6:31 pm
thermostat to 78 degrees or higher if your health allows. don't charge her electric car or use major appliances during those critical hours. turn off any unnecessary lights. all of that, small steps that do make a big difference. though the extreme strain on the power grid, we are seeing the process may be new this year. the race to make energy supply a demand has been going for decades. ama: zach fuentes spoke to an expert who weighs in on what has changed and how long we can continue to see outages. >> the year 2000 when rolling blackouts first hit the bay area. in two thousand one, they spread to the entire state. san jose state shirt -- san jose state lecturer feels california has done as much as possible to take care of the electric grid. >> whether it is cold, hot, they are suffering because there are issues with the grid. we don't have the same issues here. we are aware of the problem.
6:32 pm
>> stage three emergency alerts mean rolling blackouts are happening or a minute. california reached that level in 2000. 38 times in 2001. the next time we saw the same kind of alert was twice in 2020. over the last two decades, california has led the country in integrating solar and wind to supply the grid. at times, when the cleaner sources are not producing enough and demand is high, battery sources are used, or as a last resort, sources that use fossil fuels. steps have been taken in the last 20 years to fill in the gaps during higher demand periods. the power plant behind me started operating in 2003 to fill gaps when demand was at the highest. it has evolved to run via natural gas and other sources. not the only one of its kind, but strain on the energy grid continues to be a problem. a major part of the issue is climate change. >> for example, talk about some of the hydraulic powers that use water to generate power, it is
6:33 pm
dry because of the dry weather. >> as the impacts of climate change continue, will this rain we have seen on the power grid and potential rolling blackouts be something we live with annually? it depends on several factors. >> the solution has multiple parties that have to take action before they can say we will face something like this. better resources for the grid so it can keep pumping power to us, better practices by us, and dealing with climate change as a reality. >> zach fuentes abc7, news. >> bart stop service between pleasant hill and concord because of an equipment problem on the track. buses are providing service between those. they experienced systemwide delays because of that. it was 102 degrees at the fremont station. trains are about 20 minutes behind schedule. bart slows down trains when the tracks get too hot. they can warp as a result of the heat. it is because of a derailment in
6:34 pm
june because of high heat. caltrain slowed down trains because of the hot weather. it was running a level two alert across nearly the entire system between san francisco and the station in san jose. instead of traveling at the usual 79 miles per hour, trains were moving at about 50 miles per hour. ama: the extreme heat can be dangerous to our health. today on abc7's getting answers program, some at-home tips to prevent heat related illnesses. >> what people can do, essentially replicate the hospital with a spray mist. what people might be used to sprain plants with -- spraying plants with, and a fan to blow it around. also cooling fax, particularly under the arms, on the parts of the body, can be helpful. >> checked the temperatures, get forecasts, and learn more about the bay whether area -- bay area

i've never had a contract. >> directv reviewed her claim and sent her another notice, saying it considered her $923 balance to be accurate. please remit the balance due in the amount of $923.06 to the following address to avoid further collection action. the letter claimed she was never current, no payments from april through september 2021. directv also charged her and early termination fee, along with a nonreturn fee. sharon felt like she was running out of options. >> we didn't know what to do anymore. every month i get these letters with more added interest than i/o on this. >> then she reached out to 7 on your side and the situation began to turn for the better. >> excuse me, got a tiger by the teeth. >> she said within two hours after 7 on your side reached out, the company promised to
6:37 pm
look into it further. directv told us we worked to quickly investigate their claim and determine the account was opened by fraudsters. all collection efforts have ceased, and fraudulent account has been closed. >> thanks to you guys. otherwise it was like we were beating on a wall. >> that is why we are here. glad we can help. send me your stories about your biggest money management challenges. go to on your side, and you might be featured on an upcoming newscast. when i think about financial management, i get nervous. dan: absolutely. you are so knowledgeable. ama: the as for prop 26 and 27 setting campaign-finance records. records. we give you a neutral what's the difference between prop 26 and prop 27? 26? not one dime to get people off the streets and into housing 27 generates hundreds of million
6:38 pm
to help solve homelessness. the choice is clear yes on prop 27. this is john. he hasn't worked this hard to only get this far with his cholesterol. taken with a statin, leqvio can lower bad cholesterol and keep it low with two doses a year. side effects were injection site reaction, joint pain, urinary tract infection, diarrhea, chest cold, pain in legs or arms, and shortness of breath. with leqvio, lowering cholesterol becomes just one more thing life throws your way.
6:39 pm
ask your doctor about leqvio. lower. longer. leqvio. (fisher investments) it's easy to think that all money managers are pretty much the same, lower. longer. but at fisher investments we're clearly different. (other money manager) different how? you sell high commission investment products, right? (fisher investments) nope. fisher avoids them. (other money manager) well, you must earn commissions on trades. (fisher investments) never at fisher investments. (other money manager) ok, then you probably sneak in some hidden and layered fees. (fisher investments) no. we structure our fees so we do better
6:40 pm
when clients do better. that might be why most of our clients come from other money managers. at fisher investments, we're clearly different. you go by lots of titles. veteran, dad, hair stylist. so adding a student title might feel daunting. national university is here to support all your titles. national university. supporting the whole you. what's the difference between prop 26 and prop 27? 26 is a money grab that doesn't guarantee a cent for non-gaming tribes. 27 requires 15% of all state revenues go to non-gaming tribes. the choice is clear. yes, on 27. ama: the next election is two
6:41 pm
months away, but we are being inundated with ads. they focus on two propositions, 26 and 27, both about sports gambling. liz kreutz explains what your vote means. >> by now, you have likely heard about efforts to legalize sports betting in california. >> vote yes on prop 27. >> joined more than 50 gaming and non-gaming tribes through california. >> those ads are airing all across the state for and against the propositions. frankly, it is a little confusing. let's break it down. what is sports betting? a form of gambling where someone can wager cash on a sporting event. sports betting, except horseracing, is not legal in california. they used to be a nationwide ban. but the 2018 supreme court ruling overturned that, and more than half of the states in the country, including new york, new jersey, arizona, legalized some form of sports betting.
6:42 pm
it is up to california to decide what to do here. that brings us to the november election. on the ballot, two initiatives. prop 26 and prop 27. both with legalized sports betting, one or both could pass, and a lot of money at stake with all of it. let's start with prop 26. funded by native american tribes, and would allow sports betting to happen in person at tribal casinos and horseracing tracks across the state. it would allow casinos to prevent craps and other dice games. you have to be 21 years old to place a bet, and no betting on high school or college games. the same age and game restrictions apply to prop 27. the difference is prop 27 would allow online sports betting, meaning you could place wagers on your phone from your couch. the way it works is big out-of-state gaming companies like fan tool and draft kings
6:43 pm
could partner with native american tribes to offer online, even mobile sports gambling. the cost to do so is really big. it will cost a tribe $10 million for the initial sports betting license. that is why many, but not all, native american tribes are against it. they say it will prevent smaller operators from breaking in. also concerns about how the gaming companies would regulate underage use. supporters of prop 27, which include the gaming companies, and major league baseball, can benefit small rural tribes that don't have much foot traffic. they say it would generate hundreds of millions of dollars in tax revenue for the state. money that will almost be entirely allocated to addressing homelessness and mental health issues. that is why homeless groups support it, and why you see a lot of ads that talk less about sports betting and more about solving the homelessness crisis. >> prop 27 generates hundreds of millions every year to
6:44 pm
permanently fund getting people off of the streets and into housing. prop 26, not a dime to solve homelessness. >> prop 26 would also generate a lot. but not quite as much money for the state. that money would go to the general fund. supporters argue sports betting is already happening. legal or not. so the state might as well bring it above board and benefit. they also say prop 26 can help struggling native american tribes. many against it really oppose sports betting. they say issues around compulsive gambling and financial impact on families. the california republican party has come out against prop 26 and prop 27. the california democratic party has come out against prop 27 and is neutral on prop 26. that has not stopped the backers of these props from spending more than $350 million to pass these initiatives. a campaign-finance spending record. the other question, what happens if they both pass?
