list that we rode out for you of the earthquakes that struck the county this morning. all those aftershocks after the 2.6 2 aftershocks reported 10 minutes or so later than 2 hours later there was another one 30 minutes later than other one in the last one was 1.8 magnitude around 4.20 this morning. so it's been intense and that's a lot of aftershocks. we reached out to usgs to get more information about this cluster. we have some questions including which fault exactly. was it nearing closest to. and then as well as you know, is this the sign of a bigger one calming it definitely makes you nervous after experiencing even just one that biggest 1, 3.6. you start to wonder of we have a big going coming in. sure enough they had after talk after aftershock. so stay tuned. we'll get you the answers you need to know from usgs. >> this morning on the kron 4 morning news for now. i'll send it back to you guys in the studio. >> all right. thank you very much, sara. >> 6 o 4 is the time and police say the level of
illegal fireworks. this year. something they've never seen before. an undercover operation help san francisco officers and cover all of this 69 pounds of illegal fireworks that they found in the mission district officials say that each year fireworks are responsible for millions of dollars in property loss. this morning. we're taking a closer look at those illegal fireworks and what can be done to keep them out of the bay area. kron four's terisa stasio has more. all of this. >> these fireworks exploding in the skies in the east bay on july 4th captured by kron 4 leading to dangerous of fiery embers falling on to people's homes on top roofs or worse burning hands and fingers each and every one of these showy displays. >> illegal. you at least in alameda county. the amount of fireworks are going from one end of the county to the other and it was incredible. it was
it was nothing we've seen before. sergeant ray kelly with the alameda county sheriff's department and bob task force says residents continue to set off fireworks 2 days after the holiday. >> despite several high-profile bust this year for example, on wednesday, the san francisco police department released these photos showing the seizure of 69 pounds. a resident arrested in san mateo, a large cash collected after an undercover bust in walnut creek this fire ignited from fireworks. an explosion at a local apartment complex. several 100 pounds taken in and destroyed it begs the question, where are all of these illegal fireworks coming from and why can't they be stopped. we have nevada next door and a lot of the fireworks are coming from nevada. >> you know, arizona, texas and other western states and so it's a lucrative the reason they come here is because there's a market for supply
and demand. sergeant kelly says battling the illegal sales proves incredibly challenging in. but a lot of our resources were tied up with other issues during covid. crime. and, you know, trying to keep our staffing levels up mandatory overtime and the work schedule that has been put on so we did have a lot of time and resources to dedicate to doing those fireworks operations. some of those that are undercover some of the fireworks that are being offered is so dangerous and others. about the fire danger. so if you're going to do it like be smart about like don't blow yourself up. don't lose a hand or fingers. like we saw in this hockey player that was killed when firework, you know, there we see knows. critical incidents where people are. what starts out as fun ends in tragedy and theresa kron 4 news. >> will san francisco police now are searching for the person or people responsible
for this anti lgbtq graffiti that was spray painted on the side of an apartment building in the castro district. people there could only tell police that an unknown person tag side of the building and have any better description than that. but they say the person tag the building, the plant or nearby. the sidewalk out front. it all happened around midnight on july 6. the case has been handed over now to the department's special investigation division. in the north bay police are asking for more resources now to try and stop sideshows. we saw what happened over the holiday weekend on the streets there with massive sideshows that drew hundreds of people gunshots were heard. illegal fireworks were set off all across various parts of the layer there on the 4th of july and police say they have limited resources to tackle problems when they get to be this scale. they're calling on the city leaders now to help them stop these dangerous events by doing things like drafting new laws that would make spectating at these illegal sideshows also illegal. >> participants or spectators
could face up fines of up to $1000, including jail time of 6 months their vehicles impounded for 30 days. i understand that this is a large part of bay area culture however, you know our position as a police department is to protect and serve. >> well, police department believes that money from the federal government could help to. they say they like to use that money to boost staffing and create a sideshow task force. they also want to set up cameras inside show prone areas to better identify the cars that are involved. >> the future of the a's in oakland continues to hang in the balance. the proposed 12 billion dollars waterfront ballpark at howard terminal is their last best option. >> to stay. >> in the bay area in oakland. that's what the team president dave kaval says. >> but it will ultimately be up to the city council to decide if this project gets the green light negotiations
continue over the project. there are also ongoing biz and proposals for the coliseum site as well, though. >> our existing lease at the coliseum only goes through 2024 we have a situation where the facility is 10 years past its useful life. and we really have an obligation and a responsibility to get some type of resolution on this. so the raiders deal when they came back from los angeles included the city and county paying for the ballpark we're paying for the entire cost of the stadium. the a's are taking the risk. all the onsite risk. >> so he's saying there that, you know, the city sort of has nothing to lose and everything to gain by giving the a's their dream letting them build it. now the city wants the age to commit to a 9 relocation agreement that would remain valid for 45 years. >> said about 20 like maybe we
degree for 20 years, the city council set to vote the project terms. july 20 so listen to all the wrangling back yeah, because oakland doesn't want to lose another team. but it's clear that. last and i can't have been a long list. national. other cities are courting them. so state is it reasonable to assume the 4545 years. you have to promise you're not going so this is yes. is all the stuff that they're trying to deal with. we shall see. again, july 20 the big vote date will keep you covered. >> let's go to the north bay now where new irrigation restrictions have been put into place now adopted by the marin municipal water district summer in county is classified under the exceptional drought category. and you can see in this video. exactly why exceptionally absolutely need these reservoirs like puddles lowest levels. we've seen. >> decades and decades all
right. give me the damage. one daughter one day a week. you can use spray irrigation like sprinklers. one day a and only 2 days a week. a new drip irrigation for like plants or things like that. well, i have a hose so well. i was trying to keep my plants live just with twice a week, a little spray now. i do once a week, once a week for the law in any way. county, as we know, has already been declared a water shortage emergency they set a goal for everybody to reduce their water usage by 40%. and this is going to help encourage people to one of the thing i do, by the way, with the plants since i don't have the strip saying that he's setting up a winner. i just put the bucket in the shower and then i get a little water and then i can't because so tip right great water to already producing and everybody what everybody has a james, one good still ahead on the kron 00:00am morning news, a young man from the east bay. >> he died on a camping trip and now his family has a lot
people to discover other modes of transportation or rediscover. i guess i should say, because a lot of them now turning back to taxes, e-commerce company rakuten reports prices for uber and lyft rides and they say that prices have spiked 40% nationwide and flywheel, which is the on-demand taxi cab app that was created to combat and compete with uber and lyft. well, it works with most cap companies in san francisco and the president. a flywheel says that longer wait times and surge pricing with uber and lyft is pushing people back at the caps. >> we've always had a huge flywheel app users when uber and lyft for surge pricing. but now it's you know, maybe triple think uber and lyft probably are going to readjust this surge pricing because they have been so many complaints about it but until that happens here, i think taxi drivers are in for good period of time. flywheel. >> rides are price like normal yellow taxis. they operate at steady rates following an
initial fair. a $3.50, sometimes depending word on. i told you go to the airport was the same or cheaper depending on what time i was going with. just regular cab. you know what, they'll just a little bit investigation. you'll see the math kind of works in your favor one where the other hand, the cheaper option, 6.16 right now want to get a look at the weather because we are starting now warm-up today. erica. and day one of our warming trend is going to get hotter this weekend. >> but currently we are seeing some low clouds, especially here in san francisco should clear up this afternoon. it's going to be a beautiful out in the east bay mostly sunny skies. but warmer compared to yesterday, some places about 15 degrees, hotter than yesterday. and we're not even at our hottest point at for the week as for what's causing not. it's because this high pressure is building to the east of us. we're also going to see dry conditions which is going to cause extreme fire danger. so temperatures in san francisco today above normal.
we're looking at lower 70's along the coast, low 60's to upper 60's out in half moon bay 77 in millbrae and burlingame today. as for saying, carlos down to mountain view. we're looking at mid 80's actually going to see it warmer in the south bay 90's today in campbell in saratoga as well as los gatos and morgan hill mid-nineties out in pleasanton 97 in livermore lower 80's in hayward, mid 80's in orinda 84 san leandro today 91 out in antioch. you can see temperatures warm around vacaville actually supposed to hit about a 100 degrees today out there. napo be around 90 degrees as well as santa rosa mill valley. we're looking at lower 80's today. let's get a check in on our roads right now and see if there's major accidents that could be causing some delays. well, here on 5.80 east near santa rita road. we did have a traffic collision with a truck
and a sedan. so one of the lanes are still closed are working to get a tow truck out there. so could be a little slow. again, this is in dublin. as for the san mateo bridge right looking good. both directions as well. see high rise. i don't see any issues there should be pretty quick. heading out to the peninsula. 8.80, to menlo park on the down barton bridge. it's going to be 12 minutes to drive down there and on westbound 24 from walnut creek to 5.80, you're looking at 11 minutes. no delays there on 4 from antioch to concord. it's about a 22 minute drive time and on 6.80 pacheco to danville looking at 12 minutes. james and ari, i'm going to send it back to you. >> 6 19 and in national news today, president biden is supposed to speak about afghanistan just days after american troops pulled out of their main military base or dc correspondent anna wiernicki
has the very latest now from washington. >> more than 90% of american troops have left afghanistan. well ahead of president biden's deadline of september 11. we went to afghanistan because of the horrific attack that happened 20 years ago. that can not explain why we should remain their president biden says he plans to keep 650 troops in the country primarily to help secure diplomats located at the u.s. embassy. nobody thought this is a good idea. but some republicans, including texas congressman michael mccaul say they're concerned as the taliban gains more grounds in the area. i've concerned that we will be going back afghans are going to decide their future, what they what they want. president biden has said that the u.s. will continue to support afghanistan but state department spokesperson ned price says ultimately it's time for other countries in the region to step up many of afghanistan's neighbors have been happy to the united in
the united states alone if there is to be a just and durable settlement and a comprehensive cease-fire. >> it needs to be supported supported by afghanistan's neighbors and we hope to see the possibly. >> and before president biden makes his remarks later this afternoon. the white house says he will first meet with his national security team in the situation room to receive an update on the progress of this withdrawal. for now live in washington. i'm anna wiernicki back to you. all right. and thank you very much. >> time now 6.21 and coming up on the kron 4 morning news bay area rent prices are on the rise again, not what you wanted to hear. but there might be some good news. some experts are saying they won't go back to the pre pandemic go back to the pre pandemic levels. we'll see. oroweat small slice. i wonder if this has the same quality ingredients as the original whole grains bread?
delicia: this is where all our recycling is sorted -- 1.2 million pounds every day, helping to make san francisco my name's lucas. the greenest big city in america. but that's not all you'll find here. there are hundreds of good-paying jobs, with most new workers hired from bayview-hunter's point. we don't just work at recology, we own it, creating opportunity and a better planet. now, that's making a difference.
>> 6.24 for your money. bay area. rents are actually down about 15% now compared to last year but has since the pandemic has started to ease. the prices have started to climb back up again. come for us. charles clifford takes a closer look at the market. >> well, so far this year. rents are up a bit here in the bay area. but that increases starting from an overall drop. now during the pandemic prices. rental prices around
the bay area are down about 15 to 20%. and even though they're going up again, it's unclear exactly how high they could go. so far in 2000, 21 rents are up across the bay area compared to last year. san francisco rental prices are up about 5%. san jose is up 3% in oakland is up about 2 and a half percent. what's unclear at this point is how high rents will eventually go we're clearly seeing some growth. jeff andrews is a data journalist with some for dot com which tracks enlist rental properties. >> he expects that rental prices will continue to climb but may not get as high as they were before the pandemic. he says that many people have permanently left the bay area specially tech workers and that they may not return. we're not sure how broadly tech companies are going to top work from home policies. >> and if that is very broad and people don't return to the bay area and the same members that they are and say new york city, we might see the
pandemic as an that permanently lowered bay area. the real test of what will happen with the rental market could come this fall when many companies plan to reopen their offices. >> and recall workers prices could continue to climb. until then. but people don't come back in large numbers. prince could flatten out or possibly even drop. and finally, andrew says it's important to remember that even before the pandemic, people we're starting to leave the bay area and rents were starting to drop and that nothing has really happened that would reverse that trend to get back to the highs that the bay area saw several years ago. but for now in san francisco, charles clifford kron 4 news. >> a high school football team is remembering one of their own after a deadly accident in lake in the live in marin county with details on the investigation. did you know that your toughest cleaning problems

boy was ejected from the pickup and died at the scene and the family attorney. they filed a lawsuit against tesla saying the driver and the vehicle. it was in autopilot and they both failed. they say the auto pilot system and the driver failed ramp proffer properly to the traffic conditions. experts say the tesla can do more to teach drivers that the autopilot feature does not mean that the driver is free to do other things. the driver has to remain. >> in control of the vehicle paying attention and the and alert and the drivers responsible. the system is not capable of operating without human supervision. and this is something that. a lot of tesla fans don't seem to understand. >> the national highway traffic safety administration is now requiring manufacturers of cars that have these automatic driving systems to report crashes and experts say that that should lead to improved regulations such as requiring tesla to implement driver monitoring systems. san
francisco police are asking the public for information about a shooting that sent a 16 year-old to the hospital. the teenager was hit by a bullet while riding on a muni bus on treasure island. the teen was taken to the hospital and treated for injuries are not life threatening and no arrest has been made. >> well, california's attorney general has announced a lawsuit against google which claims that the company has violated state and federal antitrust laws through its google play store. according to the lawsuit, google entered into agreements with smartphone manufacturers to make sure that google play is the only app store that's built into their systems. the lawsuit is part of a multi-state action that's being brought against the company. google play store comes pre installed on nearly all android devices you can't delete it. so it's a permanent feature. google has denied the allegations saying that the lawsuit is without merit. former president donald trump is taking on 3 of the country's biggest tech companies. he's suing facebook, twitter and youtube

their platforms the way they want and the courts have upheld that section 2.30 of the communications decency act allows social media companies to remove posts found to be obscene or excessively violent as long as they're acting in good faith even after being banned from social media. trump has continued to spread lies about the 2020 election. baselessly claiming that he won. even though officials, including his own attorney general found no evidence of mass voter fraud. not only what they less than an hour after making the announcement at his uedminster, new jersey golf course trump's team began sending out e-mails fundraising appeals linked to the lawsuits legal observers estimate that combined the former president, his political campaigns and the trump organization have filed more than 4,000 suits over the last 3 decades strikes me as more of a way to get media hype it does step. he's filing
meritorious lawsuits. typically that courts dismissed similar suits and experts say these 2 are likely dead on arrival. he's implying here >> the twitter and facebook and google have violated the first amendment. by the first amendment doesn't apply to twitter google and facebook because they're private companies. >> that was tom negovan reporting the republican national committee, by the way, has also sent out a fundraising appeal mentioning the lawsuit. so far no response, though, from twitter, facebook or from google. >> time now is 6.41 as search teams on the site of the collapsed condo in surfside, florida are now shifting to a recovery operation. they are sure that there is no one alive to rescue at this point. they finish looking through the areas of debris did not find any hope there they did recover the remains of 10 more people yesterday. that's the
