12:01 pm
really fueled this fire. orange county firefighters spent the overnight and early morning hours dousing hot spots and keeping the coastal fire from spreading had some success setting up containment lines were confident that it's not going to escape those lines. however it's we're not putting it out to mop up stage because we still have to reinforce those containment lines has burned about 200 acres and destroyed at least 20 homes, but firefighters warned that number may go up. teams are still assessing the damage. the fire started shortly before three o'clock yesterday afternoon in a canyon coastal winds fanned the flames uphill and into neighborhoods. i was coming home three o'clock from san clemente and i saw some smoke. my wife was here and we saw a little bit of fire in the canyon behind our house. wind started kicking in. and then all of a sudden we saw this flames leap over crest behind our house . and then the helicopter came and said, hey, everybody has to get out. the homes in this community are palatial. one of the homes that burned is about
12:02 pm
10,000 square feet. it was listed for sale for about $10 million weeks before the fire destroyed it. the scenes of devastation left some of the few residents who returned nearly speechless. a lot of people have lost their homes. it's just hard to look at. yeah, that's probably all i can say. southern california edison did report some circuit activity in the area close to where the fire started, but the official cause is still under investigation asked for the firefighter who was injured, we don't have any specific information on what exactly happened. the assistant fire chief said only that that firefighter had a quote medical condition while fighting the fire overnight. the firefighter is expected to recover. garcia and andre will send it back to you, ali. thank you now to the covid pandemic. as today, president biden is marking a grim milestone. one million deaths caused by covid in the united states. this comes as the president is taking part in a virtual global covid summit. lauren blanchard has more from washington. by a presidential proclamation. flags have been
12:03 pm
lowered to half staff to ensure the nearly one million americans who have died from the coronavirus one million covid desk. one million empty chairs around the family dinner table. president biden, marking the somber milestone with a virtual summit with other global leaders. but back at home, a new gallup poll finds that two thirds of americans believe the pandemic is getting better, and more than half of americans say they're not trying to isolate in any way. still during the summit , president biden called on congress to pass more funding. for testing treatments and vaccines to prevent future outbreaks. the request also includes $5 billion to keep up our global partnership in the fight against covid-19, the president said the u. s will share health technologies with the world health organization and is starting a testing and treatment program for hard to reach areas around the world, but that funding faces an uphill battle. when the house passes it, we will do everything we can
12:04 pm
to get covid legislation passed , republicans are wary to throw more money at the pandemic and may force democrats to take up immigration issues before more funding. the only path i can see that right now for getting any type of covid aid is to leave title 42 in place cases have been steadily rising almost three times as many now compared to just a month ago. nowhere near what we saw this winter with the um akron surge in washington. lauren blanchard, ktvu fox two news. well this afternoon. the baby formula shortage problem has made its way to the white house with president biden said to speak with retailers and manufacturers about the ongoing issue, administration officials within announced additional actions to address the problem. it comes as parents across the country scramble a shortage linked to supply chain blockage and the closure of one of the nation's largest formula manufacturing plants. lauren green has the latest, including the hearing by lawmakers later this month. a shortage of baby formula has
12:05 pm
parents across the nation on high alert, the shortages impacting every state in the country, forcing some parents to scramble to find formula to feed their babies. so that's a real panic for parents when they go to the grocery store, and they see those shelves and then they have to drive 40 miles to get to the next one. maybe i mean, parents shouldn't be having to face this. officials are blaming the shortage on supply chain issues combined with the formula recall at abbott industries, one of the largest formula manufacturing plants in the nation. it's been a struggle. if nothing else has been a mental struggle, because as a parent you just want to provide for your childhood. your worst nightmare. if you're unable to do so, abbott industries was forced to close down a michigan plant back in february following concerns that some of its products may have been contaminated with harmful bacteria. lawmakers are now calling on the fda to look extensively into these claims and address the shortage. i think the fda knows urgency of the situation and that they need to get on with the investigation. meanwhile republican lawmakers are
12:06 pm
slamming the president as president. united states you're responsible for leadership in this country. we want to make sure that there is a plan and we have seen no plan from joe biden or the fda. the nationwide supply of infant formula has decreased by 40% since april. house members are expected to hold a hearing on the ongoing shortage later this month. in new york. lauren green fox news. the nine u. s. supreme court justices are holding a private meeting today. washington insiders say it is likely to be a tense one. it's just the first time they have officially met since the draft opinion on roe v. wade was leaked to the public nine days ago. as expected. democrats in the u. s. senate were unable to push a bill to protect access to abortion to a floor vote. vice president kamala harris presided over the procedural vote. it needed 60 votes to get past a republican filibuster. in the end, 49 lawmakers voted in favor of the bill 51 voted against it. this vote clearly suggest that the senate is not where the majority
12:07 pm
of americans are on this issue. it also makes clear that a priority for all who care about this issue priority should be to elect pro choice leaders at the local state and the federal level. while there is a lot of focus on what appears to be the likely reversal of roe v. wade, political analysts say there are many other topics that will also push voters to the polls. i don't think it will be a bigger issue than inflation and the economy. however i think this is sort of a big, important side dish to a lot of voters. but i still think the you know the main dish is going to be. how are people feeling in their pocketbook? the issue of abortion rights thrust into the political forefront following that leaked draft opinion showing the high court could be poised to overturn roe versus wade in the coming weeks. at the same time, governor newsom wants to spend tens of millions of dollars to protect abortion rights and also expand access to abortions in the state. ktvu
12:08 pm
sema gas has details on his new proposal and what it could mean for abortion providers. i think governor gavin newsom gave californians a preview wednesday of his forthcoming budget proposal seeking major increases to investments for access to abortion care proposal includes $40 million in grants for abortion providers to compensate them for providing low or no cost abortions. that's critical funding for the more than 100 planned parenthood's across california. seeing that investment was really great because it was a recognition of the work that our health centers do every day. um and that investments going to allow that type of character continue for years also sets aside money for a state run reproductive care website. it's a resource that naral pro choice california and abortion rights advocacy organizations that's headquartered in san francisco has been pushing for and that is a one stop shop website so that people can access comprehensive information about where to
12:09 pm
access abortion care how to get financial assistance for that, how to get logistical support. i really to ensure that that it's all self contained right that people are not falling subject to misinformation. disinformation east bay assembly member rebecca bauer kahan is on the legislative women's caucus, which has championed for this additional funding. what you're seeing is a real commitment from the governor to put significant funds behind the ability to access reproductive healthcare and abortion and you'll see the same from the legislature. the next step is for newsome and the legislature to negotiate and then pass the budget by mid june , well timed for the united states supreme court's decision on roe v. wade to come out. emma goss, ktvu fox two news. we're now hearing from san jose police about an officer who is accused of trading and methamphetamine pipe to a woman in exchange for information. please say the case has been under investigation since last december, the unnamed officer currently on administrative leave the police department says it can't go into
12:10 pm
specifics due to the law and officers right but says if any officer is found to have violated the public's trust, they will be held accountable product. today's police response is a statement by the police chief, anthony mata last week on recent incidents of officers accused of misconduct, saying quote when an officer is convicted of criminal conduct, i will personally walk them out the door. still to come. at noon, the san francisco board of education announced today will be the new superintendent will tell you who he is. and the other beary school district. he is coming from. plus making history in california reaction from workers at to santa cruz, starbucks as they become the first in our state to unionize. at a barrier weather tracking a few clouds today as we watch our front to kind of approach the north coast of california, but we have a warming forecast by the
12:11 pm
12:12 pm
12:13 pm
on s digesting yet another dire report on inflation. today jones is down by one and three quarters of a percent, losing more than 550 points. right now, percentage wise, the s and p is a little bit worse off. nasdaq's right about the same. well history has been made at a starbucks in santa cruz. it became one of the first locations in the state to unionize as ktvu semantic in town. it tells us this noon. security issues and low wages are two issues that prompted workers to vote for this change.
12:14 pm
i go to starbucks a lot. so, um so i want the starbucks people to be happy. merry graves feels like she knows all the baristas at starbucks, and she's seen them struggle while extremely low staffed. everyone's going to come from san jose. they're going to stop off here. there's only three guys working here today. and you can't do that to them because they're not gonna have bathroom breaks. everyone's going to be yelling at them. she's even seen their safety in jeopardy. i used to go to a lot to the starbucks on ocean street. and i know that the one over there had a lot of problems with homeless people coming in and berating people and the baristas were not treated very well. it's those security issues , low wages and a lack of support from management that workers say contributed to their need to start organizing a union six months ago. starbucks union that files for the workers united as part of the starbucks workers united union. it's you know, the bargaining happens at each individual store, and we're you know, we're fighting for specific things that work best
12:15 pm
for our store, but we're being helped and led by the national team baristas at both the mission and ocean street, starbucks in santa cruz have voted to unionize following about 50 other locations across the country that have unionized since december. it's a move many customers support the ceos. kid can have a tesla, but the workers can barely afford a honda. so go figure and who's working hard. so if you look at the disparity between wages and upper administrations, wages or their salary with stock options. then you see that workers need better pay and a bigger piece of the pie basically right, starbucks says it's stronger without unions and announced new benefits last week, including wage increases, expanded training time and improved sickly for employees across the country. but it says those unionizing will not get those new benefits. this is a clear violation of the national labor relations act, and it's a threat to all organizing baristas.
12:16 pm
while the starbucks here in santa cruz are just the first to unionize in the state, the union organizer here is now leading 19 other starbucks locations in california planning to unionize because now that we have the union we need to show the power of unions. and how and why we organized this union drive and more than 200 other u s locations could soon follow, too. i think that's a kind of gold star for santa cruz, because i think we're standing up for people to quintana ktvu, fox two news no. at noon. san jose city officials are considering reversing a ban on car cruising, calling it discriminatory against latinos and the low rider culture, but police say a reversal could lead to more crashes. san jose band cruising on specific downtown streets back in 1992 in response to crime and traffic related incidents. but according to the chronicle, city leaders say the crimes and accidents were often unrelated to the cruising itself. a city committee voted unanimously to direct the city manager to get rid of the ban as
12:17 pm
part of the budget process, switching gears down to look at your forecast. meteorologist mark tamayo is downstairs in the studio with a look at the warming temperatures today is kind of that transition day. mark. yeah that's right. that's kind of a weak system, halting the warming trend for today, but tomorrow going to warm up those numbers a bit and also as we head into the weekend, but if you looked up at the sky over the past couple of hours, you may have noticed a few high clouds, especially up in the northern half of the bay area, and that that system will bring some rainfall not for us, but up along the north coast of california. maybe a slight chance of a sprinkle up in the north bay. but the main activity is up to our north, and every thursday we get the new drought map here. not too much change. if you can't see here, the bay area dealing with the severe drought that extreme contour is the kind of expanding and coverages you can't see over portions of the bay area's so no improvement as you would expect with our with our status this week. here is the forecast, though tuesday remember that that was the coolest day of the week. we warmed up yesterday. kind of flattening now compared to yesterday, so not a big change in temperatures and then
12:18 pm
we'll notice that warm up for your friday and into saturday, so tuesday, the coolest day of the week saturday should be the war. mistake of the week. here is the satellite and the radar. some rainfall up to our north up on the north coast of california. and a little bit of activity moving into a mendocino county approaching sonoma county, so there's a slight chance of a sprinkle up there. but for us, we just have some clouds paying us a visit right now into the afternoon hours. by mid afternoon, these clouds will gradually clear on out current numbers out there right now we have san francisco only in the fifties 56 lots of sixties for santa rosa conquered and livermore and the warm spots this afternoon will be approaching the 70 degree mark. here is a look at our current wind speeds, and it has been breezy at that time of year. the winds are somewhat of a factor. fairfield southwesterly gusting to 24 miles an hour. and some more reports for you for san jose mountain view san carlos and sfo a bit of a stronger breathed gusting to 30.5 moon bay went out of the northwest at

12:20 pm
in the opera sixties. so if you like the temperatures yesterday are probably like the temperatures for today. pretty much a duplicate forecast for your thursday afternoon and then we warm things up beginning friday and temperatures up a good dough 8 to 10 degrees across the bay area for your friday saturday will be the warmest day of the week. and that could mean submit to possibly some upper eighties looks like a little bit of a cool down for sunday and into monday, but as you can see here kind of a quieter weather pattern of warm up, but at least we're not talking about any major heat in the berry forecast. mark, thank you still to come a building where tragedy and heartache on folded in the south beach reduced to rubble. the reason, officials decided the building were nine employees were shot and killed.

yeah. asuka fukuda is on the state department of health's outreach speakers. the best that you can do is limit much you are in contact with somebody who has, you know the current um, coronavirus, and that is why the principal out of an abundance of caution decided to protect the students, the staff, their families and the greater community so far from the parents that we've heard them, they've been very, very positive . it appears to have worked for a thursday, reopening strongly recommended that we have masks for all the students and staff indoors, and i am requiring that for thursday and friday what's really troubling how barea county stack up statewide 100,000 residents. santa cruz, san francisco marin and san mateo. have the state's highest infection rates, almost double the state rate, and all nine bay area counties are in the 41 to
12:34 pm

12:36 pm
officers to do the job of protecting the public, and that balance is difficult, so there's a lot of work to be done on this policy. we do have to address disparities. police can still site drivers for low level offenses. tickets would come in the mail or left on a parked car. a final commission vote is expected this fall. now the san francisco police officers association issued this statement that reads officers focus on behavior when making traffic stops to enforce the vehicle code. not anything else. the reality is routine traffic stops can lead to removing illegal guns off of our streets. and given the level of gun violence our city is experiencing these traffic stops literally save lives and quote. the documentary film about the fatal shooting of 13 year old andy lopez in santa rosa by a sheriff's deputy has been nominated for a bay area any award. got fired. i think the film is called three seconds in october the shooting of andy lopez. it chronicles the
