tv KTVU Mornings on 2 at 6am FOX October 18, 2017 6:00am-7:00am PDT
>>reporter: pam, dave, it is smoky and cooler here on bear creek road than it was yesterday morning. george and i were able to look off in the distance where the fire burned through yesterday. we saw a couple of hot spots, but not the big towering flames like we saw yesterday and especially yesterday late morning. we are monitoring the fires progress. at last report the bear fire is just about 5% contained, 270 acres at last count. so far the bear fire claimed four homes forcing evacuations yesterday of some 150 to 200 homes in the area. residents in the path of this fire told ktvu it swept through so quickly late at night they did not have a chance to gather much before running away from those flames. crews on the line say they have been prepping for this fire -- a fire like this this time of year. >> we're really at the driest point of the fire season. this is when the weather usually turns. you know, the nights are cold. the days are shorter.
but the fuels are as dry as they get right now. >> we are expecting cal fire to hit this fire again aggressively this morning using a combination of hand crews, heavy equipment and air support as the sun comes up. keep in mind this could be a relatively stubborn fire because of the steep terrain out here. already five firefighters have injured themselves battling the bear fire. no word about overnight injuries and about those conditions. but that's one of the reasons why these firefighters may have injured themselves. they were telling me the conditionings are so steep they could have misstepped and start tumbling down an hour. we're going to have an update at 7:00 on the progress -- we are expecting that as the sun comes up. they're going to do that aerial survey. that will give them a sense of how the fire has
developed overnight, where they need to con straight their resources and how to focus on getting the bear fire under control. back to you guys. >> thank you, christien. they were trying to protect more homes from burning. a scary situation there, and of course weather playing a role in the fire fighting. what is it like in -- you were talking a little about it? >> if you get around 2500 feet, it's warmer, but i think christien will tell you it's cool. >> and for the day, the winds are not supposed to pick up. >> it's an onshore breeze so humidity will be higher. big pattern change here. it has taken ten days for us to get out of this north, northeast breeze. we're seeing that today. fog back, 60s, 70s. take a look toward the santa cruz area, there's areas of fog there. some may not have lifted far
enough. there's some on the coast and it's moving up the coast and starting to move inland for some. 40s on the temps. we'll take that. boulder creek, a couple of observations. 4, 4. that's cool. there's not much of a breeze. one observation and this is around 2600 feet. it has 19% humidity. the rest have high humidity. 60, 70% humidity. at least we get good news here and it will be better news tomorrow. a possibility of rain coming in. we have an opportunity to get some precipitation in there. 40s, 50s on the temps around oakland, also marin county and san francisco. and more of an onshore breeze today. not the northeast so that means your air quality will be better. 42 in santa rosa. napa, 43. impressive system for the pa pacific in the west. parts of northern california, we'll get rain, the best opportunity will be further north you go, so as -- santa rosa and lake -- decent
amounts. not as much as you go south. boulevard creek, point 90. that's beneficial rain after such a dry, dry pattern for so long. cooler day, onshore breeze. 60s, 70s for most and the fog has returned. you've been asking me for nine days, the fog has returned, sal. >> good, steve. >> not just smoke. >> i've been watching it. as i go to the bay bridge toll plaza traffic shot i want to show you we have a lot of slow traffic here, and later on today on the 9, perhaps you can pop in a little later. i'm going to speak with alameda county, a transportation person about the effort to get people out of their cars, single drivers can use the carpool lanes. on the right hand side of your screen, the carpool lanes are moving well and of course there's an effort to get more people to share their ride through reduced congestion everywhere in alameda county, that includes here at the bay bridge. let's look at the commute. there have been no
major problems on 880 north and southbound in front of oracle arena. it is a nice looking drive. 880 south is beginning to get slow in heyward. and 580 is slow. 680 is slow on the snow grade approach and 880 -- 85 are okay. this is a live look at 280 and 880 where cars are out there, but it's not stop and go. 6:05. let's go back to the desk. >> sal. in the north bay, fire crews are making progress containing the wild fires and the recovery is underway. the sonoma county sheriff says search teams are trying to find 53 people on that missing persons' list and 23 are from the city of santa rosa. the national guard and state and local agency was looking for those people in the fire zone. we expect an update on containment numbers after the sun comes up this morning. but here's the latest containment numbers. from north to south,
the pocket fire burning near geyserville, 58% contained and the tubbs fire in sonoma county, 87% contained. the nuns fire burning in sonoma and napa, 78% contained. and [indiscernible] which began near lake barry esta is 80% contained. people in napa county are starting to return to their homes and businesses. wine makers are taking stock of the damage. the napa valley vineyard association said more harvested their grapes. they say wines from previous vintages are stored at other locations. in sonoma county as homeowners return to their burned out properties, many are reeling from how much was lost and how little time they had to get out. one man has cell phone video
from sunday afternoon before the fire. it shows his kids and their dog playing in the front yard. he said they had minutes to evacuate the family. >> i'm glad i was home because my wife never got a call. she never got any warning. and i'm lucky i was home because, yeah. very lucky. very blessed. >> california insurance commisse jones visited the area yesterday and offered some advice. he ordered insurers to cut the red tape and advance money for personal losses and be flexibility about documentation since so many people left in a rush. time 6:07. both california's u.s. senators, diane finestein and hair us are warning about a problem in the federal warning system. sonoma county did not use that system when the fire started because it would have sent an alert to everyone in the county and could have clogged up roads with people trying to get away from a
danger that did not threaten them. now, officials did use alternate systems, but users have to sign up for those and not everyone does. senator finestein and harris sent a letter to the fcc. they say the emergency warning system has to be changed to target more specific locations. and property owners returning to survey what's left of their homes are being warned not to clean it up themselves. the u.s. environmental protection agency says it will handle the first phase of the cleanup which is removing toxic terms from thousands of burned out properties. then cal recycle will move in to remove the non toxic waste. town hall meetings will be scheduled later this week to provide information about that cleanup process. property owners who do not follow the approved cleanup procedures could jeopardize their ability to obtain help from fema. fire crews near dublin and the east bay are watching for a
flare up from the fallon fire. this started east of dublin on the hills of camp parks. 116 acres burned. it is 75% contained now. there's no longer a mandatory evacuation, but the cause of the fire is under investigation. westbound 580 reopened after an overnight freeway shooting. the chp received a report of a shooting between redwood road about 9:00 last night -- when they arrived nobody was there. but about 11:00 p.m. a 21-year-old man showed up at an oakland hospital with a gunshot wound. all westbound lanes of 580 was blocked. the freeway was reopened at 2:30 in the morning. as the right now, investigators do not have information on positive motive or suspects and the victim has been released from the hospital. our time is 6:09. the police have a lot to do with
santa rosa. they're trying to help families who lost everything in the fire. coming up in minutes, how you can help kids before halloween arrives. things starting to return to normal in napa. many wine makers and business owners want people to know they're open for business. they need and want those customers. that story and more coming up.

>> thank you, alex. the california psychological association is asking its members to help people affected by the ongoing wild fires. the group sent an urgent request for volunteers to work with people at the evacuation centers and shelters. the e-mail to members warn deadly wild fires -- it could have a long term affect on people, particularly those forced from their homes who may have lost everything. our time is 6:39. the san jose city council narrowly approved a 6-5 vote a new modified gun -- the council voted inform require gun owners to lock up their guns at any time they leave their home. that would include putting a trigger lock on the gun or put them in a lock box. the original law would have required guns to be locked at any time they're not carried by the owner. the new policy does not penalize owners who report a stolen weapon within 24 hours to
make sure stolen guns are still reported. violators could be fined $1,000 and face up to 6 months in prison. one man is under arrest accused of stabbing an oakland girl as she walked to school. it happened before 9:00 yesterday morning on 29th street in east oakland. the 14-year-old girl was taken to the hospital in stable condition. the suspect left before police arrived but a witness followed him and alerted police who then took him into custody. investigators do not have a motive and they have not released the suspect's name. a large fire started at an oil refinery. fire crews have been able to contain that. it's the chevron refinery south of downtown los angeles. flames and smoke could be seen high above the refinery for a half an hour. crews poured foam on the fire. no visibility flames were reported shortly after midnight and no injuries reported, but the cause of the fire is under

welcome back to mornings on 2. advertisements promoting fake news are appearing in fact-checking websites. those fake ads appears on adds like politifact -- now publishers use goggle's add word system to place the advertisements on website. the accounts that placed the advertisements have reportedly been terminated from goggle's ad platform. our time is 6:44. twitter says it will make its social media sites safe.
twitter is making several policy updates cracking down on hate speech and also sexual harassment. this comes after twitter ceo jack dorsey sent out several tweets claiming the company still was not doing enough to protect users. the new policies reportedly will help protect women who have been victims of nude pictures being distributed without their permission. and also it's aimed at preventing unwanted sexual advances. a disturbing trend is encouraging kids to go missing for fun. the challenge advises children to hide from their loved ones for -- the participants win points every time they're mentioned across social media by family members desperately searching for them. the latest challenge is similar to the game of "72" which back in 2015, even encouraged kids to disappear. so report that if you see that.
that is alarming. >> yeah. 6 :45 is the time. let's check with gasia mikaelian. >> you reported on the bear fire in the santa cruz mountain and we're staying on top of that breaking news. it was breaking news yesterday morning, and here we are about to get the latest live from cal fire at 7:00. we'll have structure -- structures have burned, how many more are threatened and when the fire stands on the bear fire. also it's a big back to school day today in sonoma county. students at sonoma state are getting regularity back into their routine. meanwhile k through 12 students are waiting for their return. we'll detail the reopening dates for several districts and where things are back to normal. i'll see you in a few minutes, dave and pam. >> gasia, thank you. he's watching our commute, are you staying busy. >> you know what, traffic is
going to be busy if you're driving on the east shore freeway. we keep watching this because it's the busiest commutes. 35 minute drive which is only going to get a little slower as the morning wears on from the carnegie bridge to macarthur bridge. 30 minutes before you make it on the span. this is a look on the span getting to san francisco. if you're thinking about the san mateo bridge, westbound 92 traffic was going to be busy. there was a minor accident, in the area of claude witter. 880 is going to be slow as you drive from 238 to union city. 680 getting out of pleasanton slows at the 580 interchange through most of pleasanton as you head south. 6:47. let's bring steve in with today's forecast. >> we have fog back . >> that's good. i like the fog. >> me too. it has taken a long time, but we have a pattern change and we're going to lead to rain tomorrow. in the evening, it's going to take a while to get -- today it's about
the low clouds and a cooler patterns. upper 70s and hazy, but at least the wind is turning most westerly. fog on the santa cruz cost. the bases will lift as we head into tonight and tomorrow. it will get it up to 2,000 feet and that will keep cooler temps in there. speaking of cooler temps, 41. most of these observations i'm showing you are around 500 feet except one which is at 2500 feet. so the temperature is warmer there and the wind out of the north. but the humidity 70, 80%. so that's good news. the last time we talked to christien he said it's cool. maybe by this time tomorrow maybe we'll get rain. it won't be until tomorrow morning. fog on the marin and also in the sonoma county, and probably maybe a little making
it into napa county and it has returned to the city. 67/50 today, that's below on both average. 69 and 54. i did see upper 40 s in san francisco. 88, 1933. the record high. 40s and 50s, kiz g izing -- kensington, 49. 50, 51, but the key is the breeze. it's onshore from a north, west, southwest. that will get better air quality in there and push that smoke. 40s and 50s. a few 30s. upper 30s. hims burr y 40. cloverdale, 45. a couple of day s s ago we had a 20 degree spread but that's not the case now. bill valley 41. 23 up in truckee. 39 ukiah. truckee 23. incline 36 . south -- if you're headed up to there,
you don't have to worry about anything. late, late thursday into friday, above 6500, there could be snow, but that's not until late thursday, friday. a lot of moisture continues to rotate around this low. there was a hint that system would draw that up. a lot of high clouds from the west, south. tomorrow we'll focus on our system coming in. again, it doesn't reach areas to the north until 5:00 and starts to move south by 7:00. overnight late thursday into early friday, it makes it down to the santa cruz mountains. not a lot. we'll seal if it hold -- we'll see if it holds. a half inch to 2/3 of an inch. so again the timing on this will be tomorrow afternoon evening or overnight. temperatures in a couple of days are on their way
