Downed Lines Cause Power Outage And Road Closure In Amador County 

Downed power lines snarled traffic on a busy Amador County roadway, delaying bus routes and causing a power outage as well. The power lines went down around 11:50 AM on Shake Ridge Road near Quartz Mountain Road, completely blocking Shake Ridge. The roadway was cleared around 3 PM. The situation also caused a power outage for a little more than 400 PG&E customers. The power lines came down when the power pole holding them up broke for unknown reasons.  PG&E reported that power was restored to all but 6 customers at around 2:20 pm, and PG&E estimates that the remaining 6 customers will have power restored by midnight tonight.
