cong exercise that was supposed to happen in the rodeo hercules area has been canceled. let's go to ktvu ali rasmus, joining us live from that area with an update and allie. last time we talked, you were talking about the wind humidity and watching it closely. yeah, the wind is really the reason why this training, exercise and controlled burn was scrapped for today, and we were telling you about it all morning long. you know, up in the hills here in rodeo. it was very windy and breezy and that ultimately is the reason why these plans have to change. we just found out just in the last 15 minutes or so that firefighters after doing a weather check here decided to make that change of plans to tell us more about it is david woods. you're the fire captain here, and you made the call to
with contra costa fire. he made the call to cancel this for today. what were the conditions like when you were out there doing that weather check. we were very strict parameters that we work with whenever we pull a permit for this training and the winter just a little bit too high and for safety because of the area that we're in, or around critical infrastructure in a neighborhood so we wanted to stop it. we're going to start again tomorrow when conditions will be a little bit better. do you have to have the optimal conditions to do this sort of thing, and you were telling me that on friday, in fact, we have some video of the training exercise. you guys started on friday. you had to stop it because there was an actual fire. nearby that you had to respond to and then later on, the winds picked up again. it was and this part of the county. we get the prevailing winds, the marine layer that comes in so winds are higher out here, so we've got a very small window. where fuels are just right out here to burn and the conditions and weather temperatures humidities fall right in line where we can come out here and do training burden, so was very
strict parameters that we work under, and it just happened for safety fell outside of those parameters for today that some of the fire trucks and some of the firefighters were already here and prepared to do this controlled burn. why is it important to nonetheless, get the resources out here and plan for these kinds of training exercises. even if they have to be scrapped. is it because we're expecting a really difficult peak of wildfire season the next few months? gold is and as everybody says in fire industry , we don't have a fire season in california last long, there's different levels of severity. so when we have a condition like this and we have engines out here that have come as far as antioch, pittsburg, cerrito and all over the east bay, and it's just one of those things that we had to stop them turning around and try it for tomorrow. so we try and get these in early in the season. working real you know, life like situations but also doing a very controlled and safe manner. is there a sense that you need all the practice you can get? absolutely i mean, whether it's wild land, firefighting or structural
firefighting. we're always training, but we always in training, do it. the safest manner that we can thank you so much. david woods with contra costa fire, explaining that the controlled burn and training exercise that they were going to do today here in rodeo has been canceled because of the windy conditions out here. they're expecting to resume things tomorrow. so we will, of course, be following that and have an update if plans go ahead as scheduled. tomorrow with this controlled burn, claudine, sal and garcia will send it back to you, ali. thank you. we'll move overseas now is unsuccessful. ground assault in eastern ukraine have russia modifying its plan in the region amid a growing lack of manpower reporter greg palkot has more from kiev, ukraine. ukraine seizing the moment on day 82 of the russian invasion. moscow seeing more setbacks to its eastern offensive after a series of unsuccessful ground assault, ukrainian forces fighting back and even gaining ground in some areas. in the kharkiv region, ukrainian soldiers achieving a
symbolic victory, pushing the russians back across the border , and there are new reports that russia could be running out of combat ready soldiers. occupant in the occupiers still do not want to admit that they are at a dead end, and that their so called special operation has already failed and their main russian objective dividing nato also in question, as sweden signaled its intention to join the alliance, following a similar announcement from finland last week, and despite warnings from moscow that any expansion of nato would have serious consequences. russia's unprovoked invasion of ukraine is not only illegal and indefensible. it also undermines the european security order that's weed and builds its security on the fighting ramps up, more weapons are flowing into the country, and over the weekend, top diplomats met at the nato summit in berlin to discuss giving even more support. with the us pledging to stay in the fight until the russians are pushed out of
ukraine, the united states and our allies and partners are focused on giving ukraine a strong hand as possible so that it can repel russian aggression. and another economic blow to moscow. mcdonald's on monday saying it will pull out of russia closing more than 800 restaurants across the country and keep greg palkot fox news. doctors are suggesting to spend time in nature to boost your health. researchers at ucsf found that patients who spend time in open air have positive effects in their health doctors across the country are asking patients spend time outdoors to treat conditions like anxiety, depression and high blood pressure. they recommend walking or spending time with others outside as possible options. previous studies show spending at least two hours a week outside has several health benefits for the first time in 13 years, california is creating a new state park. the dose deep rios ranch park is going to be about 10 miles southeast of tracy. and 40 miles east of san
jose and stanislas county. it is nearly four square miles, and the area is expected to open to the public by late next year. by 2027. it is expected to offer visitors trails, picnic areas, restrooms and other basics. campgrounds could be available by 2032. now what it opens. it will be california's 280th state park and the first new park since 2009 when four or dunes near monterrey opened cannot wait. let's see what the weather is doing. you know, there's a breeze here at the oakland estuary, but steve paulson, we just saw a live report by ali rasmus. there was a prescriber and that had to be canceled out in the rodeo hercules areas, so part of the bay area seeing some pretty serious wind. i'm not surprised. they canceled that there's too strong gusts out there. so that makes sense to me. i was surprised even mentioned that this morning, but tomorrow will be a little better here on wednesday will be i think less on the wind, but we had some really strong gusts here yesterday and also overnight into this morning,
highest gusts look to be ultimate past black diamond mines, also around paterson past they were all between about 53 to 61 mph. mount diablo is 45 sfo yesterday hit 45, san francisco and brisbane both checked in with 41, mph pleasant and petaluma. cemetery and vallejo all between 35 37 mph. why has it been so darn windy since the middle of april? while i'll be happy to explain it to you? there have been a series of lows that have been coming in now some of these, their moisture starved for us, but these lows continue to move into the pacific northwest. so that's reason number one. they don't have a lot of moisture, but they have cold air and they're very dynamic. so that generates win. you create differences in the pressure gradients the low digs in here, the high here and the high in the desert southwest. they don't like that. so what do they do? they fill it with wind this these lows also coming into the pacific northwest. have prevented the desert southwest high from building northward. so seattle in portland's are getting nonstop, cool temps, clouds and rain above average
rainfall already for many parts of oregon, and i mean we're not even halfway done with may but as long as this pattern stays this way, then we'll get some of these systems coming in, and they generate win also generate low clouds. why because the water temps are really cold 54 61, the temp truck and also south lake tahoe, sacramento 63. but monterrey's only 56. in the san francisco bowie's dropped right back down to 49. so you get one day of eighties inland. next thing you know, another system moves into the north, that colder water equals fog, and that's exactly what's happened over the last 24 hours. big fog bank breezy to windy morning drizzle sunny but cooler for many today i mean there. there's already some breaks in that low clouds are mainly in the fifties couple of sixties but mainly in the fifties. and as long as those patterns this pattern continues, with the systems moving out of the gulf of alaska. into the pacific northwest. these patterns generate wind and i think this will carry us into the end of the month. now. it doesn't mean we can't get warm free briefly because we will. we'll start to
warm up again. operators on wednesday cools right back down thursday. maybe windy and warm again friday before the weekend settles down, but looks good. you guys alright. thanks steve. we're coming up on mornings onto the nine. nascar is back at sonoma raceway next month and coming up. we're going to talk live with one of the drivers who will be taking part in that race. how he's preparing to
savf weeks away and mark the final race of the season for fox sports, a race at sonoma raceway in one country, the only stop in northern california on the circuit elk grove native kyle larson, defending race champion in series champion. but christopher bell looking to take that checkered flag this season , christopher joins us here on the nine good morning to you. hello thank you for having me. thanks for being here. great to talk to you. i know you have the weekend in kansas finished fifth. you got a flat tire right? it seemed to be a big problem in that race this weekend. yeah i was one of the
many that suffered a flat tire in that race, but we're able to rebound and get home a great finish. that's great. well, congratulations on a big weekend, but let's talk about i want to talk about momentum because after you won the pole this weekend, you talked about momentum. fast cars, things are feeling good. everything's everything's rolling along you won your first cup series of the daytona road course. so how are we feeling right now? as the season was forward yeah, i feel really good. i really like where we're at with this number 20 car. it seems like we've got the ball rolling right now, and we've been able to click off a bunch of top tens, top fives and talking or speaking of sonoma. that was one of the racetracks that we definitely have circled on the schedule. it's a ton of fun and go out to northern california, one of the best races of the year. tell me about sonoma raceway, because certainly it's a different kind, of course, and we talked to people about here when we've covered nascar in the past, you know, one of the only stops is different in terms of the course different in terms of the fans. let's talk about the course first and how it stacks up with the rest of the circuit. yeah so i have relatively no experience
there compared to most last year was my first time i ever got to race at the racetrack and going there. we didn't have any practice or qualifying, so my experience level extends the distance of last year's race, so i don't have a ton of experience there. but i can tell you one thing. it's super slick, and it's a ton of fun. you know, we love whenever we go to slick racetracks, all the drivers doing this series because you're sliding around, and it allows drivers to showcase their talents. no practice racing laps around that track. it will make it a little different. so what? what did you take with you? when you left that track as you approach it again and saying, okay, if i'm circling this on the calendar, i want to make sure that when i come back, you know, and i'm reintroducing myself to that course i hit it the way i want to. yes so normally you would be able to take notes and then apply those for the next year. but this year with the next gen race car, all of the notes that we had from previous years are completely irrelevant, so it's going to be a toss up going into sonoma this
year as to who's going to be the favorite and who's going to be the best card? yeah it's a it's a fun way to go into it. i imagine, although a little less predictable, you know, when you comes to nascar, you know i have covered nascar here. i've covered in other parts of the country and in the midwest, and certainly it's a little different in the field of pandemic makes it a little different as well in terms of getting another fans, but i think one of the things people like about nascar as they can get up close and personal with all the drivers as well. the drivers can get to know the fans of the different raceways. were you able to kind of get a feel for wine country and this area when you were here before? yeah i mean, i love northern california. i've only been there once for sonoma, but i've ran the dirt tracks across the area a lot, so i love getting out to go to love getting out to california. it's one of our favorite stops of the year. yeah you talked about the dirt track. i know i was reading about you. growing up in norman, oklahoma on the dirt track fund things to do. what's it like? it's you know, to be seen this kind of success in your career to be having you know this momentum
that you're talking about it and really living this this driver dream that a lot of kids have. yeah it is a dream come true. and you know, i'm just very fortunate to be in the position. i am driving for joe gibbs racing, so hopefully we can start racking up some more winds and i'm able to stage begins racing for a period of time. well christopher bell. thank you so much for your time. we appreciate what chatting with you. best of luck, as the circuit continues, and we'll see you when you get out here and sonoma. thank you. we'll see you later. bye bye. alright it's nice to meet him and certainly that's a fun track. sonoma fun to watch. do you have a question i would have asked, is like that. what's it like to come to sonoma? there's all these wineries and good stuff around. he's busy. he's busy, young man. i don't know that he has a lot of leisure time. good to talk to him, though, for sure. right well, coming up on mornings onto the nine. the country is waiting on the supreme court's ruling on abortion. this all follows a weekend of coast to coast protest as the court weighs in on its much anticipated final decision. also the golden arches will be no more in one country

here is we preserved essentially the roe versus wade protection in colorado, because fundamentally shannon, what we believe is this is not about the government making that decision. it's about women making that decision bill backed by democrats that would guarantee abortion rights nationwide failed in the senate last week, but both sides have vowed to fight on in washington, carolina shively fox news happening today . former mixed martial arts champion cain velasquez could be granted bail will be in santa clara county court for a hearing over whether he will get released, his attorney, mark geragos, told the website. mm a junkie that he is hopeful the judge will grant bail. but just two months ago, the same judge who will be at today's hearing denied the laskas release. the former heavyweight champion is facing multiple charges, including attempted murder overall, an incident where he chased and shot at a man who had been accused of molesting one of cain's family members. new this morning. mcdonald's is selling its entire business operation in

demand. reporter rob dawson examines the escalating problem. food banks have always offered a lifeline for those struggling to eat with more than 38 million americans, including 12 million kids impacted by food insecurity , according to the usda. if it wasn't for this food pantry i would be in such but surging prices for food and gas is now causing more people to need assistant never used the food banks before i didn't have to. no leave it for people that needed it more. but now i really almost have to come. the labor department reported inflation reached 8.3% last month. and while that's less than the 8.5% seen in march, the numbers are still hovering around 40 year high something the nation's food banks are an immune to as many struggle to feed larger crowds and tighter budgets. this comes as officials at feeding america , the largest food assistance program in the country, say

eurt ready for the busy summer travel season. however the eu is reminding international air travelers at the rules involving masks in europe could still vary depending on the airline. italy is keeping its transit mask mandate in place for at least another month. and it's shorter . two pilots is getting worse and now airlines are warning it could lead to cancel flights. more travelers are flying again after more than two years of sluggish traveled during the pandemic. jetblue and spirit
have already reduced their summer flight options partially because of a lack of pilots. and airlines overall, have seen a 4% drop in pilots since 2019 in addition to a long struggle to hire pilots, more than 14,000 pilots would have to be hired every year for the next 10 years. to overcome that shortage in the summer travel season is about to shift into high gear. ktvu is tom baker examines the emerging trends and what industry experts predict for the coming months. the government said ticket prices in april alone jumped 18.6% 33% higher year over year. that whopping april increase is the largest seen since the government began issuing the report back in 1963. sky scanner is a 20 year old worldwide airlines search engine that watches prices literally by the nanosecond during the pandemic prices were artificially low. um as demand
was low. what we're seeing is essentially everything normalized now back to pre pandemic this year, we have really seen demand return. a month a month. bookings are increasing. that's true for international flying, but less so for domestic travel, though consumers spent nearly $8 billion on domestic flights in april that's actually down 13% from the previous month. a clear sign that many passengers are passing on prices, but actually there's still some incredible deals out there for people, lindsey says. sky scanner like other comprehensive travel sites, has the ability to watch prices for you and report back when they fluctuate significantly, we actually have an option on sky's gonna .com to search everywhere. tracking prices as demand moves around. they can actually, um, alert for price changes so you can see if it's shifting, which can give people peace of mind if they're deliberating as to what to do.
those deals come from being very flexible about where you want to go. and when you want to go recent survey of people we are 75% of people said that they were actually flexible about where they traveled. and when they traveled. now comes the summer travel season. flight cancelations are likely to be commonplace and skyrocketing fuel prices will force airlines to keep raising prices. to avoid system meltdowns. airlines have also cut schedules, which, with fewer seats available. raises spares. some folks simply need to hold off until after labor day when prices usually fall big time as demand evaporates. tom baker, ktvu fox two news well, she grew up watching baseball. you know, my next guest is one of the main ingredients in a dominant new york yankee team that won four world series when he played center field number 51 bernie williams played from 91 to 2006, all with one team. the new york yankees. he is here. you're also you may not know
that he is a grammy nominated musician. and joining us here in studio is bernie to talk about something to bring awareness to something that's very serious. yes so we'll talk about that, too. we'll talk about baseball and music. it's a great interview. my goodness. yeah i'm happy to be here. thank you so much for having me that. let's talk about your father and the breathless campaign because you got involved because this disease we're about to talk about that you explain more about took your father's life. unfortunately yes, it did in 2000 and one my father, burnaby williams sr. he was my hero. he was the one that taught me how to play guitar really took me to the baseball field when i was a little kid, and still those great life lessons that i still live by through this day. but in 2000 and one he passed away from a rare long disease called area pathetic pulmonary fibrosis or cf, and, uh, since about five years ago, i teamed up with behringer ingelheim, this company out of germany, raising awareness about this disease.
that is not a lot of people know about. but there is a six some significant numbers that we know you have to pay attention now because it's affecting a lot of people knowledge. bring, for example, now that people are finding out is there something that people can do? to let's say , figure out they have it and get better treatment options. i think you know the most important thing to point out about this campaign is still raising raising awareness about the fact that if you feel some of the symptoms that are attributed to ppf, which can be also attributed to other lung diseases, like you know, uh, copd, asthma, bronchitis. there's certain certain parameters that need to be, you know tested, so we are encouraging people if you feel some of the symptoms which are included, you know, uh, persistent cough, you know, you get fatigued and tired with things that you usually take from granite. you got to go to the doctor and you have to rule out the possibility of it. pf just to go to the doctor as soon
as they can, so they can rule it out of your life because it's a chronic disease, and it's unfortunately a fatal disease. my dad was misdiagnosed for about five years until the right doctor made the right diagnosis . and after that we had for about three or four years after that, but it is a devastating disease, and a lot of people sh know if they had caught it earlier. he might still be with us. you know, now with you know the progress that they have made on the research, there's options. to enhance the quality of the life of the patients that have it and, uh, maybe, perhaps lengthened, lengthening their lives as well and just to make sure that they know that they're not alone. and you know, we have a network of doctors. caretakers and the people that are there to help and it's i think it's an important thing so you have to do is go to type in bernie williams and breathless is all this information comes up and then also we have another website called lungs and new .com where they can get all that information as well. great. let's talk about your music because first of all your major
league baseball player, all star and now your grammy nominated musician latin grammy nominated two things that i always wanted to do that. i never got to do. my goodness, you're playing guitar or yeah, i mean, i started playing guitar with my father. as i said, before i started when i was about eight years old. i used to watch him play guitar at night. and i asked him, you know when i was a that can you teach me how to play and he was like, of course, and he taught me my first couple, of course in the guitar and i fell in love with the instrument up to this day. you know, music has always been a very important part of my lines. callused? yes, callouses. um, my, my fred finger, and, uh, i was able to after i retired, go to the manhattan school of music and finish career a bachelor's degree in jazz performance. so now like they say, in the music industry and another cat looking for a gig now but that's great. you know, i think the very first time people saw a new you were doing was when derek jeter retired. you played at his retirement ceremony, right? yes
you know the captain, right? so people know you guys are close friends and here are some pictures of it. do you remember that day and what it felt like to be in front of all those people? oh, my god. that was that was an incredible day to be part of that ceremony. i mean, just, you know. witnessing history, but i wasn't to worry about the people in the front. i was more worried about the people in the back. the old jesus in the back the hall of famer saying, oh, okay, you played baseball, but i've seen you can play a guitar. it's almost like you know, a guy who is like a good baseball player almost can't be a good musician . they probably don't expect it. but after that performance, you know, i sort of, you know, kind of like cemented myself into our kids. he can play a little bit and i had a lot a lot of respect from those guys. let's talk about you and center field at the yankee stadium now i grew up in san francisco giants fan, a group in san francisco, however, that 1998 yankees team was one of my all time favorites. you had all kinds of all stars,
including jeter, but other people that you've got to see like mariano rivera when they were young. was that like did you know that these guys are going to gel and become the team? they did? well, i think we have the conditions in the minor leagues that were, you know, very they were excellent to breed. these kind of players, you know that we had a great scouting system. we can, you know, signed us players to play in the minor leagues, and i think i came up a little bit before them, but i had an opportunity to see a lot of them spring training. jorge posada, derek, you know here here, derek. probably that was his 3000 hit. he hit a home run. he had always had a knack for the one of the very first setbacks ever, right? yeah. yeah i think you know the first game he played in cleveland. he started the game and he was, you know, just the first year as a rookie, and he, you know, he hit a home run in his first game. so he always had a knack for the dramatic and just come through and clutch situations, so i mean, he was just our captain. now he's he was just an incredible player. i have to ask you one last thing. after your team won the world series in
1998, you were free agent and there was a big parade in new york and people were shouting. stay stay! stay remember that. yes i do. remember that into your decision? absolutely yes. yeah i mean, when you have an opportunity to remain and one team for your whole career. you have to take advantage of that, and i think i was so fortunate to remain my whole career with the yankees. and after that 98 series we want to get in 1999. and we want to get into 1000. so it was just an incredible experience and i'm so grateful. 51 center fielder bernie thank you so much for coming in. thank you for having me on a huge baseball fan, and i'm getting to meet one of my baseball idols. really appreciate. thank you. good luck tonight at the coliseum. absolutely, yes. casa to watch fun to watch. right. let's swing over to san francisco here and the bay to breakers race has returned for the first time in three years, organizers called off the race in 2020 and 21, of course, due to covid restrictions. people

creatures. even a stingray disentangling them a lot easier than the nets themselves. balloons were already attached at an earlier dive, and now the divers had just enough air to the bags to start lifting those nets so they can cut them away from the wreck. as the year in the bags expand. one set net is lose, it quickly rises to the surface where boats are waiting to get it. got it that feel to get it out of the. it's amazing . what's interesting is what's going to happen to those nets because they're going to be actually cleaned up and turned into all kinds of things every pound of nylon that we make from recycled content is one less pound of nylon we have to make from petroleum. nelson is with aqua phil. it's orange county facility, recycled carpets and, yes, these nets into nylon. that is re used to make things like new carpets and more. beachwear
