5:03 am
speaking, in gymnastics, her body isn't functioning and recovering as quickly. the bottom line right now, simone biles out of the team competition. team usa, though, will continue to try to win a medal without her. we don't know her status for the individual competition. we'll learn that, we presume, in the next couple hours. from that big breaking news story to something a lot more positive, something people are smiling about. in the swimming pool and this another one of the big storylines. it's not just in the bay area, not just here in tokyo, this story is in alaska. yes, the breaststroke, the new sensation, 17-year-old lydia jacoby. look at the reaction as everyone watched her race. this was in seward, alaska. this is a magical moment. you can't help but smile. lydia jacoby was here with us behind the scenes. keep in mind, she is still in high school getting ready for her senior year. she brought her gold medal with her and she told me about all

5:05 am
competition. marcus and laura, we're going to find out now what this means for the individual, but right now they are telling us it's a medical issue, again, not elaborating whether it's a mental health issue or a physical issue. nonetheless, i think a lot of people are supporting her, hoping for the best. >> very much so. we want all the best for her, but she's so fun to watch. we're hoping that she is able to do the individual competition. >> all right, raj, thank you. we do have an updated look at the medal count this morning. team usa now in first place with 22 medals overall. china very close behind with 21. japan rounding it out at 17. the top three there. the quest for the gold is a three-way tie. top three countries have nine gold medals each. 5:05 and a live look at capitol hill. this is where in less than 90 minutes a critical hearing begins on the january 6 capitol riot. a house select committee will hear directly from four law

5:09 am
know what, if anything, has changed since the ban on flavored cannabis and cannabis vaping products went into effect in 2019. so they want to know what's changed over the past couple of years. they want to know if there's any new information in terms of safety or state and federal regulation. it has four options. it could keep its ban in place for unincorporated parts of the county, which is what the staff is recommending. it could allow electronic devices for medicinal purposes or allow the sale except for flavored liquids which typically target children. >> the children will look at it more appealing. and so they don't want that but at the same time those flavors give off a better product to help people like me because i have a condition. >> i think it's stupid. >> you think the ban is stupid? >> yeah. >> why? >> people should be able to do what they want to do, i guess.
5:10 am
>> if it's dangerous, they should take it away, get rid of it. kids don't need to do that. not anybody. >> reporter: the board of supervisors could impose quarterly inspections. that board meets later this morning at 9:00. reporting live, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> all right, bob, thank you. let's get a look at our forecast now on this tuesday morning. a little heatup coming our way? >> it's feeling muggy already this morning. as you're stepping out the door, we're watching for a slight chance of rain. other than that a pretty quiet day as we get a look outside in san jose. we should see the humidity dropping or feel the humidity dropping later on today. our temperatures starting out in the low 60s, some clouds. pretty much sunny the rest of the morning into the afternoon. it's going to be a limb bit warmer today compared to yesterday with our south bay temperatures headed up to 86
5:11 am
degrees. 84 in palo alto. oakland today reaching 75. you compare that to the 98 in concord and the 100 we'll have today in brentwood. for the north bay it's mainly upper 80s. santa rosa reaching 87 degrees. and we'll talk about what's ahead coming up in a few minutes. mike, any problems now for the morning commute? not a problem but there's something to watch. we're looking at mostly green along the peninsula and the east bay. one spot heading up to sfo. there is a project near whipple. we know about that. there's more slowing coming up to sfo. there's construction work going on scheduled to pick up around 5:30 so that may be one of the phases. the second phase closer to 6:00 and a change from red where i've been watching the last ten minutes. speeds are improving is what i'm saying. over here no need for improvement, contra costa county fine back to the bridge. back to you. 5:11 right now. coming up a deadly plane crash near truckee. investigators at the scene

5:16 am
you recall the u.s. is pushing for a global minimum tax so the big international companies won't pick and choose which country they pay their tax in. "the wall street journal" says big pharma is pushing back led by pfizer. "the journal" reporting a minimum tax could cost pfizer and other drug makers hundreds of millions a year. treasury secretary janet yellen leading the push for a tax of 15%. 130 countries have signed on to the idea. the bay area's tesla opened its financial books to analysts and reporters as it's required to do once every quarter. tesla made record profits. now it lost money on its investment in bitcoin as many said it would. but the other numbers are downright spectacular. this is the eighth quarter in a row tesla has made a profit. net income up ten times from a year ago. this is important. remember, it wasn't that long ago tesla was running out of cash. elon musk told us on the
5:17 am
conference call the tesla semitruck would be delayed two more years. he also said the cyber pickup truck on the right will go on the back burner, so tesla can concentrate on its current models. it's supposed to go into production later this year. a busy day for financial reports. google, microsoft, apple all talking money today. we think apple will announce record revenue as well, as high as $73 billion for the quarter. $73 billion is a staggering figure. and accountants and economists hate it when business reporters do this but we'll do it anyway because it puts $73 billion into perspective. if our estimates are right apple made more money than the gdp of costa rica. what about the czech republic? bigger? gdp is yearly. we're talking apple's quarterly reports. over a course of the year at this rate apple would outearn what they would make in an
5:18 am
entire year. it's staggering. let's take a look at what's happening in the futures. the fed meeting for a two day meeting and a crackdown on some of the businesses in china have the markets lower this morning. >> all right, thank you very much. well, new this morning, san francisco's popular museum of ice cream now confirming it's closing permanently. san francisco business times first reported the closure without any formal reason given, but the museum's voice mail does indicate challenges due to covid-19. the museum opened in 2017, originally as a pop-up installation, but it became such an instant hit and it remained open. >> i didn't get to go to that. >> i took triplets. it was pretty heavenly. >> i missed out. well, no matter where you're waking up, we guarantee it doesn't compare with where con kanye west is. >> this is the mercedes-benz stadium and he's still there. west is calling the stadium home
5:19 am
as he works out some final touches before the album release and he plans to live there until he's done. the album named after west's mother, his late mother, was due out friday but now it's expected to be released august 6th. i have a friend who actually went to that. >> his house? >> basically. to hear the album release in atlanta. he's a big kanye west fan. now he can say he's been to kanye's home. >> i do that in the traffic center sometimes. i'm going to stay here until the report is done and now it's done. let's take you out to show you traffic, which is pretty light right now. in fact, improving. the caltrans grid i just second seconds ago, all clear as far as construction goes heading up past sfo. speeds are improving right now going from the red right here up to the orange where they're picking up in the reverse direction. you will see flashing lights,
5:20 am
trucks backing up, of course, through the area. they pick up the construction zone. the rest of the bay including 280 as your alternate. 101 should clear soon. getting you over to the travel times, a smooth drive. a longer drive building up a delays down to 580. a look at the bay bridge. a clear drive there. no backups. also, you can see the east shore freeway. kari, from time to time i've seen low clouds drifting through. i feel the humidity but the view is clear there. >> we don't see as much fog as we're starting out at the bay bridge. we've seen it over the golden gate bridge and it's all a part of the system we are seeing. we've been tracking it with storm ranger as it approached from southern california now into the central coast. we can see some of those showers right now over parts of the santa cruz mountains. mostly some light rain. we've been watching this because there was a chance we could see isolated lightning strikes and it would not be good news because that could, of course,
5:21 am
move fires. all of the lightning activity so far has been to the north of us and moving away from us mainly heading closer to eureka as we see the surge of showers and thunderstorms off the coast moving in that direction. moving away from us will be the trend for this whole system overall as we've seen the slight chance of some rain. here we are at 10:30 this morning and the models are putting a chance of showers near the coast and in parts of the north bay. so we'll be watching this through at least early in the afternoon. hopefully no lightning strikes. checking out our temperatures, still a big range in temperatures. 60s near the coast, up to 100 degrees in brentwood. the surge of monsoonal moisture will continue as the high pressure remains parked and it brings in chances of showers and thunderstorms into parts of the sierra. pretty quiet but it will be hot. as we take a look at our inland temperatures headed into the low to mid-90s the next few days. no changes until the weekend when it gets slightly cooler into early next week. but we're looking at san
5:22 am
francisco keeping the coastal fog and temperatures in the low 70s for the next few days. and now as we turn to our climate in crisis, you've probably seen the videos on social media of the fires that develop and they've been explosive this season. and the wild weather that comes along with that. and due to our warmer climate these explosive fires are becoming more common generating their own weather, even creating high wind, hail, rain and tornadoes. i talked to a leading scientist on the front lines with crews battling our growing number of wildfires about the difference between a fire whirl and a fire tornado. >> the fire whirls tend to be transient, short duration. maybe like 100 feet across. when we're talking about fire tornadoes, we're talking about things that extend 10,000, 15,000 feet into the atmosphere. they're often connected to an overlying fire generated thunderstorm.
5:23 am
winds up around 100 mimes an hour, perhaps more. >> we talked about what his research team is finding about how these tornadoes form and how they can be as as long as an ef-2 tornado with winds up to 135 per hour. you can see the full interview on our climate in crisis page on laura and marcus? >> an interesting thing to check out. 5:23. up next on "today in the bay," a bay area icon remembered. one of the faces behind rosie the riveter passes away. how she is being remembered and her local ties. and our team always on social media. raj mathai took this video on his morning walk. the kids walking to school waving to him. >> hi mr. american journalist man. >> you can keep up with him, everything he's doing and what's going on with the olympics. and there is so much more at as well as on our facebook, twitter and instagram
5:24 am
page. you can find all the information needs right there. we'll be back with much more right here on "today in the bay."
5:25 am
want to make a name for yourself in gaming? then make a name for yourself. even if your office, and bank balance are... far from glamorous. that means expensing nothing but pizza. your expenses look good, and your books are set for the month! ...going up against this guy... and pitching your idea 100 times. no, no, no! no. i like it. -he likes it! ...and you definitely love that.

intuit quickbooks helps small businesses be more successful with payments, payroll, banking and live bookkeeping. 5:26. this is the aftermath of a deadly plane crash in truckee. the twin engine jet crashed into trees, burst into flames a little after noon yesterday. sparking a small wildfire at the near by ponderosa golf course. the faa says the pilot was
5:27 am
trying to land at the truckee airport not too far away. everyone onboard died, but it's still not clear how many people the plane was carrying or where it was originating from. one of the women who built ships inspiring the rosie the riveter legend has passed away. phyllis gould. in 1991 she decided the millions of women who worked state side for the war effort needed to be recognized by the white house, so she began a letter writing campaign that would go on for 12 years. >> her letters that were all maybe anything to catch the eye didn't work. but when she wrote to vice president biden, he got her letter and called her on the telephone and invited us to washington, d.c. >> phyllis and her sister, an engineer at the richmond ship

5:29 am
5:30 am
5:31 am
right now at 5:30 a disturbing discovery overnight when firefighters respond to a fire call in san jose foothills. plus, get the shot or you don't get the job. the new move from one bay area city as california sets the vaccine mandate. and an expensive build. why it will cost you more here than anywhere in the world. this is "today in the bay." not what we envisioned this tuesday night here in tokyo. tuesday morning back home for you in the bay area. a shocking development, simone biles out of the team competition. this is what we know this hour. keep in mind a lot of this is changing because this is all developing as we speak. here is what we know. the 24-year-old four-time gold medalist actually started the competition here in tokyo but suddenly pulled out and sought
5:32 am
the attention of one of her medical trainers. here is the official response right now from team usa gymnastics that simone biles is out with a medical issue. they do not clarify if this is physical or a mental health issue. that's what we know at this moment. we are going to continue to follow the story. the next question is will she be available for the individual final competition? again, that's what we know right now. we'll see you later at 6:00 a.m. with more details. reporting in tokyo, i'm raj mathai. >> we hope that she's doing okay. she's the one to watch. >> the g.o.a.t. >> we'll continue to follow that and revisit raj again live in tokyo. in the meantime here at home we're talking about the humidity in the air. there's some rain on the radar as well. let's bring in meteorologist kari hall tracking it for us. >> our mobile doppler radar is the red scan you're seeing there and some isolated light showers right there along the coast in parts of the santa cruz
5:33 am
mountains. so far most of us waking up to dry roads and also dry skies. but look at all of the rain that's to the east of us as well as to the west and some thunderstorms to the north. so i'm tracking all of this keeping an eye on our chances of getting lightning. a disturbing discovery in the east san jose foothills. arson investigators there are looking into a fire at a home where one person found dead inside. >> "today in the bay's" kris sanchez joins us live with what investigators are telling her this morning. kris? >> reporter: good morning to you, laura and marcus. so the investigators just left the scene here. the scene is now clear, but we know the santa clara county coroner will be working to try to figure out how it is that this person died, whether it was a result of a fire or whether it was something else. the fire was first reported to fire officials at 1:00 this morning. firefighters arrived on reports of smoke coming from the home on the 2000 block of the estate
5:34 am
view way. firefighters made it inside the home and got it under control within an hour. that's when they found the person inside. they say he is a man in his 40s. he was the only person inside the home at the time. now the fire is still under investigation. arson investigators will take a look this morning. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." new safety rules will soon go into effect. impacting those who work for the city of san francisco and the state of california. >> to help us understand what's going on, we're joined by "today in the bay's" cierra johnson live this morning in san francisco. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, marcus and laura. that's exactly right. protocols are changing. if you or a loved one work for the city of san francisco or at the state level, both of those entities are imploring their employees to do what they can to flatten the curve. now let's start with those working for the city of san francisco. starting on wednesday all new
5:35 am
city employees are being asked to get vaccinated before they start their job with the city. this is in addition to an announcement made last month that asked all city employees to get vaccinated once the shots are fully approved by the fda. now these rules will impact about 35,000 city workers. as i mentioned, it's not just the city of san francisco taking what some view as a drastic step in an attempt to flatten the curve. we have learned those working at the state level, california, will require state employees and all health care workers to show proof of a covid vaccination or get tested weekly. now this move will impact millions of workers in the state according to the state controller's office. there are at least 238,000 state workers and at least 2 million health workers in both the public and private sector. now our cameras are rolling as governor gavin newsom announced the new state mandate, and he says the fastest way out of the pandemic is getting more folks vaccinated. >> your choice not to get
5:36 am
vaccinated and to listen to these pundits that are profiteering off misinformation, intentionally misinforming comes at a real societal cost. >> reporter: so what about those that decide not to get vaccinated? a spokesperson for the governor says there will not be any fines issued for now, but they are giving until the end of august, august 23rd, to implement the new vaccine rules. we're live in san francisco, cierra johnson for nbc bay area news. >> i don't think we've heard the end of this one. on the heels of that children under 12 may be getting closer to being eligible for a vaccine. moderna plans to expand its trial for kids 5 to 10. the company is actively talking with the fda about it. the expansion will, quote, increase the likelihood of detecting rarer events. it may be ready for aprfl for that age group this winter. happening now a live look at
5:37 am
lawrence livermore lab. a planned strike starting today could disrupt traffic into and out of that facility. you can see it looks like maybe two protesters have shown up soap far this morning. of course we'll continue to follow that. it's supposed to last until thursday. organizers are hinting at blocking those entrances. this dispute involves some 200 skilled trade workers. when it comes to making it in the bay and construction costs tied to development, san francisco one of the priciest cities in the world. this is according to a new survey by an international firm ranking 90 global construction markets. tokyo is the most expensive for new construction in terms of labor and materials. hong kong in second and san francisco in third. just in front of new york city. happening today sonoma county lead verse a big decision on their hands, where to build a new county government center. supervisors deciding whether to build it on existing county campus or move to one of two possible downtown santa rosa
5:38 am
locations. one possibility includes combining santa rosa's central library and a city owned parking lot along e street. the county is thinking about acquiring a vacant sears auto center as a possible site at the santa rosa mall. turning to our climate in crisis and more than 1.5 tons of trash removed just last year according to a foundation. they hauled away 3,200 pounds of trash as part of 25 cleanups across the bay area. this includes events on baker and ocean beaches in san francisco, pacifica state and rodeo beaches, and palo alto baylands. overall 80,000 pounds of trash were hauled away as part of the nationwide effort. to dramatic video of the dixie fire still burning intensely. take a look at that. over the week the flames completely engulfing an alert wildfire camera, the 15th largest in state history burning
5:39 am
more than 198,000 acres. evacuation orders are still in effect in plumas counties. really tough to see there and then that smoke, there was some concern it could make its way back into the bay area. >> we're watching out for that. our temperatures will be ramping up and so some of the smoke may be settling in. our near surface smoke model does show some light blue where it does indicate there could be some smoke that makes a slightly moderate or a little bit more unhealthy for you to breathe that in. the bulk is pushing off to the east of us and away from much of the -- away from the bay area. as we get a look at our temperatures, headed for the upper 80s in santa rosa and napa. martinez reaching 89. it will be hotter in concord and brentwood, up to 100 degrees. san jose reaching 86 and palo alto up to 84 degrees. some upper 60s in san francisco. we'll talk about some even
5:40 am
hotter temperatures in the forecast coming up. mike, you have a b.a.r.t. delay? we do. not a major delay, ten minutes. it's major if you need to be be there five minutes ago. so we're looking at the trains out of sf. just the antioch line reporting there's an equipment problem at the station. i'm assuming the antioch station or somewhere along the route. if it was in san francisco it would be affecting all of the trains. so far that's the only one affected. the rest of the transit agencies, county connection and the capitol corridor, they're all moving smoothly. whether you remain the name or not, coming out of antioch, that's the direction. westbound highway 4 we see some slowing. not yet over here. i've been watching the last ten minutes slowly developing here out of vallejo. no backup at the bay bridge. there's slowing there as well as slowing here.
5:41 am
construction crews cleared from 101 but still something going on. we'll track that. 280 is cleared through the area. thank you, mike. coming up, we're just weeks away from the recall election. this morning that race narrowing. we'll talk about who is leading the pack on the republican side. in washington this morning the historic start to the capitol attacks, the special committee and all the testimony. no vaccine, no problem?
5:42 am
5:43 am
5:44 am
the time is 5:43. and as you're stepping out the door, it feels so muggy this morning, and that's because the monsoonal moisture is surging through. a couple spotty showers along the coastline including half moon bay. i'm watching this as well as our chance of lightning. that's in the forecast coming up in a few minutes. traffic just fine here in palo alto. northbound with the headlights, past university avenue. they're heading into the slowing in san mateo. slowing in san jose. we'll sort it all out for you along with what's going on for that transition. >> thanks so much, kari mike. one of the candidates seeking to replace governor gavin newsom will appear today in the bay area. former san diego mayor kevin faulconer will speak this morning in san francisco. here is where he stands compared to some of the other recall contenders. conservative talk show host larry elder leading with 16%
5:45 am
