coronavirus headlines tonight the us has lifted its pandemic travel ban for international visitors from dozens of countries after more than a year and a half travelers must be fully vaccinated and some will also need to show a recent negative covid test today the city of los angeles begins requiring proof of vaccination of places like restaurants bars gyms museums malls salons and more that's more extensive list than in certain parts of the bay area. a month ago. we told you about a nightmare vacation rental a group of friends visiting the bay area woke up to a threatening message telling them to get out of their rental home now turns out the home didn't have a permit to be a short-term rental vrbo took the listing off its site, but as abc 7 news anchor liz learned
6:14 pm
today. it's now back up with a slight change. it's a story that's hard to forget a group of friends visiting the bay area last month woke up to find their vacation rental home in fairfield vandalize the garage door painted with a threatening message telling them to leave this place or else all four tires of their rental van. also slashed i can't even believe that it's real honestly the friends. realize they were caught in the middle of a contentious neighborhood debate over short-term rentals. despite how disturbed they were by the vandalism though. they were even more disturbed that unbeknownst to them this seven bedroom home should never have even been listed on vrbo where they booked it solano county put a moratorium on short-term rentals earlier this year and this home does not have a permit the most wrong to me would be the homeowners because they're just like, let's keep ranting after the incident came to light vrbo removed the property from their site. eheenters seems done and done right? well not so fast today a tipster sent is this here is the same
6:15 pm
home back listed on vrbo. the only difference this time the home is listed with a 30-night minimum, which essentially means it's no longer a short-term rental, but neighbors here tell us these homeowners have done this before and that they believe it's away for them to skirt the rules. this is consistent with with their past. years cliff neal lives on the same cul-de-s he says for over a year. it's been a similar pattern the county shuts down the rental home and then the homeowners find a way to keep renting. it's also advertised for like 850 dollars a night which is 25-27,000 a month. so no one's going to rent it for that. so it just basically solicits people to call and ask hey it's not rented. is it available for this week kind of thing the minimum state means the host is not in violation of local regulations. the solano county planning manager told us heouaddres the e
6:16 pm
because it is o an ongoing code enforcement case the solano county sheriff's department says that there have been no breakthroughs to determine who vandalized the home one month ago. so for now the neighborhood saga continues neil expects, its only a matter of time before new renters show up. maybe this will give the county ammunition. into to finally do something in fairfield liz kreutz's abc 7 news right turning to the weather. we see a lot of green behind spencer dan. yeah and more is coming spencer. it sounds like that's true. the storm has arrived and continues to arrive getting stronger and stronger as time goes by here's a look at live doppler. we have light rain falling right now at parts of the north bay over in the east bay on a peninsula. so it's spreading right now, but the as you can see the most intense elements of the storm are yet to arrive. here's the view from the emeryville camera looking back across the bay bridge. it is 59 degrees in san francisco, oakland 57 low 60smoe thedetehere'sig ready
6:17 pm
heavier rain will follow current readings and other locations right now cool 53 degrees at santa rosa we have mid 50s at novato napa fairfield and concord and 60 degrees in livermore and here's a view from sutro tower looking out over san francisco where there are some areas of wet pavement right now, but not very widespread yet. so the forecast features are these level 2 storm arriving right now. rain and wind will follow overnight and into tomorrow morning and we can expect sunday or milder days beginning on thursday right now. we're looking at the storm impact scale this storm tonight's storm ranks level 2 on the impact skele storm of moderate intensity. it'll produce rain that will be heavy at times with strong gusty winds that won't taper off until early tomorrow morning. we may even hear isolated thunder with this storm. so here's the forecast anim. you notice between 7pm and midnight the storm spreads quickly eastward and southward covering all parts of the bay area with a periods of heavy rainfall that pattern continues until about the beginning of the morning commute around 5 am or so, and then the storm tart starts to taper. a little bit, but the most
6:18 pm
intense elemental elements of it will be over in the sierra by that time. so we move along to the wind pattern wind advisory will be in effect from seven o'clock tonight to 3 am tomorrow. this covers virtually all of the bay area the strongest gusts will be around 45 miles per hour be on the lookout for blowing debris. maybe even some tree limbs. there's a possibility of a few power out. and rainfall totals will range from just over three-tenths of an inch in san jose to over half an inch in most locations right around the bay shoreline oakland will probably get over an inch and a half of rain out of this and maybe one point three seven one point seven seven inches and santa rosa when gus will be at their strongest around mid. or so 35 to 45 miles per hour and there will be snow falling in the sierra a winter weather advisory is an effect there tomorrow afternoon here in the bay. area will make it some breaks of sunshine just a few with high temperatures mainly in the 60s. and here's the accuweather 7-day forecast start drying out a little bit on wednesday where we get sunnier and dryer days beginning on thursday in milder days as well taking us all the
6:19 pm
way into the beginning of next week, dan. right spencer. thanks very much. well, you may have noticed a familiar face has not been seen during our television news broadcasts and elsewhere for a week or so. governor newsom hasn't made a public appearance in more than a week. in fact certainly an unusually quiet period so we asked abc 7 news insider film material to look into it figure out what's going on. he is live with the story of phil. what's the deal? what are you hearing? you know, it's interesting dan most politicians you and i know and have worked with they make news by getting on television and saying something but right now california's governor kevin newsom after the recall and amid, the covid pandemic is making news because he hasn't been on tv and he hasn't been seen for about 11 days and that sort of gives you an idea of the scrutiny the guys under it all started when he abruptly canceled his trip to the climate summit in glasgow, scotland.
6:20 pm
and society unspecified family obligations. well that raised a few eyebrows because people saying well what's going on with the family? why would you cancel something that big the fact of the matter was dan that it was president biden was going there. there wasn't any real need for gavin newsom to be there and a trip to scotland at this time. just wasn't the greatest thing for a four-day turnaround. so he said no to that but what really kicked things off was after he received a booster shot for a covid vaccine. he completely off the radar virtually and that led to speculation on the ever-growing internet that he must have had a bad reaction possibly and that they were covering it up. now you'd say okay, so it's on the internet, but it quickly grew when gavin newsom's wife put out a tweet that has since been put down basically telling those are questioning the governor's presence ought to quote, you know, stop hating and get a life the next thing, you know, it was a new story that was appearing from here to london. where's newsome i guess the guy is is a contender and very
6:21 pm
minimal more than we think boy, you know it's a field day on the internet for this obviously. what are you hearing from? the governor's office the staff? well, they were kind of taken aback then because i mean as i said, you know, they're used to trying to promote the cover instead. they started getting calls this morning saying where is he? what's he doing? what's this? does he have a bad reaction to covid? is there a family problem going on? they issued a statement? eventually that said no what he's been coming to the office regular he's been going home. he's being a dad he's going to work and but basically happened was that when he decided not to go to glasgow it created a week of unplanned time off. he just didn't have any events planned. he's going to change that but it's interesting to note. he did manage to make it down to these social events of the year so far in san francisco the wedding of getty oil eris ivy getty. it was at city hall that was transformed into a harry potter-type castle, but even
6:22 pm
there he couldn't get tweets out of the governor because everybody had to park their phones at the front because the entire affair was under contract to be photographed by magazine and they weren't allowing any cell phones or selfies to go out. no, no, that would hurt. thanks phil very much. they had. where's waldo now we have where's gavin? thank you phil. well the pandemic a number on a popular palo alto street tonight look at what it might this isn't our first flip. and sure, some renovations can require some compromise. but, there's no settling at floor & decor.

business corridor to a failing street, california avenue, and palo alto has been hit hard during the covid-19 pandemic but as abc 7 news reporter dustin dorsey found out residents and business owners still believe it. can thrive despite pandemic woes. closed shuttered empty not words usually used to describe businesses along, california avenue and palo alto. we counted nearly 10 for lease signs along just a few blocks of the street that seemingly has more storefronts closed than open. it's been really sad ever since the pandemic. we lost the cleaners. we lost the bakery the counter we've lost so many different different businesses on the street. it's really sad judy. okie owns leaf and petal and says there has been any reasons businesses have closed in the area a lack of staffing high cost of rent for the street less visitors due to covid but not necessarily the closure of the avenue.
6:26 pm
okie says despite challenges and may create for others the closed street helped her business survive because the restaurants have thrived if the restaurants survived it's better for us. we need our restaurants to survive they bring in customers to us and there are neighbors and we support each other and they would not have five different for the street closure as an example of the popularity of the area. even on a monday. there was no shortage of guests enjoying lunch in the restaurant parklets for many. it's hard to see the empty storefronts along the street, but hope remains that california avenue will continue to be a popular place in palo alto. we're starting to see things coming back kind of gradual, but but we're very hopeful about how things are going. there are oh, you know places for lease, but we're hoping that they'll come. back because i think people really love california avenue, california avenue will continue to be closed until june of next year and the city council is expected to discuss a permanent closure of the street this month
