12:01 pm
some lines. we'll get to that in a minute. but you have to realize that this is the second translate tube slowdown in just six days. civil engineer maciel ely was one of the folks in the transbay tube under the bay and what he says rapidly became a frightening and somewhat panicky situation. we stayed for more than two hours out there with no power. there was no light all dark. we use our cell phone. there was oxygen deficiency. we kind of like people were didn't receive proper direction. what to do. people were very afraid. i was afraid, he said. bart provided no moral support, either myself. i've tried several times to call 911 and the birth police and for the last important told me, he we are not the not the one these issues you should call and talk with go to the board website. at one point, he says. the operator said that passengers were told they were going to get off the train and cross over to the other track. she told that there was a big slope you guys need to take care of old people because
12:02 pm
they cannot like go there. that meant that older passengers would have to be assisted by younger ones. these told you to walk literally across the railroad tracks and right so you so there wasn't like you're going to go on a bridge or up over or anything. you had to walk across the across. but that did not happen because the power finally came back on. it was a horrible experience. i can see when power was restored. the train returned to west oakland station where paramedics were waiting. some of like the board passenger did the medical checkup while we got off the board, so, yeah, it was horrible . i'm very angry with bald and the services. it's not the first time that they are doing. okay here's exactly where we are, according to bart. this means that ah right now. they're single tracking. that means that the yellow line and the blue line trains are going transbay, yellow and blue lines are going translate. the red and green
12:03 pm
lines have been canceled. orange line continues to operate yellow line that goes to the airport. passengers headed to millbrae can board the shuttle train at sfo to their destination at millbrae. that is the situation. and it's likely not to get straightened out very soon because of all the backups. we will be back here at four and five to tell you exactly what's going on. tom baker, ktvu fox two new trouble for commuters this morning, tom. thank you. we're learning the family of a 93 year old man who died, is suing a senior living facility for allegedly serving him dishwashing liquid instead of juice. court documents show the family of peter shorter has filed a wrongful death and elder abuse suit against atrial park of san mateo to residents of the facility died earlier this year after the company says they were accidentally given dish detergent. tracking the tropics . now hurricane fiona moved near bermuda, generating powerful waves along the coast. this comes days after the storm hit puerto rico. recovery efforts are underway on the island down and is robert ray reports there
12:04 pm
is more concerned heading into the weekend. powerful winds stood up waves in bermuda on friday morning as hurricane fiona churned close to the coast pummeled the island with heavy rain and left thousands of people without power. the storm spare bermuda from any widespread destruction. still residents were prepared. i am right. on south shore. like there. i so my patio doors or branded whatever are already boarded up. they've been boarded since tuesday on its path through the atlantic, making its way toward northeastern canada for what forecasters say could be an historic storm for the region. as it moves north. people in the eastern us are also feeling the impact of fiona officials along the coast are warning about the potential for rip currents and strong surf this weekend. now this is the time you know this is a good
12:05 pm
this is the surf season, september and october because of you know, all the hurricanes that are out there to come up the coast and give us a nice little push. meanwhile recovery efforts are still in their early stages in puerto rico and the dominican republic. are still trying to reach hundreds of people isolated by blocked roads. days after fiona tore through the region. much of puerto rico is still without power and water. the island experiences a heatwave officials warned. repairs could take months or even years to complete . forecasters are tracking yet another tropical disturbance, this one expected to head up into the gulf of mexico in bermuda. robert ray ktvu, fox two news alright, so let's bring in ktvu meteorologist rosemary oroczo with a better look at the current track of the storm. now, roseberry andre. so fiona, of course category four very powerful storm at this time as a barrels towards the canadian coastline, giving you a look here at where it is. you can see well off the eastern seaboard of the united states.
12:06 pm
but as we give you a look at what is expected into the coming days at a category four will continue its path to the north and slightly to the east. it does look like it's going to lose steam as it moves closer to canada's nova scotia and prince edward island area. but again, it looks like saturday into sunday does begin to die down a little bit. the winds expected to be right about 60 mph. of course, this is just a projection, as it could change into the coming days. we'll be tracking that for you as well as your local forecast. coming up in just a little bit will see you. then this newness search underway into what sparked a massive fire early this morning at an industrial warehouse in san jose. it started shortly after one o'clock this morning on archer street in the alviso neighborhood. dozens of firefighters battled the flames for several hours, and the fire commander on scene says the fire spread well beyond that warehouse. it looked like there was some vehicles. looks good commercial trucking company vehicles. it looks like a small shed or structure, wooden
12:07 pm
structure that was also involved. and wood pallets. i would say that what we receive from where we're at firefighters heard from witnesses who said one person was entered in the fire, but that reported injury has not yet been confirmed. today mass requirements are easing across california, the state no longer recommending everyone mask up indoors. ktb is amanda quintana shows us the changes happening today and what's happening on bark soon? for months, california leaders have been recommending masking inside public settings, whether you're vaccinated or not, but now that's changing. we're kind of at the lowest point. we've been in the history of the pandemic right now, not only in numbers of cases, but numbers of hospitalizations and the numbers of people dying. infectious disease expert, dr peter chin, hong says that means in california, we can take off our masks. for now, the state is recommended universal, masking only in counties with a high covid community level. that's
12:08 pm
measurement looking at the amount of virus in an area and it's hospital capacity. the good news is cdc data shows no california counties are categorized as high, most of california and all big area counties are in the low category. the big picture is everybody's moving in the right direction. so even though they may be a few yellows in the state, i think the trajectory is good right now where we'll expect the whole state to be green very soon. this means the state is also no longer requiring masking in jails and prisons, homeless shelters and emergency and cooling shelters in those low community level areas. people should definitely feel good. we haven't arrived here. by chance. we've done a lot of work to get to this point here in the bay area. bart's mask requirement is set to expire next weekend on october 1st writers that i spoke to today say that they think it should be the individual's responsibility to wear a mask not mandated, super excited for
12:09 pm
people to be able to make the decision for themselves, you know. having the freedom to protect yourself for breathe freely. i mean, it should be people's choice. i think some say it's common sense to know how to take care of yourself and when to mask up still, but they're ready to get back to normal. do you think you're still going to wear a mask? i will occasions and it seems appropriate. i always have one, but sometimes i will put it on a grounded people and, you know questionable situation. yeah but if not, i don't really think it's necessary in hong says don't throw away your masks. just yet things could change a specially in the winter. the bart board even approved a new resolution thursday night to say if the cdc states or counties they serve go back to masks. they will, too. but for now, many feel this is a much needed break. amanda quintana ktvu, fox two news. well, no doing. state
