8:00 am
have a some decent conditions lee for the next john mother nature is giving us what we need and when we needed to because those showers did arrive a little bit later yesterday. hopefully by that point, you are all settled and able listen to the rainfall outside. >> from the comfort of your warm home and it has cleared out by the time we're leaving for work this morning. so conditions out there are actually pretty favorable for the morning jog or just to be venturing outside to get the day started your view outside of san francisco is nice and perfectly clear at this point. there's definitely a few spots of clouds and just a couple of sprinkles lingering above san jose up in the diablo is east of the south bay. aside from that. we've really calm down now and are in for a really sunny but cool rest of the day. 40's 50's for most of our current temperatures of blaring exception being san jose at only 37 degrees right now. so layer up this morning. keep a couple of those layers on hand into are cool afternoon reyna john, thank you for that. still have a couple hot spots out there this morning. we've been
8:01 am
tracking. >> a lot of them. so this one is in fairfield, southbound, 6.80, north of march euros. so that's traveling down one lane. they're currently close. so you can still get through that. we're seeing delays so 80's just adjacent to that could go ahead and take that as opposed to being stuck in that traffic down a los gatos northbound 17 south of south santa cruz avenue. we have another traffic collision there. one lane blocked and we are seeing delays through about lexington hills area a little under 30 minutes. it looks like we have a traffic hazard on the bay bridge. not an accident, though. but we are seeing an uptick and drive times as you're heading to that fremont street exit. and in the south bay, we have some delays from the earlier accident. all lanes are open northbound 87 at one. oh one. daryn. james, back to you. thank you, brandon. >> so the breaking news this morning former secretary of state colin powell has died at the age of 84 from complications, from covid-19, a 4 star general and the first black secretary of state rose through the ranks. >> and ended up on both sides
8:02 am
of the aisle at times. you can see him here with hillary clinton. madeleine albright and he served under george in their cabinets as well. and so well respected. by republicans and democrats alike and just devoted his life to service his family is thank you and that they will miss him so much. and thank you for your condolences and condolences are pouring in all around this country to say thank you. rest in peace. colin powell, age of 84. >> also this morning, happening right now we have thousands of people across the bay area. as you can see here without power because of the rain storm that came through last night. cropper sarah stinson is live right now with the details. good morning, sarah. >> yeah, we're still trying to get ahold of pg e's. they can tell us any update as to when power is going to turn on, especially now as we head into the later part of the morning when people are actually starting to wake up and unfortunately starting their monday without power live here
8:03 am
in crockett on kimono street. we can see a gas station completely out of commission because no power and then you can see this intersection, an example of many intersections across the bay area right now where the traffic lights are completely out and that means you have to stop like it's a four-way stop sign and safely get through that intersection. some people are doing it. some people are not. >> and this is what you're going to see because there's a huge power outage across the bay area 21,000 nearly 21,000 people without customers. now let's take a look at the pg outage maps. you can see all the customers who are without power. you can see the green is the smaller outages in orange and yellow are the bigger outages. most of the customers affected our customers who live in the east bay. 11,700 plus customers waking up this monday morning without any power. not fun. now let's take a look at why we're dealing with this month because of the rain you may
8:04 am
have seen it may have had to walk out in the yesterday afternoon. it kept raining in some areas throughout the night and even into this morning and that rain caused some damage to pg e power lines and pg e power transformers calling some of them to spark. there's video of one in the mission district where it was sparking. you can see that's not an isolated case that was happening at places all over the bay area and then that rain just damage a lot of their equipment. so causing the outage. so now they're working on fixing the problem, getting that power back up and running so people can go about their day. but. >> if you look on the pga out its website. we're not seeing very much look so far what it would say, at least for where i'm at right now in the crockett area that powers not going to be stored until 8 o'clock tonight. the sky just drove by me here at crockett. he yelled, hey, did you hear the school had to shut down today because the power is the man died, not surprised because without power. are
8:05 am
they really going to function. so much to drive to the school waiting to get a call back from p g me. so a lot we hope to learn before my neck. >> all right. to the power, go out for sarah. i i don't think it's weather related, though. yeah. we'll reconnect. it's are here in a bit. but obviously she's following that story, the thousands without power now they're in crockett after yesterday's storms again, you know, at least it's not dark out and then slight. so you go, we will be checking in with sarah later on this morning. right now we want to check in with kron four's will tran because today there are some parents and students that are walking out to protest covid vaccine mandates for kids. yeah, they don't want them for their students. least not mandated. they want that choice for themselves. kron four's will tran in santa rosa. >> with the story. well. >> it might be more of a sick out. then walk out because they said that they would be here sometime this morning. so far we don't see anybody showing up at district headquarters. but they're
8:06 am
here. if they do show up. but really they trying to send a message to sacramento more specifically. governor gavin newsome saying as you mention, james, they would like that choice. they don't want to be told to have their kids vaccinated the way it is right now. governor gavin newsome alike kids between 7th and 12th graders to be fully vaccinated by next fall and with the continuing research, if it gets government approval, he would like to see kids between 4.11 years old. also vaccinated. he says the science is there that he wants the schools to be safe. the kids to be safe and society to be safe. but many people believe that they are not safe from governor gavin newsom and what they claim is his overreach. >> if this mandate goes through. it will be devastating to our school system this mandate, especially in kids is a complete government overreach and that governor newsom is playing politics with our children.
8:07 am
>> and that person that you just heard from is not just a parent, but he's also a biology teacher who's against backed vaccine mandates. they're also talking many parents are talking about possibly even moving out of california altogether. so the kids don't have to get the shot. they're also considering homeschooling. we are here. we see district employees show up. but so far no parent or child is showing up. and again, it's not just santa rosa. it's across the state. and if they're not here and they're protesting. there's a good chance james and area. they are protesting from home as a sickout because if they don't show up that also hurts the district financially back to you. >> thank you. well, meantime, if you want your kid to get a shot they can because happening tomorrow, the city of berkeley and the berkeley unified school district are opening a covid vaccine clinic for anyone over the age of 12 tomorrow. the clinic is a berkeley high from 11:00am to
8:08 am
06:00pm and then wednesday at the berkeley technology academy. there will be a clinic students under the age of 18 have to have a signed parental consent form. >> breaking news from overnight we have 2 people dead after a crash on highway 2.37 in santa clara. that happened about 1045 last night between the junctions of lawrence expressway and great america parkway. you can see where the icon here is on the map. 5 cars were involved. the victims were found in separate cars. the people in the other 3 cars suffered only minor injuries. 2 lanes had to be shut down for a couple of hours while they dealt with the scene. but it's all been reopened this morning. also in the south bay, 18 people without a home. now after 2 separate fires broke out in san jose. the first one was at an apartment complex in the area of north 5th street in east saint john street san jose fire department tweeted out these pictures from the scene. 8 people were displaced in that fire. fortunately none of them were hurt. a few hours later, though, firefighters were called to a house fire on south 13th and east santa
8:09 am
clara streets. nobody hurt in this one either. but 10 people were displaced. you can see the response here in these photos, both fires are under investigation this morning. >> happening now. cal fire is conducting a prescribed burn in sonoma county. it started this morning just about an hour ago, west of magic mountain road and south of kid creek the fire crews are going to burn a total of 40 acres. and as the should be done by 9 o'clock tonight. so if you're in the area and you see smoke. the smoke should be visible in large part a sonoma county. so don't be alarmed. then again, a controlled burn that got out of control in santa cruz county is burning and it's a 140 acres so far. but it is 60% contained. so they're making some progress on the u.s. try to fire, which is near watsonville it jumped containment lines on friday and cal fire says even though this fire is still threatening structures and power lines. the evacuation orders were reduced from warnings down.
8:10 am
they were orders. they reduced to warnings over the weekend. and then there is the fireworks. we're covering in southern california. this is the one happening in santa barbara, this has been burning for about a week and the update is it's 78% contain. >> dallas. all fire started last monday it's burned nearly 27 square miles. and right now is threatening about 400 homes and other structures. >> well, we have new video out of pta showing the moments during an officer-involved shooting. so here's the video. this was on friday in a crowd for a viewer sent us this video as they were across the parking lot at the milpitas square shopping center me the camera towards where all of this was happening. an officer apparently tried to stop this car that they thought was stolen. the driver at that point opened fire on police officers fired back. that's when they hit the shooter who was then taken to the hospital and treated. that person is now under arrest. in the south bay woman accused of hosting

8:16 am
businesses say they're grateful for those efforts. >> i'm definitely thankful to have all the crews out here makes me feel really a lot better about they're still going to be a lot of obstacles like landslides and mudslides when the water does come in. >> and that's exactly what crews are working to prevent from happening, but living in this area over a says it's not something locals are prepare for, especially after something wildfire that comes through. >> you can expect there's going to be landslides just because of the way that it works and it's going to slough off everything into the road. so yeah, we're just kind of like not just the way and in the meantime, goes, it is asking tourists and residents alike to be patient. it's going to take a lot of precept. >> to put this out and it's going take a lot of manpower and continued work to to get to the end. >> so we appreciate all the hard work in preparing for the rain, you know and the and the bad things that rain can
8:17 am
bring. but fact is this. we can appreciate the rain to win race we need it undermines the we need it. we sure, you know, whole lot of it. it wants. a whole lot of it to come back from that and really the bulk of the week is going to be rainy and that's what we need to see is some extended around rain here and there. nothing like a crazy torrance and then dry against isis to spread it out right right. what's happened and i love this view of the diamond peak. this morning's great kind of makes me feel cold. even standing in front of but hey, you know, skiers love to see that as well. something that. >> all of us in the bay area are going to benefit some snow up in the sierra nevada. some rain here in the bay very, very welcome sight. just be mindful as you do head up in the higher elevations conditions are very slick up there this morning. still looking at snowfall hugging the slopes and some new snowfall still coming down at i 80 as well as highway 50 and as you saw in the story just a second ago because of the caldor fire and that very recent burn scar. there are
8:18 am
concerns of landslides debris flows, right. above 50 itself and that's why all those precautions are being taken, especially right around or burn scars. now here in the bay area conditions of really calm down. now. couple of sprinkles do remain above san jose in those higher elevations. aside from that. we're looking really dry the rest of the day today and tomorrow will be our sunny days with good conditions for venturing out getting errands done. maybe a little yard work tuesday night rainfall pushes back in and stays with especially into wednesday morning after that, some on and off showers into thursday rainfall likely to pick up friday. but our biggest rainmaker in this forecast doesn't come until sunday. that's looking like the one that could really be resulting in some widespread even moderate to heavy spots of rain, 50's 60's for your daytime highs in san francisco as well as along the coastline. pretty solidly 60's everywhere else in the paper league game at 65 foster city down to redwood city mid 60's for you today. south bay daytime highs 60's as well with san jose right at 63 not
