SACRAMENTO, Calif. - There is now more financial protection for California victim’s wildfires.


Gov. Brown Tuesday signed into law a bill to strengthen consumer protections for homeowners after wildfires.


The State Insurance Commissioner says AB 1797 requires insurance companies to provide homeowners with updated replacement cost-estimates for their homes every other year or take inflation costs into consideration to calculate that figure.

It's a warmer and windier day for our area in the wake of the storm from this weekend. A Red Flag Warning continues for the valley through 8pm and for the Sierra through late Tuesday morning, with hotter weather returning.
