CALIFORNIA – Due to high winds and dynamic weather conditions, PG&E said the customers remaining without power are expected to have it restored by late Tuesday evening or early Wednesday morning.
Power has been restored to more than 228,000 of the 345,000 customers impacted by the public safety power shutoff that started Sunday morning, according to PG&E.
PG&E said their crews began restoring power to customers where no damage or hazards to electrical equipment were found during inspections that began Monday morning in locations where the weather “all clear” was received.
In the North State, PG&E said 73% of power has been restored in Butte County, 13% in Plumas County, 99% in Shasta County, 67% in Yuba County. 100% of power has been restored in Tehama, Glenn, and Colusa.
Representatives with PG&E said a large part of Butte, Plumas, and Yuba counties did not get the weather “all-clear” to start restoration until late Tuesday morning and afternoon - which is why the restoration figures are lower.
