temperatures create a potential for fire.but as the chief here tells me.. they are ready.christopher landry/chief, oakland fire departmentit's all about preparedness. when they form up, we have those fine engines available. we are first getting on the same communication plan so we are all communicating and we are ready to respond to any emergency. all angencies in the area know that these resources are available to them in the event that that incident occurs. we are prepositining resources throughout the region so that we are better prepared to respond to those emergencies we found that if we are better prepared we have additional resources. we can mitigate those emergencies when they are in their small or incipient phase.(hermela aregawi)the redflag warning starts tonight at 11 and goes through monday morning at 9. these strike teams may stick around until then or even longer depending on weather conditions. reporting live in oakland hermela aregawi kron 4 news.

(philippe) a year ago...
this wasn't possible. a community gathering at shiloh ranch regional park in windsor... with kids running around -- and, creating art. the park was leveled during the tubbs fire that also caused more than a billion dollars in damages, killing almost two dozen people... and, destroyed thousands of homes.celeste decker/neighbor- "it is regrowing. you know, i spend a lot of time in this park, because it's near my home and having seen it gone from ash and trees falling to now green and it looks really nice. so, it's nice to be able to come out here together."nats- "how was that?" celeste decker's twins met fire fighters who helped save their home less than a mile and a half away from the park, and thank them for their efforts. celeste decker/neighbor- "we were quarter of a mile from the edge. we left at 2 a.m. in the dark with no power and smoke in the air in our pajamas." sonoma county regional parks hosted this community healing event to give neighbors a chance to swap horror stories and also celebrate their resilience. bethany facendini/sonoma county regional parks- "and, it's a reflection of how not only the landscape recovering through the seasons, but we are also doing our own healing and recovering." peter phibbes is an artist-in- residence at the paradise ridge winery in santa rosa, which burned down during the fires.peter phibbes/artist- "i've been going around to all these people that lost everything. maybe they have a burnt tree left over that are going to get cut up. instead,
i turn it into a scultpure. it helps my healing even though i didn't lose a home, i lost all my materials and tools -- whatever. i'm not six feet under. i'm alive. everyday's the best day ever. so, if i could help these people out heal as well, this whole thing comes full-circle." the healing process continues with every passing day... and, that'll be the case long after the one-year anniversary. still requiring the heroic mindset and actions that have inspired this community to rebuild. in sonoma county, philippe djegal, kron four news.

(jrs) there are there are several big events going on here in the bay area this weekend including fleet week with a performance by the blue angels.

kelly explains the traffic hurdles people coming in and out of the city will have to deal with. hellman hollow was already crowded early friday afternoon with people rocking out here at the eclectic music festival .... it's hardly strictly bluegrass.....featuring a variety of acts spread over the six stages and three days is there a greater place to get together for free than quarter of a million people of your friends to see great music the bay area sky is the stage where the blue angels will perform.....with estimated one million expected to come witness their amazing aerobatics.but those travelling have a few extra hurdles do deal with including the traffic mess caused by the transbay center's cracked beams that has fremont street closed between mission and howard....now complicated by the overnight closure of first street. that confluence of events has the san francisco department of emergency management tweeting out a warning for people attending either big event to give themselves extra time....and take public transporation if possible. but one form of public transit is adding it's own wrinkle to this. caltrain is closing down it's two san francisco stops north of bayshore on weekends through spring of next year so they can do work inside four of their tunnels to get ready for electification. their goal is for 75% of it's fleet to be electic trains by 2022...which will be faster, able to carry more passenger on top of being
greener. a bus bridge will carry passengers in to the 22nd street and 4th and king stops..but some passengers wonder why now? (bob bullock, rode in for fleet week)they chose this weekend to close caltrain so you have to take a bus into from bayshore...nah they could have taken any other weekend but this one. (dan liberman, caltrain ultimately there is no good weekend to close down caltrain there's always a lot of stuff going on. the real goal is to get done by the time the giants season starts because there is ceratinly a lot of demand on our weekend trains. that said the bus bridge is still going to get people up here and you can do to our website and see other transit options if that makes things easier for you.whether you are headed to the city for the roar of the blue angels....or the sweet sounds of hardly strictly bluegrass.... leave early. maureen kelly kron4 news.

sounds weird saying that. the raiders won their first game of the year last week and a win on sunday would show people that they are building something. a loss would show them it's likely to be a very long season. here are some things to keep in mind when we talk raiders. marshawn lynch had perhaps his best game in the silver and black uniform last week. look for the raiders to keep going to him. jon gruden says we just keep feeding him skittles. also look at the raiders defense in the second half. they have given up 20 or more points in each of the 2nd halfs of their first four games. one of just two teams to do that in nfl history. and watch out for philip rivers, the chargers are 16 and 9 when he starts for them against the raiders. kickoff starts at 1:05 sunday. (j.r.) the san francisco 49ers will be in action at levi's stadium against arizona on sunday. the two teams are a combined 1 and 7 on the
season. i checked stubhub prices and as of saturday afternoon....cheapest ticket was 30 bucks to go to the game. obviously jimmy garoppolo is out for the season with an acl injury. c.j. beathard will be at the helm again sunday. he said this week, "there is no doubt in my mind that we can make the playoffs." a lot of 49ers fans might already be counting them out but beathard played hard last week and with a lot of guys injured he stood in there and threw for about 300 yards. here's something to keep in mind over the past three seasons the niners have lost six straight games to the cardinals. also matt brieda is the nfl's third leading rusher this season and he was given the ball just 9 times last week and thrown at three times. look for him to be more involved. also keep in mind the niners may be without their starting cornerbacks which include richard sherman. we shall see. kickoff starts at 1:25 sunday. (j.r.) baseball playoffs underway....unfortunatley no more athletics and no giants.
a's didn't win the division because of this team. the houston astros. taking on the indians. cleveland got a jump on things early today though. francisco lindor. good bye, good day, see yaaaa that ball is gone. indians up 1 to nothing. houston we have a problem. marwin gonzalez says it's okay. i got this...doubles to right field. two runners are coming around. two runs would score. 2 to 1 houston with the lead. to the seventh we go. alex bregman...at the plate and he says good bye. houston goes on to win this game 3 to 1. they now take a two to zero lead in the five game series. (j.r.)now to the upset of the now to the (j.r.)now to the
the 49ers use one word to describe their new starting quarterback..tough.... cj beathard is fighting through the adversity -- even as the niners let one slip away last sunday....--and the injuries continue to plague this team... its the unfortunate part that comes with the game...can the 49ers find a way to respond...they will need that toughness this week as the cardinals come to town for division matchup.. it's time for the red and gold zone yes...we are back here at levi's stadium....welcome in , i'm your host, kim smith... now the 49ers are still searching for their next win...but it doesn't help when the injuries just continue to pile up... we'll take a look at more key losses this week... but first-- it was cj beathard's turn to take the reigns and try and lead
