11:17 pm
looked to be about a 30 ft. very well. i think it was a male. there wasn't any obvious signs of trauma like from a ship strike, but i'm not emory. mammal experts, so i'll leave that analysis today. experts hopefully, they could do a necropsy and see what killed this one. i'm wondering what the reaction was from all the boy scouts when they first spotted the whale. they're seeing the real world of nature there right in front of them, right? i mean, everybody. everybody loves whales and mammals, and i think everybody was pretty sad, but i think overall they were, they were excited to be part of being able to help get it up on the beach so that experts can come in and trying to figure out what killed this one's. well, it's now as far as i know. it's the fifth whale, and it's the second one that we've told in three weeks is that what you do? i was reading about your group. it's a very interesting group c valor. but is that one of the things that you do, which is to whales? and if so, how did you.
11:18 pm
have something that we set out to do the way that on april six were out sailing and we came across the will that had been killed and we called it into the coast guard, and about an hour later, the coast guard called back and he had the marine mammal center on the phone and marine mammal center. asked if we could go back and take some photographs and. they said that they were going to send a boat out to tow it and we actually have experienced tony big boats and everything. so i think we volunteered and we were told it. as far as a safar as we could t. and then ie morning, another boat came and we told it the rest of the way to angel island, so it's definitely not something that we set about to do, but i think we have the experience had the equipment today that we're able to help. keep it out of the navigational channels where it
11:19 pm
was a hazard and then also get it up on the beach and then tie it to the beach so that it doesn't drift off the beach until the experts. eric, i've always wondered here. oh i'm sorry. i've always wondered not go ahead. and maybe you know the answer to this. maybe you don't. but the ocean is huge, and some of these whales are being killed when they were hit by a ship wouldn't the whale see the ship and steer clear of the ship? i mean, again. i would i would pose that question to the experts. but what i think happens is the ships of this going too quickly for the whales to be able to get out of the way. some of these ships are going at 15 20 knots and i solutions is perhaps too slow the bigger container shiink thia discussion that people. having because again it's very concerning that i've been sailing three times in three weeks and two out of the three
11:20 pm
times we've now found and then towed dead whales. i mean, that's just it doesn't seem normal. eric, we appreciate you taking the time to talk with us tonight. we're gonna leave it there. thank you so much for what you do. thank you very much for having me appreciate it. oh okay. we're looking at the weather. we have a red flag warning in these areas. you could see it just feathering into solano county here up towards vallejo and that red flag warning is going to say in effect through tuesday morning, and it's really gonna be for these winds just funneling right down through the big valley for the sacramento valley and into the northern san joaquin red flag warning is a concern. and of course it does seem like, you know, fire dangers. definitely little earlier each year. it's a little earlier this year because the last two years have been dry. and so it doesn't take much when you you don't have rain, below average rainfall for two years in a row. we're in a drought, no question about it, and that certainly promotes dangerous fire conditionsthere'no fog out there, either with winds
11:21 pm
going that way, the fog kind of gets shredded apart. there might be some patches trying to show up, but the fog just get shredded. so you see where the wind contours are tomorrow morning. right around. well, actually, let's go back tomorrow morning, right about here about 89789 tomorrow morning. that's when the winds of the strongest okay and you can see the conscious look at the contours to see where the wind is, too. so ah, lot of us and we're gonna go to tuesday morning. ah lot of us. don't won't notice the wind it all and then tuesday mornings, the next sort of thing this these events overnight events and they get going they get really empowered in the early morning hours, and so that's the next one into tuesday morning, so the plan red flag warnings saves the factor tuesday. i don't think most of us won't notice the wind is what i'm getting out. no father, the coast winds are very light out there as you can see right now. 20 miles an hour sfo. that's but it's out of the west. that's not a northerly wind. current temperatures are running well ahead of where they were last night, and that yellow area to the north. that's where the winds of the strongest and that's where the air is sinking. this is the
11:22 pm
most aggressively and that's why you have the strong winds. it's a combination of things when they're sinks. it warms. that's the deal. so forecast tomorrow you're going to find temperatures in the nineties and the antioch and conquered 89 livermore and the five day forecast set you up with just more warm weather. so monday, tuesday wednesday, all warm spots upper eighties low nineties. and then the next week, and it cools off a little bit. so fire dangers up there. so be careful pay attention, and we'll see you back here soon. all right, bill. thank you. coming up in 11 30. just a few minutes away. it's sportswear, joe fonzi and jason appelbaum breakdown. leigh nfl draft as the niners make a big splash drafting trey lance, with their third pick. but spending plans to the american people why they
