Another resident had their groceries go bad during the shut off. 

“We lost everything in the fridge and freezer,” they said. “We had friend who’s ice melted and destroyed their floors.”

With Pacific Gas and electric now forecasting another potential shutoff  Wednesday, people are stocking up again on ice and other necessities
