be flying around -- kumasi: they are going to be running around. reggie: get out of their way. i'm just wondering when we get to the snacks at the fellowship hall afterward? mike: that's where the deer went. case closed. 6:19 on a tuesday morning. let's take a look outside and show you some of the sunshine that is trying to develop in the south bay as the cold front continues to push the clouds away from us. because the ground is so saturated, we have some patchy fog out there, but it is quickly going away. grab the sunglasses, you will definitely need them this afternoon. it may be cooler tonight with a few clouds coming in, and even lessen the way of fog than this morning, and brighter, drier, and a milder weekend after that. here's the cold front ushering in the dry air and the sunshine before the clouds roam in later on this afternoon.
6:20 am

6:21 am
our coolest days are also thursday and friday. warmer on either side of that. reggie: let's bring in with a look at what is happening on abc 7 this morning. ginger? ginger: coming up on gma, the latest on the dangerous flash flooding in the northwest. you might have seen some of these images, but we are getting them and throughout the morning. more than 16 inches of rain in just five days. also, fears of a holiday covid surge. more states offering booster shots for all adults, as 17 states are seeing hospitalizations climb. plus, we have an abc exclusive with the mother of the 11-year-old girl that was the sole survivor of the plane crash that killed everyone on board, including her father. she says she believed her husband hugged her daughter, helping save the little girl's life. it is a story i have been enraptured by this weekend.

6:26 am
pieces of debris. a big piece hitting the space station hitting the space station could be catastrophic. reggie: fines were supposed to start yesterday for companies letting shipping containers stack up at terminals, but they have now been pushed back a week. activity has picked up since the penalties were announced by the end of october, with containers starting to get cleared out. that logjam allowed the white house to let the port operate around the clock to get items out for holiday shopping season. the deodorant story is finally here -- do you put it on in the morning, and do you know you might be doing it wrong? according to the former president of the american academy of dermatology, deodorant works best when applied at night. that's because your body temperature drops at night, which means you sweat less, and your sweat ducts can better

6:31 am
you stream. we will start on a check of the forecast with mike. mike: we have fog this morning, but it is confined to the north bay and the east bay valleys. this could last, this being the fog and visibility it produces through 11:00. it will lift much faster than it did yesterday. i don't think we have a lot of sunshine and our future. temperatures in the low to mid 50's, and you can see the sunshine as we head off to lunch. upper 50's to low 60's. high clouds and sunshine, 58 65 degrees this afternoon. i will give you an update on thursdays rain, coming up. kumasi? kumasi: bay area congresswoman jackie spear announcing this morning she will not be seeking reelection next year. she made the announcement in a video posted 30 minutes ago. >> 43 years ago this week, i was
6:32 am
lying on an airstrip in the jungles of guyana with five bullet holes in my body. i vowed that if i survived, i would dedicate my life to public service. i lived and i served. it's been a remarkable journey that has surpassed my wildest dreams. today, i am announcing that i will not be a candidate for reelection to congress in 2022. reggie: joining us now, u.s. congresswoman jackie speir. thank you for joining us for the first time since making that big announcement. i am sure there are hundreds of decisions to make as you are coming to this conclusion, but what was the one thing that pushed you over the edge, that made you say ok, this is going to be at? >> coming up on 39 years in public office and a husband who, frankly, has had a weekend wife for 20 years and wants to have me home, as do i think my family
6:33 am
and my friends. it was a very hard decision. i love my work. it has been incredibly fulfilling and it has been such a privilege to serve my constituents in san mateo and san francisco. it's tough. i will say that right out. but i think after 39 years probably time for the torch to be passed to yet another generation. kumasi: when you think over those 39 years, what do you think of as your best moments and also the most challenging? >> that's a hard one, kumasi, because it's a very full career. in the state legislature, i am most proud of the fact that i was able to change the child support enforcement laws in california so that custodial parents were not living on the edge and we were providing the kind of accountability when there were child support orders that had been court ordered but
6:34 am
not been complied with. also, the baby bullet, which we got from san francisco to san jose that cut the commute trip in about half. here in congress, it's been a labor of love around ■issues around sexual assault in the military, on college campuses, dealing with the issue of malpractice at military medical facilities and making sure the san francisco bay has the restoration money it deserves. reggie: 43 years ago this week, you had to play dead on a tarmac in guiana for the jonestown massacre. your boss was assassinated. you barely made it out of there, shot multiple times. then we find ourselves in 2021, in a situation where you are once again on the ground, believing that you may die because the insurrectionists are storming the u.s. capitol.
6:35 am
it's almost unbelievable that those words are coming out of my mouth. when you look back at those two events, not that they do find you, but they have a huge impact on the person you have become. where do you see ourselves now? these were not folks who were part of an established cult. these were americans, every day, average citizens who took it on themselves to threaten u.s. congress members. >> that was what was so about what happened on january 6. i was lying on the floor in the gallery at the chamber, and after that shot rang out, i thought i was going to die in my country, in the tabernacle of democracy that we know as the u.s. capitol. it shook me to the core. it should be a strong message to
6:36 am
everyone that we have got to tone down the violence in conversations, the violence on social media, and frankly, that's why i believe that paul gosar needs to be censored by the house of representatives, because he was basically suggesting that one of my colleagues, alexandria ocasio-cortez, should be killed and he should take up battle with the president of the united states. we have much to learn from those who have been victims of violence. it is not something that we should take lightly and it scars people for the rest of their lives. kumasi: in your video announcement, you said you still have a chapter or two left in this book of life to contribute. everyone wants to know what you see yourself doing in those chapters. >> i don't know yet, and that's
6:37 am
what makes it fun and interesting. i will still be involved in our communities. i still want to be giving back. i would love to see a foundation created for san mateo county, because there really isn't one and it's a wealthy county, but it also is subject to a lot of pain and suffering by many of our constituents. i don't know. but i am open to all the possibilities. reggie: i'm curious, as we look back on your career and on the way things started, as we look back at congresswoman leo ryan, if he were alive today and looked at your career and was able to see all that you have done, what do you think he would say? >> well, he would probably say you learned well from me, because i did. as short a time as the mentorship i had with him, i learned a great deal. i became much more fearless, because i almost lost my life in
6:38 am
guyana, so i wasn't afraid, and he talked me -- taught me about next parental governing and legislating. that's why he went down to guyana in the first place. i have taken pages from his book of lessons and have done that with my work as i have traveled around the country in the world, looking at our military service members and their lives and what needs to be fixed. it's why i went to the border when we were having parents separated from their children and led a number of delegations there. i think he would say that i learned well from him. reggie: it's been a pleasure talking to you, and congratulations. >> thank you. great to meet with the both of you. kumasi: we were the first to alert you to this breaking news in the last half-hour with this push alert. if you want breaking news as it happens, download the abc 7 bay area news app and enable push alerts. reggie: some county leaders have
6:39 am
been telling us, get that booster shot. don't worry about the cdc guidelines, you are fine. we want you to get used to it. then you go to the website to try and sign up for the booster shot, and they are asking you, how do you qualify again? some feel like they are being put in a position to live, amy -- to lie, amy. amy: when you are booking the appointment coming might be tempted to lie to get that appointment. the software national pharmacy chains are using to book appointments do not line up with what we are being told in california. we are being told that anyone over the age of 18 can get a booster shot if it has been six months since their first round of shots. but californians trying to make the appointment find they are not making it through the screening process, because the cdc guidelines say you must be 65 or older. you will be asked if you have
6:40 am
underlying conditions or if you have a job that is high risk. even though california says adults can get it, the system doesn't know that. should you lie? that's what some people are facing. >> they are like yeah. we don't care what santa clara county says. we only care what the cdc says. i am not going to lie. i am an honest person. amy: if you don't want to lie on the questions, they recommend you try to skip the booking process and walk-in, walk into the clinic. state officials say they have directed clinics to not turn people away unless they want -- if they want the booster. so if you just be patient with that my turn online system and with the pharmacy system, and wait until they get in line with california guidelines, or you
6:41 am
could just try to be a walk-in patient and go into the clinic and tell them you want the booster. hollyfield, abc 7 news. kumasi: the big game is set for saturday at stanford stadium. cal was forced to postpone after more than 40 players and staff tested positive for covid-19. these seem to be break room cases, since 99% of the team is fully vaccinated. health officials accused cal's football program of failing to follow proper health protocols. head coach just and wilcox says there will be multiple covid-19 tests during the week. reggie: reports of a smash and grab robbery at the sun valley mall. check out the display cases of diamonds. everything we know about this this morning. kumasi: and the big board at the new york stock exchange up by about 110 points. what's next.
6:42 am
reggie: and tiktok paying up. a settlement reportedly in the works. you and your child might be part of that depending on the trends they used. mike: temperatures in the east bay valleys are hovering around 48 to 53, possibly 58 to antioch and pittsburgh. most of the thong is thickest in the eastern sections of konta -- the fog is thickest in the eastern sections of contra costa counties, and we've got marine layer clouds covering the rest of us. temperatures in the 50's. the east bay valleys, we are stuck in the 50's through 10:00 and we have low to mid 60's from noon until around 5:00. advertise around 65 and we will top out around 63 to 64 degrees. but look how quickly we drop down to 56 degrees by 8:00.
6:43 am
here's a look from sutter tower, and you can see the marine layer clouds out there. any activity you are doing today, those clouds will quickly peel back because there are no high clouds stopping the sunshine like yesterday. we have the cold front roll through and a lot of sunshine towards the morning. as we end lunch, we will have a rush of high clouds and a pretty cool sunset coming up at about 4:57 this evening. no rain out of this, but more coming thursday. here's jobina jobina:. a couple of -- jobina. jobina: a couple of crashes right now, one on richmond at westbound 80 before cutting boulevard that may involve some injuries. speeds down to 16 miles per hour now, so really going to slow things. in the opposite direction, counter commute in richmond but also eastbound 80 before solano avenue, we are looking at a crash as well. both involving multiple cars.
6:44 am
in emeryville, look how backed up it is where those headlights are. a lot of people on the roads this morning. we had an earlier stall on westbound 80 near powell that was clogging things, so maybe that is some residual traffic there. but really busy and at the toll plaza too. metering lights came on at 5:34, and we also have a stall on the bay bridge, so you will have a slow ride into san francisco. ♪ i see trees of green ♪ ♪ red roses too ♪ ♪ i see them bloom for me and you ♪ (music) ♪ so i think to myself ♪ ♪ oh what a wonderful world ♪
