SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – Approximately 630,000 Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) customers lost power since Sunday's major atmospheric river storm, approximately 10% of the utility's 5.5. million customers. 

PG&E'S Emergency Operations Center and hundreds of crews are still assessing damage, making needed repairs, and restoring power. The storm damaged winds, delivered record rain totals, and flooding and debris flow. 

The storm was one of the most potent to hit Northern and Central California in over a decade, according to PG&E. 

As of 5 p.m. Monday evening, power has been restored to approximately 580,000 customers, leaving about 50,000 customers impacted.

PG&E continues to respond with approximately 3,000 electric and tree personnel on the job and hundreds of more employees are staffing the storm centers.

The rain with strong winds produced the most storm-related impact seen in the PG&E territory in the month of October dating back to 2009, PG&E said.

Wind gusts exceeded 70 mph across Santa Clara, Marin, Plumas, Contra Costa, Placer, San Mateo, Butte, and Napa counties.

PG&E crews will continue to work overnight Monday and into the week until all customer's power is restored.
