tv KTVU Mornings on 2 FOX June 22, 2022 7:00am-9:00am PDT
evacuations in the hills of san mateo county. from ktvu. fox two news. this is mornings on two and good morning to you. welcome to mornings onto i'm claudine wong rasmus. today is wednesday , june 22nd good morning cloudy . good morning. i know do not have their conditioning. neither do i and steve paulson yesterday was a pretty uncomfortable day sad do over here. they area wide. it really didn't matter where you were. there was pretty bad heat. alright claudinei heard from pam and allie. now it's your turn. oh it's a complaint about complaining, complaining, you know, complainers. well, i was out actually in hayward, watching a friend's son play some baseball yesterday afternoon and as narrow and 100. quite hot. yes little bit of shade difference in the world. start a little cool down coast in bay today, still hot inland, but there will be a little twist. what's that tropical clouds are flying up?
the leading edges, making it into parts of south san jose already where it's 68 degrees, the city that was 58. they're running five degrees cooler than 24 hours ago, and fog is inching up the santa cruz coast so combination of these two will start off with sunshine. but then there'll be some changes. it will be cooler coast bay and in san francisco and then tropical cloud, especially san jose, santa clara valley and out towards eastern contra costa county. i think around livermore out to stockton as well. but still seventies eighties nineties to near 100. alright. sal's here at 701 so far so good. something new. are we alright? just the usual. it's the usual state, which is what we like. we do have the usual slowing and a lot of the same places like the bay bridge, for example, we do have some slow traffic there waiting to get onto the spanish looks like a typical wednesday 10 to 15 minute wait before you make it on if you'd rather use the same mateo bridge and get over to the peninsula that way, it looks pretty good when you get over there. there is a little slowing in san mateo, but nothing out of the ordinary. and in the east bay highway four is slow and so
is 6 80 from concord, walnut creek, 701. let's get back to the headlines. thank you, sal. we want to continue. to follow that breaking news out of san jose, where police in the middle of a standoff with a homicide suspect this is near bern, ben dorf in a soaker drives near monterey road in 101. this video you're looking at is from around two this morning. you heard those sirens. that was a police chase. and there you see a large police presence that took position around two o'clock this morning near eatonville elementary school. police say the person who is involved in this barricade is connected to two homicides, including a shooting that happened near mount pleasant, high school around seven o'clock last night. so you're a live look at the scene this morning. people who live in this area have been ordered to shelter in place because the barricaded suspect apparently started shooting at some of the officers. roads in this area are also closed again . it's between monterey road in 101 and ben dorf road. san jose police sergeant christian
camarillo just wrapped up a news conference detailing this second deadly shooting tied to the suspect. here's what he had to say. drove to the city of modesto sometime after committing the homicide here in san jose. in modesto few minutes after nine pm, he shot and killed an adult female. police say the suspect, then drove back to san jose, and since they knew the vehicle he was driving. police followed him. officers eventually tracked him to this residential neighborhood where he remains barricaded in the back yard of a home. right now. maintenance crews are still working to repair bart train tracks in the east bay this morning. a train derailed just before six o'clock last night. this was between the concord and the pleasant hill stations. ktvu is american. tana is live along the track this morning with an overhead view of all the repair work that has been done and you have more details as well on what may have caused this derailment and certainly computers watching as well this
morning trying to figure out how this is going to affect them, amanda yes, well, that's some good news about how it's going to affect the morning commute is you can actually see there's a bart train going by right now. so there are losing these tracks on the left side here. to send bart trains in both directions. but then on the right side here, that truck is the one where that train was derailed. the train used to be sitting right here where you're looking, but it has been removed overnight. but there still are workers here. they need to replace those damaged tracks. we've seen them bring a lot of materials here. obviously those bart trains going through, so that is good news. if you are planning on getting on bar this morning, there will be serviced through this area. officials tell us there were 50 passengers on the train. when the last two cars of the 10 car bart train derailed sky, foxx captured video of the train at a standstill.
passengers we spoke to were shaken. some pulled the emergency door release and evacuated on their own. some had to be rescued by firefighters. a few people were taken away on stretchers, but luckily no one was seriously injured. basically the old part went flying right and went up in the air and then, like everyone was freaking out was like a roller coaster or something, you know. interviewed the train operator from the front lead cab, and they're actually happened to be an off duty train operator in that last car. so we interview them to ask , you know? what did you see? what did you hear? what did it feel like that will help us determine. you know what happened? bart says the initial assessment revealed heat did play a main role in this derailment and caused the track to curve now. of course, if you are planning to come through this area this morning, you will be using that single track so again just that track on the left side, but you will be able
to get through looking at the work that these records have been doing this morning. it seems like they will be here for a while. there are still about a dozen workers here that we've seen come on and off the track, and they've been going up and down, checking the track for damage, so it seems like it could be a while longer before that track is fixed, but again, they are using this one on the left in both directions, so that is good if you are planning to use bart this morning live in concord, amanda keown, panic. ktvu, fox two news. alright thanks, amanda well, the first day of summer brought high temperatures and increased fire danger, so crews were able to react quickly when there was a call about smoking the hills of san mateo county. andre senior joins us live in the studio to explain that these were actually two fires that broke out. and pretty much in the same location and dangerous conditions to on top of that the smoke was coming from the emerald hills neighborhood, and there were evacuations. when the fire started. redwood city officials received several 911 calls about smoke in or near edward edward preserve. near crestwood drive
just before 2 30 today afternoon caller said they were worried flames could be headed towards their homes. there's a pgd power station near where the fire started, and power went off in neighborhoods that back up to the preserve. was headed out on the ride and heard a bunch of explosions. and then a few minutes later, there was smoke, and i'm like, probably not a good time to go away from home pretty scary stuff there. it's not clear yet. if the explosions he heard cause of fire, or the fire caused the explosions, the fires have burned more than 25 acres so far, people who live in the area say. they know there's a fire risk with their homes, backing up to the weiland's neighbors say they were ready to go when told to evacuate. at first, it was a recommended evacuation. and then the sheriff's office came through and said it was mandatory evacuation. and so we. started. that's when we started moving the horses out in the car waiting for her mom, and she had
to grab the cats and the fire department came to the door and ask to sleep. there's a report one firefighter was taken to stanford medical center, but we don't have an update on that person's condition. no one from the neighborhood was hurt and no homes were damaged people we talked within that area safe. they have been concerned about fire danger since early this year, because there's so many trees in that preserve their firefighters say people who live next to the open space have done a good job of clearing dry grass around their properties. but they all know more fires are possible as we face another long and hot summer. back to you, andre. thank you. protest continue outside the supreme court ahead of the justices decision on abortion access the case. at the center of that decision is dobbs versus jackson's women's health organization. the outcome could overturn roe v. wade now, if that happens, it would eliminate federal abortion protections nationwide and instead leave it up to the states to regulate abortion. yesterday morning to protesters jumped the barricade at the court and handcuffed themselves to one another
officers arrested them. decisions are expected to start coming out at seven o'clock tomorrow morning. new this morning today, president biden will call on congress to suspend the federal gas tax for three months. it's an effort to provide some financial relief for americans hit with record high gas prices. right now. the federal gas taxes 18.4 cents a gallon on regular gas and 24.4 cents on a gallon of diesel. the president is also calling on states to take similar action to provide relief from high gas prices. the senate is moving forward with bipartisan gun safety legislation. 14 republicans joined all 50 democrats and supporting the bill. the bill would expand background checks for gun buyers between the ages of 18 and 21 would also increased spending for school safety and mental health programs. the bill also prevents people convicted of domestic abuse from owning a gun. we know there's no such thing as a perfect piece of legislation. we are imperfect human beings. if the bill passes, it will be the first
major gun reform legislation in nearly 30. years of final vote is expected by the end of the week. the san jose police department has released a list of all its military style equipment to comply with the new state law. police chief anthony matter gave the list along with the reasons that equipment could be used to the san jose city council. that list is 93 pages long. it includes things like drones, robots remotely controlled vehicles as well as smoke, grenades and shotguns. mayor sam liccardo says police are trained to use the equipment as they fight crime. it is a necessity today in urban policing with active shooters. on the headlines every single day that officers need to be able to have the tools to keep themselves safe and keep the public safe. what's critical is for the public to know when those tools are not going to be used. the san jose police department is requesting to new military style pieces of equipment. one is called a bear, cat med vac. the other is a rook. there used to get officers in or out of a place that would
be impossible to get into safely without those tools. the city council has not yet voted on improved buying. approval of buying either of those vehicles . 7 10 is the time let's get you out the door with the check on the traffic conditions out there in the railway here, south all right, ali and claudine. good morning to you both were taking a look at the mcarthur maze coming around to the bay bridge. it looks pretty good here, and i think that the general commute today has been uneventful. there have been a couple of things to be sure, but it wasn't like yesterday when we had just a bunch of major problems. that we were talking about all morning long. i am looking, though at some slow traffic now or some more congestion on the same mateo bridge. as you can see, traffic is congested. i wouldn't call it slow our stop and go just yet. we're looking at a stop and go traffic on highway four. pittsburgh a point conquered and then some slowing pleasant hill to walnut creek. the issue freeway also has some slow traffic this morning. getting into elsa bronte and richmond into berkeley. 7 11.
let's go back to the desk. thank you. sal school is out for summer, many teachers are calling it quits for good coming up. why many? educators say they won't be returning to the classrooms this fall. but first new information on the fate of some of the americans captured by russia in ukraine why two americans will not be given the same protections as prisoners of war.
in front. there is some new information about the fate of some americans who went missing while fighting alongside ukrainians. 52 year old stevens abella ski went missing in may. government officials now confirm that he died in a battle with russian forces and two other former american service members are being held in moscow. kremlin says the two americans will not be given the same protections as prisoners of war. instead they're being treated as criminals and faced a possible death penalty. it's appalling that a public official in russia would even suggest ah, the death penalty for two american citizens that that were in ukraine. the move is being seen by some as a diplomatic escalation at a time when the russians are regrouping for a major new push to take ukraine's donbass region. the ukrainians
say the next few days could decide the fate of eastern ukraine. cranium president vladimir zelensky continues to ask for more aid from the west. new this morning and powerful earthquake struck afghanistan, killing at least 1000 people and injuring another 1500. the 6.1 magnitude earthquake hit in a rural part of eastern afghanistan near the border with pakistan. initial reports show that the damage from the quake is widespread. it destroyed many homes and buildings. rescue efforts may be difficult since many international aid agencies left afghanistan after the withdrawal of us forces last year. the next hearing of the house january 6th committee is tomorrow. the committee is of course, investigating what led up to the insurrection at the us capitol last year. at yesterday's hearing, state elections, officials from georgia and arizona testified about former president trump's efforts to get them to undermine the 2020 election. the committee spent much of the day outlining trump's efforts to pressure states to overturn biden's win. among those testifying a former election worker in georgia,
andrea shea, moss says she fears for her safety and she told the committee that her life was threatened due to the false accusations of voter fraud. felt horrible. i felt like it was all my fault now. people are lying and spreading rumors and lies and attacking my mom. republicans arizona republican house speaker rusty barriers testified he got a call from trump's lawyer rudy giuliani, right after the election. power said giuliani questioned his loyalty to the republican party and pressured him to find votes that did not exist well. jury selection in the christian smart murder trial is at a standstill due to health concerns for one of the two defendants. but officials in monterey county where the trial was transferred aren't disclosing which defendant is sick or with what illness. now the suspects are 45 year old paul flores and his 80 year old father. they're facing charges in connection with the 1996 murder and disappearance of cal poly student kristin smart
in san luis obispo. paul flores is charged with murder while his father is charged with helping dispose of her body. smarts remains, however, have never been found. time now is 7 17. here's south. castaneda keeping us informed, listening to what's going on in the scanners. how's it? look out there? traffic wise ? that's right. you've sat here with my scanners and you know i use everything, including my phone sometimes and people will text me. hey you know, someone texted me something a little while ago a little tip there, so i appreciate that. if you are driving on highway four. let's start there because we do. we do have some slow traffic on highway four and 60 80. as you drive pittsburgh over to the hill to concord in 60, 80 pleasant hill to walnut creek and looks like we have a new crash reported westbound 5 80 at the richmond bridge. that's exactly what i didn't want to hear. because the richmond bridge traffic had been going pretty well. i can dial up that camera and show you that traffic is a little slow. it doesn't seem all that slow, though, like
there's a crash there, so hopefully it's whatever it is, is minor, and it'll just be taken care of. so the commute doesn't get really super slow highway 24 looks pretty good to the tunnel and there is crowding at the bay bridge. 7 18. let's bring steve back in with today's weather. thank you, sir. we start off pretty quiet conditions here, but he warm for many, although there are signs that will be cooler coast and bay today. and tropical clouds are just racing up here. i'll show you that in a second yesterday, another month of record highs every month. this year. we have set record highs. yesterday was our june records for sfo, oakland. and san jose. what's interesting about oakland was the airport and downtown both 98. usually there's a difference, and san jose's 102. that was a record beating the old market one. oh, one there. air aloft is really warm as an 80 degrees at sonoma mountain, 77, ben lomond mountain and mount diablo 74. that's going to be tough to break down. there's just really knows that made at the surface. yes. but not a lot . when you get this much warm air and yesterday it was not
favorites. it was widespread. fairfield annapolis, santa rosa conquered filet of san jose lucas valley cemetery. oh, all between 101. oh, six. santa rosa is one. oh, four, oakland was 98 san francisco 90 to san jose. as we showed one or two today we're bringing those steps down. no problem for oakland, san francisco to get a little bit cooler. the key for san jose, though, is going to be the tropical cloud. look at that. numerous numerous lightning strikes all over the san joaquin valley. fresno down to bakersfield, and some of that cloud cover is beginning to inch into the santa clara valley. now sixties and seventies. on most of the attempts, some areas will be slowed. some areas will not cool off at all, especially if you're well inland. but this moisture is now again. a lot of this is just to the east of us. but boy, it's close. so that's why we're going to mention it for the santa clara valley, also for eastern contra costa that'sg to be very close on some of this cloud cover. a lot of the thunderstorm activity or lightning should stay east. but again, it's so close. we have to
bring it in, at least mentioned it for the forecast today. for this year, it will be lit up. today now, the rain yeah, that's a good thing. the lightning is not that puts everyone on guard here because i just don't want the fires, but there's just too many lightning strikes to ignore. and for the sierra. it's going to be today and tomorrow for us, probably today. seventies eighties nineties to one hundreds. if you add that low cloud deck now the fog is moving up to santa cruz coast, so seabreeze will kick in for some inland. no it'll still be nineties to 100, but should ease up a little bit going into friday. you guys alright, thanks. well, just as summer kicks off, there is now a lifeguard shortage affecting pools and beaches across the country, including here in the bay area. what's driving those numbers coming up and a good night's sleep may be hard to come by for covid long haulers, the latest research on how sleep impact them coming.
in bay area, parents with young children are now able to get them vaccinated against covid-19 . doctors in the bay area started administering those shots yesterday. moderna's vaccine is in two doses for children six months to six years old. pfizer's vaccine is that three dose series of shots for children between the ages of six months and four years old. well many of the people who have recovered from covid infection more than a year ago are still feeling the after effects and that includes difficulty sleeping and new report from the cleveland clinic shows 41% of people themselves long
haulers have mild tosleep distu% reports serious problems with sleep. that's a total of 49% of people with long term side effects reporting sleep issues, doctors say. complaints range from insomnia to fatigue and brain fog. i can see. some of them are improving. he they're asleep issues, but there is no exact data or the literature has to reveal for how long these symptoms are gonna last. well difficulty sleeping can lead to higher anxiety levels and other mental health concerns. experts say the usual suggestions given to everyone on how to sleep better still apply. those are turned on the temperature of the room where you sleep, maybe a little harder these days. go to bed about the same time every night. try to avoid that caffeine in the hours before you go to sleep. the palo alto city council voted to allow an all girls school to expand the city council approved the plan to tear down the old dormitory building at castellana school and reconstructed as classroom. the school will also add an
underground parking garage. once the project is complete, and about three years the school will be able to increase the number of students from 416 to 450. some neighbors of the school say they opposed those expansion plans because they're concerned about increased traffic. well school may be out for some children, and soon many teachers will be walking out of the profession entirely. according to the bureau of labor statistics. they found a 3% drop in teachers from february of 2020. to me of 2022, the national education association says 55% of teachers may leave sooner than planned about 300,000, public teachers and other staff giving up their jobs or going into less stressful jobs. stress factors include staff shortfalls, masks and politics over teaching content and school shootings. well the votes are in americans have chosen the most dependable brands during a crisis will show you if your favorite one made the nation's top five list. and harmful algae blooms found in several spots in the bay area in discovery bait. be specific what

a standoff between officers and a barricaded suspect in san jose . it started in the ov , but we've just learned about the man at the center of it and the violence he's accused of and maintenance crews worked to repair bart train tracks after a train derailed in the east bay. the details on why it may have happened and what commuters can expect this morning. from ktvu. fox two news. this is mornings on two welcome to mornings onto i'm ali rasmus. good morning to you. i'm claudine wong. today is wednesday, june 22nd and although temperatures should drop a bit today, several bay area communities are opening up cooling centers santa clara county offering extended hours at its facilities. sites acting as cooling centers today include libraries and senior centers, the cooling facility at the milpitas sportscenter is opening at six o'clock this morning. for anyone who needs it. most
centers will be open till seven or eight o'clock tonight, and they will also be offering water , snacks and wifi. i always think about it that you know we get work early early early in the morning, and it is it is not even a smidge cold. outside just what are you saying? i'm i'm saying you said cute complaining in the last hour. i'm not complaining, but it'll be a little better coast and bay today it'll be a little better. so not as bad as yesterday. how's that? we'll take it. ah we have a couple of things going on. one is the fog is moving mainly parallel to the coast. it's made it past monterey parts of the santa cruz coast and starting to work its way up towards the san mateo coast right there. that's usually a sure sign that at least most of the coast in the city will call after this is tropical clouds. numerous lightning strikes fresno to bakersfield. some of that could clip the santa clara valley in the east in parts of the east bay. as well today, so plenty going on that will add humidity to the mix for inland taps. so while they may not be
as hot they're going to be on the muggy side clear than fog moves north son, then tropical clouds again. if you're north probably won't matter, but if you're south it will and east. it will so seventies eighties nineties to near 100. alright 7 31 sounds here now, and he's going to talk about the really kind of moderate commute. we're having, steve. we do have slowdowns as we normally do. if you're driving to the bay bridge, for example, you are going to see a slowdown before you make it. onto the span, however, is pretty typical of what we see. san mateo bridge is crowded but not stop and go, and then we have stop and go traffic on highway four and 6 80 when we come back we'll take a little bit more of a look at that east bay and also touch on some of the slowdowns were staying in the silicon valley 7 32, let's go back to the headlines. thank you, sal. let's go back to san jose, where police are still involved in a standoff with the man who barricaded himself in a backyard. this is a live picture of the scene. the man at the center of this barricade is accused of two homicides. same
as a police have surrounded of the homicide suspect at ben dorf drive near asuka avenue. that's not far from eatonville elementary school and highway 101. in this live picture, you see a number of police patrol vehicles parked in the area. their command. vehicle at the end of that street there. people who live in this neighborhood are being told to shelter in place and keep their doors locked. also if you can't avoid it, please avoid this area. if you can. there's crime scene tape criss crossing the streets there. there's also police special operations officers on standby in this neighborhood. now authorities say the barricaded man is wanted for shooting and killing a man last night in san jose, police say. the man then drove to modesto, where he shot and killed a woman and police tracked the man's vehicle as he was driving back to the south bay. they chased it into this particular neighborhood, and police say the man later shot at officers, so some of the people who live in this area have been evacuated, many others being told just stay
indoors. we will be bringing you updates on this standoff in san jose throughout mornings on two well, bart has resumed service between the concord and pleasant hill stations this morning following a train derailment two cars of a 10 car train derailed between the concord and pleasant hill stations yesterday afternoon. cruz didn't work all through the night to remove the derailed train and begin fixing the tracks this morning. bart is going to run trains in both directions, but it will be on one track through that area. so if you need to go through there, you should expect some delays. several passengers did suffer minor injuries, but most people were able to walk away part says it is possible that the severe heat that we experienced yesterday damage that rail and that caused the problem. derailments are rare for transit systems, but they do happen and this we're having no major injuries and not any damage to the opposite track is very good news. again bart says trains are running this morning in both directions between concord and
pleasant hill, but expect delays because the trains are running on that single track to get around the area where the train did derail. firefighters across the bay area responded to several brush fires during yesterday's hot temperatures. two fires broke out in san mateo county and in solano county, a grass fire burned yesterday afternoon at western street in horizon drive. that's in fairfield, near travis air force base. that fire was brought under control within an hour. thankfully firefighters in san jose put out a small fire at a homeless encampment to that fire reported in the area of shallenberger road and oakland road. around 10 30 yesterday morning, firefighters were able to bring it under control by noon. county firefighters battled to brush fires along the ultimate past prompted the closure of lanes in the eastbound direction of 5 80, but crews were able to get both fires. under control. contra costa county health officials are warning people to stay away from blue green algae blooms around discovery bay. now they say large blooms of algae were discovered in several
locations. contact with a toxin produced by those blooms can make people and pets very sick people we talked to say they are disappointed that the water is off limits, but they do understand. that's safety comes first. well i mean, it does suck . we'd like to just have some float days and enjoy the water and we really can't because it's gross. you know, we can still go out boating and stuff, but being able to just enjoy the water. doesn't really happen. well warning signs are up at the marina in discovery bay and people are being advised to stay on the shore and avoid eating fish that's caught in that area . a shortage of lifeguards has created a difficult summertime situation for private and public swimming pools. the american lifeguard association says lifeguard trainers the red cross and the y m c a normally train around 300,000 lifeguards a year to work at local swimming pools . but when the pools were closed during the pandemic there was almost no lifeguard training so many former lifeguards moved on to other pursuits. then the
trump administration paused the popular j one visa program that had permitted foreigners to take temporary summer jobs. even though that visa program has been reinstated. the consequences are still long lasting. we were having to close our outdoor pools for a time because we simply didn't have the lifeguards to manage. all that creaks senior ross more community is short of well trained seasonal lifeguards for its three pools. there's also a shortage of beach lifeguards, but that shortage is not as severe. a new drug sobering center is scheduled to open on monday in san francisco, and it's called the summarize it is located on hayward or howard street in the city south of market neighborhood. the 20 bed facility is going to serve as a safe, clean space where people can get off the streets in detox . they will have access to beds and bathrooms and can stay for 12 hours or longer, if necessary. the center will initially be open daily from eight am until eight pm and then we'll increase its operations to 24 hours a day while it hub is
out with its annual list of the best run cities in the u. s that compares the operating efficiency of 150 of the largest u. s cities to decide which are managed best. san francisco came in at number 1 49 2nd to last the same spot as last year. other bay area cities fared a little better free mine came in at number 76 san jose at 94, oakland at 1 43. as for the best run cities in the country, according to wallet, hub number one is nampa, idaho number to boise, idaho. interesting area people moved to boise over the pandemic. the last couple of years efficiency smaller cities , and, you know, i can tell you though, boy traffic and boise is not great. so yeah. you know, a lot more people from here moving there. it seems right. so let's talk about the bay area traffic on the country. kostic commute because i've been noticing. it's pretty busy if you wanted to know. when the peak of the commute is here. it's right
about now about 7 30. we have slow traffic on four on 6 80 also on 80 coming in from west contra costa county, as you make it the alameda county westbound 5 80. we did have a crash that was cleared over by the richmond bridge. it's a little slow there this morning and we also still have slow traffic approaching. from the altamont pass that we want to let you know about if you're driving in san jose to eighties a little bit slow getting up the highway 17 so it's one on one and 85. but again, these are all within normal parameters of the morning commute. 7 39. let's talk to steve about today's weather. thank you, sal. appreciate that we have a couple of things going on one of them spells cooler. and the other one's supposed tropical clouds here, se birth s out in beautiful panel, not happy about the lightning happy it's cooler here in pain, although i don't think you'll get in on the lightning, but you will get an answer cooler, although it's still 68 warm degrees there. hercules 66 martinez. almost 70 also brought a 67 little cooler. also rito
kensington, a mid sixties for many or seventies, even while the creek at 70 degrees brentwood, pittsburgh are really warm. but that tropical cloud deck is racing northward. there are numerous lightning strikes me, i mean, it is lit up. fresno to bakersfield. also down. i've seen some video from palmdale, southern california, some of that the leading edge of that is beginning to make a move yet, kathleen kenan says, walk up to a nice cool breeze. in the inner richmond this morning. ah and i think that as a west wind there and it's about 58 degrees west i've seen west about 15 miles an hour in the encouragement. more of an anjar breeze in san francisco. by far we're seeing fifties and sixties versus this time yesterday, sixties and seventies. that's a big change. there's your fog. now it's moving up the coast. it looks like it's flirting with santa cruz a little bit but moving up parallel to the san mateo coast. and it's going to eventually start to give them more of a robust sea breeze. so son, then high clouds south and east fog is moving northward. so cooler coast in bay today sixties for
many or some seventies i mean, it's inland temps and higher elevations will be really tough to cool off with all that moisture moving north. i mean, it is a just a heck of a lightning showdown. south look at the cloud cover. it's already racing northwards. so santa clara valley eastern contra costa county, i think around livermore ultimate past stocked and brentwood, antioch. those areas maybe in parts of solano county could get in on some of that cloud cover so tropical clouds coming in thunderstorms. probably dry, dry lightning. we don't want any lightning, but that'd probably be the result. but still there is a possibility of getting some measurable rain out of this more likely, though, to the valley. and also up in the sierra. so this will be with us today into tomorrow. but seventies eighties on the temps and then nineties to one hundred's inland coast and bay started cool down the inland temps will still be pretty warm next couple of days. all right. thank you, steve. well, the technology used in some self driving cars can now be used in devices that help people see coming up. we'll show you how it's helping change the lives of people living with visual impairments. and now

bay. yes there's some fog coming up the coast. well, there's also higher clouds coming up that will paint areas to the south and the east. but the fog is moving up the coast very shallow, but first cmi runs six. she's in fremont. steve i love all our natural air conditioning or think there's 17 visa in there, but fremont should be a little cooler today. already 70 though it may take until this afternoon, but most locations near the coast and in san francisco are getting the impact of now there's fog there. now, most of its parallel to the coast are going up the coast, but that's a sure sign that some cooler temps are on the way for some and in san francisco had many reports of more of a westerly breeze or west south. there's western 15 west at eight. still maybe a little hint of one or two northerly but most of its western northwest and more fifties and sixties. in fact, the official temperatures down eight degrees compared to yesterday at this time, the tropical clouds inland, though i mean, it was hot yesterday today might be more hot and humid, deleting edge of those are making a move areas to the south . and also, the east will
probably only get the clouds looks like thunderstorm activity, but it's close. we'll stay out to the valley, but we'll mention it. so son, then high clouds, mainly south bay and east bed. santa rosa, oakl jose, the heroes starting to come down a little bit here, it's going to be a tough call in this city could be 74 to 78 or even 68 to 78. depending your location. san jose will get the tropical clouds. and then oakland will get more of a sea breeze this afternoon, but the lightning strikes have been numerous from bakersfield to fresno again, mainly parallel or just to the east of five. but look at the leading edge of the higher clouds already moving in towards tracy stockton. so livermore will get in on that later. today will be the santa clara valley. best opportunity. probably hollister's gilroy for any thunderstorm activity. a lot of this will be dry. the what we call dry lightning and we don't want any lightning causes the fires, but there will be some thunderstorms popping up up in the foothills also in the sierra nevada, maybe for us today, i think really, it's just the cloud cover coming in, but that adds humidity to the mix. for san joaquin valley. maybe the sacramento went up in this year. there's going to be some pretty
good thunderstorms. next 24 hours. sixties seventies eighties nineties, still, one hundred's inland. the air aloft is too warm. that is not going to break down. so i think inland terms we're staying pretty toasty here for a while, but coast and they will cool down, you guys. alright thanks, steve. well, this is summer kicks off. there's now a lifeguard shortage that is affecting pools and beaches across the country. and that includes right here in the bay area. we'll tell you what's driving those numbers next. and a good night's sleep may be hard to come back covid long haulers, the latest research and how it

three of them right on me. i was toasting was oakland airport and downtown. we're both 98. usually there's a difference between the two. not yesterday. so yes, it was hot. there's a lot going on here. now for many, it's sunny and you're saying what you're talking about. there's not a cloud in the sky. we'll go east. you'll find them go south and go west. you'll find him and that's what's going on. fog is racing up the coast is going to be cooler for many on the coast, and i think eventually in san francisco, there's already hints of a sea breeze. look at the tropical clouds. higher clouds will start to paint already areas in the east bank. i think santa clara valley and the lightning strikes down here bear watching for the santa clara valley later today and tonight, hollister's gilroy maybe up to morgan hill. so changes today if you're north probably won't matter. but fog moves north. lot of sunshine, tropical clouds cooler coast and bay yet inland or still be hot. it all depends on how much cloud cover you get livermore. if you get the cloud cover, maybe a little. little bit cooler on the temps, but it's still going to be hot and humid. now with the addition of those tropical clouds. alright salles here we've been pretty
good. so far alright or something new. it's been pretty typical. so far. we've had a couple of crashes, but they haven't risen to the level of being major issues. we do have a look at the richmond bridges start off with steve. things have been good here. things have improved as you drive over to moran from the east bay, the bay bridge toll plaza. is getting a little bit better. you can see that it's getting better if you want to wait a little longer, probably in the nine o'clock hour, it'll clear out and the san mateo bridge is much better than it was. it's 8 32. let's go back to the headlines. so thank you. we go to this. now we're standoff is now over between san jose police and a person wanted for killing two people. just before eight this morning, san jose police say officers shot at the suspect, who they say pointed a gun at them. police had been in an hours long standoff at bender drive and as a car avenue that's not far from edenvale elementary and highway 11. now this we're looking at here is a live picture from the scene. that neighborhood there was all this activity was happening could still see a police presence there. authorities say the person who was shot was wanted for shooting
and killing a man last night. in san jose. police say the suspect , then drove to modesto, where they say he shot and killed a 29 year old woman. police track the suspect's vehicle as it remains way back to the south beach and eventually chased it into this neighborhood. our crews, son ambulance leaving the scene. police said the suspect was taken to a local hospital. abbott has resumed service between the concord and the pleasant hill stations this morning following a trail derailment. two cars of a 10 car train derailed between the concord and the pleasant hill station has happened yesterday afternoon. cruz did work overnight to remove that derailed train, and then they started trying to fix those tracks this morning. bart is running trains in both directions. but this is happening on a single track to that area, so you should expect some delays. it's not business as usual. several passengers in this derailment suffered minor injuries, but fortunately, most people were able to walk away. bart says it is possible that severe heat yesterday damaged
that rail and that that caused the problem. derailments are rare for transit systems, but they do happen and this we're having no major injuries and not any damage to the opposite track is very good news. again bart says trains are running this morning in both directions between concord and pleasant hill, but do expect delays because those trains are running on that single track to get around that area where repairs are being made and where that train derailed. our firefighters across the bay area responded to several brush fires during yesterday's hot weather. two fires broke out in san mateo county and in solano county. a grass fire burned yesterday afternoon at the western street and horizon drive area in fairfield, near travis air force base. that fire was brought under control. within an hour. now, crews in san jose put out a small fire at a homeless encampment. that fire was reported in the area of shellenberger road in oakland road around 10 30 tuesday morning. firefighters were able to bring it under control by new
well, contra costa county health officials are warning people to stay away from blue green algae blooms around discovery bay. they say those large blooms of algae were discovered in several locations. contact with a toxin produced by the blooms can make people and pets very sick and people we talked to say while they are disappointed that the water is off limits, they do understand that safety comes first. i mean, it does suck. we'd like to just have some float days and enjoy the water and we really can't because it's gross. you know, we can still go out boating and stuff, but being able to just enjoy the water. doesn't really happen. warning signs are up at the marina and discovery bay. people are being advised to stay on shore and avoid eating fish caught in the area. shortage of lifeguards has created a difficult summertime situation for private and public swimming pools. the american lifeguard association says lifeguard trainers the red cross and normally train about 300,000 lifeguards a year at local swimming pools. but when the pools were closed during the
pandemic, there was almost no lifeguard training. so many former lifeguards moved to newer pursuits. and then the trump administration policy popular j one visa that permitted foreigners to take temporary summer jobs, even though it has been reinstated. the consequences are long lasting, though. we were having to close our outdoor pools for a time because we simply didn't have the lifeguards to manage. one the greeks senior ross more community center is short of well trained seasonal lifeguards for its three pools. there is also a shortage of beach lifeguards, but it's not as severe a new drug sobering center is scheduled to open on monday and san francisco it's called summarize. it is located on howard street in the city south of market neighborhood. it is a 20 bed facility that will serve as a safe and clean space where people can get off the streets and detox. they will have access to beds and two bathrooms and can stay for 12 hours or longer, if necessary. the center is initially going to be open daily from eight am

other locations so this will be l fairly toes 12th restaurants, some of which are named el favor, rito. and starbucks is kicking off summer with some new items that you will notice on the menu. the latest edition is the pineapple passion, fruit refresher and the paradise drink refreshers. the paradise drink includes coconut milk. another item on the menu, chicken, maple butter and egg sandwiches. cookies and cream cake pop. have also been added to the menu. need it definitely gonna need it because it's uh it's gonna be hard. i know we keep saying it, but it's just it's just ridiculous. sweating sitting in your house official hold on just a yeah, yeah, it's done chatting earlier. where are you from? oh that's true. okay i grew up in miami and the humidity is like 150 is. yeah that's why i moved here, though. that's why the complaining. we're on a roll. you have been front and centerne
don't have the humidity, although some inland could get a little hint of that with the tropical clouds coming in. but for the if you're inland it's still going to be really hard falls out in antioch 80 in the shade at dallas ranch middle school in antioch this morning. i believe it. because i've seen not only 80 degrees 81 in brentwood. some locations are running a little cooler, though . in fact, if you go around mountain view hayward san carlos oakland airport as of oh, half moon bay, they're running cooler. yeah livermore and conquered or running plus six two plus four santa rosa plus three, so i the key is going to be that the tropical clouds making georgia crazy and el cerrito 100. that's hot for anybody. that's hot for l. streeto. 81 at midnight, but then the southeast breeze kicked in and now currently 64 degrees yesterday summer heat, not just inland. it was for everyone here. fairfield napa, santa rosa conquered vallejo, san jose, lucas valley, san mateo, all between 101. oh, six. but look at the fog. it is racing up the
coast, so it'll be cooler there. there's also a sea breeze for many in the city. but all eyes for the areas to the east and the south are on this tropical moisture screaming up with numerous lightning strikes being reported already, especially between bakersfield and fresno. now we're probably going to be okay with thunderstorm wise, but it's going to be very close. i would think santa clara valley hollister gilroy, maybe out towards stockton's, uh, antioch , brentwood. i'll mention that the higher clouds are already moving in. this might take your temp down a little bit, but it's going to add humidity sort of be hot and muggy. tropical clouds. possible thunderstorms dry lightning. that's what we don't want it that's already showing up to the valley, not only in the valley but also into the sierra. today probably today is the main day for us, but it will continue into the valley in the sierra nevada today and also again tomorrow. so if you're north, you probably don't worry about it. but if you're south and east definitely clouds on the way, 60 seventies eighties nineties cooler coast in bay still hot kind of muggy inland over the next couple of days. art steve. thank you, well,

started the day down, almost 400 points so we might see a little bit more of a roller coaster today. the s and p 500 up a quarter of a percent. the nasdaq up about a half of a percent right now, goldman sachs has new requirements for its workers. they must take at least three weeks of vacation per year. starting next year. psychologists say, historic resignation levels and the emotional burnout from never being able to leave work as more people work from home. have led to people feeling uncomfortable taking time off. they say that's causing excessive stress, which can then cause a mental health crisis. more companies are now shutting down for a week or two during the holidays, like many tech companies have done for years to force vacation time, and some companies are now requiring people to take one week of vacation each quarter that required time off. is making people feel less guilty about stepping away from their jobs for a few days. don't feel guilty. take the time off as americans stocked up on many things during the pandemic, most
turned to certain brands as the ones they trust the most. if you are stuck on band aids, you are not alone. band aid is the most trusted brand in the us number two is lysol, followed by oakland based clorox, both selling a wide range of disinfectant products people stocked up on those the last two years. fourth was ups the delivery service, also especially busy during the covid shutdowns. when many stores are closed, people did not head out of their homes and fifth cvs pharmacies where many people went. for those covid vaccines, rounding out the top 10 of the most trusted brands in the u. s visa, cheerios, the weather channel, colgate and home depot. and the biden administration siding with the pork industry against a california law that sets minimum standards for cages used to hold pigs, hens and calves. proposition 12 bans the sale in california of meat products from animals that are held in smaller cages. the justice department says the law interferes with interstate
commerce. it's asking the supreme court to reinstate a pork producers lawsuit against proposition 12. in a filing to the court, the department's lawyers said california has no legitimate interest in protecting the welfare of animals located outside the state. those in favor of prop 12 argue that protecting the welfare of animals everywhere should be everyone's concern. pam cook, that's look at your dollars and cents. thank you. at first glance, this next story would feel like a florida story, but it's not from michigan. a man there says he's feeling stressed because he's missing. his pet alligator, karen she sleeps right with me like a puppy dog. yeah so this all started when police tried to stop joshua applebaum for speeding. earlier this month, applebaum led police on a chase, eventually crashing his car. karen was in the car and police gave her to an animal rescue group. well, that group refused to give karen back to applebaum, saying she's better off with them. she is in our large
alligator exhibit. um she is with three other alligators were not willing to mistakenly put one of our alligators in a homeless situation running from the police living in a car. the two sides say they are willing to go to court to settle this matter. okay there you go. i know you speechless. not really sure what to say. i can understand why about lots to say about our traffic south. yes i do have a lot to say pam claudine. claudine and andrew. right now things are getting better around the bay area. i like what i see. let's go right to the bay bridge. i told you it was getting better. and if you want to wait a little longer it could get even better than that because things are beginning to improve, so we have kind of a nice wednesday, especially compared to what we had yesterday. salmon tail bridge. this is a look at highway four. you can see that highway four is much better. 6 80 still a little bit slow from concord to walnut
creek and five eighties a little slow as you drive into the dublin interchange, 49. let's bring steve back with today's weather. all right, sal. it'll be cooler coast in bay. it will still be hot inland here for many south still there. higher clouds are already moving in san jose areas to the east, and fog is moving up the coast so there's a lot of different forecast highs today. believe me, it could be a big difference. just you know, maybe half a mile away sixties in berkeley and oakland sixties now the city's cooler than that. sixties seventies brothers yet eighties. for some, i mean, it's going to be a big spread more so than yesterday conquered livermore running warmer than yesterday at this time, yet oakland airport, hayward also mountain view san carlos, sfo and half of it or running cooler. and the reason being fog is screaming up the coast yet it's mainly staying off the coast. but the mere fact that it's there and the wind has turned a little more wesley means they will see some cooler conditions. a lot of high clouds are already moving in most of the thunderstorm activity and big time lightning strikes, which is not what we want. this
definitely increases fire concerns because it's dry. lightning has been out to the valley, but some of that could creep in. more towards the santa clara valley. maybe santa cruz mountains also out towards eastern contra costa county. later today, higher clouds are already out to the east and also and towards san jose, and they are moving fast. and you can see those moving, and so that might take the temperatures down a little bit inland, but it will still be adding now humidity to the mix. it'll be hot and humid. yet the coast will cool off and i think a breeze will kick in for much of the bay as well. it's just unbelievably challenging in this pattern. but tropical clouds east fog to the west in between. if you're north, you probably have to worry about because i'll be sunny and hot. some locations will not cool off in this pattern. others will some will get thunderstorms out to the valley and also up in the mountains next couple of days. sixties seventies eighties nineties to one hundred's. it's just i mean, if you're near the coaster bait, you'll cool off. if you're inland, it's still going to be pretty hot, but you'll have a lot of tropical clouds as well. well heartbreaking story with a happy ending. coming up at the nine.
