8:00 am
>> from the area's local news station. you're watching the 00:00am morning news. >> good morning and thanks for waking up with us. on a tuesday. i'm darya folsom. and i'm james fletcher. we want to start off the hour with a check of weather and traffic. we've got john and rain is standing by. hi, john. hey there, guys. we are looking at still some cloud cover across the bay. >> but seeing a little bit less of it, especially further north in the bay area. and the cloud cover that had been resulting in foggy spots for the south bay is also beginning to lift. now system improvements as we work our way a little bit later in the morning. still pretty gray over the east bay here. berkeley view here looking at some clouds hanging out overhead. visibility hasn't been an issue for much of the east bay, though, this morning, mountain view still holding on to some foggy spots. so if you're traveling up and down one o one or 2.80.
8:01 am
do watch out for a few spots that could offer some low visibility from time to time skies yet again dry. no big surprise there. that's the way we're going to stay this week too, with 40's 50's for most of our current temps, hayward and oakland some of our more mild spots that 52 right now. reyna john, thank you. so like you mentioned fog. we certainly had that along the golden gate bridge. >> and right here at the bay bridge starting to recover from an early morning accident. finally down to under 12 minutes to that fremont street exit the richmond sandra fell bridge. that's the bridge is busy. now, we were breezy yesterday about 30 minutes as you head out of richmond. now here at 14. it's just because more people are traveling. so commuters are hitting that bridge more often. the san mateo bridge and across towards the peninsula. no major delays. we've been at 13 to 14 minutes all morning long. also looking at things down south lawn. 1, one look this year look good there as well. the checking on things along highway 4. we have residual accidents. some hazards. you still see things are pretty slow as you travel
8:02 am
towards concord at 37 minutes. we'll have more on that. we'll show you the south bay up next. but for now, daryn, james, back to you. thanks a lot. >> that breaking news is the fda pausing the use of johnson and johnson's vaccine in the u.s.. yes, 6 developed blood clots words was it caused by the j j vaccine. that's the big question right now. joining us to help discuss this is doctor peter chin-hong who is an infectious disease expert at ucsf. >> good morning, doctor high and we're here talking about this again after we know that we've we saw this earlier with another vaccine turned out it wasn't connected then, right. 6 cases out of 7 million people got the shot. how worried should we be. >> well, i thanks have me on james and darya. and i think what the fda did by pausing. it is really wanted to health care professionals to look hard for this potential facts. i think in the sense it was an
8:03 am
exclamation point rather than, you know, pulling it out of the market. so one in a million at, you know, not terrible can get to the odds of getting sick and dying from covid. so i think, you know, hopefully we'll get more information and put things into perspective. >> it is concerning, though, because these 6 women were ages like they say 18 to and according to the new york times, one person died and one is in the hospital. so especially when it seems to be rare and come out of nowhere. that's when people say, wow, it one in a million but still want to find that one. >> exactly. ends really hard to see link this with the vaccine. sure, they were younger woman. but if you think about that big britain of clots in the country. you know, we get about up to 600,000 cases of clots for year. some of them occur in the brain. that's in these you
8:04 am
know, more typically in their legs and in the long. so i think we need to get more i'm hoping this is not going to be a permanent we are relying on millions of doses of j j vaccine. so i hear you saying and as just a layperson listening that. >> it could have been like this is what a rare blood clot is all about. it's rare and hit somebody out of the blue naturally. >> and it could have been coincidental that they happen to have gotten the chance a shot. >> exactly. i think one of the reasons for causing it was given but seeing another similar vaccine, which is astrazeneca in europe. but you know, that has resume to a large extent around the world. so i'm hoping that this also be another resumption eventually. but with some guidance around looking out for these kinds of around guidance with treating these kinds of complications
8:05 am
as well. >> and obviously there are concerns about supply. will this cause a crimp in supply. the white house issued a statement earlier this morning saying that they don't believe it will the j j vaccine only represented maybe about 5% of the vaccine supply. they believe they have enough of the pfizer and moderna to continue vaccine as many people as they are hoping to. that 200 million adults vaccinator shots given out in the first 100 days of the biden administration. are you confident that the supplies will stay on affected. >> i'm confident that we'll have more than enough they will be a double play in the next 2 to 3 so speed will really be the su and politically opening up eligibility a vaccine so large a group the population. so i think that's really the the initial bump rather than the overall picture. so you know, constantly be bought more than a billion doses of vaccine in operation warp speed. so
8:06 am
they'll be plenty for everyone is just a matter of how fast we can get it. >> to folks. so i want to ask you more generally about. what's the line between? feeling one of the symptoms that they say should watch out for and what you should report. and i ask that because like, for example, me and my daughter. we both got moderna. okay. p shortness of breath fatigue muscle of fever, chills. trouble breathing, ok, so we watch out for that. but like my daughter, for example, just last night said, oh, my god, i woke up and i couldn't breathe at all. and i had to reach my puffer and i was scared. gm report that and who the reported just oh, honey, it says you're supposed to get these. so that's just one of the things and just forget about it. don't tell anybody. and we're at allergy season. i don't what are you supposed to do. >> i know it's really difficult. so i would look at a few features. one is that time since a vaccination. it's within 2 weeks. that's when it's you. number 2, it's you is how severe it is regardless
8:07 am
of what it is said it's not going we worried i i don't think it's ever wrong to to call someone to call the health care professional, although if you worry my number 3 is if it doesn't go away, if you know, particularly if it's mild. so it is going on and on and progressing over a cost course of days. again, that's number 2 wrong as a vaccination adverse effect reporting system. hopefully people can take in my of it. but you're right. i mean, many people have trends in thing. temporary things to go away and those don't. and that's certainly need to be reported well, and like you said, james is allergy season and i'm looking at the counter going, okay. had the shot like maybe 3 weeks ago or a little more. >> doctor. hong i thought we're supposed to watch for maybe 2 weeks like so she's outside the window. >> that kind of thing. it's all it can be >> it is coming in and gets
8:08 am
people really keyed to anything they feel right up to the shy. i guess that just 2 types of folks, like myself who kind of just want to not think about it's kind of or folks who really can't everything. i may be wondering if it's associated with the vaccine are 99% chance. it's not so hopefully going to feel s reassured. >> now we haven't we haven't had a chance to talk to you you know, the uk variant has really started to. come up strong in younger adults and a lot more contagious. can you talk to us a bit about this uk parent. we're talking about it this morning. younger adults really need to pay attention. they're not as invincible as maybe they thought with the original strain. >> exactly, jane. so that's why i think with some these reports of side effects. i think scaring folks. the chances of getting something bad from covid. it's far worse
8:09 am
than getting of these side effects that, you know, it would be were and your case in point is the fact that the uk variant is stick here. so it's going down that age groups and younger adults. there've been several 100% increase in cases in michigan and people in their 20's and 30's and hospitalizations, not just getting sick. so i think that's something to be worried as it as we face is new face of the pandemic. right. and we're just opening up to 16 and above. and so that's an age group that we want to get covered. >> and you did you you didn't actually get covid right. you got to shop, but you didn't get covid correct. >> yeah, luckily. i didn't get covid. get covid. so it's same with james and i and we both experienced that one or 2 days of. >> wow. this is terrible. >> and then you get through it and go, you know, what can you imagine now. >> having a month or 2 or having covid for all that time. we just had bad experiences for a day or 2.
8:10 am
and like you said, it's far outweighs actually getting covid and the risks of getting covid. >> exactly. politically as we learn more and more about long syndrome and the fact that 10 to 50% of folks. even if they don't get hospitalized, get symptoms. we get brain fog alteoations in taste and smell that linger. you know, 50, i think those other things that are worrisome to me much more than the side effects of the vaccines. >> okay. all right. so as we're just about out of time. any final words to people listening who may still be on the fence about whether or not that that they're there eligible for a vaccine, but they're still has it. and what can you say. >> i would say i definitely understand why people are coming if you're worried about these given what i know so far. i feel very confidence where a vaccine program is going. i think safety is the number one priority of the administration's cdc. so when
8:11 am
something is pause, it just means that there they just want people to be alerted and to investigate it some more. but i don't think it will be a long-term was totally okay. >> thanks a lot. we appreciate your perspective this morning. thanks to machines and they okay. we'll be right back.
8:12 am
this unplugged device is protecting our beautiful coastlines and more. put off chores and use less energy from 4 to 9 pm to help keep our state golden.
8:13 am
>> 8.13 right now. checking out the weather on a tuesday. you can see much mother nature must have just got her vaccine
8:14 am
will cloudy today but that will clear by the afternoon and then kind of see behind doors had who windy as well. this to doctors and oh, yeah. windy cloudy to start still breezy this afternoon. so that's going to be one of the changes from yesterday. it's a little cooler little windier, too. and that means that as you venture out there. >> i would keep the extra layer on hand today. you can get away without yesterday. today is the day that with 10 degrees cooler daytime highs this afternoon and that wind is going to be ready for it. a mount tam camp definite cloudiness cloud cover sitting above the bay. so you're not driving through that. i most of our bridges. that's good news. couple of foggy spots in the south bay around mountain view and san jose to watch out for now. we actually do have a low pressure system that is not its way in helping to push that high out just a little bit. this is one of the reasons today, tomorrow and thursday are going to be some of our cooler days of this forecast still an onshore breeze. but we're not looking at that ridge of high pressure keeping a successively warm.
8:15 am
so even our inland valleys are going to notice a big cool down today. winds from the coast making first fashion lee blustery conditions right along the shoreline as well as along the east bay shoreline too. so keep the jackets on hand in oakland up to richmond as well as on the peninsula. up into brain and sonoma counties. today. another dry one. we're going to stay that way in the bay. but look at the sierra tomorrow. finally a bit of snowfall. it's not going to be super widespread, nor is it going to stay for long. but for the first time in a bit. there is some helpful snow up in the sierra courtesy of that low pressure. that's just skirting across the region. sierra dries back out into thursday. we stay dry into the latter part of the week. today's daytime highs, 50's and 60's for san francisco and elsewhere on the peninsula. a cool one at the coastline. you factor in the winds with those 50's and yet you need the jacket. burlingame 62 south san francisco at 60 today while foster city san carlos in redwood city, egypt 64 for your daytime highs. south bay
8:16 am
temperatures. campbell in san jose, your 10 degrees cooler than yesterday for your high today down from 78 degrees to 68 degrees today. also a big cool down for the tri valley oakland berkeley enrichment, not noticing temperatures much different at all. you're still in the midst of a sea breeze still in the midst of some jacket where the conditions, no 80's left in the north bay. lot of us were there yesterday that really talking that on the map today. now tomorrow and thursday i mentioned we're staying relatively cool seasonable weather in the 60's and 70's after that are high pressure ridge builds back in and you see what that does to temperatures this weekend by sunday we're nearing 90 for some inland areas which will likely be some of the warmest weather we fell so far this year. reyna john, thank you so fog advisory along the golden gate bridge. wind advisory along the bay bridge. in addition to that, also, wind advisory along the altamonte past. >> so just keep that in mind as you're still driving out there today. 10 minutes to the fremont street exit. this is the best. you then along the bay bridge for the morning.
8:17 am
also the richmond, sandra fell. we're seeing a lot of slow down here. 40 minutes as you head at a richmond sandra fell. and that's because we're seeing more traffic and more commuters on the bridge today. the san mateo bridge finally starting to see a little uptick in a little slow down 14 is yet across towards the peninsula. but there are no accidents that are slowing people down there checking out things along 1 one to 80 as well. conditions are great little slowing but not by much. 32 minutes as you head in the parks will have more on that. up next. for now. daria, back to you. >> in the buzz with another unarmed black man being killed by police. just 10 miles away from where a former officer is on trial for the death of george floyd athletes can. all the press is but they can stop playing bay area teams played, but all of minnesota's pros cancel their games. yesterday. the timberwolves the while the twins, everybody feeling the weight of what is going on. former yankees outfielder well, former twins now with the yankees aaron hicks took

>> well, now to the latest on the drought with summer right around the corner. california could see yet another severe fire season. that's the worry we've got researchers at san jose state university studying plants in the santa cruz mountains trying to learn more about how dangerously dry conditions really are. the plant's me looking green. but what else do they tell us. well, the samples taken show no new growth which means these plants couldn't be more fuel for wildfires. >> so compared to the last few years. this is the driest. that's a surprise. these plants are stressed. they haven't received the right amount of rain that they require. and there not growing
8:44 am
the way they should. so we can hope that they'll recover some in possibly may. and then that could help us throughout the season. but right now it's looking pretty dire. yeah. the cal fire battalion chief says that they rely on data from. >> the university's fire weather lab and he says the information can let them know when the be ready to go, which it seems to be earlier and earlier each year the fire season begins. we'll be back with more in a minute. time now at 40. we'll be right back.
8:45 am
8:46 am
majestic mountains... scenic coastal highways... fertile farmlands... there's lots to love about california. so put off those chores and use less energy from 4 to 9 pm
8:47 am
when less clean energy is available. because that's power down time. >> if 46 and just as we are hearing that the fda has hit pause on the johnson and johnson vaccine. there's a big super site for vaccines open at kaiser in run county. and so it has a lot of people, you know, concerned about couple things. will there be enough vaccine? why right without change. and then also what do you think about, you know, is this make you for sarah stinson actually on the story for us up in sandra fell out at that new vaccination mass vaccination site. >> sarah, you've been talking to folks there. what are you hearing? >> you know, some people are saying doubters are always going to be doubters of the vaccine. but then others worry that this going to place more doubt in people's minds and they're not going to sign up for the vaccine. i can tell
8:48 am
you here at the fairgrounds marin county has been running this vaccination site and they're now planning to be able to serve 1000 more vaccinations now that they have partnered with kaiser here at the fairgrounds. the hopes to hope is to hand out a total of 3600 doses a day depending on supply. and speaking of supply, marin county health officials say the paws of the j and j vaccine won't affect the distribution here because marine county mainly gets allotted pfizer and moderna shots. the county will pause all use of the j j vaccine until federal agencies say otherwise. so let's hear now from a man who says covid personal to him. he's lost several people to it and he's getting vaccinated today to save lives and he hopes others get it done, too. >> it won't help with the doubt there you have. yeah. you know, a lot of people already has it in for whatever reasons. so that would certainly add to the fire service. if you want to place
8:49 am
that i think is just the says a small number for the total people given. i'm not concerned about it. i haven't done it shot so. >> so far marine has distributed 70,000 doses. kaiser was previously handing out doses at a high volume side of terra linda high. but in person learning is about to begin their so kaiser join forces here and the goal is to get this operation flowing very quickly and more efficiently. it's by appointment only. let's take a look at now who is eligible to get the shot in the arm. its people ages 50 and older or people 16 to 64 years old with severe or high-risk medical conditions or disabilities. people who work in the food and agricultural industries. teachers and childcare workers as well as emergency services, public transit and health care workers again appointment is mandatory and you can get that through kaiser as well as through the marine county
8:50 am
