the components of the federal infrastructure investment in jobs act president biden signed it into law last month house speaker o north bay neighborhood devastated by wildfire four years ago. they did this yesterday officials. say new investments may prevent future tragedies abc 7 news reporter cornell barnard was there. this was santa rosa's coffee park in 2017. zero for the fire 3,000 homes lost across the city more than a thousand of them right here in this neighborhood. the catastrophic laws hard to fathom. we lost lives. we lost businesses. we lost livelihoods and we lost homes north bay congressman mike thompson and house speaker nancy pelosi toured coffee park saturday where many homes have now been rebuilt you suffered so
5:13 am
much. came together so beautifully. you listened to each other in terms of how to build back better pelosi speaking to fire survivors at this news conference touting the passage of the infrastructure investment and jobs act providing 1.2 trillion and funding for jobs highway improvements and wildfire prevention in california. the truth is we can improve our infrastructure. we can improve our vegetation management our preparedness and these things can help us prevent the kind of catastrophic damage. we lived through in 2017 wildfire survivor. lisa frizzy is still rebuilding her home. she says preventing future wildfires is crucial. we're fire family and one of the things we're working for now is we love our family, but we don't want any new members. we don't want any more fire survivors to have to join us the new funding couldire. for the city specifically we're looking at things like we need
5:14 am
to build three fire stations within the wildland urban interface. so there's potentially funding for that. we need to build a fire station. that's within an area that's underserved and has been marginalized for a long time in roseland. so potentially they're spending for that. the investments can't guarantee more wildfires won't happen, but new tools can keep resilient communities like coffee park safer and better protected in santa rosa cornell bernard abc 7 news. the salvation arm hard at work here in the bay area right now helping thousands of families. make sure this holiday season is a memorable one. the san francisco chapter is handing out toys and holiday cheer as part of its angel tree program 2000 children homes. so excited will receive a big bag of gifts. families had to pre-register to receive the holiday goodies. the salvation army says this past year has been an especially tough one for many. we're we're seeing an increase in the number of people asking for help. and unfortunately, we're seeing a decrease in the number of donations. i think there's a lot of issues,
5:15 am
you know inflation and the pandemic and you know, there's a lot of it been a lot of concern about crime and here in the bay area salvation army says there are fewer donations coming in through the red kettles near busy shopping areas. so they're trying to get the word out that they do need more donations to help meet the growing demand and need. okay happening today a christmas tree giveaway for people. in the bayview or hunters point area of san francisco every year the guardsmen sell christmas trees to raise money for at-risk youth and then the leftovers are given away to families in need who maybe can't afford one of their own. so today's giveaway will be in the bayview on jennings street starting at one this afternoon. there will be another giveaway tomorrow in the fillmore. and the urgent threat posed by climate change is driving an intense search for solutions abc 7 weather anchor spencer christian has a look at that are homegrown if you want to see the
5:16 am
future of climate sustainable architecture. you could look under this floating lab in san francisco bay or maybe examine the oyster friendly panels embedded in this marsh at chrissy field or perhaps like me you could visit the california college of the arts where the floating lab and oyster project were engineered and where architecture students are now building on what they've learned like using locally source materials to kind of you know enrich our like local habitats, the current student projects were assigned by professor. margaret ikeda with many incorporating native dogwood used by indigenous bay area peoples several student created reef prototypes have already been placed under the college's floating research platform near the port of oakland to learn more about the sea life. they might support and other uses expanded from there. so my challenge to them was what could you design with this material that is easily source with the seed of your design that was going into the water as something that could begin to take on.
5:17 am
above water or below water that they care about like the floating lab and the oyster platforms installed at chrissy field. the idea is to create architecture that supports native organisms engineered habitats that help structures like buildings levies and seawalls adapt to climate change like the environment itself. the concepts are broad and diverse. so basically the idea is to make a bunch of little module nests that become a ecosystem and for my project. to explore the creation of a bioplastic technically edible, but the idea would be that it'd be paneling my final project for the class. what inspired you to all of you to focus on this particular project. we all maybe subconsciously dug into what we really care about right and then tackled that and i think it comes from like the idea of hope over the years students from california college of the arts have competed in many design competitions producing the kind of ideas that are you finding their way into
5:18 am
real life projects from parks to levees to urban seawalls and ultimately turningntion.erere a. they know their impact of their profession on the environment and potentially on their future. t was spencer christian reporting the design class and those projects you saw along san francisco bay are part of the college's architectural ecology's lab which collaborations between designers researchers and manufacturers. okay, lisa. let's go to check out side. we are tracking rain and a lot of snow up in the sierra this week, too. yeah, once that winter storm warning goes up, which will probably be tomorrow. it could be up through the end of the if that's we're gonna have multiple waves of energy and rain and snow visiting us for several days. now, the models have scaled back somewhat on the amount, but still we're looking at a good amount for the bay area that we needed.
5:19 am
we're not going to be in any sort of flooding potential but winds will be gusty at times and we could see some ponding on the roadways as we get into tuesday and wednesday potentially the end of the week into christmas eve as well live doppler 7 shows the activity up to the north of us and we go in closer. there is some fog. it's a developing over into the east bay also a bit in the north bay not as widespread as yesterday, but there are pockets where you need to watch out especially up in santa rosa there five mile visibility and concord and livermore and elsewhere not doing too bad, but the temperatures wow, check it out 32 in blackhawk 34, danville. upper 30s in pleasanton and 37 in livermore. look at the peninsula though 32 mountain view redwood city is in the upper 30s with 41 in novato. so overall not quite as cold, but still plenty of thirties out there as we look at coit tower looking at the valley fog in parts this morning chili and by the afternoon partly cloudy with 40s and 50s again, they'll be
5:20 am
warmest down around the south bay and looking at a chance of rain arriving tomorrow, but more widespread rain arrives overnight into tuesday. so far since october 1st, santa rosa's picked up 18 inches of rain, that is 205 percent of normal san francisco 12 and a half inches oakland. almost 11 san jose almost five inches and over 11 inches at sfo. so way better than we had done last year and the year before but there's still a lot of ground to make up as we look at sunday and we get into the clouds. it won't be as sunny in the north bay and you'll notice a few areas of prep some drizzle as we into your monday, but overall cloudy skies. this is your monday night with the front still well offshore and as we track it and get closer to your tuesday morning commute six o'clock. it's raining in the north bay. it pushes across the bay by noon time and by 3 o'clock. we still have rain over into the east bay the south bay and it's really 11 o'clock it begins to wind down.
5:21 am
so rainfall totals monday into tuesday night over an inch to near two inches in the north bay into the third, san francisco. over an inch in oakland the south bay about a half inch and looking at anywhere from about three quarters of an inch in livermore to maybe a half inch along the coast still looking at snowfall totals that could be anywhere from four to maybe seven feet of snow through christmas day. so low 50s today on the peninsula. mid-50 san jose 48 in vallejo the accuweather 7-day forecast, maybe a few showers into monday, but overall we get the rain early tuesday. it's a level. them into wednesday and then the next storm arriving on its heels on thursday taking us through christmas eve christmas day. and looks like the rain wants to keep coming not a whole lot after christmas liz but enough to maybe keep a level one. wow, what we needed with everyone traveling. it's sure going to be tricky for everybody this week. definitely. all right, lisa. thanks just ahead. not the face covering that to
