of packages to encourage employees to leave voluntarily. and in food-related news, wendy's is adding another way to get free food through its mobile app. it's launched a new loyalty program called wendy's rewards letting members cash in on points earned for purchases for things like chicken nuggets, frostees and burgers. members will your honor ten points for every dollar they spend and for a limited time double points on your first order. i'm not sure if meteorologist kari hall likes lunch for breakfast, but i certainly do here in the new york area. back over to you. my first job was at wendy's, so that's a little tie there. let's head out to mountain view to check out our temperature trend. our morning will start with clouds and a nice afternoon. we're going to talk more about that and what's ahead coming up next. kari, maybe you can teach us how to make square burgers. an alert for the altamont.
welcome back. dark and early taking a live look at the golden gate bridge. not a lot going on there, one car. mike will have a look at that later. we will start with meteorologist kari hall monitoring things not just here in the bay area but another earthquake up north. yes. so this one is just off the coast of vancouver, canada.
6.4 and it's on that pacific plate. we're pulling up the usgs website because this is just now breaking. as of right now there's not a tsunami warning but that' and we also know about the 7.8. earlier this morning along the lucien islands triggering a tsunami watch but it did not trigger a tsunami. that has since expired. a tsunami is an earthquake that occurs under water, causes the land to shift and those waves can travel very rapidly, up to 400 miles per hour. now we have to watch out for that because the waves traveling so fast can become basically displaced and can travel hundreds of miles. it forcesha head up along the coast and for the
inland areas can cause a very destruckid destructive waves. one can trigger another and that's most likely what we are seeing right now as we talk about that new earthquake that just occurred near vancouver and this earlier one that was much larger occurring along that same plate boundary farther to the north. that's something we'll be watching as we go throughout the morning with a possibility of more earthquakes throughout the morning. still a wide range in temperatures with some upper 50s in half moon bay but some mid-80s in the inland east bay. that was the reason why, it was a very humid afternoon if you are feeling that. that will continue but then as we look at our seven-day forecast, at least our temperatures are down combined with that humidity. we're looking at mid-80s for most of our inland areas.
as that humidity starts to drop and we're going to see our temperatures going back up by the end of the week. san francisco still looking at some fog and drizzle at times. we're going to keep it cool here with highs reaching into the mid-60s. mike, how is it looking for the commute right now? looking good. the light volume of traffic is why they do the construction work or any construction work early in the morning. you do see a few more headlights. they are steadily moving but i believe they're single file at one point as you travel in from the north bay. the map shows you no major problem but i did circle at the bottom of our map we have that 101 alemany project. it will be closed from 11:00 to 5:00 the next morning for the southbound side as they continue on the barriers there. the rest of bottom of your screen, a slowdown we see every day, it migrates down,
unrelated to a crash that's in the area. the slowing should clear and the crash should be on the shoulder. back to you, marcus. developing for you right now the man authorities say ambushed a federal judge's family in new jersey on sunday is now suspected in another recent deadly ambush. he disguised himself as a fedex driver and opened fire on the home of the judge esther salas. her 20-year-old son died. her husband was critically injured. the next day he was found dead and is now being looked at in an ambush 11 days ago in san bernardinoount he also killed another attorney at his home. >> a lot of people believe that some time this week l.a. mayor eric garcetti may issue a second stay-at-home order. he's been hinting at it for
several days now. the order would shut down all but essential businesses. l.a. would become the first large city in the u.s. to fully roll back its reopening. more than 2,200 patients are hospitalized near their recent record high. more than half of yesterday's new cases were people under 41 years old. california is leading a new lawsuit filed by 20 states to block a white house rule that would roll back the clean water act. in april of 2019 president trump issued an executive order to change the rule which the epa says increases transparency and speeds up the outdated review process. state attorney general xavier becerra argues the change would limit a state's ability to protect water bodies by restricting their reviews on projects approved by the federal government. he calls it an end run to speed up fossil fuel projects. back on the court. coming up next on "today in the
bay," what's expected as the nba resumes games today and the big announcement from the nfl. plus -- >> how you doing? >> we didn't always know it would be this way. what we're learning about the filming of the "friends reunion" amid the pandemic. and happening now, secretary of state mike pompeo is in copenhagen, denmark, right now on a u.s. diplomatic trip talking about china and the arctic. we'll wait to hear what he has to say about breaking news this morning. the sudden shutdown of the chinese consulate in houston. pompeo is also expected to meet with greenland's foreign minister.
