PG&E releases 3rd link, website crashes


SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — PG&E officials announced Wednesday evening that they have created a new website after their other site experienced a near blackout.

At 8:13 p.m., they tweeted a link to their new website, but has since removed the tweet when the link wasn’t working.

About an hour later, PG&E released a new link.

However, the third and alternate link seems to not be working either.

According to PG&E, the website is expected to provide outage maps and other critical information.

PG&E’s website went down shortly after they announced the power shutoffs.

PG&E officials told customers to check their website to see if they would be impacted.

Instead, customers who went to the site were greeted by error pages.

24 hours after the initial shutoff announcement, the site was still not working.

PG&E said the utility company was “experiencing high volume of traffic” and apologized “for the inconvenience.”

“Thank you for your patience as our team is working as quickly as possible to restore access,” the utility company said.
