9:24 pm
>> happy to be here. have we all seen this movie where something goes terribly wrong? well, i'm okay with that. that anything to nothing to worry about that the sort of robots that can looks more like robots like she doesn't really like that when you are very close and you can the robot is very fluid in its movements and also its expression. can you show us your range of motion? a lot of people interested in you at the show this year. recognize expressions. body language is poses wet gaza. that was
9:25 pm
amazing. you never know. which idea here might just become the next big thing like this flying electric car, which is why i love coming to this show. >> in las vegas, i'm rich demuro and you are tech smart. >> very cool. coming up on have your full bay area weekend forecast and what you can expect for those of you heading out to for the long holiday weekend. stay tuned.

9:27 pm
9:28 pm
>> we'll go back now to our coverage of the tsunami advisory is officially over was effect, though, for many hours through much of the bay area today. and while it seems damage was pretty limited, it was not without its dangers. there have been several water rescues performed throughout the day today as a result of high surf and strong tides. we've seen that started around 7.30, this morning. barco has the details. a advisory force, emergency crews to close all san francisco beaches and coastal point saturday morning. >> parts of the bay area saw between one to 3 foot ways. the conditions were so powerful at kelly's cove, a surfer's board broke and crews had to search and rescue the person. the san francisco fire department says that the highest danger associated with
9:29 pm
these conditions is a strong rip currents. this could actually pull a grown adult into the water and you can become a victim. >> which nobody wants to be throughout the day. park rangers didn't allow cars on ocean beach. >> or at the marina parking lots out of an abundance of caution. if the water got too high. well, later saturday morning, san francisco moved into what is called the green status. officials notify people that the conditions wouldn't flood any homes or businesses, but that people should avoid going in the water. >> however, just 12 miles south of san francisco waves rocked pacific. a strong currents caused for some minor flooding on the boardwalk. now, while the damage was minimal and san francisco officials remind people of what you should do in case of a tsunami advisory. >> for example, stay away from the beaches, piers or docs. you know, there's so many things in san francisco that you can do and are they going to the beaches? we have amazing parks that are inland.
9:30 pm
>> we have a safe streets and slow streets throughout san francisco. officials also ask that you avoid driving during these times. >> to keep the roads open for emergency vehicles. if you are in a safe area, stay there. but if you are on the beach corp here and could not evacuate, call 911. >> in san francisco, camila barco kron. 4 news. >> so we are taking a deeper dive into what happened. but we want to find out more like why it happened and what's being done to protect us. so for answers to our questions tonight, we're being joined live by seismologist doctor lucy jones. thank you for joining us here on kron 4 tonight. >> good to be here tonight. thank you. so the last time we had any type of tsunami advisory in the bay area was in march of 2011, there was an earthquake in japan. and what followed were these huge waves that did almost 20 million dollars in damage to santa cruz. there's a lot of flooding in that area. that was more than a decade ago.
9:31 pm
how rare are these type of events or the becoming more frequent? >> they're not becoming more frequent and there's their random. so there's a very ability to it. but about once a decade, think back. we also that was the 2004 indonesian tsunami did not do a lot here. go back to the 60's. we had a couple of events, both chile and alaska. so you know that once a decade as it is that general average that we see them around the world. >> so talk a little bit about this underwater volcano that triggered all of this. we know that this erupted under water, triggering these massive waves. these the tsunami advisory. how does this all work and what are some of the lessons that we need to take away from this as we move forward? >> okay. well, the fundamental of a tsunami is something changes the shape of the seafloor and that moves the water out of the way. just like if you, you know, drop the rock in your bath tub that that would push the water
9:32 pm
around spreads out across the ocean. you have to move a lot of water for it to cause and effect on the other side of the pacific. it's either one of these really great earthquakes like in 2011 where, you know, the the firm fault actually moved over 200 feet during the earthquake. so a huge amount of water was displaced. or some of these very, very eruptions can do this. in this case, it was a submarine volcano, very active volcano that grows explodes. 6 backup below the water level occasionally has some small islands. you can see it in the symmetry as a as a cold air from the previous times that it's exploded. the last time it exploded in huge eruption was probably about 1000 years ago about 1100 ad. it, in fact, has been having smaller options since about 2000, 9. the current unrest began back in december. and we were
9:33 pm
seeing small events coming on and get, you know, gas is coming out and a steam from the ocean. and then it finally culminated in this very explosive event that blew out a lot of material. caused the island that was there to disappear. it's gone somewhere underneath. and so you're getting slumping down across the seafloor. the details are going to be studied by the, you know, the scientists over weeks and months to determine exactly but something big change in the shape of the volcano and because it was under water that displaced all the water that was there. now, the reports also say that the original explosive event was extremely large with a very large sonic boom that was actually heard in new zealand, which is about 1300 miles away. so and and could be recorded on gauges here, you know, across north america as well. so that that sonic boom,
9:34 pm
the original explosion was really a brockton, really, really large. and that seems to have generated a lot of moved out. a lot of the water. now the tsunamis have continued. i mean, that the disruptions, the waves have been continuing. most of the day, 8. that's advisories have been canceled for most of the coast at this point. but i think there is still a piece like around santa barbara that might still be having ongoing fluctuations and in water level. and that's probably there's a cup of the nation of, you know, when you move the water out, it bounces around off of things. there's lots of echoing but also potentially that the eruption was not something that just happened at the second of that big explosion that we all heard that was but rather probably continued over the hours continuing to push material through the ocean and displace more of the water. so the tsunami advisories have all been the tsunami advisories have all been canceled for the bay area. and most of >> the california coast. are
9:35 pm
you surprised that something that far away and this type of seismic event had this type of impact on us here in the bay area. now, i mean, i think that >> it's one of the things that is an earth scientist we get used to is that there are things that happen on geologic time, which is very rare by human time. but eventually one of them is going to be happening. and we have seen these type of very large explosions creating tsunamis. >> around the world before. >> and if you know anything that has happened can happen again. >> so doctor, lucy jones, before we go, are we gonna have a big earthquake this year? and if i can tell you that i'd be a lot richer than i am. what i can tell you is what probably almost certainly have a magnitude 5 in california because it be a very rare year that did not have a magnitude 5. >> magnitude 6 is pretty likely to whether it's in a place that affects people. that's now is my next question where where is this going to be happening? wish i could
9:36 pm
tell you that, you know us and we do rates. we can say that volcano goes once every 1000 years. our magnitude 7, sir, once a decade somewhere in the state. doctor, lucy jones, thank you for joining us here on kron 4 tonight. thanks for having me. so we first told you about the tsunami advisory and that being canceled through our kron 4 and kron on apps. that's where you can find the latest information. >> and also get details on if bay area beaches are going to be closed on sunday or monday as well as the current weather forecast in your neighborhood, you can download those apps right now for free. >> we're going to go into a crystal ball. so the next time we talk to her, she can have some more definitive answers there. a live look at the golden gate bridge tonight as we wrap things up on this saturday, folks out and about enjoying some. shenanigans on a saturday night going out. >> and big niner game tomorrow got to stay home. rest up. you know, people got to get party started a little early deal with that raiders lost to.
