6:22 am
...besides arnie. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there's limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, i tried warfarin, but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto®. nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures.
6:23 am
before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto® is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto®... ...was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. >> dan harris joins us from new york to tell us what is coming up on "good morning america." you caught me a the off-guard. i'm hopping into my chair as we speak. we will start with the break news. the strongest hurricane ever known to hit the western hemisphere slamming into mexico

midnight around austin and waco, texas. some isolated counties have picked up 15 to 17 inches and more is expected. in fact, with so much juice in the atmosphere, anywhere from 2 to 4 inches an hour is possible. and this is not even tapped into what was hurricane patricia yet. that's still to come. it's weakening very, very quickly over the mountains of mexico. it went from nearly 200 miles an hour to 50 miles an hour in just 24 hours. so right now a live look outside. our roof camera. so dark out there. the sunlight come up in another 35 or 40 minutes. and next weekend we fall back. 51 in morgan hill. 57 in half moon bay. and from our roof camera right now we have clouds with low 50s santa rosa. still upper 40s by the delta and novato. and sutro hooking pretty dark but good visibility. fog and high clouds this morning with a mild fall day on tap. a few sprinkles possible in the
6:49 am
morning. then we get back into partly cloudy skies. high pressure hanging out for another day. a few clouds around and the ridge weakens tomorrow as we tap into some of this moisture that was from a hurricane. as you wake up tomorrow, a few isolated sprinkles and then we get into more sunshine by your sunday afternoon. there's another chance of rain come midweek. this is what is headed our way for the middle of the week. this is hurricane ohaf and it continues to weaken as it heads into the cooler waters. but it's going to getten trained in some of the moisture that's dropping off from a system to the north and west of us. that could paint a wet picture come tuesday into wednesday with anywhere from perhaps a quarter up. to maybe a half-inch of rain. the models really not too sure with this system. we will watch it for you. cloudy in the sierra. warm in southern california, 90 there. if you look at the week ahead in san jose, we are cooler tomorrow and cooler by wednesday. high temperatures in the upper 70s.

6:51 am
the royals hoped to close it out last night at home and not deal with a game seven. price didn't get off to a good start. bottom of the first. zobrist drilled it off price for his second postseason homer. and this is crushed. check out the fan with the black glove. did the fan reach over to grab it? they will review it. if he did, it should have been a fair ball. the call stands. 2-1 k.c. and joey bats. jose bautista, that's his fourth postseason homer. tied at 3. bottom of 8. rain delay 41 minutes. play resumes and they get the load off man aboard. then the bloop to right. lorenzo cain, he can fly. he isn't stopping. rounding third base. play at the plate and he's easily safe. 4-3 k.c. top of 9, blue jays. two on. second and third, two out. josh donaldson. wade davis gets him on the ground ball.

6:53 am
that's unacceptable. that's not what we are going to do. that's not who we are. it's not what we are about. so we are going to fix it. >> and the bad news just keeps on coming. pro bowl safety antawn tore his pectoral muscle and is out the remainder of the season. a rookie will replace him. wide receiver jerome simpson was suspended for the first six games of the season and he will take the spot on the 53 man roster. we have complete highlights from the stanford game. stanford is playing washington and we will have that on after the game around 8:30 p.m.. following number one ohio state and rutgers here on abc7. have a great weekend, everybody. i'm larry beil. some early halloween fun in the east bay this weekend where kids are encouraged to wear their costumes for a jack-o'-lantern jamboree.
