7:01 am
city, so that's pretty cold here . still a fabulous friday forecast the usual fog. a little bit of a breeze sunny inland, but it does look cooler was 60 seventies coast in bay and now eighties inland. alright over to sal izzy. it is not a friday light, berkeley want to start their what? caldecott? what he's not there. i guess not. i'll send it back. there he is. three. yes, sir sally. yes i was standing up in the news. i'm here in the newsroom. sometimes i get pulled away. however i will let you know there is better news on the 24 front and this is a look at the people arriving at the bay bridge. i think i know where all these people were all of a sudden we have a big backup. they were on highway 24 highway, 24 has reopened completely. it is gone , and just the last few minutes they lifted all the lane closures and hopefully things
7:02 am
will start getting better here. but the accident was there. the crash was there for about an hour, maybe an hour and a half westbound 24 near telegraph, so give it some time. it will start getting better, and you will see that it is going to be just a tough drive. now bart does not have service right now between mean the horrendous station and oakland because of a problem in the berkeley hills tunnel. and that is a major deal. in fact, bart on its website. i'm looking at it right now says seek alternative modes of transportation. they only do that when they think, hey, we're not going to be able to handle this. we do have james torres on the scene. we'll talk about that in just a little bit, but it will affect people because they're going to get into their car and i think highway 24 highway four are going to be crowded as a result. now it's 702. let's go back to the desk. let's get tomorrow on those east bay commute challenges we've seen this morning. bart service, as you know, is stopped along parts of the yellow line. we
7:03 am
mentioned ktvu james torres. he is live there at the bart station in orinda. this is the most recent trouble spot long lines for those busses, james yeah. icu. no this is one of those stories that changes fluidly. i mean, minute by the minute. just a moment ago, we saw probably one of the longest lines. i've seen. four bart station just outside the station here in orinda, and that was because the service out here was out and i say was out because now it appears that the service is back on because that entire line just moved from waiting in line for these bus bridges to now, going back through. these are indicates, but boy, has it been such a stressful and messy morning for bart commuters, especially if you were coming out of the east bay. bart says its service between here and aranda was stopped because of troubles with the ventilation system in the berkeley hills. it looks like that might be restored. now it's been a tough morning. i just the morning been tough week too. for these riots earlier this morning, we a little further east. we had some trouble between concord and pleasant hill due to a power problem. that's all according to bar in that same area was shut
7:04 am
down for hours earlier in the week because of a nearby grassfire. that same line still dealing with repairs from a train derailment last month. bart says bus bridges from contra costa county connection they've had that partnership all week long. they've been helping to fill the gaps between each of its start service points. but if you have not yet walked out the door this morning, you really want to consider doing that as soon as possible as delays to get anywhere from the east bay to the peninsula into san francisco. it's pretty much guarantee this morning, but it looks like we have a little bit of good news. back out here live in front of orinda again. we had a long line just next to us waiting for those bus bridges. all of those people just ran inside to the bart station getting directed by some people who are working here to tell them that the service is now restored. so it looks like those headaches this morning are starting to get just a little bit better. but of course, expect some delays. still as we head into the morning. we're live this morning outside of orinda. i'm james torres, ktvu fox. two news changing situation , james. thank you across the bay here. it's expected there
7:05 am
will be more long lines in san francisco. people lining up to get the monkey pox vaccine at the city's only walk up location . people have been lining up early all this week in hopes of getting that protection. the vaccine clinic has limited supply. a shipment arrived on tuesday, with 500 shots available for each day. other clinics around the city are also offering the vaccine but only by appointment. san francisco board of supervisors committee held a hearing on the city's response to the monkey pox virus. the committee heard from representatives from the san francisco health department. they described the agency's vaccine campaign to protect those who are most at risk there. also answering questions about outreach efforts and how to better meet the demand for the vaccine. it's critical that we distribute the vaccines were allocated quickly. so speed is really this is urgent, as you noted, and that's to build immunity in the community as rapidly as possible and to really demonstrate to the state and to the cdc that we have the infrastructure in place to get the vaccines out to our community. and five hours. the
7:06 am
only people being vaccinated are those considered at high risk of getting monkeypox. this includes gay or bisexual men. anyone has had close contact with someone who is infected, and people who have received a notice about potential exposure time now, 76 we expect a white house update this morning about president biden, who tested positive for covid. the white house says the president is taking paxil a bird . it's an antiviral drug to help reduce the severity of the covid, the president's doctor says. he has a runny nose. there's for tea. league and the occasional cough. the president is fully vaccinated and has had two booster shots. the last one was back in march, and the president, in a video statement thanked everybody for their concern. i really appreciate your inquiries concerns, but i'm doing well lot of work done going to continue to get it done and in the meantime, thanks for your concern. and keep the faith. it's going to be okay. white house says he'll continue
7:07 am
to carry out his duties while isolating at the white house and its final public hearing this summer. the house january 6th committee focused on the actions of former president donald trump, as hundreds of his supporters broke into the u. s capitol from the comfort of his dining room. he watched on tv as the attack escalated for three hours. he refused to call off the attack. the panel focused on those 187 minutes that day between former president trump's call for supporters to march to the capital, and when he told them to go home to trump white house insiders described watching then president trump urged his supporters to act and then refused to stop them. there's a camera that is on in there at all times. and so if the president had wanted to make a statement and address the american people, he could have been on camera almost instantly. in closing, the committee said it is still receiving evidence and new testimony. members will review it and reconvene in
7:08 am
september. we'll have a live report for you from washington here coming up in the next 30 minutes with more on the latest testimony, ghazi a well professor eric schickler, uc berkeley political science professor, says for him one big moment in the hearing was listening to the secret service radio transmissions where you can hear agents asking for messages to be relayed to their families, telling them goodbye. the contrast between that and the president sitting in his dining room, watching tv and not , you know, calling in the national guard, not calling his . you know the defense secretary and so on. i think that kind of just a position is, you know, really kind of undermines visions of president trump as a you know, says ah, accountable leader taking care. of our constitution. professor schickler also said the testimony reinforces out. the former president did nothing to stop the mob in those first few hours of the deadly attack. i think the committee presented a really compelling account of the
7:09 am
president's role in first instigating what happened and then in failing to respond to those around him recognize the seriousness of the president, you know, essentially checked out and was, you know, talking to rudy giuliani, giuliani and so on. but did nothing to try to stop the attack as it was happening. professor schickler said the hearings also increased the pressure on attorney general merrick garland of seriously consider pursuing possible charges against the former president. contra costa county sheriff's deputies arrested two men believed to be involved in a deadly shooting and robbery right near the pleasant hill lafayette boundary. the sheriff and county d a. say, don juan watson and jalen washington chase the victim from conquer to an area of unincorporated contra costa counting your lafayette. the victim, basil julani eventually crashed near taylor boulevard and gloria terrorists. that's when they say the two shot and killed jelani and took his rolex. contra costa county sheriff says that both watson and washington are suspected in other area holdups.

7:11 am
people hey, i we need you to find a different way to get to work today. what people do is they get into the car and highway four has been slow. 24 has been slow because of an earlier crash crash on 24 is gone. hopefully this is evening out and on fridays, we do have a little bit of a different commute patterns. sometimes people stay home on fridays, and they work from home. or maybe they have the day off. but, you know, you can see the traffic is going to be busy. another place where traffic is busy. there was a stalled vehicle on the richmond bridge westbound and we have a camera there at the toll plaza to show you that there's kind of a hefty back up here at the toll plaza of the richmond bridge. and that's not what you expect on a friday trying to get across the bay into san rafael. it's a lot slower. we're going to keep an eye on it for you. hopefully when they get that stalled vehicle out, things will improve. this is not looking good. so yeah. friday light not so much. 7 11. let's go back to the desk. alright, sal. thank you change in policy for

sorts of people hanging around out here. ah drinking beer and music going on. one jewelry vendor who has had a legal permit to sell her items in the plaza for the past eight years, says the problem of illegal vendors increased dramatically during the pandemic, and she hopes this temporary fence will help. and my personal opinion is wonder is wonderful. now is a lot of control and night for us. we have more protection because i don't need to pay attention to who is behind me. now again in san francisco. city leaders say this fence is temporary, but they say having it there for now , we'll give them some time to come up with some more long term solutions to the problems at 24th and mission at that bar plaza, for example, they plan to help some of the street vendors who were there who can go through a permit process to sell their items legally. if they qualify for that, david garcia will send it back to you. okay alex. thank you. well, the weekly u. s drought monitor report shows no major changes

7:34 am
he may have contracted it. look, i don't think that that matters, right? i think what matters is we prepared for this moment the dam has begun. done to break last night, republican wyoming representative liz cheney had to take over chairing the latest hearing on january 6th. after chairman bennie thompson tested positive for covid. he had to participate remotely. he lied. he bullied. he betrayed his oath . the committee, though, laid out their case last night that former president trump refused to act for some three hours after his supporters stormed the capital. that was despite pleas from many of those around him, including family members don't want to say the election's over and i'll take of the president, rehearsing a speech on the seventh showed his unwillingness to say the election was over. going to leave. we need to do it now. secret service radio transmission showed just how dire the situation was at the capitol. trump has called the committee hearing a kangaroo court. the current president, meantime, is preparing for a scaled back schedule in the days ahead. he has virtual meetings

7:36 am
fortunately not seen any major injuries. but one thing that we always remind people is if you are the victim of this crime to not fight back at the end of the day, this is a property crime. um your watch can be replaced. but you cannot. reportedly some of the crimes were caught onto balinese cameras and the police are warning. you should stay alert when you wear valuable items like watches. the fbi is warning teenagers and their parents about a disturbing increase in crimes involving sex , extortion and home computers. agents say. more and more adults are posing as young girls on social media sites to coerce teenage boys to say share sexual images of themselves online. the predators, then demand money from their teenage victims with detailed instructions. now you're going to go to your mom's wallet and give me your credit card and give me the pin number on the back. and i'm going to charge $1000 if you don't your church, your sport, your work. your school are all going to see what you just did. the fbi
7:37 am

7:38 am

8:04 am
response to the monkey pox virus. the committee heard from representatives from the san francisco health department, who described the agency's vaccine campaign to protect those most at risk. members also answered questions about the outreach efforts and how to better meet the demand for the vaccine. it's critical that we distribute the vaccines were allocated quickly . so speed is really this is urgent, as you noted, and that's to build immunity in the community as rapidly as possible and to really demonstrate to the state and to the cdc that we have the infrastructure in place to get the vaccines out to our community. the only people being vaccinated or those who are considered high risk includes gay or bisexual men. anyone who's had close contact with someone who is infected and people who have received a notice about potential exposure . we expect to get a white house update this morning about president biden, who tested positive for covid 19. the white house says the president is taking packs cloven, an antiviral drug to help reduce the severity. of his covid symptoms. the president's doctor

visions of president trump as a you know, says ah, accountable leader taking care of our constitution. professor schickler says that the testimony reinforces how the president former president did nothing to stop the mob in those first few hours of the deadly attack. think the committee presented a really compelling account of the president's role in first instigating what happened and then in failing to respond to those around him recognized the seriousness of the president, you know, essentially checked out. and was, you know, talking to rudy giuliani, giuliani and so on, but did nothing to try to stop the attack as it was happening. professor sheckler says the hearings could also increase pressure on attorney general merrick garland to seriously consider pursuing criminal charges against the former president. contra costa county sheriff's deputies arrested two men believed to be involved in a deadly shooting and robbery near the pleasant hill in lafayette boundary. the sheriff in contra costa county, d a. say
