differently. >> reporter: this weekend shut off could impact as many as 850,000 pg&e customers spanning three dozen counties. becoming the largest and potentially the longest shut off since the outages began. we are preparing for what is likely going to be a widespread safety shut off across our service territory. to combat the risk of a catastrophic wildfire. >> reporter: nearly 1 million of pg&e's 5 million customers are expected to lose power starting tomorrow. but pg&e officials say they have learned from this week's outage after admitting they only shut off low voltage lines and not high-voltage transmission lines prior to the kincaid fire. because the winds were not strong enough. we adjusted some of our protocols determining when we will be energized high-voltage transmission lines.
>> reporter: they will shut off power to high-voltage power lines and areas the sea higher winds and forecasted. because of topography. a transmission line at one of pg&e's power failed minutes before the kincaid fire began. last night pg&e did not have an answer as to why it took pg&e crews 10 hours to inspect the faulty line. i don't know the answer to that.>> reporter: today they had the answer. do you have a clearer picture today on why pg&e crews didn't patrol the area of the failed transmission line until the next morning after being made aware of it the night before? we do dispatch work as to the site. they were there within 90 minutes. at that time the fire was already ongoing. our people could not get to the structure. >> reporter: the outages might be widespread so is the anger and frustration among customers. today officials confirmed some are having their power shut off who don't necessarily need to. one of the things we are committed to do. as soon as we get through fire season. we can sit back and think about
what additional we need to put in. how we might be able to reconfigure the system areas that will not the don't typically see the bad weather but somehow are connected through the system to it will not be impacted. crews say they will decide tomorrow at 8 am after looking at the forecast who in fact will lose power. live in the east san jose foothills. lights are on for now. this is expected to be one of the hardest hit areas as the region prepares for yet another massive power blackout tomorrow. there are a few places where power lines intersect with dry brown brush more than the east so san jose foothills. here residents live with the threat of fire it year-round. but blackouts are a new twist. last time we had the power outage at around 6 am.

[audience cheering] - [announcer] you don't need any previous real estate experience or your own money to invest to profit in real estate the yancey way. scott yancey's free lunch and dinner events bring you all the live local training you need to succeed in real estate. at the event, you'll discover all kinds of ways to find deeply discounted properties like these in your area, properties you can get for a fraction of their value and flip for amazing profits. deals so good that scott's money partners will put up the money for you, up to one million dollars per flip, so you don't have to use your own cash or credit. it's simple. you find the properties to flip. they put up the money, and you each get a piece of the profits. any one, any age, from any walk of life can do this. - this isn't a theory. this isn't something we're trying. this is something that works,
and we're doing it right now all over the country. - i actually phoned the hotel to see if this was for real. [woman chuckles] they said, "well, yeah, it is." - scott's just made it super easy to expand into real estate because everything that you need is right here. - so what did you think of the event? - i think it's awesome. i mean, it's making me like "yes, i have to make that deal, that first deal." - absolutely - gotta do it now. - [announcer] the yancey way to make money in real estate is so effective it's grabbed headlines everywhere. the a&e network even created a hit tv series about scott called "flipping vegas." now, scott and his team are going to show you how to start flipping in your area through the free lunch and dinner events he's bringing right here to the local area. you're invited. - from what i've learned today, and the prices that he introduced to me, my lifestyle's gonna change. - [announcer] now, here to give you the inside scoop on making money the yancey way is emmy-nominated abc tv personality and popular host of hgtv's "design to sell,"
rachel reenstra. - you know, as a long-time hgtv host, i've seen people make a lot of money flipping houses, but, i've gotta tell you. in real estate like the yancey way. because it requires no previous real estate experience or money to invest, anyone can do it. in fact, scott has received literally thousands of success story videos from people who have changed their lives with what they've learned at one of his free events. check these videos out. - hi, scott! i wanted to thank you so much for everything you've done for me. i just wanted to send you a quick video and tell you that, before i went do your free event, i just filed bankruptcy. i was sitting on the couch feeling really sorry for myself, so, after i attended your event and learned how to invest in real estate without using any of my own money or credit, i was so excited to get started.
here i am now at age 70 years old. i've flipped over 20 properties, and i just can't tell you how excited i am to have gone to that free event. so thank you so much. - hi, scott. this is thom gilbert, and i attended one of your events because my dad has worked his whole life in manual labor, working hard. i was heading down that same path, realizing that it's not the path i wanted to go down. there had to be a better way. your courses, your training, and your education has allowed me to do 15 deals since starting with you. it's allowed me to change the path that my dad was on, help him retire, set up my children for future success and real estate investing, and change my own destiny. so thank you. - to learn more about how the yancey way to profit in real estate really works, i went to las vegas to meet scott yancey. now, scott has clearly come a long way from being a $5-an-hour errand runner, but i was just so impressed with how down-to-earth he still is
and how much passion he has for helping others learn to use real estate to transform their own lives. so what do you think keeps other people from making money in real estate? - i absolutely know what it is. it's two things, knowledge and money. - what do you mean? - well, you can have all the money in the world, but, if you don't know what you're doing, you're not gonna have success. if you have the knowledge of how to invest in real estate but you don't have the money, you're not even in the game. - okay, so you're saying that you need both? - exactly! that's what we give people at my events. i can teach anyone to do what i do everyday, so knowledge isn't an issue. my money partners put up the money, so my students don't have to use their own. - our viewers don't have to have their own money to invest or qualify for a loan or anything like that? - no, i already have the money in place. they just need to come to my free event. - okay, scott, people watching this are probably thinking, "what's the catch?" - definitely. - you know, i mean, how much of the profits are your money partners keeping?
