3,600 PG&E customers still without power in Bay Area

About 3,600 Pacific Gas & Electric Co. customers remain without power in the Bay Area this morning, two days after a storm caused outages throughout the region, a utility spokesman said.

Outages are affecting about 1,670 customers in the South Bay near Los Gatos, about 1,400 in Napa County, 200 on the Peninsula, and 30 in the East Bay, PG&E spokesman Joe Molica said at about 10 a.m.

Roughly 242,600 Bay Area customers have experienced outages since the storm arrived early Tuesday, bringing heavy rain and strong winds. PG&E crews had restored power to about 239,000 customers by this morning, Molica said.

“We expect to get the majority of these outages taken care of today,” he said.

Molica said that throughout the PG&E system, more than 140 miles of wire has been replaced, along with nearly 300 transformers and about 190 poles.

He said those numbers will continue to go up, and that “our crews will remain mobilized until everyone's service is back on.”
