5:08 pm
shooting in texas and for some breaching the topic. can be a difficult one. foxes austin westfall joins us live tonight with more on the story, austin good evening. mike. good evening talking to this psychologist. that all depends on how old your child is, she says that most important message that you can share with the child right now is that they are safe. take a look at this list that she provided for us. elementary school children need brief and concrete examples like reminding them about exterior doors being locked. how teachers are looking after them while they're on the playground and emergency drills that are being practiced during the school day. but you might be asking how many details should you share with younger children about tragedies like this one child and adolescent psychologist reena patel says that you should talk about things that they understand. it's appropriate to explain what that students and teachers were involved, but death counts may not be as appropriate. her advice is to ask your child what
5:09 pm
they already know about the incident. listen with intent without jumping in to try to finish their sentences and then process that information and then share it in a developmentally appropriate way again. the baseline should be they're safe at home and at school and that their plans in place to make sure that they stay safe. patel says the middle and high schoolers may be more likely to have doubts and ask whether they are truly safe at school, and they may be curious how they can help keep schools safe. here in the charlotte area . mental health counselors at schools are going out of their way to meet students who want to talk about the incident. their schedules are cleared. certainly the administrative folks and our parents understand, and then they will go to the school make themselves available throughout the day. now that was dr nancy turner, who is the director of mental health at rockhill
5:10 pm
schools, she says a common question that kids ask is what does shootings like this happen? she says. it's okay to admit that you don't know the answer to that question. but you're doing your best to understand that yourself. local law enforcement here in the charlotte area are boosting their presence around schools right now, and many more around the country are doing the same thing. in charlotte, austin, westfall ktvu. fox two news the same conversation with my own children just yesterday difficult, but one that needed to be had, and, uh, just reinforce that they are going to be safe. and i'll always be there for them. alright, austin. thank you. u. s. senator alex padilla is calling for action on gun safety legislation. padilla attended a grassroots rally today in washington, d. c along with other members of congress, gun violence, survivors and gun safety supporters. they're demanding more be done in congress on gun safety in the wake of tuesday's mass shooting at the elementary school, and you baldy, texas and the recent mass shootings in buffalo, new york and orange county. yes. we

5:20 pm
boy. it was a cold night or it will be a cold night out there. it's a temperatures have dropped significantly over what we had. yesterday we had two temperature day drops in a row. yesterday it dropped significantly today another 10 to 15 degrees. tomorrow still, you know, going to be on the mild side. you can see the drop from yesterday to today in santa rosa. look at that. i mean significant 99 to 70 degrees today in concord, that was the high end conquered 70 degrees highs tomorrow are going to be a little bit warmer , but not much. i mean, we're living in the seventies and eighties, and this is actually a good thing, i think, except because because you're right fire danger air quality kind of takes care of some of that we have robust onshore winds. high humidities significant winds. the winds are blowing pretty significantly along the coast, and that's enough to drop temperatures and the other thing that's happened is see how the marine air pushing inland. check it out. all that. that's getting up over the coastal hills. the inversion is blown out. it's over 3000 ft deep and so that puts fog and low clouds all the
5:21 pm
way up into the sacramento valley. and so everybody is equal opportunity. cool down. fire danger is going to get a little break. look at fairfield is 31 degrees cooler than it was yesterday at this time, 32 degrees cooler and conquered. so yeah, if you're wearing a jacket out and conquer, don't feel bad about it. makes sense. these are the winds right now. gusty conditions 17 miles an hour at the santa rosa airport, sfo. not as windy as you think. i think we had a little south in this wind based on the arrows here, so little southwest wind. it doesn't funnel in the same places where you typically get it gives deliver more a bit of a break that the altamont and gives the san bruno gap a little bit of a break. so the plan see that low? you know what it does. it creates a pressure gradient. it cools us off, and it has the potential here as we go into the next 36 hours or so, to me, bring a few sprinkles or something. especially you know, like some drizzle or something along those lines. so when i come back, we'll put it all together like going on, but you get used to it. it's not. it's going to be puffy's and

5:30 pm
albany is usually pretty quiet. so parents are very concerned about this incident, which happened two months after another attack near a school. sorry i'm really surprised right now because the school didn't give us any details. some parents in the dark after a vague report of a student victimized near albany middle school, i received an email that there was a child that had an interaction with an adult. they didn't give any details. i had no idea. the police said only that a 14 year old was the victim of a sexual battery while walking to school. i have learned that the victim was a girl that she was confronted by a man with a knife who asked her to show him her private area. it happened at about 8 15 tuesday morning near the corner of evelyn and brighten just blocks from campus. the girl described the attackers a black man about 40 to 50 years old, bald with a black and gray stubble type beard. albany police are treating the case as a sexual battery incident. unsettling to parents and neighbors. anybody you know, walking to school, you're expected to just walk to school and anybody approached. you know, without knowing again
5:31 pm
the particulars. i think it's very disturbing. some parents complained that the school and police weren't forthcoming with details. one man who didn't want his face shone says he has to students at the school, not seeing the responsiveness. nor transparency of information so that our community can just be generally aware. police said they had no new information to provide. the district superintendent was unavailable for an interview. just hearing it happens in broad daylight was kind of gets you, you know. i always think it's not going to happen in your neighborhood. so of course it's concerning this incident happened two months after a student at cornell elementary off solano avenue in albany was assaulted near the campus. in response to both the incidents, albany police have boosted patrols near schools. el cerrito, bart and berkeley. police are also on the lookout for this guy. anyone with information as to call albany police live in albany. henry lee ktvu fox two news, henry. thank you. police in san ramon are stepping up patrols at iron
