CHICO, Calif. - As part of its new public safety power shut off program, PG&E is adding more precautionary measures to reduce wildfires. If extreme fire conditions threaten an electricity system, your power could be turned off.

The county recommends keeping a supply kit with bottled water, non-perishable foods, extra batteries to charge up devices, and any important medication.

It's been another hot and smoky day for the valley of northern California, with showers and thunderstorms once again popping up over our mountains. It will quiet down tonight with more hot, active weather tomorrow.
