KFBK Morning News Show Recap - Monday September 20th


Leads:

  1. A red flag warning is in effect for much of Northern California. The National Weather Service made the move Sunday as the region faces critical fire weather, especially for areas that received little to no rainfall over the weekend. The red flag warning will remain in effect through Monday evening for parts of the Sacramento Valley, Coastal Range and nearby foothills. In the Sierra Nevada, southern Cascades and its adjacent foothills, the warning will remain in effect through 11-a.m. Tuesday. Additionally, PG&E may shut off power to roughly 14,000 customers across 13 counties due to the critical fire weather.
  2. The world’s largest tree, the General Sherman in Sequoia National Park, was spared direct fire damage as the KNP Complex blaze swept into the park’s Giant Forest over the weekend. Firefighters wrapped the trees in aluminum insulated protective blankets...while hand crews cleared the area around the General Sherman and set controlled fires to remove ground fuel. The KNP Complex fire has burned 21,777 acres and is 0% contained.
  3. Two of Governor Gavin Newsom's children are recovering from COVID-19. The Governor's office confirmed the diagnosis on Friday. His staff says his two other children have tested negative. They say the governor and his wife "continue to support masking for unvaccinated individuals indoors to stop the spread and advocate for vaccinations as the most effective way to end this pandemic."
