5:01 pm
the folks here in the north they were contacted by pg e yesterday saying the power could go off tonight but the weather conditions have changed to the point at least in the north bay in those 3 counties, sonoma and napa and lake where they are not going to shut off the power tonight, but that still could happen tomorrow night. at pg center is a service center extra trucks extra power poles and extra equipment fill the yard. >>in anticipation of the weather to come at this point though plans to shut off the power in sonoma and napa and lake counties monday night have been put on hold. >>so we're monitoring some adverse weather some high dry windy weather coming into the area. it is determined even other is a little bit of a fire is still there being a red flag warning day. it was not a heightened fire risk enough to warrant proactively shutting off the power not so lucky or 21,000 customers in the sierra foothills. >>they will see their power turned off monday night. but here in the bay area a power shut off watch remains in
5:02 pm
effect that means those 55,000 customers in the north bay could see their power shut off on tuesday night. >>takes to be safe and not have catastrophe like that in santa rosa's. >>i think worth it many who live or work in santa rosa are fine with that, especially after experiencing 27 teams tubbs fire. in fact for many, the main concern is not the power shut off. but the red flag warning that goes into effect monday night. >>when i hear the winds with bob because i remember the sounds last time and when the winds whipped up. i am sleeping on the couch instead of in the bedroom, i have all my clothes on and i'm watching what's happening that i really do. >>both cal fire and fire agencies in sonoma county. we'll have additional resources ready to go. >>they'll be additional resources available sonoma county. strike team which is 5 fire engines and a leader. an additional water tender initial dispatcher dispatch center this funding through
