CALIFORNIA - PG&E said they have restored power to almost all customers impacted by the recent blackout that started on Wednesday.

Approximately 50,000 customers in 11 counties were impacted by the most recent blackout.

PG&E said once the weather subsided and the weather “all clear” was given, PG&E began the patrol and restoration process Thursday morning. Essentially all customers affected by the blackout who could receive power were restored within 24 hours, the utility said.

To date, PG&E said they confirmed 4 instances of weather-related damage and hazards to its system in the shutoff-impacted areas, and the company has either completed or is working to complete those repairs.

Examples include downed lines and vegetation on power lines. PG&E said they will submit a report detailing the damages to the California Public Utilities Commission within 10 days of the completion of the PSPS.

The last two days saw quite a bit of rain in Northern California. Today we could see more but the showers look to be more isolated today than in previous days. Highs today are expected to reach the upper 50s to lower 60s.
