A growth of blue-green algae in a pond in southern Napa County killed two dogs that swam in the murky water this week, causing local officials Friday to issue a county-wide warning.The warning by the county’s board of supervisors urges would-be swimmers to avoid ponds, rivers and streams in the area that may be contaminated with the toxic blue-green algae.Algae poisoning in people can cause serious injury to the liver, kidney and nervous system if the affected water is swallowed.The algae blooms, which can be blue-green, white or brown in appearance, are caused by sitting or slow-moving water with an abundance of nutrients, officials said.

- Napa County junkyard blaze sends smoke wafting across Bay Area
By Marissa Lang - Sunday Oct 8, 2017
A junkyard in American Canyon caught fire Sunday afternoon, sending plumes of black smoke into the air that was visible as far away as Oakland. The blaze started about 3 p.m. and quickly swept through about 20 acres of the scrap yard burning dozens of cars — and parts of cars, said Scott McLean, a spokesman for Cal Fire. He said the junkyard is in the 800 block of Green Island Road, just east of the Napa River. No one was injured and no homes were threatened. The cause of the fire was not immediately clear, and McLean said fire officials were investigating. As of about 4:30 p.m.

Hardest hit was Santa Rosa, with more than 23,460 customers blacked out, and St. Helena, with more than 7,660 losing electricity service, according to a PG&E website that tracks outages. The blackouts occurred through a broad swath of the wine country, from Geyserville in the north to Napa in the south. PG&E was mobilizing employees — from within the Bay Area as well as other parts of the state — to converge on base camps in both Napa and Sonoma counties to assess damage and where possible restore power.
