degrees alameda at 53. now looking ahead towards the afternoon. daytime highs will be in the 60's mild and sunny sounds pretty familiar. we've been there pretty much all week and we're going to stay that way. through the weekend. found thanks for that. right. so unfortunately we do have a fatality out there. this is. >> northbound want to one just south on street in san francisco. and so at one point all the lanes are blocked in the northbound side and they were diverting traffic off at cesar chavez. it looks like they were able to open up one lane. they're on the northbound side. so the other lanes are still blocked and they're still trying to candle that incident there. so again, we're going to keep a close eye on that. remember northbound one. oh, one, just south of vermont street traveling from the east bay into the see no major delays and even see any slow spots along other highways and bridges. san mateo bridge in across towards the peninsula a little under 15 minutes. we'll have more on your traffic and
weather coming up for now, let's talk about the total the damages to our california giant sequoia trees from the recent wildfires that stall being calculated. all as efforts are underway to try and say the giant trees from the next wildfire but is enough being done. chip yost has that story. >> when a fire stab wishes self and lowered read we can and we knew we had a problem from his perch on an observation deck above the red wood canyon grow. the largest grove of giant sequoias in the world. sequoia and kings canyon national parks fire management officer john ziegler notes. some of the giant trees below were killed in the camp. he complex fire. but he also knows another truth, although we don't. >> we really don't like destructive you know, sometimes there's a silver lining. the silver lining in this case is that some of this
land was in desperate need of a prescribed burn that is a fire intentionally set by firefighters to get rid of smaller trees and brush buildup. >> that when left unchecked can turn a small or moderate fire into one big enough to burn swathes of giant sequoias, something that just 10 years ago was unheard of the good news in the knp complex fire. is that part of it went through just like a smaller prescribed burn would have this part of the fire actually treated about 70%. >> of the unit. we have a plan to burn anyway. all the stumps. you can see where they cut. this is the ones we're telling you guys about another part of protecting sequoias involves mechanical been more physically cutting in moving some of the trees in clearing brush around them. something that seemed to help in the nearby windy fire right now we're on the trail of a 100 giants. and as you can see, there is destruction all
around. >> from the windy fire. but the fire was not as devastating here as elsewhere. just look at this tree right here. yes, there is black on the bottom. but as you look up, there's still a lot of green on the branch is one reason fire officials say this part of the park did a lot better than others is because of all the prep work that was done ahead of time unfortunately for the rest of the forest decades of fire suppression. >> have left a lot more work to be done. >> for mixed conifer overall. our fire ecologists has told me we need to burn 30,000 acres a year. we burn 1000 in a good year and a prescribed fire. last year. the state of california and the u.s. forest service signed an agreement in which each made commitments to increase a chopper, a shuns and take other actions. >> to address as they put it, the overly dense ai ing forests that dominate the landscape today. we need to
get on that. we need to increase the pace and skill. >> wildfires burn fast. they don't wait for us to fill out a million forms. and you know, so we need to increase the pace and scale of our treatments on the western slopes of california sierra nevada mountain range. i'm chip yost. >> well, and other national news ahmaud arbery's mother speaking out just days after the 3 men shot and killed her son were convicted. she says she's thankful justice was served wanda cooper-jones gather with family and friends in georgia. she says while she's thankful for that verdict. the murder convictions are not going to bring that person cooper jones also says the loss of her son leaves a huge hole in her family. not only does she lose a son but her children lost a sibling and our grandchildren lost an uncle. >> thank hope. it passes it. the first thanksgiving, they will happen. saying that we haleigh and justice for but again, i mean, heart still having that thanksgiving my

says it's ready for the surge this holiday season after taking steps to prevent the problems that experience last year. the postal service expects 25 billion letters cards packages to pass through its system from now through new year's day covid created unprecedented issues for the postal service last year. the lead to major delivery delays. >> not only covid which created on increased online ordering. and it also created employee impacts with the employee availability. we competitors who. have the luxury of saying no, taking more and center through the post office. instead, we don't do that. we're here for you, whatever you give us. we're going to we're going to deliver when got home. >> in fact, the postal service's says that it is possible it is over repair. that's because low product inventories port distributions as supply chain issues are creating uncertainty and uncertainty that holiday

who just happens to be the heir to the gucci fortune who wants nothing to do with his family's business a series of events and his very aggressive new girlfriend soon to be wife has other ideas. and here is where all the fun and tragedy began the plot thickens as more of the gucci's are introduced each with their own agendas and wild personalities. thanks to a fantastic supporting cast of al pacino's jared leto, some hiking. jeremy irons it's and sometimes messy and reminded me of watching the antics of britain's royal family or america's super rich. the story is a little long at just over 2 and a half hours. but it's interesting. stylish beautifully performed by dean's list. b plus only in for the family. there's the latest from the disney animation factory and condo. it's a magical story of a family that possess magical powers all except young mirabal believes her family's powers are waning. so she goes on a quest to find them in
condo is uplifting fun and full of great messages. and even though it mostly doesn't break any new ground it does feature 8 original songs from hamilton creator lin-manuel miranda that adds to the positive vibes. it's a dean's list. b plus, only in theaters. and that screen is the origin story of the resident evil franchise in resident evil. welcome to raccoon city. a once thriving city is abandoned by its main employer. a giant pharmaceutical company when zombie evil is unleashed from below the surface. hope you have a great holiday weekend in chicago. i'm dean richards. >> all right. a lot of great movies to see will be right back after the break.
