(Bloomberg) -- Utilities have cut power to more than 117,000 homes and businesses in Southern California to prevent live wires from falling and sparking wildfires as hurricane-strength winds rattle the state.The shutoffs, which began Wednesday, could ultimately impact more than 1 million people as winds sweep hillsides and mountains left bone dry by drought. Gusts have exceeded 90 miles (144 kilometers) per hour.At least three wildfires were burning in Southern California Thursday, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. The largest is a fast-growing brush fire that’s forced evacuations in Orange County and had ripped through more than 7,200 acres and injured two fire fighters, according to Twitter posts by the Orange County Fire Authority.Edison International’s Southern California Edison said Thursday in an incident report that a tree fell on its power lines during high winds in the area of the Cerritos fire, which has burned 200 acres in Riverside County. The cause of the fire is under investigation and Southern California Edison will cooperate with the probe, spokesman David Song said.California has already been charred by record fires that have burned 4.2 million acres and killed 31 people in 2020. Utilities including PG&E Corp. and Southern California Edison and have cut power repeatedly to prevent power lines from falling and igniting dry brush.Near San Diego, Sempra Energy’s San Diego Gas & Electric utility has cut power to more than 65,000 homes and businesses at 2:45 p.m. local time, or about 195,000 people based on the size of the average household. Another 29,500 homes and businesses could lose power, according to the company’s website.More than 30 of the utility’s weather stations have recorded the strongest winds in 10 years, including gusts of up to 94 miles per hour, according to SDG&E meteorologist Brian D’Agostino.“I’ve been now working here in Southern California for over a decade, and this is certainly top three in terms of strength of the wind,” he said, in a video posted online.Further north, Southern California Edison has cut electricity to more than 51,000 homes and businesses, according to its website. Another 191,600 could follow suit, which would constitute the region’s largest blackout to prevent wildfires this year. PG&E said it had blacked out about 600 customers in the Central Valley.Last week, Edison cut power to thousands of customers on Thanksgiving during high winds. In 2019, PG&E filed for bankruptcy after its wires sparked the deadliest blaze in state history.The high winds will be mostly confined to Southern California but could touch a portion of the state’s Central Valley as well.(Updates number of customers without power in first paragraph, Edison report on Cerritos fire in fourth paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

(Bloomberg) -- Asian stocks looked set for a cautious start Friday after news broke late in the U.S. session that briefly spurred confusion over a Covid-19 vaccine roll out. The dollar retreated.Australian shares opened little changed and futures slipped in Japan. S&P 500 contracts fluctuated after the gauge spent most of the session at a record high before a report that identified supply chain problems behind a previously disclosed slowdown in Pfizer Inc.’s production plans for its vaccine. On the pandemic front, California will lock down its economy if its critical-care capacity reaches its limit. The Nasdaq Composite eked out a gain to close at an all-time high. Treasuries ticked higher.Global stocks remain within a whisker of record highs as investors bet positive vaccine developments can help sustain a global recovery next year. Uncertainty remains about a U.S. stimulus package, where a bipartisan proposal endorsed by Democratic leaders as a basis for negotiations is luring increased interest from Republicans, lifting the chances for a deal by year-end.“If we do see earnings growth start to pickup, perhaps 25 to 30% on the S&P 500 next year, and if we see rates remain low and stimulus in place, that remains a good backdrop for risk assets,” Mona Mahajan, investment strategist at Allianz Global Investors, said on Bloomberg TV.Meanwhile, President-elect Joe Biden said he would ask all Americans to wear a mask to prevent the spread of the coronavirus for the first 100 days of his administration. A study from Moderna Inc. showed its vaccine has the potential for durable immunity.Elsewhere, oil edged higher as OPEC+ reached an agreement to ease its oil-output cuts next year more gradually than previously planned.

(Bloomberg) -- Oil held onto a fifth weekly gain after OPEC and its allies reached a compromise deal to gradually taper output curbs following a week of acrimonious deliberations.Futures in New York were little changed, after rising 0.8% on Thursday to the highest closing level in more than a week. OPEC+ ministers reached an agreement for the cartel to add 500,000 barrels a day to the market in January. The group will now hold monthly consultations to determine how to adjust production in subsequent months, a delegate said, asking not to be named because the information was private.The market had widely expected OPEC+ to extend current production cuts by a quarter, although the oil futures curve is suggesting that additional output is needed. Brent’s nearest futures are at a premium to later ones, a structure known as backwardation that indicates tight supply. Meanwhile, the December 2021-December 2022 spreads for both West Texas Intermediate and Brent have recently moved to backwardation and furthered their rally on Thursday.The OPEC+ compromise deal comes following a clash earlier in the week between Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates on next year’s output plans. Maintaining the delicate balance the oil market finds itself in has been a complex task, with demand recovering at varying speeds worldwide and prospects for a vaccine buoying the outlook further out even as near-term risks persist.Any adjustments to tapering oil production cuts can be in any direction, with a potential decision based on all factors, both negative and positive, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak said at a news conference following Thursday’s OPEC+ meeting.Adding to oil’s bullish tone were signs that Democrats and Republicans are moving closer to agreeing another round of fiscal stimulus to lift the pandemic-hit economy ahead of a widespread vaccine rollout. While talks remain at an impasse that’s lasted since the summer, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Thursday it was “heartening” that Democrats embraced a smaller price tag for a stimulus package without giving any indication he was willing to raise his own offer to get a deal.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
