PG&E announces another round of possible power shutoffs

PG&E on Monday began notifying 264,000 customers in 22 counties about a potential public safety power shutoff starting Wednesday morning through Thursday in response to expected high wind gusts that pose a risk of its electrical system igniting fires.

The six Bay Area counties and the number of customers that would be affected by the shutoff are Alameda, 12,200; Contra Costa, 23,230; Marin, 23,440; Napa, 11,180; Solano, 1,970; and Sonoma, 39,940. This would be the sixth public safety power shutoff this year.

PG&E said it will notify the potentially affected residents again 24 and four hours prior to the shutoff. Customers who have provided their contact information to PG&E will notified by phone, text and email.

PG&E said it will again open community resource centers where restrooms, bottled water, electronic device charging and air conditioning will be provided for up to 100 people at each center. The locations will be available at pge.com/pspsupdates. The resource centers also will provide snacks, ice, blankets and a heater, according to PG&E.
