and pg and e believes the vandals used wire cutters to break into this chain link fence behind me, at the back of the substation to get into this yard. many are wondering how they went undetected in the first place. investigators spent the day collecting evidence, and retracing steps for any clues as to how thieves cut out three large holes in a fence of the pg and e met calf substation. >> preliminary information in our investigation. one of the fence alarms did go off. was that properly followed up on? >> reporter: thieves broke in near the power grid. the thieves got away. the sheriff's department call out more than five hours later. last april, a sniper shot at 17 transforms, and vandals cut

the huge swells were generated by hurricane marie which has been downgraded to a tropical storm hundreds of miles out in the pacific. that swell is really not getting here, because the hurricane, as you look behind me is south. it is now a tropical storm, but it's in a position where when it was down here as a hurricane, and this line, it was generating, you know 130, 140 mile-an-hour winds that in turn generated very large swell. what's happening here in san diego, and southern california, is these areas that are facing south, i'll come a little close bier the wedge, or newport beach. see this nook here? that's kind of a seal beach area here. this is facing south, right? so the swell is coming directly, hitting it. then newport wedge is right here. places like this right here, this swell is going to go right by it. this area is getting blocked by
