6:09 pm
be a lot more flu cases. people getting infected but also people getting hospitalized. reporter: he expects we will see far more flu cases this winter than covid cases. two new studies shared a similar sentiment. one study predicted there could be an additional 100,000 to 400 thousand more flu-related hospitalizations this fall and winter compared to an average year. >> estimates are right on target. it comes with some level of uncertainty. but in the uncertainty around how bad it could be, meaning it is going to be worse than last year for sure. reporter: how much worse? that is unclear. >> the reason we are not sure is because we do not have information from other parts of the world because everybody did not have bad flu in the last year or so. reporter: he explains since we
6:10 pm
do not have population immunity from the flu last year it leaves us more vulnerable. usually scientists will look at the flu prevalence in the southern hemisphere where the winter season just finished to help predict what may happen in the u.s. >> empirical data from the southern hemisphere is that flu rates have remained at historically low levels in australia and most of the southern hemisphere. in australia fewer than 10% of the flu tests they have done have been positive. they have only had 483 cases and no deaths. reporter: but we cannot be too safe. >> because if we have a covid surge and a flu surge it creates all sorts of extra pressure on the hospitals. reporter: he added we have already started to see shifting immunity with other viruses like rsv, a common respiratory virus usually contracted in the winter but became more common in the summer this year. so he says when changes like that happen it could further prolong our current flu season
6:11 pm
even past april or may when it is supposed to finish. stephanie sierra, abc 7 news. ama: since the symptoms for flu and covid are so similar, how do doctors recommend we differentiate them? reporter: they are very similar. the main difference to covid is upper respiratory symptoms. for flu look for fever, cough, cold and muscle pain and for covid, it is cough, runny nose, with more of a focus on upper respiratory issues. certainly if you are struggling to breathe. but as always consult your doctor first if you experience any of these symptoms, because it can certainly be easy to mix them together. ama: thank you. dan: netflix employees walk off the job. the changes they want as the process the company's handling of the new dave chapelle comedy special. ama: and more efforts to end gun violence in oakland.

6:41 pm
area, the inferno certainly left a lasting mark and a determination to prevent it from happening again. >> the people that are looking to the magnifiers we have right now and were not around for that fire, forget that was the first one we had. all the way back in 1991 in october. people did not think those areas could burn down, but they did. and you are very aware that they can happen again. >> a big challenge is just educating people who choose to live in this beautiful area to know that they live in harm's way. it is the topography, it is the weather, and it is the fuel. and part of the fuel is the houses themselves and the other part is the vegetation. those are the only things we ca. cannot do anything about the weather early topography. but you can do something about the removing dead trees is a crucial piece of the puzzle.
6:42 pm
where these trees have been thinned out the fire will probably stay on the ground. that will be a knee-high fire and will not have a lot of fuel to ignite. it will not ignite into the tree canopies which means they will not be a lot of those really hot intensity fire embers that then blow into the community that could create a real danger for the community. >> there are many hazards around houses that cause it to go house to house. a lot of homes have shingles on the outside and they can be very combustible. the heat from that will generate enough heat to start the next house on fire and so on moving through. the other major danger is vegetation around the homes. since the inspection program is in place we are able to go out and let people know if they have any kind of dangerous around their home and let them know what they can do to make their home more safe and then we go and we do a reinspection to make sure they have done it. it has been a great advantage to us in terms of having properties prepared and fire safe.
6:43 pm
>> it looks like this wholeally. this is a 5.5 acre canyon. a lot of vegetation and trees, so there is a lot of dead wood. if there were a fire down here it would just race up the canyon walls to the houses. there are about 35 houses in this canyon. the city does not have all the resources it needs to handle all the fire work that needs to be done. so fire to -- volunteers can do a lot of volunteering. we live in a high fire zone. >> typically here in california, our winds come well out of the bag. they bring in all the moisture. instances of hot and dry air coming off the continent from the east and blowing down into the area are only increasing. that is what climate change is doing. so the danger we had that day in october in 1991, those occasions are increasing and that is what
6:44 pm

you will notice it is all lit up. most of this is light rain hitting the ground. let's start around laurel grove avenue. we are seeing what roadways. san francisco down the peninsula into san bruno come also wet. you will notice light rain from fremont boulevard heading across 680. the evening commute a little on the slow side. that storm system that came in last night over the higher terrain is a light level 1 system to stall -- it just all over us so it is feeding us the moisture. heavier rain is coming. a flash flood watch thursday until friday. expecting the potential for debris flows and flash flooding. scattered showers in the bay area into tomorrow morning and then into tomorrow afternoon the rain line will begin to shift into the north and east bay. high temperatures tomorrow will be coming up with scattered showers. looking ahead for the next storm

friday it is a quick mover in the morning. a stronger storm is coming our way for the weekend which is an atmospheric river. saturday for the walk to end alzheimer's just a brief break with clouds. seven day is a level two for sunday into monday. so stay tuned. dan: an atmospheric river runs through it. ama: could the weather impact football at all? larry: i do not know how jimmy g. handles atmospheric rivers. his first priority is the colts but he is back in the saddle. cutting ready to start once again for the 49ers.

larry: kind of a weird vibe around the 49ers as they head into that sunday night game with the colts. you have the quarterback situation in flux. more questions about kyle shanahan's playcalling and some openly asking if this is now a team in crisis. we expect jimmy garoppolo to be back. jimmy g. was limited in practice tonight because of a nagging calf injury. trey lance did not practice because of his own knee injury. the offense predicated on over r and a pretty conservative passing attack. the niners are not scaring anybody. garoppolo says they need to get momentum going. >> when we are at our best is
6:54 pm
when we get into a rhythm. when the run game and pass game are working together we have a couple easy ones. ase things are clicking and we can get into a rhythm, that is when we are at our best. really get into a drive and get things rolling. when we get off the field quick it puts our whole team in a bad situation. that is the football we have played in the past year when we play our best. we can turn one score into two real quick. larry: let's see if they can get it rolling against the colts. deshaun watson has not played a single down for the houston texans this year. he has all sorts of legal issues. but that may not stop the miami dolphins from acquiring him in a trade. he is facing lawsuits for sexual assault and misconduct. the texans were originally asking for three first-round draft picks. miami has --

the warriors home opener is tomorrow night against the l.a. clippers. they surprised the lakers last night at staples. steph curry had a triple-double but did not shoot particularly well. last year a game like this would certainly have been a loss, but the roster this year is much deeper. you have the new guys who can space the floor. depth that might just reignite the old slogan, deeath in numbers. >> the fact everyone on the floor contributed in a meaningful way speaks to our depth and how we want to play going forward. excited about that. >> we have a long way to go. if we can continue to playlay together and figure those roles out, we have a chance. just allowing us to play our game. everybody on this team knows how to play the right way. larry: the astros are just one
6:56 pm
win away from reaching the world series. another victory tonight in boston. game five, red sox fans did not have much to cheer about. houston chance -- fans sure did. deep and over the green monster, 1-0. and things unraveled for boston in the sixth. alvarez again gets the best of him, a two run double. this turned out to be a five-run 6th. what's a two out, two run single? fatal for boston. astros just one win away from reaching the world series. in the national league you have the braves leading the dodgers 5-0 in the fifth. if atlanta wins, they would go up 3-1. nobody going to be crying about that situation here. ama: my friends are all texting me, what is wrong with our
6:57 pm
