More Santa Anas Forecast For This Weekend ()
The mop up is still going on after last week’s devastating firestorms, one of which was started by a boy playing with matches. Officials have not identified him, reported his age or said if they’ll press charges. Now it’s predicted that the Santa Ana winds will be back again—this coming Friday.

DWP Proposes Giving Valley Residents A Summer Break On Electricity Rates ()
Mulholland Drive would be the boundary line for two climate zones that LA’s Department of Water and Power wants to establish for setting electricity rates. During the summer, the San Fernando Valley is hotter than the rest of the city, so the DWP wants to charge less north of Mulholland. The measure is billed in part as a conservation effort—but rates would go down as houses increase the amount of power they use.
