have helped fire crews move closer to full containment. here are the latest figures from cal fire. the tubbs fire is now 93% contained. the pocket fire is 82% contained. and the nuns fire is at 85% containment. the atlas fire in napa county now stands at 89% contained. those four fires alone have now burned more than 245 square miles. more fire victims living in santa rosa's hardest hit neighborhoods are returning home today. yesterday the city reopened coffey park along with the orchard park and journey's end mobile home parks. the fountain grove neighborhood reopens today and while there is so much devastation, people are finding personal belongings in the rubble that are impossible to replace. >> we found our ring in our ashes in our house. >> you found the ring? >> yeah. >> where did you find it? >> we just knew exactly where it was and we dug for it. that's awesome. well, people living in the devastated fountain grove
neighborhood will be allowed to return to their homes starting at 10 a.m. meantime, business leaders in napa and sonoma counties are urging tourists from both near and far to visit wine country this weekend. napa and sonoma counties and the entire north bay for that matter have taken a big economic hit since this firestorm erupted nearly two weeks ago. the owners of wineries, restaurants and resorts are hosting all sorts of special events this weekend to try to get more visitors to return to this popular tourist destination. those events began with the big block party in downtown napa last night. >> it's been a rough week, but we're back and we want to let people know that, you know, we're here and we're welcoming everybody to come visit napa. >> we wanted to make sure that people know that we're open, for one, that, you know, 98% of the wineries are going to be reopened by tomorrow. and that the downtown market is -- the restaurants that you come to napa for are here and anxious to have you back. >> a lot of businesses in wine country have faced a drastic
drop in out of state tourists during the past two weeks. so local business owners are making an appeal to people in other parts of the bay area to come visit that area this weekend. and last night in downtown santa rosa, hundreds of people gathered to show their support for the fire victims. according to debora vallalon, the crowd was in a remarkably festive mood despite the devastating events of the past two weeks. >> you are here tonight and you are not going anywhere and we're staying strong! >> reporter: a few hundred people gathered in downtown santa rosa to collectively exhale. >> i felt like we needed to all get together and have a big group hug. >> reporter: organized by a self-described stay-at-home mothers. >> i'm not a professional organizer. i just created an event on facebook and i ran with it. all these people came to help me. >> reporter: sunday will be two weeks since the tubbs fire blew in from the east and torched neighborhoods never thought to be in danger from wildfires. >> you won't find anybody here that doesn't know somebody that has their house burned
down or lost somebody. >> reporter: this family evacuated, their home survived, they're here like so many others to show support. >> a lot of healing and just got to work as a community to -- to hopefully build back what was there and stay together. >> we'll make it, we are, right? >> we're strong. >> reporter: she says she noticed people connecting differently. >> normally everybody is sitting in line on their phones and, like, not really paying attention though is around them but everybody was just talking and it's been so beautiful to see all our communities join together. [ applause and cheers ] >> reporter: songs of survival, some dancing, it was a night to burn off steam after so much stress and sadness. >> just showing that we're strong and resilient and even something like this isn't going to get us down. >> reporter: while a few miles away in coffey park, curtis martin searched his ashes in fading daylight. >> it was beautiful at one time. my wife and i bought it in 1993. >> reporter: he hadn't heard about the gathering, deep in
his property and his thoughts all day. >> i have no more tears. i'm dried up. >> reporter: he knows survival matters most. >> this is what's left of a lionel train set from the '40s and 50s. >> reporter: but in a family home, many things aren't replaceable. >> my wife got me a long time ago king of the remote. >> reporter: and coffee mugs are all martin has been able to save. >> clean them up and -- not that you maybe ever drink out of them again but you can save them and have a little memento. >> reporter: what happens next, say community leaders, will be a test that shapes sonoma county for years to come. >> we had people in need even before this. now we have an even greater need. >> reporter: recovery will go way beyond buying a t-shirt because the region was critically short of rental housing before and now even more so. >> we have to be creative and bold as a community and make sure that we are thinking from all different directions and that we keep this amazing generous spirit we see here tonight. >> reporter: debora vallalon, ktvu fox 2 news.
meantime in the south bay, fire crews are continuing to gain control over the bear fire that's burning in the santa cruz mountains. new numbers just in within the last few minutes show that this fire has now grown to 391 acres and now stands at 50% containment. evacuation orders remain in effect around boulder creek where the fire started four days ago. cal fire says it's gained the upper hand and has begun to release some of the crews from the scene. of course, this week's rains did help to slow the growth of the fire. >> makes a big difference in the conditions that the firefighters are working under at that time. and so it makes it a lot easier to get a lot of work done when the moisture is high. >> and this morning we can tell you that three people are in custody in jail after a shooting that happened on thursday night in the area of this fire near hartman creek road. two others also were arrested for being inside a closed
disaster area. no further details on the circumstances of that shooting. and in the meantime, officials are hoping to allow more evacuated residents to return to their homes in the area today and tomorrow. more than 50,000 students are still out of schools because of the fires. state schools superintendent tom torlakson joined us yesterday and said at the height of the disaster, more than 400,000 students were out of school and 100 schools are still closed. to help students transition back to school, districts from around the state are offering counsels, school buses and portable classrooms. >> many students will be in a whole new environment. we don't know where they're all going. but again, with over 8,000 homes lost, many of those are students that will be relocated somewhere else. it's going to be a hard transition. but our teachers are up for it and ready to help. >> voters recently passed a $9 billion measure for school reconstruction and torlakson says he will be working with lawmakers to have some of that allocated to schools in the north bay.
all right. let's take you out live to santa rosa. looking good. >> breakfast. >> the boys scouts are there, i'm told, there are about 1,000 serving 2,000 pancake breakfasts for first responders. >> and this is all for those firefighters, those police officers, who have been working tirelessly really over the past couple of weeks. they have been working long hours. they are worn out. when you sit and talk to some of them up in the fire zones, they're worn out. it takes a toll so here you go. the boy scouts are saying thank you and what better way than with some pancakes early in the morning. >> this is in santa rosa. other troops from around the bay area have gone up there to staff this so you have 1,000 volunteers coming and really such a great event. we are going to be peeking in more as those pancakes get ready to go. i believe it starts in about 20 minutes. so pancake ready to go. >> i think i can smell them
from here. [ laughter ] >> we'll chem back with them soon. republicans have a new plan for tax reform that could mean a larger budget deficit. more on how much larger the national deficit has grown in the past year and how much larger it will get. >> and let it snow. tahoe, can you believe it take a look, already getting an early start on winter. yes, it's only october. rosemary will have an update on your weather in just a few minutes.

[ crosstalk ] let's talk about the oroville dam in more serious news. when you talk about it, you have to talk about how quickly they need to get this work done and crews are racing to get it done before the rainy season arrives. you have the crews trying to meet this november 1 deadline and there are around 700
construction workers assigned to the project. work is ongoing. about 22 hours a day. the main spillway is going to be about 3,000 feet long with concrete slabs thicker than an airport runway but the size of this project and the tight time frame are contributing to the growing costs. the original estimate back in february following the mass evacuation of thousands of residents living below the dam was $275 million. but the state's department of water resources now says the final tab will be closer to half a billion dollars if not more. rosemary was talking about this earlier. we are in store for a warmup. big waves at ocean beach swells up to 20 feet on friday. high surf advisory ended last night. the national weather service advises people to use caution and be mindful of the dangers being near these waters.
the weather service warns you never turn your back on the ocean. mother nature may have provided a preview yesterday of what this upcoming winter will look like in lake tahoe. the area got a real good amount of snow. three inches at squaw valley. temperatures will be 60 degrees today. watch out for slick roads. chains were required on friday as higher elevations of interstate 80 and some people returning from tahoe this morning were caught in the slipout and also we can tell you westbound on 50 was only one lane near pines. >> there are a lot of times of the year where you think, especially in the winter, when people go up there unprepared, flip-flops, like come on. it's middle of winter. if someone is caught off guard right now, i understand. it happens. it's confusing. >> here's the problem.
>> what is this, winter, summer? >> oh, my gosh, it's going to be a great season. >> we don't know. >> we typically get a system between now and halloween. we are going to transition back to warm weather into the upper 80s here in the bay area eventually. let's take a look at the weather this morning under mostly clear skies. it's a cold one out there. upper 30s to 40s around the bay a few 50s. we'll rebound as we get into the 9:00 hour. today will be warmer than yesterday. still not all that warm though and i'll show you on the satellite view. mostly clear skies and not a lot of fog to speak of. we'll have low clouds and fog return eventually as early as tomorrow morning. but this morning, we have mostly clear skies and chilly conditions. 39 degrees right now in fairfield. the inner east bay in livermore, 44. san jose checking in at 49. and over portions of the north bay. barely making it to 0 every 40 in areas like santa rosa, napa

overnight hours. 55 degrees the afternoon high for today. mid-70s expected for tomorrow. so the back end of the weekend is definitely going to be the warmer day. and that includes for us here at home, as well. here's a look at your extended forecast. temperatures will range again low 60s to low 70s for today. bump those numbers up, upper 60s for the beach tomorrow. 70s around the bay nearing 80 inland and by tuesday, hitting that 90-degree mark for inland communities. mid- to upper 80s around the bay and 75 degrees around the coast, beach like weather, warm inland. >> we are getting a little bit of everything here in october. >> we'll go back and forth for a little while. >> keeping you on your toe. >> thank you. now we turn to the ongoing disaster on the island of puerto rico. the u.s. army corps of engineers says it could take longer to get electricity fully restored there possibly even up to a year. >> puerto rico needs tens of thousands of new power lines

welcome back to "mornings on 2". a california billionaire is funding an advertising campaign cabling for the impeachment of president trump. >> this president is unstable. >> in that ad released on friday, tom steyer says the president has edged the country toward nuclear war, on instructed justice at the fbi, and threatened to threat down news organizations, obstructed justice at the fbi. his investment of at least $10 million comes as he is considering a run for political office himself against fellow democrat dianne feinstein. steve bannon appeared at the state gop convention in southern california last night. he called for voters to not reelect gop senators who are disloyal to president trump. >> shame on you, shame on you!

white house said that the first lady is focusing on quality over quantity when it comes to hiring. new numbers show the federal budget deficit rose by another $80 billion in the past year. this comes as republicans are moving quickly to draft a rewrite of the tax code that could add up to 1.5 trillion to the national debt over the coming decade. president trump and the gop on capitol hill hope it will spark a burst of economic growth. a new report from the "washington post" finds millions who get health coverage from "covered california" and other healthcare marketplaces may be locked into unwanted health plans. anyone under the plans are automatically reenrolled unless they get a new one. in the past that would happen after notifications urging to check for better coverage. under new changes from the trump administration, many of those notices will not go out or will arrive after it's too late to change plans. 2018 rates under the current exchanges will see large price increase. open enrollments end december

high-profile police shootings. but a new study published in the "washington post" found they will have no effect on officers' behavior. the study involved more than 2,000 police officers from washington, dc. researchers found officers equipped with body cameras used force and prompted civilian complaints about the same rate as those who didn't have them. the findings reject the contention that body cameras improve accountability and transparency among police officers. a scary moment here caught on camera in a houston suburb. surveillance video captures four gunmen as they carjack a young mother's minivan. but about 20 seconds or so after this crime begins to unfold, one of those suspects fires his rifle across the street, killing a man and then injuring another person. this all happened on monday. before the gunmen take off they throw the woman and her 11-month-old baby out of the van. police are still searching for the three people involved. one was caught. a mother's dispute with a
