PARADISE, Calif. -- Many PG&E customers in Paradise remain in the dark, as the utility says it's considering reimbursing Northern California customers affected by the blackouts.

"The music, the sound of music now in Paradise that you hear every night, generators going everywhere around you," said Brannon Pruis, a Camp Fire survivor living in Paradise.

Paradise is in the dark. Neighbors we spoke with said they've been out of power since Thursday.

"It changes your life. It puts you in a depression, it makes life so much more difficult," said David Alves, a Camp Fire survivor living in Paradise.

Amidst back to back nights in the dark, PG&E says it's now considering reimbursing customers affected by the October 9th power shutoff. The utility's president says details still need to be hammered out.

"I seriously doubt that they would have any kind of compensation to make up for this, you can't make up you're roughing it and camping out when the power goes out," Pruis said. 

"Well it helps but it doesn't compare to what we're going through," Alves said.
