direction. instead of a cool ocean breeze we see a southerly wind and going through this forecast it is going to be a little bit different compared to the past spikes in heat because this lasts longer and looking at temperatures in the triple digits, upper 90s. it won't heat up that much in san francisco. but we'll get some more sunshine by the end of the week. mike, how does it look for the morning commute? >> a nice drive. i heard about the crash. the camera's right about here north of 680 on north 101. a car went off the roadway. perhaps into fencing on the side. no more injuries. chp hcene yet. rest of the bay south 101 at produce. trivalley typical slowing and a

growing pressure to do something about russian hacking this morning. >> scott mcgrew, the question is, what? >> we could slap more sanctions. good morning. we could certainly respond in kind with a cyber attack. you have two different hacking issues. one is coming from the criminal gang that's been spreading ransomware and now bloomberg is reporting the republican national committee has been hacked by so-called cozy bear which is the russian government itself. you recall it hacked the democratic committee just before the 2016 election so very serious accusations this morning. a real test for biden who said he told russian president vladimir putin hacking our infrastructure and certainly the political parties is off limits and that was just three weeks ago. complicating this the republican national committee denies the systems were breached.
the third party company based in fremont says only that it's aware of an attempt. the pentagon says 90% of american troops withdrawn from afghanistan. the u.s. handed over bagram air force field. president biden wants all troops out by september. the other goal of vaccination falling short of the mark dividing itself among blue and red states. >> now we need to go community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood and oft times door to door to get help to the remaining people protected from the virus. look. equity, equality, remains at the heart of the responsibility to ensure that the communitys that are the hardest hit by the virus have the information and the access to get vaccinated. >> another challenge for him is
gas prices. let me be clear. i have said this in this studio for four different presidents. presidents don't have control over gas prices. supply and demand do. that said americans like to blame or credit the president as prices go up and down. president trump had low prices because demand cratered. the prices are up. opec is squabbling about how much to produce. president biden said he wants opec to pump more oil but same time he's been restricting oil exploration here in protected lands. none had direct effect because none have been finished but he wants one thing from opec. another from america. president biden on the way to chicago today. covering that on twitter. you can find me there. >> all right. thank you. tropical storm elsa
barrelling up florida's gulf coast is forcing operations to pause at the condo collapse. but yesterday workers from miami-dade fire rescue shoveling digging with the hands and scraping through the piles of debris. eight more victims found including two sisters, a 4 and a 10-year-old. the president called for an update on the search efforts. >> earlier this afternoon president biden called to check in on the community and to ensure that federal government is continuing to do everything it can to provide all the support that we need for the families and survivors here in surfside and sends prayers and love to all of the families and the first responders. >> so far there's 36 confirmed deaths more than 100 people missing. hurricane elsa expected to make landfall well north of
tampa bay. hundreds of thousands of people are in the storm's path hunkers down now. >> jay gray is live in clearwater beach, florida. looks kind of calm right now. >> reporter: yeah. it's coming through in waves. we have seen bands coming through throughout the day. we are in a lull thankfully. from this marina, i want to show you. tampa is that way. this is the way the storm is going. dealing with flooding and things like that. we have standing water here in clearwater. the wind is strong throughout the early morning. ripped away the awning. signs wobbling and torn away. when you look at where we are you can see it's starting to break up a bit. shear took the top off the storm system and the backside of this
storm breaking up. look. you got a patch of blue there. unbelievable after what we saw this morning to now have a little patch of new skies and i think, i hope to continue to see it break apart. may not be as rough as it was especially jumping up to category one. flooding waters the concern with the storm. we have some here dealing with it in tampa and will deal with it as the system which is not as assembled as it was before and kind of in disarray and sticking together enough to run up the eastern seaboard and be an issue for the rest of the week so you have winds 40, 45 miles per hour gusts at times and the rain and will continue to be the problem. right now though we get a bit of a break and it is not all that bad to be honest. >> good that you get the break in between the waves of the
storm but there's more coming. thank you. >> reporter: yeah. dealing with the extreme dry conditions here but what they deal with there is very scary, especially family or loved ones there. >> the other threat with hurricanes is tornado threat and still seeing some of those severe thunderstorm warning and watches around there in florida. we'll continue to monitor that as the band of rain move on shore. here we see the dry conditions. wildfires. starting to affect the air quality with smoke coming in from the east bay as well as the coast and the bay area. we're going to see some moderate air quality today. santa clara valley getting in on the more haze and some unhealthy air quality. the temperatures stay comfortable with the upper 70s
downtown. we'll see upper 80s, even a few low 90s towards antioch. 74 today in fremont. near the coast still foggy, cool. 63 in daly city. 76 in palo alto. san francisco at upper 50s and low 60s. north bay temperatures range from the low 70s in mill valley. 83 in sonoma. 98 in clear lake. clear lake, the areas of the inland valleys start to feel the heat. to liver more for mid-80s for today and upper 90s for tomorrow. and then we go to the triple digits by the end of the week into the weekend when the temperatures will peak especially on saturday for the valleys and some heat advisories possible. as of rite now we are still looking good for today.
the heat creeping in to the forecast. looking at in the forecast next week it is pretty warm and cools off on tuesday and not seeing the intense heat in san francisco but some sunshine there as we have been waiting on that to get some of those clear days along the coast. heading out the door this morning, mike, how does it look for the commute? >> san jose. pretty standard. in the south bay moving. looks around at 101 at 680. just past the camera the speed sensors slowing a bit. 101 to 680 slowing and a crash, a car off the roadway into the fencing and there's more slowing that showed up at oakland road. maybe extra slow for that stretch. the trivalley looking all right. there's a crash marsh creek at
vasco. might be the reason for more slowing. the bay bridge toll plaza, the last look was the last with the smooth drive. folks are pausing to pay the toll. back to you. >> thank you. bart wants your opinion on how to improve stations. they're holding an online open house right now. they want to know what riders think about the improvements after a 2,500 housing units built in the north berkeley area. still much more ahead on "today in the bay" including reaching a pandemic milestone. the vaccine rollout success in the bay area's biggest city is celebrating. plus how about a four-day work week? the group making a push for the change for companies across the country and what it looks like. stay with us. you are watching "today in the bay."

matter. age. everybody's there. >> i'm clicking my tickets, as well. for many of us we love working the shorter work weeks but what if in the perfect world we work f week? >> now some argue it's time for an update for a four day work week. the work hours from 40 hours to 32 hours. >> there are already hundreds of companies around the world and all kind of industries that have moved but they find that it's
possible to find ways to make companies more efficient, to make people more productive. there's customer satisfaction that you had before. and the reason for this is that we have got all kinds of technology that is made us more productive over 20 years but the gains buried underneath meetings that are too long and distractions and that one quick question that turns into a ten-minute conversation trying to get something important done so in a sense the four day week is already here. >> all right. to get the talking points ready for the boss check out the full story and others like it at nbclx. it is 11-15 over the air. o lx.com.
all right. quickly approaching 6:00. the a's future up in the air and the city making decisions about the coliseum. a key step oakland made overnight. plus. if you are vaccinated you are protected. if you are unvaccinated you are not. >> a new plan that president biden is taking after failing to reef that first vaccination goal. the move coming as cases of the delta covid-19 variant increase across the country including here in california. we are in the middle of a drought but a major water supply in the bay area is completely shut off. next, the steps and project. this is "today in the bay." good morning to you. >> we want
