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.

Thursday was the last fairly quiet weather day that we'll have in northern California as a series of storms will move our way through next week. Our first chance for rain and snow showers arrives Friday morning with a cold front.
