SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — PG&E says they will be moving forward with power shutoffs Tuesday due to a severe wind event.
PG&E is expected to shut off power to 605,000 customers in portions of 29 counties across California.
Like the last rounds, the blackout will affect parts of eight out of the nine Bay Area counties.
San Francisco will once again remain the only county without an outage.
The following counties are expected to be impacted: Alameda, Alpine, Amador, Butte, Calaveras, Contra Costa, El Dorado, Humboldt, Kern, Lake, Marin, Mendocino, Napa, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou, Solano, Sonoma, Tehama, Trinity, Tuolumne, Yolo and Yuba.
Check the map below to see if your address may be impacted by the shutoff:
Strong winds are expected to start Tuesday morning in the North Valley, North Bay, and Sierra Foothills.
By early Wednesday morning, the wind event will move into the Bay Area.
On Monday, PG&E began restoring power to those impacted by Saturday’s shutoff.
As of 5:30 p.m., PG&E says they’ve restored power to about 375,000 to 400,000 of those customers. But still, around 630,000 are without power.
PG&E says they will continue to restore power through Tuesday morning, yet some areas may not get power back at all before the next shutoff.
That includes the areas near the Kincade Fire or Geysers Facility.
If your power comes back on Monday night ahead of the next shutoff, be sure to use that time to charge devices and any other preparations needed to be taken.
