ANDERSON, Calif. - Residents off of Happy Valley Road in the Anderson area have been without electricity since late Tuesday night due to snow and downed power lines.

They have been working to clear what downed trees they can, but they say they are frustrated and just want a straight answer from PG&E as to when their power will be restored.

Resident Kitty Lightfoot said, "I've had two times that they've said the power was going to be back on. Two days ago, it was six o'clock. Yesterday, it was 8 o'clock last night. And still no power."

Another neighbor, David Anderson, complained as well. "They said Friday night.  If you don't get power on by six, it could be up to Sunday."

Anderson said his wife then heard that it could be Tuesday before their power will be restored.

A representative from PG&E said there are currently about 481 people in that area without power and crews are out in full force working to clear trees and restore power.

Officials from Redding's electric utility (REU) said they have restored 98 percent of the over 30,000 people who were without power.

Cooler weather the next few days before we warm up again this weekend flirting with more record high temperatures. By next week we get even cooler but we also have the possibility of high fire danger next week.
