one, maybe 3 inches the peaks that will continue on and off throughout the day tomorrow as well. before things begin to move out of town. all right. in the meantime, though, here we go. the winds overnight tonight will begin to calm down a little bit. then as we head toward tomorrow afternoon. you see all the colors change again as those winds start to pick up late in the day. so kind of a blustery afternoon around the bay area in spots. but looks like those winds will begin to calm down as we get toward the weekend looks impressive. we're going to see a change coming our way. maybe some 80's this weekend. we'll talk more about that in your 1010 in a few minutes. thank you, lawrence. speaking of whether governor newsom's taking action in response to california is critically dry conditions. >> today he signed a 536 million dollar emergency spending plan for fire prevention. it will go towards a force management making home safer workforce training. the director of cal fire says that he's bracing for another potentially brutal fire season.

focuses on 2 main parts creating more housing and stopping people from becoming homeless extremely low income residents and racial equity is at the forefront. >> centering racial equity and equity in general at the center of this plan was not a choice. it is how the work needs to be done. we need to get comfortable and familiar with folks who are more most impacted by this homelessness crisis. much of this involves more money in the form of sped up cash payments and rental assistance for people affected by covid-19 to address racial issues. the coalition is calling on the state to measure equity levels observe progress and tie funding to that progress. >> rap is also aiming to get more people in interim or permanent housing using a one to 4 framework, meaning for every one unit of interim housing built. it should be followed by 2 units. of permanent housing and 4 units of homeless prevention interventions to keep people
housed that ratio. according to all home is what's necessary in the bay area. >> it's important to note the racial is not a one size fits all and it will vary from county to county, for example, the homeless as population app is different from san francisco, which is different from san mateo. >> leaders acknowledged these ideas to tackle homelessness are not new but organizing together is new and it can help to address how funding is used. what we're really talking about is is rethinking the way we live together. >> one of the looming issues right now is the state's eviction moratorium which is set to expire on june 30th. and this coalition is hoping that the eviction moratorium can be extended for at least another 60 days. this group is made up of bay area leaders in all 9 counties. and there's also corporate partners that are involved such as major companies as in facebook and also sales force reporting live in san francisco. dan

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. prescription 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 any of its ingredients... or if you take dofetilide. hepatitis b can become harder to treat while taking dovato. do not 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 taking dovato and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have kidney or liver problems, including hepatitis b or c,...

>> that's a good one. can, catherine. we're discussing bobo but people might be wondering at home. why we're seeing a picture of these ships behind me. so let me connect the dots for you all watching right now, these are ships with shipping containers that are floating off the california coast because they're waiting for the green light to dock along our ports and deliver the much needed goods to us, including battle of boba. >> probably like 5 times a week. like all the time. we love this place. >> boba is a popular tapioca. topping for flavored iced drinks. the first gained popularity in asian-american communities and has since expanded. so the bay area is home to many shops that sell it but suppliers like lead way international in hayward are worried they might not have enough shipments of the sweet treat to meet the demand for nearly 100 shops. they alone work with definitely be >> i think that's very sad for asian american community and the basic girls like me happen
inch. but the ball is just a tiny tapioca example of a massive problem. >> senior sales manager tommy wong explains covid related worker shortages at the oakland and los angeles sports. >> created a backup that is delaying shipments of many products. these containers seen floating off the california coast a few weeks ago. we're waiting to be allowed to dock in la. some of them are being redirected to oakland to help unload all the goods in march. the oakland port processed about 30,000 more full containers compared to march of 2019 before the pandemic. says that they would normally get 2 to 3 containers per week and now only received one container in the last 3 weeks, which means placing orders for months in advance compared with 2, but owner of urban ritual. david chao is confident they're stocked up through july. the product is a fairly long shelf life and they caught wind of a shortage early on through their distributor. i bet who's helped place big orders in advance. we have seen or and user customers trying to
order. >> mass amounts of the tapioca because they're fearing about the shortages and getting concerns that are trying to. >> get as much as they can so that they're not going out. lynn says their companies trying to combat hoarding by logging shipments for each store based on how much they were selling. pretty similar to the toilet paper. >> kind that we first saw at the start of the pandemic. so as business picks up again and people continue to shop abroad. the demand for shipments has shot up. catherine, can the worrisome part is that there is no end in sight at this time there's nobody who can really predict when there will be an end to this and things return to normal and suddenly there's a much deeper craving for boba out there right now. even thinking now i want we want more. >> thank you well, you should probably brace for some higher grocery bills. the latest consumer price index shows they are. >> not only getting more expensive. the price hikes could continue for months.
