Fire coverage in Moraga.

My family was cut off from most of the communication when the power went off in Moraga and then the fire in Moraga broke out, the authorities cut off the home WiFi..but we found out that they could get text messages from me in San Jose. I started sending them your news via text and she could open them. At 6:00 am they found out from me and your app that the fire was a 4 min. drive from their home. And they were never warned....
I flipped to other channels but no one was on the ground in Moraga..thank you for your up close coverage....

Keeping up with friends and family

We recently moved away from the Bay Area. Enjoyed the reliability of the having the local news available on my phone at that time. Now that we are in WA state I can still keep up with what’s going on. Gives me a little peace of mind having a young adult child and friends living several states away when I can still keep up with the news in the area.
