Reporter Roundup for August 10

Wildfires and Evictions | August 19

On the August 19 edition of the Reporter Roundup, KPCC reporters discuss the heat wave, wildfires, efforts to stop evictions and COVID-19 relief for immigrants. 

The current heat wave is putting a ton of stress on the power grid. Sharon McNary offers tips to help us prevent rolling blackouts. 

The state is battling dozens of wildfires and Jacob Margolis reports on the strain this is putting on our firefighting resources. 

Lawmakers are working to keep people in their homes. Aaron Mendelson updates us on what Sacramento is doing to stop evictions from re-starting in September. 

Correspondent Josie Huang reports on the COVID-19 resources available for immigrants who do not qualify for federal aid.
