of the city earlier on this morning again this plume is it really detected by radar anymore at this point as that fire has a really stopped putting up the heavy smoke that it was earlier most of what you're seeing right now is for smoke impact is located pretty locally of the north beach marina district scalp, hollow areas right around the
vicinity of this where that smoke is just settled down into the surface. good news as improving conditions can be expected a bit later on this morning as winds to pick up and just as the spire produces light smoke, but we are going to be taking a look at that throughout the morning we'll be keeping you updated. i have more in your forecast talking about our heat wave ahead of us still to come back to you guys. >>all right and just in time for memorial day weekend dine-in restaurants. wineries and pubs are reopening in sonoma county. they just got the state's approval up there to move forward in phase 2 of reopening the restaurant's food facilities can now open for outdoor dining only wineries and tasting rooms and bars and pubs can offer curbside pickup. >>delivery and outdoor meals summer day camps and other recreational programs can also provide children care and supervision of children with limitations of course and ceremonies including graduations have to be held with household members attending enclosed vehicles like we were talking about
yesterday. we talked with sonoma county supervisor david braben about what the new health order means now for dine in restaurants. >>think what you see from all jurisdictions is really working with their businesses to make sure that we can provide a pathway to success and quite just like this entire shelter in place some will be able to do more than others and that's just unfortunate at the end of the day it comes down to the social distancing requirements, the ability to separate tables by 6 feet some some restaurants and some bars and wineries even have more space and others and we're just going to have to work through that, but there isn't a willingness to use as much public right of way as possible and to streamline the approval process for that to allow restaurants in and other activities to take advantage of that additional space. >>effective immediately more california businesses can now offer alcohol to go with their meals the state's department of alcohol beverage control
says that bars and wineries and distilleries along with breweries that do not have their own kitchens but that partner with meal providers can participate in all of this however they have to be in a sealed container, the drink said is and can be purchased in conjunction with a meal only. >>don't over crowd, the parks in san francisco that's the warning from mayor london breed the city is expecting this warm a weather over the holiday weekend is going to drop a lot of people kron four's dan thorn has more on how officials are preparing. >>the parks across san francisco will likely have plenty of visitors memorial day weekend. nice weather presents attempting opportunity to get outside after feeling cooped up over the last several weeks as the weather is amazing the focus as it's great i'm so excited about the long weekend ahead. >>marina green visitors like shuri collect cars shops say they'll be taking advantage of the city's green spaces but she'll be doing it safely like many others who have been out we see a lot of people weighing knots ensuring that the follow the you know 6 feet

lot has changed during an online conversation friday, san francisco city officials announced those changes are built around safety me still need to be in pods of 12 or older kids. the minimum session for care providers will be 3 weeks and the policy rationale behind that is to keep kids from normally during a normal summer kids will go to one week of this camp and we cannot camp and will become another camp. >>and health guy our public health officials have asked us to keep kids together in a consistent pot. >>as a result camps will not look like what you see in this video from previous years and while rec and park camps will focus on the outdoors that will be more difficult for nonprofits like the y m c a of san francisco as we are not able to load them into buses and take them into parks. >>are museums are not necessarily yet open for them. >>and typically will we will take them to many of our community museum partners, the exploratorium the the academy
of sciences the discovery museum and also to acquire parks where they can play outside so this will be in major change in the programming because most of it will be inside in place. >>puppeteers and magicians will be brought in virtually as opposed to in person and the y m c a camps will also focus on learning and helping kids catch up. >>we're going to be emphasizing a lot of project based from learning so that they're not still been farther behind among the safety measures that will go along with the summer programs enhanced cleaning and temperature checks. >>at golden gate park dan kerman kron 4 news. >>well the weather is really working out yes weekend is up today his emphasis nearly at the bay, but hopefully you said riding into like all how pretty the fog was so it's a little darker than normal and come to find out it was a smoke it didn't dawn on me to let go is halfway driving up the that's right there's that
fire 45 john. >>yeah and the smoke is definitely having an impact right the city of san francisco but at last year a looking at the san francisco skyline from across the bay to probably not noticing it as much just looking up right above you because it has some of the right in so from timber on you've got blue skies overhead but if you look out at the horizon there's that smoke pretty obvious hanging out down towards the city of san francisco where is in the process of confusing we're starting to see improvements but certainly it is still hanging out and with calm winds. this morning. it's really just sitting there for the time being but crews are getting the upper and we're seeing a lot less that dark black plume of smoke being put up so there are improvements already being made and that should help to improve the situation gradually throughout the morning as for right now temperatures, nice and cool 40's and 50's for most areas, although or anyone spots like fairfield in pittsburgh are now up into the 60's today, a touch warmer than we have but
this ridge of high pressure builds in this is a very strong ridge of high pressure something that we call an omega block just building right in this is going to create a dome of heat sitting right across the bay and that some of our hottest weather that we felt so far this excessive heat watch will take effect monday that's the morial day leading us into tuesday wednesday and thursday not just for inland areas, but you see bayside and even san francisco, a areas lit up in red and that is a sign of just how hot it's going to get so even though today and tomorrow actually pretty comfortable days by memorial day on monday we have solid 90's 1 with 70's out by the coast. and that is really just the start of it because after that is when are even hotter temperatures begin to kick up so today is a good one to get outside enjoy as much as possible sure it's warmer areas like concord any off late going down to work back in the 80's but compared
to the 90's and triple digits up the same cities of around the corner today's going to seem like a cake walk week ahead of the rest of your forecast you see those upper 90's appearing at but by monday memorial day. and then i have it all about their triple digit heat for inland areas, tuesday wednesday and thursday this is how longer excessive heat extends for you do see relief come next friday when we fall back into the 80's and but look at how that it stretches all the way out to be coached specially come wednesday loss of 82 out towards the coast and some near 90 degree highs if not into the 90's. right alongside the bay, so some very hot weather just around the corner time is now definitely to get prepared for that and in the meantime just enjoy today and tomorrow because it's going to feel good. some parents were about to be back to you guys the studio, thanks john all right, let's get back to that breaking news story this morning out of san francisco that massive fire. >>that engulfed a warehouse appear 45 and you can see here in different video this morning showing how big those
flames are often the distance you can see from across san francisco. if you had a sideline to the to the to the marina or to the fisherman's wharf area this is what you saw earlier you drilled in over the bay bridge sought i drove in over the gates on it. >>the smoke was from miles around luckily, nobody was hurt and have it out got proper training, harvey stand by we're going to another live update from her coming up in it's the 6:10 woke-up-like-this migraine medicine. the 3:40 mid-shift migraine medicine. introducing ubrelvy™. it's the migraine medicine for anytime, anywhere a migraine attacks without worrying if it's too late or where you happen to be. one dose of ubrelvy™ can quickly stop a migraine in its tracks within two hours. many had pain relief in one hour.

are okay, it was just that building here that was damaged the sea building and the fire officials just told us that inside of that business are some boating companies, some fishing also what they're investigating right now is to hear itself. >>take a listen to what the fire officials are talking about in that investigation. >>investigators early on working this fire and they will help their cause and origin at a later time, it's too close to a year to the incident or is >>okay let's talk about that historic ship here the ss lion, the liberty ship here bill doing war war 2 and named after the american revolution shipped now that captain jim air mild winds to the ship was named after it's been here at
the pier for over a decade nearly decades, it's been here so that was a really big concern of the fire crews on the scene this morning as they were trying to make sure that that ship was not damaged now there are some commercial businesses here in the area along with that news and like i mentioned the museum is okay along with those commercial businesses that fire still is burning but they said they have a hold on it and they don't anticipate that fire spreading to any of the other businesses in the area now, here's the big thing this morning. they're trying to figure out not only a cause of the fire so they're continue that investigation but they want any boaters in the area to make sure that you stay away here and peer 24 along with any swimmers that might be in the bay this morning we want to make sure you stay clear of the area as they continue to try to get a hold on this also continue to investigate the integrity of the pier to make sure that there was not any extensive damage we do know inside that warehouse where there are some
fishing businesses they quit man along with him grabbing equipment inside that warehouse we do know that a couple of the walls all the buildings also were damaged in this massive fire but no damages or no injuries rather to 80 by this morning and again what they're trying to figure out is what caused this massive fire that could be seen from the bridge and they're just grateful that they were able to say that ship along with the news in here and that no lives were lost are ian james, all right a good that they were there and it's a busy weekend in san francisco. so. >>somebody gets up now coming to the city they're going to see the smoke or a bit concerned at all to get a handle on thanks a lot right now. >>except for the lingering smoke of course it's still in the air we got a way for that to get out of here the studio. yeah, a little bit just to touch. we got john trimble here talking more about what the winds are like right now and hopefully when we might see the smoke kind of move off john. >>yeah, definitely improvements guys which is great news because his both of you guys notice that you're
driving in that smoke was hard to miss earlier this morning that plume is continually dying down you can still see it here in this view from our sutro tower little bit of white smoke lifting from the fire the a's is pretty obvious that is sending across areas like marina embarcadero and you can see even up towards the golden gate bridge in some cases but the good news is that deep black plume that was there just a couple of hours ago as one really settle down notes now so as a cruise of dance in the spy or a you will start to see improving conditions. one of the reasons that it's just so easy out there across the city of san francisco right now as we do just how still air pushing that smoke or right down to the surface. so it hasn't had a whole lot of a chance to get pushed out of the region, yes, just yet. you are starting to see a bit more of the city's skyline from alcatraz just a sign that smoke is now beginning to diffuse and yes, definitely some improvements. this was earlier this morning
right here you see that the black area right there this is a radar detected heat signatures and well the rest of the bay area was nice and cool this morning. that's how hot this fire was burning up you're 45. now skies are nice and clear and so little smoke that we can't even see anything on visible satellite from it. earlier this morning you can see those orange arrows that's the direction that those light winds were pushing the upper advance of that bloom, so if you are in areas as far south as brisbanei as down towards even san mateo you may detect a slight chance of pace but most of that smoke, it's really just settle down in the northern part of san francisco and is already beginning to defuse so that is certainly good news. there now, but also good news got some heat ahead of us and talking when to expect the bulk of that you still to come in your full forecast so stay with us back to you guys, thanks john at 7.36 and that the county was the first in the bay area to reopen restaurants for dine and services kron four's gayle

a public school with teachers and friends and. >>and see all these you know be back in that environment that they're used to but it be so different. these are photos of tracy nelson's children doing school work from their home in brentwood because of the shelter-in-place order. nelson says she is considering home schooling her children if they have to practice social distancing. >>or wear a mask in the classroom, this fall a 9 year-old the other day i had him. >>just try on one of my mask well he was doing his math paper, i'm just to see what you would do and it was less than 60 seconds i mean he could not. it was just other parents are concerned it may be too early for students to head back to school bora bevilacqua has a child with special needs who has a fragile immune system. there's a there's a chance if i don't home school i'm going to be taking. >>chances in my kids are going to be going to school and i'm going to probably be a little bit of a nervous wreck.
>>the state superintendent of public instruction tony thurmond hosted a virtual meeting with representatives from 1000 california school districts earlier this week, he said any plan to bring students and staff that will require everyone to have proper protective equipment and lesson plans will likely be a blend of in person and online teaching thurman said school districts will make their own decision on when and how they'll reopen the brentwood union school district superintendent said the guidelines expected from the state next week are critical for our district to make determinations about the start of school as soon as we know the rules we will be working with their stakeholders to make determinations about when and how we will reopen i think every family has to do what they feel is best for their family. >>and at this point i'm not going to rule out home schooling in brentwood, michelle kingston kron 4 news. >>as we head to break here at 7.44 another reminder of breaking news story this morning. we have smoke over

pier 45. right along fisherman's wharf and the flames were shooting out of buildings at 04:30am in the morning part of the building collapse and then. >>they got more than a 100 firefighters out there and put that fire out of on the scene right here you can see just how intense that fire was and the response from firefighters that multiple ladder trucks showering rain shower water down on that fire doing their best to keep it from spreading of which they did in fact leave crawford made a harvey said i live at the scene to tell us more about how they were able to keep the fire to the warehouse and save a lot of the surrounding buildings reyna. >>it's a quite a lot of work like you mentioned over a 100 firefighters here on the scene massive this morning. i'm actually joined live with the man himself has been out here all morning working the fire, you know one let's talk about what you saw. >>so thank you this fire came in at 4.15 this morning, our first warm companies described and actively. large fire to the rear appear 45 see as an
charlie if you look behind me that's the bar and appear 45 this fire quickly grew to a 4th alarm fire. through the duration inspire we saw wall collapses which did not injured firefighters or damage fire apparatus. we did have a truck company 13 which if you look at the second tower. that's basically where trucks are team was at the beginning of this fire. the flames are so high. it was reaching the tip of the 100 foot aerial ladder truck. the damage the tip of the truck. we ought to put water hoses on that truck and we kept that truck loading thousands of gallons of water on this until we're able to pull it out and replace it with another apparatus, we train here. specifically to make sure that these fires don't spread that truck company really cold that fire in the initial phases from spreading to the adjoining a warehouse on this side which we can't see is the historic
jeremiah o'brien war vessel. from world war 2. fire boat 3 did an amazing job, putting thousands of gallons of water in between the building and that vote as flame links were allowed being over that vessel again hundreds of feet high. we're happy to say that there is minor damage. some blistering to this vessel in some of the acts are old deck diesel gas tanks week were actually melted the tips of them were melted so if those had gone we could literally lost the jeremiah o'brien. so there's anything positive out of this tragic event is that at the beginning of memorial day weekend. we are able to. save really the jeremiah o'brien the tribute to all those who have given. for our country and that is one thing that can be positive out of this tragic event and as we
progress on this fire which is still active is not contained are under control. are key points now are making sure that the large volume of debris that has collapsed down into the building are out our investigators are concerned that we may have some homeless in the building these are only speculations based on i asked accounts of homeless getting into these buildings they will be looking at footage in making that determination at this time. in repeated attempts by our rescue companies under fire investigators have resulted in no indications that they're being victims in this fire. now i know this morning lieutenant baxter you talked about it being so difficult for you here on scene to get this fire put out we talk about that. >>yes so we train out here specifically because this is an area where we how all large volume of real estate large
warehouses, it's on the waterfront this building that burned down is a peer it's above the water. we have hydrants that are around the area on different grid system so that we can actually it's just the pressure to keep our fire apparatus as you can see the fire aerial trucks with thousands of gallons of water we need that pressure if you look over to my left you can see the large diameter hose that a special host tender that was called in from outlying a station rings and this hose that we basically out an above ground fire hydrant from an off ridge fire system so that we have water powering the other far operatives that we can't see behind us so that we have adequate pressure to put this fire. out those are just some of will to use that we had to go around to make sure that we can do this we would not have been able to get this rapid the aggressive fire attack if we did not have passed training in collaborative free
as dallas partnerships with entities such as the port the police department the coast guard and are joining community members who really assisted us in past events past trainings and drills to allow us to facilitate what we have today. we know the jeremiah was say we know the museum was saved, let's talk about those businesses that are inside that were damaged so at this time, i know the red light fleet is one of the confirmed entities. >>the jeremiah o'brien is one of the entities that are in there we have some crowding companies in addition companies that are in there. >>i worked still working on establishing confirmed verification of those those additional but at this time, those companies are going to be a near total loss of their assets as this building is completely collapsed down its base pearce structure. and again we went to a defensive mode immediately on the spire due to the volume of it. and
we were able to keep this from spreading to the other warehouses. we're very saddened by the fact that we lost these businesses but something that is tradition in san francisco and unique to san francisco. as we have a number of city as well as private entities free established to help business owners employees and affected parties come out and recover from these incidents is to take you for all your hard work this morning and for joining me for live interview this morning we take here now again a the main message he wants to tell everybody today as they continue to investigate the integrity of the pier is making sure that if you're swimming or if you are in the water nearby in a boat just want you to stay away while they continue to try to get a hold on this fire but for now reporting appear 24 reyna harvey kron 4 news, thanks rant. wow when you back up and get that view of the fire this morning. it was incredible and right now on the phone mount lasher the executive director of the national.

have i have not had a chance to get in there. but we have stop in the area that are close ending so yeah, ok i just wonder if you could see a fire or anything as i saw driving into work this morning. yeah, i mean for you, but i didn't i didn't he personally yeah it's pretty incredible. they save it, that's a great thank thank you so much for joining us this morning. thank you all right stay safe and have a great memorial day james and you see that video just that plume of smoke going up some of the shots are pretty incredible to see. >>the weather service says that the smoke probably going to linger a little bit in the air in fact that's what john was saying earlier this morning, he joins us now live with another update on the smoke when it will go away and of course the rest of the john. >>in james, yeah, hey is still lingering around, although we have seen some improvements so there is still an impact, especially if you are in san francisco or maybe right along the bay out towards the bay bridge in the east bay, a look at this case that still persists haha in northern parts of san francisco right here you can see from sutro looking out towards pier, 45
there you look really closely and pointing it to them out and that is that smoke plume a big difference were at earlier, we could see a dark plume just lifting from this fire and that's what was resulting in the really easy conditions. we had earlier i've been watching this for you all morning long and i can tell you it just gets clear in clear as the smoke begins to defuse so even though it certainly doesn't look like the clear as day just yet we have seen some pretty big improvements, your san francisco from the north bay right here couldn't even see any of the skyline a points earlier now your sales for star at least there in the distance a little bit of a hazy start that's not any marine layer you're saying that's just the a's from the fire right there and earlier this morning as that fire was burning of the warmest a this was a satellite detected a heat signatures right here and you could just see how hot the fire was burning in that dark brown and black eye compared to the cool search the morning
that the rest of the bay area jets. so this was a massive fire certainly put up a lot of smoke there for a while the good news is is that we haven't seen a lot of that smoke making its way elsewhere in the bay area part of that is because winds have been pretty cop that plume earlier this morning was drifting today. east to southeast and uh you are maybe smelling a little bit of it if you are stepping outside bayview in brisbane but most of you that are noticing a right there in the vicinity of the blaze within just a few blocks radius is where it's at its worst and as i mentioned already beginning to defuse so that is good news. we are going to see increasingly clear conditions and overall a nice and sunny day even for san francisco this afternoon. but the not so good news for me is just around the corner, hottest temperatures of the year so far and potentially record breaking heat, i'm talking what that means for us as we make our way it's memorial day still to come in your full forecast. >>back to you guys all right john. thank you time now is 8.13 as we head to break again a reminder. our breaking news

four-alarm fire this all happened around 4.15 thankfully, we know that no one was inside and they're reporting that no injuries i just want to give you guys some perspective here at pier 45 this is where it's located there are a lot of them commercial buildings here in the area along with them some businesses in storage units here on scene but the main thing they're talking about this morning. it is the museum that was saved and the s as chair mile ryan that was also save you might remember this liberty ship was built during world war 2 and named after the american revolutionary war ship captain jeremiah bryant. so that's where the ship gets named for him, but it's been here for decades here at the pier. now of the port official told me in terms of what was inside of that warehouse, we're looking at some marine businesses like on fishing gear with a fisherman's used to store lot of their fishing gear also i'm told that red and white fleet office was inside now they are also telling me that the jeremiah

coronavirus pandemic going on right now and then also you have a business owner like that just nervous that he's not going be able to make money over the holiday weekend. so a lot of stress again if there is any silver lining it's the news danielle brian i would say to this morning currently they're trying to figure out the cause of the fire so they're still investigating here on the pier and my kids can see very busy behind the fire crews still on scene trying to get everything cleaned up this morning. they want people to know that are in the area to stay away also if you're swimming swimmers to stay away from here 45 along with voters that might be out here. but i'm just grateful that they were able to get out and that there were no reported injuries star ian james all right, thanks a lot of >>well let's talk more about the smoke them that are going to be dealing with from that fire. it hung around a bit this morning lingering pretty close actually to ground level but john here with more on the outlook and when we can expect the skies to really start clearing still a little hazy right now john. >>yeah, definitely still easy
james, but there have been improvements which is good news but that smoke right along embarcadero right there up and even in some areas like the marina out towards north beach, i'm still a not to cause some problems for those who be sensitive to a look at this you can see a lot more of the north side of san francisco from sutro tower you can still see some of that smoke lingering from the blaze looking really closely pointing it out on them out for you that smoke plume not near as dark as it was earlier this morning it's all bury easy conditions right across the city. so yes, seeing improvements still a touch of haze though waiting out from across the bay that hayes has defused a little bit further but conditions are improving and as wind speeds do generally pick up this afternoon this is going to help to disperse smoke right now san francisco still remains really calm and that's one of the reasons that we've seen that smoke just settled right down into portions of
san francisco look at what happens this afternoon though winds will pick up that's going to help to defuse that smoke a little bit more and really by the afternoon and into tomorrow it will be a thing of the past not really something we're talking about anymore skies are beautiful in crystal clear as we zoom in on the city you can see the location of that please and where that plume of smoke was sent earlier this morning you stop mostly drifting right to the south right across the bay of course now is that smoke plume really isn't really a thing anymore as a cruise control of this place, you're going to see a lot less of it throughout the course the day now from smoke to eat that's what we're talking from this point beyond in the rest of your forecast we have some triple digit keeper some parts of the bay come next week which all beginning to still in the rest of your forecast. back to you guys in the studio, thanks a lot john. >>dine-in service is now a lot of restaurants in sanaa solano county and businesses are helping that customers feel

right we're back it's 9.15 again our continuing coverage of this breaking news story this morning, the fire that broke out appear 45 long fisherman's wharf at the time boy it was pretty intense us around 4.30 this morning that this video was shot you can see the huge flames and that large plume of black smoke going up into the air. a warehouse caught fire and burned down in fact we have a satellite image shows you the warehouse we're talking about it's on the right hand side of the piers that whitish roof warehouse right next to the uss jeremiah o'brien luckily, the floating museum is fine. the o'brien doing okay say for some minor damage with some blistering paint from the heat but the warehouse right next to it did in fact burn to the ground with the walls collapsing in. we actually have a live picture of the smoke that still visible coming up that burn pile basically what used to be the warehouse you can see that there towards the bottom edge of the screen and that's this. the smoke has been sort of wafting about the embarcadero in the waterfront all morning long that looks like beginning
to thin out, but that's what i'm wondering is is it possible that it could be heavier now or. >>the farther reaching than it was earlier let's go to that maybe the wind patterns play into that or something because it wasn't that bad and it almost looks worse than when i first drove n. >>yeah, that's the thing is now that it's tough using there are going to be areas that maybe pick up on it a bit that didn't earlier as those is just sitting right to appear right there but the good news is is that as an stuff using its doing so all are out there. a side of the blaze instead of just going to one specific area so it shouldn't have too much of an impact on one area of particular you'll just notice haze that gradually spreads continues to diffuse and then less and less of it's in the morning so that certainly the good news. we actually did see that smoke plume drifting over sfo earlier which could have resulted in some travel delays have there been any travelers it's a very quiet. a memorial
day weekend out at sfo you can see the sunshine that's over and so this is good news smoke, not having a big impact once you cross and burned on out and jumped in slept where that plume had earlier been drifting southward towards now as far as temperatures it's going to be a comfortable day ahead of us today spell last time i'm going to be saying that for a while though enjoying today's weather 60's and 70's right now we have some 80's this afternoon but those 80's are going to feel like having 2 parents were about to be as high pressure builds in daytime highs are going to skyrocket and by memorial day on monday. we have some very hot weather that's enough for an excessive heat watch to take effect starting monday through thursday and not just for inland areas, but all along side, the bay and even out towards the coast and areas like san francisco. how are we talking here why memorial day on monday we got 90's for inland areas 70's along the

around for some time. >>take a mental image of what i've got on your screen right now which is your by you. this was the view at that same spot at 07:00am this morning and it shows you just how much improvement be what a difference so smoke is diffusing it's starting to become less and less a parent but as it sinks in spreads across the bay you may notice that slight a view that he is even in areas and the east bay are up into the north bay right alongside the bay where it's like sinking right along the shoreline, so just something to note if you have some sensitivities right now certainly not the time to be running right alongside the bay as those hazy conditions to persist winds are still very light and that's one of the reasons this airs just sunk in state and place but once we move our way into the afternoon. yes, what winds will be picking up a little bit that's just going to spur stats smoke and haze a little bit more so and results in improving conditions skies are crystal clear overhead as the high pressure ridge builds and as that high pressure ridge
builds we're going to see some really warm temperatures in the days to come. today certainly are most comfortable day of memorial day weekend. but i'm talking some excess and he just around the corner potentially dangerous heat for many of us. still in your full forecast back to you guys. >>very good. thank you john what president trump is ordering the reopening of houses of worship which has health officials concerned that isn't the only thing they're worried about caitlin collins has more. >>in a new study shows that an antimalaria drug championed by president trump may harm coronavirus patients hydroxychloroquine the study is the largest analysis done today and it reveals the coronavirus patients who are seriously ill and given clerk when or hydroxy-chloroquine we're more likely to develop abnormal heart rhythms or even die this i think the fda has been very clear on their website about their concerns about. >>i dropped the clerk and trump has been taking the drug in hopes of preventing himself
from getting coronavirus despite a warning from the fda that it hasn't been proven to be safe or effective at treating the virus or preventing it. >>i really think it's a great thing to try but he have to lose. i really think they should take it hydroxy chloroquine. if things don't go planned it's not going to. kill anybody. >>trump didn't address the study today, but he did announce that the cdc will issue new guidance to declare in places of worship as essential. >>today, i'm. it then to find houses of worship. churches synagogues. and mosques. as essential places that provide essential services. >>trump says he wants church is in other places reopened immediately and claim hill overruled governors who pushed back. >>some governors have deemed a

>>put your hand one circle and he can't these are 2 big maybe to pay like a giant game of connect 4 somehow on the job for defeating the purpose. james is supposed to keep us apart. this is >>if this is what it takes to kind of keep everybody focus which it's tough to stay focused after after a couple months of this. then i'm all for it. >>baby show you ad mask on him, >>the circles are there just as a guide right now people will not be cited for not staying within the circle, however, the city still technically under a shelter-in-place order so everyone is expected to course maintain physical distancing and wear a mask if you're going to plus it's a social thing so it gives you you don't seem like jerky or weird if you go oh excuse me yes just persist and circle them how do you broach that and you know your this is my life over my line with social distance police how serious you got to you have to and they're probably going to be a lot of
people out enjoying parks this memorial day weekend john travel here with a look at the forecast and i guess the word to the wise is maybe get that outside fun in earlier rather than later icas early and heat things up yeah. >>yes, i would definitely agree with that come monday memorial day i know many of us probably have it out not going to change much for you because we're sheltering in place, but it is going to be hot and that's the biggest thing you're going to have to just 2 sites, a joy today as much as possible. get yourself prepared for the excessive heat just around the corner because it is going to be dangerous for many of our inland areas and even up to the coast where many of us still have it easy. it is going to be too warm and not comfortable at all you look outside from timber on out towards the coast still showing some of the haze that is sold out into the bay itself from the spire at pier 45 earlier this morning watch out for that if you are walking along the bay for your morning walk got notice that is. >>regardless of if you're in san francisco or knox it's just sunk right down right
