6:01 am
concerns over blood clotting. a live reporting next and all new what one senior cdc adviser is saying about the concerns. and vaccines galore. get your phones out. he'll tell you where thousands of appointments in the bay area are available and where 6,000 appointments will come open next week. plus -- >> we'll see you all in the big. we got fans to chase center. i cannot wait! bring it. let's go! >> >> he's excited. kent bazemore says the warriors are ready for you tonight at the chase center, there are restrictions and the buzz over steph curry, what he's saying about being this season's mvp, up next in a live report. marcus washington. >> and i'm laura garcia. we're also tracking a 4.0 earthquake in the mendocino
6:02 am
national forest, about 45 miles northwest of cloverdale this morning. it happened just after 4:00, about 4.18. no reports of dam or injuries but what a way to wake up. >> meteorologist kari hall has more analysis on this. good morning, kari. >> good morning. checking the usgs they were saying only six people report they felt it, it is in a remote area in the mendocino national forests and one of our lesser known faults, the bartlett springs fault. we watched these because a 4.0 doesn't happen that often but it is an active, seismic region and it could possibly trigger another earthquake on one of those parallel faults like the san andreas fault. as we look at how many we get, we get 100 earthquakes per day in california. most of them are below a 4.0, and in a year, we get 36,000 earthquakes a year. so it is a pretty active region,
6:03 am
and looking at the type of earthquake we had, it was a right lateral strike slip fault, that's the kind of same fault that we have on the san an tray was. it runs parallel to that so we'll continue to monitor that and see if we have any more movement throughout the morning. we're putting things out, laura posted on twitter, you can let her know as well. we will be tracking this weekend's rain chances coming up in a few minutes. mike, how is it looking for the commute? >> kari, i don't have the fancy terminology you used to explain the earthquake. i can just say it's slow getting out of san francisco, because of the police activity. it's safe to pass this scene on your right lanes you have them blocked and a longer, slow drive because more traffic is starting to leave the city two far left open onto the lower deck. the commute builds on the incline but in the south bay this has cleared.
6:04 am
eastbound san mateo bridge is one the alternates to theech. westbound with the tail lights is the heavier drive both at speed. back to you. 6:03. critical day for johnson & johnson. today the vaccine is up for federal review after what now may be two deaths tied to blood clotting and other serious complications in several other cases. the vaccine distribution was halted. "today in the bay's" kris sanchez is live in mountain view with a look at the discussion that's going to go on very soon this morning. >> reporter: a lot of people are listening to the discussion. a number of people got johnson & johnson vaccinations like the mountain community center where i am this morning. i want to talk about what we know at this point. we're talking about seven cases in about 7.5 million people who got a johnson & johnson covid
6:05 am
vaccine across the country. there is a new case under investigation. the most serious one to date, an oregon woman in her 50s died two weeks after getting a johnson & johnson vaccine. she developed a rare blood clot in addition to low blood platelets. complications are similar to what happened with seven other women under the age of 50, all but one of them survived. the oregon health authority says the connection between the johnson & johnson vaccine and symptoms is not clear just yet. >> the symptomatology and the duration of symptoms itself has varied between individuals which may or may not be related to their final outcome as well. it seems to be pretty variable. >> when the cdc advisory committee on immunization practices reviews the case data they'll review a risk benefit analysis of having a third
6:06 am
vaccine available following similar review, several european countries and south africa say the benefits outweigh the risks. vaccination rates continue to climb in the bay area. look at the map, in all of the bay area, more than 60% of people 16 and up have at least one dose. marin county has the highest vaccination rate at 77%, which is surprising because they have traditionally low vaccination rates and solano county is trailing behind at 48%. the cdc panel will begin its review at 8:00 this morning. we have heard dr. fauci say in the past that these very serious symptoms develop about two weeks after the vaccination so if you got a johnson & johnson shot and you're more than a month beyond, he says that you can probably take a deep breath and relax, just a bit. if you did get one of those johnson & johnson vaccines, i'd love to know how you're feeling about this discussion today and how you're feeling about the vaccine in general. we'll chat about that on facebook and twitter.
6:07 am
mountain view, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." this morning we continue to track the vaccine disparity in the bay area. some counties have plenty of doses while others are still struggling. santa clara county vaccination sites are setting records but san mateo county doesn't have enough doses to open its largest vaccination site, a point being underscored by county supervisor david canepa. >> we have zero, zero, zero for the last two weeks mass vaccination sites. >> newly released numbers show san mateo county is expected to get 18,000 vaccinations next week, that's more than double its current rate. supervisor canepa says a state senator is arranging a meeting with the governor to make san mateo county a bigger priority. san francisco supervisor matt haney among those leading the charge to get more people vaccinated in san francisco. on twitter he informed his

"the examiner" reporting sfpd seized 164 guns compared to six in 2016, the year when the department began collecting the data. san francisco is seeing a rise in shootings, up more than 180% last year, and so far this year, 73 shootings have been reported compared to 26 this time last year. a south san francisco man is in custody after police allegedly found thousands of rounds of ammunition and firearms in his home. here's a look at what they found. yesterday morning they say officers executed a search warrant at the home of a convicted felon. inside the home, they found unregistered guns and ammo. the man is now under arrest, facing charges that also include child endangerment. back to the pandemic. for the first time in more than a year, warrior fans will fill

6:13 am
decline into the city as well. mild build there. i just heard about construction that might affect one lane of that eastbound at richmond bridge. san mateo bridge or b.a.r.t. are your better options if you choose not to use the bay bridge. you can use that, the rest of the bay a smooth, easy drive and drives through contra costa county a lame da county, the longer drives are looking to find, ooh, that should be yellow at the bottom, we're okay but we'll break down the drive through contra costa coming up. back to you. >> all right, speaking of driving, looking for a used car? you may want to prepare to pay a whole lot more. coming up next the new problem vexing silicon valley that is also driving up used car prices. and running out of time, while off find a missing submarine inails. you're watching "today in the bay."

6:17 am
street and bryant street overcrossing there so watch out for the police activity just two lanes open. slowing into the city westbound, here seen on the map and at the toll plaza though, things are pretty light, it just slows from about treasure island getting to the decline, because of a distraction again we're following that police activity in san francisco. >> thanks so, kari and mike. 6:17 right now. following some business and tech news for you this morning, tesla's autopilot feature remains under the microscope this morning following a deadly crash in texas. engineers for "consumer reports" easily tricked a tesla model y to drive on autopilot without anyone behind the wheel. they say the model y automatically steered along painted last week a model s crashed int killing two people. police at the scene say no one was behind the wheel. tesla's ceo elon musk tweeted he
6:18 am
has data suggesting that is just not true. now to honda, its new ceo is aiming to sell 100% electric and fuel cell cars by 2040. he says he expects those types of cars and trucks to account for 40% of sales by the end of this decade. used car prices in the u.s., have you seen them, they're soaring. the mannheim u.s. used vehicle value index went up nearly 7% in the first 15 days of april. data shows the reason for the rise is a computer chip shortage, which is found in many new cars to a rebounding economy. hmm. it's a race against time in indonesia to find a submarine that disappeared two days ago. officials in bali say the vessel went missing two days ago and has less than one day of oxygen left for its crew and the 5 people on board. submarine may have sunk in waters too deep to recover it.
6:19 am
in the caribbean ash covered roads in st. vincent after a long dormant volcano erupted, april 9th after decades of knack activity, spewing ash ever since. look at that video, worrying scientists who are afraid it could erupt again. an eruption in 1902 by a volcano killed more than 1,000 people. back home the oakland and fresno zoos teaming up to do something good. take a look, 4-year-old salvo just arrived from fresno. the zoo has been looking for a giraffe to add to its herd after losing four older giraffes in recent years. the san francisco zoo now has six giraffes in its african savannah and safari and west santa rosa has a new baby giraffe. the bay area is going giraffes on this friday morning. such beautiful creatures. they are just so beautiful. >> they're really stunning to watch and we're so lucky here in the bay area, having some great
6:20 am
venues, safari west, san francisco zoo, oakland zoo. so welcome from fresno. okay. it's a little cooler here in the valley as well. let's check in with kari with a look at our forecast. >> it's going to be much cooler in san francisco today, if you're going to the zoo there, but we're just making it through the day and home schooling, and making the best of the opportunities to get out in the backyard. let's head to fremont, we're starting out with our virtual learning at about 53 degrees and sunshine as we reach into the mid-60s today. it's going to be cooler compared to what we've seen for some of our inland areas, antioch reaching 70 today, just perfect but much cooler in san francisco, you'll need the jacket on all day, reaching 56 degrees there, as the clouds and the fog linger near the coast. head to the north bay, it's going to be in the upper 60s with ukiah reaching 70 degrees. a breezy wind and i'm so excited about this rain this weekend,
6:21 am
maybe you may not be so excited about it as i am but we are going to start to see some of those showers just a couple of spotty, light showers especially near the coast and in parts of the north bay tomorrow afternoon. let's go through the time line, but a much better 5:00 sunday morning, we are seeing that rain coming down even wintry mix farther to the north, as we check out some of our upper elevations, there will be some snow coming down, and that snow continues in the sierra, while the bay area gets some rain off and on throughout the day on sunday. this is the first chance we've had a measurable rain since march 18th for the south bay. so it's been way too long for us to get any rain since we've gotten any rain, and we're looking at about a tenth to quarter of an inch of rain from the peninsula down to the south bay, as well as the east bay. north bay may get over a half inch of rain, although it is really good to see that, and the sierra getting about a foot of
6:22 am
snow possible, if you're heading there, make sure you plan around the snow because those roads are going to be treacherous and this is not going to put a dent in our drought. look at the rainfall deficits, over 21 inches for the north bay. we'll talk more about that coming up. mike, how is it looking right now for the commute? >> kari, you're going to have to allow a little extra time across the bay bridge into or out of san francisco. say ten minutes it will keep you calm and relaxed but we are looking at this problem. police activity blocking right two lanes out of san francisco, so from about sixth or seventh a slower drive jamming up by the bryant or sterling and then it's clear. now that's also backing uhm traffic and slowing down because people are distracted coming off of the decline from treasure island. there's a build for the incline as well, toll plaza not a big deal right now. it's friday so a lighter volume overall. the rest of the bay very light. you can see that breaks down the contra costa county drive. pittsburg and walnut creek,

6:32 am
known fault it can affect some of the parallel faults that are like the san andreas fault not too far from there. there was a 5.0 on this same fault at about 2016, in 2016 but looking at home we have a day, 100 earthquakes in california each day. we don't feel most of those because most are below a 4.0 but in a year, we have 36,000 earthquakes across the state and of course the most active fault is the san andreas fault which is actually the same kind of fault where this earthquake happened, it is a right lateral strike slip fault and what happens is the earth moves from side to side, basically sliding past one another plates kind of moving in that direction. we're continuing to watch so see if there's movement. we're watching that as well as the weekend rain. mike, what's happening right
6:33 am

the white house climate summit continues today. president biden virtually hosting 40 world leaders for a livestream event to talk about ways to combat climate change. the event comes as he pledges to tighten greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030. a handful of the world leaders are echoing similar commitments. remember the battle california was having over fuel emissions with the trump administration? well, that's all now in the rear view mirror. at one point trump's agencies blocked the authority of states to create their own emission standards. california responded by leading a lawsuit. yesterday the department of transportation announced that rule has now been dropped along a make or break day for johnson & johnson for the vaccine and its recipients. >> the distribution of the

vaccine was halted. "today in the bay's" kris sanchez joins us live to look at what's being discussed today. kris? >> reporter: hi there. that review is beginning by the cdc in just about an hour's time. here is a look at what they're going to be talking about. there are seven confirmed clotting cases among 7.5 million people in the u.s. who got in a johnson & johnson vaccine. the case of a oregon woman in 50s died is not formerly linked but the blood clot and low platelets are similar to what was reported in seven other women near age 50. when the case data is reviewed they'll review the risk benefit analysis of having the third vaccine available. several european countries and south africa decided the benefits outweigh the possible risks. without a third vaccine, vaccination rates continue to climb in the bay area in the
6:50 am
majority of bay area counties, more than 60% of people 16 and dose. but if you got a johnson & johnson vaccine and you are feeling a bit uneasy, you should know this, the complication rate is very rare, it's about 1 in a million people and if you are about two weeks after your vaccination, you're probably in the clear because those symptoms develop 6 to 13 days after people got their shots and if you are still feeling a little bit uneasy, the symptoms that you should watch out are severe headaches which some of the other vaccines present with as well, but if you have difficulty in movement or you have difficulty breathing you should contact your doctor. best to let them answer for you. in mountain view, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> good advice there, thank you morning, spacex launching astronauts to outer space overnight in its falcon 9 rocket. take a look.
6:51 am
>> three, two, one. zero. ignition, and liftoff. godspeed. >> there we go. just before 3:00 a.m., four astronauts from three countries lifted off from kennedy space center en route to the international space station. they'll spend six months on the iss conducting experiments and maintenance. talk about quarantine, hope they all get along, six months together. if you can do it here, you can do six months in space. >> it's a long time. >> no kidding, right? check in with mike on the kind of lighter commute in some spots but let's check in with kari with a look at the weather. >> take a look at this beautiful sunrise, as we start out our friday morning, sun coming over the hills in san jose, it's about time to go drop the kids off at school, the drop-off temperature will still be in the upper 40s so jacket weather needed, and then at pickup time, still going to be cool but at
6:52 am
least sunny as we reach into the upper 50s. we'll warm as we go into later today eventually reaching 69 degrees. 70 will the high in antioch, one ever our warmer spots. compare that to oakland in the low 60s and san francisco staying chilly as the fog and the coastal clouds linger, we'll only reach 56 degrees here and 69 in napa today. okay, so i know i'm not the only one but really excited about the rain this weekend. we'll start to see more clouds moving in tomorrow. a couple of spotty showers possible tomorrow but most of us will remain dry throughout the day, and then heading into sunday when the rain chances go up and we'll see it becoming more widespread. here we are 5:30 sunday morning the rain covering much of the north bay moving into san francisco and just going to be off and on throughout the day and some of our upper elevations will get some snow and farther to the north as well as the sierra. sunday is soggy at times but it looks to clear out on monday as we're heading back to work and
6:53 am
school and then our weather continues to stay dry. so during this time, we're looking at mostly about a half the north bay, head to san francisco on southward it's going to drop off in terms of rainfall total, maybe about a tenth of an inch in san jose and parts of the east bay getting about a quarter inch of rain, while we get our rain, the sierra gets some snow and check this out, up to a foot of snow in some of our resorts. just a heads up if you're going to be traveling there, that the roads are going to be very treacherous and you might want to hold off until monday before coming back home. we are going to see of course that much needed rain, but it's not going to help us out too much with our rainfall deficits. we need over 21 inches of rain in santa rosa, and those rainfall deficits running over 8 inches for the rest of the bay area, although it's not going to help us out with the drought, it may delay the fire season just a little bit gives the vegetation a little bit more moisture. we'll be watching that and mike, what are you watching for the commute? >> i'm watching these speed
