get on to the bridge. it's 5:38, let's go back to you at the desk lets go back to breaking news, the wildfires are still burning in southern california. >> we have live video of the fires burning. it's in ventura county. we're joined on the phone by scott mcclain -- mclean, it's 0% containment, is that the case? >> that's the case, it will be the case for a while because of the weather conditions. >> what are the weather conditions down this? >> down in southern california, we received the winds after the north area. we're looking at sustained winds, severe gusts and that's supposed to go into a the night or possibly tomorrow morning. the hill fire you're looking at 10,000 acres, structures have been destroyed. again, 0% containment in santa rosa valley. the woolsey fire 2,000 acres,
if 0% contained in that valley, we're showing live peculiar towers on what is on fire on "mornings on 2", talk about evacuations, how many people evacuated as far as you know? >> i don't have that figure. >> okay, i'm assuming you're talking thousands, maybe? >> oh, yeah, for sure. that's bringing autopsy great point. we've been pushing and pushing for the last few years, those evacuation orders, when they come, you have to go. there's no arguing, there's no thought, it's automatic, make sure your go kit is ready to go, you have to go, 22 people died on the tubs fire last year. i got off the camp fire, you can imagine the devastation that you were talking about earlier, 80%, i would say more, people were trapped, we had temporary refuge areas set up around the town to protect the public up there until we could get them off the hill.
>> as we're getting a look at the aerial shots you can see how big the fire is and how close it is to the freeway there, we know 101 was shut down in both directions, i would imagine that is hampering the evacuation efforts though. >> yes, it always does, don't forget the infrastructure, the power poles and trees, and anything that burns along the road. it ham% all that combined. it definitely does. >> talk briefly about what communities are on fire, a lot of us know those communities down there, what's on fire, what's in danger? >> well, the hill fire is, it started in the hill canyon, the santa rosa road areas and santa rosa valley, the fire started roughly on east street and across alpha road and south of the valley there, again you're being pushed by the winds. >> and this is, we know, cal
state university, channel islands is down there, other schools and businesses may be affected as well as a precaution, maybe not as close to the fire lines and there are other fire lines affected as a precaution? >> yes, as fast as they've been spreading in historic rates, the historic areas are compromised. it gets further and further out. >> one finance question, i know you have things to do, i know that -- one final question, i know you have things to do, i know that you have things to do. are these areas that have burned before? >> i don't know. >> scott mcl ean from ventura county, we appreciate you being with us. >> thank you, thousands,
thanks, scott. we'll get updates throughout the morning for southern california and northern california. thousands of homes and businesses evacuated, threatened and many have burned. we'll update those stories. >> it's now 5:43, a price tag on repairing the transbay transit center, the cause of the cracked beams and when it can reopen. and addressing sexual misconduct at google, the new policy handed down by goggle ceo. >> a smoky hazy day, temperatures will come down due to the smoke layer, there are amazing differences in the temperatures right now. as much as 30 degrees.
early to know the motive of the deadly you a tack in thousand oaks that left 12 people dead. they're processing evidence at the scene and the gunman's home and his car. agents are trying to paint a picture of his state of mind. the gunman was 28-year-old former marine ian long who may have been battling ptsd, he killed himself after the shooting rampage. we're learning one of the people killed survived another mass shooting last year, that victim was 27-year-old telemachus orfanos. that's where the gunman opened fire and killed 58 people. the social media site posted he has joined our 58 angels. he was a former eagle scout and he served in the navy. a college freshman who grew up in napa valley was killed in
the shooting. alaina housley graduated from the high school, and people are mourning the loss of their friend. >> she was a beast on the soccer field and always had a smile on her face and was a supporter of everyone's dreams. >> she competed as a student athlete, and they had a vigil on the soccer field. >> and adam housley tweeted out a statement, and it reads in part: we have posted that letter on our website, ktvu.com. you're time is 5:47, google is changing how it handles sexual misconduct claims after
it has walked off the -- thousands of employees walked off in protest. in the letter the ceo apologized to employees for not acting sooner and he outlined several changes that include arbitration being optional and better care for those who come forward. >> i think it's important to recognize that google has heard its employees, it's not a perfect solution, but it is a solution. it addresses some issues and i think this will signal to other companies they need to start rethinking their processes. >> last week's walkout at google follows the payment of $90 million who left the company because of accusations of sexual misconduct. right now it's 5:48, you want to check in with sal.
the air quality could affect traffic and in southern california as well. >> it could affect airplanes more than cars as the planes need visibility to see, they need better visibility, if it's low they could be slowed down. lets look at a problem. perhaps you're trying to get to the airport at 101 southbound, there's a crash involving several vehicles and a couple of lanes taken away, we're driving out from brisbane and you'll see a big delay. the best thing for you to do right now, if you're leaving san francisco is to use 280 to 380 as an alternative route. lets talk become the tracy commute, we had earlier road work on westbound 580, it set things back to a rough start. traffic is moving along slowly, not only on 205 but 580 even before the why.
the rest of the commute is all right if you're driving to 238, we have stop-and-go traffic all right. you can see that traffic is fine. metering lights went on 20 minutes ago and backup is 15 to 20 minutes for a wait. it will be a smoky and hazy day, a lot of observations, it's not clouds it's smoke. the layer will pour in here. the only mackinaw is mackinac island in michigan, i can smell the smoke all night, air quality must be poor, there is an air quality advisory, that's because of the smoke and haze, red flag warning, though should start to end unless they extend it, i don't think so, but they've talked about ending it at 7:00, it doesn't mean we won't at any to get a northeast breeze. half moon bay had gulf coasts
at 39 and sitting at 66 degrees, that tells you there's an offshore component. it's difficult to get around paradise, there's a big loss, i'm seeing a northeast breeze to the east, to the southwest of paradise, it looks like temperatures will be in the upper 60s to 70 with the northeast breeze considering all they not as strong as yesterday. breezy for some, hazy skies, it will be mild it warm today. with so much smoke the layer over us, i believe some of the highs will come down at 3 to 5 degrees. smoke and haze for your freeway. northeast breeze, north of davis, and north at vacaville and northeast at fairfield, what we're looking at, it's going to the oakland berkeley hills. the northeast breeze is coming in at 20 to 30 miles per hour. if it wasn't for the haze, we would have it -- >> berkeley is at 59, the napa airport is 25 degrees cooler than at this time yesterday.
no wind verse as you breeze yesterday. 59 the city, 58, look for sunshine, somewhat, hazy skies today, temperatures 60s and 70s for some, and it looks like this pattern will continue into the weekend. >> thank you, steve. the time is 5:52, honoring a local legend, when we come back, we'll look at the big celebration of life at at&t park for willie mccovey. hebreakfast makers, takers, step counters, outdoor explorers, faith restorers, appointment keepers, fantastic creatures. farmer's market goers, cholesterol lowerers cell phone silencers. the new lease on lifers,
