"i think i would just ignore. it is local news doing a story on a lost dog. their entire government is shut down and about to default, and this is how the u.s. media spends its time?" air canada now says those comments do not reflect airline standards or professionalism. the airline says it's posted flyers of the missing dog at sfo. so far, the best lead on larry was a phone tip to the peninsula humane society but that didn't pan out. >> the challenge is it happened

5:20 pm
northwest of eureka. that's in the very complicated mendocino triple zone up here which is where the san andreas fault ends, dives under some of the continental plates that are offshore and it's also partially a subduction zone. there's a reason you have the cascade range and volcanos up there and one of the reasons is because of earthquakes like this where the pacific plate dives under the continent and then results in the chain of volcanos that runs all the way up into canada. this is just one little reminder that it is very seismically active in that part of california and a 5.0 is getting up there. 70 degrees at concord right now. san francisco 54. santa rosa 68 degrees. by the way i haven't heard of any reports of damage. but 35 miles away from a magnitude five there could be a little bit. we'll check into it for you. tomorrow will be in the low 70s around the bay. mid-70s inland. a very pleasant chilly overnight. we have clear cites and because of the clear skies, temperatures will come down to the mid-40s inland. despite that, high pressure is in full command of the eastern pacific and so that means this weekend will be warming up.

5:22 pm
the same for tomorrow but you'll notice that the rest of the week, we have nothing but sunshine. temperatures warm to near 80 degrees by monday inland and then we are just going to keep it there all the way through the end of the week next week. bay highs mid-70s. we'll get into that range by monday and then by friday, cooling a little bit and along the coast not a bad beach weekend except in the mornings we'll get the usual low clouds. but all those earthquakes are a reminder. >> 5.0, down here that would have gotten everybody's attention! >> i'll say! looking forward to see what happened in eureka. >> what did you call that? >> the mendocino triple junction where the san andreas fault dives under a subduction plate and the subduction plate is what gives us mount rainier, shasta and the mountains in the pacific northwest. parents fight to save a halloween tradition. >> this is really silly to get
