double that in the next several years. >> along with increasing the fire staffing, the governor says there will be 13 new fire engines for firefighters. pg&e told a federal judge a wall street journal story about its power lines is wrong. the story said pg&e avoided we placing the power lines even though they knew it could cause wildfires. the paper said they put off safety work. pg&e says it looked into replacing 60 tours, and the one identified as the starting point of the camp fire was not on the list. and they are asking for a $1 billion rate hike to increase the average customer's bill by

yesterday travis was about nine or 10 miles per hour. gusts to 31. concord was calm. and a south wind gusting to 23. oakland hardly any breeze at all. 50s, 60s on the temps due to the low clouds, i doubt these change much. 51 bodega bay. and pen grove. 53. they were cooler yesterday. for august 1st, it's not that bad in the midwest. record lows in hibbing, minnesota, 37. sometimes the heat and humidity can knock your for a loop. 61 ukiah and sacramento. the monsoon which was active for about two days getting pushed off to the east. nothing for southern california or the sierra. that will probably change on the weekend.
