PSPS in Surrounding Areas

With a red-flag warning in effect, PG&E anticipates turning off the power for safety starting late this afternoon in nine counties in the Sierra Foothills and North Bay. PG&E continues to monitor hot, dry, and windy weather over the next few days and anticipates that it will need to shut off power starting this evening. Those areas include portions of Butte, El Dorado, Nevada, Placer, Sutter, and Yuba counties in the Sierra Foothills and Lake, Napa, and Sonoma counties in the North Bay. This potential Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) could affect approximately 124,000 customers within those nine counties. To support customers in the potentially impacted counties, PG&E will open Community Resource Centers in multiple locations on Tuesday September 24th at 8am. The centers will be open during daylight hours only and will provide restrooms, bottled water, electronic device charging, and air-conditioned seating for up to 100 customers each. PG&E provided early warning notification of the PSPS and will share updates until power is restored to those affected. Stay informed on the latest PSPS updates at pge.com/pspsupdates.
