"Is possibility of periods of heavy rain coming up through tomorrow as you said, but so far they've gone about four inches a day, the highest points of the highest totals up in the mountains there. And that is a little less. And so there were. It was some hope that the, uh the soil's would hold that there is enough, you know, like grass vegetation that's reestablished itself that might hold the slopes up there, but we have to see. We know that you track PG any a lot. It was already reporting outages in the Santa Cruz mountains before the storm. And that's where the storm was expected to be felt the most. How widespread have the outages been? They've been quite widespread. Virtually every county that PD any served seems to have some outages. Um, about a quarter million customers that looks like are out right now. We don't know what the storm total is. The biggest adage we see is around Stockton area in San Joaquin County about 60,000 customers and there's several counties in the Bay Area. Alameda, Contra Costa and Santa Clara that also have about and Solano counties that have 10,000 customers. Worm or out. Alright, we'll stick with us, Dan we're going to bring in Jonathan Cox Deputy Fire Chief for Cal Fire San Matteo Division Jonathan Cox, Are you with us? Yeah. Good morning, Ryan. Good morning. So what sorts of reports? Are you getting from the areas in the Santa Cruz mountains that were put on high alert days ago because of worries about debris flows. Yes. So we are in an area kind of south coast corridor of San Mateo County, where we with some other agencies evacuated. Just over 300 people over the last 24 hours and overnight. We saw the impacts that, Dan said with the high winds of over the rain. Our crews have been going to the normal calls that you'd expect as a result of that down power lines down trees. The good news is that we haven't had any reports of major debris flow. Or major road closures. Yet that's really our biggest fears. Debris flows into communities and road closures where people couldn't get out of an area and that's really why we took the proactive step of calling close evacuation orders early. And this comes in a period when first responders and even residents of the area have been through. Ah, lot in these last say six months. Do we have any idea When it will be safe enough for folks who had to evacuate to return to their homes. Yeah, absolutely. I think one thing that we're really conscious of is we don't want evacuation fatigue too set in. It's been a very rough eight months for a lot of California with the fires, and now the potential debris flows. So what we're doing is we're working with our hydrologists and meteorologists and our counterparts looking at the modeling, and as soon as everybody's comfortable to get people back in their homes, we will do. Dots our number one priority. It's unlike a fire where we're gonna have to wait for infrastructure to be reestablished and ah lot of different agencies to be involved. I think we'll have a little bit more of an expeditious. Turn around and getting people back in the homes as soon as the threat is mitigated, and we can't forget about the other crisis that this storm hits us during the Corona virus pandemic. How has that affected operations for Testing sites and other coded services. Yeah, So you know, the testing is taking place throughout of a lot of different locations. County health is really done a good job of making sure it's been accessible to all different communities assed far as the fire agencies are concerned, we've internally have the ability to get our firefighters vaccinated, which is a good step for response. And now we're supporting the counties by giving vaccines ourselves as the empties and paramedics. This storm obviously is a concern with the testing sites themselves. But as far as we've seen.

But as far as we've seen In the overnight hours has not been impacted yet on that's really a big thing and a good sign for all the all the residents with my last 30 seconds. Let me ask DVDs Dan Bracke as much headaches as all this rain causes. This has come after a disappointingly dry winter so far, What can you say about the rainfall? And is that good news? Well, it is good news, Tonto catch up a little bit on our big rainfall deficit and the you know, I guess the good news is that there hasn't been any crisis because of this storm, and the bad news is hated Say anything about bad news is we still have a pretty big deficit and will have for some time. Okay. Thank you very much. That's KQED reporter Dan Brekke e but also Jonathan Cox, Deputy Fire Chief for Cal Fire in San Mateo. Thanks to both of you. Welcome. You're listening to morning edition on KQED. Let's listen to Joe McConnell reporting traffic now in Orinda. It's the biggest in one of the only slow spots we have.

"Some bladders up on the heels of there's water people can say those are those are the things that can be done beforehand and right now one that gets done ad-hoc as the events happening so if i may be try to synthesize this in my With the few brain cells. I have left you folks of essentially done a google maps on steroids in getting to know these areas these zones as you build them out and you have all this detail about where homes are and what the top policies like and is it a one lane road or two lane roads etc. Sarah as a crisis is unfolding. Inste- you're able to take that as is data and correlated with how the fires behaving How the weather's been of late where the fire is likely to go. And then as a result of all of that. There's a predictive capability of this. That says well. Then based on all of that where the fire is whether wind is where the moisture is where the rain is or not in our case And we're all the people are and how the roads work etcetera etcetera and mother a whole bunch of other factors but in a real time basis. Take that data and allow chief cox in the rest of the team to make smart forward-leaning decisions about what to do and in what sequence an essay situation like we had with czu that literally translates into lives. Because if they decide to go here versus there and fire didn't move the way they thought it would move and maybe they would have known that with better data and more real time information but because they didn't have it. They deployed their their scarce resources. In a way that the the would be better served in this other. That's really the big trade off. Is it not getting this totally. And i'm sure jonathan can can chime in but the the the trade off is both accuracy in time. Like how much information can i have. And how quickly. Can i make a decision that is as high probability of being correct right and we saw with the czu complex we went from one zone on the seventeenth or the eighteen to one hundred and thirty four shot within five days. I within five days and that tuesday wednesday. We had nuts five between those two days. There was something like eight or nine press releases that went out because so quickly they started to understand. Holy sh- That you can say anything you want around me so it was just going gonna do this part of boulder creek. No god this thing. The winds are really picking up. Let's add the rest of boulder creek and felton right like it's just like it moved so quickly in the when you look at the satellite image and you see where the fire went. They made the right decision right. I mean it moved so that was twelve hours. You know and for these guys to be able to predict that and to have the right information to be able to make those decisions. That's only gonna get better so the way we look at it as for the stuff that we're doing it for the fire folks and law the technology windsor at our back. We've got satellite imagery. We've got satellite fire detection. So let's say we're getting fired detections on the one meter every kilometer right in a couple of years it'll be every half kilometer and a couple more years so that stuff is just getting the there's more data were were able to use machine learning and a i start processing that rebel. To look at detections were all of that stuff is kind of moving in the right direction. A hard thing is how do you get that. Into the hands of fire and law. In a way that you know they. Can you know with gloves on. Used right it's not. It's it can't be a super complex tool with forty dropdown boxes and and it requires five people to operate. It needs to be something that i bring it up. It's going to do this one thing. Well and and i can execute what. It's called overproof. charlie. I wasn't going to say that i wasn't going to terms.

"What the technology enabled firefighting environment of the next couple of years of the near term future can look like here so i'm gonna i'm gonna pay it at a little bit too Not to be focused on the firefighting right. There's a lot of people that are really focused on what we would call incident command. Or where you're gonna lay down the The retardant or where are you going to pick up water and move that right. That's a very very well defined problem. They're still technology that can be brought into that space and being in the tent we saw that their satellites that are providing more real time. They're working with the united states air force who's flying over them using high resolution to figure out where the fires are actually located in the in the operation center so that stuff is is going up in the right direction place. It is really in need of help. Is the evacuations and getting people out of the out of the way. So jonathan and you were talking about How do we mitigate. How do we deal with the climate stuff you know. Well there's always the concept of think globally act locally right and you've got to act locally in order to solve that so we're focused on very small community unit and so we want to bring that type of information. The information about fuel loads information about drought information about where things have have burned down to the local level so if at each zone people start to take ownership of the mitigations and of the protections of potentially widening the roads or adding an additional way to get out. That's where the real value gonna come in. And so we can bridge that gap that you guys were talking about of. How do we deal with california. The climate issues and all of this stuff. How can we bring that to you in your neighborhood. Right and then flip it tat if you can see in the future very near future and we actually did it at some of these fires being able to have the guy who shows up at the fire the first person on the scene. Say i see it's over here. I've got a detection be able to quickly run up a series of simulations and then quickly assess whether that thing is going to be big on which direction it's going to go in and then right there from that that device say let's start the evacuation. Now we don't need to bring in the tents. We don't need to wait three hours or other people we can actually start that communication immediately And so that's where we're going to start to really get that reflex time down from many many hours to potentially minutes which could save you know. Save lives so by doing the planning. And the hyper local mitigations we can start to really save property and people learn how to get out and then by getting into the hands of the the law and fire. We can actually get people out more quickly. So that's that's what we see. Landing here reflects time is is really what you're focusing on his at right. We're while we're focusing.

"We were having a press conference before everything started and then after everything ended for the day. And i for one as a take away from. This incident will always be an advocate especially in populated areas to follow that mall at least twice a day. Communicate outs the public. I can't thank you enough for not just the job that you did. Which of course was incredible of saving so many lives and countless tens of millions of dollars and never mind you know everybody who lives in this region when we found the fire had gone to big basin way and had destroyed that beautiful campground and all that and of course the two thousand year old redwoods that we all love so much. It's also painful but when you guys on twitter on facebook you set up your own twitter handle specific to our fire and we could watch you real time. We said my wife. And i sat there in bed in the morning. We used to a we. My wife used to say. Hey our shows on the morning. We'd have breakfast with you. And in the evening we'd have we'd have dinner with you but our show's on sit there and whether it was coffee and cereal in the morning or whatever. It was with a glass of wine at night. You gave us so much comfort by telling us exactly what was going on. Who is being and so forth and so on and when you're sitting in their evaluating a do we don't we have to leave. We had felt like we wanted to leave before an evacuation. So are thinking was well. If you're going to start evacuating the college and we need to make plans to evacuate. Because it's gonna hit santa cruz so we were getting on the front end of that We had family in san jose on another fire which got close to their house. We hit evacuated our house in santa cruz. We had family in santa cruz. Mountains which you evacuated with their pets and their kids and their hens and their parents and their keys and their dogs in their cats. I felt like fucking noah but we had all these people but then we were getting afraid that we're going to have to evacuate all of santa cruz we. We rented a place in san luis obispo abyss but at creek great expense. And we were going to move the entire. They said they were pet friendly. And we're like well we're going to find out how pet friendly they are when we get there but like this was the level of panic in the community and so that that you having your on quote unquote our show Twice a day allowed us to literally gain this out in twelve hour increments in terms of how it was going to affect our lives and our loved ones in real time with you. It was an incredible public service. Yeah that's good to hear i. You know i've heard that's must people. I appreciate the feedback. It one of the key people in that organization of updates was mark run on the operation side. And it's not always that we bring in an operations person into a press conference because they obviously have other things to focus on but of all the people standing up on that stage. The one person people wanna hear from is mark because he actually knows what the fire is doing out there. And i think you know my hat's off the mark i mean he's a natural speaker which is helpful but it's also a big inconvenience to him because he's focused on operations to twice daily being early and late early and late but at the end of the day. It's what's the right thing for the public to hear. It's important that they get that message from the person who's in charge of that because you're right at the the impacts and the actions that people take based on that information can make some some big difference in people's lives now. There's so much. I think we can learn from you but maybe if we can go to when you're faced with crisis like this. That is exploding literally so quickly and one of the other things. I'm content continuously in awe of what you folks do is how many agencies were at work towards the kind of keep the high the high point of resources working on this On this crisis yes. I don't i don't really exact number of agencies we had on there. It was hundreds though you know you look at all the fire. Or law enforcement agencies mutually i think at our peak we had seven unified command agencies between law and fire agencies in the two counties who had jurisdiction authority over the fire itself. And not really. Is you know one of the greatest things we have in california. That people may not have heard of this called the incident command system in. It really is adaptable flexible. Expandable contract framework for allowing everybody to fit in and work together and get something done based on common language. Common planning cycle. A common mapping communications. But it a man. It's it's it's on inspiring if people were to see the backside of it to get all of these different agencies to get under one ten into one basecamp all get paid all gets august. Slept all get all as it.

It was highly unusual. A massive lightning storm hit the region. I remember well. I was up for much of it as many people who live here were over.

Just south of san francisco. A monster fire began consuming. The santa cruz mountains it ultimately was called the czu lightning complex fire and We'll have more information on the fire in our show notes at wlac dot com. If you wanna learn more. It was a horrifying fire and it started eating the mountainous area. That has a lot of underbrush. Some of the most beautiful ancient redwoods and a lot of wonderful homes towns and businesses two days after the fire began a rapid change in wind conditions caused a massive expansion of the fire to over forty thousand acres. Well that was happening in the santa cruz region at the same time throughout northern california. Similar monster fires broke out in the modern history of northern california. There have been few instances if any like this one. The crisis was the sky turned a horrible brown orange. It rained snowflakes of ash. The air was unbreathable and this all took place for weeks. Our firefighters police and other legendary first responders were called to serve. Were called to action in the face of monster fires and a massive resource shortage because everybody was spread throughout the region it was truly terrifying many towns near where we live were evacuated and as a matter of fact to pods of our family in different areas on different edges of of two different fires had to evacuate and they ended up coming to our place with all their dogs. Cats chickens parrots and everything in between the entire region was in a panic at its peak the fire near us. The czu fire destroyed almost ten thousand buildings. It also destroyed the beloved big basin redwoods state park and tragically. One person died in the fire on september. Twenty second cal fire reported that the czu fire had destroyed over eighty six thousand acres and it had finally been contained chief. Jonathan cox is the cal fire executive responsible for fire operations in this region. Chief cox and a handful of other legendary cal fire executives with help from executives from other departments and agencies police forces and other legendary first responders were directly responsible for stopping this horrible fire and saving this part of the world at one point.

"Enough. We've had enough. Please. You know, I get your power. It's enough. I'm sure the news For the latest on the glass fire. We're joined Live by Cal Fire spokesman Jonathan Cox. Good morning, Jonathan. Good morning. We understand that this fire was active late yesterday around Angwin in Calistoga. How would you describe the fire activity overnight into this morning? Yes, the fire dude stayed to pick up an activity yesterday afternoon and continue to burn in the overnight hours. We're really seeing the front end of that weather change with the red flight conditions. Coming into effect today and not really fueled the fire behavior on what we would consider the eastern flank of this fire between essentially mounting Halina all the way down towards the community of England. And as you mentioned, we're expecting very strong winds to come in this afternoon. Are you worried that the's flames could spread and intensified today just because of the weather? Yeah, You know, there's three things that we look at. When we look at the predicted fire behavior and weather fuels and topography. The fuels and topography are fairly fixed. Then it's the weather. That's the variable that can always change our plans or Put us into a much more defensive posture. That's what we're anticipating. Today is with the resurgence of this red flag warning. We're gonna have Tio engage in structure defense in the communities that we have evacuated. On really try to hold the criminal. The lines that we do have in place to ensure that we don't lose ground. We've already with Artie man, and we're talking about temperatures in the mid to upper nineties expected in the fire zone. What is Cal fire doing to make sure firefighters stay healthy in weather like this? Yeah. So what we have is a 24 hour on 24 hour shift schedules, so fresh crews coming on right now we have over 2100 firefighters assigned to the incident. When they get their briefing this morning, and they go out, though they'll be given a safety message. Part about safety message is really Ensure that they paint themselves on also take breaks. Often. When we hit the peak hours of heat, they'll be stopping more often getting understand, said drinking more water and really entering that they don't overdo it at one point today because it is a full 24 hour shift. Is there an outlook for the glass fire into the weekend? Because that's where we're headed. Yeah. You know, I think we really have the 24 hours ahead of us As we go through this weather powder. The good news is the long range model looks to be a lot cooler and a lot more favorable with normal Marine in Florence. I think you know, as our number personnel comes up, So does containment. Eso. We believe you know, that number is going to go up over the coming days. But really, we were focused right now in the next 24 hour operational period really do as much as we can to protect the community through another. Now I have heard a Cal fire officials say that we need to be happy about having 2% containment on a fire doesn't sound like a lot, but it was really, really hard Fought. Are there any new numbers on containment? And how long do we expected? Raise that that it will take to raise that number. Yes. So I believe this morning. The fires It's sitting about 56,000 acres a TTE 5% contained and obviously every percent containment When you're looking at a fire of this size is hours and hours of hard work down on the ground, either. I'm with tools or equipment or or or hose lines. So you know, when you have this much open line around a fire, it literally just takes quite a bit of time 20 to ensure that those containment lines get made and held. When the when the terrible weather comes in. I believe those numbers may go up a little more quickly. But right now we're still in that stage of some dynamic fire be together could increase the the acreage on this fire. I've got about 10. Seconds left. Tell me quickly. You are expecting Mohr personnel Mohr firefighters, adding to the 2000 already on the incident. We are one of the top priority fires in California right now. So are critical needs. We will see additional resource is coming into our fire on them. We'll get them out on the line in our rotation as quickly as they get here. All right, Cal Fire's Jonathan Cox, Thank you very much.
