you can see traffic barely budging in that westbound direction. if you have to get over to the peninsula from the east bay, i suggest you take the dumbarton bridge instead, time is seven. oh, one. let's go back to the desk. alright thanks, ali. well, cal fire crews continue to make steady progress against the electrified or burning in this year of foothills. now it's burned seven square miles in amador and calvary's counties since it started on the fourth of july. no homes have been damaged or destroyed and all evacuation orders have been lifted. most roads, including all of highway 49 have reopened. and contra costa county fire officials are asking everyone to stay away from a section of willow pass road in pittsburgh because of a smoldering fire there. the fire started last month in the pittsburgh martian of the decommissioned power plant on the delta, and it created heavy smoke this past weekend. that did draw attention from people nearby, including drone operators, and it made it difficult for firefighting aircraft to fly over the fire area. cal fire says it has stopped the expansion of the fire. but it could take several
more days to actually put it out and crews battling the washburn fire in yosemite national park are facing another hot, humid day fighting those flames. james stories live in studio now, and james's crews are doing whatever they can to keep the flames from damaging hundreds of giant sequoia trees. lots of concerns , considering this has been burning since thursday of last week. now there's a meeting scheduled at the oakhurst community center about 20 miles away from the center of that fire there. firefighters will answer questions and give people in the area and overall update on where they stand and getting the flames under control. let's show you the latest video of what the scene looks like taking overnight at this point. containment is still at 0% in the fire has now grown to more than 2000 acres more than 500. firefighters now are doing what they can to keep it from growing, but that seems to be a challenge. crews are dealing with the rugged terrain. and the many dead trees fueling the fire . one big concern is the threat to the mariposa grove that's home to more than 500 giant sequoia trees. it's threatening
sequoia trees and the mariposa grove is a historic grove of trees. that really has a lot of history in our national parks system. and when you see the trees, you you know that they can sustain fire. i mean, they've been around for more than 1000 years. to protect some of those largest trees. firefighters have a sprinkler system surrounding them. here. crews have a system in place to protect the grizzly giant. it's the second largest tree in yosemite. standing at about 209 ft, tall and one of the most photographed trees in the world . that community meeting that set to start tonight at seven o'clock. you have 70 park officials are still working on the details for a live stream of that meeting. and after a day of dangerous smoke, helicopters are now in the air again, so we'll soon get an update on whether any containment has been achieved. garcia james thank you , somebody. national park is more than 160 miles away from the south bay, but still we could start to feel and see some of the effects of the fire later
today. there was already near quality warning in place at the park visitors being told to reduce their physical exertion due to heavy smoke. now there's an air quality advisory here in the bay area, smoke from the washburn fire is drifting north . forecasters don't expect the offshore winds we had yesterday to continue today. this means the smoke could hover over the bay area. course we have you covered here on mornings onto you could find updates around the clock on the wildfires that are burning in our state when you had the ktvu .com/ wildfires. well there's been another drowning at lake berryessa, the napa county sheriff's office, says 18 year old zaire what to fairly evelio drowned in this middle creek day use area yesterday, the sheriff's office is fairly was standing on a log when he slipped into the water. and after the police officer was able to pull into shore and then off duty nurses tried to revive him, but he was later pronounced dead at the hospital. this was the third drowning at lake berryessa in two weeks. and that drowning at lake various happened on the same day, a
somber fundraiser was held in oakland came in response to another tragedy in the water there. ktvu andre senior live in studio with more on that story on the family. those men really need some help. right now. it was a fundraiser in the east bay organized by leaders of the guatemalan community here in the bay area this weekend. dozens of members of that community gathered to help the families of three men who drowned in the delta. they jumped into the water to try and rescue a young boy. the fundraiser was held yesterday to park in west oakland. the goal was to help pay the expensive sending the bodies of those three men back home to their families in guatemala, the daughter of one of the men who drowned attended the fundraiser. it's very important, you know the family and the religion come back and guatemala the men drowned in july 3rd while on a fishing trip near brandon island in the sacramento delta. they were among several men who jumped into the water to saving the eight year old boy. that boy was eventually rescued. oakland city
councilman noel gaia was among those who attended yesterday's fundraiser. guy who knew the three men who lived in the fruitvale district, the district that he represents. there were regular volunteers every saturday and every sunday morning from eight o'clock to 12 noon. clean the neighborhood, illegal dumping, working with the homeless encampments cleaning the schools, even and they were there. the loss of that community. being sure, organizers estimated will cost roughly $45,000 to transport all the victim's home for burials. these three men have been hailed as heroes for rushing to save that child. but safety experts say these drownings still serve as an important reminder for everyone hitting into the water this summer. they say, you should never swim alone, especially in areas where there are no lifeguards. safety experts say everyone should know their physical limitations while in the water and they stress alcohol use increases the danger. for anyone swimming or on a boat back to you. andre
thank you starting this week is going to cost travelers more to leave their cars at the long term parking lot at san francisco international airport has announced the daily maximum rate for long term parking there will increase from $18 to 25 on friday. that's a very big increase here. $25 a day is a lot of money to pay off. airport parking is a lot cheaper than that if you're willing to get that bit of extra time, but and you can't find cheaper if you look around. it seems like they everything has gone up. yeah even the uber drive like we didn't park we took uber, but even that was more expensive. sfo says the increase is due to the growing number of passengers who are now returning to the airport after the big slowdown and air travel during the beginning of the pandemic, what may soon become easier to figure out transfers between different area transit systems. the metropolitan transportation commission is spending $6 million to create a series of maps will be used by all the area transit agencies. the idea
is to make it easier for people to transfer between things like busses and bart, the first of the new signs are not expected to be installed until early 2024 . let's talk gas prices. we saw another drop in prices across the country this weekend, according to the text site gasbuddy nearly 7000 gas stations in the united states. are now selling gas for under $4 a gallon, not a single. one of them is here in the bay area, but that's still almost tripled the number from last week the nationwide average remains at $4.68 a gallon. that's down 13 cents from a week ago. 30 cents below where we were last month, let's focus on what's happening here at home in california, according to triple a. the statewide average is now $6.09 a gallon, however. you can find some locations selling gas for under $6 here in the bay area one week ago, the statewide average was $6.24 last month, it was 6 43. all right. time now is 709. everything is relative. right so we wanted a little bit cheaper, ali. you know, i think
anytime you go under that you know $6, mark $7 mark $5 mark. remember when there was like three something yeah, i remember when, during the pandemic when oil was trading for less than $0 a barrel was negative prices. but what a difference a couple of years can make. but you definitely don't want to be burning your gas if you're idling. on places like the bay bridge toll plaza, which we do see a lot of this morning because of a crash there. let's go to the maps. we can show you that this crash is just before the toll plaza. it is blocking one of the lanes, one of the far right lanes, and then there's heavy traffic. once you get onto the western spanner the eastern span of the bridge and bay bridge toll plaza, things inching along there, and we do also want to let people know about that earlier problem we mentioned on the peninsula this is we still have traffic being diverted. from north and 1012 southbound to 80 because of a crash that happened there
earlier this morning. so that's a closer look at that. and then if you look at the bottom right of your screen, there's the san mateo bridge. this bridge is a mess because of crash. that happened in the middle of that span in the westbound direction, still blocking two of the three westbound lanes, so if you're trying to get over to the peninsula from the east bay definitely take the dumbarton bridge instead. 7 11, let's go back to the desk. alright thanks , ali. well, children, new clues in the murder case of an oakley woman who went missing in january coming up. we'll tell you how new evidence could help investigators find her, and after a quick break the number of people getting hospitalized for covid in the bay area is rising. what's behind the increase and warnings of growing covid surge.

14 the number of people in bay area hospitals with covid has hit the highest point in five months. the state department of public health says. there are now 770 people hospitalized with covid in the bay area. that's similar to what we saw back in february, while the total number of new covid cases per day remains mostly steady, public health experts say they think many people are not reporting the results of their at home tests, leading to a large undercount of positive cases. across the country. doctors are warning of a growing covid surge fueled by the b a five oh macron sub variant and the summer travel season. cbc data show that new, more contagious variants are now the dominant
strain of covid in the united states, the very prompted new york city health leaders to once again recommend facemasks indoors and in large crowds outdoors. almost in a place where the vaccine is still working, but it's not working as well as it used to be. so we need to go back to layering our protection we're observing now is an increase the number of cases and it just goes to show you that the covid not going away. researchers are working on new forms of vaccine boosters that would be more focused on omicron variants, but they likely won't be ready until the fall. parents in the bay area are vaccinating their young children faster than the rest of the country. some bay area counties say in the three weeks since the shots became available for children under five they've seen between 10 and 15% of babies in dollars, getting their first shot now, while that is lower than some health officials had hoped, for, it is much higher than the 1.5% of young children nationwide. who have gotten their first shot. in some
bay area counties like napa and sonoma, though they are still in single digit percentages in that age group. and president biden is now considering a new option in his battle against the supreme court decision that overturned roe versus wade. the president says he may declare abortion access a public health emergency. and that would free up federal funds to go to expand reproduction health services in all. 50. us states. president biden discussed this proposal with reporters during a brief break from his sunday bike ride. the president says his fight for abortion rights will not end there. my ultimate goal is to reinstate roe v. wade is a national law by passing it in the united states congress and i'll sign it the moment that happens. president biden also called on abortion rights demonstrators to continue their marches and rallies in cities across the country happening today, king tide returned to the bay area, they're expected to cause coastal flooding and parking lots, sidewalks and trails in many low lying areas. king tide events, usually last just a day or two. the national weather service says the latest

northbound to one. there's a little bit of slowing around tully road, but no major accidents to tell you about. you can see in this live picture to 80 north and south. dont traffic moving smoothly a little heavier in those directions past downtown. we do have some sluggish traffic northbound 8 80 past the coliseum and that may be because of an earlier crash. at 23rd street, but it's been cleared. still stop and go traffic getting towards the mcarthur maze and i was going to show the highway four camera here, but we'll skip over that, since it's a nice picture of the estuary. you can see how clear it is out there in the inland parts of the bay area, but not the case at the golden gate bridge is just socked in with fog. in fact, chp put out an advisory about some of the visibility just at this bridge. let's bring in rosemary oroczo do we have rosemary oroczo interesting weather conditions out there very foggy at the golden gate bridge, but nowhere else. yes we're summer's in full bloom. right ali, we've got what
we typically see along the coastline. just a lot of drizzle and patchy fog and thick fog in some areas and then our inland cities enjoying the sunny skies a little bit of haze out there for today. last check air quality is still good, although we've been talking about that possibility of some smoke drifting our way from the fire burning in yosemite so we could see some today, especially for the inner east bay. perhaps the north bay. if you see that, hes you'll know where it's coming from. we also have the advisory that garcia in just a moment ago , the coastal flood advisory that begins this evening goes until midnight. you can see where it is that shade of green includes all of our bayside communities and say, francisco as well as into the north bay. so those low lying areas, parking lots, parks, things like that the roadways will be susceptible to some low lying flooding. we do have storm tracker to here to show you just a week onshore breeze. they're moving through. it looks like the golden gate and into the bay, and that's pretty much
where it stops or inland cities. will not get you any relief from the onshore breeze today. meanwhile there's that flow coming from this direction, and that's what could be pushing some of that smoke in our area into our area. visibility in and around the bay area is good until you get to the coastline half moon bay reporting zero visibility at this hour so long highway one. closer to the coast . you're going to find patchy drizzle as well as the possibility of some very low lying fog. the onshore breeze through fairfield only 13 mph, so not strong enough to help us out today and we are calm. santa rosa novato napa conquered, all reporting calm conditions, temperatures are warmer in most areas, especially inland fairfield 11 degrees warmer right now compared to 24 hours ago. and livermore up by eight deliver more 66 walnut creek at 70 into the north bay 56 in novato, 56 in san francisco. around the bay low sixties and hayward low sixties palo alto. your future cast here will show

you're on the span, it's very stop and go from there. taking a look at the san mateo bridge. this has gone from bad to worse in the last hour earlier crash involving a big rig mid span has blocked two of the three lanes. tow trucks are having a hard time getting access to this and clearing the scene. so if you need to get over to the peninsula from the east bay definitely take the dumbarton bridge because that bridge looks pretty clear. this bridge is problem free is the richmond san rafael bridge toll plaza. no issues getting over to marin county from here, 7 32. let's go back to the desk. okay. thanks, sally. well the report by the international investigative journalist shows services co. based uber used technology to fend off government investigations hired lobbyists to evade taxi regulations and avoid paying taxes all over the world. that investigation found uber secretly asked politicians for favors used offshore accounts to hide money and discuss the benefits of its drivers being violently attacked to gain public sympathy. the
taxi alliance says all of that put users in danger and gave uber and unfair advantage they launched, uh, charging passengers for rides without any um. legal oversight whatsoever in terms of insurance, passenger safety drivers screening anything so their launch was illegal. and they were later. sort of, um, legitimized by the california public utilities commission. uber says it's made many changes and released a statement saying quote we have not and will not make its uses for past behavior that is clearly not in line with our present values instead. we asked the public to judge us by what we've done over the last five years and what we will do in the years to come. 7 33 here. twitter stock is down about 7% this morning after elon musk announced he is pulling out of his $44 billion takeover of that
