location. yes, very dry very smoky. but the good news is i did not see any lightning strikes that's the fear in the overnight hours the dried lightning, not accompanied by any rain and we do know that this fire just like many other fires were started because of lightning strikes that took place 8 days ago. now this fire not only has it turned deadly. it has been very destructive a destructive of course it has burned through big basin redwoods state just race through there as firefighters are scrambling to try to save lives and try to save homes, but it went pretty much unimpeded for a while because it was in such a ragged hard to reach area that their biggest concern mardy and robin as you know their first priority whenever the attack of fire. it's to save lives and unfortunately this state as hard as they try they could not say that state park in santa cruz county. it is also ripped through many residential areas, many people
have been told to evacuate. others have been told to get ready to evacuate the latest numbers only 8% containment. it's so it's not even double digits at this point hopefully that will go up and we get an update in about 15 minutes from now we do know that at least 3 people are unaccounted for and a handful of people have been injured fortunately we're not hearing of any major injuries, however, 2 firefighters keep it here. once a news conference begins at 6 o'clock he will carry that live for you back to you. >>and we've had reports of some some light showers or sprinkles around the area. do you notice or have you seen any rain where you are as the ground wet. >>no rain at this time actually it's a little bit humid at this time i was looking up at the sky because i know that dry lightning was a major concern and i was going through the santa cruz mountains and i did not see any lightning strikes. no rain whatsoever but very smoky
conditions. i think this is reminiscent and i covered the fire 3 years ago in santa rosa. that's breathing conditions very reminiscent of that horrible fire that we saw 3 years ago marty all right, thanks a lot. we'll that's will trend. >>from the south bay this morning. now let's continue our team coverage on the lnu complex fires burning now in the north bay. >>take a look at this map that shows where the complex of fires are burning in sonoma napa and solano counties it's outlined in red on your screen. so far at least 4 people have been killed in those fires for others have been injured. kron 4 sarah stinson reporting live for us near healdsburg where the fire is now threatening homes, sarah. >>yeah i live in sonoma county where firefighters have been working all weekend long to try and contain the wall bridge fire and they are working hard, but it's still only 5% contained. take a look at video from yesterday you can see sort of the strategy that firefighters are taking
their fighting fire with fire and they are back burning to make sure that it doesn't continue burning towards the nearby communities such as winds are healdsburg. >>you know santa rosa calistoga so many communities in this area that have been you know. threatened by this fire that is why there's been a lot of evacuation orders a lot of evacuation warnings and the weather forecast through tomorrow. >>has caused some concern for cal fire they said it's calling for dry lightning and thunderstorms that could cause erratic winds extreme fire behavior within the existing fires putting in different directions and it could it has have potential to start new fires so that is they're really on high alert they're fighting it rapidly trying to get it to stop and make sure they have it under control in case things do erratic in crazy now we did catch up with a person who was evacuated at the evacuation center in and
they said they're glad they got out when they did. >>i stayed a couple extra days i floated much truck with all my tools and everything and waited a little bit and then it's are coming over the hill, the house going to so and to go you know, i feel really bad for the people that have lost homes and you know we're going to go back and there's places going to be there so it is hard enough like this, but if you go there's all your stuff in your house. the environment right now. and my opinion you know it's. and needs we've taken care of better. >>it's very true. some people will go home to no home at all it is devastating to see we know in the entire l a new lightning complex 871 structures have been destroyed in right now about 30,500 structures are threatened because this fire is burning in a very remote area. i mean that's kind of a benefit but the problem is when it burns
towards the non remote areas, the communities nearby and that's what they've been trying to avoid but as we saw on friday when it just burns southeast and rips through a neighborhood there near healdsburg that can happens that's what they're trying to avoid stay tune. this morning obviously it's dark out right now we're hoping to get a good view of this firefight in see where they're at and this morning for now live in sonoma county sarah stinson kron 4 news. >>all right sir, thanks a lot for that live report we'll be checking in with sarah throughout the morning. now a wildfire coverage continues in the east and south bay's. take a look at the map on your screen that's outlined in red it shows where the scu lightning complex fires are burning now in alameda contra costa santa clara. and san joaquin counties. flames from those fires have burned more than 343,000 acres just 10% containment this morning, 4 people have been hurt in those fires and fry 5 structures destroyed. all told more than 20,000 other structures are
being threatened. kron four's dan thorn has the latest. >>thousands have been forced to evacuate their homes in the eastern area of morgan hill fire continues to burn in the area of henry coe state park threatening several communities we saw lines of cars racing up to him coming back from their homes and jackson oaks holiday lake estates and along thomas grade people understandably on edge cars and trucks loaded up with anything people could grab. evacuation orders were issued because of a change in weather including wind which had helped the fire spread or send embers into these areas most of these homes are in hilly rural terrain. firefighters right now fighting the fire just east of these communities at 5 o'clock on sunday police were forced to close the road along east dunn avenue and we're turning people away from going up because of potential danger city officials saying staying behind is not worth the risk. >>as we look at what's happened in some of the other areas here in our state the past few years. want to take a chance.
>>many of the evacuees worried about leaving their homes concerned that once they come back there might not be a house there anymore. >>a tactic. we are facing try to pack up all the pictures and stuff like that. yeah we've got to we've got to get going up their living in california. >>you know experiencing wildfires is certainly a obviously up where we live. they're in the hills police have continued to block residents from going back up into these areas, not only for their safety but to prevent other people from going up and stealing evacuees are being told to go to and some high school where there are resources available to people there and also to follow online at morgan hills city government website where there will be more information on other orders and other warnings reporting in morgan hill dan thorn kron 4 news. >>we have an interactive map on our website just head over to kron 4 dot com and actually shows all of the fires that are actively burning and the location of all of the
evacuation centers, it's very helpful. we also have a list of up to date evacuation orders and warnings on our website just head over to kron 4 dot com. >>and we continue to follow breaking news, the fires that are burning out of control across the bay area this morning. those fires of course having a major impact on air quality here that's going to show you of just how bad the air quality is through this map. now the darker the color, the worse the air quality and the worst air right now is in the east bay, especially in the tri valley area want to go ahead and get a check on the air quality would days far in the weather center day we had a little bit sprinkles over the over the overnight hours. that's going to help a little bit i would guess a well yeah and it would and if i'm right now we can't deal with winds winds would also clear it out to i think it's going to be more of a gradual pattern is what it looks like in terms of this. >>one thing we can say is we've had some light rain showers across the region overnight that didn't come with lightning. so that's the good type of rain to get and certainly could use the rain.
what it appears like going forward is we're not going to get much more in the way of rain in fact the skies opening up. and that may provide instability going on upstairs to drive some dry lightning because the rain when ever reach the ground. here's the latest we have going on in stormtracker for a couple of lines you'll notice that the sonoma county. another batch will be here to a napa county it looks like that's going to be the focal point of anything that goes on will be large in the north bay. a little bit in portions of the east than peninsula, but it's going to be those points north is where most of the action today will be and certainly with the rain. that's been going on last night that's what's lingering as we speak. do still have the red flag warning that's in place it covers the entire bay with the exception of solano county. again without possibility of dry lightning and again those skies should open up. pretty quickly going on into this a late morning live shot for the golden gate bridge. this is the kind of moisture we really could use that the surface. it's not penetrating very far inland however, yet tomorrow
probably will and that's going to help kind of settle things down a little bit better once we get rid of some of this tropical air that a lot because that tends to drive the atmosphere make it crazy that 71 going on at 09:00am by high new word, 86, we'll cover your forecast coming up in just a little bit marty all right dave thanks a lot. >>well, still ahead another police shooting leads to violent protests overnight. we'll show you what led up to that shooting that's coming up after the break. and as we head to break we're taking a look at the damage caused by the czu lightning complex fire in santa cruz and san mateo counties oh look at these photos they're just a heartbreaking this from boulder creek. so many homes reduced to rubble and ash as that fire continues to spread this morning.
so when a hand specialist told me about nonsurgical treatments, it was a total game changer. like you, my hands have a lot more to do. learn more at factsonhand.com today. >>welcome back everyone out to a big national story that we're following for you this morning outrage and protests in wisconsin. after an unarmed black man was shot by police 7 times in the back the shooting was captured on video but we must warn you. the video may be upsetting to some viewers. this happened yesterday and kenosha wisconsin, which is about 40 miles south of milwaukee. police responding to a domestic incident at a
home the victim 29 year-old jacob lake he's in serious condition at the hospital this milwaukee. and here is video of the that erupted overnight near the scene of the police shooting. police clash with protesters who are denouncing the police and police brutality. state officials are now investigating the shooting. >>and it's the republicans turn to make their case for the trump pence ticket the republican national convention gets underway tonight in a scaled down fashion karin caifa is in washington where most of the activity will take place this week. >>preparations at the white house for the convention spotlight, including the newly renovated rose garden where first lady melania trump will speak tuesday. and the south lawn where president trump will give his acceptance speech thursday offering a rebuttal to the democrats last week i think you're going to see a very hopeful. >>version for a vision for america that he's going to be unleashing you're going to see a real diversity, the republican party that he's built a president trump has been very involved in a fast
evolution of our nc programming over the last few weeks. >>since he announced in late july he would not travel to jacksonville florida for a speech. he said to want more live programming and fewer taped segments than the democrats and a greater focus on everyday americans democrats during their convention blasted the trump administration's handling of the coronavirus pandemic he's failed to protect america. the trump campaign characterized the dnc is dark and republicans say they'll cast trump's pandemic response very differently that is something that many americans most americans and many voters will be concerned about. >>and the president has been leading the nation in this effort and americans can see that president trump is expected to make an appearance every night of the convention. >>in washington, i'm karin caifa. >>and in newly released audio president trump sisters reportedly heard calling him cruel and phony. she also accuses him of line. the president's niece mary trump claims to have secretly recorded her aunt, maryanne trump barry in 2018 2019
washington post first obtained the transcripts and the audio from mary trump who recently released a book that criticizes the president barry's more critical comments focus on how her brother has operated as president. >>good good he really it changed his story is a lack of preparation. the only. >>well barry is a retired federal appellate judge who has never spoken out publicly about disagreements with her brother the president. but the audio seems to tell a different story mary trump has made it clear from her book and the release of this audio that she's had major differences with her uncle president donald trump white house issued a statement on saturday night saying that while not everyone agrees with the president. he does continue to work hard for the american people. >>white house adviser kellyanne conway is saying goodbye to the trump administration conway says she'll be leaving her post at
the end of the month citing family as a reason for her departure. her husband george conway who works for an anti trump republican group called the lincoln project, we'll also be leaving his position. kellyanne conway is scheduled to speak of this week's republican national convention. but it's unclear if that's still on the agenda. well let's get an update on today's forecast we have some wet weather in store, let's check in with dave ward see how it's shaping up days robin good morning, good morning. everybody we jumped quickly to the radar here we have the set so that if we start seeing lightning strikes will see it up here. >>right now again that's been quiet that's good we're getting some rain up we'll take that as well. >>there you see where the latest bands are basically north of marion county, little batch of air to sonoma county also in napa county little bit of collection around the label looks like as well for the start and coupled with this at the surface we're getting a little bit of that marine layer i e e fog which looks like it's starting to clear out a little bit from this vantage point it looks like that fog will take care of
itself fairly quickly it's not as intense. as what we're going to see tomorrow. so that's not good. that's another reason for the concern with the marine layer evaporated quickly, no delays at sfo by the way temperatures holding in the 60's for now 74, antioch 67 meanwhile for san jose. now as we watch this and future cast for not a whole lot happens it kind of clears out pretty quickly but that just provides the sun to come out to provide energy to spark a potentially an isolated dry lightning thunderstorm that being the fact of that we have so much dry air at the surface any rain we get would evaporate during the day and we're just left with lightning speed a lot of dynamics upstairs that still possible overnight this marine layer comes back better and stronger and that will cover more territory spill into the inland valleys looks like by tomorrow and even by the afternoon tomorrow, it looks like our humidity levels will be increasing let's watch this as we go into motion. we have a little bit that recovery overnight gives us that marine layer up against the east bay hills and during the day today short dries off
a little bit for standing with numbers in the 30's in the 40's, not too bad on that front and that means also with sunshine too. this is what happens tomorrow morning more aggressive what the fog you can see by tomorrow afternoon now we're looking at 50's even some 60's so at the surface conditions are becoming more moist that's the direction we like to see. so for the low down today again we got the concern of some isolated thunder showers working their and perhaps a pop up isolated dry lightning events this afternoon again isolated then for this week pretty much the status quo event nothing really moves the weather patterns. so we'll see temperatures a little bit warmer than they are for this time of year with 80's and 90's pretty much covering us and more of the same expected as we head on to the weekend remaining dry too it looks like let's keep some clouds in there just for good measure, 73 for san francisco 78 for oakland, 88 san jose still looking at middle 90's in the far east bay up to the north bay most readings in the 80's 88 law for san jose. check and bay area roadways robin
phillips and what's happening there. hey folks need to slow their roll this morning on the slick roads around the bay area take it easy reduced or speed, especially on the on and off ramps. >>traffic heading into san francisco looking good moving well we are trouble free, hopefully it'll stay that way for you. this morning heading into san francisco. but if you're an early riser and early commuter come on in it's under 10 minutes from the bottom of the maze across the upper deck and over to fremont street, here's 92. it gets the award for the busiest bridge right now the crowding already starting here west of the toll plaza, it's mainly on the flat section is not going to be this crowded all the way across but we're good less than 30 minutes from the minutes to the bayshore martin ok robin thanks a lot coming up next on the kron 00:04am morning news, the postmaster general be testifying in again in front of the house committee. >>to answer questions about the changes to the post office that could impact

ahead of the 2020 election. it is a little bit disturbing to see the u.s. we touted as like a perfect democracy when this is happening critics of the joy and ally and supporter of president trump say these changes will hinder mail in voting. neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night. >>stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds. but of course no one foresaw that any american president would willingly crowbar mail system to sway an election on saturday. the u.s. postal service got a vote of support from the house of representatives the yeas are 257. and the nays are a 150. the bill is passed. the bill would give the agency 25 billion dollars in reverse the actions that slow down mail delivery until the pandemic is over. >>however the usps released a statement sunday night saying parts of the bill while well-meaning will constrain the ability of the posial service to make operational changes that will improve efficiency reduce costs and

in front of a fire station went to the front lines and that firefighter had his car broken into his wallet, stolen and information from his wallet was used by the people who broke into his car to drain his bank account so lots going on firefighters they are throwing as much as they possibly can at this fire given the amount of resources that they can possibly take there's so many other fires going on that moving forward the firefighters say they're battling 2 fronts this time one obviously is the fire. 2 is can we get more firefighters to be thrown at us. the good news is all the firefighters are already and they're maxed out marty robin that all the firefighters on the front line and they should there be a lightning strike on like what we saw 8 days ago, those firefighters are ready to go and pounce on that fire. back to you all right well, thanks a lot for that live report we'll continue to check in with well throughout the morning, robin. >>and moving in certain fire zones of such a big problem

provide the atmosphere more energy once the sun joins us potentially a spark off some isolated dry lightning events there there we have 60's around the perimeter of the bay 70 far inland for antioch it looks like breaking the day down for you. it says sunny for all of this of course will be smoky skies and there is that isolated collection of clouds we can get tickets, sometimes the higher elevations, a little because you get some up sloping going on there and you might have an isolated dry thunder shower their work takes just a few strikes and boom you have problems an outflow winds. we have to watch for to marty all right dave. thank you we're going to to a break but first we want to show you. >>a camera just shows just the smoky haze that so many of us have been dealing with this is the smoke from the north fires that going on in the north bay our coverage continues right after the break.

to sonoma county just north of moran and that's where the focal point of the year for most of the action the thinking thinking process will be up in the north a little bit off to the east bay and peninsula but points to the north is well we'll be watching for activity today live shot from sfo and no delays happening there. we did have some of that fog come back this morning. not quite the intensity though the we're going to see for tomorrow and that will be penetrating further inland, it looks like to throw some more moisture our way as we watch this into motion. it looks like the skies really open up for this afternoon. but again that's just daytime heating that could spark off again some dry lightning thunder showers there. we have the recovery. the marine layer for tomorrow morning and will moisten up some of those inland spots, it looks like into the afternoon tomorrow highs today, one '04 going on for fresno 99 for sacramento, one of 3 for bakersfield. bay area numbers will be double the double digits, definitely 73 going on for san francisco 79 for l a x and 86 meanwhile for san diego checking out of some forecast to get 73, san francisco, daly
