NORTHERN CALIFORNIA - PG&E will conduct a public safety power shutoff impacting 37,000 customers in parts of 15 counties Wednesday evening.

PG&E said it is calling this power shutoff due to a high-wind event combined with low humidity and dry vegetation. Due to changes in the weather forecast, PG&E has decreased the number of customers expected to be impacted by 31%.

Lines will be de-energized starting around 8 p.m. Wednesday. Officials said the de-energization process will continue throughout the evening, depending upon location, across the Sacramento Valley, Northern Sierra, and elevated terrain of the North and East Bay.


Shutoff Timeline

  • Shasta County: After 8 p.m. on Wednesday
  • Western Tehama County (west of I-5 or near I-5): After 8 p.m. on Wednesday
  • Eastern Tehama County (generally along Highway 36 East and north of there): Early Thursday morning, pre-dawn
  • Butte, Glenn, Colusa and Plumas counties: Pre-dawn hours on Thursday morning

Once the weather subsides on Friday morning, PG&E crews will patrol the de-energized lines to determine if they were damaged during the wind event and repair any damage found. Crews said they will then safely restore power in stages and as quickly as possible.
