6:02 am
description to pass along to the public about this shooter or shooters are no motive behind this. they don't know if this was random. if it was road rage or in fact, she was targeted. but the bottom line is if you're going through that area at this time. yes, they had to shut it down for quite some time to collect evidence and talk to witnesses. but i drove through that area a little bit earlier and it is clear, but what is not clear is why did this happen in the first place. very little information about the woman. obviously that's still private, but they don't believe at this particular point that she started this this chain of events where the shots ring out. but again, the investigation is very early. we just had to change the ship to now try to get more information from the chp headquarters. it was this headquartered here that rushed to the scene to take care of the woman back to you. all right. thanks a lot. we'll. >> time now is 6.

6:04 am
of the end of the pandemic. >> what's now and son. but for some, the emergency authorization was viewed as potentially reckless kaiser family foundation data from december of 2020 shows 39% of those polled said they want to wait and see before receiving the vaccine as of june. the number was down to 10%. new kff polling shows that 31% of unvaccinated they would be more likely to get a vaccine that's received full fda approval that number climbs to nearly 50% among adults who previously said they wanted to wait and see. some people even the individuals who gotten vaccinated have been scared about. >> the effects of this emergency approval for the current vaccine. so i think for a lot of people they are having a healthy sense of skepticism and waiting for that approval from science. and while many may soon choose to get vaccinated. others may not be given an option according to surgeon general doctor murthy full federal

6:15 am
creek. westwood and pine town and then there's the caldor fire. there's the one southwest of lake tahoe, a 104,000 acres has now burned containment is only at 5%. this has been going for a week now and strong winds to that made the fire jump over highway 50 over the weekend. so got closer to homes. plus it is closed down a 46 mile stretch of highway 50. that's closed in both directions. sly park road and the 5089 roundabout and myers. you can't get through there and they haven't said when they reopen at the fire has already destroyed over that area. the town of grizzly flats. at least 328 structures have been destroyed and another 13,000 are still in harm's way. >> well, the bay area air quality management district now issuing an air quality advisory for today. and this comes as well. we still have smoke from those wildfires lingering here in the bay area
6:16 am
skies and since some of the video was shot recently showing the pollution levels now it isn't expected to exceed federal health standards. so no spare the air alert is in effect, but that advisory is so you're being recommended. if you have respiratory issues to avoid being outside as much as possible. again, it could be a little difficult for you. >> yeah. yesterday was a little better what friday and saturday. not. so it looks like thankfully because it's not as bad. we won't have a spare. >> the air alert, john. so a touch better yeah. it's going to be a lot like yesterday today, we're still going to be looking at some moderate pockets out there. >> but honestly, what most of us will be holding on to is the blue skies much as we did see for your sunday. so we've enjoyed this backing off of the haze also getting a little bit cooler over the weekend. we're going to keep that trend going into today as well. you look outside this morning at the exploratorium show. some low gray. it's nice to know that what you're looking out there this morning is just a marine layer that we're seeing having pushed in from the coastline and for the most
6:17 am
part, this is being associated with some much cleaner air that's pushed in from the west too. looking at your air quality map. the worst of smoke is definitely centered. well, up to our north. there will be pockets of green on this map indicating that moderate air quality, especially for the north bay at times this afternoon that will show up in air quality advisories across the bay area. really just something to know for most sensitive groups. most of us are going to be looking at much improved conditions today and inviting one to be stepping back outside. i'd still keep the workout going in out indoors. but you can definitely get out there. at least run those errands and enjoy some of the sunshine winds from the coastline will continue and actually intensify into the afternoon. this not only filter some cleaner air of in. but it's also going to heap our daytime highs. pretty moderated. that means our inland areas not too terribly hot for your monday 60's for your city is right along the coastline 70's for most of our bayshore areas millbrae at 72 burlingame. 73 redwood city

6:22 am
states now have an entire country as a sanctuary from which to do so. president biden, however, is pushing back against that criticism in fact, yesterday. he says he believes history will show that he made the right call as far as terror threats. he says the u.s. closely monitoring all threats. >> and anyone who was being evacuated from afghanistan is being first transported to a 3rd party country to be vetted in process before coming to countries like the u.s. as refugees for now in washington. raquel martin, back to you. thanks for count them. >> time now 6.22, coming up, a mountain lion sighting on the peninsula. we're going to have a look at more of this video showing the big cat. we'll be right back.
