Potential Power Shutoffs Could Impact Parts of the Bay Area as Late-Season Fire Danger Approaches

A PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff could potentially affect customers in 15 California counties, including parts of the North Bay, although the utility has not officially announced a PSPS at this time, PG&E said in a statement.

This comes as dry conditions and high winds create fire danger and an increased risk of damage to the electrical system beginning Sunday night and lasting in some regions through early Tuesday.

PG&E said that although there is still uncertainty as to the details of the potential PSPS, about 130,000 customers could be affected in portions of 15 counties, including Alpine, Amador, Calaveras, El Dorado, Fresno, Lake, Monterey, Napa, Nevada, Placer, Sierra, Sonoma, Tulare, Tuolumne, and Yuba, as well as five tribal communities.
