10:09 pm
authorities say at least one first responder and at least six others have been hurt in the fires. the first fire started just before 10 30 this morning and was attacked pretty quickly. contained later in the day in his currently being monitored a second wildfire 30 minutes later ballooned and spread rapidly, sending people scrambling for cover. and by the time i made the decision to leave, everything was pretty much landlocked. unfortunately until you have something like this, you don't really realize how unprepared things are. but you know you do the best you can. the fire currently spans about 2.5 square miles and filled tonight sky with a smoky orange color. officials say down power line may have started the fire, they are hopeful that calmer overnight winds will help. in the firefight. back here in the bay area. the recent rain and snow is finally having an impact on california's drought conditions, according to this week's drought monitor. most parts of the bay area have now
10:10 pm
moved out of the exceptional drought category. you can see what it looked like just last week on the left, where there are many more areas in that darker red color. today's lighter image on the ride means the drought conditions were downgraded. the first year. a snow survey was held today and it confirmed a strong start to our winter season. water managers found california's mountain snow holds 160% of the water that it normally does this time of year. but it's great for use tom vacar reports. the drought will still linger, especially if we don't get much more rain or snow this winter. the california department of water resources went to philip station in el dorado county, one of many places that measures sierra snow each month to understand the true size of the snowpack as of this morning. or ah automated snow sensor network is reporting that the statewide snowpack is 160% of average to date, according to uc berkeley's sierra snow lab, the current snowpack is about what's normal
10:11 pm
for march 2nd a very good depth and hopeful for right now we have about 70% of our total snow pack up here and a little bit less of our total precipitation , and we're going into those rainier and snowy or months that january and february when we could really bulk this up, but what really counts is the final measurement. at the end of the snow season. april 1st is the official measurement that everyone's after for you know what it means for our water resources for the year. so what's the biggest worry now? the big concern here is that we don't get any more precipitation , and that would obviously kind of be a worst case scenario. we also have the next three months to hope this early, big dump of snow will not be washed away by heavy rains. or melted by warm weather. that's because we need the water to feed into the reservoirs for at least into early summer. if things go well by april, the snow will be very compact and dense depending on
10:12 pm
the density and everything, but yeah, if you have 100 inches of snow pack 40 inches of water is pretty likely. but for now, great for skiing great for snowboarding hard to snowshoe in looking at the national weather service is three month long range precipitation outlook for the northern sierra calls for neither above nor below precipitation. a balanced and hopeful view. tom vacar ktvu, fox two news. an emergency declaration from governor newsom about recent winter storms why tens of thousands of people are still dealing with power outages in the sierra s pg and e says it may be january. 10th before service is restored. in the showers have ended. for now. it's going to be cold tomorrow morning and tomorrow afternoon. we'll look into that, plus that rain does return at the end of the weekend early next week. we'll look into that, too. also it's happened again. tourists visiting san francisco have their car broken into, and this

10:21 pm
interstate 80 are still open to traffic at this hour, but authorities continue to ask people to stay off the roads unless they must travel. this is a live look right now at eastbound interstate 80 at donner summit where you can see, it appears as though a lot of people are heeding that warning. very few people out there on the roads right now. caltrans says drivers should be aware of the wet roads. and be prepared for plenty of traffic heading east southern california was hit with winter snow, massive flooding and soggy mudslides. today the highway patrol closed the grapevine section of i five in the mountains north of los angeles before dawn this morning due to snow and ice on the roadway. traffic was then backed up for hours before it was reopened this afternoon. and along pacific coast highway in santa monica and malibu. mudslides were another threat. caltrans work through the day to secure the areas. also 50 people were rescued from flooding at leo korea state park in malibu. the water was so high that cars and rvs were partially

10:26 pm
will be looking for this weekend. i sat in the back of the officers, dodge charger were primarily focusing on the y enforcement and try to reduce the deaths that happened on our freeways every holiday season. there are those who choose to drink and drive with often deadly results. let's think about what the holidays for us to be around your family and loved ones. so i'd like to put that out to people to just remember that there are people that would like them to get home safely. the officer says. many people assume they're okay to drive and sometimes people i feel like it's a little bit easier. i've had maybe one drink two drinks. i'm okay to drive. i just want to go home, but some never make it home, whether it's the drunk driver or an innocent victim on the freeway, the impact of a small lapse in judgment can affect people for their entire lives, some telltale signs that a driver is drunk, weaving speeding up, then slowing down, making unsafe lane changes and following too closely, there's a plethora of
10:27 pm
violations that can be associated with the white. we didn't come across any drunk drivers during our ride, but it didn't take long for the officer to find a violator on 5 18 year seminary avenue in east open. we're gonna make it enforcement stop on this black sedan up ahead. it's traveling at over 80 miles an hour posted 65 mph zone . you need mariana. testing, eliminating five. we're going to exit the freeway exit the freeway. it turns out the driver had a permit, but no license while speeding in his dad's lexus. he was given a warning on his speed. and he was ticketed for being on license. the chp's maximum enforcement period will last through new year's weekend in oakland. henry lee ktvu fox two news. the virus continues to throw curveballs that even the people with the best predictive models couldn't have forecasts. bay area hospitals, preparing for the worst their plan in case of a surge in hospitalizations. also one doctor weighs in on how

(soft music) hey dad, i'm about to leave. don't forget your hat . good morning. how can i help? i need help connecting with my students. behind every last minute save, ok, that works. and holiday surprise, thank you! a customer service rep is working unseen, making it happen. and at genesys, we're proud to help them help you everyday.
10:30 pm
and at genesys, officials say the test positivity rate in california is now 12.9% on monday. that number was just 5.4% the average daily case count over the past week has increased to more than 12,000. and over the past week, an average of 45 people have
10:31 pm
died each day, and we've also seen 300 new patients hospitalized statewide since yesterday. the latest numbers have area hospitals preparing for an influx of patients. but as ktvu is, brooks jarocz tells us doctors say hospitalizations are just a quarter of what they were during last winter's surge. i think we're going to be very busy. unfortunately as covid cases skyrocket, there's also an uptick of patients at california's hospitals. steam data shows more than 5500 right now, an increase of 6% since the previous day, doctors and healthcare workers anticipate a sharp rise in the next couple of weeks similar to other surges. we've always been vigilant. and we've always also always been cautious. i mean, the virus continues to throw curveballs that even the people with the best predictive models couldn't have forecast with the omicron variant driving cases to record breaking levels. kaiser and ucsf both say their hospitals are prepared getting beds, supplies
10:32 pm
and gear ready to go. but already some emergency rooms have seen more patients. especially among the unvaccinated and even children. there has been an increase in pediatric hospitalizations, um, not unexpectedly. but you know, it's something we would like to be able to turn off if we could. the problem is the virus is so infectious and transmissible at john muir medical center. the biggest concern is not having beds. it's having enough health care workers. currently staffing is our biggest issue. we have a large number of staff either. out with mild covid symptoms or with exposures awaiting testing in bad has really led us to have to limit some of our services. that means no new non urgent surgeries. elective surgeries are canceled and no more visitors in the hospital waiting rooms, given that a lot of the patients are coming in with covid like symptoms. we don't want our waiting rooms to be inundated with potentially
10:33 pm
infectious patients and visitors . but doctors say don't hit the panic button with omicron hospital stays are shorter and symptoms are milder. and the patient numbers don't reflect who's in the hospital specifically for covid versus those with covid. so you come in within an auto wreck and you get and you get screened, and it turns out that your covid positive where you come in for some elective procedure, and you get screened in your covid positive you coming to have a baby and someone screens you and your covid positive, but you have no symptoms at all. i think that's what some portion of this is that's really hard to sort out, those health experts say. go back to the basics. mask up, wash hands, get vaccinated and boosted and keep the hospital wave from rising. already some hospitals have doubled the number of patients from just a week ago. so if you're feeling sick, doctors say, don't wait to get medical help. right now, they say we're also seeing a surge in flu cases, and it's not too late to get that flu shot in the newsroom. i'm brooks jarocz ktvu, fox two news. for more on
10:34 pm
just how dire this current spike in covid cases is. we spoke earlier with dr bob wachter. he's the chair of ucsf's department of medicine. we test all of our people who are coming in for anything. if you're coming in for symptoms of covid , obviously we test you, but you also test you if you're having heart surgery or cancer, surgery or colonoscopy. and that's the group right now. 8% of those folks who have no symptoms of covid whatsoever are testing positive for covid. so implies that about one in 12 people who feel fine are currently carrying covid with them and might very well be infectious. so it's a it's a wild number far higher than any time we've seen in the last two years. dr walker said that judging from how the omicron variant has spiked and plateau and other countries, we could see a leveling off come february, the cdc warned today against going on cruises, regardless of your vaccination status, officials say dozens of ships are either under investigation or observation and
10:35 pm
as a result of covid-19 cases. but as fox news math in tells us some argue that cruise ships are actually safer than other places. warning to travelers from the cdc avoid all cruise ship travel, even though it's fully vaccinated. the updated guidance comes as health officials revised the cdcs covid-19 travel advisories placing cruise ships in its level four very high risk category, given the recent surge in covid cases, it's perplexing because quite frankly, the cruise industry does more. um then any other industry out there to make it as safe as possible for clients to enjoy their product, the cdc said it made the decision given coronavirus quote spreads easily between people in close quarters on board ships, and the chance of getting covid-19 on cruise ships is very high. yet some say cruise ships are safer than other groups settings. i've even gotten phone calls cruising. can
10:36 pm
we stay an extra week? we feel safer here than we feel. at a grocery store locally, you know what i mean and more in our hometown, but for some travelers , it makes sense. ashley peterson's eight day cruise from miami canceled it stops earlier this month due to reported cases of covid onboard. it was a bit of a nightmare. it was i would say it was very frustrating, and i definitely did feel like i was sailing on a petri dish. but the same warning doesn't hold for the airline industry. right now. we feel that the masking requirement and the degree of filtration on a plane is sufficient to keep people say, the cdc says. if you do choose to cruz get a vaccine booster and where a mask and shared spaces while on board in los angeles, matt finn fox news amtrak is reportedly reducing its schedule because of a spike in the number of coronavirus cases among employees in a memo obtained by the washington post , the company says it's forced

10:41 pm
concerns russia has been building up its military presence on the ukrainian border , stoking fears of a potential invasion. there's speculation that potentially it's because putin wants to deescalate the situation or potentially the exact opposite that he wants to lay out a list of aggressive demands. president biden says he's pushing for a diplomatic solution to the crisis in ukraine. he says he warned putin in their video conversation earlier this month. the u. s is prepared to respond with severe sanctions. and other measures. if russia should invade. i made it very clear, different fact. he invades ukraine will be severe consequences. severe consequences yet since that call, there have been no signs of de escalation on the ukrainian border. we have to support the sovereignty of ukraine. meanwhile russia is demanding guarantees. nato will never offer membership to ukraine or place forces or weapons in former soviet states.

word reached her family in the south bay. the doctor said she had 1% chance to live. and so, um, you know, we kind of thought that was it. the family could go to bali because of covid and insurance wouldn't cover the cost of a medical airplane to the bay area. the family raised more than $300,000 through go fund me was part of the people. wasn't very helpful through her medical care in rehab. mccaffrey has gone from a near vegetative state to being able to function . i want time to drink water. i need to get better, but we're giving them at least and i am motivation is even yesterday. i was just amazed to see the courage that caitlin's brought to the process of, you know, doing the sorts of things the things that we take for granted every day, but carefree, still faces more therapy and rehab as an outpatient. it's unclear if she can ever be the same as she was. as for traveling the world again. i don't know, but i used to love it so we don't know.

we'll see. i used to stupid super keep so i know i don't want you were overjoyed as you can imagine there's gonna be a lot of changes and a long road ahead. but we're just happy to have her home. mccaffrey says she has no recollection of how she crashed her scooter in volley, and there is no surveillance video. so how the accident happened remains a mystery. rob roth, ktvu fox two news. alright picture of the oakland estuary definitely cold out there tonight around the bay. we've got temperatures in the mid and low forties temperatures overnight will get down into the upper thirties, even mid thirties and parts around the bay. inland areas will be cooler than that significantly cooler at freezing or below freezing. so there's a satellite map. a few clouds the north of us that's going to keep us from getting below way below freezing. going to see a little bit of wind is what i'm trying
10:49 pm
to say, and that little bit of breezy conditions overnight or some wind overnight will help keep the temperatures up a little bit. that's set radar loop down in southern california course where they had the flooding. concerns for heavy rain, urban and small stream flooding there and then around here, radars clean for the first time in a while, right, not showing much of anything little green to the north of us, so weak system moves by, but overall, we're waiting for hold overnight. the winds are dying down a little bit, but we still in fairfield. we still have eight miles an hour kind of out of the south. west we've got liver morgan with the west wind. we've got samples over the north wind, so that helps the temperatures stay. manageable you know, and so right now it's 37 napa napa easily gets down into the low thirties 32. 33 degrees, maybe even a little cooler than that and some of the outlying areas. it's colder colder tonight than it was last night by seven degrees and napa by three degrees in oakland by four degrees in santa rosa, so the trend is cooler. these are the forecast overnight lows. 32 in fairfield, just it freezing
10:50 pm
and 32. we might see a little patchy valley fog. we certainly see frost and we'll probably see some areas in the north bay, with some freezing conditions like for more than an hour or two in the morning. so forecast tomorrow clouds when you wake up for a few clouds partly cloudy, partly sunny. then it clears off temperatures in san francisco and oakland and san jose easily into the mid fifties by lunchtime or by the end of the day lunchtime. most of us have been a low fifties. but by the end of the day, most of us mid fifties so here we go into tomorrow morning friday morning. and then friday afternoon. and then saturday morning. and then saturday afternoon. right looks good. and then here comes sunday , and that's the system that's going to change everything and bring us back into a weather regime will be looking at cooler or mild temperatures essentially but we will be looking at the potential for some rain, probably mostly into monday in tuesday. all right, bill. we'll

sharks back from christmas vacation rested, rejuvenated and, most importantly, couple of back to back spirited victories tonight at the tank welcoming the flyers and an old buddy of theirs. remember him? former goalie martin jones gets a nice hand doing some netminding for the flyers these days down one. nothing though. sharks shorthanded as well. second period logan couture with a steel put him on open ice. that's dangerous as he scores his 11th does the captain to tie
10:55 pm
it up 11. couple of minutes later, watch bomasch hurdle. he will get it to brent burns. that is a good idea. little rocket right? there is a third goal of the year. sharks leading to one. philly was able to tie it in the third, and this thing's going to overtime. so 4 29 in it's another steal a turnover by the flyers two on one break. erik karlsson, look at the patients just waiting to get it to tomas hertl, who is relentless at the net is 16th goal back to back games, he scores the game winner punch it in and overtime. 32 sharks with skate off victory. ending 2021 victoriously. they are 17 14 and one and i know you're saying hey, well, what happened to the warrior highlights? well if you didn't hear they were postponed tonight. you think they've had problems with covid? how about the denver nuggets? they had only seven players available. even their coach mike malone
10:56 pm
couldn't make any tested positive. that the warriors well, not completely wasted trip to denver for the most part this week had a chance to see another other than clay thompson work it out. they've got to work out in tonight. up in denver fully participated in the practice, and i'll tell you what clay looks spry and ready to go, and we could have a comeback for him in less than two weeks now and what he does, he ain't gonna be sitting around on the bench. clay is going to start when he comes back. i'm not gonna mess around and bring him off the bench for a period of time not doing any of that. he's going to start out 2.5 years and scrimmages are not the same as game time. we're going to have more than half the season ahead of us after once he comes back, and it'll it'll come and do time. this time of year. they're all huge games when you're in playoff contention, talking about the 49ers against the texans this sunday at levi's,
10:57 pm
and i'm just going to call it a perfect example of gamesmanship . they're not telling anybody who's going to start at quarterback for sure. jimmy gee says he's optimistic that will play. i think the guy who's been could be a quarterback for the 49 ers when the game starts. is that young man? trey lance working out. jimmy garoppolo didn't practice this week. the thumb injury on his throwing hand is not allowing them to even participate in drill, so i don't see how he's possibly going to start. as for the texans, don't take them lightly . they scored 41 against the chargers to win last sunday, only their fourth victory of the year. but fred warner knows this time of year. you can't just brush and everybody off. this is a week or we got to be hyper focused. it's got to be our best performance. you know, we've got to come in and start fast finish finishing faster. i think that's my mindset. you know, it's a one game season right now. and you
10:58 pm
know our whole entire focuses on the texans offense. it's gotta fall on our shoulders on defense. that's how i'm taking it. so many college bowl games to talk about. we don't have time for all of them, so we just pick the one with the strangest name the mayo pull the winning coach gets 4.5 gallons of gooey , gooey mayo poured on him. as for this game against south carolina versus north carolina, first quarter, zeb nolan zipping it to jaheem's bell. he will go 66 yards. quick 15 lead for south carolina and they wind up winning 38 21. true to his promise. the gamecocks coach shane beamer doused. with all that wonderful, gooey stuff, all right. we have had a lot of strange videos throughout the year of 2021 check this out that this is a particular favorite of mine. you do need to check this out. you've heard of rudolph the
10:59 pm
reindeer. this is ronaldo, the deer pretty good soccer player. but look at that. tell me he doesn't know what's going on there, right. he scored a goal, and then he celebrates. just like a true soccer player. that dance? yeah little victory lap right there. and, you know eventually, heather julie, we're all going to be replaced by robots. even in the nba. maybe this is the international basketball federation releasing this video, the robot who can move it and dribble as well, even with the left hand right there a lot of buttons on that machine, but no handles. i would say if you're a basketball star , but heather said, clear, so i said that that's at least one player that i could get a steal from all right. is reveling so slow lane. i agree with you. raymond could easily do with his blindfold. right that's the sporting life. all right, thanks
11:00 pm
