10:11 pm

10:13 pm
quake struck just before noon today. the epicenter was on saint norbert and conway drives in danville in the quake was followed by more than a dozen aftershocks. one student was recording himself practicing a speech when the quake hit there goes the camera went that way. we talk to other people who live in the area. they were telling us that they were a little shaken up by it all. sure. very short lived. but the rattle things in the house felt like a godzilla just stepped in. so our living he certainly the biggest earthquake can happen at any time. at some point it will. >> and that's actually part of what makes the earthquakes frightening. if we knew when they were coming. we be less scared of thought. >> for those who do not have emergency to go bags ready. this might be a wake-up call. you can always stay connected with the latest details. whenever a quake strikes. the bay area scan this qr code. it will take you straight to our website where you can find information on things such as building your emergency kit

10:15 pm
tomorrow planning a big change in weather grab a jacket. if you're headed out to work, we'll be about 10 degrees cooler around a good part of the bay area. so numbers not getting close to 70 degrees tomorrow afternoon like they did today. i think many places are struggling to get out the 50's by tomorrow afternoon. so here comes a frontal system again, it's got to run into this ridge of high pressure. and so, yeah, a lot of the energy is going to be trapped in the north and it's going fall apart as it comes through. that's not a good scenario for a lot of rainfall. so it's not going to be like one of those big events like we had early on in the season, but a chance of some showers late tomorrow afternoon rolling into the bay area and then it looks like the whole system begins to sag south overnight as we head in toward early on a friday morning as well. you see right here, clouds gathering throughout the night tonight. it's tomorrow morning. but staying dry for the commute. then in the afternoon, some pop-up showers showing up in the north. they see there just after 5 o'clock in the afternoon and then it takes to overnight hours. so we see that rain begin to sag further south across the rest, the bay area. so we'll keep our eyes on that. 42. and we've got some more showers in the forecast. but we're not talking about rain. we'll

10:17 pm
moderna asking the fda for emergency use authorization for its covid booster. that's for all adults right now. it's been authorized only for people 65 and older people with certain health conditions or long-term care facilities and people of in high-risk jobs, high risk of exposure. the move by moderna comes as the fda is expected to authorize pfizer's booster for all adults as early as tomorrow. >> many parents are rushing to try to get their children between the ages of 5.11 vaccinated against covid and like have to get 2 doses. 3 weeks apart. >> but there is one bay area. doctor advising parents not to blindly follow the cdc guidance in our grant lotus is here in the studio to explain. >> catherine and ken, she's certainly clear she wants everybody to get vaccinated. kids but how exactly you get the second dose she thinks is
10:18 pm
up for debate and something that parents should be talking with there pediatricians about and she suggest to people that she is advising and we're talking of the ucsf infectious disease expert doctor monica gandhi has been all over bay area media for a year and a half now advising folks on how to get through this. she says it is better to wait longer. then the cdc's recommendation of 3 weeks before you get your little one that second dose of the pfizer vaccine, which again, remembers a 3rd of the amount per dose of what adults get she told us tonight on kron 4 news at 5. she's telling parents that she is advising to wait 6 up to 8 weeks to get the second dose. >> if you get 3 weeks between doses. there's 82% effectiveness for the pfizer. 92% effective way 8 weeks and you want affect us. so i personally, if i sing and waiting for my own child for set 6 to 8 weeks between doses.
10:19 pm
>> she has an 11 year-old in that age range and she cited recent studies in canada and israel to support her contention, adding that one of the study suggested that the risk of myocarditis the and large heart that is rare but can happen. the risk more. if you wait less time. so if you do extend the second dose longer she believes and she cites this data that the risk is less now she does. want to tell everybody that especially really school districts in the governor. i suppose that it's important that parents have something to motivate them in some cases to get their children vaccinated to be able, you know, to then remove their masks in classrooms. so what is the metric to get there. she believes the more parents will get their kids vaccinated so that they can enjoy the freedom and the socialization, the maturation that comes with mask removal. so she doesn't think that a
10:20 pm
certain percentage of students per school. upper class need to be vaccinated before the masks come off rather ceased suggest that 12 weeks after that age group is eligible mo be vaccinated. the masks can come off and parents can choose what they want to do. they've had ample time. she says at that point to get their kids vaccinated. she's also urging parents to, you know, catch up and a lot of cases on what used to be routine maintenance. you know, seeing the pediatrician a lot of folks neglected that during the pandemic for good reason because they didn't want to take the covid risk associated with going to that public space. but you know, there there's a study that is showing that a lot of measles vaccines, for instance, haven't been given in the past year and a half. so she wants people to do that. she also says, look, if you want to keep your child with a mask on, you know, school is going certainly around here is going to forbid you from doing that. so an interesting perspective, not one that follows the cdc's advice. but she does note
10:21 pm
that, you know, the cdc just has this data from pfizer, right. and they wait 3 weeks and that's all that you have to go on. so that is why the recommendation is what it is. and your 2 children just got vaccinated yesterday right. and a lot of kids are actually enthusiastic about it. >> they did and they were and they immediately wanted to know when they can take their masks off. now. we about the second dose. and that was one of the reasons we had doctor gandhi on today because it's a real and doctor gundy reminded people that it's a parent's decision went to do the second dose. if they're going to vaccinate their kids. it's really up to the parents. you can look at this guidance and and follow it if you like. but the cdc and the fda have not always been at the forefront of data and sometimes in this pandemic is taking them longer to to get with it. i'm not saying doctor gundy is right with the 6 to 8 week rebut there is some data from israel and canada. now to back interesting to hear that different point of view that thank you. grant.
10:22 pm
>> air travel this holiday season. it is expected to resemble prepandemic levels at oakland airport. for example, roughly 170,000 passengers are expected next weekend. if so, that would be twice as many as last year. analysts say consumer confidence in covid safety protocols is a sense sparring. more people to book flights. there is still a federal mask mandate in effect at all us airports. >> millions of people also be traveling by road. this holiday season even though the cost of gasoline is climbing to record highs according to aaa, the national average of a gallon of regular gas is $3.41. that's a lot less than it is here in california. it's almost $4.70. that is a new record in the bay area. the average cost. of course, even higher for dollars. $0.83 a gallon on average in fact, the cost of gas is getting so

10:24 pm
provided them with a poor quality copy of drone video showing rittenhouse shooting and killing one of his victims. the judge did not rule on that motion. but did criticize the news media. >> i will tell you this. i'm going to think long and hard live television. the trial again next time i don't know. i always been a firm believer in because i think that people should be able to see what's going on. team. what's being done really quite frightening. >> the judge described media coverage of the trial as irresponsible and did not like some of the news stories about his decisions, including his ruling that the men rittenhouse shot could not be called victims. >> jacob chansley also known as the qanon shamann was sentenced today to 41 months in prison for his role in the u.s. capitol riot on january 6th chansley storms. the building with his face painted while wearing a fur helmet and horns. he pleaded guilty in
