After yesterday’s webinar, where the utility promised more focused updates, this morning’s update provided to us contains the first detailed summary of damage assessed so far.

According to the update, “In Nevada County alone, we have identified more than 1,214 instances of damage. That includes:

  • 307 power poles
  • 580 locations where the conductor or the line needs repair
  • 171 crossarms
  • 70 transformers

Vast accumulations of snow, downed trees and other hazards continue to prevent assess and repair equipment.

We reached out to more than 100 other utilities for mutual aid to help bolster our forces in the field. Currently, crews from the City of Roseville, SMUD, Eugene, Ore., Public Service New Mexico, Tillamook and Lower Valley Energy are assisting. We are relentlessly following up with other mutual aid resources to keep resources heading our way. We have deployed temporary generation to eleven locations including hospitals, warming centers and substations to support customer restoration as soon as possible.”

Currently, 10,730 customers are still offline in Nevada County, 4,643 in El Dorado County, 4,313 in Placer County and 642 in Sierra County.
