Possible PSPS Thursday

PG&E says is has now restored power to almost all customers who were affected by the most recent public safety power shut offs. But, because of strong winds expected to hit our area tomorrow, the utility warns thousands of customers in the Bay Area that they could lose power again. This time, the power for 30,000 customers in 20 California counties including Napa, Contra Costa, Solano and Sonoma, could be turned off tomorrow. (photo courtesy Napa Valley Register)


Wildfire Insurance

Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara proposed a comprehensive solution for commercial insurance coverage after several destructive wildfire seasons. Commissioner Lara’s solution involves strengthening the FAIR Plan, California’s insurance safety net, while aggressively reducing wildfire risk through a combination of insurance incentives and mitigation. It would benefit farmowners, wineries, and other outdoor businesses (photo courtesy US News Travel)


Police Department Grants

Two large financial grants have been given to The Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety and Santa Rosa Police Department to help pay for traffic safety programs. The money from the California Office of Traffic Safety will be used for programs like DUI checkpoints, enforcement of distracted driving, bicycle and pedestrian safety,and more.

Possible Power Outages

PG&E says it may shut off power to about 44,000 customers in California beginning today, due to dry, gusty winds that could raise the risk of wildfires. 8,000 of those possible shut offs could take place in Sonoma, Lake and Napa Counties. PG&E says the high winds, combined with dry vegetation caused by the drought, could increase the risk of trees falling on power lines and sparking a wildfire. (photo courtesy WPMI)


Energy Circuit Disclosure

Under a new law signed by Governor Newsom last month, utilities are now required to disclose which energy circuits may be most likely to experience public safety power shut offs. The goal of that new law is to make sure the same customers aren't having their power turned off over and over again. Governor Newsom signed the bill as part of a $1.5 billion climate package focused on clean energy, drought, and wildfire preparedness (photo courtesy Dissolve)


Columbus Day

Today is the Federal holiday dedicated to Christopher Columbus. Though on Friday, President Biden issued the first presidential proclamation of Indigenous Peoples' Day. But, activists said efforts to end a formal holiday in Columbus' name remain stalled by politicians and organizations focusing on Italian American heritage.


Halloween Considered Safe

With Halloween three weeks away, Dr Anthony Fauci says families can feel safe trick-or-treating outdoors this year as COVID-19 cases in the U.S. decline, especially for those who are vaccinated. Dr. Fauci says it's an important time of year for children, so ``go out there'' and ``enjoy it.'' (photo courtesy Indy's Child)
