8:01 pm
>> what this independent advisory committee recommends and that committee did convene virtually this morning hearing directly from pfizer, senior vice president of pfizer's clinical research and development team doctor bill gruber argued that a 3rd booster shot is needed for everyone who's currently eligible, but other health officials said while it's true vaccine efficacy has dropped in the last few months. it's not exactly clear why. >> the full duration of protection of the pfizer biontech vaccine is currently unknown. the reason for the lower affected meant likely include both waiting over time. >> and the delta variant. if the fbi can not assure us of the plate in 2 how can make sure current. >> so the advisory panel rejected a booster endorsement for everyone. citing a lack of safety data on extra doses. instead, the panel endorsed extra shots. a 3rd shot for people 65 and older those at
8:02 pm
serious risk of serious disease as well as health workers frontline workers and anyone runs a high risk of being exposed to covid on the job. people like teachers. so these are nonbinding recommendations today. not the last word on the matter again, the fda, we'll consider this advisory group's recommendations and then make its own decision probably within days, probably next week and the cdc is also set to weigh in next week. so we'll have to see what happens there live in the studio. i'm grant lotus kron 4 news. thank you. grant. well, this decision does hit the biden administration plans hard. the white house continues to push for a booster shot for all people allowed to get vaccinated. right now. we talked with our local panel of medical experts about the recommendation by the fda committee kron four's. terisa stasio live for us in the newsroom to continue our team coverage ken and pam, experts

8:04 pm
very different from the united states is much smaller is months. >> much. ines may not be generalized. let us situation. both doctors working in the field strongly point out this decision does not mean boosters won't happen for those under 65 rather just now giving priority to those at the highest risk saying this. it's not saying that the fda put a on having booths are from all populations. it's just that it's not an emergency for everyone. yes. so if you're listening. >> to are reading about the fda's advisory committee's decision. i think the way you need to think about this is that it's the reason why these experts really struggle with the question was that we've got really good vaccines and they're really working quite well. >> this is only about pfizer vaccines moderna and j j still waiting to collect their information and submit their data to the fda committee. up

8:34 pm
refinery on fire. but it's not clear if the earthquake has anything to do with it. but they're certainly at least some flaring that is going on there. this is a chopper looking at the scene in carson. that rather industrial area south of downtown los angeles. so again, a 4.2 magnitude earthquake in carson. that's enough to get people's attention and maybe cause some minor damage property damage but not really big enough to cause a significant injuries in something. something unusual happened with something. heavy falling. look at right there on the lower left-hand side of your screen. that doesn't look like your typical flaring. that looks like something more than that. so we're working to get more information on what's going on at this oil refinery in carson. and lawrence is here now he's also looking into what's going on with this of quick yet considered a minor quake. but i mean, if you are right there at the epicenter. i mean, 4.2 is you'll feel a huge danger. fairly shallow quake. >> that happened. you can see it's a right here in very latest map here. see all around the area. you've got numerous earthquakes throughout that active part of
8:35 pm
southern california. the very latest, though, in red here. this near carson. and you can see the depth on only 7 miles. so that's a pretty shallow quake that means lot of that energy. from terror in that fall system will reach the surface at full force. and that means and the in there's going to experience some pretty significant shaking. and that's exactly what we've seen happen in that area. of course, you've got redondo beach nearby got marina. del rey, long beach, all those areas certainly probably fell that earthquake as it should just about one half hour ago. all right. here in the bay area. we've got changes coming our way this weekend. of course, we've talked about the rain. now we're worried about this the possibility of fire danger on the increase is we're going to see some strong, gusty winds developing across the mountain tops in the tuesday, some of those gusts, maybe 40, maybe 50 miles per hour. let's enjoy the rain. hope it's a real good soaker. so we don't have to worry about the fires. guys, back to you.

8:43 pm
our breaking news out of southern california right now. that 4.2 magnitude earthquake that hit east southeast of the city of carson. you're looking at an oil refinery in the area. in fact, there are a number of refineries in that area. and we've been seeing flames and flaring. we've been checking with our in southern california. apparently this is a standard procedure after an earthquake. we're still working to get additional information, though, as you can imagine, this happened just over half just over half an hour ago and authorities are still gathering information. we don't have any word of injuries or major concerns of being damaged at this point. but still 4.2 can be serious as lawrence mentioned, if you are right near the epicenter. well, especially when you're in a county you know, 10 million plus people in southern california in the earthquake happens right on your feet and her hand at oil refinery. but we want to point out we just got this from our sister
8:44 pm
station in los angeles ktla. >> and this is from la county fire department saying and we're talking about specifically these flames that you're looking at at the marathon oil refinery in the city of carson. according to la county fire says this flame that you're seeing is normal procedure after an earthquake units arrived on the scene and were turned around by the fire department at the oil refinery. so there indicating this is not a serious situation. it's not as if the oil refinery itself is on fire, but they do have normal burn off, son and flares coming when there's high pressure building up things like that. so that is apparently what is going on even though does look rather unusual. we understand that this earthquake was felt as far away as marino valley in the inland empire in riverside county. that's about and 6080 miles east of los angeles but other parts of the la basin say they didn't feel it. if
8:45 pm
you're not familiar with exact where carson is right off the 4 o 5 freeway there in the area of long beach and redondo beach. >> lawrence was telling us earlier. also this was a shallow quake 7 miles and death. and generally you do feel more shaking when an earthquake is shallow, of course, because, you know, obvious for obvious reasons. so 4.2 might even feel stronger. i want wake this shallow angelenos are of course, are just like us are very familiar with get rather routinely. they haven't had a major earthquake in quite some time >> probably the northridge quake, which of course caused extensive damage and and even some fatalities. this is not that kind of situation. but any time there's an earthquake that you can feel it gets your attention yeah. especially where an earthquake country. so we know that. so again. >> when this is not we're not getting a reports of anything serious happening. right now. we are keeping an eye on developments in southern
8:46 pm
california. again, this is an area with a lot of oil refinery. so that creates another layer of concern for the people who are in that area at this point, there are no reports of major damage associated with this quake. a 4.2, just east of carson, california. we'll keep an eye on it and bring you more after the break.
8:47 pm
8:48 pm
>> and now kron 4 sports from
