  1. All available California Highway Patrol officers in San Diego and across the Golden State were slated to hit the streets Wednesday evening in search of intoxicated and unsafe drivers amid peak traffic. The CHP crackdown was expected to run from 6 p.m. Wednesday through 11:59 p.m. Sunday. (San Diego Patch)
  2. An earthquake was mistakenly reported to have reached San Diego County, authorities said. A quake with a magnitude of 4.9 was erroneously reported within two miles of Mira Mesa, 10.1 miles of Poway and 8.1 miles of Solana Beach at around 4:30 a.m., according to a representative from the National Earthquake Information Center. (City News Service)
  3. Using a new artificial intelligence identifying method, researchers at UC San Diego and their collaborators have taken what may turn out to be a significant leap forward in the understanding of human cells, according to a new report. The pilot study β€” which combines microscopy, biochemistry techniques and artificial intelligence in a technique known as Multi-Scale Integrated Cell β€” revealed around 70 components contained within a human kidney cell line, half of which had never been seen before. (City News Service)
  4. Dry conditions and gusty winds are expected to return to San Diego County on Thanksgiving Day, raising wildfire risks and threatening power shutoffs across the region. The possibility of strong Santa Ana winds prompted officials to issue a red flag warning for parts of the county and much of Southern California. A high wind watch will be in effect from 9 p.m. Wednesday until 3 p.m. Thursday for San Diego County inland valleys and mountains, according to the National Weather Service. The red flag warning will be in effect from 4 a.m. Thursday until 6 p.m. Friday for the same areas. (San Diego Patch)
