7:02 am

have a red flag warning in effect until later on tonight. that's the sea of fog, the low clouds, the marine layer roughly down to about 800ft. but it's condensed. it's shallow. it'll burn off 50s right now at the sea shore, 67 degrees at this very early hour in livermore. it's in the mid 60s in san jose. and good morning, santa rosa. you're at 55 going up to 102 outside. number 108 towards the delta discovery bay and brentwood. 107 tri-valley and 90 degrees in san mateo. your full five day forecast in just a matter of minutes, frank. >> thank you roberta and new this morning. all lanes. highway 580 eastbound near 35th avenue. offramp are back open this morning following a fatal accident. the calls came in at 320. this morning. first reports were that it involved a motorcyclist. a sigalert was called out at 330 this morning with all lanes blocked on 580. you can see that triangle there. that was the area where it happened. the lanes reopened

7:03 am

about 30 minutes ago. still a bit of a slow go there, but chp is still on the scene conducting an investigation. >> well, this morning the san francisco police department is out with a strong warning for anyone planning to attend the annual unpermitted skateboarding event known as the hill bomb in dolores park. it is anticipated to happen later today. let's go to ktvu betty, who live there this morning with the city's plans, especially in the wake of the problems we saw last year, betty. >> that's right. claudine. good morning. san francisco police are urging skaters to stay away from dolores park today for this annual hill bomb. but take a look behind me. there are barricades set up already. they put these out here as of friday. and the police chief yesterday said that they will be used to keep the community safe. as you mentioned, last year's hill bomb resulted in mass arrests, chaos and violence. the hill bomb does attract skaters to fly down a steep part of dolores street

7:04 am

that's between 18th and 21st, and the event has come with big crowds that can turn unruly and violent. sfpd said. officers will be heavily deployed this year. last year, there were clashes with police mass arrests. about 100 of them muni vehicles were vandalized and the crowd also launched fireworks, rocks and bottles at officers. critics called the police response excessive. this year, s.f. police chief bill scott has a message for skaters. >> we don't intend to allow a hill bomb on social media. you know, we're seeing that some are putting out that it's been canceled as far as we're concerned, it is canceled. >> now, as the police said that the streets will be closed around this area from 4 to 10 p.m, it's unclear whether these skaters will heed the warning, because, claudine, the word generally spreads by word of mouth or on social media. so we

7:05 am

will have to see back to you. >> okay. thank you so much, betty. well, the 4th of july may be over, but police and firefighters in cities all across the bay area are still preparing for more illegal fireworks shows this weekend. first responders in contra costa county alone say they responded to more than 100 fires tied to illegal fireworks between early thursday morning and early yesterday, and it was a similar situation in sonoma county, where police and firefighters are now preparing for what they expect will be a very busy weekend. >> holiday weekend. we expect the incidents related fireworks to increase through at least sunday into monday. we had at least a dozen fire related incidents that ranged everything from an injury to an actual structure fire in a vegetation fire. >> bay area firefighters say this week's heat wave has only added to the danger of illegal fireworks shows during the 4th of july holiday weekend time now is 705. >> surveillance footage of a residential street in the city of berkeley caught a moment. a young man was injured by a firework blast. local residents say around 30 teens were setting

7:06 am

up fireworks from the street on thursday night near the corner of fairview and harper. one firework appeared to be a dub but let out a delayed explosive. at that point, the young man started running and some of the teens started screaming and called 911. emergency crews took the teen, injured in the blast to the hospital. >> the reckless this year, i want to say a little. there was a lot of reckless. and you know, when you when you reckless, that's what happens. you know what i mean? you know, a kid hand got blowed off. i feel bad for the kid, man. you know what i'm saying? because i wouldn't wish that on bad on nobody. but, you know, you got to be careful. what you doing out here? absolute fireworks. >> we don't have the young man's identity, but neighbors say it was a football player to local high school headed to college on a scholarship. we told, he lost several fingers in that blast. >> well, many people are looking to the water to beat the heat this weekend, but as ktvu zac sos shows us, recent drownings have first responders warning

7:07 am

residents to keep safety top of mind. >> at baker beach in san francisco this july fourth weekend, throngs enjoying the sand and surf. but not everyone, perhaps aware it's really strong. >> so you have to be really careful about that. >> fred obermeyer, a scuba diver, so he knows all too well. >> people get swept out to the ocean, especially like through the golden gate bridge. >> the dangers of area, beaches, lakes and rivers highlighted by several drownings. this week. monday, the body of a missing san jose 15 year old pulled from the san joaquin river after he went under while retrieving a ball. then tuesday, a 37 year old father from oakland died while trying to rescue his daughter in the modesto reservoir and in sonoma county. a search ongoing for a man who went missing while swimming in the russian river this week. if you don't think it's safe to go in the water, don't go in the water. >> and that goes for the child and for you, san francisco fire captain jonathan baxter says all

7:08 am

too often people just don't know their own abilities, particularly along the coast. keep this in mind. the rip currents in san francisco beaches are so strong that an adult in just ankle feet deep water can be pulled out into the surf line. >> while vishnu says he's keeping a healthy distance with his kids. >> yeah, because they're a little bit, not very balanced, you know, when the wave recedes. >> something else first responders say is important to remember. the water can be far colder than you might think, especially when you're drinking alcohol. >> you can succumb to hypothermia. you can succumb to exhaustion faster if you're on those substances. >> that's why firefighters say it's best not to mix drinking and swimming and surfer zach brain adds, definitely make sure that you're always with someone who can at least go get help if something bad happens. >> a lot of people underestimate it. they don't understand how powerful it is and how quickly

7:09 am

something can can turn left, and something else to keep in mind. >> if you are planning to head to a san francisco beach this weekend, they are not staffed with lifeguards. that's why it's so important to follow that. bring a buddy rule here in san francisco. zac sos, ktvu, fox two news. >> president biden has now granted his first tv interview since last week's debate, making it clear he has no plans to drop out of the race. >> it's a bad episode. no indicator of any serious condition. i was exhausted. i didn't listen to my instincts. >> and did you ever. the president sat down with abc news anchor george stephanopoulos during the president's campaign appearance in wisconsin yesterday. coming up at 730, we'll have more of this interview along with reaction from ktvu political analyst brian sobel. >> i mean, it drove us to tears because they were jumping out of the water. they were just like gasping for air or whatever, you know, and it was very, very

7:15 am

terrible. i thought maybe once every blue moon maday suspects the thieves are people who participated in a sideshow in the area. >> he says police did not respond to the robbery until almost nine hours later. it's very disheartening. >> i'm scared to go out after dark and i don't know, i just it's alarming. >> while we were at the store friday afternoon, a police unit pulled up and parked in the lot. we were told it is part of the violence suppression unit stationed at known crime hotspots. city council member trevor reed, who represents the area, issued a statement saying in part i continue to advocate and work to secure increased public safety resources and response, urging the mayor to prioritize our districts demands. >> hopefully, the right people will hear this message and start making the right moves, you know, to save the city, council member reed says those involved must be identified and held accountable. >> oakland police say investigators are now reviewing evidence in oakland. amber lee

those are history. what we're experiencing now is going to become more of the norm with these absurd high temperatures and also how long they are prolonged as far as our heat waves are concerned. like this is the new norm due to climate control. and this is just a obliviated as far as the temperatures are concerned, needles yesterday at 122. needles is always hot, but this shattered a record. and that's another thing we're shattering records that were established way back in 1931. red bluff at 118. same in redding yesterday. sacramento hit 110. that was a brand new record. and death valley at 127 could see the all time record high on sunday, which is 134 degrees. so right now in the forecast is about 130. so we'll keep a watchful eye on that same thing with las vegas on tuesday. they're expecting 118 degrees. that could be the city's all time record high. now this is our live weather camera. this looks

7:19 am

refreshing. that fog bank is down to roughly 600ft. but watch our future cats. it's going to wipe away very rapidly. it's a thin, condensed layer. and by lunchtime everybody's basked in the sunshine before we see the penetration of the low clouds pushing back on shore. later tonight into the east bay shoreline. now temperatures right now 55 and half moon bay, and in santa rosa to 67 degrees and throughout the tri valley. this is what you need to know. first off, this is day five. in our prolonged heat wave, we have the warning and the advisory allowed to expire, but not until wednesday and next monday, the 15th of july, is when we will see all of us return to average high temperatures. meanwhile, red flag warning in effect for tonight. relative humidity down into the teens. winds are under ten miles per hour right now, for the most part, except for fairfield. these winds will pick up west and northwest 5 to 15mph. we are under that huge dome of high pressure. it's just sitting over the western states as it gradually does. finally nudge in an easterly direction.

7:31 am

that. look at that. yeah, that marine layer. i like to see that. yeah. san francisco apparently has its own form of air conditioning, unlike brentwood and walnut creek and all the rest. so head to marin or head to the city, i guess is a place to go if you want to beat the heat. welcome back to mornings on two. >> i'm frank mallicoat and i'm claudine wong. let's continue to talk about this heat with meteorologist roberto gonzalez and you and i were talking earlier about how things have changed so much over the years, climate change and all these things playing into this that the temperatures that we're seeing and the patterns we're seeing for those of us who grew up in the bay area and have been here for a long time, it is catching a lot of people by surprise and we are shattering records that were established back in the 30s, or even in the 70s, like 1978 was a very hot year. >> but we are surpassing these temperatures by a handful and so this is really the new norm. but what is so impressive and so dangerous is just how long this prolonged heat wave is. and we've got ourselves a baseball

7:32 am

game. we're still celebrating the holiday. we've got an afternoon game. luis medina on the mound for the good guys, 84 degrees. slather on the sunblock. you know what i noticed? i went to a giants afternoon game. they were taking the sunblock away from people at the gate. so i don't think you can take it with you. you got to be prepared. heading on out and grab the sunblock. we still have that excessive heat warning in effect for today in our inland areas. bay side. it's an advisory records likely again today with elevated fire danger. we do have that red flag warning in effect, even though the return of the marine layer is knocking back the temperatures at the coast, 55 to 67 right now. later today, near 70, with the clearing of the skies at the sea shore to 108 inland, full forecast just minutes away, frank. >> all right, we'll see you in a bit. thank you. roberta, it's 732. topping our news at this half hour, the san francisco police department is out with a strong warning for anyone that's planning to attend the annual unpermitted skateboarding event known as the hill bomb in

dolores park. it's anticipated to happen sometime later today in ktvu. betty yu live at dolores park, with the city's plans to make sure it doesn't happen. good morning. >> good morning. frank, the san francisco police department is trying to get ahead of this event this year, saying that they plan to stop it from taking place here at dolores park. now, this is an unofficial event with no known organizers. still, if you take a look behind me, there are barricades all along dolores street here this morning already, in place between 18th and 21st street and the police department says they will be used for public safety reasons. because of the volatile nature of this hill bomb. now, skateboarders usually race down a steep part of dolores street during this annual event last year, the big crowds turned unruly and violent. sfpd said officers this year will be heavily deployed to stop the

7:34 am

event from happening. last year, police cited or arrested more than 100 people. muni vehicles were vandalized and the crowd also launched fireworks and other objects at officers. critics called the police response excessive. chief bill scott said friday property damage and violence will not be tolerated. >> the san francisco police department is not against skateboarding. it is not against people going out and skating around the city. as a matter of fact, we want people to have fun with their skateboards. but what we don't want and can't have is a community that has been taken over by criminal activity vandalism, assaults, assaults on officers, assaults on the public, unsuspecting pedestrians and motorists that are in danger when these events happen and when they're unorganized, unpermitted. >> sfpd said even though there's an instagram post stating that this event has been canceled, officers are still preparing for it. we should also note that

7:35 am

sfmta put a notice out saying streets around dolores park will be closed today from 4 to 10 p.m. and that includes dolores street between 18th and 21st. frank. >> all righty. betty yu, live for us at dolores park. thank you for that, betty. on to politics now. former president trump is now proposing a big change to his already scheduled second debate with president biden. this one would have no moderators. trump posted a statement on his social media site saying it to be, quote, no holds barred showdown and trump says this format would allow the two candidates to kind of fight it out without any interference. so far, the biden campaign has not formally responded to trump's debate challenge. president biden has granted his first tv interview. meanwhile, since last week's debate, as he tries to get his campaign for reelection back on track, the president sat down with abc news anchor george stephanopoulos during his campaign appearance

7:36 am

at madison, wisconsin, yesterday. the president, downplaying what many viewed as a disastrous performance in that first debate, was this a bad episode where the sign of a more serious condition, it was a bad episode, >> no indicator of any serious condition. i was exhausted, i didn't listen to my instincts in terms of preparing and a bad night. >> you know, you say you were exhausted, and i know you've said that before as well, but you came and you did have a tough month, but you came home from europe about 11 or 12 days before the debate, spent six days in camp david. why wasn't that enough rest time? enough recovery time? >> because i was sick. i was feeling terrible and president biden made it clear he has no intentions of ending his reelection campaign. >> that despite a growing number of democratic leaders who are exploring the possibility of replacing president biden as their party's candidate and our ktvu political analyst brian

7:37 am

sobel was among those closely watching president biden's interview. >> sobel says the president came off far better than he did in last week's debate, but says there were still moments in that interview that raised political red flags specifically when president biden was asked if he rewatched his debate performance. >> the response was, i don't think i did. well, you either did or you didn't. it's pretty important. one of the things that happens in campaigns is you always look at the playback. if it's televised or if it isn't, you meet with your advisers and say, here's where i did. well, here's where i didn't do well, the fact that he can't quite remember whether he looked at a replay is, is concerning. >> sobel says president biden has largely been successful during his past four years in the oval office. but he says the big question now is whether president biden can successfully lead the nation for another four years, he said in his interview

7:38 am

that he did not need a neurological test because the neurological test happens every day in his presidency. >> fine. but that doesn't speak to the fact that he has so many people around him, taking care of him. that kind of cognitive acuity test would be very precise about whether he's suffering from perhaps early dementia or some other related, situation. >> sobel says president biden's debate performance has dramatically increased concerns about his age and mental fitness. abc news is scheduled to host the second debate between the two candidates on september 10th. >> a $10 billion statewide bond measure that would fund several environmental projects here in california will appear on the upcoming november ballot this week. state lawmakers in sacramento approved the bill to put prop four before california voters. it would raise money for the state's expanding efforts to respond to climate change, global warming that would
