now called off. and moved. >> yes, that group, patriot prayer, had been planning it, says san francisco city leaders are to blame. their plan b is what we showed at alamo square. and this news conference, they don't need a permit to actually be there. but it is something that needs preparation. >> and now the mayor says despite the move and the change, all han -- hands still on deck for both the police and everyone in the city. mayor ed lee says quote we do not trust this group. but of course, the other big story down in texas, hurricane harvey, a live shot there of galveston. as it is pounding the coast. now inland. it has now made land fall and residents are facing a rather long weekend of weather. >> we know it is the strongest hurricane to hit the united states in more than a decade and it went from a four to a one, but that doesn't mean they are out of the woods by any stretch. so we will talk about the path of damage, the response, and rosemary this morning, for you keeping an eye on things and how it is affect can the folks and flights from the bay area,
and also, we've got heat here, so you've been busy. >> we're all busy. yes, yes. >> i had somebody tweet me just yet and saying the raiders are playing in dallas today. is the game going to go on? and i said i think so. they have isolated thunderstorms a possibility but it is slight. i think the game will go on for the raiders and dallas for today. meanwhile, here at home, we are dealing with a big heat-up. in fact, we have advisories to talk about. starting with a live look outside, a view, it is sfo, and no delays, at least when it comes to weather-related delays. we've got some clear skies overhead. and a lot of sunshine around the bay. even along the coastline. expecting to see sunny skies for the afternoon. and partly cloudy for pacifica. half moon bay. and here is a look at two advisories. the shade of pink, indicating our higher elevation, in the hill, an excessive heat warning. that actually starts today. it will go all the way until monday night. so for the higher elevations, if you're going to be doing
some hiking, be aware of that. take it easy or you may live up in areas above 1,000 feet or some of the shade of orange heat advisory and this actually starts tomorrow morning. and will also go all the way until monday night. for our valley locations. north bay. east bay. south bay. and everybody included here. the north edge of sonoma county. all the way down towards the water, mill valley, sausalito. you're included. it stretches across saint hell fla, and napa and sonoma. -- saint helena, napa and sonoma. and the east bay, hercules, and goes down highway 4, past brentwood, traveling all the way to the central valley, 680. 580, once you get through the caldecott tunnel. and south bay, sunnyvale, los gatos, san jose, all the way south towards gilroy. and beyond. and that starts tomorrow. but today, going to be hot as well. our inland cities, here is a look at the fog along the coastline, just inside the bay, expected to clear out fairly quickly.
the onshore breeze not going to help us out either. calm reported in fairfield. and oakland and northwest. so right along the coastline, it will remain localized. and because of it, the coast will be quite nice for today. 52 half moon bay right now. 55 san francisco. upper 50s, low 60s, for the inner east bay. 63 in concord right now. and then for the afternoon, concord, 102. and 79 in oakland. and 72 san francisco. and a beautiful 70 degrees expected in pacifica. so some of the coast stuck in fog. for several days. perhaps even we were looking at more than one or two weeks. and now beginning to see some enjoyable weather, at least for your weekend. this is going to continue for the next few days. in fact, we will heat it up as we get into the next couple of days. we will have a look at what you can expect in the extended forecast, and we will check in on hurricane harvey as well. back to you. >> thank you, rosemary. right now, san francisco city workers are installing metal fencing all around alamo square park. that's where the group patriot prayer is planning a news conference around 2:00 this afternoon. now, patriot prayer had originally planned to
demonstrate at chrissy field today. organizers applied for and received a permit from the national park service to hold a rally on that piece of federal land. but then patriot prayer went on facebook yesterday to announce they were going to call off that rally. instead. they blamed san francisco officials for stirring up public hostility against them. >> all of these people are saying that we are white supremacists and it is bringing in tons of extremists. and it is just a huge setup is what it seems and we decided to go ahead and take the opportunity and not fall into that trap and we are not going to do down there. >> so they say goodbye to chrissy field. and patriot prayer now moves to the iconic location, right near city hall. not too far away at alamo square park. right near the center of the city. san francisco police say they will be out in force to make sure the rally and any counter-demonstrations do not get out of hand. >> ktvu christian captain joins us live at alamo square park where it appears the access to the popular spot will be limited now that the fencing is
up. christian? >> reporter: absolutely. a lot of new developments in the last half hour. first, take a look, the painted ladies over there, you can see on one of the houses there, we watched as a young woman was up on the roof, putting up a sign that reads, love trump hate. and some signs in the windows reading black lives matter. if you take a look, alamo square park, now completely encircled by that fence that we saw them putting in the last hour or so. and we have learned now that the park will actually be shut down. no access to the park today. san francisco police also here on the scene, and we have just learned from san francisco police that access to the streets in the immediate vicinity around alamo square park will also be limited today. all of this in anticipation of the patriots prayer meeting which had been scheduled to take place here at alamo square park at 2:00 p.m., unclear on exactly how that is going to
work if nobody is allowed in the park throughout the day. and that is the latest news that we are hearing that nobody is going to be allowed into the park. we watched park officers and san francisco police officers escorting people out of the parks here this morning. and that group, patriots prayer, had been scheduled to hold a 2:00 p.m. news conference here, after moving their planned event from crissy field here to alamo square park. now it is looking like that may not happen. we are hearing that a san francisco police public information officer is due here on the scene. we are hoping to get more information from them. a little bit later on today. meanwhile the chief of police said that officers are going to be on alert working to prevent any violence on the part of protesters or counter protesters. >> we have the ability right now, as city law, city code permits, if we deem something to be a weapon, particularly because of the behavior that is going along with, it we can take action and we will. >> now, we are looking at the patriot prayer rally, they had
encouraged to attend the sunday planned event for berkeley and the organizer of that event officially called that event off as well citing safety concerns and city leaders are still preparing for civic protests there as well. and again, the very latest news that we have, is that not only will alamo square park be closed today, but access to some of the streets surrounding the park will also be limited in some fashion, by san francisco police. it is unclear on exactly what form that will take. we will continue to work with san francisco police to try to find out exactly what that means, whether the streets are going to be limited to vehicle traffic, or whether will is no pedestrians that will -- there is no pedestrians that will be allowed in. we will try to get that information to you as soon as it becomes available to us. for now, claudine and frank, you can see that we are here, essentially alone inside alamo square park with just a few park police officers, a few san francisco police officers, and a few stragglers that they are trying to get out of the park at this hour. >> so christian, streets shut down to vehicle traffic, can people still walk in?
i guess the question is, will they gather outside that fence and outside the park and in the neighborhoods? >> reporter: that is exactly what we're trying to find out, claudine. i heard that there is going to be quote restricted access to the streets. at this point, we don't know if that means that there is going to be no vehicles on it. we don't know if that means that nobody is going to be allowed on it. so we will try to find that out from san francisco police, as soon as we can, and try to get some clarity on that. so the information that i had was that access was going to be restricted. so again, we are working to figure figure out exactly what that means. and also what that means for the patriots prayer group. if they had been planning to show up at 2:00 p.m. and nobody is allowed inside the park, where will they go? >> that may tick them up even more and two to some area but it seems like sfpd and the city, they don't want anybody up there right now. >> absolutely. and keep in mind, frank, that there are already planned counter-protests in dubois park, which is fairly nearby, the castro which is also
nearby. civic center plaza which is nearby and a counter-protest plan we heard was scheduled to get under way at 11:00 this morning. so now that access to the entire area is being limited, what does that mean to those counter-protests? what does it mean for the patriots prayer and where they will have to go to hold their news conference, if in fact they will hold that 2:00 p.m. news conference and will that put them in closer prox. to some proximity to counter- protests. >> and you have a muni bus behind you. and it affects muni routeses and things like that. we will keep an eye on it. thanks for the update. we will check in with you in a bit. >> forever changing. 8:10. since patriots prayer will not rally the krissy field, the national park service lifted up many restructions with no road closures and businesses on the chrissy field and on the main
post that were going to shut down for safety reasons now free to reopen. but the visitor facilities operated by the park, such as the presidio visitors center, and the fort point national historic site, they will be closed today. there are several counter- demonstrations to the patriot prayer news conference at alamo square park. or actually wherever it ends up now. so one of the largest gathers is expected to be at civic center plaza at noon. this event is celebrating love and diversity. it will include popular local entertainer michael franti. and music is also a main part of the noontime event which is called the loved up mobile dance rally where participants are expected to dance for an hour, at delores park. and then joining up with the come-together march, that starts in the castro district and the entire group is expected to walk to the civic center plaza to meet up with the main counter-demonstration. oakland firefighters spending much of their night working to contain a fire burning in the oakland hills.
it happened late last night. two alarm blaze broke up near grizzly park boulevard and marlboro tracer near the caldecott tunnel. there are homes in the area but they don't appear to be threatened at this hour. at last check, fire crews were still working to keep it contained this morning. happening today, a memorial service will be held for an off- duty oakland firefighter who was shot and killed in san jose. 30-year-old jake walter was with fellow recruits, last week, when he and a second off- duty firefighter were shot. police say it was an unprovoked attack. the second firefighter survived the shooting. the suspect was arrested. and is facing charges. walter had just graduated from the oakland fire academy in april. the memorial service is being held at 11:00 this morning. at the scottish rite center in oakland. there will be a procession from the chapel of chimes on piedmont avenue, to the scottish rite center at about 10:30 this morning. up next, the presidential pardon for arizona sheriff joe arpaio, you are going to hear what the former sheriff in
texas this morning after making landfall as the strongest hurricane to hit the united states in more than a decade. you can see the wind right there, the storm made landfall last night as a powerful category four storm. with winds of 130 miles an hour. this morning, downgraded to a category one storm. the storm has already damaged homes, buildings, and caused some roofs to collapse. the governor of texas is warning people that the storm could bring devastating flooding this weekend. bus loads of people living near the coast were evacuated to shelters before the storm hit. >> our house is three miles from the water, so once the iowas going to hit, there was a 14-foot wall of water that would come in and we couldn't risk it. >> members of the texas national guard are heading to the areas most affected by that hurricane. nasa meanwhile is giving us a rather rare look at what the hurricane looks like from space. and cameras from the international space station captured some of the images
through the eye right there. from the international space station and it shows what the storm looked like as it strengthened into a powerful category four hurricane yesterday afternoon. president trump meanwhile took social media over the past 24 hours to talk about the hurricane this morning, and he posted closely monitoring hurricane harvey from camp david. we are leaving nothing to chance. city, state and federal governments working great together. and just last night, the president also tweeted this, we will remain fully engaged with open lines of communication of hurricane harvey, as it makes landfall. america is with you. along with mentioning texas, governor abbot, fema, and the department of homeland security. as mentioned in his first tweet, president trump is at camp david today. it is a big test for the president. the first natural disaster of the fairly new administration and the president also issued a disaster declaration for texas
that helps them get aid quickly, and he says he is getting constant briefings on the storm, at camp david, and says he plans to visit texas as early as tuesday, to look at some of the storm's damage. for more on harvey, let's kick it over to rosemary. >> let's look at the storm that is still right over texas. and moving very, very slowly. that was another fear, is that it could just stall out, and continue to bring rounds and rounds of thunderstorms, and rain activity, giving you a look here, into -- we are actually going to take you into dallas, because as we mentioned a little while ago, our raiders are playing there today and some folks want to know, will the game go on. i think we are in pretty good shape. it is going to be cloudy. it is going to be warm. there will be a few scattered showers and even the possibility, a slight possibility of thunderstorms there. but for the most part, dallas looking a-okay. in fact, dallas right there at the top of our storm tracker 2 symbol. as we take a look again at harvey, a category one, moving north, at about 2 miles an
hour. so when it moves that slow, the same areas are just getting drenched. and that's the fear. so we want it to weaken and we want it to move. and right now, it is not moving very fast. at all. and 75 miles an hour. reported right near the eye wall. some picking up gusts anywhere from 45 to 55 miles an hour. at this time. and here is a look at what is going on, as far as the thunderstorms and the possibility of even tornadoes, right across houston, you can see getting hammered at the moment. austin seeing some pretty steady rain as well. a look at the winds, corpus christi reporting a gust of 37 miles an hour. and brownsville, gusting to 23 at this time. and as i just said a moment ago, it is not moving fast enough to get inland. it will continue to weaken. but the fear here is that it might go back out into the gulf and move back into texas, a little built later this week. let's talk about what is happening here at home, because we are heating it up. we have a spare the air day in place for today.
and temperatures will be 100 degrees plus for our inland cities. for the inner east bay today. areas like antioch and brentwood, and concord, and livermore, and danville. walnut creek. as you get closer to the bay, upper 70s to upper 80s and at the coast, going to be gorgeous. and 70s expected there with partly cloudy skies. and here is a view of the temperatures outside right now, and 56 in san francisco. upper 50s in oakland. and 63 outside your door, livermore and the south bay, 64 for san jose. and afternoon highs, starting in stinson beach. 73. and you go inland, 93 for novato. and 100 degrees in the clear lake area for the afternoon. and along the east bay shore, upper 70s to low 80s. for areas right along oakland, san leandro, inland, going to be hot, 100 expected for pleasanton, and 103 for brentwood. and south bay locations nearing that century mark. and morgan hill, 99 the afternoon high and 94 expected in saratoga. and the peninsula, redwood city, 73. and 72 expected in san francisco. low 70s, daly city, pacifica

welcome back. the north bay smart train up and running today. a celebration held at railroad square station. in santa rosa. had a band out yesterday morning. for the project that has been, well, in the works for decades now. 10 stations now open along 43 miles of track, between downtown san rafael to northern santa rosa. eventually, the train will go 73 miles from larksbury, marin, all the way up north to cloverdale. >> we spend hours every day in mind-numbing traffic, on the marin sonoma narrows, the 101/580 interchange in san rafael, or the infuriating stop and go traffic near downtown
santa rosa. >> officials say the 17 southbound and northbound weekday trips could relieve some of that traffic by taking as many as 5,000 cars off the morning and evening commutes. if you like to check it out, fares by the way are half off through labor day. this morning, ube ser looking for a buyer for -- uber is looking for a buyer in the sears building in oakland where they planned to move the headquarters. the sale of the seven story landmark, located at 20th and broadway, uber never actually moved into that building, and was already facing some opposition. the public policy group, the green lining institute, started a no uber in oakland campaign. the group says it is concerned that uber would have had a negative impact on the city's affordability. >> pulling out. they had made a lot of commitments about the building. they said a percentage of it was going to be for nonprofit uses, that they were going to higher local minority businesses. so we are just wondering what happened to all of those
commitments that they made. >> as for the future, it seems likely the building could have a buyer soon. a recent study found oakland has one of the lowest commercial vacancy rates in the country. at just 4.9%. amazon expanding its liquor delivery business to more cities. amazon prime now members in about 30 metro areas around the country can now have beer and wine delivered to them for free, in two hours or less. the minimum order is 30 bucks, but for those who are in a bigger hurry, you can pay $7.99 to get your delivery in one hour. or less. hard liquor by the way isn't available by -- is available in the bay area and seven other big cities. the city of almeda is looking at free public wi-fi. the almeda journal says the mayor there, trish spencer placed the idea on the city council agenda for september 5 and asking the council to work with schools and public libraries and local businesses to help public wi-fi become more available. well, turn in your gun, and get money in exchange. no questions asked.

>> good morning, i'm claudine wong. let's start with a look at the weather and we have the triple digits and people looking to cool off, spare the air day. so a lot happening with our weather today. yes, but the micro climate pattern, still in place. i keep saying that, because it has been some time, our temperatures heat up and they come back down but we continue to have anywhere from a 25 to 35-degree span across the bay and we will have one again for today. even wider than that. giving you a look from san francisco, as we take a peek into the bay. a little bit of fog there. a little bit of fog at the coastline. but it is burning away. we will have mostly sunny skies away from the coast. either coast looks to be clear. at least portions, as we get into your saturday, and sunday. and here is a look at the advisories. here is one that starts today. excess heat warning, excessive, is for the shade of pink, and it indicates our hills. so our north bay hills, our east bay hill, down through the diablo range, and over to the santa cruz mountains and starts
later this morning and goes through monday night. going to be very hot and very dry, and we don't have the wind. if we had a strong wind pushing through, we would definitely see a red flag warning for fire danger. because it is just that hot out there. and here is a look at the heat advisory, this actually starts tomorrow. we will go all the way to monday night. and that's a shade of orange. and that's where we have our valley locations. northeast and south and from sonoma county, all the way down to the water. and heading over into the napa valley, and heading east, we have it widespread, and get past the caldecott tunnel, you're included in here. we have 680, 580. highway 4, and it stretching all the way back to richmond. south bay, sunnyvale, to san jose, and south, farther south, than gilroy. that will be for tomorrow, as well as monday. but temperatures are heating up for today. we saw a nice warmup yesterday. and continuing to climb for your afternoon today. and here is a look at the fog out there. along the coastline, and just inside the bay. but already beginning to thin out, as we take a look at the
winds, very, very calm. look at fairfield, arrow is pointing from the west, but we don't have a breeze. it is going to be very gentle and very localized. along the coast, and perhaps just inside the bay, it is going to be nice and mild. but the rest of us heating up. a look at the current temperatures, 63 in livermore. when i come back. i will have a look at the afternoon highs and take a look at how long this is expected to last, coming up. >> thank you. some new developments this morning, regarding a scheduled restaurant in event by the group -- event by the group patriot prayer. >> there is a fencing set up now in alamo square. police are now limiting access to the area. saying the park itself is closed. the department says it is not going to take any chances with protests or counter- demonstrations. and patriot prayer has been changing its plan. it originally planned to rally at crissy field. it scrapped that plan yesterday accusing san francisco officials of mischaracterizing
the group. on facebook, they announced they wanted to hold a press conference today at 2:00 at alamo square park. >> christian has been there all morning long keeping us up to date on this developing story. and it looks like a police presence behind you and many questions about how it affects today's events. >> reporter: absolutely. a lot of questions still about how today will proceed. we will show you one of the changes. you might be able to see that the rec and parks are now allows some people to come in and use the park. we are hearing that that is going to be for a limited basis. unclear when they will start move people out of the park again, because the last word that i heard was that the park was going to be closed at some point later on today. meanwhile, you said that fence, all the way around alamo square park, now you can also see san francisco police officers here, monitoring what we believe is the only active entrance in and out of the park at this time. and unclear what is going to progress later on with san francisco police. whether they are going to be
closing down streets in the area. whether they're limiting access here to the park throughout the day. and unclear on exactly how that is going to impact the patriots prayer group, which had been planning on holding that 2:00 p.m. news conference here, at alamo square park. this, following the news yesterday that they were going to be canceling their event at crissy field. so at this point, we are still trying to get some clarity from san francisco police about what is going to happen today. and how things are going to progress today. meanwhile, san francisco mayor has spoken out about this, condemning this group, and san francisco's chief of police has also spoken out saying that his staff is ready for protesters. >> we have the ability right now, as city law, city code permit, if we deem something to be a weapon, particularly because of the behavior that is going along with it, we can take action, and we will. >> reporter: now, organizers of the patriots prayer rally had
encouraged supporters to attend sunday's rally, in berkeley. but the organizer of the event in berkeley officially called the event off, too citing safety concerns. and city leaders are still planning to prepare for civic protests there as well. unclear if that event in berkeley will in fact progress. meanwhile, if you take a look, you can see here, the famous painted ladies, there is a song out in front, we saw the young lady hoisting the sign, with a sign, about love trump hate. and directed to the patriots prayer group, that was going to hold the news conference at alamo square park at 2:00 p.m. unclear whether or not that 2 p.m. news conference will go on and where it will be. we are still trying to get clarity on that. and also speaking with the san francisco police department this morning, to try to figure out how they will manage the crowds that could show up here at alamo square park. back to you. >> i know the mayor just tweeted out in the last 15 minutes saying public safety is
always our top priority. those who seek to commit actions of violence or damage property will be prosecuted. but we don't know how things will pan out today. thank you very much. and local officials fear the protests will get out of hand and possibly turn into another charlottesville. exactly two weeks ago when con fon trations when white nationalist groups and counter- protesters turned deadly and investigators say a suspected white supremacist deliberately drove into a crowd of people killing that one woman and injuring 19 other people. white nationalist groups first went to charlottesville, all to demonstrate against the removal of a statue that was depicting a confederate general robert e. lee. dozens of people gathered in san francisco's chinatown last night to remember what happened in virginia. the event was called light up the night from charlottesville to chinatown. organizers of the candlelight vigil say they wanted to send a loud message that asian- americans reject the hatred and fear created by white supremacist groups.
>> we cannot be bystanders. we cannot stand idly by. that is what allows genocide and oppression to happen. >> organizers of the vigil say they also wanted to pay tribute to the victims of the charlottesville attack and stand in sol stater with those seeking social justice. we are learning that north korea has conducted another missile test, several short range projectiles all launch and went around 150 miles before falling into the ocean. none posed a threat to our u.s. territory of guam which north korea previously threatened to attack. the first test by the north in almost a none. back in july, north korea successfully launched a pair of intercontinental ballistic missiles that analysts say could have reached the united states once perfected. the white house is monitoring that -- monitoring that situation. and the white house is dealing with the departure of another top aide last night.
sebastian gorka, counter tractor-trailer official says he resigned yesterday and the white house says he no -- counter-terrorism official says he resigned yesterday and the white house says he no longer works at the white house. he reportedly red in the resignation letter that he can best support the president from outside the white house and because he felt his political rivals were quote ascended within the white house. president trump has pardoned sheriff joe arpaio of arizona for his conviction for a contempt of court charge. arpaio was the long time sheriff in the phoenix area. in a lawsuit he was accused of rainfall profiling. a a federal judge did order him to stop detention. but he refused. on monday, a judge ruled that he did willfully violate a court order. the president says the 85-year- old candidate was a worthy candidate for a pardon. >> it is great. i love that president. he supports law enforcement.
and i am very humbled, if you recall two years ago, i supported him and i said publicly recently, pardon or no pardon, i will be with him to the end. >> arpaio faced a possible year in jail. the mayor of phoenix called the pard an slap in the face to the latino community and those people whose sist were violated. -- civil rights were violated. happening today, vallejo police are hosting a gun buy back program, and video that we share here, it was the last gun buy back four years ago. guns brought to the event today, can be traded in for a visa prepaid card or gift cards. no questions asked. up to there are 100 for rifles and shotguns and handguns, and a $200 gift cards for assault weapons. police say buyback programs have helped make the streets safer but they say until today, limited resources have prevented them from holding yet another. >> what we're trying to target is those individuals that have
guns in their households that are kept in the dresser drawer, or in an unlocked position, and these are people that want to surrender these guns and get them out of their households. >> the roby-pobleti foundation and eric reyes foundation helped raise money for the event. only opened to solano county residents and going until 3:00 at the solano county fairgrounds today. the bridge district has delayed a decision on whether to allow running event on the roadway of the event over concerns of the possible terror attacks. races like the san francisco marathon are not restricted to the bridge's sidewalks. you may recall last month the bridge district made an unprecedented decision to actually close the northbound lanes during the marathon in light of attacks around the world, where people have intentionally driven cars into crowds of people. according to the marin independent journal, the bridge district delayed a vote about how to handle future races on the bridge until next month.
hey, hey, good morning to you. a live look there across blue sky, and a little bit of fog. the marine layer is shrinking. our onshore breeze, weakening. and our temperatures are soaring. i have a look at the neighborhood numbers coming up. >> thanks, rosemary. today is women' equality day. a day congress designated back in 1971 to call attention to women's continuing efforts to full equality. more women are part of the work force more than ever in positions of great influence and becoming the main bread winners of their household. but when it comes to compensation, women are not in the same level as their male counterparts. joining me this morning, financial advisor, with morgan stanley, to talk about steps to leveling the playing field. thanks for coming in. >> thanks for having me. >> where do we feel the biggest
impact in terms of the biggest impact of equity? >> women earning 79 cents to every dollar. it has gotten better but not at parity and what it boils down to is women need to be better advocates for themselves. >> and you think it is a confidence issue and women are not stepping up to their male count irparts or bosses and saying i've got this and this should be something i should be taking on and you should be paying me to do it. >> there is an expression, i have corporate women directors to put on women companies and women do so much work when they're trying to make change and a lot of times guys fake it until they make it and a lot of times women know they can fake it until they make it and they got to practice when going in to ask for a salary increase and have a mentor. and we usually tell people to put in a 15 to 20% request but have it backed up with stats and understand why it is you deserve the increase in pay. >> and there is a lot of different ways to also look at,
in terms of how women and men may be different in handling money and doing different things and a lot of stats to show there is a difference in between investments or savings or paying off debt and what do you think are the most salient points in terms with that, in terms of what people could do to make a hang. >> i think the biggest change that women and men need to do is save more. i know it is really boring but it does compound. it is like a pack of cigarettes. smoking cigarettes every day, 365 days out of the year, and you have a whole lot less money. the other thing is to make the difference between need and want. if you want something, it is not necessarily something you need. if you actually right down and have a -- write down and have a little control ever what it is you are trying to purchase and have a good balance sheet and go over it every month with your family, start with your husband or significant other and a single woman, i have seen
kids coming out of college, they have the college debt and they come out and they get handed a credit card and go crazy. >> and that's good advice for men and women, as you said. and when we look at women's day last year, and women's day this year and what we would like to see next year, obviously if there is a compensation equity, you know, but what else, where do you think the major improvements really need to happen? >> i think they need to first off look at creating a plan. i do this with my kids every year. it is like you sit down and you put down what do i want to accomplish this year. and if you actually create a road map, it doesn't have to be new years, it should be to yourself, to your family, so you're held accountable. and it may be small steps. every day, taking small steps and being able to not invade your principle. and make sure you put -- invade your principal. and make sure you put enough in the 401(k). and people don't match 401(k) enough and don't increase enough. and even over 50, the dropoff
number, don't have that much saved and put away the average is $25,000 and at least a year put away in savings. >> and how do you do that? >> start putting more in the retirement savings plan and catch-up and a lot of work to do to catch up and make a difference. >> a lot of work ahead. >> thank you for all of that advice. and good for us to remember and get a little nudge, to get in the right financial direction. we appreciate it. and all right, frank, we will send it back to you. >> thanks, guys. we of course are keeping a close eye on hurricane harvey, the storm moving across texas this morning, after making landfall as the strongest hurricane hit the united states in more than a decade. the storm making land fall last night, as a very powerful category four hurricane, with winds at 130 miles an hour. and this morning, it has been downgraded though, to a category one storm. but a lot of rain. and governor of texas warning people that the storm could bring devastating flooding this weekend, and throughout next week. and the president has already issued a disaster declaration, for the state of texas, to help
them get aid quickly from the feds. white house says the president could be in texas as early as tuesday, to take a look at some of the damage. for more on the hurricane, let's go over to rosemary. hurricane harvey right now, a category one. and winds at about 50 miles an hour. another 18 to 24 inches of rain still a possibility. and i talked about this in the next half hour. the movement, very slow. harvey is only moving north at about 2 miles an hour. and when we have a hurricane that moves ashore, we want it to move, we want it to get out of the way. but it is almost like it is a stall. and so the areas that are being pummeled with rain and thunderstorms, not getting any relief any time soon, because this is just creeping along. by tomorrow, we will drop down to about a tropical storm. 45 miles an hour. but may not go away completely. some of the models have it coming back around. entering back into the gulf and moving back into texas later in the week. we will be tracking that. but right now, areas are still
getting hit. really hard. and the winds are still strong. the thunderstorms, the possibility of tornadoes, and as i mentioned, still, the possibility of one to two feet of rain. for us, here at home, it is about the heat. and temperatures will be heating up for the inland cities and the inner east bay going above 100 today. and sunday looks like it is the hottest day and we do begin to see it come down just so on monday. and tuesday, but it looks like it may take until wednesday before we really begin to see a turn-around on this heat. 59 degrees right now. in berkeley. would he have 59 in san francisco. and low 50s in santa rosa. and low 60s in livermore. and if you are just joining us, today is a spare the air day. and afternoon highs for today, a beautiful one in pacifica. the coast clearing out nicely for today. partly to mostly clear skies is what we can expect. 70 in pacifica. and 72 in san francisco. and upper 70s to upper 80s around the bay and as we go inland, 102 for antioch. 94 for santa rosa. and 90 degrees in and around san jose. we have an excessive heat
warning for our hills, tomorrow, and it will include our valley locations. it is going to be a heat advisory, northeast and south bay, valley locations. giving you a view of the extended forecast, and the temperature, heating up, as we get into sunday, and monday, not any worse, but not much better. and tuesday, we may begin to feel that onshore breeze. trickling in. but it really takes until about wednesday for our inland cities to feel it. >> 92. >> the coast gets it first. inside the bay next. and our inland folks, they get it last. >> the way it works here. >> yes. >> thanks, rosemary. up next, former ktvu anchor dennis richmond was back in our studios last night. we are going to see how he is doing. we will hear from dennis right after the break.

years. and last night, dennis filled us in on how he is doing. >> i just think it is amazing that i have weathered retirement this well. >> what do you miss most about the news? >> i miss you guys. i miss you guys most. >> we mish you too. >> i real -- we miss you too. >> i really do. it is in my blood. >> dennis is now enjoying life with his wife debra, up in grass valley, and in the sierra foothills. but dennis is visiting the bay area this weekend, emcee 20 shades of pink, and an event to benefit the breast cancer emergency fund. >> and a reporter here for many years, lost her courageous battle with breast cancer in 2003 and we have more information on our web site ktvu.com. and faith and dennis worked together for a long time. >> a lot of years. >> and had the privilege of knowing them both. and i have missed dennis.
>> i bet. >> well, he has a presence. he walked through, and it was like oh, my god, what is going on over there? i never met him before, introduced myself last night. but there was a whole lot of hugging and picture taking in the newsroom. >> it was always like that when he walked into the newsroom. dennis was in the building. >> impressive. >> very good. coming up in the 9:00 hour, a plan to build as many as 2,000 homes on a water front in san francisco wins approval. coming up, we are going to hear from some of the neighbors and how they feel about that project. project. >> and the controversial rally set for this afternoon at crissy field has been called off. we are following the story as the group patriot prayer just tweeted out new information. we will have that for you coming up.
welcome back to ktvu 2 this morning. we are looking at alamo square. things are constantly changing over there as we try to figure out what is going to happen with a planned news conference, a counter-protest, all of this happening this morning, and still developing at this hour. so we will have more on that coming up in just a moment. welcome to mornings on 2. it is saturday, august 26. i'm claudine wong. >> happy saturday, everyone. good morning. i'm frank mallicoat. we will have the forecast, too. a hot one.
triple digits. get ready for that. but first, more on our top story. san francisco is in the process of shutting down alamo square park. the city is blocking off the scenic spot. you can see some people in there right now, because they said they were going to shut is down and then opened it up for part of the -- shut it down, and then opened it up for part of the morning. we are told it may be shut down later today. why is this all happening, with the patriot prayer group that was going to rally at crissy field and announced a cres conference and there is fencing up around that park in the last few minutes, and the founder of patriot prayer posted on facebook, and more on that coming up for you in moments in a live report. also talking back to school, because as kids start school, it is important to know and track their social media activity. >> yes. it is that time of the year. the kids are back. we are going to telling you which apps to watch out for. as well as the latest trends in creative apps. >> and we are getting our first look at some of the damage in texas this morning. from hurricane harvey. and that storm has been downgraded to a category one. but it did make land fall.
last night, as a powerful category four. >> in fact, it is the strongest hurricane to hit the united states in more than a decade. and with so much heavy rain, one of the biggest concerns over the next few days, will be flooding. we will be talking about the storm's path and how the government is responding. but first things first, let's kick it over to rosemary and find out about our day of h-o- t. because it will get steamy. >> warmed up yesterday. even warmer today. and hot, hot, hot inland for the next few days. that about takes care of it. >> that wraps it up. >> for our folks on the coast, struggling under the cloudy cool breezy weather, are you going to get nice weather this weekend. temperatures range in the upper 60s to upper 70s along the coast with partly cloudy to mostly clear skies. there is a view of a a lot of blue sky, and a little bit of fog. so the marine layer is shrinking and the onshore breeze, nearly nonexistent for most of us. giving you a view at the cloud cover. still along the coastline and beginning to thin out there, and just south of areas near half moon bay and inside the
bay, it is clearing out as well. we will take a look at the winds, where they're generally light and in fact, very calm, with areas like santa rosa and napa and novato and fairfield, with a weak onshore breeze at 7 miles an hour and not really going to bring relief over the next few days. at least not for the inland cities. 72 fairfield already at this hour. and 59 in berkeley. and 60 in san francisco. and 55 half moon bay. and our micro climate pattern is not going to go away. we will continue in this pattern where we have 70 degrees in pacifica. and 100 degrees in fairfield. and so depending how you like the weather, you will have your choices. 94 for santa rosa and 90 expected in san jose. and upper 70s to upper 80s around the bay. we will have an excessive heat warning for the hills starting later today. and heat advisory for our valley location, that will start tomorrow. a look at that, plus we will check in on hurricane harvey, coming up. well, new developments this morning, regarding that scheduled event in san francisco, by the group patriot prayer. >> yes, we have been talking about it all morning.
city workers fenced up alamo square park where members of the patriot prayer had planned a news conference for around 2:00 this afternoon. police are now limiting access to the park. patriot prayer recently planned a rally over at a bigger crissy field but scrapped it yesterday accusing the san francisco officials of mischaracterizing their group. so right now, it is a little unclear what patriot prayer is going to do, if the park is closed later today. they have been on facebook in the last 10 minutes, saying stand by. so we know that they are kind of trying to process what has been happening in terms of that park and the location. >> it is a fluid situation. with more on that, let's go over to alamo square park where police are standing by, and what is the latest, christian? >> reporter: yes, we are here at alamo square park. and if you take a look, you can see that there is a flow of people, coming and going from the park. and there have been tourist groups being allowed in, the latest that we're hearing is that they're planning on closing the park down at 10:00 a.m. and again, we don't have official confirmation on that. that is simply what we're hearing from some officers
here. we are expecting a public information officer to show up later on this morning. if you take a look, you might be able to see, there are some san francisco police officers here, monitoring who is coming and going, from the park this morning. and all of this, leading up to that scheduled 2:00 p.m. press conference, from patriots prayer. and let's go ahead and show you some video of them setting that up fence this morning, and started setting up the perimeter fence around 8:00 this morning and we watched them encircle the entirety of alamo square, as the morning progressed. and again, that group had been scheduled to speak here, at 2:00 p.m. at some kind of a news conference, unclear on exactly how that is going to progress now. claudine, earlier, you said that they had a facebook post, so they have been active still on their social media, and that post reading, quote, so they closed down alamo center park. i apologize to everyone that spent money and plane tickets to come down here. stay tuned. so at this point, we don't know
exactly what patriot prayer will do next. we don't know how they are going to react to all of this. speaking of reaction, we have seen some signs of protests against patriot prayer. if we swing around, you might be able to take a look and see the painted ladies up there, that's the sign that we saw them hoisting earlier this morning. the sign reading love trump hate. we will look at how things will progress at alamo square park throughout the day. and we will have more on san francisco at alamo square park, yum dates throughout the day and keep in mine, this is just day one of all of this. there is a very real possibility that we could be seeing a repeat of this tomorrow in berkeley. there had been a scheduled rally there. the organizer of that rally officially calling it off. but it is unclear whether or not that message is going to be heard, whether people will still show up so we have to monitor that situation as well. >> and christian, i think you talked about how fluid the situation really has been.
i mean just in the last two hours, it sounds like patriot prayer, kind of trying to keep up with how it is changing. and police changed last night. but it seems like the message from the mayor is really you're not welcome. we don't want you here at all. >> reporter: right, and we will have to monitor the situation, and see how the city responds and see how the protests that are in the area, there are three scheduled protests that are set to take place at some point in time in the immediate vicinity, and we will see how those progress as well. >> christian captain live for us there in alamo square park in the city. thank you. it is 9:06. and patriot prayer will not rally at crissy field. and most of the city will be open today. the national park service lifting a a number of the restrictions that they had laid down. there will be no road closures. businesses, at crissy field, and on the main post areas, they were going to be all shut down today. they are now free to reopen. but visitor facilities operated by the park, like the presidio visitors center and the fort point national historic site
there, they will all remain closed today. there are several counter- demonstrations to that patriot prayer news conference that was scheduled at alamo square park. and one of the largest gatherings will be at civic center plaza at noon. this event celebrating love and diversity, it is going to include local entertainer michael franti and music the main part of a noontime event the loved up mobile dance rally and dance for an hour at delores park and join up with the come together march started in the castro district. the entire group is planning to walk to civic center plaza and meet up with the main counter- demonstration. we talked about the other protests that are scheduled to happen. the city of berkeley paying close attention to today in san francisco. because it was a rally set for there for sunday. it was also called off foye the -- off by the organizers but counter-protesters say they are not buying it. and we have more on how the city is preparing. >> we are not fooled by this. we are calling on everyone. mobilized. double time now.
>> on sprout plaza, friday evening, banned by any means necessary, reacted to rally cancellations with skepticism. >> we are not fooled by any announcements where they're trying to maneuver and try to instead minimize our numbers with claims that they're canceling. >> responding to an announcement by amber cummings. transgender trump supporter, from antioch. couplings had called her rally, no to marxism in america and expecting a few hundred people. no racists. no violence. she declared -- >> but now, she is saying please don't come to this event. >> by phone, from idaho, an organizer who has been helping cummings, explained she called it off. >> she is saying she didn't want anyone to come. she wants to be the only one there. >> cummings says apparently, apparently in -- influenced by dualing protests that previously spun out of control and blames opponents and says in an e-mail, i stress i do not
want anyone coming and if they do, you will be turned away. i'm sorry for this but i want this event to happen peacefully and i do not want to risk anyone getting harmed by terrorists. >> and everybody has their own plans on what they are going to do. each person is different. and amber has made it clear she doesn't want anyone to come to the event except for herself. >> we will defend each other. >> she asked repeatedly, if it is committed to peaceful resistance. >> the more people we have, the more effective the confrontation will be. >> she vows to keep any white supremacist from having a platform. >> we intend to shut them down by getting as many people as possible, to stand up and confront them. in a collective and organized and very determined way. >> sunday, a counter-protest to cummings would be demonstrating, it is set for the crescent lawn at uc berkeley. it is billed as the bay area rally against hate but an influx of activists and instigators in town shall the berkeley art museum across the
street is closing for the day. and it is also sunday, a monthly block party downtown is also canceled. all on the recommendation of police. >> we really regret closing on the final day of several of our exhibitions. we, with the tunes just back, and -- students just back, and with our staff in the building, we don't want to put anyone in harm's way. >> debra malone, ktvu fox news. a man arrested at a pro trump rally earlier this year will not be participating in any possible rallies this weekend. kyle chapman, taken into custody yesterday. he is in jail this morning on $135,000 bond. and a judge has banned him from possessing any weapons. he was also ordered to stay 300 yards away from berkeley civic center park. where that rally had been planned for sunday. chatman is accused of beating counter-protesters with a lead stick during a melee with trump supporters and counter-
protesters back in march. a pardon for arizona sheriff joe arpaio. >> we will hear what the former sheriff had to say after hearing the news, when we come back. >> and we will have the latest on hurricane harvey. it came on as a category four. and downgraded to a category one. but a long weekend for folks in texas.

♪and i wonder, still i wonder, who will stop the rain? >> changes in store for our bay area week. and there is a sign of it there. we are waking up with a lot more sunshine. temperatures are already rebounding. we only have a localized sea breeze. and that means away from the coast, it is going to be heating up. i will have a look at what you can expect for your area coming up. >> thanks, rosemary. we are keeping a close eye on hurricane harvey right now. the storm is moving across texas this morning after making land fall as the strongest hurricane to hit the united states in more than a decade. and now, the storm made land fall last night, it was a powerful category four, winds are at 130 miles an hour. and this morning, it was downgraded to a category one storm. and the storm has already damaged homes and buildings and caused some roofs to collapse. the governor of texas is warning people, that the storm could bring devastating flooding this weekend. now, before the storm hit, bus loads of people living at the coast were evacuated to
shelters. >> my house is like three miles from the water. so once the iowas going to hit, they said it was going to be a 14-foot wall of water that is going to come in and we just couldn't risk it. >> members of the texas national guard are headed to the areas most affected by the hurricane. and nasa is giving us a rare look at what hurricane harvey looks like from space. these are from cameras at the international space station. you actually can see the eye of the hurricane. in all of that swirl and storm clouds. it shows what the storm looked like as it was strengthening into that powerful category four. and if you plan to fly to texas, over the next couple of days, you should be ready for delays, and perhaps cancellations as well. american, united and southwest airlines have canceled all flights in and out of corpus christi airport, through the weekend. and as of this morning, 700 flights have already been canceled, at two other major airports, in houston, george
bush airport, and the hobby airport there, and many airlines are offering to wave their usual fees, for changing your flight, because of that hurricane. all right, 9:16. on the clock. over to rosemary for a look at hurricane harvey, as well as our weather here, we certainly have stuff to watch in terms of temperatures. >> for us, it is going to be about the heat but in texas where har ji continues to make its way -- harvey continues to make its way inland is definitely drenching portions of texas and we talked about this a little while ago. winds 75 miles an hour near the eye wall and at their strongest and you can see the rain, and the thunderstorms, well inland, over areas like houston, and austin, and up to about 100 miles inland, we can expect some flooding. anywhere from 18 to 24 inches of rain still a possibility with harvey. and even though it is weakening, it is still causing a lot of trouble over portions of texas, and the movement, north at 2 miles an hour. and it is nearly stalled out, in the same spot, which equals additional trouble for the
folks, in areas over houston, and in fact, for most of the morning, we have watched as the thunderstorms just continue right about that path. so it is moving inland. it is weakening. but wow, it is moving really slow. that red box there indicating the thunderstorms and the possibility of tornadoes there. we will continue to track it. here is a look at some of the winds gusting to 32 miles an hour in and around corpus christi. and brownsville, 26 miles an hour. or so. and houston, reporting wind gusts to 29 miles an hour. and as it moves inland, it will continue to deteriorate. expect it to be a tropical storm tomorrow. but it might move back into the gulf. and it might pick up some steam. and go back into texas later in the week. so we will be tracking it between now and then. for us, as the anchors mentioned, it is heating up. yesterday, we warmed by several degrees, and today, we are going to go to 100 degrees, even above for our hotter locations inland. and around the bay, upper 70s to upper 80s and at the coast, it is going to be gorgeous. upper 60s to upper 70s, expected for you there. 55 half moon bay. low 60s in san francisco.
and upper 60s in livermore. and low 70s in fairfield. so our inland areas already feeling warm. 93 for sonoma. for the afternoon today. and 93 for novato. and closer to the water, gorgeous. and 73 in stinson beach. and 74 expected for areas around sausalito. and the east bay, 78 for almeda today. and 101 in walnut creek. and 102 in antioch. and south bay, 90 degrees for you. and san jose, cupertino, you will go to 91. and along the peninsula, 84 in woodside. and 72 san francisco. and low 70s, pacifica, half moon bay, and daly city. and extended forecast here, notice we continue to see the heat-up, the back end of our weekend and into monday, not much better with heat advisories for our hills as well as our valley locations, expected. and today is a spare the air day. if you are just joining us, and we haven't heard that just yet, we will continue with this pattern for a few days. we don't really cool off until midweek wednesday. >> i'm thinks pacifica is a good place. >> i'm thinking a good spot. >> maybe santa cruz.
bay area law enforcement agencies are warning parens about a popular smartphone app called musically. it allows users to create music videos and share with their friends. followers or even strangers. but some people are using it to prey on children. silicon valley internet crimes against children has been monitoring criminal activity on that app for two years. and illinois father took to facebook to share the story of his 7-year-old daughter being asked for nude photos. sergeant brian spears says cases like this are also popping up in the bay area. >> a parent was concerned after finding her 10-year-old daughter featured on one of the music videos without a shirt on. it is an absolute nightmare. because this is happening in your home.
where you feel your child is secure. and something that you think is so innocent truly is not. >> police say you can help protect your kids by knowing what they download and if you do have that music app, you can set it to the account, to private, so only approved friends can see and comment on videos. >> from musically, the friendship apps and others trending among young people, we go to rosemary with social media activity and monitoring your kids. a tough battle. >> very scary. so many parents are dealing, with including you claudine and including me and definitely a challenge. joining me via skype to shed some lipe, is the senior parenting editor at common sense media. good morning, caroline. thanks for joining us. i'm going to ask you a question because you definitely can hear me. i cannot hear you at the moment, so i don't know, maybe our show director can fix it. there we go. now we're on. let's start with friendship app. please explain the purpose of
these. >> okay, so friendship app, they are like tinder, for kids. >> great. >> exactly. >> that says it all right there. >> and so really, what these apps allow kids to do is find other people close to them, like in their location, in their neighborhood, and basically, you know, swipe left and swipe right on people you want to, you know, not talk to, or talk to. and this is really important for parents to know. if your kids are using these friending apps that are supposedly okay for kids, and they're pretty risky, and one of the biggest risks is that kids might be tempted to meet these people that they talk to on the friending app, in person. >> yes. >> so you definitely giving them an outlook. >> to basically become friends with strangers. that is definitely not a good idea in my opinion, if you have little ones and young ones. >> all right. let's talk about the other app, they are called, the apps, they are called anonymous apps. and this already kind of sends
red flags to me. it can basically vote or talk about people, or without them knowing it. or without being the person known who is reporting it. go ahead. >> yes. so anonymous apps became popular a few years ago, and because they were so right for scythe cyber bullying -- so right for cyber bullying and people can give anonymous gossip, and talk about you behind your back. and there is a new one on the market right now which is srehaha which basically means feedback. and what this is, what this app allows kids to do is to get basically anonymous, you know, feedback from people, about like what they're like, who they are, and all that kind of stuff, and basically, it really enables kids to speak about people without being known. and that is a real risk for kids who have a hard time with
executive functioning skills like the ability to think through the consequences of their actions. and this is the kind of thing that is really a great way to cyber bully other kids. because they don't know who you are. and because it is so painful when people give this anonymous feedback about you. >> absolutely. >> so it is called srehaha, and these apps can be used privacy setting and digital citizenship skills, and good digital citizenship skills and something we talk about, common sense, and using the internet safely and responsibly and if you don't, there are risks. >> and others are yellow, spot a friend, big or live. house party. monkey. if any of these apps are on your child's smartphone, or computer, definitely you want to check them out. >> yes. >> live streaming, group chats, those of course are obviously ones that can be dangerous. >> yes, so live streaming, it is basically the ability to broadcast yourself, live video,
basically like what i am doing right now, through skype, but doing it live through the internet. and again, a real risk for kids. because they have a hard time thinking through the consequences of their actions. and because they're meeting people in a risky environment. because anyone could friend or follow them. and then also, kids might be tempted to do things for the camera that are more brazen than what they would do if the camera wasn't there. >> right. >> it often becomes a popularity contest. >> yes. >> contactually. >> caroline, we are running out of time. before we go, give us something good. give us something that you would recommend? >> so i love the trend of positive creativity apps and one of those apps allows kids to create their own stories, so these basically are like apps called hooked and tapped, that is a few of them, and they are fan fiction, that kids tap out
on their phone. >> thank you so much, caroline. thanks for joining us this morning. >> thanks. >> there you have it. >> it is tough to raise kids. >> it utes be at home you figure they're -- it used to be at home, you figure they're safe but lord knows what is going on in their ream on the phone or the tablet and the advice used to be put the computer in the living room where you can monitor it but you can't now. and ipads and phones and apps. >> and is doesn't necessarily register that they could be in danger. >> it doesn't register. >> and we have some five social media musts from common sense. use privacy settings. those are very important. you have to go into each one and make sure that you set. it also, think before posting. that is something to tell kids. and teaching them how to use their social media properly. >> and parents should be a friend and a follower, so you know, keep an eye on the phone and their tablet. and talk to your children. you got to communicate. and keep private information private. that is kind of a no-brainer there. and be respectful of others as
well. and probably the most important thing is what goes over the internet is forever. if you send a picture, or a video, of you doing something that might put you in a compromising position. don't do it. >> if they have an instagram account, you follow them. all right. >> yes. and time is 9:28. turn in your gun. get money in exchange. no questions asked. we will talk about the gun buyback happening today. in vallejo. in valle >> why police say it is the first time they have had it at the event. >> alamo scare park in san francisco is fenced off. we -- alamo square park in san francisco is fenced off. we will have the very latest for the planned news conference set for being p.m.

christian, good morning. >> reporter: yes, good morning, frank. good morning, claudine. a great deal of activity here at alamo square park. as you take a look, you might be able to see some police officers here. this, the only way in and out of the park, at this point. we do see some visitors here to the park, and earlier they had been escorting people out and now you can see some free flow of people. the latest that we're hearing from somebody from sf rec and parks is they're planning on closing the park down at 10:00 a.m. we are still working to get that confirmed, giselle and ann, joining us from the san francisco police and talk about how you're maneuvering through all of this and the latest we have heard is that the patriot prayer group will not hold the press conference at 2:00 p.m. what are you doing to prepare for the possibility that they could be either here or some place else in the. >> i we do have officers in the area. and we have the park rangers here at alamo square, too. we are working with them. our number one priority right now is public safety. so we are aware of different things that may be popping up. and we still have things going
on in the civic center. so at this time, would he have multiple contingency plans, and are prepared, should things arise suddenly, and we will have officers in different areas of the city, like we said, we still have officers here, and there are still officers down near crissy field, to monitor anything that may arise or pop up there. >> and you said things are fluid. if patriot prayer should have their news conference elsewhere in the city, are you prepared to mobilize and try trying to recreate a similar structure and closing it off like you did here in alamo park. >> we have multiple officers yes, and we are monitoring the situation and if anything pops up here or in a different area, we will be acting and making sure that the public remains safe. >> and have you some level of communication as i understand, with some of the various protest groups, because there are some other scheduled counter-protests, throughout the city, one delores park, and we had heard, civic center, and then in the castro. you're in communication with all of those groups as well? >> some of the rally groups,
yes we are in communication with and they will let us know what is happening and other ones, we are monitoring, and we have, like i said, officers staged in different areas and any information that we get, we are monitoring and will just be going and having it very fluid situation. >> okay. giselle, from the san francisco police department, thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you. >> and as you heard, san francisco police department in a ready position, is the best way to explain. it they say that they are very fluid and prepared to mobilize throughout the city as needed. still no definitive plans, and san francisco police have told me earlier that they are not saying that the park is going to be closed down at 10:00. so i am going to go ahead and stress that i heard that from a san francisco rec and park employee, that they were going to be closing down access to alamo square park at 10:00 a.m. but as you can see, at this time, you might be able to still see, that it was empty, at around 8:00. and now we are seeing visitors come and go, from the park. and we will have to wait until 10:00 to see if that is still the case. at that time. back to you, frank and
claudine. >> christian, i'm wondering, are san francisco police getting notification from that patriot prayer group officially, that they are not coming? or are they operating kind of like we are and watching social media accounts and seeing how that is transpiring? >> reporter: so i spoke with officer lannen just a couple of minutes ago, and i want to confirm, giselle, i just want to confirm, that you said were you aware that patriot prayer was not going to be here. is that direct communication or picking that up from social media or some combination of both? >> i can't exactly tell you how we're getting our information, but we are monitoring them, and if they decide for sure that they are not coming, and they pop up elsewhere, we will be ready for that. if we do show up, we have officers here to be ready. >> thank you so much. so there you have it. they don't want to reveal too much about what exactly how they're getting their information, but they again, sfpd stresses they are monitoring the situation and they're flexible and ready to go where they're needed throughout the. >> i it looks like they have a hold on the situation right now. all right, christian, thank you

works at the white house. gorka was a controversial figure. he was accused of having ties to far right extremist groups. he reportedly wrote in his resignation letter that he can best support the president from outside of the white house. and said he felt his political rivals were quote ascend ant within the white house. and president trump has pardoned sheriff joe arpaio of arizona for his conviction of a contempt of court charge. arpaio was the long-time sheriff in the phoenix area. in a lawsuit, he was accused of racially profiling latinos, and a federal judge ordered him to stop detentions, but he refused. on monday, a judge ruled that he violated that court order. the president said the 85-year- old was a quote worthy candidate for a pardon. >> what is great, i love that -- well, it is great, i love that president, he supports law enforcement, and i am very humbled. if you recall, two years ago, i
supported him, and i said publicly recently, pardon or no pardon, i will be with him to the end. >> arpaio did face a possible year in jail. the mayor of phoenix called the pardon a slap in the face to the latino community. and those people whose civil rights were violated. time now is 9:41. oakland firefighters spent much of their night working to contain a fire burning up in the oakland hills. late last night, the two alarm blaze, breaking out near grisly peak boulevard and marlboro terrace. that's right near the cald cut tunnel. there are homes in the area. but they don't appear to be threatened at this hour. at last check, fire crews were still working to keep that fire contained this morning. happening today, a memorial service will be held for an off- duty oakland firefighter who was shot and killed while in san jose. 30-year-old walter, with fellow recruits when he and a second offduty firefighter were shot in an unprovoked attack. a second firefighter survived the shooting and a suspect was arrest and facing charges.

commission approved the plan to build between 1 and 2,000 housing rentals, plus retail and office space, and a park. artists who currently have studios at pier 70 will get new work spaces. >> they will give us the equivalent kind of space at the same rate of rent that we are currently paying. which is an amazing thing for us. >> neighbors in the ever- growing dog patch neighborhood are generally supportive of the proposed development. but they have concerns. pier 70 would become another major construction project in the area. along with the new arena for the golden state warriors. >> i am concerned that maybe some of the traffic element, and public transportation and infrastructure has not been adequately addressed. we've got, you know, with a lot more people coming in, we already have a lot of traffic, with. it csf just north of here. and we have a lot of traffic. >> there are so many condos being built up right now, and i don't know if we have enough
parking for that. >> but the owner of marcella's restaurant says bring it on. >> i think it is a good thing. you know, it is development. it is no good the way it is now. >> the project calls for about a third of the housing to be affordable and some even below market. the developer, for the city, says the project could take up to 11 years to complete. >> the project still has to win approval from the port commission and the board of supervisors. construction could begin by early next year. in san francisco, rob roth, ktvu fox 2 news. well, air quality officials have issued a spare the air alert for today. officials say the combination of heat, light winds and car exhaust can combine and create that smog. the air can be harmful to breathe. especially for young children. and seniors. so today, stay inside. keep your outside activities to a minimum. and you can help reduce pollution by car-pooling, and taking public transportation. and don't use that lawn mower

thunderstorm, tornadoes a possibility and it is moving really, really slow. that is the fear. >> that is the fear, that it would stall out and it has for the most part. moving north at like 2 miles an hour. so the folks who are getting hammered are really getting hammered. it will be like this for the next 24 hours. it looks like it barely moved. i was just measuring the distance. at least the impact distance there. and you can see, almost 339 miles or so from the coast to inland is where we're seeing the impact. the isolated thunderstorms. and the possibility of attorneys. and the farther out you go, of course, the reach is not as bad. but again, category one right now, 50 miles an hour. and then as we get into sunday, it will continue to weaken. expect it to turn into a tropical storm. but wow, it is moving really, really slow. and as the anchors mentioned, some of the models want to take it back out into the gulf and then back into texas, later in the week. and here at home, we are heating it up. we have advisories in place for our hills today. and by tomorrow, our valley
