to stop it. good morning, everybody. it's thursday, october 22nd. before we get to those stories we want to check in with mike and this red flag warning. mike? >> all right. thank you. welcome back. hi, jobina. let's talk about the red flag warning and what you will see is it encompasses some areas that are not normally in a red flag warning. places like daly city, pacifica, half moon bay. the peninsula coast, santa cruz mountains, the east bay hills, the dabo range, the east bay valleys, north bay mountains, historically dry fuels out there, gusty winds and lowering humidity are the reasons why we'll have issues today and tomorrow morning. right now fog along the coast. it hasn't made it into the bay. temperatures today milder. 60s at the coast. 70s around the bay. 80s inland. >> mike, thank you. happening now, force the blackouts for horse tos pg&e cu. they are not as widespread as we once feared they would be.

6:02 am
customers. >> since the fires, basically since the 28th, we've pretty much only worked two days a week because they keep turning off the power. it's unfortunate not to have a full paycheck for a full week period. that's why we're doing the best we can to keep it open. >> residents tell us they understand the need to be proactive against the start of wildfires, but they say it's tough dealing with these blackouts. saying what is really annoying is paying for the gas for these generators and listening to the constant hum of them all over town. pg&e saying that these power shutoffs are necessary, a proactive measure to keep their equipment from sparking wildfires. reporting live in calistoga, amy hollyfield, abc7 news. >> we're glad to see the lights are on where you are. thank you. you can find power outage resources on our website including the best way to keep your phone charged with electricity, head to

6:11 am
benefits to two people and a marriage. one local scholar is not surprised by what the pope said. >> throughout the seven years he's been pope, he has used language that is more inclusive, more welcoming of gay and lesbian persons. >> pope francis shared his thoughts on a spanish language documentary which premiered at the rome film festival. a private school in marin county closing campus again. the dangerous gatherings apparently taking place among students. and the new way kids can tell santa what they want for christmas in the age of social distancing. the website offering video chats with santa from the north pole. as we head to break, a live look outside. not from the north pole but

6:14 am
which are meant to protect them. uber and lyft aren't even required to investigate sexual harassment claims. i agree with the la times: no on 22. uber and lyft want all the power. so, show them the real power is you. vote no on prop 22.

6:31 am
all the time driving us all nuts. a lot of people preparing for power outages. the good news, it doesn't appear as many people are out of power as we expected. mike is tracking that fire danger that is prompting pg&e to cut electricity. good morning on this thursday, october 22nd. we rarely have good news that fewer people are out of power. so we're happy to report that. mike, what is the trouble that we face today? >> well, i have a little bit of good news there also. so far our critical fire conditions have been slow to develop. when they do develop it looks like they will be weaker than what we originally thought. we have the red flag warning and high fire danger for places like daly city, pacifica, half moon bay as the peninsula coast is added to the santa cruz mountains, the diablo range and the north bay mountains. what is fueling this one are historically dry fuels.
6:32 am
even if the winds and humidity don't drop, we have that to contend with. 46 at mount diablo right now are the winds. humidity is around 20% to 30%, which is a bit kumasi? happening now, people across the bay area are wondering if their power will go off today. this is pg&e's outage map. you can see few purple triangles now. that indicates where people are losing power. we spoke with pg&e, they say many outages they planned for this morning have not happened. abc7 news reporter amy hollyfield is live in calistoga with what's going on there. >> they are still on. i talked to pg&e and they said weather is dynamic. they're monitoring it.
6:33 am
when they can delay turning off the power they will. that's what they have done this morning. lights are still on here in calistoga. the weather is cool. there's no wind. even though they had warned that the power would go off between 4:00 and 6:00 this morning, that has not happened. residents here are very good at preparing and dealing for these power outages. they have been through this before. most people have generators. many made a trip to the gas station yesterday to fill up their cans so they could power those generators if they needed to. as much as they appreciate having power, there is a side effect to using these generators that people say is tough to get used to. >> generators are very loud and they smell bad. >> what wears you down is the sound. my generator, we can only run a 50-foot cord off of it. so we put it between the two houses that we run, and it just drives you nuts. that's all you hear.
6:34 am
>> restaurants are getting savvy at dealing with these power outages. q707 local has generators and a tent set up outside so they can keep cooking saying they can't afford to be shut down every time the power is shut off. pg&e says the power outages are necessary during dry, hot weather so power equipment won't spark wildfires. right now the weather is cooperating. very cool here this morning. reporting live in calistoga, amy hollyfield, abc7 news. you can find power outage resources on our website including how you can prepare right now if you're expecting the lights to go off. head to federal investigators have concluded that iran and russia are working to influence the presidential election. >> these actions are desperate
6:35 am
attempts by desperate adversaries. >> they say iran and russia have obtained voter vfginformation. investigators say iran has sent spoof emails to some voters designed to intimidate, insight unrest and damage president trump. the agencies didn't elaborate how the voter information was obtained. >> our election systems are resilient. you can be confident your votes are secure. >> a spokesman for the iranian mission to the united nations has denied these accusations. breaking news. the senate judiciary just voted to send amy coney barrett's supreme court nomination to the full senate. the democrats this morning decided not to show up. the vote this morning comes just hours before president trump and joe biden face off for their second and last presidential debate. jobina fortson joins us now for a preview. >> yes. tonight's 90-minute prime time event is 12 days before the
6:36 am
election. here's a live look outside the debate hall right now. you can see the area where the debate is happening, it's happening at belmont university. following the constant interruptions in the last debate, organizers announced this time they will mute the candidates microphones during the opponent's two-minute initial responses. >> i think there should be more -- more limitations on us not interrupting one other. >> i think the mute is very unfair. >> president trump says he has done little in the way of formal preparation for tonight's debate spending this week on the campaign trail. he called interviews with the press debate prep. biden has been off the campaign trail the last couple of days spending time in delaware to get ready. you can watch president trump and joe biden go head to head tonight in nashville. the debate begins at 6:00 on abc7. happening today, people will be coming together to watch the presidential debate amid the pandemic in san francisco.
6:37 am
they're doing this safely by having a drive-in debate watch party. it will be held at ft. mason. this is where they held those drive-in movie nights over the summer. the watch party is being hosted by manny's, a restaurant and ca cafe. organizers believe it's the first ever drive-in debate in san francisco. tickets cost $35 to $55. you have to order them online in advance. if you have a twitter account you will receive a prompt on your home timeline today encouraging you to vote early. the message will go to all twitter users in the u.s. it comes with information showing voting information for every state. nine out of ten u.s. twitter users say they are registered to vote and they do plan on voting. two-thirds of them have already voted or plan to do so before the election. still ahead, breonna taylor's boyfriend accuses the police of lying. what he says actually happened the night she was killed.
6:38 am
and a live look at the big board at the new york stock exchange. we're up about 58 points. another update on how the markets are doing next. and usps looking to hire essential workers. jobina will show us some of the job openings available. >> first we want to check in with mike for a look at our forecast. hey, mike. >> hey, kumasi, reggie. hi, everybody. thanks for joining us this morning. neighborhood temperatures in san francisco. 50 in ocean beach, that's the cool spot. a little bit of fog to your south. 57 and clear conditions over potrero hill. the rest of us in the low to mid 50s, except fairfield, 60 degrees there. still waiting for those gusty winds to develop. only about 8 miles per hour right now. if you're commuting this morning, the coastal fog is the only issue. it will be cool to mild, so grab
6:39 am
your coat as you head home. breezy at times if you're out on the water. we're high across the north bay, around solano and napa counties with highs extending into the east bay hills and trying to slide down into the diablo range. heading through the morning and the afternoon, the high goes away. the high shows up, even that goes away for a while as we head into the evening hours. overnight the best chance of critical fire conditions will be in the north bay. by the time we get to 8:00 tomorrow morning, even that starts to taper. here's what will happen. look at these winds. just exploding, if you will, sunday night. look at that. this is not in the hills. this is going to be down where the rest of us live. in the hills they'll be faster. we have critical fire conditions. our strongest event possibly of the season coming at us sunday night into monday. we'll keep an eye on that. for now, let's get over to jobina and talk about the morning commute. hopefully it's moving that quickly also. jobina? >> for the most part, yes.
6:40 am
we had this stalled car along the peninsula that turned into a crash. i want to take you to this area on the map. another slowdown that we're seeing as a result of road construction that wrapped up earlier. so as you approach this stretch northbound in between belmont and san mateo on 101, right as you're kind of seeing that approach to the san mateo bridge, there's a stalled car, it turned into a crash. hopefully police can get that out of the way quickly. moving over to san lorenzo and hayward, really slow there, 28 miles per hour due to road construction. a live look showing you the bay bridge toll plaza, metering light metering lights came on at 6:02. big backup to the maze. live look showing you the san mateo br
