6:01 pm
pm when i comeback, i'll have a look at the current temperatures what we can expect for tomorrow and how long does heat is expected to last coming up? all right, rosemary. thank you. it's not just people withering under this type of heat. ktvu tom vacar joins us now live with how our aging infrastructure can buckle under the oppressive temperatures. tom. well, you really have to consider it this way, whether it's old infrastructure that we have to maintain and take care of and repair or whether it's brand new. you have to consider extreme heat with whatever action you take. urban areas due to high concentrations of buildings, parking lots and roadways become so called heat islands places that retain heat even overnight, potentially making the next day's heat up quicker and hotter. that results in increased energy use impaired water quality, higher air pollutants and greenhouse gases. consider reservoirs on a typical summer day, lake shasta, california's largest reservoir, loses 200 million gallons of
6:02 pm
water every day to evaporation enough to fill 22,004 sized gasoline trucks made even bigger by extreme heat. what about san pablo? reservoir we s to me about four million gallons. the day evaporates at san pablo reservoir. that's 444 tanker trucks full every day, smaller lafayette reservoir, an emergency water supply loses 50 trucks full every day. we are seeing some increase over time of evaporation app. our reservoirs, residential swimming pools see the loss of 2 to 4 inches of water per week. normal sized pools lose 25 to 50,000 gallons of water per year to evac. duration plus an equal amount lost from a typical yard. big picture. smaller snowpacks. it means less water for reservoirs and wildlife and far less cheap hydro electricity. now consider highways. typical extreme heat.
6:03 pm
impax paved surfaces, including expansion of pavement and bridge joints. as well as softening of older asphalt and other materials, sometimes resulting in disruptive and costly buckling extreme heat, especially prolonged extreme heat can have an effect on our roadways and infrastructure. biggest problem. old asphalt not made to stronger modern formulas. they can buckle or crash, especially if you go through a heating event, and then it cools off very quickly, then you can have cracking happened and extreme heat can often soften and warped rail systems, causing trains to slow down by half an hour over a 70 mile runs. so just for interest. i took this professional digital thermometer out into the backyard and the pool water, which is under a plastic cover is 97 degrees. the barbecue cover, which is a metal cover was 109 degrees, and the papers
6:04 pm
were 135 degrees, and it's only about 96 degrees outside so you can see how infrastructure big infrastructure retains heat well into the night. maybe into the next day. tom vacar ktvu fox two news. yeah, it's going to be a warm weekend all weekend, tom. thank you very much. well yosemite national park could see temperatures as high as 111 degrees in the coming days. park officials are warning visitors to be prepared and stay hydrated. they say it's a good idea to avoid strenuous hiking, especially after 10 in the morning as temperatures increase. the warm weather in yosemite is not expected to break any records, but it could come close in 1915, the national park. market 115 degrees bay area firefighters in oregon tonight to help find a raging wildfire there to strike teams from local fire agencies, including fremont, oakland, hayward and san mateo, are in claim of county about 30 miles north of the oregon state line there battling the bootleg fire, which has burned more than 60
