SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – PG&E has given the all clear for San Mateo County, the North Bay, the Sierra Foothills and areas south of I-80, after weather and winds have started to improve.

The areas saw planned power outages, called Public Safety Power Shutoffs, due to a red flag high wind warning.

PG&E is now patrolling, inspecting and restoring power where it is safe to do so.

It is unclear as to exactly when customers can expect their power back on.

PG&E shut off power to about 1,000 customers in San Mateo County at around 1:00 a.m. this morning.

Power was also cut to 17 total counties throughout Northern California, in an outage that impacted about 179,000 customers.

As of now it is unclear as to when those customers will receive an all clear.

One of the counties that was impacted includes Sonoma County where the 10,000 plus acre Kincade Fire is currently burning.

PG&E only gave this statement regarding the blaze: “We are aware of the Kincade Fire in Geyserville and understand that CALFIRE is leading the response.  At this time, we have no further information and refer any additional questions to CALFIRE.”
