tv KRON 4 News at 6am KRON December 23, 2021 6:00am-7:01am PST
>> from the bay area's local news station. you're watching the kron 4 morning news at 6. >> good morning. and here's a live look at this storm. it's a monster. while this is a big storm. but we're all in it together. we're all in it. feel better at all. a lot better make more reassured way now. but it's not like missouri likes it's like happiness like to help plants need this and the this all of that. it's a good and tahoe needed were good all around. we can take a little rain, just prepare for it and no one is coming where it's coming along a tear. and that's what john, that's where he comes exactly. you got to know what it's going to be here. and when you get that break from it too, because it is that busy time of year right now. so many people have travel plans shopping or errands that need to be done so in that case you really got to pay attention and this morning it's not going to be the best time for any of that. >> if you can stay at home until around noontime, then you can venture outside post
that it will be a whole lot nicer for it. your view outside currently is showing your berkeley hills camera. with that low cloud cover and the heavy rainfall that we see working its way back into the bay right now that heavy swath of rain that has returned to the peninsula. san francisco over our bridges from the san mateo bridge on up to the bay bridge out to the east bay from hayward up to oakland in richmond really picking up out that direction. so our bridges are wet. it is windy as well. not your best morning for travels. i know not a lot of people are on the roads compared to a normal commute anyways but still take it slower. you got to slow yourself down when there's not traffic to do it for you. south bay conditions are a little calmer for the time being. but your rainfall will also pick up later on north a little bit calmer and the inland east bay is calmer for now generally this line of showers is moving to the north and east, though, so it will inundate areas like along 6.80 further out towards the car. king is in the delta here in just a matter of time. so just to prepare yourself for that for sure. as we do look at this rainfall picking up. in fact, we can track it in
future cast right here. showers will move to the northeast. but generally slide to the south gradually through the morning. this means areas like san jose where you haven't seen the rain picking up as much as the rest of the bay area yet you've got your heavier dose of rainfall just a little bit later on this morning post noontime will really start to see signs of clearing. and then we've actually got a really nice afternoon ahead of us with some sunshine. but between those areas of sun, the isolated opportunity for some thunderstorm development too. just keep that in mind. don't get too comfortable stepping outside later on today. tonight we will see another resurgence of rain during your pre-dawn hours tomorrow during christmas eve. your longest break from the rain. in fact, we'll get a lot of sunshine on your friday. take full advantage of it because friday night into saturday. one of our heaviest of systems will be moving in. this one is going to come along with colder temperatures to that's going to be more snowfall in the sierra nevada friday night into saturday for christmas 50's for our current temperatures. it is a warm start to this day. it's
actually going to be pretty mild afternoon to all keep you updated on those showers as we move through the morning rate as people are getting outside. they're venturing out to some really wet stuff. exactly. is really wet out there. we are seeing a couple of accidents out there. >> 1, 5.80, westbound east of grand avenue in oakland. you got another one. while highway 4 westbound at port chicago highway in concord in the south bay. we have 1, 1, 1, northbound south of 8.80, north and i'm seeing a slight delay from that to traveling from the east bay into the city about 13 minutes for you. the let's head over look at the san mateo bridge because we have an accident on the bridge. now 92 westbound at. right at the high rise. so that is slowing us down a little bit as you're heading across towards the peninsula. you definitely want to drive a little slower and take it easy for you. there. also, let's check out the richmond sandra fell bridge as you're heading out of richmond across towards san rafale. you can see all those slick conditions along the bridge. so about i would say a 13 minute drive for you. the golden gate bridge traveling from the north bay into the city about 23
minutes. take it slow and easy as you travel a lot more weather and traffic coming up. for now, let's talk about the sky. all weather to the airport do because these are big travel days. >> for the christmas vacations well, we see rain at sfo. you know what that means exactly. delays delays all over the place. and there are some actually this morning. unfortunately, look at this san francisco is looking at 10 cancellations and 29 delays. all i got. should you like doubled in the last half hour last time we checked. so those are stacking up. san jose cancellations. neither is oakland, but they have delays. so it's something to keep in mind and as will tran knows, i like to call sfo the happiest place on earth because it's never the happiest place on earth. and then he had covid and you know, the in the holidays and all of that and everybody is concerned. so let's go out, you will. and now he is in oakland this
morning taking a line that oakland is truly the happiest they have his airport on earth. i love oakland. i love the look >> oakland is strategically place because they say a lot of the bay area employers are based in the east bay at least more than half of them. so it's perfect and most of the population is in the east bay. if you want to break it down. so this is great for so many people and if you're coming now, guess what, you dodged a bullet because let me show you some video that we shot about 30 minutes ago, guys, look at the long lines just to get through the checkpoint. and believe me, it's a victory even to get to this location because as soon as you walk in, if you ever been to oakland international. you know where baggage claim is. so the line, ashley stretched all the way back to baggage claim and then snaked around almost outside to drop off locations. that's how bad it was as so many people are
traveling. this is as close as we are going to see to 2019 levels. they expect about 90% of 2019 levels. 375,000 people from now until january 2nd will pass through oakland international and if the long lines don't scare you enough. well, there's on the crime. i've got a chance to talk to a woman heading to see her daughter. that is on her mind. of course i am worry about was about the council. going to a possible fix. this and i spoke to my daughter just you know, before i went to sleep. >> and she said that that was really bad and but you're going anyway. regardless you know that. you know, the stuff like >> ok. so doctor fauci says as long as you're vaccinated and you're in that bubble and
they're vaccinated. you should be okay. i mean, there's a chance always that you could come down with something. but at least you put on that body armor, so to speak, to do everything that you can as far as travel across the country. they expect about a 109 million people to travel from now until january 2nd across the country and that is that 92%. what we saw since 2019. so this is pre pandemic. if you're coming down. now, i got to tell you. this might be a delight because i'm not complaining were inside we're dry outside. the weather is so frightful but inside saw what? and we like the delightful outfit that you have underneath. >> when you get to go full santa claus. and are you working tomorrow. >> yeah. i'm working just the one people getting triggered by seeing an asian santa has a lot of people. let's face it, they will get triggered less.
the santa was every color. is black in my home. sure well, celebrated like guns. >> another big story that we're following is in the north bay. we've all been talking about covid and in marion county. the thing everybody is going to gather for the holidays. they've already seen omicron and now they're thinking it's going to really rock exactly. it's been scary for a lot of people, kron 4 barco has been following that tracking the numbers. how are you this morning? camilla. well, daria rain on the county's public health officer says that we should assume that every one of these covid cases is most likely due to omicron because it's spreading. >> so fast. now. the county reported a 112 new covid cases on tuesday alone. and that's the highest number of cases in one day since january in moraine county. the county county's public health officer doctor matt willis is reminding people to not let your guard down. he says that the omicron variant is taking
over as the dominant strain in marine county as it is in other parts of the world county officials are starting to see a surge mark on the kron cases just less than a week after the county detected its first case, the person travel to the east coast. they were fully vaccinated, but they had not received a booster shot. the omicron variant is known to be highly transmissible and that's why county officials say that the variant could pose as a wrist during the holiday season with people gathering. so will is distressing to practice covid safety when leaving your home or inviting people over christmas eve. it's tomorrow less than 24 hours a day and many people are going to be getting together and hosting. and there's a few you can have fun and enjoy the company and also stay safe. take a look at your screen. these are some tips from county officials limit the party to people who are fully vaccinated and boosted keep the party small.
if you're gathering do it outside or inside where there is good ventilation write down the name of people who are attending the party just in case there is a covid outbreak. keep the indoor activities to a minimum and ask your attendees to take a covid test that but the message that we have all been hearing from health experts is to get vaccinated, get boosted and many clinics and vaccination sites are going to be closed because of the holidays. but if you're in moraine county officials are offering covid shots at the north bay mall today that site opens at 09:00am and those shots will be offered on a first come first served basis iranian back to you. thanks a and emery county, by the way, the long lines for because every time you get because that if you get a sniffle like i got to know i just want to be sure. i want to. >> you know, and then you get the test and then they say but the great thing is the lady who put the thing on my like a butterfly. it she was amazing. yeah. and it's no flu. it's no
covid. it's no nothing. so what you can do is worth the wait, though. that yeah. hey, liz covid-19 cases on the rise and we talked about here in california, governor gavin newsom says the state is also focused on expanding access to testing are talked about how long the lines are on newsom says the state is going also provide up to 2 covid test all public kindergarten through 12th grade students before they head back to class. just remember marine county give them out and it wasn't always you that everywhere, right eye. so now newsom is let's do it statewide as state leaders are committed to keeping schools open. so they're doing this by trying to make sure all the kids there are tested. cannot impress upon you more how important it is to keep our schools open and how important it is to get our kids tested. >> vaccinated and continuing our mask requirements. >> newsom also announced the state's 2.5 million health care workers face a new state mandate. the governor says all
workers are going to require to have their booster shots by february. 1st. a lot of people in the bay area struggling to find those at home i told you about, you know, i got a couple for thanksgiving and now they're out of the stores cvs and walgreens. supervisor in contra, costa county is doing his part by giving them making it easy. john boyer represents west contra costa county. and this week his office in el serino started handing out those covid tests that you can take home with you for free and word got out and look at the lines but you know what? but i mean, it's better than driving around town looking for these covid test and the pay. and i think it was about 24 bucks, the 12 bucks each. so he's getting for free and the supervisor is hoping that, you know, that what they last and that they'll keep doing this because he wishes there were more widely available. >> county test sites are overloaded as well, which is seeing a major increase demand for testing we're seeing an
overwhelming response people wanted to get tested. so we're getting home test kits we've distributed over the last 2 days around 2500 cast. >> they're just going to do their best to keep up with supply because the demand sure is out there and if if you you know, even if you don't need the test. now. ray what i yes. so get and keep it home and then hold on. just make it yes, good. that's good. >> yeah, i say if you can see one in the story probably just get it, especially because you don't out too much his next few days anyways so limit your to those drier hours like we'll see this afternoon. this morning. it is wet out there. if you don't have to go outside this morning. still bother with it. we get the heavy rain on the peninsula. san francisco, north bay as well as the golden gate bridge bay bridge richmond center fell bridge all through the east bay. watch for those puddles spots of water on roads as this rain
>> 6.16 right now. and while the storm is a monster she was coming down pretty hard outside right now because muster make it sound like it's bad. it's ounce big. okay. okay. good because yeah. i'm not afraid of it. i won't melt or anything. yeah. well, you it kind of looks like a monster too. when you look at it on the radar. the green. yeah, oh, yeah. and the abominable snowman out with the blue. that is a little
less abominable. this time around. yeah, you'd like to see more of that blue. but. >> it's a warm system. so this is your look at who right now and it's a mix of rain and snow. much as we saw yesterday, unfortunately, this is helping to melt a little bit of the snow pack that we've achieved the past few weeks off a tahoe. but here's the good news that may be a cold warm start to the storm. but things will be cooling down in the forecast ahead of us specially into next week. that's when we're going to really stack up some snowfall in the sierra. as for the bay this morning. look at this. we got a line of showers stretching from san francisco on up through sacramento north bay conditions. some of our lightest rainfall continued into the core of the bay area, though, from brentwood in antioch on over to concord walnut creek down 24 into richmond, oakland and berkeley eventually on to the peninsula. wit san francisco on up into marine county down on to the peninsula itself. we are seeing some of those pockets of heavier rainfall. this is resulting in some standing water on roadways. so you want to take it a little
bit slower out there. the mountains above san jose are getting some upslope and that's the heavier rainfall that you're seeing right now right around mount hamilton san jose itself actually on the calmer side multiple system set to drop into the bay area. it's really one after the dropping into the bay these next several days. breaks from the rain and then rainfall will pick up this morning. certainly not a break from it. we have the heavy rain across the bay area. tell around noontime today after which point you actually get some sunshine and there but don't get too comfortable chance of thunderstorm development into the afternoon is very possible that could result in an uptick in rainfall in a very short amount of time without a lot of warning. so be ready for it tomorrow morning. some pre-dawn showers that won't last very long at all. this will actually be followed by some nice clearing going on your christmas eve afternoon. our longest break from the rainfall will be for mid morning tomorrow all the way into mid afternoon with some sunshine in there, too. so do enjoy that get that shopping done any sort of travel. you need to get done as tomorrow night into christmas day on
saturday rainfall and snowfall the for that matter. really pushes back in this time around cold enough that we're really going to start to see snowfall piling up in the sierra nevada and it's going to continue to be that way through sunday. monday, tuesday, even possibly into wednesday of next week ahead of this. we already have winter storm warnings in effect for to 8 feet of snowfall piling up in those highest elevations in the sierra. now, as far as temperatures go today. it's another mild one upper 50's to low 60's. that's why it's not really the most wintry of storms just yet. but temperatures do cool down pretty significantly into next week and that will even allow for maybe some snowfall in our highest bay area peaks like mount tam mount hamilton, possibly even a top twin peaks towards the middle of next week. rainfall at its heaviest this morning again, friday night into saturday and likely some more heavy rainfall next week. reyna john, thank for that. right. let's start in the in the south bay when they will >> accidents. one. oh, one northbound at cochran rolled out in morgan hill and then
san jose want to one north down south of 8.80, north. you're looking at the bay bridge right now traveling from the east bay into the city to take about 14 minutes. let's go ahead and look at the san mateo bridge where there is an accident on the westbound side of the bridge there near the high rise. so as you're traveling, we are seeing delays about a 20 2 minute drive for you here down in mountain view northbound south that boulevard. there is an accident. there on richmond. looking at that commute about 13 minutes heading across or sandra fell 5.80, westbound east of grand avenue in oakland. you got an accident along there. and in pleasant hill said city southbound north of oak park boulevard. an accident. there. 20 minutes for you as you're traveling from the north bay into the city. still take it easy because conditions are slick and wet will have more weather and traffic coming up. but for now, let's get back to our national story. yes, families are preparing to gather for the holidays. health officials are worried about covid. doctors are blaming the omicron variant for the new surge we're seeing
in the hospital. exactly. anna wiernicki joins us live from dc with the latest on how health officials are responding to the search. good morning, anna. good morning. well, us health regulators announced yesterday that the first pill against covid-19. >> has been authorized to now this we did milestone comes as the omicron variant continues to spread and the rapid rate. >> the fda has given its stamp of approval on the first antiviral pill to treat covid-19 the very good news is that we have a product now that has about a 90% efficacy in preventing hospitalization. white house chief medical advisor doctor anthony fauci says pfizer's pill is a huge step in the fight against covid americans can take the pill at home before they get sick enough to be hospitalized. white house press secretary jen psaki says the administration has pre purchased 10 million doses of the pill in a 5 billion dollar deal and will be prepared to
distribute as and another of our treatment options around the country as soon as supply is ready. but white house covid-19 response coordinator jeff zients says making the pill takes time roughly 6 to 8 months and now that the phils authorize will have to shuns to explore how we can help them improve their manufacturing capacity even further. >> by providing any resources needed wednesday's authorization comes at a critical time as hospitals are battling a new wave of covid this christmas fueled by the highly transmissible omicron variant and while the pill is expected to help reduce hospitalizations cdc director doctor rochelle walensky says vaccines still remain the first line of defense to fight covid to be very clear. our recommendations are to get this debt. >> now the cdc still needs to give their final stamp of approval. but the white house says once that happens and they're prepared to start distributing the pills to states immediately for now

get. well, as soon as you get it's true. it's mother nature brings themselves with yet. and then, you know, to shower in the actual shower and it saves water too. >> just make sure it's a concealed space we are in the midst of conditions out there that are very wet all across the bay area. we're very appreciative of this rainfall for sure. but it is coming at a time when we've got a lot to do between travel shopping isn't errands that we have to get done. >> your view outside a half moon. bay does look, rainy still very dark to get really see the rain much at this moment. heaviest of rainfall is sitting right in marine county over the richmond center fell bridge into the east bay shoreline right on over the peninsula to from san francisco down through the airport. the showers are generally moving inland. so we have seen rainfall picking up for areas like conquered on over towards benicia brentwood and oakley eventually out to the central valley to the south has been a little quieter thus far today, but it's not going to stay that way. rainfall will pick up for you later on this morning. so heavy areas of rainfall throughout the course of the
morning by noontime. we should see some clearing and even some sunshine towards the afternoon. watch for isolated afternoon thunderstorms, though, tomorrow morning during pre-dawn hours, a resurgence of rainfall. you can see on radar right there before longest break from the rain on christmas eve. that's tomorrow from mid morning on until middle of afternoon. best travel weather, best errands and shopping weather, too. so take advantage of that on christmas eve christmas eve night into christmas day is going to be really wet and a little bit colder. as for current temperatures, it's really mild 50's for almost all of the bay area right now hayward and fremont as well as livermore at 56 degrees. >> john, thank you for that. right. let's get a look at your wet commute as you're heading from the east bay into the city. although traffic is pretty light. you still have a number of accidents issues out there. there is an accident on the san mateo bridge. 92 westbound at the high rise still so you're looking at about a 25 minute drive for you this morning in the south bay to 80 northbound south of
lee avenue. and you have an accident there scene at this hour. another one along a northbound 8th avenue. richmond center fell bridge traveling across out of richmond about a 40 minute drive because of the wet conditions and the golden gate bridge. i'd say about 25 minutes because you want to take your time and drive slow because conditions are slick all right. and if you're going to be on the roads and be on the bay area and flying. well, you're going to be looking at delays. >> and cancellations, at least if you're going to sfo, it's messy out there. exactly. we're talking about how many delays we've been tracking that. okay. daria, last time we checked. i remember it was in the 20's. yeah. now, look, it. 35 delays at sfo and 11 cancelations. you don't want to be surprised and show up and go no flight. a san jose and oakland don't have any cancellations, but they do have a couple of delays actually, those delays have gone down. so that's good news. there. and kron four's will tran has been following the holiday travel spreading a little cheer at the airports this morning and how are
people the travels, their and ucla. some guys pointing at the after he saw me do him love yeah. you know what oakland news more durable than sfo. i mean, i can prove it. forget about the numbers. i will show you. >> that things are moving along because look at this, the lines all but dissipated to get to the tsa checkpoint. and on the other side, that's the ticket counter and southwest tends to be a little bit more popular than some of the other airlines here at oakland international and the lines they're not too bad as well. so despite the rain and probably poor visibility for the pilots. they are taking off. let me show you some video. however, if you're coming down, i would say from now maybe the 90 minutes or so. you dodged a major bullet because this is what a lot of people saw at around 5 o'clock in the morning when so many people saw the long lines just wrap around baggage claim and
that is. >> 50 yards or so probably from the tsa checkpoint. so that's how bad it was. and they have the numbers to say it will be bad and maybe even get worse. this being the busiest day. but rain up from now until january 2nd, they expect about 375,000 people to come through oakland international. that's about 90% of 2019 levels and across the country a 109 million people. we'll be traveling during that period and that's 92% of 2019 levels. not coincidentally. that was before we heard of anything. remotely like delta variant omicron covid-19. so make sure you come here early. your biggest obstacle might not even be the line. it is all that rainfall outside. i am not complaining whatsoever. you know, the u.s. of as and may. were raised by dummies give a choice outsider here.
easy choice all right. thanks a lot. well. >> the other big story that we're following. san francisco restaurant. some of them are saying being vaccinated isn't good enough. you have to be boosted to enter their places. exactly. those restaurants say they want to be very careful as omicron cases continue to rise. kron four's. taylor's aqi has that story. >> in addition, a proof of vaccination. some restaurants in san francisco are now taking it a step further and requiring proof of vaccine boosters doing a really good job. this gaping the defenses of initial vaccines that we receive. >> it seemed if if the standard for us was creating a safe environment and there was a safety tool and placed in stick and we need to put that in place to keep. >> everybody in that environment state may ignore says the chef at zuni cafe on market street. >> he says the restaurant will begin checking eligible customers for their booster status on wednesday. the 29th signs are already posted on their doors and staff have
been calling those with future reservations to let them >> got an app at the host and the restaurant at scanned it and then it pops up the information that we need to see and not really much more than that. >> should the vaccine. you know, vaccine been date that person's name and then we just have to see d and then that could become in it's a pretty fluid system. meanwhile, ca 7 san francisco's outer richmond neighborhood. >> already began shaking booster status is on wednesday making the announcement on their social media saying it's the best way to ensure staff and customers. stay safe this variant is and then hearing a lot of. >> they are saying that in all i have but know people that got it right. so we don't want to get day. >> owner. you got your roy says she's planning to close the restaurant for a week after the holidays as a precaution but will stay closed longer if omicron cases

>> 6.38 right now and in national news, despite the number of people are getting vaccinated being tested members of the san francisco men's choir. you can the chorus. they had to cancel their show because so many people had covid. they have breakthrough cases. so they decided to cancel all the performances of the home for the holidays shows. and those were supposed to happen in the castro theater. this friday and christmas eve. if you pre purchase your tickets, you can convert them into a tax deductible donation, which is nice. you still want a refund. you can get it. but this isn't the only a show that had to cancel because of covid. i just got an e-mail. where was it? that sh and had to cancel the yeah, they had to cancel their christmas show. you know, christmas, carol and so yeah, this is sad because it's
