The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning due to the 

possibility of dry lightning in combination with gusty winds for coastal 

counties from Mendocino south to Monterey. The warning goes into effect today at midnight and is expected to last through Wednesday.

A Fire Weather Watch for lightning has also been issued starting today fo

Northern California. The thunderstorms are expected to initially be dry, 

which will heighten the fire danger, but should begin to bring some rainfall 

by midweek. 

In preparation for the heightened fire potential due to the lightning, CAL

 FIRE increased its staffing over the weekend bringing on additional 

personnel and staffing extra resources. The California National Guard is 

also assisting fire crews with the aid of several helicopters and two C-130 aircraft used as airtankers.

Near Clear Lake Oaks, the 70 acre double Fire is 100% contained

The 4450 acrer Corral Complex Fire in the Trinity Alps Wilderness is 

zero contained with 482 personnel fighting the fire.

 Priority is protecting the Hoopa Reservation on the west and Highway 299 

communities on the south although the fire is still some distance away


Two Mendocino engines have joined about 700 firefighters battling a Butte County blaze that threatens 400 structures and has forced hundreds of 

people to evacuate. 

The campaign to recall Lake County Sheriff Frank Rivero last Thursday 

submitted 7,762 signatures to the Registrar of Voters, enough to call a 

special election if validated.

The Lake Registrar of Voters has 30 days to certify that at least 7,026 of the Rivero recall signatures are valid.Supervisors has between 88 and 125 

days to call a countywide special election which will cost over $90,000.

Brown said he's confident the signatures will be approved and the recall of Rivero will succeed. Brown alleges Rivero has cost the county nearly $750,000 in legal fees and other costs, including a $250,000 settlement to 

employees he terminated..

Rivero said the allegations against him are lies and he's not worried Rivero claims he's actually saved the county money by cutting $1.1 million from his budget.












Belatedly, the Coastal Commission has vowed an investigation into offshore fracking, including what powers the agency has to regulate it.

The decision came weeks after reports that the oil industry has fracked 

wells in federal waters off the coast. Environmental groups also produced 

documents showing fracking has occurred on a dozen wells just off the 

coast of Long Beach, in state waters.

The agency, which met this week in Santa Cruz, has clear oversight over oil production in state waters. It also verifies federal approvals for compliance with state coastal regulations, but has never held up a project.

The revelations clearly caught the Coastal Commission unaware. The board set no timeline for its investigation, which will include talks with state and

 federal regulators authorities and a review of fracking underwater.

”We do not yet understand the extent of fracking in federal or state waters, 

nor fully understand its risks,” said Coastal Commission Deputy Director 

Allison Dettmer, who will lead the effort.

Last week, several state lawmakers -- including Assemblyman Mark Stone,  a former vice chair of the Coastal 

Commission -- asked federal regulators to open a probe into offshore fracking. Those lawmakers also sent an Aug. 8 letter to the Coastal Commission.






The Lake Board of Supervisors this morning will get an update on the Lakeside Heights subdivision, where a landslide damaged numerous homes this 


The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 20, in the board chambers 

on the first floor of the Lake County Courthouse, It will be broadcast live on TV8.
