6:04 am
this public safety power shut up. the latest information pg&e is they have reduced the number of people that would be impacted by this across northern california but if it is a go, sonoma county would see the most outages in the bay area. you mention it already. 27,000 customers and that includes santa rosa and tense around the communities. pg&e closely monitoring the weather models and watching those weather conditions to make the determination. if they decide the wind is too strong and the weather poses a threat to the utilities, the rolling blackouts would begin at 2 pm in the sierra foothills. then here in sonoma county as well as napa county. 3 pm as the time the blackouts would happen. and for san mateo county, 1 am the thursday. they emphasize that shutting up power is the best way to prevent a fire during high wind events and they will work as closely as possible to restore power. >> we are looking to increase our ability to restore quickly

morning and so far pg&e's new outage alert website is working. it had major problems yesterday hours after promising things would be better this time. when customers heard about the possibility of another power shut off, they flooded the website to see if they would've be effective. that caused the website to slow down and in some cases it did not load at all. governor newsom says pg&e needs to do a lot better than that ? >> to the extent that they move forward they better address their website. the better address their call center. the better address their communication strategy. they better address the needs of local communities, particularly those most vulnerable. our seniors and elderly and others. and they better do it in a judicious and targeted way. >> the governor also says pg&e should update and maintain its equipment to minimize this kind of problem in the future. our coverage continues online at ktvu.com you will find more from the governor as well as
