6:01 am
this morning his family reports that he has to come to that illness again dying early this morning at the age of 84 colin powell, of course, the n% first black chairman of the joint chiefs of staff when he was appointed back in 1989 a role in which he saw the u.s. invasion of panama. later, the u.s. invasion of kuwait to oust the iraqi army in 1991 again, serving both republican and democratic administrations in his long and storied career. you may remember, though, that his reputation did take a hit back in 2000, 3 when he worked for the un security council and made the case for the u.s. war in iraq claiming that saddam hussein had weapons of mass destruction. that was one of the lowest points in his career but has worked long and hard since then. obviously in many different roles. and today we are remembering his life and career as we're hearing from the family this morning that he has passed due to complications from covid-19. >> 6. oh, one is the time right now. and thanks for joining us on this monday morning. weather is going to

6:03 am
mountains including a ride along highway 17 between san jose out towards santa cruz. this is especially true in los gatos right now where you're in the midst of some light rainfall currently we saw mountain view and sunnyvale in the midst of some light showers about 20 minutes ago. those areas have since cleared out now, as for current temperatures right now we're sitting in the 40's and 50's for most of the region. light jackets coming in handy today, even into the afternoon with the sunshine that we do have temperatures still remaining cool enough that you'll want to stay nice and warm santa rosa, you were in the 30's moments ago. now you're back up to 40 degrees right now. so we do have a hot spot for you this morning. this is in burlingame. >> 82 or also el camino real northbound and southbound between broadway and carmelita avenue. all lanes. there are currently closed, but again to 80 or one o one r really good alternate for you if you are traveling along this area heading into the city looks like the meteor lights on a
6:04 am
little under 14 minutes for your drive time there to make it into the city. san mateo bridge heading across towards the peninsula. little under 14 minutes for your drive time there and checking on conditions along the richmond. sandra fell bridge a little under 9 darya james, back to you. thanks a lot. and let's get back to the big story which is as we're talking about the weather. it started yesterday with a rainstorm and. >> now we've got power outages. yes, and that's what's really affecting primarily the east bay as we wake up this morning kron 4. sarah stinson live for us there with the latest on the outages that we're seeing. sarah, good morning. >> yeah. it's extremely dark out here in crockett and live here on pomona street where you can see cars rolling through this intersection here. you need to stop when those street lights are out south like it's a stop sign and see that person didn't rolled right through you really got to take it slow out there. look for any hazards in the road. and then as a as you just saw need to stop at where the street lights were and where they should be turned back on soon. hopefully. but
6:05 am
what we're seeing on the pga web site for this outage is that areas like rocket could see the power out from now until 8 o'clock tonight. so be aware as you head out the door. let's take a look at the pga me power outage map. you can see there's a total of 21,000 customers without power. the green circles are smaller outages in the orange and yellow are the bigger outages. most customers are in the east bay and that's about 11,700 plus customers without power right now and take a look at video of a power pole sparking in san francisco's mission district says kind of the problem that we're hearing about across the bay area and that is these power lines either being damaged or sparking. they're seeing arching as well. so you can be pretty dangerous. so keep your eyes out for that down on the peninsula. there's nearly 8,000 people or customers, rather without power and the power's out due to this rain that we saw yesterday afternoon in went into the night and even into this morning, as john was saying,
6:06 am
so it's cause some issues for pg e's power poles. >> and so they're out there with their crews working to fix the problem. the vix, those damaged power poles that were seen across the bay area. so this morning said heading out the door, make sure you take it slow not see any rain out here in the east bay. >> we're on that anymore. but definitely seeing, you know, of those either the flashing traffic lights or no traffic lights. so be extra cautious will keep an eye on this power outage for you and let you know we have here in the updates. when you go to the pg e website. it shows it could be out until 00:00pm tonight. live in crockett. sarah stinson, back to you. >> thank you, sarah. and 6. '06. another big story happening today with parents and students walk out of sorts. schools to protest covid-19 vaccine mandates for kids. yeah. these walkouts there across the state and there are people who. >> want to make their opinion about vaccines known kron four's will tran is live in santa rosa with the latest.
6:07 am
well. >> darya james, i'm in front of the office of education in sonoma county where we expect parents to show up in a couple of hours from now. they want to send a message to governor gavin newsome believing he did not hear. there are concerns when he said that he wanted kids next fall between 7th and 12th grades to be fully vaccinated and then with the ultimate goal of having kids between 4.11 years old to also be vaccinated because he says the science proves that vaccinations are safe, not just for the kids but for the entire community. and that's why he is doing this. he does acknowledge that he did plan for a lot of push back from parents who say, you know, it's ok for maybe them to get vaccinated. but now you're talking about my child and that may be going too far. that might be an overreach by the government. >> to make them have their kids become vaccinated. the
6:08 am
bottom line is at this particular point. it is still being looked at by the fda. so governor gavin newsom is still watching and see how that plays out. but it looks like eventually. >> according to him if he gets his way, the kids will be vaccinated before they enter the schools at least by next fall. all kids again between 7th and 12th grades. we've got a chance to talk to some parents and they're using the my body, my choice, especially when it comes to their kids. >> the parents make the choices for medical freedom for their trip for children. and then we have body autonomy. it's my body. my choice. and so we just hope that, you know, the school districts here, the parent- and know that there is an overwhelming amount of parents that are not happy with this mandate. >> now, i can tell you, governor gavin newsome. he's not 100% rock solid about is explaining that. yes, he does understand that there could be
6:09 am
some health exceptions and some religious exemptions. but other than that, he wants to be have the kids fully vaccinated now, i can tell you it's not necessarily james and darya a walkout. there are some parents that we heard throughout the state. that plan just to keep their kids at at home and not be on the lines and that in of itself could hurt the school district as well because when united school, that means that you're not counted as being there. and that means as far as government funding. that's why they take attendance because they didn't know how much money that the school districts will get when it comes to the government. so there are many ways that they're doing this. but we do expect the parents to start being here at around. maybe 90 minutes from now. and of course we will have reaction. >> back to you. all right. thanks a lot. we'll check back with you later. will. >> well, 6. '09, is the time. and today the city of berkeley and the berkeley unified school district are going to open a covid vaccine clinic. >> and this is for anybody over the age of 12. it starts
