9:03 am
today. quick question. garcia when you go to the supermarket that people still wearing masks most of the time, i would say 60% are the first time i saw someone in massive that. oh, my gosh. but now i'm like it's okay. it's cool, so yeah, it's gradually balancing a little bit of what's it like in your neighborhood 2025% but definitely those. it's more of the employees. okay interesting . it's so interesting to watch these changes, isn't it? let's talk about something that i know parents are very young children are focused on this morning this morning, moderna is taking steps to expand access to its covid vaccine. the move could make millions of children eligible for that critical protection. we turned to mike tobin for the latest more kids could soon become eligible for covid-19 shots today, moderna asked the fda to authorized low doses of its covid vaccine for kids younger than six years old, the drugmaker says in a trial two shots triggered high levels of virus fighting antibodies. if given the green light, the move could open up shots to millions of children by the summer if they go with some of their prior timelines. a month to six weeks from now, i think we now have a safe and effective vaccine to be
9:04 am
able to offer them. currently only kids five years or older can be vaccinated against covid-19 using fighters formula. the fda has not yet ruled on moderna's other pediatric application, citing concerns about rare cases of heart inflammation in teenage boys. chief medical officer says safety data from vaccinations given abroad should reassure parents we've supplemented that with additional data i think there is an important medical need here with these young disc kids. meanwhile doctor anthony fauci appears to be walking back comments he made this week that we are out of the pandemic phase of covid instead . on wednesday, he told the associated press quote. we are in a different moment of the pandemic. what dr fauci was saying is that we are in a different phase of this pet pandemic, and that's absolutely true. but we also know covid isn't over and the pandemic isn't over. the white house is now asking congress for billions in additional funding to help fight the pandemic. in chicago. mike tobin ktvu fox two news is going to be the last day of

9:09 am
still any win. once you start to get to may, and it's been a dry, mainly a dry year. as you know, it's something to watch here. although it is staying cool. we're not seeing any warm up anytime soon. sean says, steve, i'm freezing. i think i'm ready for some heat any more rain coming now, maybe around the fifth of may but that the systems are trending a little drier, but it is freezing out there. i think she is a firefighter. but you didn't tell me where sean, i have to give you your company there shout out , but anyway, it is cold out there. there's no doubt about that. the wind speeds highest. looks like altamont pass will take on our 61 mph, mount diablo and tamil pass both over 50 last tramples east bay hills, 34. fairfield, sfo twin peaks. billy or between 30 and 32 mile per hour gusts. now if you look north, it's mainly clear, but that's not the case if you go south because there's a lot of cloud cover, especially over san jose. low clouds. areas around the peninsula, santa cruz mountains as well and you can see heading down into the santa clara valley. low clouds mainly around 1400, devon 2800. ft.
9:10 am
wind advisories out until 11 and there's a there's no doubt about it brisk wind in place, so mix of sun and clouds breezy to cool . the mild, mainly cool, though it's freezing right now. it'll be cold tomorrow morning and sunny and warmer in the afternoon napa, tiburon pierce and carlos santa clare all cooling off. these are really cool temps for the end of april, there'll be in the mid sixties low sixties and a few will be in the upper fifties. one of the reasons is the air aloft is really cold. sonoma mountains. 38 diablo is 34 degrees with the northwest wind almost 50 miles an hour to get your attention, and ben lomond mount is 39 conquered west gusting to 21 oakland 21, nevada west gusting to 36. there's still some pretty good gusts about the 40 mile an hour range here, especially in the higher elevations. sfo's picking up 33 mph saying carlos now gusting to 28. livermore is up to 26. these are cold cold winds here because the temperatures are still only in the fifties. i don't think they'll see some locations get out of the upper fifties, and some will stay stuck in them low
9:11 am
to mid sixties. i can see some of the cloud cover popping up colder air over the relatively warmer water, even though the water is really cold in the upper forties. in low fifties on monday, we had eighties. we did yes, we did. and today we'll have mainly sixties. this will be the coolest day of the week, so fifties sixties on attempts tomorrow morning. i think we get a lot of mid thirties here, but it will be sunny and warmer. a weak system a little cooler, little warmer, little cool. it looks like the first week of may will be this kind of a pattern. you guys, there you go. alright steve. thank you. president biden is requesting more aid to ukraine coming up here on mornings onto the nine details of the multi billion dollar proposal as ukraine continues to defend itself against russia, also the bay area leading the country when it comes to million dollar home sales after the break. we're talking with the redfin economist for an update on where the housing market in the bay area is headed.

oakland and berkeley metro area came in second at 49% the housing market here in the bay area right now is still very hot , despite the rising interest rates, but some real estate experts and economists say the growing inflation and rising rates could put an end to this surgeon housing prices. redfin's deputy chief economist taylor mark joins us live to dive into the bay area housing market. good morning, taylor. good morning. thanks for having me. of course. how about a little true or false right off the bat here highest mortgage rates in 13 years means home prices will go down in the bay area. true or false and why well, maybe not down, but we do anticipate that it will slow the pace of appreciation on prices have been growing double just for a couple of years now in the bay area and across the country. and you're exactly right with mortgage rates and increasing actually their fastest pace in more than four decades. this is going to put a little bit of a slowdown in terms of price appreciation. so while prices may not fall, it
9:16 am
will have an impact on prices. the term often buyers market seller's market. this is a seller's market. but are the days of those you know multiple offers, and i say multiple, i mean 10 offers on the property. are those going? bye bye. or do you think they're sticking around here? so what we're starting to see from our agents on the ground is that fewer of them are facing competition. there are fewer bidding wars. however we just got done doing the weather report. it's going from a really hot market to maybe a slightly less hot but still hot. still a seller's market still strong competition . but maybe instead of 10 offers on a typical home you only experience five or seven. but still competition is very common in the area. i mentioned those numbers coming into you, um san jose is a hot market. where else in the bay area, you know, i don't know if you know the particular cities but the suburbs outside of the major metropolitan cities, including oakland and san francisco. yeah, that's exactly right. so all planned. still very competitive . still, you know, more affordable relatives. san
9:17 am
francisco and san jose, which continues to attract people. that's one way of coping with the higher borrowing costs from the rising interest rates is to look to more affordable further out suburbs, especially all the companies in the bay area offering hybrid in remote work. it really is pushing people to the further out suburbs, especially in the northeast. and then even beyond that towards sacramento, and you know, sacramento has gained a tremendous amount of migration from the bay area that's continuing and especially amidst the rise. ah in the affordability crunch from higher interest rates. i mean, houses are so expensive right now, you know for those who bought a house, taylor let's say within the last year is there concern should they be concerned that maybe the cost of the home that they bought will start to go down like not like a bubble bursting like we saw 15 years ago. that's a different story. but should they be concerned that the that the cost they got in won't be the same come next year? you know most people who bought in the last year the
9:18 am
typical person is staying in their home about 8 to 10 years and so as long as they are not flipping homes, and they're really households that moved into this house, they plan to stay in it for a number of years. they'll be fine amidst, you know, even a slowdown in price growth from higher interest rates. now we do know that a lot of people amidst bidding wars did overpay on some homes and if there are people who are forced to move or have a job change, you know, there might be some people who might not see much gained from their home, maybe even a little bit of a loss if they overpaid significantly a year ago, so that is a rest. what about this? the buying power of high wage earners here in the bay area, you know the speed of all those cash offers right? all cash in ah, that's still king in the market. cash is still king definitely, and we are seeing a rise in cash sales amidst higher borrowing costs, so it makes sense that when the cost of borrow rice you know more caches is prevalent, and so i think people are even looking to do that as well. um, whereas they
9:19 am
might have jumped on 3% mortgage rate they're looking to put more down into try and avoid as much borrowing as possible. one more for the road here for those looking to buy a home. do you expect inventory at all to increase? we do. we are starting to see some signs of inventory gains. it might not be growing just yet, but we are seeing it moving in a healthy direction. as the market does potentially slow down a little bit. you'll have buyers have more options for homes. so we do expect that that said, we are seeing some sellers even pull back from listing their homes for sale because you know, most sellers are looking to be a buyer also, and if they're trading that 3% mortgage for a 5% that just is less attractive now, so we're seeing a little bit of a deficit start to show up in new listings, hitting the market as well. taylor mar, deputy chief economist of red fan appreciate the conversation. taylor have a good one. thanks for having me. the u. s economy cooled

9:43 am
successful because of the closure. the vote also means another street closure on post street will could could continue , but only on weekends escaping . report on the minneapolis police department commissioned in the wake of the george floyd killing. it shows officers have long treated people of color differently than whites. the organizational culture at mpd has existed unchecked for resulting in unlawful discriminatory policing. it undermines public safety, and it's been going on for at least the past decade. the investigation by the minnesota department of human rights details how officers in the department stopped searched and cited black people more often than white and subjected them to more force in police interactions. let's talk more about the report in reaction to it by welcoming as we do every week, the host of fox souls the black report. good morning to you, demi lobo. good morning yet again. gasia mikaelian another day. another wonderful topic. i'm happy to join you today. i know that you and your viewers
9:44 am
had long talks about this report, and i'm curious their initial reaction to it. so the initial reaction what i thought for myself and of course, our listeners and viewers. i thought that was really great that they're going to reach out to the community because the minnesota police department has had a long history of violence against the black community. and so this report stating up top is saying that they're going to reach out to community leaders and those in the community to see what should be added to this report, so that was really important. because the community is what matters. a lot of people in minnesota don't really feel safe right now. and honestly, people around the world don't feel safe when it comes to police violence, so knowing that being a part of the community your say could matter means everything. police violence such as the case of george floyd's death, of course, makes headlines nationwide. what do your viewers say about the effect of smaller actions? things like being targeted for traffic stops or searches? what effect does that have on them and their relationship with police? honestly garcia, it is, uh, it's very hard to watch
9:45 am
every day every week. we're talking about another story about a black man or a black woman who was gunned down by white police. and so it's really a shame that in 2022, we're still talking about this, and it's happening over and over again. and so every little step it does make you feel a glimmer of hope. that hopefully we'll get to a day where this won't be the case, but every single police department every single elected official our president, everyone who makes one step closer to making us feel safe in america's black americans. it does. it does feel good. at the end of the day. you're lucky that you have a nationwide really a worldwide audience through your streaming channel. have you heard success stories either from you know, people in the community or law enforcement and saying, hey, we tried this and it worked. so that's what i say every week. my question every week is instead of us just reporting on another death, another death, another death. what can be done? and so there are certain people in the community of that field. hey a smart like you said. something
9:46 am
small can help and what really, really helps is voting in your local elections. and so i know, like in california. we definitely on our show. we tell our california voters specifically and around the world. i won't even specifically say about california but around the world to specifically go out and vote in the local elections because a lot of the people who make those rules that can make or break a rule that a police department can say hey, i was fearful for my life. it comes down to the elected officials that are elected and so one thing that we stress a lot on our show is to make sure you vote in the local elections because that can make or break everything. have you heard from viewers who are in minneapolis who have lived there for 10 years plus who have been able to give personal accounts of what this report is showing. so we have we speak to a lot of the local activists that are in minneapolis in minnesota on the ground because that was when george floyd passed away tragically that shook the world and the world has not been the same ever since. george floyd's death, and so we had to speak to
9:47 am
the people that are on the ground right now, the current moment making changes, and so when we speak to those people, we definitely want to know what is the what is the feeling like on the ground because even george floyd square was the air. area the perimeter where after he passed away all the businesses were affected. a lot of people lost money, the businesses that were surrounding where he passed away, and so we've spoken to the local activists and the people that are just in the city. and so it's very somber right now because you're still afraid for your life because there have been no changes with the minnesota police here. we are still talking about it years later, and there really haven't been a lot of changes. and so the naacp has tried and so many different black organizations, big black organizations have tried and we're all trying to do our part to right the wrongs. but at the end of the day, going back to local elections in minnesota, they're going to have to get out. some of those officials who have been there for a long time and have these awful rules that make it okay for police officers to murder black americans. and not have any charges based towards the
9:48 am
report found very little in the way of police accountability here in minneapolis will will focus more on this report. of course, through the day, demi we have to let you go now. i appreciate your joining us as you do every week, and we'll see you next week again. absolutely garcia. thank you so much for letting us come on to be so passionate about all these topics. we truly appreciate your horse. of course, of course, a quick reminder we could all watch fox soul online and over. fax all dot tv. we can also watch it on the foxhole app for apple and android devices. alright, coming up here on the night
