6:31 am
look outside this morning is looking a little bit on the cloudy side, not the brightest of mornings. we have some high passing clouds that are actually shielding us from some of the coldest temperatures that we felt so far this week. most of us are in the 40's to low 50's. now, yesterday was definitely a colder morning. but today we are factoring in that wind, which does make for a cool wind chill feel to have so just bundle up and you should be good to go for any sort of black friday shopping or errands that you have to run with the fam to stay after the holiday. bring a john. thank you for that. all right. let's start at the bay bridge as you're traveling from the east bay into the city this morning. >> meteor lights are off a little under 10 minutes for your drive time there. the 70 oh bridge and across towards the peninsula. you can make that commute in a little under 13, the richmond sandra fell bridge as you're traveling out of richmond traffic picks up still nice and light for us a little under 9 minutes and the golden gate bridge about 24 you heading from the north bay into the city. >> all right. it's 6.31. let's
6:32 am
get back to our top story this morning. the fact that today thousands of people are going to be, as we said, braving the elements the chilly air this morning try to grab those black friday sale. all in the name of getting a good deal businesses, opening early across the bay area. >> but this year prices could be a little higher. we've been talking about that call for sarah stinson is live for us out dublin. the best buy their where she's been seeing some early shoppers this morning. hey, sarah. >> hoyt is a chilly one, but people are up and atom to get those good deals here at best buy at the haas and a shopping center limit pan over. you can see the entrance here. there's been constant flow of people walking into best buy here in dublin at the haas and a shopping center. people getting those deals that they've been waiting for. probably a lot of people christmas shopping today. we get nervous about showing them on camera because they could be showing their christmas presents. now take a look at video. people walking out with items in hand. people shopping
6:33 am
on black friday. course they try and get good deals. but unfortunately. analysts say this year shoppers can expect to pay on average 5 to 17% more for toys clothing appliances and tv's compared to last year. this is due to shortages of shipping containers in truckers, which has helped delay deliveries at the same time, inflation continues to creep. tv's can see the highest price hike on average. but let's get to what i'm seeing it with deals here at best buy before you even leave the warmth of your home. let me tell you what we're seeing out here. the deals for best buy include a switch for 2.99 dicen back in $200 off. i'm seeing sony 4 k tvs for $300 off samsung for ktv is at 100 to $150 off. so james rain and there are some deals here at best buy. but apparently just not as good as last year. that's what analysts say that
6:34 am
if you are going out shopping today and you're a little bit nervous about crowds are looting or stuff like that. well, i can tell you from what i've seen out here. a lot of patrols, a lot of security both here at the haas in a shopping center. also at the san francisco premium outlets. i've seen a lot of police out patrolling the area. so they're all on high alert shopping centers malls because of the looting we have seen across the bay area. so at least they have patrols out there trying to deter any crimes from occurring today. hopefully people just get in, get those deals and get out because as i said, it is chilly out here for now, back to you. all right, sarah, thank you so much for the update there and everybody stay safe and stay warm exactly. of the holiday shopping season is here. we have to tell you that. ameri busy time. >> for not only shoppers but for scammers as well. that's what you got to keep aware of better business bureau fact out with its list of the top 12 scams, many of them targeting online shoppers.
6:35 am
>> according to the better business bureau, misleading social media ads are the most commonly reported scams counting for more than a 3rd of all reports last year. social media gift exchanges are used to steal your personal info holiday apps to ask your credit card in exchange for a direct line to santa. those should likely be avoided. then compromised account alerts are a year round scam delete the emails and confirm everything is ok directly, then there's free 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
6:36 am
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. >> words to remember for sure. alright also another developing story this morning. there's a new coach, a coronavirus variant that's been detected in south africa, scientists say it is kind of concerning because of its high number of mutations in rapid spread among young adults in the country's most populated areas. health officials there in south africa say that the variant is fueling dramatic rises in cases and it's also been detected in botswana and hong kong. and this morning the first case has now been detected in israel as well.
6:37 am
and new this morning, the european union says it's planning to stop air travel from southern africa in order to prevent the spread of this new variant not clear yet whether this new variant is any more or less effective against the vaccine. we'll wait and see the world health organization. is expected to meet today and that will determine whether they should designate this variant as one of concern. we'll see what they decide. meanwhile, researchers are working to determine if and when children and teens will need a coronavirus booster shot if at all. infectious disease expert doctor anthony fauci says it is less likely that kids will need an extra shot simply because their immune system is a little more robust than in adults. officials say that pediatric studies are now underway that more information should be available sometime next year. >> well, back here in the bay area. dozens of local nonprofits worked hard this thanksgiving. they were trying to make sure every family had a warm meal on their but the redwood city based nonprofit there with care is doing much more than that.
6:38 am
>> in fact, it provides support to low iniome families with children who are critically ill and kron four's taylor sack explains exactly how they're doing that. >> 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's something they do on a daily basis throughout the year. we are providing direct support to families that have a sick child at the hospital and most nearly all of the families that we're working with are in financial distress. >> so what we do is we make regular calls texts to families. many of whom are bedside with their child and we try to do what we can to make their life a little bit easier. most of what we do is providing and deliveries of purse trees, baby items, cleaning supplies and
6:39 am
