6:05 pm
tells us about the evacuation drill that is planned for this weekend. it's a sign of the times throughout northern california, and it's certainly true for mill valley. the question is, what should residents do it for fire threatened this community of hillside homes with two way streets, some as narrow as 10 ft across so that as soon as someone stops or tries to go the other way, it's a traffic jam. these streets were. built around the turn of the century, when we still had horses and buggies or small cars, and since that time we've remodeled homes to be much larger. our latest theory right now is that we have two main roads in town. and both of those will be jammed up. that is why the mill valley mayor and other city officials are conducting experiments saturday, mill valley is teamed up with google researchers to organise an evacuation drill aimed at improving the evacuation response here. the drill will involve some 250 residents lining up on east blight dale avenue to create gridlock. then
6:06 pm
time how long it takes to clear the area by directing cars to nearby parking areas away from any fire zones. the theory is that by clearing the flatland area quickly, cars continuing to come down from the hills won't hit choke points that can be fatal. we've seen that that chaos on the roadway during other disasters within our community within the state of california within the oakland hills. within the city of santa rosa and the tubbs fire, google will be using its research and technology to help mill valley with its evacuation plan. what we're going to do is run that process. with a drill with real cars on saturday, time in and see how it works. and then compare that to, uh, give that information to google so they can run their own scenarios. to help us decide whether this is a really good idea. i think it's a great idea. i wish we did it every other month. mill valley is looking for more people to participate in the drill on saturday, people can sign up online by going to ktvu .com and clicking on the link. in mill valley. rob roth, ktvu fox two news. new information

windy weather in the north bay hills and the east bay hills and valleys are creating dangerous wildfire conditions. fire departments in those areas are on high alert. the red flag warning went into effect last night at 11 and is due to expire at eight o'clock tonight. in the last hour pga announced the all clear for public safety power. shutoffs crews are now in the process of restoring power to the few 100 customers whose power was cut off in napa and solano counties. power is also being
6:14 pm
restored to the other northern california counties, where power lines were de energized all because of those red flag warning conditions. p genie is upgraded sensors designed to tell more quickly when a power line has been compromised or might start a fire. but ktvu is tom vacar tells us that technology is setting off some false alarms resulting in unnecessary shutoffs. of some 25,000 miles of power lines that deliver your energy p genie has determined the 10,000 miles are in the highest of high fire threat zones on those lines p genie has strategically placed automatic sensors. that will shut off if. the line shorts out. if something were to touch the line, it shuts off automatically, and it doesn't provide a spark. it prevents a wildfire. lightning animal contact a branch leaning against the power line or a complete break from a falling tree or limb will cause the sensors to automatically decided the line should be de energized. to provide maximum
6:15 pm
safety. they have tweaked those sensors increase the sensitivity, basically, so if there's a fault detected on the line, it shuts off faster and more often in recent weeks, this fast trip technology has caused at least five outages in the foothills and mountains between fresno and like tahoe. there have also been such outages. in west sonoma and marin, as well as half moon bay and santa cruz that has caused some complaints. one of pg knees, goals is to essentially fine tune and adjust the sensitivity of each fast trip circuit breaker to make sure the actual fire risk in its area is matched. and so we're readjusting them every calibrating them. so they're not so frequent. but they are longer duration outages because these are high fire threat areas once tripped, the line cannot be re energized until pg and e crews have a close. look at the line. we are beefing up the patrols to restore power
6:16 pm
and more quickly to finish those patrols. faster move more boots on the ground. this is very crucial now because we've entered the time. of the ferocious winds. the diablo winds the santa ana winds, which blood high speed, very often pushing fires far, far out of control. tom vacar ktvu, fox two news. tom is right. that's the time of year. when we get those weather systems have come through the winds turn off shore like they did last night. last night was a pretty calm event. relatively speaking. like i said last night, right, you have red flag warnings, but there's a spectrum of them. there's a texture to each one, and this was a. kind of low on the spectrum in terms of danger, but it's still red flag warning. it's so dangerous. it just didn't encompass the whole bay area, and it was mainly higher and was mainly in the north bay and the winds really below 1000 ft were almost not non existent, but pretty light. well, that's and that's good. so tomorrow, the red flag warning has gone. it's going to be gone the next couple hours, actually. but these are the highs from today and tomorrow is going to follow suit. with these numbers coming up today's temperature's warmed. some
6:17 pm
places like 10 degrees, so tomorrow you're going to see temperatures warm again another five degrees or so. so temperatures coming back up as you look at the 91 conquer the 86 in vallejo, those will turn into. conquered by turned to a 94. vallejo probably turn to an 88 something like that. and it is false, you know, so you can really feel it out there now, um, got my geography all lined up for you guys. there's outlets peak, which i messed up last week, and that's up around the napa valley. and i'm pretty sure. gonna get in trouble on this one. i think that's mount bacca. is that right? that alice, i think that's not back over there. um, just outside the back of ill, so beautiful night. no fog at the coast. that's when i look at that picture, right? and that's one of the things when you look at that picture, you go it's fall right. it's fall. where's the fog? the texture of the surface of the ocean or the bay. you see how it's some areas are, uh, texture and some areas of flat glass. it tells you the wind direction. typically the flat glass area is being blocked by
6:18 pm
the north wind is being blocked by the hills up behind up by sandra fell there and so you're getting glass out on tiburon bay and. and richardson bay and on at the golden gate bridge. the winds are blowing out through the bridge right now. so you got an offshore wind? um, what we got here, huh? criminal trouble my computer day, but i'm good. okay their quality looks good, right? lots of greens. we will see our quality. um, tomorrow a road next couple. they just a little bit. those fires in norcal definitely. you know, god put out, not put out but got stunted. and so the smoke didn't didn't, uh, isn't getting in our position, but there's a fire in southern california down by the big trees that those easterly winds some southeast is going to draw some smoked back in this area. it is a spare the air day tomorrow i'll see you back here with that. bill, thank you. facebook and ray ban had rolled out their new smart glasses. ray ban stories, and already there are concerns that those glasses are a threat to personal privacy and security. they look like regular sunglasses, but they allow

6:34 pm
have the first classroom here, right? we use nature as a teacher and as our classroom and so we're like, why can't we do this year round and then we did wise founded bog city explorers in the middle of the pandemic catering to some of the youngest students prekindergarten, transitional kindergarten and kindergarteners. as public schools were shutting down are going virtual. weiss was providing an alternative for her daughter and more than a dozen other students. with the pandemic hit. it just seemed like a good time to have. to open this up and start and it's been incredible. and i've learned so much this year. i think the kids have really grown immensely. there's been plenty of anecdotal reports of families leaving san francisco's public schools, some choosing to leave the city, others choosing private or parochial options. many parents in the district, expressing frustration with the district over how long it took to develop and implement a reopening plan. now san francisco schools are confirming that enrollment has
6:35 pm
dropped about 5% since the end of the 2019 2020 school year. city explorers has saved my ear families that enrolled, say the outdoor environment and ability for children to socialize during the pandemic, helped them to decide to enroll their children in fog city explorers. instead of san francisco unified we went through the lottery. we got into our a. and then on the first day of school decided we weren't going to do it because we didn't want to give him a virtual kindergarten experience. what are you working on its strong why says socializing and problem solving are just part of what her program offers. while it may look different than a regular classroom, why says these children are building a strong academic foundation of a wagon with supplies? books art supplies? um compass is depending on what the curriculum is for the weak the month. are depends on supplies that will bring with us to school. and so we have reading. we use white boards for doing sight words and for practicing writing. we have journals and each child comes to school. we.
6:36 pm
offer pencils, glues, scissors, any kind of like tools that you would find in a classroom we provide for them. some parents say they still value the city's public schools and many say, as their children aged out of fog city explorers. they will return to san francisco unified schools, and we will be sending our son to kindergarten this fall, and we got into creative arts. so we're excited about that. but this has been an amazing gift for us this year. why says even with traditional schools now reopened and kids back in public school, she will continue to offer fog city explorers as an outdoor alternative. honestly i don't think i can never go back into a traditional classroom again. if there's this is taught me anything, it's that, you know. outside is where kids learn best fog. city explorers is looking to expand its program with more children and more educators. and while it is a private school with tuition, they're looking to set up a tuition assistance program so that it can be offered to a broader range of families. in san francisco. christien kafton ktvu, fox two news. the

lost to mother nature. charred bark and down. trees abound. but there are also signs of a rematch that's already underway. coast redwoods are remarkably resilient. they're engineered to come back after catastrophe. and fire is just one of the catastrophes that they've seen. state parks, senior environmental scientist joanne kebabs says these trees are akin to nature skyscrapers, some stretching as high as 300 ft and have been in northern california for millions of years. ocean moisture and fog produced perfect conditions for these trees to live. she points to patches of rebirth nestled next to sections nearly burned from existence as an indication life has and continues returning to this forest there, one of the very few conifers that have the ability to re sprout. they can re sprout from but dormant buds along the trunks and out in their branches. epic comic sprouting is taking place on much of the bark and many tree limbs. new tops. two trees can also grow
6:47 pm
as well as entirely new trees, as long as damage at the base isn't too severe, a little more than a year ago, the ccu lightning complex fire burned parts of santa cruz in san matteo counties, including most of this 18,000 acre park. but the path to rebirth and regrowth started almost immediately with indications the forest will partially replace what's been lost in the next century. the knp fire is threatening to completely destroy california's renowned sequoia national forest, but the route to return to normal will be different for these trees. what the giants request can't do is re sprout. not all of the trees in this forest coastal redwoods about 20 to 30% are douglas firs. this one is estimated to be between two and 300 years old and as you can see, it was destroyed last year by fire. have a douglas fir faces a similar hurdle, as do the giant sequoias. they don't re sprout that rely on seeds to produce new trees. so this is one of the seedlings coming up. and already this is
6:48 pm
what that's about eight inches talk. carol oh, yes, contractors will soon complete removal of tens of thousands of hazard trees littering the forest floor. that work clears the way for a reimagined big basin that is slowly but surely showing signs it will one day be woods filled with green, not charged trunks and limbs. redwood trees are survivors, always green or always living on assignment in big basin redwoods state park, jesse gary ktvu, fox two news. okay hope you had a nice day. temperatures warmed up beautiful fall day throughout the bay area. the temperatures today warmer than yesterday by a good five degrees or so. so we saw some low nineties 93 90 ac 93 in fairfield. those are the hot spots. temperatures tomorrow. we're going to get warmer i think those inland spots are gonna go into the mid nineties. probably beautiful shot outside what's missing in this picture? well, it's not really because it's september and the equinox is wednesday
6:49 pm
but was missing his fog, obviously, and you see a little bit of haze out there as well. i think. good air quality as we pointed out earlier, but i suspect that we're going to see a little bit of smoke from some of those fires start to filter back into the bay area is that easterly wind continues tomorrow. it's not a red flag warning, but the flow is an offshore flow essentially. so it's going to anything on the land, and he smoked that's left over even down around the sequoias down central southern california. um we're going to see it or we could see it again. it's not gonna be as intense because so much of that smoke. was coming from the trinity alps area and far northern california in northeastern oregon and dig up they got a lot of rain this i mean this area here all the way down into northern california. they got legit rain like couple inches of rain, which is enough. to really doesn't. i don't know if it puts the fire season away. what it helps a bunch and it certainly puts smoke down and gets containment on those fires. dixie fire got a big help from, um, from this particular when antelope fire got some big help as well from the rain 14 degrees warmer napa. that's the trend. it's warming up their sinking. fog is not
6:50 pm
going to form but we are going to see temperatures warming is that air sinks the offshore flow keeps the fog away and we find temperatures tomorrow that looked like these and they're going to be. nineties low nineties mid nineties super nice day, even at the coach, you're going to see seventies, most likely, so it's going to be pretty good that way to 89 in vallejo. these are the forecast highs for tomorrow. yeah yeah, that looks good. 97 fairfield, and then it cools off after that. it's amazing to me all these years in the bay area. how. when it decides to become fall, it becomes fall, right? and obviously it's sun angle and length of day and what have you but it is always just like today and yesterday. oh, yeah, it's fall. okay, i'll see you all back here tonight. 10 11. we'll see them. bill. thanks the quest for the west coming right down to the wire sports director market. bonnie's is up next with what one of the giant star players is saying about

6:53 pm
a leader in the prevention, you, you know, ordinarily you win 97 games and you still have 12 left. you are on a smooth cruise and just about any major league season two at the very least, the division title, but as you know, by now, this is no
6:54 pm
ordinary season. the giants at first place by the skin of their teeth, the dodgers right on their tails, if you're not following it that closely he need to know the giants and the dodgers are off tonight giants in san diego for the start with three game series tomorrow night against the padres dodgers in colorado for a little rocky mountain high three games there. final couple of weeks. i think kris bryant of the giants just sums it up perfectly. i feel like we've been playing great baseball, you know, going on a win streak, you know, um, but they've just been matching us and that's annoying. it's annoying that both you know, both of us are playing good at the same time. you know, we just got to keep our head down and try our best not to scoreboard watch, just focus on winning our ball games and just rely on the experience of everybody in this clubhouse to get us through the rest of the season, hopefully on the top of the vision. you know
6:55 pm
they're all watching the scoreboard. no doubt about that. anybody who says different? it's not telling you the truth. hey frank. remember when you and i were growing up right? thinks major league catcher best in the business. got to be johnny bench, right? he was the guy top of the line. well one of his hallowed records broken today. this afternoon as salvador perez of the kansas city royals smashes one of his records with his 46th home run of the year. johnny bench back in 1970 of the all time record most homers by a catcher in a single season. johnny has 45 1970. that is also tightened salvador perez for the major league home run leaving this year 51 year record broken today, johnny bench some other day, alright football. it's just almost hard to believe it's just hard to comprehend what's going on with the 40 niners with regard to these
6:56 pm
injuries, another running back. joining the injured list today. john michael michael hasty was really getting a taste of some action. you know, raheem mostert is up for the year. jeff wilson probably won't be back till mid season. here's the look at the play of the fourth quarter, he fumbled and you can watch it really twisted his left ankle. that's a high ankle sprain, and then he gets drilled in the nfl. that is really rough sledding right there, and he'll be out for quite some time and then trace sermons, their top running back choice out of ohio state. first nfl carry. welcome to the league just gets blown up, fumbled the ball. they called it a penalty against philadelphia. he suffers a concussion. it looks like he's in the protocol anyway. so he is probably at the very least if he or this coming sunday against the packers, all right, one of the more positive notes with regard to this past week wide receiver jawan jennings
6:57 pm
hustle and worked his way onto the roster. after he was the 217th pick in the 2020 trap. that's the seventh round he hung around, worked hard. he came out of tennessee. his first catch is also his first nfl touchdown right before the half to get this victory started, and he knows he was not exactly the first option on that particular play for jimmy europe, alot. winning catch a touchdown was the last progression. this means the most from the from the very first time that i made the team, you know, it just means everything to me. that's what i wanted to do since i was a kid, and for kyle and 49ers organization, just. you know how the trust and being able to put me on the field? i gotta hold that end my bargain up and i'll let this team down. he's doing it so far. all right. if you follow baseball, you know, the padres were highly hyped part of the season. they have
6:58 pm
fallen apart in the second half of the year, and they're getting a little bit testy. two of their biggest stars in case you missed it got into it and the dugout this past weekend. oh, what's he saying? all right, that's manny machado and fernando. tatty status has been pouting a lot lately and machado more of a veteran just had it with him and padres of last eight out of 10. the tensions start to show alright, case you missed it. local product on the football field yesterday. badji harris. yeah look at that as a grown man straight up right there, throwing down john abrams right there. nausea also got his first nfl touchdown. yeah good for him out of acadia. yeah, that's the sporting life guys. see you later, everyone. goodnight, everybody. thanks goodnight, everybody. thanks for joining us.
