TBS Today, March 22

As we noted earlier this month, we've been working on a story about a longtime Alameda County deputy district attorney who resigned from her job citing ethical concerns that stemmed from working for the new DA.

We bring you that story this morning and thought it might be a good read over morning coffee. We look forward to your feedback on this one.

In other news, we've already gotten multiple reports from several of you this morning that your power is still out. According to PG&E's outage map, that's the case for thousands of local residents.

Last night, we posted live updates on Twitter throughout the storm thanks to reports from so many of you. The community response was truly incredible.

Make sure to check out our Twitter feed for all those dramatic photos and videos.

Our storm story has also been updated since we sent it, so don't miss that. We've asked the city to let us know what it can today about the overall storm impacts it's tallied.

We also published a story last night about the latest fatality reported in People's Park. We'll aim to learn more.

It may well be another big news day today. Stay tuned and stay safe out there.
