LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Gov. Gavin Newsom has declared a statewide emergency as California broils under a heat wave that has caused extreme weather conditions.

Several wildfires are burning throughout the state of California, and high temperatures are taxing the state’s power grid to the breaking point.

“We are deploying every resource available to keep communities safe as California battles fires across the state during these extreme conditions,” Newsom said in a statement.

  1. Bill Wisniewski says:

    newsom needs to declare a state emergency for CALPERS’ underfunded, unsustainable defined benefit employee pensions. we need pension reform to defined contribution retirement plans because pension-broke California can no longer afford obsolete, anachronistic defined benefit pensions. CALPERS embezzled all the bullet train billions for pension shortfalls.
