4:00 pm
commute traffic commercial traffic of freight distribution . uh so it's tied in with the bay area's mobility and the bay area's economy. ah, it is. literally like the aorta. from ktvu. fox two news. this is the fourth and that fire created dangerous conditions that one of the areas most critical interchanges where three freeways converge. welcome to the four i'm jana katsuyama alex savage. this is not the first time that encampment has gone up in flames. ktvu tom vacar is joining us now live from the newsroom. with the details on today's firefight. tom was further say that today we dodged a fire bullet that 15 years ago hit the maze and disabled it for weeks. at 10 20 am oakland fire responded to what would become a
4:01 pm
second alarm fire with mutual aid from alameda city and alameda county. an unused wooden trestle caught fire after a homeless encampment, fire spread to it and other vehicles. the creosote soaked timbers gave off seriously toxic, thick black smoke so much smoke. caltrans closed much of the maze to avoid crashes that created a monumental traffic jam. underneath a dangerous inferno threatened. the firefighters have cars. we have rvs we have a ton of combustible materials, hazardous materials. we've had several explosions since we've been here working on this incident. it gave off a lot of heat, some of which bathes the underside of the mazes, interstate 80 steel and concrete structure. we've had numerous fires here at this location, and we every time we have concerns about the structural integrity inspectors immediately examined it to make sure it could be reopened for the evening
4:02 pm
commute. and it was pronounced safer vehicles and reopened. the metropolitan transportation commission says it is the heart of its system is essential for commute traffic, commercial traffic freight distribution. uh so it's tied in with the bay area's mobility and the bay area's economy. uh it is literally like the aorta. additional inspections will take place, so that's ongoing right now. so we'll know in the next day, if not tomorrow, if there's been any damage, but i don't think so. the homeless encampment was already being dismantled here, but such encampments are often found under freeways everywhere, and we're worried about people being on the right away underneath the freeway where anything could happen. so far, no injuries reported, but the two story high trestle was serving as a kind of a tree house. that people were
4:03 pm
living in, so we'll have to see what happens with that reporting live. tom baker, ktvu fox two news, tom, is there the possibility that when you have fire after fire at that same location, and you have the heat and the flames on on that overpass that it can take a take a toll over time on its structural integrity. yeah i can . but i don't think this area has been hit that many times by those big fires the difference between the gasoline fire that happened 15 years ago was that that part of the freeway that collapsed literally was baking under there for hours as this gasoline kept burning and burning burning this was much farther away from the structure, and the other part of it is that there was enough space there that a lot of the heat dissipated but always have to be careful, which is why the ongoing inspections are ongoing . absolutely have to be cautious . alright, tom vacar live in the newsroom. thank you, tom. san francisco's police department is offering new insight into how it would use surveillance camera footage if the board of
4:04 pm
supervisors approved a new proposal to expand access to private cameras. ktvu christian captain joins us now live from union square. in the city with more on the plan, christian yes , san francisco police say when it comes to accessing privately owned security cameras like those here at union square, they have guardrails in place to protect civil liberties. but some people say they still have some reservations. san francisco police department is now outlining plans to the board of supervisors for how and when it would try to gain live access to private surveillance cameras. the chief saying, being able to monitor crime in real time would allow police to respond more quickly. if we can tap into that information, we can be more efficient, more effective and more surgical in terms of the people who are involved in activity, making sure we address those people and not others who are not involved in any activities. the department says it's been working on developing a system to protect civil liberties, asking on a case by case basis for permission to access private cameras on an as needed basis. the department
4:05 pm
also says it's working on guidelines to make sure video isn't stored or use it sometime later down the road unless it can be tied to a specific incident. we definitely understand that there is a balance between what we need to do in the city. with the use of surveillance, private surveillance cameras and the constitutional privacy that that we enjoy in this in this country . the electronic frontier foundation is one of the groups expressing concerns, saying the current proposal still does not go far enough to protect people from routine invasions of privacy. and we're really concerned about the impacts, um, to first run rights to the privacy rights of regular san francisco's just going about their regular the everyday lives , um, and what this means for particularly marginalized communities. union square is one of the areas with a robust camera network. the department may ask to access the union square alliance, saying it wants to work with the department to make sure access is granted to its network of cameras to prevent mob style robberies, but with the understanding that
4:06 pm
officers would not abuse the privilege, this is for keeping san franciscans safe. this is for keeping visitors who visit our beautiful city safe and really being mindful. there's a balance here. we want to make sure that this is under certain circumstances heightened circumstances. and again, this would pertain to police act ability to access live cameras that are privately owned throughout the city of san francisco, the committee set to revisit the issue of access to those cameras. next week. the board of supervisors could re address that issue or could address that issue. by the end of the month. we're live in san francisco, christien kafton ktvu , fox, two news and christian real quickly will there be any opportunity for the public to have any public input into this issue? yeah, there was public input today. as a matter of fact , there is a next time that goes before the committee. there's always that opportunity for the public to offer their input on how they feel about this issue going forward. alright thanks so much christien kafton live for
4:07 pm
us in the city tonight. police in richmond are looking for the vandals, who they say broke in and damaged several schools. total of four campuses were hit over the weekend. here's the damage at lincoln elementary school on 29th street. just about every classroom was damaged. investigators think the intruders use metal baseball bats to damage school equipment and break double paned windows in those classrooms. paint and school supplies were thrown into the hallways. the other schools vandalized or greenwood academy , nystrom elementary and richmond charter academy, another school that was targeted last week. police say they think that all were hit by a large group of people. the schools are very close in proximity right now. the investigation is stillw the assailants are getting around if they're walking or if they're biking, or they're driving to these different schools to burglarize and vandalized them. but we're still investigating that and we should know. soon it could be a large
4:08 pm
group that's involved. but like i said, we're still investigating and we should know something soon. investigators right now are looking at surveillance video from some of those schools to see if the vandals can be identified and officials are taking inventory to see what if anything, might have been stolen. now to yosemite, where fire crews are trying to protect a grove of ancient sequoias. the washburn fire is threatening the mariposa grove, which has more than 500 trees. wana region on the south side of the park is close to the public. all other areas are still open. firefighters right now are hoping to keep the fire away from the northern side of the park. some of the smoke already is showing up in the bay area, prompting a one day air quality advisory. some of that smoke came over into the bay area. it looks really bad. we're expecting to look pretty bad today, but we want people to know that it is higher up in the elevation and because we are expecting some of the patterns to actually change, we're not going to extend the air quality
4:09 pm
advisory. beyond today. and this afternoon, officials say the fire is now 25% contained. it has burned more than 2300 acres . all right, for more on this firefight. we're joined now by stanley berkowitz, who is a u. s. forest service. public information. officer stanley. we appreciate you taking the time joining us by phone this afternoon to talk about the situation in yosemite. let's let's talk first about the effort to protect these giant sequoias. we know the fire. has moved into the mariposa grove. we understand sprinklers are being used to try to dampen the ground around those trees. what are the other efforts that are being taken to trying to protect the create at the trees? and are you confident you can do that? yes i am feeling pretty confident. aside from the sprinklers that you mentioned which are around the clock. um they have also cleared off. adjacent fuels that are on the ground that would allow fire to climb the trees. and also
4:10 pm
there's increased manpower in that area as well, and the line has been strengthened as well. and so it's looking pretty good. we have to our advantage. um, of the three three trigger points that we worry about. in the wild land fire world increased temperatures, increased winds and when humidities dropped low right now we're enjoying. low end so the fire is staying on the ground and for at least the next 2 to 3 days. we don't see a big increase in wind. and one of the things that we often hear about sequoia trees. these giant sequoias is that they have their tall and they also have very thick bark that tends to make them more resistant to wildfires . are you finding that to be true holding true in this particular fire, or are you finding that they are vulnerable as we are seeing larger fires more destructive fires that have been erupting? recently. and yes
4:11 pm
, all of those factors as well as extended periods of drought. and so i think that these are national treasures, and it's a priority to protect them. as it is any structure or any life, but the trees have a priority to be protected. and so there, um i'm feeling confident. and they do have a thick skin. so to speak. however it can burn and so, um, it's one of those things where, um, if in nature and they might burn up, but i think that they're going to be protected. they offer a lot of value to a lot of people and their world famous. yeah cruz taking numerous steps to try to protect those those very important trees. let's talk about the impact. this is having more broadly on your 70 national park here. we're sitting in the middle of summer. obviously a very busy time for the park. the south entrance to yosemite we know is still closed down as fire crews work in that area. how is this affecting visitors
4:12 pm
to yosemite overall? and what's the impact of all that smoke on people in the park? yeah, the smoke issue is bigger than most people might realize. people often times don't understand or realize firsthand the effects of smoke until you're in it. you can see it from a distance and it looks dirty, but it's hard to breathe and it's harmful to people with conditions that might be exacerbated by it. and one thing to think about is, um well wanna was evacuated. and 1600. people were evacuated and only about 150. i believe actually reside in wawona, so that means that the rest were tourists. and so that's that, you know, the local economies take a hit, and that's one of the things we consider the team that comes in to fight fire just to get get the fire out and get the community back up and running. and stanley real quickly. you mentioned the evacuations that we want a
4:13 pm
campground and also that you're getting a little bit of a break right now. with the lower winds. what is the plan right now? moving forward into the evening ? and how much do you expect to be able to increase that containment level? so in the areas they're safe for firefighters to get into that will. the fire will be worked. 24 7 and, um more resources are on the way. quite a few more crews and engines are on the way, so basically will be stepping up the manpower, people power on the fires on the edges of the fire and the fire lines. are being straightened out so that they're more easily. um monitored and protected. and then what will happen is the fire is extinguished and to the point of being cold, deeper and deeper off of the edge into the fire. just to protect it, if when did come up? um, as many people might remember from from the fire it softly ka, who last year you know you can have
4:14 pm
firebrands or embers fly to three miles, and right now we don't have any of those issues. we have small spot fires that are just a few feet outside of the line, and so um the important thing is to get the fire away from the edge as much as possible and to get as much black line as possible. so yeah, there are crews working around the clock. and to strengthen the line and to build more lines. hoping they can get this fire fully under control as soon as possible. we appreciate the update this afternoon, stanley berkovitz, u. s forest service public information officer, joining us on the phone with an update. thank you, stanley. all right. thank you. well in other news, president biden is considering a new move to protect abortion rights. what a national public health emergency means for states, which would have already banned the procedure and is like tahoe losing its famous clarity will talk with an environmental expert about why the water is looking more and more murky this

4:20 pm
causing them liking this, it's sort of very fine particles that get washed in. uh by rain and my storms and in 2021, probably some particles that came in from wildfire smoke from the couple of months of smoke inundation in the basin. also there's a lot more dirt and debris and dust that is apparently being kicked up by car traffic. so what kind of impact does all the tourism at lake tahoe have on the lakes? clarity? you know, that's yeah, it's a two edged saw people, people welcome tourism. it's an essential part of the economy here, but people do have an impact in everything they do, whether it's dust being being stirred up by driving on the shoulders or hiking and even the microplastics the breakdown from people's use of plastics at the lake. we all have an impact and actually the human part of the
4:21 pm
equation, something we can do. things about which is which is positive. i was going to ask you. i mean, are there steps that can be taken to try to reverse this trend to improve the clarity of the water? and what? what's the role that that all of us play? especially all of us who visit the lake? yeah well, i mean, that's been the efforts by multiple agencies up here at something that's called the environmental improvement program and it's going on going and if you look at the rate at which clarity has been declining over the years of ah, who actually slowed down considerably. so i think really what we all have to think about it sort of minimizing our footprint. whether it's ridesharing whether it's getting on a bike rather than driving a car. all these things. have a really positive influence unknown late, alright, finally here, you know what do you think the chances are that lake tahoe ever returns to sort of what we
4:22 pm
what? we knew it to be that crystal blue water. wow i'm i'm an optimist. i think we'll get there. but we have a lot of work to do. so that's that's just do it. yeah it's good, and it's going to take a community wide global effort to try to make that happen here. but it's so important to do appreciate your research. and your time. thank you so much for doing it. thank you. bye bye. take care. all right. i like that guy. he's right. what do we got to do? whatever we gotta do, let's just do it. and it's interesting to how it's about lake tahoe and not just like tahoe, but the bay of the ocean. how the waterways are impacted by the air quality , right? we're talking about what we've been talking about. wild fire smoke in particular that they particularly precipitates out into the waters and changes. um you know, ph levels and changes clarity. it's all it's all tied together. so what he said was absolutely right. i mean, get on your bike . go for a walk. get out of the cars. i mean that stuff. that's where we're going. i mean, don't get me started, right? but as interesting, okay, so around
4:23 pm
here, we've been pretty warm yesterday. very warm today. very warm as well. not quite as warm as yesterday. but you can see where we're dealing with all the heat is kind of down here in the southwest, and it's been pushing out this way. so we're seeing some significant heat around the bay area, but mainly in the central valley. what's going to happen as we head into tomorrow is that the high pressure is going to weaken this high pressure, and as it weakens that inversion is going to go the other way. it's going to lift out. and when it lifts out, we're going to see that fog, which now is tight, right? shallow and version, right? you can almost you can almost. you know, when you talk about inversions, it sounds like what's an inversion. it's probably confusing, sometimes. but that's all it is. that's an inversion right there. top of that fog down to the bottom, which looks like it's about 607 100 ft. something like that. so that's the inversion of the top of this. this fog deckchair and so that inversion is going to stretch out as we go into tomorrow. um and on on wednesday as well into thursday in that causes down that helps the

two days is set to kick off tomorrow. it's become one of the biggest shopping holidays of the year, and it has turned into an opportunity as well for scammers who are trying to take advantage of eager customers. joining us now is david richardson, cybersecurity expert and vice president of product management at lookout, david. thank you for joining us this afternoon. thank you for having me. so there have been some reports that phishing scams are increasing, leading up to amazon prime day. what to shoppers need to look out for over the next few days. yes so it's important to know that just because you receive an email or a text message claiming to be from somebody, it doesn't mean that it is from you know who it says it's from. it could really be from anyone attackers are able to easily impersonate emails or text messages coming from any source, so you should really go directly to the source like amazon .com. if you want to find out what's on sale for prime day and not trust anything that arrives in your inbox or as a text message to you. and is there anything particular about
4:42 pm
amazon prime day that makes it such a magnet for scammers? any time that you have these masks shopping events, it's an opportunity for an attacker to go a and predict what kind of behavior someone has. so for example, two days after prime day or two days after black friday if i send you and email or text message, saying your package was unable to be delivered, probably you are waiting for a package. so that's a extra opportunity for you to go click on that link. try to figure out why couldn't my package be delivered? and i'm basically as an attacker and guessing what behavior you're in. you know that you purchased something in the last day or two and because i'm guessing accurately, you're more likely to fall for that scam. and we've also been hearing that there are even people who are taking out web pages. you rls that have amazon as part of the u. r l what are some of the proactive steps that people can take to try and protect themselves from
4:43 pm
cybercriminals? yes so a couple of things one. you can obviously use the security product, like, look out to help protect you from phishing attacks and scams . but also you should always double check that you are l that you're going to. you should really go to an authoritative source code like directly to amazon dot com. don't click on a link that you received from from anywhere else. um and when you're shopping, you know you should take, uh, you should take extra precautions, like, use a credit card so that you could contest the charges you needed to or even better use something like paypal or apple pay where they can generate one time use tokens so that even if an attacker manages to get your credit card information this way. they're not able to repeatedly charger part and one quick final question. if somebody does fall victim to a scam, what are the top things that they should do? if that happens? yes so the number one thing that you need to do. check your credit card statement. look not just at the credit card that

you used. look at all your credit card statements. make sure that you recognize all of these transactions. if you have an unauthorized transaction reach out to your credit card company if you enter your user name or password into a site that you shouldn't have. you need to change that password and this is really important. you need to change. everywhere that you use that password, so don't just change it at amazon, but change it anywhere if you you know, you shouldn't reuse passwords. we all know we shouldn't reuse passwords. but if you do you need to change it everywhere that you use that password because attackers will try to use that pastor to get into all of your accounts, not just your amazon account. okay very important information. thank you so much. david with lookout cybersecurity expert leading up to amazon prime day. we appreciate your taking some time. thank you for having me. alright i hope you have a nice day. today was beautiful out there the marine layer still pretty tight, but i mentioned this last time that the, um marine layer is going to stretch out and that starts tomorrow. that's cooler weather coming our way. you know what? it helps a
4:45 pm
lot and you know this is fire. danger is going to help a lot up in the washburn. fire up in yosemite. you're increasing the humidities. you've got a little bit of wind but not aggressive, lower temperatures. that's the big story tomorrow. today. we had a hot day like yesterday. very similar. yesterday is a little bit warmer. actually we had a couple of low 100 did have a couple of low one hundred's today. there's the fog. wow that's something you can't see a little bit that smoke right. if you look hard that smoke from the washburn fire showed up in the east bay valleys this morning early, the low level flow is onshore. see how the fog is going from left to right. that's onshore. but up in the upper elevations we had this morning, especially we had the upper elevations being above 5000 ft. we had winds blowing this way. so that's how that smoke ends up getting in here, right? so how do you have you just wind shear. you have different levels, um different levels of winds and wind speeds in different directions. so there's the fog along the coast. there's a bunch of it love seeing it. um it's squishing through the gate. that's how you know the inversion is still pretty shallow. when i say it's
4:46 pm
squishing through the gate when you see that finger like that, right, just kinda gets pushed through. that's the high pressure overhead, squishing down and just squeezing that thing that fog bank through the gate tomorrow. it's a different deal. different animal because tomorrow the fog is going to be or the marine there is going to be deeper. there's not gonna be squishing at all, man. it's just going to go straight up over the hills into the inland bay valleys into the central valley and offer us all a pretty significant, massive, cool down cold. it's just going to get back into the eighties, which is great. it's the perfect pattern really, too hot days like current temperatures, and then you get a cool off. that's kind of we've been seeing that we've been seeing that pretty much this whole spring and summer when we get a couple of hot ones, and then it kills cools off. we haven't been seeing. five or six days in a row of 100, plus temperatures in the inland day valleys we have in sacramento but not in our island day valleys. so here's the tomorrow morning forecast and you can see the fog. see that the footprint of fog well, inland tomorrow there's a bunch of it. nears the afternoon and then it does it again on wednesday morning with a further
4:47 pm
look at the intrusion on wednesday. that model says they want to put fog all the way up into sacramento. of course, that is increased humidities. increased humidity is lower temperatures, good stuff, so i was smiling back to the fog forecast. we're going to see more fog tomorrow and deeper and further inland than we did today. there's the footprint for the morning. birds back. yellows are seventies oranges or eighties. big difference for tomorrow's temperature footprint . there are still red nineties, but they're further east bay area forecast numbers are going to be generally on the cooler side. we're going to find temperatures. mostly in the eighties. i just showed you is actually from yesterday. so this is the map. you want to look at the five day and you can see tuesday cooler wednesday mild and stays that way through thursday. see you back here in a little bit. looks nice, bill. thank you. suburb camp with a focus on stem coming up here on the four the special program underway for underrepresented students of color here in the bay area and coming up at five a canine, sinking its teeth into a woman who was walking her dog in

program. is a partnership between nonprofit, the social engineering project and the stanford linear accelerator center. the idea to give underrepresented students of color access to stem activities and fuel a future in the field in this voices for change segment, or greg lee spoke to social engineering project founder kevin nicholls. happy 10th edition of this program. just tell me how good it feels to be back in person with these students. it's a game changer
4:51 pm
doing math and science virtually is doable. we've proven but it's not ideal and being able to have hands on interaction with things and be around real people. and although were masked and vaccinated, etcetera. we're still at least in person and doing this in person makes a very big difference. kevin the very premise of this week long program and the social engineering project, which you founded, is to help students that may not have access to stem have access to it. so what does it mean to you to provide this opportunity to minority students ? females? i mean, how how great does that feel? or it's wonderful, and i have to thank dr brian brown, who was the founder of this program. we went to high school together, and he just fell in love with science, and he thought that if he exposes, uh, black and brown students, particularly to this type of subject matter and give
4:52 pm
them, uh the opportunity to connect with it. part of part of the problem is what science is hard to really relate to it, so if you can learn it from a cultural relevant perspective, you're more inclined to engage with it. stick with it and eventually want to go to college and majoring something like that , uh, and do a career with that later on in life, you're seeing real life. businesses that actually looked like them engineers that look like them out here doing things that are changing the world. i mean, here at slack, they're researching everything from you know how to, uh, you know, cure the coronavirus or, you know, looking at what these lasers, all kinds of medical and biotech related issues that they're working on to try to solve. history is being made with new elements on the periodic table being created here. so being in a place like this and then
4:53 pm
actually able to see themselves as scientists is phenomenal. earlier today we put lab coats on the students gave themuh goggles and transform them into real life scientists so they can actually know what it feels like to be here and be able to say, hey, i can do it. others have done it. what is the overarching message to the students that come from communities that are underrepresented, especially in the stem field about the fact that they can do anything? well ironic part about it is that not only can they do anything they set their mind to. they just never know what they're going to be able to accomplish and what they're going to be able to achieve. i will do a workshop for these students towards the end of week called the personal brand called you. right teach the students how to leverage donnelly their personal grand and their own network with leverage their parents networks going forward. we intend to give these including internships, you

boards ever assembled. they couldn't they couldn't run a lemonade stand. what i thought what i believe is going to happen is they are going to do this masquerade of saying that they're going to sue to get elon musk to follow through with his original offer. they are going to fail. must claims twitter was deceitful and failed to provide data on how many of their users were made up of fake accounts. twitter responded, saying they provided must with information that shows spam accounts make up less than 5% of its monetize double daily active users. it will now be up to the courts to determine if musk will be forced to buy a company he doesn't want any more must tremendously, you know, intelligent, successful individual, but in this case, he simply like icarus has flown a little bit too close to the sun with those waxwings. if you look back so much of this big meal, in my opinion was emotional. it was the autistic ally think it was politically motivated. twitter shares falling since elon musk's announcement, wiping
