Bay Area counties removed from power shutoff

Bay Area

(KRON) — PG&E cancelled an anticipated power shutoff for all Bay Area counties originally warned that they may lose power Thursday morning.

Originally, thousands in Napa County and some hundred in Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Clara and Sonoma were expecting a power shutoff as gusty winds increase the risk of a fire sparking and spreading.

In total, California counties anticipating power shutoffs will impact about 34,000 customers now:

  • Butte County: 10,259 customers, 922 Medical Baseline customers
  • Colusa County: 4 customers, 0 Medical Baseline customers
  • Glenn County: 162 customers, 7 Medical Baseline customers
  • Humboldt County: 288 customers, 5 Medical Baseline customers
  • Plumas County: 434 customers, 8 Medical Baseline customers
  • Shasta County: 18,480 customers, 1,464 Medical Baseline customers
  • Tehama County: 2,511 customers, 189 Medical Baseline customers
  • Trinity County: 395 customers, 21 Medical Baseline customers
  • Yolo County: 10 customers, 0 Medical Baseline customers

Crews from the utility company still have to restore power that was wiped out from the Glass Fire, which is 100% contained as of earlier this week.


Starting at 8 a.m., PG&E Community Resource Centers are open Thursday, where customers without power can go to get supplies, use a washroom and more.
