6:00 am
that we get sent to us from the community, but the reality is it's changing every day, and we monitor them the best we can when we get the information usually from the community. >> police also warn of a spectator ordinance that allows officers to fine you if you are just watching. at 6:00, facebook fallout. u.s. lawmakers will get some answers with the whistle-blower set to testify before congress. we have live team coverage, including how all the negative publicity is hurting facebook's bottom line. johnson & johnson overnight requested fda emergency approval for a booster shot. we'll layout the timeline, next. this is "today in the bay." good morning to you. you are watching us on your television, and we are streaming live for you right now at nbcbayarea.com. want to say good morning to you. i am marcus washington. >> i am laura garcia. before we get started, we want
6:01 am
to congratulate one lucky person this morning. that winning powerball ticket was finally sold after it rolled over so many different times, and it happened here in california. >> one person waking up a millionaire. at least the person with one ticket not too far from here. we will have more on that ahead this morning, the excitement surrounding that. but first we want to talk about the excitement surrounding our forecast, with the cooler temperatures today. >> yeah, we're starting out with low clouds, maybe even drizzle over san francisco as the cooler air moves in. it also helps to improve our air quality, and that continues through the end of the week with fall-like temperatures and nearby showers. we can see the rain moving along with this cold front. a couple sweeps of cooler temperatures. first one arrives today. as we wake up and head out the door, we are seeing good air quality from the north bay down to san francisco and the peninsula. it's still moderate for inland
6:02 am
parts of the east bay as well as the south bay, as our highs head towards the 70s and 80s today. we will talk about further cooling in the forecast. that's coming up in a few minutes. this morning on capitol hill, lawmakers will hear from a facebook whistle-blower. she's a former employee who accuses the company of putting profits over user safety. >> it comes hours after the company suffered the worst outage ever. first, chris pallone is live for us in washington today. what can we expect from today's hearing? >> this hearing taking place in just about an hour, and we can expect the senate sub committee that is holding it is going to put facebook's business dealings under the microscope. this comes a day after the outage, as you mentioned, and now the silicon valley website
6:03 am
is functional along with instagram and the what'sup app. ceo, mark zuckerberg, posting this on his facebook page last night, sorry for the interruption today. the outage happened before a former employee testifies before a senate committee. >> the time something remarkable. this is right as facebook is dealing with the damning whistle-blower report. we have no reporting that indicates there's any connection whatsoever, but it is, you know, fire on your left, fire on your right. massive problems on both sides for facebook. >> francis told "60 minutes" she has tens of thousands of documents that shows facebook's disregard for safety, pointing out a social network turned off
6:04 am
the protections ahead of the january 6th riot. >> that is absolutely contrary to my experience, and contrary to the facts. in 2016, we spent $13 billion on security, and we have 40,000 people working on security. >> now, the senate testimony is expected to press lawmakers for regulations on social media platforms. as for the worldwide outage facebook suffered yesterday, the company is blaming it on a faulty configuration change, as they call it, but they do not believe any personal data was stolen or compromised during that outage. marcus and laura. >> yeah, that would not be good at all. thank you, chris. scott, let's talk about the
6:05 am
money. facebook shares could not have been happen yes. >> yeah, mark zuckerberg himself lost about $6 billion. >> the thing about facebook, scott, so many people are connected through it. what do you think the biggest challenge for the company moving ahead? is it the congressional hearings? >> they have been blasted in congress before, but i think it's two things. the places you use facebook to log in are probably going to want to rethinking that, because those services were hard to get into yesterday. and then recruiting, and facebook is painted as the bad guy of the tech world.
6:06 am
there's a lot. tech companies are fighting for employees, and people who want to work at your company to do good, and facebook has to convince those recruits they would be doing good at a time when you got a former employee telling "60 minutes" and the united states senate that they are not. >> one to watch certainly. it will be curious to see what the markets do today, for sure. thank you. and then as expected johnson & johnson this morning asking the fda for emergency use approval for the covid booster shot. regulators will consider the request on october 15th. and then new data on supporting the idea that pfizer recipients should get the booster shot. the data shows effectiveness drops off over time, from 88% protection one month after the
6:07 am
dose to lower percentage over the next six months. >> what we are focusing in on is hospitalizations, preventing and preserving our hospital resources, and to that end it's spectacular. >> the new study funded by pfizer is published in "the lancet." then the data released by the department of health and human services and published in the sacramento bee shows vaccines shielded 22,000 state seniors from becoming infected. nationwide the study found a reduction of 265,000 covid infections among medicare
6:08 am
beneficiaries. and then during a police chase in 2018, a police officer, hall, fired ten times. his attorney argued that hall made a split-second decision in self defense. >> he feels like the weight of the world is on his shoulders. he feels very bad about what happened. >> the case attracted national attention in part because hall last month was involved in a second deadly shooting in danville. that shoot something not part of the trial, and so far in that case he has not been charged. a follow-up on last week's water main break, and the pipe was connected to a transmission line and that's why it took nine hours to reach the valve and close it. 6.5 million gallons of water were spilled and approximately 200 homes were temporarily without water. a foggy start out there in

6:09 am
san francisco. today, state senator, nancy skinner will lead a news conference on what advocates say is california's worst air quality. last year california had one of its worst wildfire seasons on record and certainly, kari, our air quality is taking a big hit because of that. >> yeah, and it still has been pretty bad dealing with all the fires we have had across the state recently. just yesterday we had an air quality advisory. it does look like today it's improving. if you are heading out for a morning run around foster city, it's a better morning to breathe deeply with better air quality moving in. our air temperatures starting out in the mid-50s, and a slow warm-up today and gradually we will start to see more sunshine as we head towards the 60s there. we will see 70s there in hayward. heading over toward concord, 81 degrees. a lot of our spots dropping
6:10 am
about ten degrees as we continue to cool off by the end of the week. we'll talk more about that. mike, you are still tracking the garbage truck on fire? >> yeah, that's blocking the slow lane here and causing slowing as a volume of traffic has showed in the last few minutes. the dumbarton bridge here on 84 jogs around the area. heading north in through the area, we have your distraction for the fire crews blocking your right lane northbound approaching thornton. the crew late picking up here north of 85. watch for the slowing off the santa cruz mountains. easy drive here including the build at the bay bridge toll plaza. there you go. back to you. >> thanks so much. much more coming up on "today in the bay" on this tuesday morning. grab your bike or walking shoes. we'll talk about our climate in crisis series. a look at what you can do this week to help take action to
6:11 am
reduce air pollution. plus -- >> keeping chadwick boseman's legacy alive. stay with us. you're watching "today in the bay."
6:12 am
6:13 am
good tuesday morning. it's 6:13. as you are stepping out the door in santa rosa, it feels milder this morning compared to yesterday.
6:14 am
we have a blanket of clouds over us, and that will basically keep our temperatures from warming up so quickly as a front moves in. a nice cool day ahead. we'll talk about the cooling trend in our forecast and what you can do to help out our climate in crisis, coming up in a few minutes. here's our alert for the east bay north bay 880 slowing down through fremont. there was a garbage truck on fire. so before thornton we have a disabled vehicle in the backup getting over to the right shoulder. it could complicate things for the east bay. we will show you that and the ripple affect coming up. good morning. happy tuesday to you as well. another airline has told its employees it's time to get vaccinated or find another job. southwest airlines will require its workers to take the shot. american and alaska and jetblue told their employees the same thing a few days ago. united, hawaiian and frontier
6:15 am
were the first. that leaves delta airlines as the only major airline without a company-wide mandate. they will only play covid sick leave to those who are vaccinated and will get sick anyway. tesla will have to pay $37 million to a former employee that faced racial abuse on the job. tesla denies this, but a federal court did not see tesla's side. separate class action suit shows racial issues are widespread at tesla, and, again, tesla denies this. and then facebook took a hit on wall street yesterday. the tech stocks in general sank as investors moved their money out of tech and into government
6:16 am
securities. and then behind the scene workers have authorized their union to call a strike for better pay. the crews say they are not getting the same pay raises and benefits as writers andactors are. in 2007 tv writers went on strike so there were months of repeats on traditional television, and then there were lots of reality tv which was cheap to make. everybody wants a piece of the pie. >> now there are so many options out there. >> exactly. >> i remember as a kid when "happy days" was on, and everybody had to watch. >> yeah, you have so many options and you have to pay more -- >> yeah, i told my kids you had three channels and sometimes the president was on all of them,
6:17 am
and not "dukes of hazard." >> yeah. and then somebody in california is a lot richer in san louisa pweus bow county. the cash value of the jackpot is just under $500 million. maybe you did not win the jackpot but there's still money on the table. the winning numbers, 12, 22, 54, 66 and 69 with the powerball of 15. >> wow. congratulations. >> think about that as you drive to work this morning. think about this, too, trending this morning, chadwick boseman's legacy continuing to live at his alma mater, howard university. netflix is funding a scholarship at the university in the late actor's memory. it will provide tuition for
6:18 am
low-income students. the college was renamed after boseman following his death last year. >> that's nice. and then could the gram be adding grams to your waistline. >> and those who post food on social media also take longer to feel full. our producers scoured through our own instagram feeds, and they find we here on "today in the bay" post about food a fair amount of time. mike did yesterday. and that was on my birthday. >> what did you post yesterday, mike? >> carnitas. >> you have leftovers? >> no, we will make more tacos,
6:19 am
i think. there's a fire on a garbage truck, and then there's compressed gas of some sort on the truck, and they need a heavy duty tow truck to pull the larger vehicle, and that's what that is causing to the slowing. there's a disabled vehicle in the backup, and the fire crew there, that's what is causing the slowing. the unusual slowing counter commute. southbound 880 moving smoothly. 17, that early pick up for that crew cleared as well. no problem for contra costa county. the build has hit the toll plaza for all lanes. yeah, as you are heading out the door in cupertino, we are in for a cooler day, some spots about ten degrees lower. our start of the morning will be
6:20 am
in the upper 11:00. lunchtime temperature, 73 degrees. looking at our southbound high, 79 in the east bay. morgan hill, the low 80s. the cool air will stick around for a while. we can open the windows in the east bay as we reach in the low 80s in antioch. 81 in danville. hayward, 74 degrees. mid-60s for daly city. san mateo reaching 71. mission district up to 69 degrees. we'll see the temperatures in the north bay mainly in the upper 70s and low 80s. santa rosa today heading towards 77 degrees. here's what is going on. we have a cold front coming in and it will give us a couple pushes of cooler air. the first one at the leading edge of that now making it into the north bay with clouds. we will get a second round of cooler air by tomorrow. you can see there's not a lot of
6:21 am
rain with this and it falls apar before it gets the bay area is all dry as we head through the forecast. it's nice to see the cooldown, though. we're going from 80 in the inland areas to the upper 60s for thursday and friday. we're also going to seat temperatures coming up a couple degrees for the weekend but still very comfortable. for san francisco we're keeping an eye on the sky to see if the fog will linger. low clouds on thursday, but for the air shows on friday and saturday, it does look nice and clear, but it's also going to be cool. make sure you are wearing a jacket because the temperatures will only reach into the mid-60s. now as we turn to our climate in crisis, we're starting to make plans for tomorrow. the fourth annual california clean air day where you are encouraged to take action big or small to reduce air pollution, you can plant a tree or switch

6:33 am
the health leaders and some of the city leaders taking a closer look at how effective the indoor mask mandates were in conjunction with some of the vaccination rates. to paint a picture of what we saw in terms of the effectiveness of the mandates, there was a graph created and they used data from the state as well as the county website. what initially stands out is solano county is the only county decided not to have a mask mandate following the delta surge. solano county at its peak, the cases per 100,000 was higher than every other county in the bay area, but we should note they did have the lowest vaccination rate in the county at 66%. compare that to marin county, both of those counties were 90% or above in terms of vaccination rate, and their hospitalization rates and cases per 100,000 remained the lowest in the bay
6:34 am
area. as i mentioned, some of the health leaders taking a closer look at that effectiveness as well as the transmission rate as well as the vaccination rate as they move forward. just last week, i mentioned "the chronicle" spoke and said he was taking a closer look at where we could be flexible in loosening some of the indoor mask mandates, and there's no clear picture of what that would look like, but the discussion is taking place as we take a closer look at the data from the last few months. we're live in san francisco, cierra johnson for "today in the bay." >> thank you, cierra. we made it easy. we put together a list of where you need a mask, just visit our website to find out the rules by searching mask mandate.

6:37 am
five of his colleagues in favor of the controversial decision to reallocate $17 million proposed for the police department and instead direct it to the department of violence prevention over the next two years. last month the city council voted to redirect money within the police department to open one more police academy because of the loss of officers. reporting live, bob riddell, "today in the bay." happening today, testimony resuming in the elizabeth holmes criminal fraud trial. last week the whistle-blower was on the stand speaking at length about the red flags he tried to raise to company leaders. he is expected to return to the stand today. we are tracking the

6:39 am
are trying to capture and monitor this moving target in what officials have become a slow motion disaster across the region. so far they have collected a handful of birds, and they have their eyes on other animals that have taken flight covered in oil. hope you can join us for more this morning. back to you. >> of course, we will. the fawn fire in shasta county, the woman accused of starting it is expected to be in court. she walked out of the brush in the fire line saying she was dehydrated. she was arrested after being treated. and now to california's drought and efforts to save water. pleasanton authorities are discussing a stage 2 water shortage. residents will be asked to
6:40 am
reduce water use by 15%, and they will authorize a drought call center to assist customers. let's bring in meteorologist, kari hall, now, with how much water is needed in the bay area. >> when we look at the start of our water year and how it ended up with the total amount of rainfall for our water year. now normal for san francisco, we get about 23.7 inches. we only had 9 inches. at least we had a decent year between 2018 and 2019. looking at san jose norms, almost 15 inches but we only had one-third of that and so it was extremely dry the past year, and now we are in the highest level of drought, the exceptional category, as a result. and then looking at what is coming in this morning, this system will bring in showers to the north but it will be dry
6:41 am
again for us here in the bay area. if you are wondering how much rain we normally get in the month of october, this is where we start the transition towards the rainy season, which is our only opportunity to get all of the rainfall we need for the water year. in october for santa rosa, we get about two inches for the month, and san francisco about a inch less for the rest of the bay area. still dry and don't see any rain in the foreseeable future. heading over to you, mike, still have the chp alert? >> yeah, everything looks just fine from this big view of the map, and also heading south in towards hayward and here in san jose, and then here in fremont, we have the issue, the slow lane blocked by a garbage truck on fire. fire crews on the scene, and they are standing by because they are just making sure that

>> yeah, she said america will plunge into recession if we do not pay our debt. this affects whether we pay our armed forces and affect the child credit payments you could be getting, and the entire u.s. economy is at risk. here's the president. >> raising the debt limit will come down to paying what we already oh, what has already been acquired. not anything new. it starts with a simple truth, the united states is a nation that pays its bills and always has. from its inception, we never have fault. >> whether you think the u.s. should spend more money than it has, and there are many americans that say it shouldn't, that's not relevant.
6:48 am
democrats and republicans agreed to the money spent in part when trump was president. it's like paying your credit card payment, you already spent the money and you can't change it now. there are 13 days until disaster, and congress has not agreed to raising it. congress has not agreed to the two bills we talked about, the more than $3 trillion bill too big for some democrats. remember, none of this accounts for the debt ceiling. the white house realizes this number needs to get smaller. >> in order to have a discussion about the path forward which includes the recognition that this package is going to be smaller than originally proposed. what he wants to hear from them is what their priorities are and bottom lines are so he can play a constructive role in moving things forward. >> and a federal judge sentenced
