12:14 pm
storm could make landfall the eye of the storm within the next hour or so. the eye is just about 20 miles west of fort myers and punta gorda, florida. theresa beginning to come down and stop signs are flying in the ford myers area. we'll continue to follow this story for you and bring you the very latest swing out to wall street now because look, we haven't seen numbers like this in a while. wall street is rallying toward its first gain and more than a week dow jones is up almost two full percentage point gain right at 29,700 plus gaining 566 points s and p is just over that 2% gain. nasdaq is up by more than 2% as well. new at noon. governor newsom is in san francisco this afternoon where he's helping to take action against our state's housing crisis. the governor as well as state, local and housing and labor leaders at the future site of an affordable housing development in the city's richmond district, governor, newsom signed a bill package to build more housing across our state. he says the bills will accelerate the construction of new housing and create thousands of new jobs. and this is a
12:15 pm
moment on a journey to reconcile the original sin. the original sin of the state of california, and that's the issue of housing and affordability. it touches more things in more ways on more days than any other issue. it is at the core of the expression of so much they frustration many of us have about our state and our future. the governor also announced $1.2 billion in funding for 30 shovel ready projects around the state. financing for those projects had been stalled because they were unable to obtain tax credits. we continue to follow the latest surrounding ian right now, this is what it looked like in tampa bay this morning when the water receded in the bay as the storm moved in, it left the waterway along bayshore boulevard practically dry now, just to give you an idea based or boulevard, you can equate it to something like the embarcadero. it's very popular area where people walk and there are several multi million dollar homes just to where you saw that that bridge that walking area there and this is not unusual for it to happen when a storm brews out in the ocean to suck that water out, it will still
12:16 pm
come back in, but they do more people stay off that little walking path right there because the storm water can come in pretty savagely and carry you out to see that is a danger of what people are for. they're facing they're telling people now not to walk in that area. as we said, with that water receding there, vice people not to go down there at all. it's pretty muddy and disgusting. at this point, we turn things over to meteorologist mark tamayo mark. we understand the storm just made landfall just moments ago. yeah, that's right within the within the past few minutes, chiyoko sto. have you, andre? you familiar with that? that that island i guess to the west of fort myers? i'm not familiar with that one. that's one of the smaller, probably islands. okay yeah, that was the official. location making landfall from the national hurricane center that actually happened, 12 05 our time with winds of 150 miles an hour, so there you can't see the major hurricane coming on board a category four and we're talking about a landfall right now, and we talked about this earlier. the concern is it's going to slow down and so as a result, right now we have the catastrophic storm surge. but over the next 12 hours, even 24
12:17 pm
hours. we're talking about relentless rainfall and some very strong winds. but just to the west of fort myers, a small island called the kaio coast up a landfall that happened at 12 05. our time will continue to have more updates with this major hurricane. these are actually the highest from yesterday across the region as we transition to the bay area, whether but the highest, um, yesterday kind of like the highest from today. no big changes out there. here's a satellite where you can't see we had some fog out there this morning, still pulling back to near the immediate coastline and current numbers out there. san francisco 61 seventies for napa , concord, walnut creek, san jose 72 palo alto in the upper sixties 68 degrees. here's a live camera. but san francisco where you have lots of sunshine looking out toward the east bay hills, but also still some patchy cloud cover near portions of the coastline and right around the bay. so for today, it's mild. tonight's the stereo . high pressure wants to build in for thursday and friday. this will lead to a minor warming trend by friday. that should be the hottest day of the week. and
12:18 pm
that means the warmest occasions will be approaching. at least the low nineties, maybe getting close to the mid nineties as well. for today, though some patchy coastal fogs and fair skies and temperatures ranging from the sixties seventies and some eighties as we mentioned a little bit of a warm up, though, by by thursday and friday, take a look at the numbers for today. still some patchy overcast for pacific up oakland 72 this afternoon three months 74 some eighties for concord, livermore , an anti aachen san jose 76 degrees. here's a look ahead, your five day forecast and a nice quiet weather pattern for us, especially when you compare the weather. unfortunately that's what's happening in the florida right now with that, with that major, hurricane moving onshore for us, we will warm up those numbers by friday and then into the weekend, a minor drop off in those numbers, so warming up a little bit over the next couple of days and then cooling off into the weekend that should continue. into early next week. we'll have another update on the landfall of hurricane ian with with more than your forecast in a few minutes. thank you, warning surrounding a growing trend involving rainbow fentanyl. how

coming up today at four. some members of civil rights groups are furious that dozens of alameda county sheriff's deputy scored poorly on psychological exams but were allowed to stay on the job. ktvu crime reporter henry lee has more on what led to the crackdown by the sheriff. fallout after revelations that the alameda county sheriff's office improperly hired 47 deputies who had done poorly on psychological evaluations. 30 deputies based at santa rita, jail in dublin and 17, others assigned other duties, including patrol were stripped of their weapons and peace officer powers. one deputy has since been reinstated, but the others are now on limited duty out of uniform and won't be in contact with the inmates until they're given the chance to undergo a second psych exam. ktvu obtained this memo sent to jail staff from the sheriff's captain. it reads in part, i want to make it clear these deputies in question have done nothing wrong. we know these people and work alongside them. they have done great work for the sheriff's office and our community. it's hard to shock my conscience anymore. all the
12:37 pm
atrocities that i've seen at santa rita jail and followed, but this really takes it over the top. jose bernal is organizing director at the l. a baker center for human rights. he's also spent some time in jail. the sheriff's office chose to turn a blind eye at the expense of the general, public and incarcerated individuals. this is horrifying, absolutely horrifying. some say the controversy, especially concerning because dozens of inmates have died at santa rita jail while under the custody of deputies. they questioned whether any mentally ill inmates were abused or mistreated by deputies who themselves had psychological issues not properly hired and not proper fit to do their job. we can't trust them to do those things, we can't rely when anything, they said. county public defender brendan woods is asking for the names of the deputies involved to go back and look at the case. they've been involved in and see if they provided any sort of testimony were critically involved in the case if they were in those cases really should be dismissed or reversed. the public defender tells me hiring these deputies
12:38 pm
with poor psych exam results will be like him hiring attorneys who hadn't passed the bar now both the sheriff's administration and the union representing deputies say they are hopeful that these deputies will regain full peace officer status once they get a second psych exam. henry lee ktvu, fox two news francisco police are still searching for a man who swung an ax at a munich bus driver. the driver says he heard an argument on the bus in a short time later, man approached the front of that bus with that ex police say the transparent shield installed to protect operators from covid gave some protection for the driver as that meant swung that x investigators say right now they do not have enough information to make an arrest, though it's important that we have witnesses come forward if they see an incident that's important, too. but nothing beats surveillance video and us being able to actually see what occurred. officials say the bus operator was not hurt. police have not released a description of the suspect or any possible video from inside the bus. study shows more california teachers have a
12:39 pm
negative outlook about their profession now compared to the start of the pandemic. 77% of the nearly 5000 teachers asked they things are worse now than they were in march of 2020 back at that time, 45% said they had negative feelings about continuing their work as teachers. in the current survey teachers who are considering leaving site burnout, stress and political pressure as the top reasons, one teacher said the most challenging aspect of the job now is managing student behavior in the classroom. school districts across our state are still waiting for testing data from last school year. the state is pushing back the release of that information until sometime next month. schools say they need those results to take advantage of federal funds related to covid learning loss. some say the delay is because the results show another year of below average testing, and that wouldn't reflect well on state superintendent tony thurman. who is running for reelection. the department of education originally said the scores would be delayed until after the election, but now says they'll be out next month. the biden administration says they're
