4:25 pm
questions, i want to welcome brian collins, a geologist at usgs. i note you went to yosemite last week to study the multiple events. can you give us a general idea of rock falls in general. is a common you 70 ?>> there have been a number of rock falls over the years. the national park service and the u. s. geological service together worked on documenting many of these. we have a database that contains 1000 entries. since the year 1857. it is incomplete in earlier years. more or less, these days we have 80 rock falls per year. we find out about them and there are more that go unreported. 80 per year is the number we generally use and what we see. >> 80 rock falls of that size or smaller magnitude ?>> generally on the smaller side. the most recent rock fall was

the 29th largest that we have recorded since 1857.. the majority are smaller.>> after two days of rock falls, you went to the park to visit. what did you do ? were there any lessons learned. -- ?>> the national park service and u. s. geological survey work very closely on these types of things. the usgs gives a heads up to the park. that is myself in the photo. we work with park service, mainly the national park geologist. what we do is carefully examined the source area. looking for potential instability. we examine the deposit. where the rock fall inns up to see where the impacts, as to if her structure trails etc. -- as to infrastructure trails
4:27 pm
etc.. struck from the standpoint, are there -- from the standpoint are there any early observations ?>> two things stand out. one of those is the two rock falls are next to each other. there more than likely linked. that is not always the case. there are a number of different triggers. we think how close they are, indicates that one likely triggered the other. we do not know which is which. the larger failure the happened on thursday may have started to move and pushed out the smaller one on wednesday. it could have been the one on wednesday triggered the larger one. we do know that all the rock falls occurred on 7 pm on wednesday. and the larger one on thursday. they all occurred in late afternoon. we think that has something to do with a thermal trigger. where the heat of the day makes
4:28 pm
the rock expand. and it occurs all the time. and the maximum temperature of the day gets to the breaking point. we suspect it has something to do with the rock falls happening in that waterfall area. which brings a lot of water down. it could also be a lead up.>> should people avoid these areas ? should they have caution before heading to the spots ? >> yosemite is open. it is a safe place to go. rock falls, you could say they are common. 80 per year. they are happening below cliff's. those areas are higher hazards. to be and this rock fall source area that is active would not be recommended. people are free to visit them. it is important to understand

oakland city council to step last night towards addressing the homeless crisis. members approved a measure to remove people from encampment into temporary shelters as they wait for permanent housing. oakland mayor libby schaaf joins us. i know you were pushing hard for this. is is an outdoor navigation center. will have test shelters. you have to be happy. >> i am. long-term we have to build more rapid rehousing center like henry robinson. which is been successful. we have to build more affordable housing. we cannot wait to get the new structures built. we have to take action now. this is a temporary measure. and allows us to get people off of the sidewalk. and into a safe space with supportive services.>> how does this work and what area of the city will be targeted first ?>> we identified three locations. our promise to the people that live around those locations,
4:42 pm
not all of whom are excited about this plan. let's be honest. is that we will give priority to the main encampments that are near those sites. we look for the most frail that are in the homeless population. those are the two criteria that we will be looking at. proximity to the tuff shed pop up shelter site. as well as fairness. once we have encampment and offer them the opportunity to move into the tuff shed shelter, we will clear that sidewalk and we will keep it cleared.>> if someone is offered this opportunity to go into one of the sites, and be set up with services, and the long-term effort and goal of getting them into permanent housing in the past, some people see that as the cycle continuing.>> these are adults. we cannot force them to take these options. often homeless people do not
4:43 pm
want to move into the shelters, where there is a large room with cots. there are often hours of check in and check out. these are more similar to the tent situations that they currently have. they provide some form of privacy. allow partners to stay together. and they allow us to move an entire community together into this new area. so that they can stay together as a community. we are hopeful that this model is actually going to be more attractive than the traditional shelter.>> each one of these can house 40 people ? >> yes. we want to keep it manageable. we are limiting the sites 240.>> they can stay there for how long ?>> our goal is to get them into a better situation within six months. tough sheds are not designed to be permanent places of residence. they are not tiny homes. they are temporary.>> 40 people
4:44 pm
that is 80 people potentially a year. our cost ?>> it will cost four to $50,000 a year. -- $450,000 a year. to have security and housing navigators, mental health and addiction support. all the support. we are hopeful that some people might even be able to transition from the tuff shed shelter to permanent housing. it all depends on what their issues are and how effective and quickly we can help them.>> a lot of people would say that is a lots of money. half $1 million to potentially help 80 people. what do you say to those critics ? that state this idea does not make nearly a sizable dent in the problem ? it comes at a rate taxpayer expense. >> the taxpayers are already paying for homelessness they are paying the emergency room
4:45 pm
it district visits. they pay for 911 calls. they pay for the fires at encampments. they are paying and health risk. they are paying in a lot of different ways. we would rather pay to solve the problem. and continue to clean up after the impact. >> what is the next step ? >> the next step is reaching out to the county and private sector to see if we can get the funding to provide these supportive services to more than just this one site. we also have been asked the council to identify additional sites. so that there is one in every part of the city. and equity analysis was requested. that is our goal. this is not a long-term fix. we have to do something now. this has to be the most effective use of the dollar and the most compassionate way, not just for the and sheltered residents, but for the people who live around them.>> as you mentioned, trying to get ahead of the rainy season thank you
