time of year. definitely a lot warmer and in addition to the near record highs that we might see again today, we're also tracking a couple of changes. the dangerous surf continues. i want to get to that in a second. 46 degrees in san jose. another mild morning to our overall bay area start, 47 degrees in hayward. oakland 52 right now. palo alto 54, and there is a new high surf advisory so we had one yesterday that was allowed to expire into the evening but the dangerous surf continues. this one is going to expire 3:00 p.m. tomorrow, which means dangerous coastlines and strong rip currents and dangerous sneaker waves. please be careful. it will be a nice, sunny, day, coming up.d to the coast, take a >> thanks so much. a 4.2 magnitude earthquake centered more than 50 miles south of the bay area rocked parts of our region and this morning, we're learning how widespread the shaking was.
that trembler hit just after 8:00 last night, the 4.2 was centered near the community of aromas in monterey county, south of gilroy, east of watsonville. dr. lucy jones, a renowned seismologist tweeted it was centered just a few miles from the san andreas fault. "today in the bay's" pete suratos reports for us from gilroy last night. >> reporter: this is sam cayas, owns a liquor store off of church street in the city of gilroy. he definitely felt the earthquake. nothing fell off the shelves, there wasn't any damage to the store. there hasn't been any damage reported so far at least in this area, but here he is in his own words describing the moment he realized that an earthquake might be taking place. >> suddenly, bang, you know, the noise came up like a bang, and then i thought some truck, accident happened and then suddenly the bottles moving and makes a sound, ting, ting, and i
thought there was an earthquake. i ran away. i thought it would fall down from the roof so i just ran out. >> reporter: while sam said this earthquake was a bit scary, he said he did experience a bigger earthquake back in his hometown of nepal, he said it was a 9.7 earthquake, but still nonetheless, tonight's earthquake definitely caught his attention. in gilroy, pete suratos, "nbc bay area news." dr. angela chung with the berkeley seismological laboratory says there's no way to tell whether this quake is indicative of the big one. >> we really have no idea when that next big earthquake will occur and just because there are earthquakes happening dunt's necessarily mean there will be a bigger one. there is a chance there may be a larger earthquake that comes after these earthquakes. the best thing question tell people is to use this as a reminder to get prepared for the next big earthquake. >> and with that reminder, make a plan with your family, including where you would meet in case you're separated and make sure that you're stocked
with emergency supplies. for the very latest on this story and others, you can go to nbcbayarea.com at any time. ahead of wednesday's inauguration, all 50 state capitols are on high security alert for violence. at the state capitol yesterday, calm did prevail, in sacramento, where there is a large military and police presence. this is just one element of the tight security measures leading up to the inauguration. 1,000 national guard members, many from here in the bay area, have taken their posts to protect the capitol building and state offices. they will be at the capitol at least through wednesday. a large pro-trump demonstration planned for today has been called off. the chp denied permits for the events citing covid-19 and safety concerns. counter demonstrators say they are ready to stand up to anyone who might turn to violence. >> i felt it was necessary to come out and simply as a show
that no matter what someone's political beliefs, their religion, their race, their creed, we are one nation, we believe in our democracy, and the peaceful transition of power. >> several sacramento businesses also are boarding up their windows ahead of possible violent crowds on wednesday. over to washington, d.c., we go, where police arrested a man they say tried to get into the inauguration area with a fake pass, a loaded gun, and ammunition. officers say wesley bealer tried to get through a checkpoint and into the restricted area friday night by presenting a fake credential. while one officer was getting information from bealer, another officer noticed pro gun stickers on the back window of his truck. now to our continuing coronavirus coverage, more than 40,000 new cases have been reported in just a 24-hour period. 669 californians lost their lives friday, that's the second most ever in one day for
california. now taking a look at our icu bed availability statewide, southern california and san joaquin valley continue to be at zero%, using surge beds for new patients. the bay area is a little high irbut not by much, 3.4%. sacramento at 6.2%. the northern california region is at 24% availability. remember, the bay area needs to be at 15% availability, so we can open back up again. in the east bay, we found a doctor who rolled up her sleeves this weekend, not to receive the covid vaccination but to give doses to others. dr. rebecca parish runs comprehensive wellness, an independent practice in walnut creek. she was seeing anxiety and frustration from many of our senior patients trying to get the covid vaccine, trying to get an appointment. so she decided to just organize her own clinic. >> i had a patient call me absolutely in tears, my 83-year-old patient, and after
trying to navigate online and she just wasn't able to do it. >> she worked to make that drive-through site a reality. she acquired the doses with help from the county. health care volunteers and local organizations gathered together to pull it all off at stanley middle school in lafayette. after today, it's estimated 500 senior also have received their first dose of the pfizer vaccine. all spots are filled, but we should tell you that if you go to our story on nbcbayarea.com, there is an email address and you can register for the doctor's next clinic. one of the first cvs vaccine clinics in the state started operations in fremont yesterday. the clinic took place at aegis assisted living in fremont. the general manager says the community has really been looking forward to it. >> all the residents are extremely excited for the vaccination. we've had an overwhelmingly positive response from the family members, and they're all
extremely excited that we're able to get the vaccines this soon. >> 240 residents and staff got the vaccine. if you need more information on how to get vaccinated, weo help. just take out your phone, use the camera, and you can scan that qr code on the bottom left-hand side of your screen. that will take you right to our vaccination guide. then scroll down to our county, and that's where you'll find information on how to sign up and where to go. another way, the old-fashioned way i like to call it, just go to nbcbayarea.com and right at the top click on "covid-19 vaccination guide." we have new detail this is morning about a san francisco mobile home where police say they found chemicals used to make explosives. the owner of that mobile home is still in police custody. we first told you about this yesterday morning on "today in the bay." san francisco police on friday night discovered the chemicals. the fbi was called in, this was at candlestick rv park on
fwilman avenue near candlestick point. police remained on scene all day yesterday. the fbi has turned over the investigation to the sfpd. police tell us it appears to be an isolated incident, and as we told you yesterday morning, more than 100 neighbors were evacuated as a precaution. >> they had the whole rv park pretty much like lined up on the side and told them that they had to go find somewhere else to stay for the night due to i don't really know what it's due to. >> police arrested 37-year-old kyle fulsome in connection with the incident. we're told the investigation is still ongoing. and at 7:09, we do have much more ahead on "today in the bay." coming up, we take you live to our weekly conversation with chuck todd who has a preview of this week's "meet the press." plus ahead of the historic inauguration a bay area symphony is honoring kamala harris. you can join in, we'll tell you
welcome back. it is time now to bring in chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press." as always, thanks for joining thus morning. i want to start by saying i hope this past week gave you some time to catch up on rest following the week before, and the week ahead. chuck, we know that the clout that republican majority leader and soon to be minority leader mitch mcconnell has with his senate colleagues. i'm wondering if mcconnell votes to convict former president trump of the impeachment charge, after he becomes former president, how do you expect the rest of his colleagues to follow suit? >> look, this is going to be one of those if mitch mcconnell votes to convict, i think it means there are 16 other votes to convict. if he cannot recruit 16 others to vote to convict, i don't know
if he does, right? it is a tricky balance it's clear he -- to me, he's sending a signal that he wants to do this, that he thinks it's short term pain but the long-term gain is making him impossible to be a player in the republican primary and the theory is this. donald trump, you know, the second he finds out he can't run for president anymore, he'll whine, he'll complain, but then he'll move on and he'll want to be influential somewhere else. he'll probably just walk away. he has never been somebody who believes the movement is bigger than him. he has always believed he's bigger than the movement so the theory that mcc and some that would like to vote to convict are basically sending is stop fearing -- i no he what the polls say. stop fearing him as much as you do. his clout is going to fade faster than you think, but you know, that's a leap of faith for some of these republicans.
so it's right now going to be a close call. i'll make one prediction, if donald trump self-pardons, that would be a tipping point for some senate republicans to vote to convict. >> i always love your predictions. we save the tape and roll it back, i feel like you are a usually right. >> tape the tape, uh-oh. >> switch gears now to president-elect joe biden. he has a $1.9 trillion covid-19 stimulus proposal. sticking with that mitch mcconnell republican angle is there likely enough republican goodwill in the opening days of his presidency to secure passage of that? >> look, i actually think there is. i think you're going to see somewhere between 15 and 20 senate republicans make a very public effort to want to work
with joe biden for six months. i'm not saying it's going to last and not saying they're going to be there for climate change legislation or tweaks to the health care law but covid relief, perhaps massive infrastructure funding, i think there's going to be 10 to 12 senate republicans that joe biden in the first six months can work with. i think that, and i think in some ways the january 6 riots are going to be a bit of an extra motivator for that group of republicans to make that extra effort, because of just really how ashamed they are of what happened. >> and you would think or hope at this point we could all agree that our country could use some help with covid relief. you would hope it would just be a bipartisan effort at this point. >> correct. >> chuck, we appreciate you, thanks for joining us. this weeks a"meet the press" washington, d.c., mayor muriel
bowser and exclusive interviews with dr. anthony fauci and new jersey senator cory booker. stick here and stick with "meet the press" at 8:00 a.m., right after this newscast. and if you stay with me, coming up in about 30 minutes from now, we will talk to nbc bay area political analyst larry gerston, the steps joe biden has to take to lead our divided nation. plans to send a ground-breaking immigration reform bill to congress on his first day in office, offering legal status to the estimated 11 million people currently in the united states illegally according to biden's incoming chief of staff. it's not clear how or when that path to citizenship would move forward, while the government also deals with the coronavirus crisis, and an economy just in shambles. the policy is a clear and
dramatic shift from the trump administration which sought to tighten restrictions on undocumented immigrants. vice president-elect kamala harris will be sworn in by supreme court justice sonia sotomayor. it is a historic first, the first woman and the first woman of color taking her oath from the first woman of color to sit on the supreme court. an aide says harris specifically chose sotomayor for that job. harris has chosen two meaningful bibles to use during the ceremony. one belonged to mrs. regina shelton a close harris family friend, used the same bible when sworn in as california attorney general. the other bible belonged to the late civil rights icon and supreme court justice thurgood marshall. now to the oakland symphony. it is getting ready for wednesday. it is holding atu inaugural ball and the concert

and yet, and yet we see a poll taken by pew research last week literally last week after all this stuff at the capitol and whatnot and you see 65% say yes, biden won. 34% say no, trump won. trump won the election. this is just, you know, astounding, given everything we know, all objective information, but that's what we have, and that's the environment in which this president takes over on wednesday. >> and that's just about a third of voters, so how do you explain that gulf between what really happened and what so many voters continue to believe? >> yes, well, it's really in some ways it's pretty simple, but yet it's still perplexing. the fact is that president trump
had been claiming this to be a rigged election, even months before the people went to the polls, and even now in fact, he says, even now, he says he won. how did this come to pass? well, there were three paths, if you want to say, that he mined. he picked on minorities over and over again. we know this even back to 2015. they're responsible for our problems in this country. he picked china and other countries for taking american jobs, and of course, he picked on the media for misrepresenting everything that he said, and making things worse. he kept on asserting claims against these three elements over and over again. meanwhile, what did he do? he tapped into those who have felt left behind and about i that i refer to non-college educated rural white men in their 30s and 40s and these are the folks, if you think about
it, who disproportionately were at the january 6th meeting and invaded the capitol. all these folks, all these folks are the ones that trump zeroed in on and these folks largely disproportionately make up those who think the president did not win. >> you're painting the picture, there's just one-third of the nation, we'll go ahead and say, who remain against president-elect joe biden, no matter what. how does he deal with these circumstances as he takes office on wednesday? >> yes, good question. look, joe biden's got a big task ahead of himself, there's no question about that. he's got to stay on message, sounds simple, yet that's what president trump did for so many years. biden has to stay on message. he has to say he is the president for all americans, whether you voted for him, whether you didn't vote for him. he has to try to reach out particularly kira to the
disaffected. he has to come up with job training programs for those who feel their jobs have been taken. he's got to look to rural needs. that's where these folks are from. there are hospitals, there are roads, there are schools. he's got to do all of these things to show people that he is trying to bring them back, bring them back into this great panaplea we call america, the values and people out there making this country what it's always been, and listen, he can't do this by himself, kira, because this didn't happen overnight. this has been building for at least a generation and for that, we have to return to the schools who have to teach people these students, who become adults, who become folks who are part of the system downstream, they've got to teach these folks exactly what democracy means, what it means to cooperate, what it means to compromise, what it means to understand that we have different values and ideas and
how they're all great, they all belong. these are the kinds of things that the biden administration has to plant as seeds now and hopefully these things will come to bear in the generations downstream, there's a lot to do. >> indeed. i'm thinking my young kids hoping to plant those seeds, as always, larry, thanks for your insight. we'll back with vianey's final forecast.
