said the attack never posed a threat to critical us infrastructure, something president biden declared off limits during a summit with russian president vladimir putin last month as the president made clear to president putin when they met the russian government cannot. i will not take action against criminal actors residing in russia. we will take action or reserve the right to take action on our own. white house press secretary jen psaki says the administration is now mapping out an interagency response. there's more that can be done and it warrants and requires an interagency process and discussion in order to move those policies forward. psaki also says that meetings are ongoing between russian and u.s. officials to address cyber security concerns. but some republicans, including house minority leader kevin mccarthy say that's not enough. mccarthy criticized the president's approach tweeting biden is soft on crime and week against putin. >> and zaki says there's a
meeting scheduled for next week between us and russian officials to address cybersecurity in washington. i'm anna wiernicki. back to you. >> 8.21. >> and coming up on the kron 4 morning news, the recent condo collapse in florida has some people in the bay area worried and wondering could our millennium tower a collapse like that. we'll tell you why experts say it's completely different situation.
>> 24 in national news out of south florida. the death toll in the condo collapse in surfide. the surfside is now officially at 46, they recovered the remains of 10 more people from the rubble rubble just in the past 2 weeks since they've been looking. but there are still more than a 100 people unaccounted for. and as you can see, they are digging through a mound of rubble now that they have demolished the building and it's safe for the rescu rs to go in. they're still calling it a search and rescue, even though they say that it is very unlikely that anybody survived this. they didn't find any livable spaces so far in this debris now that they have been able to get to the rest of the debris. they're going to continue there. hard work of digging through looking for remains. >> and that condo building, as we know, it's been slowly sinking for years before it ultimately collapse. and that, of course, has a lot of people
concerned about san francisco's millennium tower, which is also sinking. fortunately the tower is undergoing at the moment. a structural upgrade to fix that and a structural engineer has been monitoring the tower since 2014 says the sinking in the leaving experienced by the millennium tower has not in any way compromised its stability or its safety and a lot of experts that we've spoken to agree that overall california buildings in general have a leg up on others across the country because ours are. designed to withstand earthquakes. >> here in california. we do have to design for seismic loads and those seismic floods are very large. and so they inherently create a more robust structure from the lateral perspective, a lot are loading perspective than many other locations in the united states. >> experts say we could also see more regulation once the cause of the collapse in florida is determined. >> still ahead on the kron 00:00am morning news. we're going to talk live to police
>> it 29 and the heat is common one more day, which means tomorrow. it is, john, what's the word for folks just joining us. yeah. today's the last one, guys and then it's back to that summer heat for inland valleys with daytime highs climbing well into the 90's and triple digits come the weekend. hey, at least that wasn't on the 4th of july weekend. we enjoy that we're
going to be looking outside at a little bit of cloud cover this morning. that's a sign of our last cool day that ocean cool their sweeping inland across the bay area, keeping things cool all the way into our inland valleys. so right now we're in the 50's later today. most of us are 70's 80's. only a couple of 90's in the mix after today. there's about to be a lot more of those. i'll get to that in the rest of your forecast. erica. >> thanks, john. well, no major traffic accide1ts right now. however, if you are taking i 5 80 west in oakland and trying to transition to the 24 east. one of the lanes as block. so just a heads-up could be a little slow out there. checking in on some of our drive times around the bay area interstate 6.80, from dublin to fremont. you're looking at 14 minutes and from milpitas to sunnyvale on the 2.37 a seven-minute drive time. back to you. >> a big story that oakland is talking about is how to solve the problem of violence. they
are seeing a lot of a violent crime meantime, the budget is seems to be decreasing and there are calls for people to her for the defunding of the police department joining us to talk more about that is oakland's police chief leronne armstrong. >> chief, our truck. thank you so much for joining us this morning. i know you guys had a very intense 4th of july holiday weekend, perhaps. maybe you could talk a little bit more about that too. >> yeah. we had a challenging 4th of july 7 inches. this shooting related incidents, one of which was unfortunately homicide. so we had tremendous challenges over the weekend along with excessive fireworks activity throughout the city. so it was a difficult weekend in the city of oakland. >> and you are saying actually, you're from oakland and you've never seen, you know, destruction at this level and the fireworks and everything that's going on right now. >> yeah. i mean, i'm from oakland been with the police department for over 2 decades.
department for over 2 decades. and thi 4th of july's. and i've seen particularly the celebratory gunfire. we've seen people using firearms. much more to be seen in the past and obviously that creates dangerous situations for entire community so that was concerning well, and also seeing like every city in the bay area frankly, that has sideshows you see more of those 2. >> and those have been you know, mean, they've injure a lot of people like it's likely. i haven't heard of anybody killed. there's been a lot graffiti and vandalism that goes along with that. that affects the local businesses nearby. >> unfortunately, while we were addressing the 7 shootings later that evening. we did incur a pretty large and violent side show up to 300 vehicles additional 200 it was very challenging for us as they shot in the air as they pop and as they threw objects at officers. so very
challenging for us to while still trying to manage violence at the same so we are our capacity. >> well and would it be more challenging or better solution to figure out how to do this with less money because there's been calls to take some money from the police budget and put it elsewhere mean. what's the solution? >> well, for esta solution is calling everybody in our community to stand with us and come together and unite behind gun violence in the city of oakland. that's why the saturday i'll be holding a rally at lake merritt at 12 o'clock taking a stance against violence in the city of oakland. we all want to live in a safe city. i'm asking community come out because law enforcement won't be able to do it alone. it will take the department of violence prevention the police department but also most importantly, the community. we all need to be united in our effort to live in a safe city and it starts with us saying clearly and openly that we
want people to put the guns down in the city of oakland. >> well, and i guess it's going to have to be at right with less money, potentially going the police department. you're going to need more involvement from the community to help not only solve that prevent some of these crimes. are you looking for more feedback from the community or maybe tips. what would you like the community to do. >> so. we like feedback from the community would like the to gain a relationship with the department. but also we want the community to begin to practice safety at the block level really at the community level, really organizing together to help work with the police department to address issues. it's obvious that we all have all the resources we need to address this alone. it is really going to take a collaborative effort between community and department of violence prevention. but i believe united as one city. i think we can do it. >> and is it going to take a whole new approach. like is there a re imagining that needs to happen. they're here
in how the police respond and what they do and just how the forces even put together because people don't feel comfortable coming to the police. >> yeah. and really that's what this weekend's rally is the beginning. it is beginning of developing a relationship between community and police so that they can increase their trust in law enforcement. we will also be branching out into doing a series of town hall meetings across our city. small meetings were communities. having those discussions the past police department and what kind of police department we are today. i really believe that this police department has turned a corner and we are prepared to be the police department that their community can believe in can trust. >> i wonder if you feel different than you did when you were a kid like i wonder of all kids these days feel different back in the old days when you saw a cop and you're like yay help is on the way, right. like it meant to you
great. they're here to help me. and i wonder if now the community at large has an opposite feeling and they say, oh, no, police are here. this is trouble. for me. do you think there's a it's all different now. >> well, i think there's been incidents that have happened across our country. that's had an impact on law enforcement profession as a whole. what i'm confident in the u.s. at the men and women of the local police department come to work every day and do a job. they go into some very difficult circumstances every night they do it safely and so i hope that our community recognizes that they are facing the challenge every day of keeping this community safe. and essentially we're at a point where we're just asking for the community's help and support because we are not going to be able to do this without him. >> right. i they don't want they want to see the crime stop to, i think everybody's looking for ways to to make it stop and speaking of which there was recently that horrible a shooting on the
party bus. so we love yeah, maybe there'd be an update on on that. it can you can you give us any update on solving that. >> yeah, that investigation is being led by the california highway patrol. local police department is assisting with that investigation. any additional for the update on that investigation will be released by the highway patrol. we are definitely assistant in any way that we can. >> you know, curiously during mentioned you. you've been in oakland a long time and the list of things you'd like to fix and improve is equally as long. if there was only one thing that you would be able to do in your time there as chief of police. what's the one problem that you wish was solved. by the time you were no longer in that office. >> i think the most important thing is to build trust and department. that we develop a relationship were community feels like they can trust and rely on police in the city
>> well, at great. and and i think everybody is hoping for that. terrific chief armstrong, thank you so much for joining us this morning. i hope we have continuing conversations as a lot of folks there in oakland are interested in your ideas and and hope as well that you're successful in bringing down the crime rate. >> thank you so much. thank >> thank you so much. thank you for having >> thank you so much. thank you for having all of this started when we discovered the benefits of local, raw honey for our family. and then we said "hey, you know what? this is a business right here." we went out and started to sell it. to help us get going, we got the chase business complete banking ℠ account. it's more than a bank account. it comes with quickaccept, which lets us take card payments anytime, anywhere, and get same-day deposits at no extra cost. it's more than honey. it's about building something for our family that will endure.
off in front of a local official's home in rohnert park. it was city council member, willie, lynn areas and he shared this picture of the that he found sunday night. now he wanted to ban fireworks in rohnert park. the city of talk about it, the even cancel their fireworks show this year. the biggest concern of course, is the potential for sparking a wildfire. that whole area has been extremely dry, as has been the entire bay area. but the council member says this act of vandalism seems to go beyond just protesting over that. >> sunday night there was a crime committed. someone tried to send you a message and someone trying to intimidate. if you look deeper. it's as much to do with the color of my skin that angry that type of e is not related to just fireworks. >> hopes the vandalism will reopen the conversation about race in rohnert park in the meantime, the decision over whether the city will ban fireworks going forward will be up to voters in september. we'll take a break. we'll be
more brightness through the fog genevieve the sun's get there eventually. >> it's still a little gray out there but you as the sun rises up a little bit higher things getting brighter indeed you're north calhoun. the weather center forecast today is one of our last cool ones for inland areas after today we are seeing temperatures skyrocketing for our inland cities quite hour this morning. yeah. still a little great, but you'll get there with the sunshine later on can say so much for immediate coastline, though these areas going to remain pretty foggy bayside inland areas clearing really nicely going to be looking at a good dose of sunshine later today with those 70's and 80's that we've got. i hope you enjoy it because high pressure building back in is going to block out this cool sea breeze that's been keeping us relatively cool resulting in that really warm weather. we have just around the corner. as for any advisories we have ahead of us excessive heat watches take effect friday afternoon lasting through monday evening for almost all the entire central valley and solano county as of this point, i do expect a few more colors
