6:03 am
going to be waiting for big news coming from the school district wanting to know the state of about 14 schools that could potentially be closed over a three school-year time period. we have a snapshot of the schools that could be closed next year, and that includes bowman held men -- elementary. >> reporter: this move comes as district leaders say family leaders are pulling their children from the district and that is impacting the funding dollars. they predict they will have a all-time low of 16,500 students next year. the district is facing a 14 million deficit.
6:04 am
board members must make tough decisions, and that means closing some of the older school buildings in need of repair and shuffling students to more modern facilities with the next slate of closures started next school year. so far we have not heard anything about laying off teachers. as you saw, those rallies are held at local schools. 6:30 is the time of that meeting with the school board and it will be held virtual, and we will be able to relay what comes out of that meeting on air and online. we're live in hayward, cierra johnson for "today in the bay." >> thank you. developing in the eastern contra costa county, still no update on the authorities of a mother and 3-year-old toddler involved in a high speed crash in a parking lot. it happened around 6:30 last
6:05 am
night when a car plowed into a pillar outside a taco bell on main street. one woman jumped on top of the car to pull the baby to safety. >> once somebody said there was a child in the car, i just jumped up and handed the baby to her. >> the woman was driving at a high rate of speed before impact, but so police have not confirmed that. as soon as tomorrow the fda reportedly authorized booster covid shots for all american adults. >> just a handful of states right now, including california, are approved. fully vaccinated adults could receive a booster six months after their initial shot. >> look, first doses are even more important than third doses,
6:06 am
and so our priority remains getting people who are unvaccinated vaccinated. >> if the fda and cdc act quick enough, millions of additional americans would be eligible by thanksgiving. for more details on the bay area's fight against covid, more than half of eligible people have received a booster shot. overall, 73% of people over five years old are fully vaccinated. happening this morning, students on the peninsula will take part in a national movement. this is to remember somebody who helped shape american history. this week marks 61 years since the first day of kindergarten for ruby bridges. in 1960, she was the first black child to desegregate at a louisiana all-white elementary school. today students in san francisco will walk to school to commemorate the recently

6:08 am
we are starting out with a clear morning and soon we will see the sun coming over the hills. yeah, very chilly. only 26 degrees. we will warm up with a lot of sunshine by late morning into the afternoon, but we are just headed for the upper 60s for today. expect a high of 65 in antioch, and in the north bay where that fog hangs on a lot longer. we're looking at low 60s in some spots. we're also getting ready for some rain. we will talk about the timeline of that in a few minutes. mike being it's looking calmer out in oakland? >> yeah, talking about the bay bridge where things have calmed down as far as the backup. the pace of the backup was getting hectic here, quickly filling in the back parking lot and then slowly filling in the rest. there has not been a big volume coming down, so the initial metering lights traffic slowing down. highway 4, pittsburg in towards
6:09 am
concord, there's lighter traffic. everything else is clear. mild slowing through hayward. back to you. >> thanks, mike. gearing up for a busy thanksgiving travel rush. next on "today in the bay," the steps being taken right now and what you need to know if you are planning a new year's getaway to hawaii. one box store targeting inflation. i bet you can guess who it is? a mixed open on the markets, coming up at 6:30. the accidental invite to thanksgiving dinner that helped create a bond between two strangers that is lasting a lifetime. it's a really cute story. stick around for it. you are watching "today in the bay."

6:13 am
into record territory and the u.s. economy created more than a million jobs last month, and 4 million americans were so comfortable with their financial situation they quit their jobs. here's the interesting thing with target. the ceo said sales are strong but the company will work to keep prices where they are. he said they are not going to raise prices to account for inflation. target executive said on the phone call this morning the relationship with its customers is more important than profit. and shares in lucid motors were up. it's close to being worth more than ford.
6:14 am
lucid closing in on the worth of general motors. more on that will be on the "today" show. and then jessica watkins is heading to the space station as part of the nasa mission. she was part of the 2004 stanford rugby champions. fannie mae and freddie mac will increase the maximum price for mortgages they guarantee. good news for home buyers inexpensive markets like ours. to buy a house here you need generally two mortgages, the base mortgage and a jumbo. the changes mean the base mortgage could get bigger and the jumbo smaller, and that
6:15 am
could increase house prices. we will see. netflix will rank shows by how many hours people watch them, and right now it's ranked by how many people watch the first two minutes. >> i never knew that. >> isn't that strange? i showed you a clip of "red notice." we talked about easter eggs. as he looks around, that crate right there is from indiana jones. folks are watching that movie, which it's kind of dumb but it has great, great easter eggs in it. >> people are going to be, like, he called that movie dumb.

6:17 am
>> we know that some of your people are going to be traveling for the first time probably since the pandemic or before that, and they are not used to the whole travel experience. get familiar with your airline check-in procedures. things have changed since the last time you traveled. >> if you are heading to hawaii, the state still requires proof of vaccination or a negative test to pass quarantine. the rule is likely to remain in place until next year. an unexpected thanksgiving tradition being kept alive. >> in 2016, an arizona woman texted the wrong number, and jamal answered and he was invited to her thanksgiving. he joined them for thanksgiving for the next five years, and sadly this year will be the first one without her husband because he died from covid last
6:18 am
year. >> chosen family sometimes. >> exactly. >> sometimes you can be even closer. >> i love my brothers and sisters. i do. it's 6:17 this morning. as we get ready for the day, meteorologist, kari hall, can give you advice on what to wear. >> it's chilly this morning. we have had temperatures starting out in the mid-40s, so a heavy jacket needed. we are dealing with dense fog, morgan hill, that fog is rolling up but it clears up as you head north on 101 into san josé. antioch, you are starting out with a few clouds. chilly temperatures for the drop-off time at school, and in the pickup we will be in the 50s and mostly sunny. los gatos will reach 68 degrees. 69 in morgan hill with a high of
6:19 am
67 in danville and walnut creek. martinez will be a little cooler, but not a big difference here as we are looking at half moon bay, 63 today. 67 in palo alto. our north bay districts, 64 in north valley and 64 in clearlake. this system does not look all that organized here or very strong, and a lot of our models are putting down light amounts of rain, spotty showers starting on thursday night. wrapping up as we head through the day on friday, only about 0.1 of an inch of rain for parts of the north bay, and the rest of us could barely measure anything, maybe a trace to 0.01 of an inch. looks like la nina will continue through february, and since 1950, la nina events have
6:20 am
averaged 93% of the rain. we know that at least for the next week it's going to be pretty dry. we are going into the weekend with gusting winds and temperatures in the upper 60s. it's mainly the same with low to mid-60s from the coast to inland valleys. mike, you are seeing something on the bay bridge? >> yeah, it doesn't say much, the report, so i will say something. i don't see slowing, but there's tracking here and so they could slow down the metering lights until they see what is going on and i think it's probably a disabled vehicle and will clear quickly. a disabled vehicle reported out of vallejo, and we will see if it affects highway 37. i don't think this here will affect the transition ramps.
6:21 am
no slowing shows up in silicon valley. morgan hill and san martin hill with fog, so slowing there. >> thank you. next on "today in the bay," "nbc bay area responds." >> basically all adults in california are now eligible for a covid-19 vaccine booster. how do you get one? i am consumer investigator, chris chmura. we'll show you how, next. first, you know, life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get. mike inouye got a box, and his family left him only the dark chocolate covered raisins. luckily he likes them. follow him on social media.

6:23 am
6:24 am
welcome back, everyone. it's 6:24 right now. with fda approval still in the air on the state's my turn app, still not technically available on all adults. >> we wanted to prepare you, and consumer investigator, chris chmura, takes you through the steps to receive a booster shot. >> we have good news. getting a vaccine booster appointment is way easier than it used to be. no midnight web surfing, no stand-by wait lists or long road trips, like the one i took. to find an appointment ask your doctor or pharmacy or you can
6:25 am
use a federal location. there's contact information and what boosters they have. if you don't want to text you can call the federal locater service. you don't have to search for a specific booster to match your original shot. the cdc says it's okay to mix and match. when you are scheduling, you will likely have to specific you are looking for a booster. have your vaccine card handy because they will want to know when you had your last shot. some people are just now getting their first covid shots and some kids are getting their shots, too, you might find that some locations are booked up, so prepare to possibly schedule your appointment a couple days or week out. when you go to your appointment,
6:26 am
bring your vaccine record card and make sure they update it with your booster. your booster should be free regardless of whether you have health insurance. >> thanks, chris. 6:25 right now. a follow-up for you in the east bay. a deal now in place to develop the oakland coliseum complex. counsel members agreed to an exclusive deal with the african-american sports and entertainment group led by east oakland native, ray bobbitt. the specifics are not being released as of just yet, but city leaders hope it will lead to new affordable housing and more jobs. there are also plans to draw in a new wnba team to the arena. you may not have noticed yet, but a whole new crypto craze is going on. staples center, for example, will now be arena.

6:46 am
quote, independent and makes its own decisions. officially america does not recognize taiwan's independence from china, even though taiwan is totally independent of china, but in an arrangement called one china policy we don't talk about it. so the president had to back pedal a bit. >> i said they had to decide, not us. i said we are encouraging what they require. >> trump took a phone call from the taiwan president after he won the election. it's not clear trump knew under u.s. policy he should not have taken call.

6:50 am
into santa rosa. 101 from morgan hill, we are seeing dense fog in that area but it clears up as you head towards san josé. our temperatures will reach in the upper 60s this afternoon. we will see mid-60s for martinez today, reaching 64. also 64 in livermore, and 66 in redwood city. in daly city, we are looking at a high of 61 degrees. 59 in the outer sunset. downtown looking at a high of 65, and 65 also in sonoma. we are seeing mainly to upper 60s across the bay area, but we are getting ready for rain. the storm system looks fairly disorganized. we will start to bring in spotty rain late thursday night, and continue through early friday and then taper off. not all of us will see that rain. it looks like the more measurable rain will be in the north bay where we could be seeing up to0.1 of rain, and we need more because our reservoirs
6:51 am
are seeing only 11% capacity. we will continue to keep an eye on that. mike, now you still have the breaking news for the bart problem. >> yeah, it's affecting two lanes now, and it's because both lines go through the hayward bay fair area. it sounds like there's a train struck. this is complicated. the issue is here, so bart riders will have a problem and the roadways have a problem because it's jammed up at 880, and they did clear the crash but there's back flow as well. back to you. >> thank you, mike. it's 6:51 right now. happening now, palo alto's contracted shelter plans is terminating its agreement with the city.

representing lecturers shared a tweet sharing some of the agreements. hayward schools on the line as leaders debate what could be a wave of closures. cierra johnson is live. this could impact more than a dozen schools, cierra? >> reporter: yeah, good morning, marcus. 14 schools to be exact are in the consideration of potentially being closed. take a look at the screen and we have a list of schools they are talking about closing. the closures are due to a decrease of students in the school district. the school district predicts in the next couple of years the district will be at the lowest level of just under 16,000 students. with that shrinking they lose funding and they want to shuffle students from the older buildings to the more moderate
6:57 am
