sinks, and those are things that absorb more carbon than they release. he's calling on other world leaders to join him. >> i am confident we can do this. all we have to do is summon the will to do what is right and what is in our capacity. as simple as it sounds, i think it is this simple. let's get to work. >> meanwhile, back on capitol hill, the house's top progressive says she's confident that a bipartisan infrastructure bill and a bigger social spending bill will pass this week, meanwhile democrats hoping to get a preview of what they might face in next year's mid-term election are casting their view upon the state of virginia where the democrat and republican are running neck and neck in today's election, even though president biden won the state by ten points last year. >> that's a race a lot of people are watching closely.

6:19 am
thursday morning, so we have a break in between. when we look at how much the last system brought us, and most of us, not a lot, but the upper elevations, mount tam had two inches of rain, and nearly two inches of rain in the santa cruz mountains. san francisco, quarter of an inch, and less than half an inch for the oakland hills and santa rosa, and that was pretty decent for san rafael, almost inch 1/2 there. san josé barely measured anything, and morgan hill was even less. today we continue to dry out. temperatures in the low 70s today. reaching 71 in danville and daly city will see a high of 63 there. redwood city, a high of 68. novato today reaching the upper 60s. our next chance of showers arrive early thursday morning. we have been timing it out, seeing when the showers hit the north bay and rolling on through
6:20 am
the rest of the bay area. most of us will miss it, as it's falling through the overnight hours and as you head out it will be wet but the rain will be wrapping up. south of san francisco, most of us will get about 0.1 of an inch of rain, and further to the north, looking more like a quarter inch of rain, so that's pretty good. we will see a chance of some of the clouds rolling back in on saturday and rain returns early on monday. mike, you have an alert for the east bay? >> i do. first, out of the east bay, the bay bridge is moving smoothly. it's just slow at the toll plaza. no alert here, just the backup. the issue for the north bay, highway 37 got word of a crash, a motorcycle down, and that's why we had that weird pattern going on. we will track that for the north bay. highway 4, slow through
6:21 am
pittsburg, and the alert is getting to the antioch bridge. folks traveling up to 160 and the antioch bridge, you will have to reroute and go over to hillcrest and back around and then connect from east bay highway 4 to get on that and travel into the north bay. just a note for a clash and clarification, since i covered that in the last report. a little slowing for san josé and 101. that's it, and back to you. >> thanks, mike. next on "today in the bay," "nbc bay area responds." >> two problems, a flooded car and an insurance policy that won't pay. we'll help you fix that. i am consumer reporter, chris chmura for "today in the bay."

6:24 am
good morning. generally for car insurance to cover a flooded car you have to have comprehensive damage coverage. it's optional, and millions of california drivers don't have
6:25 am
it. san francisco-based money geek estimated more than one-third of california cars do not have comprehensive coverage. as for the bay area -- >> that means there's 1.8 million cars that don't have comprehensive coverage. >> find your policy and look at the declarations page which should be on the front. if you need help reading it, call your company or agent. if you do not have it, adding it is easier than ever. you can do it online or on the app, and by calling your agent. >> if it's a newer call with new technology and sensors versus an older model year that may not be as expensive to repair. >> you don't have to wait until renewal to make changes. if that storm spooked you, you can shop for comprehensive coverage right now, perhaps. we tackle all sorts of insurance issues.

6:31 am
as soon as today, the cdc may green light covid vaccinations for children as young as five. >> bob redell is at a kaiser facility in pleasanton. how soon can parents expect the vaccine to be available? >> reporter: if the vaccine for kids ages 5 to 11 is approved by the cdc, they could start to administer the doses early november. we are already in november, so i would assume that means within the next couple of weeks, but, again, the cdc still needs to give it the approval. the advisory panel will hear various presentations from doctors about the pfizer vaccine and decide whether or not it would be appropriate for kids ages 5 to 11. the cdc director would also have to give a thumbs up. the federal government anticipated this approval and already started distributing doses to pediatricians, world health clinics and pharmacies
6:32 am
and other sites where children could get the vaccine. pfizer says its vaccine is 90% effective in preventing symptoms in this age group. >> as a pediatrician and father of five, i have followed this with personal interests and professional interests, and i think we need to trust the science. we have the best scientists in the country, who are reviewing this data and reviewing it independently. if all goes the way that we expect it, it will show us that the benefit of vaccination outweighs the risks. >> the california department of public health said it's ready to administer vaccines to children 5 to 11, and the pfizer dose would be a much lower dose than what is given to adults. once approved, check with your pediatrician or local pharmacy or your children's school, and supplies might be limited at
6:33 am
first but they hope to begin administering shots for kids in the early part of this month, again, assuming it has cdc approval. >> thanks for the latest, bob. 6:32 right now. people in palo alto have another option for getting tested for covid. palo alto unified schools is opening up a testing site for everybody. previously it was only available for district students and staff. testing is available monday through friday with no appointment necessary. with repairs now made, the criminal fraud trial resumes today for theranos founder, elizabeth holmes. the repairs we are talking about are the result of last week's water main bursts that was three blocks from the courthouse, and without running water at the courthouse, that trial was put on hold. they are looking at interviews where she defended herself and

6:35 am
currently the landlord here, and i work every day and i work nights, and i barely see the roommate. >> her body was found in a field near salinas. fairfield police say they also arrested two people from pittsburg in connection to the crime. and then council members in pleasanton city council will have a gun ordinance proposal. in 2016, a study says more than half of all gun owners do not lock up their guns or store them properly. other bay area cities have enact the similar ordinances including dublin, palo alto, san josé and redwood city. also today, walnut creek leaders will consider banning the sale of flavored tobacco and sales of electronic smoking devices. new this morning, san francisco school board members

6:37 am
has said the fire may have started when a free fell on one of its cables. santa rosa's fire department is confident the chance of a severe fire is now slim, but it continues to warn residents they should always keep up with wildfire preparedness measures, something everybody should keep in mind. >> absolutely. we have been talking about rain and sunshine, and now we have them both today in some places, kari. >> yeah, it's foggy and drizzling in some spots. let's say that again. one foot of rain over the course of a month in santa rosa, and now it's drying out. we are going to see some spots getting sunshine, and we're starting out with fog this morning, visibility down to one mile. we can see in walnut creek we're starting out with foggy conditions, and temperatures going to be little warmer compared to where we have been
6:38 am
with sunshine later this afternoon. mike, you are tracking all of the changes for the backup out of vallejo. >> there was a motorcycle down, and we talked about that, and all of that backup formed and people were honking horns because a friend stopped to help that friend having problems on the shoulder, and the person that made sure his friend was okay took off because he was making everybody mad in vallejo, polite people here in the morning getting mad at people helping each other out. and then no major issues. a build for pittsburg, and a build of 40 minutes from vasco over to 280. there's the slowing we see from 101, and 87 may follow suit in the next couple of minutes and we will track that for silicon

6:43 am
out what is going on, coming up. this is an off-year election, and voters in parts of the bay area heading to the polls this morning to decide key issues, and that includes two school district parcel tax measures in the san josé county, one in the berryessa school district and los gatos. council seats up for grabs in emeriville and tiburon. and then the mid-term elections now a little more than a year away, and one-third of voters do not have faith their vote will be accurately counted. another 5% are unsure about the elections, and more threats are being made to elected officials, especially women. >> we are seeing focused on
6:44 am
democratic women, secretaries of state, and we won't be intimidated and we won't stop. >> you can see the interview on the "today" show right after "today in the bay," at 7:00. and then a very important election in virginia. >> the election integrity numbers, 30% that don't trust the process is the view, heavy republican. the georgia senate elections came right after the 2020 presidential election. trump said georgia ballots in the georgia process were not trustworthy, and republicans did not show up and democrats flipped the senate. will that be the case in virginia today? it's a tight race. in a 50/50 race, republicans
6:45 am
tend to have the advantage because historically republicans show up to the polls. more reliably than democrats, but will they if they don't trust the election. really, the democratic candidate, terry mcauliffe should have the race in the bag but he doesn't. somehow they may lose virginia even though president biden won the state by ten points. where did this advantage go? well, you have seen president biden's approval numbers. meanwhile, will democrats pass these two bills. liberal democrats don't want to pass the infrastructure bill until they pass the build back better bill. joe manchin, a conservative, upset the apple cart again yesterday saying he's not ready to vote on this one so let's pass this one, he said. >> twice now the house balked at sending this legislation to the president. as you heard, there are some house democrats that say they
6:46 am
can't support this infrastructure package until they get my commitment on the reconciliation, and it's time to vote on this bill up or down, and go home to your constituents and explain the vote you made. >> and then president biden did appear to close his eyes for a while while attending the summit. we can't say for sure he's a sleep. it was 30 seconds, and it's not a great look for the free world, especially somebody his age. ronald reagan was caught with his eyes closed while meeting with the pope, and he was 71 at the time, and biden is 78 and will turn 79 later this month. we are going to be watching what
6:47 am
is happening in virginia. we will talk about it tomorrow morning with results, and in the meantime, i am on twitter and you can find me there, i'm @scottmcgrew. new for you this morning, a possible explanation of the power jet sightings. lapd flight crew took the photos two weeks after two reported sightings last year. the faa and fbi say that the images align with one possible explanation. so here's a retired airline pilot and aviation consultant. >> it's a very good possibility that the previous ones were also balloons, and pilots mistook a jet pack. >> the human-sized floating toy may be a life sized character in
6:48 am
"the nightmare before christmas" series. the faa and fbi do point out at this point none of the jet pack sightings have been verified. state fish and wildlife delaying crab season once again in monterey county. the official crab season was set to start november 15th. recreational crab fish something -- fishing is still allowed. >> maybe christmas. with just a few weeks to go until thanksgiving, and many people are already getting into the christmas spirit. yes, you heard me right. i said christmas. ♪ ♪ it's beginning to look a lot like christmas ♪ ♪ >> is it? yeah, if you have been out
6:49 am

6:50 am
decorations, and then i think about bringing out the boxes and stuff. >> deck the halls with kari hall. >> i will hash tag that, i think. well, not a lot of rain, but upper elevations have rain. san francisco, about a quarter inch of rain there. oakland hills had less than half of an inch. san rafael also had high rainfall totals. and for the rest of the bay area, it was much less. san josé, 88100s of an inch of rain.
6:51 am
a lot of us will see some sunny skies for much of the day. before we week up on thursday morning, that rain is clearing. not before leaving most of us with about 0.1 of an inch of rain. it will be higher for the north bay with santa rosa getting another quarter inch of rain. looks good there, but just not really heavy. we do dry out for the weekend. we are looking at more clouds on saturday. sunday we set our clocks back one hour, and then on monday we do have more rain headed our way. mike, you have been watching the roads. what is going on now? >> i am just thinking about that hour we will get back on sunday, but you might spend some of the time over here today on the bay bridge. a little wind advisory overnight but nothing major. a little moisture on the lens but nothing major. we have a big backup forming on the richmond bridge. highway 37, looks like
6:52 am
everything is off to the shoulder. maybe the motorcycle is gone. no injuries reported at all, and there's a crash heading down towards the carquinez bridge around 780, and you could have to reroute to one lane, but nothing major there. almost 45 minutes out of byron and brentwood toward 580. that's a lot of slowing, but no incidents there. that's good news. the south bay builds over here, and there's slowing heading into downtown, and that's traditional for silicon valley. back to you. >> thank you, mike. happening now, a recommendation on how to spend $374 million the county is set to receive from the american rescue plan act. already decide san diego $76 million of the funds will go towards hero paychecks for roughly 22,000 county workers. >> next, a quick look at the top
