4:01 pm

4:02 pm
in the last two years we lost about 2000 students and about 65% of those students. that left the school district did so because their families moved out of the bay area completely less students mean less funding from the state. plus, the district has aging facilities that cost $900 million to fix. it's why the district is proposing closing four schools, relocating facilities and changing boundaries and programs, while the district understands the loss school closures bring. they hope the public can see what can be gained from the potential changes. a part of this plan is to bring. t k and preschool to all of our elementary schools and have modernized facilities where we don't have to worry about broken heaters and fire alarms. we want them to listen to us for the first time, really pay attention to what we have to say. we have been saying the same thing through all these town hall meetings. we have not been heard. the union member. you just heard there at the end, says that they just learned
4:03 pm
about this plan to close schools in the last six weeks during public input. the district, though, says it has been working on this plan for at least two years, coming to the table and trying to look at ways that they can best address this declining enrollment issue. they initially had eight schools on the list. they have now brought it down to four possible closures. and also had 10 facilities that they wanted to close that has been reduced to eight. so tonight's special board meeting starts at 6 30 again, this group behind us will march to the district headquarters in a show of support, and there are a number of things that could happen tonight. the district could take action and say yes, we would like to close some schools. they could make changes to the revised recommendations or they could take no action at all. heather alex. alright cristina rendon live in hayward. we await the decision here from the district. christina. thank you. a magnitude 3.9 earthquake shook the san ramon area at around 11 43 this morning. the usgs says the minor quake was centered near crow canyon country club on the california's fault. it was felt as far north

4:18 pm
today. this is where a magnitude 3.9 earthquake hit just a few miles south of here in the san ramon area. ktvu meteorologists mark tamayo here now and mark. that quake was felt as far south as santa cruz. yes that's right. even other portions of the bay area as well, alex out toward the peninsula now toward san francisco, which is what? you would expect that the magnitude 3.9 initially this was a four oh, then down with 38. and then right now, the current the current magnitude 3.9. so as we take a look at this map here, this is a did you feel it map? you can report it on the usgs. your experience and basically what you love with your report kind of helps this map. being produced so you can see the map here the coverage out toward the east bay out down toward the santa clara valley doubt toward even san francisco. most areas reporting light too. weak shaking, but a few areas reported some moderate activity as well, especially closer to the epicenter, so once again amount to 3.9 that happened at
4:19 pm
11 43 this morning, some aftershocks to reported 2.6 and a magnitude three point oh, so quickly that the main shock happened and then within a few minutes, a couple aftershocks report that strongest being a three point. you as you know, we have a lot of earthquake faults here in the bay area, those red lines correspondent the earthquake earthquake faults and looks like this is on the calderas fault with that magnitude 3.9 earlier today. as far as the weather. we're showing you this a lot of clouds up toward north and a few high clouds crossing the bay area right now, we will thicken up the cloud cover in advance of a system that will approach our coastline. for tomorrow. as we take a look at the satellite will show you some of the fog. we still have some dead patches this morning, but not nearly as widespread as say yesterday and also into monday morning. as far as the wind speech made notes. a change in the wind patterns see more of that north northeast flow that is a dry wind direction and breezy up in the hills. we could see some stronger winds as we head toward your saturday forecast once

4:24 pm
hearing the sound of progress, so yeah. and we're seeing that the tower cranes or in the middle of downtown berkeley, and it was just sort of stand on the street corner mayor and every direction you look, there's a new housing project. this this corner is really the epicenter of some of the changes that we're seeing in downtown berkeley. down the street. we have. 142 unit affordable housing project, the largest amount of permanent supportive housing for the homeless. and then right here we have. this i. almost 200 unit, um, market rate housing projects, which actually encompasses the entire city block. let's talk about the long term goal for the city of berkeley. you know, there's this regional mandate. where the city needs to build close to 9000 new housing units in just the next decade. yes is that realistic to do and how do you get that done? it's not only realistic, but i think it's necessary. you know, we not only need housing for the people that are here, people that are experiencing homelessness, students working
4:25 pm
families, you know, you know, almost every week. people are being priced out of our city because of the rising cost of housing. i think brickley is really at a. crossroads and, uh, you know, we're facing major challenges our climate crisis or housing, crisis or homeless crisis. all of them are interrelated. we know that building dense infill housing. helps reduce car trips, reduces greenhouse gases and helps address our broader climate crisis. it also helps address the humanitarian crisis we're seeing in our streets so. i think we can meet that goal. i want to exceed that goal. that's the biggest challenge that we face is we just don't have homes for people and. um it's a humanitarian crisis and we have to we have to act urgent. we have to recognize the systemic racism also underlie some of our housing and land use policies, and so we did take a important step earlier this year to say that we're going to end exclusionary zoning. single family zoning and allow multi family housing in every part of our city by next year, and that
4:26 pm
is actually one of the things we're focused on. as we're updating our housing element. we think that can provide hundreds, if not thousands of new units. in every part of our city while we're also looking at building at our bart stations building close to our campus and downtown area. how do you make sure that there is equity in terms of where these projects are located in the city that they're not just that we don't have just new construction projects in less affluent parts of the city. well, some of it is mandated by state law. we have to quote affirmatively further fair housing in our housing policies. and so that's going to require that we look at single family neighbourhoods and allowing multi family housing in those neighborhoods. berkeley has already taken a step in that direction of the recent passage of senate bill nine by the state legislature. i think also, there's a step in that direction. but i think we're gonna have to look at you know where can we accommodate those 9000 units in berkeley right no? and then where can we, um. where? canada where should we add additional housing? and really, we're looking at every
4:27 pm
every major street in our city. we're looking at our bart stations were looking our downtown. we're looking at close to campus. you have neighborhoods that traditionally had single family homes. now they have multi unit complex is larger, larger apartment buildings. how do you respond to people who are, you know, might be concerned about how their the character of their neighborhood. might change as a result of all this new housing coming in. i mean, we're already seeing some of that in some of the conversations that we've been having around our mandates and exclusionary zoning and looking at our housing element. change is hard. but change has to has to happen. and it's a question of how we can bring our community along in that conversation to help shape our future, you have to double the pace of approvals for new construction in the city to reach this goal. what needs to be changed in terms of the housing regulations to make that? some of this is already happening by the state. um things like senate bill nine. but charge allowing things to be approved over the counter. but i
4:28 pm
do think we have to look at how we can make it faster. um and. more predictable for people to build housing in our city. think that's been one of the, um, one of the disincentives for people wanting to build in berkeley is. the time and the uncertainty of our process really seen a real sea change in the conversation and housing in berkeley over the last few years, because i think everyone recognizes that the status quo is not working. and that we have to do things differently. later tonight, i will be one of the moderators for mayor, adding in state of the city conversation, i'll be joined by reporter rachel swan from the san francisco chronicl. and we will be discussing of course, housing along with other important issues facing people in berkeley. that gets started at six o'clock tonight, and it will be live streamed at jesse at bergen dot com slash s. o t. c. great conversation there. with the mayor looking forward to tonight's meeting. other prices at the gas pump are

4:32 pm
paying for 82 a gallon for regular up from 4 70 a week ago, 4 62 a month ago and a buck and a half more than a year ago u c. berkeley haas energy economist severin bornstein says. californians currently paid 30 cents a gallon more than the average state, which just might be illegal. california really needs to dig into this and find out what happening, and the state government just hasn't seemed interested and digging into it since crude oil hit a pandemic low of about $30 a barrel. opec has rocketed oil back up to $80 and the extra $50 per barrel means another dollar and a quarter or so on our price at the pump ride sharing drivers take a huge hit and when the price of gasoline goes up by a dollar, or two per gallon, they see that directly in their personal income. here's what one rideshare driver told us back in june, when prices were much
4:33 pm
lower than now. for gas they $50 per day. on gasoline. that's why a lot of drivers there don't want to keep driving. that's why we are short of drivers. companies with fleets of cars and trucks are feeling. it example. based cities produce has a big fleet of delivery trucks are fuel prices just the last year 14 months have gone up 45% it's hurt my distance. i cannot expand my growth with the cost of the equipment and the fuel the way it is right now. airlines are paying a lot more for fuel but must pay to fly and can and will raise prices, especially when demand is high. but they also got a huge bailout payment from the government. so the airlines actually came through this overall. okay? and you're. paying for all of it. tom vacar ktvu, fox two news. lingering concerns about
4:34 pm
inflation pushed stocks lower today despite some strong corporate earnings reports, the dow dropped 211 points. the nasdaq lost 52. the s and p was down just over 12 points for more on these latest figures were joined by managing director of the mcbride group james mcbride. james always a pleasure to see you here, boy. we just can't catch a break the pandemic brought on major economic damage and now inflation. the consumer price index, which measures prices paid by the typical consumer is up. more than 6% over the past year. what do you make of it? well, i think it's related to the pandemic pandemic seriously disrupted the global supply chain supply and demand are way out of whack since the economy came back demand is there it's pent up. people are trying to buy things, but they can't find the things to buy. so i think that's the basic cost. for this. it was a pandemic induced supply chain disruption that's going to take awhile and fortunately to resolve itself. okay so the highest inflation
4:35 pm
rate in more than 30 years you just talked about, you know, a couple of factors that you believe are contributing to the price hikes. but but james how much of this is also about businesses that were hit hard by the pandemic, restoring prices that they slashed earlier in the pandemic to survive? well i think that has something to do with it the business of trying to make up for lost time, that's for sure. and you've seen it. they've tried to provide services in different ways. like, for example, the restaurants that have outdoor dining that didn't exist before. so businesses are doing all they can to recoup their losses. there's no question about that. but the big thing i think, is just to remember that this is temporary, and it's really important that the government and businesses not over iraq. the supply chain issues will be resolved and the economy will keep up his head of steam. the inflation seems bad, but it will go away. it is temporary in spite of. all the hysteria that we hear about inflation being rampant. that's just not the case. it is uncomfortably high
4:36 pm
inflation right now. you said it won't stick around forever. but how long do you anticipate it to last? well it's probably going to take a year, maybe more of us for the supply chain issues to be resolved. but one thing we can do is we can look at the bond market. you know, there's an old saying in my business that the bond market rules the world and the bond market would have higher yields if they thought that inflation was going to continue if it was going to be rampant, like a lot of people are saying, but if you look at like the all important 10 year treasury yield, it's about 1.6% today. that's about where it was back in march, so the bond market is telling us that this inflation talk is really a head fake. if it wasn't the bond yields will be going up for treasuries and corporate bonds. okay so in the meantime, investors boy, it seems as though they don't like what they're seeing out there. well, you know, the stock market has had one of its best years in a long time with some of the major averages of over 20% this is really been quite a spectacular
4:37 pm
or in the stock market. and i think it's stock market as sort of earned its reputation as being a forward are leading economic indicator. the stock market was telling us that the economy is going to come back, and that's exactly what happens in the stock market still looks pretty good still looks pretty strong and the step backs that we're seeing seem to be temporary. i certainly don't think that next year is going to be as good as this year, which was spectacular. but the stock market is telling us that these issues will be resolved. don't overreact. don't raise interest rates, let the supply and demand moderate come back into balance, and things will probably be okay as much as it hurts when we fill up our gas. but yeah, fill up our cars with gas. it is a little painful. you know, we're having to pay so much more for so many things, but i am optimistic. james, you said that you don't expect this to last. much longer, hopefully about a year, which is which is certainly good news. jason bride really appreciate you coming on today. thank you. thank you, heather. a man who authorities
4:38 pm
say may have been killed by his cell mate at santa rita jail in dublin, has been identified by his mother, christy, miles told ktvu the man who was found unresponsive in his cell and died on monday was her son 27 year old devin darrell west. the alameda county sheriff's office is investigating the death as a homicide. also on monday, another inmate at the jail was found dead in his cell. authorities say it appears the inmate died of natural causes. that man's name has not been released. grade school kids on the peninsula making history today, walking peruvian is one of the best things that i could do for my school right now. up, see how these students are honoring a key figure in the fight to desegregate america's schools. at a barrier weather lots of sunshine today, but i'm tracking a system that will soon boost our rain chances. we'll have more on that system and your weekend forecast coming up in a little bit.

4:44 pm
be changing, but we are not expecting much at all. here is the projections here. what are the forecast models showing you some rain chances up in the north bay special to our north up towards mendocino county, but down towards south down towards san jose. morgan hill and gilroy just a chance or trace amounts or 0.1. in the meantime, we are tracking at cloud cover just offshore, so we will definitely thicken up the cloud cover in advance that two front which is still developing in the pacific. as becoming closer. you can see the fog pattern from this morning. most of the fog coverage out toward the central valley, but things clearing up nicely into the afternoon hours current numbers out there right now we have san francisco 63 napa 61 livermore in the upper fifties. so already a bit of a chill in the air for this evening, and we're checking our live camera looking out toward the oakland alameda estuary here a bit of some haze. in the distance, and you can still see overall mostly clear skies, though up above so kind of a fairly pleasant evening for tonight for this evening, and you can't see that next system coming onboard for friday, so
4:45 pm
there's that front that this is what the deal for today less of fog coverage, more sunshine into the afternoon hours, and then for your thursday will definitely bring in some more cloud cover and then the chance of some showers as we head into. friday primarily friday morning. so here's the forecast model. as you can see, as we put this into motion, you'll see this is tomorrow morning. eight o'clock already. some cloud cover throughout the afternoon hours. stay by five o'clock. there's a chance of a sprinkle but mostly cloudy skies and then the main activity moves in late thursday night into friday morning, but this front kind of just falls apart. over the bay area, and it doesn't last for long. it's going to quickly move out this weekend. we dry and it will be sunny, especially by sunday forecast eyes forward tomorrow will be in the sixties across most neighborhoods once again some patches. of some dense fog. mostly cloudy skies and look ahead. there's that one rain cloud for your friday into the weekend, we could be talking about some stronger winds, especially for the berry hills. maybe gusts topping 30 miles an hour, maybe approaching 40 miles an hour. and then into early
4:46 pm
next week, partly sunny skies as we look ahead towards thanksgiving, it looks dry. but sometime during the weekend beyond thanksgiving, there's a chance we could see a wet weather pattern return, so just get ready. it's still a long ways away, but something we're watching beyond thanksgiving. mark thank you. campaign is underway to spend more money on water projects, including desalination plants all across california. supporters need nearly one million valid signatures to put the proposal on the state ballot next year. the water infrastructure funding act cost for california to put aside 2% of the general fund, or $4 billion annually for water projects that would include building new dams and recycled water plants, as well as upgrading reservoirs and canals. a recent count of monarch butterflies in central california shows there are more than 50,000 monarchs this year compared to fewer than 2000 last year. during last year's winter heatwave, scientists say large populations of monarch

4:48 pm
we meet the hero, the all-new nissan frontier hero faces seemingly impossible challenge. tension builds... the plot twist the hero prevails in hollywood, this would be the end. but our here, we are just getting started. introducing the all-new nissan frontier. there's a different way to treat hiv. it's once-monthly injectable cabenuva. cabenuva is the only once-a-month, complete hiv treatment for adults who are undetectable. cabenuva helps keep me undetectable. it's two injections, given by a healthcare provider once a month. hiv pills aren't on my mind. i love being able to pick up and go. don't receive cabenuva if you're allergic to its ingredients or taking certain medicines, which may interact with cabenuva. serious side effects include allergic reactions post-injection reactions,
4:49 pm
liver problems,...and depression. if you have a rash and other allergic reaction symptoms, stop cabenuva and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have liver problems or mental health concerns, and if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or considering pregnancy. some of the most common side effects include injection site reactions, fever, and tiredness. if you switch to cabenuva, attend all treatment appointments. with once-a-month cabenuva, i'm good to go. ask your doctor about once-monthly cabenuva. their booster shots, especially if they're planning to gather with friends and family this holiday season, the state has now updated its guidelines to make every adult eligible for boosters here in our state. joining us now to talk more about the booster rollout is ucsf associate division chief of infectious diseases dr monica gandhi. dr. gandhi always appreciate your time. thank you. i want to get to sort of the
4:50 pm
difficulty that a lot of people are having just just making an appointment to get a booster dose in a moment here but as we head into the holidays. explain to everyone why you believe it is so important to get those boosters before you go to those gatherings with friends and family. well one problem is that people have the fda is not yet approved this for all populations and so absolutely will increase your antibodies. it will probably keep. other people safer because you'll have higher antibodies but without the benefit of proven benefit and transmission or reduction in severe disease. i'm not sure the fda is gonna prove this for everyone. so that's one complication. right? people have a harder time getting appointments their meeting tomorrow, though, to talk about it. um only three states have been pushing boosters for all as opposed to selected populations, which the fda had approved prior to this. so on the other hand, what to do about holidays? it's it is nice that people are they
4:51 pm
should be able to gather and the good thing about what we're seeing with cases right now, and we can talk about this is that in highly vaccinated regions, hospitalizations are staying very low. yeah and that's certainly good news and this this would be one of those highly vaccinated regions, righ? right right now. what if someone is trying to make an appointment to get one of the booster doses and these are sort of the anecdotes that we're hearing right now, but people are either going on to the states my turn website or maybe to a pharmacy website, and they're being asked if they are at high risk for covid, or if they have underlying conditions. what do you recommend people do? how do you how do you navigate the questions that are being asked right now? you know, given that the guidelines still remain pretty narrow. yeah the guidelines are still narrow. and so unless you sort of, um, taste something inaccurate on the on the little clicking boxes right now, it's going to be harder to get a booster again. i think we have plenty of supply. that isn't a problem. and so it really will probably be, um, i really do think the fda has to meet. um and confirm that it's
4:52 pm
available for everyone for this to be easy forever to get. you could certainly go get it and kind of say that you're in a high risk group. but right now we're going by fda guidelines. and as you point out here, the fda looking and considering the idea of boosters for all coming up at a policy meeting tomorrow, the cdc looking at the same thing as well, do you think sort of broadly speaking, we have so much confusion about. who can get a booster shot who can't get a booster shot? you know, did did we make the guidelines from the outset for these boosters too narrow and too complicated so that not enough people are getting them? you know, i think we should have either done it for all or not. and i will say that if you listen to the september 17th vaccine advisory committee meeting on the first discussion of boosters, they have really good reasons not to recommend it for everyone. 74 studies around the world showing the two does vaccines are preventing severe disease and death by 90% persistent. it's
4:53 pm
even there was new york city data new york state data that showed only those over 65 were having any waning effectiveness. so they we've made their decisions for reason over 65. and there's so much back and forth, with some officials saying this, and some officials saying this that at this point, the fda is probably going to say get up for everyone. and then what would i recommend? personally i'm still really with the fda and the cdc. hcps original recommendations. my father has gotten boosted, but, um, i don't think the younger people have family needs to. so you're seeing all this confusion it play out in real time. there's been nothing more confusing than what the us did twisters. yes, well, the fda and the cdc and important decision upcoming here on booster doses, we'll see what they decide really appreciate your time. and thanks for weighing in today, dr monica gandhi from ucsf always appreciate it. take care. well we all know the real estate market has gone through the roof over the last year, coming up the latest trend for house hunters amid growing inflation.
