The city of Portland declared a state of emergency. As fires bore down on surrounding suburbs Cruise around the state have been navigating exceedingly difficult conditions. Unpredictable weather patterns change fire lines by the minute. State officials estimate they need twice as many firefighters on the ground as they have now. Oh my God. At the same time, there are fears some residents are not heeding evacuation orders, spurred in part by conspiracy theories and misinformation circulating online. Local police departments had to squash rumors. Fires were caused by arsonists on both the far left and for right. Meanwhile, in California, the North complex fire, which exploded in size earlier this week, has become the state's deadliest of the year.

"The bare fire in Butte County with reporter Mike Baka. Actually, they also are calling it the North complex West zone. Authorities air calling that but whatever you call it, it has been deadly. It has been a destructive Here's Mike. Yeah, well, what they're telling us now. 70,000 Acres 2000 structures destroyed. And, of course, the three deaths that were reported yesterday and Kitty, it really moved fast. In a westerly direction late Tuesday afternoon. Those those winds really pushed it from Plumas County Interview County and, of course, a lot of dry fuel when it made it dangerous. My quote of the firefighters been telling you that there's an unpredictability to it, which is kind of common for fires up here. And of course, we're very familiar, of course less than two years ago, the campfire Um, within about a 90 minute period yesterday, they were saying that it's moving in a northerly direction. Then they were saying northwesterly direction. Then they saw it shifted south, and that's Kind of commonplace right now they're saying it's moving. Suddenly ah little bit. They're still doing a lot of structure protection in the forest town area, Brush Creek, Feather Falls and the Lumpkin Ridge area. We know the firefighters are doing their job, but one can only suspect it's taking a toll. What's interesting is it's very dangerous to compare things to the campfire. But chief Gaddy yesterday that I never thought in my lifetime. I was something that would be similar in scope and how it moved. Like the campfire, and that's what they were telling me yesterday and they have been helped out by the weather. Today. They're very happy with what happened with the weather, lower temperatures and certainly helped. The winds are not gusting, but They thea unpredictability of it. Initially late Tuesday afternoon into the wee hours Wednesday morning, that's what really had them on edge. Yeah. Well, finally, I understand that we are getting help here in California from firefighters around the country and even the world Israel maybe Australia. Yes, and Chief Daddy again telling me the Suppression efforts, and the resource is have nearly doubled in the last 24 to 36 hours, which is great, which means the other fires around the state are not as bad and those resource is air now being shifted to this fire. Another interesting tidbit regarding this fire is the way they are mapping it. They're using Lake Oroville as a firebreak. So they are able now to put resource is in other places to protect structures. And if they have to, They're going to let that fire burn all the way down to the eastern portion. Eastern side. I should say of Lake Oroville and then protect structures and other areas. So it's weird to say this, but the topography which has always worked against Firefighters in Butte County. At times it's kind of helping them because of how big Lake Oroville is interesting. Well, Mike Baka, thank you so much for this report. Sure.

"Many people are itching to get outside and socialize especially as the weather gets warmer around the country but there's a fight to contain the virus corona virus still very much in full force and parts of southern California for instance the number of infections and deaths are relatively flat but as people gather health officials are saying new hot spots and spikes in the number of cases for more on California's efforts to contain the virus we have doctor George Rutherford via Skype he's an epidemiologist at the university of California San Francisco welcome Dr thank you so much well Dr let's start with the numbers a new deaths in California he stayed basically flat at about seventy a day up from a glance at the chart it looks like we're not seeing a steep decline in infections a California took a proactive approach in shutting down cities and implementing social distancing measures very early on why aren't we seeing better results well it's because transmissions on going and these deaths are occurring among people who are infected probably two to three weeks before and you know it's as long as there's ongoing transmission will continue to see deaths now it is black it's not going up and that's heartening but we would really like to see it coming down why is there on going transmission there's ongoing transmission I think first and foremost among people who live in large households and sold large multi generational families work passes from one person to another to another to another and it just keeps going also people get it when they go outside and especially if they're not wearing masks and if they're going into places where people are too close together and then finally we see a few cases among essential workers still and all of all of this in many ways is interconnected because when you talk about essential workers many of them may live in homes with lots of family members are intergenerational family members as you mentioned at the beginning as one of the complications to the stay at home order yes absolutely and and so these things do like together but to the extent that we can disentangle them and limit transmission outside of the home that's what's gonna take to get us down to a handful of cases this summer and moving from the governor stage two to the governor stage three re opening I mentioned southern California the state is not homogeneous and southern California seems to be doing worse than northern California why is that well to start with it's bigger I think the other thing probably that's going on is that at least compared to the bay area the rest of the state which include southern California went to a shelter in place orders about four days later and in southern California it really didn't seem like it sunk in until the following Monday so was almost six days later which represents at least one if not two generations of transmission of the virus of the chains of transmission or longer they're more cases by the time we went to a shelter in place order I think the other thing is are probably more introductions into southern California than there were in northern California you mean people coming into the state correct both from Asia but in Los Angeles print particular from Europe we know several chains of transmission that were tied to people coming from areas in Europe where there had been transmission that was a real big problem in New York with hundreds of new introductions from overseas I also want to ask you about something else their concerns that some of the rule counties are now moving further and to re opening and that they just don't have enough testing so some of those counties re opening are doing five to ten tests per one thousand people that's according to the LA times is that enough no I don't think so I think you know the governor's goal is to be able to have two hundred test per ten thousand people per day a lot of these cars are very small you know that they're gonna be able to get away with with fewer tests but on a per capita basis it should be about the same level and so I think that's something that needs to be worked on going forward now the chan Zuckerberg bio hub at university of California San Francisco is testing specimens for any local health department from anywhere in California so there is capacity for testing if they want to get the specimens down to San Francisco you know I mentioned earlier that we are saying some spikes and in southern California in particular we're hearing about these events where a single person can infect many others in Pasadena for instance officials traced a cluster of cases to a woman coughing at a birthday party what do you take away from that I mean there's also mother's day services in northern California Butte county that may have exposed a hundred and eighty people is it just impossible to have gatherings until we have a vaccine I think that's a fair way of thinking about it yes it's impossible to have gatherings unless people have masks on and they're outside and they're socially distance which seems like none of those conditions and get them back by either of the events you're citing you know it's just too dangerous you know you hope that they're no mortality from either of these events but it's playing with fire and you know we understand that people want to be able to get back to the life they used to leave you just can't happen quite yet I think that there's a really great example from Hong Kong which has had you know several thousand cases but only four deaths what they're doing is everybody wears masks and I think that the whole idea of wearing masks is what's going to get us out of this lease out out of it until we get to a

"The reconstruction of Butte county's Oroville dam spillway which failed two years ago is hitting a potentially huge financial snag. The state's department of water resources has rebuilt the massive concrete spillway and short up the dance emergency spillway at a cost of more than one billion dollars. And the department was expecting the Federal Emergency Management agency to reimburse a sizable amount of that cost. But this week the denied at three hundred and six million dollar reimbursement. Request for a key part of that work kick, Dan Brekke has been following this. And he joins me now. And Dan before we get to this news. Let's rewind a little bit. Can you recap? Why the spillway at Oroville dam failed two years ago, and what's been done since that failure? So the spillway began. To disintegrate in early February twenty seventeen and from afar, I mean, this is a massive concrete structure three thousand feet long one hundred fifty feet wide, and it looked indestructible. But what happened was with water running down at all of a sudden, huge chunks of concrete some as big as Volkswagen buses. I'm told went hurtling down the spillway. So they knew something was wrong. And eventually what happened was they had to shut down the spillway, temporarily water came spilling over the top of the emergency spillway, and they had a serious in problem, a shattered main spillway and fears that there would be a massive release of water that prompted the evacuation of one hundred eighty eight thousand people, and what was the reasoning behind its decision to not fulfil all of the department of water resources reimbursement. Request studies after the failure of the spillway in two thousand seventeen there is an independent forensic review of this. For instance, found that the. Reason the spillway failed was because of very poor design substandard construction and poor maintenance and FEMA has been getting what amount two invoices from the state for the for this one billion dollar project, and it has paid some of them. So for instance, it paid the first one which was just for cleanup and immediate disaster response, and it has paid for another one which is for reconstruction of part of this big concrete spillway when it came to another part of the spillway where the study say there were pre existing flaws. He say, listen, that's not the kind of thing that we're going to reimburse you for that's not a natural disaster, essentially, so with you know, you're not eligible for repayment. So could this jeopardize further work on this spillway? Well, the spillway is really completely rebuilt. Now, there is still work going on on the emergency spillway, and that's a crucial part of this system to. It's such an important project, though, that even if FEMA doesn't come through with the money, there will be other ways to pay in that work will be completed. What will the other ways to pay be? Well, this is going to be a matter of debate the state water project which were dam is part of is really paid for by a group of water agencies called the state water contractors? It includes agencies like the metropolitan water district in the Los Angeles area. And so the assumption has been that any amount that FEMA doesn't pay for will go to the state water contractors now, I just talked to the state water contractors, and they don't have a lot to say about this right now, they want to know a lot more detail about females decision. And it should be noted that the state is appealing that decision. So there's always a chance that this money will be forthcoming in the end. All right. Thank you, Dan. You're welcome..

The car the hers, the delta fire burn areas in Shasta county, the Mendocino complex Bern areas in lake Glenn and collusive counties and the campfire burn area in Butte county, and because of the heavy rain forecast for interior northern California for the rest of the day as well as some possible, heavy downpours during thunderstorms. There could be some serious debris flows. And that's why there is a flash flood watch issued for the area. Remember in national weather, service parlance, a watch is less serious than a warning. But they point out that they will if thunderstorms occur that generate the heavy rains that can cause life threatening debris flows. They will issue a flash flood. Warning for the Bern areas, but debris flows as you know can be a dangerous situation movement of a lotta soil, debris or large amounts of water.

Your landline might not be there for you when the power goes out

"This. Marketplace podcast is brought to you by Colgate. University now in its bicentennial year. Colgate university is celebrating a proud tradition of intellectual rigor at it's beautiful campus in central New York. The deadline for early decision this November fifteenth. Learn more at Colgate dot EDU. Your landline might not be there for you. When the power goes out from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. Surprise more than forty percent of Americans still have a landline. At least according to a two thousand seventeen report from the centers for disease control, people keep them around for convenience reliability and emergencies. So they can still make calls if the power goes out because of an earthquake a fire or some other disaster. But actually only about twenty percent of households have good old copper phone lines. According to the trade group, US Telekom the rest are digital connections or over IP AT and T has been pushing for almost a decade to drop analog, landline service completely and move to an all digital network. For landlines telecom say it's a lot cheaper to operate just one network, but our phone lines as reliable as the old tech Joan Engebretsen is executive editor at Tele competitor and industry publication focused on broadband telecom. It's a totally different technology. And if the. Power were to go out your phone wouldn't work very often. Though, people do have a cell phone, and you know, maybe that might still work. Also there are batteries available that will give you eight hours of backup. And in most areas. That's plenty do consumers know that. I mean, I didn't have one of those batteries. Yeah. That is a good question to the extent that people are moved onto the, oh, I p their phone company is supposed to tell them that. And explain that to them is there a weak link in our emergency infrastructure, though. If people have a harder time making calls when the power's out that is a possibility. But there is some bigger issues that relate to moving to I p throughout the whole communications network. There's been a number of what they call sunny day outages of nine one one services around the country, and it's happening in part because of the shift towards IP communications instead of having, you know, huge numbers of public. Safety answering points around the country that take the nine one one calls. The calls are getting concentrated into a smaller number of locations, and they're often backed up by you know, software that runs in data centers. And if there's a glitch in maybe a software update or something like that, it can impact many more public service answering points compared to in the past when, you know, each answering point head its own software, and so on and so if there was a problem, it was very limited. There have been a number of pretty major nine one one outages that related to, you know, software glitches that were part of the next generation infrastructure. So there's good and bad towards moving to more based dine one one you can get more capabilities with being able to send photos, but then you also need to make sure that you've got really rigorous procedures in place for making sure that the the software remains operational at all times Joan Engebretsen is executive editor at telecomm- petty. Editor a public agency report on the fires that hit northern California's wine country last year found that almost two thirds of people. They polled lost their land line connections at some point during that disaster. And after some related links. Speaking of fires and emergencies CNN last month reported that many people in paradise California, which was leveled by the massive campfire last month. Didn't get emergency alerts about the past moving fires or got them way. Too late. Apparently, landlines were automats enrolled in Butte county's alert system. But cell phones have to opt in. In other news. Remember a few weeks ago when I told you about all those phone apps that target kids with creepy advertising largely in violation of the law. Well, Verizon owned oath was all hold my juice box, the company that was formed out of the union of AOL. India who will pay almost five million dollars to settle charges that it violated the federal law against collecting data on kids under thirteen and targeting them with online advertising, according to the settlement with New York attorney general's office AOL used its attics change to target ads to kids on sites like roablocks dot com based on their web history and location information. It's the biggest fine a company has had to pay for violating COPA. The children's online privacy Protection Act for Isan, neither confirmed nor denied the findings in the case. And Finally, I am embarrassed to admit that is seriously did not know the tumbler had become a safe place to let your freak flag fly. But evidently it had and people are not happy about the sites. Sudden. And let's be honest really open ended and vague announcement earlier this week that it would remove quote, adult content.
