6:01 am
police officers are investigating. but i do not see any vehicle involved. so. >> i'm still trying to confirm whether this is a hit and run, but it appears to be that way because there's no other vehicle involved. there is a body in the middle of the street. and it seems to be in this in the center of a three-lane one direction. southbound. that's where the body lies. visit investigation continues. i'm trying to get ahold of someone from the police department that could give me a little bit more details on what happened exactly. but we do know that this going to be shut down for several hours to come just because there is still the body. i don't see any sign of the corners. vehicle around. so they do need to be very thorough in their investigation. they still haven't given me any kind of estimated time of when they'll reopen this area. but. usually it takes about 2 to 3 hours before they even begin to try
6:02 am
to even open at least one side right now it's still shut down completely. so you want to avoid the area and get around it. i'm going to leave it over to rain and to get help. you get and navigate around this whole situation. but is still shut down completely on both sides, north and southbound of el camino real. >> all right. thanks a lot. you let them do their working to figure out get to the bottom of what happened and who killed his first it will take a little while to get that reopen reyna harvey keeping an eye on what alternate or health care can morning rain on. good morning. exactly. want to get you around that again, just so you know, el camino real between maple in roosevelt that's closed. >> main street is just adjacent to that. so you could take that also good alternate set run adjacent to that or one. oh, one and 2.80. however, i am tracking a traffic hazard over here on one. oh, one southbound that's slowing things down just one lane, though, is closed. this is at san antonio road in palo alto. so be mindful of that to 80. there are no major delays there. we also have a new traffic is that just popped
6:03 am
up. this is an am original 80 westbound at how street also send powell avenue or highway one 23 runs adjacent to that that's slowing things down from crockett to the maze. it will take about 20 minutes now because of that accident heading into the city just to the meter in lights on. so as you can see, a little under 12 minutes to that fremont street exit heading across towards the peninsula under 14 for you. we do have high wind advisory along the altamonte past. so you want to take it slow as you're driving there, the richmond, sandra fell commute. a little under 8 minutes. so we'll have more on this throughout the morning. but for now, rebecca, i'll send it over to you. >> all right. thank you so much. heading outside. we're seeing a mostly clear skies around the bay area for today. but the winds are going to start picking up as we get into the afternoon hours and the temperatures are going to be hot in some spots, especially inland. it's going to be very similar. so what we saw over your mother's day weekend so you can spend it outdoors and enjoy it. but in some areas it's probably going to be a little bit toasty for you. so just make sure you stay hydrated and lots of sunscreen today and just be
6:04 am
careful because those winds are going to be definitely a factor for some are higher elevations but outside right now the golden gate bridge looks pretty nice. the flags to just slightly you flowing in the way in just a little bit of a breeze there. but things are going to pick up closer to the lunchtime hour. that's why this red flag warning has been extended by the national weather service through tomorrow night. and it's for our north bay mountains, east bay hills and our east bay valleys. we could see gusts peaking up to 50 miles per hour in some spots. so definitely blustery very windy. por humidity levels that we're tracking. plus mixed with the hot temperatures. it gives us a lot of the fire danger that we're going to be seeing through tomorrow. now you're going to see it start to ramp up as we get closer to lunchtime and then really kick into high gear tonight. so evening commute home. it's going to be a windy one. and then as we get into tomorrow afternoon. that's when the winds are going to start peaking once again into the evening hours. i'll have more on just how hot it's going to be in your neighborhood and more on this red flag warning

6:06 am
let me s ow you the map. just a let you know which areas we're talking about. we're talking north bay, east bay. but let's face it pretty much all over the bay area and northern california. and i'm sure southern california, they are dealing with the same thing because the drought that dry conditions. it is gusty at times although right now i'm happy to tell you it is not gusty. but the conditions are ripe to start a wildfire by accident, sometimes by accident. sometimes they are intentionally set or a line goes down from pg need. but the bottom line is this state. it's a ticking time bomb. so to speak. we do know that wildfires are are our in foreseeable future. and that is why they're extending the red flag warning which basically means a caution to the people out there be very careful. do all you can not to axa deadly. start a wildfire. you know, over the weekend we got a chance to track down the

>> 6.30 right now. breaking news. we're continuing to follow this morning. a pedestrian was struck and killed by a hit and run driver on the peninsula right near el camino real and lincoln avenue in redwood city. that whole area shut down this morning. and that's where kron four's yulia sevices. >> starting our breaking news coverage. now the only. >> james, you can see both lanes continue to stay in close. and they've been close since 2.30 this morning when the call came in that there was an accident here on el camino real. let's show you a map. so you have a of a better idea of where exactly this happened. no happened between roosevelt avenue and maple. so it's about a block and a half
6:31 am
to block. that are closed down both south and northbound on el camino. so you want to probably avoid this area because this investigation is going to go on for a couple hours. they still haven't even been able to tell me how long the truck continue to keep this close. it was like last night about 2.30 that that the police came over here because there was an accident that seems to be a hit and run accident. there's no vehicle on on the scene here. i still haven't been able to officially confirm that. but since there is no vehicle and there is a body on the southbound lanes of el camino. it appears that this was a hit and run accident. but like i mentioned, it's still not completely confirmed. it is going over as accident on on the redwood city police twitter feed. so still trying to get some bounce. pa answers to some of the questions of what happened here. in the meantime, they are investigating. they are taking
6:32 am
the time the coroner's office hasn't even arrived yet. so this gives me good indication that this is going to be shut down for about several hours el camino real definitely gets very busy in the morning it's a main vein here throughout the peninsula. try to avoid that. i'm going to leave that in the hands of to help you navigate around this area because it's going to be shut down for at least the next 2 hours. back to you guys. all right. thanks a lot. you only. so let's turn over now to rein in the traffic center. good morning. good morning. she's right that is heavily traveled in the to lot of people call highway. >> 82 there. so like she mention of what el camino reale between maple in roosevelt main street runs just adjacent to that. so you could take that you can head over to one. oh, one or 2.80. good news is we had an accident earlier on 1, that was slowing things down. that is so far been removed. so if you do take 1 one or to 80. i'm not seeing any delays. so instead of taking 82 or el camino real. you can take that heading into the city a little
6:33 am
under 12 minutes to the fremont street exit also getting a look at the san mateo bridge had across towards the peninsula under 14 minutes for you. there. we're keeping a close eye on westbound 80 because we had an early morning traffic collision. they're still pretty slow travel from crockett to the maze under 20 minutes for you. there. but if you're looking for up to the minute traffic updates like the one we just gave you kron 4 using a qr code. the codes going directly like you to our traffic page just take your phone scanned the code and we'll give you the latest updates. rebecca, i'll send it over to you. all right. thank you so much. >> we're going to be seeing a windy conditions and hot temperatures iy some spots around the bay area today. so because of that, that's an increase or fire danger. also low humidity levels. it's going to be very similar to what we saw over the weekend because the winds are going to be returning. the national weather service is actually extended that red flag warning. the we've been seeing over the last couple of days around the bay area right now, though, it's pretty nice. we're seeing mostly clear skies. lots of sunshine
6:34 am
temperatures mostly in the 50's around the bay area. but things are going to be changing as we get into the afternoon. so the east bay hills and the valleys and then the north bay mountains all under this extended red-flag warning until tomorrow night. we could see gusts of up to 50 miles per hour and some spots, especially spore the our higher elevations. so just be really careful out there. we're looking at sustained wind speeds of anywhere from 15 to 25 miles per hour in some spots getting up to that 40 mile an hour. my speed in some other areas. so just be a again, be really careful. the we're also going to see some 90's return inland as far as the temperatures go 80's around the bay 70's at the coast. i'll break it all down in full detail. coming up in just a bit. for now, let's send it back to the news. thanks a lot of 6.34 in the north bay. yet another woman comes forward. >> with a story accusing windsor mayor dominic foppoli of. >> misconduct as a victim herself is a former mayor and kron 4. sarah stinson is live

6:36 am
he did to me was wrong. what he did to the 6 women who have spoken out about him was wrong. the dangerous attitudes we allow young men to have about women is also wrong. we need to solve both problems another victim in touch is town councilwoman ester lemus who reported that the polling drugged and assaulted her in 2 separate incidences for polling has denied all claims against him saying any contact between these women was consensual still, he decided to step back from his active role as mayor. but he has not resigned. so there is still a recall campaign that was officially filed on april 29th meanwhile, the investigation is very much ongoing it a general california is investigating as long with this noma county district attorney and we haven't heard anything about this investigation. as to where they're at with it. any findings that they've had. >> so we're still waiting for the results of that. meanwhile, the said recall efforts moving forward the recall campaign actually
