(AP) - Pacific Gas and Electric says it will be setting up more than two dozen community centers with restrooms and electronic-device charging stations for people in counties affected by a power shutdown aimed at reducing wildfire risks.
PG&E says it will open 28 centers across Northern California starting Wednesday at 8 a.m. They will stay open during daylight hours, the company said in a statement.
The centers will also have bottled water and air-conditioned seating for up to 100 people. They will be set up at fairgrounds, senior centers, shopping centers, in churches and other locations.
