9:05 pm
in the south bay. yeah, catherine and it's not as bad as it was yesterday at this time. we do have outages but not as many outages. go to the map and show you what we're talking about. all of these green dots represent a fewer than 50 customers without power. so not a lot, particularly in north bay. we have nap and petaluma. they're had some significant outages up there yesterday. not the case today, but look at the south bay. there is a concentration here, especially as we drive into a highway 101, and tully road. this area here. this is more than 5,000 customers without power. in fact, if you teach them to drive in all the way down, you can see just how many neighborhoods and and down individual lots don't have power right now. so that is the biggest hot spot in the bay area in terms of not having power. and then there's this widespread outage in morgan hill. look at this entire areas around anderson reservoir. now, this is not as densely populated, of course, is san jose, but it does cover a lot of territory here on the
9:06 pm
west side of 101. you're looking up by us river reservoir and all the way up toward mounted on a county park. so a big area in morgan hill and through san martine. overall, though, we're looking way better tonight. then we were last night and of course, we've got another hot one tomorrow. so this is not over yet. back to you guys in the studio. all right. thank you very much. can yesterday's record breaking heat did put record-breaking strain on the state's energy grid prompting an energy emergency alert 3 by cal iso. but a breakdown in communication has utility companies putting blame on kauai? so for outages in some bay area cities and except resulted in outages yesterday by local utilities and healdsburg palo alto alameda, all during peak energy demand. >> at that time, we notified utilities across our service territory to load in preparation for possible rotating outages.
9:07 pm
>> possible as it turned out. cal iso never did start ordering utilities to begin rolling blackout. however, some utilities did that anyway after a misunderstanding of the order, it was done over the phone, not on e-mail or on paper. the miscommunication did cause restrictions and some chaos for businesses in palo alto, which lost power for several hours yesterday. kron four's taylor. sacking explains. >> you know, mak room with misfits bake house is baking up a storm working overtime on wednesday after tuesday's power outage caused miss shipments and delays literally loaded up the oven and it was the bakers have been concerned. all the equipment, the type to go. bye-bye with that. you akron is the owner and baker at misfits big house in palo alto. he says the bakery lost power for several hours on tuesday, causing a major disruption to his business was nerve wracking. i

9:10 pm
the money awarded for each kilowatt hour saved will be used as a credit on your next electrical bill. >> it allows us to get them back to us as a program that allowed for the customers are earned. i think it's $2 for each kilowatt hour. so incentive for customers to say power and also to sanitize our customers to do that. >> if you're not a pga, new customer, cal iso has a similar rewards program in place for people who also can serve during flex alert hours to sign up for that. you can find links to those programs on kron 4 dot com. >> the search is on tonight for the person who shot and robbed a security guard. this morning. it happened at the kaiser campus in san leandro a brutal crime here. and so far all we know about the guard. it sees a 60 year-old man. he's right now in the hospital in critical condition. crowd force theresa has the latest on the investigation. >> just a lot going on.

9:18 pm
is fairly calm in and around the fire, but it is also extremely dry. humidity levels down into the 20% our region and probably gonna drop off into the teens by tomorrow. so bone-dry conditions up there. and of course, you've got the guess where that wind is blowing that smoke. it's blowing right toward lake tahoe where you can see here that smoke will travel along here from the fire. and there you go. they're looking at some very, very poor air quality in the lake tahoe area. so if you're planning to head up there, be aware you're likely to see a lot of that smoke from that fire move in that direction. and we continue to see a westerly wind back into the bay area. we go and you could see some hazy conditions all around. some of the yellow showing up out there. we've got high pressure now building in again overhead. surprisingly, we've got some good conditions in live more but not so good. hazy conditions in the half. moon bay, not tomorrow. i think that ridge strengthens and that is going to trap a lot of the plude right down the surface. again. and that means poor quality, the east bay and possibly the south, a

9:20 pm
criminally charge antioch police officers in the 2020 death of angelo quinto will not be the end of that matters. if the family is arguing that officer misconduct led to keep those staff. now at the family's request. >> the state attorney general has agreed to review the matter. kron four's dan kerman has the story. >> i was still with i was the mother of the late angelo quinto said contra costa county's district attorney. he's now part of a coverup since she chose not to prosecute antioch police officers for her son's death back in 2020, do not understand how to >> yeah, no cluess the we'd for all the police were called to the family home because kato was experiencing a mental health crisis. >> at issue, whether the restraint used by police cross the line and caused keep those death. >> obviously, something happened with these officers
