6:10 am
but this latest event was quite small. >> the motion itself was rather short-lived. and so it just -- so the fault moved briefly and then stopped. so it generated sort of a -- it would generate more of a pulse. >> reporter: there were no reports of injuries and at j & l market, only a few items got knocked off the shelves. but it made for lively conversation for the rest of the day. >> well, they walk in the door and go, did you feel that! >> reporter: and for everyone else, the quake was a reminder that the big one could come at any time. >> i always try to have, you know, cases of water bottles in my garage and, you know, stuff -- try to be prepared as much as you can. >> reporter: the 3.3 quake was originally reported as magnitude 3.6. in crockett, lilian kim, abc 7 news. >> got my earthquake kit somewhere at home. have to try to dig it out. >> that's right. good morning. we're looking at a pretty nice sunrise out there. the sun coming up another 30 minutes or so.

some scary moments for passengers on a roller coaster in illinois. this is one of my nightmares. the ride at six flags great america was making its initial ascent when suddenly it stopped moving yesterday afternoon. the amusement park says the coaster's safety sensors halted the ride. everyone got off safely. no one was hurt. park officials say it is unclear why that ride million functioned. it's now closed for inspection. berkeley police officers will soon be equipped with narcan to help treat opioid oversere on how to properly use narcan, which can be administered
6:15 am
nasally. 115 americans die every day from opioid overdoses. narcan can reverse the life-threatening effects of an overdose. the department is expected to start carrying narcan soon. san francisco police and some other jurisdictions already have it. if you're a pg&e customer, you may end up having to pay if the utility company is found liable in a wildfire. it's all in a bill now on the governor's desk. abc 7 news reporter, leslie brinkley, takes a look at what's at stake. >> reporter: sb-901 passed both houses late friday night. the controversial part of the bill addresses the 2017 california wildfires, including those that burned in the north bay. cal fire investigators determined that 11 of the fires were caused by pg&e. they have turned those cases over to the corresponding d.a.'s offices. pg&e could be on the hook for millions, even billions, in damages. >> we what we voted on last
6:16 am
night was to allow pg&e, if they are negligent and if they can't afford today to pay that liability, we'll pass that cost on to rate payers. make them pay for it. so before we know what pg&e's liability is, we've already given them a bailout. and that's wrong. >> reporter: after the vote, pg&e issued a statement, calling the bill a common sense solution that puts the needs of wildfire victims first and ultimately protects electric customers. the bipartisan bill was designed to keep pg&e from going bankrupt over payouts to fire victims. it puts the california public utilities commission in charge of deciding when rate payers kick in money. >> they're going to have to do a complete fiscal analysis, independent of pg&e, and no money comes from rate payers until pg&e pays the maximum amount that they can pay and still remain in busine. >> reporter: sb-901 also puts
6:17 am
money toward streamlining forestry management. the rate payer liability in sb-901 only applies to the 2017 wildfires. 2018 and beyond, liability reverts to pg&e shareholders. i'm leslie brinkley, abc 7 news. now, your accuweather forecast with lisa argen. >> hi, everyone. sunday morning waking up to some typically cool conditions. patchy fog, certainly at the shoreline. but not reaching as far inland. we have a bit of a warmup on the way, but it's going to take a had the on our air quality. haze back in the forecast today. live doppler 7 showing the stratus right along the coast and reaching over into oakland and san pablo bay. that will retreat and allow for a lot of sun today. take a look at mt. tam, where it looks pretty nice out there. the sun coming up in another 25 minutes or so. and temperatures slightly warmer in the far north bay today. right now it is 56 in san
6:18 am
francisco with 57 mountain view in san jose. oakland checking in at 58. and a hazy shot from our east bay hills camera. and a northerly push today. we're going to bring that moderate air quality back. you may have noticed it yesterday. it hasn't been ideal. but it hasn't been horrible, either, where we have a spare of the air alert. just kind of on the edge there, where we're looking at the north bay fire. some of that smoke and the pollutants trapped at the surface due to the high pressure building on in today and tomorrow. 51, santa rosa. 50 in novato. mid 50s in livermore. here is a look at sutro. in the distance there, looks a bit hazy. so patchy coastal fog. a little bit hazy around the bay, particularly in the north bay today. and feeling more like summer today and tomorrow with 90s arriving inland. the typical summer spread, about a 30-degree spread. and as we look at the low cloud deck throughout the afternoon, it gets wiped pretty clean from the coast. it comes back tonight. if you're an early riser for the holiday, it's barely there, and
6:19 am
then once again, it will be evaporating mostly throughout the shoreline, and that means more sun for your labor day. into tuesday, high clouds and the fog still at the shoreline. so it's into that pattern that we'll stay. and for your beach forecast, mid 60s, ocean beach, half moon bay and about 70 in santa cruz. so a little bit more fog there, down along the central coast. and we'll be looking at sunshine today. afternoon game at the coliseum, the mariners still in town with low to mid 70s today. pretty nice out there, but seems like we're getting used to that atmosphere and the haze around. with that north wind, that's kind of the tradeoff. a bit of a warmup today. 83, morgan hill. 80 in santa clara. on the peninsula, the sea breeze will keep you comfortable with mid 70s from mt. view. and in san francisco, upper 60s today. shy of the average. north bay numbers, low to mid 80s. as you head far north, you see the 90s and continue to feel the
6:20 am
warmth from lake port to clover dale. east bay numbers, low to mid 70s. san leandro, 74. cavity tr castro valley, 70. upper 80s here today, so a pretty typical summer afternoon. if you're planning tomorrow, well, it looks about the same with temperatures in the 50s by midday. 60s and 70s around the bay at the coast and hot inland. the accuweather seven-day forecast, looking at today and tomorrow, very similar. probably just a bit warmer tomorrow. you can down load our app, very subtle changes for tuesday. and then the slightly cooler weather takes hold wednesday, thursday and then into next weekend. >> wasn't this time last year we were roasting? >> yeah, that was something else. i like to forget that. >> this is much better. thank you, lisa. there is a new app that could make it easier to get your kids to do their chores. it's called busy kid. 7 on your side's michael finney shows us how it works. >> reporter: 11-year-old mia
6:21 am
hahn takes out the trash. she's fairly honest about how she feels about it. >> it's not the funnest thing in the world, but i'll do it if i have to. >> reporter: big brother nicholas, pretty much felt the same way. then his parents told him about busy kid. the app lists a variety of chores, including cleaning up after the pet rabbit. money is transferred into the child's account after a parent confirms the task is completed. >> i can either use it and get money with it, or not use it and don't get money. so i just took the obvious answer. >> reporter: in a few months, nicholas says he's earned $150. the 14-year-old is looking forward to saving money to buy his first car. greg mercer is ceo of busy kid and the father of six children. >> i really wanted to give them the skills to get out of my house and never come back. except to visit once in a while. >> reporter: he compares the app to a child's first job with direct deposit. money is deposited into three
6:22 am
baskets. savings, sharing and spending. mia and nicholas' mom loves the idea. >> my best hope for this app was that the kids would be responsible for taking care of their own chores without us constantly reminding them. >> reporter: mia is most excited about the opportunity to invest in the stock market. busy kid allows kids to invest in partial shares, starting at $20. there's no commission until the stock has sold. mia invested in apple. her $20 investment has grown to $25. >> over time, you earn the money if the stock goes up. and then if you lose some, i guess -- you get less money? >> reporter: dad says the app doesn't respond to commands as fast as he would like, but says overall, it's a great motivator for kids. >> what we like about it is the aspect of a financial education for our kids. this is something that the school doesn't really teach about.
6:23 am
>> reporter: busy kids charges an annual fee of $14.95 per family. there's also a fee of $5 for each debit card. i'm michael finney, 7 on your side. coming up, expect company if you're shopping the sales this labor day weekend. the mall offering a ♪ ♪ you are many different things in one amazing package, and t.j.maxx gives you the freedom to express every one. with our unique mix of must-have brands at must-buy prices,
