5:00 am
>> from the area's local news station. you're watching the kron 00:00am morning news far. >> i love to be late to work. but we're james. wright is here. we're all here reading show see what's going on outside as you step out. i just noticed it was freezing but know me john. yeah. how cold are we talking about this morning i know it's like it. would rather have the super cold winter weather rainy snowy stuff. well, i'm not, you know, old, yeah, we need the rain what we will take either of i guess because this morning it's a good chance to just keep cold allow some of that snow pack did not melt off in the sierra nevada. i mean, it would be cold enough to almost see some snow here in the bay area with what we're looking at this morning.
5:01 am
not the most fun to be stepping outside. but it will be your instant coffee. i guess we can, you know, right up as that cold wind hit show when he opened the door. you look outside of berkeley hills camera right here crystal clear. it is dry. that is a nice change of pace. so your commute itself is going to be easier. but you're trading that in for just the way it feels this morning which is really cold. morgan hill san jose fremont each at 39 right now dublin at 36 degrees. santa rosa you're 33 and saint helene at 32 some of our more rural spots that are inland valleys falling into the upper 20's. so this is the coldest morning of the season so far. >> nevado and conquer down 11 degrees from what was already a chilly morning yesterday oakland, hayward and san francisco temperatures down 9 degrees and the biggest change that santa rosa down 15 degrees from 24 hours ago. so rain. it's really cold out there. but at least travel conditions are better. exactly. i guess that's a good trade off this morning as you're hitting the roads definitely just bring a jacket. but you can take a little extra time today. a
5:02 am
little under 9 minutes as you're heading into the city right now to that fremont street exit no accidents along 5, 1880, as you're traveling along hayward in berkeley heading across towards the peninsula. little under 13 minutes golden gate bridge 37 to the tolls about 24 you there. and the south bay. let's check on this quickly to 37 85 in 82. i don't see any accidents 85 to menlo park about a 30 minute drive. darya james, back to you. thanks. it's 5. '02, and happening today. bay area schools are going to be on high alert. there was a disturbing tiktok challenge going on and it threatens violent. yeah. the tick talk threat has appeared in school districts nationwide. it's so serious. in fact, that one high school is canceled. classes today. >> just out of abundance of caution. we have kron four's will tran live for us in the east bay with more on this. well. >> that's cool that we're talking about james. it's gilroy high school and they have finals set for today. and you know how important finals are, but they're not messing around. they've already told the parents and the kids we
5:03 am
will push that back until january now other schools, they will have classes today, including the one right behind me. despite them and everybody else pretty much in the country seeing the threat. so let me pull it up for you. it's making its way around social media. and as you know, james and area, it just takes seconds to reach millions of people. so people have seen this and it basically says that it is not a threat, a challenge which in my opinion makes it even worse that it's not one specific school that's being threaten us. just generic. it's anonymous. it's a challenge and it basically says december 17th is national shoot up your school day as far as gilroy high school. obviously they have been paying attention to all of this as well. they thought about it. they could have easily brought in more security officers. police officers to patrol that campus and other campuses with in gilroy. but they're saying no, it's not even worth it. they have not specifically received
5:04 am
a threat, but they say no classes today. probably they will resume on monday, but they did not specifically say that we've got a chance to s lk to some parents here what they had to say about classes being canceled. >> all the violence. that's going on at their i think that in in an abundance of caution, it was the right thing to do. and so i was actually very relieved to to hear that they were doing the right thing. >> a case. so tiktok did release this is nothing new to take stock all explain in just a few moments. but this is the latest situation. tiktok said said we handle even rumored threats with utmost seriousness, which is why we are working with law enforcement to look in 2 warnings about potential violence of schools even though we have not found evidence of each threat originating or spreading via tiktok. now, i did say that tiktok obviously has had a lot of practice behind all of this
5:05 am
and here's the reason why a lot of kids are using tiktok as their form, not so much facebook or even twitter. but tiktok, it seems to be the choice for this tiktok. back in october. they had a national slap your teacher day. so tiktok had to work with investigators at that particular time and no arrest happened as far as that specific threat and then the month before that was vandalizing your bathrooms in your school. so this is happening more frequently. tiktok is working with law enforcement officers across the country a little of sure they're working with the fbi as well. we are going to go around at the schools throughout the bay area and obviously talk to parents and teachers. but you might want to hug. this is just me talking. you might want to hug your kids a little bit higher this morning because we live in incredibly scary times. james and ari, a. thank you will. >> 5.

center. he's actually got a closer look at the drought impacts and with the current forecast is now on that front. hey, john. yeah. we've had 2 big atmospheric river so far. so that does help out a little bit, but we are so deep into drought. >> that even those couple of atmospheric rivers we've had. all right. getting us out of the exceptional category of drought just yet. okay. so this is where we're sitting on october 1st right here, the start of the water year. and when we were really deep and route. you can see that exceptional drought maroon. that's your worst category stretching from the bay area down into the central valley where all the agriculture, of course, takes place after our first atmospheric river. we took a step back from them are in the exceptional back into extreme the second worst category of drought, which is a bad situation, but improved across the bay area after that, we've seen further improvement. some of the north coast is back into a moderate category of drought. now. but as for the bay area's portions of santa clara alameda and contra costa counties are still in that exceptional category. so we have a big improvements here. but of
5:19 am
course, even a couple of big storms are going to pull us out of a drought that spanned a couple of years. so we still need that tap to further be flowing if it runs out. we're going to be a bad set up, but we are looking hopeful for the next couple of weeks here as we continue to see wet weather. and it's actually kind of nice to dry out for a couple of days. allowing some of the rain and snow that we've seen recently to sink into the ground a bit. this is your view at donner summit right here. 80 is clear. crews have had a great chance to get a handle on that up there with no new snowfall. the next couple of days. today, tomorrow and even sunday are going to be a-ok days to be heading on up into the sierra. it looks like we may need to be wrapping right now. is that correct. you can still all right. heard a wrap, but that's okay. so we are going to be looking at conditions today. that will be nice and clear we are going to see clear conditions as well on up into the sierra nevada and that is something that is going to make for that good

5:33 am
minutes for you there. we have some hot spots along 24 yesterday along 80 crockett to the maze. looks like conditions of dried out. we had a lot of flooding. 15 minutes as you're traveling there and southbound 6.80 dublin to fremont a little under 14 minutes started. james, back to you. the time the big story this morning, public health officials in contra, costa county, our reporting early signs of a winter covid surge. yeah. doctors say that thanksgiving gatherings are probably to blame for this. that's what the timing seems to indicate the sharpest rise in covid-19 cases has been in the eastern part of the county. >> and that's where vaccination rates are lower than the rest of the population. we're talking about richmond conquered. and they've all reported the highest number of cases this past 2 weeks. doctors say the virus appears to be spreading. most among school age children and young adults. >> i just spoke with our contact tracers today and they said that some of the numbers that have come through just in the last few days are
5:34 am
approaching some of the summer numbers we saw back in august. so that is concerning. >> health officials say more than 77% of contra. costa county's population is fully vaccinated. but only 30% have gotten the booster shot at this point. there are no reported cases of the omicron variant. >> well, in an effort to try and get more people vaccinated oakland is reopening one of its major vaccine clinics. it was forced to close earlier this month. so that should go a long way now that what they're hoping is that it will be easier people to get vaccinated and key boosted stinson is live with the details. hi, sara. >> good morning. what good news to hear when you have the vaccine clinic reopenings in a lot of people were confused and worried when they heard that the clinic at the frank ogawa plaza in downtown oakland was closed abruptly last week will this week they got it together and it is reopened how helpful is that?
5:35 am
these we know it. there's a high demand for people who are still trying to get boosters. and then of course, get their kids vaccinated as well. there's also a location at the and fruitvale that one is also open. it never closed. but they do have new hours will get to that. it's good timing to have more clinics to be available since the oakland unified school district is now requiring students to get vaccinated. the school board has extended the deadline from january. first to january 31st giving families for weeks to get students vaccinated. >> or they will have to do distance learning now take a look at the new hours for the reopen vaccine clinic in the downtown location. again to 50 frank ago plaza. it's open monday through friday so you can go today if you need to from 9 in the morning until 5 o'clock. by the way, they do have testing as well. so a great resource and then the fruit bill covid clinic. that one has new hours so listen up for that. you can't go today because it's only open
5:36 am
saturday through wednesday and that one's on east 12th street. they they're open from 9 until 5 o'clock and holiday hours at that for bill there even open on christmas day noon to 5 and they're open on new year's day 10 to 5. so a lot of availability which again, good timing because there are those families. we're probably going to have to crunch to get their students vaccinated if they want them to go to in-person learning by that deadline. in january. 31st darya james, it was certainly confusing when it closed. hopefully we can get a clarification as to how it reopened. we know it was closed due to a low staff and limited vaccine. so we'll be following this morning for now, back to you. alright. thanks a lot, sarah. >> ok, let's go to the south bay now where the health officer in santa clara county has announced 10 confirmed cases of the omicron variant. and again, all all of them had
5:37 am
to be hospitalized. and in addition to those confirmed cases doctor sarah. sarah cody says that the variant has also been detected in all 4 santa clara county's sewage, sheds doctor cody says the best way to stop the spread is, of course, to get vaccinated. that includes the booster shot as well. and don't forget, you have to wear a mask if you want to get tested, you have to wear a mask pretty much anywhere anyway. >> this is about layers of prevention. no single strategy works. we have to combine them. >> health officials say that 80% of the entire santa clara population is vaccinated for those age 50 and older who are fully vaccinated. the numbers are more alarming. only half in that age group has actually been boosted. >> cal osha standards board has extended its covid workplace rules for another 90 days. beginning january 14th. they did make some significant changes up to now, if you are exposed and you are vaccinated. you could go back
5:38 am
