8:15 am
prompted some evacuations. we're zoomed in on this map showing you where that affected north of jacqueline drive south of west leeland road and west of san dream away. and here is video when it first broke out. you can see the glow of the flames and all that smoke last night. it appears that the firefighters got a good handle on pretty quickly, which is great. they stopped it from progressing. we got the word earlier this morning that all the evacuation orders have been lifted. people can get back into their homes now and that's a good thing because when you see all the fuel that can go up, you know how dry we are in a drought and how windy it was yesterday. you get scared that you said it was really windy your neighborhood. it was really blustery at times during the afternoon. some hoping that's going calm down a little bit today. yeah, you know, we're still seeing really strong wind they were stronger last night. i'm just telling people to enjoy this. >> because it's going to be hot next week a breeze for the wind coming next week. you're going to want that when to stick around. so. >> hopefully today you take advantage of that. all you need to do is bring a light jacket with you. you've got this. you celebrated the
8:16 am
warriors today. a live look outside of the city and you can see out in the distance, we do have a few clouds that when the james just mentioned, you're seeing it further inland along the east bay here in the city, especially nevada. you're getting some wind gusts as well. and our cooling you down throughout today and tomorrow, highs across the bay area significantly cooler today than what we saw at the start of the week monday and tuesday, especially look at this. if you're along the coast or along the bay, sure, you're seeing temperatures in the low 60's mid-sixties here south bay now moving down a little further along the peninsula, upper 60's in palo alto campbell, san jose, 70 69 also moving a little further inland. so no out of livermore. 68 70 hayward union city, all upper 60's. and then when you get to berkeley, richmond, oakland, all mid to lower 60's across the mat out in antioch, you're still in the 70's vacaville. 74 sandra fell 62 and a bottle. your in the mid 60's. all right. so
8:17 am
today, the cooldown, we like the temperatures today like i mentioned, just bring a jacket with you tomorrow. also still pretty cool and then sunday. so you've got father's day juneteenth. also the parade. things are going to start to warm up here next week. look at that tuesday wednesday, triple digit temperatures. so you definitely got to be missing friday and saturday as weather along the bay shore mid 60's to start you dip into the upper 70's come monday and cool throughout the week. low 60's mid to low 70's. hey daryn. james, i'm assuming if i had to traffic still pretty light right? >> looks that way the bay bridge approach. it's been pretty simple all morning long. as you can see, not a happening here. just taking a quick look at the traffic maps of area wide. it's all green. so there is nothing slowing it down. the san mateo bridge has been flowing just fine. no backups are really slowdowns at all. you're at the limit, even though the volume has picked up on the right side, heading out towards the peninsula, nothing getting in
8:18 am
your way. you're making good time. the richmond, sandra fell bridge. boy, this is a big improvement. it was backed up a little bit in our last few updates, but nothing more than usual. and here you can see it certainly has cleared out. and our final stop, the golden gate bridge. if you're going to be traveling southbound, looks like it's all open for you. the lanes reconfigured for the morning commute with the majority of them heading down into san francisco. the traffic heading up the marin county. as you can see streaming along, just fine. all right. at 8.18, we have some new information just in this morning. the fda has authorized the first covid-19 shots for infants and preschoolers, which will pave the way now for those vaccines to begin becoming available next week. so the fda's action follows its advisory panel's unanimous recommendation for the shots from moderna and pfizer. this means that kids under 5, which are roughly about 18 million children across the country are now eligible to get their vaccine. >> the abbott baby formula plant that reopened less than 2 weeks ago has now had to
8:19 am
stop production again because of severe storms. and that's caused flooding inside the plant. and this is amid the nationwide baby formula shortage was caused in the beginning when that plant in michigan to big supplier was shut down fo months because the found some bacteria and several area areas. the company said that the formula production now is likely going to be delayed for a few weeks. and we're still dealing with the shortage. the biden administration is flying. and 44,000 pounds of specialty formula from switzerland. and when it gets in the u.s., then that will supply primarily hospitals, home health companies and wic programs. at first getting the regular supply back on the shelves at retailers could still take weeks. the senate passed a health care measure to cover for millions of veterans with cancer and lung problems linked to burn pits. the house is also expected to pass this
8:20 am
next week. veterans advocates have long said that this is a problem burn pits used in summer, a toxic waste at overseas military facilities led to a range of health issues including cancer that killed president biden's son, beau biden both served in iraq, spending much of a year near a 10 acre burn pit. >> well, momentum around a bipartisan federal gun safety bill may now be running into a roadblock in capitol hill after initially promising to push forward a bipartisan plan this week. lawmakers still don't have a bill on the table now. raquel martin takes a closer look at what's happening. >> good morning. the republican and democratic senators who helped broker this original deal are still hoping to push it forward by next week. but the top gop negotiator, texas republican senator john cornyn says he's growing frustrated and concerned the 2 sides can't get past some key differences. the bipartisan gun safety plan designed to curb gun violence
8:21 am
across the country. >> has hit a snag on capitol hill. we don't know what the specifics are. thursday, texas republican senator ted cruz said the bipartisan group of senators who brokered a deal sunday have failed to introduce a real plan at this point. we have a one page talking points of bullet points. the framework includes new mental health and school safety investments will require anyone. 21 and under to undergo a more stringent review process before purchasing a gun includes more money to help states adopt red flag laws which allows family members to petition a judge and how the guns of someone dewmed a danger temporarily removed for republicans like cruz in missouri. senator josh hawley. that's a deal breaker. i've got major problems. >> with most all of the red flag laws across the country, red flag laws can be used to disarm law-abiding citizens. in the end, only 10 republicans are needed to pass the plan in the senate. >> and democrats remain
8:22 am
optimistic. continued confidence lead democratic negotiator chris murphy says that he believes the 2 sides can agree on a text by next week. all we have to do is write checks. that is true to the framework thursday speaker nancy pelosi is that the house is ready to act once the senate finishes the bill granting pair fully. >> lawmakers at the negotiating table say they've been able to forge a path forward when it comes to the red flag. law provision. but the real sticking point remains a provision to close the so-called boyfriend loophole, which which banned domestic partners convicted of abuse from purchasing guns. for now in washington, raquel martin, back to you. >> thank you. kelly is a 22 coming up on the kron 4 morning news. we're learning that former president trump pressured vice president mike pence to overturn the results of the election even after rioters stormed the capital will have that and more coming up.
