UPDATE: 4:43 p.m. Monday, Sept. 28 - PG&E crews said they continue to patrol power lines and expect to restore power to nearly all customers Monday evening. Currently, there are about 4,000 customers without power.

PG&E said it turned off power to customers in the foothills of Shasta, Tehama, Butte, Plumas, and Yuba counties, and others as far south as Calaveras County, ahead of strong winds, low humidity, dry fuel conditions, and Red Flag Warnings.

After the severe weather passed Monday morning, PG&E said it began patrols and power restoration, restoring power in steps.

PG&E said it has restored power to more than three-quarters of the 16,945 customers in the North Valley who were affected by the Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS).
