Look, we are anticipating a substantial increase in the hospital surge. People are not being turned away for care yet, but some areas are now activating their backup plans for the surge. And Newsome said cases in some regions may exceed what hospitals have planned for. Newsom said he's asked for more federal medical teams to assist and resource is for an additional field hospital.

Thank you. Since the pandemic began, the Trump Administration has set up a shadow immigration system on the U. S. Mexico border. Private contractors detain Children in hotels Before they're sent to their home countries. This allows immigration officials to bypass the normal process that would give the Children a chance to ask for asylum in the United States. NPR's Joel rose as the story of two people caught up in the system. It was late at night when Ricardo and Jorge arrived in a hotel parking lot, escorted by armed men in civilian clothes, way went in through the side door. No one was there. We didn't have to sign in or anything. We couldn't see the name of the hotel. Jorge is 16 and Ricardo is 13. They asked us not to use their last names because they're still in immigration proceedings. They're cousins who fled Honduras together after gang members threatened their family. They crossed the border illegally into Texas last month and turned themselves into the border patrol. After spending the night in detention. The boys say they were loaded into a van by the men who were not in uniforms. And they drove three hours to the hotel. Jorge says they were not allowed to leave their rooms for six days. They treated us badly at the hotel. They threatened us normally, when migrant Children travelling alone or apprehended. There are special protections that kick in to make sure they aren't sent back to dangerous situations. They're supposed to be detained and child appropriate shelters before being placed with a sponsor in the U. S while their asylum cases or heard But during the Corona virus pandemic that's not happening up and down the border, Court documents show. Many unaccompanied Children have been held secretly in hotels for days, sometimes weeks until they could be put on planes back to the countries. They came from. Immigration lawyers have figured out which hotel's leading to scenes like this one were detained. Give me your name. Texas Civil rights project posted this video on social media. Last month, he chose a lawyer confronting several unidentified men in the hallway of a hotel in McAllen, Texas, where the group believes migrant Children were being detained by police. Men shove the lawyer back into the elevator now. Private contractors working for U. S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement are detaining these young migrants in hotels in McAllen as well Asshole Paso, Phoenix and San Antonio. According to court papers. The company MGM Ink says its contract with ice prevents it from talking to the media. Ice says those contractors are trained to keep the miners safe and secure. Jorge and Ricardo say they were allowed to call their relatives. They were relieved when they reached Ricardo's father, who lives in Texas. They say they weren't allowed to tell him where they were.

Science reporter Daniel Benton tells US medical professionals are worried the air pollution will make battling covert 19 even harder. Early research during the Corona virus pandemic indicates that people breathing polluted air are both more likely to get covert 19 and to be sicker and die.

"We are making a big leap forward in terms of focusing attention on prevention we are not seeing the nation's first comprehensive early alert system for earthquakes we're now seeing the ability for millions and millions of Californians to download an app my check science reporter Daniel Benton joins us to explain this news system and Danielle how does it work so there is a network of sensors in the ground and they can detect shaking and computer models then predicts the area over which that shaking is going to be felt and that a warning can be sent out I spoke to Emory batei at the US Geological Survey she's one of the scientists working on the system and she stressed it's not able to predict quakes but after one starts the system can give one to two seconds if you're really close to the epicenter or up to say thirty seconds of warning if you're farther away the more distance from the source the more warning time and we can rapidly detect the earthquake and started and we rapidly and determine the location at the bank and then we take advantage of the fact that the information can travel much faster than the shaking waves travel so the idea then is to send an alert over the internet or radio or broadcast that information and she said can travel a lot faster than the seismic waves can and so this can give people just a little bit of warning before the shaking arrives to drop cover and hold on or say slow train that they're operating or take steps to make themselves a little safer and Danielle Japan and Mexico have had early warning systems for earthquakes for awhile now Howard their systems different than this one so their systems work a little differently because they deal with earthquakes and faults that are off shore and they have more time to spread the warning because that the epicenter is farther away this system is more advanced for the more delicate and complicated because we actually live it right on top of the faults that cause earthquakes in our area and Daniel you have looked back at Loma Prieta and I'm I'm wondering what science has learned from that earthquake that helps is going to help us prepare for the next one yeah the data that we got from the Loma Prieta earthquake was really valuable because it was the first big quake to hit the bay area since the nineteen oh six quake and it was a huge wake up call it really revealed where the bay area was vulnerable in particular areas built on in Phil or sand such as San Francisco's marina district or the bay bridge or the Cyprus street viaduct in the East Bay there were on the grounds that amplified the shaking and they were too much much more vulnerable to destruction so after that QuakeCon Congress put tens of millions of dollars insist into studying the quake and what seismologists learn then went into building codes and so buildings roads hospitals have been rebuilt or retro fitted to be much steadier these days up there still work to do of course but overall we're in much better shape now than we were in the late eighties okay thanks so much done now thank.

"Twenty two. It's morning edition on weedy. I'm Brian watt. It's been a big year for snow in the Sierra Nevada range records have fallen along with the snow. We've seen reports of fifty feet of snow or more on mammoth mountain in the central Sierra and in the resort town of mammoth lakes. Some people have literally had to tunnel out of their homes. This is the time of year when the snowpack is typically at its peak and tomorrow when surveyors do their monthly manual survey. They're likely to find the snow pack at about one hundred sixty percent of the average we've called up Ben had an atmospheric scientist at the western regional climate center in Reno and Ben in a word or two. How would you describe the snowfall this year, absolutely fantastic and not just for skiers? But also for anyone who uses water in California. All right. So the water supply loves it. But what is it about the storms that have come in this year that has created so much snow and so much water in the snow? Well, we've had very consistent Southall and the storms that have been bringing the snowfall have been somewhat colder than average. And so we've seen snow levels bringing snow down to one or two thousand feet quite frequently. We've even seen snow in the city itself, San Francisco, and the foothills there close to sea level, which is pretty novel and rare, and so we accumulated a lot of snow at the higher elevations at the middle of Asians and even down in the foothills, and we have a lot of water stored in our snowpack right now. All right. So do we ever reach a point where we have too much snow is definitely possible because we have a very nice state of our reservoir water levels right now or at about eighty percent full and running about one hundred and eleven percent of the historic average for the date, and we have a lot of snow stored in our natural snowpack reservoir. So if we have a warmer than average spring or has some very warm spring storms that accelerate the melting we might see some of that water coming down out of the nouns a little bit early, and that could create some challenges for the water management community because our reservoirs are so full right now and those in some of these communities that have been receiving heavy snowfall like Manasota springs and Myers people who've been tirelessly shoveling out of their homes or businesses we've seen overuse injuries from too much traveling. I think the chiropractors are going to be very busy this spring and summer. Oh my goodness. All right. Well, I'm sorry to hear that. Everyone shovel safely shovel safely. Yes. Stretch then hatchet of the western regional climate center in Reno. Thank you very much. Thank you very much for having me on a much more serious note. All the snow we've received this year has also meant a heavy year across the west for avalanches. Especially in the rocky mountains avalanches there have triggered evacuation orders in almost twenty five people have died. That's a lot of people. But it's pretty typical for a heavy snow year. Unfortunately, science editor Daniel Benton has been looking into the state of avalanche science. It's an old problem. But the full solution still eludes us she started with a call to the Sierra avalanche center. Good morning national fan with Alan's forecast for when if you're heading into the Lake Tahoe back country during winter and early spring. This year avalanche center is a good place to start the day. Bottom line, considered changeable exist all of Asians to win. Slab storm slab and loose. Wet avalanche problems. Human triggered avalanches likely with natural triggered avalanches possible. Recording forecast offer about five minutes of info on conditions and where it's riskiest. Everything's available online too. It's the product of lead forecaster Brandon Schwartz and his colleagues who start studying the snow wants the first ball of the season hits the ground, and we tracked snowfall we look at how those snow crystals change on the ground. And as they changed throughout winter each snowfall creates new layers in the snow pack a relatively weak layer of snow under a stronger one on a slope of thirty degrees or more dots. The recipe for an avalanche. Though, we're looking to see what it's gonna take.
