tv   Today in the Bay  NBC  July 4, 2019 6:00am-7:00am PDT

6:00 am
fire off today, but not with illegal fireworks. >> we are looking at the nice and easy commute today. everybody is talking about the weather today, but everybody wants to go out and see the fireworks. how is it going to play out? >> we know in san francisco this time of year you can see the fog going back and forth so the big question will be will that fog retreat in time for the fireworks. let's kick it off with the start of the day in fremont and the fourth of july parade that starts at 10:00 in the morning. you could be getting up early to line the parade routes. we will talk about what else is going on coming up, and it's pretty uneventful on the roads. >> yeah, i have only had a couple nothings to report. south bay, look at this. let's look at mass transit. if you look at mass transit, there are some things you need to be aware of. bart is on a sunday schedule,
6:01 am
and ace is not having holiday for the holiday, and you if take ac transit, they have a couple fourth of july detours because of some of the parades so check out their website on line because they have a couple areas where they could be dropping off and picking up at different spots than they normally do, and va, they are on a holiday schedule. if your service doesn't run on a sunday they probably don't have the service today. you need to check online. aside from this, this is how the majority of the bay area is looking. i'll send it back to you. >> not much happening on the roads there, but a lot will be in the sky later on tonight as we celebrate the fourth of july, and by getting you ready for the holiday morning, you want to have a special holiday addition of "today in the bay."
6:02 am
>> that's right. president trump's version of the celebration is causing controversy. >> tanks will be in the air, and planes in the air, and there's a mix of emotions surrounding the event. we have the support and the backlash for you. i don't know if he can hear us, but he's been talking about that a lot of people are talking about all of those fireworks, but craig has worked a package for us. let's go to that. >> the stage is set and so are the tanks for president trump's speech and his fourth of july salute to america. >> i think this is exciting the fact that we are going to be reminded of how we got this freedom. >> no tanks in washington, d.c. >> major changes for hundreds of thousands of people converging on the national mall today. >> the president is using it as his own holiday, this is the president trump national day. >> i hope he gears it more towards our veterans and troops that are serving and has served.
6:03 am
>> the president speaks at 6:30, accompanied by military flyovers and pban extended fireworks display. >> looks like a campaign event. >> the administration defending the cost. >> the celebration of our country and freedom, if it cost a few bucks, so be it. >> taxpayers fitting the bill. >> imagine what the cost will be for a president to be on the mall. >> the d.c. government says it will send a bill for damage done by tanks and military vehicles. >> craig boswell reporting there. a live look at san francisco right now where the fireworks are the perfect end to the fourth of july holiday, and many will be heading to the bay to see the show. >> pete suratos is live in san francisco, and from our other camera we saw quite a bit of fog
6:04 am
and kari has been talking about that, pete. what does it looks like where you are? >> reporter: let's hope the fog doesn't get in the way of the fireworks show taking place here in san francisco later tonight. we know we are expecting more than 100,000 people to show up for the show along the waterfront. of course it takes time to put it altogether. a few weeks here, when it comes to the fireworks show. we know the crews are going to be finishing up loading the barges later this morning, but the fireworks will be shot from a barge anchored right here in aquatic park. the fireworks show producer says folks should expect an entertaining show. >> it's going to be huge. like i said, it's 25 minutes of rock and roll rapid-fire fireworks. there's about 10,000 devices that will go off in the 20 minutes or so. it's going to be exciting.
6:05 am
>> reporter: there's one big change this year, treasure island is urging people to stay away from watching the show from that area, and normally it's a pop lawyer viewing spot but there's construction there so they are urging folks to stay away. the show is set to begin around 9:30 p.m. pete suratos for "today in the bay." i want to talk to kari about the forecast. the timing is difficult. >> yeah, the fog can shift back and forth and we are seeing it over the golden gate bridge right now as we look out there this morning. it's going to be in the area, and that could be making things iffy as we go through our viewing forecast, and what the computer models are plotting, it shows tonight there will be fog not only in san francisco but for half moon bay extending across the coast and may reach over across the bay into oakland as well. in terms of the rest of the bay area and the humid levels, we
6:06 am
see the humid levels drop below 30% and that means a high fire danger and the good news is because of the fog and onshore wind flow humidity will be higher but we have a lot of dry fuel on the hills so it's not safe at all to light your own fireworks. we will watch out for the humidity levels and wind, but overall great weather for the fourth of july once you get into the bay and inland valleys. we will look at the events going on coming up in a few minutes. before the barbecue, of course it's all about the parade. a lot of cities holding theirs this morning and one of the most popular is the one in danville. >> that's where we will find bob redell this morning. you can see the chairs lined up now, bob? >> reporter: they have been claiming a spot before the sun went down yesterday. we are expecting 30 to 40,000 people out here. this is a tradition that is
6:07 am
going on since 1975 here on the main drag in danville. you can see the sidewalks lined with all the chairs, and the police department and city shutdown the road and you had other people waiting here since early this morning to take up the crosswalk spots because you can get primo spaces here. happy fourth. you have six tents. tell me about the setup. >> reporter: six tents ready to go, and wait for jamie to get the breakfast burritos. >> reporter: is this for you and your friends or free for all? >> we're friends with everybody. this is a great place to celebrate the tpourfourth of ju. >> reporter: if you compare this to other towns, how would it be
6:08 am
different? >> there's only one danville parade, and it's right here in danville, california. take care. >> reporter: the parade is from 9:00 to noon tonight. believe it or not you can show up here and i see potential areas where you can put a chair down if you are so inclined, but, again, they are expecting quite a crowd. this year's theme they are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the american legion. you can't miss storm ranger later, and you don't want to miss it either. bob redell for "today in the bay." >> jamie, you better hurry with the breakfast burritos. they are waiting. hope they have one for you, bob. one of the men participating in the event is this man, 91-year-old, remember him. he will be the grand marshal for
6:09 am
the parade in martinez. they's the last surviving member of his unit that stormed the beaches in world war ii. thousands of dollars were donated to cover the cost of his trip, and he is working on the book and plans to use the extra donations to help publish it. he calls it "the luckiest man alive." he had a great time in normandy. >> i love his spirit, too. you interviewed him and others, it was great to see that spirit he has. >> i love that story. it will be great to see him tonight. as you make plans to enjoy the fourth of july, fake a look at the sunrise. gorgeous. clear sky over the south bay, and as we go through the morning, starts out cool in the mid-50s and then warms up as we get ready for the fireworks tonight. san jose, mid-70s at 7:00, and
6:10 am
then it cools off into the mid-60s. we will be at 65 degrees at the time the fireworks begin. we will talk more about other things going on in the forecast. the road sensors are looking good, and as i was walking over here, i did see this crash pop-up in san jose in the south bay, and i will find out what that is all about and i will take the opportunity. oakland, look at this. a smooth commute along 880. there's only a couple cars out there, and this is how dublin is working. this builds around 6:00 a.m., and not worried about it so much this morning. san jose, again, doesn't seem to be a lot -- there doesn't seem to be a lot of trouble on the roads. i will see what that crash in san jose is all about. but so far it's a smooth commute throughout. back to you. >> nobody is complaining. we are still here working so
6:11 am
don't fire up the grill just yet. >> yeah, it's 6:00 in the morning, that's one reason, but also because we are about to rundown important safety advice that maybe you are not thinking about just yet. one tip that may make you think twice about leftovers tomorrow. it's such an iconic place in new york and it's someplace everybody will love and recognize. >> before the big show in new york, crews tested fireworks here in california. it's 6:25. what the experts expect before you watch the macy's spectacular. this is "today in the bay." it's 6:11.

6:16 am
illnesses. >> we see a spike of salmonella or e. coli during the summer months. >> reporter: that's because bacteria grows more quickly as warmer temperatures, so the usda recommends you keep four things in mind every time you fire up the grill. >> clean, separate, cook and chill. >> reporter: wash your hands frequently while cooking and keep raw meat away from cooked food and when it comes to cooking, make sure it's done properly. >> we want our burgers to be cooked 160 degrees internally and use a food thermometer. >> steaks at 145, and turkey and children to 165. finally leftovers should be refrigerated within an hour, make sure your cooler is stocked with ice if you are not near home. simple steps that can help keep you, your family and friends safe this grilling season.
6:17 am
>> one of my biggest fears is making somebody sick. >> but the thing is, a lot of times the food sits out for a while because everybody has to come and get seconds and thirds, and -- >> a late person comes. >> yeah, the food, before you know it is sitting out, two, three, four hours. we are taking our chances. >> yeah, i like mine burnt. >> be first in line, right, and burn it. >> those are the tips for today. >> burn it. >> a graphic, please. >> if you are up early this morning getting ready to go to some of the parades and festivities or just heading out to work it's going to be phoegsphoegmostly cloudy and foggy in san francisco, and we will have to watch to see if the fog rolls back in in time for the fireworks tonight. as you head out the door in martinez, we have a cool start. 61 degrees at s8:00, and then 7
6:18 am

time the fireworks begin, we go to 65 degrees with breezy winds. and the breezes have kept it cool, and the winds will shift from the north and that will heat us up into the weekend. a big cooldown headed our way from sunday into early next week, and in san francisco we are staying consistent here with 60s in the forecast. the fog staying near the coast. so far the roads look good. there was a crash in the south bay i said i would check on and i did. but the overall look, we still have screen sensors going on. the shoulder is blocked here, but not expecting too many delays out of this, and might see slowing because people like to look over, but keep moving, folks, keep moving. so far it's just a minor fender
6:20 am
bender. 880, it's a good commute. by 6:00 a.m. this tends to be one of our hot spots. mass transit, bart is on a sunday schedule so check the website for what that means for your line. ace has no service for the holidays, so they are not running anything at all for the fourth of july. and ac has detours because of the parades, so the pickups and drop offs might be different, so the va is on a holiday schedule, which means it's different across all lines in different cities. don't be caught off guard so check that out on the websites. 6:20 for you right now. >> a unique way to honor the troops today. look. >> as you can see, there's a zipper pocket here as well as on this side, and it can store items as small as car keys.

6:38 am
identification, tags, microchips, licensing, so if they escape your yard we can reunite them with you. >> if you are planning to go out to see the fireworks, or to celebrate, it's smart to leave on music so it will help to drown out the sound from the outside world. 6:38. i want you to think about this as you eat your fourth of july hot dogs today. joey chestnut. he's the top dog when it comes to hot dog eating. happening today the contest that he just simply relishes in, the coney island hot dog eating championship there. last year everybody had to catchup when chestnut set the new record. he has won every contest but one since tw2007. it's a must see tv if you can

6:40 am
>> not bad at all. we are headed to the weekend, but first we have to get through the fourth of july. >> it's going to be a great day across the bay area to celebrate the fourth. let's talk about what is going on. fremont for the fourth of july parade, and that starts at 10:00. 62 degrees and nice and cool but warming up into the low 70s. by this evening in san jose, we go from the mid-70s to the mid-60s at the time the fireworks begin downtown san jose at 10:00. and then also as we check out the fourth of july in san rafael, fireworks start at 9:30 this morning and it's going to be cool but a lot of festivities going on throughout the day. as we make weekend plans through saturday, we are reach into the upper 80s in the inland area. we will be warmer than it was today with the bay reaching 81 degrees and 66 degrees. our temperatures stay steady along the coast.

6:47 am
inside the mall during tuesday's gun battle. it shows two young men circled in the video exchanging gunfire. this happened on the second floor near the crowded food court. panicked patrons ran for cover, and some employees felt uneasy returning to their jobs. >> i heard about six shots fired and a bunch of people running in front of my store, and one of them was hit and dropped right in front of my store, he was hit in the stomach. >> this is really sad. police say a 12-year-old boy and a 16-year-old boy were shot. both are now in serious condition. the gunmen are still on the loose. an online petition in walnut creek has more than 5,000 signatures and it's all to save the city's pool. city leaders are considering renovation plans for several parks throughout the city and right now the pool is 50 meters,
