4:09 pm
the announcement comes after some reassuring data. focusing on children from six months to five years old that off in a study of more than 6700 kids, moderna says it's vaccine was about 40% effective in preventing a covid infection in children under five. that's on par with the level of protection adult vaccines provide against the omicron strain. what's most important is that if we have a safe vaccine that provides great protection against serious illness, and i think that that's very welcome news. dr jake scott is an infectious disease physician with stanford healthcare right now, there is no covid vaccine available for children under five fighter does have a shot approved for 5 to 11 year olds and it requested emergency use authorization for its under five vaccine back in february fighter then pulled back that request after researchers found it didn't produce enough of an immune response in young children. the dough seeing i think is has been a bit of a challenge, and these studies are also being done during different variants that
4:10 pm
are dominating, so it's a it's a moving target. the timeline now for any vaccine to become available for the youngest americans. sometime this spring , moderna has to submit its application. then an fda and ce panel of experts will have to review and approve. in the meantime, physicians say there are other ways to protect younger children against covid. the best way to protect them is to surround them with people who are also vaccinated. moderna says it will also be asking the fda to approve its vaccine for kids ages. 6 to 11 years old and it is also in the process of testing a covid booster shot for children as young as six months old. in the newsroom. ali rasmus ktvu, fox two news. well, homes just ripped apart. cars flipped upside down. we're going to go live to new orleans, where tornado havoc in an area that was damaged years ago by hurricane katrina. and coming up in 4 30. her removal caused major backlash. then you development today with the bark board member who was forced from

4:14 pm
their homes, just trying to pick up the pieces of what last night's twister roared through. i got a warning on my telephone , and it apparently had an exclamation point. next to it instead of a question mark or something my daughter told me that meant it was for real. people say they only had minutes to prepare the tornado warning maybe three minutes before it actually hit. we went into the bathroom and sat down close the doors and all and you know, we could all of a sudden, you know, within minutes or seconds. just hear hear things rumbling like a freight train was running through and feel the vibration. they communities of araby, louisiana and saint bernard parish just outside new orleans, are still recovering from past storms like hurricane ida just seven months ago in january, they say damage wasn't as severe as this tornado. but roofs and home foundations were still under repair. going through katrina and some people. well, that item and we escaped ida pretty unscathed. but this is insane. and now they are looking to recover what this tornado
4:15 pm
took away. it's more like a child had a temper tantrum and just started kicking over his lego set. strong stuff everywhere. i just don't think i've ever seen. i mean katrina move cars with water, but to see when you pick up vehicle off throw in the middle of the street. i've got to break them all. i can see those right now. my car ended up upside down on risk of those streets. some survivors say they don't know where to begin with recovery efforts because they have experience with hurricanes, but tornadoes are unchartered territory. just getting my building into the windows boarded up and all that is the biggest thing. i had no idea. ever been through something like this. so far, there has been one death reported and several injuries. power has not yet been restored to this area. but crews are working on that for these residents in arabic. louisiana joy addison ktvu. fox two news to see that happening to that area all over again, joy. thank you. well from tornadoes.
4:16 pm
hurricanes two house fires volunteers from the american red cross are there to help victims pick up the pieces, and today the organization is holding its annual giving day drive. get his alex savage talked with an official about the many ways this organization provides support and assistance for people affected by disasters, big and small. it's hard to believe that every eight minutes the american red cross does respond to a disaster here in the united states, and so it really does take an army of volunteers that really focused on providing comfort, providing hope to those who are in need, and when they do reach that critical time, and so really today being are giving day here for the american red cross. we're really encouraging people to support our disaster efforts by either donating, of course, can donate at red cross .org. forward slash giving day but also volunteering and volunteering is such a critical aspect of what we do. 90% of all of our work that's accomplished here at the american red cross
4:17 pm
is done by volunteers and, of course, that disaster and which is going to come. not not if, but when is an important component of that? what when we have a major disaster, which, as you point out, it's only a matter of time. but you know you're talking about something like a major earthquake. a large wildfire that displaces a number of people. what typically are the most pressing needs from the standpoint of the red cross? so i mean, just mentioned volunteering. of course, that's an incredible component of it. but really, it is, i think, just just doing all that we can to prepare folks for that time of disaster ahead of time. we do a lot of work in that space with respect to force anything from home fires to earthquakes, and really helping to get the word out there to make sure that people know what it takes to react appropriately in the time of the disaster, but i think what the general public can do you know, is really two things that think that the first thing that i think about, of course, is giving their time. giving time is such a critical component to really everything that we accomplished because of
4:18 pm
our focus on volunteers and just the way that volunteers ultimately propel our mission. and then the second is really just making potentially financial donation. really it is those by no natural donations that really help us to ensure that those who are really impacted by disasters big and small, both here in the in the bay area, but it's forced anywhere in the country. that they are able to get the resources that they need to meet those immediate needs when they first either are affected by on fire, but potentially earthquake tornado, a hurricane across the country, and really, it's every dollar that makes a difference to support those folks as well. what what has the pandemic hurt your ability to bring on enough volunteers to really be there and respond to every disaster? because obviously, you know, so many people are staying at home for so long. um do you do you have are you? are you seeing enough people? will step up and able to help out you know, i would say alex that there's always a challenge with really engaging the right level of volunteers. the pandemic, of course, had an impact on our
4:19 pm
ability to relieve continue to propel our mission. we had to do some some significant mission adaptation and the way that we think about even something as simple as putting people in a big congregate shelter right? and so we've really made some strategic changes, but we are always in the in the market and seeking those who are willing to really turn their compassion into action. and in doing so, by really taking that step to as simple as going to. red cross .org slash volunteer to take a step to really help those who are impacted by disasters, big and small. if you would like to donate to the red cross, or if you would like to volunteer. you can scan the qr code. it's on your screen right now. you can also go to our website, ktvu .com/ giving day. well, the area whether or some fog, making a comeback and really cooling things off today, especially coast side and right around the bay. i'll step out of the way. we're actually in clarksburg. heather would park you see nice playground in the distance, and yesterday at this time, pretty
4:20 pm
hot, but more of a refreshing breeze, keeping things cool. this afternoon. it looks like we're gonna have some cooler temperatures as we head towards the weekend. quick update on the maps right now. of course, yesterday the big weather story not here in the bay area, but out towards new orleans, and you can't see the thunderstorms that erupted unfortunately produced the tornado tornadoes yesterday . that was the case yesterday, tuesday and then into it today. thank thankfully that area things have cleared out for us. more fog today in a bit of a temperature drop member yesterday we had lots of records to report seventies and eighties. a significant drop off in those numbers. look at san francisco only in the fifties all day long yesterday close to 80 degrees, main reason with. we've been talking about the fog taking center stage near the coast and right around portions of the bay. in fact, here is a look at the satellite right now. pretty much a summertime pattern with the fog, which is near the coast that will gradually pushed back into the bank. as we head into the overnight hours, so we are expecting some cloud cover first thing tomorrow morning.
4:21 pm
current numbers out there right now. looks like san francisco, in fact, has warmed up to 55 san jose in the upper sixties warmest locations inland in the upper seventies, close to 80 degrees out toward concord and brentwood. here's a live camera looking out above san francisco this afternoon where the fog with stubborn for a good portion of today. but right now, some sunshine up above will bring in some more cloud cover first thing tomorrow morning and temperatures will be the forties to right around 50 degrees. the areas of fog could be locally dense. forecast models kind of picking up on that idea for your thursday morning and then into the afternoon hours, partly sunny skies temperatures around the 60 to 76 degrees. we haven't talked about rain yet, but it looks like for one part of your weekend. we could be bumping up those rain chances, and we'll have more on that. with your forecast. the full update coming up in just a few minutes. mark. thank you so much. well a lot of excitement in san francisco, march madness comes to chase center a live report from joe fonzi about some of the big names coming to town, and here is a live look. here is a look

4:25 pm
the 16 teams remaining. the four that are coming here to the western regional might be the most high profile that are still left playing. gonzaga is one of those teams has a first round game against arkansas in gonzaga . you've got a team that the bay area is very familiar with. the bulldogs have played st mary's three times this year. st. mary's actually beat the bulldogs. in one of those games . they played usf twice and santa clara twice. it's a team that's been ranked number one throughout most of the season is the number one seed overall and the number one seed in this region, and the bulldogs are playing a team with the local connection as well. they're playing arkansas coach bite. eric musselman, a guy who was the warriors coach for two seasons and raised a couple of his kids in the east based so local connection there now the other matchup is a couple of other very high profile programs. obviously the most high profile is duke. when you talk about college basketball, there's no bigger name in college basketball than duke duke on the court practicing right now. all three teams or i should say all four of the three
4:26 pm
others have all practiced at various times today at duke's first round matchup is going to be texas tech. but when you talk about duke, you can't talk about the blue devils without talking about their head coach. mike stachowski and the blue blue devils got here by over the weekend, beating another very high profile program in michigan state, and you wanna talk about too high part full profile coaches about mike schelsky and tom it so for michigan state, but mike chefs key is probably the mount everest of all college basketball coaches. he has 1200 wins, which is more than any other coach in ncaa history. he has five national championships and what he did at the beginning of this year. he announced that when he turns 75, which he did this february, this would be his last season. so this has been after 43 years at duke has final season, so it's been kind of a victory lap year for him. and as you can imagine, that means he's answered a lot of the same questions all year and today was no exception. go exchange. it's uh, where sonya little bit. because everywhere you walk,
4:27 pm
everyone's taken a picture of you and they're watching everything. and look that gets old. you know, that gets old i feel for my guys. they've had pressure put on them that we're not putting on them. i tell them all the time. we're playing for us for you. and i love duke. i love our program, and i think it's worked out. great. not good. it's worked out great. so it's duke against texas tech and zog against arkansas. and, you know, i've seen coach k obviously lots of times, but never in person before today and sitting there at that press conference. i couldn't help feeling. you know, he maybe 75 years old, and he may be talking about retiring. but he is still very vibrant. he's got a sense of humor, and i get a feeling that after he is not coaching for a couple of years he feels to me like a guy who might say a i might be getting back into it. but he's not thinking that far in advance right now, and the other thing about him is every game could potentially be his last, and that makes it all that much more important. we've got
4:28 pm
more coming up at five o'clock, but obviously a big week here in san francisco for now, from san francisco joe fonzi reporting live and that much more special as this texas gal, though i'm sure you know who i'm rooting for against duke. but so i know you. i know you have texas roots, but texas tech roots even to know i went to u t. but, hey, you know, i got to root for the home state. but you know a really is an exciting time though, joe, i was in that area running today, and i saw the police escort of the team busses . i mean, you know, it's not often that march madness comes to the city. no, you're right. it's been in san jose before it's been in oakland before. but if you can imagine the world's fair at treasure island in 1939 , that's the last time it was in san francisco. and what you also get a sense of is not only is there bay area media there, but this is the equivalent to a big national event that we cover. if you're at an nba championship, or obviously not as big as a super bowl. but when you think
4:29 pm
about the four different teams from four different markets, and they all have media here as well as national media, so it really is a big deal, and that's one of the reasons they built this place to house events like this, and this is the first time they're getting a chance to san francisco able to showcase its beauty and the bay area really, as a whole. all right, joe looking forward to it tomorrow and sunday. thank you. we'll march madness is also a big win for san francisco businesses, with visitors already hitting a number of tourist hot spots, and we'll have that part of our coverage coming up at five still here at for the confirmation hearing of judge catania, brown jackson on capitol hill. by some republicans today focused in on the supreme court nominees. sentencing record plus is a bigger determine. no, senator. i didn't save jersey. a woman grieving for a little girl that she never met. we look into the challenges in combating sex trafficking and the devastating consequences for the children of consequences for the children of sex

disgusting way is to supervise their computer habits versus putting them in jail. no senator . i didn't say versus what you said. it's one of the testy exchanges and hearing that is also featured other hot button issues like abortion, critical race theory and court packing. we can't get an answer on court packing from her. justice ginsburg was against court packing said that nine was the right number while republicans have been frustrated, calling her answers evasive and unclear . senate democrats are praising her performance. judge jackson affirmed that she will approach her role on the supreme court with prudence. respect for precedent, optimistic she'll make history as the first african american woman on the nation's highest court if all 50 of their members can stick together with vice president kamala harris, casting the tie breaking vote, and you will become a member of the u. s supreme court. democrats say jackson's hearing offers a

4:35 pm
mason of hayward, the eight year old whose body was found earlier this month inside a home in merced. well, her mother, samantha johnson, has been charged with murder and felony child abuse. now. those fighting human trafficking say that this case highlights the dangers for the children of sex workers. johnson's family has told ktvu that she was caught up in prostitution. vanessa russell runs an organization called love never fails. that group there at hayward is dedicated to helping women get out of the sex industry, and she talked with me about this heartbreaking case. and the breakdowns and failures that she believes contributed to the little girl's murder. it's heartbreaking because i see women like samantha every day. who you know, are just sort of characterizes. that's just, you know, that's somebody that's a prostitute or that's a that's a sex worker. or that you know someone who's in the life and it just kind of either. just
4:36 pm
discarded, discussed, um, overlooked and misunderstood. and um and or there's just not enoughne like her that is mentally unwell that was trafficked from the age of 16 on and um and so what ends up happening, unfortunately, because there isn't the proper responses they become fully indoctrinated in the life. and they become even more mentally ill. and then it breaks my heart even further to know that she was, um you know, parenting, a child it just horrific to know that something could have been done and for years and years and years to intervene in her life, and i don't think the right things that could have been done. we're done. and then even worse, what could have been done to intervene on sophia's behalf?
4:37 pm
that she might be alive today. what do you think failed here? there's so many systems that failed. there were there were law enforcement came and they were. there was a report that that she had bruises on her and you know, law enforcement has been told. stay out of this. um we don't want any more black and brown babies taken away from their mothers. so unless something looks really bad, don't don't intervene. so not giving the law enforcement a past, but in a way, we've kind of given them a past to not respond because we've made it difficult for many law enforcement officers to take a stance because we make it look like oh, well, their enforcement is taking everybody's children away. also cps the same thing. cps was over rotating, taking too many children away. so then they were told don't take the children away. even though if something looks fishy, there should have been a deeper investigation on the part of cps. then there was some other
4:38 pm
people who were, you know, doing corrupt things with with samantha's social services paycheck, and that was there was some corruption there. there were so many systems that failed in this situation. whether i just can't even i can't even begin to explain. how prevalent is sex trafficking human trafficking here in the bay area very prevalent if you go down two streets and, um oakland tennison sandals, a son, stockton, san francisco, i could give you the street name sacramento. these these main cities have a blade. they have a place where trafficking is happening actively on every single night of the week. uh if you go to one of those places you might see 15 or 20 women standing out on a street corner being actively sold and that doesn't even count the thousands of ads that are online of people
4:39 pm
being sold on the digital platform. people think it's ok. to subscribe to this two by people to hurt people to further the demise of a child like sofia. it is just despicable. it's unacceptable. and, um, i'm i'm just i'm just raging about it. because if we don't speak up , who will who will speak up on behalf of sophia and say this is gon stop? well, we did reach out to alameda county about sophia's case. the social services agency told us today that due to privacy laws, it could not comment. meantime the search continues for this man, dante jackson. the 34 year old is the boyfriend of sofia's mom and is also wanted in the girl's murder, and authorities told me just today that they believe he is still here in the bay area, so if you've seen him, please call police. new developments in

and does not treat cancer or hpv infection. your doctor may recommend screening for certain hpv-related cancers. women still need routine cervical cancer screenings. you shouldn't get gardasil 9 if you've had an allergic reaction to the vaccine, its ingredients, or are allergic to yeast. tell your doctor if you have a weakened immune system, are pregnant, or plan to be. the most common side effects include injection site reactions, headache, fever, nausea, dizziness, tiredness, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and sore throat. fainting can also happen after getting gardasil 9. for women and men through age 45 who have not been vaccinated talk to your doctor or pharmacist about your risk for certain hpv-related cancers, and gardasil 9. help protect yourself.

aviation expert with the bay area company decision. speed inc . julian thank you so much for joining us first after airline crashes, we often talk about the black box, which is the cockpit voice recorder. just remind us again does, and it's significance in a situation like this. well when we talk about the black boxes, really two black boxes were talking about the one that you're referring to the cockpit voice recorder, which has been indicated to have been found today would capture sounds on the flight deck. so very importantly, it would capture the discussion of any between whoever was in the flight deck in this case, two pilots it would capture sounds of switches being smoothed it would capture warnings different sounds that would help us piece together what was occurring in those moments before the crash, and on the other side, we have the digital flight data recorder , which, as i understand, has been yet to be found, but that would capture lots of relevant parameters such as fear, speed attitude, engine parameters,
4:44 pm
things that would help us understand what the systems on the aircraft were doing. yes so it's a one records of voice. one records the instrumental work that's being done by the pilot inside. now, julian, the aircraft fell suddenly from a cruising altitude, 29,000 ft. really what are some of the circumstances that could cause injected a sense so quickly? maybe a loss in cabin pressure. lots of cabin pressure would would necessitate the crew to descend quickly and so they would forcibly pushed the nose over to descend. however that kind of descent rate is really great greater than what you would expect a crew to do. in that case, there are two things that come to mind, although clearly this is very early and it's very speculative but could be machine based, meaning the aircraft or could be human based. and on the machine side if you think back to the alaska air crash off the coast of california, where there was a maintenance problem that interfered with the jackscrew operation. in that case, the aircraft nosed over because the
4:45 pm
jets crew gave one and then another accident. silkair off the on its way to singapore and indonesia. in that case, it was thought that there was human intervention of pushing the nose forward. and in that case suicide so there could be a variety of reasons that could happen, but that kind of descent rate is not normal whatsoever. it isn't and you know, we're talking about these 77 37 800 the boeing it's an earlier version of the 7 37 max, which we now know had an unaddressed issue. do we know if any of that there were any previous issues with the 7 37 hundreds the one that crashed in china. it's good question. 737 800 as part of a family of aircraft called the next generations 67 607 108 109 100 that came after the classics and before the max that series of aircraft has had a fantastic track record and safety record. and so nothing of this sort and to my knowledge has been has been seen. and another point to make. i think this is not the 77
4:46 pm
max. ands been involved in that accident could not have occurred in the saxon because that system does not reside on this aircraft that was unique to the 7 37 max that caused those issues. all right. julian fox aviation expert with the bay area company, decision, speed inc. thank you so much for your insight this afternoon. appreciate it. thank you. remember yesterday we're talking about the record heat with all the clear skies. there was a fog bank offshore. that fog decided to pay us a visit first thing this morning, pushing back into the bay. having a huge impact on temperature. is that this area, this little park in the larks burt the weather on the road this afternoon, actually fairly nice out because yesterday at this time is fairly hot. and it looks like we'll have the cooler temperatures in our forecast over the coming days. this was the scene as we take a look at the weather computer. this was the scene looking out toward the golden gate bridge earlier this afternoon. from a pacific heights and you can still see some lingering fog here, and that's having a big impact on
4:47 pm
temperatures. take a look at the top row. yesterday's numbers. of course we had records to report and you can see the bottom row. a big drop off in this numbers. san francisco you can see down to 56 degrees so far for a high this afternoon to the cool down definitely as kicking in, you can see the satellite or the fog hanging out in your portions of the coastline, especially south of the golden gate bridge. here's a satellite imagery just over the past few hours as we kind of loop this, it has been trying to clear out from north to south, but it will gradually pushed back into the bay as we head into the overnight hours. so once again tomorrow morning, we are expected to. we're expecting some agre first thing thursday morning. take a look at the temperature comparison. everybody has a big minus sign in friendlies numbers compared to this time. yesterday you could see a palo alto 22 degrees cooler. compared to four o'clock on tuesday. so everybody experiencing the cool down not so much inland, though still fairly warm for concord, livermore in brentwood, oakland right now, 69 san jose in the upper sixties, but there you can
4:48 pm
see evidence of that fog half moon bay only the low fifties, right now in san francisco in the mid fifties. um stubborn fog earlier today over the city, but things have cleared out at least for right now, but it looks like that cloud cover expected to move back into the picture overnight. we'll start out tomorrow morning most areas in the forties to right around 50 degrees. you can see the forecast models kind of picking up on the fog coverage, coast side and right around the bay. this could impact of his abilities as well into the afternoon hours. partly sunny skies. it'll take some time to see a little bit more blue skies won't be completely clear near the bay or the coast and temperatures run 60 to 76. degrees. i guess we're showing you this forecast model once again. just so you clearly know what's going to happen for your thursday with the cloud cover in the morning and the cool down it is here to stay across the region, this area of high pressure, it really warmed up the bay area over the past couple days on monday and tuesday, it begins to back off so cool to mild for your thursday and friday, and this is the change that will bring in cooler air for the weekend and the chance of some rainfall on
4:49 pm
sunday specially sunday night and into monday morning. the rainfall forecast models showing you this, and as you can see, those numbers do begin to go up, maybe as early as sunday afternoon to probably better, but sunday evening, and it looks like a rainy forecast as we head into monday morning high sport tomorrow will be in the fifties coast side sixties, warmest locations approaching the mid to upper seventies. and the look ahead as you can see here. partly cloudy skies and your friday will thicken up the cloud cover throughout the day on saturday. we bring in that rain cloud to reflect those rain chances on sunday, especially by sunday evening, and then we could be dodging some more rain drops, or maybe embracing some raindrops first thing monday morning as that system moves in from the north, so the cool down is here. hopefully, we can be tracking some rainfall into early next week. we'd all appreciate that. thanks so much mark. well. former san francisco giant star buster posey has sold his home in the east bay and for a lot of money, according to zillow poses six bedroom, five bathroom home in lafayette. so for $9.3 million, it's more than
