Widespread power outages in Northern California


By: YubaNet

NEVADA CITY, Calif. November 28, 2009 - Strong, gusty winds are causing power outages all over Northern California. PG&E crews will remain mobilized as long as necessary to restore power to all customers.

Nevada County: 7 outages affecting 1,000 customers
Yuba County: 4 outages affecting 920 customers
Placer County: 13 outages affecting 110 customers

Major outages in Nevada County as of 8:53 p.m. on Saturday:

Western Nevada City area: 50-499 customers affected by three outages, no estimated time of restoration

Grass Valley area: 50-499 customers affected by three outages, no estimated time of restoration

Penn Valley: One outage affecting up to 50 customers, crew en route

To receive updated outage information for their neighborhood, customers can call PG&E's outage information line at 1-800-743-5002.

If customers have gone without power for more than 48 hours, they can call PG&E's special outage hotline (1-888-743-4743 or 1-888-PGE-4PGE) to speak with a service representative about their particular outage and the services available.

Safety tips:

o Treat all downed power lines as if they are "live" or energized. Keep yourself and others away from them. Call 911, then notify PG&E at (800) 743-5002.

o Use battery-operated flashlights, not candles.

o Customers with generators should make sure they are properly installed by a licensed electrician. Improperly installed generators pose a significant danger to our crews.

o Unplug or turn off all electric appliances to avoid overloading circuits and fire hazards when power is restored. Simply leave a single lamp on to alert you when power returns. Turn your appliances back on one at a time when conditions return to normal.
