Drone shows Bay Area streets silenced by shelter-in-place
Judging by what DRONEVIEW7 captured over several Bay Area cities, residents are paying close attention to California's shelter-in-place order. Normally busy streets are empty, an extraordinary sight during extraordinary times.

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Commuters typically get up early to jockey for a coveted parking spot at the Orinda BART station in Contra Costa County. On Wednesday, because of the COVID-19 crisis, there were hundreds of empty stalls to choose from.

All of BART's parking lots sit mostly vacant as Californians shelter-in-place to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
