SAN FRANCISCO, Ca.
This morning, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) began 48-hour advance notifications
to customers about a potential Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) in portions of 22 counties.
Worsening dry conditions and expected high wind gusts pose an increased risk for damage and
sparks on the electric system that have the potential to ignite fires in areas with dry vegetation.
High fire-risk conditions are expected to begin early Wednesday morning and continue
throughout Thursday. Once the high winds subside, currently expected to be Thursday
mid-morning, PG&E will inspect the de-energized lines to ensure they were not
damaged during the wind event, and then restore power. PG&E will safely restore
power in stages as quickly as possible, with the goal of restoring most customers by
end of day Thursday, based on the current weather conditions.
