kari hall will show us just how much rain fell. this is "today in the bay." good tuesday morning to you. thanks for joining us. i am kris sanchez. >> i am cierra johnson. marcus and laura have the morning off. we have a lot to get to but first let's get a look at traffic and weather. kari, how is it shaping up? >> it's going to be dry. here's the next system starting to move in closer. we are going to see rain chances very spotty, and we'll track it with storm ranger as we go into the morning. overall, we're starting off dry and maybe a couple spotty showers here and there. we know our water year starts on october 1st. we're doing pretty well here with 10.5 inches of rain for santa rosa. san francisco also over 5 inches with a big sur plus. we'll talk about how that
affects the bay area coming up. yeah, the bay area roadways were affected a lot. highway 84 is an issue. we don't know if the car crashed into the tree and knocked it down or the tree came down and caused the crash. if you know alice is, you probably drive through this area. over here in fremont, 880 is open this morning. back to you. >> thank you. this morning an fda panel meets to approve the pfizer vaccine for use in kids over
five. chris pallone reports children could start getting their first dose as early as next month. >> states across the country are finalizing plans to give the covid vaccine to children. >> in a few days' time, millions of parents across the united states should be able to breathe a sigh of relief. >> the two-dose pediatric shot -- >> a recent poll shows only 30% of parents are planning to get their children vaccinated right away. >> i think honestly a solid year of testing and people working out the kinks in it will do us better. >> but despite is the hesitancy
of some, doctors say vacinating the young will help keep schools open. >> i mean, it's just incontraversable that that set of vaccines is proven to be much safer than the risk you run of letting your kid get covid and rolling the dice. >> moderna has announced early data shows that its vaccine shows a strong immune response in children that age as well. in washington, chris pallone, nbc news. >> the u.s. is averaging about 73,000 new covid cases per day propping from 173,000 cases per day back in september. happening today, san
francisco may be the first city in the country to mandate paid sick leave for domestic workers, and it includes nannies and house cleaners. >> morales came to the country have venezuela in 2001. for about a decade she worked as a nanny. she remembers going to work sick. >> many times i think definitely more than 30 times. >> during that time she wishes she had access to sick leave. >> it would be so important to have actual paid time off and not just take time off unpaid. >> the supervisor, hilary rowen, wants to make that happen. she will introduce an ordinance that will give domestic workers like nannies and housekeepers
paid leave. >> it will create an app. >> it will keep track of hours worked. >> technically under our laws each individual lawyer is responsible to pay sick leave to its worker, and most employers don't realize they have the obligation. >> and the app will keep track how much money an employer should put in the pot of money for sick leave. >> it's a priority which was made crystal clear to them because of the pandemic when overnight many of them lost all of their employment. >> if the ordinance is passed and signed by the mayor, it could go into effect sometime next year. cheryl hurd, "today in the bay."
the third biggest storm since 1950, and we saw just about everything. not just power outages, but downed trees that kept crews busy. we spoke to an east bay arborists that said he is booked solid to look at trees. a restaurant in north beach forced to close after part of a tree fell on the roof there. and some families are still cleaning up after they were evacuated from their flooded homes in santa rosa. this is video of people get into a raft in order to be pulled to safety. most of the evacuees are home this morning, however one apartment complex is still red tagged. it's almost like night and day. yesterday there was so much rain, and by the end of the day -- >> yeah, pretty skies.
perfect. >> yeah, kari. >> we are going to see a mix of it all today, because some spots in the bay area could see spotty showers. as we go into tomorrow, we will warm up and become more sunny. the rest of the week is looking good. we need a chance to breathe and clean up and let that water soak in. looking at our scattered showers in the forecast today, right here at noon it's mainly in the north bay and could spread down to the peninsula and could spread to other spots that could see afternoon showers, and overall it's the north bay that will be the focus today. we'll talk more about the timeline of this and the temperatures in the forecast that will remain cool today, and we'll talk more about that coming up in a few minutes. next on "today in the bay," the major retailer samsung is partnering with. and then the new changes facebook will make on all of its platforms to help serve young adults, as they say.
i'm morgan, and there's more to me than hiv. more love, more adventure, more community. but with my hiv treatment, there's not more medicines in my pill. i talked to my doctor and switched to fewer medicines with dovato. dovato is for some adults who are starting hiv-1 treatment or replacing their current hiv-1 regimen. with just 2 medicines in 1 pill, dovato is as effective as a 3-drug regimen... to help you reach and stay undetectable. research shows people who take hiv treatment as prescribed and get to and stay undetectable can no longer transmit hiv through sex. don't take dovato if you're allergic to its ingredients or if you take dofetilide. taking dovato with dofetilide can cause serious or life-threatening side effects. hepatitis b can become harder to treat while on dovato. don't stop dovato without talking to your doctor, as your hepatitis b may worsen or become life-threatening. serious or life-threatening side effects can occur, including allergic reactions, lactic acid buildup, and liver problems. if you have a rash and other symptoms of an allergic reaction, stop dovato and get medical help right away.
tell your doctor if you have kidney or liver problems, or if you are, may be, or plan to be pregnant. dovato may harm your unborn baby. use effective birth control while on dovato. do not breastfeed while taking dovato. most common side effects are headache, nausea, diarrhea, trouble sleeping, tiredness, and anxiety. so much goes into who i am. hiv medicine is one part of it. ask your doctor about dovato-i did. ♪♪ good tuesday morning. right now at 4:41, we're still seeing high waves along the coast, especially this morning with the high surf warning that continues. those breakers may still be up to 20 to 30 feet. we'll see those waves calming down today with quieter weather. we'll talk more about that coming up in a few minutes. those breakers in the ocean, and less water on the road. here's the golden gate bridge,

we will still have a chance for rain today. one more system passing through northern california and may clip some of our northern counties. five times our normal amount of rain in santa rosa fell, reaching almost 11 inches there. of course a wrap up as we are going out in the backyard and seeing how soggy everything is and possibly cleaning up from all of the damage. livermore had over four inches of rain, and san francisco 7 inches of rain over the course of three days. mt. rose, 42 inches of snow. heavenly had about two feet. two feet at north star and kirkwood. unfortunately there's not a lot more snow in the forecast as we go toward the next week or so. maybe a light dusting. as far as our reservoirs, here's a look at how they measured up
before. the east bay mud reservoir had about 67% of capacity, and of course we have been doing really bad in our south bay reservoirs. looking at some of the numbers, now they have come up a little bit at east bay mud, and so all of that water gave us a little boost. now as we go into today we will see spotty light showers. temperatures reaching into the mid and upper 60s. this is much cooler than normal. only 63 in danville, and 65 in concord. half moon bay reaching 60 degrees. 66 today in palo alto and the outer sunset today reaching 60 degrees. mill valley up to 63 for a high but still upper 50s for ukiah and clearlake. this is where we have the best chance of rain. after the spotty showers today, we are in the clear for the rest of the week, and even go into halloween and our forecast for the weekend looks comfortable.
upper 60s for the weekend. there will be a system passing nearby. doesn't look like it brings us any rain. our temperatures will be holding steady in san francisco near the coast will low to mid-60s. mike, it's a very different view at the bay bridge. yeah, for a couple reasons. first of all, we can see the pavement and it's dry. that's great. also, we can see the lights. well lit at the bay bridge. yesterday the lights were out, and i don't know why but they were out across there towards the power. over here in concord we have an issue of highway 4 going east and passed willow patch road. the speed sensors show a smooth drive. this direction coming toward me out of pittsburg, that's the morning commute and it's still light and at speed.
south bay and the peninsula looking great, except for the tree down on highway 4. more coming up. >> thanks, mike. testimony last week in the elizabeth holmes trial finished with a scientists and a forged report indicating pfizer's support for the blood testing technology. meanwhile another juror was dismissed leaving the number of alternates at two. that juror was let go for playing a game during the trial in her court-issued notebook. concerns are growing about a mistrial if more jurors are removed. now, police say a couple in a car pulled up alongside a
woman in her 70s walking with her husband. one of the suspects gave the woman a necklace and then the victim realized they stole two gold necklaces she had been wearing. this image of the suspect's car was caught. if you have information, call the aloe alto police. andrew hall never took the witness stand in the manslaughter trial, and jurors received the case last thursday. a state lawmakers this week are getting an update on the massive backlog in claims. yesterday agency leaders clarified by $20 billion have been paid out to fraudulent

most tiers are getting a price hike and there's a new tier coming in march. once that starts that means a trip to disneyland during the summer or holidays could cost as much as $164. then you have to buy the ears and then you have to eat and get a slushy -- >> when you walk in, everything seems expensive and when you realize everything is expensive, you're like, oh, $22? that's a great deal. so the rain is moving out, but now we have chilly weather lingering. kari hall is tracking that. >> yeah, we are starting out this morning with temperatures in the mid-50s. it's going to hold steady here in concord for the next several hours. more clouds, peeks of sunshine and a chance of rain. we'll talk about that coming up. we're looking at the peninsula, and we're looking at
