move forward. >> the deadline is here for san francisco city workers to be fully vaccinated for covid. a live report on the impact that will be felt starting today across the city, and also how it could delay your morning commute. the right to choose going before the u.s. supreme court this morning. why some fear the controversial case in texas may forever change abortion laws across the united states. plus a halloween weekend tragedy in gilroy. deadly gunfire at a city council members home, and what authorities are saying about the young man now in custody. this is "today in the bay." good monday morning to you. november 1st, it is. i am marcus washington. >> it is. i am laura garcia. we will have a look at your morning commute with mike in just a little bit, but let's check in with meteorologist, kari hall. she's tracking rain already falling in the north bay. >> yeah, it's off and on and light for much of the
microclimate weather. we have seen rain around napa and sonoma and also between santa rosa and novato getting lighter now, and there's a batch of rain coming over the hill soon and making it a wet commute along 101 and the north bay. the rest of the bay area not seeing the rain yet, and we are going to see heavier downpours on parts of the peninsula and the north bay. we will talk more about how much rain you can expect where you live coming up in a few minutes. >> sounds good, kari. today is the deadline for san francisco city employees to show they are fully vaccinated. >> one agency says some employees are holding out, and cierra johnson joins us where some muni riders will have to find an alternate route. >> reporter: good morning. yeah, the decision by some muni
riders are impacted by routes like this one here in the city. look at your screen, and we have a breakdown of which routes are temporarily canceled. it includes one california short route from downtown san francisco to the presidio. 14r mission rapid short route, and next weekend the 30 stockton short and 49 van ness short weekend routes will be suspended. taking a look at the numbers, a spokesperson said 123 employees have not complied with the vaccine mandate, and this is out of 6,000 workers. that number may not seem significant but they tell us that number is significant enough to at least temporarily impact those routes. the agency tells us if they receive any last-minute vaccine verifications, they will re-evaluate the suspended lines. we spoke with the decision of
some drivers to not get vaccinated is disappointing. >> i am a restaurant manager an do it and move forward. >> it's important to note that the suspended routes are supplemental so they support other existing routes, and passengers will not lose the ability to get around. we will, of course, continue to follow the story. we will keep you updated. if we receive any updated numbers on the muni drivers submitting that proof or getting vaccinated, we will let you know when the routes come back online. live in san francisco, cierra johnson for "today in the bay." >> thank you, cierra. a live look in new york city where a vaccination deadline is being enforced. new york city fire department is dealing with a sickout in protests of the city's new mandate. since friday some 2,000
firefighters have called in sick and are on medical leave. all city employees had to have one shot by friday to stay on the job. over the next month the supreme court will hear a series of cases which may fundamentally change abortion access in the u.s. happening today it kicks off as justices hear the arguments surrounding the recent controversial texas abortion law. chris pallone is outside the supreme court. we know how this is presented as a big part here. what part of the law will they be focusing on? >> yeah, marcus, great question. today's arguments are focused very narrowly on procedural questions in lawsuits challenging texas's new anti-abortion law. today's arguments also set the stage for a more direct challenge to the constitutionality of abortion coming next month. as we have been reporting, that
texas law bans abortion after fetal heartbeats are detected, and that's around six weeks, and there are no exceptions for rape or the law saves lives, but advocacy groups and the biden administration are challenging the law and many calling it the harshest infringement on the law since roe v. wade. >> the question is whether an order blocking the state from doing anything to enforce sb 8 will also block private parties from enforcing that, and copycat lawsuits by other anti-abortion advocates, and that's the tricky part here. >> the biden administration asked the supreme court to block enforcement of the law and the court declined and insist fast tracking today's oral argument. one month from today the court will hear arguments in a case
that could more directly address whether abortion is constitutional, and if the challenge to a new mississippi state law that bans abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy, marcus. >> yeah, i can hear already people are out there showing up for today's hearing. chris, i want to ask before we go, what are some of the likely outcomes here and when will they rule on the case? >> well, of course, we're used to the court ruling in june at the end of the term, but because of the way they fast tracked the hearings in the oral arguments, it's a span of a week to ten days, and there are court watchers that speculate they could decide this much more quickly than they normally do, and when they rule on this it's very likely that if they decide that the people who are pursuing to block the law are able to do so and if they have standing, and this whole texas law could go back to the lower courts to be adjudicated, so it could be a
long time before we know whether the texas law is actually constitutional or not. >> i know it's loud and i can hear the people there, and so is there a large presence? >> i wish i could swing around, but the way we are hemmed in here, i would say there are probably 50 people on each side of the dividing line, both pro and against the texas abortion law. they are vocal, and they have speakers and things like that, but it's a small crowd on both sides right now. >> all right, chris pallone in washington. thank you. it's 6:07 right now. developing this morning a teenager facing charges for a shooting outside of the home of a city council member. he is accused of shooting four people outside of rebeca
armendariz's house about 1:00 saturday morning. one died and two are in critical. police are not revealing a motive at this time. authorities in fremont are trying to figure out what caused a deadly house fire on saturday night. this happened at a home on sras ngata court. firefighters say they found a fourth person inside that home, and so far there's no update on that investigation. if you live in cloverdale, there's a boil water advisory due to a water main break. we will be told when tap water is safe to use again without boiling, and that should be in the next three days. 6:08. taking a live look outside of the san francisco bay. other parts of the bay area will
soon see rain as well. did you bring your umbrella this morning? >> if you didn't, and you are still at home, make sure you take it with you. >> quick, run to the car. >> yeah, i like to have a jacket with a hood on it, and you can flip it up, and i don't like to deal with the umbrella and everything, but whatever protects you from the rain. make sure you are prepared. we powered up storm ranger and we are prepared to track this as well as we see light showers moving through parts of the marin county and sonoma county and moving over towards napa county. it's hit or miss. it's light rain moving through. this is what we have seen for the past couple of hours. we will get heavier, more widespread for the north bay. the rest of the bay area looking at hit or miss showers. so for the peninsula, you won't see spots like this in palo alto until 9:00.
we will be watching this by late morning, moving down the peninsula and eventually into the rest of the bay area. we'll talk more about that. mike, you are seeing more of a backup now? >> yeah, the roadways are still dry, and the bay bridge toll plaza, the backup because the metering lights have been on for 15 or 20 minutes and it's slow across the span, and that will keep it moving smoothly there. rain north of novato, and no problems reported there. more details coming up. i wanted to make sure i showed you slowing here into sunol, and into fremont out of sunol, and the crash is on the shoulder. light at the altamont pass, and more on that coming up but the rest of the bay pretty standard.
a record buy in california. the most expensive home purchased in state history. just how much one man paid for his southern california mansion and his ties to silicon valley. speaking of riches. an idea goes viral on the internet that billionaiee will little blip on the dow. a historic downpour proved to be a real test for the napa river. it was recently restored to prevent flooding, and residents are concerned about climate change. you can read more about this on nbcbayarea.com/climateincrisis.
good monday morning. we're now at 6:14, and we're walking out the door to some light rain again in the north bay. we have got stormranger, and santa rosa waking up to wet weather. we will be tracking that. we'll talk about when you can see that across the rest of the bay area, coming up in a few minutes. looking over here, the bay bridge toll plaza continues with the build. that's not a surprise. i will explain why we have a surprise for folks driving through the altamont pass, though, this morning. good morning. happy monday to you. it has been said the richest man in the world, elon musk, can solve world hunger, and musk is saying this morning, prove it.
the idea that a single donation of $6 billion from musk could feed the world apparently, forever, came up on tv and then took on a life of its own on social media. >> i ask any billionaire, come with me on one trip and let me show you the reality. this is not some humanitarian scheme to raismany. i want to put the world food program out of business. my god, people are dying out there. every four seconds somebody is dying out there from hunger-related causes. we have a solution, we have a vaccine for this, and it's called money. >> this idea that musk can somehow solve world hunger took on a life of his own, and the head of the world food program, david beasley, he just did not single out musk, and named
others. elon musk replied, he said if the world food program could solve world hunger, i will sell. there's no question more money would help, but solve is a big reach. musk does not donate a lot to charity, a fraction of what others compared to him do. it's one of those things where it would be nice, where somebody bring me diapers and you have enough on your hands. >> yeah. literally. don't want it. thanks, scott.
let's talk about this. a malibu mansion selling for $177 million. cha-ching. yeah, making it the most expensive home sale in state history. it was purchased by silicon valley venture capitalists, and the estate sits on several acres and has a movie theater and two guests homes. a mountain view woman left a bowl of candy outside her door, and the candy was nearly gone by the time a group of girls arrived. at first they take a few pieces, and then they see the note and then they add a lot more candy to the bowl for the next trick-or-treaters to come around. >> that's really nice. >> isn't that nice? >> i love seeing that. >> didn't know anybody was recording. >> thank you, ladies. >> it will all come back.
makeup artists and celebs have a lot of fun. >> first off, check out this, this is lizzo as baby yoda. this is ariana grande, and she's dressed up as a creature from "the black lagoon." this is cierra, yeah, she's all three, and she went on to dress up as selena. she out did herself this year. that's a lot of work. >> wow. >> she does look like left eye and chile. she nailed the selena one as well. >> pretty cool. >> i don't have that much time, though. >> they have makeup artists, too. >> i don't have that kind of money. i want to dress me up as four people this year and take pictures and post it online.
>> i am sure i have something in the closet, marcus. >> i will hold that to you next year. we'll see. a lot of people probably tired this morning too, and halloween should always be saturday night. >> yeah, it was not too bad. i love the fact that it gets dark early so you can head out around 5:30 or 6:00, and get back at home at 7:00. that's what we did yesterday. the rain held off, and now we are walking back to work to some rain. we're walking out the door this morning in the north bay to some light showers, and that may have you running back in to get the jacket or umbrella. we will see showers moving through and spreading west to east. if you are seeing it just to the west of you on radar, it's coming your way. you can track that if you have the nbc bay area app. it gives you an alert as rain is approaching location, so gives you a heads up if you are on
your way to work. we see the rain moving through. we like this. it's a lighter storm. we had a few days before the next storm moves in on wednesday night into thursday. let's time it out and see how much rain we will see today. just kind of breaks up before it moves into much of the east bay as well as the south bay. this is what we normally see with these kinds of storms moving in. the north bay getting in some spots over half an inch of rain, and it will be lighter for napa, a quarter inch of rain. the east bay getting quarter inch of rain, and maybe lighter as we get a look at the rainfall rain update. overall, we're still extremely dry. it's nice to see that we have a surplus of rain for all of our microclimates right now after the historic storm. temperatures today stay cool, so it helps to hold that moisture into the grass.
if you are looking at your automatic water sensors for the lawn, yeah, keep it off for today. we are going to see more rain as we go through the forecast, and again, late on wednesday into thursday. both of these storms are light, so we're not expecting a big soaker. into the weekend, we will see more clouds. daylight saving time ends this sunday, so there's always that reminder to fall back. of course we will remind you more this week. mike, you are seeing a lighter monday drive, too. >> yeah, for some. we'll qualify that, for some. 101, starting to see more slowing coming up. little slowing for 680 at vargas, and a crash is on the shoulder. here the altamont pass, very light traffic compared to what people are used to coming over here because of a crash here in tracy.
there's a jackknifed big rig, and there's a crash and electrical wires that could be involved, and that's a benefit for folks heading on the interchange from livermore. a major injury crash, the second in 24 hours in the area of concord, and we're tracking that. 242 northbound is your alternate, and it pushes that way. the backup at the bay bridge, it's still there for some.

they were high and then they got medium and back up and now low. look at every other president. the same thing has happened. that's not why i ran. i did not run to determine how well i will do in the polls. i ran to make sure that i followed through on what i said i would do as president of the united states. >> president biden spoke at the g20 summit in rome. he's in scotland for the climate summit there, and he will push other leaders to cut carbon emissions as we in the u.s. do not have a clean energy deal passed. now democrats hope to have a floor vote on that clean energy deal. part of the build back better bill, and the bipartisan infrastructure bill in the house no later than tomorrow. we'll be tracking all of the discussions at the u.n. climate change summit and reporting progress to you throughout the week on all of our nbc bay area newscasts. we also have our eyes on the governor's race in virginia. that's tomorrow.

it also does look pretty weak. here's a look at the hour-by-hour forecast where we see rain moving in but for parts of the east bay and tri-valley, looks light. so the rainfall totals will be much less. take a look at what one computer model is showing with the potential of getting over half an inch of rain in ukiah, and napa may only see a quarter inch of rain and then a quarter inch of rain in parts of the east bay down to the south bay. the water update, it's nice to see one month in we have a big surplus. and our temperatures stay in the low 60s for today. off and onshowers will be moving out tonight and the rest of the forecast will be warming up for tuesday and thursday, and then showers are back looking light. this weekend we fall back, meaning daylight saving time
