The head of California's Public Utilities Commission on Monday ordered PG&E to revamp its power shutdown program to avoid the kind of chaos and breakdowns that were evident in last week’s planned blackouts.

The PUC says it’s clear the utility was not up to the challenge.
A 66-year-old man accused of fatally shooting five of his neighbors on Chicago's Northwest Side over the weekend left a note on his door with a haunting message, prosecutors said in court Monday.
"No mercy," written in Polish, was the message on Krysztof Marek's door, prosecutors said.
"Remember, whatever s--- they do to you, you control it yourself, not them" the message continued. "Enough!! They have to pay for it!"
Authorities evacuated an elementary school in Montana on Tuesday after officials found what they thought were the remnants of a homemade bomb that exploded, but it turned out to be a plastic bottle filled with nuts and bolts left in the schoolyard.
School officials in Helena made the discovery shortly before classes began at Rossiter Elementary School. They blocked off the area and called 911, Lewis and Clark County Sheriff Leo Dutton said.
An investigation found the plastic bottle wrapped in black electrical tape was full of washers, nuts and bolts, along with a non-flammable unidentified liquid, Dutton said. There was no detonator.
