New evacuations amid warning over strong winds

New evacuations have been ordered in California as officials warn wildfires could spread because of extremely strong winds. Some 50,000 residents in the towns of Windsor and Healdsburg, north of San Francisco, have been told to move. Meanwhile, Pacific Gas & Electric said it would turn off power in 36 counties for 48 hours or longer, affecting up to two million people. There are fears wind gusts could hit power lines, causing new fires. A state of emergency has been declared in Los Angeles and Sonoma counties and thousands of firefighters were still battling flames.
