News you don’t want to miss for Nov. 20:

1. A revised weather forecast means PG&E power shut-offs in the East Bay hills are not likely to occur this week, SFGate reports. Furthermore, expected rainfall next week may preclude any further shut-offs in the near future.

2. A man was stabbed and killed at the South Hayward station on Tuesday afternoon, KGO-TV reports. The victim was attempting to stop the suspect from stealing another person’s property.

3. Don’t expect to see wild grizzly bears roaming the streets of Oakland. A cracked glass window in the bear enclosure is safe, but the damage was done by a child who was repeatedly throwing rocks at the window, SFGate reports. The repairs will cost the zoo $67,000.
