CALIFORNIA – PG&E said it has begun patrolling some lines de-energized by the public safety power shutoff that started Sunday morning. The shutoff affected 355,000 customers in 34 counties, according to the utility.

Monday morning, PG&E began issuing the weather “all clear” for portions of areas impacted by the shutoff. Crews said they will patrol over 17,000 miles of transmission and distribution lines to make sure that no damage or hazards exist before those lines can be re-energized.

PG&E said it expects to restore power to the remaining customers impacted by the PSPS event throughout the day on Monday and continue into Tuesday, with a majority of the customers restored by late Tuesday evening.

In many areas, high winds and fire-critical weather will continue through Tuesday morning, so power restoration efforts cannot occur in those areas until the weather conditions improve and the fire danger subsides.

Restoration may be delayed for some customers if crews are required to repair significant damage to individual lines, which could be caused by wind-blown branches and other debris.

PG&E said patrols have begun in portions of Colusa, Glenn, Shasta, Tehama, and Yuba counties. PG&E said they expect to restore power to all customers by 10 p.m. Tuesday.
