tv Today in the Bay NBC July 24, 2022 7:00am-8:00am PDT
good morning. sunday, july 24. foggy, misty in san francisco. good luck to the people running the marathon, half marathon, 10k. so many active people out there this morning. hopefully the cool weather is keeping them cool. thank you for starting your sunday with us. i'm kira klapper. rob mayeda is in and joins with us a look at the micro climate forecast. i did see mist on the drive in.
>> bundling up. san jose a little more sunshine. waking up to the comfortable 50s. there is another view of san francisco. 53. misty skies over downtown. by lunchtime around the inland east bay starting to see numbers in the 70s and 80s inland. the warmest places are livermore to fairfield mid-90s. a different story around the oak fire. the weather update this morning shows a wildfire behaving like a thunderstorm. this is a hot burning area. we did see that on the satellite view. a lot of ash being carried down wind. this fire is not getting a break from the weather. 70s for lows around the fire lines. dry conditions later on this afternoon. temperatures are climbing into the upper 80s. we will talk about the smoke impact from the oak fire on the
bay area air quality in 10 minutes. back to you. >> thanks, rob. that's where we begin near yosemite as fast moving flames from the oak fire are racing toward homes and showing no signs of slowing down. the fire started friday afternoon. it was scorched more than 12,000 acres. we have time lapse video from overnight. you can see the huge flume of smoke and the glow of the flames. call fire says it's burping in steep rough terrain and making it hard for crews to gain access. right now there is no containment. the fire is burning southwest of yosemite. take a look at the map. you can see the oak fire. there is the washburn fire burning inside the park. to give you a better idea of how fast the oak fire is moving, it's already 2 1/2 times the size of the washburn fire that you can see in comparison. thousands are under mandatory
evacuations. >> sheriff came out. you got to go now. >> just like a hurricane. >> we got our stuff together. i went up the hill and looked and i was like oh, my god. it's coming fast. >> yesterday governor newsom declared a state of emergency for maricopa county. the fire is so powerful that firefighters say embers are starting spot fires two miles away. containment is at 0%. crews from the north bay are helping fight the oak fire. sonoma county tweeted out a video of the rigs leaving yesterday afternoon. take a look at this video giving us a bird's-eye view of the fire. you can see how massive it is. the hot spots and flames continue to spread. so far the fire has destroyed at least 10 structures. we will turn to the monkeypox outbreak.
the world health organization declaring it a public health emergency of international concern. the world health organization activating the highest alert in hopes of preventing another pandemic. in the bay, we explain what it means for us. >> reporter: this believes monkeypox is a threat to go ball health. the last time it was sounded was in 2020 because of covid. two months later it was declared a pandemic. day after damon can i position counts are rising locally and globally prompting the world health organization to sound the alarm and declare the outbreak a public health emergency of international concern. >> more than 70 countries with monkeypox in places where they don't normally have monkeypox. >> reporter: 16,000 cases are reported worldwide. in san francisco, cases doubled in the last week reaching 197 probable and confirmed infections. >> san francisco compared to other cities are increasing at
a rapid pace. that means we should have more vaccines to deal with the fact that we are impacted disproportionately. >> reporter: five people were hospitalized in the city. a doctor says they are expecting a new patient in the next 24 hours. he thinks this is the start and we will see a lot more cases in the coming weeks. >> we started seeing them in the last week or so which suggests that a lot more people are getting infected. >> reporter: he says the world health organization can't implement national guidelines but the move is a major call to action. now it's up to the u.s. to declare a nationwide emergency. >> decide like covid it is a public health emergency. funds could be diverted. there will be lower barriers for testing and vaccines and lower barriers for treatment. >> reporter: friday the biden administration said they are considering a public health emergency but no final decision
yet. as mentioned, there are nearly 200 cases in san francisco. the bay area accounts for half of all of the state's monkeypox cases. almeda 41 suspected cases. nine in contra costa county. 31 in the south bay. the other counties have five or fewer cases. napa is the only exception with no reported cases so far. we have everything you need to know about monkey box on nbc area streaming app. download it for your roku, amazon fire or apple tv. look under the must see play list to get the latest updates. the call to close read hill airport in san jose has intensified after this small plane crash within yards of homes. it happened friday night. last night neighbors held a rally to voice safety concerns
about crashes and lead. today in the bay was there. >> reporter: neighbors say the small plane that crashed near read hill airport and their homes is another example why the airport needs to close asap. >> people are petrified that a plane will land on their house, their family, their children. >> shut it down, shut it down. >> reporter: a group of more than 50 neighbors echoed concerns as they demanded the airport be shut down. but it's not just crashes that concern them. they are more worried about lead contamination after a study commissioned by county supervisors showed kids in the area had high levels in their blood. >> that lead study demonstrated children within a mile and a half of this airport have a high rate of lead in their blood. that elevated blood level matched that in flint michigan. >> reporter: those fighting to save reid hill say it's vital and can be used for emergency
services during a disaster. they say they have taken steps to make it safer. county health officials recently stopped provided leaded fuel at the airport to reduce lead contamination. neighbors say that hasn't stopped pilots from fueling up elsewhere with leaded fuel and flying over their homes. cindy chavez plans to head to washington, d.c. for a congressional hearing for the impact of leaded aviation fuel and hopes to put pressure on the epa and faa to shut down reid hill sooner. after the county supervisors voted to stop providing federal grant money to the airport it's slated to close in 2031. these neighbors say they can't wait that long. >> they want to keep the airport open until 2031. they still want to continue letting the planes fly over our
heads poisoning our children. >> here is a live look at sfo this morning. the sun is shining. this is where some reloved families picked up high school students after they were stranded in europe for days. most saratoga high school students touched down last night. the school's orchestra was touring earn europe the past two weeks. they originally were set to return home wednesday but the airline canceled the flight. many of the students made it to new york then on to sfo. some students are still in prague set to return tomorrow. 7:09. we have much more ahead on "today in the bay." coming up, live to washington, d.c. for our weekly interview with chuck todd who has a preview of thisweek's "meet
seen this ad? it's not paid for by california tribes. it's paid for by the out of state gambling corporations that wrote prop 27. it doesn't tell you 90% of the profits go to the out of state corporations. a tiny share goes to the homeless, and even less to tribes. and a big loophole says, costs to promote betting reduce money for the tribes, so they get less. hidden agendas. fine print. loopholes. prop 27. they didn't write it for the tribes or the homeless. they wrote it for themselves.

discussion with chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press." thank you for joining us this morning. i want to start with the weather, not just small talk but this past week record breaking heat across the globe, high temperatures in england and china, heat waves in the u.s. you have former vice president al gore on today. this is one of his passions following climate change and warning about it. what is his message? >> that the public has to start voting on this issue more and demanding that the people they send to office focus on the issue. he admitted the acknowledgement is there. the concern about climate is growing. the number of climate deniers are shrinking but what we are acting is political will. plenty in this country may agree climate is an issue but
we have high gas prices. europe claims they care more about the climate than the united states. they are panicked about the high cost of energy. china and india are fossil fuel vacuum cleaners. there isn't a global leader on this any more and the thought was it would be the united states and it doesn't appear it will be the united states yet but former vice president -- i implore folks, it's shockingly precious when you rewatch inconvenient truth and realize it was made in 2006 and everything that he was reporting on, what scientists said would happen, how we would feel the first effects of this and it was scary how predictively correct it was. >> yeah, scary indeed. i will to go back and watch that. before we let you go, i want to ask you about the january 6th committee. we saw it on thursday night. we learned a lot about what
happened that day between president trump's speech and then the video telling rioters to stop. what happens next. that was the last hearing of the summer? >> right. well, look, i have elaine luria on. she led the hearing thursday night. she said they are getting more information. she told me before the interview that they got new information an hour before the last hearing and used a little bit of it but there is more that they have that they haven't been able to show the american public that they would like to show. i think they have to figure out how to strike the balloons of more details that reinforce what they already found versus giving the american public that -- the complete report, right. and it is -- i have a library filled with things like the warren commission report, the 9/11 report, iran contra report, when will i have that was my question. it's not clear that i will have
it before the election. maybe, obviously, the deadline is january 3rd 2023 when there is a new congress. >> interesting. it will be a big line to get that book so to speak. chuck, thanks so much for your insight this morning. we hope you join chuck for this morning's "meet the press." he will have an interview with former vice president al gore as well as the exclusive interview with elaine luria. he will have treasury secretary janet yellen. it is at 8:00 a.m. after this newscast. in about 30 minutes from now we will talk to larry gursten. we will look at what pivotal moments stood out in the recent hearings. former president trump spoke of the turning point summit in tampa, florida. 3,000 people gathered for the second day of the weekend long
event. the summit serves to eat indicate and train young conservatives on the principles of freedom and limited government. during his remarks he spoke about the differences between the two parties. >> the radical left wants global government, defunding the police, wide open borders. they want no voter id. i wonder why they want no voter id. i can't imagine. could it be that they want to cheat in elections? that couldn't be. we want sovereignty, public safety and strong secure borders and we respect law enforcement. >> he went on to say that the young people at the convention will help determine the future of america. the state department has confirmed that two u.s. citizens believed to be fighting in the war against russia died in ukraine. the parents of luke lucian say their son went to ukraine in early april to help as a medic.
the 31-year-old father of two is half ukrainian. his father said once he decided to go there was no stopping him. >> he saw the war and they needed help. he said, mom, i'm going so he went. we tried to dissuade him. >> every time i talked to him, i told him come home. >> they were told luke was knocked unconscious by artillery. when three other fighters tried to save them, a tank started firing at them. the state department confirmed the recent deaths happened in the donbas region of ukraine. the family of alexis gabe hopes they are closer to answers in the young woman's disappearance. they organized another search yesterday in oakley. volunteers found parts of a cell phone and glasses believed to be gabe. she was last seen in january. police believe s lled by ex-boy who was shot and killed during .
> >>turning to new york now, popular beach was closed again because of shark sightings. it comes after more than two dozen attacks nationwide this summer. that's why some beaches are turning to a high-tech solution to spot sharks before they get close. they are using drones. it has been a game changer for many lifeguards. they launch them above the shore to locate large schools of fish that may attract the fish. scientists may be more drawn to swimmers over surfers because they slap and kick the water like fish. they say humans typically aren't on the shark menu but sometimes sharks make mistakes. trending this morning, maybe you heard of them or smelled them. this is a live look at the corpse flower on the sjsu
campus. some compare the fragrance, you might call it, to rotting meat or road kill. if you live near santa cruz, you may catch a whiff of more than the usual fresh open air. the corpse flower is expected to open up at the arboretum. the smell fades after 12 to 24 hours. if seeing a stinky flower isn't your thing, you can get out and have fun. >> reporter: happy sunday. some folks relax on the weekend -- that would be me -- others like to warm 5k or 10k. today is the citywide marathon. a half dozen ways to participate. half the city is impacted by road closures. traffic control has lots of impacts. be advice in and around the northern portion of the city. running, maybe not enough for
you, how about a hop, a big hop. the wine country hop. it's a big footprint here. just four stops on this yarn hop but they are in petaluma, santa rosa and ukiah. from yarn to the strings and the brass and the east bay, here is the new mall here. here is the mariachi festival. check out the bay. >> so much to do. thanks, mike. it's time to check in with meteorologist rob mayeda. >> you may need to bundle up. san francisco has drizzle this morning and all day sea breeze keeping temperatures mild around the bay. we are starting off in the 50s for most of the bay ar with
the drizzle storm ongoing closer to the coast. san jose 54, patchy low clouds inland to the tri-valley. in dublin it should approach 90 later on today. you won't see 90s in san francisco. instead, misty skies and high temperatures in the low 60s for the san francisco marathon. you saw the folks bundled up across the golden gate bridge. around 2:00, fog and drizzle at times. we will probably see this again tomorrow morning. notice the futurecast. lots of low clouds going west to the golden gate bridge by 1:00 in the afternoon. with that pattern in place, we go from the mid-50s outside to lunchtime temperatures in the 70s and 80s inland. warmest spots are inland contra costa and solano counties and 80s around morgan hill and mid- 60s san francisco and near 70
in oakland. notice the north bay, 70s and 80s here. then into morgan hill, a little southet wind coming up from gilroy. maybe not quite as warm around the coyote valley. the warmest is the tri-valley. notice the wind direction. this is important in terms of the temperatures keeping it mild but keeping a lot of wildfire smoke from the oak fire to the east. right now i checked the air quality up to lake tahoe. unhealthy. you can see the trend through monday thanks to our on shore wind. that will mostly keep the smoke out of the bay area but upper level haze, gher up drifting from the east at times early next week. things will be trending cooler tuesday into wednesday. that's because of the that sea breeze which we hope kes the air quality fine here. one other item to watch, could be a slight chance of a stray shower maybe around the north bay hill early on tuesday
morning and i do thk we will see a better chance of showers out to the sierra. we will see if that has positive impacts around the air fire burning. for now hot and dry out to the sierra. next weekend 70s. hottest temperatures in the seven-day forecast could be approaching next weekend. >> i see that. thanks so much. we have much more ahead on "today in the bay." the giants are feeling blue. yes, i said it. another loss to the dodgers. how l.a. stopped the late gamcomeback. e here's why tribal leaders
urge you to vote yes on prop 27. the act provides hundreds of millions every year for permanent solutions to homelessness, mental health and addiction in california. prop 27 suorts financially disadvantaged tribes that don't own big casinos. by taxing and regulating online sports betting for adults1 and over, we can protect tribal sovereignty and finally do something about homelessness in california. vote yes on prop 27.
comeback. rbi single to left. next pitch, this goes to right. that cuts the lead in half. with the go-ahead run at the plate, is slater goes down looking. the dodgers win it 4-2. he doesn't like the call. the giants lost three in a row since the start of the second half of the season. >> sign him up. >> sign him up is right. the ball boy flashing the leather. nice catch. the play of the game came a bit earlier for josh smith. check this out. makes a sliding catch on th foul ball. the runner on third tags and scores. great catch from josh smith. quakes on the road in portland. scoreless into the 42nd minute. he fis the back of the net to
get a lead but timbers answers with a pair of goals in the second half. portland beats san jose 2-1. this weekend this san jose native is racing at the sonoma national. it's the third season competing. she needs to pull off a few upsets. she qualified 12th. on friday she told me what it's like to ride a bike with 400 horsepower. >> there are no seat belts, no rapachute. when you make a clean run you have to be on it going almost 200 miles per hour you have to be ready for anything. >> the finals are later
fog, clouds, wind, mist, all sorts of things are greeting the runners of the san francisco marathon, half marathon, 10k and 5k this morning. you see them on the bridge there. good luck to everyone. thank you for starting your sunday morning with us. i'm kira klapper. rob mayeda is in and joins us with a look at the micro climate forecast. i saw the mist but behind you it's beautiful. >> you never know what the weather will be like during the summer. we have patchy clouds, 54 degrees. misty skies, a drizzle storm around san francisco. 60s later on today. 80s closer to san jose. but a different story around the oak fire. unfortunately we are seeing dry conditions. the fire itself is showing up on radar behaving more like a
thunderstorm at times. that is embers and ash that the radar is finding this morning. temperatures in the 70s now with humidity very dry all night. it will stay that way into the afternoon. highs in the upper 80s. more extreme fire behavior likely on the oak fire as we wrap up the weekend. >> thanks, rob. with the oak fire, fast moving claims claiming homes. it started friday afternoon and burned more than 14,000 acres. we just go that update from 12,000 to 14,000. we have time lapse video from overnight from the fire. you can see the huge plume of smoke. the fire ignited in deep rough terrain and is making it tough for crews to gain access. right now there is no containment. the fire is burning southwest of yosemite. this is where the oak fire is burning. overhere is where the washburn
fire has been burning inside the park. to give you a better idea of how fast the oak fire is growing, it's already 2 1/2 times the size of the washburn fire. thousands of people are under mandatory evacuation. >> sheriff came up. you got to go now. >> it's just like a hurricane. >> we got stuff together and i went up the hill to look. i was like oh, my god. it's coming fast. >> yesterday governor newsom declared a state of emergency for maricopa county as the flames spread. the fire is so powerful that embers are starting spot fires two miles out. containment at 0%. crews from the north bay are heading to the fire near yosemite. sonoma county fire tweeted out several rigs leaving yesterday afternoon. take a look at this. this will might be hard to
decipher. this is a bird's-eye view of the fire. you can see how huge lights, the hot spots and the flames spreading. the oak fire destroyed 10 structures. we will turn to the monkeypox outbreak. the world health organization declares it a public health emergency of international concern. today in the bay explains that the world health organization is activating the highest alert in hopes of preventing another pandemic. >> reporter: this means the health organization believe monkeypox is a threat to the public health. the last time it was sounded was in 2020 because of covid. two months later it was declared a pandemic. monkey counts are rising. the world health organization sounded the alarm and declared it a public health emergency of international concern. >> 70 countries with monkeypox in places where they don't
normally have monkeypox. >> 16,000 cases are reported worldwide. in san francisco, cases doubled in the last week reaching 197 probable and confirmed infections. >> san francisco compared to other cities, increasing at a rapid pace which from my perspective means we should have more vaccines to deal with the fact that we are impacted disproportionately. >> reporter: less than five have been hospitallized in the city. they are expecting a new patient in the next 24 hours. he thinks this is just the start and we will see a lot more cases in the coming weeks. >> we started seeing them in the last week or so which suggests that a lot more people are getting infected. >> reporter: he said the world health organization can't implement national guidelines. the move is a major call to action. it's up to the u.s. to declare a nationwide emergency. >> like covid, it's an
emergency, public health emergency. funds could be diverted. low we are barriers for testing and vaccines and treatment. >> reporter: friday the biden administration says they are considering a public health emergency but no final decision yet. >> there are nearly 200 cases in san francisco. the bay area accounts for more than half of all of california's monkey box cases. alameda county has 41 confirmed or suspected cases. there are nine in contra costa. 31 in the south bay. the other counties as you can see have five or fewer cases september for napa county. no reported cases there so far. we have everything you need to know about monkeypox on the nbc bay area streaming app. you can download it. look under the must see play list to get the latest updates. now to the call to close

mile and a half of this airport have a high rate of lead in their blood. and that elevated blood level matched that in flint, michigan. >> reporter: those fighting to save reid hill say it did be used for emergency services during a disaster and they say they have taken steps to make it safer. county health officials recently stopped provided leaded fuel to reduce lead con temperature mine nation. the supervisor, cindy chavez said on thursday she plans to head to washington, d.c. for a congressional hearing on the impact of leaded aviation fuel. she hopes to put pressure on the epa and faa to shut down reid hill sooner. after the county supervisors voted to stop providing federal grant money to the airport,

welcome to the middle of everything! did you know that the corn dog was born right here in illinois? bye bye! oh, i'm scared of heights too, grandma. but then i got tall! ha ha ha. welcome back. we are waking up to drizzle and a lot of low clouds in san francisco. 53. patchy low clouds closer to san
jose at 54. notice the wind direction. that could be good news for your temperatures throughout morgan hill and gilroy with a southeast wind. out to the tri-valley numbers in the mid-50s for now. should see highs closer to 90 this afternoon. the low clouds and haze will lift inland. we will continue with the low clouds heading into the afternoon. the temperature trend going from the 50s outside to about 8:00, 9:00 to 70s and 80s inland. notice livermore is warming quickly to fairfield and brentwood into the 90s. 80s closer to san jose. upper 60s to near 70 in oakland and low to mid-60s in san francisco with the sea breeze breeze. the latest on the air quality issues, look at the from the sea breeze at the surface level and the of the west south but we may begin to see more of
that smoke across the interior northern california. if you have lake tahoe plans you can see how the air quality will be unhealthy off and on through monday and the middle part of the week. high temperatures over the next few days will be trending a little cooler as the ocean air- conditioning kicks up a bit. that should drop the temperatures, keep the air quality in check through about wednesday. second half of the week temperatures should climb. on the topic of the oak fire, things may get interesting as the monsoon moisture gets involved with california's weather. areas south of lake tahoe could see scattered showers and the potential of thundershowers. it could be good news to bring showers around the oak fire, might briefly i am brief air quality but we don't want lightning strikes.
as you see the temperature trend to next weekend, maybe san francisco finally gets closer to the 70s by next saturday. drizzle and cool temperatures through the middle of the week. things will be warmer around the valley here, nothing like they are seeing on the east coast. the heat is not bad, upper 80s to low 90s today and then perhaps mid-90s around the tri- valley. not a bad forecast for now. >> wildfires, smoke, good knees, we will be praying for that. thanks, rob. we have much more ahead on today in the bay. coming up, nbc bay area political analyst joins us to talk about the latest revelations from the january 6th hearings and where e committethe

threat of extinction. that announcement came this week. you may have missed it. monarchs will be an endangered species due to years of habitat destruction and rising global temperatures. the global population is as much as 72% lower over the past decade. monarchs in the western u.s. are being hit the hardest. many are known to migrate through marin, santa cruz and pacific grove. the marsh fire in pittsburgh is extinguished. they say they used about 200 million gallons of water. it was smoldering underground since the end of may. on thursday, the house select january 6th committee held the final meeting of the
summer. the members spent three hours analyzing the 187 minutes between the time that the capitol was stormed to president trump's video appeal for the insurrectionists to leave. larry girsten joins us. good to see you. i assume you watched the whole thing. what did you glean from that nearly three hour presentation? >> good morning. from beginning to end, absolutely. look, there are so many things to talk about. number one, president trump was ware of everything from beginning to end. these are his people saying this, the insiders saying this. these are trumpers saying this. the second point, despite the violence that he saw, trump did not act, he did not act at all, just let it go. if you saw anything, the last few minutes were so instrumental in understanding the president's thinking because they were the outtakes
of the president's attempt to address the nation the next day. he could not admit that he lost the election. he couldn't say it was over. it was something to watch him grapple with the tough issues for him. >> this is something i touched on with chuck todd, we expected them to tie it up on thursday but they will reconvene in september. so, what is still to come? >> this happens when you have these kinds of hearings. you look for information and sometimes you find stuff that you didn't think you would get. they are left with questions. what happened during the four hours that the president watched all this? there is nothing in the white house logs. what about the seven hour gap in the log as well from way before to way after? no pictures, nothing written, no understanding, no phone calls, the whole thing. finally, what about the secret service. this is something that dropped out of the sky. they lost all of their texts? these people are guarding the
president on the 5th and the 6th. why? what? is it possible? these are the kinds of things that the committee has to delve in to over the next couple of months. >> you touched on the secret service there. the hearings have been more than just about president trump, haven't they? >> yeah, they really have. look, i don't mean to get serious but this is a serious issue, about the future of the country, the whole question of democracy. liz cheney laid it out. people in her party need to separate the values that they have from the constitution and what it provides for us, is what makes our democracy so special here. there is a drama. the dam is breaking. for republicans, think about putting country over party. you can have all those values you want but country over party is most important. serious stuff from her toward the end. >> she definitely gave a
passionate speech and hinting about president trump's run again in 2024. do you think these hearings will produce the kind of changes that cheney is specifically seeking? >> if we only new the answer to that question. right now, not so much, kira. the usual experts are giving their opinions one way or the other. a poll was taken not too long ago, a couple of weeks ago asking what do you think about this? should trump be charged with a crime? here 61% yes. 28%, no. okay. that's good. one-sided. we know the answer there. then you delve down to what i was trying to say a minute ago. how do you get the usual suspects saying whatever you expect them to say. democrats, 88% say, yes, he should be charged with a rhyme.
