tv KRON 4 News at 5am KRON November 26, 2021 5:00am-6:01am PST
>> from the area's local news station. you're watching the kron 00:00am morning far. >> good morning, everybody. thanks for joining us. on a friday the day after thanksgiving. it's 05:00am i'm james fletcher. and i'm reyna harvey in for daryn fulsome. and we made it to the week. we did. and now we've got the shopping weekend ahead for many is part of their thanksgiving tradition. it looks like the weather's going to be nice for it is good. john has been telling me all morning. a lot of sunshine on the way. so good to get more
sunshine means more weather to be getting out there for not a lot of changes in today's forecast. so what i'm about to say you could heard yesterday, the day before that or day before that too, because we're back to the 60's and back to the sunshine. your view outside this morning at half moon bay is looking nice and clear. another fog free morning and we are looking at just a couple of passing clouds overhead. they're not going to last for long. lots of afternoon sunshine is just around the corner. as for current temperatures, little more mild than we were yesterday. and you can actually think some of that cloud cover for that helping lose some of that heat loss during our overnight hours when it's not quite as crystal clear oftentimes we're a little bit more mild up head. a little bit of 45 oakland at 50 san francisco. pretty comfortable 54 right now. reyna. tom, thank you for that. so unfortunately we had an early-morning fatality. this is in san francisco. >> northbound one. oh, one just south of vermont street and so on the northbound side, at one point, all the lanes
are blocked. they've opened at least one lane there and they are diverting traffic off at cesar chavez. so again, northbound 1, 1, just south of vermont street. we also have a car fire. this is in the south bay so that san jose not a vehicle fire rather a tree that's reported on fire. so a lot of that smoke is blowing over on the lanes. southbound 8.80,ojust south of montague expressway. >> if you're heading from the east bay into the city. a little under 2 minutes for your drive time there. the san mateo bridge heading across towards the peninsula a little under 13 as you're traveling out of richmond richmond center fell come you nice and light for us in a little under 9 minutes. and the golden gate bridge about 20 traveling from the north bay into the city. >> all right. let's get to our top story. as i mentioned a moment ago, shopping is something that thousands of people are going to be doing this weekend as part of their thanksgiving weekend tradition stores bracing for it all across the bay area. exactly. a lot of people probably good that you're probably getting but now. businesses are
opening a little early across the bay area. but this year prices could be a little higher. yeah. that'll be something we're all dealing with kron 4 sarah stinson live at the outlet mall in livermore to talk more about that. good morning, sarah. >> yeah, they just opened up the barricades here at the san francisco premium outlet mall and they close it up because they don't want people parking and then getting in line all night. that's not what they want here and that so they just opened up the floodgates. people are driving in right now. you can see behind me there and then parking. and i think the lines are starting to form inside. so that will be something we'll have to go. check out. and but in the meantime, it's funny, black friday. you're trying to get all the deals. but unfortunately looks like shoppers are expected to pay 5 to 17% more. this year on average for toys clothing appliances. tv's. and that's because of the delay in deliveries in the inflation goal continuing to climb
shortages of shipping containers and truckers have made the delay of deliveries and had the inflation go up the combination of the 2 is making your prices this year. a black friday in just really buying for the holidays that much more expensive, especially when you compare it to last year. tv's apparently will see the highest price hike on average up to 17% from a year ago. so that is unfortunate because usually you can get such good tv deals. the pandemic further diminishing the importance of black friday. but we'll have to see what the turnout is today at places like best buy and this outlet malls places people have historically lined up and gotten extremely good deals. but today hope see if people are getting a deal at all. so keep you up to them to be driving all around. checking in with shoppers seeing what deals are scooping up, if any at all. and if i find any good deals this
morning. i will let you know. all you have to do is watch from the comfort of your own home. back to you in the yeah, absolutely. thank you, sarah. >> this morning as shopping malls are preparing for you to visit them. they're also preparing. unfortunately. >> for the possibility of smash-and-grab robberies. we've seen them break out across the bay area. yeah, exactly. these of targeted everything from. >> designer stores to mom and pop shops to even cannabis dispensaries because black friday typically means long lines and hordes of people rushing into stores. but the smash and grabs are changing people's holiday plans are. we've got kron four's. rob nesbitt with the story. >> and as i was going back, i heard glass being broken. >> what was supposed to be a nice day at crissy field wednesday for stephen w turned into witnessing the smash and grab parked car. it saw him a distinctly take 2 bags of luggage out of the back of the smashed up vehicle. >> increase of smash and grabs outside cars and inside stores makes him question just how busy black friday will be.
>> but area mayors including concord mayor tim mcgallian say that shopping safety should not be a concern. i mean, there's a lot of eyes on. >> on our shopping district right now and they usually are during the holidays anyway. so we just encourage people still coming out. please patronize our business as a sense of security that people seem to be trusting with an increase in crime. you know, deter you from going out to do your shopping. sara lee kaling says that she always has to be aware of her surroundings in san francisco. >> unsettled by the videos of smash and grabs at retail stores during business hours don't think targeting people perhaps. >> guess that would be a scary situation to be in the store when it happens. locals. i spoke to one thanksgiving feel safe knowing where to go and where to avoid. it's tourists. they worry about embarrassed by what has become an unsettling norm and it was something like this happens the middle of day. it's even more shocking. some people stop yesterday night. is this normal. i guess this is this is what we do. most of the people i spoke to say that
they plan on avoiding shopping in stores altogether, not just on black friday. >> choosing to do their holiday shopping online in san francisco. rob nesbitt kron 4 news. >> and if you're looking for something today, that doesn't involve shopping. the east bay regional park district is hosting what they call green friday free park day. all district fees are going to be way for park entrances and activities including parking. so that's a big deal. >> well, the gunman is still on the loose now after a private security guard who was on assignment for us here at kron. 4 was shot in oakland wednesday. the reward for information leading to arrest has gone up now to $25,000. police say the incident was an attempted armed robbery to try and steal a news camera equipment of the shooting happened at the intersection of 14th and harrison right near the 12 street bart station. what you're looking at here is video from the citizens app from somebody above shooting down towards the scene. the guard is now recovering at the hospital. officers later found an additional victim involved in this berkeley man who was also
transported to highland hospital for treatment. that man was hit by a by bullet shrapnel. basically he has since been released from the hospital. now our reporter who was on the scene as well was not physically hurt. but again, our thoughts are with the guard that still recovering. and again, that reward for information leading to the person behind the shooting has now gone up to $25,000. >> well, happening today. the vta will be hosting a virtual vigil to mark 6 months since 9 co-workers were killed there in the deadliest mass shooting we've seen in the bay area's history. it's going to start at 10:00am over zoom. and then again at 04:00pm there's going to be virtual candle lighting ceremony. everyone is welcome to join. we've also shared that to link on our web site over at kron 4 dot com. >> and happening right now, chp is out in full force this weekend looking for dangerous drivers were taking a live look right now at the bay bridge toll plaza agency kicked off its holiday maximum
enforcement period wednesday all available chp officers are going to be on patrol until sunday at midnight. the monitoring for seat belt violations. speeding distracted driving and signs of duis. >> well, the chp also says the 2 thanksgiving day crashes have left at least 2 people dead and several others injured. the first happened around 3 o'clock yesterday morning just north of ralston avenue in belmont. police say was a green honda. the drifted into the northbound lanes on highway one. oh, one. so it's going in the wrong direction with its lights off when the accident occurred. the car was hit head on 2 of the cars were struck as well. the driver of the green honda was taken to hospital where she later died. another person was killed in a crash around 6 o'clock yesterday morning just south of brentwood. according to the chp, was a truck that was headed north and a car traveling south on vasco road when one of them crossed over into the un com. an incoming traffic. oncoming traffic, i should say, right near walton
boulevard. the driver of the car died at the scene. the driver of the truck was taken to the hospital with major injuries. both crashes are still under investigation. and at this point it's not clear if drugs or alcohol were a factor. we'll take a break. 5 o 9 is the time. and still ahead on the kron 00:00am morning news, a new covid-19 variant is raising concerns now around the world this morning. we'll have details on that coming up in a minute. >> plus, what's being done to protect the giant sequoias from wildfires will take another look at some new efforts underway to keep them safe. >> and we do have some clear skies ahead of us yet again. it looks fairly quiet at sfo right now. but you know, probably not really the case. it is good day for travel for shopping whatever you want to do outside with highs back in the upper 60's to low 70's. your forecast is ahead.

then saving plans just got that day. all right. we've got john. hopefully the winds here are nothing compared to what they're dealing with in southern california where he's been the big problem spot. the santa ana winds have been brutal for much of areas surrounding l a they also haven't seen as much rainfall as us this season. so their fire danger is just naturally going to be a little bit higher. bay area is calmer comparatively. >> we're also just a lot more lush now because we've seen rainfall lately, meaning that we don't have that same fire danger and things are a lot calmer for us. so at least we've got that going for us as we look at a very dry and to the month golden gate bridge. crystal clear this morning. we're seeing some cloud cover up above us. but certainly no fog. if anything, that cloud cover is just help to make tonight a more mild evening or least last night into the early morning. that's great. if you're doing some really early black friday shopping. it is cool, but it is dry and it will be sunny all this bodes well, for anything you have going on outside today starts with some partly cloudy
skies. we will be looking at sunshine midday cloud cover increases just before sunset. then tomorrow clears right back out with some even warmer temperatures than what we're going to see today, sunday keeps those warmer temperatures going with highs well into the 70's for much of the bay area tomorrow. most of us will be in the 60's mission and financial districts at 66 degrees in areas like burlingame in south san francisco at 67 just below 70 in san carlos redwood city in woodside each at 68 and only one 70 on the map today. that's for you in campbell, in the south bay right at 70 degrees. fremont hayward in the upper 60's oakland. you'll be a nice 67 today. areas like filet hole and as well as pittsburgh fairfield and vacaville for that matter at 65 degrees each. here's a look ahead at our next 7 days. so tomorrow and sunday will be on the warmer side, at least compared to today. some low to mid 70's for your highs. we will level out in those low 70's well into the start of
next month, which kicks off next wednesday that is december first only 22 1 to leave that right now. oh, my goodness. it will, don, we're keeping a close eye on the roadways. we do have a. >> unfortunately, an early-morning fatality. northbound want to one just south of vermont street here in san francisco and so on the northbound side, all lanes were blocked. but we know now that they have at least opened up a lane. and so traffic can get through just a little slower. they're also diverting traffic off to cesar chavez. it's unknown how long this is going to be blocking the roads they're also in the south a southbound just south of montague expressway. looks like the trees on fire and smoke is blowing across the highways here. you may see some slowing in delays because of that. >> if you're heading from the east bay, though, into the city. no major delays at all under 10 minutes for drive time there. the san mateo bridge in across towards the peninsula. little 115 richmond center fell as you're traveling out of richmond. a little under 9 minutes and the golden gate bridge. it will be
about 20 minutes for you to make your way from the north bay traveling to the tolls will have more weather and traffic coming up for now, let's get back to the news, ok, 5.19 the total assessment of the damage to california's giant sequoia trees from recent wildfires. >> it's still being calculated and now efforts are also underway to try and save these giant trees from the next wildfire. yeah, but is enough being done to yost takes a look at that for us. >> 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, smmething 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 thinning physically cutting 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 and 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 ailing

gift cards. nothing is free, especially when they ask for credit card info number 6 is temporary holiday jobs. they ask you for money for that promise. big pay for a small amount of work. they're not legit. look-alike websites can be tricky because it's easy to type a wrong key. so make sure the site is legit before entering your personal information and fake charities offered to donate a portion of their profits to a good cause. but then don't number 9 on the list is fake shipping scams. their popular over the holidays. they send out e-mails with links ask you for your personal information. scammers are creating fake pop-up holiday virtual events and then charging admission to try to steal your credit card number. then there's top holiday wish list items being sold at ridiculously low rates. those are probably not legit. and last but not least on the list. there's puppy scams before you buy that four-legged friend make sure you see the puppy in person since they're usually are no refunds and the key here is to remember the old adage. it seems like it's too good to be
true, it probably is. >> well back here in the bay area. dozens of local nonprofits have worked hard this thanksgiving to make sure that every family had a warm meal at the table to enjoy. but the redwood city there will there with care is doing much more than just that exactly. and provide support to low income families with children who are critically ill kron four's. >> taylor is explains how it's helping families in the bay area. every single day. >> as we give thanks on thursday. many others are also giving back specifically for thanksgiving. we're making sure. >> that families have a warm meal on the table and we're also making sure they have beautiful celebratory settings as executive director sarah alexander explains. >> a bay area nonprofit there with care doesn't just assist families for the holidays, but it'sesomething they do on a daily basis throughout the year. we are providing direct support to families that have a sick child at the hospital
