Before PG&E Corp.'s massive blackout swept across Northern California, Tesla Inc. issued a politely worded but urgent message to its many area customers: charge up your vehicle, now.

Tesla has been sending in-car messages to the owners of its electric vehicles in California's areas affected by a planned mass power shutoff, recommending drivers to charge their EVs to 100 percent, Electrek reports, citing the in-car messages drivers have received. The company's CEO, Elon Musk, has said the company will have autonomous-driving technology that requires no human intervention ready by the end of next year , a more aggressive timeline than those announced or suggested by other auto or tech companies.

"All Tesla Supercharger stations in regions affected by California power outages will have Tesla Powerpacks within next few weeks. Just waiting on permits". Tesla owners reported that their go-to stations appeared busier than usual. PG&E said the outages would affect almost a million customers in California across more than half of the state's 58 counties, the most extensive planned blackout ever for the state. Some get the feeling Musk and Tesla should have gotten around to this before these new blazes set parts of the state alight once again.

California's 2019 wildfire season has begun as high winds whip up fires across the northern part of the state. The carmaker issued a preemptive advisory overnight to many vehicle owners, telling them to charge up ahead of the planned outages, which utility Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) began rolling out on Wednesday to try to lessen the risk of wildfires.

Apple draws criticisms for deleting app one day after China rebuke
The anonymous developer of HKmap.live responded to Apple's decision in a series of Wednesday tweets. It added that "this app violates our guidelines and local laws".

On the other hand, PG&E said it had restored power to 126,000 customers in Northern California by 6:00 a.m. Thursday.

The company says some of its customers should be prepared to be without power for a week. That will effectively give them a power reserve for future outages.

Wildfires continue to rage while new ones have broken out in both northern and southern California.
