thirties for lows valley ford again. most of this, almost all of this is marin sonoma cannon. dropped to 37 walker creek ranch east of marshall, 37. west petaluma. i saw 38 39 39 3 observations so i went with the 38 the casio 39 freestone 39 point reyes station. i mean, you're talking almost on the coast, almost 42. that is really cold water. temps are incredibly cold, but they obey briefly hit 47 degrees. i have a message into the weather service. they're looking to see the last time that happened because nobody can remember. 48 san francisco bowie, you do not see all consistently water temps this code for us. it's been a long, long time, so that translates into some much cooler conditions, especially coast and back. we are running noticeably cooler than 24 hours ago. san roses down 15 degrees nevada 14 livermore. 10 conquered nine. so if it feels cooler, it is now there's a lot going on. but mount diablo is only 43. that's really cool to have a north wind

began to see improvement within days that within a matter of days, they'll be able to find formula on the shelves within days, it will get better. but it will be a few weeks before work back to normal shortage was caused in large part by the lack of action by the fda, and by corporate greed and consolidation. president biden has invoked the defense production act to boost the production of baby formula and relief for families within saint vincent babies could be on the way soon. those first flights of baby formula are scheduled now. federal officials, putting the finishing touches on plans to import formula from europe, millions of children that were affected by the formula shortage right now, some parents are turning to potentially harmful practices to find ways to feed their little ones. let's talk more about this by bringing in kaiser permanente pediatrician dr kristen jackson. thanks for being with us. hi good morning. thanks for having me today. of course, is it's such an important topic as the formula shortages. ongoing babies are still being born and also repeat
reading reports. some older children are being sent to the hospital because they can't get enough nutrition. how are hospitals handling this dire situation? yes well, certainly with our newborns here in our hospitals, we really encourage mothers, um to breastfeed and most of the mothers that are having babies. that's their goal . so we are supporting them. in that way. we have great nurses as well as lactation consultants , inpatient to sort support babies and that way and their families. um and then also to keep up a reliable, uh, breast milk supply with pumping, so that's one way we're supporting our families. once these families are discharged from the hospital, they have the added support of our lactation consultants that they see. relatively when the baby is 3 to 5 days, all taken to support the goal of most of our of our mothers and our families. let's specifically addressed those
babies who are exclusively formula fed. essentially the breastfeeding ship has sailed. it's not a possibility. nothing the parents can do now. are you hearing from parents who are stretching or limiting the formula? they're able to give their little ones in hopes of making it last. yes certainly. we've heard stories about that, and we are strongly discouraging watering down the formulas because that can really lead to some serious health complications and babies. for healthy babies who are on the formulas that have been recalled . we are encouraging them to switch over to alternative equivalent formulas, and they generally do okay with this after several days of an end of an adjustment. the other thing we're encouraging is for families to reach out to their local, cbs or target or walmart prior to going to see what they have in stock as well as checking online. they're sort of always been a quiet yet robust
online breast milk exchange. i know there were milk banks. we're talking about what happens in neighborhoods. what do you say to parents? who get a note saying, oh, there's a lady who lives you know a couple of streets over. she's offering up the breast milk from her freezer because her baby's grown out of it. what do you say to that? yeah. so we encourage families if they're going to go down the breast, um milk bank route to use an accredited source again just because there are better controls for health and safety. we also are discouraging families to make homemade formulas. these were things that were done in the 19 forties and fifties. um and it wasn't without risk to the infant. so we're definitely discouraging that and we've seen in the past babies being hospitalized after having homemade formulas. remember in the days after both my little boys were born, it was all about the weight gain. gaining weight means better health. are you seeing babies
who aren't gaining the weight? they should be when they come in, maybe for a regular checkup. so not at this time. we definitely especially for myself as an outpatient pediatrician. we're getting the emails and families are stressed more the families with babies who are a little bit older versus the new moms. and so we are providing as much research assurances we can and if needed, bringing in babies more frequent or more often, if there's that concern and of course, there were children who are not babies or infants who were lying formula for their special dietary needs. will. doctor i'm so glad that we could shine a spotlight on this ongoing crisis. there should be help coming very soon, and i know parents are eager for that news. thank you so much, doctor jack jackson for having me today course, of course, is something we've been talking about here in our newscast and also sort of in the background. it is. it is a parent's worst fear that they are not able to feed their baby end of story. so there's also a mental health component for the parents who are struggling with something they can't do much
about. parents have been going through a lot. at least last few years, right? yes, they have a big weight out there, so we'll continue to follow that story. the investigation continues into what led up to a shooting that left two men dead in san francisco. coming up on mornings onto the nine. well, no one police officer fired. they're gone. ktvu is amanda quintana will have a live update for us. but first as covid continues to surge across the u. s the cdc is now urging a booster shot for children. i'm steve harrigan in atlanta. that story ahead.
san francisco could be more than a billion dollars short per year in funding needed to meet a state affordable housing goal. new requirements go into place next year that will require the city to build 82,000 new homes by the year 2030. over a third of those have to be affordable. the mayor's office of housing and community development, says the city will need billions more
to meet that goal. the cdc wants parents of children over the age of five to take action now against a rising tide of covid infections. reporter steve harrigan is in atlanta with the new booster. those children are now eligible for cases of covid-19 are increasing across the u. s federal health officials are warning it could get worse over the coming months . nearly one third of americans live in high risk areas for infection. cdc advisors, urging americans to use the tools available to them to help limit the spread. we urge local leaders to encourage the use of prevention strategies like masking and public endorsed settings and increasing access to testing and treatment. another important tool vaccinations. cdc now recommending a third dose of the fighter vaccine for children between the ages of five and 11. the fda authorizing the booster to be offered at least five months after a child's latest shot. one pediatrician believes the authorization for boosters comes at a good time as kids get
ready for activities like summer camp and travel. we want to make sure that god forbid if they do get the virus that they don't have a severe illness from the virus, and also, you know less of a chance of getting it on to others who may be more immune compromise. just how many kids will get get a booster remains the big question only about 30% have had the initial two doses of the fighter vaccine since vaccinations among that age group were opened up in november . but some parents say they are eager to get the extra layer of protection feel more safe if he is protected because i think everybody right now is like to relax about it. the us is currently averaging more than 100,000 new cases each day. in atlanta. steve harrigan, ktvu fox two news. salable a bay area attraction for locals and tourists alike is reopening today in a whole new way. how

pronounced dead at the scene. the other died at the hospital, but it's still unclear what each of the men died from whether it's related to the initial assault call or the police shooting. police say they are still trying to figure that out. officers were equipped with body worn cameras, as always, if anyone does have a surveillance camera in the area that may have captured the incident, we do ask that they contact the police department. because that footage can be instrumental in helping us to identify what happened before and after officers arrived on scene. the incident is being investigated by the san francisco district attorney's office, as well as the police departments, investigative services division internal affairs, the department of police, accountability and the medical examiner. the police department says it's committed to transparency and accountability and will hold a town hall about this incident within 10 days. this is a developing story, so there's still a lot that they we don't know right now, but we expect to learn more soon. we will bring those you those details as soon

art. history oh, i wanted to express how i digested the unceasing history of art created by human beings. these paintings , for example, are inspired by ancient chinese vases valued at tens of millions of dollars. like kami says no one thought the vases would one day hold such value when they were created nameless artisans through the paintings on those faces, but through the history, it all became valuable. and when i saw them they moved me and motivated me to paint them. the works are open to the public until june, 25th. if you can't make it to the big apple, you can tour the exhibition virtually by visiting gagosian .com. or by using a vr headset. ted lindner fox news. a new analysis suggests the irs could be missing out on $50 billion in unpaid crypto taxes. the british banking firm, barkley says anonymous crypto transactions make it difficult, if not impossible, for uncle sandy track down, everyone involved who owes taxes and let's say the $15 million number is an
