(vicki) tonight... the city of san francisco has a new interim mayor. supervisor mark farrell was appointed in... in a surprise vote... thanks for joining us, i'm grant lodes... and i'm vicki liviakis... right now farrell is about to speak publicly for the first time tonight at city hall... farrell was voted- in... to fill the seat that was left open by the sudden death of mayor ed lee in december. at the time, the president of the board of supervisors - london breed .. became the acting mayor ... as is laid out in the city charter. it was a highly contested and sought after position .. but in a 6- to -three vote farrell beat out breed. her supporters were not happy and made that clear in todays' meeting. a couple of weeks ago, a group of breeds female supporters held a rally at city hall encouraging the board to vote in favor of breed as the interim mayor..
but farrell will now be the interim mayor of san francisco ..until the next mayoral election. (vicki) former interim mayor london bree just tweeted moments ago... it's been an honor to serve the city during this difficult time. i have a vision for an inclusive & fair san francisco, and will keep working every day on the important issues we face: homelessness, housing, & public safety.

franciscopolice are franciscopolice are searching for a gunman after a double shooting that has left one person dead. it happened in the bernal heights neighborhood ... on richland avenue and leese street.... around 5:15- tonight. two people were shot...one victim died and the other is in critical condition... right now, we do not know the relationship, if any, between the shooter and the victims. we will continue to track this story... and bring you updates throughout the night...but again...a namhunt is underway right now...as police try to find the shooter. (vicki) another big story we are following tonight...
a scare here in the bay...and up and down the west coast... after an earthquake in alaska triggers a tsunami watch. this is video as the 7-point-nine magnitude earthquake hit the gulf of alaska. (grant) here is a closer look at where the earthquake hit.... it struck just after 1:30 this morning...about 175 miles off the coast. and as we zoom out...those animated waves show where we ácouldá have been be impacted by a tsunami.... (vicki) that tsunami watch may have had you worried if you were awake during the early morning hours today.(grant) and as kron four's spencer blake reports, things might have been much worse...if it had been a different átype of quake. :00-:10 usgs explains quake effect:10-:17 brian kilgore ÷ usgs geophysicist:17-1:30 usgs explains quake effect seven-point-nine magnitude.the
shaker off the alaskan coast tuesday morning was the world's biggest since september.people felt some shaking hundreds of kilometers away."this is a large earthquake, no doubt about it. from the human impact issue it wasn't such a big deal."part of the reason it wasn't a big deal, is because it was a strike-slip earthquake.that's where two plates slide laterally against one another, and don't produce much vertical motion.this is what usually happens along the fault lines in the bay area. but what's most common in the gulf of alaska, are subduction zone quakes."this line here marks the subduction zone." that's when one plate, the pacific plate in this case - slides underneath another plate - the north american plate.had that happened with seven-point-nine magnitude... "there would have been up and down motion of the ocean bottom, which would have displaced ocean water, which would have generated a tsunami that eventually would have made its way down to the bat area."you probably noticed the alert you got on your phone, if you are signed up to get them from san francisco's department of emergency management, for example, was for a tsunami watch."the potential for a tsunami was being evaluated and not confirmed.""the prudent thing to do was to issue a tsunami alert."if it had escalated to a warning, you would have heard sirens.inundation maps from the state show how san francisco's coastline might have been affected.after about
three hours, scientists could confirm that there áwas no tsunami danger, and the watch was canceled.in san francisco, spencer blake, kron four news. (grant) and that was the sound this afternoon as a tsunami test siren went off in san francisco. the siren on top of city hall. it happens every tuesday at noon... as a reminder for people in the area to be prepared in case a tsunami does hit. (grant) and today's tsunami watch is a good reminder for those living near the coast about how to prepare. the town of pacifica... has an early warning system
already in place. there are so many low lying areas west of highway one... you'll see signs warning people they are standing in a tsunami hazard zone.... and signs pointing out the way to a tsunami evacuation route. several years ago three tsunami warning sirens were installed along the beach. the sirens did not go off today, because it was only a tsunami watch, which means there was no imminent danger. but pacifica police says today was a good reminder that you never know when waves will go from surfable....to destructive. (grant) the city puts out tsunami
information pamphlets with maps to showing residents how far inland the destructive ocean waves will reach... we've linked the city of pacifica's tsunami preparedness website, kron4.com (vicki) the tsunami concern was almost 'dejavu' for boaters and others at the harbor in santa cruz. as kron four's rob fladeboe reports, it was all hands on deck amida flashback to the tsunami of 20-11 .... that caused widespread damage there. back in march of 2011, on a day not unlike this one, after an earthquake thousands of miles away, a tsunami swamped the harbor. two dozen boats were sunk. scores of others, including leonard's, were damaged. unattended craft broke loose and crashed into others. leonard wasn't going to take any chances this time. jeremy leonard "...yeay we had major damage because we got hit by a boat and a dock that had broken loose and they slammed into our boat and damaged the rudder..."people who live aboard their boats
were alerted around 3:30 this morning to be ready to evacuate. even after the tsunami watch was cancelled, they were advised to keep watch for what was described as unpredictable conditions that might persist for another 12 hours.it turns out the terraphobia was the only boat to cast off this morning, better safe than sorry says her skipper.jeremy leonard "....well i had a shop here in the harbor for 15 years and we had three false tsunami alarms until that one hit back in 2011 and we lost 22 boats so you never know....in santa cruz rob fladeboe kron 4 news news
