6:05 am
i've had throughout this power shut off. obviously yes, we are very worried about people who do not have power in there holmes. but when it comes to people on the road, especially people who are familiar with driving in an area they may not know that a traffic light is there or available and so they may just speed or power right threat not understanding that it originally was supposed to be on and to be functioning so if you do come up to a street light, it doesn't have power treated as a normal stoplight you'll to the person on the right there, here's specifically in santa rosa as i mentioned just about every other a street light every other block either has power doesn't specifically i'm here live in front of this walgreens off of mission boulevard and sonoma a highway as i mentioned now it's actually using generator to go ahead and say on a broad power back yesterday so customers can come here and get resources. but just on the other side of mission boulevard is the shopping shopping center shopping structure there on the side. it is completely dark completely blocked on the other side of sonoma highway
6:06 am
we've got apartment complex and had apartment complex and does have power the other side of that another apartment complex that doesn't have power. so lies about 5050 a lot of off and on up here in santa rosa, but i also want to share with you guys some thought that people have had as they were getting ready to kind of backed away area prepared there's out themselves where the power shut off we talk to them about their preparations go ahead and take a listen. >>lot of patience and a lot of anger. it's look this been off. >>i also want to let everyone know about school closures as well as schools that are now back open here in the unified school district just want to go ahead and tell everyone here in santa rosa we have hidden valley elementary school, their school will be closed today and today is friday again hidden valley elementary school, no school today on friday, however all
6:07 am
other schools here in the unified school district in santa rosa, we'll go back to their normal schedule. they have regained power they did yesterday. >>so even though knows may have been off the past 2 days they now have full day unless you're valley elementary school. but just as a reminder to everyone when you're on the road safe you're dealing with this power. i did please be patient with one other one another and please be very careful on the roads reporting live here in santa rosa christina tetreault kron 4 news. thank you christina. >>quick update the peninsula. there was a fire that broke out in brisbane in the area where power actually was not shut off. the fire came dangerously close to pg power lines evacuations were voluntary, none of them ever became mandatory and luckily, the fire is out now so there's no more worry that cal fire is now looking into sea. what the ca,se was. >>in the east bay, the wildfire in march rhonda is out and power is back to customers their 5th 50 acre fire broke out in the hills behind sanders ranch road in iraq and we covered it all yesterday here on the show just 2 hours before the fire
6:08 am
started pg e cut power to that area because of the risk of their equipment starting a fire so we know that didn't do it, but they still don't know the cause of this fire. one fire engine in the area is there right now still this morning just watch out for hot spots. >>would move report, it's good news that marotta has the power back on nearby lafayette, most areas have power so but they're still pockets in the dark this morning, you got your power back i did >>that's a toughie when you have power than your neighbors across the street downtown. >>i feel bad for those who lost their power i founately never lost power so let's keep going pg e i live in pleasanton off the hop yard so keep it up as far as lafayette, there are many pla places with out power. let me quickly pull up the video for you to show you the head abs
6:09 am
and o. i am curve early and delores drive and you can see the apartment complexes that windows are jarred the parking lot is stark. they don't have power. but this reminds be james and darya just like more august morocco yesterday when the fires broke out some parts did have power but most did not and that's exactly the situation this morning in lafayette there are downtown spots, mostly supermarket chains. there are nationwide. they have power. i think that they have generators going but most of downtown lafayette is still dark at this time and i have a pg the map to prove it to use money quickly pull up that map for comes in basically to color codes. the orange and then the yellow the orange, mostly impacts lafayette, so you could see lafayette is covered by pg e as far as their power outage. the good news is they said that they will spend today and the days ahead looking at
6:10 am
their power lines and try to restorweto lafayette, another 34 counties that were hit in california because of the rolling blackouts they hope to have power back as soon as they possibly can still no rhyme or reason why one side of the street has power and the other especially when they're talking about trying to prevent wildfires altogether but they told before on certain runs on a grid, so james might be on a certain grid and duryea u might be on a certain grade and you could buy look at each other as you're drinking coffee, unfortunately, james might be in the dark and you're all smiles with bright tpr stereo >>thank you very will pay off or die offer to do your laundry until >>lucky that came back everything went take the amassed that san jose. there this morning. they get the power back yesterday at for the afternoon and neighborhoods in east, san
6:11 am
jose happy about that. but you know pgd acknowledge that it's been a rough go. >>that had some trouble they they definitely could improve on communication. >>they said, and one customers san jose gave her feedback. >>i do think the communicated well we were well informed that the power will be going out. so it just be nice if they resolve these issues a loss to net, so you wouldn't be without power for so long. >>mayor sam liccardo says the planned shutdown cost the city of san jose about. >>we have more than 300,000 customers are still in the dark when you add it all up and 34 counties impacted by this out have been cleared for restoration but again crews are going to have to do to use daylight hours and get their helicopters up to visually inspect all the power lines before they can really energize those lines and p says it could take several days. we did hear from the utility company c e o he actually came before the media bill johnson is a name and he says the utility yes cut
6:12 am
power. in the interest of public safety because of the fire threat but he says you're correct pg e was not properly prepared. >>several times are maps are inconsistent. that's incorrect.,put simply we were not adequately prepared to support the operational event. and this will improve. >>so your gripes have been heard they went all the way up the chain to the ceo of pg e who came out and to make that public statement now in order to determine which areas are safe to turn the power back on as i said p has to do these patrols inspect the lines only during daylight hours, so they're not doing it right now, but you expect those crews to be out there at first light. governor gavin newsom by the way slammed utility company saying these blackouts were the result of decades of pg e's mismanagement greed and the collect. what has occurred and the last 48 hours is
6:13 am
unacceptable. what occurred in last 48 hours is kids stay home from school. parents can't pay their kids. folks that come home from work. you can even find a way to get into their garage. you've got people that can't even access water or medical. supplies. we're seeing the scale and scope of something that no state. 21th century should experience. what happened. it's unacceptable. and it's happened because of neglect. newsom also called on california utility regulators to review pg e's actions. now the california public utilities commission says that they review all intentional outages by utility company. so we'll see what their report turns up. bring breaking news out of southern california because the winds that forced peach you need to shut off power here at now moved to southern california and look has what has erupted. a major

6:18 am
>>south with these individual spot. really good to hear
6:19 am
perspective what's going on because we see the glow of the fire but we're not necessarily show a lack of that. rice is dark, but so when you see the little spot fires. those are homes that are on fire, we know several the story and more of the chain in the mountains maine right and that's just brush that's burning and that's the worry with the santa ana winds and was we had yesterday of course here is that these embers coming off the main fire. >>blow in the direction of wind and a drop into these neighborhoods and start the spot fires in there battling exactly in these are warm winds too so they keep those embers burning for quite some time as thesh dowinto these valleys
6:20 am
>>you could be a pretty good distance away from where you actually see the fire burning and start to get the spot, popping up around they're getting gusty wind today that we have got rid of yesterday s actually a very similar system guys except their winds are a bit more widespread than i czars were yesterday. we certainly saw some impressive peak wind gusts in the some isolated upper elevations in the bay yesterday but down in the la area this morning. they're saying those same wind gusts, a across a wide region and that is the biggest threat right there. this is very strong winds across southern california paired with some low humidity you see fire danger is very high. reverse it and take it back up here to the bay we're not looking at any sort of yellow or red on the map indicating extreme fire danger certainly we're still going to keep an eye on conditions for the weekend but are extreme fire danger has diminished along with those winds. still red flag warnings up in lake and colusa counties done for the rest of the day, although southern california is lit up in solid red across la down to san diego up into
6:21 am
the kern county mountains around the grapevine and up into the southern sierra nevada as well our winds here in the bay are quite calm compared to 60 mile per hour gusts in southern california. we're looking at gust topping out at maybe 12 miles per hour today. and that's just for a few short minutes, so winds are really started to calm down with high pressure still in place we're going to stay dry fog free. that's good news as we see those ships making their way through the golden gate for fleet week today. so we are going to see some good weather for getting out for fleet week very comfortable in san francisco in the 70's for your highs with 70's out along the coastline on the peninsula and then 80's for much of the rest of the bay burlingame southward on the peninsula, looking at low 80's palo alto not quite there to 79 but very close santa clara and san jose as well as down to morgan hill, each 82 for your highs east bay temperatures a range of 70's and 80's today, just as you will also see further north in the bay area with low
6:22 am
80's up in the north bay. these numbers they're warmer than yesterday, but it's those calmer winds that have really made this forecast so much better into the weekend. tomorrow, not a lot of changes temperature still the same next week on average a lot cooler robin. >>all right. thank you john off to the san mateo bridge we're checking in on westbound 92. right that was already pushed off to the shoulder. but the backup spilled over to the flat section so this is all merging together now as we look at the flat section leaving hayward it is at a crawl it's already backed up beyond the toll plaza, so much heavier because of that minor accident, we'll put it at 29 minutes to make your way over to the peninsula for checking the bay bridge traffic it's busy but it's not bad. no problems here just slowing in the cash lanes and the fast track lanes so it's spilling back all. >>almost almost. >>to the bottom of the maze for that's pretty typical for this time of morning at least it's quiet. we're checking in on the nimitz an accident to the south at to kowtow still working and still backing up
6:23 am

6:32 am
were so afraid of seeing here in the bay area and people were fearful of that when we have that fire morocco yesterday fortunately crews were able to get that under control right away, but winds down there in southern california, biggest enemy of the situation because they are widespread in the 60 mile per hour range for those peak wind gust that's not just at those mountain tops either so much of the la area as you wouldn't be surprised is lit up in red flag warnings this morning very different situ us here in northern california this morning as you can see looking at the very corner that map we only have one red flag warning left and it's traveling. caloosa and lake counties just north of the core of the bay area so will our situation calms down it is still very much so an extreme situation as far as fire danger goes for southern neighbors down in the los angeles area. calm winds across the bay area this morning want to change one day makes we're going to be looking at calm winds into the afternoon too great news for
6:33 am
fleet week today with daytime highs in the 70's for san francisco, 80's for much of the rest of the bay, more your forecast is still to come. >>robin i'm tracking much heavier than normal traffic on the san mateo bridge. earlier i talked about a minor crash which is out of the way but look you lose have traffic all stacked up so it's westbound it's at the high rise it on the shoulder that was the last update from chp but there's a long a traffic behind it, everybody has to slow down and be a little nosy and that equals this major delays here from hayward heading over to the financial you are backed up on the flat section through the toll plaza into hayward at a whopping 40 minutes to make your way from the nimitz through the slow traffic and off to one on one normally it's about 2530 minutes but because of this crash in his 40 saw let you know when it's out of your way we're checking in on san jose because we have a new crash north one oh one near the old oakland road exit. it's blocking one lane but pretty busy out of south san jose sauls zoom out you can see the whole stretch 46
6:34 am
minutes and growing because of this new crock cash to make it from san jose to menlo park will check in on some more slow spots coming up darya james thanks a lot 06:33am and our team coverage continues of. around age is still in the dark others said the blackout has been lifted by pg neither slowly get slowly in every community seems to be dealing with lafayette is dealing with for instance, we've got a good section of the city's. >>back on but still pockets of people struggling with the a power blackout that has been restored crawford's will trend. >>out there live for us this morning with a firsthand look well. >>absolutely and people are still struggling it's the haves and have nots you can see some of the lights behind me let me get you video. so you can see what is going on so there are some apartments in lafayette that are waking up without any power you can see the windows are jarred they don't have it and probably didn't have it for close to most of a day because of the rolling blackouts and
6:35 am
we don't know exactly whthe power will come back on because there are other parts of lafayette and downtown some lights are on and it depends on. i would imagine how big your financial pocket is because some of the big grocery stories they have partial power to keep some of their food. frozen at this particular time but the montage shops in the smaller shops, they are dark at this time. many intersections don't have lights. let me quickly pull up a map for you so you can know exactly what you're facing in lafayette so basically comes into jones orange and yellow the orange pretty much in compass is most of lafayette. those are the areas without power and then the orange those are parts that are slowly trying to get their power back. the bottom line is pg e is trying to make sure or that the power is on and all all areas of the map so they want to work as quickly as they possibly can and as safe as they possibly can do it and so they're going
6:36 am
to go through their check their allies to see if there's any damage and if there's any damage they will make for the repairs. then they'll re energize the line. the hope is they have all all power back to the 34 counties there were wiped out from time to time because the rolling blackouts but it's going to be this james and ari it occurred to me doing these stories of the past couple of days. is is the new norm, so you might hopefully this is round one of one. but when surprise anybody right if this is just round one of many other routes to come because we are indeed in fire season and los angeles, those 4 people down there. they definitely can attest to that back to you. >>all right, thank you very much well, and as power comes back on on to cities across marin and sonoma counties, some people in sausalito are happy but then others are upset about the power outage in the first place kron four's dan thorn has more from there. >>power makes a return to areas across moraine county
6:37 am
the city of sausalito so one portion virtually unscathed by pg planned power outages. but another part took a hit we have to throw we only lost inventory. >>it's it's it's a my reaction. >>darnya's restaurant was one of several forced to close because of the power outage. hours without refrigeration cost owner says on far hand more than $5,000 in meats cheeses doe and other ingredients far hand believes her business should be reimbursed by pg n a. >>big big company of the have to be with >>mostly unaffected businesses downtown saw people walking into their shops and eating at their restaurants if the power outage hit them. they too would have faced painful costs. >>camera so i the only unhappy that he had >>as for some of the more than 3,000 residents affected in

6:39 am
down, but be careful on the major tyoroughfares as you're going through this entire area because we've got a lot of street lights that are out some of the major ones are back on but pretty much again it's every others to be very careful, especially with the high speeds in that area. you know a lot of people have really been preparing for this power shut off a lot of people without power throughout the past few days, here's a listen to what they had to say. lot of patience and a lot of anger. >>now kind of like a ghost town, it's looking at this as has been off. >>i didn't want to share this a sonoma county how about 200,000 residents that were affected by this again pg is working to restore the power. as quickly as they can in this area they say, but again about half of the people have the power half don't it is still unclear of when the other half will get their power when it will be on. but when it comes to schools, there's now only one a school. here in the unified school district in
